Tucker - Fed Courts Are Out of Control, 2071 "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

- Natural Hemp Oil - Use promocode: BillStill for 10% off. Vets get 15% off. https://Naturalhempoil.com Good morning, Im still reporting on: Tucker - Fed Courts Are Out of Control, 2071 Synopsis: I just can't say enough about this great, great piece by Tucker Carlson last night on the ever-growing abuses by federal judges of proper role of our three branches of government. No one - and I mean no one else - on network television would #1 dare to take a critical look at what's going on with federal judges; and #2 have the intellectual resources to put such a topic in proper perspective. For years, I've heard that federal judges are out of control. They are rewriting laws as petty dictators would. We've seen this problem explode with the ability of federal judges anywhere in the country to cancel laws made by Congress - the people's elected representatives - and even the President performing his perfectly Constitutional responsibilities of keeping us safe. What in the heck is up with that? Well, Tucker digs into this topic, with his reliable and prodigious research into this little known topic that is stealing power from the Congress and changing our system of governance in a way that for some reason has not raised any effective alarms.

Help California Split Up, 2069 "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

- Natural Hemp Oil - Use promocode: BillStill for 10% off. Vets get 15% off. https://Naturalhempoil.com Petition URL: https://tinyurl.com/SR2069 Good evening, Im still reporting on: Help California Split Up, 2069 Synopsis: This is a rather complicated topic which will take several reports to unfold fully, but today we're just going to start by plugging a petition mounted by citizens of 23 northern California counties who are petitioning President Trump to allow these counties to split off and form a new state, to be called Jefferson, the 51st state. If 100,000 signatures are gathered by March 22, then President Trump has to take a serious look at this idea. Although the President would not decide the issue, he could certainly inject a hearty boost to this long-sought remedy. The idea is nothing new, in fact, it has been done 4 times already in U.S. history. Article 4, Section 3 of the U.S. Constitution spells out how a state split is to be accomplished. "1: New States may be admitted by the Congress into this Union; but no new State shall be formed or erected within the Jurisdiction of any other State; nor any State be formed by the Junction of two or more States, or Parts of States, without the Consent of the Legislatures of the States concerned as well as of the Congress." The process, known as a state partition proposal, has been used effectively 3 times: - in 1792 when Kentucky split off from Virginia - in 1802 when Maine split off from Massachusetts - in 1863 when West Virginia split off from Virginia In California, the most populous state in the US, and the third largest after Alaska and Texas, has been the subject of more than 220 state partition proposals since 1850. Southern California attempted three times to separate from Northern California, in 1855, 1859 and in the later 1800s discussions were held over a number of years because of the difficulty of traversing the mountains above Los Angeles. This was finally solved with the creation of a highway across these mountains which later became Interstate 5. But the issues are entirely different today. Today the issue is over the lack of representation created by not expanding the number of state assembly persons and senators to match population growth. This originally was a plot to deprive the burgeoning Chinese population of having proper representation in California decades ago, but it has subsequently morphed into the counties surrounding the Bay Area - San Francisco, and those surrounding Los Angeles now completely dominating the legislative process.

Mass protests against Merkel and immigration are spreading through Germany "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

Mass protests against Merkel and immigration are spreading through Germany

By Voice of Europe

Germans are not planning to stop protesting against Angela Merkel and her migration policy. Several demonstrations have already taken place and the next one will be on 24 February.

Most of Germanys protests started after the shocking murder of the 15-year-old Mia, by an Afghan refugee. The girl was attacked and murdered with a knife in a drug store in the town of Kandel.

A few courageous women started protesting in the city after it appeared the mayor was more concerned about xenophobia than about the safety of the citizens. The protest went bigger and later resulted in a march for Mia under the motto: Kandel is everywhere.

Later there were protests in Cottbus, Hamburg, Dresden and Kandel again. Most protesters are concerned about how Germany is changing under Merkel and about migrant violence against women and girls.

1,510 children abused in Rotherham sex scandal, new report says "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

1,510 children abused in Rotherham sex scandal, new report says

By Lucia I. Suarez Sang

The child sexual abuse scandal that rocked a central city in the United Kingdom when it erupted four years ago appears to be worse than originally believed.

New figures by the National Crime Agency (NCA) put the number of children believed to have been sexually exploited in the town of Rotherham over 16-year period at an astonishing 1,510 up from the 1,400 figure identified in a 2014 report.

At least 1,300 were female, detectives said Tuesday, the BBC reported.

A previous report commissioned by the Rotherham Council in 2014, found that at least 1,400 children a conservative estimate had been sexually exploited in the South Yorkshire city between 1997 and 2013.

According to the 2014 report, children as young as 11 were raped by multiple perpetrators, abducted, trafficked to other cities in England, beaten and intimidated.

Police said the victims were plied with drugs and alcohol before being abused at parties, in taxis or in back rooms. The vast majority of the victims were white British girls ages 11 to 19. 

The NCA is conducting an independent investigation called Operation Stovewood at the request of the South Yorkshire Police.

In its new findings, the NCA said it has identified 110 suspects of being part of child-grooming gangs in Rotherham. About 80 percent of the suspects identified are of South Asian Muslim backgrounds, the Guardian reported.

(Operation Stovewood is) a unique and unprecedented investigation, challenging in its scale and complexity, said Paul Williamson, senior investigating officer with the NCA. The momentum and pace of the inquiry is increasing and that will continue to increase. Justice is being rendered and Ive got a very, very committed team thats working on a very worth mission.

The NCA said 35 individuals have been arrested, 18 have been charged and four have been co...

When School Shootings (and Opioid Epidemics) Grow the Economy, Weve Built it Wrong "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

Or, Why The Economy Weve Built Gets Life and Death Upside Down

Heres a tiny question. Have you ever wondered how the economy can be doing wellwhile kids massacre each other regularly at schools? After all, an economy, if its anything at all, is about how well we live. And yet, American economics presents us with a strange paradox: peoples lives can be falling apart while the economy roars.

Why is that? Lets consider the example of school shootings. What happens in response to each one? Well, active shooter drills are now sold to schools. Thats a whole new industry. Gun sales roar and gun stocks soar. Parents spend more money monitoring their kids, trying to keep them safeeven buying them bulletproof gear. So the economy growseven as kids become less and less safe by the day.

Doesnt that make you a little uncomfortable? Isnt that a little, well, intuitively wrong that an economy should grow on the back of dead kids, while the living one and their parents are overwhelmed by anxiety, insecurity, and dread? In what sane universe does selling a school an active shooter drill count as beneficial economic activity?

Lets think a few years into the future.

One day, there is another shooting at a school. Poor kids are now tragically dead. We arm teachers. Cha-ching. Gun industry profits soaras they do after every mass shooting, sadly. We warn parents to buy bulletproof vests and backpacks. Cha-ching! We install metal detectors and checkpoints in schools. Cha-ching, cha-ching. We put cameras in every hallway and give kids monitoring bracelets to wear. Cha-ching! Profitwhich adds up to the growth of GDP, which is just the sum of profits. In all the ways above, perversely, a little monstrously, GDP grows as a result of school shootingsbut it wouldnt if we enacted gun laws.

But does it fall when there arent school shootings? There is a kid. He is not earning anything. There is another one. She is not contributing anything to the economy. They are pure consumerssoaking in education. They have nothing yet to give. Its true that their parents spend money on thembut they would spend that money elsewhere, in different ways in the absence of kidsmaybe on puppies, or vacation homes. Fewer kids, less taxes: educating children is a drain on the public purse, money that might be spent precisely on things like guns. So because it results in no greater profit, the well-being of children adds precisely nothing to the economyin fact, it subtracts from it.

(Now you know as well as I do that theres a better solutiongun laws. But let us continue with our exampleto understand this disconnect...

David Clarke: Florida students gun control push has George Soros fingerprints all over it "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

By John Bowden

Former Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke Jr. insinuated Wednesday that student survivors of the Parkland, Fla., school shooting were being manipulated by Democratic billionaire George Soros to organize for gun control.

In a tweet, the former Wisconsin sheriff wrote that media appearances and an activism campaign from students of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School against gun violence had George Soros fingerprints all over it.

Seventeen people were killed at the Parkland high school last week when a gunman attacked with an AR-15. In the days following, students of the school have organized a national campaign aimed at reducing gun violence.

Clarke, who resigned as sheriff last year amid speculation he would join the Trump administration, now serves as senior adviser and spokesman for the pro-Trump America First Action PAC. He is scheduled to speak at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) later this week.

CPAC organizers did not immediately respond to a request for comment on Clarkes remarks.

Clarkes tweet follows false conspiracy theories in right-wing media such as Gateway Pundit claiming that students at the Florida high school who have appeared on CNN, including David Hogg, are crisis actors paid to exploit the shooting for nefarious purposes.

BOMBSHELL REPORT: Twitter Employees Admit To Censoring Conservatives, Banning Them For Political Reasons "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

BOMBSHELL REPORT: Twitter Employees Admit To Censoring Conservatives, Banning Them For Political Reasons

By Ryan Saavedra

James OKeefes Project Veritas released a bombshell report on Thursday that shows Twitter employees admitting to censoring right-leaning accounts, including banning them from the network because they do not agree with their political views.

The report, based on undercover videos, shows Twitter employees admitting that they shadow ban right-leaning accounts, which essentially bans them from the platform without letting them know that they have been banned while allowing left-leaning accounts to slip through without the same scrutiny.

Another Twitter employee, Pranay Singh, admitted that the majority of their algorithms are geared in such a manner that they target people with certain political views.

I would say majority of it are for Republicans, Singh said.

Key takeaways from James OKeefes report:

  • Steven Pierre, Twitter engineer explains shadow banning, says its going to ban a way of talking
  • Former Twitter software engineer Abhinav Vadrevu on shadow banning: they just think that no one is engaging with their content, when in reality, no one is seeing it
  • Former Twitter Content Review Agent Mo Norai explains banning process: if it was a pro-Trump thing and Im anti-Trump I banned his whole account its at your discretion
  • When asked if banning process was an unwritten rule, Norai adds Very. A lot of unwritten rules It was never written it was more said
  • Olinda Hassan, Policy Manager for Twitter Trust and Safety explains, were trying to down rank shitty people to not show up, were working [that]on right now
  • Shadow banning to be used to stealthily target political views- former Twitter engineer says, thats a thing

Medium has suspended the accounts of Mike Cernovich, Jack Posobiec, and Laura Loomer "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

Alt-right leaders can no longer spread disinformation on Medium

A complete overhaul of the platforms rules caught some awful people in the crossfire.

By Paris Martineau

Medium has suspended the accounts of Mike Cernovich, Jack Posobiec, and Laura Loomer. Unfortunately, this means that articles like Cernovichs How I Would Run for Congress are no more. Links to any of the suspended accounts (or their published works) redirect to the dreary white suspension page, which reads This page is unavailable.

Screenshot of Mike Cernovichs Medium page.

While first pointed out on February 19 by Nathan Bernard on Twitter, its entirely possible that the suspensions could have occurred earlier in the month and gone unnoticed. The most likely culprit is the companys February 7 update to their Medium Rules section. Calling it an update is a bit of an understatement; its more like a total overhaul, with a particular targeted purpose.

By far the biggest change made by Medium is the addition of a section called Related Content, which reads We do not allow posts or accounts that engage in on-platform, off-platform, or cross-platform campaigns of targeting, harassment, hate speech, violence, or disinformation. We may consider off-platform actions in assessing a Medium account, and restrict access or availability to that account. (Emphasis ours.)

Though theres obviously no way to tell for sure, it seems reasonable to infer that this update was responsible for Cernovich, Posobiec, and Loomers suspension. When asked for comment on the suspensions, a Medium spokes person told The O...

Show us your target "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

John Taylor has been pressing the Fed to move toward a more rules-based approach.  I think Taylor is right on the big issue, although I dont share his preference for using interest rates as a policy instrument.

Ive always believed that the first step toward a rules-based approach is to clearly spell out the goal of monetary policy.  That should be an issue on which everyone on the FOMC agrees, once a decision has been made and voted on.  Unfortunately, the Fed has not done this.  The Feds policy goals are still shrouded in mystery.

The simplest solution would be for the Fed to set a univariate policy goal, say 2% PCE inflation or 4% NGDP growth.  Then spell out whether they favor growth rate targeting or level targeting.  Instead the Fed has chosen a dual target of 2% PCE inflation and unemployment close to the natural rate.  But what does that actually mean?  In order to make the goal clear, we need enough information to figure out whether previous policy was to expansionary or too contractionary.  Right now we lack that information.  Over the past 12 months, the unemployment rate has fallen to a level below the Fed estimate of the natural rate, while inflation has undershot their target.  So was the policy instrument setting 12 months ago too expansionary or too contractionary?  I dont know, which is precisely the problem.

The Fed often objects that explicit policy rules are too simplistic, and that they need to take many data points into account, as the economy is quite complex.  OK, but that doesnt excuse the lack of an explicit target, it just makes the target a bit more complicated.  So lets discuss what a plausible Fed target might look like.

1.  For inflation, the Fed might worry about the distorting effects of oil price shocks.  In that case, they can use core PCE inflation, setting the target at two percent.

2.  The labor market is even more complicated.  The Fed might want to take account of both the standard U-3 unemployment rate, as well as the more comprehensive U-6.  Some would even add in the prime age labor force participation rate (PALFPR).  Heres how a labor market indicator might look with those three variables:

Labor slack = U3 + 0.5*U6 + 0.1*(100% PALFPR)

At the moment, U3 unemployment is 4.1% and U6 unemployment is 8.2%.  U6 is also roughly twice as volatile as U3.  The coefficient of 0.5 on the U6 rate is intended to give the two measures roughly equal weight.  The labor force participation rate is 81.8%, so 100% minus that rate is 18.2%.  I gave this variable a lower weight, because its partly cyclical and partly structural.  Monetary policy can only address cyclical changes.

Using these weights, my current measure of labor market slack is 4.1% + 0.5*8.2% + 0.1*18.2% = 10.02%

For simplicity, lets s...

College average is over "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

Concord University in West Virginia and Clemson University in South Carolina were both founded shortly after the Civil War. During the 20th century, each grew rapidly. Now, the two public universities that sit just 300 miles apart face very different circumstances.

Clemson, a large research university, enrolled its largest-ever freshman class in 2017 and in December broke ground on an $87 million building for the college of business.

Concord, a midsize liberal-arts school, has seen its freshman enrollment fall 19% in five years. It has burned through all $12 million in its reserves and cant afford to tear down two mostly empty dormitories

According to an analysis of 20 years of freshman-enrollment data at 1,040 of the 1,052 schools listed in The Wall Street Journal/Times Higher Education ranking, U.S. not-for-profit colleges and universities are segregating into winners and loserswith winners growing and expanding and losers seeing the first signs of a death spiral.

The Journal ranking, which includes most major public and private colleges with more than 1,000 students, focused on how well a college prepares students for life after graduation. The analysis found that the closer to the bottom of the ranking a school was, the more likely its enrollment was shrinking.

That is from Douglas Belkin at the WSJ, via multiple MR readers, some of them excellent.

Martin Luther King, Jr., Credit Unionist "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

While reading Paul Thompson's historical novel The Credit Union Woman a while back, I was struck by an aside about how, during the Montgomery Bus Boycott, an attempt was made to form a credit union. Since then, I've been wondering about what came of that initiative, and today being Martin Luther King Day felt like a good reason to do a bit of research on the topic.

The boycott itself persisted from December 1, 1955, when Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat, until December 20th, 1956, when the Supreme Court ruling ending bus segregation took effect. In that time, African Americans in Montgomery got intensely organized under the umbrella of the newly formed Montgomery Improvement Association (MIA), which held regular mass meetings and brought together leaders from a broad cross-section of the community. While the impetus for that organization's establishment was handling the logistics of the boycott, it also became a vehicle for advancing other civil-rights related projects, one of which was a credit union.

The first mention I could find of the MIA advancing the idea of forming a financial institution is in a May 24th, 1956 document entitled "Recommendations to MIA Executive Board," in which King lays out a series of restructuring suggestions for the organization. Among these ideas, which were approved by the Executive Board on May 30th, includes the recommendation that:
 
In order to valuably utilize the present relaxed phase of the bus situation and capitalize on the prevailing enthusiasm and amazing togetherness of the pe...

Stronger Together? "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

Over twenty years ago, the first regional federation of worker cooperatives in the United States, the Network of Bay Area Worker Cooperatives (NoBAWC, pronounced no boss), was organized in San Francisco, in collaboration with the Industrial Workers of the World. Beyond mere collective ownership of individual enterprises, the group aimed explicitly to create a national movement for workers control over large sectors of the economy.

That strategy contrasts sharply with the recent vogue for worker cooperatives as entrepreneurial endeavors, which seeks to expand, rather than challenge, the rule of market economics. It therefore comes as a relief that Peter Raniss Cooperatives Confront Capitalism corrects the record. Ranis traces the origins of workers efforts to gain control over their productive lives to the beginnings of the factory and wage labor system itself. Agitation for workers control, sometimes advancing from a political demand to an economic reality, escalated as the labor movement grew throughout the nineteenth century, and only declined as a movement with the rise of a reformist labor leadership that abandoned its radical roots.

For Ranis, worker cooperatives provide the agency for social change that was missing from recent movements such as Occupy in the United States and the anti-austerity protests in Europe.

How The 198 Orwellian State Has Been Growing For A Long Time

By Arjun Walia

Within the past few years, so much information has come out contradicting the mainstream rhetoric. Election fraud, as made evident by Wikileaks, is one example, and false flag terrorism, with 9/11 being the perfect example, is another. The elite has been thriving off of shaping our perception about events to justify their actions in response to these events, all while manufacturing them in the first place. Perhaps one of the best examples comes from 2016, when the Pentagon was caught paying a PR firm more than half a billion dollars to create fake terrorist videos.

Russian President Vladimir Putin has also called out the desire by the elite for a New World Order, which would see the powers that be use imaginary and mythical threats to control us.

Ill be on INFOWARS with their host Owen Shroyer [today]to discuss my ban from the platform. The ban came minutes after doing a video on David Hogg, and his father, former FBI agent Kevin Hogg. Since my ability to upload has been restricted, I cannot be expected to update the YouTube public on what we know about HOGGs father. At this time, I do not believe he is the same Hogg who sold a financial services company to AmEx for around $300mm. Hopefully the public will correct this for me; readers seeing this on the public news platform synonymous with my journalism career, FULCRUM. This serves as abundantly kind public notice, therefore, and correction that former F.B.I. agent Kevin Hogg is, in my view, not the seller of a fintech company to AmEx however, I stand by our research teams claims about his son, David Hogg. None of this adds up. It pisses me off.

86 Percent of Teens Are Loaded With Gender-Bending Chemicals "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

86 Percent of Teens Are Loaded With Gender-Bending Chemicals

By Dr. Mercola

Bisphenol-A (BPA) was first created by a Russian chemist in 1891, but wasnt used in the manufacture of products until the 1950s when it was used to produce resilient and often transparent plastics. Today, BPA is found in countless personal care products, water bottles, cashier receipts and the lining of canned goods.

Although research shows BPA is detrimental to human health, the market was valued at over $13 billion in 2013 and expected to reach $20 billion in 2020.1 Unfortunately, as the demand for BPA-free products is rising, substitute chemicals that are nearly identical to BPA are being substituted and thought to produce the same negative human health effects.

Recently, a study from the University of Exeter determined the extent to which BPA is found in the human population.2 The study was a collaborative research project between community-based resources (high school students) and the University of Exeter researchers.

BPA Found in Nearly 90 Percent of Teens

The study tested the urine and blood of 94 students in Great Britain and found 86 percent of the teenagers had hormone-disrupting contaminants in their system. Although currently legal in Europe, the European Chemicals Agency3 reclassified BPA in 2017 as a substance of very high concern as it has probable serious effects on human health.4

The research project was carried out in a real-world setting to provide students with the experience of scientific research. The students designed, participated in and published the study, including how changes in their lifestyle or diet may have an impact on the amount of BPA in their bodies.5

The results support several previous studies, including one by the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) that found detectable levels of BPA in 93 percent of over 2,500 ind...

Quinn Slobodians *Globalists* "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

The subtitle is The End of Empire and the Birth of Neoliberalism.  Imagine a novel and interesting coverage of the post-war Austrian School, here relabeled the Geneva School, a well-done partial history of the WTO and EU, and a book where the central characters are not only Mises and Hayek, but also Alexander Rstow, Wilhelm Rpke, and Michael Heilperin.

And its written by a Wellesley historian who appears to be entirely sane and responsible throughout.

The main lesson, and here these are my own words not those directly of the author, is that various liberals came to realize that their dreams for a free world order in fact involved quite an extensive international legal apparatus, far removed from the traditional nightwatchman state.  The EU and the Four Freedoms are in this view the actual instantiation of historic classical liberalism, arguably more than anything the United States has done of late.  And if you dont like the over-regulation and excess bureaucracy of the EU, well maybe youd better realize those are difficult to avoid secondary consequences of having the international law be so strong as to actually constrain state power (again my words, not Slobodian, though his book may lead you to this idea).

Wilhelm Rpke it turns out is the (a?) bad guy, and I have to say I always considered him a third-rate, misguided agrarian thinker.  It turns out his views on Africa were not entirely sound, and furthermore he sought to pull the rest of the liberals away their economic libertarianism, keeping in mind that Hayek already favored a social welfare state and socialized health insurance, among other interventions.

I folded over 12 separate pages in this book, which is considerably higher than average.

That all said, I dont quite buy onto the whole story.  I read Hayek as rebelling against the vanquished Austro-Hungarian Empire, rather than keeping it as a mental model for reform.  Nor am I persuaded by the idea of a identifiable Geneva School, whether as an independent group or as a sub-branch of the Austrians.  In my view, the connections running through Geneva are historical ones (various people and institutions got put there), not intellectual in nature....

Leading Consciousness Researcher Bridges the Gap Between Science and Real Magic "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

By Dylan Charles

Is magic real? Sure it is, which is why theres such a long and storied history of it in every human civilization, and why so many people practice it everyday, whether they realize it or not.

Magic is one of the most enduring legends of humanity. Its at the core of the esoteric traditions, it saturates the literature of religion and science, and while it has been severely suppressed for millennia, fictional stories about magic are just as popular today as theyve ever been. [IONS]

Dean Radin, PhD, is Chief Scientist at the Institute of Noetic Science (IONS) and Associated Distinguished Professor of Integral and Transpersonal Psychology at theCalifornia Institute of Integral Studies (CIIS). Having explored the frontiers of human consciousness for decades, he is one of the worlds leading parapsychologists.

Among the many thousands of scientific papers, journals, articles and books he has written, his forthcoming work, Real Magic: Ancient Wisdom, Modern Science, and a Guide to the Secret Power of the Universe, will explore the links between magic and science.

Real magic, he notes, consists of three categories: Divination (think Tarot reading, The I Ching), force of will (The Secret, Power of Intention), and theurgy (shamanism, channeling), and magical thinking is everywhere today, seen as superstitions and prayer.

Drawing a distinction between real magic and fake or fictional magic, Radin explains:

When you think about magic, were talking about ancient ideas, and in the same way that alchemy turned into chemistry, and that astrology turned into astronomy, more or less, herbalism turned into the pharmaceutical world, theres a fourth level of what used to be called natural magic, which will turn into real magic at some point.
Whats interesting is that alchemy, astrology and herbalism all had elements of mental magic in them, but those parts have been left out in the scientific domain....

UN to vote on urgent help for Syrias Eastern Ghouta "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

Russia has vetoed several draft resolutions on Syria which it says are unfair and biased, often following fabricated evidence [Xinhua]

The United Nations Security Council is expected to vote on a new resolution calling for a 30-day ceasefire in Syria, following reports of heavy fighting and mass casualties near the capital Damascus.

Russia had called for the Security Council to meet to discuss the resolution, while Kuwait and Sweden called for a vote.

A draft of the resolution says the UN is outraged at the unacceptable levels of violence seen in the past few days in the Ghouta district of Damascus and Idlib province.

The UN says at least 340 people have been killed in Eastern Ghouta since February 4.

The expected vote on the resolution comes a day after UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres urged an immediate cessation of hostilities in these areas.

I am deeply saddened by the terrible suffering of the civilian population in Eastern Ghouta, 400,000 people that live in hell on earth, Guterres told the Security Council.

He called on humanitarian aid to be delivered to the needy and for all parties to the conflict to allow the evacuation of an estimated 700 people that need urgent medical treatment.

This is a human tragedy that is unfolding in front of our eyes, said Guterres.

Meanwhile, Russias UN Ambassador Vassily Nebenzia said that a 30-day ceasefire is unrealistic and difficult to enforce.

The Russian Defense Ministry on Thursday said that efforts to broker a ceasefire in Eastern Ghouta have failed because the Islamist anti-government factions there are digging in and refusing to surrender their weapons.

Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov has blamed them for the continuing fighting.

The Ministrys spokesman Major-General Yuri Yevtushenko also said the humanitarian situation there was getting critical.

US Ambassador to the UN Nikii Haley has said that its time to take immediate action to save civilians who are under attack from the Syrian army.

Eastern Ghouta cannot wait, she said.

Tough budgetary choices put South Africa on a fiscally sustainable path "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

This is the challenge of our time, to build a South Africa in which all people have a decent standard of living, access to economic opportunities and opportunity to pursue their dreams. Malusi Gigaba Budget Speech February 2018

Minister of Finance Knowledge Malusi Nkanyezi Gigaba says South Africa must confront and overcome a number of challenges if it is to sustain growth [GCIS]


In his briefing to journalists before his budget Speech, Finance Minister Malusi Gigaba was at pains to point out that the media should look at the budget holistically and not just focus on a few points such as raising taxes.

We have a positive narrative to tell and that is reflected in the raising of our gross domestic product (GDP) growth projections. We have taken the tough decisions to put us on a fiscally sustainable path while at the same time undertaking growth enhancing initiatives, he said.

After several years during which economic growth undershot our projections, we now see the improved growth projections for 2018 and subsequent years as a floor, rather than a ceiling. We are convinced that as business and consumer confidence return, and as government follows through on its commitments to enable growth with prudent, fast and decisive action, we can exceed our growth projections, he said in his Budget speech.

The toughest choice to make was raising the Value-Added Tax (VAT) rate from 14 per cent to 15 per cent, which puts it on a par with neighbouring states. This is the first VAT rate increase since 1993 and the first done by an African National Congress government. It will add R22.9 billion ($2 billion) to revenue every year.

The other tough choices involved cutting state expenditure, as programmes that were not efficient were cut. The total saving over the next three years was R85 billion, but these savings were to a certain extent offset by the additional R57 billion needed to provide free tertiary education.

The bottom line is that at the time of the October 2017 MTBPS, gross national debt was projected to breach 60 per cent of GDP in 2021/22, and continue rising thereafter. This Treasury projection reflected major revenue shortfalls, weak economic growth and a limited policy response. It prompted a sell-off in the rand in October and November 2017.

The outlook also represented a major departure from the 2017 Budget figures, which previously showed the debt-to-GDP ratio declining from 2018/19 onward.

The Saturn / Moon Matrix: Mind Control Platform for Earth "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

Must Watch Presentation by David Icke

Commentary by enerchi, AscensionWithEarth.Com

February 21, 2018

One of the best presentations ever created by David Icke, exposing the Saturn and Moon matrix that has mind controlled humanity for thousands if not millions of years.  The beings who are associated with the Saturn Councils, gods, and secret groups from earth have been indoctrinating humanity on a conscious and subconscious level for generations.

Some of these groups are now coming to the forefront acting as benevolent races, which some are, but these groups and beings have also been controlled and still are by the Saturn Councils/Elohim/False Gods for untold millennia.

As David Icke has said before, those in power create the problem, which creates a reaction from the chaos, and the same malevolent beings then present a solution.  Some of these Solutions are now coming to the forefront at this amazing time of humanities Ascension/Spiritual Awakening.  See the mind matrix for what it is and remember your own true powers come from within you.

Those who are awake will connect many dots after viewing this presentation.  Those who protest that the Gods/Elohim/Councils/Guardians from Saturn are trustworthy and benevolent should watch this research presentation from David Icke.  It may change your perspective and shatter your belief system.  Highly recommended to watch!

Some of these Saturn controlled groups are now preparing for evacuation from the current time-line of earth.  They are creating temporal time anomalies that are created in a void outside of humanities current ascension time-line.  These Saturn groups will enter these time voids and move to another time line as they believe they cannot survive the earth/sun/humanity spiritual frequency shift.

The end of the Saturn matrix is coming but please be aware that there is still an active campaign to harvest souls though different variations of religious and new age propaganda.

I also highly recommend a 3 hour presentation from George Kavassilas which exposes the false god matrix and Saturn systems of control.  I have posted it previously but if you missed it, you can view it at this link here..  https://youtu.be/tjde9yPFL7w

Let the robots take our jobs and pay for a universal basic income

As developments in artificial intelligence and robotics advance, there is going to be a severe and swift disruption of many working classes. Large swaths of laborers are going to lose their jobs, leading to unprecedented levels of unemployment.

To account for this problem, having access to basic needs should become a right, not a privilege for the non-automated classes. It should be the responsibility of the corporations that have taken away working-class jobs to grant families this rightand the best solution would be in the form of a universal basic income.

UBI, an economic proposition in which a sum of money is regularly paid to a population, could be a vital bulwark against the unintended consequences of automation in the workforce. Companies will profit significantly from workforce automation, so the private sector will be able to afford shouldering this burden, while at the same...

The only real solution to Too Big To Fail "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

In a recent post I suggested that higher capital requirements might be called for if policymakers were unwilling to bite the bullet and remove moral hazard from our financial system.

The FT has a new article discussing a Treasury proposal to end Too Big To Fail, by setting up a new type of bankruptcy for big banks.  I wish them well, but remain skeptical.  In my view, the only way well ever be able to remove moral hazard is with monetary policy reform.  If we can get to a policy of NGDPLT, then policymakers will no longer have to worry about the consequences of the failure of a big bank.  Unfortunately, thats likely to take many decades, as we first need to implement the policy, and then see how it does during a period of financial distress.  Only then would policymakers begin to feel comfortable rolling back TBTF.  (And even then, special interest groups will try to keep it in place.)

PS.  The NYT has a new post showing that historians view Trump as being the worst President in American history.  Thats also my view.  Some people judge presidential performance by how the country is doing.  Thats about like judging my blogging based on how monetary policy is doing.  A couple posts Id recommend are Yuval Levin explaining why Trump is not actually the President, in the conventional sense of the term.  Hes not qualified to be President, so day-to-day decisions are made by others.  Thus the GOP deep state wisely vetoed his recent attempt at crony capitalism, which would have re-regulated the coal and nuclear industry as a backdoor way of bailing them out.  The outcome was good, but Trumps specific input into the process was destructive.  Matt Yglesias also has a good post, explaining why Trump is much more corrupt that even lots of left-of-center reporters assume.

Russiaphobia Is Out of Control "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

Russiaphobia Is Out of Control

Paul Craig Roberts

As has been made perfectly clear, Muellers indictment of 13 Russians and 3 companies is just another hoax. See: https://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2018/02/16/result-muellers-investigation-nothing/ and: http://www.moonofalabama.org/2018/02/mueller-indictement-the-russian-influence-is-a-commercial-marketing-scheme.html

All Mueller has found is a bait-click commercial marketing scheme that had nothing to do with election interference.

Why is Mueller comfortable bringing a transparently false indictment?

The answer is, as Glenn Greenwald makes clear ( https://theintercept.com/2018/02/19/a-consensus-emerges-russia-committed-an-act-of-war-on-par-with-pearl-harbor-and-911-should-the-u-s-response-be-similar/ ) that Mueller knows there are large numbers of warmongering politicians and media whores who will seize on the fake indictment as proof that Russia has committed an act of war equivalent to Pearl Harbor and 9/11. The fact that what Mueller has indicted is only a bait-click marketing scheme will never be mentioned by politicians and presstitutes shouting the military/security complexs slogan that Russia must be punished.

Greenwald supplies the names of some of these reckless and irresponsible people who are willing to bring on war with their rants: politicians Hillary Clinton, John McCain, Jeanne Shaheen, Jerry Nadler, Marco Rubioindeed almost all of CongressClinton aides such as Philippe Reines and John Podesta, and the legions of presstitutes such as Karen Tumulty, David Frum, Chuck Todd, Tom Friedmanindeed, the entirety of the print and TV media with the exceptions of Tucker Carlson and Pat Buchanan.

When a country armed to the teeth with nuclear weapons and overwhelmed by its own exceptionalism and indispensability has political and media lunatics equating a bait-click commercial marketing scheme with Pearl Harbor, that country is a recipe for the end of the world.

Note: Two presstitutes at Bloomberg, Lauren Etter and Ilya Arkhipov think that filming disadvantaged Americans in order to cast the US in a bad light is the same as interfering in the presidential election, and they think that a Russian food caterer is heading a Russian disinformation campaign....

In Unexpected Twist, Judge In Flynn Case Asks Mueller For Exculpatory Evidence "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

By Zero Hedge

The federal judge assigned to the criminal case against Trumps former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn has ordered Special Counsel Robert Mueller to turn over any exculpatory evidence to Flynns defense team.

Oddly, however, Flynns legal team did not make this request. Instead, Judge Emmet G. Sullivan issued the order sua sponte, or at his discretion, invoking the Brady Rule which requires prosecutors to turn over previously unfiled evidence that might have a material impact on a defendants case. Interestingly, two days before the order Mueller filed a motion for an agreed-upon protective order regarding the use of evidence in the case, including sensitive materials, provided to Flynns lawyers by the office of the Special Counsel.


Judge Emmet G. Sullivan

As The Hill notes, Sullivan dinged federal prosecutors in the trial of former Sen. Ted Stevens (R-AK) for misconduct in failing to turn over exculpatory evidence.

The development has generated a significant buzz in conservative circles, with the implication being that perhaps Flynn might not have pleaded guilty in light of certain evidence.

Judge Andrew Napolitano addressed Sullivans decision on Tuesday, saying The judge on his own, not in response to any application from General Flynns lawyers says, By the way, I want all exculpatory evidence, evidence that could help Flynn or hurt the government turned over to Flynns lawyers.

Why would he we want that after General Flynn has already pleaded guilty? That is unheard of. He must suspect a defect in the guilty plea. Meaning, he must have reason to believe that General Flynn pleaded guilty for some reason other than guilt.

Judicial Watch Asks What Is The FBI Hiding In Its War To Protect Comey? "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

By Tom Fitton

As the James Comey saga continues to unfold, the James Comey legend continues to unravel. The more we learn about his involvement in the deep states illicit targeting of President Trump, the more reason the American people have to question both his motives and his management as director of the FBI, the now-disgraced agency he headed before Trump fired him on May 16, 2017. Comey has left a trail of suspicious activities in his wake.

Comey now looms large over a burgeoning constitutional crisis that could soon overshadow Watergate at its worst. To deepen the crisis even further, it now appears some of Comeys former FBI and Justice Department colleagues continue to protect him from accountability.

Three suspicious activities stand out, all intertwined: The so-called Comey Memos, Comeys controversial testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee and Comeys book deal.

After Comey was fired by President Trump on May 9, 2017, he arranged to give the New York Times a Feb. 14, 2017 memorandum he had written about a one-on-one conversation with Trump regarding former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn. The New York Times published a report about the memo on May 16, 2017. Special Counsel Robert Mueller was appointed the following day.

On June 8, 2017, Comey testified under oath before the U.S. Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, where he stated he authored as many as nine such memos. Regarding the Flynn memo, Comey admitted: I asked a friend of mine to share the content of the memo with a reporter [for The New York Times]. I didnt do it myself for a variety of reasons, but I asked him to because I thought that might prompt the appointment of a special counsel. 

Comey also testified about President Trumps firing of him, and he detailed multiple conversations with President Trump, during which Comey confirmed he told President Trump three times that he was not a target of investigation. Judicial Watch is...

Russia Warns US To Stop Playing With Fire In Syria, Immediately Leave Area It Controls "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

Is Russia Using Weapons Developed with Extraterrestrial Help in Syria Civil War?

By Zero Hedge

Two weeks after a US B-52 strike killed scores of Russian mercenaries in Syria, which according to Bloomberg and Reuters were are as many as 200, while Russia said no more than 5 Russians were killed in the attack then promptly refused to discuss the embarrassing topic further, Moscow has clearly not forgotten this latest and most serious escalation in the 7-year-old proxy war, and on Monday Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov warned the Trump administration not to play with fire as he lashed out at the U.S. over what he described as its provocative support for autonomy-seeking Kurds in Syria, while urging US troops in the area of Al-Tanf to leave immediately.

Speaking to a Moscow audience at the Valdai Club conference on the Middle East, Lavrov said that US troops must immediately cease operations in the Southern Syria area of Al-Tanf, adding that he once again calls on our American colleagues not to play with fire and measure their steps proceeding not from immediate needs of todays political environment, but rather from long-term interests of the Syrian people and of all peoples of this region, including the Kurds, of course, the Russian top diplomat was quoted as saying by TASS News Agency.

The Big Pharma Family that Brought Us the Opioid Crisis "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

Were not talking El Chapo or any of his drug-running buddies. Were talking about the mega-billionaire family behind one of Americas most profitable drug-industry empires, the privately held Purdue Pharma.

By Sam Pizzigati

If the devil wears Prada, what do Americas most destructive drug pushers wear? They wear smiles. The drug pushers we have in mind here have caused hundreds of thousands of deaths, enough fatalities to decrease overall U.S. life expectancy at birth for the last two years running. Yet no police SWAT teams have pounded down any doors hunting these drug pushers down.

These particular drug pushers have devastated millions of families across the United States. Yet some of Americas most honorable institutions, outfits ranging from Yale University to the Metropolitan Museum of Art, have spent decades lauding their philanthropic generosity and benevolence.

Were obviously not talking El Chapo or any of his drug-running buddies here. Were talking about the mega-billionaire family behind one of Americas most profitable drug-industry empires, the privately held Purdue Pharma.

Last week, flacks at Purdue announced that the company will no longer be flooding doctors offices with sales representatives hawking OxyContin, the now-notorious opioid painkiller. This move may be the closest admission of guilt we will ever see from Purdue Pharma or the patriarchs of the Sackler family that gave it birth.

The roots of Purdues criminal profiteering, as Patrick Radden Keefe has chillingly related in the New Yorker, stretch all the way back to three brothers in mid-20th century Brooklyn. All three Arthur, Mortimer, and Raymond Sackler became doctors. All three had an entrepreneurial bent. Arthur had entrepreneurial genius.

Their Objective Is To Create Fear "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

There is a famous quote by George Santayana that has many variants: Those who cannot learn from history are doomed to repeat it. There is another quote atributed to the Spanish philosopher that is equally appropriate: Fanaticism consists in redoubling your efforts when you have forgotten your aim.

However, the larger spiritual lesson should be, when you abandon the pursuit of balance and common sense, you inevitably end up spiraling to an extreme of duality. It matters not who claims to have the moral high ground. Those who make themselves judge and jury to weed out the devil, often end up becoming demonic themselves in their fanatical pursuit of justice. We are seeing this history repeat itself within the Social Justice Warrior movment. The social wheel of karma continues to turn when those who were once perceived as victims become the new victimizers. And as the wheel of karma turns, history repeats itself.

Yellowstone earthquake swarm in the same area as last summers Maple Creek swarm "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

By The Watchers

Another seismic swarm is taking place at Yellowstone National Park since February 8, 2018. The swarm started with just a few events per day and intensified on February 15. Earthquake swarms like this account for more than 50% of the seismic activity at Yellowstone, the Yellowstone Volcano Observatory said, adding that no volcanic activity has occurred from any past such events.

The location of the swarm is approximately the same as the last summers Maple Creek swarm, which included about 2 400 earthquakes during June September 2017.

In fact, the current swarm may be just a continuation of the Maple Creek swarm, given the ongoing but sporadic seismicity in the area over the past several months, YVO scientists said.

Close-up view of seismicity associated with the current swarm (red circles) compared to locations of the 2017 Maple Creek swarm (gray circles). YMC is the closest seismic station to the seismicity. Credit: USGS

The largest earthquake so far is M2.9 on February 18, followed bt M2.7 on February 21. More than 230 quakes were registered so far, all at about 8 km (5 miles) beneath the surface.

Earthquake swarms reflect changes in stress along small faults beneath the surface, and generally are caused by two processes: large-scale tectonic forces, and pressure changes beneath the surface due to accumulation and/or withdrawal of fluids (magma, water, and/or gas).

The area of the current swarm is subject to both processes, YVO explains. The largest historic earthquake in the region, the 1959 M7.3 Hebgen Lake event, was due to faulting that has its ultimate cause in the fact that the western United States i...

The End of (Artificial) Stability "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

The central banks'/states' power to maintain a permanent bull market in stocks and bonds is eroding.
There is nothing natural about the stability of the past 9 years. The bullish trends in risk assets are artificial constructs of central bank/state policies. As these policies are reduced or lose their effectiveness, the era of artificial stability is coming to a close.
The 9-year run of Bull-trend stability is ending as a result of a confluence of macro dynamics:
1. Central banks are under pressure to reduce, end or reverse their unprecedented monetary stimulus, and the consequences are unpredictable, given the market's reliance on the certainty that "central banks have our back" is ending.
2. Interest rates / bond yields may well plummet in a global recession, but if we look at a 50-year chart of interest rates, we see a saucer-shaped bottoming in play. Technician Louise Yamada has been discussing the tendency of interest rates/bond yields to trace out a multi-year saucer bottom for over a decade, and we can now discern this.

Elinor Ostrom's Rules for Radicals "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

Elinor Ostrom was the first woman to win the Nobel Prize for Economics. Her theorising of the commons has been celebrated as groundbreaking and opening the way for non-capitalist economic alternatives, yet, many radicals know little about her. This book redresses this, revealing the indispensability of her work for green politics, left economics and radical democracy.

Ostrom has often been viewed as a conservative or managerial thinker; but Derek Walls analysis of her work reveals a how it is invaluable for developing a left political programme in the twenty-first century. Central to Ostroms work was the move beyond panaceas; transforming institutions to widen participation, promote diversity and favour cooperation over competition. She regularly challenged academia as individualist, narrow and elitist and promoted a radical take on education, based on participation. Her investigations into how we share finite resources has radical implications for the Green movement and her rubric for a functioning collective ownership is highly relevant in order in achieving radical social change.

He will interpret the relevance of this finding in the context of private capital structure and investment decision making, as well as public tax and regulatory treatment of co-operatives.

What is MK-ULTRA? "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

mkultra-deepstate-cia-mind-control-program

The rundown on this CIA Mind Control program that you need to know about.

Certain people will automatically call you a Conspiracy Theorist when they hear words like Deep State or Secret CIA Operation. This is by design and it plays right into why its important for you to educate yourself on this topic.

The MKULTRA program is a stain on our history that needs to be told from generation to generation. The proof of its existence was nearly all destroyed by Richard Helm, Head of the CIA, while the Watergate scandal was unfolding. That is why it is rarely talked about and you wont find it in your History books.

Several thousand documents have been declassified and made public through FOIA. These documents are available in the CIAs online library.

Some of which were released as recently as December 2016, after Donald Trump had won the Presidency.

What is MK-Ultra?

The United States was determined to figure out how to enslave someones mind in order to have them carry out nefarious acts upon receiving a trigger such as a verbal command or seeing an image.

The movie Manchurian Candidate is nearly entirely based on MK-Ultra. To put it simply, it is trauma based mind control carried out by the CIA.

MK-Ultra is often downplayed as just a CIA experiment on the effects of LSD but this couldnt be further from the truth. Its also important to note that the people subjected to this brutal, evil and inhumane treatment were unwilling participants.

How does MK-Ultra work?

They essentially put people, including children, through so much trauma that they retreat into different areas of their brain in order to compartmentalize the trauma that they are enduring.

Some examples of this trauma include: psychological and paralytic drugs, torture, rape, electroshock, sensory deprivation, ritualistic and occult like behavior. This is when the programming occurs.

After they get the individual into the desired state of mind, they are able to give them orders, operations, and a...

The UKs tight labour market and zero hours contracts "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

After five years of rapid increases, the number of people working on a zero hours contract has flat-lined in the UK over the past year. A tighter labour market may not yet be delivering increases in real pay, but it is slowly reshaping the type of work that we do for the better.

Its also welcome that todays employment statistics show that its not just the use of zero hours contracts (ZHCs) that has plateaued the numbers of people working as self-employed, part-time and as agency workers have all stopped rising over recent months.

But atypical employment is still too high. There are over 900,000 people working on a ZHCand over 800,000 people working as agency workers (up 25 per cent compared to pre-crisis levels). Part-time work is also elevated, accounting for a notably larger share of employment than it did before the crisis.

With all of these forms of work there will be an array of experiences for some, atypical work is a good way to spend a semi-retirement or to grab some extra hours between university terms. For others, however, this work is less positive recent Resolution Foundation research found that over a quarter of men working in low-paid part-time work wanted to work more hours than they currently did.

What of ZHC workers? Who are they and how do they feel about the hours they work? Well, today the ONS has published a suite of statistics focusing particularly on zero-hours contract workers. Newly buried in the big quarterly data release these fascinating numbers are now easy to miss, so it seems worthwhile to spell out some of the most important findings from todays data deluge.

Younger, and older, people are more likely to be on zero-hours contracts

The share of people working on a ZHC is much higher among those aged between 16 and 24 than any other age group. 1 in 12 people in work aged under 25 are on a ZHC, compared to around 1 in 50 of those aged between 25 and 64. This means that young people in work are 4 times more likely to be on a ZHC than older working-age adults.

Are mark-ups rising? "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

In a new Stigler Center working paper, I) challenge this explanation by showing that public-firm market power has not substantially increased in recent decades. Using financial statement data from public firm filings and closely following De Loecker and Eeckhout (2017)s methodology, I calculate markupsprices over marginal costsfor the universe of non-utility, non-financial US public firms. Aggregating these markup estimates to annual estimates, I find that public firm markups increased only modestly since the 1980s. Moreover, this increase is within historical variationmeasured markups have increased from 1980-2010 as much as they have decreased from 1950-1980.

Why the disagreement? While De Loecker and Eeckhout (2017) use similar data sources and methods, I argue that they do not use the best accounting measure of variable cost.

Senate Grants A $1 Billion Handout To Save The Failing Dairy Industry "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

Senate Grants A $1 Billion Handout To Save The Failing Dairy Industry

By Alanna Ketler

As the modern-day consumer continues to opt for plant-based alternatives to milk, the dairy industry is failing and is now relying on government handouts to survive. Ive said it before and Ill say it again, these times are changing!

Last week, the United States senate signed a budget agreement to grant a whopping $1 Billion to the dairy and livestock industries. These funds allocated will be used for programs that are designed to help the dairy industry recover from a long-time slump in dairy prices. The industry has been affected by a number of different factors which include consumer habits and lifestyle.

Over the past several years, we have seen Americans opting towards plant-based alternatives. While we dont know exactly why, we can speculate that it has to do with the growing awareness of the horrors that take place on factory farms, the environmental implications, and more evidence that pasteurized milk from cows is making us sick. Whatever the reason the dairy industry is failing.

In 2016, dairy farmers across the nation dumped 43 million gallons of unsold milk into manure lagoons, fields and into animal feed. Last year, the surplus of milk hit 78 million gallons as dairy sales have been consistently on the decline. We have seen some larger dairy companies try to adapt to the changing consumer demands, such as Elmhurst Dairy, which has shifted its gears to nut milks, completely dropping dairy after 90 years.

How Your DNA is Affected by Quantum Intelligence "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

By Christina Sarich

Yes, you can change your DNA, but Quantum Intelligence alters it from a more profound (subtle yet powerful) energetic level that is measurable and real. Once we understand how Quantum Intelligence works, we can more easily help the process of altering our DNA along to achieve greater health, happiness, and remarkable spiritual transformation. Like a potter creating a masterwork, we can also change our bodies and minds with the help of a few simple tools.

With all the talk of altering our DNA, sometimes it is good to understand exactly how this process might work, from both a physical and a non-physical perspective.

The ability to influence our DNA is now undeniable, both cellular biologists, and geneticists alike are beginning to understand epi-genetic interplay, a Greek term meaning beyond genetics.

Bruce Lipton, and others have made it clear that we can alter heritable traits in our gene expression that do not involve the underlying DNA sequence. We change the phenotype without changing the genotype. But this single change causes a host of natural and phenomenal changes in the human body and mind.

At least three systems are involved in altering our DNA from a purely physical standpoint: DNA methylation, histone modification and non-coding RNA (ncRNA)-associated gene silencing, but these are not the only methods of gene alteration.

However, the founder of the Heart Math Institute, Doc Childre offers his own theory of how DNA is altered. It encapsulates the same understanding of DNA programming that Johanna Bassols received in a spiritual transmissionthat the heart must become involved.

Childre postulated that an energetic connection or coupling of information occurs between the DNA in cells and higher dimensional structures the higher self or spirit.

Brazil economic activity surges, but "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

Brazilian flagship social welfare programs like Brasil Sem Misria and Bolsa Famlia, have brought millions out of poverty, but reforming such initiatives would cap government spending, analysts say [Xinhua]


The Brazilian Central Bank (Banco Central do Brasil) said this week that economic activity has surged in the country, reaching a pace that was both unexpected and the fastest in four years.

The Banks economic activity index jumped 1.41 per cent on a seasonally adjusted basis, its data showed. This is welcome news to markets which on Monday received news that the government was abandoning efforts to pass a major reform of the social security system which creditors have cited as necessary to fiscal reform.

Coupled with a surge in consumer spending on the back of lowered interests rates, an inflation rate that has been brought under control within Central Bank limits, and the 1.04 increase in economic activity between 2016 and 2017, Brazil appears to have well emerged out of its three-year recession.

The International Monetary Fund in January said that the economic recovery is gaining strength, spurred by private consumption and investment.

It listed as a significant positive marker the fall of inflation from two digits to 3 per cent after heavy intervention from the Central Bank.

However, its latest forecast for growth in Brazil is an upward revised 1.9 per cent (from 1.5) in 2018 and 2.1 per cent in 2019.

This is in line with Brazilian economic predictions which state that growth over the next two years will be at the fastest pace since 2013.

Brazilian President Michel Temer has taken credit for much of the economic revival, citing his reform measures since he took office two years ago.

However, his popularity among the population is extremely low and he is unlikely to remain as president after the October 2018 elections.

But his decision to withdraw efforts to have Congress vote on a bill to revamp the pension system has left some analysts worried that government spending will still be too large to put a dent in the budget deficit, particularly since tax revenues do not fill enough of the coffers.

According to the Central Bank, th...

Legal Money Illusion "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

The state of Virginia is raising the financial threshold for defining a theft as a felony for the first time in almost four decades. Virginias experience highlights a peculiarity of American criminal law that results in petty criminals in many states being charged and punished as if they were big-time criminals.

For property crimes such as theft or vandalism, states set financial thresholds that are intended to differentiate low-level crimes chargeable as misdemeanors from more serious offenses chargeable as felonies. In Virginia, the legislature in 1980 defined theft as a felony if the property stolen was worth more than $200. Because of inflation, more and more petty thefts that were originally defined as misdemeanors became felonies with each subsequent year. In 2017, someone who shoplifted a $240 pair of eyeglasses that would have cost only $80 in 1980 would be charged as a felon even though that was not the laws original intent. A felony charge can result in a petty criminal receiving a prison term, being barred from many occupations and in some states losing the right to vote.

Virginia is raising its felony standard to $500.

That is from Keith Humphreys at WaPo, note that Alaska uses indexing.

The Mysterious Lost Underground Civilization of the Grand Canyon "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

By Brent Swancer

Lying within the U.S. state of Arizona is one of the most majestic natural wonders of our planet, the Grand Canyon. Carved over hundreds of millions of years by the Colorado River and measuring 277 miles (446 km) long, up to 18 miles (29 km) wide, the Grand Canyon is a major natural phenomenon, but it is also a place of deep historical mysteries and oddities as well. One of the most unusual of these is the claim that somewhere under the earth here once ruled an advanced civilization with unknown origins and who have become lost to history, which supposedly inhabited a complex cave and cavern system that they left behind to sow bafflement and speculation with their passing. It is a very curious, far-out case that, if real, could shake our historical perceptions to the core.

The whole bizarre tale began with a curious article that appeared right on the front page of the April 5, 1909 edition of the Arizona Gazette, which gave a spectacular account from two alleged Smithsonian-funded archaeologists, a Prof. S. A. Jordan and G.E. Kinkaid, who claimed to have found deep within the bowels of the earth in the Marble Canyon region of the Grand Canyon a vast cavern system with evidence of some ancient lost civilization.

The Grand Canyon

The two men were reportedly funded by Smithsonians Department of Anthropology, and claimed that they had found the entrance to the mysterious cavern system lying around 1,500 feet down the wall of a sheer cliff in a remote, undisclosed area. The area was described as being nearly inaccessible and surrounded by desolate, forbidding wilderness, and the more vocal Kincaid would say in his account of the discovery of the entrance and further study of it thus:

First, I would impress that the cavern is nearly inaccessible. The entrance is 1,486 feet dow...

Seeking Life but Finding Death: Deadly Chinese Elixirs of Immortality "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

By Wu Mingren

The elixir of immortality (known also as the elixir of life) is a legendary substance found in many ancient cultures. This elixir is expected to grant eternal life to the person who consumes it. The history of China is filled with emperors and other important men who sought to live forever, but instead died an untimely death for their ambitions.

These elites would normally patronize Taoist alchemists, who would provide them with some sort of substance that would supposedly give them immortality. The ingestion of such elixirs, however, certainly did not allow them to live forever. In many cases the elixirs, which contain extremely poisonous elements, (ironically) were responsible for the deaths of those who consumed them.

Woodcut illustration of Putting the miraculous elixir on the tripod from Xingming guizhi (Pointers on Spiritual Nature and Bodily Life) by Yi Zhenren, a Daoist text on internal alchemy published in 1615. (Wellcome Images/ CC BY 4.0 )

Change and the Elixir of Immortality

The elixir of immortality is a concept that can be found in Taoist mythology. One of the best-known stories about this elixir is that of Change, a Chinese lunar deity. According to Chinese folklore, Change was the wife of Hou Yi, the legendary archer who shot down nine of the 10 suns that were burning the earth. As a reward, Hou Yi was granted the elixir of immortality.

Although there are variations as to what happened next, the story ends with Change drinking the elixir herself, and, as a result, floating to the moon. One of the companions of Change in her new residence is the Moon Rabbit (known also as the Jade Rabbit), which some say makes the elixir of immortality.

Puma Punku: Evidence Of Laser-Like Tools Used By Ancient Civilizations? "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

By Ancient Code

Located 45 miles west of La Paz high in the Andes mountains, lie the mystifying ancient ruins of Puma Punku.

The megalithic stones found there are considered among the largest on the planet. Some boulders measure up to 26 feet long and weighing more than 100 tons each.

Puma Punku is a massive temple complex part of the Tiwanaku Site near Tiwanaku, Bolivia.

Tiwanaku is vital in Incan legends since it is believed to be the site where the world was created by the Gods.

Puma Punku, in turn, means The Door of the Puma.

As noted by the Andean specialist, Binghamton University Anthropology professor W. H. Isbell,  a radiocarbon date was obtained from organic material from lowermost and oldest layer of mound-fill forming the Puma Punku. This segment was deposited during the first of three construction epochs and dates the initial construction of the Puma Punku at 1510 25 B.P.

Puma Punku is so unusual in the way that it was constructed, shaped and positioned, that many scholars consider it is the most intriguing ancient site on the planet.

Mainstream experts believe the blocks found at Puma Punku were formed by hand with primitive stone tools.

However, some researchers point to the intricate stonework as evidence of the use of advanced precision technology.

How could primitive people, living thousands of years ago, have produced such flawless stonework, without access to any form of technology? Did they use sticks and stones?

Or, is it possible that the ancient constructors of Puma Punku manufactured the megalithic stones with advanced technology?

Perhaps with the use of precision tools that could have facilitated them to achieve these marvels of engineering and construction, displaying clean cuts, and precise angles.

If we look at the stones at Puma Punku carefully, you can see amazing intricate s...

You Need To Hear These FAA Tapes From That Oregon UFO Incident That Sent F-15s Scrambling

New evidence offers great detail of the bizarre event and provides unprecedented insight into how such a unique incident is dealt with in real time.

By Tyler Rogoway

Last November, The War Zone posted an exclusive story detailing a bizarre incident involving an unidentified aircraft that transited the skies of the Pacific Northwest in the early evening of October 25th, 2017. What started as a radar target moving at very high speed over Northern California turned into a series of eyewitness accounts made by nearby airline pilots traveling northward over Oregon. Even F-15 fighters were launched to intercept the mysterious intruder that quickly became invisible to radar.

Now, through the Freedom of Information Act, we present what could be one of the most insightful instances of official documentation surrounding such an encounter that had already been confirmed to have occurred by both the FAA and the USAF. These materials include fascinating audio recordings of radio transmissions and phone calls made as the incident was unfolding, as well as pilot interviews, and conversations between FAA officials made in the aftermath of the highly peculiar incident.

For proper context, make sure to first read our original post linked here detailing the event, how our report came to be in the first place, as well as the rare confirmations as to its authenticity from both the FAA and the USAF. Below is also a short explainer video that will give you a basic overview of the incident.

Fast forward three months later, and now we have so much more evidence that ad...

Benjamin Fulford: Florida school shooting "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

By Benjamin Fulford

Hi Ben,

I think if you were to look into it, youll find as I have that the whole shooting thing in Florida was a hoax, and was another police drill just like Sandy Hook.

If you go through the hundreds of photos taken, not one shows any bodies, blood, bullets, bullet holes, empty cases, nothing, nada.  Also, CNN interviewed a kid who said he was in the hall with a couple of other kids when they heard the shooting, but they were locked out of the classroom and wondering which way to go.  The kid was not alarmed because they were all told that there was going to be a police drill and that the cops would be firing blanks . So its just as Sandy Hook, with a lot of actors.  And now the building is off-limits and to be torn down to cover up any evidencestandard agency protocol, leave nothing behind or in this case, lack of.

The school was also in a wealthy area, and you can believe most all those kids have iPods and such, but no photos of blood and gore?  How is that possible?

It is interesting what you stated about the school name being the same as the hospital Kennedy died in.

Love reading your stuff although I dont always believe it.  However, I have found over the years some of the way-out stuff is later revealed to be true.

I really miss being in Japan, but what I miss is the way it was in the early 60s.

Good work, Ben, and stay safe,
CS


Hi CS,
Yes, I too think it was propaganda street theater.  However, the message this time seems to have been intended to scare Jews and the people behind the Kennedy assassination.

Manhattan land prices "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

Using vacant land sales, we construct a land values index for Manhattan from 1950 to 2014. We find three major cycles (19501977, 1977 to 1993, and 1993 to 2009) with land values reaching their nadir in 1977, just after the citys fiscal crisis. Overall, we find the average annual real growth rate to be 5.5%. Since 1993, land prices have risen quite dramatically, and much faster than population or employment growth, at an average annual rate of 15.8%, suggesting that barriers to entry in real estate development are causing prices to rise faster than other measures of local well-being. Further, we estimate the entire amount of developable land on Manhattan in 2014 was worth approximately $1.74 trillion. This would suggest an average annual return of about 6.4% since the island was first inhabited by Dutch settlers in 1626.

Who is Richard Doty?

Mirage Men is a documentary released in 2013 that tells the story of Richard Doty, a retired special agent with the Air Force Office of Special Investigations (AFOSI). Dotys job with AFOSI was to be a full-time liar, spreading disinformation and causing mass confusion within the UFO community, ruining a few lives along the way. This is a factual case study of our own government systematically and blatantly lying to us regarding the UFO phenomenon. Furthermore, it explains the truth behind all the UFO sightings that have occurred in America since WW2, being that it was the UAV/drone program. (source)

Diseases With Unknown Etiology Trace Back To Mass Vaccination Against Influenza in 1976 "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

By James Lyons-Weiler via The World Mercury Project

Crohns. Lupus. Autism. ADHD. Food allergies. Celiac disease. Sjgrens syndrome. Polymyalgia rheumatica. Multiple sclerosis. Anklyosing spondylitis. Type 1 diabetes. Vasculitis. Peripheral neuropathy. The list goes on, and on, and on. We are being increasingly diagnosed with these conditions and diseases of unknown origin, and science has very little to say why would autoimmune diseases and mysterious diseases of inflammation be so prevalent? When did this increase start?

As an observer and participant in modern biomedical research, and a lover of deep history, I tend to focus not on the immediate or last few years, but look for trends of accumulating risk over longer periods of time. Seeking an answer to the question of when, I used Pubmed to estimate, per yer, the number of studies and papers discussing diseases and conditions of unknown origin. I search for the term unknown causes, and also for the term journal to get some idea of the percentage of studies, papers and editorials discussing disease of unknown causes. I had no idea what to expect.

Looking at a trend of topics per year, one has to correct for some estimate of the total number of articles published, because a mere count would, in part, reflect the overall trend in the explosion of total articles published. I chose as my control term the word journal, because many titles of publications include that term (e.g., Journal of Nephrology). Here is the control result, which is not surprising, and completely expected:

Again, this merely reflects the trend in the increase in publications in Pubmed, and so using it would provide a relative control for that trend.

Next I searched for Unknown Causes, and calculated the number of articles citing unknown causes per 10,000 articles (again, relative denominator term).

What I found is shocking. Here is a graph of the number of articles per...

Net neutrality supporters plan Internet-wide day of action on Feb 27 as FCC repeal enters Federal Register "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE, February 20, 2018
Contact: Evan Greer, 978-852-6457, press@fightforthefuture.org

Publication of the rules starts clock on window of 60 legislative days to pass Senate CRA resolution to block the repeal. Operation: #OneMoreVote day of action will flood Senate with calls and emails to secure the final vote.

The FCCs resoundingly unpopular net neutrality repeal was published in the Federal Register this morning, February 22nd, which officially begins a countdown of 60 legislative days to pass a resolution to reverse the order. Net neutrality supporters and major web platforms like Reddit, Tumblr, Etsy, Medium, and GitHub have already planned Operation: #OneMoreVote, a major Internet-wide day of action, for next Tuesday, February 27, to secure the final vote needed to pass the Congressional Review Act (CRA) in the Senate.

The day of action is being organized by Fight for the Future, Demand Progress, and Free Press Action Fund, the groups behind BattleForTheNet.com and many of the largest online protests in history. Internet users, small businesses, online communities, public interest groups and popular websites will harness their reach to flood lawmakers with calls, emails and tweets, and constituent meetings in search of the final vote needed to pass a Congressional Review Act (CRA) resolution that would block the FCCs unpopular repeal of net neutrality protections.

Now its officially go time, and the Internet is gearing up for a hell of a fight, said Evan Greer, campaign director of Fight for the Future. The CRA is the clearest path to restore net neutrality protections that never should have been taken away in the first place. A vote is imminent, and every senator needs to decide right now whether theyre going to listen to their constituents or go...

Threat to crops and carcinogenic: Farmers welcome move to restrict glyphosate use "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

The AP governments order restricting the use of herbicides will also check the illegal use of BT cotton.

By TNM

In a significant move to prevent the indiscriminate use of herbicides, the Andhra Pradesh Government has restricted the use of herbicides, especially glyphosate, in agriculture.

The order was passed after the Special Commissioner of Agriculture of the state, in a letter to the government, pointed out that the injudicious use of herbicides particularly non-selective herbicides like glyphosate in agricultural and horticultural ecosystems leads to serious implications in many cultivated crops in Andhra Pradesh.

According to the order, the herbicides cannot be used in any of the crops in the Kharif season, i.e. June to November. The approval of the Central Insecticides Board & Registration Committee is mandatory to recommend/procure/store/use any agro chemical, as per the Insecticide Act, 1968.

The herbicides specified in the order can be used in non-cropped areas, or during the months of December to May, but only with specific recommendations by authorised personnel.

Additionally, all retailers in Andhra Pradesh have been directed to sell only the recommended quantity of herbicide to be used during non-crop growth season in non-cropped areas.

Farmers have also been discouraged from cultivation of illegal Herbicide Tolerant (HT) crop varieties to prevent the use of non-selective herbicides.

Speaking to TNM, G Vinaichand, Additional Director of Agriculture, and Director, Agriculture Technology Management Agency (ATMA, Andhra Pradesh), said that the decision was taken after examining random samples from some seed processing units.

Check on illegal use of BT cotton

Environment and agriculture activists have lauded the move saying it will not only help control the excessive use of herbicides but also check illegal cultivation of BT cotton.

It is a welcome move. It addresses the ill-effects of glyphosate as well the fact that it is being illegally used on illegally cultivated HT cotton, said Kavitha Kuruganti, national co-convenor of the Alliance for Sustainable & Holistic Agriculture (ASHA).

Glyphosate and other weedicides are very problematic in two ways, explained Kiran Kumar Vissa of the Rythu Swarajya Vedika, an organisation of non-profits focused on agriculture.
