Robert Hunziker writes at CounterPunch:

Fukushima will likely go down in history as the biggest cover-up of the 21st Century. Governments and corporations are not leveling with citizens about the risks and dangers; similarly, truth itself, as an ethical standard, is at risk of going to shambles as the glue that holds together the trust and belief in society’s institutions. Ultimately, this is an example of how societies fail.

Tens of thousands of Fukushima residents remain in temporary housing more than four years after the horrific disaster of March 2011. Some areas on the outskirts of Fukushima have officially reopened to former residents, but many of those former residents are reluctant to return home because of widespread distrust of government claims that it is okay and safe.

Part of this reluctance has to do with radiation’s symptoms. It is insidious because it cannot be detected by human senses.

British Historian Says Hitler Escaped Nazi Germany

Did Hitler die? Or did he escape? British historian, Gerrard Williams, maintains that there’s been a large cover-up and that Hitler actually escaped Germany.

PTI via First Post:

Gerrard Williams claims that official records confirming the deaths of Hitler and his wife Eva Braun are seriously flawed as the Russians’ failed to announce they had found the body of the infamous dictator.

“I believe that in April 1945 the real Hitler along with Eva Braun were spirited out of the bunker where they escaped. They did not die, we were lied to, we’re still being lied to,” said Williams, a journalist, author and historian.

“It is supported by eyewitnesses who actually never saw anybody get shot. They never see the Fuhrer and Eva go into his private quarters in the bunker. They see bodies coming out but nobody ever see Hitler and Eva dead,” Williams said.

Hidden History: An Exposé of Modern Crimes, Conspiracies, and Cover-Ups in American Politics

51wKfc0eJ6L[Excerpted from Donald Jeffries’ new book, Hidden History: An Exposé of Modern Crimes, Conspiracies, and Cover-Ups in American Politicspublished by Skyhorse Publishing.]

 

Secrecy is the beginning of tyranny.
– Robert A. Heinlein

I can remember when believing in conspiracies wasn’t cool. Now, in the second decade of the twenty first century, more people are starting to sense that things may not be as they appear to be. The truth in Lord Acton’s classic axiom that “Power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely” becomes more self-evident every day. Politicians from the only two parties we have to choose from break promises, are unresponsive to the will of the people, and opt for war, austerity measures and state control over and over again. Gary Allen, author of the book, None Dare Call It Conspiracy, defined things perfectly when he wrote, “It must be remembered that the first job of any conspiracy, whether it be in politics, crime or within a business office, is to convince everyone else that no conspiracy exists.”

I contend that none of this is accidental, that it is not the result of what John Kennedy Toole termed A Confederacy of Dunces.Read the rest

Emerging victim testimonies of child abuse by British MPs

There have been many allegations of child abuse made over the past couple of years against various members of parliament and prominent media figures in Britain. But the media coverage has been minimal. Perhaps their silence is due to big media and the government being potentially implicated in this long running cover up.

Since the iconic British celebrity Jimmy Savile was posthumously uncovered as being a serial pedophile, necrophile and procurer of children in 2013, there have been more and more victims coming out about abuse in the 70s and 80s by figures of power both in politics and the media in Britain. It’s likely that the victims hadn’t spoken up until recently because they were put under the impression that nobody would believe them — they also feared for their and their families’ safety.

From this video you can see that Jimmy’s sexual appetite was common knowledge to anybody in the know.Read the rest

Nothing to see here. Move along, move along.

Via Newser

The MI6 spy whose naked body was found inside a zipped, padlocked gym bag probably died … by accident, UK police have decided. The coroner said last year Gareth Williams was probably killed by someone else in a criminal act, but now the Metropolitan Police have completed an evidence review and say it’s “more probable” no one else was in his apartment when he died in his bathroom in 2010, the BBC reports. The deputy assistant commissioner said today it’s “theoretically possible” Williams locked himself into the bag.

Scientists Point to ‘Motivated Reasoning’ As Culprit Behind ‘Conspiracist Thinking’

Don’t worry: I’m sure they’ll have a pill to treat your “motivated reasoning” disorder soon.

Via Scientific American:

Like many in the USA, especially perhaps those of us not allowed to go to work right now or with reason to feel anxious about the future, I’m particularly pre-occupied by these issues at the moment, and the various impediments to clear, community-spirited thinking.

And then researchers serendipitously dropped another relevant study on cognitive bias into the literature. Lewandowsky, Gignac and Oberauer conducted a study of people in the USA. It’s here in PLOS One.

They discuss a way that science communication processes can sometimes backfire. When the views of people seen as experts converge on an issue, it has a strong influence on other people’s thinking. So generally, a strong scientific consensus can be convincing to many others, too. Climate science is an example where growing consensus among scientists reduced the influence of climate change denial.

U.S. Directs Agents to Cover Up Program Used to Investigate Americans

DEAFrom Reuters:

A secretive U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration unit is funneling information from intelligence intercepts, wiretaps, informants and a massive database of telephone records to authorities across the nation to help them launch criminal investigations of Americans.

Although these cases rarely involve national security issues, documents reviewed by Reuters show that law enforcement agents have been directed to conceal how such investigations truly begin – not only from defense lawyers but also sometimes from prosecutors and judges.

The undated documents show that federal agents are trained to “recreate” the investigative trail to effectively cover up where the information originated, a practice that some experts say violates a defendant’s Constitutional right to a fair trial. If defendants don’t know how an investigation began, they cannot know to ask to review potential sources of exculpatory evidence – information that could reveal entrapment, mistakes or biased witnesses.

“I have never heard of anything like this at all,” said Nancy Gertner, a Harvard Law School professor who served as a federal judge from 1994 to 2011.

The Young Turks has an interview with the sole witness to journalist Michael Hastings’ fatal car crash. Hastings had told associates that he was working on a huge story before he died and in a mass email said that the feds were questioning his friends.
