AP Finds Drugs in Drinking Water
As in the environmental disaster of 9/11, no effort is being made to calculate the cumulative, much less the synergistic effects of these multiple drugs that have appeared in drinking water around the country. The EPA is quick and relieved to report that little is known about synergy. But studies at Mt. Sinai Hospital in New York City have shown that if you're both a smoker and an asbestos worker, for instance, the effect is not merely twice as bad as being one OR the other. It's 80 or 90 times as bad. Jenna Orkin

Disinfo Agents Get to Marion Cotillard
As soon as a person in the limelight gets wind of the truth, the disinfo agents swoop in to steer him or her towards lunacy. Towards that end, the idea of a falsified moon landing is a particularly apt decoy. J.O.

Speaking of the US and China, Japanese media report that the Chinese made a suggestion to the US for China to control the part of the Pacific west of Hawaii, and the US to control that part from Hawaii east. Reportedly the suggestion was (of course) dismissed by the US. What immediately came to mind is how hegemons throughout history have divided up the world.

Drugs in drinking water: Yea, drugs, and all kinds of other crap, which we've put there ourselves. We've also poisoned our own food supply. We don't have to wait for "terrorists" to do it. Which brings to mind the near-zero security for urban infrastructure in the US and other countries. So-called urban explorers note that vital infrastructure is accessible to anyone who can walk and perhaps do a little climbing. There is practically no security anywhere. And we know that despite all that talk about protecting ports, security is extremely lax. So my question is, where are the crippling attacks by "terrorists" who are out to hurt America? It doesn't make any sense to me that "terrorists" would go to all the trouble and expense to do 9/11 (which actually benefited American elites) when they could, with very little effort and expense, deliver a crippling blow to a major American city.

So it appears to me that in reality there is no "terrorist threat."

Marion Cotillard -- Of course, they will try to make her look like a nutcase. But what really disappointed me was that she unwisely started talking about the towers, which debunkers welcome. Again, the physical evidence argument gets us more ridicule than anything else.

I've often thought that if I were going to prosecute 9/11 in a court of law and were allowed to take only one volume of evidence into the courtroom, it would be Rubicon. It contains everything one needs to demolish the defense.

FTW Admin -

Would it be possible to get Mike's opinion on investing in coal at this time? We have been thinking what could do the same things that gold and oil have done recently for their investors and is still somewhat within reach for the average "american" working class.

Thanks, that's actually very close to what I have been hearing.

I have been asked if I could get a hold of Mike for a Canadian Radio Show, but obviously I didn't have the needed info, and therefore I am here asking any one of you for guiding lines.

You are welcome to mail me for more information at the following email address: trausti //at// hraunfjord dot org
