ANOTHER Woman Accuses Democrat Pervert John Conyers of Sexual Harassment Suffered Unwanted Touching Daily "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

ANOTHER ONE.

Another woman accused pervert Democrat Rep. John Conyers of sexual harassment this year according to court filings. YUCK.

Conyers admitted to having knowledge of one of the settlements, however; he is still denying the allegations!

Buzzfeed reports:

A former scheduler in the Conyers office attempted to file a sealed lawsuit against him this February in the US District Court for the District of Columbia that alleges she suffered unwanted touching by the Democrat repeatedly and daily. She abandoned the lawsuit the next month, after the court denied her motion to seal the complaint.

The lawsuit centered on behavior that took place later, from 2015 to 2016, but involves similar allegations. The woman said that shortly after she started to work for Conyers he began to make sexual advances in the form of inappropriate comments and touching.

These behaviors and actions were so common and pervasive that they created a hostile work environment, she alleged.

Conyers is reportedly mentally incapacitated perhaps due to old age because this woman was hired to keep track of him and deliver his medication!

She also cited his age and failing mental capacities in the suit, saying she was hired, in part, to keep track of his whereabouts, call to wake him up every morning, and deliver his medication, including on weekends. She said she asked a male staffer shed earlier dated to be her fake boyfriend and make regular stops by the office in the hopes of halting Conyers advances.

Conyers became physical with the victim. She was exposed to daily harassment by the Democrat lawmaker that included rubbing on her shoulders, kissing her forehead, covering and attempting to hold her hand as well as on some occasions urging her to come to his home, Buzzfeed reported.

This woman was under such stress from Conyers harassment that she suffered from depression, anxiety and insomnia. Conyers wife, Monica Conyers was also hostile towards the female victim, calling her a whore and accusing her of wanting to have an affair with her husband, Buzzfeed reported.

Conyers victim was so ill from the s...

LIMBAUGH PREVIEWS WHAT YOUR RIGHT-WING UNCLE WILL SAY ON THANKSGIVING ABOUT SEX PREDATORS "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

If you're wondering what your right-wing uncle is going to say on Thanksgiving about Roy Moore and other headline-grabbing sex predators, let me try to prepare you.

He's probably going to tell you that sexual misconduct is exclusively a liberal problem. He's likely to paraphrase what Rush Limbaugh said on the radio today:

... heres the thing about this, folks, go through names here again. Charlie Rose, Al Franken, Harvey Weinstein, Bill Clinton, Louis C.K., John Conyers, Kevin Spacey, Dustin Hoffman, Jeffrey Tambor, not a conservative among them.

Okay, well put Roy Moore on the list, but Im telling you Roy Moore cant compete with these people. Roy Moore has got no business being on the same page or in the same league with these people, particularly Clinton, Louis C.K., Spacey, Weinstein, and Charlie Rose.
As long as the media continue to play this story straight -- going after predators across the political spectrum -- and as long as rank-and-file Democrats and liberals agree that the predators on our side really are predators, some of "our" guys are going to be highlighted, and even if Republicans are as well, the GOP noise machine will downplay or memory-hole all the Republicans and portray this as a purely Democratic/liberal problem. Bill O'Reilly? Roger Ailes? Donald Trump? James Woods, who creeped on Amber Tamblyn and her friends when they were 16 and he was in his fifties? Ralph Shortey, the Oklahoma Trump campaign chair who just pleaded guilty to child sex trafficking? To Limbaugh and his listeners, they don't even exist.

Your uncle will tell you, as Limbaugh does, that the media protects liberals, even as he's listing all the people identified as liberals who were exposed by the media:
How come it took Harvey Weinstein and Hollywood to break the dam? Why did it take whats going on in Hollywood in this area to break the dam?

Why didnt the dam break with Anthony Weiner, with Carlos Danger? Multiples times this guy is engaging in absolutely reprobate behavior. And the Democrats and the media circle the wagons to make sure that nobody else gets linked to it, and they do what they do to Carlos Danger, making him fall on a bunch of swords he-he-he his own and try to limit it to that.

And I think the reason is that the Drive-By Media is more protective of the Democrats, especially the Clintons, than they are of Hollywood people. Even Hollywood people that are major donors, even Hollywood peo...

Standing Against Sexual Assault: A Response to Reports About a Former Staff Member "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

At The Intercept, we were deeply disturbed by the reports of rape and other abuses by former staff member Morgan Marquis-Boire that were described in detail this past weekend in The Verge. We had no knowledge of any such allegations against him until they surfaced publicly last month, at which time his employment with the company had already ended. (He left The Intercept in 2015, and First Look in September of this year.) Our organization has no ties whatsoever to him now. As members of the community affected by these actions, we are shaken by this news, and we stand with the women who reported the abuse.

As the media world awakens to the harassment, assault, misogyny, and sexist power dynamics that pervade the industry, we are attuned to the presence of these pernicious forces in our orbit, and we are determined to stamp them out. In the coming weeks and months, we will be ramping up The Intercepts editorial coverage of these issues. We are committed to a workplace that is free of harassment and violence, and to using our journalism to uncover the truth about these incidents and amplify voices that have historically been silenced, including those of survivors of sexual assault.

Guess Who Thought Trump Was Paid By Putin? "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

As I was perusing the New York Times article on Rep. Dana Rohrabachers woes, I was reminded that back on June 15th, 2016, House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy was captured on tape confiding with Paul Ryan, Evan McMullin and others that he swore to God that Vladimir Putin was paying Rohrabacher and also Donald Trump. When the recording leaked, the House leadership tried to explain it away by saying it was just an attempt at humor. But McCarthy was serious and Ryan immediately swore everyone present to secrecy.

Some of the lawmakers laughed at McCarthys comment. Then McCarthy quickly added: Swear to God.

Ryan instructed his Republican lieutenants to keep the conversation private, saying: No leaks. ... This is how we know were a real family here.

The remarks remained secret for nearly a year.

With the daily deluge of news and the constant exposure of new damaging facts, its easy to forget little details like the fact that the House leadership suspected Trump and Rohrabacher of being on the Kremlin payroll. They have, however, followed up on the Rohrabacher end of things. Theyve limited his travel, and Rep. Ed Royce, the chairman of the Foreign Affairs Committee, fired Rohrabachers top committee aide, Paul Behrends, because of his ties to pro-Russian lobbyists.

On the other hand, theyve done precious little about Trump.

I want to do a little something here that I think will help you visualize the moment in time when McCarthy said Trump was being paid by Putin and Paul Ryan swore everyone to secrecy. That meeting occurred on 6/15/16, but I want to extend the timeline a bit in both directions so you can see what was going on and put McCarthys comments into their proper context.

Were going to be looking at a pretty consequential two-week period of time.  Its important to know that just prior to the start of our timeline here, on May 26th, Trump finally secured the majority of the GOP delegates he needed to win the nomination. Also, you should know that on June 3rd, WikiLeaks...

Why Politicizing the U.S. Census Is Dangerous "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Let me ask you an honest question. What do you think about this argument? Lets say I tried to convince you that competitive elections are bad for America. That seems counterintuitive, right? Wouldnt it be better if politicians had to earn reelection through performance and they could be easily voted out if they became embroiled in scandal? How might I go about convincing you that other factors outweigh these sensible considerations?

In his 2008 book, Redistricting and Representation: Why Competitive Elections are Bad for America, [Prof. Thomas Brunell] argued that partisan districts packed with like-minded voters actually lead to better representation than ones more evenly split between Democrats and Republicans, because fewer voters in partisan districts cast a vote for a losing candidate. He has also argued that ideologically packed districts should be called fair districts and admits that his stance on competitive elections makes him something of an outlier among political scientists, who largely support competitive elections.

Im tempted not to take that argument seriously at all since Im positive its made in bad faith. But there is at least something within it thats defensible, which is the idea that its a good thing rather than a bad thing when a larger percentage of the electorate in a given district feels like theyre getting the representation that they want.

Taken in isolation, this is an attractive concept. But it fails to account for two other important concepts: legitimacy and disenfranchisement.

What they offer instead is a distinct Republican advantage, which is why Prof. Brunell wrote a book in defense of them.

If you have any doubt about this, read on:

Honoring What You Love "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

I have two stepsons who are in their twenties. When they were teenagers, I noticed that one of their least favorite holiday presents was the iTunes gift card. They could barely feign gratitude and they left the things unused. When I enquired about why they didnt want free music, they explained that they could get all the free music they wanted online, and they didnt need to download it song-by-song but could get whole albums just as easily.

My first thought was that this was some kind of illicit revival of Napster which I thought had been resolved all the way back in 2000 with the resolution of Metallica v. Napster. Peer-to-peer sharing of this type was illegal, so how could my kids be doing this? Soon enough I realized, however, that I was witnessing a generational change and that almost no one their age was buying music anymore.

My next thought was that the legal system had been overwhelmed by digital pirating and that musicians would soon be starving to death.  The problem, I discovered, was so pervasive that there was really no point in me as a parent trying to fight against it.  All that was left was to figure out how it might soon devastate writers.

Of course, the news industry had been staggering from the digital revolution for some time by that point, trying to find a way to avoid giving away its product for free.  They explored paywalls and premium content, all the while trimming payroll and closing foreign desks.  Nothing appeared to work, and unpunished pirating seemed like it would close off or undermine some of the few solutions that were being explored with some success.

The music industry had to adapt, and the patch so far has been for musicians to pretty much give up on selling CDs and instead focus on getting people to pay to see live performances.  They tour more and they charge much more for their concerts.

This is interesting because if basically follows the model of the Grateful Dead. They were an improvisational band that did not perform well in the studio, so they spent less time making albums and more time touring the country, often doing ninety or more shows a year.  They were unique in that they made no effort to keep people from taping and trading recordings of their concerts, and saw it as a way to increase their exposure and popularity.  They didnt charge more for their concerts, instead making up for their lost record sales revenue by having a higher volume of shows.

This past week, I looked into seeing a Dead & Company show in Philadelphia. This is an ensemble that includes three members from the original...

Dead Seven Years, Robert Byrd Lives On "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Senator Robert Byrd of West Virginia would have been one hundred years old today, so it seems like a good time to look back on his career and think about how he is still relevant in our present era. Ira Shapiro has done that in an excellent piece that traces Byrd from his 1917 birth in South Carolina to his death in 2010. As part of that article, Shapiro has a lengthy exploration of the Byrd Rule which I wont try to replicate here. Whats more important is to understand why the rule became necessary, and Shapiro explains that in an admirably concise manner:

Byrds belief in process and procedure was also why he was a key player in producing and enacting the Budget Control and Impoundment Act of 1974. He recognized that if Congress could not produce an overall budget, it would inevitably cede power to the executive branch. He was willing to tolerate a Budget Act that established procedures that were an exception to the normal Senate rules. But when Byrd saw the reconciliation procedure being abused by the Reagan administration, he moved quickly to limit the use of reconciliation by ensuring that it could only be used for budget purposes and not for extraneous matters.

That little paragraph makes it easy to see both why the Trump administration and the Republican congressional leadership have pursued the budget reconciliation process to repeal Obamacare and enact tax reform and why they have found the effort so vexatious. As the Senate became more polarized by party in the 1970s, it became necessary to relax Senate rules to assure that some agreement on a budget could be achieved, because without any agreement on spending priorities, the administration would be forced or enabled to make those decisions unilaterally. As a result, the filibuster was eliminated for budget bills. Of course, this was immediately exploited by senators who saw their goals thwarted by the need to win a supermajority of votes and things were attached to the budget reconciliation bills that could not have passed during regular order.

Byrds solution was to empower the parliamentarian to strike things from reconciliation bills that had no obvious budgetary impact. He also found a way to cut down on shenanigans, like building out legislation that looks affordable in the short term but comes with giant balloon payments down the line. He did this by making sure that budget bills had to balance after ten years. Of course, accomplishing these things through rule-writing may sound easy but it actually required a large amount of intelligence and imagination. Byrd had both in abundance, but even he couldnt anticipate every way in which the rules could be bent to violate the spirit of what he was trying to achieve.

I have written almost incessantly this...

Hes Not Paying Attention To Me!: Extremely Angry Eminem Complains Trump Never Responded To BET Awards Freestyle Diss (AUDIO) "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Once an international rap star revered by fans and music critics alike, Eminem is now a washed-up musician, aiming to capitalize on anti-Trump hysteria propagated by the political and media elite to sell albums.

Sad!

Speaking to Shade 45 on Sirius XM on Friday about his anti-Trump BET freestyle, the 45-year-old rapper said, I was and am still extremely angry. I cant stand that motherfucker.

I feel like hes not paying attention to me! I was kinda waiting for him to say something, and for some reason, he didnt say anything, added Eminem.

Let's Face It, Men Are Pigs "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"


For society, the sexual harassment scandals should be about two things:

1- mending the patriarchal environment we live in to change, over the long-term, the way men think they are entitled to behave

2- (a corollary)- dealing very harshly with instances of men using power relationships to prey on people dependent on them for careers

I used to be an astrologer. I studied it in Amsterdam, took it very seriously. I was good at it too-- really good. It was a gift. But the gift came with a warning: use this gift to further your own material desires and kiss the gift goodbye. So I never charged for my services and I never used my abilities to try to seduce anyone. I can't remember exactly what I did wrong, just that I did do something-- this was like decades ago-- and BOOM! it was gone. I don't know a Gemini from a Mars-Mercury conjunction in Sagittarius any more. No, really, I have books of charts I drew for people and now I not only couldn't draw a chart if my life depended on it, I can't even read them. Fortunately my full-time gig was chef at the time.

Much later I wound up in the music business. Were there men who used their positions of power to seduce aspiring artists? Well... let me think about that for a second. Um... yes, everything single day, in every single way. Kind of horrifying-- and real life in the fast lane. And, yeah, there were some guys who didn't believe in that and didn't do it. (I mostly hung out with those kinds of people, because... who wants to be around a pig too much?)

Theres a Hitch in Trumps Plan to Stick Mick Mulvaney on the CFPB: Its Illegal "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

As soon as Richard Cordray, the current director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, officially resigns which could happen as soon as this week we are told President Donald Trump will choose Mick Mulvaney, the current director of the Office of Management and Budget, to run the CFPB on a temporary basis.

It would be a GOP dream come true. Mulvaney, who once called CFPB a sad, sick joke, would then be able to carry out the long-desired conservative wish to dismantle the agency that safeguards consumers from the deceptions of banks and credit card companies.

Practically every media outlet has carried this report about Mulvaney to CFPB. Theres only one problem: its not Trumps pick to make.

That fact, and expected resistance to that fact inside the White House, could create a titanic legal battle, and a scenario with competing interim directors of the agency, which has become a political football ever since Congress created it in 2010.

Judicial Watch Uncovers New Evidence of FBI Leadership Panicking Over Conflicts of Interest With Clinton Email Investigation "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

On Tuesday, conservative watchdog Judicial Watch released 79 pages of Justice Department records showing FBI leadership discussions about perceived conflicts of interest with the Hillary Clinton email investigation.

According to Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton, the watchdog obtained emails with FOIA lawsuit filed on July 24, 2017. The FOIA was prompted  after the Justice Department officials refused to respond to an October 24, 2016 request.

Judicial Watch reports:

Judicial Watch today released 79 pages of Justice Department documents concerning ethics issues related to FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabes involvement with his wifes political campaign. The documents include an email showing Mrs. McCabe was recruited for a Virginia state senate race in February 2015 by then-Virginia Lieutenant Governor Ralph Northams office.

The news that Clinton used a private email server broke five days later, on March 2, 2015. Five days after that, former Clinton Foundation board member and Democrat party fundraiser, Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe, met with the McCabes. She announced her candidacy on March 12.

Greta Van Susteren Unleashes on Congress Its a Crime to Hide Personal Lawsuits Paid With Taxpayer Money "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Legal analyst and former news anchor for FOX, CNN and MSNBC, Greta Van Susteren unleashed on Congress Tuesday for secretly settling sexual harassment cases with taxpayer money.

Congress has a rampant sexual harassment problem. In fact the problem is so bad that female lawmakers and aides keep a creep list of men who are notorious for lewd behavior.

Rep. Jackie Speier (D-CA) recently told MSNBCs Chuck Todd that taxpayers have paid over $15 million to settle sexual harassment lawsuits against members of Congress!

TAXPAYER MONEY.

It was revealed Monday evening that Democrat Rep John Conyers has been accused of sexual harassment by multiple women. According to affidavits, Conyers used taxpayer money to fly women into D.C. to meet with him in hotel rooms!

CRIMINAL!

Greta Van Susteren tweeted, If you settle (pay) a personal law suit with taxpayer money or company money without telling shareholders,you are committing a crime.

Why are members of Congress above the law? Hard working Americans are paying for their sexual deviancy and kept in the dark! Why are women being abused and intimidated while lawmakers stand by and do nothing?...

Dem Rep. John Conyers Issues Statement Confirming Settlement, Denies Allegations "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

The morning after Rep. John Conyers (D-MI) was hit with sexual harassment claims, the Associated Press went to the lawmakers Detroit home to seek comment. 

Conyers denied the report, claiming he has not settled any sexual harassment complaints with staffers. Hours later, the lawmaker confirmed that he did, in fact, pay a settlement over sexual harassment claims. 

JUST IN: Rep. John Conyers retracts earlier statement to AP, says he was surprised and confused about which allegations. He confirms a settlement but denies the allegations, tweeted BuzzFeeds Paul McLeod.

Daily Beast reports:

Rep. John Conyers (D-MI) confirmed Tuesday that he had paid out a settlement after BuzzFeed News reported that his office paid a woman more than $27,000 as part of a confidentiality agreement related to sexual-harassment complaints. The confirmation retracts an earlier statement he made to the AP denying such a settlement and claiming he was surprised by the accusations. I expressly and vehemently denied the allegations made against me, and continue to do so, he said. My office resolved the allegations with an express denial of liability in order to save all involved from the rigors of protracted litigation. That should not be lost in the narrative. The resolution was not for millions of dollars, but rather for an amount that equated to a reasonable severance payment. The long-time congressman also stated that he would cooperate with a House investigation.

COVER-UP=> Dem Rep John Conyers Used Sneaky Tactic to Secretly Pay Off Sexual Harassment Victims "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

As previously reported, it was revealed Monday evening that Democrat Rep John Conyers has been accused of sexual harassment by multiple women. According to affidavits, Conyers used taxpayer money to fly women into D.C. to meet with him in hotel rooms!

The documents were first provided to BuzzFeed News by Mike Cernovich.

Buzzfeed reported:

Michigan Rep. John Conyers, a Democrat and the longest-serving member of the House of Representatives, settled a wrongful dismissal complaint in 2015 with a former employee who alleged she was fired because she would not succumb to [his] sexual advances.

Buzzfeed also reported that staffers were tasked with flying women in for Conyers using Congressional resources!

Former employees also said that Conyers made it very clear that if they performed personal favors it would lead to salary increases and promotions. It was well known Conyers was having affairs with multiple female staffers. He often made sexual advances towards women and grew angry if they brought their husbands around.

Conyers denies the allegations, however; he knew exactly what he was doing and used sneaky tactics to deliberately cover up the settlements to various women.

In one case, Conyers paid a woman a settlement through payroll (via taxpayer money) as if she were a temporary employee. Buzzfeed explains:

In this case, one of Conyers former employees was offered a settlement, in exchange for her silence, that would be paid out of Conyers taxpayer-funded office budget. His office would rehire the woman as a temporary employee despite her being directed not to come into the office or do any actual work, according to the document. The complainant would receive a total payment of $27,111.75 over the three months, after which point she would be removed from the payroll, according to the document.

Will Progressive Republicans Make A Comeback? The Competition Could Do Wonders For The Democratic Party "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"




Blue America has always been more than aware of the failings of the Democratic Party. At a time when other progressive organizations were petrified of bucking the establishment too hard, we were working, successfully, to dislodge entrenched corrupt conservative Democratic incumbents like Al Wynn (MD), Tim Holden (PA) and Sylvester Reyes (TX), who were all replaced-- with progressives Donna Edwards, Matt Cartwright and Beto O'Rourke. But we've never endorsed a Republican. Except once, since we've come along in 2005, the Republican candidate was always the greater of two evils. And even in that "once," all we did was point out that Steve Pestka, the anti-choice homophobic asshole the Michigan Democratic Party had decided to run against libertarian Justin Amash, was a worse candidate than Amash. In fact, Michigan's whackadoodle anti-choice fascists decided to endorse putative Democrat Pestka instead of Republican Amash!

Let's not kid ourselves; whatever heritage of progressivism the GOP once had-- from Lincoln to Teddy Roosevelt, Tom Dewey, Jacob Javits, Nelson Rockefeller, Charles Percy, Mark Hatfield, Margaret Chase Smith, Charles Mathias and John Lindsay-- somewhere between the mass migration of Southern Democratic racists to the GOP and the ascendency of the Goldwater wing of the Republican Party, the GOP turned into a hardcore vehicle for hard core conservatism, gross corruption and, more recently, perhaps inevitably, a kind of neo-fascism, while the Democratic Party establishment moved right and away from it's own labor roots and more in a corporatist/Clintonian direction.

Will Blue America ever endorse a Republican? Who knows? I don't foresee it, but... there's an interesting movement on the fringe of the left. Some of the idealistic-- and impatient-- activists who had backed Bernie are having a look at the GOP as a vehicle to... well, to what is the question of course, but let's not go there quite yet. Let's start with the video up top, a monologue by freshly-minted Cincinnati faux-Republican Samuel Ronan.

Taking a Knee, Keeping Hope Alive "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Dear Reverend Billy,

I cant believe its been one year since Trump was elected. It feels like we fell through a collective wormhole into an alternate universe. The Womens March in January was very encouraging, but since then the resistance seems to have petered out at least it doesnt feel like it has the same momentum it did in the beginning. Do you have any shreds of hope to offer?

Burt, Greenpoint

Well, Burt, the date on your letter precedes the November 7 elections, the triumph of Jenny Durkan, an out lesbian, in the Seattle mayors race and of Danica Roem, a transgender person, who was elected to the House of Delegates in Virginia. Ravinder Bhalla is now the Sikh mayor of Hoboken.  Andrea Jenkins, the Minneapolis City Council-bound winner, is the first black transgender woman elected to public office in the United States. Maybe she can get the killer of Philando Castile into prison.

Point is: Many of the get-out-the-voters in this revolution attended their local Womens March. They got the lesson taught by the millions of people with hand-made pussy caps on that January day: the future is all of us and the future is now.

These wins are a glorious first step, but the trouble is that they are Democrats. That party has a crisis going on. Is it the party of Wall Street bankers or is it the party of all of us? The big banks are financing climate change, gentrification and war. With your impatience, Burt, youre saying that the resistance seems to have petered out just as this new generation is beginning to etch its way into office. It wont be so easy to kick the offshore 1 percenters out of their posts, but this years elections were a start. Lets roll up our sleeves and get to work, because we have a long way to go.

Worst President Ever: Obamas Al Qaeda Is on the Run Line Was a Complete Lie and He Knew It (VIDEO) "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Barack Obama was likely the most dishonest president in US history.

After eight years of Obama we put together a list of his five biggest and most outlandish lies.

1.) If you like your insurance plan, you can keep your insurance plan
Number of mentions: 37 times

As Obama was pushing the tremendously unpopular legislation now known as Obamacare, at least 37 different times he promised that If you like your insurance plan you can keep your insurance plan. Even the liberal media could not ignore it. This was lie of the year in 2013. After cancellation letters were sent to 4 million Americans, the public finally realized his breezy assurances were wrong.

2.) With Obamacare we will reduce your insurance premiums by $2,500, per family per year
Number of mentions: At least 22 times

Barack Obama promised repeatedly that Obamacare would reduce your premiums by $2,500 per year. It was a lie. The exact opposite happened. Average premiums have skyrocketed, for some groups as much as 78 percent.

3.) I cannot pass amnesty through executive action I am not a dictator
Number of mentions: At least 22 times

At least 22 times Obama said he couldnt do executive amnesty himself. Then he implemented an immunity scheme via executive fiat. In bypassing Congress, Obama blatantly ignored the rule of law that is the foundation of our democracy and violated his presidential oath to uphold the laws of this land.

4.) Not one dime of Obamacare will go for abortions

1,036 Obamacare plans cover abortions.

In office for 40 years, hes president pro tempore of the Senate and chairs the powerful committee writing the Senate GOPs tax plan. Hes using that perch, he explained last week, so that everybody can have the same chance he did.

As the Senate put the finishing touches on its tax bill in his Finance Committee last week, Hatch got into it with Ohio Democratic Sen. Sherrod Brown, who was lambasting the bill as a giveaway for the rich.

I come from the poor people. And Ive been here working my whole entire stinkin career for people who dont have a chance. And I really resent anyone saying that Im just doing this for the rich. Gimme a break, Hatch told Brown. I come from the lower middle class originally. We didnt have anything. So dont spew that stuff on me. I get a little tired of that crap.

Hatch, satisfied with the exchange, shared a video of it on social media, adding a few narrative details.

Hatch went to to the University of Pittsburgh Law School on a scholarship when tuition there ranged from $1,100 to $1,300 per year.

The bottom tax rate in 1960 was 20 percent, which would have put Hatchs tax bill at around $780 for the waiver. In an interview with the local Utah press in 2015, the senator described his ordeal, which at the time was tax-free. It was a blessing to me that I had that honors s...

Proof in the Age of Doubt "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

After the 2016 presidential election, I was one of many who spontaneously posted an all-black image to social media. In the immediate aftermath of Trumps victory, there was a need to express something along with the sense that nothing could express that mix of fear, frustration and grief that hit last Nov. 9. An all-black image with its deathly/funereal associations was all that fit.

Brooklyn-based artist Robert Longo (born 1953) may have been acting on similar impulses when he made Untitled (Obama Leaving) (2017). The piece, like most of his work, is a large-scale charcoal drawing. One of its paired panels shows Barack Obama and his entourage walking off an airport tarmac, the ex-Presidents facial expression the combination of hope and resignation that he so often wore. The second panel, though, is pure darkness the whole sheet of paper covered with charcoal dust. The juxtaposition suggests a slight movement through time, like a comic-book page or film stills: from a grim but palpable present to some unimaginable future.

This work is part of Proof, currently on view at the Brooklyn Museum, which puts Longos work alongside that of Sergei Eisenstein and Francisco Goya. The Brooklyn Museum has lately presented a streak of progressive-minded, socially conscious exhibitions. This show is part of that, but it comes to its politics in a stranger, more elliptical way. Rather than trying to rally viewers around any particular cause, it asks them to question the nature of proof the ways reality is mediated, codified, distorted and dramatized. Dramatized, especially: The art is almost all striking, severe imagery, delivering its various looming horrors in stark black and white.

The show begins with Sergei Eisenstein (1898-1948), the gifted Russian filmmaker who defined the powers of cinematic montage, while also chronicling Soviet history in films like Battleship Potemkin (1925) and October (Ten Days that Shook the World) (1927-28). Seven of his films are displayed simultaneously, with no sound or titles, and slowed to a crawl: Whats left are his cinematographic images which, frame by frame, convey a wondrously melodramatic sort of old-fashioned pathos.

Right-Wing Snowflake Roy Moore Is Now Threatening To Sue Alabama's 3 Biggest Newspapers For Exposing Him "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"


I have no idea how many Alabama voters even read newspapers, let alone factor their endorsements into their decision-making, but the 3 biggest newspapers in Alabama have a message for the voters there: "Stand for decency; reject Roy Moore." All three-- the Birmingham News, the Mobile Press-Register and the Huntsville Times-- endorsed Democrat Doug Jones. And they all put the endorsement on the front page of the Sunday papers. The 3 share the state's top website, AL.com and they're featuring it as well. The papers had already pointed out that Moore is ""grossly unfit" to represent the state in the Senate but this was the first time they endorsed Jones. Moore says he's suing them. Excerpts from the editorial:
This election is a turning point for women in Alabama. A chance to make their voices heard in a state that has silenced them for too long.

The accusations against Roy Moore have been horrifying, but not shocking.

Every day new allegations arise that illustrate a pattern of a man in his 30s strutting through town like the cock of the walk, courting and preying on young women and girls. And though Roy Moore has denied the accusations of these women, his own platform and record is hostile to so many Alabamians.

Unlike the national party, the Alabama Republican establishment has chosen to stand by him, attacking and belittling the brave women who have come forward.

A Greek Tragedy Foretold "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Along with French economist Thomas Piketty, former Greek finance minister Yanis Varoufakis is making economics sexy again. Journalists enjoyed snapping photos of Varoufakis, clad in a black leather coat, commuting to the finance ministrys offices on his Yamaha motorcycle. But his short tenure in the Greek government was marked by clashes with the countrys creditors and ultimately with the leadership of Syriza, the left-wing party that came to power in Greece in early 2015.

Varoufakis, a self-described erratic Marxist, also happens to be a gifted storyteller who can deftly relate personal experiences to larger themes without sacrificing analytical rigor. Its not something you would expect to find in your average finance minister, but he is no ordinary government bureaucrat.

He opens Adults in the Room, his memoir about his short time in government, by describing a late-night meeting in a Washington bar in which former U.S. Treasury Secretary Larry Summers asks him if he would behave as an insider or outsider. It is a sly narrative construct, as Varoufakis tells all from the outsider-insider perspective and recounts the negotiations over Greeces debt with the Troika: the International Monetary Fund, the European Commission and the European Central Bank (ECB).

Varoufakis names the individual actors in the Greek tragedy, but where he really shines is in explaining the central economic and political forces that created Europes economic crisis.

Greeces population is 10.75 million but its public debt is around 330 billion euros ($390 billion). He argues that Greece is in a modern-day debtors prison and cannot pay its sovereign debt without a serious restructuring. Adults in the Room takes pains to describe his attempts to end the countrys fiscal waterboarding at the hands of the Troika. Varoufakis demanded new debt terms and some debt cancellation haircuts for the banks and other institutions that held Greeces bonds. One problem was that the ECBs charter explicitly prohibited debt cancellation and bailouts, thus stacking the deck against the debtor nation.

An outsiders tale of crashing the ultimate insiders club.

Once in power, Varoufakis got creative. He offered to convert Greeces unsustainable debt payments to perpetual bonds that paid lower but perpetual interest, and the country would be able to choose when to pay off the principal, sometime in the distant future. Another novel but workable idea was that Greece would swap its largest debt obligations for new 30-year bonds that had crucial provisions: Annual payments would be suspended until Greeces national income increased, and would then be linked to its economic growth.

How Game Can Get in the Way of Getting Laid "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

This is a guest post by Kid Strangelove. Kid originally published this article at his own blog on October 12, 2010, but he deleted the site a while ago so he could focus on other projects. He asked me if Id be willing to re-post some of his articles on my blog and I said yes.

Ever get flaked on by a girl?

Of course you have. Its normal. Its human nature.

Sometimes flaking can be disheartening, sometimes you just ignore it and move on, and sometimes you try to learn from your mistakes. But rarely do you get a chance to find out straight from the source what you did wrong, or what she thought of you.

I mean, a flake is the ultimate form of rejection: apathy. Its like in the pro wrestling world: the best guys are the guys the audience either cheers the loudest or completely shits on with boos, but the guys that you dont hear about are the guys that just simply get no reaction, positive or negative, whatsoever.

Sorry, Bobby. They tried.

Bumping into a former flake just doesnt happen every single day, but when it does, man does it feel enlightening (or embarrassing or both).

Flashback: Sex Abuser Charlie Rose Shames Steve Bannon and Ridicules President Trump for Billy Bush Tape (Video) "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Guest post by Joe Hoft

A few months ago CBS Anchor Charlie Rose interviewed former President Trump Campaign Strategist Steve Bannon on 60 Minutes.

During the interview the Billy Bush tape was discussed where President Trump was recorded saying that women let him grab them anywhere since hes a celebrity. The video was years old when presented on all the mainstream media (MSM) outlets late in the campaign just a few weeks before the election.

President Trump and Steve Bannon responded to the Bush tape by having a press conference in St. Louis a few days later on a Sunday shortly before the 2nd debate with Hillary Clinton.

President Trump did what no politician has ever done he hit back HARD and Bannon had much to do with it.

On that Sunday President Trump invited the media to a pre-debate presser.  The media was non- stop about the video claiming Trump was finished.  The reporters thought they were going to a pre-debate photo op with Donald Trump.  They walked in on Trump sitting with Clinton rape victims.  Trump held a presser with Paula Jones, Kathy Shelton, Juanita Broaddrick & Kathleen Willey

TRUMP PUNKED THE PRESS!

This all occurred a few hours before the 2nd debate.  The liberal MSM thought again that they had finally knocked Donald Trump out of the race.  This was their October surprise.  What the MSM could not see was that the Clinton campaign could not win an argument about abusing women.  Bill Clinton, the Democrat candidates husband, was the worlds most notorious womanizer and Trump reminded us all that this was the fact.

In the 60 minutes interview with Bannon, Charlie Rose revisited the Billy Bush tape.  He shamed Bannon for his support of candidate Trump during this time and ridiculed President Trump for the video when interviewing Bannon.

Rose started a segment of the interview off with a comment to Bannon that Americans do care about respect for women.   There was some discussion then Rose asked Bannon in a confronting manner, Are you trying to destroy somebody when you...

CNN Sister Network TBS Gives Show to Vile Trump Assassin Wannabe Snoop Dogg "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

TBS, the sister cable network to CNN, is airing a primetime TV show hosted by rapper Snoop Dogg even though he has repeatedly promoted the assassination of President Donald Trump. Dogg also attacked the President in a vile video released Mondaythe day before Doggs show, a reboot of the game show The Jokers Wild, is set to air a new episode.

Screen image from March 2017 of TBS host Snoop Dogg acting out assassinating President Trump.

In a video released in March, Dogg, aka Calvin Broadus, Jr., acted out the assassination of President Trump. CNN reported on the video at the time.

At the beginning of November, Dogg released an album cover showing him standing over an American flag draped corpse with a toe tag that prominently said, TRUMP.

Variety reported Dogg pulled the image and released the album with a different cover.

The rappers publicist told Variety his album has already been released with a different cover. The new graphic features a blue baseball cap reading, Make America Crip Again, clearly alluding to Trumps red hats with his Make America Great Again campaign slogan. The EPs original artwork appears to be a reference to Ice Cubes 1991 album Death Certificate, which showed the rapper standing over the corpse of Uncle Sam.

On Monday, Dogg released a profanity-laced rant attacking Trump over his comments about NFL player Marshawn Lynch not standing for the National Anthem in Mexico and LaVar Ball over his statements dissing Trump about helping free his shoplifting UCLA basketball player son from China.

Democrat Rep John Conyers Gets SAVAGED on Twitter Following Sexual Harassment Revelation "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Americans are enraged over taxpayer money being used to pay for the sins on Congressmen.

It was revealed Monday evening that one Congressman who settled a harassment suit in 2015 was Democrat Rep John Conyers. According to affidavits, Conyers used taxpayer money to fly women into D.C. to meet with him in hotel rooms!

The documents were first provided to BuzzFeed News by Mike Cernovich.

Buzzfeed reports:

Michigan Rep. John Conyers, a Democrat and the longest-serving member of the House of Representatives, settled a wrongful dismissal complaint in 2015 with a former employee who alleged she was fired because she would not succumb to [his] sexual advances.

Buzzfeed also reported that staffers were tasked with flying women in for Conyers using Congressional resources!

Former employees also said that Conyers made it very clear that if they performed personal favors it would lead to salary increases and promotions. It was well known Conyers was having affairs with multiple female staffers. He often made sexual advances towards women and grew angry if they brought their husbands around.

Even more egregious, Conyers victims were paid a settlement in exchange for their silence out of taxpayer money after a long, daunting process.

John Boehner was House Speaker when these settlements were made. Buzzfeed reached out to his spox and they have not responded with comment.

The Secret Lives Of Republicans-- In The "O" States, Ohio And Oklahoma "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Are ALL ultra-conservative Republican state legislators child rapists?

Last week I professed bewilderment as to why Ohio state Rep and rising star Wes Goodman-- heir apparent to Jim Jordan-- faced political erasure after he was caught having consensual sex with another adult male in his district office. If Republicans fired every officeholder guilty of gross hypocrisy, there would be virtually no Republican officeholders left. Sure, Goodman, was a hypocrite for living in the closet while wracking up an anti-LGBT record but there are dozens of Republicans in the same boat, including Mitch McConnell (R-KY), Lindsey Graham (R-SC), Patrick McHenry (R-NC), David Young (R-IA), to name a few prominent ones. But Ohio Republicans didn't force Goodman to quit over the hypocrisy. Fondling a supporter's teenage son without the kid's consent is a much bigger deal.

Over the weekend, the backstory came tumbling out of Goodman's closet: this was no one-time faux pas-- he led secret gay life, made unwelcome advances to younger men. Jackie Borchardt reporting: "In public, Wesley Goodman was an up-and-coming conservative who championed pro-family and anti-LGBT causes and aspired to someday run for Congress.

It is strange how close we are to people we have never met. It is no more than six degrees of separation in most cases.

There is a parlor game on this: the Kevin Bacon game. Name a movie. Then get to Kevin Bacon within six steps. Sometimes it is far fewer than six.

www.GaryNorth.com site member posted this.

As a member of the BMW Club of Northern California, I met some unusual people. Dick (Richard) Van Dusen was among them. He invited me to visit his home to meet his family. He did so with this invitation, We dont have much, but we will share what we have.We visited back and forth many times over the next couple of years. His middle daughter was quite skilled at sewing. I once bought her a hunk of fabric and in just over an hour, she was wearing the pants made from it. The younger daughter, Julie, really liked me and was about 9 at the time.

One Sunday I was visiting the family and a school bus drove into the yard. Out came a bunch of hippy types. Two guys and 8-10 young women. One guy, Charlie, was clearly the head of the group. It was obvious that they all worshipped him. He was so weird and the relationships so sick that I made an excuse and left after a couple of hours. He had visited the family several times over the years. I didnt recall names, as I just pushed aside this bunch of crazies. The hippie era was full of way out groups, so this wasnt so unusual.

A few months later, Dick reminded me of that group. He told me that they were in the news for having killed Sharon Tate. He was quite appalled and shaken. Charlie had given a diamond ring to Julie, which I suppose she still has today.

Your Lower and Lower Standard of Living "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Several times over my 29 years in Congress I have wondered whether there are any fiscal conservatives at the Pentagon.

It seems that the Defense Department is just like every other gigantic bureaucracy. When it comes to money, the refrain is always more, more, more.

On November 14, the House passed what one Capitol Hill paper described as a $700 billion compromise defense bill.  It was $80 billion over the budget caps and many billions more than even President Trump had requested.

I opposed almost all the major initiatives of the Obama administration. But it was false to say that the Defense Department was depleted or eviscerated during those years, or that now we must rebuild the military.

In fact, public relations experts in future years should conduct studies about how the Defense Department has been able to convince the public it has been cut when it is getting more money than ever.

Defense Department appropriations have more than doubled since 2000. In addition, the Department has gotten extra billions in several supplemental or emergency appropriation bills.

The military construction bill is a separate bill that has added another $109.5 billion over the last 10 years. It would be hard to find any U.S. military base any place in the world that has not had several new buildings constructed over the last few years.

Time to buy old US gold coins

In fiscal year 2016, we spent over $177 billion on new equipment, guns, tanks, etc. We have spent similar amounts for many years. Most of this equipment does not wear out or have to be replaced after just one year.

It is ironic that the only President in the last 60 or 70 years who has tried to rein in defense spending is the only President in that period who spent most of his career in the military.

In Evan Thomas book, Ikes Bluff, when told by his top staffer that he could not reduce defense spending, President Eisenhower said if he gave another star to every general who cut his budget, there would be such a rush to cut costs youll have to get out of the way.

The book also quotes Eisenhower as saying Heaven help us if we ever have a President who doesnt know as much about the military as I do.

Therein lies an explanation for a big part of what has caused much excessive and/or wasteful defense spending and, the willingness, even at times eagerness, to go to war and support permanent, never-ending wars.

Only 18% of the current Congress has ever served in any branch of our military. Members are afraid if they do not vote for an...

The End Is Near "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

The storyline began with Weinstein and moved, as sure as day follows night, to Clinton.

And now this:

Bill Clinton Faces Sexual Assault Accusations From Four More Women

the women allege the former president assaulted them in the early 2000s, when Clinton was working with playboy billionaire investor Ron Burkle.

They say there is no evidence that Burkle knew anything about the alleged assaults.  I say that there is:

Clinton and Burkle used to travel together on Burkles private jet, which earned the reprehensible nickname Air F*** One. All of the women are former employees of Burkle who said Clinton took advantage of his power over them.

Were Fighting For Our Lives and Liberty "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

More than three-and-a-half years since the so-called Battle of Bunkerville, Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy, his two sons, and a fourth defendant are facing a jury of their peers in a Las Vegas courtroom.

As opening statements kicked off this week, prosecutors said the Bundy camp defied the rule of law by threat of violence and intimidation, while defense attorneys called the nearly weeklong standoff in April 2014 a legal protest against federal government overreach.

The only thing (Bundy) wanted to do was raise cattle, just like his grandfather did, and his dad did, defense attorney Bret Whipple said in his opening presentation, according to Reuters.

Cliven Bundys cattle, and the lands they roamed, represent the root cause of the Bunkerville standoff, which was the culmination of a decades-long dispute between Bundy and the Bureau of Land Management. Before 1993, Bundy paid the federal government land grazing fees. But then Bundy took issue with the governments tightened ranch restrictions meant to protect the endangered desert tortoise.

In the end, BLM agents retreated, and no shots were fired. But 19 people have been arrested in connection with the standoff. Some have pleaded guilty, others have been found guilty in other trials, and others still have been exonerated or taken plea deals with what are expected to be light sentences.

On Tuesday, Acting U.S. Attorney Steven Myhre cast the 71-year-old Bundy, his two sons Ryan and Ammon, and co-defendant Ryan Payne as members of a conspiracy meant to impede law enforcements efforts to execute a court order.

Countering that, Defense attorney Whipple showed a video of a federal agent throwing Bundys...

Why Is the US Helping Saudi Arabia "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Its remarkable that whenever you read an article about Yemen in the mainstream media, the central role of Saudi Arabia and the United States in the tragedy is glossed over or completely ignored. A recent Washington Post article purporting to tell us how things got so bad explains to us that, its a complicated story involving warring regional superpowers, terrorism, oil, and an impending climate catastrophe.

No, Washington Post, its simpler than that. The tragedy in Yemen is the result of foreign military intervention in the internal affairs of that country. It started with the Arab Spring which had all the fingerprints of State Department meddling, and it escalated with 2015s unprovoked Saudi attack on the country to re-install Riyadhs preferred leader. Thousands of innocent civilians have been killed and millions more are at risk as starvation and cholera rage.

We are told that US foreign policy should reflect American values. So how can Washington support Saudi Arabia a tyrannical state with one of the worst human rights record on earth as it commits by what any measure is a genocide against the Yemeni people? The UN undersecretary-general for humanitarian affairs warned just last week that Yemen faces the largest famine the world has seen for many decades with millions of victims. The Red Cross has just estimated that a million people are vulnerable in the cholera epidemic that rages through Yemen.

Time to buy old US gold coins

The United States is backing Saudi aggression against Yemen by cooperating in every way with the Saudi military. Targeting, intelligence, weapons sales, and more. The US is a partner in Saudi Arabias Yemen crimes.

Does holding hands with Saudi Arabia as it slaughters Yemeni children really reflect American values? Is anyone even playing attention?

The claim that we are fighting al-Qaeda in Yemen and thus our involvement is covered under the post-9/11 authorization for the use of force is without merit. In fact it has been reported numerous times in the mainstream media that US intervention on behalf of the Saudis in Yemen is actually a boost to al-Qaeda in the country. Al-Qaeda is at war with the Houthis who had taken control of much of the country because the Houthis practice a form of Shia Islam they claim is tied to Iran. We are fighting on the same side as al-Qaeda in Yemen.

Cowboys, Truckers, and Us "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Being a trucker especially an owner-operator used to be a lot like being a cowboy was back in the 1800s.

On your own timetable, beholden to none so long as the cows (or the cargo) got where they needed to be on time. Independent, free.

Which, naturally, is why both avocations had to be stomped.

Cowboys became ranch hands, no longer free to roam.

But at least they arent subject to 24-7 recording of their doings  as truckers soon will be. It will be done via something called an Electronic Logging Device (ELD) which is basically a mobile, in-truck Panopticon a rig for the rig that sees all and knows all and narcs all, to the Appropriate Authorities.

It will tell drivers when to stop driving even if they are just a couple of miles away from their destination. And they must stop. No matter how needless or inconvenient.

If they do not . . .

The ELDs, of course, will not be optional.

Time to buy old US gold coins

They will become mandatory for all new trucks about a month from now on Dec. 18 when a new federal fatwa goes into effect.

Unless, as the result of some last-minute spasm of concern for our ever-diminishing liberties, someone puts a legislative stop to it.

One such someone is Republican Rep. Brian Babin of Texas, who wrote a bill (H.R. 3282) that would do just that but. Give him credit for trying. But like the effort to get rid of Obamacare its more about talking points than actually doing something about it. Because most Republicans might as well be Democrats, or the reverse. The one party always seeks the same things more power, more control.

Trumps nominee for oberbefehlshaber der Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, Raymond Martinez, has already indicated he supports the ELD mandate. See? Voting matters . . .

The truckers, of course, will get to pay for the technology which will be used to treat them like home-release criminals and those people at least get free ankle bracelets (well, free in the sense that they are paid for by taxpayers).

Cops Can Get Your DNA "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Sending a sample of your DNA through the post may seem like a harmless and novel way of tracing your ancestry, and millions of Americans have already done so, but there is a more sinister side to this relatively new enterprise.

If youre suspected of a crime police can, if they have a warrant, request access to your DNA profile from both the Ancestry and 23andMe websites. The latter has received five requests for customer information from law enforcement, although the company says it didnt comply with any of these requests.

As the 5 requests resulting in zero information provided indicates, we resist all of these requests. For perspective, 5 requests with over 3 million customers are 0.0002% worth of requests in 11 years. Thats less than rare, 23andMe spokesman Andy Kill told RT.com.

However, the company stressed to RT.com that these requests were not related to DNA profiles rather they were all with regards to things like account data that could be useful in credit card fraud investigations.

USAID and Wall Street "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

In 1928 when the US-based United Fruit Company now known as Chiquita Brands International faced labor issues in Colombia, it had at its disposal Colombian troops which gunned down hundreds of strikers to maintain production and profits.

Ensuring that Colombia protected American interests was the US State Department who hosted company representatives at the US embassy in Bogot, which in turn was in contact with Washington.

The United Fruit Companys actions in Colombia was far from an isolated incident. US Marine Corps General Smedley Butler would write a book regarding his personal, first-hand experience in fighting wars on multiple continents for oil companies, bankers, and fruit companies.

Nearly a century ago large corporate interests already possessed full control over the mechanisms of American governance, determining its domestic and foreign policy, and readily using the nations military might for their own personal gain across the globe.

The US Chamber of Commerce on its own website admits it is a lobbying organization and while it claims it represents millions of businesses big and small it is an organization dominated by, and existing solely for it largest members.

These include Chevron, Citi, Coco-Cola, Chevrolet, McDonalds, Ford, Dow, Exxon, Honeywell, Proctor & Gamble, Visa, Yum, Monsanto, and many more.

And while there is nothing inherently wrong with a lobbying organization, or US companies doing business abroad, it is what this particular lobbying organization does with its immense, concentrated, and unwarranted influence.

Representing not only the largest corporations in the United States, but also some of the largest corporations on Earth, the US Chamber of Commerce today just as United Fruit did nearly a century ago has direct access to the levers of US governance.

The US State Department today just as it did in Bogot in 1928 represents American interests, understood as being synonymous with corporate interests. It is through the US State Department that organizations like the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and the National Endowment for Democracy (NED) receive their funding and directives.

Whats the #1 Supplement Recommended by Cardiologists? "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

By Dr. Mercola

According to the industry publication New Hope,1 coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) and the reduced version, ubiquinol, are among the most popular supplements for mitochondrial health. Between 2000 and 2016, the number of Americans using CoQ10 increased from 2 million to 24 million, and the number of brands featuring CoQ10 has increased from 18 brands to 125.

This rapid growth suggests people are becoming increasingly familiar with the importance of mitochondrial health, which is great news. Even better, a recent poll2,3 reveals CoQ10 is now also the No. 1 supplement recommended by cardiologists for all patients. For years, Ive warned that anyone taking a statin drug to lower their cholesterol really must take a CoQ10 supplement or better yet, ubiquinol, which is the active, reduced form to protect their health, especially their heart health.

In the past, few doctors, including cardiologists, would warn their patients of the fact that statins deplete your body of CoQ10 (and other important nutrients, including vitamin D). It appears this may now be slowly changing. Your body also produces less ubiquinol with advancing age, which is why supplementation is recommended even if youre not on a statin drug.

Hate Waiting at the Luggage Carousel? "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Air travel involves plenty of waiting, from standing in long security lines to preparing for takeoff. And even after you land, your trip is stalled until you locate your luggage on the carousel. Luckily for impatient fliers, there are several ways to game the system and ensure a speedy suitcase delivery once you step off the plane, according to Travel + Leisure.

To score true VIP luggage treatment, ask the representative behind the check-in counter if they can attach a fragile sticker to your bag. Suitcases with these kinds of labels are often loaded last and unloaded first. (Plus, they receive the type of kid-glove treatment that ultimately helps them last longer.)

Semi-Automatic, Revolver, Caliber, Cartridges "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

What do you really need to know before buying a gun? Last week, in the first installment of our series, we talked about some of the things you needed to think about, like how you plan to be using it and some basic definitions. But theres a lot more to buying a gun that will work well for you than understanding what the words mean.

So, lets move on to Part 2 of our Monday GunDay guest series by Steve Candidus, who has generously written these articles to make choosing a firearm easier.

What You Need to Know When Buying a Gun

By Steve Candidus

Revolvers vs. Semi-Automatics

Lets start with an important note your ammunition is not called bullets that is what exits the barrel. The complete bullet, powder, and brass or aluminum case, is called a cartridge or round.

Revolvers

Instant Access to Current Spot Prices & Interactive Charts

A revolver, sometimes called a wheel gun, has a cylinder typically holding five or six rounds. A semi-automatic is flatter in profile and typically holds more ammunition.  It fires a bullet each time the trigger is pulled, and extracts and ejects the spent cartridge case from the firing chamber, re-cocks the firing mechanism, and loads a new cartridge into the firing chamber.

Revolvers do not come with a safety. The trigger pull is longer and it takes more effort to fire them and thus acts as a safety sort of. Revolvers come in sizes ranging from small pocket size guns to large heavy hunting guns. They are a good choice for home defense as their extra weight is actually an advantage. The weight absorbs more of the felt recoil.

They are loaded by releasing the cylinder button to the rear of the cylinder and swinging the cylinder out exposing the cartridges. By pushing on the cylinder rod that is located under the barrel when closed and in the center of the cylinder the rounds will be pushed out.

Cylinders can be reloaded either one at a time or with gadgets called speed loaders. These are plastic devices in the exact dimension of the cartridges in the cylinder and are held in place internally by small clips. By simply dropping the rounds into the cylinder and releasing the hold mechanism (a twist or a push) the entire cylinder is loaded very quickly.

Semi-Automatics

Semi-Automatics, referred to as semi-autos, are thinner in profile and often carry more ammunition than revolvers.

Note that although some refer to them as autos they are still not what is calle...

Upsurge in Big Earthquakes for 2018 "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Scientists have warned there could be a big increase in numbers of devastating earthquakes around the world next year. They believe variations in the speed of Earths rotation could trigger intense seismic activity, particularly in heavily populated tropical regions.

Although such fluctuations in rotation are small changing the length of the day by a millisecond they could still be implicated in the release of vast amounts of underground energy, it is argued.

The link between Earths rotation and seismic activity was highlighted last month in a paper by Roger Bilham of the University of Colorado in Boulder and Rebecca Bendick of the University of Montana in Missoula presented at the annual meeting of the Geological Society of America.

The correlation between Earths rotation and earthquake activity is strong and suggests there is going to be an increase in numbers of intense earthquakes next year, Bilham told the Observer last week.

In their study, Bilham and Bendick looked at earthquakes of magnitude 7 and greater that had occurred since 1900. Major earthquakes have been well recorded for more than a century and that gives us a good record to study, said Bilham.

Instant Access to Current Spot Prices & Interactive Charts

They found five periods when there had been significantly higher numbers of large earthquakes compared with other times. In these periods, there were between 25 to 30 intense earthquakes a year, said Bilham. The rest of the time the average figure was around 15 major earthquakes a year.

The researchers searched to find correlations between these periods of intense seismic activity and other factors and discovered that when Earths rotation decreased slightly it was followed by periods of increased numbers of intense earthquakes. The rotation of the Earth does change slightly by a millisecond a day sometimes and that can be measured very accurately by atomic clocks, said Bilham.

Republican Judge Roy Moore released testimony Monday night that proves far left Attorney Gloria Allred, accuser Beverly Nelson and the national media were lying about the allegations against Judge Roy Moore.

The Moore campaign published a report on Monday that shows the accusers, Gloria Allred and Beverly Nelson, were not telling the truth on the accusations against Judge Moore.

 

Gloria Allred was lying and so was the national media.

From the report:

1.) The Olde Hickory House required employees to be at least 16.  Beverly Nelson claims she was 15 when she started.

2.) The restaurants dumpsters were on the side of the building and not in back as Nelson claimed.

3.) A former employee says the restaurant NEVER closed at 11 PM as Nelson claimed and at midnight on most nights.

4.) Customers at the counter were served by the bartender or cook and not by any waitress.

5.) The witnesses claim they have shared this information with several news outlets but they have refused to report the truth!

More Rhonda Ledbetter, who worked at the restaurant at the time, hesitated to come forward but she said, As a moral and ethical person, she had to come forward.  Rhonda said she never remembered ANYONE coming into the restaurant in a suit and that Roy Moore NEVER came into the restaurant.

Review: Shadow World Documentary Exposes Business Of War Based On Greed "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

In his first year in office, President Donald Trump has earnestly played the role of salesman-in-chief for United States arms manufacturers.

The U.S. accounts for more than half the worlds annual arms deals. Trump may make it much easier for the government to sell weapons by enlisting the Pentagon and State Department to more aggressively peddle the products of U.S. arms manufacturers. His administration also has proposals and plans in the works to make nuclear weapons more usable, with Lockheed Martin and Raytheon each working on prototypes of a delivery system for future nukes.

Trumps actions reinforce all the most profoundly disturbing aspects of Shadow World, a documentary based on Andrew Feinsteins book on the global arms trade that premiered on PBS at 9:30 pm ET.

Feinstein was once an African National Congress (ANC) member of South Africas Parliament. As he recounts in the film, Nelson Mandelas successor, Thabo Mbeki, spent $10 billion on weapons. Three hundred million dollars was spent on bribes to senior politicians, officials, and military officers. At the same time, Mbeki claimed there were no funds for developing life-saving medications for 6 million South Africans suffering from HIV/AIDS.

The financial oversight committee on which I was the ranking ANC member started to investigate the deal and the corruption. The ANC leadership instructed me to stop the investigation, Feinstein said in an interview with ITVS/Independent Lens interactive editor Craig Phillips. When I refused, they thwarted the investigation, including removing me from the committee and then forcing me out of Parliament.

As Feinstein wrote in his first book on corruption in South Africa, he took an interest in global defense contractors, especially how they were propped up by their own governments. He recognized there was no comprehensive book on the subject and developed the Shadow World project.

The film manages to cover quite a bit of history from President Ronald Reagan to President Barack Obama. Commentators featured in the film also reach back before to reference developments that happened with CIA covert operations in the 1950s to the 1970s. And President Richard Nixons disdain for diplomacy is highlighted through a clip of Nixon expressing the urge to use nuclear weapons.

Many of the key arguments in the film come from journalist Vijay Prashad, who condemns policymaking on the assum...

Fantasies about Socialism "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Meanwhile in the awful assemblage of obnoxious opinions called The Stone, Benjamin Yong argues for this:

The real culprit of the climate crisis is not any particular form of consumption, production or regulation but rather the very way in which we globally produce, which is for profit rather than for sustainability. So long as this order is in place, the crisis will continue and, given its progressive nature, worsen. This is a hard fact to confront. But averting our eyes from a seemingly intractable problem does not make it any less a problem. It should be stated plainly: Its capitalism that is at fault.

As an increasing number of environmental groups are emphasizing, its systemic change or bust. From a political standpoint, something interesting has occurred here: Climate change has made anticapitalist struggle, for the first time in history, a non-class-based issue.
I would find this silly if so many people didn't take it seriously. So let me give it a serious response.

First, certain parts of the world have already tried a communist economy, and the environmental results were awful. There is simply no reason to assume that a socialist system would do any better at protecting the environment than the regulatory regimes we have now. It's just the old fantasy of Revolution: after we overthrow the oppressors, everything will be better. Trust us!

Second: is the government producing electric cars? No. Elon Musk is. And General Motors and Nissan. Capitalist firms produce what people want to buy. Ok, you have to factor in advertising and occasionally the refusal of big firms to produce certain things, but by and large capitalism is better at making the things people want than any other system. Nowadays many people want solar panels and electric cars, so capitalist firms produce them. The reason they don't make more is that most people still prefer gasoline and getting their power from the grid. In this case as in many others, what activists like Yong call "capitalism" is really just economic democracy. Firms make lots of stuff because people want it. Try to take it away from them and they are going to howl.

Third: many, many people hate it when bossy leftists tell them they have to change their whole lives and conform to the dictates of the greens: Change now! Give up your favorite things! Or the planet is doomed! Really! You must obey us or else!

People like Yong are somehow (like so many other progressive activists) incapable of hearing how they sound to other people. This whole "we must have systematic change" approach only guarantees that nothing will be done, because let me tell you we are not going to have socialist environmentalism in America. If you didn't like the backlash that gave u...

Nebraska Public Service Commission Approves Keystone XL Pipeline "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"


As you probably know, the Blue Dogs, New Dems and DCCC are all furiously pushing Brad Ashford on Omaha voters again. Ashford, an opportunist who changes parties like normal people change underwear, was one of the 3 worst Democrats in the House for his one miserable term.

We now know what lead can do to water because weve seen the tragedy unfold in Flint, Michigan. In Omaha, the community has rallied around an organization to deal with lead-contaminated soil and a long-term health crisis. It was started because funds from a legal settlement from a large corporation had to be used to clean up a toxic, polluted Superfund site. The EPA also had to come in and spend hundreds of millions of dollars to clean up what a big corporation left us with-- lead poisoned soil.

It Begins. Liberal Hacks at Newsweek Compare Charles Manson to Trump "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Mass murderer Charles Manson died today.
He was 83 years old.

Mansons cult followers committed a series of nine murders at four locations in July and August 1969.

Newsweek compared him to Donald Trump.

This is your liberal media at work.

Yup. They went there.
Via Newsweek:

The death of cult leader and convicted murderer Charles Manson resurfaces tales from his twisted familys killing spree after nearly four decades. Manson orchestrated the brutal deaths of actress Sharon Tate and six other innocent people in the 1960s according to historical reports, which leave many wondering how he convinced followers, made up of a former Sunday school teacher, a church choir singer and a one-time homecoming princess, into committing such brutal acts.

According to psychoanalyst Mark Smaller, past president of the American Psychoanalytic Association, part of Mansons power lay in the type of language he used. Notably, Manson was able to speak in a way that engaged those who felt marginalized or alienated.

A charismatic leader knows how to speak to people in a way that will emotionally engage those people, Smaller told Newsweek.

Smaller is clear that he does not believe President Donald Trump is similar to the convicted killer, or that their followers have any shared beliefs or characteristics, but he did say we can look to the current president to see how language is used to form a bond with followers.

Our current president speaks in an emotional or affective way to large numbers of people in our country who feel a kind of alienation or disconnection from the government, he said. They feel very responded to and become his political base.

According to the psychoanalyst, cult followers like those in the Manson family are so seduced by feelings of acceptance and understanding that they accept their leaders ideologies regardless of how destructive or dangerous they may be.

Its not even the content of what that charismatic leader says, he said. He or she is able to do it in an emotional way.

Sessions DOJ Caught Downplaying Evidence Linking Obama And Hillary To Uranium-One Scandal "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

A new report says the Justice Department under Attorney General Jeff Sessions downplayed evidence linking former President Barack Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to the Uranium-One scandal. 

The evidence comes amid the secret FBI informant behind the Uranium-One deal breaking his silence.

Last week, William Campbell came forward as the secret FBI informant, saying he is eager to testify because of his concerns about Russias activities in the United States, but declined to comment further, reports Reuters.

I have worked with the Justice Department undercover for several years, and documentation relating to Uranium One and political influence does exist, and I have it, Campbell told Reuters.

FBI informant Campbell, acting as a consultant trying to help Rosatom overcome political opposition to the Uranium One deal, gathered evidence for six years, and, according to the more than 5,000 pages of documents from the counterintelligence investigation, there are a number of evidentiary links between corrupt Russians, President Obama, and Hillary Clinton, reports Zerohedge.

Heres how Sessions and Rosenstein attempted to downplay proof linking Obama and Clinton to the Uranium-One scandal.

The Hill reports:

For instance, both Attorney General Jeff Sessions in testimony last week and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein in a letter to the Senate last month tried to suggest there was no connection between Uranium One and the nuclear bribery case. Their argument was that the criminal charges werent filed until 2014, while the Committee of Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS) approval of the Uranium One sale occurred in October 2010.

The way I understand that matter is that the case in which Mr. Mikerin was convicted was not connected to the CFIUS problem that occurred two...

Judge Roy Moore Leads Liberal Doug Jones 58% to 35% in latest Tribune Poll "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

After two weeks of continual hits by the Washington media and GOP elites Judge Roy Moore leads liberal Doug Jones in the Alabama Senate race.

Only 35% of respondents believed the several attacks against Judge Moore who has been in public office for decades.

The Trussville Tribune reported:

In an unscientific online poll conducted by The Trussville Tribune, Republican Roy Moore led Democrat Doug Jones by a healthy margin.

When asked who participants would vote for in Alabamas U.S. Senate race, 58.5 percent chose Moore over Jones with 35 percent. Less than 4 percent said they would not vote and less than 2 percent said they would write in a candidate.

Asked if they were affiliated with a political party, 46.5 percent of participants identified as Republican, 33 percent said they were independent, and 22 percent said Democrat.

The poll participants identified as conservative 55 percent of the time, moderate 30 percent, and liberal 15 percent.

Asked if they believed the allegations about Moore, 50 percent did not, 36 percent did believe the allegations and 14 percent were undecided.

HELL FREEZES OVER=> MSNBCs Chris Matthews SLAMS Hillary For Deplorables Comment "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Its no secret that Obama and Hillary (and all Democrats) have contempt for white Americans and Christians.

It turns out that Obama doesnt give left-wing crank Chris Matthews a tingling sensation up his legs anymore because he slammed the former president and Hillary for their anti-white rhetoric.

MSNBCs Chris Matthews was in Miami over the weekend for a book signing. He zinged Hillary for her deplorables comment and took a shot at Obamas clinging to guns and religion hit.

Ever since we started this Archie Bunker thing in the early 70s, making fun of white working people, we kissed them goodbye. You make fun of people, you look down on them, they get the message. You call them deplorables, they hear it. You bet they hear it.

You say they cling to their guns and religion? Oh yeah? I cling to my religion. OK. Im a little person, and youre a big person. Thank you, Ill be voting for the other guy this time.

Donald Trump won the election because he appealed to the forgotten man and woman. Middle America has been neglected by the coastal elitists in D.C. for decades. The Democrats in particular have contempt for white Christians while praising Islam and illegal aliens.

Whites are routinely demonized by the left while carrying the brunt of the tax burden.
The deplorables hit back hard in 2016 and will do it again the next election.

STEYER IS JUST ANOTHER BILLIONAIRE WHO'S ANGRY WHEN EVERYTHING DOESN'T GO HIS WAY "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Tom Steyer is throwing good money after bad:

Tom Steyer, the billionaire environmentalist and Democratic mega donor, said hes heading to the heart of New York City for the next step of his $20 million ad campaign urging the impeachment of President Donald Trump.

Were putting a couple of large billboards in Times Square calling for the impeachment of the president, Steyer said Monday in an interview. We legitimately feel that this is the huge issue in front of the American people that no one is standing up for what the overwhelming number of Americans think.
It pains me that Donald Trump is president, and he certainly deserves impeachment and removal from office. But it's not true that impeachment is what "the overwhelming number of Americans" want. In the poll showing the greatest support for impeachment, an October Public Policy Polling survey, 49% of respondents favored it, while 41% opposed it. That's a plurality, but not a majority, and certainly not an "overwhelming" majority. In an August Harvard/Harris poll, 43% of respondents favored impeachment, while 42% backed no action and 12% backed censure. Also in August, the Public Religion Research Institute found 40% support for impeachment.

So Congress isn't failing to do what the public wants. It's failing to do what not quite half of the public wants. More to the point, it's failing to do what Tom Steyer wants. Steyer is another billionaire who's so used to getting his way on everything that he thinks it's a monstrous injustice when he's rebuffed. He's just like a Koch brother, except on the side of good. I'm sorry he's being rebuffed, but if he were a non-billionaire, he might have a better understanding of disappointment.

Trump won't be impeached as long as there's a Republican House, and he can't be convicted in the Senate unless 67 senators vote to convict. Currently, there are 46 Democratic senators and 2 independents who caucus with the Democrats. So unless you can name 19 Republican senators who'd vote to convict, why are we even having this conversation now?

I'm not the first person to say this, but $20 million could be put to much better use supporting Democratic candidates and funding voter registration drives and turnout efforts. Every dime devoted to this crusade could be better spent.

And Times Square? Really? I arrived in New York City as a college freshman in 1976, and even by then Times Square had long si...

HANNITY EXCLUSIVE: Newly Unearthed Documents Linking Russia To Clinton-Uranium One Scandal Validates FBI Informant "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Fox News host Sean Hannity and Circa News reporter Sara A. Carter have teamed up to report that the treasure trove of documents, linking Russia to the Clinton-Uranium One deal validates statements by FBI informant William D. Campbell Jr.

Recently, Campbell came forward as the secret FBI informant in the Uranium-One deal. The informant revealed he is eager to testify because of his concerns about Russias activities in the United States, but declined to comment further, reports Reuters.

I have worked with the Justice Department undercover for several years, and documentation relating to Uranium One and political influence does exist, and I have it, Campbell told Reuters.

Hannity.com reports:

Recent pushback in Congressional testimony by Department of Justice Attorney General Jeff Sessions, as well as unnamed Justice Department officials in several news articles, stating that the case involving a highly placed FBI confidential informant in the Russian nuclear industry was not connected to the sale of the Canadian firm Uranium One in 2010, does not coincide with the trove of documents, emails and memoranda obtained by this reporter that prove otherwise.

Moreover, an American energy consultant, whose now an official with the Department of Energy office of Nuclear Energy, produced a memorandum regarding the acquisition of Uranium One and other legislative matters for one of the main Russian co-conspirators that was then under an FBI clandestine investigation.

Within the over 5,000 documents and briefs given to the FBI and DOJ by the informant, there were detailed plans of Russias state controlled nuclear arm Rosatom, and its subsidiaries, to penetrate Americas vast energy market and its efforts to gain approval of the United States government for the eventual purchase of Uranium One. At the time Uranium One controlled roughly 20 percent of American uranium mining capacity.

In fact, the evidence obtained by the Department of Justice and FBI, starting as early as 2008, paint a much different picture than that of recent reports regarding the confidential informant, William D. Campbell Jr., and his role. According to the documents, Campbell gained insight into Russias strategic plans to gain g...

Nudity, Groping and Lewd Calls: Eight Women Accuse Charlie Rose of Sexual Harassment "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Longtime television host Charlie Rose is being accused of sexual harassment by eight women. Rose allegedly engaged in sexual misconduct with nudity, groping and lewd calls.

According to the Washington Post, Roses unwanted advances included groping [womens] breasts, buttocks or genital areas.

Washington Post reports:

The women were employees or aspired to work for Rose at the Charlie Rose show from the late 1990s to as recently as 2011. They ranged in age from 21 to 37 at the time of the alleged encounters. Rose, 75, whose show airs on PBS, also co-hosts CBS This Morning and is a contributing correspondent for 60 Minutes.

There are striking commonalities in the accounts of the women, each of whom described their interactions with Rose in multiple interviews with The Post. For all of the women, reporters interviewed friends, colleagues or family members who said the women had confided in them about aspects of the incidents. Three of the eight spoke on the record.

[]

Reah Bravo was an intern and then associate producer for Roses PBS show beginning in 2007. In interviews, she described unwanted sexual advances while working for Rose at his private waterfront estate in Bellport, N.Y., and while traveling with him in cars, in a hotel suite and on a private plane.

[]

Kyle Godfrey-Ryan, one of Roses assistants in the mid-2000s, recalled at least a dozen instances where Rose walked nude in front of her while she worked in one of his New York City homes. He also repeatedly called the then-21-year-old late at night or early in the morning to describe his fantasies of her swimming naked in the Bellport pool as he watched from his bedroom, she said.

Aside From Nancy Pelosi, Who Thinks Congress Needs More Clueless Multimillionaires Buying House Seats? "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"




I'm afraid that if Pelosi stays on as House Democratic Leader for another decade-- she'd only be 87, barely older than DiFi when she starts her next 6-year Senate term-- there will be no Democratic members of Congress who aren't multimillionaires. Pelosi's net worth is around $192 million. She likes-- and encourages-- candidates like what she sees in the mirror to run as Democrats. There are at least 5 Democrats in the House in that same super-duper-rich category-- Jared Polis (New Dem-CO- $476 million), John Delaney (New Dem-MD- $369 million), Scott Peters (New Dem-CA- $118.3 million), Suzan DelBene (New Dem-WA- $97.3 million), and Don Beyer (New Dem-VA- $79.8 million). Will you look at that! A bunch of conservatives from the Republican wing of the Democratic Party-- at least when it comes to economic issues. Multimillionaires tend to be that way. All these sickening New Dems who play footsie with the Republicans and the same corrupting elements who fund the Republicans.

But it's the crappy candidates Pelosi has the DCCC recruiting that get me going. I never saw so many multimillionaires running as I have this year. I want to throw up. See the nice "I'm Running!" video up top-- like from an undergraduate communications class? That was released yesterday by Sara Jacobs, the self-entitled heiress to the Qualcomm fortune. And there's already a completely pointless multimillionaire in that race, Paul Kerr, a crony of one of California's worst (and richest) members, Scott Peters, who persuaded him to run. This is a district where the incredible grassroots work by Doug Applegate and his team last year exposed how weak Darrell Issa is-- and nearly beat him. The final vote wasn't declared 'til January-- last in the nation-- and Issa squeaked through 155,888 (50.3%) to 154,267 (49.7%). So Applegate announced he would finish what he started in 2016. But a vile gaggle of predatory super-rich scumbags, like Peters, started telling their friends it would be easy to roll over Applegate and then let the wave sweep them to victory against Issa with no real effort. Worst of all is Pelosi crony Ira Lechner, a failed Virginia political hack who persuaded one of his pals, Mike Levin-- who never lifted a finger against Issa previously-- to jump in, promising him that a thuggish political operative in Pasasda, Park Skelton, could "deliver" Pelosi and force Applegate out of the race.

We gotta get to the bottom of what happened in 2016. If I had been president, or on Earth 2where I am, I would have an independent commission with subpoena power because if we dont get to the bottom of it, its going to keep happening. This is an ongoing threat, Hillary said.

New details today on the incident that left Senator Rand Paul with six broken ribs this might be one of my favorite stories, Hunt said.

Hunt, realizing how ridiculous she sounded, continued by saying awkwardly, Although, of course, we dont clearly Senator Paul is struggling. Neighbor Rene Boucher is accused of beating the Senator and GQ reports that lawn-care issues might be at the heart disagreement.

Nearly two weeks ago, Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) was physically attacked by neighbor Rene Boucher. According to a new report, the incident may have stemmed from a real estate dispute, as Boucher has been trying to sell his Bowling Green, Kentucky home for years and blames Paul for his troubles. 

Daily Mail UK reports:

The socialist doctor charged with cracking Senator Rand Pauls ribs in a crunching blindside tackle may have harbored a secret grudge against his GOP neighbor for spoiling his lakeside views and devaluing his home, DailyMail.com can reveal. 

Rene Boucher, 59, told Paul in the wake of the mauling that he hadnt been able to sell his $740,000 house for ten years because the congressmans trees were in the way.

Its believed Boucher was referring to woodland at the back of Pauls property that blocks the doctors views of the picturesque private lake that forms the centerpiece of their upscale gated community.

Judge Roy Moore is once again leading ultra-liberal Democrat Doug Jones in the PredictIt Market.

Before the Washington Post story broke, Roy Moore was almost a lock to win at 89 percent in PredictIts Alabama Senate race prediction market. After the allegations surfaced, Moores odds dropped to 59 percent that day. He remained a slight favorite over Doug Jones, who also saw a significant bump on the news, until Monday when a fifth woman came forward with allegations against Moore.

Once again Judicial Watch is doing the heavy lifting.

Conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch announced Monday that it filed a lawsuit against the State Department for records on the shady Podesta Group run by Tony Podesta, brother of Clinton fixture John Podesta.

Via Judicial Watch:

Judicial Watch announced today that it filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit against the U.S. Department of State for all records about the Podesta Group Inc. and the European Centre for a Modern Ukraine, which have both been connected to the recent special counsel indictment of Paul Manafort (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of State (No. 1:17-cv-02489)).

Judicial Watch sued after the State Department failed to respond to a September 13, 2017, FOIA request for:

  • All records of communication between any official, employee, or representative of the Department of State and any principal, employee, or representative of Podesta Group, Inc.
  • All records produced related to any meetings or telephonic communications between any official, employee, or representative of the Department of State and any principal, employee, or representative of Podesta Group, Inc.
  • All records regarding the European Centre for a Modern Ukraine.
  • The FOIA request covers the timeframe of January 1, 2012 to the present.

Chair of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve: Who Is Jerome Jay Powell? "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Donald Trump is placing yet another multimillionaire in a position of power. On November 2, 2017, the president nominated Jerome Powellwhose $112 million net worth already makes him the richest person at the Fedto serve as the next chair of the Federal Reserve. The Fed is the nations central bank, and wields enormous power over the American economy and financial system by setting interest rates, determining the money supply, and regulating banks and financial institutions. Trumps cabinetwhich includes two billionaires and eleven multimillionairesis already the wealthiest in history, so Powell should fit right in.

 

Powell would also be the first non-economist to lead the Fed since William Miller, who served from 1979 to 1981. He is also the first investment banker to lead the Fed. If confirmed by the Senate, Powell would succeed Janet Yellen, a former economics professor who has served as Fed chair since February 2014. Powell, a Republican, has served as a Fed governor since May 2012, when President Barack Obama appointed him in a compromise that ended a Senate filibuster against nominee Jeremy C. Stein, a Democrat. 

 

Perceived as a safe and stabilizing choice for the Fed, Powell is a pragmatist who has voiced support for the Dodd-Frank banking regulation law signed by President Obama. He has also criticized President Trumps financial deregulation proposals as a mixed bag.

 

Born February 4, 1953, in Washington, D.C., to attorney Jerome Powell and Patricia (Hayden) Powell, Jerome Jay Hayden Powell graduated Georgetown Prep School in 1971. He earned a B.A. in Politics at Princeton University in 1975, writing a senior thesis entitled South Africa: Forces for Change.

Lou Dobbs Goes Off on Dirty Cop Mueller as Witch Hunt Expands to DOJ Officials Overseeing Special Counsel! "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Fox News Lou Dobbs unleashed on dirty cop Robert Mueller after he expanded his witch hunt to DOJ officials overseeing his Russian collusion investigation!

Shut it down!

ABC News reported:

Issued within the past month, the directive marks the special counsels first records request to the Justice Department, and it means Mueller is now demanding documents from the department overseeing his investigation.

Muellers investigators now seek not only communications among Justice Department staffers but also any of their communications with White House officials, the source said. Before this request, investigators asked former senior Justice Department officials for information from their time at the department, ABC News was told.

The latest move suggests the special counsel is still digging into, among other matters, whether Trump or any other administration official improperly tried to influence an ongoing investigation.

Mueller and his team of 17 left-wing radical lawyer hacks are being paid millions of dollars for an unconstitutional, out of control witch hunt.

Where is the honest leadership in this country? The American people are watching in horror as Mueller investigates an innocent Donald Trump while the Deep State swamp creatures walk freely.

In Surprise Move, Norway's $1 Trillion Sovereign Wealth Fund May Divest From Fossil Fuels "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

A shot heard round the world? (source)

by Gaius Publius

Two broad points before the specifics of this story.

First, the Divest from Oil and Gas movement is a real threat to Big Oil as an industry in the same way the Divest from South Africa movement was a threat to South African apartheid it hits them where the money sits, in the wallet and not in the reputation, the latter of which can always be papered over with expensive ad campaigns telling us how wonderful the industry is.


It's a real advantage having more money than any of your enemies, isn't it.

The Divest from Oil and Gas movement is as threatening to the industry as lawsuits, which are also going on. A divestment movement essentially threatens to collapse the price of oil and gas company stocks, which impoverishes the investing class and, more particularly, the industry's CEO class, since a good part of their pay is in stock.

Once stock prices fall below 50% of their value, it takes forever to build them back up, if indeed they ever recover.

Second, a collapse of oil and gas stock prices is, at some point, inevitable. Consider: If most or all of current in-the-ground fossil fuel reserves a major basis of valuation of these companies will stay in the ground as "stranded assets," at some point the value of Exxon, Conoco and Shell will and should be nearly zero.

The only questions are when that will occur and what will be the triggering event. I've written before about the precariousness of Big Oil as an industry see "Big Oil In Trouble, Enters "No Mans Land" of Collapsing Balance Sheets" and that reasoning still holds. Big Oil faces either death by government intervention (the world of power grows an aggressive conscience) or death by market (a permanent fossil fu...

GOP Senator Admits Motive Behind War on Judge Moore Is to Destroy Trump Agenda! "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

The fix is in when it comes to the Republican establishments outrage over sexual harassment allegations facing Alabama GOP Senate candidate Judge Roy Moore.

The Swamp wants voters to do the impossible by writing in a conservative candidate to be the next Republican Senator of Alabama. 

Of course this is an impossible task. No write-in candidate has been decided on, nor is there one who commands anywhere near the same level of support as Judge Moore.

Were about to give away a seat that can determine the future of Trumps agenda, admitted #NeverTrumper Sen. Lindsey Graham on Fox News Radios The Brian Kilmeade Show.

The Hill reports:

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) on Monday said Alabama GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore poses a threat to the Republican agenda, adding that he favors maneuvering that would trigger a new special election.

Were about to give away a seat that can determine the future of Trumps agenda, and I hope the good people of Alabama on the Republican side will try to find a way to pick a nominee that can represent the conservative cause in an effective way, Graham said on Fox News Radios The Brian Kilmeade Show.

SALENA ZITO: WHY AREN'T YOU LIBERAL ELITISTS CHEERING THIS POSSIBLE VAPORWARE? (updated) "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Deplorable whisperer Salena Zito wonders why everyone hasn't heard the awesome news:

Glen Dale, W. Va. Bad news travels fast. Good news, meanwhile, doesnt seem to travel at all.

Last weekend in Beijing, as part of his 12-day trip to Asia, President Trump announced that the US and China had signed an $83.7 billion memorandum of understanding to create a number of petrochemical projects in West Virginia over the next 20 years.

If the agreement holds tight, it is an economic game changer for the state.

And yet, speaking to the locals here, you wouldnt even know it had happened.
Much of the blame, she believes, falls on the mainstream media:
I am surprised I heard nothing about it on the national news, nor in my local paper and newscasts, said Jerald Stephens, 67, a West Virginia native and union rep, who has been a keen observer of local politics for as long as he can remember.

The BBC and CNN covered the news in their business sections, while The New York Times picked up a short story by The Associated Press on the deal. The stories headlines were muted; their placement low-key....

Stephens finds the lack of coverage telling. I can guarantee you if anyone not named Trump had made this kind of deal for West Virginia, it would have at least been a panel discussion or two on a cable news channel.

Once again, the media is missing a story that matters to the American people outside the liberal echo chamber.
I found plenty of stories about this -- and one reason it's not getting massive headlines is that the deal isn't really a deal at all. Here's one response to this and other U.S.-China deals that were announced during Trump's trip, which were valued at a total of $250 billion:
I am somewhat skeptical of such a large number, Alex Wolf, senior emerging markets economist at Aberdeen Standard Investments, told the Reuters Global Markets Forum....

I suspect they might be primarily MOUs (memorandum of understandings) instead of actual contracts and the actual contract amount may be substantially less.
In fact, a memorandum of understanding is exactly what was signed -- and for West Virginia, nothing is guaranteed:

TX Woman Puts Vile, Hateful F**k Trump and F**k You Sticker on Truck Gets Arrested for Outstanding Felony (Video) "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Hateful leftist Karen Fonseca made headlines after driving around Fort Bend County, Texas with a nasty F*** Trump sign on the back of her pickup truck.

Karen was picked up at her home last Thursday and arrested for a previous outstanding crime.

Democrat of the day: Karen Fonseca:

CBS News reported:

A Texas woman who became a viral sensation for displaying a controversial F*** Trump sticker on her pickup truck has added a new decal to her collection.

CBS News affiliate KHOU-TV reports Karen Fonseca made headlines after Fort Bend County Sheriff Troy Nehls threatened to arrest her for displaying the anti-Trump sticker. Last week Nehls posted a photo of the truck message on Facebook and threatened Fonseca with a disorderly conduct charge over the decal.

She was subsequently taken into custody on a warrant from 2014, and was later released on bond.

Im almost certain it does have to do with this, she told KHOU-TV. People abuse the badge, and in my opinion, money talks. When youre in politics, people know how to work the system.

Fonseca says a new sticker was made following her arrest. It reads in part: F*** TROY NEHLS AND F*** YOU FOR VOTING FOR HIM.

Fonseca was driving around town with the F*** Trump bumper sticker for the last 11 months.

Karen is very upset that she was arrested for a past crime.

In Yemens 60 Minutes Moment, No Mention That the U.S. Is Fueling the Conflict "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Saudi Arabias years-long blockade and bombing campaign in Yemen has gotten very little coverage in the United States, even as the extreme food and fuel shortages have developed into one of the worlds worst humanitarian crises.

Now, as the Saudi noose on Yemen tightens leaving 7 million people facing starvation and another 1 million infected with cholera the war is having its moment in the media spotlight.

On Sunday, 60 Minutes aired a 13-minute segment on the wars devastating humanitarian toll. The program featured imagery of starving children and interviews with displaced people, all obtained after Saudi Arabia blocked 60 Minutes from entering the country.

You keep going like youre going, theres not going to be anybody left, David Beasley, executive director of the World Food Program, told CBSs Scott Pelley. All the children are going to be dead.

Coverage on such a high-profile program is frequently enough to get politicians to pay attention to an issue, and the 60 Minutes feature comes amid a growing debate about the U.S. role in the war. Just last week, the House of Representatives voted to say that Congress has not authorized American military support for the Saudi-led coalition.

Still, the program did not once mention that Saudi Arabia is a U.S. ally, and that U.S. support is essential for the Saudi campaign to continue.

For two-and-a-half years, the U.S. government has backed Saudi Arabias intervention in Yemen every step of the way. The United States has dispatched warships to reinforce the blockade. It has refueled Saudi planes, sent the Saudi military targeting intelligence, and resupplied them with tens of billions of dollars worth of bombs.

The U.S. has had the power to pull the plug on the intervention since the beginning. Bruce Riedel, a senior fellow at the Brookings Institution and a 30-year veteran of the CIA, explained last year that if the United States and the United Kingdom, tonight, told King Salman [of Saudi Arabia], This war has to end, it would end tomorrow. The Royal Saudi Air Force cannot operate without American and British support.

Paul Ryans Cindy Is A Cruel Figment Of The Capitalist Imagination "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Paul Ryan used Twitter to introduce Cindy, a fictional mother of one who works as an assistant restaurant manager making $30,000 a year.

Meet Cindy: a single mom, making $30,000 per year, who hopes to one day get beyond living paycheck to paycheck, Ryan wrote. With a $700 increase in her tax refund each year under our tax bill, Cindy can start saving for her future.

The Republican Speaker, who has an estimated net worth of $6,453,040, wants people to believe that what amounts to an extra $58 a month will allow for Cindy to save money.

If this fictional single parent is anything like the two-thirds of Americans who dont have enough saved to take care of a $500 emergency, Ryans embroidered tax refund wont be anywhere near enough to keep their finances above water, let alone give them breathing room to start saving.

Keeping all of Ryans imaginative numbers where they are, lets say Cindy lives in Ryans home state of Wisconsin. According to the Massachusetts Institute of Technologys (MIT) living wage calculator, at $30,000 a year and with one child, Cindy would need to make $23.62 an hour working forty hours a week to make a living wage.

The minimum wage in Wisconsin is only $7.25 per hour. The average annual salary that would be necessary for a single parent household and one child in Wisconsin is $49,131.

In other words, $700 wont be saving Cindy, and thats taking into account that $30,000 may be a fairly high estimate for someone working as a restaurant assistant manager. It would take a decade to save a meager $7,000 should Cindy deposit every $700 check, not touching a penny of it to pay for medical emergencies, child care, food, and any debt.

Existing financial institutionsincredibly predatory and unforgivingare tireless in their exploitation of the poor. Along with the rapid rise of the cost of living and decline in pay growth, the hurdles that face low-income households keep multiplying.

For the poor, there is no pulling your bootstraps out of capitalism. Those straddling the edges of homelessness, financial devastation, and hunger have no bootstraps. There are no boots.

Former President Bill Clinton is reportedly facing new sexual assault accusations from four women after flying on playboy billionaire investor Ron Burkles private jet nicknamed Air F*ck One. 

Daily Mail UK reports:

Attorneys representing the women, who are coordinating their efforts, have notified Clinton they are preparing to file four separate lawsuits against him.

As part of the ongoing negotiations, the attorneys for the women are asking for substantial payouts in return for their clients silence.

A member of Clintons legal team has confirmed the existence of the new allegations.

If they fail, according to sources in Clintons inner circle, the four women are said to be ready to air their accusations of sexual assault at a press conference, making Clinton the latest and most famous figure in a long list of men from Harvey Weinstein to Kevin Spacey who have recently been accused of sexual assault.

Clinton helped Burkle generate business and flew around the world with a flock of beautiful young women on Burkles private jet, which was nicknamed Air F**k One.

The four women, who have not yet revealed their identities, were employed in low-level positions at the Burkle organization when they were in their late teens and claim they were sexually assaulted by the former president.

Its Not Just Hannity Liberals Led By Media Matters Are Doing Everything They Can to Suppress All Conservative Free Speech "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Guest post by Joe Hoft

To hell with the 1st Amendment Nazi Sympathizer George Soros funded Media Matters is leading the liberal charge to shut down all conservative speech in America in spite of the fact that a majority of Americans are conservative.

Under President Obama the US was caught in a backwards spiral.  Unemployment rose to as much as 10% while the amount of US debt doubled to nearly $20 trillion.  In spite of the government not being able to pay its current bills, Obamas US took on more and more third world immigrants and opened its porous borders with Mexico.  Jobs were sent overseas with the help of horrible trade treaties with other countries.  The Middle East turned upside down as US troops were pulled from Iraq and guns from Libya were supplied to rebels in Syria who morphed into Islamic killers.  Americans murdered in Benghazi were ignored and patriot taxpayers who supported conservative principles were repressed.  All the while the complicit mainstream media (MSM) supported Obamas destruction of America and condemned all who dared stand up for justice.

These efforts to destroy America are what led to the Trump Presidency.  But liberals never got it.  They performed studies after the election and rightly learned that their old legacy compliant media was no longer the only show in town.  Entities like this site (TGP) were sharing the real news and their messages were shared on the mega news site the Drudge Report Hillary was sick and taking time off from her campaign.  Podestas emails were released by WikiLeaks, and although the MSM wouldnt report what was in them, the criminal and corrupt actions of Hillarys campaign manager and former Bill Clinton and Barack Obama aide, showed corruption at levels never seen before.  These too were reported by the new media.

Americans had a voice and Trump won!

So after the election did liberals decide to change their ways?  Did they see that their policies were wrong for America?  Did the MSM decide to change its ways and start reporting honest news?...

PEASANTS, NOTHING MATTERS AND LIFE IS JUST CONTENT "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin was widely criticized after he and his wife were photographed happily brandishing a sheet of uncut dollar bills. Mnuchin's dismissal of some of the criticism is peculiar:

Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin on Sunday said he takes it as a compliment that some people suggested that he and his wife looked like villains from a "James Bond" movie when they posed with newly printed currency.

I never thought Id be quoted as looking like villains from the 'James Bond' [movies]. I guess I should take that as a compliment that I look like a villain in a great, successful 'James Bond' movie, Mnuchin said on Fox News Sunday."
When ordinary humans refer to a real person as a Bond villain, we mean that the person seems like an outsize caricature of an evil person but is actually evil. But to Mnuchin -- who in his previous life was a executive producer of dozens of movies -- everything is content. He's being compared to a character in a film series that does boffo B.O. -- so it's all good!

Is this a rich guy's indifference to the concerns and fears of the peasants? Is it some variety of autistic-spectrum tunnel vision? I think it's a combination of the two. In any case, I don't expect any empathy from Mnuchin. I don't think he's capable of it.

Erik Loomis writes:
Only in the New Gilded Age would a high official see himself and his wife photographed as vile kleptocrats, be compared to the villains in Bond movies, and take the comparison as a compliment.
Yes, but Mnuchin is not the first member of a Republican administration to proclaim an affinity with a fictional character who lacks basic human decency. Remember White House counselor Edwin Meese's December 1983 National Press Club speech?

U of I Graduate Student Instructor Arrested for Assaulting Conservative Students and Stealing Phone (Video) "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Unhinged grad student instructor Tariq Khan was arrested after assaulting conservative students, stealing a phone and slamming it on the ground.

Khan was later placed under arrest and issued a notice to appear to appear in court for criminal damage to property.

And this loon is teaching kids at the University of Illinois.

Campus Reform reported:

A University of Illinois graduate instructor was arrested for assaulting two students during an anti-Trump protest Thursday, stealing the phone of one student and throwing it on the sidewalk.

Tariq Khan is a PhD candidate at the university and has taught courses such as Constructing Race in America and U.S. Gender History since 1877. He is also involved with various anarchist and communist organizations including Black Rose Anarchist Federation and Antifa, in addition to working with the undergraduate socialist students.

The event Thursday began as a demonstration to air grievances about President Trump one year after his election. Khan spoke to students, urging them to resist the presidents agenda and fight fascism, but when his speech targeted Turning Point USA members on campus, conservative students who were present took notice.

Joel Valdez, executive board member and campus activism coordinator for TPUSA, asked, Dont you have anything better to do? Dont you have kids? Khan immediately charged from the Alma Mater statue and accused Valdez of threatening his children.

In video of the altercation obtained by Campus Reform Khan is seen intimidating and confronting two students: throwing a punch at one and stealing and destroying Valdezs cell phone.

The incident has been reported to University of Illinois police, and Khan was placed under arrest and issued a notice to appear to appear in court for criminal damage to property, with police valuing the cell phone at $700.

NYT Reporter (Exposed As Hack By WikiLeaks) Suspended After Sexual Misconduct Claims "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

New York Times reporter Glenn Thrush has been suspended from the paper after details emerged about his alleged bad judgment around young women journalists.

According to Bianca Padr Ocasio, a friend of one of the women Thrush made unwanted sexual advances towards, the New York Times reporter was well known for telling others he was a mentor to aspiring women and was disgusted by the toxic culture created by sexual harassers.

Vox recounts multiple incidents of Thrushs alleged sexual misconduct.

Vox reports:

Thrush and the young woman met at her colleagues going-away party at a bar near the Politico newsroom, she told me, and shared a few rounds of drinks in a booth. The night, she said, ended on a Washington street corner, where Thrush left her in tears after she resisted his advances.

The encounter was troubling enough to the woman that her friend Bianca Padr Ocasio, also 23 and a journalist, confronted Thrush about his behavior via text message the next day.

I want to make sure you dont lure young women aspiring journalists into those situations ever again, she texted. So help me out here. How can I do that?

Singer Morrissey Rages at Angela Merkel for Destroying Europe: I Want Germany to be German (Video) "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Germany, a country of 82 million, welcomed from 800,000 to over one million migrants and unvetted refugees in 2015.

Chancellor Angela Merkel welcomed close over 280,000 migrants in 2016.

Frau Merkels policies have not gone unnoticed.
A Syrian refugee family named their fifth child Angela Merkel Muhammed in honor of Chancellor Merkel.

Not everyone is supportive of this suicidal policy.

Singer Morrissey blasted Merkel for destroying Europe in a recent interview.

Smiths front man Morrissey has hit out at Angela Merkel for throwing away the countrys culture in a furious tirade against immigration.

Island of Light, Island of Shadow "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Heres where the hurricane tore off my roof, she pointed upward. We look at exposed wood beams under open sky. It was horrible, Ruth crossed her arms. Doors shook. Water came into the house.

Her son tugged on her pant leg and she lifted him. We hid in the bathroom. Patting his head, she leaned on the balcony to study the island. It was like a furious giant had stomped and clawed the town of Utuado, Puerto Rico. Trees were snapped. Power lines, ripped. Mudslides bled over roads.

No electricity. No water. All day to get anything done, she said as she rocked her son. I dont think its going to get better anytime soon.

Hurricane Maria

The storm fed on heat. Like an angry spirit seeking release, it climbed the sky. Warm. Sluggish. Slow. Hungry for fury. It found more than wind on the ocean. It tasted carbon, the gaseous exhale of civilization.

It fed on the heat spawned by a billion cars and thousands of jets that crossed the planet. Awakened to its power, the storm screamed like a newborn, its 175 mile-per-hour winds lashed waves upon waves.

Hurricane Marias eye opened, seeing a path. This fury, half made by nature, half by man. It violently spun in space, cursed hot breaths of lightning and storm. She drew darkness over the islands as the poor nailed wood over windows, heard of her immensity and said her name over and over Maria.

New York City

Are they safe? I asked.

I called, Mom said. But no one picks up the phone. On screen, a NASA video showed a white foamy spiral around a black hole. Like the sky had been unplugged and all the weight and force of the atmosphere drained into the eye.

Everywhere Hurricane Maria passed went dark and then, slowly, photos surfaced. Dominica. Bahamas. Wrecked. Homes like piles of splinters. Roads cracked. Rivers gushed through the center of town. People digging through wreckage.

It churned over the Caribbean until its dark eye slammed into Puerto Rico and then vanished. An eerie quiet followed. No news came from the island. What happened to our family? What happened to Jesus, my mothers first cousin? His wife Yeya? Their kids?

Mom, did you hear anything? I asked.

No one answers, she said again. They didnt have much...

PAPER: No One is Talking About Trumps Game-Changing Deal "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

This agreement could mean thousands of new jobs for Americans who struggled under the Obama administration. Business sections in major newspapers refused to give the story the placement it deserved.

New York Post reports:

If the agreement holds tight, it is an economic game changer for the state.

And yet, speaking to the locals here, you wouldnt even know it had happened.

I am surprised I heard nothing about it on the national news, nor in my local paper and newscasts, said Jerald Stephens, 67, a West Virginia native and union rep, who has been a keen observer of local politics for as long as he can remember.

The BBC and CNN covered the news in their business sections, while The New York Times picked up a short story by The Associated Press on the deal. The stories headlines were muted; their placement low-key.

One would have suspected that the prospect of an investment this large nearly three times the total annual budget for the department of energy would have been front-page news, said Paul Sracic, political-science professor at nearby Youngstown State University.

We really have no influence or power here, so that is interesting to me that he still kept his promise to us, something I suspect he will likely get little credit for in the national news, Stephens told the New York Post.

Of course, this would not be the first time the media has opted to ignore President Trumps economic accomplishments. The Gateway Pundit Joe Hoft has been closely covering the current administrations stock market records.

New Woman Accuses Al Franken of Sexual Assault At Minnesota State Fair "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Lindsay Menz has come forward revealing Democrat Senator Al Franken inappropriately touched her at the Minnesota State Fair in 2010.

Franken reportedly grabbed her buttocks tightly while taking a photo. 

It wasnt around my waist. It wasnt around my hip or side. It was definitely on my butt,Lindsay Menz told CNN.

I was like, oh my God, whats happening, Menz added.

Below is the photo Franken took with Menz.

Photo credit: CNN

CNN report:

Lindsay Menz, a 33-year-old woman who now lives in Frisco, Texas, reached out to CNN on Thursday hours after Tweeden made her story public. Menz said she wanted to share an uncomfortable interaction that left her feeling gross. According to Menz, she attended the Minnesota State Fair with her husband and father in the summer of 2010, almost two years after Franken was elected to the Senate. Her fathers small business was sponsoring a local radio booth, and she spent the day meeting various elected officials, political candidates and celebrities and taking photos with them as they stopped by the booth.
When Franken walked in, Menz and her husband, who also spoke with CNN, said they recognized him right away. Menz said she had a brief and cordial exchange with the senator. Then, as her husband held up her phone and got ready to snap a photo of the two of them, Franken pulled me in really close, like awkward close, and as my husband took the picture, he put his hand full-fledged on my rear, Menz said. It was wrapped tightly around my butt cheek.

Bernie Sanders and the Collapse of the Leftist Coalition "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

NOTE: This article was originally published at Right On on April 4, 2016. Im re-posting it here as the site is now defunct.

For the past decade, the Left has triumphed in America by forging an anti-White alliance consisting of masochistic White progressives and self-interested minorities. But the war between Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton is threatening to tear the Left apart.

I come not to praise Bernie Sanders presidential campaign, but to bury it, because its decomposing fast and stinking up the room. A self-identified democratic socialist who wants to implement a Swedish-style welfare state, his candidacy was meant to be a watershed in American politics. Sanders gave hope to the noodle-necked pansies of the Left that Americans could give up their guns, their God-mongering, and their tax dollars to join the rest of the world in freebie-addled bliss.

Unfortunately, Democratic voters arent feeling the Bern, because Sanders has consistently lagged behind Hillary Clinton ever since the race started. While hes won enough contests to remain competitive, he keeps running up against the 50-foot wall that is the partys Black base. Black Democratic voters support Clinton in landslide numbers, enabling her to pull off huge wins in the South (where the Democratic Party is almost monolithically Black) and giving her an edge in states like Ohio and Illinois.

Ever since the sixties, the Left has supported demographic warfare against Whites (misleadingly called comprehensive immigration reform) in order to secure themselves a permanent electoral majority. The logic was the same as the Manson Familys: White Leftists assumed that Blacks and Latinos would shut up and do as they were told. But thanks to eight years of Obamas race-baiting, working-class Whites have been chased away from the Democrats, and now the Blacks and Browns no longer want to obey their progressive White massas.

Bernie Sanders campaign has been a nonstarter among Blacks for various reasons. On average, Blacks are less civically engaged than Whites and tend to support candidates who are already well-known. The Clintons have also always been popular among Blacks, excluding Hillarys 2008 presidential run, when they abandoned her to vote for her Black opponent. Additionally, Sanders Jewish heritage is a massive liability:...

Democrats Should Aim To Replace An Even 100 GOP Congressmembers "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"




The DCCC launched an on-line ad campaign against something like 40 Republicans, including 9 California targets: Jeff Denham, Devin Nunes, David Valadao, Steve Knight, Ed Royce, Mimi Walters, Dana Rohrabacher, Darrell Issa, and Duncan Hunter. I'm sure there's a reason they're not including House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) in the campaign (nor for that matter Paul Ryan. Oh, that's right, Pelosi doesn't believe in targeting Republican leaders; I almost forgot. Sunday's NY Times included an OpEd by David Leonhardt, The GOP Is Fooling Itself On Taxes about the corner the party has backed itself into on tax policy-- all in the name of "a win"-- any win. The theory is that "If they somehow fail to pass a tax cut, they will anger their base and their donors and look incompetent to swing voters. But," wrote, Leonhardt, "the actual bill that the House passed last week-- and the modestly different plan the Senate is considering-- is a dreadful piece of policy. It would cause the deficit to soar and, as a result, probably reduce economic growth. It would also raise taxes for millions of middle-class families. And most Americans realize that the tax plan is dreadful. Only 16 percent of adults said they thought the plan would reduce their own taxes, according to a Quinnipiac poll released last week. On the same day the poll came out, several Republican senators criticized the plan, which suggests it may be in jeopardy."
There is no easy way out for the party at this point. In coming days, Senate leaders will probably claim to take steps to fix the House bills flaws. But they wont be able to, absent a complete rewriting. The core of the plan is the problem.

How did Republicans do this to themselves?

Above all, they refused to heed the lessons of 2016-- of Trumps shocking romp through the primaries and even more shocking general-election win. In a time of deep economic dissatisfaction, among members of both parties, Republican leaders insisted on basing their plan around an enormous tax cut for the wealt...

CNN Host Worries Liberal Medias Mistakes Are Being Amplified By Conservative Media "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Guest post by Michael LaChance at American Lookout:

Brian Stelter is one of those liberal CNN hosts who is constantly trying to prove that hes smarter than President Trump. He claims hes trying to hold Trump accountable but people know bias when they see it.

He recently confided in a media colleague that he has concerns about how the liberal media looks right now. He should be worried.

News Busters reported:

Stelter Frets Stupid Mistakes in Media Are Amplified by Some Right-Wing Outlets to Discredit the Press

CNNs Reliable Sources host Brian Stelter invited on HLNs S.E. Cupp Unfiltered host S.E. Cupp for an illuminating 22-minute podcast released Friday dealing with conservative distrust in the news media. It featured solid points by Cupp and complaints by Stelter that mistakes in the media have been unfairly amplified by some right-wing outlets as if the entire press is culpable.

Unfortunately, there was no such discussion or acknowledgment by either one of them that a reason for conservative distrust in the media had been repeated instances of fake news, mass plagiarism, and/or scandals that did serious damage and called into question entire outlets.

In reality, Stelter should admit that those instances and subsequent rehabilitations for offending parties only further damaged the medias credibility, but more on that later

Stelter complimented Cupp for linking distrust of journalism and distrust of mainstream news sources to ownership and entertainment and Hollywood, right in that its not just about whether a journalist and newsroom might have a left-leaning bias.

He added moments later that folks like HBOs John Oliver, for example, has nothing to do with the journalism thats made by CNN. This, of course, he ignored the fact that such shows like Last Week Tonight are primary news sources for some consumers and the thoughts of comedians like Oliver and Jimmy Kimmel are routinely held up in the press as moral authorities.

If only the left could shut down opposing thought things would be so much easier for these hacks!

Illegal Aliens Murdered US Border Patrol Agent by Crushing His Skull with Rocks "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Illegal aliens murdered Border Patrol agent Rogelio Martinez while he was on patrol in the Van Horn station area.

The illegals crushed his skull with rocks.
Brandon Darby and Ildefonso Ortiz from Breitbart.com reported:

Exclusive details have emerged on the early morning attack against Border Patrol agents that left one agent dead and another hospitalized in serious condition on November, 19 2017. Breitbart Texas first broke the news of the death and injuries and now the National Border Patrol Council (NBPC) says that their agents on the ground have stated that the agents were tracking a group of illegal aliens who then beat the agents with rocks until one was killed and the other hospitalized.

Border Patrol Agent Brandon Judd, also president of the NBPC, stated, What we know is that Border Patrol Agent Rogilio Martinez appears to have been ambushed by a group of illegal aliens whom he was tracking. Our agents reports from the ground say that he was struck in the head multiple times with a rock or rocks.

Agent Judd continued, The other agent arrived on scene a short time later and was also ambushed and struck in the head with what is believed to have been a rock or rocks. These disgusting acts and complete disregard for human life need to stop immediately. Family members of slain Agent Martinez will never get to see him come home again all because we have failed to secure our borders from such criminals.

Shortly after Breitbart Texas broke the news of the incident, Customs and Border Protection (CBP) confirmed that one Border Patrol agent was dead and another hospitalized in serious condition.

Border Patrol Agent Rogelio Martinez was murdered and his partner was severely injured.

A Small Reaction against the Digital World "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

David Sax:

Thankfully, the analog world is still here, and not only is it surviving but, in many cases, it is thriving. Sales of old-fashioned print books are up for the third year in a row, according to the Association of American Publishers, while ebook sales have been declining. Independent bookstores have been steadily expanding for several years. Vinyl records have witnessed a decade-long boom in popularity (more than 200,000 newly pressed records are sold each week in the United States), while sales of instant-film cameras, paper notebooks, board games and Broadway tickets are all growing again.
I expect this dynamic to continue. The omnipresence of the internet and the tawdriness of so much online junk mean that the digital world is no longer cool just for being digital. These days hot fads are just as likely to be old-fashioned stuff like vinyl records and Polaroid-style cameras as new web sites. Among some, weariness with the internet has spurred a taste for more "authentic" experiences; live music is booming like never before, and live theater is hanging in there. Not that I expect internet use to decline, at least not by much; it is thoroughly woven into how we live. But its one-sided march to dominance will yield to a dynamic of push and pull, the number of people getting into online life about balanced by the people cutting back.

Scanning in the farther future, I wonder if we will see whole movements of people who cut themselves off from digital technology altogether. Sci-fi authors have been all over this, imagining futures in which some people become wired-in cyborgs (like Alastair Reynolds' Conjoiners) and others try to avoid computers in any shape or form. Could that divided world be our future?

Onde o racismo se esconde "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Por muito tempo no conseguia enxergar quando estava diante de um ato racista. At porque uma neblina me impedia de ver que era de fato negra. Mesmo sabendo que branca no era uma confuso bem comum no Brasil do colorismo. Mas aprendi que no s quando algum delimita o que ou no coisa de preto que o racismo acontece.

Tomei alguns bons baldes de gua fria no meio do meu processo de entendimento como mulher negra. Com eles, veio a percepo de que o racismo sempre esteve presente na minha vida: em casa, na escola, na aula de dana ou entre amigos. Ele sempre esteve l.

Ele to enraizado na estrutura da sociedade que muita gente no se d conta de suas atitudes racistas. E muitos, assim como eu, no percebem quando esto sendo vtimas. Mesmo os mais progressistas reproduzem esteretipos e contribuem para a perpetuao do racismo, at em brincadeiras e elogios.

Demorei para entender que ter tido a sorte de no ter nascido com o cabelo ruim do meu pai no era uma vantagem. Ou que ser elogiada pela minha beleza extica de morena cor de jambo no era nenhuma honra. Ou, ainda, que ter um quadril de boa parideira no era sorte alguma. Alis, nada disso impediu que eu no fosse convidada para aquela festinha da escola particular de alunos brancos em que eu era bolsista, de ser vigiada pelo segurana quando entro em uma loja, ou de no ser atendida em um restaurante (sim, aconteceu).

As situaes esto sempre acontecendo e se repetindo. E sim, s porque sou preta. Neste ano, no perodo de uma semana, me vi em trs situaes onde o racismo se apresentou de forma sutil, pronto para passar despercebido, mas ele estava l. Fiquei remoendo o sentimento de desdm e analisando o porqu de cada coisa.

No hospital

Meu falecido av branco, que carinhosamente me chamava de preto para a loucura de vov que sempre o lembrava que na verdade eu era moreninha -, precisou ser hospitalizado. Ele teve de passar por um determinado procedimento em que precisava de acompanhante. Eu, por j ter trabalhado na rea da sade e em emergncia, me ofereci.

Russian money connections paying for Trump's legal defense against illegal activities with Russians "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Yes, I think it's a problem:

According to filings with the Federal Election Commission, the Republican National Committee has paid more than $400,000 in personal legal fees for Donald Trump and Donald Trump Jr. in connection with the investigations into the Trump campaigns possible collusion with Russia in the 2016 election. At least $12,000 of those funds came from a Ukrainian-born billionaire with ties to Vladimir Putin.

It's a problem that any political party money provides direct financial benefits to electeds - that creates a pathway for anyone who's rich to put money in the pocket of the president.* Money with shadowy connections to a hostile government is even more disastrous. I'll concede that $12,000 isn't a lot, but that's just what we know about now.

Maybe this one money connection to Russia will be cut off - CNN says Trump is planning to stop taking RNC money for his own legal defense and may funnel his own money to his staff's defense. Of course when it comes to promises to spend his own money, what Trump says he'll do and what he actually does are different worlds. If it does come true though, it seems to be a sign of fear.



*I might reluctantly have a different opinion if a non-rich person is ever again elected president, but I don't see that happening anytime soon.

BREAKING: Cult Leader and Killer Charles Manson Dead at 83 "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

One of Americas most evil cult leaders, Charles Manson is dead at the age of 83. 

Manson has been locked up in prison since December of 1969.

L.A. Times reported:

Mass killer Charles Manson died of natural causes Sunday evening at a Kern County hospital, authorities said.

The 83-year-old cult leader died at 8:13 p.m., according to the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation.

Michele Hanisee, president of the Assn. of Deputy District Attorneys, issued a statement Sunday saying that Vincent Bugliosi, the deputy district attorney who prosecuted Manson, provided the most accurate summation: Manson was an evil, sophisticated con man with twisted and warped moral values.

Today, Mansons victims are the ones who should be remembered and mourned on the occasion of his death, Hanisee said.

TMZ is reporting that the prison is contacting all of the victims families.

Charles Manson was the mastermind behind a string of murders in 1969. He ruined many lives and cost taxpayers millions of dollars living in prison for decades.

Manson originally got the death penalty, however; it was later ruled unconstitutional and changed to 9 consecutive life sentences.

Good riddance.

DEEP STATE CRIMINALS=> FBI and DOJ did NOT verify Phony Trump Dossier before Requesting FISA Spy Warrant on Trump Campaign "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

This is just stunning.

The FBI and CIA did not verify the anti-Trump dossier before they began spying on the Trump campaign.

And the dossier was all a complete lie.

Fusion GPS co-founder Glenn Simpson reportedly never even verified the Dossier claims before peddling the document to reporters.

These people should all be prosecuted and punished.
Instead many of these same operatives are still in office and still working against the president.

The Washington Examiner reported:

FBI and Justice Department officials have told congressional investigators in recent days that they have not been able to verify or corroborate the substantive allegations of collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign outlined in the Trump dossier.

The FBI received the first installment of the dossier in July 2016. It received later installments as they were written at the height of the presidential campaign, which means the bureau has had more than a year to investigate the allegations in the document. The dossier was financed by the Hillary Clinton campaign and compiled by former British spy Christopher Steele.

An August 24, 2017 subpoena from the House Intelligence Committee to the FBI and Justice Department asked for information on the bureaus efforts to validate the dossier. Specifically, the subpoena demanded any documents, if they exist, that memorialize DOJ and/or FBI efforts to corroborate, validate, or evaluate information provided by Mr. Steele and/or sub-sources and/or contained in the Trump Dossier.'

According to sources familiar with the matter, neither the FBI nor the Justice Department has provided documents in response to that part of the committees subpoena. But in face-to-face briefings with congressional staff, according to those sources, FBI and DOJ officials have said they cannot verify the dossiers charges of a conspiracy between the Russian government and the Trump campaign.

I'm Sure Kirsten Gillibrand Doesn't Want To Lead A War Against Men "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"




Yesterday I was all excited that Kirsten Gillibrand had boldly endorsed progressive reformer Marie Newman against Blue Dog Dan Lipinski. It was probably the first time I've praised Gillibrand since 2006 when she was first elected to Congress-- with a little help from Blue America. (Watch that Rickie Lee Jones/Squirrel Nut Zippers video we produced and promoted on upstate New York radio for her above.)

But then I looked a little closer at Gillibrand's Off the Sidelines PAC, largely funded by the same Wall Street crooks and corporate monstrosities that have made her the #1 recipient of tainted Financial Sector money in the Senate so far this cycle ($1,368,153). Since 2006 she has accepted $9,093,866 from the Financial Sector, more than any other current members of the Senate other than a couple who ran for president (John McCain and Marco Rubio) plus Schumer, McConnell, Rob Portman and Pat Toomey.

I looked at the contributions Gillibrand's PAC had handed out last cycle-- $172,000-- and couldn't find any pattern to the giving in terms of ideology. She gave to some of the most rotgut conservative Democrats like Kyrsten Sinema (Blue Dog-AZ), Cheri Bustos (Blue Dog-AZ), Gwen Graham (Blue Dog-FL), Stephanie Murphy (Blue Dog-FL), "ex"-Republican Monica Vernon, Blue Dog Gretchen Driskell (MI), Chris Matthews' conservative wife Kathleen (MD), and lots and lots of New Dems from the Republican wing of the Democratic Party, like Terri Sewell (AL), Debbie Wasserman Schultz (FL), Katherine Rice (NY), Emily Cain (ME), gun fanatic Ann Kirkpatrick(AZ), Ann Kuster (NH), and Suzan DelBene (WA), but also to a few very strong progressives like Zephyr Teachout (NY), Carol Shea-Porter (NH), Pramila Jayapal, Joseline Pena-Melnyk (MD), Mary Ellen Balchunis (PA), Donna Edwards (MD) and Lucy Flores (NV). All over the map, right? Yeah... except for one thing. No men. Gillibrand only gives to women. Not even one man was good enough? And then I realized she was also  giving to really terrible women candidates in primaries against really excellent male candidates. OK, that's how she plays...

People Who Say It Cannot Be Done Should Not Interrupt Those Who Are Doing It "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"




Normally, Democrats win districts where the PVI is D+something and Republicans win districts where the PVI is R+something. The higher the "something," the more likely that party will win. But it's not always the case. Conservative Blue Dog Collin Peterson represents a Minnesota district with a PVI of R+12 (although last year it was "just" R+6). Serial DCCC incompetence has guaranteed the reelection of Republican David Valadao in a D+5 California district again and again. Debbie Wasserman Schultz manipulated Florida politics for years so that her Republican crony Ileana Ros Lehtinen is in a deep blue district (D+5) and next door Republican Carlos Curbello represents a D+6 district.

Allison Ikley-Freeman's successful campaign for a state Senate seat in Oklahoma last week-- a seat where Trump beat Hillary 61.4-32.7%-- was in a very red district southwest of Tulsa. No one though she had any chance at all. It's the kind ion area where the DCCC always says-- and always wrongly-- that only a rich Republican-lite Blue Dog could win. But Allison is a young progressive who was outspent 3-1, campaigning on Bernie-like issues. And she's a proud lesbian, married to an African-American. She doesn't fit the DCCC model at all.

There are 5 Blue America-endorsed candidates we're always being told are in "impossible" races. None of them are as "impossible" as Allison's race was. And all 5 are being run by exceptionally good candidates:
James Thompson (KS) R+15
Jenny Marshall (NC) R+10
Tom Guild (OK) R+10
Derrick Crowe (TX) R+10
Dan Canon (IN) R+13

HUGE SCANDAL=> Ranking Democrat on Major Committee Accused of Sexual Harassment by Multiple Women: Report "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

As TGP previously reported, according to Axios reporter Jonathan Swan, claims against Democrat Al Franken are the very tip of the congressional iceberg.

The next wave, is coming, says Swan.

A HUGE scandal involving a ranking Democrat on a major committee is about to rock D.C.

Independent journalist Mike Cernovich teased from his Twitter account Sunday evening following the Axios report. Ranking Democrat on major committee accused of several harassment by multiple women. Huge scandal. Developing Cernovich tweeted.

As previously reported, Congress has a rampant sexual harassment problem. In fact the problem is so bad that female lawmakers and aides keep a creep list of men who are notorious for lewd behavior.

As if this couldnt get any worse, Rep. Jackie Speier (D-CA) told MSNBCs Chuck Todd Tuesday that taxpayers have paid over $15 million to settle sexual harassment lawsuits against members of Congress!

TAXPAYER MONEY.

Multiple females told CNN that elevators on Capitol Hill are known places for male lawmakers to prey on women. One woman said she still gets anxiety about being in an elevator alone with a man.

Jackie Speier testified in front of the House Administration Committee Tuesday that two members of Congress that one Republican and one Democrat engaged in sexual harassment.

One of the lawmakers accused is from California which has the rumor-mill going at full speed as to who it may be.

Who could it be? Some of the reaction from Trump supporters

Libertarian Thought in Colonial America "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

[This is chapter 33 from Rothbards 4-volume history of colonial America, Conceived in Liberty. Listen to the audio version.]

We have touched several times, especially in dealing with religious doctrines and institutions, upon the growth of libertarian views in eighteenth-century America. This extremely significant development was not a full-blown giant suddenly burst upon the European and American scenes. J. H. Hexter, in his brilliant Reappraisals in History, warns us of the dangerous temptation toward a linear view of historya view adopted in different ways by Whig and Marxist alike. The linear view assumes a steady march from past to present; Hexter cites the concept of the rising middle classes. Historians, he points out, noted that the English middle classes were dominant in the nineteenth century, and virtually nonexistent in the Middle Ages. Hence the linear assumption of a steady march upward by the middle classes century by century, a picture which Hexter indicates is far from the truth. But the important point here is that history often moves not in a smoothly linear trend but in varying patterns of rises and falls of trends shattered by contrary trends.

The growth of libertarian thought in eighteenth-century America was, to be sure, heavily influenced by a preceding growth in England, the main source of cultural influence on its colonies. But the pattern was not so simple. For it must be remembered that parts of America itself had experienced entirely libertarian institutions in the seventeenth century: for example, Rhode Island, North Carolina, and Pennsylvania. To a large extent, this libertarianism had been unarticulated. In short, the abundance of fertile virgin land in a vast territory enabled individualism to come to full flower in many areas. But only in such casesimportant to be sureas those of Roger Williams and Anne Hutchinson did practicing libertarianism receive theoretical articulation and groundwork. This does not mean that no theoretical rationale existed. Indeed, it exploded in a mighty surge during the height of the Puritan revolution; Roger Williams and his friends among the libertarian wing of that revolution helped each other develop these doctrines.

A fair wonderment, but not for someone who says I admire your writing and mostly agree with your analysis, given that I have written my analysis on this exact topic more times than any other.

The Nuclear Button "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

William Binney is the former National Security Agency (NSA) official who created NSAs mass surveillance program for digital information. He says that if the Russian government had conspired with Trump, hacked the Democratic National Committees computer, or in any way influenced the outcome of the last US presidential election, the National Security Agency would have the digital evidence. The fact that we have been listening to the unsubstantiated charges that comprise Russiagate for more than one year without being presented with a scrap of evidence is complete proof that Russiagate is entirely fake news.

The fake news originated with CIA director John Brennan and FBI director Comey conspiring with the DNC in an effort to discredit and unseat President Trump and at a minimum prevent him from damaging the vast power and profit of the military/security complex by normalizing relations with Russia.

Consider what this means. The directors of the CIA and FBI made up a totally false story about a newly elected President and fed the lies to the presstitutes and Congress. The presstitutes never asked for a drop of evidence and enlarged the Brennan/Comey lie with a claim that all 17 US intelligence agencies had concluded that Russia had interferred. In actual fact, a handful of carefuly selected people in three of the agenies had prepared, perhaps under duress, a conditional report that had no evidence behind it.

Time to buy old US gold coins

That it was fake news created to control President Trump was completely obvious, but corrupt security officials, corrupt senators and representatives, a corrupt DNC, and corrupt media used constant repetition to turn a lie into truth.

Having shoved Trump into the militarist camp, his enemies have turned on Trump as an unstable, volatile person who might push the button. Senator Bob Corker (R, TN) and Senator Chris Murphy (D,CT) are using the Senate Foreign Relations Committee to portray President Trump as a quixotic person who shouldnt have his finger on the nuclear button. We have gone full circle, from Trump who wants to defuse nuclear tensions to Trump who might push the button.

If Senators Corker and Murphy were really concerned and not just orchestrating a new way to attack Trump, they would bring out the fact that Russiagate is a hoax that has made nuclear war more likely. As I have pointed out, Washington has convinced Moscow that Washington is planning a surprise nuclear attack on Russia and also collecting Russian DNA for a tailored Russian-specific bio-weapon. I cannot think of anything more likely to trigger nuclear war than the escalated tensions that Russiagate is preventing Trump from reducing. See......

The Great Retirement Con "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

The Origins Of The Retirement Plan

Back during the Revolutionary War, the Continental Congress promised a monthly lifetime income to soldiers who fought and survived the conflict. This guaranteed income stream, called a pension, was again offered to soldiers in the Civil War and every American war since.

Since then, similar pension promises funded from public coffers expanded to cover retirees from other branches of government. States and cities followed suit extending pensions to all sorts of municipal workers ranging from policemen to politicians, teachers to trash collectors.

A pension is whats referred to as a defined benefit plan. The payout promised a worker upon retirement is guaranteed up front according to a formula, typically dependent on salary size and years of employment.

Understandably, workers appreciated the security and dependability offered by pensions. So, as a means to attract skilled talent, the private sector started offering them, too.

Time to buy old US gold coins

The first corporate pension was offered by the American Express Company in 1875. By the 1960s, half of all employees in the private sector were covered by a pension plan.

Off-loading Of Retirement Risk By Corporations

Once pensions had become commonplace, they were much less effective as an incentive to lure top talent. They started to feel like burdensome cost centers to companies.

As Americas corporations grew and their veteran employees started hitting retirement age, the amount of funding required to meet current and future pension funding obligations became huge. And it kept growing. Remember, the Baby Boomer generation, the largest ever by far in US history, was just entering the workforce by the 1960s.

Companies were eager to get this expanding liability off of their backs. And the more poorly-capitalized firms started defaulting on their pensions, stiffing those who had loyally worked for them.

So, its little surprise that the 1970s and 80s saw the introduction of personal retirement savings plans. The Individual Retirement Arrangement (IRA) was formed by the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) in 1974. And the first 401k plan was created in 1980.

These savings vehicles are defined contribution plans. The future payout of the plan is variable (i.e., unknown today), and will be largely a function of how much of their income the worker directs into the fund over their career, as well as the market return on the funds investments.

US Trained Syrias Al Qaeda Rebels "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

This article was first published in April 2017 following the accusations directed against the Syrian government of using chemical weapons against its own people.

The issue is now once more before the UN Security Council. Read carefully.

The Western media refute their own lies.

Not only do they confirm that the Pentagon has been training the terrorists in the use of chemical weapons, they also acknowledge the existence of a not so secret US-backed plan to launch a chemical weapon attack on Syria and blame it on Assads regime 

Londons Daily Mail in a 2013 article confirmed the existence of an Anglo-American project endorsed by the White House (with the assistance of Qatar) to wage a chemical weapons attack on Syria and place the blame on Bashar Al Assad.

(Update; April 8, 2017) Trumps decision to strike a Syrian airbase in retaliation for Assads alleged use of chemical weapons against his own people confirms that the False Flag Chemical Weapons attack scenario first formulated under Obama is still on the table.  Our analysis (including a large body of Global Research investigative reports) confirms unequivocally that Trump is lying, the Western media is lying and most of Americas allies are also lying.

The Attack on RT "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

This week the US Department of Justice Criminal Division forced the Russian-funded television network RT (formerly Russia Today) to register as a foreign agent under the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA). Failure to comply would have risked arrest of RTs management and seizure of its assets. The move comes on the heels of Senators recent demands that terrified tech giants Twitter, Facebook, and Google act as ideological filters.

With no discernable defenders among Americas media establishment, RT rightly denounced the selective FARA mandate as an attack on media freedom which it is. But more ominous is what the move against RT says about Americas rulers further intention to limit the sources of information available to its subjects.

As Daniel McAdams of the Ron Paul Institute writes:

RT America is a news organization operating in the United States that is funded at least partly by a foreign government. So is the BBC. So is Deutsche Welle, France24, Al-Jazeera, and numerous other foreign media organizations. It is assumed that they all to a degree reflect the editorial interests of those who pay the bills.

The same is true with other, non-state funded media outlets, of course. Its up to us to factor these things in when we consume media. Thats what it means to be a free people.

Time to buy old US gold coins

A core value in a free society is that our own government has zero power over what we read, what we watch, how we think, how we come to interpret current events, the conclusions we draw based on these inputs, and so on. These are private matters over which any government that is not tyrannical should have no sway.

The real insidiousness of tyrannical systems is that the government most lasciviously seeks control over most private spaces including the most private space called our brain, our intellect, our conscience. We must be free to follow our interests down whatever path they may lead us so that we may reach our own conclusions and then perhaps test them ourselves in the marketplace of ideas.

The attack on RT (and another Russian network, Sputnik, which evidently has not yet been given a deadline for registration) is a milestone in the degeneration of the...

Arrogant, Embarrassing, and Stupid "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

After getting thoroughly outmaneuvered at the U.N. Security Council meeting this week, U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley apologized in advance to the Syrian victims of the next chemical weapons attack.

The sheer arrogance of this statement is staggering.

As an American, Haley is an embarrassment and unfit to represent my interests at the U.N.  Her outburst was in response to Russia vetoing the latest attempt by her to bully the UNSC to accept a resolution extending the investigation into the April chemical weapons attack at Khan Sheikhoun in Syria.

This investigation, known as the JIM, is a complete joke.  In all the time the U.N. has been operating under it there has been no inspection of either the site of the attack itself or where it supposedly emanated from, the Syrian airbase at al-Shairat.

It has worked off of nothing but hearsay and corrupted data.

And with President Trumps knee-jerk bombing of that airbase, any investigation is likely moot anyway.  This move by Trump was one of the great geopolitical blunders of the year and it ensured that the U.S. would stay locked on this path to use this incident to bludgeon Russia diplomatically.

Its like Muellers special investigation into Russia-gate.  These are open wounds never intended to be treated.  The goal of them is to keep making cheap points in the media to demonize Russia and advance an agenda orthogonal to the interests of literally 98% of the planet.

So, in short, Haley and her neocon handlers in U.S. diplomatic and military circles are continuing to play childish games, using the UNSC as nothing more than a platform from which to disingenuously grandstand.

I know, in other news water is wet.

The problem for the U.S., however, is more and more of the world rolls its eyes at the shambolic mix of desperation and ineptitude exhibited by Haley and her entourage.

The final vote which ended this farce came after a wild week of resolutions and counter-resolutions which highlighted the growing discontent of the U.S.s allies on this issue.

The fact that multiple reliable U.S. allies abstained or voted with Russia when Bolivia introduced Russias draft resolution after Russia vetoed the JIM extension, including Japan, is telling of just how fed up with our duplicity everyone is.

The Demise of Dissent "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

In other words, well be left with officially generated and sanctioned fake news and approved dissent.

Weve all heard that the problem with the web is fake news, i.e. unsubstantiated or erroneous content thats designed to mislead or sow confusion.

The problem isnt just fake newsits the homogenization of the web, that is, the elimination or marginalization of independent voices of skepticism and dissent.

There are four drivers of this homogenization:

1. The suppression of dissent under the guise of ridding the web of propaganda and fake newsin other words, dissent is labeled fake news as a cover for silencing critics and skeptics.

2. The sharp decline of advertising revenues flowing to web publishers, both major outlets and small independent publishers like Of Two Minds.

3. The majority of advert revenues now flow into the coffers of the quasi-monopolies Facebook and Google.

4. Publishers are increasingly dependent on these quasi-monopolies for readers and visibility: any publisher who runs afoul of Facebook and Google and is sent to Digital Siberia effectively vanishes.

The reason why publishers advert incomes are plummeting are four-fold:

1. Most of the advert revenues in the digital market are being skimmed by Facebook and Google, as the chart below illustrates.

2. Ad blockers have become ubiquitous.

3. Few people click on the display ads that are the standard in desktop web publishing; in other words, these ads simply dont work very well, and much of the revenue being generated is click-fraud, i.e. bots not real people clicking on adverts because theyre interested in the product/service. As a result, advertisers are pulling away from these type of ads as they search for advert models that arent so vulnerable to click-fraud.

4. The web is increasingly shifting to mobile, which has fewer advert spots due to the small size of the display. In addition, major third-party advert services such as Google Adsense place restrictions on the number and size of ads being displayed on publishers sites.

The systemic erosion of advert revenues for everyone other than FB and Google is evident everywhere: for example, BuzzFeed Set to Miss Revenue Target, Signaling Turbulence in Media Prospects for a 2018 initial public offering by the high-profile publi...

Citric Acid: a Delight for Your Skin, Liver, and Brain "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Have you ever read a food or supplement label, saw that it contained citric acid, and wondered what the heck citric acid is? Though the name sounds half-natural half-synthetic, citric acid is a wonderful natural ingredient that can boost detoxification and support healthy digestion, energy levels, and kidney function. Here, well take a look at this intriguing ingredient and explain how the right type of citric acid can benefit your health.

What Is Citric Acid?

Citric acid is an organic acid found most abundantly in fruits (especially citrus fruits) like lemons, limes, grapefruit, pineapples, and oranges. Its chemical formula is C6H8O7. This organic acid was first isolated from a lemon using Aspergillus niger (a fungus) in 1784 by Carl Wilhelm Scheele. Since then, it has been considered safe for consumption and has GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe) status from the FDA.

How Citric Acid Affects Your Body and Why You Need It

Citric acid also offers certain benefits when its taken as a supplement. Citric acid encourages normal cellular respiration in human metabolism, which means that it plays a key role in igniting the metabolic process to create energy. Without it, the entire energy-producing mechanism in the body is inefficient, and the body is no longer vital enough to heal and detoxify.

In addition to its internal benefits, citric acid is also good for your skin. Citric acid is highly astringent; when its applied topically, it can temporarily shrink your pores, reduce oiliness and breakouts, regenerate skin cells, lighten and brighten skin, and even out skin tone. For these reasons, its commonly found in facial packs and masks.

Is Citric Acid Safe for Everyone?

Though it has coveted GRAS status from the FDA, and is safe in small amounts, too much citric acid can cause gastrointestinal distress, skin burning, tooth decay, and other ailments. To avoid these issues, do not consume pure citric acid. Additionally, avoid applying pure citric acid to your face and be careful when adding it to your DIY products as too much can burn and damage the skin.

Since much of the commercially used citric acid is sourced from GMO corn, I also recommend exercising caution if you see it listed as an ingredient in a food or supplement. Reputable companies will only use natural citric acid but its hard to tell the difference unless you check thei...

25 Most Shocking Medical Mistakes "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

By Dr. Mercola

Hospitals are typically thought of as places where lives are saved, but statistics show theyre actually one of the most dangerous places you could possibly enter.1,2 Each day, more than 40,000 harmful and/or lethal medical errors occur, placing the patient in a worse situation than what they came in with.3

According to a 2013 study,4,5 preventable medical errors kill around 440,000 patients each year more than 10 times the number of deaths caused by motor vehicle crashes. A 2016 study6 calculated the annual death toll to be around 250,000.

Medical Mistakes Are the Third Leading Cause of Death in the US

Either way, medical mistakes are the third leading cause of death in the U.S., and have been since at least 2000, when the late Dr. Barbara Starfield published her shocking conclusion that doctors kill 225,000 patients each year. Her findings were published in the Journal of the American Medical Association.7 Ironically, Starfield ended up a statistic herself.

Jack Ruby Told an FBI Informant To Watch The Fireworks "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Jack Ruby made comments on the morning of President John F Kennedys assassination to an FBI informant that suggested he knew what was about to take place, according to new records released Friday.

Ruby, who was eventually charged with killing Lee Harvey Oswald, asked an FBI informant if he would like to watch the fireworks with him as Kennedys motorcade drove through downtown Dallas just hours before the assassination took place.

The records are part of the JFK Files, which have been released incrementally over the past few months by the National Archives after being sealed for 25 years.

Oswald shot and killed JFK on November 22, 1963, in Dallas.

Just two days later Dallas nightclub owner Jack Ruby shot and killed Oswald as he was being transferred from city to county jail.

The interaction on the morning of the presidents murder wasnt relayed to the FBI until March 1977, despite being told to an FBI informant 14 years prior.  The informant was named as Bob Vanderslice, from Dallas.

The informant stated that on the morning of the assassination, Ruby contacted him and asked if he would like to watch the fireworks, an FBI record from April 6, 1977, says. That record was first highlighted by University of Virginia political analyst Larry Sabato, according to CBS.

He was with Jack Ruby and standing at the corner of the Postal Annex Building facing the Texas School Book Depository Building at the time of the shooting.

Immediately after the shooting, Ruby left and headed toward the area of the Dallas Morning News building.

In 1977 Vanderslice told the FBI that Ruby didnt say anything to him immediately following the assassination.

However, after her was arrested for killing Oswald, Ruby was also arrested on an unrelated charge. Vanderslice got to know Ruby better when he was in the Dallas County Jail.

Nuclear Official Says Hillary Clinton Engaged In Extortion Secret FBI Informant Is Set To Blow Open Uranium-One Scandal (VIDEO) "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

According to Clinton Cash, author Peter Schweizer, then Senator Hillary Clinton extorted a Kazakh official involved in the Uranium-One deal. It is possible Schweizer misspoke and meant to say Secretary of State Clinton.

The Breitbart News editor-at-large did not go further into detail, merely alluding to the fact that the secret FBI informants testimony on the Uranium-One scandal next week will be very interesting.

Transcript via Grabien:

SCHWEIZER: Well, I have to say upfront, I have not met him. I dont know him. But, what I understand by looking at legal documents involving this case. This guy was an insiders insider. He was being paid by the Russian company $50,000 a month to serve as a lobbyist. And in the legal filings, what you find is his job was to basically carry the flag for this entity in Washington, D.C. And that job included setting up meetings with high ranking administration officials.

This would have been the Obama Administration. People on Capitol Hill. And other elite influence, you know, makers. So, he was working in a very, very high level. And what has leaked out seems to indicate he has got a lot of information that relates specifically to uranium one. So, its going to be very exciting and I think its important to point out, judge, also, remember, we already have a foreign government official saying that involving uranium one that he and his fellow government employees were extorted by the Clintons then senator Hillary Clinton.

This comes from the head of their atomic agency saying that Senator Clinton refused to meet with officials unless and until they granted uranium concessions to ended up giving more than $100 million to the Clinton Foundation. So we have got that testimony. We have got this new witness coming out. Its going to get very interesting here in the weeks ahead.

William D. Campbell has come forward as the secret FBI informant in the Uranium-One deal. The informant revealed he is eager to testify because of his concerns about Russias activities in the United States, but declined to comment further,...

Mystery Surrounds Sudden Death of Mega Donor To Hillary Clinton & Barack Obama "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Steve Mostyn, Democrat mega donor to Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, died after a sudden onset and battle with a mental health issue.

While the death appears to be suicide, the Mostyn family has yet to comment on what the cause of death is. 

Mostyn, a famous Houston-area trial lawyer was one of the countrys biggest donors to Democrat causes.

Chron.com reports:

The Mostyns were co-founders of the Ready for Hillary PAC, a political action committee supporting Clintons unsuccessful campaign for president. At the same time, state campaign finance records show he contributed to a police-affiliated PAC that supported some Republican primary candidates.

In 2016, Mostyn gave Clinton $1 million.

The Statesman reports:

The Mostyns were particularly active in the 2012 national elections, donating $5.2 million to political action committees backing President Barack Obama and Democrats in Congress, establishing the couple as among the nations top 20 donors to political causes that year, according to the Center for Public Integrity.

Questions are being raised after the cause of death was withheld. Mostyn did not have a history of mental illness.

Mostyn made millions by suing insurance companies after Hurricane Rita in 2005 and Hurricane Ike in 2008 ravaged the state of Texas.

According to the Daily Caller, the Foundation for Accountability and Civic Trust (FACT) issued a formal complaint against Hillary Clintons campaign for coordinating with Mostyns Ready for Hillary Super PAC.

FACT has asked other federal agencies to investigate the Clinton campaigns dealings. The watchdog sent a letter to the IRS asking it to investigate a $350,000 payment that the Clinton Foundation made to Clintons 2008 presidential campaign for an email list of potential donors.

If Trump Is Willing To Stiff Texas On Disaster Relief, Imagine How Blue States Would Fare! "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"


Dayna Steele virtually put her campaign for Congress on hold for nearly a month in the aftermath of the devastation Hurricane Harvey brought to the Houston area so she and her campaign volunteers could work with their neighbors on the immediate effects of the storm. Now Texans-- not to mention folks in Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands-- are waiting for help from the Trump Regime. It's not coming. We mentioned the other day that Ryan's tax scam bill cuts out earthquake repairs deductions for Californians. Hurricane deductions-- primarily in red and purple states-- was left intact... but the White House doesn't want to come up with the money Texas needs to get the Houston and Gulf Coast fully back on its feet.

Dayna explained that "The goal of Trump and his fellow swamp dwellers is to eventually cut off as much government funding as possible. The less money the government needs to operate, the better off the wealthy and corporations are in this country. That means less help during and after disasters, the eventual elimination of Social Security and Medicare/Medicaid, and the elimination of programs that help kids, the elderly, education healthcare, job training and more." Ironically, there are some very conservative Texas Republicans who are seeing it a lot like Dayna is. There's nothing to the right of Texas Governor Greg Abbott. On Friday he called Trump's $44 billion request to Congress for disaster relief for the effects of Harvey, Irma and Maria "completely inadequate... and does not live up to what the president wants to achieve. The president has told me privately what hes said publicly, and that is he wants to be the builder president. The president has said that he wants this to be the best recovery from a disaster ever."

The White House told him to pay for his own disaster relief. Damage in Texas alone is estimated to exceed $180 billion. Huckabee's contemptible...

If you thought the sexual harassment allegations would stop at Senator Al Franken, youre sadly mistaken. According to Axios reporter Jonathan Swan, claims against the Democrat lawmaker are the very tip of the congressional iceberg.

The next wave, is coming, says Swan.

Members of Congress with histories of mistreating women should be extremely nervous. Major outlets, including CNN, are dedicating substantial newsroom resources to investigating sexual harassment allegations against numerous lawmakers.

Senile Hillary Brags About Bill Clinton Not Using Twitter While President 5 Years Before It Was Founded [VIDEO] "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Yesterday, Hillary bragged that her rapist husband Bill Clinton actually got [policy] done during his presidency and that he didnt tweet about it. Among the many problems with that short statement, is the fact that Twitter wasnt founded until 2006 Bill Clinton served as president until 2001 so in other words THERE WAS NO TWITTER WHEN HE WAS PRESIDENT.

The Dolphins Kenny Stills, Julius Thomas and Michael Thomas took a knee before their game against Tampa Bay.

Giants defensive lineman Olivier Vernon took a knee, as he has done most of the season. The opposing Chiefs stood scattered on their sideline, though cornerback Marcus Peters remained in the tunnel until it was over.

Al Franken Wont Resign for Sexual Assault Of Course He Wont, Hes a Democrat! "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

On Thursday Senator Al Franken was accused of groping, unwanted kissing by radio anchor and model Leeann Tweeden.

Franken couldnt deny it.
There was photo evidence.

Radio anchor Leeann Tweeden traveled with Al Franken on a USO tour in December 2006.

Tweeden described the sexual abuse on the KABC website where she works as an announcer.

There was even a photo of Franken kissing Tweeden on stage.

But Al Franken wont resign.

He is a Democrat, after all. Only Republicans are expected to step down after accusations of sexual impropriety.

Instead Franken will contemplate on his behavior over the holiday.
The Washington Examiner reported:

Sen. Al Franken, D-Minn., plans on staying in Congress for the time being after a sexual misconduct accusation rocked the up and coming senator last week.

A spokesperson for Franken said no, the senator will not resign in the wake of the accusation.

He is spending time with his family in Washington, D.C., and will be through the Thanksgiving holiday, and hes doing a lot of reflecting, the spokesperson told The Minneapolis Star-Tribune.

Leann Tweeden, a current radio anchor at Los Angeles station KABC, wrote a story accusing Franken of kissing and groping her while the two were in Afghanistan together in 2006.

A photo was also published in which Franken is pretending to grope her breasts while she slept.

Man Shouts Fake News Live On CNN During Judge Moore Hit Piece (VIDEO) "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Judge Roy Moore supporters are furious with the mainstream media and political elites last-ditch effort to sink the Alabama GOP Senate candidates campaign. 

Video credit: Daily Shit Show Current & Political News Channel

During a live Sunday broadcast of CNN Newsroom, with reporter Nick Valencia, an Alabama man shouted off camera, Fake news, fake news fake news, all of you are conspiring against Roy Moore!

Valencia was reporting on the coordinated attack on Roy Moore, where three Alabama newspapers called on voters to reject the Judge.

The three newspapers, all under the Alabama Media Group umbrella, featured the headline at the top of their front pages in block lettering STAND FOR DECENCY, REJECT ROY MOORE, reported Breitbart News.

Breitbart News reports:

The 1,200-word editorial that accompanied those headlines urged Alabama voters to dismiss what those beyond the states borders have to say about the race.

Alabamians have never cared about what the rest of country thinks of them. And we do not expect all the handwringing from national pundits, conservative or liberal, to make much of a difference. This election isnt about what a late-night comedian may think of Alabama or whether Sean Hannity can sell advertisements; its not about Saturday Night Live or Mitch McConnell. Its not about Breitbart or National Democrats. It is about the moral values of the people of Alabama.

Do not make your voting decision based on who it will affect on a national stage. Vote based on who it will affect in your hometown.

Fired FBI Director James Comey Trolls President Trump Over LaVar Ball Comments "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Former FBI Director James Comey, apparently still smarting over being unceremoniously fired by President Donald Trump earlier this year, took to Twitter Sunday afternoon to troll Trump over the presidents response to LaVar Ball, the ungrateful father of one of the three UCLA basketball players freed by China from shoplifting charges after Trump personally intervened with Chinas President Xi Jinping.

Comey, as is his haughty, cowardly modus operandi, used a historic quote to attack Trump indirectly rather than take him head on, just as Comey did when he anonymously leaked FBI documents to the press to attack Trump.

A good leader takes a little more than his share of the blame, a little less than his share of the credit. Arnold H. Glasow(1905-1998)

Earlier on Sunday, Trump had tweeted, Now that the three basketball players are out of China and saved from years in jail, LaVar Ball, the father of LiAngelo, is unaccepting of what I did for his son and that shoplifting is no big deal. I should have left them in jail!

As reported earlier by TGPs Joshua Caplan, Trump was responding to disrespectful comments by LaVar Ball made to ESPN.

Talking Turkey: A How-To "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Maybe it is Thanksgiving, maybe it is Friendsgiving. Youve been bragging all over town about the feast you are going to serve up. Your family, friends, neighbors, your bar buddies and your bail bondsman will be arriving at your pad in a number of hours. The simple truth of the matter is you have no idea how to roast a turkey. Or maybe you thought you knew how but then you caught the end of a Food Network segment proclaiming that youve been doing it wrong all these years. Relax. Have an eggnog.

Cooking is for everyone, regardless of your budget or experience. And more than anything it should be fun! Life is stressful enough in the age of latent capitalist apocalypse!

It seems every year about this time a cast of celebrity chefs begin making the rounds, presenting the public new recipes for what is a traditional American meal. Two years ago was all about the wet brine. But no, we learned last year wet brines sap turkey of its natural flavor, dry brining works best. Thats the beauty of food, there are a million ways of cooking basic traditional staples. It is also a side effect of the hyper-commercialization of food and can be confusing.

Heres a simple recipe for roasting turkey.* You might want to do some research on your own and decide which brining technique you prefer best or skip that step entirely. These instructions will work whether you have brined or not.

We recommend practicing a bit in advance on a chicken, essentially the turkeys smaller cousin. Just adjust the ratios of butter and seasoning by about a third or half depending on the difference in pounds between the two winged creatures. After youve practiced a bit, you might want to put your own stamp on the animal. Try adding a teaspoon or two of paprika or cayenne, or substituting creole spices or Old Bay for fresh herbs. I like to sear my birds on the stovetop using a large, cast-iron enamel pan before putting them in the oven. Maybe Ill share that recipe next year, but were keeping it basic this time.

Ingredients

1 fresh turkey (1012 pounds)

1 stick of butter

1 tablespoon each of finely chopped parsley, rosemary, thyme and sage

1 lemon

1 head of garlic, protruding stalk and papery exterior removed

2 tablespoons of salt

1 tablespoon of pepper

Large roasting pan
