TYPHOON ROKE TO HIT JAPAN TOMORROW

In eoc, EYE ON CITRUS, EYEONCITRUS.COM, TYPHOON ROKE TO HIT JAPAN TOMORROW, World News on kp20 at 301120

Tokyos_Yellow_Rain Follow up: If things in Japan weren’t bad enough, what with the weekly earthquakes, the tsunami that hit in March, the continued radiation leaks from the destroyed nuclear power plants, now, tomorrow, a deadly typhoon is scheduled to make landfall. Japan will be evacuating 1.2 million people with this oncoming threat, but the question remains, what ramifications will the typhoon have on the continuing dangerous levels of radiation that have never been stopped at the Fukushima Nuclear Plant. It is known that in April of this year, a month after the devastation that hit Japan, American cities in the following states had radiation rain fall! Massachusetts, California, Washington, Nevada, North Carolina, South Carolina and Florida all had radiation rainfall, with the primary concern being the safety of our drinking water. The poison rain comes on the wind currents and there is no way to predict where it will end up. The leaking Nuclear Plants needs to be capped (stopped) NOW!

JAPAN TYPHON2

JAPAN TYPHON

There is no technology to remove the cores from the stricken reactors, it will be ten years before they attempt to do so. Conditions at Nuclear facilities are much worst than originally thought. In Russia at the Chernobyl disaster, which is located in the Ukraine,The abandoned city of Pripyat with Chernobyl plant in the distance they entombed the core in concrete which required Herculean efforts by many who lost their lives in the process.  However,  Japan is taking a different route, they are building huge frames that will go over the buildings and these frames will be covered by tents, in the hope the tents will contain the radiation that is coming off as steam and then they will be able to turn it into water and as water, they will be able to contain the radiation. Unlike Russia, which actually, evacuated the entire city adjoining Chernobyl, an area to this day, that is off limits because it is unsafe, Japan has evacuated a much smaller area, with the hope that the larger evacuation would not be necessary, disregarding the long term health of millions of people, not only in their nation, but people around the globe.

Dear Editor,
 
The Chronicle on 8/22/11, stated that the Crystal River City Council
was going to have the "first reading" on 8/22/11 of an ordinance that the council voted
on at a previous meeting "to change flag displays to an unlimited number".
 
How can flying "an unlimited number"of U.S flags be changed to an "explicit" number on the ordinance by the Crystal River City Council the very next day in the Chronicle 8/23/11 to again another unpatriotic restriction of flying of U.S.Flags?!

The council really doesn’t seem to "Get It": that any restriction of flying of the U.S. Flag is unconstitutional – even the city attorney told them so! As a Candidate for Citrus County Commission,  I stand against any restriction whatsoever of flying of the U.S.Flag, except for public safety. Furthermore, unpatriotic flag restrictions are unheard of  (Fox except by the Crystal River Council of Crystal River: who all deserve to lose jobs if they restrict U.S Flags from flying High and proud as they would be breaking their Oaths of Office to Uphold,defend and Protect the U.S. Constitution: Not to oppose it!!!

LIBERTY IN PERIL

In Bill of Rights, Corporate States of America, Iraq lies, Liberty in Peril on kp02 at 311127

New_World_Order_by_A78When President Eisenhower gave his farewell address in 1960 he warned the citizenry and future Presidents about the military-industrial complex and their influence. This group has been controlling everything since the end of his term, he saw and knew what they did, and his warnings were not heeded by JFK, who they murdered, and the following Presidents gave them free reign. The military-industrial complex is the ultimate privatization of our government at it’s worst. It has led others to seek to privatize the rest of the government, there can be nothing less dangerous and foreboding to our way of life.What should have been making news here in Citrus County, as well as the Nation is only now occurring, ten years after the fact, and it’s only a secondary topic, because of one brave teacher in the Citrus County School system who actually knows what a Democracy is all about. And it’s not about spreading the propaganda line of the government, that’s what the national, corporate controlled, media, does every day, a government whose fourth branch, a non-elected, hidden, non-representative, branch of government which answers to no one, except it’s Corporate Wall Street bankers, the same bankers the people bailed out after they wheeled and deal with our lives and monies causing the depression that we are trying to survive.

There are countless professional groups, including association of Engineers, Airline Pilots, Architects, Senior Military people, Intelligence Officers, Law Enforcement, and Government Officials who question the 9/11 Commission Report, Respected Medical Professionals Launch New 9/11 Truth Group, just recently, and the list is nearly endless. Canadian television has shown documentaries that reveal the lies and deception, these programs have not been able to get licensing here in the states to air.

It is imperative that we push forward the Agenda of Accountability to the Obama Administration for the high treasonable crimes committed by the Bush Administration and all the traitors in Congress who went along for the ride. They left us a world that is filled with hatred toward the United States and its people, while corporate America raped and pillage our natural resources for the bottom line. Is Obama part of this cabal? The jury is still out on that, yet, by his adherence to many of the same doctrines of Bush’s Regime it’s not looking good.

If you call yourself an American, whatever your political leanings you would not hesitate to investigate for yourself the atrocities of these people. Their false flag operation of 911 and the aftermath has left us and the world far worse off than ever before, it is time to call for action, do not let Obama neglect his duty as the commander and chief of our Nation. He must direct, at once, Eric Holder, the Attorney General to reopen the investigation of 911 and all the misdeeds that led up to it.

The truth is unpleasant and not easy to accept, but it doesn’t change the fact of its veracity. Our sons and daughters should have never been sent to war for the benefit of the military-industrial complex and all the people who profit from such enterprises.

TO all the brave men and women who marched off to defend this country and the world from the Japanese aggression and Hitler’s Germany during the Second World War, I thank you, even though others now seem to lessen your sacrifices by abandoning the principles for which you fought, it is a disgrace to their memories that we allowed ourselves to be manipulated and overrun by the corporate monolith that is America today. This blatant disregard for life and focus on obtaining the wealth of the world for its own financial gain, letting nothing stand in its way, whether common sense or the truth. The structure that was created out of necessity to win the war, the military-industrial complex, turned its ugly head around and forgot why it was created in the first place, to preserve Democracy and our way of life in the United States.

To all the brave men and women today who serve, I thank you, and realize you are putting your lives and bodies on the line to preserve the idea that was America and the promise that it once held. It doesn’t make your scarifies any less than those who served before because your serving with the belief that you are still protecting the same United States of America, as your forebears did, it is not your fault that others have manipulated events for their own personal interests and have dramatically change the fabric of our Nation.

There are those in our government who believe that the sacrificing of lives, say 3000, or so, as in the World Trade Center, is for the greater good, or that’s at least, what they would tell you if they were ever to be held accountable. Of course, their greater good, doesn’t necessarily translate into yours and that has been the thinking of despots since the beginning. These people hold the belief that your faith in the government will always protect them from you learning the truth, that how could it possibly be that your government would harm its own people? Yet, the news is filled with family members killing family members, is the government immune to this type of behavior? After all, we blame the government for just about every other possible deficiency, why is it so hard to admit to its greatest betrayal of all?

There has been a desensitization of the population for decades through the mass media portrayals of war games, violent video games, and the lack of battlefront real news reporting. Today war is homogenized; the real effects are only dealt with in mundane, analytical statistics resulting in the human element being removed from the equation , when that happens it removes the need to avoid war at all costs. When there was still an iota of real news, as during the Viet Nam War, Americans got to see the body report every night, along with the body bags, and they understood, felt the effects of war, after all, over fifty thousand Americans died, and for what? The world did not come to an end when we pulled out of Viet Nam, in fact, you can go there now for vacation. And like France, which fought in Viet Nam, we had to pull out, it being the first war that the United States ever lost! But wait, war is not a game of winning or losing, although it may seem that way, it is about freedom! And did we lose any by escaping the torture of Viet Nam, of course not, the answer is NO; however, have we lost any freedom from the false flag operation of 911? The overwhelming answer is YES! But it’s not freedom lost by defeat on the battlefield, its freedom lost by those who manipulated the events. The Patriot Act effectively destroyed the Bill of Rights and their insistence on keeping it in effect is testimony to their fear that you might one day discover the truth. Thinking your free and being free are not the same thing and as long as you never cross paths with any governmental agency or law enforcement you may never come to realize that, but when, and if every, you do, rest assured, it will be too late.

Now we are off invading Libya, yes it is a no fly zone, remember Iraq and the no fly zone there? Does this make your spine tingle with excitement? Can you hardly wait until our forces go marching in, with their American flags sewn on their sleeves backward so that it looks like it’s blowing in the wind, how proud? Wake up, you’ve been conditioned, it’s called behavioral conditioning, it’s like Pavlov’s dog hearing the bell ring and salivating at the mouth. There are no invasion forces in the United States, how do you think we would respond to foreign invaders across the land? The military-industrial complex that Eisenhower warned everybody about is here, has been since the end of the second world war, it murdered a President, to go into Viet Nam and has been controlling things every since, it brought down the towers and going into Iraq was just an added benefit, the towers were destroyed to hid the fact that numerous investigations were coming to a conclusion regarding a slush fund containing hundreds of billions of dollars that was used for covert operations since the end of the second world war. The financial firms that were destroyed in the towers held the evidence, along with the super vault in the basement of one tower, which had to be completely obliterated. On Sept 10, 2001, Rumsfeld announced that the Pentagon could not account for 2.3 Trillion dollars, the next day the ACCOUNTING Dept is the only dept destroyed in the pentagon! Don’t think that this wasn’t planned a long time in advance; it was in the works for at least two to three years. This was and is privatization at its ugliest and what will result is the Corporate States of America. They have put their people into the Supreme Court and have ruled that Corporations have the same status as you and me. Now they are eliminating corporate taxes, Ric Scott here in Florida, doesn’t want Corporations to pay any taxes! Who do you think will be paying for everything, it’s a war on the Middle Class, that if it’s not stop, will destroy the Middle Class, it is nearly there, and if you don’t realize it, just let things keep going this way, and one day you’ll awaken and wonder what happened, remember you put the Fox in charge of the henhouse? Start connecting the dots and opening your eyes, it’s your money, but more importantly, it’s your sons and daughters lives and our freedom!

Death Of The Middle Class?

by Dave Gregory

Our rights are being taken away from us, our voices are being drowned out by propaganda and the march goes on in the war on the middle class. The millionaires and billionaires are never satisfied with all the wealth they have accumulated, it’s always more, more, and more. This is off the backs of the working, middle class Americans. All they have to do is to throw out words, like socialism, deficits and all the accomplishments that the working class has achieved over the last fifty years plus is buried in the rubble of the people’s lives. The people who can no longer afford the basics of existence without a struggle, the people who wonder how their children are going to be able to enjoy any type of life without the burden of so many untold sacrifices, where does it all end? It doesn’t, unless we stand together to stop it. People, it is time to stand together and understand what is taking place in this country. It is not time to be led easily astray by the propaganda of the rich, the rich who control the media. It is not the time, to easily fall into mindless arguments that distract from the big picture. It is not the time, to ignore the facts! It is the time, to unite, as one voice, a voice that is to be reckoned with. Even if you think it is difficult to sift through all the arguments that are laid out for you, you should be able to just look at your own history and how hard it has become for you to make ends meet! Bernie Sanders‘ speech before the Senate, gives you the details, he can’t do it alone, tell your Congressmen and Senators that we are not going to take it anymore!®

The Most Important Free Speech Issue of Our Time-Letter to the Editor

In AL FRANKEN, FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski, SAVE THE INTERNET on kp29 at 311020
Logo for NetNeutrality

Image via Wikipedia

This Tuesday is an important day in the fight to save the Internet.

As a source of innovation, an engine of our economy, and a forum for our political discourse, the Internet can only work if it’s a truly level playing field. Small businesses should have the same ability to reach customers as powerful corporations. A blogger should have the same ability to find an audience as a media conglomerate.

This principle is called “net neutrality” — and it’s under attack. Internet service giants like Comcast and Verizon want to offer premium and privileged access to the Internet for corporations who can afford to pay for it.

The good news is that the Federal Communications Commission has the power to issue regulations that protect net neutrality. The bad news is that draft regulations written by FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski don’t do that at all. They’re worse than nothing.

That’s why Tuesday is such an important day. The FCC will be meeting to discuss those regulations, and we must make sure that its members understand that allowing corporations to control the Internet is simply unacceptable.

Although Chairman Genachowski’s draft Order has not been made public, early reports make clear that it falls far short of protecting net neutrality.

For many Americans — particularly those who live in rural areas — the future of the Internet lies in mobile services. But the draft Order would effectively permit Internet providers to block lawful content, applications, and devices on mobile Internet connections.

Mobile networks like AT&T and Verizon Wireless would be able to shut off your access to content or applications for any reason. For instance, Verizon could prevent you from accessing Google Maps on your phone, forcing you to use their own mapping program, Verizon Navigator, even if it costs money to use and isn’t nearly as good. Or a mobile provider with a political agenda could prevent you from downloading an app that connects you with the Obama campaign (or, for that matter, a Tea Party group in your area).

It gets worse. The FCC has never before explicitly allowed discrimination on the Internet — but the draft Order takes a step backwards, merely stating that so-called “paid prioritization” (the creation of a “fast lane” for big corporations who can afford to pay for it) is cause for concern.

It sure is — but that’s exactly why the FCC should ban it. Instead, the draft Order would have the effect of actually relaxing restrictions on this kind of discrimination.

What’s more, even the protections that are established in the draft Order would be weak because it defines “broadband Internet access service” too narrowly, making it easy for powerful corporations to get around the rules.

Here’s what’s most troubling of all. Chairman Genachowski and President Obama — who nominated him — have argued convincingly that they support net neutrality.

But grassroots supporters of net neutrality are beginning to wonder if we’ve been had. Instead of proposing regulations that would truly protect net neutrality, reports indicate that Chairman Genachowski has been calling the CEOs of major Internet corporations seeking their public endorsement of this draft proposal, which would destroy it.

No chairman should be soliciting sign-off from the corporations that his agency is supposed to regulate — and no true advocate of a free and open Internet should be seeking the permission of large media conglomerates before issuing new rules.

After all, just look at Comcast — this Internet monolith has reportedly imposed a new, recurring fee on Level 3 Communications, the company slated to be the primary online delivery provider for Netflix. That’s the same Netflix that represents Comcast’s biggest competition in video services.

Imagine if Comcast customers couldn’t watch Netflix, but were limited only to Comcast’s Video On Demand service. Imagine if a cable news network could get its website to load faster on your computer than your favorite local political blog. Imagine if big corporations with their own agenda could decide who wins or loses online. The Internet as we know it would cease to exist.

That’s why net neutrality is the most important free speech issue of our time. And that’s why, this Tuesday, when the FCC meets to discuss this badly flawed proposal, I’ll be watching. If they approve it as is, I’ll be outraged. And you should be, too.

Viva WikiLeaks! SiCKO Was Not Banned in Cuba! LETTER TO EDITOR

In mainstream media and right-wing haters, Orwellian nature of bureaucrats, State Depart, Viva WikiLeaks! SiCKO Was Not Banned in Cuba on kp14 at 311018
Cover of "Sicko (Special Edition)"

Cover of Sicko (Special Edition)

It is a stunning look at the Orwellian nature of how bureaucrats for the State spin their lies and try to recreate reality (I assume to placate their bosses and tell them what they want to hear).

The date is January 31, 2008. It is just days after ‘Sicko’ has been nominated for an Oscar as Best Documentary. This must have sent someone reeling in Bush’s State Department (his Treasury Department had already notified me they were investigating what laws I might have broken in taking three 9/11 first responders to Cuba to get them the health care they had been denied in the United States).

Former health insurance executive Wendell Potter recently revealed that the insurance industry — which had decided to spend millions to go after me and, if necessary, “push Michael Moore off a cliff” — had begun working with anti-Castro Cubans in Miami in order to have them speak out and smear my film.

So, on January 31, 2008, a State Department official stationed in Havana took a made up story and sent it back to his HQ in Washington. Here’s what they came up with:

XXXXXXXXXXXX stated that Cuban authorities have banned Michael Moore’s documentary, “Sicko,” as being subversive. Although the film’s intent is to discredit the U.S. healthcare system by highlighting the excellence of the Cuban system, he said the regime knows the film is a myth and does not want to risk a popular backlash by showing to Cubans facilities that are clearly not available to the vast majority of them.

Sounds convincing, eh?! There’s only one problem — the entire nation of Cuba was shown the film on national television on April 25, 2008! The Cubans embraced the film so much so it became one of those rare American movies that received a theatrical distribution in Cuba. I personally ensured that a 35mm print got to the Film Institute in Havana. Screenings of ‘Sicko’ were set up in towns all across the country. In Havana, ‘Sicko’ screened at the famed Yara Theater.

But the secret cable said Cubans were banned from seeing my movie. Hmmm.

We also know from another secret U.S. document that “the disenchantment of the masses [in Cuba] has spread through all the provinces,” and that “all of Oriente Province is seething with hate” for the Castro regime. There’s a huge active underground rebellion, and “workers there readily give all the support they can,” with everyone involved in “subtle sabotage” against the government. Morale is terrible throughout all the branches of the armed forces, and in the event of war the army “will not fight.” Wow — this cable is hot!

Of course, this secret U.S. cable is from March 31, 1961, three weeks before Cuba kicked our asses at the Bay of Pigs.

The U.S. government has been passing around these “secret” documents to itself for the past fifty years, explaining in painstaking detail how horrible things are in Cuba and how Cubans are quietly aching for us to come back and take over. I don’t know why we write these cables, I guess it just makes us feel better about ourselves. (Anyone curious can find an entire museum of U.S. wish fulfillment cables on the website of the National Security Archive.)

So what do you do with about a false “secret” cable, especially one that involves you and your movie? Well, you wait for a responsible newspaper to investigate and shout what it discovers from the rooftops.

But yesterday WikiLeaks gave the ‘Sicko’ Cuba cable to the media — and what did they do with it? They ran it as if it were true! Here’s the headline in the Guardian:


WikiLeaks: Cuba banned Sicko for depicting ‘mythical’ healthcare system


Authorities feared footage of gleaming hospital in Michael Moore’s Oscar-nominated film would provoke a popular backlash

And not one scintilla of digging to see if Cuba had actually banned the movie! In fact, just the opposite. The right wing press started to have a field day reporting a lie (Andy Levy of Fox — twice — Reason Magazine and Hot Air, plus a slew of blogs). Sadly, even BoingBoing and my friends at the Nation wrote about it without skepticism. So here you have WikiLeaks, who have put themselves on the line to find and release these cables to the press — and traditional journalists are once again just too lazy to lift a finger, point and click their mouse to log into Nexis or search via Google, and look to see if Cuba really did “ban the film.” Had just ONE reporter done that, here’s they would have found:

June 16, 2007 Saturday 1:41 AM GMT [that’s 7 months before the false cable]

HEADLINE: Cuban health minister says Moore’s ‘Sicko’ shows ‘human values’ of communist system

BYLINE: By ANDREA RODRIGUEZ, Associated Press Writer

DATELINE: HAVANA

Cuba’s health minister Jose Ramon Balaguer said Friday that American filmmaker Michael Moore’s documentary ‘Sicko’ highlights the human values of the island’s communist-run government… “There can be no doubt this documentary by a personality like Mr. Michael Moore helps promote the profoundly human principles of Cuban society.”

Or, how ’bout this little April 25, 2008 notice from CubaSi.Cu (translation by Google):


Sicko premiere in Cuba 


25/04/2008 


The documentary Sicko, the U.S. filmmaker Michael Moore, which deals about the deplorable state of American health care system will be released today at 5:50 pm, for the space Cubavision Roundtable and the Education Channel.

Then there’s this from Juventudrebelde.cu (translation by Google). Or this Cuban editorial (translation by Google). There’s even a long clip of the Cuba section of ‘Sicko’ on the homepage of Media Roundtable on the CubaSi.cu website!

OK, so we know the media is lazy and sucks most of the time. But the bigger issue here is how our government seemed to be colluding with the health insurance industry to destroy a film that might have a hand in bringing about what the Cubans already have in their poverty-ridden third world country: free, universal health care. And because they have it and we don’t, Cuba has a better infant mortality rate than we do, their life expectancy is just 7 months shorter than ours, and, according to the WHO, they rank just two places behind the richest country on earth in terms of the quality of their health care.

That’s the story, mainstream media and right-wing haters.

Now that you’ve been presented with the facts, what are you going to do about it? Are you gonna attack me for having my movie played on Cuban state television? Or are you gonna attack me for not having my movie played on Cuban state television?

You have to choose one, it can’t be both.

And since the facts show that the movie played on state TV and in theaters, I think you’re better off attacking me for having my films played in Cuba.

¡Viva WikiLeaks!

WORLD TRADE CENTER BUILDING 7There are rumors around that some wealthy individuals, including, an NFL player, are planning on purchasing advertisement in major cities across the country, running productions concerning the truth about 911, with emphasis on building number 7. THESE ADS ARE TO RUN THIS WEEKEND, ACCORDING TO SOURCES (AUGUST 28 AND 29) There has been informed analysis by professionals from different fields of studies, including engineers, physicists, pilots, and others, who have raised legitimate questions about the events of that day. Questions, that Corporate controlled media outlets fail to address. EYEONCITRUS will keep you informed if this does happen because in all probability, this will not gain National coverage and most certainly not, local. An informed public becomes a knowledgeable citizenry and the cup of knowledge can never be filled. 

Lobbyists, the SCOURGE OF POLITICS

Bilderberg Group 2010
Corporate America controls our politics and it has been this way for decades. Yet, when election time rolls around, there is very little the average voter can do, except to vote for the candidate that Corporate America sets up, be it be on the right or the left, the choices are limited and the results are predictable. Who ever wins, you can be sure, their corporate backers interest come first and the people’s second. The two parties have basically morphed into one, with the Democrats lacking the backbone to forge ahead with the people’s agenda and the Republicans succumbing to the New World Order ideals of the Bilderberg group, which include the likes of, Rupert Murdoch, David Rockefeller, and the who’s who of the elite. Neither party has the true interest of Americans at heart, but the Republicans have let the extreme right take over their party and have become, either, the unwitting pawns of the Corporate Monoliths, or their paid mercenaries with the Corporate bottom line their cornerstone.
On the local level the die was cast, ousting incumbents being the primary concern, which initially, would seem to be justifiable in all regards, except one. Ron Schultz, had shown and still shows, that his interests are grounded in the welfare of the community and it’s future. By choosing not to follow the party dogma he showed strength of character and courage, admirable traits and alien to most politicians. This courage, unfortunately, lost him his seat, he didn’t adhere to the party hierarchy and was taught a lesson. The public needs to take a step back and realize that these are the characteristics that must be promoted and cherished by individuals, it’s the only way we have any hope of ever regaining representative government again. If you are truly concerned about Citrus and our Country the time for hopping on the bandwagon of mindless chatter and slogans is over. Evaluate the candidates on what they have done in order to see what they will do. The only thing protecting us from anarchy is government and the degree of government should be determined by the people and not big business. Don’t let money changers and manipulators deceive you into the wrong choice.

Ummm
You’re obviously not the brightest bulb on the Christmas tree are you?…You talk about removing the influence of Dixie Hollins and then you probably voted for Rebecca Bays who was handpicked by Dixie Hollins to run against Thrumston.

Ass-ump-tions
You assume incorrectly. I voted for Mr. Sterling in spite of the hatchet job the Chronicle was doing on him. I always look for the candidate who is not the the hands of special interests, that is why I did not vote for Bartell or Thrumston and will certainly not vote for Meek, Webb, and most of all Damato in future elections.Perhaps it is you who are intellectually spent thus resorting to juvenile insults and name calling.
