In WikiRebels, we learn about the early hacker life of Julian Assange, and his later decision to form an organization where whistleblowers can anonymously pass information that documents crime and immorality. His stated goal is to expose injustice, and nothing exemplifies this more than the leaked film entitled “Collateral Murder.”

Published in April of 2010, the military video drew global attention for the callous reaction of the US soldiers who shot unarmed civilians in Baghdad in 2007, even killing a father who happened upon the murder scene while driving his children to school. WikiRebels shows other films released by WikiLeaks, and catalogs the most significant leaks since its 2006 inception, including the Iceland banking scandal, Kenya corruption and death squads, and toxic dumping in Cote D’Ivoire.

Assange’s stated hope was that alternative media would disseminate the leaks – amounting to over a million documents to date – in a way that would drive positive change. In the film (and in various interviews), he expressed disappointment that alternative media has mostly been unable to adequately analyze and synthesize the data contained in the massive data dumps. So, the whistleblower organization turned to corporate media, with its deep pockets. The Guardian (UK), Der Spiegel (Germany) and the New York Times (US) brokered a deal to publish their analysis of the documents at the same time.

Though this controversy is not mentioned in the rough cut of WikiRebels, such a move launched widespread suspicion that the group is part of a carefully contrived psychological operation. I discount this in Criminalizing Whistleblowers: Wikileaks and America’s SHIELD Legislation. Speculation about the source of the documents is much easier than analyzing the thousands of released documents. More at seismologik.com

Thorium is readily available & can be turned into energy without generating transuranic wastes. Thorium’s capacity as nuclear fuel was discovered during WW II, but ignored because it was unsuitable for making bombs. A liquid-fluoride thorium reactor (LFTR) is the optimal approach for harvesting energy from Thorium, and has the potential to solve today’s energy/climate crisis. LFTR is a type of Thorium Molten Salt Reactor (Th-MSR). This video summarizes over 6 hours worth of thorium talks given by Kirk Sorensen and other thorium technologists.

    Flourine is extremely toxic.
    COMBUSTION. WATER & FLUORINE REACT TO PRODUCE HYDROFLUORIC ACID.
    OXIDIZING/REDUCING AGENTS, METALS, MOST ORGANIC/INORGANIC
    FLUORINE-SKIN: IRRITATION, ACID-LIKE BURNS, TISSUE DESTRUCTION.
    EYES: ACID-LIKE BURNS. INHALATION: IRRITATION OF LUNGS/ NASAL
    PASSAGES, ACID-LIKE BURNS TO MUCOUS MEMBRANES OF LUNGS & NOSE,
    ABNORMAL FLUID BUILD UP IN LUNGS WHICH MAY BE FATAL. HIGHLY
    CORROSIVE TO LIVING TISSUE. CONCENTRATIONS >25 PPM MAY BE FATAL

  • WOW! This was an “I got it” moment Kirk…thank you so much! You are an amazing guy with MASSIVE determination…and thanks for that too!
    I’m a “synergy design consultant” from Marin County, CA(with a degree in wholstic health/synergy–1980)…living in Asia for 20 years. With the US gov. still dragging their collective feet on thorium after 49 years…maybe the best thing you could do to foster global thorium reactor production… would be to come to Asia and assist in building them?!?!?!
    I’d love to help you in any way that I could. Please contact me if you’d like to discuss possibilities.

    Hmmm

    Westinghouse corporation built 2 fully functional thorium power plants in the 70′s Carter under immense pressure from oil/gas/coal and defense industries outlawed all thorium reactors. One of the reasons given was that they represented a threat to US National security because you cannot manufacture fissionable material from thorium reactors!c The technology costs a fraction of conventional reactors and has in relative terms none of the problems of disposal of spent fuel. In short was the answer to US dependence on foreign fossil fuels. It was not to be because literally trillions of dollars would have been lost by………….the oil/gas/coal/defense industries! It was all about the security the people and the Nation taking a back seat to profits fof the 1/10 of 1%. And yes in essence it really was that simple. The American people were sold out.
