Global crash fears as German bank sinks (October 6)
http://www.observer.co.uk/economy/story/0,1598,805683,00.html
Stockbrokers around the world are braced for a potentially calamitous week as alarm mounts over a looming, Thirties-style global financial crisis. A leaked email about the credit-worthiness of Commerzbank, Germany's third largest bank, yesterday increased fears of the international stock market malaise exploding into a fully-fledged banking crisis. Commerzbank lost a quarter of its value last week, raising the spectre of Credit-anstalt, the Austrian bank that collapsed in 1931, sparking global depression. US stock markets have fallen for six consecutive weeks, to their lowest levels in five years. European markets have collapsed even further, wiping out nearly half of the value of European corpora tions in this year alone. Japan is struggling to put together a plan to save its banking system, riddled with bad debt after a decade of recession and falling prices. Now the German economy threatens to follow. 'There are strong parallels to the Thirties after an unsustainable "new era" boom,' says Avinash Persaud managing director for economics and research at State Street Bank. 'Then, the stock market decline was not just steep, it was long, taking three years to reach the bottom.' (...) Figures due to be published on Friday will show that a toll of stock market falls, rising joblessness and war fears is finally denting the spending habits of Americans. Economists fear that the result may be a 'double-dip' US recession, taking much of the world with it. CLIP

To Fill the Vacuum of a Fallen Press

A Report on the New York City Peace Rally NOT IN OUR NAME Sunday, Oct. 6, 2002 East Meadow, Central Park

by Jerry M. Landay Bristol, RI 10/9/02

The day was glorious and the turnout was glorious - somewhere between 30,000 and 50,000 people thronged the space - though you didn't read much about it. They were engaged in peaceful democratic assembly, and the police had nothing to do. The attendees were enthusiastic, attentive, and united. Journalism has failed us completely. Therefore, this report.

The throng was repeatedly asked to move left (the symbolism was not lost) so that people jammed together around the corner of 96th St. and Fifth Avenue (to the far right) could move into the park. Young and old, students and the retired, and everyone in between took part in a communion for reason.

The speaking list was brilliantly assembled. The President of the United States was there. I am speaking, of course, of Martin Sheen, who plays the President on the NBC-TV series West Wing (it takes guts for a TV star to do what he did, as those of you old enough to remember blacklists will recall). As for actual politicians, there was, sad to say, only one - a member of the New York state legislature. Several speakers had lost brothers, sisters and friends in the 9/11 tragedy, and were insightful enough to tell us that the Bush operation in Iraq has NOTHING to do with 9/11. There was a representative of the emergency medical teams who worked to save lives after the planes hit. Some high school students spoke to us, and they were wonderful. Tim Robbins, the writer and actor was there. What did they all have to tell us?

That Bush is planning a campaign of war and occupation as a permanent condition, without the slightest idea of how to pay for it.

That attack will never win us friends around the world, but sworn enemies. "I will never feel safe," said one speaker.

That Congressmen whom one delegation visited in Washington reported most of the phone calls to their office opposed war --- but they would vote for war anyway. The disconnect is profound, and chilling.

That all fundamentalisms are evil, and that includes America's major, indigenous expression of fundamentalism, corporate business, out to assure global profits at the cost of human lives.

That, like the immortal Mississippi activist Fanny Lou Hamer, "I am so tired of feeling so tired."

That the United States is not untouchable, as 9/11 proved, and attack never wins hearts or minds, as Vietnam proved.

That there are so many new young poets at work because someone needs to put meaning on all the new metaphors we showering upon us - more than we can keep track of.

That we must re-invent the nation's press. The next day, the New York Times buried its report of the rally on local section B-3. The item did not appear at all in the New England edition,

That, under Bush, the character of a great nation is being forcibly changed, against large segments of the popular will.

That we have a nation to reclaim.

The climax of the rally under a canopy of cool breeze, sunny skies, and great puffball clouds, was the reciting of a pledge to resist the condition of permanent war - with 50,000 voices raised in unison.

Subject: Twyman to Iraq, Important Development

From James Twyman

Beloved Friends,

As you already know, I will be arriving in Iraq on Friday, October 11 to focus a worldwide prayer vigil to promote a peaceful solution to the conflict with Iraq. The US government believes that there is only one way to establish peace and security in the world. Together we are called to recognize that there is a force more powerful than our military weapons. It is the force of prayer, and I believe that it is the most powerful force in the universe.

On Monday I returned to my hotel room in San Francisco and found a note that had been placed under the door. I will not go into the details of what was written, only that the four words warned me not to travel to Iraq. Though I don't know who delivered the note, the intent was clear. It reminds me of when I traveled to Baghdad in 1998 and the US State Department called my sponsor in London asking them to relay a message. They were asked to remind me that traveling to Iraq was illegal, and I would likely be arrested when I returned to the US. I was not arrested, and I will not be dissuaded by these new threats. There is simply too much at risk if we continue on this perilous path. I ask only that you keep me in your prayers and participate in this vigil.

I would also like to make it clear that I am not in favor of the continued rule of Saddam Hussein in Iraq. I agree that he is a murderous dictator whose main goal is to consolidate the power he stole from his own people. However, I also believe that the direction President Bush is leading us in is wrong and counterproductive. Violence will only lead to more violence, and that is why we are calling on millions around the world to claim the power of a focused, unified prayer vigil to shift the current tide. We have seen the results of this method many times before, and it is critically important that we build on our successes. Maybe then our leaders will realize that we stand at the cusp of a new world that operates under new laws. Those laws are compassion and love, and we affirm them NOW!

Please join us in this important effort. Pass this notice to as many people as you can so we will have the support of millions of people committed to peaceful action. Once again, the time to join in prayer is:

Saturday, October 12, 1 PM New York time.

And please join me live from Iraq via satellite phone by logging onto WorldPuja.org at the designated time.

Peace Prevails on Earth,

James Twyman

Jean:

While it is important to let people know the truth, it is equally as important - no, more important - that the Lightworkers stay grounded, centered and calm. Everything is in Divine Order. Even Bush is playing his role - acting as a catalyst for people to consider questions such as is a preemptive strike appropriate now or ever? Is an American life more valuable than an Iraqi life, such that a preemptive strike would be appropriate? How really can we achieve peace permanently? And what do I choose?

Do not buy into the negativity, the frenzy, the stridency of opposing war. Let the letters and calls to our leaders be courteous and carry the messagethat we choose peace now; that war begets only more war and violence, while peace begets peace. Stay focused on peace; be the peace you wish to see. Much is happening in the higher dimensions to support us now. The angelics and other beings of light can help us best if we stay out of fear and in peace.

Blessings to you.

Bonnie

Subject: Navy assault on whales could begin November 1

Dear NRDC BioGems Defender,

I am contacting you via email because NRDC is facing an imminent legal and financial deadline in a case of extraordinary importance. We need your immediate help.

Just days from now, NRDC attorneys will appear in U.S. Federal Court and seek to stop the U.S. Navy from operating a new and extremely dangerous sonar system that would blast hundreds of thousands of square miles of ocean habitat with noise so intense it can maim, deafen or even kill whales at close range.

NRDC is racing to court because the Bush administration has just given its approval for the Navy to begin deploying this Low Frequency Active (LFA) sonar system across 75 percent of the world's oceans. Even worse, the Navy intends to begin operations of this frightening new technology as early as November 1st!

We need your immediate help. Please go to https://www.nrdc.org/joinGive/join/lfa2.asp right now to make an online emergency contribution that will help us fight this critical legal battle.

Marine scientists are warning that this sonar system may threaten the very survival of entire populations of whales, some already teetering on the brink of extinction.

As opposed to traditional "passive" sonar, which locates submarines by listening for sound in the water, the new "active" sonar uses underwater loudspeakers to blast the ocean with an effective noise level of 235 decibels and then waits for a response. At close range, the shock waves are so intense they can destroy whales' eardrums, cause their lungs to hemorrhage, and even kill. Further from the source, LFA noise still can result in permanent hearing loss in marine mammals after a single transmission, and cause whales to swerve from their migration paths.

The dangers are hardly theoretical. Two years ago, the mere testing of high-intensity Navy sonar in mid-frequency range caused a mass stranding of whales in the Bahamas. Whales from at least three different species died, their inner ears bleeding from the explosive power of the sonar signal.

Does the Navy have the right to conduct a giant uncontrolled experiment on our oceans and every living creature in them?

The Bush administration seems to think so. It has issued a permit that exempts the Navy from having to obey the Marine Mammal Protection Act, in effect giving the military a blank check to harass and injure whales and dolphins at will.

We think that's unconscionable and illegal. But we must have your immediate help if we are to prevail in court. We urgently need to raise significant new funds in order to cover litigation expenses and stop the imminent deployment of deadly, noise-producing sonar.

Again, I urge you to help by going to https://www.nrdc.org/joinGive/join/lfa2.asp right now and making an online emergency contribution.

Please join us in stopping the U.S. Navy before it unleashes this technological menace on the world's oceans. With your help, we can make sure that no more whales have to suffer and die from high-power sonar. Thank you.

Sincerely,

John H. Adams
President Natural Resources Defense Council

The Spoils of War

By Helen Caldicott, October 6, 2002 (Editorial published in the Baltimore Sun)

NEW YORK -- As the Bush administration prepares to make war on the Iraqi people -- for it is the civilian population of that country and not Saddam Hussein who will bear the brunt of the hostilities -- it is important that we recall the medical consequences of the last Persian Gulf war. It was, in effect, a nuclear war.

By the end of that 1991 conflict, the United States left between 300 and 800 tons of depleted uranium 238 in anti-tank shells and other explosives on the battlefields of Iraq, Kuwait and Saudi Arabia.

The term "depleted" refers to the removal of the fissionable element uranium 235 through a process that ironically is called "enrichment." What remains, uranium 238, is 1.7 times more dense than lead. When incorporated into an anti-tank shell and fired, it achieves great momentum, cutting through tank armor like a hot knife through butter.

What other properties does uranium 238 possess?

First, it is pyrophoric. When it hits a tank at high speed, it bursts into flames, producing aerosolized particles less than 5 microns in diameter, making them easy to inhale into the terminal air passages of the lung.

Second, it is a potent radioactive carcinogen, emitting a relatively heavy alpha particle composed of two protons and two neutrons. Once inside the body -- either in the lung if it has been inhaled, in a wound if it penetrates flesh, or ingested since it concentrates in the food chain and contaminates water -- it can produce cancer in the lungs, bones, blood or kidneys.

Third, it has a half-life of 4.5 billion years, meaning the areas in which this ammunition was used in Iraq and Kuwait will remain effectively radioactive for the rest of time.

Children are 10 to 20 times more sensitive to the effects of radiation than adults. My fellow pediatricians in the Iraqi city of Basra, for example, report an increase of six to 12 times in the incidence of childhood leukemia and cancer. Yet because of the sanctions imposed on Iraq by the United States and the United Nations, they have no access to antibiotics, chemotherapeutic drugs or effective radiation machines to treat their patients.

The incidence of congenital malformations has doubled in the exposed populations in Iraq where these weapons were used. Among them are babies being born with only one eye and with an encephaly -- the absence of a brain.

However, the medical consequences of the use of uranium 238 almost certainly did not affect only Iraqis. Some American veterans exposed to it are reported, by at least one medical researcher, to be excreting uranium in their urine a decade later. Other reports indicate it is being excreted in their semen.

That nearly one-third of the American tanks used in Desert Storm were made of uranium 238 is another story, for their crews were exposed to whole body gamma radiation. What might be the long-term consequences of such exposure has not, apparently, been studied.

Would these effects have surprised U.S. authorities? No, for incredible as it may seem, the American military's own studies prior to Desert Storm warned that aerosol uranium exposure under battlefield conditions could lead to cancers of the lung and bone, kidney damage, non-malignant lung disease, neurocognitive disorders, chromosomal damage and birth defects.

Do President Bush, Vice President Dick Cheney, Deputy Defense Secretary Paul Wolfowitz, National Security Adviser Condoleezza Rice and Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld understand the medical consequences of the 1991 war and the likely health effects of the next one they are planning?

If they don't, their ignorance is breathtaking. Even more incredible, though, and much more likely, is that they do understand but don't care.

Helen Caldicott, founder and president of the Nuclear Policy Research Institute, has devoted 25 years to an international campaign to educate the public about the medical hazards of the nuclear age. Her most recent book is The New Nuclear Danger: George W. Bush's Military-Industrial Complex (The New Press, 2002).

1. OVERVIEW: Common Sense Uncommon on Vaccinations

by Christopher Rudy, Holistic Healer

I've had 3 holistic health centers over the last 25 years. Many of the health problems I dealt with go back to vaccinations as evident from electro-diagnostics and classic symptomology profiles. I have fought the good fight to shift the health care paradigm from "treating disease" to "building health". Here are some things I've learned about vaccines.

The politics and economics behind vaccines are far more complex than the science. Three out of the five largest and most profitable corporations in the world are drug companies. The book, DEATH BY INJECTION by the brilliant researcher, Eustice Mullins, goes into the profits-before-people mentality of this disease care industry (called "heath care") in great detail.

Consider that John D. Rockefeller, who began by hawking snake oil out of the back of wagons, went on to use his oil well profits to finance 1200 medical schools early in the century with pharmacology at the core of the curriculum (his new "ethical drugs" snake oil)... turning out "ethical" drug-pushers every since then... and financing legislation that led to a legal monopoly, with big government enforcement (FDA), that has persecuted and prosecuted natural healing modalities as the "risky alternative fringe" every since. Vaccines play a huge role in monopoly medicine that values control of the market (people) above health.

This last year I was Communications Director for Dr. Len Horowitz who has a Masters in Public Health from Harvard and is the leading health rights activist on the vaccines issue. He wrote the definitive expose' on the vaccine "plot out of hell" in his best-seller called AIDS, EBOLA and EMERGING VIRUSES. In this book he provides a well-documented paper trail on the big business collusion with government agencies behind the creation of the AIDS viruses in America's bio-warfare labs... and then the deployment through vaccines of those and other genetically engineered cancer retroviruses. Targeted mostly were homosexuals and blacks (Hepatitis B1 vaccines), but also elderly (flu shots) and children (polio shots).

The AIDS-caused genocide of millions of black Africans by inoculation of their populations with B1 vaccines via the U.N.'s World Health Organization is well known by people worldwide. What is less well known, but well documented, is that the original polio vaccines were seeded with cancer retroviruses that, like biological time-bombs, would go off when the immune system of the genotypes targeted was compromised or fell off at middle age. This is a leading cause behind one-out-of-two adults getting cancer and one-out-of-three dying from it. Cancer was relatively rare early in this century. Now it's a half-trillion dollar industry.

Of course this is all "unthinkable" and "unspeakable". It's like saying that Roosevelt had prior knowledge of Pearl Harbor and Bush had prior knowledge of 9/11 "to further their military-industrial war agenda". The parallel is pertinent. Government patriotism (God & Country) has become a "religion" as has modern medicine; people believe "religiously" in our government leaders as they do the high priests of medicine with their drug "sacraments". The average elderly American is a walking pharmacy with 6 prescriptions.

Vaccines are a core part of this "BS" (Belief System). From cradle to grave, American are inundated with official misinformation about the efficacy, harmlessness and value of vaccines. In reality, vaccines inject disease organisms into the body along with heavy metals and toxic genetic poisons that weaken the immune system so the disease organisms will "take hold". The idea is that the body's immune system will then recognize and resist those disease invaders.

Unfortunately, Americans hear just enough about the good effect of vaccines to immunize them against the truth of their greater harm. It's like chemotherapy where chemicals similar to mustard gas poisons used in World War I, are injected into a body with the idea that you've got an enemy within you and the poison is going to kill it hopefully before it kills you. The unfortunate "collateral damage" is that chemo wipes out the immune system, which you can't live without. Then people die of "other causes" than the cancer which the doctors say was "cured". Vaccines have much the same long-term effect on the immune system.

All studies show that you've got a better chance of living 5 years without chemo than if you take it. But you rarely here about THOSE studies because the mainstream media gets most of its money from (1), sponsors of highly processed, nutrition-stripped and chemical-laced "food", that makes you eventually sick, and (2), drugs for whatever ails you. Chemo is the primo drug "profit-center" that all other drug "side effects" lead to. Vaccines likewise "make a killing" for the big business/big government (Big Brother) collusion that monopolizes "health care".

With the baby-boom population bulge now hitting the wall of their mortality, the medical-industrial complex has become bigger than the military-industrial complex that Eisenhower warned us about. The most powerful special interests in the world have a vested interest in keeping common sense uncommon on this subject... for population control and profit.

The intent of the economic and political agenda for reducing population is well documented in the Rockefeller and Bush Family histories. The Internet is rife with that history these days. But population control is not just reducing population. It's also "numbing us down" physically and "dumbing us down" mentally.

Since the backwards "health care" system focuses on disease treatment rather than health building, most people have adapted to very low levels of physical and mental health but "think" they are "healthy" as long as they don't have a runny nose or feel pain. The consequence is that the masses are so sick and tired of being sick and tired that they are too sick and tired to realize-and-resist the "big lie" of a health care system that is 97.5% disease care"... and "making a killing" on the indirect cause of disease (foodless "food") and it's direct treatment (drugs-per-symptom).

Here is a good example where the big lie of Big Brother is so big and so bold and so often told that the "sheeple" believe it. The massive deception of this parasitic system eating like a cancer at the healthy fabric of America is protected and policed by the FDA where top officers come out of the food and drug companies they supposedly regulate. It's the old Machiavellian dialectic with wolves in sheep's clothing keeping the wool over our eyes while they feast on "lamb chops"... milking our "light" (consciousness), "life" (vitality), and the fruits of our sacred labor with many adults losing their life savings to care for disease their last years rather than enjoy health. This plot out of hell is just plain evil. I've lost many recovering clients to this sick system through the pressure of well meaning friends and relatives who want a "real doctor" to take over. Common sense is uncommon.

People take their health for granted until they lose it. And will then pay almost anything to get it back. Often it's too late. And the disease care industry, at it's politically correct core, cares more for your disease than for your health. It's corporate law that "shareholders come before the public when profits are at stake." -Red Lion Decision, Shareholders vs. Henry Ford.

Take the vaccine industry. It's well documented that the Bush Family was not only heavily involved with the oil industry in Kuwait, behind the 1st Gulf War, but also with the manufacturers who tested their vaccines on Governor Bush Jr.'s (Texas) prison inmates, a year before they were injected into Gulf War soldiers. They had prior knowledge of the effect of Gulf War Syndrome symptoms BEFORE they inoculated the troops. The result is hundreds of thousands of diseased vets and their contaminated loved ones.

The biggest fear of the vested minions of the military/medical-industrial complex is that people will wake up to the dangers of vaccines and inoculate themselves against this insanity, refusing this threat to our health and demanding change in the system. Government agencies are gearing up to inoculate EVERYONE with smallpox vaccines. Under new "anti-terrorism" laws they will actually make it a federal offense if you don't get your shot. That of course is under the new "Martial law" guidelines that could follow from a provocateur biowar attack by insiders in the U.S. government. As said in the New York Times Op Ed piece following: "If the New World Order agenda is not realized by the terrorist attacks on America and if American's don't agree to give up their weapons and relinquish their sovereignty to the New World Order, the next attack will be the use of chemical, biological and/or atomic warfare against the American people. The architects of the New World Order will not hesitate to use as a last resort an atomic or hydrogen bomb in a major American city." In short, a healthy skepticism of vaccines and Big Brother is warranted. They've had the technology the last three years to insert "the chip", an almost microscopic "microdot", through the needle used for a vaccination. Given a massive fear campaign with smallpox from whomever, who would question or resist?

Beware the "enemy within the gates".

Subject: Pledge for peace `Not in Our Name'
Date: Wed, 09 Oct 2002


Hello special brother in peace Jean

In the interests of sharing as much as we can about initiatives for peace, reclaiming our voice and our abilities to think for and speak for ourselves and to support each other as we each remember how to be brave enough to stand up in our light and truth - to know that we are not alone, I felt it right to send you this.

Jean you may have already heard about this Pledge that has been initiated by folk in the USA reclaiming their voice and their power by reminding government leaders that any calls to take military action etc are NOT being done in their names because they don't condone the fear tactics and bullying antics being promoted by the current incumbent and his government.

And thank you Jean for keepings us all informed about alternate ways of looking at and understanding the other agendas that are not always visible; that said, let us stay in love and peace and joy and not feed the fear that at times seems ready to engulf us. I choose peace and love and joy and beauty and reclaim my right to think for and speak for myself NOW - Thank you Jean for all that you are ;-)

Love, peace, joy and beauty to you and yours

Lynn

NOTE FROM JEAN: I've already networked this information when it first came out last June. Yet here is again a part of it which is always worth remembering... This pledge has now been signed by thousands of U.S. citizens, including many Hollywood celebrities.

The Pledge of Resistance

We believe that as people living in the United States it is our responsibility to resist the injustices done by our government, in our names

Not in our name will you wage endless war there can be no more deaths no more transfusions of blood for oil

Not in our name will you invade countries bomb civilians, kill more children letting history take its course over the graves of the nameless

Not in our name will you erode the very freedoms you have claimed to fight for

Not by our hands will we supply weapons and funding for the annihilation of families on foreign soil

Not by our mouths will we let fear silence us

Not by our hearts will we allow whole peoples or countries to be deemed evil

Not by our will and Not in our name

We pledge resistance

We pledge alliance with those who have come under attack for voicing opposition to the war or for their religion or ethnicity

We pledge to make common cause with the people of the world to bring about justice, freedom and peace

Another world is possible and we pledge to make it real.
