SUDDEN INFANT DEATH AND VACCINES

THIS IS THE MOST CHILLING ACCOUNT OF THE "POSSIBLE" RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN "UNEXPLAINABLE", "UNKNOWN CAUSE", AND "SUDDEN INFANT DEATH"  AND VACCINES THAT I HAVE EVER READ, AND I HAVE READ HUNDREDS!

THIS IS SOMETHING EVERY PARENT OR WOULD-BE PARENT NEEDS TO READ, RE-READ, AND CAREFULLY CONTEMPLATE.

HAVING RETIRED FROM THE FIELD OF MEDICINE, AFTER ALMOST 30 YEARS OF A PROFESSIONAL RELATIONSHIP WITH VACCINE MANUFACTURERS, RESEARCHERS, PEDIATRICIANS, AND HOSPITAL STAFF IN SEVERAL STATES, I CAN DO LITTLE BUT OFFER MY OPINION, ONE I HAVE HELD SINCE FIRST I READ THE STATISTICS, 28 YEARS AGO THAT VACCINES NOT ONLY CAN KILL, BUT DO KILL, AND THAT THAT SEEMS TO BE ONE OF THEIR PRIMARY REASONS FOR BEING IN EXISTENCE.

HAVING FIRST-HAND BRUSHES WITH NEAR-DEATH SITUATIONS IN WHICH MY FRESHLY VACCINATED FOUR CHILDREN PRESENTED WITH ANAPHYLACTIC REACTIONS TO VACCINES, I ASSURE YOU THAT THE AMOUNT OF TIME I HAVE DEVOTED TO RESEARCH MYSELF AMOUNTS TO AS MUCH AS 4 HOURS PER DAY FOR VERY EXTENDED TIME PERIODS, AND TOTALS MORE THAN 6,000 HOURS OF DILIGENT READING AND INQUIRY INTO INTERNATIONAL RESEARCH ON THE SUBJECT.

I CAN ALSO ASSURE YOU THAT THOSE WITHIN THE MEDICAL COMMUNITY ARE PRIVY TO MUCH MORE INFORMATION CONCERNING THE HARM VACCINES CAN CAUSE THAN THE VAST MAJORITY OF PARENTS WILL EVER BE AWARE EXISTS.

WHEN HOSPITAL STAFF REFUSE A VACCINE AND CAUSE THE HOSPITAL TO BE SHUT-DOWN BECAUSE OF THEIR REFUSAL TO COMPLY WITH MANDATORY VACCINATION,, ALL CITIZENS NEED TO TAKE NOTE.
[CLICK HERE FOR A FOX NEWS ARTICLE] 

WHEN A NURSES UNION SUES TO BLOCK MANDATED VACCINES, TAKE NOTE! 
[HERE IS THAT LINK...CLICK]

WHEN A LONG-TIME PEDIATRICIAN, A MAN MOST RESPECTED IN HIS FIELD, SUDDENLY REFUSES TO GIVE VACCINES AND TRIES TO PUBLICLY WARN PARENTS OF THE DANGERS, LISTEN TO HIM!
[ARTICLE AND VIDEO HERE.]

AND ANOTHER: SEE THIS.

THERE ARE MANY LIKE THESE TWO.

THE CDC ITSELF ACKNOWLEDGES THAT VACCINES CAN AND DO POSE SERIOUS HEALTH RISKS AND SIDE EFFECTS.
http://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/vac-gen/side-effects.htm

JUST READING THESE "POSSIBILITIES" MAY GIVE YOU NIGHTMARES.
BUT MANY BELIEVE THE RISKS ARE WORTH IT. 

WHAT ANGERS ME ABOUT THIS REPORT FROM CDC IS THAT IT DOES NOT INCLUDE ALL THE WARNINGS FROM THE MANUFACTURERS OF THESE VACCINES.
THE CDC IS WITHHOLDING PERTINENT INFORMATION FROM PARENTS THAT THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT REQUIRES DRUG/VACCINE MANUFACTURERS TO MAKE PUBLIC!
WHY IS THAT?
WHY NOT TELL THE WHOLE STORY?

MY STANCE IS THAT THOSE WHO DO NOT WANT TO RISK LOSING A CHILD TO THE KNOWN HARMFUL, POSSIBLY FATAL EFFECTS OF VACCINES SHOULD BE LEFT ALONE TO REAR THEIR CHILDREN WITHOUT THEM.

THOSE WHO DO CHOOSE TO VACCINATE THEIR CHILDREN SHOULDN'T NEED TO WORRY ABOUT THEIR KIDS CONTRACTING WHAT THEY HAVE VACCINATED THEM AGAINST, SHOULD THEY?

IT DOESN'T MAKE SENSE TO RAIL AGAINST THE UNVACCINATED IF YOUR CHILD IS SO SAFE WITH VACCINES IN HIS SYSTEM, DOES IT?

IF YOU READ THE NEWS REPORTS OF THE LATEST "OUTBREAK" OF MEASLES, THEN MAYBE, JUST MAYBE YOU SAW THAT IT WAS VACCINATED KIDS SPREADING THIS STRAIN OF MEASLES AS WELL AS UNVACCINATED WHO CONTRACTED IT.

THE CDC ALSO ACKNOWLEDGES THAT VACCINES ARE NOT AT ALL 100% EFFECTIVE.
THEY THEMSELVES HAVE SAID THIS YEAR'S FLU VACCINE IS A FAILURE. 

THE ENTIRE MEDICAL COMMUNITY IS HIGHLY AWARE OF THE MULTITUDE OF RISKS WITH VACCINES.
JUST ONE SMALL WARNING WITH ASSOCIATED TREATMENT PLANS FOR MANAGING KNOWN ADVERSE REACTIONS TO VACCINES CAN BE FOUND IN THIS ENLIGHTENING PDF FROM MASSACHUSETTS: READ HERE.

WHEN DEATH IS A POSSIBLE RISK RELATED TO VACCINES OR INGESTED MEDICATIONS, NO MATTER HOW SMALL ONE MAY PERCEIVE THE THREAT, WE MUST ALLOW ALL HUMAN BEINGS THE RIGHT TO CHOOSE!

PLEASE, GO READ THIS ENTIRE STUDY FROM WHICH I OFFER EXCERPTS BELOW.
FOR ME, IT IS THE MOST POINT-BLANK STUDY OUT THERE AND ASKS THE BEST QUESTIONS I HAVE SEEN A STUDY ASK IN A LONG, LONG TIME.

BECAUSE I LOVE ALL CHILDREN, I HOPE YOU WILL AT LEAST CONSIDER THE EVIDENCE PRESENTED IN THE FOLLOWING STUDY AND IN THOSE WHICH IT CITES IN THE REFERENCE SECTION.

THE EVIDENCE IS MOUNTING, AND I BELIEVE THAT IS WHY THE PHARMACEUTICAL COMPANIES HAVE BEGUN SUCH A BLATANT, ALMOST CRIMINAL ONSLAUGHT AGAINST PARENTS WHO NEVER INTEND TO VACCINATE THEIR CHILDREN, AND AGAINST ADULTS (ESPECIALLY MILITARY PERSONNEL AND THE ELDERLY?) WHO ALSO WANT TO REFUSE VACCINES.

BIG PHARMA AND ITS SUPPORTERS ARE FIGURATIVELY CRUCIFYING PARENTS AND ADULTS WHO SIMPLY DO NOT WANT VACCINES!
ONE MUST ASK WHY!

THE DAY WE TAKE AWAY HUMAN RIGHTS, BEGIN TO TAKE CHARGE OF EVERY HUMAN BEING'S BODY, FORCE ALL PEOPLE TO LINE UP FOR VACCINATIONS, I HOPE THE SUN EXPLODES AND TAKES OUT THE PLANET RATHER THAN SEE SUCH A TRAVESTY, SUCH A CRIME AGAINST HUMANITY!
THAT IS HOW STRONGLY I SUPPORT EVERY PERSON'S RIGHT TO CHOOSE.

ALLOWING ALL THE RIGHT TO CHOOSE VACCINES OR NO VACCINES IS NO DIFFERENT THAN ALLOWING PEOPLE TO CHOOSE WHOM THEY LOVE/MARRY, WHERE THEY LIVE, WHAT RELIGION THEY ADHERE TO, OR THE CHOICE OF HAVING NO RELIGIOUS AFFILIATION AT ALL.

TO MALIGN, BADGER, HUMILIATE OR FORCE CHOICES ON OTHERS IS NO DIFFERENT IF IT APPLIES TO RACISM, GENDER IDENTITY OR VACCINES.

I HAVE PROVIDED THE REFERENCE LIST TO EACH NUMBER IN [BRACKETS].
Despite the United States spending more per capita on health care than any other country,[4] 33 nations have better IMRs. Some countries have IMRs that are less than half the US rate: Singapore, Sweden, and Japan are below 2.80. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), “The relative position of the United States in comparison to countries with the lowest infant mortality rates appears to be worsening.”[5]
Nations differ in their immunization requirements for infants aged less than 1 year. In 2009, five of the 34 nations with the best IMRs required 12 vaccine doses, the least amount, while the United States required 26 vaccine doses, the most of any nation. To explore the correlation between vaccine doses that nations routinely give to their infants and their infant mortality rates, a linear regression analysis was performed.

The US infant mortality rate of 6.22 infant deaths per 1000 live births ranked 34th.

It appears that at a certain stage in nations' movement up the socio-economic scale—after the basic necessities for infant survival (proper nutrition, sanitation, clean water, and access to health care) have been met—a counter-intuitive relationship occurs between the number of vaccines given to infants and infant mortality rates: nations with higher (worse) infant mortality rates give their infants, on average, more vaccine doses. This positive correlation, derived from the data and demonstrated in Figures 1 and ​and 2,2, elicits an important inquiry: are some infant deaths associated with over-vaccination?

Are some deaths that are listed within the 130 infant mortality death categories really deaths that are associated with over-vaccination? Are some vaccine-related deaths hidden within the death tables?

Sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS)
Prior to contemporary vaccination programs, ‘Crib death’ was so infrequent that it was not mentioned in infant mortality statistics. In the United States, national immunization campaigns were initiated in the 1960s when several new vaccines were introduced and actively recommended. For the first time in history, most US infants were required to receive several doses of DPT, polio, measles, mumps, and rubella vaccines.[14] Shortly thereafter, in 1969, medical certifiers presented a new medical term—sudden infant death syndrome.[15,16] In 1973, the National Center for Health Statistics added a new cause-of-death category—for SIDS—to the ICD. SIDS is defined as the sudden and unexpected death of an infant which remains unexplained after a thorough investigation. Although there are no specific symptoms associated with SIDS, an autopsy often reveals congestion and edema of the lungs and inflammatory changes in the respiratory system.[17] By 1980, SIDS had become the leading cause of postneonatal mortality (deaths of infants from 28 days to one year old) in the United States.[18]

In 1992, to address the unacceptable SIDS rate, the American Academy of Pediatrics initiated a ‘Back to Sleep’ campaign, convincing parents to place their infants supine, rather than prone, during sleep. From 1992 to 2001, the postneonatal SIDS rate dropped by an average annual rate of 8.6%. However, other causes of sudden unexpected infant death (SUID) increased. 

For example, the postneonatal mortality rate from ‘suffocation in bed’ (ICD-9 code E913.0) increased during this same period at an average annual rate of 11.2%. 
The postneonatal mortality rate from ‘suffocation-other’ (ICD-9 code E913.1-E913.9), ‘unknown and unspecified causes' (ICD-9 code 799.9), and due to ‘intent unknown’ in the External Causes of Injury section (ICD-9 code E980-E989), all increased during this period as well.[18] (In Australia, Mitchell et al. observed that when the SIDS rate decreased, deaths attributed to asphyxia increased.[19] Overpeck et al. and others, reported similar observations.)[20,21]

A closer inspection of the more recent period from 1999 to 2001 reveals that the US postneonatal SIDS rate continued to decline, but there was no significant change in the total postneonatal mortality rate. 
During this period, the number of deaths attributed to ‘suffocation in bed’ and ‘unknown causes,’ increased significantly. 

According to Malloy and MacDorman, “If death-certifier preference has shifted such that previously classified SIDS deaths are now classified as ‘suffocation,’ the inclusion of these suffocation deaths and unknown or unspecified deaths with SIDS deaths then accounts for about 90 percent of the decline in the SIDS rate observed between 1999 and 2001 and results in a non-significant decline in SIDS”[18] (Figure 3).  

Is there evidence linking SIDS to vaccines?

Although some studies were unable to find correlations between SIDS and vaccines,[22–24] there is some evidence that a subset of infants may be more susceptible to SIDS shortly after being vaccinated. 
For example, Torch found that two-thirds of babies who had died from SIDS had been vaccinated against DPT (diphtheria–pertussis–tetanus toxoid) prior to death. 
Of these, 6.5% died within 12 hours of vaccination; 13% within 24 hours; 26% within 3 days; and 37%, 61%, and 70% within 1, 2, and 3 weeks, respectively. 
Torch also found that unvaccinated babies who died of SIDS did so most often in the fall or winter while vaccinated babies died most often at 2 and 4 months—the same ages when initial doses of DPT were given to infants. 
He concluded that DPT “may be a generally unrecognized major cause of sudden infant and early childhood death, and that the risks of immunization may outweigh its potential benefits. 

A need for re-evaluation and possible modification of current vaccination procedures is indicated by this study.”[25]
 Walker et al. found “the SIDS mortality rate in the period zero to three days following DPT to be 7.3 times that in the period beginning 30 days after immunization.”[26]
 Fine and Chen reported that babies died at a rate nearly eight times greater than normal within 3 days after getting a DPT vaccination.[27]

Ottaviani et al. documented the case of a 3-month-old infant who died suddenly and unexpectedly shortly after being given six vaccines in a single shot: 
“Examination of the brainstem on serial sections revealed bilateral hypoplasia of the arcuate nucleus. The cardiac conduction system presented persistent fetal dispersion and resorptive degeneration. This case offers a unique insight into the possible role of hexavalent vaccine in triggering a lethal outcome in a vulnerable baby.” Without a full necropsy study in the case of sudden, unexpected infant death, at least some cases linked to vaccination are likely to go undetected.[28]

Vaccine composition
[ALL PARENTS MUST ASK, RESEARCH!]

This analysis calculated the total number of vaccine doses received by children but did not differentiate between the substances, or quantities of those substances, in each dose. Common vaccine substances include antigens (attenuated viruses, bacteria, toxoids), preservatives (thimerosal, benzethonium chloride, 2-phenoxyethanol, phenol), adjuvants (aluminum salts), additives (ammonium sulfate, glycerin, sodium borate, polysorbate 80, hydrochloric acid, sodium hydroxide, potassium chloride), stabilizers (fetal bovine serum, monosodium glutamate, human serum albumin, porcine gelatin), antibiotics (neomycin, streptomycin, polymyxin B), and inactivating chemicals (formalin, glutaraldehyde, polyoxyethylene). 
For the purposes of this study, all vaccine doses were equally weighted.

AMERICAN TEENS JOIN ISIS

MY PREVIOUS BLOG EXPLORED THE VERY REAL POSSIBILITY THAT AMERICA MAY SOON SEE SUICIDE BOMBERS IN OUR MALLS, IN OUR OWN TOWNS, BUT I BRIEFLY TOUCHED ON THE APPEAL, THE "GLAMOR" OF THESE TERRORIST ORGANIZATIONS TO OUR OWN SUSCEPTIBLE CHILDREN.

WE REALLY MUST EXPLORE THIS AND FIND WAYS TO SAFEGUARD OUR CHILDREN SO THEY DON'T BECOME LIKE THE KNOWN 23 SWEDISH YOUNG PEOPLE OF OVER 150 FROM THAT NATION WHO RAN OFF TO JOIN ISIS AND ARE NOW CASUALTIES OF THAT ERROR OF JUDGMENT.
THEY JOINED ISIS AND PERISHED.


AMERICAN TEENS HEAD FOR SYRIA
Three Denver teenage girls , aged 16, 17, and 18recently skipped school and flew to Germany to join ISIS before being sent home. 

A 19-year-old American nurse aid who planned to travel to the Turkish border to marry an ISIS member she met on the Internet was stopped at  Denver International Airport.

A suburban Chicago teen was arrested before boarding a flight to Turkey to join ISIS fighters in Iraq and Syria.

Why are American teenagers drawn to the Islamic terror group?
ISIS excels at recruiting American teens.
 Here are four reasons why:

1- Appeal to sense of identity and place - 
According to news and FBI reports, ISIS (or IS) typically preys on Western youth who are disillusioned and have no sense of purpose or belonging. Much like criminal gangs, IS offers disaffected teens a chance to join a group that gives them purpose and meaning.

IS offers structure and a defined place in the Caliphite society they have created. Such a surrounding can be appealing for someone who feels he is adrift in the world.

2. Appeal to a sense of religious obligation – 
IS appeals to a sense of religious duty and a youthful desire to express religious sentiments that make people feel connected to each other.

Many of these young people are new converts to Islam. Fighting a Jihad with IS serves as a proving ground for their new beliefs and, if they survive, a confirmation of the new “higher power” at their extremist fingertips.

Furthermore, IS’s publicized successes and their declared aspirations to dominate the world and impose Sharia law also appeals to these young religious zealots.

3- Use of sophisticated internet propaganda.
 According to Matthew Olsen, director of the National Counterterrorism Center, ISIS now operates the most sophisticate propaganda machine of any terrorist organization.
"It turns out timely, high-quality media, and it uses social media to secure a widespread following."

4- ISIS' jihadi brides recruitment appeals to young women.  
TEENS AS YOUNG AS 13 CAN LOOK FORWARD TO BEING BRIDES.
Hundreds of young Western women have been reportedly wooed by IS fighters to become “jihadi brides” , but what makes them go?
Their "sisters", for one, those whom ISIS uses in propaganda videos that tell stories of romance, sisterhood among the young brides, offer stability, even luxury, and reverence.
The idealism of the "revered wife" is sold hard to naive young females who have never seen a Muslim family home.
But, they're eager to be loved, needed, "revered".
The young virile men pictured in ISIS videos who are supposedly "looking for a bride" send naive girls' hearts pounding.

The departures to join ISIS are less the whims of adolescents and more the conclusions of months of work by organized radical recruitment networks that specifically target young people in search of an identity and a sense of belonging, of being important.

WHAT SHOULD ALL THIS TELL US?
THAT MORE AND MORE OF AMERICA'S YOUTH FEEL AS IF THEY DON'T BELONG, AREN'T APPRECIATED, HAVE NO SENSE OF PURPOSE WITHIN THEIR OWN FAMILIES, OR WITHIN SOCIETY IN GENERAL?

IS IT JUST TOO HARD IN AMERICA FOR YOUNG PEOPLE TO COMPETE WITH OTHERS TO BE "POPULAR", TO BE A PART OF THE "RIGHT CLIQUE"?

IF SO, THEN ISN'T IT THAT, AS CHRIS DICKEY SAID, "Their drive is a deadly combination of youthful fantasies and aspirations to “be someone” ?

OR ARE THEY SIMPLY DUPED BY LACK OF FACTUAL INFORMATION, LACK OF MATURITY, A DESIRE FOR "ADVENTURE"?
IS IT LIKE SOME HOLLYWOOD MOVIE, SOME VIDEO GAME, SOME ROMANTIC NOTION OF HELPING THE "UNDERDOG"?

ISIS PORTRAYS ITSELF QUITE WELL AS A DEDICATED RELIGIOUS GROUP OUT TO "FIX THE WORLD", SOMEONE WHO WILL RESTORE ORDER TO WHAT THE KIDS MAY SEE AS CHAOS, REPLACE SHALLOWNESS WITH A DEEP SENSE OF TRUE PURPOSE.
WHAT A "NOBLE CAUSE" TO BECOME PART OF, RIGHT?
"TOGETHER, WE CAN RULE THE WORLD"?

HOW CAN WE COMBAT THAT?
HOW CAN WE MONITOR AND HELP OUR CHILDREN SO THAT THEY DON'T FALL VICTIM?

We here in America, our media, our table-talk, have painted most current heads of state in Middle Eastern nations as monsters.
We have vilified Assad of Syria, after we did the same of Hussein of Iraq, Gaddafi of Libya, Mubarak of Egypt, Ahmadinejad of Iran, and led the efforts that have killed half of those "monsters".
Our children see this and may then see nothing wrong with being a part to ridding the world of such terrible people.
ISIS promises to set it all right, to be a ruling force that will improve the world.

TOO LATE WE MAY HAVE REALIZED WE HAVE NO RIGHT TO TELL THE REST OF THE WORLD WHO SHOULD RULE THEM WHEN OUR OWN NATION IS AS DIVIDED AND PITTED AGAINST ONE ANOTHER AS IT IS.
WE REALLY HAVE NO RIGHT TO BE IN THE MIDDLE EAST.
NO ONE HAS DIED AFTER APPOINTING US "KING OF THE WORLD".

THERE IS PLENTY FOR YOUNG PEOPLE TO DO TO MAKE AMERICA A BETTER PLACE TO LIVE, SO LET'S POINT THEM IN THAT DIRECTION.

OF COURSE THEY WANT A SENSE OF PURPOSE, AND WE CAN GIVE THEM THAT RIGHT HERE!
THERE ARE PLENTY OF ORGANIZATIONS STRUGGLING TO HELP OTHERS IN AMERICA.
INTRODUCE YOUR CHILDREN TO THOSE OPPORTUNITIES.
HELP THEM GET INVOLVED.
ENCOURAGE THEM TO BECOME LEADERS HERE, ON HOME SOIL.
THEY CAN STILL HELP SEND FOOD, MEDICINE, SUPPLIES TO THE PEOPLE IN OTHER NATIONS WITH WHICH THEY MAY "IDENTIFY".
THEY DON'T HAVE TO TRAVEL THOUSANDS OF MILES TO "SERVE HUMANITY".

IF IT'S A RELIGIOUS CALLING THEY FEEL, LET THEM FIND A CHURCH, SYNAGOGUE, MOSQUE TO ATTEND.
LET THEM GET MORE DEEPLY INVOLVED WITH THEIR PEERS IN THOSE SETTINGS, BUT CAREFUL OF FANATICAL IDEOLOGIES IN ANY OF THOSE.
FAMILIARIZE YOURSELVES WITH WHAT IS BEING PREACHED, TAUGHT.
HOW MUCH DO YOU REALLY KNOW ABOUT THIS MESS IN THE MIDDLE EAST, ABOUT ISIS AND THE OTHER "RADICAL ISLAMIST" ORGANIZATIONS?
TIME TO LEARN!

THERE IS A FAIR ARTICLE ON "
Why and how Westerners go to fight in Syria and Iraq"
HERE:


DO YOU REALLY HAVE A DEEP UNERSTANDING OF THE TEACHINGS OF THE UNTRANSLATED QUR'AN?
YOU MUST BE AWARE THAT THERE DOES NOT EXIST AN "ACCEPTABLE" TRANSLATION OF THAT BOOK BY ANY ISLAMIC NATION ON THIS PLANET...NOT ONE.
TO TRANSLATE IT INTO ANY "HERETICAL" LANGUAGE IS AN AFFRONT, IS LOATHED.
THE QUR'AN IS THE TRUE QUR'AN ONLY IN THE ORIGINAL LANGUAGE!
ANY IMAM WILL TELL YOU THAT ENGLISH TRANSLATIONS MAY HAVE BEEN "APPROVED" IN ORDER TO WIN CONVERTS, BUT NONE ARE ACCEPTABLE!
ALL CONVERTS ARE SCHOOLED IN THE ORIGINAL LANGUAGE, ARE EXPECTED TO LEARN AND USE ARABIC.
[SEE: http://www.meforum.org/717/assessing-english-translations-of-the-quran ]

I CAN SIT HERE AND TELL YOU ALL DAY THAT, HAVING LIVED IN THE MIDDLE EAST, I KNOW THAT "RADICAL ISLAM" IS SIMPLY ISLAM, PERIOD, THE END.
YOU WILL HAVE TO GO FIND THAT OUT FOR YOURSELVES.

WHAT WE KNOW OF HERE AS "AMERICAN MUSLIMS", THE TRADITIONAL, DEEPLY DEDICATED  ISLAMIC NATIONS OVERSEAS CALL "HERETICS" OR "APOSTATES", AND, SURPRISING AS IT MAY BE, AMERICAN MUSLIMS ARE MARKED BY ISIS AS THEIR NUMBER ONE TARGET ONCE THEY CAN GET OVER HERE AND DEAL WITH ALL OF US IN THE "NATION OF SATAN".

THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN "AMERICANIZED ISLAM" AND PURE ISLAM AS LIVED IN NATIONS LIKE IRAN, IS AS DIFFERENT AS MIDNIGHT ON A STORMY NIGHT AND SUNSHINE AT NOON ON A CLOUDLESS DAY.
THERE IS NO COMPARISON, I ASSURE YOU.  


WHO IS "APOSTATE" TO ISIS?
"Denying the holiness of the Koran or the prophecies of Muhammad is straightforward apostasy. But Zarqawi and the state he spawned take the position that many other acts can remove a Muslim from Islam. These include, in certain cases, selling alcohol or drugs, wearing Western clothes or shaving one’s beard, voting in an election—even for a Muslim candidate—and being lax about calling other people apostates. Being a Shiite, as most Iraqi Arabs are, meets the standard as well, because the Islamic State regards Shiism as innovation, and to innovate on the Koran is to deny its initial perfection. (The Islamic State claims that common Shiite practices, such as worship at the graves of imams and public self-flagellation, have no basis in the Koran or in the example of the Prophet.) That means roughly 200 million Shia are marked for death.
So too are the heads of state of every Muslim country, who have elevated man-made law above Sharia by running for office or enforcing laws not made by God."  


But Muslims who call the Islamic State un-Islamic are typically, as the Princeton scholar Bernard Haykel, the leading expert on the group’s theology, told me, “embarrassed and politically correct, with a cotton-candy view of their own religion” that neglects “what their religion has historically and legally required.” Many denials of the Islamic State’s religious nature, he said, are rooted in an “interfaith-Christian-nonsense tradition.”


SOME FIGURES ON WHAT PERCENTAGE BY NATION THE MUSLIM PEOPLE THERE SEE "RADICAL ISLAM" AS THE REAL ISLAM CAN BE FOUND HERE:
http://www.breitbart.com/national-security/2014/09/04/myth-tiny-radical-minority/

STATEMENTS BY ISIS ITSELF ARE ALSO VERY REVEALING.
THEY INTEND TO PUNISH SEVERELY ALL WHO HAVE NOT ADHERED TO THE TEACHINGS OF THEIR PROPHET!
THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A "MODERATE MUSLIM" IN ISLAMIC STATES ABROAD!

HAVE WE FORGOTTEN THE NEWS REPORTS AND LIVE VIDEOS FROM THOSE DEVOUT MUSLIM NATIONS AFTER OUR 9/11 TRAGEDY?
THERE WAS DANCING IN THE STREETS, CELEBRATIONS, PEOPLE SENDING ONE ANOTHER GIFTS IN SAUDI ARABIA, GAZA, EGYPT, IRAN, IRAQ, KUWAIT, PAKISTAN, AFGHANISTAN, JORDAN....
DID YOU FORGET THAT?  


THEY DID THE SAME THING AFTER THE BOSTON MARATHON BOMBING.  


"Historian John Philip Jenkins writes, “As late as the eleventh century, Asia was still home to at least a third of the world’s Christians and perhaps a tenth of all Christians lived in Africa.  What happened to this thriving, intellectually vibrant Christianity?  It was virtually wiped out by violent Islamic persecution, especially during the fourteenth century, due to ethnic and religious cleansing.”  Islam became known as “the religion of the sword,” and for good reason."

AMERICA BECAME "THE GREAT SATAN" AROUND 1979, AND JIHAD WAS DECLARED AGAINST US TIME AFTER TIME.

NEVER FORGET THIS.

WHAT ELSE CAN WE DO TO SAFEGUARD AMERICA'S YOUNG PEOPLE FROM ISIS?  


GENTLE STEERING, DEDICATED PARENTAL INVOLVEMENT BEATS RAIL-ROADING AND MICRO-MANAGING YOUR CHILDREN.

TAKE TIME TO SIT DOWN WITH THEM AND JUST TALK ABOUT THINGS.
LET THEM KNOW THEY'RE LOVED, NEEDED, AND THAT YOU RESPECT THEIR OPINIONS, EVEN IF YOU DON'T ALWAYS AGREE WITH THEM.

IF YOUR CHILD IS ONE OF THOSE "LONERS", SEEMS TO LACK A HEALTHY SOCIAL LIFE, TRY TO FIND OUT WHY.   

MAYBE YOU JUST HAVE A CONTEMPLATIVE BUT HAPPY INTROVERT ON YOUR HANDS, IN WHICH CASE, NO PROBLEM.
BUT IF YOU HAVE AN UNHAPPY CHILD, DO TRY TO FIND OUT WHY AND HOW YOU CAN BEST HELP.

SOMETIMES ALL A CHILD NEEDS TO "FIT IN" IS AN EASY FIX.
SOMETIMES ALL A CHILD CAN DO JUST WON'T BE ENOUGH, FOR WHATEVER REASON.
WE NEED TO KNOW WHICH OF THESE IS THE CASE AND HELP THEM DEAL WITH IT.
CHILDREN CAN TREAT OTHER CHILDREN QUITE HORRIBLY.
IF YOU RECALL, GROWING UP WAS NOT THE EASIEST THING.
UNRESOLVED ISSUES CAN MAKE IT SEEM DOWNRIGHT IMPOSSIBLE.

BE HONEST.
DON'T SUGAR-COAT THINGS.
DON'T TREAT YOUR CHILDREN LIKE FRAGILE GLASS.
THEY CAN HANDLE HONESTY MUCH BETTER THAN THE MILDEST FORMS OF DECEIT.

IN OUR HURRY-UP WORLD WE NEED TO FIND TIME, QUALITY TIME, BE ABLE TO GIVE AS MUCH UNDIVIDED ATTENTION AS WE CAN TO REARING OUR CHILDREN, TO PROVIDING THEM A STABLE, LOVING ENVIRONMENT THEY CAN ALWAYS TRUST IS REAL.

IF YOU WERE A JOCK, AN OVER-ACHIEVER, THE CENTER OF ATTENTION, A RAVING BEAUTY, A "SUPER-STAR", THAT DOES NOT MEAN YOU ARE OBLIGATED TO MAKE YOUR CHILD INTO THE SAME TYPE OF BEING.
LET YOUR KIDS BE THEMSELVES, WHOMEVER THEY ARE.
THEY'LL GO THROUGH STAGES, JUST LIKE WE DID, AND MAY JUST WIND UP A "CHIP OFF THE OLD BLOCK", BUT DON'T MAKE THAT A PREREQUISITE TO YOUR LOVING THEM AND BEING PROUD OF THEM AS INDIVIDUALS.

YOU CAN PUSH A CHILD, BUT YOU CAN ALSO PUSH A CHILD SO FAR AWAY THAT YOU MAY NEVER GET HIM/HER BACK.

THAT IS NOT TO SAY YOU HAVE TO REAR A "SPOILED BRAT".
THE PARENT-CHILD RELATIONSHIP IS ONE IN WHICH PARENTS ARE "FRIENDLY DICTATORS". 
THERE WILL BE HOUSE RULES, "LAWS OF THE REALM".
BUT THERE IS NO NEED FOR A TASKMASTER, AN UNYIELDING TYRANT WHEN IT COMES TO REARING A HEALTHY CHILD.

MAKE IT YOUR BUSINESS TO KNOW WHERE AND WITH WHOM YOUR CHILD SPENDS TIME.
YOU CAN DO THAT WISELY, SUBTLY, WITHOUT APPEARING MEDDLESOME.
KEEP A VIGILANT EYE ON SOCIAL MEDIA CONTACTS, ON HOW MUCH TIME YOUR KIDS SPEND THERE.ISIS IS EVERYWHERE ONLINE!

CHILDREN ARE SUSCEPTIBLE TO PEER PRESSURE, TO GOING ALONG WITH THE CROWD, TO PULLING THE WOOL OVER PARENTS' EYES.
YOU DID THE SAME, MOST LIKELY.
REMEMBER THAT.
REMEMBER WHAT YOU DID AND HOW YOU DID IT!

WATCH FOR WARNING SIGNS.
STAY INFORMED.

RADICAL ISLAM 'S CHILD MARTYRS




THINK OF A CHILD YOU KNOW.

A CHILD.
A CHILD OF 7, 8, 10 YEARS OLD.

CAN YOU SEE THAT CHILD AS A MASS MURDERER?
CAN YOU SEE THAT CHILD WITH AN EXPLOSIVE VEST ON, WALKING INTO A MALL AND DETONATING THE EXPLOSIVES JUST TO KILL THE "ENEMY"....YOU?

YOU, I, ALL OF AMERICA, ALL "HERETICS", ARE TARGETS OF WHAT WE CALL "RADICAL ISLAM", WHICH OFFERS UP ITS CHILDREN AS MARTYRS FOR ITS CAUSE...FOR JIHAD.

AL SHABAB, ONE SUCH GROUP, HAS RECENTLY SAID IT WILL BEGIN SUICIDE BOMBING ATTACKS ON AMERICA.
THE MALL OF AMERICA IN MINNESOTA WAS SPECIFICALLY NAMED AS A PRIMARY TARGET.

THE NUMBER OF VERY YOUNG CHILDREN SENT TO KILL OTHERS BY BLOWING THEMSELVES UP HAS RISEN ALMOST 30% IN JUST THE PAST TWO YEARS!

ALL THE "RADICAL ISLAMIC GROUPS" WE KNOW OF TODAY, INCLUDING THE TALIBAN ARE SENDING CHILDREN TO DO THEIR DIRTY WORK, AND THEY ARE TELLING THEM THAT THEY WON'T BE KILLED BY THE BOMBS.

A YOUNG CHILD IS UNLIKELY TO ARGUE WITH OR DOUBT THOSE ADULTS WHOM THEY LIVE WITH, TRUST, DEPEND ON.

WHAT WOULD YOU DO, AMERICANS, IF YOU SAW A CHILD OF 7 OR 8 YEARS OLD STANDING BEFORE YOU, THUMBS ON BUTTONS TO BLOW HIMSELF AND YOU AND OTHERS INTO OBLIVION?

WHAT WILL OUR POLICE DO WHEN FACED WITH THIS?
HOW CAN WE KNOW WHO THE ENEMY IS ANYMORE?

THIS IS THE TYPE OF THING OUR MILITARY FACED IN VIETNAM, WHEN DEATH CAME AT THEM IN THE FORM OF CHILDREN, WOMEN, THE ELDERLY.

THIS IS WHAT OUR MILITARY IN THE MIDDLE EAST FACE EACH DAY.

NOW, IT LOOKS LIKE IT WILL BE OUR TURN.
WILL WE, WILL YOU, KILL CHILDREN TO SAVE AMERICAN CITIZENS' LIVES?

WE'LL HAVE TO, WON'T WE?

HOW DID WE COME TO THIS?
IT'S CALLED JIHAD...JIHAD WAS CALLED FOR AGAINST ALL CHRISTIANS IN THE YEAR 630 A.D.
AS EXPLAINED HISTORICALLY:
"
All these Christian nations were invaded by the Muslims not because they had any grievance against them, not because they had attacked the Muslims, but because it was in the world view of the Muslims, if the Dawat-ul-Islam (Invitation to embrace Islam) did not meet with acceptance, if war was the only way to force SUBMISSION of non-Muslims, then it was their duty to attack non-Muslims and convert them by force to Islam.
The Dawat-ul-Islam was sent to the Christian Byzantine Emperor Heraclius (Heraclios) by Mohammed-ibn-Abdallah himself.
This invitation was in fact an ultimatum to either embrace Islam, or surrender to the Muslim armies and pay protection money to the Muslims through a penal tax called Jaziya .
SUBMIT or prepare for war.
Since Heraclius rejected all these demands, the Muslims launched their first major attack on a Christian kingdom in the year 634 ."

"THE NATION OF SATAN" (AS AMERICA IS KNOWN TO ISLAM) WAS DOUBLY TARGETED WHEN WE FIRST ALLIED WITH ISRAEL.

WHEN WE INVADED IRAQ THE FIRST TIME, WHEN WE FOUGHT IRAN BEFORE THAT, USING SADDAM HUSSEIN AS OUR WEAPON, WE BECAME EVEN MORE TARGETED.
ONLY ISRAEL IS MORE HATED THAN AMERICA IS BY THIS "RADICAL ISLAM".

EVERY TRUE MUSLIM, EVERY MUSLIM WHO ADHERES TO THE QUR'AN ,OF THE ALMOST 2 BILLION MUSLIMS AROUND THE WORLD, MUST ANSWER THE CALL TO JIHAD...THEY SIMPLY MUST!
AND EVERY MUSLIM IS GUARANTEED PARADISE IF HE/SHE DIES FOR JIHAD.

SO, YES, THEY HAVE COME TO THIS PLACE IN TIME WHEN THEY ARE WILLING TO SACRIFICE THEIR CHILDREN, AND THE CHILDREN HAVE BEEN REARED TO DESIRE MARTYRDOM.

BUT, HERE'S THE TWIST, AMERICA....ISLAM HAS BECOME VERY POPULAR HERE IN SOME CIRCLES, AND SOME OF OUR OWN HIGH SCHOOL AND COLLEGE STUDENTS ARE STARTING TO SEE ISIS AND ITS KIND AS "COOL", AS "BAD-ASS", AS SOMETHING TO GET INVOLVED WITH, TO SUPPORT, TO JOIN.
WHAT IF IT ISN'T AN ARABIC CHILD ANSWERING THE CALL TO JIHAD?

CNN JUST DID AN ARTICLE ENTITLED "What is ISIS' appeal for young people?"


It runs a powerful propaganda machine on social media.

"There's no question what we're combating with ISIL's propaganda machine is something we have not seen before," said U.S. State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki.

It promises "the good life".
Analysts say that ISIS can appeal to young people's religious idealism and to a desire to escape the frustrations of life in the West.

"ISIS provides a utopian political project, the so-called caliphate, the centralized Islamic rule." 
"ISIS provides these deluded young men and women with an adventurous trip."


The wave of young Western people flocking to fight with this notorious organization begs the question – why are they leaving behind comfortable lives of privilege to join one of the most violent terror organizations in history?

Christopher Dickey, a foreign editor of The Daily Beast, recently said on CNN that many recruits are young men in their teens and 20s. What draws them into the fight is a combination that he calls “TNT,” which stands for Testosterone, Narrative and Theater.

WE MUST BE VIGILANT OF SIGNS IN OUR AMERICAN CHILDREN THAT ISIS/ISIL PROPAGANDA HAS STARTED TO OWK ON THEM!

INNOCENCE BETRAYED THINK OF THE BLIND AND LOVING TRUST CHILDREN HAVE IN THE ADULTS WHO CARE FOR THEM, TRUSTING THEIR PARENTS MOST OF ALL IN ALL THE WORLD.

NOW, IMAGINE THAT CHILD WITH A SUICIDE VEST FULL OF EXPLOSIVES, DETONATING THE DEVICE HIS PARENTS, OR HIS 'TEACHER', OR SOME OTHER ADULT TOLD HIM WOULD MAKE HIM A MARTYR FOR HIS RELIGION, THAT HE SHOULD SACRIFICE HIMSELF AT THE TENDER AGE OF 7, OR EVEN 13.
IMAGINE THAT CHILD BELIEVING WHAT HE'S TOLD, DUTIFULLY DONNING THAT EXPLOSIVE VEST, LEAVING HOME FOR THE LAST TIME, TRUSTING THAT WHAT HE HAS BEEN TOLD IS TRUE.

IMAGINE THAT CHERUBIC FACE, THAT SMALL BODY, THOSE BEAUTIFUL SMILING EYES ALL BEING BLOWN INTO A MILLION SMALL PIECES AND THAT SWEET YOUNG LIFE EXTINGUISHED FOREVER...

WHAT IF IT WERE YOUR CHILD?
WOULD YOU SEND YOUR CHILD ON SUCH A MISSION?

A GROWING NUMBER, HUNDREDS OF YOUNG CHILDREN PER YEAR, ARE INDEED BEING SENT OFF TO DIE...FOR ISLAM....FOR JIHAD.

WHAT A SENSELESS WASTE!
WHAT A CRIME AGAINST CHILDHOOD!

IT HAPPENED AGAIN YESTERDAY, AND THE MARTYR WAS A LITTLE GIRL OF AGE 7 OR 8.

http://dailytimes.com.ng/article/girl-bomber-eight-kills-five-yobe
FEB. 23, 2015
Another young girl, about eight years by some accounts, blew herself up on Sunday in Potiskum, Yobe State. Five other persons were killed when the girl, with explosives strapped to her body, detonated the devices at a security checkpoint outside a market. Dozens of others were also wounded, witnesses said.

The use of female suicide bombers, sometimes young girls, has been a common tactic of Boko Haram since last year, as have revenge attacks on civilians when the group is under pressure.

[NOTE:  TWO MORE YOUNG GIRLS JUST BECAME SUICIDE BOMBERS NEAR THIS SAME MARKET.]

IT'S BEEN GOING ON FOR YEARS!

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2015/01/10/girl-suicide-bombing-maiduguri_n_6448518.html

MAIDUGURI, Nigeria, Jan 10, 2015 (Reuters) - A bomb worn by a girl aged about 10 exploded in a busy market place in the northeastern city of Maiduguri on Saturday, killing at least 16 people and injuring more than 20, security sources said.

"The explosive devices were wrapped around her body and the girl looked no more than 10 years old," a police source said.

A Nigerian security source said the bomb went off at 12:15 p.m. (1115 GMT). The bodies of at least 16 bomb victims were counted in one hospital by mid-afternoon.

On Saturday afternoon, two suicide bombers, arrested by police in a vehicle, blew themselves up when they were taken to the main police station in the town of Potiskum in Yobe state, residents who witnessed the scene said.

SOME PARENTS INTERVENE, SAVE THEIR CHILDREN
http://www.irinnews.org/report/76701/pakistan-child-suicide-bombers-victims-of-the-most-brutal-exploitation

LAHORE, 12 February 2008
Fearing their son was being brainwashed into becoming a suicide bomber, the family moved to Lahore to ensure the teenager escaped the influence of his fanatical Islamic teachers and peers.

Over the past year, Pakistan has been struck by a wave of attacks, many involving suicide bombings. Fifty-six suicide bombings took place in 2007 alone, killing at least 636 people, including 419 members of Pakistan’s security forces.

A further four bombings in 2008 have already killed over 70 people - the most recent at a political rally on 11 February when a teenage suicide bomber blew himself up in Pakistan’s North Waziristan tribal area near the Afghan border.

The toll of such attacks continues to rise, with suicide bombings having claimed over 2,000 victims in Pakistan over the past decade. Many others have been gravely injured - some disabled for life.

Many of the bombers who blew themselves up were children, while teenagers who have been arrested provide chilling accounts of how they had been imbued into carrying out similar attacks.

In December 2007, an attack in Kohat that killed 11 army cadets was carried out by a bomber aged 16 or 17 who detonated explosives strapped to his body as he approached his targets.

In January, a boy of around the same age blew himself up at a mosque in Peshawar in a sectarian attack on worshippers gathered there.

But it is the manner in which these boys are indoctrinated that is most revealing. 

Just a few weeks earlier, Aitezaz Shah, 15, detained in the northern town of Dera Ismail Khan, told investigators how he had been recruited by extremists after dropping out of school in Karachi in May last year.

He said he had been assigned to act as a “back-up” bomber in the assassination of Benazir Bhutto, the chairperson of Pakistan’s populist People’s Party, who was killed in a suicide bombing on 27 December.

Another 15-year-old Pakistani suicide bomber, Hainullah, trained in Waziristan, said he was offered a “way out of a life of boredom” at a seminary in the area by a preacher who offered him visions of paradise, where rivers of milk and honey flowed, in exchange for giving up his life by becoming a suicide bomber.

A few months later, in a case that made headlines, a 14-year-old would-be bomber, Rafiqullah, was pardoned by Afghan President Hamid Karzai and sent back to Pakistan after being arrested wearing a “suicide vest” packed with explosives.

“It is a sad fact that a Muslim child was sent to a religious school to learn about Islam but was misled by the enemies of Afghanistan,” Karzai said at the time.

Afghan boy suicide bombers tell how they are brainwashed into believing they will survive.
Child suicide bombers say they were told by their handlers that the "bombs would not kill us, only the Americans would die".

"ONLY AMERICANS"?
"ONLY"?
DOES THE HATRED FOR AMERICANS RUN THAT DEEP?
THAT CURDLES MY BLOOD.

BRAINWASHED CHILDREN
http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/asia/afghanistan/9014282/Afghan-boy-suicide-bombers-tell-how-they-are-brainwashed-into-believing-they-will-survive.html
13 Jan 2012, KANDAHAR
The mission was as simple as touching two wires together, the little boy was promised. The resulting blast would obliterate the American infidels – but God would spare him from the flame and shrapnel.
Abdul Samat would be unharmed and free to run back to the men who had fitted his bomb vest.
Blindfolded and rigged with his explosive payload, the boy, who was about 13, was driven to his target in the Afghan city of Kandahar, after being plucked from the streets of Quetta in neighbouring Pakistan. Minutes before he was due to execute the attack, however, Abdul realised the lies of his recruiters seeking to turn him into a human bomb.
"When I opened my eyes, I saw it was a very black thing they wanted me to do," he later recalled.

"I began to cry and shout. People came out of their houses and asked what was wrong. I showed them I had something in my vest. Then they were scared too and called the police who took the bombs off me."

Afghan security officials say that Abdul's story is not unusual. In the past year, insurgents have used a wave of child suicide bombers, some as young as 10, on the ruthless assumption that small boys can pass through checkpoints and security cordons more easily than men.

A senior Afghan intelligence official estimated that more than 100 had been intercepted in the past 12 months, including 20 from the Kandahar area in the south. The insurgents seek to exploit the innocence of their recruits and turn it into a weapon.
The largely illiterate boys are fed a diet of anti-Western and anti-Afghan government propaganda until they are prepared to kill, he said. But the boys are also assured that they will miraculously survive the devastation they cause.

"The worst part is that these children don't think that they are killing themselves," said the official. "They are often given an amulet containing Koranic verses. Mullahs tell them, 'When this explodes you will survive and God will help you survive the fire. Only the infidels will be killed, you will be saved and your parents will go to paradise'."

Child bombers have been used by the Haqqani network, an insurgent group aligned to the Taliban.
Boys are frequently chosen from the madrassas, or Islamic colleges, in Pakistan's tribal areas, where poor Pashtun families in southern Afghanistan send their sons for a free education.
"They send them because they can't feed them sometimes. They have 10 sons, they can't feed them," said the Afghan official.
Gul Khan, who looks no older than 10, said his father had insisted he go to a madrassa in Pakistan run by a man called Maulawi Sher Jan.

"Each day they were preaching that we would tie bombs on to our bodies and attack foreigners in Afghanistan," he said after escaping and being arrested on the border.
"They told us the bombs would not kill us, only the Americans would die and you can come back to us."
Many of the captured boys have been pardoned, but others remain in Afghanistan's child jails. Once in custody, they often retract their televised confessions, justice officials in Kandahar said.

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/asia/afghanistan/8515012/Taliban-recruiting-nine-year-old-suicide-bombers.html

Taliban recruiting nine-year-old suicide bombers.
Taliban mullahs in Pakistan are recruiting child suicide bombers as young as nine to blow up Nato targets according to Afghan intelligence officials who have intercepted would-be attackers.
Kabul, 15 May 2011
Police seized a nine-year-old and three others aged between 12 and 14 as they tried to cross into eastern Afghanistan.
A spokesman for the Afghan intelligence agency said the boy is believed to be the youngest suicide bomber ever intercepted, though children as young as five have been used to plant bombs in Helmand.

The use of child suicide bombers to target Nato troops, government officials and those working with Hamid Karzai's government has been an insurgent tactic for several years, he said, but has increased recently.

The tactic, coupled with an increase in indiscriminate roadside bombs, had helped push the death toll among children in the conflict to an average of one-a-day, according to a United Nations report published earlier this year.
The child bombers are often lied to, brainwashed, or coerced inside Pakistan and have been responsible for several deadly bombings in recent months.

They are considered easier to recruit and more gullible than adults.

More than 25 failed suicide bombers aged under 18 are currently in Afghan juvenile custody, the spokesman said.

The boys had been given amulets containing verses from the Qur'an which they were told would protect them from the explosion. On their return, they would be hailed as heroes and their parents would be guaranteed entry into heaven.
Ghulam Farooq, the nine-year-old, said: "Our mullah told us that when we carried out our suicide attacks, all the people around us would die, but we would stay alive."

Lotfullah Mashal, spokesman for the National Directorate of Security (NDS), said the four had been captured at the Torkham border crossing trying to pass into Nangahar province.
He said: "In the past we have had suicide attackers from Waziristan and Bajaur, but this is the first time we have arrested child suicide attackers from the settled areas of Pakistan ... They are brainwashed and shown films on mobile phones about supposed atrocities.
"They were told there were rapes and the Koran was being burned by Americans. They were told Kabul had become a Western city, there was no Islam there and whoever went to blow himself up there would go to heaven."

Afghan officials said the most recent child suicide attack killed four civilians and wounded 12 others when a 12-year-old blew himself up in a bazaar in the Barmal district of Paktika.

THE MUSLIMS OF GAZA USE CHILDREN'S TELEVISION SHOWS TO CREATE SHAHIDS...MARTYRS FOR ISLAM

Shahid or Shaheed originates from the Qur'anic Arabic word meaning "witness" and is also used to denote a "martyr." It is used as an honorific for Muslims who have died fulfilling a religious commandment, especially those who die wielding jihad, or historically in the military expansion of Islam.

"TOMORROW'S PIONEERS" ...TOMORROW'S MARTYRS!
USING CHILDREN'S PROGRAMS TO CREATE MARTYRS

Also called The Pioneers of Tomorrow, is a children's program broadcast on the Palestinian Hamas-affiliated television station, Al-Aqsa TV .
Presented in a children's educational format similar to such shows as Sesame Street or Barney & Friends, Tomorrow's Pioneers is highly controversial as it contains antisemitism, Islamism, anti-Americanism, and other anti-Western themes.

Two animal character co-hosts, the Mickey Mouse clone Farfour and Nahoul the bee, were used to "champion violence, promote hatred of Israel and preach about world Islamic supremacy, and teach martyrdom."
In the show's narrative, the characters were, as the show described it, "martyred," with the deaths either directly or implicitly blamed on "The Jews, Israel, Israelis, and/or what they believed to be Zionists."

The show is considered to be the spiritual successor to an earlier Hamas-broadcast children's radio program series entitled Ovan and Branches.

Broadcast weekly on Fridays it runs for about 85 minutes.
Watchdog sources have characterized it as "the 'most serious' of martyrdom operations".
Arabic sources complain that the broadcasts of Ovan and Branches have been jammed by Israel in the past.

Saraa Barhoum, a young girl in a hijab who hosts Tomorrow's Pioneers, has made several music videos promoting the message "that death, not life, is the prime value", as one song's lyrics teach.

Saraa has seven siblings, her father is a university professor and her uncle, Fawzi Barhoum is a Hamas spokesman.

 In an August 2007 interview, at age 11, Saraa said she wanted to be a doctor, and if not that, then a martyr.

On the show, Farfour, the mouse, in episode 103, simulated shooting an AK-47 and throwing grenades.
In episode 105 (aired June 22, 2007), Farfour is beaten to death during an interrogation by an Israeli.

When introduced on Friday, July 13, 2007, Nahoul, the bee, promised "revenge upon the enemies of God, the murderers of the prophets," explaining "I want to continue in the path of Farfour - the path of Islam, of heroism, of martyrdom, of the mujahideen",
and, "We will go on Jihad when we grow up."

In episode 204, Nahoul visits the zoo where streaks of cruelty become apparent for the (first?) time. Nahoul states: "The cats here are asleep - the poor, wretched, imprisoned cats. I feel like abusing them. This cat is asleep. I feel like attacking it." Nahoul then proceeds to swing cats by their tails and throw them around their cage.

Assoud, a Bugs Bunny or Roger Rabbit-like character whose name means lion, was introduced after his brother, the previous co-host, Nahoul, died of illness.
 In explaining why he is called Assoud (lion), when Arnoub (rabbit) would be more appropriate, Assoud explains that "A rabbit is a term for a bad person and coward. And I, Assoud, will finish off the Jews and eat them."

On his deathbed, Assoud instructs Palestinian children that they must fight and die to liberate Haifa, Tel Aviv and other Israeli cities.
 Assoud hinted in episode 302 that he would be replaced by a tiger when he was martyred.
On the 2 January 2009, episode, Assoud was seen dying in a Gaza hospital after being injured in an Israeli attack.

Not to be outdone, HAMAS' adversary "Fatah" also began broadcasting a competing show targeting children on the Official PA TV network in September 2008,

Also prevalent on these "children's shows" are interviews with mothers of martyrs, siblings of martyrs, children of martyrs, all heroes in Gaza, all happy to be related to martyrs, and the live audience of children at the taping of each show are asked if THEY are ready to be martyrs for Islam...they shout that they are.

Videos of "brave children just like you" training at youth camps to launch rockets, shoot automatic weapons and create bombs were also very well promoted on some episodes.

The Disney-like characters were always shown being oppressed by "the murderous Jews", whom the children would shout at and vow to kill.
The characters as well as the host repeatedly tell the audience of new atrocities done to children by Jews, even going so far as to tell them Jews eat children.

Children are invited to call-in and share their oppressions with others, and many do so, some singing songs like "Oh Jerusalem, it is your time of death".

The children are taught a "new" history, concocted tales that are presented as facts, about mass murders, tortures, and enslavement of innocent Muslim children all over the world by the Jewish 'scum'.
Nahoul lectures to the audience that "we will liberate Al-Aqsa from the filth of the criminal Jews."

Sabah (age 13), a call-in guest, shares aspirations to become a journalist to which Nahoul asks "to photograph the Jews when they are killing Farfour and the little children?" 

Assoud. in one episode, is tempted to steal "one or two bills" from his father's "stash," and then a young call-in guest quotes the Prophet Muhammad in the Qur'an as having stated that "if my daughter Fatima had stolen, I would have chopped off her hand."  
Assoud is told that "If you were in Saudi Arabia now, they would chop off your hand."
Asmaa and Nur, in deference of the Qur'an agree that Assoud's hand should be cut off. 
Saraa offers as a compromise that "if we don't chop off his hand, maybe we should chop off his ear."

Within the Arabic community, critics have suggested that the show has potential to introduce bias in children at an age when they are unable to properly differentiate between political viewpoints.
 Harsher Arabic and Palestinian critics have suggested that the show is nothing short of an attempt at the indoctrination of children.

DISNEY'S DAUGHTER CONDEMNS IT  
76-year-old Diane Disney Miller, Mickey Mouse creator Walt Disney's last surviving child, commented to the press that, "What we're dealing with here is pure evil and you can't ignore that." She further commented that, "It's not just [about] Mickey, it's [about] indoctrinating children like this, teaching them to be evil.... and this is just going against the grain of humanity."

Several months after her statement, Hamas television again made use of Disney characters, this time in a five-minute cartoon attacking Fatah. The clip depicted the competing movement and its former local leader Mohammed Dahlan as corrupt and anti-Islamic rats, while portraying Hamas as a confident lion based on the Simba character from the 1994 film The Lion King.

THE U.S. CONGRESS WAS ASKED TO CONDEMN IT.
On April 1, 2008, Rep. Joseph Crowley submitted House Resolution No. 1069 in the United States House of Representatives, a resolution "[c]ondemning the use of television programming by Hamas to indoctrinate hatred, violence, and anti-Semitism toward Israel in young Palestinian children."

 The resolution discusses Tomorrow's Pioneers by name, specifically stating that:
"Whereas Hamas uses their television network, Al-Aqsa TV, to air a children's show 'Tomorrow's Pioneers' to breed new terrorists through hatred for Israel and Western nations; ... Whereas in February 2008, Hamas used a Bugs Bunny look-alike to indoctrinate children by inciting them toward hatred and violence by telling children that he 'will finish off the Jews and eat them'; Whereas in May 2007, Hamas used a Mickey Mouse look-alike in the same children's program to teach terrorist doctrines to children; ... the House of Representatives condemns Hamas for using a children's television program to incite hatred, violence, and anti-Semitism toward Israel; and demands that Hamas immediately suspend all television programming that incites hatred, violence, and anti-Semitism toward Israel ..."

In one video presented to the children watching HAMAS TV for kids, childen shout 
"We want to die as Martyrs"
[Al-Aqsa TV (Hamas) YouTube channel, May 8, 2014]
[See: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mue96rYTY7M]
Boy: "We love the resistance. We want to die as Martyrs. Long live the Martyrs..."

NO, NO, LITTLE BOY, MARTYRS DON'T LIVE LONG....

WHERE DO THEY GET THESE IDEAS TO FEED THEIR YOUNG?
THE QUR'AN.
THE QUR'AN ENCOURAGES MARTYRS.

~Think not of those who are slain in Allah's way as dead. Nay, they live, finding their sustenance in the presence of their Lord; They rejoice in the bounty provided by Allah: And with regard to those left behind, who have not yet joined them (in their bliss), the Shuhada's [martyrs'] glory is in the fact that on them is no fear, nor have they (cause to) grieve.
—Qur'an, Sura 3 (Al-i-Imran), Ayat 169 – 170

~Those who leave their homes in the cause of Allah, and are then slain or die,- On them will Allah bestow verily a goodly Provision: Truly Allah is He Who bestows the best provision.
—Qur'an, Surah 22 (Al-Hajj), Ayah 58

~The prophet Muhammad is reported to have said these words about martyrdom:
By Him in Whose Hands my life is! I would love to be martyred in Allah's Cause and then get resurrected and then get martyred, and then get resurrected again and then get martyred and then get resurrected again and then get martyred.
—Collected by Muhammad al-Bukhari, Sahih al-Bukhar

~Several Hadith also indicate the nature of a Shahid's life in Paradise. 
Shahids are thought to attain the highest level of Paradise, the Paradise of al-Firdous.
Haritha was martyred on the day (of the battle) of Badr, and he was a young boy then. His mother came to the Prophet and said, "O Allah's Apostle! You know how dear Haritha is to me. If he is in Paradise, I shall remain patient, and hope for reward from Allah, but if it is not so, then you shall see what I do?" 
He said, "May Allah be merciful to you! Have you lost your senses? Do you think there is only one Paradise? There are many Paradises and your son is in the (most superior) Paradise of Al-Firdaus."

~There are at least 5 different kinds of martyrs according to Hadith.
Allah's Apostle said, "Five are regarded as martyrs: They are those who die because of plague, abdominal disease, drowning or a falling building etc., and the martyrs in Allah's cause.

CHILDREN AS MARTYRS?
WHAT'S WRONG WITH THE ADULTS?
WHAT'S WRONG WITH THE PARENTS OF THESE POOR DEAD CHILDREN, OF THOSE ENCOURAGED TO BECOME MARTYRS?
IS IT THE FINANCIAL REWRDS THEY GET?
YES, ALL GET FINANCIAL REWARDS, GIFTS, AND FAME, LOTS OF FAME.
BUT IS IT SOMETHING ELSE?
CAN RAW HATE ALONE CAUSE SUCH STATEMENTS AS THOSE BELOW?

~Palestinian mother celebrates her son’s death:‎ ‎“This is the first time I see joy in my heart”‎ 


~
PA Minister of Religious Affairs, Mahmoud Al-Habbash:
"After prophecy and righteousness there is no status Allah has exalted more than Shahada (Martyrdom)... They went smiling to their deaths... The Shahidhas merit with Allah, a merit that no one else has... 'The Shahid - his sins are forgiven with the first gush of his blood from his wound... 'The Shahidadvocates on behalf of 70 members of his family, and saves them all from hell. The Shahid lives together with the prophets and the righteous ones.'" 
[Official PA TV, Nov. 8, 2013]

In 2002, FOX News reported that Saddam Hussein was personally paying families of Palestinian martyrs $25,000.
$25,000 FOR THE DEATH OF A SON, A DAUGHTER?
WHO WOULD PUT SO LITTLE VALUE ON SOMEONE THEY SAY THEY LOVE?


PAID TO KILL....REWARD ENOUGH TO ENTICE FAMILIES TO OFFER THEIR CHILDREN UP AS MARTYRS?

Palestinian Authority Rewards Terrorists for Number of Jews They Kill
FEBRUARY 8, 2015
Last year, Congressional legislators were astonished to learn that the Palestinian Authority was issuing monthly payouts totaling between $3 and 7 million as salaries and other financial rewards to specific terrorists and their families.

The money was channeled, in part, through the Ministry of Prisoners pursuant to the Law of the Prisoner. The law set forth a graduated scale, pegging monthly salaries to the length of Israeli jail sentences, which generally reflects the severity of the crime and the number of people killed and/or injured.

Ministry of Prisoners spokesman Amr Nasser has explained, “We are very proud of this program and we have nothing to hide.”

The Palestinian Authority (PA) is dependent upon foreign donor countries to supply much of its budget, which now exceeds $4.2 billion annually. About ten percent of the PA budget, more than $400 million, is contributed annually by United States foreign aid. The U.S. and many other countries have enacted laws forbidding any payments when the monies directly or indirectly support or encourage terrorism.

HOW NAIVE IS THAT?
GIVE THEM BILLIONS, ASK THEM NICELY NOT TO USE IT FOR TERRORISM?

“Martyrdom Establishment” compensation is dispensed worldwide, wherever the terrorist act takes place, according to a 2010 Palestinian Authority Social Ministry report. The report states that by 2009, more than 288 million shekels were paid in the program, of which more than 97 million went outside Israel and the Palestinian region to reward international terrorism.

Terrorist Sa’id Ibrahim Sa’id Ramadan went to a busy Jerusalem street around 2:30 p.m. on January 22, 2002, and began randomly shooting passers-by. Two people were murdered: Sarah Hamburger, 79, and Orna Sandler, 56. Dozens of others were injured. Police shot and killed Ramadan at the scene.

Just five days later, on January 27, 2002, Ramadan’s case was reviewed by the Palestinian Authority’s Ministry of Social Affairs for martyrdom status and to determine the financial benefits that would accrue to the family. That review was conducted by the Martyr’s Families and Injured Care Establishment, a little known organization originally created in 1969 by the Palestine Liberation Organization to systematize financial benefits to those wounded or killed in terrorist attacks deemed acts of “martyrdom.”

In the next section, “Description of Event,” the form states, “He was martyred while executing a martyrdom operation in West Jerusalem. The operation led to the death and injury of a number of Israelis.” In a short biographical sketch, Ramadan is described in these words, “He was known to be a calm person and faithful to his country. Among his expressions was ‘O Martyr! You have tested my soul.’
He was martyred while performing his nation duty.” 
The Establishment director ruled: “We recommend that he is considered as one of the al-Aqsa Martyrs.”

DO YOU SEE?
MARTYRDOM IS A DUTY TO NATIONS OF ISLAM.


Some weeks later, a Palestinian Authority internal security document shows approval of the recommendation, concluding “Sergeant Sa’id Ibrahim Sa’id Ramadan, from the Maritime Police/ Northern Governates, is hereby approved as a martyr by the Palestinian Authority as of January 23, 2002, by rank and salary, as he was martyred while performing his national duty.”

The money was “to be disbursed by General Headquarters / Northern Governates / Martyr’s Roster.” Copies of the payment order were routed to the PA’s Financial Administration, the Maritime Police, Social Affairs, Medical Services, Supply and Equipment, and Computer departments, among others.

How much would he get? A married martyr would have a family payout of about 1,300 shekels monthly. But the family of an unmarried martyr would only be entitled to 400 shekels. The money would go the father, but when the elder Ramadan passed away, his allocation was transferred to Ramadan’s mother, the documents record.

Hundreds of terrorists' families are rewarded yearly for their actions – not in a blind, faceless program, but in a meticulous, exacting official process that can remain in place for years. 
The money is represented to donor countries as “government salaries.” 

Most taxpayers in donor countries have no idea that their well-intended money is actually financing the flames of terrorism.

HAVE YOU DONATED TO MURDER?
HAVE YOU DONATED TO CHILDREN BECOMING MARTYRS?

CHILDREN LEARN FROM THOSE WHO ARE IN CHARGE OF THEIR LIVES...THEY ARE NOT BORN HATING ANYONE.
THEY ARE NOT BORN TO DIE BEFORE THEY REACH PUBERTY IN THE NAME OF JIHAD!
THEY ARE NOT BORN TO FIGHT IN THE PLACE OF ADULTS!

THESE ARE CHILDREN!
THE INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY MUST FIND A WAY TO HELP SAVE THEM!

IF THIS IS NOT STOPPED, THEN, RIGHT HERE IN AMERICA, WE MAY SOON HAVE TO TEACH OUR POLICE TO SHOOT VERY YOUNG CHILDREN...
BEFORE THEY BECOME MARTYRS FOR ISLAM.

A severe die-off began over 2 years ago. Scientists now say some starfish species may never recover and become extinct.


Tens of thousands of jellyfish have been found washed up on Ocean Beach, San Francisco.

 “These are strange times,” said Chris Lowe, a professor and head of the Shark Lab at Cal State Long Beach…

“The animals are acting as if we’re going to have an El NiƱo, but the ocean’s conditions aren’t conclusive.”

There has never been an outbreak of disease in natural populations of animals that I know that’s been this large,” said Drew Harvell, a professor of ecology and evolutionary biology at Cornell University who’s been studying the starfish deaths on the San Juan Islands, in northwestern Washington state.

WHILE MOST SCIENTISTS AREN'T SAYING THERE IS A DEFINITE EL NINO EVENT AND OTHERS WHO "THINK IT'S POSSIBLE" SAY IT IS OF LITTLE CONSEQUENCE, WHEN IT COMES TO EXPLAINING THE STRANDINGS AND DEATHS AND MASSIVE WASHING-ASHORE OF MARINE LIFE UNCOMMON TO THE PACIFIC COASTLINE, SOME UNSCRUPULOUSLY REACH FOR THAT SMALL SLIVER  OF EL NINO TO EXPLAIN THE UNEXPLAINABLE.

OTHERS HAVE THE GUTS TO SAY WHAT THEY THINK MAY BE OBVIOUS.

Melissa Miner, who, for the past 20 years, has worked as a research associate with the University of California, Santa Cruz’s Multi-Agency Rocky Intertidal Network (MARINe), a consortium of research groups collecting comparable data from more than 200 marine monitoring sites from Southeast Alaska to Mexico, from a webinar presentation you may view here: https://youtu.be/hV4C1kB6w8o


“This is very different from prior events…It’s NOT associated w/ warm water … Populations really [got] hit hard over the winter, this has never happened… The other big difference… is the geographic extent is much, much larger than we’ve ever seen.”

“Researchers are now keeping an eye on other echinoderms, such as sea urchins and sea cucumbers. 
Wasting has been observed in those animals… 

We’re seeing urchins in southern California with lesions in areas where stars were dying’ [said Miner].”

In spite of many theories, no one knows what might  have triggered such widespread wasting. 



disaster could be at the heart of the disease outbreak.

“With contaminated water from Japan’s crippled Fukushima nuclear complex  continuing to pour into the Pacific, scientists are concerned about how that  radioactivity might affect marine life. 

Although the ocean’s capacity to dilute  radiation is huge, signs are that nuclear isotopes are already moving up the local  food chain,” wrote Yale professor Elizabeth Grossman in a 2011 report entitled

“Radioactivity in the Ocean: Diluted, But Far from Harmless.”


Grossman compared the current epidemic with a previous uptick in mortality  
among starfish in the White Sea during the 1990s that was linked to nuclear  pollution.  (March  12, 2015)

" A variety of whales like orcas, sperm and humpback have shown up in high numbers, along with odd sightings like hammerhead sharks and whale sharks in the area."

AND LET'S NOT FORGET OARFISH.
"
The oarfish is the world's largest bony fish and lives mostly at great depths.  



Rick Feeney, ichthyology collections manager at the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County, told The Times earlier this week the giant oarfish only "wash up occasionally" because they're typically in deep open ocean.
When oarfish come closer to shore, Feeney said it may be a sign of distress. They could be starving, disoriented or landed in shallower water because of a storm." 
WHILE MAINSTREAM MEDIA IS FOCUSING ON SEALS AND SEA LIONS, IN THE PAST 3 TO 4 YEARS, UNTOLD NUMBERS OF OTHER MARINE SPECIES HAVE PERISHED.
WHAT COULD POSSIBLY KILL EVERYTHING FROM KELP TO ORCAS AND POLAR BEARS, FROM PLANKTON TO DOLPHINS, FROM CRAYFISH TO PELICANS? 


WHAT "DISEASE" CAN AFFECT SO MANY SPECIES AT THE SAME TIME IN SUCH VAST NUMBERS FOR 3 YEARS STRAIGHT?

TIME Magazine reported: 

"This is the third bleak year in the past decade for sea lion pups. In 2013, up to 70% of all the sea lion pups born the previous year may have died due to environmental events, according to Melin, twice the amount that might not make it to maturity in a normal year. 

Officials say this year’s pups appear more under-nourished than any they’ve observed in the past 40 years."

COME, LET US REASON TOGETHER.
WHAT KNOWN BACTERIA, FUNGUS OR VIRUS CAUSES BOTH SKIN LESIONS AND STERILITY, CONVULSIONS AND 'MELTED' EYEBALLS, TUMORS ON INTERNAL ORGANS AND HAIR LOSS, DISORIENTATION AND EMACIATION...IN ALL THESE SPECIES, AT THE SAME TIME?

SCIENTISTS AND VETERINARIANS SAY THEY "CAN'T BE SURE".
MANY NUCLEAR EXPERTS SAY THEY CAN BE SURE...
WHO DO WE BELIEVE?


March 7 (updated March 16) 2015

In January and February alone, 1,450 malnourished or dying sea lion pups have washed up on shore – compared with just 68 in the same period last year.

“These are pups that should be nursing on their mothers,” said Dr. Shawn Johnson, director of the veterinary science department at The Marine Mammal Center in Sausalito. “They’re (arriving) extremely emaciated. They have no energy stores. They’re just skin and bones, wasting away and on the brink of death.”

On San Miguel, where 20,000 sea lions are born each June, Melin said researchers believe “probably close to 10,000 are dead, and we expect more to die over coming months.” She said the mortality rate is similar on San Nicolas.

THAT'S A POSSIBLE 10,000 DEAD PER ISLAND.


The crayfish and the sardines that these young ones MIGHT feed on while their mothers are away have DISAPPEARED, simply vanished, and no one knows why.

The same type of emaciation has been reported in sea birds, walruses, 'killer' whales (Orcas), polar bears, dolphins.,salmon..the list is long.

Canada's shrimp, oyster and scallop fishermen report these species are also 'vanishing', by the millions.


Scientists have been noting a plankton die-off on both sides of the Pacific.
BUT, certain species of algae are exploding in numbers!

WHAT causes that, and on BOTH sides of the ocean in the past 2 to 4 years?

St. Petersburg (Russia) Times, July 10, 2014: Sea Lion Population Vanishing in Russia’s Far East 

Actually, mass die-offs of all these species, not just seal pups,  are being recorded on both sides of that ocean, and from the Arctic Circle to the tip of Chile in South America.

MEXICO HAS DECLARED A BAN ON BLUEFIN TUNA FISHING BECAUSE OF SO FEW NUMBERS THIS YEAR AND THE U.S. HAS SAID IT WILL ALSO, "MOST LIKELY" DO THE SAME.

REMEMBER THIS STORY ABOUT THE BLUEFIN?


"A study by Madigan et al. (2012) demonstrated the potential for highly-migratory species, in this case Pacific Bluefin tuna, a species that spawns and rears in the western Pacific, to transport radionuclides over long distances. 


Pacific Bluefin tuna caught off of California in August 2011 contained an average of 10 Bq/kg of radioactive cesium (134+137Cs) from Fukushima, which the fish accumulated in contaminated western Pacific waters prior to migration. "

Canada: Fish Eaters Threatened by Fukushima Radiation
The Vancouver Sun

16 January 2012
The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CIFA), which monitors food safety, says:

"Approximately 60 per cent of fish have shown to have detectable levels of radionuclides.".

In November, 2011, 65 per cent of the catches tested positive for cesium (a radioactive material created by nuclear reactors), according to a Montreal Gazette analysis of data on the fisheries agency's website. 


"People want to know what's happening with the cesium and how much is in the fish, but we don't know. It's frustrating," said oceanographer Ken Buesseler, a senior scientist at the non-profit Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution in Woods Hole, Massachusetts .


In October, a U.S. study co-authored by Buesseler reported that Fukushima caused history's biggest-ever release of radiation into the ocean -- 10 to 100 times more than the 1986 Chernobyl nuclear catastrophe..

Buesseler has reported some results from a 15-day cruise last May and June.

He co-authored the study in October that said cesium levels in the Pacific had gone up an astonishing 45 million times above pre-accident levels. 
The levels then declined rapidly for a while, but after that, they unexpectedly levelled off.

In July, cesium levels stopped declining and remained stuck at 10,000 times above pre-accident levels. "

ALMOST EVERY SPECIES OF FISH HAS SHOWN SIMILAR EFFECTS FROM "WHATEVER IS OUT THERE".


BUT SOME STUDIES HAVE HAD A LID PUT ON THEM.





VANCOUVER — Top bureaucrats in Ottawa have muzzled a leading fisheries scientist whose discovery could help explain why salmon stocks have been crashing off Canada's West Coast, according to documents obtained by Postmedia News.

The documents show the Privy Council Office, which supports the Prime Minister's Office, stopped Kristi Miller from talking about one of the most significant discoveries to come out of a federal fisheries lab in years.

Science, one of the world's top research journals, published Miller's findings in January. The journal considered the work so significant it notified "over 7,400" journalists worldwide about Miller's "Suffering Salmon" study.

THAT NEVER HAPPENED.
"There is no question in my mind it's muzzling," said Jeffrey Hutchings, a senior fisheries scientist at Halifax's Dalhousie University.
"An iron curtain has been draped over communication of science in the last five to six years," he said.

Miller heads a $6-million salmon-genetics project at the federal Pacific Biological Station on Vancouver Island. 
Miller is still not allowed to speak about the Science report, which she wrote in a Nov. 12 memo "reflects only a fraction of what we know."

KEEP THIS IN MIND ABOUT THE FISH, PLEASE.

"We just came down the stairs and little sea lions are being washed on to shore dying," Neda Soderqvist says in a video.
Earlier in the week, Kristin Thames says she stumbled across the same devastating scene.

 “It’s obvious that the ocean is changing, and the sea lions are sentinels of the seas. They’re telling us that there are major changes going on out there in the oceans today.


AND NOW, EVEN PIGEONS ALONG THE WEST COAST ARE DYING BY THE THOUSANDS!


FEB. 2, 2015,  The sudden increase in mortality is disturbing, said Krysta Rogers, an environmental scientist with the California Department of Fish and Wildlife, because the closest living relative to the extinct passenger pigeon has been struggling for decades to recover from rampant hunting, habitat loss and other environmental problems. 

Between winter 2011 and spring 2012, there were eight mortality events, now this.

Blue-footed diving seabirds called cassin's auklets, including this one, have been washing up dead by the thousands on beaches from San Francisco to central British Columbia.

The birds appear to be starving to death, so experts don't believe a toxin is the culprit.But why the birds can't find food is a mystery.

i COULD LIST PERHAPS ANOTHER 2 TO 3 HUNDRED OF SUCH EVENTS, BUT THESE ARE JUST THE ONES WE HAVE SEEN REPORTED ON THE "NEWS"!

AND LOOK HOW MANY DIFFERENT SPECIES!

FINALLY, AFTER 3 LONG YEARS, MAINSTREAM MEDIA IS BEGINNING TO NOT JUST REPORT ON THE MASSIVE MARINE LIFE DIE-OFFS ON AMERICA'S PACIFIC COAST, BUT ARE ALSO STARTING TO ASK QUESTIONS!

UNFORTUNATELY, SCIENTISTS ARE NOT YET FORTHCOMING ABOUT CAUSE, BLAMING OCEAN ACIDITY AND WARMING.


"The gruesome auklet deaths come just as scientists around the globe are seeing a significant uptick in mass-mortality events in the marine world, from sea urchins to fish and birds. Although there doesn't appear to be a link to the virus that killed tens of millions of sea stars along the same shores from California to Alaska over the past 18 months, some scientists suspect a factor in both cases may be uncharacteristically warm waters."
"VIRUS"? I THOUGHT THEY WEREN'T 100% CERTAIN YET WHAT CAUSED THAT.

WE NEED THE TRUTH!


Last year, experts warned that we could see 20-plus species go extinct if this "mystery die-off" continues.
What about now?


THE PACIFIC SEEMS TO BE DYING 

January 02, 2014

The Pacific Ocean appears to be dying, according to a new study recently published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences


Scientists from the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute (MBARI) in California recently discovered that the number of dead sea creatures blanketing the floor of the Pacific is higher than it has ever been in the 24 years that monitoring has taken place, a phenomenon that the data suggests is a direct consequence of nuclear fallout from Fukushima.

"In the 24 years of this study, the past two years have been the biggest amounts of this detritus by far," stated Christine Huffard, a marine biologist at MBARI and leader of the study, to National Geographic.


The masses of dead sea plankton, jellyfish, feces and other oceanic matter that typically only cover about 1 percent of the ocean floor were found to now be covering about 98 percent of it -- and multiple other stations located throughout the Pacific have since reported similar figures.

"In March 2012, less than one percent of the seafloor beneath Station M was covered in dead sea salps," writes Carrie Arnold for National Geographic


"By July 1, more than 98 percent of it was covered in the decomposing organisms. ... The major increase in activity of deep-sea life in 2011 and 2012 weren't limited to Station M, though: Other ocean-research stations reported similar data."

"HOW DOES THIS RELATE TO THE HUMAN POPULATION? 

ARE WE IN DANGER?"

YES.


AMERICAN PEDIATRIC ASSOCIATIONS BEGAN WARNING PARENTS OF NEWBORNS ABOUT THE DANGERS OF FUKUSHIMA'S RADIATION AND THYROID CANCERS AND ABNORMALITIES IN INFANTS WAY BACK IN 2011!WHEN THEY SAW ALMOST A 30% INCREASE IN BABIES BORN AFTER THE INITIAL MELTDOWNS IN JAPAN.


THEY SAW THE SIGNS EVEN THEN!
THE TOXIC LEAKS FROM FUKUSHIMA HAVE NOT STOPPED!


WHEN THE VERY BOTTOM OF THE FOOD CHAIN BEGINS TO DIE, IT TRICKLES UPWARD.
THINK OF IT LIKE THIS:
TINY PLANKTON ARE IRRADIATED, LARGER ORGANISMS EAT THE PLANKTON, NEXT MARINE CREATURE UP THE FOOD CHAIN, SAY SALMON, IS NOW CARRYING THE PLANKTON LOAD AND THE LOAD OF WHATEVER ATE THE PLANKTON.
WHATEVER EATS THE SALMON GETS ALL THOSE LOADS.
IT BIOMAGNIFIES, OR BIOACCUMULATES.

WE KEEP HEARING THE SAME OLD SONG...

"LOW LEVELS OF RADIATION"
"ACCEPTABLE LEVELS OF RADIATION"

"NOTHING TO BE PANICKY ABOUT"

REALLY?
LET'S LOOK AT SOME OF THOSE "PEER-REVIEWED STUDIES".

A MASSIVE PUBLICATION OF THE LONG-TERM EFFECTS OF "LOW-LEVEL RADIATION", AMONG OTHER THINGS, CAME OUT IN  .
HERE'S WHAT IT SAID ABOUT "LOW LEVELS":


Summary of findings: 
3. The lower the radiation level, the longer the latency period before the outbreak of cancer (established as early as 2000 by Pierce and Preston in the context of the RERF studies). 
[THE LOWER THE RADIATION LEVEL, THE LONGER THE LATENCY, AND THEN THE CANCERS APPEARED! UNDERSTAND?]

4. The genomic instability is passed on in the genes and increases exponentially with each generation. 
First signs of the cumulation effect could be cases of thyroid cancer among the children of irradiated parents. However, this is not yet certain. 

5. It was found that the incidence of non-cancerous disease had increased; mainly cardiovascular and stomach diseases, and cases of neurological-psychiatric illness were found to be a somatic effect of low-level radiation. The latter was observed mainly during research on liquidators and their children.


9. Genetic and teratogenic damage (malformations) have also risen significantly not only in the three directly affected countries but also in many European countries. In Bavaria alone, between 1000 and 3000 additional birth deformities have been found since Chernobyl. We fear that in Europe more than 10,000 severe abnormalities could have been radiation induced. The estimated figure of unreported cases is high, given that even the IAEA came to the conclusion that there were between 100,000 and 200,000 abortions in Western Europe because of the Chernobyl catastrophe.

THIS IS WHAT "LOW-LEVEL" RADIATION CAN DO, LOW, NOT HIGH!

THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS "ACCEPTABLE" OR "SAFE" LEVELS OF RADIATION AND THE ATOMIC ENERGY SCIENTISTS SAID SO OVER 60 YEARS AGO!

There are many reputable scientists who believe, based on their research, that there is no threshold for radiation damage to humans- no dose which is harmless. 

These are just a few of their words:
 “There is no safe level of exposure and there is no dose of radiation so low that the risk of a malignancy is zero”--Dr. Karl Z. Morgan, dubbed the father of Health Physics.  [1]

“…there is no safe level of exposure to ionising radiation, and the search for quantifying such a safe level is in vain.”—Rosalie Bertell, PhD. [2]

In 1940, several members of the US Committee on X-Ray and Radium Protection “proposed that the [radiation exposure] standard be lowered by a factor of five in response to the accumulating evidence that ANY amount of radiation, no matter how small, can cause genetic damage, injuring future generations.” Gioacchino Failla argued against the lowering of the standards saying that “if genetic damage were to be a consideration for standard-setters, then logically no radiation expposure should be allowed.”[3] 

“…the human epidemiological evidence establishes—by any reasonable standard of proof—that there is no safe dose or dose-rate…the safe-dose hypothesis is not merely implausible—it is disproven.” Dr. John.W. Gofman [4] 

“One thing we should take from this (1991 study of Oak Ridge weapons workers by Steve Wing, et al.) is that there isn’t any safe level of radiation exposure…” Dr. Carl Shy [5] . 

“The re-analysis (of Hanford Nuclear Facility worker data) provides no support for the idea that…there is reduced cancer effectiveness of radiation at low dose levels…” Drs. G.W. Kneale and A. Stewart [6] .

 “There is evidence that single tracks of all types of ionizing radiation can induce a variety of damage including DNA double-strand breaks which are believed to be critical lesions in radiation exposure. There is also a body of experimental evidence that argues against an error-free DNA repair system operating at low doses of ionizing radiation that might result in a dose threshold for the induction of gene and chromosomal mutations.” MP Little and CR Muirhead.[7] 

“An important feature of alpha irradiation is that, no matter how low the total dose to the whole body, a substantial dose of radiation (approx. .5 Gy) is delivered to an individual cell if it is traversed by a single alpha particle.” E Wright [8] .

 [FOOTNOTE NUMBERS ARE PROVIDED AT THE VERY BOTTOM OF THIS BLOG ARTICLE.]


IN SPITE OF ALL THESE STUDIES, THE KNOWLEDGE FROM ALL THE PAST DECADES THAT PROVE AGAIN AND AGAIN THAT ANY, ALL RADIATION AFFECTS LIFE, ALL LIFE, THE "SCIENTISTS" LOOKING AT ALL THESE DEAD MARINE CREATURES SEEM TO BE IN DENIAL.

THEY JUST WON'T TELL US THE CAUSE IS RADIATION!
WELL, SOME HAVE!
BUT THEY HAVE BEEN RIDICULED BY THEIR COLLEAGUES, HAVE HAD "GAG ORDERS" PLACED ON THEM, AND HAVE HAD TO LEAVE THEIR JOBS RATHER THAN DENY WHAT THEY KNOW...FUKUSHIMA HAS POISONED OUR PACIFIC OCEAN.


A BLIND MAN CAN SEE IT!
LOGIC, COMMON SENSE TELLS US THAT'S WHAT THIS IS, AND IT IS NOT GOING AWAY!

THIS REPORT IS FROM JANUARY, 2015, THIS YEAR!

"The U.S. Geological Survey and others have performed animal autopsies, called necropsies, on several of the emaciated Cassin's auklets. They've found no evidence of disease or trauma—no viruses or bacteria, no feathers coated with spilled oil. The birds appear simply to have starved to death." 

NO VIRUSES, NO BACTERIA, NO DISEASE, NO TRAUMA!

FROM ABC NEWS:
Brian Williams, anchor: Environmental officials in California say there’s been another highly troubling report about what’s going on in the Pacific.  Something is killing the starfish and they don’t know why. They have been dying in record numbers on the West Coast. 

Pete Raimondi, marine biologist: It’s happened so rapidly that some species are just missing. 

Miguel Almaguer, reporter: An epidemic affecting waters from Alaska to Southern California causing millions of starfish to fall apart and melt away.  Two species that used to thrive here have now vanished. 

Raimondi: I’ve had probably 100 emails thus far saying,
Well, what about Fukushima, because of radiation?’ 

We haven’t ruled that out yet, but we’re clearly not ruling that in.

"CLEARLY NOT RULING IT IN?"
WHY NOT?
WHY NOT, BECAUSE THAT WOULD CREATE PANIC?
DON'T WE HAVE A RIGHT TO KNOW FOR SURE?

FROM NBC:"Marine biologists are worried that this year's rescues could be on pace to match and maybe even exceed those 2013 when the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) declared an Unusual Mortality Event (UME). More than 1,300 sea lions were rescued between January and May that year — five times the average rate.

It's a lack of fish in the wild though that may be causing the increased strandings this year, but scientists are still trying to determine what is causing the shortage."


STOP FOOLING AROUND, FELLOWS!

THIS HAS BEEN ONGOING FOR 3 YEARS STRAIGHT!
WHEN DID FUKUSHIMA START KILLING THE ENTIRE PACIFIC OCEAN?
3+ YEARS AGO!
THINK!

CANADA HAS BEEN MORE FORTHCOMING WITH QUESTIONS ABOUT CAUSE, AND IN DILIGENTLY CONTINUING THE MONITORING OF RADIATION THAN THE U.S. OR JAPAN!


Of the fish being sold to Canada, in 2012, the Vancouver Sun recorded the number of specimens testing positive for Cesium-137, namely:


100 per cent of monkfish, carp, seaweed and shark; 94% of cod and anchovies; 93% of tuna and eels; 92% of sardines; 91% of halibut; 73% of mackerel.



 THE MEDIA IS SPOTLIGHTING THE PLIGHT OF SEAL PUPS, BUT IT IS NOT JUST PUPS!


FROM CBS:“The difference is we’re not just seeing little pups,” said Lauren Palmer, a veterinarian there. “Females and yearlings are coming in with respiratory issues and elevated abnormalities in their blood work. It’s really hard to wrap our head around the story of what’s happening.”


“ We've told the centers to prepare for the worst,” she said.

Further alarming the center’s experts is an influx of varying species, according to Executive Director Keith Matassa. 

SEE, IT'S NOT JUST SEALS AND SEA LIONS!

TIME TO TELL THE WHOLE TRUTH!

EVEN NOAA, WOODS HOLE HAS HAD TO ADMIT THAT THESE DEATHS AMONG OCEAN SPECIES ARE OCCURRING IN ASTONISHING AND RECORD NUMBERS, THAT THEY HAVE NOT SEEN ANYTHING LIKE IT BEFORE.


REMEMBER THE MASSIVE DIE-OFF OF ANCHOVIES FROM AMERICA'S WEST COAST ALL THE WAY DOWN TO CHILE?  


REMEMBER THE INCREDIBLE DEATH RATES AMONG DOLPHINS, STING RAYS, PELICANS, SEAGULLS AND OTHER SEABIRDS, STARFISH, SHRIMP, OYSTERS, WHALES, SHARKS, URCHINS, SARDINES, WALRUSES, HERRING, SALMON, EVEN KELP OVER THE PAST 3 YEARS?


AND THAT'S NOT THE ENTIRE LIST OF RECENT DIE-OFFS SINCE FUKUSHIMA BEGAN CONTAMINATING EVERYTHING, NOT BY ANY MEANS!

REMEMBER THE VIDEO, THE REPORT BY THE AUSTRALIAN WHO CROSSED THE ATLANTIC RECENTLY AND WAS DEEPLY MOVED AND SHOCKED TO SEE IT DEVOID OF LIFE.


"The Australian traveler sailing from Japan to California, USA, reported that it appeared the entire ocean was dead. All he saw was a whale rolling helplessly in the sea with a tumour on its head, and “for 3,000 nautical miles there was nothing to be seen”. No turtles, no sea birds, no dolphins, no sharks".


SAILORS, FISHERMEN, INDIGENOUS PEOPLE, PACIFIC ISLANDERS, COASTAL RESIDENTS, ALL EYEWITNESSES TO THIS HAVE BEGGED FOR FURTHER TESTING BY INDEPENDENT LABS.
THEY KNOW, AS SHOULD WE, THAT NO "DISEASE" AFFECTS SO MANY DIFFERENT SPECIES IN EXACTLY THE SAME WAYS. 


SUCH AN ALL-ENCOMPASSING DISEASE DOES NOT EXIST.

RADIATION SICKNESS DOES HAVE THE SAME EFFECTS ON ALL LIFE, HOWEVER.
RADIATION KILLS EVERYTHING.


ACROSS SPECIES, WHETHER FEATHERED OR FINNED OR MAMMAL, THOSE THAT ARE DYING HAVE SEVERAL THINGS IN COMMON.


~ LESIONS OF THE SKIN. 

In many animals, the skin is hanging in shreds from their bodies.
Polar bears, seals, walruses have been photographed with extreme fur loss.
Horses along the California coast have shown similar lesions and loss of hair.


The same lesions and abnormalities are seen all over the Fukushima region in dead or dying farm animals.
IT IS NOT "TAINTED HAY"!

[NOTE: See the horses for yourselves at the following link, but I warn you, the photos are very troubling to any animal lover.
http://www.hesperiastar.com/article/20140805/News/140809900 ]


~ BLEEDING EYES.
In some cases, "melted" eyes. Only infected eye sockets left in some victims.

~STERILITY OR DEFORMED YOUNG

In the cases of seals, sea lions, several species of whales, dolphins, pelicans, walruses, seagulls, Orcas, salmon, there are severe declines in offspring.
Scientists have also documented that many young that are born live but a few hours to days and show deformities.

The Mexican breeding grounds of the California brown pelican is almost void of fledglings. 


 KPCC and Environmental Reporter, Jed Kim. “For the past 46 years, Dan Anderson, a professor emeritus at the University of California at Davis, has visited the Baja Peninsula, where 80-90 percent of California brown pelicans are born. This year, he said that he estimates pelicans have reared less than one percent of the young they normally would.” 


LESS THAN 1%! 

AND THEY WANT US TO BELIEVE THIS IS CAUSED BY A "VIRUS" OR A "DISEASE"? 

~DISORIENTATION, CONVULSIONS, UNCONTROLLABLE "HEAD-LOLLING", HINDRANCE TO NORMAL MOVEMENT.

These neurological symptoms point to brain damage, and, indeed, many necropsies on EACH of these Pacific species have shown brain damage.

~TUMORS

This seems to be affecting the whales considerably and have been especially noticed on their heads.
Necropsies of several species also revealed tumors in major organs.


~LESIONS ON INTERNAL ORGANS.
HEMORRHAGE OF INTERNAL ORGANS.
Found in fish as well as in polar bears, in virtually all species of Pacific marine life forms.


IT'S ON BOTH SIDES OF THE PACIFIC!

JAPANESE, KOREAN, THAI FISHERMEN AS WELL AS PACIFIC ISLAND NATIVES AND RUSSIANS ARE ALL SEEING THE SAME THING IN THEIR WATERS, BUT NOT JUST FISH...



The Steller sea lion [has seen a] mysterious population drop on Russia’s extreme eastern lands this year, Russian researchers have said. 
[They] established new reproductive rookeries [but] this summer, the number of new pups born at the rookeries was the lowest in more than 20 years, 

 By the end of the sea lions’ reproductive season in early July, only 163 pups were born on the main colony 

 “The reasons for the sea lion population drop on the islands are unknown, and the decline in their number causes concern both among scientists who are studying it and among nature preserve employees,” the statement said.

10th June 2014 - Tens of thousands of dead crabs found washed ashore in Phuket, Thailand

Tens of thousands of dead sea crabs were spotted this morning on the shore of Pa Lai Beach in Phuket's Chalong sub-district.

SOUTH KOREA OPENLY BLAMES FUKUSHIMA RADIATION!

JAPANESE FISHING VILLAGES HAVE ASKED FOR HELP, THERE'S JUST VERY LITTLE LEFT TO CATCH, AND THEY CAN SEE THE DAMAGE TO THE FISH.


PACIFIC ISLANDERS HAVE ASKED FOR INTERNATIONAL TEAMS TO STUDY WHAT'S CAUSING FOOD FISH AND SHELLFISH TO DISAPPEAR.


BUT THE DENIAL AND THE BLAMING THIS ON "CHANGING OCEANS DUE TO CLIMATE WARMING" JUST DON'T WORK ANYMORE.

TOO MANY SPECIES ARE DYING!

SOME DO JUST FINE, NORMALLY, IN VERY WARM WATERS!

SOME ARE DYING BY THE MILLIONS!
THIS SORT OF THING HAS NEVER, EVER HAPPENED BEFORE.

Pete Raimondi, marine biologist: "It’s happened so rapidly that some species are just missing. "

YES, ENTIRE SPECIES...MISSING.

ABC: NEWS ‘Mysterious surge’ in sick marine mammals all along California coast.


THIS IS NOT ABOUT SOME COMMON DISEASE THAT HAS JUMPED FROM ONE SPECIES TO ANOTHER.
IT IS NOT OCEAN WARMING, EL NINO, NONE OF THAT.

SAILORS HAVE BEEN REPORTING SINCE 2012 THAT THE PACIFIC APPEARS TO BE DYING, THAT THE BASIC FOOD CHAIN ITSELF IS DYING OFF.


MIGRATING SEA ANIMALS HAVE REROUTED THEIR MIGRATIONS TO AVOID THE DEEPER PACIFIC, CLINGING MORE TO SHORELINES, BEING SPOTTED IN RECORD NUMBERS WHERE THEY ARE NOT NORMALLY SEEN.


INDIGENOUS TRIBES NEAR THE ARCTIC CIRCLE HAVE REPORTED THAT WALRUSES AND SEA LIONS ARE CLINGING TO SMALL ISLANDS, WON'T GO INTO THE WATER, THAT ORCAS ARE GETTING STUCK IN ICE BECAUSE THEY'RE TRYING NEW ROUTES, THAT PODS OF ORCA ARE LOSING THEIR MATRIARCHS, THAT FISH THAT HAVE BEEN SHOWING UP FOR GENERATIONS JUST AREN'T COMING BACK LIKE BEFORE! 


WHAT WILL IT TAKE FOR "SCIENTISTS" TO LISTEN TO THOSE WHO KNOW THESE DEATHS ARE SOMETHING NEW, SOMETHING WITH A COMMON CAUSE...RADIATION?

WHEN WILL THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA STOP BEING AFRAID TO "PANIC THE PEOPLE" AND JUST TELL IT LIKE IT IS? 


AND WHEN WILL OUR GOVERNMENT AND JAPAN'S START BEING AS HONEST WITH US AS RUSSIA WAS AFTER CHERNOBYL?


WE CAN'T STOP THIS UNTIL JAPAN STOPS LEAKING RADIATION INTO OUR OCEAN AND OUR ATMOSPHERE!


IGNORING IT, DENYING IT WON'T STOP IT!


THE DESCRIPTIONS OF MAMMALS, SEABIRDS, FISH DYING ARE THE SAME DESCRIPTIONS GIVEN OF ANIMALS DYING FROM RADIATION SICKNESS!


THERE IS NO COMMON DISEASE OR PARASITE THAT AFFECTS ALL THESE SPECIES AND WE MUST SEE THAT IT'S ALL HAPPENING SIMULTANEOUSLY!
IT HAS TO BE RADIATION.


3 YEARS AND COUNTING BODIES   


OFFICIALS AND LOCALS ALL ALONG THE WEST COAST, FROM PERU AND CHILE TO CANADA HAVE COMPLAINED OF THE STENCH, THE PATHETIC SIGHT OF MILLIONS OF DEAD CREATURES WASHING ASHORE....FOR THE PAST THREE LONG YEARS! 


IT IS NOT JUST MARINE LIFE DYING AND BEING BORN WITH DEFECTS. 


ALL ACROSS AMERICA PEOPLE ARE SENDING IN PHOTOS AND VIDEOS OF "MUTATIONS", DEFECTS IN EVERYTHING FROM BUTTERFLIES TO CALVES AND COLTS.
MUTATED PLANTS, GARDEN-RAISED AND WILD, HAVE BEEN WELL DOCUMENTED FOR THE PAST 3 YEARS!


A SIMPLE ONLINE SEARCH FOR "IMAGES OF MUTATIONS IN AMERICA SINCE FUKUSHIMA" WILL SHOW THOUSANDS OF PHOTOS, SOME SO PITIFUL IT WOULD MAKE ANYONE WEEP.


WHAT AFFECTS GENES, DNA, CELLS?

A LOOK AT WHAT'S HAPPENING TO LIFE NEAR FUKUSHIMA TODAY SHOULD ANSWER THAT.
STUDIES PROVE SEVERE DAMAGE TO MITOCHONDRIAL DNA, WHICH AFFECTS THE NEXT GENERATION, AND THE NEXT...


AND IT'S MOVING INLAND HERE.  

25th April 2014 - More than 500,000 Carp die suddenly in a river in Kentucky.

4th March 2014 - Hundreds of dead ducks found around Lake Erie and Lake Ontario in New York.

17th March 2015 - 2,000+ snow geese drop dead out of sky in Idaho.  

2nd March 2015 - Thousands of dead fish found washed up along Columbia River in Portland, Oregon. 


HOW MANY NEWS STORIES HAVE WE ALL READ FOR 3+ YEARS NOW OF FLOCKS OF BIRDS, FROM STARLINGS TO SWANS, FALLING DEAD WHILE IN FLIGHT, THEIR DEATHS RULED "MYSTERIOUS", OF FISH IN LAKES AND RIVERS DYING BY THOUSANDS TO MILLIONS?

WHY DENY IT ANY LONGER?
WHY BLAME EVERYTHING BUT THE REAL SOURCE?   

Dr. Erica Frank: "In particular, this is the piece that indicates to me that they have found levels detectable-but-difficult-to-explain-without-undue-alarm:"

"We need to test the fish. Nobody, no entity, no country tests the salmon for radiation exposure: red flag. In 2012, 100% of bluefin tuna tested in California showed positive for cesium directly associated with Fukushima. "  

AS MILLIONS OF GALLONS OF RADIOACTIVE WATER FLOWS INTO THE PACIFIC EVERY WEEK, AN ESTIMATED 800 TONS EACH DAY, AND AS THE RADIOACTIVE PLUMES CONTINUE TO TRAVEL ACROSS THE PACIFIC ON THE WIND , WHY DOESN'T OUR GOVERNMENT JUST GO AHEAD AND MAKE THE ANNOUNCEMENT:

"LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, FUKUSHIMA IS KILLING THE PACIFIC...AND WE'RE NEXT!"

There is one odd website that, for whatever reason, lists mass animal deaths across the globe, and provides LINKS to all they list.
I followed every link, found only a few broken ones, but iit has incredible amount of data on it.
CLICK HERE TO GO READ THERE AND DON'T BE 'TURNED OFF' BY ITS NAME.
