A Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request filed by,

  • Friends of the Earth (FoE)

  • Physicians for Social Responsibility (PSR)

  • the Nuclear Information and Resource Center (NIRS),

...has unearthed a shocking series of new evidence proving a deliberate, global cover-up of the true severity of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster.


And the unfortunate reality is that the mainstream media continues to blatantly ignore this colossal scandal.

Private emails, meeting transcripts and other key documents reveal that both the Obama White House and the United States Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) were well aware of just how bad things really were with Fukushima from the early days of the disaster, but did nothing to warn the public about it.


In fact, NRC and the White House purposely did not warn Americans about a massive radiation plume that struck the West Coast just days after the massive earthquake and tsunami hit Japan's eastern coast.

According to information gathered from hundreds of pages worth of private NRC emails, conference calls and secret meetings, key players in the Fukushima whitewashing campaign, including the NRC's David McIntyre and Elliot Brenner, were hard at work in the days following the disaster distracting public attention away from it.


By pretending that a radioactive plume did not exist while simultaneously sending out misinformation to the media, these two, in conjunction with White House officials, actively participated in a criminal cover-up of the truth.

You can read key portions of these criminal dealings here.




Plume-gate, the world's biggest nuclear cover-up to date

A situation that is now being dubbed "Plume-gate," this massive cover-up of critical information about Fukushima could have saved thousands of lives, including the more than 14,000 individuals, many of whom were babies, that died in the weeks following the disaster.


And yet to this very day, the federal government's cozy relationship with the nuclear industry has allowed the injustice to continue, as no proper investigation into this dastardly crime has yet taken place.

"The executive branch and multiple federal agencies, agencies tasked with keeping the American public safe, did their best to hide and to cover-up information about a deadly radioactive plume and ensuing fallout that was headed for the West Coast of the United States from Japan," writes Tony Muga from The Intel Hub about the situation.

Not only did these government agencies hide the truth and deliberately deceive the public, they also used other events, including the infamous Qur'an burning in Afghanistan, as a distraction to divert public attention away from Fukushima, and away from the 104 nuclear reactors in the U.S. that are of a similar age and vulnerability as Fukushima.

So why is the federal government getting away with all this?


It is for the same reason that it gets away with most of its other crimes against humanity: corporate fascism. And sadly, corporate fascism is a bipartisan problem, as both Republicans and Democrats today are slaves to it, representing opposite but identical sides of the same coin.

"It seems that the fundamental problem with what Americans are experiencing is not just radioactive fallout but Fascism, the merging of the corporate and the state," adds Muga.


"In a fascist state, there is little or no responsible action from the corporations for there is little or no promotion of accountability from the state. The corporations, for all intents and purposes, control the state."



Media Silent Over Feds Fukushima Cover-Up

the TheIntelHub Website

Nearly a week after FOIA documents revealed a massive concerted government orchestrated Fukushima cover up, the corporate media remains silent.

The FOIA documents, emails and transcripts I wrote about in the NRC cover-up article have been out for at least two weeks. The three groups that petitioned for them to be released have remained quiet, very quiet, choosing instead to post the documents online and see who runs with it. carried several editorials, but nothing that connected all the dots together.

Let’s see if I can put bluntly what others will not say:

The executive branch and multiple federal agencies, agencies tasked with keeping the American public safe, did their best to hide and to cover-up information about a deadly radioactive plume and ensuing fallout that was headed for the West Coast of the United States from Japan.

The fact it was real and did arrive is proven by samplings from milk, vegetables and rainwater.

Even though EPA testing methodology and actual capability were questioned, independent sources verified the fallout.

To those who say radiation does not travel in a plume or that fallout is a local phenomenon, read ‘Chernobyl - Consequences of The Catastrophe for People and The Environment’.


There is an excellent distillation of the book at

The evidence obtained in the FOIA request indicates that right from the start, the NRC had a clear idea of the significance of the disaster that was unfolding, but concealed the truth from the American public.

The results of the plume and fallout can be measured in the rise of infant mortality rates: cells of unborn and newborn children are dividing at a much higher rate than those of a mature adult, thus the amount of damage is greatly increased and hence more detectable.

Conservative estimates place the number of stillborn following the Fukushima accident at over 18,000.

  • How many could have been saved by simply warning folks to stay indoors?

  • Why didn’t a FEMA emergency broadcast warn athletes to practice indoors or not at all?

  • What about pregnant women, why were they not given precautionary measures?

A word about the energy industry: technology suppression is the name of the game.


How else do you maintain an energy monopoly?


If Stan Meyer’s water car or the Japanese production water car had ever made it to market, lot’s of super rich energy barons would have lost all their power and money:

history proves they will stop at nothing to maintain this monopoly.

Why are solar cells restricted if they are more than 20% efficient? Why are power systems greater than 70% efficient restricted?

Just consider how difficult it is to control a nuclear chain reaction that boils water, turning a turbine and generating electricity.


Einstein once said:

‘Nuclear power is a hell of a way to boil water!’.

But what if you could turn your home into a solar generating station and bypass these monopolies?

What if there were clean energy, but it was not in a form that could be easily monopolized? What if the dirty and dangerous energy sources were the ones the elite could control, thus explaining why we continue to suffer from incidents like the BP Gulf Oil Disaster, Three Mile Island or Fukushima and why solar cells are restricted to 20% efficiency.

Telling the truth about all this is very dangerous. A Japanese research scientist was recently found ‘suicided’ with a plastic bag over his head after posting results of his tests online. There are others who have died under mysterious circumstances as well.

In any case, the emails and conference call transcripts reveal the cover up, there can be no other conclusion-even with heavy redaction-the plan was to do everything possible to limit the public knowledge and paint as positive a picture as possible.

Saving the nuclear industry was paramount. Talking points were (are) a big factor. They knew the plume was coming.

There was no effort to warn Americans. No one told folks to stay indoors, or to not be out jogging or playing sports, not even the first 3-4 weeks when the heaviest amounts were raining down on us.

Obama and family spent some time in South America around the 18th of March, so they were safe during the worst of the plume.

  • But what about the rest of us?

  • And what about the agencies involved that conspired to hide this from the American public?

  • Agencies whose purpose is to protect Americans?

  • Is their real purpose just the opposite?

  • To protect the corporate and protect the state at all costs?

  • What about all the press agencies and ‘alternative’ media that remains silent on these matters… they have access to the emails and transcripts like anyone else….are they bought and paid for?

  • Are they afraid?

Credit must be given to for posting the original editorials and to the Intel Hub who had the courage and patriotism to run the article and place it on the headline ticker.

Only the
Alexander Higgins blog has followed suit. Everyone else in the mainstream and ‘alternative’ media is silent.

Coincidentally, the Wikileaks document dump and Qur’an burning are taking center stage while the cover-up that killed over 18,000 unborn infants is not.



  • Who can you trust in the media?

  • Who can you trust in the ‘alternative’ media?

  • Considering the far reaching implications of ‘Plume-Gate’, the cover-up, the infant deaths and the election year we find ourselves in, can you trust a source unwilling to speak about this grave matter?

  • Is it possible the ‘alternative’ media has been co-opted, infiltrated and corrupted to a large degree?

It is this author’s opinion that any media source not shouting about Plume-Gate as loud as they can are likely controlled by the powers-that-be.

Those sources are the most dangerous, the ones who gain your confidence by broadcasting the truth for years only to deceive you at the final moment when it will hurt you the most. So who do you trust?

In the words of the famous philosopher J. Krishnamurti, maybe its time we should ‘think on these things’.


FOIA Documents

Please take the time to examine both the 395 page document and the 186 page document in order to more fully comprehend the nature of the cover-up. All of this information has been forwarded to both mainstream and ‘alternative” media sources.
