Virginia Well Records Sumatra-Andaman Islands Earthquake

Someone sent me a newspaper report about a well in West Virginia being affected by the tsunami. It sounded like hokum to me until I followed a link a few steps to:


Looks like water level in observation well rose about 1.8 feet 1 hour after earthquake, then plummeted about 3 feet in the next 45 minutes before returning to a jittery sinusoidal, probably tidal oscillation (which had been smooth before) about 2.2 feet below ground level.

Mobile Phones and Health - Get off that mobile, expert tells children

See Press Releases below.

A propos to mobile phone technology and children's health:

We have received numerous calls in the past 2 weeks for parents and teachers who are concerned about their children, students and fellow teachers who find themselves in classrooms where antennas sites are nearby and often are in the range of RF radiation coming from these antennas. We are now working on an effort to inform the NEA (National Education Association) about these situations and about the concern that teachers, school staff members and students alike are finding themselves in potentially unhealthy environments at schools.

Please e-mail your current contact information to me if you are involved in such a situation in your own area, or if your know teachers or parents who are. To get the attention of and action from a large national organization like the NEA, it will require their seeing that this is indeed an issue of national importance.

If you have contacts with officers (local or national) of the ATF (American Federation of Teachers), the other national professional organization for teachers, please make us aware of that information as well. Joint involvement from the NEA and the ATF would be ideal.

Thank you - Janet Newton

Mobile Phones and Health [link to full report]

Mobile Phones and Health

The Board of NRPB has published a major document1 on mobile phones and health. The review updates an earlier report published in 2000 by the UK Independent Expert Group on Mobile Phones and Health (IEGMP, Chairman Sir William Stewart). The main conclusion is that there is no hard evidence at present that the health of the public, in general, is being affected adversely by the use of mobile phone technologies, but uncertainties remain and a continued precautionary approach to their use is recommended until the situation is further clarified.

In line with the use of a precautionary approach the document also recommends that:

* improvements be made in ensuring ready access by the public to all up to date and relevant information related to the use of mobile phones and of masts.
* the planning process associated with the erection of mobile phone base stations be subject to independent review.
* the legal responsibilities and regulations in relation to the installation of microcells and picocells should be clarified and more information about their deployment be made available.
* monitoring of potential exposures from 3G base stations be carried out concomitantly with the rollout of the network.
* a formal inspection procedure be set in place to ensure that exclusion zones around base stations are clearly identified.
* comparative information on the SAR values of different phones be made readily available to better inform consumer choice.
* particular attention be given to how best to minimise exposure of potentially vulnerable sub-groups such as children and to consider the possibility that there may be other sub-groups who may be particularly sensitive to radiowaves.
* a continuing research programme on the possible health effects of mobile phone technologies be strongly supported.

The Board also places high importance on accumulating knowledge of exposure levels and possible biological effects of TETRA based technology used by the police. It additionally welcomes the intention of government to increase the penalty for the offence of using a hand-held mobile phone while driving by making it endorsable with three penalty points and an increased fine of £60.

Sir William Stewart, Chairman of the NRPB, said:

“In relation to mobile phone technology, our primary focus at NRPB is to ensure that the health and well-being of the general public is not being adversely affected by this technology. Today there are over 50 million mobile phones in use in the UK compared with 4.5 million a decade ago and numbers in use have doubled since 2000. The fact is that the use of mobile phones is now part of every-day life as an important means of easy communication by industry, security services, and the general public – and sometimes even as a fashion accessory. But because everyone has one does not necessarily mean that they are without potential adverse health effects".

Sir William also said:

"The fact is that the widespread use of mobile phones is a relatively recent phenomenon and it is possible that adverse health effects could emerge after years of prolonged use. The evidence base necessary to allow us to make firm judgements has not yet been accumulated. What we can say is that there is as yet no hard evidence of adverse health effects on the general public, but because of the current uncertainties we recommend a continued precautionary approach to the use of mobile phone technologies. This approach should be adopted by all involved in this area – including government, the mobile phone industry and all who choose to purchase a mobile phone for themselves, or their family, or their children”.

Mymoshop.com Product Withdrawal Statement 11 Jan. 05

Communic8 Ltd, the distributor for CK Telecom Product HI001, branded MYMO for the UK has withdrawn the product for sale.

This product was designed specifically for the security of young children, has full parental controls, and calls just five numbers designated by the parent, it has no screen games or text facilities. It was a product to be used in emergencies, and was recommended for occasional use only. It was as our catch line states "a little peace of mind" for Parents concerned about the welfare of their children in a very insecure world.

We have never advertised or marketed this product, other than to parents, selling directly online, rather than through high street retailers and capitalising on the pester power so many retailers rely on. The phone is widely available across Europe though not through us, in leading toy shops, supermarkets and mobile retailers.

We have always taken a responsible line in marketing this product, consulting with leading children's charities and spokesmen like Mr John Carr of the NCH and MET Police NMCPU. We have listened to and followed their advice all the way.

We do however respect the latest report of Sir William Stewart into the long term dangers associated with the exposure to radio waves produced by mobile phones. The decision to withdraw the product is taken in light of this new evidence, suggesting that long term exposure can damage health, especially in the underdeveloped scull tissue of very young children.

Although we feel the product if used as recommended with parental guidance is safe, we are not experts in either the radiation or medical fields that Sir William and his team are. It would be foolish, ignorant even if we were to simply ignore these findings as we are sure the major manufacturers will find all too easy to do. Simple common sense has convinced us, that even the remotest possibility of our product becoming health risk to any child is unacceptable.

We sincerely hope the networks and manufacturers deliberately targeting young children will follow the lead of a small independent company. We apologize to our customers for the inconvenience, and than them very much for their support for a product we had hoped would make children safer.

We will be concentrating on our other products including the SilverPhone for the vulnerable elderly. www.silverPhone.co.uk

More news from Europe on RF safety policy, research, etc.

5 January 2005 - EMF-team Finland issues Helsinki Appeal 2005 to members of the European Parliament

20 December 2004 - Swedish Radiation Protection Board (SSI) released the report of its Independent Expert Group on Electromagnetic Fields - evaluation of recent radiofrequency radiation research.

November 2004 - Report of European Union's EMF REFLEX Research Project is released. Animal cells exposed to mobile phone radiation showed a significant increase in single and double-strand DNA breaks. The damage could not always be repaired by the cell. See summary and article from the journal Nature below.

5 January 2005 - EMF-team Finland issues Helsinki Appeal 2005 to members of the European Parliament. In it physicians and researchers call on the European Parliament to apply the Precautionary Principle to electromagnetic fields, especially in the radio- and microwave- frequency bands. They criticize the present RF safety standards that do not recognize the biological effects caused by non-thermal exposures to non-ionizing radiation [i.e., radiofrequency radiation.] They also call for continued refunding of the REFLEX EMF research program. See complete statement at: http://www.emrpolicy.org/news/headlines/index.htm
Members of the public who support this appeal are encouraged to send their signatures to EMF-team Finland.

20 December 2004 - Swedish Radiation Protection Board (SSI) released the report of its Independent Expert Group on Electromagnetic Fields - evaluation of recent radiofrequency radiation research.

From the Executive Summary p. 4:
Exposure of children to RF and ELF fields:

Physical, chemical and therapeutic agents have the potential for affecting development, depending on the nature of the agent and the timing and magnitude of the exposure. For ELF [Extremely Low Frequency, i.e., power lines and building wiring] magnetic fields there are indications that children might be more sensitive; however, we lack the understanding of how, or even if, these fields might be involved in leukemogenesis. Widespread exposure to these fields is recent, and very little is known about the potential sensitivity of children 6to RF fields. Given the paucity of data indicating a particular vulnerability of children to EMF, it may be tempting to conclude that children are not more susceptible than adults to RF exposure. However, the absence of an observed effect does not necessarily mean that exposure is harmless, especially if crucial studies focusing on children are yet to be done. Given scientific uncertainty SSI has adopted precautionary approaches for both ELF and RF which we endorse.

From the Discussion section on page 34:

To date, little is known about the levels of radiofrequency radiation exposure in the general population from sources such as mobile phones being used by oneself or other people, mobile phone base stations, and radio and television transmitters. Measurements that have been performed have usually been made as a result of public concern about base station exposures or other specific sources, and have therefore been made at locations that could be assumed to have higher fields than would be the case if measurement locations were selected randomly. Furthermore, all measurements have been stationary, and these is today no knowledge about the level of exposure that an individual will have throughout the day . . .

There is need for information about the personal exposure to RF fields in the general population, to enhance the understanding of the relative importance of exposure from base stations close to the home, from radio and television transmitters, and from the use of mobile phones . . . Studies with personal RF exposure measurements of randomly selected samples of the general population are strongly encouraged.

See complete report at:

The Report of the European Union's REFLEX Project (Risk Evaluation of Potential Environmental Hazards from Low Frequency Electromagnetic Field Exposure Using Sensitive in vitro Methods) was released in November, 2004. The Project studied ELF and RF exposures to various cell types. See link below. It's a long download, 291 pages, so be patient).


Of particular interest after as cursory read through -
pp. 1-3 Foreward by Ross Adey
pp. 7-8 Introduction - the goals of the REFLEX Project
pp. 239-242 Section 7.0 POLICY RELATED BENEFITS.

From 7.12 Summary
... the omnipresence of EMF's in infrastructures and consumer products have become a topic of public concern. This is due to the fear of people that based on the many conflicting research data a risk to their health cannot be excluded with some certainty.

Therefore, the overall objective of REFLEX was to find out whether or not the fundamental biological processes at the cellular and molecular level support such an assumption. For this purpose, possible effects of EMFs on cellular events controlling key functions, including those involved in carcinogenesis and in the pathogenesis of neurodegenerative disorders, were studied through focussed research. Failure to observe the occurrence of such key critical events in living cells after EMF exposure would have suggested that further research efforts in this field could be suspended and financial resources be reallocated to the investigation of more important issues. But as clearly demonstrated, the results of the REFLEX project show the way into the opposite direction.

Key emphases of the REFLEX Project were to develop reliable exposure equipment, to assure that exposure parameters were consistent and thoroughly documented, and to examine how differences in techniques for cell culture preparation such as staining of specimens yielded differing results. Along with consistency in genotype of study specimens, these emphases are of crucial importance to the replication of studies from one laboratory to another.

Mobile-phone radiation damages lab DNA
by Helen Pearson

European studies point to cellular harm.

Phone users should exercise caution, researchers warn.
© Punchstock
Radiation from mobile or cellular phones harms the DNA in human cells, according to an extensive, pan-European laboratory study.

The research does not provide definitive proof that equivalent radiation harms people who use mobile phones. But the researchers emphasize that more extensive studies to test this link should be done, and that, until then, phone users should be cautious.

Controversy has raged for years over whether the electromagnetic radiation emitted by mobile phones can trigger tumours or Alzheimer's disease, or can otherwise harm human health. But the evidence showing whether and how radiation damages cells, and so might cause disease, has been scant and contradictory.

The most recent news comes from the REFLEX study, a four-year project performed by twelve research groups in seven European countries, whose results were published online this month, although they have not yet appeared in a peer-reviewed journal. "We have found a mechanism that could cause chronic disease," concludes study leader Franz Adlkofer of Verum, a research organization based in Munich, Germany.

"There is no doubt that mobile phone radiation causes DNA damage under certain conditions." - Remarks of Reflex Project leader Franz Adlkofer of Verum, a research organization based in Munich, Germany

The team found that levels of radiation equivalent to those from a phone prompted breaks in individual strands of DNA in a variety of human cells. These types of damage have been linked with cancer. The level of injury increased with the intensity of radiation and the length of exposure.

The researchers also saw hints, but not conclusive evidence, of other cell changes, including damage to chromosomes, alterations in the activity of certain genes and a boosted rate of cell division.

Doubtless damage

The damaging effects occurred when cells were exposed to electromagnetic radiation of intensities between 0.3 and 2 watts per kilogram. This overlaps with the level of radiation typically emitted by phones of around 0.2 to 1 watt per kilogram.

Adlkofer acknowledges that the work, like previous studies showing harm from mobile phone radiation, is likely to be criticized. But he says: "I've seen experiments done 100 times in several labs. To me there is no doubt that it causes DNA damage under certain conditions."

The Scent of Fear

The assembly line of carnage in George W. Bush's war in Iraq continues unabated. Nightmares don't last this long, so the death and destruction must be real. You know you're in serious trouble when the politicians and the military brass don't even bother suggesting that there's light at the end of the tunnel. The only thing ahead is a deep and murderous darkness.

Fallujah, City of Ghosts

Film reveals true destruction to ghost city Falluja:

Fresh evidence has emerged of the extent of destruction and appalling conditions in Falluja, still deserted two months after a major US offensive against the insurgent stronghold.


City of ghosts

On November 8, the American army launched its biggest ever assault on the Iraqi city of Falluja, considered a stronghold for rebel fighters. The US said the raid had been a huge success, killing 1,200 insurgents. Most of the city's 300,000 residents, meanwhile, had fled for their lives. What really happened in the siege of Falluja? In a joint investigation for the Guardian and Channel 4 News, Iraqi doctor Ali Fadhil compiled the first independent reports from the devastated city, where he found scores of unburied corpses, rabid dogs - and a dangerously embittered population...

Vulnerability of Republicans in America

Reckless Expenditure on Weapons

By Charles Mercieca, Ph.D.

In their effort to regain the reigns of government, the Democratic Party must not only emphasize the need for Americans to have free health care and education, they need to become highly critical of the Republican reckless expenditure on weapons. They must show that this expenditure is meant merely to boost the product of those big corporations, headed by the weapons industry that contributed money to their political campaign. Democrats must make it very clear on a constant basis that when Republicans speak of national defense and security, they do not have in mind the welfare of the American people, but the profit that comes from the lethal product of their vicious benefactors.

There may occur a much more terrible tsunami in the Atlantic before 2006, due to the rapid present global warming of the Polar and Antarctic ice caps

Well I didn't know about that case (Angela Canning), but 16 years ago in 1989 I was the centre of a TV and newpaper media debate on cot death when I pointed out that RF/MW radiation could have been responsible for a cluster of five cot deaths within five miles and within two hours (Channel Four, Daily Mail), on the same day when Farnborough was testing a new moon radio transmitter. My previous study on cot death near EMF sources is posted on our website and was presented as a platform presentation at one of the BEMS meetings ( I forget which year). The next year Sebastian, the son of TV News presenter Ann Diamond died of cot death. She lived in Camden right next to the electric railway into Euston/Kings Cross. No Govt.has ever picked up this bag of worms: the NRPB promised a study to look into my claim but they never allowed the results to be published.

Whilst writing, there is a much bigger bag of worms on the way: I am concerned, from my calculations, that there may occur a much more terrible tsunami in the Atlantic before 2006, due to the rapid present global warming of the Polar and Antarctic ice caps (about 20 percent of the world's oceans) increasing the weight of water likely to press down on the long vertical fault line off the coast of Portugal. This will probably also trigger a major landslide in the Canaries, adding to the catastrophe. A similar thing happened in 1755, but the global population was much smaller then. It has probably happened in prehistory before then too, according to Plato, who talked of "one terrible night and day when the land was suddenly inundated with large loss of life, leaving behind a great mudflat". He also blamed mankind's disregard for the forces of nature and man's "overweaning hubris". Global warming is due to infra red radiation being unable to escape the planet because it is being trapped by greenhouse gases from industrial power generation, motor vehicles, and other technologies.

Lobbyismus schadet Wirtschaftsstandort Deutschland

Neue Technik politisch verhindert: Lobbyismus schadet Wirtschaftsstandort Deutschland (11.01.05)

Die Deutsche Umwelthilfe (DUH) hat vor negativen Konsequenzen der "innigen Verbindungen" zwischen Automobilindustrie und Politik gewarnt. Der "Raubtierlobbyismus" einiger Konzerne gefährde die Qualität deutscher Produkte, wenn durch politische Einflussnahme fortschrittliche Entwicklungen wie Rußfilter und Sprit-Einsparung torpediert würden. So dürften auf dem wichtigsten Zukunftsmarkt China demnächst nur noch die wenigsten deutschen Autos verkauft werden, weil sie zuviel Benzin verbrauchen. Aus Umweltgründen und zur Sicherung der Wettbewerbsfähigkeit seien daher auch für Deutschland und die EU Obergrenzen für den Kraftstoff-Verbrauch erforderlich.

Stand Up for Freedom

From: Anthony D. Romero Executive_Director@ACLU.org

In 10 days, George W. Bush will take the Presidential oath and will vow to "protect and defend the Constitution of the United States."

More than 73,000 people have taken our "Refuse to Surrender" pledge to help the ACLU press the President to uphold his oath of office. On Inauguration Day we plan to activate signers of the "Refuse to Surrender" pledge to send a barrage of emails to Capitol Hill to let our elected representatives know that the hundreds of thousands of ACLU members and supporters want them to make sure the President keeps his oath. The more people who sign our pledge, the stronger that message will be.

You can help us reach our goal of 100,000 pledge signers by Inauguration Day, January 20, simply by asking 2 friends to join you in signing the pledge. Send them our "Refuse to Surrender" postcard and ask them to stand with you to defend freedom in 2005.

If each of our online supporters can get just 2 people, we'll not only reach our goal, we'll surpass it...and take an important step in holding the President and other leaders in Washington accountable on protecting and defending our most fundamental freedoms.

There is so much at stake, from callous disregard for international human rights to continued spying by the FBI on religious and political groups...from making permanent the privacy-stealing provisions of the Patriot Act to promoting a Constitutional amendment...

Help us make the voice of freedom heard on Inauguration Day and ask 2 friends to take the pledge right now. Just click here to ask them.

Winning the Unwinnable War

Iraq: Winning the Unwinnable War

By losing the trust of the Iraqi people, the Bush administration has already lost the war. Moderate Iraqis can still win it, but only if they wean themselves from Washington and get support from elsewhere. To help them, the United States should reduce and ultimately eliminate its military presence, train Iraqis to beat the insurgency on their own, and rally Iran and European allies to the cause.


Rumsfeld's Legacy

The Iraq Syndrome?

Just as Vietnam became McNamara's War, Iraq has become Rumsfeld's War. From the outset, Secretary of Defense Donald H. Rumsfeld has inserted himself in almost every aspect of the campaign, from military strategy to postwar planning, and served as the war's public face. In doing so, he's claimed that one of the advantages of such centralized control was that there was a clear point of accountability.



Still trust the FDA? Still Trust Them to Vaccinate Your Kids?

Read about this crime against humanity and the total corruption of the FDA in 1981 by Donald Rumsfeld...

From the November 2003 Idaho Observer:

Rumsfeld's legacy

From mass vaccination to aspartame and back again

Then and current Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld was reportedly the architect of the plan to ensure that, “every man, woman and child” in America be vaccinated against the swine flu in 1976.

Within a few weeks, some 47 million Americans were vaccinated with the experimental vaccine. The program resulted in at least 113 deaths, nearly 4,000 cases of paralysis and an epidemic of Guillean Barre -- a polio-like disease. It is impossible to calculate the longterm damage the swine flu disaster has caused in terms of human suffering, chronic disease care and genetic damage being passed on to children.

Insider reports indicate Rumsfeld orchestrated the swine flu fiasco to “add some spark to the campaign of President Ford...” wrote author and marine biologist William Sargent.

In 1978, Rumsfeld became CEO of the G.W. Searle Corp. By June, 1981, his political muscle overcame science so that the deadly neurotoxic artificial sweetener aspartame could achieve U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval.

The FDA has linked aspartame to 92 symptoms including paralysis, blindness, neuroses, sexual dysfunction, asthma, diabetes, chronic fatigue and death. According to the Centers for Disease Control, nearly 500,000 Americans each year are simply dropping dead from cardiac arrest. A growing coalition of physicians and researchers believe aspartame is behind these and many other unexplained deaths.

Rumsfeld was also instrumental in promoting the recent mass smallpox vaccination plan that was ultimately scuttled because too many people were experiencing adverse reactions (including death) to the vaccine.

Rumsfeld is again the secretary of defense and again he promoted a plan to vaccinate every man, woman and child against a manufactured disease scare with an untested experimental vaccine.

Is it just a coincidence this man is involved when programs to poison the entire nation are being planned, promoted and executed? What is the real Rumsfeld “public health” agenda?

Can Rumsfeld "Defend" Himself Against Aspartame Lawsuit?

Much controversy has surrounded the issue of whether or not the artificial sweetener aspartame is safe for consumption. However, the hot debate has reached an all-time high, as a $350-million class-action lawsuit has been filed in order to prove how deadly aspartame consumption truly is to the human body.

Also included in the lawsuit is the central role played by Donald Rumsfeld, current United States Secretary of Defense, in helping to get aspartame approved through the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Plaintiffs claim that, despite objections of numerous FDA health researchers and negative studies, Rumsfeld used his political power and influence to get aspartame approved by the FDA.

Those charged in the lawsuit are being accused of knowingly using the neurotoxic aspartame as a sugar substitute in the manufacture of Equal, while fully aware that consumption of it could lead to a plethora of health problems.

As calls for US Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld to resign are prompting questions from Senators, about possible breakdowns in the Pentagon chain of command leading to prisoner abuse in Iraq, Betty Martini founder of Mission Possible, an international 'Aspartame resistance' movement, writes to Senator Biden to explain that allowing torture of prisoners in Iraq may not have been the only reprehensible action Rumsfeld should answer for.

The Betrayal of F Company

Soldiers For The Truth, operated by retired Army Colonel David Hackworth, published a series of four articles about F Comany, 425th Infantry, Michigan Army National Guard. The e-mails sent by soldiers in the unit to SFTT and other media outets describe very serious leadership and morale problems among U.S. troops fighting in the Iraq War.



A disturbing national disgrace: America now faces a growing population of homeless Iraq War veterans. Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld and Veterans Affairs Secretary Nominee Jim Nicholson should be forced to tell us how many combat veterans are homeless, how many recent war veterans have psychological problems, and what our government is doing to provide healthcare for those veterans.


Pope: Bush was Wrong About Iraq

According to the article below, President George Bush misled Pope John Paul II about the Iraq War. What the article fails to mention is how Bush's envoy to the Vatican, former Republican Party leader Jim Nicholson, faces Senate confirmation in the next few weeks to head the Department of Veterans Affairs. Nicholson should be questioned about any role he may have played possibly misleading the head of the Catholic Church about the Iraq War -- especially since he may be responsible for their combat-related healthcare and disability benefits.

Bush Violated FCC Laws

by Larry S. Rolirad

President Bush and others in his administration have violated FCC laws when they gave a million dollars to right-wing groups and individuals to promote the “No Child Left Behind” law. The same FCC laws, which originated in the 1950s to combat the illegal practice called “payola”, should be applied to President Bush and everyone in his administration who participated in the crime. “Payola” was a common practice in the ‘50s and ‘60s when music corporations paid disc jockeys large amounts of money to give airtime to songs they wanted to promote. This practice was deemed by Congress to be illegal and they passed laws prohibiting “payola” through stronger FCC laws. Since President Bush spent $240,000 of our hard earned taxpayer's money to pay to have a radio jockey, Armstrong Williams, promote Bush's law, then Bush should be indicted under the same laws in which music corporations and deejays were indicted fifty years ago. It's called “payola” and its practice is illegal....


The Democratic Consultants Whose Bad Advice Handed Bush the Victory

by Doug Ireland

The National Journal's Daily Poll Track yesterday brought news of a new national survey that ought to make Democrats disgusted with the leadership of their party sit up and take notice: “Television advertising alone cost more than a billion and a half dollars in 2004, but who exactly was supposed to get the message?,” asked the Journal. “A new Annenberg survey found that only 15 percent of voters considered voting for the other presidential candidate at any point in the election cycle. Supporters of President Bush and John Kerry were statistically even: Eighty-four percent of Bush voters and 85 percent of Kerry voters said there was never a time they thought they would cast ballots for the other candidate.”....


The Last Man to Concede

by Sheila Samples

On November 3, just hours after Democratic vice presidential hopeful John Edwards made a national announcement that he and John Kerry were not going to concede until all the votes were counted, Kerry grabbed the spotlight and conceded -- before all the votes were counted. Kerry took the money and ran. Seems he couldn't stick around because he and the missus were spending Christmas at a holiday extravaganza in Sun Valley as personal guests of California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, who just weeks before had fired up the Republican Convention at Madison Square Garden by declaring that “America is safer with George W. Bush as president.” According to the San Francisco Chronicle, “The former candidate, largely AWOL post-election, was seen in intense conversation with Dennis Miller.” It would be another two months before Kerry got around to emailing his millions of stunned, exhausted, and much poorer supporters to let them know that, although he was committed to “ensuring that every vote in this election is counted,” alas, he wouldn't be joining the protest of the Ohio Electors....


The Nixon Option

From the prison torture scandal, to the Salvador Option, to natural disaster miserliness and photo opportunism . . . perhaps we might consider pursuing the Nixon option for the Bush Administration?


Where Will It End?

by William Fisher

Though it received thousands of pages of documents from the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) regarding prisoner abuse by the Defense Department (DOD) at the US Naval base at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) charges that the FBI investigation was “sharply scaled back”, records related to the FBI’s investigation are still being withheld, and those it has received are so heavily redacted (blacked out) that they “raise more questions than they answer.”....

Maschendraht als letzte Rettung gegen Strahlen

Mobilfunk: Netzwerk gegründet


Hohenpeißenberg - Die Mobilfunkkritiker im Pfaffenwinkel haben ein regionales Netzwerk gegründet. Am vergangenen Freitag trafen sich rund 30 Interessenten im Gasthof "Schächen", um die Einrichtung ins Leben zu rufen, die vor allem dem Informationsaustausch dienen soll. Außerdem wurde die Organisation regelmäßiger Veranstaltungen beschlossen.

Mit dem Netzwerk wollen die Mobilfunkkritiker einerseits die Reaktionsgeschwindigkeit bei Protesten erhöhen, wenn ein neuer Sender ohne ausreichenden Abstand zur Bebauung errichtet wird, andererseits vorhandenes Wissen besser nutzen.

Die meisten Besucher kamen aus dem Landkreis Weilheim-Schongau, einige auch aus den angrenzenden Gemeinden in den Landkreisen Garmisch-Partenkirchen und Landsberg am Lech. Auch Vertreter aus Hofolding und Kirchheim bei München waren anwesend.

Der Erfahrungsaustausch lief bereits am ersten Abend an. Der Vorsitzende der Umweltinitiative Pfaffenwinkel, Hans Schütz, betonte, dass es nicht Ziel sei, das Rad der Geschichte zurückzudrehen. Mobilfunk sei Realität und als solche nicht zu ignorieren. Allerdings gelte es, die Gefahren durch die Strahlung zu minimieren. Dies sei kurzfristig durch die Verringerung der unnötig hohen Sendeleistung möglich, langfristig durch die Entwicklung von neuen Kommunikationstechnologien. Vor allem aber gelte es, über die Gefahren durch die Strahlung zu informieren. Diese gehe nicht nur von Handys aus, sondern auch von den schnurlosen DECT-Telefonen und anderen Kommuniktationssystemen.

Ein besonderes Problem sieht Schütz in der Haftungsfrage. Normalerweise müsse der Betreiber einer Anlage eine Versicherung abschließen, die für Schäden aufkommt, die durch den Betrieb der Anlage entstehen. Anders sei dies bei Mobilfunksendern. Seit 1999 würde kein Versicherungsunternehmen mehr einen Schutz gegen Schäden durch Strahlung anbieten, da das Risiko unkalkulierbar sei. Darin sieht Schütz einen Beweis für seine Behauptung, dass die Strahlung tatsächlich schädlich ist. Dass Bürger dennoch Antennen auf ihre Dächer montieren lassen, liegt nach seiner Einschätzung am Profit. "400 bis 500 Euro pro Monat" würden die Betreiber bei einer Vertragslaufzeit von 20 Jahren bezahlen. Für dieses Geld würde so mancher soziale und gesundheitliche Schäden in Kauf nehmen.

Der Sprecher der Hohenpeißenberger Bürgerinitiative "Die Besorgten Bürger", Dr. Heiner Hartmann, sieht durch die Sender, die zu nahe an Wohngebieten stehen, "das Recht auf körperliche Unversehrtheit verletzt". Mit der Strahlung müsse auf jeden Fall vorsichtig umgegangen werden, "solange wir nicht definitiv wissen, dass sie ungefährlich ist".

Marianne Buchmann aus Kirchheim bei München berichtete über ihr letztes Mittel im Kampf gegen die Strahlung. Mit einem feinen Maschendrahtzaun, der auch als Hasengitter bekannt ist, will sie ihr Haus abschirmen. Den 7,70 Meter hohen und 21 Meter langen Zaun hat der Bauausschuss ihrer Gemeinde bereits genehmigt.

Ein konkretes Ergebnis lieferte die Veranstaltung bereits. Es wurde beschlossen, eine Informationsdatenbank aufzubauen, in die alle Beteiligten ihr Wissen einbringen, um es anderen zur Verfügung zu stellen. Außerdem wurde der Ort für die nächste Informationsveranstaltung festgelegt. Sie findet in der Woche nach den Osterferien in Weilheim statt.

Mayan Elders Give Urgent Warning - Dringender Aufruf der Maya-Ältesten in Guatemala

by Mitch Battros – ECTV

I have just received an urgent notice from Adam Rubel of Saq Be’. Adam states he has just received word from Carlos Barrios (Mayan Elder), that earth changing events are “in motion” to escalate. No, not next year, not next month, but next week or next day.

The first thing Adam reminds us “not” do is hit the panic button. What is unfolding is in perfect order and the Earth has seen this many times before. However, it is suggested, and I am personally suggesting to you, that our collective influence can make a difference. I believe this is what our ancestors have told us all along. It says so in the Bible, in the Mayan Calendar, in Tibetan Sanskrit, Hopi Petroglyphs, Egyptian Hieroglyphs and the list is endless. No, this is not woo-woo, it is science. More on this below.

Mayan elders have specifically given warning to five continents. Three of which are named. 1) North America 2) Europe 3) Central America.

Through the ancient techniques of divination and tools of prophecy, the Mayan elders are calling forth to pay close attention to messages being set forth by ongoing earth changing events. The recent destruction that manifested in Indonesia is predicted to now occur rapidly upon five continents of the earth. This message is not meant to induce fear, but to give warning of preparation and remain aware of your surroundings. The elders are concerned about what has been presented in their recent divinations and they call to all humanity to warn their leaders and to work very hard at a spiritual level to prevent the impending destruction.

Adam reports this message has been verified and brought forth by various Mayan elders in Guatemala, and is meant for distribution to all humanity. Last years record breaking hurricanes and the 9.0 mag. earthquake with following tsunami in Indonesia have been warnings of possible coming floods in Europe and the US West Coast.

Prayer/Meditation Not Woo-Woo But Scientifically Grounded

Professor Richard Davidson (University of Wisconsin) just released his latest research on the power of meditation. I have sent word to Dr. Davidson to arrange an upcoming interview on Earth Changes TV ‘Radio Hour’. In a Washington Post article released earlier today, Professor Davidson reports over the past few years researchers at the University of Wisconsin have been working with Tibetan monks were able to translate those mental experiences into the scientific language of high-frequency gamma waves and brain synchrony, or coordination. They have pinpointed the left prefrontal cortex, an area just behind the left forehead, as the place where brain activity associated with meditation is especially inten! se. Many have long believed it is the “Pineal Gland”.

Davidson says his newest results from the meditation study, published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences in November shows that mental training through meditation (and presumably other disciplines) can itself change the inner workings and circuitry of the brain. Full Article:

Mayan Elders have put out a specific call for people around the world to join in prayer, meditation or whatever method of spirituality one engages in to unite on January 18th at the time of their local sunset (approx 6:00PM). This date is (9) Keme according to the sacred Mayan Cholq'ij calendar available at: http://www.sacredroad.org has the potential for protecting humanity from disaster.

There will be many major ceremonies in the Mayan communities for this purpose. An open invitation is extended to humanity that wish to join the Mayan people for the Waxa'qib B'atz' ceremonies on February 12th in Guatemala.


Urgent call from the Mayan elders of Guatemala


Through the ancient techniques of divination and tools of prophecy, the Mayan elders are calling forth to humanity at THIS TIME to pay closer attention to the messages being sent forth by the mother earth and to immediately take the actions they have been calling for, to unite in an effort to bring balance again upon our planet.

The recent destruction that manifested in Indonesia is predicted to now occur rapidly upon five continents of the earth. This message is not meant to induce fear, to the contrary, it is a call for bravery and for action. The elders are concerned about what has been presented in their recent divinations and they call to all humanity to warn their leaders and to work very hard at a spiritual level to prevent the impending destruction. This message, verified and brought forth by various Mayan elders in Guatemala, is for all of humanity.

The hurricanes in the US and the earthquake and tsunami in Indonesia have been warnings and we must now pay attention or the possibilities of floods in Europe, Los Angeles, earthquakes and other efforts of the mother earth to awaken us will manifest quickly.

There is a specific call for people around the world to join in prayer, meditation or whatever method of spirituality one engages in to unite on January 18th at the time of their local sunset (approx 6:00PM). This date is (9) Keme according to the sacred Mayan Cholq'ij calendar(more info on calendar available at: http://www.sacredroad.org ) and has the potential for protecting humanity from disaster.

There will be many major ceremonies in the Mayan communities for this purpose. An open invitation is extended to humanity that wish to join the Mayan people for the Waxa'qib B'atz' ceremonies on February 12th in Guatemala.

Again, this is a strong message, not meant to drive us to react in fear, for this will only negatively impact the level of destruction and our own circumstance. This is the opportunity for humanity to rise to the occasion and come together along the strong lines that unite us and overcome the obstacles that divide us.

Please distribute this message widely.

Dringender Aufruf der Maya-Ältesten in Guatemala

Durch die überlieferten Techniken der Weissagung und prophetischer Werkzeuge rufen die Maya-Ältesten die Menschheit in dieser Zeit auf, den Botschaften von Mutter Erde größere Aufmerksamkeit zu schenken und sofort die vorgeschlagenen Maßnahmen zu ergreifen, damit in vereintem Bemühen Gleichgewicht auf die Erde gebracht werden kann.

Nach den jüngsten Zerstörungen, die sich in Indonesien manifestierten, sind (ähnliche Ereignisse) auf fünf Kontinenten vorausgesagt. Diese Botschaft soll keine Furcht einflößen, im Gegenteil, sie ist ein Aufruf zur Tapferkeit und zum Handeln.

Die Ältesten sind besorgt über das, was ihnen in den jüngsten Weissagungen offenbart wurde, und sie rufen die gesamte Menschheit auf, ihre Führer zu warnen und auf der spirituellen Ebene hart zu arbeiten, um die bevorstehende Zerstörung zu verhindern.

Diese Botschaft, verifiziert und herausgebracht von verschiedenen Maya-Ältesten in Guatemala, ist an die gesamte Menschheit gerichtet.

Die Wirbelstürme in den USA und das Erdbeben und der Tsunami in Indonesien waren Warnungen, und wir müssen nun mögliche Fluten in Europa und Los Angeles gewärtigen. Erdbeben und andere Bemühungen von Mutter Erde, uns zum Erwachen zu bewegen, manifestieren sich rasch.

Insbesondere rufen wir die Menschen rund um die Welt auf, an Gebeten, Meditationen oder anderen Formen spiritueller Aktivität teilzunehmen, und zwar gemeinsam am 18. Januar zur Zeit des lokalen Sonnenuntergangs (etwa 18 Uhr). Dieses Datum ist Adler 6 [visionäre Hoffnung und globales Denken, Verbindung von Himmel und Erde; d. Übers.] entsprechend dem heiligen Maya-Tzolkin-Kalender ... und besitzt das Potential, die Menschheit vor dem Desaster zu schützen.

Zu diesem Zweck wird es viele Hauptzeremonien in den Maya-Gemeinden geben. Eine offene Einladung ergeht an all jene Menschen, die gemeinsam mit den Maya-Leuten die Waxa'qib B'atz'-Zeremonien am 12. Februar in Guatemala begehen möchten.

Noch einmal: Dies ist eine ernste Botschaft, die nicht bezweckt, uns in Angstreaktionen zu treiben, denn dies würde nur einen negativen Einfluss auf das Maß der Zerstörung und unsere eigenen Lebensumstände ausüben. Dies ist die Möglichkeit für die Menschheit, sich zu erheben und sich entlang der starken Linien zu einen, die uns verbinden, und die Hindernisse zu überwinden, die uns trennen.

Bitte verbreitet diese Botschaft weit.

Diese Botschaft wurde herausgegeben von den Maya-Ältesten in Guatemala und weitergegeben durch: Carlos Barrios, Mayan Ajq'ij, Antigua, Guatemala Adam Rubel, Co-Director, Saq' Be': Organization for Mayan and Indigenous Spiritual Studies

vom 10.01.2005
25 Jahre „Die Grünen“- aus anti-Atom wird eine strahlend, unsichere Energiepolitik!

Ein Grußwort aus dem Widerstand - kein Grund zum Jubeln!

Am 12./13. Januar 1980, also vor 25 Jahren tagten „Die Grünen“ in Karlsruhe. Auf dieser 1. Bundesversammlung mit 1004 Delegierten wurde die Konstituierung der Bundespartei „Die Grünen“ beschlossen. Der Gründungsbeschluss wird mit Zweidrittelmehrheit von 875 gegen 53 bei 12 Enthaltungen gefasst. Zentrales Motiv war u.a. die anti- Atom- Arbeit in die Parlamente zu tragen. Aus der im Parteiprogramm festgehaltenen Erkenntnis, „Die Atomenergie bedroht die Zukunft allen Lebens, da die produzierten radioaktiven Spaltprodukte für Jahrtausende das Leben gefährden “, sollte die Gründung den „Sofortigen Genehmigungs- und Baustop für Atomkraftwerke und Betriebsstop für bereits in Betrieb befindliche Atomanlagen“ forcieren. Das Parteiprogramm warnt: „Der Einsatz der Atomenergie, der die Demokratie und die menschlichen Grundrechte bedroht, verstärkt die vorhandenen Tendenzen zu einem Polizei- und Überwachungsstaat“. Die Grünen wollten sich stark machen für „Eine uneingeschränkte Ausübungsmöglichkeit des Versammlungs- und Demonstrationsrechtes die nicht durch mittelbare oder unmittelbare Eingriffe der Ordnungskräfte behindert wird“, denn „Es scheint, daß der Staat seine Bürger für ein Sicherheitsrisiko hält“.

Für uns Bürgerinitiativen bleibt ernüchtert festzuhalten: „Der ehemalige verlängerte Arm der Anti-Atom-Bewegung lässt in Regierungsverantwortung seit sechs Jahren selbst in gigantischen Polizeieinsätzen gegen Atomkritiker einknüppeln“. Immer noch werden die Kapitalinteressen der Atomindustrie mit Polizeigewalt über das grundrechtlich verbriefte Recht auf körperliche Unversehrtheit und Versammlungsfreiheit gestellt und durchgesetzt.

Wir Bürgerinitiativen sehen die Ergebnisse Grüner Atompolitik allerdings anders: · Noch nie hatten AKW-Betreiber so „sorglose“ Zeiten. · Sie haben Jahrzehnte lang den Verbrauchern Milliarden für die Entsorgung des Atommülls berechnet. Die Verantwortung für den Atommüll wurde im Atomkonsens dem Bund übertragen, die Gelder verblieben bei den EVUs. · Die Endlagersuche hat Rot/Grün trotz Regierungsverantwortung schon viele Jahre erfolgreich verzögert. · Die Grünen kündigten äußerste Offenheit, Transparenz und Bürgerbeteiligung bei der Endlagersuche an, spekulierten aber, über die wachsende Not der Städte und Gemeinden, eine willige Standortgemeinde erkaufen zu können. Eine Harz-IV gesteuerte Endlagersuche lehnen wir aber ab. · Ein seit 2004 fertiger Gesetzentwurf zur Endlagersuche wird als „Geheime Verschlusssache“ behandelt, weil für Rot/Grün bei der NRW-Landtagswahl im Mai 2005 zu große Stimmenverluste befürchtet werden! Wo bleibt da die Offenheit und Transparenz? · Neben dem täglichen hohen Gefährdungspotential der Atomanlagen muss aus der Erkenntnis, den wachsenden Atommüllberg mindestens 1 Million Jahre sicher vor der Biosphäre abschirmen zu müssen, konsequent sofort alle Nuklearanlagen stillgelegt werden. Denn seit drei Generationen weiß weltweit niemand, wie das tödliche Strahlenerbe über diesen unvorstellbaren Zeitraum voller geologischer Umbrüche entsorgt werden kann. · Der Bau und Betrieb von „Zwischenlagern“ zeigt überdeutlich die Hilflosigkeit der Entsorgungspolitik und sichert nur die Interessen der Atomindustrie ab. · Der Ausbau der Urananreicherungsanlage in Gronau ist ein absolutes Tabuthema Grüner Atompolitik! Seid ihr dafür, dagegen oder politikunfähig? · Uranmunition für die Bundeswehr und als Exportschlager ist kein Problem für grüne Friedensaktivisten.

Es ist trostlos, wie minimale Pfründe und Machterhalt Menschen mit ehemals ehrbaren Absichten verändern. Die aktuelle Tagespolitik, die von Skandalen, Nebenverdiensten und politischer Erfolglosigkeit geprägt wird, ist auch von den Grünen zu verantworten. Wir wünschen uns zuverlässige Politiker, die vor der Wahl sagen was geplant ist, die aber auch nach der Wahl zu ihrem Wort stehen! In der anti Atom Bewegung haben wir lieber ehrliche Feinde als meuchelnde Freunde. „Vertretern von Gruppen und Initiativen, die im Bereich Umweltschutz, Lebensschutz und Wahrung demokratischer Rechte arbeiten, wird in Arbeitsgruppen und bei Versammlungen das Rede- und Antragsrecht eingeräumt“, steht im Gründungsprogramm zu lesen. Wir bleiben jederzeit bereit, die unbequemen Wahrheiten vorzutragen, so wir denn eingeladen werden sollten.

Vielleicht gibt es doch noch Politiker in der Grünen Partei, die Politik nicht zur Durchsetzung globalisierter Machtinteressen nutzen, sondern das Leben der Menschen sicher gestalten, deren Vertrauen sie mit ihren Stimmen erhalten haben. Wir wünschen euch für die nächsten Jahre Mut zur Ehrlichkeit, Offenheit und die Fähigkeit zu verlässlicher bürgernaher Politik!
