Trump's Reads "The Snake" Again to CPAC, 2074 "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

- Virtual Shield VPN - the easiest way to create a home VPN. Go to: https://www.virtualshield.com/billstill Good morning, Im still reporting on: Trump's Reads "The Snake" Again to CPAC, 2074 Synopsis: I have to admit I was choking back tears at several points in this speech. It was the most reminiscent of his campaign speeches where we poured all our hopes and dreams for our nation into this man, after barely surviving 8 long years of the first president in our history who by obvious deeds did not love our nation. By God's miraculous intervention, the selfless energy of Mr. Trump, and the hard work of millions of us who knew this was America's last chance to survive in tact - Mr. Trump became President Trump and now, we have hope again. What do I mean by hope? The Obama/Clinton crime syndicate was on the verge of sealing our fates. Interestingly, this was Trump's longest speech ever - about 75 minutes, and included his reading of Al Wilson's and Oscar Brown's "The Snake". Actually, did you know that this was actually inspired by one of Aesop's Fables, The Farmer and the Viper. The left claims that Trump means for this reading to be solely aimed at illegal immigration. But as we are now learning, America has been at dire risk from other hidden dangers as well - and I mean specifically practically everything Obama and Clinton stand for. Trump knows how important it is to hammer home these dangers again and again because still barely a majority of the population believes it. So, sit back and enjoy that coarse Trumpian Trumpet crackling throughout your house once again.

No one - and I mean no one else - on network television would #1 dare to take a critical look at what's going on with federal judges; and #2 have the intellectual resources to put such a topic in proper perspective. For years, I've heard that federal judges are out of control. They are rewriting laws as petty dictators would. We've seen this problem explode with the ability of federal judges anywhere in the country to cancel laws made by Congress - the people's elected representatives - and even the President performing his perfectly Constitutional responsibilities of keeping us safe. What in the heck is up with that? Well, Tucker digs into this topic, with his reliable and prodigious research into this little known topic that is stealing power from the Congress and changing our system of governance in a way that for some reason has not raised any effective alarms.

Why Utopian Societies Like America Fall "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

Or, If Extreme Capitalism is What Connects Americas Problems, Why Cant Americans Figure it Out?

Heres a tiny question. What links kids massacring each other at school, no functioning healthcare or retirement, no safety nets, no mobility or stability, the average person having less than $1000 in savings?

Theyre uniquely American problems, of courseand what connects them is extreme capitalism. No, theyre not the results of capitalism alone, as in sole cause and effect, of course culture and history play a rolebut wed be foolish not to see that capitalism is the thread weaving them together.

(Imagine that in any other rich nation, there was an a product, available in every town, that was linked to an epidemic of child deathsbut whose manufacturers banded together, and kept it from being regulated, banned, or outlawed, with lobbying, persuasion, influence, and manipulation, no matter how people cried out, or how many kids died. Does that sound remotely plausible? Probably not. Only in America does such a situation existthe product, of course is called a gun, and the group is called the NRA. But the NRA is only doing what manufacturers organizations do, when there is nothing to counterbalance capitalism: band together to sell things, no matter their destructive effects.)

Now heres the strange thing. I read countless laments and jeremiads every single dayarticles, columns, editorials, about these various problemsbut not the underlying thread. This difficult week, for example, endless condemnations of the NRA. But. Why do I never read anything addressing the underlying thread? What does it tell us?

Capitalism today has become a kind of utopianism. A magical way of thinking that Americans cannot seem to think about, reflect on, or questiononly accept, just as communism was for the Soviets. Perhaps it always wasbut I will leave that for scholars of abstruse social theories. In the first part of this essay, I want to discuss what that meansand then I want to discuss why utopian societies like America are inevitably bound to implode (unless they grow beyond utopianism).

What do we mean when we say a social project has become utopian? We mean three things, generally. That it hopes to reach perfection, an ideal state. That through it, human beings, too, can be perfected. And that because it is perfect, soon enough, it will conquer the globe, spreading perfection in its wake.

Havent we seen such utopianism at work almost precisely regarding capitalism in America? It will create a perfect societyone that is perfectly free. By being perfectly free, in turn, people wil be perfectedthey will be perfectly virtuous. And because they are perfectly virtuous, they will r...

Help California Split Up, 2069 "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

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

Kidney Doctor Who Sounded the Alarm on Vaccine Damage was Targeted for Murder "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

Kidney doctor who sounded the alarm on vaccine damage was targeted for murder when the brake lines of her vehicle were secretly clamped

By Ethan Huff

Many in the natural health community are already aware of the recent death threat that vaccine truth advocate Dr. Suzanne Humphries received from an anonymous assailant. But what you may not realize is that Dr. Humphries was previously targeted for murder when someone maliciously severed the brake lines on her vehicle.

During a recent interview with Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, Dr. Humphries bore it all about her history working in medicine; the criticism and animosity shes faced over the years for departing from its dogma; and more recently the vulgar threat she received on her life via anonymous email. Dr. Humphries also told of how her work in exposing vaccine truth hasnt exactly done her any favors in terms of her personal safety.

It was right around the time when Dr. Humphries began to notice, and talk about, the increasing number of kidney conditions she was observing in conjunction with influenza vaccination that she quickly landed in the crosshairs of pro-vaccine cultists. She was falsely accused of being an anti-vaxxer, a categorical branding that represents a type of medical scarlet letter, and one that draws plenty of ire and hate from the more extremist jabbers who believe that people who dont vaccinate put all of society at risk.

If a person really believes this unsubstantiated dogma, its easy to see how angered they might become at people like Dr. Humphries who are spreading a different narrative. To pro-vaccination cultists like the anonymous assailant who most recently threatened Dr. Humphriess life, warning people about the dangers of vaccines basically makes one an infidel who must be taken out for the protection of the herd.

The brake lines to my Honda CR-V were clamped, and there was something wrong with how the car was functioning, Dr. Humphries revealed for the first time, recalling an incident thats she never...

Glyphosate Residues Discovered in Almond Milk, Bread and Veggie Burgers "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

Glyphosate Residues Discovered in Almond Milk, Bread and Veggie Burgers

New laboratory testing commissioned by Moms Across America has shown the presence of the worlds most used herbicide  glyphosate  in almond milk, vegetarian burgers, bread and Skippys 100% Natural peanut butter and Liptons 100% Natural Mint and Green tea.

The new round of testing follows on from similar testing commissioned by Moms Across America on popular U.S. orange juice brands in 2017, which showed levels of between 4.3 ppb and 26.05 ppb of glyphosate in brands such as Tropicana and Minute Maid.

The new batch testing results showed that conventional almond milk contained glyphosate at a level of 0.87 ppb and certified organic almond milk contained 0.07 ppb. The batch bread testing showed a range of glyphosate residues from 6.47 ppb to 140 ppb. Conventional veggie burgers batch testing revealed 52.20 ppb of glyphosate. Certified organic veggie burgers contained 3.27 ppb.

100% Natural Skippy peanut butter was found to contain 11.71 ppb of glyphosate residue and 100% Natural Lipton Tea was found to contain 108.90 ppb and Liptons 100% Natural Green Tea contained 208.29 ppb.

In November Moms Across America, led by Founder Zen Honeycutt, announced a nationwide campaign to ban glyphosate herbicides in all fifty states in the U.S.

All 50 state governors are being petitioned by moms and supporters through Change.org and local state residents from each state are launching a mail-in campaign today requesting meetings with their governors.

Honeycutt stated, Now is the time. Our country is in an unaffordable and tragic public health crisis. Toxic chemicals have been shown to contribute to or cause many of these health issues, especially for our children.  Its time for our states to take actions that our EPA is not willing to take. They can, must and we believe, will protect our citizens from irreparable harm. Its just a matter of which state will be the first to ban glyphosate?

Why Anyone Who Tells You Science Proves Things Impartially! Doesnt Understand Science "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

Or, Five Ways That Science is Culture

Theres a strange debate happening in the Anglo world. This one recurs. Science is neutral! cry the determinists. It is free of values, politics, ugly and difficult human choices!

How funny. Is it true? I wish it were. But it is not. And anyone that says this to you fatally misunderstands scienceespecially if their title is scientist.

Ill use a particularly noxious example to disprove it. Lets imagine that we were researchers at an American thinktank, who wanted to investigate (LOL) whether Asians were smarter than whites, who in turn, were smarter than blacks. Lets leave aside how repellent this is to any thinking personin order to explore why.

There are at least five places that values, politics, and culture will intervene in the scientific method we employhypotheses, variables, conditions, testing, and of course conclusion. And no matter how we try, we will not be able to find some kind of truer truth. Lets take them one by one.

The first in the very framing of our question itselfand the hypotheses it generates. Blacks, whites, and Asians are of course just constructs themselves to begin with. They are categories without any essential reality. For example, is a Sri Lankan an Asian in the same way that a Korean is? Is a Nigerian black in the same way an African-American is? What about someone who is half of either? Whether or not such groups share DNA is again a kind of question of circular values: do we suppose that sharing DNA is the bar for belonging to a group, when in fact the group itself is something we have constructed? If sharing DNA is the bar, then of course humans share more DNA with primates than differs among themselves, so our set of categories cannot mean anything whatsoever. All this is just a game of assigning people to groups that we ourselves are judgingbut that is a political act. Culture rears its ugly headand we cannot escape it.

The second place values will intervene is in our choice of variables. How are we to operationalize this idea of intelligence? Probably, like many American researchers, we will take the easy way out, and reach for IQ. But IQ is not some kind of value-free measure or construct. It is loaded with assumptionsmany of them dubious. It measures one kind of intelligenceanalytical, not creative, ethical, synthetic. It measures that one kind of intelligence in a deterministic and rigid way: with questions for which there are right answers. But it is difficult to imagine that such a thing tests intelligence at all, because in life, most questions have no fixed sets of answers. Our question is not choosing, thenbut understanding, creating, supposing, forging, and thus deve...

How to Run Collaborative Projects That Don't Fall Prey to Bureaucracy "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

 The Occupy Sandy Project Council successfully managed hundreds of thousands of dollars through a consensus-based process that, while sometimes contentious and stressful, actually succeeded in allocating funds to impactful projects in transparent ways that won the respect of myriads of people from city officials to direct action organizers. I've been trying to translate this "project spokescouncil" approach to other types of organizations ever since, with some success.

Here's how I've been applying these principles:

  • Instead of creating an "organization," create a charter that explains how to run a network.

  • Instead of figuring out all the things you want your organization to do, find people already doing these things and invite them to join your network.

  • Instead of creating a central administration to run the network, encourage projects to commit to performing the various functions needed to sustain the network, including administrative ones.

One of the great features of the project spokescouncil approach is that participating projects don't have to agree on anything more than a charter. For-profits, nonprofits, cooperatives, coalitions, grassroots projects, and other groups can all coexist without forcing their processes on each other.

The tech cooperative making tech for good less outlandish "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

Outlandish">

When Sion Whellens, a client services director from communications cooperative Calverts, met with Outlandish to help them craft a new way to do business in December 2015, he found Murphy and the other members were already operating as a co-operative. 

Tech tends to bring together people with high level skill sets, so its easier to establish equality, Whellens says. Particularly, the way tech people think in terms of agile projects can be applied to governance. They do project management on Trello or Vimeo day in day out, so that kind of thinking is already familiar.

Outlandish based their organisational structure on the Enspiral Foundation, which started as a group of computer programmers in New Zealand who wanted to put more time and energy into making a positive social impact. Enspiral has grown into a range of ventures, all dedicated to using their time and energy to have a social impact.

[...]

Rather than partners or shareholders extracting profits from the company through huge salaries and dividends, Outlandish members are paid what they consider a fair rate. This ranges from 150 to 350 a day much lower than other private tech companies with surplus going into a fund that members then decide how to spend. In 2016, 5,000 of that surplus went into building the school cuts website.

The Black Swan Strike "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

81iebqqqwtl

Thats what I am now calling the current industrial dispute that paralysed Britains research intensive universities. Readers the UK will be aware that academics at the countrys leading universities (Oxford, Cambridge, Manchester, etc. including my own employers, University of Liverpool) have been on strike since yesterday in a dispute over our pensions. The issue is this: the bargaining agent that represents our employers, an organization called Universities UK, claims that the pension fund has a massive deficit that needs to be addressed by some mixture of higher contributions and lower benefits for future retirees. Our union, the UCU, disagrees with this claim and thus opposes the proposed cuts in the pensions.

The employers belief that the pension fund has a large deficit is, in large part, a function of the curious, indeed rather extreme, methodology they have used to forecast future revenues and liabilities. The approach they have taken is designed to ensure that the pension fund could remain solvent in the event of a worse-case scenario which involves the closure of all of the UKs universities. This radically pessimistic approach is justified on the grounds that some industries with occupational pensions ha...

Can the coming Sovietization of American Dissent be stopped? The Satanic Cabal Control System "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

The USG is now attempting to adopt and utilize Soviet tactics to suppress the new American populism which is emerging from the Internets Alternative Press. The Internet is the worlds New Gutenberg Press and the populism it is producing is now motivating many Americans to take their country back from the City of London Zionists who hijacked it in 1913.

By Preston James, Ph. D

One of the key trademarks of the Soviet Union which fell in 1989 (thanks to the secret negotiations of VTs own Lee Wanta) was its unwarranted detainment and persecution of dissenters in mental hospitals.

Some were arrested through mistakes and by complaints made by disgruntled neighbors, others because they spoke out even quietly against the Communist party practices or read western-published goods.

After the mass-murder of priests, Christians, doctors, lawyers and farmers, elaborate delusional rituals were concocted by the Soviet State to demonize dissenters in order to justify their frequent arrests, detainment, persecution and torture, with many sent to gulags for long sentences.

These arrests, detainments and torture pleased the twisted, sadistic, cold-blooded, soulless Khazarian Communist party officials, who ordered such arrests and satisfied their demonic, satanic blood-lust.

Many Russian non-Khazarians were murdered outright, with many later sent to the Siberian Gulags for long sentences, where many died of various causes, such as malnutrition, starvation and disease. All this has been well-documented in Solzhenitsyns classic book, Gulag Archipelago.

The Soviet System was founded on the promises of Marx to create equality for all and get rid of the privileged class, but ended up just the opposite.

The result was a small privileged ultra wealthy ruling class of Khazarian communist party officials, the mass-murder of many Russians, and followed by the persecution of non-Khazarian truth-tellers, other...

Does the ACLU Any Longer Defend Civil Liberty? "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

Does the ACLU Any Longer Defend Civil Liberty?

Paul Craig Roberts

There are many signs of American collapse. One of the most scary is the fact that the American Civil Liberties Union no longer knows what are the civil liberties it purports to defend. Identity Politics has transformed civil rights into privileges for victim groups.

Yesterday (February 22, 2018) I received a 50-state survey from the ACLU. The envelop in which the questionnaire arrived said the survey was about how to protect civil liberties during the Trump Presidency. However, the survey (essentially a fundraiser) did not mention a single civil liberty contained in the Bill of Rights and added as amendments to the US Constitution.

Nothing about the sweeping away by the criminal Bush regime of habeas corpus with indefinite detention. No mention of the criminal Obama regimes kill list, which swept away due process by executing US citizens on allegation alone without trial, evidence, and conviction. Nothing about the sweeping away by both criminal regimes of the prohibition against spying on citizens without warrants. No mention of the shutdown of free speech and protest or of the destruction of civil liberties by unaccountable police who brutalize, rob, and murder Americans at will.

In place of civil liberties, the ACLU has Identity Politics. The ACLU civil rights survey is concerned with the civil rights of illegal aliens, of women to have abortions and publicly financed birth control, the fundamental rights of LGBT people, and Muslim bans. The civil liberties listed in the Constitution do not qualify for concern; only invented rights that are not listed in the Bill of Rights.

The letter accompanying the questionaire does mention the First Amendment and suppression of free speech emanating from the White House. I mean, really, the Bush and Obama regimes decimated free speech and imprisoned whistleblowers. Julian Assange has been imprisoned for years in the Ecuadoran embassy in London for publishing leaked material revealing criminal and deceitful behavior of the US government. By the time of Trumps election, the First Amendment was a dead letter civil right.

In the ACLUs Identity Politics, white people, espeially white heterosexual males, have no rights. They are not protected by quotas, political correctness, or hate speech prohibitions. No one has to worry about offending a white by destroying statures of white males or church plaques commendorating George Washington and Robert E. Lee. Try destroying a stature of Martin Luther King. A white person can be called every name in the book, and is. White DNA is said to be an abomination. Anyone who said black DNA or homosexual DNA was an abomination would face hate crime charges.

OWoN: Current State of Affairs A Social Revolution "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

One World of Nations
Current State of Affairs
21 February 2017

What started originally as a conceptual disclosure on apparitional Beings of Light Energy, Transhumanism and AI developments, invited then a parallel debate on the very mind destroying projects via Black Ops Budgets which poor Yohannes Riyadiand others been historically funding via Grey Screen Bank Trading Programs, for this grubby Deep State / Vatican Cabal. So close, yet so Gross! Money scalped which SHOULD have gone to the nations! To house, educate and help people! Stolen by the Zionists and Cabal.

WHO has stolen the future of Humanity with impunity? Who is funding these circa 1,000 US bases, and Rendition Centers, with whose money? The world needs to look at this ugly Cabal and ask, in whose name? Who also gave these rapacious Fed and Banking Zionists such power?

Where should Real Leaders life focus be? Will any focus on enhancing humanity? Not the way its going!

Nations are economically crippled, and beholden to the cynical duplicity of ruthless Zionist Banking, the War Monger Military and Agencies, Big Pharma and the Gulf of Mexico Petrochemical type mass polluters. Not least America. As we have seen, the FRB-NY operation has been allowed to run up Grey Screen Trading and Derivatives gambling exceeding $50,000 Trillion on the Riyadi account alone, while always publicly denying him his share of his lawful Profits, and even denying truth of its existence. Yet clear checks via Bank of Indonesia, and internal Treasury / Fed references expose their lies. As they have also done with a vast array of other Elders and Trusting Nations accounts. Everyone has been a victim of the cynical Bait and Switch US Treasury / FRB-NY scam shuffle. Always, they deny, and always LIE!

On one hand, as with all Elders accounts, they deny their very existence until Obama / Con Man Soetoro needed $15T to cover up a Treasury / Fed black hole. Then suddenly a completely fraudulent series of SWIFTs appeared cross referencing such AU volumes as simply did not exist, to carry out a bogus FRAUD asset scam to justify raising $15T over several SWIFTs which would be used to protect the illusion of a solvent US, by Money Laundering, Conspiracy t...

Case 4000: Benjamin Netanyahu confidant signs states witness deal "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

Netanyahu said to be called in for questioning in Bezeq case 4000

Longtime Netanyahu aides named in Bezeq corruption probe

By Udi Shaham

Suspended Communications Ministry director-general Shlomo Filber, a confidant of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, signed a states witness deal on Tuesday night as part of police investigation Case 4000.

Filber is reportedly suspected of bribery, fraud, breach of trust and other offenses, it was revealed on Tuesday.

He allegedly was Netanyahus long-arm in this case, and acted in his name in several deals that were allegedly done with the Bezeq telecommunications company and an attempt to sell the Walla media outlet. Filbers testimony is reportedly expected to incriminate the prime minister.

The Justice Ministry refused to confirm or deny the report.

The states witness deal that is on offer to Filber does not include time in prison, said a Kan Israel Public Broadcasting Corporation report.

Case 4000, otherwise known as the Bezeq case, looks into the relationship between Netanyahu and Bezeq controlling shareholder Shaul Elovitch, who also owns the Walla! News website. Police suspect that Netanyahu acted to benefit Bezeq in return for favorable coverage in Walla.

Meanwhile, it was revealed that one of the suspects who was arrested in the case earlier this week is former Netanyahu media consultant Nir Hefetz, who is suspected of accepting bribes and obstruction of justice.

Elovitch is reportedly suspected of giving bribes through favorable coverage in Walla, in return for Communication Ministry benefits for Bezeq.

Bezeq CEO Stella Handler was also arrested on Sunday as a suspect in the case. She is reportedly suspected of bribery, fraud, breach of trust and obstruction of justice. Handler will attend a court discussion on Wednesday on whether to extend her remand.

Police and the Israel Securities Authority, which are conducting a joint investigation, continued collecting testimonies on Tuesday. Deputy Communications Ministry director-general Maymon Shmila; former Walla editor in chief (and former MK) Yinon Magal; Likud spokesman Shai Hayek; and Walla news editor Michal Kl...

Oxfams Aid For Sex Scam Exposed "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

By Raul Ilargi

Oxfam. Im wondering if I should warn this is not for the faint of heart, or say dont read on an empty stomach. If so, hereby. I know I found it hard.

The first and foremost thing the BBC last week felt its audience should know about the sleaziest scandal to come out of Britain in quite some time -and thats saying something- is that an actress had turned her back on the aid organization. Your news in bite-size pre-chewed headlines.

While a guy who served Oxfam in Bosnia claims its nobodys business if he visited the local hookers in his spare time. The head office even specifically refuses to ban staff from doing that. Not violating a staff members civil liberties trumps a question like what drives desperate women -girls- into prostitution that same staff member pays for with money donated to aid desperate people.

Someone at the Dutch Oxfam/Novib office complained that his British colleagues should have provided more information, sooner, because now his branch suffers from the scandal (fewer donations). A branch that knew about it at least as far back as 2012, and passed on the info to the Dutch Foreign Ministry and Accounting Office. Who looked at potential -financial- damage in their country, found none, and located a carpet to sweep it under.

The only right choice for us, and our governments, would seem to be to cancel all donations to Oxfam, because apparently nobody connected to the organization is able to figure out who the actual victims are here. They instead portray themselves as the victims.

Of all people, its own chief executive feels a need, when responding to accusations of child sex abuse concerning his organization, to paint himself -and Oxfam- as victims. Anything we say is being manipulated. Weve been savaged . How does that guy hold on to that job?

Charities like Oxfam receive donations to help those people who have fallen victim to the conditions that exist where they live, be they manmade or due to natural disaster. Obviously, if Oxfam cannot (will not) even correctly identify these victims, it has no reason to exist.

Of course Oxfam announces more internal investigations when these accusations come out, but its too late. Theyve hush-hushed all previous such investigations, and theres no reason to believe that wont hap...

You would have thought armed conflict with Russia would be a bigger story "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

That is the topic of my latest Bloomberg column, here is one excerpt:

The relative lack of attention being paid to the news that U.S.-backed forces killed 200 to 300 Russian mercenary soldiers this month in Syria seems like a non-barking dog to me.

In many years, this might have been the most disruptive story, holding the headlines for weeks or maybe months. Circa February 2018, it didnt command a single major news cycle.

What outsiders know about the event is still fragmentary, but it sounds pretty ominous. One Bloomberg account notes: More than 200 contract soldiers, mostly Russians fighting on behalf of Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad, died in a failed attack on a base held by U.S. and mainly Kurdish forces in the oil-rich Deir Ezzor region. It is described as the biggest clash between U.S. and Russian forces since the Cold War. It seems that the Russian mercenaries are pretty closely tied to the Russian government.

And:

One Russian commentator called this event a big scandal and a reason for an acute international crisis. American foreign policy expert Ian Bremmer noted, At some level, its startling that isnt the biggest news of the year. Yet I have found that I know plenty of well-educated people, with graduate degrees and living in and near Washington, who arent even aware this occurred. The story has fallen into a memory hole, in part because neither the Americans nor the Russians wish to escalate the conflict.

Is this unusual affair a one-off, or an indication of a more basic shift in the world? I am starting to believe the latter.

Finally, do solve for the equilibrium:

As the tolerance for particular instances of conflict rises, the temptation to allow or initiate such conflicts rises, if only because the penalties wont be so large. Eventually more parties will experiment with violent sorties.

In 2015, Rodger and Jessica moved 1,500 miles from Arkansas to New Hampshire for the Free State Project, joining the exclusive ranks of nearly 2,000 early movers who made the decision to move prior to the Free State Project receiving its first 20,000 signatures. The Paxton family lives just north of New Hampshire's beautiful seacoast. They enjoy being surrounded by a supportive group of fellow unschooling, peaceful parenting, entrepreneurial-minded people in the Freecoast. While incredibly thankful for amazing porcs who welcomed their family with open arms, their only regret is not making the move years ago.

Rodger is the founder and CEO of Pax Libertas Productions, a company dedicated to spreading the word of liberty and free-markets. Currently, he serves on the Board of Directors for the Free State Project, as a Regional Captain for the Foundation for New Hampshire Independence and the Vice-Chairman of the Libertarian Party of New Hampshire. Jessica is an unschooling mom of two boys who keep her busy exploring all that New Hampshire has to offer. She considers herself a "professional volunteer," and enjoys organizing political events of all kinds, from press conferences to protests to PorcFest.

Rodger and Jessica are long-time liberty activists. Before their move to New Hampshire, each served in various roles within the Libertarian Party of Arkansas, including Chairman, Media Director, Secretary, and Head of Candidate Recruitment and Support. They have continued their service in New Hampshire, working as lead coordinators for the main pavilion at PorcFest 2017 and members of the Freecoast Festival production team in 2016 and 2017.

Scientists Warn: Beware of Extraterrestrial Computer Viruses "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

By Paul Seaburn

Is your anti-virus software up-to-date on all of your electronic devices? Did you download the special patch to protect you against viruses sent by extraterrestrial hackers? Did you forget and click on the cute little green alien head? Too late youre infected and youre probably going to bring down the worlds electronic grid as we know it. Thanks a lot.

A complex message from space may require the use of computers to display, analyze and understand. Such a message cannot be decontaminated with certainty, and technical risks remain which can pose an existential threat. Complex messages would need to be destroyed in the risk averse case.

Thats the opening warning in a new paper entitled INTERSTELLAR COMMUNICATION. IX. MESSAGE DECONTAMINATION IS IMPOSSIBLE (its in all caps because theyre serious) by Michael Hippke of Sonneberg Observatory in Germany and John G. Learned of the High Energy Physics Group, Department of Physics and Astronomy, University of Hawaii, Manoa. Their main message is that a message from an extraterrestrial intelligence (ET) cannot be decontaminated with any degree of certainty and the technical risks are impossible to assess beforehand.

Lets say youve got the latest anti-virus software, your patches are up-to-date and you never click on links in strange messages. However, what you receive is a simple text message a text message warning that aliens are on their way and planning to destroy the planet. One message to one person might not be so bad, but a Cc: to an entire country would cause some serious panic even if its a country that doesnt believe a foreign government could send emails that could influence an election.

While a propaganda message is possible, the authors suggest that an alien civilization bent on bringing down a planet without sending a fleet of warships would probably use a virus or some form of electronic contamination. Most of us follow the warning not to open attachments from strange email addresses, but a message from extraterrestrials would probably drive curiosity over caution and the ETI virus would possibly act like those were used to either bringing down systems and networks or infiltrating them with hidden software awaiting further instructions.

Assuming were smarter than the aliens think or than these researchers give us credit for, some super-tech could...

Scientists create human-sheep hybrid embryos "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

The research aims to solve donor organ shortages by making it possible to grow human organs inside sheep.

With thousands of people on the organ transplant list dying each year due to a lack of donors, scientists have long striven to find a way to produce replacement human organs on demand.

To this end, Dr Pablo Ross from the University of California and colleagues have reported a major breakthrough in their research involving the introduction of human stem cells in to sheep embryos.

Although currently only around 1 in 10,000 cells in the embryos are human, further work could eventually make it possible to produce sheep with specific human organs.

These could then be harvested for transplant in to human patients.

It could take five years or it could take ten years but I think eventually we will be able to do this, said Dr Hiro Nakauchi of Stanford University, one of the team members involved in the research.

While the teams results look promising, there have been ethical concerns over producing a sheep with human DNA especially if that DNA were to influence the animals brain development.

I have the same concerns, said Ross. Lets say that if our results indicate that the human cells all go to the brain of the animal, then we may never carry this forward.

The two countries on Friday signed six new pacts covering the education, energy defense, telecommunication, sports and counter-terrorism sectors.

India and Canada can work together in every sector. We discussed many issues, including defense cooperation. Terrorism and extremism are a threat to countries like ours and to fight these elements, we should come together, Modi said during a joint press conference.

He said he looked forward to building on the historic relationship that connect Canada and India to deepen their socio-economic ties as well as expanding Canadian investments in India.

We have the responsibility to set the right parameters to make the economy benefit everyone, and not just the rich. India-Canada partnership must create jobs, Trudeau said.

He went on to say that India is a natural partner and a trusted friend for commercial cooperation.

The two countries renewed their memorandum of understanding to enchance opportunities for Indian students engaged in higher education in Canada.

Canada and India also agreed to boost tourism and people exchange.

Monsanto Sues Avaaz for Identity of 2 Million Anti-GM Activists, But Whose Side is Avaaz On? "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

Monsanto Sues Avaaz for Identity of 2 Million Anti-GM Activists, But Whose Side is Avaaz On?

SPECIAL REPORT By Brandon TurbevilleNatural Blaze

George Soros and Monsanto are battling it out.

And the only people who are going to lose are activists and consumers.

This is because Avaaz, often labeled the worlds most biggest and powerful activist network in existence online, is being dragged into court by Monsanto. The organization has received a 168-page court subpoena in which Monsanto is demanding Avaaz hand over every private email, note, or record it has regarding Monsanto, including the names and email addresses of all of those who have signed Monsanto campaigns. These include Avaazs petition calling for a moratorium on glyphosate, which has attracted over 2 million signatures, according to GM Watch.

Now Avaaz is fundraising allegedly in order to fight the subpoena.

Avaaz points out that Monsanto has unlimited resources and states that,

If they get their hands on all our private information, theres no telling what theyll use it for. So were going to fight this. Because Monsanto may have unlimited resources to intimidate, but Avaaz has unlimited people power, and our members just arent afraid.

Are You At Risk For Autoimmune Disease? "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

Approximately 20 percent of the population of the United States suffer from an autoimmune disease. Are you one of those?

By Kristin Grayce McGary LAc., MAc., CFMP, CSTcert, CLP.

Will You Get an Autoimmune Disease?

50 million Americans suffer from an autoimmune disease costing almost 100 million dollars a year. Its a growing number. And while you may believe that youre healthy, eat well and never get sick you could have autoimmunity a pre-diagnosable disease state.

Any autoimmune disease always begins with autoimmunity where the bodys immune response attacks healthy cells and tissues, glands and organs eventually manifesting into a full-blown disease. Put simply, the body has misidentified a part of itself as a foreign invader and mistakenly attacks it.

According to John Hopkins Universitys Autoimmune Disease Research Center, autoimmune diseases are a special threat to women. Indeed, more than 75% of their patients are women. (1)

Sadly, autoimmune diseases are among the ten leading causes of death among women in all age groups up to the age of 65. (2)

Ive had an autoimmune disease called Hoshimotos Thyroiditis. About 90% of all thyroid disorders are actually autoimmune issues but they are left misdiagnosed or undiagnosed until such extensive damage is done to the thyroid gland that its difficult to fully recover. I suffered for years before I discovered what was really going on. I neednt have suffered and I can help you to protect yourself from autoimmunity by passing along some of the knowledge I have accumulated.

Conventional medicine practiced in the West has few answers for those suffering from autoimmune issues and theres little sight of a cure. It has been my experience that autoimmunity and full-blown autoimmune diseases are symptoms of deeper issues. Allopathic medicine tends to focus on relieving symptoms rather than getting to the root cause of the problem. From my point of view, autoimmune issues, such as allergies, food sensitivities, digestive issues, foggy thinking, exhaustion, weight gain, repeated infections, even cancer are red flags. Clearly, as far as I am concerned, they point to a dysfunctional immune system. And that can lead to any one of a number of crippling autoimmune diseases such as MS, rheumatoid arthritis, and lupus.

Never getting sick, may seem to you like a good thing. That youre doing OK. But it could very well be the complete opposite and a sign of an underactive immune system it m...

Leaders pledge to end Kenya-Tanzania rift "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

Kenyatta, center, wants to see trade ties with Tanzania revive and thrive once more following years of disputes [Xinhua]


Kenya and Tanzania are moving closer to resolving a years-long trade dispute that has disrupted the ease of business across their borders.

Earlier in February both Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta and his Tanzanian counterpart John Magufuli agreed to resolve all issues which have contributed to a trade dispute.

The two met at the East African Community (EAC) summit in Kampala, Uganda, which opens today.

The two hoped that trade between them on the one hand, and other East African nations, could thrive again.

In recent years, the two have accused each other of introducing unnecessary levies sometimes reaching more than 100 per cent. Kenya says this has left it with a competitive disadvantage in Tanzanian markets.

For its part, Tanzania says that its products go through a rigorous inspection regimen sometimes leading to three sets of verification thereby raising costs.

The two have also accused each other of putting barriers to each others companies to register as businesses.

The business rift between the two neighbors has impeded trade in EAC because the trade between them accounts for some 45 per cent of all goods traveling through the economic zone.

At one point, Kenyas exports fell by 60 per cent in 2017 due to the rift, the Kenyan National Bureau of Statistics said.

The EAC summit meets at a time when many member states have not done enough to fulfill their commitments to the grouping, the secretariat has said.

The Summit will look at ways to increase taxes on imports to the economic bloc, and finding alternative means of financing for business.

Millions of People Taking Statin Drugs Will Continue to Have Far Greater Chance of Harm than Benefit "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

Millions of People Taking Statin Drugs Will Continue to Have Far Greater Chance of Harm than Benefit

By Paul Fassa

Two recent articles published in the UK mainstream hard copy and online newspaper Express revealed theres something wrong with cholesterol-lowering statin drug prescription policies, quoting several doctors who claim statins cause more harm than benefit.

Dr. Rita Redberg, a cardiologist professor at the San Francisco Medical Center, states:

Unfortunately, until all data is available and discussed with patients, millions of people taking these [statin]drugs will continue to have far greater chance of harm than benefit. (Source.)

Dr. Rita Redbergs name might be familiar to our readers, because she appeared in an Australian two-part TV news documentary that has often been featured in several Health Impact News articles. Both parts were connected thematically and produced by Dr. Maryanne Demasi, Ph.D.

And it was Dr. Demasis British Medical Journal (BMJ) article and study review that the Express article was reporting rather favorably with quotes from other doctors supporting her findings. The articles focus was on the controversy it had ignited regarding the widespread use of cholesterol-lowering statin drugs.

Tiny Graphene Membrane Creates Supercharged Water Purification In One Simple Step "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

By Kevin Samson

Fresh water supplies continue to be assaulted on multiple fronts. Front page news at the moment is the unfolding disaster in Cape Town, South Africa which could be completely without water by June. According to some, this is as much the result of politics as it is the result of a three-year drought.

At the same time, clearly man-made disasters like the corporate hoarding of fresh water is on the rise. At the heart of this initiative to make water a commodity has been Nestle, whose former CEO clearly stated that water supplies should be privatized and that the right to fresh, clean water is not an essential human right. One look at how this is manifesting in Mexico at the moment should make it clear who gets most severely penalized for this policy.

Moreover, it is estimated that nearly 1/3 of the planets population is directly threatened by unclean water. Finding a solution to this ongoing plague should be of paramount importance; it is for this reason that I have repeatedly focused on novel new ways that we can take back control over our water supply and ensure that it is as clean as possible (see here and here).

A new filtering technique might just hold the largest promise yet for being able to access even large bodies of water across the planet that have become terribly polluted. Australias Syndney Harbour is one such place. Comprising more than 10,000 acres at depths of up to 35 feet, the Harbour is so polluted that scientists saw it as the perfect challenge to test their research.

How to Ground Your Energy "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

How to Ground Your Energy

By Tanaaz

Do you feel grounded and rooted in your being?

When you are grounded you are not only connected to Mother Earth but you are also rooted in your being and in the essence of who you are.

Being grounded basically means you are centered in your self and with the physical, mental and emotional space that you are currently in.

Even if you dont necessarily enjoy where you are currently at, when you take a moment to center and root your being to the ground, you instantly give yourself a launching pad to spring from.

Having a launching pad allows you to sink deeper into the earth so you can set your roots in order to branch out and grow taller. Just like a tree, the stronger the roots, the healthier and more lush you can grow.

Often times however, life can bring us certain situations, events or feelings that can knock us off our launching pad. Usually this is temporary and is always to serve a higher purpose.

Sometimes the launching pad needs to be moved, re-shaped, re-defined or completely changed and often this process can leave us feeling confused, stressed, all over the place, chaotic, unmotivated or stuck.

If you can observe this in your own life and are feeling a lack of stability or centeredness, you may benefit from grounding your energy.

Grounding can help you to:

  • Reduce stress, lethargy and a lack of motivation
  • Increase your emotional and mental health
  • Bring clarity to your life path and purpose
  • Know your own wisdom, thoughts, beliefs and desires
  • Grow stronger, taller and higher in all areas
  • Bring understanding to your situation
  • Reduce feelings of chaos, clutter and indecision
  • Take responsibility for where you are currently at

Creating a sense of grounding is really about taking responsibility for your life and the events and feelings occurring.

This doesnt need to be a harsh process, but rather one that aligns you with your truth, wisdom and your ability to plan and take action based on how you feel.

There are many ways to ground your energy but here are a few suggestions:

1. Be in Nature

Spending time amongst the trees and flowers that are rooted deeply within Mother...

How To Survive Your Spiritual Awakening "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

How To Survive Your Spiritual Awakening : Conscious Life News

A spiritual awakening can be a rollercoaster ride of up and down emotions, here is how you can ride the waves

By Luke Miller

What is a spiritual awakening?

A spiritual awakening is the emergence of your essence (higher self), and/or a connection (or a glimpse of a connection) with the oneness that connects us all. We are born as this essence and as time passes we often lose a connection to this root existence. A spiritual awakening is us as an older being with a more developed (physical) mind and body reconnecting with this essence which can sometimes come as a shock.

What can cause your awakening?

Sometimes a singular event which breaks your current routine of thought- for example, going away on holiday could force you to reflect when you are usually busy. Meeting someone who has already had a spiritual awakening can trigger one in us. A new relationship or the ending of a relationship. A new job or the ending of a job. An experience with a mind-altering substance, or an experience similar which could be induced through meditation, breathwork, dancing, singing, art or anything that gets you out of your head. A near-death experience, or a miracle that cannot be explained rationally. All can cause what seems like a spontaneous awakening.

It can also be a series of events, such as synchronicities that continually show up leading you in a specific direction. At times like these it can feel as if the universe is speaking with you in an unspoken language, and often it actually is.

Sometimes the cause of your awakening is not apparent and while there is usually a trigger of some kind, it is not always obvious without us taking the time to reflect upon it.

What should you do if you have had a spiritual awakening?

The first thing is to slow down, it can be a lot when your whole life gets turned upside down, so dont make any decisions that you may later regret. This is not to say that you should not make changes, you probably will. But in a euphoric state you can often do something drastic, expecting everything to just fall into place and this is not always how it works.

Accept that life may be different to how you thought it was, and try to take some time...

Men and the Divine Feminine "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

It is past time that we learn the balance the Divine Masculine and the Divine Feminine.

By Jill M. Jackson

A definite crusade is occurring to help balance the duality between male and female. From the #MeToo movement to celebrities such as Ashely Judd and Selma Hayek speaking out against abuse and injustice, the momentum is rising towards a revolution of extraordinary proportions. How can men play an important role in this transformation without feeling fear or a loss of their identity?

What is the Divine Feminine Movement?

For thousands of years, we have resided in a world of male dominance. The disparity caused by the polarity and the lack of balance has contributed to a world in turmoil. Like a phoenix rising from the ashes, the divine feminine movement seeks to counterbalance the inequality.

Instead of focusing on power and dominance, the divine feminine movement celebrates the strengths of the female expression including intuition, harmony, creativity, and healing. It honors the Goddess and encourages reconnecting with Source, nature, and beauty.

Women by nature are responsible for birthing. Awakening the divine feminine is about playing the role of midwife to facilitate the birthing of our planet into a place of unity and conscious evolution. It is about honoring and appreciating our Mother Earth for all She provides us. It is about appreciating the diversity of all existence.

The divine feminine movement is not about female dominance. That concept is not even a recognizable attribute of the female archetype. The divine feminine reveres all life. It is about choreographing a sacred dance of equality, tolerance, and justice.

How Can Men Assist in the Transformation?

Stereotypical male behavior is hardly consistent with the divine feminine movement. According to Wikipedia, those stereotypes include assertiveness, courage, and independence. Many men have their very identity buried in the depths of dominance, control, and leadership. As the divine feminine rises, men may feel their realities are crumbling. The perceived loss of control may cause feelings of uneasiness and inadequacy.

A few reminders and shifts in perspective may help men welcome the movement and assist in the transformation.

First, is remembering that they incarnated to raise their vibration and further develop their soul. By recognizing the need for the perfect balance of yin and yang or mas...

11 Powerful Mantras For Healing "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

11 Powerful Mantras For Healing

By Tanaaz

Everything in this Universe carries a vibration, including the words that you speak.

For centuries, people have used words for healing. Words can be used to share a story, they can be used to pray and they can be used to express a deeper truth.

Another way words can be used for healing is through mantras. Mantras are short, positively inspired phrases that carry a powerful healing vibration and can help to free your body, mind, and soul of any stresses.

The word mantra loosely translates to instrument of the mind. This is because mantras have the power to transform your thinking, and rewire thought patterns and belief systems that have been engrained deep within your subconscious.

In traditional practices, it was believed that you had to chant the mantra 125,000 times in order for it to really sink in to the deepest level of your soul. While this may sound daunting, even reciting a mantra a few times over the course of a week or month can have life changing effects.

In fact, mantras are so simple yet so effective for all sorts of healing, that I have shared 150 of my most favorite and powerful mantras in a new book My Pocket Mantras.

Here are a few of my favorite mantras from the book

1.) I know I am loved and supported as I move through the day.

Recite this mantra three times either out loud or quietly to yourself first thing in the morning or whenever needed. As you recite the mantra, cross your arms and wrap them around your body like you are giving yourself a big, supportive hug.

2.) This too shall pass.

Recite this mantra seven times out loud or quietly to yourself during challenging life periods and when you are working through painful emotions.

3.) I surrender my worries to the Universe.

Recite this mantra three times either out loud or quietly to yourself as often as needed. Visualize yourself taking your heavy coat of burdens off and handing it over to the Universe to take care of as you recite the words.

4.) I choose to feel good about myself every day.

Recite this mantra three times either out loud or quietly to yourself while looking in the mirror.

5.) I am exactly where I need to be.

Recite this mantra three times either out loud or quietly to yours...

But for liberal democracies, regulating social media is not so straightforward, because governments must strike a balance between competing principles.

What is the value of studying a foreign language in high school? "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

Bryan Caplan writes:

While promoting my new book, Ive repeatedly argued that foreign language requirements in U.S. schools are absurd and should be abolished.  For two distinct reasons.

Reason #1: Americans almost never use their knowledge of foreign languages (unless they speak it in the home).

Reason #2: Americans almost never learn to speak a foreign language very well in school, even though a two- or even three-year high school requirement is standard.

This double whammy is easily generalized.  If studying X for years yields minimal knowledge, and you wouldnt use X even if you knew it, you could defend X as an elective.  But how could anyone defend X as a requirement?

My view is this:

1. Learning at least one language is of high value for Americas elite.  It helps them see different points of view, and prepares a small number for careers in the foreign service or in other international capacities.  It makes intellectuals deeper and improves their scholarship.  This is a sliver of the population, but the global rate of return to having it is very high.  And I suspect a significant portion of this population received its first exposure to a foreign language in high school (or even junior high), which in turn may have helped them do study abroad.

2. If we could target foreign language acquisition to this future elite, I would gladly let the vast majority of the student population off the hook.  One move toward this end would be to use foreign language tiebreakers for those wishing to finish in the top quarter of their high school class.  I would like to see a study of whether this would produce sufficiently accurate targeting.

3. Here is an estimate that knowing a foreign language brings a wage premium of about 2%; I have not read the paper, but I do not wish to overclaim on the causality front.  It still is measuring something about quality.

4. Many European countries teach their citizens English (above all), French, and German with reasonable success and high returns, especially for English.  So it is possible to succeed with this endeavor within a publ...

For context, here is a chart of the black market (i.e. real-world) value of the Venezuela's fiat currency, the bolivar: a 100,000 bolivar note is worth somewhere around 40 cents USD (US dollar), i.e. near zero.

Elongated Peruvian Skulls May Have Been Elite Humans

Over the last year, images and videos of rather dubious three-fingered mummies in Peru sparked a flurry of social speculation about ancient aliens, alien-human hybrids, or some unidentified human subspecies or unknown ancient abomination from right here on Earth. However authentic or inauthentic they might be, the strange appearance of the mummies with long, bulbous heads might have its roots in a kernel truth.

An elongated, stretched-out kernel.

It turns out that hundreds of skulls with elongated skulls have indeed been found in the mountains of Peru and catalogued by anthropologists throughout the years. DNA tests of the skulls have been surprising, but only in that they showed that th...

Off The Cuff: The Bond Market Will Have A Rude Awakening Soon

In this week's Off The Cuff podcast, Chris and Wolf Richter discuss:

  • The Coming Rude Awakening For Bonds
    • Spiking yields are about to crash prices
  • Multi-TrillIon Dollar Deficits
    • The US is spending much more than it admits to
  • Kryptonite For The Housing Market
    • Higher interest rates & unfavorable tax code changes
  • Pension Woes
    • Most pension plans will soon be in a world of pain

Chris and Wolf marvel at the bond market's apparent indifference so far to rising rates. Rising rates, of course, mathematically mean bond prices should lower -- but that hasn't happened much yet. With the 10-year Treasury nearly at 3% now, that resistance can't last for long. Especially if the Fed proceeds with its declared program of quantitative tightening this year.

Testimony Claims Nixon Hid Proof of ET in White House Time Capsule "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

As someone with an interest in history, politics, conspiracy theories and the possible existence of alien life and extraterrestrial contact with humans, this headline and follow-up was guaranteed to catch my eye:

Nixon time capsule will reveal the existence of extraterrestrials. A Huston Plan Informer revealed that President Nixon hid a time capsule in the White House that contains an explosive spreading about ETs / UFOs.

The link in the post pointed to an episode of Dark Journalist, a video series by Daniel Liszt, an independent reporter, filmmaker and the Dark Journalist. (video here) According to the writeup, Liszt interviews Robert Merritt, whose connection to Richard Nixon and the Watergate scandal is told in Watergate Exposed: A Confidential Informant Tells How The Burglars Were Set Up and Reveals Other Government Dirty Tricks, by Robert Merritt As Told To Douglas Caddy, Original Attorney for the Watergate Seven. In previous interviews, Merritt has said that he had learned about plans for the break-in from James Reed, a.k.a. Rita Reed, a drag queen who worked on the switchboard at the Columbia Plaza Apartments, just blocks from the Watergate Hotel, where he overheard the planned break-in being discussed while secretly listening in on a telephone conversation.

I guess the near-unbelievable price tags of any space-borne technology still hold back the superpowers from going CRASH BANG BOOM with all their shiny new space toys for now, at least.

US Wants ISIL Sponsors to Rebuild Iraq "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

US Wants ISIS Sponsors to Rebuild Iraq

By Tony Cartalucci

Like a local mafia that breaks car windows by night and repairs them by day, the United States has enlisted its Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) partners namely Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Kuwait, and the United Arab Emirates to rebuild in Iraq in the wake of the defeated, self-proclaimed Islamic State (ISIS) these same states sponsored.

Reuters in an article titled, Coalition members must help Iraq rebuild, Tillerson says, would report (emphasis added):

The U.S. leads the coalition and hopes that after a three-year fight to defeat the militants it can count in large part on Gulf allies to shoulder the burden of rebuilding Iraq and on a Saudi-Iraqi rapprochement to weaken Irans influence in the country, which is run by a Shiite led government. 

The article also reports (emphasis added):

Donors and investors have gathered in Kuwait this week to discuss efforts to rebuild Iraqs economy and infrastructure as it emerges from a devastating conflict with the hardline militants who seized almost a third of the country.

US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson would be quoted by Reuters as claiming:

If communities in Iraq and Syria cannot return to normal life, we risk the return of conditions that allowed ISIS to take and control vast territory.

Yet even a causal student of history, military affairs, or modern warfare knows that armies tens of thousands strong, with regional, even global recruiting, training, and logistical networks do not spring up out of poverty or economic ruination. The operation capacity demonstrated by ISIS is only possible with significant state sponsorship.

US Enlists Those Who Sponsored ISIS to Rebuild Iraq 

Mention of Kuwait serving as a venue for donors and investors seeking to reconstruct Iraq is particularly ironic for those who remember the UK Telegraphs 2014 article titled, How our allies in Kuwait and Qatar funded Islamic State.

NVidia has partnered with AI developer AnyVision to create facial recognition technology for smart cities around the world. The two companies will work to install automatic facial recognition into CCTV (closed-circuit television) surveillance cameras. (Source)

We will accelerate our land redistribution program not only to redress a grave historical injustice, but also to bring more producers into the agricultural sector and to make more land available for cultivation, Ramaphosa said during his maiden State of the Nation Address in Parliament last Friday.

We will pursue a comprehensive approach that makes effective use of all the mechanisms at our disposal. Guided by the resolutions of the 54th National Conference of the governing party, this approach will include the expropriation of land without compensation, he said.

More than 100 girls were missing on Wednesday, two days after a Boko Haram attack on their school in northeast Nigeria that has raised fears of a repeat of the 2014 Chibok kidnapping that shocked the world.

Islamist militants stormed the Government Girls Science Secondary School in Dapchi, Yobe state, on Monday evening. Locals initially said the girls and their teachers fled.

But fears have been growing about the whereabouts of the students, and one schoolgirl who escaped said it was likely they were taken by Boko Haram fighters.

We have every reason to suspect that they were taken away by the attackers, said Aisha Yusuf Abdullahi, 16, who returned to her home in Yobes commercial hub, Potiskum.

Anxious parents and guardians converged on the school on Wednesday to demand answers, with conflicting figures as to how many girls were missing.

The Yobe state governor Ibrahim Gaidam said over 50 remained unaccounted for while the police commissioner of the state said 111 were still missing.

Despite the establishments ongoing efforts to FUD average joes around the world out of cryptocurrencies and create such negative sentiment that no patriotic-minded citizen should even want to decentralize their wealth away from government (by bank proxy) control, we noted in surprise the frankness of The New York Feds economists last week, when they admitted

If we lived in a dystopian world without trust, bitcoin might dominate existing payment methods. But in this world, where people do tend to trust financial institutions to handle payments and central banks to maintain the value of money it seems unlikely that bitcoin could ever be as convenient as existing payment means.

Which begged the question: what happens when the trust dies?

The answer, of course, is the very existence of cryptos: to create a world in which not one network is reliant on trust and the presence of a master node.

Which brings us to the question of a central-bank-issued cryptocurrency an odd amalgum of distributed ledger and centralized control? Deutsche Bank attempts to answer the question simply Why would we use crypto-euros? (Spoiler Alert: theyre not convinced at all).

The rise of bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies and the decline in cash payments are the background for a new concept: digital cash issued by central banks. An old academic debate about who creates money and how is resurfacing, but what about the users perspective? Why would we use crypto euros?

Central banks are looking into cryptocurrencies and the underlying distributed ledger technology, as they carry responsibility for issuing physical cash, overseeing and/or providing payment clearing and settlement systems, conducting monetary policy and safeguarding financial stability.

In the areas of payments and savings, digital cash would compete against bank deposits, physical cash and private cryptocurrencies to win over consumers.

Unless its use was strongly pushed by regulation, digital cash would need to convince users by offering better and more c...

Mass protests against Merkel and immigration are spreading through Germany

By Voice of Europe

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

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

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

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

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

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

By Lucia I. Suarez Sang

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Lets think a few years into the future.

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

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

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

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

By John Bowden

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

By Ryan Saavedra

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

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

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

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

Key takeaways from James OKeefes report:

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

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

Alt-right leaders can no longer spread disinformation on Medium

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

By Paris Martineau

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

Screenshot of Mike Cernovichs Medium page.

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

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

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

Show us your target "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

For simplicity, lets s...

College average is over "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Stronger Together? "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

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

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

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

How The 1984 Orwellian State Has Been Growing For A Long Time "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

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

By Arjun Walia

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

Russian President Vladimir Putin has also called out the desire by the elite for a New World Order, which would see the powers that be use imaginary and mythical threats to control us. If youd like to learn more about the New World Order, you can read an article I wrote about it in 2015 that goes into more detail...

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

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

86 Percent of Teens Are Loaded With Gender-Bending Chemicals

By Dr. Mercola

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

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

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

BPA Found in Nearly 90 Percent of Teens

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

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

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

Quinn Slobodians *Globalists* "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

By Dylan Charles

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Eastern Ghouta cannot wait, she said.

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

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

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


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

What Ive been reading "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

1. Jrn Leonhard, Pandoras Box: A History of the First World War.  This is probably the meatiest and most comprehensive WWI book yet published.  It covers the origins of the war, preparation for fighting, public reactions, war aims, the course of battle, war economies, internal politics, the battlefields, how it ended, and more, all at 1,060 Belknap Press pages.  Translated from the German, it doesnt exactly spring to life in your lap, but it is consistently intelligent and thoughtful.  Amazingly the author is only fifty years old.

William Deringer, Calculated Values: Finance, Politics, and the Quantitative Age, covers the rise of numerical reasoning in 17th century Britain.

Domenico Starnones self-contained short novel Trick is now out, translation and introduction by Jhumpa Lahiri.

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

Must Watch Presentation by David Icke

Commentary by enerchi, AscensionWithEarth.Com

February 21, 2018

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Speaking to Bloomberg on condition of anonymity, NATO officials said the US will become home to a command center focused on maritime security in the Atlantic.

Let the robots take our jobs and pay for a universal basic income "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

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

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

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

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

Switzerland embraces bitcoin & cryptocurrencies amid global crackdown "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

https://www.rt.com/business/419158-switzerland-embraces-bitcoin-cryptocurrencies-ico/

While financial regulators across the world are cracking down on bitcoin, Swiss Financial Market Supervisory Authority (FINMA) has decided to encourage digital currencies by issuing guidelines on initial coin offerings (ICOs).

According to the regulator, Switzerland has recently seen a sharp growth in the number of upcoming ICOs planned to be launched in the country, as well as numerous enquiries about cryptocurrency regulation. In an attempt to encourage the ICO market and blockchain technology, FINMA has clarified how standards around anti-money laundering and securities regulations could be applied to virtual currencies.

The application of blockchain technology has innovative potential within and far beyond the financial markets. However, blockchain-based projects conducted analogously to reg...

Luigi Di Maio sits straight as a board and glances down at his notes as he aims to convince some 400 business leaders that he should become Italys youngest ever prime minister.

The leader of the anti-establishment Five Star Movement is in Milan to convince the local elite that he can fix Italys troubled economy. And, just maybe, to win an election.

At 31, Di Maio is probably the youngest person in the room, which is a short walk from the gothic cathedral, and hes out of his natural environment. Five Stars eight-year surge to prominence has been based o...
