No Implants Needed: Movement-Generating Brain Waves Detected and Decoded Outside the Head

Scientific American

New research holds promise for a noninvasive brain-computer interface that allows mental control over computers and prosthetics

By Katie Moisse

Our bodies are wired to move, and damaged wiring is often impossible to repair. Strokes and spinal cord injuries can quickly disconnect parts of the brain that initiate movement with the nerves and muscles that execute it, and neurodegenerative disorders such as Parkinson's disease and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) draw the process out to the same effect. Scientists have been looking for a way to bypass damaged nerves by directly connecting the brain to an assistive device—like a robotic limb—through brain-computer interface (BCI) technology. Now, researchers have demonstrated the ability to nonintrusively record neural signals outside the skull and decode them into information that could be used to move a prosthetic.

Past efforts at a BCI to animate an artificial limb involved electrodes inserted directly into the brain. The surgery required to implant the probes and the possibility that implants might not stay in place made this approach risky.

The alternative—recording neural signals from outside the brain—has its own set of challenges. "It has been thought for quite some time that it wasn't possible to extract information about human movement using electroencephalography," or EEG, says neuroscientist and electrical engineer Jose Contreras-Vidal. In trying to record the brain's electrical activity off the scalp, he adds, "people assumed that the signal-to-noise ratio and the information content of these signals were limited."

Evidently, that is not the case. In the March issue of The Journal of Neuroscience, Contreras-Vidal and his team from the bioengineering and kinesiology departments at the University of Maryland, College Park, show that the noisy brain waves recorded using noninvasive EEG can be mathematically decoded into meaningful information about complex human movements. "This means we can use a noninvasive method to develop the next generation of brain–computer interface machines," Contreras-Vidal says. "It can expand considerably the range of clinical and rehabilitative applications."

Instead of undergoing brain surgery, users would wear an electrode-covered head cap that records the electric impulses from neurons—the only mess involved is the clear gel applied to the head to enhance conduction. Some patients have already used the caps to communicate via word processors. (The recognition of a letter flashing on a screen signals the word processor to choose that letter.) The next step is to put the decoded movement information to work. "We hope to show that a person with a stroke or an amputee would be able to control an assistive device," Contreras-Vidal says. He already has healthy volunteers testing two different setups: One has them moving a computer cursor on a screen; the other has them controlling an artificial hand.

Contreras-Vidal also hopes to integrate sensory feedback into the system to optimize the user's control over the device. "In all the studies so far people have used visual feedback to close the loop between the user and the machine," he says. "We think it's important to use other types of feedback, too, because vision is a slow signal" compared with the sensory signal a person would get from an intact limb.

Whether such a system would work for patients with longstanding nerve damage is unknown. Such patients haven't activated their movement-generating neurons or received the related sensory feedback for many years and could generate abnormal brain wave–based movement information. "We're starting to look at patient populations to answer that question," Contreras-Vidal says, naming stroke patients and below-elbow amputees as the first test subjects. "We know the brain is highly redundant, so we think that even if there's a deletion in the brain, we might be able to decode from another place. One advantage to using electroencephalography is access to the whole brain, not just a specific area."


3 February 2010

I have recently become aware that seeds called “The Clever Man” are becoming available and I wish to state that these are not “The Clever Man” and I have never given or sold seeds from this breed.
Anyone who is a medical grower and has been privileged to receive my seeds (free) would know that I only give away hybrid’s, which are NOT being used in my breeding programs.
While these will produce some very nice plants, they will be unstable and I must stress to people these are NOT “The Clever Man”, and its breeding is only known to me and to IP Australia where it is currently being registered and is nearly at completion.
So whoever is using this name should stop deceiving people, and make their own breeds if they know how, they will find it very hard to make a stable breed that is distinct and uniform.

Patents Cannabinoids Heal Scientificly Referenced

US Patent No.6630507 was issued on 7 October 2003. It has been kept hidden for five years, and it has only been the assiduous work of people trying to get marijuana legalised for medical use that has uncovered this. The application went in on 2 February 2001. Here is the abstract:
"Cannabinoids have been found to have antioxidant properties, unrelated to NMDA receptor antagonism. This new found property makes cannabinoids useful in the treatment and prophylaxis of a wide variety of oxidation associated diseases, such as ischemic, age-related, inflammatory and autoimmune diseases. The cannabinoids are found to have particular application as neuroprotectants, for example in limiting neurological damage following ischemic insults, such as stroke and trauma, or in the treatment of neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease and HIV dementia. Nonpsychoactive cannabinoids, such as cannabidoil, are particularly advantageous to use because they avoid toxicity that is encountered with psychoactive cannabinoids at high doses useful in the method of the present in vention. A particular disclosed class of cannabinoids useful as neuroprotective antioxidants is formula (I) wherein the R group is independently selected from the group consisting of H, CH3 and COCH3."
The inventors—and I dislike that word because it is like a version of plant-variety rights—are: Hampson, Aidan J.; Axelrod, Julius; and, Grimaldi, Maurizio. The assignee is the United States of America, as represented by the Department of Health and Human Services. So, the US government knows the medical value of this substance.

Fluoride: World-renowned Professor (Dr) A K Susheela presently visiting Australia.

Professor (Dr) A K Susheela is available for Interviews for Radio, News Paper and Television.

World-renowned Professor (Dr) A K Susheela presently visiting Australia Warns on Fluoride Link to

Miscarriages, Stillbirths and Retardation.


    Quote “Sadly, 1 in every 4 pregnancies ends in a loss from miscarriage and stillbirth”

According to the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare, there were more than 2,900 perinatal deaths in Australia. In addition, each year many more parents experience the loss of a baby early in the pregnancy. Sadly, one in every four pregnancies ends in a loss from miscarriage and stillbirth.

Professor (Dr) A.K. Susheela who is visiting Australia says long-term studies show fluoride is a serious threat to public health. It has not only has been linked to increased rates of stillbirth and miscarriages among Indian populations exposed to fluoride in water, but poses a serious risk of birth abnormalities including mental retardation.

Professor (Dr) A.K. Susheela of India, who has researched fluoride for more than 20 years, has listed a range of health issues linked to fluoride ingestion, she has more than 80 scientific publications in leading Western and Indian Journals.

Dr Susheela says the studies have shown fluoride destroys muscle structure and muscle function, depletes muscle energy; destroys the bone and teeth, red blood cells, blood vessels and the lining of the stomach and intestine.

“We now have ample scientific evidence to substantiate the fact that ingestion of fluoride prevents biosynthesis of hemoglobin leading to anemia in human beings. We have studied this problem in pregnant mothers. The danger of anemia in pregnancy is that it would lead to abnormalities in the development of the embryo/foetus,’’ says Dr Susheela.

“Studies also indicate it harms fetuses carried by pregnant women and may cause abortions and stillbirths.”

Dr Susheela says results of reducing fluoride in water include reduced abortions and stillbirths as fluoride is known to induce calcification of blood vessels of the fetus.

“It has been shown that when fluoride-contaminated water (>1.0 mg/L) and dental products are consumed or used by pregnant mothers, it destroys the thyroid gland of the embryo/foetus,’’ says Dr Susheela.

“When children with dental fluorosis were investigated, there were severe derangements in the thyroid hormone levels T3 (Triiodothyronine) and T4 (Tetraiodothyronine) along with Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH). Such children suffer from sub-clinical hypothyroidism, T3 toxicosis, low T3 syndrome, primary hypothyroidism and disturbed hormone conversion.

“Thyroid hormone defects results in mental retardation (low IQ) in children, deaf mutism, knock-knee, bow-leg and cretinism.”

Dr Susheela says the results of the studies on women ingesting fluoride were reported at the 27th Conference of the International Society for Fluoride Research, Beijing, China, Oct. 2007. The study is: Fluoride Ingestion and Health Hazards with Focus on Anaemia in Pregnancy and low birth weight babies: Guidelines for rectification: Susheela A.K, Mondal NK, Rashmi G, Ganesh Kamala, Bhasin Shammi, Gupta Gunjan.

“The evidences we have provided on the harmful effects of fluoride on human health, unequivocally prove the point that fluoride is disease-causing and not disease preventing. Our scientific publications would not only stand the test of time but also before any judiciary in any part of the world, as it is based on biomedical research of highest standards,’’ says Dr Susheela.

“With a high degree of scientific accuracy and certainty, I conclude that artificial fluoridation of drinking water is an ineffective means of improving dental health, and is in fact quite dangerous to those forced to consume it.”

In regard to claims by Australian health authorities that water fluoridation strengthens teeth surfaces and prevents dental caries (cavities), Dr Susheela’s research indicates the opposite.

“The findings emerging from the studies on both tooth and bone have made significant contributions to negate the belief that fluoride is good for teeth. Instead, fluoride does more damage to teeth than any good and prolonged use of fluoride leads to a decrease in the organic matrix of rabbit tooth but dermatan sulphate content is increased,” says Dr Susheela.

Dr Susheela says India launched a Technology Mission on “Safe Drinking Water” in 1986 (now re-designated after the late Prime Minister Sh. Rajiv Gandhi, as Rajiv Gandhi National Drinking Water Mission) in which every drinking water source in the rural sector is checked for water quality, especially for fluoride.

“People are keen to defluoridate the water due to gastrointestinal problems and are adopting indigenous technology for obtaining potable (defluoridated) water,’’ she said.

“Substantial scientific evidence has emerged in recent years from studies conducted on human subjects and hospital patients and those residing in areas/regions/villages where fluoride content ranges in drinking water from 0.5 ppm to 38.5 ppm,’’ said Dr Susheela.

She said the findings came after 20 years of follow-up studies that have now been concluded. The findings also included:

Gastro-intestinal complaints are the earliest manifestations of fluoride toxicity and fluorosis. The most common complaints include (1) headache; (2) nausea (loss of appetite); (3) pain in the stomach; (4) gas formation in the stomach (bloated feeling); (5) constipation; (6) intermittent fermentation diarrhea.

As a result of the above, gastro intestinal complaints in endemic areas are considered as early warning signs of the fluoride toxicity and are used as a diagnostic parameter under field based conditions. See report: Fluoride Ingestion and its Correlation with Gastrointestinal Discomfort.

Fluoride in circulation has an affinity to get deposited in tissues rich in calcium although some amount is excreted. In children, the fluoride ingested has adverse effects on kidney function. See Fluoride: Too Much Can Cripple You.

Significant findings emerged from studies on human patients with skeletal fluorosis. Degenerative changes were well defined at the ultrastructural level in the fluoresced muscle obtained from patients with skeletal fluorosis.

Fluoride inhibits antibody formation in rabbits and may occur in human subjects as well.

Fluoride inhibits protein and DNA synthesis in cultured lymphocytes.

“I am absolutely certain that large numbers of persons all around the world are suffering from fluoride toxicity, to one degree or other,’’ said Dr Susheela.

Dr Susheela is executive director, of the Fluorosis Research and Rural Development Foundation in India, Professor of Anatomy (Histocytochemistry) and Chief of the Fluoride and Fluorosis Research Laboratories, at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi.

Her post-doctoral training was under Lord Walton (Neurologist) of U.K. and Dr. Ade Milhorut of the Muscle Institute, New York, USA, (no longer exists).

Professor Susheela has written six doctorate papers in more than 20 years of scientific research in the field of fluoride toxicity and fluorosis.

The Green Agenda, Quotes: Explaining "Sustainability = Population Reduction = Eugenics"

We should all want to be wise and careful stewards of the beautiful planet we call home. But most of us realise that humans in general are not being good stewards. We are wasteful with our natural resources and have reduced biodiversity. Therefore, when we read about groups and organisations calling for a 'green revolution' and a new relationship between humanity and nature it is easy to agree with their ideas.

However, certain aspects of the modern green movement that is permeating every segment of our society are not about protecting the environment. You don’t have to dig very deep to discover the true beliefs of the influential leaders who are using genuine concerns about the environment to promote an agenda of fear and control. Please carefully consider the implications of the opinions that they so openly and freely express:

(references and sources for the quotes below can be found here)

"The common enemy of humanity is man.
In searching for a new enemy to unite us, we came up
with the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming,
water shortages, famine and the like would fit the bill. All these
dangers are caused by human intervention, and it is only through
changed attitudes and behavior that they can be overcome.
The real enemy then, is humanity itself
- Club of Rome,
premier environmental think-tank,
consultants to the United Nations


"We need to get some broad based support,
to capture the public's imagination...
So we have to offer up scary scenarios,
make simplified, dramatic statements
and make little mention of any doubts...
Each of us has to decide what the right balance
is between being effective and being honest.
- Prof. Stephen Schneider,
Stanford Professor of Climatology,
lead author of many IPCC reports


"We've got to ride this global warming issue.
Even if the theory of global warming is wrong,
we will be doing the right thing in terms of
economic and environmental policy.
- Timothy Wirth,
President of the UN Foundation


"No matter if the science of global warming is all phony...
climate change provides the greatest opportunity to
bring about justice and equality in the world
- Christine Stewart,
former Canadian Minister of the Environment


The data doesn't matter. We're not basing our recommendations
on the data. We're basing them on the climate models
- Prof. Chris Folland,
Hadley Centre for Climate Prediction and Research


The models are convenient fictions
that provide something very useful
- Dr David Frame,
climate modeler, Oxford University


"I believe it is appropriate to have an 'over-representation' of the facts
on how dangerous it is, as a predicate for opening up the audience
- Al Gore,
Climate Change activist


"It doesn't matter what is true,
it only matters what people believe is true
- Paul Watson,
co-founder of Greenpeace


"The only way to get our society to truly change is to
frighten people with the possibility of a catastrophe
- emeritus professor Daniel Botkin


"The climate crisis is not a political issue, it is a moral and
spiritual challenge to all of humanity. It is also our greatest
opportunity to lift Global Consciousness to a higher level

- Al Gore,
Nobel Peace Prize acceptance speech


"We are on the verge of a global transformation.
All we need is the right major crisis
- David Rockefeller,
Club of Rome executive member


"Humanity is sitting on a time bomb. If the vast majority of the
world's scientists are right, we have just ten years to avert a
major catastrophe that could send our entire planet's climate system
into a tail-spin of epic destruction involving extreme weather, floods,
droughts, epidemics and killer heat waves beyond anything we have
ever experienced - a catastrophe of our own making.
- Al Gore,
An Inconvenient Truth


We are getting close to catastrophic tipping points,
despite the fact that most people barely notice the warming yet
- Dr James Hansen,
NASA researcher


"By the end of this century climate change will reduce the human
population to a few breeding pairs surviving near the Arctic
- Sir James Lovelock,
Revenge of Gaia


"Climate Change will
result in a catastrophic global sea level
rise of seven meters. That's bye-bye most of Bangladesh,
Netherlands, Florida and would make London the new Atlantis
- Greenpeace International


"This planet is on course for a catastrophe.
The existence of Life itself is at stake
- Dr Tim Flannery,
Principal Research Scientist


"Coal makes us sick. Oil makes us sick. It's global warming.
It's ruining our country. It's ruining our world
- Harry Reid,
U.S. Senate majority leader


"Climate Change is the greatest threat that
human civilization has ever faced
- Angela Merkel,
German Chancellor


"Climate change is real. Not only is it real, it's here,
and its effects are giving rise to a frighteningly new
global phenomenon: the man-made natural disaster.
- Barack Obama,
US President


"We simply must do everything we can in our power to
slow down global warming before it is too late

"Climate change makes us all global citizens,
we are truly all in this together
- Gordon Brown,
British Prime Minister


"We have reached the critical moment of decision on climate change.
Failure to act to now would be deeply and unforgivably irresponsible.
We urgently require a global environmental revolution
- Tony Blair,
former British PM


"We are close to a time when all of humankind
will envision a global agenda that encompasses
a kind of Global Marshall Plan to address the
causes of poverty and suffering and
environmental destruction all over the earth.
- Al Gore,
Earth in the Balance


In Nature organic growth proceeds according
to a Master Plan, a Blueprint. Such a ‘master plan’ is
missing from the process of growth and development of
the world system. Now is the time to draw up a master plan for
sustainable growth and world development based on global
allocation of all resources and a new global economic system.
Ten or twenty years form today it will probably be too late."

- Club of Rome,
Mankind at the Turning Point


"We need a new paradigm of development in
which the environment will be a priority.
World civilization as we know it will soon end.
We have very little time and we must act.
If we can address the environmental problem,
it will have to be done within a new system, a
new paradigm. We have to change our mindset,
the way humankind views the world.
- Mikhail Gorbachev,
founder of Green Cross International


"The concept of national sovereignty has been immutable,
indeed a sacred principle of international relations.
It is a principle which will yield only slowly and reluctantly to
the new imperatives of global environmental cooperation.
- UN Commission on Global Governance report


"Democracy is not a panacea. It cannot organize everything and
it is unaware of its own limits. These facts must be faced squarely.
Sacrilegious though this may sound, democracy is no longer well
suited for the tasks ahead. The complexity and the technical nature
of many of today’s problems do not always allow elected
representatives to make competent decisions at the right time.
- Club of Rome,
The First Global Revolution


"The emerging 'environmentalization' of our civilization
and the need for vigorous action in the interest of the entire global
community will inevitably have multiple political consequences.
Perhaps the most important of them will be a gradual change
in the status of the United Nations. Inevitably, it must
assume some aspects of a world government.
- Mikhail Gorbachev,
State of the World Forum


"I envisage the prinicles of the Earth Charter to
be a new form of the ten commandments.
They lay the foundation for a sustainable
global earth community.
- Mikhail Gorbachev,
co-author of The Earth Charter


"In my view, after fifty years of service in the United Nations system,
I perceive the utmost urgency and absolute necessity for proper
Earth government. There is no shadow of a doubt that the present
political and economic systems are no longer appropriate
and will lead to the end of life evolution on this planet.
We must therefore absolutely and urgently look for new ways."

- Dr Robert Muller,
UN Assistant Secretary General,


"Nations are in effect ceding portions of their sovereignty
to the international community and beginning to create a
new system of international environmental governance
as a means of solving otherwise unmanageable crises
- Lester Brown,
WorldWatch Institute


"Regionalism must precede globalism.
We foresee a seamless system of governance from
local communities, individual states, regional unions
and up through to the United Nations itself
- UN Commission on Global Governance


"A keen and anxious awareness is evolving to suggest that
fundamental changes will have to take place in the world order
and its power structures, in the distribution of wealth and income.
Perhaps only a new and enlightened humanism
can permit mankind to negotiate this transition.
- Club of Rome,
Mankind at the Turning Point


"The alternative to the existing world order can only
emerge as a result of a new human dimension of progress.
We envision a revolution of the mind, a new way of thinking.
- Mikhail Gorbachev,
State of the World Forum


"We require a central organizing principle - one agreed to voluntarily.
Minor shifts in policy, moderate improvement in laws and regulations,
rhetoric offered in lieu of genuine change - these are all forms of
appeasement, designed to satisfy the public’s desire to believe that
sacrifice, struggle and a wrenching transformation
of society will not be necessary
- Al Gore,

"Adopting a central organizing principle...
means embarking on an all-out effort to use every
policy and program, every law and institution...

"Effective execution of Agenda 21 will require a profound
reorientation of all human society, unlike anything the world
has ever experienced a major shift in the priorities of both
governments and individuals and an unprecedented
redeployment of human and financial resources. This shift
will demand that a concern for the environmental consequences
of every human action be integrated into individual and
collective decision-making at every level.
- UN Agenda 21


"The current course of development is thus clearly unsustainable.
Current problems cannot be solved by piecemeal measures.
More of the same is not enough. Radical change from the
current trajectory is not an option, but an absolute necessity.
Fundamental economic, social and cultural changes that
address the root causes of poverty and environmental
degradation are required and they are required now.

U.S. Army Trains to Take On Tea Party

Kurt Nimmo
April 29, 2010

On April 17, the Courier-Journal in Louisville, Kentucky, reported on a military exercise dubbed “Mangudai,” named after the special forces of Genghis Khan’s Mongol army who could fight for days without food or sleep. The Kentucky newspaper portrayed the exercise as an effort to train soldiers to battle the Taliban in Afghanistan.

“Designed to test the limits of officers’ physical, mental and emotional endurance, the emerging Army exercise offered a revealing window onto modern combat training in the era of Iraq and Afghanistan,” Chris Kenning wrote for the newspaper. “Over three days last week, participants had to crawl on their bellies under real machine-gun fire, shimmy commando-style over a single rope high in the air and march for more than 22 miles through forests.”

But according to information received by The Patriot Post blog, there is another aspect to the military exercises not reported by local media.

“This week, I was contacted by a number of military personnel, enlisted and officer ranks, who expressed concern about a military exercise underway at Ft. Knox, the U.S. Bullion Depository. As with most such exercises, the Ft. Knox alert occurred in stages, as if real time intelligence was being provided at various intervals,” writes Mark Alexander.

Alexander cites an intel advisory issued on Friday, April 23, 2010, that identifies terrorist threat adversaries as “Local Militia Groups / Anti-Government Protesters / TEA Party” (see image below).

In short, the military was training in Kentucky to take on mythical militias — no word if they were of the FBI-created variety — and remarkably the non-violent Tea Party movement.

“Anti-Government – Health Care Protesters have stated that they would join the TEA Party as a sign of solidarity” during a protest at Fort Knox. The Tea Party “groups are armed, have combative training and some are former Military Snipers. Some may have explosives training / experience,” according to the intel report.

An intel report update, dated Monday, 26 April 2010, noted that a “rally at the Militia compound occurred,” and “Viable threats … have been made… Many members were extremely agitated at what they referred to as Government intervention and over taxation in their lives. Alcohol use ‘fanned the flames.’ Many military grade firearms were openly carried. An ad hoc ’shoot the government agent’ event was held with prizes (alcohol) given for the best shot placement.”

In addition to being drunkards, the report describes the Tea Party as bomb-throwers. “Components of bomb making are reported to have been on the site. Some members have criminal records relating to explosive and weapons violations.”

In response to the this “immediate threat,” the military established concentration camps for “mass arrests.”

QRF, short for the Quick Reaction Force of the 16th Cavalry Regiment and the 194th Armored Brigade were placed on two hour recall. “The 26 April order gives specific instructions for the 5-15 CAV (a 16th Cavalry battalion) to have weapons, ammo, vehicles and communications at ready, and it places the other 2,200 members of the units on two-hour recall. In other words, these orders are to gear up for defending Ft. Knox against Tea Party folks and their co-conspirators who oppose nationalization of our health care sector,” writes Alexander.

Military officers and enlisted personnel told Alexander about their concerns:

As one put it, the exercise “misrepresents freedom loving Americans as drunken, violent racists — the opponents of Obama’s policies have been made the enemy of the U.S. Army.”

They were equally concerned that command staff at Ft. Knox had signed off on this exercise, noting, “it has been issued and owned by field grade officers who lead our battalions and brigades,” which is to say many Lieutenant Colonels saw this order before it was implemented.

In fact, we can assume this “exercise” was orchestrated at the highest levels in the Pentagon. Lieutenant Colonels merely carry out orders.

An Army document entitled “Army Continuity of Operations Program (COOP)” spells out the militarization of the U.S. “Homeland” under Northcom.

In July, 2009, Infowars reported on a Missouri National Guard unit out of Camp Crowder engaged in a training exercise designed to take on a fictitious militant group. An earlier exercise in the Black Hills of South Dakota trained soldiers to confront an “insurgent group” with “a reputation for harassing convoys with ambushes and improvised explosive devices.”

In September, 2008, the Pentagon announced the 3rd Infantry Division’s 1st Brigade Combat Team would be deployed in the United States under the control of Northcom. “They may be called upon to help with civil unrest and crowd control or to deal with potentially horrific scenarios such as massive poisoning and chaos in response to a chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear or high-yield explosive, or CBRNE, attack,” the Army Times reported. (Emphasis added.)

Since the end of the Civil War deployment of the U.S. military inside the U.S. has been prohibited under The Posse Comitatus Act.

In early 2006, the 109th Congress passed a bill containing controversial provisions granting the president the ability to use federal troops inside the United States in emergency situations. These changes (in Section 1076) were included in the John Warner Defense Appropriation Act for Fiscal Year 2007. In 2008, Congress restored many of the earlier limitations on the president’s ability to deploy troops within the United States, but Bush issued a signing statement indicating he was not bound by the changes. Obama has taken up with signing statements where Bush left off.

A report issued in 2008 by the U.S. Army War College discussed the use of American troops to quell civil unrest brought about by a worsening economic crisis. The report from the War College’s Strategic Studies Institute warned that the U.S. military must prepare for a “violent, strategic dislocation inside the United States” that could be provoked by “unforeseen economic collapse” or “loss of functioning political and legal order.”

For more than a decade the Pentagon has endeavored to acclimate Americans to the presence of troops on the streets. Instances of the Pentagon putting troops on the streets are numerous and have increased in frequency over the last few years.

In March of 2009, Infowars reported on U.S. Army soldiers dispatched in Samson, Alabama, supposedly in response to a rampaging gunman.

In December, 2008, the Marine Corps Air and Ground Combat Center and the local California Highway Patrol worked together “in a joint effort to reduce accidents and drinking and driving” in San Bernardino County, a blatant violation of Posse Comitatus.

The Iowa National Guard planned an exercise in the small town of Arcadia but rolled back the invasion after citizens complained about soldiers patrolling the streets of an American town.

Military police were positioned at the 2009 Kentucky Derby and in April of the same year 400 National Guard Combat Support Battalion troops were dispatched to “maintain public order” at the Boston Marathon.

In April of 2009, an Infowars reader sent a page taken from the Hardeman County, Tennessee, Bulletin Times announcing a seat belt checkpoint to be conducted on April 4 “in conjunction with a Homeland Security training exercise by the 251st Military Police in Bolivar who recently returned from Iraq.”

On April 15, 2009, Paul Joseph Watson reported on the Maryland National Guard put on alert in anticipation of Tax Day nationwide Tea Party protests. A Force Protection Advisory issued on April 11 instructed the National Guard to be on alert during the Tea Party protests because Guardsmen and Guard facilities might become “targets of opportunity.” It was later learned that the Department of Homeland Security had put the protesters under surveillance.

Adding the Tea Party to the list of “insurgents” is a new and especially surreal development, but hardly an unexpected one considering the fear of the establishment to this growing political movement.

A poll conducted earlier this month found supporters of the Tea Party to be primarily white, male, married and older than 45.

“Of the 18 percent of Americans who identified themselves as supporters, 20 percent, or 4 percent of the general public, said they had given money or attended a Tea Party event, or both. These activists were more likely than supporters generally to describe themselves as very conservative and had more negative views about the economy and Mr. Obama. They were more angry with Washington and intense in their desires for a smaller federal government and deficit,” the New York Times reported.

They are not, as the DHS and the Southern Poverty Law Center would have it, disgruntled returning veterans, white supremacists, and violent militia members who hate Obama because of his skin color.

Over the last several months the government and corporate media have endeavored to portray this demographic as potentially violent and has fallaciously connected it to white supremacists and a mythical militia movement that is supposedly gearing up to attack the government.

If we are to believe the above report, the U.S. military is preparing to attack Tea Party supporters. All that will be required is an appropriate false flag event to set this act in motion.

Military Wants to Super-Charge Troop Smarts

The Pentagon’s been trying to get ahead of the curve on neuroscience for years, toying with ideas like mind-reading whether people are lying and performance-degrading drugs for enemy combatants. Now, it’s launching a major effort to harness neuroscience in a way that might better prepare soldiers for the mental rigors of modern warfare.

In a series of small business solicitations released last week, the Office of the Secretary of Defense outlined plans for a new “Cognitive Readiness Technology” program with the aim of “making our warfighters as cognitively strong as they are physically strong.”

Neuroscience is at the locus of the program. Before they can super-charge cognition, Pentagon scientists need to understand exactly how it works. So they’re launching “Neuromorphic Models of Human Social Cultural Behavior” (HSCB) to accurately model human cognition, including how we perceive, learn and retain information. HSCB models already exist, and are used by troops and decision-makers to predict the outcome of a choices during a mission. But the models “are only as good as the fidelity of the human behavior representations (HBR) that form them.” Right now, those representations are based entirely on empirical observation, which the military wants to swap out for a model that can tap into “the functions of the brain that give rise to actual human cognition.”

It’s not the first time the Pentagon has tried to map the human mind. Last year, research agency Darpa requested proposals for systems that would synchronize neural brain waves to optimize the mind’s storage capacity and memory recall. The agency has also tried to create synthetic versions of living brains, complete with “neuroscience-inspired architecture.”

The military wants cognitive mapping to help assess troop readiness in a war-zone. Their small-business solicitations include a request for embeddable body sensors that could automatically determine mental preparedness, which can be influenced by factors like fatigue, cognitive overload or stress, based on physiological and neural data. The sensors would do more than just analyze the cognitive status of their wearer — they’d be combined with the data from other team members, to instantly identify just how performance-ready a given unit actually is.

But no matter how cognitively capable troops become, they’ll still rely on computers to handle much of their workload. Humans, the solicitation notes, “are quick to arrive at initial decisions,” but computers can more quickly calculate pros and cons of different tactics. That’s why the military also wants neuroscience to “bridge the human-machine systems gap” and turn troops and computers into collaborative units. Their “neuro-cognitive control of human machine systems,” would tap into the neural signals that indicate desired actions, then transmit them to a computer to determine the optimal approach and carry it out.

And a training program that emphasizes brawny brains over bodies reflects a trend across Pentagon departments: Just last month, the Army announced a redesign of their physical-fitness program to accommodate troops spending more time behind computer screens than they do on their feet.

ABC Australia, 250+ Children Seriously Sick from Vaccine 1 Dead

Parents recount flu jab nightmare

By Amy Simmons and Brigid Andersen

Posted Thu Apr 29, 2010 12:49pm AEST

More and more parents from around the country are recounting horrific flu jab experiences amid mounting controversy over adverse reactions to the seasonal flu vaccine.

Australia's chief medical officer, Professor Jim Bishop, has urged doctors not to use the vaccine on children under five, following more than 250 reports of adverse reactions - a figure experts and parents fear is being severely underestimated.

In Queensland, health authorities are also investigating the death of a two-year-old Brisbane girl, which may be linked to the flu vaccine.

As the vaccine saga unfolds, whether or not to vaccinate has also been a hot topic in online parenting forums such as Essential Baby, where hundreds of mothers and fathers have expressed their fears and detailed nightmare stories of their children's reactions.

Perth mother Marrisa Moir told ABC News Online her two-year-old son began gagging and squealing in the bath about four hours after having the flu vaccine on April 9.

She says Rohan, who has Global Developmental Delay with hypotonia - a condition where milestones are not met at expected ages - has regressed since the ordeal.

"He started staring off into space with this weird look on his face then his eyes rolled back and started going bright red and watering," she said.

"I grabbed him out of the bath and then he started shaking uncontrollably. He couldn't stand or hold anything, he was shaking that much.

"He curled his arms over his chest and kept gagging and letting out squeals and I had no idea what the hell was going on."

Ms Moir says she drove "like a mad woman" to get her son to the Princess Margaret Hospital. She said he passed out on the way there.

"The doctor said it was a febrile convulsion and that 30 minutes was pretty long," she said.

"She [the doctor] thought it was related to the flu needle he'd had and also said they have had quite a few cases of the same thing happening."

Ms Moir says since the post-flu vaccine seizure, Rohan has continued to experience mild seizures lasting about 10 seconds.

"We had an EEG [electroencephalogram] today to monitor that," she said.

"He has gone backwards since having the major seizure in regards to his development and his muscles are a bit weaker.

"We are working on physio and play skills again to get him up to speed, but I've been told it could take some time."

'It was horrible'

Another mother, from North Ryde in New South Wales, says her 18-month-old daughter woke in the middle of the night in a puddle of vomit with a soaring temperature and high heart rate.

Lydia says her daughter Sophie had the flu vaccine on the morning of March 30.

"I was assured by the GP that Sophie would probably not have any side effects and, at worst, she would develop a mild temperature," Lydia said.

"At 3.00pm Sophie started shuddering, became very distressed and felt hot. I gave her Panadol and put her in a tepid bath about 20 minutes later as she was so hot.

"At about 3.40pm her temperature reached 40 degrees. She then started vomiting. I telephoned the GP who told me to give her Nurofen and Panadol and to take her to hospital if her temperature did not come down in half an hour.

"Her temperature, thankfully, started to come down ... but at about 8.30pm, Sophie woke up in a huge pile of vomit, was very distressed and had a high temperature. She also had a rash on areas of her arms that looked like hives.

"My husband noticed her heart was racing so we took her to Royal North Shore Hospital [St Leonards, Sydney]."

Lydia said the nurse at the hospital told her she had seen "many" children with high temperatures and vomiting after receiving the flu injection.

"The doctor on duty also informed us that he had seen three other children that day alone with similar symptoms following the injection," she said.

Lydia says she and her husband are concerned about whether the vaccine will continue to affect Sophie in the future.

"My husband and I were very worried. We have never seen her that sick in her whole life. She has never had a 40 degree temperature," Lydia said.

"She also has never thrown up as much as she did that day and night. She was so distressed. It was horrible. I would have never got this done to my perfectly healthy child if I was informed about the possible reactions."

And it seems the adverse reactions are not just occurring in children under the age of five.

A mother from Bardon, in Brisbane's west, says her three children aged four, six and eight all suffered rapidly rising temperatures in excess of 39 degrees Celsius, severe headaches and repeated vomiting.

She says the shots were administered by a GP, who "was very much of the opinion that the reactions were a response to the vaccine".

Reporting channels

The Federal Government says it has a national reporting line set up for individuals and health professionals to report adverse drug and vaccine reactions, which it says has been in place for decades.

Queensland and Western Australia's health departments both say the onus is on doctors to record adverse reactions to vaccines.

But some parents have told ABC News Online that health authorities dismissed their concerns that their child's reaction may be linked to the flu vaccine.

Jim Hocking from Armadale, near Perth, says both his children had to be hospitalised within days of receiving the flu vaccine in June last year.

"We've ended up with two really sick kids in the space of a week. We haven't taken them to any playgroups, they haven't been around any kids that have been notably sick and now they've absolutely crashed in a day or two," he said.

Mr Hocking said he and his wife told doctors at the Armadale hospital that their children had just had the flu vaccine, but he says there has never been any follow-up and he has no idea if their cases were ever reported.

"You're at a public hospital, you're being dealt with as an emergency case. The only avenue we've been able to raise it with is with our local GP," he said.

"At the end of the day we haven't had any follow-up from anybody."

Mr Hocking says he is worried that health authorities may view cases in isolation if there are no clear channels of reporting reactions.

"It is worrying ... if they don't know that there's a problem. I guess with any injection they give it would be an advantage to have someone to call to say there's been a reaction. It would make sense to certainly have an easier way to report your concerns," he said.

Earlier this week, Kirsten Maloney from the ACT complained that her daughter's reaction to the flu vaccine had so far not been recorded by ACT officials.

The ACT's chief medical officer, Dr Charles Guest, has said there are no reports of serious reactions to the vaccine in the ACT.

But Ms Maloney says her daughter was admitted to hospital after she received the injection.

"There was an adverse drug reaction report filled out by one of the pharmacists at Canberra Hospital, and all the doctors that we talked to and the paediatricians that we spoke to acknowledged that it was most likely the reaction to the flu shot," she said.

"I don't understand how [Dr Guest] doesn't know about that."

Brisbane mother Jodi Hahn said her son reacted 12 hours after having the swine flu vaccine, but authorities told her he probably had croup.

Five weeks after her son was rushed to hospital with febrile convulsions, vomiting and fever, Queensland Health has finally agreed to officially record his case as a reaction to the vaccine.

Peter Collignon, a professor of infectious diseases from the Australian National University, says the number of recorded cases of adverse reactions is probably underestimated, given authorities have no system in place to monitor people's reactions.

He says an effective surveillance system should monitor thousands of people for one or two weeks after vaccination before rolling out the vaccine to the entire population.

"We need a better system than voluntary notification to the TGA [Therapeutic Goods Administration] that there's a problem," he said.

"Because whenever you do that you really underestimate how much of a problem there is."

Health authorities are investigating the recent spike in reports of reactions.
