American Journalist Posts: Endangered in Uruguay

kira_salek 2

According to a recent post on Journalist/Travel Writer Kira Salak’s facebook page:

There have been now two attempts on Kira’s life in the last week here in Uruguay. The first one was done by poisoning her in a food store with a neurotoxin, something similar to Sarin or Sarin itself. It is likely that the poison was administered in manner similar to how they killed Georig Markov. The second was a brutal assault in the hospital she was taken for treatment for her for the poisoning…

… Put the MRI, the evidence and the medical records on a DVD. Bring the DVD and the printed letters to your local FBI office and demand that they immediately begin an investigation and protect Kira and her family in Uruguay. We only have access to the US embassy in Uruguay which has told us that under no condition they will help us or protect us.

Much of the post was apparently written by her husband, Jake Sturm. Kira and her husband have written about their efforts to help their epileptic daughter’s condition with cannabis oil. Jake has written extensively about this, and the government/medical community’s efforts to suppress their findings.

Kira Salak  is best known for her travels in Mali and Papua New Guinea. She’s written two books of nonfiction and a book of fiction based on her travels and is a contributing editor at National Geographic magazine.

Jake Sturm blogs about the cannabis cure that saved their daughter, Shyloh Sturm, who was born with metastasized brain cancer, cerebral palsy, strokes, and severe epilepsy.

According to the medical literature, she could not live longer than three months. While doctors were busily preparing for her death, we treated all four of her “untreatable” conditions ourselves using a special cannabis (marijuana) tea that we made for her when she was two months old. (Shyloh had two German doctor prescriptions for the THC.) In order to treat Shyloh successfully, we had to conduct extensive research—which is how we discovered that heirloom, landrace cannabis sativa plants, combined with hemp flowers, fully treat cerebral palsy, stroke, and epilepsy, and cure even the most aggressive forms of cancer.

I would’t advise opening any of the files. Also, don’t go directly to the apostlesoil dot com’s homepage – it will immediately download the zip file.

The text of the post on Kira Salak’s Facebook Page:

There have been now two attempts on Kira’s life in the last week here in Uruguay. The first one was done by poisoning her in a food store with a neurotoxin, something similar to Sarin or Sarin itself. It is likely that the poison was administered in manner similar to how they killed Georig Markov. The second was a brutal assault in the hospital she was taken for treatment for her for the poisoning. Both attempts failed. She is alive. These murder attempts were done by the German government to stop Kira from telling the story on how they are murdering infants and adults in German hospitals. The evidence Kira has proves that this is a state sanctioned program of mass murder. She can also prove that this is being done in the USA and in all across Europe.
Please, I beg of you, to save Kira’s life please download these files immediately before the web server is brought down again:

Hello Everyone,
This is Kira Salak. Many of you know me. I am an American journalist currently living in Uruguay, and I am writing with an urgent request for help. Would you please help me to disseminate the following story to as many people/ journalists as possible?
For more than two years now, I have been investigating Germany’s secret eugenics program, uncovering extensive evidence of the secret, brutal mass slaughter of children. Last week, I suddenly contracted a mysterious respiratory illness and was rushed unconscious to the Colonia del Sacramento, Uruguay’s Hospital’s Intensive Care Unit, where I fell into a coma. My husband, who was a chemical officer in the U.S. Army, recognized it as exposure to a neurotoxin like sarin. Shortly after I came out of the coma, I was drugged by two male orderlies and brutally assaulted. The assaults involved the repeated ramming of blunt instruments deep into my body through my anus and vagina, with the intention to severely injure my organs and cause internal bleeding. After they were done with this procedure, I was bleeding profusely from my genitals and nearly died from the injuries.
Around the time of this assault, a Uruguayan doctor mistakenly revealed that the German Ambassador had called the hospital to ask about me. I believe the on-staff doctor had been given orders by the Germans to murder me, due to my knowledge about Germany’s secret eugenics program. I am trying to find somebody who might be able to help me me break this story. If you know of any way to help, I would be tremendously grateful.
Thank you,
Kira Salak

Put the MRI, the evidence and the medical records on a DVD. Bring the DVD and the printed letters to your local FBI office and demand that they immediately begin an investigation and protect Kira and her family in Uruguay. We only have access to the US embassy in Uruguay which has told us that under no condition they will help us or protect us. We have only a few hours left before they will kill all of us. The German’s are desperate to prevent this truth from coming out. Send this to every single person you know. Tell them to protect Kira, and themselves from the mass murder machine running in the hospitals, that they must download and print these documents and files immediately and get them to their local FBI office and demand an investigation. Also, bring them to your local newspapers. Get everyone demanding that the FBI does what it is mandated to do, protect US citizens, even when they are telling true story about how the USA is killing millions in their hospitals. If we can get this message to thousands of people, and all of them go to their local FBI headquarters and local newspapers, perhaps we can save Kira. But time is short. They will come soon. Help us.
Jake Sturm

I don’t know enough about the situation to verify it, but I have followed the stories of Americans in trouble in the Middle East, specifically in the Gulf States, and I do know that our embassies and our government representatives have a policy of being opposite of helpful in dire situations.

For that reason, I’m posting this. If you know more about this situation, please contact me via FB or at whataretheysaying at yahoo dot com.

The FBI Is Keeping 80,000 Secret Files on the Saudis and 9/11 – The Daily Beast

Why did the Saudi occupants of a posh house in gated community in Sarasota, Florida, suddenly vanish in the two weeks prior to the attacks? And had they been in touch with the leader of the operation, Mohamed Atta, and two of his co-conspirators?

No way, the FBI says, even though the bureau’s own agents did initially suspect the family was linked to some of the hijackers. On further scrutiny, those connections proved unfounded, officials now say.

But a team of lawyers and investigative journalists has found what they say is hard evidence pointing in the other direction. Atta did visit the family before he led 18 men to their deaths and murdered 3,000 people, they say, and phone records connect the house to members of the 9/11 conspiracy.

The FBI did initially suspect something was off when their agents descended on the Sarasota house shortly after the attacks, tipped off by suspicious neighbors who had always found the family aloof.

Investigators found signs that the occupants had left in a hurry. Food was left on the counter and the refrigerator was stocked. Toys were still floating in the backyard swimming pool. Dirty diapers were left in a bathroom. It also looked like the people who lived there weren’t coming back. The mail was piling up outside, and the door to an empty safe was wide open. Three cars remained parked in the garage and driveway.
The FBI later said it came up with reasonable answers to explain this odd behavior—but not until after the Tampa field office opened an investigation that claimed to find “numerous connections” between the family and the 9/11 hijackers.

The final answers about what really happened in Sarasota may lie somewhere in those 80,000 pages. To be sure, not all of them concern the FBI’s investigation of the Saudi family. The documents represent the entire case file of the 9/11 attacks at the Tampa field office. But some subset surely will reveal more about what the FBI knew, and when, and why it reached a different conclusion.

Former Republican Member of the 9/11 Commission, breaks dramatically with the Commission’s Leaders

Saudi officials were ‘supporting’ 9/11 hijackers, commission member says: [Via US News | The Guardian]

“There was an awful lot of participation by Saudi individuals in supporting the hijackers, and some of those people worked in the Saudi government,” Lehman said in an interview, suggesting that the commission may have made a mistake by not stating that explicitly in its final report. “Our report should never have been read as an exoneration of Saudi Arabia.”

He was critical of a statement released late last month by the former chairman and vice-chairman of the commission, who urged the Obama administration to be cautious about releasing the full congressional report on the Saudis and 9/11 – “the 28 pages”, as they are widely known in Washington – because they contained “raw, unvetted” material that might smear innocent people.

The 9/11 commission chairman, former Republican governor Tom Kean of New Jersey, and vice-chairman, former Democratic congressman Lee Hamilton of Indiana, praised Saudi Arabia as, overall, “an ally of the United States in combatting terrorism” and said the commission’s investigation, which came after the congressional report was written, had identified only one Saudi government official – a former diplomat in the Saudi consulate in Los Angeles – as being “implicated in the 9/11 plot investigation”.

The diplomat, Fahad al-Thumairy, who was deported from the US but was never charged with a crime, was suspected of involvement in a support network for two Saudi hijackers who had lived in San Diego the year before the attacks.

My prediction – we’ll slowly inch closer to the real story, but nothing will be revealed until all of the relevant actors are dead (politically or otherwise).

Our weasel politicians have been relying on the Saudis to fight our proxy wars against Russia and Iran. This had been ‘working’ well for the 1%, but the Syrian war and ISIS have brought about a proxy situation that’s so convoluted, we find ourselves confronting Russia directly.

This is part of an attempt to slowly weasel out of the proxy arrangement, to distance ourselves from the fast-disintegrating Saudis.

Wasting the Warrior Culture: The Story of Frank

Frank is exactly the kind of knuckle dragging gunslinger that you want at your side when everything goes to shit, you’re surrounded and you need someone to help you carve an emergency exit out of lead, broken bones and charred human flesh.

What Heraclitus didn’t mention is that this one warrior will most likely be pretty rough around the edges, probably won’t win any NCO of the quarter boards and certainly won’t know what to do with the second fork in a table setting.  We were willing to overlook some cosmetic defects while we were fighting a war on two fronts but now it appears that these violent and coarse warriors are unacceptable in our post-war, garrison focused military.  It seems that guys like Frank do not have a place in our modern Marine Corps.  We are putting down our scarred and battle weary war dogs and promoting porcelain dolls in their place.  Haircuts, close order drill and trouser creases now hold greater appeal to promotion boards than Purple Hearts, valor awards and combat experience.

Frank is one of the finest gunfighters that I have had the pleasure of going back to back with in my eleven years in the Marine Corps.  He always had a knack for being at the right place at the right time to apply his special recipe of aggression and violence that the scenario called for. He did it in Nasariyah back in 2003 and again during the battle of Fallujah.  Good old Frank racked up over 30 kills with his M40 in Fallujah and he only carried an M40 for the second half of the battle.  He didn’t even count the number of insurgents he destroyed while carrying his M249 piglet.  I have no idea how many people Frank has killed.  It’s a lot.  I know he killed well over thirty with me in Afghanistan and he favors counting his enemy dead with his boots rather than his scope if you get my meaning.

Frank, and hard men like him, are a rare and special breed but no one is immune to the stress and horror of war. Frank used alcohol as a mechanism to cope with unresolved mental stress stemming from four highly kinetic combat deployments to include the battles of Nasariyah and Fallujah. In April of 2008 Frank’s uncle, who raised him as his son, became terminally ill and died shortly after. This tragic event spurred him to drink more and significantly contributed to his receiving two alcohol related incidents in a span of two days.  He was charged with two violations of the Uniform Code of Military Justice Article 111 and was reduced in grade from Sergeant to Corporal. He was diagnosed with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and alcohol dependency and volunteered to attend a 45 day resident Substance Abuse Rehabilitation Clinic. He has been sober since his graduation from the program, continues to attend Alcoholics Anonymous meetings and has no further alcohol incidents.

What’s Next for the Crude Oil Mark in Iran? – Market Realist

On Tuesday, May 2, 2016, Iranian Oil Minister Bijan Zanganeh reported that Iran’s crude oil exports will triple their yearly amounts to South Korea. Iran will increase its crude oil production until it hits pre-sanction crude oil production levels of 4 MMbpd. This rise in crude oil production from Iran will add to the oversupplied market and will negatively affect crude oil prices. At the same time, low crude oil prices are driving oil producers to produce more to offset lower oil prices. (Read “How Are Oil Prices Squeezing OPEC Members’ Budgets?” to learn more.)

Multiyear low crude oil prices impact oil and gas producers like the National Iranian Oil Company, Oasis Petroleum (OAS), Energy XXI (EXXI), Triangle Petroleum (TPLM), QEP Resources (QEP), and Denbury Resources (DNR).

A Giant Lunar Leap For Private Enterprise – WSJ

… moon_shotprivate businesses may have the greatest incentive, and ability, to reach the moon. A company could set up a lunar outpost and pay for it by offering stays to government-funded researchers, commercial-lunar miners and even rich adventure-seekers pursuing the ultimate vacation. Such a firm could also sell rocket fuel to agencies and other entities sending ships or probes into deep space.

It could all be done for a reasonable price. A group of scientists, commercial entrepreneurs and visionaries concluded in the journal New Space that humans could return to the moon by 2022 for only $10 billion. New 3-D printing and waste recycling technology, along with robotics and commercial rockets, such as the SpaceX Falcon 9 and Falcon Heavy, have lowered the price tag to a fraction of what it took to land men on the moon decades ago.

Plenty of private companies also have leaders with the same drive that inspired the scientists who came before them. J.J. Abrams, the filmmaker best known for his remakes of space adventures like “Star Trek” and “Star Wars,” has produced a collection of mini-documentaries called “Moon Shot.” The Web series tells the story of a real-life effort aimed at the moon, the Google Lunar X Prize. Teams are competing to be the first to land a probe on the lunar surface by the end of 2017.

Another Oil Crash Is Coming, and There May Be No Recovery – Bloomberg

That’s the subject of the first installment of Bloomberg’s new animated web series Sooner Than You Think, which examines some of the biggest transformations in human history that haven’t happened quite yet. On Thursday, analysts at Bloomberg New Energy Finance weighed in with a comprehensive analysis of where the electric car industry is headed.
Even amid low gasoline prices last year, electric car sales jumped 60 percent worldwide. If that level of growth continues, the crash-triggering benchmark of 2 million barrels of reduced demand could come as early as 2023. That’s a crisis. The timing of new technologies is difficult to predict, but it may not be long before it becomes impossible to ignore.
