BRAVE WHISTLE BLOWER HEROES

Dear good ones,

Conscientious whistle blowers  striving for more honest world integrity and equality risk their lives for knowledge everyone should know, especially about radically changing climate.  Here is my latest essay on this subject.

"You cannot know what is right until you know what is wrong."

–Nelson Mandela (1918–November 5, 2013)
who brought an end to South African  apartheid

    Forces railing against knowledge and truth are totalitarian acts of fearful cowards.  Censorship denying human rights, libraries set on fire (such as Pauline Christians did to the ancient Great Alexander Library in Egypt protecting one-of-a-kind scrolls) and protesters confined behind orange mess squelch freedom of expression.  Religio-racist archaic roots continue to entangle as nations vow extermination and genocide against one another. A world gone mad has inherent right to know secrets of any nation hiding illegal, inhumane aggression and militant climate warfare–what are ongoing destroyers of life, liberty and happiness. Conscientious whistle blowers cast spotlights on clandestine corporate governments  leaking facts about leaking radioactive cancerous munitions and their satanic waste, such as depleted radioactive uranium (DU) causing mental deficiencies and gross birth deformities.  Courageous heroes risking their lives in unearthing corrupt dealings are to be commended for their constitutional conscience–nature's ability to confront war catastrophes in the open, what is breaking down inherent morality and justice in human minds.                  
     Ronald Lee Ridenhour, former Vietnam War infantryman turned journalist, exposed the My Lai massacre when 500 Vietnamese villages and their residents were burned to ashes, including babies and their puppies.  Increasing numbers of whistle blower heroes for human rights must be protected, not incarcerated. As a result of Ridenhour's courage, Lt. William Calley and five other warriors were court-marshialed.  One of the combatants fired a round from an M-16 on a war-torn three-year old trying to stop his initial wound from bleeding. Another soldier, one who had not sold his conscience to the devil, shot himself in the foot so he couldn't take part in the primitive slaughter.  Ridenhour passionately wrote, "Some people . . . will do anything someone in authority will tell them to.  Government institutions have a reflective reaction to exposure of internal corruption and wrongdoing.  Their first response is to lie, conceal and cover up." 
                  This Whistle blower is honored by the Ron Ridenhour Foundation through its Prizes that keep alive the memory of his great service–courage in a long letter describing vivid details how civilians inhabitants within boundaries of their homes, coded as "Pinkville," died in streams of blood. Most of these barbaric war atrocities are never smoked out and reported.  Winston Churchill said, "A country without a conscience is a country without a soul, and a country without a soul is a country that will not survive."
                  Daniel Ellsberg who worked for the Department of Defense, originally the War Department, exposed the Pentagon Papers
in 1971. At that time he was pelted with derogatory names, such as traitor and terrorist. In his defense of later whistleblowers, he said succinctly. "If I released the Pentagon Papers today, the same rhetoric what was made about me, would be used against Julian Assange and Bradly Manning.  But they are no more terrorists than I am."
      Cyber expert Aaron Swartze fought against files and journals not freely available to the public–locked up by profit-making corporative power, what's not constitutional and defies freedom of conversation and journalism. Constraining threats targeted against whistle blowers are mounting ever since 2001 when the Patriot Act was passed to stifle and crush free thought through zealot nationalism that is approaching fascism. Federal threat of 35 years imprisonment and a $1 million fine for revealing invaluable information for public access precipitated Swartze's suicide in 2013. His tragic death awakened reality, the need to expose clandestine political chicanery hiding out under malicious espionage called "collateral damage"–people killing.   International Law prohibits rural battlefields from taking place on modern city streets where children play and noncombatants work and shop,  This law and others as well prohibit wars from killing children, especially sanctions against these who are harmed the most.
                  Jeremy Scahill is the author of Blackwater, an international best seller.  He also wrote the Rise of World's Most powerful Mercenary Army, and Dirty Wars: The World on a Battlefield, a New York Times bestseller.  He is twice-time winner of the George Polk Book Award, with the Puffin Foundation and a member of the Fellow Nation Institute.  Scahill has a national security position with The Nation magazine.  He is also a recipient of the Donald Windham-Sandy M. Campbell Literary Prize at Yale University. In Dirty Wars he exposed candid American secret aggression and unmanned drone vehicles, all recorded while Scahill was reporting from Afghanistan, Yemen, Iraq, Somalia and former Yugoslavia. A documentary is applauded by Democracy Now! Free Speech with Amy Goodman and Juan Gonzales, as well as the Thom Hartmann program.  Scahill produced and was featured in the film since he visited the targeted sites and talked with non-combatant victims terrorized with death and violence, even during a wedding–all very dangerous journeys.
                  Whistle-blower, Julian Assange, is founder and editor-in-chief of WikiLeak. He is now under protective asylum. In 2009 he was the recipient of Amnesty International UK Media Award for exposure of extradition assassination in Kenya.  In accepting his award, this Australian publisher and journalist wrote, "It is a refueling of courage and strength of Kenyan civil society that the injustice was documented."  Crowds internationally are now shouting, "Free Assange."
                  Edward Snowden received the Sam Adams Award in 1913 for disclosing secretive mass surveillance by the US National Security Agency (NSA).  He was also honored by Glasgow Scotland's University students–one hundred percent who elected him their rector for three years. This whistle blower who risked his life along with other conscientious people in speaking out with the truth was also nominated for the Nobel Peace Laureate for 2014.  What he contributed is invaluable­–a great effort for a more stable and peaceful Earth, capitalized for respect.  He has forced a new debate over global security and privacy. Snowden's report uncovered the fact that the US spied on the Copenhagen, Denmark summit talks involving 192 nations discussing drastic weather change and its causes.  Although the US has a reputation for debunking climate change as not man-made–despite alarming findings by world scientists on how wars enormously increase carbon above normal measures–it is a known fact that international and civil wars are the largest culprits of gasoline and petroleum products worldwide, with advanced nations now charging huge taxes for the CO2 polluting industrial military boot print. We already know that black gun powder (a mixture of charcoal, saltpeter and sulfur) will cause rain after a battle.  War is the most lethal serial killer and the largest carbon polluter in the world.
      Climate change through warfare has lifted its ugly head when the US caused the monsoon season to last longer during the Vietnam War (1959-1975) on the Ho Chi Minh trail to prevent munitions supplies from getting through lines of battle from the opposition.  The army seeded clouds with chemicals to keep the torrent of rain lasting much longer than usual.  When the US bombarded Laos on the Ho Chi Minh trail running through Laos–the longest bombed nation in world history with millions of cluster bomblets–teams of women are still detonating the duds and continue to lose their lives, along with their curious children picking up the munitions after the war ended.
                  Edward Snowden is concerned over world welfare.  We the people all paid dearly through our national treasury that taxpayers' funds–the exorbitant price of child-deforming munitions–unnecessary, futile and obsolete, with a new-age cold war of high-frequency radio waves and laser beams through man-made manipulated climate change. Today even conventional lethal chemical, radioactive weapons are illegal due to them being weapons of massive devastation. These toadstool clouds of explosions and nuclear supersonic and warhead missiles cause cancerous fallout and emissions that are accumulative–the most explosive poisonous greenhouse gases that are destroying Earth's ecological system and all forms of life. But instead the world is still seething with barbaric slaughter ever since the entrance of man on this planet.  The reckless, subject- to-error military accidentally and on purpose dropped at least seven hydrogen bombs in the ocean and on Spain.  So how can we trust the brass that betray us with lethal climate change warfare?
                  Climate change has now escalated to the 1993 HAARP military program in Alaska–High-Frequency Auroral  Research that alter global weather through Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis) and involves laser beams that deeply disturbs the Earth with vibrations, maybe even strong enough to affect fault lines and tectonic plates, rock foundations of continents and islands. So whose fault is it?–as global nature gets out of control with freak snowstorms and increased earthquakes?  It was Edward Teller who invented the backyard bomb. If it had been manufactured it would be impossible to transport due to burden of weight from multi-kilotons of man-made plutonium.  But if didn't have to be moved.  His concept was to just light it and the entire Earth would incinerate–friends and foes alike! 
     Peter Seller's mad Dr. Strangelove, referring to Teller, comes to mind.  This inventor of the hydrogen bomb with Stanislaw Ulam, hoodwinked one president after another into "Star War" panic. It's the asteroids we must fight by teaming with other nations for a common shield to protect all of us.  We must research and put our scientists to work in preventing the end of Earth, instead of killing our only sustenance as we are dumped out with the bath water.  Although the "haarpers" deny conspiracy theories, in a real democracy sunshine needs to open debate to discuss what is really going on regarding world militarises tampering with global weather.  We already know that illicit chemical, radioactive nuclear child-deforming munitions can trigger earthquakes that in turn can erupt into flaming volcanoes that lead to tsunamis.
                  Snowden's main support in his exposures of the NSA is Glenn Greenwald who instrumentally got word out about corporate government secrets negatively affecting the unsuspecting world at large.  Greenwald  and other journalists Ewen MacAskill, Laura Poitras and Barton Gellman won the Polk Award for their excellent and  extensive overage of Snowden's case.
                  Army soldier Bradly Manning leaked secret corporate government documents. This whistle blower received the Sam (A) Adams Integrity Prize (SAAII) for intelligence and ethics in 2014.  Manning was awarded for revealing essential information about the toll and cause of civilian casualties in Iraq–human rights abuses by the United States and its allies.
                  It is interesting that all the above whistle-blowers and their prestigious awards revealed important issues about human rights. The fact that whistle blowers expose injustice and inequality in corporate governments, is an indication that leaks are quintessential for Earth's people to know, in particular military bases leaking lethal chemical, radioactive baby deforming and aborting munitions  "in the name of God."                  Any aggressive nation that invades, attacks and occupies a foreign country is a terrorist and youth-murderer under the cloak of war, what President Dwight D. Eisenhower would agree. Nation's powerful militarises putting young people in harm's way through battlefield alters of sacrifices are terrorists as the officials, out of harm's way, puff up in arrogance.  It has been suggested by many people that ugly war leaders who want to confront the world voices of the Earth steadily rising up to end endless wars, should be the ones who fight in wars.  Those who have never experienced the carnage of war have no conception of what military-trained youths have to endure, many who are killed or maimed and often commit suicide from seeing all the damage, even drone operators viewing the same "blood and guts" on cold computer screens.
                  Whistle blowers are the real heroes. Through their own power and strength they risk danger in order to make a better world where the primary law is–"Don't do unto others what you don't want others to do to you.  This is the wisdom of the world's greatest prophets, often viewed as deities, who by the way are all people of dark complexion from their ancestors having lived near the equator for centuries of time and sunshine.

TWO SCORPIONS IN A BOTTLE

Hello good ones.  Disturbing as it is, what should alarm everyone is climate control warfare.  Years of cold war nuclear war fears are now coupled with  military nations tampering with the weather to control warfare power.  After years of research and writing my latest essay is as follows:

Mame



TWO SCORPIONS IN A BOTTLE
                   –Illicit Climate Warfare and Toxic, Chemical-Radioactive Youth-Killing Munitions
Helene Smith © copyright 2013

"We may be likened to two scorpions in a bottle, each capable of killing the other but only through risk of his own life. The atomic bomb made the prospect of future wars unendurable."

–Robert Oppenheimer Manhattan Project director, who with other nuclear physicists and army generals, adamantly opposed nuclear retaliation by dropping radioactive bombs on humanity and all life

 "There is no safety in wars."– Virgil, born in 70 BCE


Why was the Pentagon–with enough super power to blow up Earth in its entirety–bombarded September 11, 200l? How did all those wasted trillions of dollars of warfare keep us safe–for nothing? Not even the most advanced, super arsenals can keep any nation safe in crowds because surprise attack is what it is. SURPRISE!– what lifts you right off your feet, now matter how hard to try to cover every possible way–because it catches you by surprise, no matter what you prepare.  As Albert Einstein wrote, "If you want absolute security­­–go to prison. There you can get everything except freedom.
  First of all, surprise attack from an unheard of method using one's own airplanes involves the 2001 administration ignoring a catastrophic threat to assault America, Washington DC and New York City the most vulnerable targets. The warning involved unwanted US military bases leaking pollutants removed from Saudi Arabian soil. This complaint reaches even more distant posts as surplus deadly petroleum and other toxic waste is stockpiled and dumped worldwide in around 5000 American posts, especially dirty messes from abandoned ones contaminating foreign land. Even not-so-subtle clandestine espionage cannot stop revenge attack that boomerangs back to offenders of International Law, even when they refuse to recognize this quintessential importance.
This serious threat was never even discussed before September 11, 2001–other than a silent warning news-crawl that went across international television, what many people neglect to read or remember. This neglect by one administration that refused to talk with the opposition caused four thousand American deaths plus an untold amount of diseases from emissions–toxic petroleum and chemical poisons rising from the World Trade Center as it mysteriously collapsed to the ground like intentional demolition.
The United States would never permit any foreign military base on its land, yet it is OK within arrogant minds to police the rest of the world, just as Japan in recent years has revolted about a new US post on its land.  And why are we still paying millions of dollars to maintain bases in Germany, even as the fearful, dysfunctional unelected regulatory Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA–what First Nations call "Bad Indian Affairs" (for good reason)–snoop on sovereign reservations, the last sacred lands of the indigenous people first to live for thousands of years in the Americas.
Surprise attack by single suicide bombers can explode anywhere in a crowd at any time–with atomic bombs and supersonic missiles impractical to use due to millions of collateral damage by killer machines. Collateral damage, euphemistic jargon the military coined during the Vietnam War, is a war crime since bombs intentionally kill in any war attack, what disrupts the constitutional and inherent rights of humanity. Cancer-causing munitions inevitably maim and cause deaths to combatants and noncombatants alike as soon as they are dropped no matter who tries to cover-up the initial action.  Even drone warfare, in frank terms, is now called people killers, started by the same 2001 regime. "Friendly fire" is the epitome of an oxymoron with the military infamous for making light of war crime maneuvers, the dumbing down of America.  Actually United States citizens are smarter than that. All national war departments, euphemized as defense, are defenseless since their goal is youth-killing aggression. Powerful, super expensive lethal munitions are obsolete and unlawful for modern urban street zones under International Humanitarian Law, Geneva Protocols and laws respecting protection of children unfortunately not enforced, is due to violations of war crimes. Nuclear nations are totally vulnerable as they still suck on nuclear power as false pacifiers, wizards teats, impossible to foster peace. The bigger the corporate bomb the bigger the bucks that taxpayers have to dole out. We are sitting ducks in a shattered world of shock and awe revenge played out on the game board of desolate war.
                  The federal government committed its first biological warfare against American Indians through intentional extermination–blanket "gifts" from smallpox hospitals. In the 1950s adjacent to their last inherent lands, federal proving grounds were taken over for testing nuclear bombs, marked as danger zones in former atlases–over 2,000 (1,000 of them US) making Earth resemble Mercury, a planet riddled with craters.  Nuclear waste deposited on their reservations in a dump and run policy was another tragedy, along with radioactive raffinated waste (oil not dissolved in refineries) used as fertilizer. But looking beyond the definition, agriculturalists are alarmed as fields are sprayed with raffinated converted radioactive waste from milled uranium used for making nuclear fuel rods causing deaths of farm animals and gross malformations in new born livestock, as well as 9-leggedf frogs in the areas polluted.
                  US controlled atolls such as the Marshall Islands, the largest Indonesian island group, includes Runit Island–properly named–now the trashcan of the Northern Pacific for radioactive soil, most of which was shipped by megaton loads to  Maryland and other sites.  The inhabitants, called savages since they were not "white," became human guinea pigs under nuclear fallout.  Inhumane top-secret military injections of plutonium to soldiers and prisoners was essentially war torture.  The US is the foremost exporter of torture devices according to Amnesty International.  All these atrocities amount to planned genocide targeted against dark or so-called "yellow " complexioned people–"gooks"–part of army training to demean the opposition, through racist wars, as award-winning author of the Good Earth, Pearl Buck, chided US citizens for labeling Asians as yellow.
                  The military used deadly toxic dioxin, Agent Orange–what causes cancer and birth defects, on America's indigenous people before spraying it in Vietnam, Cambodia, and Laos (also dumped by millions of surplus gallons in Korea and elsewhere). The US bombarded Laos with millions of cluster bomblets (shrapnel invented in the 1700s), "the worst bombed nation for the longest time in the history of the world"–the Ho Chi Minh trail running through a country that never harmed or attacked the US.  Which brings up an important sobering fact of war raising up its ugly head–we must stop thinking of nations as enemies. President Lincoln believed in making friends instead, the best advice against the gospel of war.  War epitomizes the worst serial crime in the world.                  On this trail the same army used insidious climate warfare by seeding nature's clouds with chemical geo-engineering prolonging the monsoon season to stop weapons from Communists getting through from opposing troops in the Vietnam War–all kept secret from the public by the corporate government for decades.  This illegal manipulation of nature, now adds more deadly methods through electromagnetic "sky heater" waves and highly intensive laser beams penetrating deep into Earth's surface.   A perilous corporate-lobbying force is poisoning Earth's ecological system threatening with climate war madness–all of which is outlawed and cancerous to the perpetrators and their families along the rest of the world? This escalation of climate change, getting out of control by belligerent over-the-top zealots holding the globe hostage, is quintessentially a global warning!–yes, an alarming global warning! 
                  Coming through the nuclear age that is fast destroying Earth and its people, war aggression has dramatically risen on the horizon to radical weather change through climate warfare called HAARP located out of range of our minds in Alaska.  There it pushes jet streams now off course from fast flowing streams of water vapor heating the ionosphere over targeted regions with microwaves causing record-breaking snowfalls and weather anomalies, out of the ordinary, according to prominent sources. Closed down in 2013, HAARP is now going through an alarming corporate change to make it even more potent, with patents on these devices flying around like paper kites.  Former Secretary of Defense, William Cohen, explains how the army is disturbingly modulating weather patterns that can trigger earthquakes and volcanic eruptions that in turn set off tsunamies.  We don't have to send in the clowns in this three-ring circus.  They're already here.
                  T. S. Elliot in The Love Song of J. Alfred  Prufrock, infers trivial social discussions in poetry, "and people come and go talking of Michelangelo" while the populace today also ignores essential discussion over climate warfare.  Whistle-blower Edward Snowden risked his life for exposing world catastrophe through military tampering with nature–with the sky "air glow" changing to primary colors, mainly the color green aurora. The Northern Lights, Aurora Borealis, means "dawn."  Scientists are now calling these war devises vandalism of the sky.  When the ionosphere, the uppermost part of the atmosphere, is greatly disturbed, atmosphere conditions below are also disturbed. Public rhetoric is focused on name-calling such as traitor, what happened to Daniel Ellsberg when he disclosed the Pentagon Papers. Hindsight is 20-20.  But now he is hailed as a hero, also pertaining to Snowden who alerted the public about the dangerous manipulation of climate warfare.  His revelation of what the war department, original name now euphemized, has been committing for decades against the welfare of Earth as corporate government is recklessly monkeying with global warming. But now we know through the courage of Edward Snowden and world scientists that corporate feds kept secrets from the public until recent years.  We also know whose fault it is, as fast rising weather change is adversely affecting all life. Not even geological exports know how the planet is wired underground. Fault lines are revealing, but as previously said, one war-made earthquake can cause volcanoes to erupt, sometimes hundreds of miles away and after periods of time. Volcanic activity requires a source of internal heat, with centuries of accumulate war munitions and emissions stoking the eruptions.
                  Even unintentional catastrophic atrocities result from a reckless military Earth shaking war crime–by masters of weapons of massive devastation called genocide, are all illegal. Man-made toxic greenhouse emissions and nuclear munitions coupled with climate warfare result in freak changes in nature threatening planetary suicide for Earth and its peoples boiling to death. Unfortunately facts seldom solve political controversy with most people focusing on the effect instead of the cause that is electronically short-circuiting the planet.  This satanic warfare, with nations now zapping one another instead of whacking one another with nuclear bombs is the newest cold war research having the potential of taking as many or more lives than conventional or nuclear wars.  Perhaps this is the intention of warmongers who fixate on cutting down world populations.                   Manipulation of global weather can change vast areas of Earth by destroying crops through agricultural and ecological systems and through fracturing oilrigs drilling for war that cause chemical explosions underground as well as above. This new pattern of climate warfare, that has not been researched for all of its side-effects can even vibrate tectonic plates that provide the foundation of continents and islands! It is the escaping of hot air that has been fueling Earth for centuries of accumulative hostile religious, racial wars, now increasing at a fast rate.  War explosions, emissions and toadstool clouds of nuclear bombing and testing–with proving grounds still proving that the ground is still contaminated–all indicate war is the killing factor of human extermination, along with nature and wildlife.
                  But who is taking into account all the children, aborted war-torn babies and non-combatants that will die in the ethnic cleansing thrown out with the bath water through accumulate toxic chemical-radioactive munitions now being replaced with radio beams transmitting powerful frequency waves.  Such  catastrophic mentality has the capability of hastening the demise of Earth. Corporate wars are endless in a war economy controlled by munitions and weapons factories.  Zbigniew Brezezinski, former professor of Columbia University, revealed in 1970 that weather warfare can alter human mental capacity under control of the devil-may-care military proud to recruit young soldiers sacrificing their lives on archaic. battlefield  alters  as war turkeys direct action out of harms way.  The professor stated: "Artificially-excited electronic strokes could lead to patterns that seriously impair brain performance of very large populations targeted regions" for exploitation and prolonging wars. For centuries the world has endured the empowerment of religiosity controlling the world.  Now the military has taken over the Inquisition of the mind in magnitudes never seen before. 
                  Pandemic crises from war pesticides and herbicides and nerve gases (Nazi-developed) result in Parkinson's, Lou Gehrig's, and Hodgkin's diseases, especially critical among combat soldiers.  But biological and chemical munitions are now taboo.  More specifically through the 1899 Hague Convention, the Geneva Protocol of 1925, and the 1993 re-enforcement these munitions unlawful, radioactive weapons, the dirtiest fuel of all, keep killing with nuclear supersonic nosecone missiles and their pernicious waste recklessly threatening everyone's lives and Earth, our only sustenance capitalized for respect?  Instead of eliminating the last nuclear weapons and arsenals, the US still manufactures more unlawful weapons of massive destruction with a submarine missile as powerful as a hydrogen bomb, deceitfully disguised under an innocuous name, "Reliable Replacement Warheads."                   Irresponsible hands of reckless, hothead war heads  among arrogant leaders with the audacity to nuke nations is nothing less than criminal holocaustic devastation. If we were living during Babylonian days any such perpetrators shattering Earth and its people would themselves be nuked!–an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth, so said King Hammurabi of Bablyon. But this law is the most dangerous since revenge boomerangs. The trouble is racism lurking underneath the venom.  So-called "white" supremacy has a history of having no qualms in killing people of different cultures and having more protective pigment than themselves.  Nuclear energy is the most dangerous fuel. If something goes wrong, there goes the nation, literally and nuclear fallout to the rest of Earth.  Instead of shutting down the government, shut down illegal child-killing wars. We should fear our own nuclear reactors close to us instead of some distant country. Daily nuclear reactors spew out cancerous emissions. 
                  Seven H-bombs accidentally dropped into warming seas and two-dozen runway accidents carrying hydrogen bombs should have jolted the world into action!  But instead the populace remains silent despite the recklessness. Nuclear submarines secretly communicate under water against its own citizens as radioactive munitions and marine equipment are causing the seas to become hot with polar ice melting.  When any department that has death of others as it's goal and says, "Trust us!"–beware and do not be naive people. The military is the planet's biggest gas-guzzler that increases World Bank's tabulation of carbon-black boot print with excessive CO2, affecting a radical environment caused by fanatical holy wars.  But mad men rave, "Bring 'em on!"  Ben Franklin said, "There never was a good war."                  Nuclear waste depository at Hanford, Washington, the oldest leaking radioactive dumping grounds in America ever since WWII, now threatens First Nation reservations, the Columbia River and Oregon. Internationally nuclear dumping persists even along the Somolian coast. This atrocity has turned men into renegades to protect their people from cancer and malformed infants, all left out in a recent film on pirates of the sea.  Federal Rocky Mountain Depository near Denver, Colorado where deadly sarin nerve was produced and stored, caused a multitude of earthquakes when the army drilled into unstable rock. Wars also erupt into earthquakes from their own combustion power. With no one accountable for war disaster and collateral damage to non-combatants as well as combatants, makes International Criminal Court quintessential as the chief world defense institution against defenseless war–especially when illegal munitions, nuclear reactors and climate warfare are all subject to human error or terror.
                   Edward Teller, co-father of the hydrogen bomb within the Manhattan Project, pushed his way into Capitol Hill. Few people know that his "backyard nuclear bomb" was so burdened with kilotons of Earth destroyers that it was too heavy to move. But transportation was not an issue.  If it had made and set off, it would incinerate the entire planet! Teller, portrayed in Peter Seller's movie, Dr. Strangelove, was instrumental in provoking powerful corporate government positions into the most deadly munitions possible–presidents ever since Harry Truman, Ronald Reagan and other presidents have been hoodwinked with man-made "Stars Wars."  All the trillions of dollars on such technology could instead have been used for world teamwork in a shield for deflecting asteroids and our own space debris coming back to us. How many people know that the nuclear physicist inventors of these bombs, following corporate government orders, secretly lived in fear that the H-bomb would set afire nitrogen around the globe?  But–they did it anyway!–as they risked and gambled the entire ecosystem of all life, the only heavenly body we know about in the Milky Way and in the entire world–devised by machismo warriors defying the will of people, worldwide.  Are these warmonger bullies the ones that should be elected to administrations of power?  Men and women the world over are fast expressing shame over military power taking over space for arrogant global superiority that makes the power nations vulnerable for attack.  Right now space cadettes yearning for bigger and more damaging wars are even dreaming of US military bases on the moon. As insanity reigns as they see in their minds foxholes that would be greater protection than those on Earth! 
                   But the coup de grĂ¢ce of war action and its arsenals kindle abortions in mothers' wombs. "Depleted" uranium-altered genes–generation after generation–beget life-long birth defects and mental problems.  Malformed babies of combat parents and women trapped in urban war zones in contact with mutative munitions are silent victims, an alarming urgency being ignored–little kids suffering from unbelievable abnormalities and a plethora of cleft palettes among developing-nations.  Who would want to live in a world where the military controls nature and the weather causing the demise of our planet?   What woman would want to live in a world that still kills her children and makes them invalids all their lives with the head honchos envisioning ribbons, medals and brass buttons popping with pride?  What woman could love such a man that works for the end of beautiful Earth and its majesty from shores to shores?  What woman would want to subject her children to such a hell on Earth, now with plans for cosmic wars in space? What good is space superiority for any nation in the new space wars when children and mothers are all grieving their aborted, demented babies from man's madanning obsession for first place in war? And where is all the toxic space waste going to go?  Who would want to live in space ship traffic jams of solar waste, while wistfully looking up in the sky and seeing dead Earth through jaded eyes?   And how many people know that the nuclear physicist inventors of these bombs, following corporate government orders, secretly lived in fear that the H-bomb would set afire nitrogen around the globe.  But–they did it anyway!–as they risked and gambled the entire ecosystem of all life, the only heavenly body we know about in the Milky Way and in the entire world–devised by machismo warriors defying the will of people, worldwide.  Are these warmonger bullies the ones that should be elected to administrations of power?  How about electing more nurturing women in power positions?  What kind of madness is being pushed down our throats? What ever happened with sane minds seeking peace and prosperity for all, instead of powerful munitions and weaponry corporations all vying for first place in supplying space wars?  This gold rush for space wars mirrors men beaming each other up as they get off on their own power of explosives and climate warfare?  Does DOD really stand for GOD–God of Defense with warriors playing roles of deities?  No international warring high official need to ever go to church again because they ignore what Jesus of Nazareth and all the other great prophets taught– the most important rule of all–"Don't do to others what you don't want others do to you."  These words represent the real savior of the Earth, echoed by good religions worldwide–the real gold, a universal rule.   
All the trillions of dollars wasted on war technology could have been better used for pursuing positive life, liberty and happiness instead of macabre  death machines. A call to all nations is to immediately organize International Peace Departments whose sole purpose is to prevent war for defense against outlawed munitions and Climate warfare. Check and balance is quintessential since international harmony does not deplete national treasuries that devour funds taken from unbiased education, health and infrastructure regarding new bridges, clean water and other essentials. Recruit youths for peace instead of death. Law and order must prevail through professional diplomacy, arbitration, negotiation and serious rhetoric versus wars.  When such measures fail, war is the result.  Brave military personnel will always be essential for rescuing millions of victims of climate disasters caused by nuclear wars upsetting nature–global help instead of global horror. Service forces already protect national historic sites and provide aid to all humanity.  They are needed to help each nation through its own problems of upset nature.
Zillions of funds could be saved by obeying law and order already on the books. Nuclear munitions bans by International Criminal Court (ICC) must be enforced on urban battlegrounds where children play­–modern urban cities especially. No institution is above the law.  If they are it is a figment of their imagination. Such enforcement from a fresh, new department would eliminate all war expenses and makes possible equitable salaries for peace employees and government-issued uniforms, medals, epaulettes, awards, and bright colored-ribbons (originating with First American brave coups in touching the enemy).  Again this proposal applies to all global war departments, what would permit funds for free education, health care and bring down national debts. Courageous peace workers are also worthy of being saluted, for promoting life instead of death.
The sun alone is capable of global energy, along with other alternative energy. But it would be outright economical suicide for change immediately from dinosaur fuels to alternative one due to inevitable inertia of tribal politics dragging its military boots.  However, what immediately must be done is to fund peace instead of war through progressive solar, geothermal, oceanic, biomass such as recycling food waste for fuel and hydro energy in order to make the quickest transition as possible–what should have happened decades, even centuries ago. These industries will open up more job opportunities than negative industries killing off the owners and employees as well as their atmosphere in futile wars with the committers paying for aftermath reconstruction, although ancient artifacts in archaic wars are lost forever, such as in Mesopotamia (Iraq), in the Tigris-Euphrates Valley known as the "Cradle of Civilization." Under the imperial military of uncivilized aggression, we all are victims "for whom the bell tolls." The good people of Earth deserve more than endless child-killing wars that cause poverty as war represents gargantuan taxpayer expenses.
Bob Dylan's heart-wrenching lyrics from his song, Masters of War, reflects diabolical invasion, attack and occupation of war munitions in worldwide wombs:

"You've thrown the worst fear that can ever be hurled, fear to bring children into the world, for threatening my baby unborn and unnamed, you ain't worth the blood that runs in your veins."


The Greek drama, Lysistrata, depicts how women dealt with aggression in a unique way centuries ago.  They denied having sex with their partners until they ended the Peloponnesian wars.  Women in Portugal, also wearied by grief of wars, placed flowers in the business ends of cannons.  Long live the flower people

About the Author
Helene Smith, author of The Second Century of Dishonor  (regarding First American abuse following Helen Hunt Jackson's First Century of Dishonor in 1881), wrote the book (aka) Apsaalooka, The Crow Nation, with Mickey Old Coyote who supplied the history of his nation.  A copy of this illustrated 250 page illustrated documentary history, published and funded by the author, was given to all members of Congress, President, and Vice-President in 1992. The drama Fission, Fusion, Fission, written at request of Los Alamos nuclear physicist Bill Beyer, friend and employee of Stanislaw Ulam, co-father with Edward Teller of the H-bomb–was presented at University of Pittsburgh and Los Alamos Little Theater. Smith's book, the Shoshone-Bannock Pesticide Poisoning; concerned a pesticide poison she researched as an investigative journalist at the request of the sun dance leader, featured on the cover of the book. (see www.macdonaldsward.com)

 Miraculously, the author still has her blue eagle Junior Commandos badge from WWII!–too young to realize collecting scrap metal, cooking fat, milkweed pods, and paper was all about propaganda to extend WWI into a holocaust of the second world war.

THE ELEPHANT OUTSIDE THE LIVING ROOM

Good morning good ones.  Thinking about the recent giraffe killing in a zoo that protects wildlife, I'm  pondering how animals are abused, even as they are diminishing and becoming extinct in nature by toxic chemicals and radioactive nuclear wars and reactors–endless testing and weather changing climate warfare even confusing the flight migrations of birds. Man's greed for imperial control and ivory consumes his very soul.

So here is my poem about elephants.

Helene Smith

 “Three things in the world are ever present–the moon, the sun and truth.”–Buddha

THE ELEPHANT OUTSIDE THE LIVING ROOM

Noble beast of burden with intelligence forevermore,
Herbivorous, not even eating animal crackers galore,
Indian Ocean watch-guards of volcanic ash roar,
Eruptive earthquakes, Indonesia ­in 2004.

Shackles break–great strength in escaping all around,
Tossing humans with their trunks to higher ground.
Just as the sea rolled up the mountain, to beat
The tsunami, stopping before engulfing their feet.

Highly born pachyderm, with dermis so dense,
Aged beauty in inch-thick skin, in any sense.
But seldom is perceived how they suffer,
With tender skin prodded onward like a prisoner.

Imbued in nature they know so much
While healing wounds with mud and clay.
Those whose stomachs ache from cold,  
As they welcome prevailing trade winds, so bold.

O largest land-locked mammal the ancients told,
Like modern dinosaurs, war-torn and old,
Only survivors, the Proboscides, they say,
Prehistoric mammals, faithfully obey.

Wisely the leader of the herd a female,
Strides in milk and honey, a voice to every male.
Elephants, same in breadth as high, overland
Swings its nose, longer than Pinocchio, like a hand.

With largest world ears–some four feet wide;
Like poi along the South Pacific tide,
Also have Earth’s largest teeth, eating bails of hay
Like in a circus, wishing they could swim away.

Hannibal, great general of ancient Carthage.
Crossed the Alps and invaded Italy in outage.
With elephants carrying soldiers on their backs,
Tusks armed with swords for savage warrior attacks.

Patterns of justice for all the World to see,
So that man shall not forget all his gore,
The ploy of aggression that devastates each sea.
Elephants have good memories, no dumbos, you see.

Human infants so helpless cry,
As baby elephants mourn their mothers who die,
Those helping the needy and forlorn,
Deserve honors for protecting their own.

URGENT GLOBAL WARNING!

Good morning good ones.  And best wishes to you all struggling with the drastic climate change affecting the globe.

Here is the essay I told you about yesterday.   An important revision of the previous Global Warning!

Mame

GLOBAL WARNING!
–Illegal, Insecure Lethal Munitions and Climate Warfare  Devastating Earth and Its Babies

"There's no safety in war."
–Virgil (b. 70 BCE)

     Albert Einstein wrote, "If you want total security, go to prison . . . . The only thing lacking is freedom!"
International harmony is the most lasting security for any sane nation.  Ancient Greeks described "pandemic" as a disease affecting "all people."  Rampant world wars are youth-killers, what affects all families caught up in maladies that wars fuel. Damaged genes from toxic munitions passed on to children from combat parents handling caustic, hazardous weaponry cause grief to all­–as well as non-combatants caught in modern war zone cities.  Women especially trapped in crossfire of aggression give birth to deformed and mentally retarded infants, as wars also abort embryos–miscarriages provoked by gun smoke–lock, stalk and barrel. This is only the top of the volcano regarding war spoils and ill-gotten, illegal gains that metaphorically salt and ruin foreign lands through intentional damaged agricultural and ecological economies–not-so subtle subterfuge of drastic, catastrophic climate warfare.  The French have a word for this corruption–butin de guerra –the prize of war representing genetic genocide inside Earth's wombs silenced by futile wars that reflect failure to negotiate and communicate with diplomacy. 
     War has no victory–only in victory gardens even planted in pots on porches since corporate government is also monkeying with our modified food supplies–a real monkey on our backs.  Warrior administrations end up paying for damages done to foreign buildings, euphemized as "nation building," but they rarely attempt to clean up an environment of cancer and other diseases left behind. Surely democracy can be won without willingly sacrificing and gambling lives of children and combat youths on the alters of battlement!­–archaic  fear through burnt offerings as Abraham was willing to offer up his own son Isaac to the gods of thunder and war.  In committing wars everyone involved is a loser.   "Winnings" end up as birth defects in war-torn babies DNA, passed on from one generation to the next in pandemic measures, with mainstream media silent about aggressive atrocities and genocide.
                  Around 5000 worldwide US military bases are polluting Earth–capitalized for respect–with leaking lethal munitions, coal ash dumping, deady gasoline and petroleum run off, big tar sand spills and fractured Earth in drilling through shale to export oil abroad for fueling more wars.  These non-renewable devices poison ground water and aquifers, with no or few funds to remove the intoxicants. The United States would never permit a foreign military base on any of its land.  No political state has the right to violate International Law, even those not wanting to play fair in the game of war, and terrorize worldwide cities with corporate government still controlling traditionalist sovereign First Nation reservations and their stolen trust funds. Situated where Western military bases are deliberately located, these last sacred indigenous lands were marked in red– DANGER ZONES–in atlases from atom bomb testing and now dump and run radioactive nuclear waste–not for benefit of radioactively sick residents but tourists passing through "Indian" lands. The federal  excuse for dumping hazardous waste on what they call "fourth world" nations' land is money in return for lethal nuclear waste where the worst poverty is located in the Americas.  It's easy to bribe people who have no food on the table, so to speak.  These proving grounds prove how the military is still in an extermination mode. A peace department does not deal with chilling death machines. By the way, what does third world mean, and who's in first and second place? If you know, please tell me. It sounds like military euphemisms are made up to secretively hide the morbid truth. Even the lowest radiation is dangerous since it adds to Earth's natural irradiation, all accumulative–as Dr. Thom Hartmann reminds us on Free Speech TV and Amy Goodman and Juan Gonzales shares other truths on Democracy Now!   
                  Leave deadly filthy fuels in the ground and fund alternative, renewable energy research and facilities, with the sun powerful enough to fuel any space rocket, as natural rays never running out.  Again, making matters worst, the corporate government doesn't clean up its messes, what makes for "ugly Americans." Aggressive militarism is ruining world inhabitants and Earth, capitalized for respect. Illegal munitions whack inherent human rights through terrorism and violence. Mutant malformations from toxic weapons are grotesque–two headed Cyclops-eyed babies, missing brains, organs formed outside bodies, cleft pallets and elongated heads of genetic progeria syndrome–quickly aging infants. Chemical, radioactive weapons, including depleted Uranium (DU), have a world-wide pandemic brewing in a cauldron of wizard's poisons retarding future generations. Mutated inherent cancerous growth in DNA genes contaminate breast-feeding infants.
                   After inhumane, unmerciful attacks on Afghanistan and especially several in Fallujah, Iraq women are still having babies born with multiple mal-deformities making them afraid of pregnancy. This is also happening among US combatants and all soldiers experiencing savage military action. Bob Dylan's heart-wrenching lyrics, Masters of War, says it as it is,

"You've thrown the worst fear that can ever be hurled, fear to bring children into the world, for threatening my baby unborn and unnamed, you ain't worth the blood that runs in your veins."


Albert Einstein wrote even more incriminating words,

"How vile and despicable war seems to me.  I would rather be hacked to pieces than take part in such an abominable business. . . . Nothing will stop wars unless the people themselves refuse to go to war. "

   In fact, it is insidious to dangle the carrot of recruitment in faces of naive young people to be educated free if they sacrifice their entire lives as armed forces wounded, psychologically damaged, killed or suicide victims while non-combatants politicians out of harms way get off free.  Students don't have to become scapegoats for satanic, partisan wars.  Instead of wasting the national treasury and tax payers' money for obsolete bombs now escalated to climate warfare, all youths could receive non-b-ased education in college, university or tech and trade vocational schools free without any strings of extravagant government loans attache­d, what is holding young people back from getting jobs.  Even with the expense of free education for everyone, a non-warring corporate government would have enough money left over to fund the entire US health program as well as its educational advantage to all people not having to face the problems of poverty, what wars cause, along with drug abuse that opens up another section of  Pandora's Box.  In short, education teaches respect for others and helps everyone in a world not constantly threatened by people going berserk with guns when undisciplined human beings disregard feelings of others.
       War is the grossest serial killer in the world. Toxic munitions, now illegal according to International Law, cause Earth's worst un-prosecuted crimes. Wars, largest gas-guzzler and carbon-boot print of excessive CO2, cause filthiest emissions and dirtiest nuclear waste. Accumulated explosive emissions also provoke earthquakes, floods, draughts and catastrophic volcano eruptions melting glaciers in turn causing tsunamis. During the Vietnam War militant manipulated climate warfare over Laos's Ho Shi Minh Trail was secretly done to prolong the monsoon season so that opposing troops could not get through. The military continues to conduct even more dangerous devices through experimentation with the planet that supplies our only sustenance; Could these electromagnetic "sky heaters" and laser beams not only change weather with climate change, but also be out of control from a secret location in Alaska, as Russia is also doing on its own land?  Could a jet stream coming from Alaska change weather by military becoming even more malicious through vibrating the movement of tectonic plates, the foundations of continents and islands?  The reckless brass play god as they tamper  with worldwide nature that is losing countless numbers of species at a fast rate.  
     Earth's seas have become even hotter when seven or more carelessly handled hydrogen bombs were dropped in them from military error and planes carrying them crashing into one another, along with radioactive submarines abandoned or lost under the name of war.  Subs travel under polar ice with outmoded ones intentionally sunk, along with other military equipment dumped into oceans.  And we wonder why Earth is warming at accelerated rates from centuries of accumulative explosions and deadly emissions contaminating the atmosphere.  
     Revengeful suicide bombers angered by such military assaults on Earth and against non-"white" poor indigenous people often targeted for war, become human bombs. This shock and awe cranks up the boomerang of terrorism. Massive surveillance security cannot stop desperate men from taking their lives in surprise attack catching everyone off guard. Youth-killing, immoral wars are torturous and treacherous, all in the name of "God and false patriotism."   This is the most quintessential global warning!

"Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies theft from those who hunger . . . and are not fed, those who not clothed.  This world in arms spends the sweat of laborers, the genius of scientists, the hope of its children . . . . Under clouds of war, it is humanity hanging on a cross of iron."

–General-President Dwight D. Eisenhower

THE SOUND OF HARMONY

Good morning good ones,

All those wishing and working for international harmony.  It's such  wonderful music in  hearing people getting together in the Olympics for worldwide  peace instead of war.  The sound of shushing down a slope instead of  explosive youth-killing, child-deforming munitions emissions polluting the atmosphere.  We may run, but they will catch us–on land, in air and sea.

So heads up for my latest essay soon to follow.  Enjoy the day.

Mame, what my grandchildren call me
