FREEDOM IS FIRE


FREEDOM IS FIRE

J. Croft

Freedom is fire.

Fire needs oxygen, fuel, room to expand.

Fire needs constant input of all three of these or it will die out.  Contain a fire and its supply of fuel will be spent.  Cut off from fresh oxygen and the flame is snuffed out.

Freedom is fire: fire that needs constant exercise, constant defense, and that there are no boundaries, no borders to contain that fire!  It’s a fire that requires all of us to keep that flame stoked and protected from the very forces that presume dominance over us because they are in positions of power and have forgotten that power also comes with responsibility-forget that and your public servants become your public masters.

The genius of the founding lawyers was to harness the fire of freedom, not extinguish it, to encase the flame in a document that while giving the image of promoting freedom instead promoted the federal government that would eventually contain that flame, and gradually choke it off.(1)

Oh, there’s still enough flame so that those who literally don’t know any better don’t suspect even as they have their livelihood choked off from all directions, locked in a losing battle against inflation, taxes, and the economic dismantling of their own nation. 

The 1787 constitution was designed to produce the very results we’re living through.  However, Americans have been progressively dumbed down by progressives that have running the NEA. (2) Television and the cartelization of mass media have produced in the mainstream American a hive-mind, everyone thinking alike as their very world view is shaped by… the very enemy that has been out to harness them as they’ve harnessed freedom and turned America into a sick parody.

Modern Americans have become as domesticated as the breeds of pigs they’re being ordered to shoot because some oath traitors throw their weight around.  Because those Americans dare to grow their own food-just like the organic farmers and yes, some hapless housewife growing some vegetables over a scar left by a pipeline dug by her public servants.

450,000,000 rounds of .40 hollow point ammunition purchased by the Department of Homeland Security.

Drones rapidly being integrated into law enforcement-really the domestic paramilitary forces.

TSA pedophiles expanding operations from the airports to bus stations, highways, groping-no, raping- children, cripples and the elderly as millions cross our borders effectively unimpeded.

Is there a need to reiterate the multifaceted tyranny of the enemy, the United States Government?  The millions of pages of law that all of us have unwittingly broken at one time or another, just waiting for a oath traitor to call us on like so many lawyer crafted landmines?   The millions of criminals wielding badges and guns-raw power-to impose someone else’s tyranny, for someone else’s profit just so as long as they can do the wielding. 

Americans… we were brought up with a false paradigm of how our own country operated-the two Americas.  We were lied to, that the America in our hearts, that we were brought up to believe in was the United States, the incorporation formed to administer a secret bankruptcy-some legal technicality to declare us slaves and steal what we work our entire lives for. 

That we don’t start wars when the US government wields power for itself and corporations in wars great and small all over the planet.  Even honest threats to America, like the USSR, Nazi Germany and Imperial Japan-all were financed and armed by Wall Street and the City of London banksters.  (3)

Freedom is the fire that has been harnessed and now only illuminates a caricature projected onto our plasma screens for those not willing to see the truth of the way things are.

…Of course, we in the Freedom Movement have pissed on the embers of what freedom is left in America.

As a movement we leave the heavy work to a few, a terrible American trait that has been exploited by profiteers, charlatans and enemy COINTEL agents.  We struggle against a centralized, controlled fraud and put the burden of regaining our Freedom to a few central players who are at best flawed, not up to the task of being the proverbial man on a white horse. 

At best, Ron Paul does not have a pair of blue tights and a cape, he could no more nod his head and blink and grant our Freedom back than he could stop his bobble head from shaking or attracting the kind of dirtbags who actively suppress genuine efforts to campaign for him.  Or get around to proclaiming himself the victim of vote fraud after two presidential campaigns when it’s in all our faces and he’s raked in millions for his own campaign fund.

Freedom requires all of us to wield that flame, as our ancestors did once they broke away from the merchants and freemasonic lords who imported them under indentured servitude-took a rifle and a few tools and their iron wills and headed westward beyond their control, and founded America.  Our America. 

They led themselves, policed themselves, educated themselves.  They didn’t put up with TSA pedophile rapists all over their loved ones or anyone else’s loved ones.  They would’ve made a bunch of DNS jackals literally disappear.  IRS “agents” would’ve been staked out in Indian Country.  Even the busybodies of local government would’ve been ran out literally on the nearest rail and told not to come back.  As late as 1946 that true American spirit came forth in a small town in Tennessee called Athens; veterans fresh from fighting tyranny in Germany and Japan face it down from the same kind of local turds that take power when the People forget that Freedom is to be forever guarded.

Did they whine to Alex Jones, prayed to Ron Paul for deliverance?  No they DID something: they organized a election campaign, had a full campaign ticket of candidates to do the job proper and sweep THEIR public offices clean of the traitors and criminals.  Yes the enemy committed fraud and took the ballot boxes at gunpoint: our heroes grabbed rifles and ammo from a National Guard armory and handled it.(4)

They handled their business.  We have to handle regaining our Freedom, to reignite that flame and torch this fraud called the United States, burn this motherfucker to the ground.

Our induced apathy has caused billions of people around the world to suffer under tyranny.  We as wielders of the fire of Freedom have an obligation to give that flame to people so they too can burn the tyranny out of their countries.  Only then can we as Man as a race can live in peace-peace through absolute and uncompromising Freedom tempered by a love for our fellow men strong enough to never again tolerate any infringement upon that Freedom.

We have to start somewhere though; start with yourself.  Stop obeying.  Get in shape, purify your body, your mind.  Develop a personal relationship with God Our Father and stop relying on preachers and televangelists or some author.  Knowing God is the beginning of wisdom.

Get armed and proficient in the use of your arms.  Get a rifle, ammunition, magazines, web gear and an airsoft replica.  Dry fire and practice loading and reloading your rifle, shoot your airsoft replica daily and run a few hundred rounds through your weapon so you know it functions and how it hits.  Join up with like-minded people and train as a unit.  Don’t go public.

Help out others.  Don’t retreat into the bunker or bug out bag mentality, build community; a community of Americans alight with the fire of Freedom.  Defend the innocent, build a cash underground economy and go to substitute currencies and barter to free yourselves of a ever-debasing dollar.

What you do publically is start a recall election campaign with a full slate of candidates.  With control of your local governmental apparatus you can repatriate the CAFR funds your tax funds were used to multiply YOUR public offices coffers and eliminate taxes.  Eliminate your laws while you’re at it.  Start the Second American Revolution.  Ignite the fire of Freedom where you’re at. (5)

Start some fires.  The flames will merge into an inferno when people see there’s answers.  The fire will spread coast to coast and when we’ve taken OUR AMERICA back we can and will export the American Revolution to the entire planet: seven billion human beings alight with the fire of Freedom, an inferno that will burn all works of evil clean off our planet.  Then, we can finally assume our rightful destiny amongst the stars.

Start some fires.

AMERICAN SOLDIERS ARE WAKING UP

LA RAZA DUPES CLAIM THEY'RE READY TO BE CANNON FODDER FOR RACE WAR



What's funny is the brainwashed college student thinking if they go along with racist Mexican fascists they can be honorary Latinos.

This will be one more war Mexico will lose. This will be one more war Mexicans will lose rather than mount a revolution in their own country. If they did that, they wouldn't even be in America, they could make Mexico a first world nation but they pride on being uneducated and stealing others land and letting their rulers fuck it up as well.

TRUTHNEVERTOLD'S ONE QUESTION TO RON PAUL




My three questions are:

1.)How come he hasn't up to now challenged the in our face vote fraud

2.)Employed people who systematically derail and sabotage genuine campaigns supporting him in favor of the sons of the Three Stooges that do get employed

3.)How come he hasn't raised state and especially local candidates so that when he loses, "his" movement-our movement-still moves forward

FUKUSHIMA: A NUCLEAR WAR WITHOUT WAR

Fukushima: A Nuclear War without a War
The Unspoken Crisis of Worldwide Nuclear Radiation
Michel Chossudovsky (Editor)
I-Book No. 3, January 25  2012
 
Global Research's Online Interactive I-Book Reader brings together, in the form of chapters, a collection of Global Research feature articles and videos, including debate and analysis, on a broad theme or subject matter. 
In this Interactive Online I-Book we bring to the attention of our readers an important collection of articles, reports and video material on the Fukushima nuclear catastrophe and its impacts (scroll down for the Table of Contents).

INTRODUCTION
The World is at a critical crossroads. The Fukushima disaster in Japan has brought to the forefront the dangers of Worldwide nuclear radiation.
The crisis in Japan has been described as "a nuclear war without a war". In the words of renowned novelist Haruki Murakami:
"This time no one dropped a bomb on us ... We set the stage, we committed the crime with our own hands, we are destroying our own lands, and we are destroying our own lives."
Nuclear radiation --which threatens life on planet earth-- is not front page news in comparison to the most insignificant issues of public concern, including the local level crime scene or the tabloid gossip reports on Hollywood celebrities. 
While the long-term repercussions of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster are yet to be fully assessed, they are far more serious than those pertaining to the 1986 Chernobyl disaster in the Ukraine, which resulted in almost one million deaths (New Book Concludes - Chernobyl death toll: 985,000, mostly from cancer Global Research, September 10, 2010, See also Matthew Penney and Mark Selden  The Severity of the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Disaster: Comparing Chernobyl and Fukushima, Global Research, May 25, 2011)
 Moreover, while all eyes were riveted on the Fukushima Daiichi plant, news coverage both in Japan and internationally failed to fully acknowledge the impacts of a second catastrophe at TEPCO's (Tokyo Electric Power Co  Inc) Fukushima Daini nuclear power plant.
The shaky political consensus both in Japan, the U.S. and Western Europe is that the crisis at Fukushima has been contained.
The realties, however, are otherwise. Fukushima 3 was leaking unconfirmed amounts of plutonium. According to Dr. Helen Caldicott, "one millionth of a gram of plutonium, if inhaled can cause cancer".  
An opinion poll in May 2011 confirmed that more than 80 per cent of the Japanese population do not believe the government's information regarding the nuclear crisis. (quoted in Sherwood Ross, Fukushima: Japan's Second Nuclear Disaster, Global Research, November 10, 2011)

The Impacts in Japan
The Japanese government has been obliged to acknowledge that "the severity rating of its nuclear crisis ... matches that of the 1986 Chernobyl disaster". In a bitter irony, however, this tacit admission by the Japanese authorities has proven to been part of  the cover-up of a significantly larger catastrophe, resulting in a process of global nuclear radiation and contamination:
"While Chernobyl was an enormous unprecedented disaster, it only occurred at one reactor and rapidly melted down. Once cooled, it was able to be covered with a concrete sarcophagus that was constructed with 100,000 workers. There are a staggering 4400 tons of nuclear fuel rods at Fukushima, which greatly dwarfs the total size of radiation sources at Chernobyl." ( Extremely High Radiation Levels in Japan: University Researchers Challenge Official Data, Global Research, April 11, 2011)
Fukushima in the wake of the Tsunami, March 2011
Worldwide Contamination
The dumping of highly radioactive water into the Pacific Ocean constitutes a potential trigger to a process of global radioactive contamination. Radioactive elements have not only been detected in the food chain in Japan, radioactive rain water has been recorded in California:
"Hazardous radioactive elements being released in the sea and air around Fukushima accumulate at each step of various food chains (for example, into algae, crustaceans, small fish, bigger fish, then humans; or soil, grass, cow's meat and milk, then humans). Entering the body, these elements - called internal emitters - migrate to specific organs such as the thyroid, liver, bone, and brain, continuously irradiating small volumes of cells with high doses of alpha, beta and/or gamma radiation, and over many years often induce cancer". (Helen Caldicott, Fukushima: Nuclear Apologists Play Shoot the Messenger on Radiation, The Age,  April 26, 2011)
While the spread of radiation to the West Coast of North America was casually acknowledged, the early press reports (AP and Reuters) "quoting diplomatic sources" stated that only "tiny amounts of radioactive particles have arrived in California but do not pose a threat to human health."
"According to the news agencies, the unnamed sources have access to data from a network of measuring stations run by the United Nations’ Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty Organization. ... 
... Greg Jaczko, chair of the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, told White House reporters on Thursday (March 17) that his experts “don’t see any concern from radiation levels that could be harmful here in the United States or any of the U.S. territories”.





The spread of radiation. March 2011
Public Health Disaster. Economic Impacts
What prevails is a well organized camouflage. The public health disaster in Japan, the contamination of water, agricultural land and the food chain, not to mention the broader economic and social implications, have neither been fully acknowledged nor addressed in a comprehensive and meaningful fashion by the Japanese authorities. 
 Japan as a nation state has been destroyed. Its landmass and territorial waters are contaminated. Part of the country is uninhabitable. High levels of radiation have been recorded in the Tokyo metropolitan area, which has a population of  39 million (2010) (more than the population of Canada, circa 34 million (2010)) There are indications that the food chain is contaminated throughout Japan:
Radioactive cesium exceeding the legal limit was detected in tea made in a factory in Shizuoka City, more than 300 kilometers away from the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant. Shizuoka Prefecture is one of the most famous tea producing areas in Japan.
A tea distributor in Tokyo reported to the prefecture that it detected high levels of radioactivity in the tea shipped from the city. The prefecture ordered the factory to refrain from shipping out the product. After the accident at the Fukushima nuclear power plant, radioactive contamination of tea leaves and processed tea has been found over a wide area around Tokyo. (See 5 More Companies Detect Radiation In Their Tea Above Legal Limits Over 300 KM From Fukushima, June 15, 2011)
Japan's industrial and manufacturing base is prostrate. Japan is no longer a leading industrial power. The country's exports have plummeted. The Tokyo government has announced its first trade deficit since 1980.
While the business media has narrowly centered on the impacts of power outages and energy shortages on the pace of productive activity, the broader issue pertaining to the outright radioactive contamination of the country's infrastructure and industrial base is a "scientific taboo" (i.e the radiation of industrial plants, machinery and equipment, buildings, roads, etc). A report released in January 2012 points to the nuclear contamination of building materials used in the construction industry, in cluding roads and residential buildings throughout Japan.(See  FUKUSHIMA: Radioactive Houses and Roads in Japan. Radioactive Building Materials Sold to over 200 Construction Companies, January 2012)
A "coverup report" by the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (May 2011), entitled "Economic Impact of the Great East Japan Earthquake and Current Status of Recovery"  presents "Economic Recovery" as a fait accompli. It also brushes aside the issue of radiation. The impacts of nuclear radiation on the work force and the country's industrial base are not mentioned. The report states that the distance between Tokyo -Fukushima Dai-ichi  is of the order of 230 km (about 144 miles) and that the levels of radiation in Tokyo are lower than in Hong Kong and New York City.(Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry, Impact of the Great East Japan Earthquake and Current Status of Recovery, p.15). This statement is made without corroborating evidence and in overt contradiction with independent radiation readings in Tokyo (se map below). In recent developments, Sohgo Security Services Co. is launching a lucrative "radiation measurement service targeting households in Tokyo and four surrounding prefectures".

"A map of citizens' measured radiation levels shows radioactivity is distributed in a complex pattern reflecting the mountainous terrain and the shifting winds across a broad area of Japan north of Tokyo which is in the center of the of bottom of the map."

"Radiation limits begin to be exceeded at just above 0.1 microsieverts/ hour blue. Red is about fifty times the civilian radiation limit at 5.0 microsieverts/hour. Because children are much more sensitive than adults, these results are a great concern for parents of young children in potentially affected areas.


The fundamental question is whether the vast array of industrial goods and components "Made in Japan" -- including hi tech components, machinery, electronics, motor vehicles, etc -- and exported Worldwide are contaminated? Were this to be the case, the entire East and Southeast Asian industrial base --which depends heavily on Japanese components and industrial technology-- would be affected. The potential impacts on international trade would be farreaching. In this regard, in January, Russian officials confiscated irradiated Japanese automobiles and autoparts in the port of Vladivostok for sale in the Russian Federation. Needless to say, incidents of this nature in a global competitive environment, could lead to the demise of the Japanese automobile industry which is already in crisis.

While most of the automotive industry is in central Japan, Nissan's engine factory in Iwaki city is 42 km from the Fukushima Daiichi plant. Is the Nissan work force affected? Is the engine plant contaminated? The plant is within about 10 to 20 km of the government's "evacuation zone" from which some 200,000 people were evacuated (see map below).

Nuclear Energy and Nuclear War
The crisis in Japan has also brought into the open the unspoken relationship between nuclear energy and nuclear war.
Nuclear energy is not a civilian economic activity. It is an appendage of the nuclear weapons industry which is controlled by the so-called defense contractors. The powerful corporate interests behind nuclear energy and nuclear weapons overlap.
In Japan at the height of the disaster, "the nuclear industry and government agencies [were] scrambling to prevent the discovery of atomic-bomb research facilities hidden inside Japan's civilian nuclear power plants".1  (See Yoichi Shimatsu, Secret Weapons Program Inside Fukushima Nuclear Plant? Global Research,  April 12, 2011)
It should be noted that the complacency of both the media and the governments to the hazards of nuclear radiation pertains to the nuclear energy industry as well as to to use of nuclear weapons. In both cases, the devastating health impacts of nuclear radiation are casually denied. Tactical nuclear weapons with an explosive capacity of up to six times a Hiroshima bomb are labelled by the Pentagon as "safe for the surrounding civilian population".
No concern has been expressed at the political level as to the likely consequences of a US-NATO-Israel attack on Iran, using "safe for civilians" tactical nuclear weapons against a non-nuclear state.
Such an action would result in "the unthinkable": a nuclear holocaust over a large part of the Middle East and Central Asia. A nuclear nightmare, however, would occur even if nuclear weapons were not used. The bombing of Iran's nuclear facilities using conventional weapons would contribute to unleashing another Fukushima type disaster with extensive radioactive fallout.

The Online Interactive I-Book Reader on Fukushima: A Nuclear War without a War
In view of the official cover-up and media disinformation campaign, the contents of the articles and video reports in this Online Interactive Reader have not trickled down to to the broader public. (See Table of contents below)
This Online Interactive Reader on Fukushima contains a combination of analytical and scientific articles, video reports as well as shorter news reports and corroborating data.

Part I focusses on The Fukushima Nuclear Disaster: How it Happened? Part II  pertains to The Devastating Health and Social Impacts in Japan. Part III  centers on the "Hidden Nuclear Catastrophe", namely the cover-up by the Japanese government and the corporate media. Part IV focusses on the issue of  Worlwide Nuclear Radiation and Part V reviews the Implications of the Fukushima disaster for the Global Nuclear Energy Industry.
In the face of ceaseless media disinformation, this Global Research Online I-Book on the dangers of global nuclear radiation is intended to break the media vacuum and raise public awareness, while also pointing to the complicity of  the governments, the media and the nuclear industry. 
We call upon our readers to spread the word.

We invite university, college and high school teachers to make this Interactive Reader on Fukushima available to their students.

TEXT BOX
 Nuclear Radiation: Categorization
At Fukushima, reports confirm that alpha, beta, gamma particles and neutrons have been released: 
"While non-ionizing radiation and x-rays are a result of electron transitions in atoms or molecules, there are three forms of ionizing radiation that are a result of activity within the nucleus of an atom.  These forms of nuclear radiation are alpha particles (α-particles), beta particles (β-particles) and gamma rays (γ-rays).
Alpha particles are heavy positively charged particles made up of two protons and two neutrons.  They are essentially a helium nucleus and are thus represented in a nuclear equation by either α or n1.  See the Alpha Decay page for more information on alpha particles.
Beta particles come in two forms: n2 and n3n3 particles are just electrons that have been ejected from the nucleus.  This is a result of sub-nuclear reactions that result in a neutron decaying to a proton.  The electron is needed to conserve charge and comes from the nucleus.  It is not an orbital electron.  n2particles are positrons ejected from the nucleus when a proton decays to a neutron.  A positron is an anti-particle that is similar in nearly all respects to an electron, but has a positive charge.  See the Beta Decay page for more information on beta particles.
Gamma rays are photons of high energy electromagnetic radiation (light).  Gamma rays generally have the highest frequency and shortest wavelengths in the electromagnetic spectrum.  There is some overlap in the frequencies of gamma rays and x-rays; however, x-rays are formed from electron transitions while gamma rays are formed from nuclear transitions. See the Gamma Rays  for more" (SOURCE: Canadian Nuclear Association)

"A neutron is a particle that is found in the nucleus, or center, of atoms. It has a mass very close to protons, which also reside in the nucleus of atoms. Together, they make up almost all of the mass of individual atoms. Each has a mass of about 1 amu, which is roughly 1.6×10-27kg. Protons have a positive charge and neutrons have no charge, which is why they were more difficult to discover." (SOURCE:
Neutron Radiation)

"Many different radioactive isotopes are used in or are produced by nuclear reactors. The most important of these are described below:
1. Uranium 235 (U-235) is the active component of most nuclear reactor fuel.
2. Plutonium (Pu-239) is a key nuclear material used in modern nuclear weapons and is also present as a by-product in certain reprocessed fuels used in some nuclear reactors. Pu-239 is also produced in uranium reactors as a byproduct of fission of U-235.
3. Cesium (Cs-137 ) is a fission product of U-235. It emits beta and gamma radiation and can cause radiation sickness and death if exposures are high enough. ...
4. Iodine 131 (I-131), also a fission product of U-235, emits beta and gamma radiation. After inhalation or ingestion, it is absorbed by and concentrated in the thyroid gland, where its beta radiation damages nearby thyroid tissue  (SOURCE: Amesh A. Adalja, MD, Eric S.
