Airport Naked Body Scanners: Experts Now Warn X-ray Devices “could give you cancer” “because the beam concentrates on the skin — one of the most radiation-sensitive organs of the human body — that (the) dose may be up to 20 times higher than first estimated”

Airport Body Scanners Under Pressure: Experts Now Warn X-ray Devices “could give you cancer”

Activist Post

As we wrote in our newsletter this week: scanners and backscatter devices are under pressure from all sides.  Despite the best efforts of Michael Chertoff and the TSA, word is out that Backscatter X-ray scanner technology that is being used in airports is exceedingly harmful, along with being an invasion of privacy.

An increasing number of people are becoming informed and are deciding to opt-out of the radiation and the X-rated detail of you and your family.  Naturally, this has forced the TSA to threaten more invasive physical searches, as they try to coerce people into taking the “easier” option.  This is a sign of desperation, since the success of these machines in airports will determine the future of their presence throughout America. They already are being deployed in street roving vans, and are most likely headed to a mall near you if the public doesn’t continue to raise its voice.

This Daily Mail article on the subject is another nail in the coffin for X-ray scanning technology.  Even if you don’t care about privacy issues, the fact that experts are now saying that “radiation from the scanners has been underestimated,” and that “because the beam concentrates on the skin — one of the most radiation-sensitive organs of the human body — that (the) dose may be up to 20 times higher than first estimated,” should sound the final alarm.

G. Edward Griffin and Idaho state representative, Phil Hart, have made a strong case that the states have jurisdiction over this Federal program, which has yet to be approved by Congress.

The battle almost has been won before it began; with public support of proposed state legislation, we will see these machines sent to the waste bin where they belong.

Sarah Palin stands up for Dan Fagan, Anchorage talk-show host who was pulled after creatively protesting Alaska Court’s decision to allow sore looser, Lisa Murkowski’s name to be on a write-in list

Lisa, are you going to shut down my Facebook page for writing this?

by Sarah Palin on Friday, October 29, 2010 at 9:20pm

Yesterday, Lisa Murkowski’s hired guns threatened radio host Dan Fagan, and more importantly, the station that airs Fagan’s show, with legal action for allegedly illegal “electioneering.” The station, unlike Murkowski, who is flush with millions of dollars from vested corporate interests, does not have a budget for a legal defense. So it did what any small market station would do when threatened by Beltway lawyers charging $500 to $1000 an hour – they pulled Dan Fagan off the air.

Does all this sound heavy handed? It is. It is an interference with Dan Fagan’s constitutional right to free speech. It is also a shocking indictment against Lisa Murkowski. How low will she go to hold onto power? First, she gets the Division of Elections to change its write-in process – a process that Judge Pfiffner correctly determined had been in place without change for 50 years. She is accepting financial support from federal contractors, an act that is highly questionable and now pending before the FEC. And today, she played her last card. She made it clear that if you disagree with her and encourage others to exercise their civic rights, she’ll take you off the air.

The concept of “electioneering” involves several issues, but typically refers to campaigning at the polls, which is appropriately banned. Under federal law, it can also mean paying for advertising on broadcast media during a federal election cycle, and it requires disclosures if done by groups and corporations. Fagan used satire to mock Murkowski’s write-in efforts and encouraged Alaskans to run as write-in candidates. That is not illegal. That is free speech.

Individuals like Dan Fagan have a fundamental right to speak their minds without threats from the incumbent Senator from Alaska.

Jesse Ventura Calls For New 9/11 Investigation; Challenges Media

Jesse Ventura Calls For New 9/11 Investigation; Challenges Media

Steve Watson
October 29, 2010

Jesse Ventura Calls For New 9/11 Investigation; Challenges Media 281010VenturaFormer Governor of Minnesota, ex-Navy SEAL and retired pro-wrestler Jesse Ventura has renewed the call for a new investigation into the events of 9/11 in the face of dramatic new evidence that is coming to light every week.

“You’ve got all this evidence but clearly when you look at what happened, and the results of all of it, it shows clearly that these commissions and these official government investigations are frauds.” Ventura told nationally syndicated radio host Alex Jones.

“They don’t seek the truth, they are there to simply push the government’s story of whatever that may be – what they want said about what happened.” Ventura continued as he and Jones presented and analyzed previously unseen video and eyewitness accounts from September 11 2001 that suggest secondary explosions were a contributing factor to the destruction of the World Trade Center.

“When you look at the whole commission, it got run by Zelikow, who comes right out of the White House – he was the guy in charge. If they didn’t unanimously agree on something, it wasn’t even entered into it.” Ventura noted, also adding that the 9/11 Commission failed to even mention the total and symmetrical collapse of building 7, a 47 story skyscraper that was not attacked on 9/11, yet fell straight down into it’s own footprint later the same afternoon.

“Anything that doesn’t fit into their scenario, they just ignore.” Ventura added.

The former governor also noted that originally there was never even going to be an investigation into the attacks of any kind, and that it was only via pressure from the victims’ relatives that a commission was appointed.

“When pressure came from the families and they demanded an investigation, well who’s the first person they come up with to run it? Henry Kissinger. Well, there was outcry and outrage over that because of all of his contacts and everything he’s into… Then you look at it from a logical point of view, did they really and truly want to investigate?” Ventura stated.

“Well when you learn that they spent a hundred million dollars to investigate Whitewater – where ultimately in the end I guess they learned that the president cheated on his wife – and then initially for the murder of 3,000 people at 9/11, they allocate 4 million. It ended up going to 12 or 13 million in the end but that alone should cause you to say there wasn’t a real investigation going to be done here.” he added.

Ventura also commented on the recent video releases from NIST, following Freedom of Information Act requests.Yesterday we highlighted a newly discovered video in which the director of the FBI in New York is seen interviewing firefighters after the collapse of one of the trade towers, and discussing “secondary hits” being responsible.

“NIST has all this information in their possession, and yet their report chooses to ignore it and not even mention it. How much more simple can it be for someone out there to look at that and go ’something is rotten in Denmark here’.” Ventura said.

“Shouldn’t they have at least addressed it and said that ‘well we had many reports of firefighters and officials saying bombs were going off’, and then give an explanation as to why these people were wrong?”

Ventura also had harsh words for the corporate media and it’s culpability in allowing a cover up to prosper.

“You have to remember, the mainstream media is not the ally.” Ventura said.

“I’m just baffled, it’s beyond words. The mainstream media, was supposed to be our fourth branch of government, the unwritten fourth branch by our forefathers. Their job was to be the check, to be the watchdog and watch the other three branches of government and keep them honest, and now that they have sold us out we are in dire straights.” he added.

“These stories should be the lead stories on TV right now. Not do downgrade you or I, but the only place they are hearing them is on your radio show and a few other non mainstream outlets.” Ventura told Jones.

“I’m getting censored more and more. The access that I had two years ago, I had way more two years ago than what I’m getting now. I’m being cut back too, I can’t get on all the shows I’d like to get on anymore.” he added.

Ventura also vilified the media’s portrayal of 9/11 researchers, noting that “The mainstream portrays 9/11 truthers as being some fringe element and some wild crazy liberals or whatever they are out there.”

“They don’t realise that the 9/11 truth movement, the great majority of it is professionals. These are not people that are crazy, in fact they are courageous because they are putting their professional integrity on the line to ask the questions.” Ventura asserted.
