Commentaries by J Truman
Founder and Director of Downwinders
On the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT),
the "Permanent Five", India and Pakistan,
and Other Observations

i've been enjoying the privilege of being included in mailings from J Truman. Of late, with the "hot"
                    Asian Annihilation Bombing
                    International Nuclear Mafia's Lastest Puppets Unveiled
story, i've become that much more appreciative of J's keen, incisive, in-it-for/over-the-long-haul analysis of what's really going on here, and what we who oppose such nuclear-envy transgressions must do if mankind is ever to succeed in jumping off the annihilation-envy merry-go-round before it makes its final revolution in to oblivion, taking all the precious remaining infinitude of Life on Earth with it.
          Included below are a selection of some of the more salient observations J has to share on what the true meaning and implications are of the explosions fracturing our Mother Earth in Asia. It is incumbent upon everyone who apprehends the actual dynamics of this situation to do everything possible to help others understand precisely "who" the true "loose cannon", as well as the de-facto leader, of this "problem" actually is. In the best sense, J Truman upholds the tradition of journalists/writers/editors like George Seldes, honoring the same credo that was Seldes guiding light:   "If ever the facts are presented fairly and honestly, truth will take care of itself."


[W]hen it comes to news which will affect you, your daily life, your job, your relation to other peoples, your thinking on economic and social problems, and, more important today, your going to war and risking your life for a great ideal, then you cannot trust about 98 percent (or perhaps 99 1/2 percent) of the big newspaper and big magazine press of America.

  2. Paul Jacobs and the Nuclear Gang 16mm color film, 1979, 60 mins.
    A dramatic story of the cover-up by the U.S. Nuclear Program and of the hazards of radiation to American citizens. This film documents journalist Paul Jacobs' personal and political struggle of 20 years to uncover the cover-up beginning with his investigation of the effects on civilians and soldiers of being exposed to fallout from bomb tests in Nevada. The emotional impact of the film stems from its close attention to human detail: the shock and quiet indignation in the voices of the dying men and women of St. George, Utah, used as guinea pigs by the Atomic Energy Commission, and the blandness and cynicism with which government officials justify past actions and current politics. The film also has clips from old AEC and Army films of soldiers being marched into bomb test areas and of citizens being assured that fallout won't hurt them. Not available for college rental. Colleges must contact: New Time Films, 1501 Broadway, Suite 1904, NY, NY 10036. (212-921-7020) You will need an extra large takeup reel. Fee C
