Plume Gate: Media Silent Over Feds Fukushima Coverup


Nearly a week after FOIA documents revealed a massive concerted government orchestrated Fukushima cover up, the corporate media remains silent.

The FOIA documents, emails and transcripts I wrote about in the NRC cover-up article have been out for at least two weeks.

The three groups that petitioned for them to be released have remained quiet, very quiet, choosing instead to post the documents online and see who runs with it. carried several editorials, but nothing that connected all the dots together.

Let’s see if I can put bluntly what others will not say:

The executive branch and multiple federal agencies, agencies tasked with keeping the American public safe, did their best to hide and to cover-up information about a deadly radioactive plume and ensuing fallout that was headed for the West Coast of the United States from Japan.

The fact it was real and did arrive is proven by samplings from milk, vegetables and rainwater.

Even though EPA testing methodology and actual capability were questioned, independent sources verified the fallout.

To those who say radiation does not travel in a plume or that fallout is a local phenomenon, there is an excellent distillation of the book ‘Chernobyl: Consequences of the Catastrophe for People and the Environment’ at that proves otherwise.

The evidence obtained in the FOIA request indicates that right from the start, the NRC had a clear idea of the significance of the disaster that was unfolding, but concealed the truth from the American public.

The results of the plume and fallout can be measured in the rise of infant mortality rates: cells of unborn and newborn children are dividing at a much higher rate than those of a mature adult, thus the amount of damage is greatly increased and hence more detectable.

Conservative estimates place the number of stillborn following the Fukushima accident at over 18,000. How many could have been saved by simply warning folks to stay indoors?

Why didn’t a FEMA emergency broadcast warn athletes to practice indoors or not at all? What about pregnant women, why were they not given precautionary measures?

A word about the energy industry: technology suppression is the name of the game. How else do you maintain an energy monopoly? If Stan Meyer’s water car or the Japanese production water car had ever made it to market, lot’s of super rich energy barons would have lost all their power and money: history proves they will stop at nothing to maintain this monopoly.

Why are solar cells restricted if they are more than 20% efficient? Why are power systems greater than 70% efficient restricted?

Just consider how difficult it is to control a nuclear chain reaction that boils water, turning a turbine and generating electricity. Einstein once said: ‘Nuclear power is a hell of a way to boil water!’ But what if you could turn your home into a solar generating station and bypass these monopolies?

What if there were clean energy, but it was not in a form that could be easily monopolized? What if the dirty and dangerous energy sources were the ones the elite could control, thus explaining why we continue to suffer from incidents like the BP Gulf Oil Disaster, Three Mile Island or Fukushima and why solar cells are restricted to 20% efficiency.

Telling the truth about all this is very dangerous. A Japanese research scientist was recently found ‘suicided’ with a plastic bag over his head after posting results of his tests online. There are others who have died under mysterious circumstances as well.

In any case, the emails and conference call transcripts reveal the cover up, there can be no other conclusion-even with heavy redaction-the plan was to do everything possible to limit the public knowledge and paint as positive a picture as possible.

Saving the nuclear industry was paramount. Talking points were (are) a big factor. They knew the plume was coming.

There was no effort to warn Americans. No one told folks to stay indoors, or to not be out jogging or playing sports, not even the first 3-4 weeks when the heaviest amounts were raining down on us.

Obama and family spent some time in South America around the 18th of March, so they were safe during the worst of the plume. But what about the rest of us? And what about the agencies involved that conspired to hide this from the American public? Agencies whose purpose is to protect Americans?

Is their real purpose just the opposite? To protect the corporate and protect the state at all costs? What about all the press agencies and ‘alternative’ media that remains silent on these matters….they have access to the emails and transcripts like anyone else….are they bought and paid for? Are they afraid?

Credit must be given to for posting the original editorials and to the Intel Hub who had the courage and patriotism to run the article and place it on the headline ticker.

Only the Alexander Higgins blog has followed suit. Everyone else in the mainstream and ‘alternative’ media is silent.

Coincidentally, the Wikileaks document dump and Qur’an burning are taking center stage while the cover-up that killed over 18,000 unborn infants is not. So who can you trust in the media? Who can you trust in the ‘alternative’ media?

Considering the far reaching implications of ‘Plume-Gate’, the cover-up, the infant deaths and the election year we find ourselves in, can you trust a source unwilling to speak about this grave matter?

Is it possible the ‘alternative’ media has been co-opted, infiltrated and corrupted to a large degree? It is this author’s opinion that any media source not shouting about Plume-Gate as loud as they can are likely controlled by the powers-that-be.

Those sources are the most dangerous, the ones who gain your confidence by broadcasting the truth for years only to deceive you at the final moment when it will hurt you the most. So who do you trust?

In the words of the famous philosopher J. Krishnamurti, maybe its time we should ‘think on these things’.

FOIA Documents: please take the time to examine both the 395 page document and the186 page document in order to more fully comprehend the nature of the cover-up. All of this information has been forwarded to both mainstream and ‘alternative” media sources.

Note From Intel Hub Co Founder Alex Thomas:Many in the alternative media have been extremely busy covering the impending war with Iran and other important issues and may have just not came across these FOIA documents. (I know we have missed important stories in the past simply because we hadn’t came across them)The alternative media will most likely start to hit this story hard while the corporate media will remain quiet.

It should also be noted that Jeff Rense at and Mike Rivero at linked the original article by Tony which drove a tremendous amount of traffic and people to the article that would have otherwise not seen it. Thanks to them, tens of thousands of more people read our original article.
