Why Agriculture Could Be Automated Before Other Industries "IndyWatch Feed World"

The machines are coming for your produce.

The machines are coming for your produce.

In 1870, agriculture was a source of employment for about half the U.S. workforce; now just 2% of the population produces food for a living, according to government figures. As large machines have increasingly done the work of ploughing and harvesting crops and tending to livestock, farms have become ever more human-free. And what of the future? They may provide barely any jobs at all.

Partisan Battle Looms over Defense Bill Provision Seen by Dems as Fueling Workplace Discrimination "IndyWatch Feed"

By Richard Lardner, Associated Press


By WASHINGTON (AP) — Congressional Republicans and Democrats will have to bridge a vast cultural divide over an issue that has nothing to do with bullets and bombs to complete a must-pass defense policy bill.


A key sticking point in the negotiations during the upcoming lame-duck session is a House-passed provision that Senate Democrats say would undercut protections against workplace discrimination based on sexual or gender orientation. They've called the measure dangerous and are demanding it be removed from the $602 billion measure.


Many House Republicans, however, view the provision as a bulwark for religious liberty and just as adamantly want it kept in the final package. Donald Trump's victory in the presidential election has strengthened their hand should the contentious debate begin anew next year.


"It's going to be a tough one for them to figure out," said Justin Johnson, a senior defense policy analyst at the Heritage Foundation, a conservative think tank. Drop the amendment and risk a backlash from rank-and-file Republicans, he said. Keep it in and Democrats could mobilize to block the defense bill, which authorizes spending for military programs that range from jet fighters to a pay raise for the troops.


A filibuster carries risks for Democrats. They could be hammered by the GOP for stymieing legislation important to U.S. service members and their families. And even if the provision is dropped to avoid a veto by President Barack Obama, Republicans — who control both houses of Congress — could wait until Trump is in the White House and attach the provision to a different bill.


"I think the election gives congressional Republicans a lot more leverage on this issue," Johnson said. "They don't have to be too worried about a veto threat because the situation only improves next year."


Although much of Trump's agenda on social issues remains opaque, he assured conservatives during the campaign that he would place a high priority on religious liberty.


The tenure of Indiana Gov. Mike Pence, the vice president-elect, was punctuated by his steadfast support for conservative social issues that at times drew unwanted attention to the state, most notably when a religious objections law he signed provoked a national backlash from critics who said it could sanction discrimination against gay people.

Denying Journalists’ Traditional Travel Access to New President Keeps Americans in Dark "IndyWatch Feed"

By Kathleen Hennessey, Associated Press


WASHINGTON (AP) — Donald Trump is keeping Americans in the dark about his earliest conversations and decisions as president-elect, bucking a long-standing practice intended to ensure the public has a watchful eye on its new leader.


Trump on Thursday refused to allow journalists to travel with him to Washington for his historic first meetings with President Barack Obama and congressional leaders. The Republican's top advisers rebuffed news organizations' requests for a small "pool" of journalists to trail him as he attended the meetings.


The decision was part of an opaque pattern in Trump's moves since his victory Tuesday. He was entirely out of sight on Wednesday. His aides said he was huddled with advisers at his offices in New York. His team has not put out a daily schedule, or offered any detailed updates on how he has spent his time. They have not acknowledged phone calls or other contact with world leaders.


When Russian President Vladimir Putin sent a congratulatory telegram to Trump on Wednesday, Moscow spread the word. A phone call with British Prime Minster Theresa May was announced in London. The pattern was repeated for calls with leaders of Israel, Egypt, South Korea and Australia.


The White House typically releases statements on the president's phone calls with foreign leaders, providing some details about the conversation. Past presidents-elect have had early briefings with journalists, even in confusing first hours after Election Day.


But early signs suggest Trump is willing to break protocol when it comes to press access and transparency.


As a candidate, Trump railed against the press as "disgusting" and "dishonest." He refused to allow a pool of campaign reporters and photographers to fly on his plane to events, sometimes starting his rallies before his press corps had arrived. The practice did not extend to his running mate, Mike Pence, who was followed by a traditional pool of journalists.


News organizations had tried for weeks to coordinate a pool of journalists to travel with Trump immediately after Election Day if he won. The Associated Press is among those reaching out to Trump advisers about press access.


Trump spokeswoman Hope Hicks said the president-elect's team expects "to operate a traditional pool and look forward to implementing our plans in the near future."

Facebook at Center of Debate over Influence of Fake News on Election "IndyWatch Feed"

By Barbara Ortutay, AP Technology Writer


NEW YORK (AP) — Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg says the idea that fake news spread on Facebook influenced the outcome of the U.S. election is "crazy."


Still, the majority of Americans (six in 10) say they get at least some news from social media, mostly Facebook, according to the Pew Research Center. While a lot of this news comes from established outlets — whether CNN or BuzzFeed News, misinformation spreads on Facebook just as information does, shared by users, recommended by software and amplified by both.


Sources of spurious information have ranged from news articles produced by "content farms" for the sole purpose of getting clicks, to "hyperpartisan" sites from both sides of the political spectrum, churning out stories that are misleading at best.


Case in point: "FBI AGENT SUSPECTED IN HILLARY EMAIL LEAKS FOUND DEAD IN APPARENT MURDER-SUICIDE" — a fabricated headline from a fake news site called the Denver Guardian, was shared thousands of times in the days leading up to the election.


Is it possible that voters were swayed for or against a candidate, much like those same people might buy a product after seeing an ad on Facebook?


Zuckerberg says voters deserve more credit.


During an interview Thursday with "The Facebook Effect" author David Kirkpatrick, Zuckerberg said idea that people voted the way they did because of bogus information on Facebook shows a "profound lack of empathy" for supporters of Donald Trump.


"Voters make decisions based on their lived experience," he said.


Given the acerbic political contest from which the country just emerged, when countless longtime friends, even family, were unfriended, many are left to wonder if there would be an alternative American history being written today if it were not for Facebook, Twitter and the like.


This, after all, was the first truly social media election, playing out on Twitter and Facebook as much or more than it did on major networks, in living rooms and around watercoolers.


But isn't social media just a reflection of our world as it exists? Has Facebook become an easy scapegoat when the answer is far more complex?


While Pew found that many believe political discussions on social media to be "uniquely angry and disrespectful," a comparable number have the same impression of face-to-face conversations when it comes to Democrats, the GOP, or another party.




When it comes to Facebook users, Zuckerberg said almost everyone has friends on the &q...


New Hampshire Lawmaker Re-elected and Arrested on Same Day "IndyWatch Feed"

By Associated Press


HOOKSETT, N.H. (AP) — A New Hampshire lawmaker wanted by police for failing to show up for a court hearing was re-elected and arrested on the same day.


New Hampshire Public Radio reports that Republican state Rep. Dick Marple was sitting outside a polling place with his campaign signs on Election Day when an officer recognized him. Marple was charged with driving without a valid license in December 2014.


Authorities had issued a bench warrant for his arrest after he failed to show up for a court hearing in October.


Police say Marple drove himself to the police station and was arrested.


He also was re-elected to a fifth term.


Marple said Friday he is being targeted as a troublemaker because he strictly interprets the state constitution.


Guatemala’s Ambassador to the United States: Who Is Gladys Marithza Ruiz de Vielman? "IndyWatch Feed"

Gladys Marithza Ruiz de Vielman, a former Guatemalan Minister of Foreign Affairs, presented her credentials as her country’s ambassador to the United States on June 27, 2016. It’s her second ambassadorial posting.


Ruiz de Vielman was born and raised in Guatemala but is very familiar with the United States. She graduated from Our Lady of Mercy (now Mercy) High School in Detroit, Michigan. She then returned to Guatemala for college, graduating with a law degree from Universidad Rafael Landivar in 1973.


She began her own law firm the following year. In addition, beginning in 1975, she returned to her alma mater as a law professor. In the late 1980s, Ruiz de Vielman began working on development projects, via the World Bank and other organizations, in Guatemala.


Ruiz de Vielman was named Minister of Foreign Affairs in 1994. She also worked as a negotiator in the talks to form the World Trade Organization (WTO). Much of her work on the team centered on banana quotas between Guatemala and the European Union. Ruiz de Vielman was minister only into 1995 but continued to serve as a special adviser to the ministry for years. In 1998, her teaching took her to Washington’s Georgetown University, where she gave seminars on WTO dispute resolution.


Ruiz de Vielman was named Guatemala’s ambassador to the United Kingdom in 2000. The same year, she began to serve two years on the board of directors of the WTO’s advisory center. Ruiz de Vielman also was her country’s representative to the International Coffee Organization, International Sugar Organization and International Maritime Organization during this period.


She returned to Guatemala in 2003 and made an unsuccessful bid for the vice-presidency of the country. Ruiz de Vielman continued her private law practice and worked on national issues. In 2004, she helped found the International Commission Against Impunity in Guatemala (CICIG in Spanish) which worked to stop clandestine security groups in the country. In 2009, she became coordinator of the National Legal Group, which advises the Foreign Ministry regarding the claim by Guatemala in its border dispute against Belize before the International Court of Justice.


Ruiz de Vielman speaks Spanish, English, French and Portuguese.

Feral pigs, vampire bats, and infectious diseases in rural Brazil "IndyWatch Feed National"

A new study examines the impacts of invasive feral pigs, a favorite prey of vampire bats, on ecosystems in rural Brazil. The distribution of feral pigs — which are also known as wild boars, or “javali” in Portuguese, and are actually the same species as the domestic pig (Sus scrofa) — has increased five-fold since they were first recorded in Brazil in 2007. A group of Brazilian researchers found that not only might populations of vampire bats (Desmodus rotundus) explode as a result of this invasion of feral pigs, but associated threats, such as the spread of infectious diseases, could increase as well. The results of their study were published in the journal Frontiers in Ecology and the Environment earlier this month. The wild boar is becoming a dominant mammal in Brazil’s Atlantic forest and could potentially invade the Amazon region, as well, according to Felipe Pedrosa, an ecologist from São Paulo State University in Brazil who studies the impacts of feral pigs on biodiversity and co-authored the study. The natural range of Sus scrofa is mostly in Europe and Asia, but the species, which is considered one of the worst invasive species in the world, has been introduced in Australia, South America, and the USA. As wild boars invade new territory, damage to crops such as maize, sugarcane, and soybeans as well as predation of native birds and mammals usually increases as well. The study notes that this trend has been shown in all ecosystems invaded by wild boars,…

The Death of Political Science is Greatly Exaggerated "IndyWatch Feed World"

There is a lot to think about in the aftermath of Trump’s win.  Lots of early hot talks will be wrong.  One of the first reactions has been to wonder about the value of political science (which is not the most important thing to think about but we have plenty of time and bandwidth to cover this and everything else):

To be clear, folks in the discipline will be thinking about this election for some time to come, trying to figure out why most political scientists (and everyone else) got it wrong.  w.  But the idea that this is an indictment of the discipline is foolish.  It presents the entire discipline as predictors of elections.  Because my thoughts are still scrambled by anger, fear, sleep deprivation and shock, I will just listicle why this claim about political science is so very bogus:

  1. Hillary Clinton won the popular vote as predicted.  Oops.  What we got wrong was the distribution of the vote–that the rust belt states went red.  But only barely so.  It does not take too many people to show up in a few states to flip the narratives.
  2. Ours is a probabilistic social science–we can and should indicate how uncertain we are.  I pooh-poohed Nate Silver’s discussions of uncertainty because I hated the metaphors, but he was right to indicate that there was significant uncertainty.  The race was too close to be so confident (I will be issuing mea culpas for years).
  3. The claim that we couldn’t predict the election and what that says about the discipline reminds me of what people said about the collapse of the Soviet Union.  That is, political science may be bad at predicting singular events.   This election had a lot of stuff going on that was far from normal, and we are less good at explaining outliers.  Never before had an outside power (Russia) and a non-state actor (wikileaks) conspired to favor one candidate.  That does not mean that political science is bad at explaining.  More on that below.
  4. Most people are forgetting (thanks to folks like me who wrote out of their lane) #notallpolitical scientists are elections experts. We are a big discipline addressing all kinds of political phenomenon.  Real election experts are a small proportion of those who study the US–lots of Americanists study Congress, the courts, Con law, public policy, and on and on.  Oh, and Americanists are not all political scientists, despite how it sometimes seems in department politics and when picking up certain journals.  Comparatives, IR sch...

The mechanical structure of the Matrix "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

The mechanical structure of the Matrix

by Jon Rappoport

August 10, 2016

(To read about Jon’s mega-collection, Exit From The Matrix, click here.)

Basically, the mechanical structure of the Matrix is derived from the concept that:

Everything is connected to everything.

This notion is increasingly hailed as a positive marvel. For example, in quantum entanglement, pared particles, even at great distances from each other, both react to an impact on either particle.

“Everything/connected” produces a sensation of Weave&All Inclusiveness.

It’s ultimately designed for long-term rental. The occupant is there, and there he will stay.

Feeling this Oneness is Matrix religion, and it is meant to instill a sense of the sacred. Holy, holy. The mind completes the equation: sacred=forever. It’s a ruse. “Sacred” is no more forever than listening to a Bach concerto is forever. It’s one thing to bathe in a majestic feeling. It’s quite another thing to infer it means eternal occupancy.

There are many people ready to shake your hand and embrace you and welcome you into the labyrinth, the weave, the connection of everything to everything.

People aspire to be wired into the “everything/connected” apparatus as their highest ambition—which is their primary substitute for imagination.

That they don’t realize this doesn’t make it any less true.

“I’m one atom in an infinity of atoms all connected throughout the universe, and this is what I want to feel. This is illumination and enlightenment. This is the grand essence, the final stop on the train ride.”

Well, let me put it to you in this way. Let’s say you’re an actor. You work in a repertory theater that stages 100000000000000000 plays. In each play, you have a role, a different role. You’re “connected” to each one of those roles. BUT YOU’RE AN ACTOR. That means you can inhabit a role and then take it off like a coat. It doesn’t mean you’re forever chained up to every role you play.

However, this distinction is lost on most people.

The idea of everything/connected is quite old. You can find it enunciated in ancient Egypt and China, and traces of it exist in Aristotle. It’s often arranged as a hierarchy. The “great chain of being.”

So are we talking about an architecture of the universe or a notion in the mind?


Think of everything/connected as a style of building among various possible styles.

And religion is its goal—the inducement of religiou...

The Hubris Of Democratic Elites, Clinton Campaign Gave Us President Trump "IndyWatch Feed World"

Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton listens as Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt. speaks during a campaign stop at the University Of New Hampshire in Durham, N.H., Wednesday, Sept. 28, 2016.

Published in partnership with Shadowproof.

Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign, her network of super political action committees, and the liberal establishment relished a matchup against Donald Trump. However, her campaign failed to put forward an alternative for voters that would combat a candidate that tapped into the vast amount of disillusionment among citizens. Tsunamis of voters unaccounted for in state polls, who do not identify with either the Democratic or Republican Parties, made President Trump a reality.

Clinton’s concession speech indicated the campaign and many of its supporters are unwilling to confront the hubris of her presidential run. Yet, citizens, especially those on the left, must in order to find the clarity to move onward with fights for social, economic, racial, and environmental justice.

The Democratic Party rigged parts of the party’s primary for Clinton, and it helped stave off a decisive challenge from Senator Bernie Sanders. The senator addressed the material conditions of the working class, including people of color. He warned the Democrats of wealth inequality, destructive free trade agreements, and some of the negative effects of global capitalism on the common man or woman. He connected with disaffected people who the Clinton campaign effectively wrote-off and performed well in states that Clinton lost in the general election.

However, the Democratic Party elites survived and coerced Sanders and his supporters into falling in line at their national convention. The party leadership enforced unity in Philadelphia to make it appear as if all was well when t...


Trump Does Sort Of U-Turn On Obamacare "IndyWatch Feed World"

President-elect Donald Trump has performed an apparent U-turn on one of his main campaign promises to repeal the Affordable Care Act, better known as Obamacare. Trump’s promise to repeal Obamacare helped him clinch the White House. After meeting with President Obama this week Trump said he wants to keep some if good parts of Obamacare. The president-elect told Washington Post that “either Obamacare will be amended, or repealed and replaced.” There are reports that Trump is surrounding himself with establishment insiders and Washington lobbyists. Anti Media reports: Donald Trump has surrounded himself with establishment insiders, meaning those who voted for Trump may soon begin feeling the betrayal many Obama supporters felt when they came to learn Obama was not going to bring the change he peddled. After meeting with Obama this week to discuss an array of presidential issues, Donald Trump made a complete U-turn on one of his biggest campaign promises. Trump announced that despite his earlier promises, which seemed to resonate largely with his fan base, he will not be repealing Obamacare, after all. Instead, he will likely only be looking to amend Obama’s famous policy rather than completely doing away with the legislation, and most likely will be leaving [...]

SR 1338 – NO MORE PARDONS – HEADS MUST ROLL – Not Vindictive, Rule of Law Absolute Necessity "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

Visit our website now: - considered by informed insiders’ as THE ultimate resource for fixing the National Debt problem and surviving Economic or Financial Collapse/Crash and attaining the unvarnished truth about Washington and today’s United States Political Climate. Good evening, I’m still reporting on offering No Pardons – Heads Must Roll SR 1338 – NO MORE PARDONS – HEADS MUST ROLL – Not Vindictive, Rule of Law Absolute Necessity So I just had to take a break. It’s been a pretty-much unbroken chain of no days off for the last 18 months. I just had to stop and recalibrate. Even now, it’s 6 pm and I just had to take a caffeine tablet to keep me from falling asleep right now. So that’s enough of the whining. Back to it. Oops, I just can’t let this go one more minute without mentioning it. I sincerely thank every one of you that dug deep to support us in the last 3 months of this campaign. We just could literally not have stayed on guard duty as hard and as long as we did without that support. This was a really, really close election – and if the Never-Trumpers have their way they may still try to overturn it. Bottom line -- that ain’t gonna happen. Trump is in the White House on Jan. 20th and the result is 3 or 4 supreme count picks for the home team. But in addition a few other lovely parting gifts, the destruction of socialized medicine, the hard stop of any future illegal immigration, the forced deportation of thousands of illegal alien criminals, kiss your beloved Iran nuke deal good-bye, etcetera, etcetera. In the words of that mighty statesman Somebody Obama: “Elections have consequences.” And here are the consequences. If you are a hard-working, law abiding citizen of the United States – no matter what race – no matter how much or how little money you have - you will have nothing – ZERO – to fear from President Trump. Nothing but good things will come your way for at least the next 4 years. If you are here to do this nation harm, you better be packing up for Canada now. At least that way, your departure from home will be at a time of your choosing. Back to my point – those of you who supported us – may played a pivotal role in making this election happen. I don’t know to what extent - and we’ll never know for sure this side of the pearly gates – but the narrowness of the wins in a bunch of these states was between half a percent and 2 percent. And I’d like to think that you guys helped move the needle this year, when your country needed you the most. Thank you. Thank you.

Deadly Blast At US Base In Afghanistan, 4 Dead, Several Others Injured "IndyWatch Feed Africa"

A huge explosion at Bagram airbase in Afghanistan, the largest US military facility in the country, has killed at least four people.

At least 14 others were wounded in the blast. The Taliban said one of their suicide bombers carried out the attack.

The attack is being seen as a major security breach in one of the best protected places in Afghanistan.

The bomb reportedly exploded inside the base, which if confirmed, would be the first attack of its kind.

Attacks on Bagram have occurred in the past but insurgents have never made it past the compound's outer walls.

Bagram, just north of the capital Kabul, has been used as the main military base and airfield by the US-led forces and Nato over the past 14 years.

A local government spokesman was quoted as saying the attacker entered the base early in the morning on foot hidden among a group of workers reporting for duty.

Reckoning with a Trump Presidency and the Elite Democrats Who Helped Deliver It "IndyWatch Feed"

The United States has been plunged into a state of purgatory following the election of Donald Trump. In all political quarters, people are engaged in their own post-mortem analysis of how this happened and what it means, not only for the future of this country, but for the world. Trump ran on a pledge to engage in mass deportations, denying Muslims entry to the US, the stripping of abortion rights and threats to “bomb the shit” out of ISIS. Although Trump has staked out conflicting positions on a wide range of issues over the past several years, his campaign centered on an overtly nativist agenda. And his running mate, Mike Pence, is one of the key leaders of the radical religious right contingent of the Republican Party.


While many Democrats are pointing fingers outside their own ranks to make sense of the stunning defeat of Hillary Clinton, few are willing to examine how their choice of nominee and the campaign they ran shaped the result. In this podcast, Intercept editor-in-chief Betsy Reed and co-founders Glenn Greenwald and Jeremy Scahill break down how we got here and what a Trump presidency means for civil liberties, surveillance, war, abortion rights, and other issues. Below is a lightly edited transcript of the conversation.

Jeremy Scahill: Thanks for joining us. I’m Jeremy Scahill at the Intercept coming to you from American purgatory. The phrase President Trump is going to be a reality for at least the next four years. To discuss how this happened and what it means I’m joined by two of my colleagues, Betsy Reed who is the Editor-in-Chief of The Intercept, and Glenn Greenwald, my fellow cofounder of The Intercept and columnist and journalist. Glenn, you wrote a piece in reaction to the election, “Democrats, Trump and the ongoing dangerous refusal to learn the lesson of Brexit” — tell us about that piece.

Glenn Greenwald: It was inspired essentially by the immediate effort of the Democratic Party and their spokespeople in the media who had basically devoted themselves single-mindedly to Hillary Clinton’s election over the last eighteen months to immediately start searching for everybody they can find to cast blame on, other than themselves, for what is now really the reduction of the Democratic Party into a small fringe minority party.

James Carville said that he doesn’t recall in his lifetime any party being as weak across the board as the Democratic Party. You would think that when a party faces such devastating losses over time but especially such a crushing defeat like this one to su...

Magazine - It must have been sweet music to the ears of workers in Monessen, Pennsylvania, in the heart of America’s rust belt. “Globalization has made the financial elite who donate to politicians very wealthy,” the political candidate declared during a speech at a struggling aluminum plant. “But it has left millions of our workers with nothing but poverty and heartache.”


The ‘Marrakech Call’, Not Trump, Hobbles Climate Change Talks in Morocco "IndyWatch Feed Asia"

Many developing countries have raised concerns over the contents of the document, and the manner in which it was prepared and is being pushed without their agreement.

At the end of five days of climate change negotiations in Morocco, rather than the news of Donald Trump being elected as the next US president, a four-page document hobbled the crucial talks over implementing the Paris Agreement.

The document, a draft of “Marrakech Call For Climate Action And Sustainable Development”, dated November 9, was selectively shared by the Moroccan presidency of the negotiations on Friday. Heads of states and ministers from 196 countries are expected to reach the Moroccan capital over the weekend for the high level segment of the two week negotiations. Business Standard reviewed the document, which has not yet been made public and was shared confidentially with country groupings.

The Morocco round of negotiations this year were expected to set some key ground rules to write the rule book for the Paris Agreement over next year or two. But, the presidency of the negotiations has also sprung out the high-profile political statement called the ‘Marrakech Call’ for the incoming heads of states and ministers to adopt, bypassing the formal negotiations.

By Friday evening, the document left many developing countries angry at both the content and the manner in which it was being pushed through at the talks. Even as they remained mindful that host Morocco is also a developing country, they expressed their anger behind closed doors in meetings of country groups. At least one key developing country voiced concerns that if the hosts tried to force countries to adopt the ‘Marrakech Call’ it in its current shape it could lead to a Copenhagen-like situation – where the climate talks crashed in 2009 when Denmark tried the take-it-or-leave it tack with developing countries as well.

Others, though as upset, expressed hope that Morocco would listen to concerns of developing countries o...


Oh Dear! Armed Robbers Write Ogun State Residents, Warn Them To Keep Christmas Money & Gifts For Them "IndyWatch Feed Africa"

The Ogun State Commissioner of Police, CP, Ahmed Iliyasu, has called on residents of Anglican Road, Ilupewo community in Ado-Odo-Otta Local Government Area of the state to remain calm after they reportedly received a letter from suspected armed robbers of an impending visit.

The robbers posted the letters on gates and doors informing residents of the boundary community between Lagos and Ogun States, to keep Christmas gifts for them as they would be visiting anytime soon.

Following the development, the residents have been living in fear, while some have deserted their homes.

According to reports, the residents, Wednesday, woke up to discover several of such letters posted to their doorposts, telling them that the robbers were coming for the operation because of the coming Christmas and New Year festivities.

The letter which had the following incomplete phone numbers – 0702288949, 080449930 – stressed that they (robbers) didn’t want excuses from residents over non-availability of money at home.

The said letter reportedly typed in Yoruba language, introduced the robbers as ‘Strong men of the road that own the night,’ urging the recipients to ensure they keep money at home always, even as they vowed to deal mercilessly with any resident who claims he does not have money as advanced notice has been given to prepare them.

But the CP, in a statement on Thursday, assured the residents that the police was working effortlessly to stop the planned robbery.

He stated that about 60 houses on Anglican Road had the letters posted on their doorposts and that the residents reported the matter at the Sango Police Station.

He, however, called on the residents to remain calm as the security operatives were up to task in dealing with the criminals.

“We are on top of the situation and security has been beefed up in the community,” the CP stated.

Must-Watch: Mark Blyth on Ramifications of US Elections "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

Cross-posted from Naked Capitalism

Even though this assessment of the Trump win and the implications for American politics going forward is long, it’s also meaty and very much worth your attention. Mark Blyth was virtually the only person to call a Trump victory from the get-go (a colleague who spends a lot of time outside the Acela corridor is another member of that club) but also correctly gamed out how the stock market would react.

Everything Blyth says (from 13 minutes in) is incisive, colorful, and on the mark. By contrast, it’s frustrating listening to Schiller because she is invested heavily in Dem orthodoxy, and not even in the plausible parts: the Hillary scandals were manufactured by Republicans, Sanders would have lost if he were the Democratic candidate, Clinton was a victim of being a woman with a long political career (hello?). Similarly, towards the end, Blyth says, “There is no left left. It’s already had its lunch eaten,” and explains why, and then Schiller begs to differ by trying to depict the Democrats as still a real force and capable of being “renovated”. Help me. But she does have some random insightful remarks.

In other words, you can run the video and tune your attention in and out, although you may then want to go back and listen to just the Mark Blyth remarks a second time. There’s a lot of solid material here.

Scientists Have Developed a Type of HIV Test On a USB Stick "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

Scientists have developed a type of HIV test on a USB stick.

The device, created by scientists at Imperial College London and DNA Electronics, uses a drop of blood to detect HIV, and then creates an electrical signal that can be read by a computer, laptop or handheld device.

The disposable test could be used for HIV patients to monitor their own treatment. Furthermore, the technology could enable patients with HIV to be managed more effectively in remote locations.

New research, published in the journal Scientific Reports, shows the device is not only very accurate, but can produce a result in under 30 minutes. The new technology monitors the amount of virus in the bloodstream. This is crucial to monitoring a patient's treatment.

Current tests to detect the amount of virus take at least three days, often longer, and involves sending a blood sample to a laboratory. In many parts of the world, particularly those with the highest number of HIV infections, such testing does not exist at all.

Boris Johnson backtracks on Trump, calls for EU leaders to stop whining "IndyWatch Feed World"

British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson has ordered an end to the "collective whinge-o-rama" about Donald Trump's election to the White House. It's part of an apparent change of heart from Johnson who had previously called Trump "unfit" for office. Johnson was in full backtracking mode on Wednesday morning soon after Trump's win, tweeting he was "looking forward" to working with the president-elect's new administration. "I would respectfully say to my beloved European friends and colleagues that it's time that we snapped out of the general doom and gloom about the result of this election and collective 'whinge-o-rama' that seems to be going on in some places," the former London mayor said during a diplomatic visit to Serbia on Friday. The remarks contrast starkly with those made last year, when Johnson dubbed the businessman "unfit" to rule and "out of his mind" if he wanted to ban Muslims from entering the United States. He also suggested that Trump's remarks were "playing the game of the terrorists."


Just Another Puppet?: Trump’s Establishment Cabinet Picks, Back-Tracking Raise Concerns "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"


Credit – Reuters

Everyone remembers 2008. Barack Obama had been elected after promising to end needless wars, lift up the poor and minorities, and stand up to the big banks among others. However, once elected, Wall Street banks chose his cabinet and transition team and Obama’s presidency was not all that different than a third term of his predecessor, George W. Bush, giving the office of the president nothing more than a face lift. Fast forward 8 years later and history seems to be repeating itself. Donald Trump, a billionaire whose campaign was based around strong anti-establishment feelings and corruption-busting promises, appears to have followed in Obama’s footsteps by surrounding himself with Washington insiders, bankers, and a slew of other decidedly “establishment” characters.

Trump’s likely pick for Secretary of State is said to be Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich, a vocal Trump supporter. Gingrich, in June, said that he supports the formation of a House Committee on Un-American activities, which could give rise to the neo-McCarthyism that many Trump supporters sought to avoid by not voting for Trump’s opponent in the election, Hillary Clinton. Another likely pick is Trump’s finance chairman, Steven Mnuchin, a 17-year veteran of Goldman Sachs and current CEO of private investment firm Dune Capital Management. With Mnuchin as Treasury Secretary, Trump’s campaign promises to restore the Glass-Steagall Act and to reign in the big banks are unlikely to materialize. Forrest Lucas, co-founder of Lucas oil products, is Trump’s top pick...

President Obama with children at Standing Rock Indian Reservation in June 2014

Published November 12, 2016

WASHINGTON – President Barack Obama, who throughout his presidency has attempted to correct the ills of the past towards this continent’s first people, is now set to approve the easement in the Missouri River.

This approval will be over the objection of over 200 American Indian tribes across Indian Country that stand with the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe. Thousands of American Indians from throughout Indian Country have traveled to support the water protectors who have camped near Cannon Ball, North Dakota near the Standing Rock Indian Reservation.

Politico is reporting President Barack Obama will approve the easement for the Dakota Access pipeline near the Standing Rock Indian Reservation as soon as Monday, according to sources close to administration.

This action will surely impact Obama’s legacy among American Indians. The water protectors have been there since April 1, 2016 when 50 American Indians set up camp to pray that the pipeline does not go through the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe’s ancestral land and waterway. Water protectors have faced mace. vicious dogs and arrest for their fighting the pipeline.

No, Trump Didn’t Kill The TPP — Progressives Did "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

By Arthur Stamoulis for Medium - If you read the headlines, Donald Trump’s election has killed the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP). The headlines have it wrong. Donald Trump didn’t kill the TPP. Assuming we see the fight through to the bitter end, it’s the cross-border, cross-sector, progressive “movement of movements” that will have defeated the TPP. While overshadowed by the horror of Trump’s election, this victory will be one of the biggest wins against concentrated corporate power in our lifetimes, and it holds lessons we should internalize as we steel ourselves for the many challenges we face heading into the Trump years.

Russell Brand Offers A Fresh Perspective On Why Donald Trump Was Elected "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"


After taking a break from discussing politics on his show True News, Russell Brand returned just in time to comment on the fact that Donald Trump won the 2016 U.S. Presidential election.  Rather than bash the President-elect and some of the hateful statements he’s made in the past, Brand listed reasons why  why many likely voted for the business tycoon.

It comes down to this: people are demanding change – and while they definitely would have received it with Democratic Socialist Bernie Sanders, he was screwed out of a nomination by the Democratic National Committee (DNC). In result, the best option for people who are disillusioned by the system had was to elect Donald Trump, who is anything but conventional. Trump, unlike Hillary Clinton, is not owned by corporate establishments and cannot be bought. In addition, a continued regime of the Obama Administration with Hillary Clinton would have undoubtedly led to more war in the Middle East.

In the video below, Brand explains why a Trump presidency was inevitable, and what this means going forward:

The Clintons and Soros launching America's Purple Revolution "IndyWatch Feed World"

Defeated Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton is not about to "go quietly into that good night". On the morning after her surprising and unanticipated defeat at the hands of Republican Party upstart Donald Trump, Mrs. Clinton and her husband, former President Bill Clinton, entered the ball room of the art-deco New Yorker hotel in midtown Manhattan and were both adorned in purple attire. The press immediately noticed the color and asked what it represented. Clinton spokespeople claimed it was to represent the coming together of Democratic "Blue America" and Republican "Red America" into a united purple blend. This statement was a complete ruse as is known by citizens of countries targeted in the past by the vile political operations of international hedge fund tycoon George Soros. The Clintons, who both have received millions of dollars in campaign contributions and Clinton Foundation donations from Soros, were, in fact, helping to launch Soros's "Purple Revolution" in America. The Purple Revolution will resist all efforts by the Trump administration to push back against the globalist policies of the Clintons and soon-to-be ex-President Barack Obama. The Purple Revolution will also seek to make the Trump administration a short one through Soros-style street protests and political disruption.

Shipwrecks in the Black Sea "IndyWatch Feed"

In the Times, William Broad has a long article about the shipwrecks recently discovered by robotic exploration of the Black Sea. I didn't write about this story when it came out because none of the news reports I read had enough information about the project to make me feel comfortable. But Broad has done a great job of putting the discoveries in context.

The story starts with the weird oceanography of the Black Sea. A bunch of big rivers flow into this small sea, flooding it with fresh water and organic matter. The influx of fresh water causes the sea to divide into two distinct zones, with heavier, less saline water in the depths and a 200-meter deep layer of salty water on top. The vast amounts of organic matter mostly sink into the sealed depths. You may have read that when too much fertilizer and so on flows down rivers, a huge dead zone forms around the river mouths, where the excess phosphorus and nitrogen cause bacterial blooms that deplete all the oxygen. This has happened on a grand scale in the Black Sea. As a result the whole sea below about 200 meters is so low in oxygen as to be almost completely dead. In particular, none of the organisms that typically eat wooden shipwrecks are present.

As long ago as the 1970s, underwater explorers realized this and started suggesting that somebody should explore the Black Sea and find the wrecks that might be preserved in the anoxic depths. But they mostly suggested that somebody else do it. The Black Sea is bordered around most of its shores by broad shelves of water less than 200 meters deep – light blue in the map above – so to reach the anoxic bottoms required exploring the deep water in the center, far from land and therefore far from clues as to where wrecks might be found. A sort of needle in a haystack operation.

The etymology of the name ‘Donald Trump’ means ‘The Great Deceiver’ in old English "IndyWatch Feed"

Apparently evangelical Christians in the US voted en masse for Donald Trump because they believe it is “God’s will” that Trump becomes President and the most powerful person in the world.

So why is it not even one of them has noticed that Trump’s name literally means “The Great Deceiver” – or in other words another name for Satan and the name of the person who is supposed to bring about the end of the world in the book of Revelations.

The name Donald in old English or Celtic means “great ruler”:

Big Soda's strategy to make us believe that it is all about calories "IndyWatch Feed World"

Coca-Cola loves to promote the Calories In/ Calories Out (CICO) model. As one of the leading purveyors of sugar sweetened beverages, it constitutes a significant portion of the added sugars in the American diet. Do you remember the story of the Twinkie diet? In 2010, Mark Haub, a researcher at the Kansas State University achieved notoriety as a follower of the Twinkie diet. For 10 weeks, Haub ate a Twinkie every three hours instead of a regular meal. He also ate Doritos, Oreo cookies and sugary cereal. The catch was that he would only eat 1800 calories per day of some of the most fattening foods on the planet. In those two months, he lost 27 pounds, his LDL cholesterol got better as did his triglycerides. This gained the attention of every mainstream media outlet, including CNN. This supported the view that it was all about the calories. You could eat whatever you wanted, but as long as you reduced calories, you could still lose weight.

My 350 on Donald Trump: leadership crisis in the West "IndyWatch Feed"

"Trump's election and BREXIT speak louder than the referendum and election results."

Who would ever have thought that a man who has never held public office, calls women and migrants names that are socially unacceptable, and who has bragged about sexually assaulting women could be voted in as president of the most powerful country in the world.

This makes me wonder what has happened to the American people that made them reach the point where they have let the dark side of human nature influence their political decisions.

The general feeling of the American people is that they have been let down by political elites for many years. These politicians' promises of improving their quality of life significantly have not materialised.  On the contrary, they have been worse off. The recent economic crisis and the Government's reaction became a turning point in the overall dismay of the people towards politicians.

This was caused by the feeling that the Government was concerned with bailing out banks and corporations and forgetting to support the people who were most affected by the financial crisis. The people feel that political elites work for the benefit of big corporations, putting aside the interests and challenges of the wider working class.

Hilary Clinton is seen by many alienated voters to be one of the mainstream political elite, given that she held various political positions and given her family's reported connections and personal benefits from corporations directly and indirectly through the Clinton Foundation.

Their votes for a politically untested Trump over an ‘experienced’ Clinton were undoubtedly protest votes.

Similar sentiments of disappointment and mistrust of the mainstream political establishment have been felt by voters in the United Kingdom and led to the vote to leave the European Union, which was against the will of the majority of political elites.

Both Brexit and the election of Donald Trump as President of America are strong signals of a crisis of leadership that the West is facing, more important than though caused by the economic crisis of 2008.

It is important that politicians recognise this root cause of the current revolution that has been expressed in the form of protest votes.

Politicians in the West should return to a genuine politics that would give people confidence in feeling that they are at the centre of politicians’ concerns.

The following news bulletin continued the theme:
The President-elect of the United States, Donald Trump, who campaigned vigorously on a pledge to scrap Barack Obama's signature healthcare reforms, has said he may now keep elements of the policy. Mr Trump had repeatedly vowed to repeal the legislation, which has allowed millions of poorer Americans to obtain health insurance, on the first day of his presidency.

For Donald Trump on the pre-election campaign trail scrapping President Obama's Affordable Care Bill, or Obamacare, was a key policy priority. It was a programme that, at his packed rallies, Mr Trump repeatedly called a "disaster".
Donald Trump: Real change begins with immediately repealing and replacing Obamacare. 
With too much government interference in the healthcare industry, argued Trump supporters and Republican leaders in Congress, they agreed Obamacare should be repealed.

Visit our website now: - considered by informed insiders’ as THE ultimate resource for fixing the National Debt problem and surviving Economic or Financial Collapse/Crash and attaining the unvarnished truth about Washington and today’s United States Political Climate. Good morning, I’m still reporting on Playing Nice and Hedging Bets to Void Possible Prosecution SR 1337 PLAYING NICE - President-Elect Donald Trump Meets With President Obama at White House President Obama hosts a meeting in the Oval Office and other areas of the White House today with President-Elect Donald J. Trump. They has never actually met before. Reports are they were to meet for only 15 to 20 minutes yet talked for over one and a half hours. Topics purportedly included White House operations, logistics, domestic and foreign policy and more. Both men seemed quite conciliatory and even commented that First Lady Michelle Obama and soon-to-be First Lady Melania Trump also met. So it appears that the meeting was a great step in passing the Presidential baton… or was the invitation by Obama an attempt to play nice so he himself may not get into hot water with Trump’s new Attorney General of Special Prosecutor in the future?

Brazil holds nationwide strikes against Temer 'the usurper' after harsh budget cuts "IndyWatch Feed World"

Wide-scale protests against harsh social development budget cuts over next 20 years are taking place in Brazil. Meanwhile, former President Dilma Rousseff has promised to produce evidence of interim leader Michel Temer's corruption. Protests against "the government's conservative agenda," namely the Proposed Constitutional Amendment (PEC 55) introduced to Congress by President Michel Temer, began sweeping the country early Friday morning. Citizens of at least 19 out of 27 Brazilian states and the Federal District participated in the protests. PEC 55 is an amendment which will freeze all the investments in the country's public services for 20 years.

A Place To Reflect, To Reconnect "IndyWatch Feed World"


This past week I have been at Villa del Faro with Seth and Jocelyn, reviewing plans for 2017. It was a week in which the thought came to us: people need time to reflect (among other important things). I took this photo of the Stone Beach Cottage at about 5:30 p.m. yesterday and I can visualize many friends, colleagues, and plenty of as yet unknown folks who would benefit from some reflection time there.

Yes, I am aware that not everyone has the option to do this. But for those who do, and must choose a place of quiet contemplation, and would prefer one off grid and close to one of the most remarkable marine ecosystems on the planet, look no further.

Tenderness "IndyWatch Feed Pacific"

When it flooded people would come from all around the district to see the valley full of quiet brown water.

We strangers to one another, lived on the top of the ridge, with its five houses, an old pub and two street lights.  People wondered why any of us were there, why such a grand hotel, surrounded by sprawling queenslanders with elaborate gables and six paned windows lined a road that swept down into a valley in the middle of nowhere. 

There was a time long before mine, when we were the town before the town up and left and moved to higher ground across the river.  There’d been more houses but over time all but ours had collapsed, their concrete slabs freely and my guess permanently snuffed out by the lush tropical vegetation.  No one was coming back out here.  They might stop at the pub for lunch or a beer garden band on a Sunday afternoon but that was the extent of it.  Because of the floods mostly.  The rain was so heavy some days you couldn’t see the house across the road.  It was no wonder the river that ran beside us burst its banks three or four times a year.

"98 Percent of Confederate Soldiers Never Owned a Slave" "IndyWatch Feed"

Back in 2011, the Texas legislature passed a resolution designating April Confederate Heritage Month. As I just learned from Dead Confederates, written into the language of the bill was an old bit of Lost Cause propaganda, the statement that "ninety-eight percent of Texas Confederate soldiers never owned a slave". This statement is routinely made about Confederate soldiers in general, and is factually inaccurate. The best available study on this sort of question is Joseph T. Glatthaar's General Lee's Army: From Victory to Collapse (2009). Glatthaar showed that about 10 percent of the soldiers who volunteered to serve in 1861 personally owned slaves. But even that number is misleading, because soldiers were mostly young men, and young men don't own much property. Another 26 percent of Lee's soldiers came from families that owned slaves, so their own future inheritances consisted largely of human beings. So a better number for the number of slave owners in Lee's army is about 36 percent. Across the whole Confederacy, about 24 percent of households owned slaves, so soldiers were more likely to own slaves than those who did not serve.

Emergent Gravity "IndyWatch Feed"

As I wrote a few days ago about the debate among physicists about gravity and dark matter. Now Physorg has a nice little article on one of the new theories of gravity, which is called Emergent Gravity:

In 2010, Erik Verlinde surprised the world with a completely new theory of gravity. According to Verlinde, gravity is not a fundamental force of nature, but an emergent phenomenon. In the same way that temperature arises from the movement of microscopic particles, gravity emerges from the changes of fundamental bits of information, stored in the very structure of spacetime.

In his 2010 article (On the origin of gravity and the laws of Newton), Verlinde showed how Newton's famous second law, which describes how apples fall from trees and satellites stay in orbit, can be derived from these underlying microscopic building blocks. Extending his previous work and work done by others, Verlinde now shows how to understand the curious behaviour of stars in galaxies without adding the puzzling dark matter. . . .

According to Verlinde, there is no need to add a mysterious dark matter particle to the theory. In a new paper, which appeared today on the ArXiv preprint server, Verlinde shows how his theory of gravity accurately predicts the velocities by which the stars rotate around the center of the Milky Way, as well as the motion of stars inside other galaxies.

"We have evidence that this new view of gravity actually agrees with the observations, " says Verlinde. "At large scales, it seems, gravity just doesn't behave the way Einstein's theory predicts."
Lots of cutting edge theoretical physics is focused on information. I'm not sure how much of that is a sort of fad derived from the prominence of computers in our lives, and how much it will end up explaining. But I find all of these new approaches promising.

On Harry Reid's Moral Outrage "IndyWatch Feed"

Reading Harry Reid’s letter to the American people brought up such a mix of conflicting emotions. Mostly, though, I feel disbelief that this is reality. I cannot dispute a single word of what Harry Reid wrote. I can’t believe that we’re in a position where the Senate Minority Leader feels so morally outraged at the election of a new president that he feels compelled to respond this way.

Naturally I feel the sting of it. In any normal situation, calling the president-elect “a sexual predator who lost the popular vote and fueled his campaign with bigotry and hate,” would be an inexcusable violation of norms and an actual threat to our democracy. I can’t even imagine the outrage I would feel if the shoe was on the other foot and Mitch McConnell said anything remotely comparable about president-elect Clinton.

There’s a powerful argument that the best defense against Trump is the strength of our history and traditions and system, and that the reality of the requirements of governance are the best bets for house training him and limiting the damage.

But there’s an equally compelling argument that the biggest danger is normalizing Trump in any way, and that making the traditional accommodations to a new president is an irresponsible abdication of moral duty.

I don’t know how to feel, and that’s very unsettling.

On some level, responsible people have to make an effort to keep our government moving, one step after another. How do you do that, though, without validating Trump and Trumpism and in some ways empowering him?

Regardless of what you think you know, does he deserve at least some space to show us how he’ll act now that he’s actually responsible for all of us?

Or has he already signaled that he isn’t about to make any pivot by the people he’s floating to serve in his administration?

What an impossible situation this is!


A New Resistance Will Arise "IndyWatch Feed"

I was helping my son with his homework last night and I noticed that he had accidentally dated his work in several places with 10/10 rather than 11/10. That’s when I realized that my brother’s birthday had snuck up on me. Tomorrow is his birthday and he would have been 57 years old. Last year, his birthday came so close on the heels of his unexpected death that it didn’t really add to our misery, but this year is different. This morning, I didn’t really want to get out of bed. I felt too nauseated to move.

Well, I got out of bed and I realized that I’m feeling nauseated a lot lately and it’s not the kind of sick feeling that has the prospect of going away any time soon.

I am certain I am not alone in this.

The last time I felt this way was as I watched the Twin Towers fall and I began to contemplate what it was going to do to our national character, particularly under the leadership of what I knew to be an administration absolutely bent on catering to and stoking our worst angels.

It took us a while back then to find each other and get organized, but we did it. It wasn’t quite in time for the 2004 elections, but by 2006 we were a real movement both online and in real life.

I’m feeling a little old and used up at the moment, as though maybe I can’t do this again. Maybe it’s time for the next generation. But that’s just stress and exhaustion speaking, and perhaps the realization that this is a thousand times more dire.

Right now, everyone wants to hash things out, settle scores, argue that their sage advice wasn’t heeded.

That’s human nature and you can’t really fight against it.

But eventually the people who are going to fight this battle and organize for it will find each other, and they’ll be the new leaders. They won’t be looking to score points against people who are mostly on their side. They’ll be looking to build the biggest, strongest movement possible.

When the time comes, look me up. I’ll be ready.


Who's to Blame? "IndyWatch Feed"

I don’t like Jill Stein. I don’t have one good word to say about her. It has nothing to do with her being a member of the Green Party or deciding to run for president and it has everything to do with her personality, her lack of intelligence, her sanctimonious dishonest bullshit, and her almost regal hypocrisy. I am not a fan. And I’ve been mocking her (mostly on Twitter) for having so little support that she can see Zero from her house.

And, it’s true, virtually no one voted for her and for good reason. I’d guess that three-quarters of the votes she did get were not cast in support of her personally but more as just a way of saying that you didn’t like your choices or that you’re to the left of Clinton or that you didn’t like how Sanders was treated, or whatever.

Here’s the irony, though. Now there are a bunch of people coming out who are really incensed that she’s getting blamed (along with Gary Johnson) for throwing the election to Donald Trump. And what’s their argument?

Their argument is that it’s impossible for her to have destroyed the country and probably the world because she didn’t get enough votes to change anything.

Now, first of all, that’s a contentious assertion. She and Johnson did get enough votes in enough key states that their voters alone could have changed the election. But this debate gets muddled quickly because no one keeps their categories segregated. Are we blaming Jill Stein for putting her name on the ballot? Or are we blaming the people who voted for her for not voting for Clinton? Are we going to include the people who stayed home because Stein wasn’t on the ticket (in some states)?

So, let’s not make this too complicated. Did Jill Stein and Gary Johnson cause Donald Trump to win simply by putting their names on the ballots in key states? That’s kind of unknowable. We can argue about how we think their voters would have behaved if given only two choices. It’s a close call, and it will probably never be decided conclusively.

The next question, though, is would it have been easier to say they did if they got more votes? And here I think the answer is clearly yes, particularly for Stein. If she had gotten 10% or 20% of the vote, no one would be disputing that she had cost Clinton the election. So, this defense of her really comes down to saying that she didn’t make Trump our president but only because she failed to win more support.

It’s a very odd defense of Jill Stein. She tried to throw the election to Trump but it turned out that Trump didn’t need her help.

It really doesn’t make her look better. She had no appeal so she did no damage so don’t be mad at her.


That’s great.

But this is all a distraction because it’s not about who was on the ballot but about who voted...

Trump's Power is Out of Proportion to His Mandate "IndyWatch Feed"

Here’s a list of the top ten popular vote winners in U.S. presidential history (by thousands of votes):

Update [2016-11-10 13:19:58 by BooMan]: I accidentally forgot to include Mitt Romney, so this is now a Top 11 list and the rest of the post is amended to reflect my error.

1. 2008- Barack Obama- 69,499
2. 2012- Barack Obama- 65,916
3. 2004- George W. Bush- 62,041
4. 2012- Mitt Romney- 60,934
5. 2008- John McCain- 59,948
6. 2016- Hillary Clinton- 59,938
7. 2016- Donald Trump- 59,705
8. 2004- John Kerry- 59,028
9. 1984- Ronald Reagan- 54,455
10. 2000- Al Gore- 51,000
11. 2000- George W. Bush- 50,456

A few notes: If she hasn’t already, Clinton will eventually pass John McCain and be in fifth place on this list. Obviously, the list is biased in favor of participants in the most recent elections since population growth has been constant. That’s why the ten out of eleven are from the last four presidential elections.

Still, Al Gore is listed higher than his 2000 opponent and Donald Trump is listed higher than his 2016 opponent. Coming in in seventh place is even less impressive for Trump when you realize that he ran in the election with the largest population. He got fewer votes than John McCain did eight years ago in an election where McCain only pulled a little over forty-five percent. He barely got more votes than John Kerry did twelve years ago in a losing effort.

In the end, Clinton will receive more votes than anyone except Barack Obama, George W. Bush in 2004, and Mitt Romney in 2008, and yet she won’t become president. Donald Trump will be behind not only his opponent but John McCain and Sarah Palin.

In most ways, none of this matters. Candidates don’t vie to win the popular vote. If they did, they would campaign in different states and their ads would be different and placed in different media markets. They’d possibly pick different running mates and adopt modified policies. They run to win the Electoral College, and that is how they should be judged. They also don’t run against candidates from prior or future elections. A win is a win.

But, as we begin to look at just how consequential this election will be, it’s important to have some perspective about how much support there is for the changes that are coming. Consider this:

Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick, who chaired Trump’s campaign in Texas, said the businessman’s victory allows state Republicans to “move forward with boldness and confidence,” finally free to push conservative legislation without having to worry about Washington undermining it.

“The fact we’re going to have a rock-solid conservative on the Supreme Court, and maybe two or three more before his term ends, and the fact that we’re not goin...

Avoiding the Political Southification of the North "IndyWatch Feed"

While I (and seemingly every other political analyst) am sticking licking my wounds over missing the presidential election outcome so badly, I did get the opportunity this morning to revisit some analysis that I mostly got right. I went back and looked at a piece I wrote in December 2015 called Trump and the Missing White Voters. It was an eerie experience reading it and it gave me a sick feeling.

I looked at some analysis Sean Trende had done in 2013, and some competing analysis done then by Karl Rove, over whether or not the Republicans needed to pass a comprehensive immigration reform bill in order to ever compete in a national election again. I concluded that Donald Trump was well-poistioned to execute Trende’s strategy of opposing immigration reform and winning the presidential election by turning out white voters who had not participated in 2012.

Now, this is an interesting and important debate, but there’s something that both sides agree about. They agree that there is a big pool of white voters out there who voted for McCain but not for Romney. And they agree that their profile is basically that of blue collar workers in the Midwest rather than evangelicals in the South. They are, roughly, the “Reagan Democrats” of Macomb County, Michigan first identified by Stanley Greenberg back in the 1980’s.

It seems to me that these are the type of folks who are gravitating to Donald Trump. I need more data to confirm my hypothesis, but here are some supporting indicators. A USA TODAY/Suffolk University Poll just found that 68% of Trump’s supporters say that they would support him in a third party bid while only 18% said that they would not. As for the important first-in-the-nation Iowa Caucuses, Sen. Ted Cruz leads the polls when a tight likely voter model is used but Trump leads when a looser screen is utilized. In other words, folks who didn’t vote in the 2008 or 2012 caucuses are more likely to support Trump than voters who did participate. Trump is attracting new voters and voters who had dropped out.

His platform, if you can call it that, is pretty well designed to appeal to this demographic. He opposes the Trans-Pacific Partnership and Mexican immigration, and he promises to keep scary Muslims from entering the country. He’s not hammering on traditional social values issues that don’t interest these disaffected voters. He’s making more of a generalized racial, religious and tribal appeal. And he’s saying he’ll make America great again, with the unstated premise t......


A Facebook glitch declared all its users are dead, including Zuckerberg "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

Facebook users who logged on to their accounts discovered that their accounts turned to a “memorialized account,” due to their alleged death.

Funny as it is disturbing, but the technology can also do this and this time it has happened to Facebook. This night the Tech giant declared everyone dead due to a glitch.

The memorial feature was implemented by Facebook in 2015 to allow families access their loved ones’ social accounts after the death.

This glitch was first discovered by the employees at the Business Insider.

“A Facebook bug is displaying people as having died when visiting their profile page.” reads the post published by the Business Insider.

“Multiple Business Insider employees reported seeing the message at the top of their Facebook profiles on Friday, and the bug appears to also be affecting Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg.”

On Friday afternoon, users who logged on to their accounts discovered that their accounts turned to a “memorialized account,” due to their alleged death.


Of course, the platform considered also the CEO Mark Zuckerberg as dead.

“We hope people who love Mark will find comfort in the things others share to remember and celebrate his life.”  reads a statement on the Mark Zuckerberg’s profile.

Now imagine the impact on the visitors of the FB pages of their friends or popular individuals.

The colleagues at THN reached out to the company for an explanation:

“For a brief period today, a message meant for memorialized profiles was mistakenly posted to other accounts. This was a terrible error that we have now fixed. We are very sorry that this happened and we worked as quickly as possible to fix it.” a Facebook spokesperson told THN.

But Facebook is magic, and he has given us new life once it has solved the problem.

We resurrected!

Let’s remind that users can opt to have their account completely delete after their death or turn into a memorial...

Impeach Obama Before He Can Start World War III "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"


impeach obama2

President Obama renewed bombings, yesterday, in Syria, that will potentially put American forces at odds with the Russian military.

Why would Obama ever think to expand the war in Syria to dangerous levels? It is clear to many that he is intent on started World War III prior to leaving office. Otherwise, he would simply leave the Syria mess to President-elect Donald Trump.

What other nefarious tricks does Obama have up his sleeve that he plans to unleash upon America before his tw0-term reign of terror is completed? Will he find a way to negate the election results and stay in office? Count me in as a growing number of people that believe that Obama needs to be immediately impeached by a special session of Congress before he can do further damage to this country. What would the impeachment charges consist of?

The following short video addresses many of these questions.

America’s Streets Will Run Red with Blood-Mike Adams and Dave Hodges "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"




I recently interviewed Mike Adams from and about this reaction to the election of Donald Trump to the Presidency and what he thinks lies ahead.

Mike Adams has been right on the money, all along about what was going to take place in the campaign. He was among the first to state that Trump was going to pull of this major upset victory over America’s biggest criminal to ever seek political office, Hillary Clinton. However, Mike’s next set of predictions are down right frightening. Mike Adams, unequivocally states that America’s streets will run red with blood.

If yesterday, is any indication, the George Soros led thugs are doing their best to disrupt America and plunge us into a bloody civil war where it will not be safe to go out into the street.

This is a terrifying set of scenarios. Please make this go viral and remain in prayer about the safety of America and Donald Trump. Here is the complete story and details.

From daily The Morning Star in Britain:

South Korea: Global trade union leaders join protest against Park

Saturday 12th November 2016

INTERNATIONAL trade unions will join protests today against the South Korean government’s crackdown on the labour movement.

A delegation of global union leaders will join today’s mass protests to demand the release of six national union officials who were jailed in 2015 as well as the resignation of scandal-embroiled President Park Geun Hye.

The delegation, which includes IndustriALL general secretary Valter Sanches, Building and Wood Workers International general secretary Ambet Yuson and International Transport Workers Federation (ITF) assistant general secretary Rob Johnston, met on Friday with the imprisoned trade unionists.

The ITF said Korean unions are fighting government plans to accelerate privatisation, further casualise the workforce and introduce a performance pay system that it claims is discriminatory and divisive.

Greg Palast: 2016 Election Stolen — GOP Crosscheck Purged One Million Blacks to Give Donald Trump a Thin Edge in Arizona, Michigan, North Carolina "IndyWatch Feed War"

Greg Palast

Greg Palast

The Election was Stolen – Here’s How

On Tuesday, we saw Crosscheck elect a Republican Senate and as President, Donald Trump.  The electoral putsch was aided by nine other methods of attacking the right to vote of Black, Latino and Asian-American voters, methods detailed in my book and film, including “Caging,” “purging,” blocking legitimate registrations, and wrongly shunting millions to “provisional” ballots that will never be counted.

The system, called Crosscheck, is detailed in my Rolling Stone report,
The GOP’s Stealth War on Voters,” 8/24/2016.

Crosscheck in action:  
Trump victory margin in Michigan:                         13,107
Michigan Crosscheck purge list:                           449,922

Trump victory margin in Arizona:                           85,257
Arizona Crosscheck purge list:                            270,824

Trump victory margin in North Carolina:               177,008
North Carolina Crosscheck purge list:                   589,393

What about those exit polls?
Exit polls are the standard by which the US State Department measures the honesty of foreign elections.  Exit polling is, historically, deadly accurate. The bane of pre-election polling is that pollsters must adjust for the likelihood of a person voting.  Exit polls solve the problem.

But three times in US history, pollsters have had to publicly flagellate themselves for their “errors.”  In 2000, exit polls gave Al Gore the win in Florida; in 2004, exit polls gave Kerry the win in Ohio, and now, in swing states, exit polls ga...

Lisbon's Web Summit: AI Not Without a Dark Side "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

But as the technology evolves, experts are cautioning about the potential threats AI could pose in the future.

"AI could be used to deal with particular issues around privacy and surveillance and things like this," Antoine Blondeau, chief executive of Sentient Technologies, told Al Jazeera at the Web Summit in Lisbon.

"That would bother me a lot and it would bother others.

"So yes, it can be used for bad outcomes. It's incumbent on us to make sure it's not concentrated in the hands of people who can implement this without checks and balances."

Stephen Hawking, Nobel Prize winner and world-renowned physicist, drew attention to the dark side of AI last month.

"Alongside the benefits, AI will also bring dangers like powerful autonomous weapons and new ways for the few to oppress the many," Hawking said.

"It will bring great disruption to our economy and in the future AI could develop a will of its own."

For the moment artificial intelligence poses no immediate or obvious threat, but experts say it is a matter of time and work needs to be done now.

‘Prediction professor’ who called Trump’s big win also made another forecast: Trump will be impeached "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

Prof. Allan Lichtman was one of the few professional prognosticators to call a Donald Trump win – and now he has another prediction. (Peter Stevenson/The Washington Post)

Few prognosticators predicted a Donald Trump victory ahead of Tuesday night. Polls showed Hillary Clinton comfortably ahead, and much of America (chiefly the media) failed to anticipate the wave of pro-Trump support that propelled him to victory. But a Washington, D.C.-based professor insisted that Trump was lined up for a win — based on the idea that elections are “primarily a reflection on the performance of the party in power.

Allan Lichtman uses a historically based system of what he calls “keys” to predict election results ahead of time. The keys are explained in-depth in Lichtman’s book, “Predicting the Next President: The Keys to the White House 2016.” In our conversations in September and October, he outlined how President Obama’s second term set the Democrats up for a tight race, and his keys tipped the balance in Trump’s favor, even if just barely.

At the end of our September conversation, Lichtman made another call: that if elected, Trump would eventually be impeached by a Republican Congress that would prefer a President Mike Pence — someone whom establishment Republicans know and trust.

“I’m going to make another prediction,” he said. “This one is not based on a system; it’s just my gut. They don’t want Trump as president, because they can’t control him. He’s unpredictable. They’d love to have Pence — an absolutely down-the-line, conservative, controllable Republican. And I’m quite certai...

Where to Turn? "IndyWatch Feed"

Many people awoke this week with a new understanding of the dangers that face our common life together. We must redouble our efforts to abolish war.

Credit: Hakim Young/Voices for Creative Nonviolence.

In July 1941, Albert Einstein, ten months a US citizen, wrote to Eleanor Roosevelt asking her as First Lady to raise with the president the matter of lifting bureaucratic hurdles so that Jewish refugees threatened by Hitler’s final solution could be granted entry into the U.S. “I know of no-one else to whom to turn for help,” he wrote. But the U.S. government chose not to heed Einstein’s appeal. The following year, some 2.7 million Jews—nearly half of all Jewish victims of the Holocaust—were annihilated.

Throughout 2016, as millions of people faced First-world refugee policies with consequences ranging from the cruel to the brutal to the lethal, it has seemed increasingly unlikely that any U.S. voice—save perhaps U.S. citizens’ in unlikely unison—could  sway the White House to give comfort to those fleeing the chaos that U.S. wars have sown in Iraq and Afghanistan.

“We need to have people who mean something to us,” Bernard Cooke once wrote, “People to whom we can turn knowing that being with them is coming home.” His words make me think of Zekerullah, a coordinator of the Afghan Peace Volunteers’ “Street Kids School.” He recently stood in front of the dried up, stench ridden, polluted Kabul River, filming a video encouraging indigenous activists at Standing Rock never to give up, even in the face of armed police, and never to let what happened to the Kabul River befall their beautiful Missouri.

Kabul is the safest place in Afghanistan, a “Ka-bubble” governed in partial, fragile security by the U.S.-allied local government. The Afghan Peace Volunteers, mainly based in Kabul, are no strangers to fear, penury, loss and the dangers of living in a war zone. Yet instead of exacerbating divisions, they have befriended child laborers, street vendors and trash collectors by creating a school which now serves 100 children. This enables them to catch up with the state schools’ math and language curriculum while compensating their families with monthly donations of rice and oil.

Chelsea Plans New Diego Costa Deal, As Atletico Madrid Fights To Get Him Back "IndyWatch Feed Africa"

Chelsea want to tie Diego Costa down to a new contract on the back of his impressive start to the season. The Blues hope to discourage interest from his former club Atletico Madrid.

Know Your Player: Diego da Silva Costa was born 7 October 1988, in Lagarto, Sergipe, Brazil. He is a professional footballer who plays as a striker for English club Chelseaand the Spanish national team. 

He has been described by pundits as a talented striker whose main attributes are his physicality, goalscoring and ability to keep possession. Costa has been criticised and punished for several confrontations with opponents.

He began his career with Braga and Penafiel in Portugal and was signed by Atlético Madrid in 2007. He was loaned back to Braga, and then to Celta de Vigo and Albacete before being sold to Real Valladolid in 2009. He returned to Atlético the following season and went on to play a key role in their attack, scoring 27 goals as they won the league title in 2014, and then joined Chelsea for £32 million. He scored 21 goals in his first season in England, winning the Premier League and League Cup.

Costa is originally Brazilian and was naturalized through residence in his seven years in Spanish football. Internationally, Costa played twice for Brazil in 2013, but later declared his desire to represent Spain, having been granted Spanish citizenship in September 2013. He made his debut for his adopted nation in March 2014, and represented them at the 2014 FIFA World Cup.

Trump says: 'US should be focused on fighting ISIS' instead of pursuing regime change in Syria "IndyWatch Feed World"

US President-elect Donald Trump has confirmed that he will most likely abandon the Obama administration policy on Syria to seek a possible rapprochement with Russia on the issue of Assad. "I've had an opposite view of many people regarding Syria," the 70-year-old Republican told the Wall Street Journal in his first interview since the election. From the start of the Syrian war, Barack Obama's foreign policy has been focused on the support and training of the so-called "moderate" rebel groups who were supposed to defeat Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) terrorists, and survive to eventually overthrow Assad. That approach became deadlocked this year when Washington failed to honor its obligations under an agreement with Moscow to separate their moderate rebel forces from internationally-recognized terrorists. Trump, on the other hand, said on Friday that the US should be focused on fighting Islamic State, instead of pursuing regime change in Syria. "My attitude was you're fighting Syria, Syria is fighting ISIS, and you have to get rid of ISIS. Russia is now totally aligned with Syria, and now you have Iran, which is becoming powerful, because of us, is aligned with Syria... Now we're backing rebels against Syria, and we have no idea who these people are."

Transparent Rocket Engine "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

Rocket engines are undeniably cool. Experiencing the roar, seeing the fire, and watching the rocket blast off into the sky… what else can you ask for? Well, for [NightHawkInLight], a transparent rocket body is the answer.

Based on previous work by [Applied Science], he uses an acrylic rod as the rocket body and as the fuel. Bring a flame into the acrylic, apply oxygen from a canister at the other end of the body and voilà! The rocket engine starts nicely, and even better, the intensity of the burn can be controlled via the amount of oxygen provided.

The construction is straightforward, just drill a hole in the acrylic rod, tap a thread at one end, and attach a brake line that goes to the oxygen canister. As he explains, in solid rocket engines the fuel and oxidizer are mixed together. A typical recipe in amateur rocketry, known as rocket candy, is a mixture of sugar (as the fuel) and potassium nitrate (as the oxidizer). In a hybrid rocket engine like this, the fuel and the oxidizer are separated from each other and they only mix in the combustion chamber. In this case, the combustion chamber is the fuel itself!

While this rocket engine may not very efficient nor produce a large thrust, it is definitely a great attention-getter.  [NightHawkInLight] did a great job with this video as it has great educational value for those interested in rocketry. Other ways of building rocket engines at home include this PVC pipe version, or even a 3D printed one.

General strike begins over 20-year spending freeze

Saturday 12th November 2015

EIGHT Brazilian trade union federations led a general strike yesterday in protest at unelected President Michel Temer’s austerity “reforms.”

Protests were held in at least 19 of Brazil’s 26 states against congressional Bill PEC 241, which will freeze public spending for the next 20 years.

Main union federation the Unified Workers Central (CUT) — allied to the Workers Party (PT) — and the smaller CGTB and CTB were among the organisations leading the national walkout.

CUT general secretary Sergio Nobre attacked government plans to cut wages, privatise public-sector companies and utilities, hand over the huge “pre-salt” marine oil reserves to transnationals and slash investment in essential public services such as health and education.

“With these neoliberal initiatives, the working class must shoulder the costs of a regressive and authoritarian fiscal adjustment policy which, as we have come to show, constitutes the real objective of the coup against the constitutional president Dilma Rousseff,” said Mr Nobre.

Brazil’s congress passed legislation on Thursday abolishing the minimum 30 per cent government stake in oil-drilling operations.

Canadian design review for StarCore HTGR "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

Canadian reactor designer StarCore Nuclear has applied to the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) to begin the vendor design review process for its Generation IV high temperature gas reactor (HTGR).

Montréal-based StarCore, founded in 2008, is focused on developing small modular reactors (SMRs) to provide power and potable water to remote communities in Canada. Its standard HTGR unit would produce 20 MWe (36 MWth), expandable to 100 MWe, from a unit small enough to be delivered by truck. The helium-cooled reactor uses Triso fuel — spherical particles of uranium fuel coated by carbon which effectively gives each tiny particle its own primary containment system — manufactured by BWXT Technologies. Each reactor would require refuelling at five-yearly intervals.

StarCore describes its reactor as “inherently safe”, with a steep negative thermal coefficient which eliminates the possibility of a core meltdown. The use of helium — which does not become radioactive — as a coolant means that any loss of coolant would be “inconsequential”, the company says. The reactors would be embedded 50 metres underground in concrete silos sealed with ten-tonne caps.

UN report says robots threaten two thirds of jobs in developing countries "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

In the past, the United Nations has considered the threat posed by weaponized AI, but now the body is looking at a more mundane, but still important, robot invasion. A report from the latest UN Conference on Trade and Development has outlined how the increasing use of industrial automation is impacting jobs in developing countries, and what strategies may help in overcoming the problem.

Robots taking over human jobs has been a concern for decades, but those concerns generally focus on developed countries. The report points out that developing countries in Africa and Latin America may be at greater risk of having their industrialization slow down, since the increasing use of robots is eating into the low-cost labor advantage that developing countries have traditionally held. Up to two thirds of those occupations may be at risk.

Another issue is the trend of “reshoring.” Functioning as opposite of offshoring, reshoring sees companies move their labor operations back to developed countries, to be carried out by robots or automated systems. While it has the potential to disrupt developing countries from industrializing, the report notes that reshoring has so far been slow-paced, and hasn’t undermined the continued offshoring.

Sister Wangi, who works as a senior nurse in the critical care unit of the Port Moresby General Hospital is thankful to the sponsor, for the great opportunity to undergo overseas training for the first time. “It will be a new experience for me to gain new knowledge and I am happy and proud to be part of the training. When I return my goal is to support the cardiac team of the hospital and help improve the cardiothoracic nursing care of heart patients” Sister Wangi said.

Sister Boie, who also works in the critical care unit said it was a great opportunity to expose to new knowledge and experience. “Thank you, Operation Open Heart Foundation, for the great opportunity. I will do my best, and when I come back, I will teach other colleagues what I have learned so we can work as a team to contribute to the cardiac team and improve heart service of PNG”, Sister Boie said.
Technician, Mr. Norman Kambo who has performed anesthesiology for 16 years and perfusion for three years said “when you have a perfusionist it is a complete heart surgery discipline, when performing Operation Open Heart, It is a technical area where a skilled and trained person controls the flow of blood into patient’s body when undergoing OOH surgery with the use of artificial heart and lung machine. In previous years of OOH, the procedure was performed voluntarily by our overseas counterpart. Now it’s time we take over and do it ourselves. I am thankful for this second round of training; it will give me the confidence to perform it myself, and I am prepared to take the challenge, Mr. Kambo said.


Has Trump Already Killed Off TPP? "IndyWatch Feed World"



Picked up from Rebekah Roth’s Bookface group:
Rebekah Roth Reveals News & Current Events:

Published on 10 Nov 2016
Probably not a coincidence that shortly after President-elect Donald Trump’s first official visit to the White House & extended private sit-down with Obama, the Internet exploded with excitement over news that Obama has declared the TPP (Trans-Pacific Partnership) dead, reversing his earlier plan to push for TPP passage before leaving the White House in January. Awesome first deal for us, Mr. Trump. Almost everybody – honest Republicans, honest independents, honest American workers, and honest policy analysts – thought the TPP was a bad idea.

NPP: I missed this reversing announcement, but welcome it if true.



A Long View of Shareholder Power: From the Antebellum Corporation to the Twenty-First Century "IndyWatch Feed Economics"


AS: Harwell Wells is a professor at the law school at Temple University. Since his research is mainly published in law journals, it isn’t well known among business historians, even though it deals with really important issues that interest many member of the business history community. I’m therefore going to promote his paper, A Long View of Shareholder Power: From the Antebellum Corporation to the Twenty-First Century, here.



For most of the twentieth century the conventional wisdom held — probably correctly — that shareholders in America’s large corporations were passive and powerless and that real power in a public corporation was wielded by its managers. Beginning in the 1980s, however, shareholders in the form of institutional investors started to push for a greater say in corporate decision-making. In the twenty-first century, hedge funds have upped the ante, fighting for major changes in corporations whose shares they own. Once-imperial CEOs have now become embattled, as they fight, but often lose, against activist shareholders demanding policy changes, new dividends, board representation, and even the sale or break-up of corporations. In short, things have changed. This Article situates the present-day rise of shareholder power by taking a long view over the previous two centuries, moving beyond traditional accounts to reach all the way back to the beginnings of the American business corporation in the early nineteenth century, then following the story of shareholder power up to the present day. This broad view reveals the complicated and shifting nature of shareholder power, documenting how periods of greater shareholder power were interspersed with periods where shareholders had little power, how the focus of shareholder power has moved from controlling shareholders to autonomous managers, and how shareholder power has ebbed and flowed across the last two centuries. It thus not only provides the backsto...

Matthew Ward -- US Presidential Election 11.11.16 "IndyWatch Feed World"

With loving greetings from all souls at this station, this is Matthew. We are going to share with you what we have been observing in Earth’s energy field of potential and what Earth’s monitors in Nirvana report about the United States presidential election. In our last message we said that more scenarios around the election could develop, and indeed that did happen, but not in ways that could have been anticipated.

As we speak about the players involved, we ask you to please remember what we have said many times—never is our interest in our Earth family politically motivated and never do we judge any of you.

It is not only people in the United States who have the most to gain or lose by who becomes their president. The same is so for the Rockefeller faction of the Illuminati. Their heavy influence on Wall Street and in the nation’s government is due in large part to Bill and Hillary Clinton, who cooperate with that secret society; formerly among the few at its peak, when they saw its global control waning a decade or so ago, they established their own power base and funding sources. However questionable the Illuminati may deem Donald Trump’s campaign promises, they know he is “his own man,” a person they could not control.

During the weeks leading to the election, the energy of voters’ anger and distrust surrounding Mrs. Clinton and Mr. Trump increased to such an extent that it started drawing unto itself the streamers of all the scenarios, each of which had the potential to lead Bernie Sanders into the presidency. [The scenarios are described in the August 19, 2016 message.] What would have transpired in orderly fashion as the streamers ran their well-defined courses instead became an energy hodgepodge that could be likened to an octopus flailing in a sea of confusion. Energy is neutral, it simply flows in the direction set by intent. In this case, intent was to influence the election outcome, and the employment of various ways—some at odds with others—eventually created the octopus.

Clinton supporters in the Democratic National Committee maneuvered to Mrs. Clinton the votes in critical primaries that actually were won by Bernie Sanders; thus, it was she instead of the voters’ choice who became the Democratic party nominee.

As for the FBI’s investigation into Mrs. Clinton’s hacked emails, Director James Comey bowed to pressure from Bill Clinton and other Illuminati to conclude that national security had not been compromised and using a personal server is not an indictable offense. The finger was pointed at Russia for the hacking incident.

Vladimir Putin was justified in claiming that was not Russia’s doing. Individuals in the FBI and other intelligence agencies who know the Clintons’ criminal history released the emails—they felt the public had a right to know the truth about Mrs. Clinto...

According to a California lawsuit filed and dropped (temporarily) in May of 2016...

"Katie" was 13 at the time Donald Trump allegedly raped her. She says that Trump treated her as a 'sex slave' over a four-month period.

Katie says that Trump took her virginity.

Katie says that Trump threatened to harm her or her family if she didn't comply.

Katie says that she and a third 'sex slave', also aged 13, gave Trump naked, sexually charged massages.

'The Plaintiff Katie Johnson, was enticed with promises of money and a modeling career to attend a series of underage sex parties ... attended by Defendant, Donald J. Trump.'

The lawsuit states that a New York 'party planner', who spent ten years working for Epstein, is willing to give testimony in support of Katie Johnson.

Jill Harth, who claimed that Trump tried to rape her.

According to the lawsuit:

'Scores of teenagers and pre-teen girls' were 'used as sex slaves by Trump'. according to the paperwork.

Katie Johnson, was forced to manually stimulate Defendant Trump with her hand on his erect penis until he achieved sexual orgasm,.'

Katie was forced to 'orally copulate' Trump.

Katie was forced to perform 'an unnatural lesbian sex act' for Trump with a fellow minor aged 12.

Katie was tied to a bed by Trump and 'forcibly raped' by Trump.

Also according to the lawsuit, Donald Trump was a known associate of Ghislaine Maxwell, daughter of the 'Mossad agent' Robert Maxwell.

Ghislaine reportedly supplied young girls to Trump's close friend Jeffrey Epstein.

Donald Trump said of his close friend Jeffrey Epstein: "I've known Jeff for fifteen years. Terrific guy.

"He's a lot of fun to be with.

"It is even said that he likes beautiful women as much as I do, and many of them are on the younger side.

'Like Trump Like Obasanjo'

''On the morning of Saturday the 20th of February, 2016, I was having breakfast at Eko Hotel with a friend of mine, Reno Omokri and one of the top Democratic Party strategists in the US and an argument ensued. Omokri said Trump would go all the way while the American said he was not going anywhere. I joined the conversation by saying that Trump is a phenomenon and no one knows how far he will go.

Today, I sit here writing this piece pleasantly stunned that what the mainstream media, what the establishment and what the powers that be said could never happen has happened due to this phenomenal man's belief in himself when others did not believe in hm.

When Our Neighborhoods Have Gone Global "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"



As we cheer the election of a new President, the highly successful entrepreneur and businessman Donald Trump, having averted the advance of global communism and global citizenship, we must not forget the massive damage that has already occurred in our country and around the globe, involving the much debunked manufactured global warming turned into a profitable climate change industry worth trillions, accomplished through the non-stop work and indoctrination of the United Nations Agenda 2030, an onerous plan which has infiltrated every aspect of our society, limiting our freedoms and controlling every facet of our lives under the guise of “sustainable development.”

One month after the establishment of the United Nations, UNESCO was created by its first director, Julian Huxley.  UNESCO’s first task was to teach the world’s school teachers how to indoctrinate their students to become citizens of the world. Judging by the amount of global citizenship preparedness advertised by colleges and universities in the U.S. today, UNESCO has been highly successful.  Their materials on the topic of “Toward World Understanding,” brainwashed many generations in schools around the globe that “nationalism was bad, and had to replaced with the idea of world citizenship.” (UNESCO Publication 356,

New Orleans Protesters Write ‘Die Whites Die’ On Monuments "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"



Most of us do not think about the massive racial divide that our parents faced in the ’60s & ‘70s. We never suffered such riffs as we grew up and went to school. But, there seems to be an undercurrent of rage left over from that violent and hateful past.

It is as if a deep scar has been ripped open to reveal that the flesh had not actually healed. Many will talk about the many adverse effects of the Obama administration, but the largest may well be the effect his presidency has had on race relations.

Now, in the wake of a Trump victory, many have taken to the streets to protest. Whether they failed to vote because they believed that Trump could never win, or that they simply hate our political process, these people wanted to show their dissatisfaction. But, we have to ask why the violent side of these protests was not covered by the media.

Breitbart reports:

What started as a protest against President-Elect Donald Trump soon turned to violent riots where one of New Orleans’ most famous monuments was covered in graffiti and glass windows were shattered out of a nearby bank.

Hundreds showed up to denounce the election of Trump–but despite media reports of a peaceful gathering, the crowd grew increasingly hostile and violent, according to Breitbart Texas sources on the ground.

Other phrases like “No Trump, no KKK” were used to vandalize surrounding areas, as well as the threatening phrase “Die whites die” and “F*ck Trump”.

This is not simply an outpouring of emotion over the election results. This is rage against a particular group of people. It seems that the silent white majority finding its voice Tuesday night has awakened this rage.

The question is how far it will go b...


Internet Pirates More Likely to Pay Than Law-Abiding Counterparts "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

Each year, The Internet Foundation In Sweden (IIS) produces a report titled ‘Swedes and the Internet.’ As its name suggests, the report aims to shine light on how people behave online.

Covering issues from social media to smartphones, gambling, and of course, content consumption and file-sharing, the survey of 3,000 citizens aged 11-years-old and up has provided interesting insights in previous years. 2016 is no different.

“We continue to use the Internet to listen to music and watch movies. Eight out of ten listen to music and just over six out of ten watch movies. This is most popular among the young where almost everyone is doing it,” the report reads.

“Youtube is the most popular site for all ages. It begins in the pre-school years and almost all four-year-olds are using Youtube, but also the oldest are frequent users.

“With the arrival of streaming services more have begun to pay for music and film, but nevertheless file-sharing remains around 20 percent of the population, which it has done for almost ten years.”


But while the survey indicates that peer-to-peer file-sharing has remained static, other areas of unauthorized content consumption have been on the increase. Notably, web-based streaming services are gaining traction, particularly among lower age groups.


But of course, people obtaining content for free is only part of the puzzle. People paying for official online services has been on the increase since their inception. In 2011, for example, 15% of the population streamed music. That had increased to 38%, 42% and 44% in 2014, 2015 and 2016 respectively.

In 2015, after a late start for video, 28% were subscribing to a Netflix-like service and this year that figure reached 38%. Roughly speaking, four-out-of-ten now pay for a music or video streaming service but it is the young (and traditionally the most likely to pirate) who are the most enthusiastic customers.


In fact, IIS says that those who engage in illegal file-sharing and unauthorized streaming are also more likely to pay.

“File-sharers previously bought at least as many CDs as those who do not file-share and today we can see that it is more common for file-sharers to subscribe to...

Muslim “Refugee” Charged with 20 Murders in Austria "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"



How many like him have entered the West? How many will Obama allow into the US before he goes? This jihad murderer was a member of one of Obama’s partners in Syria, the “Free Syrian Army.” That tells you everything about his “vetting” process.

Thank G-d we elected Trump. He knows what’s what. I now, for the first time in years, wake up everyday feeling safer — for the first time in years.


“Austria charges Syrian rebel with 20 murders,” The Local, November 10,  2016:

Austrian prosecutors have charged a member of a Syrian rebel group with 20 counts of murder for allegedly executing wounded government soldiers in his home country.
The 27-year-old man was arrested in a refugee shelter in western Austria in June after being denounced by a fellow Syrian.

At first he admitted to the 2013-2014 killings in Homs and the surrounding region but later retracted his confession, a spokesman for public prosecutors in the Austrian city of Innsbruck told AFP.

The suspect, a member of a unit of the Free Syrian Army (FSA), faces life in prison if convicted. He will go on trial early next year.

The prosecutors were able to bring charges against the man under an international counterterrorism agreement, which is intended to prevent political murders from remaining unpunished if a criminal flees abroad.

General Motors to Lay Off 2,000 Employees in Ohio and Michigan "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

General Motors plans to lay off 2,000 employees at two U.S. auto plants in early 2017, the automaker said on Wednesday.

GM's Lordstown, Ohio and Lansing, Michigan plants build slow-selling cars sold by Chevrolet and Cadillac. GM said it will furlough the employees when it cuts the third shift at both plants in January.

GM says the furlough is a response to what the company believes will be a continued shift from cars to crossovers and trucks. The Lordstown plant builds the compact Chevrolet Cruze, whose U.S. sales through October were down 20%. The Lansing Grand River plant builds the Cadillac ATS and CTS, whose sales were down 17% through October.

LAGOS NOVEMBER 12TH (URHOBOTODAY)-Seven residents were reportedly abducted and houses torched in Ayama, Udu council area, Delta state as the community’s clash with neighboring Isaba, Warri South West council, escalated yesterday.
A security source however denied report of burning of houses in Friday’s incidence, confirming that the hostages abducted have been rescued and kept in secure custody as security operatives moved into the troubled spots.

The Delta police command through the Assistant Commissioner of Police, Warri Area Command, Mohammed Mu’Azu, confirmed that armed men from Isaba, an Ijaw community reportedly shot and killed Obruche Sunday, a youth of Ayama (Urhobo) when hostility started between the two neighbors on Thursday. Mu’Azu further confirmed that the conflict resulted from Ayama’s refusal to allow oil thieves moving illegally refined oil products from Isaba to navigate through their community.
In the escalated hostilities yesterday, Isaba youths were said to have extended the attack beyond Ayama to other Udu coastal hamlets including Epani, Ogogho and Onyobru.
Wisdom Onatomre, youth leader of Aladja, clan head to the four attacked communities said, “Seven people from Ayama have been held hostage since yesterday from about 3pm to 4pm. Several houses in about 4 communities have been burned. No life was lost in the midnight attacks and those displaced are taking refuge in Ajadja now.
“The military men came here yesterday and told us that there should not be any reprisal. Now see what has happened to our people while we were standing still and our people are still there being held hostage.”
Moses Ogugu, Isaba Youths President, In denial of the Udu communities’ claims said, “Isaba did not go to attack Ayama, we can’t attack our people. It was Aladja people who came to attack Ayama people yesterday, that’s why that fracas happened yesterday Thursday.
“The seven people that they said were held hostage were people who were passing through river route and because of the fracas that happened yesterday afternoon, they were held hostage.



Trump pushes media out of the loop "IndyWatch Feed World"

By Tapestry


Trump traveled to Washington from New York on his private jet, breaking with

protocol by not bringing journalists in his motorcade or on his plane to document

his historic visit to the White House. Trump was harshly critical of the media

during his campaign and for a time banned news organizations whose coverage

he disliked from his events.

As scores of journalists waited to be admitted to the Oval Office to see Obama

and Trump together, they saw White House chief of staff Denis McDonough

walking along the South Lawn driveway with Jared Kushner, Trump’s son-in- law.

A handful of Trump aides trailed them.

Donald Trump helps military-industrial complex "IndyWatch Feed World"

This video from the USA says about itself:

7 September 2016

Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump outlined his plans for a major increase in defense spending at a speech at the Union League in Philadelphia.

Translated from Tomas Vanheste of Dutch site De Correspondent, 11 November 2016:

Trump’s victory, a celebration for the men of the ‘defense’ industry

His name was said zero times, but his spirit is everywhere. Today in Brussels, representatives of the arms industry and European policy makers gathered for a session of foot sex at the annual conference of the European Defence Agency.

After the election of Donald Trump the share prices of defense companies went through the roof worldwide. And here you can feel the excitement. This is the opportunity for Europe to stand militarily on its own two feet, you can hear the assembled generals, arms manufacturers, politicians and officials think.

“We are at a decisive crossroads on the path to a stronger European defense,” says Federica Mogherini, the High Representative for EU Foreign Affairs. In the background we see a picture of several attack helicopters in a dark, magical landscape.

'Sacrificing a Chicken to Moloch' — The Clinton-Podesta Email Scandal is All About SATANISM "IndyWatch Feed World"

The Clinton-Podesta email scandal is truly an astonishing and revealing exposé.

Although, to be fair to those researchers studying the dark underbelly of the New World Order conspiracy, it is more revealing than astonishing, since we have known for some time that the inner echelon of the New World Order is heavily into pedophilia and Satanism.

Now, however, there is proof in black and white in the form of the leaked emails of John Podesta, former lobbyist and Clinton campaign manager. Thanks to WikiLeaks, we now have the verified, authentic emails of Podesta.

They are replete with references to pedophilia and Satanism – although the pedophilia is couched in code language. The code is still being worked on by various independent researchers around the web.

Zimbabweans sleep outside banks as cash crisis bites "IndyWatch Feed Africa"

Al Jazeera

Harare, Zimbabwe – A large line snakes its way down a dimly-lit street, as a group of bleary-eyed men wait patiently outside a bank in Zimbabwe’s capital.

Some of them have been coming here for days, spending their nights lying on uncomfortable cardboard boxes in the hope that when morning comes, they will be able to withdraw some money amid worsening cash shortages.

“It’s painful,” a young man told Al Jazeera. “We leave our families at home. Sleep out here in the dark, in the cold. We don’t even remember what our beds feel like any more. It is disgraceful.”

Zimbabwe’s economic crisis is going from bad to worse, forcing hundreds of people to sleep outside their banks to be able to get money.

The country adopted the US dollar and South African rand in 2009 after massive inflation wreaked havoc on the economy and rendered the local currency worthless. But banks are now running out of US dollar reserves, and that is leading to massive queues.

Some banks have already limited withdrawals to just $50 a day per person.

“It’s become a way of life,” said Al Jazeera’s Haru Mutasa, reporting from Harare. “Sleeping outside the bank is the only way some Zimbabweans can make sure they get cash.”

The government has announced plans to introduce a local currency called bond notes. It hopes that the cash injection will boost exports, benefit local businesses and ease the suffering of Zimbabwe’s poor population.

But some economists warn the never-ending bank queues may not disappear anytime soon.

“Definitely, they will persist unless or until there is an inflow of capital into the country, which is unlikely,” Prosper Chitambara, an economist, told Al Jazeera.

“Without that, the queues will persist.”

Right now, the only thing most people can do is wait and try to get as much money out of their bank as possible once they manage to reach the cashier.

“More people are planning to spend another uncomfortable night in front of a...


Journalist Shot Dead in Bihar, Allegedly Over Reports on Illegal Quarrying "IndyWatch Feed Asia"

Sasaram: A journalist of a prominent vernacular daily was shot dead in Rohtas district of Bihar this morning apparently over his articles on illegal stone chips units, the police said.

The scribe, 35-year-old Dharmendra Singh, was having tea at a roadside stall at his Amra tola village where he was shot by some unidentified assailants, sub-divisional police officer Alok Ranjan said.

The assailant pumped bullets in Singh’s stomach from point-blank range. Singh died on way to Varanasi, Ranjan said. He is survived by wife and a son.

The victim was working for a prominent Hindi daily at Sasaram. Ranjan said an investigation on the murder is underway.

The murder is suspected to be linked to the illegal quarrying business in Rohtas district.

The killing of another scribe, Rajdeo Ranjan, at Siwan in the same district in May last had sent shockwaves throughout the country.

South Africa – sticking with Zuma will hurt the ANC "IndyWatch Feed Africa"

Rand Daily Mail

The events of the past few weeks in South Africa, including the release of the Public Protector’s state capture report, are signs of how the country’s condition has been corroded under President Jacob Zuma’s leadership.

Given that a formidable faction still reinforces Zuma both within and outside of the African National Congress (ANC), he is unlikely to vacate power willingly. The stakes are high, particularly given that corruption charges still await him following the North Gauteng High Court’s ruling that fraud and corruption charges against him should be reinstated.

The state capture report is emphatic in its claim that there appears to be a conflict of interest between Zuma’s official duties and private interests. It states that Zuma has used his official position to “extend preferential treatment to Gupta-linked businesses in the form of state contracts, business financing and trading licenses.”

It seems a shade of malfeasance follows Zuma.

Madonsela’s report is essentially about how the country’s institutional framework has been undermined. It details serious breaches of a number of laws including the Members Executive Ethics Code, the Public Finance Management Act, Prevention and Combating of Corrupt Activities Act and Income Tax Act.

At its core, the report is also about governance. After all, it was sparked by claims that Zuma’s cronies are the ones who make – or promise – cabinet appointments, suggesting the president is a proxy of influential business elite.

It also pieces together a web of relationships that binds together some of the key actors in businesses associated with the Gupta family, executives and board members of state-owned enterprises and the president through members of his family.

There is a governance and institutional crisis that, if allowed to continue, could become an insurmountable monster.

Defects in political governance, especially Zuma’s failure to provide leadership, have induced a crisis of confidence in South Africa’s economy.

In addition institutions of state such as the National Directorate of Public Prosecution (colloquially called...

China sees Trump election as a trade oppurtunity "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

China is looking to turn the US election upset to its advantage. Chinese officials have said it will seek support for a Beijing-led Asia-Pacific free trade area. That is because Donald Trump has turned his back on the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) championed by President Barack Obama. The plan is try to get other countries on board at a regional summit in Peru later this month. China’s Vice Foreign Minister Li Baodong warned of the rise of protectionism and pledged its free trade agreement would follow World Trade Organisation rules: “China believes we should set a new and very practical working plan, to positively respond to the expectations of industry, and sustain the momentum and establish a free trade area in Asia-Pacific at an early date.” Anti-globalisation protesters opposed the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal between 12 Pacific Rim nations and which excluded China. It is set to be ratified by the end of this year by seven countries – Japan, Mexico, New Zealand, Australia, Singapore, Vietnam and Malaysia – but not the US with Trump heading for the White House. During the campaign he said: “We’re going to stand up to China, withdraw from TPP – which is another disaster – and protect every last American job.” The Obama administration saw TPP as a way of keeping China’s economic power in check. Beijing feared the US would use the deal to either force China to open markets by signing up or isolate it from other regional economies. But the election of Trump is a game changer and puts Beijing in a much more powerful trade position.     Source:


The Euro Is Murdering Europe "IndyWatch Feed Asia"

231231231231The Euro is murdering the nations and economies of the EU quite literally. Since the fixed currency regime came into effect, replacing national currencies in transactions in 2002, the fixed exchange rate regime has devastated industry in the periphery states of the 19 Euro members while giving disproportionate benefit to Germany. The consequence has been a little-noted industrial contraction and lack of possibility to deal with resulting banking crises. The Euro is a monetarist disaster and the EU dissolution is now pre-programmed as just one consequence.

Those of you familiar with my thoughts on the economy will know I feel the entire concept of globalization, a term which was popularized under the presidency of Bill Clinton to glamorize the corporativist agenda that had just come into being with creation of the World Trade Organization in 1994, is fundamentally a destructive rigged game of the few hundred or so giant “global players. Globalization destroys nations to advance the agenda of a few hundred giant, unregulated multinationals. It’s based on a disproven theory put forward in the 18th Century by English free trade proponent David Ricardo, known as the Theory of Comparative Advantage, used by Washington to justify removing any and all national trade protectionism in order to benefit the most powerful “Global Players,” mostly US-based.

The faltering US project known as Trans-Pacific Trade Partnership or the Trans-Atlantic Trade and Investment Partnership, is little more than Mussolini on steroids. The most powerful few hundred corporations will formally stand above national law if we are foolish enough to elect corrupt politicians that will endorse such nonsense. Yet few have really looked closely at the effect that surrender of currency sovereignty under the Euro regime is having.

When retiring Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., declared Friday that the election of Donald Trump “has emboldened the forces of hate and bigotry in America,” he wasn’t referring to the assassination threats against Trump and the nationwide rioting and the brutal physical assaults on the president-elect’s supporters by members of the progressive left. Calling Trump “a sexual predator who lost the popular vote,” Reid was charging, “White nationalists, Vladimir Putin and ISIS are celebrating Donald Trump’s victory, while innocent, law-abiding Americans are wracked with fear,” the Hill reported. The Democratic leader said that if Trump “wants to roll back the tide of hate he unleashed, he has a tremendous amount of work to do and he must begin immediately.” Like the reporting you see here? Sign up for free news alerts from, America’s independent news network. But it was anti-Trump protesters who took to the streets across the nation for a third straight night since Election Day in demonstrations that turned violent in many instances. In Portland, Oregon, what began as a peaceful protest of more than 4,000 people, quickly turned violent as “anarchists” threw objects at officers, vandalized local businesses and damaged cars, police told CNN. Portland police, on the department’s Twitter page, declared a “riot” due to “extensive criminal and dangerous behavior.” Meanwhile, a feature writer for the Guardian newspaper of London, Monisha Rajesh, tweeted “it’s about time for an assassination.” Another Twitter user posted that the “only” remaining question after Tuesday’s election is who will “assassinate” Trump, the New York Post reported. Other users even cited the Jan. 20 inauguration as a deadline for assassination. “Trump chose the literal worst case scenario as VP so nobody would try to impeach or assassinate him,” one user posted on Twitter. A security source told the New York paper that the Secret Service would investigate all social media postings containing credible threats. ’Organize resistance now’ Shaun King, the writer and activist known for his support of the Black Lives Matter movement, wrote in a column published Friday for the New York Daily News that fellow progressives should not wait and see what a Trump administration does but should organize resistance right now. “I fully believe that Donald Trump is going to come out on January 20 with an iron fist and begin enforcing his will on our country right away,” King wrote. “With control of Congress, this won’t be hard. Most congressional Republicans have already proven they have no backbone and are fully willing to be personally and directly insulted by Donald Trump and still get in line with him at the end of the day. Even without such control, President Obama has actually created the playbook for how the President can get stuff done wi...

Government’s Decision to Demonetise Currency Shows They Don’t Understand Capitalism: Prabhat Patnaik "IndyWatch Feed Asia"

In conversation with economist Prabhat Patnaik on the government’s decision to demonetise Rs 500 and Rs 1000 notes.

On November 8, Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed the nation at 8 pm and announced that Rs 500 and Rs 1000 notes would no longer be legal tender after midnight that night. This move was needed to tackle the “disease of black money,” he said.

Since then, their have been numerous reports of how ordinary people have been affected by the move, long lines outside ATMs and banks, and whether this move will be successful in its aims.

The Wire sat down with renowned economist and professor emeritus at Jawaharlal Nehru University Prabhat Patnaik to talk about the nature of black business, whether this decision would be effective, the troubles it has caused and will continue to cause for large sections of the population, and more.

You have written recently about the misconceptions around the idea of black money. What really is black money?

There is a feeling that black money is basically a stock of money, which is put in pillow cases or trunks or underground. That’s not the case. Black money is something which refers to a whole range of activities which are undertaken either illegally or in order to avoid taxes.

In other words, there may be, let’s say, arms trade or drug running and so on which are completely illegal activities. Alternatively, there are activities which are legal but nonetheless undeclared because they want to avoid taxes. So we have to really think in terms of black business or undisclosed business as opposed to black money. In any business, you are using money. When you use money for a greater or a less period of time, you will be holding money. That is true in any business and for black business as well.

It is not even the case that black business is carried out with cash while normal business is carried out with cheques and so on. Because normal business also requires cash transactions. So normal cash holding and black cash holding are not qualitatively two different things; and as a result to say that if we demonetise a range of currency, we will be able to catch black money is not correct because everybody th...

“Stupidity does not consist in being without ideas. Such stupidity would be the sweet, blissful stupidity of animals, molluscs and the gods. Human Stupidity consists in having lots of ideas, but stupid ones. Stupid ideas, with banners, hymns, loudspeakers and even tanks and flame-throwers as their instruments of persuasion, constitute the refined and the only really terrifying form of Stupidity.” – Henry de Montherlant, Notebooks, 1930-44

How and why did a word so relevant for our times be pushed almost to oblivion? In a world where stupidity penetrates multiple levels of government, policies and personalities; it is strange that the term coined to best describe it has actually ended up in the endangered and forgotten words books. Stupidity in governance needs to be treated as a political problem, and kakistocracy can best capture this problem.

Kakistocracy is the government of a state by its most stupid, ignorant, least qualified and unprincipled citizens in power. Kakistos means “worst” which is superlative of kakos “bad” (perhaps also related to “defecate”). Along with kratos (see -cracy) meaning “power, rule.”

The first documented example appeared in 1829 in a book called The Misfortunes of Elphin, written by the English novelist and poet Thomas Love Peacock.

They were utterly destitute of the blessings of those “schools for all,” the house of correction, and the treadmill, wherein the autochthonal justice of our agrestic kakistocracy now castigates the heinous sins which were then com...

The groundwork for the bilateral agreements signed in Tokyo and Kobe was set during Abe’s visit to India in December last year [Xinhua]

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe invited his Indian counterpart Narendra Modi on a ride aboard the Shinkansen bullet train from Tokyo to the port city of Kobe.

The ride, which comes on Modi’s second day of an official visit to Japan, is to introduce the Indian prime minister to the advanced technology of the bullet train which will be used on the 500-kilometer stretch of the Mumbai to Ahmedabad railway line.

With speeds reaching 320 kms, the Shinkasen bullet train is expected to greatly enhance rail transportation in India. However, it will not go into production before 2018 and be available starting 2023.

Abe and Modi also visited the Kawasaki plant where the train is being manufactured.

He Tweeted about his itinerary on Saturday:

The train ride comes a day after the two leaders presided over a number of bilateral agreements, most important of which is the deal to export nuclear power technology to India.

“The Agreement for Cooperation in Peaceful Uses of Nuclear Energy marks a historic step in our engagement to build a clean energy partnership,” Modi said.

Japan will now supply nuclear reactors, fuel and technology to India.

The civilian nuclear energy agreement had been delayed for six years as a number of foreign powers took issue with the fact that India – a nuclear power – had not yet signed the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT).

Japan apparently received assurances from India that it would no longer conduct nuclear tests; the last nuclear test was in 1998 and since then Delhi issued a moratarium on nuclear tests.

The NPT is an international binding agreement designed  to prevent the spread of nuclear weapons and weapons-related technology.

Centre Approves Changes in Anti-Graft Law to Protect Public Servants From Probes "IndyWatch Feed Asia"


Jitendra Singh. Credit: PTI

The Centre on Thursday approved changes to an anti-corruption law that may protect all government employees from prosecution.

According to the Times of India, the amendment to the Prevention of Corruption Act, 1988, proposes making it mandatory for investigating agencies like the CBI to take prior approval from the government before initiating investigations against public servants.

Jitendra Singh, minister of state for personnel, said that the purpose behind mandating prosecution sanction for government officers under the anti-graft law was to protect honest officers and to ensure that bureaucracy, “an essential tool of good governance,” continued to work without any fear or favour.

“We have decided to introduce the anti-corruption amendment Bill in the winter session of parliament starting on November 16. A provision for safeguarding all categories of government employees is being offered in the Bill. The changes are to ensure that honest employees are not harassed,” he said.

According to, while recommending the amendment in August, the parliamentary committee had said that in cases where a government employee is arrested on the spot for “accepting or attempting to accept any undue advantage”, the CBI and other agencies, however, do not have to seek the Centre’s approval to investigate.

2016 Election Turnout: Nearly Half Of Eligible Voters Effectively Voted For No President David Icke latest headlines

‘Nearly half of all eligible voters did not vote, according to The United States Election Project. Out of 231,556,622 in the Voting-Eligible Population (VEP), there were only 131,018,000 ballots counted. When compared with the 2008 and 2012 elections, we see almost 9 million less people voting in 2016. If you count minors and mentally handicapped people, a majority of people in this country effectively voted for no president.

E.K. Clark Slams N’Delta Militants, Says They Are Criminals, Saboteurs – Clark "IndyWatch Feed Africa"

Chief E.K. Clark

LAGOS NOVEMBER 12TH (URHOBOTODAY)-Respected Ijaw national leader, Chief Edwin Kiagbodo Clark, has described militant groups behind the recent attacks on oil and gas installations across the region as criminals and enemies of the Niger Delta people.
Speaking in his capacity as the leader of the Pan Niger Delta Elders Forum (PANDEF) at a news conference held at his Warri home, the elder statesman noted that the PANDEF would be forced to take drastic decision on those various groups making the state volatile.

While calling on the government not to be deterred by the ugly trends of bombing of the nation’s critical assets in the region, the former minister of Information urged the Federal Government to go on with the implementation of the 16-point demands presented before it by the elders during the Abuja meeting.
He noted that the continued militant activities in the region, especially the destruction of oil installations, had gone beyond matters of expression of grievances, but a calculated attempt by selfish individuals to derail the building peace process for the region.
According to him, “our boys were still boasting in the social media that they were going to attack; they will do this, do that. I was in my house when they sent to me that FG has sent troops to the creeks in a houseboat opposite Oporoza and that some boys were arrested. We intervened and those boys were released. So the question is, what do we want, what are they looking for? They are enemies of the people; they are criminals.
“The war you are fighting did not start today. You have not even waited for the dialogue to take place, and then you have other ulterior motives.
“So we will soon have a meeting of PANDEF to discuss this thing and take a position. Let me also warn that there are some politicians who are also members of the Niger Delta, who are fighting themselves, and it is not unlikely that some of these people are involved in these bombings to discredit each other.
“The recent blowing up of Trans-Forcados Pipeline operated by Nigerian Petroleum Development Company (NPDC) is no longer a matter arising from grievances, but an act design to sabotage the present peace process.
“I want to emphasise that no government sits by, and watch its national assets being destroyed. It is the innocent mem...

KENNEBUNK, Maine — Customers of the Kennebunk, Kennebunkport, Wells Water District voted Tuesday to stop adding fluoride to the public water supply.
Janice Hanson, chairperson of Campaign to Reconsider Water Fluoridation, the citizens group that sought signatures to put the issue on the ballot, said, “Voters in seven Maine communities sent a loud and clear message that they do not want fluoridation chemicals in the public water supply. Tomorrow the fluoridation equipment at the Kennebunk, Kennebunkport and Wells Water District will be unplugged and we will no longer be ingesting hydrofluorosilicic acid from the phosphate industry.”
Norm Labbe, superintendent of the water district, said Wednesday, “the fluoride feed pumps were turned off this morning at around 7 a.m. Some customers [those near our treatment facilities] will have an immediate drop in fluoride to natural background levels of about 0.25 parts per million. Within a couple weeks all customers will have that same background level of natural fluoride.”
Residents of Kennebunk, Kennebunkport, Wells, Ogunquit, Arundel, Biddeford Pool and Fortune’s Rocks and the Cape Neddick section of York voted on the referendum question that read,“Shall fluoride be added to the public water supply for the intended purpose of reducing tooth decay?” The no vote prevailed 13,385 to 6,9...

The Peculiarities of the Huge Equatorial Jet Stream in Saturn's Atmosphere Revealed "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

The atmosphere of the planet Saturn, a gas giant 10 times bigger than the Earth consisting mostly of hydrogen, has a wider, more intense jet stream than all the planets in the solar system. Winds gusting at speeds of up to 1,650 km/h blow from West to East in the equatorial atmosphere, thirteen times the strength of the most destructive hurricane force winds that form on the Earth's equator.

This huge jet stream also extends about 70,000 km from north to south, more than five times the size of our planet. There is as yet no theory capable of explaining the nature of this stream nor the sources of energy feeding it. Back in 2003 the same team warned in an article, published in Nature, of the drastic reduction in winds on the cloud level with respect to what had been observed when the Voyager space probes visited the planet.
By studying the movement of the clouds that formed the white spot (an enormous storm of about 7,000 km) and of those present in its surrounding areas, the researchers were able to obtain new, valuable information about the structure of the planet's huge equatorial jet stream. Furthermore, the researchers established the heights reached by the different atmospheric structures and determined that the winds increase dramatically the lower they go. They reach speeds of 1,100 km/h in the upper atmosphere but achieve up to 1,650 km/h at a depth of about 150 km. Furthermore, while the deep wind is stable, in the upper atmosphere the speed and width of the equatorial stream are highly changeable, perhaps due to the seasonal insolation cycle on Saturn, and their intensity is increased by the changing shadowing of the rings above the equator.

India - Cutting down permissible levels for fluoride in water proposed "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

Experts from the International Society for Fluoride Research have proposed cutting down the permissible levels for fluoride in water to better combat fluorosis.
The current tolerance level is 1 ppm which the society suggested lowering to 0.5 ppm.


White spots. "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

This is what the British Fluoride Society says about fluorosis (Why is there a society for fluoride?)

One of many enamel defects

Dental fluorosis appears as markings on the enamel surface of teeth. It is one of 90 or so 'enamel d efects' that may affect teeth, and is caused when children ingest excessive amounts of fluoride from all available source while their teeth - primary and permanent - are developing in the gums.

Mostly pearly white flecks visible only to experts under good lighting
In most cases, dental fluorosis appears as barely visible pearly white flecks on the surface of the tooth and is undetectable except by an expert. In other words, most people whose teeth are affected by fluorosis are unlikely to notice it. Nor are they likely to notice the majority of cases of fluorosis in other people.

We know different, are dentists cashing in? (Do those spots bother you? Video)
The people who will get the discolouring are those who look after their teeth by brushing three times a day.- those social deprived children who do not  will  not.

Petrobras is going ahead with plans to fire thousands of employees by 2020 [Xinhua]

In yet another challenge to President Michel Temmer’s drive to revitalize the Brazilian economy, the country’s biggest company – state-owned oil company Petrobras – reported a third-quarter loss on Friday, despite drastically reducing the value of oil fields and other assets.

Weak prices in the oil market worldwide hit the company hard resulting in a net loss of $4.9 billion in the last quarter, five times more than a year earlier.

Chief Financial Officer Ivan Monteiro told reporters that operational and cash flow trends improved – which would have lead to a largely profitable quarter without any impairments.

The company’s revenues were also hit by the weaker reais currency.

“The message we want to convey is that these impairments are non-recurring, and that we don’t expect them to happen, not at least in this magnitude, in the coming future,” Monteiro said at an event to discuss the results in Rio de Janeiro.

The company is currently going through a massive restructuring to deal with crippling debt, low oil prices, and a massive corruption investigation that has seen a number of its executives arrested.

In 2015, the company suffered record consolidated net losses of 36.9 million reais ($10.4 billion). That year, it also began a massive divestment plan worth $98.4 billion to pay down its debt, generate more cash liquidity and face the crisis sparked by low oil prices.

Petrobras is the world’s most indebted major oil firm, marred by a crippling corruption scandal that will soon lead to the transfer of its ownership to the private sector.

A number of prominent Brazilian officials, including former President Lula Da Silva, have been charged with some form of corruption or impropriety related to the Petrobras corruption probe.

Media reports suggest the government is seeking a price of $9 bln – $13 bln.

Although it is the country’s largest employer, the company is going ahead with plans to layoff 12,000 employees by 2020 in a bid to save around 33 billion reais ($9.25 billion) by 2020.

Hakai magazine — When a ship’s propeller blades rev up and begin slicing furiously through the ocean, a frothy storm erupts below. The churned seawater boils, forming millions of bubbles that snap, crackle, and pop like firecrackers. For animals in the sea below, this process—known as propeller cavitation—can be as loud as a rock concert.

As the ocean drowns in sound, the number of studies showing the harmful effects of noise on marine life has surged. And so, too, have the projections for how loud things might soon become. A new study from researchers at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology estimates that over the next 15 years, the level of ocean noise being produced by commercial ships could rise by 87 to 102 percent.

“The combined effects of increased shipping, larger and noisier ships, and longer shipping distances create a perfect storm of amplifying factors,” says Max Kaplan, lead author of the study. “Our findings highlight the acute challenge facing the world’s oceans and the value of prompt mitigation.”

Kaplan’s projections assume that the way commercial ships are designed, built, and operated will remain relatively unchanged. He notes that noise levels could be curbed if commercial shipbuilders become more willing to incorporate ship-quieting technologies.

Cozy Bear targets NGOs and Think Tanks in post-election attacks "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

Trump is the new US President, a few hours after he won the election, a hacking crew powered several spear-phishing attacks against US policy think-tanks aiming to infect their systems with a malware.

The security experts believe the attacks were powered by the notorious ATP Cozy Bear, also known as APT29 and CozyDuke. The CozyDuke is one of the groups involved in the Democratic National Committee (DNC) is considered by several security experts a group of Russian state-sponsored hackers.

According to the security firm Volexity, a few hours after the election people associated with non-governmental organizations (NGOs), policy think tanks in the US and even inside the US Government were targeted by malicious messages sent by the Cozy Bear hackers.

“Three of the five attack waves contained links to download files from domains that the attackers appear to have control over,” reads a blog post published by Volexity. “The other two attacks contained documents with malicious macros embedded within them. Each of these different attack waves was slightly different from one another.”

Vote With Your Feet "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

Gamifying life is silly, fun, and a great way to interact with those strangers who you pass everyday. Here’s one example that might just pop up along your next walk to work. It’s a way to take a very unscientific straw poll on any topic — you won’t even have to use your hands to cast a ballot.

A group called [Vote With Your Feet] has come up with a novel way of casting ballots. Simply walk down the sidewalk and through one of two doorways, each labeled with either side of a dichotomy. Each doorway is able to count the number of people that pass through it, so any issue imaginable can be polled. They already did vim vs emacs (59 to 27),  and we’d like to see Keynes vs Hayek, or even Ovaltine vs Nesquik. Users can send the machine new issues for the masses to vote on, so the entertainment is quite literally limited only by your imagination.

thumbThe physical build is well documented. Since this is used outside, the choice of a flipdot display (of course always fun to play with) is perfect for this high-contrast in any level of light. Each doorway has a break-beam sensor which is monitored by the Raspberry Pi driving the overhead display (here’s code for it all if you want to dig in).

The point of this art installation like this is to get people to interact with their environment in a novel way, which this project has accomplished exceptionally well. In 3 days, they registered over 10,000 votes which are viewable on their website. If you have a project in mind that calls for data visualization you might want to keep this in your back pocket.

We have also seen other ways that doorways can count people outside of voting, if you’re looking for any inspiration yourself.

Oh Mine! 41Years Old Man Tears 24Yrs Old Neighbour's Manhood Over Potty "IndyWatch Feed Africa"

It was a simple household scuffle, which degenerated into fisticuffs. But when 24-year-old Okechukwu Chiagba woke up that day, he did not imagine that he would nearly lose his manhood over something as mundane as a potty.

But that was exactly what happened when he engaged in a scuffle with his neighbour, 41-year-old Michael Essien, a Calabar, Cross River State indigene, over accusation of using a potty without permission.

But by the time the dust settled, Chiagba had sustained a gory tear in his manhood that put him in the hospital for more than one week.

He explained to Saturday Punch that the incident that led to his injury began at 6am that day in the apartment building in which he lived with his wife (what is called face-me-I-face-you) in Shasha, Egbeda Lagos.

Chiagba said, “That night, my wife went out to use the toilet. We normally use potties. But when she got to where she put her potty, she could not find it.

“She came back to ask me but I told her I had not seen it. She went outside to look for it and that was when she saw our neighbour (Essien) coming out of the toilet with it.

“My wife came back to report to me. I was preparing to go out and challenge the man for using my wife’s potty when my wife cautioned me not to go. She said she would prefer to go and meet the man’s wife and talk to her. I agreed and let the matter go.”

According to him, later that morning, he went to work but when he came back in the night, he saw the potty at their entrance, even though they usually kept it out of sight in a corner of the house.

Chiagba said when he asked his wife about it, she said she did not know who put it there.

He said, “I picked the potty and put it under the staircase where we usually kept it. When I was returning it, Essien blocked my way and said I should not put it there again, I asked why and he said because my wife was accusing him of using the plastic.

“I told him that if my wife really accused him, all he needed was to deny or ignore her that he really did not use it. I tried to go past him and put the potty there but he pushed me to the ground. We were about to fight when neighbours separated us.

Modi’s Demonetisation Plan Disregards Lessons from Previous Governments "IndyWatch Feed Asia"

Demonetisation aims to eradicate black money, but the move deflects attention from the core issue to a dramatic action that may fail to tackle the problem.

Self-righteousness is a convenient cloak to drape in politics. It gets more advantageous when the cape is dipped in nationalistic fervour. In his dramatic speech on the night of November 8, Prime Minister Narendra Modi repeatedly justified his action to demonetise Rs 500 and Rs 1000 currency notes by citing nationalistic reasons.

The raison d’être given for the move was patriotic rather than economic. Little explanation was given about how this step would end the scourge of the so-called black money in the long-term.

Since this move is a one-time action with no accompanying structural change to ensure compliance with the tax regime, there is an overwhelming sense that Modi’s step is little more than an incomplete idea.

“There comes a time in the history of a country’s development when a need is felt for a strong and decisive step,” Modi asserted and asked the ordinary person to “put up with difficulties for some days”. He further added, “In a country’s history, there come moments when every person feels he too should be part of that moment – that, he too should make his contribution to the country’s progress. Such moments come but rarely.”

“Now, we again have an opportunity where every citizen can join this mahayajna against the ills of corruption, black money and fake notes. The more help you give in this campaign, the more successful it will be.”

Modi’s plea to the people is also tinged with nationalism because the ‘hardship’ that he asked citizens to endure is because of India’s twin challenges – “On the one hand is the problem of terrorism; on the other is the challenge posed by corruption and black money.”

It is worth recalling that 18 years ago Yashwant Sinha argued that high denomination bank notes had little effect on...

Apalachee, Apalachicola, Appalachian . . . What your history teacher never told you

What comes out of all this is that several source peoples established colonies in Se Georgia and that this was driven by mining of some sort.  all of this is post Bronze Age as well so far as we can tell.  However one such people were from Europe and brought deer milking and likely riding as well.  they may well have been Bronze Age derived when active shipping made immigration possible.

 Appalachian turns out to be the plural of a Peruvian word and an elite group had come from Peru.  Nicely clarified.

We also remark on the discovery of an advanced peoples whose script was preserved during contact.  We are slowly developing a rich and healthy understanding of peoples met at contact.

President-elect, Donald Trump, put vice presidential running mate Mike Pence in charge of a White House transition team that also includes three of his grown children on Friday as he began the work of filling top administration jobs.

Pence replaces New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, Trump's campaign said, who remains as a vice chair of the transition effort as he deals with the fallout from the 'Bridgegate' lane closure scandal that has damaged his political standing.

The announcement came shortly after Trump aides convened at the real-estate mogul's Trump Tower in New York City to begin weighing candidates for some of the 4,000 jobs he will have to fill shortly after he takes office on Jan. 20, 2017.

Varanasi (Uttar Pradesh): Back in 2006, a number of teachers of the Banaras Hindu University (BHU) were served a notice by the then vice-chancellor Panjab Singh for attending a seminar organized at Varanasi’s Vishwa Sambad Kendra by the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS).

The notice accused the central government employees of violating the provision of Rule 5(1) of the Central Civil Services (Conduct) Rules, 1964, as it reportedly said the government “has always held the activities of RSS to be of such a nature that participation in them by government servants, who is a member of or is otherwise associated with it, is liable to disciplinary action.”

One such teacher who was served that notice was Kaushal Kishore Mishra, presently head of BHU’s political science department.

A decade later Mishra, who admits being associated with the Sangh for years, organized a two day seminar on the RSS within the BHU campus. The ‘international seminar’, held last week on the campus, drew a sizable audience of researchers, students, academics and faculty members at the BHU associated with the RSS. A few of the participants paid an entry fee of Rs 800 to attend.

Some reports suggested that the present VC G.C. Tripathi, — also closely associated with the RSS — was not too happy with him for organizing the seminar, but that did not deter Mishra. Nor did he have to worry about getting another another official show cause notice this time around.

Tripathi’s absence from the inaugural session of the seminar, titled “The Role of RSS in Nation Building: Illusion and Reality”, didn’t go unnoticed though. In his speech, Mishra said, “To hold a seminar on RSS in BHU has been my dream. It was here that Madhav Sadashiv Golwarkar taught; a shakha (RSS branch) opened in BHU in 1931. I don’t care much about who has not come here today but am...


Pollsters Missed the Call by Failing to Spot Trump's Support Among White Voters "IndyWatch Feed Tech"


It has taken me years, but i now truly appreciate the wisdom of the electoral college.  The Trump campaign did not have a fraction of the money needed to turn out the whole popular vote in order to compete with Hilary.  Thus we had a two to three percent loss in secure republican states.  This allowed Hilary to actually win the popular vote, although by a very small edge.  It was actually around 200,000 votes which is the margin in a small base.

What the electoral college system does is replace the parliamentary system without restraining its electors in congress.  what it eliminates is endless recounts that mean little except in extraordinary circumstances.  Trump has appeared to actually won 306 votes which makes any form of a recount mute hover justified locally.

I am obviously familiar with both systems and appreciate both.  By and large the parliamentary system has one serious advantage and that is that the principal leader must retain the confidence of parliament and the likes of Bill would have been tossed rather than impeached.  Even Margaret Thatcher ultimately lost the confidence of the house and in the face of WWII parliament resurrected Churchill and tossed him immediately after.

However i really do not know which is better.  I thought that neither Bush II or Obama was really up to the job but both hacked their way through in good order generally. Neither were able to resist the thirst for war among the so called neocons.  In Canada today we have Justin Trudeau who is patently a good man but truly untested who will need to rely on the stronger lights around him.  It should work well although he did make a leap of faith on the carbon tax that is now likely to be still born with trump in place..

EU Scrambles to Save TTIP Deal in 'Death Throes' Amid Trump Opposition David Icke latest headlines

‘Brussels is desperately fighting to keep alive hopes of the controversial Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) EU-US trade deal being agreed, in the face of opposition to the dying deal from newly-elected US President Donald Trump, Sputnik has been told. Trump has made clear that he is passionately opposed to free trade agreements, which — in his opinion — work against US citizens by opening up home markets to foreign workers and non-tariff trading. He is opposed to the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) between the US, Canada and Mexico, because he blames it for a loss of the US manufacturing industry. He has pledged to stymie both Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade deal — a broad agreement that included Mexico, Brunei, Chile, New Zealand, Singapore, Australia, Canada, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, Peru, the United States, and Vietnam (but not China) — as well as TTIP.’ Read more: EU Scrambles to Save TTIP Deal in ‘Death Throes’ Amid Trump Opposition


RCCG Pastor's 21Yrs Old Son, Solomon Odekunle, Stabbed To Death In Canada (Pics) "IndyWatch Feed Africa"

At about 2am on Sunday, November 6, 21-year-old Solomon Odekunle was seen stumbling out of a popular hangout, Piper’s Bar and Grill, in Ottawa, Canada, with blood gushing out of his neck.

Eyewitnesses interviewed by the police said few steps away, he collapsed on Coventry Road. He was later pronounced dead in the hospital.

According to Ottawa’s CBC News, Solomon, who was stabbed by a suspect, who has been identified as 27-year-old Joe Ndikuriyo, was the 17th victim of homicide in Ottawa since the beginning of 2016.

It was learnt that Ndikuriyo is a Burundian national.

Even though the police in Ottawa have said they were still piecing together the timeline of events that led to the victim’s death, news reports suggest that he was stabbed during a fight between Ndikuriyo and another individual over a woman.

The victim, whose father is a pastor of the Redeemed Christian Church of God in Lagos, according to residents of their neighbourhood in Fagba, Lagos, was admitted to the University of Ottawa in 2012 to study Economics.

Saturday PUNCH visited his parents’ house at the Rotimi Williams Estate, Fagba Estate on Thursday, a fenced mansion, where a domestic employee explained that Solomon’s father had travelled while the inconsolable mother had relocated temporarily from the house.

It was later learnt that the father had flown out to Canada after learning of the tragic murder of his son.

Ayahuasca goes by many names: Daime, Vegetal, Hoasca, Kamarampi, Huni … whatever you call it, this plant-based psychoactive decoction, which has been used by indigenous Amazonians for centuries to contact the spiritual world, has suddenly burst into global consciousness.

As a recent New Yorker article put it, ayahuasca is “the drug of choice for the age of kale”.

The article, which positioned ayahuasca as a hipster trend in a tone of mockery mixed with mystification, nevertheless belies the growing interest of Western scientists and rich urbanites in its medicinal and therapeutic potential, which include antidepressant, anti-anxiety and anti-addiction elements.

Does the science support the hype? As part of a small cohort of Brazilian scientists undertaking the world’s first clinical trials on ayahuasca and treatment-resistant major depressive disorder, I’m here to say: maybe, but it’s too soon to tell.

Sacred plant, sacred medicine

First, some background, which is key to understanding how ayahuasca is perceived as both a sacred plant and medicine.

This idea is shared by indigenous groups, vegetalistas (healers that use plants to treat disease) and Brazilian religions such as...

VW denies emissions fraud in Europe

11 November 2016

The emissions fraud discovered in September last year and the resulting penalties and fines, amounting to billions of euros, have already shaken the Volkswagen Corporation to its foundations. Since then, the arrogant denials of responsibility by those in positions of power in the company have driven the corporation and its 600,000 employees deeper and deeper into the abyss.

When Volkswagen CEO Matthias Müller declared in an interview in the US at the beginning of the year that the company was not conscious of any guilt and that the criminal emissions manipulation was a small “technical problem,” this was viewed as a mere public relations failure. Since then, VW has conceded that it not only “cheated,” but also swindled the authorities and customers with the help of the automatic cut-out feature for emission control.

SO SAD! Osun Poly Fresh Graduate, Who's An Orphan, Screams From Sleep, Dies After Project Defence "IndyWatch Feed Africa"

Students and staff members of the Osun State Polytechnic, Iree, have been thrown into grief following the sudden death of a fresh graduate of the institution, Felix Agandi, who died barely four days after he defended his undergraduate project.

One of Agandi’s coursemates told our correspondent on the telephone on Friday that he was dropped at his residence by one of his friends at around 10pm on Monday night.

The coursemate stated that the 27-year-old graduate of Mass Communication was an orphan, who struggled to finance his education from his national diploma days to the time he finished his higher national diploma programme.

The deceased’s neighbours were said to have rushed him to a hospital after he was heard suddenly screaming from his sleep but he was reportedly certified dead right inside the car before he arrived hospital on Tuesday morning.

He said, “We are all in a pensive mood in Iree now because of Felix’s death, who screamed from his sleep and died shortly after that.

   ''Felix was a gentle person but jovial. He was humble and hardworking. Despite being an orphan he saw himself through school. His death is an unfortunate one and this week has been one of the saddest ones in recent times in Iree.''

The remains of the Delta State-born student were said to have been buried at Ilesa, Osun State, where he lived with his siblings on the same day.

A lecturer at the Department of Mass Communication, Mr. Tope Abiola, who is also the Public Relations Officer of the institution, confirmed the death of Agandi.

He told our correspondent that the management of the school had visited the deceased’s siblings to commiserate with them.

   ''He was a cool and hardworking young man. I learnt that he was an orphan but he was focused and determined but unfortunately death snatched him away. May his soul rest in peace.''

Many aspects of the Trump and Modi electoral victories lend themselves to comparison but on one aspect there couldn’t have been a sharper divergence. While the Modi triumph after the Indian general election of 2014 was more or less anticipated by both pollsters and analysts alike – almost willed to happen by the Indian media well before the fact – Trump’s emergence as the designated 48th president of the US came as a shocker, as underlined in a timely analysis by The Wire (‘Not One Major Poll or Analyst Predicted Trump Defeating Clinton’, November 9). This failure to suss out the popular support he enjoyed does raise some uncomfortable questions about the nature of the establishment media in the US today and their lack of connect with large sections of the population.

Could it be that they were immune to the anxieties that beset white America, especially white male America, as an analysis carried in The Wire three days after the elections seemed to indicate (‘Trump Campaign Reflects GOP’s Older Politics of White Identity, Class and Gender’, November 11)? Could it even be that their repeated attempts to call out this man for the obnoxious, repulsive boor that his words and stances showed him to be made little difference for many voters, and may in fact have contributed to enhancing his appeal? Could it be that his consistent abuse of the mainstream media, his open jibes at reporters and anchors, his calls to his supp...

Three New Bird Species Discovered in Africa "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

A Texas A&M University team has discovered three never before documented bird species, and there could well be more, the team's leader said.

Dr. Gary Voelker, professor and curator of birds in the department of wildlife and fisheries sciences at Texas A&M University, College Station, headed the recent discovery of a trio of similar African birds living in close proximity, but that are different species which share no common genes.

Voelker was lead author on an article published recently in the scientific journal Systematics and Biodiversity discussing that discovery.

"The discovery of these three new species is a good example of the amount of potentially hidden diversity living in Afrotropical forests," Voelker said. "Our evidence runs directly counter to the belief of earlier research that said Afrotropical forests are static places where little evolutionary diversification has occurred.

The Earth still has more secrets it's hiding up its sleeve.

Afghanistan: Three Killed, 13 Wounded in Explosion at NATO Air Base "IndyWatch Feed Asia"

Kabul: The Taliban claimed responsibility for an explosion at the NATO air base at Bagram, north of the Afghan capital Kabul, on Saturday which local officials said killed at least three people and wounded 13 others.

The NATO-led Resolute Support mission said an explosion occurred just after 5.30 a.m. and that there had been casualties. It said force protection and medical teams were responding but gave no additional information.

Abdul Shokor Qodosi, the district governor of Bagram, said that at least three people were killed and 13 injured in the blast, which he said occurred near a dining facility.

He said the cause of the blast was unclear.

The Taliban’s spokesman, Zabihullah Mujahid, claimed responsibility for the attack in a message on his Twitter account.

Poison David Icke latest headlines

‘Everyone knows that there are psychopaths everywhere including in the fields of medicine and science. The greatest harm psychopaths as a group have engineered on the human race is through poisoning us. They figured out 150 years ago that they could make staggering amounts of money doing so without being caught. They created elaborate plans to get away with murder while living the good life. They created an illusion and so many rationalizations that the problem has escaped most peoples’ attention. Their initial goal of poisoning the human race was accomplished one drop at a time. Now it is a flood. Remembering the story with Ketchup highlights how good poisons can be, how common and innocuous they are in our lives. In the early decades, because the toxic exposures were low, the public did not see the changes in health as they occurred. Now chronic disease and cancer is all over us demonstrating how contaminated we are with chemicals, heavy metals and radiation.’ Read more: Poison

Why Donald Trump Won: What The Numbers Tell Us (And It’s Probably Not What You Think) "IndyWatch Feed National"

The Republican candidate managed to drag across blue collar voters, and Clinton won less votes from women than Obama did in 2012. Michael Brull crunches the numbers on an election that has already changed the world.

The victory of Donald Trump is catastrophic. Four years of a President who thinks climate change is a hoax. That he also wants to cut taxes and regulations on the super-rich may well mean that the planet will be cooked. Perhaps climate catastrophe will be averted by nuclear war; a risk which is impossible to gauge under Trump.

Everyone on the planet should feel anxious about Trump’s victory: this may be the end of all of us.

There is very little dispute on the Left about the awfulness of Trump’s victory. The area of dispute mostly comes from the centre-left, who have reacted with bewilderment. How on earth could they elect Trump?

It is that question which I think it is important that we face honestly and squarely.

In my previous analysis, I argued that crucial factors of Trump’s win included anti-establishment sentiment, declining support for the Democrats, and the class grievances of working class white workers in the Rust Belt.

Since then, more information on Trump’s victory has come out. I think it makes clear that these trends were crucial to Trump’s win.


Sick of the establishment

Exit polls of voters in a way present their own bias. They reflect the views of Americans who thought that voting was actually worthwhile, as opposed to those who were too disillusioned or disinterested to think it worth voting for either candidate.

With that bias in mind, consider the exit poll of 10,000 voters by Reuters/Ipsos. Of those who voted, 72 per cent agree “the American economy is rigged to advantage the rich and powerful”. 68 per cent agreed that “traditional parties and politicians don’t care about people like me”. 76 per cent agreed that “the mainstream media is more interested in making money than telling the truth”. And 75 per cent thought that “America needs a strong leader to take the country back from the rich and powerful”.

Now consider New York Times polling on voters.

When asked about the most important candidate quality, 83 per cent of Trump voters thought Trump could “bring needed change”. Only 14 per cent said Clinton was that candidate. When it came to who “Has the right experience”, 90 per cent said Clinton.

Failing medical, health, food and environmental systems expected to cause 60% hike in cancer deaths of women by 2030 David Icke latest headlines

‘The bureaucratic masterminds who inhabit positions of power – many of whom are Ivy League-educated people who anointed themselves as masters of our universe – have made a mess out of things, without a doubt. The world’s medical/health, food and environmental systems are all failing, and the evidence of this is all around us. Though humankind is supposedly at our most technologically advanced point in the history of the world when it comes to medical technology, CNN recently reported a startling statistic: By 2030, the number of women dying of cancer around the world will rise to roughly the population of Denmark – 5.5 million. That is a nearly 60 percent increase from cancer deaths in 2012, when 3.5 million women succumbed to the disease.

Maybe so 50 or 60 years ago, but not anymore. Our grandparents’ and great grandparents’ food wasn’t doused with chemical insecticides, herbicides, fungicides and other forms of pesticide that cause cancer, depression, central nervous system disorders, anxiety and dementia. Today, most grains and sugarcane get sprayed with disturbing amounts of glyphosate herbicide just before they are harvested and processed into the silos, because it dries them out and saves some production losses. Yet, glyphosate is one of the most deadly toxins to animals, including humans, and that’s been proven in lab testing time and time again.’ Read more: America is about to realize just how poisoned conventional food really is … Lab testing for glyphosate about to go ‘viral’

Dakota Access Pipeline Work Stopped As Water Protectors Storm Site; 30+ Arrested "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

From Unicorn Riot

Early Friday morning, a group of water protectors left the main Oceti Sakowin encampment and drove in a caravan to a Dakota Access Pipeline construction site on Highway 6 south of Mandan.

This site was the location of a previous lockdown action which stopped pipeline work for six hours on August 31. Construction was thought to have been completed at this site, as no machines had been active in the area for weeks. However, the morning of November 11, DAPL crews were again working at the site, which was quickly noticed by water protectors who arrived to stop them.

Some DAPL private security and a few Sheriff’s vehicles were present early on, observing the demonstration and talking amongst themselves.

A group of those who had gathered on the side of the road decided to hold a prayer walk onto the easement to join those who had already gathered around, on top of, and inside DAPL construction machines.

With the majority of North Dakota military and police forces deployed in the militarized zone around the former Oceti Sakowin 1851 treaty camp, law enforcement did not arrive in numbers until about an hour later. Unicorn Riot reporters witnessed two arrests as police pushed people to clear the area next to Highway 6.

As the police pushed the crowd south on Highway 6, it became apparent that the air had been let out of the tires on several sheriff and police vehicles.

Later in the afternoon, the Morton County Sheriff’s Department posted on Facebook that 33 people had been arrested. They also posted an image that suggests construction equipment had been damaged during the day’s events.

As these events were unfolding on the ground in North Dakota, news emerged that inside sources had tipped off reporters at Politico that the Obama administration will likely approve the final remaining easement permits for DAPL to drill under the Missouri River within the next few days, possibly as early as Monday. The Obama administration denied these claims, saying “the process is ongoing and no decisions have been made.

The anti-DAPL action coalition Mississippi Stand has repeatedly halted pipeline construction in Iowa in recent weeks. Around 2 a.m. on Thursday morning, several individuals climbed inside a section of pipeline at a DAPL site in Iowa a...

‘Something is in the air in Jerusalem and if Israel has its way it soon won’t be; the Muslim call to prayer – the adhaan – is under threat.

How South Asian Media Reported Trump’s Election Victory "IndyWatch Feed Asia"

Reportage from Afghanistan, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Nepal, the Maldives and Bangladesh.


The Western media has been full of stories about US president-elect Donald Trump’s victory – from reports on his unorthodox campaign and analyses of what happened to disbelief on the results that hardly anyone predicted.

But how did the South Asian media report on the victory of a candidate with a contentious foreign policy?


Tolonews published an article on Thursday titled ‘Question Remains Over What Trump’s Afghan Policy Will Be’. Trump’s victory raised questions, the article said, because Afghan President Ashraf Ghani was reportedly closer to Democrat candidate Hillary Clinton. With her loss, the future of Afghan-US relations remained unclear.

“Some reports indicate that Afghan president Ashraf Ghani had closer ties with the democrats rather than the republicans and even Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager John Podesta was lobbying to further promote relations between Ghani and the American officials.

The reports say that Ghani was paying $50,000 USD per month to Podesta’s firm.

An article published on the New York Times last year says that Ghani had assigned the Podesta Group to lobby for Afghanistan in the United States.

…But with Trump’s entry in the White House, it is uncertain that these lobbying could continue for Afghanistan in US.”

Former Afghan President Hamid Karzai issued a statement after Trump’s victory, reported Khaama Press. Karzai has often expressed his distrust of the US government’s interventions in Afghanistan. While congratulating Trump, he said: “With respect to the will of the American people for bring political changes, the Afghan people hope that the approach of the country towards the Afghan people and fight against terrorism will change based on the realities and coordination with the demand of the Afghan people.” He also added that Afghan people expected that US interv...


Yemenis Wrest Control of Several Villages in Saudi Arabia "IndyWatch Feed World"

(Tasnim) – Yemen’s army forces and allied fighters from Popular Committees seized several villages in Saudi Arabia’s southwestern border province of Jizan amid Riyadh’s relentless military aggression against Yemen.

On Thursday, Yemeni forces gained control over the al-Qarn and Dafinah villages in al-Khobe district, located 967 kilometers (601 miles) southwest of Saudi Arabia’s capital, Riyadh, following fierce exchanges of gunfire with Saudi troops there, a military source, speaking on condition of anonymity, said, the official Saba news agency reported.

They also managed to wrest control over a number of villages located in eastern parts of al-Bahtit military base.

During the clashes, tens of Saudi soldiers were killed or injured and six of their armored vehicles, including two Abrams tanks, destroyed, the source said.

The Yemeni troops also succeeded in seizing control of strategic al-Khobe road in Jizan, blocking roads connecting Qaem Zobayd district to al-Abadiya area.

The attack came in response to the continued aggression by Saudi Arabia and some of its Arab allies against Yemen, which started in March 2015.

The Saudi-led coalition has been launching deadly airstrikes against the Houthi Ansarullah movement in the past year and a half in an attempt to restore power to the fugitive former President Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh.

Nearly 10,000 Yemenis, including 4,000 women and children, have lost their lives in the deadly military campaign.


Henningsen: ‘US Anti-Trump Protests Similar to Soros Color Revolutions Abroad’ "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

Organized efforts are underway by Democratic Party affiliated NGO’s to try and somehow delegitimize the results of this week’s US Presidential Election. 

On the eve of the US Election before voters went to the polls, 21WIRE political affairs analyst Patrick Henningsen accurately predicted this week’s unrest when he said:

On Friday, Henningsen talked to RT International about the post-elections protests that were coordinated in part by Democratic Party ‘community organizing’ online platform Watch:

Not surprisingly, have also launched a national ‘activist’ campaign to “Abolish the Electoral College” after Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton came up short with 232 (including New Hampshire) to Donald Trump’s 306 (including Arizona and Michigan).

This Could Be Our 1989 "IndyWatch Feed World"

(FEE) – You might think that the greatest political, cultural, economic shock of our lifetimes, right here in the USA, would unleash a torrent of salient and incisive commentary. There’s been some good, some confused, some angry. But mostly what I’ve seen is a kind of mouth-open shocked.

What was once regarded as expertise lies in ruins.Here’s the problem: all the experts were wrong. I’m in the same boat as almost everyone else. We followed the cues we had – polls, betting odds, our own intuitions – but they were all misleading, and everyone underestimated the vulnerability of the status quo. Admitting this takes humility – vast oceans of it. It challenges us to throw away what we thought we knew and consider a new way of thinking.

Trump triumphed over every bit of conventional and establishment wisdom on the whole of planet earth. What was once regarded as expertise lies in ruins. Not even the people with skin in the game, those betting on the outcome, came close to being right. It’s the greatest smashing of a paradigm – a devastating crush of not only opinions but every existing establishment left, right, and center – I can imagine happening in real time.

And perhaps this is just the beginning. There could be more exciting times to come.

A Paradigm Ends

Most of us have spent the last several days just trying to get reoriented. Just last week, speaking in two states that swung the election, I spoke about a coming meltdown of the old days and the emergence of something new, hopefully a new freedom. I’ve written for several years that the old ways of politics are dying and the institutions it gave rise to are dying as well.

The institutions of government we know were built for a world that is rapidly fading away. Here’s the problem in brief. The institutions of government we know all too well were built for a world that is rapidly fading away. Their systems no longer work. And they are too costly. In times when people are watching every dollar, bargain hunting on every website, government looks ever more like a ripoff. As a result, there is an increasing disconnect between our lives and the regime under which we live.

Such a situation is not sustainable for the long term. Government is powerful, but not powerful enough to bend reality to its wishes.

The only analogy that really comes to mind is the collapse...

George Soros Sued For $550 Million By Dead Cop’s Father "IndyWatch Feed World"

The father of a Dallas policeman killed during a Black Lives Matter protest is sueing the activist organization and their financier George Soros for $550 million in damages. The father of Patrick Zamarripa filed a lawsuit in the US District Court in Dallas on Monday against George Soros, Black Lives Matter and other groups for allegedly “inciting a war on police” that led to the death of his son. “While Defendant Black Lives Matter claims to combat anti-black racism,” the lawsuit said, according to the Fort Worth Star Telegram, “the movement has in fact incited and committed further violence, severe bodily injury and death against police officers of all races and ethnicities, Jews, and Caucasians. Defendant Black Lives Matter is in fact a violent and revolutionary criminal gang.” Dallas police officer Patrick Zamarripa, 32, was on patrol July 7 this year when hundreds of people marched through downtown Dallas. Toward the end of the march, a sniper, Micah Johnson opened fire, ambushing the crowd and killing five police officers – four from the Dallas Police Department, including Zamarripa.

Kirkus Reviews praises *The Complacent Class* "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

An influential economist seeks to persuade readers that American citizens have gotten overly complacent, that a crisis point is near, and that a widespread rebellion may alter the existing order.

…In conclusion, Cowen describes how a dynamic society should look and feel, and then he shifts his pessimism about the present to a sort of ersatz optimism about the future, when current structures collapse and chaos improves American democracy.

Here is the full review.  And just one point: I know many of you claim I have not predicted much of current goings-on.  It is true I did not expect Trump to win, but you will find many other predictions in this book, most of which are looking pretty good as of today.  Typically if I am writing material into a book I do not blog it, so that the material will be fresh to all of my readers.  If you order The Complacent Class, you will find very little of it already has shown up on MR, the chapter on productivity excepted.  You could say the better the book, the more you will find a few significant gaps on this blog.  Sorry!

By Kevin Zeese and Margaret Flowers for Popular Resistance. In this moment, the movement for economic, racial and environmental justice needs be bold, clear and assertive in putting forth an agenda that will serve the economically dispossessed, those under attack by militarized police, immigrants facing detentions and deportations and demonstrate policies that ensure economic security. Where Trump is right, as in detente with Russia, the movement will support him against the neocons and humanitarian war supporters; and we will push him further for an end to war as the primary tool of foreign policy. Both parties are confronting major fissures, leadership challenges and questions about where they go from here. Their confused leadership provides an opportunity for the popular movement to fill the leadership void with policies that put people, planet and peace over profit.

Glenn Greenwald on Who’s to Blame for Trump’s Election "IndyWatch Feed World"

  The liberal class bears responsibility for the phenomena that created Donald Trump. (Evan Vucci / AP)

Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Glenn Greenwald has called out the Democratic Party and the elite class of the U.S. to reassess their role in the world’s changing political climate.

Many were shocked in June, when the U.K. voted for Brexit, but the U.S. didn’t seem to learn any kind of lesson. Pundits, politicians and mainstream media alike assumed that a Trump presidency would not actually happen.

As WikiLeaks documents showed, the Clinton camp and the Democratic National Committee and their mainstream-media friends (including organizations such as CNN) helped legitimize Donald Trump. Dubbed the “Pied Piper candidate,” he was part of the Clinton strategy to force the Republican Party to become ever more extreme.

By March, Trump had received $2 billion worth of free media exposure. Greenwald points out that in recent times, there has been a complete destruction of economic welfare for hundreds of millions of people, yet politicians, pundits and top business executives have engorged themselves with unparalleled levels of wealth from globalism, trade deals, Wall Street and war.

The response of the Democratic Party and media institutions such as MSNBC (which on Tuesday night repeated multiple times that third-party candidates were taking away votes from Hillary Clinton) is denial. Greenwald writes

… Democrats have already begun flailing around trying to blame anyone and everyone they can find — everyone except themselves — for last night’s crushing defeat of their party.

You know the drearily predictable list of their scapegoats: Russia, WikiLeaks, James Comey, Jill Stein, Bernie Bros, The Media, news outlets (including, perhaps especially, The Intercept) that sinned by reporting negatively on Hillary Clinton.

The Status of Linux Kernel Hardening "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

At the 2015 Kernel Summit, Kees Cook said, he talked mostly about the things that the community could be doing to improve the security of the kernel. In 2016, instead, he was there to talk about what had actually been done. Kernel hardening, he reminded the group, is not about access control or fixing bugs. Instead, it is about the kernel protecting itself, eliminating classes of exploits, and reducing its attack surface. There is still a lot to be done in this area, but the picture is better than it was one year ago.

One area of progress is in the integration of GCC plugins into the build system. The plugins in the kernel now are mostly examples, but there will be more interesting ones coming in the future. Plugins are currently supported for the x86, arm, and arm64 architectures; he would like to see that list grow, but he needs help from the architecture maintainers to validate the changes. Plugins are also not yet used for routine kernel compile testing, since it is hard to get the relevant sites to install the needed dependencies.

Linus asked how much plugins would slow the kernel build process; linux-next maintainer Stephen Rothwell also expressed interest in that question, noting that "some of us do compiles all day." Kees responded that there hadn't been a lot of benchmarking done, but that the cost was "not negligible." It is, though, an important part of protecting the kernel.

India’s Long History of Television Censorship "IndyWatch Feed Asia"

The Indian state has a propensity to censor regardless of the government in power. Nevertheless, the ban imposed on NDTV India is a significant escalation against the country’s free press.

Representational image. Credit: Reuters/Arko Datta

The one-day ban on Hindi channel NDTV India has refocused public attention on the government’s anachronistic power to censor television channels. This power has been used several times by many different governments but never has it been used so forcefully against a major Indian news channel. This may have been a step too far.

There is a difference between the content of speech and the manner of its carriage. Content refers to words and carriage to the medium by which the words are transmitted. Freedom of speech covers both content and carriage. But depending on the medium of its transmission – television, radio and so on – speech is regulated differently. Cable television is a particularly heavily-regulated medium and a brief background is necessary to understand why.

Government monopoly

Free speech threatens authoritarian governments. In colonised India, not only did the government control the content, it also completely dominated carriage through its exclusive monopoly over all broadcasting media. That monopoly is derived from mid-nineteenth century colonial laws to regulate telegraphs. The same monopoly manifests today through an arcane Licence Raj. No broadcasting can occur without multiple licences.

The state’s stranglehold over the content of speech was broken when the constitution recognised the right to free speech. But the government guarded its monopoly over carriage by banning everyone except itself from television and radio broadcasting. Without a medium to transmit ideas, the right to free speech was diminished.

In 1952, broadcasting minister B.V. Keskar purged the radio transmission of film music because he thought it was too vulgar. During the Emergency, Indira Gandhi abused the government’s monopoly by ceaselessly broadcasting propaganda. To avoid such capriciousness, there was a...

Trump Has Been Scrooge McDuck "IndyWatch Feed"

Remnant Review

“President Obama is a very good man. I will seek his counsel in the future.” — Donald Trump (November 10, 2016)

The honeymoon with his supporters did not last long, did it?

I began with two statements.

First, Donald Trump is not part of what is sometimes called “the conspiracy.”

Second, he will be on January 20, 2017.

We are about to see the capture of Donald Trump. It has already begun.

Instant Access to Current Spot Prices & Interactive Charts

The mainstream media are beginning to see this. By January 20, it should be clear to anybody who wants to look at his nominees for the top cabinet positions. CNN’s headline has it right: Team Trump is already filled with Washington insiders.

We have already learned that the transition team has approached Jamie Dimon, the CEO of J.P. Morgan Chase. He was offered the position of Secretary of the Treasury. Anyone who thinks that this would be an improvement over the former CEO’s from Goldman Sachs is living in a fantasy world.

The handwriting is on the wall. We can expect more of the same. We had better expect more of the same.

Just for the record, the phrase “handwriting on the wall” comes from the fifth chapter of the book of Daniel. May I remind you, that was originally written in Hebrew, and Hebrew is written from right to left. So is everything in Washington. You should also recall what the handwriting said.

And this is the writing that was written, Mene, Mene, Tekel, Upharsin. His is the interpretation of the thing: Mene; God hath numbered thy kingdom, and finished it. ekel; Thou art weighed in the balances, and art found wanting. Peres; Thy kingdom is divided, and given to the Medes and Persians (vv. 25-28).

That was a revolution. It was not just a coup d’état. Accept no substitutes.


There are two cabinet positions that really matter in every presidential administration. This goes back to Washington’s first administration. First, there is the Secretary of State. Second, there is the Secretary of the Treasury.

The other cabinet positions of importance are the Department of Defense, the Department of Justice, which determines who is going to get prosecuted, and the Department of Homeland Security, which is the real enforcement arm of the government.



Dear President-Elect Trump "IndyWatch Feed"

President-Elect Trump, more policy tweaks, more promises of more government free money and more symbolic gestures won’t fix anything.

Though I am just another powerless peon, I’d like to offer seven suggestions to President-Elect Trump and his transition team:

1. Make sure your administration is as diverse as America. No single act will give your enemies more ammo than populating your cabinet and administration with the Usual Suspects: Caucasian elites from Ivy League universities. These privileged “experts” have bankrupted the nation financially, morally and spiritually while enriching themselves and their privileged cronies.

Populate your cabinet and administration with entrepreneurially minded, honest, hard-working, forward-looking people who just happen to be African-American, Hispanic-American, Asian-American, female, gay, mixed-race, etc.

Having a cabinet that reflects the diversity of America (or just the diversity of New York City or Los Angeles County, for goodness sakes) will send a powerful message not just to the nation but to the world: America’s diversity is America’s strength.

If you want an example of how to do this, follow in the footsteps of the U.S. military. Yes, it’s imperfect, but for a large-scale voluntary institution, it’s done a lot better than most to promote a diverse spectrum of Americans.

2. Wage total war on regulatory capture and bureaucratic fiefdoms. Everyone knows federal regulations are completely out of control on several fronts. Yes, there is a need for regulations to protect the nation’s air, water and resources from despoliation, its labor force from exploitation, its food supply from unhealthy additives and foreign-sourced toxic products, and so on. These safeguard regulations should be rigorously enforced.

But K Street lobbyists and the Corporatocracy they represent have mastered the art of regulatory capture: digging regulatory moats so deep and so wide that competition cannot possibly afford to meet the regulatory burdens imposed by the central state.

Instant Access to Current Spot Prices & Interactive Charts

This is how we’ve ended up with a high-cost, ineffective, inefficient state-cartel economy.

The only way to tackle this issue is retire/sunset ALL federal regulations every few years, and require a constant streamlining to limit the number of regulations, lower the cost of compliance and ensure regulations are clearly composed in plain English.

The only way to root out corruption, collusion and regulatory capture is to require total transparency and open competition in all government functions.

3. Accredit the student, not the school/c...


An Open Letter to Young SJWs "IndyWatch Feed"

Dear SJW:

You are young in this world, likely with little knowledge of history or political theory.  The social and political movements of the past eight years – your formative years – brought forward changes you deemed progressive. Changes you truly believed would continue endlessly.

You saw Hillary Clinton as the next guiding voice, the one to take you into what your high school teachers and college professors prophesized as the promised land. It mattered little that this march forward trampled on rights of others – those still clinging to what your teachers and professors derided and termed variously as a paternalistic, misogynistic, and racist past. Your teachers and professors told you those folks (the others) were as expendable as they were out of touch. Eggs to be cracked, as justified by your ideological masters.1 According to the accepted canon, it is a sin to be a hater, unless that hate is directed at “them.”

Throughout your relatively short political life, you were also told the light of democracy would shine the way. Historical progress via the voice of the masses – your masses – was on your side. Yet you suffered a devastating loss (or so you were told) at the ballot box – a loss that has left you in shock, anger, and tears.

Current Prices on popular forms of Silver Bullion

Soon you are about to learn an awful truth about democracy, one your teachers and professors ignored – the winners get to shove it down your throats for the next four years, just as your side shoved it down theirs for eight years. Eggs can be cracked from both sides of the carton.

However, you cannot complain. It was not enough for you to advocate for liberty and the rights of life and property for all. Instead of circumscribing the locus of power and control around your body and property, you listened to so-called educators who claimed you have the right to hold power and control over the lives and property others. They told you this is freedom and fair. That you did not see the hypocrisy in this stance is a product of those years of public schooling, just as is your inability to foresee the reactionary effect.

You cheered the scope and power of government when you believed it was in your control. And now that very same government will be unleased against you. In this, you need to take some of the blame and responsibility.

Now, from my standpoint, as a libertarian (i.e. Classical Liberal, not a member of the ideologically lost party that claims the mantle of libertarianism), the retribution over the next four years will likely weigh as heavy on me as you. Sure, it is possible some of your trespasses will be reversed, but it is more likely that scorpions will replace your whips.2

Tools of the Oligarchy "IndyWatch Feed"

Who are the anti-Trump protesters besmirching the name of progressives by pretending to be progressives and by refusing to accept the outcome of the presidential election? They look like and are acting worse than, the “white trash” that they are denouncing.

I think I know who they are. They are thugs for hire and are paid by the Oligarchy to delegitimize Trump’s presidency in the way that Washington and the German Marshall Fund paid students in Kiev to protest the democratically elected Ukrainian government in order to prepare the way for a coup.

The organization,, which claims to be a progressive group, but might be a front, along with other progressive groups, for the Oligarchy, is destroying the reputation of all progressives by circulating a petition that directs the electors of the Electoral College to annul the election by casting their votes for Hillary. Remember how upset progressives were when Trump said he might not accept the election result if there was evidence that the vote was rigged? Now progressives are doing what they damned Trump for saying he might do under certain conditions.

The Western presstitutes used the protests in Kiev to delegitimize a democratically elected government and to set it up for a coup. The protest pay was good enough that non-Ukrainians came from nearby countries to participate in the protest in order to collect the money. At the time I posted the amounts paid daily to protesters. Reports came into me from Eastern and Western Europe from people who were not Ukrainian but were paid to protest as if they were Ukrainians.

The same thing is going on with the Trump protests. CNN reports that “for many Americans across the country, Donald Trump’s victory is an outcome they simply refuse to accept. Tens of thousands filled the streets in at least 25 US cities overnight.” This is the exact reporting that the Oligarchy desired from its presstitutes and got.

I hope no one thinks that simultaneous protests in 25 cities were a spontaneous event. How did 25 independent protests manage to come up with the same slogans and the same signs on the same night following the election?

What is the point of the protests, and what interest is served by them? As the Romans always asked, “who benefits?”

Current Prices on popular forms of Silver Bullion

There is only one answer: The Oligarchy and only the Oligarchy benefits.

Trump is a threat to the Oligarchy because he intends to stop the giveaway of American jobs to foreigners.

Action This Day! "IndyWatch Feed"

“In victory, magnanimity!” said Winston Churchill.

Donald Trump should be magnanimous and gracious toward those whom he defeated this week, but his first duty is to keep faith with those who put their faith in him.

The protests, riots, and violence that have attended his triumph in the city after city should only serve to steel his resolve.

As for promptings that he “reach out” and “reassure” those upset by his victory, and trim or temper his agenda to pacify them, Trump should reject the poisoned chalice. This is the same old con.

Trump should take as models the Democrats FDR and LBJ.

Franklin Roosevelt, who had savaged Herbert Hoover as a big spender, launched his own New Deal in his first 100 days.

History now hails his initiative and resolve.

Lyndon Johnson exploited his landslide over Barry Goldwater in 1964 to erect his Great Society in 1965: the Voting Rights Act, Medicare, and Medicaid. He compromised on nothing and got it all.

Even those who turned on him for Vietnam still celebrate his domestic achievements.

President Nixon’s great regret was that he did not bomb Hanoi and mine Haiphong in 1969 — instead of waiting until 1972 — and bring the Vietnam War to an earlier end and with fewer U.S. casualties.

Current Prices on popular forms of Gold Bullion

Nixon’s decision not to inflame the social and political crisis of the ’60s by rolling back the Great Society bought him nothing. He was rewarded with media-backed mass demonstrations in 1969 to break his presidency and bring about an American defeat in Vietnam.

“Action this day!” was the scribbled command of Prime Minister Churchill on his notepads in World War II. This should be the motto of the first months of a Trump presidency.

For the historic opportunity, he and the Republican Party have been given by his stunning and unanticipated victory of Nov. 8 will not last long. His adversaries and enemies in politics and press are only temporarily dazed and reeling.

This great opening should be exploited now.

Few anticipated Tuesday morning what we would have today: a decapitated Democratic Party, with the Obamas and Clintons gone or going, Joe Biden with them, no national leader rising, and only the power of obstruction, of which the nation has had enough.

The GOP, however, on Jan. 20, will control both Houses of Congress and the White House, with the real possibility of remaking the Supreme Court in the image of the late Justice Antonin Scalia.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and House Speaker Paul Ryan have indicated they are willing to work with President Trump.

Sorry, Snowflake, But It’s Not Over "IndyWatch Feed"

It’s Nov 10th and it’s time to face the music.

For those of you on the left, I know it is hard. You are confused, bewildered and deeply, deeply saddened. Maybe even triggered. You probably missed work or school yesterday, called in sick or simply didn’t get out of bed. That’s ok though because your Indigenous Women’s Studies prof said it was ok to skip the exam today. Everyone is getting an A as a morale builder. So cheer up.

But unfortunately, that doesn’t really explain anything. How did this happen? It wasn’t supposed to happen. But it did. How could the polls be so wrong? What about the entire media? How?

Well, here are a few theories that might help you see where some of your mistakes were made. First, and probably foremost, is just good old fashioned hubris. The idea that “we can’t be beaten”. Arrogance mixed with confirmation bias is a dangerous thing in any type of conflict; physical or otherwise. Just ask General Custer. Things didn’t work out real well for him and for the same reasons.

This leads directly into another problem that often arises from hubris. That is: failing to understand your enemy.

Current Prices on popular forms of Gold Bullion

It would interest you to know that I, the author of this piece, am not an American. That’s right. I’m not a Yank. I don’t reside in the USA and have no interest in doing so. That means, unlike my illegal immigrant counterparts currently residing in your nation, I didn’t vote.

But like many who fall into the ‘basket of deplorables’ residing in the US, I realized early on that the battle between Trump and Clinton was much more than simply a contest between two politicians for the presidency. At its core, it was an ideological conflict between light and dark, truth and lies. It was a struggle for the heart of western civilization in general.

And while I’ve never considered myself much of a right winger, being more of a libertarian bent, I have found myself increasingly pushed and marginalized by the “enlightened and progressive” amongst you into the same camp with all sorts of deplorables, regardless of where they lived and what they called themselves.

Working on the premise that the enemy of my enemy is my friend we have all found common ground. We have you to thank for that.

Cometh the Hangover "IndyWatch Feed"

All right, we have him. My reaction to Trump’s victory is barely of interest to me, and so it may be that the world is not waiting in quiet desperation for an account. I have no information on this matter from Ulan Bator or Sulawesi. Insofar as my reaction was that of half of the country, it may be of note.

My reaction was, “Yes! Yes!  Yessss!”

This, of course, is because like all of Trump’s supporters I am sick of corruption, oligarchs, New York, candidate’s who sell state favors surrounded by serial rapists and goofy-looking pedophiles, and the goddamned bought-and-paid-for media.

And then I wondered how much I should be  delighted. I am not a particularly enthusiastic Trump fan. The man seems radically incoherent, almost nutty. What now? Of the things Trump has promised, which, if any, make sense? Which are unthought-out huff and puff? From what will he back away? Will he transmute himself by degrees into Hillary?

For example, his Wall. As a metaphorical expression of opposition to immigration, it serves well. As a practical project? No. What are the specifics? A Wall made of what? How high, how deep underground, requiring how much of what materials? Do the arithmetic on yards of concrete and feet of rebar and then pour yourself a stiff drink. Flimsy is cuttable, tall requires only a taller ladder.

Electronic monitoring sounds good but would require either use of the military as a domestic police force to patrol the Wall–hello, Guatemala–or a huge new federal bureaucracy  working three shifts, often housed in barracks in an uninhabited country. Helicopters, sensors, big contracts for the same.

Things that would actually work to discourage illegals, such as the heavy prosecution of people hiring illegals, this by using federal laws already on the books and a Justice Department he will control, do not feature greatly in his talk. Uh…why not?

He wants to put a thirty percent (or whatever: he isn’t consistent) tariff on goods made by American companies in China and brought back for sale in the US. So an iPad goes from $1000 to $1300, whereupon Samsung corners the market. So he puts an equal tariff on Samsung’s tablets. The effect is a heavy tax on the American consumer.

The underlying problem is that if labor is a dollar an hour in Bangladesh, and $40 an hour in America after including benefits, bringing jobs back to America is going to make things much more expensive for Americans. Breaking unions, which are irrelevant today anyway, or charges of currency manipulation will not make enough of a difference to make a difference.

Why are the most advertised Gold and Silver coins NOT the best way to invest?

Trump has said that he will rid the country of illegals, of whom there are between ten and fifteen...


Scorpions in a Bottle? "IndyWatch Feed"

John Kennedy is quoted as saying “Success has many fathers but failure is an orphan.” Translated into modern politics, no one wants to admit responsibility for losing an election. That includes the losing candidate’s closest advisors.

The post mortems on the campaign have barely begun but Hillary Clinton’s top aides are already pointing the finger of blame at others, absolving themselves of responsibility for a debacle that will go down in presidential campaign history as the most shocking outcome ever.

It should be noted that campaign staff blaming everyone but themselves for defeat is nothing new. John McCain’s aides in 2008 began a whispering campaign against Sarah Palin, blaming her for the loss before the election was even held.

But in this case, where the advice that Clinton got was so spectacularly wrong and a billion dollars was spent in a futile attempt to sell the voters a candidate with no accomplishments and little to offer, it’s unseemly for aides not to recognize their own shortcomings.

One DNC staffer stood up at a meeting and screamed at temporary DNC chair Donna Brazile.

Washington Free Beacon:

The staffer, only identified as Zach, had some choice words for Brazile and her failure to lead the Democratic Party to victory on Tuesday night.

Brazile was giving a post-election rallying speech to a group of approximately 150 DNC staffers on Thursday when Zach stood up and offered his unfiltered thoughts on her leadership during the 2016 election, the Huffington Post reported.

“Why should we trust you as chair to lead us through this?” he asked, according to two people in the room. “You backed a flawed candidate, and your friend [former DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz] plotted through this to support your own gain and yourself.”

Some DNC staffers started to boo and some told him to sit down. Brazile began to answer, but Zach had more to say.

“You are part of the problem,” he continued, blaming Brazile for clearing the path for Trump’s victory by siding with Clinton early on. “You and your friends will die of old age and I’m going to die from climate change. You and your friends let this happen, which is going to cut 40 years off my life expectancy.”

After his tirade, Zach reportedly packed up his belongings and stormed out of the room as Brazile called after h...


Celebrity Meltdowns "IndyWatch Feed"

What are all these celebrities still doing here? Didn’t they promise us they were gone if Trump won? So many of them said they were heading to Canada, street artist Sabo created a fake real estate company to help them move. Now that it’s time to make good on their promise they’re strangely silent. Amy Schumer has been the only one to comment and she says she was “just joking.”

It’s been some low-hanging fruit watching celebrities react to this election, but low-hanging fruit is delicious. Lady Gaga asked that we “say a prayer America” and then blew Trump’s mind by standing outside one of his buildings with a sign that said, “Love trumps hate.” This is a powerful message because Trump hates love. He was hoping that eventually, he could wipe out all the love in America but Gaga was ensuring him that no matter how hard he tried, it would still be there. Where do these people get their views from—Dr. Seuss? He’s not the Lorax, Lady.

Do You Eat Egg-Whites Only? "IndyWatch Feed"

By Dr. Mercola

A debatable precaution from the conventional medical community about how to eat eggs was initiated some years ago by scientists who thought they knew nature better than, well, nature.

Beginning in 1961, you may have heard the word of warning that if you were going to eat eggs, it should be the whites only, because the yolks were considered unhealthily high in cholesterol. Dangerous. Bad for you. Risky.

The risky part came with warnings like “spikes your heart disease risk” and “high blood cholesterol raises your risk of diabetes.” Like quipster Mark Twain once said, “It isn’t ignorance that causes trouble; it’s knowing so much that just ain’t so.” As The Epoch Times explained:

“At one time, eating eggs was considered bad for the heart and circulation. This was all based on an assumption that saturated fat was bad …

Any associations between total saturated fat intake, heart disease and blood pressure come down to what people weren’t eating (for example, fruit, vegetables [and] fish) rather than their high saturated-fat diet per se.

The total fat content of even a large hen’s egg (weighing 1.76 ounces) isn’t high at around 5 grams.”1

About 30 percent of the total fat content of that large egg is beneficial saturated fat, while the remainder is monounsaturated fats (MUFA) and polyunsaturated fats (PUFA), which are solidly heart healthy.

Reasons Why Eggs Are so Good for You

The fact is, eggs are considered to be an almost perfect food. Sure, you need to eat other foods as well, but eggs contain an impressive number of nutrients. The yolk is arguably the healthiest part of the whole, as it contains vitamins A, D, E, K and B12, omega-3 fats, antioxidants, folate and much more choline than the white.

There’s also a good amount of carotenoid content, which is where the yellow color comes from, the most important being the antioxidants lutein and zeaxanthin, which lower inflammation and protect your eye health.

Biotin, a water-soluble B vitamin, aka vitamin B7, aids in your body’s glucose and fatty acid metabolism and is particularly important during pregnancy. However, raw egg whites contain a protein called avidin, which may block absorption of biotin....


Alternative Cancer Treatments With Positive Results and Generic-Drug Probe to Be Filed by Year-End "IndyWatch Feed World"

The news of Michael Buble's three-year-old son being diagnosed with liver cancer brought back flashbacks from my childhood; you could say that I became a naturopathic doctor because of cancer.

As a 10-year-old child, I stood before the coffin of my 10-year-old cousin Linda--she had died from cancer. There are experiences where one encounter can shape your life, and Linda's death shaped mine.

How could this be, a 10-year-old dying from cancer? We just played together and now her play was gone.

I made a vow to myself that day that I would try to change this from happening, and as a child I began studying alternative medicine and continued this pursuit my entire life, specifically anti-aging and chronic disease treatments dealing with cancer and recognizing a connection between nutrition and the disease structure.

Jakarta Riots: What Went Wrong? "IndyWatch Feed Asia"

34234234123123An enormous rally shook Jakarta on the 4th November. With unusual zeal, between 50 and 100 thousand protesters managed to trash several parts of the capital. Cars were torched; traffic in the center came to a standstill. Police fired teargas canisters at the protesters and water cannons were used. According to the AP, one elderly man died and scores of demonstrators and policemen were injured.

These were the biggest demos in recent years. Considering how many profound problems Indonesia is facing, the country is shockingly compliant.

Were these protests against the on-going genocide in Papua, where Indonesian forces are massacring the mostly defenseless local population on behalf of Western companies?

Or perhaps, were they against the corrupt turbo capitalist regime, which has governed this virtually collapsed nation ever since the 1965 US-sponsored military coup against the progressive President and the father of the Non-Aligned movement, Sukarno?

Frankly, none of the above! In Indonesia, the horrors committed in Papua are not discussed publicly at all, and capitalism remains sacred here; even the poorest of the poor are conditioned to revere it.

The riots were actually over alleged ‘blasphemy’, and the participants consisted mainly of hard-line Muslim fundamentalists. Lately, religious ‘topics’ are the only ones that are managing to mobilize crowds of ‘outraged’ citizens.

So what went wrong this time? Actually, nothing really!

As reported by the BBC and others, “Basuki Tjahaja Purnama, a Christian, is the first ethnic Chinese to hold the governor’s post in the capital of the majority Muslim Indonesia.” His nickname is ‘Ahok’, he is extremely popular, and he is one of the very few Indonesian politicians who are determinedly cracking down on corruption while introducing various social programs for the poor.

Most Indonesian hardcore Islamists are extreme-right wingers. They regularly attack and disperse even the most ‘benign’ political gatherings where the introduction of free medical care and other social benefits are shyly suggested and discussed. To them, everything social stinks of ‘Communism’, and Communism has been banned here ever since the 1965/66 Suharto bloodlettings.

The religious rightwing cannot win politically; therefore it regularly plants seeds of disinformation and chaos.



ESP8266 Lullaby "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

The ESP8266 is certainly a versatile device. It does, however, draw a bit of power. That isn’t really surprising, though, since you would expect beaming out WiFi signals to take a little juice. The trick is to not keep the device on all the time and spend the rest of the time in deep sleep mode. [Marco Schwartz] has a good tutorial about how to use this mode to run for “years” on a battery.

[Marco] notes that even using a 2500 mAh LiPo battery, he only gets about 30 hours of operation without sleep. By putting the chip in sleep mode, the current consumption drops from about 88 mA to just over 8 mA. That’s still high, though, because the board has a power LED! By removing a jumper or cutting a trace (depending on the board), you can drop the current draw to about 0.08 mA (80 uA) when it’s not doing anything.

The code for the example is on GitHub. Of course, the real trick is to come up with a strategy that you can keep the device in sleep mode more often than not. That’s not always easy. You might need to rethink a few things. For example, if you serve out a configuration web page, you might need to add a button to wake the device up and serve the web page (be sure it times out after a certain amount of inactivity). So deep sleep mode isn’t a panacea, but with the right design, you can get a lot of battery life.

Some ESP boards require a little modification to use this trick. If you are looking for a good example of how a design might change to accommodate sleep mode, you can find one in this mailbox indicator.

If Common Chemicals Harm Frogs and Rats, What Are They Doing to Your Children? "IndyWatch Feed World"

By Dr. Mercola

By Dr. Mercola

The TED Talk above features Penelope Jagessar Chaffer, director of the documentary film “Toxic Baby,”1 and Tyrone Hayes, Ph.D., a professor of integrative biology at the University of California, who has dedicated most of his career to studying the health effects of the herbicide atrazine.

According to Chaffer, the average American woman today has 30,000 to 50,000 chemicals in her body that her grandparents did not have. Many of these chemicals have been linked to the rapidly rising incidence of chronic childhood diseases.

Statistics Reveal Our Children Are at Grave Risk

In her talk, Chaffer cites the following statistics, which may well be higher today, since this talk was given six years ago, in 2010:

  • In the U.K., incidence of childhood leukemia rose by 20 percent in one generation
  • In Canada, prevalence of asthma increased by 400 percent in 20 years; 1 in 10 children is now diagnosed with asthma
  • In the U.S., childhood cancers have seen a similar rise as that of childhood leukemia in the U.K. Autism spectrum disorder has also increased by 600 percent in the past 20 years; incidence of autism rose by 57 percent between 2002 and 2006 alone
  • In the Netherlands, Rotterdam has seen a 400 percent increase in genital birth defects

Obesity and juvenile diabetes have also skyrocketed, and while a high-sugar diet likely bears the brunt of the blame, there’s every reason to suspect that endocrine-disrupting chemicals (EDCs) — many of which enter our system via processed foods — add to the metabolic dysfunction we now see.

Lebanon’s National Library is Open Till November 20 "IndyWatch Feed World"

The rehabilitation project of the National Library is supposedly complete but it won’t be opening (officially) anytime soon because the cabinet has yet to appoint an executive board and director. Nevertheless, there’s an ongoing exhibition organized by the Lebanese Foundation for the National Library till November 20 inside the National Library from 11 am till 6 pm (excluding Mondays) so this is your chance to have a sneak peek visit before it closes down again.

The “Bitasarrof” exhibition at the National Library in Sanayeh “delves into our art, culture and heritage while bracing the project of the rehabilitation of the National Library” and is open to the public.

The premise for our theme was to find a silver lining to the pagination error that occurred in the printing of the book ‘Cent Ans de la Presse au Liban, 1859-1959’ , published in 2010 by the Lebanese Foundation for the National Library. This book – deemed unable to be distributed – was creatively transformed into an exhibition of which fifty five artists from different generations and creative practices have produced, with total creative freedom, a piece of work inspired by the book. They all have generously donated their artoworks to the Lebanese Foundation for the National Library, as a tangible contribution to the country’s art history and diversity while defending the freedom of speech represented by the book.

Dems: Let's Read Important, Self-Critical Articles on the Election "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

“Our principles” "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

There is another reason why the Republican Party could not contain Trump, a perhaps deeper reason. Michael Oakeshott, an under-read political thinker in the mid-20th century, remarked in his exquisite essay, “Rationalism in Politics,” that one of the more pathological notions of our age is that political life can be understood in terms of “principles” that must be applied to circumstances. Politics-as-engineering, if you will. Republicans themselves succumbed to this notion, and members of the rank and file have noticed. Republicans stood for “the principles of the constitution,” for “the principles of the free market,” etc. The problem with standing for principles is that it allows you to remain unsullied by the political fray, to stand back and wait until yet another presidential election cycle when “our principles” can perhaps be applied. And if we lose, it’s OK, because we still have “our principles.” What Trump has been able to seize upon is growing dissatisfaction with this endless deferral, the sociological arrangement for which looks like comfortable Inside-the-Beltway Republicans defending “principles” and rank-and-file Republicans far from Washington-Babylon watching in horror and disgust.

That is from a very interesting Politico piece by Joshua Mitchell of Georgetown.  As for me, let’s just say I am a big fan of what Mitchell calls “book club”!

In Fresh Push, Iraqi Special Forces Seize Mosul District "IndyWatch Feed Asia"

Kokjali/Baghdad, Iraq: Iraqi special forces said they pushed deeper into Mosul on Friday, despite heavy resistance from ISIS militants using civilians as cover, and were holding half a dozen city neighbourhoods seized in the last 10 days.

The elite Counter Terrorism Service troops broke through ISIS defence lines to enter the city early last week and have since been embroiled in a brutal, close-quarter combat with waves of suicide bombers and snipers.

The special forces are the spearhead of a wider coalition of 100,000 fighters seeking to crush a few thousand Islamic State jihadists who have ruled Mosul, the biggest city of their cross-border “caliphate” in Iraq and Syria, for the last two years.

The campaign, nearly four weeks old, is the most complex military operation in Iraq in the 13 years of turmoil since the US invasion that toppled Saddam Hussein.

Security forces and army infantry divisions, backed by a US-led air force, are preparing to move on southern and northern districts of Mosul in coming days, to step up pressure on the militants.

Kurdish peshmerga and Shi’ite paramilitary forces are holding territory to the northeast and to the west.

On the eastern front, special forces pushed into the Qadisiya al-Thaniya district, on the northern edge of the small pocket of neighbourhoods they control so far, Sabah al-Numani, spokesman for the Counter Terrorism Service, told Reuters.

“We have encountered heavy resistance from the enemy,” he said, with what he called “obstructive patrols” of militant forces trying to hold up the advance.

“We are facing the most difficult form of urban warfare, fighting with the presence of civilians, but our forces are trained for this sort of combat.”

Military officers have told Reuters that the fighting is some of the most lethal they have seen, with small groups of militants using a vast network of tunnels and narrow streets to launch an apparently endless sequence of attacks against troops.

A Reuters correspondent in Kokjali, on the eastern edge of the city, saw US Apache helicopters overhead. Explosions, either from air strikes or suicide car bombs which the jihadists have deployed in the hundreds since the campaign started on October 17, could be heard against a backdrop of artillery fire.

As smoke rose above the city, hundreds of civilians were on the streets of Kokjali, some of them local residents but others fleeing the fighting in Mosul itself.

The International Organization for Migration says nearly 48,000 people have been displaced by the fighting, still a relatively low figure compared to a United Nations warning before the campaign of a possible exodus of up to 800,000.

Numani said the army had told civilians to stay indoors for their safety, adding that the counter terrorism unit aimed to hand over neighbourhoods which it had secured to...

The TPP is Dead: The People Defeat Transnational Corporate Power "IndyWatch Feed Pacific"

The Obama administration faced reality on Friday when they recognized the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) would not be ratified by this Congress. The TPP is dead.

How did people power win?

We have worked to stop the TPP and other Obama trade agreements for more than five years. We were part of the ‘movement of movements’, the largest coalition ever opposing a corporate trade agreement, which stopped it. It included all sorts of activists who work on human rights, worker rights, the environment, climate change, Internet freedom, health care, food safety and more.

People told us stopping the TPP was impossible. Even after the election of Trump, people still told us we could not win, the corporations wanted this and they would get it. But, after years of work, the impossible became the inevitable and the TPP is dead.

Even before the election the TPP was near death. Years of people working to stop it made TPP stand for Toxic Political Poison. First, the movement exposed the TPP which the Obama administration had sought to keep secret while it negotiated a global corporate coup with the aid of hundreds of corporate lawyers, executives and lobbyists.

The movement organized spectacle protests that drew attention to an agreement being secretly negotiated. People across the country organized leafletting, teach-ins and visibility actions. There were national and global days of action, and there were Twitter storms and memes on Facebook. It became impossible to hide the TPP. The secret was exposed. Once exposed, the movement educated people about what it contained. Wikileaks and others leaked portions of the document. As more was exposed, it became less popular.

The movement conducted national call-in days that garnered hundreds of thousands of calls to Congress. When we went to Congressional offices, phone calls coming in on the TPP were constant. When fast track was being considered in 2015, we built an encampment on Capitol Hill for three weeks. We worked across the political divide with Tea Party and conservative Republicans who shared our concerns about the trade deficit, lost jobs and loss of sovereignty.

The battle over fast track trade promotion authority slowed the progress of the TPP. It took years longer to get fast track than the administration had hoped. One compromise that the administration made to get fast track was to publish the TPP text after it was completed so the public and members of Congress could read it. Again, the more people read about it, the less popular it became.

These political battles also showed the risk associated with the TPP. John Boehner, the former Speaker of the House, lost his job because of how he twisted arms to get votes for fast track and how he punished Republicans who exposed fast track. Members fought back against these tactics and Boehner’s career was quickly ended. He may have won fast track for Obama, but lost his place in Washington, DC. A message...

President Barack Obama,

As spiritual leaders, elders, medicine people, we carry great responsibility for our Nations. We are not political people though we stand-up to politics to ensure the future. Unfortunately, this often includes our own people in political positions that are knowingly and willingly violating the Creator’s Natural Law. This Law guides all life and is the spiritual foundation held sacred by Indigenous Peoples around the world. Policies, procedures and laws created by the United States of America continue to hurt the Indigenous Peoples, our ways of life and the natural world. These laws, policies and procedures can be changed or amended what cannot change is our absolute dependence on Mother Nature.

As President, you have unprecedented access to the latest technological information and data from the scientific community. This vast amount of information provides you with tremendous knowledge. This information is confirming what Indigenous Peoples have been voicing since the arrival of Europeans. Knowledge without wisdom is unguided. Just as science without spirit has brought the people of the world to the brink of self-destruction.

It has been extremely difficult for Indigenous Peoples to be understood by those that make decisions based on money. We feel sorry for leaders, including those from Indigenous Peoples, who gamble with our future by making spiritually disconnected decisions. You, Barack Obama, when campaignin...

Mont Pelerin, Switzerland: Talks on reuniting the divided island of Cyprus have achieved significant progress and will resume on November 20, the UN said on Friday, at the end of a fifth straight day of negotiations in the Swiss resort of Mont Pelerin.

UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon opened the round of talks between Greek Cypriot President Nicos Anastasiades and his Turkish Cypriot counterpart Mustafa Akinci on Monday, saying they were both committed to trying to reach a deal this year.

“During these past five days, the chapter on territory and all other issues were discussed interdependently. Significant progress has been achieved,” the United Nations said in a brief statement released after 11 p.m. local time on Friday.

“Upon request of the Greek Cypriot leader, Mr. Anastasiades, it has been decided by the two leaders to take a recess and reconvene in Geneva on Sunday, 20 November 2016, to continue their deliberations from Mont Pelerin.”

Cyprus’s 800,000 Greek Cypriots and approximately 220,000 Turkish Cypriots live on the divided island with a UN- patrolled ceasefire line splitting the island east to west.

The island was split in a Turkish invasion in 1974 triggered by a brief Greek-inspired coup. But friction between the two sides dates back at least a decade when Turkish Cypriots pulled out of a power-sharing government at perceived attempts by Greek Cypriots to limit their say.

By 21wire

21st Century Wire says…

In 2008 and 2012, Ron Paul created a libertarian and paleoconservative insurency in America. The country had an opportunity to elect a real stateman and dedicated constitutionalist in Dr Paul, but unfortunately he could not overcome establishment gatekeepers within his own party, as well as in the corrupt US mainstream media.

In 2016, few commentators are as well-placed to analyse the rise of the Trump insurgency as well as Dr Paul.

CrossTalk ask: “With the surprise election of Donald Trump, can we expect an equally surprising foreign policy from him? During the campaign he provided us with a glimpse of his thinking. Will there be a Trump Doctrine?”

Watch this incredible one-on-one interview with RT’s Peter Lavelle and special guest Dr Ron Paul:

Paris attacks: Counter-terrorism chief wants fingerprinting & iris scans for everyone entering UK borders "IndyWatch Feed World"

Every person entering the United Kingdom should be forced to undergo "fool-proof" fingerprinting and iris scans, the country's newly appointed counter-terrorism chief says, claiming the move will prevent terrorists from entering Britain. Speaking one year after the Paris attacks left 130 people dead and 368 injured, the UK's new senior national coordinator for counter-terrorism policing, Neil Basu, said the atrocities were a "sit up and think" moment for those tasked with defending Britain. "Society needs to debate what's required. But in law enforcement, I'd say if you want security, you need to improve your biometrics at the borders," he said, as quoted by the Telegraph.

Chet Raymo, “The Broken Web” "IndyWatch Feed World"

“The Broken Web”
by Chet Raymo

“Every fall, when a mysterious seasonal alarm clock tells them to go, the monarch butterflies of our New England meadows set off on one of the most remarkable migrations in the animal kingdom. They wing their way to a tiny patch of forest in the mountains of central Mexico that they have never visited before, where they are joined by millions of their cousins from all over eastern North America. They rest and feed and wait out the winter. Then, in the spring, they set out for northern meadows, breeding and dying along the way. There will be no Mexican veterans to lead the next migration south.

How do they do it? How does a butterfly that has never made the journey know when to set out and where to go? That pinch of flesh with postage-stamp wings? The call, the map, and the navigational skills must surely lie in the monarch's DNA. The DNA encodes proteins. The proteins are a language of geometry that speaks through the monarch's nervous system: "Ven, sigueme! Come follow me."

To merely contemplate this mystery is wonder enough for a lifetime. Readers of my book "The Path: A One...

“I have no faith in vaccination; nay, I look upon it with the greatest possible disgust…Indeed, I consider we are now living in the Jennerian epoch for the slaughter of innocents, and the unthinking portion of the adult population.”

"Alive in Joy: Dispelling Drama" "IndyWatch Feed World"

"Alive in Joy: Dispelling Drama"
by Madisyn Taylor, The DailyOM

"Some people are so used to creating drama that a peaceful existence seems uncomfortable for them. There are scores of people in the world who seem to be magnets for calamity. They live their lives jumping from one difficult to the next, surrounded by unstable individuals. Some believe themselves victims of fate and decry a universe they regard as malevolent. Others view their chaotic circumstances as just punishments for some failing within. Yet, in truth, neither group has been fated or consigned to suffer. They are likely unconsciously drawing drama into their lives, attracting catastrophe through their choices, attitudes, and patterns of thought. Drama, however disastrous, can be exciting and stimulating. But the thrill of pandemonium eventually begins to frustrate the soul and drain the energy of all who embrace it. To halt this process, we must understand the root of our drama addiction, be aware of our reactions, and be willing to accept that a serene, joyful life need not be a boring one.

Many people, so used to living in the dramatic world they create, feel uncomfortable when confronted with the prospect of a lifetime of peace and contentment. The drama in their lives serves multiple purposes. Upset causes excitement, prompting the body to manufacture adrenaline, which produces a pleasurable surge of energy. For those seeking affection in the form of sym...

Giant-sized snowballs up to 3 feet in diameter have appeared along the Siberian coastline for a stretch of 11 km. The frozen balls appeared on the coastline near the village of Nyda above the Arctic Circle. The snowballs formed in late October when the Gulf of Ob rose up onto land and covered the beach in ice. As the water retreated, the remaining ice chunks rolled over creating snowballs which grew and grew in huge proportions. This area has reached near record cold for this time of year and snow cover has reached the highest level since 1998.

Trump Protests Reveal Their Own Hatred "IndyWatch Feed World"


The degree of how morally debased many of those who have been supporting Hillary is being exposed just how anti-democratic these people are boarding on a virtual communist-like revolution. They have had the audacity to submit a petition to tell the electors not to vote for Trump on December 19th and still give it to Hillary saying they will pay the fines. This is so outrageous it would clearly instill bloodshed and an outright revolution. They claim to have over 2 million signatures and this is following the same path as the court in Britain saying the people had no right to decide their own future, only government.

1928-berlin-revolutionThis is the very same reasoning and call to arms that inspired the communist revolutions. It’s their way or no way. This is highly dangerous and makes one argue they should all be arrested as traitor to the constitution, confined the Arkansas, and then jettisoned from the nation and let them all regulate each other to create their world where they can live on other people’s money. This is so anti-democratic it is unbelievable. This makes a mockery of everyone who has ever died for this country and the fact that Hil...


Anti-Trump Protesters Take to the Streets for Third Night "IndyWatch Feed Asia"

Miami: Protesters demonstrating against the election of Donald Trump gathered in several US cities for a third night on Friday, hours after the president-elect praised their “passion”.

As darkness fell on Friday, thousands took to the streets of Miami, Atlanta, Philadelphia, New York, San Francisco and Portland, Oregon, voicing anger at Trump’s inflammatory and often deeply controversial campaign rhetoric about immigrants, Muslims and women.

In Miami, several thousand activists marched through the downtown, with a few hundred making their way onto a highway, halting traffic in both directions.

In New York, demonstrators again gathered in Washington Square Park and by Trump Tower, where the Republican president-elect lives, on Fifth Avenue.

Trump, who initially denounced Americans who protested against his election, saying they had been “incited” by the media, reversed course and praised them on Friday.

“Love the fact that the small groups of protesters last night have passion for our great country. We will all come together and be proud!” Trump said on Twitter.

The tweets were further evidence of Trump’s mixed messages since he announced his candidacy 17 months ago. After Democrat Hillary Clinton conceded defeat early on Wednesday, he took a far more conciliatory tone than he had often displayed during his campaign and promised to be a president for all Americans.

There were no reports of violence or arrests at Friday’s rallies, unlike on Thursday night when demonstrators in Portland threw objects, damaging new cars at a dealership. Police there arrested at least 26 people.

In Los Angeles on Thursday night, police arres...

The Poet: Walt Whitman, "Miracles" "IndyWatch Feed World"


"Why, who makes much of a miracle?
As to me I know of nothing else but miracles,
Whether I walk the streets of Manhattan,
Or dart my sight over the roofs of houses toward the sky,
Or wade with naked feet along the beach just in the edge
of the water,
Or stand under trees in the woods,
Or talk by day with anyone I love, or sleep in the bed
at night with anyone I love,
Or sit at the table at dinner with the rest,
Or look at strangers opposite me riding in the car,
Or watch honeybees busy around the hive
of a summer forenoon,
Or animals feeding in the fields,
Or birds, or the wonderfulness of insects in the air,
Or the wonderfulness of the sundown, or of stars shining
so quiet and bright,
Or the exquisite delicate thin curve of the new moon
in spring;
These with the rest, one and all, are to me miracles,
The whole referring, yet each distinct and in its place.
To me every hour of the light and dark is a miracle,
Every cubic inch of space is a miracle,
Every square yard of the surface of the earth is spread
with the same,
Every foot of the interior swarms with the same.
To me the sea is a continual miracle,
The fishes that swim- the rocks- the motion of the waves
- the ships with men in them,
What stranger miracles are there?"

Canadians Pledge To Build Border Wall As Disgruntled US Voters Look To Immigrate En Masse "IndyWatch Feed World"

Trump’s victory has led to a crash in Canada’s immigration website and thus has caused the Canadians to voice their desire for a border wall. Those opposing Trump began looking at immigration options as soon as things were getting heated during the election.

Canada’s immigration website crashed hours before Trump was declared the winner of the US presidential election. Access has since been restored to the site. This leading to talk of a wall. Many Canadian journalists have supported the idea of a wall separating the US and Canada. Josh Freed of the Montreal Gazette says that “we must build a wall between the US and us, and the time is now.” 

Many Canadian citizens have vocalized about just how useful a wall could be to them. They seem to see it as a way to keep American bad habits out of Canada. While at this time we do not know if Canada will actually push for a wall or not, but how ironic is that? It appears illegal immigration from the United States into Canada is going to become a major issue in Canadian politics.


Anti-Trump Protestors in Minneapolis Shut Down Interstate 94 "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

Twin Cities, MN – Thousands stormed Interstate 94 in Minneapolis, protesting Donald Trump, the new President-elect, on Thursday night, effectively halting traffic in both directions for several hours.

This action came a day after Unicorn Riot was in St. Paul, where we were live throughout the evening documenting the more than five hour march that took place starting at the State Capitol building.

As anti-Trump protests continued to sweep through the nation’s streets for a third night in a row on Thursday, Unicorn Riot was livestreaming during both the Minneapolis and Denver protests that shut down major interstates.

In Minneapolis, the protest began as a rally on the University of Minnesota – Twin Cities campus. After a myriad of speakers finished, throngs of protesters took to the streets, marching down Cedar and Franklin avenues.

The march paused at the G.O.P. headquarters, located in the heart of the ‘liberal’ Seward neighborhood of Minneapolis and speeches were made. “F— Trump” graffiti was added in large letters to the outer brick wall of the building that holds G.O.P.’s headquarters.

From there, protesters marched down Riverside Avenue, where hundreds, maybe thousands, streamed onto the on-ramp for Interstate 94, effectively shutting down one of the main interstates in Minnesota for several hours.

Tiny Homes Banned in U.S. at Increasing Rate as Govt Criminalizes Sustainable Living "IndyWatch Feed World"

As the corporatocracy tightens its grip on the masses – finding ever more ways to funnel wealth to the top – humanity responds in a number of ways, including the rising popularity of tiny houses.

These dwellings, typically defined as less than 500 square feet, are a way for people to break free of mortgages, taxes, utility bills and the general trappings of “stuff.”

They’re especially attractive to millennials and retirees, or those seeking to live off-grid.

But government and corporations depend on rampant consumerism and people being connected to the grid.

Earth Facing ‘Mini Ice Age’ In 15 Years As Sun Found To Be Cooling "IndyWatch Feed World"

Many people have been emphasizing the chance of Global Warming for decades, but new research says that something quite different is actually heading our way. According to these researchers, a drop in solar magnetism will actually cause a miniature ice age in the next 15 years.

Currently, solar activity is at the lowest level it has reached in the past 300 years. Researchers say that the last time it reached a point this low, London’s Thames River froze over, during another mini ice age known as the Maunder Minimum. According to data provided by a new breakthrough model that scientists are now using, solar magnetic activity should decrease by 50% between 2030-2040.

By looking at the Sun’s “11-year heartbeat’, or the time period in which magnetic activity fluctuates. The “heartbeat” cycle was discovered around 173 years ago.

A new mathematician has come up with a more up-to-date model that has the ability to predict future solar cycles based on dynamo effects in two layers inside of the Sun.

Basically, the dynamo effects are the geographical theory that decides how the movement of the Earth’s outer core will conduct materials such as liquid iron across the magnetic field to create an electric current. The also predicts fluid motion underneath the Earth’s surface to create two magnetic fields across the axis of the rotation of planet Earth.

By using the theory of the Sun, Professor Valentina Zharkova from Northumbria University was able to predict the affects of solar cycles with 97 percent accuracy.


During an Astronomy Meeting, Zharkova stated, “We found magnetic wave components appearing in pairs, originating in two different layers in the Sun’s interior.

“They both have a frequency of approximately 11 years, although this frequency is slightly different, and they are offset in time.

“Combining both waves together and comparing to real data for the current solar cycle, we found that our predictions showed an accuracy of 97 per cent.”

Her prediction is that the next peak in the cycle should be in 2022. The cycle directly after that, Cycle 26, will be the beginning of a new ice age.
Continuing, she said, “In Cycle 26, the two...

New Therapeutic Vaccine Approach Holds Promise for HIV Remission "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

A study led by researchers at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC), in collaboration with scientists at Walter Reed Army Institute of Research (WRAIR), Janssen Vaccines & Prevention B.V., one of the Janssen Pharmaceutical Companies of Johnson & Johnson and Gilead Sciences, Inc., has demonstrated that combining an experimental vaccine with an innate immune stimulant may help lead to viral remission in people living with HIV. In animal trials, the combination decreased levels of viral DNA in peripheral blood and lymph nodes, and improved viral suppression and delayed viral rebound following discontinuation of anti-retroviral therapy (ART). The research team's findings appeared online today in the journal Nature.

"The objective of our study was to identify a functional cure for HIV -- not to eradicate the virus, but to control it without the need for ART," said lead author Dan Barouch, MD, PhD, Director of the Center for Virology and Vaccine Research at BIDMC. "Current antiretroviral drugs, although they're lifesaving, do not cure HIV. They merely hold it in check. We are trying to develop strategies to achieve ART-free, long-term viral suppression."

The finding would make an enormous difference in Africa where HIV is epidemic, if they can get an affordable treatment into the field.

Proposition 57 Allows ‘Non-Violent’ Offenders To Be Eligible For Parole: This Includes Rapists And Human Traffickers! "IndyWatch Feed World"

Proposition 57 has been highly controversial and with good reason. The goal of this is to reduce the amount of inmates in California prisons by setting them free.

It would be a great idea if these ‘non-violent’ offenders were not people who were serving time for rape, gang-related gun crimes, performing lewd acts against children, and many other terrible things. The poor drafting of this proposition puts all of these things in groups as ‘non-violent’ crimes. This making those people eligible for early parole and release! These are all crimes that are considered ‘non-violent’ under proposition 57:

  • Rape by intoxication
  • Rape of an unconscious person
  • Human trafficking involving sex acts with minors
  • Drive-by shootings
  • Assault with a deadly weapon
  • Hostage taking
  • Attempting to explode a bomb at a hospital or school
  • Hate crimes causing physical injury
  • Domestic violence involving trauma
  • Supplying firearms to a gang member
  • Failing to register as a sex offender
  • Lewd acts against a child 14 or 15
  • Discharging a firearm on school grounds
  • Arson

Do these people sound like people we want to have released? Most of the people in prisons are not first-time offenders and have been in and out their whole lives. Letting these people free could potentially be one of the worst moves possible.

With every single parole hearing victims of these criminals are forced to relive what they went through and it is apparent that crime rates will go up as these criminals make their way out into the world once again.

57 gives the state government the authority to reduce the sentences of inmates who have committed terrible deeds when they show ‘good behavior.’  This meaning criminals who have done these things are being treated the same as first-time offenders and that is not fair at all.

Should someone who rapes an unconscious person really be released from prison early? Elderly child molesters who go for young boys? They should be able to cut their sentences in half, right? NO!

While 57 will be saving taxpayers lots of money by reducing wasteful prison spending if this is the lengths we have to go to then they can keep spending that money! They say that they are rehabilitating these inmates and I’m sure that is true in some cases but these people should still serve the time sentenced to them.

The only issue with this proposition  is that they have given too broad an area as to what is considered ‘non-violent.’ There i...

Fragt ihr euch auch, wie es beispielsweise beim Kampf ... "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

Fragt ihr euch auch, wie es beispielsweise beim Kampf gegen Hatespeech kommen kann, dass die Leute, die anderen Hatespeech und Intoleranz vorwerfen, dann selber kein Stück mehr Toleranz gegenüber Andersdenkenden aufbringen können?

Das ist eine Frage, die bei mir häufiger in Einsendungen artikuliert wird.

Eine Theorie, die ich gehört habe, ist dass "der Zweck halt die Mittel heiligt". Das geht aber glaube ich zu weit. Ich glaube, dass die Entscheidung hier nicht in absoluten Werten getroffen wird, sondern in relativen. Ich glaube, dass das nur geht, weil die Leute sich ein Weltbild zurechtgelegt haben, das die Untaten der Gegenseite schlimmer einschätzt als die eigenen Untaten.

Ich dachte eine Weile, dass die Leute gar nicht merken, wenn sie selbst intolerant sind, aber das hat sich bisher überhaupt noch nicht bestätigen lassen, wenn ich sie auf ihr Verhalten angesprochen habe. Uns Menschen ist bewusst, wenn wir etwas unmoralisches tun, und wir brauchen vorher ein moralisches Framework, in dem der Gegenüber das verdient hat, beispielsweise weil er mehr auf dem Kerbholz hat als wir. Das konnte ich jetzt schon häufiger live beobachten, wie die eigene Intoleranz am Ende dadurch rationalisiert oder gerechtfertigt wird, dass man sagt, aber der Trump ist ja noch viel schlimmer. Aber das sind doch Rassisten! Nazis! Frauenhasser! Auch "mit solchen Leuten kann man doch nicht mehr reden" halte ich inzwischen für eine nachträgliche Rationalisierung dafür, dass man es nie probiert hat.

Woran kann man das festmachen? An der Nazi-Keule zum Beispiel. Wenn die andere Seite Nazis sind, dann ist ja wohl ganz klar jede Gegenwehr legitim.

Ich weiß natürlich nicht, ob meine Einschätzung stimmt oder nicht. Aber ich habe mir eine Gegenstrategie zurechtgelegt, die ihr wahrscheinlich schon beobachten konntet hier im Blog. Ich achte darauf, bei allen sich bietetenden Gelegenheiten die moralischen Standards, die wir auf die Gegenseite anwenden, auch auf uns anzuwenden.

Wenn euch das bei mir also nervt, dann wisst ihr jetzt, wieso ich das immer mache.

Macht doch mal eine kleine Übung. Achtet mal darauf, wenn Leute in so Kategorien wie "Rassist", "Nazi", "antiamerikanisch" oder "frauenfeindlich" reden. Achtet mal darauf, ob die im selben Atemzug Sanktionen fordern oder androhen. Dann liegt der Verdacht nahe, finde ich, dass es sich um eine Rationalisierung handelt. Beobachtet das am besten natürlich bei euch selbst. Aber wenn ihr es bei jemand anderem beobachtet, dann probiert doch mal, dazu ein Gespräch zu starten.

Aldi Has Gone Full Organic, Banned Pesticides and Rivals Whole Foods As Healthiest Grocery Store "IndyWatch Feed World"

Did you know that Aldi Sud, a German Supermarket chain that has stores in the United States has banned pesticides toxic to bees! Their ban includes many of the major pesticides used.

The ban itself was announced back in January of 2016, the retailer then expected their fruit and veggie suppliers to comply with the new policy. They ensured this was something that needed to happen as soon as possible. They decided they would no longer tolerate the use of the following pesticides:

  • Thiamethoxam- Applied to lettuce.
  • Chlorpyrifos- Applied to herbs, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, and kale.
  • Deltamethrin- Applied to cauliflower, peppers, cucumbers, peas, tomatoes, and more.
  • Fipronil
  • Cypermethrin
  • Sulfoxaflor

The retailer decided banning these pesticides would be best based off of public pressure. Another German retailer banned the herbicide chemical glyphosate as well.

These pesticides are toxic to bees and glyphosate has been known to fuel many health issues. These pesticides cause serious issues for bee reproduction, navigation, and foraging. These pesticides work to suppress the bees immune system, slowly killing them.

Protecting the bees should be something we consider vital. Without the bees, we cannot exist. As you may know, there have been several things happen to decline the bee population and that needs to end here. Other companies need to follow in the footsteps of Aldi Sud and cut these pesticides out. For our sake and for sake of the bees. For more information on the declining bee population please watch the videos below.


Birds of a Feather "IndyWatch Feed World"

The fact that we’re rather “into birds” should come as no surprise to anyone giving even a quick perusal of this site. In addition to the birds themselves, we enjoy highlighting those who photograph them, those who paint them, those who study them, as well as those who craft them. 

We’re also a big fan of bird guides, so what fun to find one that overlaps the science, the art and the joy of birding!

The Sibley Bird Guides are wonderful to begin with, but this new one is just the thing for the “birder who has everything.”

CIA Document Confirms Reality of Humans with ‘Special Abilities’ Able to Do ‘Impossible’ Things "IndyWatch Feed World"

From the beginning of time, there have been reported incidents of supernatural abilities like telepathy, psychokinesis, and other phenomena. While most of us probably had assumed this had halted, or possibly never even existed, modern day science says that it did exist and probably still does.

These modern age scientists have actually been researching the relationship between mind and matter for over a century. In this quest, they have discovered that there are observable effects on the physical world that were made inside of the mind.

While these effects aren’t often visible to the naked eye, they can be seen on a much deeper level, otherwise known as the quantum level.

The quantum double slit experiment is commonly used to illustrate the connection between consciousness and the physical realm. This experiment in particular shows that observation “not only disturbs what has to be measured, they produce it.”

Max Planck, who originated the quantum theory, said to think of consciousness as “fundamental” and matter as “derivative from consciousness.”

Eugene Wigner, a physicist and mathematician said that “it was not possible to formulate the laws of quantum mechanics in a fully consistent way without reference to consciousness.”

The CIA Document

The document, titled “Chronology of Recent Interest in Exceptional Functions of the Human Body in the People’s Republic of China.” In this document, there is an outline of government interest in supernatural abilities.

In the Stargate program, the US government openly showed an interest in similar abilities.

That program, in particular, lasted over 20 years before the public was told.

Here is a brief outline of the document:

-In 1979, a major Chinese science journal, Ziran Zachi (Nature Journal), carried a report on “non-visual pattern recognition” in which numerous accounts of exceptional human body function were confirmed. As a result, an unofficial preliminary organization to study this type of thing under the watch of Nature Journal

-In 1980, the Journal and the Chinese Human Body Science Association...

Bureaucracy, particularly in our part of the world is not easily attuned to public communication and its demands. “Less is more”, “need to know basis”, “information is power” are all zealously embedded truisms that are imbibed and intoned with great faith and conviction. When we do communicate, dexterity is a casualty. The issue of perfect pitch and a good listening ear scarcely applies. Elegance of articulation instead of being a prized asset is often undervalued. Officialdom inhabits its own neck of the woods and its own echo chamber. The world outside is not internalised sufficiently when it comes to adapting, adjusting and calibrating means and methods of articulation. 

Government websites (with a few outstanding exceptions) are not appealing or attractive in their construction and display, in contrast to those of India’s Western or East Asian counterparts. They seem to resemble long laundry lists and are designed to overwhelm rather than ensure audience interest or a loyal following among viewers and users, especially those outside the country.

Information is the precious resource that the government commands, but its mere possession does not make it a force multiplier. The proactive flow of this information, the crafting of press statements and fact sheets, the ability to troubleshoot in a strateg...

Here Is What Donald Trump Wants To Do In His First 100 Days "IndyWatch Feed Pacific"

After Donald Trump’s victory in the 2016 presidential election, many Americans are left to wonder what his agenda will be once the president-elect takes office.

If you are one of those people, the Trump campaign has released his “Contract with the American Voter,” which outlines a 100-day action plan to “restore prosperity to our, economy, security to our communities and honesty to our government.”

The plan promises that in the first 100 days Trump will focus on tax reforms and relief, an infrastructure package, the repealing of ObamaCare and an illegal immigration act.

Here is the full text of Trump’s plan:

What follows is my 100-day action plan to Make America Great Again. It is a contract between myself and the American voter — and begins with restoring honesty, accountability, and change to Washington

Therefore, on the first day of my term of office, my administration will immediately pursue the following six measures to clean up the corruption and special interest collusion in Washington, DC:

FIRST, propose a Constitutional Amendment to impose term limits on all members of Congress;

SECOND, a hiring freeze on all federal employees to reduce federal workforce through attrition (exempting military, public safety, and public health);

THIRD, a requirement that for every new federal regulation, two existing regulations must be eliminated;

FOURTH, a 5 year-ban on White House and Congressional officials becoming lobbyists after they leave government service;

FIFTH, a lifetime ban on White House officials lobbying on behalf of a foreign government;

SIXTH, a complete ban on foreign lobbyists raising money for American elections.

On the same day, I will begin taking the following 7 actions to protect American workers:

FIRST, I will announce my intention to renegotiate NAFTA or withdraw from the deal under Article 2205

SECOND, I will announce our withdrawal from the Trans-Pacific Partnership

THIRD, I will direct my Secretary of the Treasury to label China a currency manipulator

FOURTH, I will direct the Secretary of Commerce and U.S. Trade Representative to identify all foreign trading abuses that unfairly impact American workers and direct them to use every tool under American and international law to end those abuses immediately

FIFTH, I will lift the restrictions on the production of $50 trillion dollars’ worth of job-producing American energy reserves, including shale, oil, natural gas and clean coal.

SIXTH, lift the Obama-Clinton roadblocks and allow vital energy infrastructure projects,...

The True Sharing Economy: Inaugurating an Age of the Heart "IndyWatch Feed War"

Any act that tries to contribute towards ending the prevalent suffering caused by absolute poverty is, in itself, the purest expression of a sharing economy via the heart, via our maturity and via common sense, especially if that act is focused on trying to persuade our political representatives to commit to sharing the resources of the world.


What is the sharing economy, and what is its meaning and significance for the world we live in today? If you try and investigate this question through the internet, there are many debates and misleading definitions that you will soon come across. The sharing economy is commonly understood as a rising phenomenon of the new millennium that leverages information technology through peer-to-peer platforms, empowering individuals to share goods and services through bartering, leasing or the swapping of private assets. There is also a revival of non-monetised initiatives under this broad umbrella which enable communities to share more in their daily lives, whether it’s through informal groups that come together with a common aim and purpose, or cooperative endeavours that provide shared access to skills, time, knowledge and productive spaces. Despite some controversies that have dogged the most popular initiatives in recent years, many of their leading advocates continue to have an idealistic vision of how the sharing economy can help to catalyse a social transition towards a more egalitarian, participatory and environmentally sustainable world.

But are these technology-driven innovations and primarily market-mediated forms of exchange really the sum total of what it means to ‘share’ in modern societies? And is it true that the sharing economy is still in its infancy today, as is so often stated by those who comment on this fast expanding trend? The fact is that sharing has always been with us as a distinctly human characteristic, and even applies to the sub-human kingdoms of nature as well as the higher spiritual realms that are much hypothesised in esoteric philosophy. We have always shared within our homes and families without the need for smartphones and high technology, which would include the sharing of food, heating and the other basic necessities of life, as well as the living space, conviviality and mutual support that is fundamental to our health and prosperity. We share the common lands with our neighbours and communities; we share the roads, the public transport, the air and nature that surrounds us. Humanity would never have survived since the arrival of the earliest hominin unless we practised sharing on an interpersonal and communal basis, which is an evolutionary trait that behavioural scientists and anthropologists have long recognised as intrinsic to our essential nature.

It is also a trait that is necessarily expressed, however incipiently or insufficiently, on both national and global levels through the intervention of go...

Billionaire Globalist Soros Exposed as Hidden Hand Behind Trump Protests — Provoking US ‘Color Revolution’ "IndyWatch Feed World"

Billionaire globalist financier George Soros’ has been revealed to be a driving force behind the organizing of nationwide protests against the election of Donald Trump — exposing the protests to largely be an organized, top-down operation — and not an organic movement of concerned Americans taking to the streets as reported by the mainstream media.

Wednesday saw protests in the streets of at least 10 major U.S. cities. Chicago, New York, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Boston, Washington, D.C., Portland, Ore., St. Paul, Minn., Seattle, and several other cities saw protests, according to USA Today.

In light of the protests and rioting that have transpired since the election of Trump, a closer analysis of the dynamic at play is warranted to gauge whether it’s an organic grassroots movement, or something much more organized, sophisticated and potentially dangerous.

USA-North Korea: US Experts Offer Strategies "IndyWatch Feed Asia"

3412312312Continuing the topic of the American reaction to the development of North Korea’s Nuclear and Missile Programme, it can be noted that the expert opinions on “what to do and who is to blame” are quite different. Different camps encourage (or disapprove) different versions of the American response on the basis of a very similar set of input data.

Here, we will look at three studies representing various think tanks and political camps.

  • materials drawn up by Jane Harman, the Director of The Woodrow Wilson International Center, former Congressman, and her colleague James Pearson, an expert on Korean issues, published in The Washington Post (supporters of negotiations);
  • the works of Evans Revere, a former diplomat, the Ex-President of the Korean Society and the head of the Albright Stonebridge Group think tank (supporter of hard pressure measures);
  • materials drawn up by Richard Haass, the head of Council on Foreign Relations think tank, a former head of Planning Division of the US Department of State, prepared for publication at The Strategist (focuses on prognostics and risks assessment).

The Current Situation

Each of the three authors notes that the development of the North Korea’s Nuclear and Missile Programme will mean the next President of the United States faces a very serious challenge, and it requires a different policy – not Obama’s strategic patience.

The following theses are common to all three materials:

  • North Korea has adapted to life with sanctions. It creates and tests ballistic missiles and nuclear warheads regardless. As J. Harman and J. Pearson wrote, “for years we have applied severe unilateral and multilateral sanctions in an attempt to force North Korea to denuclearize”, but “the chosen strategy has not worked”.
  • Moreover, the effectiveness of sanctions is limited due to China’s position. J. Harman and J. Pearson believe that China considers the occurrence of a unified Korea in alliance with the USA as a worse scenario than North Korea with nuclear weapons. Meanwhile, as long as Be...

TRUMP? Terrifying card game looks like it has predicted the potential president’s death

NeonNettle| An Illuminati card game which predicted the death of Princess Diana, 9/11 and the B.P oil spill has also predicted the assassination of Donald trump. The game, which has stirred many conspiracy theories, has been so accurate that many people are starting to take it seriously.

The DailyStar reports: It looks almost certain that Trump will win the keys to the White House, but this horrifying game has predicted he won’t get anywhere near it.

Conspiracy theorists believe the game may have depicted future events before they happened with terrifying accuracy.

Steve Jackson’s Illuminati: The Game of Conspiracy was released in 1995, well before many of the shocking moments it predicts.

But with the billionaire tycoon steaming his way towards the White House, this creepy game appears to predict that he will not see election day on November 8.

The card, titled Enough is Enough, is thought to hold an image similar to an angry-looking Trump, 70, taken in 2011.

Why Trump Won the Presidency "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

In an earlier post prior to the election I observed that, “The US has been on the road to fascism for a long time. Both Democrats and Republicans have for decades been advancing the same agenda of ceding power to transnational mega-corporations and the global banking cartel. So called “free trade” agreements are simply ways of allowing capital to more freely, exploit labor and the environment, and forcing governments to guarantee their profits.

Changes in financial regulations, like the repeal of Glass-Steagall under Bill Clinton in 1999, have enabled banking companies to grow to monstrous size (“too big to fail”) and to more easily cheat the clients they are supposed to serve.”

Now Jordan Chariton, while he does not call it fascism, details this trend in his article, Trump’s victory over Clinton was sealed 40 years ago. He points out that Bill Clinton continued the trend that began under Ronal Reagan, and that it was Clinton who presided over the deregulation of the Telecom Industry, repeal of Glass-Steagall, deregulation of credit-default swaps, loosened banking rules, and NAFTA, all of which contributed to the dismantling of American manufacturing and the decline of the American middle class.

He concludes that “The GOP, and Donald Trump, is not the answer. Unfortunately, a cowardly and corrupt Democratic Party let millions of people think they are.”

I am inclined to agree with Paul Waldman who wrote in the Washington Post If you voted for Trump because he’s ‘anti-establishment,’ guess what: You got conned. He says:
“An organizational chart of Trump’s transition team shows it to be crawling with corporate lobbyists, representing such clients as Altria, Visa, Coca-Cola, General Electric, Verizon, HSBC, Pfizer, Dow Chemical, and Duke Energy. And K Street is positively salivating over all the new opportunities they’ll have to deliver goodies to their clients in the Trump era.”

Another indication of that reality is the stock market surge on the day after the election. The companies that gained the most were banks, weapons manufacturers, and drug companies.

No, Donald Trump is not the one who will “make America great again.” That is a job that needs to be done by you and me and all of us working together to find common ground and create new systems and structures that are honest, open, transparent and consistent with our most fundamental values.

Hollowed Souls and The Inescapable Box, Donald Trump Edition "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

Written by Grant G

Donald Trump's presidential victory...

I have difficulty in describing the hollow feeling within, my internal compass was and is still spinning wildly, not knowing what direction to point, an emptiness filled my soul after Donald Trump triumphed and I'm not an American nor do I live in that country so it's easy to relate to the despair 50 million Americans are feeling..

Alone, that's how I felt when my father died, depressed and bitter when my long lived animal companions perished in a house fire, but never before did I feel hollow, dad left me direction and a moral compass, my feline family members left me resolve to start anew and Jinnycat has more than filled the void..

I was not a Hillary Clinton fan, believed the democratic party didn't try hard enough to give America a fresh choice, Clinton..Bush..never do I want to see those names on a presidential ballot again..

The Klu Klux Klan is making plans for a December 3rd victory march in Pelham North Carolina  and yes Donald Trump is saying he disavows that racist club but does he really, a wink nod campaign, Donald Trump alluded to 2nd amendment fanatics and NRA people to stop Hillary in a not so subtle assassination threat..even at Trump's election night victory party his supporters were calling for Hillary Clinton to be locked up..

Did I know racism was so rampant in America, not to this extent, a rural suburban divide, a division of the educated, a division of colour, a division of voters who live in diverse multi-coloured cities against nearly all white rural counties and no, it's not right to paint voters with a broad-brush but one can't overlook or ignore the demographics...Donald Trump attracted older white male votes, older white female votes and votes from the least educated Americans...the same demographic that voted for Stephen Harper in our last federal election...

Americans marching and in some cases protesting violently from coast to coast and Trump has yet to do a single legislative thing or use any presidential executive order, those privileges don't kick in for a few months and I don't see how Donald Trump can do anything to pacify Americans on either side of the political spe...

15 Illustrations Depicting The Difference Between Real Love And Passion "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"


It’s easy to fall in like, but what about true love? Finding someone – a companion, a friend, a lover – who is willing to accept you not only at your best but also your worst is not as easy as romantic comedies portray it to be.

Fortunately, illustrations provided by Bright Side offer a unique perspective of what true love vs passion really is. Real love is realizing that no one is perfect, but that it’s possible to find a companion who complements you. Passion is losing interest in a lover after they gain weight, become injured, or reveal their awful fashion sense.

In today’s world, approximately 2/3 of marriages end in divorce. Perhaps if more people understood what real love truly is, this wouldn’t be the issue it is. Scroll the photos below to learn more:

Regulation of the Internet of Things "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

Late last month, popular websites like Twitter, Pinterest, Reddit and PayPal went down for most of a day. The distributed denial-of-service attack that caused the outages, and the vulnerabilities that made the attack possible, was as much a failure of market and policy as it was of technology. If we want to secure our increasingly computerized and connected world, we need more government involvement in the security of the "Internet of Things" and increased regulation of what are now critical and life-threatening technologies. It's no longer a question of if, it's a question of when.

First, the facts. Those websites went down because their domain name provider — a company named Dyn —­ was forced offline. We don't know who perpetrated that attack, but it could have easily been a lone hacker. Whoever it was launched a distributed denial-of-service attack against Dyn by exploiting a vulnerability in large numbers ­— possibly millions — of Internet-of-Things devices like webcams and digital video recorders, then recruiting them all into a single botnet. The botnet bombarded Dyn with traffic, so much that it went down. And when it went down, so did dozens of websites.

Your security on the Internet depends on the security of millions of Internet-enabled devices, designed and sold by companies you've never heard of to consumers who don't care about your security.

The technical reason these devices are insecure is complicated, but there is a market failure at work. The Internet of Things is bringing computerization and connectivity to many tens of millions of devices worldwide. These devices will affect every aspect of our lives, because they're things like cars, home appliances, thermostats, lightbulbs, fitness trackers, medical devices, smart streetlights and sidewalk squares. Many of these devices are low-cost, designed and built offshore, then rebranded and resold. The teams building these devices don't have the security expertise we've come to expect from the major computer and smartphone manufacturers, simply because the market won't stand for the additional costs that would require. These devices don't get security updates like our more expensive computers, and many don't even have a way to be patched. And, unlike our computers and phones, they stay around for years and decades.



Donald Psyop Trump: Soon We’ll Know For Sure "IndyWatch Feed Economics"


Donald Psyop Trump: Soon We’ll Know For Sure by John Galt This series of posts focused on one contention: the Donald Trump “phenomenon” is an elaborate psychological operation devised for nefarious purposes by powers-that-be, rather than a true rebellious, grass-root movement. If true, he had to be elected; however the fact he just did obviously doesn’t prove…

Do Progressives Really Find “White Trash” More Threatening Than Nuclear War? "IndyWatch Feed Pacific"

By Tyler Durden

Authored by Paul Craig Roberts,

The American electorate’s preference for Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders has established two facts. One is that the majority of the American people do not believe the media presstitutes. The other is that only the “progressives” and “liberals” who inhabit the Atlantic Northeast and Pacific West coasts believe the presstitutes.

Trump’s election to the presidency has confirmed these holier-than-thou souls in their strongly held belief that America is a white trash racist country. They have told us this all day long today.

From these people and from the presstitutes we hear that white supremacy elected Trump. This is their propaganda, the intention of which is to discredit a Trump administration before it is inaugurated. Funny how white supremacy elected black Obama twice previously.

Truthout has lost it completely. John Knefel declares “The David Dukes of the World Prevail.”

Kelly Hayes declares “White Supremacy Elected Donald Trump.”

William Rivers Pitt declares “We have elected a fascist that Mussolini would have recognized on sight.”

Hillary carried only a handful of states, the states that comprise the One Percent’s stomping grounds. Yet Amy Goodman of Democracy Now sees meaning in political writer John Nichols claim that as Hillary carried New York and California, she won the popular vote and should be in the White House. I remember a few days ago George Soros saying that Trump would win the popular vote, but that the electoral vote would go to Hillary, thus ridding the oligarchs of Trump.

Earth Justice promises to hold Trump accountable. Trump who promises to end the threat of nuclear war with Russia and China, thereby doing more to save animal and human life than the entirety of the Democratic Party and environmental organizations, is going to be held accountable by an organization that allegedly is beyond...

MicroLisp With Matching Parens "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

Lisp is a supremely elegant programming language, but you won’t find it around much today. That’s a shame; in the 80s and 90s, all the cool kids were using Lisp machines, computers dedicated to the creation and interpretation of Lisp. While the AI renaissance of the 80s is dead, replaced with the machine learning fad of today, Lisp machines have gotten much smaller. Now, they’ll fit in your pocket, and they have parenthesis matching, to boot.

If this build looks familiar, you’re not wrong. A while back, we saw a similar pocket Lisp computer based around the ATMega328 microcontroller with 32k of Flash and 2k of RAM. That’s not a lot by any measure, and a much more suitable processor for an AVR-based pocket Lisp machine would be the big boys of the ATMega family.

Apart from the larger chip, the circuit remains relatively unchanged. The display is still an OLED that can be had for a few dollars from the usual online retailers, and the other bits of circuitry are still just a handful of resistors, caps, and wire. An off-the-shelf FTDI module (or whatever serial chip you desire) can be added to connect to a serial terminal, and support for a PS/2 keyboard rounds out the board.

The anti-Trump protesters are tools of the oligarchy. Their objective: Delegitimize Donald, install "Madam President" "IndyWatch Feed World"

"Reform always provokes rage on the part of those who profit by the old order." Arthur M. Schlesinger, Jr., The Crisis of the Old Order Who are the anti-Trump protesters besmirching the name of progressives by pretending to be progresives and by refusing to accept the outcome of the presidential election? They look like, and are acting worse than, the "white trash" that they are denouncing. I think I know who they are. They are thugs for hire and are paid by the Oligarchy to delegitimize Trump's presidency in the way that Washington and the German Marshall Fund paid students in Kiev to protest the democratically elected Ukrainian government in order to prepare the way for a coup. The organization,, which claims to be a progressive group, but might be a front, along with other progressive groups, for the Oligarchy, is destroying the reputation of all progressives by circulating a petition that directs the electors of the Electoral Collage to annul the election by casting their votes for Hillary. Remember how upset progressives were when Trump said he might not accept the election result if there was evidence that the vote was rigged? Now progressives are doing what they damned Trump for saying he might do under certain conditions.

NYC Mayor threatens to destroy IDNYC database containing personal info of nearly 500,000 illegal immigrants "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

 Mayor Bill de Blasio shills for Soros; positions to block Trump Admin from acquiring database 

NEW YORK CITY (INTELLIHUB) — The city’s Mayor Bill de Blasio told the press on Thursday Thursday that he may have to destroy records kept by the city which contain limited personal information on nearly 500,000 illegal immigrants residing within the city.

The 2015 IDNYC program, aimed at documenting illegal residents, provides illegal aliens with a means to maneuver within the city and function as a typical American citizen as part of a vast scheme concocted by billionaire tycoon and Black Lives Matter promoter George Soros, which ultimately makes NYC a ‘sanctuary city.’

“We’re not going to tear families apart. So we will do everything we know how to do to resist that,” de Blasio said, promoting illegal immigration.

“We’re not going to take anything lying down.”

IDNYC cardholders personal information is stored in encrypted databases on secure servers and may be of interest to the Trump Administration, de Blasio fears.

The mayor plans to block the Trump Administration from subpoenaing the databases in question, if that issue were ever to arise at a future time.

List of DOXXED Officials Who Are Responsible For Militarizing Standing Rock Police and How To Contact Them "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"


Cannonball, ND – While there is certainly no lack of blame to go around as to who is responsible for the standoff taking place at Standing Rock, numerous specific government officials are directly responsible for turning the peaceful protest in something resembling a militarized war zone.

The increased militarism on the part of the state began when North Dakota Gov. Jack Dalrymple declared a state of emergency in response to the growing protests against the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL).

Morton County Sheriff Kyle Kirchmeier then utilized the Emergency Management Assistance compact to call on law enforcement agencies in six states surrounding North Dakota – with numerous police agencies from neighboring states responding.

Last Thursday, the heavily militarized police engaged in a violent raid on the “Treaty Camp” — which saw over 140 people arrested — using heavy weapons, rubber bullets, chemical weapons and armored police tanks. The vicious assault was caught on video by many of the water protectors and journalists covering the protests.

Less than a week later, law enforcement again responded violently – this time to water protectors attempting to build a wooden footbridge across a creek linking a Native encampment and the Dakota Access Pipeline construction area for a prayer ceremony.

People nationwide have taken notice of the brutality being perpetrated against the water protectors, and have begun taking s...
