The Chicago Tribune reported this week on a troubling report which discusses systematic Illinois abuse and neglect suffered by local children. Yesterday we discussed state legislative changes which were spurred by the Chicago nursing home abuse of disabled children at Alden Village North. Unfortunately, other facilities may be just as rife with mistreatment.

Experts at the University of Illinois at Chicago released a report through the Department of Children and Family Services which confirms claims from last year of sexual assault of several youth at the Chicago Lakeshore Hospital. The prominent facility receives millions of dollars each year to treat area children who often have traumatic histories of abuse and neglect.  read more

(NaturalNews) It can now be revealed by NaturalNews that the TSA faked its safety data on its X-ray airport scanners in order to deceive the public about the safety of such devices.

As evidenced by recent events in Washington, we now live in an age where the federal government simply fakes whatever documents, news or evidence it wants people to believe, then releases that information as if it were fact. This is the modus operandi of the Department of Homeland Security, which must fabricate false terror alerts to keep itself in business — and now the TSA division has taken the fabrication of false evidence to a whole new level with its naked body scanners.  read more

Even physics professors question the TSA’s obvious cover-up

The evidence of the TSA’s fakery is now obvious thanks to the revelations of a letter signed by five professors from the University of California, San Francisco and Arizona State University.


There is Still No Rigorous Hard Data For The Safety of X-Ray Airport Passenger Scanners The problem remains that the safety of the X-ray airport scanners has not been independently verified. Recently the NIST report on the ‘Rapiscan Secure 1000’, the most widely deployed person X-ray scanner, and the Johns Hopkins report have been made available. However the Johns Hopkins report, which is the more detailed and significant because it refers to the widely deployed Single Pose system, does not hold to critical principles of scientific reporting. The document is heavily redacted with red stamps over the words and figures. In every case the electric current used which correlates one to one with X-ray dose has been specifically redacted. Thus there is no way to repeat any of these measurements. While the report purports to present the results of objective testing, in fact the JHU APL personnel, who are unnamed anywhere in the document either as experimenters or as authors, were not provided with a machine by Rapiscan. Instead they were invited to the manufacturing site to observe a mock-up of components (spare parts) that were said to be similar to those that are parts of the Rapiscan system. The tests were performed by the manufacturer using the manufacturer’s questionable test procedures. Although the doses from Compton Backscatter screening are potentially low, the dose rates are very high, comparable to dose rates in CT machines. These dose rates far exceed the limits specified for the ion chambers that were used in both the JHU measurements and the field measurements using the Fluke 451 reported by the TSA. There are also issues related to the incomplete coverage of the ion chamber by the flying spot of the backscatter machine. The data given in the Johns Hopkins report indicate that there must be something wrong. The very large exposures measured for scatter radiation in the JHL report, 36% of primary exposure above the cabinets outside the direct beam path and 19% of primary exposure in the entrance and exit regions, strongly suggest that the measurement of primary exposure is too low. Scatter exposure is usually at most a few % of the primary exposure, which is consistent with the fact that only a few % incident X-rays are Compton backscattered calling into question the validity of the exposure measurement as well as the validity of this test equipment for a (intense) spot scanner. The report was apparently summarized by the JHU APL; however, without signatories, there is no accountability for the document. Thus, important information has not been provided to the public regarding the beam intensity under operational conditions at airports [X-ray photons per unit area per unit time (because it is scanning)] and/or the related quantity – fluence (being the total energy delivered per unit area, which is equal to the intensity multiplied by the time the spot remains on a given area), values that would be especially useful in calculating the dose. Also the X-ray tube current used in the tests or in the airport setting, that correlates directly with X-ray intensity has always been redacted.  read more

TSA operates in complete secrecy

None of the Rapidscan tests have been available to be subjected to peer review. They are quite literally secret tests using secret techniques engineered by secret researchers. We the People apparently have no right to see the data, nor the methodology, nor even the names of the researchers who supposedly carried out these safety tests.

There shall be no independent testing whatsoever

The TSA adamantly refuses to allow independent testing of the radiation levels being emitted by the machines. The agency is using the cover story that “terrorists might be able to circumvent the technology” if anyone is allowed to actually test the machine.

(NaturalNews) When the Dollarhite family of Nixa, Mo., first started raising and selling bunnies as part of a lesson to teach their teenage son about responsibility and hard work, they had no idea they would eventually meet the heavy hand of the US Department of Agriculture (USDA). According to a recent article covered in Breitbart’s Big Government, the USDA recently ordered the Dollarhite family to pay more than $90,000 in fines because they sold more than $500 worth of rabbits in a year — and if they fail to pay the fine by Monday, May 23, the fine will multiply to nearly $4 million.  read more
