Majority of Americans Believe Congress is Corrupt

Posted by feww on September 29, 2015

The American majority apathetic, or altered?

75% of Americans see widespread government corruption, and majority believes that most members of Congress are corrupt, according to Gallup.

Most Americans believe that most members of Congress are corrupt, says a report.

” Majorities believe that most members of Congress are ‘out of touch with average Americans’ (79%), ‘focused on the needs of special interests’ rather than the needs of their constituents (69%) and corrupt (52%).”

75% in U.S. See Widespread Government Corruption—Gallup

Three in four Americans (75%) say corruption is widespread in the U.S. government. This figure is up from two in three in 2007 (67%) and 2009 (66%), said Gallup.

The numbers have fluctuated marginally since 2007; however,  the trend has remained unchanged since 2010. However, the percentage of U.S. adults who see corruption as pervasive has always been more than a majority in the past decade, fueled by various controversies including the U.S. Justice Department’s firings of U.S. attorneys and the IRS scandal, says Gallup.

U.S. government corruption is ranked at number 13 on a list of most corrupt countries that allegedly have “free press,”according to the report.

The top 12 countries with most corrupt governments that precede U.S.  are Lithuania (90%), Portugal, Ghana, Spain, Czech Republic, Slovenia, Jamaica, Costa Rica, Poland, Taiwan, Cypress and Mauritius (75%).

Sweden has he least corrupt governmnet (14%), according to Gallup analysis.

Red Cross Raised $500Million for Haiti ­and Built Six Homes

Posted by feww on June 5, 2015

Where is the money?

After the devastating 2010 earthquake that struck Haiti, Western hemisphere’s poorest country, the Red Cross received about $500 million in donations.

“In late 2011, the Red Cross launched a multimillion-dollar project to transform the desperately poor area, which was hit hard by the earthquake that struck Haiti the year before. The main focus of the project — called LAMIKA, an acronym in Creole for ‘A Better Life in My Neighborhood’ — was building hundreds of permanent homes,” according to a report by ProPublica and NPR.

“Today, not one home has been built in Campeche [a neighborhood that sprawls up a steep hillside in Haiti’s capital city, Port-au-Prince.] Many residents live in shacks made of rusty sheet metal, without access to drinkable water, electricity or basic sanitation. When it rains, their homes flood and residents bail out mud and water.”

The Red Cross claims it has provided homes to at least 130,000 people. But the investigation found that the group has built only six homes in all of Haiti.

Red Cross CEO Gail McGovern unveiled ambitious plans to “develop brand-new communities,” after the earthquake devastated the country. “None has ever been built,” says the report.

Red Cross saw the Haiti earthquake disaster as “a spectacular fundraising opportunity,” says a former official who helped with the fundraising. “Michelle Obama, the NFL and a long list of celebrities appealed for donations to the group”

Now, the Red Cross refuses to release details of how it has spent the hundreds of millions of dollars donated for Haiti. But the investigation reveals that far less money reached the quake victims than the Red Cross has claimed.

American Freedom: Myth, or ‘Dirty Joke?’

‘PRISM’: Anything So Patently Evil, Applied on Such Grand Scales, WILL Backfire in Big Ways

For the past five years, FIRE-EARTH Moderators have protested about censorship of news and information and abuse of their intellectual property rights, posted on this as well as several affiliated blogs, by Google and their business partners.

prism-slide-5
Slide No 5 does NOT include companies that are protected by the NSA-FBI in their joint venture Internet spy program.

The following are the facts about data mining, information censorship and related issues based on professional and personal experiences of the Blog Moderators, their colleagues and friends.

  • PRISM cannot operate successfully without the collaboration of the so-called tech giants, which include Microsoft, Yahoo, Google, Facebook, Paltalk, AOL, Skype, YouTube and Apple according to the report.
  • The scope of data mining as it pertains to commercial participants goes all the way down to smaller companies and includes blog and micro-blog providers like Twitter [the surveillance world’s preferred weapon of choice because of the ease by which it’s data-mined] and WordPress, which host FIRE-EARTH.
  • The roots of large-scale data mining operations are sewn in industrial espionage and have very little to do with the so called “war-on-terror.” [The Benghazi planned murders, massive government monitoring of the AP, recent IRS shenanigans … provide ample proof.]
    • Note: Industrial espionage, or economic espionage, is the stealing of commercial data and secrets from its legitimate owners for use by other parties. This form of espionage is conducted solely for commercial purposes and has little to do with national security. Furthermore, this type of theft is NOT usually perpetrated by foreign governments, as the current case clearly shows.
  • While the tech giants have denied any knowledge of PRISM, or similar programs operating under other acronyms, the fact remains that the government programs do not have the ability to instantly remove, or bury  unwanted materials posted on the Internet, as experienced by the blog moderators. Google does!
    • Note: Despite FIRE-EARTH’s unsurpassed record of accurate disaster forecasts, the blog traffic was cut down overnight by 80-90 percent on January 29, 2013.
  • “They quite literally can watch your ideas form as you type,” said a career intelligence officer who [allegedly] leaked PowerPoint slides about PRISM and supporting materials to The Washington Post in order to expose what he believes to be a gross intrusion on privacy.
    • Despite any Psyop undertones that maybe hidden in the above statement, pointing to “self-censorship,” FIRE-EARTH moderators experience the real-time surveillance almost constantly.

Thailand’s Corrupt Politics Finally Boils Over

With a Nod and a Wink from Thai King Bhumibol Adulyadej, Troops Move in Against Demonstrators

Despite their earlier promise not to intervene, Thai troops moved into two anti-government camps in the capital, Bangkok, to drive out the demonstrators.

At least a dozen people have been killed and more than 250 injured in the clashes so far as security forces fired tear gas, water cannons, rubber bluets and live rounds on demonstrators.

The army had earlier said they would not intervene in the demonstrations, but the King of Thailand decided to unleash his troops against the so called red-shirt protesters who have been campaigning against poverty, corrupt politics and injustice in Thailand since March 12.

Japan’s Mikasa Foods to fire its entire staff!

Mikasa Foods Co., an Osaka-based wholesaler, which sold “industrial-use” rice unfit for human consumption to food manufacturers, will fire its entire workforce of about 100 employees because of fallout from the scandal, Japan’s Asahi Shimbun reported.

“While the company will close operations at its rice cooking and processing factory in Toyonaka, Osaka Prefecture, it will maintain its Kyushu factory in Chikuzen, Fukuoka Prefecture, which resold government stocks of contaminated rice imported from China and other countries that it had purchased at low prices.” (source)

Why Didn’t China Prevent the Loss of 86,000 Lives?

Posted by feww on May 29, 2008

China Regime: As Evil as Evil Comes!

Are Earthquake Predictions in China Political?

The following excerpts are from an article written by Wu Weilin, Epoch Times Staff [ May 28, 2008 ] Full Article

Was the recent devastating earthquake in Sichuan, China predicted before it struck? Did the Chinese regime ignore earthquake warnings and thereby caused the loss of more than 86,000 lives?

“On July 28, 2006, the Director of the China Earthquake Administration, Chen Jianmin, was speaking on a program of the regime’s mouth piece, China’s Central TV station. He stated with certainty that earthquakes were predictable. But immediately after the recent devastation in Sichuan, Chinese officials claimed that the prediction of earthquakes was a tough task worldwide. Another commentator said that earthquake prediction in China is a political issue.” Said Wu Weilin of Epoch Times.

What Happened to the Predictions?

“According to Chen, China has been predicting earthquakes since the Xingtai earthquake back in 1966, which killed 8,064 people. ‘Through continuous scientific research and information gained from many actual cases, we can make a prediction on a certain type of earthquake.’ However, after the earthquake in Sichuan took place, Zhang Ziaodong from the China Earthquake Networks Center held a press conference at China’s State Department on May 13. At the conference Zhang denied the quake in Sichuan was predictable and said that predicting earthquakes was a ‘difficult task worldwide.'”

Why did the Chinese media stay quiet about this important issue? “A frontline reporter disclosed that Beijing had sent out rules on reporting the earthquake, ‘To propagate positive, constructive news and forbidding criticism and introspective articles.’ Recently, according to our source, Beijing has officially banned discussing the subject of earthquake prediction in public.

“However, more and more information has indicated accurate prediction on the quake had been presented to Beijing on many occasions. The communist military had also taken preventative measures based on the predictions.”

Predictions Had Saved Lives Before, Why Not This Time?

“Chen also said during an interview with CCTV two years ago, that following an accurate prediction, a quake that took place in China on February 4, 1975, only took 1,300 lives instead of 100,000. Chen also gave examples from overseas, how predicting earthquakes had cut down the number of deaths – only three died in California in 2003 and 40 in Japan in 2004, two countries where earthquake prediction was released before the event.

“By May 24, 2008, the Sichuan quake was estimated to have killed 60,560, injured 352,290, and 26,221 people were still missing, according to information released from China’s State Department. A Chinese social economist, He Qinglian, commented about the difference in speeches coming out of Beijing about quake prediction before and after Sichuan, ‘In China, earthquake prediction is pure science and earthquake forecasting announcement is pure politics. This is how it works in China, whether in the past or present.‘” [emphasis added.]
