The utility company that operated the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant in Japan — the one that went into triple meltdown after the enormous 2011 earthquake and tsunami — has released some jaw-dropping figures.
The radiation level in the containment vessel of reactor 2 has reached as high as 530 sieverts per hour, Tokyo Electric Power Co. — or Tepco, as it’s known — said last week. This far exceeds the previous high of 73 sieverts per hour recorded at the reactor following the March 2011 disaster.
That was the world’s worst nuclear disaster since the one at Chernobyl, in Ukraine, in 1986. Almost 16,000 people were killed along Japan’s northeastern coast in the tsunami, and 160,000 more lost their homes and livelihoods. The cleanup is taking much longer than expected.
At this level of radioactivity, a person could die from the briefest of exposures.
Tepco recorded the radiation near the reactor core, suggesting that some melted fuel had escaped, using a long, remote-controlled camera and radiation measurement device. It was the first time this kind of device has been able to get into this part of the reactor. There it found a three-foot-wide hole in a metal grate in the reactor’s primary containment vessel.
At this level of radiation, a robot would be able to operate for less than two hours before it was destroyed, Tepco said.
And Japan’s National Institute of Radiological Sciences said medical professionals had never even thought about encountering this level of radiation in their work.
According to the Kyodo news agency, the institute estimates that exposure to one sievert of radiation could lead to infertility, loss of hair and cataracts, while four sieverts would kill half the people exposed to it.
This measuring device hasn’t even gone into reactors 1 and 3 yet — that’s still in the works.
Fumiya Tanabe, a nuclear safety expert and former chief research scientist at the Japan Atomic Energy Research Institute, said while experts expected the radiation reading inside the Daiichi reactors to be high, it was still “shocking” to learn how high it was six years on.
“It will be very difficult to operate robots in there for a long time to come, and to remove the melted fuel. So the finding might greatly affect the decommissioning time schedule,” he said.
Over the past several days, the whistleblowing website Wikileaks has released a series of mysterious tweets on Twitter that are in the process of 'melting down' the internet as 'web sleuths' across the 'world wide web' attempt to figure out what the tweets are referring to with many people asking: "what does Wikileaks know that we don't know?"
Beginning on February 4th at 5:38 a.m., Wikileaks put out a tweet that simply asked "What Is #Vault7" within which they featured a photograph of the Svalbard Seed Vault lying in the snow on the Norwegian island of Spitsbergen as seen at the top of this story. Each day since then, Wikileaks has released another mysterious and cryptic tweet.
The Svalbard Seed Vault by the way is the biggest 'doomsday seed vault' in the world, holding more than 500,000 different samples in what is also considered the most diverse seed vault in the world.
Interestingly, the tweets released by Wikileaks also followed the "Five W's" often used in investigative journalism and police investigations. According to the principle of the Five Ws, a report can only be considered complete if it answers these questions starting with an interrogative word. What? Who? Where? When? And Why?
On February 5th at 1:58 a.m. Wikileaks put out another tweet which simply asked "Where Is #Vault7" which contained the photographseen above of a Nazi gold stored in the Merkers Salt Mine, discovered by the US Army in 1945. According to the National Archives, the mine contained gold bullion, gold Reichsmarks, British gold pounds, French gold francs, American gold pieces, gold and silver coins, additional foreign currency, silver bars, platinum bars, artwork, and more.
On February 6th at 4:33 a.m., Wikileaks put out another tweet asking "When Is #Vault7?" which showed the photograph seen below of a jet engine test taking place at Langley Air Force Base in Virginia which shows a test being run upon a Pratt and Whitney F119-PW-100 jet engine. These 'soundproof hush houses' are sometimes called “vaults.”
On February 7th at 3:52 a.m. Wikileaks put out a tweet asking "Who Is #Vault7" showing photographs of '3 infamous spies', Bradley Manning, Julian Assange and Edward Snowden, within posters made up of them by the US government.
With the 'Infamous Spies' headlines looking almost like the headlines of some ridiculous tabloid newspapers, might 'Vault 7' refer to upcoming bombshell Wikileaks revelations which they've promised to bring us in 2017?
Finally just a short time ago on February 8th, Wikileaks has just put out another tweet which asks "Why Is #Vault7?" which shows the photograph seen below taken back in February of 2013 taken at the Whiteman Air Force Base In Missouri that was seen in an article called "Keeping Structures Strong" and shows Staff Sgt. Adam Boyd, a 509th Civil Engineer Squadron structural supervisor, welding a box blade for a snow plow. That story begins as such:
As Mother Nature's resources naturally break down with time, so does the infrastructure on base. Buildings age, pipes wear down and other vital assets require replacement.
This creates a balancing act for unit facility managers as they try to perform their primary duties and juggle the multiple issues that make buildings seem as if they are constantly falling apart, said Staff Sgt. Adam Boyd, 509th CES structural supervisor.
"Everything you see on base is constantly aging," Boyd said. "Part of our job is to fight the aging process, to keep the buildings looking as new as possible."
Without the structures shop, the entire base would decay, said Boyd.
It was not lost on some that the photograph appears to show steel being melted, what some other Twitter commenters believed may allude to the melting of steel on 9/11 in New York city.
What are all of these cryptic and mysterious Wikileaks tweets about? Back on February 1st, only days prior to the beginning of the cryptic tweets, Wikileaks released the tweet seen below teasing a pending publication and an 'insurance file'. So, what does Wikileaks know that we don't know? Several new videos below take a look at 'Vault 7' and what these mysterious tweets put out by Wikileaks this week might mean.
We also should remember that back on December 31st of 2016, Wikileaks put out a tweet which stated: "If you thought 2016 was a big WikiLeaks year 2017 will blow you away. Help us prepare for the showdown." What 'showdown' was Wikileaks referring to? And, is America about to get another massive dose of truth?
We Are Change reports: An anonymous account named “AnonScan” gave their input, tweeting out even more cryptic material and a riddle with several videos, including a video that shows Julian Assange calling the U.S. government, and warning the U.S. State Dept. of a massive un-redacted cable leak that isn’t from them.
The video ends with “it’s time,” an echoed term that has previously been tweeted by Snowden as well. The group’s riddle, “the answer is there right in front of you, if you know the alphabet Google is your friend.. or maybe not.” You can see that videoof the phone call made to the US State Dept as the final video below, a video within which AnonScan make a mysterious reference to February 19th. What's supposed to happen on February 19th?
Interestingly, in the phone call that Assange made to the US State Department in 2011 he stated "I'll try to make this clear....we don't have a problem...you have a problem." So what does Wikileaks know that the American people don't know and why is February 19th of 'great importance' to AnonScan, who made the video seen within it?
The levels at which China appears to be planning a missile attack on US military bases in the Pacific have been detailed in a new report.
An investigation of satellite imagery comparing China's missile testing grounds and US military bases shows a pattern - all of the missile tests have been aimed at destroying US carriers, destroyers and airfields in East Asia, the report said.
The images show that the test areas have been designed to look like the military bases, according to the report by Thomas Shugart on War on the Rocks.
Earlier this week, a highly accurate Chinese ballistic missile capable of threatening US and Japan bases in Asia made its latest appearance at recent Rocket Force drills.
Israel, in the opinion of most of us who write, teach, broadcast and pontificate on the last days from the Pre-Trib perspective, is the number one signal that gives indication of where this generation stands on God’s prophetic timeline. It is among the very tiniest of countries, yet no nation in history has ever drawn the attention of the whole world, as does that little Jewish state.
Lest you think that is an overreach, I remind that at no time in history has the world had the global, instantaneous news coverage, as has been the case since Israel’s rebirth into modernity in 1948. That fact, alone, has made Israel the focus of interest. Add to the 24/7 coverage of the never-sleeping-media conglomerate today, the petroleum that drives the machinery of the world and the prospects for all-out-war in the region at any moment, and Israel as a focal point becomes all the more riveting.
In my presentations on Bible prophecy, I can’t help but always say something like: “No matter which way the microphones and cameras of the world’s news media turn to catch other issues and events, they always end-up focused again on Israel and upon Jerusalem, in particular. As a matter-of-fact, there are cameras that have the Temple Mount live via satellite at all times, for everyone on the planet to view.”
We have witnessed over the past decades, the many secretaries of state for the United States shuttle back and forth to that most volatile region of the world in search of peace. From Henry Kissinger to Hillary Clinton, to John Kerry, to now President Donald Trump’s choice for secretary of state, the quest never ceases. There is one incessant cry that rings in the ears of everyone who has the ability to receive newscasts by the world’s media. It is the call for peace and security by the world’s leaders.
Here are some examples in recent times:
George W. Bush, Address to the Nation, September 11, 2001: “America and our friends and allies join with all those who want peace and security in the world, and we stand together to win the war against terrorism.”
George W. Bush, Rose Garden Speech on April 4, 2002: “Israel has recognized the goal of a Palestinian state. The outlines of a just settlement are clear: two states, Israel and Palestine, living side by side, in peace and security.”
President Vladimir Putin, Joint Statement with President George W. Bush, May 24, 2002. Taking this as their basis: “Russia and the USA intend to exert maximum efforts in order to realize this vision of a negotiated settlement of the conflict, which includes the existence of two states – Israel and Palestine – living in peace and security within recognized borders.”
Meeting between Prime Minister Tony Blair and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. January 28, 2013: “It is up to us to work for peace and security, and no one is more fitting to work on this than you,” he said (Netanyahu). Blair replied, “I look forward to working with you on matters of peace and security. We have many challenges, but I’m sure they can be overcome with good will and hard work.”
Condoleezza Rice, American Jewish Committee’s 96th Annual Meeting, 2002: “On April 4, President Bush articulated a vision of two states, Israel and Palestine, living side by side in peace and security.”
Hillary Clinton, November 30, 2012 address in Washington: “America supports the goal of a Palestinian state, living side by side in peace and security with Israel.”
President Barack Obama, Jerusalem International Convention Center, Jerusalem. March 21, 2013: “I’d like to focus on how we — and when I say “we,” in particular young people — can work together to make progress in three areas that will define our times — security, peace and prosperity. … First, peace is necessary. I believe that. I believe that peace is the only path to true security.”
The apostle Paul, as prophet, wrote the following:
For when they shall say, peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape (1 Thessalonians 5:3).
The Greek word for “safety” here is “asphaleia.” It is a feminine noun meaning: security from enemies and dangers, safety.
In the preceding verse Paul had just foretold of the moment when the time of the Tribulation would begin breaking on a world ripe for God’s judgment.
“For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night” (1 Thessalonians 5: 2).
The rant we hear most prolifically today, with regard to the nation Israel, the city of Jerusalem, and the ongoing peace process in the Middle East is, “peace and security.” I could have added hundreds more such quotes.
Listen during the upcoming days for this cry from the diplomats of the world who will not have the God of Heaven rule over them (Read Psalms chapter 2 again.) It is a rant that pinpoints precisely just how near is the thief in the night moment that Paul forewarned─the Rapture.
