Capitalism vs. Commonwealth

Capitalism vs. Commonwealth
The wealthy class– bankers, finance speculators, commercial GMO farmers and all the other economic controllers–have adopted a completely opposite way of life than working class Americans: every person for himself is how the wealthy class operates. This way of life has trickled down to the average citizen as well. We no longer have a commonwealth where people work for the benefit of the community and the country as a whole. The capitalist world view of the wealthy class sees states and its communities as a system of exchange between producers and consumers, “the moneyed” and workers. The holy of holies for the banker class is the “free market” ideology, according to which each man pursues only his own self-interest. Society is held together, not on the basis of common welfare, but by the “invisible hand of the controlled market” implemented through impersonal UCC contracts and admiralty law of our court system.

The zenith of the system is the Bank for International Settlements in Basle, Switzerland; a private bank owned and controlled by the world’s central banks which are themselves private corporations including the federal reserve. The growth of financial capitalism made possible a centralization of world economic control and use of this power for the direct benefit of financiers and bankers with the indirect injury of all other economic groups.” Global capitalism, as it currently stands, does not work for the benefit of the people as a whole but, and does for the elite would be world rulers. The system works only to increase the wealth of the elite and when more wealth and power is needed the wealth gets transferred from the tax payers to bankers and corporations of Wall Street. Well known as the bail out exchange.

The so called founding fathers of the United States had a hand in creating the problems that stares us in the face today. Delegates to the Constitutional Convention were instructed that their only job was to amend the Articles of Confederation. Any proposed changes were to be supported by all the states before they were implemented. A conspiratorial cabal, led by Hamilton and Madison with other convention members, had already decided that they would abandon the Articles of Confederation and write an exclusively new constitution. The constitution they wanted would create a powerful centralized government controlled by the rich land owners, themselves included. The Convention met entirely in secret, and it would be fifty-three years before American citizens were allowed to see the record of what had transpired in this coup d’etat which enshrined predatory capitalism as the enforced way of life for U.S. citizens.

The Constitution these cabal conspirators plotted effectively created an economic document making property the foremost wealth. This made it near impossible for the common people or working class to have any political clout and gave the minority capitalist wealthy land owner class political power. The constitution contains to checks and balances against plutocratic corporate power and essentially gave private corporate control of government. Today it’s still in effect, don’t pay your property taxes and see how much you own. Read your property deed and you’ll see your only a tenant on state owned land.

The cabalist crafters of the constitution knew damn well the popular majority in the states would not go along with their oligarchic document. The framers developed a provision that would have the constitution go into effect when only ratified by nine states. They lined in all up with dirty deeds to ensure its ratification. They pushed for rapid election of state delegates that where sympathetic to the “constitution.” Members of state conventions that where aware of con job where harassed by federalist whom paid dirty trick operatives. Only one-fourth of the adult males in America were allowed by property requirements and other restrictions to vote on delegates to the ratification convention. Politics of the late 18th century weren’t much different than now, lies and deceit were as common then as today. Most is not as it seems.

“The decayed condition of American democracy is difficult to grasp, not because the facts are secret, but because the facts are visible everywhere. American democracy is in much deeper trouble than most people wish to acknowledge. Behind the reassuring facade, the regular election contests and so forth, the substantive meaning of self-government has been hollowed out. What exists behind the formal shell is a systemic breakdown of the shared civic values we call democracy.

“At the highest levels of government, the power to decide things has instead gravitated from the many to the few, just as ordinary citizens are becoming to suspect. Instead of popular will, the government now responds more often to narrow webs of power – the interests of major economic organizations and concentrated wealth and the influential elites surrounding them.

“In place of a meaningful democracy, the political community has embraced a permissive culture of false appearances. Government responds to the public’s desires with an artful dance of symbolic gestures – hollow laws that are emptied of serious content in the private bargaining of Washington. Promises are made and never kept. Laws are enacted and never enforced.”
Greider. (1992). Who Will Tell the People?

The history we are taught from grade school thorough college is not what we think it is. True history is hidden and manipulated to keep the people in the dark. We are slaves to the system, that’s the way our masters planned it and strife to maintain it.
Go back to sleep and forget you ever read this, “NOW”.

For Whom the Bell Tolled

Assassinations:

president

When you look at a list of the people that committed assassinations you have to wonder where the notion came from, where they set up as patsy’s. More or less put up to their despicable deeds done dirt cheap, by an inside/outside source.  Not committed on their own accord. Will we ever know, No, their dead. At the same time we have to ask our self’s what about the witnesses of certain modern day events. Have they been suicided or disappeared due to the official story? Again, we will never know, dead men don’t speak.

A very solid segment of the below listed culprits have been proven to of had an in/outside influence. Such as governmental cabinet members and cia /fbi agents or unknown agencies involved with the banking cartels and members of the secret second government (black ops).  Some even said to be part of the MK-Ultra (mind control 1960/80’s) project to carry out a specific mission. How do we know? We don’t.

What follows is what I think is an interesting list of assassination or attempted assassination history. This is a primer to do your own investigation into the unknown history we didn’t learn in the controlled public dumb us down schools.

20th Century:

Giuseppe Zangara (F. Roosevelt, 1933) was born Sept. 7, 1900, in Italy, immigrated at age 23. Even by assassins’ standards he was short, just 5” Don’t forget the “New Deal” was a really a “RAW DEAL”.  It changed our free country as  much as the tyrant Lincoln did. Did Zangara know this and was used for the event.

Oscar Collazo and Griselio Torresola (Truman, 1950), born 1915 and 1927 respectively, were both Puerto Rican. Collazo was the youngest of 14. Both came to the U.S. , Collazo after his father’s death, to work; Torresola, at 18, to work for the Nationalists. Both were short by U.S. standards, but typical of smaller statured Puerto Ricans, Collazo 5’6” and Torresola 5’5”. Both had daughters from 1st marriages. Both knew extreme poverty. Did they lose family during the war?

Lee Harvey Oswald (J.F. Kennedy, 1963) was born Oct. 18, 1939, in New Orleans, of medium height, slight build. The 3rd child of 3, born to two fathers. His father died before he was born. His mother, who married, separated, reconciled, then divorced while Lee was young, found the children too much for her, sent them to orphanages, boarding schools, and finally the military. Oswald, was killed by Jack Ruby (Rubenstein) a Zionist mafia night club owner  before standing trial. The Warren Commission was called to investigate Kennedy’s death and found that Oswald had acted alone to kill Kennedy, we now know different. JFK made a lot of enemies by trying to do better for the union of states, particularly with the central banking system and Israel nuclear weapons program, which they have at least 400 now and have not signed any treaties.

James Earl Ray ( M.L.King, Jr., 1968), born Mar. 10, 1928, on the Illinois/Missouri border, of the American “poor white” parents; his father was an escaped prisoner; thus, they moved around a lot. Ray was very small; once squeezed through blades of fan to rob a bar. He had a few casual relationships, but the only close friends were his brothers; a loner, the 1st of 9 children. It has now come to light the cia was heavily involved. King was murdered because the trouble he was causing with the vote manipulation. Believe it or no,t the US did not want black votes counting in an election.

Sirhan Sirhan (R. Kennedy, 1968), was born Mar. 19, 1944, in Jerusalem to Palestinian Christians. His father was a successful civil servant, until Jerusalem was taken by Israel. The family had to flee, becoming refugees for 9 years before coming to U.S., when Sirhan was 14 the 5th of 7 children. Their father abandoned them and returned to Palestine. Again, we find inside maneuvering by governmental agencies. Bobby had plans to continue in his brothers footsteps.

Sara Jane Moore (Ford, 1975), born Feb. 13, 1930, Charleston, WV, American (half-Jewish) family, 2nd of 5 children. She was a short,slim, attractive young woman, dumpy as she grew older. She married 5 times, had 3 children (left with her parents),

John Hinckley (Reagan, 1981), born May 29, 1955, in Ardmore, OK, 3rd of 3 children; “short,” from 160 lbs to overweight; no real friendships or relationships apart from his obsession with actress Jody Foster. Reagan was shot because he wanted to know where the gold of Fort Knox was and what the hell was going on in area 51. He never mentioned either again, he was in his place.

Frank Corder (Clinton, 1994), born May 26, 1956, 2nd of 2 children. Recently divorced. Father died of cancer year before attempt. The Clintons have left a lot of bodies behind in their aftermath to the top. I’m surprised they have lived this long, with all those enemies.

Arthur Bremer (Wallace, 1972), born Aug. 21, 1950, in Milwaukee, short, pudgy, and a social outcast, no social skills and no successful relationships. He was 4th of 5 children of an alcoholic father and a mother, a “foundling,” ever emotionally distant. TPTB wanted him gone because he knew what was happening in the WH.

Leon Czolgosz  (William McKinley)  was shot two times by anarchist Czolgosz while the president was visiting the Pan-American Exhibit in Buffalo, New York on September 6, 1901. He died on September 14, 1901. Czolgosz stated that he shot McKinley because he was an enemy of working people. He was convicted of the murder and electrocuted on October 29, 1901.

19th century

Charles Guiteau, (James Garfield) In the spring of 1881, Guiteau, who had been a Republican Party supporter, became embittered after being refused a government job. He decided to assassinate President Garfield, and began tracking his movements. On July 2, 1881, Garfield was at a railroad station in Washington, D.C., planning to board a train to travel to a speaking engagement. Guiteau, armed with a large caliber revolver, came up behind Garfield and shot him twice, once in the arm and once in the back. I guess he couldn’t hold onto that large cal. Revolver.

John Wilkes Booth (Abraham Lincoln) On April 14, 1865, Lincoln was assassinated while attending a play at Ford’s Theater in Washington, D.C. Actor John Wilkes Booth shot him in the back of the head before jumping onto the stage and escaping to Maryland. Lincoln died on April 15th. April 26th, Booth was found hiding in a barn which was set on fire. He was then shot and killed. Eight conspirators were punished for their roles. Read “Lincoln , Unmasked” and you will know why.

Richard Lawrence, (Andrew Jackson) On January 30, 1835, Jackson was attending a funeral for Congressman Warren Davis. Lawrence, attempted to shoot him with two different derringers, each of which misfired. He was tried for the attempted assassination but was found not guilty by reason of insanity. He spent the rest of his life in an insane asylum. This sounds just like what happens today when the fbi foils a bombing plot, they set it up to look like the good guys.

History is a great subject as soon as you learn how to read between the lines.

On this date in 1865 the war ended and a new war began.

There was even more to “The War Between The states” then meets the eye. The states united changed drastically during and shortly there after. Prior to this war of aggression each state was it’s own country as determined by thats states constitutions. What we as Americans live in now as a country is not what you think it is. The people have been dumbed down to preserve our situation as what it is not. We are slaves to the bankers and will remain as such un til we decide and learn that the so-called money we use is nothing more than pieces of worthless paper. All wars are banker wars. The central bankers don’t fight in these wars, they finance both sides and let their slaves die for the riches they acquire. Those riches are then used to develop more power and control of vast amounts of people and their labor. Creating more wealth and power. We have to ask ourselves, what does the average person accomplish in their life time? We work most of our better years of life, raise families that will do the same giving much of their small wealth to the bankers and governments. It seems with every passing generation we lose more and more of self and well-being, to become controlled carbon forms of life and labor. It’s a sad time we live in.

The Victors Write the War History but Should Their Lies be Immortal?

Posted at: http://www.veteranstoday.com/

[Editors Note: I was 46 before I learned that Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation did not free a single slave anywhere. We are re-running Steve’s article for Confederate Heritage Month – April, 2013, because it is a classic ….Jim W. Dean]

                 … by  Steve Scroggins

The most persistent and pernicious Big Lie regarding the so-called “Civil War”— more properly called the “War to Prevent Southern Independence”— is this:

Noble and saintly Yankees fought the war to abolish slavery; evil Confederates fought to preserve it.

The historical record incontrovertibly refutes this Big Lie and yet it lives on, repeated incessantly by many who know better, and by many, many more who accept without challenge what they were taught in government schools.

The proverbial phrase “the victors write the history” was well-known well before the war.

In fact, General Patrick R. Cleburne, arguing for freeing slaves in exchange for military service, warned what would happen should the South’s bid for independence fail:

“… Every man should endeavor to understand the meaning of subjugation before it is too late. … It means that the history of this heroic struggle will be written by the enemy; that our youth will be trained by Northern school teachers; will learn from Northern school books their version of the War, will be impressed by all influences of history and education to regard our gallant dead as traitors, our maimed veterans as fit objects for their derision. …to establish sectional superiority and a more centralised form of government, and to deprive us of our rights and liberties.” –Major General Patrick Cleburne, C.S.A. (Jan. 2, 1864)

Cleburne’s warning was indeed prophetic. The Big Lie is the official myth taught in virtually every public school in the country. Jim Dean noted this above, and he even went to a fancy prep school for two years in Massachusetts.

It is the myth believed and repeated incessantly by most Americans who never looked any deeper than the textbook they were issued in junior high history class. And when FDR’s New Dealers migrated from government service to academia in Southern universities, they made sure the Big Lie was taught down here in the South.

The facts and the historical record, which we will review below, are widely and easily available, but unfortunately most Americans don’t see it as their duty to understand American history in more depth than was offered in the superficial, comic-book summary they heard in government schools.

“It is a testament to the effectiveness of 140 years of government propaganda that a 308 page book filled with true facts about Lincoln could be entitled “The Lincoln No One Knows.” It is not a matter of a poorly-performing government education system but quite the opposite:

The government schools have performed superbly in indoctrinating generations of American school children with a pack of lies, myths, omissions, and falsehoods about Lincoln and his war of conquest.

As Richard Bensel wrote in Yankee Leviathan, any study of the American state should begin in 1865. The power of any state ultimately rests upon a series of government-sponsored myths, and there is none more prominent than the Lincoln Myth.” –Thomas DiLorenzo, from The Unknown Lincoln

The Sons of Confederate Veterans has as its mission statement what is commonly called “The Charge,” issued by General Stephen Dill Lee, who was then the Commander General of the United Confederate Veterans.

The Charge is a reflection of Cleburne’s warning above, and a stated desire to keep alive the memory of the Confederate soldier’s true history and motivation and the founding principles he fought to defend.

” To you Sons of Confederate Veterans, we submit the vindication of the cause for which we fought; to your strength will be given the defense of the Confederate soldiers’ good name, the guardianship of his history, the emulation of his virtues, the perpetuation of those principles he loved and which made him glorious and which you also cherish.

Remember, it is your duty to see that the true history of the south is presented to future generations.” —Lt. General Stephen Dill Lee, Commander General, United Confederate Veterans, New Orleans, Louisiana, 1906

______________________________________

First, let’s establish HOW the war was started, then we’ll proceed to WHY.

South Carolina seceded December 20th, 1860. Major Robert Anderson, commanding U.S. forces in Charleston, moved the garrison in Fort Moultrie (Sullivan’s Island across the harbor East of Charleston proper) –which he deemed indefensible– to Fort Sumter in Charleston harbor. He made this move in stealth in the middle of the night on December 26th.

South Carolina officials were understandably infuriated, but Anderson refused to evacuate Sumter. President Buchanan was a lame duck; he didn’t want a war started on his watch, but refused to issue orders either way.

South Carolina officials made clear that the U.S. Army staying in Sumter was NOT an option and that resupply or reinforcements would be viewed as a hostile act.

On January 9th, an unarmed steamer, the Star of the West, approached Charleston harbor intent on reinforcing Sumter with more troops and ammunition (see diagram below). Charleston batteries fired warning shots near the ship and the Star of the West turned and fled.

By February, South Carolina had joined six other states in the Confederate States of America. Confederate officials pressed for the evacuation of Fort Sumter and Fort Pickens (Pensacola, FL). Buchanan stonewalled and the crisis escalated. Lincoln would inherit the crisis March 4th.

“[T]he Union … will constitutionally defend and maintain itself… In doing this there needs to be no bloodshed or violence, and there shall be none unless it be forced upon the national authority.

The power confided to me will be used to hold, occupy, and possess the property and places belonging to the Government and to collect the duties and imposts; but beyond what may be necessary for these objects, there will be no invasion, no using of force against or among the people anywhere.” –Abraham Lincoln, from inaugural address, March 4, 1861.

Lincoln essentially declared war in his inaugural address March 4th in which he promised not to invade or attack any one EXCEPT…EXCEPT to hold the forts and property of the U.S. government for the purpose of collecting tariffs. In essence, he was denying the right of secession and promising to invade the southern states and force them back into the Union.

Lincoln refused to meet with Confederate emissaries sent to negotiate full payment for U.S. properties now within the jurisdiction of the C.S.A. Secretary of State Seward gave mixed signals, suggesting that evacuation of the forts was likely — in fact, all senior U.S. military officers recommended immediate evacuation to Lincoln.

Instead, Lincoln ordered a flotilla of war ships with additional troops and supplies to Charleston, then advised Confederate officials that it was coming to “resupply” Sumter, “by force if necessary.”

Rather than wait for war ships and the greater likelihood of loss of life on both sides, the Confederates decided to force a surrender before they arrived. Anderson was given a final chance to evacuate Sumter, given a deadline and told when the bombardment would commence. He replied that he would not evacuate.

The bombardment commenced on April 12th and Anderson surrendered on April 14th due to fears the magazine (with powder and ordnance) would ignite. No one was killed during the bombardment and Anderson’s garrison was allowed to peacefully leave the fort .

Though he made force necessary, Lincoln had succeeded in provoking the Confederates to fire the first shots and it had the desired effect: it incited a war fever in the North. On April 15th, Lincoln called for 75,000 volunteers to invade the southern states to force their return to the Union, or as he phrased it, to quell “a rebellion.”

As a result of Lincoln’s call for a coercive force, four more states seceded in protest to join forces with the C.S.A. Virginia seceded April 17th and North Carolina, Arkansas and Tennessee followed in short order.

The stealthy taking of Fort Sumter was an act of war. The stated intention to insert more men and ammunition BY FORCE was another act of war. The bombardment of Fort Sumter to force its surrender was an act of war, but it was NOT the first act of war in the conflict.

________________________________________

Now, let’s review the WHY of the war.

There would have been no war if Lincoln had not ordered invasions and naval blockades of southern states. The southern states made known they wanted a peaceful separation. The answer to WHY the southern states fought the war is painfully obvious: Self Defense. Duh! Because their country was being invaded!

In the same Inaugural Address (March 4th, 1861) in which Lincoln promised to use force to collect the tariffs (protect U.S. tax revenues), Lincoln reiterated his previous statements that he had no intent, no lawful right and no inclination to interfere with slavery where it existed.

He went on to say that he supported the proposed Constitutional Amendment (the Corwin Amendment) that would constitutionally enshrine slavery beyond the reach of the U.S. Congress.

The proposed amendment reads as follows:

“No amendment shall be made to the Constitution which will authorize or give to Congress the power to abolish or interfere, within any State, with the domestic institutions thereof, including that of persons held to labor or service by the laws of said State.”
As noted earlier, Lincoln called for troops to launch an invasion April 15th. He ordered a naval blockade, and made various preparations for war beginning April 15th without a Congressional declaration of war. When Congress finally convened in July, it basically rubber-stamped his actions thus far.

But Congress also approved the Crittenden-Johnson Resolution on July 25th, specifically stating the purpose of the war was to reunite the southern states into the U.S.A. It was clearly stated the war’s purpose was to “preserve the Union” and NOT to overthrow or interfere with “the rights or established institutions of the states” (slavery). This unequivocal statement from Congress and Lincoln’s unequivocal support for the Corwin Amendment directly contradict the official Big Lie. But there’s more. As you’ll see below, Lincoln’s stated purpose remains the same 16 months into the war.

At this point (July 1861), it seems clear that if the Confederate States’ purpose was merely to “preserve slavery,” then its best option would have been to end hostilities and rejoin the Union. It was independence the South was committed to maintain and it was Southern Independence that the North intended to prevent by force if persuasion failed.
“My paramount object in this struggle is to save the Union, and is not either to save or to destroy slavery. If I could save the Union without freeing any slave I would do it, and if I could save it by freeing all the slaves I would do it; and if I could save it by freeing some and leaving others alone I would also do that.
What I do about slavery, and the colored race, I do because I believe it helps to save the Union; and what I forbear, I forbear because I do not believe it would help to save the Union.” –Abraham Lincoln, from letter to Horace Greeley, Aug. 22, 1862
___________________________________

Horace Greeley

Over 16 months after the war began (Aug. 22, 1862), Lincoln wrote to Horace Greeley of The New York Tribune, an open letter in response to a Greeley editorial, in which Lincoln essentially said that slavery was not relevant to the war.
He stated that his “paramount object” was to “preserve the union,” and that slavery had no bearing on the war effort.

This was just days before the Emancipation Proclamation extended the offer, once again, to preserve slavery if the southern states would simply lay down their arms and return to the Union.

The Emancipation Proclamation didn’t free any slaves in any territory controlled by the U.S. government. It was generally seen as a farce by both Americans and the British press.
“We show our sympathy with slavery by emancipating slaves where we cannot reach them and holding them in bondage where we can set them free.” —Secretary of State William Seward

“The Union government liberates the enemy’s slaves as it would the enemy’s cattle, simply to weaken them in the conflict. The principle is not that a human being cannot justly own another, but that he cannot own him unless he is loyal to the United States.” –London Spectator, 1862

Right up to very near the end of the war, the South could have saved slavery simply by returning to the Union. Independence was the southern goal.

General John B. Gordon, in his book Reminiscences of the Civil War (p. 19) summarized it this way:

General John B. Gordon

“But slavery was far from being the sole cause of the prolonged conflict. Neither its destruction on the one hand, nor its defense on the other, was the energizing force that held the contending armies to four years of bloody work.

I apprehend that if all living Union soldiers were summoned to the witness-stand, every one of them would testify that it was the preservation of the American Union and not the destruction of Southern slavery that induced him to volunteer at the call of his country.

….No other proof, however, is needed than the undeniable fact that at any period of the war from its beginning to near its close the South could have saved slavery by simply laying down its arms and returning to the Union.” —General John B. Gordon, from Reminiscences of the Civil War, page 19

The North’s primary purpose was to prevent southern independence. It’s the North that betrayed the Founding principle of “consent of the governed” from that celebrated secession document, the Declaration of Independence.
How can any American deny the right of secession and at the same time celebrate Independence Day and the principle it embodies? As Greeley put it in his editorial in the New York Tribune December 17th, 1860:

If the Declaration of Independence justified the secession of 3,000,000 colonists in 1776, I do not see why the Constitution ratified by the same men should not justify the secession of 5,000,000 of the Southerners from the Federal Union in 1861…

We have repeatedly said, and we once more insist that the great principle embodied by Jefferson in the Declaration of Independence that government derives its power from the consent of the governed is sound and just, then if the Cotton States, the Gulf States or any other States choose to form an independent nation they have a clear right to do it…

And when a section of our Union resolves to go out, we shall resist any coercive acts to keep it in. We hope never to live in a Republic where one section is pinned to the other section by bayonets.” —Horace Greeley, NewYork Tribune, Dec. 17, 1860.

In December of 1860 and January of 1861, many newspapers across the North and Midwest echoed Greeley’s sentiments to “let the South go in peace.” But the bankers, railroads and shippers soon informed the press of the financial implications of southern independence.

The editorial tune changed dramatically in February and March of 1861 to “No, we must NOT let the South go,” and “what about our shipping?” and “what about our revenue?” As the New York Times noted on March 30th, “We were divided and confused until our pockets were touched.” [ See Northern Editorials on Secession, Howard C. Perkins, ed., 1965 — See Sample editorials here. ]

All the powder keg needed was a spark to ignite a war. Lincoln sent the war ship flotilla to Charleston and it was on. Lincoln had his excuse.

There you have it. The North prevented southern independence because it threatened their financial interests. The South wanted independence for its own best interests, in the tradition of the American Founders. It sought peaceful separation, but fought in self-defense when invaded and blockaded.

The current best estimate for death toll of the war is 750,000 American soldiers and at least 50,000 southern civilians. Adjusted to current population, that’s the equivalent today of 8 million Americans dying in four years.

The Official Big Lie was created and maintained to obscure the overthrow of the Founding Principles, and the true motivations that resulted in tragic and unnecessary death on an epic scale.

The United Confederate Veterans – Reunion Time

Some reply fromthe author:

Steve Scroggins

Obviously, the war could have been worse.  Had the powers followed the Sherman plan, every last southern man, woman and child would have been wiped out.  Sherman famously said that “the only good Indian is a dead Indian.”  He wrote more or less the same thing about the southern people and it’s documented in The Offical Record of the Rebellion published by the U.S. Government.  Of course, the survivors would have scattered to the hills and a decades long guerilla war would have ensued.

Lincoln’s stated objective was to “preserve the Union” but his true objective (achieved!) was to effect a “total transformation” to borrow an Obama phrase.  He converted a decentralized republic of republics into a centralized empire ruled from D.C. that controlled the money and banks, that set about building the transcontinental railroad with taxpayer subsidy and established a police state mentality.  Trampling the Constituion at will, Lincoln shut down or destroyed newspapers at the drop of a hat.  He had thousands of northern citizens imprisoned without trial, at the nod of a head or snap of the fingers from the king’s men.  He had thousands of southern civilians bombarded, looted, burned out and left to starve.  He revelled in stories of their suffering; Sherman and Grant both noted that he always asked to hear such stories.

Lincoln was a tyrant in every way and yet modern Americans consistently rank him among the “greatest” presidents.  THAT is an indication of the staying power of the Lincoln Myth.  Adolf Hitler also warmly approved of Lincoln’s conduct and centralizing policies… Lincoln inspired Hitler and Marx.  The evidence is in Mein Kampf.  http://www.lewrockwell.com/dilorenzo/dilorenzo20.html

Socialism and centralization were the rage in Europe during our war and many refugees from the failed German revolution ended up in the U.S. Army.  The grandson of Francis Scott Key (author of the Star Spangled Banner), Francis Key Howard, was a Baltimore newspaper editor held as a political prisoner in Fort McHenry… and wrote of a Union officer with a thick German accent lecturing him on what it means to be a “good American.”  Howard was arrested for criticizing Lincoln in an editorial (Baltimore Exchange) — specifically he was criticizing Lincoln’s suspension of the Writ of Habeas Corpus (See Ex Parte Merryman).   Most of the Maryland legislature were also arrested to prevent their voting on secession.

What Americans hear in government schools, of course, is of Lincoln the “Great Emancipator” and Lincoln the “humanitarian.”

Steve Scroggins

In 1871, most southern states were still under military occupation, that happy time known as “Reconstruction.”  The years immediately after the war was the time when the southern states did not have “state” status… at least not until they ratified the “Reconstruction Amendments” at the point of a bayonet.  So how exactly can a state that is not really a state ratify anything?  The 14th Amendment was declared ratified when in fact it never met the requirements (3/4 of the states).  The 14th Amendment is often cited as the authority for all manner of trampling on state’s rights.

Incidentally, 1871 was the year when Nathan Bedford Forrest testified before Congress that he was not a member or founder, nor was he ever a leader of the Ku Klux Klan.  These members of Congress (Sherman, et al) were not friends of Forrest, but they were satisfied with the testimony.  That myth about Forrest lives on.

It was 1913 when the 16th Amendment to introduce an income tax was allegedly ratified.  Then the U.S. government designated the Federal Reserve Bank as the controller of U.S. currency and money supply.  Southerners had fought the establishment of central banks for decades after the founding, but after 1913, a cartel of international bankers were inside the henhouse.

Reeducated, are you?

Reeducated, are you?

It seems that everything is on track and the go ahead plans are good to go. There was the first WTC bombing attempt, the murrah building in OK city, the 911 WTC inside diabolical and a bunch of shooting spree incidence staggered throughout from the start. I’m talking about the execution of the complete destruction of a free society and the overall loss of liberty. You do know there is no turning back now; their plan for domination will come to a head in less than five years. It’s on the fast track because the PTB realize more and more average people are coming to their senses as you read this. You think you’re a slave now just wait a few years and you will really know what it means to be a numbered free range labor slave. Maybe you can even get a tag stapled to your ear. A big chuck of your hard earned currency is already taken without your consent through the irs and governmental illegal taxation. If you really dug into it you would find you don’t own anything you think you do. Strange how income disappears back into the cesspool from which it came. We as a people don’t know what it means to be totally free because we haven’t been since the War Between the States (countries).  Elections have been rigged for a predestined outcome to benefit those would be rulers of the world plan. BTW there is only one political party. The 99% will all be on the same level, poor and the 1% filling in as the ruling rich class. Your masters, so to speak. What a wonderful friggin country we live in. This is great place for those that just want to scrape by and keep their mouths shut. Everyone talks about fema reeducation camps, too late. I’ve been reeducated and it’s not the way they would like it to be. It’s the fed banking cartel, the corrupt government, 9-11, gun control, profit hoarding corporations and Wall Street, black cia ops, the false religions, the war on religion, Iranophobia,  ndaa, GMO food, government subsidized false flag attacks, the irs, Zionism, msm news, dumbed down education system, empire building, war on drugs, anything for a buck politicians, courts and corrupt judges, chemtrail spraying, population drugging, war on Muslims, haarp etc., etc. and all the other BS they throw at us. The only way they could reeducate me now is a bullet in the side of my head by a US government sponsored death squad. The plan of complete control is working flawlessly; the people are too dull to get it. And, that is all part of the plan. The masonic white and black checker balance is off the floor, we are the last out of four corners of the world to be conjured. The plan for our demise is approaching fast. Unless the good people of this once proud nation wake-up stand their ground our freedom and liberties will come to screeching halt. Is it too late for you to be reeducated to see what is really happening, I don’t know. Why don’t you find out for yourself? I do know one stage will lead to the next. I’ve been reeducated by the system and that may be part of their plan for civil unrest revolutionary war.

The Global War On Children: Physical And Mental Health Assault

Tuesday, 10 April 2012 00:43 Paul Adams
 

This article was written by Paul Adams and is the first part of a series originally published at Activist Post

In their quest to undo what is natural and good, the globalists have launched a war on children.  This war against children and innocent life is very real and must not be confused with contrived fake wars like the war on terror, war on drugs, and war on cancer.

Attack on Parental Consent

The globalists’ first line of attack is government usurpation of parental rights and reducing the age of consent for dangerous and unnecessary medical procedures.

Recently a paper entitled After-birth Abortion: Why Should the Baby Live? was published in the Journal of Medical Ethics. It argues that abortion should be extended to make the killing of newborn babies permissible, even if the baby is healthy.  The paper is another example of how the Rockefeller medical establishment is dominated by a eugenicist mindset.

Both fetuses and newborns do not have the same moral status as actual persons…  Killing a newborn should be permissible in all the cases where abortion is, including cases where the newborn is not disabled… Merely being human is not in itself a reason for ascribing someone a right to life. Indeed, many humans are not considered subjects of a right to life: spare embryos where research on embryo stem cells is permitted, fetuses where abortion is permitted, criminals where capital punishment is legal.

Not to be outdone by science fiction, new legislation in Australia is paving the way for children of any age to consent to sterilization without parental consent. The Bill states that if a psychiatrist determines that a child under the age of 18 years is ‘sufficiently mature’, they will be sterilized without any parental consent. There is no minimum age requirement so long as the child is deemed ‘mature’ enough by a psychiatrist.

The legislation, known as the Draft Mental Health Bill 2011, also allows 12-year-olds to consent to psychosurgery and electroshock. Other provisions call for children to be involuntarily detained if ‘suspected’ of mental illness and forcibly restrained.

Thus, the globalists’ political operatives in Australia are in favor of adopting the old eugenics policies of California and North Carolina during the early 1900s; Rockefeller/Carnegie polices that influenced Adolf Hitler and Nazi eugenics.

There is also an overt effort by governments to demonize children.  In Canada, the Manitoba government has plastered convenience stores and city buses in the province with 4×8-foot posters purporting to provide resources for parents.  However, the posters feature a child who looks satanically possessed, portraying parenthood as something to be avoided.  And if you decide to parent, clearly you need State assistance.

Also in Canada, one-sided TV shows promote euthanizing children with disabilities, in the name or ‘mercy.’   We must remember that in the Nazi context, ‘euthanasia’ represented a euphemistic term for a clandestine murder program which targeted mentally and physically disabled patients for systematic killing.

On August 18, 1939, the Reich Ministry of the Interior circulated a decree compelling all physicians, nurses, and midwives to report newborn infants and children under the age of three who showed signs of severe mental or physical disability. Beginning in October 1939, public health authorities began to encourage parents of children with disabilities to admit their young children to one of a number of specially designated pediatric clinics throughout Germany and Austria. The clinics were in reality children’s killing wards where specially recruited medical staff murdered their young charges by lethal overdoses of medication or by starvation.

In the United States, the Department of Health and Human Services announced that all student health care plans covering female college students in the United States must include coverage for free voluntary sterilization surgery.  Women of college age who do not attend school will also get free sterilization coverage whether they are insured through an employer, their parents, or some form of government-subsidized plan.

In England, children believed to be at risk of descending into a life of crime and aggression can and should be identified at the age of two, according to the Government’s ‘discipline expert’, Charlie Taylor.  Those children likely to ‘go off the rails’ should be sent to specialist behavioral institutions at the age of five to stop their bad behaviour escalating,’ said Taylor.

As a solution, Taylor calls for the most disruptive children to be sent to special centers to learn how to control their anger and get on with classmates before starting formal school.

‘It’s about training them how to be in school, how to behave properly in school, what the rules are, how to contain themselves, how to express themselves,’ he said.  In other words, nonconformists must be identified early, isolated, and re-educated/conditioned by State-licensed mental health professionals.

Vaccine Attack on Children

Health officials in the U.S, U.K, Canada, Australia and around the world are disregarding parents’ right to protect their children from dangerous vaccinations. Not only are public health entities habitually and deliberately failing to inform the public of their right to refuse vaccines in both school and work settings, but they are working towards mandatory vaccination protocols which will allow officials to conduct childhood vaccinations without any parental consent at all.

In fact, The RAND Corporation, known for war strategies and paid by pharmaceutical giant Sanofi Pasteur, outlined how to turn schools into drug-dealing vaccine clinics.

California lawmakers successfully attacked countless children as Governor Jerry Brown signed bill AB499 allowing 12-year-old children to consent to being injected with Gardasil vaccines without their parents’ knowledge. Gardasil has wrecked thousands of lives nationwide, even leading to over 49 deaths.

Starting with the Hepatitis B vaccine at birth, children are constantly bombarded by the medical establishment trying to inject them with dangerous toxins.  Vaccines have injured thousands if not millions of people and have been proven to contain the following: SV-40 cancer viruses, live polio, live avian flu virus, mercury (thimerosal) – especially in flu shots, aluminum, and squalene.

Fortunately, parents can currently refuse vaccines for their children in most states, but that right is now under attack.

With no mainstream media coverage, assembly bill (AB 2109) was submitted to the California Legislature by state assemblyman, Dr. Richard Pan (D-Sacramento), which will make it harder for parents to refuse to vaccinate their children. The bill was sponsored by powerful players within the medical establishment. If passed, parents who wish to opt their children out of vaccines would be required to bring with them on the day of public school enrollment a written statement from a medical doctor or conventional ‘health care practitioner’ that states they have been informed of the benefits and risks of vaccines and the communicable disease they are said to prevent.

If California falls like Washington State recently did with the loss of their philosophical exemptions, many other states will likely follow.

Fluoride and Diet Attack on Children

The war against children includes contaminating their food supply.  Nursery Water for Babies, a subsidiary of DS Waters, proudly adds toxic fluoride to drinking water marketed for children. Fluoride has been found to damage soft tissues (brain, kidneys, and endocrine system), as well as teeth (dental fluorosis) and bones (skeletal fluorosis). There are now 24 studies that show a relationship between fairly modest exposure to fluoride and reduced IQ in children.

Drinking fluoride causes bone cancer according to the Harvard School of Dental Health.

Top baby formula brands sold in stores contain alarmingly high levels of corn syrup and sugar. In light of rising rates of childhood obesity and diabetes, parents need to read labels carefully to protect their children’s health.  For example, the top five ingredients listed for Similac Sensitive Formula for Fussiness and Gas are: Corn Syrup Solids, Sugar (Sucrose), Milk Protein Isolate, High Oleic Safflower Oil, Soy Oil.

Soft drink conglomerates such as Coke and Pepsi target children with their marketing.  One can of Coke contains approximately 9 teaspoons of sugar and provides no nutritional value.

GMO Attack on Children

GM crops, most of which are produced by Monsanto and DuPont, also can harm children.  They first appeared in 1995, and today bio-engineered seeds are used in 81 percent of corn crops, 91 percent of soybean crops and 95 percent of sugar beet crops. Genetically modified foods are used in most processed foods and as feedstock for most cattle and chickens.

GMO soy has been linked to sterility and infant mortality in animals. Entire books and thousands of articles have been written about the dangers of GMO crops.
Eugenicist Bill Gates openly admits that he wants the world to have a lot less children.  He and his globalist friends have plans to reduce the world’s population. The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, purchased 500,000 shares in Monsanto in 2010 valued at more than $23 million.

School/College Dumb-Down Attack and Debt Slavery

Education is what remains after one has forgotten what one has learned in school. – Albert Einstein

As John Taylor Gatto and Charlotte Iserbyt have documented, the public school system is not a failure; it is tremendously successful in its intended purpose of deliberately dumbing children down. Public schooling is a monopoly that uses the police power of the State to guarantee its customers, as truancy laws make attendance mandatory.  The days of being productive while we learn things that interest us (master/apprentice) are over for those under eighteen years old, absent home schooling or unschooling.  The days of unnatural boredom and robotic memorization of lies to pass standardized tests will never end until forced public schooling ends.

Public schools now employ the national socialistic Prussian system to create human drones for the army, obedient workers for the mines and business, subordinated civil servants to government, and citizens conditioned to quietly obey authority figures like children in a classroom.  Our Prussian education teaches us not to question the system constructed by our shadowy rulers, consisting of the absurd left-versus-right divided-and-conquered political paradigm built on a sand foundation of debt-based fiat currency and fractional reserve banking.

Aside from the poor quality of the public education systems, many higher education students find themselves in student loan debt hell.  In 2010, the average college graduate had accumulated approximately $25,000 in student loan debt by graduation day. Americans have accumulated well over $1 trillion in student loan debt. That figure is higher than the total amount of credit card debt in the United States.  However, unlike credit card debt, student loans are almost never discharged in bankruptcy.

War Attack

War is a racket that kills and wounds children. It is a racket in which the profits are reckoned in dollars and control over the grand chessboard, while the losses are measured in lives.

Depleted uranium was used against the children of Iraq and will continue to injure and kill for many years to come. Napalm, Agent Orange and carpet bombing were used against children in the farming villages of Vietnam.  Nuclear bombs were used against the children of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.  Such examples are endless.

According to Professor R.J. Rummel of the University of Hawaii, Democide is the murder of any person or people by a government, including genocide, politicide, and mass murder.  Democide does not include soldiers killed in battle.  During the 20th Century (1900s) alone, Rummel calculates that government power was used to murder approximately 262,000,000 people, many of them children.

Wars are also used to justify absurd security measures such as airport naked body porno scanners, which condition children to cooperate with sex predators and accept abuse by authority figures.

In conclusion, the globalists have launched a multi-front war on the physical and mental health of children.  However, it is ultimately a conditioning program directed toward the whole of society in an effort to acclimate the population to the concept that children (our future) is valueless.  As we will see in the next two parts of this series, the conditioning program has many other levels that indicate a very disturbing endgame.

In t r o d u c t i o n: The following article was commissioned by the Christian Science Monitor in the spring of 1997. Despite much favorable comment from editors, and full documentation, the story remains unpublished by the Monitor. By any yardstick, this report was an award-winning scoop for any national paper. The report offers a glimpse into the history of fluoride, a bio-accumulative toxic that Americans ingest every day. The authors, Griffiths and Bryson, spent more than a year on research. With the belief that the information should be withheld no longer, the authors gave their report to Waste Not, and others, with a short note: “use as you wish.”

This introduction is taken from Waste Not #414 (September 1997) where the article was first published. The article went on to be nominated as the year’s 18th most censored story in the 1998 Project Censored Series.

 

Fluoride, Teeth, and the Atomic Bomb
by Chris Bryson & Joel Griffiths

 

Some fifty years after the United States began adding fluoride to public water supplies to reduce cavities in children’s teeth, declassified government documents are shedding new light on the roots of that still-controversial public health measure, revealing a surprising connection between fluoride and the dawning of the nuclear age.

Today, two thirds of U.S. public drinking water is fluoridated. Many municipalities still resist the practice, disbelieving the government’s assurances of safety.

Since the days of World War II, when this nation prevailed by building the world’s first atomic bomb, U.S. public health leaders have maintained that low doses of fluoride are safe for people, and good for children’s teeth.

That safety verdict should now be re-examined in the light of hundreds of once-secret WWII documents obtained by Griffiths and Bryson –including declassified papers of the Manhattan Project, the U.S. military group that built the atomic bomb.

Fluoride was the key chemical in atomic bomb production, according to the documents. Massive quantities of fluoride– millions of tons– were essential for the manufacture of bomb-grade uranium and plutonium for nuclear weapons throughout the Cold War. One of the most toxic chemicals known, fluoride rapidly emerged as the leading chemical health hazard of the U.S atomic bomb program–both for workers and for nearby communities, the documents reveal.

Other revelations include:

* Much of the original proof that fluoride is safe for humans in low doses was generated by A-bomb program scientists, who had been secretly ordered to provide “evidence useful in litigation” against defense contractors for fluoride injury to citizens. The first lawsuits against the U.S. A-bomb program were not over radiation, but over fluoride damage, the documents show.

* Human studies were required. Bomb program researchers played a leading role in the design and implementation of the most extensive U.S. study of the health effects of fluoridating public drinking water–conducted in Newburgh, New York from 1945 to 1956. Then, in a classified operation code-named “Program F,” they secretly gathered and analyzed blood and tissue samples from Newburgh citizens, with the cooperation of State Health Department personnel.

* The original secret version–obtained by these reporters–of a 1948 study published by Program F scientists in the Journal of the American Dental Association shows that evidence of adverse health effects from fluoride was censored by the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission (AEC) –considered the most powerful of Cold War agencies– for reasons of national security.

* The bomb program’s fluoride safety studies were conducted at the University of Rochester, site of one of the most notorious human radiation experiments of the Cold War, in which unsuspecting hospital patients were injected with toxic doses of radioactive plutonium. The fluoride studies were conducted with the same ethical mind-set, in which “national security” was paramount.

* The U.S. government’s conflict of interest–and its motive to prove fluoride “safe” — has not until now been made clear to the general public in the furious debate over water fluoridation since the 1950’s, nor to civilian researchers and health professionals, or journalists.

The declassified documents resonate with a growing body of scientific evidence, and a chorus of questions, about the health effects of fluoride in the environment.

Human exposure to fluoride has mushroomed since World War II, due not only to fluoridated water and toothpaste, but to environmental pollution by major industries from aluminum to pesticides: fluoride is a critical industrial chemical.

The impact can be seen, literally, in the smiles of our children. Large numbers of U.S. young people–up to 80 percent in some cities–now have dental fluorosis, the first visible sign of excessive fluoride exposure, according to the U.S. National Research Council. (The signs are whitish flecks or spots, particularly on the front teeth, or dark spots or stripes in more severe cases.)

Less-known to the public is that fluoride also accumulates in bones –“The teeth are windows to what’s happening in the bones,” explains Paul Connett, Professor of Chemistry at St. Lawrence University (N.Y.). In recent years, pediatric bone specialists have expressed alarm about an increase in stress fractures among U.S. young people. Connett and other scientists are concerned that fluoride –linked to bone damage by studies since the 1930’s– may be a contributing factor. The declassified documents add urgency: much of the original proof that low-dose fluoride is safe for children’s bones came from U.S. bomb program scientists, according to this investigation.

Now, researchers who have reviewed these declassified documents fear that Cold War national security considerations may have prevented objective scientific evaluation of vital public health questions concerning fluoride.

“Information was buried,” concludes Dr. Phyllis Mullenix, former head of toxicology at Forsyth Dental Center in Boston, and now a critic of fluoridation. Animal studies Mullenix and co-workers conducted at Forsyth in the early 1990’s indicated that fluoride was a powerful central nervous system (CNS) toxin, and might adversely affect human brain functioning, even at low doses. (New epidemiological evidence from China adds support, showing a correlation between low-dose fluoride exposure and diminished I.Q. in children.) Mullenix’s results were published in 1995, in a reputable peer-reviewed scientific journal.

During her investigation, Mullenix was astonished to discover there had been virtually no previous U.S. studies of fluoride’s effects on the human brain. Then, her application for a grant to continue her CNS research was turned down by the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH), where an NIH panel, she says, flatly told her that “fluoride does not have central nervous system effects.”

Declassified documents of the U.S. atomic-bomb program indicate otherwise. An April 29, 1944 Manhattan Project memo reports: “Clinical evidence suggests that uranium hexafluoride may have a rather marked central nervous system effect…. It seems most likely that the F component rather than the T is the causative factor.”

The memo –stamped “secret”– is addressed to the head of the Manhattan Project’s Medical Section, Colonel Stafford Warren. Colonel Warren is asked to approve a program of animal research on CNS effects: “Since work with these compounds is essential, it will be necessary to know in advance what mental effects may occur after exposure…This is important not only to protect a given individual, but also to prevent a confused workman from injuring others by improperly performing his duties.”

On the same day, Colonel Warren approved the CNS research program. This was in 1944, at the height of the Second World War and the nation’s race to build the world’s first atomic bomb. For research on fluoride’s CNS effects to be approved at such a momentous time, the supporting evidence set forth in the proposal forwarded along with the memo must have been persuasive.

The proposal, however, is missing from the files of the U.S. National Archives. “If you find the memos, but the document they refer to is missing, its probably still classified,” said Charles Reeves, chief librarian at the Atlanta branch of the U.S. National Archives and Records Administration, where the memos were found. Similarly, no results of the Manhattan Project’s fluoride CNS research could be found in the files.

After reviewing the memos, Mullenix declared herself “flabbergasted.” She went on, “How could I be told by NIH that fluoride has no central nervous system effects when these documents were sitting there all the time?” She reasons that the Manhattan Project did do fluoride CNS studies –“that kind of warning, that fluoride workers might be a danger to the bomb program by improperly performing their duties–I can’t imagine that would be ignored”– but that the results were buried because they might create a difficult legal and public relations problem for the government.

The author of the 1944 CNS research proposal was Dr. Harold C. Hodge, at the time chief of fluoride toxicology studies for the University of Rochester division of the Manhattan Project. Nearly fifty years later at the Forsyth Dental Center in Boston, Dr. Mullenix was introduced to a gently ambling elderly man brought in to serve as a consultant on her CNS research–Harold C. Hodge. By then Hodge had achieved status emeritus as a world authority on fluoride safety. “But even though he was supposed to be helping me,” says Mullenix, “he never once mentioned the CNS work he had done for the Manhattan Project.”

The “black hole” in fluoride CNS research since the days of the Manhattan Project is unacceptable to Mullenix, who refuses to abandon the issue. “There is so much fluoride exposure now, and we simply do not know what it is doing,” she says. “You can’t just walk away from this.”

Dr. Antonio Noronha, an NIH scientific review advisor familiar with Dr. Mullenix’s grant request, says her proposal was rejected by a scientific peer-review group. He terms her claim of institutional bias against fluoride CNS research “farfetched.” He adds, “We strive very hard at NIH to make sure politics does not enter the picture.”

Fluoride and National Security

The documentary trail begins at the height of WW2, in 1944, when a severe pollution incident occurred downwind of the E.I. du Pont du Nemours Company chemical factory in Deepwater, New Jersey. The factory was then producing millions of pounds of fluoride for the Manhattan project, the ultra-secret U.S. military program racing to produce the world’s first atomic bomb.

The farms downwind in Gloucester and Salem counties were famous for their high-quality produce — their peaches went directly to the Waldorf Astoria Hotel in New York. Their tomatoes were bought up by Campbell’s Soup.

But in the summer of 1943, the farmers began to report that their crops were blighted, and that “something is burning up the peach crops around here.”

Poultry died after an all-night thunderstorm, they reported. Farm workers who ate the produce they had picked sometimes vomited all night and into the next day. “I remember our horses looked sick and were too stiff to work,” these reporters were told by Mildred Giordano, who was a teenager at the time. Some cows were so crippled they could not stand up, and grazed by crawling on their bellies.

The account was confirmed in taped interviews, shortly before he died, with Philip Sadtler of Sadtler Laboratories of Philadelphia, one of the nation’s oldest chemical consulting firms. Sadtler had personally conducted the initial investigation of the damage.

Although the farmers did not know it, the attention of the Manhattan Project and the federal government was riveted on the New Jersey incident, according to once-secret documents obtained by these reporters. After the war’s end, in a secret Manhattan Project memo dated March 1, 1946, the Project’s chief of fluoride toxicology studies, Harold C. Hodge, worriedly wrote to his boss Colonel Stafford L. Warren, Chief of the Medical Division, about “problems associated with the question of fluoride contamination of the atmosphere in a certain section of New Jersey. There seem to be four distinct (though related) problems,” continued Hodge;

 

1. A question of injury of the peach crop in 1944.

2. A report of extraordinary fluoride content of vegetables grown in this area.

3. A report of abnormally high fluoride content in the blood of human individuals residing in this area.

4. A report raising the question of serious poisoning of horses and cattle in this area.

 

The New Jersey farmers waited until the war was over, then sued du Pont and the Manhattan Project for fluoride damage — reportedly the first lawsuits against the U.S. A-bomb program.

Although seemingly trivial, the lawsuits shook the government, the secret documents reveal. Under the personal direction of Manhattan Project chief Major General Leslie R.Groves, secret meetings were convened in Washington, with compulsory attendance by scores of scientists and officials from the U.S War Department, the Manhattan Project, the Food and Drug Administration, the Agriculture and Justice Departments, the U.S Army’s Chemical Warfare Service and Edgewood Arsenal, the Bureau of Standards, and du Pont lawyers. Declassified memos of the meetings reveal a secret mobilization of the full forces of the government to defeat the New Jersey farmers:

These agencies “are making scientific investigations to obtain evidence which may be used to protect the interest of the Government at the trial of the suits brought by owners of peach orchards in … New Jersey,” stated Manhattan Project Lieutenant Colonel Cooper B. Rhodes, in a memo c.c.’d to General Groves.

 

27 August 1945

Subject: Investigation of Crop Damage at Lower Penns Neck, New Jersey
To: The Commanding General, Army Service Forces, Pentagon Building, Washington D.C.

“At the request of the Secretary of War the Department of Agriculture has agreed to cooperate in investigating complaints of crop damage attributed… to fumes from a plant operated in connection with the Manhattan Project.”

Signed, L.R. Groves, Major General U.S.

 

“The Department of Justice is cooperating in the defense of these suits,” wrote General Groves in a Feb. 28, 1946 memo to the Chairman of the U.S. Senate Special Committee on Atomic Energy.

Why the national-security emergency over a few lawsuits by New Jersey farmers? In 1946 the United States had begun full-scale production of atomic bombs. No other nation had yet tested a nuclear weapon, and the A-bomb was seen as crucial for U.S leadership of the postwar world. The New Jersey fluoride lawsuits were a serious roadblock to that strategy.

“The specter of endless lawsuits haunted the military,” writes Lansing Lamont in his acclaimed book about the first atomic bomb test, “Day of Trinity.”

In the case of fluoride, “If the farmers won, it would open the door to further suits, which might impede the bomb program’s ability to use fluoride,” said Jacqueline Kittrell, a Tennessee public interest lawyer specializing in nuclear cases, who examined the declassified fluoride documents. (Kittrell has represented plaintiffs in several human radiation experiment cases.) She added, “The reports of human injury were especially threatening, because of the potential for enormous settlements — not to mention the PR problem.”

Indeed, du Pont was particularly concerned about the “possible psychologic reaction” to the New Jersey pollution incident, according to a secret 1946 Manhattan Project memo. Facing a threat from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to embargo the region’s produce because of “high fluoride content,” du Pont dispatched its lawyers to the FDA offices in Washington, where an agitated meeting ensued. According to a memo sent next day to General Groves, Du Pont’s lawyer argued “that in view of the pending suits…any action by the Food and Drug Administration… would have a serious effect on the du Pont Company and would create a bad public relations situation.” After the meeting adjourned, Manhattan Project Captain John Davies approached the FDA’s Food Division chief and “impressed upon Dr. White the substantial interest which the Government had in claims which might arise as a result of action which might be taken by the Food and Drug Administration.”

There was no embargo. Instead, new tests for fluoride in the New Jersey area would be conducted — not by the Department of Agriculture — but by the U.S. Army’s Chemical Warfare Service because “work done by the Chemical Warfare Service would carry the greatest weight as evidence if… lawsuits are started by the complainants.” The memo was signed by General Groves.

Meanwhile, the public relations problem remained unresolved — local citizens were in a panic about fluoride.

The farmer’s spokesman, Willard B. Kille, was personally invited to dine with General Groves –then known as “the man who built the atomic bomb” — at his office at the War Department on March 26, 1946. Although he had been diagnosed with fluoride poisoning by his doctor, Kille departed the luncheon convinced of the government’s good faith. The next day he wrote to the general, wishing the other farmers could have been present, he said, so “they too could come away with the feeling that their interests in this particular matter were being safeguarded by men of the very highest type whose integrity they could not question.”

In a subsequent secret Manhattan project memo, a broader solution to the public relations problem was suggested by chief fluoride toxicologist Harold C. Hodge. He wrote to the Medical Section chief, Col. Warren: “Would there be any use in making attempts to counteract the local fear of fluoride on the part of residents of Salem and Gloucester counties through lectures on F toxicology and perhaps the usefulness of F in tooth health?” Such lectures were indeed given, not only to New Jersey citizens but to the rest of the nation throughout the Cold War.

The New Jersey farmers’ lawsuits were ultimately stymied by the government’s refusal to reveal the key piece of information that would have settled the case –how much fluoride du Pont had vented into the atmosphere during the war. “Disclosure… would be injurious to the military security of the United States,” wrote Manhattan Project Major C.A Taney, Jr. The farmers were pacified with token financial settlements, according to interviews with descendants still living in the area.

“All we knew is that du Pont released some chemical that burned up all the peach trees around here,” recalls Angelo Giordano, whose father James was one of the original plaintiffs. “The trees were no good after that, so we had to give up on the peaches.” Their horses and cows, too, acted stiff and walked stiff, recalls his sister Mildred. “Could any of that have been the fluoride ?” she asked. (The symptoms she detailed to the authors are cardinal signs of fluoride toxicity, according to veterinary toxicologists.)

The Giordano family, too, has been plagued by bone and joint problems, Mildred adds. Recalling the settlement received by the Giordanos, Angelo told these reporters that “my father said he got about $200.”

The farmers were stonewalled in their search for information, and their complaints have long since been forgotten. But they unknowingly left their imprint on history — their claims of injury to their health reverberated through the corridors of power in Washington, and triggered intensive secret bomb-program research on the health effects of fluoride. A secret 1945 memo from Manhattan Project Lt. Col. Rhodes to General Groves stated: “Because of complaints that animals and humans have been injured by hydrogen fluoride fumes in [the New Jersey] area, although there are no pending suits involving such claims, the University of Rochester is conducting experiments to determine the toxic effect of fluoride.”

Much of the proof of fluoride’s safety in low doses rests on the postwar work performed by the University of Rochester, in anticipation of lawsuits against the bomb program for human injury.

Fluoride and the Cold War.

Delegating fluoride safety studies to the University of Rochester was not surprising. During WWII the federal government had become involved, for the first time, in large-scale funding of scientific research at government-owned labs and private colleges. Those early spending priorities were shaped by the nation’s often-secret military needs.

The prestigious upstate New York college, in particular, had housed a key wartime division of the Manhattan Project, studying the health effects of the new “special materials,” such as uranium, plutonium, beryllium and fluoride, being used to make the atomic bomb. That work continued after the war, with millions of dollars flowing from the Manhattan Project and its successor organization, the Atomic Energy Commission (AEC). (Indeed, the bomb left an indelible imprint on all U.S. science in the late 1940’s and 50’s. Up to 90% of federal funds for university research came from either the Defense Department or the AEC in this period, according to Noam Chomsky’s 1996 book “The Cold War and the University.”)

The University of Rochester medical school became a revolving door for senior bomb program scientists. Postwar faculty included Stafford Warren, the top medical officer of the Manhattan Project, and Harold Hodge, chief of fluoride research for the bomb program.

But this marriage of military secrecy and medical science bore deformed offspring. The University of Rochester’s classified fluoride studies — code- named Program F — were conducted at its Atomic Energy Project (AEP), a top-secret facility funded by the AEC and housed in Strong Memorial Hospital. It was there that one of the most notorious human radiation experiments of the Cold War took place, in which unsuspecting hospital patients were injected with toxic doses of radioactive plutonium. Revelation of this experiment in a Pulitzer prize-winning account by Eileen Welsome led to a 1995 U.S. Presidential investigation, and a multimillion-dollar cash settlement for victims.

Program F was not about children’s teeth. It grew directly out of litigation against the bomb program and its main purpose was to furnish scientific ammunition which the government and its nuclear contractors could use to defeat lawsuits for human injury. Program F’s director was none other than Harold C. Hodge, who had led the Manhattan Project investigation of alleged human injury in the New Jersey fluoride-pollution incident.

Program F’s purpose is spelled out in a classified 1948 report. It reads: “To supply evidence useful in the litigation arising from an alleged loss of a fruit crop several years ago, a number of problems have been opened. Since excessive blood fluoride levels were reported in human residents of the same area, our principal effort has been devoted to describing the relationship of blood fluorides to toxic effects.”

The litigation referred to, of course, and the claims of human injury were against the bomb program and its contractors. Thus, the purpose of Program F was to obtain evidence useful in litigation against the bomb program. The research was being conducted by the defendants.

The potential conflict of interest is clear. If lower dose ranges were found hazardous by Program F, it might have opened the bomb program and its contractors to lawsuits for injury to human health, as well as public outcry.

Comments lawyer Kittrell: “This and other documents indicate that the University of Rochester’s fluoride research grew out of the New Jersey lawsuits and was performed in anticipation of lawsuits against the bomb program for human injury. Studies undertaken for litigation purposes by the defendants would not be considered scientifically acceptable today, ” adds Kittrell, “because of their inherent bias to prove the chemical safe.”

Unfortunately, much of the proof of fluoride’s safety rests on the work performed by Program F Scientists at the University of Rochester. During the postwar period that university emerged as the leading academic center for establishing the safety of fluoride, as well as its effectiveness in reducing tooth decay, according to Dental School spokesperson William H. Bowen, MD. The key figure in this research, Bowen said, was Harold C. Hodge– who also became a leading national proponent of fluoridating public drinking water. Program F’s interest in water fluoridation was not just ‘to counteract the local fear of fluoride on the part of residents,’ as Hodge had earlier written. The bomb program needed human studies, as they had needed human studies for plutonium, and adding fluoride to public water supplies provided one opportunity.

The A-Bomb Program and Water Fluoridation

Bomb-program scientists played a prominent — if unpublicized — role in the nation’s first-planned water fluoridation experiment, in Newburgh, New York. The Newburgh Demonstration Project is considered the most extensive study of the health effects of fluoridation, supplying much of the evidence that low doses are safe for children’s bones, and good for their teeth.

Planning began in 1943 with the appointment of a special New York State Health Department committee to study the advisability of adding fluoride to Newburgh’s drinking water. The chairman of the committee was Dr. Hodge, then chief of fluoride toxicity studies for the Manhattan Project.

Subsequent members included Henry L. Barnett, a captain in the Project’s Medical section, and John W. Fertig, in 1944 with the office of Scientific Research and Development, the Pentagon group which sired the Manhattan Project. Their military affiliations were kept secret: Hodge was described as a pharmacologist, Barnett as a pediatrician. Placed in charge of the Newburgh project was David B. Ast, chief dental officer of the State Health Department. Ast had participated in a key secret wartime conference on fluoride held by the Manhattan Project, and later worked with Dr. Hodge on the Project’s investigation of human injury in the New Jersey incident, according to once-secret memos.

The committee recommended that Newburgh be fluoridated. It also selected the types of medical studies to be done, and “provided expert guidance” for the duration of the experiment. The key question to be answered was: “Are there any cumulative effects — beneficial or otherwise, on tissues and organs other than the teeth — of long-continued ingestion of such small concentrations…?” According to the declassified documents, this was also key information sought by the bomb program, which would require long-continued exposure of workers and communities to fluoride throughout the Cold War.

In May 1945, Newburgh’s water was fluoridated, and over the next ten years its residents were studied by the State Health Department. In tandem, Program F conducted its own secret studies, focusing on the amounts of fluoride Newburgh citizens retained in their blood and tissues – key information sought by the bomb program: “Possible toxic effects of fluoride were in the forefront of consideration,” the advisory committee stated. Health Department personnel cooperated, shipping blood and placenta samples to the Program F team at the University of Rochester. The samples were collected by Dr. David B. Overton, the Department’s chief of pediatric studies at Newburgh.

The final report of the Newburgh Demonstration Project, published in 1956 in the Journal of the American Dental Association, concluded that “small concentrations” of fluoride were safe for U.S.citizens. The biological proof — “based on work performed … at the University of Rochester Atomic Energy Project” — was delivered by Dr. Hodge.

Today, news that scientists from the atomic bomb program secretly shaped and guided the Newburgh fluoridation experiment, and studied the citizen’s blood and tissue samples, is greeted with incredulity.

“I’m shocked — beyond words,” said present-day Newburgh Mayor Audrey Carey, commenting on these reporters’ findings. “It reminds me of the Tuskegee experiment that was done on syphilis patients down in Alabama.”

As a child in the early 1950’s, Mayor Carey was taken to the old firehouse on Broadway in Newburgh, which housed the Public Health Clinic. There, doctors from the Newburgh fluoridation project studied her teeth, and a peculiar fusion of two finger bones on her left hand she had been born with. Today, adds Carey, her granddaughter has white dental-fluorosis marks on her front teeth.

Mayor Carey wants answers from the government about the secret history of fluoride, and the Newburgh fluoridation experiment. “I absolutely want to pursue it,” she said. “It is appalling to do any kind of experimentation and study without people’s knowledge and permission.”

Contacted by these reporters, the director of the Newburgh experiment, David B. Ast, says he was unaware Manhattan Project scientists were involved. “If I had known, I would have been certainly investigating why, and what the connection was,” he said. Did he know that blood and placenta samples from Newburgh were being sent to bomb program researchers at the University of Rochester? “I was not aware of it,” Ast replied. Did he recall participating in the Manhattan Project’s secret wartime conference on fluoride in January 1944, or going to New Jersey with Dr. Hodge to investigate human injury in the du Pont case–as secret memos state? He told the reporters he had no recollection of these events.

A spokesperson for the University of Rochester Medical Center, Bob Loeb, confirmed that blood and tissue samples from Newburgh had been tested by the University’s Dr. Hodge. On the ethics of secretly studying U.S citizens to obtain information useful in litigation against the A-bomb program, he said, “that’s a question we cannot answer.” He referred inquiries to the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), successor to the Atomic Energy Commission.

A spokesperson for the DOE in Washington, Jayne Brady, confirmed that a review of DOE files indicated that a “significant reason” for fluoride experiments conducted at the University of Rochester after the war was “impending litigation between the du Pont company and residents of New Jersey areas.” However, she added, “DOE has found no documents to indicate that fluoride research was done to protect the Manhattan Project or its contractors from lawsuits.”

On Manhattan Project involvement in Newburgh, the spokesperson stated, “Nothing that we have suggests that the DOE or predecessor agencies — especially the Manhattan Project — authorized fluoride experiments to be performed on children in the 1940’s.”

When told that the reporters had several documents that directly tied the Manhattan Project’s successor agency at the University of Rochester, the AEP, to the Newburgh experiment, the DOE spokesperson later conceded her study was confined to “the available universe” of documents. Two days later spokesperson Jayne Brady faxed a statement for clarification: “My search only involved the documents that we collected as part of our human radiation experiments project — fluoride was not part of our research effort.

“Most significantly,” the statement continued, relevant documents may be in a classified collection at the DOE Oak Ridge National Laboratory known as the Records Holding Task Group. “This collection consists entirely of classified documents removed from other files for the purpose of classified document accountability many years ago,” and was “a rich source of documents for the human radiation experiments project,” she said.

The crucial question arising from this investigation is: Were adverse health findings from Newburgh and other bomb-program fluoride studies suppressed? All AEC-funded studies had to be declassified before publication in civilian medical and dental journals. Where are the original classified versions?

The transcript of one of the major secret scientific conferences of WW2–on “fluoride metabolism”–is missing from the files of the U.S. National Archives. Participants in the conference included key figures who promoted the safety of fluoride and water fluoridation to the public after the war – Harold Hodge of the Manhattan Project, David B. Ast of the Newburgh Project, and U.S. Public Health Service dentist H.Trendley Dean, popularly known as the “father of fluoridation.” “If it is missing from the files, it is probably still classified,” National Archives librarians told these reporters.

A 1944 WW2 Manhattan Project classified report on water fluoridation is missing from the files of the University of Rochester Atomic Energy Project, the U.S. National Archives, and the Nuclear Repository at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. The next four numerically consecutive documents are also missing, while the remainder of the “MP-1500 series” is present. “Either those documents are still classified, or they’ve been ‘disappeared’ by the government,” says Clifford Honicker, Executive Director of the American Environmental Health Studies Project, in Knoxville, Tennessee, which provided key evidence in the public exposure and prosecution of U.S. human radiation experiments.

Seven pages have been cut out of a 1947 Rochester bomb-project notebook entitled “Du Pont litigation.” “Most unusual,” commented chief medical school archivist Chris Hoolihan.

Similarly, Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests by these authors over a year ago with the DOE for hundreds of classified fluoride reports have failed to dislodge any. “We’re behind,” explained Amy Rothrock, FOIA officer for the Department of Energy at their Oak Ridge operations.

Was information suppressed? These reporters made what appears to be the first discovery of the original classified version of a fluoride safety study by bomb program scientists. A censored version of this study was later published in the August 1948 Journal of the American Dental Association. Comparison of the secret with the published version indicates that the U.S. AEC did censor damaging information on fluoride, to the point of tragicomedy.

This was a study of the dental and physical health of workers in a factory producing fluoride for the A-bomb program, conducted by a team of dentists from the Manhattan Project.

*
The secret version reports that most of the men had no teeth left. The published version reports only that the men had fewer cavities.

*
The secret version says the men had to wear rubber boots because the fluoride fumes disintegrated the nails in their shoes. The published version does not mention this.

*
The secret version says the fluoride may have acted similarly on the men’s teeth, contributing to their toothlessness. The published version omits this statement.

The published version concludes that “the men were unusually healthy, judged from both a medical and dental point of view.”

Asked for comment on the early links of the Manhattan Project to water fluoridation, Dr Harold Slavkin, Director of the National Institute for Dental Research, the U.S. agency which today funds fluoride research, said, “I wasn’t aware of any input from the Atomic Energy Commission.” Nevertheless, he insisted, fluoride’s efficacy and safety in the prevention of dental cavities over the last fifty years is well-proved. “The motivation of a scientist is often different from the outcome, ” he reflected. “I do not hold a prejudice about where the knowledge comes from.”

After comparing the secret and published versions of the censored study, toxicologist Phyllis Mullenix commented, “This makes me ashamed to be a scientist.” Of other Cold War-era fluoride safety studies, she asks, “Were they all done like this?”

The Legacy of Jimmy Carter

 

THE LEGACY OF JIMMY CARTER

 

This man has been graded the worst president in American history. I agree, but I am a freedom loving, god fearing, conservative thinking person. If you are talking to a progressive/liberal, to them he is there hero and an icon to their movement of total government control and power over the population.

 

In the early seventy’s president Carter helped with the enhancement of the N.E.A (National Education Association) with the full intent to control what was being taught in our public school system with the motto one size fits all. A brilliant move that has come full cycle. The results, our next generation will not know how we achieved the freedoms this country experienced. Their ignorance of the past will make them subjects of a fascist state, and it only took less than fifty years. Indoctrination works. Otherwise we would not be in a crisis state of affairs. To the progressives, they would not have come this far without Mr. Carter’s vision. A true hero to the oppressors
