Russia Intensifies Airstrikes Against Israeli U.S. Proxy Terrorists In Hama, Syria "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

TEHRAN (FNA)- Russian fighter jets carried out fresh combat sorties over [Israeli U.S. Proxy] militants’ positions in Northern Hama, leaving 20 anti-government fighters dead and several more wounded. The Russian fighter jets, tipped off by intelligence agents, launched heavy airstrikes on an underground stronghold of Forsan al-Hagh Brigade near Ma’ardes, claiming lives of 20 militants. […]

Black Activists Rally For Unarmed White Man Shot by Cops "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

black-protester-cops

The phrase “white lives matter” has recently come to be considered by many as a typically racist response to the Black Lives Matter movement. But since white and black lives BOTH matter, should the groups work together and support each other instead of butting heads?

According to Dennis Romero of LA Weekly, one group of mostly African-American civil rights leaders is stepping up to question a deputy’s shooting of an unarmed, white, homeless man in Castaic — because it just might be the right thing to do.

“We can’t only be advocates when black people are killed by police unjustly,” says Najee Ali, founder of Project Islamic Hope.

Ali is organizing a coalition of civil rights groups, including Project Islamic Hope, the National Action Network and the L.A. Urban Policy Roundtable, which will call on state Attorney General Kamala Harris to launch an investigation of the shooting.

“They shot this homeless man for nothing,” Ali said, based on witness testimonies. “He was unarmed and they killed him. I found out he was white later on. It doesn’t matter to me.”

A witness told reporters the man, later identified as 51-year-old William Bowers, was shot without warning immediately after he got off a bike.

“According to investigators, deputies attempted to stop the suspect after they recognized him from previous interactions and knew he was on probation for a narcotic violation,” he said. “When the suspect fled on foot, deputies followed him and eventually made contact with him. It was at this time that a deputy-involved shooting occurred.”

The unarmed Bowers was fatally shot in the upper body and declared dead at the scene, Barraza said.

Romero states, “While Ali and his coalition wait to hear from Harris, some probes have already been launched in response to the confrontation, including a Sheriff’s Department review and an inquiry by the District Attorney’s Office.”

Ali is hoping to see investigators from outside the Los Angeles law enforcement community take a look at the deputy’s actions.

Ali said the shooting, besides being a possibly deadly violation of civil rights, also points out the need for the L.A. Sheriff’s Department to catch up with the Los Angeles Police Department in equipping its cops with body cameras.

There is no known video of the incident, but anyone with information or documentation is asked to call authorities at 323-890-5500.

It is unfortunate that this unarmed homeless man was shot and killed by police, but Ali is giving us a great example of how people should react. Regardless of skin color, religion, country of origin, or any other distinguishing factor; the life of an unarmed person was taken and there needs to be justice.

People need to unite to make sure these killers are held acco...

Obama Vetoes 9-11 Victim’s Bill that would allow them to sue Saudi Arabia "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

On Friday, Barack Hussein Obama Soetoro Sobarkah thumbed his nose at the families of the victims of the 9-11 attacks and protected Islamic Sharia ruled Saudi Arabia by vetoing the 9/11 victim's bill which would have allowed families to sue the Middle Eastern country that was intricately tied to those attacks.

The Washington Times reports:

As expected, President Obama vetoed a bill Friday that would give families of victims of the 9/11 terrorist attacks the ability to sue Saudi Arabia, setting up the potential for the first congressional veto override of Mr. Obama's presidency.

Mr. Obama said in his veto message that he has "deep sympathy" for the families of the victims, but the bill would invite retaliatory lawsuits against U.S. personnel abroad and weakens national security by allowing individual judges, instead of the executive branch, to designate foreign governments as sponsors of terrorism.

The legislation "does not enhance the safety of Americans from terrorist attacks, and undermines core U.S. interests," Mr. Obama said.

Actually, what it would have is call into question why we are in Afghanistan and Iraq rather than in Saudi Arabia. Furthermore, it would have called into question the Bush family's ties to the Saudi's as well, including why President George W. Bush was so apt to get more than two dozen of Osama bin Laden's family out of the country following the grounding of flights over united States' airspace.

In 2014, the families won a legal batter that allows them to sue the Saudi government for their involvement in the attacks. They also demanded that classified 9/11 and FBI reports be declassified. At least 28 pages that had remained classified were declassified in July 2016.

The Saudi's threatened to dump US Treasury holdings if Congress passed the bill. Their bluff was called and they did nothing.

Still, representatives in Congress are seeking to override the veto, which requires a two-thirds vote.

"It's disappointing the president chose to veto legislation unanimously passed by Congress and overwhelmingly supported by the American people," said Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX). "Even more disappointing is the president's refusal to listen to the families of the victims taken from us on September 11, who should have the chance to hold those behind the deadliest terrorist attack in Ame...

Increased Number of Haitians Seek Asylum Under laxed Rules Promoted by Homeland Security "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

The Washington Times reported that the united States is now seeing a surge of illegal alien invaders along the southern border from Haiti, where Haitians have been coached to claim asylum in order to earn quick processing and immediate entry into the republic. Since the Haitian earthquake in January of 2010, the federal government awarded Haitians "special treatment" since their government and nation was devastated. "Haitians who were in the US by January 2011 were given Temporary Protected Status, allowing them to stay, while illegal immigrants who came after that were generally overlooked." But, the new surge of Haitians gaining illegal entry into the united States has Homeland Security alarmed, prompting Secretary Jeh Johnson to declare that "deportation agents would once again begin deporting Haitian illegal immigrants picked up at the border through a process known as expedited removal." But, Johnson purposefully let the cat out of the bag on how to stay in the united States without threat of deportation – claim asylum.

The Washington Time reported:

Analysts called it a backdoor amnesty that's increasingly being abused by illegal immigrants who normally would have no shot of staying in the U.S., but who, by claiming asylum, can gain a foothold here. The Haitians are the latest to discover the route, likely encouraged by smugglers who stand to make thousands of dollars from each migrant they transport through Mexico and up to the U.S. land border.

A video obtained by Rep. Duncan Hunter, California Republican, which originated with U.S. Customs and Border Protection, shows Haitians massing outside of a Mexican detention facility on that country's border with Guatemala, ahead of what analysts said was likely a long journey north to the U.S.

Serious Question "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

I really don't care what Ted Cruz does or doesn't do. But I wonder why he endured getting booed off the stage at the Republican National Convention if he was going to turn around and endorse Trump anyway. I guess he could have concluded that he miscalculated when he decided to not to endorse when it really mattered. That's the only explanation that makes any sense to me.

I wonder what factors led him to conclude that he needed to kiss Trump's ring now?

You Call This Expert Opinion? "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

Should I show any special respect or deference to American University Professor Allan Lichtman because he has correctly predicted the winner of every presidential election since 1984? Think about it. Who did you think was going to win the elections of 1984, 1988, 1992, 1996, 2000, 2004, 2008 or 2012? Did you get any of those wrong?

I mean, there was a point in 1988 after the Democratic convention when Michael Dukakis had a solid polling lead, but by late September it was obvious he was going to lose. Going into election night in 1992 and 1996, I had no doubt that Clinton would win. I never had any doubts that Obama would win either. The only time I was wrong was in 2004, and I think the entire Republican establishment thought Bush had lost after the preliminary exit polls came out. And, in any case, I didn’t know who would win or have a strong opinion about who would win until I got swept up with enthusiasm on Election Day itself. As for 2000, I don’t even know what it means to have predicted the winner. Did Lichtman predict that Bush would lose the popular vote and get saved by a ballot design in Palm Beach County? It seems to me that if you predicted Bush would win, you were more wrong than right.

I really only see 2004 as an election where predicting Bush would win should earn you any analytical credit. Before that (and excluding 2000 for the aforementioned reasons), I think you have to go back to 1980 to find an election where it was difficult to foresee the winner more than a month out from the election.

So, we have a professor who claims to be eight for eight in predicting the outcome of our presidential elections and the average American probably has a record of seven for eight. It’s a small sample to begin with, and the deviation from the norm is doubly insignificant.

So, Lichtman says Trump will win.

I don’t think I owe his opinion any more deference than the man on the street.

If he had predicted in mid-September the winner of the last eight World Series, then I’d be impressed.

When to Invite the Far Right to the Party "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

I think it’s fair to call Jacobin a Trotskyist Marxist publication, since its publisher freely self-identifies that way. For you, maybe that means that you’re not interested in anything they say. For me, it means that I don’t share their agenda. Yet, we do sometimes come to similar conclusions and make like points. I recognized a lot of my own analysis in Marshall Steinbaum’s latest piece which bears the subtitle: Blame Elites for the Far Right’s Rise.

Steinbaum seeks to draw parallels between the mainstream right’s reaction to the election of Barack Obama and the mainstream right in Germany’s Weimar Republic’s decision to invite the far right into their political coalition. Put less diplomatically, Steinbaum is arguing that German rightwing economic elites and industrialists grew frustrated with their inability to form governing coalitions during Weimar and decided to use the numbers and enthusiasm provided by the Nazis to put them over the top. Obviously, they soon thereafter discovered that the tail was wagging the dog.

The obvious problem here is that it fulfills Godwin’s Law at the outset, with the accompanying risk that people won’t take his argument seriously.

DONNIE: They were Nazis, Walter?
WALTER: They were threatening castration, Donnie. Do you want to split hairs here?

But this line of argument is justified because it’s based on a presumption that human nature is consistent and stable, and that rightwing financial elites faced with a persistent difficulty in crafting sufficiently large political coalitions will succumb to the same temptations in the 2010s that lured them in during the 1920s.

On the most basic level, there are always more workers than bosses and more ordinary people than rich people. Therefore, it’s a natural challenge for rightwing economic barons to form majorities or even pluralities that can gain enough power to govern. They traditionally have the advantage of buying ink by the barrel, and in recent times they’ve formed think tanks and professorships, allowing them to manufacture “research” that supports anything from the safety of tobacco to the myth of climate change. They also utilize nationalism, chauvinism, white ethno-religious supremacy, and huge helpings of fear to shift Average Joe’s focus from his financial self-interest to resentment of “an effete core of impudent snobs who characterize themselves as intellectuals.”

That rightwing political parties, sponsored by hoarding rightwing economic elites, will feel the need to fund fake research and news and to make these crass appeals is baked in the cake. Without it, they’d struggle to get 2% of the vote.

But getting over the political hump can be easy or it can be hard. The far right can be taken for granted or even actively shunned in good times. What the 2008 and 2012 election results showed, however, is that these are no longer good times for a party that seeks to represent elite rightwing business interests on the backs of modestly conservative white middle class and working class folks. In the wake of the 2012 election, Sean Trende tried to reassure conservatives that all was not lost. He wrote a very influential piece, The Missing White Voters, that had (as it turned out) an unfortunate thesis. Trende argued that “a large portion of the demographic change we saw in the 2012 electorate was not due to increased turnout, but rath...

Too Big to Compromise "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

Vox just published an interview that Zack Beauchamp conducted with Samuel Goldman, a professor of political theory at George Washington University. It's worth reading in it's entirety, but I particularly like this following segment where Goldman explains why the really angry Tea Party/Trump bloc of the Republican base is so frustrated.

One of the difficulties is what you might call the Trump bloc. I'm using this to refer to a silent majority that isn't a majority and is not particularly silent: whites, generally older, generally less educated, although of course with exemptions for all of those generalizations.

[This group] is a very, very awkward size. It seems to be somewhere between 30 and 40 percent of the electorate, which is big enough that it feels like a majority but small enough that it isn't actually a majority.

That's a very uncomfortable place to be, politically, because smaller groups I think come to appreciate, not immediately but eventually, that they have to compromise and form coalitions. Larger groups can just win.

But this group doesn't seem small enough to compromise or big enough to win. That makes people very angry. I think some of that anger is reflected not just in Trump's campaign but in the sort of rhetoric you see around the rallies. And everyone has seen footage of people who are just hopping mad in a way that I suspect is alien not just to the journalists who cover them but also to movement conservatives who have claimed to speak for them in the past.

Goldman discusses this same theme elsewhere in the interview, referring to "the story of a minority that thinks it's a majority."

I think we can do a lot with this basic insight. For starters, it really illuminates the problems John Boehner encountered as Speaker, where he kept trying to explain to both his own caucus and to the party base that they simply couldn't impose their will on the president because they didn't have the votes. He simply was not believed. It seemed like even the suggestion was like waving a red cape in front of a bull, and it didn't matter if they had a hundred thousand votes to repeal ObamaCare or only several dozen, the point would not be received or accepted.

Maybe the underlying problem wasn't so much that people were ignorant of parliamentary rules and procedure or the separation of powers. Maybe the root of this conflict, which ultimately doomed both Boehner and his underboss Cantor, is that the base of the party is too big to realize that it has no choice but to compromise.

Cops Call In Bomb Squad Called Because Box of Cookies Had Arabic Writing On It "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

arabic-cookies

Bigotry is alive and well in the United States. In case you thought Islamaphobia was on the decline (you didn’t think that did you?), this latest case of xenophobic, racist hysteria proves otherwise.

Khushbu Shah, writing for Mic.com notes that on Monday, “police were called to a gas station near East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania, when a customer panicked at the sight of a box with Arabic lettering on it, WNEP-TV reported.

The supposedly suspicious box turned out to just be a box of Halwani Bros Maamoul Date Filled Cookies — something easily purchased on Amazon.”

That’s right. The box was just cookies. The box said it was just cookies. But it had Arabic on it – a language spoken by 420 million people who are not terrorists.

While the cookie box did feature some Arabic script, it also featured plenty of words written in English, according to an image on Twitter. The label clearly states in English that the package contains “date filled cookies.”

Still, the call resulted in the arrival of three police cars and the bomb squad unit to the gas station. The gas station and a nearby nursery were also shut down.

The only “bombs” the box contained were sugar bombs. Authorities told WNEP-TV that no charges would be filed — because really, the only disturbing thing about the cookies is maybe the price tag. (According to Amazon, a box of 12 cookies costs $10.99, which works out to nearly $1 per cookie.)

While the incident took place just days after the explosion in New York City, leaving nearby areas on high alert, calling in a bomb squad over Arabic script is an Islamaphobic act. It’s similar to having people kicked off of a plane for receiving a text in Arabic, a language that is spoken by over a million Americans.

These shortbread-like cookies are well known in Middle Eastern cultures, and often eaten daily in many families, and most often during Christian, Jewish and Islamic holidays.

Defend the Strike: Anti-Prison Action and Support After September 9th "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

Originally posted to It’s Going Down

One thing is not in question: September 9th is now officially the largest prison work strike ever to take place within the United States.

This strike against prison slavery that began on September 9th, the 45th Anniversary of the Attica Prison uprising has now entered it’s third week. According to organizers with Support Prisoner Resistance:

As of 9/21 we have tracked 46 prisons and jails that experienced some kind of disruption between September 8 and 21st. This total includes both lockdowns reported by officials (some of whom deny that the lockdown was protest related) and reports of protests from prisoners and supporters (some of which did not lead to lockdowns or full strikes).

Of these, 31 facilities experienced a lock-down, suspension or full strike for at least 24 hours. Those 31 facilities house approximately 57,000 people. That is a guess at the minimum number of prisoners affected by the nationally coordinated strike.

There is likely much more going on behind the prison gates that we do not yet know about. We receive new information on a daily basis. In some places the strike lasted a day or a weekend, but in some, it seems to be going strong 12 days in.

The strike has also grown out of the original expectations of many organizers. For instance, the strike has spread into both men and women’s prisons, into county jails, and has lead to not only work strikes, but hunger strikes, organized marches and protests inside facilities, expanded communication of prisoners to the outside, and full fledged uprisings. Despite a media blackout that is fueled by the advertising of corporations that make billions from prison slavery while the mainstream press drones on about politicians which vow to only expand it – the strike is only continuing and bringing more people into our networks.

On the outside, thousands of people took to the streets. In Durham, NC and Brooklyn, NY, freeways were blocked. In Oakland, corporations profiting from prison labor were attacked. In Portland, streets and stores profiting from prison labor were occupied and shut down. In Austin, people shut down a facility showcasing products made by prisoners, and demonstrations, marches, and rallies were organized throughout the South. Across the US, noise demonstrations outside of prisons were organized, marches were held, and graffiti, banners, and posters were placed around the walls, freeways, and towns and cities of the US. Across the world, people also took action in solidarity with the prison strike. From Serbia to Sweden, Greece to Australia, Mexico to Spain, people released statements of solidarity, held demonstrations outside of prisons, and took action against corporations that profit from prison slavery.

What September 9th Shows Us

September 9th didn’t come out of nowhere, but it is simply the latest and largest step forward in a long struggle against prison slavery that has already included riots at Holman prison, work strikes in Alabama and Texas, hunger strikes in Wisconsin and Ohio, and much more. The prison strike shows us the power of building relationships and organizing in a physical movement that pushes forward as well as grows and expands along with the changing terrain. In other words, we aren’t just waiting for something to pop off, but we also aren’t afraid to engage with eruptions of revolt when they come. Instead, getting organized, forming relationshi...

REVEALED: Russia Contacted US Twice to Stop Coalition’s Massacre of Syrian Army Troops "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

21st Century Wire says…

On Saturday Sept 17, 2016, some of the world witnessed an egregious event which has nudged the world closer to a dangerous World War. That morning, we learned how the US ‘Coalition’ launched a brutal air attack which killed at least 70 soldiers and wounded 100 others.  

Washington claimed that this airstrike was a “mistake” and that it was somehow meant to target ISIS near the eastern city of Deir el-Zour in Syria. It was a sustained attack that lasted for 1 hour, featuring repeated bombing runs by US, UK, Australian and Danish aircraft.

us-airstrike-syria

More interestingly, after the US took out the Syrian Military, ISIS then came down from the hills and advanced to a better strategic position closer to Deir el-Zour. The following are excerpts from an interview with Syrian army survivors:

“We first thought the aircraft are support to us after the first 2 shots, but we quickly found out that they are targeting our forces aggressively, while we were fighting IS terrorists. The aircraft used cluster bombs against us.”

“A day before the airstrikes, the drones were flying and scanning all the area”

“The US airstikes destroyed all our equipment and defense points.

“IS fighters attacked us immediately after and during the US strikes. Some of them were laughing. US drones and helicopters opened fire from machine guns on our retreated forces

“It is for sure wasn’t not a mistake, they targeted us intentionally, to help IS.”

Make of that what you will, but US Coalition claims of an “errant strike” ring hollow in the face of mounting facts to the contrary…

RT

The Russian military tried to contact its US counterparts twice to warn them they were launching airstrikes against Syrian government forces before they were eventually halted, a senior US spokesman has revealed.

Col. John J. Thomas, a spokesman for US Central Command, told reporters at the Pentagon that about half an hour into the airstrikes, which were being undertaken by US-led coalition warplanes on September 17, the coalition air operations center (CAOC) received a call from a Russian officer.

The officer asked to speak to the designated contact, but that person was away from the phone. The Russians called back and the representative took the phone call. In less than 5 minutes, “the call to knock it off was put in place and the attacks ceased,” according to Thomas.

However, the damage had been done, as 62 Syrian government soldiers had been killed by the airstrikes near Deir...

Houston: Whites Lives Matter Exposed as Neo-Nazi Front; to Protest ADL October 1st "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

Submitted to It’s Going Down

On October 1st, White Lives Matter, a Neo-Nazi group with ties to the National Socialist Movement (NSM) and the Traditionalist Worker Party (TWP), will hold another demonstration, must likely again with arms, at the Anti-Defamation League in Houston from 11 AM to 4 PM, located at 4635 Southwest Fwy, Houston, Texas 77027. View facebook event here.

Several weeks ago, White Lives Matter held a protest in front of another empty building on a Saturday at the NAACP office which is detailed in this report here. The Neo-Nazis were protected by the police and divided from the residents of the 3rd Ward, largely African-American, by metal barricades. They held signs which said, “14 words,” a reference to David Lane, a member of the Neo-Nazi terrorist group, The Order. This demonstration was proceeded by several similar protests in Dallas, and represent an escalation of organizing by Neo-Nazis and white nationalists.

Looking through the collection of people that are organizing and attending the rally, we clearly see that those promoting the event in Houston on October 1st are members of the Neo-Nazi movement. These fascists offer nothing to anyone; be they white, black, or brown. They promote an authoritarian dictatorship based around racist visions of biology, and are willing to use extreme violence to create a fascist “ethno-state.”

Already in attendance to the event on the 1st are members of other organizations, such as the National Socialist Movement and the Traditionalist Worker Party, and both groups have pushed to form the Aryan Nationalist Alliance, a confederation of white power groups that includes racist skinheads such as the Aryan Terror Brigade. The NSM itself is one of the largest Neo-Nazi groups in the US and openly flies swastika flags and the TWP is attempting to mainstream these ideas through Trump’s campaign  and with openly working with the Patriot and militia movements.

White Lives Matter also comes out of an online group called the Aryan Renaissance Society, which is a Facebook forum that is used by many of the people that you will see below. ARS is very upfront about their Neo-Nazi ideals, while WLM is not. Like most far-Right forums, its features people posting swastikas and memes, and also pictures from their actions. Many ARS/WLM members are also active in an online group called ADL Exposed, which is a coming together of anti-Semitic conspiracy theories and white supremacist ideology. One thing is clear: White Lives Matter is not a group without ideology our outside organizational direction, but a front for Neo-Nazism.

Trudeau’s pipeline remark puts focus on Pacific Northwest LNG project "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

$7B TransCanada pipeline would move natural gas to B.C. coast for export to Asia

By John Paul Tasker, CBC News, September 24, 2016

“The Great Bear rainforest is no place for a crude oil pipeline and I haven’t changed my opinion on that.”

That was Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s specific response to a question this week about the proposed Enbridge-backed Northern Gateway pipeline through B.C.’s north.

In opposition, his comments about pipelines moving through this part of the province were less precise. Trudeau did not include the words “crude oil” in earlier declarations, as he did twice on Tuesday.

prince-rupert-gas-transmission-mapThat phrase would suggest Trudeau isn’t necessarily opposed to all pipelines through the largest intact temperate rainforest in the world, just those carrying diluted bitumen from the oilsands.

Trudeau’s cabinet is facing an Oct. 2 deadline to make a decision on another proposed pipeline in the sensitive region, the Pacific Northwest project natural gas pipeline.

That proposed $7-billion pipeline, which will be built, owned and run by TransCanada, will move natural gas from Fort Saint John near the Alberta border — partially through the same Great Bear rainforest as Northern Gateway — to Port Edward on the coast, to be liquefied for export to Asia.

B.C. Premier Christy Clark has a lot riding on approval of the project, which she has called “the largest private-sector investment ever in Canadian history,” promising 4,500 construction jobs and 330 operational jobs. Federal support for her preferred pipeline could give her an incentive to support Kinder Morgan’s expansion of the Trans Mountain crude pipeline, and allay concerns she has raised about financial benefits for B.C.

The deadline also comes amid mounting pressure from the opposition Conservatives to help the struggling energy sector.

MP Jason Kenney, who is departing Ottawa to take a run at Alberta politics, neatly summed up the grievances Conservatives have with the Liberal approach to pipeline politics in the House this week.

“Tens of thousands of Canadian energy workers have lost their jobs. Our economy is losing billions of dollars in wealth because we can’t get our oil to markets. And the Liberals have responded by rolling over on Keystone XL’s veto, shutting down the Northern Gateway pipeline with their tanker ban, adding a politicized delay to the approved Trans Mountain pipeline and letting Liberals like Denis Coderre attack Energy East without a response,” he said in question period.

prince-rupert-gas-transmission-timeline“Enough is enough. When will this government stand up for energy workers, for Canadian jobs, and the Canadian economy?”

Witness Who Was Set to Testify Against NYPD Cop Is Brutally Killed "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

This man was brutally murdered before being able to testify against a New York City police officer accused of working with a violent drug crew.

Robert Bishun, 36, was found strangled in the back of his BMW in the Fieldston section of the Bronx, N.Y., Tuesday after being abducted from his auto body shop, according to Veronica Graves of The Root.

Bishun was set to testify against Merlin Alston, a police officer who was charged with narcotic conspiracy and accused of being a helper, driver and shotgun-wielding bodyguard for 4 years.

NY Daily News also reports that another cooperating witness set to testify against Alston had his house shot up.

Graves also notes that federal prosecutors from the Southern District of New York said that Bishun’s death was ordered by Alston.

Although Alston’s attorney, Bradley Henry, argued that there was no evidence linking Bishun’s death to Alston, his bail was revoked and he was ordered remanded to custody.

According to the New York City Police Department, Alston’s wife is also an officer and she remains suspended pending the outcome of his criminal case.

Hopefully there will be a real investigation into the murder of this witness. Too often it happens that witnesses are killed before testifying against dirty government employees and there is no legitimate resolution to the crimes.

Native American First Nations Have Protected and Enhanced the Forest Over 13,000 Years of Habitation "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

native-protesters-forest

Human habitation has seemingly had a negative impact on Earth’s ecosystems but a new study suggests not all Human habitations are negative.

According to the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) we’re destroying about 77 square miles (200 square kilometres) of forest daily thanks to decisions that the land should be used for parking lots and strip malls. But the coastal First Nations tribe like the Coast Salish, Tinglit and Chinook who had lived on the coast of British Columbia, 13,000 years of repeated occupation has had the opposite effect of modern Human settlement. Temperate rainforest productivity had been enhanced and not hampered according to research by the University of Waterloo.

“It’s incredible that in a time when so much research is showing us the negative legacies people leave behind, here is the opposite story,” said study leader Andrew Trant, a professor in the Faculty of Environment at the University of Waterloo. “These forests are thriving from the relationship with coastal First Nations. For more than 13,000 years –500 generations — people have been transforming this landscape. So this area that at first glance seems pristine and wild is actually highly modified and enhanced as a result of human behaviour.”

15 former habitation sites in the Hakai Lúxvbálís Conservancy on Calvert and Hecate Islands selected ecological and archaeological processes comparing forest productivity. Researchers found that trees growing at former habitation sites are taller, wider and healthier than those in the surrounding forest. It has something to do with an excess of shells and controlled use of fire.

For thousands of years, the inter-tidal diet of coastal First Nation people created shell middens, more or less a heap of shells, some of them 15 feet deep and covering a massive area of the forest. Some of the shells were used for terracing and others were discarded. As time went on, the shell brought inland decomposed and spread marine-derived nutrients and the careful use of fire had helped the forest through increased soil pH, vital nutrients and soil drainage.

The authors of the study concluded: “Ecosystems with a history of extensive human use through commercial logging, development or other forms of contemporary resource extraction are often considered degraded and disturbed. Here we offer alternative consequences of extensive and long-term human management in coastal areas.”

“It is clear that coastal First Nations people have developed practices that enhanced nutrient-limited ecosystems,” they add, “making the environment that supported them even more productive.”

One thing modern people seem to forget is that for 10’s of thousands of years humans lived symbiotically with the Earth. These First Nation knew how to enhance their environment and not deplete it to extinction to support a “Way of Life.”

We also have to study and catalogue these techniques before they are lost forever to the brutal onslaught of so-called Progress makes us forget that we lived with as friends, not enemies.

After Tricking Public Into Thinking He Stopped DAPL Obama Just Gave The Green Light To Dakota Access Pipeline Company To Build Two More Pipelines On Native Land "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

obama-dapl

While the temporary halting of construction on the Dakota Access Pipeline  by the Obama Administration looks like a tentative success for Native protesters and  climate activists- Obama has given the green light for two pipelines to Mexico to be constructed by the very same company in charge of the DAPL.

DeSmog: a “source for accurate, fact based information regarding global warming misinformation campaigns” reports:

Ever heard of the Obama Administration’s U.S.-Mexico Energy Business Council? We reveal its members and industry connections in this new investigation, plus detail some pipeline projects you may not have heard about.

As reported by Steve Horn of DeSmog:

On September 9, the Obama administration revoked authorization for construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL) on federally controlled lands and asked the pipeline’s owners, led by Energy Transfer Partners, to voluntarily halt construction on adjacent areas at the center of protests by Native Americans and supporters.

However, at the same time the pipeline and protests surrounding it were galvanizing an international swell of solidarity with the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe and its Sacred Stone Camp, another federal move on two key pipelines has flown under the radar.

In May, the federal government quietly approved permits for two Texas pipelines — the Trans-Pecos and Comanche Trail Pipelines — also owned by Energy Transfer Partners. This action and related moves will ensure that U.S. fracked gas will be flooding the energy grid in Mexico.

The Dakota Access Pipeline is also set to carry oil obtained via hydraulic fracturing (“fracking”), but in the northern U.S., from North Dakota’s Bakken Shale Formation through several Great Plains states to Illinois.

Within a two-week span in May 2016, as the Sacred Stone Camp was getting off the ground as the center of protests, the U.S.Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) issued presidential permits for the Trans-Pecos and Comanche Trail Pipelines. Together, the pipelines will take natural gas obtained from fracking in Texas’ Permian Basin and ship it in different directions across the U.S.-Mexico border, with both starting at the Waha Oil Field.

Similar to the case of Nort...

It wasn’t that long ago that George Soros openly admitted that for his One World Government to rise, Western society (aka America) must fall. 

With Soros being Hillary’s largest donor, as well as a long time ally, it came as no shock to many of us when Wikileaks revealed that Soros had been giving Hillary her marching orders directly by email. Just to be clear as to what that signifies: Soros is bent on the destruction of the United States politically. Hillary is Soros’ puppet, so as previously mentioned, a vote for Hillary is a vote in favor of the destruction of the United States.

Graffiti In Solidarity With Charlotte "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

From Conflict MN

The death of yet another unarmed black man at the hands of police and yet another city that has exploded in anger. It has become almost routine at this point. It is quite frankly fucking sad that this keeps happening. It is exhausting to have to see the same old cycle we’ve sadly grown so used to since Ferguson play itself out over and over again. It breaks our hearts to see a loving father taken from his family so callously by the pigs. But I digress.

In solidarity with the brave fighters in the streets of Charlotte standing up against both the police and the national guard and also in solidarity with prison rebels who continue to strike against white supremacy and prison slavery that a small but definitely visible action was taken. “All cops are bastards” was painted on a wall facing one of the busiest streets in Minneapolis just before rush hour. It is the hope of those who did this action that those who hate the police and their violence, their jails, and their prisons were affirmed in their beliefs and reminded that they are not alone and that those who lick the boots of the police state felt a little unsafe for once in their fucking lives. Solidarity with all who resist!

21st Century Wire
REPORT

When it comes to Syria, the level of disinformation fraud from US Coalition-aligned agencies shows no sign of diminishing. Once more, the West is attempting to produce an open and shut case of  humanitarian law violation, with which to further demonize the nations of both Syria and Russia. This, in turn, will enable them to escalate hostilities on the ground in Syria and invoke the much sought after ‘No Fly Zone’ which will be used to facilitate full spectrum destablization and a NATO bombing of Syria into the oblivion of a Libya-style failed state.

Last Saturday saw one of the most shocking and incendiary international incidents of this NATO war against Syria – a US-led, one hour-long airstrike which massacred 70 Syrian Army soldiers and wounded 100 others near the city of Deir al-Zour. The US claimed they were targeting ISIS.  However, the US brutal attack on the Syrian Army provided cover for an ISIS advance into Syrian Army held territory.

Just 48 hours later, new reports then began to circulate through the western media about an attack on a UN-sponsored Aid Convoy.  It is alleged that 18 of the 31 reported trucks were bringing “food relief ” from UN stores, said to be managed by Syrian Arab Red Crescent (SARC), to the town of Urm al-Kubra, west of Aleppo.  This is an area controlled by one terrorist group, US backed Nour al-din al-Zenki and surrounded by US/NATO supported Al Nusra Front.

Putin: ‘Russia Could Wipe Out the U.S. in Less Than Half An Hour’ (Video) "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

putin

President of Russia Vladimir Putin has claimed that he could destroy America easily if he wanted.

Those who have been paying any attention to politics know that Putin is a potential danger not only to Russia itself but also to America. Jokes have been made about how Putin banned memes of himself, and how the American people ought to be sharing them anyway. While these jokes are all in good fun, it is important to realize that Putin is limiting his people’s right to speak. This can be very dangerous and is often the first step of a dictatorship.

The fear has risen slightly since Putin made the claim that he could destroy America in less than a half hour. Putin and the American president, Barack Obama, have a current relationship that seems amicable but is unstable at best.

Putin took personal offense at America’s plan to build a missile defense system. He believed that this was a betrayal of his trust.

The KKK Has Infiltrated U.S. Police Departments for Decades "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

Initiates in suits marching together up Stone Mountain along with members of the Ku Klux Klan for the initiation ceremony.

During the Civil Rights movement, one of the KKK’s first orders was to infiltrate police departments around the country.

In 1991, a neo-Nazi white supremacist gang was terrorizing the streets of Lynwood in Los Angeles County. The reason these violent thugs could run amok was because they were deputies at the Lynwood Sheriff’s station, having the power of blue privilege.

A federal judge acknowledged that the gang of deputies carried out “systematic acts of shooting, killing, brutality, terrorism, house-trashing and other acts of lawlessness and wanton abuse of power.”

These maniacs were not the sudden appearance of a unique group of individuals among law enforcement, but the progeny of a decades-long effort by the Ku Klux Klan (KKK) to infiltrate police departments wherever possible.

That’s why it is so difficult to believe the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) when it said on Tuesday that there was no racial profiling in any of the 1,365 allegations leveled against the department from 2012 to 2014.

“I don’t think anybody believes that there are actually no incidents of biased policing,” said Matt Johnson, president of the Police Commission panel. “The problem is we don’t have an effective way of really adjudicating the issue.”

“While no doubt the vast majority of LAPD officers do not engage in biased policing, it strains credibility to suggest that … there were zero instances of biased policing,” said commissioner Robert Saltzman. “It should not be surprising that there is diminished trust in the LAPD given these results.”

The LAPD seems to think that the influence of neo-Nazi, white supremacist groups is a thing of the past.

Florida deputy police chief was exposed as a member of the KKK last year, and no criminal wrongdoing was found as he resigned. In September, a Louisiana police detective was caught in a photo giving a Nazi salute at a KKK rally. An Alabama police officer recently spoke at a League of the South rally.

While the South has been fertile ground for racist groups, the KKK has penetrated many police departments around the country, as evidenced by the Lynwood horror.

Larissa Moore and four of her law school colleagues performed an investigation of unsolved civil rights murders from 1946 to 1969, under a Syracuse University program, and confirmed an ugly truth.

During the Civil Rights movement, one of the KKK’s first orders was to infiltrate police departments, “because the laws don’t apply to them if they are the law,” according to Moore.

This echoes an FBI statement in 2006 that white suprema...

>>Secretary Clinton who was reportedly unconscious and “bleeding profusely.”<<

If an unclassified email leaked by WikiLeaks is any indication, it appears that there may be much more to the story of what happened to Hillary Clinton back in 2012.

We’ve been told that she suffered a concussion… but was that just diplomatic cover for something else?

Bill Clinton himself publicly claimed that her 2012 concussion – supposedly from a simple fall –took a full six months to recover from:

Bill Clinton did more today than defend his wife, Hillary Clinton, from recent accusations leveled by GOP strategist Karl Rove that she suffered brain damage after falling in December 2012.

“They went to all this trouble to say she had staged what was a terrible concussion that required six months of very serious work to get over,” he said. “It’s something she never low-balled with the American people, never tried to pretend it didn’t happen.”

The alleged incident claimed in this story overlapped with Hillary’s admitted illness, concussion and time off from office that precipitated her resignation as Secretary of State less than two months later on February 1, 2013.

Media Blackout: ABC, NBC Still Refuse To Air Single Word About Dakota Access Protests "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

584036_nbc-news

North Dakota — I didn’t want to be right last month when I predicted the media’s blackout of the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL) protests after the blockade first started generating a buzz on social media — but I was.

According to media watchdog Fairness & Accuracy in Reporting (FAIR), ABC and NBC News have yet to broadcast a single mention of the DAPL protests, which have brought the $3.8 billion oil pipeline project at the Sacred Stone Camp in North Dakota to a halt.

FAIR searched the Nexis news database, which tracks media coverage, and found these so-called news outlets haven’t covered the DAPL controversy at all. FAIR noted that by September 7th, “CBS, alone of the three major broadcast news networks, had aired anything on Dakota Access — and that was a lone report on CBS Morning News (9/5/16), amounting to 48 words read at 4 o’clock in the morning.”

CBS has since covered the story several times. Other news outlets that were initially part of the media blackout began covering the DAPL protests only after they went mainstream on social media.

Curiously enough, all of the major broadcasters found time in their busy schedules to treat Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s divorce as top news. How’s that for priorities? Unlike the corporate broadcast media, Anti-Media has consistently covered the #NoDAPL protests. You can find all of our coverage here.

In my August article, I speculated about the reasons for the media blackout — especially considering a fairly similar, albeit inconsequential land dispute at the Malheur Wildlife Refuge in Oregon received non-stop media coverage from every outlet. You can find my conclusions here.

Excessive Use of Force Is Not Always a Bad Cop Issue "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

At WhoWhatWhy, we are well aware that the US has a massive police-brutality problem. The excessive, and often deadly, force used against innocents and low-level criminals is unconscionable — as is the stunning lack of accountability in most such cases.

But understanding this issue takes more than pat assumptions. There are, of course, hundreds of thousands of good cops and they have to make tough decisions every day on how much force to use to protect themselves, their partners and civilians. In a country in which more than a third of all households own a firearm, danger is never far away for cops on the job.

This brief video illustrates some of the deadly situations cops may face on a daily basis.

The Utter HYPOCRISY of Hillary’s Anti-Gun Policies [VIDEO] "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

hillary-angry

hillary-angry

“I really support everything President Obama said he would do through regulation on guns but we’re going to start the very first day and tackle the gun lobby.” – Hillary Clinton on MSNBC, 4/25/16

There are those who believe that the 2016 presidential election is a once in a generation, existential kind of national election. These folks notice all of the dangers we face and worry that depending on how the vote falls this November, we may soon be a very different nation than we’ve been.

I’m not sure I fit on this worrisome boat, but I do believe that our dearest rights and freedoms are in danger today. The Left has developed a fascist streak unlike any we’ve seen previously in American history, and they believe it to be their duty to destroy our liberty… for our own good, of course.

“The Supreme Court is wrong on the Second Amendment. And I am going to make that case every chance I get.” – Hillary Clinton, The Free Beacon, 10/1/15

Into this caustic climate comes the NRA, an organization wholly devoted to defending the 2nd Amendment from the gun-grabbing left.

The NRA believes that, if elected president, Hillary Clinton would do everything in her power to undermine and repeal the 2nd Amendment. Because of this, they are working hard to unmask her as the anti-freedom fascist she really is.

Their latest ad paints a disturbing picture, reminding all Americans what is really at stake in the upcoming election.

This is the second in the “Don’t Let Hillary Leave You Defenseless” series.

The previous ad covered the disgusting hypocrisy of Clinton’s anti-gun position. Here’s a woman who has lived the last 30+ years of her life surrounded by men with firearms, yet she has the audacity to tell law abiding American citizens that they shouldn’t have the right to use the same tool to defend their families?

If it wasn’t such a serious topic, it’d be laughable.

“When it comes to guns, we have just too many guns.”— Hillary Clinton, USA Today, 4/20/2016

In November, you can actively defend the Bill of Rights and the Constitution. All you have to do is vote AGAINST Hillary Clinton.

Mexican Drug Smugglers Find a New Way to Cross the Border "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

fjf0km1hkpx90tl-medium

fjf0km1hkpx90tl-medium

Compressed air cannons are great. By properly employing one, you can launch almost anything, assuming you can generate enough pressure.

We've all seen the Punkin Chunkin--pumpkin launching contests--held at least annually around the United States. These guys (and girls) roll out massive cannons with super long barrels. The longer the barrel, the more speed can be generated and the further the pumpkin will travel. Because of the length of these barrels, the pumpkins can be traveling at 600 mph when exiting the cannon, which results in great distances.

The television show Myth Busters broke the sound barrier using nothing more than a super long air cannon and a ping-pong ball. The guys on Top Gear (the English original - not the crappy new versions) launched several cars using only an air cannon.

Medieval battles might have been more interesting, as the attacking force could have fired projectiles with air cannons, rather than those clunky monstrous trebuchets. It would have been easy to fire over castle walls and a lot more accurate.

Speaking of walls, if Trump gets elected, he better consider building his southern border wall a great deal higher than 20 feet or so. It seems that Mexican drug cartels are employing the same compressed air cannons as the Punkin Chunkin crowd. Maybe that's where they got the idea.

Rather than messing about constructing elaborate tunnel networks or hiring mules to climb over fences, possibly getting nabbed and having the drugs confiscated, smugglers have developed mobile air launchers to just shoot drugs over the border fences to the American side.

Now the Smugglers simply roll up in a pickup truck or van on the Mexican side, stop within a few hundred yards of the border, point and shoot, and away the drugs go.

Mexican authorities have found a few of these mobile launchers abandoned after they've fired off their payload. The latest discovery was a van abandoned within about 200 meters of the border on the Mexican side. It had apparently been stolen in Sonora, Mexico and then modified with a large hole cut in the back of the van's roof. This accommodated a 10 foot long metal tube connected to compressed air canisters inside the van.

As the technology of these launchers has improved, authorities now estimate the launchers may be able to fire drug projectiles at half a mile or more. That's still not great, but it sure beats 500 feet.

It is also estimate...

Media Claims Violent Charlotte Riots Were Actually “Peaceful Protests… Hugging One Another” "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

i85riots

So Charlotte was the latest city to descend into total chaos.

Mobs of people protesting against the shooting of a black man by a black cop spiraled into violent anti-white riots, complete with looting, beatings and a man shot dead.

And yet, how did the media treat the issue?

One side showed the videos underscoring the thin veil between civility and total disorder taking place. They showed the criminality and thuggish tendencies of many of those who showed up.

And the other side – well – pretended that everything was peaceful and loving. And that it was just a “protest”

Literally.

Check out this video by Paul Joseph Watson:

The world is turning towards insanity, and the corporate, mainstream media is content to just keep on whistling, using carefully-chosen politically correct language and framing the issues as if everything is just fine. And that’s even with several credentialed journalists being attack by the crowd. This CNN reporter even get knocked over on camera.

It isn’t fooling anyone, but it does reveal the media for who they are and the role they play in public perception and control.

Egypt Sentenced Coptic Teens to Five Years in Prison for “Defaming Islam,” Escaped to Switzerland "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

Egypt sentenced four Coptic Christian teenagers to five years in prison for “violating Article 98F, Defaming a Revealed (or Heavenly) Religion” (They allegedly posted a video “defaming Islam” on a mobile phone). They were able to escape to Switzerland on asylum via Turkey.

Morning Star News spoke to the teens who fled Egypt in April, and with the help of Christian human rights organizations, lived in a safe house for five months in Istanbul, Turkey. Recently, Switzerland granted them a humanitarian visa “under special circumstances.” One of the teens, Albir Shehata, said,

“In Egypt, no one gets punished for blasphemy against Christians. There was no reason to be treated that way for something that silly. It was all a joke with the teacher. But now it’s a great feeling, because I feel like I have an opportunity for a better life than what I had in Egypt, because in Egypt my future is ruined. In Switzerland I have an opportunity to make up for it.”

Shehata’s friends, Klenton Faragalla, 18, Moller Yasa, 17, and Bassem Younan, 17, who lived in the Al-Nasriyah village of Egypt, created a 32-second video of someone praying and being slit with a knife across his throat. Their teacher recorde...

The Obama administration is at war against America.

Obama Admitted Nearly 1 Million from Muslim-majority Countries from 2009-2014 The data doesn’t include illegals or other categories of so-called immigrants so the number is … significantly more.

A friend of mine who recently took her citizenship oath in NYC said there was a table registering all the new citizens as Democrats (many of the new Americans didn’t speak English and didn’t even know what they were signing). When my friend balked, the Democrat thugs were very aggressive and insistent that she signed. She refused. But I am sure most don’t — they may even think it is required.

Grassley: Rush to Confirm New Citizens Before Election Puts National Security at Risk, Townhall, September 22, 2016:

Yesterday news broke Department of Homeland Security officials are encouraging employees to work expensive overtime hours to push through as many U.S. citizenship applications as possible before the November election.

An internal Obama administration email shows immigration officials may be literally working overtime to swear in as many new “citizen voters” as possible before the Nov. 8 presidential election, a powerful lawmaker charged Thursday.

The email, from a U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services field office chief and part of a chain of correspondence within the agency, urges the unnamed recipient to swear in as many citizens as possible “due to the election year.”

“The Field Office due to the election year needs to process as many of their N-400 cases as possible between now and FY 2016,” reads the email, which was disclosed to FoxNews.com by Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., who chairs the Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs.

“If you have cases in this category or other pending, you are encouraged to take advantage of the OT if you can,” the email continues. “This will be an opportunity to move your pending naturalization cases. If you have not volunteered for OT, please consider and let me know if you are interested.”

What Is Going On In Charlotte Is Far More Important Than Brad Pitt And Angelina Jolie’s Divorce "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

While one of America’s largest cities is being ripped in two, most Americans appear to be far more interested in the drama surrounding Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s divorce.  As Charlotte braces for a third night of rioting and violence, the mainstream media is full of headlines such as “Welp, the Jolie-Pitt Divorce Got Real Depressing Real Fast” and “Even the Dalai Lama has something to say about Brangelina’s divorce."  Yes, the “Brangelina divorce” is an important cultural moment that illustrates our ongoing moral and social decay, but what is going on in Charlotte is far more important.  Trust in our most important institutions is deeply broken, and Americans are increasingly choosing chaos and violence over peaceful discourse.  For a very long time I have been warning that these kinds of riots were coming, and the thin veneer of civilization that we all take for granted every day is starting to rapidly disappear.

There had been hope that things would settle down after the first couple of nights of chaos in Charlotte, but as I write this article protesters have already massed downtown despite a midnight curfew imposed by Mayor Jennifer Roberts…

Demonstrators chanted “release the tape” while briefly blocking an intersection near Bank of America headquarters in the heart of the city’s business district. They then continued marching as police officers watched. Members of the National Guard carrying rifles were also deployed in front of office buildings to head off another night of violence in this city on edge.

Mayor Jennifer Roberts has signed a curfew order from midnight until 6 a.m., despite Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Chief Kerr Putney saying he saw no need for a curfew.

Personally, I can definitely understand why a curfew was imposed.  Nobody should want to see a repeat of the senseless violence of the past two nights.  At one point on Wednesday night, enraged protesters actually attempted to toss a news photographer into a roaring fire

Among the many reports of violence from the Charlotte, North Carolina unrest Wednesday night was one particular shocking example: rioters tried to throw a news photographer into a burning fire.

Local CW affiliate WCCB was on the scene and tweeted out images of the fire and their initial report.

Canadian School Refuses to Allow Gay-Straight Alliances in Defiance of Government "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

school-billboard-target-of-lgbtq-graffiti1

school-billboard-target-of-lgbtq-graffiti1

There is not much that Canadian schools are doing that leftist do not want in our school systems. They are open and encouraging to sodomy. They are run entirely by secular humanists. They are dependent on outside funding.

Most of these things are true in America, but there is still some control at the local level and money from county residents is still a large part of our schools' budget. But, this is the direction we are headed. So when we hear about a freedom of religion conflict in Canadian schools, Americans should pay attention.

There is one happening right now.

Christian News reports:

A Canadian pastor is standing firm after being ordered to allow gay-straight alliances to be formed at his Christian schools.

According to reports, on Sept. 2, Alberta Education Minister David Eggen sent a letter to Brian Coldwell, the chairman of the Independent Baptist Christian Education Society and pastor of New Testament Baptist Church, to demand that he allow the alliances at his two schools as per provincial law.

Coldwell runs Meadows Baptist Academy and Harvest Baptist Academy
in Parkland County.

Now, I am very glad that Coldwell is willing to take a stand against this ungodliness. I do not wish to sound as if I am not praying that he wins this fight. But, he has caused most of his own problems. You see, his schools have taken government money. Of course, they want to determine how their money is spent. And they may be soon asking for their money back.

Christian News continues:

Eggen has now launched a formal inquiry into the Independent Baptist Christian Education Society. He said that the society could possibly lose its charter or the $2.5 million in funding it receives from the government.

Hopefully, Coldwell will be able to write them a check and stay open. At any rate, this, I hope, teaches this school and others like it that it is not wise to allow Caesar or his money in your school.

Puerto Ricans in the Dark As Debt-Saddled Gov Loses Power: “Not Prepared For Something Like This” "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

DCF 1.0

DCF 1.0

What would happen if the government was so broke that it couldn’t even afford to maintain the basics – including keeping the electricity on?

That’s essentially what’s happened in debt-ridden and poorly-managed Puerto Rico, where a fire took hold at a power plant, and left more than 3 million people without power.

There are many SHTF situations, and many of them center around societal or governmental collapse, but few people in the United States know what that looks like.

But it happens regularly enough that there are examples in the Commonwealth protectorate of Puerto Rico, and in Venezuela, just to name a couple of examples.

When conditions are dim, there is no money to maintain the infrastructure, and it opens the system up to the inevitable – problems are going to crop up, and without a good system in place, are likely to cause major problems.

In fact, Puerto Rico’s problems have been decades in the making.

via USA Today:

The vast majority of Puerto Ricans were without power Thursday after an enormous fire at an electrical plant left most of the island’s 3.5 million people without electricity.

Power is slowing being restored across the island, and the entire system should be back to normal on Friday.

[…]

“This is a very serious event,” Puerto Rico Gov. Alejandro Garcia Padilla said of the outage. “The system is not designed to withstand a failure of this magnitude. I assume complete responsibility. Everyone knows that the company’s maintenance problems began decades ago.”

The power company in Puerto Rico is in some serious debt – totaling over $9 billion. The only realistic solution to the island-protectorate’s money problems has come in the form of another U.S. taxpayer bailout… which would surely prove unpopular, but nonetheless, hasn’t happened yet.

Puerto Rico’s leaders have tried in vain to hold together the pieces, despite crumbling infrastructure and immense debt that they have no reasonable way of repaying. via ABC News:

Tawon Boyd, 21 was acting “crazy” according to Boyd’s Girlfriend who alerted Police around 3 AM to their NE Baltimore home. According to Police reports, Boyd was “confused and paranoid” and “sweating heavily.” Before police arrived Boyd was screaming about someone being inside of his home and pounded on his neighbor’s door. He also tried to enter several police cruisers as they arrived to back up police.

Tawon Boyd refused commands to lie down with his hands behind his back. Boyd fought Police up to five minutes. One Police Officer admitted to striking Boyd in the face twice to keep his hands off of him, Then the officers restrained him with their arms and legs. Medical examiners had yet to release an official cause of death Wednesday. I none of the officers wore a body camera, Baltimore County police spokeswoman Elise Armacost told Baltimore station WJZ-TV.Armacost described the encounter as “ripping off their badges and ripping off the cords to their radios.”

“And not only that, one police officer got his arm around him like this, punching him. And then throughout the whole thing, he’s like, ‘I can’t breathe.’”

According to the family’s lawyer, Latoya Francis-Williams. was black, stood 5 feet 5 inches tall and weighed 150 pounds.

Police treated Tawon Boyd’s mental episode as a personal affront to their dignity and dealt with him as such. Not like professionals. American police are hardly educated enough to get a cat out of a tree let alone deal with someone who is obviously sick.

Police cannot have a few months of training and most of that being tactical training. A lot of police don’t have education and if they do it’s irrelevant to Policing. Someone who is educated in mental health could have helped him or at least had enough compassion not to beat him to death.

It does not matter if Tawon Boyd Ripped off Badges and grabbed a neck, that does not mean its a death sentence. Touching Police is not a death sentence and it’s time they learned that lesson before someone dies for being mentally ill.

“Morning Joe”: Who Cares If Terence Crutcher Had PCP? I Wouldn’t Get Shot Over “Pounds of Coke” "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

maxresdefault-1

Conservative MSNBC host Joe Scarborough stated that no one should care if Terence Crutcher had PCP in his car. Scarborough also stated that he himself would not be shot for pounds of cocaine. If this former Republican US congressmen to understand and now speak out against these senseless murders being committed by the police, how much longer will it take for the Republican base to absorb, digest and comprehend that black lives truly do matter and that the police are killing more black people now than during Jim Crow.

As RawStory reported:

The “Morning Joe” host said the videotaped killing was one of the clearest examples yet of racist policing that Black Lives Matter and other groups have tried to push back against.

“There’s just no explanation for it,” said Scarborough, the former Republican congressman. “It’s not like Ferguson, where we have to talk to a lot of different witnesses. It’s not even like Freddie Gray in Baltimore. We have eyes in the sky over that and we see exactly what’s happening.”

“We’ve been going over this a lot,” Scarborough said. “Two things bare minimum have to happen on a state and national level. No. 1, body cameras on every cop. We need to see what was happening on ground level, and if the camera is disabled at the time of a killing, then the burden of proof is on the cop to explain why his or her body cam was not working, and secondly, you have to have independent prosecutors looking at this from outside the districts from where these shootings occur. Those are two basic steps. They would go a long way in stopping these trends.”

Scarborough has stated that this is systematic and a nation level issue. He is advocating for body cameras on every cop nationwide. To get rid of this ” body camera turned off ” defense, Scarborough recommended that in those instances the burden of proof should be on officers and the departments to explain just why their cameras are malfunctioning.  This would be a great step in the direction of ensuring senseless murders by police slow, and hopefully end.

“The Justice Department should step in and need to take control of this,” Scarborough said. “This is a problem that North Carolina can’t say, ‘Hey, this is particular to our state.’ It’s nationwide.”

Scarborough and his panelists didn’t understand why police would shoot Crutcher for having drugs in his car, as they have alleged, saying that just wouldn’t happen to white drivers.

“If you’re white, if you’re from the neighborhoods that we live in, and your arms are in the air, you could have, like, pounds of coke in the back and be straight out of ‘Miami Vice’ and you wouldn’t get treated like that,” Scarborough said.

The double standard is clear. In America you can be white and place your hand on, or draw a weapon on police and survive. But black pre-teens and teens in Ohi...

Justin Trudeau, Christy Clark, We Are Idiot! "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

mi-bc-130426-clancy-lng3

Breaking.....September 23/2016....Federal Government set to nix Petronas..

http://www.reuters.com/article/us-canada-petronas-lng-idUSKCN11T2MM

Flowery words, gentle tone, grandiose optimistic future visions opined in Paris by Justin Trudeau....

But on the ground  in Canada, policy, regulation, captured regulators and cowtowing to industrial giants continue as if Stephen Harper was still running the show....Full steam ahead..

I had such great expectations for Justin Trudeau, he talked during the 2015 Federal election of a "new relationship" with First Nations, Justin talked of  "regulatory reforms" and a "new NEB process, one the public could have confidence in"...

I can picture Justin Trudeau in election ads hiking the Grouse grind, kayaking and recently pictures appeared of Justin holidaying at one of British Columbia's most beautiful locations, Vancouver Island's Long Beach....

And what about business acumen, do we in Canada possess none?..or should I say, are Canada's political leaders idiots, mentally challenged or outright criminals acting on behalf of themselves, feathering beds, in search of future directorships on corporate boards...it must be true, how else can one explain the actions of a one Christy Clark and of Justin Trudeau...

The former, word salad chef and vocabulary butcher Christy Clark...Site C dam boondoggle, the power isn't needed, won't be needed, the cost is astronomical, we are looking at $15 billion dollars by the time the numbers are added up...and..

If one asks Christy Clark what the Site C Dam power is needed for ....the answer forthcoming is gibberish, and constantly changing...who can keep track of Christy Clark's myriad of answers...First Christy claimed site C power was "needed to power an new LNG industry"...yet LNG liquefaction terminals don't use electricity to power their plants, they use natural gas, secondly, LNG majors won't pay for the cost of Site C power, they will accept free electricity from British Columbia...yet the power isn't free, residential rates are set to skyrocket even higher to pay for this power generating boondoggle...

 any LNG terminal built, IF, would be located hundreds of miles away from Site C, ..major transmission lines would be a must to make that happen....who pays for that?


Christy Clark has refused to have the project vetted by the BCUC or by other reputable sources, why?

Because the project won't stand up to scrutiny or a business profitability case, or a need-based case...

Now, as Christy Clark's LNG fantasy fades to black the story changes, Clark says   "Site C Dam will get Alberta off of coal power generation"    yet Alberta won't pay for the over-priced Site C power and Christy Clark wants the federal Government to pay for a transmission line from Site C to the Alberta power grid....

A major transmission line would have to be built to make that Alberta energy deal happen

Then Christy Clark changes her tune again..."Site C energy will be used to electrify the northern BC gas fields"

Analyzing information in the age of disinformation "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

Analyzing information in the age of disinformation

by Jon Rappoport

September 24, 2016

My “ordeal by fire” came in 1987, while I was writing my first book, AIDS INC.

I had dozens of sources telling me contradictory stories about HIV, what HIV really was and wasn’t; and that was just the beginning of the AIDS information/opinion flooding in from all quarters.

I had to find a way to judge all these data. I had to separate value from non-value. I had to discover a few bottom lines that would serve as context, against which I could make judgments.

When the dust cleared, I knew I had reached a high point. I knew I was launched. Never again would serious disinformation and misinformation cook my brain.

Since then, I’ve made extensive notes on “analyzing information in the age of disinformation”—which happens to be the title of one section of my collection, Power Outside The Matrix.


power outside the matrix


Here are the contents of Power Outside The Matrix:

These are audio presentations. 55 total hours.

* Analyzing Information in the Age of Disinformation (11.5-hours)

* Writer’s Tutorial (8.5-hours)

* Power Outside The Matrix and The Invention of New Reality (6.5-hours)

Then you will receive the following audio presentations I have previously done:

* The Third Philosophy of Imagination (1-hour)

* The Infinite Imagination (3-hours)

* The Mass Projection of Events (1.5-hours)

* The Decentralization of Power (1.5-hours)

* Creating the Future (6-hours)

* Pictures of Reality (6-hours)

* The Real History of America (2-hours)

* Corporations: The New Gods (7.5-hours)

I have included an additional bonus section:

* The complete text (331 pages) of AIDS INC., the book that exposed a conspiracy of scientific fraud deep within the medical research establishment. The book has become a sought-after item, since its publication in 1988. It contains material about viruses, medical testing, and the invention of disease that is, now and in the future, vital to our understanding of phony epidemics arising in our midst (and how to analyze them). I assure you, the revelations in the book will surprise you; they cut much deeper and are more subtle than “virus made in a lab” scenarios.

* A 2-hour radio interview I did on AIDS in Dec 1987 with host Roy Tuckman on KPFK in Los Angeles, California.

* My book, The Secret Behind Secret Societies

(All the audio presentations are mp3 files and the books are pdf files. You download the files upon purchase. You’ll receive an email with a link to the entire collection.)

At the core of consciousness, there are two impulses in the individual. The first is: give in, surrender. The second is: express power without limit.

One Step Away From Collapse, Are You Prepared? "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

CSS-Offical-New-Logo2

 

banking-collapse

 

Can the banks withstand one more false flag event? The economy is hanging on by a thread. False flag events may no longer matter to the economic health of the nation. Last year the S&P downgraded Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan and six other major financial institutions and nobody even noticed. Here comes another bailout, but it is not going to matter. This is the pyramid of power in the US. The game is over. Your money will soon be gone. However, if you need more convincing, please read on.

The Economy Is In Free Fall

The next false flag event will likely collapse this fragile economy, if not a cyber attack upon the banks will do quite nicely. When this happens, food will not be shipped to your neighborhood grocery store. The American economy will come to a complete standstill. Economic collapse is imminent. The Baltic Dry Index, is below 500, an all-time low. This is the end!

Michael Snyder just wrote an excellent analysis related to the true state of the economy. He was quite clear and convincing in his presentation that America is already in free-fall. Every economic indicator says the economy is collapsing like a house of cards except for the Stock Market. When the Stock Market crashes, that will be the final straw. Oil has crashed as it is now selling for less than $40 a barrel. Further, Snyder writes that the cash is being sucked out of the economy. Available cash on hand is at an all-time low. America is like the punch-drunk boxer that is ready to take a tumble with the slightest amount of pressure.

There Are None So Blind As Those Who Will Not See

I feel like it’s the Monday before Black Tuesday in 1929. I know that many of you have family members who think you are insane to suggest that your bank could fail. My heart breaks for many of my fellow Americans who will never know what hit them.

Despite several and multiple warnings coming from both this publication and dozens of others that the crash of the U.S. economy could come at any time, some people continue to go through life as if nothing is wrong.

ANOTHER KNOWN WOLF? NYC Bombing Suspect Probed by FBI, Leading to Bigger Questions "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

nyc-b-2016-21wire-slider
Shawn Helton
21st Century Wire

The New York bombing attack has a list of details that don’t add up.

When examining what transpired this past week in New York and New Jersey, we must consider a deeper social engineering agenda that may be at play – as part of a larger geopolitical drama continues unfold in Syria.

While August ushered in a hyper-propagandized war image that went viral in the West, September delivered an alleged active-shooter ‘false alarm’ played out at both JFK airport and LAX as well as the apparent bombings in New York City and New Jersey this past week.

obama-un

As bombs go off outside, Obama sails through the UNGA.

You have to wonder, were the events in New York and New Jersey also a weapon of mass distraction, following a major international embarrassment for the United States both at home and abroad – the brutal airstrike campaign in Syria that killed over 70 Syrian troops? This unlikely bombing incident just happened to also coincide with the UN General Assembly in NYC, where President Obama was delivering among other speeches, his “War on Terror” addresses to the international community. No surprise then, with the city suddenly on ‘high terror alert’ – that Obama quickly and confidently and comfortably used his center stage spotlight at the UN, shifting into ‘national security’ mode – boasting how quickly his police forces solved the case. It was almost if he was ready for events that weekend.

The alleged NYC bombing suspect was named as 28 year-old Ahmad Khan Rahami, who managed the family Chicken Kebab Shop. He has been charged with using ‘weapons of mass destruction’ in addition to other criminal charges. Similar to what was described in the apparent Boston Marathon Bombing of 2013, Rahami is alleged to have created a homemade pressure cooker bomb which exploded in Chelsea, an affluent neighborhood of Manhattan.

Oddly missing are scenes depicting the transport of 31 injured individuals after the explosion in New York.

70% Of Arrested Protesters in Charlotte were from Out of State "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

I am all opposed to senseless killings, including those perpetrated by police officers. I'm also opposed to staged protests, especially when provocateurs come in to "protest" something that is not even happening in their community. It's not being reported that 70% of the people arrested in connection with the protests in Charlotte, North Carolina following the fatal police shooting of Keith Lamont Scott.

CNN's Erin Burnett tweeted the following on Thursday:

Following the governor declaring a state of emergency, Burnett provided the tweet.

Mediaite reported:

While many out-of-state protesters surely believed in furthering the message that America rejects police brutality, it is worth noting that the police sergeant made a distinction between those who were arrested and the real protesters who are specifically going out to represent and defend their city.

The protests began after Scott was shot. A video of what led up to the shooting can be seen here.

Provocateurs are nothing new. When the riots erupted in Ferguson over another shooting, one young man produced a video warning that people were being paid to be provocateurs by government. Take a look.

I don't doubt for one second that there are legitimate protesters who believe the shooting was wrong. However, I think the precedent has been set that there are a plethora of provocateurs that get bussed in from areas outside in order to stir up more trouble. Now, it's in my backyard.

Massive Florida Sinkhole Leaks Corporation’s Radioactive Waste Into Water Supply "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

florida-skinhole

215,000 gallons of radioactive “water” has now leaked into Florida’s main drinking water supply, due to a sinkhole forming under a toxic pond. Sinkholes are fairly common in Florida, but this is no average sinkhole and the mainstream media is ignoring this story. What makes this whole story even worse, is that the EPA was aware of the tainted water and yet they allowed people to bathe, drink and cook with this water.

As Daisy Luther reported:

Because Mosaic, the company responsible for the industrial spill, said “Oh, it’s no big deal,” officials didn’t warn the public. That’s starting to be a trend, isn’t it?

You guys are probably tired of me harping on this, but you cannot trust the government with your family’s health. You need to begin testing your own drinking water and doing so regularly. (Here’s how to do that.) As well, step up your water preparedness game– this is happening way too often to risk not having a supply on hand. At this point, you’d be crazy to rely on the word of the EPA or local officials that your water supply is safe. They are not here to protect you – they’re here to protect corporate interests.

Speaking of corporate interests, it’s important to note that Mosaic paid over $2 BILLION in fines last year for mismanaging hazardous waste. Do you really think we should be taking their word for anything that has the potential to affect the health of the residents of Florida?

Are you surprised that there is yet another water contamination cover up attempt happening? Multiple cities in the Midwest, like Milwaukee, WI, are testing positive for lead in higher concentrations than that of Flint, MI. Now we find out in the past couple days that several areas in the country are testing positive for hexavalent chromium. We have water contamination issues all over the United States.

What do you think we need to do about this? Do you trust the same government that is sweeping these issues under the rug to fix these problems?

12-Year-Old Finds Knife, Turns It In To School, Gets Suspended "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

kid-turned-in-knife

Kyler Davies, a 12 year old Michigan student, found a knife while he was at school. The knife was inside of a used leather case.

He said that his mother had bought it for him at Goodwill, but he did not know it was with him at school. Knowing he had not placed the knife there, he turned it into the school officials.

Davies was suspend for one year for doing the right thing. WWMT news later reported that the school had reduced the suspension to 30 days.

The issue wasn’t just contained to the classroom; it also spilled over on to the football field. Davies tells us the school tried to keep her son from playing football.

“The school told me he could not go on their property, he could not play; he can’t ride the bus with his team because it’s a Coldwater bus,” she said.

We spoke with Coldwater Rocket Football, the organization that runs the local football program. It is independent of the district and tells us the school wanted the rocket program to kick Kyler off the team, but they refused.

So this young boy finds a knife and turns it in, yet he was being punished for doing the right thing. As a parent, If my daughter found a weapon, I would expect her to give it to an adult, and not be punished for her actions. This sets a horrible example for children. It tells them that doing the right thing, isn’t always the right thing. No one expects to be punished for following the rules.

How does this make you feel? Was this child treated fairly? Do you think he will have the same faith in authority moving forward?

CDC issues flu vaccine apology: this year’s vaccine doesn’t work! "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

 

(NaturalNews) The following video from Gary Franchi of NextNewsNetwork reveals the shocking admission by the CDC that this year’s flu vaccine doesn’t work.

From the video:

For the first time we can remember, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention are going on the record, saying the flu vaccine won’t work this year. The warning comes just before the busiest part of flu season, in January and February. Unfortunately, there won’t be any refund for any of the patients or insurance companies who spent money on flu shots earlier this fall.

But don’t worry. Just when you thought perhaps the CDC could boost their credibility, they found a way to put a sales pitch on the end of their warning. The CDC says if you do come down with the flu, there’s a cure. It’s just going to cost more money. Money that will end up profiting pharmaceutical giants, GlaxoSmithKline and Roche. CDC officials are urging doctors to prescribe two specific antiviral medications for any patients who come in with flu symptoms.

Just last week, the CDC issued a warning, prompting Americans to take the flu vaccine if they haven’t already. Health officials said they had 160 million flu shots on the shelves and ready to go. But just earlier this week, Italy launched an official investigation after about a dozen people died within 48 hours of getting the flu shot. Their national health agency issued an immediate warning, saying DON’T take the vaccine. Here in America, the CDC isn’t going that far. In fact, they found a way of turning this failed vaccine into a promotion for yet another big pharma drug.

Here’s the news report view:

 

And here’s an original laboratory research report from Natural News earlier this year. I personally conducted the ICP-MS heavy metals analysis of these flu vaccines and have the raw count data to prove it. Mercury particle counts at atomic masses 200, 201 and 202 were through the roof on these laboratory tests.

Don’t you find it astonishing that it takes a private ICP-MS laboratory with no ties to government funding, universities or the FDA to finally test flu vaccines and report the truth? (To my knowledge, Natural News is the only news organization in the world that owns a cutting-edge private mass spectrometry instrument and uses it for scientific research in the public interest…)

Flashback: Flu vaccines laboratory confirmed to contain crazy high concentrations of mercury
Mercury tests conducted on vaccines at the Natural News Forensic Food Lab have revealed a shockingly high level of toxic mercury in an influenza vaccine (flu shot) made by GlaxoSmithKline (lot #9H2GX). Tests conducted via ICP-MS document mercury in the Flulaval vaccine at a shocking 51 parts per million, or over 25,000 times higher than the maximum contaminant level of inorganic mercury in drinking water set by the EPA.(1)

The tests were conducted via ICP-MS using a 4-point mercury calibration curve for accuracy. Even then, the extremely high level of mercury found...

From looting to hate-filled violent attacks, the situation continues to deteriorate.

In the following video we see a crowd gathered around a fire presumably started by the protesters. According to WCCB’s Twitter report, what we see next is just how far race relations have come under America’s first black President.

The photographer in this case was lucky that law enforcement officers were only a few yards away, otherwise it could have gone a whole lot worse, as it did for this white male who was begging for mercy as a mob of hoodlums beat him:

10 Shocking Facts The U.S. Government Doesn’t Want You To Know "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

10 SHOCKING FACTS THE U.S. GOVERNMENT DOES NOT WANT YOU TO KNOW…

WARNING: SOME OF THESE MAY BE DISTURBING….

1. Almost 1,200 people killed by US cops in 2015.

According to the open-source reporting project Killed by Police, 574 of those who died were minorities, 511 were white, and 107 undetermined.

2. It’s Final — Corn Ethanol Is Of No Use. In 2013 the U.S. used 4.7 billion bushels of corn (40% of the harvest) to produce over 13 billion gallons of ethanol fuel. Source: YES! Magazine

3. More than two-thirds (68.8 percent) of adults are considered to be overweight or obese.More than one-third (35.7 percent) of adults are considered to be obese. More than 1 in 20 (6.3 percent) have extreme obesity. Almost 3 in 4 men (74 percent) are considered to be overweight or obese. (Source)

4. United States is a Federal Corporation.

In 1871, the U.S. Treasury went bankrupt as a result of the Civil War. It sought help from global financiers, such as Rothschild’s of London. Global bankers were eager to buy, and the treasonous Act of 1871 was passed by the 41st Congress. The Constitution was altered, and America was transformed into a Corporation. Today, it’s still a corporation owned and run by central bankers. There is no Federal government, only a Federal corporation. Politicians do not serve “we the people,” they work for Corporate America and no one else. America’s product? You.

The United States of America is a corporation that serves a political system that lacks anything resembling true legitimacy. The political system it serves is a handful of elite families and institutions using crony politicians such as Hillary Clinton to do their bidding. In what is known as the “Act of 1871,” the...

Police responded to a call about an abandoned vehicle in Oklahoma last week and  when they arrived they were met with Terence Crutcher, who’s car stalled on the highway-  now a shocking video has allowed us to be witness to yet another murder of an unarmed Black man at the hands of incompetent and overzealous law enforcement.  The  video shows that Crutcher was following instructions and who police have admitted was unarmed. Though unarmed- he was hastily deemed to be “a bad dude” and apparently that alone was enough to have him tasered, and moments later, officer Betty Shelby shot him dead. Contrary to officer’s accounts- he was not a threat, and he was not reaching into his vehicle when they made the decision to shoot him and leave him to die by bleeding out on the highway.

Robert Mackey of  The Intercept reports:

Graphic video of the fatal shooting on Friday was recorded from two angles by Tulsa Police Department cameras mounted on a police helicopter and a police car.


Speaking to reporters outside the Tulsa County Courthouse on Tuesday afternoon, Benjamin Crump, who is representing the dead man’s family, saidthat a streak of Crutcher’s blood on the glass, visible in a still image taken from the helicopter video, proved that the car window was closed when he was shot.

Crump accused a police department spokesperson, Officer Jeanne Mackenzie, of spreading “misinformation that he caused his own death” when she told reporters on Friday night that Crutcher had prompted the shooting by refusing to raise his hands and reaching into his vehicle.
Finding that initial police account hard to believe, Crutcher’s family had demanded the release of unedited police footage of the incident. The department complied with that request on Monday.

David Riggs, a former state attorney general who chairs the Oklahoma Access to Justice Commission, also addressed a report that the police had found the hallucinogenic drug phencyclidine, or PCP, inside Crutcher’s car after the shooting. Riggs said that the shooting was not justified even if Crutcher was intoxicated. “Not everybody who’s under the influence of something is a threat to other people,” Riggs said.

Cop Who Murdered Unarmed Veteran ON VIDEO Just Found NOT GUILTY "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

cop-shoots-kills-unarmed-homeless-vet
Monroe, LA– On Tuesday, a Ouachita Parish jury somehow returned a verdict of not-guilty for West Monroe police officer Jody LeDoux on charges of negligent homicide. A six-person jury returned the unanimous verdict after less than a single hour of deliberation.

LeDoux plead not guilty at his arraignment on in 2015, for negligent homicide after shooting and killing homeless veteran, Raymond Keith Martinez, 51.

On the evening of December 5, Martinez was attempting to go into a convenience store that he frequented. The store employees would often call the police to have him removed when he would ask people for spare change outside. The owner of the store alleges that on this evening, he told the victim that he could not come inside the store because he was intoxicated.

“He (the store owner) stated that officer got out of the car and told him to get his hands up,” the police report reads. “He stated that he did not hear the suspect say anything and the suspect turned to reach inside the paper machine, at which time the officer shot him. He stated that he did not hear the suspect say anything to the police. He stated that while the suspect was on the ground he observed a black cellphone by his hand.”

Those who knew him described Martinez as harmless. He was someone who wouldn’t hurt a fly- but with a drinking problem stemming from his past.

“He said when he wasn’t drinking he had to remember and he didn’t want to remember. He never bothered anybody,” someone from the neighborhood he stayed in told KTVE.

LeDoux maintained throughout the trial that he had no other options but to kill the unarmed Martinez. And, unfortunately, a police apologist jury bought his words.

“I couldn’t wait any longer,” LeDoux testified on Friday.

“I felt like he was going to shoot me at that point,” said LeDoux referring to the point when the harmless and unarmed Martinez grabbed his cellphone.

As the New Star reports, during his closing statements, defense attorney Michael DuBos told the jury they had the opportunity to stand between a police officer and danger — to help an officer in trouble.

However, as the video below shows, the only person in trouble was Martinez.

The video, which is a composite from two security cameras, shows it was only seconds from when the officer approached Martinez with his weapon drawn until the victim was fatally shot. The man was posing no threat to anyone. The entire clip is only one minute and thirty seconds long.

After he was killed, Martinez was remembered by friends and relatives at his grave site. He was once again described as peaceful and harmless, as mourners expressed their confusion as to why his life was taken.
“He didn’t provoke nobody out of anger, or steal or anything like that. He was loved by everything and everybody. We also know there is a probl...

Ex-Cop Nails CNN’s Police Brutality Apologist: “You Don’t Get To Kill Somebody Just Because You Say You’re Scared” "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

Even after Officer Betty Shelby was charged with first-degree manslaughter, CNN’s chief police apologist continues to defend her for fatally shooting the unarmed Terence Crutcher while his hands were in the air.

According to Travis Gettys of Raw Story, Harry Houck, a law enforcement analyst for CNN, said he didn’t know if there was enough evidence to charge the Tulsa police officer because he hadn’t seen every available piece of information from the fatal encounter.

“I don’t know yet, because I don’t know enough evidence regarding this case,” he said. “If I do a further analysis, when more comes out on the case I’ll take a look at it and I’ll make my own decision based on that. But right now we don’t know enough.”

Another panelist, retired Los Angeles police sergeant Cheryl Dorsey, points out the strange tactics the officer used for someone who is “in fear.”.

“What we do know is that the tactics that led up to this deadly force incident were deplorable,” Dorsey said. “She took herself from a position of cover and concealment, she walked up on someone who she said was scaring her more than she’s ever been scared in her entire life (and) created a situation where now deadly force had to be used.”

“What was it? If you were in fear, why are you running up on him?” she said. “You don’t just get to say, ‘I’m in fear,’ and now olly olly oxen free — you get to kill somebody. Someone failing to comply does not require lethal force.”

Dorsey also suggested Crutcher may have been following police orders when he went to his car. Officers might have asked for something he had to retrieve from his vehicle.

“We don’t know that yet, we don’t know that quite yet,” cautioned Houck, who had previously stated that outrage over this shooting was part of a “war on police.” “This man had his hands up and kept on walking toward his car, there’s no audio.”

Houck said he agreed Shelby’s tactics were poor before backup officers arrived, and he saw no problem with her fear.

“There’s nothing wrong with a police officer being scared for their life,” Houck said. “I’ve been scared many times, and that’s where this thing called courage comes in. We’re supposed to have courage as police officers.”

CNN’s Alisyn Camerota asked Houck what he would have done differently, and he suggested he may have reacted the same way as the officer.

“I don’t know, because I wasn’t right there,” Houck said. “All I know is that that man kept going towards the car and I told him to stop, stop, stop — and he did not stop. And when we got around to the car and it looked like he was reaching into the window for something, was making a furtive move, I don’t know what I would have done, okay?”

Dorsey said officers should act on facts, not on assumptions.

“We now know for a fact, she’d already cleared the car,” Dorsey said. “That means she rendered it safe, that means that there was nothing in that vehicle that was going to hurt her.”

Before Taking Money Out of the Bank, You Must Know These 3 Laws "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

CSS-Offical-New-Logo2

Everybody gets the joke but the American people.

Everybody gets the joke but the American people.

A Bank Holiday is coming and it could be coming much sooner, than later.

Can you find yourself in the above picture? Don’t be “that guy”. These people will end up living under a cardboard box or they will forced to go to a FEMA camp for food and water?

I am going on the recording by predicting that the Federal Reserve will steal your money by faking a cyber attack. In fact, FEMA and DHS actually practiced for this event on October 23rd and 24th of 2013. As I wrote on June 12, the Federal Reserve, the FDIC and the Bank of London practiced for widespread banking failure on November 10, 2014. On November 16, 2014, the G20 nations declared your bank deposits to not be money and they can take it whenever they want. On August 8, 2012, the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that the banks own your money when you deposit your paycheck into the bank.

 


The Most Requested Subject In the History of The Common Sense Show

I have been inundated with requests for more information on how to get your money out of the bank. If you think your money is safe while sitting in the bank, you desperately need to do some investigation. S&P has previously downgraded the 8 major banks in the United States. They are already in a lot of trouble.

There is no doubt that anyone who leaves all of their money in the bank needs their head examined. However, if you walk up to your “friendly” teller  and ask to withdraw all, or most, of your money, you will either be shown the door and/or arrested for violating federal banking laws. Yes, it is now a crime to take your own money out of your own bank account, just ask former Speaker of the House, Dennis Hastert who has been indicted and now convicted for taking HIS money out of HIS bank account.

Even Congressmen Aren’t Safe From the Banksters

Obama’s Muslim Convert CIA Director Admits to Supporting Communist Party "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

obamas-muslim-convert-cia-director-admits-to-supporting-communist-party

obamas-muslim-convert-cia-director-admits-to-supporting-communist-party

Barack Hussein Obama Soetoro Sobarkah's Muslim convert CIA Director John Brennan has admitted to giving his support to the Communist Party in the 1976 election.

Last week, during the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation's annual conference, Brennan admitted that he was asked if he had "ever worked with or for a group that was dedicated to overthrowing the US" during his first polygraph test to enter the Central Intelligence Agency.

"I froze," Brennan said. "This was back in 1980, and I thought back to a previous election where I voted, and I voted for the Communist Party candidate."

Claiming that he believed the Constitution protected free speech, he said he decided to answer truthfully.

"We've all had indiscretions in our past," he said. "I would not be up here if that was disqualifying."

"I froze, because I was getting so close to coming into CIA and said, 'OK, here's the choice, John. You can deny that, and the machine is probably going to go, you know, wacko, or I can acknowledge it and see what happens,'" Brennan said.

The question Brennan was asked came from the 1940 Smith Act, which "prohibit[ed] certain subversive activities," among those were overthrow of the US Government by force or violence. Thus the question that is routinely asked is,
"Have you EVER advocated (either directly or indirectly) the overthrow of any government by force or violence?"

"I said I was neither Democratic nor Republican, but it was my way, as I was going to college, of signaling my unhappiness with the system, and the need for change," Bennan added. "I said I'm not a member of the Communist Party, so the polygrapher looked at me and said, 'OK,' and when I was finished with the polygraph and I left and said, 'Well, I'm screwed.'"

Brennan then attempted to put the people to sleep regarding their freedoms by stating, "So if back in 1980, John Brennan was allowed to say, 'I voted for the Communist Party with Gus Hall' ... and still got through, rest assured that your rights and your expressions and your freedom of speech as Americans is something that's not going to be disqualifying of you as you pursue a career in government."

It's interesting that Mr. Brennan would make such a statement considering the CIA suspended an employee who refused to sign a non-disclosure agreement on Benghazi, wanted to allow Benghazi survivors to talk to Congress, but kept it classified, is known as a bully, and has continued to hel...

Why The Food Movement Is Unstoppable "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

By Jonathan Latham for Independent Science News - In 1381, for the first and only time, the dreaded Tower of London was captured from the King of England. The forces that seized it did not belong to a foreign power; nor were they rebellious workers – they were peasants who went on to behead the Lord Chancellor and the Archbishop of Canterbury who were, after the king, the country’s leading figures. A tad more recently, in the U.S. presidential election of 1892 a radical populist movement campaigned for wealth redistribution and profound economic reform. The populists won five states. All of them were rural.

Congresswoman Maxine Waters reacted to the release of video showing the moments just before Keith Scott was shot to death by Charlotte police.

In the video, Scott’s wife, Rakeyia Scott, can be heard pleading with police not to shoot her husband.

“Don’t shoot him. Don’t shoot him,” she says. “He has no weapon. He has no weapon.”

Police yell again at Mr. Scott: “Drop the gun! Drop the f—ing gun!”

“He doesn’t have a gun,” she says. “He has a T.B.I. [traumatic brain injury]. He’s not going to do anything to you guys. He just took his medicine.”

After commanding Scott to drop the gun several more times, police opened fire, killing Mr. Scott.

After reviewing the video, Rep. Waters said, “I am so upset, watching this video and listening to the cries and pleas of a wife who says he has no weapon and had just taken his medicine.”

Waters also questioned why, since Mr. Scott wasn’t threatening anyone, police had to shoot him.

“Even if they had to sit there and wait it out until she talked him out of the car, why did they have to advance and kill him?” Waters asked.

Waters was then asked about the North Carolina law that prevents the release of dashcam or bodycam video.

“I don’t care what the law says,” Rep. Waters said. “You have a wife who videoed what took place, her husband has been murdered, and if you tell me that she should care about a law that is in place literally to protect police anyway, and that she should not have shown it, I’m with the wife. I don’t care what the law says!”

Black White Wage Gap Worse Than In 1979 "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

As income inequality increases so does the difference in wages between blacks and white

What this report finds: Black-white wage gaps are larger today than they were in 1979, but the increase has not occurred along a straight line. During the early 1980s, rising unemployment, declining unionization, and policies such as the failure to raise the minimum wage and lax enforcement of anti-discrimination laws contributed to the growing black-white wage gap. During the late 1990s, the gap shrank due in part to tighter labor markets, which made discrimination more costly, and increases in the minimum wage. Since 2000 the gap has grown again. As of 2015, relative to the average hourly wages of white men with the same education, experience, metro status, and region of residence, black men make 22.0 percent less, and black women make 34.2 percent less. Black women earn 11.7 percent less than their white female counterparts. The widening gap has not affected everyone equally. Young black women (those with 0 to 10 years of experience) have been hardest hit since 2000.

Why it matters: Though the African American experience is not monolithic, our research reveals that changes in black education levels or other observable factors are not the primary reason the gaps are growing. For example, just completing a bachelor’s degree or more will not reduce the black-white wage gap. Indeed the gaps have expanded most for college graduates. Black male college graduates (both those with just a college degree and those who have gone beyond college) newly entering the workforce started the 1980s with less than a 10 percent disadvantage relative to white college graduates but by 2014 similarly educated new entrants were at a roughly 18 percent deficit.

What it means for policy: Wage gaps are growing primarily because of discrimination (or racial differences in skills or worker characteristics that are unobserved or unmeasured in the data) and growing earnings inequality in general. Thus closing and eliminating the gaps will require intentional and direct action:

Consistently enforce antidiscrimination laws in the hiring, promotion, and pay of women and minority workers. Convene a high-level summit to address why black college graduates start their careers with a sizeable earnings disadvantage. Under the leadership of the Bureau of Labor Statistics, identify the “unobservable measures” that impact the black-white wage gap and devise ways to include them in national surveys. Urge the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission to work with experts to develop metropolitan area measures of discrimination that could be linked to individual records in the federal surveys so that researchers could directly assess the role that local area discrimination plays in the wage setting of African Americans and whites. Address the broader problem of stagnant wages by raising the federal minimum wage, creating new wor......

Reflections on Freedom Square in Chicago and Building Abolitionist Spaces "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

From Let Us Breath Collective and Ill Will Editions

Freedom Square Phases Out Overnight Occupancy after 41 Days of Loving Lawndale & Imagining a World Without Police

On August 31, the sleeping tents at Freedom Square, slowly, sadly came down. The first aid canopy came down. The arts & crafts canopy came down. The free clothing store, free library, and pantry still stand, with some produce ready to throw on the grill. The basil is growing strong in the garden.

Across from Homan Square, the tent city occupation was a spontaneous decision born out of a spectacle of civil disobedience on July 20th. We at the #LetUsBreathe Collective had only six small tents, a grill, a will to love Lawndale beyond shutting down traffic for a couple of hours in front of the notorious CPD black site, and a vision for a world without police. We had no meetings, no budget, no dedicated staff, just a handful of people who were willing to camp out. We didn’t know if we’d hold it through the night, but hoped the goal of opposing ‘Blue Lives Matter’ legislation, calling out the illegal detention and torture happening across the street, and building consciousness for abolitionist politics would garner support. We figured however long we could hold the space, we’d use it as a tool to give out free clothes, free books, free food, and cold water to the community.

What we failed to do early on was implement tangible accountability protocols for ourselves and the community members that came through the space. We posted our Brave Space Agreements, and used them as guidelines for how we treat the space and each other, but we had no concrete mechanism beyond peace circles for handling conflict. And when the children of Freedom Square began asking their parents to camp with us, we welcomed an opportunity to build a village on tenets of political education and artmaking, but we had no structured childcare for what became a 24-hour youth engagement center. Still, a diverse array of workshops —from rumba to zine-making to screenprinting to science to journalism, and so much more— kept them engaged for blocks of time, but the moment to moment cleaning, building, and maintenance of the space stretched organizer capacity to our limits, and we simply could not give kids structured attention every moment of the day.

What we also failed to do was maintain collective vision about the values and operation of the space. We wanted to empower everyone to take ownership of and claim leadership in the space, so folks with all levels of organizing backgrounds (or not) and intersectional analyses (or not) positioned themselves as leaders. #LetUsBreathe values were not always embodied by folks running things, and that strained our relationships with volunteers and community members. And often, it was unclear whether our collective values were really collective at all, because we were all so physically stretched in maintaining the 24-hour occupation that it seemed impossible to get everyone in a circle to meet, talk, refine ideas, and strategize.

Reportback from the Charlotte Uprising "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

Submitted to It’s Going Down

On Tuesday, September 20, 2016, Charlotte Police shot and killed Keith Lamont Scott, a disabled Black man, while he was reading in his truck waiting for his children’s school bus. The very first response from the community was to grieve and call for accountability from the Charlotte Mecklenburg Police (CMPD). The CMPD responded by forcefully disrupted the gathering with officers in full riot gear. This quickly escalated the situation, causing an unplanned and intense riot where protesters took to the streets all night and into the early morning to fight back against the continued police terror and racist system that criminalizes Black people, murders Black people, and continues to get away with it.

Like all across America, Charlotte is in the middle of a process of re-segregation – relegating its black population to worse education, housing, health, and economic prospects, while maintaining this inequality by force: with its police. The city’s history of school re-segregation provides a good insight into this process.  In the early 1970’s Charlotte was considered a model of success unparalleled in a majority of the country for ending segregation in public schools. This success lasted nearly three decades until late 90’s when a white father sued the Charlotte Mecklenburg School system for denying his daughter access to a certain school and the courts sided with the parents.

rt_charlotte_protest_cf_160922_12x5_1600

Today a third of the district’s 168 campuses are segregated by poverty and half are segregated by race. What city officials would call amazing progress, improved community integration over decades, began to unravel between 2002 – 2014 and now Charlotte has become a cautionary tale of a school system disregarding research. The outcome is increased racial and socioeconomic isolation and is indicative of widened inequality in the broader community. Charlotte is experiencing an intensifying in structural racism, which is directly tied to police violence.Fast forward to three years ago: a Charlotte officer shot and killed Jonathan Ferrell, an unarmed black man who was asking for help after his car broke down. The case ended in a hung jury and all requests for a retrial were denied. Another horrifying yet unsurprising case of a system failing an entire race of people and the police murdering black men with impunity. The rising tensions on both a community and national level contributed to the rupture that occurred on Tuesday night and is continuing into the weekend. As of the night of Wednesday, September 21, protests were high energy, emotionally charged, and chaotic. The police attempted to clear the streets, even at the co...

Health Care Costs Rise By Most In 32 Years "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

By Patrick Gillespie for CNN - Prices for medicine, doctor appointments and health insurance rose the most last month since 1984. The price increases come amid a broader debate about climbing health care costs and high premiums for Obamacare coverage. A recent report by Kaiser/HRET Employer Health Benefits forecasts that the average family health care plan will cost $18,142, up 3.4% from 2015. That's faster than wage growth in America.

Americans, So Easily Controlled! "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

“Football, beer... Filled up the horizon of their minds. To keep them in control was not difficult.” George Orwell

One day last week our family went to grab a bite to eat.  We went to Maynards.  We walked in, sat down, looked around and at a quick glance became angry with what we saw.

My family and I have been spent in ministry at every given moment of every given day over the last 20 years in service to God and man (1 John 5:2), and this is the people that we are serving and fighting for? The bar in the restaurant was full of grown men (the majority with their Viking jerseys with the name of their favorite player on their backs), partying it all away while watching the Minnesota Vikings’ game.

It was almost laughable if it were not so shameful (Jeremiah 6:15; 7:10).

A whopping 64,000 people were packed like sardines in the new US Bank Stadium.  Eighty-six percent of these hypocrites that profess to be Christians cannot even name 3 of the 10 commandments (1 John 2:4).

Ticket sales ranged from $75.00 to $901.00 per ticket. As I said, 64,000 people jam packed that stadium, to watch a bunch of grown men, who feel that somehow or another it is a cool and an honorable thing to wear tights while bashing each other’s brains out while fighting over a pig ball (Jeremiah 8:5).

On the bleachers, you have men with their shirts off, painted in purple and yellow with Viking horns on their head giving up all dignity over a game that they will not be able to give you the score from in 3 weeks (Jeremiah 2:28; 11:13).

Somehow, the American people have deceived themselves into thinking that this is normal in a country that is being turned into hell (Psalm 9:17). Maybe they are just having fun, right? They are having fun while their country is being assailed from every front, both from without and from within.

I ask, is it honorable to live for idols while turning your back to those who fought, bled and died to give us the freedoms in which Americans enjoy? What a disgrace and a shame (2 Corinthians 5:15).

This also includes those who watch a man, who has practiced thousands of hours, hit a golf ball with a metal rod into a hole, or grown men hit a baseball with a piece of wood, or a little plastic hockey puck gets hit into a net by a fiberglass stick, or men will entertain themselves out of their blood-bought freedoms by watching cars drive in a circle over 500 times! Wow!

Furthermore, watch these hoodlum commentators, who sound like they are on a double shot of caffeine, react after a team scores. (Video is a must watch to get full effect)

During our family dinner, we also noticed that there were about 30 televisions round around us...

Dave Hodges’ Message to Glenn Beck

 

Glenn Beck was one the pillar of the truth movement. His TV show on Fox News was the most exciting show of its types in TV  history.

Beck confronted everyone from Rockefeller to Obama with an uncommon boldness.

I am not much of a TV watcher, but I used tape everyone of his shows. Then, there was the turning point. Glenn announced he was going to do a show on FEMA camps and it sounded ominous. However, he never did the show and became critical of anyone who saw the issue of FEMA camps as being important

My point for pointing out these things, is not to criticize Glenn Beck, but to encourage him. Glenn Beck is a gifted broadcaster but his support of Ted Cruz, despite all the revelations, was disturbing.

We live in a time of unparalleled horrors. Our future could be filled with hope and promise, or, it could be filled with horror and extreme tragedy. This is the time for all good men to stand up and be counted.

In these troubled times, we need all hands on deck.  Here is my message to Glenn Beck

Audit identifies $2.1M in ‘unexplained payments’ to Alexander First Nation former chief and staff "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

Auditors found past chief Herbert Arcand received $405,119 in unexplained payments, in addition to his salary. (Supplied)

‘It’s a one-sided report to me,’ former chief Herbert Arcand says

By Andrea Huncar, CBC News, September 23, 2016

A “forensic investigation” has identified $2.1 million in “unexplained payments” to a former chief of the Alexander First Nation and seven administrative staff, according to a leaked internal document.

The document says about half of the unexplained amounts, totalling more than $1 million, were paid to former chief Herbert Arcand and current tribal chief administrator Alphonse Arcand.

But both of them dismiss the report’s findings, arguing all the proper documents weren’t submitted to the auditors.

“I dispute this whole report,” Herbert Arcand told CBC in an interview Thursday. “It’s a one-sided report to me. It was a personal attack on certain individuals.”

Those findings are contained in a 49-page report prepared for a powerpoint presentation titled Forensic Investigation: Presentation to Band Membership, which was provided to CBC News. It summarizes an audit conducted earlier this year by accounting firm Meyers Norris Penny.

Auditors scrutinized the financial activities of the former chief and seven administrative staff between 2013 and 2015. The “detailed findings” were presented to the existing band council  on Aug. 4.

Loretta Burnstick, the band’s former interim chief financial officer, said she helped launch the investigation after noticing questionable financial activity.

“It was obvious to many members in the community for years,” said Burnstick. “We did not have the physical proof until this forensic investigation took place to prove it was happening.”

Between 2013 to 2015, the document says Herbert Arcand received $405,119 in unexplained payments, in addition to his “expected salary” of $186,666.

As part of the unexplained amount, a band credit card in his name was used to take out a total of $91,156 at casinos and book an all inclusive-vacation for two relatives at a five-star Jamaican resort then paid off by Alexander First Nation, auditors say.

Payments for ‘extra duties’

According to the document, Alphonse Arcand received $637,920 in unexplained payments, in addition to his expected salary of $280,000. He collected two sums authorized by himself, including $16,462 for “extra duties” plus salary advances of $11,500, yet to be paid back, according to the auditors.

Auditors also say the band made payments to Alphonse Arcand’s personal credit card in 2013 totalling $349,878.

The report cites a variety of examples of inflated salaries, bonuses and expenses amongst the group.

Burnstick, now a finance clerk on stress leave, is one of several people distributing the document to community members. That’s because “they have a right to know where their money is being spent,” she said.

“Our concern is it would have been buried,” she said, adding the distribution of the audit summary is being done at the request of her brother and current Chief Kurt Burnstick.

Chief Burnstick is facing three sexual assault charges and pressure to resign from the community, in Sturgeon County just northwest of Edmonton. But he insists he is innocent and refuses t...

Moral Mondays Movement Goes National "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

By Mark Gruenberg for Workday Minnesota - The “Moral Mondays” movement, which started in North Carolina as protests over the state’s highly restrictive voter ID law, has gone national with “Moral Day of Action” protests in 30 state capitals, Washington, D.C., and other cities around the country. Joined by unionists, civil rights groups, peace groups and other progressive organizations, the demonstrators took to the streets Sept. 12 to demand that politicians and officials commit to a platform of moral causes, including workers’ rights, voting rights, and an end to discrimination by race, sex, gender, disability or other characteristics.

Boy, 12, arrested in Shamattawa fire, but younger kids can’t be charged, police say "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

shamattawa-fire-1Blaze destroyed only grocery store and crippled services in isolated Manitoba community

CBC News, September 23, 2016

A 12-year-old boy has been arrested in connection with a fire that destroyed the only grocery store and the band office in the remote northern Manitoba community of Shamattawa and crippled some of its essential services.

The boy was one of six children who RCMP believe were involved in setting the blaze on Thursday afternoon. The other five children are under 12 and cannot be charged.

A state of emergency was declared in Shamattawa after the fire razed the Northern Store and the band office and damaged the community’s radio station and 911 service.

“It’s very tragic,” Shamattawa Chief Jeffrey Napaokesik told CBC News after RCMP announced the arrest on Friday.

There is no road access to Shamattawa. All food and supplies must be flown into the isolated community, which is about 745 kilometres northeast of Winnipeg.

RCMP say officers from the Shamattawa detachment were called to a fire at the band office around 4 p.m. CT. By the time they arrived, the building — which housed both the band office and the store — was in flames.

Police officers and firefighters battled the blaze as it burned through the night, causing extensive damage to the building, police said in a release Friday.

Napaokesik said people were out of the band office to attend a funeral in the community when the fire was started.

“I suppose a kid slipped into the office, and we’re told that [the child] set one of the sofa chairs on fire,” he said.

“By the time anyone knew, there was smoke in the building and everybody evacuated.”

The 12-year-old has been released on a promise to appear in court. An RCMP spokesperson said the boy will be charged when he makes his first court appearance.

shamattawa-fire-2RCMP say the other five children who they believe were involved in starting the fire cannot be charged because the Youth Criminal Justice Act has set 12 as the minimum age of criminal responsibility. Police could not say how old the children were, except they were all under the age of 12.

Investigators with Manitoba’s Office of the Fire Commissioner is heading to the community on Friday.

Napaokesik said there have been a number of fires in Shamattawa in recent months, and he’s searching for answers about what happened in this case.

“I don’t have an answer for that one. We can only blame ourselves for not keeping things safe and, you know, patrolling the area and things of that nature,” he said.

Food, supplies being flown up

The Canadian Red Cross, which is providing assistance to Shamattawa on behalf of the federal government, loaded a shipment of water, food, infant formula and other supplies onto a Perimeter Aviation flight bound for the community on Friday afternoon.

The Winnipeg-based North West Company, which owns the Northern Store, says it is also sending pallets of food to Shamattawa, working with the Red Cross to co-ordinate flights.

“We’ll be delivering a shipment by air into the community that should arrive this afternoon and that will include staple food products … water, infant formula, some fruit and vegetables,” Derek Reimer, the North West Company’s director of business development, said Friday morning.

“We are looking at ab...

Worker wins stolen wages after 4 years "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

Hard work is supposed to pay, right? Well, it didn’t for Jon Ozols. Jon, a WAC member, was working in a restaurant in downtown Toronto when he realized he wasn’t being paid fairly. He was making the student minimum wage, even though he wasn’t one. When Jon stood up for his rights he got fired. His boss made it clear that she had no intention of paying the $878.96 he was entitled to and tried to intimidate him with threats of legal action.

Determined to get justice, Jon fought back. He filed a claim with the Ministry of Labour and was hopeful that this case of wage-theft would not go unpunished. He knew his rights as a worker, and believed the government would step in and offer protection. What he didn’t anticipate was having to borrow money from friends to cover rent. It took nearly nine months for the ministry to confirm his claim, and an additional three years to get his wages.

Jon isn’t alone. Since 2009, the Ministry of Labour has NOT been able to collect $28 million out of $47.5 million stolen from workers. Meanwhile, less than 0.2% of bosses found guilty have been prosecuted.

After “winning” his claim at the Ministry, but still not seeing a single cent of the money he was owed for two years, Jon spoke to the Toronto Star. Overlooking his boss’ threats, he shared his story publicly to warn other workers and expose the lack of enforcement. Last month, a week after the third time Toronto Star reported on Jon’s story, he finally received his wages. Jon is incredibly happy that he won, however having to wait 4 years to get his badly needed wages is unacceptable. He is now more determined than ever to ensure stronger enforcement of our labour laws so that no one has to experience what he went through. Jon, like many others, wants to see proactive enforcement and real consequences for bosses who break the law.

We are inspired by Jon’s determination and bravery. He is an incredible Workers’ Action Centre leader who is fighting for a $15 minimum wage and fair working conditions. The Ontario government is currently reviewing all our labour laws and now is the perfect time for all of us to raise our voices. Join us on Saturday October 1st at Queen’s Park to call on our elected officials to ensure decent work for all. Bring your family and friends – we’re meeting at 12:00 pm (noon) at the Northwest corner of University Avenue and College Street, click here to RSVP and share on Facebook.

Turkey Decides To Expand Erdogan’s Ottoman Caliphate Into Syria And Iraq Instead of Fight ISIS "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

There is nothing better than hearing it from the horse’s mouth when it comes to something we have argued for weeks when we repeatedly stated that Turkey’s invasion of northern Syria is not, will not, and plans not to destroy ISIS, but plans to use it. Now one official newspaper of the Turkish mouth, Daily Sabah, just published a statement from Turkish Minister of Defense Fikri Işik:

“Turkish Minister of Defense Fikri Işik said to the media today on Wednesday that Turkey does not intend to use any ground troops in its military operations in Northern Syria against ISIS and other terror organizations. It will currently be satisfied by using and supporting the Free Syrian Army.”

ds1-copy

So much for all the hoopla about how Russia was bad and why it should leave Syria while Turkey was good, since it plans on destroying ISIS.

Turkey announced plans to create a safe zone in Syria the size of the Grand Canyon, a campaign that could be one of the biggest foreign military intervention in its modern history.

Turkey’s goal “is likely to require the deployment of thousands of Turkish soldiers in Syria for years and increase risks of a possible military confrontation with Syrian forces,” Nihat Ali Ozcan, a strategist at the Economic Policy Research Foundation in Ankara, said.

The Turkish military, which entered Syria last month to supposedly push ISIS, simply sandwiched the Kurdish separatists from the border area between them and ISIS, creating a pincer.

Replacing The U.S. Dollar with an SDR Note “Remains the Overriding Vision” "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

an-election-wont-stop-the-dollar-collapse1

an-election-wont-stop-the-dollar-collapse1

The Epoch Times recently published their follow up to the G20 Meeting held in early September in China. It is interesting to note how their reporting dramatically differs from the typical Western media reporting. Had a person followed only Western media outlets for reporting on the G20 meeting, one would have come away with the sense the only thing accomplished was Obama and Russian President Putin facing off in a stare down that looked like two boxers about to go toe-to-toe.

In an article The Daily Coin published, we clearly stated that the meetings that would take place on the “sidelines” would be where the real meetings would determine the next step(s) in the currently unfolding monetary shift. The Federal Reserve Note (U.S. dollar) is now on the chopping block of history. While the axe has not been lowered, it is certainly being sharpened. China has made it clear there is going to be a change, and “the United States had to go along with the Chinese because they hold a large portion of the U.S. government debt.” I have heard it said before – the debtor is the slave to the creditor and the master determines the fate of slave.

“Behind the scenes, the system preparations have been made to the international monetary system which will allow us to introduce the SDR as one of the world’s reserve currencies, as a world reserve currency which could become and replace the dollar.”

He [Willem Middlekoop] thinks the United States had to go along with the Chinese because they hold a large portion of the U.S. government debt. This does not mean, however, that the dollar will become meaningless in the near future, as it is still the most important currency within the SDR basket.

“Adding the Chinese yuan to the SDR is a great way for the United States to stay in control. The U.S. dollar is still more than 42 percent of the SDR, even after Oct 1. So this is a solution which is acceptable for both the Chinese and the Americans. Even Putin can agree with this. By upgrading the SDR the United States will become less important, but it will still be the leading currency. Both Russia and China understand the need for the dollar for the foreseeable future.” Source

Small changes along the way make for one big change at the end of the line. The people that believe the U.S. dollar is going to crash and burn overnight are missing the point of these communiques’ from the IMF, BIS, and World Bank. What is happening right now is that the people that are making policy changes are putting int...

EXCLUSIVE VIDEO RELEASED: Moments Leading Up to Charlotte Shooting of Keith Scott "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

f_raw_scott_shooting_160923

“He doesn’t have a gun… don’t shoot him!” Footage taken by Keith Scott’s wife shows the moments leading up to the fatal police shooting of her husband… and it’s just as bad as many of us knew it would be.

A cellphone camera video made by the wife of Keith L. Scott before he was fatally shot by police shows the tragic moments that were before and immediately after the incident. These moments include the wife’s pleas to her husband to get out of his truck, as well as her pleas to the police to not shoot him.

The video was given to the New York Times by attorneys for the family Friday, as well as to other sources, including NBC and alternative media like Counter Current News does not include a view of the shooting itself.

The video does not show that Mr. Scott had a gun, as the police have maintained.

The New York Times reports:

Justin Bamberg, who, along with Eduardo Curry, is representing the family, said in an interview Friday that the video did not prove that the shooting was either justified or unjustified. Rather, he said, it offered “another vantage point” of the incident. He said he hoped the Police Department would release is own videos of the shooting, as protesters have been demanding since it took place Tuesday afternoon.

The lawyers said the cellphone video was shot by Rakeyia Scott, Mr. Scott’s wife on Tuesday afternoon. Mr. Scott had parked his car in a visitor’s space in their apartment complex, where he often waited for one of his children to return home on a bus. The police were there to serve a warrant on someone else.

The lawyers said Ms. Scott had come out of the apartment with a cellphone charger for her husband and noticed that police officers were around the truck.

The two-minute-and-12 second video starts out with shaking images that only recorded grass and the voice, apparently of a police officer, who can be heard shouting, “Hands Up!”

City officials have still refused to release their police video of the shooting. They say they “do not want to impede their investigation.”

In the video an officer can be heard saying “hands up” which he clearly complied with. The victim’s wife, Rakeyia Scott responds “Don’t shoot him. Don’t shoot him. He has no weapon. He has no weapon. Don’t shoot him.”

Amazon Defends Its Pricing Algorithm, But Leaves Out Billions in Sales "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

Earlier this week, we reported how Amazon often makes its products look like better deals than they actually are. When the website ranks products by price that are available from Amazon and other sellers, the company excludes the cost of shipping only on the products sold by Amazon and vendors that pay the company.

Amazon has long described itself as “Earth’s most customer-centric company.” But it declined to answer our questions about why the detailed Amazon’s product rankings excluded shipping costs only for itself and its paid partners.

A few hours after we published our story, we got a new statement from Amazon:

With Prime and Super Saver Shipping (which requires no membership and ships orders above $49 for free), the vast majority of our items ordered – 9 out of 10 – can ship for free. The sorting algorithms the article refers to are designed for that 90% of items ordered, where shipping costs do not apply.

Our story noted that the prices Amazon shows are ranked correctly for those who pay for Prime or buy enough to be eligible for free shipping. But the new statement is interesting for two reasons.

Amazon Says It Puts Customers First. But Its Pricing Algorithm Doesn’t.

Amazon bills itself as “Earth’s most customer-centric company.” Yet its algorithm is hiding the best deal from many customers. Read the story.

Assuming the figures from the company’s statement are correct, that means buyers are not being given a clear picture of prices on 10 percent of items sold. Since Amazon books more $100 billion in annual revenue, that likely adds up to billions of dollars in sales where customers are not shown the best deal.

The other interesting thing is that Amazon’s statement says its “sorting algorithm” is designed to be relevant only to orders where “shipping costs do not apply.” Amazon’s own website appears to contradict that. Here’s how Amazon describes how it ranks products among multiple vendors: “The default sort order of the offer listing is ascending Price + Shipping.”

We just asked Amazon about that, and a spokesman responded, “There is no disparity. Offers are listed in ascending order, Price + Shipping, and where shipping can be free, either through Prime or Super Saver Shipping, that offer is listed accordingly.”

Julia Angwin contributed reporting to this story.

Clinton Haiti Scandal Explodes: Former Senate President Makes Baribery Accusation and Leaked Emails Show Corruption! "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

hillary_clinton

hillary_clinton

How about two whole new scandals for the Clinton Family and their foundation?

We’ve already heard about the Clinton foundation’s Haiti corruption over the last few weeks. The foundation was caught promising to help the people of Haiti, and instead used the money to line their own corrupt pockets.

Now there are two new scandals for Hillary Clinton to answer for…

First, the former president of the Haitian Senate, Bernard Sansaricq, dropped a bombshell during a recent Donald Trump campaign event. Mr. Sansaricq told Mr. Trump that he had the documentation to prove that the Clintons tried to bribe him in an effort to get his support for the Clinton foundation’s work to defraud the people of Haiti.

Sansaricq explained that he became president of the Senate in 1994, a year during which the Clinton presidency attempted to oust the oppressive military regime in Haiti by threat of invasion.

Sansaricq said that in order to try to “appease” him at the time, Clinton sent Bill Richardson, a former U.S. Representative of New Mexico.

A week later, the American embassy sent an anonymous messenger back to Sansaricq, who allegedly told him that if he “sided” with Bill Clinton in the invasion, he would become “the richest man in Haiti.”

Sansaricq said he declined the offer because he “loves [his] country.” He added that a week later, by executive order, President Clinton revoked his visa.

Attempting to bribe a foreign politician who also says that her foundation defrauded his people of BILLIONS of dollars would be a pretty serious charge for most people, but for Hillary Clinton, it’s just a Monday.

The second potential scandal that is percolating as we start the week also focuses on the Clintons' bribing Haitian politicians. However, this co...

ESPN’s Nate Silver, who famously – and wrongly – declared Donald Trump had little chance of winning the GOP nomination, is now warming up to the possibility that Trump will win the presidential election.

Even more interesting, even the left-wing Huffington Post published an extensive “obituary” for Hillary’s campaign listing nine reasons why she’s losing. Ironically they are blaming the mainstream media.

Cop Who Fatally Shot Innocent Man Who Had Hands Up FINALLY Arrested and Charged "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

video__learning_more_about_officer_betty_0_6108646_ver1-0_640_360

Officer Betty Shelby, the Tulsa officer who on September 16, shot and killed Terence Crutcher as he walked away from her with his hands up, has been officially charged with first degree manslaughter.

On September 16, Shelby was en route to a domestic violence call when she saw Crutcher’s vehicle broken down in the middle of the street. While there is no video of the initial contact, (because Shelby’s dash camera only records when the police lights are activated) there is video from a helicopter, and a dash camera that captures the moments leading up to Officer Shelby shooting Terence as he had his hands in the air.

It is important to know that police are trained to follow certain protocols and policies. For instance, an officer responding to a 911 call of a kitten stuck in a tree can deter from that call if they come across someone in need of medical attention, or they witness a felony crime in progress. And vice versa, if an officer is responding to a violent domestic violence and they see a car abandoned in the middle of the road, they should stop, makes sure everyone is alive, call it in, and respond to the priority, the domestic violence incident.

Officer Shelby has defended her actions claiming that she fired at Crutcher when he walked away from her and began reaching in his SUV.


Video of incident synched

The affidavit references two important points to comment on.
1. Shelby had already cleared the car of weapons prior to shooting Crutcher. Even if Crutcher was near his car, there was no reason Shelby to believe she in was danger.
2. Another responding officer informed Shelby that he has a taser ready for deployment. Officers are hypothetically supposed to use whatever force necessary to overcome a situation. With a taser present, Shelby knew there were other “less lethal” options and opted to use deadly force.

You can read the affidavit here.

The public release of videos of the shooting, and the subsequent arrest of Shelby hails in contrast to the Charlotte-Mecklenberg Police Department’s handling of the killing of Keith Lamont Scott who was shot and killed by police on September 12 as he was reading a book, waiting for his son to come home from school according to his family.

Bring up “Trump-Putin” relations in the debates next Monday and Trump should bring up Hillary’s three secret ‘love affairs’ with major Muslim Brotherhood operatives while he makes the case for his complement of Putin. This will be long (7000 words), detailed and loaded with documents, translated links, packed with evidence on Hillary’s affairs with Muslim Brotherhood operatives who intend to destroy us from within. It must be circulated and carefully studied.

But before we disclose all the juicy details, there is no question, the issue of Donald Trump complementing Russia’s President Putin will come up during the debate. If I was Trump I would remind Hillary Clinton once compared Putin with Hitler. Lets compare and see who better qualifies to win the ‘Hitler award’. Hillary is one who does not mind putting evil Hitler to good use, so long it advances another evil: Hillary.

Trump complemented Putin, sure, but should her photo here be misconstrued as “Hillary meeting with Hitler”? Had Jesus been here, in our times, a photo of His temptation will definitely be misconstrued as “God’s secret pact with the devil”. Even God’s testing of Job via Lucifer will be considered history’s great conspiracy. History always gets twisted by politicians and slanderers. But it is only History that will eventually set the record straight regarding the truth.

19 not-angry students "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

By Steve Brawner
© 2016 by Steve Brawner Communications, Inc.

All adults have been 18 once, but most of us have not been 18 in 2016. There’s a difference, which I kept in mind as I spoke to 19 freshmen taking part in a special leadership course at the University of Arkansas at Fort Smith last week. 

The students were there because the university’s chancellor, Dr. Paul Beran, believes they’re future leaders, and for some reason he thought I might have something to say to them. So I encouraged them not to get mad. Proverbs 22:24 says, “Make no friendship with an angry man,” so don’t be that angry man. 

Thankfully, that message turned out to be merely a warning, not a scolding, because I didn’t see a lot of anger in that room. I don’t spend much time around 18-year-olds, but I was struck by this bunch’s youthful optimism and positive outlooks. One student named Kelsey completely disagreed with one of my comments, but in the most respectful way possible. Maybe she was simply showing deference to her elder, but while her eyes were passionate, they were not unkind or condemning.

Gosh, I hope she stays that way.

I choose to believe that those young people looked cheerful and optimistic because they really are cheerful and optimistic. So the question becomes, why them and not so many of us? 

Part of it’s just being young, of course. It just feels better than being older, physically. 

But 18-year-old future leaders also lack two bad habits that many of the rest of us have developed – the media we consume, and the things on which we focus.

These young people watch the news some, but that’s about it. They have things to do, tests to study for, friends to hang out with, and future mates to seek. So they’re not going to spend three hours listening to a news anchor or talk radio host yell about the latest manufactured controversy. Plus, young people simply don’t get their news that way, thank goodness. They get their news in bite-sized chunks and move on.

The other thing I suspect about these students is that they spend more time in the “circle of influence” than they do in the “circle of concern.” Those are two illustrations by the late Dr. Stephen Covey, author of “The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People.” The circle of concern is a big circle involving all of the things we worry about. Contained within is the smaller circle of influence, which involves what we can actually affect. 

Our attention should be focused on the circle of influence, but as adults it can be very tempting to wallow in the circle of concern. The word “ruminant” refers to animals such as cows that chew their food, swallow it, and return it to their mouth to chew it again. Too many of us adults spend too much time ruminating about things we can’t control, like this year’s presidential race. We internalize it, spit it back up and then chew on it some more, this time mixed with bile. The students at UAFS seemed to be following the race, and many seemed to share in the widespread disappointment with this year’s choices. But maybe because they have other things to do – things they can influence, like the next test – they aren’t ruminating on it.

The late comedian George Burns used to sing, “I wish I was 18 again and going where I’ve never been. But old folks and old oaks standing tall just pretend. I wish I was 18 again.” 

Until someone invents a time machine, that wish won’t come true – which means it never will, because if it were possible to travel back in time, we would have already met someone from the future. Still, even old folks and old oaks can recapture some youthful optimism by turning off the TV and focusing less on what we can’t change, and more on what we can.

Cops Refuse To Charge Driver Who Plowed Through Michigan Students Protesting “Leave n*****s” Graffiti "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

An SUV driver was questioned but NOT charged after plowing through a group of students protesting racist graffiti at Eastern Michigan University.

According to Travis Gettys of Raw Story, Staff members discovered the messages, scrawled in red, white and blue spray paint, on Tuesday at Julia Anne King Hall and alerted the university’s department of public safety.

The vandals spray-painted “KKK” and the words “leave n*****s” inside the building.

The university president, James Smith, condemned the message and said there would be an investigation.

Gettys says a group of about 150 students gathered at 5 p.m. at Welch Hall and then marched toward the university president’s home, temporarily blocking a street near an intersection in Ypsilanti.

Video evidence shows the SUV drive through the group of protesters and then accelerate past them.

The student protesters scream in fear and the vehicle drives through their group and speeds away. Witnesses said no injuries were reported. The SUV did hit a motorcycle during the incident, so that could have easily been hit and run charges.

A witness said the driver was a woman, and deputies said they later questioned the driver but did not file any charges.

Police would not release any information on the driver or why they chose not to charge her.

A spokesman for the Washtenaw County sheriff’s office pointed out that some of the graffiti protesters had also participated in the past in Black Lives Matter protests.

Gettys also notes, “University of Tennessee law professor Glenn Reynolds, a conservative blogger and newspaper columnist, was briefly suspended from Twitter on Thursday after urging vehicular violence the night before against black protesters in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Demonstrators blocked Interstate 85 on Wednesday as part of protests against the police shooting of Keith Lamont Scott, and Reynolds, known as Instapundit, tweeted, “Run them down.”

USA Today, which publishes his columns twice a week, suspended Reynolds for one month.

The university is also investigating Reynolds’ “irresponsible use of his platform.””

It is unknown at this point if the driver was inspired by the law professor’s suggestion to “Run them down.” It is also unknown why officers chose to let the driver off with no charges after she drove through a crowd of people and sped away after hitting a motorcycle.

Cop Forced Teen To Perform Oral Sex On Himself And His Partner, Keeps Law Enforcement Certification "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

mint

Thanks to Douglas County Attorney Don Kleine, this man will be able to exit jail, obtain another job in law enforcement.

Omaha, Nebraska (TFC) – A cop took a deal in relation to charges of sexually assaulting a teenage girl and will not receive a felony conviction, will not have to register as a sex offender, will only serve a year in jail, and still currently has his law enforcement certification.

The rapist cop used a small amount of marijuana found during a traffic stop to extort a young lady into performing sexual acts. The officer made her boyfriend walk down to a nearby lake and wait for him to finish assaulting the girl. The former deputy, Cory Cooper, is 31 years old. The victim is 19.

The plea deal means he won’t have to go to trial on the charge of first-degree sexual assault. That was a felony that could have landed him in prison for twenty-five years. Instead, he’ll go to a jail where he knows the staff and will be protected from other inmates who would typically provide some form of real justice in a case like this. He will still be able to possess a firearm. There is nothing prohibiting him from being a police officer again after he serves the time for his minor crimes. In fact, he still has his law enforcement certification, even though that is expected to be stripped eventually.

Don’t worry though, he’ll be able to requalify for law enforcement work soon because he doesn’t have a felony record. Thanks to Douglas County Attorney Don Kleine, this man will be able to exit jail, obtain another job in law enforcement, and force another teenage girl to perform oral sex on him soon.

This is the American justice system. If you wonder why people riot, if you wonder why people celebrate when cops are killed, if you wonder why law enforcement in the United States is no longer respected and is viewed as an enemy of the people; remember the name Cory Cooper. It might be wise to remember the name of the prosecutor that protected the thin blue line as well. That name is Don Kleine.

Sunlight’s work uncovering superdelegate lobbyists featured on 'Full Frontal with Samantha Bee' "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

Sunlight has finally made it big on basic cable: Our investigative work tracking lobbyist superdelegates at the Democratic National Convention was featured on "Full Frontal with Samantha Bee!"

There are 712 so-called voting superdelegates composed of former and current elected officials as well as members of the Democratic National Committee. Superdelegates can support whomever they choose and are not bound by any primary or caucus result. And, as we found in our report, some of the superdelegates also happen to be lobbyists for special interests.

We chatted with the Full Frontal team beforehand to talk about our findings and point to a few of the most interesting lobbyist superdelegates, including Andres Ramirez, a superdelegate from Nevada. From our July 28 report: “According to disclosure documents from the Nevada legislature, as recently as 2015 Ramirez represented a company called Community Loans of America Inc., which is the parent company of several payday and title loan lenders.”

Bee had a lengthy, awkward and pointedly funny conversation with Ramirez about his role as a lobbyist who also is a superdelegate, which you can watch above.

Obama Boom Builds Obamatowns "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

owens092216

According to the megaphones of the Progressive-controlled media, the Obama economy is booming.  For the investor class, it has been a rising tide that lifts all yachts or as it is expressed in Bloomberg, “When President Barack Obama was elected in November 2008, the U.S. economy was shrinking at a rate unmatched since World War II. In the seven years between then and his final State of the Union address Tuesday night, global investors have enjoyed stellar results from the rapidly expanding Obama economy.”

According to Paul Krugman in The Obama Boom, “The ... Obama economy offers a powerful lesson... From a conservative point of view, Mr. Obama did everything wrong, afflicting the comfortable (slightly) and comforting the afflicted (a lot), and nothing bad happened. We can, it turns out, make our society better after all.”

And according to President Obama himself, everything is coming up roses: “Companies are investing; consumers are spending and American manufacturing, energy, technology, autos all are booming. And thanks to the decisions that we've made and the resilience of the American people, we've recovered faster and come farther from the recession than almost any other advanced country on earth. So the good news is the economy clearly is getting stronger, things are getting better, engines are revving a little bit louder.”

A chicken in every pot, a car in every garage, a flat screen in every living room, a cell phone in every hand, and a check in every mail box.  Ah yes, haven’t we heard all this for years, while anyone who works knows that wages have been stagnant for years.  Anyone who does their own shopping knows food prices have gone through the roof.  And anyone who has lost their job through the destruction of America’s manufacturing knows that a part time job at the Kwiki Mart doesn’t replace a full time job with benefits.

The political class, their pet economists, and the fellow-travelers among the media may trumpet that the Obama economy is booming.  They may tell us we must all troop like mind numb robots to the polls and make sure Hillary has the opportunity to give us a third term to complete the transfor...

If you still had any doubts as to why the 2nd Amendment must be protected, and why self defense must be respected as the priority that it is, then just take a look at what happened during the already insane riots taking place in Charlotte.

Despite large cadres of riot cops on scene and North Carolina’s Gov. McCrory declaring of a state of emergency and calling in the National Guard, no one was able to protect the dozens of innocent bystanders who were beaten, attacked, intimidated and knocked over just because of the color of their skin or the fact that they ended up in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Numerous individuals and several journalists were targeted for physical attacks after the protest devolved into riots. At least one white man was dragged into a parking garage and beaten. One of the protesters was shot. Rocks and other objects were thrown, and the entire thing got out of control.

There’s little doubt that the authorities wanted to maintain order, but it wasn’t possible. And people got hurt.

But one person who wasn’t hurt by the violent and temporarily insane mob in downtown Charlotte was this guy:

While it is true that he brandished the weapon illegally according to North Carolina laws, when it came down to a confrontation with the mob, this guy got respect where others caught up in the scene did not.

Despite being angry at the world and lashing out at just about everyone, these protesters respected only those who were prepared to defend themselves.

Here is what...

Who is behind the riots? Charlotte police says 70% of arrested protesters had out of state IDs "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

Confirming what many had suspected when viewing the sudden and intense collapse into anrchy that occurred in Charlotte this week, Todd Walther, spokesman for the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Fraternal Order of Police told CNN’s Erin Burnett:

“This is not Charlotte that’s out here.  These are outside entities that are coming in and causing these problems. These are not protestors, these are criminals.

“We’ve got the instigators that are coming in from the outside.  They were coming in on buses from out of state.  If you go back and look at some of the arrests that were made last night.  I can about say probably 70% of those had out-of-state IDs.  They’re not coming from Charlotte.”

As shocking as this statement is, it should not be a total surprise. 18 months ago, as the riots flared in Ferguson, there was one man pulling the strings of this ‘domestic false flag’… George Soros. In an apparent effort to  “keep the media’s attention on the city and to widen the scope of the incident to focus on interrelated causes — not just the overpolicing and racial discrimination narratives that were highlighted by the news media in August,” liberal billionaire George Soros donated $33million to social justice organizations which helped turn events in Ferguson from a local protest into a national flashpoint.

As The Washington Times explains,

There’s a solitary man at the financial center of the Ferguson protest movement. No, it’s not victim Michael Brown or Officer Darren Wilson. It’s not even the Rev. Al Sharpton, despite his ubiquitous campaign on TV and the streets

Rather, it’s liberal billionaire George Soros, who has built a business empire that dominates across the ocean in Europe while forging a political machine powered by nonprofit foundations that impacts American politics and policy, not unlike what he did with MoveOn.org.

Mr. Soros spurred the Ferguson protest movement through years of funding and mobilizing groups across the U.S., according to interviews with key players and financial records reviewed by The Washington Times.

Still not buying it? As The New American recently reported, Ken Zimmerman, the director of U.S. programs at Soros’s Open Society Foundations (OSF), denied last year that Soros had funded BLM, saying it was just a rumor. 

That was before hackers with DCLeaks.com published OSF documents showing that the Soros group had already given at least $650,000 directly to BLM.

I maintain that 'political correctness' has as much to do with what is correct — i.e. true — as 'ethnic cleansing' has to do with personal hygiene.” – Clifford May

Mr. May brilliantly exposes “political correctness” as what it is: anti-American, anti-First Amendment word burning. This is the Democrats' go-to political strategy to control—or severely limit—the social discourse. Hillary Clinton polarizes via hate speech: demonizing the proponents of traditional American values.

Mrs. Clinton was wrong to proclaim half of Trump supporters a “basket of deplorables”: racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, or Islamaphobic.

Will Hillary’s Persistent Nystagmus Be Caught On Film During Debate? (Videos) "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

In the following video, provided by the Next News Network, Hillary Clinton's health is under a microscope, and now more than ever before. Key observers have uncovered two new major new indicators that back up Dr. Ted Noel's theory that Hillary Clinton has Parkinson's Disease. There are two videos, from 7/23 and 9/19 shown below that both demonstrate disturbing movement from Hillary’s eyes. 

The video from 7/23 shows persistent nystagmus at rest, and the video from 9/19 shows a loss of vergence, vergence being the simultaneous movement of the pupils of the eyes toward or away from one another when focusing. If you look at the video from Temple on 9/19, she uses her right eye to look at something off to the right, and if you watch the film carefully, her left eye overshoots whatever target the right eye was targeting, and then eventually wanders back into place. 

When asked about the seriousness of the condition, Dr. Noel is quick to inform the viewers that not only the condition serious, it could be terminal. The reason, he explains, is because “the control of eye movement comes from the 3rd, 4th, and 6th cranial nerves. The nerves come directly from the brain to the eye, and the condition cannot be made to be anything else.” For that reason, whatever is wrong with Hillary, it’s something going on inside the brain, and in a very...

SHOCKING: Obama Says America Must SUBMIT to NWO Laws & SURRENDER Freedoms at UN – FINAL Speech "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

hqdefault

US President Barack Obama has recently made a statement on his final speech at the United Nations (UN), and it is a very interesting statement made from such a high level person of position.

To summarize, Obama pretty much said that America needs to submit itself to international laws, HOWEVER, the catch to doing just that, will require that the nation and its people SURRENDER some of its FREEDOMS.

“Binding ourselves to International Rules, over the long term, enhances “OUR” Security.” – Barack Obama (who is this “OUR” …I doubt it means you or me would have our freedoms enhanced? This language utilized by Obama is an example of how Totalitarian Governments attempt to control millions of people, and this speech is how they can prod their subjects into accepting that which is not true.. it is pure propaganda and called DOUBLETHINK!!!)

The United Nations’ purpose is to bring about the New World Economic Order (NWO) Or it is thru the that they can have an international system of governance. They need the UN because that is what its intentions are for.

The UN is not to help the world around us or to assist smaller countries of origin. The UN is a system that has been carefully orchestrated and built to support the wealthy and establish a system of GLOBAL governance that “THEY”, the very few elitist and powerful, can run and rule over the small and the weak of society …or ….the NWO literally means NO MIDDLE CLASS to which is called, Neo-Fuedalism

You can fast forward to 50 seconds to hear Obama’s words. Then please listen to this videographer as he explains the role that the United Nations (UN) plays in this push for a global governance (NWO) and the devastating consequences for humanity.

This single incident is one of many that have been laying waste to beneficial pollinators which has now led to the bumblebee’s proposed listing as an endangered species.

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service on Wednesday proposed listing the rusty patched bumblebee, a prized but vanishing pollinator once widely found in the upper Midwest and Northeastern United States, for federal protection as an endangered species, according to Reuters.

The Bumblebee is one of several wild bee species seen declining in the last couple of decades. It has now become the first ever bee in the continental United States formally proposed for listing under the U.S. Endangered Species Act.

Bumblebees, as distinguished from domesticated honey bees, are essential pollinators of wildflowers and about a third of U.S. crops, from blueberries to tomatoes, said Sarina Jepsen of the Xerces Society for Invertebrate Conservation, which petitioned the government for protection of the insect, as reported by Reuters.

According to experts, bumblebees’ contribution to farms is estimated at a whopping $3.5 billion.

The rusty patched species is one of 47 varieties of native bumblebees in the United States and Canada, more than a quarter of which face a risk of extinction, according to the International Union for the Conservation of Nature.

Population declines among wild bees are much more difficult to document than those in honey bees, which are for the most part managed commercially and whose numbers are carefully tracked by beekeepers, Jespen said, as reported by Reuters.

According to Reuters, Jepsen said protections proposed for the rusty patched bumblebee will intensify the debate over the degree to which so-called neonicotinoid pesticides, routinely used in agriculture and applied to plants and trees in gardens and parks, have contributed to the decline of native bees.

While there is still debate over neonicotinoid pesticides, the only one not recognizing their harm — is the industry that uses them.

In the 1980s, Bayer developed a potent new class of pesticide called neonicotinoids (neonics), which rapidly came to dominate industrial agriculture. In 2008, they represented 24 percent of the global market for insecticides, with Imidacloprid becoming the most widely used insecticide in the world.

Almost all U.S. corn and about one-third of U.S. soybean is treated with neonics. A “major advance” happened when agribusiness developed neonic-coated seeds, where every part of the growing plant becomes infused with the toxin, including pollen.

After government regulators, deep in the pockets of agribusiness, rushed to approve neonics for commercial sale, scientific studies began documenting the ecological impacts. Bird populations and other insectivores declined due to a lack of insect prey, as neonics became more widely used.

In 2006 we began seeing dramatic die-offs of honeybee populations, which play a vital role in pollinating food crops. Colony collapse disorder became a common occurrence, with bees showing classic signs of insecticide poisonings such as tremors, uncoordinated movement and convulsions.

The new big brother game that teaches you to spy "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

(INTELLIHUB) — The following video was aimed at recruiting users to interface with a police state style video game that boasts using technology in the characters script that identifies and tracks people in the games setting by outsourcing to “someone outside the nation.”

The video starts off with a female speaking English, maybe with a small foreign accent, saying:

“Thanks to the governments safety bill the nation is experiencing the lowest level of violent crimes in years. There are still those who pose a threat to our peaceful citizens. To all of us”

The video skips to the description of this new security program:

“Introducing Orwell — a new security program that provides cutting edge information retrieval with human directed suspect profiling. for Orwell to be truly successful, however, we need you — someone outside of the nation capable of discerning information posted by suspects online.

You will have to carefully decide what information is crucial for our investigations. Stakes are high… and lives hang in the balance.”

“Sign up now and together we can ensure a safer nation for all.”

“Orwell — Keeping an eye on you.”

At the end, an “accept job offer” button is clicked which then takes you to what looks like a social media page called “A New Solution For State Security.”

The video shows the computer screen and you, the operator, who is observing and discerning what information you choose to send through email to Orwell.

This is a real game that will be “invading your privacy late 2016,” the video read.

Even more troubling is the fact that the YouTube channel is named “Surprise Attack.”

“Kill this MotherF***er!” — Leaked Video Shows Cop Plot To Kill Unarmed Man Then Murder Him "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

stockleySt. Louis, MO — In December 2011, St. Louis Police Officer Jason Stockley violated department policy when he grabbed his personal AK-47, premeditated, and then murdered Anthony Lamar Smith. The planning of the murder and the actual murder were captured on the officer’s dashcam. However, no one has ever seen that footage — until this week.

Thanks to a St. Louis Police Department insider, the dashcam video of Stockley’s crimes were finally leaked to the public. This week, an anonymous person dropped off a USB drive to a local FOX affiliate of the entire incident. What it shows is nothing short of a conspiracy to commit and then allegedly cover up a murder.

As the dashcam video begins, officer Stockley is attempting to arrest Smith who’s been suspected of possessing a substance deemed illegal by the state — otherwise known as a drug bust. Not wanting to be kidnapped for doing something that harms no one and makes him happy, Smith fled. At this point, Stockley pulls out his personal AK-47 with a drum magazine and begins dangerously squeezing off rounds in the middle of town.

Unable to murder Smith for running away, Stockley and his partner began a highly dangerous pursuit, endangering everyone around him by driving upwards of 90 mph through busy city streets in the rain. At one point, Stockley’s partner Brian Bianchi, who is driving the car, loses control and crashes into a tree. This infuriated the trigger happy cop.

”Back up,” Stockley yells.

According to the St. Louis Circuit Attorney’s Probable Cause Statement, Stockley then says something that foreshadows what’s about to happen — he premeditates the murder of Smith.  Prosecutors believe he said “…going to kill this mother-******, don’t you know it.”

After the officers ran through a number of red lights, Stockley tells Bianchi to ram Smith after he’d stopped, “hit him right now.”

The patrol car smashes into the surrendering Smith.

Both cops surround the car with Stockley immediately firing five shots into Smith — killing him.

The in-car camera shows Stockley then throw his personal weapon, which was a violation of department policy, into the back of the cruiser. He then exits and returns moments later and begins to dig around in a bag — most likely grabbing a ‘drop gun’ to plant it on Smith.

After the shooting, police found a pistol lying in Smith’s vehicle. However, according to prosecutors, it “was later determined by lab analysis to have only (Stockley’s) DNA on it.”

The police video then cuts out and we are unable to see anything else.

 

Before this dashcam footage was released, a citizen’s cellphone video was the only evidence showing that Stockley entered Smith’s car. When we combine the two videos, however, it shows what the police apparently did not want the public to see.

After Stockley rummaged through the bag and got out with empty hands, implying that he’d hid something, he walked over to the car. He then hangs around driver’s side door and makes several attempts to lean in while being pushed back by one of the officers. However, once Smith’s body is dragged from the vehicle, Stockley quickly sits in the driver’s seat....

What does the CIA, NSA, FBI, DHS and the NFL Have In Common? "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

george_allen_football_1988-294

Tyranny is tyranny, it does not matter what acronym you use referring to. The NFL is just another in a long line of criminal institutions that abuse the trust of the American public. Did you know that the NFL’s Baltimore Ravens accepted money to promote veterans at their home football games so that the establishment could continue to advance the cause of supporting our illegal wars of occupation? The NFL is for gun confiscation and also subjects their fans to TSA, sexually molesting searches before entering their games.  If you, as an American citizen do not understand the need to boycott the NFL, you will after reading this article.

When it comes to the rogue agencies listed in the title, there is no difference between the the NFL and the CIA, DHS, NSA and the FBI. They all violate human rights, Constitutional rights, State and federal statutes  and human dignity. The NFL may not be a formal part of the US government, but they may as well be as this article will point out. However, there is light at the end of this tunnel as the American people are waking up to the heinous nature of the National Football League.

The first two weeks of the  2016 National Football League are in the books. It would seem that Americans are waking up. The television ratings are down, significantly down. Further, the number of empty seats, from already purchased seats, at NFL games are down.

BREAKING: Officer Charged for Killing Innocent Unarmed Father With His Hands Up on "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

pastor2

UPDATE: On Thursday afternoon, District Attorney Steve Kunzweiler directed his staff to file a first-degree manslaughter charge against Officer Betty Shelby in the fatal shooting of Terence Crutcher. According to the Tulsa World report:

A warrant has been issued for her arrest and arrangements made for her surrender.

Kunzweiler filed the charge after reviewing dash cam video and helicopter video that captured the shooting. He also reviewed citizen 911 calls, witness interviews and other evidence, according to a news release from the District Attorney’s Office.

“Officer Shelby, although now charged, is presumed to be innocent under the law until a judge or jury determines otherwise,” the release states.

Tulsa, OK — Tulsa Police Officer Betty Shelby fatally shot 40-year-old Terence Crutcher Friday night when he experienced car trouble after leaving night classes at Tulsa Community College — and now, dash cam video of the shooting shows the man’s arms were in the air when Shelby took his life.

“His hands were in the air from all views,” pastor Rodney Goss of the Morning Star Baptist Church, who viewed footage from both dash cams and a police helicopter prior to the public release, told the Tulsa World. “It was not apparent from any angle at any point he lunged, came toward, aggressively attacked, or made any sudden movements that would have been considered a threat or life-threatening toward the officer.”

Police had thus far claimed Crutcher — whose SUV broke down in the middle of the road — approached the officers aggressively while refusing to obey commands to raise his arms, an action the helicopter pilot notes would perhaps be worthy of deploying the Taser.

“He’s got his hands up for her now,” the pilot says of Crutcher, adding a moment later the man appears uncooperative and may need to be tased.

Officer Tyler Turnbough then deployed his Taser against Crutcher, but Shelby fired before the electric jolt could even knock him to the ground. Video from one patrol car’s dash can and that as seen from a police helicopter circling above clearly shows Crutcher not acting aggressively as the cops surround and then murder him.

“It wasn’t a matter of minutes, it was a matter of moments,” Goss noted. “As quick as the officer released the Taser from his hand, Terence was falling to the ground having already been shot.”

Worse, he explained, the officers seemed not to treat their victim with any concern, and made no moves to provide first aid after the tasing and shooting.

“After having been shot, a couple minutes it appears, but it seemed like a lifetime,...

How Much Faith Do You Have in the Vote Counting Process? "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

In an age of digital and online voting, there is no way to know if the announced results of any given election faithfully express the intent of the voters. This is not only because digitized voting machines can be hacked or manipulated. The fact is, modernday ballots are not available as public documents — even after elections.

Dr. Jonathan Simon, executive director of Election Defense Alliance, tells WhoWhatWhy’s Jeff Schechtman that this is a risk we should not be taking when so much is at stake. Simon makes a data-driven argument that our computerized voting system is frighteningly vulnerable to corruption and partisan sabotage — at a time when corruption and partisanship are rampant. He argues that we have sacrificed transparency for convenience and speed, and that nothing short of votes counted observably and by hand can undo the damage to democracy.

Is he a hero of the people, or an enemy of the state?

A New York man who has become known as the “Red Light Robin Hood” is attempting to run for state senate, despite the fact that he is facing charges that could put him in jail for years… and he may actually have a chance at winning.

Stephen Ruth recently spoke with Luke Rudkowski of WeAreChange.org and explained how he turned himself in to police after defacing dozens of red light cameras in order to raise awareness about the shady and dangerous practice – which make intersections far less safe and which impede upon the constitutional right to due process.

Ruth decided that the situation warranted civil disobedience, and has received widespread support from community members who feel exploited by the cameras, and the ridiculous fines that are accrued by the state.

“See what I just did? All it took was a pair of balls and a painter’s extension rod,” Ruth said in a 2015 video explaining how to disable traffic cameras.

via WeAreChange.org

In this video Luke Rudkowski interviews the Red Light Robin Hood Stephen Ruth who one night decided to go out in Long Island and destroy 19 red light cameras in an act of civil disobedience. Find out why in this video and the darker truths about red light cameras.

Ruth says he has collected evidence showing that municipalities in Suffolk County, where he lives on Long Island, have shortened the timing of yellow lights, making it harder for drivers to safely pass through yellow lights or, alternately, to come to a safe stop.

In 1871, the U.S. Treasury went bankrupt as a result of the Civil War. It sought help from global financiers, such as Rothschild’s of London. Global bankers were eager to buy, and the treasonous Act of 1871 was passed by the 41st Congress. The Constitution was altered, and America was transformed into a Corporation. Today, it’s still a corporation owned and run by central bankers. There is no Federal government, only a Federal corporation. Politicians do not serve “we the people,” they work for Corporate America and no one else. America’s product? You.

Two Wings Of The Same Dragon: President Bush Plans To Vote For Hillary Clinton "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

twowingssamedragonmeme

twowingssamedragonmeme

So former President and Republican icon George H.W. Bush is gonna vote for Hillary, huh?

What a stunner!

Or not.

If you were actually stunned by the recent “revelation” that Republican Anti-Christ Statist GHW Bush was going to cast his vote for President in favor of Democrat Anti-Christ Statist Hillary Clinton, you really do need some help.

A lot of help.

And I mean that sincerely.

You need to put down whatever GOP supplied crack pipe you may have been regularly smoking and/or put down the Republican/Democrat, Left/Right paradigm tinted glasses you’ve been viewing the world through and just take a sec to look at the real world as it actually is.

A minute or two oughta do it.

Oh sure, it’s a hard first minute or two, what with your whole worldview likely to be rocked to its core as you come to realize that you’ve been embarassingly duped, played like a cheap violin, and spun like a top for years (likely decades for many of you) by your favorite talk show hosts, politicians, entertainers, and even many of your favorite pastors, but that’s how detox works. That’s what withdrawal feels like. It ain’t pretty for a short while, but if you can just stick to it – if you can just stick to reality and resist the urge to put the artificial lenses back on and dive back into the comfort of The Matrix – you really can emerge on the other side with a clear sense of reality as it actually exists – and a clear basis from which to operate against the forces that put the crack pipe in your hands in the first place.

No more America worship.

No more Statism as the answer.

No more anti-Christ approaches to economics, law, art, war, business, government, education or anything else.

It’s all coming down.

It’s all going away.

It’s all being swept up and into the fire by the judgment of God over His creation of time and in His creation of space.

That’s where true reality is heading by way of His Gospel-fueled Great Commission.

But in order to even begin to see that beautiful, glorious, inspiring and envigorating reality, we’re gonna have to give up the Left/Right paradigm. We’re gonna have to ditch the Republican/Democrat diversion. We’re gonna have to put down our favorite teddy bear and grow up.

We’re going to have to embrace Christ as King in political practice so that we can help slay – rather than keep coddling and enabling – the two headed anti-Christ dragon that’s trying its hardest to drag us and our children to hell.

So whaddaya say?

Can we stop pretending?

Can we stop playing along with those who are obviously conspiring together against the King and Kingdom of God?

A Second Night Of Riots Rocks Charlotte As America Teeters On The Edge Of Chaos "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

charlotte-riots-youtube-screenshot-460x345

charlotte-riots-youtube-screenshot-460x345

Rioting and civil unrest are becoming a common occurrence in America. The city of Charlotte has been hit by a second night of violence even though authorities are desperately pleading for calm. What sparked the chaos in Charlotte was the shooting of a 43-year-old black man named Keith Lamont Scott. It appears that he was armed when he was shot, and the police officer that shot him was also black, but those facts have done little to ease the fury of the protesters. On Tuesday night 16 police officers were injured by rioters, including one that was hit in the face by a rock. Hopefully there will be fewer casualties by the time the violence on Wednesday night is over.

So far things don’t look good though. The following is how USA Today is describing the violence that we have witnessed so far on Wednesday night…

A second night of dramatic protests gripped this North Carolina city Wednesday night, one day after a police-involved shooting of an African-American man led to angry demonstrations, smashed windows and trucks set ablaze.

Protesters beat against a police van and broke a window of the Ciity Smoke barbecue restaurant and bar downtown. Some yelled “hands up, don’t shoot.” Police tossed out smoke bombs. Protesters running outside of the Omni Charlotte Hotel said someone had been shot but that could not immediately be confirmed Wednesday night.

Later on it was confirmed that someone indeed was shot. In fact, local news is reporting that there is a pool of blood on the ground

At least one person was injured in the confrontation, though it wasn’t immediately clear how.

They shot him,” one witness told WBTV. “They tried to cover up his blood.”

Firefighters rushed in to pull the man to a waiting ambulance.

Officers on bicycles surrounded a pool of blood on the ground and a few people threw bottles and clods of dirt at police.

Of course this follows an extremely tense night of violence and chaos that made headlines all over the globe. Just hours after Keith Lamont Scott was shot, hundreds of very angry protesters descended on downtown Charlotte

Several hundred people blocked streets well after midnight, despite the use of tear gas by police in riot gear. Clouds of tear gas drifted over the crowd, and people coughed and fell back before walking toward police lines again multiple times....

Christian Coach Faces Setback in Fight for Religious Freedom "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

1444843113248

For most people, there is little if any desire to be noticed. Most people really just wish to be left alone. This is especially true when they have done nothing wrong. This probably is the way that Coach Joe Kennedy feels right now.

As I reported, Joe had the habit of kneeling at the fifty-yard line after every game. It was not something that he announced or told others about. Joe is a Christian and felt that it was proper to take a moment before he left the field. He wanted to take this time to thank God for his answered prayers.

Joe regularly prayed for his athletes, and he wanted to thank God for not allowing his students to be harmed during the game. This turned into an incident, as more and more students joined him. And though Joe never asked anyone to join him, Bremerton District School in Washington State told him that he had to stop.

When Joe refused, they put him on Administrative leave, and Joe sued the schools in an effort to regain his job. This attempt has hit a snag.

Fox reports:

There’s been a legal setback for Joe Kennedy, the high school football coach who lost his job after he refused to stop praying at midfield after football games.

U.S. District Judge Ronald Leighton declined to issue a preliminary injunction that would have forced the Bremerton School District in Washington State to rehire Coach Joe while his case is litigated.

Though this is not the end of the road, it makes it an uphill battle from here. Here’s hoping that God will grant success as the coach fights for his job.

Boston Jihadi Pleads GUILTY in Plot to Behead Me "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

boston-beheading-plot

boston-beheading-plot

Here’s my take on the plea deal with one of the Muslims in the Boston jihad plot to behead me.

“Geller: Muslim Who Plotted to Behead Me Returns to Catholicism,” By Pamela Geller, Breitbart News, September 21, 2016:

The Boston Globe reported Tuesday that “one of the men charged earlier this year with supporting the terror group ISIS and conspiring to recruit others to a ‘martyrdom operations cell’ has agreed to plead guilty in federal court in Boston.

Nicholas Alexander Rovinski, 25, of Warwick, RI, was charged in June 2015 with conspiracy to support ISIS. He was later indicted on charges of conspiracy to commit acts of terrorism transcending national boundaries, and obstruction of justice, and faces life in prison. He is slated to plead guilty Thursday.”

He faces life in prison, but he is only going to get fifteen years. The government is working on a plea agreement with Rovinski, solely in order to ensure that he serves a lengthy sentence. There is a significant difference between Rovinski and his fellow jihad conspirator, David Wright: Rovinski came into the plot later in time, and played less of a role. The deal requires him to receive a sentence of at least 15 years if he pleads guilty to two counts.

The maximum sentence for aiding ISIS is 20 years. The first count in Rovinski’s case involves the initial charge against him: conspiracy to provide material support to ISIS. Prosecutors are unlikely to get a guilty verdict on that one, because while Rahim and Wright were both in touch with ISIS operatives in Syria, Rovinski was not. He reportedly has cerebral palsy and walks with a limp, and is very limited in speech and movement. Wright, not Rovinski, was the ringleader of the plan to behead me. The evidence is overwhelming against Wright.

In conversations that were recorded by law enforcement officials, Rovinski says very little. Rahim decided that he didn’t want to wait until July 4th, which was initially the day they had chosen for their jihad attack. He, of course, eventually grew so impatient that he discarded the idea of traveling from Boston to New York to behead me, and suddenly decided to kill a police officer in Boston instead. In the conversations, Wright exhorts Rahim to stay firm, very much like the Blind Sheikh in the plotting of the 1993 jihad attack against the World Trade Center. Wrig...

Living In A Van Down By The River – Time To Face The True State Of The Middle Class In America "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

van-public-domain-460x307

van-public-domain-460x307

Do you remember the old Saturday Night Live sketches in which comedian Chris Farley portrayed a motivational speaker that lived in a van down by the river?  Unfortunately, this is becoming a reality for way too many Americans.  As the middle class has shrunk and the cost of living has increased, a lot of people have decided to quite literally “live on the road.”  Whether it is a car, a truck, a van, a bus or an RV, an increasing number of Americans are using their vehicles as their homes.  Just recently, someone that I know took a trip down the west coast of the United States and stayed at a number of campgrounds along the way.  What she discovered was that a lot of people were actually living at these campgrounds.  Of course there are some that actually prefer that lifestyle, but many others are doing it out of necessity.

Earlier this week, Circa.com posted a story about “the van life.”  One of the individuals that they featured was a recent graduate of the University of Southern California named Stephen Hutchins.  Without much of an income at the moment, he decided that the best way to cut expenses was to live in his van

“The main expenses are insurance for the van, which is like $60 a month,” said Hutchins. “Then, I have a storage unit for like $60.”

That puts his monthly rent at $120. The van cost him just $125 at an auction.

Living in a van is certainly not the most comfortable way to go, and many of you are probably wondering how he performs basic tasks such as cooking and bathing.  Well, it turns out that he makes extensive use of public facilities

He showers at the gym, cooks on a portable stove on a sidewalk (he stores his butane at his friends’ place nearby) and uses wifi at nearby coffeeshops.

For a while such a lifestyle may seem like “an adventure,” but after...

Doctor Confesses: I Lied to Protect Colleague in Malpractice Suit "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

This story was co-published with NPR's Shots blog.

Almost two decades ago Dr. Lars Aanning sat on the witness stand in a medical malpractice trial and faced a dilemma.

The South Dakota surgeon had been called to vouch for the expertise of one of his partners whose patient had suffered a stroke and permanent disability after an operation. The problem was Aanning had, in his own mind, questioned his colleague’s skill. His partner’s patients had suffered injuries related to his procedures. But Aanning understood why his partner’s attorney had called him as a witness: Doctors don’t squeal on doctors.

The attorney asked the key question: Did Aanning know of any time his partner’s work had been substandard?

“No, never,” Aanning said.

Now, Aanning, in a stunning admission for a medical professional, has a blunter answer: “I lied.”

While it’s impossible to know to what extent Aanning’s testimony influenced the outcome, the jury sided in favor of his colleague — and, ever since, Aanning said, he has felt haunted by his decision. Now, 77 and retired, he decided to write about his choice and why he made it in a recent column for his local newspaper, The Yankton County Observer. He also posted the article in the ProPublica Patient Safety Facebook group. Aanning, who is a member, called it, “A Surgeon’s Belated Confession.”

“From that very moment I knew I had lied — lied under oath — and violated all my pledges of professionalism that came with the Doctor of Medicine degree and membership in the [American Medical Association],” Aanning wrote.

Aanning, who has become an outspoken patient advocate, now assists the medical malpractice attorney who represented the patient in the case in which he lied for his partner.

There’s no way to tell how often doctors to lie to protect their colleagues, but ProPublica has found that patients are frequently not told the truth when they are harmed. Studies also show that many physicians do not have a favorable view of informing patients about mistakes and that health care workers are afraid to speak up if things don’t seem right. Many doctors and nurses have told ProPublica that they fear retaliation if they speak out about patient safety problems.

ProPublica spoke to Aanning about his unusual column and why he decided to confess all these years later. This interview has been edited for clarity and length.

Why did you tell the lie?

I did it as a matter of course. And I did it because there was a cultural attitude I was immersed in: You viewed all attorneys as a threat and anything that you did was OK to thwart their efforts to sue your colleagues. I just accepted that as normal. It wasn’t like, “I’m going to lie.” It was, “I’m going to support my colleague.”

Did you feel pressure from your peers to never criticize a colleague?

Pressure is the prevailing attitude of the medical profession. The professional societies like the AMA and the American College of Surgeons say you should be a patient advocate at all times....

3 Small-Scale Developer Stories to Inspire You "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

We're proud to have many Strong Towns members involved in the small-scale developers movement—a group of people who are creating better towns, one building at a time. These are young people, old people, parents, programmers, teachers, architects and everyone in between. They're not wealthy real estate moguls. They're people like you and me.

Here are three stories about small-scale developers to inspire you this Friday:

HISTORIC BUILDINGS GET NEWER, GREENER LEASE ON LIFE

"The major success at El Moore has been its foundation in the community. There are lots of opportunity for the people who live and visit here to interact with each other [...] The apartments are in demand. Our rental numbers are quite high." ~Peggy Brennan

Peggy and Tom Brennan recently renovated and opened two unique buildings in downtown Detroit: the Green Garage, a business incubator and coworking space, and El Moore, a residential apartment building and urban lodge. In this interview which we published as part of CNU 24 in June, Peggy talks about how these businesses got started and where they're headed now. Read the whole story.

"The Inspiring Communities program isn't a panacea. But it is a Strong Towns approach in action. It's a campaign of small investments, a large number of them, with the potential for a far more durable return on investment in the long run. It will take patience and perseverance. It will take a lot of heart."  
   ~Daniel Herriges

Strong Towns contributor, Daniel Herriges, tells the story of a historic home renovation effort in St. Paul, MN. This project is demonstrating—one house at a time—how a critical mass of Strong Citizens can be an incredible asset to a troubled area, and how local government can play a constructive role in incremental neighborhood revitalization.

Peter Schiff: Biggest Fed Decision in History; They’re Screwed Either Way (Video) "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

yellen

If you find yourself confused about who to believe when it comes to the state of the U.S. economy, then the following podcast with Peter Schiff should help make the decision a little easier. On one hand, there are some economists saying the sky is falling, and the U.S. Dollar is inevitably going to collapse, but on the other hand, U.S. markets are at all time highs, so how is a layman to make sense of any of it? 

The following podcast was recorded a day or so before the Fed announced what was arguably its biggest decision ever this past Wednesday, regarding whether or not to raise interest rates for only the second time in years, as they’ve been hinting they might do for some time now… or "bluffing about" as Peter has been accusing Yellen of since last December. He claims, and many agree, the constant bluff that rates could go up give the illusion to those who don't know better that the economy is getting better. The truth, is that the economy is getting FAR worse, as Peter covers in many of the links at the bottom, and Yellen is bluffing with the intent to artificially manipulate the market from dropping. 

Peter explains that no matter what decision the Fed ultimately came to this past Wednesday, they were damned if they raised rates, and damned if they didn’t. He argues that the meeting was more likely about discussing the corner the Fed has painted itself into with Yellen’s lies, and by the fact that so far, the Fed’s decisions have been 100% political, rather than based on economic data.

Janet Yellen claims that the decisions made by the Fed are “data dependent,” however the one and only time the Fed has raised rates, they did so at a time when the data was significantly worse than just a mon...

EXCLUSIVE: The REAL Syria Civil Defence Expose Nato’s ‘White Helmets’ as Terrorist-Linked Imposters "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

“I am a director not only of a Syrian Civil Defence Unit, but of brave human beings, volunteers who risk their lives, despite the terrorism that is invading Syria, to maintain security for Syria. I give thanks from my heart for the courage of my men who have lost their comrades in terrorist attacks but they keep working despite the risks. They are true soldiers, their equipment and their spirit are their only weapons”
~ Director of Tartous’ REAL Syria Civil Defence

Did I hear a pin drop?  The real Syria Civil Defence? Are the west’s iconized ‘White Helmets’ not the only emergency first-responders inside Syria?

For the REAL Syria Civil Defence you call 113 inside Syria.  There is no public number for the White Helmets.  Why not? Why does this multi-million dollar US & NATO state-funded first repsonder ‘NGO,’ with state of the art equipment supplied by the US and the EU via Turkey, have no central number for civilians to call when the “bombs fall”?

Before we introduce the real Syria Civil Defence, who are Syria’s real ICDO certified civil fire and rescue organisation, let’s first take a closer look at the imposters; terrorists in white hats, and agents of war – NATO’s pseudo ‘NGO’ construct, embedded exclusively in terrorist-held parts of Syria…

We’re told that the White Helmets routinely scale the walls of collapsed buildings and scrambling over smouldering rubble of bombed out buildings to dig a child out with their bare hands. Of course, never without a sizeable camera crew and mobile phone carrying entourage in tow.

AN AMERICAN TRAGEDY: Who Really Killed JonBenét Ramsey? "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

“Do roses know their thorns can hurt?” a quote attributed to JonBenét Ramsey from Lawrence Schiller’s Perfect Murder, Perfect Town 

Shawn Helton
21st Century Wire

It’s been nearly 20 years since the cold-blooded murder of JonBenét Ramsey shocked America.  

On December 26, 1996, the lifeless body of a 6-year-old girl, JonBenét Ramsey, was found brutally murdered in the basement of her family home. The grisly discovery stunned a quiet and affluent community in Boulder, Colorado and quickly became one of the most disturbing unsolved crimes in the United States over the past two decades.

ramsey-murder-case-21wire-slider-sh-new-2
The killing of JonBenét was an American tragedy and still to this day, it remains a haunting case and enigma.

Below we’ll examine some of the key elements surrounding the Ramsey investigation, along with some of the prevailing theories concerning JonBenét’s homicide…

Throughout the course of this crime analysis, there will be references to a compilation of media reports, independent investigative reports, as well as the court case, Wolf v. Ramsey in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Georgia which convened in 2003.

The 2003 case stated that a Boulder journalist named Robert Christian Wolf filed a $50 million defamation suit against John Ramsey and wife Patsy Ramsey after being referred to by the family as a possible suspect in the death of JonBenét in the couple’s controversial book, Death of Innocence.

During the Wolf v. Ramsey court case, some shocking details surrounding JonBenét’s murder were reviewed once again. Subsequently, John and Patsy Ramsey were sued in two separate defamation lawsuits (including Linda Hoffman-Pugh) after the publication of their controversial book about the murder of their daughter.

Consciousness as a problem solver supreme "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

Consciousness as a problem solver supreme

by Jon Rappoport

September 23, 2016

These are notes I wrote preparing my second mega-collection, Exit From The Matrix:

“Consciousness is a problem solver supreme because consciousness isn’t a static unchanging quality. It is dynamic. It moves, and it moves through imagination.”

“Imagination finds a way through or around problems, when problems are the issue at hand. Imagination makes a leap out in front of a problem and conceives of new ideas, data, approaches.”

“Imagination specializes in leaps across rivers where there are no bridges. Imagination is a quality that goes beyond ‘information at hand’.”

“Every enterprise needs someone with imagination in spades. He may not be understood, but he supplies what the enterprise can’t get anywhere else: the leap. The leap beyond the facts into a future where the problem is solved or dissolved entirely. I’m not talking about an aimless wish or a fairy tale. The imaginer is more real than real.”

“Why not have imagination exercises and techniques a person can practice every day, in order to expand his creative power? In this way, the seemingly impossible becomes palpable.”

“Imagination exercises would also cure the addiction to What Already Is. They would cure the addiction to the past. They would open up the future as invented space and time.”

My collection, Exit From The Matrix, contains more than 50 fully explained and specific imagination exercises I’ve developed over the past 20 years. You practice them on a daily basis.

Oakland: Demonstration in Solidarity with the Charlotte Rebellion "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

Submitted to It’s Going Down

On September 20th, Keith Lamont Scott was killed by police while carrying a book that was “mistaken” for a gun. This comes on the heels of a hot summer rife with tension and the largest ever nation-wide prisoner strike. The staggering number of Black people killed by the police each year coupled with the looming monstrosity that is the prison-industrial complex serve as almost daily reminders that Black people are only given two options in this country: slavery, or death.

The media, through a combination of twisted facts, bald faced lies, and an onslaught of coverage, render this truth at once commonwealth and overwhelming. We’ve seen this in Dallas, in Columbus, Atlanta, New York, Baltimore and of course countless times here in the Bay.

But there is another option – to fight – and the courageous youth in Charlotte are showing the way. Freedom isn’t granted; it is ripped from the hands of the oppressors. We regain our dignity when we fight for our lives. We will meet at 7pm on Saturday the 24th at Latham Square – the starting point of two historic general strikes – to collectively show solidarity with those fighting for their lives in Charlotte and our opposition to the police and their world.

Big Pharma-Big Agra Mergers: Furthering the Synthetic Agenda "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

big dharma-big agra mergers

big dharma-big agra mergers

Big Pharma-Big Agra mergers consolidate the chemical industries and further the NWO synthetic agenda. The Bayer-Monsanto deal is just the latest.

Big Pharma-Big Agra mergers

have accelerated recently, with Syngenta being bought by ChemChina (China National Chemical Corporation), Dow Chemical merging with DuPont, and Monsanto agreeing to be acquired by Bayer on Sept. 14th 2016 for US$66 billion. Bayer and Monsanto have signed off on the deal. Syngenta had previously rejected a $47 billion takeover bid by Monsanto last year in 2015. Now US and EU regulators will examine the Bayer-Monsanto deal. If the deal is approved, this new corporate behemoth would be the largest agribusiness on Earth, selling 29% of the world’s seeds and 24% of the world’s pesticides. This would constitute a massive consolidation of power into the hands of a few, a power which would determine who gets seeds to grow food to eat, and who doesn’t. Big Pharma and Big Biotech are in the same kind of industries – using synthetic, artificial and chemical techniques to “hack” life and duplicate products which are of inferior quality to the original – and more harmful. Big Pharma-Big Agra mergers are therefore to be expected, although that doesn’t make them any less dangerous. The centralization of chemical production is indicative of the greater New World Order plan of centralization of power – as well as the synthetic agenda which underlines all its machinations.

Education Department Terminates Agency That Allowed Predatory For-profit Colleges to Thrive "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

The Education Department announced today that it is stripping the powers of one of the nation’s largest accreditors of for-profit schools.

The Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges and Schools, or ACICS, has been under scrutiny for continuing to accredit colleges whose students had strikingly poor outcomes.

As ProPublica has reported, schools accredited by the agency on average have the lowest graduation rates in the country and their students have the lowest loan repayment rates.

Accreditors are supposed to ensure college quality, and their seal of approval gives schools access to billions of federal student aid dollars.

As we have also reported, two-thirds of ACICS commissioners — who make the ultimate decisions about accreditation for schools — were executives at for-profit colleges. Many of the commissioners worked at colleges that were under investigation.

Critics who’ve pointed to abuses by for-profit colleges celebrated today’s action.

“The rot from poor behavior spread beyond just the for-profit schools to the people who were supposed to be looking over them,” said Ben Miller, senior director for postsecondary education at the Center for American Progress. “This is an extremely important decision both in protecting students and taxpayers.”

ACICS accredits over 200 colleges, which enroll an estimated 600,000 students. Schools accredited by ACICS received around $5 billion in federal student aid last year.

Two of the nation’s largest chains of for-profit colleges — Corinthian Colleges and ITT Educational Services — both remained accredited by ACICS while facing multiple investigations from government agencies before they shut down.

“ACICS’s track record does not inspire confidence,” wrote Education Department Chief of Staff Emma Vadehra in a letter to the agency’s chief executive today.

Who Keeps Billions of Taxpayer Dollars Flowing to For-Profit Colleges? These Guys

Accreditation agencies are supposed to make sure that colleges are putting students in a position to succeed. That’s not happening at schools overseen by one accreditor in particular. Read the story.

Over the past few months, a growing chorus of critics have called on the Education Department to take action, including more than a dozen state attorneys general, over 20 consumer protection and advocacy groups, and members of Congress.

In June, the Education Department released a report on ACICS that raised 21 red flags, including about the agency’s reticence to sanction bad schools and even to verify the accuracy of schools’ metrics. The report also highlighted the agency’s lack of policing potential conflict-of-interest issues of its own board.

ACICS has said it plans to appeal today’s decision to Education Secretary John King.

“While we are disappointed in this decision, ACIC...

“CAMPING” on Your Own Land is Now ILLEGAL — Govt Waging War on Off-Grid Living "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

(Free Thought Project)  Camping on Your Own Land is Now Illegal — Govt Waging War on Off-Grid Living: –

Costilla County, CO — Across the U.S., local zoning officials are making it increasingly difficult for people to go off the grid, in some instances threatening people with jail time for collecting rainwater or not hooking into local utilities.

As zoning laws have increasingly targeted the off-grid lifestyle, many have moved to the Southwestern U.S. as an escape from overzealous zoning officials.

In Costilla County, Colorado, there has been a major influx of off-grid residents to the San Luis Valley. The combination of lax zoning regulations, cheap property, and an already thriving community of self-reliant off-grid homesteaders has led to many new residents.

The off-grid lifestyle, enjoyed by an estimated 800 people, is now being threatened as county officials have recently made moves to essentially regulate and license the lifestyle into oblivion.

Tensions boiled over during a county commissioners’ meeting in San Louis, Colorado, devolving into a shouting match between homesteaders and police. One of the major points of contention is the county’s attempt to ban camping on your own property, in an effort to force the off-grid homesteaders back onto the grid.

“We are residents who have come to live off the grid. It’s all our land.” … “These are harsh economic times. We have nowhere to go,” twenty-year resident Paul Skinner said.

“We’ve been regulated out of life,” homesteader Robin Rutan told Colorado Public Radio. “I came here because I couldn’t live by the codes [in other regions].”

The county, which requires residents to have a camping permit to live in an RV, “small house” or other camp style home, has started to simply refuse the renewal of these permits.

This is obviously a major problem for homesteaders, who often live in such accommodations while building their permanent residents.

“They started enforcing the changes before they were actually made,” resident Chloe Everhart said.

Everhart said she performed due diligence prior to buying her land, with one of the most important aspects of the plan being a 90-day camping permit. Without a 90-day permit, camping on residential plots is only allowed for 14 days per every three months.

But just as Everhart was arriving, the board of commissioners instructed the planning and zoning commission to no longer issue camping permits.

In spite of her best efforts, Everhart is now an outlaw.

County land use administrator Matt Valdez disputes the claims that the county is trying to regulate people’s lifestyles out of existence. He says that his office has discretion to deny camping permits under existing code and claims that too many new residents were habitually renewing permits meant to be temporary.

“We’re not trying to drive people off their property,” Valdez said.

Valdez said he simply wants to make sure already established rules are followed for aesthetic and safety reasons.

The vilification of people who choose to live an alternative lifestyle is extremely commonplace in modern America.

While there may be legitimate issues that need to be addressed, people have a right to use land that they own in the manner they see fit. To use the technicalities of the law to essentially evict people from land they own reeks of tyrannical overreach and oppression of personal liberty.

Update: The county has dropped it’s planned zoning changes under increased public scrutiny, but they continue to refuse to issue 90-day camping permits to the off-grid land owners.

It’s true we have problems with globalism, but what he says in a way, to get out of globalism, is to leave the world alone, it’s a different philosophy.

Clinton Foundation Distributed “Watered-Down” HIV/AIDS Drugs to Patients in Africa "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

edit5-cfoundation-092116-newscom

The Clinton Health Access Initiative (CHAI) distributed "watered-down" HIV/AIDS drugs to people in sub-Saharan Africa, increasing the likelihood or morbidity and mortality, according to a draft congressional report.

The report was obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation and is titled, "The Clinton Foundation and The India Success Story." Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN), vice-chair of the House Energy and Commerce Committee, initiated the report.

Richard Pollock reports:

The CHAI program to help AIDS victims is considered one of the Clinton Foundation's most important contributions and is probably its best known initiative.

The congressional report focused on Clinton's decade-long relationship with a controversial Indian drug manufacturer called Ranbaxy, which CHAI used as one of its main distributors of HIV/AIDS drugs to Third World countries.

It also highlighted the work of Dinesh Thakur, a former Ranbaxy employee who became a star whistleblower and permitted the U.S. government to launch a landmark lawsuit against the Indian firm. The company was vulnerable to U.S. prosecution because it also sold its generic drugs on the U.S. market.

Ranbaxy ultimately pleaded guilty in 2013 to seven criminal counts with intent to defraud and the introduction of adulterated drugs into interstate commerce.

According to a press release by the DOJ from May 2013, Ranbaxy agreed to pay $500 million and pled guilty in the matter.

"This is the largest false claims case ever prosecuted in the District of Maryland, and the nation's largest financial penalty paid by a generic pharmaceutical company for FDCA violations," said U.S. Attorney for the District of Maryland Rod J. Rosenstein.  "The joint criminal and civil settlement, which reflects many years of work by FDA agents and federal prosecutors, holds Ranbaxy accountable for a pattern of violations and should improve the reliability of generic drugs manufactured in India by Ranbaxy."

"When companies sell adulterated drugs, they undermine the integrity of the FDA's approval process and may cause patients to take drugs that are substandard, ineffective, or unsafe," said Stuart F. Delery, Acting Assistant Attorney General for the C...

As Turkey’s Purge Continues, Erdogan is Looking More Like Uncle Joe "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

21st Century Wire says…

Since this past summer’s alleged ‘failed’ coup d’etat attempt in Turkey, the government of Recep Tayyip Erdoğan has undertaken one of the most systematic and brutal crackdowns on civil society seen so far in the 21st century. What started as a purge of 7,000 suspected military plotters, judges, politicians, journalists has expanded, bringing the total to upwards of 100,000 people – all suspended and arrested by the government for either treason or “having terrorist ties.” 

This week, the government in Ankara has expelled some 28,000 teachers who it deems as having “links to terrorism,” along with 785 members of the Ministry of Labour, and 24 elected mayors.


Back in July, thousands of Turkish public servants and members of the military were purged in the first week following the coup. In addition, the Turkish government stood back and sanctioned some of the most horrific violence, as Islamist mobs beat, tortured and executed any soldiers suspected of treason. The government in Ankara did not object to this, and appeared to be quietly encouraging what was being described by some as “street justice.”  Only one day after the supposed ‘failed coup’, Erdogan ordered that 2,745 judges be dismissed and detained. This was likely because the government wanted to remove any justice who might call for due process in the coming administrative show trials where Erdogan will process tens of thousands of Turkish citizens that his government deems to be “enemies of the republic.”

According to Reuters this week, 28,000 teachers have been expelled from the profession, and 9,465 others suspended -over alleged “links with terrorism,” Turkey’s Deputy Prime Minister Nurettin Canikli said on Monday.

Also, 24 elected mayors were removed from office for alleged, and as yet, undefined links with “PKK (Kurdish Workers Party) terrorism.”

The civil service has also been included in the purge this week, as some 785 members of Turkey’s labor ministry have been removed from their positions for alleged ties to Fethullah Gülen, a US-based cleric who Ankara blames for organizing the alleged failed coup in July. Beyond the Gullenists however, clearly, Erdogan has used this opportunity to eliminate political opposition, dissenters, prominent Kurds and anyone else who might oppose what is clearly a transition that’s taking place – from a pluralistic, secular society to an Islamist one.

Court Documents Expose Mark McConnell as a Government Informant against Oregon Occupiers "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

hqdefault

hqdefault

Court documents now prove that Mark McConnell, the man who was allegedly arrested the day LaVoy Finicum was murdered and claimed he was not an informant, was a government informant.

Oregon Live reported:

Mark McConnell, the driver of the Jeep that Ammon Bundy was riding in before his arrest on Jan. 26, was a government informant who had tipped off law enforcement about the occupation leaders' trip out of the wildlife refuge, according to court testimony Wednesday.

Oregon State Police Trooper Jeremiah Beckert said that McConnell provided information about the occupiers' vehicles, their location and a basic threat assessment, leading to the high-risk traffic stop on U.S. 395 about 4 p.m. that same day.

Beckert was in an unmarked police pickup truck, waiting in a Sno-Park off the rural road, when he saw a white Dodge pickup belonging to occupation spokesman Robert "LaVoy" Finicum and a Jeep go by, northbound. He activated the lights on his truck and hit the siren a few times as he moved in behind the Jeep.

Beckert, testifying in the federal trial against Ammon Bundy and six co-defendants stemming from the 41-day occupation of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in Harney County, described the traffic stop, and the arrest of Ammon Bundy and Brian Cavalier from the Jeep. He also spoke of the subsequent arrests of Ryan Bundy and Shawna Cox after Finicum's truck sped off to avoid a police roadblock and crashed into a snowbank down the road.

In case anyone forgot, McConnell made a video following Finicum's murder and the arrest of several of the occupiers. Here it is:

McConnell's claims at that time were questioned as he some of the things he said he would have had no knowledge of from his vantage point. Even we questioned whether he was an informant.

Now we know for sure that he was selling out his alleged friends as government lapdog.

For decades, I could not speak of this because my mother was living off his pensions and would have lost them if I had revealed what I was told.
