Lest we forget, the crisis in Fukushima, Japan, concerning its reactors and the fallout therefrom, is still ongoing, and so, it would seem, is the conspiracy theory manufacturing industry. Of course, there are the usual suspicions about the earthquake that supposedly triggered the tsunami being caused by HAARP or some similar technology, and indeed, I remain open to that theory. Then there are numerous variants of the deliberate destruction of the Fukushima plants by explosions, including small tactical nukes, an example of which is here:

Nuclear devices set-off Fukushima says ex U.S. official

I cannot help here but recall that similar (and in my opinion nonsensical theories) were advanced in the aftermath of the Oklahoma City Bombing by former FBI agent Ted Gunderson and my INSLAW-connected Michael Riconosciuto, who maintained that a small fuel-air device - the product of advanced technology in American's black projects attempting to engineer a "clean" hydrogen bomb incidentally - was what brought the Murrah building down.

But the idea of a tactical nuke here is ridiculous, since even a .1 kiloton device, a standard "small" tactical nuke, will do considerably more damage than what is seen at Fukushima at either the reactor 1 or reactor 3 buildings. A kiloton, let's remember, is the yield equivalent of 1000 TONS of TNT, that's 2,000,000 pounds of TNT, and thus, a 0.1 kiloton device would be a mere 200,000 pounds of TNT, or about eight of the gigantic 25,000 bunker busting WWII grand slam bombs the Allies used to attempt to destroy hardened German U-boat pens.

For this theory to be credible, the structures housing the reactors would be totally obliterated, and they are not. But there is indeed something fishy, as commentator and researcher Lew Rockwell points out:

Fukushima Unit 3: Steam-Explosion Theory

This is indeed a much more plausible model, though again, we are left scratching our heads and wondering how the Japanese, among the world's finest nuclear engineers, could have allowed such a disaster to proceed. The conspiracy theories out there only serve to obfuscate the issue, but the issue itself, that the explosions may have been deliberate, won't go away. But it should not surprise us, since similar efforts involving nano-thermite are now being advanced, in some very serious quarters in fact, to explain the "dustification" of the twin towers, and, indeed, there are those once again advocating exotic forms of "mini-nukes" as explanatory devices.  It is intriguing to me that, in both the Fukushima case and in the 9-11 case, those advocating such revised conspiracy theories, seem to have some sort of connection to the US government.

    Yes Citizen Quasar, How you can say it wasn’t a nuclear explosion at reactor 3 is probably a statement that you should probably not have said. It’s absolutely possible it was a bomb that exploded there. It surely was not a hydrogen explosion so what was it ,even Arnie Gunderson from Fairwinds stated it wasn’t a hydrgen explosion ,he has no reason to lie. The cover up at fukushima is criminal and a whole pile of people should be shot for that along with the people in the 9\11 cover up and it all points to the US government .Now I’m not saying it’s just them theres more involved guaranteed and I could probably guess who they are. Sad thing is theres nothing we can do about it why because the people are stupid ,spineless ,brain dead ,idiots that don’t stand up for anything, for christ sakes were as bad as the jews at auschwitz that walked to there death without a fight were doing about the samething . Just the way the elites of the world like it. It’s pathetic

    The idea of nukes being used at Fukushima would be too risky a simple way is to sabtage the reactors by shuting down some switchs or cutting some wires would do the job and blame it on bad magement which would be a better cover and those places are badly run anyway. By the way are you following Dark Matters:weird but true this last Wednesday they had a segment that tied a supposely suicide in NYC of a scientist and a French village that ate erget tainted bread which was really a CIA LSD EXPERMENTS in the 1950s that they carried out on unsuspecting test subjects this worthy of the Nazi medical expermints in the thirties and forties.

  3. Thomas Mattingly on September 23, 2011 at 2:06 am

    Hi, Joseph, MQ, HAL et al ~

    IF the Fukushima events were illicitly engineered to occur, then, as per the standard modus operandi of possibly-similar events (e.g., 9/11, 7/7 & 3/11-Madrid), we should expect ridiculous conspiracy disinfo hoaxers to obfuscate any good trail to the ‘Who’ & ‘How’ answers – either Wittingly, Semi-Wittingly, Unwittingly and/or Witlessly. Since I’m not addressing the ‘How’ question, I won’t speculate on which proponents of which hypotheses fit such categories.

    Let’s deal with the ‘Who’: What’s missing may be a Who-Benefits analysis. Given what has now occurred (i.e., nuclear energy industry further demonization & nuke energy usage declines), a logical ‘Who-Benefits’ culprit may well be the hydrocarbon industry (i.e., oil, gas & coal).

    Has the hydrocarbon industry and/or any specific hydrocarbon corporate group ever attempted to sabotage, destroy or retard nuclear energy development? Yes, Rockefeller oil interests did (at least) attempt to retard the development of nuclear energy in the 1970s. See Chapter 4 of “Black Gold, Hot Gold: The Rise of Fascism in the American Energy Business” at http://web.archive.org/web/20100820063627/http://brojon.org/frontpage/bj050701-4.html. Excerpt:

    “The new concept of taking another natural resource and turning it into energy with enough supply already currently mined and available to supply the world’s energy needs for the next 500 years, would have put all oil companies, including Standard, quickly out of business. Something needed to be done to counter that and fast.

    “Using the same technique as setting up and organizing the anti-war demonstrators to cover for the Vietnamese offshore oil surveys [by Rockefeller’s Standard Oil, using American B-52 bombs to seismically locate fertile oil fields in the South China Sea] and blaming the ‘war’ on the ‘military-industrial- complex’ — Standard organized the ‘environmentalist’ movements to shut down the development of nuclear power plants.”

    Oh, so a certain oil industry group has attempted to shut down nuclear energy development in the past, eh? Well, of course, these assertions, even IF true, do NOT mean that Rockefeller-type interests did in fact sabotage & destroy Japan’s Fukushima nuke generating facilities. However, the whole hydrocarbon industry (oil, gas & coal) IS benefitting significantly from the Fukushima events.

    In addition, the debt-money-based, scarcity mongers of the ‘Bankster’ new/old world order also benefited. If their (ancient) game has been & is the intentional creation of resource shortages to secure the monopoly of debt-money-based power, then destroying significant portions of a cheap energy industry fits such patterns. With cheap energy, development & distribution of our already-existing abundance of natural resources is both easy and cheap. Poverty would be obsolete; and monetary abundance & money (as we know it) may also soon become obsolete and/or irrelevant.

    IF in fact the ‘Banksters’ and/or the Oil Boys & Girls were the principal perps of the 9/11 before-during-&-after events, then the Fukushima effects & results may have been easy to orchestrate, engineer & perpetrate.

    Did the ‘Banksters’ and/or the Oil Boys & Girls have the Means, Motive & Opportunity to do both 9/11 and Fukushima? Yes (IMHO)! However: Proof that they did it? No, I don’t have it.

    P.S. MQ: Your Counterpunch article (“What TEPCO and the Media are Hiding” [by a Japanese nuclear expert] at http://www.counterpunch.org/2011/09/21/what-tepco-and-the-media-are-hiding) is both interesting and informative. However, when this Japanese nuke expert says that “…if the [Richter scale] magnitude is greater by a factor of 1.0, that means the energy is 32 times greater (2 to the fifth power: 2x2x2x2x2),” I began to question his credibility. The Richter earthquake seismic scale is logarithmic, which means that an increase on the scale of 1.0 means a tenfold increase in energy – NOT a 32-fold increase. See http://earthquake.usgs.gov/learn/topics/richter.php.

    HAL: Animals are not the only beings who can know when earthquakes are imminent. Humans can also do this. In the 1980s, Dr. Elizabeth Rauscher & Dr. William Van Bise invented & then patented earthquake prediction technology. What happened to this technology? USGS blackballed them in the USA; and USGS followed Rauscher & Van Bise to Greece, where USGS dissuaded the Greeks from buying & further developing this already-working earthquake prediction tech (used to predict the North Ridge quake, the Lomo Prieto quake, the Mount St. Helens eruption, the Landers quakes, etc.). Why would USGS & others suppress a working earthquake prediction technology? The only answer that makes sense, as per the inventors & others, may be that this technology differentiates between natural quakes and man-made quakes (in which there are no pre-quake ELF signatures). See http://www.EarthquakeWarning.org.

    Joseph: If there is credible proof that nanothermite or thermate can effect the requisite dustification witnessed on 9/11/01 et seq., I haven’t seen it. Link? IF so, then how do you account for so many intact sheets of paper flying all over Manhattan on 9/11 (while all but one of the WTC 50K+ file cabinets turned to dust)? If thermite & thermate are burning agents, why didn’t the paper burn?

    • HAL838 on September 23, 2011 at 7:49 am

      Yes, so I’ve heard awhile back.
      Some people also seem to be ‘sensitive’ to such things.

      The technology THEY own is not far removed from the
      “magic” of A C Clark (author & scientist) fame as he
      said; or so it would seem to the lesser sophisicated.

      The name of the GAME has always been ‘World Domination,’
      yet something has changed in their insanity and hurry to
      destroy the world although the tech can also reverse so much
      and bring us back to nature.

      I know what THEY are running from, but there is no space here
      and I have no time (or tome to write) to go into the science
      that they do NOT control.
      Some good scientists have already done the investigating.
      Since it was my goal before I had to leave college I do still
      read mostly science….and NOT off the web by [who?]

      No theories here my friend unless they are put forth by real science.

  4. ja on September 22, 2011 at 11:52 am

    I’m enjoying the conjecture regarding this particular event.. If Dr J. thinks that even small tactical nukes are still too big how big would a resonant energy weapon (one that would dissociate rigid materials as in the 911 vehicles) have to be.. mmmmmm camera size? http://www.jimstonefreelance.com/camera.jpg
    is a link to some jpegs of magna BSP’s camera and a small gun-type nuke..

  5. MQ on September 21, 2011 at 2:46 pm

    Interesting article via Counterpunch re Fukushima today:

    The author posits that the magnitude of the quake was lower than reported + other anomalies.

  6. HAL838 on September 21, 2011 at 8:28 am

    Many now know that what sends animals away from an impending
    earthquake is the EM field that precedes it.

    Creating an earthquake is (kind of) a simple reversing of
    the process if you have the tech, ionospheric heaters (HAARPs)
    of which there are now nearly 3 dozen all over the world and is
    our “Star Wars Cover” formed by three of them.

    Just about everything is now possible with the knowledge
    of Electromagnetics AND GRAVITICS; all part of Quantum Physics.
    You don’t even have to understand it, just engineer it into
    working ‘machines.’

    The worlds is yours.
    The only hitch is that understanding QM
    involves understanding that we are part of a Conscious, Living,
    Intelligent, or, as one scientist put it when studying what’s
    just around the corner; “Intentional Creation,” a ‘plan’ of sorts
    using that word
    for understanding he did not refer to Adam & Eve of Bible fame.

    There are no words for the truth and beauty—-
    utterly and absolutely AMAZING.
    Yet the only ‘idea’ that actually makes any sense.

    And how big is the Universe?
    As ‘big’ as a singularity, for it is in nothing that exists EVERYTHING !
    Some good books I could recommend, but still difficult for many
    to wrap their minds around. I consistently think in the abstract.
    So, not so difficult for me to comprehend.

    • HAL838 on September 21, 2011 at 9:21 pm

      Actually he said, “Intentional Design,” was what it seemed like to him.
      As so many astro/physics and astronomy/galactic cycles coming together
      never before seen even using the way-back software.

      He also was referring to the timing of so much wrong with
      humanity destroying its own home [planet].
      The cycles are both regular and irregular,
      but never all together.
      Until now !!!

    • HAL838 on September 23, 2011 at 7:54 am

      I’m sorry.
      If I am going to quote I should get it right, yes?
      This particular scientist called it, “Intentional Design”
      in a very apologetic and astounded manner.

      • HAL838 on September 23, 2011 at 8:02 am

        Since I already corrected myself and see
        that I need a break, I might as well ad that he said,
        “it seemed …like ……”

        Anyway a definate step forward in understanding
        the etremely large as well as the extremely small
        of QM and the “wave function.”

  7. Rbert Barricklow on September 20, 2011 at 5:13 pm

    Don’t forget the weapons of mass destruction, the derivatives, that were engineered, via ‘subprime loans’ to take down financial systems.
    Another good book, besides Babyon’s Banksters, is: Crisis By Design by John Truman Wolfe.
    Just thinking of many of the new exotic weapons, including the financial ones. These(earthquakes, financial meltdowns, hurricanes, etc.) are not ‘accidents’ but ‘managed pereceptions’ engineered by design.

  8. Ken Lemon on September 20, 2011 at 4:04 pm

    Dr Farrell:

    I refer to your Red Ice Radio interview titled “Black Op’s”. I think you nailed the whole earth/earthquack/911 “thesis” in one.

    It appears to me that something is in the making, maybe it’s just me, but the world is a train wreck at the moment, ie

    The train driver has the loco in reverse.
    The passengers are paying too much for the tickets.
    The guy collecting the tickets is pocketing the loot
    And the train is heading for a bridge that callapsed yesterday

    • Joseph P. Farrell on September 20, 2011 at 7:32 pm

      lol….good analogy Ken, and I tend to agree!!! But I think the conductors of said trains are in a whole lot of trouble, because the passengers are grumbling, and even some of the conductors realize they cannot get off the train.

      • LSM on September 20, 2011 at 2:18 pm

        Hi MQ,

        this corroborates fully with Benjamin Fulford’s latest posting (if one gives him credulity) about the Barakula Admin. allowing 2500 Jap elite troops into the US to protect Jap interests in the US (for whatever reason- is someone expecting something?)

  10. MQ on September 20, 2011 at 10:49 am

    Hmm, I had heard the theory that the nuke was buried in the seabed, which in turn created the earthquake/tsunami that took out the plant. Hadn’t heard that a nuke was detonated at the plants themselves. I guess having your diesel backup generators in the basement (to get flooded) wasn’t such a great idea. Honestly, once you breach containment, you don’t need some explosive to create problems, since this material will continue to burn thru darn near anything, and in turn poison all of the surroundings.
    The real crime is how utterly inept/ass-covering TEPCO personnel were (and still are).

    • Citizen Quasar on September 20, 2011 at 12:09 pm

      Now THAT would make sense. Below I was referring to a more local event.

  11. Citizen Quasar on September 20, 2011 at 8:23 am

    Thank you, Joseph, for pointing out that nuclear explosions have a MINIMUM amount of energy that they MUST give off for them to occur at all. Though not explicitly stated, they also have a minimum blast radius too and this is at least a city block if not much larger. I have not had my coffee yet so I am not up to crunching the numbers at this time. (It does have something to do with 1/(n^2) though. Or is it n^3?) Sip, ahhh. Sip, ahhh.

    I find that when people say that a nuclear blast did such and such, what they are counting on is for their listener to be as stupid and mis-informed about nuclear processes as they are themselves. This belies their imaginations in that they reveal that they cannot conceive of anyone actually knowing calculus and the like or maybe having just read a layman’s book or two on the subjct OR…having watched enuf TV to have picked up on the basic principles.

    When someone says that “nuclear explosives did it” this is meant to divorce causality from the Law of Identity (a Thing IS what a Thing IS) (and so a Thing ACTS like a Thing ACTS) and turn reality into a magic show in a haunted house. [Like Baptizing somebody but I am getting off topic if I mention that.] They are seeking to invoke the same “magic” that they invoke when someone uses the phrase “conspiracy thoery/ist” yet they are hoping that it will work in reverse.

    The whole concept is a no-brainer which leaves me with the unavoidable conclusion that people who adhere to such nonsense have…well…no brains.

    What DID happen at Fukushima? Hell, I don’t know.
