Cointelpro, Provacateurs & Disinfo Agents

Comment: SOTT.net has repeatedly warned of the role played by COINTELPRO (CounterIntelligence Program) in the 9/11 Truth Movement. COINTELPRO's origins infiltrating political movements in the Civil Rights era are reasonably well known. But when we look at the history of COINTELPRO, it is clear that while groups have been infiltrated on a wide scale, the more successful operations have been those which are created from scratch by agents of the PTB. They know that people will begin to see through the wall of lies surrounding events sooner or later, so alternative groups are formed, fed resources and armed with a certain amount of information. They have vectored whole movements of people and in this way effectively neutralised any real opposition. Only by networking together what we can see of our reality can we learn to stalk the deception that is coming at us from every direction.

New Study: Cell Phones Kill Honey Bees, Specific Frequency Located.

A recent study has found that radiation from cell phones may be killing the honey bee population.

In a recent report in the journal Current Science, scientists are claiming that mobile phones are behind the disappearance of honey bees in Europe and North America.

They say radiation from cell phones is getting in the way of honey bees' navigation senses, making them so confused they lose their way home.

This new research may explain why the bee population has declined for years in what's being called Colony Collapse Disorder.

Overwhelmed by Oil and Toxic Pollutants: The Destruction of an Entire Coastline

"The sea that bares her bosom to the moon;
The winds that will be howling at all hours ...
For this, for everything, we are out of tune."

(William Wordsworth, 1770-1850.)
For the people of the Gulf and the region - watching some of the most toxic pollutants known to man, being sprayed to disperse one of the most toxic pollutants known to man, unleashed as a result of man's fallibility, in a near-global addiction to consumerism - it must be an environmental apocalypse now. One dispersant Corexit 9500, is four times as toxic as oil, and also disrupts the reproductive systems of organisms.

There is magic about those sun-sparkled coasts, translucent, shimmering, sapphire sea, later turning peach, apricot, deep blush, then seeming near blackberry as the sun falls and the dusk, then dark, takes over. Then the great pelicans sit sentry, on remains of old breakwaters, silhouetted against the moon's silvered light.

Australian CBS Report on BP Oil Spill (censored at BP's request)

The following mini-documentary was aired on Australian CBS' 60 Minutes June 13. The damning report includes an interview with Kindra Arnesen and eyewitness video footage of the Deepwater explosion. It also revealed that miles of BP's boom has broken free and washed inland along Louisiana's marshes. BP apparently went all out to demand the report be taken down from CBS's website.

Gulf Coast, Grab Your Gas Masks!

What can go wrong will go wrong. Such is the case for the Gulf Coast and the unending saga of the BP oil spill that's now in its eleventh week. What's wrong now is this: winds from Hurricane Alex are pushing tar balls as large as apples onto Gulf Coast beaches. This has stopped cleanup efforts momentarily and even undone some of the spill control. As one marine scientist put it: "We lost all the progress we made." But the winds picking up are a giant concern for something else.

America Can't Solve Crises Because It's a Company-Owned Town

The United States can no longer engage effectively in "nation-building" in the one place on Earth it has a right and duty to do so: at home. These are the lessons of the 2010 Gulf oil catastrophe, the 2008 financial meltdown and the 2005 Katrina horror - disasters that history will rightfully conflate as symptomatic of the fundamental crisis of the rule of Capital. The U.S. has become a company town of speculative and extraction enterprises whose social and physical geography the rulers relentlessly appropriate, monetize and despoil - all with obscene abandon.

At the core of the100 or so activists that gathered in New Orleans for an Emergency Summit to Stop the Gulf Oil Catastrophe, last weekend, were veterans of the ravages of Disaster Capitalism following Hurricane Katrina. They had seen up close how Capital and its servants at all levels of government organized themselves as a public-private mob to drive Black and poor people from the city. They were witnesses to the crafting of a corporate consensus that the exiled poor should have no rights that conflicted with the imperatives of Capital - no right to return, no right to reclaim their lives, no rights that cannot be superseded by the claims and ambitions of the oligarchs. They had watched as finance Capital's urban gentrification agenda was near-instantaneously put on fast-forward in New Orleans to ensure the permanent purging of the poor. A kind of perverse anthem seemed to rise from each corporate celebration of the city's imminent and profitable rebirth: "Free the land - of Black people!"

Propaganda Special (with commentary) Ocean Changes May Have Dire Impact on People

The first comprehensive synthesis on the effects of climate change on the world's oceans has found they are now changing at a rate not seen for several million years.

Scientists reveal the growing atmospheric concentrations of man-made greenhouse gases are driving irreversible and dramatic changes to the way the ocean functions, with potentially dire impacts for hundreds of millions of people across the planet.
In an article published June 18 in Science magazine, scientists reveal the growing atmospheric concentrations of man-made greenhouse gases are driving irreversible and dramatic changes to the way the ocean functions, with potentially dire impacts for hundreds of millions of people across the planet.

Comment: Oh, puhleeze! Until the psychopaths in power blew a hole in the Gulf of Mexico, what humans added to the climate change scenario was negligible. Now, of course, all bets are off. But definitely, "man-made greenhouse gases" are NOT the reason for Climate Change as SOTT has documented over and over again.

The findings of the report emerged from a synthesis of recent research on the world's oceans, carried out by two of the world's leading marine scientists, one from The University of Queensland in Australia, and one from The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, in the USA.

Comment: Like we are supposed to believe these academicians who owe their souls to politics?

Professor Ove Hoegh-Guldberg, lead author of the report and Director of The University of Queensland's Global Change Institute, says the findings have enormous implications for mankind, particularly if the trend continues.

Pathocrats Turning on Each Other: Partner in Damaged Oil Well Slams BP for "Reckless" Actions -- And Inaction

Hermit crabs struggle through patches of oil from the Gulf of Mexico spill on a barrier island off East Grand Terre Island, Louisiana, Sunday. The thickness of the crude oil afflicting some Louisiana beaches is apparently sufficient to stymie even much larger life-forms.
BP's three-front oil spill war -- on the seafloor, on the Gulf Coast and in Congress -- turned into a four-front battle Friday when its main partner in the damaged exploration well blamed the oil giant's "reckless decisions and actions" for causing a disaster that was "preventable."

It was the first time since the blowout in the Gulf of Mexico that Anadarko Petroleum had given its view of the accident, and its chief executive, Jim Hackett, did not mince words. In a statement, Hackett said he was "shocked" by information that has emerged from investigations of the accident. He said it "indicates BP operated unsafely and failed to monitor and react to several critical warning signs during the drilling of the Macondo well."

Anadarko's statement contrasted with the testimony of BP's chief executive, Tony Hayward, who told a congressional committee Thursday that it was too soon to reach conclusions about the disaster's causes.

Comment: It's all a game, folks, a farce, a distraction. They'll all dump on each other the way Scooter Libby took the rap to take the heat off Cheney in the Wilson Spy Case. Then, he got pardoned and is happily raking in dough.

The Gulf Of Mexico Oil Spill Is Making A Lot Of People Really Sick

© BP
The Gulf of Mexico oil spill is already the worst environmental disaster in U.S. history, but what most people don't know is that it is rapidly turning into a public health disaster of frightening proportions. Reports are scattered and mostly anecdotal at this point (as BP and the U.S. government try to keep a lid on information getting out), but it is becoming increasingly clear that the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico and/or the chemical dispersants being used are making a lot of people sick. So far most of the reports have been about breathing difficulties, vomiting and various flu-like symptoms. But it is the health effects that will take a long time to show up that are the most concerning. For example, this oil spill has released massive amounts of benzene into the Gulf. Benzene actually enters human cells and damages DNA material. In fact, the Department of Health and Human Services tells us that exposure to benzene has been proven to cause leukemia. So are we about to see a massive wave of cancer sweep the Gulf coast?

At this point nobody knows. What is becoming clear is that a whole lot of people are becoming ill.

Several days ago, the state of Louisiana announced that 71 cases of oil spill-related illnesses had been reported to the Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals up to that point. A significant number of those had not even been involved in any of the clean up efforts.
