– Fukushima, Washington Hides ‘Black Swan’ of Economic Collapse (Beacon Equity Research, May 25, 2012):
As the sovereign debt crisis in Europe dominates media coverage of both financial and main street news, Washington’s deliberate cover up of a far more serious threat to the global economy stemming from the continuing crisis at Japan’s Fukushima nuclear power plant (beginning on Mar. 11, 2011) is now seeping out more rapidly from sources outside the captured and complicit mainstream news outlets.“You can’t stop the truth from leaking out about Fukushima, and [President] Obama actually came out with a statement at the start of this disaster and said that their nuclear experts did not feel that harmful levels of radiation would reach our shores,” Nuked Radio host Christina Consolo told TruNews.
Due to increasing reports of nuclear contamination found in pollen across the U.S. West Coast, babies with elevated becquerel levels of nearly 10 times normal (presumably from mother’s milk), and a statistically unusual number of children with flu-like symptoms who won’t respond to conventional medical protocol, the truth about Fukushima could easily break out into a national panic significant enough to trigger an economic collapse of the U.S. economy and dollar, according to Consolo.
That’s “what we found from Freedom of Information Act requests . . . transmissions between the U.S. government, the Chinese, the Russians and the Japanese from the beginning of the disaster until now, and that includes NRC (National Regulatory Commission) transcripts of phone calls,” Consolo explained.
“They were well aware of high the levels were, and that they were coming over here,” she added. “In fact, infants in California were exposed to 40,000 becquerels (symbol Bq: the human body has 4,400 Bq, on average, from decaying potassium) of iodine 131—that causes thyroid cancer—from Mar. 17 to the beginning of April.”
And the threat to U.S. national security as well as the implications to the global economy a nuclear contamination multiple-times more devastating than Chernobyl poses to America may have been the impetus for President Obama’s rapid-fire signing of the Executive Orders of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) in January and the National Defense Resources Preparedness Act (NDRPA) in March, possibly suggesting that President Obama’s motives for these pair of politically catastrophic actions (during an election year) were, in a sense, mischaracterized as a executive branch power grab by media instead of an unpredictable dialogue that could trigger an immediate crisis of panic if the rational for an obvious abrogation (suspension) of the Constitution were made public.
In essence, complaints that an Executive Order of the magnitude of the NDAA going much beyond an old-standing EO exception to the rights granted the American people by the U.S. Constitution (only in times of nuclear war can the U.S. Constitution be suspended) may be surprisingly unreasonable, if, in fact, Fukushima’s nuclear radiation contaminating U.S. soil was indeed the reason for such a politically inflammatory act by a sitting U.S. president. The debate, then, would be: do the American people still have the right to know if that right would include the likelihood a dangerous and unpredictable level of panic?
“And there was an actual letter that came from the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) telling physicians in California not to put people on potassium iodide (KI),” Consolo continued. “And the only thing that I can draw from that is they didn’t want to panic people; they didn’t want them to know how bad the situation is. But the problem is that the situation is ongoing.
From the U.S. FDA Web site.
The United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recommends that all children internally contaminated with (or likely to be internally contaminated with) radioactive iodine take KI, unless they have known allergies to iodine. Children from newborn to 18 years of age are the most sensitive to the potentially harmful effects of radioactive iodine.
Consolo also noted that the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) suddenly stopped testing rainwater, soil and milk for contamination two weeks following the disaster. But private tests conducted after the EPA stopped its testing, including ones performed by the University of California at Berkeley, in particular, reported “in November, that the levels of cesium in cow’s milk are actually 150 percent higher than they were in April of last year,” she paraphrased.
Consolo intimated that the EPA stopped testing because its reports would eventually become available to the public through the inevitable Freedom of Information requests, giving rise to the speculation for the stoppage among many others in the nuclear community as a possible reason for the EPA’s withdrawal and the progressively worsening data it would need to conceal through time.
“Those reactors are steaming constantly. . . They’re dumping nine tons of water on each reactor and spent fuel pool all day long and that water is going into the ocean.” Consolo continued. “Our storms are generated out of this huge radiation slick off the coast of Japan and this all gets rained out over the West coast of Canada and the United States.”
She goes on to say that rumblings within the nuclear safety community include strong recommendations for enacting the protocol of evacuation of Tokyo and other major cities of Japan. With a total population of approximately 35 million people affected by an evacuation within the world’s third-largest economy, the already-highly-fragile global economy would immediately drop to free fall as currency and bond traders would predictably sell their holdings at any price to get out of the way of a total collapse of the financial system.
“There are a lot of people who have left Tokyo and they’ve moved with their children and one spouse has stayed behind to work,” Consolo said.
“We’re talking about an end to a nation,” TruNews host Rick Wiles interjected.
“Yeah, which I think is part of the reason, like I said from a global economic prospective is, why it’s not being talked about,” Consolo continued. “It’s a very serious situation that’s going to have very serious ramifications for Japan” and the world.
