Amazon-Fire-TV-CIA

Amazon Fire TV monitors and records your conversations

By Mike Adams, the Health Ranger

(NaturalNews) Amazon.com is building the CIA’s new $600 million data center, reports the Financial Times. (1) At the same time Amazon.com is building this massive cloud computing infrastructure for the CIA, the company is also shipping millions of Fire TV set-top devices to customers who are placing them in their private homes. I have one myself, and it’s a terrific piece of hardware for delivering Prime video content. In fact, in terms of its usability and specs, it’s far superior to Roku or Netflix-capable devices. Fire TV is, hands down, the best set-top video delivery device on the market today.

But there’s something about it that always struck me as odd: it has no power button. There’s no power button on the remote, and there’s no power button on the box. It turns out there’s no way to power the device off except for unplugging it.

This is highly unusual and apparently done by design. “It is not necessary to turn off Amazon Fire TV when you are finished using it,” says the Amazon.com website. (2) “Your Amazon Fire TV is designed to go into sleep mode after 30 minutes, while continuing to automatically receive important software updates.”

Note carefully that this does not say your Fire TV device WILL go into sleep mode after 30 minutes; only that it is “designed” to go into sleep mode after 30 minutes. As lawyers well know, this is a huge difference.

Fire TV devices linked to your identity

So far, you might not be convinced this is anything to write home about, but there’s much more to this story. What we know so far is that Amazon.com is building the CIA’s new cloud computing data center, and we also know the company’s Fire TV devices have no way to be turned off and are being placed in the living rooms of private homes.

What starts to make this really interesting is when you realize these devices are linked to your identity before they’re shipped to you.

Ever notice that when you power on your Fire TV device, it already knows who you are? Your entire library of video purchases on Amazon.com is already available, and those purchases are of course linked to your credit card, which is linked to your social security number, which is linked to your identity.

In other words, Amazon.com knows the identity of the owner of every Fire TV box currently sitting in living rooms across America. This mean it can connect everything that happens around that box (including audio monitoring, as you’ll see below) to your personal identity.

Fire TV devices listen to your voice and upload audio to Amazon servers

Here’s the next piece of this puzzle that may give you pause: There is a built-in microphone on the Fire TV remote.

When you click the search button, your voice is recorded and uploaded to Amazon.com servers where it is analyzed by Amazon cloud computing applications — the same kind of thing Amazon is building for the CIA — in order to return search matches to your local TV screen.

Now, I fully realize that most Americans are too gullible and naive to believe their audio recordings get uploaded to Amazon.com servers, so I’m going to quote CNET.com here which published an article earlier this year entitled: “How to delete your Fire TV voice recordings – Amazon stores your recordings on its servers to improve accuracy of voice searches. Here’s how you can delete that data.” (3)

As this article openly states, “To improve the service and the voice results, however, Amazon records and stores the voice samples associated with your account to its servers.”

It goes on to warn readers that “there is no way to opt-out of Amazon’s voice storage.”

And there you have it: the Fire TV device was engineered from the start to record your voice, upload it to Amazon’s servers — now being expanded to the CIA — and link those voice recordings to your identity.

Nothing written in this article so far should be debatable in the least: it’s all fact, openly admitted by the company itself. Then again, the average Netizen is so clueless about reality that you’ll probably see people denying the fact that Fire TV set-top boxes have microphones and the ability to upload voice recordings to Amazon.com. Some will call that a “conspiracy theory” even though it’s part of the published specification of the device.

But there’s even more to this story that does legitimately qualify as a debatable topic. Let’s explore…

The perfect spy devices for monitoring private conversations in your home

How hard would it be for Fire TV devices to monitor and upload your conversations 24/7?

Think about it: Fire TV devices already have the hardware, software and bandwidth to record audio and upload it to Amazon.com. That’s part of the spec and functionality of the system. The devices have no power off button to discourage people from turning them off. The devices are already linked to your personal identity via your credit card on file with Amazon, and this is the same company that’s now building a massive storage and data center for the CIA, which for some reason now needs massive data storage capacity and the ability to process that data using buildings full of servers.

An article published by MHP Books (4) reveals that Amazon may already be working with the NSA to provide surveillance data on U.S. citizens:

…One mainstream source — Businessweek — rather perversely observes that the leaked documents show Dropbox was about to be added to the PRISM program, then goes on to say that “This is a weird one because Dropbox stores its customers’ files on Amazon.com’s cloud computing service, yet Amazon appears nowhere in the Prism documents.” It fails to note that not all the companies suspected of supplying the NSA with info were named in the documents — that those documents were in fact redacted — although it does show a modicum of due diligence in asking Amazon if it was participating in the NSA program, and a spokeswoman responds with an apparent two word answer: “Not cooperating.”

But are they to be believed? Other non-mainstreamers report bluntly that Amazon was part of PRISM. To still other observers, such as this reader in the Guardian, it seems obvious: “Does this explain the apparent immunity to tax of Apple, Amazon and co?” she asks.

Full details on the PRISM infrastructure exposed by Edward Snowden are described in this Market Oracle article. We’ve also covered it here on Natural News.

Another article entitled, “Snowden slams Amazon for leaking customer data to the NSA” reveals how former NSA contractor Edward Snowden harshly criticized Amazon.com for allowing intelligence agencies to read everything you browse on Amazon.com, including book titles, movies and more. This is happening due to Amazon.com’s failure to implement proper encryption protocols, Snowden explains. (5)

Corporations spying on their own customers is a conspiracy FACT

You can fully expect that many people who are still living in the pre-Snowden era will immediately decry this article as a “conspiracy theory.” But doing so only paints a dunce label on their foreheads, because thanks to Snowden, we already know as a matter of record that nearly all the large data companies routinely spy on their own customers and hand over that data to the NSA. Welcome to 1984, three decades later.

Perhaps in 2004, the idea that all your phone calls, emails, credit card transactions, banking activities, web surfing habits and social media posts were monitored by the NSA could be considered kooky and weird. But today, ten years later, all this (and more) is known to be historical fact.

If you don’t believe me, listen to the words of former high-level NSA architect William Binney who now warns that “the ultimate goal of the NSA is total population control,” according to a headline in The Guardian. (6)

That Guardian article goes on to report:

Binney recently told the German NSA inquiry committee that his former employer had a “totalitarian mentality” that was the “greatest threat” to US society since that country’s US Civil War in the 19th century.

The era of mass surveillance has gone from the fringes of public debate to the mainstream, where it belongs… One of Europe’s leading web creators, Lena Thiele, presented her stunning series Netwars in London on the threat of cyber warfare. She showed how easy it is for governments and corporations to capture our personal information without us even realising.

That may be exactly what Amazon is doing right now with Fire TV set-top boxes: capturing our personal information without us realizing.

Huge intelligence value of recording your private conversations

Imagine the intelligence value of having 24/7 audio streams of private household conversations that are linked to all the other information Amazon already has on us: book purchasing habits, video viewing habits, shopping behaviors and more. While many people concerned about digital privacy often point to Google’s tracking of your search queries, in truth Amazon.com has a far more intimate knowledge of your psyche than Google because Amazon knows what you’re buying, watching, reading and consuming.

I’m sure my own Amazon.com purchase history would be a goldmine of data revealing a long history of purchases of laboratory equipment, firearms accessories, rare books and products related to special interest areas such as aviation history and aquaponics. Imagine the value of this information if combined with live audio of someone holding private conversations in their own living room.

With Fire TV, Amazon may have already displaced Google as the internet company that knows more about your psyche than anyone else. And Amazon is the company that’s now building the CIA’s new cloud computing center.

Gives you something to ponder, doesn’t it?

All Fire TV devices are one update away from being activated as spy devices

I fully realize there may be many skeptics who can’t possibly fathom the idea of Amazon.com spying on them in their own living rooms. Then again, there are still people who believe that concrete-and-steel buildings collapse like a perfect demolition job following a few small office fires. Go figure.

But consider this: Even if Fire TV boxes aren’t currently being used to spy on you, they could be activated as spy devices with a simple software update.

And guess what? Those software updates are automatic and selective. In other words, Amazon.com could turn on spying functions for certain selected Fire TV boxes belonging to certain people the NSA or CIA wanted to monitor.

The updates happen quietly, in the background, without your knowledge. One day you wake up and your Fire TV box is suddenly monitoring everything you say, without your knowledge, right in your own living room.

Anyone who thinks this isn’t possible is living in a world of delusion. Corporations routinely spy on their own customers and turn over that data to the NSA or CIA. The more realistic question is: why wouldn’t Amazon already be doing this?

Simple solution: UNPLUG!

Fortunately, there’s a simple solution to all this: UNPLUG it!

In fact, the mantra “Unplug” might be the perfect word for the greatest wisdom of our time. If you don’t want to be spied on, unplug from the grid: don’t shop at Amazon.com, don’t run search queries on Google, don’t use email, don’t use credit cards and don’t install spy devices in your own living room.

By simply unplugging these devices, you deny them the stream of electrons they need to spy on you. That’s their Achilles Heel: they all need electricity, and YOU control the electricity.

Personally, I love using Fire TV, but I now unplug it when I’m not watching something. This not only protects my privacy from Amazon snoops, it also seems to make the device function a lot better by rebooting it each time.

If you have a Fire TV device, unplug it when you’re not using it. You’ll save a small amount of electricity, but more importantly you might also save your privacy from the prying eyes at Amazon, the NSA and the CIA, all of which are aggressively expanding their monitoring and surveillance of Americans.

Rand Paul

According to Zogby Analytics’ latest 2016 GOP presidential primary poll, Rand Paul has taken a clear lead and is emerging as a distinct front-runner.

Contributed to TLB by: BenSwann.com

By: Barry Donegan

John Zogby, namesake and founder of Zogby Analytics’ famous poll, recently penned an article in Forbes discussing the findings of his latest 2016 presidential primary survey. In it, he noted that clear front-runners were beginning to appear in both the Democratic and Republican primary races. According to the poll, Hillary Clinton is, as expected, in cruise control over potential Democratic rivals, holding the support of 52% of those polled, with next-in-line Joe Biden in second place with only 8% support. On the GOP side, however, the results are uniquely consequential, as Rand Paul has broken out of the pack and taken a clear lead over other potential 2016 Republican contenders.

The GOP presidential poll, which was conducted between June 27-29 and included the opinions of 282 likely Republican primary voters, found Rand Paul leading with 20%. Next in line were Governor Chris Christie of New Jersey and former Governor Jeb Bush of Florida, both of whom tied for second with 13% support. No other GOP candidate broke single digits. Said John Zogby of the poll, “This is the first time a GOP candidate has reached 20% in a crowded field and the first time a Zogby poll has shown someone emerging a bit from the pack.”

Rand Paul’s success in the poll comes as a surprise considering the fact that other establishment candidates have better name identification levels among the public. Said Zogby, “Unlike typical polls at this early stage, Paul’s lead is not attributable to simple name recognition. He is decidedly less known than Bush, Christie, and Rubio. He may be drawing on his famous father’s support from previous runs – perhaps in the same way early polls in the late 1990s showed George W. Bush leading the field – but Rand Paul is emerging as the frontrunner in this race.”

Zogby also notes that the poll found Senator Paul scoring well in a variety of key sub-groups. He leads over other contenders among moderates, independents, conservatives, and self-identified Republicans. He holds the highest level of support among protestants and born-again evangelicals. He also scored 29% support among men.

In his analysis, Zogby cautioned that the metrics could change considerably, as there are currently no officially-announced candidates, and support levels may change depending on which candidates actually end up running. That said, Paul is emerging as a clear front-runner, and, if he matches his father Ron Paul’s success in terms of fundraising and winning straw polls, Zogby feels that momentum could intensify.

Zogby’s Democratic primary poll also contains some interesting data relevant to the alleged Obama-Clinton feud. Amid rumors that President Barack Obama may be supporting Senator Elizabeth Warren against Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential race, Zogby found it significant that the hard left-leaning Warren achieved only 7% support in the Democratic version of the poll, which measured the preferences of 612 likely Democratic primary voters. Said Zogby of the dynamic, “Perhaps most telling from the Democratic poll is that Sen. Warren is well behind among self-described liberals.”

It appears based on this round of polls that the 2016 presidential race might feature a head-to-head match-up between Senator Rand Paul and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

nuclear-explosion[1]

Pre-Show Commentary by: Roger Landry (TLB)

It has been many years since the so called Cold War ended. This was a time in global history when the world’s population hung on the precipice of Nuclear annihilation with the two great nuclear superpowers both wielding enough mega-tonnage to destroy all life on this planet many times over. With the collapse of the old USSR this possibility or probability faded quickly from our consciousness.

Now it would seem that once again there are those within the US power structure who feel a limited Nuclear first strike is not only possible but viable. Yet we look at the damage to this planet and its biosphere being facilitated by one mechanism of disaster, Fukushima, and we see major health implications and massive aquatic die offs underway. Now imagine the fallout from even a limited Nuclear strike of the magnitude required to incapacitate a nation such as Russia or China, that being enough warheads to decapitate the retaliatory capability of either or both of these nations. This would require strikes across both nations and many of them …. Say goodby to humanity.

The sheer arrogance of these individuals amazes and astounds any rational person. The massive volume of peer reviewed research available on this topic is mind boggling. The result of sitting on the precipice of destruction for several generations facilitated a mountain of information on the subject and none of it was promising for humanity, thus the phrase Mutually Assured Destruction (MAD) was coined and it became common knowledge that humanity as we know it could not survive even a so-called limited preemptive strike.

Whether it is preemptive (to negate a potential enemies capability to strike first) to prevent a sneak attack, or subversive (to rob a nation or nations of their economic or regional influence) to assert or reassert political, economic or military control, it is all of humanity that will surely suffer the fatality of this insanity. The mere thought that this is once again being considered a viable option in any scenario screams volumes as to the convoluted mindset of those who pull the strings of power in the western world today. The bottom line must be that we are no longer discussing whether or not we will leave a better world for our children … we are now discussing if we will leave ANY world for our children !!!

Is this desperation to maintain economic control in the face of the global collapse of the dollar? Is this unbridled arrogance by these elite who foresee the shift of power from the west to the east facilitating the ruination of their global economic empires? Or will this be a concerted effort to (as many of us discuss) massively reduce the global population? In any case the end result is the demise of humanity itself. Even if these elite manage to survive the inescapable Holocaust they would unleash tucked away in the underground bunkers, with the failure of Nuclear power plants across the planet inevitable, this planet would be poisonous and fatal to any remaining humanity for countless generations or centuries into the future …

The Liberty Beacon RANT

We are already painfully aware of the blight on this planet being caused by such destructive mechanisms as failing Nuclear Power facilities, Geo-engineering (weather modification) and Genetically Modified Organisms. But these are slow kill scenarios when compared to the immediacy of the Nuclear War option (even on a limited scale). While the first two may take decades or generations to facilitated the downfall of a vast majority of humanity, the Nuclear option would accomplish this in mere years … with a very large portion of the global population being eliminated in very short order and the remaining dying off of starvation or sickness in the few years following this fiasco.

alternative media

 

By: TLB Contributor: Dave Hodges.

I used to lament the fact that 98% of the mainstream media was owned by five corporations. A decade ago, we all knew that the media was controlled, but the public would laugh in our faces for saying so. Today, the laughter and cries of “conspiracy theorist” are fading. The mainstream media is dying and the alternative media is exploding and will soon be king.

This is a highly significant development. If the globalists are truly going to impose draconian martial law control in the United States, controlling the narrative is critical. In fact, if the globalists are going to achieve complete dictatorial control over our country, they must achieve two objectives. First, they must quickly move to control the Internet because the alternative media is approaching critical mass and more and more of the public is waking up. Sociologists will tell you that when a committed movement reaches 10% of the population, the movement explodes! I will be writing a future article where I fully develop this point.

The globalists are quickly reaching the point where they can no longer tolerate the Hagmann and Hagmann Report, Steve Quayle and Alex Jones. The globalists must move quickly to subjugate the alternative media before it becomes impossible to control the population. This article examines this trend curve.

The following video sets the tone nicely for the subsequent discussion with regard to understanding how the mainstream media is on life support.

 

Coast to Coast Is the Barometer

When Coast to Coast left the alternative media and became part of the censored mainstream media, that put the show on the road to life support.

Art Bell used to be the king of night time radio. His show was creative and captured much of America’s listening audience’s imagination. However, when Art sold control of his show to Premiere Networks and ultimately to Clear Channel Communications, Art lost a good portion of his editorial control and Coast to Coast was never the same. Eventually, Art left Coast and it has been nothing but a ratings slide ever since, except for the brief breath of fresh air provided by John B. Wells.

After a period of prolonged instability following the departure of Art Bell as the primary host of Coast to Coast, George Noory entered the scene in 2003 where he has since remained. However, Noory’s listening numbers are nothing to write home about. Once upon a time, some estimated that Art Bell had somewhere around 6-12 million listeners on any given night. In contrast, Noory’s numbers are a much smaller 275,000 to 300,000 listeners per night. Interestingly, the Hagmann and Hagmann report boasts very similar numbers on a good night. Further, Alex Jones averages two million listeners per week, which averages about 400,000 per day which is leaving Coast to Coast in the rear view mirror. If Coast to Coast is to remain a viable entity, they will have to begin to embrace the pioneer spirit of Art Bell and John B. Wells.

When John B. Wells joined coast, his numbers were anywhere between 750,000 to 1.2 million listeners for any given Saturday night. This ratings disparity could not have resonated well with George Noory.

There were some who were in favor of making Wells the permanent host of the show during the week. This idea was met with draconian repression in an effort to preserve the status quo. George Noory has proven to be a good corporate employee and a great protector of the corporate interest and that is first and foremost in importance to management at Clear Channel. This speaks to the clear message of what Coast to Coast has become.

One has to go no further than Steve Quayle’s website to understand the seismic shift in who the public is following with regard to getting their news. Steve has one of the largest websites in the world. In the alternative media, he is in the top three. He has 1,533 websites that follow his work and publications on a daily basis. This exponentially increases his reach in a way that would have not been possible before the introduction of the Internet.

The numbers are in, and as you can see below, people would rather go to sites like Steve Quayle, or listen to Doug and Joe Hagmann, rather than get their news from CNN, Fox, HLN or MSNBC.

Case In Point: The Common Sense Show

This past Friday, June 27, 2014, I received just over 30,000 hits on my website. This is not an atypical number of visitors. A year ago to the day, I only received 5,100 hits. I do not think my content improved that significantly over the past year. Rather, the mainstream audience is moving to the alternative media. Ernie Hancock, owner of Freedoms Phoenix, likes to cite the statistic that we are witnessing that almost tw0-thirds of all people under 30 are getting their news from a digital source. My website is proof that the media shift is taking place and is doing so in a dramatic way.

Many of you will remember, that just about a month ago, that my stories on child sex trafficking and Benghazi led to my family being threatened to the point where I decided to suspend my website operations for 2.5 days while I contemplated my response to the threats I was receiving. I was shocked that I would draw the ire of powerful people because of what I printed on my modest website. I have been told that this time the powers that be are upset that I am writing about the crisis on the border with regard to the increasing UN presence and the likelihood of a planned breakout of pandemics as a result of unscreened illegal immigrants. Therefore, I set out on a path to discover the answer to the question, why little ‘Ole me?

I am a statistics person, having taught and written courses in the field. Consequently, I wanted to know why I was drawing negative attention. Last night, I did an analytical examination of my website and the results shocked me when I extrapolated the stats in a manner which told me how many people I am reaching on a national level. The notable statistic has to do with the measurement called “unique visitors”. This statistic measures how many individuals have visited my site and the stat does not measure multiple visits by the same person. In the last 12 months, my unique visitors total is almost 3.9 million readers. Also, my page views are always well over a million per month which tells me that these people, for the most part, are not passive visitors. When one analyzes what percentage of the population, over 40, is visiting my website, the estimated figure is that 6.7% of the American middle aged population has visited my site at least one time in the past year. Further, my site is picked up by 1,391 other sites and I have a nationally syndicated radio show. I was stunned at the implications and the numbers and in that moment I realized that I was no longer operating in relative anonymity as I was a year ago. I now understand why I have been a target in recent history. As my dad would tell me, I need to grow up and take my responsibilities more seriously.

When one compares my modest numbers to someone like Steve Quayle, I would make a rough estimate that Steve’s site has been visited by between 10-11% of the same demographic,and these numbers are much higher on some days. These estimates are the result of analyzing both Google Analytics and Alexa which are not perfect cyber metrics, but are capable of showing accurate trend curves. These numbers are clearly illustrative of the fact that the alternative media has nearly caught the mainstream media, and in the case of Steve Quayle, the Hagmanns’ and Alex Jones, we are surpassing much of the mainstream media.

Do you realize what this means? Most alternative media broadcasters use Skype, twitter and other social media to increase their exposure. We do not have the large sums of money that Clear Channel can throw at Coast to Coast. Our advertisers are NOT Ford, GM, the big brokerage houses, etc. Our sponsors are sellers of useful and everyday products such as organic seeds and water purification products whose vendors are normally individual proprietors.

THIS ALL MEANS THAT MAINSTREAM AMERICA IS KICKING THE REAR END OVER ON WALL STREET.

In the alternative media, we are riding the crest of America’s changing news gathering habits. America is sick and tired of the censored news as promoted by the mainstream media on behalf of its five corporate owners. Globalists such as Soros and Brzezinski have bemoaned the fact that the public is waking up. This begs a couple of questions. First, what percentage does Hagmann, Quayle, Before Its News, et al. have to reach before their collective efforts will totally consume the country? The answer according to most sociologists and marketing experts is about 10% and when that number is reached exponential growth takes place. We are almost there, when one looks at the numbers I have presented in this article. In a future article, I will be detailing how close we are to having the message from the alternative media becoming the overwhelming dominant message. The second question has to do with how long with the purveyors of the status quo of the New World Order allow this unchecked growth, which threatens to greatly lessen their power and influence, be allowed to continue?

With the United Nations being poised to create a policing presence on American soil over the manufactured pandemic crises which are looming, I look for the Internet and our guns to be confiscated under the coming martial law. Does it make sense now as to why John Kerry illegally signed the UN Small Arms Ban? Is it now clear as to why Obama gave the Internet codes to the United Nations last year? All the prognostications made by the alternative media of what was coming with martial law, the complete obliteration of the First and Second Amendment are here, right now, today!

I believe that the globalists,or the Satanists as those of us who know them, like to call them, must move quickly. A quick case in point. There is a talk show originating out of Dallas during the late afternoon commute known as “The Dan Cofall Show“. Dan has had me on several times before and I have even hosted the show. This is a mainstream AM radio station and yet Dan brought me on yesterday and basically said that he thought that “people like Alex Jones and Dave Hodges are sometimes “out there” however, he said we are almost proven correct over time”. Dan even used the word “my mea culpa” in my introduction on yesterday’s show. And what did Dan have me talk about? The growing presence of UN military vehicles on our soil, the globalist Peter Sutherland, the border and the planned pandemics which are coming our way. People who still drink the Kool Aid of CNN were hearing the truth yesterday, in a way, like they never have before. As an aside, Dan may be on mainstream media, however, he is fully awake and is well known for his balanced approach to news. This is one small example of what is happening all across this country.

Enjoy the alternative media while you can. For comparative purposes, I though you might enjoy looking the declining number of the following mainstream media news outlets and compare them to the alternative media. This is eye opening.

Or will this be a concerted effort to (as many of us discuss) massively reduce the global population? In any case the end result is the demise of humanity itself. Even if these elite manage to survive the inescapable Holocaust they would unleash tucked away in the underground bunkers, with the failure of Nuclear power plants across the planet inevitable, this planet would be poisonous and fatal to any remaining humanity for countless generations or centuries into the future …

We are already painfully aware of the blight on this planet being caused by such destructive mechanisms as failing Nuclear Power facilities, Geo-engineering (weather modification) and Genetically Modified Organisms. But these are slow kill scenarios when compared to the immediacy of the Nuclear War option (even on a limited scale). While the first two may take decades or generations to facilitated the downfall of a vast majority of humanity, the Nuclear option would accomplish this in mere years … with a very large portion of the global population being eliminated in very short order and the remaining dying off of starvation or sickness in the few years following this fiasco.

What you will find attached below is a comprehensive explanation of the repercussions of any such madness and an explanation of why it very well may be conceivable that this scenario is being considered a viable option today … It’s time to get angry … its time to get vocal !!!

The Lethality of Nuclear Weapons

Author’s note: Paul Craig Roberts held top security clearances. He has repeatedly warned that a US-Russian nuclear war would wipe out the human race, along with all other complex forms of life. As a scientist with expert knowledge, I wish to echo and explain his warning.

The Lethality of Nuclear Weapons

Steven Starr

Nuclear war has no winner. Beginning in 2006, several of the world’s leading climatologists (at Rutgers, UCLA, John Hopkins University, and the University of Colorado-Boulder) published a series of studies that evaluated the long-term environmental consequences of a nuclear war, including baseline scenarios fought with merely 1% of the explosive power in the US and/or Russian launch-ready nuclear arsenals. They concluded that the consequences of even a “small” nuclear war would include catastrophic disruptions of global climate[i] and massive destruction of Earth’s protective ozone layer[ii]. These and more recent studies predict that global agriculture would be so negatively affected by such a war, a global famine would result, which would cause up to 2 billion people to starve to death. [iii]

These peer-reviewed studies – which were analyzed by the best scientists in the world and found to be without error – also predict that a war fought with less than half of US or Russian strategic nuclear weapons would destroy the human race.[iv] In other words, a US-Russian nuclear war would create such extreme long-term damage to the global environment that it would leave the Earth uninhabitable for humans and most animal forms of life.

A recent article in the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists, “Self-assured destruction: The climate impacts of nuclear war”,[v] begins by stating:

“A nuclear war between Russia and the United States, even after the arsenal reductions planned under New START, could produce a nuclear winter. Hence, an attack by either side could be suicidal, resulting in self-assured destruction.”

In 2009, I wrote an article[vi] for the International Commission on Nuclear Non-proliferation and Disarmament that summarizes the findings of these studies. It explains that nuclear firestorms would produce millions of tons of smoke, which would rise above cloud level and form a global stratospheric smoke layer that would rapidly encircle the Earth. The smoke layer would remain for at least a decade, and it would act to destroy the protective ozone layer (vastly increasing the UV-B reaching Earth[vii]) as well as block warming sunlight, thus creating Ice Age weather conditions that would last 10 years or longer.

Following a US-Russian nuclear war, temperatures in the central US and Eurasia would fall below freezing every day for one to three years; the intense cold would completely eliminate growing seasons for a decade or longer. No crops could be grown, leading to a famine that would kill most humans and large animal populations.

Electromagnetic pulse from high-altitude nuclear detonations would destroy the integrated circuits in all modern electronic devices[viii], including those in commercial nuclear power plants. Every nuclear reactor would almost instantly meltdown; every nuclear spent fuel pool (which contain many times more radioactivity than found in the reactors) would boil-off, releasing vast amounts of long-lived radioactivity. The fallout would make most of the US and Europe uninhabitable. Of course, the survivors of the nuclear war would be starving to death anyway.

Once nuclear weapons were introduced into a US-Russian conflict, there would be little chance that a nuclear holocaust could be avoided. Theories of “limited nuclear war” and “nuclear de-escalation” are unrealistic.[ix] In 2010 the Bush administration modified US strategic doctrine from a retaliatory role to permit preemptive nuclear attack, and Counterforce doctrine[x] – used by both the US and Russian military – emphasizes the need for preemptive strikes once nuclear war begins. Both sides would be under immense pressure to launch a preemptive nuclear first-strike once military hostilities had commenced, especially if nuclear weapons had already been used on the battlefield.

Both the US and Russia each have 400 to 500 launch-ready ballistic missiles armed with a total of at least 1800 strategic nuclear warheads,[xi] which can be launched with only a few minutes warning.[xii] Both the US and Russian Presidents are accompanied 24/7 by military officers carrying a “nuclear briefcase”, which allows them to transmit the permission order to launch in a matter of seconds.

Yet top political leaders and policymakers of both the US and Russia seem to be unaware that their launch-ready nuclear weapons represent a self-destruct mechanism for the human race. For example, in 2010, I was able to publicly question the chief negotiators of the New START treaty, Russian Ambassador Anatoly Antonov and (then) US Assistant Secretary of State, Rose Gottemoeller, during their joint briefing at the UN (during the Non-Proliferation Treaty Review Conference). I asked them if they were familiar with the recent peer-reviewed studies that
predicted the detonation of less than 1% of the explosive power contained in the operational and deployed U.S. and Russian nuclear forces would cause catastrophic changes in the global climate, and that a nuclear war fought with their strategic nuclear weapons would kill most people on Earth. They both answered “no.”

More recently, on April 20, 2014, I asked the same question and received the same answer from the US officials sent to brief representatives of the NGOS at the Non-Proliferation Treaty Preparatory Committee meeting at the UN. None of the US officials at the briefing were aware of the studies. Those present included top officials of the National Security Council.

It is frightening that President Obama and his administration appear unaware that the world’s leading scientists have for years predicted that a nuclear war fought with the US and/or Russian strategic nuclear arsenal means the end of human history. Do they not know of the existential threat these arsenals pose to the human race . . . or do they choose to remain silent because this fact doesn’t fit into their official narratives? We hear only about terrorist threats that could destroy a city with an atomic bomb, while the threat of human extinction from nuclear war is never mentioned – even when the US and Russia are each running huge nuclear war games in preparation for a US-Russian war.

Even more frightening is the fact that the neocons running US foreign policy believe that the US has “nuclear primacy” over Russia; that is, the US could successfully launch a nuclear sneak attack against Russian (and Chinese) nuclear forces and completely destroy them. This theory was articulated in 2006 in “The Rise of U.S. Nuclear Primacy”, which was published in Foreign Affairs by the Council on Foreign Relations.[xiii] By concluding that the Russians and Chinese would be unable to retaliate, or if some small part of their forces remained, would not risk a second US attack by retaliating, the article invites nuclear war.

Colonel Valery Yarynich (who was in charge of security of the Soviet/Russian nuclear command and control systems for 7 years) asked me to help him write a rebuttal, which was titled “Nuclear Primacy is a Fallacy”.[xiv] Colonel Yarynich, who was on the Soviet General Staff and did war planning for the USSR, concluded that the “Primacy” article used faulty methodology and erroneous assumptions, thus invalidating its conclusions. My contribution lay in my knowledge of the recently published (in 2006) studies, which predicted even a “successful” nuclear first-strike, which destroyed 100% of the opposing sides nuclear weapons, would cause the citizens of the side that “won” the nuclear war to perish from nuclear famine, just as would the rest of humanity.

Although the nuclear primacy article created quite a backlash in Russia, leading to a public speech by the Russian Foreign Minister, the story was essentially not covered in the US press. We were unable to get our rebuttal published by US media. The question remains as to whether the US nuclear primacy asserted in the article has been accepted as a fact by the US political and military establishment. Such acceptance would explain the recklessness of US policy toward Russia and China.

Thus we find ourselves in a situation in which those who are in charge of our nuclear arsenal seem not to understand that they can end human history if they choose to push the button. Most of the American public also remains completely unaware of this deadly threat. The uninformed are leading the uninformed toward the abyss of extinction.

US public schools have not taught students about nuclear weapons for more than 20 years. The last time nuclear war was discussed or debated in a US Presidential election was sometime in the last century. Thus, most people do not know that a single strategic nuclear weapon can easily ignite a massive firestorm over 100 square miles, and that the US and Russia each have many thousands of these weapons ready for immediate use.

Meanwhile, neoconservative ideology has kept the US at war during the entire 21st century. It has led to the expansion of US/NATO forces to the very borders of Russia, a huge mistake that has consequently revived the Cold War. A hallmark of neconservatism is that America is the “indispensable nation”, as evidenced by the neoconservative belief in “American exceptionalism”, which essentially asserts that Americans are superior to all other peoples, that American interests and values should reign supreme in the world.

At his West Point speech on May 28, President Obama said, “I believe in American exceptionalism with every fiber of my being.” Obama stated his bottom line is that “America must always lead on the world stage,” and “the backbone of that leadership always will be the military.” American exceptionalism based on might, not diplomacy, on hard power, not soft, is precisely the hubris and arrogance that could lead to the termination of human life. Washington’s determination to prevent the rise of Russia and China, as set out in the Brzezinski and Wolfowitz doctrines, is a recipe for nuclear war.

The need is dire for the president of the US, Russia, or China to state in a highly public forum that the existence of nuclear weapons creates the possibility of their use and that their use in war would likely mean human extinction. As nuclear war has no winners, the weapons should be banned and destroyed before they destroy all of us.

Dr.-David-Lewis[1]

By: Roger Landry (TLB)

WHAT YOU DON’T KNOW CAN & IS HURTING YOU !!!

What follows is EASILY the most important discussion I have EVER had for The Liberty Beacon Special program. If this recorded discussion does not scare the hell out of you, make you insanely angry with good reason and fully awaken you to what many of us  have long suspected … You need to check yourself for a pulse.

Dr. David Lewis is an internationally recognized research microbiologist whose work in public health and environmental issues as a senior-level Research Microbiologist in EPA’s Office of Research & Development, and member of the Graduate Faculty of the University of Georgia has been reported in numerous news articles and documentaries from Time Magazine and Reader’s Digest to National Geographic. He is the only EPA scientist to publish first-authored articles in Nature, Lancet, and Nature Medicine.

Dr. David Lewis  worked with the EPA and CDC for 30 years plus. He explains in shocking detail why Americans have fallen from one of the healthiest to the sickest society on this planet in a few short generations, our health and that of our children literally sold out from under us for the proverbial 30 pieces of silver …

Listen as he describes the fall of these agencies from beneficial science to abject cronyism and corruption, knowingly putting the lives of millions of Americans in jeopardy. Listen as he describes policy morphing from good beneficial science to scientific data intentionally altered and falsified, only to the benefit of powerful corporations and government policies.

Listen as he explains how scientists are made to rat out their colleges (told to wear a hidden mic) for objecting to corrupt government policies or lose their jobs resulting in a mass exodus of highly qualified and valuable scientists and researchers from the stated government agencies.

Listen in horror as he explains how this government is putting sludge a MILLION times more toxic (FACT) than any polluted water or air in our parks, in our children’s school playground and in your organic garden, knowing full well the ultimate danger this presents to us all! THIS IS A DOCUMENTED FACT!

YES, Vaccines Known to be highly toxic and harmful via the very research he and his colleagues painstakingly performed, ARE being pushed on an unsuspecting population.

And a foray by Dr. Lewis into his in-depth involvement in the Dr. Andrew Wakefield defamation saga.

THIS IS NOT A JOKE !!! All we suspect and rail against in the area of health tyranny is brought to light by a soldier who fought, and continues to fight on the front lines of this battle against the ultimate health tyranny. We The People are being deceived and poisoned in a fashion that will tear the anger from your heart by the very government agencies and politicians WE fund and elect to protect us from this evil.

If you want the Blatant Un-exaggerated Truth … So be it … here it is, but … CAN YOU HANDLE THE TRUTH ???

Because if you can …You CAN’T afford to miss this !!!

TLB Note: This interview was recorded by cell phone and while the audio is not perfect,  it is perfectly understandable and once this blatant discussion begins and your blood begins to boil …  you won’t even notice the sound quality!

How the EPA Faked the Entire Science of Sewage Sludge Safety: A Whistleblower’s Story

flying-pig-400x350[1]

By: Roger Landry (TLB)

I can remember as a child my proud father (who fought against what he considered tyranny in both WWII and Korea) saying to my siblings and I … We will lose our freedom and be ruled by tyranny in America … WHEN PIGS FLY !!!

Well look around you … The Fundamental Transformation promised to America is progressing at breakneck speed, and momentum, with …

Untold numbers (literally) of illegal’s pouring across our borders, unchecked, into a nation that is broke and unable to afford them, literally transforming our very society.

Unlimited and un-called for hostilities being perpetrated across the planet with no end in sight, draining our coffers at a time when we can’t even take care of our own.

Endless cronyism, corruption and corporatism haunting the halls of Congress in a perpetually expanding cycle.

GMO’s, Chemtrails and Vaccines poisoning the entire population with no escape, leaving America the sickest society on this planet.

And Banksters who benefit from all of this with the GREED of a PIG … beyond comprehension and any conscience … to the point of nonexistence.

This is the ACTUAL change, the Fundamental Transformation promised Americans and delivered in spades … only it is not the change eluded to. No, what we are seeing is a total regimen of all promised and nothing delivered or in actuality the exact opposite of the reality initially presented and promised to We The People by the Obama Administration…

My administration will be the most open in history, and our fundamental decision making will be televised live on CSPAN … Actually delivered just the Opposite.

I will get this runaway spending and soaring deficit under control and rein in this government … Actually delivered just the Opposite.

We will invest in shovel ready projects to put many Americans back to work … Actually delivered just the Opposite.

Through fiscal responsibility we will turn this economy around…. Actually delivered just the Opposite.

I will put an end to these illegal and immoral wars … Actually delivered just the Opposite.

I will put an end to the excessive intrusion of big government into our personal lives … Actually delivered just the Opposite.

I will get GMO’s labeled because Americans deserve to know what they are eating … Actually delivered just the Opposite.

Large Corporations should not and will not receive special treatment from this government … Actually delivered just the Opposite.

A president’s job, my job,  will be to enforce the laws and defend the Constitution … Actually delivered just the Opposite.

It would seem … damn near … EVERY promise, for every wish We The People expressed during the time of the building of false hopes, has been turned on its head to ram exactly the opposite down our over-trusting (or trust through ignorance) throats regardless of the fact that America is fatally choking on this tyranny

Every candidate makes some, a few, promises out of the many, that he or she is well aware cannot be fulfilled … this is after all still politics … BUT this administration has raised the bar on the issuance of blatant lies to such a lofty height that competing to equal or raise  it in the future will be all but impossible. Or have they merely just established the new standard for the bar going forward?

Yet we must always be fair because there are in fact several truths uttered from this disreputable source of so many lies … those being:

We are only days away from the Fundamental Transformation of America … Deliverd 100% on this promise.

Under my administration the cost of energy in America will Skyrocket … Deliverd 100% on this promise.

Gee this list of truths is nowhere near as impressive as the above list of blatant lies (which is only a partial list), but in keeping with the theme of this commentary … they are just as damaging and damning for America as the lies.

Transformation is the key here and this mechanism has facilitated the changing of something we (us baby boomers) all grew up proud of, unafraid of and happy to be associated with, into something ugly, demeaning, selfish, and something to fear.

Now please understand you and I can easily see and understand this and the true media reports on this daily and consistantly … while the MainStream Media ignores this in a show of complicity that should rock the foundation of this country. A free people without a free press … is only a people fooling themselves into thinking they are free, while being governed by those who have entirely too much to hide!

This transformation is now being literally burned into the thoughts and perceptions of We The people and those who look upon us from across this globe … seeing the morphing of our proud national symbol, the Bald Eagle, into something that most give very little respect to or affection for … a Pig … and observing with sadness and reservation … as …

PIGS FLY !!!

HOLD THAT THOUGHT …

Mona Lidji Fishman is great friend of The Liberty Beacon project, a devout patriot and serious Ron Paul devotee! But where most of us put our thoughts to print or picture, Mona’s talent lies in a different medium, namely music production. This video is so appropriate to this commentary that to not have included it would have done a serious injustice to the entire presentation!

TLB would like to showcase Mona’s unique talent by presenting and promoting this YouTube video.

This music production is great and very entertaining but is enhanced with a great pictorial presentation that is highly entertaining to observe. This production features the band “Randonymous” performing the song “Bald Eagle to a Pig” …

Glyphosate-on-Modified-Monsanto-Logo[2]

By: Roger Landry (TLB)

We all discuss the multitude of problems and issues and many of us beat them into the ground, but rarely is a real, doable, practical solution presented … What you see below is such a solution …

Monsanto’s Roundup and its active ingredient Glyphosate is a blight on humanity and the biosphere. This is a peer reviewed FACT … not a guess or a supposition. This is the most widely utilized bio-toxin on this planet today with direct ties to cancer, kidney disease, gastronomical maladies, infertility etc… The list is long and foreboding! If our very own governments wont step up to the plate and do what we elect them to do … protect us from known harms … then we will take this upon ourselves.

TLB had the absolute privilege to record a discussion with one such individual who intends to make a difference REGARDLESS of, and IN-SPITE of the corruption, cronyism and general push-back from said governments.

The Liberty Beacon Special Presents: Tony Mitra

(Click on the above blue text to listen to this recorded show)

A retired Marine Engineer, ship management executive, and consultant.

Also, a podcaster, videographer, science interviewer, citizen journalist, food security activist and a public speaker.

Alarmed at the intrusion of dangerous elements into our food web, and environment, through new and dangerous models of Industrial agriculture, which is believed directly linked to deep rooted corruption in the political system of nations.

Cleaner environment, cleaner food, independent science and education, free press, even sovereignty of nations and their political independence are all under attack by a handful of very powerful corporations that aim to own everything that lives and breathes on this planet.

Solution to this can only happen through global movement of citizens, by people waking up and booting the rogue politicians off their government, en mass if need be, and being directly involved in turning their country into what the people want their country to be, not what Monsnato likes their country to be.

The Project

Nationwide Glyphosate Testing

Testing how much of Monsanto’s Roundup has gotten into our water, in our food and in our body.

Health Canada or Environment Canada has not done mass test on how much of Monsanto’s Roundup has gotten into human body fluids, nor has it set up labs that can do this test:

  • I have written to Federal Govt about it directly and through MPs (http://www.tonu.org/2014/05/29/atamanenko/).
  • We have located labs in the US that are willing to conduct mass test for Glyphosate at bulk quote of around $20 plus shipping.
  • There are some financially challenged that cannot afford that money, and are eating unhealthy food suspected laced with Glyphosate, which is practically in every food that is not organic.
  • This funding is to help them to test their urine and breast milk for nursing mothers. Breast milk, unfortunately, cannot yet be tested cheaply. It costs upward of US$ 100 per test.
  • Walmart, Safeway and other food stores do not respond when we asked about testing their food to check if Glyphosate is present in their food. So this funding is to test their random sample of food.

What we plan to do and what you will see

We intend to pay ourselves, those that can afford, for testing our own urine, drinking water and food, and then use the funds here to test a vast number of the poorer people that cannot afford to eat Organic, as well as from common food sources such as what is sold in food stores :

  • Bulk test packages involve at least 96 samples in each batch, costing around US$ 1400 plus transportation charge to send 96 samples, by currier service. So with $5000 we hope to do at least three batches of poor people, covering almost 300 samples, involving perhaps 200 people and a hundred more of food samples, soil, water etc.
  • We intend to place the results on the web, without individuals identity, to see where Canada stands with regard to intrusion of Glyphosate into regions, into different age groups, gender, eating style etc!
  • The funds will be used to make bulk payment to labs in the US that are able and willing to do these tests economically, while we continue to search for a lab, somewhere in Canada that can do similar tests, hopefully in comparable costing, though we have not located even one in Canada so far.

The Impact

The final results, hopefully coming in from all over Canada, totalling hundreds and hundreds of tests, perhaps even thousands, makes it a broad range analysis and will hopefully provide a more detailed picture of how much of the dangerous pesticide has gotten into us:

  • As far as we know, no other place in the planet has done this kind of large scale test before, either by Government or by the people, although Moms Across America did conduct a limited test of under a hundred samples, which already proved presence of Glyphosate even in the breast milk of some nursing mothers. A lot of folks are waiting to see how the results turn out for Canada.
  • We have not used Indigogo before, though we have used volunteer funding and are using it for a cross Canada talking tour on Food Security by retired genetic engineer Dr. Thierry Vrain, and myself (https://www.facebook.com/pages/GE-Foods-Tour/39…)
  • People are encouraged to write to me for more details – tony.mitra@gmail.com.

Joining the movement

If you are interested to join the movement as a volunteer, or a regional coordinator, or a candidate for testing yourself, or know someone that shoudl be tested, do contact us, especially where

  • You are sick from damaged gut bacteria, or through Crohn’s, Celiac, leaky gut, autism, bowl disfunction, obesity or depression.
  • Once the data starts coming in, we intend to turn the testing into a political movement, to force the health care division of the Government to confront these issues instead of continue to accept ever increasing quantities of toxicity in our food, our land, our water and in ourselves.

 

Other Ways You Can Help

Some people just can’t contribute, but that doesn’t mean you can’t help:

  • Volunteer for us – to round up more people that can pay for their own tests.
  • People you might know that might like to contribute to the cause, no matter how small the amount!

TLB: Understand if this can be done in Canada (our brothers and sisters) it can easily be successful in America! Please contact me (Roger Landry) if you wish to see this project carried over into the USA … It’s time to get SERIOUS !!!

 

TLB: Please visit here: INDIEGOGO to donate to this vital project, for your health, the health and well-being of your loved ones, your childrens future and and the future of this planets biosphere. You want solutions not just talk … then be active and support this solution! Be a part of providing the absolute truth that cannot be ignored. Time is truly of the essence !!!

If you think warfare is spontaneous, linked to the trials and tribulations of one country vs another or as is often eluded to … a benevolent action to rescue an enslaved or brutalized population from a despotic leader … you probably still believe in the Easter Bunny. Wars are a tool for both control and profit in a scenario where the winners are the large global financial institutions and the Military Industrial Complex. And the undisputed losers are the hundreds of millions who have died under false premises and the blatant lies of their leaders who, in many cases only serve these Elitist Oligarchs

If you think, as we are often told, that war has spread across the Middle East in a progressive fashion tied to protracted events as they unfold and mature … how does the Kool-aid taste? America was destined to invade and occupy the Middle East since the mid 1990′s and some say even earlier. What was always missing was a catalyst … a reason to gain the willing support of We The People and keep us engaged via the mechanisms of patriotism and fear. This my friends was 9/11 and within days (not weeks) plans already many years old were being dusted off to occupy a resource-rich and strategically important segment of this globe

The end result of this plan of ultimate tyranny was/is the enriching of the already mega-rich, the institution of additional central style banks controlled by the elitist financial global Robber Barons, the control of strategic lands and resources and the elimination or fatal weakening of the unwanted and unwashed masses who may stand in the way of the accomplishment of the aforementioned plans.

What we elude to here is not an easy pill to swallow if this is your first foray into … REALITY! So we present just one scenario (there are many if you look) centered on a career military person, one who had the means and wherewithal to be in the know. Ask yourself this … as shocking as this revelation is, as blatantly as it exposes the complicity of our government and military with the global corporatist elite … what would the General have to gain by making this up … and why does it fit the past and ongoing policy we see in play half way around the world

We start with General Wesley Clark making the claim that America underwent a “policy coup” at the time of the 9/11 attacks

In the video presented here, Gen. Clark reveals that, right after 9/11, he was privy to information contained in a classified memo: US plans to attack and remove governments in seven countries over five years: Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Iran. Gee, do these countries sound familiar?

He was told by Pentagon sources: “We learned that we can use our military without being challenged …. and we’ve got about five years to clean up the Soviet client regimes before another superpower comes along and challenges us.”

“This was a policy coup … these people took control of policy in the United States …”

Just who are “these people”? Hmmm could they be those who stood the most to gain in both wealth and power?

And clean up what about the ex-Soviet client regimes? None had eyes on attacking the US, none had the means to even pose a threat to the worlds only remaining superpower. … No my friends, it was never about what we had … it was always about what they had … and the puppet masters wanted!

Please watch this video and understand this is the point in American history when tyranny accelerated exponentially against not only those countries listed, but also against We The People with ramifications never conceived of before. And all as a result of the massive lies perpetrated by “those Who Would Play God” by using the tyranny of war against the ignorance of men !!!

Mr. President why cant you admit you are in over your head? Why cant you admit that from the disaster in Libya, the disaster in Afghanistan, and now the ISIS disaster in Iraq, you are blatantly ill equip to lead this country as its Commander in Chief.

After almost 14 years of hostility in Iraq, millions of dead innocent civilians, thousands of dead American military and the almost total destruction of what used to be considered a modern country’s infrastructure, you stand by in a stupor of indecisiveness as a gang of ultra radicalized Jihadists thugs marches across Iraq towards Baghdad leaving a swath of death and destruction, hell bent on pushing the infidels out and swearing to bring death and destruction to America.

Well I could continue to rant but I will defer to one who does it so much better than I … Please watch this video …
