Spent Fuel Rods Drive Growing Fear Over Plant in Japan
Reporters and Tepco workers at Reactor No. 4 at Fukushima Daiichi, which the environment and nuclear minister visited Saturday.
TOKYO — What passes for normal at the Fukushima Daiichi plant today would have caused shudders among even the most sanguine of experts before an earthquake and tsunami set off the world’s second most serious nuclear crisis after Chernobyl.
Fourteen months after the accident, a pool brimming with used fuel rods and filled with vast quantities of radioactive cesium still sits on the top floor of a heavily damaged reactor building, covered only with plastic.
The public’s fears about the pool have grown in recent months as some scientists have warned that it has the most potential for setting off a new catastrophe, now that the three nuclear reactors that suffered meltdowns are in a more stable state, and as frequent quakes continue to rattle the region..
Leveson Inquiry: Tony Blair denies ‘war criminal’ allegations
White Slavery: The Irish Slaves That Time Forgot
By John Martin
May 28, 2012 “Information Clearing House” — They came as slaves; vast human cargo transported on tall British ships bound for the Americas. They were shipped by the hundreds of thousands and included men, women, and even the youngest of children.
Whenever they rebelled or even disobeyed an order, they were punished in the harshest ways. Slave owners would hang their human property by their hands and set their hands or feet on fire as one form of punishment. They were burned alive and had their heads placed on pikes in the marketplace as a warning to other captives.
We don’t really need to go through all of the gory details, do we? After all, we know all too well the atrocities of the African slave trade. But, are we talking about African slavery?
King James II and Charles I led a continued effort to enslave the Irish. Britain’s famed Oliver Cromwell furthered this practice of dehumanizing one’s next door neighbor.
The Irish slave trade began when James II sold 30,000 Irish prisoners as slaves to the New World. His Proclamation of 1625 required Irish political prisoners be sent overseas and sold to English settlers in the West Indies. By the mid 1600s, the Irish were the main slaves sold to Antigua and Montserrat. At that time, 70% of the total population of Montserrat were Irish slaves.
Ireland quickly became the biggest source of human livestock for English merchants. The majority of the early slaves to the New World were actually white.
From 1641 to 1652, over 500,000 Irish were killed by the English and another 300,000 were sold as slaves. Ireland’s population fell from about 1,500,000 to 600,000 in one single decade. Families were ripped apart as the British did not allow Irish dads to take their wives and children with them across the Atlantic. This led to a helpless population of homeless women and children. Britain’s solution was to auction them off as well.
During the 1650s, over 100,000 Irish children between the ages of 10 and 14 were taken from their parents and sold as slaves in the West Indies, Virginia and New England. In this decade, 52,000 Irish (mostly women and children) were sold to Barbados and Virginia. Another 30,000 Irish men and women were also transported and sold to the highest bidder. In 1656, Cromwell ordered that 2000 Irish children be taken to Jamaica and sold as slaves to English settlers.
Many people today will avoid calling the Irish slaves what they truly were: Slaves. They’ll come up with terms like “Indentured Servants” to describe what occurred to the Irish. However, in most cases from the 17th and 18th centuries, Irish slaves were nothing more than human cattle.
As an example, the African slave trade was just beginning during this same period. It is well recorded that African slaves, not tainted with the stain of the hated Catholic theology and more expensive to purchase, were often treated far better than their Irish counterparts.
African slaves were very expensive during the late 1600s (50 Sterling). Irish slaves came cheap (no more than 5 Sterling). If a planter whipped or branded or beat an Irish slave to death, it was never a crime. A death was a monetary setback, but far cheaper than killing a more expensive African.
The English masters quickly began breeding the Irish women for both their own personal pleasure and for greater profit. Children of slaves were themselves slaves, which increased the size of the master’s free workforce. Even if an Irish woman somehow obtained her freedom, her kids would remain slaves of her master. Thus, Irish moms, even with this new found emancipation, would seldom abandon their kids and would remain in servitude.
In time, the English thought of a better way to use these women (in many cases, girls as young as 12) to increase their market share: The settlers began to breed Irish women and girls with African men to produce slaves with a distinct complexion. These new “mulatto” slaves brought a higher price than Irish livestock and, likewise, enabled the settlers to save money rather than purchase new African slaves.
This practice of interbreeding Irish females with African men went on for several decades and was so widespread that, in 1681, legislation was passed “forbidding the practice of mating Irish slave women to African slave men for the purpose of producing slaves for sale.” In short, it was stopped only because it interfered with the profits of a large slave transport company.
England continued to ship tens of thousands of Irish slaves for more than a century. Records state that, after the 1798 Irish Rebellion, thousands of Irish slaves were sold to both America and Australia.
There were horrible abuses of both African and Irish captives. One British ship even dumped 1,302 slaves into the Atlantic Ocean so that the crew would have plenty of food to eat.
There is little question that the Irish experienced the horrors of slavery as much (if not more in the 17th Century) as the Africans did. There is, also, very little question that those brown, tanned faces you witness in your travels to the West Indies are very likely a combination of African and Irish ancestry.
In 1839, Britain finally decided on it’s own to end it’s participation in Satan’s highway to hell and stopped transporting slaves. While their decision did not stop pirates from doing what they desired, the new law slowly concluded THIS chapter of nightmarish Irish misery.
But, if anyone, black or white, believes that slavery was only an African experience, then they’ve got it completely wrong.
Irish slavery is a subject worth remembering, not erasing from our memories. But, where are our public (and PRIVATE) schools???? Where are the history books? Why is it so seldom discussed?
Do the memories of hundreds of thousands of Irish victims merit more than a mention from an unknown writer? Or is their story to be one that their English pirates intended: To (unlike the African book) have the Irish story utterly and completely disappear as if it never happened.
None of the Irish victims ever made it back to their homeland to describe their ordeal. These are the lost slaves; the ones that time and biased history books conveniently forgot.

Dykes and Feminists Don’t like the Message
You have to respect anyone with this type of courage to stand up to the hate filled , LGBT/atheist crowd. God is love but he is also holy and pure and cannot stand sin. God will not condemn you, you will condemn yourself as unworthy of the love of God when you stand in his presence without Jesus. Atheists raise atheists in general. No credit to America. They should go back to England where they belong. I don’t know why they are arguing with him about God when they don’t believe in him. Unfortunately for the heathen, when you’re dead it is too late.

Jeff Rense Watch- Gives His Wife VD
Rense is just another piece of i- scum. They lead from the front. His father worked his entire life for the Anglo-Zionist establishment at a high level and his brother is a prominent mainstream media figure, and we know who owns that business. One has to suspect he has the Rothschilds bloodline as he is so, so devious and cheap. It would not surprise me if he sold every ip of his supporters to the Mossad/MI6/CIA. What a complete phony. His ‘farm’ team, how quaint. I think it is time for him to take his loot and retire. Get out of the truth movement Rense, you’ve been exposed as scum put there to discredit it.
Jeff Rense’s 1st Wife Describes his Cheating
May 27, 2012
left, First wife Janet was a 19-yr-old UCSB cheerleader. (This isn’t her.)
“I got an STD from Jeff because of his cheating.“
“I had post-traumatic stress disorder due to the marriage and wish I had gotten some counseling.“
Jeff advertises for women in the following terms: "Jeff Rense is truly an American Treasure...known as a consummate journalist and patriot and equally known for his kindness, loyalty, sensitivity, compassion and intelligence. You believe in his values and admire his courage and sacrifice."
Jeff Rense is a fraud, a ticking time bomb for the "Truth movement" and everyone associated with him. He poses as a Christian and hosts exemplary Christian pastors like Ted Pike, Texe Marrs & Brother Nathaniel.
He poses as a defender of free speech while siccing his LA lawyers on web hosts that post the truth about him. If you can't handle the truth, or if, like Jeff Rense, you can't tell the difference, do not read this.]
My name is Janet, and I was Jeff Rense’s first wife.
I received a phone call from “Megan,” Jeff’s latest ex-wife, on Mother’s Day. What a shock to be reminded of Jeff and the horrible devastation he wreaked upon me over 40 years ago.
I had no idea I was merely the first in a long line of Jeff’s devastated ex-wives and girlfriends. When I told Megan my story, she was surprised to learn how little he has changed over the years.
I was only 19-years-old, a student at the University of California, Santa Barbara (UCSB) when I met Jeff, who was a 23-year-old UCSB graduate.
He had told Megan that he married me to avoid the draft; that I was just a “marriage of convenience.” But that is a lie. He married me because he loved me, or so he said.
Jeff was very handsome and charming. It was 1969; there were riots happening in the student community (Isla Vista) adjacent to the UCSB campus. Students had burned down the bank, and the community was filled with police cars and tear gas.
Jeff was reporting on the riots for a local radio station. He was also doing live sports reporting for the UCSB basketball games, and he was an after-school sports coach for 6th grade girls.
JEFF CHANGED MY LIFE FOR THE WORSE
Before meeting Jeff, I was a happy person. I was slightly shy, but I was a cheerleader and had many good friends.
But that all changed. Jeff would tell me repeatedly that my friends were against me, and I could trust him. He succeeded in isolating me. (Megan said he does the same thing to her.)
I was very innocent when we married. I thought our marriage would be monogamous, and that Jeff only loved and wanted me. But instead he was very interested in sex with other women, and he told me about it.
He showed me a pornographic picture he had taken of his last girlfriend before our marriage. He told me of his plans for his 6th grade girls’ sports team that he coached. He was choosing the most attractive ones and waiting until they were old enough, 17 or 18 years old for sex. He called them his “farm team.”
While married to me, Jeff signed up for an art class at UCSB, even though he had already graduated. He went to a class in which the students would draw pictures of nude models. I found out from my friends that Jeff was having sex with the nude models. I was distraught and inconsolable. I got an STD from Jeff because of his cheating.
FAST BUCK ARTIST
Jeff was also a “cheat” in other ways. He spent most of his years in Isla Vista in a house he rented which was located right on the cliffs overlooking the Pacific Ocean. But he never paid any rent. That is because he overcharged his roommates. Not only did he never pay rent but he would make a $250 profit each month – that is how much he overcharged.
He also took advantage of his knee injury by suing the school he was working for when the injury occurred (this is the school where he coached his “farm team”).
He won a few thousand dollars from them, and used this money to start a small deli in Isla Vista, upstairs from the general store. He called this deli “Mario’s” after Mario Lanza. He was a huge fan of Mario Lanza.
I was very unhappy after learning that Jeff was cheating on me. Jeff then pressured me to end the marriage and got us an annulment. I did not receive anything; there was no settlement. He kept our dog, Teddy.
I DROPPED OUT OF UNIVERSITY
I was a very different person after Jeff. In looking back, I believe I had post traumatic stress disorder due to the marriage and wish I had gotten some counseling.
I had completely lost all of my self-esteem. I was out of contact with my friends. I was so devastated that I would not leave the house.
I had gone from a happy cheerleader to being agoraphobic. I dropped out of UCSB, and ultimately finished my degree at a much less prestigious school. It took me years to recover from my experience with Jeff Rense.
I met Jeff’s stepmother (Paige Rense) while we were married. It was very sad; they had a very poor relationship. I think that may be part of the reason he cannot have a happy relationship with a woman.
It is very hard for me to revisit this period. I do not want to think of it. I am telling my story in solidarity with the other women who were abused by Jeff, and to prevent there being any future victims.
Facebook banks JPM/Goldman Sachs under fire after helping bet against float
Anger at Goldman Sachs and JP Morgan loaning shares to hedge funds wanting to short the stock
Anger over what critics see as the botched flotation of Facebook moved to Goldman Sachs and JP Morgan yesterday, after it emerged that the giant Wall Street banks had been aiding hedge funds to bet that the shares would fall.
With shares in the $104bn (£66bn) internet giant way below the float price and investors seething, the revelation that the two most powerful US banks lent shares so that they could be “shorted” again opened up controversy about conflicts of interest on Wall Street.
The issue could increase pressure on regulators and politicians to push for a break-up of the biggest banks, which critics say routinely bet against their own clients.
The banks robustly defend such arguments, pointing out that it is the clients, rather than the banks, that have competing interests.
Morgan Stanley – the lead banker on Facebook’s flotation – was already accused of mishandling the process amid accusations that only favoured investors got proper information about the company’s growth prospects.
It strongly denies this claim, saying: “Morgan Stanley followed the same procedures for the Facebook offering that it follows for all IPOs (initial public offerings). These procedures are in compliance with all applicable regulations.”
It now turns out that both Goldman Sachs and JP Morgan lent stock to hedge funds wanting to short it – that is, sell the shares in the expectation they could buy them back later at a cheaper price – making a profit in the process.
The banks earn a fee from the hedge funds for the loan of the shares. To banking insiders this is regarded as entirely normal, but it adds to the growing feeling that Wall Street operates in ways that hurt ordinary investors.
There have been calls for the US regulator, the Securities & Exchange Commission, to rewrite the rules on IPOs.
Morgan Stanley has faced particular criticism since the plunge in Facebook’s share price. It is able to intervene and support the shares as part of the normal IPO process but seems to have faced such a wave of selling that its attempts failed.
It has a policy of not lending stock to hedge funds if it is the lead bank on a flotation.
None of the banks involved were willing to comment on the controversy, citing client confidentiality rules.
But defenders of Wall Street say shorting shares is entirely normal and that it is simply not possible to arrange the flotation of anything if investors are only allowed to buy.
Said one analyst: “If you don’t have a long and a short, you don’t have a market. Are you suggesting it should only be possible to buy a house, but not sell it?”
Another observer said: “They are banks. If someone wants to buy or sell something, they allow them to do it. Why is a hedge fund selling a stock short, different from someone buying a share in the IPO and then selling it?”
Defenders of the banks say they are just the middle men.
“They are hired by Facebook, but they have other clients too,” one banker said.
Daylian Cain, a Yale School of Management professor of business ethics at Yale School of Management told the Wall Street Journal: “Wall Street has conflicts of interest and conflicts of interest are profitable.”
Facebook shares opened at $38 last Friday. They had fallen to $33.03 by close of play on Thursday.
Yesterday they were down $1.12 at $31.91 in late afternoon trade.
Analysts note that Facebook floated in the midst of extreme market turmoil given events in Greece and elsewhere and that this could be the biggest reason for the fall in the shares.

This low pants thing is part of homosexual prison culture and is used to advertise you’re available for sodomy. only you women are to blame for this.
There is no one else. eating off the ‘fat of the land’ is the dream of every Zionist Jew. Milking and corrupting the goyim and preying female mental weakness and emotional responses is how the talmudist do it.
This guy travels with a lot of mossad body guards as he knows red blooded men would like to pound him into the ground for corrupting their daughters.
The fag look to the max.
Still fathers are responsible for directing their daughters morality and bring sanity to the home. So a lot of ‘fails’ there. Can we blame women for their inherent flaws and emotions? No wonder the Chastity belt was invented. It is time to bring that back or deal with the beavers of the world.
Britain’s Royal Family: Dynasty Of Dementia — Mental Illness Traced To George III
History films are doubly entertaining when they shed new light on the present moment. And “The Madness of King George,” which opens tomorrow, ties into the messy state of today’s royal family.
The George in question is America’s last king, George III, who was dismissed by the Declaration of Independence as a “tyrant . . . unfit to be the ruler of a free people.” The film accurately portrays him as a madman.
Elizabeth II and her family are directly descended from George III, who suffered recurrent bouts of mental illness from middle age to the end of his life. Since part of the mad old king’s genetic inheritance lives on in the Windsor blood today, some of his mental estrangement may have come all the way down to Prince Charles.
The `Loony Prince’
Charles, who has long been known as “The Loony Prince,” once took pen in hand to deny this possibility. In an essay produced after he finished his studies at Cambridge University, Charles stressed his belief that his ancestor George suffered from a physical – not a mental – illness.
George’s shocking eccentricities, wrote the Prince, were caused not by madness but by “a mental state akin to the sort of delirium experienced by patients with very high fevers.”
Unfortunately for Charles’ theory, George was out of his mind for weeks and weeks after his temperature returned to normal.
In fact, George’s diagnosis remains in question. Dr. Richard Galbraith of Rockefeller University says that the cause of the king’s physical symptoms might have had nothing to do with his mental condition; “George might just have been batty at the same time.”
But you can’t doubt the sanity of a member of the current generation on the basis of one controversially mad ancestor. What we need here is a collection of crazy royals. And we have them.
Concern for Victoria
Take, for instance, Queen Victoria, who was George III’s granddaughter. Her faithful and conscientious husband, Prince Albert, was so appalled by Victoria’s frenzied response to her mother’s death that he thought her on the brink of insanity.
Albert, who was haunted by the thought that the dynasty suffered under a curse of madness, even wrote to the Privy Council about the possibility of a permanent separation from his wife.
In a cruel twist, his wish was granted when he died of typhoid at the age of 42. Victoria’s reaction was part of the pattern that began with her mother’s death; she became so distracted that she wasn’t fit to appear in public for 10 years.
The 20th century also has its share of royal aberrants. Elizabeth II’s Uncle John, who died in 1919, suffered from tantrums and fits throughout his short life. He spent his final years in enforced seclusion. When he died at the age of 14, his mother Queen Mary described his passing as “a great release.” (For herself, she meant.)
As for Prince Philip, he brought more exotic blood into the royal family. Royal biographer Charles Higham notes that “Philip was born, in 1921, into a family whose tormented history involved assassination, death by blood poisoning, judicial murder, slaughter of the innocent, exile, and disgrace.
Saintly, but . . .
Philip’s mother Alice, a saintly woman in many ways, was nevertheless an embarrassment to the royals throughout the last 20 years of her life. She died in 1969, having spent her last years out of public view, aimlessly roaming the back corridors of Buckingham Palace. The British press of the time never presented the British people with a clear picture of her whereabouts or condition.
There was also Eddy, the dim brother of George V (who was Queen Elizabeth’s grandfather). And the Queen Mother’s mentally handicapped nieces, Nerissa and Katherine. And it’s safe to assume that other compromising bits of Windsor family history have been censored.
The acts of censorship continue to this day. They are performed by the Queen’s librarians at Windsor Castle, who, according to the respected British writer A.N. Wilson, destroy all embarrassing documents that come to their attention.
But you cannot censor the possibility that inbreeding is a major factor in the royal family’s unique psychiatric history. Take the case of Charles’s parents, who are both direct descendants from the line of George III and Queen Victoria, which makes them third cousins. (By another line of descent, they are second cousins once removed.)
Inbreeding a royal practice
Unfortunately, the inbreeding didn’t start in this century; it’s been a royal practice for generations, since it was useful for shoring up political alliances. One result is that Prince Charles has 22 separate lines of descent from Mary Queen of Scots.
Such thickening of the blood can lead to unhappy consequences. As the Encyclopedia Britannica puts it, inbreeding tends to result in “the appearance of relatively many individuals with hereditary diseases.” Inbreeding thus may have increased the likelihood of latent insanity in the Windsors’ genetic makeup.
If the royals are inclined by nature to eccentric behavior, they have little opportunity to minimize the risk of further embarrassments. The hostility of Princess Diana alone is placing them under enormous pressure, and the continuous strain is likely to accentuate their moods of desperation, which are still generally hidden from the public eye.
It is, of course, Prince Charles who has had the underside of his character most completely revealed – though there is, I think, much left for us to examine. Even now, polls indicate a majority of Britons consider him unfit to wear the crown upon the death of his mother.
No one is more aware of his shaky position than Charles himself, so viewing “The Madness of King George” wouldn’t be a confidence-building experience for him. The Prince would do well to stay away. But royals-watchers, history buffs, and appreciators of good film will find it worthwhile.
Larry Hedrick, a Seattle writer, lectures nationally on the British royal family. His forthcoming book will be titled “The Last Royal Family Album.”
Eric Holder: Gun Runner to Mexican Drug Cartels
The Himmler of our day. He hates white Christians and black Christians alike. His mother is a Zionist Jew. He is the thug of thugs. He fears losing power as he knows he may be brought to Justice. One of the greatest criminals to ever serve in high level office. Holder should be doing 20 years to life for his crimes against the American people. A vile, vile racist like most Talmudists. He and Obama are a gang of Black-Jewish looters working for the English crown. Much like say Robert Mugabe does in Zimbabwe. They have one major problem-most of us are not black and not Jew and thus he has no real support base for his tyranny and racism. This is a real problem for the Obama administration which is despised and reviled as much as Dick Cheney and his 8 pc approval rating, by the American people. How Cheney has fooled people that he is not a Satanic Jew has always amazed me. How Obama and Holder hide their Satanic Jewish roots is also disgusting. Holder is a bizarre, and evil man. Evil eventually consumes itself.

Facebook’s stock should trade for $13.80
It is worth around 5 dollars a share. I suppose Zuckerberg’s plan is to leverage his Chinese wife and commitment to global communism into picking up another 1 billion users there. I would bet against that.
I thought they would over price it at 15-18, and was stunned at what Wall Street did along with the fake crier Sherly Sandberg. Morgan Stanley should be sued out of existence. And just think they went IPO into slowing global economy if not a collapsing one. Google when it floated was very under-priced and Google did a superb job pricing it using a Dutch-Auction technique and bypassing the Wall Street Scum. Ditto with Microsoft.
Most of these funds were mislead by Goldman and Morgan Stanley. Wall Street has learned under Clinton/Bush/Obama no matter what they do they never go to jail. This is how lynch mobs form when justice is thwarted over, and over again. But at least a few people get it.
I guess before the IPO they could not pen the headlines. The English say they are going to take it down to 10 dollars.
I suspect when it gets to five it will be a good buy and Sandberg gets fired. Her parents were expelled from Russia for their Zionist ways. That is why she got the Job I expect. She was part of the great gold rig that occurred under Larry Summers and Tim Geithner.
She’s and ethicless piece of excrement like most Harvard MBAs, like W. Bush. Harvard MBAs are basically all white collar criminal elites with a goal of destroying the USA, and making as much money as possible for doing it. Right now there is ‘relief’ the stock has not collapsed but it is as institutions that have been snookered are propping it up until they can get out. I was truly astounded at the price they sold this stock on based upon false earnings and revenue projections.
Pray Sandberg is brought to justice over this financial malfeasance. You watch, this stock will probably hit five dollars before it bottoms. When they fire Sandberg it is probably time to buy. She thinks she is an ‘untouchable’ like Summers and Geithner. The market is going to punish this stock the likes of which you have never seen before.
Notice Sarbanes Oxley is not enforced. With Eric Holder and Mary Schipiro her ‘kin’ are running the government.
I guess after getting away with the gold rig she feels pretty cocky. The face of evil, don’t mind the crocodile tears. Notice the asymmetrical and highly distorted face. A sign of demonic animation that many Rabbis and witches exhibit. I have not found what her Russian Jewish parents real name is yet, but no doubt its probably famous name in Russian Jewry for its slaughter of Christians. Same butchers, same relgion, different names, different continent, same goal but slightly different MO.

Jones lies for the English crown today, calling them just ‘ceremonial’ and says the other Royals are just ‘ceremonial’ . Yeah that is why Bill Clinton was licking Prince Albert’s boots in Monaco. Every time I think there is hope for Jones to join the resistance, he tells an immense lie like that to his sheeple. I notice his boys are on my site first thing cherry picking the news. Sheesh he has 35 guys, cant he do his own work? Even Benjamin Fulford slipped up once and admitted the European so called Royalty was head of the illuminati. I see thanks to one reader, the Pope is in the Illuminati penalty box with the usual sex scandals. I did not have time to cover that this week. The Rothschilds run the paltry 500 billion of the Catholics, nothing compared to the Windsors 100 trillion or Rothschilds 100 trillion plus. You’re not a real player in the NWO until you have 1 trillion in petty cash. And the Jews control the Catholic Church with the last Pope being a Jew and other the first Jesuit leader, every Jesuit Leader in the Catholic Church has been a Jew.

Whistling Past the Graveyard of Empires

It’s the saddest reading around: the little announcements that dribble out of the Pentagon every day or two — those terse, relatively uninformative death notices: rank; name; age; small town, suburb, or second-level city of origin; means of death (“small arms fire,” “improvised explosive device,” “the result of gunshot wounds inflicted by an individual wearing an Afghan National Army uniform,” or sometimes something vaguer like “while conducting combat operations,” “supporting Operation Enduring Freedom,” or simply no explanation at all); and the unit the dead soldier belonged to. They are seldom 100 words, even with the usual opening line: “The Department of Defense announced today the death of a soldier who was supporting Operation Enduring Freedom.” Sometimes they include more than one death.
They are essentially bureaucratic notices designed to draw little attention to themselves. Yet cumulatively, in their hundreds over the last decade, they represent a grim archive of America’s still ongoing, already largely forgotten second Afghan War, and I’ve read them obsessively for years.
Into the Memory Hole
May is the official month of remembrance when it comes to our war dead, ending as it does on the long Memorial Day weekend when Americans typically take to the road and kill themselves and each other in far greater numbers than will die in Afghanistan. It’s a weekend for which the police tend to predict rising fatalities and news reports tend to celebrate any declines in deaths on our roads and highways.
Quiz Americans and a surprising number undoubtedly won’t have thought about the “memorial” in Memorial Day at all — especially now that it’s largely a marker of the start of summer and an excuse for cookouts.
How many today are aware that, as Decoration Day, it began in 1865 in a nation still torn by grief over the loss of — we now know – up to 750,000 dead in the first modern war, a wrenching civil catastrophe in a then-smaller and still under-populated country? How many know that the first Decoration Day was held in 1865 with 10,000 freed slaves and some Union soldiers parading on a Charleston, South Carolina, race track previously frequented by planters and transformed in wartime into a grim outdoor prison? The former slaves were honoring Union prisoners who had died there and been hastily buried in unmarked graves, but as historian Kenneth Jackson has written, they were also offering “a declaration of the meaning of the war and of their own freedom.”
Those ceremonies migrated north in 1866, became official at national cemeteries in 1868, and grew into ever more elaborate civic remembrances over the years. Even the South, which had previously marked its grief separately, began to take part after World War I as the ceremonies were extended to the remembrance of all American war dead. Only in 1968, in the midst of another deeply unpopular war, did Congress make it official as Memorial Day, creating the now traditional long holiday weekend.
And yet, when it comes to the major war the United States is still fighting, now in its 11th year, the word remembrance is surely inappropriate, as is the “Memorial” in Memorial Day. It’s not just that the dead of the Afghan War have largely been tossed down the memory hole of history (even if they do get official attention on Memorial Day itself). Even the fact that Americans are still dying in Afghanistan seems largely to have been forgotten, along with the war itself.
As the endlessly plummeting opinion polls indicate, the Afghan War is one Americans would clearly prefer to forget — yesterday, not tomorrow. It was, in fact, regularly classified as “the forgotten war” almost from the moment that the Bush administration turned its attention to the invasion of Iraq in 2002 and so declared its urge to create a Pax Americana in the Greater Middle East. Despite the massive “surge” of troops, special operations forces, CIA agents, and civilian personnel sent to Afghanistan by President Obama in 2009-2010, and the ending of the military part of the Iraq debacle in 2011, the Afghan War has never made it out of the grave of forgetfulness to which it was so early consigned.
Count on one thing: there will be no Afghan version of Maya Lin, no Afghan Wall on the National Mall. Unlike the Vietnam conflict, tens of thousands of books won’t be pouring out for decades to come arguing passionately about the conflict. There may not even be a “who lost Afghanistan” debate in its aftermath.
Few Afghan veterans are likely to return from the war to infuse with new energy an antiwar movement that remains small indeed, nor will they worry about being “spit upon.” There will be little controversy. They — their traumas and their wounds — will, like so many bureaucratic notices, disappear into the American ether, leaving behind only an emptiness and misery, here and in Afghanistan, as perhaps befits a bankrupting, never-ending imperial war on the global frontiers.
Whistling Past the Graveyard of Empires
If nothing else, the path to American amnesia is worth recalling on this Memorial Day.
Though few here remember it that way, the invasion of Afghanistan was launched on a cult of the dead. These were the dead civilians from the Twin Towers in New York City. It was to their memory that the only “Wall” of this era — the 9/11 Memorial at Ground Zero in lower Manhattan — has been built. Theirs are the biographies that are still remembered in annual rites nationwide. They are, and remain, the dead of the Afghan War, even though they died before it began.
On the other hand, from the moment the invasion of Afghanistan was launched, how to deal with the actual American war dead was always considered a problematic matter. The Bush administration and the military high command, with the Vietnam War still etched in their collective memories, feared those uniformed bodies coming home (as they feared and banished the “body count” of enemy dead in the field). They remembered the return of the “body bags” of the Vietnam era as a kind of nightmare, stoking a fierce antiwar movement, which they were determined not to see repeated.
As a result, in the early years of the Afghan and then Iraq wars, the Bush administration took relatively draconian steps to cut the media off from any images of the returning war dead. They strictly enforced a Pentagon ban, in existence since the first Gulf War, on media coverage and images of the coffins arriving from the war fronts at Dover Air Force Base in Delaware. At the same time, much publicity was given to the way President Bush met privately and emotionally — theoretically beyond the view of the media — with the families of the dead.
And yet, banned or not, for a period the war dead proliferated. In those early years of Washington’s two increasingly catastrophic wars on the Eurasian mainland, newspapers regularly produced full-page or double-page “walls of heroes” with tiny images of the faces of the American dead, while their names were repeatedly read in somber tones on television. In a similar fashion, the antiwar movement toured the country with little “cemeteries” or displays of combat boots representing the war dead.
The Pentagon ban ended with the arrival of the Obama administration. In October 2009, six months after the Pentagon rescinded it, in an obvious rebuke to his predecessor, President Obama traveled to Dover Air Base. There, inside a plane bringing the bodies of the dead home, he reportedly prayed over the coffins and was later photographed offering a salute as one of them was carried off the plane. But by the time the arrival of the dead could be covered, few seemed to care.
The Bush administration, it turns out, needn’t have worried. In an America largely detached from war, the Iraq War would end without fanfare or anyone here visibly giving much of a damn. Similarly, the Afghan War would continue to limp from one disaster to the next, from an American “kill team” murdering Afghan civilians “for sport” to troops urinating on Afghan corpses (and videotaping the event), or mugging for the camera with enemy body parts, or an American sergeant running amok, or the burning of Qurans, or the raising of an SS banner. And, of course, ever more regularly, ever more unnervingly, Afghan “allies” would turn their guns on American and NATO troops and blow them away. It’s a phenomenon almost unheard of in such wars, but so common in Afghanistan these days that it’s gotten its own label: “green-on-blue violence.”
This has been the road to oblivion and it’s paved with forgotten bodies. Forgetfulness, of course, comes at a price, which includes the escalating long-term costs of paying for the American war-wounded and war-traumatized. On this Memorial Day, there will undoubtedly be much cant in the form of tributes to “our heroes” and then, Tuesday morning, when the mangled cars have been towed away, the barbeque grills cleaned, and the “heroes” set aside, the forgetting will continue. If the Obama administration has its way and American special operations forces, trainers, and advisors in reduced but still significant numbers remain in Afghanistan until perhaps 2024, we have more than another decade of forgetting ahead of us in a tragedy that will, by then, be beyond all comprehension.
Afghanistan has often enough been called “the graveyard of empires.” Americans have made it a habit to whistle past that graveyard, looking the other way — a form of obliviousness much aided by the fact that the American war dead conveniently come from the less well known or forgotten places in our country. They are so much easier to ignore thanks to that.
Except in their hometowns, how easy the war dead are to forget in an era when corporations go to war but Americans largely don’t. So far, 1,980 American military personnel (and significant but largely unacknowledged numbers of private contractors) have died in Afghanistan, as have 1,028 NATO and allied troops, and (despite U.N. efforts to count them) unknown but staggering numbers of Afghans.
So far in the month of May, 22 American dead have been listed in those Pentagon announcements. If you want a little memorial to a war that shouldn’t be, check out their hometowns and you’ll experience a kind of modern graveyard poetry. Consider it an elegy to the dead of second- or third-tier cities, suburbs, and small towns whose names are resonant exactly because they are part of your country, but seldom or never heard by you.
Here, then, on this Memorial Day, are not the names of the May dead, but of their hometowns, announcement by announcement, placed at the graveside of a war that we can’t bear to remember and that simply won’t go away. If it’s the undead of wars, the deaths from it remain a quiet crime against American humanity:
Spencerport, New York
West Chester, Ohio
Charlotte, North Carolina
Round Rock, Texas
Lucerne Valley, California
Las Cruses, New Mexico
Fort Wayne, Indiana
Overland Park, Kansas
Prince George, Virginia
Terre Haute, Indiana.
As long as the hometowns pile up, no one should rest in peace.

Millionaire on the run: How the man who founded software giant McAfee lost his fortune and ended up hiding from police in Belize after they ‘rousted him from the bed of a 17-year-old and shot his dog because he’s running a meth lab’
I never worked on PC perse, workstations or compute farms or on supercomputers. But I did buy his program when it first came out and promptly returned it as I wanted to see if PC software was any good at the time. The software was so bad it was criminal. Well another bad one from England. What can I say. I never looked up his personal history but sort of expected from the generally ‘insane’ nature of the code he produced he was insane. I was not far off the mark it looks like. Only Norton Utilities were in the same ballpark as awful like Microsoft and McAfee. Maybe the software improved after he left. Norton was bad utilities written for a worse operating system. McAfee certainly illustrated in his career, ‘first mover’ advantage although he did not often cash in. He should have carried liability insurance and he would still be doing yoga. Notice how much the Brits like child sex. It is the forte of their witchcraft background. Someone in Silicon Valley told me he was not an American. Now I can see why that person said that.
- John McAfee was once worth $100million but lost nearly all his fortune and moved to Central America in 2008
- Belize security claim he had illegal weapons and drugs and that he was arrested with 17-year-old girl
- In post on private messageboard, McAfee says he has not left his hideout for five days and only has three DVDs and an iPad – without a charger
- Distributed world’s first marketable anti-virus software from his home in California in the late 1980′s.
- Known to enjoy alternative therapies, new age teachings and yoga
- Employed Wiccan witches to bang drums at the headquarters of his eponymous anti-virus software firm
- Allegedly turned a blind eye to his employees using McAfee Associates first offices for sex games in the early 1990′s.
- Faces a $5 million wrongful death lawsuit in the U.S after 61-year-old man died flying an aircraft owned by one of his firms in 2006

Neil Armstrong, Anglomason, Gives Interview to Aussie Accountants Denying Moon Landing was Faked
The evidence is substantial he never went to the moon on the Apollo 11 mission. There used to be many good videos on youtube when it first started exposing this, now the CIA has put up literally 1000s of videos to dispute the more dramatic video evidence. Stanley Kubrick the English Jew film producer, and Henry Kissinger were the masterminds behind the hoax among others in the Nixon administration. Kubrick was likely killed for starting to blow the whistle on the NWO , once he found out what they were really up to. That said he was very active in promoting their themes for decades.
Now since Apollo 11 no doubt the USA military has been to the moon many times and is still going, but it with anti-gravity drives not the ICBMs that were disguised as Apollo rockets. The Apollo program was to get the American taxpayers to gift the USA military with ICBM technology.
Sure we will find your camera there liar Armstrong as the USA military has back tracked and put it up there along with other artifacts for when the Chinese land there for the first time.
Odd that he refuses to give interviews in the USA, but the Australian CPA help him ‘debunk’ the ‘conspiracy’ theorists. Aussies seem to have a real ‘evil’ gene like the English. Well he is an Armstrong, after all and American history is full of Anglomasonic devils named Armstrong, most all of whom were very loyal to the English Crown like the Aussies.
