DERAILED IN D.C.: “BOMB TRAINS,” POISON TRACKS AND MY CHEMICAL EXPOSURE...

May 10, 2016 Posted by

[Translate]   Richard Eskow  AMERICANS FOR A SAFE FUTURE A CSX freight train derailed in Washington, D.C. last week. The Washington Post reported that ethanol, which is colorless and highly flammable, was leaking out of one of the overturned cars in the accident’s immediate aftermath. The 14-car derailment also “spilled half the liquid contents of a 15,500-gallon tanker” filled with a sodium hydroxide onto the ground beside the Rhode Island Avenue Metro Station. That’s nearly 8,000 gallons of something the Post describes as a “highly caustic chemical.” Sodium hydroxide is also known as “lye.” If that name sounds more familiar, perhaps it’s because killers often use it to dissolve their victims’ bodies on TV crime shows. It has also been used by a host of real-life murderers, including Mexican drug cartel assassins and the...

Just for some perspective, that’s about the same number of Americans who say they have trust in Congress, which is about 4 percent. It’s up for debate whether that reflects worse on Congress or the media, but one thing is clear: The US public’s almost total distrust of the press isn’t going away anytime soon. Public approval of the media has been declining for decades, and, according to some polls, has now...

I polled a number of journalists and scholars, and there was a broad (though not universal) view that we in the media screwed up.

The Sloan Foundation is so named from Alfred P. Sloan, a Nazi collaborator and eugenics depopulation promoter.

What led me to connect the dots on this is a short piece from Celia Farber of The Turth Barrier, who originally noticed the Sloan Foundation link. As admitted on...

He isn’t just winning; he’s winning with stunning percentages: Alaska 82-18; Hawaii 70-30; Washington 73-27. He’s taken five of six in the West, and chipped away Clinton’s lead in pledged delegates, trailing in pledged delegates by 1243 to 975. The Clinton campaign, echoed by the talking heads, sought to discount the victories as “expected” from the “largely white and liberal” Pacific northwest.
