GA: Earlier this evening, Youtube deleted The Richie Allen Show channel, one of the best internet program on the net. You may want to ask yourself what is left of our elementary freedom. With Youtube and Google around, the idea of an open society feels like a remote nostalgia... 

YouTube Has Informed Me That It Will Soon Delete The Richie Allen Show Channel.

https://www.richieallen.co.uk/youtube-has-informed-me-that-it-will-soon-delete-the-richie-allen-show-channel/

By Richie Allen

YouTube operates a three strikes and you are out policy. Content creators are told that if they violate community standards three times, their channel and all its content will be deleted. Two weeks ago The Richie Allen Show received a strike. Incredibly, I was informed that I had violated the bullying and harassment guidelines. The video in question was of an interview I conducted with Wolfgang Halbig over two years ago about The Sandy Hook school shooting. There was nothing harassing about it, there was certainly no bullying. I repeatedly challenged Wolfgang in the interview and pressed him for evidence to support his theory. Nevertheless that was strike one. YouTube said that as punishment, I couldn't live stream for three months. I don't live stream anyway. But of course I was worried. I had been warned repeatedly, by commercial presenters and producers and former colleagues of mine, that the show would be targeted.

Strike two came this morning. The offending video this time was an interview I did with Michael Rivero about the shooting of journalist Alison Parker and cameraman Adam Ward in Virginia in August 2015. Yes that's right, YouTube has issued me with a community guideline strike for an interview I uploaded two and a half years ago. Get this, in the interview, Mike clearly states that he does not...

Cash Must Not Be Made the Scapegoat "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

In the War on Cash, a rare defense of physical money by an ECB Board Member.

The proposed EU-wide cash restrictions could come into effect as early as this year. But defenders of physical cash have an unexpected ally in their struggle: Yves Mersch, a member of the European Central Banks executive board. In a speech hosted by the Bundesbank last week, the Luxembourgian central banker exalted cashs value as legal tender and heaped scorn on the oft-heard argument that its anonymity only helps criminals.

Protection of privacy matters to all of us. Privacy protects people from the risk of a surveillance state and thought police, he told his audience. No particular link can be established statistically between cash and criminal activities. The focus must be on the fight against crime. Cash must not be made the scapegoat.

One of the worlds biggest issuers of notes and coins, the Bundesbank was a fitting location for a speech on the virtues of physical money. In total, 592 billion of the 1.1 trillion of banknotes in circulation at the end of 2016 were issued by the Bundesbank.

Judging by recent statements, the Bundesbank wants to preserve this arrangement. Bundesbank president Jens Weidmann, who is hotly tipped to replace Mario Draghi as ECB president in 2019, has warned that it would be disastrous if people started to believe cash would be abolished an oblique reference to the risk of negative interest rates and the escalating war on cash triggering a run on cash.

That didnt stop five national governments Cyprus, Bulgaria, Belgium, Portugal and Denmark from approaching the ECB last year to consult on measures to limit the use of cash, according to Mersch. Meanwhile, Sweden is widely regarded as the most cashless society on the planet

USA - Franklins Fluoride Return to Safe Levels "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

...............................Both Rudegair and Jamieson have stated that the morning of February 8, the city received more complaints and contacted the Department of Environmental Protection. They say that at that time, they believed the problem was probably coming from one of two of the industrial plants in the area of the reports.

That is when the city issued the Do Not Drink Water warning to what seemed to be the affected area (previous coverage)
That morning, upon inspecting the water flow, it was determined there was a malfunction of one of the valves. Uncertified field testing of the water showed elevated levels of fluoride. Staff at Barrett Flats also noticed that a pump that put the flow of fluoride into the system was not functioning, and all of the fluoride tanks were empty. They discovered three different malfunctions with the pump which allowed elevated amounts of fluoride into the system. At that time, the staff cut off the fluoride flow from both plants and began to flush the lines, while continuing to take field tests, according to Rudegeair.
Although the malfunctions were discovered on the morning of the February 8, city officials still arent certain exactly when it occurred. When asked, City Manager Tracy Jamieson said, The staff would have noticed if the fluoride was gone on the seventh, but noted that it was something that they would continue to investigate.............

Headlines in major UK Newspapers today:

The drugs do work: antidepressants are effective, study shows

Antidepressants work some more effectively than others in treating depression, according to authors of a groundbreaking study which doctors hope will finally put to rest doubts about the controversial medicine.

Millions more people around the world should be prescribed pills or offered talking therapies, which work equally well for moderate to severe depression, say the doctors, noting that just one in six people receive proper treatment in the rich world and one in 27 in the developing world.

If cancer or heart patients suffered this level of under-treatment, there would be a public outcry, they say.

Its official: antidepressants are not snake oil or a conspiracy  they work

Depression is the single largest contributor to global disability that we have a massive challenge for humankind, said John Geddes, professor of epidemiological psychiatry at Oxford University. It affects around 350 million people worldwide and instances rose almost 20% from 2005-2015.

On the Fence About Fluoride? "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

Are thousands of communities around the world (especially in Europe and the United States, still using fluoride? Of course.
The sad truth is that fluoride compounds that are put into our water, toothpaste, and even vitamins were never tested for safety before being approved. Recent independent research by scientists not associated with dental trade organizations have found that fluoride is NOT effective in preventing tooth decay; it actually causes tooth deformity in children, along with a long list of other atrocities. It is so toxic in fact, that toothpaste companies in the U.S. are now required to display a poison warning. Even pro-fluoridation scientists admit that there is no real research showing that fluoride helps prevent cavities.
In 1995, neuro-toxicologist and former Director of Toxicology at Forsyth Dental Center in Boston, Dr. Phyllis Mullenix, published research that shows that fluoride builds up in the brains of animals causing brain damage. When pregnant animals were administered relatively low doses of fluoride their offspring suffered brain damage and hyperactivity (ADD-like symptoms). Adult animals given fluoride experienced the opposite effect hypo-activity, or sluggishness.
The toxic effects of fluoride on the central nervous system were also confirmed by the release of previously classified government research. This research and subsequent studies show that children exposed to higher levels of fluoride had lower IQs. A study published in Brain Research shows that rats drinking only 1 part per million fluoride (NaF) in water had lesions in their brains similar to Alzheimers disease and dementia.

After Years of Crisis in Spain, Pensioners Next to Feel the Pain "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

Doubts emerge as to who is saving whom.

Structural unemployment and falling wages, precarious jobs, an endless brain drain, a rapidly ageing population, and the governments constant pilfering of the national pensions pot have all taken their toll on Spains social security system. As we warned last November, the countrys Social Security Reserve Fund, which was meant to serve as a nationwide nest egg to guarantee future pension payouts given Spains burgeoning ranks of pensioners has been bled virtually dry by the government.

To avoid wiping out the fund altogether in 2017, the Spanish government extended a 10.1 billion interest-free loan to Spains social security system, which enabled it to pay out the two extra pension payments due in June and December. That way, only about 7.5 billion would be tapped from Spains public pension nest egg. Emptying the pot altogether last year would have been politically unpalatable, said El Pas. Instead, it will be emptied this year as the social security system racks up yet another massive annual shortfall.

In 2016, the system registered its biggest deficit in its history (18.1 billion), which was covered by the pension pot. In 2017, the deficit is estimated to be about 17 billion, according to the government. Thats roughly 1.5% of Spanish GDP. The deficit in 2018 is projected to be 18-20 billion

USA - Why do we have fluoride in our water? "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

Fluoride is found naturally in soil, water, and foods. It is also produced synthetically for use in drinking water, toothpaste, mouthwashes and various chemical products.

Water authorities add fluoride to the municipal water supply, because studies have shown that adding it in areas where fluoride levels in the water are low can reduce the prevalence of tooth decay in the local population.
Tooth decay is one of the most common health problems affecting children. Many people worldwide cannot afford the cost of regular dental checks, so adding fluoride can offer savings and benefits to those who need them.
However, concerns have arisen regarding fluoride's effect on health, including problems with bones, teeth, and neurological development..........................

SBC in the Eye AGAIN! "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

SBC in the Eye AGAIN!

For the second time this month, Scarborough Borough Council has made it into the pages of the Private Eye magazine, this time on its old stamping ground the Rotten Boroughs column where readers nationwide have been treated, in recent years, to a great many exposs of the antics of arguably the most despised local authority in the country; most recently over the inexplicable decision to waste 4million plus on destroying The Futurist Theatre.

A follow-up to these revelations is keenly anticipated; one source has promised to disclose details of the membership of what is described as a mini-cartel but only after leaving the Council. We could name them now, but why not let them suffer a while? The next local elections at SBC will take place in May 2019.  Of course, by-elections do occur, from time to time. We may not have too long to wait . . . and then the Council can commission MAZARS to investigate. (LMAO).

All this, of course, follows hard on the heels of Helen PIDDs humiliating swipe at SBC Leader Councillor Derek BASTIMAN [Con.] in the Guardian/Observer, describing him (quite accurately) as a former estate agent with a penchant for loud shirts and cold chains about right for a local authority whose activities extend to little more than emptying the trash and flogging off (or giving away) the Boroughs assets. Only yesterday, BASTIMANs Tories lost overall control of the Council.

The Tory stranglehold on the Yorkshire coast is already unravelling with todays announcement that East Riding of Yorkshire Leader Councillor Stephen PARNABY [Con.] will not stand next time. BASTIMAN is heading the same way. All political lives end in failure, right?

Looking at Twitter this afternoon/evening, there are (literally) thousands of people with Twitter handles like 'Despise the Tories' or with '#FBPE' after their names or who more generally identify themselves as supporters of Jeremy Corbyn and/or the Labour Party who are joining together to sing an exultant hymn of praise to a BBC interviewer - namely Andrew Neil.

It's amusing (to me) just how many of them begin their praise for Andrew Neil by writing 'I've been critical of Andrew Neil in the past but' and 'I'm no fan of Andrew Neil but...' or 'I confess to not being your greatest fan, but...' or 'I don't particularly warm to AN but...' (and many other variations thereon) before immediately going on to say 'I applaud you today' or 'this was very good' or 'fair play to him with this interview' or 'Biff! Take that, Baker' or 'or 'this is brilliant journalism from him here in skewering Steve Baker' or 'this is a lesson in political interviewing - well played!' or 'credit where its due'. (And 'credit where credit's due' is proving particularly popular).

Why not read Jeremy Corbyn's "red rag" speech for yourself? "IndyWatch Feed Europe"



On Tuesday February 20th 2018 Jeremy Corbyn gave a speech to the EFF confederation of British manufacturers about Labour's economic strategy. The response of the Evening Standard (edited by former Tory Chancellor George Osborne) was to publish a front page hatchet job describing the speech as a "red rag" to the City of London, and Jeremy Corbyn's economic strategy as a plot to turn London into "the last Soviet era city west of Pyongyang".

Shockingly hundreds of thousands of Evening Standard readers will have uncritically accepted this ludicrously hyperbolic appraisal of Jeremy Corbyn's speech without even referring to the source material and judging it for themselves.

So here's the speech so that you can judge for yourself whether George Osborne's minions at the Evening Standard were justified in claiming that Corbyn's speech is some kind of proof of his intention to turn Britain into a Soviet style state where private industry is banned, or the outline of a sensible economic strategy to undo the damage and reduce the private debt mountains caused by four decades of hard-right economic dogma:

Political Risk Rises in Italy as Anti-euro Rebels Flirt with Real Power "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

By Ambrose Evans Pritchard and cross-posted from The Daily Telegraph

It had been assumed that Silvio Berlusconi would control the Italian Right. Suddenly the EU could be looking at a Lega prime minister named Matteo Salvini who plays by very different rules

Large banks and hedge funds are quietly advising clients to brace for trouble ahead of the Italian elections in early March, warning that a late surge by anti-EU populist parties threatens to shatter Europes brief political calm.

A new batch of polls over the weekend showed a further hollowing out of the Italian political centre, with rising risks of gridlock or even the nightmare scenario of a radical coalition in open breach of EU treaty law.

Markets have become inured to political risk after a series of false alarms: the election of Donald Trump, and populist jitters in Holland and France. Worries over a global financial shock from the Brexit referendum were shown to be absurd.

But this may have led to complacency over Italy, which faces the double danger of electoral chaos just as investors start to fret about the tapering of bond purchases by the European Central Bank, currently the only major buyer of Italian treasury debt.

Italian corporates do no offer enough political risk premium ahead of the March 4 election. We would recommend cutting exposure to the region, said Matthew Bailey, a credit strategist at JP Morgan.

Regulatory filings by the worlds biggest hedge fund, Bridgewater, show that it has taken out a giant $22bn (16bn) short position on European equities (as of early February), with big bets against Italys Intesa Sanpaulo and Unicredit, and the energy groups ENI and ENEL.

Bridgewater is also targeting firms in France, Spain, Holland, and Germany, but what is striking is that it tripled its short bets against Italy to $3.2bn between October and February.

This coincides with the steady rise of rebel parties and the seeming death spiral of Italys ruling centre-Left, the main home for pro-Europeans. A new Demetra poll showed the Five Star movement, founded by neo-anarchist comedian Beppe Grillo, pulling far ahead as the biggest single party with 29.4pc of the vote.

The other upset is that the firebrand hard-Right Lega Nord has drawn neck and neck with Silvio Berlusconis Forza Italia and could be in the extraordinary position of picking the next prime minister under the coalition deal of the combined political Right, if they secure a combined majority as looks increasingly likely.

This would propel Lega leader Matteo Salvini who calls the euro a crime against humanity to the centre...

A Tangled Web of Religion in Politics "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

jn.png Share

By Laura Stuart 

https://www.islam21c.com/politics/tangled-web-religion-politics/

Some may say that the political arena is no place for religious sensibilities but, now and again, religion does raise its head.

I am a Muslimah who recently joined the Labour Party, not because I believe any political party can solve societys ills but because I had hopes that life in the U.K. could be better than it is now and that we can act to pursue such an aim. In this instance, there emerged a person of upstanding and fair character, a man who seemed to want to make our society more equal and just. Such was Jeremy Corbyn. Hundreds of thousands thought the same and they too joined the Labour party with the same hopes and the same desire to get Jeremy Corbyn elected.

Such was the shock of the establishment elites at the prospect of a leader who seemingly did not believe in working for the benefit of the few to the detriment of the many, that all manner of dark arts were, and are, employed to ensure he never reaches the seat of power. There are some very wealthy people happy enough to make money in this country that, by various offshore activities, minimise the taxes they pay. It is people such as these that do not want a man with a vision of a more egalitarian society in power.

Then there are the foreign policy interests. It seems likely that the Israeli state is particularly interested in ensuring the U.K. has a leader who will turn a blind eye to clear injustice. For this reason, Israel suddenly and unexpectedly sent its top man, Mark Regev, to our shores.[2] This was once the post of Ambassador became vacant after the then-ambassador was reportedly left vulnerable to blackmail from his frequent late night visitors to his official residence.

Most Muslims will know Mark Regev as the man who regularly appeared on their television screens justifying the bombing of civilians in their homes; the raining down of phosphorus on the population of Gaza, and even the slaughtering with missiles of innocent children on the beach.[1]

Regevs main objective seems to be to mobilise various established I...

USA - Cambridge receives Water Fluoridation Quality Award "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

Cambridge awardFor the fifth straight year, the city of Cambridge has earned the Water Fluoridation Quality Award given through the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The Cambridge utilities and public works department was recognized for the award during the Feb. 5 Cambridge City Council meeting.

Fluoridation is the adjustment of fluoride in drinking water to a level that is effective for preventing tooth decay.

The award recognized those communities that achieved excellence in community water fluoridation by maintaining a consistent level of fluoride in drinking water throughout 2016, said Utilities-Public Works Director Todd Schwab. Weve got a really good crew.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention initiated the Water Fluoridation Quality Awards program to recognize outstanding performance in fluoridation management by public water systems.

Awarded for just doing their job in performing fluoride management ?
What about all the other water companies who fail to meet these standards?

Guidelines for fluoride intakeare they appropriate? "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

International & American Associations for Dental Research
Guidelines for fluoride intakeare they appropriate?
February 20, 2018, International & American Associations for Dental Research
The appropriate use of fluoride has transformed oral health over the past 70 years, in part due to the guidelines created for fluoride intake. Recently, researchers are questioning these longstanding guidelines which served as advisory recommendations for decades. This issue of Advances in Dental Research, an e-Supplement to the Journal of Dental Research (JDR), presents the proceedings of a symposium at the 95th General Session of IADR in San Francisco, USA and includes reviews that critically examine the current guidelines for fluoride intake.

Since the benefits of fluoride in drinking water were first recognized, it has been accepted that fluoride is ingested and that remains the basis for automatic delivery. However, sources of ingested fluoride have changed and in parallel the prevalence and severity of dental caries and dental fluorosis have changed, leading to the idea that it is time to re-visit guidance on fluoride intake. Optimum fluoride intake should balance the prevention of dental caries with minimizing the occurrence of undesirable dental fluorosis.

"Guidelines for fluoride intake were first proposed when water was the only important source of fluoride. Now, there is a variety of ways of delivering fluoride and it was time to review these guidelines, considering current knowledge of the balance of benefit and risk," said guest editor Andrew Rugg-Gunn, Newcastle University, UK and the Borrow Foundation. "Experts from around the world gave reassurance that the current optimum range of fluoride intake is soundly based and that there is good evidence for raising the upper limit of fluoride intake. With the increase in the use of fluoride for preventing caries in adults, different guidance should be given for fluoride intake in adults compared with infants and young children."

"While changes to current guidance on adequate intake and upper limit of fluoride intake have not been settled, it was agreed that there are strong grounds for reconsidering current guideline...

An Open Letter to SBC Leader Councillor Derek BASTIMAN "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

An Open Letter to SBC Leader Councillor Derek BASTIMAN [Con.] by TIM HICKS, concerning SBC Policy on NYE contributors arbitrarily designated vexatious.

~~~~~

Dear Councillor Bastiman,

Thank you for your e mail.

Further to our recent correspondence, I can confirm that our correspondence and my response to the Councils position have now been published in the NYE. It can be accessed below:

Other than some editorial changes, my response to the Councils position in the article is as previously disclosed to yourself, Mrs Dixon and Mr Kitson in advance.

I think it is enormously to your credit that you engaged in debate with me. However, I was sorry that we could not come to some consensus, or way forward on this. At the end of our correspondence, you summarised your position thus:

Dear Mr Hicks

Thank you for your email containing your draft article.

I cannot support or agree with the inferences and conclusions that you have drawn from my email correspondence, which I believe to be clear.

Please take this as my final response on the matter.

Kind regards

Cllr Derek Bastiman Leader of the Council Scarborough Borough Council

Town Hall, St Nicholas Street Scarborough, YO11 2HG

The Councils policy on e mails from persons designated as vexatious has been raised and discussed in council.

SBC 06.11.17 email interception revelations in full Council

However, the wider ramifications of this policy as applied to NYE contributors and FOI requests have not. It is not generally known that SBC Officers have followed a related policy of declining to provide information requested in Freedom of Information (FOI) Requests from some NYE contributors on the basis that they have been designated as vexatious. This decision is usually notified anonymously in an unsigned mail. Similarly, SBC Officers have also followed a policy of ignoring correspondence from some NYE contributors on the same basis.

In this context, I would refer to the article in the NYE by former Councillor Mike Ward:
