He has been taking measurements from air filters in Tokyo..and finding radiation reading that are more than 1,000 times higher than at peak of fallout from nuclear weapons testing.. 


The government of Japan is focusing on taking away radiation testing meters from residents,

covering up what is really happening and not testing anything, unless they are forced to due to shaming from outside experts coming in and doing testing, and then announcing it in public. 


Fukushima according to the government (if we can believe a word they are saying) is releasing at least 10 to the power of 13 Bequerels PER HOUR of radiation, 24 HOURS A DAY. This is going around the whole world, affecting everyone.

It might seem hyperbolic to say that Republicans have declared a war on women.

Sadly, it's not.

Just take a look at the top 10 shocking, crazy things Republicans have proposed in recent weeks. If you think this constitutes a war on women, please share this email far and wide—forward it, and post it on Facebook and Twitter

I wish I could say these were the only examples of the Republican war on women. But it's just a sampling, and more is sure to come—unless we raise a ruckus and call them out. So please, share this email today.

Thanks,

Kat

Top 10 Shocking Attacks from the GOP War on Women 

1) Republicans not only want to reduce women's access to abortion care, they're actually trying to redefine rape. After a major backlash, they promised to stop. But they haven't.

2) A state legislator in Georgia wants to change the legal term for victims of rape, stalking, and domestic violence to "accuser." But victims of other less gendered crimes, like burglary, would remain "victims."

3) In South Dakota, Republicans proposed a bill that could make it legal to murder a doctor who provides abortion care. (Yep, for real.)

4) Republicans want to cut nearly a billion dollars of food and other aid to low-income pregnant women, mothers, babies, and kids. 

5) In Congress, Republicans have proposed a bill that would let hospitals allow a woman to die rather than perform an abortion necessary to save her life. 

6) Maryland Republicans ended all county money for a low-income kids' preschool program. Why? No need, they said. Women should really be home with the kids, not out working. 

7) And at the federal level, Republicans want to cut that same program, Head Start, by $1 billion. That means over 200,000 kids could lose their spots in preschool.

8) Two-thirds of the elderly poor are women, and Republicans are taking aim at them too. A spending bill would cut funding for employment services, meals, and housing for senior citizens.

9) Congress voted yesterday on a Republican amendment to cut all federal funding from Planned Parenthood health centers, one of the most trusted providers of basic health care and family planning in our country. 

10) And if that wasn't enough, Republicans are pushing to eliminate all funds for the only federal family planning program. (For humans. But Republican Dan Burton has a bill to provide contraception for wild horses. You can't make this stuff up).

At Stake - Latest Updates from the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee


Watch Barney Frank
Sarah Palin and the right wing fringe may be trying to scare Americans with talk of health care 'death panels' that don't actually exist but thanks to you, their baseless lies are being exposed and their offensive hate-speech is being forcefully smacked. 

Check out the video of Chairman Barney Frank's scathing response to one town hall protester's 'vile contemptible nonsense' comparing President Obama's health insurance reform plan to Nazi policies. 

To show you all the other ways that you're continuing to help President Obama win the fight for health insurance reform, we wanted to bring you the next edition of @ Stake.

Republicans Lie, You Respond
 
Thanks to you, our Health Care Emergency Response is holding Sarah, Rush, Newt, and their special interest friends accountable for the non-stop lying and fear-mongering. 

After Rush Limbaugh openly compared the Democratic Party to Nazis and put swastikas on his website, 50,000 of you hit back hard by signing our petition. We can't thank you enough for holding Rush accountable for his revolting hate speech.

Here are just some of the other ways that you've responded to the GOP's lies and fear mongering:

Health Care ER
  • Over 30,000 health care fact check cards downloaded and forwarded to friends and family.
  • Thousands of letters to the editor written exposing Republican lies and supporting President Obama's plans for health insurance reform.
  • Radio ads and automated phone calls hitting more than two dozen House Republicans, thanks to your generous financial support.
Keep the pressure on. Visit the DCCC's Grassroots Health Care ER Action Center to download your fact check card, sign up for Mobile Alerts, write a letter to the editor, and learn all the other ways that you can get involved. 

Heard Around Town: Latest Republican Outrages on Health Care

The debate over health insurance reform needs a strong dose of civility and fast.  Here are some of the GOP's latest and most outrageous:

Help us stand strong against their despicable attacks.  Sign our petition voicing your support for health insurance reform today and make sure to share it with friends and family.

With Congress soon returning to finish the battle over health insurance reform, stay tuned for future editions of @ Stake for more ways to get involved and all the latest breaking news about how you're helping President Obama win this fight for all Americans.

Thanks again for all of your incredible grassroots support,

Jon Vogel

----------------------------

In my view the FTC should ban all hate speech that promotes violence. . There are peaceful solutions 

Why promote assassination, poisoning, hangings, etc? This is what starts genocide, 

witch burnings, and other hate filled violence. We are better than that as a country... 


Freedom to say whatever you want does not include inciting murder, riots, etc...
