Another strong quake rattles tsunami ravaged Japan ~ link ~ A magnitude-7.4 aftershock rattled Japan on Thursday night, knocking out power across a large swath of the northern part of the country nearly a month after the devastating earthquake and tsunami that flattened the northeastern coast.
Japan's meteorological agency issued a tsunami warning but canceled it about 90 minutes later. Officials said power was out in all of three northern prefectures (states) and in parts of two others.
"In my opinion, the operator company's confusion and lack of action caused a nuclear accident of medium severity to deteriorate into a real catastrophe," said Kovalenko, who was in charge of the information and international relations department of the government commission for dealing with the aftermath of the Chornobyl nuclear disaster.
Plutonium detected again in Fukushima plant soil ~ link ~ TEPCO says the No.3 reactor at the Fukushima plant was powered with uranium-plutonium mixed-oxide fuel.
But the company says that it cannot identify which reactor released the plutonium, because plutonium is produced at other reactors using uranium fuel.
The prince talked to a man who was worried about the emergency at the plant, telling him he hopes the crisis will be resolved soon.
France detects radioactive iodine in rainwater and milk ~ link ~ After the radioactive cloud eminating from Japan's stricken Fukushima nuclear power plant reached Europe last week, French authorities have detected radioactive iodine-131 in rainwater and milk.
Why Public Support for Free Trade Will Collapse ~ link ~ For once, some good news: public support for free trade will almost certainly collapse over the next few years. On this issue, the public is way ahead of the political class in the quality of its thinking, and the average hardware store owner in Nebraska understands the real economics involved better than the average U.S. Senator.
Public opinion certainly continues to turn against free trade: an NBC-Wall Street Journal poll in September 2010 found 53% of Americans believing free trade agreements hurt the U.S., with only 17% believing them beneficial. (The split had been 30% vs. 39% in the dot-com boom year of 1999.) 86% named outsourcing to low-wage nations the key cause of America’s failure to emerge fully from recession and create jobs, significantly outranking choices like the federal deficit. The turn against free trade was sharpest among the affluent and cut across boundaries of class, region, and political affiliation.

A Crack in the Great Wall-mart: Watch out for rising prices from China ~ link ~ Now that our factories are mostly gone, the Chinese raise their prices. We need to END SO-CALLED FREE TRADE NOW. Stirling
In a widely covered interview last Wednesday, the CEO of Wal-Mart, Bill Simon, warned that “U.S. consumers face ‘serious’ inflation in the months ahead for clothing, food and other products.” He noted: "We're seeing cost increases starting to come through at a pretty rapid rate." Given his purview, I accept Simon’s opinion as positively disconcerting, and if inflation is to hit home in the heartland of America, it will certainly begin at Wal-Mart.
While America’s labor force struggles to regain employment and reclaim real wages, the prices of necessary products are preparing to surge, creating the uncomfortable prospect of stagflation, that dour economic phenomenon of rising prices and falling wages last seriously confronted three decades ago. It would be a toxic drink to swallow. Packaged in China for Sam’s Club, and mixed with a little Mexican Wage Gouging Tequila, this “stagarita” would leave a bitter taste in an election year. And what a hangover.

The Link Between War and Big Finance ~ link ~ Americans are recognizing the link between the military-industrial complex and the Wall Street oligarchs—a connection that goes back to the beginning of the modern U.S. empire. Banks have always profited from war because the debt created by banks results in ongoing war profit for big finance; and because wars have been used to open countries to U.S. corporate and banking interests. Secretary of State, William Jennings Bryan wrote: “the large banking interests were deeply interested in the world war because of the wide opportunities for large profits.”
Netanyahu wants Europe to drop Palestinian endorsement ~ link ~ Of course he does, he says no reason by the "sub-humans" the "soulless two-legged animals" should have a country or rights of their own. Stirling

It should be understood that the ruling elite and their predatory engines and operations could never have been so successful, without the help of a large portion of the public and that this large portion of the public would have never allowed so much of what happened to happen, if they had anything approaching a reasonable intelligence. They’ve been dumbed down, duped and deceived, until they believe whatever they are told without even thinking about it. Those who might give it some thought, are provided with other groups who present diametrically opposed stands, so that they can run around and call each other ‘liberals’ or ‘right wingers’ all day.
Religion is a massive propaganda factory; witness the tens of millions of fundamentalist Christians, who mindlessly support the Jewish supremist myth of chosen people status, which leads to, ‘Israel can do no wrong’. This has resulted in the overflowing support that resulted in all of the recent wars in The Middle East, which were engineered by agents of Israel, who are in control of The United States and Crown Colony governments. The policies and behavior of the present day Christian Church are anathema in respect of their founder and the irony touches no one so engaged.
The United States Fights and Pays for Israel's Wars ~ link ~ This is what happens when you have a totally corrupt Congress, and Executive and Judicial branches of government. We need to eliminate all political donations over $100, go to public funded campaigns, ban AIPAC and other foreign nation lobbying, place the most severe restrictions on any form of paid lobbying, institute Congressional term limits, ban the use of computer voting and computer vote counting, ban the use of national vote counting organizations (like the single one used by the mainstream news media), ban the ownership of over 1% of mainstream news media by any one person or company including stock ownership and influence, eliminate the Federal Reserve, eliminate so-called Free Trade and bring back fair import duties to adjust for low foreign wages and costs, bring criminal charges against those who caused the current economic depression, break-up the "too big to fail banks", bring criminal charges against the American and Israeli leaders and intelligence operatives who really did 9/11, eliminate about 80% of the 700 foreign bases for our Armed Forces, end the three wars that we are involved in, stop all funding for Israel unless they withdrawal to pre-1967 borders and make a just peace with their neighbors, just for starters!
