Battery display devices mistaken for terrorist bombs

Boston is in an uproar this week after stupid people dialed 911 upon spotting "threatening looking" devices planted in various locations around the city. What was threatening about the devices? They had wires and batteries.

Oh yeah, and they were advertising the cartoon character from Aqua Teen Hunger Force. Scary, huh?

Thanks to over five years of fear mongering by the Bush Administration and Fox News, Americans believe they live in a country under siege by terrorists who use size "D" batteries to plant advertising displays of mass destruction in large U.S. cities. The same devices were also planted in Los Angeles, New York, Chicago, Seattle and even Atlanta, but for some reason, only the people in Boston were stupid enough to mistake them for bombs.

To show how serious they are about fighting terrorism, law enforcement authorities in Boston are charging Peter Berdovsky and his "accomplice" with a felony count of planting "hoax devices." The real hoax, of course, is that Berdovsky's simple battery-operated LED displays were any threat at all, or that they even resembled some sort of bomb. It takes a whole lot of paranoia to look at an animated flashy cartoon circuit board and come to the conclusion that Al Qaeda has invaded your city and strategically placed bombs in key advertising locations designed to maximize visibility.

Apparently, the average American is so unfamiliar with basic electronics that they think anything with exposed wires is an Improvised Explosive Device (IED). Obviously, they've they've never opened the lid on their own personal computer, because if they did, they'd probably frantically dial 911 from their own desk, thinking that some terrorist had planted a bomb in their computer. "Look at all the red wires! It must be a bomb!" (And then they would think they got the bomb from an email virus, too.)

Here's an actual quote from a news story about the incident: Authorities said some of the objects looked like circuit boards or had wires hanging from them. Really? Wires? The authorities figured this out all by themselves without even having to Google the phrase "red wires flashy thingy with batteries?" Thank goodness our tax dollars are hard at work in the Boston law enforcement community, keeping the citizenry safe from battery-powered red flashy thingies with wires.

I have an important message to share with the citizens of Boston: there are wires in your car, too. Don't leap from your driver's seat and call 911, screaming about how terrorists have wired your car to blow up. Those wires operate your vehicle's electronics. They actually have a purpose that is not related to terrorism. It's all detailed in that automobile owner's manual you've never opened, still crammed in your glove box under a pile of greasy oil change receipts and unpaid parking tickets.

Spread the word around Boston, please, and let people know that wires do not equal bombs. Circuit boards are built by the Chinese, not by Al Qaeda. And when terrorists plant bombs, they do not use bright, flashy electronic displays that scream, "Look at me!"

The fact that electronic displays can now cause a major U.S. city to go into a terror-sticken panic says a lot about the success of fear mongering in America today. The pro-war, fear-based propaganda campaigns masterminded by the White House and catapulted into mainstream consciousness by Fox News are now causing Americans to experience consensus mass hallucinations, where an entire city shares a fictitious (in fact, laughable) delusion based on nothing but programmed psychology.

The War on Terror was invented, packaged and marketed by the Bush Administration as a way to control American citizens, and the fact that it can turn an entire city into a mob of delusional, paranoid idiots is downright impressive. I knew the sheeple were easy for the White House to manipulate, but I never imagined they could be programmed to look at simple electronics and see weapons of mass destruction.

Then again, they can also look at an idiot standing behind a podium and think they see a world leader. So who knows what's really possible here. The sky's the limit. In 2004, the whole country thought it actually saw an election. Pretty much everybody thinks they saw a jumbo jet fly into the Pentagon on 9/11, too, but as I've stated previously, it was actually a flying grilled cheese sandwich.

And I have the photo to prove it!

About the author:Mike Adams (aka the "Health Ranger") is a best selling author (#1 best selling science book on Amazon.com) and a globally recognized scientific researcher in clean foods. He serves as the founding editor of NaturalNews.com and the lab science director of an internationally accredited (ISO 17025) analytical laboratory known as CWC Labs. There, he was awarded a Certificate of Excellence for achieving extremely high accuracy in the analysis of toxic elements in unknown water samples using ICP-MS instrumentation. Adams is also highly proficient in running liquid chromatography, ion chromatography and mass spectrometry time-of-flight analytical instrumentation.

Adams is a person of color whose ancestors include Africans and Native American Indians. He's also of Native American heritage, which he credits as inspiring his "Health Ranger" passion for protecting life and nature against the destruction caused by chemicals, heavy metals and other forms of pollution.

Adams is the founder and publisher of the open source science journal Natural Science Journal, the author of numerous peer-reviewed science papers published by the journal, and the author of the world's first book that published ICP-MS heavy metals analysis results for foods, dietary supplements, pet food, spices and fast food. The book is entitled Food Forensics and is published by BenBella Books.

In his laboratory research, Adams has made numerous food safety breakthroughs such as revealing rice protein products imported from Asia to be contaminated with toxic heavy metals like lead, cadmium and tungsten. Adams was the first food science researcher to document high levels of tungsten in superfoods. He also discovered over 11 ppm lead in imported mangosteen powder, and led an industry-wide voluntary agreement to limit heavy metals in rice protein products.

In addition to his lab work, Adams is also the (non-paid) executive director of the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center (CWC), an organization that redirects 100% of its donations receipts to grant programs that teach children and women how to grow their own food or vastly improve their nutrition. Through the non-profit CWC, Adams also launched Nutrition Rescue, a program that donates essential vitamins to people in need. Click here to see some of the CWC success stories.

With a background in science and software technology, Adams is the original founder of the email newsletter technology company known as Arial Software. Using his technical experience combined with his love for natural health, Adams developed and deployed the content management system currently driving NaturalNews.com. He also engineered the high-level statistical algorithms that power SCIENCE.naturalnews.com, a massive research resource featuring over 10 million scientific studies.

Adams is well known for his incredibly popular consumer activism video blowing the lid on fake blueberries used throughout the food supply. He has also exposed "strange fibers" found in Chicken McNuggets, fake academic credentials of so-called health "gurus," dangerous "detox" products imported as battery acid and sold for oral consumption, fake acai berry scams, the California raw milk raids, the vaccine research fraud revealed by industry whistleblowers and many other topics.

Adams has also helped defend the rights of home gardeners and protect the medical freedom rights of parents. Adams is widely recognized to have made a remarkable global impact on issues like GMOs, vaccines, nutrition therapies, human consciousness.

In addition to his activism, Adams is an accomplished musician who has released over a dozen popular songs covering a variety of activism topics.
