MAYBE THOSE WHO ARE JUST AS DIRTY AS THE COPS?
I was fortunate recently to stumble upon one of the best-documented articles I have read in my 16 years of research into the shadowy workings of our "intelligence" agencies.
9/11 angered me and I began to dig and haven't stopped yet.
I obtained the gracious permission of the author, Mr. Jeffrey Marty, who writes "Dispatches from the 15th District", and which article can be found at https://fighting15th.com/2017/08/03/robert-mueller-dirty-cop/, to reproduce it in toto here at the Tea Room.
I have much to add, but, for now, please read his findings and THINK.
We can still THINK, and we must.
Knowledge is power, it erases fear and leads us to question more and more until we learn to QUESTION EVERYTHING.
[NOTE: The Tea Room was unable to embed two videos and I omit one photo from the article below. I placed another two photos out of context, at the top of this page.
Please visit Mr. Marty's website to view those omissions.
Mr. Marty doesn't use all-caps, bold type or highlighted text as I do to irritate my readers. You'll like that, yes, people of earth?]
Robert Mueller: Dirty Cop
Published August 3, 2017
A former colleague recently characterized Robert Mueller as “ramrod straight” and “utterly incorruptible.” Similar language was breathlessly repeated in mainstream media biographies on Mueller in Politico, BBC, and Time magazine. Mueller’s Vietnam-era service in the United States Marine Corps and 2004 tag-team with then-Deputy Attorney General James Comey to save American democracy from warrantless spying are mainstays of these biographies, which always send a clear message that his integrity is beyond reproach.
It’s always suspicious when anyone’s credibility is oversold like this, but that goes double when the same person was FBI director for 12 years—spanning across both the Bush and Obama administrations from 2001 to 2013—yet most people can’t remember anything about him. We should remember actions he took to impartially uphold the law. Sadly, that is not the case.
What stands out most during then-FBI Director Mueller’s term in office is the two-tiered system of justice, when obvious crimes and scandals involving government officials and private-sector elites were ignored or even covered up by the FBI. What Mueller failed to do to protect our country says more than anything he did.
Recent leaks suggest that Special Counsel Mueller is examining one of the President’s 2008 Palm Beach real estate deals, as well as the 2013 Miss Universe competition held in Moscow. During the very same time period as those events, FBI Director Mueller repeatedly failed to act in cases involving government corruption and dangerous crimes. His level of aggressiveness in investigating our President is the exact inverse of how he acted when he was tasked with protecting America.
Major Scandals During Mueller’s FBI Years:
As the nation’s top cop, then-FBI Director Mueller had massive resources to investigate crimes, as well as the ability to arrest suspects and recommend prosecution of the offenders. The following is an abbreviated list of major scandals and likely crimes that Mueller did not meaningfully investigate as FBI Director—no arrests, no consequences:
Falsification of Iraq War intelligence (2003): information providing the sole justification for a war that caused the death and dismemberment of thousands of American soldiers was later found to be fabricated, false, or overstated at the time it was presented to the public. Mueller not only failed to investigate and arrest any of the perpetrators of this deception—he actively participated in the plot:
Vanishing Currency (2003): the US government sent $12 billion in $100 bills to the Iraq War combat theater, which mostly went unaccounted for after it entered the country.
NSA Warrantless Surveillance (2001-2013): illegal collection of domestic phone records and internet communications that were sent or received by US citizens, in violation of Fourth Amendment protections against warrantless search and seizure, followed by potential perjury committed by Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, who denied the practices under oath; the 2013 Snowden revelations proved that the 2004 story about Comey and Mueller stopping illegal surveillance practices was nearly meaningless in practice.
Emailgate (2007): discovery that several top Bush administration officials violated the Presidential Records Act by using an RNC server for email communications while conducting official business, followed by the deletion of millions of the same emails.
Walter Reed Neglect Scandal (2007): troops recovering from severe war-related injuries were subjected to squalid living conditions and grotesquely substandard care due to a privatization agreement that resulted in drastic staffing cuts, after which patients were told to “keep quiet” and whistleblowers suffered retaliation from higher-ups.
IRS Targeting (2010-2013): the IRS intentionally selected and then delayed or denied tax-exempt 501(c)(3) applications from conservative groups to prevent them from participating in the 2012 election, followed by IRS agent Lois Lerner invoking her Fifth Amendment privilege against self-incrimination.
Fast and Furious (2010): this ATF program, which seems to have served no rational purpose, allowed over 2,000 guns to be purchased illegally inside the United States and then “walked” into Mexico for use by criminals, one of which was later used in the 2010 murder of Border Agent Brian Terry by the member of a Mexican cartel.
Associated Press Spying (2012): the Department of Justice illegally seized the communications of AP reporters made during April and May 2012, allowing the DOJ to unmask journalists’ confidential sources.
Clinton Foundation Pay-for-Play (2009-2013): during the period in which Hillary Clinton held the office of Secretary of State, the Clinton Foundation and Bill Clinton received millions of dollars in paid speaking fees and a million dollar “gift” from countries involved in matters with the State Department, many of which had ties to terrorism and human rights abuses; some of these funds were apparently diverted from charitable causes to personal expenses, such as Chelsea Clinton’s 2010 wedding.
Russian Uranium Deal (2009-2013): Hillary Clinton’s State Department approved a deal allowing a Russian company to control 20% of the uranium mining production capacity inside the United States, which was followed by millions of dollars in donations to the Clinton Foundation from people associated with the transaction.
Clinton Private Email Server (2009-2013): during her entire tenure as Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton dodged Freedom of Information Act requirements by using a private email server to conduct official government business, as well as sent and received classified information that was Top Secret over an unsecured system—an “extremely reckless” (and obviously illegal) act.
HSBC Bank Money Laundering Scandal:
Although it received little coverage in the mainstream media, the HSBC money laundering case reveals the complete and total corruption of federal law enforcement toward the end of Mueller’s term as FBI Director. No case demonstrates how the swamp works better than this one.
For nearly the entire duration of Mueller’s term, UK-based HSBC, an international bank with divisions and depositors worldwide, was doing billions of dollars in business with drug cartels, rouge nations, and even banks associated with terrorism, taking massive deposits made in foreign nations and funneling them into its US banks.
The overall amounts were staggering, totaling hundreds of billions of dollars, which likely gave HSBC a comparative advantage over its rivals and greater market share, while providing international criminals with the ability to “launder” money into the US banking system with little-to-no oversight.
In 2012, a whistleblower, who collected information and recorded conversations with HSBC employees, provided strong proof to the public that the bank was operating as a “criminal enterprise.”
Mexican Drug Cartels: From 2002 to at least 2009 (and possibly much longer), HSBC bank laundered billions of US dollars for Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman’s murderous Sinaloa Cartel and similar groups. In 2009, Forbes placed El Chapo at #41 on its “World’s Most Powerful People” list.
The same year, many experts agreed that Mexico’s drug war had rendered it a “failed state.” .
By 2012, the Sinaloa cartel alone was estimated to have annual revenues of $3 billion, which were comparable to Facebook or Netflix. By April 2013, toward the end of Mueller’s term, the Sinaloa and other Mexican cartels had become the number one importer and distributor of narcotics inside the United States (with many of the cartel’s top agents living inside the United States), El Chapo had become “public enemy no. 1,” and 70,000 murders and nearly 27,000 disappearances were attributable to the drug war inside Mexico.
Ignoring the obvious, HSBC inexplicably designated Mexico a “low risk” country for money laundering, allowing shady depositors and known drug kingpins to deposit billions of US dollars—in cash—into bank accounts in HSBC Mexico, followed by the same money becoming accessible at HSBC in the US. With legitimate-looking banking, the Mexican drug cartels were given huge expansion potential inside the US that would otherwise have been easily detected if the cartels tried to purchase properties, vehicles, and shell businesses here using cash.
Much of the cash crossing the US-Mexico border (estimated at $25 billion per year in 2010) found a ready home in HSBC branches south of the Rio Grande. HSBC Mexico made billions of dollars in suspicious transactions, such as customers depositing hundreds of thousands of US dollars into a single bank account in a single day, during which the cash was put through teller windows in boxes that were designed to fit through the window openings.
Because there was virtually no investigation into these transactions or even the identities of depositors, who included high-profile drug dealers, accounts were rarely closed due to the suspicious activity. After all, Mexico was a “low risk” country for money laundering at the time.
Terrorists and Rogue Nations: The bank’s practices also allowed terrorist groups and rogue nations to have access to our financial markets in a similar manner, facilitating financing of their activities inside this country, as well as providing greater international investment possibilities for sanctioned regimes—including $19 billion deposited from Iran into HSBC’s foreign affiliate banks. There were also lax rules for setting up relationships with affiliate banks in other countries, which included a Saudi Arabian bank with ties to funding terrorism.
Policies Prevented Catching Crooks: Even in the rare instance where money laundering controls were in place, inadequate follow-up measures undermined any intervention. The US division of HSBC allowed thousands of suspicious accounts to remain open after they were flagged for closure. “Know your customer” practices were virtually nonexistent, which allowed bad actors to get around things like Iranian sanctions and Patriot Act protections, which in turn was aggravated by bank employees doing things like deleting information about the country of origin on deposits from places like Iran. Large-scale warnings, such as the migration of billions of US dollars in cash deposits into HSBC Mexico, went unnoticed because the bank apparently had no system in place to monitor such activity. To say all of this was “extremely reckless” would be an understatement—it’s inconceivable that the bank’s employees and executives didn’t know what was happening at the time.
“Ramrod” Mueller to the Rescue: What did Mueller do to aggressively investigate and shut down this massive “foreign influence” involving our country’s drug epidemic and threat of terrorism? Basically nothing. No bank executives or employees were arrested or jailed. People have spent more time in jail for smoking a joint than any HSBC executive or employee did for facilitating drug cartel business and terrorist financing.
On October 17, 2010, the Treasury Department issued “cease and desist” letter to HSBC for violations of the Bank Secrecy Act. This was followed by a Senate subcommittee investigation, which provided a comprehensive report and took hearing testimony on July 17, 2012. In what appeared to be prepared remarks, one bank compliance executive resigned at the hearing, while another executive indicated HSBC “did our best” in Mexico.
With nearly all of the investigation already completed by the Senate and already in the public eye, the Department of Justice was finally forced to file a four-count felony indictment against defendant HSBC on December 11, 2012, which included three felony counts relating to grossly inadequate anti-money laundering practices and one count for violation of the Trading With The Enemy Act.
On the same day, and over the objections of career DOJ prosecutors, then-AG Holder allowed HSBC to enter into a deferred prosecution agreement, under which the charges would be dropped if the bank stayed out of trouble for 5 years and paid a “record fine” consisting of $1.256 billion in forfeited assets and an additional $665 million in civil penalties. Added together, the punishment totaled approximately 9% of one year’s profits for HSBC’s worldwide operations, which amounted to a whopping $21.9 billion in 2011 alone.
Also the same day, then-US Attorney Loretta Lynch led a press conference alleging that (1) an alphabet soup of federal agencies had conducted a serious investigation and (2) the “record fine” was somehow adequate punishment.
Notably, “ramrod straight” Mueller and Holder were not present, despite the obvious national importance of the case. The DOJ’s press release (echoed by the FBI, which simply re-posted DOJ’s release) bragged about the “heavy price” of the fine being imposed.
Despite the “heavy price” paid for its rampant criminal behavior, HSBC was somehow able to sponsor the star-studded 2014 Clinton Global Initiative. (Perhaps not coincidentally, the Clinton Foundation also received up to $81,000,000 in donations from HSBC’s illustrious group of account holders.)
But not everyone bought into Lynch’s sales pitch. Even CBS News seemed suspicious of the deal, which was obviously disproportionate to the criminal conduct involved:
While a US citizen sending money to terrorists can result in a 20-year prison sentence, and many US citizens have been sentenced to decades in prison for even marijuana-related crimes, the bank’s executives and employees never spent one day in jail for their roles in assisting terrorist-connected nations and Mexican drug cartels to do business in the United States—an example of the “two systems” of justice than many Americans believe exist between the elites and regular citizens.
If the FBI uses search warrants, recorded transactions, confidential informants, wiretaps, GPS tracking, and conducts a broad sweep of witness interviews in cases involving drug trafficking and terrorism in other cases, why wouldn’t Mueller have done the same to build a case here? Mueller’s absence in the HSBC case says as much about the cover-up as when Holder refused to prosecute over the objections of career prosecutors.
James Comey Joins HSBC’s Board of Directors: Less than two months after the 2012 deferred prosecution agreement, HSBC appointed James Comey to its Board of Directors as head of the Financial System Vulnerabilities Committee.
When he joined HSBC, Comey left a job working as general counsel for Bridgewater Associates hedge fund, where he earned over $6.6 million per year, for a position at a disgraced criminal bank—one recently charged with laundering El Chapo’s money—that paid under $200,000 per year (approximately three percent of his salary at Bridgewater). It’s hard to say why anyone would take that job, and that pay cut, unless there was some additional incentive.
While Comey may have provided HSBC with a Norman Rockwell-type face for its money laundering reform program, it doesn’t appear that Comey actually reformed any of the bank’s practices. During the time Comey was on the Board, HSBC was involved in laundering hundreds of millions of dollars from Russia into the British banking system—a scheme with direct ties to the Kremlin and Vladimir Putin. Apparently Comey missed this activity while he led the search for “vulnerabilities” in HSBC’s “financial system.”
Comey left HSBC in July 2013 to become FBI Director when Mueller stepped down.
Mueller Became Partner At The Law Firm That Represented HSBC: In its 2012 Year In Review, law firm Wilmer Hale indicated the following: “our regulatory, transactional, securities and investigations experience converged in our representation of HSBC in connection with Department of Justice and Senate inquiries.”
Less than one year after leaving the FBI, the “utterly incorruptible” Mueller took a lucrative position as a partner at the same law firm that represented HSBC in 2012, working in the “government investigations practice” section of the firm. Although it’s unknown whether Mueller ever handled HSBC’s matters personally, Wilmer Hale still includes HSBC in its list of “representative clients.” In 2016 alone, profits per partner at Wilmer Hale were $1.81 million.
In May 2017, Mueller left the firm to become Special Counsel for the Russia investigation.
Subsequent Inaction: In 2014, President Obama appointed Loretta Lynch to replace Holder as Attorney General.
Despite criticism of her role in the HSBC case, the Senate voted to confirm Lynch to the post in 2015.
A few weeks before she was sworn in, her own office suggested that HSBC had not complied with the 2012 deferred prosecution agreement.
What did AG Lynch do to hold HSBC “accountable” once she took over? Nothing. By 2016, even Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) was critical of Lynch’s inaction against HSBC—it was that bad.
Russia, Russia, Russia:
If Mueller failed to do anything to stop these obviously corrupt and criminal practices during his own 12-year term as FBI Director, it’s hard to believe that he will conduct a fair and impartial investigation into the politically-charged assumption of “Russian interference” in the 2016 presidential election.
Mueller isn’t the one to investigate the swamp—Mueller is the swamp. He is a dirty cop who never should have been appointed Special Counsel, and he should be fired immediately.
AND BRAVO! WELL DONE, SIR, VERY WELL DONE.

PRESS RELEASE: RUSSIANS DID NOT AFFECT ELECTION OUTCOME, NO ALLEGATIONS AGAINST AMERICANS SAYS ROSENSTEIN
AS YOU READ THIS, PLEASE KEEP THIS UPPERMOST IN YOUR MINDS, REGARDING THIS INDICTMENT: MOST OF THOSE INDICTED IN THIS LATEST 'BREAKING NEWS' FROM THE DEPT. OF "JUSTICE" WERE IN AMERICA IN LATE 2013 TO THE END OF 2014, AND THEN WERE LIKELY BACK IN RUSSIA BEFORE TRUMP ANNOUNCED HIS CANDIDACY IN JUNE, 2015.
TRUMP DID NOT ANNOUNCE HE WAS RUNNING UNTIL JUNE 26, 2015!THE RUSSIANS WERE HERE OVER A YEAR AHEAD OF THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN. AND, BTW, HILLARY WON THE POPULAR VOTE. SHE WAS NOT CHEATED OUT OF ANYTHING. SHE DID WIN THE POPULAR VOTE, HILLARY, NOT TRUMP.
THE DEPARTMENT OF 'JUSTICE' (DOJ) HAS OBTAINED INDICTMENTS AGAINST 13 RUSSIAN CITIZENS (OR REASONABLE FACSIMILES?) BUT FAILED TO MENTION THAT SNOWDEN AND A LOT OF OTHERS THEY'VE 'INDICTED' WHO RESIDE IN RUSSIA WON'T BE BOARDING PLANES HEADED FOR THE U.S.
SO, NO, THEY WILL NEVER BE TRIED HERE UNLESS THE DOJ PEFORMS
THE "IN ABSENTIA" TRICK. SORRY, DOJ, THE RUSSIANS ARE NOT COMING!
AND, BTW, NO AMERICANS WERE FOUND GUILTY OF 'KNOWINGLY' CONSPIRING WITH THOSE MYSTERIOUS RUSSIANS NOR WAS THE ELECTION OUTCOME AFFECTED BY ANY OF THIS MESS.
(LISTEN CLOSELY AT ABOUT 5 MINUTES INTO THIS VIDEO:
"Dept. of 'Justice' Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein in his statement to the press, around the 5:00 minute mark in the above video, stated that there is "no allegation in this indictment that ANY American was a knowing participant in this illegal activity.
There is NO allegation in the 37-page indictment that the charged conduct altered the outcome of the 2016 election."
THERE IS NO EVIDENCE LEFT; THEY DESTROYED IT, BUT PLEASE BELIEVE US ANYWAY? WOULD WE LIE TO YOU?"Defendants and their co-conspirators deleted and destroyed data, including emails, social media accounts and other EVIDENCE of their activity."
THEN HOW DID THE DOJ "FIND" ANY EVIDENCE OR EVIDENCE ENOUGH TO INDICT SO MANY "RUSSIAN" PEOPLE?
IF EVIDENCE WAS DESTROYED, WHAT LEGAL LEG IS THE DOJ STANDING ON?
DID THEY FIND ANOTHER "EX-BRITISH SPY" TO BANG OUT SOME MORE OF THAT "EVIDENCE" LIKE HILLARY BOUGHT FROM THAT ONE ON TRUMP?
THAT WAS A WORK OF FICTION, WASN'T IT DOJ?
SO IS THIS INDICTMENT.
ADD TO THIS THE LEGAL OPINION BY JUDICIAL EXPERTS THAT MUELLER DOES NOT HAVE ANY EVIDENCE OF TRUMP 'COLLUDING' WITH RUSSIANS NOR DOES MUELLER HAVE THE LEGAL AUTHORITY TO INDICT A SITTING PRESIDENT, AND ONE WOULD HOPE THIS LUNACY IS ENDED.
Nearly two decades ago, a professor at Chapman University’s Fowler School of Law was asked by then-independent counsel Kenneth Starr to evaluate whether a federal grand jury could indict a sitting president — in that case, Bill Clinton.
He was told that yes, he could. Here's what that same man says about Mueller indicting Trump:
"In my assessment, the “case” against Trump right now amounts to a mountain of innuendo built on a foundation of loose sand. The facts so far do not come close to making an obstruction case against the president, and for now there is no evidence that he engaged in any underlying crime.
If and when Mueller comes up with something that might create an indictable case, though, he is apt to run into serious questions about the limitations of his office, questions that [Kenneth] Starr did not face."
Starr COULD have indicted Bill Clinton.
Nothing in the Constitution forbids that, but Congress and the Supreme Court (SCOTUS), in their quiet rewriting (shredding is a better word) of the Constitution, enacted 'laws' and upheld them that have now come back to haunt them.
Mueller simply can't do what Starr and those before him could have done had they chosen to.
Congress would have to pass new laws, "reinterpret" the Constitution to make Trump prosecutable.
The SCOTUS would have to backtrack and do their own "reinterpretation" of that same great old document.
PERHAPS, TO REPAY THE DOJ, PUTIN WILL SPILL THE BEANS AND SHOW PROOF TO THE WORLD AS TO WHAT REALLY HAPPENED?
I MEAN, IF WE'RE TO TRUST THE DOJ WITHOUT ANY EVIDENCE LIKE REAL COMPUTERS CONFICATED FROM REAL RUSSIANS, LET'S GIVE PUTIN ANOTHER SHOT AT HILLARY AND THE OBAMA TEAM.
THE TRULY GUILTY JUST MAY BE PICTURED ABOVE, YES? NO?
MAYBE ASSANGE WILL CRANK UP THE HEAT AGAIN FROM WIILEAKS?
AFTER ALL, IN ALL THESE YEARS, OLD JULIAN HAS NEVER ONCE BEEN PROVEN WRONG, HAS HE?
ISN'T THAT WHY THE U.S. CORNERED HIM IN JOLLY OLD ENGLAND?
HE'S GOT TOO MUCH DIRT ON TOO MANY OF "THE CAPITOL HILL GANG", ET AL?
AND LOOK WHO'S AFTER THE TRUTH...A "DIRTY COP", WHO BROUGHT IN OTHER DIRTY COPS TO HELP HIM.
THE ACCUSATIONS THAT MUELLER WAS AND STILL IS A "DIRTY COP" BEGAN IN EARNEST IN 2001.
MUELLER WAS 'TOP COP' WHEN WE SAW 9/11 UNFOLD, REMEMBER.
OUR 'INTELLIGENCE' AGENCIES FAILED ON THAT ONE, TOO, AS DID BUSHKIN #2.
THE FBI ADMITTED THEY WERE AWARE OF SAUDI NATIONALS TRAINING TO FLY AIRCRAFT WAY BEFORE 9/11, KNEW OF SAUDI INVOLEMENT IN FINANCING THAT, BUT DID...NOTHING.
BUT ONWARD HE PRESSES, BECAUSE HE'S BEEN ASSIGNED TO FIND WITCHES, AND WITCHES HE WILL FIND.
Since taking over the investigation, Mueller's team has charged four Americans once affiliated with the Trump campaign or administration, and 13 Russians and three Russian companies involved in ALLEGED U.S. election interference.
HAVE YOU READ THE 37 PAGES IN THIS INDICTMENT, THE PRESS RELEASE BY THE DOJ?
IF YOU HAVE AND READ CAREFULLY, YOU MIGHT STILL BE LAUGHING, OR RAGING.
THE DOJ 's MAGICAL INDICTMENT IS ABOUT AS MEANINGFUL AS THE "INTERNATIONAL TRIBUNALS" WHO HAVE 'INDICTED' SEVERAL OF OUR FORMER PRESIDENTS AND VICE PRESIDENTS FOR WAR CRIMES.
THEY CAN'T FORCE RUSSIA TO SEND US THE INDICTED RUSKIES, IF, BIG IF, THEY EVEN EXIST.
THE DOJ HAS CREATED A THREE-RING CIRCUS WITH THE FBI AND SOME CONGRESSMEN AND ARE SIMPLY INVITING US TO COME SEE THE CIRCUS.
DID IT ESCAPE THE DOJ THAT OLD HILLARY ACTUALLY BEAT THE ORANGE DUDE, TRUMP?
CLINTON WON THE GENERAL ELECTION; SHE GOT THE MOST POPUULAR VOTES!
LET'S REPEAT THAT: CLINTON WON THE POPULAR VOTE BY A BIT MORE THAN 2 MILLION BALLOTS.
IT WAS THAT ABOMINATION CALLED THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE THAT GAVE THE PRESIDENCY TO TRUMPKIN!
SO, HOW IS THIS PISS-POOR EXCUSE FOR "PROOF" OF ELECTION TAMPERING RELEVANT TO THE RESULTS OF THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE?
I DON'T SEE ANYTHING IN THE INDICTMENT THAT STATES THE "ELECTORS" OF THE NEFARIOUS 'COLLEGE' WERE INFLUENCED BY RUSSIANS.
THAT ALONE SHOULD END THIS BOONDOGGLE, THIS SMOKESCREEN TO MAKE THE MASSES FORGET THE ELECTION TAMPERING THE DNC AND OBAMA HIMSELF MAY HAVE GOTTEN AWAY WITH.
WHY DIDN'T WHAT ROSENSTEIN ADMITTED MAKE HEADLINES IN THE NY TIMES, WASHINGTON POST AND AT CNN?
"Dept. of 'Justice' Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein in his statement to the press, around the 5:00 minute mark in the above video, stated that there is "no allegation in this indictment that ANY American was a knowing participant in this illegal activity.
There is NO allegation in the 37-page indictment that the charged conduct altered the outcome of the 2016 election."
According to the indictment, the Internet Research Agency, a Russian troll farm, started interfering as early as 2013 in U.S. politics, extending to the 2016 presidential election.
The defendants, "posing as U.S. persons and creating false U.S. personas," operated social media groups designed to attract U.S. audiences by stealing U.S. identities and falsely claiming to be U.S. activists.
"Over time, these social media accounts became defendants' means to reach significant numbers of Americans for purposes of interfering with the U.S. political system," the indictment reads."
"SIGNIFICANT NUMBERS"? HOW MANY IS THAT?
HOW CAN THEY PROVE THAT ANY WERE REACHED?
ACTUALLY, THIS BEGAN IN LATE 2013, IF YOU READ THE INDICTMENT, RE: DEFENDANT KRYLOVA ON PAGE 8, DEFENDANT BOVDA ON PG.9, WHO WERE ALREADY HERE BY THE BEGINNING OF 2014, i.e. IN 2013, AND THE RUSKIE MADNESS WAS IN FULL SWING BY EARLY 2014, BEING "FIRMLY ESTABLISHED" BY APRIL THAT YEAR.
The following statement negates Mueller's whole investigative mandate of "collusion," where the indictment asserts, "Russians also communicated with 'UNWITTING individuals' associated with the Trump campaign and OTHER political activists to coordinate activities."
THE CLINTON , SANDERS AND STEIN SUPPORTERS.
YES, AMERICA, THE INDICTED 13 RUSSIANS WERE 'COMMUNICATING' WITH ALL GREEDY LITTLE OUT-TO-WIN-AT-ANY-COST POLITICAL PARTIES, OR SO SAYS THE DOJ.
THEY ALL TOOK THE BAIT, EVERY SINGLE 'PARTY' IN AMERICA.
The indictment also offers examples of the Russians setting up pro-Hillary Clinton rallies as well, as part of their general plan to "sow discord."
Even more astounding is that this Russian effort, according to the indictment (Page 3), started in early 2014, ONE YEAR BEFORE TRUMP WAS OFFICIALLY IN THE 'RACE', OVER A YEAR BEFORE TRUMP'S ANNOUNCEMENT ON JUNE 16, 2015.
HOW, THEN, CAN THE DOJ SAY THE RUSKIES WERE HERE TO HELP TRUMP IN 2014?
HE WASN'T YET A CANDIDATE!
WHY WOULD WE BELIEVE THE RUSSIANS WERE HERE TO HELP TRUMP?
AFTER ALL, AREN'T WE TOLD NOW THAT THE RUSSIANS PROVIDED 'INTEL' IN THAT DOCUMENT HILLARY'S TEAM BOUGHT TO SMEAR TRUMP?
WASN'T IT RUSSIANS THAT "SECRET BRITISH AGENT" COLLECTED HIS 'INTEL' FROM?
NOBODY IS MENTIONING THAT MUCH ANYMORE.
THE DNC/CLINTON CAMPAIGN BOUGHT, AS IN PAID FOR A DOCUMENT THAT CAME, IN PART, STRAIGHT FROM THE HANDS OF RUSSIANS
(Reminder: 2014 was during the whole Ukraine/Russia conflict, where the UNITED STATES MEDDLED to support the ouster of the pro-Russia, duly elected President of Ukraine.)
DARE WE IMAGINE THE ENTIRE 'RUSSIA MEDDLING IN OUR ELECTION', IF THAT CAN EVER BE PROVEN BEYOND A SHADOW OF A DOUBT, WAS PAYBACK FOR OUR RESPONSE IN THE UKRAINE?
NO, SURELY NOT!
AND HOW MANY HAVE CHOSEN TO FORGET AMERICA'S MEDDLING IN THE ISRAELI ELECTION? (SEE The U.S. Has Been Meddling In Other Countries' Elections For A Long Time ...)
(AND THIS: Obama’s Meddling in Foreign Elections: Six Examples )
IT'S ALL AN INTERNATIONAL GAME OF CHESS AND WHEN ANY PLAYER TOPS THE OTHER PLAYERS, THE ONES WHO WERE TOPPED SET UP A HOWL.
Read, but do read carefully, slowly, several times, maybe, the DOJ press release and that pathetic "indictment" for yourselves, watching for "double-speak": https://www.justice.gov/opa/pr/grand-jury-indicts-thirteen-russian-individuals-and-three-russian-companies-scheme-interfere
THERE SHOULD BE AN INDICTMENT OF WHOMEVER WROTE THIS 'PIECE OF CRAP' FICTIONAL ACCOUNT.
IT'S SO FULL OF HOLES IT BOGGLES THE LOGICAL MIND.
SURELY SOME RECENT HIGH SCHOOL DROPOUT ON AN ACID TRIP WROTE THIS THING.
AFTER OVER 6 MONTHS OF WASTED TAXPAYER MONEY AND WASTED TIME, NO INDICTMENT OF TRUMP. NOR IS THERE LIKELY TO BE.
So, Mueller is not going to bust Trump, Congress is not going to impeach Trump, Trump is, obviously, not going to go the Nixon route and go home.
What does that leave?
ONLY the "Lincoln/JFK solution"?
Neither Hillary Clinton nor Bernie will ever be in that oval office, and IF Americans were smart, NO current career/professional politicians would ever be there.
Time to CLEAN HOUSE, and Senate, and flush the big toilet we call Washington, D.C.
TIME TO REALLY PUT AMERICA FIRST, NOT POLITICAL PARTY, NOT WALL STREET'S WHIMS, JUST AMERICA AND AMERICANS' BEST INTERESTS.
(BTW, a bit related to all this: Mueller’s ‘Pit Bull’ Andrew Weissmann Busted for Withholding Evidence in Previous Case)
"Excellent point and question asked by Nick Short from Security Studies Group and Michelle Malkin Investigates' verified Twitter account.
: "From #Mueller indictment, 2 of the Russians were able to enter U.S. on travel visas which they received after applying for them through the State Dept in 2014.
From June 4, 2014 - June 26, 2014 they traveled around the US."
TRUMP DID NOT ANNOUNCE HE WAS RUNNING UNTIL JUNE, 2015!
THE RUSSIANS WERE HERE OVER A YEAR AHEAD OF THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN!
Who was head of the State Department and FBI at this time?"
The answer to that would be former Secretary of State John Kerry (2013 to 2017) and former FBI Director James Comey (2013 to 2017)."
BUT, LOOKING AT THE DATES ON THE INDICTMENTS, ALL OF THE 13 HAD ENTERED THE U.S. DURING THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION!
JOHN KERRY'S DEPT.OF STATE WELCOMED THEM, GRANTED THEIR VISAS.
WHERE WERE OUR "INTELLIGENCE" AGENCIES THEN?
HOW CONVENIENT THEY CAN TRACK DOWN THESE SPECIFIC 13 NOW, PROVIDE SUCH IN-DEPTH TINIEST DETAILS ABOUT THE RUSSIANS' METHODOLOGY, EVEN QUOTE THEIR PRIVATE EMAILS BRAGGING TO FRIENDS/FAMILY ABOUT THEIR SUCCESS, BUT COULD NOT DO SO PRIOR TO THIS WEEK, RIGHT?
I ASK YOU, WHAT RUSSIAN 'AGENT' WORTH HIS/HER SALT, KNOWING HOW CLOSELYTHE NSA MONITORS EMAIL, PHONE CALLS, ETC, WOULD SEND ANYONE ANYTHING JUST TO BRAG ON THEIR ACCOMPLISHMENT?
THAT WOULD BE WAY BEYOND DUMB.
On page 12 of the indictment, the DOJ sets forth the exact methods used, when they were used, how they were used on WHICH 'social media' to 'attract and sway' political opinion.
HOW does the DOJ now suddenly know this, but claims not to have known it while this alleged interference was going on?
WOULDN'T THEY HAVE TO HAVE THE PERSONAL COMPUTERS OF THE 'DEFENDANTS' TO PROVE, WITHOUT A DOUBT, BY THE DATA EXTRACTED FROM HARD DRIVES IN THOSE SPECIFIC COMPUTERS AND FOUND IN POSSESSION OF SAID RUSSIANS, IN ORDER TO HAVE A REAL CASE AGAINST THESE 13 PEOPLE?
COULDN'T ANY PERSON IN AMERICA PRETEND TO BE RUSSIAN AND OPEN ACCOUNTS UNDER FICTITIOUS NAMES ON ANY SOCIAL MEDIA TO LAY DOWN A FALSE TRAIL FOR THE KEYSTONE COPS AT NSA, DOJ, CIA, FBI, ETC, TO "FIND"?
WITHOUT THOSE COMPUTERS, ISN'T THIS ALL SPECULATION, A FAIRY TALE THEY HOPE TO SELL TO ENOUGH MEMBERS OF THE "LEFT WING" TO REIGNITE THE OUTCRIES AND PRODUCE MORE RIOTING IN THE STREETS?
ANYTHING TO DISTRACT FROM WHAT THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATON DID AND/OR ALLOWED TO BE DONE.
ANYTHING TO SAVE CLINTON FROM BEING CHARGED.
AFTER ALL, HER HUSBAND WAS NEVER CHARGED FOR LYING UNDER OATH DURING THE CONGRESSIONAL INVESTIGATION INTO HIS LEWINSKY PROBLEM.
HOW did they discover names of 13 SPECIFIC Russians only now, after OVER 4 YEARS from the time it all began "on social media" when the DOJ itself makes clear that everything related to the Russian team was deleted/destroyed and that those Russians were so good at fooling everyone here that they even conned banks into opening accounts?
If they're THAT good at it, how could they be dumb enough to leave a VERY HANDY trail right to their doors in Russia?
MORE IMPORTANTLY, this entire fiasco ASSUMES that American voters, dedicated as they are to each cursed political party, could be swayed, en masse, to change their votes, to flip 180 degrees, to let social media sites dictate to them how to vote.
Does the DOJ REALLY think Americans are that naïve, that easily swayed, that DUMB?
Obviously so, and they also think we're dumb enough to swallow this newest hat trick.
Who ARE these 13 Russians, do they REALLY EXIST?
How do we know the DOJ isn't making all this up as they go along?
MIGHT these "Russians" have REALLY been NSA, CIA, FBI, or even DOJ or DNC employees PRETENDING to be Russians?
COULDN'T THIS ALL BE A RUSE TO KEEP OBAMA, KERRY, HILLARY, OTHERS IN THE DOJ AND FBI OUT OF JAIL?
COULD ANY OF THOSE 'PLAYERS' ACTUALLY HAVE DONE THIS THEMSELVES, OR ASSIGNED THAT TASK TO 'STAFF'?
IF THIS WAS ORCHESTRATED BY THE OBAMA TEAM TO HELP CLINTON WIN, WHAT BETTER WAY TO COVER THAT TRAIL THAN BY MEANS OF USING THE DOJ TO SUDDENLY FIND THESE MYTHICAL RUSSIANS AND SAVE THE DAY FOR TEAMS OBAMA/CLINTON?
What did we miss when those 'SUPER-SECURE' NSA computers were ALLEGEDLY 'hacked' by, yes, Russians again, or what was in those thousands of "deleted/lost" Clinton/Podesta/Weiner emails that some have suggested RUSSIANS handed over to Wikileaks?
What was really on the computer allegedly "stolen" out of that FBI agent's SUV?
How is it that the emails, etc, between the TWO FBI 'lovers' were ALL "lost" one day, but miraculously were 'rediscovered' on devices taken directly from those 2 lovers days later?
Did those few days give 'someone' time to reshuffle that deck and remove more incriminating emails?
When such things begin "disappearing", my first thoughts are "WHY did they 'disappear and WHAT are they covering up THIS time?"
On page 13, it is alleged that for 4 days, JUST 4 DAYS, ONE LONE 'Russian' communicated with an unnamed Texas political 'activist' and learned from that ONE person that they should "concentrate their efforts on purple states like Colorado, Virginia and Florida".
THE KEYSTONE COPS OF THE DOJ REALLY SELL RUSSIAN INTELLIGENCE SHORT ON THIS, DON'T THEY?
THEY WANT US TO BELIEVE THAT REAL RUSSIAN AGENTS WOULD NOT BE WELL AWARE OF SUCH A MUNDANE PIECE OF INFORMATION AS WHICH STATES COULD COST HILLARY OR TRUMP THE ELECTION?
THAT WAS SPLASHED ALL OVER OUR NATIONAL MEDIA FOR MONTHS!
WHAT AMERICAN WOULD BELIEVE THAT REAL RUSSIAN INTELLIGENCE AGENTS WOULD NEED TO "LOCATE" ONE PERSON IN ALL AMERICA, IN TEXAS, WHO COULD HAND THEM THE "HOLY GRAIL" THAT WOULD SWAY AMERICAN VOTERS BY TELLING THEM WHAT MOST OF THE WORLD ALREADY KNOWS, THAT SOME STATES ARE MORE CRUCIAL FOR A CANDIDATE TO WIN THAN OTHERS?
"PURPLE STATES" HAVE BEEN CALLED THAT FOR A LONG TIME BEFORE 2016.
NOT ONLY THAT, BUT IT APPEARS THAT THE DOJ BELIEVES THAT AMERICANS SIGN INTO FACEBOOK, TWITTER AND INSTAGRAM TO VISIT 'POLITICAL ACTIVISTS' PAGES AND OBTAIN THEIR INSTRUCTIONS ON HOW TO THINK CORRECTLY AND VOTE WITH THE BLESSINGS OF SAID 'ACTIVISTS'.
THE DOJ IS CRAZY, OBVIOUSLY.
ANY CASUAL FIRST-TIME VISITOR TO THE SOCIAL MEDIA SITES MENTIONED BY THE DOJ COULD REVEAL THE TRUTH.
AMERICANS "SHARE" FROM THEIR "HOME PAGES" ON FACEBOOK, WHICH IS FULL OF SO MUCH CRAP THAT FEW SIFT THROUGH IT ALL JUST TO BE PROPERLY "POLITICALLY INFORMED".
SOCIAL MEDIA IS FOR SOCIALIZING, POSTING SELFIES, MAYBE EVEN "LOOKING FOR LOVE", TALKING ABOUT THE BIG GAME (FOOTBALL, BASKETBALL, BASEBALL), PROMOTING ONESELF OR ONE'S BUSINESS, SO IMAGINE HOW FEW TAKE SOCIAL MEDIA SERIOUSLY.
LUDICROUS AND STUPID ARE NOW REDEFINED BY THE DOJ.
THEY ARE BLATANTLY OUT OF TOUCH WITH THE REALITY OF SOCIAL MEDIA.
THE REST OF THIS 'INDICTMENT' SHOULD BE AN EVEN BIGGER EMBARRASSMENT TO THE DOJ.
PAGE 18 ACTUALLY QUOTES AN INSTAGRAM POST FROM A 'PERSONA' KNOWN AS "BLACKTIVIST" TELLING ANYONE WHO CARED TO READ IT TO VOTE FOR JILL STEIN, FOR PEACE.
IT'S A SAD LITTLE POST THAT WOULD AFFECT ALMOST NO ONE IN THE TWO MAJOR PARTIES.
WHO WOULD CHANGE THEIR VOTE BASED ON SUCH CHILDISH DRIVEL?
THE INDICTMENT CITES NUMEROUS 'ADS' PURCHASED BY THE RUSSIANS, AS IF THOSE WHO ARE USING SOCIAL MEDIA PAY ATTENTION TO ADS?
HOW MANY READING THIS GO ON SOCIAL MEDIA AND CLICK ON ADS, OR CONSIDER THEM CHOCK-FULL OF PERTINENT, RELIABLE INFORMATION, RELY ON THOSE TO FORMULATE THEIR POLITICAL VIEWPOINT, DECIDE HOW THEY'LL VOTE?
ANYONE YOU KNOW?
CAN THE DOJ PRODUCE/PROVE THE NUMBER OF "HITS" ON ALL THOSE ADS, THOSE TWITER POSTS?
THERE ARE UNDER 30,000 AMERICANS ON TWITTER AND SOME OF THOSE ACCOUNTS BELONG TO THE SAME PERSON, MULTIPLE ACCOUNTS.
HOW SIMPLE WOULD IT BE FOR GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEES TO CLICK ON THOSE ADS TO UP THE HIT COUNT?
I'D WAGER THEY CAN'T, OR WON'T BE PRODUCING INCONTROVERTIBLE, HARD EVIDENCE IN ANY COURT TO SUPPORT THEIR SILLY CLAIMS.
THE TOTALS WOULD BE FAR TOO FEW TO "STEAL AN ELECTION" FROM OLD HILLARY.
PAGE 19 STATES THAT THESE CLEVER RUSSIANS WERE ABLE TO CREATE BANK ACCOUNTS AND GET CREDIT CARDS USING ALIASES, PRETENDING TO BE AMERICAN CITIZENS?
WOW! WHERE DO WE GO TO SIGN UP FOR THOSE?
WHAT BANKS AND CREDIT CARD COMPANIES ARE DUMB ENOUGH OR TRUSTING ENOUGH NOT TO CHECK OUT APPLICATIONS THOROUGHLY?
THE 37-PAGE DOJ FAIRY TALE IS MORE POORLY WRITTEN THAN THE WORST 'DETECTIVE STORY' I HAVE EVER SAT AND LAUGHED AT OR GRIMACED TO SEE IN PRINT.
THE DOJ REALLY NEEDS BETTER WRITERS, AND PEOPLE MORE IN TOUCH WITH THE REALITY OF "SOCIAL MEDIA" AND HOW IT INFLUENCES ANYONE.
PAGE 21 IS A REAL DOOZY.
MY, MY, MY, WHAT A REACH!
WHAT A JOKE!
THE RUSSIANS, WE ARE ASKED TO BELIEVE, "USED" ALREADY ESTABLISHED, REAL AMERICAN GROUPS AND CREATED "BEING PATRIOTIC" ON FACEBOOK, AND WRANGLED THEIR WAY INTO A TWITTER ACCOUNT CALLED @MARCH_FOR_TRUMP', AND UNNAMED "OTHER ACCOUNTS" TO "ORGANIZE PRO-TRUMP RALLIES".
DOJ HAS THE FINEST DETAILS OF THIS, NOW, SUDDENLY, EVEN STATING THAT THE RUSKIES PAID FOR SIGNS TO BE MADE FOR THE MARCH FOR TRUMP RALLY.
OH, THE HORROR, RIGHT?
I FELL OFF MY CHAIR LAUGHING AT THAT ONE; RUSSIAN AGENTS TELLING THE RALLY ORGANIZERS THEY NEED SIGNS AND A MEGAPHONE AND PAYING FOR THEM, AND PAYING "UNNAMED" PEOPLE TO ATTEND THE RALLY?
THE DOJ THEN TURNED TO THE RUSKIES HELPING WITH A RALLY CALLED "FLORIDA GOES TRUMP", WHICH ALSO GARNERED WAY FEWER ATTENDEES THAN WAS NEEDED TO CHANGE THE FINAL VOTE IN FLORIDA IN FAVOR OF TRUMP.
ONE CAN LOOK AT ANY LOCAL MEDIA REPORTS OF THOSE 'RALLIES' TO SEE HOW FEW ATTENDED.
WE'RE TOLD ON PAGE 23 AND ASKED TO BELIEVE THAT THESE CRAFTY RUSKIES EVEN PAID ONE GUY TO BUILD A CAGE ON A FLATBED TRUCK AND ANOTHER TO DRESS AS HILLARY IN PRISON GARB?
BAAA HAAA HAAA! THAT'S RICH!
HOW MANY OTHERS WHO WERE NEVER CONTACTED BY THE RUSSIANS AND NEVER PAID A DIME DID THE SAME THING WAY BEFORE THE ELECTIONS, ESPECIALLY WHILE BENGHAZI WAS THE MAIN TOPIC?
HOW MANY MILLIONS OF AMERICANS THOUGHT THAT BOTH OBAMA AND HILLARY SHOULD HAVE BEEN INDICTED FOR THAT DISASTER, HMMM?
MAYBE IT WAS BENGHAZI THAT CHANGED SOME MINDS ABOUT HILLARY?
WHAT NOW, INDICT A DOZEN LIBYANS BECAUSE LIBYANS HATED HILLARY?
THOSE RALLIES THEN, FAILURES THAT THEY WERE, AND A FEW ADS , POSTS TO SOCIAL MEDIA AND EMAILS ARE WHAT SWAYED THE 2016 ELECTION, ROBBED HILLARY OF THE PRESIDENCY?
NOT A CHANCE!
NO LOGICAL WAY DID THAT HAPPEN.
DO THE MATH, DOJ, AND SEE HOW BADLY YOU FAILED ON THIS ONE.
AND A REMINDER: HILLARY CLINTON WON THE ELECTION IF WE'D GONE BY POPULAR VOTE. SHE GOT MORE VOTES THAN TRUMP, BUT NO ONE IS INVESTIGATING THAT, ARE THEY?
NO ONE IN MAINSTREAM MEDIA HAS SEEN FIT TO PUBLISH IN BOLD HEADLINES:
"RUSSIA DIDN'T HELP DEFEAT HILLARY! SHE WON THE POPULAR VOTE!"
PAGE 24 ABSOLUTELY HANGS THE DOJ's OWN MYTHICAL 'EVIDENCE' OF ALL THIS BY STATING THAT... "Defendants and their co-conspirators deleted and destroyed data, including emails, social media accounts and other EVIDENCE of their activity."
THEN HOW THE HELL DID YOU CLOWNS GET THOSE EMAILS, ALL THIS EVIDENCE IF THEY DESTROYED IT?
TIME MACHINE, BLACK MAGIC, SEANCES, WHAT?
YOU'D HAVE TO HAVE THEIR COMPUTERS TO RETRIEVE THAT "DELETED/DESTROYED" EVIDENCE, SHOW THEM OFF IN COURT AND YOU DO NOT HAVE THOSE.
WOULD RUSSIAN 'SPIES' BE DUMB ENOUGH TO LEAVE THOSE COMPUTERS HERE IN THE U.S.?
WOULD THEY RISK BOARDING A PLANE KNOWING THAT HOMELAND 'SECURITY' COULD SNATCH THOSE COMPUTERS, CELL PHONES, ANY DEVICES AND NEVER GIVE THEM BACK?
DID YOU FORGET THAT PART, DOJ, YOU BUMBLING, LYING CLOWNS?
IT'S STATED ON PAGE 24 THAT FACEBOOK WAS WORKING WITH THE 'SPECIAL COUNSEL'S OFFICE OF THE U.S. DOJ' TO TRACK DOWN THE HEINOUS (IMAGINARY?) RUSKIES.
IS ZUCKERBERG A DEMOCRAT?
WHAT ABOUT FACEBOOK BEING ACCUSED BY MAYBE MILLIONS OF BEING ANTI-TRUMP?
SHOULD WE BE CONCERNED ABOUT FACEBOOK BIAS?
ALSO ON PAGE 24 WE'RE HANDED THE CHILDISH FANTASY THAT ONE OF THESE DEVIOUS RUSSIAN AGENTS WROTE HOME BOASTING OF HER SUCCESS HERE, STATING HOW DUPED AMERICANS WERE BY HER SOCIAL MEDIA POSTS, EVEN SAYING SHE AND COLLEAGUES HAD BEEN 'BUSTED'???
THAT WOULD BE DUMB ON A WHOLE NEW LEVEL, YES?
BUT LOOK AT PAGE 25!
ALL OF A SUDDEN, THOSE RUSKIES ARE SUPPORTING HILLARY WITH A RALLY AND ASKING AMERICANS TO SAVE AMERICAN MUSLIMS WHILE QUOTING HILLARY AS SAYING THAT SHARIA LAW WILL BE GOOD FOR AMERICA?
[NO, SHE DIDN'T, BUT SOME OF HER SUPPORTERS DID: Clueless Hillary Supporters Say They Support Sharia Law]
WHAT BONE-DEEP IMBECILE WOULD FALL FOR THAT ONE?
IT WOULD BE POLITICAL SUICIDE FOR OLD CLINTON TO MAKE SUCH A STATEMENT.
IT WOULD ALSO TAKE SOMEONE WITHOUT SYNAPSES IN THEIR BRAINS TO BUY THIS QUOTE AS ANYTHING BUT GARBAGE.
MOST AMERICANS ARE NOT AS DUMB AS YOU IMAGINE, DOJ!
SUCH A THING WOULD HAVE ONLY ANGERED AND REALLY RALLIED HILLARY LOVERS.
FACE IT, DOJ, WORSE "DIRTY TRICKS" HAVE BEEN PLAYED BY 'LEGITIMATE ENTITIES', REAL AMERICANS FOR OVER 200 YEARS HERE IN THE USA.
DIRTY TRICKS DURING ELECTIONS BY EACH SIDE ARE EXPECTED.
IT HAPPENED IN THE 1800's, IT HAPPENED IN THE 1900s, AND IT WILL FOREVER BE THE SAME.
IT'S CALLED CAMPAIGN SMEARS AND MUD-SLINGING, WHEREIN DEVOTEES OF EACH PARTY TRY THEIR BEST TO MAKE THE OTHER SIDE LOOK LIKE DEMONIACS AND MONSTERS.
NOTHING NEW HERE, DOJ, FAIL, FAIL, FAIL!
ON PAGE 26, ITEM #70 OF THE COMICAL INDICTMENT, IF ANYONE READS THAT AND DOESN'T SEE IMMEDIATELY THAT IT'S A FARCE, THEN OUR EDUCATIONAL SYSTEM IS INDEED A MISERABLE FAILURE AND THERE ARE NO DISCERNING AMERICANS WHO CAN SPOT A SPOOF.
LOOK AT THE LANGUAGE!
HIGH SCHOOL, AT BEST!
I ALMOST PITY YOU.
HOWEVER, IF INDEED, AS STATED ON PAGE 28, A FEW OVER 8,000 RESPONDED TO THIS CALL TO RALLY , TELL US HOW THAT CHANGED THE ELECTION FOR HILLARY, OR TRUMP?
PSSST, PEOPLE ATTENDING RALLIES DOES NOT GUARANTEE ANYONE ATTENDING WILL GO VOTE!
LOOK HOW FEW IN AMERICA EVER GO VOTE.
VOTER TURNOUT HIT A 20-YEAR LOW IN 2016 WITH BARELY HALF OF QUALIFIED VOTERS CASTING BALLOTS, BUT...
Only 9% of America Chose Trump and Clinton as the Nominees ...
PAGES 30 THROUGH 35 WHINE ABOUT HOW THE BANKS AND CREDIT CARD COMPANIES WERE DUPED, DEFRAUDED.
HOW ABOUT THEY CHANGE THAT TO "WHY DIDN'T THOSE BANKS AND CARD COMPANIES MORE THOROUGHLY AND DILIGENTLY CHECK OUT THE PEOPLE APPLYING FOR BOTH?"
WHERE WAS THEIR SECURITY, THEIR RULES FOR OPENING ACCOUNTS?
DOES THIS TELL US NOT TO TRUST AMERICAN FINANCIAL INSTITUTIONS?
YES, YES IT DOES.
IF ANYBODY CAN JUST APPLY FOR AND GET A BANK ACCOUNT OR CREDIT CARD IN AMERICA WITHOUT THOSE 'INSTITUTIONS' DOUBLE- OR TRIPLE-CHECKING PROOF OF IDENTITY, LOOKING FOR IDENTITY THEFT, WE ARE IN BIG TROUBLE.
TIF THE BANKS, ETC, DID SO, THEN THE BANKS AND CARD COMPANIES SHOULD SUE THE DOJ FOR DEFAMATION, OR MAYBE JUST FOR POINTING OUT TO ALLOF US WHAT MISERABLE SECURITY FAILURES THEY ARE?
IF WHAT THE DOJ ALLEGES, IF IT'S AS EASY AS THAT TO FOOL BANKS AND CREDIT CARD COMPANIES, MAYBE WE SHOULD GO BACK TO BURYING OUR MONEY IN MASON JARS IN OUR BACK YARDS.
SINCE THE DOJ WAS KIND ENOUGH TO STATE THAT STEIN, SANDERS AND CLINTON SUPPORTERS ALSO 'FELL FOR THE RUSE OF THE RUSSIANS', WHEN MIGHT WE EXPECT MUELLER AND OTHER WITCH-HUNTERS TO INDICT SOME FROM THE HILLARY TEAM, SOME SANDERS PEOPLE OR THE GULLIBLE IN STEIN'S CREW?
IF THOSE WERE DUPED 'UNKNOWINGLY', MAYBE THE SAME CAN BE SAID OF THE TRUMP GANG?
WHEN WILL HILLARY BE INDICTED FOR THE URANIUM 1 DEAL WITH RUSSIA?
OR BECAUSE SHE BOUGHT A PARTIALLY RUSSIAN-PREPARED DOCUMENT WITH WHICH SHE HOPED TO HANG TRUMP?
THAT THE FBI MAY HAVE USED WHAT RUSSIANS TOLD THAT BRIT "SPY" TO OBTAIN FISA COURT WARRANTS FOR WIRETAPPING TRUMP TOWER, ETC, SHOULD HAVE NEGATED THIS ENTIRE MUELLER WITCH HUNT.
WE TAXPAYERS WOULDN'T BE OUT BILLIONS ON A POINTLESS "INVESTIGATION".
HAD HILLARY SIMPLY HAVE GRACIOUSLY CEDED DEFEAT AND MOVED ON IN HER LIFE, HAD HER SUPPORTERS TAKEN THE ADVICE SO MANY GAVE TRUMP SUPPORTERS WHEN THEY THOUGHT HILLARY WAS A SHOO-IN AS PREZ, TO JUST ACCEPT THE RESULTS AND MOVE ON, WE WOULDN'T BE WHERE WE ARE TODAY WITH CRAZY PEOPLE ALL ACROSS AMERICA STILL TRYING TO FIND A WAY TO MAKE HILLARY QUEEN.
AND MAYBE THE DOJ WOULD BE PREPARING A NEW SET OF INDICTMENTS FOR TEAM HILLARY, INCLUDING THEIR WOULD-BE QUEEN?
THE LOSERS CAN HOPE THAT THE DOJ WILL ASSIGN THE SAME HIGH SCHOOL DROPOUT THE TASK OF PREPARING THOSE INDICTMENTS.
(I DON'T THINK WE'LL SEE SUCH INDICTMENTS IN MY LIFETIME.)
IF ANYONE CAN TOP THE FAILURE OF THIS INDICTMENT TO CONTAIN ABSOLUTE PROVABLE FACTS OR TOP IT FOR DRIVEL, I'LL BE ALMOST IMPRESSED.
GOOD LUCK, KID.
AS FOR THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT, THEY DON'T WANT JUSTICE, THEY WANT TRUMP OUT, AS DOES THE FBI.
THE DOJ MADE A FATAL ERROR ON THIS ONE.
THEY IMAGINED THAT AMERICANS ARE DUMBER THAN DIRT.
YOU CAN "FOOL ALL OF THE PEOPLE SOME OF THE TIME AND SOME OF THE PEOPLE ALL OF THE TIME", BUT THE DOJ HAS PERHAPS LEARNED THEY ARE NOT TRYING TO FOOL THE BRAIN-DEAD?
WE SEE THROUGH THIS SCHEME.
AND AN AWAKENING AMERICA IS ABOUT TO SEE MORE CLEARLY THAN EVER BEFORE.

I HAVE TRIED FOR DAYS TO POST THIS AND WILL KEEP TRYING UNTIL IT ALL POSTS OR THEY HAUL MY OLD BODY OUT OF THIS CABIN.
I ASK YOU TO FORGIVE HOW IT POSTS WHENEVER IT DOES.
I AM WEARY, IT HAS BEEN A HARD FEW DAYS HERE.

JUST READ THE WORDS OF THOSE STILL HOPING SOMEONE IN THE GLOBAL COMMUNITY CAN STOP THIS, CAN RESCUE THEM, THEIR CHILDREN, SAVE THEIR WORLD.
IF THIS IS MY FINAL POST, SO BE IT, BUT REMEMBER THESE PEOPLE AND SPREAD THEIR WORDS AND DO WHATEVER YOU CAN TO MAKE IT ALL GO AWAY, TO PRESERVE WHAT CAN BE PRESERVED.
FUKUSHIMA IS REAL, IT'S AN ONGOING DISASTER, THE PEOPLE THERE NEED THE WORLD TO KNOW THE TRUTH SO MAYBE THIS WILL NEVER HAPPEN TO OTHERS.
END THE LUNACY OF NUCLEAR "ENERGY", CITIZENS OF EARTH.

Radiation leaks at Fukushima pose a global threat
4th Feb 2018
LETHAL levels of radiation have been detected at Japan's Fukushima nuclear power plant, seven years after its destruction by an earthquake and tsunami.
The Tokyo Electric Power Company (Tepco), which is responsible for the plant clean-up, made the discovery in a reactor containment vessel last month.
The energy firm found eight sieverts per hour of radiation, and 42 units were also detected outside its foundations.
A sievert is defined by the International Commission on Radiological Protection as the probability of cancer induction and genetic damage from exposure to a dose of radiation.
One sievert is thought to carry a 5.5 per cent chance of eventually developing cancer.
Experts told Japanese state broadcaster NHK World exposure to that volume of radiation for just an hour could kill, and another warned the leaks could lead to a "global" catastrophe if not tackled properly.
It came as Tepco said the problem of contaminated water - pooled around the plant's three reactors - seeping into the ground had caused a major headache in its efforts to decommission the plant.
Tepco has admitted it could be 2020 before the contamination issue is resolved. Only then can it move onto the second stage of removing nuclear debris at the site, including the damaged reactors.
Energy and Climate Intelligence Unit director Richard Black said the high levels of radiation found in and around the reactor last month were "expected" and unlikely to pose a danger.
"Although the radiation levels identified are high, a threat to human health is very unlikely because, apart from workers at the site, no one goes there," he said.
"The high readings from fuel debris would be expected - the higher reading from the foundations, if confirmed, would be more of a concern as the cause is at present unclear. But as officials indicate, it might not be a genuine reading anyway.
"What this does demonstrate is that, seven years after the disaster, cleaning up the Fukushima site remains a massive challenge - and one that we're going to be reading about for decades, never mind years."
But Mycle Schneider, an independent energy consultant and lead author of the World Nuclear Industry Status Report, says that Tepco "hasn't a clue what it is doing" in its job to decommission the plant.
He added the contaminated water leaking at the site could end up in the ocean if the ongoing treatment project failed, causing a "global" disaster, he told The Independent.
"Finding high readings in the reactor is normal, it's where the molten fuel is, it would be bizarre if it wasn't," he said.
"I find it symptomatic of the past seven years, in that they don't know what they're doing, Tepco, these energy companies haven't a clue what they're doing, so to me it's been going wrong from the beginning. It's a disaster of unseen proportions."
Mr Schneider said the radiation leaks could have global consequences.
"This is an area of the planet that gets hit by tornadoes and all kinds of heavy weather patterns, which is a problem," he said.
"When you have waste stored above ground in inappropriate ways, it can get washed out and you can get contamination all over the place ... if it contaminates the ocean, there is no local contamination - the ocean is global, so anything that goes into the ocean goes to everyone."
He added: "It needs to be clear that this problem is not gone, this is not just a local problem. It's a very major thing."
The Independent contacted Tepco for comment, but the energy giant had not responded at the time of publication.
Lethal radiation amounts still detected at crippled Fukushima plant 7yrs after disaster
An inspection of the Fukushima nuclear plant has detected extremely high amounts of radiation, says operator TEPCO. Just an hour of exposure would be lethal. A remote-controlled inspection detected 42 Sieverts (Sv) per hour of radiation outside the foundations of the crippled Unit 2 of the plant,

FUKUSHIMA NCLEAR WASTE GROWS BIGGER EVERY DAY.
AND WITH MORE WASTE, THERE WILL BE MORE AND MORE RADIATION.
Adopting a return to normal policy, the Japanese government undertook an unprecedented decontamination program for areas of Fukushima contaminated by the triple reactor meltdown in March 2011. Fukushima prefecture is 70 percent mountainous forest which has not and cannot be decontaminated, with decontamination efforts focussed along roads and in towns, farmland and in narrow areas around peoples houses. The result has been that the Japanese authorities have produced a nuclear waste crisis, with over 7 million tons of waste located in 147,000 locations (as of August 2017). The Japanese government is determined to force people back to their homes despite the on-going radiation risks and the vast volumes of nuclear waste.
WE'VE BEEN WARNED BY THOSE WHO ARE THERE SINCE 2011, BUT MANSTREAM MEDIA KEEPS SWEEPING THEIR CONCERNS AND THE HONEST FACTS UNDER THE RUG.

AS ONE PERSON COMMENTED ON THE DIANUKE WEBSITE:
"The conventional medical-dental industries and the nuclear-military industries (=the radiation cartel) have been, for well over half a century , perpetually lying about, and minimizing, the true toxicity of ionizing radiation (e.g resorting to false sneaky comparisons between radiation exposure from sunlight or an airplane flight to a dental or medical x-ray or the exposure to nuclear fallout, etc. to deliberately deceive the unwitting public) to avoid culpability for the huge number of deaths and injuries that they're responsible for (discussed and well referenced in the book "The Mammogram Myth" by Rolf Hefti).
The distortions and disinformation about the alleged safety of (low dose) radiation or the purported lack of much harm to people, whether from medical x-rays or fallout from disaster sites such as Chernobyl or Fukushima, continues to this day. The real danger and damage caused by Chernobyl and Fukushima are much higher than the officialdom wants the public to believe."
HOW MANY WHO ARE RIGHT THERE IN THE CENTER OF THIS HAVE PLEADED WITH US FOR YEARS TO HELP THEM? HOW MANY PARENTS, JAPANESE PHYSICIANS, SCIENTISTS, JOURNALISTS, FARMERS, PEOPLE WHO LOVE THEIR COUNTRY, AND EVEN EX-PRIME MINISTERS, THREE OF THEM, HAVE TRIED TO MAKE IT CLEAR TO THE WORLD THAT THIS IS A NIGHTMARE WITH NO ENDING, AN ONGOING NUCLEAR DIASTER THAT WRAPS AROUND THE GLOBE?
BUT ABE, TEPCO, THE NUCLEAR 'ENERGY' GOONS ALL OVER THE WORLD HAVE MANAGED TO CONTROL THE PRESS, KEEP THE FACTS FROM BEING KNOWN, CALM THE MASSES, AND THEY CONTINUE TO SELL THE LIE THAT FUKUSHIMA IS FINE.
"COME, WORLD, COME TO THE SHINZO ABE OLYMPICS, BROUGHT TO YOU BY THE EXTINCTION EVENT KNOWN AS FUKUSHIMA'S DAI'ICHI NUCLEAR POWER PLANT. EAT THE TOXIC FOOOD, DRINK THE TOXIC WATER, BREATHE THE TOXIC AIR AND GO HOME AND WAIT FOR YOUR CANCERS TO DEVELOP."
BELOW, HERE, OTHERS WHO ARE STRUGGLING THERE IN JAPAN TODAY TRY AGAIN TO TELL US WHAT'S REALLY HAPPENING.
SOME OF THIS IS LENGTHY, SOME IS A BIT TECHNICAL, BUT READ WHAT THEY SAID, PLEASE, IF ONLY TO ACKNOWLEDGE THEY TRIED TO WARN US.
Tokyo Not Fit For Human Habitation - YouTube
A MOTHER IN TOKYO PLEADS FOR HELP
Published on Jan 29, 2018
"I am standing here to tell you that the Fukushima nuclear catastrophe is not over. I evacuated to Kansai three years after the Fukushima nuclear power plant accident. Where do you think I evacuated from? I evacuated from Tokyo. Do you know that Tokyo has serious radioactive contamination?? Tens of millions of people in East Japan live with radioactive contamination now.
My daughter was 5 years old at the time of the accident She was a cheerful and active girl. But after one year since the accident, her health conditions became bad and she was troubled by strange symptoms.
She told me, "Mommy, I feel so bad, I have no power, My hands hurt, my legs hurt, my body hurts."
In fact, my daughter became so sick that she could not live a normal life at all.
At that time I met a doctor who was working with the issue of radiation exposure in the metropolitan area. He said, if sick children are moved to the west away from contaminated eastern Japan, some of them might recover health.
According to his examinations after the accident, the number of white blood cells of children living in the metropolitan area was decreasing. And he added that neutrophils among white blood cells were particularly badly decreasing. And as we found out later, our two children also had the same condition.
Today, the doctor is saying that for every ten children in Tokyo, nine of them have below standard numbers of neutrophils.
When I consulted the doctor about my daughter, he clearly stated that she was affected by the radiation exposure.
And he gave me advice to move my daughter.
In any case, I tried to move my sick daughter out of Tokyo.
Whenever we stayed in a place where there was no radioactive contamination, she became very well. But when we returned to Tokyo, she became sick again. We did not have the option to stay in Tokyo, we just fled from Tokyo and came here.
Living in East Japan means living with many radioactive materials, and it is not a place where people can live in good health.
So, as evacuees from eastern Japan, we are calling for evacuation to West Japan.
Our existence here is not broadcasted on the radio nor published in newspapers. So, I am telling you about it now.
After the accident, we were told that radiation was not a problem and health damages would not occur. But it was not true.
Many of us have evacuated from East to West due to various health problems. Many people are getting sick today in East Japan. People are dying without noticing that it is due to radiation. Many Japanese can not face this nuclear catastrophe.
Now my daughter is 12 years old. She's healthy and enjoys everyday life. She has good friends and says she wants to continue living here forever.
My daughter wrote this , It says she wants to stay here with her friends forever.
She is very afraid that nuclear power plants now get restarted and may have another accident. If that happens, she will have to move away from here again. If another nuclear accident happens, she knows that she can not live in this country anymore.
And accidents are not the only ones that threaten her. This is a basic issue but after the accident, our government has not confined radioactive materials to one place.
On the contrary, our government has a policy of diluting toxic radioactive waste by mixing it with water, cement or other materials, and making it look harmless.
And the Japanese government now allows incineration of highly contaminated nuclear waste of up to 8000 Bq/kg, 80 times as high as before the Fukushima accident. It's all to reduce the enormous amount of nuclear waste. But as conscientious scientists say, we should never burn radioactive materials. It should never have been allowed.
We don’t seem to be able to stop this crazy, irresponsible way of our government.
I hope that my daughter can live in her beloved country where she was born and raised. Please try to know what is going on in Japan now.
We are telling the world that the nuclear disaster is far from being over."
In addition Dr Shigeru Mita closed his medical practice in Tokyo in 2014 and left the city, declaring it "not fit for human habitation" when he found that all his child patients of 10 years old and under had reduced neutrophils and other illnesses due to "chronic internal exposure to low dose ionising radiation":
A JAPANESE CITIZEN AND SCIENTIST SHOWS US THE TRUTH
January 31, 2018
An appeal from Etsuji Watanabe, member of the Japanese anti-radiation citizen-scientist group ACSIR (Association for Citizens and Scientists Concerned about Internal Radiation Exposures)
Yuko Kato: Evacuee from Fukushima, member of the Kansai plaintiff group for compensation against TEPCO and government.
Ruiwen Song: Taiwanese freelance journalist
The Japanese government has created foreign language websites which provide the information about radiology in general and the radiological situation in Fukushima. Journalists around the world, our friends and acquaintances living abroad are continually asking us whether the information that these Japanese central and local government websites present to the international community is correct or not. The following is our answer.
The stories uploaded on these websites give people the impression that worrying about radiation is unnecessary. As for this impression, has Fukushima now really become a safe place to live or visit?
First of all, Japanese anti-nuclear activists and evacuees from contaminated areas in Fukushima and Kanto, have been warning people all over the world NEVER to trust what the Japanese government is saying about both radiology in general and the specific radiological health effects caused by the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power plant disaster (hereafter Fukushima accident) following the Great East Japan Earthquake and Tsunami on March 11th, 2011.
Prime-minister Shinzo Abe and the Japanese government as a whole including Fukushima prefectural government have repeatedly declared that "with regard to health-related problems (of the Fukushima accident), I (Abe) will state in the most emphatic and unequivocal terms that there have been no problems until now, nor are there any at present, nor will there be in the future." (Abe’s statement at a news conference). See the Japanese government website below.
This claim is completely fabricated and false. In making these claims, the Japanese government is blatantly ignoring the vast number of studies in radiological sciences and epidemiology that have been accumulating historically. By engaging in this behavior, the Japanese government has been systematically deceiving the public, both nationally and internationally.
Just think of the amount of radioactivity released during the Fukushima accident. As you know, one of the standards used to assess the extent of radioactive releases and longtime human health effects is the levels of cesium 137 (Cs137) released into the environment. Based on the Japanese government data (which is an underestimate), the Fukushima accident released 168 times the Cs137 discharged by the atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima. This amount is almost the equivalent to the total atmospheric nuclear explosions conducted by the United States on the Nevada test ground. The Nevada desert is not designated as a residential area, but the Japanese government has recommended evacuated residents return to live in areas with radiation levels of up to 20 mSv/year. By removing economic support for evacuees, the Japanese government has forced many people who had evacuated from these areas to return.
We estimate that in the Fukushima accident approximately 400-600 times the Cs137 were released into the atmosphere by the atomic bomb blast in Hiroshima. Roughly 20% of the Cs137, or 80-120 Hiroshima-equivalents, were deposited on Japan. Of this, the decontamination efforts have only been able to retrieve five Hiroshima-equivalents. The waste from decontamination efforts is typically stored all over Fukushima mostly in mountainous heaps of large plastic bags. This means that 75-115 Hiroshima-equivalents of Cs137 still remain in Fukushima, surrounding prefectures, and all over Japan.
In addition, the Japanese government is now planning to reuse the retrieved contaminated soil under 8000Bq/kg in public works projects all over Japan. This self-destructive program has now been partially started without any announcements as to where the contaminated soil are and will be reused, under the pretext of "avoiding damage caused by harmful rumors". This project is tantamount to scattering lethal fallout of Cs137 equivalent to about 5 times that of Hiroshima bomb all over Japan. The Japanese government is literally behaving like a nuclear terrorist.
Do you really imagine that Fukushima prefecture and surrounding areas, contaminated as they are to levels similar to the Nevada test site, is really a safe place for people to permanently live, or for foreign tourists to visit and go sightseeing?
Regrettably, we must conclude that it is not, for either residents or tourists the situation in Fukushima is not safe.
These websites also point out that the international annual dose limit for the public is at 1mSv, but this level is easily exceeded by only one CT-scan, insinuating that this 1mSv standard is set too low and thus not a useful indicator.
CT-Scans are often cited as if they had no radiation risks, But this is not true. A recent study clearly shows that every CT-scan (about 4.5mSv irradiation) increases the risk of cancers in children by 24%. See the website below.
In Fukushima the allowable level of radiation per year for residents is now 20mSv. Can you imagine having 4-5 CT-scans every year?
One of the websites states: "In Fukushima, the indoor radiation doses are now so reduced that no radioactive cesium can be found in the air. Therefore, no radioactive particles can invade the human body during breathing." What do you think of this statement?
The Japanese government also ignores the long term peril caused by "hot particles" ――micron-and- nano-sized radioactive particulates――which, if inhaled or absorbed into the human body, may lead to many kinds of cancers and other diseases including cardiac failure. We should consider internal irradiation to the cells near the radiation sources to be 500 times more dangerous than external irradiation because particles inside the body radiates very near or even inside cells, causing intensive damage to DNAs and other cell organs such as mitochondria.
These websites explain that there exists not only artificial but also natural radioactivity, thus people are living in an environment surrounded by radiation all the time in everyday life.
One of the main tactics that the Japanese government often uses to propagate the "safety of low level irradiation" is to compare artificial radioactivity with natural radioactivity. But this logic is a methodological sleight of hand. It is crystal-clear that even exposure to natural radioactivity has its own health risks. Cancers sickened and killed people long before artificial radioactivity was used. For example, Seishu Hanaoka, one of the founders of Japan’s medicine, carried out 152 breast cancer surgeries from 1804 to 1836.
Both kinds of radioactivity have their own health risks. Risks caused by artificial radioactivity should not be compared but be added to the natural radioactivity risks as they both lead to the accumulation of exposure.
For example, potassium 40 (K40) is a typical natural radioactive nuclide. According to the Japanese government, the average internal exposure dose for adults from K40 is about 4,000Bq/year or 0.17mSv/year. See the website below (in Japanese).
The ICRP risk model (2007) allows us to estimate the approximate risk posed by K40. The calculation shows that K40 is responsible for approximately 4,000 cancer cases and 1,000 deaths every year. If the same amount of radiation was added to that of K40 in the human body by artificial sources, the cancers and mortalities would be doubled to 8,000 and 2,000 a year, respectively. Based on the ECRR (2010) model, which criticizes the ICRP risk model as a severe underestimate, these figures should be multiplied by 40, reaching 320,000 and 80,000, respectively.
The extract you cite from the Fukushima government website is completely fake: "In Fukushima, the indoor radiation doses are now so reduced that no radioactive cesium can be found in the air. Therefore, no radioactive particles can invade the human body during respiration". Reports from civic radiation measurement stations refute this claim. For example, dust collecting paper packs of vacuum cleaners used in Iwaki City, Fukushima prefecture, are radiologically measured and 4,800-53,900Bq/kg radioactive cesium was detected in Oct-Dec 2015. See the website below (in Japanese).
One of the websites says that the Fukushima prefecture has conducted whole-body counter screenings of the 170,000 local population so far but cesium was rarely detected." Does this mean that we can safely consume food from Fukushima, and Fukushima residents are no longer being exposed internally to radiation?
This is a typical example of demagogy by the Japanese government: vague expressions lacking specific data, using the words "safe and secure" without clear explanation. In reality, the government has not publicized any data indicating serious irradiation of the population. For example, you mentioned the Fukushima prefectural government website saying that whole-body counter screenings of 170,000 members of the local population have found radioactive Cs only in very few cases. However, the fact that no specific number is given makes the statement suspicious.
These statistics, more than likely, exclude many firefighters or other municipal employees who, at the time of accident, helped local residents evacuate from a lot of contaminated areas surrounding the defunct Fukushima plant. These people were subjected to serious radiation doses.
Civic groups’ efforts for the disclosure of information has recently prompted city officials near the defunct plant to disclose the fact that it conducted whole-body counter check-ups on about 180 firefighters, nurses and municipal employees. According to Koichi Ohyama, a member of the municipal assembly of Minami Soma, the screening conducted in July, 2011, showed almost all of these people tested positive in Cs. The maximum Cs137 dose among the firefighters was as high as 140,000 Bq. This data reveals a part of the reality of irradiation but it is only a tiny part.
The government websites suggest that no health effects from irradiation have been reported in Fukushima. Is this true? Or have any symptoms appeared that indicate an increase in radiation-induced diseases in Fukushima?
One example is the outbreak of child thyroid cancer, but the Japanese government has been denying the relationship with irradiation from radioactive iodine released from the Fukushima disaster.
Japan’s population statistics reflect the health effects from the Fukushima disaster radioactivity. The following data clearly show that diseases increasing in Fukushima are highly likely to have been radiation-induced.
[Question 7] The Fukushima prefecture website says, "After the Fukushima accident, the Japanese government has introduced the provisional standards for radioactive iodine and cesium. The Fukushima prefectural government subsequently strictly regulated distribution and consumption of food with levels of radioactivity exceeding the provisional standards. Now we have had this new much stricter standard. The distribution and consumption of food exceeding this new standard has been continuously regulated; therefore any food on the market is safe to consume." Is it true?
[Answer] As for food contamination, the Japanese government has also tried to cover up the real picture. First, the current government standard for radioactivity in food, 100Bq/kg, is dangerously high for human health, especially for fetuses, infants, children and pregnant women. Even six and a half years after the accident, the Agriculture Ministry of Japan as well as many civic radioactivity measurement stations all over the country have reported many food contamination cases, although the frequency is evidently reduced.
The Japanese government has underestimated the danger presented by internal irradiation. But, we must consider two important factors. (1) The wide range of difference in personal radio-sensitivity. According to Professor Tadashi Hongyo (Osaka University Medical Faculty), the maximum difference is as wide as 100 times in terms of biological half-life of Cs137. (2) Recent studies denying that the so-called biological half-life decrease curve actually exists. According to the new model, daily food contamination can cause concentrations to accumulate as time passes. Even a daily 1Bq internal radiation dose from food cannot be safe for human health (details below).
Our recommendation is to be cautious of food or produce from Fukushima and the surrounding areas, and, even if contamination levels are said to have now generally decreased, to avoid jumping to the conclusion that all the food is fit to eat.
[Question 8] We would like to ask about the situations in prefectures surrounding Fukushima. A television program once reported, "As for the safety of Tochigi and Gunma prefectures, few people are raising concern about health effects of radiation." Is it true that the prefectures somewhat distant from the Fukushima Daiichi plant are now safe with no human risk?
[Answer] Regarding the radioactive contamination in prefectures surrounding Fukushima, you can refer to the following website.
This article examines the contamination in the Tokyo metropolitan area, but conditions are the same or more serious in Tochigi or other prefectures north of Tokyo, nearer to the defunct Fukushima Daiichi plant.
Another example is the statistics of stillbirth and neonatal mortality in Fukushima and the surrounding five prefectures (Tochigi, Gunma, Ibaragi, Miyagi, Iwate) shown below.
Perinatal mortality in not only Fukushima prefecture but also neighboring prefectures rose 15.6% just 10 months after the accidents. This clearly indicates the existence of some kind of human health damage from radiation.
[Question 9] We would like to ask about the decontamination efforts by famers living in Fukushima and neighboring prefectures. Should we think highly of the farmers measuring the amount of radiation deposited on the surface of soil to create radiation maps for farms, or washing the radiation from the surface of every single tree off the radiation with high-pressure washers? The farmers said that while these methods have been shown to be radiologically effective, their produce did not sell well, because consumers are still feeling anxious about health risks. Does the problem of radioactive food contamination in Japan just end up in whether each consumer personally believes it safe or not?
[Answer] We must raise a question that, despite the government’s decontamination efforts, a huge amount of radioactive materials deposited in mountainous areas remain untouched. Now they are re-dispersing and re-depositing over wide areas of Fukushima and surrounding prefectures via winds, cars, trains, river water, pollen, spores, emissions from incinerators, in the form of radioactive dusts and particulates, among many others. For an example, see the following website.
So I regret to say that, although these farmers’ endeavors you mentioned are very precious and respectable, they are not sufficient to completely eliminate the risk of radiation exposure from food. The problem exists objectively in the nuclear materials deposited on and in soil, algae, plants, houses, buildings, forests, animal and human bodies, not subjectively in the consumers’ sentiment or psychology.
[Question 10] Japanese experts have recently pitched a cultivation method that can remove cesium by intensive use of potassium fertilizer. Is this method effective at all? Do you have any doubt about their claims?
[Answer] They seem to be among those experts who have been criticizing the general public’s tendency to demand "zero irradiation risk" as an obstacle to Fukushima reconstruction.
As you know, cesium (Cs) has chemically similar characteristics to potassium (K). So it is true that higher levels of application of potassium fertilizer lowers the plant’s absorption, and therefore concentration, of radioactive Cs, decreasing Cs137/134 concentrations in produce, often to below the government standard of 100Bq/kg. But the following problems remain: (1) This procedure can prevent Cs transfer from the soil to produce only partly, not completely; (2) This process raises the potassium concentration in the produce and therefore heightens the burdens on certain human organs such as kidneys, the heart and the nervous system, causing new health risks; (3) Heightened concentration of potassium also leads to the heightened concentration of radioactive K40, so the reduced risk of radioactive Cs lead to an increased risk of internal irradiation by K40.
[Question 11] Even if cesium concentration was reduced by applying more potassium fertilizer than usual, strontium contamination would remain. In Japanese government’s international press campaign as to the Fukushima accident, almost nothing has been said about strontium. If you have any information on strontium contamination, let us know.
[Answer] We regret that the information about strontium that you are asking for is very limited and searching for it is also a challenge for us. The Japanese government and research institutes under the government have reported very limited data regarding strontium contamination. But it is important that the Japanese government admits the fact of strontium contamination within 80km from the defunct Fukushima plant. See the website below.
The US Department of Energy data on the strontium contamination of soil in Japan and its visualization (in Japanese) can be seen on the websites below.
[Question 12] Some Japanese experts say, "the Japanese government has declared that no health effects from irradiation below 100mSv (or 100mSv/year) have been confirmed." Some farmers have established a private food standard of 20Bq/kg, much lower than the Japanese government standard of 100Bq/kg. Do you think that doses under 100mSv or under 20Bq/kg are safe and secure?
[Answer] As you mentioned, the Japanese government claims that no scientific studies verify that irradiation of 100mSv or less poses a threat to human health, suggesting that irradiation under 100mSv has no risk. This, however, is false. The government is fabricating this information. In fact, very many scientific studies have already confirmed and proven health effects induced by irradiation under 100mSv. For example, see the websites below.
Background Ionizing Radiation and the Risk of Childhood Cancer: A Census-Based Nationwide Cohort Study
The Japanese government is using the term "100mSv" in a deliberately ambiguous and confusing manner. The expression 100mSv can have three meanings: (1) a one-time irradiation dose, (2) cumulative irradiation doses, or (3) annual irradiation doses. So 100mSv is not the same as, nor equal to the 100mSv/year that you mentioned in parenthesis. The latter amounts to a 1Sv in cumulative dose over 10 years (which is an up to 10% lethal dose), and 5Sv over 50 years (which is a 50% lethal dose). The present government standard for evacuees to return, 20mSv/year, means that living there for 5 years leads to a cumulative dose of 100mSv, at which the Japanese government admits clear health risks.
Regarding 20Bq/kg as some farmers’ private food standard, it is critical to pay serious attention to the extraction process of Cs from tissues. Japanese-Canadian non-organic biochemist Eiichiro Ochiai points out in his book "Hiroshima to Fukushima, Biohazards of Radiation" (2014) that, based on the Leggett model, the Cs concentration injected in tissues at one time diminishes relatively quickly for about 10 days in most tissues. After that, processes slow down, tending to become steady. He writes: the decrease of the overall Cs level in the body does not follow an exponential decay curve (p.83). This means that consecutive intake of Cs, even in very low levels, results in the accumulation of Cs in the body. (Incidentally, Ochiai’s book can be downloaded for free from the website below.) https://archive.org/details/HiroshimaToFukushima
Regarding the Leggett model, see the website below.
Yuri Bandazhevsky considers over 10Bq/kg of radioactive Cs concentrations in the body to be unsafe because even this low level can possibly cause abnormal electrocardiographic pattern in babies, metabolic disorders, high blood pressure, cataracts, and so on.
Therefore, we can conclude unequivocally that neither the irradiation under 100mSv nor the privately set 20Bq/kg food standard are safe and secure."

4- Experts doubt lifting of Japan food ban
Jan 11, 2018 - Many countries and regions, including China, the U.S., South Korea, Singapore and the EU, have curbed imports of food products from areas near the stricken Fukushima nuclear plant over fears of potential contamination, although some have recently eased their restrictions.
5- AMERICAN COMPANIES CAN USE FOODS FROM JAPAN AND NOT HAVE TO LABEL IT AS COMING FROM JAPAN. THEY CAN THEN EXPORT THOSE FOOD ITEMS ANYWHERE ON EARTH.
WHAT YOU MAY NOT KNOW ABOUT U.S. FOOD LABELING LAW CAN HARM YOU.
"Under §304 of the Tariff Act of 1930 as amended (19 U.S.C. § 1304), every imported item must be conspicuously and indelibly marked in English to indicate to the "ultimate purchaser" its country of origin." According to the U.S. Customs, generally defined the "ultimate purchaser" is the last U.S. person who will receive the goods in the form in which it was imported.
However, if the goods are destined for a U.S. based processor where they will undergo "substantial transformation", then that processor or manufacturer is considered the ultimate purchaser. The law authorizes exceptions to labeling requirements, such as for articles incapable of being marked or where the cost would be "economically prohibitive."
This does not apply to food 'processed' in the US with ingredients from other countries. Processed food includes milk, juice, dry foods and dietary supplements/vitamins. FDA website states: 1. An imported product, such as shrimp, is peeled, deveined and incorporated into a shrimp dish, such as "shrimp quiche." The product is no longer identifiable as shrimp but as "quiche." The quiche is a product of the US. So labeling it as "product of the USA" would not be a violation of the FFD&C Act. (Whether or not it violates *CBP’s* requirements would need to be asked.) 2. An imported product, such as shrimp, is peeled and deveined. It is labeled as "Imported by" or "Distributed by" a firm in the USA. Such labeling would not violate the FFD&C Act, but it would not meet the *CBP’s* requirement for country of origin labeling. The product would also have to be clearly identified as to country of origin.
In 2009, the Canadian government launched a challenge to mCOOL at the World Trade Organization (WTO). The Canadian federal government argued before the WTO that American "country of origin" labelling rules (COOL) actually worked to the detriment of the meat industry on both sides of the border by increasing costs, lowering processing efficiency and otherwise distorting trade across the Canada-U.S. border. Mexico made similar claims.
In 2011, Canada said the WTO ruled in Canada's favor. The US said the panel affirmed the right of the United States to require country of origin labeling for meat products. Canada and Mexico are asking the WTO for another review and permission to impose more than $2 billion a year in retaliatory tariffs, and the governments involved will be notified confidentially of the WTO decision on June 20, which will be made public a month later.[needs update]
In May 2015, the WTO upheld its previous ruling that the U.S. COOL requirements discriminated against Canadian and Mexican livestock. The two countries asked the WTO to authorize US$3 billion in retaliatory tariffs against U.S. imports. In December 2015, the WTO determined the impact of the COOL requirements on the Canadian and Mexican economies at $1.1 billion and authorized Canada and Mexico to impose $781 million and $228 million, respectively, in retaliatory tariffs against U.S. imports.HYPERLINK \l "cite_note-9"
