This evening I find that a Comment has been left here @ SO'W asking,
Where is Leuren Moret? Given her 'independent scientist' status and the criminal acts being perpetrated within every institution, we may well ask if she is okay.
'After the first week of June" (2011) seems to be the last sighting of the doctor so I shall keep my antennae revolving in case some word of the scientific whistle blower's whereabouts wafts by upon the wind. Will you as well? Hopefully she is safe, perhaps On Vacation, or in hiding and no one who has read her reports would fail to understand the reason for discretion.
For you, a snippet from the above-linked article which you may think curious:
National Security Memo 200, dated April 24, 1974, and titled “Implications of world wide population growth for U.S. security & overseas interests,” says:
“Dr. Henry Kissinger proposed in his memorandum to the NSC that ‘depopulation should be the highest priority of U.S. foreign policy towards the Third World.’ He quoted reasons of national security, and because (t)he U.S. economy will require large and increasing amounts of minerals from abroad, especially from less-developed countries...Wherever a lessening of population can increase the prospects for such stability, population policy becomes relevant to resources, supplies and to the economic interests of U.S.”
Recently Leuren Moret has become known for her assertions about the Fukushima Japan Nuclear Meltdown. In March 2011, she was interviewed saying that the nuclear catastrophe in Japan 'was no accident'.
And Moret has stated that most of the world's uranium is owned by Jacob Rothschild, of international banking fame.
Then from 2004, you may wish to read a published report with Leuren Moret quoted on the topic of depleted uranium (DU) which the US has spewed all over Iraq and beyond: Washington's secret nuclear war. Guess it's dirty but no secret, right?
As you know, the 'half life' (length of time it takes for a mere half of the atoms to decay) of DU is 4.5 billion years. Guess the globally powerful, syndicated social engineers and 'imagineers' of that bet-on-both-sides (like Eric Cantor against the US dollar) speculation persuasion bethink themselves to have somehow cheated death since their destructive handiwork, for all intents and purposes, never degrades into perpetuity.
Well, I do hope you caught Amy Goodman interviewing Julian Assange in London, UK earlier on Saturday (7.2.11) but if not, it's available to you on video @ Democracy Now!
Maybe the quote noted below applies to much that's going on in our nation and across the globe, circa 2011, and with Independence Day 2011 this Monday, it reminds me of that vague sense of integrity we once imagined ourselves to possess as it was often expressed in the world by US politicians and public officials.
Nowadays, Washington's political, financial, and ideological demons lounge about the Halls of Power so fiercely and finally and do enormous amounts of harm to The Commons that they show themselves to be sorely in need of exorcism every day and twice at night, apparently - and I'm not even Catholic.
Have you read this one before from another era's whistle blower?
"When the President starts lying, he begins to need evidence to back up his lies because in this democracy he is questioned on his statements. It then percolates down through the bureaucracy that you are helping the Boss if you come up with evidence that is supportive of our public position and you are distinctly unhelpful if you commit to paper statements that might leak to the wrong people.
The effect of that is to poison the flow of information to the President himself and to create a situation where a President can be almost, to use a metaphor, psychotically divorced from the realities in which he is acting...."
- Daniel Ellsburg to the US Senate on Foreign Relations, May 13, 1970
That's 41 years ago this past May 13th. And still we learn nothing.
Astro-Peeks at DC Freaks
At noon in DC on May 13, 1970, Sun was in Aries, Moon in Cancer, a Fire-Water blend of steamy energies. It's a self-protective, temperamental, clannish, yet highly artistic combo which is shared natally by poet Robert Frost who thought that,
"Americans are like a rich father who wishes he knew how to give his son the hardships that made him rich."
Don't look now, but since Bush-Cheney Heist 2008, I do believe many Americans have figured out that Corporate America is in process of happily taking care of that wish in the Hardships Department.
Now! Please leave links to articles in a Comment concerning recent news about Leuren Moret if you have any. If possible, I really would like to know that the lady is safe and sound even if she's keeping quiet or gone into hiding for personal safety's sake. For those are the sorts of times in which we live. jc
