Mueller Indicts 13 Russian Trolls for Nothing, 2060 "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

- Natural Hemp Oil - Use promocode: BillStill for 10% off. Vets get 15% off. https://Naturalhempoil.com Good evening, Im still reporting on: Mueller Indicts 13 Russian Trolls for Nothing, 2060 Synopsis: Special Counsel Robert Mueller, after submitting a budget request for an additional $10 million to continue his work for the next year, just indicted 13 Russian trolls for trying to disrupt the 2016 elections in the United States. In what must rank high in the history of worthless American legal processes, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein heralded the indictments during yesterday's press conference as a great victory for liberty. Unfortunately, Rosenstein had to admit that no Americans were knowingly interacting with the Russians who were posing as Americans on the Internet. He also admitted that the Russians had no impact on the outcome of the 2016 Presidential election. Oh, one more thing, none of the indictees are ever expected to be extradited from Russia so there is no chance of them facing trial. Then why do it? To make it look like they are doing something. This is a perfectly safe play for Mueller. He captures the news cycle for an entire weekend with no threat of the accused ever facing an actual trial. If Mueller would have to actually have to bring them to trail he would undoubtedly face humiliating losses as judges across the land would strike them down because they were so weak they would be called out as baseless prosecutions they actually are.

*Black Panther* (evaluations, only minor spoilers) "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

As a besotted worshiper of Sun Ra, Octavia Butler, and Afro-Futurism more generally, I have been anticipating this one for many months.  Since I wish that one-fifth of all movies had an Afro-Futurist background, and so few do, I suppose I shouldnt complain.  Still, I was disappointed by just about everything except some of the visuals.

The male characters were weak and most of the scenes dull.  Furthermore, I found the movie uncomfortably prejudiced.  There is such a thing as racism directed mainly at Africans (as opposed to blacks), and it seems to me this was it.

So many spears and wild animals?  How about holding a referendum every now and then?  And there were so many Africanist tropes.  De facto, I thought the actual message was strongly pro-segregation, although wimpiness on that finally kicks in.  The visual references to Narnia and to various Star Wars installments were fine, but was it necessary to cite the colonialist Zulu?  The contrast with the resource-poor city of Busan, South Korea was almost Straussian in intent.  Is wealth based on human capital so impossible in Africa?

I would say the more you know about actual African cinema, the less you will appreciate this one.

Christopher Lebron in Boston Review has written the best review (via Hollis Robbins).

How Social Darwinism Destroyed America From the Inside "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

Or, What Happens When the Average Person Believes in the Survival of the Fittest?

Whenever I look at the States today, versus its rich world peers, an observation leaps out at me. Americas built a society on a kind of furious, single-minded dedication to one idea: Social Darwinism, or the survival of the fittest.

Lets begin with the obvious. Its economy is a modern historys greatest machine for survival of the fittest. The winners deserve extreme fame, fortune, and power Elon Musks $55 billion bonusbut the losers do not even deserve to live. Forget healthcare, savings, incomes, and so on. I step over them on my way to the cafe. Now, if you are the average American, perhaps you do not see the problem with all this. So what?

The problem is that Social Darwinism cannot build a healthy economy for the very people who believe in it, ever, period, full stopeven though Id bet most Americans probably still think survival of the fittest is the best form of social organization in history. Once you see how, I alos bet you will think its both funny and sad.

What does survival of the fittest mean? It means that the average is eroded or eliminated, doesnt it? It means that only the top percentagewhether its 20% or 1%of some population really makes it. But the average person who believes in it so fiercely isnt in in therehes at the 45th, maybe 50th percentile, if hes lucky. LOL. Funny and sad, no? Survival of the fittest comes back to haunt even the average personthe one who has become, somehow, at least in America, become its staunchest global advocate.

All that is precisely whats beginning to happen in America now. The average person now has less than $1000 in savings, a shrinking real income, falling life expectancy, no possibility of retirement, ever. They are going to live a shorter, harder, meaner, dumber, nastier lifethan their peers elsewhere, or their grandparents.

The survival of the fittest that Americans champion is working perfectly at destroying them. Social Darwinism is giving survival to the fittest, those at the very top, lets say the top 10%while punishing the very average, at the 50th percentile. The average person who thought, strangely, that being average wouldnt somehow get him selected out. But that is what survival of the fittest doesselects out the average.

(Hence, a middle class collapsing in three ways: One, becoming a small part of society. Two with falling quantity of life. Three, with a falling quality of life. Survival of the fittest is annihilating the average person in America, even though that very average person seems to admire and long for it: that is Social Darwinisms ghastly revenge.

My visit to the World Chess Hall of Fame "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

A significant part of a St. Louis block is devoted to the world of chess.  There is the Hall of Fame, the St. Louis Chess Club, and also a chess-themed restaurant, Kingside Diner, with a King on the mens room door and a Queen on the womens room.  The facilities are world class and very welcoming for the visitor; I am honored to have been given a personal tour (and to have eaten fish and chips there).

If you see a Slavic-looking face walking down this street, you simply assume it is a chess player.  In general, I am very interested in the idea of creating extreme mini-universes, ala Robert Nozicks concept of utopia.  This is what the chess utopia looks like, and it is in St. Louis.  In this world, rating matters more than race or gender or age.

Many of Americas best chess players now live in or near St. Louis, and the two best college teams Webster and SLU are both in or near St. Louis.

One lesson is the power of philanthropy in an otherwise under-supported domain.  I am instead used to seeing donations in crowded areas, such as economics or politics.  Rex Sinquefield, a former finance economist, and the developer of index investing, has been the major force behind the rise of St. Louis in chess.  The game is now played in more than one hundred of the local schools.

The strangest moment for me was reading through the plaques in the Hall.  I had known many of those individuals during the ages 13-16, but for the most part have not had contact with them since, or heard word of them.  All at once, I learned when each had died, and which of the few re...

Why Are We In Afghanistan? "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

Why Are We In Afghanistan?

It is long past time for someone in the shithole known as Washington to tell us why Americans have been killing and dying in Afghanistan for 17 years. Is it to steal the countrys minerals? Is it to control the location of pipelines? Is it to keep American taxpayers money flowing to the US military/security complex? Is it to finance the CIAs black operations with drug profits? Or is it to prove that the neoconservatives dream of US world hegemony is a chimera?

Here are some questions for you from a voice you never have heard:

Letter of the Islamic Emirate to the American people!

The American people, officials of independent non-governmental organizations and the peace loving Congressmen!
With the hope that you will read this letter prudently and will evaluate the future of American forces and your profit and loss inside Afghanistan in light of the prevailing realities alluded to in the following lines!
The American people!
You realize that your political leadership launched a military invasion of our country 17 years ago. This invasion was not only contrary to the legal and national norms of our own sovereign country but also a violation of all international rules and regulations, but still the following three main points were put forward by your authorities to justify this illegitimate invasion:
Establishing security by eliminating the so called terrorists inside Afghanistan.
Restoring law and order by establishing a legal government.
Eradicating narcotics.
 
However let us analyze how successful your war-monger leaders were in achieving the above three slogans in this illegitimate war?
 
Increased insecurity and fighting:
In 2001 when your ex-president George W. Bush ordered the invasion of Afghanistan, his justification for that felonious act was the elimination the Islamic Emirate (Taliban) and Al-Qaeda.
But despite continuing this bloody war for seventeen years and accepting huge casualties and financial losses, your current president Donald Trump to continue the illegal 17 year old war in Afghanistan acknowledged increased insecurity and emergence of multiple groups instead of the single unified Islamic Emirate (Taliban).
This was stated by Trump while declaring his new war strategy for Afghanistan and South Asia on 23rd August 2017 and seventeen years later, again ordered the perpetuation of the same illegitimate occupation and war against the Afghan people. Since your authorities admit the presence of multiple warring factions inside Afghanistan, it verifies our claim that by invading Afghanistan and overthrowing a unified responsible government of Taliban, the Americans have merely paved the way for anarchy in the country.
No matter w...

*Enlightenment Now*, the new Steven Pinker book "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

1. He is more likely right than wrong on the major points of optimism and progress and science.

2. The book is very clearly written, and it would do most of the world good to read it.

3. Contrary to Pinker, inframarginally I see the Enlightenment as a strong complement to Christianity/faith, even though the two at the margin often will clash.  The same is true for nationalism.

4. The Counterenlightenment, as Pinker calls it, is intellectually much stronger than he gives it credit for.  Its time for yet another reread of Gullivers Travels.

5. I am uncomfortable with statements such as Intellectuals hate progress.  That sentence opens chapter four.  I know that he explains and qualifies it, but it is not how I like to organize concepts.

6. It is not a good book for understanding the Enlightenment.

7. Overall my main difference with Pinker might be this: I believe there is a certain amount of irreducible irrationality (not my preferred term, but borrowing his schema for a moment) in people, and it has to be put somewhere, into some doctrine or belief system.  That is what makes the whole bundle sustainable.  It also means that a move toward greater Enlightenment is never without its problematic side, and that a Counterenlightenment can be more progressive than it might at first appear.  In contrast, I read Pinker as believing that Enlightenment simply can beat ignorance more and more over time.

The books subtitle is The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress.  And here is my earlier discussion with Pinker, video, podcast, and transcript.

The Result of Muellers Investigation: Nothing "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

The Result of Muellers Investigation: Nothing

Paul Craig Roberts

Robert Mueller discredited himself and his orchestrated Russiagate investigation today (Friday, February 16, 2018) with his charges that 13 Russians and 3 Russian companies plotted to use social media to influence the 2016 election. Their intent, Mueller says, was to sow discord in the US political system. https://uk.reuters.com/article/uk-usa-trump-russia-indictment/u-s-charges-russians-with-2016-u-s-election-tampering-to-boost-trump-idUKKCN1G023G

What pathetic results to come from a 9 month investigation!

Note that the hyped Russian hacking of Hillarys emails that we have heard about every day is no where to be found in Muellers charges. In its place there is use of social media to sow discord. I mean, really! Even if the charge were correct, considering the massive discord present in the last presidential election, with the Democrats calling Trump voters racist, sexist, homophobic white trash deplorables, how much discord could a measly 13 Russians add via social media?

Note also that the Trump/Putin conspiracy is also not present in Muellers charges. Muellers charges say that the Russians plan to sow discord began in 2014, before there was any notion that Trump would run for president in 2017. The link of the plot to Putin is reduced to the allegation that the plot was financed by a St. Petersburg restaurateur whose connection to Putin is that his business once catered official dinners between Russian officials and foreign dignitaries. https://uk.reuters.com/article/uk-usa-trump-russia-indictment/u-s-charges-russians-with-2016-u-s-election-tampering-to-boost-trump-idUKKCN1G023G

Finally, note that Muellers release of his charges in the face of dead news weekend means that Mueller knows that he has nothing to justify the massive propaganda onslaught against Trump for conspiring with Putin with which the presstitutes have regaled us. If the charges amounted to anything, they would have been released on Monday morning, and the presstitutes would have been handed by the FBI and CIA the news stories to file with their papers.

How did the 13 Russians go about sowing discord? Are you ready for this? They held political rallies posing as Americans and they paid one person (unidentified) to build a cage aboard a flatbed pickup truck and another person to wear a costume portraying Hillary in prison clothes.

How much...

It's Even Worse Than You Think "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

It's Even Worse Than You Think

Executive Summary

  • Just how rampant is the fraud in today's markets?
  • How last week's volatility spike nearly crashed the system
  • Why a massive price correction is both necessary, inevitable & overdue
  • Why the future of our democracy itself hangs in the balance

If you have not yet read Part 1: The Worst Threat We Face Is Right Here At Home, available free to all readers, please click here to read it first.

As I recently wrote, what broke in early February was volatility itself.  The volatility trade is one where tremendous firepower is concentrated because of a massive concentration of computer trading strategies that are all keyed off of volatility.

One of them is the so-called risk-parity trade, where computers are balancing and rebalancing a blended portfolio of stocks and bonds based entirely off of what the volatility index is doing.

So if volatility is falling, these algorithms are buying stocks.  Said another way, if you wanted to rig the cash market to go higher, you could either buy a huge amount of stocks directly, or you could buy a much smaller amount of index futures. Or you buy sell an even tinier amount of volatility.

If you sold volatility, you're be said to be short volatility. 

And who is short volatility, as revealed in their most recently released meeting notes? The Federal Reserve.

This is critically important because...

Why American Media is Dying "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

Or, The Black Hole at the End of American Media

Among the many novel social pathologies America is developingschool shootings, people dying from a lack of insulin, nomadic retirees living in their carsthat Ive discussed lately is a subtler one I havent.

Heres a Politico article arguingI kid you notfor a return to indentured servitude.

Heres Bret Stephens uses his new New York Times column to defend Woody Allen. Whatever you think of Woody Allenlets leave aside why I myself believe abuse survivorssurely a nation collapsing into autocracy has more pressing issues. So why this choice of topics?

Heres the Post telling us not to use the word totalitarian to describe the Presidenta straw man to begin with, because totalitarianism is a system, not really a personeven as he flouts laws, norms, and rules like the textbook authoritarians, kleptocrats, autocrats, and dictators of the 20th century.

I could go on. All this while scores of newspapers and publishers are shuttering their doors. Whats going on here?

Trolling as a business model is making trollery the dominant form of American discussion. Not a, but the. First, of course, there are the Russian bots which infect every social media network. Theres Presidents Twitter feed, the NRAs shock videos after every school shooting, and so on. But those are small fry.

Trollerys exploding like a volcano of folly, dumping the steaming lava of anger, ignorance, fear, and rage across the land.

Think I overstate the case? You would be ridiculed en masse if you published a column in a respectable suggesting that climate change wasnt real, or that indentured servitude should be brought back, or if you put surrogates on a news show, in Sweden, France, Germany, Canada, or Spain.

What is demand stimulus? "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

This is a sort of follow-up to my previous post.  One can think of demand stimulus as policies that boost NGDP.  (There are of course other policies that boost RGDP, such as supply side reforms, which work even if NGDP doesnt rise.  But demand stimulus boosts NGDP.)

We know from long run money neutrality that the long run trend rate of growth doesnt matter, except for second order effects like hysteresis and menu costs and taxation of capital incomeand these second order effects might be positive or negative.  If someone argues that a certain policy may be able to significantly raise the trend line for RGDP, they may be right, but they are almost certainly NOT talking about demand-side stimulus.

The upshot of all of this is that there is only one coherent way to think about demand-side policies.  When should AD be more expansionary than average and when should it be less expansionary than average? Its incoherent to say, I think demand side polices should always be stimulative.  That doesnt even mean anything.  Its like saying, I believe all Americans should earn above average incomes.  Any demand-side strategy should either call for stable AD growth, or else specify when aggregate demand should be more expansionary than average and when it should be more contractionary than average.

If you are advocating demand stimulus during a period of low unemployment, then (whether you know this or not) you are implicitly suggesting that demand-side policy should be more contractionary than average during a recession.  Not good.

A corollary of this is that terms like hawks and doves dont have the meaning that almost everyone thinks they have.  If you have a 2% inflation target, exactly how do you implement a dovish policy?  A hawkish policy?

What if we turn to fiscal policy; does that change things?  Not at all.  The governments national debt is constrained by the fact that the debt must be serviced in the long run.  This budget constraint means that budget deficits that are larger than average during certain periods must be offset by deficits that are smaller than average during other periodsto keep the debt manageable.  It makes no sense for someone to say, I generally favor a more expansionary fiscal policy than what is favored by Sumner.  Its not even a coherent statement.  If you say that you favor a more expansionary fiscal policy that what I currently favor, you are implicitly saying, and at some future date I prefer a more contractionary fiscal policy than what Sumner will favor at that point in time.  I worry that the insights of Robert Lucas are being forgotten.

How Will Public Service Co-ops Operate in Practice? "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

Let us not forgot that former Tory prime minister, David Cameron, championed, at least rhetorically, co-ops and social enterprises as part of his red Tory re-positioning of his party. The John Lewis partnership was often held up as a great example of a co-operative venture, and indeed a former CEO of the company recently became the West Midlands Tory mayor. Is this the kind of thing Labour has in mind?
 
Paul Mason, economic journalist, Labour member and Corbyn supporter has attempted to flesh the thing out a bit, although Im unsure whether is this just his interpretation, or has been sanctioned by the Labour leadership, as part of the official plan.
 
Mason traces the thinking back to the Keynesian period (1945-1979), when the left in the Labour party advocated workers co-operatives rather the huge state corporations that were the model for publicly owned industries. The new plan involves rail passengers, water users etc, the workers who provide the service and bond holders, who would receive a share of any profits. All would be stakeholders in these industries. McDonnell has confirmed that this would be the case.
 
This has the added advantage, if it works out, of getting control of privatised utilities at no extra cost to the tax payer. Mason says that it could be funded by government borrowing in this way, but it seems to me to be perfectly possible to do it by a form of quantitive easing. Hundreds of billions of pounds has been basically created by the government to re-capitalise the banks, so that they can lend it back us, with interest. Why not use this money to buy back public utilities?

Cowen and Smith on monopoly and stimulus "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

In a recent Bloomberg debate, there was an interesting exchange.  First, Tyler Cowen:

But Noah, I have a question for you. Youve written several columns about how the American economy is becoming more monopolistic. If true (and it is not exactly my view), that implies output could be much higher with current resources, even at full employment. A boost in demand could spur firms to produce more, rather than restricting output so much. So are you now a fan of these Trumpian deficits? They may not be your preferred form of deficit spending, but do you see them still as a net positive?

Then Noah Smith:

As you say, monopoly power could potentially increase the case for stimulus in bad times.

Actually, thats not what Tyler said, nor is what Tyler said true.  (Now everyone will be annoyed at me.)

One of the fundamental principles of modern macro is that demand-side stimulus cannot solve real problems.  It can overcome problems such as high unemployment caused by sticky wages and prices combined with inadequate spending, but thats all it can do.  Inefficiencies associated with monopoly are a real problem, and cannot be solved by printing money.  There are actually a number of issues here that need to be disentangled, some of which are quite subtle.

1.   Monopoly is a microeconomic problem, not a macroeconomic problem.  Thus its quite possible to have low unemployment rates and high levels of monopolization.  Indeed, Id argue thats true in America right now.  Employment in the monopolistic sector is indeed lower than wed like, but the result of this is not unemployment, its workers being employed in the less efficient competitive sector of the economy.  This is important, because the mechanism by which demand stimulus creates growth is by encouraging more employment (not moving workers between sectors).  But we are already at full employment.

2.  Suppose Im wrong, and monopolization causes the natural rate of unemployment to be higher than otherwise. Say Americas natural unemployment rate rises to French levels, due to monopolization.  Is Tyler correct in that case?  No, demand stimulus is still not called for even if monopolization causes the natural rate of unemployment to be higher than otherwise.  Thats because when you are at the natural rate, demand stimulus basically tricks workers and firms into producing more output than theyd like, by pushing up nominal spending in the face of sticky wages and prices.

The #MeToo Movement Will Produce Victims of Its Own "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

The #MeToo Movement Will Produce Victims of Its Own

Paul Craig Roberts

From the standpoint of the #MeToo movement, the wrong country was banned from the Olympics. It should have been the US, not Russia. According to MeToo women, the US Olympic Committee and USA Gymnastics covered up Larry Nassars sexual abuse of US athletes for years. https://www.strategic-culture.org/news/2018/02/14/ban-united-states-from-olympics.html

In contrast, the Russian doping scandal appears to be an orchestration by Washington as part of its ongoing policy to isolate Russia.

The entire story of systematic government-sponsored doping of Russian athletes rests essentially on the unconfirmed story of one personthe person running the alleged doping program. Curiously, this person fled Russia to the US and confessed. He is hidden somewhere under US protection. Why would the person running a doping program do this? Perhaps because it wasnt a state-sponsored program, and authorities were hot on his heels. Did he confess to Americans so as not to be handed over to the Russians for prosecution?

Some of the Russian-bashers claim that more evidence comes from non-doping Russian athletes who claimed they were disadvantaged by the state doping program. This means that they were not included in the program. How then could it have been an all-inclusive state-sponsored program?

The Court of Arbitration for Sport has cleared many of the banned Russian athletes of the false charge. Nevertheless the International Olympic Committee refused to admit the cleared athletes to the games. Faced with the intrusion of US foreign policy into the Olympic games, the courts spokesperson backed off. He said that the absence of any evidence of the athletes guilt does not mean that the athletes are innocent. In other words, guilty by accusation until proven innocent.

Is there any Western institution that is not corrupt?

The #MeToo movement will claim that it is notand clearly there are cases of sexual abusebut what happens to the movement once it becomes institutionalized, as it is in the process of becoming. Every US state attorney general has asked for federal legislation ending the practice of arbitration in cases of alleged workplace sexual harassment. The argument is that private settlement of charges silences womens voices and thereby perpetuates harassment, whereas public settlement in court roots out serial abusers.

Yes, it does. But it also creates a power that it is naive to think no woman would abuse. Just as ambitious women can use sex to achieve career advancement, they can also use the implicit threat of bringing a harassment charge. Wha...

A simple theory of service sector productivity "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

It is often about time, says Diane Coyle in the FT:

In many retail industries, higher productivity means faster service. There are many routine services where getting more for less requires less time to be spent performing them. This applies to parts of many sectors of the economy. There are past examples think of the impact of the washing machine on doing the laundry or the ATM on taking money out of the bank but now we are seeing much more automation in new areas such as legal search, scrutiny of medical tests and buying train tickets online. There is surely much further to go as artificial intelligence advances.

Of course a lot of service sector transactions arent so much about product quality as simply having a barrier removed from a basic enjoyment of life.  How long did it take the CVS clerk or the DMV to serve you?

Should this point make us feel better or worse about the biases in productivity statistics?  If nothing else, traffic congestion has become worse.  On the other hand, with smart phones and iPads, waiting in line never has been better.

Guantanamo prepared for new inmates US admiral "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

Washington (AFP) A top US military official said Thursday the prison at Guantanamo Bay is prepared to take new detainees, but has not yet received the order to do so.

President Donald Trump last month signed an executive order reversing his predecessor Barack Obamas ultimately fruitless 2009 directive to shutter the much-maligned US prison center.

We have 41 detainees who are there right now. We are prepared to receive more should they be directed to us, Admiral Kurt Tidd, who oversees the militarys Southern Command that includes Guantanamo, told lawmakers.

As of today we have not been given a warning order that new detainees might be heading in our direction, but our responsibility will be to integrate them in effectively.

US military officials have been openly discussing the fate of Islamic State group detainees, mainly foreign fighters, held by US-backed militias in northern Syria.

Guantanamo has not received any new inmates since 2008 but on the campaign trail, Trump vowed to load the facility with bad dudes, and said it would be fine if US terror suspects were sent there for trial.

During his State of the Union speech in January, Trump said IS captives would in many cases end up in Guantanamo.

What Should be Done About Bulgarias Population Decline? "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

Bulgaria has the fastest declining population in the world. From a peak of nearly 9 million around the time of the communist fall in 1990 Bulgarias population is 7 million today and projected to fall to around 5 million over the next generation. Entire villages have been depopulated, especially in the poorer Northern region.

A correspondent wrote me asking what to do. I responded whats the problem? Of course, there are plenty of things one could do to make Bulgaria a richer and better place to live, some of which Bulgaria has been doing and some of which they have not. The more fundamental question, however, is why the number of a particular type of people located in a particular geographically proscribed area should be a measure of welfare?

Instead of focusing on Bulgaria lets focus on Bulgarians. One of the reasons the population of Bulgaria has been falling is that Bulgarians have been leaving for better lives elsewhere in the European Union. Over one million Bulgarians live abroad. It is not always easy to move nor to stay in a village that is bereft of young people. But how fortunate is that those young people could move elsewhere. Instead of thinking of them just as Bulgarians lets think of them as citizens of the European Union. Problem solved. The EU population is increasing!

Is that a facile answer? Perhaps but note that in the United States great swaths of the country have seen declining populations since the 1930s or even earlier. We tend not to regard this as a big deal. In part because many of the areas with declining populations were small to begin with but also because we regard it as a good thing that Americans can move about the country. Indeed, because people have been free to move to opportunity the people remaining have not seen big declines in their standard of living. Ghosts are better than zombies.

Addendum: Bulgaria has some great beaches and historic sites at very reasonable prices!

The Darkest Hour & Manifestation "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

By Hailstones Melt

I saw an important movie yesterday, The Darkest Hour, starring Gary Oldman as Winston Churchill when he took over the prime ministership of Britain at the beginning of WWII.

The reason I say the movie is important, is because it shows in this case the way V for Victory as an attitude was projected and manifested in the public mind so that Britons resisted the onslaught of German invasion, and found resolve within themselves not to accept an unacceptable outcome.

Winston Churchill was the unlikely person who brought this into being by being able to stand against strong capitulation from within his own political party. According to the film, the King of England at the time (known as Bertie but titled King George VI) actually supported his stance against the down-playing and voiced opposition of almost everyone else.

It just struck me that to get the future you want, it is first kindled on the mental plane, then starts manifesting on the etheric plane, then makes its way in physicality to our plane of existence. Things really do coalesce before they arrive fully imported through all the channels of manifestation mood, emotions, weather, blood and bones.

David Topis recent article posted on transients talks about exactly this. Now is the time as many of us that can must grasp this concept so that we understand how we really do co-create with our own thinking and projections.

Perhaps get along to the movie if you can a superb performance by an underrated actor.

Some of us, in the run-up to 2012 and the 5 years since then have experienced what it is like to co-create and manifest aspects of our individual reality, and have seen it when the levers flip, and the outcome lies fully created and existing as reality in our lives.

Discovering the Joy of Life in Our Daily Tasks

Before enlightenment: chop wood, carry water. After enlightenment: chop wood, carry water. Zen proverb.

By Jessie Klassen

When you live on a farm, such as I do, your day is centred around your chores. There are mouths to feed (both human and animal) that depend on you, and they will always come first. All other activities happen somewhere between these daily chores.

When I was a child, my parents had a herd of milk cows, and this meant that twice a day they would need to be milked. I remember Christmas mornings, anxiously waiting for chores to be done so that we could open our presents, or on Halloween night so that we could go trick-or-treating (we were often the last kids walking from door to door).

My parents taught my siblings and I the importance of getting our chores done, and we simply knew that everything else came second to this. But I have to credit my parents for never making chores feel like a chore.

As children, my siblings and I accompanied our parents to the barn and were included in all of their work, but this was also a time that we spent together as a family and they always took advantage of opportunities for play. I learned how to 2-step in the alleyway of our barn in my rubber boots while David Lee Murphy sang, Dust on the Bottle over the rhythmic suction of the milking machines. I played with the cats, kept company with the pigs, and talked with the calves in the warm coziness of our barn

As we no longer have milk cows, our list of daily chores h...

Modi: India committed to protecting the environment "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

Both China and India have called on industrialized nations to do more to combat climate change and curb carbon emissions [Xinhua]


India will not shrink away from its responsibility to protect the environment, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi said at a World Sustainable Development Summit in New Delhi on Friday.

Respect for nature is part of Indias culture. We consider Earth our mother. India believes in growth but is also committed to protecting the environment, he said.

He also urged other leading countries to fulfill their commitments to a global unified approach to dealing with climate change.

The prime minister said different countries had different responsbilities and equity in reducing carbon emissions and thwarting drastic rises in temperature.

During the Climate Change negotiations in Paris, France in November 2015, India expressed concern that some developed countries would shift their responsibilities to developing nations.

India has always maintained that some developed countries have historical responsibilities toward climate change, and that developed and developing countries cannot be put on the same level.

Industrialized nations must do more, India has argued.

In the meantime, Delhi is commited to its Intended Nationally Determined Contribution (INDC) to slash the rate of carbon emissions relative to gross domestic product by 33-35 per cent by 2030 from 2005 levels.

Modi on Friday also stressed the urgency of water appropriation.

We are committed to ensuring that no farm goes without water. We are working to electrify every household of the country, he said.

The Gender-Equality Paradox in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics Education "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

That is a new paper by Gjisbert Stoet and David C. Geary, here is the abstract, noting that the last sentence is perhaps the most important:

The underrepresentation of girls and women in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields is a continual concern for social scientists and policymakers. Using an international database on adolescent achievement in science, mathematics, and reading (N = 472,242), we showed that girls performed similarly to or better than boys in science in two of every three countries, and in nearly all countries, more girls appeared capable of college-level STEM study than had enrolled. Paradoxically, the sex differences in the magnitude of relative academic strengths and pursuit of STEM degrees rose with increases in national gender equality. The gap between boys science achievement and girls reading achievement relative to their mean academic performance was near universal. These sex differences in academic strengths and attitudes toward science correlated with the STEM graduation gap. A mediation analysis suggested that life-quality pressures in less gender-equal countries promote girls and womens engagement with STEM subjects.

So what is the implied prediction for our future?

For the pointer I thank the excellent Kevin Lewis.

Why is America the Rich Worlds Most Extremely Violent Society? "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

Or, The Unique Problem of Extreme American Violence

You know by now maybe that school shootings every 2.7 days are a uniquely American development. Yet theyre not really the uniquely and singularly gruesome American phenomenonviolence itself is.

Heres a fact that might shock you. Did you know that America isnt just the most violent nation in the industrialized worldbut an off the charts extreme outlier? Iceland is the worlds most peaceful society. Canada is the worlds 7th most peaceful society. America is the 94th.

You could even argue that Americas one of the worlds most violent societies, period, rich or poor. Its 94 out of 160of which the last forty or are barely hanging on as societies. Its developed unique and weird forms of soft and hard violence, like school shootings, opioid epidemics, people dying of a lack of insulin or basic medicine. Meanwhile, murder, domestic violence, extremism, paramilitaries, hate crimes, white collar crime, even, more than likely, the kinds of systemic harassment and abuse that we now see revealed by #metoo as normal in America, are often at, sometimes beyond, poor country levels.

The question is: why is such extreme violence normal in America? Not just at the level of laws or normsbut for what deeper reason America seems not to ever developed nonviolent ones. Let me begin with an observation.

Just one. That is all it takes to scar a society for life elsewhere.

Polytechnique. That is all you have to say in Montreal. Everyone will know what you mean. When a misogynistic gunman shot up a school in Quebec, it became a dark part and essential part of the history of that beautiful and gentle province. Denis Villeneuve memorialized in the haunting Polytechnique. Today, he directs Blade Runner. Did you know that?

Breivik. That is all you have to say in Scandinavia. Today, after a long period of trauma, it is dealing with the wounds left behind. But only perhaps. Because they are still raw. It is still debated. How could we have allowed this to happen? What did we ourselves do wrong to fail our children thus?

Perhaps my point is still opaque.

What would happen in other rich societies if extreme violence, like school shootings every 2.7 days, became some kind of gruesome norm? I can all but guarantee you that people would march down to their capitols, simply remove their government, and install a better one. They protest over little things like taxis. Their kids being massacred? It would be done democratically and peacefully. But there is no doubt that even a weeks worth of school shooting...

The Dendera LightbulbEvidence of Advanced Ancient Technology?

By Ancient Code

The Temple of Dendera, dedicated to the goddess Hathor, is one of the most mysterious ancient temples built by the Egyptians thousands of years ago. Located some 2.5 km southeast of Dendera, this ancient temple is one of the best preserved Egyptian complexes, especially its central temple, thanks to which it remained buried by sand and mud until it was unearthed by Auguste Mariette in the middle of the 19th century.

Temple of Hathor, Dendera. Image Credit: Shutterstock

The area belonged to the sixth nome of Upper Egypt, south of Abydos.

The complex consists of:

  • Hathor temple (the main temple)
  • Temple of the birth of Isis
  • Sacred Lake
  • Sanatorium
  • Mammisi of Nectanebo II
  • Christian Basilica
  • Roman Mammisi
  • a Barque shrine
  • Gateways of Domitian and Trajan
  • the Roman Kiosk

The main temple features a set of reliefs that is unlike any other ancient Egyptian art.

Knowns as the Dendera Light, a mysterious relief has raised numerous questions among experts. Is it possible that thousands of years ago, just before humanity decided to start writing down history, technologies far greater than what weve ever imagined, existed on earth?

10 Things You Probably Dont Know About The Lost City Of Atlantis "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

10 Things You Probably Dont Know About The Lost City Of Atlantis

By Brandon Roh

We have all heard of Atlantis, the legendary island that sank into the sea in a single day and night. But who came up with it, was Atlantis a real place, and is there more to the story than this?

We get the story of Atlantis from the Greek philosopher Plato. Really, from two of his writings, Timaeus and Critias. The books date to around 360 BC.

In them, Plato wrote that the Greek sage Solon was given the story in Egypt by a priest. Upon his return, Solon shared the story with his relative Dropides. Then Dropides passed it down to his son Critias, who told his grandson, also named Critias, who finally shared it with the philosopher Socrates and others who were present.

This list should not be taken as historical fact but as a true account of what Plato wrote. Whether we decide to believe in the legend is our own choice, but we can probably agree that this might have been the first recorded game of telephone.

Many books and TV shows have been made about the possible location of Atlantis. A quick Google search will show that some people say Santorini is Atlantis, while others believe that the waters off Bimini are hiding a road to the lost city. However, if we look at Platos text, it tells us where the submerged island once stood.

The text reads that Atlantis came forth out of the Atlantic Ocean. It goes on to say that there was an island situated in front of the straits which are by you [referring to ancient Greeks], called the Pillars o...

Here Is A List Of The Largest Monoliths Ever Created By Ancient Civilizations "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

By Ancient Code

Massive monoliths quarried by man can be found all over the planet.

The most straightforward definition of a monolith? A monolith can be a large piece of rock that is intended or was used to build a structure or a monument, alone or together with other stones.

Ancient mankind has had the ability to quarry transport and place into position massive blocks of stone (monoliths) that weigh more than 100 tons.

A monolith can be a monument in itself (statue, monolithic stone).

Monolithic sacred stones are found from prehistoric times (menhirs) and in many civilizations, such as the Mayan civilization (steles representing the sovereigns or even the original zoomorphs of Quirigu) and the Aztec civilization (the Coatlicue monolith, representing the goddess of death, or the decorated monolith of Tizoc that represents fifteen victories of this sovereign).

The stone spheres of Costa Rica are more than 500 monoliths that weight up to 16 tons. These spheres are associated with constellations and astronomical events. Researchers place them around 6,000 BC, and others say that they could date back as far as 12,000 BC.

The first buildings composed of monoliths are dolmens, which date back from the 5th millennium BC.

Whopping Vaccine Injury Payouts for US Fiscal Year 2017 Released "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

By Brendan D. Murphy

Over $3.6 Billion Worth of Safe and Effective

Yet another shocking blow has been delivered to people who still ardently claim that vaccines are safe and effective, and that the only complications they can cause are mild. The US government department for Health Resources and Services Administration has recently released the running tally of the just-past-half-way-complete US Fiscal Year of 2017 for compensable vaccine injuries. Vaccine injury payouts currently stand at over $142 million dollars. You read that right. That covers the 377 cases that were thus far successful in obtaining compensation in FY 2017 through the heavily biased (to put it politely) system allegedly in place to redress damage done by vaccines in the USA.

At the rate things are going, we might expect the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program to pay out around $220 million or more by the close of FY 2017. To clarify, US Fiscal Year 2017 runs from October 1st, 2016 to September 30th, 2017 theres still over four months remaining to rack up more carnage.

Tonight: Partial solar eclipse on February 15 "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

By Bruce McClure

The new moon will take a bite out of the solar disk to stage a partial eclipse of the sun on February 15, 2018. This eclipse is visible from southern South America (Chile, Argentina, Uruguay, far-southern Brazil and far-southern Paraguay), Antarctica, and the far-southern extremities of the South Pacific and South Atlantic oceans. If youre in a position to watch this eclipse, remember to use proper eye protection.

On a worldwide scale, the partial eclipse of the sun starts at sunrise over the South Pacific Ocean, and then the moons penumbral shadow moves eastward across the globe, to finally end at sunset nearly four hours later over the South Atlantic Ocean.

The animation and map below help illustrate the February 15 eclipse path. In the animation, every place within the moving gray shadow can see varying degrees of a partial solar eclipse.

The animation helps illustrate this eclipse, whereby every place within the gray shadow can see varying degrees of a partial solar eclipse.

Warehouses With Israeli-Produced Weapons Discovered in Deir ez-Zor "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

By Sputnik International

MOSCOW (Sputnik) Syrian government army units have discovered warehouses with weapons and ammunition, including those produced in Israel while patrolling areas in Deir Ez-Zor liberated from Daesh terrorist group (outlawed in Russia), the SANA news agency reported.

The warehouses with a huge amount of rockets, mortars, tank shells and other ammunition were discovered in Al Boukamal and Al Mayadin areas, according to the Syrian state-run news agency. The weapons reportedly were produced in Israel.

A source told the media outlet that in one of the tunnels in the al-Sbikhan village to the east of al-Mayadin, the army units found a factory for manufacturing shells and explosives as well as barrels with a strange essence that could be used for manufacturing toxic substances.

Israel and Syria, which have a very embittered relations recently, and have a long history of troublesome controversies over the Golan Heights, have repeatedly exchanged fire, with the latest incident taking place in February.

In December 2017, Syrian Army units discovered a huge pile of the US and European-made weapons inside Daesh dens in Deir ez-Zors countryside.

In October, local media reported that Syrian troops had found weapons in the city of Mayadin, which had been the largest Daesh stronghold in the region, with weapons from Belgium, Great Britain, and Israel. As the Syrian military noted, the jihadists supposedly received these weapons, which were allegedly bought under Pentagon programs, in order to help the allies.

The pharma billionaires whose family company created the opioid epidemic are disintegrating into a bickering mess

By Naked Capitalism

The Sackler family is best known for the buildings adorned with their names thanks to their acts of philanthropy, which is either motivated by a public spirit, or by the desperate need for some reputation washing as the public becomes increasingly aware that the family fortune was built on the perfection of shady techniques for marketing addictive drugs, which reached its zenith when Perdue, the family pharma business, created the Oxy epidemic, by falsifying addictiveness research and aggressively recruiting doctors to hook their patients on their lethal products.

The Sacklers are your basic Koch-style family of evil billionaires, handing out charitable grants with one hand, and using the other hand to secretly fund initiatives to kill public education.

But they want to be known as pillars of the community the UK wing of the family have been given knighthoods and other honors for their charitable work and this has created defectors out of various bickering branches of the family as they seek to blame one another for deliberately hooking the world on their opioids.

Meanwhile, class action lawyers are working overtime to pierce the corporate veil and make the Sacklers personally responsible for the death and devastation that created and fattened their fortunes. Among the lawyers is Mike Moore, who made his name by successfully suing tobacco companies on behalf of lung cancer sufferers and their families, and BP on behalf of people affected by the Deepwater Horizon spill.

IRS, DOJ Subpoena Investors In Kushner Companies "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

By Zero Hedge

The financial noose around Jared Kushner is once again tightening.

One month after the NYT reported that the records of Trumps son-in-law at Deutsche Bank were subpoenaed, today Bloomberg reports that now the IRS is getting involved, and now US tax authorities have requested documents from lenders and investors in real estate projects managed by Kushners family.

The latest instance of following Kushners money involves gathering information from people who lent money and assembled investors for some Kushner Cos. real estate projects in New York and New Jersey, Bloombergs source said, with some deals dating as far back as 2010.

The Internal Revenue Service and the Justice Department issued the subpoenas within the past year, according to the person.

This particular tax inquiry appears unrelated to other investigations that have since burst into public view, and reportedly began before Special Counsel Robert Mueller was appointed in May to investigate Russian election meddling. In a separate action around that time, U.S. prosecutors in Brooklyn sought information from Kushner Cos. about its use of a foreign visa program.

 In the tax investigation, its unclear whether authorities are looking at Kushner business associates or the company itself.

A lawyer for Kushners company, Charles J. Harder, said that Kushner Cos. is not under investigation for any tax issues. It has had no contact with anyone at the IRS or Justice Department Tax Division. It has received no subpoenas or audit requests about its taxes. It is not in tax court on any audits. If there is an investigation about others taxes, it has nothing to do with Kushner Cos. or its businesses.

Well, it has not received them yet: once the DOJ finds malfeasance on the lender side, the borrowers details will be promptly requested too.

To be sure, if the IRS really wants dirt, it wont be difficult to find: the Kushner Cos. was embroiled in a criminal tax case more than a decade ago. Jared Kushners father, Charles, pleaded guilty in 2004 to lying about political donations, cheating on his taxes and witness intimidation after arranging a videotape of a brother-in-law...

NBC news has compiled a database of 200,000 tweets that Twitter identified as malicious activity from Russian trolls in the run up to the 2016 U.S. presidential election.

These accounts, working in concert as part of large networks, pushed hundreds of thousands of inflammatory tweets, from fictitious tales of Democrats practicing witchcraft to hardline posts from users masquerading as Black Lives Matter activists. Investigators have traced the accounts to a Kremlin-linked propaganda outfit founded in 2013 known as the Internet Research Association (IRA). The organization has been assessed by the U.S. Intelligence Community to be part of a Russian state-run effort to influence the outcome of the 2016 U.S. presidential race. And theyre not done.

There should be no doubt that Russia perceives its past efforts as successful and views the 2018 US midterm elections as a potential target for Russian influence operations, Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats told the Senate Intelligence Committee Tuesday.

Smart Meter Company Landis+Gyr Now Using Copyright To Try To Hide Public Records "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

Image result for Landis+Gyr

By Tech Dirt

Back in 2016 we wrote about how Landis+Gyr, a large multinational company owned by Toshiba, completely freaked out when it discovered that documents about its smart energy meters, which the city of Seattle had contracted to use, were subject to a FOIA request. As we noted, Landis+Gyr went legal and did so in perhaps the nuttiest way possible. First it demanded the documents be taken down from Muckrock the platform that makes it easy for journalists and others to file FOIA requests. Then it demanded that Muckrock reveal the details of anyone who might have seen the documents in question. It then sued Muckrock and somehow got a court to issue a temporary restraining order (TRO) against Muckrock for posting these public records.

Eventually, with help from EFF, Landis+Gyr agreed to a settlement that stated that these documents were (a) public records and (b) the company would no longer attempt to take down the copies that Muckrock had obtained. From the settlement agreement posted on the public docket in the case:

Plaintiffs agree that they will take no further action against Defendants Mocek, Muckrock.com, and Morisy with respect to two public records previously released by the City to Muckrock.com on behalf of Mocek and automatically published on MuckRock.com.

This all ended in the summer of 2016. And, indeed, you can still find...

Why Another False Flag Attack is Due "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

Why Another False Flag Attack is Due

By Covert Geopolitics

Another school has been attacked with a single shooter, supposedly killing at least 17 civilians. If this is not a false flag, then no civilians would have been killed. Terror attacks against civilian targets are mostly induced by an entity intending to divert publics attention away from it.

Considering that this latest single shooter attack was perpetrated a civilian target again, then this is a false flag attack, and here are the possible motivations.

First, we have posted a while ago that China will make it official by March 26 to dump the dollar in its oil purchases around the world. Its own citizens must never know what is coming. The ongoing market crash must be sold as another regular correction of the market.

However, they cannot escape from this one

Confirmation of Google Blacklisting Independent Media Websites "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

Critical Mass Has Been Reached: Confirmation Of Google Blacklisting Independent Media Websites New Network Geared For Alt Media Bravely Goes Toe-To-Toe With Google

By Susan Duclos

By the middle of 2017 we at All News PipeLine knew that the attacks against Independent Media had a good chance to destroy and bankrupt many Independent Media websites, as we have consistently documented how social media platforms were shadow-banning and censoring conservatives, specifically those that supported Donald Trump against Hillary Clinton in the 2016 general presidential election cycle.

Googles video platform YouTube was and still is demonetizing conservative political content, and putting entire channels on restricted mode, meaning anyone that had their settings set to restricted could not even see or search video from those content creators. Our video channel was one of those that saw all our videos disappeared in restricted mode, despite no cursing, nudity, or any other action that violates YouTubes terms of service.

Google also manipulated their search engine algorithms, making it harder to find Independent Media sites on the first pages of their search engine results.

ANP knew it was going to hit critical mass simply by watching ad revenue dwindle away from the Google Adsense program, which many use to be able to afford to run maintain their websites, including paying the bills so website owners can afford the time and research needed to produce original material. Google allows three ads per page, and as traffic in a non-presidential election year normally drops between 10 and 20 percent, yet the revenue dropped by over 60 percent, plus all video revenue disappeared, paid by Google as well, it became clear it wasnt just traffic Google was attempting to limit, but they were somehow paying less for the ads that were being served.

Is John Brennan The Mastermind Behind Russiagate? "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

By Mike Whitney

The report (The Dossier) that claims that Donald Trump colluded with Russia, was paid for by the DNC and Hillary Clinton campaign.

The company that claims that Russia hacked DNC computer servers, was paid by the DNC and Hillary Clinton campaign.

The FBIs counterintelligence probe into Trumps alleged connections to Russia was launched on the basis of information gathered from a report that was paid for by the DNC and Hillary Clinton campaign.

The surveillance of a Trump campaign member (Carter Page) was approved by a FISA court on the basis of information from a report that was paid for by the DNC and Hillary Clinton campaign.

The Intelligence Community Analysis or ICA was (largely or partially) based on information from a report that was paid for by the DNC and Hillary Clinton campaign. (more on this below)

The information that was leaked to the media alleging Russia hacking or collusion can be traced back to claims that were made in a report that was paid for by the DNC and Hillary Clinton campaign.

The entire Russia-gate investigation rests on the unverified and salacious information from a dossier that was paid for by the DNC and Hillary Clinton Campaign. Heres how Stephen Cohen sums it up in a recent article at The Nation:

Steeles dossier was the foundational document of the Russiagate narrativefrom the time its installments began to be leaked to the American media in the summer of 2016, to the US Intelligence Community Assessment of January 2017.the dossier and subsequent ICA report remain the underlying sources for proponents of the Russiagate narrative of Trump-Putin collision. (Russia gate or Intel-gate?, The Nation)

Theres just one problem with Cohens statement, we dont really know the extent to which the dossier was used in the creation of the Intelligence Community Assessment. (The ICA was the ICs flagship analysis that was supposed to provide ironclad proof of Russian meddling in the 2016 elections.) According to some reports, the contribution was significant. Check out this excerpt from an article at Business Insider:

Intelligence officials purposefully omitted the dossier from the public intelligence report they released in January about Russias election interference because they didnt want to reveal which details they had corroborated,...

Orban Fights Back: Hungary Pushes Anti-Immigration Stop Soros Bill "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

By Zero Hedge

Last month, members of the global financial and political elite listened with rapt attention as George Soros, the famed money manager and purported champion of open societies, blasted mafia states like Russia and his native Hungary, while also criticizing US President Donald Trump, with Soros admitting that his goal in the United States for this years midterm election was to reestablish a functioning two-party system

Indeed, octogenarian Soros is showing no signs of dialing back his meddling in the affairs of European nations, and the US as well. And nowhere has his interference been more visible than in Hungary, where his former protege Viktor Orban has sought to close the countrys borders to intruding refugees a decision that has enraged Soros, who recently dedicated most of his eleven-figure fortune to erasing all national boundaries via his Open Society foundations.

After declaring Hungary a mafia state last summer and suggesting that he will do everything in his power to remove Orban from power, the countrys ruling party has engaged in a heated propaganda battle against Soros and his agents that has included erecting anti-Soros billboard messages around the country.

Now, that battle is escalating as Orban and his party are gearing up for national elections in April. As Reuters reported Wednesday, the countrys nationalist government introduced legislation to empower the countrys interi...

New Data Shows Yellowstone Supervolcano Strained Magma Chamber Under Immense Pressure "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

By Mac Slavo

According to a group of seismologists who are monitoring the potentially catastrophic supervolcano, Yellowstone is under strain. This new report has reignited fears that the caldera could erupt at any moment.

Experts were alerted to the volcanos strain after noticing deformation. This process, where subsurface rocks subtly change shapes, is occurring beneath the surface of Yellowstone right now. Researchers state deformation occurs when there is a change in the amount of pressure in the magma chamber and experts are keeping an eye on the development.

Seismologists from UNAVCO, a non-profit university-governed consortium, are using Global Positioning System (GPS), borehole tiltmeters, and borehole strainmeters to measure minute changes in deformation at Yellowstone. In an article for the Billings Gazette, David Mencin and Glen Mattioli, geodesists with UNAVCO, say the strain signal is larger than would be expected if the crust under Yellowstone were completely solid.

What that means, at least in their eyes, is that theres lava flowing thats allowing pressure to build in the chamber, says Joe Joseph of The Daily Sheeple.  I dont know if this is good or bad!

These independent observations agree with other instruments at Yellowstone, like seismometers, that indicate a zone of semi-molten rock starting about 3 miles beneath the surface. The term semi-molten is used because the entire zone contains only between 5 and 15 percent liquid rock...

DOJ Official Bruce Ohr Hid Wifes Fusion GPS Payments From Ethics Officials "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

By Luke Rosiak

Bruce Ohr, the Department of Justice official who brought opposition research on President Donald Trump to the FBI, did not disclose that Fusion GPS, which performed that research at the Democratic National Committees behest, was paying his wife, and did not obtain a conflict of interest waiver from his superiors at the Justice Department, documents obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation show.

The omission may explain why Ohr was demoted from his post as associate deputy attorney general after the relationship between Fusion GPS and his wife emerged and Fusion founder Glenn Simpson acknowledged meeting with Ohr. Willfully falsifying government ethics forms can carry a penalty of jail time, if convicted.

The Democratic National Committee (DNC) hired Fusion GPS to gather and disseminate damning info about Trump, and they in turn paid Nellie Ohr, a former CIA employee with expertise in Russia, for an unknown role related to the dossier. Bruce Ohr then brought the information to the FBI, kicking off a probe and a media firestorm.

The DOJ used it to obtain a warrant to wiretap a Trump adviser, but didnt disclose to the judge that the DNC and former Secretary of State Hillary Clintons campaign had funded the research and that Ohr had a financial relationship with the firm that performed it which could be, it turns out, because Ohr doesnt appear to have told his supervisors. Some have suggested that the financial payments motivated Bruce Ohr to actively push the case.

For 2014 and 2015, Bruce Ohr disclosed on ethics forms that his wife was an independent contractor earning consulting fees. In 2016, she added a new employer who paid her a salary, but listed it vaguely as cyberthreat analyst, and did not say the name of the company.

The Guardian has been accused of willfully misleading its readers through an article it ran saying secret masonic lodges for politicians and journalists are operating at Westminster.

The article, which was also reported by RT UK among other publications, headlined Two Freemasons lodges operating secretly at Westminster, claimed there are two lodges up and running at parliament, namely the New Welcome Lodge, which recruits MPs, peers, and parliamentary staff, and the Gallery Lodge, reserved for the political press corps.

South African President Jacob Zuma resigned on Wednesday, bringing an end to his scandal-marred tenure and leaving the nations leadership in the hands of the ruling African National Congresss new leader, Cyril Ramaphosa.

The ANC should never be divided in my name, Zuma said in a 30-minute farewell address to the nation.

I have therefore come to the decision to resign as the president of the republic with immediate effect, he said.

Zuma, 75, said no life should be lost in his name and that no leader should stay longer than the people want him to.

Zuma nonetheless said he disagreed with the way the ANC had shoved him towards an early exit after the election of Ramaphosa as party president in December.

He spoke after the ANC announced it would hold a parliamentary vote of no-confidence in him on Thursday.

Ramaphosa, who was served as Deputy President since 2014, will become acting president and the National Assembly must choose a replacement for Zuma within 30 days.

Globalism, Technocracy, Socialism: Three Names For The Same Thing "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

Three Names For The Same Thing

By Jon Rappoport

Every universal solution for humankind presupposes a gigantic flaw in the way things are.

That flaw must be corrected.

It must be corrected from above, by a better system, which locks the door against an escape back into the old way.

The first casualty in this utopian process is freedom.

In fact, freedom is viewed as THE flaw. It opens Pandoras Box, thus releasing all human ills, crimes, devastations, and inequities.

Globalism (elites ruling the planet as one nation); Socialism (international governments and mega-corporations owning the means of production and distribution); and Technocracy (engineering world society as if it were a machine); these are all names for the better system that replaces freedom withwhat?

With control.

With control described as: fair and equitable benefits given to every human. Guaranteed security. Guaranteed survival.

And THAT is, of course, the con.

The con can be dressed up in all sorts of ways. Public-private partnerships. Distributing energy fairly in an energy-scarce world. Saving the environment. Reducing manmade warming. No child left behind. Open borders. Tolerating and celebrating diversity. From each according to his ability, to each according to his need. It takes a Village. A kinder gentler government will take care of you.

The price of your ticket? Your freedom.

At the heart of the con is the effort to reprogram the inherently flawed human biological machine. In other words, erase the basic delusion that freedom exists.

Once that operation has been achieved, a better world will follow.

The blueprint of your mind was ABC. We will change that to XYZ.

This horrendous concept forms the link between Socialism, Globalism, and Technocracy. It is science deployed to bring overall methods of control up to date.

Edit the genes. Insert visual images directly into the brain. Use drugs to dampen and neutralize emotional responses. Sidetrack and take away impulses that are considered anti-social.

Iranian Official Accuses West of Using Lizard Spies

The Event Chronicle Editors Note: Back in January 2014 Iran claimed that the United States is run by Nazi Space Aliens. If I recall correctly, the FARS news agency had originally picked up that story from What Does It Mean (aka Sorcha Faal aka David Booth). Also see: Iran Says Tall, White Space Aliens Control America, on Forbes.

By Paul Seaburn

In their possessions were a variety of reptile desert species like lizards, chameleons We found out that their skin attracts atomic waves and that they were nuclear spies who wanted to find out where inside the Islamic Republic of Iran we have uranium mines and where we are engaged in atomic activities.

Is this the opening scene of a new sci-fi spy thriller? It sounds like a plot point in a movie that could be called The Spy Who Came in From Under a Cold Rock, but its actually a quote from a former military leader accusing nefarious secret agents from the West of spying on Iran using lizards with secret powers. Or is he accusing them of colluding with Reptilians?

The Times of Israel reports that Hassan Firouzabadi, an Iranian ophthalmologist and retired military officer who is currently a senior military advisor to the Supreme Leader of Iran, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, made that unusual claim while being questioned about the mysterious death of Iranian-Canadian environmentalist Kavous Seyed-Emami, the head of the Persian Wildlife Heritage Foundation, who was picked up by Iranian police late last month.

A breathe of fresh air in Saudi Arabia? "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

A breathe of fresh air in Saudi Arabia?

Prince Salman has has now risen to an important position in Saudi Arabia and has gained serious political, military and Intel power.

By Preston James, Ph.D

The squeeze is now on many of the Royal Princes in Saudi Arabia who have abused their system and helped themselves to far too much oil revenue.

Prince Salman is now fully supported by his father and has also gained full support of Saudi Intel and the Saudi Military High Command.

Prince Salman is the Saudi First Deputy Prime Minister, the President of the Council for Economic and Development Affairs, and the Minister of Defense, and is very well educated as an Attorney.

It has been rumored but not demonstrated that Prince Salman gained support from the Saudi Military and Intel for agreeing to run a campaign against Yemen which has now failed. Perhaps this action originated from Israeli Likudists who have a long history of easily manipulating the Saudi High Command and Saudi Intel and also being conned by the CIA and Israelis into financing their frequent terror operations. Prince Salman is highly intelligent and is expected to quickly learn from such mistakes.

Prince Salman is a genuine tough guy, a serious nationalist and patriot, is not messing around, and is deadly serious about balancing Saudi Books for the first time in many years. It is now expected that he will do whatever is necessary to help Saudi Arabia survive as a nation-state, even if major social and economic changes are required.

He mandated a new law that women can now drive and more western type changes are coming. He is appears to be committed to westernizing Saudi Arabia as necessary to develop strong business relationships and trade pacts with other nations.

So far he is not at any risk for a coup detat despite the fact some powerful, older royal princes who were displaced from power by him have tried (and failed) and do not want to yield their previous power and excess wealth.

So far there is still oppression of dissent in Saudi Arabia, maybe even worse right now for a while. But it is expected to decrease over time as Saudi Arabia becomes more westernized in order to develop economically and learns to cooperate with other nations.

It is likely that Prince Salman knows th...
