Another AATIP Defense Intelligence Reference Document author? "IndyWatch Feed National"

Defense Intelligence Reference Documents (DIRDs)

In a blog post dated 2 June 2018, I wrote about a number of DIRDs which had been prepared for the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) under their Advanced Aerospace Weapon System Applications (AAWSA) program.

Various individuals, commissioned under an AAWSA sub-contract to the Institute of Advanced Studies, based in Austin, Texas, were asked to look into the future, in a variety of areas, and write a DIRD on their specialty.

One of the sub-contractors, Dr Eric Davis, in a radio interview on the 'Coast to Coast' show, on 28 January 2018, said that DIRD authors were asked to imagine our earthly technology; extrapolate it to 2050, then compare what we might have by then, against what we saw of the phenomenon in that era (around 2009.)

We currently know that 38 DIRDs were authored, with 36 of them being 'unclassified.' We also know the titles of six DIRDs which Dr Davis authored/co-authored; and one title by Dr Hal Puthoff.

About My Brother Stephen Wesley Shurter "IndyWatch Feed National"

Two things stuck with me about what Mesner wrote about my brother. First he wouldnt mention his name and the second was that he made a point to say he was homeless.

When you hear someone is homeless- you assume they dont have anything. After my brother died- I have to admit that I assumed the same thing until I spoke to my late sister Cindys daughter Melissa.

I remarked that he had died with nothing and she told me you would be surprised at the things he had when he died . It was that comment- and how she said it- that made me curious.

My brother was always in and out of jail throughout his life. His wife Jenny went to prison for having sex with underage boys. And my brother Stephen and my sister Cindy were very close- as he lived with her and her family the Hesters often throughout his life.

The same family that is working diligently with Mesner to try and shut me up. The same family that dealt with whatever my brother had when he died- as it was THEY who were around him when he passed.

This could explain why Mesner is working so close with them. Why he refused to say my brothers name- and why he made it a point to say he was homeless. Of course he did this with one of his many aliases- this time as Justin Sanity. But it was Mesner- working in conjunction with Cindys kids- nonetheless.

But this explains why and gives motive. Both my sister Cindy and my brother Stephen stayed with and supported our fathers activities until he died. Cindys family has just carried on with the family tradition.

And Doug Mesner aka John Kilrush aka Satanic Temples founder Lucien Greaves aka IEATBABIES aka (his REAL name Doug Misicko) is doing all he can to protect that tradition all the while obsessively claiming it isnt real and doesnt exist.

What no one knows for certain concerning this fact is WHY? Whats his motive? His REAL motive?

I mean- it isnt like he doesnt have a non for profit connection with children himself with his Satanic after-school daycare program because he does. Scary thought considering he goes out of his way to discredit others abuse as children.


TA505 gang abusing PDF files embedding SettingContent-ms to distribute FlawedAmmyy RAT "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

Proofpoint uncovered a massive malspam campaign leveraging emails delivering weaponized PDF documents containing malicious SettingContent-ms files.

Security experts from Proofpoint have uncovered a massive malspam campaign, crooks sent hundreds of thousands of emails delivering weaponized PDF documents containing malicious SettingContent-ms files.

Experts attributed the malspam campaign to the cybercriminal group tracked as TA505, the attackers are spreading the FlawedAmmyy RAT.

The SettingContent-ms file format was implemented in Windows 10 to allows a user to create shortcuts to various Windows 10 setting pages.

Thi file opens the Control Panel for the user [control.exe], experts noticed that it includes the  element in the schema.

SettingContent-ms files

This element takes any binary with parameters and executes it, this means that an attacker can substitute control.exe with a malicious script that could execute any command, including cmd.exe and PowerShell, without user interaction.

After countless hours reading file specifications, I stumbled across the .SettingContent-ms file type. This format was introduced in Windows 10 and allows a user to create shortcuts to various Windows 10 setting pages. These files are simply XML and contain paths to various Windows 10 settings binaries. wrote experts from Specterops.

Repairing a Capacitor inside a Potted Transformer "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

We always enjoy watching [Mr. Carlsons] videos because he looks like he is taping in a rocket ship set from a 1950s drive-in movie. In a recent video, he identified an old oscilloscope that had a transformer assembly that is potted with a pair of capacitor inside. The capacitor failed so [Carlson] decided he would repair it. The problem? The transformer and capacitor are potted together with some sort of tar compound. You can see the result in the video below.

He actually didnt know for sure the capacitor was really in the transformer, but they were in the schematic and by process of elimination, it had to be inside. Once he liberated the transformer, he did some tests to identify the capacitor before the depotting. The depotting takes a lot of heat and could damage the transformer, so he wanted to make sure it was really in there.

Almost as interesting as the depotting is the preparation. Because the transformer still worked, he took careful measurements of the secondary voltages and also marked the wires in an unusual way with markers (we just use little tags on the wires).

The start of the process was a bit mechanical to remove grommets, but the main part took a toaster oven with a temperature control. He actually cut a hole in the oven to fit the transformer so he could work on the device while it was heated. He actually did the hot work outside which was wise since there is no telling what the potting compound from the 1930s has in it.

We were surprised at how cleanly the transformer came out. We wondered if a modern epoxy potting compound would release this easily and cleanly. The transformer was in a little cardboard box which probably made it easier to remove.

Inside the box? Two capacitors as predicted. The repair was quick and then it was just a matter of putting it back together with a new cardboard box, some rivets, and new grommets.

Weve talked about more modern potting methods. If you want to know more about transformer theory, we have that too.

"The Schizophrenic Deep State is a Symptom, Not the Disease" "IndyWatch Feed World"

"The Schizophrenic Deep State is a Symptom, 
Not the Disease"
by Charles Hugh Smith

"If we consider the state of the nation from 40,000 feet, several key indicators of profound political disunity within the elites pop out:

1. The overt politicization of the central state's law enforcement and intelligence agencies: it is now commonplace to find former top officials of the CIA et al. accusing a sitting president of treason in the mainstream media. What was supposed to be above politics is now nothing but politics.

2. The overt politicization of the centralized (corporate) media: evidence that would stand up in a court of law is essentially non-existent but the interpretations and exaggerations that fit the chosen narrative are ceaselessly promoted--the classic definition of desperate propaganda by those who have lost the consent of the governed. The nation's elites are not just divided--they're exhibiting signs of schizophrenic breakdown: disassociation and a loss of the ability to discern the difference between reality and their internal fantasies.

I've been writing about the divided Deep State for a number of years, for example, "The Conflict within the Deep State Just Broke into Open Warfare." The topic appears to be one of widespread interest, as this essay drew over 300,000...


RIP Adrian Cronauer "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

Adrian Cronauer, the real live DJ portrayed by Robin Williams in the movie "Good Morning Vietnam" just passed, (many other obits also available).

Keen to travel, Cronauer says he actually volunteered for a transfer to Vietnam, where he was hired initially as a news director for Armed Forces Radio there.

After his morning presenter left, he took up the 06:00 Dawn Buster show mantle, greeting troops with an enthusiastic yell of: "GOOOOOOOOD morning, Vietnam!"

Cronauer soon found out while interviewing troops that his ironic salute was often met with "the GI equivalent of: Get stuffed Cronauer" on bad days, he recounted at a veterans event in 2008.

"On one occasion, a guy picked up his M16 and blew away his radio," he told the Americans Veterans Centre conference.

Did any Soylentils hear him live in Vietnam?

Hillary Clinton: Trump-Putin a mystery, Russia may attack election infrastructure "IndyWatch Feed War"

Hillary Clinton has criticized Donald Trumps performance at the Helsinki summit earlier this week, calling his failure to tackle Vladimir Putin over Russian interference in the 2016 US election deeply disturbing and a mystery.

Speaking at OzyFest  a festival of talks and music in Central Park, New York on Saturday, Clinton also said Russian agents were targeting the November midterm elections in a renewed attempt to disrupt US democracy, and could this time attack election infrastructure such as the servers you send results to and the operations of voting machines.

Clinton beat Trump by nearly 3m ballots in the popular vote in 2016, but lost in the electoral college. She was secretary of state in the Obama administration.

In Central Park, she outlined the extent of Russian interference as depicted in the recent indictments of 12 Russian intelligence officers by special counsel Robert Mueller.

It was a very broad and a very successful cyber attack on our electoral system, she said. The attack goes to the heart of our democracy. The great mystery is why the president has not spoken up for our country.

Calling the attacks really distressing and alarming, she said: It should concern every single American.

Clinton also called for clarity on what was said in the two-hour, one-on-one meeting between Trump and Putin that preceded their joint press conference in Helsinki.

We dont know what was said in the room between them, she said. Putin is telling the world what was said but we hear crickets from the White House. Make no mistake this is a direct attack on our democracy. The idea that we are not sure where our own president stands is deeply disturb...

In an unusual move, the French police force has agreed to four Moroccan officers patrolling in Paris in a bid to tackle problematic migrant youngsters. Authorities hope the use of officers from a Muslim background will help reduce issues on the streets of the French capital. But that leaves the question should police from Muslim countries patrol Western cities?

Italian coastguard staff break silence to express concern over government migrant policy "IndyWatch Feed War"

The decision by Italys new populist government to close the countrys ports to migrants saved at sea is causing unease within the heart of the Italian coastguard, some staff say, who until recently played a key role in rescue missions.
Image result for Italy, coastguard, photos

Over the last decade the coastguard has coordinated the rescue of hundreds of thousands of migrants off the coast of Libya, in many cases pulling them from the water themselves in treacherous conditions.

But as of June, they have been ordered to transfer calls for help and reports of boats in distress to the Libyan capital Tripoli.

Image result for Italy, coastguard, photos

Now despite a culture of traditionally not criticizing government policy a handful of coastguard staff have spoken out.

In an interview with Italian daily Il Sole 24 Ore last week, a coastguard admiral criticized the government and in particular the nationalist interior minister Matteo Salvinis new hardline stance.

Speaking on condition of anonymity, the admiral recalled that the Italian justice system had deemed Libya was not a safe place for rescued people to returned to. Many migrants trying to reach Europe are desperate not to go back to Libya as they potentially face abuse and rape in detention centres.

The admiral also denounced the absence of an official decree or act regarding the decision to close the countrys ports to vessels carrying migrants. In recent weeks the policy has left the coastguard powerless as several ships with rescued migrants aboard spent days stranded in the Mediterranean unable to dock in Italy.

In Nicaragua, is Operation Contra bis failing? "IndyWatch Feed War"

Thrown under the spotlight since mid-April, the homeland of Sandino is still facing an intense political crisis. From now on, the crisis seems to be approaching its final resolution. On the one hand, the Nicaraguan people are mobilizing more and more alongside the authorities to help them dismantle barricades in insurgent spots. And on the other hand, in one week two big demonstrations for peace took place. Against the wishes of an opposition camp and spokespersons of the US administration, the message of Daniel Ortega during the march for peace of July 7 in Managua was crystal clear: Here it is the people who set the rules in the Constitution of the Republic. They will not change overnight by the will of some coup leaders. If the putschists want to come to the government, let them seek the peoples vote in the next elections. With all the destruction they have provoked, we will see what support they will have. But these facts are minimized by the private media and major news agencies, which continue to hide the evolution on the ground and blow on the embers of the dispute. Which side will tip the scales?


A dreadful propaganda scheme

In a recent article, I examined a number of contradictions in the treatment by international media of Nicaragua. Notably, one can recognize one of the principles of war propaganda which is to reverse the aggressor and the victim. The scheme works as follows: first, an opposition sector, one that refuses dialogue with the government, plans to control some parts of the capital and other cities by means of barricades. These areas are then considered liberated from tyranny, and thus represent the hearth of insurgency that must recur throughout the country, to defeat the operations of repression of police forces. This tactic of deploying barricades has been theorized as an effective means of preventing the authorities from gaining control over the national territory, because it is impossible for the government to have enough personnel to control every inch of the country. The first obvious thing to emphasize is that this is not a completely spontaneous crisis that emerges from a massive popular mobilization, but that there is indeed an insurrectional plan in place capable of standing up to the authorities for months. We are witnessing the first phase in the development of an unconventional war to overthrow a democratically elected government.

Then, a number of clashes take place in these areas liberated by the opposition. At this point, it is not trivial to note that the activists who defend these barricades are no longer peaceful protesters that the mainstream media has portrayed.

War fears mount despite cease-fire between Gaza and Israel "IndyWatch Feed War"

After seven chaotic and violent hours, quiet returned to the Gaza Strip Friday night. Yet on Saturday, civilians in the Palestinian enclave and Israel remained fearful of the potential for a new war.

The fatal shooting by a Palestinian sniper of an Israeli soldier during protests along the border on Friday sparked a widespread wave of Israeli bombing, with three fighters from Hamas killed and dozens of targets struck.

After intensive indirect mediation by the UN and Egypt, a truce came into force at midnight, yet both populations remained on high alert of another all-out conflict between Israel and Hamas.

War is coming. I know that the (Israeli) occupation is carrying out raids to pave the way with their home base, Somaya Rabaya, 21, from Deir Al-Balah in central Gaza, said.

While the cease-fire deal included an end to rockets and mortars, it didnt include a commitment by Hamas to stop what Israeli media have dubbed terror kites, a senior Hamas source said.

In a brief statement on Saturday, Hamas spokesman Fawzi Barhoum said the movement accepted the cease-fire brokered by Egyptian and UN officials and that calm had been restored. Later, the Israeli military announced a return to civilian routine along the volatile border.

I hate being stuck up here, glaciated, hard all over
and with my guts removed: my old lady is not going

Me: all hollow inside with longing for the marae on
the cliff at Kohimarama, where you can watch the ships
come in curling their white moustaches

Why didnt they stick me next to Mickey Savage?
Now then, he was a good bloke
Maybe it was a Tory City Council that put me here

They never consulted me about naming the square
Its a wonder they never called it: Hori-in-the-gorge-at-
bottom-of-Hill. Because it is like that: a gorge,
with the sun blocked out, the wind whistling around
your balls (your balls mate) And at night, how I
feel for the beatle-girls with their long-haired
boy-friends licking their frozen finger-chippy lips
hopefully. And me again beetling

my tent eye-brows forever, like a brass monkey with
real worries: I mean, how the hell can you welcome
the Overseas Dollar, if you cant open your mouth
to poke your tongue out, eh?

Classic Aussie Crime Drama: Water Rats S01 E19 Floater "IndyWatch Feed Pacific"


Water Rats is an Australian TV police procedural broadcast on the Nine Network from 1996 to 2001. The series was based on work of the men and women of the Sydney Water Police who fight crime around Sydney Harbour and surrounding locales. The show was set on and around Goat Island in Sydney Harbour.

Water Rats premiered on 12 February 1996, and ran for six seasons and 177 episodes. Colin Friels and Catherine McClements were the original stars of the series and were instrumental in the shows early success. They both departed the show in 1999. In later seasons, Steve Bisley, Aaron Pedersen and Dee Smart became the shows main stars.

For the sixth and final season in 2001, the show concentrated more on the cops personal lives rather than just focusing on the crimes committed. The Nine Network cancelled the show after six seasons. Executive Producer Kris Noble blamed escalating costs for the cancellation. However, Bisley and Smart had also just quit the show, and the series had already been suffering a ratings battle following the departure of Friels and McClements in 1999.

Can Trade Secrets Litigation Replace (in Part) Patent Litigation? "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

Recent: Number of US Patent Lawsuits Was More Than 50% Higher Half a Decade Ago

Patent Lawyers' Tears
Patent Lawyers Tears

Summary: Seeing DTSA as an opportunity to combat their competition, more firms now choose to file trade secret cases whereas patent cases continue their sharp decline

WHEN IT comes to software (code), there are copyrights, but there are no patents. Those that get granted rarely survive a courts challenge or a boards scrutiny (this is scarcely explored in the EU, but very visible in the US). Dont expect European Patents on software to be of much use, even if the EPO grants some (a disastrous residue of Battistellis trashing of the Office).

Patents are about publication, whereas secrecy is about concealment of ones work.When it comes to software copyrights, or even copyleft, legal action can be taken in cases of plagiarism. If the code is secret, which is often the case, plagiarism is prevented in part by secrecy. Patents are about publication, whereas secrecy is about concealment of ones work.

After the sharp decline in patent lawsuits there might be a shift in strategy in the US, reducing the role of patent courts and the USPTO. More trade secret disputes to come? We recently wrote about a rise of such cases and associated damages. Professor James Bessen told me that FEDERAL trade secret litigation is up because there is a new Federal law; but trade secret & noncompete litigation has been rising for a decade

Well, secrecy is far from ideal; in fact, publication in exchange for monopoly (patent) is often better, but not in the domain of software.Mind Camilla Alexandra Hrdys very long......


Statement: No Fascists at HOPE "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

The post Statement: No Fascists at HOPE appeared first on It's Going Down.

Report from HOPE Conference, a gathering of hackers, which pushed to have several Alt-Right trolls removed.

On Saturday, 2600 and HOPE Conference organizers refused to remove fascist and white nationalist disruptors from HOPE 2018including a man who appeared to be carrying a concealed weapon and who bragged about marching in the #UniteTheRight white nationalist rally in Charlottesville. HOPE claims to provide a harassment-free conference experience for everyone, however, on multiple occasions when the fascist attendees were reported to security for intimidation and harassment, HOPE security refused to intervene and even defended their presence at the event. The fascist attendees menaced other conference goers, cornering them, following them down the street, and threatening them; one even called the police on a conference attendee in retaliation for grabbing his hat. Following numerous complaints, HOPE finally expelled one white nationalist (with a full refund), but allowed all of the other fascists to remain at the conference and intimidate attendees.

HOPEs Code of Conduct states that anyone can attend the conference regardless of race, class, gender identity or expression, age, ethnicity, religion, political beliefs, disability, sexual orientation, personal appearance, or education level, text editor choice, and other aspects. But creating space for fascists obviates the possibility of free speech. White nationalists are interested in violence, not speech, and allowing them into our community creates a chilling effect on all other participants freedom of expression. This is especially true for people who belong to marginalized groups that fascists often target for violence, such as people of color, trans and queer folk...


"'It's All Fake'- Reality TV That Masquerades As American Politics" "IndyWatch Feed World"

Masquerades As American Politics"

Big Brother does not watch us, by his choice. We watch him, by ours... When a population becomes distracted by trivia, when cultural life is redefined as a perpetual round of entertainments, when serious public conversation becomes a form of baby-talk, when, in short, a people become an audience, and their public business a vaudeville act, then a nation finds itself at risk; culture-death is a clear possibility.

New Study Reveals Dangers Inherent in Land Registration "IndyWatch Feed Pacific"

Photo: New oil palm planting and processing mill in Pomio District, ENBP

Customary land registration processes can easily be captured by local big men and companies with disastrous consequences for local people. This is the conclusion drawn in a study on recent oil palm expansion in Papua New Guinea by academic Caroline Hambloch from the University of London (pdf download available below)

Hamblochs paper, based on three months field research in East and West New Britain, is titled Land Formalisation Turned Land Rush. It was presented at a World Bank conference in Washington earlier this year.

The paper demonstrates how land registration processes, rather than protecting customary land, can easily be used to disenfranchise local communities and alienate them from their land. This is because of an environment of weak governance and huge power and information imbalances.

Hambloch details how PNGs weak or non-existent state capacity for regulation and enforcement of laws have been exploited by logging/oil palm companies who have surpassed various government agencies.

The results have been disastrous for local communities. They are experiencing worsening poverty, increasing wealth inequality, increased conflict and a lack of basic service provision such as roads, schools and health centres.

The study is very important for Papua New Guinea as it exposes and debunks the myth that land registration or formalisation is necessary to generate income, improve productivity and drive development. 

This is a theory that has long been backed by the FAO, World Bank and foreign governments and has therefore dominated the development discourse in PNG. It is a frequently repeated by government Ministers, industry bodies and think tanks although it is not supported by the evidence.

Hamblochs study reveals that rather than increasing agricultural activity and national income, customary land formalisation has had the opposite effects, deepening poverty and retarding economic growth. It has also exacerbated deeply-rooted, pre-existing power relationships at the national and local level, as local powerful big men have abused their power to exclude other customary group members from land decisions......

Fluoridated Irish Kids Experience Massive Tooth Decay Epidemic "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

Today, The Time UK is reporting that Irish children are now at epidemic levels when it comes to tooth decay. Interestingly, they are blaming cereals and juices.

The labeling of high-sugar cereals, yogurts and juices for children as healthy is contributing to an epidemic of tooth decay, a leading dental surgeon has warned.
New research has found that 60 per cent of Irish children who required dental treatment under general anesthetic before they turned five needed teeth extracted. Some children are having as many as nine teeth pulled by the time they are 12.

Further worsening the situation, the Journal of the Irish Dental Association found that 60% of the 347 required being put under anesthesia before the age of 5 to resolve tooth decay issues.

But whats not being discussed is the fact that fluoride contains hydrofluorosilicic acid, which is a corrosive acid. It can eat through pure metal. It can eat through concrete and hazmat suits. So what do we assume it could do to childrens teeth?

Children are the subjects of a load of fluoridation processes via their dentists and even their own toothpaste and drinking water. The combination is deadly. But it seems Ireland, the only country to not ban fluoridation, chooses to blame other factors; all factors that are present in all the other EU countries which do not share the dental tooth decay epidemic.

The governments obtuse position is likely one of convenience. Fluoridation is big business around the world, particularly in the United States. It is a shame that profits come before our childrens health, but it is also not surprising in the least.

A recent survey of the mass affluent that is, people age 18 to 40 with investable assets worth between $50,000 and $250,000, or with investable assets between $20,000 and $50,000 and an annual income of at least $50,000 found that 65% of Americans aged 18-22 expect to depend on inherited money to get through retirement. But not everybody expects to inherit that money from their parents. Roughly 17% of these Gen Z respondents said they expect to inherit money from a friend. By comparison, that number is 4% for all age groups.  Another 17% of Gen Zers said they expect to inherit money from their grandparents, compared with 6% overall, while 14% said they expect extended family to shell out some cash, compared with 5% overall.

Indeed, in North America alone, an estimated $30 trillion will be transferred to the younger generation via inheritances over the next 30 years. Though for some members of Gen Z, it could be a while before they see any of that money, because, as a survey from UBS recently showed, roughly 53% of people with more than $1 million in investable assets expect to live to 100, or beyond.

Midnight Meme Of The Day! "IndyWatch Feed"

by Noah

Tonight's meme is a rhetorical question, of course. Obviously, Republicans reached the point where treason became acceptable to them quite a while ago. They look at their treason on the one hand and the money to be made through the additional "tax reform" they aim to pass in September on the other, and guess which hand wins! They also long to work with Traitor Don to remove what's left of the Affordable Care Act, cut Medicare and Social Security, tell women what they are allowed to do, not just with their bodies, but with every aspect of their lives, and, of course, make voting even more difficult; all things that their master wants and will gleefully sign off on.

Republicans aim to leave the 98% in the gutter. But, those things have been their goals for the last 50 years. It's just that, now that they have the most fascist president of all and they control the $enate, the Hou$e, and, soon, the $upreme Court, they see their chance to be fully who they really are and they aren't letting go. When it comes to treason, Republicans ask "Where do I sign up?"

This is why we hear nothing about impeaching of Traitor Don. Republicans wiped their asses with the constitution long ago. Their oath to uphold and protect the constitution was given with fingers crossed and a big smirk. There are no better examples of that than Traitor Don and the two complicit traitors pictured here. You can throw in the entire White House staff and administration, too. The funny thing is, they didn't even need their embrace of Putin to do all of this against the American people. They just needed the majorities. Having Putin help install a wannabe autocrat enabler in the White House could be seen just a means to an end to them, but, now, it's more obvious than ever before that Republicans see treason as icing on the cake and the more...

Monsanto Trial: Toxicologist Explains to Jury How Monsanto Colluded With EPA "IndyWatch Feed World"

Thanks to Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. for providing a recap of the fourth and fifth day in court in the Dewayne Johnson vs. Monsanto Co. trial. Proceedings began in San Francisco Superior Court on July 9. 

The plaintiff, Dewayne Johnson, a 46-year-old former school groundskeeper who was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin lymphoma four years ago, claims Monsanto hid evidence that the active ingredient in its Roundup herbicide, glyphosate, caused his cancer. 

This is the first case to go to trial among hundreds of lawsuits alleging Roundup caused non-Hodgkin lymphoma. The trial is expected to last about a month. (Read recap).

Throughout Monday afternoon and Tuesday morning, July 16 and July 17, Monsantos attorney, Kirby Griffiths, continued his ambuscade of Plaintiffs epidemiologist / toxicologist, Dr. Christopher Portier, probing for weaknesses in Portiers assessment that glyphosate and Roundup are human carcinogens.

Chinas 25-year housing boom may be ending Property no longer expected to buoy significant demand for commodities and labour "IndyWatch Feed War"

Housing sales in China will peak this year and then begin a long-term decline, an inflection point that will drag on growth in the construction-heavy economy and hit global commodity demand, according to economists.

Structural factors point to an end to Chinas 25-year housing boom Reuters

By Gabriel Wildau in Hong Kong

Chinas economy has reduced its dependence on property in recent years, but construction remains a crucial growth pillar, employing 27m workers and fuelling demand for steel, copper and cement. Growth of housing sales has also been remarkably consistent, with only two annual declines since data began in 1992.

But the paring back of a government subsidy programme that provided about Rmb2tn ($300bn) in cash support to homebuyers since 2014 is adding to structural factors weighing on the market.

Housing sales in China totalled 1.4bn square metres in 2017, an annual increase of 5 per cent. But subsidies accounted for a quarter of housing purchases last year, estimates Bo Zhuang, China economist at TS Lombard in Beijing, implying that without this support sales would already be in decline.

The programme provided subsidies to residents displaced from dilapidated slums targeted for demolition to buy commercial housing from existing stocks, mainly in smaller cities.


Shantytown redevelopment will be the last of the magical factors boosting housing sales

Bo Zhuang, China economist at TS Lombard

Mr Bo believes the subsidies front-loaded housing purchases that would otherwise have occurred more gradually, accelerating a structural decline in demand for new housing. Shantytown redevelopment will be the last of the magical factors boosting housing sales, he said.

If the government is partly pulling out from this programme, that will hugely undermine demand in tier-3 and tier-4 cities, Mr Bo added, referring to urban areas with populations of less than 3m.

Other economists have issued similar forecasts. Ryan Li, China property analyst at JPMorgan in Hong Kong, believes that housing sales already peaked last year and expects a 2.2 per cent decline this year, after a 3 per cent rise in the first half. He forecasts another modest sales decline next year.

Neither Mr Bo nor Mr Li expect a crash in home prices or a sharp fall-off in construction activity. Sales and investment are also likely t...

The Most Important Thing One Can Do For Themselves

I cannot stress enough the importance of "this" zeolite. Yes there is stuff out there, but, it doesn't work as well. Taking Zeolite is a must these days with all the nano particles we know exist in our air, water and land through chemtrails and more. We are not machines, we are human and need a way to rid ourselves of these toxic metals.

Why detox? No matter how hard you try to minimize your exposure to chemicals and toxins, they keep showing up in our bodiesthings like mercury, lead, cadmium and plastic byproducts simply because they are everywhere in our environment, and the damage they do isnt pretty.

Fortunately, nature provides protection against many of the toxic elements we encounter every day. The Zeolite Clinoptilolite, a negatively-charged mineral works like a magnet, attracting positively-charged toxins, safely and gently carrying them out of the body within hours.

Extensively studied (

Granted GRAS status by the FDA (Generally Recognized as Safe).

Helps to balance the bodys pH, considered essential for good health.

Acts like a magnet to attract and trap heavy metals and positively-charged toxins in and onto its crystalline structure.

While there are many zeolite products on the market today, one in particular meets the rigorous standards medical professionals seek, Pure Body.

BBC News website reports fatal gunshot, fails to identify perpetrator "IndyWatch Feed War"

Late on the evening of July 20th the BBC News website published a report headlined Israel carries out Gaza strikes as soldier dies from gunshot on its main homepage and its World and Middle East pages.

Israel has attacked military targets in the Gaza Strip, after its soldiers came under gunfire at the border.

FBI Warrant Application Called Ex-Adviser to Trump an Agent for Russia "IndyWatch Feed World"

Truthdig editors note: The redacted documents obtained by the media Saturday can be viewed by clicking here. One of the documents, a 2016 warrant application to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, says Carter Page is an agent of a foreign power and that [t]he FBI believes Page has been the subject of targeted recruitment by the Russian government.

WASHINGTON The Trump administration on Saturday released a set of documents once deemed top secret relating to the wiretapping of a onetime adviser to Donald Trumps presidential campaign.

The New York Times reported that the documents involving former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page were released to the Times and several other media organizations that had filed Freedom of Information Act lawsuits to obtain them. The FBI later posted the documents to its FOIA website online.

The materials include an October 2016 application to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court to wiretap Page as well as several renewal applications, the Times reported. It is highly unusual for documents related to FISA wiretap applications to be released.

While the documents were heavily redacted in places, the Times reported that visible portions of the documents show the FBI telling the intelligence court that Page has been collaborating and conspiring with the Russian government. The agency also told the court that the FBI believes Page has been the subject of targeted recruitment by the Russian government.

Page has denied being a Russian agent.

After a redaction, the Times reported that the application to wiretap Page included a partial sentence: undermine and influence the outcome of the 2016 U.S. presidential election in violation of U.S. criminal law.

The surveillance of Page became a contentious matter between Republican and Democratic lawmakers earlier this year. Republicans alleged the FBI had abused its surveillance powers and improperly obtained the warrant, a charge that Democrats rebutted as both sides characterized the documents in different ways. The documents, meanwhile, remained out of public view.

House Democrats were quick to say that the documents bolstered their arguments.

For more than a year, House Republicans have bullied the Department of Justice and FBI to release highly sensitive documents to derail the Special Counsels and other legitimate national security investigations and cover for the President, House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi said in a statement. For the sake of our national security and our democracy, these vital investigations must be allowed to continue unhindered by Republican interference. The GOP must cease their attacks on our law enforcement and intelligence c...

BAGHDADTemperatures across southern Iraq are so high in the summer months that birds drop dead from the sky due to heat exhaustion. And tap water runs piping hot.

So when Iraqs power supply faltered this month as a heat wave ramped up air-conditioning demand, it ignited an angry question: Why cant one of the worlds top oil producers keep the power on?

Protests have rippled through Iraqs oil-rich south for over a week as demonstrators railed against the governments failure to provide basic services like electricity, health care and clean water. They have posed a serious enough risk that authorities have shut down the internet and sent in troops to quell the unrest.

Open Your Eyes "IndyWatch Feed"

Look. Here's two articles that explain that the president was forced to pretend not to be nakedly doing Russia's bidding and that he was mystified by all the fuss. The man is impossibly stupid, but he's not that stupid. He's the one who blew off his own staff and insisted on a summit with Putin. He's the one who insisted on a private one-on-one meeting with Putin. He's the one who, in the midst of the hottest part of the backlash, ordered John Bolton to invite Putin to visit the United States.

He's doing what he feels he must and just handling the fallout as best he can.


Republicans Are Ashamed of Their President "IndyWatch Feed"

This is all perfectly normal:

Senate Republicans are attempting to dissuade President Trump from holding another summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin anytime soon.

Many GOP senators regard Trumps meeting with the Russian leader in Helsinki earlier this week as a political disaster. Congressional Republicans have since come under intense pressure to renounce the presidents embrace of Putin on the world stage, particularly his apparent acceptance of Putins denial that Russia interfered in the 2016 presidential election.

When asked about the possibility of a second summit, Senate Republican Whip John Cornyn (Texas) hung his head and quipped, maybe in a year or two.

The body language of other GOP senators was equally telling.

I dont have anything to say about that today, said Sen. Roy Blunt (Mo.), another member of the GOP leadership, lowering his eyes and shaking his head.

The Democrats werent even this embarrassed when they learned that Bill Clinton had, in fact, had sexual relations with that woman, Monica Lewinsky. That was immeasurably more defensible behavior than what weve been seeing from Donald Trump.

I idea that any Republican up for reelection this November deserves another term in office while this problem remains unaddressed is ludicrous.


Is Donald Trump a Russia Agent? "IndyWatch Feed"

The main problem I have in understanding Trumps relationship with Russia is his complete failure to conceal it. For this same reason, experienced former CIA counterintelligence officer Jack DeVine concluded after watching the Helsinki press conference that there is no way that the president is an agent of the Russian government. Heres what he told Adam Davidson of The New Yorker:

The proof, he told me, was right in front of us. If Trump were truly serving as a Russian intelligence asset, there would have been an obvious move for him to make during his joint press conference with Putin. He would have publicly lambasted the Russian leader, unleashing as theatrical a denunciation as possible. He would have told Putin that he may have been able to get away with a lot of nonsense under Barack Obama, but all that would end now: America has a strong President and there will be no more meddling. Instead, Trump gave up his single best chance to permanently put to rest any suspicion that he is working to promote Russian interests.

Instead of being a direct agent, he is probably just afraid of what the Russians have on him and is mostly concerned not to provoke anyone who might be able to expose him. According to Davidson, it's more likely to be financial crimes than anything of a sexual nature. As proof, Trump has weathered plenty of damaging revelations and accusations about his sexual behavior without much of a problem, so why would he be paralyzed by the threat of a pee tape?

The facts do support this assessment up to a point. Theres plenty of reason to believe that Trump grew dependent of Russian financing when most banks wouldnt lend to him, and his own sons have essentially said as much. And, as I spelled out in What Trump Did to Win a Tower in Moscow, he was in direct negotiations with Russians to build Europes tallest building throughout the fall of 2015 and spring of 2016. Other deals he pursued in former Soviet Socialist Republics have potentially compromised him in financial crimes. Dirty Russian money has certainly flowed like a mighty river into many of his condo developments. Trump may not actually know what his precise liabilities are but at the same time be quite certain that he doesnt want to find out.

The reason this theory is ultimately unsatisfactory to me is that Trump does not seem to have the base of knowledge or the capacity for memory retention to understand what Russia would want without it being explained to him in some detail and with periodic reiteratio...

Documents keep 'coming out of the woodwork!' "IndyWatch Feed National"


From time to time, documentation turns up "out of the blue," which assists us with aspects of the subject. Although we may have known or suspected the existence of such documents, when they turn up in this manner, it is very much unexpected.  Three recent examples come to mind.

Project Blue Book documentation

In late 2013, UFO researcher Rob Mercer, who lives in Springfield, Ohio, came across an advert offering Project Blue Book documents. It turned out that a former USAF officer, assigned to Project Blue Book, named Lt Carmon Marano, had kept some material. Mercer eventually located Marano and then spoke to him. Ultimately, Mercer was able to obtain boxes of files; photographs; films and documents. Some of this was the original material, some copies. Mercer has now made scans of this material available.


In July 2018, an announcement was made that the family of the late Major Jesse Marcel, of Roswell fame, had gathered together "...historical documents, military records, photos and a personal journal" of the former Intelligence Officer. This material is now being processed before being publicly revealed. Whether or not it will provide some corroboration of details already know is yet to be determined. However, without the family's efforts this new material would not have become available for UFO researchers.

UK government files

Over several years, the UK government has released thousands of pages of documents relating to the British government's investigation into UFOs in that country. However, though the efforts of US researcher, and Rendlesham Forest 1980 incident witness, John Burroughs, more was revealed.

In 2015, the Openminds website stated:

"Burroughs has submitted several Freedom of Information Act Requests in the UK and US. He has already been able to get the UK government to admit that they have more UFO files to release, even though they had previously claimed to have released all of the UFO files."

This ultimately led to the release of 15 such files in 2017. These 2017 files contained for example, information on the UFO interests of the Italian Department of Defence; a...


Philippines: Moodys says relatively weak rule of law and the possible shift to federalism could drag down the Phil economy "IndyWatch Feed War"

Moodys Investors Service says the countrys relatively weak rule of law and the possible shift to federalism could drag down the economy

No automatic alt text available.

MANILA, Philippines Moodys Investors Service kept its investment-grade rating for the Philippines, but warned against threats to the economy due to political developments and a possible shift to federalism.

Moodys maintained a stable outlook on its Baa2 rating on Philippine debt and expected the economy to improve. The countrys robust economy also countered struggles on raising the per capita income and issues on its revenue-raising capacity. (READ: The Philippine economys health under Duterte)

Moodys expects that growth will remain robust and that the Philippines fiscal metrics will strengthen somewhat as the government continues to make progress on its socioeconomic reform agenda, but these trends are likely to fall short of bringing the Philippines credit profile in line with higher-rated countries, Moodys said.

However, the rating agency warned changes in governance frameworks could hit public finances and may affect the Philippines credit rating.

A higher rating means a lower the cost of borrowing in foreign currencies. A better rating also attracts investors.

For instance, Moodys cited the recent Supreme Court ruling that redefines the internal revenue allotment (IRA) for local governments, as well as the...

Coats Says He Meant No Disrespect to Trump With Putin Response "IndyWatch Feed War"

The top U.S. intelligence official said Saturday he meant no disrespect to President Donald Trump in a televised interview discussing the summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats said his Thursday comments at the Aspen Security Forum in Colorado were not intended to be critical of the presidents decision to invite Putin to a meeting in Washington later this year.

July 21, 2018, 6:01 PM EDT Updated on July 21, 2018, 11:34 PM EDT
Dan Coats.  Photographer: Zach Gibson/Bloomberg

Some press coverage has mischaracterized my intentions in responding to breaking news presented to me during a live interview, Coats said. My admittedly awkward response was in no way meant to be disrespectful or criticize the actions of the president.

Coats has been under scrutiny since he said he wished Trump had not met one-on-one with the Russian leader and expressed dismay that the president had publicly undermined U.S. intelligence agencies.

Coats issued a rare statement rebutting the presidents Monday comments during a press conference with Putin doubting the findings of the intelligence community on Russian election interference. White House aides were fearful that the former lawmaker might resign over the presidents comments, and the president spoke positively of Coats in a television interview Wednesday. But Coats display of surprise upon learning that Trump had invited Putin to Washington this fall for a follow-on meeting drew the presidents ire.

Say that again, Coats said, cupping his hand over his ear on live television. He took a deep breath and continued: OK. Thats going to be special.

Coats also revealed in the interview with NBCs Andrea Mitchell that he was unaware of what transpired in the private meeting between Trump and Putin in Helsinki, and restated without...

Police stand by & watch as Ukrainian radical ties up & publicly humiliates 'Russia-lover' "IndyWatch Feed World"

In a shocking scene filmed in Ukraine, police officers would not intervene as a group of radicals staged a pillorying of a man, whom they branded a pedophile and a supporter of the 'Russian world'. The impromptu medieval public punishment happened in Chernigov, a city in northern Ukraine with a population of less than 300,000. The victim was apparently the man, who was detained a few days ago by the local police for throwing a bottle at a monument to the Heavenly Hundred, the victims of the 2014 Maidan violence. Police at the time identified the man as a convicted sex offender of minors, who had been released from prison a month earlier after serving a lengthy sentence. The controversial video was livestreamed on Facebook by Oleksandr Tarnavskyi, who according to his page has ties to the notorious Azov Battalion, a unit in the Ukrainian Interior Ministry with strong ties to right-wing radicals and neo-Nazis. The half-hour clip shows a couple of young men sitting a few meters from a road sign pole. Tied to the pole is a man, who seems to be in his 60s, with a note taped to his chest. The note says: "I am a vatnik [derogatory term for a Russian used in Ukraine]. I was raped in jail. I damaged the monument to the Heavenly Hundred. Spit at me."

The idea sprang from research that found people are typically engaged at work for fewer than three hours a day, said Perpetual Guardian founder Andrew Barnes. He said he started to think about the pressures that employees are under -- sick kids or waiting for the plumber -- and how those stresses affect productivity and cut back on hours spent in the office.

For some of us, less stress results in better sleep, resulting in fewer mistakes and more productivity.

Five Shocking Truths About Syrian Education "IndyWatch Feed War"

These five shocking truths regarding Syrian education all come from the latest report by Impact-SE, which is a research, policy and advocacy organization that monitors and analyzes education.

  1. There are indications of ever-closer bonds to Russia, including study of the Russian language which has recently become a compulsory language choice and appreciation of all things Russian, possibly indicating a continued alliance after the civil war ends. Russia emerges from the curriculum as a close ideological and cultural friend and ally.
  2. Syrian national identity is based on the principles of struggle to realize a single Arab nation that includes all Arab states, constituting one country, the Arab Homeland. This pan-Arab ideology places secular nationalism and devotion to a radical struggle at the forefront.
  3. There is no room for Israeldubbed the Racist/Terrorist/Zionist Entity. Anti-Semitic motifs such as stereotypical references to the character of Shylock from Shakespeares Merchant of Venice are to be found. The Holocaust is ignored. Textbooks teach that Israel is a terrorist state and therefore all means are legitimate in the war against it, including terror and suicide attacks. Still, the option of land for peace within the framework of a comprehensive agreement is preserved, but hidden.
  4. The long civil war has not softened the portrayal in the curriculum of Syrias radical national identity. Much that relates to the war is ignored. The ethos is of a natural disaster that demands mobilization and individual contribution.
  5. While the curriculum encourages free-thinking, is secular in outlook and has separate book...

Watch Out for the ISIS Ideology "IndyWatch Feed War"

ISIS is said to be in decline. Indeed in many parts of Syria and Iraq the movement has largely been wiped out. However, there are reports of an Islamic State resurgence in certain areas of Iraq particularly around Diyala, Kirkuk and Sallahudin.

Eventually ISIS will be defeated in this region. But already its fighters have spread elsewhere; to Libya, the Philippines and well beyond, including Europe and with individuals ready to die for the cause in America.

But even if ISIS disappears, we still have to deal with the ideology. It could take generations for the evil to be fully uprooted as it takes hold around the world via social media.

Its up to each of us to make sure that ideology doesnt affect our own children or those of people we love.

Together we must defeat the ideology.

Estonia Spy Chief: Network of Operatives Pushing Russian Agenda in West "IndyWatch Feed"

From VOA:
Estonia Spy Chief: Network of Operatives Pushing Russian Agenda in West July 21, 2018 5:49 AM, by Jeff Seldin

WASHINGTON For the past several months, intelligence and security officials in the U.S. government and private sector have cautiously marveled at the seemingly slow pace of Russian cyberattacks and influence operations using social media.

Unlike in the run-up to the 2016 U.S. presidential elections, officials say so far there has been no frenzy of hacks, phishing attacks or use of ads and false news stories to penetrate voting systems, alter voter rolls or influence voters ahead of the upcoming midterm elections.

Some have suggested the slowdown is the result of better preparation and better cyber tools that have allowed social media companies to thwart Russian efforts. But among Western intelligence agencies, there is also concern that Russia may not be relying on bots and trolls because they have real people who can do the work instead.

We [Estonian intelligence] have detected a network of politicians, journalists, diplomats, business people who are actually Russian influence agents and who are doing what they are told to do, Mikk Marran, the director general of Estonias Foreign Intelligence Service said Friday, speaking of Moscows efforts in the West.

We see clearly that those people are pushing Russias agenda, Marran told an audience at the annual Aspen Security Forum in Aspen, Colorado.

Marrans comments come during a week that saw U.S. President Donald Trump casting doubt on the U.S. intelligence communitys assessment that Russia meddled in the 2016 presidential election, while standing alongside his Russian counterpart, President Vladimir Putin, following their meeting in Helsinki.

Since returning from Europe, Trump has backtracked on his initial statement, reading a prepared statement during Tuesdays Cabinet meeting and in an interview Wednesday with CBS News.

Still, senior U.S. intelligence and security officials remain concerned, publicly asserting Russia did indeed meddle with the 2016 election.

A U.S. special counsel, Robert Mueller, appointed to investigate Russian involvement in the 2016 election and possible collusion by members of the Trump campaign, on July 13 indicted 12 Russian intelligence officials for hacking the computer networks belonging to the Democratic party, and has previously secured indictments against Trump campaign staffers, including campaign chairman Paul Manafort and former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn.

Yet despite the publicity from the U.S. investigation and greater awareness acros...

Philippines: Lawmakers Want To Scrap Elections To make new Federalism Constitution "IndyWatch Feed War"

Cha-cha impossible without no-el House leader

Jess Diaz (The Philippine Star) July 22, 2018 12:00am

MANILA, Philippines President Dutertes allies in the House of Representatives would not be able to fulfill his wish to have a federal constitution within a nine-month timeline if next years elections are not scrapped, House Majority Leader Rodolfo Farias indicated yesterday.

Precisely, the Speaker stated that for the HOR (House of Representatives) of the 17th Congress to come up with a proposed constitution, it could only do so without the distraction of the elections in less than 10 months from now, he said in response to questions from The STAR.

He said it would be impossible for congressmen to write a new charter if the elections are held in May as scheduled under the present Constitution.

According to presidential spokesman Harry Roque, the President wants the envisioned federal charter to be finished in time for the May 2019 polls so that the plebiscite for its ratification could be held together with the balloting.

That gives Congress only nine months between August this year and April next year to complete its Charter change (Cha-cha) work, a timeframe Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez and Farias consider very tight.

The Prince of Wales sent a disgraced former bishop 'small gifts and money' - but didn't know he was a paedophile, the heir to the throne has told an inquiry.

The heir to the throne remained friends with Peter Ball, now 86, because he did not understand that the clergymans caution relating to gross indecency was an admission of guilt, it was reported today.

Recycle LCDs into LEDs "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

We always find it funny when we see ads for modern LED TVs. These TVs dont use LEDs to show the picture. They are nothing more than LCD screens with LED backlighting instead of cold cathode fluorescent lamps. [Akshaylals] had a few LCD laptop and phone panels that were defunct and decided to recycle them to get to the LEDs within.

Most panels are lit from one or two edges with a bar of LEDs. You only have to peel off some tape and plastic. If you wonder what all those plastic sheets do, see the [Engineer Guys] video, below.

[Akshaylals] was afraid that trying to desolder the surface mount LEDs would damage them so instead he simply cut the strips into smaller pieces. To demonstrate the usefulness of the LEDs, he made some large 7-segment LED displays, using two of the free LEDs on each side of each segment.

Some super glue and hot glue along with some small wires put everything together. Youd just want to be careful about the polarity of the LEDs which you can check with an ohmmeter.  Probably a good idea to make sure they are working before you glue them down, too.

For a test, theres an LED driver board that lets an Arduino drive the whole affair with 8 pins. The plan is to eventually use the bright white display in an alarm clock project.

You dont see many non-LED backlit LCDs anymore, but it is possible to convert. Keep in mind that OLED panels are totally different, so tearing those up isnt likely to produce an LED strip.


Jihadism Spreads like Wildfire Across Africa "IndyWatch Feed Asia"


In recent years, the discussion about the rapid spread of Islamic radicalism across Africa has been consistently making front pages of most of the local and international media sources.

Among the most active and most radical terrorist organizations operating in Africa one can single out Boko Haram that has been enjoying close ties with ISIS that has been outlawed by authorities of a handful states, including Russia. Boko Haram has been operating in the Lake Chad region and a number of gray zones that exist along Chad, Nigers and Nigerias borders. However, northern regions of Nigeria remain a veritable hotbed of radicalism, since local terrain allows small well-organized groups of terrorists to both lose a pursuing force or launch a surprise attack against local settlements.

However, in spite of the rigid opposition to the activities of Boko Haram mounted by local governments, with up to 7 thousand members of the terrorist group arrested in Nigeria, 800 in Cameroon, and up to 1400 in Niger and Chad combined, this threat to the regional stability doesnt seem to go anywhere. In the period from December 2017 to February 2018, according to the UN, the group committed 93 terrorist attacks, which constitutes a 50% increase in Cameroon alone.

Last February, Boko Haram would kidnap more than 100 students from the Dapchi Science and Technical College in Nigeria, following this crime with a massive assault was launched against a UN humanitarian mission stationed in a refugee camp within Cameroons borders in March. Further still, the group assassinated three local employees of UNICEF, while kidnapping yet another person. Acts of terrorism committed by Boko Haram is a daily occurrence in the region, since those radicals are not only persecuting Christians, but actively fueling the tensions between local Sunnis and Shiites by attacking the former.

One of the most recent criminal acts of this terrorist group was a coordinated assault in the immediate vicinity of Nigerias capital last July. This assault resulted in 96 people killed and some 20 injured. Additionally, a total of 70 administrative and residential buildings was burnt to the ground. Thus, Boko Haram has put its combat capabilities on display so the officials of this African country have a taste of what theyre dealing with.

At the same time, one cant argue that such ma...

German army mulls recruiting foreign EU nationals to boost recruitment "IndyWatch Feed War"

While both governing parties supported the idea, the SPD said that citizenship must be given to new soldiers to avoid the risk of it becoming a mercenary army.

German soldiers

Germanys long-understaffed army has a new plan to boost recruitment: allowing foreigners from other European Union countries to serve in the unified armed forces (Bundeswehr). The defense ministry confirmed on Saturday that it was seriously considering the idea.

The Bundeswehr is growing. For this, we need qualified personnel, a Defense Ministry spokesman told German news agency DPA.

SPD: No mercenary army

Speaking with local newspaper Augsburger Allegemeine, Social Democrat (SPD) defense expert Karl-Heinz Brunner said that he could imagine EU citizens serving in the Bundeswehr. But he warned that any soldier who fought for Germany must be promised citizenship.

If citizens of other countries are accepted, without the promise of getting a German passport, the Bundeswehr risks becoming a mercenary army.

False accounts intended to abuse relations between Saudi Arabia and Bahrain, Bahrain says "IndyWatch Feed War"

Bahrains Ministry of Interior announced that it has detected false accounts intended to affect the special relations between Saudi Arabia and Bahrain.

The ministry said evidence suggests the ghost accounts, which are publishing false information, appear to be managed by the State of Qatar as well as fugitives and wanted criminals.

The statement said that this signifies a systematic targeting of the Kingdom of Bahrain, in order to harm its public interests and try to influence public opinion and the economy through the dissemination of false information.

The ministry added that these accounts are working to stir confusion and sedition and incite hatred, in order to target the internal social fabric and influence the course of the upcoming parliamentary elections.

The statement said these accounts focus on spreading negative information on several matters, including the most recent issue regarding the changes to Bahrains pension system to stir public opinion, distort the Bahraini identity and portray the Gulf nation in a negative light.

The ministry noted that these threats are generally intended to harm Bahraini citizens.

In light of the recent developments and the security and safety concern of the society, and within the framework of its responsibilities in maintaining security and public order, the ministry has conducted an investigation into the matter.

Through the General Directorate for Combating Corruption and Economic and Electronic Security, the ministry is monitoring the alleged accounts on social networking sites that have been broadcasting illegal content.

The statement said that the necessary legal measures have been taken in this regard, affirming the freedoms and rights guaranteed by the Constitution, especially freedom of expression.

The ministry has called for adherence in controlling these rights, stipulated by the laws within the limitations of freedom of opinion and expression.

The ministry also called on the public to be vigilant when publishing information and ensuring that it is credible and from official sources.

In addition it urged the public not to use social media for the dissemina...

Hardline Islamists push religion to center of Pakistan election Mainstreaming armed Islamists and other extremists into politics "IndyWatch Feed War"

None of that has stopped Saeed from hitting the campaign trail for Pakistans July 25 general election, denouncing the outgoing government as traitors and whipping up support for the more than 200 candidates he backs.

The politics of the American servants is coming to an end! Saeed thundered at a rally this month in the eastern city of Lahore, where supporters showered him with rose petals.

The main race in Wednesdays vote is between the party of now-jailed former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, which is seeking a second consecutive term despite its leaders downfall on corruption charges, and the party of former cricket star Imran Khan, perceived as the favorite of the powerful military.

But a bumper crop of ultra-Islamist groups are also contesting the poll, with the potential to reshape the political landscape of the nuclear-armed Muslim country of 208 million people with anti-Western rhetoric and calls for ever-stricter interpretation of sharia, or Islamic law.

The proliferation of religious parties appears to be a fulfilment of a proposal made by Pakistans military to mainstream armed Islamists and other extremi...


Educating animals (not just signaling) "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

Formal training programs, which can be called education, enhance cognition in human and nonhuman animals alike. However, even informal exposure to human contact in human environments can enhance cognition. We review selected literature to compare animals behavior with objects among keas and great apes, the taxa that best allow systematic comparison of the behavior of wild animals with that of those in human environments such as homes, zoos, and rehabilitation centers. In all cases, we find that animals in human environments do much more with objects. Following and expanding on the explanations of several previous authors, we propose that living in human environments and the opportunities to observe and manipulate human-made objects help to develop motor skills, embodied cognition, and the use of objects to extend cognition in the animals. Living in a human world also furnishes the animals with more time for such activities, in that the time needed for foraging for food is reduced, and furnishes opportunities for social learning, including emulation, an attempt to achieve the goals of a model, and program-level imitation, in which the imitator reproduces the organizational structure of goal-directed actions without necessarily copying all the details. All these factors let these animals learn about the affordances of many objects and make them better able to come up with solutions to physical problems.

The paper is by Ken Cheng and Richard W. Byrne, via the excellent Kevin Lewis.

Ecuador Will Imminently Withdraw Asylum for Julian Assange and Hand Him Over to the UK "IndyWatch Feed World"

Ecuador Will Imminently Withdraw Asylum for Julian Assange and Hand Him Over to the UK | 21 July 2018 | Ecuador's President Lenin Moreno traveled to London on Friday for the ostensible purpose of speaking at the 2018 Global Disabilities Summit... The concealed, actual purpose of the president's trip is to meet with British officials to finalize an agreement under which Ecuador will withdraw its asylum protection of Julian Assange, in place since 2012, eject him from the Ecuadorian Embassy in London, and then hand over the WikiLeaks founder to British authorities. A source close to the Ecuadorian Foreign Ministry and the president's office, unauthorized to speak publicly, has confirmed to the Intercept that Moreno is close to finalizing, if he has not already finalized, an agreement to hand over Assange to the UK within the next several weeks. The withdrawal of asylum and physical ejection of Assange could come as early as this week. Even under the best-case scenario, it appears highly likely that Assange will continue to be imprisoned by British authorities.

For Americas Allies, Donald Trumps Behavior is Hard to Watch "IndyWatch Feed War"

He represents the opposite of liberal internationalism.

The past two weeks have been tough for Atlanticists in Europe who still think we shouldnt give up on the United States. President Trump almost wrecked a NATO summit, he offended his hosts in Britain, and he called the European Union a foe of the United States, all the while cozying up to Vladimir Putin, a good competitor.

For months, Europeans concerned about the presidents statements have been reassured by American friends: Ignore the tweets, focus on what the administration does, and trust our checks and balances. That made some sense. Senior cabinet members like the secretary of defense have remained committed to the liberal international order and to Americas alliances and partnerships. Congress has strongly supported NATO. And American troops still guarantee Europes security.

But in international relations, its not only deeds that matter; words also do, especially the American presidents.

Lets face it: Mr. Trumps core beliefs conflict with the foundations of Western grand strategy since the mid-1940s. He believes America is getting a bad deal from its European allies. He expresses admiration for autocrats like Kim Jong-un and Mr. Putin, while reserving his most acidic comments for democratic partners like Germanys Angela Merkel and Canadas Justin Trudeau. He represents the opposite of liberal internationalism.

Illinois Gov. Bruce Rauner (R) signed legislation empowering police to confiscate firearms from citizens and extending the wait period for gun purchases to 72 hours.

The new waiting period means a single woman being pursued by a stalker now has to hide and/or live behind locked doors for three days while she waits to get a gun for self-defense.

NBC 26 reports that the confiscatory law is called the Firearms Restraining Order Act.

By signing it, Rauner made Illinois the 13th state to empower police to confiscate guns and he joined a growing list of Republican governors who signed such laws into place following the February 14, 2018, Parkland high school shooting. (source)

The Full Moon To Come Is Going To Push All Zodiac Signs Into Emotional Overdrive "IndyWatch Feed World"

We all know July is and has been a very active month in the celestial world. This month will soon be coming to an end and a full blood moon is on the way.

This full moon is set to occur on the night of July 27th and as you most likely know, it will be a full blood moon with a total lunar eclipse. The energies being shoved our way during this time are not going to be easy to face. They will be stirring up well everything and having us all feeling quite emotional at best.

This will be much stronger than any normal full moon, and it will be affecting all of us for at least a couple weeks. You might become overly aggressive or you might end up going through some kind of insane crisis. Regardless, you will be pushed over the edge. You see, this full moon is going to really increase the tension within our lives.

While we will not be able to see the total lunar eclipse here in the US, we will still feel its energies. Your emotions will be beating against the inside of your body as if you are ready to overflow. You will be dealing with a lot of miscommunication and stress during this time, so I would really hold off on important conversations. Nothing that you have been hiding will remain hidden, everything will feel as if it is ten times worse than it actually is.

For all the signs poor decision making and struggle can be expected, at least for a few days. Do not let your frustrations get the best of you, and if you must make a decision try to think things through properly and dont rush into anything. Because of Saturn, being patient will not be as hard as it might normally be but since Mars is retrograding that tension I mentioned earlier will be much more intense.

As you may know, this total lunar eclipse will be the longest one of the century thus far. It will really bring change within your personal life, and it might not allow you to let go of any kind of emotional baggage you have been trying to move on from. While you will feel out of balance for a while, as time goes on things will begin to even out.

U.S. launches campaign to erode support for Irans leaders Americans are not patsies "IndyWatch Feed War"

The Trump administration has launched an offensive of speeches and online communications meant to foment unrest and help pressure Iran to end its nuclear program and its support of militant groups, U.S. officials familiar with the matter said.

More than half a dozen current and former officials said the campaign, supported by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and national security adviser John Bolton, is meant to work in concert with U.S. President Donald Trumps push to economically throttle Iran by re-imposing tough sanctions. The drive has intensified since Trump withdrew on May 8 from a 2015 seven-nation deal to stop Iran from developing nuclear weapons.

The current and former officials said the campaign paints Iranian leaders in a harsh light, at times using information that is exaggerated or contradicts other official pronouncements, including comments by previous administrations.

The White House declined comment on the campaign. The State Department also declined to comment on the campaign specifically, including on Pompeos role.

A senior Iranian official dismissed the campaign, saying the United States had sought in vain to undermine the government since the 1979 Islamic Revolution. He spoke on condition of anonymity.

Their efforts will fail again, the official said.

Brilliant Colors Used to Depict Brilliant History Along Grand River "IndyWatch Feed 1stpeople"

Native artist at work: Alan Compo (Grand River Band of Ottawa) painting Anishaabe Kwe mural in downtown Grand Rapids. Native News Online photos by Levi Rickert

MicPublished July 22, 2018

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich.  Alan Compo, as did his Ottawa ancestors before him, takes time to fish in the Grand River that flows over rocks through downtown Grand Rapids, Michigan. Compo catches bass to take home with him after a days work painting a permanent mural on the walls of a walkway tunnel that connects the Grand Rapids Public Museum on the south of Pearl Street to the Gerald R. Ford Presidential Muesum on the north.

The location of the mural is significant to Compo because it is on the westside of the Grand River in a prominent public space. As a Native painter, Compo is pleased that he was selected to paint a mural that will allow this generation and future generations of non-Natives to view a slice of Ottawa history from his Native perspective.

I grew up on the westside of Grand Rapids. So, I am happy I get to paint on the westside of the river, comments Compo, who spent all day Saturday painting.

Michigan Indians have a long history along the Grand River that goes back thousands of years. The Indian name for the Grand River is O-wash-ta-nong, which means far-away because of the length of the waterway. The 252-mile Grand River originates near Jackson, Michigan and makes its way through Lansing into Grand Rapids and empties to Lake Michigan at Grand Haven, Michigan. Some 14 Ottawa villages lined the Grand River from just east of Grand Rapids to Grand Haven.

Compo, 41, a tribal citizen of the Grand River Band of Ottawa Indians, is a self-taught American Indian artist, who has been working on the Anishinaabe Kwe (Original or Indigenous Women) mural since July 10, 2018. Eleven days in, his work proves he is a fast painter who paints with brilliant colors to depict a brilliant history of the Anishinaabe who traversed the Grand River for hundreds of years prior to European contact.



Faced with Lawsuit, Housing Developer Denies Desecrating American Indian Human Remains "IndyWatch Feed 1stpeople"

Published July 22, 2018

CONCORD, Calif.  A California company, Seecon Financial & Construction, says it will vigorously defend itself after a Yolo District Attorneys Office filed a lawsuit against it that alleges the company, along with two other companies, disturbed the human remains of American Indians buried at a housing development in West Sacratmento, California.

The lawsuit was filed on July 12 with claims Seecon Financial & Constructio, which owns the Newport Estates housing development, was negligent in its handling of human remains that were distrupted in October 2015 after knowing that the site contained

None of the remains were removed from the site and nothing was desecrated, Seecon Financial & Construction writes in its defense in a press release emailed to Native News Online on Friday.

In further defense, Seecon Financial & Construction, the press release continues:

Upon discovery of the skeletal remains, the company retained one of Californias top archaeologists, and, for almost three years now, has worked closely with the Yocha Dehe (Nation), identified as the most likely descendant, Parsons states. All discovered remains have been respectfully removed under the supervision of the Yocha Dehe and the archaeological firm, and those remains are being analyzed, at significant cost to the company, by a team of archaeologists prior to their respectful re-internment as requested by the Yocha Dehe. Despite no obligation to do so, the company is paying for tribal monitors and a team of archaeologists to monitor all ongoing earth moving activities, and also is funding a comprehensive analysis of the remains.

Has 95 become the New 65 for Retirement? "IndyWatch Feed World"

One of the more interesting downsides of the collapse in socialism is the impact upon the elderly. The data now shows that since the 2007-2009 recession, about twice as many elderly are still working. When interest rates decline, income from savings collapsed. So while the theory was to lower interest rates to stimulate the economy, the central banks have discovered a dark hidden secret demand-side economics has utterly failed. Saving for retirement has failed. Your house has failed to provide a savings account and states are broke so they keep raising property taxes. Government pensions keep demanding higher taxes to exploit the public so government unions survive. In many states, the promises handed to union workers are bankrupting everything as one of the main benefits was free healthcare for life for the members and their spouses.

Today, a record number of folks aged 85 and older are still working. Most are just trying to supplement losses from tax increases and decreased interest income. States make no accommodation for people when they retire. The property taxes keep rising and that is forcing many to sell their homes even in down markets to try to make ends meet. The youth are finding that their degrees are worthless. More than 60% cannot find employment in what they have worked to get a degree in these days. Even those with a law degree are often waiting on tables. When I was looking for office space in Florida, nearly 100% of the vacant spaces were former law firms. So 85 may be the new 65, but it appears that might be 95. Justice Kennedy is 81 so even he did not retire at 65. As the Washington Post reported, some 255,000 Americans who are 85 years old or older were working over the past 12 months.

Navajo Prez Candidates Take 2nd Swing "IndyWatch Feed 1stpeople"

Navajo Times | Ravonelle Yazzie
Panelist Josephine Tracy asks a question during the second presidential candidate forum Monday in Kayenta, Arizona.

Published July 22, 2018

LGBTQ issues come out of the closet at forum

KAYENTA, Ariz.  If you think things havent changed much on the Navajo Nation in the last 10 or 15 years, you havent been following the Navajo Nation presidential campaigns.

Thirteen years after the 20th Navajo Nation Council passed the Din Marriage Act, which banned same-sex marriage right under the prohibition against incest, one candidate at Monday nights presidential candidate forum here charged out of the gate in support of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer rights and later challenged his opponents to reveal their stance on same-sex marriage by standing up if they supported it.

Eight candidates more than half of the 15 who were present at the time stood up after Nick X. Taylor gave them the ultimatum. For the record, they were Norman Patrick Brown, Alton Joe Shepherd, Trudie Jackson, Vincent Yazzie, Hope MacDonald-Lonetree, Dineh Benally, Calvin Lee Jr. and Tom Tso. Incumbent Russell Begaye had not yet arrived, having given his state of the nation address to the Navajo Nation Council in Window Rock.

Candidate and former vice president Rex Lee Jim missed the forum, as did Kevin Cody for the second time, but the rather sparse crowd was introduced to candidate Benny Bahe, who also missed the first forum. Bahes platform seemed a bit undeveloped, as he declined to answer questions posed by the six-member panel on economic development and unemployment, saying, I really dont have the answer to that.

Asked in a Facebook message why he has missed both forums, Kevin Cody responded that he is still in the listening phase of his campaign, going around the chapter houses and talking with the grassroots people. I can answer questions at a forum, he said, but really I believe my purpose is finding the people that need help so I can share the stories at one of the upcoming forums on how our Navajo Nation government needs to be repaired.

Begaye did show up for the last segment of questions and a closing statement.

PHOENIX The summer after graduating from Stonewall High School, 19-year-old Chickasaw citizen Cayman Watkins found himself competing in an international basketball tournament in Arizona alongside his Oklahoma Tushka teammates.

Watkins was well-prepared for the challenge.

He was a four-year starter on both the varsity basketball and baseball teams for Stonewall. He was named to both the Native American All-State basketball and baseball teams. He holds the all-time scoring record for Stonewall High School and was named All-Conference for four years.

Chickasaw, Choctaw, Seminole, Muscogee (Creek), Cherokee, Apache, Ho Chunk, Kiowa and Ohkay Owingeh athletes comprised Watkins team of Native American ballers going head-to-head with other Native teams from across the globe during the 16th Annual Native American Basketball Invitational (NABI), July 8-14.

Teams hailed from Alaska, Arizona, California, Canada, Florida, Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota, Montana, Nebraska, New Mexico, New York, New Zealand, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Utah and Washington.

Being able to represent my tribe and my family and compete with the best Native athletes in the country was an honor, Watkins said.

Two of the many athletes in the tournament were hand-picked by the NABI Foundation Board of Directorsone male and one femaleto be awarded a $20,000 college scholarship. Their decision is based on the students academic performance.

Watkins claimed the boys 2018 NABI College Scholarship.

It was a huge honor and blessing to be chosen for the scholarship, Watkins said. I credit God and my family for helping me be a confident, successful person.

His earning the scholarship can also be traced back to years of stellar scholarly work. Watkins was class valedictorian and senior class president. He is a National Honor Society member and made First Team of the Oklahoma Basketball Coaches Association Academic All State. He scored a 31 on the ACT and maintained a 3.96 GPA.

Hearings On Confirming Kavanaugh? Not 'Til After Trump's Treason Trial "IndyWatch Feed"

I bet Seor Trumpanzee wishes he had given a Russophile and suck-up like Devin Nunes the DNI job instead of ex-Senator Dan Coats (R-IN), who he nominated and who is now serving. Nunes is, after all, an unpatriotic self-server. Is "anti-patriotic" a word? In the House Intelligence Committee on Friday, Nunes defeated an attempt by the Democrats to subpoena Trump's interpreter at his Helsinki meeting with Putin, an idea proposed by Senator Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH) and Rep. Joe Kennedy (D-MA). Adam Schiff proposed it to the Intelligence Committee and Nunes refused to recognize Schiffs motion, adjourned the committee to huddle with all the Republicans in secret and then reconvened. The committee then voted along party lines, 11-6, to shit-can Schiffs proposal.

Meanwhile Bloomberg reported yesterday that Putin told Russian diplomats that he made a proposal to Seor T in Helsinki "to hold a referendum to help resolve the conflict in eastern Ukraine, but agreed not to disclose the plan publicly so the U.S. president could consider it... Details of what the two leaders discussed in their summit in Helsinki, Finland, remain scarce, with much of the description so far coming from Russia... If Putins account of Trumps reaction is accurate, it would suggest a more flexible approach than the U.S. has shown to date on the issue. At the Helsinki meeting, Trump also agreed to consider a Putin request to question the former U.S. ambassador to Moscow over U.S. campaign-finance violations that critics say Trump should have dismissed outright."...

10 Signs You Might Have Clairvoyant Abilities "IndyWatch Feed World"

For those who might not be aware clairvoyance is the supposed power to see events or objects that our senses cannot perceive. This being a perceptiveness or intuitiveness that few people are able to master.

If you have ever had a really odd feeling about a situation you were in or someone before you, then you could be one of the few that are truly capable of tapping into the abilities locked within. While your intuition will still work without tapping into this ability or these abilities it will not be anywhere near as intense as it could be. Being able to use clairvoyance is to truly be able to see with your third eye.

This inner seeing will be much different from how you have most likely seen it on the television screen but it is still very real. Below I am going to go over some of the signs that might indicate you are tapping into something you are not quite aware of. Sometimes you can be working with special gifts all the while being completely unaware of it. Becoming aware will help you to unlock a whole new world.

10 Signs You Might Be Clairvoyant and How to Work With Your Powers:

1. You notice flashes of light from the corner of your eye.

Seeing these flashes of light might not seem like much to you from the beginning but as time goes on you will better understand them. They are beings that are not quite ready to be made out. While you are noticing them you are not truly ready to see them just yet.

2. You might see symbols within your mind.

Things might come to you in your minds eye and remind you of different things. While this is not always going to be easy to interpret, sometimes it could be as simple as seeing a cake on someones birthday. This is something you really need to pay attention to.

3. You have extremely vivid prophetic dreams.

Vivid dreams are very common in people with this kind of ability. When we are asleep the veil is thinnest and those of the other worlds can share things with us. This meaning they might be trying to tell you something.

4. Your intuition seems to work much better than that of others.

If your intuition works in what seems like overdrive, then you are most likely doing something right. As long as your intuition isnt getting things wrong and keeping you paranoid things will go well. Just be aware of your gift and see where it takes you.

5. You can feel when something/someone from the afterlife is near....


UK to refuse Brexit bill without trade deal: report "IndyWatch Feed War"

Britain will only pay its EU divorce bill if the bloc agrees the framework for a future trade deal, the new Brexit Secretary warned in an interview published Sunday.

Dominic Raab, who replaced David Davis after he quit the role earlier this month in protest over the governments Brexit strategy, said some conditionality between the two was needed.

He added that the Article 50 mechanism used to trigger Britains imminent exit from the European Union provided for new deal details.

AFP/File | Britain is set to leave the EU on March 30, 2019 but the two sides want to strike a divorce agreement by late October, 2018 in order to give parliament enough time to endorse a deal

Article 50 requires, as we negotiate the withdrawal agreement, that theres a future framework for our new relationship going forward, so the two are linked, Raab told the Sunday Telegraph.

You cant have one side fulfilling its side of the bargain and the other side not, or going slow, or failing to commit on its side.

So I think we do need to make sure that theres some conditionality between the two.

Dominic Raab

The British government has sent mixed signals so far on the divorce bill.

Prime Minister Theresa May agreed in December to a financial settlement totalling 35 to 39 billion ($46-51 billion, 39-44 billion euros) that ministers said depended on agreeing future trade ties.

But cabinet members have since cast doubt on the position.

Finance minister Philip Hammond said shortly afterwards he found it inconceivable Britain would not pay its bill, which he described as not a credible scenario.

Couples Who Fart in Front of Each Other Are More Likely to Stay Together "IndyWatch Feed World"

Some relationships are a bit closed off but others are very open. If you cannot fart in front of your partner do you really have a relationship at all?

We all fart, it is a natural part of life and when it comes to the person we end up being with forever, we need to be able to let one rip without feeling self-conscious. This is one of the truest forms of intimacy when you really think about it. Being real with one another on this level is amazing even if from afar it sounds gross.

Regardless of how you look at it, being able to fart in front of one another is also proof that you are one hundred percent comfortable with the person you are with. According to Huffington Post, many psychologists think that because of the social stigma we do not often feel free enough to do it. Even from a young age, we tend to be embarrassed by farting in front of others so there is, of course, reason as to why someone might not be as quick to let one rip and you might be but they will get there.

The couple that farts together or at least in front of one another will most likely last longer because they are on the same level. They are able to talk to one another, try new things, and be humans. That being said, it is probably not a good idea to hold the blanket over your partners head forcing him or her to inhale your gas. There are lines and if you look they are clearly drawn.

You should always be as respectful as possible even when letting gas go. Say excuse me and dont waft it towards anyone else. We all feel the need to do this from time to time and should be able to do so.

DSC wrote as follows in regards on their website:

Fart enough to show humanity, vulnerability, and closeness, but not so much as to literally drive someone out of the room (every time). Relationships need fart-free zones, just like they need talk-free zones. Ideally, wed only let out the nicest farts, the same way wed never blurt out a harsh truth about someones morning breath or tendency to tell the same bad jokes over and over. But it is simply not always possible to edit your farts. The worst farts, like the awful truth, have a way of outing themselves at inopportune times. Thats the thing about farts. Its also the thing about love.

For more information on how close farting could bring you and your partner feel free to check out the video below. Have you ever really thought about this? I for one am quite intrigued.



Justice Dept releases surveillance applications for former Trump aide "IndyWatch Feed World"

The documents have been at the heart of a controversy over alleged bias at the FBI. Conservatives have sought to cast doubt on the information used as the basis for acquiring the warrants on Page and are eager to review details of the FISA warrants. Page himself has also reportedly called for the release of the FISA application that he calls "illegitimate."


17 Things Never Knew About Cheating "IndyWatch Feed World"

Cheating is something most people in relationships are terrified of. It ruins any and all sense of trust you have with your partner, and most of the time is enough to completely ruin the relationship.

When it comes to the pain that a person ends up feeling because their partner has cheated on them, nothing compares. Being with someone that has cheated on you teaches you that sometimes moving on is the best option even if it really fucking sucks. With that being said, there are a lot of different things people dont usually know about cheating. Cheating is a lot more complex than youd think. It isnt just one quick bad decision it is so much more than that.

17 Things You Probably Dont Know About Cheating:

1. It does not happen overnight.

Cheating is not something that just happens overnight. The choice to cheat is something that usually takes time for someone to make. Thought goes into this even if it doesnt seem like it at the time.

2. You will never truly get the full story.

You might go through their phone and they might open up once caught, but the full story will never be revealed. You will never know all the details of what happened or is happening. The cheating itself will still come off as mysterious.

3. The person cheating on you knows they are betraying you.

The person who cheated or is cheating knows right from the get-go that he or she is betraying you. The fact of the matter is, they just dont care. I know it is a sad situation and that it hurts, but you should never let yourself forget this.

4. They chose to do it and you cannot force yourself to believe otherwise.

Your partner chose to cheat on you, it isnt all the person who they cheated withs fault. Your partner is the one who owes you loyalty. Do not let yourself think that your partner was forced into anything.

5. They dont want to hear about it, they want to shove it under the rug as quickly as they can.

Your partner might act like he or she feels bad about what was done, but truthfully, they dont want to give you time to get over it. They just want to stop hearing about it and stop having it brought up so they cave on most things. This doesnt mean it wont happen again.

6. The signs are almost always present.

The signs are not going to just disappear. If he or she is hiding his or her phone and working late you should take note. Nip things in the butt before they get worse.

7. Just because you caught them doesnt mean it wont happen again.

Your partner might say that they will never do it again but you dont know if they are being honest or not. That is something that you have t...


Whats Inside a Scientology E-meter? "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

Hackaday does a tear-down:

This is something weve been waiting a very long time for. The Church of Scientology uses devices called E-Meters to measure Thetans in the body. Were not going to discuss this further, because we dont want to be murdered. In reality, the E-Meter is simply a device that costs five thousand dollars and only measures the resistance of the human body. It does this by having the subject hold two copper cylinders and a simple Wheatstone bridge. Why does the E-Meter cost five thousand dollars? As [Play With Junk] found out, its an exquisitely engineered piece of hardware.

[...] Whats most impressive is the quality of the components that go into a machine that effectively only measures the resistance of the human body. The trim pot is a Vishay wire-wound precision potentiometer that costs somewhere between $20 and $60. The power switch is an over-specced switch that probably costs $5. The control pots look and feel great, and the wiring is wrapped around chokes.

Is it powered by Thetans? Because that would be awesome.

Chet Raymo, Under the Surface "IndyWatch Feed World"

Under the Surface
by Chet Raymo

Somewhere, in something I have written, I recall quoting with approval this passage from Edward Abbey's "Desert Solitaire": For my own part I am pleased enough with surfaces - in fact they alone seem to me to be of much importance. Such things for example as the grasp of a child's hand in your own, the flavor of an apple, the embrace of a friend or lover, the silk of a girl's thigh, the sunlight on rock and leaves, the feel of music, the bark of a tree, the abrasion of granite and sand, the plunge of clear water into a pool, the face of the wind - what else is there? What else do we need?

Pleased enough with surfaces. Yes, I know what I meant. Pleased enough with this world, here and now, this world of light and matter. Not wanting or needing that other world that occupies so many people, a world of supernatural agencies, spirits, disembodied presences. Give me a world I can see and hear and touch and taste. Give me a world with heft and substance, a world with surfaces that shine and shimmer. What else is there? What else do we need?

Well, maybe not. I was scanning issues of Science and Nature, with their usual illustrations of the molecules of life, the nuclei acids and the proteins. The elaborate machinery that unseen, under the surface, endow the apple's flavor, the silk of skin, the abrasion of sand. Think of it. Atoms that are mere whiffs of resonance, binding into molecules, twisting and turning into endless shapes, fitting together like hand and glove, endlessly spinning and weaving, all without the slightest conscious participation on our part. Abbey's world of surfaces spun out of the mysterious, endlessly active, subsurface stuff of the world.

Pleased enough with surfaces? Not really. I want to know what's under the surface, that world of molecular fre...

Rep. Mark Meadows Calls For Carter Page FISA Docs to be Declassified, Unredacted "IndyWatch Feed"

On Saturday, Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton announced documents related to the FISA warrants on Trumps former campaign advisor, Carter Page were released by the FBI and arrived at JW headquarters.

Fitton said Saturday evening Judicial Watch received the requested documents and even though they are heavily redacted, they confirm the FBI and DOJ misled the courts.

Obamas Deep State DOJ and FBI withheld information about Hillary Clinton and the DNC being behind the information used to obtain the FISA warrant.

Freedom Caucus Chairman Mark Meadows (R-NC) called for the FISA docs to be declassified so Americans can know the truth.

Meadows tweeted: Potentially groundbreaking development here. The Carter Page FISA docs should be declassified and further unredacted (protecting only sources and methods) so Americans can know the truth.

If the previous admin was funneling campaign research toward surveillance, we need to know.

Comey, Rosenstein, McCabe and Sally Yates all signed the FISA applications even though Hillarys fraudulent Russia dossier was used as a pretext to obtain the warrants.

Obamas Deep State FBI and DOJ obtained a FISA warrant on Carter Page in October of 2016 and three subsequent renewals in order to spy on Trumps campaign and transition team.

By law, the FBI must present to the FISC new, compelling information gathered from current monitoring in order to get a FISA warrant renewed every 90 days

However, the applications filed to renew the Carter Page FISA warrants simply recycle old Christopher Steele/Yahoo information [Michael Isikoffs Yahoo article on Carter Page] from the original application, reported Paul Sperry.

What is She Wearing? Hillary Clinton Looks Like Hell at OzyFest in New York (VIDEO) "IndyWatch Feed"

New York Twice-failed presidential hopeful, Hillary Clinton spoke at Ozyfest, a two-day festival in Central Park, on Saturday and she looked terrible.

Hillary donned a mumu-style top that nearly touched the floor and white pants. Her hair was disheveled and she had very prominent bags under her eyes.

To think this woman almost became the 45th president of the US.

Hillary Clinton complained about Russia and Vladimir Putin for almost 45 minutes straight during a Q&A session with Laurene Powell Jobs, founder of Emerson Collection.

Old Crooked claimed the Russians are still trying to hack into our computer systems she took it so far as to say the Russians may actually hack into the voting machines and servers that count the votes during the 2018 midterm election.

But everyone is talking about Hillarys appearance she looked like hell.


Twitter users slammed Hillary Clintons appearance. Many asked if she was wearing a hospital gown or generally said she looked unwell.

The Fed announced they are not considering digital currency, just like the Fed said back prior to the 2008 recession, they are not predicted or do not see a recession anytime soon. The US debt is not being paid down, the payments are going to the interest and soon the tax receipts will not be enough to cover the interest. Trump takes the next step, calls out the Fed and drops the first set of bread crumbs to create the narrative on why the economy crashed.

The Russian Interference Scandal, In a Nutshell "IndyWatch Feed War"

A few dozen GRU officers spent several thousand dollars to acquire fake U.S. identities and post fake news on U.S. social media, before and after the 2016 election. They hacked into some state and local electoral boards and for some reason (maybe just to see if they could do it) stole information on half a million voters in Illinois and Arizona. (Just like the NSA probably has information on lots of Russian voters.)

The impact of these posts has been exaggerated. They certainly did not shape the election. Those suggesting otherwise are either ignorant or driven by butt-headed Russophobia, or both.

The Russian officers hacked the DNC and (allegedly) gave the files to Wikileaks, which released them, revealing that FACT that the monstrously corrupt Debbie Wasserman Schultzs DNC had rigged the (fake) Democratic primary for Hillary against Bernie.

The latter is really the big sin. How DARE the leaker leak the fact that the U.S. system is so undemocratic. How dare anybody look at the empires electoral process and say the emperor has no clothes.

Bernie Sanders was much more popular than Hillary Clinton throughout the Democratic primaries. Multiple polls showed him much better poised to defeat the republican candidate than Hillary. But Debbie told her staffers, Dont be silly, Bernies not going to win. She made sure her candidate won. But as the Democrats arrived at their nominating convention in July 2016 Wikileaks published her scandalous emails and she and the whole DNC leadership were obliged to resign in shame.

Wasserman Schultzs successor, CNN commentator and overt Hillary shill Donna Brazile has apologized to Sanders for her own inappropriate aid to Clinton (passing along debate questions to her during the campaign) and for the DNCs inappropriate handling of campaign funds to advantage Clinton.

In its fixation on the question of Russian interference the media ignores the content of that interferencewhich was, more significantly than the production of disinformation, the revelation of inconvenient truth. The Democratic Party thwarted the highly promising candidacy of Bernie Sanders, bitterly disappointing (and one would hope, appropriately disillusioning) a generation.

The U.S. electoral system is not sacrosanct. Its a particularly corrupt form of what Marxists call bourgeois democracy, meaning that it allows the voter a choice of at least two Wall Street-backed candidates for an office. The voter is supposed to appreciate this right to vote for one or the other offered. In 2016 this meant the precious right to vote for (1) a buffoon nominated as Republican candidate due to the corporate medias relentless promotion of him through free air time (in Nov. 2015 The Nation reported that Trump was getting 23 times as much free media coverage as Sanders), or (2)...

Heres How the Russian Military Is Organizing to Develop AI "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

Harking back to Soviet big science, a 10-point plan calls for new organizations and focus areas, from job training to a giant new R&D campus.

The Russian Ministry of Defense is pursuing artificial intelligence with an urgency that has only grown since Vladimir Putins rule the world speech in September. But after several years of watching American and Chinese researchers accumulate breakthroughs and funding, while Russia continues to lack a relevant high-tech culture, Ministry leaders have decided that if they cant outspend their global competitors, perhaps they can out-organize them.

So in March, the MOD along with the Ministry of Education and Science of the Russian Federation, or MES ; and the Russian Academy of Sciences gathered domestic and international developers and users at a conference intended to take stock of the worlds AI prowess, and develop plans to focus Russias academic, scientific, and commercial communities to compete.


How Artificial Intelligence Will Reshape the Global Order "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

Just as competition between liberal democratic, fascist, and communist social systems defined much of the twentieth century, so the struggle between liberal democracy and digital authoritarianism is set to define the twenty-first.

The debate over the effects of artificial intelligence has been dominated by two themes. One is the fear of a singularity, an event in which an AI exceeds human intelligence and escapes human control, with possibly disastrous consequences. The other is the worry that a new industrial revolution will allow machines to disrupt and replace humans in everyor almost everyarea of society, from transport to the military to healthcare.

There is also a third way in which AI promises to reshape the world. By allowing governments to monitor, understand, and control their citizens far more closely than ever before, AI will offer authoritarian countries a plausible alternative to liberal democracy, the first since the end of the Cold War. That will spark renewed international competition between social systems.

For decades, most political theorists have believed that liberal democracy offers the only path to sustained economic success. Either governments could repress their people and remain poor or liberate them and reap the economic benefits. Some repressive countries managed to grow their economies for a time, but in the long run authoritarianism always meant stagnation. AI promises to upend that dichotomy. It offers a plausible way for big, economically advanced countries to make their citizens rich while maintaining control over them.

Old Phone, New Remote Switch "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

With mobile phones now ubiquitous for the masses in much of the world for over two decades, something a lot of readers will be familiar with is a drawer full of their past devices. Alongside the older smartphone youll have a couple of feature phones, and probably at the bottom a Nokia candybar or a Motorola flip phone. There have been various attempts over the years to make use of the computing power the more recent ones contain through using their smartphone operating systems, but the older devices remain relatively useless.

[Vishwasnavada] has a neat plan though, using an ancient phone as a remote trigger device, by interfacing it with an Arduino. There are many ways this could be achieved depending on the model of the phone in question, but one thing common to nearly all devices is a vibration motor. Removing the motor and taking its power line to a GPIO allows the Arduino to sense when the phone is ringing. The idea then is that a call can be placed to the phone which is not picked up, but because it triggers the vibration motor it can be used to make the microcontroller do something remotely. A hack with limited capabilities then, but one that is cheap and simple, uses a recycled device, and should work almost anywhere populated on the planet given the global reach of 2G networks.

This isnt the first respin of a classic Nokia weve brought you, they will also talk data.

The end of democracy? Hello plutocracy "IndyWatch Feed"

By Dorothy Bruce

The dithering, vacillation and obfuscation of the Prime Minister as she tries to keep her party together is a sight to behold. Remainers and right-wing Brexiters are engaged in a tug-of-was with Mrs May birling in the centre, pulling first the rope on one side, then on the other. But her clumsy footwork in her kitten-heeled shoes only ensures that she gets thoroughly tangled in the rope and ends flailing on the ground, arms waving, legs cycling, pleading with her audience in the EU stalls to give in and let her have her way, otherwise the whole clanjamfry will collapse and they could have to start again. Perhaps with another leader, perhaps with another party.

They of course are stifling laughs and guffaws behind their hands, aware that the fankle is putting the UK on a direct course for a hard Brexit, yet at the same time feeling some sympathy for the hapless Mrs May, caught between a vice and a grape press.

 In her parliamentary, and parliamentary committee performances, and on television Mrs May looks to all the world like an incompetent performer, not on top of her brief, merely programmed to repeat a given number of phrases whether relevant or not, whether answering the question or not.

Ad nauseam

Yet behind all this bluff and bluster, looking like someone drowning or suffocating in a vortex of her own making, there is a niggling question of whether this charade is being acted out on purpose, if for no other reason than that it seems inconceivable that a UK Prime Minister could be so staggeringly incompetent.

At the beginning of the Brexit negotiations Mays stock phrase was No deal is better than a bad deal. It was repeated ad nauseam until she eventually moved on to another equally opaque phrase. At the time the expectation was that there would be a deal, though it may take time to achieve. But no sane commentator expected the foot-dragging, the chaining and padlocking themselves to the UK railings approach displayed by the Tory Government. The EU made their position eminently clear from the outset, a position signed up to by all twenty seven other members.

Mrs May has laid down red lines, refusing to cross or move them, whilst not accepting that the EU also has it red lines, accepted by 27 governments. A deal was there to be done but the UK seemed strangely reluctant to even talk about a deal, or listen to what EU negotiators were telling them. There was that famous photo taken on the first day of negotiations when David Davis and his team sat at one side of the table without one piece of paper in front of them, whilst the EU side sat behind piles of documents and reams of paper. It certainly...

Newly Released FISA Docs Contradict Strzoks Sworn Claims He Had Nothing to Do With Carter Page FISA Warrant "IndyWatch Feed"

On Saturday, Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton announced documents related to the FISA warrants on Trumps former campaign advisor, Carter Page were released by the FBI and arrived at JW headquarters.

Obamas Deep State FBI and DOJ obtained a FISA warrant on Carter Page in October of 2016 and three subsequent renewals in order to spy on Trumps campaign and transition team.

Comey, Rosenstein, McCabe and Sally Yates all signed the FISA applications even though Hillarys fraudulent Russia dossier was used as a pretext to obtain the warrants.

Fitton said Saturday evening Judicial Watch received the requested documents and even though they are heavily redacted, they confirm the FBI and DOJ misled the courts.

Obamas Deep State DOJ and FBI withheld information about Hillary Clinton and the DNC being behind the information used to obtain the FISA warrant.

The newly released docs also reveal Peter Strzok did indeed provide information which was used to obtain a FISA warrant on Carter Page, directly contradicting his sworn claims to GOP lawmakers.

During Peter Strzoks closed-door testimony to GOP lawmakers last Wednesday, he swore he was not involved in the drafting of the Carter Page FISA warrant nor did he provide any evidence or information to the FISC.

Strzok said he provided no substantive input on the applicationhe didnt supply any evidence for it and was not involved in presenting it to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court for approval, according to these sources, reported The Daily Beasts Betsy Woodruff.

Scientists reverse aging-associated skin wrinkles and hair loss in a mouse model "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. Wrinkled skin and hair loss are hallmarks of aging. What if they could be reversed?

Keshav Singh, Ph.D., and colleagues have done just that, in a mouse model developed at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. When a mutation leading to mitochondrial dysfunction is induced, the mouse develops wrinkled skin and extensive, visible hair loss in a matter of weeks. When the mitochondrial function is restored by turning off the gene responsible for mitochondrial dysfunction, the mouse returns to smooth skin and thick fur, indistinguishable from a healthy mouse of the same age.

To our knowledge, this observation is unprecedented, said Singh, a professor of genetics in the UAB School of Medicine.

"The Illusion of Truth"
by PsyBlog

"We see ads for the same products over and over again. Politicians repeat the same messages endlessly (even when it has nothing to do with the question they've been asked). Journalists repeat the same opinions day after day. Can all this repetition really be persuasive?

It seems too simplistic that just repeating a persuasive message should increase its effect, but that's exactly what psychological research finds (again and again). Repetition is one of the easiest and most widespread methods of persuasion. In fact it's so obvious that we sometimes forget how powerful it is. People rate statements that have been repeated just once as more valid or true than things they've heard for the first time. They even rate statements as truer when the person saying them has been repeatedly lying (Begg et al., 1992). And when we think something is more true, we also tend to be more persuaded by it. Several studies have shown that people are more swayed when they hear statements of opinion and persuasive messages more than once.

It Aint Half Hot Mum was the second of the three sitcom series co-written by David Croft set in the Second World War, the first being Dads Army (19681977) with Jimmy Perry and the third being Allo, Allo! (19821992) with Jeremy Lloyd.

Set during the Second World War (in the period just after the German surrender when the Allies were trying to finish the war by defeating Japan in Asia), the show focuses on a group of British soldiers stationed at the Royal Artillery Depot in Deolali, India, where soldiers were kept before being sent to fight at the front lines. The main characters are performers in the bases Concert Party, which involved putting on comic acts and musical performances (similar to those seen in a music hall) for the other soldiers prior to their departure for the front lines. The soldiers in the Concert Party all love this particular job, as it keeps them out of combat duty, but some do harbour dreams of becoming world-famous actors when they leave the army.

One thing I have learned after being involved in alternative journalism for all these years is that coincidences often lead toward some concrete event.

Sometimes, there are genuinely unrelated events that mean absolutely nothing. But, I still believe its important to pay attention, dont you?

The Helsinki Summit or the Treason Summit, as some call it of the 16th of July, has come and gone.  It left a smell of burning hot air behind.

President Trump opened the meeting by saying that up to now relations between the United States and Russia were bad, and confessing that the US was to blame for it. He wanted them to improve and hoped that this meeting he indicated that others of similar nature may follow may be a first step towards normalizing relations between the two atomic super-powers which together, he said, control 90% of the worlds nuclear destructive force. A timely admission, but ignoring the most dangerous and unpredictable atomic power, the rogue nation of Israel.

If ever the promising dream-like sounds of Donald Trump of denuclearizing the globe were to see the light of day, Israel would have to be among the first countries to be de-nuclearized, which would be a real step towards world security and peace in the Middle East.

During the later Press Conference, Trump though voicing his appreciation for the fine secret services of his country, admitted that he trusted more Putins word on Russias non-interference than that of his secret service  why would they interfere? for which he was trashed at home by his adversaries, the MSM, the democrats and even the Republicans. Now, back home, Trump has to accommodate the public, telling them he mispronounced would; he really meant wouldnt a first rate spectacle of idiocy that, surely, after a while will go away, as everything does that has no solution, but gambles with dishonesty.

There is no winning in the indoctrinated and brainwashed to the bones American public. It couldnt be more obvious how the media are rallying the American people for war with Russia. The greedy military needs war and the economy of the US of A also needs war to boost her GDP, or rather for sheer economic survival. The topic of Russian interference in the 2016 Presidential Elections will just not be dropped. After a zillion of proven false accusations, in a reasonable world it would fade away. Not in the US. It is a clear sign of the decline of the empire. Its the desperate hopelessness of the naked emperor that speaks.

So, they call Trump treacherous towards his country a President who dares saying the truth publicly is called by the slimy Democrats and the yet slimier Republicans and foremost by the mainstream media a case for impeachment.

There is an internal battle raging in the United States. It pulls the country apart. Its the want of making America Great Again, by concentrating on internal production for local markets, versus the globalized aspirations the drive for a dollar world hegemony and the full and total subjugation of the peoples and their resources of this globe. The latter will not be possible without an all-out war...

America is Close to a British (not Russian) Takeover: LORD MARK MALLOCH-BROWN The Globalist Racketeer with George Soros

Date: Saturday, 21-Jul-2018 12:17:49

Source: Rumor Mill News | By RumorMail

He rigs elections from Venezuela to Estonia

He rigs electronic voting machines owned by him, George Soros and Mitt Romney

He controls the Senior Executive Service (SES)

He steals trillions of dollars from inventors, Main Street and a rigged global stock market

His slogan should be Make America British Again


(Jun. 19, 2018)The kindest thing we can say about Queen's Privy Council kingpin Lord Mark Malloch-Brown is that he is certainly one of a kind.

It has taken an entire group of researchers over a month just to gather the facts about him. These facts are scattered across the Internet in many dozens of biographies in an evident strategy to confuse people about his background. No two are alike. These convoluted biographies are telling for a man with literally trillions of dollars at his fingertips; meaning he can buy national elections anywhere on the planet, but he cannot seem to write his resume. (Note: Such biographies are an early clue of a corruptocrat who is hiding his secret activity.)

New, previously undisclosed associations were uncovered during this research. For example, Malloch-Brown has never disclosed anywhere his advisory role in the Institute for Global Law and Policy (IGLP) at Harvard Law School (ca. 2009).

Harvard Law's IGLP advised Hillary Clinton, George Bush, Barack Obama, and their new Economic Council director Larry Summers on distribution of the 2008 "bank bailout" funds. Literally tens of billions of these U.S. taxpayer dollars flowed into Malloch-Brown's Privy Council entities via his...

An Open Letter to Bernie Sanders: No Bernie, It Wasnt the Russians "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

By Teodrose Fikre

Let me preface this open letter of sorts that Im writing to Senator Bernie Sanders. Im not penning this missive as though Im a crestfallen supporter, after falling for the okie doke in 2008 and waking up to the deception of Obama, I decided to stop putting my faith in politicians. Rather, I write this article on behalf of Bernies legions of supporters and the millions of Americans who put their faith in someone who spoke against the iniquities that are ravaging our nation and our planet as a whole.

Bernie, it was your decision to speak against this consolidated graft that is cratering society that captured the imagination of the disaffected and gave people hope that their voices could be heard above the cash extortion that dominates our government.

Instead of continuing your rebellion against the establishment and speaking against the corrosive nature of our politics, you are charting a course towards irrelevance by jumping on this cockamamie #Russiagate narrative. Here is what I dont get about your decision to glom on to this most ridiculous assertion that 12 Russians had more impact on our elections than the the billions of dollars that are spent by corporations and plutocrats to bend elected officials like pretzels. The insinuation the punditry is making is that Americans were duped to vote against their own self-interests because they refused to vote for Hillary Clinton.

Never mind that Hillary was one of the most divisive and disliked politician to run for president in modern American history. Never mind that the DNC essentially rigged the primaries to ensure her victory at your expense. Instead of focusing on the structural and systematic flaws that render our votes irrelevant, fingers are pointed at a manufactured villain halfway around the world in order to distract from the fact that our elections have been hijacked by moneyed interests and entrenched leeches who are sucking the citizenry dry. Whatever efforts Russia might have made to influence our elections were outweighed by a kleptocracy that hacked down our democracy with dark money and self-centered politicians who put their interests above that of the people they purportedly serve.



Greenwald: Ecuador President Will Handover Assange to British During London Visit "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

After 6 six years of arbitrary detention in the basement of the Ecuadorian Embassy in Belgravia, London, the worlds longest slow-motion chase may be reaching its climatic conclusion.

It appears that Ecuador has caved into US pressure on the issue. When they first gave asylum to Assange in 2012, his stock was high among the international liberal intelligensia, and so then President Rafael Correa was able to use this as a public relations brace against western pressure on the issue. Unfortunately, the 2016 US Election changed all that, as Assange and Wikileaks were blamed for hurting Hillary Clintons run for the White House. Instead Assange is now shunned by the Liberal Left and embraced by supporters of Trump and Russia two reasons why the current Ecuadorian government appear ready to wash their hands of Assanges cause.

Another sign that the US forces are pushing events is last weeks announcement that an Ecuadorian court ordered the arrest of Assanges main ally former President  Correa leaving Assange more isolated than ever.

According to reports, events could accelerate as soon as this Monday morning.

RT International reported today

Ecuadorian President Lenin Moreno is either about to strike or has already struck an agreement with British authorities on withdrawing the asylum protection of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, Glenn Greenwald reports.

Moreno is visiting the UK as part of his European trip between July 22 and 28. His visit is not said to be an official one, so he is not expected to meet with any high-ranking UK officials and would instead participate in the Global Disability Summit on July 24, which is co-hosted by the UK government.

However, the Ecuadorian leader is also expected to use his trip to the British Isles to finalize an agreement under which Ecuador will withdraw its asylum protection of Julian Assange, according to the Intercepts co-editor, Glenn Greenwald, who is best known for a series of reports detailing the US surveillance programs based on the documents leaked by Edward Snowden. Greenwald also su...

Poisoning our children "IndyWatch Feed Pacific"

Failures in chemicals testing and regulation cause untold damage to our children and their environment.

  • In the U.S., there are about 80,000 registered chemicals. Of these, only a few hundred have been tested for safety, and even that testing is considered inadequate by most toxicologists
  • Chemicals are tested in isolation. In real world application however, chemicals are used in combination, and the few studies done on synergetic effects reveal even nontoxic chemicals can become toxic when mixed together
  • The agricultural and global chemical industries have manipulated the system to control and suppress safety concerns. Through regulatory capture, regulators end up working for the industrys rather than the publics interest
  • Regulators make decisions on the safety of poisons in our food and environment based on data provided by the company selling the toxin, and outsiders cannot review that evidence
  • Theres no specific safety testing done for children, but studies show there is no lower level of pesticides that is safe for children

No to Unreasonable Demands Says Annan

 21 JUL, 2018 - 11:07
Lincoln Towindo

Political parties should not make unreasonable demands and should instead seek legal recourse if they feel the electoral process is being violated, chairperson of The Elders, Kofi Annan, said today.

The Elders is an independent group of global leaders that work together for peace and human rights.

Speaking at a press conference held in the capital, Mr Annan who is also former United Nations secretary-general and a Nobel Peace Laureate said making unreasonable demands, including inciting the population, had the potential to complicate the electoral process and yielding unforeseen outcomes.

Politics is a tricky business, there are demands and there are demands. What is important is that we all play by the rules and we make reasonable demands; if we make demands which are unreasonable and which cannot be fulfilled, we are complicating the process, said Mr Annan.

But we should be careful of what we say and what we demand because the main thing is not to incite. If you incite the population you never know what happens and this is the last thing that the nation and the people of Zimbabwe need. No incitement and I think they should stay within the code of conduct but reasonable demands they should be able to make, he said.

Zimbabwe Safer Under Zanu-PF ED

 20 JUL, 2018 - 00:07

Sydney Kawadza in Kadoma

Zanu-PF is the only party able to take Zimbabwe into the future, and is confident of victory in the forthcoming harmonised elections, President Mnangagwa has said.

Addressing a huge crowd at Rimuka Stadium in Kadoma yesterday, President Mnangagwa said Zimbabwe was safe in the hands of the ruling party and that this would be proved at the polls on July 30.

He reiterated that the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (ZEC) was an independent body formed through an Act of Parliament with no input from the Executive.

President Mnangagwa was in Kadoma to commission the refurbished Kadoma General Hospital, before addressing a bumper rally in the town.

The Kadoma administrative district, according to the Zanu-PF leadership, produced the highest votes for the ruling party in Mashonaland West during the 2013 harmonised elections and the trend is expected to be repeated this year.

Zanu-PF is the party with a history and it knows the origins of the country, said President Mnangagwa.

Ndiyo inoziva matambudziko atakapinda maari kubva kumasure kusvika nhasi uno. Ndiyozve yatinovimba nayo kuti icharamba ichiinda nesu mberi. Kubva patakasununguka tichiwana kuzvitonga kuzere zvakabva mumusangano wedu weZanu-PF.

President Mnangagwa said Zimbabwe was on the brink of a new dawn.

We have a new Zimbabwe, a new dispensation, a new future, a progressive Zimbabwe, a prosperous Zimbabwe, he said.

That Zimbabwe comes from Zanu-PF. That Zanu-PF is the people and their leaders. We are determined. We want, everyone in Zanu-PF, that there should not be any hatred and trading of insults in Zimbabwe.

That should be a thing of the past. Ikozvino toda kuparidza kubatana, toda kuparidza kuwirirana. Toda kuparidza kusimudzira nyika yedu.

President Mnangagwa said what happened in Zanu-PF where some party members sow divisions, leading to Operation Restore Legacy, would not be allowed to happen in the party again.

ZEC Chair Speaks on Voters Roll

20 JUL, 2018
Herald Reporter

The 2018 voters roll has been printed and does not have double registrations, nor dead or ghost voters, as it was specifically compiled to address the flaws of the 2013 voters roll, Zimbabwe Electoral Commission chair Justice Priscilla Chigumba has said.

In a statement released yesterday, Justice Chigumba said: The Commission would be pleased to receive a list of these dead voters for further investigation, while failure to prove such claims would mean the allegations are false.

Justice Chigumba said the Commission would not deny voters with similar names and dates of birth their right to vote simply because of allegations that they were ghosts. She said the Commission was willing to provide evidence proving that these were unique individuals with unique photographs and fingerprints.

The final voters roll has demographic details of the voter such as the first name, surname, date of birth, ID number and a photograph of the voter appear on the roll.

The MDC-Alliance led by presidential candidate Mr Nelson Chamisa has been at the forefront of spreading claims that the voters roll is flawed because it does not contain pictures of voters and that it has numerous dead and ghost voters.

This is despite the fact that the alliance has failed to provide evidence of all its claims, whose main aim is to discredit the July 30 elections.

In 2017, the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission made a bold decision to compile a new voters roll for the 2018 Harmonised Elections because of the shortcomings of the 2013 voters roll which stakeholders had brought to the attention of the Commission, said Justice Chigumba.

The Commission and stakeholders were in agreement that the 2013 voters roll had become defunct because it was not constantly updated to cater for changes in the demography of voters. The Commission, therefore, finds it very strange for anyone to compare the 2013 and the 2018 voters rolls when it is well documented that stakeholders had unanimously agreed that the 2013 roll had become difficult to use for any credible election.

What is even more shocking is the allegation that the Commission copied dead voters from the 2013 voters roll. It is difficult to imagine how a dead person...

Zimbabwe Enters New Era for Investors

19 JUL, 2018

President Mnangagwa flanked by Primary and Secondary Education Minister Professor Paul Mavima and the ministrys Secretary Dr Sylvia UteteMasango meets investors at the Presidential Education Indaba at Celebration Centre in Harare yesterday. The theme of the Indaba was Promoting access to education through infrastructure investment in schools. (Picture by Justin Mutenda)

Tendai Mugabe Senior Reporter

Zimbabwe has entered a new era in which all investment is welcome and its safety guaranteed, and where education should be used as a conduit for employment creation and revival of the economy, President Mnangagwa has said.

He said his Government was supportive of investment models that facilitated increased private sector participation in the education sector through Public Private Partnerships.

President Mnangagwa made the remarks while officiating at an infrastructure investment indaba organised by the Ministry of Primary and Secondary Education in Harare yesterday.

The indaba sought to harness investment in the education sector, especially in infrastructure development in line with the Presidents mantra that Zimbabwe is open for business and his vision of creating a middle-income economy by 2030.

As a nation, we are now in a new era where education has ceased to be a cost and must now be understood as an opportunity for investment and consequently a conduit for employment generation and economic revival, said President Mnangagwa.

The transformation of the education sector brings with it a change of mind-sets and fosters human capital development. To that end, this indaba is a very important engagement, given the demands upon every sector to positively contribute to the building, development and modernisation of our country in line with vision 2030.

Education investment must, therefore, be less fragmented or piecemeal and more coordinated, strategic and holistic.

Infrastructure development within our education institutions at every level is not an end in itself, but must facilitate the development of relevant skills and competencies for the economic needs of today and the future.

Abuse of Female ZEC Commissioners Rapped

21 JUL, 2018 - 00:07   22
Herald Reporter

First female President of Ireland and former United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights Mrs Mary Robinson, who is in the council of The Elders who are in the country ahead of the July 30 harmonised elections, has expressed concern at the abuse of female commissioners in the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (ZEC) by the MDC-Alliance.

The commissioners, including ZEC chairwoman Justice Priscilla Chigumba, have been victims of consistent abuse by the MDC-Alliance led by Mr Nelson Chamisa.

The abuse has gone more vicious as the clock ticks towards the plebiscite, with Mr Chamisa and senior members of the alliance calling Justice Chigumba names for allegedly refusing to accede to their unlawful demands.

The Elders met ZEC commissioners yesterday.

They also held separate meetings with President Mnangagwa, and the MDC-Alliance, among other opposition political parties.

ZEC commissioner Mrs Natsai Mushonga confirmed the concerns raised by Mrs Robinson on her tweeter account posting: Her excellency Mary Robinson expresses concern at the abuse of female commissioners.

Its sexism where when you dont agree with a woman you throw unomutukirira with the h . . . word. Why cant we talk and argue and agree to disagree, added Commissioner Mushonga.

British Ambassador to Zimbabwe Ms Catriona Laing reacted to the tweet saying the abuse (against ZEC female commissioners) must stop.

Good to see this abuse being called out. It needs to stop, posted Ambassador Laing on her tweeter handle.

Mrs Robinson is a forceful advocate for gender equality who was been President of Ireland from 1990-1997.

She was the UN Secretary-Generals Special Envoy for the Great Lakes Region of Africa in 2013-2014.

The MDC-T led by Mr Chamisa has shown over time that it has no respect for women.

It abused then MDC-T deputy president Dr Thokozani Khupe at the burial of Mr Morgan Tsvangirai in Buhera in February this year by calling her names and almost assaulted her before she hid in a hut.

Viruses that attack bacteria have evolved to collaborate "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

Some viruses sacrifice themselves so that others may multiply.

THAT predators often hunt in packs is a commonplace. Wolves do it. Killer whales do it. Even Velociraptor, a species of dinosaur made famous by Jurassic Park, is believed to have done it. These are, or were, all intelligent species, capable of exchanging and interpreting information. But the logic of pack hunting, that many may achieve what one alone cannot, and that individual pack members may perform different roles, does not depend on intelligence. Indeed, evidence has now emerged that this logic applies to viruses, the simplest biological entities of all. It was published this week in Cell, by Edze Westra and Stineke van Houte at the University of Exeter, in England.

The viruses in question are bacteriophages, which hunt bacteria. They do not eat their prey. Rather, they take over its genetic apparatus to create replicas of themselves, killing the host as a consequence. To do so they have to penetrate a bacteriums cell wall and then subvert its internal defences, of which there are several. One of the best known, because it is the basis of an emerging gene-editing technology (see article), is called CRISPR. The CRISPR system detects and cuts up alien DNA. In the wild, such DNA will almost always have come from a virus. To counter this, some bacteriophages have evolved ways of gumming up CRISPRs cellular machinery. Dr Westra and Dr van Houte have shown that, in essence, such phages collaborate. Some do the gumming. Others hijack the genetic apparatus.

ANC Leading Ahead of Next Years Elections

 17 JUL, 2018 - 00:07

JOHANNESBURG. The African National Congress (ANC) remains the top choice for South African voters ahead of next years general election.

Thats according to market research firm Ipsos latest Pulse of the People study.

The study shows that the ruling party is holding close to a 60 percent majority among a randomly selected sample of over 3 000 South Africans.

Speaking to Clement Manyathela on The Midday Report, IPSOS research manager Antonia Squara also revealed how opposition parties are fairing.

The Democratic Alliance (DA) is sitting on 13 percent and the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) is on 7 percent.

She adds that the DAs support has dropped slightly, and puts it down to the partys ongoing internal issues and the spike in the popularity of the ANC since the so-called Ramaphoria. Radio702


BREAKING: Newly Released Docs Related to FISA Warrants on Carter Page Confirm Obama FBI, DOJ Misled Courts "IndyWatch Feed"

On Saturday, Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton announced documents related to the FISA warrants on Trumps former campaign advisor, Carter Page were released by the FBI and arrived at JW headquarters.

Almost one year ago to the day, Judicial Watch filed a FOIA lawsuit against the DOJ for the following documents:

Copies of all proposed and all final signed FISA applications submitted to the FISC relating to Russian interference in the 2016 election, allegations of collusion between people associated with the Trump campaign and Russia, and any known Trump associates regardless of context;

Copies of all FISC responses to the above-mentioned applications in which the Court notified the FBI or Justice Department that it would not grant the proposed applications or recommended changes. If any such FISC responses were provided orally, rather than in writing, please provide copies of FBI or Justice Department records memorializing or otherwise referencing the relevant FISC responses;

Copies of all FISC orders relating to the above mentioned applications, whether denying the applications and certifications, denying the orders, modifying the orders, granting the orders, or other types of orders.

Obamas Deep State FBI and DOJ obtained a FISA warrant on Carter Page in October of 2016 and three subsequent renewals in order to spy on Trumps campaign and transition team.

Comey, Rosenstein, McCabe and Sally Yates all signed the FISA applications even though Hillarys fraudulent Russia dossier was used as a pretext to obtain the warrants.

Now this

Fitton said Saturday evening Judicial Watch received the requested documents and even though they are heavily redacted, they confirm the FBI and DOJ misled the courts.

Obamas Deep State DOJ and FBI withheld information about Hillary Clinton and the DNC being behind the information used to obtain the FISA warrant.

Mozambican MPs Approve Law Reforms for October Elections 

MAPUTO. Mozambican parliamentarians approved on Wednesday two proposals to revise the law on municipal elections, which create conditions for them to take place in October.

The National Elections Commission was recently forced to interrupt the submission of candidates as the law was not approved.

It was an instrument placed at the negotiating table by the main opposition Renamo party and the Mozambican government to end the political and military crisis that began in 2013.

The tool was submitted to the Assembly of the Republic for revision and approval by the president of Mozambique.

The Wednesday extraordinary session of the assembly follows the consensus reached recently between President Filipe Nyusi and the new leader of Renamo party, Issufo Momade.

The revised law brings innovations as the city mayor will be elected from the list presented by the political party that obtains the majority of votes in the elections.

The bill was approved by the three political parties that were also encouraged by the cost reduction to elections that the new bill will bring.

The new bill eliminates by-elections. Moreover the municipal elections will only have one ballot paper and one ballot box, meaning the electorate will not be using two ballot papers, one for the mayor and the other for the party but only one ballot paper, which is expected to bring down cost as well.

Mandelas 100th Birthday: People Speak About Land

 19 JUL, 2018 - 00:07

JOHANNESBURG. Liberation is incomplete without the return of the land, Parliaments Joint Constitutional Review Committee heard in Vryheid the KwaZulu-Natal town with the name that means freedom or liberty.

A delegation of the committee held its first public hearing on the amendment of Section 25 of the Constitution in the province on Wednesday.

The first round of 20 speakers followed the pattern established at the committees earlier hearings in the Northern Cape, Limpopo, the Free State and Mpumalanga, where most black speakers supported an amendment, and white speakers, often representing organised farmers organisations, opposed it.

The first speaker, a man who wore ANC colours, said an amendment must be implemented post-haste. He said people in the rural areas did not need smallholdings. Instead, they needed large tracts of land to sustain themselves.

A representative of the African Farmers Association of South Africa said the association supported an amendment.

The land, we must bring it back, he said.

He added that the land should be restricted to people who have the capacity to work it.

He also said that land in possession of the Ingonyama Trust should not be disturbed.

Meanwhile, a representative of a construction firm in the area said they had lost three projects since a motion to investigate an amendment to Section 25 of the Constitution had been adopted by Parliament in February.

One of these projects was from a German company which indicated that it would not invest in South Africa for two years to see how the process unfolds.

As a result of that (the three lost projects), we had to retrench 120 people, with another 40 on the cards, he said.

A representative of the KwaZulu-Natal Red Meat Producers Organisation said most livestock in the province were owned by emerging farmers and the sector had shown strong growth provincially. He said expropriation would disrupt this trend.

An Eshowe Farmers Association representative also did not support expropriation without compensation, but added that the association supported a well-thought-out, practical...

FBI Spied on Mandela After His Release from Jail

 20 JUL, 2018 - 00:07

Pix source:

WASHINGTON, DC. Newly released US intelligence documents showed that the FBI continued to investigate South Africas anti-apartheid icon Nelson Mandela as a potential communist menace even after his release from prison in 1990, a Washington-based group which sued to obtain the papers said.

Property of the People, which released the papers to mark 100 years since Mandelas birth, said:

The documents reveal that, just as it did in the 1950s and 60s with Martin Luther King Jr and the civil rights movement, the FBI aggressively investigated the US and South African anti-apartheid movements as communist plots imperilling American security.

Worse still, the documents demonstrate the FBI continued its wrong-headed communist menace investigations of Mandela and the anti-apartheid movement even after US imposition of trade sanctions against apartheid South Africa, after Mandelas globally celebrated release from prison, and after the fall of the Berlin Wall.

Mandela became South Africas first black president in 1994, and advocated reconciliation with white people who had for decades enforced the racist system of apartheid in the country.

Property of the People said on their Twitter handle @PropOTP: We just published thousands of pages #FOIA lawsuit-obtained FBI, CIA, DIA, & NSA documents re #NelsonMandela, including many docs on US agency efforts to surveil & subvert Mandela and his anti-apartheid struggle.

They also said on their website : Today (July 18), on the 100th anniversary of Nelson Mandelas birth, Property of the People is making all documents about Mandela obtained through its FOIA litigation from the FBI, CIA, DIA, and NSA available to the public.  Spanning thousands of pages, the vast majority of these documents have never before been seen by the public.

The safety of CRISPR-Cas9 gene editing is being debated "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

When CRISPR-Cas9 is used to edit genomes, off-target DNA damage is more common than previously thought.

A GREAT deal rides on the accuracy of the gene-editing tool known as CRISPR-Cas9. Since its discovery in 2012 it has become popular for tinkering with genomes of all kinds, thanks to its ability to make editing cheap and easy. Firms such as CRISPR Therapeutics, Intellia Therapeutics and Editas Medicine have been built on the idea that it could be used to develop treatments for human diseases. Editas, based in Cambridge, Massachusetts, announced this year that it would work on five new human medicines over the next five years.

In China the technology is already in clinical use. In Hangzhou Cancer Hospital, for example, CRISPR-Cas9 is being employed to engineer immune-system cells removed from patients with cancer of the oesophagus. The hope is that when the engineered cells are returned to a patients body, the editing will have improved their ability to attack tumours. More studies involving human beings are expected in other countries for the treatment of beta-thalassaemia, a blood disorder, and Lebers congenital amaurosis, a form of blindness. Further ahead, there is hope that CRISPR-Cas9 will help treat diseases such as AIDS, cystic fibrosis, Huntingtons chorea and Duchenne muscular dystrophy.

Tom-Scott Gordon: Memorandum for the President: 9/11 WTC Towers Condemned Before 9/11, Cost to Dismantle $2B+, 2007 Deadline, Known to Rudy Giuliani (Mayor of NYC from 1994 December 2001) "IndyWatch Feed War"

9/11 WTC Towers Condemned Before 9/11, Cost to Dismantle $2B+, 2007 Deadline, Known to Rudy Giuliani (Mayor of NYC from 1994 December 2001)

21 July 2018

Mr. President,

As early as 1989, it was known to the owners of WTC that the buildings must be brought down before 2007 because the interior steel and exterior aluminum were both compromised and the buildings would be at risk of collapsing the cost to dismantle them was estimated to be $2B (or more) in 2010 dollars, inclusive of asbestos remediation.

Of particular relevance is the realization that controlled demolitions were not an option because of the health hazards and collateral damage to the entire area that would result. Hence the choice was clear: spend $2B (some estimates are much higher) to take care of the problem; or fake a terrorist incident and in collaboration with a complicit insurance company and the leadership of NYC, take $7B or more in false claims for a contrived event.

The FBI or Mossad officers pretending to be FBI appears to have played a major role in the intimidation of all the architects, engineers, and photographers who spent years investigating the vulnerability of the buildings to uncontrolled collapse.

The planning for 9/11 appears to have started in earnest during the presidency of George H. W. Bush, from 1989-1993 at which time Dick Cheney was Secretary of Defense. It is possible the extraordinary attempts to ensure his son (and Vice President Dick Cheney) were elected in 2000 were in part motivated by the need to control the US Government when 9/11 inevitably occurred as planned.

Rudy Giuliani, Mayor of NYC from 1994 to December 2001, is believed to have been fully witting of the condition of the WTC buildings and the need to bring them down at great expense or by others means. None of this has been investigated by the 9/11 Commission.

Emery Roth and Associates, AIA, the Architects of Record, collected, analyzed, and disseminated all knowledge with respect to the condition of the WTC buildings while they may have destroyed all records, there are over forty (40) living architects and engineers and photographers who can be interrogated under subpoena.

Below are highlights from the reference, an 18-page document based on direct personal participation as a member of the team that fully documented the need t...

Wire Wound Resistors On Your Own "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

In all kinds of engineering, we build on abstractions in a kind of inverted pyramid. Lots of people can, for example, design a system using ready-made building blocks on printed circuit boards. Fewer people can do the same design using ICs. Fewer still can design with components. But who designs the components? Even fewer people. Then there are the people designing the constituent elements of those components. [Learnelectronics] wanted to break one of those abstraction layers so he shows how to make your own wire-wound resistors.

Wire-wound resistors are often used when you need resistance with a higher power dissipation than a common film or composition resistor. Using nichrome wire makes this more practical since a meter of it has nearly 20 ohms of resistance. A regular wire has much less resistance.  The video shows a drill winding a coil of wire neatly, but this also highlights one of the problems with wire wound resistors.

Actually, the winding introduces two problems: First, the coils could touch each other which would change the resistance. We would have been tempted to wind with a definite spacing on a form and then epoxy it to the form to give it mechanical stability. He builds his resistor into a plastic tube and does mention hed pot it if he were really going to use it, but that would still make it hard to get the resistance exact.

The other big problem with a resistor like this is that it not only looks like a coil but it acts like one, too. In some applications that doesnt matter. But in many, you dont want the giant voltage spikes that comes with a quick change in current flow. Weve seen this cause mysterious power transistor failures when a wire wound resistor served as an emitter resistor. In addition to inductance, the adjacent windings give the resistor a good bit of capacitance, as well.

Does that mean you cant use wire wound resistors? No, you just have to get the right kind. Turns out you need noninductive wire wound resistors that use something called Ayrton-Perry windings. The idea is simple. Suppose you need one meter of wire to get to 20 ohms, but you want to minimize the unwanted inductance and capacitance.

You double the amount of wire and make a 40-ohm resistor with good gap between the coils. Then you essentially wind another 40-ohm resistor in the opposite direction inside that gap (or, sometimes, on top after insulating the first winding). With the same number of turns, the magnetic fields cancel out, meaning there isnt much inductance. And the adjacent turns of wire have about the same voltage on them, so that minimizes capacitance.

Of course, now you have tw...


Prepare Yourself for the Intense Impact of the July 27th Full Blood Moon Lunar Eclipse "IndyWatch Feed World"

This July we will be experiencing a major energy shift with the July Full Blood Moon coinciding with the longest total lunar eclipse of the 21st Century. Prepare yourself to face your darkest secrets and hidden weaknesses during this uncomfortable time of personal growth and transformation.

Often blamed for times of great chaos and confusion, the full moon is well known in our society for its ability to influence the masses. Those who work in law enforcement, or staff hospital emergency rooms, can tell you just how wild this time can truly be for those that are in the trenches. What most people fail to acknowledge, however, is that the coming of the full moon isnt the only way in which the moon influences our lives.

Referred to as the Ruler of Emotions, the energy of the moon has been known to significantly impact the way we feel, act and react to the world around us. As it moves through the various phases of the lunar cycle, its influence on our emotions will also shift.  In fact, we experience a cycle in terms of our emotions that coincides directly with the lunar calendar from the inspiration to embrace new beginnings during the new moon through to the intense emotions that drive the chaos during the full moon. By learning and understanding the lunar cycle, we can take back control, harnessing its energy to propel ourselves forward towards greater success.

On July 27th we will be experiencing the next full moon, and not just any full moon this is going to be the Full Blood Moon. The impact of the Full Blood Moon will be more than just the beautiful blood red coloring that is going to sweep through our night sky. This is going to be a significant time of growth and transformation in your life, whether you like it or not. You can embrace change, recognizing all the positives that can come from this time, or you can fight it. However, I will warn you, that fighting change during a blood moon is a waste of time and energy, as it is going to force you forward, like it or not.

The wooden structure in the middle of the cornfield is both a landmark and a viewing platform that will become part of a corn maze in the fall. The floor of the platform is a bit over 3 meters high so you can see that the height of the corn is not far off that mark. It seems too early for the corn to be this tall, but staff at our local farmers market tell me that new varieties of corn mature more quickly. So quickly in fact that they already had local corn for sale. It doesnt seem that long ago that you had to wait until late August for corn-on-the-cob. I wonder when that changed?

The signs in the field are also for fall festivities when they will be used as targets for a pumpkin cannon.

12 Common Habits That Seriously Damage Your Kidneys "IndyWatch Feed World"

Whether you realize it or not your kidneys are very important. Taking care of them is something that should really be prioritized even though it rarely is.

We make healthy decisions every day in the hopes of benefiting our body so making healthy decisions in regards to our kidneys should be happening too. Some of the things we do on a day to day basis could be stressing them out or damaging them much more severely than youd think. To learn about some of the things you might be doing to harm your kidneys check out the list below.

12 Common Habits That Will Seriously Damage Your Kidneys:

1. Eating overly processed foods

Sure, processed foods taste great but they arent great for us. They are packed full of sodium and chemicals that are damaging to the body. They can contribute to kidney disease as well as a number of other health issues. It is best to avoid them as often as possible.

2. Not drinking enough water

Our bodies need water! If you are not getting enough water you are damaging more than just your kidneys. Staying hydrated will also help you to avoid kidney stones which are very painful. It is beneficial in many ways. You will notice a huge difference in your overall quality of life if you begin actually drinking the right amount of water each day.

3. Not being active enough

Sitting still for too long/too often has been linked with the development of kidney disease. Sure, it might sound silly but better to be safe than sorry. I for one would rather get up and stretch from time to time than come down with kidney disease.

4. Not getting enough sleep

Getting enough sleep is important for many reasons. Did you know your kidney function was regulated by your sleep cycle itself? If you are neglecting yourself by not getting enough sleep you are also neglecting your kidneys.

5. Drinking too much alcohol

Excess drinking is a horrible idea and you have most likely heard that before. This will double your risks of developing kidney disease and really damn your health. Alcohol is poison, try not to overdo it.

6. Smoking

This one should be a no-brainer but for some reason, people tend to overlook any smoking risks besides the ones in regards to our lungs. Smoking ads protein to our urine more often than not and...

South Carolina's 13k Electronic Voting Machines Vulnerable, Unreliable "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

The project Protect Democracy is suing the state of South Carolina because its insecure, unreliable voting systems are effectively denying people the right to vote. The project has filed a 45-page lawsuit pointing out the inherent lack of security and inauditability of these systems and concludes that "by failing to provide S.C. voters with a system that can record their votes reliably," South Carolinians have been deprived of their constitutional right to vote. Late last year, Def Con 25's Voting Village reported on the ongoing, egregious, and fraudulent state of electronic voting in the US, a situation which has been getting steadily worse since at least 2000. The elephant in the room is that these machines are built from the ground up on Microsoft products, which is protected with a cult-like vigor standing in the way of rolling back to the only known secure method, hand counted paper ballots.

Transition To Autonomous Cars Will Take Longer Than You Think, Waymo CEO Tells Governors "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

The big roll out Was going to be 2022, now looking like maybe 2027. There has been some shady stuff happening in the background in the USA to hold up self driving cars. It seems the people who were set to lose a lot of money on the changeover have found ways to hold it up.

Despite the rapid accumulation of testing miles, Krafcik warned the governors not to end all of their infrastructure investments just yet. Responding to a question about the need for new parking facilities, he responded that there will be a very long period of overlap between personally owned human driven vehicles and shared automated vehicles from Waymo and others. He suggested that it might be possible to slow down on some massive parking structures but was non-committal on timelines.

With Waymo planning to launch its commercial service by the end of 2018, GM coming in 2019 and others including Zoox, Daimler and Voyage in the next 23 years, there will be shared automated vehicles on the road. However, these will be limited to locations where they are demonstrated to function reliably and there is a market for ride-hailing despite the optimistic projections of some investors and developers. Widespread adoption in the millions of vehicles globally is unlikely before the latter half of the 2020s.

Krafcik was equally non-committal to Sandovals query about when he might be able to purchase his own car with Waymo technology. While Waymo and Fiat Chrysler are in talks about utilizing this virtual driver system on cars for retail sale, Krafcik said its going to be some time yet. The emphasis for now is the ride-hailing service, trucking and logistics and working with transit authorities. Supplying systems for personal use cars is last on the timeline.

This week, Johdy Polk, from Gainesville, Florida, describes her time inside a womens prison, while sharing cutting observations on growing up as a black woman in a white supremacist society.

News of the encounter comes weeks after another woman, Nicole Arteaga, was denied her miscarriage medication at a Walgreens pharmacy in Peoria. Arizona is one of six states that allows pharmacies and pharmacists to refuse to fill a prescription on religious or moral grounds. The pharmacy isn't required to transfer refused prescriptions, but companies may make workplace polices that require referrals. Hall said the prescription marked her first round of hormone therapy.

I just cantand then I just let go and was floating up to the top of the water and I felt the water temperature raise and I jumped up and I saw a big boat and they were throwing out life jackets and I said Jesus just keep me, just keep me so I can get to my kids.

The only way Im getting through this is through God, Tia Coleman said. A lot of people here in the city, Ive had pastors come here and theyve prayed for me and theyll keep me in their thoughts and prayersits the best way Im getting through it.

The FBI is Supposed to Release Documents About the FISA Warrant on a Trump Campaign Official Today "IndyWatch Feed World"

Judicial Watch: The FBI is Supposed to Release Documents About the FISA Warrant on a Trump Campaign Official Today

Posted: Jul 20, 2018 4:00 PM

Source: Town Hall | By Katie Pavlich @KatiePavlich

Government watchdog Judicial Watch expects the FBI to release a series of redacted documents Friday related to the FISA warrant used to surveil former Trump campaign official Carter Page.

"The warrants are controversial because the FISA court was never told that the key information justifying the requests came from a minimally-corroborated dossier that was created by Fusion GPS, a paid agent of the Clinton campaign and Democratic National Committee," Judicial Watch released in a statement. "In April, the DOJ told the court it was processing for potential redaction and release certain FISA materials related to Carter Page, and agreed to a production schedule for responsive records that is to be completed today, July 20, 2018."

The release comes after Judicial Watch filed a Freedom of Information lawsuit in July 2017, when DOJ refused to comply with a FOIA request for the documents.

Judicial Watch may finally get the infamous spy warrants the Obama administration and Deep State conspired with the Clinton campaign used to target then-candidate and now President Trump, Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said about the expected release. It took a year, but the stonewall and cover-up, we hope, begins to end today.

In March, DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz...


Gina Rinehart, Australias richest person, recites I love a sunburnt country "IndyWatch Feed National"


I love a sunburnt country

Gina Rineharts version

I love a sunburnt country to dig my massive mines,
A land of sweeping plains to excavate,
Of ragged mountain ranges to level
Of droughts and flooding rains to wash all the top soil away
I love her far horizons,
I love her jewel-sea full of coal-dust and coal slag
Her beauty and her terror
The wide brown excavated land for me! I love a sunburnt barren country. A land of sweeping plains for me to place my diggers. I love to dynamite vast mines across her vast horizons. To tame her natural beauty and her terror, to frighten all her marsupials to hell, to dispossess her Aboriginal for peanuts. A wide brown dug up vast denuded Australian Outback for me.

Rural round-up "IndyWatch Feed Pacific"

Fonterra faces crisis of confidence Sudesh Kissun:

Former Fonterra director Leonie Guiney says the co-op is facing a crisis of confidence.

She says the dairy co-ops balance sheet is no longer in a position to handle more of the investment culture, while its leadership continues to deny there are any issues with strategic direction.

Guiney, a director for three years, says because the current leadership is overseeing the recruitment of a new chief executive, farmers face more of the same from the co-op. . .

Concerns over Mycoplasma bovis leave farmer confidence in the balance:

Concerns about the impact of Mycoplasma bovis disease on the countrys agricultural sector have seen New Zealand farmer confidence decline over the past quarter, the latest Rabobank Rural Confidence Survey has shown.

While farmer confidence remains at net positive levels, the overall reading dropped to +two per cent in the latest quarter, from +15 per cent in the previous survey.

The latest survey completed last month found the number of farmers expecting the rural economy to improve in the next 12 months had fallen slightly to 26 per cent (from 27 per cent last quarter), while the number expecting the rural economy to worsen rose to 24 per cent (from 12 per cent). A total of 46 per cent were expecting similar conditions (down from 59 per cent). . .

"Government's Already-Dismal Budget Forecast Just Got 106% Worse" "IndyWatch Feed World"

"Government's Already-Dismal Budget 
Forecast Just Got 106% Worse"
by Simon Black

"This week, the Office of Management and Budget released a new report called the Mid-Session Review of the US federal budget. Its something theyre required by law to do periodically review and update the governments budget and track the changes.

The last government budget update was released in February. And according to the February budget, the governments deficit for this fiscal year was going to be a whopping $873 billion. Now theyre projecting to close this fiscal year (which ends on September 30th) with a deficit of $890 billion which means theyre over-budget by just under 2%.

2% is actually pretty good. But heres the problem: when they first unveiled the FY2018 budget in March of last year, they projected the annual deficit to be only $440 billion. So between their initial projections in March 2017, and their current projections in July 2018, this yea...

Catholic Chaplain at Scottish University fired for opposing gay pride "IndyWatch Feed Pacific"

A Scottish university fired its Catholic chaplain this week after the priest held a liturgical service in reparation for the sins of Gay Pride. Fr. Mark Morris conducted a rosary, litany, and benediction at Immaculate Heart of Mary Church on Monday night to atone for the "gross offence to God" of Glasgow Pride and the next day Glasgow Caledonian University (GCU) announced that his work as Catholic chaplain was terminated because his views conflicted with those of the educational institution. "Following due consultation Father Mark Morris will not return to his chaplaincy role at the university in September," said Professor Pamela Gillies, principal and vice-chancellor of GCU, a public university of some 16,000 students.


White Nationalist Senate Nominee Laughed Out Of The Room After Suggesting Trump is Strong On The Russians Addicting Info | The Knowledge You Crave

The state of Virginia, home of the white nationalist Charlottesville hate rally, showed America just how racist they are by nominating Corey Stewart, a bona fide white nationalist, to be their GOP candidate for the United States Senate. Ever since that primary race, Stewart has been runny around defending Donald Trump. In a recent debate appearance with Democratic incumbent Tim Kaine, who also happened to be Hillary Clintons running mate, Stewart tried to say that Trump is strong and tough on Russia. That speech did not go well.

During the debate with Tim Kaine, Stewart said the following:

He was noticeably silent when the Russians shot down a Malaysian airliner when President Obama was in office. He was noticeably silent when the Russians invaded the Crimea when President Obama was in office.

Along with this insane observation came the idea that Kaine was weak on Russia, as was President Obama. Stewart went even further, saying that Trump was some kind of Russia hawk:

We have a president who is standing up to the Russians, and now, Sen. Kaine

Stewart never got to finish his sentence there, because the room erupted in laughter. Everyone, regardless of political affiliation, knows that Trump is Russian President Vladimir Putins lapdog. It is common knowledge. So, for a United States Senate candidate to claim the opposite is the height of hilarity.

Mr. Stewart, a piece of advice if you are going to tell blatant lies, at least make them believable. This one certainly is not. Trump is so deep in Putins pocket and up Putins shirtless ass that he hasnt seen his own head since he rode down that escalator in Trump Tower to announce that he was running for president.

All of this activity is treasonous and disgusting, but as for Corey Stewart perhaps he should just stick to racism. It seems to do much better for him....

The Psychology of Attraction: 6 Ways to Make Yourself More Attractive "IndyWatch Feed World"

Most people base how attractive you are on looks, but to be honest, there is a lot more to it than that! The way you meet someone, the way they speak, and so much more goes into whether or not you find them attractive right off the bat.

Some people are just much more magnetic than others and there are lots of reasons for that. Below I am going to go over some of the things that make a person attractive from a psychological aspect. These are, for the most part, things you might never even think about.

6 Ways to Make Yourself More Attractive:

1. Open up your body language a bit.

If your body language is too closed off and blunt, others are not going to be as drawn to you. You need to open up and let people in. Make eye contact, dont cross your arms or run to your cell phone because you feel awkward. These things will make a huge difference.

2. Make a good first impression 

The first thirty seconds when you meet someone make a huge difference in how they think about you. While it might seem a bit judgy, this is mostly something that happens within our subconscious. Speak up, stand tall, dont hesitate; making a good first impression is important.

3. Dont take yourself too seriously.

Dont cut up too much but also dont be too serious. If you are too serious people will think you dont like them. When someone is willing to cut up a little bit it instantly opens up room for a person to like them at least on a small level. It makes people want to talk to you more.

4. Take proper care of yourself, self-care is crucial.

The way you take care of yourself is everything to the people around you. Personal hygiene is crucial when it comes to attraction. Think about it! Do you like to stand next to someone who has a rough smell? Probably not! Take care of yourself physically, mentally and in all other ways and you will go far.

5. Dont be boring, I know, easier said than done.

It might not be as easy as it sound, but having something about you that says interesting is important. Dont tell someone your whole life story but also dont worry about what you say as much. Just be yourself and see where things go.

6. Pay attention to the person you are speaking to.

Pay attention to the person you are speaking to! Dont be distracted or rude, put DOWN your cell phone! People like when others are...


Justin Sanity- Another of Doug Mesners MANY Aliases- Is Saying My Brother Stephen Wasnt Involved With Sadistic Child Porn "IndyWatch Feed National"

Justin Sanity is yet ANOTHER of Doug Mesners MANY aliases- aka John Kilrush aka Satanic Temples founder Lucien Greaves. He is the one directly working with the part of my family detailed in our email exchange using the alias IEATBABIES.

The homeless family member he is referring to, despite the fact that he refuses to use his name, is my brother Stephen Wesley Shurter.

My brother Stephen was the second photographer convicted child pornagrapher Rusty Nelson spoke about concerning the Franklin Credit scandal in Omaha Nebraska in the 80s.

My brothers claim to fame as a photographer was the official picture of Frank Church- of the Church committee.

My question is why is Mesner so obsessed with trying to discredit me at every turn? What is his motivation?

I learned about Larry King Jrs arrest in Ocean City, Maryland two years after my brothers death simply because it was a CNN news story- confirmed by Ocean Citys local news.

The following statement can be found at:

Satanic child pornography is a fraud

On HoaxteadResearch

This is the UK website that is dedicated in discrediting Satanic ritual abuse- despite the fact that the UK got busted for covering up their own allegations in the 80s- at the same time the very same allegations came out in the US and Australia as well.

They have since refused to investigate that cover up on the grounds that they are historical .

But despite always using different aliases- it sure begs the question, if I am such a liar- why is Mesner so focused on me? If I was such a liar- would it not be self evident? As such- there would be no reason for Mesner to obsessively point it out. People could just see it for themselves.

So what is his REAL motivation? And why the need to do it under every name but his OWN?

More Shurter nonsense
In the Comments section of yesterdays blog, Justin pointed out that once again, David Shurter is, to put it politely, a lying sack of shit.

Hoaxtead Research

David Shurter officially full of shit, yet again, caught lying about the existence of satanic ritual abuse-themed child pornography.

There was indeed a LAWRENCE King lll, from WEST Ocean City, convicted of possessing & distributing child sexual abuse images. In 2011, he was sentenced to 10 years in jail followed by supervised release for life for possession of child pornography.

Kings stash of CSA images was modest in modern terms: law enforcement officials recovered over 600 videos and images documenting the sexual a...

The violent coup in Nicaragua has failed. This does not mean the United States and oligarchs are giving up, but this phase of their effort to remove the government did not succeed.  The coup exposed the alliances who are working with the United States to put in place a neoliberal government that is part of the US empire and serves the interests of the wealthy. People celebrated the failure of the coup but realize work needs to be done to protect the gains of the Sandinista revolution.

Nelson Mandela's legacy hijacked by hypocrite Western leaders like Obama "IndyWatch Feed Africa"

The theft and distortion of Nelson Mandela's legacy by champions of Western liberalism has and continues to be both sickening and obscene to behold. Libya hovers into sharp relief Just how obscene is reflected in the sight of former US President Barack Obama delivering the annual Nelson Mandela lecture in Johannesburg on July 17, the 100th anniversary of the giant of the anti-apartheid struggle's birth. This event has been held annually in South Africa since 2003, organized by the Nelson Mandela Foundation. According to the foundation's website "global leaders have used the lecture to raise topical issues affecting South Africa, Africa and the rest of the world." Instantly arriving on the back of these words, however, given Obama's participation as the event's star act this year, comes anger and a crippling sense of irony - cruel irony - as 'Libya' hovers into sharp relief. Not only was the former US president key in turning the North African country from a functioning state with a 'high human development rank', according to the UN, into a manifestation of hell on earth, but Libya's murdered leader, Muammar Gaddafi, provided significant material aid to Mandela and the anti-apartheid struggle in South Africa when at its most intense. This was way before it achieved the status of cause celebre in the West, when Washington and its allies were doing their utmost to lend legitimacy to the country's brutal apartheid government and state institutions.

France first Western country to join Russia in delivering aid to Syria "IndyWatch Feed World"

Russia and France will send a relief convoy to Syria's Eastern Ghouta, delivering first aid kits and medication to local hospitals, the Russian Foreign Ministry said. The distribution of aid will be supervised by Moscow. The two countries will launch a humanitarian project for Syria to provide care and medicine for people in Eastern Ghouta "who are still in need of medical attention," the Russian Foreign Ministry said, citing a joint communique based on arrangements made by Russian President Vladimir Putin and his French counterpart Emmanuel Macron in May of this year. It will be the first joint humanitarian operation in Syria between Russia and a Western country. The aid deliveries, which will go to local hospitals manned by Syrian Arab Red Crescent, "include first-aid medical equipment, namely emergency and trauma care, for 500 heavily wounded people as well as basic medication to treat 15,000 light injuries."


Mercury Retrograde 2018: The Messenger Of The Gods "IndyWatch Feed World"

Known as the Planet of Communication, Mercury has the ability to impact our thinking, self-expression, and ability to communicate with one another in a major way. When this planet shifts into retrograde movement, what impact does this perceived change in movement have on the planets energy, and how will this influence our lives?

The planet Mercury holds an important role in our lives, as much of what we do requires communication and the ability to express our thoughts for those around us. Its location in the zodiac at any given moment can have an influence over our ability to find the right words, the clarity of our communication with others, the confidence we have in our ability to express ourselves, and our own individual thought processes and rationalization. This powerful planet can even impact the technology that we use for communication including computers and smartphone technology.

However, approximately 3 to 4 times every year this planet makes a shift into what we call retrograde movement. For those of us here on Earth, planetary retrograde refers to a point in time in which it appears a planet is actually moving backward through the sky. Despite how it appears if you are looking through your telescope at home, the planet isnt actually moving backward. This is an illusion created by the movement of Mercury (or any other planet for this matter) in comparison to the movement of the planet Earth. While the actual backward movement is an illusion, astrologists will tell you that the impact it has on the planetary energy is anything but!

Mercury will shift into retrograde movement on July 26th, where it will remain until August 19th. It is important to understand the impact this will have on our daily lives so that we can prepare ourselves adequately for the potential challenges that this time will bring. Mercury retrograde is known as a time of confusion and miscommunication, often leading to difficulty in our relationships including both the close, personal connection with our friends and family, as well as our professional relationships with co-workers, clients and the leadership that we work under.

The first impact many people will notice when it comes to Mercury retrograde is the struggle to make sense of your own thoughts. Situations that were once met with clarity and understanding are now muddled and confusing as if someone has thrown all of your thoughts into a blender. During this time, you will struggle to make sense of your emotions, thoughts, and logic, all of which play an important role in helping you to determine how to react to any given situation. This may lead to poor choices, rash decisions and any...

How To Not Care About What Others Think Of You "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

By Mike Sygula,

Someone once said: To avoid criticism, say nothing, do nothing, and be nothing.

There is no way to avoid criticism from others, you would have to isolate yourself completely. There will always be someone who has a different view than you. This is a difficult one, because most of us get caught in the trap of what others think of us. Naturally, it is important for most of us to get validation from society, which is why social media is such a phenomenon, because we can get this feeling of belonging from others. This aspect of our lives is also a form of jail that we unconsciously lock ourselves in. We often have certain views, or want to do specific things, but are afraid of what others might think of us. This system can paralyse our lives, we will live to please others while suppressing our own uniqueness. Often things that are norms, that we decide to conform to, are not actually healthy for us but because we dont want to be judged or laughed at, we do it anyways.

I must tell you that I struggled with some of this for a long time, I would be afraid to be judged for my views or ideas, and I would be afraid what others would think of me. In recent times, I started caring less and less. I realised that my life is my business and I will be living it on my own terms. For example, Im into some controversial ide...

News Flash! Adderall doesn't make people smarter! "IndyWatch Feed World"

ADHD Drugs Aren't Doing What You Think, Scientists Warn 'Smart Pill' Users About an hour before any organic chemistry final, there's usually a student desperate enough to pop some Adderall, hoping that the "smart pill" they bought on the college black market might help them finally understand what they're doing. As they sit there, waiting for the attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder medication to take effect, that student probably thinks they're about to ride a high to test victory. But research published Thursday in Pharmacy suggests that line of thinking is a bit off. The study authors Lisa Weyandt, Ph.D., a professor of psychology at the University of Rhode Island, and Tara White, Ph.D., an assistant professor of Behavioral and Social Sciences at Brown University, started out investigating the effects of ADHD medications in students that actually have a diagnosable attention deficit disorder. They showed that in these students, there is decreased activity in the areas of the brain controlling "executive functions," which can make it hard for them to stay organized or focus.

Oaxaca City: Communique from CIPO-RFM Demanding Freedom for Political Prisoner Pablo Lpez Alavz and Justice for the Indigenous Communities of Oaxaca "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

The post Oaxaca City: Communique from CIPO-RFM Demanding Freedom for Political Prisoner Pablo Lpez Alavz and Justice for the Indigenous Communities of Oaxaca appeared first on It's Going Down.

This communique comes from the Indigenous Magonista organization CIPO-RFM. Demanding freedom for their political prisoner Pablo Lpez Alavz, the safe return from exile of their compaero Ral Gatica Baustista, and justice more generally for the Indigenous communities of Oaxaca, they have installed an encampment in the Zcalo of Oaxaca city. The timing of the action is strategic, as the government prepares for the Guelaguetza festivala festival of the rich where they commodify and sell the Indigenous culture of Oaxaca to national and international tourists, while the Indigenous communities suffer poverty, marginalization, exploitation and repression.

July 20th, 2018

To the Honest People of Oaxaca
To the National and International Visitors

We are men, women, boys, girls, grandmothers, grandfathers and youth, Indigenous Mixtecas, Zapotecas, Chinantecas, Mixes and Triquis. We form part of the Popular Indigenous Council of Oaxaca Ricardo Flores Magn. Our communities are far away with dirt roads and little transportation meaning five, eight even ten hours to arrive to the capital city of Oaxca. We leave our other compaeros in charge of the goats, chickens or bulls, our houses and our fields to come to the capital of Oaxaca. We do not ask for handouts but that the government of Alejandro Murat, governor of the state, knows that there is an Indigenous man that has spent eight years imprisoned in Etla without having committed a crime. He is in prison because he has spent his entire life defending the forest of his grandfathers, his children and his grandchildren. He is Zapoteco from the community of San Isidro Aloapam.

The illegal loggers that have accused him of a crime are Antorcha Campesina, a paramilitary organization of the government that has a lot of money from selling wood and also has a lot of influence in the PRI government. They have bought judges and witnesses and have made the case very long for our brother Pablo Lpez Alavz. We have legally provided sufficient evidence of his innocence but we are do not have money nor power. Our brother continues imprisoned and they want to declare him guilty. Thus, we are here hungry and cold. Five days have passed without the government wanting to attend to our demands. Surely what worries the government is that the show called Guelaguetza 2018 goes well, where they show off the cult...

SOTT FOCUS: The US Military, Deep State and American Innocence "IndyWatch Feed World"

While only 11% of Americans trust Congress, a whopping 74% have a "great deal or quite a lot of" trust in the military, which also vastly outperforms newspapers (23%) and even the US Supreme Court (37%). Similarly, the CIA and the FBI get an "excellent" rating from 58% of Americans. While reverence for the military is quite common all over the world - perhaps related to evolutionary fear - it behooves us to be a bit more critical and objective. Like the Old Testament characters who never asked Moses for evidence regarding the burning bush, Americans blindly accept all verdicts from the intelligence agencies. The rise of the colossal military and the "Deep State" are new phenomenons in American history, and a dispassionate scrutiny underscores the need for more vigilance on our part.


The Lessons You Were Supposed To Learn Between 2016 And 2018, Based On Your Zodiac Sign "IndyWatch Feed World"

The past few years have been rough for most of us. While some signs have learned their lessons others have not even begun.

Growth and learning are both things we tend to think of as the same but they arent always the same. From 2016 to 2018 we should have learned quite a few life lessons and grown a lot as people, but have we? Below I am going to go over the things each sign should have uncovered within the past couple of years. If you have not yet come to terms with these things, you need to do so before 2019. Moving forward is a lot easier when you are where you need to be.


From 2016-2018 you should have figured out where you stood within the lives of those around you. This time should have truly put things into perspective for you. You were supposed to learn that you are not what this world wants you to be and that is alright! As long as you are the person that you want to be.


From 2016-2018 you really should have decided what you wanted to do in life. You should have made some very big decisions and cut ties with some very toxic people. Moving forward was hard and will continue to be hard but you can do it.


From 2016-2018 you were being pushed to find something that you believed in and whether or not you found it is still unclear. With that being said, as time passes things will begin making more sense. Now is the time that you need to be thinking about what you want to do with yourself and who you want to be. While this is a hard question to ask yourself, it is one that will benefit you greatly in the long run.


From 2016-2018 you should have spent some time reflecting on the mistakes of your past, so you did not make them again. You have either cut ties or intend to cut ties with some friends that are not really friends at all. This past couple of years have made you question yourself a lot but not always in a bad way.


From 2016-2018 you should have learned that not all who seem to have ill intentions do. You should have opened up more, working to really trust the people around you. In the past, you have been far too guarded for your own good.


From 2016-2018 you should have learned that making the hard decisions are worth it in the end. You will very soon understand the meaning of all the things you have been through. While taking things to this level was hard, it will be worth it.


From 2016-2018 you will learn that trying new things is not as scary as it seems. If you have not learned this yet you are starting to. This is something that takes baby steps and can really be a long process. Growth in this way will really help you become wh...

Chinese Tree Shrews are Immune to Capsaicin "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

Tree Shrews Love Hot Peppers Because They Don't Feel the Burn

One of the only traits left to distinguish us from other mammals is a toleranceand in many cases deep, passionate lovefor spicy foods. Richie Hertzberg at National Geographic reports that even that is under assault. A new study reveals that a species of Chinese tree shrew also seeks out hot peppers, and it's probably got a higher tolerance than you.

According to a press release, chili peppers do not grow naturally in the range of Chinese tree shrews, Tupaia belangeri chinensis, but they do feed heavily on Piper boehmeriaefolium, another species of plant that produces copious amounts of capsaicinoids, the compounds that give peppers their kick. Cara Giaimo at Atlas Obscura reports that researchers at the Kunming Institute of Zoology stumbled upon the shrew's tolerance while trying to figure out what the animals like to eat. The shrews, not true shrews at all but relatives of primates, are more genetically similar to humans than other lab animals like mice. So the institute houses about 2,000 of the 10-inch-long mammals for research. As they presented foods to the shrews, they were stunned to find the animals preferred hot peppers, something a self-respecting rabbit or macaque would never eat. (Some other animals, like birds, don't have capsaicinoid receptors, so they can munch peppers all they want.)

To understand the phenomenon, Chinese researchers collected five wild tree shrews and six wild mice to serve as controls. They fed the animals corn pellets spiked with capsaicin. Predictably, the shrews loved the spicy noms while the mice turned away. The researchers also collected bunches of Piper boehmeriaefolium from a local botanical garden. After synthesizing the capsaicin produced by the plant, they injected it into the animals. They then watched how often the animals licked the site, since licking is a response to pain, finding that mice licked the spot more often, a sign that they were irritated by the capsaicin. The shrews hardly licked the spots at all. After that they euthanized the animals to analyze their brains.

Unlike human pepper-heads, who enjoy the tingling on their lips, the slowly building heat and ...

This is a multi-part series that is, in the words of the radio interviewer, mindblowing. David spoke with the host of GLOBAL SPIRITUAL REVOLUTION RADIO & MEDIA GROUP, Bishop Larry Gatters who says they arent a radio show, they are a movement.

David Hawkins and Field McConnell, as crime scene investigators, have been researching the infiltration of the deep state on the planet for many years and they truly do have mindblowing information to share that connects almost as many dots as there are stars in the sky.

In a conspiracy this vast, there are a lot of dots and in Part One, David does a tremendous job of enlightening listeners on a plethora of those dots and how theyre connected. It looks like there are 7 parts, at least at this point. Part One is riveting, and even though Id heard about much of this before, I want the reminders and facts to fill in the gaps.

Ive listened to Abel Danger broadcasts for some time and there are plenty of new pieces of the puzzle here I have never heard anywhere else in this detail. It blew my mind, too.

From one minute to the next you cant anticipate what will come up in the conversation whether mysterious murders, 9/11, Jon Bent Ramsey, SERCO, MH370, German Wings or defense technology. Absolutely top drawer facts and research. David says the Abel Danger team can solve any crime.

A Caterpillar Drive That Actually Looks Like A Caterpillar "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

[Tom Clancy]s The Hunt For Red October is a riveting tale of a high-level Soviet defector, a cunning young intelligence analyst, a chase across the North Atlantic, and a new submarine powered by a secret stealth caterpillar drive. Of course there werent a whole lot of technical details in the book, but the basic idea of this propulsion system was a magnetohydrodynamic drive. Put salt water in a tube, wrap a coil of wire around the tube, run some current through the wire, and the water spits out the back. Yes, this is a real propulsion system, and there was a prototype ferry in Japan that used the technology, but really the whole idea of a caterpillar drive is just a weird footnote in the history of propulsion.

This project for the Hackaday Prize is probably the closest were going to see to a caterpillar drive, and it can do it on a small remote-controlled boat. Instead of forcing water out of the back of a tube with the help of magic pixies, its doing it with a piston. Its a drive for a solar boat race, and if you look at the cutaway view, it does, indeed, look like a caterpillar.

Instead of pushing water through a tube by pushing water through a magnetic field, this drive system is something like a linear motor, moving a piston back and forth. The piston contains a valve, and when the piston moves one way, it sucks water in. When the piston moves in the opposite direction, it pushes water out.

Trump Can't Control Himself But Not Even Depends Will Solve His-- And America's-- Problem "IndyWatch Feed"

Trump's motivation has aways been self-enrichment; it's how he experiencing whatever it is he's ultimately looking for: acceptance, status, approval. And since his earliest days he's never been able to control himself, not for anything. And no one else has been able to control him either, which is why he's been such a loser and why's he's always been such a criminal. Half of America saw saw him for what he's always been and puked, many even deciding to hold their noses and pull the lever for a candidate they weren't especially enthralled with but who was unquestionably the lesser evil. About 3 million fewer voters decided-- for whatever twisted reason (greed for some, hatred of life for others, a warped belief that God wanted him on "the throne" for others)-- decided he would be a better occupant of the Oval Office. So now the U.S. government spends inordinate energy on trying to keep him from doing anything too irreparable and horrfic.

Yesterday former NATO Ambassador Nicholas Burns said aloud what so many patriots have been whispering among themselves, that Trump is unfit for office. Republican patriots, meanwhile are starting to admit how much they miss Obama! Max Boot yesterday:
How I miss Barack Obama.

And I say that as someone who worked to defeat him: I was a foreign policy adviser to John McCain in 2008 and to Mitt Romney in 2012. I criticized Obamas lead from behind foreign policy that resulted in a premature pullout from Iraq and a failure to stop the slaughter in Syria. I thought he was too weak on Iran and too tough on Israel. I feared that Obamacare would be too costly. I fumed that he was too professorial and too indecisive. I was left cold by his arrogance and his cult of personality.

Russia, US to consider joint plan for the return of Syrian refugees "IndyWatch Feed World"

The Russian Defense Ministry says it has sent a proposal to Washington to jointly organize the return of Syrian refugees to their homeland following agreements reached between the Russian and American presidents at their summit this week. The ministry said on July 20 that it sent Washington a proposal for drawing up a joint action plan to bring Syrian refugees living in Jordan, Lebanon, Turkey, and elsewhere back to the places where they lived before Syria's civil war broke out in 2011 -- a goal repeatedly espoused by U.S. President Donald Trump since taking office. "Specific proposals on how work could be organized to ensure that refugees can return home have been sent to the American side," senior ministry official General Mikhail Mizintsev said in a statement. He said the proposals "take into account the agreements reached by the Russian and American presidents during their meeting in Helsinki" on July 16.

He also threatened to quit if President Trump were to override him and insist on indulging Putin's request to have Russian agents interview Michael McFaul, the ambassador to Russia during the Obama administration - after Sarah Huckabee Sanders said the administration was open to the request. Asked by Holt if he'd ever threatened to quit, Wray said, "I'm a low-key understated guy but that should not be mistaken for what my spine is made of -- so I'll just leave it at that." Wray also insisted that he stands by US intelligence agencies' determination that Russia interfered in the US election. He also defended Robert Mueller as a "straight shooter" who is conducting "a professional investigation," Bloomberg reported.


Israel may recognize Assad's control over Southern Syria as tradeoff for expelling Iran "IndyWatch Feed World"

Israel has on multiple occasions accused Iran of deploying troops in the Golan Heights, which have allegedly fired missiles at Israeli territory.

Israel could formally endorse Damascus' control over southern Syria in exchange for Russia negotiating with Iran on pulling back armed groups affiliated with it from the Golan Heights, The Washington Post reported, citing sources in the White House. According to the newspaper, the deal was struck between Russian President Vladimir Putin and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and was later discussed at the summit between US President Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin in Helsinki. The Washington Post's sources claimed that Netanyahu came up with the deal following the Syrian army's recent advances in the southern province of Daara and after realizing that the US won't be putting boots on the ground there, preferring to withdraw from Syria.

Israel launches massive air raid on Gaza, 1 IDF soldier killed "IndyWatch Feed World"

The Israeli military has started a broad air attack on Hamas position in the Gaza Strip, the Israeli Defense Forces said in a statement. It comes after one IDF soldier was killed in serious border clashes on the Gaza border. Later, the IDF also confirmed that one Israeli soldier died after coming under fire on the Gaza border earlier on Friday. The soldier was "severely injured" during operational activity near the southern Gaza strip and then succumbed to his wounds, the IDF statement says. "The IDF views today's attack and the hostile activity orchestrated by Hamas throughout the last months with great severity. Hamas chose to escalate the security situation and will bear the consequences for its actions," the Israeli military stated. The statement said earlier in response to the border clashes the IDF used aircraft and tanks to attack Hamas fighters.


Mattis urges Congress to allow some other countries waivers for Russian sanctions "IndyWatch Feed World"

U.S. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis is calling on Congress to exempt some countries from being penalized by sanctions the United States is imposing on Russia's military. In a statement released on July 20, Mattis said Russia should pay a price for its "aggressive, destabilizing behavior," but the punishment shouldn't apply to U.S. allies or other countries where Washington is cultivating ties. Mattis' move comes amid growing concern about imposing sanctions on India and other Asian countries where Washington is trying to establish closer relations but which have a past history of purchasing arms from Russia. India, in particular, is the world's top defense importer, and has purchased Russian military hardware and expertise for decades. Recently, it has been in talks with Moscow to buy S-400 long-range surface-to-air missile systems. In a letter this week to Senate Armed Services Committee Chairman John McCain, Mattis urged lawmakers who are currently drafting a massive defense policy bill to let the State Department waive sanctions if the United States "has a strategic interest in working with nations that are transitioning to closer ties with America but may still depend on Russian equipment."


7 Signs You Are Actually Dead and Living in Purgatory "IndyWatch Feed World"

Purgatory, for those who might not know is something integral to the Roman Catholic faith. It is quite interesting and all the while confusing, but could you be trapped in it?

If you look up the definition of Purgatory chances are you will get some kind of variation of a condition or place in which the souls of those who pass/die are purified from their sins. This place is not quite Heaven but also not Hell. It is a place in which those who have died go through temporal punishment until they have basically made up for their sins.

Some people are terrified of this idea and others take comfort in it, it all depends on the person and where they are in their lives. However, if you arent Catholic you probably havent heard much about it, if anything. According to OSV, the Churchs doctrine on purgatory reminds everyone that sin does have consequences eternal ones, and that while God might love us all he still makes us pay for the mistakes we have made through our free will. It is considered to be a gift that allows a person to really make up for the things they have done during their time alive. Regardless of your beliefs, I am sure you see this as something that is quite fascinating. I for one love learning about the beliefs of others.

Many people living here on Earth actually think that they and others around them are going through purgatory. They believe that all the things we are going through right now is actually is paying for our sins. Some people have the good life while others are dealing with a lot; everyone has a different story. It doesnt stop there though, others think that this world is a fabrication created within purgatory for the person living his or her life to endure. Could you be stuck in purgatory right now and not even know it?

Below I am going to go over some of the things many consider to be signs that a person might be stuck in purgatory. Whether you find these to be mind-opening or completely ridiculous they are something that will evoke thought on some level. What is this life and where are we headed?

7 Signs You Might Actually Be Dead and Living in Purgatory:

1. You struggle with remembering your past.

If you cannot remember much from your childhood there could be some kind of spiritual reason for that. Maybe you are only remembering what God wants you to remember? Perhaps things are not quite what they seem, maybe that bad memory of yours was given to you for a reason?

2. You are being forced to overcome lots of things time and time again.



S&P affirms Russia's credit rating enabling Moscow to weather additional sanctions "IndyWatch Feed World"

S&P Global has affirmed Russia's BBB long-term and short-term sovereign credit rating, noting that the country's balance of payments and fiscal health should allow it to weather challenges that might arise from future sanctions. In its ratings update on Friday, S&P affirmed Russia's BBB/A3 foreign currency sovereign credit score with a stable outlook and its BBB/A2 local currency score. In its justification for the move, the agency said it took account of Russia's "solid external and public balance sheets coupled with a flexible exchange rate and prudent fiscal framework." These combined factors should be enough for the Russian state to "absorb shocks from possible new international sanctions," the agency, which is the world's leading provider of independent credit ratings, stated. The stable outlook given by the agency to the Russian economy reflects "renewed escalation of geopolitical tensions" that might lead to the tightening of anti-Russian sanctions "against the potential for further strengthening of Russia's public and external finances."


NYT reveals Michael Cohen secretly taped Trump "IndyWatch Feed World"

Cohen is being investigated for potential campaign finance violations, over allegations that he paid off one or more women who claimed to have had affairs with Trump. Although nobody has heard the content of the recording yet, the Times story spurred frenzied speculation among the anti-Trump crowd that this was finally it, the smoking gun they've been looking for, the one thing that will finally overthrow Trump and, uh, make Mike Pence president.

WATCH: Unearthed Videos Show A Cracked Out Mensch In Bizarre YouTube Tutorial Videos While In Parliament "IndyWatch Feed"

Before she was claiming Andrew Breitbart was assassinated by Vladimir Putin, getting sued for smearing Cassandra Fairbanks, and resorting to accusing your humble correspondent of running around with facists (sic), Louise Mensch was smearing something very different, but probably equally toxic, on her face.

In a series of videos posted 5 years ago, appropriately titled unfashionista (you said it, not me, Louise!), Mensch subjects the viewer to a mesmerizing series of advertisements for Why Kids Shouldnt Do Drugs, cleverly described as makeup and dress vlogging. These range from a dress test, which sounds like something either the worst beauty pageant or best escort agency made up; to a video on Even faster dressing video (faster than what? worry not, innocent reader, you shall find out); to a 4 minute 9 second study on early-onset dementia titled Fast basic make up.

The first two of these are bizarre, but also brief: either mercifully or disappointingly so, depending on your enjoyment of cringe content. In the dress test, Mensch struts toward the camera in a hideous, psychedelic ensemble that looks like it was designed by cribbing from the combined nightmares of Gianni Versace and Jackson Pollock. The video only lasts 4 seconds, as if Mensch was particularly anxious to avoid the full catwalk treatment for fear of showing her backside. I wonder why.

The second, the even faster dressing video, is false advertising because Mensch starts the video all but completely dressed. Okay, so two seconds later, Im brushing my hair, Mensch says. As you will see by the end, this woman does not brush her hair in two seconds.

Expert discovered it was possible to delete all projects in the Microsoft Translator Hub "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

Microsoft has addressed a serious vulnerability in the Microsoft Translator Hub that could be exploited to delete any or all the projects hosted by the service.

Microsoft has fixed a severe vulnerability in the Microsoft Translator Hub that could be exploited to delete any or all projects hosted by the service.

The Microsoft Translator Hub empowers businesses and communities to build, train, and deploy customized automatic language translation systems-. 

The vulnerability was discovered by the security expert Haider Mahmood that was searching for bugs on the Translator Hub, he discovered that is was possible to remove a project by manipulating the projectid parameter in an HTTP request.

POST request with no content and parameter in the URL (its kinda weird isnt it?) the projectid parameter in the above request is the ID of the individual project in the database, which in this case is 12839, by observing the above HTTP request, a simple delete project query could be something like:- wrote the expert in a blog post.

The expert also discovered a Cross-Site Request Forgery (CSRF) vulnerability that could be used by an attacker to impersonate a legitimate, logged in user and perform actions on its behalf.

An attacker with the knowledge of the ProjectID of a logged user just needs to trick victims into clicking a specifically crafted URL that performs the delete action on behalf of the user. Another attack scenario sees the attacker including the same URL in a page that once visited by the victim will allow the project to be removed.

Wait a minute, if you take a look at the Request, first thing to notice is there is no CSRF protection. This is prone to CSRF attack. continues the expert. In simple words, CSRF vulnerability allows attacker to impersonate legit logged in user, performing actions on their behalf. Consider this:-

  • Legit user is logged in.
  • Attacker includes the URL in a page. (img tag, iframe, lots of possibilities here)
  • Victim visits the page, above request will be sent from their browser.
  • Requirement is that one should know the ProjectID number of logged in victim.
  • As it has no CSRF projection like antiCSRF...

Free Press Begs for Repression "IndyWatch Feed War"

Washington Post columnist calls for intervention of the deep state

By Andre Damon 
21 July 2018
The media hysteria surrounding US President Donald Trumps meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki has become the occasion for a radical shift to the right in the US ruling elite and media apparatus. Thinly-veiled calls for police state measures and the intervention of intelligence agencies into state affairs that would have been considered beyond the pale just a week ago, are now rife within the editorial pages of US newspapers.
On Friday, Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson published a column entitled God Bless the Deep State, in which he presents the public servants derided by Trumpists as the supposed deep state as an antidote to a treasonous president and an ineffectual Congress.
Robinson never defines precisely what he means by the deep state, but he cites Director of National Intelligence Daniel Coates as among those high-ranking officials who have countered Trumps assertion that Russia did not meddle in the 2016 elections. It is to such intelligence and military officials that the Post columnist is appealing.
The knowledgeable and experienced professionals that make up the state and intelligence bureaucracy are not participants in any kind of dark conspiracy, he writes. Rather they have spent yearsoften decadesmastering the details of foreign and domestic policy.
God bless them. With a supine Congress unwilling to play the role it is assigned by the Constitution, the deep state stands between us and the abyss.


Apple users are returning their new MacBook Pros due to heating issues "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

Apples new MacBook Pro is so hot that it is throttling performance

Apples recently released new MacBook Pro 15-inch models with the powerful Intel Core i9 processor has ran into trouble, as customers are returning their new MacBook Pro due to heating issues. The issue has been specifically observed in the i9 models that cost users $2,800.

The new 15-inch Mac Book Pro that Apple advertises as the fastest and most powerful notebook weve ever made comes with Core i9-8950HK (Core i9) processor and has a base speed of 2.9GHz with turbo boost up to 4.8GHz, 12MB of cache, and an integrated UHD Graphics 630 component.

Apparently, the new Mac Book Pro is having problems meeting its 2.9GHz base clock speeds. It is reported that when the Core i9 processor gets too hot, the processor starts to slow down its performance and can even go lower than the normal operating clock speed if required to prevent heat damage to the chip, which is also called as thermal throttling. The reason behind this is primarily due to the laptops built-in cooling system that cannot match the intense heat that the Core i9 produces.

The problem was first reported by YouTuber Dave Lee of the Dave2D YouTube channel who noticed the overheating of his i9 model led to throttled speeds just after a few seconds of rendering in Adobe Premiere. On the other hand, Lee compared the new MacBook Pro to an Aero 15X laptop which ran the same application with an Intel i7 with a base clock speed of 2.2GHz. The Windows laptop had an average clock speed of 3.1GHz.

The i9 in this laptop cant even maintain the base clock speed. Forget about turbos and all that stuff. It cant even the 2.9GHz base clock. Which is absurd, Lee said.

On a lighter note, Lee put his 2018 MacBook Pro with a Core i9 processor inside a freezer to cool the machine and get better performance out of the new MacBook. On doing this, Adobe Premiere rendering time was reduced to 27 minutes from the initial 40 mins.

This degree of thermal throttling is not acceptable, Lee added. This isnt something Apple should put out on the market and just blindly sell to people because people that purchase this device will never know their laptop is throttling to this degree. This type of thermal throttling affects the end user.

Users took to Reddit to complain and warn other users about the insane heating issue. While Redditor IDoHaveWorkToDo said, I returned my i9 2018 MBP today. It never once hit its advertised turbo speednot even for a fraction of a second. It failed to maintain base clock, another Reddit user....

Dear Charlesbridge: It's not too late! Please do not release BEYOND THE GREEN "IndyWatch Feed 1stpeople"

Saturday, July 18, 2018

Dear Charlesbridge,

It's not too late for you to make a decision about releasing Sharlee Glenn's Beyond the Green. From what I see, it is scheduled to come out on October 2, 2018.

This is an Open Letter, which means that I hope others will read it and think hard before publishing stories about fostering or adoption of Native children. Let me explain why I think you need to take this action.

In Beyond the Green, Sharlee Glenn is telling a story about her own life. When she was a child, her family took in a Ute baby. In her author's note, Glenn tells readers that the baby (Gina) was five months old. She doesn't give us details about how social services selected Glenn's family as a placement for Gina. And she doesn't tell us how Gina left their home to rejoin her Ute mother.

What she does tell readers is that "Before 1978, children like Dori [Dori is the fictional Ute child in Beyond the Green] who were removed from their homes because of neglect or abuse..."

Here's why that sentence is a problem. Some children are removed from their homes because of neglect or abuse. In every demographic in the US, there are parents who are neglectful or abusive of their children. For their safety, those children are appropriately removed from their parents homes. 


Prior to 1978, Native children were being taken from their homes at astonishing rates. Were Native parents worse than others? Of course not. A four year investigation into these removals led Congress to pass the Indian Child Welfare Act.

In her author's note, Glenn tells readers a little bit about the law. I imagine that she thinks her note is helpful...


Those readers will have read 230 pages of a White child's pain. Who causes that pain? ICWA and the Ute mother and grandmother.

The scant information in that author's note is not just thin--it is also incorrect. The most helpful action I can take right now is to ask people to read about the law from people who know what it says.

To start, take a look at the website of the National Indian Child Welfare Association. There, you will read that ICWA's intent was to protect the best interests of Native children, and to promote the stability and security of Indian tribes and families.

You can also read the section on ICWA in Matthew Fletcher's Federal Indian Law (2016). Fletcher is a lawyer, and a law professor at Michigan State University. Because his book is written in a way that I think is accessible to people who aren't trained as lawyers, I highly r...

Evil Russian Novichok: The odorless nerve agent that just so happens to also stink to high heaven "IndyWatch Feed World"

Here is a little primer for the British Government on basic logic. Actions have consequences. What this means is that consequences must stem from actions. And the two must be connected. So far so good? Let me give an example. If I spill boiling hot coffee on my foot, it will cause me pain and possibly even a blister. To flip that over, if I have a blister on my foot, you might ask me, "Oh, how did you get that?" If I told you that I spilt hot coffee on my foot, you would probably wince and say something like, "Ouch, that must have hurt." And the chances are that you would be satisfied with my explanation. Why? Because boiling hot coffee split on the foot is quite capable of causing a blister. But what if, in answer to your question of how I came to get the blister, I told you that I spilt some orange juice on my hand. Would you accept my answer? Would you wince and say, "Ouch, that's gotta hurt"? Would you go away and say to others, "Poor guy, he spilt orange juice on his hand, and now he's got a horrible blister on his foot"? Probably not! Your reaction would probably be more along the lines of, "Huhhh??? You spilt orange juice on your hand, and you got a blister on your foot? What are you talking about?" And the reason for this reaction is that you understand that actions have consequences, and consequences stem from actions. And we all know that whereas spilling boiling hot coffee on the foot might well cause the foot to blister, spilling orange juice on your hand will not have that effect.


League Of The South Goes Russian. "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

Michael Hill speaks with a WWLTV reporter at Confederate monuments rally (Image from WWLTV May 17, 2017 broadcast). Source.

Unsurprisingly, League of the South is attempting to mate with Russia, home of, and saviour of white people. Theres a whole lot to the article, just a bit here.

Amid the controversy over President Trumps recent summit with Russian strongman Vladimir Putin, the neo-Confederate League of the South announced this week that it will soon be introducing a Russian language section to its website.To our Russian friends, a missive on the Leagues website, is signed by Michael Hill, the groups president. An excerpt:

We understand that the Russian people and Southerners are natural allies in blood, culture, and religion. As fellow Whites of northern European extraction, we come from the same general gene pool. As inheritors of the European cultural tradition, we share similar values, customs, and ways of life. And as Christians, we worship the same Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, and our common faith binds us as brothers and sisters.

We Southerners believe in societies based on real, organic factors such as shared blood, culture, and religion, and all that stems naturally from these salient factors in the human experience. As fellow White Christians who are grounded in the sublime traditions of our common European cultural heritage, we believe that the Russian people and the Southern people are natural allies against the destructive and impersonal impulses of globalism.

Religion is organic? Huh. As for these sublime traditions, cmon, lets hear about some of them. Any of them. Provide some details on all this sublimeness. Interestingly enough, the first definition of Sublime is: to cause to pass directly from the solid to the vapor state and condense back to solid form. If one uses that particular definition, yeah, I can buy the sublime tradition nonsense.

Mr. Hill teaches that the defeat of Nazi Germany was an unmitigated disaster for Western Christian civilization. I dont know who...

More US Elites Calling for Sedition Against Trump Admin: For Them and America, It Wont End Well "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

21st Century Wire says

With every passing day, it gets worse. A new psychological disorder has swept through the halls of mainstream media, think tanks and academia. Its called Putin-Trump Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTTSD), and it is spreading rapidly across every inch of the American political landscape.

As with any disorder or impairment, the first step to recovery is admitting you have a problem. In the case of PTTSD, that hasnt happened yet. As a result, many formerly well-qualified journalists and academics have fallen off the edge by willingly joining in with the hysteria.

The latest member of this unfortunate club is Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Award winner, Tim Weiner, who in his recent Reuters piece, figures that because Donald Trump has questioned the official US Intelligence community (IC) conspiracy theory on Russian meddling in US politics, that the President is inviting their revenge. Its almost as if Weiner and other IC court scribes are foreshadowing something similar to that whole Bay of Pigs Thing which is said to have befallen another US President many decades ago. Make no mistake, between then and now, this is the very same Establishment, or Deep State speaking to us, and its not a political admonishment its a threat.

According to Weiner, by not accepting the biased opinion (not based on actual findings, but on opaque sources and methods) and official conspiracy theories, the claim the Russian government played some role in the US 2016 Presidential Election, the President is guilty of treason for what CNN and other media outlets have described this past week as, throwing the US Intel and LEO agencies under the bus.

Granted, its not such a big surprise to see this piece by Weiner after reading his short bio at the footer of this Reuters article which says that all of Weiners establishment awards have been for reporting and writing on American intelligence. Translat...

DEVELOPING: DOJ Releasing Docs Related to FISA Warrants on Carter Page "IndyWatch Feed"

On Friday, conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch announced documents related to the FISA warrants on Trumps former campaign advisor, Carter Page were released by the FBI and were on the way to JW headquarters.

Almost one year ago to the day, Judicial Watch filed a FOIA lawsuit against the DOJ for the following documents:

Copies of all proposed and all final signed FISA applications submitted to the FISC relating to Russian interference in the 2016 election, allegations of collusion between people associated with the Trump campaign and Russia, and any known Trump associates regardless of context;

Copies of all FISC responses to the above-mentioned applications in which the Court notified the FBI or Justice Department that it would not grant the proposed applications or recommended changes. If any such FISC responses were provided orally, rather than in writing, please provide copies of FBI or Justice Department records memorializing or otherwise referencing the relevant FISC responses;

Copies of all FISC orders relating to the above mentioned applications, whether denying the applications and certifications, denying the orders, modifying the orders, granting the orders, or other types of orders.

Obamas Deep State FBI and DOJ obtained a FISA warrant on Carter Page in October of 2016 and three subsequent renewals in order to spy on Trumps campaign and transition team.

Comey, Rosenstein, McCabe and Sally Yates all signed the FISA applications even though Hillarys fraudulent Russia dossier was used as a pretext to obtain the warrants.

Judicial Watch may finally get the infamous spy warrants the Obama administration and Deep State used while conspiring with the Clinton campaign to target then-candidate and now President Trump. It took a year, but the stonewall and cover-up, we hope, begins to end today, Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton said.

Tom Fitton updated and said the docs were Fed Exed.


Ann Coulter: What we really need is for Putin to tell us he's responsible for illegal immigration - then the liberals will finally care "IndyWatch Feed World"

I don't know what Trump said during that two hours when he met privately with Russian President Vladimir Putin, but like so many in the media, I know what I hope he said: Mr. Putin, I need you to publicly admit your complicity in our illegal alien problem. Only if Putin owns up to deploying a vast network of Russian assets to personally direct the movements of millions of illegal aliens across the Sonoran Desert, through dozens of checkpoints and into our country, in fulfillment of his master plan to attack America's financial viability, national security and future prospects, will the media, the Democratic Party and corporate Republicans ever emerge from their stupor and admit that we have a huge problem on our southern border. Illegal immigrants have killed multiple times more Americans than Russia has in its entire history -- or could ever hope to kill, even with a well-placed nuclear bomb. But nothing will be done, unless we can prove Putin is behind it. Our media and government want you to fixate on Russia's annexation of Crimea as the big problem facing our country, hoping you'll forget about the gaping hole on our border. I haven't counted to see how many Americans died as a result of Putin's reacquiring Crimea -- yes, I have! ZERO. Meanwhile, Mexican drug couriers kill more Americans every week than the Communist Soviet Union did when it shot down Korean flight 007 for flying into its airspace, almost starting a nuclear war.

The Trump-Putin Summit and the New US-Russia Protectorate "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

The Trump-Putin Summit was a great move by Trump. US dialogue with Russia can only lead to safer, better world, but the treasonous MSM wants war. The Summit did show the emergence of, essentially, a new US-Russia protectorate Israel.

By Makia Freeman

The Trump-Putin Summit was a momentous event. It is said that the only constant thing in the universe is change. This principle definitely applies to the world of geopolitics right now. In the last few weeks, there have been some major geopolitical shifts which will have ramifications for the immediate future of many nations in the Middle East. Trump continues to disrupt, starting trade wars with China, dissing Europe, reaching out to North Korea and Russia, and shunning Iran. Lets take a look at the latest events, starting with the recent Trump-Putin Summit in Helsinki, Finland, on July 16, 2018.

The Trump-Putin Summit

Predictably, the US Establishment (including current military, intelligence and political figures), Think Tanks, the US Congress and Senate, and the MSM heavily criticized Trump for daring to meet Vladimir Putin and actually talk about the issues faced by the 2 great nuclear superpowers of the world. As usual, whatever the MSM says, its best to reverse it and youll get the closest to the truth or closer to the message of freedom.

The sad fact is Russophobia is a 24/7 industry but its an industry based on complete and utter fabrication. As CNN anchors have admitted (caught on secret camera), its a big nothing burger. It is really quite shocking that the whole fiasco has been dragged on this long with no evidence, but thats a testament to the corrupt nature of the MSM and the lack of critical thinking offered by the majority of the American public. To give you one example of literally hundreds, CFR (Council on Foreign Relations) head Richard Haass said that Russia is a rogue state but Russia is only labeled as such since it does not accept Washingtons preeminence and unilateralism.

From a sane and rational perspective, the world is better and safer when there is dialogue and diplomacy between 2 giant nuclear superpowers, not insults, military threats and war. I take an independent, non-partisan view of political and world affairs, because I align myself with principles rather than parties (or cults of personality). I have occasionally praised and often criticized Trump in the past, and its all to do with how much he is standing up for truth, freedom and peace, not which tribe he belongs to. However, lets be clear: in choosing to meet Putin and begin the dialogue of finding common ground and rebuilding trust, Trump displayed his strength and one of his best moments as president. Yet, this very act...

Will the Trail of Bodies Ever Grow Large Enough to Make Hillary President?

Source: The Common Sense Show

I recently appeared on a radio show in which I received some criticism when I stated that the Clintons have a trail of bodies that have followed them at every turn of their political lives. Of course, no American politician would be involved in something so nefarious as to kill off all of the witnesses that could have ended Bill and Hillarys political career, not to mention would threaten their actual freedom.

In the interview, I was referencing the latest murders in which a New Jersey couple had their house blown up the day before John and Carole Paladino were slated to testify before a grand jury as part of an investigation against Hillary Clinton and the Clinton Foundation. Their murders occured one day before the scheduled Grand Jury testimony. This is similar to what has happened to several key witnesses about the Clintons stealing of $2 billion of UN relief money for Haiti. This is the mindset of someone who will not hesitate to start WW III and put dissenters into FEMA camps.

Australian miners in firing line of PNG resources law shake-up "IndyWatch Feed Pacific"

Mine-pitJEWEL TOPSFIELD | Sydney Morning Herald | Edited extracts

SYDNEY - Major Australian mining companies face the prospect of higher royalties, tough restrictions on fly-in fly-out workers and the potential nationalisation of assets under reforms under consideration by the cash-strapped Papua New Guinea government.

The proposed law changes have sparked warnings from the country's peak mining body that they would pose significant deterrents to investment in future projects and threaten the existing operations of current mines.

Several Australian Securities Exchange listed companies including Newcrest, Highlands Pacific and St Barbara Limited operate mines in PNG, which has significant resources including gas, gold, copper, cobalt and nickel.

The PNG Chamber of Mines and Petroleum says the proposed changes to the Mining Act could clamp down on international fly-in fly-out workers, impose a right for the state to compulsorily acquire mining projects (on commercial terms) after 24 years and result in an increase in royalties.

It says some of the proposed changes which have been under discussion for years would have "severe negative impacts in the immediate and long term on both existing operations and proposed projects".

But the Resource Owners Federation of PNG claims existing laws are primitive, unjust and self-harming, and mining companies continue to reap benefits while keeping the landowners and citizens who own the resources poor.

PNG deputy prime minister Charles Abel told Fairfax Media the government was concerned about a number of factors including increasing the share of benefits to landowners.

Any proposed amendment must address the underlying concerns and keep PNG competitive as an investment destination, he said.

New copper and gold projects including the Newcrest-led Wafi-Golpu mine and PanAust's Frieda River mine are currently awaiting special mining leases from the PNG government.

At an update last month Abel said the PNG government was bringing on Wafi-Golpu, the expansion of a ExxonMobil-operated PNG liquefied natural gas plant and Papua LNG under an improved fiscal template.

The Wafi-Golpu project, a joint venture between Newcrest and Harmony Gold, is a key part of Newcrests future and is considered the companys top growth asset.



Ecuador Reportedly Preparing To Hand Assange To UK In Coming Weeks Or Days "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

By Zero Hedge

Ecuador is preparing to hand over WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange to the UK in coming weeks or even days, RT editor-in-chief Margarita Simonyan reported, as political support and sympathy for Assanges predicament have more or less evaporated since the arrival of an administration that largely views Assange as an inherited problem, and would like more than anything to finally be rid of him. My sources tell [Julian] Assange will be handed over to Britain in the coming weeks or even days, Simonyan wrote in a recent tweet which was reposted by WikiLeaks. Like never before, I wish my sources were wrong, she continued.

Earlier this week, reports surfaced in the UK media that high level talks were happening between UK and Ecuadorian officials to try and remove Assange from the embassy.

Foreign Office Minister Sir Alan Duncan is said to be spearheading the diplomatic effort. Sources close to Assange said he himself was not aware of the talks but believed that America was putting significant pressure on Ecuador, including threatening to block an IMF loan, if he continues to stay at the embassy. The Times report comes just weeks before a visit to the UK by the newly-elected Ecuadorian president, Lenin Moreno, who has labeled Assange a hacker, an inherited problem and a stone in the shoe.

Hostilities to Assanges presence in the embassy have been climbing for weeks. In late March of this year, the Ecuadorian government suspended Assanges communication privileges with the outside world and cutting off his Internet access. That crackdown followed Assanges decision to speak out about the Spanish governments treatment of the Catalan independence movement.

Assange has been holed up in the embassy since 2012. Though Sweden long ago dropped its request that Assange be extradicted, he is still struggling with legal issues in the UK: Earlier this year,...

Piracy Audiences Are Untapped Pools of Wealth "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

Anti-piracy firms often portray copyright infringers as thieves that must be stopped or eradicated.

However, the people at UK firm MUSO have a different take on the piracy problem. With funding from the local Government, theyre offering classic takedown tools, but the company prefers to frame piracy as an opportunity rather than a threat.

This became apparent once again when UK telecoms regulator OFCOM released new figures this week. According to the agency, online subscription services including Netflix and Amazon Prime have, for the first time, overtaken satellite and cable TV.

This shows once again that the Internet is transforming the way people consume media. Moving from linear viewing to an on-demand model is something many torrenters already envisioned more than a decade ago.

Its a landmark change that certainly shouldnt be ignored. This is something Chris Anderson, MUSOs Head of Film & TV, wholeheartedly agrees with, albeit with a major footnote.

Technology has completely transformed the way people are able to watch TV and the days of being tied to a TV schedule are well and truly behind us, with streaming services now officially the preference for the majority of viewers, he says.

The word officially is key because what these figures from Ofcom dont take into account is the many hundreds of thousands of people who are streaming TV in the UK through unlicensed services and sites.

When piracy is taken into account, online streaming overtook traditional TV viewing a long time ago.

Theres a general idea that legitimate streaming services are driving people away from pirate sites. However, thats a misperception. While more and more pirates have a Netflix subscription, piracy remains alive and well.

The idea that services such as Netflix and Amazon Prime have eradicated piracy is a fallacy. Our figures show that global piracy has increased year-on-year, in spite of the rise of streaming services. The UK had 4,776,616,717 total visits to film and TV piracy sites in 2017 alone, Anderson says.

MUSO encourages UK broadcasters not to fixate on the competition from legitimate streaming services alone, but to consider the potential pirate audience as well.

Piracy audiences are one of the great untapped pools of wealth they have extremely high intent to access content but are often simply unable to. Finding ways to acce...


Israel and Hamas reportedly agree to cease fire - IDF immediately breaks agreement, shells 'Hamas outpost' "IndyWatch Feed Africa"

Israel and Hamas have agreed to restore calm in the Gaza Strip, a spokesman for Hamas told Reuters on Saturday. "With Egyptian and United Nations efforts it has been agreed to return to the era of calm between (Israel) and Palestinian factions," Hamas spokesman Fawzi Barhoum was quoted as saying by Reuters. The Jerusalem Post reported on Saturday that Israel and Hamas agreed to cease fire in the Gaza Strip after a day of cross-border hostilities, adding that Palestinian armed groups in the enclave have confirmed to mediators in Egypt their willingness to restore peace. "Egyptian and international efforts have brought a lull in fighting between the occupying forces and Palestinian groups," Barhum said. Earlier in the day, Israeli forces unleashed a series of strikes on more than 40 Hamas military targets in the Gaza Strip. "Israel's military said its aircraft and tanks targeted 40 Hamas posts and that the strikes formed part of a 'wide-scale attack' in response to the border shooting," the IDF's Jonathan Conricus tweeted.


The GoldFish Report No 248: Interview with Emery Smith (Video) "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

Emery Smith III was born on January 28th, 1972 to his parents Emery and Dorothy Smith in Plainfield, New Jersey. At about 8 years of age, he moved to Fort Myers Florida to be raised on a self-sustainable farm with a fascination for the universe and a fixation on science, particularly aerospace and biologics. Excelling in all of his classes at such a young age, Emery quickly advanced his education and pursued his dream of joining the United States Airforce.

By age 10, Emery was awarded Lee Countys Sharpest Shooter by the Lee County Sheriffs Department, in which he carried the title on into the military. In 1986, Emery volunteered to join Civil Air Patrol, an auxiliary of the air force, where he worked on a vast array of life saving missions. He obtained his single engine pilots license shortly thereafter, and became an EMT by age 16. During this time. Emery participated in all extracurricular activities that would advance his rank, knowledge and experience within the military. His time put into ARMY ROTC, the Lee Countys sheriff exlporers unit, and other advanced training courses paid off, and Emery quickly succeeded with accomplishing his goals.

In 1990, Emery became active duty in the USAF and was stationed at Lackland AFB in San Antonio, Texas. From there, he went on to surgical tech training at Sheppard AFB in Wichita Falls, Texas, and then on to England AFB in the 23rd Tactical Fighter Wing, located in Alexandria Louisiana, where he worked as a surgical technologist and surgical first assist. Finally, Emery was transferred to Kirtland AFB in Albuquerque, New Mexico, where he worked on and off base at UNM Hospital as a surgical assist and as a paramedic. He was certified in surgical apprenticeship, and also worked as a HAZMAT instructor, EMT, terrorist negotiation coordinator, flight medic specialist, surgical technologist, expert marksman, chemical warfare specialist, biotech warfare specialist, and lead DECON response units, among other positions.

These positions allowed him to work under various specialized surgeons, where each individual taught him multiple procedures and various ways on how to perform them. This uncommonly vast and varying knowledge attained by Emery became highly valuable to those searching for an assistant with such skills in the underground compartmentalized laboratories.

This lead Emery to be offered a moon lighting job at both Sandia National Laboratory facilities and Los Alamos National Laboratory facilities, and eventually facilities all over the world, due to the varying surgical experience and intense knowledge of biologics and genetics he gathered during his time working and studying on base, in the field, and at the hospitals.

While he has worked at facilities around the world, Emery spent most of his time at Sandia & Los Alamos, where his work focused in the classified genetic rese...


A Time of Hope for Ethiopia "IndyWatch Feed War"

As a result of the protest campaign that started in 2015, political change is at last underway in Ethiopia, and a feeling of optimism is beginning to pervade the country. The new Prime Minister, Abiy Ahmed, deserves much credit, but it was the actions of thousands of people who took to the streets calling for change that has forced the government to act. All those who marched in defiance of the ruling party displayed great courage and relentless determination. They risked their lives and liberty in standing up to tyranny; they are the heroes of the day, and we should salute them all.

Despite the governments repeated claims to the contrary, Ethiopia has never known democracy. Under the ruling EPRDF a democratic farce took place every five years when the pretence of a general election was staged, primarily for the benefit of the regimes main donors, America, Britain and the European Union. The ruling party has been in office for 27 painful years; they control the judiciary as well as the media and the Internet, and have virtually outlawed political dissent; the regime has murdered, intimidated and tortured, ruling the country through fear.

There are positive signs that those dark days are now coming to an end and that the changes longed for by so many, for so long, are now a real possibility. The time of tyrants is over, and despite the fact that repressive regimes continue to exist, their days are numbered. A new energy is sweeping the world engendering Principles of Goodness and strengthening the will of the people. The values of the time are unifying ideals: cooperation, tolerance and understanding, sharing, freedom and justice, and with every day that passes these values grow in strength.

Over the last 40 years of so an unprecedented worldwide protest movement has evolved; throughout the world people have been taking to the streets demanding freedom and an end to injustice and suppression. The people of Ethiopia have responded whole-heartedly to this global movement and the country now stands at the beginning of a new chapter in its history.

The seed of democracy is being firmly planted; justice and the observation of universally enshrined freedoms are the cry of the people: Freedom from fear, freedom of expression, freedom of the media and freedom of assembly. Political and cultural pluralism, a politically independent judiciary, police and security services that protect the people rather than terrorizing them, and the repealing of unjust laws, such as The Anti Terrorism Proclamation and the Charities and Societies Proclamation. These steps are fundamental and, if the government is serious about initiating reforms, should be taken without delay.

Democracy, though, is not simply a means of governance and the observance of universally agreed human rights; democracy is a social contract of action between the people and th...

French mayor fined for refusing mosque construction permit, given deadline to grant it "IndyWatch Feed World"

Mantes-la-Ville's mayor, Cyril Nauth, was fined on July 11th for refusing to grant a construction permit for a mosque, newspaper Le Parisien reports. On Wesneday, Cyril Nauth was not only heavily hit with a 3,000 Euros fine, but also given an extension of one month for him to accept the permit. If the mayor doesn't comply with the Versaille's administrative judges, he'll get a fine of 150 Euros everyday past that deadline. In a statement, the Muslims Association of South Mantes, through their president Abdelaziz El Jaouhari, welcomed the decision: "For dogmatic reasons, the mayor has bogged down the city in lengthy and expensive procedures by trampling on basic rules of law. The [...] thousands of euros spent by the mayor in these procedures could have been invested in services to the population that the city badly needs. With determination we will continue to preserve co-existence of peoples and to fight against all extremism regardless of where they come from."

Who owns the moon? A space lawyer answers "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

Most likely, this is the best-known picture of a flag ever taken: Buzz Aldrin standing next to the first U.S. flag planted on the Moon. For those who knew their world history, it also rang some alarm bells. Only less than a century ago, back on Earth, planting a national flag in another part of the world still amounted to claiming that territory for the fatherland. Did the Stars and Stripes on the moon signify the establishment of an American colony?

When people hear for the first time that I am a lawyer practicing and teaching something called , the question they ask most frequently, often with a big smile or a twinkle in the eye, is: So tell me, who owns the moon?

Of course, claiming new national territories had been very much a European habit, applied to non-European parts of the world. In particular the Portuguese, the Spanish, the Dutch, the French and the English created huge colonial empires. But while their attitude was very Europe-centric, the legal notion that planting a flag was an act of establishing sovereignty quickly stuck and became accepted worldwide as part and parcel of the law of nations.


Italian interior minister schools deluded US journalist on Crimea unification and Ukraine's foreign backed coup - UPDATE "IndyWatch Feed World"

Italian Interior Minister and Deputy Prime Minister Matteo Salvini said that Crimea "legitimately" belongs to Russia as he argued with a US journalist who called the 2014 referendum held on the peninsula "fake." When Washington Post journalist Lally Weymouth confronted Salvini with the apparently provocative question of whether or not he supports Russia's "annexation" of Crimea, Salvini pointed out that there was actually a referendum, prompting her to claim it was "fake." In response, Salvini noted that it was just the journalist's subjective "point of view." "There was a referendum, and 90 percent of the people voted for the return of Crimea to the Russian Federation," the Italian interior minister said.

On Front Lines of Climate Change, Baltimore Lawsuit Aims to Hold 26 Fossil Fuel Companies Accountable

From an Article by Jessica Corbett, Common Dreams, July 20, 2018

These oil and gas companies knew for decades that their products would harm communities like ours.

Baltimore, Maryland on Friday became the latest city to file suit against major oil and gas companies, aiming to hold them accountable for the potentially catastrophic damage that the global climate crisiswhich is largely the result of burning fossil fuelsis increasingly inflicting on coastal communities the world over.

Were now on the front lines of climate change because melting ice caps, more frequent heat waves, extreme storms, and other climate consequences caused by fossil fuel companies are threatening our city and imposing real costs on our taxpayers. Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh

Sick of Student Loans? Some Schools Offer to Take Part of Future Earnings Instead "IndyWatch Feed World"

Norwich University will offer its students an income share agreement as an alternative to traditional repayment of education-related debt. The agreements will allow students to forgo loans and instead pay a portion of their future earnings over a set period.

The military university hails the program, which it announced earlier this week, as an initiative aimed at improving affordability, student retention, and degree completion. Lauren Wobby, the schools chief financial officer and treasurer, said, Norwich University is committed to offering this new way to help pay for college in a way that aligns incentives and helps reduce financial barriers to degree completion.

To offer the payment option, Norwich University has partnered with Vemo Education, which has provided an estimated $23 million to fund income share agreements at other colleges.

Vemo Education touts its funding project as a way to increase upward social mobility. Co-founder and CEO of Vemo Education Tonio DeSorrento commented, In many cases, the college degree remains a prerequisite for social and economic mobilitybut rising costs and questions about affordability often lead students to underinvest in their higher education or not finish their degree program. Social mobility may not be the only goal for institutions. When Purdue introduced ISAs [income share agreements], the university saw a monetary return of 5 to 7 percent. Vemo has since partnered with Purdue.

Some in the academic community are wary of the payment system, expressing doubt that it will make higher education substantially more affordable.

Im very concerned if we are saying its a positive that on top of people coming out with federal student loans to repay, were going to take another bite out of their income by adding an ISA obligation, Jessica Thompson, policy and research director at the Institute for College Access & Success, told The Washington Post in January after Point Loma Nazarene University instituted a similar repayment system.

The Dark Truth Behind The Story Of The James Gunn Disney Firing "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

By DCWhispers

51-year-old James Gunn is a highly successful Hollywood director, most notably for his involvement in the multi-billion dollar Marvel series franchise. Today he was fired by Disney for a multitude of messages Disney execs deemed highly offensive. The gist of those messages involved Gunns seeming support of pedophilia. Those defending the director claim Gunn was joking. Those opposed to his views say he minimized/ridiculed/promoted what is a very serious issue  particularly in Hollywood where abuses against children are believed to be far more serious than the even the genesis for the #MeToo movement. While #MeToo continues to garner considerable attention, the claims of widespread pedophilia in the entertainment industry remain largely ignored.

Was Mr. Gunn actually guilty of promoting pedophilia? Who knows. What is known is that there are those in Hollywood with the answers answers that involve far more than just him. The subject matter has been broached, carefully, by some. Those examples might have even been a cry for help or an admission of guilt. You decide

EU, Japan Sign Historic Trade Agreement to Reshape Global Economic Map "IndyWatch Feed Pacific"

Written by Peter Korzun; Originally appeared on

A new era for the EU and Japan, the champions of global free trade and multilateral agreements, has begun. A landmark event that will change the global economic landscape has taken place. The EU and Japan signed a massive free trade deal at the 25th EU-Japan Summit on July 17 in response to recent geopolitical developments. The parties sent what they are calling a clear message against protectionism. The Economic Partnership Agreement (EPA) will provide a powerful impetus to the economic growth of its signatories and also set the standards for their other trading partners.

The EPA creates a large free-trade area (FTA) with no tariffs whatsoever, encompassing almost a third of the worlds GDP and 600 million people. Now that the deal has been signed, it will also apply to the UK during the two-year Brexit transition period that will begin in March 2019.

The mega-trade deal will affect 40% of global trade (up to 70% in high-tech sectors). A drop in prices is likely to boost spending and spur growth. The European Union annually exports more than $100bn (75bn) in goods and services to Japan. EU agricultural exports could increase by up to 180%.

The Japanese computer, electronic, and automobile industries are all expected to benefit. The prices for Japanese cars will decline in Europe, as import tariffs are gradually reduced to zero. The EPA includes modern provisions that apply to property rights (IPR), labor protections, a procedure for settling accounts, and a commitment to the Paris Agreement on Climate Change the one rejected by the United States.

The news about the signing of the EPA contrasts starkly with the tariff wars launched by Washington. On July 15, President Trump called the EU a foe that takes advantage of the US in trade. The United States rattled international markets by threatening a trade war with China. Washington imposed 25% tariffs on $34 billion of Chinese goods, and Beijing was quick to retaliate. Henceforth EU officials and Japan will present a united front against US tariffs on steel and aluminum. In turn, China is offering to join forces with the EU in an effort to stand up to the US trade policy.

The United States had been in talks with Japan and other Asia-Pacific countries on t...


China offended by Larry Kudlow's "bogus" accusations that they are stalling trade talks "IndyWatch Feed World"

While China has so far failed to list explicitly just how it will respond to Trump's proposed tariffs on $200BN in additional Chinese imports, it has been quite clear that it is happy to go from trade war to currency war with its ongoing devaluation of the Yuan, which overnight lost another 550 pips, sliding to 6.80 against the dollar, the lowest level since July 2017. And as it turns out, a big reason for the overnight plunge in the Chinese currency are Wednesday's comments by Larry Kudlow, Trump's chief economic advisor, who blamed President Xi Jinping for stalled trade talks when he told CNBC that he believed lower-ranking Chinese officials want a deal, including Xi's senior economic adviser Liu He, but that Xi has refused to make changes to China's technology transfer and other trade policies, accusing Xi of "holding the game up."

Hey, warum sind die Mieten in Mnchen eigentlich so ... "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

Hey, warum sind die Mieten in Mnchen eigentlich so hoch?

Weil das Finanzamt Leute abstraft, die weniger hohe Mieten verlangen!

ber eine Million Mark, dann Euro, steckte Hausbesitzer Fischer in die Modernisierung seines Eigentums. 20 Prozent bernahm das Denkmalschutzamt. Kleinere Reparaturen machen die Mieter. Viele Nachbarn schrauben ihre Mietforderungen auf bis zu 40 Euro pro Quadratmeter hoch, der Vermieter-Rebell bleibt jedoch bei 12 Euro:

"Wenn bei mir ein Kind geboren worden ist, dann habe ich die Miete um 50 Euro, frher waren es 100 Mark, reduziert. Da habe ich schon Schwierigkeiten gekriegt. Der Finanzbeamte hat gesagt, ich kriege eine Anzeige, da habe ich gesagt, ja da freue ich mich schon drauf."

Welches Interesse hat denn der Staat daran, die Mieten hochzutreiben, fragt ihr euch jetzt vielleicht? Nun, ganz einfach!
An den exorbitanten Mieterhhungen in Mnchen verdiene vor allem der Staat. Bezahlbares Wohnen sei aus steuerlicher Sicht gar nicht erwnscht:

"Wir haben die Einnahmen des Fiskus aus den Mnchner Mieten mal hochgerechnet. Wir kommen hier auf eine Milliarde Euro pro Jahr, die der Fiskus allein von den Mnchner Wohnungsvermietern einnimmt."

Tweets of his from 2008 and 2009 were discovered by the conservative site the Daily Caller that made light of rape, pedophilia, 9/11 and the Holocaust.
Falls ihr die Tweets sehen wollt: Hier sind Screenshots. Das ist auch die Site mit den ursprnglichen Vorwrfen. Die Site gehrt Ben Shapiro, einem Rechtsauen-Kommentator, von dem es auch diverse Youtube-Videos gibt, u.a. mit Dave Rubin, und krzlich war er auch bei Bill Maher zu Besuch. Ich finde den sehr schwer zu ertragen, alleine schon vom Redestil, noch bevor man die Inhalte bewertet, die er so von sich gibt.

Ich halte die Tweets fr keinen Grund, jemanden zu feuern. Da wird auf typischen Standup-Bhnen deutlich krasseres Zeug gesagt (Rape Jokes gab es von Dave Chapelle, Chris Rock, Daniel Tosh, Louis CK, Doug Stanhope, das ist das Who is Who der Stand-Up Comedy in den USA; wenn ihr krasses Zeug nicht aushaltet, guckt nichts von Doug Stanhope). Ich bin kein Freund von Rape Jokes, aber sie haben ihre Berechtigung, wenn man Comedy als Mechanismus zum Verarbeiten der bel der Welt betrachtet, wie es Patton Oswald in Teil 3 dieses Essays tut.

Die andere Lektion dieser Geschichte ist, dass die Rechten jetzt systematisch die fiesen Tweets der Linken gegen sie verwendet, in genau der Art, wie vorher die Linken die Tweets der Rechten gegen sie verwendet haben.

Htte uns doch nur jemand gewarnt!!1!

Update: Oh, hab ich verwechselt, Ben Shapiro betreibt Daily Wire, nicht Daily Caller. Und interessanterweise hat Shapiro auf seiner Site ein Op-Ed, das sagt, Gunn htte nicht gefeuert werden drfen.


(Why) The Future is a Choice Between Two Socialisms "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

Why Capitalisms Collapse Feels Weirdly a Lot Like Communisms

Heres a funny observation. Soviet style communism was always marked by chronic, predictable shortages. Especially for luxuries. The line for jeans, sweaters, boomboxes, and TVs, which stretched around the block, always leaving people empty-handedwhile decadent Westerners simply trundled down to the store and bought them by the truckload.

But capitalism is collapsing now in a weirdly similar way. Its marked by chronic, persistent shortages for just the opposite. Not for luxuriesbut for lifes basic necessities. Medicine, hospitals, education, good schools, income, decent media, a home to live, income, jobs. Even potable drinking water (see: Flint) and decent food. In America, for exampletheres no guarantee youll be able to get these things, because theyre always in short supply. In fact, life seems to be designed precisely so that some people must always be at threat of going without them. How ironic, when you think about it, nocapitalism and communism both failing, in mirror images of each other? Why is that? And what does it mean?

It suggests to me that the future is a choice between two socialisms. Or it wont be much of a future at all. The good kind of socialismand the bad kind. And thats because capitalism has proven to be a ruinous failure as the sole (or highest) organizing principle of a societywhich is what its been for the last thirty years or so now. Ill make my caseand you judge if it carries any water.

Unless you believe in cosmic coincidences, the reason that ultranationalist movements have popped up, seemingly overnight, is straightforward: economies are stagnant and so peoples lives arent improving, . But what does that really mean? It means life has become governed by artificial scarcity. Middle and working classes are on the brinkbecause capitalism makes things artificially scarce, so that it can maximize profits. What things? Healthcare. Affordable education. A mortgage an average person can pay off in a lifetime. Decent jobs themselves. For young people, marriage, having kids, and homes of their own. When insulin costs thousands, though we all know it can and should cost penniesthats artificial scarcity.

And yet those are the lives the middle and working classes live noweverything is artificially, not really scarce. Societies throw out tons of food. Newly built homes go to w...

Trump SCOTUS Nominee Kavanaugh One Step Closer to Confirmation Hearing With New Filing "IndyWatch Feed"

President Trumps SCOTUS nominee, Brett Kavanaugh, returned a 110-page questionnaire along with thousands of pages of documents to the Senate Judiciary Committee late Friday evening.

Brett Kavanaugh said in his response to the Senate Judiciary Committee that no one from the Trump administration asked him about any currently pending or specific case, legal issue, or question in a manner that could reasonably be interpreted as seeking any express or implied assurances concerning your position on such case, issue, or question.

Kavanaugh previously served 12 years on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit which means he is vetted, however, the Democrats are still trying to delay his confirmation using several different strategies.

Kavanaugh also turned over speeches, interviews, hundreds of pages of published writings, and past court filings, Politico reported.

Kavanaugh wrote in his questionnaire that White House counsel Don McGahn first discussed a potential nomination with him late on June 27, the same day that Justice Anthony Kennedy officially announced a retirement from the Supreme Court. On July 8, the day before Trump named Kavanaugh, the nominee wrote that he spoke with the president in the morning and met that evening with the president and First Lady Melania Trump.

During that meeting, the President offered me the nomination, and I accepted, Kavanaugh wrote.

Senate Judiciary Chairman, Chuck Grassley (R-IA) was pleased with Kavanaughs diligent and timely response.

Rosenstein and the Democrats are desperately trying to delay Kavanaughs confirmation....


Former CIA Spook Claims Phones Tapped, Home Invaded After Clinton Criticism "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

One of the most obvious reasons for the failure of Hillary Clinton to win the presidency in 2016 stems from the former Secretary of States longstanding reputation as one of the most corrupt and crooked politicians of our modern era.

By Andrew West

Clinton, who rose to power at her husbands side, has long been on the shadowy, clandestine side of American political theater, having founded The Clinton Foundation as a charitable organization through which the former First Lady could funnel illicit funds and wield power from behind the virtue signaling shield of philanthropy.  Of course, it only took a few decades for the internet and some intrepid insiders at the democratic party to expose the surly and scandalous witch, effectively derailing her hopes of every working on The Beltway again.

Of course, we mustnt ever forget that Hillary Clinton is also an incredibly powerful and dangerous woman, who has outlived nearly every one of the enemies that she has made in her turbulent career in public office.

Now, a tweet by one former CIA counterterrorism expert claims that his criticism of Hillary Clinton has caused him to be the victim of terrifying and unheard of harassment, possibly at the hands of the former Secretary of States goons.

Shipps comments just weeks after the death of Anthony Bourdain, who had openly spoken about his own harrowing experiences being harassed by the Clintons for the exposure he caused them.  Bourdains death comes nearly a year to the day after DNC staffer Seth Rich was murdered.

Richs murder was considered a botched robbery by D.C. police, but many have indicated that Richs possible connection to Wikileaks made him a target for those politically effected by the websites release of emails from within the Hillary Clinton 2016 campaign.

Tony Podesta Offered Immunity To Testify Against Paul Manafort: Report "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

By Zero Hedge

Tony Podesta, the brother of Clinton campaign manager John Podesta, has reportedly been offered immunity by special counsel Robert Mueller to testify against former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort, according to Foxs Tucker Carlson.

Manafort and Podesta both made millions together as unregistered agents on a pro-Russia project in Ukraine. While Podesta had the uncanny foresight to retroactively file as a foreign agent last April, Manafort did not, and is currently on trial for his failure to register under the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA) created decades ago to curb Nazi propaganda in the US, as part of a 12-count indictment handed down last October.

In other words, for a near identical crime, Bill and Hillarys friend could escape and emerge completely unscathed while Paul Manafort may rot in jail. Only one of them made the mistake of chairing Donald Trumps presidential campaign, said Carlson.

One week after Mueller announced he was targeting Manafort and an unnamed Company B in October, Podesta resigned from his position as chairman of the Podesta Group, which he co-founded with his brother Tony in 1988.

Manafort and Podesta worked with the Pro-Russia European Centre for a Modern Ukraine (E...

SpaceX CEO Elon Musk claims that the Block 5s wont need any major refurbishment for the first 10 flights or so, and could potentially fly up to 100 times before being retired. The companys ultimate goal is to turn these vehicles around in just 24 hours after landing. The fastest SpaceX has been able to manage so far is two and a half months.


Astronomers have found a new crop of moons around Jupiter, and one of them is a weirdo "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

Up to 79 moons now.

Ten more moons have been confirmed to orbit around Jupiter, bringing the planets total known satellite count to 79. Thats the highest number of moons of any planet in the Solar System. And these newly discovered space rocks are giving astronomers insight as to why the Jupiter system looks like it does today.

Astronomers at Carnegie Institution for Science first found these moons in March 2017, along with two others that were already confirmed in June of last year. The team initially found all 12 moons using the Blanco 4-meter telescope in Chile, though finding these objects wasnt their main goal. Instead, they were searching for incredibly distant small objects or even planets that might be lurking in our Solar System beyond Pluto. But as they searched for these fringe space rocks, they decided to take a peek at what might be lurking around Jupiter at the same time. Now, the moons they found have been observed multiple times, and their exact orbits have been submitted for approval from the International Astronomical Union, which officially recognizes celestial bodies.

Additional Explanation About 18 USC 911

Source: Paul Stramer | By Anna Von Reitz

To explain to those who didn't understand what I was talking about when I referenced "More Ammo in the Territorial United States Code"-----here is what 18 USC 911 actually says:

18 USC 911

Whoever falsely and willfully represents himself to be a citizen of the United States shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both.

(June 25, 1948, ch. 645, 62 Stat. 742; Pub. L. 103322, title XXXIII, 330016(1)(H), Sept. 13, 1994, 108 Stat. 2147.)

Now, as part of reclaiming your birthright status, you have to face the fact that you have made some mistakes. You have claimed to be a "US citizen" more than once, and now that someone finally explained that they aren't talking about the same "US" that you are, you realize that you were never a "citizen" of the Territorial or Municipal United States, either.

Now that the deceitful language is exposed, it's clear as day that you weren't born in and don't desire to be in the same political status as someone from Puerto Rico, right?




Baltimore Sues Fossil Fuel Companies Over Climate Change "IndyWatch Feed World"

Baltimore, Maryland, on Friday became the latest city to file suit against major oil and gas companies, aiming to hold them accountable for the potentially catastrophic damage that the global climate crisiswhich is largely the result of burning fossil fuelsis increasingly inflicting on coastal communities the world over.

In fact, they had a responsibility to do both, but they didnt, and thats why we are taking them to court, Davis added. Baltimores residents, workers, and businesses shouldnt have to pay for the damage knowingly caused by these companies.

Filed on Friday in the states Circuit Court for Baltimore City, the lawsuit  names 26 companiesincluding BP, Chevron, ConocoPhillips, and ExxonMobil, and Royal Dutch Shellsome of which have been common targets in other climate liability suits filed across the country.

The citys suit outlines how these companies have misled the public about the risks of their products and reaped enormous profits, all while pouring greenhouse gases into the Earths atmosphere that have resulted in global warming, rising atmospheric and ocean temperatures, ocean acidification, melting polar ice caps and glaciers, more extreme and volatile weather, and sea level rise.

Baltimore is the East Coasts fifth-largest city, and features some 60 miles of waterfront. Lisa Anne Hamilton of the Center for International Environmental Law (CIEL) warned that the climate crisis poses increasingly urgent and calamitous risks to Baltimore residents, noting that in just the past two years, the Baltimore area was hit by two catastrophic once in a 1,000 year storms.

Read the complete article be Martin Eyserink here

LIHIR ISLANDIn a small village 15,000 kilometers from home, Oriol Mitj jumped out of a white van one early May afternoon and started to look at people's legs.

"Any children with ulcers here?" he asked in Tok Pisin. "Can we see them?"

Soon, a young woman pushed a crying boy about five years old toward Mitj. The boy was barefoot; he had a mop of blond curly hair, like most kids here, and was dressed only in dirty blue shorts.

A group of villagers, mostly women and children, had gathered to watch. "What's his name?" Mitj asked as he sat down on a low wooden bench, pulled on disposable gloves, and gestured to the sobbing kid to come sit on his right leg. "Jeremiah," his mother said.

Mitj, 38, a physician-scientist from Spain with earnest eyes and a friendly smile, has a way of putting kids at ease. As Jeremiah calmed down and began to wipe the tears from his eyes, Mitj took a close look at his legs.

On each, the boy had a glistening pink ulcer the size of a coin, with slightly raised edges. Nearby were whitish, warty splotches. Mitj also checked Jeremiah's arms, hands, and the soles of his feet; they looked fine.

Jeremiah's mother didn't seem overly concerned. The ulcers were common, and she said she hadn't taken the child to a clinic. "Does Jeremiah play with the other kids?" Mitj asked. She nodded. "Does he go to school?" No, she saidnot yet.

The ulcers and splotches, or papilloma, are symptoms of a tropical skin disease called yaws, Mitj's professional and personal obsession.

Trump poised to take control of the Federal Reserve "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

By Richard X. Bove

  • President Trump sharply criticized the Federal Reserve this week, saying interest rate increases are hurting the economy.
  • Trump will have the opportunity to fashion the central bank in the image he would like as he has four vacancies to fill on the board of governors.
  • The result could be a more politicized Fed.

President Donald Trump has multiple reasons as to why he should take control of the Federal Reserve. He will do so both because he can and because his broader policies argue that he should do so. The president is anti-overregulating American industry. The Fed is a leader in pushing stringent regulation on the nation. By raising interest rates and stopping the growth in the money supply it stands in the way of further growth in the American economy.

First, He Can

The Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve is required to have seven members. It has three. Two of the current governors were put into their position by President Trump. Two more have been nominated by the president and are awaiting confirmation by the Senate. After these two are put on the Feds board, the president will then nominate two more to follow them. In essence, it is possible that six of the seven Board members will be put in place by Trump.

The Federal Open Market Committee has 12 members and sets the nations monetary policy. Seven of the 12 are the members of the Board of Governors. Five additional are Federal Reserve district bank presidents. Other than the head of the Fed bank in New York, who was nominated by the president, the other four can only take their positions as district bank presidents if the board in Washington agrees to their hiring. One of these, the Fed Bank president in Minneapolis, Neel Kashkari, is already arguing for no further rate increases.

Second, Regulation

Following the passage of the Dodd Frank Act in July 2010, the Fed was given enormous power to regulate the banking industry. It moved quickly to implement a number of new rules. The Fed set up a system that would penalize banks that failed to obey its new rules. These rules included setting limits as to how big an individual bank could be; how much money the banks had to invest in fed funds and Treasurys...

Whole Fruit Fly Brain Imaged With Nanoscopic Detail "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

3D image reveals hidden neurons in fruit-fly brain

Scientists have produced a 3D image of a fruit fly's brain that's so detailed, researchers can trace connections between neurons across the entire organ.

Fruit flies (Drosophila melanogaster) display a suite of complex behaviours, including courtship dances and learning. But understanding the neural networks that drive these behaviours remains a challenge. The data from this image, published on 19 July in Cell, resolved the insect's brain down to individual cells revealing some neurons that have never been seen before. This offers scientists a new tool with which to study fruit-fly behaviour and allows them to compare the insects' neural networks with that of other species.

Researchers cut a fly's brain roughly the size of a poppy seed into more than 7,000 slices and shot a beam of electrons through the sample. A high-speed camera captured high-resolution pictures of each slice a process never used before generating roughly 21 million images that the team stitched together using custom computer software.

How to navigate the white water of these turbulent times "IndyWatch Feed War"

by George Lakey

The latest lurch in global statecraft Trumps dissing NATO allies then playing footsie with Vladimir Putin leaves many scrambling to maintain some balance. Republicans for whom the enemy status of Russia is an article of faith are beside themselves. Democrats are running out of adjectives to describe Trumps behavior. And activists who have been around for longer than the last election are wondering how to steer a steady course in the midst of extremities.

It reminds me of whitewater rafting on the Upper Gauley River in West Virginia, the kind where people arent supposed to even get into the raft unless theyve had prior experience. I never paddled so hard in my life. At one point, even our guide was tossed out of the raft; thankfully a nearby kayaker grabbed him and returned him to us.

When the activist and lesbian feminist writer Barbara Deming encountered Frantz Fanons Wretched of the Earth, she praised his raising the question of balance. Fanon, involved with with the Algerian war of independence from the French empire, was writing about armed struggle for liberation. He said a major challenge for revolutionaries at a time of accelerating turbulence is how to avoid vertigo, the dizziness that accompanies highly emotional events happening around us.

Demings personal experience in the 1960s civil rights movement brought that kind of challenge, she said in her reflection On Revolution and Equilibrium. Deming found in the midst of turbulence that her commitment to nonviolence was steadying for her and others. Locked up in jail in Albany, Georgia, as one of a group of pacifists arrested for breaking the segregation laws, Deming undertook a fast that when I saw her in the courtroom left her hardly able to walk. The group won their struggle with the infamous Sheriff Laurie Pritchett.

When I read her essay, I saw that her nonviolent commitment had a steadying a...

Wow! I just ran across this, somehow, and had not heard of it before. Its from May, 2018, prior to the North Korea talks. Representative Gabbard explains her views on the (upcoming, at the time) talks with North Korea, as well as pointing out the mistakes both the Bush and Obama administrations made by attacking Iraq and Libya, resp., and how the US needs to stop trying to be the policeman of the world.

Of course, thats what the deep state likes to do, to keep those lucrative wars going, right?

Democratic Rep. Tulsi Gabbard says that no matter how people feel about President Trump, there is an opportunity to end the Korean War and denuclearize North Korea and failure to capitalize could have dire consequences.

Steve Teles on the Federalist Society and the Left "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

Here is one bit from what is an excellent story with good material in every paragraph:

Mr. Teles makes sure to emphasize that his sympathy with the conservative legal movement here grows out of not his policy preferences, which lean left, but his belief in the importance of a powerfully structured constitutional system. I dont think the purpose of the Constitution is to get a government so small you can drown in a bathtub, he says. Rather, it is to ensure the government is democratically responsible.

Mr. Teles believes that one of the most salient projects for the newly conservative Roberts Court will be to roll back administrative-state prerogatives. That could revitalize Congress and restore the constitutional structure, vindicating two longtime goals of the conservative legal movement. But he thinks this could also end up serving certain policy ends of progressives.

For the past several decades, Mr. Teles says, many progressive victories in the economic realm have been achieved through administrative jujitsudifficult-to-understand maneuvers involving taxes, fees, mandates, regulations, and administrative directives. If courts start to block technocratic liberal plans for social reform because they violate the separation of powers, the left may find it easier to mobilize for pure redistribution as an alternative. Think of postal banking instead of CFPB regulation, or a carbon tax instead of the Obama administrations Clean Power Plan, or a reduction in the Medicare eligibility age instead of ObamaCare subsidies and exchanges.

That might be good for democratic discourse, Mr. Teles suggests. In some ways liberalism has been deformed by relying on administrative agencies, as opposed to making big arguments for big, encompassing social programs. In the short term, though, conservative courts will probably prove radicalizing for the left. Democrats may fully jettison Clintonism and say: Were going straight for socialism. Steeply redistributive programs enacted by legislatures would be easier to defend in court, even a conservative court, than unaccountable bureaucratic diktats.

That is from Jason Willick at the WSJ.  I am a big fan of Steve Teles, and in fact here is my Conversation with him (and Brink Lindsey).

Baby boomers in gig economy earn more than millennials and are far less stressed "IndyWatch Feed World"

Baby boomers working jobs in the gig economy are raking in more money than younger workers, are far less financially stressed and are typically more content with their situation, according to a study recently published by Prudential Financial. Boomers - those above 56-years-old, make an average of $43,600 a year while working 25 hours a week. This compares to Gen Xers (36-55) at $36,300 per year and Millennials (18-35) at $27,500. The younger generations are also working longer hours per week, with GenX at 30 hours and Millennials clocking in an average of 26 hours weekly. The reason behind the variance in income may be because boomers - due to their age - have more hard-to-find skills in fields in which Boomers appear well qualified, compared to younger and less experienced cohorts.

Hacking A Very Special 486 "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

Its fair to say that Moores Law is not delivering on its promise of advancing semiconductor capabilities as fast as it used to, as the limits of current fabrication techniques are being met. Where this is being written for example there are two laptops, one from the last year and one that is 11 years old, and while the new one is undeniably faster it has not overtaken the other by as much as a ten year gap between 1990s machines would have revealed.

So with older laptops being still so relatively quick, what possible attraction could there be for working on a machine from the 1990s, when the Moores Law curve was steeper? Its something [Jim W] is doing, with his HP Internet Advisor (J2522B), and when you see the machine in question perhaps youll understand why. The J2522B is a laptop, but its no ordinary 90s road warriors status symbol. This 486-powered beast is a piece of test equipment, specifically one for examining Ethernet ports, thus its built like a tank and is mains powered only. It boasts a 486DX4, 16 MB of memory, a then-colossal 1.3 GB hard drive, and an ISA Fast Ethernet card. Oh, and WIndows 95, which with a couple of decades hindsight seems an amusing choice to power a piece of security test equipment.  Impressive specs for the day, but the $20,000 price tag would still have been steep compared to a comparable laptop.

[Jim]s machine is destined for classic gaming, though with only the little HP pop-out mouse you saw on their Omnibook range at the time, he needed a PS/2 port. Some chipset hunting found that, but at the cost of accidentally frying a MOSFET when a screen connector was incorrectly re-inserted. Were then treated to a guide to substituting older MOSFETs with modern parts, useful in itself, but followed by a marvelous piece of bodge work as an SOIC-8 part is placed on a DPAK footprint.

This is an interesting series of posts, partly from a retro angle as they deal with an interesting machine, but also from a hacking angle as hes getting closer to the vintage PC hardware than most of us to. Keep an eye on it, there is sure to be more in the pipeline.


Democratic Socialism Rising in the Age of Trump "IndyWatch Feed World"

A week ago, Maine Democrat Zak Ringelstein wasnt quite ready to consider himself a member of the Democratic Socialists of America, even if he appreciated the organizations values and endorsement in his bid to become a U.S. senator.

Three days later, he told The Associated Press it was time to join up. Hes now the only major-party Senate candidate in the nation to be a dues-paying democratic socialist.

Ringelsteins leap is the latest evidence of a nationwide surge in the strength and popularity of an organization that, until recently, operated on the fringes of the liberal movements farthest left flank. As Donald Trumps presidency stretches into its second year, democratic socialism has become a significant force in Democratic politics. Its rise comes as Democrats debate whether moving too far left will turn off voters.

I stand with the democratic socialists, and I have decided to become a dues-paying member, Ringelstein told AP. Its time to do whats right, even if its not easy.

There are 42 people running for offices at the federal, state and local levels this year with the formal endorsement of the Democratic Socialists of America, the organization says. They span 20 states, including Florida, Hawaii, Kansas and Michigan.

The most ambitious Democrats in Washington have been reluctant to embrace the label, even as they embrace the policies defining modern-day democratic socialism: Medicare for all, a $15 minimum wage, free college tuition and the abolition of the federal department of Immigration and Customs Enforcement, also known as ICE.

Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, Congress only self-identified democratic socialist, campaigned Friday with the movements newest star, New York City congressional candidate Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez, a 28-year-old former bartender who defeated one of the most powerful House Democrats last month.

Her victory fed a flame that was already beginning to burn brighter. The DSAs paid membership has hovered around 6,000 in the years before Trumps election, said Allie Cohn, a member of the groups national political team.

Last week, its paid membership hit 45,000 nationwide.

There is little distinction made between the terms democratic socialism and socialism in the groups literature. While Ringelstein and other DSA-backed candidates promote a big-tent philosophy, the groups constitution describes its members as socialists who reject an economic order based on private profit and share a vision of a humane social order based on popular control of resources and production, economic planning, equitable distribution, feminism, racial equality and non-oppressive relationships.

Members during public meetings often refer to each other comrades, wear clothing featurin...

A national government would only deliver for the rich "IndyWatch Feed"

The national interest always ends up meaning the interests of the banks, financial services and industrialists

Diane Abbott. Image, Victoria Jones/PA Wire/PA Images

There is a growing chorus of voices calling for some kind of national government. Sometimes it is expressed by saying that politicians should come together to deliver Brexit. And there are whispers of moves to set up a new centre party which would incorporate politicians of all parties and none.

It is easy to see the superficial attraction of national government politics. The same argument is often used in relationship to the NHS. If only people sigh we could take the politics out of health issues.

The trouble is that (although politics has become almost a dirty word for much of the public) in truth there is no more intensely political subject than healthcare. How much you are prepared to spend on your health service, what level of tax you are prepared to levy to pay for it, whether you are concerned about rising health inequality and (ultimately) who gets to live or die because of decisions made these are political subjects where vastly different economic interests contend.

In the same way the idea that you can take the politics out of Brexit is delusional. When people talk about the importance of forming a national government in the national interest I am concerned. Because the question is whose nation and whose interest? The assumption behind national government is that the interests of a hedge fund manager in Mayfair are the same as a single parent in Hackney. But they are not. And the danger of a national government is that, inevitably, the interest of the poor and disadvantaged get marginalised. 

And you dont need to look in the crystal ball on this, you only need to look at the history of the 1931 National Government. It was set up to impose austerity in the national interest. It ushered in the grimmest of times for ordinary working people, who were to learn that the national interest was actually the interests of the banks, financial services and...

President Trump Lashes Out at Cohen Calls Taping Of Private Phone Call Inconceivable, Possibly Illegal "IndyWatch Feed"

On Saturday, President Trump lashed out at Michael Cohen for taping a private conversation between them and said it was probably illegal.

The FBI seized the recording during a pre-dawn raid of Michael Cohens home and office earlier this year.

Trump did not mention Michael Cohen by name, but he was referring to a New York Times report about a September 2016 phone call Trump had with his lawyer about a payment he made to Playboy model Karen McDougal.

Rudolph W. Giuliani, Mr. Trumps personal lawyer, confirmed in a telephone conversation on Friday that Mr. Trump had discussed payments to Ms. McDougal with Mr. Cohen in person on the recording. He said that it was less than two minutes long and that Mr. Trump did not know he was being recorded, and he claimed that the president had done nothing wrong.

Karen McDougal claims she had a year-long affair with Donald Trump in 2006.

McDougal sold her story to the National Inquirer for $150,000 but the tabloid, favoring Trump, didnt run the story a practice known as catch-and-kill.

Trump lashed out at Cohen and the corrupt government for raiding his lawyers home and office.

Trump tweeted: Inconceivable that the government would break into a lawyers office (early in the morning) almost unheard of. Even more inconceivable that a lawyer would tape a client totally unheard of & perhaps illegal. The good news is that your favorite President did nothing wrong!

The Deep State and Democrats are desperate to pin any type of hush payment Trump may have made to a woman as a campaign finance violation.

Michael Cohen also made a $130,000 payment to porn star Stormy Daniels in the weeks leading up to the election, which the FBI is also investigating.

Groundbreaking images of the Sun shed light on its dynamic corona (VIDEO) "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

By RT News

New detailed images of the Suns outer atmosphere called the corona reveals that the solar layer is not smooth as was previously thought, but is structured and dynamic.

The suns corona is extremely hot, and is the source of solar wind the charged particles that flow from our star. It has been difficult to understand how the turbulent solar winds get that way, with earlier  images of the corona showing it to be a relatively polished surface.

Previous images showed the outer corona as a smooth structure, but in deep space, the solar wind is turbulent and gusty, researcher Dr. Craig DeFores said.

Using new imaging techniques, the team realized that the corona is not smooth, but structured and dynamic, DeFores added. Every structure that we thought we understood turns out to be made of smaller ones, and to be more dynamic than we thought.

The Southwest Research Institute team used a COR-2 coronagraph in NASAs Solar and Terrestrial Relations Observatory-A (STEREO-A) to make the discovery. A coronagraph uses an occulating disc which is placed in front of the lens and blocks out the sun, so as to capture the find details of the plasma of the Suns atmosphere without it being blocked by the Sun.

The team took a series of longer-exposure images than normal, and took more than usual over three days. It then removed the noise in the images using filtering algorithms and adjusted the brightness to get the great images.

These boards were created by then Cabinet Office minister Francis Maude in order to make government operate in a more businesslike manner.

Sweden requests emergency assistance from EU to fight rapidly spreading, uncontrolled wildfires "IndyWatch Feed World"

Dozens of forest wildfires raged across Sweden Wednesday, prompting Stockholm to ask for emergency EU help to fight the blazes, which broke out during an extreme heatwave in the Nordic region. The Swedish Civil Contingencies Agency (MSB) said two Italian firefighting aircraft had been sent to assist in badly hit areas of central Sweden, while Norway had dispatched six helicopters. Norway has suffered from considerable forest fires of its own over the last week, with wildfires in 100 locations in the south last week, some of which were triggered by lightning. One Norwegian firefighter lost his life responding to the blazes while the country's Home Guard has also been deployed to relieve strained fire services. But the many forest fires that raged across southern Norway in recent days, particularly on Saturday and Sunday, are now under control or completely extinguished, news agency NTB reported on Wednesday. Despite that, the Home Guard is still assisting fire services in some areas, VG reports.


ANALYSIS: Did Obamas Deep State Get Slapped By Putin? "IndyWatch Feed"

Guest Post By Gary Gindler

A few days after the meeting between Trump and Putin in Helsinki, one can make an unambiguous conclusion: the Russian intelligence services outmaneuvered the remnants of Obamas corrupt FBI and the CIA leadership when Putin invited Muellers investigators to come to Moscow and interrogate twelve Russian state hackers. Of course, Russian military officers are not threatened, but during this interrogation, Muellers investigators will have to unconsciously disclose what they do and do not know about the Main Intelligence Directorate (military intelligence, commonly abbreviated as GRU), and SVR, the successor of KGB.

Putins condition for Americans interrogating Russian operatives would be that Russian interrogators would also be able to come to America with the privilege of interrogating American operatives. At the same time, Putin said that some U.S. intelligence agents were involved in the transfer of $400 million from Russia to Hillary Clintons campaign (the next day Putin corrected a slip of the tongue thousands, not millions of dollars).

The unprecedented arrival of Russian investigators to America and interrogation of secret agents of the FBI or the CIA is what Obamas Deep State has in fact achieved. Trump was not ready for this turn of events; he was placed between a rock and a hard place.

On the one hand, it is about his intelligence services. At the head of the FBI and the CIA are his people. On the other hand, the top echelons of the American intelligence services are corrupt fighters of the bureaucratic troops of the Obamas Deep State, who, as we now know, are participants in a conspiracy against Trump. A plot first aimed at winning the Presidency by Hillary Clinton, and then, after losing it to squeeze out Trump from the White House.

Until recently, agent Peter Strzok was one of the leaders of U.S. counterintelligence, who, as we now know from the hearings in Congress, demonstrates all the clinical symptoms of a psychopath. Also, there is every reason to believe that he, like Obamas right-hand advisor Valerie Jarrett, was the conductor of Obamas pro-Iranian policy. He, like Jarrett, grew up and was raised in Iran, and then in Saudi Arabia.

A method to translate between all computer languages "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

A real problem with computer programming is translation. Write something in one language, but then you need it in another. It makes it very difficult to transport your code to new platforms. Write something for android and it wont instantly work on apple too, you have to rewrite the code.

If the programming started within a translation environment, this could be avoided. The translation environment is a computer programming utility that allows you to write code and then choose which device you want it to work on. The end result is that you only program something once. Its like a set of universal wrappers that can be combined together to generate any feasible set of functions. Write a game in the translation environment and it can be played on android, IOS, windows. Any game could be as portable as fortnite.

Mnuchin calls on China, EU to make tariff concessions "IndyWatch Feed War"

US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said on Saturday he will be pushing China and the EU to agree to a more balanced relationship on trade when he meets with finance ministers at the Group of 20 convention in Buenos Aires.

Mnuchin arrived in the Argentine capital at the end of a week in which US President Donald Trump has ramped up his inflammatory remarks and threats with regard global trade.

AFP/File | US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin arrived in the Argentine capital at the end of a week in which US President Donald Trump has ramped up his inflammatory remarks and threats with regard global trade

Trump described China, the EU and Russia as trade foes and threatened to hammer the entire $500 billion in goods the US imports from China with punitive tariffs.

It is definitely a realistic possibility so I wouldnt minimize the possibility. Weve been very clear with our objectives, Mnuchin told reporters ahead of the start of the two-day G20 summit amongst finance ministers and central bankers from the worlds 20 leading economies.

We share a desire to have a more balanced relationship and the balanced relationship is by us selling more goods (to China).

The US trade in goods deficit with China stood at almost $376 billion in 2017.

Tremendous opportunity

Although the objective is to cut the trade deficit, the desire to do that is for them to open up their markets so we can compete fairly and increase our exports, he said.

I think its a tremendous opportunity for us and a tremendous opportunity for China.

China has a large, growing population that will consume more products and that likes American products.

He pointed to energy, agriculture and technology as areas in which the US could boost its Chinese presence.

But Mnuchin said joint ventures were a major stumbling block between the two countries, particularly when it comes to technology, stating that other than in certain security related cases, companies are free to do business in the US without setting up joint ventures.

He added: Theyre very interested in technology and were pleased for them to have our technology companies there as long as they do it in a way that our technology companies dont in any way feel the pressure to form joint ventures or transfer technology.

Theres a very large, growing opportunity, if we can reach agreement, that is good for China, good for their economy and good for US companies.

The EPO (European Patent Office) Under Antnio Campinos is Just Another Battistelli EPO; Still UPC and Software Patents Lobbying "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

While staff representatives are hung out to dry, judges enjoy no real independence, corruption isnt being tackled, and patent quality isnt cared about

THE EPO scandals arent over. In fact, none has been addressed, not to mention resolved (the new President just ignores virtually all of these scandals). His first step as President was UPC promotion (on his second day on the job). A new article by Shrey Pathak and Sanam Habib (Finnegan, Henderson, Farabow, Garrett & Dunner, LLP) and another by George Tebbutt (Haseltine Lake LLP) shows that Team UPC hasnt grown tired of lying. Theyre both wrong about Brexit and what the government says about UPC; it's merely "exploring", which is a polite way of saying "we can't quite promise anything" (because its an untenable situation, legally speaking).

For those who arent aware, the UPC is also inter alia a Trojan horse for software patents in Europe. Theyre trying to cement what they already do illegally, namely the granting of software patents.IAM, a UPC lobbyist on the payroll of the EPOs PR firm, has just begun advertising this event for software patents. Its a Troja...

Cardiologist who treated former President George H.W. Bush killed in bicycle drive-by shooting "IndyWatch Feed World"

A cardiologist who treated former President George H.W. Bush was killed Friday morning in a bicycle-to-bicycle drive-by shooting near Texas Medical Center in Houston, authorities said. Dr. Mark Hausknecht and the shooter were both riding bikes on South Main Street, near Texas Children's Pavilion for Women, shortly before 9 a.m. local time, Executive Assistant Police Chief Troy Finner said at a news conference. Hausknecht, 65, was biking north when he passed the shooter going in the other direction, Finner said. The shooter turned, fired two shots at Hausknecht and rode away on his bike, Finner said.

39 worldwide Jewish groups proclaim that BDS is not anti-Semitic "IndyWatch Feed World"

This letter was posted on the Jewish Voice for Peace site yesterday. As social justice organizations from around the world, we write this letter with growing alarm regarding the targeting of organizations that support Palestinian rights in general and the nonviolent Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement, in particular. These attacks too often take the form of cynical and false accusations of antisemitism that dangerously conflate anti-Jewish racism with opposition to Israel's policies and system of occupation and apartheid. We live in a frightening era, with growing numbers of authoritarian and xenophobic regimes worldwide, foremost among them the Trump administration, allying themselves with Israel's far right government while making common cause with deeply antisemitic and racist white supremacist groups and parties.

Third Way And The Republican Wing Of The Democratic Party Gears Up For War-- Against Bernie "IndyWatch Feed"

A few days ago I went to a fundraiser for a congressional candidate here in L.A. One of the artists you see frequently here at DWT, Nancy Ohanian, donated a huge aluminum rendition of the Bernie Sanders characature you see above. It's spectacular and comes up to my chest. I offered to auction it with the proceeds going to the candidate, a super-duper progressive who, in fact, had endorsed Bernie in 2016. I got to the event early so I could set up. While the host was helping me find a suitable place to display the art, a craggy old man-- let's say 80, but I'm not certain-- ambled over and started growling and barking at either me or the art. His point was one that young people who admire Bernie never make but this nasty old codger was spitting mad and demanded that Bernie retire. To be fair, I should also mention that he also screeched that Pelosi also retire. Anyway, his whole argument seemed to be about age. Later during the event he was snarling again, this time how the Democrats would lose if they nominate a progressive in 2020.

I don't often meet people ignorant enough to spout off like that in celebration of the Blue Dogs and New Dems who make up the Republican wing of the Democratic Party. But ole shit-for-brains was all in for it. I didn't want to upset myself by arguing with him about corruption or policy so I wandered over to another part of the gigantic backyard and thankfully never saw him again. Yesterday, however, Buzzfeed ran a report about the conference the Republican wing of the Democratic Party was holding in Columbus, Ohio. They're desperate to find someone to unite behind who will defeat the Bernie/Elizabeth Warren ticket in 2020.

Over 100 former Ohio State University students allege sexual abuse by ex-team doctor Richard Strauss "IndyWatch Feed World"

More than 100 former Ohio State University students have come forward to allege cases of sexual abuse suffered at the hands of ex-team doctor Richard Strauss during while studying at the university. New details of an independent investigation into sexual allegations against Strauss were announced by Ohio State University officials on Friday. "We are grateful to those who have come forward and remain deeply concerned for anyone who may have been affected by Dr. Strauss' actions," said Ohio State President Michael V. Drake. "We remain steadfastly committed to uncovering the truth." The revelations come less than a week after five former wrestlers filed a pair of lawsuits claiming that repeated sexual abuse complaints had been snubbed by university officials.

Starting July 22, SpaceX will have the chance to further cement itself as the best wide receiver in the aerospace game. Elon Musks rocket company is scheduled to make a total of five recoveries in less than two weeks, including three Falcon 9 autonomous spaceport done ships recoveries, a rocket fairing recovery, and a Dragon capsule retrieval.

This will require SpaceXs fleet of recovery vessels to kick into overdrive. Both of its drone ships Of Course I Still Love You in the Atlantic Ocean and Just Read The Instructions in the Pacific will be serving as a landing platform for two separate Falcon 9 rockets. While two boats, including the newly upgraded Mr. Steven and NRC Quest will be tasked with bringing back a Falcon 9 fairing and the Dragon Capsule, respectively.

SpaceX prides itself on pioneering the use of reusable rocket parts and space vessels to make space travel more affordable than it has ever been. These five recoveries will put the companys most iconic retrieval systems to the test.

ACSC Continues Commitment to Indian Country "IndyWatch Feed 1stpeople"

Athletic Commissions Elect Several Natives to ACSC Executive Committee

ST. PAUL, Minn.  The Association of Combative Sports Commission (ACSC) recently held their annual conference at the beautiful 5 Diamond InterContinental Hotel in down Saint Paul, Minnesota which is owned by The Mille Lacs Band of Ojibwe. The conference was attended by the general membership of the ACSC, which is comprised of Boxing and Mixed Martial Arts Commissioners, Executive Directors, Inspectors, Judges, Referees and Ringside Physicians.

The ACSC was founded in 2015 after many of the top state and athletic commissions demanded truthfulness, transparency and fairness which was absent from other industry organizations. Since then, the vast majority of tribal athletic commissions have come into the fold as this tribal-centric organization takes off.

The tremendous support that we have received from the tribal athletic commissions have not only ensured that we survived that first year but is the reason we continue to grow and will be here for a very long time. We are not going anywhere. Stated ACSC President, Matt Roberson.

Athletic Regulation is a new area of sovereignty for many tribes. Tribal athletic commissions have not always been treated well in other organizations. This is one reason for the popularity of the ACSC among sovereign athletic commissions.  Elections for the ACSC Executive Committee were held on Friday, July 13, 2018. The results reflected the diversity within the association.

The ACSC Secretary race resulted in Mille Lacs Band of Ojibwe tribal member Briana Michels coming out on top. Tim Lueckenhoff of the Missouri Office of Athletics was elected as ACSC Treasurer. Joe Miller, the Executive Director of the Oklahoma State Athletic Commission and a Member of The Citizen Potawatomie Nation was elected as Second Vice President and Washington State Athletic Commission Administrator, Susan Colard was Re-Elected as First Vice President. Wichita and Affiliated Tribes member Matt Roberson was Re-Elected as ACSC President.

American Indian Wedding Traditions "IndyWatch Feed 1stpeople"

Navajo wedding vase

Published July 21, 2018

Native American wedding ceremonies are commonly full of rich customs and traditions making these ceremonies differ greatly from conventional modern European and American weddings. So, whether youre planning to have a classic, fully traditional American Indian wedding ceremony or maybe looking to add some particular elements from those ceremonies into your own celebration as a type of a nod to your heritage, make sure you check out the following customs and traditions provided by dating website from which you can choose.

Natural rituals

Smudging: Traditionally done by igniting dried sage or any other flowers used for rituals, this Native American wedding ceremony is supposed to cleanse the couple and carry their prayers and wishes to the Creator.

The wedding vase: A Native American vase with two handles which is filled with ritualistic water or tea. Then, each fianc takes a sip from one side of the wedding vase before they finally lift it together and both drink from it. If they are able to accomplish this procedure without spilling the liquid, it is considered to be a good omen for their relationship and future life.

Blanket ceremony: Most Native American tribes tend to perform their own versions of the blanket ceremony in order to honor the couple in love. For wedding occasions, handmade blankets are usually wrapped around the couple representing the symbol of the new life the step into. Some couples then keep this blanket at the foot of their bed to remind themselves of their commitment to one another.

Couples get dressed in tribal regalia

While most couples will often wed in conventional wedding dresses and suits, some might choose to wed in traditional Native American attire. For example, Cherokee brides may wear a tear dress, made of soft fabric, while their grooms will be dressed in classic ribbon shirts. In this way, red is a common color for American Indian wedding dresses and white is...


The Unnecessary Tragedy in Missouri: Lessons for Our Society "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

The headlines in the Seattle Times and many other newspapers this morning describe the terrible loss of life on Table Rock Lake near Branson, Missouri as strong winds from a rapidly moving convective system resulted in the flooding and sinking of a duck boat filled with tourists.

The tragedy of this loss is compounded by the fact that it was totally avoidable:  National Weather Service forecasts and warnings were excellent, and the weather radar showed the developing threat well before the boat even entered the water. 

Unfortunately, this kind of avoidable tragedy is not an isolated incident, highlighting the need to connect the ever increasing abilities of meteorologists with the needs of society to be warned and to avoid severe weather.

The cause of the tragedy was a severe line of thunderstorms, with outflow winds in front of them.  The incident occurred over southwestern Missouri around 7:00 PM central time (5 PM PDT, 0000 UTC) on Thursday. 

Radar imagery clearly showed the approach of the severe convective line and strong evidence of associated powerful winds.  Let me show you using Springfield, Missouri NWS radar imagery.  Remember the accident occurred around 0000 UTC 20 July (meteorologists use a 24-h clock with the time at the Greenwich meridian).

At 2246 UTC (5:46 PM Central Time), a very strong convective line was approaching the area.  Red colors indicate heavy precipitation, perhaps with hail. (this field is called reflectivity, the amount of radar return from the precipitation, which is related to intensity)

At 6:17 PM, before the boat went into the water, the line was heading straight towards the lake, with many intense cells.  Look closely and you will see a faint line ahead of the main action--that is the gust front, the leading edge...

The Economist
Image may contain: 1 person, closeup

AMONG the Republicans cowering before President Donald Trump, the presence of Marco Rubio and Paul Ryan has been especially disheartening. Yet both threatened to regrow spines this week. Russia is an adversary, declared Senator Rubio, in response to the presidents fraternising in Helsinki. Russia is a menacing government that does not share our interests, said the Speaker of the House of Representatives. These were, if not stinging rebukes, better than Mr Rubios usual habit of keeping shtum and tweeting Bible verses whenever Mr Trump does something horrid, or Mr Ryans of offering a wry half-smile and a comment on tax reform. Yet both men, formerly known as principled conservatives, sullied their moment of revertebration. Both claimed the Russian election-hacking effort on Mr Trumps behalf had been a failure. It is also clear, said Mr Ryan, that it didnt have a material effect on our elections.

Not so. The margin of Mr Trumps victory in the electoral college was tiny, a matter of just under 80,000 voters in three rustbelt states. Any one of Hillary Clintons unforeseen troubles could account for that: including her late fainting fit, James Comeys blundering or an illicit Russian social-media campaign that suggested she was in league with the devil. And a bigger Russian intervention, the cyberwar on behalf of Mr Trump described in Robert Muellers indictment of 12 Russian military intelligence officers, could have hurt her more than all the rest combined. It appears to have been better-resourced, longer-running and more extensive and ingenious than almost anyone imagined.

The special counsels indictment describes a global network of anonymous servers and bitcoin miners, rampant identity theft and money-laundering, all focused on the Russian objective of getting Mr Trump elected. The Russian spies, whose identities, responsibilities and individual activities the indictment meticulously identifies, had a free run of Mrs Clintons party and campaign computer files until a few weeks before the election. The indictment suggests that they may additionally have stolen the Clinton teams voter-targeting data, which in the hands of he...

How These University Students Plan to Break the Hyperloop Speed Record "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

Delft Hyperloop is back, and it claims its about to break the speed record for hyperloop. As 20 teams gather in Hawthorne, California, for SpaceXs third pod racing competition on Sunday, the Netherlands-based group could be one of the key drivers in a transportation revolution.

Our objective is to go faster than the current record, Clment Hienen, the teams design engineer, tells Inverse. For sure, we designed to break the record.

Its a bold claim, especially considering the wider industry. When Elon Musk first released his white paper for a vacuum-sealed-tube-based transportation system in 2013, he claimed pods could fly through at a theoretical maximum speed of 700 mph cutting a six-hour drive from Los Angeles to San Francisco down to just 30 minutes. Musks own firms set a public speed record of 220 mph in August 2017, only for Richard Branson-backed Virgin Hyperloop One to beat the record with 240 mph in December 2017. Delft plans to beat both of these.

Steve Beckow -- Climate Change: Something to be Feared or Welcomed? (Part 1/4) "IndyWatch Feed World"

Climate change is a situation that's not well understood in the world.

Many people fear that it's an indication that we're in the end times. We are in the end times - of a cycle, to be sure - but not at "the end of the world." (1)

Many other people stoke the public's fear with disinformation and misinformation, often predicting a catastrophe.

What's the actual state of things?

Climate Change and the Return of a Temperate Climate

My sources are the archangels and terrestrial and galactic ascended masters, which I call, after Patricia Diane Cota-Robles, the "Company of Heaven." They speak to inform us, through credible channels or mediums.

First of all, they say that climate change has many causes, some to do with humans and others to do with Gaia herself and the Sun.

In fact the entire process is like dominoes - something impacts the Sun which impacts Gaia which impacts us.

What we think of as climate change is at least in part a feature of Gaia's gradual Ascension.

We were headed towards ecological disaster before civilizations from off-planet joined with Earth's White Hats (the Alliance, they're called now) to defeat such measures as false-flag operations, weather warfare, pandemics, torture prisons, pedophilia, child sacrifice - on and on the list of atrocities goes

In fact rather than being headed for Armageddon, we're headed for a universally-temperate climate, if my sources are to be believed. And an expanded beingness thrown into the bargain.

We'll witness our return as a planet to conditions similar to the Garden of Eden, Matthew W...

Administrative Law Judge Photos
Reference: Administrative Law Judge Photos

Summary: Cisco is leveraging software patents which PTAB deemed to be invalid against a much smaller firm (revenue ~30 times smaller [1, 2]), demanding an embargo and bypassing the ordinary routes of justice by turning to the ITC

Sometimes companies want to bypass the ordinary courts (District Courts, Federal Circuit, SCOTUS) to just quickly issue an injunction, i.e. embargo, raids, prevention of import/sales and so on. Its the kind of thing that the EPO is pursuing with its shameless UPC lobbying. The assumption that any patent granted by the USPTO is OK or should be presumed valid is a dangerous one and proper justice (due process, plus appeal/s, innocence until proof of guilt) isnt assured anymore. Its a leap towards extreme action. Its not really patent justice but patent prejudice and maximalism. Its like copyright takedowns (as per DMCA) where the accused gets censored without even a right/access to defense. Ripe for abuse? By design?

Rather than show any skepticism toward this smarmy hedge-fund operator and his claims of victimhood, the U.S. Congress and mainstream media just take him at his word because, of course, his story fits the ever-present Russia bad narrative.


Russia and America Must Unite Against the Globalists If Humanity Is to Survive "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"


Russian and American troops at Fort Carson, May 2012. In 2018, the two countries better form a strong alliance because they will be attacked by the globalists through proxy, the United Nations. Under the Kigali Principles that UN can militarily enter any country that they deem to under duress.

The following paragraphs contains items which seem to praise Putin and put him up on a pedestal. That it is not the intent of this article. Putin, if he thought he could get away with it, would not hesitate to conquer America. However because of two factors, Putin cannot hold his country together under the banner of extreme isolationism. Americas secret, military space based program keeps Putin in check because Putin does not have the ability to thwart the American military threat from above. Putin lives in fear of a Muslim immigration invasion similar to what has destroyed Europe. This makes Putin and Trump willing partners, out of necessity, to oppose radical Islamic forces. Trump faces a similar challenge to Americas national security.

Putin has significant issues with the central banks. Trump has significant issues with the central banks. The New World Order crowd (ie Bank of  International Settlements and the Rothschilds) cannot move their plans of world domination through a one-world-government and a unified and controlled socialist economy any further as long as Trump and his populism and Putin and his nationalism exist in the world. Both countries and their respective governments must be destroyed for the globalists to impose their will on humanity.

The ultimate goal of the New World Order is to set up Satans Kingdom on Earth. To accomplish this goal, certain things must happen. First, all notion of notions of Christian-based free will must be eliminated. People belong to the state, they live to serve the state.

Malware Author Builds 18,000-Strong Botnet in a Day "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

Malware Author Builds 18,000-Strong Botnet in a Day

A malware author has built a huge botnet comprised of over 18,000 routers in the span of only one day.

This new botnet has been spotted yesterday by security researchers from NewSky Security, and their findings have been confirmed today by Qihoo 360 Netlab, Rapid7, and Greynoise.

[...] The botnet has been built by exploiting a vulnerability in Huawei HG532 routers, tracked as CVE-2017-17215.

Scans for this vulnerability, which can be exploited via port 37215, started yesterday morning, July 18, according to data collected by Netlab's NetScan system.

[...] Wicked/Anarchy is a well-known malware author who, in the past, has created variations of the Mirai IoT malware. These variations and their respective botnets were known as Wicked, Omni, and Owari (Sora), and had been previously used for DDoS attacks.

[...] But Anarchy is not done yet. The botnet author told Anubhav that he also plans to target CVE-2014-8361, a vulnerability in Realtek routers exploitable via port 52869.

One day in the bright future, everything connected to the internet will be magically supported forever by updates from the manufacturer. No more malware. The intarweb tubes will be one giant safe space with rainbows and unicorns for all.

Fossil Fuels On Trial: Where The Major Climate Change Lawsuits Stand Today "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

A wave of legal challenges that is washing over the oil and gas industry, demanding accountability for climate change, started as a ripple after revelations that ExxonMobil had long recognized the threat fossil fuels pose to the world. Over the past few years: Two states have launched fraud investigations into Exxon over climate change. Nine cities and counties, from New York to San Francisco, have sued major fossil fuel companies, seeking compensation for climate change damages. And determined children have filed lawsuits against the federal government and various state governments, claiming the governments have an obligation to safeguard the environment. The litigation, reinforced by science, has the potential to reshape the way the world thinks about energy production and the consequences of global warming.


'Putting conscience before career' - Dr. Bob Sears emerges with full license to practice and no admission of wrongdoing "IndyWatch Feed World"

Bob Sears, MD faced down the Medical Board of California (MBC) and has come through with his license to practice fully intact. There was no admission of wrongdoing by Dr. Sears, the case never went to trial and hence there was no hearing. The end result of an investigation spanning several years yielded a record-keeping issue and Dr. Sears being put on probation. In a recent Facebook post, he explains: "A child and his mother came to me for help. The mom described how her baby had suffered a moderate to severe neurologic reaction to vaccines almost three years prior, and she was afraid a judge in her upcoming hearing was going to force her to resume vaccines now. Medical records of the reaction were not available yet, and I gave the patient a letter of opinion to show the judge that the reaction was severe enough to justify not doing any more vaccines."

Stirring the pot: US releases $200mn in military aid to Ukraine "IndyWatch Feed World"

Just days after the Helsinki summit between US President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin, Washington has cleared the transfer of $200 million in military assistance to Ukraine. The sum, earmarked for "security assistance", was allocated months ago, but was kept on hold pending "a series of defense reforms" the US demanded of Kiev. On Friday, the Ukrainian Embassy in Washington announced that the funds have been released - which was soon confirmed to CNN by Major Sheryll Klinkel, a Pentagon spokeswoman. Citing another unnamed Pentagon official, CNN reported that the funding will be used for training, counter-artillery radars, high mobility multipurpose wheeled vehicles ("Humvees"), night vision goggles, as well as communications and medical equipment.


Mays Syria Policy Gets Thumbs Down from Bipartisan Group of UK Pols "IndyWatch Feed World"

LONDON The Global Network for Syria, which includes a bipartisan group of several British policymakers and former British ambassadors to Syria, has slammed the U.K. governments current foreign policy on Syria, Saying that current efforts of prolong suffering in the country by funding so-called moderate armed opposition forces that are dominated by Jihadist militants.

The group, combining U.K. politicians from the Conservatives, Labour, Liberal Democrats and independents as well as former Ambassadors to Syria Peter Ford and Lord Green of Deddington wrote a letter to U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May that, according to U.K. newspaper The Independent, asserted that the countrys current Syria policy will ensure that stabilisation and reunification under a unitary authority remain a distant possibility, prolonging the suffering of the Syrian people and weakening the stability of the Middle East as a whole.

The letter also called for the U.K. government to lift sanctions against government-held portions of Syria, support diplomatic instead of military solutions, and allow Syrian President Bashar al-Assad to remain in power. And it spoke against the de facto foreign occupation of Syrian territory in Syrias northeast, a region that accounts for more than 30 percent of Syrias total territory as well as most of its oil, gas, fresh water and agricultural resources. British forces are among the other foreign powers, which also include the United States and France, that are currently occupying that territory.

Bombshell Development: Lisa Page Reveals Plot Against Trump "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

Bombshell Development!

FBI anti-Trump plotter Lisa Page revealed under oath that there is no basis for Muellers appointment.

The Mueller special counsel investigation was launched to probe charges that the key FBI officials developing evidence in the case thought were baseless.  Thats a bombshell accusation that appears to have been confirmed by lovebird-turned-songbird Lisa Page, according to John Solomon.  It tends to confirm the suspicion that the Mueller probe is a cover-up operation to obscure the criminal use of counterintelligence capabilities to spy on a rival presidential campaign and then sabotage the presidency that resulted.

Robert Steele: Neil Cavuto (Fox News) and Mike McCaul (R-TX, DHS) Are Bushies Their Broadcast Just Now Was Defamatory, False, and Reprehensible UPDATE 2 Texas Drug Racket? "IndyWatch Feed War"

Robert David STEELE Vivas

Ive known for some time that Fox News is only marginally better than Crap News Network (CNN), but today Neil Cavuto persuaded me that Fox News is part of the Deep State media network and everyone at Fox News is an enemy of the President.

The segment with Mike McCaul (R-TX) who has a role managing the House oversight committee for the Department of Homeland Security (itself a mass surveillance and enforcement arm of the Deep State and the Deep States Zionist underbelly), was defamatory, false, and reprehensible.

The Russians did not hack the election. The lies put forth by James Clapper and John Brennan and Mike Hayden are not only lies, they are malicious lies with knowledge of falsity and each of those telling such lies should lose their security clearances.

The time has come for the President to clear the White House of the scum that falsely claim to be an independent media.  They are not.  They are shills with malice aforethought of a Deep State / Zionist agenda that seeks to overthrow a President elected precisely because he can stand up to the Deep State and end the tyranny of the 1% who have been looting the US Treasury with impunity for the past century to include creating the Great Depression with the complicity of Franklin Delano Roosevelt, who also waged a covert war against Japan to induce Pearl Harbor, much as George H. W. Bush and Dick Cheney waged a covert Gold War against Russia (BillBrowder appears to have been an agent of the CIA in that covert illegal war against Russia).

The President needs a Trump Studio, a truth channel, and a communications team that is not walking around with its head up its ass.

Here is the updated floor plan that makes better use of the space now wasted on scum:

Gaza Freedom Flotilla Is Leaving For Gaza "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

Four boats from the Right to a Just Future for Palestine Freedom Flotilla Coalition are scheduled to leave Palermo, Sicily, to break the illegal Israeli blockade of Gaza, and to assert the Palestinian peoples right to freedom of movement and their right to a just future. As we mark 100 years since the birth of Nelson Mandela, we recall his words on his release from prison in 1990: We know too well that our freedom is incomplete without the freedom of the Palestinians. As always, our boats carry representatives from across the world and messages of love and solidarity for those living under the inhumane, decade-old blockade the collective punishment on the civilian Palestinian population of Gaza. Given the dire situation in Palestinian hospitals, we are also transporting some urgently needed medical supplies (#Gauze4Gaza).

The New York Times parrots Israeli brigadier general on Gaza attack "IndyWatch Feed War"

Documenting New York Times pro-Israel bias in its coverage of Gaza is tiresome but necessary. In todays print edition, the papers first sentence claims that Israels latest aerial assault on the open-air prison territory started after a Palestinian sniper killed an Israeli soldier along the border fence.

Hold on. If you read down to the 20th paragraph, you eventually learn that a day earlier, Israel had killed a Hamas militant in southern Gaza. You didnt read it in the Times, but Hamas immediately denounced what it called a cold-blooded crime and promised retaliation.

So in fact, it was Israel, not the Gazans, who triggered the latest escalation.

Chronic bias continues throughout the article. The Times takes 3 paragraphs of dictation from an Israeli brigadier general, and, for good measure, adds another paragraph from a lower-level military mouthpiece. But the paper found no room to interview people like Ayman Odeh, the respected Palestinian leader in the Israeli parliament, who counseled restraint. You have to turn to Haaretz to see that Odeh said:

The residents of Gaza have been crying for months under the Israeli siege, and the government has failed to understand that more attacks and fighting will only broaden the bloodbath. This is the time to talk about Israels responsibility for Gaza and for justice.

There is more. The Times quotes Israels military as claiming that the dozens of sites its warplanes hit yesterday  were military targets. The report notes that two of its journalists, Iyad Abuheweila and Ibrahim El-Mughraby, contributed reporting from Gaza City. So where is their reporting? Send them out to confirm or deny that Israel is telling the truth about military targets.

The paper also says that Israelis nerves have also been frayed by a plague of wildfires set by flaming kites and balloons launched from Gaza into southern Israel .  .  .

Fine but why not ask its two reporters in Gaza City to find out the state of Gazans nerves as warplanes strike their neighborhoods again and drones hover over their rooftops?

Distortion even applies to one of the photos alongside the article, which purports to show Gazan protesters as they try to move part of the border fence. In fact, the barbed wire in the picture is almost certainly within Gazan territory, and the...


Turkey's Erdogan Will Run Country Single-Handedly, "Dissenters Will Be Fired": Top Advisor "IndyWatch Feed World"

In the aftermath of the recent presidential election which granted Turkey's Recep Tayyip Erdogan executive powers, it appears the president wasted no time to make himself into a dictator.
Speaking to Turkey's Hurriyet newspaper, Mehmet Uum, one of Erdogan's chief advisers, Erdogan "will decide on how to run the country single-handedly under the countrys new system of government, and any personnel who do not fit in will be immediately replaced." He added that the new system would make it possible for issues that had been held up under the old parliamentary system to be resolved in the space of hours through Erdogans direct intervention.
In other words, Turkey is no longer a democracy, with no checks and balances...


Emotional reactivity: People who think faster in a bad mood "IndyWatch Feed World"

Being in a bad mood can help certain people think more efficiently, according to new research. Feeling fed up can boost some people's 'executive functioning', which includes their ability to focus, plan and prioritise tasks. Conversely, good moods sometimes reduce other people's executive functioning. Professor Tara McAuley, study co-author, said: "Our results show that there are some people for whom a bad mood may actually hone the kind of thinking skills that are important for everyday life."


Iran supreme leader Khamenei threatens to block all Gulf oil exports if its own are stopped "IndyWatch Feed World"

Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has said that no country in the region will export oil if Iran's exports are stopped. The same threat was earlier voiced by President Hassan Rouhani. Speaking to Iranian ambassadors and senior diplomats on Saturday, Khamenei backed Rouhani's earlier warning to close the Strait of Hormuz, thus blocking all oil shipments from the Persian Gulf. "[These] were important remarks that reflect Islamic Republic's approach," the Ayatollah said, according to his official website. He added that Iran's Foreign Ministry must closely follow the approach.


At Maxine Waters' L.A. office, defenders were in place but protesters agree to call it off "IndyWatch Feed World"

Amid controversy over comments by Rep. Maxine Waters, the militant group Oath Keepers scheduled a protest at the Democrat's Los Angeles district office Thursday afternoon, only to apparently agree to call it off after police expressed fears of clashes with counter-demonstrators. Dozens of Waters supporters, led by people waving signs and chanting into bullhorns, showed up well before the 1 p.m. stated start time for the protest by the group. But shortly before 1, police who had been watching over the scene at South Broadway and 102nd Street, began spreading the word that the Oath Keepers weren't coming. LAPD Sgt. Childress said police and Oath Keepers leaders spoke and decided "to maybe find a different avenue to express themselves." Childress, who wouldn't give his first name, said police "wanted to make sure this remained peaceful."


Israel Launches Major Bombardment Against Palestinians In Gaza "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

Lieberman indicated that Israel would once again target civilians in any new major operation in order to exact political concessions from Hamas. Unfortunately, residents of Gaza will be among those who will have to pay the price, the defense minister stated. He also said that the operation would be more painful than Operation Protective Edge, the devastating assault Israel waged in summer 2014. More than 2,250 Palestinians were killed during that assault about one in every 1,000 Gaza residents. Israeli fatalities included nearly 70 soldiers and six civilians. About two-thirds of all Palestinians killed during the 51-day operation were civilians, who paid the heaviest price, according to the chair of a United Nations special committee to investigate Israeli practices impacting Palestinian human rights.

Russia, leftist insanity and the treason that wasn't "IndyWatch Feed World"

It's become clear to me U.S. politics is reaching a breaking point. The level of hysteria over Donald Trump's summit with Vladimir Putin is wholly disproportionate to what actually occurred. Putin declared the Cold War over. Pat Buchanan agrees and so do I. For as much grief as I give Donald Trump for his many missteps in foreign policy, his going to first Singapore and then Helsinki in the service of peace and better relations is more than commendable. It was necessary. Donald Trump may not be the President many of us wanted. But, like it or not, he is both the president we have and the one we deserve. Our politics have been on a collision course with the bottom of the cesspit since 9/11.

Experts discovered Calisto macOS Trojan, the first member of Proton RAT family "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

Security experts from Kaspersky Lab have discovered a precursor of the infamous Proton macOS malware that was named Calisto.

Malware researchers from Kaspersky Lab have discovered a malware, tracked as Calisto, that appears to be to the precursor of the Proton macOS malware.

We recently came across one such sample: a macOS backdoor that we named Calisto.

The malware was uploaded to VirusTotal way back in 2016, most likely the same year it was created. But for two whole years, until May 2018, Calisto remained off the radar of antivirus solutions, with the first detections on VT appearing only recently. reads the analysis published by Kaspersky.

Conceptually, the Calisto backdoor resembles a member of the Backdoor.OSX.Proton family:

The malicious code seems to have been developed in 2016, while Proton was first spotted in 2017.

According to the experts, the malware was uploaded on VirusTotal in 2016 but none noticed it until May 2018. Kaspersky has no information about the way the threat was propagated, they immediatelly noticed that some features implemented by Calisto were still under development.

The Calisto installation file is an unsigned DMG image under the guise of Integos security solution for Mac.

The analysis published by Kaspersky revealed that many features implemented in Proton malware were not present in Calisto.

Proton malware was first discovered in March 2017, threat actors were offering for sale it on an underground hacking forum for a price ranging from $1,200 to $830,000 for the entire project.



Hamas Accedes to Cease-Fire After Israeli Onslaught in Gaza "IndyWatch Feed Africa"

JERUSALEMGazas militant Hamas rulers said Saturday they had accepted a cease-fire ending a massive Israeli onslaught on militant positions after a soldier was shot dead, once again pulling the sides back from the brink of a full-fledged war.

Israel and Hamas have fought three such wars over the past decade and Hamas agreed to the second such cease-fire in a week under heavy Egyptian and international pressure.

Even after last weeks cease-fire ended the fiercest exchange of rocket fire and Israeli airstrikes since the 2014 war, incendiary kites and balloons continued to float from Gaza into Israel setting off damaging fires to farmlands. Israel has stepped up strikes since then to signal its new threshold for engagement after months of la
