A Different View

December 22, 2011
by Elmer Chen

            When I attended classes at the Rhode Island School of Design in the 1980’s, I developed a great interest in German militaria through my friendship with a very knowledgeable Virginia businessman. He later told me of his close connections with the Central Intelligence Agency and that he was connected with the Southeast Asia office of that agency. We became good friends and when I returned to the PRC, we did keep in touch with each other. He visited me in Kowloon upon a number of occasions and we discussed the collecting world and often the political and intelligence fields.

            Last year, while visiting, he had a big copy of a special file his department was working with and we read it over and, since it did concern itself with the PRC, I found it more than interesting. This had very detailed information about how the American military intelligence agency DARPA had been working to infiltrate and build defenses against Chinese military computer systems.

This covered many technical pages but what I found to be most impressive was a lengthy report about a raging war between the American Army and the Central Intelligence Agency, centered in the Pakistan and Afghanistan areas. According to this, the American Army was very angry with the CIA for its drone bombing attacks on Pakistani targets. They were very upset because the CIA used Army bases to launch attacks against suspected Taliban targets, even if they were inside Pakistan and even if many civilians were killed in these attacks.

The reason for the Army’s anger was that the CIA personnel used Army bases to launch their drone attacks and even work US Army uniforms while doing this. The senior military commands were being blamed by the Pakistani government for the killing of civilians when in reality, they had nothing to do with it.

Several pages of copies of cables to Washington’s Pentagon showed me very sharply that the Army had protested even as high as the President himself about this and had been ordered by his office to let the CIA do as it pleased. This went very badly with the generals and that was when they began a clandestine war, not against Muslims but against their own CIA!
           

To do this, they used many tricks but the most interesting one was the use of the Wikileaks program. Mr. Julian Assanage, the head of this group, was Australian and considered to be a brilliant “hacker.” He had been arrested for getting into sensitive sites in Australia and sent to jail for a short time. Later, from 2002 to 2006, when Assange went to the University of Melbourne he had been recruited by the US Army DARPA program that was designed to hack into Chinese military computer sites.
           

They were very successful at this work and then, with DARPA assistance and support, Assange set up Wikileaks as a vehicle for launching counter attacks against chosen Army targets. .With him were other DARPA people like the dissidents Wan Dan, Wang Youcai, (the founder of the Chinese Democracy Party;) Xiao Qiang, who had become the director of the China Internet Project at the University of California at Berkeley, and Rashi Narngyal Khamsitsang, a leading Tibetan exile.
           

When the CIA blocked any attempt to move them out of American Army bases, the senior military people in the Pentagon opted to thoroughly discredit both the CIA and the Department of State whom they felt were also blocking them. To do this, they resorted to Assange and his Wikileaks and extracted, and sent to him many thousands of very sensitive secret cables. Then deals were made with major news media and we now all know that the release of these secret cables created the so-called Arab Spring with revolts breaking out in Arab countries throughout the Middle East.
           

This disruption of the Arab world was by no means accidental. In the first place, many of the dictators and their intelligence systems had the active support of the CIA and the Department of State and also the Army was increasingly out of sorts with the state of Israel who was trying to force the President into fighting a war with Iran, solely for the benefit of Israel.
           

The Army felt that its troops were “being systematically destroyed” by fighting useless politically motivated wars and that a war with Iran would finish their morale off for good. So it was very clear that disrupting Israel’s alliances in the Middle East was another specific goal.
           

They were very successful in this project. Now, many CIA assets are destroyed and Israel is in a very dangerous strategic situation thanks to the situations in both Egypt (which was a specific goal) and with Turkey (which was an unintended goal.) 
           

The reports made it very clear that his young Manning person was an innocent pawn in a larger game and could never have found or sent the tens of thousands of secret cables to anyone. Many of them never went through his intelligence station but because he was deemed as an “unstable and possibly suicidal” person by the Army, it was felt that by ruthlessly tormenting him, he would commit suicide and that he could posthumously be blamed for everything and Assange no longer accused for stealing the cables.
           

Assange is very clever and it is felt that if he is further harassed by the authorities, he might well confess his DARPA connections. The report said he was to be either placated or killed outright.
           

That the Chinese military is not, certainly, planning to attack the United States, or any other country for that matter, does not seem to bother the American authorities. Breaking into sensitive PRC systems and manipulating them is very close to an act of war and China cannot permit this to continue. Because the Americans are guilty of this, why naturally they blame the PRC for breaking into their systems in such a self-righteous way.
           

Instead of seeking peaceful avenues of mutual cooperation, certain elements of the American leadership look to damage, insult and provoke those whose only goals are the betterment of their people and to have peaceful and harmonious relations with their neighbors at all times.
            

Mr. Chen can be contacted at:chocolfi@netvigator.com, or elmerchen@lukhoitong.com and is most interested in hearing from concerned American friends!

Benjamin’s Response :

The Pentagon understands that the problem they are dealing with is ultimately the owners of the Federal Reserve Board and their efforts to save their own asses by starting World War 3. A lot of the people in the CIA are also fed up with the crazy stuff they have been ordered to do by their Fed (Council on Foreign Relations) bosses. There is going to be a coup d’etat against these people and the bribed and corrupt Washington political establishment.

Game Over: Tyranny Revealed

From Activist Post

Source

Nicholas West
Activist Post

It is so predictable that it has become a tropism.  The creeping, stealthy soft tyranny gets called out into the open, first by those dedicated to digging in the archives of history, then by the general public who awakens to their undeniable daily condition.  It is the life force tilting toward the sunshine.

We know that the world is run by an unworthy gang of misanthropic inbred elites and their lackey minions. And, yet, through their spoils (and the spoiled), they have amassed great treasure that has no real value.

Their moral compass is broken; their political capital is zero; their fiat currency is worthless; and their method of rule has become comical.  These thespian thieves have now been pushed toward the gates of the temple to be whipped into the desert of their own creation.  

The dogs of war are set to be loosed upon the throat of anyone who gives voice to peaceful opposition and creative resistance; for this is the Wolfsbane they have continuously stomped upon.  The assassinated messengers of peace comprise a long and distinguished list of familiar names, but is also a list filled with myriad third-world democratically-elected leaders who had the hubris to suggest that their nations and people should remain independent from fascist jackals with nothing more to offer than loaded words and loaded guns.

But those were the days of dark room diplomacy, where tyranny could operate under the cover of night, releasing zombies to do their bidding. 

Those were the days, because they are past.  These days, enough people know about government-designed patsies, economic hitmen, false flag terror, staged revolutions and the machinations funded by the black budget to which we donate our tax dollars. And the system has admitted its fear of the awakening masses.

So, we now look toward 2012 and beyond. The landscape of that future is land-mined with divination, proclamation, prognostication . . . and devastation.  We are told of dollar collapse, societal breakdown, food shortages, nuclear war, rapture, and hell of every stripe.  Based on current indicators — every circle of hell detailed certainly can be perfectly corroborated.

Yet, some suggest that such cataclysmic crises are ultimately good for the overwhelming majority of the tortured and oppressed.

Can this be just wishful thinking?  How can we rejoice amid such documented horror?

The reason to rejoice is that tyranny has finally reached the lowest depths attainable.  We live in a world where children can be raped in front of their parents just to gain (suspect) information from suspected terrorists.  The military itself has approved of bestiality in its barracks.  Torture is good.  Citizen spies are accepted, as are the databases through which reports are fed into the central mega-computer to be translated by the borg.  Our natural world has been poisoned into an unrecognizably unnatural state.

The positive outcome suggested is that the rubber band has been stretched to its final limit, and it can only go in one direction from this point — forward.

Time is accelerating, and so our awareness and lack of patience is accelerating.  Enough is enoughis the mantra of the true new age.

The tyranny is already beginning to tip under its own weight. And those of us who are awake are leaning forward with all our might for the final push.  Occupy Tyranny.

Are we prepared for peace?  Because it is coming.  Can we stick our collective heads above the bunker line instead of in the sand?  Can we see the endless horizon?

When the dust settles and the sky clears — perhaps a few or many years off — we might do well to remember our folly for ever having entered the bunker in the first place.  Because, while the bunker was constructed with our needs in mind; we entered of our own free will.  And only through our free will can we ever emerge to seek the sunlight again.

Stop Vote Fraud in 2012

From Squidoo

Watch the Vote 2012

This lens to encourage ALL eligible Americans to get out and vote. 2012 is going to be a very tough year. There is major division in the Republican ranks – Ron Paul on one side against all the others.

Vote fraud by the Republicans has been rampant in the elections for the last 20 or more years – possibly even as far back as Richard Nixon.

But this year the election is even more important than ever before – because if Ron Paul does not win the White House – then the economy, the country and indeed possibly even the entire world, may collapse into economic ruin.

Ron Paul is the only candidate who has a real plan to help the USA to recover its former glory and become the economic beacon it once was.

Why I want Ron Paul to succeed

Ron Paul - R3volution

Just so you know, for the record – I am not an American – not by any means. But I am politically savvy, knowledgeable and interested. I always have been. Even back in New Zealand (my birth country), I was a member of the New Zealand Green Party and I actively campaigned for the Green Party in the 1996 and 1999 elections after NZ changed to a proportional representation (MMP) system of government. The Greens have been in parliament ever since and have done well. I moved to Canada in the year 2000 and have not voted in any NZ election since.

Over the last 10 years and most especially in the last 5 years, the world economy has changed drastically. Prices are rising, wages are frozen and jobs are being lost. The reason for this change is directly due to the actions of the US Congress.

Back in 1999 the Glass Steagall act was repealed which meant that Wall street could now speculate and gamble on various financial deals. When these gambles failed, businesses and banks on Wall street were forced to pay out and thus they quickly became bankrupt. So they asked Congress for help. Congress bailed them out with huge amounts of money called TARP Bailouts. These Bailouts were paid for by the TAXPAYERS but without the taxpayers consent.

Every time another bailout is approved by Congress, that is more of your taxes going to prop up a Wall street business or bank that has gambled on some financial deal and lost.

Another law that Congress passed (under George W. Bush) was a law that gives tax breaks to American businesses if they offshored their businesses to foreign countries. They sent their factories to other countries where the labour costs are much lower than in the USA and thus the shareholders can make huge profits. Thats why all the manufacturing jobs have gone – it is cheaper (and more profitable) to have Mexicans, Chinese and Indians doing your job.

As of 2011. the real unemployment rate is over 20% – despite the Official rate staying around 8 or 9%. Every time a business closes down, more people beome unemployed. You would think that unemployment percentage rate would increase, right? But it does not. Why not? It only includes those are officially listed as unemployed and who are actively looking for a job,

There are millions of Americans who have given up looking for work – and are surviving on food stamps. They have been unable to pay on their bills and mortgages so they have lost their homes when the banks foreclosed on them. Many many families are now in hotels and shelters, in RVs and living with relatives because there are no jobs and there is no end in sight.

Only ONE man has a plan to end this state of affairs. And his name is Ron Paul.

Ron Paul has consistently followed the US Constitution for the last 30 years – certainly the last 23 years since he first ran for President in 1988. He wants a smaller government. WHY? Because the Constitution only gives the the Legislative Branch (Congress) 20 sanctioned powers, and the Judiciary (Supreme Court) only has 11. Every other power that is not enumerated in the Constitution is supposed to be reserved for the States.

This is why he wants to remove several departments – including the IRS, the Federal Reserve – and the 5 federal departments – Education, Energy, Commerce, Interior and Housing & Urban Development. Those 5 departments plus income tax can all be handled by the states. The Federal Reserve is a private bank with private shareholders and it is the private Federal Reserve that is the direct cause of the economic situation currently destroying this planet. .

STOP the VOTE FRAUD

Get out and Vote!!!

Get out and Vote

On January 3rd, 2012, Iowa will be the first state to vote for a republican nominee. There WILL BE VOTE FRAUD.

In fact the attempts to commit fraud for the Iowa caucus vote, has already started. Today as I write this – it is still 2011..

You the People, MUST STOP the VOTE FRAUD. This is my sole reason for creating this lens.

The New Hampshire Primary is on January 10th, 2012 and others will follow in reasonably quick succession.

The ONLY way to STOP the VOTE FRAUD is to have 2 Exit Polls. One at the booth where you state who you voted for – and another at the Watch the Vote 2012 website where you text or email who you voted for – especially if you voted for Ron Paul. This goes for ALL States – all primaries and all caucuses.

In order to PREVENT vote fraud from taking place in Iowa – all Ron Paul voters are asked to send a text or an email to Watch the Vote website to state their vote and they are asked to do this IN ADDITION to responding to the exit poll person they speak to when they leave the voting booth.

If the exit poll person is from the GOP, they can easily skew the numbers they get from the exit polls and claim that Ron Paul was doing badly. BUT if there is a second exit poll, which shows different numbers, then vote fraud can be proven and the count can either be overturned or the GOP can be taken to court.

This same procedure must happen in ALL States and every single person in the USA who intends to vote for Ron Paul are asked to get out and vote, no mattwer what the media says about Ron Paul. Even of the media says that Ron Paul is doing well and is front, you still must vote – because the media DO TELL LIES.

After you have voted (for Ron Paul hopefully) you are strongly encouraged to send a text or email to this website statign who you voted for, as a second exit poll in order to prevent Vote Fraud. This is the only way that You the People can get Ron Paul to be nominated as the Republican Candidate.

But this will ONLY work if EVERYONE gets out to vote. Those of you who do vote for Ron Paul, are strongly encouraged to email and text the Watch the Vote website with your vote. See the Watch the Vote below.

GOP moves Iowa Caucus vote count to undisclosed location

Watch the Vote 2012

The below Video is Mike Rivero from WRH, speaking on December 28th 2011, about the Vote Fraud being perpetrated in Iowa right now!!. I am writing this on December 30, 2011. You the People MUST STOP this from happening. (I cannot say We the People since I personally am not an American and cannot vote – but I do support Ron Paul).

With less than one week to go until the IOWA GOP caucus vote on January 3rd, 2012, it was announced by the Iowa GOP just after Xmas Day (2011) that they would not be counting the votes in a public place, in front of witnesses, as they are required to do.

Instead they are going to be counting the votes behind closed doors – because they claimed that there was a credible threat of the caucus voting procedures being “disrupted”

THAT IS A LIE!!!!

The GOP want to count the votes in secret so that they can subvert the vote count and committ vote fraud.

The republican fringe candidate Ron Paul is currently polling at or above 50% in Iowa ahead of ALL the other GOP candidates – and the GOP are desperate to kick him out of the race because he does not follow Republican party lines.

Ron Paul is standing on a conservative platform – he only does or votes for what the US Constitution says the government can do. He says he will stop all foreign aid to Israel as well as stop all foreign aid to all other countries. He will bring home all troops from abroad. He will end all the wars. He will end the fed – by which he means close down the federal reserve – and he will do all he can to get the USA back on a stable economic track again.

Ron Paul does not need to just win Iowa, he needs to win by a huge landslide in order to not have the vote subverted. Previous elections have recorded swings of as much as 13 to 15% (and possibly higher) in voting numbers in order to force a favourite candidate into second place.

NOW is the time to come to the aid of your country!!!!!

How to vote for Ron Paul in 2012

With all the smearing and media blackouts against Ron Paul. he needs all the help he can get. While I am not an American, I DO want to see Ron Paul succeed.

It is the grassroots movement and his supporters that have gotten him to where he is now. He would not have been on any of the debates if his supporters had stayed quiet. So I want to do my part to help Ron Paul be nominated the Republican candidate for the 2012 election.

This video will teach all of us about how the US election system works and explains what Americans must do to vote for Ron Paul.

Ron Paul: Codger, crank or more
Dated December 26, 2011

Ron Paul is only 76 years old. Ronald Reagan was 69 years old when he was inaugurated as president – and he was 77 when he stepped down after 2 terms as president. NOONE ever called Ronald Reagan an old codger or a crank. WHY? Because Reagan was a yes man just like every other President since Eisenhower in World War 2. And that includes Barack Obama.

I think CNN needs to be charged with Libel and Slander. They need to PROVE that Ron Paul is a codger and a crank.

The fact is that Ron Paul is the sanest man in congress today. The only reason why Ron Paul is being attacked so viciously by ALL the media is most likely due to his campaign promise to “End the Fed”.

The federal reserve was started in 1913 and has done nothing but print money, create debt, raise interest rates, cause inflation to rise, force wages and prices to be artificially high and cause this entire economic collapse in the first place at the expense of the general population. The board of directors and shareholders of the federal reserves have made MILLIONS of dollars in profits, and they do not want to lose that wealth.

The Federal Reserve is a private bank with private shareholders, and most of these shareholders are congressmen of the US government. The federal reserve has made them ridiculously wealthy and they also do NOT want to lose their cash cow.

For every dollar the federal reserve prints, debt is created. It does cost money to print money you know. And all this debt has to be repaid back to the federal reserve eventually. Right now the debt is in the trillions of dollars and the US government can no longer afford to repay it. Especially when Congress keeps paying out the war machine for illegal wars (wars that congress did not agree to start), and paying bribes to Israel under the disguise of “Financial Aid”.

Every time the federal reserve prints more money, it creates more debt and devalues the money that already exists. This causes inflation to rise and thus prices to rise and thats why the value of the US dollar is sinking fast.

Mud slinging NOT sticking to Ron Paul

Mud slinging NOT sticking to Ron Paul

In the last week of December 2011, the GOP were desperate to find some dirt on Ron Paul in order to smear his campaign. But all they could find was some old newsletter with an editorial that has some racist comments, This newsletter is dated 22 years ago (1988). The newsletter may have been going out under Ron Pauls name, but he certainly did not write that column and he did not write those racist statements.

In 1988 Ron Paul was making his first presidential campaign – as a Libertarian Party candidate. He was far too busy campaigning to have tine to stop and deal with newsletters that needed to be edited. Thats what he has a campaign staff for. It was their job to edit those newsletters. Clearly someone fell down on the job.

So in 2011, the GOP are desperate to find anything that can smear Ron PAul and this is ALL they can find? And when CNN question him about these newsletters, they claim he STORMED out of the interview? NOT TRUE. The video was even edited to support their statement.

The interviewer was harrassing him and repeating the same question over and over again. She had asked the same question 3 times. He had answered 3 times. He then refused to answer any more when she clearly was not listening. He politely unhooked his microphone and by his body language she knew and accepted that he was done with the interview.

They say that one sign of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting something different to happen. So by this definition, anyone who asks the same question repeatedly and who expects a different answer – is insane.

Golden Rule

Ron Paul often invokes the Golden Rule and I too am a huge believer in the Golden Rule. This rule applies to countries and to governments as well as to individual people. It really is this simple.

If the entire world – and most especially the US government – would learn to FOLLOW this rule – then the world would NOT be in the mess it is today.

Americans buy record numbers of guns for Christmas

From Refreshing News

Posted by pooja 

Americans bought record numbers of guns last month amid an apparent surge in popularity for weapons as Christmas presents.

According to the FBI, over 1.5 million background checks on customers were requested by gun dealers to the National Instant Criminal Background Check System in December. Nearly 500,000 of those were in the six days before Christmas.

It was the highest number ever in a single month, surpassing the previous record set in November.

On Dec 23 alone there were 102,222 background checks, making it the second busiest single day for buying guns in history.

The actual number of guns bought may have been even higher if individual customers took home more than one each.

Explanations for America’s surge in gun buying include that it is a response to the stalled economy with people fearing crime waves. Another theory is that buyers are rushing to gun shops because they believe tighter firearms laws will be introduced in the future.

The National Rifle Association said people were concerned about self defence because police officer numbers were declining.

A spokesman said: “I think there’s an increased realisation that when something bad occurs it’s going to be between them and the criminal.”

But anti-gun campaigners said those who already owned weapons were simply hoarding more of them due to “fear-mongering” by the NRA.

A spokeswoman for the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence said: “The research we’ve seen indicates fewer and fewer people are owning more and more guns.”

Dave LaRue, of Legendary Guns in Phoenix, Arizona, said Christmas sales were up 25 per cent on the previous year and ammunition sales were also “brisk”.

He said: “There are a lot of people concerned about pending gun legislation and the sense about the current administration. People think future availability will be limited and there’s a feeling of get it while you can.”

The record for gun sales in a single day was set in November, on the day after Thanksgiving, when 129,166 background searches were carried out on customers buying weapons.

Since the near-fatal shooting of congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords by a deranged gunman in Tucson, Arizona last January there have been increasing calls for tighter gun control. Miss Giffords survived being shot in the head with a semi-automatic handgun, and six other people were killed.

Arendt: Born in conflict, Israel will degenerate into Sparta, and American Jews will need to back away

From Mondoweiss
The War of Ideas in the Middle East

Hannah Arendt
                                                                   Hannah Arendt

For the new year, here are some prophetic excerpts from two essays of Hannah Arendt’s, collected in The Jewish Writings (2007). Please note her predictions of the Nakba, of unending conflict, of Zionist dependence on the American Jewish community, of ultimate conflict with that American Jewish community, and the contribution of political Zionism to world anti-semitism. Just what Howard Gutmansaid recently. For which he was denounced by– Zionists.

Zionism Reconsidered, 1944:

Nationalism is bad enough when it trusts in nothing but the rude force of the nation. A nationalism that necessarily and admittedly depends upon the force of a foreign nation is certainly worse. This is the threatened state of Jewish nationalism and of the proposed Jewish state, surrounded inevitably by Arab states and Arab people. Even a Jewish majority in Palestine–nay even a transfer of all Palestine’s Arabs, which is openly demanded by the revisionists–would not substantially change a situation in which Jews must either ask protection from an outside power against their neighbors or come to a working agreement with their neighbors…

[T]he Zionists, if they continue to ignore the Mediterranean people and watch out only for the big faraway powers, will appear only as their tools, the agents of foreign and hostile interests. Jews who know their own history should be aware that such a state of affairs will inevitably lead to a new wave of Jew-hatred; the antisemitism of tomorrow will assert that Jews not only profiteered from the presence of foreign big powers in that region but had actually plotted it and hence are guilty of the consequences…

[T]he sole new piece of historical philosophy which the Zionists contributed out of their own new experiences [was] “A nation is a group of people…  held together by a common enemy” (Herzl)–an absurd doctrine…

To such [political] independence, it was believed, the Jewish nation could arrive under the protecting wings of any great power strong enough to shelter its growth…. the Zionists ended by making the Jewish national emancipation entirely dependent upon the material intersts of another nation.

The actual result was a return of the new movement to the traditional methods of shtadlonus [court Jews], which the Zionists once had so bitterly despised and violently denounced. Now Zionists too knew no better place politically than the lobbies of the powerful, and no sounder basis for agreements than their good services as agents of foreign interests…

[O]nly folly could dictate a policy which trusts a distant imperial power for protection, while alienating the goodwill of neighbors. What then, one is prompted to ask, will be the future policy of Zionism with respect to big powers, and what program will Zionists have to offer for a solution of the Arab-Jewish conflict?…

If a Jewish commonwealth is obtained in the near future–with or without partition–it will be due to the political influence of American Jews…. But if the Jewish commonwealth is proclaimed against the will of the Arabs and without the support of the Mediterranean peoples, not only financial help but political support will be necessary for a long time to come. And that may turn out to be very troublesome indeed for Jews in this country [the U.S.], who after all have no power to direct the political destinies of the Near East. It may eventually be far more of a responsibility than today they imagine or tomorrow can make good.

To Save the Jewish Homeland, 1948 [on the occasion of war in Palestine]

And even if the Jews were to win the war, its end would find the unique possibilities and the unique achievements of Zionism in Palestine destroyed. The land that would come into being would be something quite other than the dream of world Jewry, Zionist and non-Zionist. The ‘victorious’ Jews would live surrounded by an entirely hostile Arab population, secluded into ever-threatened borders, absorbed with physical self-defense to a degree that would submerge all other interests and acitvities. The growth of a Jewish culture would cease to be the concern of the whole people; social experiments would have to be discarded as impractical luxuries; political thought would center around military strategy…. And all this would be the fate of a nation that — no matter how many immigrants it could still absorb and how far it extended its boundaries (the whole of Palestine and Transjordan is the insane Revisionist demand)–would still remain a very small people greatly outnumbered by hostile neighbors.

Under such circumstances… the Palestinian Jews would degenerate into one of those small warrior tribes about whose possibilities and importance history has amply informed us since the days of Sparta. Their relations with world Jewry would become problematical, since their defense interests might clash at any moment with those of other countries where large number of Jews lived. Palestine Jewry would eventually separate itself from the larger body of world Jewry and in its isolation develop into an entirely new people. Thus it becomes plain that at this moment and under present circumstances a Jewish state can only be erected at the price of the Jewish homeland…

One grim addendum. In the heyday of the special relationship between the US and Israel, American Jewry felt itself to be one with the Israeli people. We Are One! declared Melvin Urofsky’s book of 1978. That unity is today being dissolved. The haredi-secular conflict in Israel that is getting so much attention here is one means of that dissolution. And the aim, unconsciously, may be a desire by American Jews to distance themselves from Israeli Jews so that when the Arab Spring at last brings a democratic movement to Israel and Palestine, and bloody conflict ensues, and the Israeli gov’t is cast as the bad guys, American Jews are emotionally prepared to regard the bloodshed as inevitable and not their problem.

The History of MIT’s Blatant Suppression of Cold Fusion

Note: While I have not authored this article, it appears to me to be extremely important for readers of Veterans Today and to represent another effort by powerful institutions to deprive American citizens and the world’s population the benefits of a new form of free energy technology to keep gas and oil profits up. — Jim Fetzer

A stunning report written by the late Eugene Mallove details the efforts of professors, researchers, and even the former President of MIT to squash cold fusion at all costs. If you have any doubt that Pons and Fleischmann had enemies desperately trying to discredit them, this article will erase it! A funeral party or wake to mock cold fusion was held by biased hot fusion scientists at MIT before their experiment to replicate Pons and Fleischmann’s results was even complete!

The History of MIT’s Blatant Suppression of Cold Fusion

By Hank Mills with Sterling D. Allan
Pure Energy Systems News


Due to the fact that commercially-ready cold fusion technologies like Andrea Rossi’s E-Cat (Energy Catalyzer) exist and can produce kilowatts of power, I’m not too interested in previous systems from years ago that could only produce a couple watts of power (or less). However, I am very interested in the events that took place immediately after the birth of Cold Fusion in 1989, when Pons and Fleischmann announced the existence of their technology to the world. Although cold fusion systems at the time were not ready for the market place, they proved the effect was real — a fact the establishment could not allow the public to accept.

Immediately after the announcement was made, the “mainstream” scientific community went on the attack. The late Eugene Mallove was in the middle of it, being employed at MIT in the news office — before resigning in protest of the institution’s misconduct. In a featured article for Infinite Energy Magazine, Mallove detailed exactly what took place that led to his resignation, and the depth of hatred that many professors at MIT had for Pons and Fleischmann’s work.

The article titled, “MIT and Cold Fusion: A Special Report” also looks at how the replication performed by the institution’s Plasma Fusion Center actually did produce positive results, how data from the experiment was altered by unknown individuals at least twice, and how the hot fusion scientists in charge of such tests were far too biased to conduct proper research.


The article is the most detailed piece of documentation I have ever seen in regards to the early years of the war against cold fusion. If you think the suppression Pons and Fleischmann faced was bad, you don’t have a clue until you have read this article.

The Replication Attempt

To start with, those in charge of the replication attempt were members of the MIT Plasma Fusion Center. Their work with hot fusion Tokamak brought the university many millions of dollars in funding from the government, and maintained their job security. If cold fusion were to be accepted as a real phenomenon, it could have made hot fusion research appear to be near worthless.

The question in the minds of representatives in Washington, DC would have been, “Why should the taxpayers finance the construction of giant reactors to experiment with hot fusion reactions that produce nuclear waste and lethal amounts of radioactivity, when cold fusion research only requires a small fraction of the funding, while producing no waste and little radioactivity?”

In the minds of the MIT professors, such as MIT Plasma Fusion Center Director Ronald R. Parker, that question could never be allowed to cross the minds of those that paid for their employment. So in an effort to belittle cold fusion research so no one would take it serious, the members of his department (including some scientists from others) took every opportunity they could to attack Pons and Fleischmann. For example, consider how….

A funeral party or “Wake for Cold Fusion” was held by the Plasma Fusion Center, before their replication test of Pons and Fleischmann’s setup was even complete. They held another such party afterwards.

Mugs belittling cold fusion were given out by Ron Parker, the head of the MIT hot fusion research group, who was supposed to be doing serious research to determine if cold fusion was a reality or not. The mugs read, “The Utah University: Department of Fusion Confusion” and had mocking instructions for cold fusion on the back.

Ron Parker would use the test results to discredit cold fusion, while at a celebration of the death of cold fusion stated to Eugene Mallove (after being shown evidence in support for cold fusion) stated that the data from the MIT replication was “worthless.”
How examination of the data from MIT’s replication showed obvious evidence of tampering. In fact, the corrected data showed excess heat. Yet it was still used to discredit cold fusion research for many years.

How the former President of MIT, Charles Vest, refused to order an investigation into how the Plasma Fusion Center handled the replication, and their obviously unscientific behavior — such as partying for the death of something instead of doing unbiased research. Even worse, years later he signed onto a Department of Energy report stating that cold fusion did not deserve funding for research, yet hot fusion deserved millions of additional dollars and was a “bargain.”

Conflicts of Interest

Conflicts of interest were ignored from the very start. For example, those who had the strongest need for cold fusion to be proven not to work (hot fusion scientists), were tasked with the replication of the effect. It would be like giving a cigarette company the order to conduct a study on the reality of lung cancer, or the lumber industry the job of determining the usefulness of industrial hemp. What the hot fusion scientists were going to say was obvious!

How some scientists were so closed minded they stated that if cold fusion was real, Pons and Fleischmann should be dead from radiation poisoning. In addition, some scientists went so far as to personally attack them. In one case, a scientist stated that even if a thousand tests showed excess heat, that the results would not vindicate Pons and Fleischmann.

“Words to Eat”

MIT Professor Ronald George Ballinger may hold the all time record for making a foolish statement against cold fusion. He wrote in 1991: “It would not matter to me if a thousand other investigations were to subsequently perform experiments that see excess heat. These results may all be correct, but it would be an insult to these investigators to connect them with Pons and Fleischmann.”

Perhaps one of the most interesting aspects of the article is how Ronald R. Parker and Ronald G. Ballinger had a phone call with Nick Tate of the Boston Heraldin 1989. They were talking to him about a potential story about cold fusion, hoping that he would write a hit piece.

In their conversation, which is transcribed in the article, Parker uses the fraud word in his description of their work. He also talks about how he is setting up another “blast” against cold fusion with Bob Bazell, a reporter with NBC.When Tate reported in theBoston Herald on May 1 that the MIT scientists had called Pons and Fleishmann’s work a “possible fraud” and “scientific schlock”, Pons and Fleishmann were viciously attacked at the meeting of the American Physical Society.

In a retrospective piece written in 1991, Tate asserted that: “Some say those comments set the tone for the national criticism of the Utah work that followed.”

Meanwhile, when Tate’s article in the Boston Herald revealed that Parker had described Pons and Fleishmann’s work as being a “possible fraud” and “scientific schlock”, Parker rushed to deny he had made such statements. Probably, he realized that in his rush to discredit cold fusion he had crossed the line, and committed slander. In order to avoid possible legal repercussions, in a media advisory from the MIT News Office, Parker specifically denied making such assertions to Tate during their telephone conversation.

However, Tate had recorded the phone call, and therefore had rock solid evidence that Parker had made those statements. Years later, Tate allowed Eugene Mallove to listen to the recording, which revealed the truth about what was said. It was too late, the damage to cold fusion’s reputation was done.

Where things stand

In summary, Mallove’s article paints a damning picture of MIT scientists and professors hell-bent on discrediting cold fusion. Out of desperation to protect hot fusion research, they went so far as to tell blatant lies, alter data, hurl personal insults, conduct celebrations of the “death” of cold fusion, and organize journalists to write hit pieces to try and dismiss Pons and Fleischmann’s work in the public eye. Then the leadership of MIT turned away and ignored the misconduct and potentially criminal behavior, even when they were specifically alerted to it. Years later, these same individuals (working in other positions with the DOE and DOD) continued to promote the idea that cold fusion was “garbage.”

If you want to know the TRUTH about why it has taken twenty plus years for a commercial cold fusion technology to be developed, you should read this article. It is a tragedy beyond measure that an institution like MIT would allow such inappropriate behavior. Everyone involved has blood on their hands from all the people on this planet that have died due to the suppression of this technology. Literally, due to their suppression of cold fusion, children have needlessly starved, millions have suffered dehydration due to a lack of clean water, the environment has been trashed, and the global economy has been almost destroyed.

If the suppression of cold fusion by MIT had never happened, we might not even have an energy crisis today!

And this is but one of many such stories about the suppression saga from 1989.
The suppression from back then has had phenomenal staying power due to the brainwashing that pronounced “cold fusion” to be “junk science,” no matter what, despite thousands of replications worldwide, with several making significant gains toward marketplace viability, and the E-Cat actually reaching the marketplace on October 28 of this year with a 1 MW unit. So now, when people attack Andrea Rossi’s E-Cat, it’s hard to tell whether they are acting as a function of that brainwashing, or as a present-day disinformation agent, or if they have honest misgivings of a scientific basis.

Gratefully, Rossi keeps moving forward despite these negative statements.
A few individuals in the mainstream are coming around and waking up to the reality of cold fusion, like NASA’s Dennis Bushnell who claims cold fusion is the number one most promising alternative energy technology on the planet. However, to protect hot fusion research, protect the status quo, and to keep the public from realizing how the scientific community suppressed cold fusion, he calls the phenomena LENR (Low Energy Nuclear Reactions). In addition, he claims there is no fusion in cold fusion, in order to try and make the technology seem more mundane, and more acceptable.

There were enemies of mankind in 1989 that wanted to prevent the proliferation of cold fusion, and there are still such enemies today. Reading about how cold fusion research was attacked from the very start can help us prepare for attacks from these in the future.
We cannot let greedy, selfish, and power-hungry monsters and their countless minions suppress cold fusion for another twenty years or more. There are too many lives at risk. Simply put, the future of our civilization is at stake.
