John Lanchester: The Case of Agatha Christie "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

Her great talent for fictional murder is to do with her understanding of, and complete belief in, human malignity. She knew that people could hate each other, and act on their hate. Her plots are complicated, designedly so, and the backstories and red herrings involved are often ornate, but in the end, the reason one person murders another in her work comes down to avarice and/or hate. She believed in evil, not necessarily in a theological sense thats a topic she doesnt explore but as a plain fact about human beings and their actions. She isnt much interested in the ethics or metaphysics of why people do the bad things they do. But she is unflinchingly willing to look directly at the truth that they do them.

Owen Bennett-Jones: Trouble at the BBC "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

I have never believed the claim that the BBC is independent of government influence since conducting an interview with the then foreign secretary Jack Straw in 2004. Our interaction came at a moment when there was a slight difference in the line being taken by the Foreign Office and Number Ten about the various inquiries into Iraq exactly the sort of thing BBC journalists were paid to niggle away at. When I kept going on about it, Straw eventually lost his temper and swore on tape. Scoop! The difficulty was that the Foreign Office funded the World Service. As I left King Charles Street, I called the BBC to say I had a story. By the time I got back to the office, a manager had already called FCO officials to apologise.

T.J. Clark: Bellini and Mantegna "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

I believe that both Mantegna and Bellini were alert to every difficult turn and rebalancing in Lukes verses, and thought hard as they painted about how to convert such turns into touches, faces, ways of looking and holding, intervals between people, drapery (a word whose matter-of-factness conceals, in the greatest artists, metaphor after metaphor of human strangeness), proximity, expression. Ruskin, in his pages on Bellini, goes on to assert that the third attribute of the best art the first two are consistency of workmanship and perfect serenity is that it compels you to think of the spirit of the creature, and therefore of its face, more than of its body. The more than here strikes me as wrong: as much is conveyed by Mary and Simeons hands and arms, or the set of necks on shoulders, as by their mouths and eyes. But the faces are triumphs Ruskin is right. In them, but also in the whole play of bodily acceptance and withholding, everything Lukes words suggest is made manifest.

Joanna Biggs: Sylvia Plath at 86 "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

Plath grows up in Cold War America, deceived by a God who let her father die, wanting more than anything to be a writer and to marry a man who would make her feel like she had a vodka sword in her stomach, always. And she gets it when she arrives in Cambridge in 1956, meets her black marauder and marries him in mothers gift of a pink knit dress three and a half months later. But the world, even when it gives her what she wants, also doesnt. Literary success is baseless, fleeting; the marriage dissolves in betrayal, arguments, abandonment. The hard work has come to ash. Awake at 4 a.m. when the sleeping pills wear off, she finds a voice and writes the poems of her life, ones that will make her a myth like Lazarus, like Lorelei. But now she knows that her conception of her life, psychological and otherwise, is no longer tenable, and never was. Now what? I love you for listening, Plath, abandoned and alone, tells her analyst Ruth Beuscher in a letter late in 1962. The rest of us are listening at last.

Die Russen haben ja schon immer einen sehr eigenen Humor gehabt. Aktuell: Yandex Maps verpixelt Militrbasen anderer Lnder und tut es so offensichtlich, dass sie damit die Existenz mehrere geheimer Basen besttigt haben.

Yandexs highly specific blurring reveals the location of several sensitive facilities, Turkish military bases, Israeli nuclear facilities, and Israeli Patriot missile batteries. Facilities in Turkey really stand out, as the entire country is available in high resolution. Incirlik Air Base, used by the United States and home to B61 tactical nuclear weapons, is pinpointed by a big blurry mess as shown above. A savvy person could then use unblurred images of Incirlik to define the exact physical parameters of the base.

Nun, h, brauchen wir ja auch nicht.

Die Bundesregierung will trotz des Lieferstopps fr Rstungsgter nach Saudi-Arabien andere europische Nationen nicht am Export von Waffensystemen hindern, an deren Entwicklung Deutschland beteiligt ist. So plant Berlin nach SPIEGEL-Informationen kein Veto einzulegen, wenn Grobritannien in den nchsten Jahren den gemeinsam entwickelten Kampfjet Eurofighter nach Saudi-Arabien verkauft.
Wir verdienen ja auch ber Bande, und dann ist auch noch jemand anderes der Buhmann. Win-Win!

Why we need to get this Tory rabble out of power before holding another EU referendum "IndyWatch Feed Europe"


There's no doubt that British politics has become incredibly polarised, with the divisions over Brexit being the prime example. However it's always important to remember that the most vocal on either side of the polar divide actually represent relatively tiny factions of the British public as a whole.

Brextremists


The Brextremists relentlessly pushing for a "no deal" socio-economic meltdown (so they can cash in by speculating against Britai when the crash they engineered happens) are obviously a bunch of raving headbangers, many of whom were deeply involved in the staggeringly dishonest and unlawfully funded Leave campaign in 2016.

I don't think I really need to go into much more detail about how much everyone should detest the hard-right Brextremists.

Remain extremists


On the other polar opposite of Brexit the extremism is no less severe. Any hint of criticism of the EU (no matter how deserving or justifiable) and certain pro-EU factions will savage you online. And woe betide anyone who supports Jeremy Corbyn because the hatred the Remain extremists have for him is seemingly the only thing that outweighs their opposition to Brexit.

Just take the Tory Remain icon Anna Soubry as an example. This is a woman who openly admits that she'd rather enforce a ruinous Brexit under Tory rule than have "no Brexit" under Labour rule, yet the #FBPE Remainer echo chamber still absolutely adores her and hangs on her every word.

The absolute brass neck on her "IndyWatch Feed Europe"


There's not much to admire about Theresa May, but aside from the cowardice, the dishonesty, the autocratic tendencies, the incompetence, the callous disregard for the suffering of people she considers to be below her in the social pecking order, and the selfish instinct to keep defying the national interest by shamelessly clinging onto power for as long as she possibly can, she does have an absolutely extraordinary brass neck.

When Jeremy Corbyn confronted her at Prime Ministers' Questions about her unbelievably cowardly decision to postpone the parliamentary Brexit vote purely because she knew she was going to lose it, her retort was to spew rhetoric about how Labour in government would "cause chaos".

Momentum is growing for the reinvestigation of the 1996 murder of Katrina Taylor in Brighton. "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

Following on from the successful conviction of paedophile monster Russell Bishop at the Old Bailey in London on the 10th December 2018; interest is growing for the reinvestigation of the unsolved murder of Katrina Taylor in 1996.

To understand what happened to Katrina Taylor in the fateful night of 4th July 1996, I would recommend you take the time to read the following investigation which explains it all.

         Katrina Taylor Unsolved Murder Covered-up Evidence

With police forces across the nation always ready to reinvestigate cold cases on the basis of new evidence; as we have seen with a successful outcome in the Babes in the Woods case, and an unsuccessful result in the Suzy Lamplugh case;...

Katrina Taylor 1996 Murder Cover-up "IndyWatch Feed Europe"


Katrina Taylor

Exclusively presented by "Guerrilla Democracy News", new evidence in the Katrina Taylor unsolved murder in 1996, has been uncovered which gives Sussex police reason to reopen her case, on the grounds that original evidence was not presented in court.

Katrina Taylor's 1996 unsolved murder remains one of the nation's most notorious unsolved murders, and has a connection to Brighton's equally notorious murders of Nicola Fellows and Karen Hadaway in 1986.

Russell Bishop has been found guilty of murdering both Nicola Fellows and Karen Hadaway in December 2018 at a trial in the Old Bailey, drawing to a close one of the nation's most unsettling mis-carriages of justice.

With police forces across the country always prepared to reinvestigate cold cases, dependent on new evidence; "Guerrilla Democracy News" is taking a fresh look at the 1996 unsolved murder of Katrina Taylor in Brighton, UK, uncovering a relationship between the 1986 Babes in the Woods murder of Nicola Fellows and Karen Hadaway, and the 1996 murder of Katrina Taylor.

While one has been resolved, Katrina Taylor's murder remain the nation's most notorious and controversial unsolved murder cases. Made the more shocking with the back stories of both cases, revealing insights into the more shadowy and criminal side of Brighton's life.

What is the connection?

Southwark Satanic Farce! by Rev Dr Anthony G. Pike "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

Sabine McNeill -               Ricky Dearman -             Belinda McKenzie

Sorry, folks, but St Anthony is now totally FED UP with the total Satanic FARCE at Southwark Crown Court where known baby-eating Satanists have a free rein to come and go, including Satanic High Priest, Ricky Dearman, 48, in Hampstead who initiated the whole Hoaxtead saga. You see, folks, anyone who speaks the TRUTH is prosecuted, jailed and murdered, while the baby-eating Satanists are allowed to publish the biggest pack of lies in the history of the world and get away with it!! So, one needs to ask the question, who runs Britain and who runs the world? Yep, you guessed it, SATAN!! In this respect, the latest person to suffer at the hands of Southwark Satanic Court is none other than Belinda McKenzie, 72, in Highgate who mentioned about Sabine McNeill's case in a Facebook post which immediately resulted in her being arrested and jailed for daring to mention about her friend, Sabine McNeill, 74, but was then released on condition that she never sets foot in Southwark Crown Court ever again forever. Meanwhile, the baby-eating Satanists are allowed to come and go as they please, physically attack people and threaten to kill them and publish whatever lies they want about Sabine's trial without a peep from either police or the court. Now, doesn't that strike you as STRANGE that the UK Govt would go to any length to protect Satanists and harass, imprison and put to death those who expose Satanism and Satanic Ritual Child Abuse which is all being committed at the highest levels of the UK Govt and in the church and society as a whole? I mean, this whole situation beggars belief, but astoundingly its all TRUE!! So, folks, what is needed now is a massive Cromwellian REVOLUTION to overthrow the Satanic Govt and install a benevolent God-fearing THEOCRATIC Govt which of course is what St Anthony did i...

Vladimir Putin Outmaneuvers the U.S. Yet Again "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

By Daniel Lazare and cross-posted from truthdig 

Dont look now, but Vladimir Putin has racked up another win in his latest skirmish with the West.

The victory took place Nov. 25 in the Kerch Strait, the narrow strip of water separating the disputed Crimean Peninsula from the Russian mainland to the east. It occurred when the Russian coast guard fired on and seized three Ukrainian naval vessels. As always, the details are in dispute, with the Ukrainians claiming that their boats informed the Russians about their plans to navigate the strait but received no reply and Russia saying the opposite.

But theres no doubt as to the result. By briefly closing the strait, Russia has demonstrated that it can restrict access at will to roughly half the Ukrainian coastline that lies within the Sea of Azov, including the economically vital ports of Mariupol and Berdyansk.  Although Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko immediately called for Western intervention, it also demonstrated that there is little NATO can do in response.

While expressing full support for Ukraine, the alliance said nothing about Poroshenkos request that NATO ships force their way through the Kerch Strait in defiance of the blockade. The same goes for Ukraines call to Turkey to close off Russian naval access to the Dardanelles, the equally narrow body of water connecting the Black Sea with the Mediterranean.  Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogans only response was an offer to mediate.

So while Poroshenko declared that the only language that Putin understands is the solidarity of the Western world, it appears that the West is solidly behind a cautious policy of non-interference.

Its an astonishing reversal from the heady days of early 2014 when it was Russia...

Facebook hat ja krzlich den Algorithmus umgestellt, so dass mehr lokale Meldungen Aufmerksamkeit kriegen.

Dann kam die Gelbjacken-Bewegung in Frankreich, und es sieht aus, als wenn das von Facebooks Algorithmus erst mglich gemacht wurde.

Heute sehe ich in der Sddeutschen einen Kommentar in die Richtung, da knne man mal sehen, wie gefhrlich Experimente von Tech-Firmen fr die Demokratie seien. Das finde ich ziemlich schockierend. Seht das mal aus der anderen Richtung! Dieses revolutionre Potential war die ganze Zeit da, aber Facebooks Einlull-Entertainment-Werbeberiesel-Algorithmus hat dafr gesorgt, dass die sich gegenseitig nicht wahrgenommen haben. Wer wei, mit wieviel anderen Bewegungen das auch so luft?

Macht das eine Bewegung illegitim, wenn sie "nur dank Facebook" stattfindet? In gypten haben wir das damals anders gesehen!

Ich finde das ja die viel bedrohlichere Vorstellung, dass wir auf einem Pulverfass sitzen, und das explodiert blo nicht, weil die Leute alle ihre Zeit auf Twitter mit dem Blocken von Andersdenkenden ihre Zeit verplempern. In den USA kommt noch dazu, dass die Leute alle von Opiaten sediert werden, aber ist es wirklich so ein Unterschied, wenn die Leute von Internet und TV sediert werden als von Opiaten?

Stellt euch mal vor, ihr knntet einfach soviel Schulden machen, wie ihr wollt. Ihr bliebet immer kreditwrdig. Weil der, der euch Kredite ausstellt, Geld einfach nachdrucken kann. Wobei nachdrucken das falsche Wort ist. Da wird nichts gedruckt. Die gehen einfach in ihrem Excel in die Spalte mit "wieviel Geld haben wir", hngen eine Null an, und das Geld leihen sie dir dann.

Das wre toll, oder? Und der Zinssatz wrde ja auch keine Rolle spielen, denn du kannst ja die Zinsen mit neuen Krediten finanzieren! Aber weil es so gut luft gerade, ist der Zinssatz auch sehr moderat.

Gibt es nicht? Doch, klar! Die Europische Zentralbank kauft in groem Stil Staatsanleihen. Und wisst ihr was? Der EuGH fand das in Ordnung.

Die Richter begrndeten dies auch damit, dass kein EU-Staat bevorzugt werde.
ACH SO! Das ist ein Htchenspiel, bei dem alle verlieren! Da dann ist ja gut!

widdewiddewie sie mir gefllt!!

Was ich ja nicht verstehe: Wieso der Staat dann noch Steuern von mir haben will. Wieso tun wir noch so, als htten wir hier sowas wie einen Markt, eine Wirtschaft, einen Kapitalismus?

Das Schlangenl von Microsoft setzt sich weiter von der Konkurrenz ab, luft jetzt in einer Sandbox.

Auf der einen Seite ist das eine gute Entwicklung. Die Angriffsoberflche von Schlangenl ist enorm. Gut, dass ich nicht mehr der Einzige bin, der das problematisch findet.

Auf der anderen Seite, wenn wir uns da jetzt einig sind, dass Schlangenl eine Gefahr ist, weil es eine groe Angriffsoberflche hat, vielleicht knnen wir dann auch mal ber die Schlussfolgerungen reden, die sich aus dieser Erkenntnis ergeben!

An der Zeit wre es.

Update: brigens, ein Hinweis noch. Selbst-Sandboxing von Anwendungen ist eine Sache, die ich seit ein paar Jahren propagiere. Ich wrde mich echt freuen, wenn Microsoft nicht die einzigen sind, die das umsetzen. Die Open Source-Community operiert gerne unter der Annahme, ihr Code sei irgendwie intrinsisch sicherer als der von Microsoft, weil ist ja Open Source und da kann man ja in den Code reingucken. Das ist ein Trugschluss. Microsoft bezahlt Leute dafr, Code Audits zu machen. Du kannst nicht einfach davon ausgehen, dass bei deinem Projekt auch jemand guckt. Schon gar nicht jemand, der sich auskennt, und Sicherheitslcken auch wirklich erkennen wrde. Open-Source-Projekte knnen nicht einfach annehmen, dass Bugs schon gefunden werden, und mssen auch proaktiv ttig werden.

Er habe Banker angestiftet, Geheimnisse zu verraten.

Gut, immerhin ist das Verhalten konsistent. Beim Dieselskandal gehen sie ja auch nicht gegen die Autobauer vor sondern gegen die Umwelthilfe.

Correctiv hat einen offenen Brief dazu verffentlicht.

Der Paragraph, gegen den die verstoen haben sollen, ist brigens aus dem Gesetz gegen unlauteren Wettbewerb, und ist eigentlich fr Industriespionage gedacht. Anstiftung zum Verrat von Geschfts- und Betriebsgeheimnissen. Kannste dir gar nicht ausdenken, sowas. Ist das berhaupt anwendbar, wenn der Angeklagte aus einer ganz anderen Branche kommt? Dann ist das ja kein Wettbewerb und kann daher auch kein unlauterer Wettbewerb sein.

In England hat ein Abgeordneter "The Mace" mitgenommen und setze an, es rauszutragen. Mace ist eigentlich eine Keule oder ein Streitkolben. Im britischen Unterhaus ist The Mace ein zeremonieller Stab, der die Macht symbolisiert, die der Knig dem Parlament bergibt. Das Parlament hat eine Info-Webseite dazu, und Wikipedia hat natrlich auch was.

Dieser Stab symbolisiert also die Macht des Parlaments, und wird jeden Morgen von einer Prozession ins Parlament getragen. Die Frage ist jetzt, wie symbolisch das genau ist, und ob das Unterhaus ohne das Ding formell handlungsfhig ist. Jedenfalls haben sie ihn gestoppt, bevor er damit rauslaufen konnte.

Das war brigens ein Labour-Abgeordneter.

Kennt sich hier zufllig jemand mit dem Exception Handling auf x86_64 unter Linux aus? Ich wrde gerne die dietlibc schrittweise C++-fhig machen. Erster Schritt: Ein C++-Programm ohne STL, aber mit Exceptions. Da muss man dann statisch noch -lsupc++ -lgcc_eh hinzufgen, um den Runtime-Support dafr von gcc statisch reingelinkt zu kriegen. Aber das Programm stirbt dann immer mit abort().

Ich muss also noch irgendwas im Startup-Code machen oder vielleicht in eine ELF-Sektion schreiben, das ich nicht kenne. Ich bin mir aber auch nicht sicher, in welchem Dokument das dokumentiert ist. Langfristig wrde ich natrlich gerne gucken, ob ich nicht den ganzen Kram ersetzen kann, denn nur den Support fr throw/catch und Stack Unwinding reinzuladen, das kostet im Moment mal eben 100k Binary. Zum Vergleich: Der Rest der dietlibc zusammen ist ~150k. Fr das Unwinding muss man unter Linux leider vergleichsweise viel Aufwand treiben, inklusive Parsen von DWARF-Debuginformationen, soviel habe ich schon herausgefunden. Aber 100k Code erscheint mir so vom Bauchgefhl her nicht angemessen.

Hat euer Apple-Gert ein Problem? Ist es wegen eines Bugs abgestrzt? Aber nicht doch, mein Herr! Solch bse Wrter verwenden wir hier im Apple-Kinderparadies nicht!

Stattdessen seien neutralere Begriffe wie "Zustand" und "Situation" zu verwenden sowie Beschreibungen wie "reagiert nicht". Daraus knnten "absurdistische Dialoge" entstehen, heit es weiter, wenn der Mitarbeiter einem Kunden eigentlich nicht mehr helfen kann dies aber nicht sagen darf.
Ich habe mich ja schon vor vielen Jahren darber amsiert, wie PowerPC die vllig offensichtlich berlege Plattform war, bis hin zu dem Tag, an dem Apple auf Intel umstiegt. Ab dann war PowerPC ja schon immer vllig offensichtlich eine Sackgasse gewesen. Und fr die Idioten, die noch ein PowerPC-basiertes Gert zuhause hatten, hatte man nur mitleidiges Kopfschtteln brig.

Es gibt in Orwells 1984 eine Szene, wo in der Mitte der Hate Week der politische Feind wechselt, quasi in der Mitte einer Rede. Eben noch waren wir schon immer im Krieg mit unserem Erbfeind Eurasien, als das spontan umschlgt und Eurasien ist unser Verbndeter im Kampf gegen unseren Erbfeind Ostasien.

Es gibt in Berlin jetzt eine anti-antideutsche linke Splittergruppe.

In Verlautbarungen beschreibt sie sich selbst als antiimperialistische und revolutionre Jugendorganisation unter proletarischer Fhrung, als die Organisation, die den Maoismus in Deutschland wieder zu den Volksmassen trgt. Sie fhlen sich den gewaltttigen Kmpfen von Maoisten auf den Philippinen und in Indien verbunden und sagen, auch in Deutschland werde ein Volkskrieg bentigt, um das System zu strzen: Wir mssen der militanten Arbeit der Kommunisten weltweit in den Stdten besondere Aufmerksamkeit widmen, die Geschichte der Stadtguerillabewegung in Europa konkret analysieren und von ihrem Erfahrungsschatz lernen. Jedes ihrer Mitglieder sei Teil der Arbeiterklasse, und im Gegensatz zu den meisten anderen linken Gruppen in Deutschland htten viele Migrationshintergrund.
Ihr Symbol ist Hammer und Sichel, aber sie bekmpfen vor allem andere linke Gruppierungen, wie es traditionell bei Linken blich ist. Und mit Mitgrationshintergrund ist hier anscheinend arabisch gemeint, jedenfalls passt das zu ihrem Kiez, und sie bekmpfen Israel-Sympathisanten.
Sie beschimpfen ihre Gegner mit einem Vokabular, das in der linken Szene eigentlich verpnt ist: bezeichnen Frauen als Schlampen oder Trotzkistenfotzen, Mnner als Hurenshne und schwanzlose Missgeburten. Machen Witze ber Menschen mit Behinderungen.

Als Kontext empfehle ich diesen Reuters-Artikel von 2012. Money Quote:

After Irans controversial election in June 2009 sparked the countrys biggest demonstrations in decades, Ericsson and Nokia Siemens Networks, a joint venture between Nokia and Siemens, said they would reduce their business there. NSN had provided TCI with a monitoring center capable of intercepting and recording voice calls on its landline and mobile network. Ericsson had sold equipment to Iranian telecoms that included built-in interception capabilities.
Die Chinesen fanden halt nicht, dass irgendwelche unilateralen Proklamationen der USA, wer ihrer Meinung nach mit wem Handel treiben darf, sie in irgendeiner Form betrfen. Und sie haben natrlich vllig Recht. Man stelle sich das mal andersherum vor. Wrden die Amerikaner sich von irgendwem sagen lassen, mit welchen Lndern sie noch handeln drfen? Natrlich nicht! Daher machen die ja auch seit Jahren fetteste Waffendeals mit Saudi Arabien.

Belgiens Regierung zerbricht am Migrationspakt. Wobei "Regierung" vielleicht ein zu starkes Wort ist. Das war eine Koalition u.a. mit einer Rechtsauen-Partei, die die Unabhngigkeit Flanderns anstrebt. Das war kein stabiles Gebilde.

Und genau die haben jetzt die Koalition aufgekndigt.

Jetzt will der Premier halt ohne die in einer Minderheitsregierung weitermachen. Das wird natrlich noch weniger handlungsfhig. Lacher am Rande: Die alte Koalition hat noch nicht mal den Haushalt beschlossen. Wie eine Minderheitsregierung das jetzt schaffen soll, steht in den Sternen :-)

A funny thing happened in Harrods "IndyWatch Feed Europe"


A few days ago I got side tracked on my way to a Burlesque show in London. I had an hour to spare so I dropped into that shop for the megarich in Knightbridge. It turned out that Harrods was going to be more of an eyeopener than the show.

Wandering amongst the expensive tat, I was wondering to myself who had the cash to splash out 54 for a meal at Harrods street food stall (opposite the caviar stall) ot 500 for a toaster.  Then I spotted a gaudily painted SMEG fridge looking like it had got lost in transit from India. The price tag was an eye watering 36,000.

I was gobsmacked, and in true 21st century fashion I reacted by tweeting a photo with the line 'We live in unequal times'

UK Against Fluoridation "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

In this bulletin we provide an additional 25 statements from the list of doctors, dentists, nurses, scientists, water treatment operators, and others who have signed the New Professionals' statement calling for an end to fluoridation worldwide. Some of these statements have been edited to avoid repetition.
The first statement on this selection comes from one of the professional heroes who have opposed water fluoridation: Dr. Hardy Limeback, former president of the Canadian Association of Dental Research, a former professor at the University of Toronto and a panel member of the landmark 2006 US National Research review of the toxicology of fluoride (NRC, 2006). Hardy put his career on the line to speak truth to power on this issue. Under his statement below we have provided a link to a 30-minute podcast he did recently with Melissa Gallico, the author of The Hidden Cause of Acne: How Toxic Water is Affecting Your Health and What You Can Do About it.  It is an interview to which every student and professor of dentistry should listen. His experience should make them ask questions of those who have this profession mesmerized by this outdated practice.  No profession should behave in the way it has treated those who have dared to speak out on this topic.
Yesterday was very good day in our annual fundraiser. We received $2,230 from 19 donors, bringing our grand total to  $72,914 from 129 supporters. Still a long way to go to $250,000 by midnight Dec 31 but we have made a terrific start. Thank you to everyone for your very generous support for our 2019 campaign.

French Credit Risk Soars As Macron Bailout Blows-Out Deficit "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

Cross-posted from Zero Hedge

Having bitched and moaned at the utter temerity of the Italians to suggest a growth budget that busts Brussels mandated deficit limits, the French are about to make Milans defiance look like childs play.

French Prime Minister Edouard Philippe said the measures announced on Monday by President Emmanuel Macron to appease so-called Yellow Vests protesters will necessarily have an impact on the countrys deficit.

The measures will have consequences in terms of spending and that necessarily implies consequences in terms of deficit and we know it will have an impact on the 2019 deficit.

Philippe said the government will take measures to avoid accelerating public spending, but for now, its not looking good.

Specifically, as the EU pressures Italy to retreat from a deficit of 2.4% of GDP next year, the promises Macron unveiled Monday night, from a 100-euro ($114) a month hike in the minimum wage to abolishing a tax on pensions, are expected to cost around EUR 10 billion (or 0.5ppt of GDP), which, as French Budget Minister Gerald Darmanin indicated, will send the 2019 budget to a deficit at 3.4% of GDP.

And that budget-busting populist bailout for Macron has sent French credit risk soaring to its highest since May 2017.

Perhaps most notably, as opposed to disgust projected from Brussels when Italy pitched their budget, the European Commission said itwill assess the impact of French President Emmanuel Macrons proposed increase in spending in the spring in its regular process of assessing EU governments budgets.

We have a well-established process in place to monitor and assess member states economic situations and fiscal policies. Our position on France is well known and the opinion on the French draft budgetary plan was published recently, commission spokesman Margaritis Schinas says.

The fiscal impact of the final budget that emerges from the parliamentary process will be assessed in spring when we publish our economic forecasts, Schinas tells reporters.

As always, its one rule for the core, and one for the periphery.

Get real: The DUP won't bring down Theresa May because they've got her exactly where they want her "IndyWatch Feed Europe"


Some people are terrible at maths. If you add all the Labour, SNP, Lib-Dem, Plaid Cymru, and Green MPs together they're clearly outnumbered by the Tories plus the DUP, but some people still seem to imagine that Theresa May would lose a parliamentary confidence vote.

Yes Theresa May's cowardice is utterly despicable; Yes her decision to postpone the Brexit vote was an affront to parliamentary democracy and a national humiliation on the world stage to boot; Yes she's brazenly prioritising her own career over the best interests of the nation by selfishly clinging onto power for as long as possible; And yes her decision to shove a subordinate (David Liddington) into the parliamentary pit of fury at her despicable actions to go around Belgium and the Netherlands doing fake busywork further underlines the her absolute shamelessness.

But a vote of no confidence at this point would be a massively self-defeating waste of time and effort from everyone who is opposed to Tory rule, and everyone who is opposed to the Tory Brexit farce.

The reason is obvious.The DUP sectarians she bribed into propping up her government after her spectacularly failed hubris election have her exactly where they want her. Weak, desperate, unpopular, and absolutely dependent on their support.

They're essentially holding the Prime Minister hostage until she caves into their demands, so why on earth would they throw this advantageous position away by backing a vote of no confidence in her and toppling...

EUROPA The Last Battle ~ The Full Documentary (2017)

Trailer for the upcoming WW2 documentary EUROPA The Last Battle by Tobias Bratt. Since the mid-20th century, the world has only ever heard one side of the most horrific war in human history. We are today living in the world of the victors of that war and without an objective, rational and balanced view of our history, we are doomed to repeat the mistakes. After World War Two, the victors of the war not only went on to write our history books , but also going so far as to criminalize the mere questioning of the official storys orthodoxy. The truth is, that our world today can only be understood through a correct understanding of World War II, the forces behind it and the conflicts between Globalism and Nationalism.
For very good reasons, most people dont trust the mainstream media anymore. You have already heard the official history millions of times, In this film you will find the secret history, where you will find the real causes of the events.
The intention with this documentary is to correct over 70 years of misinformation, restore the truth, the honesty and justice in the world. We must face the truth, however unpleasant and inconvenient it may be. We cant do anything about the past; but by correcting the misinformation and distortions of the truth attached to it, we can unite and make sure that these horrors never will be repeated.
The truth fears no investigation.

Citizens across Sweden have begun rising up to protest globalism, in solidarity with hundreds of thousands of French protestors

As the anti-globalist movement continues to sweep across Europe, the people of Sweden took to the streets of Stockholm over the weekend, protesting the UN Migration Pact.

Voiceofeurope.com reports: Plenty of Swedish flags, placards and yellow vests were seen. children participated as well. We are not extremists. We are ordinary Swedes, shouted the protesters.

Its not about political colours, its about the people, one of the speakers, journalist Katerina Janouch stated.

I am here for the 9-year-old girl who was raped and beaten in a junk room. I am here for all the women who no longer dare go out.

I am here for the poor elderly who paid tax their whole lives and now are forced to starve. I am here for the homeless. I am here for those who dont get what the social contract promises.

According to Janouch, all Swedes, regardless of political affiliation, should participate in the demonstrations and protest against the politics in Sweden.

Julian Rose: Exorcising the Demon of Religious Dogma "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

Julian Rose

One must go back further than religion. That is the starting point of the great reassessment we undertake in freeing ourselves from the burden of false knowledge. Freeing ourselves from unquestioned assumptions of truth. We need to get back to the roots of mankind, and in so doing, re-establish a direct and reciprocal relationship with nature and the universe, of which we are a part.

Religion is a man-made and once removed interpretation of the life force and a false one at that. Whereas the life force (nature and the universe) works directly through man. There is no place for a middle man to censor our experiences.

Religion placed an invisible wall between man and nature and between man and God, setting conditions for orderly behaviour according to a doctrine of obedience. So now, as these walls crumble, we should stand proud in saying Nature not religion. Truth not dogma.

But that is merely the first step in our journey of a thousand miles. As the scales fall from our eyes we do not only recognise the truth nature not religion, we also recognise God to have given birth to nature. We recognise nature as an expression of the Creator. So with nature as our base, our next step up is to strive to come ever closer to our Creator. To realise the God within us. These are the stepping stones of our emancipation as human beings.

We must go down to the very foundations of life. For any merely superficial ordering of life, that leaves its deepest needs unsatisfied, is as ineffectual as if no attempt at order had ever been made.
(I Ching, The Well).

In terms of historical time, that event which is called pagan came before religion and is superior to it, in that it encompassed a direct response to nature. So the progression I favour, moves through pagan to the state of higher consciousness we call Godly leaving out religion completely. Let there be no barriers to the free-flow of the energetic life force as it gathers momentum in a universal quest for divine expression.

We humans are a vector for this divine energy. It is we who stand at the mid point between the dawn of life on Earth and the supreme...

Guest Post "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

By special request, Im posting this image to illustrate the comment below (Sisyphus10 December 2018 at 10:00)  Out of Office' Open thread.


I was away for the weekend & accidentally deprived myself of wi-fi, so thanks, Peter for the up-date on the social media response to the Alistair Campbell/Jenni Russell squabble on Newsnight.
What I did not miss, though, was what was going on opposite Worcester Cathedral at about 4.15 on Saturday: having eaten a well-lubricated lunch, my wife & I returned to our hotel for a quick snooze. We had barely zizzed our first zeds when a commotion began outside: a quick peek through the curtains revealed a large yellow bus, bearing the legend:"Bollocks to Brexit," and a group of 15-20 people standing alongside it chanting the slogan. If the BBC reported this, it probably said a crowd of 100,000, so I repeat: THERE WERE 15-20 PEOPLE.
Two questions come to mind: who is funding this? and at whom is it targeted? I just had a look on-line & the organisers claim to be 'crowd-funded.' So, which crowd? Is there an EU slush-fund or is it Soros or Bilderberg types? The BBC is very keen on investigating the funding of referendum campaigners so no doubt we can expect a special edition of Panorama soon!
The target age-group appeared to be about 15 or 16 - have they been tipped off that there is to be a second referendum & a lower age-limit of 16?

Despite the trillions of euros thrown at Europes banks since 2008, in the form of direct government bailouts, government guarantees, asset buying programs, toxic loan purchases and the unending string of LTRO and TLTRO (virtually free loan) programs, the old continents banking system is as rickety as ever.

The Euro Stoxx 600 bank index, which covers major European lenders, slumped 3.9% last week and is down over 25% since the beginning of this year.

Theresa May's cowardly goalpost-shifting is a humiliation for Britain "IndyWatch Feed Europe"


Theresa May's last-minute efforts to postpone the meaningful Brexit vote are an absolute humiliation for Britain.

Just think back to her bombastic Lancaster House speech in early 2017 and how she unveiled her bad faith threat-based negotiating tactic of threatening to explode a ruinous "no deal" economic bomb under Britain and the EU if she didn't get her own way.

Threats; ridiculous red-lines; squandered leverage; continual appeasement of the ERG Brextremists in the Tory ranks; throwing away her parliamentary majority in her monumentally hubristic vanity election; repeatedly defying democratic accountability to the point of becoming the first government ever to be declared in contempt of parliament; running the whole Brexit show as a closed Tory shop with no input from opposition parties, devolved parliaments, UK business leaders, trade unions, academicas and experts, civic society, or anyone but her closed clique of Tory mates ...

Theresa May's appalling blend of authoritarianism and incompetence was always a recipe for disaster, but the Tories lapped it up in delight, and an astounding 13.6 million people flocked to the polls in June 2017 to actively endorse this hard-right, ultranationalist, and above all diplomatically incompetent farce.

Then in order to convince MPs to back the hopeless shambles she eventually cobbled together at the last minute she cynically resorted to threatening the anti-Brexit MPs with a ruinous "no deal" meltdown if they didn't support her (a "no deal" threat which she came up with in the first place!), whilst simultaneously threatening the pro-Brexit MPs with the possibility of "no Brexit" if they didn't support her!

Theresa May is still shamelessly and selfishly clinging onto power "IndyWatch Feed Europe"


It's one historic humiliation after another for Theresa May, but she just keeps clinging onto power.

Last week it was having her government become the first in history to be found in contempt of parliament over their efforts to hide the legal advice they received on her Brexit proposals.

Today it's the postponement of the meaningful vote on her Brexit proposals purely because she wants to avoid the humiliation of losing it.

Make no mistake, the meaningful vote was set be one of the most significant parliamentary votes of the Century given that the outcome defines our entire future relationship with our European neighbours.

She's not just bottled any old parliamentary vote because she's afraid of losing it (which would be a humiliation in its own right), she's bottled the single most important parliamentary vote of her entire tenure as Prime Minister!

The self-serving cowardice of it is absolutely extraordinary. Her government spent the last few weeks talking up the importance of the vote and fear-mongering terrible outcomes if she doesn't get her way (cynically threatening a ruinous "no deal" Brexit to Brexit-sceptics, and a "no Brexit" scenario to the Brexiteers), but when it came to the crunch she just shifted the goalposts to some unspecified date in the future, solely to avoid defeat.

20 questions mainstream media should ask about the Institute for Statecraft scandal (but probably won't) "IndyWatch Feed Europe"


The Tory government has been caught red-handed shovelling over 2 million in public cash at a dodgy propaganda unit called the Institute For Statecraft which disguises itself as a charity for the purposes of avoiding tax.

A cache of leaked documents has revealed that this publicly-funded pseudo-charity has been interfering in the democratic processes and broadcast media outlets of our European neighbours, and furthermore the Twitter account they runwith the extraordinarily misleading name "Integrity Initiative" has repeatedly published highly partisan political attacks on the Labour opposition.

The mainstream media have been extremely quiet on the story, and don't be naive enough to expect to be hearing any BBC coverage of this scandal whatever.

Facebook 2018

WHY DOES FLUORIDATED AUSTRALIA, STILL IGNORE THE FACT THAT FLUORIDE CAN BE THE REASON NEUROTOXIC LEAD IS ADDED TO AUSSIE DRINKING WATER?
Is a Federal inquiry needed? Contact your POLITICIANS.
"Deadly lead is found in public drinking fountains just weeks after warning over poison in household taps - and the worst culprit is next to a children's playground.
- Lead is corrupting water supplies in public drinking fountains in Australia.
- Many of the drinking fountains have been confirmed to contain traces of lead. 
- 4.5 per cent lead content is allowed in Australian plumbing fittings currently.
- In the US it is just 0.25 per cent and a 'guidance statement' has now been issued. 
- The government has told Australians to run taps for 30 seconds to flush out lead." 
Research this, https://www.researchgate.net//282439972_Plumbosolvency_exa
Plumbosolvency, the dissolution of metallic Lead, which results in the contamination of drinking water and consequent damage to human health, is recognized as a major problem wherever Lead pipes, solder or brass fittings are present in the supply route. Plumbosolvency is exacerbated by Fluoridation of drinking water. The use of Phosphate in an attempt to reduce the dissolution rate leads to increased costs, waste of a scarce natural resource and environmental degradation. Immediate cessation of neurotoxic Fluoridation to reduce plumbosolvency makes more economic sense. Provision of communal water supplies from point of collection reverse osmosis filters can bring an immediate end to Lead exposure while sources of Lead contamination are gradually removed from the supply network, creating thousands of person years employment in a depressed economy.

The Internet Ethics of SBC? "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

A Letter to the Editor from NYE Crime Correspondent TIM HICKS regarding certain ambiguities in Scarborough Borough Councils policy on Councillors social media activities and email traffic.

~~~~~

Dear Sir,

I have read the various articles concerning Councillor Randerson, Councillor Plant and my e mail to Councillor Bastiman (which contained a confidential e mail from the Borough solicitor Ms Lisa Dixon) with some concern.

I think that referring to Councillor Randerson as Randert**t is obscene and unacceptable.  It may also constitute a criminal offence of harassment.

In my dealings with Councillor Randerson I have found him to be tolerant and scrupulously courteous. He does not deserve this type of personalised abuse, because he gives up his time for the public good by acting as a Councillor and has expressed differing views to some other Councillors.

In the past I have defended Councillor Plant. However, on this occasion I cannot. In my view, he should not have re/tweeted comments from Mr John Blagden, given the nature of his deeply offensive behaviour towards a fellow Councillor.  By doing this, he has associated himself with Mr Blagdens views and conduct. I believe that by endorsing Mr Blagden he has brought the office of Mayor into disrepute.  Particularly as it has been suggested that Mr Blagden may be acting covertly under an alias, his real identity unknown, as part of a coordinated smear campaign.

I have engaged in correspondence about the RIPA issue because I am concerned that SBC may be abusing its surveillance powers for the political ends of the ruling Conservative Party.  For those of you that believe this is far-fetched, please see this:

Twelve Israelis Suspected of Running Child Sex Trafficking Network in Colombia "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

Law enforcement authorities in Colombia suspect 12 Israelis of running a sex-trafficking network alongside two Colombians. The office of Colombias attorney general said eight of the suspects have been arrested, including six Israelis.

The alleged sex trafficking ring provided Israeli travelers with tourism packages that included prostitutes, some of whom were minors, who received between 200,000 pesos ($63) to 400,000 pesos ($126) in return for sexual services.

Among the charges against the members of the trafficking ring are murder, conspiracy, human trafficking, trafficking in minors, drug manufacturing, providing prostitution services and money laundering. The leader of the ring in an Israeli named Mor Zohar, media in Colombia reported, while one of those arrested is a Colombian police officer.

The attorney generals office said 150 billion pesos ($47.3 million) of property has been seized during the investigation, including hotels, hostels and other tourism related businesses.

The investigation began after the murder of Israeli Shai Azran in Medellin in June 2016. The police in Colombia suspect the murderer was Assi Ben-Mosh, a 44-yaer-old Israeli who has operated in Colombia since 2009. Ben-Mosh was arrested in 2003 in the Netherlands on suspicions of leading an international drug trafficking network.

Colombian authorities tracked Ben-Moshs activities in the South American nation and found that he owned a hotel in Santa Marta, Hotel Benjamin, and offered tourism packages and organized parties at which drugs and sex services were allegedly sold in cooperation with Zohar.

The network is suspected of operating in a number of cities in Colombia, including the capital Bogota, Medellin, Cartagena and Santa Marta.

UN votes in favor of resolution to end Israeli occupation of Palestine "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

The UN General Assembly voted in favor of a resolution calling to end the Israeli occupation of Palestinian territories, current President of the UN General Assembly Maria Espinosa said in a statement.

The Comprehensive, Just and Lasting Peace in the Middle East resolution sponsored by Ireland urges to end the occupation of Palestinian territories by the state of Israel and reaffirms its support for the two-state solution.

The United States and Israel voted against the resolution in addition to Australia, Liberia, Marshall Islands, and Nauru.

Since 1967, Israel has been occupying Palestinian territories and refusing to recognize Palestine as an independent political and diplomatic state.

Through a recorded vote of 156 in favor to 6 against (Australia, Israel, Liberia, Marshall Islands, Nauru, United States), with 12 abstentions, the Assembly adopted a draft resolution titled Comprehensive, just and lasting peace in the Middle East (document A/73/L.49).

Such a peace, unfortunately, is not currently in sight, said Irelands representative while introducing the text. Stressing the importance of reversing the current negative developments on the ground, she added that a settlement of the conflict must meet Palestinian aspirations for statehood and sovereignty, as well as resolve all final status issues.

The General Assembly decided to reiterate its call for the achievement of just and lasting peace in the Middle East while also failing to adopt a text condemning Hamas resistance group in Gaza.

Speaking on behalf of the Arab Group, the representative of Kuwait called on all States to reject the US-drafted text condemning the Palestinian resistance as it distracts from the deep seated causes of the conflict.

Parece ser que las distintas fuerzas quieren evitar ms confusiones en relacin al tema de las hipotecas, ya que han pactado que la futura Ley Hipotecaria establecer que los gastos los van a pagar las entidades financieras, con la salvedad tan solo de los gastos de tasacin, los cuales corren por cuenta del cliente.

Con respecto a la tramitacin de la ley, el Consejo de Ministros celebrado el pasado 8 de noviembre tomara la decisin de solicitar la tramitacin urgente de la normativa, que podra reducir los plazos de dos meses a veinte das.

El gerente de la Asociacin Hipotecaria Espaola (AHE) trata de aportar algo de claridad a este tema: La firma de un prstamo hipotecario suele ir acompaada de un contrato de compraventa de un inmueble. Este experto contina explicando que en el contrato de compraventa intervienen el cliente (comprador) y el vendedor, no el banco, razn por la cual, de momento, el cliente tiene que pagar la gestora, la inscripcin en el Registro, los impuestos y el notario. Adems de esto, si la operacin se hace a travs de una hipoteca conlleva un prstamo hipotecario en el que intervendrn el cliente y el banco, respecto a lo cual aade que: A partir de ahora, el impuesto de actos jurdicos documentados lo abonar el banco y el cliente la tasacin.

Cul es el panorama en estos momentos?

Es cada vez ms habitual que los bancos se repartan los gastos a medias, e incluso alguno de ellos se encarga de algunas de estas partidas en su totalidad, y probablemente siga siendo as hasta la entrada en vigor de la Ley Hipotec...

Planifica tus vacaciones en Europa "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

Europa es uno de los 5 continentes y se extiende desde Asia hasta el Atlntico y desde frica hasta el rtico, adems de los 10 pases ms visitados en el mundo, 7 son pertenecientes a este continente. Por ello, Europa es uno de los mejores destinos para visitar durante las vacaciones.

Por qu visitar Europa?

Este continente representa el destino turstico mundial por excelencia, pues tiene infinidad de atractivos para visitar y disfrutar, ya sea que se viaje solo o en familia. En Europa se unen muchas culturas en el mismo espacio, adems, est repleto de historia, bellezas naturales, obras arquitectnicas, etc.

Existen ciertas atracciones que son muy conocidas y mucha gente suele visitar estos lugares solo para poder tomarse una foto con la Torre Eiffel o el Partenn, entre otros.

La cocina en este continente tambin es digna de admiracin y ms de un turista lo visita solo para poder probar el sabor de un autntica paella espaola, las salchichas alemanas o el autntico queso francs.

Tambin, este continente ofrece un muy buen sistema de transporte para los turistas, como es el sistema de ferrocarril, que llega a todas partes y posee muy buenas tarifas y por supuesto, la oportunidad de viajar en ferry, lo que permite al turista tener una experiencia grata mientras se desplaza a lo largo de Europa.

Que lugares debes visitar?

Europa, como ya se ha mencionado, es un continente rico en atracciones tursticas, sin embargo, la eleccin de los lugares que debes visitar depender de la regin en la cual te hospedes, pues Europa es un continente muy amplio y es imposible que en una sola visita se disfrute de todas sus actividades tursticas.

Llegar al cliente a travs de la personalizacin "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

Una de las mejores formas de llegar al cliente es travs de la personalizacin y de ofrecer un producto que parece destinado solamente para l. Cada vez son ms las empresas que basan su estrategia en ofrecer servicios y servicios de forma que parezca que ste se ha diseado especficamente para el cliente.

Exclusividad, familiar de la personalizacin

Ms que una personalizacin, algunos sectores estn encaminados a mostrar un servicio/producto ms encaminado a ser nico, un atributo que sin ser personalizado es pariente cercano de ste, pues en ambos casos se est hablando de un bien que es nico en su especie. Cada uno a su manera (uno bajo la personalizacin y otra bajo la exclusividad) ofrecen al cliente esa sensacin de ser especial y tener la fortuna de tener un artculo que ninguna otra persona tiene.

Por ejemplo, un libro, por su edicin limitada o por ser demasiado antiguo puede ser demasiado difcil de encontrar. No obstante, hay librerias online como itsbook.es especializadas en literatura menos popular y poniendo en la mano del comprador ejemplares imposibles de conseguir en otras empresas.

Traducciones exactas para sectores concretos

Otro servicio donde la personalizacin se hace importante es en el sector de las traducciones. Existen contextos donde la traduccin debe ser impoluta y exacta, (traducciones juradas, contratos de empresa, normativas) y otros mbitos donde se requiere un lenguaje ms especializado (nuevas tecnologas, sociedad, costumbres)   

Una buena agencia de traduccin, como www.tracendio.com, debe saber ofrecer al cliente ese servicio tan exacto y personalizado que necesita. Para empezar, lo ideal es que cuente con personal nativo que obviamente domine todas las jergas de su idioma materno as como el vocabulario de la lengua del cliente. Asimismo, no hay que olvidar que la traduccin es algo ms que traducir del espaol al ingls y que cada vez es mayor la penetracin de idiomas de economas emergentes como el portugus, el chino o el rabe.   

De hecho es otra forma de ofrecer esa exclusividad de la que antes se hablaba. Ofrecer serv...

Internet y su infinita gama de servicios "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

Desde la llegada de Internet los seres humanos han visto cmo progresivamente ha variado la forma en que se relacionan con los dems. Antes, solo bastaba con enviar una carta para saber de los amigos. Tiempo despus fue posible pautar una cita con la pareja a travs de los telfonos. Ahora, todo o casi todo se hace en lnea.

Queda ms que claro: las mutaciones de las dinmicas sociales han sido producto de Internet. Y no parece agotar sus recursos. De ah que simplemente haya que dejarse deslumbrar por la llegada de la siguiente innovacin.

Los servicios clsicos de Internet: las cuentas de correo

Aunque es uno de los sistemas ms antiguos para comunicarse dentro de internet, el correo electrnico sigue siendo uno de los principales medios de comunicacin en este soporte. Puede parecer simple decir que es una direccin de este tipo, pero por ser uno de los servicios ms empleados perece la pena hablar detalladamente de ello.

Un correo electrnico es una serie de signos compuestos por el nombre de cada usuario junto con el signo arroba, seguido del nombre de las diferentes compaas que prestan el servicio y que culmina con la extensin del dominio que lo presta.

En busca de personal con amplio sentido de superacin

No importa qu ha sucedido en el pasado. El aqu y el ahora es el objetivo. En este sentido, la primera seal es que no hay que mirar atrs, por lo que si se poseen cualidades como responsabilidad, trabajo en equipo, cooperacin, sencillez, respeto por el otro y un amplio sentido de superacin y aprendizaje, no se debe pensar ms y proceder a enviar un curriculum.

12 things you should know about the "Brexit Betrayal" march "IndyWatch Feed Europe"


On Sunday December 9th 2018 some 3,000 people attended an extreme-right "Brexit Betrayal" protest in London led by the street thug and convicted fraudster Stephen Yaxley-Lennon (Tommy Robinson) and the absolute dregs who haven't yet abandoned UKIP (even former leaders Nigel Farage and Paul Nuttall have recently quit the party in disgust at what it's become).

Here are 12 things you should know about the protest.

Stephen Yaxley-Lennon

Most of the other speakers barely managed to hold the attention of the crowd because the majority of them were just waiting for their idol "Tommy Robinson" to stick it to the Muslims and immigrants.

Yaxley-Lennon followers don't give a damn that he's using a fake name, that he's a convicted fraudster, that he's a hate-preacher who has inspired deadly terrorist attacks against innocent people, and they don't care that he's living the high life on the back of all of their donations and hundreds of thousands in payments from shady hard-right propaganda outfits in the US who are seeking to destabilise Britain and other developed nations by funding extreme-right agitators.

Yaxley-Lennon has amassed a fortune in donations and used it to build a significant property portfolio, including a large country house in rural Bedfordshire.

Do the people who throw cash at him realise that he's just siphoning it off to enrich himself?

Yellow fever: long live the revolutionary mob! "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

D8paris2Paris, Saturday December 8

What would an anti-capitalist revolution actually look like, if it happened?

That is the question that must be going through many an anarchists mind as current events unfold in France.

The Gilets Jaunes or Yellow Vest movement has staged four successive Saturdays of startling and energetic mass mobilisations across France against the neoliberal Macron regime, turning a protest against the cost of living into an attempted insurrection.

On Saturday December 8 there were more than a thousand arrests as crowds occupied central Paris and caused general havoc from Toulouse to Bordeaux, Nantes to Marseilles. The protests even spread to Brussels in Belgium.

Theresa May's Putinesque propaganda war "IndyWatch Feed Europe"


Interfering in other countries' democracies, channelling public funds to shady operations that attack and smear opposition politicians and undermine the freedom of the press, maintaining secretive networks of loyalist journalists and civil servants at home and abroad, spreading social media disinformation, electoral cheating to maintain power, and all as the head of a political party bankrolled by dodgy Russian oligarchs.

You could be forgiven for thinking that this is a description of Vladimir Putin and his regime, but in fact it's Theresa May and the Tories.

Anyone who has paid the remotest attention to how the Tory cabal funds itself will know that they've racked up more than 3 million in donations from dodgy Russian oligarchs and Putin cronies since 2010, including the sale of direct personal access to government ministers just weeks before the Tory government quashed Labour moves to clamp down on the tsunami of dodgy Russian cash flooding into the City of London.

Anyone who was paying attention during the 2017 general election will know that the Tory party is just as willing to use despicable social media propaganda to achieve their objectives as Vladimir Putin and the armies of Ru...

Use it or lose it. Or: Rod Liddle on BBC bias "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

Having been a subscriber to The Times for longer than I care to admit, I'm suddenly denied online computer access (maybe because of a recent decline in activity) so I had to copy this piece from another device (inexplicably with normal access) and email it to myself in order to post this.) All for your edification.

(Must get round to reading Robin Aitken sometime.)




To show that I'm still here, I give you a major chunk of Rod Liddle in today's Sunday Times. I've left out the introductory passage because it's about Dr Who. Here's the meaty bit:

"The liberal bias within the BBC increases, almost exponentially, with each week that passes. It managed to behave itself, just about, during the Brexit referendum, but now the gloves are off as the editorial director of BBC News (whats that?) Kamal Ahmed revealed in a leaked email: ram it home to those thick-as-mince leaver losers just how hellish their lives are going to be if we get out (I have paraphrased his email to staff). Every piece of good economic news prefaced with In spite of Brexit . . . and given caveats, every bad piece of news leading the bulletins. 
Seventy MPs wrote to the BBC to complain about its bias on this issue; the Beeb told them to get stuffed. But then, the bias is just as bad on every other issue within the news, especially immigration, which is something to be incontestably welcomed and people who are a bit wary about it are knuckle-browed racists who require re-education. Not to mention foreign affairs, which consists of a perpetual sneer at Donald Trump and a good kicking for Israel whenever it dares to respond to a violent attack from Hamas (which will have gone unmentioned). 
This kind of relentless, institutionalised bias in the news is dismally, but brilliantly, adumbrated in a new book by a chap called Robin Aitken, a BBC staffer for more...

Every Bubble Is In Search Of A Pin "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

The Everything Bubble has popped.

By Chris Martensen of Peak Prosperty

Now that the worlds central banking cartel is taking a long-overdue pause from printing money and handing it to the wealthy elite, the collection of asset price bubbles nested within the Everything Bubble are starting to burst.

The cartel (especially the ECB and the Fed) is hoping it can gently deflate these bubbles it created, but thats a fantasy. Bubbles always burst badly; its their nature to do so. Economic suffering and misery always accompany their termination.

Its said that every bubble is in search of a pin. History certainly shows they always manage to find one.

History also shows that after the puncturing, pundits obsess over what precise pin triggered it, as if that matters.  It doesnt, because cause of a bubbles bursting can be anything.  It can be a wayward comment by a finance minister, otherwise innocuous at any other time, that spooks a critical European bond market at exactly the right (wrong?) moment, triggering a runaway cascade.

Or it might be the routine bankruptcy of a small company that unexpectedly exposes an under-hedged counterparty, thereby setting off a chain reaction across the corporate bond market before the contagion quickly spreads into other key elements of the financial system.

Or perhaps it will be the US Justice Department arresting a Chinese technology executive on murky, over-reaching charges to bully an ally into accepting that unilateral US sanctions are to be abided by everyone, regardless of sovereignty.

How was it that the famous Tulip Bulb bubble came to a crashing end back in the 1600s?  No one knows the exact moment or trigger. But we can easily imagine that in some Dutch pub on the fateful night on the Feb 3rd1637, a bidder on the most-coveted of all bulbs, the Semper Augustus, had an upset stomach and briefly grimaced when hit by a ripping gas pain:

Interpreting this face as distaste for the opening bid price, the assembled crowd may have suddenly realized the absurdity of paying so much (enough to clothe and feed a family for more than half a lifetime) for an ungrown flower. The bids were pulled, and the rest is history.

The point is: it doesnt really matter what...

Neocons Sabotage Trumps Trade Talks Huawei CFO Taken Hostage To Blackmail China "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

Trumps foreign policy is run by neo-conservatives and they are again, like when they faked intelligence to lay the grounds to invade Iraq, creating huge damage.

Cross-posted from Moon of Alabama 

CNN reports that White House chief of staff John Kelly is expected to resign soon. There have been similar rumors before, but this time the news may actually be true. That is bad for Trump and U.S. policies. Kelly is one a the few counterweights to national security advisor John Bolton. His replacement will likely be whoever Bolton chooses. That will move control over Trump policies further into the hands of the neo-conservatives.

It was Bolton who a week ago intentionally damaged U.S. relations with China.

The U.S. Justice Department arranged for Canada to arrest the chief financial officer of Huawei, Meng Wanzhou, over alleged U.S. sanctions violations with regards to Iran. The case is not over the sanction Trump recently imposed, but over an alleged collision with the sanction regime before the nuclear deal with Iran. The details are still unknown.

Meng Wanzhou is a daughter of the founder and main owner of Huawei, Ren Zhengfei, and was groomed to be his successor. The company is extremely well regarded in China. It is one of its jewel pieces and, with 170,000 employees and $100 billion in revenues, an important political actor.

The arrest on December 1 happened while president Trump was negotiating with president Xi of China about trade relations. Trump did not know about the upcoming arrest but Bolton was informed of it:

While the Justice Department did brief the White House about the impending arrest, Mr. Trump was not told about it. And the subject did not come up at the dinner with Mr. Xi.Mr. Trumps national security adviser, John R. Bolton, said on NPR that he knew about the arrest in advance, ..

Bolton surely should have informed Trump before his dinner with Xi, in which Bolton took part, but he didnt.

It was a trap. The arrest is a public slap in the face of China and to Xi personally. It will not be left unanswered. Whatever Trump may have agreed upon with Xi is now worthless. John Bolton intentionally sabotaged the...

How has Britain has become so normalised to Tory lawlessness and contempt for democracy? "IndyWatch Feed Europe"



To get a measure of how utterly normalised we've become to Tory lawlessness, just consider the fact that they became the first government in UK history to be held in contempt of parliament for deliberately refusing to comply with a parliamentary vote to release the legal advice they received on Brexit, and it's already been forgotten about within days.

This is always the case. Tory lawlessness and contempt for democracy always gets swept under the carpet and forgotten about.

Why are the Brits such willing doormats? "IndyWatch Feed Europe"


Just a year and a half after winning an unprecedented landslide victory the French President and his En Marche! "centrist" party have triggered a huge crisis with their policies of punishing workers and the poor, and pushing hard-right neoliberalism.

One of their first moves on assuming power was to lavish a huge tax cut on the wealthiest 1%, and ever since it's been one regressive and unpopular policy after another: Attacks on pensioners' incomes, anti-worker legislation, a move to flog off the French rail network to Macron's speculator mates, extremely unpopular education reforms, and the final straw was a series of fuel tax hikes designed to load the economic cost of combating climate change onto ordinary people, especially those who live in remote rural areas and rely on their cars for survival.

The result has been the rise of organic and leaderless gilets jaunes (yellow vests) mass demonstration all across France.

The mainstream media have obviously focused on examples of violence and vandalism in Paris in order to discredit the movement as much as possible, but the reality is that the vast majority of gilets jaunes protests are peaceful marches and roadblocks outside of Paris, which the overwhelming majority of French people support.

Within 18 months of Macron coming to power and imposing neoliberal policies and enforcing an unjustifiable upwards redistribution of wealth, the French public have had enough and they're fighting back.

The Zionist Circular Maze "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

Israel-EU-flags-840x420.jpg

By Gilad Atzmon

Share

On Thursday Israel cheered as the EU called on its member states that have not yet done so  to endorse the non-legally binding working definition of antisemitism employed by the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA).

Israel called this move a breakthrough, the European Jewish Congress hailed the declaration as  unprecedented.  Both are correct: the Europeans adoption of the IHRA definition of antisemitism is both a breakthrough and unprecedented. It confirms that Europe has explicitly abandoned its Athenian ethical ethos.

Rather than declaring its opposition to racism as a universal precept and denouncing all forms of discrimination and prejudice against any group or person of any X simply for being X (for example, a Jew for being a Jew, a Black person for being Black, a Gay person for being Gay, etc.), the EU has fallen into the most banal trap and subscribed to the primacy of Jewish suffering. 

A lot has been written criticising the IHRA definition, how it stifles free speech and treats one particular group as exceptional but I think we have failed to address the most important question the IHRA raises. Why are Jewish institutions so enthusiastic about a definition that clearly extinguishes the Zionist promise to make Jews people like all other people. The IHRA validates the vile antisemitic claim that Jews are somehow different than others, as no other people have advocated for nor benefit from an IHRA-like definition of prejudice directed solely against them. One should wonder why Jewish institutions see a need to impose such a definition on individuals, organisations, states and even continents.

The answer is circular. Jewish institutions need the IHRA definition simply because they have managed to impose such a definition --  since the acceptance of the IHRA definition points at boundless political power, the IHRA definition serves to target and suppress any exploration, discourse or even  discussion of such power.

This reflexive reasoning recalls the old rude joke; why does a dog lick its testicles?  Because it can.  ...

An open letter to Theresa May: Why I won't be backing your Brexit proposals "IndyWatch Feed Europe"


Dear Theresa,

One of the only arguments I've actually heard anyone actually make in favour of your last-minute shambles of a Brexit proposal is that we need to forget that you are a cold-hearted, ruthless, and self-serving Tory and back your Brexit proposal because it wouldn't be as economically damaging as a "no deal" flounce out of the EU.

This argument has a kernel of truth because the economic chaos of a "no deal" meltdown would undoubtedly be worse than the illogical and almost universally unpopular mess you and your Tory mates have cobbled together.

And we all know that under Tory rule it would be the poor and vulnerable who would be forced to suffer the costs of a "no deal" meltdown (while your mates Rees-Mogg, Redwood and mega-rich speculator class who bankroll your party would actually cash in on the crisis they created by speculating against Britain).

Just look at the way you lot callously loaded the burden of austerity dogma onto poor and ordinary people as you simultaneously lavished tax cuts and handouts on your mega-rich mates (you know the ones who bankroll your party).


But then there are four gaping flaws this argument that 'we should all pull together and back your rubbish deal because "no deal" would be worse'....

Appeal re Anti-Social Behaviour by Scarborough Kids "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

Appeal re Anti-Social Behaviour by Scarborough Kids

Scarborough Inspector appeals, due to increase in anti-social behaviour from children in town centre

Following an increase in the number of incidents of anti-social behaviour involving children in Scarborough Town Centre, Safer Neighbourhood Inspector Graeme Kynman is appealing to parents to know where their children are on an evening and assist police by setting boundaries around their behaviour.

Commenting on the recent incidents, Inspector Kynman said:

Both the police and the partner agencies we work with in Scarborough, have seen an increase in the number of anti-social behaviour incidents in the town centre that involve school age children. Reports range between youngsters being verbally abusive towards members of the public and shop owners in the local area.

In some situations, due to the seriousness of the offence, police have had to arrest and detain some of the young people involved. We do not take this decision lightly, as we are well aware that being arrested and detained has serious consequences on young peoples future prospects and employment opportunities. However, this level of anti-social behaviour cannot be tolerated and police do have to take action to protect members of the public, who have done nothing to have this level of behaviour targeted at them.

So I am today appealing to parents, carers and guardians please be aware of where your children are, who they are with and what they are doing in the evening. Officers will always try to deal with crime and anti-social behaviour with a measured response that is proportionate to the circumstances. However, if your child is identified as committing crime or anti-social behaviour, police will take action to ensure that the local public is protected and our town centre is a safe place to visit.

Theresa May just laughed in the face of the millions of workers her party has spent the last 8 years impoverishing "IndyWatch Feed Europe"


If you want to get to grips with the shocking levels of mainstream media bias in the UK just consider the reaction to Prime Minister's Questions on December 5th 2018.

Instead of criticising Theresa May for the absolutely shambolic state of her government, or the cynical and evasive scripted non-answers she responded with, or the usual cacophony of braying, jeering, and howling from the 300-odd millionaire elitists on the Tory benches, or the way she openly and contemptuously laughed in the face of the millions of workers her party has spent the last 8 years impoverishing, the BBC politics team and swathes of the mainstream media tried to create the absurd narrative that Theresa May somehow won the debate because Jeremy Corbyn asked the wrong questions!

The crux of their ridiculous narrative was that Jeremy Corbyn used his six questions to absolutely nail the Tory track record on poverty, collapsing wages, Universal Credit, and their grotesque publicity stunt the previous weekend of taking publicity photos in food banks (as if they're actually proud of their record of massively increasing poverty to the extent that huge numbers of people now rely on charitable food handouts to survive).

A common sense guide to fluoride, the great dental conspiracy magnet "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

..................So why do so many people object to fluoride being added to their water?

The major overarching objection is ethical: water fluoridation is, after all, a rare instance of government-orchestrated mass medication, in which citizens arent asked for their consent or able to opt out (except by drinking bottled water). Fluoride is effectively being added to drinking water as a medicine, and has been legally recognised in the UK as such. Imagine the public outcry that would follow if the government started unilaterally adding other medicines (such as statins, for instance) to our drinking water.

Beyond this ethical dilemma and the aesthetic issue of fluorosis (teeth mottling), there are a number of other reasonable medical objections to water fluoridation. These include: that the doses of fluoride individuals receive cannot be controlled, and go to everyone using the water supply, regardless of their age or state of health; that fluoride accumulates in the body over time, especially in the bones and the pineal gland in the brain (which regulates the release of some hormones, including melatonin); that fluoride can affect the functioning of the thyroid gland; there is also some academic research to suggest that fluoride may damage the brain and lower IQ levels; fluoride has also been linked to occurrences of bone damage, arthritis and cancer.

(If you would like to find out more about these and other objections to fluoride, Dr Paul Connett has compiled a comprehensive though unashamedly crusading 50 reasons to oppose fluoridation.)

Most of the scientific studies and academic research investigating the wider effects of fluoride on humans are complex and their conclusions remain the subject of ongoing debate. Very few experts would claim that water fluoridation is a maj...

Competition Is Dying, and Taking Capitalism With It "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

We need a revolution to cast off monopolies and restore entrepreneurial freedom.

By Jonathan Tepper and cross-posted from Bloomberg

On April 9, 2017, police officers from Chicagos OHare Airport removed Dr. David Dao from United Express Flight 3411. The flight was overbooked, but he refused to give up his seat. He had patients to treat the next day.

Fellow passengers recorded a video of him being dragged off the plane. You could hear gasps of disbelief from fellow passengers: Oh, my god! No! This is wrong. Look at what you did to him. No one could believe what they were seeing. In the video he could be seen bleeding from the mouth as police dragged him down the aisle. The video quickly went viral.

Uniteds CEO, however, did not apologize and instead blamed the passenger for being belligerent. Eventually, the outrage was so great that the CEO apologized and the airline reached an undisclosed settlement with Dr. Dao. Dr. Daos lawyer Thomas Demetrio told journalists that Dr. Dao left Vietnam in 1975 when Saigon fell and he was on a boat and he said he was terrified. He said that being dragged down the aisle was more horrifying and harrowing than what he experienced when leaving Vietnam.

Years ago, such a public relations disaster would have caused Uniteds stock to stumble, but it quickly recovered. Financial analysts agreed that it would have no effect on the airline. For all of 2016, the company reported full-year net income of $2.3 billion.

The results were so good that in 2016 Uniteds board approved a stock buyback of $2 billion, which is the financial equivalent of spraying yourself with champagne. Research analysts dismissed the incident, saying consumers might not have much choice but to fly UAL due to airline consolidation, which has reduced competition over most routes.

Online news sites helpfully explained what had happened with headlines like, Airlines Can Treat You Like Garbage Because They Are an Oligopoly. Once investors started focusing on Uniteds dominant market position, the stock price in fact went up.

The analysts were right. The American skies have gone from an open market with many competing airlines to a cozy oligopoly with four major airlines.

To say that there are four major airlines overstates the true level of competition. Most U.S. airlines dominate a local hub, unironically known as fortress hubs, where they face little competition and have a near monopoly

On 16.1.2018, as I was preparing  a crowdfunding to help me to pay legal bills incurred by the recent libel case against me, I received an email from PayPal Brand Risk Management. The letter said, 

We have recently reviewed your usage of PayPals services, as reflected in our records and on your website https://www.gilad.co.uk/.  Due to the nature of your activities, we have chosen to discontinue service to you in accordance with PayPals User Agreement. As a result, we have placed a permanent limitation on your account.

This was a surprise to me since my website is both an artistic and an intellectual platform. There is no hate or other inappropriate content on my site nor in any of my writings. I have never been challenged by any law enforcement body anywhere in the world.

It is likely that PayPal succumbed to pressure from one Zionist body or another. Their objective is obviously a crude attempt to interfere with my ability to raise the necessary funds for me to avoid risking bankruptcy.

I wrote to PayPals so called 'Brand Risk Management and asked for the information that had led them to their conclusion. On 27.11.2018 I received an email from PayPal stating as indicated in our letter to you of November 16, 2018, your account was permanently limited following our recent review of your account usage. We regrettably are not able to provide you with information about the basis of that action beyond what is included in our initial letter.

Les Gilets Jaunes A Bright Yellow Sign of Distress "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

Things are much worse than officials and media in Paris have let on.

By Diane Johnstone and cross-posted from Unz.com

Every automobile in France is supposed to be equipped with a yellow vest. This is so that in case of accident or breakdown on a highway, the driver can put it on to ensure visibility and avoid getting run over.

So the idea of wearing your yellow vest to demonstrate against unpopular government measures caught on quickly. The costume was at hand and didnt have to be provided by Soros for some more or less manufactured color revolution. The symbolism was fitting: in case of socio-economic emergency, show that you dont want to be run over.

As everybody knows, what set off the protest movement was yet another rise in gasoline taxes. But it was immediately clear that much more was involved. The gasoline tax was the last straw in a long series of measures favoring the rich at the expense of the majority of the population. That is why the movement achieved almost instant popularity and support.

The Voices of the People

The Yellow Vests held their first demonstrations on Saturday, November 17 on the Champs-Elyses in Paris. It was totally unlike the usual trade union demonstrations, well organized to march down the boulevard between the Place de la Rpublique and the Place de la Bastille, or the other way around, carrying banners and listening to speeches from leaders at the end. The Gilets Jaunes just came, with no organization, no leaders to tell them where to go or to harangue the crowd. They were just there, in the yellow vests, angry and ready to explain their anger to any sympathetic listener.

Briefly, the message was this: we cant make ends meet. The cost of living keeps going up, and our incomes keep going down. We just cant take it any more. The government must stop, think and change course.

But so far, the reaction of the government was to send police to spray torrents of tear gas on the crowd, apparently to keep the people at a distance from the nearby Presidential residence, the Elysee Palace. President Macron was somewhere else, apparently considering himself above and beyond it all.

But those who were listening could learn a lot about the state of France today. Especially in the sm...

Is food bank gloating the sickest Tory publicity stunt yet? "IndyWatch Feed Europe"


Since the Tories came to power in 2010 rates of poverty in the United Kingdom have soared, and ever more people have found themselves in such dire economic circumstances that they've had to resort to charitable food handouts from an ever expanding network of food banks.

The Tories always bluster on about how "work is the best route out of poverty" but what they don't ever admit is that under their extreme economic mismanagement the number of UK workers living in poverty has been increasing way faster than the new jobs Tory ministers keep bragging about.

The upshot of this deliberate Tory policy of turning the UK into a low-wage economy is that four million British workers are living in poverty, and ever increasing numbers of working people are becoming reliant upon food bank charity in order to feed themselves and their families.

You would have thought that the dire consequences of this ideologically driven Tory assault on the economic well-being of UK workers would be a source of shame for them, but you'd be making the mistake of imagining that members of this grotesque elitism club are capable of feelings like guilt, remorse, or shame.

In fact the Tories are so shameless that they actually decided to launch a coordinated publicity stunt to gloat about the wave of food poverty they've inflicted.

It's difficult to imagine the thinking processes of the Tory wonks who came up with a coordinated effort to send Tory MP out to their local food banks for publicity pictures to upload onto Twitter.

Perhaps they thought that pictures of Tory MPs at food banks would cast them in a sympathetic light as if they actually care about people in poverty?

Aside from the fact that numerous Tories were so inept at pretending they cared about poor people that they all lazily copied the same copy n' paste Tweets, there was also the obvious public backlash to consider.

Soaring rates of poverty in the UK didn't just happen by chance. The huge rise in families in such poverty that...

F.A.N. Newsletter "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

On President Trumps desk is currently a bill created and promoted by the American Dental Association that--if signed into law--could allow the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to provide funding to state dental associations and regional oral health coalitions promoting fluoridation and lobbying for its expansion.  In other words, even more tax-dollars could go into pro-fluoridation propaganda with little accountability.  Needless to say not a penny of this will be used to tell the American people about the U.S. government-funded studies linking exposure to fluoride during pregnancy and lowered IQ and increased indicators of ADHD in offspring (Bashash et al.,2017, 2018)
H.R. 2422, called the Action for Dental Health Act of 2017, is the proverbial wolf in sheeps clothing. At first glance, directing federal funds through CDC grants to innovative dental programs for the poor and underserved seems like a good idea.  In fact, I believe the majority of this money will go to worthy programs that are less harmful, more effective alternatives to fluoridation.  This is one of the obstacles we face in requesting a veto from the President, but we need to educate him about the potential risk that will come with his signature.
In the House and Senate we worked to amend the bill to prohibit the promotion of fluoridation.  While some good amendments were eventually made, reducing the funding significantly and putting some checks and balances on how this grant money would be used, we were unsuccessful in getting an amendment we wanted prohibiting the promotion of fluoridation.
While fluoridation isnt mentioned in the text or in the ADAs lobbying materials, it is a primary part of their Action for Dental Health Initiative. And if you read between the lines you can see that the vague language of the bill authorizes the use of federal funds to develop and implement initiatives to improve oral healththrough community-wide dental disease prevention programs; and by increasing public awa...

To be Remembered "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

Screen Shot 2018-12-03 at 15.01.04.png Share

 

George H.W. Bush, the 41st president of the United States, died last Friday. President Bush was loved by the Jews. Over the weekend we saw an endless parade of Jewish individuals and organisations paying homage to Bush for his commitment to Israel and to the Jews. 

 The Republican Jewish Coalition (RJC) described Bush as a great friend of Israel, the Jewish people, and the RJC. The group joined other Jewish voices in noting the work Bush did to help bring Jews from the former Soviet Union and Ethiopia to Israel as well as his actions to help ensure the safety of Israel. Bush also led the effort in the UN to repeal the Zionism is Racism resolution and he stood up against Saddam Hussein who, at the time, was one of the last Arab leaders to oppose Israel and Zionism.

Yet, it was the photo of Bush at the Wailing Wall (above) that grabbed my attention. On Saturday, the Israeli press circulated a photograph of the  41st president in suspiciously intimate proximity to the Wailing Wall.

 We have seen variations of this photograph so many times that we have forgotten to ask the critical questions: What attracts world leaders to that wall? Is it possible that our world leaders are all (somehow) so libidinally attracted to walls that they do not even mind  being caught on camera in such an intimate moment with that one particular wall?  And if not, how do we explain the fact that so many of our world leaders are caught so close to that Jewish wall with their eyes closed?  And more crucially, what is it about the Zionist culture  that inspires this demand to publicise powerful goyim kissing the sacred wall?

 Every world leader including the future British king who has visited Israel in the last decades has been photographed kissing, touching, flirting and even talking to that wall. Today I ask Why? It is likely that our incredibly lame world leaders do not understand the powerful symboli...
