“Nuclear Heartland”, the book, was first published in 1988. It listed the locations of all land-based nuclear missile silos in the United States. John LaForge of Nukewatch updated and republished a 2015 report on the status of such land-based nuclear silos in the United States.

It was published to “Social Justice in the Heart of Berkeley” YouTube on March 29, 2017.

Since many of us had not heard that a historic vote in the UN General Assembly was coming up on Oct 27, 2016, we learned about it from John LaForge. The vote was overwhelming to make 2017 the year to push the Nuclear Non Proliferation Treaty forward through UN sponsored conferences: 123 In Favor; 38 Against; 16 Abstentions. The vote was something of an act of defiance toward the Security Council, and almost all nuclear-armed powers voted no, with some notable abstentions. The mainstream media buried the story as if it was not a significant event in human history!

The outcome of the upcoming Oct 27, 2017 UN General Assembly Vote for talks to move the NPT Treaty forward was presaged by John LaForge on Oct 13, 2016 in Berkeley. We include information of that vote with the advantage of releasing the video in late March 2017. The US, UK, and other nuclear powers boycotted the March 2017 conference. Did your media even cover the crucial talks to ban nuclear weapons from the Earth?

The next NPT UN conference is scheduled for July 2017! Make your country attend the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty talks about the signatory obligations and the need to press this issue vital to human survival forward. Remember that previous negotiations did lead to significant affirmed nuclear disarmament and a reduction of tensions.  This was moving forward until GW Bush unilaterally withdrew the US from the ABM Treaty with Russia! Making the Middle East a Nuclear Weapons Free Zone is one of the immediate priorities of the countries pressing forward and of many nuclear abolition activists of many nations.America-sends-nuclear-bombers-to-Russian-Borders_The-National-Interest

Cynthia Jean Johson welcomed everyone to Historic Fellowship Hall in Berkeley. Author-activist Cecile Pineda did the introduction of John LaForge of Nukewatch. BFUU Social Justice Committee activists Ingrid Kepler-May and James Beatty appear in the Q&A session. Ingrid Kepler-May is in the Q&A segment at around 49:10 of the 58 minute video. She is in a discussion with speaker John LaForge about the effects of US use of depleted uranium in weapons and armor, particularly how it contaminates the environment and causes birth defects in Iraqi babies. Ingrid witnessed these results first-hand on a visit to hospitals in Iraq. The 58 minutes video was made by Vic Sadot from an audio recording by David Yandle of a John LaForge NukeWatch Book Update presentation by John in Fellowship Hall, Berkeley, CA on Oct. 13, 2016. The event was sponsored by BFUU Social Justice Committee.

There are two a 6 minute excepted videos also posted at YouTube, one of Marion Küpker speaking about the German Peace movement, NATO, Russia, and the situation in Syria; one of the Q&A session with Ingrid Kepler-May talking about where the nuclear arms race is today and about the use of depleted uranium by the United States in weapons and war machinery armour, which when blasted to dust causes birth defects in children and cancers in others who come into contact with the radioactive dust.

It was a stunning and memorable update presentation by John LaForge to celebrate the 2015 re-publication of “Nuclear Heartland”! The book was first published in 1988 to let Americans know where the nuke silos are, and that they make you less secure in contradiction of the stated nuclear “deterrence” goal. This only becomes apparent after you understand the war profiteering and the unacceptable risks involved in nuclear radiation, and the climate of fear needed to promote the arms race.

Trump’s “Muslim Ban”Analyzed by Alison Weir, President of the Council for the National Interest

Trump’s “Muslim Ban”: Israeli Strategic Plans to “Remake the Middle East”, from 2001 and before, Targeted the Same Countries by Alison Weir, Founder/Director of IfAmericansKnewOrg, President of the Council for the National Interest, and author of “Against Our Better Judgment”. Posted February 13, 2017.

President Trump has issued an executive order suspending entry to the U.S for people from Iraq, Syria, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Iran, and Yemen (the order is called “Protecting the Nation From Foreign Terrorist Entry Into the United States”). These same countries were the focus of the “Visa Waiver Program Improvement and Terrorist Travel Prevention Act of 2015” under President Obama.
 
While reports on Trump’s ban emphasize that these are Muslim majority countries, analysts seem to have ignored another significant characteristic that these countries share.
 
With just a single exception, all of these countries were targeted for attack by certain top U.S. officials in 2001. In fact, that policy had roots that went back to 1996, 1991, 1980, and even the 1950s. Below, we will trace this policy back in time and examine its goals and proponents.
 
The fact is that Trump’s action continues policies influenced by people working on behalf of a foreign country, whose goal has been to destabilize and reshape an entire region. This kind of aggressive interventionism focused on “regime change” launches cascading effects that include escalating violence.
