The Onward March of the Police State: Now at the Local Level "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

The Onward March of the Police State: Now at the Local Level

Statement from The Rutherford Institute Regarding Government Lockdown of Charlottesville in Advance of Aug. 12 Anniversary

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. While it is appropriate that the government and the public work together to ensure that the tragedies of August 12, 2017, are not repeated, locking down the community and enacting measures tantamount to martial law without any credible evidence warranting such extreme measures is not an acceptable solution.
In the absence of any publicized information about credible threats to public safety surrounding the upcoming one-year anniversary of the events of August 12, The Rutherford Institute has grave concerns about 1) the City of Charlottesvilles decision to enact severe lockdown security measures in advance of the upcoming one-year anniversary of the August 12 events, 2) the process that resulted in the adoption of such measures, and 3) the impact they will have on the civil liberties of the residents of the community.  

These measures not only directly limit the publics freedom, but do so indirectly by imposing a chilling effect upon civil liberties. Moreover, these draconian police state measures are presumptuous in their expectation of civil unrest, intentionally alarming, and utterly lacking in transparency.

A declared state of emergency: By declaring a state of emergency and enacting heightened security measures for August 10 through 12, without providing any specific information as to credible threats that might warrant such extreme actions, the City has cast a shroud around the area that makes it akin to a community under martial law. 
Massive police presence: The City has provided no credible justification to the public for the massive influx of police and national guard into the area for those days, reported to be more than 1,000 in number. Barring any credible threat, this overwhelming law enforcement and military presence is unnecessarily intimidating and may deter citizens from lawfully exercising their First Amendment rights to expression and assembly, while also contributing to heightened tensions.

Restricted security area: While the City has stated its desire to respect citizens rights to freedom of speech and to peacefully assemble, the lockdown measures being enacted (restricting access to the Downtown Mall, establishing police checkpoints, limiting movement, prohibiting certain items and articles of clothing) appear to contradict the Citys stated commitment, while sending mixed messages about the Citys objectives. Under the Constitution, public places such as those deemed a security area are presumptively open to citizens to exercise their rights of expression and the freedom to come and go as they please, yet the measures planned by the City will significantly limit those rig...

Nunes Interrupted Incessantly by Hannity, 2333 "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

This is a paid sponsorship by: Nobel Gold. Go to Trumpcoin2020.com and use the code Coin to save $5 per coin, or text Coin to 511511 Good morning, Im still reporting on: Nunes Interrupted Incessantly by Hannity, 2333 Synopsis: Sponsored by Nobel Gold. Go to Trumpcoin2020.com and use the code Coin to save $5 per coin, or text Coin to 511511. Good morning. Im still reporting on the coup. I would have loved to make this report about the latest insiders view of the coup from the undisputed world authority on that subject, House Intel Chairman Devin Nunes. However, it is not. Nunes got constantly sidetracked Fox Host Sean Hannitys incessant interruptions. [insert] Sean, quit interrupting. You interrupted him 12 seconds into what he was starting to say. Dont you have anyone around you who will tell you the truth? Thats what friends are for. [insert] Sean, there you go again. We could have been way on down the road by now, but you interrupted him just 55 seconds later. This is obvious to everyone else but you: you are messing up his train of thought. Trust me, Im not the only one who sees this. [insert] He didnt answer either of your questions and got totally derailed on detail we didnt need to hear totally because you derailed him. [insert] Sean, only 42 seconds since the last interruption. Give Nunes a chance. He is the most articulate spokesperson on our team on the House Intel Committee. Give him a chance to get something out. [insert] Sean - Only 17 seconds since your last interruption. Hes trying to get his main point out, but you wont let him because you are trying to show off how much you know about this. All of us see this. We all know it and we are wondering why cant someone you respect tell you to just shut up. [insert] Nunes, being the polite guy that he is, gives up on wherever he was trying to go and now attempts to answer your latest question. [insert] Secondly what? Well never know. You say you are running out of time, then you burn up nearly all of that time framing your next question. [insert] Oh pleeeeze! [insert] Nunes cant give you the soundbite you are painfully reaching for that Shiftless Schiff colluded with the Russians too. Nunes cant say that! Hes got to work with him. Finally Nunes tries to make one very valid take away point from this interview, but he only makes it by totally ignoring your last question, which, incidentally took up 38 seconds of a 245 seconds available for real information transfer in this segment. [insert] In the end, Im still not sure why Bruce Ohr is now becoming more important, and I think thats the main thing that Nunes was trying to get across. Ohr was the former associate deputy Attorney General and former Director of the Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force and husband of Nellie Ohr, who was working for Fusion GPS, who was ultimately being paid by the DNC and Clinton campaign. Apparently Nunes wanted to say that Bruce Ohr was a key player in the fa......

Is There Enough of America Left To Be Saved? "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

Is There Enough of America Left To Be Saved?

Paul Craig Roberts

As many readers of this website have noticed, the United States has lost its character and become a dysfunctional society. In place of a largely homogeneous population once united in veneration of the Constitution, there exists today massive diversity which Identity Politics has used to disunite the population into seperate interest groups.

No clause or article of the Constitution, nor the Bill of Rights, is safe. The George W. Bush and Obama regimes destroyed two of the most important protections of civil libertyhabeas corpus and due process. Bush declared indefinite imprisonment on suspicion alone without evidence or trial. Obama declared execution of US citizens on accusation alone without due process. The Justice (sic) Department wrote legal memos justifying torture, thus destroying the constitutional protection against self-incrimination. One of the authors of the memos is now a professor of law at UC Berkeley. The other is now a federal judge, indications that respect for the Constitution and enforcement of US and international laws against torture is fading in law schools and the federal judiciary.

A third important protection of civil libertyfreedom of speech which is necessary for the discovery of truth and to serve justiceis being destroyed. Apple, Google/Facebook, Twitter, Spotify, university speech codes, legislation against protesting Israels atrocities against Palestinians, and the presstitute media that has been turned into a propaganda organ in behalf of vested interests are all actively involved in protecting lies against truth.

Glenn Greenwald reported that the single greatest threat to free speech in the West  and in the U.S. is the coordinated, growing campaign to outlaw and punish those who advocate for, or participate in, activism to end the Israeli occupation of Palestine. https://theintercept.com/2016/02/16/greatest-threat-to-free-speech-in-the-west-criminalizing-activism-against-israeli-occupation/

The Second Amendment, which was placed in the Constitution as a defense against oppression by government, is under attack by well financed organizations in service to the police state with the intention of disarming the population. Many attentive Americans are convinced that mass shootings are staged or pretended in order to create public support for repealing the Second Amendment. Clearly the amount of effort expended against the Second Amendment is disproportional to the number of shooting deaths as compared to other causes of deaths. Why this one cause of deaths has so many well financed and politically active organizations compared to...

Radical bookshop buys former bank "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

On 6 August October Books in Southampton completed the purchase of 189 Portswood Road which for many years had been a branch of NatWest Bank. This was made possible be a very successful campaign that with the support of the local community raised 487,800 through a combination of loan stock, crowd funding, personal loans and gifts, and a loan from Co-operative & Community Finance.

The new building is much bigger than the current shop, which is actually in the same street. October Books owns the freehold. The top floor of the building has already been sold to a private leaseholder and October Books will sell the first floor to The Society of St James, a local charity that supports homeless people. The ground floor will be used by the bookshop and the local community. The co-op is hoping that the necessary renovations will be completed in time to allow the bookshop to open in its new home in October, of course.

The RosemontLa Petite-Patrie borough of Montral, Canada, modified its by-laws to allow its residents and property owners to earn money for the use of their parking spaces by other individuals. The by-laws regulate peer-to-peer rental of driveways for parking, as well as homes and garages for storage, and yards for gardening. Previous restrictions prohibited such commercial activities in residential areas. The new regulations optimize the use of existing, privately-owned spaces through shared use.

The Pioneer project: finding the lost Einsteins "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

Silicon Valley has created a model for identifying and nurturing high-potential young companiesPioneer hopes to do much the same thing for high-potential people.

The group, which is being announced on Thursday, plans to use the internet-era tools of global communication and crowdsourcing to solicit and help select promising candidates in a variety of fields, along with evaluations by experts. Its goal is to put more science and less happenstance into the process of talent discovery and reach more people, wherever they are in the world.

Were trying to build a kind of search engine for finding great people with talent, ambition and potential, said Daniel Gross, 27, the groups founder

Selecting pioneers will begin with a monthlong online tournament. Candidates will submit their project ideas. Each week, the projects will be updated. The candidates will vote on each others projects, points will be awarded and there will be leader board. Subject experts will also vote, with their votes counting somewhat more than the candidates.

That is from Steve Lohr at The New York Times, with much more at the link.  Here is the account from Daniel Gross at Pioneer.  I am pleased and honored to be an (informal) advisor to this project.

If You Want More Capitalism, You Should Want More Socialism "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

What America Still Doesnt Understand About 21st Century Prosperity

Heres a funny, strange, inconvenient truth. If you want more capitalism, you should also want more socialism. Yes, really. Ill prove it, in just a second.

First, a tiny qualification. More capitalism doesnt mean bigger monopolies sending you bigger bills that make you have bigger panic attacks. It means quite the opposite. Better, truer, healthier capitalism: more of the innocuous, even fun, mom-and-pop kind, which made my favorite guitars and synthesizers, which keeps my neighborhood buzzing with restaurants, boutiques, clubs, and bars.

So: if you want more capitalism, the first thing you should want is more socialism. Dont believe me? Lets think about it. How capitalist is America, in the sense above? The answer is: not much. The Heritage Institutes Freedom Indexwhich we can think of as a pretty good proxy for how capitalist a society isputs it at 18th in the world. Below, for example, Denmark and Canada. Youre perfectly correct to say that the Heritage Institute is a libertarian thinktank, and this index measures a kind of idealized, no-holds-barred, free-market capitalism. And yet America doesnt even really score very highly on their definition of capitalism anymore. (That definition is something like capitalism in its idealized, romanticized form. As an art which most people can practice, at a small scale, and thus, live decent lives. Drycleaners, discos, plumbers.)

Think about this for a second. Both Denmark and Canada are more capitalist and more socialist than America, according to the logic above. How strange. A country can score highly on bothor neither. But do you see what it means? Theres an old myth. It goes like this. Capitalism is the opposite of socialism. If you want more capitalism, you have to want less socialism (and vice versa). But all this proves that the myth isnt true. It never was. Its a relic of Cold War thinkingbut the Cold War is over, and no one won. Russia and America are mirror images of each other collapsing into authoritarianismbut Ill get to that.

So America isnt really good at capitalismeven in the idealized sense capitalists want. But quite obviously, its not really good at socialism one, either. Do you see the weird paradox? America scores low on both capitalism and socialism, whereas Canada and Denmark score more highly on both capitalism and socialism. How can that be true? Its completely contrary to the mythology, oppositional binary thinking were so often taught to believe.

The truth, as it so often is, subtler. The tale above already tells us that capitalism isnt the opposite...

Are We at the End of the Future? "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

What Happens When to a World When Theres Nothing to Run Towards?

Heres a tiny question. Do you remember when we imagined the future as better? How do you think about the future now? If I had to put money on it, Id bet that you dont imagine it quite that way anymore. If you do think about it, Id wager it frightens you a littleat least if youre honest.

I wouldnt blame you. The world is in a grim place. Fascism, authoritarianism, and extremism are surging. Climate change is rampaging. Societies are fracturing. Economies are stagnant. From Trumpism to Brexit, the worlds most sophisticated societies are plunging into bizarre, gruesome self-inflicted catastrophepeople seem to be losing their minds, unable to cope with the pressure of it all.

I think that weve run out of the future. Maybe were even at the end of the future. And for me, at least, thats a danger signal, of a kind. That a relationship we dont even know we have with ourselves is breaking. To explain what I mean by that curious phrase, I want you to think about the idea of the future with me.

Modernitythe birth of freedom, democracy, reason, and so forthcreated two things which had never really existed before, yet which we take for granted today so deeply, that theyre completely invisible to us. Death and the future. Yet each one needs the other for the modern world not to fall apart. What do I mean?

Death: before the dawn of the modern age, people believedor at least told themselves they believedin heavens and hells and immortal souls. The fundamental belief of premodern civilization was everlasting lifeand so what most societies invested most heavily in, after war, were churches, clergy, monasteries, rituals and so on. But modernity, enlightenment, the age of reason, brought with it the novel, strangeand frighteningidea of death. When were gonewere gone. All of uskings and paupers alike. Sinners and saints. Life is a flicker of light between two eternal darknesses, etcetera. Death was a fundamentally new idea, belief, way of thinking, seeing. For example, only after World War II did we really have a philosophyexistentialismgrounded in the idea of inescapable mortality. You can believe in God todaybut you probably cant so easily believe the same immovable way that people did just a few centuries ago, because death hadnt been invented yet.

The opposite of death, to the modern mind, at least, isnt life its what life means: the future. Think back a millennium. Nobody had any real idea of a thing called the future. Mostly, people probably thought that life would go on tomorrow just as it had yesterday. Why would they think any differently? It had go on that way for millennia. Kings, serfs, pea...

Emails in 2016 between former British spy Christopher Steele and Justice Department official Bruce Ohr suggest Steele was deeply concerned about the legal status of a Putin-linked Russian oligarch, and at times seemed to be advocating on the oligarchs behalf, in the same time period Steele worked on collecting the Russia-related allegations against Donald Trump that came to be known as the Trump dossier. The emails show Steele and Ohr were in frequent contact, that they intermingled talk about Steeles research and the oligarchs affairs, and that Glenn Simpson, head of the dirt-digging group Fusion GPS that hired Steele to compile the dossier, was also part of the ongoing conversation.

PHOTOS: Net neutrality activists unleash new billboards to hold members of Congress accountable on resolution to overrule FCC "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: August 8, 2018
Contact: Evan Greer, 978-852-6456, press@fightforthefuture.org

New billboards in Nebraska slam Rep Jeff Fortenberry for putting ISPs ahead of constituents, while Colorado ads thank Rep Mike Coffman for defending net neutrality.

Today digital rights group Fight for the Future unleashed four new crowdfunded billboards across Nebraska targeting Representative Jeff Fortenberry (R-NE) for attempting to fool constituents by cosponsoring symbolic net neutrality legislation, which has no chance of passing this Congress, but refusing to sign on to the CRA resolution, which has already passed the Senate, and is the viable way for lawmakers to restore protections this year. The billboard notes that Fortenberry has taken nearly $100,000 in campaign contributions from telecom companies.

The group also unveiled a new billboard in Denver, CO thanking Representative Mike Coffman (R-CO) for showing political courage by becoming the first GOP member of the House to sign on to the discharge petition for the CRA. The billboard highlights an open letter signed by hundreds of Colorado small businesses, and thousands of businesses nationwide, calling on Congress to pass the CRA to restore net neutrality protections as quickly as possible. 

See PHOTOS of some of the billboards here: https://imgur.com/a/3iI7oCu

The five billboards come as members in the House of Representatives return to their home districts for the August congressional recess.

The CRA is the only measure that can restore meaningful net neutrality rules during this Congress. It recently passed the Senate in a historic bipartisan vote of 52-47, including support from GOP Senators Murkowski (AK), Collins (ME) and Kennedy (LA). Its companion in the House currently has 177 signers including Rep Coffman.

A new poll conducted by IMGE Insights shows that net neutrality will influence a majority of voters in the upcoming election cycle. Fight for the Future has promised to crowdfund billboards targeting lawmakers who sponsor alternative...

It is beyond honest dispute that the wars did not achieve what their organizers promised, no matter the party in power or the generals in command. Astonishingly expensive, strategically incoherent, sold by a shifting slate of senior officers and politicians and editorial-page hawks, the wars have continued in varied forms and under different rationales each and every year since passenger jets struck the World Trade Center in 2001. They continue today without an end in sight, reauthorized in Pentagon budgets almost as if distant war is a presumed government action.

Indias SENSEX breaks records "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

The Prime Minister Narendra Modi delivering his keynote speech, at the plenary session of the World Economic Forum, in Davos on January 23, 2018 [PMO, India]


Indias benchmark Bombay Stock Exchange SENSEX has continued to break records this week.

On Wednesday the 30-share exchange broke its record to reach 38,061 before settling just below the 38,000 mark. At press time Thursday it is at 38,012, marking the first time ever it has reached this level.

Stocks, primarily in banking, IT, capital goods, and oil and gas were given a boost by the International Monetary Funds report earlier this week which said that India is continuing on its track to maintaining its position as one of the worlds fastest growing economies.

On August 7, the IMF said:

Indias economy is picking up and growth prospects look brightpartly thanks to the implementation of recent policies, such as the nationwide goods and services tax. As one of the worlds fastest-growing economiesaccounting for about 15 percent of global growthIndias economy has helped to lift millions out of poverty.

This is music to Prime Minister Narendra Modis ears as he has been pushing to open India to the world, boost foreign investment, ease the process of doing business in India, and marketing the Made in India brand.

However, the IMF urged the government to raise wages, which are among the lowest compared to its BRICS partners, and to push through vital labor market reforms.

Nevertheless, given the increased foreign investment environment the IMF forecasts that GDP growth will be 7.3 per cent for 2018/19 and 7.5 per cent for the following year.

Carbon taxes and food security "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

By Tomoko Hasgawa, et.al. in Nature:

Food insecurity can be directly exacerbated by climate change due to crop-production-related impacts of warmer and drier conditions that are expected in important agricultural regions. However, efforts to mitigate climate change through comprehensive, economy-wide GHG emissions reductions may also negatively affect food security, due to indirect impacts on prices and supplies of key agricultural commodities. Here we conduct a multiple model assessment on the combined effects of climate change and climate mitigation efforts on agricultural commodity prices, dietary energy availability and the population at risk of hunger. A robust finding is that by 2050, stringent climate mitigation policy, if implemented evenly across all sectors and regions, would have a greater negative impact on global hunger and food consumption than the direct impacts of climate change. The negative impacts would be most prevalent in vulnerable, low-income regions such as sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia, where food security problems are already acute.

In other words, one needs to be very careful with a carbon tax.  For the pointer, I thank Charles Klingman.

Can White Liberalism Save America? "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

Why a Savior Complex Isnt a Substitute For a Democracy

Theres a certain question which keep occurring to me these days. Can white liberalism save America?

Now, by white liberals, I probably dont mean you, and I certainly dont mean the average reasonable person who happens to be white. SorryI dont mean to trick you. I just want to speak plainly. By white liberals I mean, to begin with, the ones with power. Who think of themselves as the good guys.

Its a certain kind of very American in-group. They have podcasts, columns, whole publications, affiliations, titles. They only ever talk about, and to, each other. They have Ivy League mannerisms, faux genteel understatement, grating sarcasm. The thing they fear most is alarmismeven while the house burns down. They appear not to have spent any time whatsoever reading anything but American history, so if you asked them who Truffaut or de Beauvoir was, or Habermas or Sen is, or even who Trent Reznor is or Jello Biafra was, theyd look at you blankly. They call themselves all kinds of things, from liberaltarian to centrist to liberalish to anti-Trump GOP!yet theyre all more or less effectively technocratic neoliberals who think human suffering can be reduced to a chart, stuffed into an equation, and solved by The Perfect Algorithm. Phewdo you know the kind of person Im talking about? Perhaps, perhaps.

Now this kind of personthe white American liberalhas a very specific, funny, and weird kind of mentality. A savior complex. Theyve been brought up to believe theyre the smartest and best people of all, and now, theyre dying to save the republic. But for that reason, they suppose, at least so far as I can see, that the only people who can save the republic arethem. Not you, not me, not women, not gays, not minorities, not blacks, not Arab-Americans, not anyone else whatsoever in any way butwhite liberals. Hence, they only talk to, and about, each other. Savior complex: not Ill help you, as something like an equal, but Im your knight in shining armour! Youll never do better than me! They see themselves, in other words, as heroic rescuers.

Ah, you see? Who else was notorious for saying I alone can save you? Well come back to that point shortly. First, you can see where Im going, probably. If Americas just a thing which is there to be saved by a tiny band of dashing white liberalswhich means they retain all the power, glory, opportunities, and fortune, toothen how can it ever really be a country for anyone else in the first place?

So. Are we damsels in distress? Should we want to be rescued by saviours? Doesnt every kind of salvation have a priceand isnt democracy something more than that? If we think about Ame...

Pope Francis declares death penalty inadmissible in all cases "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

https://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-45042130

Pope Francis has changed the teachings of the Catholic faith to officially oppose the death penalty in all circumstances, the Vatican has said.

The Catechism of the Church, a codified doctrine which sums up teachings, had previously stated that the death penalty could be used in some cases.

It now says it is inadmissible because it is an attack on the inviolability and dignity of the person.

Pope Francis has spoken out against executions in the past.

Last October, he had said the Churchs policy on the death penalty was one area where teaching was not static and could change with modern concerns.

The text of the catechism was first set by Pope John Paul II in October 1992, and earlier stated that the death penalty was an appropriate response...

Bankrupt America: Bankruptcy Soars As The Country Grapples With An Unprecedented Debt Problem "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

America, you officially have a debt problem, and I am not just talking about the national debt.  Consumer bankruptcies are surging, corporate debt has doubled since the last financial crisis, state and local government debt loads have never been higher, and the federal government has been adding more than a trillion dollars a year to the federal debt ever since Barack Obama entered the White House.  We have been on the greatest debt binge in human history, and it has enabled us to enjoy our ridiculously high standard of living for far longer than we deserved.  Many of us have been sounding the alarm about our debt problem for a very long time, but now even the mainstream news is freaking out about it.  I have a feeling that they just want something else to hammer President Trump over the head with, but they are actually speaking the truth when they say that we are facing an unprecedented debt crisis.

For example, the New York Times just published a piece that discussed the fact that the bankruptcy rate among retirees is about three times higher than it was in 1991

For a rapidly growing share of older Americans, traditional ideas about life in retirement are being upended by a dismal reality: bankruptcy.

The signs of potential trouble vanishing pensions, soaring medical expenses, inadequate savings have been building for years. Now, new research sheds light on the scope of the problem: The rate of people 65 and older filing for bankruptcy is three times what it was in 1991, the study found, and the same group accounts for a far greater share of all filers.

Overall, Baby Boomers are doing a whole lot better financially than the generations coming after them, and so this is very tr...

The Clampdown "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

By Alexandra Bruce

In February 2018, CNN (CIA) began to lean heavily on YouTube to make them terminate Alex Jones YouTube channels but instead, several medium-sized alt news channels took the hit, including the utterly innocent Bombards Body Language with 265k subscribers and the Richie Allen Show with 76k subscribers. The latter was eventually restored, after vigorous lobbying, while others, like the SGTReport (351k subscribers) and Crowdsource the Truth (65k subscribers) have since experienced their own dramatic take-downs and restorations.

You can call Alex Jones controlled opposition all you want but you cant deny that the other shoe has now dropped, with his stunning mass de-platforming on Monday by YouTube, Facebook, iTunes, Spotify, LinkedIn, Pinterest, MailChimp, etc. in the latest installment of this ongoing behaviorist study of public reaction to the demonetization of free speech.

Ive been chronicling the saga since it happened to me in December 2014, when Google AdSense demonetized the ads on my website from one day to the next, with no warning or recourse and I went from having a comfortable 6-figure job to scrounging to eat and pay my rent. When I tried to tell people about this, they thought I was crazy. A year later, it started happening to lots of others. And now, its happened in a very public way to Alex Jones.

My first shocking episode was way back in August 2011, when my mass emailing company at the time, AWeber deleted my account without warning and no opportunity of backing up my data. They told me that complaints over a post about SmartMeters caused one of the 3 biggest Internet Service Providers to threaten them with blocking all of AWebers other clients traffic, unless my account wasnt immediately deleted.

American Intelligence Media (60k+ subscribers) recently explained how all of the above has been part of a controlled demolition of free speech and that we are in a race against the Globalist technocracy, who are clamoring to implement a 5G Global Information Grid, which will coincide with a system of social credit, now being ...

Tariff Revenue Wont Pay Down the Debt "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

Tariff Revenue Wont Pay Down the Debt swinn Wed, 08/08/2018 - 15:52

President Trumps claim this week that his tariffs will enable the government to start "paying down" large amounts of the federal debt is wrong for a very simple reason: It is impossible to reduce debt while you are still adding to it.

Trump tweeted Sunday that Because of Tariffs we will be able to start paying down large amounts of the $21 Trillion in debt that has been accumulated, much by the Obama Administration, while at the same time reducing taxes for our people.

The most charitable assumption about this statement is that the president has confused federal deficits and the national debt.

Deficits are what the government borrows each year. The debt is the total amount of money the government already owes as the result of its deficits.

Any additional government revenue could be used to lower projected annual deficits, assuming Congress and the president could resist the temptation to fritter the money away instead.

But in any case, these deficits would have to be reduced to zero before we could even start paying down the debt, let alone reduce it by large amounts. And we unfortunately are a long, long way from zero deficits -- and moving fast in the wrong direction.

The administration itself recently acknowledged this in updating its 2019 budget plan.

The update shows the federal deficit rising to $890 billion for the current fiscal year and soaring well past $1 trillion in Fiscal 2019, followed by two more years of trillion-dollar deficits.

Even these estimates are probably low because they are based on the administrations excessively optimistic economic projections and proposed spending cuts that are unlikely to happen.

The precise fiscal impact of the new tariffs is uncertain. The Treasury Department calculates that they would only bring...

Turn Them Off! #QAnon and the collapse of #FakeNews media "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

The scientist is not a person who gives the right answers, he is one who asks the right questions.

Claude Lvi-Strauss

By Martin Geddes

We are at war. Until now it has been a shadow conflict, conducted largely out of sight of the public. In the last few weeks it has begun to unmistakably break through into the open. There is nothing else in the tech-telecom world that comes close to it in importance, which is why I write about it in preference to everything else. To pretend otherwise would be a dishonourable act of omission.

This war is for the most important territory on the planet: your mind and spirit. It is a real war, being conducted by the formal military against a highly organised opponent. The enemy is not a foreign country, but instead comprises traitors and criminals in our midst. Whilst it has a traditional kinetic componentbombs, lasers and dronesits defining weapons are memetic. Surveillance, counter-intelligence and propaganda are the new longbows, armour and missiles.

Longstanding readers will know that I am not stupid or silly. Being human, I have the occasional foolishness or misadventure, but my intellect and integrity are both fully intact. There is a good reason why I am forcefully presenting things that may make you feel uncomfortable: there is going to be no way of avoiding these matters in the very near future. Everyone is going to be confronted with diametrically opposing narratives, and will have to make a choice over which one to believe and act upon.

You are likely to have seen one of the many articles in the mainstream media in the past week on #QAnon. Each one of them warns you of how this is a dark, right-wing and dangerous movement. The loaded term conspiracy theory is used over and over, warning you of the shameful and fearful social consequences of being associated with this movement.

My position is well known: Q is instead a military operation by white hatsagainst the corrupt and criminal deep state, being led by the NSA and Marines. The mass media has been infiltrated and compromised for decades, being used as a tool of social c...

Whats Happening in Nicaragua? "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

On todays episode of Double Down, Max Keiser and Stacy Herbert talk to Max Blumenthal of GrayZoneProject.com about his recent trip to Nicaragua.

By Max Keiser, Stacy Herbert

Was the recent unrest in Nicaragua a popular uprising or an attempted coup? Max Blumenthal of GrayZoneProject.com traveled there to find out. He found a situation quite different to what he had read or watched in the US corporate media and, indeed, eerily similar to what had happened in Venezuela when pro-government leftist protestors were burned to death by opposition activists. But with a growing economy, unlike Venezuela, and with very little narco violence, like neighboring Central American states, El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras, what was the failed coup in Nicaragua really about? There is talk of a canal across Nicaragua that would favor China, could this be reason enough for outside intervention? This is just one of many possibilities says Blumenthal. Tune into Double Down to hear more.

US Senator Rand Paul delivers letter from Trump to Putin "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

By RT News

US Senator Rand Paul has said he delivered a letter from US President Donald Trump to Vladimir Putins administration. Moscow says that it will consider it in the near future.

I was honored to deliver a letter from President Trump to President Vladimir Putins administration, the senator from Kentucky wrote on Twitter.

Dmitry Peskov, Vladimir Putins press secretary, confirmed that a missive had been received through diplomatic channels, and will soon be delivered to the presidents administration.

According to Paul, the letter emphasized the importance of further engagement between Washington and Moscow in various areas including countering terrorism, enhancing legislative dialogue and resuming cultural exchanges.

Paul has been an outspoken proponent of engagement with Moscow, who has repeatedly voiced support for Trumps decision to meet with Putin in Helsinki last July. He recently visited Moscow as part of a Republican delegation. The politician explained that part of the purpose of this trip was to promote greater dialogue between Moscow and Washington.

The world is a complicated place, we are in close proximity to Russia in Syria and other places, and I think it would be a very big mistake not to have open lines of communication, Paul said on Monday. He also invited a delegation of Russian lawmakers to Washington DC.

Ahead of his visit to Moscow, Paul stressed that his goal in coming to Moscow was to find common ground with [Russian] leaders and help prevent further, unnecessary escalation of tensions.

Feinsteins Ties To China Go Way Deeper Than An Alleged Office Spy "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

Sen. Dianne Feinsteins warm relationship with and advocacy for Communist China go back decades and involve millions, if not billions, of dollars.

By Ben Weingarten

I sometimes say that in my last life maybe I was Chinese.Sen. Dianne Feinstein

As media, intelligence agency, and political scrutiny of foreign meddling is seemingly at its apex, a story with big national security implications involving a high-ranking senator with access to Americas most sensitive intelligence information has been hiding in plain sight.

The story involves China and the senior U.S. senator from California, and former chair of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, Democrat Dianne Feinstein. It was buried eight paragraphs into a recent Politico expos on foreign efforts to infiltrate Silicon Valley, as a passing example of political espionage:

Former intelligence officials[said]Chinese intelligence once recruited a staff member at a California office of U.S. Senator Dianne Feinstein, and the source reported back to China about local politics. (A spokesperson for Feinstein said the office doesnt comment on personnel matters or investigations, but noted that no Feinstein staffer in California has ever had a security clearance.)

Later comes additional detail:

According to four former intelligence officials, in the 2000s, a staffer in Senator Dianne Feinsteins San Francisco field office was reporting back to the MSS [Chinas Ministry of State Security, its intelligence and security apparatus]. While this person, who was a liaison to the local Chinese community, was fired, charges were never filed against him. (One former official reasoned this was because the staffer was providing political intelligence and not classified informationmaking prosecution far more difficult.) The suspected informant was run by officials based at Chinas San Francisco Consulate, said another former intelligence official. The spys handler probably got an award back in China for his work, noted this former official, dryly.

This anecdote provides significantly more questions than answers. For starters: Who was the spy? For how long was the spy under surveillance? What information about local politics was the spy passing back to China? Just how close was the spy to the senator? Did law enforcement officials sweep vehicles and o...

Q Community Responds to Media Attacks "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

By Joshua Phillips

Over the past week, nearly all legacy news outlets have published articles criticizing the growing movement around a mysterious figure or group known as Q, which since October 2017 has been publishing alleged leaks on behind-the-scenes actions taken by the Trump administration to uproot alleged global corruption.

The general angle on Q from most news outlets is the samethat its a conspiracy theoryand The Washington Post even went so far as to call it a deranged conspiracy cult.

The media backlash has done little to dissuade Q supporters, however, who continue to support the movement with billboards and t-shirts at Trump rallies, and in numerous online groups that analyze and discuss recent news and posts from Q.

To gain a better understanding of the movement, and why people believe in it, The Epoch Times spoke with Q fans at recent Trump rallies in Pennsylvania and Ohio, and with Jordan Sather, a prominent figure online who speaks and writes about his analysis of Q.

Anybody calling it a cult or calling it a conspiracy theory, or calling it names, is doing so from an ignorant standpoint. Everybody attacking it, I find, theyre not even reading it, said Sather, who runs the Destroying the Illusion channel on YouTube, on which he analyzes Q posts.

Q is a series of anonymous posts on the 8chan forum, which includes encryption to protect the identity of users, allowing for free discussion. The Q posts are mainly based on politics and focus on giving context to events both in the past and allegedly still to come. They focus heavily on government corruption and allege that actions are being taken by Trump and his administration to purge this corruption.

Sather described Q as a laser pointer that directs people to research chains of open-source information and discuss their findings on the forum.

He said that Q hopped on the scene at a very pivotal point, in October 2017. According to Sather, there is a fight between a deep state system comprising intelligence agencies and corrupt organizations, and an alliance of military intelligence agencies and patriots fighting this system. This fight, Sather believes, ties to President Donald Trumps campaign message to drain the swamp.

US Senate Intelligence Committee calls Julian Assange to testify "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

By RT News

The US Senate Intelligence Committee has requested that persecuted WikiLeaks editor Julian Assange testify before committee staff. The committee is investigating alleged Russian interference in the 2016 election.

In a letter delivered to Assange at his residence in the Ecuadorian embassy in London, committee chairman Richard Burr (R-North Carolina) requested that Assange make himself available for a closed interview at a mutually agreeable time and location.

WikiLeaks legal team said that they are considering the offer but testimony must conform to a high ethical standard.

Assange fled to the Ecuadorian embassy in London in 2012, seeking asylum from possible extradition to the US, where he faced indictment under the Espionage Act for publishing leaked government documents. Since his de-facto house arrest in the embassy, WikiLeaks has continued to draw controversy, publishing then-candidate Hillary Clintons emails and leaked emails from the Democratic Partys internal servers in 2016.

Over a month before the Senate Intelligence Committees letter arrived in London, ten Democrat senators sent a petition to Vice President Mike Pence, demanding that he press the Ecuadorian government to revoke Assanges asylum.

Pence visited Ecuador shortly after, and met with the countrys president, Lenin Moreno. After meeting with Pence, Moreno reportedly mulled evicting Assange from the embassy. Assange had been granted asylum by Morenos predecessor, and the new president described the Australia......

Milton Friedman in *Death Wish* "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

Dan Klein writes to me:

Yes, a movie character (young woman student) was reading it aloud to her friend in a coma, Bruce Williss daughter, who had been attacked and shot. Willis comes in and asks what shes been reading. The young woman replies that she had to read it anyway, for summer reading in anticipation of NYU, and figured good for coma victim to hear voice. Willis makes a joke about I dont think that will wake her up or Do you think that will wake her?

When Willis asks her what shes reading she says Essays in Positive Economics, by Milton Friedman. And then explains that it is on the NYU summer reading list.

The text quoted was: Normative economics and the art of economics, on the other hand, cannot be independent of positive economics. Any policy conclusion necessarily rests on a prediction about the consequences of doing one thing rather than another

Inflation before the oil shock "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

Tyler Cowen recently linked to an interesting William Fischel paper from 2016:

In the 1970s, unprecedented peacetime inflation, touched off by the oil cartel OPEC, combined with longstanding federal tax privileges to transform owner-occupied homes into growth stocks. The inability to insure their homes newfound value converted homeowners into homevoters, whose local political behavior focused on preventing development that might devalue their homes. Homevoters seized on the nascent national environmental movement, epitomized by Earth Day, and modified its agenda to serve local demands, thereby eroding the power of the prodevelopment coalition called the growth machine. The post-1970 shift in the American economy from industrial employment to knowledge-based services rewarded college graduates and regions that specialized in software and finance. Residents of suburbs in the larger urban areas of the Northeast and West Coast used existing zoning and new environmental leverage to protect the growth rate of their home values. The regional spread of these regulations has slowed the growth of the economy and perpetuated regional income inequalities. I argue that the most promising way to modify this trend is to reduce federal tax subsidies to homeownership.

1.  Consider it done.  The 2017 tax bill will lead to 60% fewer people using the mortgage interest deduction.  That didnt take long!  Seriously, I do think this reform will help, but we should not expect miracles.  So far it doesnt seem to have dramatically slowed the rate of appreciation in home prices, although its plausible that the increase would have been a bit faster without the tax change.

2.  The environmental movement did have some major successes, such as cutting air and water pollution.  But the requirement for environmental impact statements now seems like a major mistake, and indeed might actually hurt the environment by making it harder to build in major cities.

3.  Not to get too picky, but the idea that OPEC touched off the Great Inflation is a myth.  Heres inflation before the oil shock of October 1973:

Elite Closing Down Truth Tellers Greg Hunter Watchdog USA Interviews Paul Craig Roberts. "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

Elite Closing Down Truth Tellers Greg Hunter Watchdog USA Interviews Paul Craig Roberts.

Economic expert and journalist Dr. Paul Craig Roberts says the ideas of the elite are awful, and they want to suppress free speech to get their policies instituted.  Dr. Roberts explains, The agendas of the elite are hidden.  They are not something the American people would support.  The elite are fearful that their cover stories are so thin that if truth can be shown on their agendas, they will be discredited.  They will lose their abilities to impose their agendas.  So, they are closing down truth tellers in order to maintain control over explanations.  Alex Jones is a threat to the elites control over the explanations. . . . They are sending the message that says get onboard with the official explanations or we terminate you.
 
Dr. Roberts goes on to ask, Why is this possible?  It is possible because the antitrust laws of the United States have not been enforced.  These are all monopolies.  Monopoly is against the law.  Its against the Sherman Antitrust Act, but they dont enforce it because theyre so powerful.  They just prevent the law being enforced.  Plus, they have the neo-liberal economists saying that today you have to be a monopoly to compete globally.  . . . Its a lie, but its a cover for having just a few people controlling information.
 
Dr. Roberts says big tech companies are too big to function fairly.  Dr. Roberts explains, They should be broken up, or they should be nationalized or actually they should be arrested. . . . They are part of a plot.  They are engaged in high treason against the government of the United States.  If I was the Attorney General, I would have all of them arrested and put in solitary confinement awaiting trial.  Thats where they belong.  Thats where Google belongs along with Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, Spotify, The New York Times, Washington Post, CNN, MSNBC and NPR.  They are all involved in a plot to overthrow the President.  So, they would all be arrested and put in jail. . . . Why arent they?  Well, Trump just doesnt have the power.  They are stronger than he is. . . . There is not an ounce of integrity in the media.
 
Why is the mainstream media (MSM) and the Deep State fighting so hard against Trump?  Dr. Roberts contends, All this started during the Presidential campaign when Trump started normalizing relations with Russia.  It would be good for both of us, both countries.  Thats when they cooked this up (Russian collusion with Trump campaign).  They said, oh my gosh we cant have that.  All the money we wallow inthe $1,000 billion annual budget of the military/security complex the excuse for it, will be gone.  The need for an enemuythats the main factor hereits a huge sum of money.  So, the military/security complex and their presstitute shills are going to fight to keep it.

The Ethical Collapse at the End of Predatory Capitalism "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

Wherever You Look, the Unethical Rule. Why?

Jack wont kick Alex Jones off Twitter. Paul Manafort buys $15k jackets. Kleptocrats skim millions with glee. London bookshops attacked by fascists. Extremism, hate, rage on the rise.

What unites all these weird, awful things?

I think that predatory capitalism has ripped a hole not just in economiesbut right down in our souls. Its inequality, unfettered greed, unfairness, and dehumanization are sparking an ethical implosion. One which we see everywhere, if we look. Hey, why doesnt Silicon Valley have any ethics? Waitwhat about Washington DC, Wall St, the alt right, the neo-Nazis, ICE, the GOP, the immovable centrists.

You see my point. Wherever we look, it seems self-evident that ethics have collapsed ruinouslythe idea that our lives should arc towards some genuine, enduring ideal of the good. Instead, we seem to delight in ruin and misery. Why is that? How did it come to be? What happened to the good, anyways?

Today, we veer between two ethical stancesneither of which are much good at all. They dont really allow to think clearly, well, or enough about vexing issues of suffering, harm, and the meaning of our own livesbut Ill get to all that.

Jack, shrugging when it comes to Alex Jones, is using what I call protagonistic ethics. This is the first perspective that I see people takeits more or less the default stance we take today. It consists of a kind of negligent indifference to suffering. Hey! Its not my fault! Everyone has to grow up and take personal responsibility for their own suffering! The old myth of self-reliance, writ large. But can self-reliancefor everyone elsereally spark the human good? American collapse suggests: LOL, no.

Do you know how were told, so often these days, to be heroes in our own stories? Protagonistic ethics is a little bit like that. We live in a hostile, alien world. Thanks, largely, to predatory capitalism. It doesnt just seem like things are out to get uslike explorers on a new planet, where even the trees are carnivorousthings are out to get us. So in a classic case of what Freudians might call reaction formation, we react, and suppose that the best thing for us to do is to be heroes of our own stories.

Can we survive the slings and arrows of the hostile world capitalism has left us? Can we make it as we struggle on in our journey through the wasteland? That is the primary goal of protagonistic ethics. It is concerned with the survival of the self in a world which appears hell-bent on defeating one. Capitalism doesnt just eat away at our self-beliefits premised on the idea that we have no inherent worth. And so...

How American Life Became Unlivable "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

Why the Young Want to Leave, the Middle-Aged are Broke, and the Old are Giving Up

Over the last year or so, many, maybe most, young people I know are making plansor at least have dreamsto leave the USA. To touch down on shores richer with possibility. Like all great trends, that ones a sign. American life has become unlivable. Why? And how?

Think about it from the end of a lifenot the beginning. Theres a new boom amongst retirees. Bankruptcy. Basic costs of lifehealthcare, food, and the likehave eaten up so much of their income, many are simply declaring themselves broke. How terrible. And yet if old people are going broke because they cant afford to eat, sleep, and go to the doctor, basicallywhat about young people, whose future is becoming those old people? Would you want to grow old in a society where youd have to declare bankruptcy at 70? What would you even do then? Doesnt that frighten you a little?

So how did America get to this point? What happens in between the beginning and the end of a lifein the middle? People have to make ends meet. But in American, they cant. Not anymore. Life itself has become a wretched, desperate affair. Do you think I exaggerate? How do you feel most days? Happyor anxious, frightened, and worried? How did you get there?

Americans think of hyperinflation as a thing that affect banana republicspoorly governed countries, Venezuela, little African barely-states. But the truth is that hyperinflation has wrecked American life, devastated its middle class, destroyed the prospects of its young, and made life unlivable. How so?

Healthcare has risen by two thousand percent. The price of education has gone up by 1000%. Food, 300%. Rent and house prices, 400%. Childcare, 500%. You can add to that list as you see fit. I call it eudaimonic hyperinflationTVs get cheaper, but the price of the basic stuff of a good life rockets upwards beyond the edges of the solar system, way beyond the point of sanity, let alone reason....

You Want Freedom? Join Us August 11th for a 15 Minute Meditation! "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

It is time to take action again! It is time to take the destiny of our world in our own hands! We all agree that the process of planetary liberation is taking too long. Here is our chance to collectively speed up the process. Therefore we are using the opportunity of the Solar eclipse on August 11th to create a portal through which we will unify our consciousness and enlighten the energy field around the planet.

Make this viral! Share it worldwide! Please post it on your websites and blogs. Invite spiritual groups to join us. If you know an alternative media outlet, you can send it to them. You can create a Facebook group for your local group of people doing this in your part of the world. We also need one main Facebook group for this event. You can create a video about this and post it on Youtube.

Scientific studies have confirmed positive effects of mass meditations on human society, so each of you that will participate in this meditation can actually help bringing the Event and Full Disclosure closer to us:

When large numbers of people get together and meditate at the same time, it has an energetic ripple effect on the consciousness of the surrounding people. People who arent even meditating are impacted by the effects of the meditators.

http://thespiritscience.net/2015/06/18/studies-show-group-meditation-lowers-crime-suicide-deaths-in-surrounding-areas/

http://www.worldpeacegroup.org/washington_crime_study.html

This meditation helps the Light forces to ground the energy of Light on the surface of the planet to resolve the deadlock between the Light and the dark forces, finally setting humanity free. Number of people doing that meditation is the single most influential factor within the power of the surface human population for speeding up the process.

We will be doing this meditation at the moment of the maximum of the Solar eclipse on Saturday, August 11th at 2:11 am PDT in Los Angeles.

This equals 11:11 am EET in Cairo, 11:11 am CEST in Paris, 10:11 pm BST in London, 5:11 am EDT in New York, 4:11 am CDT in Chicago, 3:11 am MDT in Denver and 5:11 pm CST in Taipei.

Striking Charter/Spectrum Workers: The Timings Perfect For Our New Coop "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

The striking group of Charter/Spectrum workers who have introduced a plan to replace the flagging telecom king with a new worker cooperative that would better serve subscribers and workers alike, says the timing to get behind the effort couldnt be more perfect.

On July 27, the NY Public Service Commission [PSC] rescinded its approval of Charter/Spectrums 2016 merger with Time-Warner Cable after determining the number two cable TV company in the nation has no intention of providing the public benefits upon which the Commissions earlier approval was conditioned.

And earlier this week, 23 members of the New York City Council, led by Rafael Espinal [D-37th District] and Francisco Moya [D-21st District], called on the city to stop doing business with Charter/Spectrum in the future.

Troy Walcott, the striking Charter/Spectrum survey tech spearheading the new worker coop, called the actions being taken against the telecom  amazing.

The Absurd Monetary Dead-End Of Whatever It Takes "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

In September 2016, the Bank of Japan (BOJ) introduced Quantitative and Qualitative Easing (QQE) with Yield Curve Control. The new policy framework aimed to strengthen the effects of monetary easing by controlling short-term and long-term interest rates through market operations. The announcement also introduced an inflation overshooting commitment with the BOJ committed to expanding the monetary base until the year-over-year inflation rate exceeds and remains above the 2 percent target in a stable manner. Essentially, the BOJ pulled a Draghi and promised to do whatever it takes to ensure interest rates did not rise more than they wanted.

Rekhmire: The First Masonic Grand Master of the Deep State "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

By Moe Bedard

In studying this lost history, I have discovered what appears to be the first known evidence and physical proof of what we can call The First Masonic Grand Master of the Deep State. These Masonic revelations I discovered in the tomb of a very important Egyptian noble and official of the 18th dynasty who served as Governor of the Town of Thebes and Vizier for Pharaohs Thutmosis III and Amenhotep II.

His name is Rekhmire.

The image above shows us Rekhmires Masonic symbols and the way he faces, the position of his feet and also what he holds in his hands are done purposely to indicate his royal authority and also the subjects AKA slaves who were all under his magical sway. He advances with his right foot forward as he holds the Shepards cane/crook in his right hand to control the slaves and in his left hand is the scepter to beat any unruly slaves/masons under the Kings sway that runs behind his body.

In ancient Egypt, Rekhmire held the royal title of Vizier which is the highest-ranking government official, appointed by the pharaoh and acting as his chancellor (chief administrator; Egyptian: taty).

Vizier was a term for the chief administrators of Upper and Lower Egypt during the times when the administration of the country was headed by two officials with the vizier for the North (Lower Egypt, the Nile D...

The Djinn seem to be shadow people, grey aliens, fairies, and angels, depending upon what the situation requires.

Basically the lecture reframes all of our assumptions about monsters and preternatural beings with an understanding that the djinn are a major manipulative force who could be masquerading as or coordinating with these other beings.

Politicians were not shy about discussing sexual pleasure, even as a matter of state business.  During Jeffersons second term, when the ambassador from Tunis arrived in Washington, he requested that the secretary of state make his stay complete by providing him and his entourage with concubines.  Madison (generally portrayed as prim and proper) charged the ambassadors pleasure to the government, listing Georgia a Greek, as one of the expenses among appropriations for foreign intercourse  He made light of the incident in a letter to Jefferson, noting the double meaning of foreign intercourse.

That is from Nancy Isenbergs excellent Fallen Founder: The Life of Aaron Burr.  I also learned that Burr was the grandson of Jonathan Edwards, and that late in his life Burr spent time with Bentham, was intrigued by the Panopticon idea, and he may have influenced Bentham on suffrage

LionsGate Portal 8/8/2018 "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

By Heather Hoffman

I know you all feel the shifts. This massive collective recalibration is deep, and occurring on every level.

Leading up to the end of this portal (shift preparation began July 26 and ends Aug 11-12 & major imprinting occurs 8.8) We are receiving repetitive waves of high frequency photonic light to encourage the purging process and to completely cleanse the heart chakra to open fully.

It is said that we are being tested- in a series of three. These manifest as tangible tests- where we are presented with new scenarios with old imprinting; presenting us the opportunity to choose what is in alignment, or what is not. If you choose to not honor your soul, heart, purpose, mission, and integrity- the consequences are amplified more so than ever before. You feel the heaviness on every level, when we used to feel like we could just push through the backlash. Not anymore. You are being called Higher. The time is now.

Some major themes are;

Physical Ailments; fatigue, headaches, sickness, flares, body tightness in joints and muscles

Addiction abuse; overindulging- food, sex, social media, drugs, alcohol~ ignoring the bodys intuitive responses

Emotional projections- projecting fantasies, desires and wounding onto others, relationships and yourself, and then being woken up to your own illusion.

Family wounding- ancestral karma cycling back into the present- will you react from hurt or from your heart?

Financial worries- fear of lack; will you honor your soul/truth or do something just to gain monetary exchange that is not in integrity.

The tests, ARE occurring- so initially you will feel like you have been sucked back into your old ways- but PLEASE do not feel defeated. Simply bring awareness to what is actually occurring and liberate your Self- you have the choice; it is your reaction that is of importance.

We are diving into these limiting cycles to release the energies, and detach from what is no longer in alignment with our best selves and highest timeline. This transformative point is the new beginning. You are being lead to your dharma.

The Fantasy of "Balanced Returns" Funding Retirement "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

Consider how a "balanced portfolio" yielding "balanced returns" worked out for middle class retirees in Venezuela.
The fantasy that a "balanced portfolio" yielding "balanced returns" will fund a stable retirement for decades to come is widely accepted as a sure thing:inflation will stay near-zero essentially forever, assets such as stocks and bonds will continue yielding hefty income and capital gains, and all the individual or fund needs to do is maintain a "balanced portfolio" of various asset classes that yield "balanced returns," i.e. some safe "value" lower-yield returns and some higher risk "growth" returns.
This fantasy is based on the belief that yields will exceed real inflation for decades to come. That is, if inflation is 2%, and the average yield of a "balanced portfolio" is 6%, then the inflation-adjusted return is 4% annually--not great, but enough to secure retirement income.
What few dare ask is: what happens if inflation is 7% and yields drop to 2%?Then the retirement fund loses 5% of its purchasing power every year. In a decade, the fund's value will decline by roughly half.

My favorite things Ukraine "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

I am just arriving, and for the first time  Here are my favorites:

1. Pianist: Emil Gilels, most of all for Beethoven and Chopin.  Vladimir Horowitz was born in Kiev, he was often best in unusual pieces, such as Scriabin, Prokofiev, and John Philip Sousa.  But there is also Cherkassy, Pachmann, Moiseiwitsch, Lhevinne, and others.  Simon Barere was one of the greatest Liszt pianists.  So we are into A++ territory here.  But waitRichter was born in Ukraine!  My head is exploding now.

1b. Violinists: Youve got Nathan Milstein, Mischa Elman, Isaac Stern, Leonid Kogan, the Oistrakhs, among others, with Milsteins Bach recordings as my favorite.

2. Composer: Prokofiev was born in eastern Ukraine (or is it now Russia again?), but somehow I dont feel he counts.  Valentin Sylvestrov would be an alternative.

3. Novelist: One choice would be Nikolai Gogol, then Mikhail Bulgakov, born in Kiev but ethnically Russian.  But I cant say I love Master and Margarita; it is probably much better and funnier in the original Russian.  His The White Guard is a more directly Ukrainian novel, and it should be better known.  A Country Doctors Notebook is perhaps my favorite by him.  For short stories there is Isaac Babel.  Joseph Conrad was born in modern-day Ukraine, though I dont feel he counts as Ukrainian, same with Stanislaw Lem.  Vassily Grossman is a toss-up in terms of origin.  The Brazilian author Clarice Lispector, now very much in fashion, was born in Ukraine.

4. Movie: Alexander Dovzhenkos Earth, a 1930 take on agricultural collectivization.  With Dovshenko as my favorite director.

The Sun is Changing Shape and we have No Idea Why "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

By Adam Goldberg

In a strangely perfect detail about our own Sun in the grand scope of things and the entire known universe, it seems that it is quite an average star. Despite how average our Sun is, it produces so many different phenomena that scientists and independent researchers can really only begin to grasp.

Its like a nuclear reactor, capable of producing intricate plasma streams deep into outer space, solar tornadoes, solar flares, and perhaps even spiritual effects on the people and creatures who populate planet Earth.

Now, a study brought to light by New Scientist seems to insert another interesting layer to this enigmatic onion that is the Sun, the great center of our solar system and life itself.

According to a paper recently published in the Astrophysical Journal, our own Sun grows and shrinks in a cycle of 11 years, by a width of about 0.6-1.2 miles, or 1 to 2 kilometers. Its like the Sun breathes and sort of wobbles in its size, which makes sense because it is a flaming ball of gas.

Considering the relative, massive size of the Sun, you could call this an extremely gentle, almost unnoticeable inhale and exhale, like lungs. The extra width of the Sun at certain moments in this eleven year cycle is merely equal to about 0.00029 percent of the Suns radius, at very most.

A team from the University of Cote dAzur and the New Jersey Institute of Technology managed to observe this almost minute difference, in a similar fashion to other recent studies apparently, by closely examining the streams of plasma t...

Exposing Antarctica: Secret Space Program, Underground Bases, Reptilians, Nordics "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

By Julie Alexander

In Dr Michael Sallas latest book Antarcticas Hidden History we learn about the Thule Society, the German Secret Space Programme, the Reptilians, the Nordics and so much more. A brief summary of his book is below.

German Secret Space Programmes

Before World War 2, Adolf Hitler was supported by the German Workers Party (who later became the NAZI party). The German Workers Party was soon to be supported by the Thule Society, once they realised what an asset Adolf Hitler was.

The Thule Society believed in a mysterious force called Vril, a force that could be harnessed by individuals; their aim was to gain power using this force.

With the help of a psychic called Maria Orsic who telepathically communicated with Inner Earth humans they obtained information and plans to build flying saucers.

The Thule society started to produce flying saucers.

Pictures collage or various models of real Nazi Vril flying saucers

During the 2nd world war when the Germans realised that they were losing, the Thule Society transferred all their manpower, knowledge and technology to the Antarctic.

The Thule society split into two separate groups. The Thule Society was working with reptilians from Earth and Maria Orsic was working with Nordics from inner earth.

Antarctica is about the same size as the USA and Mexico combined. It has 3 large mountain ranges and ap...

Mind-Boggling Forty-Four New Alien Worlds Unveiled in One Swoop "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

By The Daily Galaxy

It was also gratifying to verify so many small planets. Sixteen were in the same size class as Earth, one in particular turning out to be extremely small about the size of Venus which was a nice affirmation as its close to the limit of what is possible to detect.

Forty-four planets in solar systems beyond our own have been unveiled in one go, dwarfing the usual number of confirmations from extrasolar surveys, which is typically a dozen or less. The findings will improve our models of solar systems and may help researchers investigate exoplanet atmospheres. Novel techniques developed to validate the find could hugely accelerate the confirmation of more extrasolar planet candidates.An international team of astronomers pooled data from U.S. space agency NASAs Kepler and the European Space Agency (ESA)s Gaia space telescopes, as well as ground-based telescopes in the U.S. Alongside John Livingston, lead author of the study and a graduate student at the University of Tokyo, the teams combined resources led to the confirmed existence of these 44 exoplanets and described various details about them.

A portion of the findings yield some surprising characteristics: For example, four of the planets orbit their host stars in less than 24 hours, says Livingston. In other words, a year on each of those planets is shorter than a day here on Earth. These contribute to a small but growing list of ultrashort-period planets, so it could turn out theyre not as unusual as they might seem.

The source observations for this study were made by Kepler, and they would not have happened were it not for a fault in 2013, which prevented accurate control of the space telescope. Two out of the four control-reaction wheels failed, which meant Kepler couldnt perform its original mission to stare at one specific patch of the sky, explains Professor Motohide Tamura of the University of Tokyo. This led to its contingent mission, K2 our observations came from campaign 10 of this mission. Were lucky Kepler continues to function as well as it does.

The planets observed by K2 are known as transiting planets because their orbits bring them in front of their host stars, slightly reducing their brightness. However, other astrophysical phenomena can cause similar signals, so follow-up observations and detailed statistical analyses were performed to confirm the planetary nature of these signals. As part of his doctoral work, Livingston traveled to Kitt Peak observatory in the U.S. state of Arizona to obtain data from a special type of camera, known as a speckle interferometer installed on a large telescope there.

These observations, along with follow-up observations from a telescope in the state of Texas, were necessary to characterize...

Massive rogue planet crowned with a glowing aurora found wandering the galaxy "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

By Joe Pinkstone

  • The mysterious object sits in a grey area between a star and a planet
  • It was originally labelled a brown dwarf but now scientists are unsure
  • It is almost 13 times more massive than Jupiter and is travelling the galaxy alone 
  • It was found using the Very Large Array (VLA) located in New Mexico  

A rogue planet with a mass more than 12 times that of Jupiter has been spotted hurtling through space.

This brownish celestial body is travelling through the galaxy completely alone around 20 light years from Earth and has an unusual aurora emanating from its pole.

The planet produces a magnetic field around 200 times greater than that of the largest planet in our Solar System.

It is the first object of its kind to be spotted using radio signals.

Scientists are unsure of its origin and what causes its mysterious aurora.

The unusual object sits in a grey area between a star and a planet, and was originally classed as a brown dwarf a failed star.

Brown dwarfs are objects that are too big to be considered planets, but not massive enough to sustain nuclear fusion in their cores the process that powers stars.

It was first seen in 2016 by the Very Large Array (VLA) telescope in New Mexico that specialises in detecting radio signals.

The telescope spotted five objects, which scientists believed were all brown dwarves.

Further research however, saw that one of the objects, called SIMP J01365663+0933473, was considerably younger and smaller than the others.

A team of astronomers found it has a surface temperature of about 825C (1,517F) and is only 200 million years old.

Some experts have concluded it is therefore not a brown dwarf, but a free-floating planet.

This object is right at the boundary between a planet and a brown dwarf, or failed star, and is giving us some surprises that can potentially help us understand magnetic processes on both stars and planets, said Dr Melodie Kao, an astronomer at Arizona State University....

Massive Fire Tornado Blaze Started By A Flat Tire; White House Declares Major Disaster In California The Millennium Report "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

By Zero Hedge

One the most destructive wildfires in California history, the Carr fire, is still raging with only about 40% of it contained while elsewhere in the state, especially in the north, fires continue to expand.

Overnight a seventh person was reported killed by the Carr fire as another in the north of the state expanded by 25% overnight, leading the White House to declare a major disaster in California in a statement on Sunday morning. President Donald Trump has ordered the release of federal funding for recovery efforts.

The deadly Carr fire has scorched more than 145,000 acres as of Sunday morning; and as CNN reports, the wildfire which began on July 23rd was actually caused by a flat tire.

Photo taken Saturday morning. Via Antionio Paris/Twitter

The CNN report details the Carr fires origins in late July  but one of the 17 currently burning across the state:

It happens countless times on roads across America: a vehicle gets a flat tire, usually just a temporary inconvenience.

But on one road near Redding, California, when a tire failed last month on a trailer and its rim scraped the asphalt, the result was catastrophic for an entire region.

The sparks that shot out July 23 from that minor incident, California fire officials said, ignited what is now the sixth-most destructive wildfire in state history.

The Carr Fire blazed a fiery path along Highway 299, lighting up mile after mile of dry brush as it crept up on residential areas.

One man, Ed Bledsoe, lost his wife and two great-grandchildren, ages 4 and 5, within only a 15 minute time frame.

The mans family were victims of the previously reported fire tornado, or what some are calling a firenado that ripped through Redding, which produced whirling winds of fire in excess of 143 mph.

Washington Post-CIA Connections: Back to Basics "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

By Jon Rappoport

There are now hundreds of supposed facts which prove Russia influenced the 2016 US election. I thought Id go back to a few basics

The CIA says is never a great way to start a sentence. But thats one basis of the charge that Russia hacked the US presidential election.

Members of Congress were secretly briefed by the CIA on the Russian affair, and media, led by the Washington Post, ran with the story that Russia influenced the US election on the side of Trump.

Major media outlets are happy to cite the CIA as an authorityconveniently ignoring the fact that people in the intelligence field are taught to lie. Its their stock in trade.

You might remember the Washington Posts role in defaming and destroying Gary Webb, who, in 1996, published a series of articles in the Mercury News about the CIA seeding black Los Angeles neighborhoods with crack cocaine. The Post basically asked the CIA whether the charge was true, and when the Agency denied it, the Post attacked Webb as a fake news reporter. The same Washington Post led the campaign to tie the Russian government to Hillary Clintons defeat. And the Post, once again, used unproven statements from the CIA to back up their claim.

I could go on and on about the Post and its historic CIA ties. But now, right now, the owner of the Post is Jeff Bezos, who also owns Amazon. And Amazon has a $600 million contract to provide the CIA cloud computing services.

Boom.

Ordinarily, that would be called a fatal conflict of interest, whenever the Post opens up its yap about the CIA in any context.

However, mainstream news outlets, the very big ones, dont go around criticizing each others ownerships; so the Bezos-CIA relationship is conveniently ignored.

An honest lead paragraph on Russia-CIA-Trump allegations in the Post, however, would start this way:

Our paper is owned by Jeff Bezos, and Jeff is making $600 million to provide the CIA with computing services, so take everything below with a grain of salt the size of Langley.

Going one step further, Amazon and the CIA are both in the data-collecting business. What are the chances that Amazon, in the interest of national security, has been sharing its massive customer data with the CIA and other US intelligence agencies?

This should lead to another conflict-of-interest statement from the Washington Post: As you read any article in our paper, keep in mind that our owner may be data-mining you and passing the information to the CIA. Have a nice day.

Here Are 410 Movies Made Under The Direct Influence And Supervision Of The Pentagon "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

By Zero Hedge

A year ago we featured a detailed report by authors Tom Secker and Matthew Alford exposing just how vast the Pentagon and CIA programs for partnering with Hollywood actually are, based on some 4,000 new pages of formerly classified archived documents obtained through the Freedom of Information Act.

The report noted at the time that These documents for the first time demonstrate that the US government has worked behind the scenes on over 800 major movies and more than 1,000 TV titles.

Reviewing the ever expanding list, the average movie watcher might be in for a shock at what films are actually included  there are the more predictable ones like Black Hawk Down, Zero Dark Thirty, and Lone Survivor; but also entirely unexpected ones that apparently needed the military-industrial complexs propaganda touch like Earnest Saves ChristmasKarate Kid 2, The Silence of the LambsTwister, the Iron Man movies, and more recently Pitch Perfect 3.

When a Hollywood writer or producer approaches the Pentagon and asks for access to military assets to help make their film, they have to submit their script to the entertainment liaison offices for vetting. Ultimately, the man with the final say is Phil Strub, the Department of Defenses (DOD) chief Hollywood liaison, who has been at the helm of this formerly semi-secret department going all the way back to 1989.

Newly Elected President of Mexico to Ban Fracking "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

By Lorraine Chow

Mexicos president-elect Andrs Manuel Lpez Obrador said he will end the use of hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, once he enters office on Dec. 1.

We will no longer use that method to extract petroleum, the populist politician said Tuesday at a press conference, as quoted by the Associated Press.

This is a setback for the energy industry that has eyed Mexicos shale-rich Burgos Basin in the north, DeSmog reported. It was only less than a year ago when Mexicos national energy ministry opened the onshore portion of the Burgos Basin for natural gas exploration and development by private companies.

The horizontal drilling technique is used to unlock oil and natural gas deposits from shale beds. Fracking has significantly ramped up natural gas extraction and has aided local economies, but opponents say that fracking pollutes the air and groundwater, among other environmental and public health concerns. The technique has been banned in many U.S. municipalities and countries around the world.

The plan to ban fracking in Mexico represents the latest common-sense decision by a world leader to prohibit this inherently toxic, polluting practice, Food & Water Watch executive director Wenonah Hauter told DeSmog.

President-elect Obrador is moving in the right direction on many issues, including energy and the environment, Hauter added. He can move even farther by pledging to transition Mexico to a fully clean, renewable energy future, thereby setting a remarkable example for its neighbors to the north.

According to the AP, Lopez Obrador also spoke against private electricity generation contracts t...

Social media giants collectively ban Alex Jones as they collude with establishment media to shut down anyone who disagrees "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

By JD Heyes

In what certainly appears to be a coordinated act, on Monday social media and corporate giants moved to completely ban radio talk show host Alex Jones and content from his news site Infowars from the platforms in the Lefts latest effort to silence conservatives ahead of the 2018 election.

The first to move was Facebook and Apple. In a tweet, Infowars editor-at-large Paul Joseph Watson announced the Facebook ban:

Facebook has permanently BANNED Infowars.

For unspecified hate speech. They didnt even tell us what the offending posts were.

This sets a chilling precedent for free speech. To all other conservative news outlets you are next.

The great censorship purge has truly begun.

He noted in a subsequent tweet:

Whether you love or loathe Infowars, this now confirms that Big Tech is working with legacy media to silence independent media.

In places like Russia, the government shuts down the press, in America, CNN, Apple and Facebook fulfil [sic]that role.

In addition to Facebook and Apple, Spotify and YouTube, the latter of which is owned by Google, have also banned Infowars content as well as Jones videos and podcasts.

The Censorship Is Real EndOfTheAmericanDream.com Is Being Completely Blocked By Library Internet Filters "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

By Michael Snyder

Somebody out there definitely does not want you to see what I have to say. On Sunday I received an email that upset me greatly, and I am about to share it with you. One of my readers recently went to his local library to print off a couple of copies of one of my articles, and it turns out that EndOfTheAmericanDream.com was completely blocked by the Internet filter that the library was using. I have been writing a lot about how conservative voices are being systematically censored on the Internet, but it becomes more real when it happens to you. The following is the message that my reader sent me via email

Michael I just had a terrifying, alarming experience at my local library in Pleasant Hill MO. I went in to get the Librarian to run off two copies of your article about the gap between the rich and poor being so great now and the Librarian couldnt get on endoftheamericandream because your website is considered a radical opinion website by Homeland Security Administration and the Library!!!!!!!!!!!! She said that is according to the filter the Library uses. TALK ABOUT CENSORSHIP AND BOOK BURNING!!! So I couldnt get the copies made. I have been hearing about how the internet is censoring, shadowbanning, and unsubscribing people from Conservative websites and NOW I BELIEVE IT!!!! I experienced it first hand. WOW! I thought I should let you know. Truly, we are living in Orwellian times!

Why in the world would they want to censor me?

The only radical opinions that I have are the exact same ones that conservatives, Christians and patriots have had ever since this country began. Unfortunately, those opinions are now considered radical because of how far this nation has shifted in recent years.

If our founders were around today, they would definitely be on the Internet, and without a doubt they would be getting censored too.

The next time that you are at the library, I encourage you to check if you can get to EndOfTheAmericanDream.com on a computer there. I would love to get a feel for how widespread this is around the United States. Obviously if one library is using this filtering program, it is inevitable that many others will be using it as well.

In 2018, we have seen an unprecedented effort to censor conservatives. YouTube has shut down hundreds of alternative voices, Facebook has been taking down hundreds of pages, and Twitter has been so aggressive with shadowbanning that members of Congress are up in arms ab...

Twitter Suspends Libertarian Accounts, Including Ron Paul Institute Director "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

By Zero Hedge

One day after what appeared to be a coordinated attack by media giants Facebook, Apple, Spotify and Google on Alex Jones, whose various social media accounts were banned or suspended in a matter of hours, the crackdown against alternative media figures continued as several Libertarian figures, including the Ron Paul Institute director, found their Twitter accounts suspended.

On Monday, Twitter suspended the editorial director of antiwar.com Scott Horton, former State Department employee Peter Van Buren, and Dan McAdams, the executive director of the Ron Paul Institute.

US Is Now Allied With al-Qaeda in Yemen "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

AP Reveals American-Backed Saudi Coalition Forged Deals With AQAP Fighters

New investigation reveals the coalition cut deals with extremist fighters

By Andrea Germanos

As the United States continues to fuel Yemens worsening humanitarian crisis, and boast that its targeting al Qaeda in the impoverished nation (AQAP) with airstrikes, new reporting reveals that the U.S.- and U.K-backed Saudi coalition waging a bombing campaign there is recruiting al Qaeda fighters to join its ranks, and paying off the extremists to leave areas.

Soon after the Saudi-led coalition, with the United Arab Emirates being a key partner, began its bombing campaign in Yemen against the Houthi rebels in 2015, it was reported that al Qaeda militants were fighting on the same side as the Saudi militia to defeat the Iran-linked Houthis. The new Associated Press investigation, however, reveals that the coalition has made secret deals with al-Qaeda fighters, paying some to leave key cities and towns and letting others retreat with weapons, equipment, and wads of looted cash.

Beyond that, the coalition-backed militias actively recruit al-Qaeda militants, APfound, based on on-the-ground reporting including interviews with members of al Qaeda, tribal mediators, Yemeni security officers, and militia commanders.

The earliest such deal took place in the spring of 2016 when thousands of al-Qaeda fighters pull out[ed]of Mukalla, a port city. From AP:

The militants were guaranteed a safe route out and allowed to keep weapons and cash looted from the cityup to $100 million by some estimatesaccording to five sources, including military, security, and government officials. []

Coalition-backed forces moved in two days later, announcing that hundreds of militants were killed and hailing the capture as part of joint international efforts to defeat the terrorist organizations in Yemen.

Burial Mound Full of Treasures Discovered in Kazakhstan "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

Archaeologists have discovered a priceless treasure in one of the kurgans on the Eleke Sazy Plateau, proving the skillfulness of the ancient craftsmen and discovering another lost page of the countrys history.

By Sputnik International

The Kazakh government has announced a historical archaeological find in the Tarbagatai Mountains in the northeastern part of the country a trove which dates back nearly 2,800 years. The team of experts has uncovered more than 3,000 golden and precious metal pieces of jewelry, including bell-shaped earrings, gold plates, chains and necklaces, Kazinform reports. Other findings include crafted animal figures, created by the sophisticated craftsmen of the past and a number of golden beads, which were used to decorate the clothes of the ancient people of Saka. The large number of valuable finds in this burial mound led us to believe that a man and a woman are buried here  the reigning persons or people who belonged to the elite of Saka society, Professor Samashev, the head of the team, told Kitco News.

The kurgan (burial mound) had been suspected of being an archaeological site for a long time. The first excavations on the Eleke Sazy Plateau in the Tarbagatai Mountains date back to the 18th century under the rule of Russian Emperor Peter the Great. There are nearly 200 kurgans such as this; however, many of the graves were robbed over time. The current mound was first excavated two years ago, but only now is the archaeologist ready to present the results of their excavations to a broader audience. According to the findings, this place could have been the last resort of the elite Saka couple, whose graves are yet to be found.

Archaeologists called the treasure priceless, as it reveals mining, trade, gold and ancient metal smelting techniques. We are the heirs of the great people and great technologies, said Governor of the East Kazakhstan region Danial Akhmetov, noting that this find could provide a completely new perspective on the history of Kazakhstan.

The Saka were a nomadic nation and spoke a language that is most closely associated with Persian. They were first recorded in the 9th century BC as one of the Scythian groups that ruled over the Eurasian Steppe for centuries. From Central Asia, they expanded into Iran and India. Yet it remains a mystery what happened to them, as historians have very little information about the Saka after this time, with the most recent artefacts being discovered only during the 20th century. The Eleke Sazy Plateau was seen as paradise by the Saka kings, the historians said, which is why there are so many kurgans located there. There are a lot of burial mounds here and the prospects are very great, leading Kazakh archaeologist Yerben Oralbai told The Sun.

Tommy Robinson Banned From Instagram "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

By Big League Politics

Alex Jones and Infowars have been banned from Spotify, Apple, Facebook, and now YouTube, but the social media giant Instagram has now joined in the censorship of conservatives and anyone considered right of center. Tommy Robinsons account on Instagram has been deleted.

Big League Politics own Peter DAbrosca tweeted a screenshot earlier showing that when one tries to search for Robinsons account on Instagram,(realtommyrobinson), the search comes back with the result user not found.

Robinson just left jail 5 days ago. He had originally been sentenced to 13 months in jail for filming outside a grooming gang trial, but is now a free man. Robinson was given 10 months for contempt of court, which he admitted to, and an extra three months for breaching a suspended sentence on separate charges.

Judge Geoffrey Marson told Robinson his actions were a serious aggravating feature, adding Everyone understands the right to freedom of speech but there are responsibilities and obligations. I am not sure you appreciate the potential consequence of what you have done. People have to understand that if they breach court orders there will be very real consequences.

The original judge was found to have rushed Robinsons trial, resulting in the court not hearing which parts of the footage taken by Robinson was problematic.

This is not only happening to Robinson directly, but also his supporters and friends.

Big Leagues Laura Loomer recently reported:

An Australian political candidate running for the Victorian State Elections in Victoria, Australia was banned on Facebook this week after he posted a video in support of Tommy Robinson.

Avi Yemini is a popular Jewish activist in Australia who is best known for his video confrontations that focus on the Islamification of Australia. Yemini was notified by Facebook on August 2 that his page was unpublished for hate speech.

Israel welcomes murder of Syrian scientist but denies any involvement in assassination "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

By RT News

Israels minister of intelligence says he welcomes news that a Syrian scientist was killed by a car bomb, even as Tel Aviv denies any part in the murder. The New York Times reported that Israels Mossad was behind the attack.

Intelligence and Transportation Minister Yisrael Katz weighed in on allegations that Israeli Mossad agents killed Dr. Aziz Asbar near the northwestern Syrian city of Masyaf, commenting that assuming that [Asbar] was indeed involved in terrorist activity, I welcome his departure from the world.

Asbar, the research director at Syrias Scientific Studies and Research Center, was believed to be developing a secret weapons manufacturing facility with the help of Iran, which was to be used to manufacture precision-guided missiles in Syria. He was killed on Saturday by an explosive device planted on his car.

Tel Aviv has remained tight-lipped about any involvement in Asbars murder. Every day in the Middle East there are hundreds of explosions and settling of scores, Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman told Israels Channel 2 News. Every time, they try to place the blame on us. So we wont take this too seriously.

Citing an unnamed official from a Middle Eastern intelligence agency, the New York Times reported Monday that Israeli agents were behind Asbars murder, claiming that the Mossad had been tracking Mr Asbar for a long time. According to unnamed officials cited by the Times, Asbar was targeted by Israel because he was helping Syria to develop long-range missiles accurate enough to target Israeli cities hundreds of miles away.

Syrias al-Watan daily newspaper said that Asbar was killed because of his important work on Syrian defense systems, writing in a commentary published on Tuesday that yet again the Israeli enemy has assassinated one of the greatest Syrian minds.

As The World Burns, Are We Witnessing Geo-Engineered Genocide By Laser Fire? "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

More Evidence Weather Modification Programs Are Wreaking Havoc Upon The Planet

By Stefan Stanford

With Europe now facing one of its hottest days ever with a killer heatwave scorching local temperature records all across the continent while taking more lives and leading to people sleeping in supermarket refrigerator aisles, the death toll from the devastating wildfires in Greece rose to nearly 100 people and as we see within this ANP story, fires continue to spread across much of the Western half of the United States.

As you can see in the screenshot weve taken above from the website FireWeatherAvalanche, there are currently 2,032 active wildfires going on across America at this moment, nearly all of them in the Western half of the country.

And while summer wildfires arent out of the ordinary, as Dane Wigington reported in this July 30th story over at his GeoEngineering Watch website, while all official sources are blaming the extreme fires on global warming, none of the official sources are blaming climate engineering programs. From Wigingtons story:

Though there are countless forms of human activity damaging the climate and biosphere, illegal global climate engineering / solar radiation management operations are a primary causal factor fueling catastrophic wildfires all over the globe (which official sources are not disclosing). Climate engineering is completely disrupting the hydrological cycle, triggering increasing dry lightning, destroying the ozone layer, contaminating soils, and covering everything at ground level with an incendiary dust (due to the fallout from atmosphere spraying programs). The 10 minute video below (ANP: the final video at the bottom of this story) elaborates on the direct effect geoengineering operations are having on forest fires, their behavior and their frequency. Geoengineering is nothing less than weather warfare.

Other recent western infernos also confirm the impact of climate intervention operations. The satellite animation below was recorded on October 11th, 2017, it is important to examine carefully. Anomalous, counter-directional and extreme wind patterns over the core wildfire region was a major contributing factor in the fi...

Saudis Apologize To Canada For 9/11-Style Attack Tweet "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

By Zero Hedge

The last 24 hours or so have seen Saudi officials escalate their retaliation against Canada, suspending diplomatic ties and halting new trade dealings following comments by Canadian Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland criticizing the kingdom for arrests of womens rights activists.

Canada said it was gravely concerned over a new wave of arrests of women and human rights campaigners in the kingdom, including award-winning gender rights activist Samar Badawi.

However, the Saudis may have gone a little too far with their threats after posting an image to Twitter that showed a passenger plane flying towards the CN Tower in Toronto, appearing to threaten a 9/11-style attack on Canada today.

The inflammatory photo was captioned:

As the Arabic saying goes: He who interferes with what doesnt concern him finds what doesnt please him.

The text sticking ones nose where it doesnt belong! was also superimposed over the image.

Facebook is now asking major US banks for your financial data "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

By True Pundit

Facebook is asking major U.S. banks for financial data in order to provide more online shopping services and to track consumer spending habits, The Wall Street Journal reported.

But according to the Journal, financial institutions are reluctant to partner with the social media network over privacy concerns. One bank has reportedly pulled out of discussions with Facebook because of the issue.

The news comes as Facebook struggles to fend off concerns that arose from a privacy scandal in which a political consulting firm obtained data on 87 million users without their knowledge.

Facebook told the paper that any financial information it obtains would not be shared with third parties or used to target advertisements.

We dont use purchase data from banks or credit card companies for ads, Facebook spokeswoman Elisabeth Diana told the Journal. We also dont have special relationships, partnerships, or contracts with banks or credit card companies to use their customers purchase data for ads. READ MORE

Fmr Education Secretary Admits US Students are Failing Because Education System Runs on Lies "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

Were not top 10 in anything, said a former education secretary who is calling out politicians for creating a public education system that runs on lies.

By Rachel Blevins

Typically, when Americans hear someone say that the education system in the United States runs on lies, they would expect the statement to come from a disgruntled parent or studentbut now it is coming from the former Secretary of Education, as he admits that the U.S. lies to families on a daily basis by promising them a quality education through public schools.

Arne Duncan, who served as education secretary for the Obama Administration, now appears to be calling out all sides of the spectrum for failing to prioritize the next generation. In an interview with CBS Face The Nation, Duncan argued that politicians are never held accountable for failing students and teachers.

We say we value education but we never vote on education, we never hold politicians accountable local, state, or national level for getting better results, higher graduation rates, more people graduate from college, Duncan said. We say we value teachers but we dont pay teachers, we dont support them. We dont mentor them, the way they need to do their incredibly important, tough, complex work.

As a nation, were not top 10 in anything, Duncan said. And he has a solid pointthe U.S. Department of Education released a troubling set of statistics in May, which showed that the majority of eighth graders in public schools are not proficient in reading or basic math.

According to a report from the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP), only 34 percent of eighth-grade students in American public schools were proficient in mathematics in 2017. That number varied by state, with proficiency rates as high as 50 percent in Massachusetts and as low as 17 percent in Louisiana.

The reading report from NAEP revealed that last year, only 36 percent of eighth-grade students in American public schools were proficient in reading. That number also varied by state with proficiency rates as high as 49 percent in Massachusetts and as low as 24 percent in New Mexico.

Duncan also noted that the U.S. has raised a gene...

If You Think Socialisms Unaffordable, You Dont Understand Capitalism "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

How Hidden Hyperinflation Left Americans Broke, and What to do About It

In this essay, Im going to challenge (wait, I mean smash) the funny, foolish, backwards myth that socialism is too expensive!!which no one should believe.

See that poor guy above pushing a wheelbarrow full of money to pay for basic things? Thats what Americans have had to begin doing, now, too, only to capitalismand maybe they dont quite understand how or why yet. If you think socialisms unaffordableyou dont understand capitalism.

(So drop your ideological biases right hereif you want to learn something, that is. That myth, by the way, isnt economics, my friends. Its just financial engineering. The economics are very, very simple. I am going to explain them to you in a very straightforward waybut one which I think no one has taught you to really think about yet.)

Theres a principle which I dont think anyones explaining to Americansat least not well. Theyre already paying for the very things that social democracy would provide. That money doesnt have to be found or raised. Its already pouring out of their pockets, like a huge river, into the coffers of predatory capitalism. Theres no need to worry about how to pay for socialism, because Americans are massively, gigantically overpaying capitalism, to a degree unseen in modern history, for the basics of life (and they are paying not just with money, but with time, energy, trust, meaning, purpose, belonging, health, their kids, and life itself, but well get to that).

Americans face a situation of eudaimonic hyperinflation. I put in pompous italic because I want to make a point. In Venezuela, prices have risen by thousands or millions of percent, for consumer goods. And Americansespecially fringe conservativesmake fun of those dirty, foolish Venezuelans, and blame socialism for letting it happen.

Yet in America, the prices of all the basics of a good lifeeudaimoniahave risen by hundreds or thousands of percent. Perhaps you think I exaggerate. Very, well, lets review the evidence. Healthcare has risen by two thousand percent. The price of education has gone up by 1000%. Food, 300%. Rent and house prices, 400%. Childcare, 500%....
