Wars & food, e.coli as a weapon to kill millions.



Scientists from Germany’s Robert Koch Institute have turned up strong forensic genetic evidence that supports the likelihood of Europe’s e.coli superbug having been bioengineered in a lab during years, tested in Korea already in 2005, by the U.S. Army in its laboratory facility in Ft. Detrick, Maryland.

It appears that someone has figured out a new way to turn food into weapons, e.coli outbreak is a deliberate act of biological warfare against innocent people to reduce world population.
Startling revelations from a Swiss banking insider
(interview with a Swiss banker done in Moscow 30.05.2011)
Q: Can you tell us something about your involvement in the Swiss banking business?
A: I have worked for Swiss banks for many years. I was designated as one of the top directors of one of the biggest Swiss banks. During my work I was involved in the payment, in the direct payment in cash to a person who killed the president of a foreign country. I was in the meeting where it was decided to give this cash money to the killer. This gave me dramatic headaches and troubled my conscience. It was not the only case that was really bad but it was the worst.
It was a payment instruction on order of a foreign secret service written by hand giving the order to pay a certain amount to a person who killed the top leader of a foreign country. And it was not the only case. We received several such hand written letters coming from foreign secret services giving the order to payout cash from secret accounts to fund revolutions or for the killing of people. I can confirm what John Perkins has written in his book “Confessions of an Economic Hit Man”. There really exists just a system and Swiss banks are involved in such cases.
Q: Perkins book is also translated and available in Russian. Can you tell us which bank it is and who was responsible?
A: It was one of the top three Swiss banks at that time and it was the president of a country in the third world. But I don’t want to give out to many details because they will find me very easily if I say the name of the president and the name of the bank. I will risk my life.
Q: You can’t name any person in the bank either?
A: No I can’t, but I can assure you this happened. We were several persons in the meeting room. The person in charge of the physical payment of the cash came to us and asked us if he is allowed to payout such a big amount in cash to that person and one of the directors explained the case and all others said ok you can do it.
Q: Did this happened often? Was this kind of a slush fund?
A: Yes. This was a special fund managed in a special place in the bank were all the coded letters came in from abroad. The most important letters were hand written. We had to decipher them and in them was the order to pay a certain amount of cash from accounts for the assassination of people, funding revolutions, funding strikes, funding all sorts of parties. I know that certain people who are Bilderbergers were involved in such orders. I mean they gave the orders to kill.
Q: Can you tell us in what year or decade this happened?
A: I prefer not to give you the precise year but it was in the 80’s.
Q: Did you have a problem with this work?
A: Yes, a very big problem. I could not sleep for many days and after a while I left the bank. If I give you too many details they will trace me. Several secret services from abroad, mostly English speaking, gave orders to fund illegal acts, even the killing of people thru Swiss banks. We had to pay on the instructions of foreign powers for the killing of persons who did not follow the orders of Bilderberg or the IMF or the World Bank for example.
Q: This is a very startling revelation that you are making. Why do you feel the urge to say this now?
A: Because Bilderberg is meeting in Switzerland. Because the world situation is getting worse and worse. And because the biggest banks in Switzerland are involved in unethical activities. Most of these operations are outside the balance sheet. It is a multiple of what is officially declared. Its not audited and happening without any taxes. The figures involved have a lot of zeros. Its huge amounts.
Q: So its billions?
A: Its much more, its trillions, completely unaudited, illegal and besides the tax system. Basically it’s a robbery of everybody. I mean most normal people are paying taxes and abiding by the laws. What is happening here is complete against our Swiss values, like neutrality, honesty and good faith. In the meetings I was involved in, the discussions where completely against our democratic principles. You see, most of the directors of Swiss banks are not locals anymore, they are foreigners, mostly Anglo-Saxon, either American or British, they don’t respect our neutrality, they don’t respect our values, they are against our direct democracy, they just use the Swiss banks for their illegal means.
They use huge amounts of money created out of nothing and they destroy our society and destroy the people world wide just for greed. They seek power and destroy whole countries, like Greece, Spain, Portugal or Ireland and Switzerland will be one of the last in line. And they use China as working slaves. And a person like Josef Ackermann, who is a Swiss citizen, is the top man at a German bank and he uses his power for greed and does not respect the common people. He has quite a few legal cases in Germany and also now in the States. He is a Bilderberger and does not care about Switzerland or any other country.
Q: Are you saying, some of these people that you mention will be at the up-coming Bilderberg meeting in June in St. Moritz?
A: Yes.
Q: So they are currently in a position of power?
A: Yes. They have huge amounts of money available and use it to destroy whole countries. They destroy our industry and build it up in China. On the other hand they opened up the gates in Europe for all Chinese products. The working population of Europe is earning less and less. The real aim is to destroy Europe.
Q: Do you think that the Bilderberg meeting in St. Moritz has symbolic value? Because in 2009 they where in Greece, 2010 in Spain and look what happened to them. Does this mean Switzerland can expect something bad?
A: Yes. Switzerland is one of the most important countries for them, because there is so much capital here. They are meeting there because apart from other things they want to destroy all values that Switzerland stands for. You see it’s an obstacle for them, not being in the EU or Euro, not totally controlled by Brussels and so on. Regarding values I am not talking about the big Swiss banks, because they are not Swiss anymore, most of them are lead by Americans. I am talking about the real Swiss spirit that the common people cherish and hold up.
Sure it has symbolic value, as you said, regarding Greece and Spain. Their aim is to be a kind of exclusive elite club that has all the power and everybody else is impoverished and down.
Q: Do you think that the aim of Bilderberg is to create a kind of global dictatorship, controlled by the big global corporations, were there are no sovereign states anymore?
A: Yes and Switzerland is the only place left with direct democracy and its in their way. They use the blackmail of “too big to fail” as in the case of UBS to put our country in big debt, just like they did with many other countries. In the end maybe they want to do with Switzerland what they did with Iceland, with all the banks and the country bankrupt.
Q: And also bring it in to the EU?
A: Of course. The EU is under the iron grip of Bilderberg.
Q: What do you think could stop this plan?
A: Well that’s the reason I speak to you. Its truth. Truth is the only way. Put a light on this situation, expose them. They don’t like to be in the spotlight. We have to create transparency in the banking industry and in all levels of society.
Q: What you are saying is, there is a correct side to the Swiss banking business and there are a few big banks that are misusing the financial system for their illegal activities.
A: Yes. The big banks are training their staff with Anglo-Saxon values. They are training them to be greedy and ruthless. And greed is destroying Switzerland and everybody else. As a country we have a majority of the most correct operating banks in the world, if you look at the small and midsize banks. Its just the big ones who operate globally that are a problem. They are not Swiss anymore and don’t consider themselves as such.
Q: Do you think it is a good thing that people are exposing Bilderberg and showing who they really are?
A: I think the Strauss-Kahn case is a good chance for us, because it shows these people are corrupt, sick in their minds, so sick they are full of vices and those vices are kept under wraps on their orders. Some of them like Strauss-Kahn rape women, others are sado maso, or paedophile and many are into Satanism. When you go in some banks you see these satanistic symbols, like in the Rothschild Bank in Zurich. These people are controlled by black-mail because of the weaknesses they have. They have to follow orders or they will be exposed, they will be destroyed or even killed. The reputation of Strauss-Kahn is not only killed in the mass media, he could be killed also literally.
Q: Since Ackermann is in the steering committee of Bilderberg, do you think he is a big decision maker there?
A: Yes. But there are many others, like Lagarde, wo will probably be the next IMF head, also a member of Bilderberg, then Sarkozy and Obama. They have a new plan to censor the internet, because the internet is still free. They want to control it and use terrorism or what ever as a reason. They could even plan something horrible so that they have an excuse.
Q: So that is your fear?
A: Its not only a fear, I am certain of it. As I said, they gave orders to kill, so they are capable of terrible things. If they have the feeling they are losing control, like the uprising now in Greece and Spain and maybe Italy will be next, then they can do another Gladio. I was close to the Gladio network. As you know they instigated terrorism paid by American money to control the political system in Italy and other European countries. Regarding the murder of Aldo Moro, the payment was done thru the same system as I told you about.
Q: Was Ackermann part of this payment system at a Swiss bank?
A: (S m i l e) … you are the journalist. Look at his career and how fast he made it to the top.
Q: What do you think can be done to hinder them?
A: Well there are many good books out there that explain the background and connect the dots, like the one I mentioned by Perkins. These people really have hit men that get paid to kill. Some of them get their money thru Swiss banks. But not only, they have a system set up all over the world. And to expose to the public these people that are prepared to do anything to keep control. And I mean anything.
Q: Thru exposure we could stop them?
A: Yes, telling the truth. We are confronted with really ruthless criminals, also big war criminals. Its worse then genocide. They are ready and able to kill millions of people just to stay in power and in control.
Q: Can you explain from your view, why the mass media in the west is more or less completely silent regarding Bilderberg?
A: Because there is an agreement between them and the owners of the media. You don’t talk about it. They buy them. Also some of the top media figures are invited to the meetings but are told not to report anything they see and hear.
Q: In the structure of Bilderberg, is there an inner circle that knows the plans and then there is the majority who just follow orders?
A: Yes. You have the inner circle who are into Satanism and then there are the naive or less informed people. Some people even think they are doing something good, the outer circle.
Q: According to exposed documents and own statements, Bilderberg decided back in 1955 to create the EU and the Euro, so they made important and far reaching decisions.
A: Yes and you know that Bilderberg was founded by Prince Bernard, a former member of the SS and Nazi party and he also worked for IG Farben, who’s subsidiary produced Zyklon B. The other guy was the head of Occidental Petroleum who had close relations to the communists in the Sowjetunion. They worked both sides but really these people are fascists who want to control everything and everybody and who gets in their way is removed.
Q: Is the payment system you explained outside of normal operations, compartmentalized and in secret?
A: In those Swiss banks the normal employees don’t know this is happening. Its like an own secret department in the bank. As I said these operations are outside of the balance sheet, with no supervision. Some are situated in the same building, others are outside. They have their own security and special area where only authorized people can enter.
Q: How do they keep these transactions out of the international Swift system?
A: Well some of the Clearstream listings where true in the beginning. They just included fake names to make people believe the whole list is fake. You see they also make mistakes. The first list was true and you can trace a lot of things. You see, there are people around that discover irregularities and the truth and they tell it. Afterwards of course there are law suits and these people are forced to shut up.
The best way to stop them is to tell the truth, put the spot light on them. If we don’t stop them we will end up as their slaves.
Q: Thanks you for this interview.

They are ready and able to kill millions of people just to stay in power and in control.
Even as the veggie blame game is now under way across the EU, where a super resistant strain of e.coli is sickening patients and filling hospitals in Germany, virtually no one is talking about how e.coli could have magically become resistant to eight different classes of antibiotic drugs and then suddenly appeared in the food supply.
This particular e.coli variation is a member of the O104 strain, and O104 strains are almost never (normally) resistant to antibiotics. In order for them to acquire this resistance, they must be repeatedly exposed to antibiotics in order to provide the “mutation pressure” that nudges them toward complete drug immunity.
So if you’re curious about the origins of such a strain, you can essentially reverse engineer the genetic code of the e.coli and determine fairly accurately which antibiotics it was exposed to during its development. This step has now been done (see below), and when you look at the genetic decoding of this O104 strain now threatening food consumers across the EU, a fascinating picture emerges of how it must have come into existence.
The genetic code reveals the history
When scientists at Germany’s Robert Koch Institute decoded the genetic makeup of the O104 strain, they found it to be resistant to all the following classes and combinations of antibiotics:
• penicillins
• tetracycline
• nalidixic acid
• trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazol
• cephalosporins
• amoxicillin / clavulanic acid
• piperacillin-sulbactam
• piperacillin-tazobactam
In addition, this O104 strain posses an ability to produce special enzymes that give it what might be called “bacteria superpowers” known technically as ESBLs:
“Extended-Spectrum Beta-Lactamases (ESBLs) are enzymes that can be produced by bacteria making them resistant to cephalosporins e.g. cefuroxime, cefotaxime and ceftazidime – which are the most widely used antibiotics in many hospitals,” explains the Health Protection Agency in the UK (http://www.hpa.org.uk/Topics/Infect…).
On top of that, this O104 strain possesses two genes — TEM-1 and CTX-M-15 — that “have been making doctors shudder since the 1990s,” reports The Guardian (http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentis…). And why do they make doctors shudder? Because they’re so deadly that many people infected with such bacteria experience critical organ failure and simply die.
Bioengineering a deadly superbug
So how, exactly, does a bacterial strain come into existence that’s resistant to over a dozen antibiotics in eight different drug classes and features two deadly gene mutations plus ESBL enzyme capabilities?
There’s really only one way this happens (and only one way) — you have to expose this strain of e.coli to all eight classes of antibiotics drugs. Usually this isn’t done at the same time, of course: You first expose it to penicillin and find the surviving colonies which are resistant to penicillin. You then take those surviving colonies and expose them to tetracycline. The surviving colonies are now resistant to both penicillin and tetracycline. You then expose them to a sulfa drug and collect the surviving colonies from that, and so on. It is a process of genetic selection done in a laboratory with a desired outcome. This is essentially how some bioweapons are engineered by the U.S. Army in its laboratory facility in Ft. Detrick, Maryland (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nation…).
Although the actual process is more complicated than this, the upshot is that creating a strain of e.coli that’s resistant to eight classes of antibiotics requires repeated, sustained expose to those antibiotics. It is virtually impossible to imagine how this could happen all by itself in the natural world. For example, if this bacteria originated in the food (as we’ve been told), then where did it acquire all this antibiotic resistance given the fact that antibiotics are not used in vegetables?
When considering the genetic evidence that now confronts us, it is difficult to imagine how this could happen “in the wild.” While resistance to a single antibiotic is common, the creation of a strain of e.coli that’s resistant to eight different classes of antibiotics — in combination — simply defies the laws of genetic permutation and combination in the wild. Simply put, this superbug e.coli strain could not have been created in the wild. And that leaves only one explanation for where it really came from: the lab.
Engineered and then released into the wild
The evidence now points to this deadly strain of e.coli being engineered and then either being released into the food supply or somehow escaping from a lab and entering the food supply inadvertently. If you disagree with that conclusion — and you’re certainly welcome to — then you are forced to conclude that this octobiotic superbug (immune to eight classes of antibiotics) developed randomly on its own… and that conclusion is far scarier than the “bioengineered” explanation because it means octobiotic superbugs can simply appear anywhere at any time without cause. That would be quite an exotic theory indeed.
My conclusion actually makes more sense: This strain of e.coli was almost certainly engineered and then released into the food supply for a specific purpose. What would that purpose be? It’s obvious, I hope.
It’s all problem, reaction, solution at work here. First cause a PROBLEM (a deadly strain of e.coli in the food supply). Then wait for the public REACTION (huge outcry as the population is terrorized by e.coli). In response to that, enact your desired SOLUTION (total control over the global food supply and the outlawing of raw sprouts, raw milk and raw vegetables).
That’s what this is all about, of course. The FDA relied on the same phenomenon in the USA when pushing for its recent “Food Safety Modernization Act” which essentially outlaws small family organic farms unless they lick the boots of FDA regulators. The FDA was able to crush farm freedom in America by piggybacking on the widespread fear that followed e.coli outbreaks in the U.S. food supply. When people are afraid, remember, it’s not difficult to get them to agree to almost any level of regulatory tyranny. And making people afraid of their food is a simple matter… a few government press releases emailed to the mainstream media news affiliates is all it takes.
First ban the natural medicine, then attack the food supply
Now, remember: All this is happening on the heels of the EU ban on medicinal herbs and nutritional supplements — a ban that blatantly outlaws nutritional therapies that help keep people healthy and free from disease. Now that all these herbs and supplements are outlawed, the next step is to make people afraid of fresh food, too. That’s because fresh vegetables are medicinal, and as long as the public has the right to buy fresh vegetables, they can always prevent disease.
But if you can make people AFRAID of fresh vegetables — or even outlaw them altogether — then you can force the entire population onto a diet of dead foods and processed foods that promote degenerative disease and bolster the profits of the powerful drug companies.
It’s all part of the same agenda, you see: Keep people sick, deny them access to healing herbs and supplements, then profit from their suffering at the hands of the global drug cartels.
GMOs play a similar role in all this, of course: They’re designed to contaminate the food supply with genetic code that causes widespread infertility among human beings. And those who are somehow able to reproduce after exposure to GMOs still suffer from degenerative disease that enriches the drug companies from “treatment.”
Do you recall which country was targeted in this recent e.coli scare? Spain. Why Spain? You may recall that leaked cables from Wikileaks revealed that Spain resisted the introduction of GMOs into its agricultural system, even as the U.S. government covertly threatened political retaliation for its resistance. This false blaming of Spain for the e.coli deaths is probably retaliation for Spain’s unwillingness to jump on the GMO bandwagon. (http://www.naturalnews.com/030828_G...)
That’s the real story behind the economic devastation of Spain’s vegetable farmers. It’s one of the subplots being pursued alongside this e.coli superbug scheme.
Food as weapons of war – created by Big Pharma?
By the way, the most likely explanation of where this strain of e.coli was bioengineered is that the drug giants came up with it in their own labs. Who else has access to all the antibiotics and equipment needed to manage the targeted mutations of potentially thousands of e.coli colonies? The drug companies are uniquely positioned to both carry out this plot and profit from it. In other words, they have the means and the motive to engage in precisely such actions.
Aside from the drug companies, perhaps only the infectious disease regulators themselves have this kind of laboratory capacity. The CDC, for example, could probably pull this off if they really wanted to.
The proof that somebody bioengineered this e.coli strain is written right in the DNA of the bacteria. That’s forensic evidence, and what it reveals cannot be denied. This strain underwent repeated and prolonged exposure to eight different classes of antibiotics, and then it somehow managed to appear in the food supply. How do you get to that if not through a well-planned scheme carried out by rogue scientists? There is no such thing as “spontaneous mutation” into a strain that is resistant to the top eight classes of brand-name antibiotic drugs being sold by Big Pharma today. Such mutations have to be deliberate.
Once again, if you disagree with this assessment, then what you’re saying is that NO, it wasn’t done deliberately… it happened accidentally! And again, I’m saying that’s even scarier! Because that means the antibiotic contamination of our world is now at such an extreme level of overkill that a strain of e.coli in the wild can be saturated with eight different classes of antibiotics to the point where it naturally develops into its own deadly superbug. If that’s what people believe, then that’s almost a scarier theory than the bioengineering explanation!
A new era has begun: Bioweapons in your food
But in either case — no matter what you believe — the simple truth is that the world is now facing a new era of global superbug strains of bacteria that can’t be treated with any known pharmaceutical. They can all, of course, be readily killed with colloidal silver, which is exactly why the FDA and world health regulators have viciously attacked colloidal silver companies all these years: They can’t have the public getting its hands on natural antibiotics that really work, you see. That would defeat the whole purpose of making everybody sick in the first place.
In fact, these strains of e.coli superbugs can be quite readily treated with a combination of natural full-spectrum antibiotics from plants such as garlic, ginger, onions and medicinal herbs. On top of that, probiotics can help balance the flora of the digestive tract and “crowd out” the deadly e.coli that might happen by. A healthy immune system and well-functioning digestive tract can fight off an e.coli superbug infection, but that’s yet another fact the medical community doesn’t want you to know. They much prefer you to remain a helpless victim lying in the hospital, waiting to die, with no options available to you. That’s “modern medicine” for ya. They cause the problems that they claim to treat, and then they won’t even treat you with anything that works in the first place.
Nearly all the deaths now attributable to this e.coli outbreak are easily and readily avoidable. These are deaths of ignorance. But even more, they may also be deaths from a new era of food-based bioweapons unleashed by either a group of mad scientists or an agenda-driven institution that has declared war on the human population.

Concerns : arrests and extraditions of Bilderberg criminals

Distinguished Cantonal Prosecutors,
Mr. the General Prosecutor of the Swiss Confederation (for information),

You do not ignore that the Bilderberg Group will meet, amongst other Swiss locations, in Sankt-Moritz between June 9th and June 12th, respectively June 8th and June 13th, 2011 in order to include here the landing and taking-off of their Private Jets, etc. on the Airports of Samedan, Kloten, if not Agno and Cointrin or even Belpmoos (last legs by helicopters, etc.), located in your respective Cantons. Meetings will be held at the Suvretta’s and for even more discreet ones, again in a Bad-Ragaz Hotel or at the Baur-au-Lac, Dolder (?) in Zürich, etc.

In the name of Cantonal Sovereignty and independence, but especially of the Justice’s independence from executive power – may it be Federal or Cantonal – I ask you to check abroad for Arrest Warrants delivered by various Courts, Judges and also for all valid criminal complaints against the persons who were, amongst others, cited as mere examples in my (enclosed) letters to Mrs. Simonetta Sommaruga, Federal Counselor and Mrs. Barbara Janom Steiner, Cantonal Counselor and of course, to arrest them before diligent extraditions.

If the name of Henry Kissinger or Georges W. Bush (should he come to Switzerland) are fairly evident in terms of “Wanted criminals” others, such as Nicolas Sarkozy in some days, but especially other Bilderbergers from all around the world, will obviously require that you first be in possession of the complete Bilderberg 2011 Participants’ List, before checking out for these names at Interpol, Den Hague, etc. A List that nor a National Counsellor, such as the undersigned, nor a Swiss Citizen and any not Bilderberg Journalist may get, either from Mr. Daniel Vasella (the organizer), nor from Bilderberg Headquarters in the Netherlands.

Furthermore, I do thank you to apply with civil courage the Law Articles (Treason, etc., mentioned in the letter to the Head of the Federal Justice and Police Department), to all Swiss Bilderberg Participants and a fortiori to all of those in Political Office.

Looking forward for your kind answers, along with a copy of said Participants’ List, be assured, Distinguished Cantonal Prosecutors, Mr. the General Prosecutor of the Swiss Confederation, of the expression of my high consideration.

Dominique Baettig, National Counselor Jura

Enclosures : mentioned

You can send this letter to all judges all over Europe, they have the right to launch such an action, thanks to European’s treaties.

Bactérie E.coli dans les concombres : ce qu’il faut savoir
Lexique

De quoi s’agit-il ?
– Une forme virulente d’infection mortelle à un sous-type (0104/H4) de la bactérie E.coli enterohémorragique (Eceh), propagée par des légumes et qui se niche également dans la viande crue.
– Ce micro-organisme de la bactérie E.coli est producteur de shiga-toxines (STEC). – Ces STEC peuvent entraîner des manifestations cliniques variées (diarrhée banale ou sanglante) pouvant évoluer vers une complication grave : le syndrome hémolytique et urémique (SHU).

Quels symptômes ?
– Le SHU affecte le sang, les reins et, dans les cas graves, le système nerveux central.
– La maladie se traduit par des diarrhées et du sang dans les selles, des maux de tête et de vives douleurs au ventre.
– La transmission à l’homme de cette bactérie se fait par la consommation d’aliments contaminés.
– L’incubation est de 5 à 7 jours.

Pourquoi cette infection inquiète-t-elle ?
– Il s’agit de l’une des plus importantes épidémies de STEC/SHU jamais recensées à travers le monde et de la plus importante épidémie de ce type en Allemagne, où 60 cas sont recensés en moyenne chaque année, selon le Centre européen de contrôle des maladies (ECDC).
– La souche bactérienne (0104/H4) actuelle est “très rare”, relève l’ECDC. Jusqu’alors, “un seul cas” concernant “une femme en Corée en 2005” avait été rapporté dans une publication scientifique, précise l’ECDC.
– Les experts soulignent aussi que cette épidémie est inhabituelle parce qu’elle touche principalement des adultes. “Alors que les cas de SHU sont habituellement observés chez des enfants de moins de cinq ans, cette épidémie touche à 87% des adultes, principalement les femmes (67% des cas)”, selon l’ECDC.
– Sa propagation est particulièrement rapide.

Où sévit-elle ?
– Les premiers cas sont apparus en Allemagne début mai, particulièrement dans le nord. Fin mai, Berlin dénombrait des centaines de personnes infectées et plusieurs morts.
– La Suède a également annoncé un mort.
– Des cas ou des suspicions de cas ont été signalés en France, au Danemark, en Grande-Bretagne, aux Pays-Bas, en Autriche, en France et en Suisse. Mais ils sont apparemment tous venus d’Allemagne (retour de voyageurs).

D’où provient-elle ?
– Les autorités sanitaires allemandes et européennes recherchent toujours l’origine de la bactérie.
– Si elle a été détectée sur des concombres en provenance de cultures sous serres d’Andalousie, en Espagne, il n’est pas exclu que la contamination ait pu se produire le long de la chaîne de distribution : sur le lieu de production, pendant le transport ou en Allemagne même. Des échantillons issus des exploitations agricoles andalouses, d’où provenaient des concombres sur lesquels la bactérie avait été détectée, ont été envoyés à un laboratoire en Galice.
– Par précaution toutefois, de nombreux Etats européens ont renforcé les contrôles voire suspendu l’importation des concombres ou des légumes en général de provenance espagnole et/ou allemande.

Comment éviter les risques ?
– Les autorités sanitaires rappellent les règles d’hygiène habituelles : se laver les mains avant chaque repas et après chaque passage aux toilettes (comme la bactérie peut aussi se propager d’une personne à l’autre via des matières fécales) et, concernant les fruits et légumes, les laver, les éplucher ou les faire cuire avant de les consommer.
– Il est recommandé en cas de signes d’alerte de faire des examens de santé.
– Les autorités allemandes ont déconseillé à la population de consommer des concombres, des tomates et de la laitue et certains de ces produits ont été retirés des étals.
– Pour plus d’informations sur les consignes : http://www.eurosurveillance.org/

Que font les autorités françaises ?
– En France, pour l’heure, les ministères de la Santé, de la Consommation et de l’Agriculture sont “en veille”.
– Le grossiste importateur des concombres d’Andalousie en France a rappelé des concombres en Bretagne, distribués en restauration commerciale et collective, mais sans avoir de retour de marchandise.

Téléphones mobiles, cancers pour tous ?

12 Conseils élémentaires de prévention afin de limiter l’exposition de l’utilisateur aux rayonnements du Téléphone Mobile.

1 – Utiliser un kit piéton (main libre) en éloignant à plus de 20/30 cm le portable de son corps afin de limiter les effets des rayonnements sur sa propre personne et limiter le nombre ainsi que la durée des communications à 6 minutes maximum qui est le temps nécessaire à l’autorégulation du corps.

2 – Ne pas porter son téléphone mobile près de son corps, même en veille et ne pas téléphoner à moins d’un mètre d’une personne, afin de diminuer l’impact de la « Téléphonie Passive ».

3 – Déconseiller fortement, voire ne pas utiliser un téléphone mobile en dessous de 15 ans (phase de croissance, avec une masse de tissus moindre, les rayonnements ont une nocivité accrue, notamment par rapport au cerveau, à l’ouverture de la Barrière Hémato-Encéphalique, à la chaîne d’ovaires, etc…).

4 – Déconseiller l’utilisation d’un téléphone mobile à une personne âgée et à toute personne en état dit de faiblesse (les rayonnements affaiblissent encore plus l’organisme), ainsi qu’aux femmes enceintes (le liquide amniotique dans lequel se développe l’embryon, puis le foetus est un milieu très absorbant aux rayonnements).

5 – Ne téléphoner que dans des conditions de réceptions optimales, en règle générale ne pas utiliser le portable dans tous les lieux confinés, comme ascenseurs, sous-sols, caravanes, métro, bus, etc . . . la puissance d’émission et de réception, donc des rayonnements étant décuplés.

6 – Ne pas téléphoner en se déplaçant, trains inclus, les puissances d’émission et de réception de l’irradiation de l’antenne relais du mobile sont décuplées celle-ci étant en recherches constantes.

7 – Ne pas téléphoner dans un véhicule, même à l’arrêt dans un espace métallique fermé il se produit le phénomène dit « cage de Faraday » qui optimise au maximum les effets nocifs des rayonnements par réflexions, non seulement sur l’utilisateur, mais aussi sur tous les passagers, notamment les enfants. En conséquence, il est impératif de sortir du véhicule pour téléphoner.

8 – Ne pas garder son portable allumé la nuit près de son lit car même en mode veille le portable se connecte à l’antenne relais et rayonne par phases.

9 – Acquérir de préférence : – un portable avec un indice de Débit d’Absorption Spécifique des tissus humains appelé DAS dont la valeur soit la plus basse possible, notamment à celle réglementaire de 1,1 W/Kg des orbites et joues. – un portable avec une antenne relais apparente, car même si le portable est moins ludique, l’antenne relais omnidirectionnelle diffuse de façon optimale, donc à moindre puissance par rapport à une antenne relais intégrée, donc préférer le critère santé au « look » du téléphone mobile.

10 – Déconseiller l’utilisation d’un téléphone mobile à toute personne qui possède des éléments métalliques magnétiques ou amagnétiques dans ou sur la tête du type amalgames, prothèses, appareil dentaire, plaques, vis, clips, piercings, boucles d’oreilles, lunettes, ce conseil étant étendu aux utilisateurs de déambulateurs, de fauteuils roulants métalliques ou béquilles, ceci afin d’éviter toutes réflexions, amplifications, points chauds, phénomène dit de résonance, réémetteurs passifs, etc …

11 – Utiliser des protections anti-ondes personnelles dites mécaniques (voiles, coffrets, etc . . .) qui ont un effet reconnu positif. *

12 – Passer le plus possible des communications mobiles aux communications filaires sans irradiation, qui sont maintenant la plupart du temps GRATUITES et illimitées avec internet, même à l’international.

Corruption, stop aux lobbies

Lobbies dévoilés !

Le 8 juin prochain, un comité très hétéroclite, animé par le remuant conseiller national UDC saint-gallois Lukas Reimann et le Parti Pirate lancera une collecte des signatures d’une initiative sur la transparence.

Elle exigera notamment de tous les élus à Berne de déclarer tous les revenus de leurs liens d’intérêt résultant de leurs mandats.

Dans de nombreux pays démocratiques, la démarche pourrait paraître banale, mais pas en Suisse où elle brise un tabou, note L’Hebdo.

L’initiative prévoit une sanction dissuasive: l’exclusion de toute commission parlementaire des députés en défaut.

Pascal Gloor, vice-président du Parti Pirate reconnaît que l’initiative n’a aucune chance devant les Chambres, mais il reste persuadé qu’elle passera devant le peuple. Il n’en demeure pas moins, relève le journaliste de L’Hebdo Michel Guillaume, que le texte de l’initiative reste explosif au niveau suisse.

Pour la première fois, il prévoit une sanction pour l’élu qui cache certains de ses revenus. Les Allemands ont de leur côté opté pour des amendes qui peuvent aller jusqu’à 100’000 euros mais les initiants helvètes y ont renoncé: “ce sont les lobbies qui paient les amendes”, affirme Lukas Reimann qui estime que priver les députés de commissions paraît plus efficace, car ils seront exclus du processus législatif.

Initiative
Les jeunes s’attaquent aux lobbies

EXCLUSIF. L’UDC Lukas Reimann, les pirates et quelques politiciens libres penseurs lancent une initiative qui exige la publication du revenu de toutes les activités des députés liées à leur mandat.

Dans de nombreux pays démocratiques, cette démarche apparaîtrait banale. Mais pas en Suisse. Ici, elle brise encore un tabou. Le 8 juin prochain, un comité très hétéroclite, animé notamment par le remuant conseiller national Lukas Reimann (UDC/SG) et le Parti pirate, lancera la collecte des signatures d’une initiative sur la transparence. Il exigera notamment de tous les élus à Berne de déclarer tous les revenus de leurs liens d’intérêt résultant de leur mandat. Et prévoit une sanction dissuasive: l’exclusion de toute commission parlementaire des députés pris en défaut.

«Devant les Chambres, nous n’avons aucune chance. Mais, si nous parvenons à réunir les 100 000 signatures requises, je suis persuadé que notre initiative passera devant le peuple.» C’est Pascal Gloor, viceprésident du Parti pirate, qui exprime son intime conviction. Sa formation est la seule à s’engager unanimement en faveur de l’initiative.

Agé de 35 ans, marié et père de deux enfants en bas âge, cet ingénieur en sécurité des réseaux domicilié à Péry (BE) est un novice en politique. Une brève adhésion au Parti socialiste du Jura bernois, très décevante, l’a vite incité à mettre les voiles pour rejoindre, en été 2009, un parti plus jeune et rebelle, où tout est à construire. «Nous voulons la mer», clame un des slogans de la petite brochure qui esquisse les cinq points lui tenant lieu de programme.

Point d’idéologie clairement identifiable chez les pirates. Juste la volonté bien affirmée d’adapter la législation à la société digitalisée d’aujourd’hui, face à laquelle les partis établis semblent déphasés. Le Parti pirate part en croisade contre la restriction des libertés individuelles touchant les nouvelles technologies. Et le voilà qui vient d’embarquer pour une autre aventure, à l’issue très incertaine.

Car, en Suisse, s’attaquer à la culture du secret qui enveloppe le pays reste un acte profondément iconoclaste. «Mais seule la transparence dans les affaires publiques nous protège de la corruption et des abus», objecte Pascal Gloor. Les pirates se sont très vite ralliés au jeune UDC Lukas Reimann, qui venait de lâcher, en février dernier, dans la presse dominicale alémanique, la «bombe» de son initiative en préparation. Un objectif collant aux idéaux de transparence des pirates.

Millionnaires UDC réservés. De son côté, Lukas Reimann n’avait pas informé les instances dirigeantes de son parti. Agé de 28 ans, le jeune Saint-Gallois est l’un des rares électrons libres de l’UDC. Parfois, il n’hésite pas à remettre en question la stratégie du patriarche Christoph Blocher. En été 2008, c’est lui qui avait imposé le référendum sur la libre circulation des personnes à son parti, alors que l’ancien conseiller fédéral aurait préféré faire profil bas. Aujourd’hui, il attaque sur un thème, la transparence, loin d’être populaire à l’UDC, dont les millionnaires, voire milliardaires, détestent étaler leur fortune au grand jour.

Avec sa démarche, Lukas Reimann ne s’est pas attiré des sympathies que dans l’électorat jeune qu’il voulait toucher en priorité. Il a trouvé des alliés dans presque tous les partis, à l’exception peut-être du PDC. Les députés PLR Christian Wasserfallen (BE) et Otto Ineichen (LU) ont salué sa démarche. Quant à la vice-présidente des Verts, Aline Trede, elle fait même partie du comité d’initiative.

Ce que le fougueux Saint-Gallois avoue moins volontiers, c’est que le comité d’initiative a dû se montrer moins ambitieux dans les objectifs poursuivis, sur les «conseils», notamment, de son président Toni Brunner. Lors de la dernière session, dans la salle des pas perdus du Conseil national, celui-ci a notifié à quelles conditions il ne s’opposerait pas à l’initiative. Pas question d’exiger des députés qu’ils révèlent leur revenu professionnel!

A l’heure où L’Hebdo écrit ces lignes, le nouveau texte de l’initiative, qui doit être approuvé ces jours-ci, ne figurait pas sur le site de ses auteurs: unbestechlich.ch. Pragmatiques, les «incorruptibles» ont accepté de se limiter à la publication du revenu des liens d’activité en relation avec le mandat des élus. «Nous reconnaissons que le salaire professionnel d’un député fait partie de sa sphère privée», dit Pascal Gloor.

Sanction. Il n’en reste pas moins que le texte de l’initiative reste explosif au niveau suisse. Pour la première fois, il prévoit une sanction pour l’élu qui cache certains de ses revenus. Celui-ci se verrait exclu de toutes les commissions. Les Allemands ont opté pour des amendes qui peuvent être salées, jusqu’à 100 000 euros, mais les initiants helvètes y ont renoncé: «Ce sont les lobbies qui paient les amendes», affirme Lukas Reimann. «Priver le député de commissions nous paraît plus efficace, car c’est l’exclure du processus législatif sur lequel il ne peut plus influer», renchérit Pascal Gloor.

Il sera intéressant de voir comment les appareils des partis réagiront à cette initiative qui séduit surtout leurs électrons libres. A l’UDC, Toni Brunner et Christoph Blocher sont restés très prudents. Peter Spuh-ler n’a pas caché son opposition, tandis que le Valaisan Oskar Freysinger, qui avait lui aussi tenté une démarche de transparence en 2007, applaudit des deux mains: «Il est vrai que certains députés sont achetés. Personnellement, j’ai refusé tout revenu lié à mon mandat, mais j’aurais pu gagner 200 000 francs par an si j’avais accepté tout ce qu’on m’a proposé», témoigne-t-il.

A gauche, l’écho est favorable – d’autant plus qu’une initiative parlementaire semblable de Jean-Charles Rielle (PS/GE) vient d’être rejetée en avril dernier –, mais avec de sérieux bémols. «C’est une démarche intéressante, mais il ne faudrait pas que cette volonté de transparence sur les élus occulte le principal problème, qui est celui de l’opacité sur le financement des partis», déclare Antonio Hodgers, président du groupe des Verts.

Lacune. Quant au sénateur Alain Berset, il regrette que les initiants aient renoncé à la publication du revenu professionnel des députés. «C’est une lacune, en particulier quand la profession est en lien direct avec le mandat de l’élu. De plus en plus de parlementaires sont des lobbyistes professionnels», constate-t-il. Il ne veut citer aucun nom. Mais il est indéniable que des députés comme Martin Landolt (PBD/GL), Christa Markwalder (PLR/BE), Natalie Rickli (UDC/ZH) et Alec von Graffenried (Les Verts/BE) n’ont tous été engagés, ces dernières années, dans l’économie privée qu’en raison de leur carrière politique.
Démocratie
Les innovations de l’initiative

L’initiative propose de modifier l’article 161 de la Constitution fédérale, apportant les nouveautés suivantes par rapport aux dispositions actuellement en vigueur, contenues dans la loi sur le Parlement:

Les élus doivent déclarer le «montant et l’origine de leurs revenus accessoires et des cadeaux qu’ils ont reçus, dans la mesure où ils ont un lien avec leur mandat». Actuellement, les députés n’indiquent que leurs liens d’intérêt.

«Les services du Parlement contrôlent l’exactitude des indications fournies.» Aujourd’hui, ils ne le font pas. En fait, c’est la presse qui exerce officieusement ce contrôle en mettant sous pression les parlementaires qui «oublient» certains de leurs mandats.

«Tout député qui contrevient à ses obligations est exclu de toutes les commissions pour le reste de son mandat.» Cette forme de sanction est une première.

«La procédure de vote au sein des Conseils permet de savoir de quelle manière chaque député a voté.» Cela obligerait le Conseil des Etats à adopter, lui aussi, le vote électronique. Ironie de l’histoire: ce postulat a toujours été défendu par le passé par les socialistes. C’est aujourd’hui un jeune UDC, dont le parti ne cesse de qualifier le Conseil des Etats de «Chambre obscure», qui le reprend à son compte…
