"Workers of the Future You Know What it is to Sing; Art, Empire, Industry!"

 
Art-Empire-Industry 


"Paintings are subversive
Freedom is machines
All print is propaganda
We know what it means to sing
Art, empire, industry
Art, empire, industry
Art, empire, industry

History is heresy
Ignorance is bliss
Workers of the future
You know what it is to sing
Art, empire, industry
Art, empire, industry
Art, empire, industry

Speed and machines are the art of our empire
The new laws of gravity must be obeyed
Our lives are a model of planned obsolescence
Our great engineers are the priests of the age

Colour is disruption
Uniforms are grey
Leaders of the new age
You know what it means to say
Art, empire, industry
Art, empire, industry
Art, empire, industry

Ecstasy is treachery
Passion is a crime
Mothers of tomorrow
You know what it is to cry
Art, empire, industry
Art, empire, industry
Art, empire, industry" Bill Nelson, Red Noise

Meridian Energy Assessment and Jin Shin Jyutsu #BioMagnetics #EnergyMedicine




Quote; "What is the Meridian Energy Analysis System?  

MEAS is a type of integrated diagnostic method.  It has been said that modern (“Western”) diagnostic methods such as blood tests, EKGs, x-rays, ultrasounds, Cat Scans, Magnetic Resonance Imaging, nuclear medicine scans, visualization with fiberoptic scopes, etc. reveal the basis of only about 40% of the average patient’s symptoms.  The other 60% is often left undefined.  The MEAS helps investigate the 60% of symptoms that are often missed using conventional diagnostic techniques.

According to the changes in electric resistance from the acupuncture points, the MEAS analyzes the energy flow through each of your 12 acupuncture meridians.  Twelve meridians translate into 12 paths, 12 branches, and 12 networks, which run through your body connecting your internal organs with your external body.  If a meridian is not in balance, the electric resistance changes in a corresponding acupuncture point.  For example, if your lung meridian is blocked (reduced flow of energy), the electric resistance in acupuncture point “Lung 4” is altered.  The change, whether it be due to excess resistance or insufficient resistance, is detected by the MEAS computer.  Thus the MEAS gives a rapid, reproducible assessment of each of your 12 major meridians, which in turn reflects the function of the organ (s) for which the meridian is named.  The theory of the 12 meridians links your body’s internal physiological function with a specific series of points near the surface of your body.

Where do you test the twelve meridians?  There are over 300 acupuncture points located on the 12 major meridians.  MEAS only assesses the most important 12 “primary acupuncture points” located near your hands/wrists and ankles/feet.

What is the relationship between my meridians and my nervous system?  According to TCM, your internal organs and your external body are connected by the meridians.  According to Western Medicine, your internal organs and your external bodies are connected by nerves.  Thus there are dual pathways (meridians and nerves) connecting the surface of your body to your internal organs.

When is the best time to take the Meridian Energy Analysis?  There appears to be a close relationship between the time of day and each meridian.  Because of this, it is more accurate to compare MEAS readings at a time of day similar to the previous readings.  For example, if your first consultation was at 2:00 p.m., it is best to be re-checked between 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.  Although we schedule follow-up consultation based on many factors, the MEAS can be repeated as soon as you notice a change from any therapy, supplements, etc.

It is best not to compare MEAS reports if you are sick, drank alcohol, coffee, tea, or had just exercised or eaten 30 minutes before the test.  While the information may be useful for that situation, it might be difficult to see a trend unless your MEAS is repeated under the same general conditions" Go to: http://www.drkaslow.com/html/meridian_energy_assessment_-mea-.html

Performed Through Total Health Nutrition Center

The MSA or Meridian Stress Assessment procedure is known by various other names, some of which include:
  1. Galvanic Skin Response
  2. Electro-Dermal Screening
  3. Electro-Acupuncture according to Voll
This valuable diagnostic tool was originally a device similar to a very simple ohmmeter, which measures electrical resistance. Today’s instruments are computerized and include thousands of digitized energetic signals with the storage capacity of over 50,000 therapeutic products from which it will select based on the information obtained. Sill the basic concept is the same: a circuit is established from the MSA machine, through the individual and back to the MSA machine. The resistance, measured at 58 accupoints on the fingers and toes, gives an indication of the health of the internal organs and systems. From this information, the computerized system can assist in detecting evidence of chronic infections, toxicity, allergies, and most importantly, recommend specific treatment options to address the problems identified."...

"Whereas the first machines could give indications of wellness in the various organs and systems, our current equipment also has information that can be used to:
  1. Test compatibility of various pharmaceuticals, supplements, and other remedies.
  2. Test to determine which of how many toxins, bacteria, viruses, or parasites may need to be address.
  3. Conduct sensitivity testing for foods, chemicals, and environmental toxins."...
"Meridian Stress Assessment: A Powerful Tool for Assessing Your Health,
Supplement Needs, and Therapeutic Options

What it is. Meridian Stress Assessment (MSA) by Biomeridian is essentially a computerized health analysis that takes a great deal of the guesswork out of your health care. This non-invasive computerized test uses bio-energetic principles to assess the overall health of organs and systems, as well as factors that may be adversely affecting your health or interfering with normal functioning. Also known as Electrodermal Screening or Biomeridian Testing, this sophisticated technology measures the energy of associated acupuncture meridians—energy that carries key information about the condition of your internal organs and systems. At this time, Biomeridian’s MSA is the only FDA-approved Class II system that uses electro-acupuncture technology to accurately assess meridian dysfunction."

Quote: "4. Discussion

In Table 1, we prove that the 15 minutes of PLB irradiation exhibits a reliable complementary effect on LCLMM, rehabilitating to or approaching the normal current level; a 15-minute PLB irradiation also tended to suppress the HCLMM.
In Table 2, we show that the specific meridian channel current is indirectly affected by another meridian channel which has been treated by the PLB irradiation. Because the meridian channels and their corresponding acupuncture points are located in distinct locations, typical light energy irradiation should not be able to affect the electrical resistance of the skin or other meridian channels if no interconnecting network exists. Our previous water-based experiment proved that PLB weakens the hydrogen bonds and modifies the characteristics of liquid water [13, 14]. In this study, we applied the PLB technique to the Ryodoraku meridian point irradiation, attempting to detect its effects on the meridian current flow by the possible alteration of liquid characteristics in the meridian channels. Table 1 (Figure 4 as one example) shows that PLB irradiation has complementary effects on the current flow of abnormal meridians returning to its normal current level. Table 2 (Figure 5 as one example) shows that there are evident interactions between the current flows of relative meridians. Based on results of the current study, we suggest that the meridian channels are interconnected and acupuncture point stimulation induces a systematic wave-induced flow as shown in Figure 6.
Figure 6
PLB irradiation of the specific meridian (acupuncture) points may induce a wave-induced flow in the meridians, by using the interconnection of various meridians.
To strengthen our hypothesis, we searched for support in the relevant literature. Although numerous studies of TCM are published each year, the results and corresponding discussions are typically TCM theories, which are rarely proven through scientific methods. In order to decrease the amount of bias and avoid referring to unproven TCM theories, our discussion is based exclusively on the results of evidence-based publications.
After reviewing recent studies of meridians, acupuncture, propagation, stimulation, current, water, fluid, anatomy, energy, transport, flow, and propagation (Table 3), we discuss the progression of scientific evidence regarding meridians and the possibility of wave-induced flows."

Quote; "JIN SHIN JYUTSU®

literally translated is:
JYUTSU - Art
SHIN - Creator
JIN - Man of Knowing and Compassion
(Art of the Creator through man of knowing and compassion)

JIN SHIN JYUTSU is the Art of releasing tensions which are the causes for various symptoms in the body. Our bodies contain several energy pathways that feed life into all of our cells. When one or more of these paths become blocked, this damming effect may lead to discomfort or even pain. This blockage or stagnation will not only disrupt the local area but will continue and eventually disharmonize the complete path or paths of the energy flow.
Through Jin Shin Jyutsu our awareness is awakened to the simple fact that we are endowed with the ability to harmonize and balance ourselves (in rhythm with the universe) physically, mentally and spiritually.
Jin Shin Jyutsu is an art as opposed to a technique because a technique is a mechanical application, whereas an art is a skillful creation. This beautiful, simple Art is our inheritance.
According to ancient written records, which remain in the Archives of the Imperial Palace in Japan, Jin Shin Jyutsu was widely known before the birth of Gautama (Buddha, India), before the birth of Moses (recorded in the Bible), and before the Kojiki (Record of Ancient Things - Japan, A.D. 712). Jin Shin Jyutsu is an innate part of man's wisdom - simplifying the complexities of existence - and is truly an Art of Living.
Jin Shin Jyutsu was rediscovered by Master Jiro Murai early in the 20th century. His student, Mary Burmeister, brought the Art from Japan to America in the 1950's."....

"The Artless Art of Getting to Know (Help) Myself"

The Main Central Vertical Flow is the source of our life energy. This pathway flows down the center of the front of the body and up the back of the body. Here is a Jin Shin Jyutsu® self-help process to harmonize this pathway.
Harmonizing the Main Central regularly helps you feel centered and ensures that you will have plenty of energy. Some people find it calming and use it to fall asleep, while others like to use it to clear away the cobwebs upon awakening. For optimum results, do this daily.
MAIN CENTRAL VERTICAL FLOW
Step 1: Place the fingers of the right hand on the top of the head (where they will remain until step 6). Place the fingers of the left hand on your forehead between your eyebrows. Hold for 2 to 5 minutes or until the pulses you feel at your fingertips synchronize with each other.
Step 2: Now move the left fingertips to the tip of the nose. Hold them there for 2 to 5 minutes, or until the pulses synchronize.
Step 3: Move the left fingertips to your sternum (center of your chest between your breasts). Stay there for 2 to 5 minutes or until the pulses synchronize.
Step 4: Move your fingers to the base of your sternum (center of where your ribs start, above the stomach). Hold them there for 2 to 5 minutes, or until the pulses synchronize.
Step 5: Move your fingers to the top of your pubic bone (above the genitals, center). Stay there for 2 to 5 minutes, or until the pulses synchronize.
Step 6: Keep your left fingertips in place and move your right fingertips to cover your coccyx (tailbone). Hold for 2 to 5 minutes or until the pulses you feel at your fingertips synchronize with each other.
Note: The right hand remains on the top of the head while the left hand moves down the body until the final step." Go to: https://www.jsjinc.net/pagedetails.php?id=maincentral-flow&ms=8 For full articles, practitioners and further reading etc.

"Jabberwocky" by Lewis Carroll



"’Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
      Did gyre and gimble in the wabe:
All mimsy were the borogoves,
      And the mome raths outgrabe.

“Beware the Jabberwock, my son!
      The jaws that bite, the claws that catch!
Beware the Jubjub bird, and shun
      The frumious Bandersnatch!”

He took his vorpal sword in hand;
      Long time the manxome foe he sought—
So rested he by the Tumtum tree
      And stood awhile in thought.

And, as in uffish thought he stood,
      The Jabberwock, with eyes of flame,
Came whiffling through the tulgey wood,
      And burbled as it came!

One, two! One, two! And through and through
      The vorpal blade went snicker-snack!
He left it dead, and with its head
      He went galumphing back.

“And hast thou slain the Jabberwock?
      Come to my arms, my beamish boy!
O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!”
      He chortled in his joy.

’Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
      Did gyre and gimble in the wabe:
All mimsy were the borogoves,
      And the mome raths outgrabe."

Another US/UK Equipped Saudi Airstrike Causes "Collateral Damage" to Medicins Sans Frontieres Hospital in #Yemen (statement)




Quote; "A hospital supported by the international medical humanitarian organization Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) in northwestern Yemen was hit by an airstrike today, killing at least 11 people and injuring at least 19.
The attack on Abs Hospital, in Yemen’s Hajjah governorate, occurred at 3:45 pm local time and immediately killed nine people, including an MSF staff member. Two more patients died while being transferred to Al Jamhouri hospital. Five patients remain hospitalized.
The hospital, supported by MSF since July 2015, was partially destroyed, and all the remaining patients and staff have been evacuated.
The GPS coordinates of the hospital were repeatedly shared with all parties to the conflict, including the Saudi-led coalition, and its location was well- known.
“This is the fourth attack against an MSF facility in less than 12 months,” said Teresa Sancristóval, MSF emergency program manager for Yemen. “Once again, today we witness the tragic consequences of the bombing of a hospital. Once again, a fully functional hospital full of patients and MSF national and international staff members was bombed in a war that has shown no respect for medical facilities or patients.”
“Even with a recent United Nations resolution calling for an end to attacks on medical facilities and with the high-level declarations of commitment to International Humanitarian Law, nothing seems to be done to make parties involved in the conflict in Yemen respect medical staff and patients,” Sancristóval continued. “Without action, these public gestures are meaningless for today’s victims. Either intentional or as a result of negligence, this is unacceptable.”
MSF calls on all parties, and particularly the Saudi-led coalition responsible for the attack, to guarantee that such attacks do not happen again.
Abs Hospital was the main medical facility functioning in the western part of Hajjah governorate. The facility has treated 4,611 patients since MSF began supporting the hospital in July 2015.
The hospital had a 14-bed emergency room, a maternity unit and a surgical unit. In the last weeks the hospital had seen an increase in wounded patients, mostly victims of recent clashes and the aerial campaign in the area.
At the time of the strike, there were 23 patients in the surgery ward, 25 in the maternity ward, 13 newborns and 12 patients in the pediatric ward. The hospital had admitted several war-wounded patients during the day. The number of patients in the emergency room is pending further clarification."

""Unofficial" Nuclear Proliferation: The Little Emperors, EU/NATO Collusion, Israel ibn Saud, Mini-nukes, Syria & The Yemen."




Quote; "A little more than 60 miles from Brussels Airport, Kleine Brogel Air Base stands as one of six overseas repositories in the world where the United States still stores nuclear weapons. The existence of the bombs is officially neither confirmed nor denied, but it has been well-known for decades.
Yet the presence of these weapons — an estimated 20 American B61 nuclear bombs to be carried and delivered by the Belgian Air Force's dwindling inventory of F-16 fighter jets — did not come up in the news coverage following the Islamic State (IS) bombings last week in Brussels, or in the run-up to President Barack Obama's fourth and last Nuclear Security Summit, being held this week.
Nor was Kleine Brogel mentioned in reports about the shooting death, days after the bombings, of a security guard who worked at a Belgian nuclear facility, or in stories about vulnerabilities at Belgiam's nuclear facilities and power plants. In a prominent editorial entitled "Keeping Nuclear Weapons From Terrorists," the New York Times didn't mention that US nuclear weapons are stored in Belgium while arguing that "even if the chances are small that terrorists will acquire a nuclear weapon," the potential consequences are so devastating, we should plug any "possible security gaps."
To ensure those gaps are plugged, hundreds of millions of dollars has been spent by the US on security in the two decades since the breakup of the Soviet Union. Belgium's bombs are stored inside specially constructed armored vaults underneath protective aircraft shelters that are inside a secured storage site exclusively used for nuclear weapons that is inside a military base.
According to Hans Kristensen, the director of the nuclear information project of the Federation of American Scientists, nuclear weapons have been in Belgium since November 1963, when they arrived under a Top Secret agreement codenamed Pine Cone that was never seen or approved by the Belgian Parliament. A special American unit, the 130-person strong 701st Munitions Support Squadron, the majority of whom are Air Force security police, maintains 11 vaults at Kleine Brogel, along with specialized assets, aircraft, and bombs valued at more than $6.6 billion dollars, according to the resume of one veteran of the base.

Conventional wisdom is that the nuclear weapons in Belgium, as well as the other four European countries — the Netherlands, Germany, Italy, and Turkey — where they are stored today (there are two storage sites in Italy) tie together the Atlantic alliance in unique ways. The nuclear weapons are the ultimate American guarantee to Europe, and they're also a kind of US-European bargain: Only the US president can approve their use, but the host nations have to approve the bombs leaving the country. Thus the weapons can serve as a deterrent while also being virtually unusable." Go to: https://news.vice.com/article/american-nuclear-weapons-in-belgium-kleine-brogel

Quote; "Amply documented, Belgium, the Netherlands, Germany, Italy and Turkey are in possession of nuclear weapons which are deployed under national command against Russia, Iran and the Middle.
In recent developments, following the failed July 2016 military coup, the media has reported on Turkey’s nuclear weapons stored and deployed at the Incirlik base

The US National Resources Defense Council in a February 2005 report confirmed Turkey’s deployment of 90 so-called tactical B61 nuclear weapons, some of which were subsequently decommissioned    
The stockpiling and deployment of tactical B61 in these five “non-nuclear states” are intended for targets in the Middle East. Moreover, in accordance with  “NATO strike plans”, these thermonuclear B61 bunker buster bombs (stockpiled by the “non-nuclear States”) could be launched  “against targets in Russia or countries in the Middle East such as Syria and Iran” ( quoted in National Resources Defense Council, Nuclear Weapons in Europe , February 2005, emphasis added) 
In recent developments, press reports including Deutsche Welle have confirmed the deployment of Turkey’s 50 B61 nuclear weapons out it Incirlik air force base.  But this has been known for years. It took the media ten years to acknowledge that Turkey (a non-nuclear State) possesses a sizeable nuclear arsenal. 
There is however some confusion in the media reports as to the nature of the nuclear bombs stored and deployed at Incirlik. They are B61 gravity bombs [of the bunker buster type] with nuclear warheads,  with an explosive capability up to 170 kilotons.
The accuracy of the numbers of bombs quoted in the media reports remains to be acertained. Some of the bombs were decommissioned. Some of them may have been replaced with a more recent version including the B61-11. 
It should be emphasized that in the last few years, the Pentagon has developed a more advanced version of the B61, namely the B61-12, which is slated to replace the older versions currently stored and deployed in Western Europe including Turkey. Moreover, a trillion dollar nuclear weapons is now being contemplated by the Pentagon. 
The notion of deterrence has been scrapped  These so-called mini-nukes are intended to be used. Under The Pentagon’s so-called Life Extension Program, the the B61 nuclear weapons are  intended to “remain operational until at least 2025.” 
Does this make Turkey an undeclared nuclear power?
The answer is Yes, but this also applies to four other countries, namely Belgium, The Netherlands, Germany and Italy which also possess B61 nuclear bombs, deployed under national command and targeted at Russia, Iran and the Middle East.


“Far from making Europe safer, and far from producing a less nuclear dependent Europe, [the policy] may well end up bringing more nuclear weapons into the European continent, and frustrating some of the attempts that are being made to get multilateral nuclear disarmament,” (Former NATO Secretary-General George Robertson quoted in Global Security, February 10, 2010)
“‘Is Italy capable of delivering a thermonuclear strike?… Could the Belgians and the Dutch drop hydrogen bombs on enemy targets?… Germany’s air force couldn’t possibly be training to deliver bombs 13 times more powerful than the one that destroyed Hiroshima, could it?… Nuclear bombs are stored on air-force bases in Italy, Belgium, Germany and the Netherlands — and planes from each of those countries are capable of delivering them.” (“What to Do About Europe’s Secret Nukes.”Time Magazine, December 2, 2009)

Quote; "A thermonuclear weapon weighing little more than 2,400 pounds (1,100 kg) can produce an explosive force comparable to the detonation of more than 1.2 million tons of TNT. A nuclear device no larger than traditional bombs can devastate an entire city by blast, fire, and radiation. Nuclear weapons are considered weapons of mass destruction, and their use and control has been a major focus of international relations policy since their debut.
The Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons, commonly known as the Non-Proliferation Treaty or NPT, is an international treaty whose objective is to prevent the spread of nuclear weapons and weapons technology, to promote cooperation in the peaceful uses of nuclear energy, and to further the goal of achieving nuclear disarmament and general and complete disarmament.
Five states have signed up to NPT, the US, UK, Russia, France and China. Between them they have declared 22,000 nuclear weapons in stock. These five Nuclear Weapons States (NWS) have made undertakings not to use their nuclear weapons against a non-NWS party except in response to a nuclear attack. India, Pakistan and N.Korea have also declared stocks of nuclear weapons. Israel is widely known to have nuclear weapons but does not declare it.

As of 2009, only the US is known to have provided nuclear weapons for sharing. Germany, Belgium, Netherlands, Italy and Turkeyare still hosting U.S. nuclear weapons as part of NATO’s nuclear sharing policy. Canada and Greece withdrew and no longer participate.
However, the USA sticks to the old policy that goes back to 1945 – to monopolise the right to use nuclear weapons by making their non-proliferation part of international law in combination with new restrictive measures against others.
In his book Towards a World War III Scenario: The Dangers of Nuclear War Michel Chossudovsky tells us about the interconnection between the Pentagon and US corporations. The book says the US Congress okay’d the use of tactical nuclear weapons in non-conventional wars in 2003. According to congressmen it was quite “safe for civilians”.
In intensive warfare conditions, up-to-date tactical nuclear weapons can create an illusion of their absence on the battlefield when used together with conventional weapons. For instance, according to Russian military experts nuclear munitions of a new generation were used in Lebanon in 2006 during the operation against the Hezbollah.  The soil samples taken from craters had traces of enriched uranium. At the same time there was no gamma radiation and isotope of cesium 137 resulting from radioactive decay. The radiation level was high inside the craters but went down approximately by half at the distance of just a few meters away.
According to U.S. military sources, the first detonation of a nuclear weapon against another country since 1945 took place approximately 11 miles east of Basra, Iraq sometime between February 2 and February 5, 1991.*
By then, Iraq’s former capitol had been declared a “free fire on zone” – open to carpet-bombing by high-flying formations of eight-engine B-52s. “Basra is a military town in the true sense,” military spokesman General Richard Neal told the press. “The infrastructure, military infrastructure, is closely interwoven within the city of Basra itself.” Go to: http://truepublica.org.uk/global/nuclear-war-didnt-know/

Quote; "The main actors in the Iran pre-emptive nuclear warfare

Thermo-nuclear weapons are deployed by the three "official" Nuclear Weapons States (NWS) of the Atlantic Alliance, namely the US, the UK and France. The official NWS status is established under the terms of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT).
Five other NATO member countries (categorized under the NPT as"non-nuclear states"), namely Belgium, Germany, the Netherlands, Italy and Turkey, possess an arsenal of B61 tactical nuclear warheads or "mini-nukes" (Made in America) which are deployed under national military command and are targeted at Iran. The B61 can be delivered by a variety of different aircraft.
Are these five countries in violation of the Nuclear Proliferation Treaty of which they are signatories?
In relation to ongoing war plans, the US-NATO-Israel military alliance includes a total of  nine countries which possess a nuclear weapons arsenal:
The three official NWS (US, UK, France) plus the five "Undeclared Nuclear States" (Belgium, Germany, Netherlands, Italy and Turkey) plus the State of Israel  (Undeclared Nuclear State). With the exception of Israel, these countries are signatories of the NPT.

 

Pre-emptive Nuclear Warfare

While reports tend to depict the tactical B61 bombs as a relic of the Cold war, the mini nukes are the preferred weapons system for pre-emptive nuclear war. Were an attack directed against Iran to be launched involving the deployment of B61 bunker buster nuclear bombs, these five countries, with Turkey and Italy in the forefront, would play a major strategic role. https://www.rt.com/op-edge/nuclear-war-iran-nato-629/

Quote; "News reports about the United States withdrawing its nuclear weapons from Turkey raise a number of questions. First of all, one has to admit that this is a very serious matter, if it is true, of course, as it changes the balance of forces not only in the region - the Middle East, the Black Sea, the Caucasus - but also in the region where these weapons will be relocated.

 

Nuclear migrants 

Let us assume that the Americans have indeed decided to redeploy nuclear weapons from Turkey. The first question is where to? It was reported that the recipient was Romania, but the authorities of the country refuted the information.
If not Romania, who is ready to accept US nuclear weapons both technically and politically?
In principle, any NATO country is. I do not think that there are considerable technical problems at this point. After all, it goes about tactical, rather than strategic weapons: aviation bombs, warheads for short-range missiles, artillery shells. Of course, all this requires special storage conditions, security and so on, but one does not have to build state-of-the-art constructions for the purpose. 
In general, US weapons may find themselves anywhere in Europe - from Portugal to Bulgaria, Poland and the Baltic states.

Another question is: who in Europe would agree to this? After all, the Europeans  understand that the deployment of such weapons in Europe, especially in the vicinity of Russian borders, will lead to a reciprocal reaction from Moscow. Most likely, Russia will put the above-mentioned weapons on the list of targets for Russian missiles.
Some European politicians, especially from Eastern Europe, follow the principle "the worse - the better," when it comes to their relations with Russia. Yet, even most reckless European officials would not like to make their countries become targets for Russian missiles." http://www.pravdareport.com/world/asia/turkey/19-08-2016/135385-usa_nuclear_weapons-0/















Arafel comment: Given the "gung-ho" attitude apparently demonstrated by the Saudis and the Israelis (at the very least, many of the images above are from Syria not the Yemen), I can believe that our little Emperors (despite their lack of fine apparel),  could be making the mistake of believing their own propaganda.

The #EMPBomb: ..and with special regard to questions of proliferation (also largely ignored at the moment even by the Anti-Nuclear campaigning organisations), the Electro-Magnetic Pulse Bomb is a "must have" for all modern militaries as it represents the only weapon available for the less technologically advanced nations and is of-course essential for the established powers as it is impossible to take anyone "seriously" these days if they don't have one.

"The Roll of the Dead: Deaths at the Hands of the British State" #Austerity #VoxPolitical #SamuelMiller

With considerable thanks to Sam Miller @Hephaestus7 
for doing this vital work (reproduced in full -and subject to update -unfortunately and to our great shame-), ...


Quote: "I am temporarily holding and updating Black Triangle’s list of people who have been affected by this governments policy of cuts and sanctions:
Please read more about their ethos here: http://blacktrianglecampaign.org/about/
14 Sep 2015 — The Department of Work and Pensions (DWP) published guidance to Jobcentre officials who decide whether claimants should have their payments stopped.
The guidance says: “It would be usual for a normal healthy adult to suffer some deterioration in their health if they were without:
1. essential items such as food, clothing, heating and accommodation, or
2. sufficient money to buy essential items for a period of two weeks.”
“The Decision Maker must decided if the health of the person with the medical condition would decline more than a normal healthy adult.”
I have compiled a list of the deceased and those who have been adversely affected using the information from these sites  http://twishort.com/0x9gc http://blacktrianglecampaign.org/…/uk-welfare-reform…/ https://welfaretales.wordpress.com/…/death-after-fit…/ https://welfaretales.wordpress.com/…/list-of-welfare…/.
I fully agree with the assertion of Welfare Tales that these are the deaths that we know of because a friend, relative or the coroner has commented.
Sadly to say there are probably many more and as more of these horrific cases come to light. They will never be forgotten, by their families, friends and those who they touched in their day to day lives.
If you are feeling suicidal, please speak to your doctor and / or someone close to you. Or please call The Samaritans on 08457 90 90 90.

The Peoples review of the WCA published this report. There is a long depressing list of other people whose health has deteriorated after being “found fit for work” http://www.centreforwelfarereform.org/library/type/pdfs/the-peoples-review-of-the-wca.html published 20th Dc 2014

Black Triangle.

Quote; "This group is established to galvanise opposition to the current vicious attack on the fundamental human rights of disabled people by Government using “Work Capability Assessments” to re-classify sick and disabled individuals as “fit for work”. This site is dedicated to the memory of Paul Reekie (Born January 23, 1962; Died June 2010) : Let Perpetual Light Shine Upon Him; May He Rest in Peace."....

..."The Nazis forced people with mental and other disabilities to wear black triangles in the extermination camps during the Holocaust. The generic classification they used was “Arbeitsscheu” – literally “Workshy”. This term is also the one most favoured in our right-wing tabloid press to described incapacity and disability benefit claimants today.
This group of people could also include the homeless, alcoholics, prostitutes, draft dodgers, pacifists and travellers (Roma).
It is salutary to use the black triangle as the symbol of the UK Disabled People’s Protest Movement because British society is at present seeing an increasing number of violent and deadly attacks on people of disability in the community, and the tormenting of disabled people leading to tragic suicides and an official policy on the part of the State to infer that disabled people are just “workshy” and must be reclassified as “fit for work.”
It has become socially acceptable to ridicule, demonise and denigrate the disabled, both in public and in the mass media." Go to: http://blacktrianglecampaign.org/about/

Arafel: Recently our friend Jose (Bitterne Triangle Southampton), was on the phone to one of us saying how he had been complaining to The Job Centre concerning the amount of stress that the "Job-Search" commitments (forced on him when he lost his Disability Living Allowance and failed in his application for so called "Personal Independence Payment"), were causing him (he had a heart condition), when he stopped abruptly mid-conversation, my other friend (who is clearly still in considerable shock), went to his house only to find him lying dead on the floor having suffered a fatal heart attack.
 Jose was a talented artist of the modernist school and a "known figure" around Portswood and Bitterne Southampton, where he had lived for years, walking his little dog (his only house companion), which has now lost its master ("fascisti "old comrade" fascisti!"), Rest in Peace my friend.
