Japan Goes “All In” On Quantitative Easing … Even though the Inventors of QE All Say It Destroys the Economy In the Long-Run

from Washington’s Blog:

Has Japan Just Signed Its Own Death Warrant?

Japan just went all-in on quantitative easing.

Bloomberg reports:

The Bank of Japan’s expansion of record stimulus today may see it buy every new bond the government issues.

The BOJ said it plans to buy 8 trillion to 12 trillion yen ($108 billion) of Japanese government bonds per month under stepped-up stimulus it announced today.

Ebola: What You Need to do Today

lfb.org / BY CHRIS CAMPBELL / OCT 3, 2014

We’re under attack.

We are experiencing the worst Ebola outbreak in world history.

If we miss any breaking news in today’s episode, we apologize. This story is fast-moving and we’re taking it in as we go.

But one thing won’t change: We’ve provided a list of items for you to consider purchasing before a potential outbreak occurs in the United States.

If you wait until an outbreak happens, it could be too late.

More on that in a moment.

** According to one microbiologist from Springfield, Missouri, the CDC is lying about the dangers of the infection.

Dr. Gil Mobley wore a protective suit yesterday at Atlanta International to protest how the CDC is handling Ebola.

“With 10,000 people flying out of West Africa daily, it’s only a matter of time until all corners of the world are exposed,” he told reporters. “Once it devours third world countries, the U.S. will be importing these cases daily. Eventually, the clusters will overwhelm even the most advanced countries’ ability to isolate and quarantine all those exposed.”

“The CDC is asleep at the wheel,” Mobley said. “It’s going to be bad, and I want to make sure that this conversation is happening that this could get out of control in the United States.”

** Unlike Mobley, we don’t think you should freak out (yet)…

Instead you should get to know the dangers, cut through the clutter (and fearmongering), and make smart choices if you’re in an area where the infection may be spreading (listen up, Texas!).

TV: Huge increase in US Navy sailors suffering injury after Fukushima exposure — Gov’t reports show USS Reagan went directly into most intense area of plume just as radioactive releases hit peak — Over 20 trillion becquerels coming from plant every second — “We’re now beginning to see the real data” (VIDEO)

Interview with Charles Bonner, Esq., representing US Navy sailors exposed to Fukushima radioactive releases, Sept. 25, 2014: “These kinds of illnesses… are characteristic of people who’ve been exposed to radiation… We’ve seen them at Chernobyl, they are not difficult to prove… We know Tepco… misrepresented the levels of radiation these sailors were exposed to… The number is more than 110… we now have 225 injured sailors — 21, 22, 23, 25-year-olds. A population that you don’t usually find cancers such as leukemia, testicular cancers, uterine cancers, thyroid cancers. We also have cancers so rare only 0.001% of people have experienced it. Yet we know that radiation causes these kinds of cancers… Information that initially came out was totally incorrect… We’re now beginning to see the real data that’s revealing the exact kind of exposures — the kind of toxic soup — that these sailors were literally sailing through for days.”

The maps on the left indicate the location of the USS Ronald Reagan (‘R’) provided by the US Defense Threat Reduction Agency (pdf) for an 8-hour period on March 13, 2011. Images of the radioactive plume’s position were produced by the U.S. Navy Research Lab. The chart on the right is adapted from a report by the IRSN, France’s radiation safety agency (pdf), and “represents the release rate of iodine and caesium… for the three reactors.”

Fukushima fallout in California 1000x Greater than Expected: What You can Do

by Christina Sarich, Natural Society:

A government expert called the Fukushima fallout in California ‘a thousand times greater than we expected’ several days after the Fukushima explosion, but you are likely just now hearing about it.

The estimations of fission products (i.e. carcinogenic and radioactive particles) being leaked into the ocean and carried by currents to the Pacific Coast of the U.S. are staggering. From the start of this crisis, understandably, people have wanted to look the other way. It is a huge issue, and it seems there is little we can do about it, but this is not true.

Japan Declares Level 3 Emergency, At Least One Dead After Volcano Erupts In Central Japan

zerohedge.com / by Tyler Durden / 09/27/2014 10:29 -0400

When one thinks of Japan and natural disaster, the things that usually come to mind are earthquakes, tsunamis, radioactive lizards, the occasional massive nuclear power plant explosion. Not volcanoes – those are usually delegated to the sole country that dared to give bankers the middle finger, Iceland. And yet, overnight Japan declared a level 3 alert (on a scale of 1 to 5) when a volcano in central Japan erupted, sending ash clouds down the mountain’s slope for more than 3 kilometers. According to RT, at least one person has died and 70 were injured, while aircraft have been forced to divert to avoid the dangerous area. Medics confirmed the death of at least one person, while 70 more were reported to be injured, NHK reported. Thirty of the injured have been sent to hospital in critical condition, health officials added. One can only hope there were no nuclear power plants in the immediate vicinity of the volcano.

According to Japan’s NHK, the Ontake volcano on the border of Nagano and Gifu prefectures, 200 kilometers west of Tokyo, started erupting at about 11:53 local time (02:53 GMT). The Japanese TV outlet released the following video showing the volcano spewing thick, gray smoke into the air.

Report: Worry over nuclear fuel hitting aquifer under Fukushima plant after melting through concrete — TV: Raging meltdown going on even as we speak… they still don’t have control of 3 melted cores (VIDEO)

Nuclear Safety In The Age Of Chernobyl And Fukushima, website of Ulrich H. Kurzweg, Professor Emeritus in the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at the University of Florida, December 10, 2013 (emphasis added): The recent nuclear accident at Fukushima in Japan has focused the world’s attention on the safety of nuclear power… The worry at Fukushima at the moment is… some of the cores melting through their concrete supports to come in contact with the aquifer… The accidents at Chernobyl and Fukushima are indicating that we can expect such accidents to occur once every few decades or so and this will continue unless one comes up with safer reactor designs.

Professor Michio Kaku (Ph.D. in nuclear physics from UC Berkeley and protégé of Edward Teller the ‘father of the H-bomb’), Library of Congress Science Pavilion of the 2014 National Book Festival, CSPAN, August 30, 2014 (at 27:00 in): At Fukushima in Japan we have a raging nuclear meltdown, three of them — simultaneously — going on even as we speak. Even as we speak, they still have not yet gotten control of three melted cores.

Fukushima Evacuee: Skin turned black and hair around neck came off, then my dog died — Cancer Specialist: There are simply too many cases, I see a connection

Deutsche Welle (Germany’s international public broadcaster), Mar. 11, 2014: The residents of the evacuated Japanese town of Namie near the crippled nuclear plant in Fukushima were contaminated with radiation. […] When Minako Fujiwara tells the story of her dog which died last June, she still gets sad. “Hair around the dog’s neck came off and its skin turned black,” the 56-year-old told DW. Similar symptoms were also detected in animals in Chernobyl […] Shunji Sekine, a physician in Namie, believes the radiation will eventually have a negative impact on public health [and] has been examining the thyroid glands of Namie citizens […] High number of cancer cases […] the government of the Prefecture of Fukushima refuses to publish any relevant details about the prevalence of cancer. Information requests made by Sekine pertaining to previous cancer cases among children and the degree of contamination remain unanswered […] Two cases of thyroid cancer have been confirmed among the 3200 young residents of Namie. Shinji Tokonami, a radiation expert at Hirosaki University, was surprised by the findings. “That is more than expected”, he said, adding that the reason behind this might be the increased precision of the measuring instruments.

Shunji Sekine, physician specializing in thyroid and breast cancer, Mar. 11, 2014: “Although comprehensive studies are missing, I see a connection between nuclear accidents and the occurrence of cancer” […] there are simply too many cases.

What the Japanese Government Isn’t Saying About Fukushima
Fairewinds Energy Education’s Arnie Gundersen discusses sources of radiation the Japanese government is not taking into consideration when assessing the risk to it’s people and the rest of the world.

RT Big Picture Reports

Kevin Kamps, Beyond Nuclear, joins Thom Hartmann. U.S Navy sailors onboard the USS Ronald Reagan were some of the first Americans to respond to the tsunami and nuclear disaster in Fukushima, Japan in 2011. Now – they’re suing TEPCO – the company in charge of the stricken Fukushima Daichii nuclear power plant. At least 71 sailors on the USS Ronald Reagan have reported radiation sickness – and are suing TEPCO – alleging that the company knowingly downplayed the dangers of nuclear radiation at the Fukushima site. Of those 71 sailors – at least half have some form of cancer – according to the lawyer representing them. And other sailors are dealing with thyroid and reproductive health problems. So – did TEPCO knowingly mislead the world about the radioactive dangers at Fukushima immediately following the devestating tsunami – and could this lawsuit be the first of many to come?
