Washington State Punishes Fuel Efficient Cars with Proposed Tax per mile.

"In a dizzying twist of logic, the Transportation Commission blames the prevalence of fuel-efficient cars as the reason the state now needs a per-mile tax, arguing that “the move to cleaner, smarter vehicles must be accompanied by a change in the way we pay for our roads.” by Adan Salazar, Prison January 31, 2014

    From the UK's Daily Mail, the info about two American bankers who have killed themselves in the past two days. "Two top American bankers commit suicide in London as one jumps 500ft to his death from JP Morgan skyscraper and another hangs himself in luxury home"

    From The Economic Collapse Blog:
    "Bankers committing suicide by jumping from the rooftops of their own banks is something that we think of when we think of the Great Depression.  Well, it just happened in London, England.  A vice president at JPMorgan's European headquarters in London plunged to his death after jumping from the top of the 33rd floor...This comes on the heels of news that a former Deutsche Bank executive was found hanged in his home in London on Sunday.

    "A bank executive who died after jumping 500ft from the top of JP Morgan's European headquarters in London this morning has been named as Gabriel Magee...vice president in the corporate and investment bank technology department having joined in 2004, moving to Britain from the United States in 2007."
    "Mr Broeksmit - who retired last February - was a former senior manager with close ties to co-chief executive Anshu Jain. Metropolitan Police officers said his death was declared as non-suspicious."

    Who knows what's happening?
    It might not be a bad idea to stock up a bit on food.
    Chickens are wonderful pets, and provide food.

    From the posts on the Bizjornal
    We are saddened to learn of yet another death by suicide. Prayers go out to Mr. Dueker's family.

  • BBB Beware of One Ring Phone Scam , Info from the Better Business Bureau

    January 30, 2014
    If you receive a call on your cellphone preceded by just one or two rings, chances are it’s part of the new One Ring phone scam spreading across the U.S. faster than a summer wildfire.
    Here’s how it works: International scammers have programmed computers to blast out millions of calls to cellphone numbers, ring once or twice, then disconnect.  The objective is to make you curious enough to dial that number back.
    The “gotcha” happens when you return the call. You’ll be charged $19.95 for the international call fee itself and $9 per minute thereafter. “Oftentimes consumers say they hear music and then advertising, so they think nothing of staying on the phone. It’s easy to see how quickly charges for these international calls can add up," said Shelley Polansky, vice president of communications for Better Business Bureau Serving Northern Colorado and Wyoming
    Consumers who have been duped by these calls report calls coming from Dominican Republic (809), Jamaica (876), British Virgin Islands (284), Grenada (473) as well as Minnesota and Canadian area codes.
    If you think you’ve are a victim of the One Ring scam, you should immediately alert your phone carrier and keep an eye on your cellphone bill. If you have not already done so, opt out of all third-party billing to your phone.
    Start With Trust. For more consumer tips and information, visit

    Coal Threat to US is Still Smoking January 22, 2014 : A Call to Action from Power Past Coal and Climate Solutions

    English: Coal mining. Illustration from The Graphic 1871. 

    The deadly futility of coal mining resurfaces in movies. Coal Miner's Daughter realistically portrays the deadly effects of coal mining. For the profit of only the few, the result is ruined and poisoned landscapes; ruined and poisoned life. Deadly coal mine explosions destroy families, as shown in the metaphorical blast in The Hunger Games, when the death of Katniss' father is seen blowing a hole into their home. Coal is a lose/lose proposition.
    Editorial by the Washington State Spokane Area blog staff.
    November 29, 2009 12:00 am  • 

     Here's an update from Power Past Coal and Climate Solutions:
    PPC horizontal        CS logo 3
    Together we have generated an unprecedented 330,000+ comments about the coal export terminals proposed in Washington State.  We couldn't have done it without you.
    But that doesn't mean that our work to ensure a fair and full review of the impacts from coal export is done.
    Last year, the WA Department of Ecology determined that they would require a broad evaluation of the impacts of the proposed Cherry Point coal export terminal. The state study will include air and water impacts from coal dust, the greenhouse gas pollution from burning the coal shipped through the terminal, as well as health impacts, marine traffic impacts, and rail traffic impacts beyond our state’s borders.

    The decision to review all of the significant impacts from the proposed terminal at Cherry Point was supported by democracy in action – over 124,000 comments were submitted for Cherry Point alone, detailing concerns on the impacts to our health, our economy, and our climate future.

    However, last week in the State Legislature, a joint work session by the Senate Environment and Economic Development committees criticized the state for doing a comprehensive study of the impacts from the proposed Cherry Point coal export terminal.  We are concerned that we are likely to see bills or budget attacks this session aimed at narrowing the environmental review of coal ports and other harmful projects.
    Email your state Senator today.

    Tell them that smart decisions depend on good information, and environmental laws like the State Environmental Policy Act are essential to our state’s health and future.

    If built, the Cherry Point terminal would be the largest coal export terminal in North America. Its impacts would be felt in communities across the state. And coal is the dirtiest fossil fuel by far. A comprehensive evaluation could not be more appropriate to protect our state. Stand with the thousands of  doctors, nurses, parents, business men and women, faith leaders, elected leaders, and students that have demanded this.

    Urge your Senator to stand up against efforts to weaken SEPA, particularly in the service of the coal industry.

    Pentagon Agency Orders and Stockpiles Potassium Iodide 2012, Doesn't Tell US

    Potassium Iodide would help protect people and kids. Why is Pentagon agency stockpiling this, and Obama keeps saying there is no danger?

    “The U.S. Army Medical Materiel Agency has submitted a MILSTRIP (Military Standard Requisitioning and Issue Procedures) for this item to ensure that critical operational forces are protected in the event of nuclear fallout,” the solicitation added.
    Potassium iodide keeps radioactive iodine from being absorbed by the thyroid gland and therefore it is commonly taken in the event of a severe nuclear emergency, such as the current Fukushima crisis.

    Government and Media Pull Wool Over US, Keep US in the Dark While Deadly Radiation Glows

    Illustration by David Dees

    Safety First; Stop Radiation and All Nuclear Energy, which = Death.
    Second, Kickstart Our Stalled Congress!
    These are public servants We the People hired to work for US, not themselves.

    It's up to US and the world to stop this poisoning of Our Planet Earth, and to keep Our World safe for our kids and the generations to come.

    As radiation levels spike and mutated wildlife washes ashore, government and media promote delusion.

    Turner Radio Network Issues Fukushima Warning Dec. 28, 2013

    "NEWS FLASH - URGENT - December 28, 2013  11:00 PM EST -- (TRN ) -- Persons residing on  the west coast of North America should IMMEDIATELY begin preparing for another possible onslaught of dangerous atmospheric radiation from the Fukushima nuclear disaster site in Japan.  The Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO) says radioactive steam has suddenly begun emanating from previously exploded nuclear reactor building #3 at the Fukuishima disaster site in Japan. TEPCO says they do not know why this is happening and cannot go into the building to see what's happening due to damage and lethal radiation levels in that building. Experts say this could be the beginning of  a "spent fuel pool criticality (meltdown)" involving up to 89 TONS of nuclear fuel burning up into the atmosphere and heading to North America. Steam photo, full details and suggested methods to protect yourself appear below."

    "Those of us with jobs can't simply call-in and tell the boss we can' come to work today because we're afraid of the radiation. So start discussing this situation with your bosses first thing TODAY. See if the company as a whole is willing to develop some type of strategy to deal with taking time off due to a radioactive plume coming onto the west coast of north America from Japan, making things unsafe for a few days.  Start the conversation.  Don't wait until things spiral out of control and people are panicking"

    Nuclear New Years, with Fukushima radiation set to hit US in two days, January 2nd to 4th, 2014.

    During the conference, Suzuki said: “I have seen a paper which says that if in fact the fourth plant goes under in an earthquake and those rods are exposed, it’s bye bye Japan and everybody on the west coast of North America should evacuate.”

    "The west coast of the United States is being absolutely fried by radiation from the Fukushima nuclear disaster, and the mainstream media is not telling us the truth about this."
    Fukushima broken nuclear power plant seems to be in meltdown. This means massive radiation heading to North America. What can we do?
    Contact Our Congress, and kickstart our vacationing public servants and demand that the world steps in and stops the nuclear holocaust in progress. This radiation causes nausea, vomiting, nosebleeds, fatigue, depression, and too many types of cancer to list here. Have you been losing hair at an alarming rate? Another sympton of radiation poisoning.
    Also, read up on ways to protect against radiation.
    None of these sites is meant to substitute for consultations with your health care professional.
    This will help remove radiation from skin and clothing. Use on humans and animals. 
    Yet, start, or continue, with foods and herbs and topicals known to help with radiation poisoning:
    Use these in food whenever possible: tumeric, lemon balm, ground flax, cilantro, parsley, rosemary, garlic, onions.
    Make miso soup. This is what kept many people alive after the nuclear bombings in Nagasaki.
    Avoid dairy, meats (perhaps pork is ok), flour, and especially sugar.
    No, the kids don't like all of this.
    No, they don't want to take it.
    No, they don't want to worry about nuclear radiation. (Who does?)
    Yes, they depend on US as grownups to deal with this situation without panic and to make the world a safe place for them and future generations, a healthy earth.
    And we must remember that hope is great, but it's not a plan!!! 
    Yes, if we live underground like Hobbits, that would help, as nothing other than lead can stop gamma radiation, that penetrates through buildings.
    In the meantime, follow the Department of Health and Human Services' example, though they are only trying to save themselves, not US! And according to estimates, we will get the radiation in a few days, before the end of the first week in January!
    "The Department of Health and Human Services has ordered 14 million doses of potassium iodide, the compound that protects the body from radioactive poisoning in the aftermath of severe nuclear accidents, to be delivered before the beginning of February."
    US Government Orders 14 Million Doses of Potassium Iodide  010114pot
    Image: Potassium Iodide (YouTube).

    "Federal Business Opportunities website, the DHHS asks contractors to supply, “potassium iodide tablet, 65mg, unit dose package of 20s; 700,000 packages (of 20s),” a total of 14 million tablets. The packages must be delivered on or before February 1, 2014."
    Anthony Gucciardi
    January 1, 2014
    Following the revelation that The Department of Health and Human Services has ordered 14 million doses of potassium iodide to be available by no later than the first of February, it is easy to see that the same federal government responsible for silently raising the allowable limits of radiation in the food supply and turning off key radiation counters positioned in the west coast may now silently be preparing for a future Fukushima meltdown.
    Meanwhile, public servants who should be informing US and stopping the radioactive leak are on vacation, doing nothing, saying nothing. Read up on ways to protect yourself and your family. Also, we must worry about kids walking to school in this mess, trying to live their lives in a nuclear nightmare. It's up to US to make this world nuclear-free and safe for all, with peace and prosperity.
    Lots of people believe that government psychos in positions of power are planning to kill US off.
    But even if this isn't the plan, their lack of action, and our silence, ensures a kill off.
    Change this horror story script. There's good things in this world worth saving!!!

    Steam over Fukushima as sign of catastrophe: 89 tons of deadly radioactive fuel could reach US in 2 days

    "Summations from experts conclude that this may "be the beginning of a 'spent fuel pool criticality (meltdown)' involving up to 89 tons of nuclear fuel burning up into the atmosphere and heading to North America.""
    Read more:
    Some suggestions from posts:
    "I keep a 20 tablet IOSAT Pack along with a Soeks Geiger Counter, British S10 NBC mask with uprated Filter, Ortleib 10L shower/water storage bag, Camelbak S10 tube adapter, British Army Mk IV NBC suit with Heavy Duty Rubber Glove and Rubber Overboots, Lifesaver Water Filter Jerry Can and some Nuclear Duct Tap.Kuhn Rikon Auto Safety Lid Lifter"
    "You should be taking Iodine all the time, whether it be Alex Jones nascent (nascent iodine is actually the best iodine to take) or Trophic iodine. If you want a really potent but rare iodine that is hard to obtain you can get Lugols Solution from a Pharmasave. Vegetable based iodine I find is very weak.
    His reference to the study was accurate - a Chinese village that was very deficient in iodine compared to another that had an iodine source measured a 15 point IQ difference.
    Don't wait for some radioactive event before taking it. Iodine should be consumed daily as it's consumption will replace other halides like fluorides and bromides and clean up the body.
    If you really want to protect your whole body not just from radiation but also from poisons in general then take Turmeric powder, as evidenced by Russell Blaylock (retired neurosurgeon and nutritional researcher)."

    "I will never understand the twisted logic of assuming "panic." Personally, I'm more liable to panic if the gov isn't saying anything, and I'm having to piece together info from alternative news, such as DutchSince, who was broadcasting from YouTube everyday about the radiation from Fukushima, as well as here, Natural News, etc. I also felt panic, and mounting anger, when I went to two different pharmacies to get potassium iodide, and the staff sumgly, with a smile, told me they didn't have it, as if they could take it and keep it from people. I was finally able to special order some for me and my family and some friends. THEN, most of my family and friends didn't believe me because the info came from the Internet and obama had said that radiation wouldn't get to us. Watching a nuclear catastrophe go from bad to worse due to ignorance and government criminals is enough to set anyone in panic mode. I was alive during the Cuban Missle crisis, and I'll say this for people then: They weren't in a panic, and they were planning, buy saving canned food, etc. And I must give many people credit, who thought about buying one of the nuclear shelters to put in their basement, but were put off when the salesman said, "How many do you want to survive?" So, it looks like planned murder for the psycho criminals in our government to deliberately lie and deny us the truth and potassium iodide."

    the true test of this article will be if Obama and family (including Valerie Jarrett) cut short their vacation in Hawaii and suddenly decide to take the gang to the "southern hemisphere"
    If true then start loading up your system with B2, B12, and rosemary herb.
    And which radiation is of concern:
    Iodine 131 (this is the least harmful type and ends up in your thyroid gland in your throat, usually treated with potassium iodide tablets)
    Cesium 137 (this is more severe and can invade your internal tissues, and cause cancer, and last a long time – treated with zeolit)
    Strontium 90 (this is ever more severe, and ends up in your bone marrow, causing genetic and DNA damage – treated with zeolites)
    Plutonium 239 (this last for thousands of years and can be very lethal – treat with zeolite)
    "My outdoor readings here in WA tend toward upper teens to low twenties. Right now, I just got readings in the upper forties to low fifties. Sorry guys but I'm going to get some plastic and tape."
    "Will try to keep these bumped for the next few days, anyone else feel free to help!!

    "There are basically two possibilities if another meltdown is in progress:
    1) Pellets of radioactive fuel, ejected when the reactor exploded, have mixed together and "mini" meltdowns are taking place with those small clumps of pellets. This would not be a horrific problem and may be manageable, OR;
    2) Pellets of radioactive fuel, ejected when the reactor exploded, went into the spent fuel pool located above the reactor and have begun melting down so seriously they are boiling off the water in the spent fuel pool.
    Since steam is visible, experts tell TRN that Scenario #2 above is is the most likely scenario and if so, it would be an absolute nightmare -- WORSE than the original Fukushima disaster! The Spent Fuel Pool was situated on the fourth floor above Reactor #3, and if this is the source of the steam, the situation could escalate rapidly out of control."
    Helpful foods:
    Citris and apples
    Spirulina and cholrella
    Seaweeds, and green and black teas
    Foods with carotenes, vitamin C and E, such as carrots, spinich, sweet potatoes.
    Herbs with selenium, ie ginseng.
    Legumes, along with red clover.
    Miso soup and rosemary
    reishi mushrooms
    Cilantro, bentonite clay.
    Actually, almost anything in the vegetable aisle will help.

    UPDATE: Here's a discussion of the present state of Fukushima.
    Here's how to contact Our Congress
    "The Ecologist reported on this unsubstantiated rumor which was then used as a source by ‘Gizmodo. The Ecologist has now changed their original report without any notice or explanation. Here’s the original ending: “The Turner Radio Network is advising people on the West Coast of North America to”prepare for the worst” in case a meltdown of the waste fuel is in fact commencing. No official warnings have been released on either side of the Pacific.”

    "Here’s how it ends now: “According to a Fairewinds Energy Education posting on Facebook, the reactor is currently producing about 1 MW of heat, equivalent to 1,000 1KW electric fires, so enough to produce plenty of steam. This would provide the least worrying explanation for the steam, in that as the radioactivity continues decline so will the heat production and the volume of steam produced. If this explanation is correct, there is no reason expect any catastrophic outcome. However the steam is carrying considerable amounts of radiation into the atmosphere and represents an ongoing radiation hazard.”
