Facebooks Purge Of Political Pages Fuels Delusion Of Insurgent Threats To Democracy "IndyWatch Feed"

Facebooks purge of more than 500 pages and 250 accounts ahead of midterm elections in the United States represents a massive trend to police social media activity in ways that put freedom of expression at risk.

This trend effectively discourage users from engaging in radical politics and may be viewed as part of a counterinsurgency effort by a powerful social media company to assure a passive majority of Americans that they are properly guarding a widely used platform from alleged threats to democracy.

On October 11, Nathaniel Gleicher, Facebooks head of cybersecurity policy, and Oscar Rodriguez, the companys product manager, published a press release about the purge.

Were removing 559 pages and 251 accounts that have consistently broken our rules against spam and coordinated inauthentic behavior, Gleicher and Rodriguez stated. Many were using fake accounts or multiple accounts with the same names and posted massive amounts of content across a network of groups and pages to drive traffic to their websites.

According to Gleicher and Rodriguez, these techniques were used by groups and pages to make content appear more popular than it truly was on Facebook.

Both suggested some of the pages and accounts were ad farms that misled users into believing they were forums for legitimate political debate.

Unfortunately, Facebook offered minimal transparency on the action. Administrators with removed pages or accounts were apparently given no specifics other than a notice that they were shut down.

Several of the pages and accounts removed were right-wing and known for boosting President Donald Trump and his administrations agenda. There were also dozens of progressive or left-wing pages, which were taken down.

Anti-Media, an anti-establishment independent media site with two million followers, had its page removed. Carey Wedler, editor at Anti-Media, did not lose her personal Facebook page with over 100,000 followers, but almost simultaneously, Twitter sent a notice that Wedlers account was suspended.

The Free Thought Project, Reverb Press, Press For Truth, and Rachel Blevins, an RT America correspondent, had their pages taken down.

Pages that document abuse by police were removedPolice the Police, Filming Cops, Cop Block, and Cop Logic. Both Police the Police and Filming Cops each had over a million followers.

There are legitimate reasons that accounts and pages coordinate with each otherits the bedrock of fundraising campaigns and grassroots organizations, Gleicher and Rodriguez stated. But the difference is that these groups are upfront about who they are, and what theyre up to.

Yet, none of the aforementioned pages, which have protested their removal...


Honduran Migrant Caravan EXPLODES to 4,000 People as it Approaches Mexico-Guatemala Border "IndyWatch Feed"

On Wednesday, the caravan of mostly Honduran migrants exploded to a whopping 4,000 people as it approached the Mexico-Guatemala border, despite President Trumps warnings to cut off U.S. aid.

The Mexican government flooded the Mexico-Guatemala border with hundreds of police officers in anticipation of a stand off with the migrants.

President Trump meant business when he issued a strong warning to Honduran President Hernandez Tuesday over the migrant caravan marching northbound to United States.

The organizer of the caravan, Bartolo Fuentes was detained in Guatemala Tuesday and it was reported Honduran migrants had splintered off into smaller groups in order to travel undetected as they made their trek to the Mexican border. Reuters reported late Tuesday that some Honduran migrants had headed back to Honduras, however; it appears the caravan has grown as it make its way through Guatemala.

The Associate Press reported Wednesday that the Hondurans were spotted in Chiquimula, Guatemala marching through rain, determined to make it the Mexican border.

Because the migrant caravan has grown to over 4,000 people, the Mexican government has sent an additional 500 police to its border with Guatemala, reported NBC News.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo will be traveling to Mexico on Friday to discuss plans to stop the caravan.

 A caravan of migrants fleeing Honduras has grown to 4,000 and the Mexican government has sent an additional 500 federal police to its border with Guatemala in anticipation of their arrival, according to U.S. government documents obtained by NBC News.

Children In Cages "IndyWatch Feed"

Reporting for The Hill the week, JulieGrace Brufke-- whose byline I've never seen before so maybe she's new and about to learn something valuable-- made a grievous error in the opening two words of an important story, Democrats in swing districts advised to avoid talking about immigration. The error she made-- common inside the Beltway where people don't know shit from shinola-- was in referring to Third Way, the far right of the Democratic Party and the far right of the Republican wing of the Democratic Party that works assiduously against progressives and progressive ideas, as "left-leaning." How about "right-leaning," a far more accurate description of the Wall Street-funded group? That said, let's take a look at what JulieGrace was reporting.

Basically the Republican wing of the Democratic Party avoids an issue that resonates with millions of actual Democrats: Trump's inhumane, racist, xenophobic immigration agenda. Doug Pagitt, the pastor and executive director of Vote Common Good in the video up top, just reminded me that "One of Jesus most famous quotes from Matthew 19 is 'what God has brought together no one should ever separate.'" Keeping families together goes beyond politics for tens of millions of American families. But when it does come to politics, Alan Grayson reminded me of something else, something darker: "The Democrats in charge," he warned me yesterday, "want other Democrats to run not as Democrats, but rather as not-Republicans. To do that, however, you have to be able to explain why you are not a Republican. And now our party leaders dont want that, either. The issue-phobia that afflicts the party is now chronic, pervasive, and possibly fatal."



JUDICIAL WATCH: FBI Docs Detail Weiner Laptop/Hillary Clinton Email Find Shortly Before 2016 Election "IndyWatch Feed"

Once again Judicial Watch is doing the heavy lifting.

Conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch announced Wednesday it received 45 FBI documents that confirm a significant portion of the over 340,000 emails found on Anthony Weiners laptop were between then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and her aide Huma Abedin.

Via Judicial Watch:

(Washington, DC)  Judicial Watch announced today that it has received 45 pages of FBI documents that reveal a significant number of 340,000 emails on the laptop of disgraced former Congressman Anthony Weiner were between the former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and her top aide Huma Abedin.

Judicial Watch obtained the documents as the result of a September 2018 Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit filed after the Justice Department did not act on two FOIA requests for Anthony Weiner laptop investigation documents, including any Clinton emails found on the laptop (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of Justice (No.1:18-cv-02105)).

The new documents include an October 3, 2016, email to a FBI official in New York that reads:

Just putting this on the record because of the optics of this case.

During the course of my review of a computer seized from Anthony Weiner, a seizure and search of which was authorized by an SDNY [Southern District of New York] Search Warrant, I encountered approximately/at least 340,000 emails stored on the computer. The large number of emails appears to be a result of a mail client program installed on that computer (such as Outlook) that pulled emails from servers belonging to both Ant...


Bolsonaro quer o Brasil de 50 anos atrs. Isso seria um desastre. "IndyWatch Feed"

fcil e claro saber o que o candidato Jair Bolsonaro contra. O Brasil que o deputado quer, porm, bem mais turvo. O seu plano de governo simplista e Bolsonaro contradiz propostas de aliados constantemente isso quando elas vo alm dos clichs e palavras de ordem. A nica chance de entender quais so nas raras entrevistas e em seus monlogos transmitidos no Facebook.

Ontem, Bolsonaro falou o seguinte a uma rdio AM de Barretos, interior de So Paulo: ns queremos um Brasil semelhante quele que tnhamos h 40, 50 anos atrs. Pode ter certeza que juntos chegaremos l.

Voltando o meio sculo proposto por Bolsonaro, camos em 1967 no comeo da ditadura militar, um ano antes do AI-5. No h novidades na defesa de posies retrgradas por Bolsonaro e muito menos da ditadura. O candidato j deixou muito claro seu apreo pelo regime totalitrio e por prticas como a tortura, por exemplo.

Mas a defesa explcita do Brasil de 1967 chama a ateno porque o Brasil de 50 anos atrs era pior. difcil saber o que Bolsonaro quer resgatar daquele Brasil, e talvez nem o prprio saiba exatamente.
O Brasil melhorou em diversos aspectos. inegvel que o nosso arremedo de social-democracia, consolidado a duras penas em 1988, trouxe avanos considerveis em pontos como sade e educao. Para ajudar a refrescar a memria e deixar claro o quanto a democracia tornou o Brasil um lugar melhor para se viver resolvemos relembrar como era o Brasil de 50 anos atrs.

Ainda no havia o Sistema nico de Sade, o SUS. Foi s em 1988 que o Brasil deu a todos o direito de um atendimento gratuito de sade ainda que muitas vezes ele deixe a desejar.

Antes disso, a maioria da populao no tinha acesso a qualquer tipo de servio. A cobertura de sade era garantida apenas parcela da populao empregada formalmente, que era contribuinte da Previdncia.



State Laws Targeting Israel Boycotts Fail Again in US Federal Court "IndyWatch Feed"

From the American Civil Liberties Union:
Laws Targeting Israel Boycotts Fail Again in Court
By Brian Hauss, Staff Attorney, ACLU Speech, Privacy, and Technology Project
SEPTEMBER 28, 2018 | 4:00 PM
* TAGS Rights of Protesters Free Speech
A new wave of state laws that try to limit Americans constitutional right to engage in political boycotts is now 0 for 2 in federal court.

On Thursday night, a federal court blocked Arizona from enforcing a law requiring state contractors to certify that they are not participating in boycotts of Israel. The court agreed with the ACLU that the law likely violates contractors free speech rights under the First Amendment.

A restriction of ones ability to participate in collective calls to oppose Israel unquestionably burdens the protected expression of companies wishing to engage in such a boycott, U.S. District Court Judge Diane J. Humetewa wrote in her decision [1] issuing a preliminary injunction against the law.

This is the second federal court to consider this type of boycott ban, and they both came to the same conclusion. Earlier this year, the ACLU successfully blocked [2] a remarkably similar law in Kansas. In that case, the court held that the First Amendment protects citizens right to band together and express collectively their dissatisfaction with the injustice and violence they perceive, as experienced both by Palestinians and Israeli citizens.

We filed the Arizona lawsuit on behalf of Mikkel Jordahl, an attorney who has contracted with the state for the last 12 years to provide legal services on behalf of incarcerated individuals at the Coconino County Jail. Jordahl opposes Israels settlement expansion in Palestinian territories and what he considers Israels unwillingness to ensure the rights of Palestinians under its rule.

As a supporter of boycott campaigns targeting Israel, he refuses to purchase goods and services offered by companies operating in Israeli settlements in the occupied Palestinian territories. He wants to extend the boycott to his one-person law firm and to provide legal support to other boycott activists.

But Arizonas law, enacted in August 2016, forbids state contractors from engaging in those activities. Last year, when Jordahl was asked to sign the no-boycott certification in order to renew his contract with Coconino County, he refused.

As the court in our case recognized, Arizonas law directly violates state contractors First Amendment right to participate in collective efforts to advocate for social change. The right to participate in political boycotts was clearly established by the Supreme Court in NAACP v. Claiborne Hardware, a 1982 decision holding that the Fi...



This will be an unpopular opinion, but I didn't think the New York Times profile of Proud Boys founder Gavin McInnes was as bad as many people thought it was. I say that partly because it I approach any Times profile of a rabble-rousing hatemonger with abysmally low expectations. There are reasons to criticize the McInnes profile, but it has a long way to go before it reaches the standards set by the November 2017 Times profile of Ohio neo-Nazi Tony Horvater, who was portrayed as just an ordinary guy trying to get through the day in this vale of tears:

HUBER HEIGHTS, Ohio Tony and Maria Hovater were married this fall. They registered at Target. On their list was a muffin pan, a four-drawer dresser and a pineapple slicer.

Ms. Hovater, 25, was worried about Antifa bashing up the ceremony. Weddings are hard enough to plan for when your fianc is not an avowed white nationalist.

But Mr. Hovater, in the days leading up to the wedding, was somewhat less anxious. There are times when it can feel toxic to openly identify as a far-right extremist in the Ohio of 2017. But not always. He said the election of President Trump helped open a space for people like him, demonstrating that it is not the end of the world to be attacked as the bigot he surely is: You can just say, Yeah, so? And move on.

It was a weeknight at Applebees in Huber Heights, a suburb of Dayton, a few weeks before the wedding. The couple, who live in nearby New Carlisle, were shoulder to shoulder at a table, young and in love.
McInnes, of course, is a hatemonger of a certain level of celebrity rather than an everyman, so he was unlikely to get this treatment. But he might have gotten this treatment:

Measured against that standard, the McInnes profile is downright hard-hitting.

By which I mean it's moderately negative. Consider the opening paragraph:
For an hour or so, he railed about socialism and political correctness to an audience...

Congress Members Take Firm Stance Against Press Freedom, Pen Letter to Ecuador Demanding Julian Assange Be Turned Over to Authorities "IndyWatch Feed"

Representatives Eliot L. Engel (D-NY), Ranking Member of the House Committee on Foreign Affairs, and Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL), Chair Emeritus of the Committee, have sent a letter to Ecuadorian President Lenn Moreno demanding that Julian Assange be handed over to authorities.

The firm stance against press freedom comes as Ecuador is preparing to restore the Assanges communications with strict limitations that will not allow him to properly continue his work as a publisher.

The letter threatens that the United States will be unwilling to provide economic cooperation with Ecuador unless the WikiLeaks founder and political refugee is handed over.

Many of us in the United States Congress are eager to move forward in collaborating with your government on a wide array of issues, from economic cooperation to counternarcotics assistance to the possible return of a United States Agency for International Development mission to Ecuador. However, in order to advance on these crucial matters, we must first resolve a significant challenge created by your predecessor, Rafael Correa the status of Julian Assange, the members wrote in their letter.

The threatening letter continues on to say that Engel and Ros-Lehtinen are very concerned with Assanges continued asylum at the Ecuadorian embassy, which he entered in 2012.

Most recently, we were particularly disturbed to learn that your government restored Mr. Assanges access to the Internet. On numerous occasions, Mr. Assange has compromised the national security of the United States. He has done so by publicly releasing classified government documents along with confidential materials from individuals connected to our countrys 2016 presidential election. As you yourself have noted, he has repeatedly used his standing in the international media to meddle in the affairs of foreign governments such as Spain and the United Kingdom. This has frayed Ecuadors relations with like-minded governments. Mr. Assange also remains wanted by British authorities for a bail violation. It is clear that Mr. Assange remains a dangerous criminal and a threat to global security, and he should be brought to justice, the letter states.

The tone remains stern as the let...

LEFT-WING VIOLENCE: Two Republican Candidates Punched in Minnesota "IndyWatch Feed"

Shane Mekeland, Sarah Anderson

Thank you, Maxine Waters and Eric Holder.

Two Republican candidates were physically assaulted in Minnesota by violent left-wing lunatics this week.

Minnesota state representative candidate, Shane Mekeland suffered a concussion after he got sucker-punched at a Benton County restaurant.

Minnesota state representative, Sarah Anderson was punched in the arm by a man after she confronted him for destroying Republican campaign signs.

Free Beacon reported:

First-time state representative candidate Shane Mekeland suffered a concussion after getting sucker punched while speaking with constituents at a restaurant in Benton County. Mekeland told the Free Beacon he has suffered memory lossforgetting Rep. Andersons name at one point in the interviewand doctors tell him he will have a four-to-six week recovery time ahead of him. He said he was cold cocked while sitting at a high top table at a local eatery and hit his head on the floor.

I was so overtaken by surprise and shock and if this is the new norm, this is not what I signed up for, he said.

Benton County Sheriff Troy Heck told the Free Beacon that his department has interviewed the alleged assailant. Investigators are awaiting medical records about the extent of Mekelands injuries before referring the case to the local district attorneys office. He expects those results to come in the next week.

Sarah Anderson was attacked by a man who called himself an anarchist after she confronted him for kicking down Republican yard signs.

This is the lefta man will attack a womanthey have zero morals, zero boundaries.

State Rep. Sarah Anderson (R-Plymouth) was campaigning Sunday when she saw a man kicking yard signs touting her and other GOP candidates.

JUST IN: U.S. Official Arrested, Criminally Charged For Leaking Confidential Documents in Russia Probe "IndyWatch Feed"

On Tuesday, a U.S. official was arrested and criminally charged for leaking confidential financial documents relating to former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort, the Russian embassy and accused Russian spy Maria Butina.

40-year-old Natalie May Edwards, the senior advisor in the Treasury Departments Financial Crimes Enforcement Network who was arrested Tuesday, leaked the documents to Jason Leopold, a reporter for BuzzFeed according to a Wednesday announcement by Manhattan federal prosecutors.

Did Natalie May Edwards also leak Michael Cohens financial information to creepy porn lawyer, Michael Avenatti?

Reuters reported:

Natalie May Edwards, a senior adviser in the Treasury Departments Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN), was arrested on Tuesday and charged with unauthorized disclosure of suspicious activity reports, according to the office of U.S. Attorney Geoffrey Berman. She was expected to make an initial appearance in Virginia federal court later in the day.

Suspicious activity reports are submitted by banks to alert law enforcement to potentially illegal transactions. Prosecutors said that beginning in October 2017, Edwards disclosed suspicious activity reports connected to Manafort and his longtime associate Richard Gates, the Russian embassy and accused Russian spy Maria Butina.

The disclosures were reported in a series of articles in BuzzFeed related to Special Counsel Robert Muellers investigation of possible coordination between U.S. President Donald Trumps 2016 election campaign and Russia, according to prosecutors.

REPORT: Robert Mueller to Release Core Findings in His Trump-Russia Report Immediately After Midterm Elections "IndyWatch Feed"

Special Counsel Robert Mueller is expected to release his Russia report immediately after the midterm elections according to a new report by Bloomberg.

Mueller is reportedly going to give the core findings to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein immediately after the 2018 midterms as he faces pressure to produce indictments or shut down his farce of an investigation.

Bloomberg reported:

Special Counsel Robert Mueller is expected to issue findings on core aspects of his Russia probe soon after the November midterm elections as he faces intensifying pressure to produce more indictments or shut down his investigation, according to two U.S. officials.

Specifically, Mueller is close to rendering judgment on two of the most explosive aspects of his inquiry: whether there were clear incidents of collusion between Russia and Donald Trumps 2016 campaign, and whether the president took any actions that constitute obstruction of justice, according to one of the officials, who asked not to be identified speaking about the investigation.

That doesnt necessarily mean Muellers findings would be made public if he doesnt secure unsealed indictments. The regulations governing Muellers probe stipulate that he can present his findings only to his boss, who is currently Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein. The regulations give a special counsels supervisor some discretion in deciding what is relayed to Congress and what is publicly released.

Muellers fraud investigation into the Trump-Russia hoax has cost taxpayers millions of dollars.

The entire Trump-Russia narrative was cooked up by Hillary Clinton with her DNC-funded Russia dossier.

Obamas crooked FBI then took Hillarys unverified Russia dossier to the FISC and obtained a FISA warrant and three subsequent renewals on Trump campaign advisor Carter Page so she could spy on her opponent.

Begin By Ending Cooperation in the Yemen War "IndyWatch Feed"

I dont agree with David French about much but I didnt find anything to disagree about in his latest column which asks if it is possible for Trump to be at least as tough on Saudi Arabia as hes been on Canada. Its rare that writers at the National Review express opinions on foreign policy that are shared by a lot of people on the left, but here we have an example:

At a minimum, we can and should stop facilitating the Saudi bombing campaign in Yemen, a campaign that depends on American weapons and American help and is murderously indiscriminate.

In this day and age, Im inclined to latch onto any bipartisan agreement I can find, and I also agree with this:

Republicans and Democrats alike have looked the other way as the Saudis exported radical Islamic theologies, funded jihadists, and oppressed their own citizens. Weve consistently treated the Saudi government as if we need them more than they need us.

Of course, our relationship with the Saudi regime was forged in the immediate aftermath of World War Two, and the Eastern Front of that conflict, at least, largely followed a logic that is impossible to understand outside of the context of energy resources. Hitler made a race for the Caucasus rather than concentrating all his troops for a crushing blow against Moscow because he needed the fuel, and its the same reason that was so interested in taking over and holding Romania. Tanks and planes require vast amounts of fuel and an alliance with Saudi Arabia (and, initially, Iran) gave us a chance to not worry about that factor in any confrontation in Europe with the Soviets.

At the time, the culture, politics, and welfare of the people of the Arabian Peninsula were far down the list of American national security concerns, and we were primarily interested in applying the lessons wed learned from the war so that wed be better positioned in any future conflict. In retrospect, we might have made some different choices, but its doubtful we would have risked having that oil and gas fall into the hands of the Soviets who enjoyed enough of those resources as it was.

With so much money available, we naturally saw some of our purer motives become corrupted over time, and theres not much to be proud about when we look back at our relationship with the House of Saud. Particularly after 1979, the relationship has curdled badly and we already had the experience of blowback in 2001, when we were attacked on our own soil by Saudi terrorists.

Im probably more forgiving of our Saudi policy than many on the left, mainly because I recognize the legiti...

Is the Yemen Assassination Program "Awesome"? "IndyWatch Feed"

BuzzFeed News published a troubling article today about an American company named Spear Operations Group that is run by Abraham Golan, a charismatic Hungarian Israeli security contractor who lives outside of Pittsburgh. Mr. Golan openly admits that he ran a targeted assassination program in Yemen on behalf of the government of the United Arab Emirates:

There was a targeted assassination program in Yemen, he told BuzzFeed News. I was running it. We did it. It was sanctioned by the UAE within the coalition.

The article begins with an operation that went haywire back in 2015, while President Obama was our commander in chief. Mr. Golans mission was to kill a member of the Muslim Brotherhood, a group that is a whole lot more socially and politically complex than is commonly understood in the United States. To the Saudi regime and their Gulf allies, the Brotherhood is a terrorist organization. Yet, in 2012, Egypt elected Mohamed Morsi, a member of the Brotherhood, as their president.

There is no simple way to explain the development and role of the Brotherhood, and that can be demonstrated by looking at their professed beliefs. On the one hand, it would be accurate to say that theyre religious fundamentalists who believe the Quran should be the central organizing basis of political society. On the other hand, theyve become fairly consistent in fighting (at least when out of power) for many key and core American principles.

According to a spokesman on its English-language website, the Muslim Brotherhood believes in reform, democracy, freedom of assembly, press, etc.

We believe that the political reform is the true and natural gateway for all other kinds of reform. We have announced our acceptance of democracy that acknowledges political pluralism, the peaceful rotation of power and the fact that the nation is the source of all powers. As we see it, political reform includes the termination of the state of emergency, restoring public freedoms, including the right to establish political parties, whatever their tendencies may be, and the freedom of the press, freedom of criticism and thought, freedom of peaceful demonstrations, freedom of assembly, etc. It also includes the dismantling of all exceptional courts an...

Why Trump Should Cough Up the Dough "IndyWatch Feed"

I had a buddy in college who told me he was a very good chess player. I found this encouraging and invited him to play. He was a fairly decent player but he became outraged when I utilized the en passant move on him and insisted that I was attempting to cheat. In todays world, our argument would have been resolved in seconds by doing a google search on one of our phones, but back in the dark ages of the early 1990s, there was no simple way to resolve our dispute. So, instead, we raged at each other, both of us insisting with increasing castigation that we were right. At one point, he offered to give me a million dollars if it were true that a pawn can capture a pawn in a space it doesnt actually occupy.

A funny thing about the pre-internet days is that these kinds of disagreements could persist without being resolved. It bothered me that my friend thought I was either a cheat or an idiot, and also that he persisted in being so very wrong, but I was more interested in having a somewhat capable chess partner than in taking the time to go to the library or a book store to prove him wrong. I agreed to play him without the en passant rule. Yet, every time he took advantage of the fact that we werent using the rule, I couldnt help but complain anew, and wed argue and argue some more. We didnt resolve the issue until many years after college when I sent him a link and he accepted that hed been in error and apologized for questioning my integrity.

You know what I didnt do?

I didnt ask him for the million dollars hed promised me if he was wrong. I didnt ask because I knew an offer of a million dollar bet is not a real offer. If hed bet me twenty bucks, I would have told him I expected him to transfer that amount to my PayPal account or send me a personal check. He would have been honor-bound to give me my money.

So, how do we treat it when a president of the United States who professes to be a billionaire makes a bet and offers to pay a million dollars to charity if he is wrong?

In July, Donald Trump issued a challenge of sorts to Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts. At a MAGA rally in Montana, the president offered a hypothetical scenario where hed be running for reelection against Warren and facing her in a presidential debate. Here is what he said:

Republicans Flee In Terror From Their Positions And Records On Healthcare-- Too Late "IndyWatch Feed"

ObamaCare Repeal by Nancy Ohanian

Republican incumbents who have consistently voted to defund Medicare and Medicaid and cut back on Social Security have found those positions are unpopular. So they're lying about their votes and claiming they're the candidate who will protect, for example, preexisting conditions-- even though they voted to destroy the only bill that protected them without offering an alternative that would. As Paul Krugman mentioned last week Goodbye Political Spin, Hello Blatant Lies... "Black is white and up is down, and Republicans are defenders of Medicare... [R]right now the most intense, coordinated effort at deception involves health care-- an issue where Republicans are lying nonstop about both their own position and that of Democrats.
The true Republican position on health care has been clear and consistent for decades: The party hates, just hates, the idea of government action to make essential health care available to all citizens, regardless of income or medical history.

This hatred very much includes hatred of Medicare. Way back in 1961, Ronald Reagan warned that enacting Medicare would destroy American freedom. Maybe its just me, but I dont think that happened. Newt Gingrich shut down the government in an attempt to force Bill Clinton to slash Medicare funding. Paul Ryan proposed ending Medicare as we know it and replacing it with inadequate vouchers to be applied to the purchase of private insurance.

I havent experienced [discrimination] at all since Ive become a conservative, which is a transition that has been about a year and half in the making Ive been warmly embraced, he explained during the Dummycrats movie premiere in Washington DC.

I hear from Americans all over the country, they send me messages of support and encouragement and they tell me how much they love the Walk Away campaign that Im doing. I feel like Ive been very warmly embraced. Which has not been my experience dealing with the left since Ive had my conversion.

When asked how hes been received by his friends on the left, Straka noted, I dont think I have any leftist friends.

The Walk Away campaign will hopefully encourage all Americans to vote red on Nov 6., Straka said.

This is so important to vote even if you are someone who has just walked away, its okay if you are not a Republican, its okay if you dont know exactly where you fit right now but on Nov. 6 of this year you have to get out and vote and you have to vote red. You have to vote red, because a non-vote is a vote for a Democrat, and a vote for a Democrat right now is a vote for socialism, its a vote for communism, its a vote for censorship, its a vote for illegal immigrants over American citizens.

The Democrat Party wants you to believe that due to the color of your skin, due to your gender, due to your sexual orientation due to your educational background where ever you come fromthat you cannot succeed because the system is rigged against you, he argued. That the system is rigged to only favor men, white people, heterosexuals and that is not true it simply is not true.

Straka released a video that went viral on May 26  titled, Why I Left The Democratic Party, in which he details his transition from progressive to conservative. Over the last seven months, thousands of former progressives have joined the #WalkAway campaign, sharing their own stori...

HUGE: Supreme Court Will Hear Case to Decide if Far Left Tech Giants Can Censor Users "IndyWatch Feed"

For over a year The Gateway Pundit has spoken out about how the tech and social media giants are censoring and eliminating conservative publishers and conservative content.

***  In September The Gateway Pundit founder Jim Hoft testified to Congress on Facebook targeting of conservative publishers and content.

The Gateway Pundit has repeatedly reported on tech giant censorship of conservative content.

These powerful tech firms act as gatekeepers and prevent conservative content from being shared online.

In 2016 we were one of the few conservative sites that supported candidate Trump along with Breitbart, The Drudge Report, Infowars, Zero Hedge and Conservative Treehouse.  We are proud of our efforts to report the truth that led to Trumps historic win.

In 2017 Harvard and Columbia Journalism Review found that The Gateway Pundit was the 4th most influential conservative news source in the 2016 election.

Because of this we were targeted and have seen our numbers related to Facebook and Twitter decline dramatically.

In February Facebook launched another algorithm change to their platform. With the changes we saw our traffic dwindle even further.

The algorithmic change caused President Donald Trumps engagement on Facebook posts to plummet a whopping 45%.

Facebook is doing this to a number of top conservative sites.

A recent Pew Study found that 71% of Americans see how tech giants are censoring political content.

A Gateway Pundit June study of top conservative news outlets found that Facebook  eliminated 93% of traffic to top conservative websites.

Organizer of Migrant Caravan Detained After President Trump Threatens to Cut U.S. Aid to Honduras, Guatemala "IndyWatch Feed"

President Trump meant business when he issued a strong warning to Honduran President Hernandez Tuesday over the migrant caravan marching northbound to United States. 

So far, the Presidents warning seems to be working because the organizer of the caravan, Bartolo Fuentes was detained in Guatemala Tuesday.

Guatemalan police officers detained Bartolo Fuentes, a former Honduran lawmaker, from the middle of the large crowd that he and three other organizers had led from San Pedro Sula, Honduras, since Saturday, Reuters reported.

Fuentes is reportedly being deported back to Honduras according to the Honduran security minister.

The migrant caravan has splintered into smaller groups in order to be able to pass through Guatemala undetected, however; according to authorities some of the migrants turned around and headed back to Honduras.

Honduran migrants are still marching northbound, however; it is unclear how many people continue to trek to the U.S.

The Associate Press reported Wednesday that the Hondurans were spotted in Chiquimula, Guatemala marching through rain, determined to make it the Mexican border.

On Monday, the migrant caravan, dubbed March of the Migrant, DOUBLED IN SIZE as it crossed through the Guatemalan border on its way to Mexico where they will head northbound to the United States.

According to Reuters, up to 3,000 migrants crossed from the Honduras into Guatemala after a standoff with police in riot gear Monday.

President Trump didnt even wait until the caravan of Hondurans reached Mexico before issuing a very stern warning to the Honduran president on Tuesday threatening to cut U.S. aid immediately!

Sen. Ben Sasse Releases Book on Coming Together Includes Entire Chapter Trashing Hannity Sean Hannity Responds! "IndyWatch Feed"

Guest post by Joe Hoft

Nebraska Republican Senator and Never Trumper Ben Sasse just cant help himself.

He released a new book which is all about healing the country and bringing it back together.  Then he includes an entire chapter bashing conservative icon Sean Hannity.

Ben Sasse never liked President Trump and now we know he doesnt like Sean Hannity either.  The Republican Senator from Nebraska just released a book where he spent 20 pages criticizing conservative media pundit Sean Hannity.

Jack Posobiec on Twitter outed Sasse in a series of tweets. He first condemned Sasse for writing the anti-conservative book instead of doing his job working for the people of the United States:

Ben Sasseis a US Senator and he spends his time on our dime writing books about how much he doesnt like Hannity instead of doing his job

EXCLUSIVEDiamond and Silk: Dont #WalkAway, Run And Run Like Hell (VIDEO) "IndyWatch Feed"

After witnessing the Democrat Partys deception, corruption and greed in the movie Dummycrats, Americans are not going to #WalkAway from Democrats they are going to run and run like hell, the stars of the newly released movie Diamond and Silkp told The Gateway Pundit.

The Democrat party keeps walking around here, talking about resist, because they dont want America to exist as we know it, Diamond warned during the premier of Dummycrats in Washington D.C. at Trump International Hotel. I am not telling you to walk away, Im telling you to run and run like hell. If you dont want to see the trajectory of our country change so horribly that you dont know youre left from your right, baby, you need to vote right, vote red and vote Republican.

You are going to see people running away. You are going to see people switching their party, and pretty soon theres going to be one party called Make America Great Again.'

Vote right, so you wont get left, Silk added.

Dummycrats features top Democrats including Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Joe Biden, Rep. Maxine Waters and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi.

In the film, Diamond and Silk visit impoverished Democrat-run cities, like the California districts of Waters and Pelosi to expose the detrimental repercussions of progressive policies   heavy taxation, government dependence, illegal immigration and identity politics have had in their communities.

The sisters blast Waters for living in a mansion in an affluent neighborhood and refusing to live in her own poverty-stricken district.

They also talk to citizens to understand whether they like the policies of their elected officials.

Youve got to look at these politicians. They are going in poor coming out rich. They are working for their own greed, not the need of people unacceptable. Its time for everybody and I dont care what side of the aisle you are on, start paying attention to these politicians Diamond asserted. Often times, people just listen to soundb...

I saw this ad on network television last night. It was produced by Future45, a pro-GOP super PAC founded in 2015 and bankrolled by the likes of Paul Singer and Sheldon Adelson.

It's the Republicans' standard line of attack this year -- mob rule, socialism, Nancy Pelosi -- but pay attention to the last line of the ad:

The screaming. The violence. The smears and death threats. The far left moving to socialism. Undefended open borders. Immediate tax increases. One hundred percent government-run health care. The booming economy stopped. Nancy Pelosi back in power. Gridlock, and then impeachment.

Is that really what you want? Voting for any Democrat gets you all of that.
The last line is what Democrats and Democratic PACs never say, in campaign ads or in any other forum: Don't vote for any member of the other party.

It's easier for Republicans to say this because Fox News and talk radio proclaim 24 hours a day, in campaign years and off years, that all opponents of the GOP, from moderate Democrats to window-smashing anarchists, are part of one grotesque hydra-headed beast that wants to empty your bank account, burn down your neighborhood, and put MS-13 members under your bed. Republicans don't just nationalize every election -- they've nationalized every political conversation in America. As a result, every unpopular Democrat or left-leaning professor/entertainer/athlete/demonstrator is a millstone around every Democrat's neck.

By contrast, our side is often reluctant to say that every Republican member of Congress, even the ones with a reputation for moderation (deserved or undeserved), will still vote for the party leadership that does all the smashmouth partisan things voters hate, and that most of those allegedly moderate Republicans will vote in lockstep with the party on the majority of issues. Outside of deeply progressive media, our pols and PACs never simply say simply that the Republican Party is the problem. And we don't link right-wing extremism to the GOP -- Republicans now are pounding the message that Antifa equals the Democrats, even though Antifa despises both major parties, whereas Democrats aren't even running ads linking the pro-violence Gavin McInnes and his Proud Boys to the GOP, despite the fact that this unabashed advocate of violence was invited to deliver a talk at a R...


Where is Speaker Paul Ryan? With Mid-Terms in Three Weeks Hes Nowhere to be Found "IndyWatch Feed"

Guest post by Joe Hoft

Where the hell is Speaker Paul Ryan? It appears for the second major election in a row he is doing all he can to stop the Trump Train!

In 2016, during the Presidential campaign Speaker Ryan stated in a call with House Republicans that he would never support then Presidential candidate Trump, and he never has

During the Presidents first year in office, Ryan couldnt contain his disdain for the President. Every time he was with the President he had a horrible smirk on his face.

Ryan never realized how disgusting his actions and lack of support were to Republicans who admire President Trump for his courage and efforts to change America for the better after the eight destructive years of the Obama Administration. In spite of significant head winds from corrupt Democrats, the media and NeverTrumper Republicans, like Ryan himself, the President succeeded in accomplishing a significant portion of his agenda in his first year in office alone.

But in March 2018, Ryan provided the President a monstrous spending bill. The President signed it but reluctantly. Americans voted against massive spending from the Obama years by voting for Trump. In spite of President Trumps deficits being half that of Obamas, the spending bill was not popular and Ryan knew it. Ryan gave the Democrats all they wanted and yet didnt provide any money for President Trumps wall on the Southern border.

Rep. Lloyd Smucker Crusades Against the Federal Agency Investigating His Own Familys Drywall Business "IndyWatch Feed"

In practically all campaigns of every ideological stripe, politicians pledge to create jobs. Beyond the rhetoric, though, a deep divide is taking shape in Pennsylvanias 11th Congressional District one that pits two very different visions and track records on the type of workforce that will fuel Americas future against each other.

The incumbent in the Lancaster-area race, freshman Republican Rep. Lloyd Smucker, who amassed a fortune in the local construction industry, is facing a challenge from Democratic candidate Jess King. For her part, King was the executive director of a nonprofit that helped local entrepreneurs build sustainable business models with a focus on serving the broader community.

Both candidates have experience creating jobs, but they propose dueling frameworks for how the economy should maximize employment for Americans. Only one of the candidates, however, is accused of maximizing employment and profit at the expense of American workers safety.

In his first two years in Congress, Smucker has taken an approach that decidedly favors business owners, working to weaken Labor Department regulations and labor unions, as well as promoting an increased reliance on seasonal foreign workers in jobs such as construction. As it turns out, Smuckers legislative agenda reflects a business career centered on a similar approach, according to government records and lawsuits reviewed by The Intercept.

Over three decades, Rep. Lloyd Smuckers family drywall business has racked up penalties from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration for serious safety violations.

Over three decades, Smuckers family drywall business has racked up penalties from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration for serious safety violations, creating a work environment that one employee claimed led to an accident that gave him significant injuries.

In contrast, King has managed several nonprofits devoted to local job growth, helping entrepreneurs pitch investors, secure loans, and learn how to create businesses that serve broad goals in the community. Kings devotion to high-quality, high-paying jobs is apparent in her campaign. She is one of the only candidates in the country whose campaign staff is organized and represented by a labor union.

In their first debate last week, Smucker belittled Kings ideas for infrastructure spending, Medicare for All health care, and tuition-free public college. Its the private sector that creates jobs, not the government, said Smucker.

King argued, I have been an entrepreneur in nonprofits. [I] have started and...


Far Left Comedian George Lopez ATTACKS Trump Supporter at Hooters (VIDEO) "IndyWatch Feed"

More liberal violence
A video released on Sunday shows far left actor-comedian George Lopez attacking a Trump supporter outside a Hooters restaurant in New Mexico.

Lopez grabs the mans phone and then grabs the mans neck.

CBS Local reported:

A cellphone video has surfaced showing comedian George Lopez getting into an altercation at a New Mexico Hooters with a man reported to be a vocal supporter of Donald Trump.

According to CBS 4 in Texas, the 15-second video recorded Sunday was posted by gossip news site TMZ. It starts with a man looking into his phone, saying, Here comes my boy George as Lopez appears to walk out of the restaurant. Jorge Lopez! the man says before the comedian asks, Posting more bull****?

Lopez then grabs the mans phone as the alleged Trump fan says, Hes a badass! Look at him! He wants to fight me! Lopez says something unintelligible during the scuffle as he grabs the mans neck.

George wants to fight me! the man says as the video ends.

A person close to Lopez told the site the man had been taunting Lopez the entire night, making pro-Trump comments and screaming MAGA!

Democrats Outline Priorities When They Take Congress: Protect Illegals, Gun Control, Investigate Kavanaugh and Russia, Impeach Trump "IndyWatch Feed"

This sounds like a nightmare.
How can people support this crap?

Democrats announced they will fight to protect illegals, pass gun control, investigate Justice Kavanaugh and launch several Russia probes when they take Congress in November.

Democrats believe this is what America wants from their government.
Forget the Trump wall! Democrats will be protecting illegal aliens instead.
This is pure insanity!


The Washington Free Beacon reported:

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) said the Democrats would prioritize new gun control legislation and protecting illegal immigrants if they regain control of the House of Representatives after the midterms next month.

Democrats will look to pass a gun background check bill and protect Dreamers, undocumented immigrants brought to the United States as children, Pelosi told Politico. She also said the Democrats would try to pass campaign finance reform and lower drug prices.

Pelosi is actively campaigning and fundraising on behalf of Democratic congressional candidates. In the third quarter of 2018, she will report raising over $30 million for the partys candidates.

The house minority leader is also preparing to return to the role of speaker of the House, a position she held from 2007 to 2011. Although her bid to become speaker has faced resistance from some House Democrats clamoring for new leadership, Pelosi appears to have solidified the support of her caucus, Politico notes.

Rep. Adam Schiff (D., Calif.) has listed five investigations the Democrats would launch if they win the House, saying they will need to ruthlessly prioritize the most important matters first.

Schiff wants to investigate whether the Russians have financial leverage over President Donald Trump. In the House Judiciary Committee, Schiff said Democrats will look into abuse of the pardon power, attacks on the rule of...

A far-right government led by the authoritarian Congressman Jair Bolsanaro is highly likely to win the presidency in Brazil when the October 28 run-off is held. This week on Intercepted: Glenn Greenwald is host and he breaks down the rise of the most extreme right-wing candidate in the democratic world and explains why Brazils young and fragile democracy leaves it far more susceptible to a return of military rule than the older and more established democracies of Europe and North America. Glenn is joined by the vice presidential candidate on the Workers Party ticket running against Bolsonaro, Manuela dvila, for a wide-ranging interview about Bolsonaro, the campaign she and the Workers Party are running, and the severe dangers posed to Brazilian democracy. He asks dvila whether the democratic institutions in place will be enough to guard against a president who advocates returning to military dictatorship, and they discuss the neoliberal economic crisis that is likely to come. Journalist Sarah Aziza gives an in-depth analysis of the alleged brutal murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi that has rocked the journalistic world and started a debate over the U.S. relationship with Saudi Arabia. She breaks down the Saudi governments explanations of events in Khashoggis disappearance, and gives the context of other disappeared and jailed Saudi critics at the hands of the government before, and after, Mohammad bin Salman seized and consolidated power in the Kingdom.

Ele est por trs da maior operao antifraude das urnas. Mas frauda o prprio currculo. "IndyWatch Feed"

Foram dias de espera at que, na manh desta tera-feira, um homem de cabelos brancos e colete anunciasse, em tom robtico, no YouTube, o que eleitores de Jair Bolsonaro gostariam de ouvir: h grandes chances das urnas brasileiras terem sido fraudadas em 2018.

Figura carimbada nos eventos patrocinados pela direita, o protagonista do vdeo Hugo Csar Hoeschl, um ex-procurador da Fazenda Nacional que posa na internet de respeitado acadmico e de bastio da luta pela verdade. Seu discurso, repetido desde 2014 em palestras, que h exatos 73,14% de probabilidade das eleies de quatro anos atrs, vencida por Dilma contra Acio, terem sido manipuladas.

Sua mais recente empreitada foi provar que o mesmo ocorreria em 2018. No discurso, gravado pelo grupo Brasil Paralelo, uma espcie de Netflix de contedos conspiracionistas, Hoeschl afirma que, para comprovar a fraude das urnas eletrnicas, montou uma rede de computadores com alto poder de processamento nos EUA. Ningum sabe onde, nem mesmo se nos EUA de fato. Essas mquinas, diz, estariam configuradas para capturar, processar e analisar o banco de dados do TSE e mostrar o baixo ndice de confiabilidade das eleies. Hoje, com cinco dias de atraso e no mesmo cenrio escuro e com computadores ao fundo, ele anunciou o resultado: 77,68% de chances de fraude.

Seu mtodo, explicado genericamente por palestras de grupos de direita como o Conclave de So Paulo, baseado num conceito chamado Lei de Newcomb-Benford. Trata-se de uma constatao de que, em sries numricas geradas naturalmente, h sempre uma tendncia de o nmero 1 aparecer mais vezes (30,1% do total), seguido pelo nmero 2, depois pelo nmero 3 e por a vai. Por outro lado, nas sries numricas que sofressem fraude humana, teria muito mais nmeros altos, a exemplo de 7, 8 e 9.

O modelo criado pelo fsico Frank Benford (1883-1946) se provou eficaz para verificar alguns tipos de fraudes em relatrios contbeis e bancrios: muitos fraudadores, afinal, costumam usar nmeros 9 para no usar nmeros redondos e no causar suspeita preferem usar 9.999 em vez de 10.000 para burlar limites de transferncia, por exemplo. Quanto s eleies, porm, a ferramenta forense est longe de ser confivel. De uns anos para c, muitos tericos de universidades renomadas aplicaram a metodologia e no conseguiram provar a validade do recurso.

Um deles Michelle Brown, da Universidade de Georgetown, que, ao aplicar a ferramenta nos dados de votos de uma assembleia nos EUA,...


Midnight Meme Of The Day! "IndyWatch Feed"

by Noah

Well, isn't this special. During the Brett Kavanaugh hearings, it just wasn't enough for the Republican Party to message the country that sexual assault is no big deal and that Dr. Ford was lying and that Kavanaugh should be confirmed no matter what. No, soon the White House had their White Nationalist friends over at FOX "News" going the anti-Semitic route with idiotic claims that the whole Kavanaugh hearing uproar was part of a George Soros-funded plot. Once Herr Trump's minions went there, it was only one small side step, if that, to fliers and posters blaming "The Jews" for the whole damn thing; fliers complete with depictions of Senators Feinstein and Schumer, among others. Admit it, would it shock you if the flier was drawn up by some White House luminary such as Gen. Kelly or, perhaps an eager to please intern who knew how to get ahead in today's Republican Party?

Maybe this whole Nazi flier thing is something Nazi-saluting Laura Ingraham or Tucker Carlson devoted their artistic talents to and faxed over to the Oval Office. Who knows? Trump's "very fine people" at The Dailey Stormer proudly take credit for it but, really, isn't it only a matter of time before Carlson's Daily Caller officially merges with them? They might as well since Carlson has made his personal ideology so clear, even going so far as to broadcast the propaganda of his fellow white supremacists.

Midterm 2018 OHIO: Sherrod Brown vs. Jim Rennaci "IndyWatch Feed"

Should Ohio vote for a far Leftist for yet another term in the US Senate?

Trump won Ohio and there is only one statewide Democrat left in office.

Sen. Sherrod Brown has one of the most Far Left voting records in the entire US Senate. He should not go back to Washington.

He opposes Trump on EVERYTHING.

He vehemently voted against Judge Kavanaugh.

Sherrod Brown has been accused of alleged domestic abuse and yet neither his Democrat party nor the voters seem to take the charges seriously.

He is running against a conservative, solid Middle American congressman, Jim Rennaci.

Jim has a consistent record of supporting Trump and America First.

The polls have Brown slightly ahead.


He does not deserve another term and is not representing the hard working, pro-American people of the good state of Ohio.

He does not share their Midwestern values.

Brown actually started his political career as a Yalie in 1972 volunteering for George McGovern.

He is now a career politician.

He voted against the Defense of Marriage Act and proudly wears the badge of Progressive.

Closely aligned with socialist Bernie Sanders, Brown has received the most liberal member of Congress standing for years and years.

He opposed the 2017 Tax Bill, which gave Ohioans more jobs, more money in their pockets and a booming economy.

Brown must go.

Putting Republican Rennaci into the US Senate is the Ohio buckeye thing to do!

Make this viral in Ohio!

Should the Electoral College Be Abolished? "IndyWatch Feed"

Democratic socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, seeking to represent New Yorks 14th Congressional District, has called for the abolition of the Electoral College. Her argument came on the heels of the Senates confirming Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. She was lamenting the fact that Chief Justice John Roberts and Justice Samuel Alito, nominated by George W. Bush, and Justices Neil Gorsuch and Kavanaugh, nominated by Donald Trump, were court appointments made by presidents who lost the popular vote but won the Electoral College vote.

Hillary Clinton has long been a critic of the Electoral College. Just recently, she wrote in The Atlantic, You wont be surprised to hear that I passionately believe its time to abolish the Electoral College.

Subjecting presidential elections to the popular vote sounds eminently fair to Americans who have been miseducated by public schools and universities. Worse yet, the call to eliminate the Electoral College reflects an underlying contempt for our Constitution and its protections for personal liberty. Regarding miseducation, the founder of the Russian Communist Party, Vladimir Lenin, said, Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted. His immediate successor, Josef Stalin, added, Education is a weapon whose effect depends on who holds it in his hands and at whom it is aimed.

A large part of Americans miseducation is the often heard claim that we are a democracy. The word democracy appears nowhere in the two most fundamental documents of our nation the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution. In fact, our Constitution in Article 4, Section 4 guarantees to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government. The Founding Fathers had utter contempt for democracy. James Madison, in Federalist Paper No. 10, said that in a pure democracy, there is nothing to check the inducements to sacrifice the weaker party or an obnoxious individual. At the 1787 Constitutional Convention, Virginia Gov. Edmund Randolph said that in tracing these evils to their origin, every man had found it in the turbulence and follies of democracy. John Adams wrote: Remember Democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts and murders itself. There never was a Democracy Yet, that did not commit suicide. At the Constitutional Convention, Alexander Hamilton said: We are now forming a republican government. Real liberty is found not in the extremes of democracy but in moderate governments. If we incline too much to democracy, we shall soon shoot into a monarchy.

For those too dense to understand these arguments, ask yourselves: Does the Pledge of Allegiance say to the democracy for which it stands or to the republic for which it stands? Di...

Ecuador Restores Julian Assanges Internet "IndyWatch Feed"

Ecuador has partially restored Julian Assanges communications in their London Embassy after UN officials met with Ecuadors president, Lenin Moreno on Friday, reports the Belfast Telegraph.

Assange, who has lived in the embassy for over six years, had his phone and internet access taken away in March over political statements he made in violation of a written commitment made to the government at the end of 2017 not to issue messages that might interfere with other states. His visitor access was also limited to members of his legal team

Ecuador has told WikiLeaks publisher Julian Assange that it will remove the isolation regime imposed on him following meetings between two senior UN officials and Ecuadors President Lenin Moreno on Friday, WikiLeaks said in a statement. 

Kristinn Hrafnsson, WikiLeaks editor-in-chief, added: It is positive that through UN intervention Ecuador has partly ended the isolation of Mr Assange although it is of grave concern that his freedom to express his opinions is still limited.

The UN has already declared Mr Assange a victim of arbitrary detention. This unacceptable situation must end.

The UK government must abide by the UNs ruling and guarantee that he can leave the Ecuadorian embassy without the threat of extradition to the United States. Belfast Telegraph

Assange, having been granted political asylum by Ecuador, will not leave the embassy out of the belief that he will be arrested by UK authorities and extradited to the United States, where a Clinton-friendly DOJ awaits the arrival of the man Hillary once joked about murdering via drone strike.

Should US-Saudi Alliance Be Saved? "IndyWatch Feed"

Shop all books by Pat Buchanan

Over the weekend Donald Trump warned of severe punishment if an investigation concludes that a Saudi hit team murdered Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul.

Riyadh then counter-threatened, reminding us that, as the worlds largest oil exporter, Saudi Arabia plays an impactful and active role in the global economy.

Message: Sanction us, and we may just sanction you.

Some of us yet recall how President Nixons rescue of Israel in the 1973 Yom Kippur War triggered a Saudi oil embargo that led to months of long gas lines in the United States, and contributed to Nixons fall.

Yesterday, a week after Jared Kushner had been assured by his friend Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman that Khashoggi walked out of the consulate, Trump put through a call to King Salman himself.

According to a Trump tweet, the king denied any knowledge of whatever may have happened to our Saudi Arabian citizen.'

Trump said he was immediately sending Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to Riyadh to meet with the king on the crisis. The confrontation is escalating. Crown Prince Mohammed and King Salman have both now put their nations honor and credibility on the line.

Both are saying that what the Turks claim they can prove Khashoggi was tortured and murdered in the consulate, cut up, and his body parts flown to Saudi Arabia is a lie.

For Trump and the U.S., this appears a classic case of the claims of international morality clashing with the claims of national interest.

The archetype occurred in the mid-1870s when Ottoman Turks perpetrated a slaughter of Bulgarian Christians under their rule.

Former Prime Minister William Gladstone set Britain ablaze with a pamphlet titled, The Bulgarian Horrors and the Question of the East, calling for the expulsion of the Turks from Europe.

Prime Minister Benjamin Disraeli and Queen Victoria were apoplectic. For they were relying on the Turks to block the encroachment of Czarist Russia into the Eastern Balkans and down to the Turkish Straits.

Disraeli prevailed. The Brits put morality on the shelf.

For the U.S., morality and interests collided when FDR recognized the Bolshevik regime of Joseph Stalin in 1933, even as Stalins agents were s...

Western Civilization No Longer Exists "IndyWatch Feed"

The Cheney-Bush and Obama regimes destroyed due process, with the result that American citizens were detained in prison indefinitely without evidence and murdered without evidence or trial. In violation of US and international laws, the US government used torture to produce terrorists, who were not terrorists, in order to justify Washingtons wars, wars that have nothing whatsoever to do with fighting terrorism.

The Democratic Partys Identity Politics successful demonization of white heterosexual males has made American universities unsafe for white heterosexual males. Any woman can accuse them of rape, and despite the absence of any evidence, and even in the face of complete evidence to the contrary, the university, in total violation of all known rules of due process, can convict the accusedindeed, conviction on accusation alone is mandatory in American universitiesand destroy the reputation of the accused along with his ability to continue his education.

In the article below federal courts confronted with these mandatory university convictions of white males have overturned them, ruling against the universities violations of due process. The corrupt university administrations are serving Identity Politics, not justice.

Just imagine that if the Democrats, who in their glory represented the working class, were to achieve political power and appoint federal judges. No white heterosexual male would be safe. Under the Democrats Identity Politics, white heterosexual males are automatically guilty. Due process is not needed. By definition, white heterosexual males are racists, misogynists, and rapists. No evidence is needed.

I am waiting for the case when a white university female brings a rape case against a black university male. It will be interesting to see how the university chooses which side to take. In such a case we have two victims of white male supremacy. Which victim will prevail against the other victim. Will the university come down on the side of the protected black or on the side of the protected female? Or will the university decide that the rape was actually done by a white male pretending to be black.

This question illustrates the complete breakdown of American society. Most likely this deplorable situation is the case throughout the Western World. Society is so divided that there is no society there. And the idiot Russians want to join us!

To be truthful, there is nothing left of Western civilization, and the fault is not Ru...

New Government Report Shows US Weapons "IndyWatch Feed"

I have warned before that someone can hack into your car, take control, and actually assassinate you while making it look like an accident. Even Wired Magazine has come out warning about the flaws that allow your car to be hacked.  Michael Hastings was the journalist exposing the surveillance state. Hastings wrote about the investigation of reporters by the U.S. Department of Justice back in 2013. He said that the restrictions on the freedom of the press by the Obama administration were a war on journalism. He wrote his last story before he died in what may have been a cyber attack. Someone was able to control his car remotely and drove it into a tree at top speed. His last story was entitled: Why Democrats Love to Spy On Americans, published by BuzzFeed on June 7, 2013. Any journalist who goes for the truth about the Deep States seems to end up dead.

Hastings died in a fiery high-speed automobile crash on June 18, 2013, in Los Angeles. Today, cars connected with GPS can actually be hacked. It is possible to take control of your car, right down to the steering wheel, remotely. WIRED Magazine has proven this ability, which many others have confirmed. The likelihood that Hastings was killed remotely in an auto cyber attack is extremely high. He was on the Snowden affair and was the reason Snowden had to leave the country and turn everything over to the Guardian in London.

new government report now reveals that it took hackers just one hour to gain access to a high-tech weapon system. Hackers who can take control of your car, could also take control of jets and attack Washington itself. The Pentagons own report shows how unsophisticated they are. They never bothered to even change the default password on multiple defense systems. This report confirms that a cyber attack can be launched and the systems can be easily hacked using just basic tools that a teenager nerd would figure out in less than an hour.


The Electric Surtax "IndyWatch Feed"

Porsches have never been inexpensive but theyre about to become more so. You could call it the electric surtax  because thats what it amounts to.

And its probably going to be applied to us all, eventually.

Porsche corporate the company   just announced that it will expect all 190 of its U.S. stores to install high-voltage fast chargers at a cost of $300,000-$400,000 per store as part of the companys commitment to electrify half its product portfolio by 2025.

The problem which Porsche openly concedes is that while electric Porsches are fast, theyre slower than a 72 Pinto with a slipping transmission when it comes to recharging.

This is a problem with all electric cars, not just Porsches.

Its a much bigger problem, arguably, than battery range.

But it magnifies that problem.

Electric cars cant go as far as gas-engined cars, even very thirsty ones. A 911 Turbo averages about 20 MPG (19 city, 24 highway) but it can still go between 340 and 429 miles  (city/highway) on a full tank which is at least 100-150 miles farther than the longest-legged electric car currently on the market, a Tesla S.

And the range touted by Tesla and other EV advocates should always be taken with two big spoonfuls of salt because its much more variable than the range of a gas-engined car. For example, electric cars are more affected by heat and cold in part because power-using accessories such as AC and heat are powered by electricity and take a lot of electricity to power. Use these accessories and your range decreases.

Electric batteries also lose efficiency in extremely cold weather just like the 12V battery that starts a gas-engined car. But once a gas-engined car is running, cold weather doesnt affect its range even if the heat is used because the heat is created as a byproduct of the running engine.

But even if an electric cars range exactly matched its gas-engined equivalent, there is still the problem of recharging these things.

It is a time problem.

And fast chargers arent going to solve it because theyre not.

You Want To Make America Great Again? "IndyWatch Feed"

If the freedom of speech be taken away, then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter.George Washington

Living in a representative republic means that each person has the right to take a stand for what they think is right, whether that means marching outside the halls of government, wearing clothing with provocative statements, or simply holding up a sign.

Thats what the First Amendment is supposed to be about.

Yet through a series of carefully crafted legislative steps and politically expedient court rulings, government officials have managed to disembowel this fundamental freedom, rendering it with little more meaning than the right to file a lawsuit against government officials.

In the process, government officials have succeeded in insulating themselves from their constituents, making it increasingly difficult for average Americans to make themselves seen or heard by those who most need to hear what we the people have to say.

Indeed, President Trumpalways keen to exercise his free speech rights to sound off freely on any topic that strikes his fancyhas not been as eager to protect the First Amendment rights of his fellow citizens to speak freely, assemble, protest and petition ones government officials for a redress of grievances.

Not that long ago, in fact, Trump suggested that the act of protesting should be illegal.

The president has also suggested demonstrators should lose their jobs or be met with violence for speaking out.

Mind you, this is the man who took an oath of office to uphold and defend the Constitution.

Perhaps someone should have made sure Trump had actually read the Constitution first.

Most recently, the Trump Administration proposed rules that would crack down on protests in front of the White House and on the National Mall.

According to the Philadelphia Inquirer, The rules would restrict gatherings that now take place on a 25-foot-wide sidewalk in front of the White House to just a 5-foot sliver, severely limiting crowds...

We Now Know the Government-Funded Group "IndyWatch Feed"

On October 11, 2018, 58+ more pages were removed from Facebook causing yet another uproar in the war against independent media. My inbox flooded with messages as friends and other page admins began asking me when I thought we were going to be next.

The thought crossed my mind, the day could come, but for now, we will keep building our platform off Facebook, stay grounded in our thoughts and continue producing quality, neutral, conscious media and journalism. We feel Facebook will not have any REAL excuse to come after that, but we know they dont need an excuse per se.

After all, all of my friends pages were just deleted because Facebook felt they were tied to some sort of Russian/US election meddling. Its interesting when you consider the only people meddling in the election is Facebook. Why else would they delete numerous Facebook pages which often oppose the state-controlled mainstream media?

Beyond the political pressure Facebook seems to be receiving, what actually goes on during this all our targeted censorship? We may never know exactly, but signs point to a specific group that appears to be heavily involved in the process.

The Group That Guides Facebook Censorship

Enter The Atlantic Council (TAC).

According to a Google Search,

TAC is an American think tank in the field of international affairs. Founded in 1961, it provides a forum for international political, business, and intellectual leaders. It manages ten regional centers and functional programs related to international security and global economic prosperity.

Sounds nice, but then again so do many things that have profit and control driven intentions. Take Monsanto for example, here is an explanation of what they do according to a Monsanto rep.

Monsanto is a global modern agriculture company. We develop products and tools to help farmers around the world grow crops while using energy, water, and land more efficiently. We believe innovation has the potential to bring humanitys needs in balance with the resources of our planet.

A look into what Monsanto really does might reveal such things as...

Counter-Terrorism According to Trump "IndyWatch Feed"

While the new US anti-terrorist strategy doesnt change much in terms of the fight itself, it operates a profound modification of the working rules of the Pentagon and the Secretariat of Homeland Security. It is not so much a rationalisation of what has been developed since 2001, but more a redefinition of the missions of the federal State.

On 4 October 2018, the White House published the new  National Strategy for Counterterrorism  [1]. This document is presented as a split from what has been achieved so far in the matter the last text, dating from the Obama administration, was published in 2011. In reality, this is a compromise between President Trump and the Pentagon.


Terrorism is a method of combat to which all armies reserve the right. The five permanent powers of the UN Security Council made a targeted use of terrorism during the Cold War.

At that time, terrorist acts were either messages sent by one state to another, or secret operations aimed at inhibiting a protagonist. Today, they have become generalised. They no longer have a place in the secret dialogues between states, but are intended to weaken them.

As an example for our French readers, lets remember that during the civil war in Lebanon, President Franois Mitterrand ordered the attack against the Office of Military Conscription in Damascus, causing 175 deaths, in response to the assassination of Frances ambassador in Beirut, Louis Delamarre. Or again, in 1985, President Mitterrand ordered the destruction of the Rainbow Warrior, a ship belonging to the Greenpeace organisation, because its presence prevented the continuation of nuclear testing in the Pacific. The attack caused one death.


Three ambiguities have persisted in US rhetoric since 2001 :

- The notion of a Global War on Terror (GWOT), formulated by George Bush Jr., never made any sense at all. The word terrorism does not define enemies, but a method of combat. The war on terrorism makes no more sense than a war against war . It was a way of announcing what Donald Rumsfeld called the endless war in other words the strategy by Admiral Arthur Cebrowski for the destruction of the state structures of countries which are not connected to the global economy.


Eyesores Galore "IndyWatch Feed"

Nearly three quarters of a century after his death, Hitlers shadow continues to fall across Europe. Any dissent from any modern orthodoxy, no matter how silly, soon meets with the argumentum ad Hitlerum, to the effect that something or other is the beginning of the slippery slope to Auschwitz. Guilt by association is now the highest form of refutationother than outright abuse, of course.

There was a good example of this in the Observer newspaper last Sunday. An article titled A dubious history in the remaking? recounted, among other things, the reconstruction of part of Frankfurt am Main exactly as it was before its destruction in the war.

Frankfurt was beautiful before its destruction, as were many German cities. Germany, in fact, had one of the greatest urban heritages in the world, whose destruction no civilized person can fail to lament. The attempt to recapture some small part of it is therefore to be welcomed, albeit that however accurately the destroyed original is copied, only the passage of time will lend to the replica the charm of immemorial usage. The fact is, however, that no period of time will ever be sufficient to lend charm to what the locals call Mainhattan, the tower blocks of modern Frankfurt, which might as well be in Bangkok, Dubai, or Omaha, Nebraska, as in Germany.

The article managed to smear the attempt at restoration by making it sound almost like a neo-Nazi project. The underlying argument, by implication, was as follows: Hitler and Nazism being the teleological end of German history, the crescendo to which all previous German history was inevitably leading, any fondness for anything German pre-1945 is at least a subliminal expression of Nazi sympathies. Much better, then, to stick with Mainhattan, which is beyond all political suspicion. If a German city has nothing whatever German about it, who can suspect it of bad politics?

An added attraction of many reconstruction projects [in Germany], says the author of the article, quoting a German professor, is that the damage being repaired was inflicted by Allied bombing, which reinforces the far-right narrative that Nazi Germany was as much a victim as a perpetrator of war crimes. I have no special insight into the mentality of the German far-right, but surely the main impulse behind the reconstruction is an understanding of the beauty of what has been lost and the ugliness of what has been gained. My mother was a refugee from Nazi Germany, but I am all for the restoration of whatever can be salvaged in Germany because I prefer beauty to ugliness wherever it might be.

How To Maneuver a Vehicle and Drive "IndyWatch Feed"

Whiteout conditions can be dangerous if not deadly. With cold weather around the corner, were going to cover some basic information on what you need to do when driving in these winter conditions.

For those of you who are unaware of what it is like driving in whiteout conditions, this is a good video that demonstrates just how dangerous it can be.

These techniques mentioned here should be practiced before you employ them for real.  How do you practice? Find a road that does not have a lot of traffic that is close to your home and take one or two people with you. Take flashlights and attachments that make the flashlight a colored cone, preferably red as it stands out in the falling snow the best. Now practice the techniques that we will outline, with one person in the vehicle, and another one as a control person to help ensure success by guiding the vehicle from the outside.

Now, lets begin. This technique can be very dangerous if you do not employ it correctly. For naysayers and law-and-order worshippers, keep in mind: there are such things as mitigating circumstances. If youre suffering from some kind of injury with no telephone and its a life-or-death situation, forget about Officer (Un)Friendly and go for the win. succeed in your travel.

One of the problems with Whiteouts is with the headlights themselves. The lights reflect off the snowflakes and blind the driver. High-beams are out. Low-beams can also be out, and now for the punch line: You can drive through a Whiteout in a controlled manner better without the headlights than with them.

Artificial Sweeteners Are Toxic "IndyWatch Feed"

Recent research into the health effects of artificial sweeteners deliver yet another blow to safety claims. The animal study,1,2,3,4,5 published in the journal Molecules, found all artificial sweeteners currently approved and deemed safe by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration cause DNA damage in, and interfere with the normal and healthy activity of, gut bacteria.

The artificial sweeteners included in this study included:

All Artificial Sweeteners Are Toxic to Gut Bacteria

As reported by Business Insider,6 the research team concluded that all of these sweeteners had a toxic, stressing effect, making it difficult for gut microbes to grow and reproduce. While the authors do not directly refer to them as having antibiotic effects, when something is killing bacteria, thats essentially whats happening.

According to the researchers, the effects on your gut health may in turn affect your bodys ability to process regular sugar and other carbohydrates. According to this study, the toxic limit for these artificial sweeteners appears to be around 1 milligram per milliliter (mg/mL).

GOP Triage-- Blame Game, Name Game "IndyWatch Feed"

This time it's the Republicans' turn to play the blame game-- Shirley Ellis' 1964 "Name Game" version, not the one Trumpist asshole Kanye stole from Apex Twin. Steve Peoples covered it for the AP. "Republicans," he wrote, "have begun to concede defeat in the evolving fight to preserve the House majority. The partys candidates may not go quietly, but from the Arizona mountains to suburban Denver to the cornfields of Iowa, the GOPs most powerful players this midterm season are actively shifting resources away from vulnerable Republican House candidates deemed too far gone and toward those thought to have a better chance of political survival. And as they initiate a painful and strategic triage, the early Republican-on-Republican blame game has begun as well."

It would be tragic if some loathsome House Republican-- say Iowa lunatic Rod Blum, for example-- sneaks a 3-D printed gun into the Capitol and shoots Paul Ryan between the eyes, wouldn't it? My thoughts and prayers are already welling up inside me.
GOP operatives connected to several vulnerable candidates complain that the committee responsible for electing House Republicans has failed to deliver on its promise to invest $62 million in political advertising across 11 states this fall, a promise detailed in a September memo that declared, The cavalry is coming.

The operatives spoke on the condition of anonymity to avoid retribution; vulnerable Republican candidates still hope to receive additional financial support over the three weeks before Election Day.

But if the cavalry is coming, its not coming for everyone.

New Jersey is the bluest of states.

A Democrat incumbent running for reelection to the US Senate should win hands down.

Unless you are Robert Menendez.

The hyper liberal, crooked Senator is suffering from voter turnoff.

Even his Democrat allies loathe him.

His campaign is now weakened with lack of funds and is considered shaky.


It is because Menendez is a sleaze.

He is saddled with very negative ratings all caused by his character.

His ethics troubles are legion and the legal case against him is extensive. Look at his recent trial!

He smells to high heaven.

In any other state they would vote the BUM out.

Will NJ act?

This race is now a statistical dead heat.

The Republican challenger Bob Hugin is a political newcomer and former biopharma executive.

He represents an American success story.

From humble beginnings, Hugin has gone on to live the American Dream.

The native of New Jersey was a marine. He served his country. He is a fighter for health care and for community.

He is independent but pro-business. He likes the Trump economy.

Topple Menendez.

In fact, despite a massive marketing push, The Conners wasnt even the highest rated show of Tuesday night. Though The Conners was ahead of This Is Us by 22% in the early numbers, it was the fourth episode of the 16th season of CBS NCIS that topped the night with a 8.1/13 in metered market results.

Uber Driver Kidnaps, Gropes Female Passenger Then Charges Her $1,000 After Dumping Her on Side of Road "IndyWatch Feed"

Harbir Parmar

Police arrested Uber driver Harbir Parmar, 24, of Queens, New York after he allegedly kidnapped a female passenger and groped her breasts.

According to the female victim, Harbir Parmar groped her breasts after she fell asleep in the back of the car. The victim was then dumped on the side of the road and charged $1,067 for a ride to Boston she never took.

Uber says the victim has been refunded all of the money she was charged.

Fox News reported:

An Uber driver who allegedly kidnapped a passenger and assaulted her before dumping her on the side of a road in New York has been charged.

Harbir Parmar, 24, of Queens, was charged with kidnapping and wire fraud in U.S. District Court, the Justice Department announced in a criminal complained unsealed Tuesday.

The woman reportedly got in Parmars vehicle and fell asleep. During this time, Parmar allegedly changed the womans destination to Boston, Massachusetts and drove in that direction before pulling over on the side of the road, prosecutors said.

When the woman woke up, Parmar was allegedly in the back seat with her, with his hand underneath her shirt and on top of her breast. The woman told investigators she asked to be driven to White Plains or a police station, but Parmar refused, and instead dropped her off on the side of Interstate 95 in Branford, Connecticut  a town more than 80 miles from Manhattan.

Parmar was charged with kidnapping for the alleged incident.

Prosecutors also charged Harbir Parmar with wire fraud and the FBI encouraged other women who may have had similar experiences with Harbir Parmar to contact authorities.

Uber told Fox News they immediately revoked Harbir Parmars access to the app following the kidnapping and groping incident.

Harbir Parmar faces up to life in prison for kidnapping and overcharging customers for false destinations nearly a dozen times.

Huffington Post reported:

The Senate Democrats leading super PAC is set to spend $3 million in bright blue New Jersey in an effort to save Sen. Bob Menendez, who has struggled to put away a Republican challenger after facing a corruption trial last year.

Senate Majority PAC, which is controlled by allies of Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), will use the cash to air a statewide ad attacking Menendezs opponent, former pharmaceutical executive Bob Hugin, as an ally of President Donald Trump in a state where the president is deeply unpopular

Menendez, who is running for his third term in the Senate and is the top Democrat on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, leads in most recent public polling of the contest. But Democrats fear his lead isnt big enough i...

DWT California Voter Guide "IndyWatch Feed"

I should have gotten this out earlier. Apologies to anyone who already voted. First and foremost on our list is the U.S. Senate race, in which we strongly back Kevin de Len against fossilized conservative incumbent Dianne Feinstein.

Goal ThermometerWe don't usually back better of two evil candidates-- which is what the Democratic Party usually encourages, particularly on the federal level. But, this year, because of the existential threat from Trump, we are doing just that. Vote for every Democrat and against every Republican. Period. That said, we are genuinely excited about some Democrats, especially Katie Porter, the progressive running in Orange County (CA-45), Ammar Campa-Najjar, the progressive running for Congress in San Diego County (CA-50) and Jovanka Beckles, the progressive running for state Assembly in the East Bay. All of our California faves are on the Blue America thermometer on the right. OK, that's the easy stuff. Now the statewide propositions:
Prop 1- YES-- authorizes $4 billion in bonds to fund affordable housing for low-income families, seniors, people with disabilities, farmworkers and veterans.
Prop 2- YES-- authorizes $2 billion in bonds to provide supportive housing (i.e. ,mental health and drug rehab) for homeless Californians with mental illness.
Prop 3- NO-- an $8 billion boondoggle for Big Agriculture, while causing environmental problems.
Prop 4- YES-- authorize......


EXCLUSIVE Terrence Williams Blasts Democrats: I Come From the Ghetto, I Dont Play A Victim, This is America We Have Opportunities (VIDEO) "IndyWatch Feed"

Democrats are intent on keeping people victims and manipulating Americans to stay at the bottom, but the reality is we can all achieve the American dream, argues comedian and political commentator Terrence Williams.

Speaking to the Gateway Pundit at Diamond and Silks movie premier Dummycrats,  Williams argued the black community and minorities have overwhelmingly voted Democratic for decades because the manipulative party preys on the poor.

The Democrats are master manipulators. They know what they are doing when it comes to manipulating people and lying to people. The Democrats are smart. Im not saying that they are smart in a good way, but they are smart because you have to be smart in order to manipulate people. You have got to be smart to have people believing in lies, he said. What they do is they prey on poor people and they offer them free stuff it cost taxpayers a whole lot of money in order for these people to get free stuff but thats how the Democrats get people. They prey on the poor. A lot of people that support them, a lot of them are poor people.

Despite growing up in foster care, Williams, the rising social media star and frequent Fox News guest, said he refuses to succumb to the Democrats propaganda of victimization.

I come from the ghetto. My mother had nine kids six different fathers and she was on crack cocaine. I grew up with a mother that was on drugs, with nine kids a single mother with nine kids, on drugs, and she got her rights taken away because of her drug addiction. If you want to talk about the ghetto, if you want to talk about the black community, then you need to talk to me because I was in it, I know about the ghetto. I come from that, he explained. I can say, Ive been in foster care, I dont have a mommy or daddy, I can play that game. But I dont play a victim because this is America and we have opportunities. We can overcome things.

Heidi Heitkamp is a first term Democrat Senator running for re-election.

She should lose.

North Dakota is a conservative Midwestern state.

It backed Trump and continues to do so.

Heitkamp is out of step with the people and values of her state. She votes with Chuck Schumer the majority of the time, even if she tries to back foot it.

She voted AGAINST Judge Kavanaugh.

Her opponent is conservative Republican US Representative, Kevin Cramer.

He votes with Trump all the time and supports America First.

Heitkamp has been called the MOST VUNERABLE Democrat in the whole US Senate.

She should be!

Again, Trump won North Dakota by 36 points!

Cramers the better champion for the states fossil fuel industries.

He has solid conservative bona fides.

Cramer cares about cutting taxes, defending the Constitution, and he seeks to repeal the estate tax, so important to family farmers.

He opposes abortion and Planned Parenthood.

He should be the next Senator for North Dakotans.

The state will prosper. American will prosper.

Fusion GPS Co-Founder Glenn Simpson Pleads the 5th on Capitol Hill GOP Lawmakers May Hold Him in Contempt "IndyWatch Feed"

Glenn Simpson

On Tuesday, Fusion GPS co-founder Glenn Simpson pleaded the 5th Amendment on Capitol Hill in order to avoid answering Congressional questions about his meetings with twice-demoted DOJ official Bruce Ohr and the Russia dossier.

Glenn Simpson may be held in contempt for refusing to testify.

According to a reporter for The Hill, Olivia Beavers, Rep. Mark Meadows said the panel will be having discussions in the coming days on whether they will move to hold Simpson in contempt for refusing to testify.

You cannot just invoke the Fifth to avoid answering congressional questions, Congressman Mark Meadows told reporters.

FOX News Catherine Herridge confronted Glenn Simpson as he walked into his interview with lawmakers.

Simpson ignored Catherine Herridges questions.


GOP lawmakers were seeking more testimony from Glenn Simpson to iron things out after Bruce Ohr gave a conflicted testimony to Congress in August.

Attorneys for Glenn Simpson told House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte last Thursday that their client will invoke his constitutional rights not to testify, defying a subpoena seeking to compel him to give a closed-door testimony.

Simpsons lawyers argued the House Oversight and House Judiciary Committees are not seeking the truth, rather they are trying to discredit and otherwise damage witnesses to Russias interference in the 2016 election.

On Tuesday, Congressman Jim Jordan (R-OH) slammed Glenn Simpson for taking the 5th.




Tweets from a voting rights advocate:

And then there's this news:
FULTON COUNTY, Ga. - Some voters in Fulton County who hoped to cast their ballots on the first day of early voting Monday left disappointed.

Jerry Hudspeth and his wife went to vote at the Robert E. Fulton Regional Library in Johns Creek. The couple said they stood in line for about 20 minutes with dozens of other voters and noticed the line wasnt moving. An elections worker then came out to tell voters their computers were down, and they didnt know when they would be back up. The couple decided to come back to vote another time.

"The frustrating part is we've had months to get the system right and we just don't understand why you can't make it work," said Hudspeth.

AG Sessions Acknowledges Trumps Fury Over His Recusal Dodges Question About Resignation (VIDEO) "IndyWatch Feed"

On Tuesday, Attorney General Jeff Sessions acknowledged President Trumps frustrations and fury over his recusal.

Jeff Sessions went AWOL day one on the jobeven worse, he cited the wrong law when he recused himself.

President Trump has been hammering Jeff Sessions lately, and understandably so.

Most recently, in a 60 Minutes interview which aired Sunday evening, the President said hes very disappointed in Jeff Sessions.

Reporters pressed Jeff Sessions on Tuesday over his strained relationship with President Trump during a Justice Department news conference.

Do you believe the President is pressuring you to resign? Or has he ever said anything to you privately to pressure you or encourage you to resign? a reporter asked Sessions.

AG Sessions dodged the reporters question by responding, The president speaks his mind. He says whats on his mind at the time and hes been frustrated about my recusal and other matters, but we have been so pleased and honored to be given the responsibility to execute his agenda at the Department of Justice. Part of that is just this kind of case and so I am pleased and honored to have that responsibility and will do so as long as its appropriate to do so.

When a reporter pressed Sessions again if the President has pressured him in private to resign, Sessions awkwardly answered, Um, I think so

Jeff Sessions rarely publicly addresses his strained relationship with the President; he usually remains silent after Trump batters him in tweetstorms or interviews.


There is no justice in the Justice Department under Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

Woody Kaine was charged in May 2017 for disrupting a Trump rally in Minnesota.

Linwood Woody Kaine, of Minneapolis, was charged with one gross misdemeanor count of obstructing the legal process and misdemeanor counts of fleeing on foot and concealing his identity in public.

On Tuesday Tim Kaine, father of Woody, called on his fellow Democrats to fight in the streets.

CNS News reported:

Commenting on how Democrats can strengthen their party by effectively targeting Trump administration policies they oppose, Senator Tim Kaine (D-Va.) said liberals must fight in the courts, fight in the streets and fight at the ballot box.

What weve got to do is fight in Congress, fight in the courts, fight in the streets, fight online, fight at the ballot box, and now theres the momentum to be able to do this, he said in the 2017 interview. And were not afraid of the popular outcry, were energized by it and thats going to help us do our job and do it better.

Os ricos, os pobres e os precariados: os 3 tipos de eleitores de Bolsonaro "IndyWatch Feed"

Uma possibilidade de lidar com o atual cenrio poltico partir do princpio de que metade da populao composta por fascistas, ignorantes ou ambos. Sendo assim, podemos jogar a toalha e repetir que cada povo tem o governante que merece. Outra possibilidade, que me parece mais interessante, diferenciar esse espectro de eleitores, tentando entender como e por que diferentes perfis so capturados por essa pulso autoritria de Jair Bolsonaro.

Tenho diferenciado trs perfis de eleitores, que operam como tipos ideais que ajudam a refletir e a agir. O primeiro so os ricos, que tiveram capital educacional para saber o que est em jogo e conscientemente optam pelo projeto autoritrio contra a corrupo, mas na verdade veem em Bolsonaro e no antipetismo uma oportunidade para legitimar antigos preconceitos contra a gentalha.

Na outra ponta, h os pobres, com baixssimo capital educacional e que possuem um antipetismo brando. Votam em Bolsonaro por adeso por causa da igreja, por influncia familiar, desespero ou esperana, mas salientam que o Lula roubava, mas dava o que era nosso, roubava, mas nossa vida era melhor.

Na base da pirmide, ao contrrio dos ricos, h desiluso e desinteresse generalizado, mas tambm h flexibilidade para falar de diferentes candidatos. So sujeitos que no projetam a raiva ou jogam a culpa por sua vida deteriorada nos imediatamente abaixo por que no h ningum abaixo. Por causa do clientelismo, esses eleitores tendem a desacreditar na poltica como um todo. O grande desafio, para esse segmento, portanto, no a mudana de candidato, mas convenc-los a ir votar no dia da eleio.

Entre os ricos e os pobres, est todo o restante da populao brasileira, os precariados. a exatamente que reside o grande imbrglio do eleitor bolsonarista que engloba desde (A) o simptico motorista de Uber, a vendedora delicada, o porteiro prestativo, o microempresrio trabalhador e a manicure festeira todos indignados com o sistema poltico frouxo ou com a moral tradicional abalada e tambm frustrados com a prpria situao at o (B) o fantico, o agressor tomado pela fria prestes a se vingar e a matar um esquerdista, uma pessoa negra, LGBT, uma feminista os culpados pela deteriorao do mundo.

A diferena entre A e B existe. Mas a tendncia que ela diminua conforme o cenrio se radicaliza. A frustrao contra tudo que est a, contra essa pouca vergonha (sic) que contamina a poltica os valores morais, tende a mesclar ambos os perfis em um universo cada vez mais homogneo. Num piscar de olhos, o grupo A,  que interioriza valores das elites abastadas e culpa a gentalha por suas frustraes, transforma-se em B.

assim que a razo autoritria cresce, uma vez que no existe o fascista a priori...

Trumpanzee To Leslie Stahl: "I'm President And You're Not" "IndyWatch Feed"

During his dismal 60 Minutes interview, Seor Trumpanzee hinted strongly that he's going to get rid of "Mad Dog" Mattis after the midterms. Why after? Well, it's not likely to be a popular move and it will remind voters that Trump's dysfunctional regime is as chaotic as it is corrupt. McConnell and Ryan begged him to pretend things are stable until after the election-- for all their sakes. Mike Allen reported for Axios that "if Mattis departs on anything other than the most cordial terms, confirming a successor will be fraught and that Mattis could quit abruptly if Trump starts playing games in public, abusing and humiliating him the way he does with Sessions. (Trump kind of went there with Leslie Stahl, calling him "a Democrat."
Stahl: "Is it true General Mattis said to you, 'The reason for NATO and the reason for all these alliances is to prevent World War III?'"
Trump: "No, it's not true. ... Frankly, I like General Mattis. I think I know more about it than he does. And I know more about it from the standpoint of fairness, that I can tell you."
Stahl: "I'm gonna try one more time."
Trump: "Lesley, you don't have to try again. I know exactly what you're saying. ... I will always be there with NATO, but they have to pay their way. I'm fully in favor of NATO, but I don't wanna be taken advantage of." Mattis is a linchpin of what we call the Committee to Save America-- an unofficial alliance of officials who see it as their patriotic duty to protect Trump and the nation from disaster.

When I asked a well-wired Democrat how worrisome Mattis' departure would be, he replied: "Number one by far. Super scary."

Trump Warns Honduran President Threatens to Immediately Cut U.S. Aid to Honduras Over Migrant Caravan "IndyWatch Feed"

Over the weekend, approximately 1,300 Hondurans were marching to Guatemala en route to Mexico so they could make their way up to the US border right in time for the November election.

On Monday, the migrant caravan, dubbed March of the Migrant, DOUBLED IN SIZE as it crossed through the Guatemalan border on its way to Mexico where they will head northbound to the United States.

According to Reuters, up to 3,000 migrants crossed from the Honduras into Guatemala after a standoff with police in riot gear Monday.

President Trump is not messing aroundhe didnt even wait until the caravan of Hondurans reached Mexico before issuing a very stern warning to the Honduran president on Tuesday threatening to cut U.S. aid immediately!

With the president refusing to take a strong stance against the Saudi governments alleged murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, I ask: Does Saudi Arabia own Donald Trump?

Nothing at all shocking about this, really:

Liberal Shock: Ralph Nader Touts Mike Bloomberg 2020

Political activist and Green Party presidential candidate, Ralph Nader, who is known for being tough on Democrats tells Ari Melber it would be good for Mike Bloomberg to run against Trump as a Democrat in 2020, saying Wall Street is his weakness but that he could shake up the Democratic Party.

Actually Nader doesn't say Bloomberg "could shake up the Democratic Party -- he says the former mayor "could shake up the Democrat Party. That comes at the end of the clip above, and I'd be uncertain that I heard it right, but Nader also says "Democrat Party" at 2:14 of the clip. (He slips and says "Democratic Party" earlier, at 1:52.)

Here's what Nader says about Bloomberg (at 4:28):
ARI MELBER: When you look -- you're looking at the next election. Then you see Mike Bloomberg now re-registering as a Democrat. I imagine you view him as a classic corporate politician. He's moving parties based on where he may have a political opportunity. Do you think it would be bad for the Democrats that Mike Bloomberg run or become the nominee?


MELBER: What about Wall Street?

NADER: Wall Street is his weakness. He's for corporate welfare. On the other hand, he's not your routine Wall Street guy. He's an entrepreneur and he thinks for himself. I think he could shake up the Democrat Party. And I think -- 'cause I've known him and talked with him -- I think he rues the day that he didn't run four years ago.
A reminder: Bloomberg's plan that year was to run as an independent. Because he's pro-gun, anti-coal, and fairly socially progressive, he would have taken exactly zero votes from the Republicans, while taking enough votes from Democrats to put New York State (and possibly Connecticut and New Jersey, as well as his birth state, Massachusetts) in play. I guess Ralph Nader thinks that would have been just fine.

Nader says in the clip that the current GOP is "the worst Republican Party in history" (true) and thus easily beatable by a competent opposition (which does not inevitably follow from the first proposition). He doesn't like Trump now. Let's see what he was saying in 2016:
Ralph Nader, the former Green Party presidential candidate and lifelong consumer activist, says...

A Super PAC Is Spending Millions Attacking Democrats Who Cant Lose. Whats Going On? "IndyWatch Feed"

For the first time since he was elected statewide in Delaware in 1976, Sen. Tom Carper faced a political scare this summer, when an insurgent challenger picked up late momentum by highlighting Carpers fealty to corporate interests over the people of the state.

The insurgent, Kerri Harris, ended up with 35 percent of the vote in the September primary, ultimately swamped by record-setting turnout that included hordes of Democrats who hadnt heard of the Air Force veteran, community organizer, and electoral novice.

That was largely a function of money or rather, Harriss lack thereof  stacked up against Carpers decades of public service in the state. She waged a robust grassroots campaign with the backing of Justice Democrats, the group that helped Alexandria Ocasio-Cortezs campaign eclipse that of New York Rep. Joe Crowley. Still, Carper massively outspent Harris, $2,431,733 to $120,540.

It turns out that there was an eccentric Super PAC waiting just over the hills that could have stormed in and changed the tide in Harriss favor.

That calvary that never rode goes by the name of Patients for Affordable Drugs, or P4AD, and it elected to hold its fire against Carper until after he had eased through the primary. Now, as he faces a negligible challenge in the general election, the Super PAC has unloaded, releasing attack ads against the incumbent. The same group is also spending money against Rep. Anna Eshoo, a California Democrat who is running effectively unopposed. Meanwhile, the group is also backing Democrats in other races who have decent chances at victory.



Chicago Finally Releases Video of Police Officer Shooting Unarmed and Disabled Ricky Hayes "IndyWatch Feed"

Chicagos Civilian Office of Police Accountability, or COPA, today released video footage of the August 13, 2017 shooting of an African-American teenager named Ricardo Hayes by police officer Khalil Muhammad.

Viewed against the backdrop of the recently concluded trial of officer Jason Van Dyke for the murder of 17-year-old Laquan McDonald, the release of the Hayes video is an occasion to ask what has and has not changed since the release of the McDonald video in the fall of 2015 precipitated a political upheaval and demands for reform.

At the time of the incident, Ricky Hayes was 19 years old, but apart from his height, everything about him was childlike. He is developmentally and intellectually disabled. He looks like a child and has the mind of a child. A ward of the state, he lives with a caretaker in a neighborhood on the far south side of the city.

According to his lawyer Gabriel Hardy, Hayes frequently sneaks out of the house and has a history of getting lost out in the city. At roughly 1:25 a.m. on August 13, 2017, his caretaker checked his room and found that he wasnt there. She immediately called the police to report him missing. About half an hour later, police officers arrived. The caretaker filled out a missing person report and told the officers about Hayess disabilities.

In a civil suit against Muhammad and the city of Chicago, Hardy alleges that multiple surveillance cameras recorded Hayes as he wandered his neighborhood. Dressed in shorts, a short sleeve shirt, and sneakers, he can be seen skipping and singing to himself.

At about 5:00 a.m. Muhammad, who was off-duty and was driving his own pick-up truck, saw Hayes and began chasing him. At one point, he drove his truck up on the sidewalk within a few feet of Hayes. Frightened, the boy ran away. The officer continued the pursuit.

Eventually, Hayes stopped running and stood motionless with his hands at his sides on the front lawn of a house. What happened next was captured by a surveillance camera mounted on that house.

Muhammad pulled up and stopped roughly 20 feet from Hayes. Sitting in the cab of his truck, he opened fire with his service weapon, striking Hayes in his chest and arm. Wounded, Hayes again ran away. Muhammad pursued him in his truck, caught up with him, and ordered him to lie face down on the ground.

Muhammad then called 911 and requested an ambulance. I obtained an audio recording of the call through a Freedom of Information Act request. When the dispatcher asks what happened, Muhammad replies, The guy pulled like he was about to pull a gun on me, walked up to the car, and I had to shoot.



Senior FBI Official Faces ZERO Prosecution From DOJ For Lying to FBI About Accepting Free Gifts From Member of Media "IndyWatch Feed"

Apparently the DOJ under Sessions watch will prosecute Mike Flynn and George Papadopoulos for lying to the FBI, but wont prosecute senior FBI officials who lie to the FBI.

In June, Inspector General Michael Horowitz released his much anticipated review on FBI and DOJ actions during the Hillary Clinton email investigation.

According to the Inspector General, FBI employees were receiving tickets to sporting events, golfing outings, drinks and meals, and admittance to nonpublic social events, from reporters in exchange for unauthorized leaks.

This was all happening under leaker Comeys Directorship.

When questioned under oath about the gifts received by a member of the media, a senior FBI official liedand got away with it.

On Tuesday, the Office of the Inspector General released its findings of misconduct by a senior FBI official for accepting gifts from a member of the media and for lack of candor (lying).

The OIG investigation substantiated, and the senior FBI official acknowledged, that the official accepted two tickets to a professional sports event from the TV correspondent without paying the correspondent for the tickets. The senior FBI official initially maintained to the OIG in an interview under oath that the official had paid for the tickets, but five days later admitted to the OIG that the official did not. The OIG found that the senior FBI official lacked candor with the OIG in several respects about the tickets.

The senior FBI official violated federal laws when he accepted the gifts from a prohibited source (a member of the media) then he lied to federal officials UNDER OATH about it and faces zero prosecution.

Criminal prosecution was declined. The senior FBI official retired from the FBI during the OIGs investigation, the OIG report concluded.

It is safe to assume this lying FBI official w...

Lindsey Graham 2.0 Throws Down the Gauntlet Challenges Pocahontas Warren to See Who Has More Cherokee DNA (VIDEO) "IndyWatch Feed"

Senator Lindsey Graham has been on a roll lately and is showing no signs of slowing down.

On Tuesday, Senator Graham told Fox & Friends that he is going to take a DNA test to find out if he has more Native American blood than Senator Elizabeth Pocahontas Warren.

Im going to take a DNA test, Graham said. Ive been told my grandmother was part Cherokee Indian. It may all just be talk.

Graham says that he will reveal the results on the same show when they come in.

This is my Trump moment. This is reality TV, Graham joked.

The Senator said that he didnt really think about checking his DNA before Warren did, but now he is dying to know.

I think I can beat her, Graham asserted.

Senator Warren had released her DNA results this week in a stunt that backfired spectacularly.  Her claims of being some miniscule amount Native American were slammed by Cherokee Nation, who said that using a DNA test to lay claim to any connection to the Cherokee Nation or any tribal nation, even vaguely, is inappropriate and wrong. It makes a mockery out of DNA tests and its legitimate uses while also dishonoring legitimate tribal governments and their citizens, whose ancestors are well documented and whose heritage is proven.

Big Questions in Social Science "IndyWatch Feed"

Robert Wiblin interviews Tyler Cowen

WIBLIN: What would be your top three questions that youd love to see get more attention?

COWEN: Well, whats the single question is hard to say. But in general, the role of what is sometimes called culture. What is culture? How does environment matter? Im sure you know the twin studies where you have identical twins separated at birth, and they grow up in two separate environments and they seem to turn out more or less the same. Thats suggesting some kinds of environmental differences dont matter.

But then if you simply look at different countries, people who grow up, say, in Croatia compared to people who grow up in Swedenthey have quite different norms, attitudes, practices. So when youre controlling the environment that much, surrounding culture matters a great deal. So what are the margins where it matters and doesnt? What are the mechanisms? That, to me, is one important question.

A question that will become increasingly important is why do face-to-face interactions matter? Why dont we only interact with people online? Teach them online, have them work for us online. Seems that doesnt work. You need to meet people.

But what is it? Is it the ability to kind of look them square in the eye in meet space? Is it that you have your peripheral vision picking up other things they do? Is it that subconsciously somehow youre smelling them or taking in some other kind of input?

Whats really special about face-to-face? How can we measure it? How can we try to recreate that through AR or VR? I think thats a big frontier question right now. Itd help us boost productivity a lot.

Those would be two examples of issues I think about.
One of my favorite questions has always been, how do decisions that people feel they are making for personal, idiosyncratic reasons add up to social trends? For example, nobody thinks, I'm not married yet because of a worldwide trend toward later marriage, they think they haven't met the right person yet or what have you. People don't think, I don't want to move out of state because that is no longer popular; they have their own reasons they feel particular to them for wanting to stay close to home. And yet age at marriage is way up and far fewer people move between states. How, exactly, does that work?

Stormy Daniels and her creepy porn lawyer, Michael Avenatti lashed out at Trump Tuesday morning after the President referred to her as Horseface.

Stormy filed a defamation suit against President Trump after he mocked her over a sketch of the man who allegedly threatened herthe man in the sketch looked just like her ex-husband.

I'm Following A Dream "IndyWatch Feed"

The clip above is from Sueos Ilegales, a film still being shot with the goal of a February release. Director Angel Camilo, a naturalized U.S. citizen who immigrated from the Dominican Republic, presents the story of two young brothers of Salvadoran origin crossing the U.S./Mexico border illegally. It's a trip that changes their lives forever. Sueos Ilegales is an emotionally powerful and compelling drama, as you can see from the clip above, that shows the courage and determination of Rafa Guerra to help his brother after he become paraplegic while fighting to fulfill his own dreams of becoming a successful artist in a cruel and foreign land. I spoke with Sandra Hernndez of Latino Media, Angel's executive producer. Her family moved to the U.S. from El Salvador when she was a child and she is also a naturalized citizen. She sees the necessity of increasing voter awareness and action, especially among the young Latino population and feels that, although that's not what  Sueos Ilegales is about, crossing the border to follow your dreams very much is. "If," she told me, "we allowed our leaders to change the laws so that people like the main character of the movie have access to policies that are more open. The purpose of young voters is to change the policies for a better and more inclusive future."

For Wearing Tampon, Virginia Woman Says Shes Barred From Prison Visits "IndyWatch Feed"

A Virginia woman says state prison officials terminated a visit with her husband and accused her of attempting to smuggle drugs with a tampon days after the state suspended a policy that would have banned women from wearing the feminine hygiene product to visits.

Weeks later, according to the woman, her visits were unofficially suspended indefinitely as officials continue to investigate the package.

The woman, who asked not to be named out of fear of retaliation from prison officials, said a Virginia Department of Corrections (DOC) administrator told her she was one of several women who had their visits terminated that day (although a friend who was in the visitation room with her said she did not see anyone else dismissed). She told Shadowproof she felt like she was targeted because she was on her period.

The Virginia DOC did not return requests for comment on the alleged incident and visitation privileges. It posted a vague tweet on October 3 about drugs being found in the bathroom of one of its facilities but a spokeswoman did not disclose further details on the statement.

The confrontation marked the latest incident in which officials used contraband to exert their power over incarcerated women and visitors periods.

Several formerly incarcerated women and their loved ones spoke to Shadowproof about this practice, painting a picture in which menstruation is used to humiliate, shame, and create fear among imprisoned and visiting women.

The Virginia woman went to visit her husband on the weekend of September 29. She had visited her husband every weekend for the last five years and was familiar with the screening process, she said.

After passing through the body scanner, a guard asked her if she had underwear on. Yes maam, Im on my cycle, the woman replied. The guard then told her that she was not allowed to wear a tampon, referring to the recently suspended policy that forbid women visitors from wearing tampons or menstrual cups.

The woman informed her that the policy had been suspended and the guard apologized, taking her into a room to check under her bra. After being cleared, she visited with her husband.

At one point, she left to use the restroom, passing through the body scanner again before entering the visitation room. A guard came in minutes later to tell her the visitation was terminated without explanation.

Outside, she said a prison official approached her and read her Miranda rights, making her sign a statement confirming she was read her rights. He told her that officials were investigating a package that was found in the bathroom that had blood on it, she said.

He said, I just want you t...

Eight Years Ago President Obama Increased US Debt by $3 Trillion and 28% President Trumps Increase Only 8%! "IndyWatch Feed"

Guest post by Joe Hoft

Eight years ago President Obama increased the US debt by more than $3 Trillion and 28% in less than two years in office. 

President Trump took over in 2017 with nearly $20 trillion of debt that he inherited from Obama. Hes faced headwinds from the Federal Reserve (FED) which have increased interest rates by nearly two percent since the 2016 election. In spite of this, President Donald Trumps debt is half that of Obamas at the same time in their respective Presidencies and his increase is only at 8%.

The US Treasury maintains an inventory of the daily amount of US Debt outstanding.  The US Debt since President Trump was inaugurated on January 20th, 2017 through October 12, 2018, has increased by $1.6 trillion. On inauguration day the debt was at $19.9 trillion and on October 12, 2018 the debt stood at $21.6 trillion.

Although $1.6 trillion is a lot of money added to the debt, it is half of what President Obama added during the same time frame in office.

Where President Trump has increased the US Debt to date by only 8.3% , Obama increased the debt by 28.6% at this time in his Presidency or by $3.0 trillion!

President Obama inherited a US Debt amount of $10.6 trillion on his inauguration and increased it $3.0 trillion by October 15, 2010. Obama increased the US Debt amount...

Ted Cruzs Pressure on the EPA Helped Create a Huge Windfall for His Biggest Corporate Campaign Donor "IndyWatch Feed"

Texas-based refinery giant Valero Energy is the largest publicly traded corporate supporter of Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruzs re-election bid. Valero and its senior executives have poured at least $116,500 into Cruzs campaign coffers this cycle.

Cruz lobbied the Environmental Protection Agency to shift some of its policies  pressure that has led to hundreds of millions of dollars in savings for Valero.

Now, the companys political investment in Cruz appears be paying off. Over the the last year, Cruz lobbied the Environmental Protection Agency to shift some of its policies  pressure that has led to hundreds of millions of dollars in savings for Valero.

The fortuitous turn for Valero involves an EPA program created in 2005 that mandates the production of biofuels. In order to track compliance with the Renewable Fuel Standard, each batch of ethanol or biodiesel is labeled through what are known as Renewable Identification Numbers, or RINs. In order to comply with the mandate, companies may blend biofuels or purchase RINs on the marketplace. But the increasing compliance costs have angered the traditional oil industry, which has complained that the original policy is outdated and overly burdensome.

Valero is among the oil refinery firms that lack adequate facilities to blend biofuels, forcing the company to purchase RINs from the marketplace, thus making it more reliant than others on the market price of the tax credit.

Cruz, in turn, repeatedly lobbied the EPA to lower the cost of RINs. Last December, the senator asked the EPA to cap the biofuel credits at 10 cents, well below the market rate of 70 cents per RIN credit last year. He also met personally with President Donald Trump over the issue. The administration has awarded exemptions to the renewable fuel mandate, and allowed RINs to be awarded to fuel exports. The sustained advocacy against the program has spooked investors, driving down the price of the credits.

There are winners and losers with lower RIN prices: Gas stations, ethanol producers, and oil refineries that have invested in biofuel production may lose out. Critics of the program argue that ethanol is not the most efficient renewable energy and that farmland should be primarily used for food production, not fuel. But the biggest winners of crashing RIN prices are overwhelmingly oil companies, and Valero amid m...

Pennsylvania Voters Ready To Get Revenge "IndyWatch Feed"

Pennsylvania was one of the states targeted by Russian hackers in 2016. They helped put an illegitimate "president" into the White House by a handful of votes. In Pennsylvania it was 44,292 votes out of 5,897,174 cast. Kushner's team told the Russians to concentrate on four counties: Erie, Luzerne, Northampton, Lackawanna, Obama country in 2012, all of whom provided Trump with "plausible" wins in 2016. He took the state's 20 electoral votes by beating Hillary 2,970,733 (48.18%) to 2,926,441 (47.46%). In 3 weeks, the Keystone State gets its revenge.

The partisan makeup of the state's congressional delegation is about to shift radically, with likely wins by Democratic challengers Scott Wallace (PA-01), Madeleine Dean (PA-04), Mary Scanlon (PA-05), Chrissy Houlahan (PA-06), Susan Wild (PA-07), a guaranteed incumbent vs incumbent win by Democrat Conor Lamb (against walking dead Keith Rothfus) and two toss-ups that could put George Scott and-- God willing-- Jess King (the best candidate running in the state) into Congress instead of Trump rubber stamps Scott Perry and Lloyd Smucker.

On Monday morning Steven Shepard, writing for Politico, reported that the Democratic surge in Pennsylvania is being powered by concerns over healthcare. Fair enough-- though I'd say it's being powered at least as much by disdain for Trump. His greater point though, is that the state that was the 2016 linchpin of Trumpanzee's victory, will be be "ground zero of Democrats 2018 comeback." He's going by an AARP poll showing both Sen. Bob Casey and Gov. Tom Wolf with double-digit leads over their GOP challengers and Democrats ahead on the generic congressional ballot.




Donald Trump loves the military, but a Military Times poll says that the military doesn't love him back:

President Donald Trumps approval rating among active-duty military personnel has slipped over the last two years, leaving todays troops evenly split over whether theyre happy with the commander in chiefs job performance, according to the results of a new Military Times poll of active-duty service members.

About 44 percent of troops had a favorable view of Trumps presidency, the poll showed, compared to 43 percent who disapproved.

It's not clear from the story what the troops dislike about Trump. They think he's treating the military well:
More than 60 percent said they believe the military is in better shape now than it was under President Barack Obama, and nearly the same number have a favorable view of his handling of the military.
And they like the secretary of defense:
... former Marine Corps Gen. Jim Mattis ... has a favorable rating among troops of nearly 84 percent.
But women in the military are particularly dissatisfied with Trump -- 69% have an unfavorable opinion of him. Non-white servicemembers disapprove, 47%-29%. Officers like Trump less than enlisted troops. One naval officer says:
"... it seems like his presidency is a popularity contest for his ego. I think he rushes through decisions a lot based on emotion or helping his friends out. Im just thankful Im getting out of the military because him [Trump] rushing decisions could lead us into an unnecessary war."
The troops still like Trump more than the general public does, if barely. And they like him more than they liked Barack Obama. But the performative macho and flag-hugging haven't made Trump a hero to the troops.

Oh poor you, Melania. So abused. So picked upon. Fuck you!

Fuck you to the heavens and all the way down to the hell where you belong.

Melania, you signed up for any abuse you get when you married what you married. You won the Slovenian Whore Championship and snuck into America as a mail order blow up doll for your orange Jabba the Hutt. You even got your relatives here via chain migration, no irony there, eh? What more do you want? You want Borat to come from Kazakhstahn hand you a trophy?

Melania, do you think you're bullied? Is this you playing the victim card? If so, I'm surprised there are any of those cards left at the White House. Or, is this your way of trolling us and claiming that Cheeto the Hutt bullies you and maybe even hits you? Put up the evidence. Please, just do it. It'll be a joy to watch Kellyanne Conartist and Sarah Huckabee Sanders trying to explain it all away. They need another challenge. It's been hours, no minutes, since the last one.

You want to know what it's really like to be bullied, Melania? Then walk out on Cheeto Jabba and walk the streets of Washington or New York where millions of us will tell you "No. We really don't care. Fuck off."


Midterm 2018 MONTANA: Jon Tester vs. Matt Rosendale "IndyWatch Feed"

Big Sky country needs a new US Senator.

The one they have is a loony Democrat out of touch with the people of Montana. He does not share western rancher-farmer individualist values and has caved to the powers that be in Washington, DC.

He votes against Trump.

He voted against Judge Kavanaugh.

Tester must go.

Incumbent Jon Tester is running for his life and well he should be.

His opponent, Republican State Auditor Matt Rosendale, is a true Montanan.

He is business savvy and can crunch the numbers.

He is not part of a globalist elitist socialist cabal that is trying to take over America.

The pollsters call it a toss up.

It shouldnt be!

Trump won Montana by 20 points.

The President has gone to two rallies with overflow crowds to back Rosendale. But the people must turn out and vote.

Remember Tester was a YES man for Obama and backed Hilary.

Dont be fooled he always votes against the conservatives.

He is an anti-business prairie progressive.

He is a wolf in sheeps clothing. You get it?

He aint no moderate and there is no room for moderation in the new extremist Democrat- Socialist party.

Test takes more money from lobbyists and big banks than he lets on.

In fact, he is the top recipient of lobbyist money in the whole US Senate.

Bought and Paid For.

Is this what Montana deserves?

Get on your horse, ride your jeep and take your grandmother and kids to rid Montana of Tester.

ROGER STONE EXCLUSIVE: The Sexual Assaults of Bill Clinton and Why Hillary Lies About Them "IndyWatch Feed"

Guest post by Roger Stone


There is a line in the Freenauts catchy music video Justice for Danney Williams a ballad about Bill Clintons abandoned African-American son who was banished by Hillary. Why you always lyin? goes the refrain. Indeed it is the central question about Hillary Clinton.

First it is important to note that Bills relationship with women has nothing to do with infidelities or indiscretions but rather a well-established series of brutal sexual assaults where he has raped, assaulted, bitten or exposed himself to at multiple women. I detailed these in my best-selling book The Clintons War on Women

First Hillary try to excuse bills behavior as saying it was a long time ago as if that excused his deviance. Now she claims that Bills consensual abuse of Monica Lewinsky was not an abuse of power because Lewinsky was an adult. This woman is delusional.

David Brock, hardly a critic of the Clintons says in his book The Education of Hillary Rodham that it was Hillary who hired the heavy-handed private detectives and nasty lawyers to conduct a veritable terror campaign to silence the women Bill had sexually assaulted.

Ten Years After the Last Meltdown "IndyWatch Feed"

September marked a decade since the bursting of the housing bubble, which was followed by the stock market meltdown and the government bailout of the big banks and Wall Street. Last weeks frantic stock market sell-off indicates the failure to learn the lesson of 2008 makes another meltdown inevitable.

In 2001-2002 the Federal Reserve responded to the economic downturn caused by the bursting of the technology bubble by pumping money into the economy. This new money ended up in the housing market. This was because the so-called conservative Bush administration, like the liberal Clinton administration before it, was using the Community Reinvestment Act and government-sponsored enterprises Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to make mortgages available to anyone who wanted one regardless of income or credit history.

Banks and other lenders eagerly embraced this ownership society agenda with a lend first, ask questions when foreclosing policy. The result was the growth of subprime mortgages, the rush to invest in housing, and millions of Americans finding themselves in homes they could not afford.

When the housing bubble burst, the government should have let the downturn run its course in order to correct the malinvestments made during the phony, Fed-created boom. This may have caused some short-term pain, but it would have ensured the recovery would be based on a solid foundation rather than a bubble of fiat currency.

Of course Congress did exactly the opposite, bailing out Wall Street and the big banks. The Federal Reserve cut interest rates to historic lows and embarked on a desperate attempt to inflate the economy via QE 1, 2, and 3.

Low interest rates and quantitative easing have left the Fed with a dilemma. In order to avoid a return to 1970s-era inflation or worse, it must raise interest rates and draw down its balance sheet. However, raising rates too much risks popping what financial writer Graham Summers calls the everything bubble.

Today credit card debt is over a trillion dollars, student loan debt is at 1.5 trillion dollars, there is a bubble in auto loans, and there is even a new housing bubble. But the biggest part of the everything bubble is the government bubble. Federal debt is over 21 trillion dollars and expanding by tens of thousands of dollars per second.

The Fed is unlikely to significantly raise interest rates because doing so would cause large increases in federal government debt interest payme...

Oh, Come Now, Stalins Gulags Were Fun! "IndyWatch Feed"

Shop all books by Tom Woods

From The Tom Woods Letter:

Last week journalist and Bernie Sanders supporter Sameera Khan posted the following list on Twitter, purporting to tell the truth about Stalins gulags which werent really so bad after all!

Two week annual holidays at home

Marriage allowed

Cabins for married prisoners

Family stay with prisoners allowed

Wages equal to common citizens

Sending savings to family allowed

No prisoner uniform

No leg-irons and handcuffs

Common living, no cells

Freedom of movement inside Gulag area

Awards, rewards and reliefs for prisoners

Education, music and theater for prisoners

80% cases decided by citizens courts

Gulags were not celled-walled-barbed-wired jail buildings

Gulags were far-away labor colonies

Prison affairs managed by prisoners

Maximum sentence 10 years

Most sentences up to 5 years

Sentence revoked on good conduct

Employment after release

Equal citizenship rights after release

Prisoners allowed publishing newspaper

Freedom of speech allowed

After being called on this, Khan had to retract:

I have just found out that the memes I shared re: Stalins gulags were inaccurate. My apologies to all those who were offended. I also in no way intended to make light of the tragic mass persecutions they took place under the Stalin regime and I again apologize for sharing this misleading and offensive information.

Whoops! Just an innocent mistake!

She in no way intended to make light of the persecutions under Stalin.

Consult her list again. Do you believe that claim?

Can you imagine the motivation behind being at pains to demonstrate that the Soviet gulags werent really so bad?


Believe Women: Apply Congresss Christine Blasey Ford Test "IndyWatch Feed"

In the uproar over Christine Blasey Fords allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, many members of Congress declared that women have a right to be believed. Unfortunately, Congress is ignoring legions of women who have been sexually abused thanks to the immunity Congress provides to federal agents. But a federal appeals court may grant relief despite Washingtons negligence.

Congress gives the Transportation Security Administration almost $8 billion a year and does nothing to constrain how TSAs 43,000 screeners treat American travelers. A Justice Department lawyer insisted last year that theres no law establishing a specific degree of permissible intrusiveness of a (TSA) security screening pat-down. Americans have no legal recourse regardless of how TSAs screeners treat them, thus explaining why TSA pat-downs become more intrusive.

Many women have shared vivid allegations of TSA abuses on Twitter:

Dr. Jenn complained on Sept. 8: Is it common practice for TSA agents to forcefully slide their hand up my (15-year-old) daughters inner leg and ending at her vagina? Literally slamming their hand into my daughters vagina.

I was sexually assaulted by the TSA

Melissa Emmal, whose Twitter header page shows a banner calling for impeaching Trump, tweeted on Aug. 28: A @tsa agent at DCA told me the scanner had alarmed at my groin. She then searched me from my knee up until she met resistance (her words). She met resistance when she made contact with my labia FOUR times (front and back pat up of each leg). Felt like a sexual assault.

Emily White complained on Aug. 26: I was sexually assaulted by the @TSA on August 1 @LGAairports Marine Terminal at around 11:50 am. If you dont want your vagina paddled multiple times, I recommend avoiding that crew.


Making America Socialist Again "IndyWatch Feed"

Its not often that the president of the United States writes an op-ed for a major newspaper. But this is exactly what President Trump did on October 10 in USA Today.

Trump was railing against (and rightly so) the Democrats Medicare for All (S.1804) proposal to establish a government-run, single-payer health care system that eliminates all private and employer-based health care plans and will cost an astonishing $32.6 trillion during its first 10 years.

Writes Trump:

The Democrats plan means that after a life of hard work and sacrifice, seniors would no longer be able to depend on the benefits they were promised. By eliminating Medicare as a program for seniors, and outlawing the ability of Americans to enroll in private and employer-based plans, the Democratic plan would inevitably lead to the massive rationing of health care. Doctors and hospitals would be put out of business. Seniors would lose access to their favorite doctors. There would be long wait lines for appointments and procedures. Previously covered care would effectively be denied.

And why is Trump fighting so hard against the Democrats plan that would eviscerate Medicare? Trump says: I also made a solemn promise to our great seniors to protect Medicare.

And of course, its not just Trump. He asserts, correctly, that Republicans believe that a Medicare program that was created for seniors and paid for by seniors their entire lives should always be protected and preserved.

But its not just Medicare that Trump and the Republicans want to protect. Trump is committed to resolutely defending Medicare and Social Security from the radical socialist plans of the Democrats. In the latest Republican Party platform, they express their intention to save Medicare by modernizing it, empowering its participants, and putting it on a secure financial footing. Republicans also accept the responsibility to preserve and modernize a system of retirement security forged in an old industrial era beyond the memory of most Americans. All options should be considered to preserve Social Security.

In case you havent figured it out yet, let me get right to the point: Social Security and Medicare are socialist programs. They are cornerstones of the welfare state.

Social Security is a government-funded, government-managed, universal, mandatory Old-Age, Survivors, and Disability Insurance (OASDI) program administered by the Soc...

Converting Degeneracy into Prestige "IndyWatch Feed"

Speaking as a black woman wait second! Can I do that? Well, why not. Were now a nation consumed by make-believe, in which you can declare anything you want about yourself and insist that everyone else agree that it is so. If I identify this way, you must believe me! (Or else I will come after you with my cos-play mob and destroy you.)

The avatars out on the cutting edge of culture want to dissolve all the boundaries between all categories of everything except us and them: their allies and their enemies. Everything else is slated to become by force, if necessary a big, turbid, zero-gravity soup of intersectional relativity. The reasons for this sanctioned insanity are not exactly what you think they are.

Case in point: The Sunday New York Times Magazine profile of one Jill Soloway, Hollywood producer/director and now memoirist of the book She Wants It: Desire, Power and Toppling the Patriarchy (out this week, note that little detail.) Mx. Soloway (Mx. being the newest engineered intersectional salutation) runs a movie production company named Topple, best known for putting out the TV show Transparent, about an older man who decides hed be happier pretending to be a woman, and all the good family feeling that such a decision might engender, so to speak.

Gender was complicated for Mx. Soloway, for whom puberty arrived late, but with the sudden appearance of large breasts. Do other peoples memories of their teenage years include things like soccer competitions or blue ribbons? they write. All I have is the memory of being suddenly overwhelmed by becoming sex to others.

Aha, the curse of large breasts. What a life-annihilating affliction.

And yes, you read that right. Mx. Soloway now insists on being addressed as they (The Times obliges), invoking a linguistic hall-of-mirrors in which there are always two of you: the one located in space and the one in the mirror shall we surmise? or perhaps there is another explanation. One might goof on the narcissistic buffoonery of this stuff all the livelong day, but that would be tiresome and cruel, so I will just come to the point and tell you what is going on here, what it is all about.

It is about fashion, status, and prestige as has been the case in human social relations since earliest (hu)man put a banana leaf on its head, to the awe and wonder of others gathered round. All three of those conditions depend on a person being special, a figure apart from the boring, moiling, deplorable mob of morons who agree to be hostage to their own biology. Biology is a diseas...

A Red and Blue Coalition? "IndyWatch Feed"

On June 20, 1816, Thomas Jefferson wrote to William Crawford: If any state in the Union will declare that it prefers separation to a continuance in union, I have no hesitation in saying, Let us separate. Jefferson thought secession can be a good thing. Lincoln in his first inaugural presented secession as something always bad: Secession, he said, is the essence of anarchy. In saying this, Lincoln and the Lincolnian legacy placed, in effect, a Berlin Wall around the American States. Once in the Union, a State could never secede. The Civil War was a show of force to demonstrate that if a State tried, it would be shot. Less than fifty years later, Francis Bellamy wrote the Pledge of Allegiance (1892) as a schoolhouse indoctrination to teach children the meaning of the Civil War which. He said it could be reduced to three words: one nation indivisible.[i]

If anyone is an American, Jefferson is, and if anyone is an American, Lincoln is. But their visions of what America is and ought to be are incompatible. We have inherited a fractured constitutional memory. And the question is: To which of these visions are we to give our allegiance? From 1776 to 1860 the Jeffersonian vision prevailed in America. From 1865 until the 1990s, Lincolns vision prevailed, but then something entirely unexpected happened.

In 1991, 15 states seceded from the Soviet Union. This was the greatest peaceful revolution in modern history. American political elites did not see it coming even though Soviet officials told them what was about to happen. Their minds were so controlled by the notion that a modern state is one and indivisible they could not imagine peaceful secession. That Soviet secession occurred peacefully had a ripple effect, and soon after a number of peaceful secessions occurred in Europe and more secession movements have arisen. The result is that secession is now thought of in Europe as a neutral act to be evaluated on its merits rather than as something necessarily bad as Lincoln classified it when he identified it with...

Hurricanes Give Americans a Taste of the Disaster "IndyWatch Feed"

Florida residents from the eastern part of Panama City Beach to Apalachicola now know what a war zone is like. 750,000 people are without power and without water. Thousands of homes and commercial structures no longer exist. Mexico Beach has been more or less wiped off the face of the earth. Many areas are still inaccessible. Many people are still trapped in place because of debris and downed trees across roads.

Families searching for missing family members are at times obstructed by police trying to keep looters and gawkers out of the area and trying to save what little traffic capacity there is for emergency and repair crews. It is difficult to imagine people so lacking in humanity that they go to loot what little remains of the property of such damaged people.

But perhaps it is not difficult to image such people. Perhaps such people have been running US foreign policy since the Clinton regime. If you look at these photos of the damage, you will have an idea of the damage our government acting in our name has inflicted on eight countries since the Clinton regime: Serbia, Afghanistan, Iraq, Somalia, Libya, Syria, Pakistan, and the ongoing atrocity in Yemen. Anyone looking at the devastation of the Florida panhandle from Panama City to Apalachicola could think they are looking at the work of Dick Cheney and his Zionist neocon warmongers that devastated the Middle East and North Africa.

Americans are curious people. They sent large sums of money to parents whose children were allegedly killed in school shootings, the reality of which many challenge, and they sent large sums of money to support Christine Blasey Ford for accusing Kavanagh of attempted rape despite her inability to substantiate her charge. Will the compassion and empathy that responds to ideological crimes such as those ascribed to white heterosexual victimizers, gun owners, and illegal immigration opponents also respond to the victims of Hurricane Michael and US foreign policy?

Why is it that the liberal-progressive-left can get so upset about an alleged attempted rape 30 or 40 years ago but accept without protest Washingtons destruction of the lives, prospects, and infrastructure of millions of peoples in eight countries? All of the immigrants about which Trump complains are people fleeing from Americas wars on their countries. If America and Europe do not want refugees, why do they engage in wars that produce refugees?


Hamptons Super Rich Installing Luxury Panic Rooms "IndyWatch Feed"

Fearing the vicious Salvadoran MS-13 gang, which has plagued Long Islands Suffolk County and threatens to spread its terror further, residents from the wealthy Hamptons area in New York are turning their homes into fortresses.

The extreme security measures include sleeping with guns, installing bulletproof windows and sometimes even luxury panic rooms.

Supermarket mogul, John Catsimatidis, told the New York Post that he sleeps with a gun underneath his pillow. A Walther PPK/S, the same one James Bond carried, he said.

[My wife] Margo prefers a shotgun. Although, once, she thought she heard something, got the shotgun out and shot through the door, he added.

Fears that the gang is spreading to the eastern tip of Long Island were bolstered by Southampton Towns police chief Steven Skrynecki, after he stationed police with anti-terrorism gear at charity galas throughout the summer of 2017.

In April, the gang murdered four men at a soccer field in Central Islip. Three months later a Hampton Bays brothel, which was raided by police, was found to be tagged with an MS-13 sign.

The gang is in Suffolk County. Whats an hour car ride? They are near, an unnamed Southampton homeowner said.

Long Island contractor Chris Cosban, whose company Covert Interiors installs pricey panic rooms, told the daily: The big thing [with homeowners] in the Hamptons is that if somebody has it, they [all] want it.

The price for a panic room ranges from $25,000 to over $200,000 which Cosban explains with a wow factor.

They like to brag about it, he said. People used to open up their garages and show off their Lamborghinis, but now they take guests to the wine bar in their safe room, said Herman Weisberg from personal security firm Sage Intelligence.

He explained that clients look at the panic rooms as a secondary space that can double as a wine cellar or a secure room to display guns.

Italy Declares War "IndyWatch Feed"

If there were ever any doubts that the leaders of the Euroskeptic coalition that now runs Italy has a plan to defy the European Union its proposed budget should quell them. Both Deputy Prime Ministers, Luigi Di Maio of Five Star Movement and Matteo Salvini of The League, were adamant about locking horns with European Union leadership over all issues of sovereignty between now and Mays European Parliamentary elections.

Their budget proposal which included both tax cuts and universal income blew past the EU budget limit of 2.0% of GDP, coming in at 2.4%. It has put their Finance Minister, Giovanni Tria, in a difficult position because Tria doesnt want to negotiate this budget with Brussels, preferring a less confrontational, read more pro-EU, approach.

Salvini and Di Maio, however, have other plans. And since I began covering this story last year on my blog, Ive said that it was imperative that Salvini force the issue of the Troikas demands the EU, European Central Bank and the International Monetary Fund back down their throats on debt restructuring/forgiveness.

What I meant then, and I was focused on Salvinis emergence as the leader of this fight, was that Salvini and Italy, because they are more than technically insolvent, have all the leverage in the negotiations. The size of their outstanding debt and the liabilities existent on the balance sheets of banks across Europe, most notably the nearly $1 trillion in TARGET 2 liabilities, are something Juncker, Draghi, Merkel and Christine LaGarde at the IMF simply cannot ignore.

But, to do this Salvini and now Di Maio have to make a good faith effort to negotiate a good deal for Italy with Brussels, Berlin and the IMF. This is why the budget squeaked past the 2.0% limit and then they walked it back to 2.0% but with provisions they knew would anger the EU finance ministers.

The point of this is to push Brussels and paint them as the bad guys to shift public sentiment back towards an Italeave position. Italys problems are not solvable with Germany holding the purse strings for all the EU countries.

So, the first prong of their assault on the power structure of the EU is this, challenge them on their budget while making strong statements to the rest of Europe that they are not looking to exit the euro. If they do, it will be Germany forcing that situation.

The other prong of the assault is to remake the EU from within, which Salvini has openly stated is one of his goals.

It started more than a month ago when he met with Hungarian President Viktor Orban who agreed on a strategy of creating a League of Leagues to unite the opposition to the current technocratic rule on the European Commission.

They were clear then that the goal was to wrest control of the European Commiss...

The People Stopping Election Interference "IndyWatch Feed"

Last week, Mark Zuckerberg made the media rounds to give a rather shady explanation of why Facebook suddenly closed hundreds of incredibly popular pages in whats being called The Alternative Media Purge. Zuckerberg accused the closed pages, many of which had millions of fans, of spreading political spam.

Ironically, many of the pages that were shut down had absolutely nothing to do with politics or elections, unless you include the fact that they recommended skipping the entire circus. None of these pages were accused of being the Russians, who were the scapegoat of the last surprise presidential election results. A couple of the things that many of the pages did have in common, incidentally, were an anti-war outlook and a police watchdog mentality.

But as far as making the election more resistant to interference, the result of the Alternative Media Purge is the diametric opposite. People will now only get one side of the story.

The alternative media changed everything during the last presidential election.

When Donald Trump announced his candidacy for president, much of the world snickered. Who was this reality television star to take on part of the Clinton Empire? There was no way, people scoffed, that Trump could possibly win.

Its a proven fact that Hillary Clinton was in cahoots with the mainstream media throughout her candidacy. And the reason its proven is that organizations like Wikileaks released the evidence of it in a series of emails with her campaign manager and people like Donna Brazile of CNN. Brazile finally publically admitted that shed done so and that it was her job to make all our Democratic candidates look good.

The alternative media jumped on this story, as well as many other questionable emails that were divulged by Wikileaks, while the mainstream pretended that none of this was happening. And the mainstream did very little to cover the Democratic National Convention, during which the nomination was stolen from Bernie Sanders, who if were being honest probably would have had a much better chance of beating Trump than the notoriously unlikable Clinton. Heres my coverage of it at the time.

The alternative media, never a fan of the goings-on in Clintonland, from the Haiti scandal all the way...

How Many Households Qualify as Middle Class? "IndyWatch Feed"

By the standards of previous generations, the middle class has been stripmined of income, assets and purchasing power.

What does it take to be middle class nowadays? Defining the middle class is a parlor game, with most of the punditry referring to income brackets as the defining factor.

People tend to self-report that they belong to the middle class based on income, but income is not the key metric: 12 other factors are more telling measures of middle class membership than income.

In Why the Middle Class Is Doomed (April 17, 2012) I listed five minimum threshold characteristics of membership in the middle class:

1. Meaningful healthcare insurance (i.e. not phantom insurance with $5,000 deductibles, etc.) and life insurance.

2. Significant equity (25%-50%) in a home or equivalent real estate

3. Income/expenses that enable the household to save at least 6% of its income

4. Significant retirement funds: 401Ks, IRAs, etc.

5. The ability to service all debt and expenses over the medium-term if one of the primary household wage-earners lose their job

I then added a taken-for-granted sixth:

6. Reliable vehicles for each wage-earner

Author Chris Sullins suggested adding these additional thresholds:

7. If a household requires government assistance to maintain the family lifestyle, their Middle Class status is in doubt.

8. A percentage of non-paper, non-family home hard assets such as family heirlooms, precious metals, tools, etc. that can be transferred to the next generation, i.e. generational wealth.

9. Ability to invest in offspring (education, extracurricular clubs/training, etc.).

10. Leisure time devoted to the maintenance of physical/spiritual/mental fitness.

Correspondent Mark G. recently suggested two more:

11. Continual accumulation of human and social capital (new skills, networks of collaborators, markets for ones services, etc.)

And the money shot:

12. Family ownership of income-producing assets such as rental properties, bonds, etc.

The key point of these thresholds is that propping up a precarious illusion of consumption and status signifiers does not qualify as middle class. To qualify as middle class (that is, what was considered middle class a generation or two ago), the household must actually own/control wealth that wont vanish if the investment bubble du jour pops, and wont be wiped out by a medi...

Brain Imaging Shows Autistic Brains "IndyWatch Feed"

study published earlier in 2018 should have made headlines everywhere, as it discovered historically high amounts of aluminum in autistic brains. The study was conducted by some of the worlds leading scientists in the field.

Five people were used in the study, four males and one female, all between the ages of 14-50. Each of their brains contained unsafe and high amounts of aluminum compared to patients with other diseases where high brain aluminum content is common, like Alzheimers disease, for example.

Of course, this caused people to downplay the study, citing a low sample group, but thats not entirely a valid argument given the reason why this study was conducted. As cited in the study above, recent studies on animals, published within the past few years, have supported a strong connection between aluminum, and aluminum adjuvants used in human vaccinations, and Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD.)

Studies have also shown that injected aluminum does not exit the body, and can be detected inside the brain even a year after injection. That being said, when we take aluminum in from sources such as food, the body does a great job of getting it out, but there is a threshold. Its important to acknowledge that the aluminum found in the brain, could be due to the presence of aluminum adjuvants in vaccines. This latest study also identified the location of aluminum in these tissues, and where they end up. This particular study was done on humans, which builds upon, and still supports, the findings of the animal studies.

This is also important because the majority of studies that previously examined human exposure to aluminum have only used hair, blood and urine samples. The study also makes a clear statement regarding vaccines, stating that Paediatric vaccines that include an aluminum adjuvant are an indirect measure of infant exposure to aluminum and their burgeoning use has been directly correlated with increasing prevalence of ASD.

Aluminum, in this case, was found in all four lobes of the brain.

The aluminum content of brain tissues from donors with a diagnosis of ASD was extremely high (Table 1). While there was significant inter-tissue, inter-lobe and inter-subject variability the mean aluminium content for each lobe across all 5 individuals was towards the higher end of all previ...


Does Adelson Own The GOP? Or Is He Just Leasing It? "IndyWatch Feed"

On Friday Alex Isenstadt reported for Politico that "a deluge of Democratic spending in the final days of the battle for the House has triggered recriminations among Republicans and forced the party to lean on its biggest patron to salvage their majority. Since the end of July, Republican candidates in the 70 most contested races have reserved $60 million in TV ads, compared to $109 million for Democratic hopefuls... The disparity is almost certain to grow, as former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg makes good on plans to spend nearly $80 million to help Democrats flip the House."
From Democrat candidates to outside groups, weve never seen anything like this before, said Brian Walsh, president of the pro-Trump America First Action super PAC. They are dumping in cash by the truckload.

Desperate for help, Republicans are turning to their go-to benefactor: Las Vegas casino mogul Sheldon Adelson. The 85-year-old ally of President Donald Trump has made another contribution in the range of $20 million to the House GOP-aligned Congressional Leadership Fund super PAC, according to two Republican officials familiar with the donation. Party leaders are hopeful he'll fork over even more.

Senior Republicans are in touch with other influential givers. On Tuesday, White House senior adviser Jared Kushner, whos been in regular contact with Adelson and courted many of the partys most elite donors in recent weeks, appeared at a board meeting of the influential Republican Jewish Coalition. That evening, at the Ritz-Carlton in Washington, he addressed a gathering hosted by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

CONFIRMED: Lineage Studies Reveal Elizabeth Warrens 1/32nd Ancestor Rounded Up Cherokee Indians During the Trail of Tears "IndyWatch Feed"


On Monday Senator Warren released a DNA study where she claims she is 1/512th Native American.

The Boston Globe later issued a correction to their initial report The DNA test revealed that Elizabeth Warren is not 1/512 Native American, shes 1/1,024. Thats 0.0009765625.

Warren actually has less Indian in her bloodline than most Caucasian Americans.

But that hasnt stopped Warren from promoting this lie over the years.

Now this
Elizabeth Warrens more immediate ancestor her great, great, great Grandpa rounded up Cherokee Indians and herded them to the point of origin of the infamous Trail of Tears.

Via Breitbart:

As I pointed out in my article here on Sunday, no evidence supports this claim. O.C. Sarah Smith Crawford had no Cherokee heritage, was listed as white in the Census of 1860, and was most likely half Swedish and half English, Scottish, or German, or some combination thereof. (Note, the actual 1894 marriage license makes no claim of Cherokee ancestry.)

But the most stunning discovery about the life of O.C. Sarah Smith Crawford is that her husband, Ms. Warrens great-great-great grandfather, was apparently a member of the Tennessee Militia who rounded up Cherokees from their family homes in the Southeastern United States and herded them into government-built st...

March of the Migrant Caravan of Hondurans Marching to US Border DOUBLES IN SIZE To 3,000 People! "IndyWatch Feed"

Here we go again!

Over the weekend, approximately 1,300 Hondurans were marching to Guatemala en route to Mexico so they could make their way up to the US border right in time for the November election.

On Monday, the migrant caravan, dubbed March of the Migrant, DOUBLED IN SIZE as it crossed through the Guatemalan border on its way to Mexico where they will head northbound to the United States.

According to Reuters, up to 3,000 migrants crossed from the Honduras into Guatemala after a standoff with police in riot gear Monday.

Via Reuters:

The crowd more than doubled in size from Saturday, when some 1,300 people set off from northern Honduras in what has been dubbed March of the Migrant, an organizer said. The migrants plan to seek refugee status in Mexico or pass through to the United States.

Reuters could not independently verify the number of participants, but images showed a group carrying backpacks and clogging roads near the border, some waving the Honduran flag.

Rows of Guatemalan police in black uniforms, some wearing helmets and shields, initially blocked migrants from reaching a customs booth, Reuters images showed. It was not clear how long the standoff lasted, but the group was ultimately able to cross, said march organizer Bartolo Fuentes, a former Honduran lawmaker.

A police official on site said all Central Americans could pass freely through the region as long as they complied with migration control.

Midterm 2018 MISSOURI: Claire McCaskill vs. Josh Hawley "IndyWatch Feed"

Missouri is called the Show Me State.

Well lets show a few things.

In 2018 Republican Attorney General, Josh Hawley, opposes sitting Democrat Senator Claire McCaskill, who wants a second term in the US Senate.

This Red State should be Red again soon.

President Donald J. Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell warmly endorse Hawley.

McCaskill is a hard core Democrat who voted against Judge Kavanaugh.

This is a high profile race with national attention.

McCaskill is not well liked and her support is paper-thin.

She is a Trump-hater.

Josh Hawley is a folksy, do well local kid, who is becoming better known and people like what they see.

He is a member of the Federalist Society, a brilliant graduate of Yale Law School, clerked for the Supreme Court, and is what some on the right have dubbed future presidential timber.

This is high praise!

He would make a GREAT Senator for Missouri.

McCaskill is well known and is BAD for Missouri.

She has views on the Left on health care, jobs, the economy, taxes, and immigration.

She wants to get rid of ICE, wont secure the border or fund our military.

She is trying to BUY the election with out of state money from Hollywood and Wall Street.

She flies around on a private jet and rarely stands with the everyday good people of the great state of Missouri. She wont get her boots dirty.

She is a SWAMP creature.

Hawley will stand with Trump.

McCaskill certainly does not.

Trump won Missouri by 20 points.

Show HIM who you are FOR!

Make this viral in Missouri.

RED STATE BLUES: OKeefe Strikes in Missouri McCaskill and Clan Exposed as Fakes and Frauds in Guns, Lies and Videotape "IndyWatch Feed"

James OKeefe strikes again!

Project Veritas has been focusing on the midterms by targeting Democrat candidates with its new series dubbed Secrets and Lies.

On Monday evening, Project Veritas released an undercover video of endangered Missouri Democrat Senator Claire McCaskill admitting to being deceptive about her stance on firearms and immigration policies.

McCaskill is a red-state Democrat Senator so she has to appear pro 2nd Amendment to her constituents because Missourians love their guns.

Claire McCaskills staffers were also caught on video saying she puts on a moderate front to get the Republican votes.

Senator McCaskills staffers admit she is pro-DACA, pro-DREAMERS and against the border wall even though she runs ads to the contrary claiming she is strong on border security.

Via Project Veritas:

Senator McCaskill Talks Gun Bans on Tape

Senator McCaskill revealed her intention to vote on various gun control measures in undercover footage:

MCCASKILL: Well if we elect enough Democrats well get some gun safety stuff done. They wont let us vote on it, weve got 60 votes for a number of measures that would help with gun safety, but McConnell wont let em come to the floor.

JOURNALIST: Like bump stocks, ARs and high capacity mags?

MCCASKILL: Universal background checks, all of that But if we have the kind of year I think we might have I think we could actually be in a position to get votes on this stuff on the floor and wed get 60 [votes]

JOURNALIST: So you would be on board with the bump stocks and high capacity mags.

MCCASKILL: Of course! Of course!

Despite her strong views on gun control, Senator McCaskill does not tend to promote them on the campaign trail or on her website. Rob Mills, who works on Senator McCaskills campaign, says that is because she has a bunch of Republican voters.

Another individual who works on Senator McCaskill campaign, Carson Pope, adds that a semi-automatic rifle ban is more so what she would support.

Nicolas Starost, another individual who works on Senator McCaskills campaign, explains how President Obama wont campaign for Senator McCaskill in Missouri despite their similar views on politics. Starost says this is because Senator McCask...

BREAKING: Former Trump Campaign Official Carter Page Sues DNC and Perkins Coie Law Firm (Video) "IndyWatch Feed"

Former Trump Campaign official Carter Page filed charges against the Democrat National Committee.

The Democrat National Committee lawyers met with the FBI on Russian allegations before the FISA surveillance warrant was issued to spy on Carter Page and Trump campaign officials.

A top lawyer working with DNC and Clinton campaign contacted FBIs general counsel late 2016 -provided documents for Russia probe as fed investigators prepared surveillance warrant Trump campaign aide Carter Page. Then the Obama FBI unleashed the power of the Deep State to spy on Page, fellow Trump officials, and the Trump administration.

Via Lou Dobbs Tonight:

Chuck Ross at The Daily Caller has more.

Former Trump campaign associate Carter Page filed a defamation lawsuit Monday against the Democratic National Committee and its law firm, which commissioned the infamous Steele dossier.

Page filed the suit in federal court in Oklahoma against the DNC, the law firm, Perkins Coie, and two of its partners, Marc Elias and Michael Sussmann.

Perkins Coie, which also represented the Hillary Clinton campaign, is the firm that hired Fusion GPS, the opposition researcher that investigated Donald Trumps links to Russia.

Elias was Perkins Coies main contact to Fusion GPS, which was founded by three former Wall Street Journal reporters.

As part of the $1 million project, Fusion GPS hired former British spy Christopher Steele to conduct the investigation. The result was a 35-page dossier full of allegations that the Kremlin is blackmailing Trump and...


Are "Ex"-Republicans Ever Really Ex-Republicans? (Spoiler: Yes, But Almost Never) "IndyWatch Feed"

If there was a Howie Klein Award for Political Truth-Telling and I got to award it, last week's would have gone to DailyKos diarist Tom Brock for his Saturday essay, Former Republican Chairs Local Dem Committee... What Could Go Wrong?!, nominated by my friend Fergie, the best source of Virginia political intelligence I know.

Here at DWT, we often discuss the DCCC's absolutely-positively favorite kind of Democratic candidate, "ex"-Republicans. They recruit them at every opportunity and then spend millions of dollars trying to get them into Congress while stiffing actual Democrats running. The quotation marks around "ex," indicates that though they may changed their party registration... for those of us who are looking for a little something more, well... they are not actual Democrats. The DCCC is not-- not ever-- looking for a little something more. The other day when I heard long-time Trump shyster attorney Michael Cohen had switched his voter registration from Republican to Democrat, my first thought was that Pelosi and Ben Ray Lujan would have him running for Peter King's seat on his native Long Island in 2020. Not just an "ex"-Republican but a celebrity with lots of wealthy friends... a DCCC wet dream.

Tom Brock is a member of the Virginia Beach Democratic Committee and he started with a perfect paragraph: "When we allow Republicans into local Democratic committee leadership, we end up with Republicans on the most effective voter outreach tool that we have. The  local Virginia Beach Democratic Chair has unilaterally included Republicans on the VBDC Ballot guide that is handed out at every polling location in the city. (Low information voters rely on these to make voting decisions.)"

Today Elizabeth Warren released DNA test results demonstrating that she has a Native American ancestor, as she's long claimed. Over at BuzzFeed, editor in chief Ben Smith, formerly of Politico, pretends that Warren is the real problem, because, as he sees it, she's just artificially propped up harmless old Donald Trump, who'll probably be ignored in 2020 in any case:

As Democrats look toward a presidential primary that will begin in earnest approximately 11 seconds after the midterms, candidates should be ready for a new reality, and the media for a new challenge.

The reality is that the most important pundit, commentator, and great mentioner of the 2020 primary will be President Donald Trump.

And the challenge for the media will be whether or not to let him dominate the Democratic primary.

... [Warren's] video answers a question Trump raised, takes a piece of bait hed laid out and Warren furiously, seeing no other option, took as a symbol of her willingness to fight. The video is, most of all, the strongest Democratic candidate, thinking first of how to win the Democratic nomination, engaging entirely in absurd, racist terms laid out by the president of the United States.
The implication here is that if Warren had just said or done nothing, the media might have just let the "absurd" matter drop -- foolhardy Elizabeth Warren had to prove she's really tough, so she took Trump on, when the whole thing would have just blown over.

I don't know where to start with this. First of all, as I mentioned in the last post, attacks like this on Warren date back to Scott Brown's 2012 campaign; they've been a Fox staple ever since. Warren is not just dealing with one bully, as Smith suggests -- she's dealing with a gang.

Moreover, there's no question that this would have been a millstone around her neck if she hadn't addressed it head-on. After Hillary Clinton and her emails, or John Kerry and the Swift boats, Mike Dukakis and Willie Horton, can any seriously claim that Warren could have simply ignored this and expected it to go away?

Smith continues:
Whats more, Trump and the reporters covering him will be bound by an eternal truth of presidential campaign coverage: Re-election campaigns are grindingly boring. The presidency, not the campaign, is the story; the kind of narrative, conflict, and struggle for the direction of a party and country that make primaries so riveting. Trump, if he isnt careful, could find that hes not the most interesting political story in the country, and he will surely want to get...


Midterm 2018 MICHIGAN: John James vs. Debbie Stabenow "IndyWatch Feed"

Michigans Democrat Senator Debbie Stabenow is a lazy incumbent.

She wants to walk to a second term.

John James, an African-American businessman and Iraq veteran says, not so fast

The polls say this is a likely win for the Dems.

James has low voter ID and is not well known. He has run few ads or commercials to date.

Get to know him and you will LOVE what you seea fighter for America.

The differences between Stabenow and James couldnt be greater.

He is a combat vet and a job creator, while she is a 43-year career politician who has been paid over $4 million dollars in taxpayer salaries and has only passed five bills into law.

She is a do-nothing liberal Democrat.

She has outspent her Republican opponent by 6 to 1using out of state money and cash from every lobbyist in the Washington, DC SWAMP.

Stabenow does not like to debate.

Maybe because she lacks talent? She does not come across well.

The do nothing Senator was a Sanders supporter before she locked in for Hilary for President.

She voted AGAINST Judge Kavanaugh.

Trump won Michigan in 2016 and that surprised people.

We need to make it close in 2018 and take James over the finish line.

Surprise people, again!

James has said he is sick of the Democrat breed of dependency.

As an awesome person and an outsider he understands national security because he HAS DONE it.

He understands job creation because he HAS DONE it.

He is a disciplined, real world leader with the skill sets needed in the US Senate.

What has Debbie Stabenow done for Michigan? For America?

Protest Song Of The Week: American Dream By J.S. Ondara "IndyWatch Feed"

Editors Note

The following protest song was initially featured at Ongoing History Of Protest Songs.

J.S. Ondara is a Kenya-born and raised singer-songwriter, who moved to the United States to pursue his music career. He moved to Minneapolis, Minnesota, out of admiration for his musical hero and native Minnesotan, Bob Dylan.

His nationality gives him a unique perspective when it comes to critiquing the American experience, which he does on his upcoming debut album, Tales of America. The album will be released on February 1, 2019.

American Dream is the first official music video and single off the album. Both the tune and video shatters the illusion of the elusive American dream.

The elusive American Dream is eloquently highlighted in the following verse: But theres a beast on the clock, guarding against the folk, and the ghost from the river is watching. She wont let you get any close.

Lyrics such as, I say hallelujah, its your cue to shoot at, hint at American gun culture and religious hypocrisy.

The video incorporates potent visuals to complement the songs message.

As Ondara told NPR Music, The video follows a man, as he sets upon a journey to purchase a weapon. While on his way, we get a glimpse of the world around him through his eyes, which gives us some insight into his state of mind.

Ultimately, the video explores the turbulent times in the country, socially and politically, thereby throwing a shade of irony to the popular notion of The American Dream.'

The video also references Dylans classic protest anthem The Times They Are a-Changin, with the lyric, Your sons and your daughters are beyond your command, inscribed on a sheet of paper.

During the 1960s, Dylan wrote several timeless socially conscious tunes. With American Dream, Ondara offers his Dylanesque reflection on America.

Cherokee Nation SAVAGES Elizabeth Warren in Statement After Her Latest Stunt to Prove Native American Heritage "IndyWatch Feed"

Cherokee Nation responded to Elizabeth Warrens latest stunt attempting to prove she is of Native American descent.

This didnt go well

A DNA test is useless to determine tribal citizenship. Current DNA tests do not even distinguish whether a persons ancestors were indigenous to North or South America, Cherokee Nation Secretary of State Chuck Hoskins Jr. Said. Sovereign tribal nations set their own legal requirements for citizenship, and while DNA tests can be used to determine lineage, such as paternity to an individual, it is not evidence for tribal affiliation.

Using a DNA test to lay claim to any connection to the Cherokee Nation or any tribal nation, even vaguely, is inappropriate and wrong. It makes a mockery out of DNA tests and its legitimate uses while also dishonoring legitimate tribal governments and their citizens, whose ancestors are well documented and whose heritage is proven, the statement said.

The end of the statement torched Elizabeth Warren.

Senator Warren is undermining tribal interests with her continued claims of tribal heritage. OUCH!

Elizabeth Pocahontas Warren released a DNA study Monday that claims she is 1/1,024 Native America. Thats 0.0009765625.

The average white person in America has nearly double the amount of American Indian DNA (0.18%) as Elizabeth Warren (0.098%), who claims to be Cherokee.

EPIC! Kayne West Exposes Mind-Control Tactics of the Democrat Partys Corrupt Media and Entertainment Mob "IndyWatch Feed"

In an Epic Twitter Soliloquy, Kayne West Exposes the Mind-Control Tactics of the Democrat Partys Corrupt Media and Entertainment Mob

Americans have frequently witnessed different versions of the Democrat Party s political mobs, which take different forms and utilize different means to intimidate their targets, from the overtly violent paid protesters known as Antifa, who are currently threatening ICE Agents along innocent bystanders in Portland, OR, to the paid professional agitators that make up much of the Womens March and Code Pink, who recently besieged Senators during Justice Kavanaughs confirmation process.

Recent polls show that the majority of Americans do not condone the Democrat Partys use of political mobs, whose sole purpose is to intimidate their political targets. The implication of this sentiment demonstrates that a growing number of Americans can see right through theses deceptive and manipulative political tactics. It would seem that the Democrats are in desperate need of a new playbook.

In the case of Kanye West, the Democrats activated their go-to favorite the media and entertainment mob composed of their corrupt allies within the legacy news, entertainment, and technology-based media infrastructure. The media mob wasted no time bringing the full weight of their attacks against West in any effort to subvert his freedom of speech and general self-expression. Its abundantly clear that Kanyes poignant demonstration of love for the black community, for President Trump, and for America has this Democrat Party, their leftist financiers, and the political media mob in a state of severe panic.

During his landmark meeting with President Trump in the Oval Office last week, Kanye literally mesmerized the West Wing and by extension the American Public, when he expounded upon the importance of free thought and expression without fear of reprisal and recrimination.

Wests exchanges with President Trump are undeniably of high cultural import. His historic treatise explored principles that are fundamental to freedom of thought, freedom of speech, and freedom of belief all profound inter-related American ideals, all of which are liberties set forth in Americas Bill of Rights as inherent God given individual civil rights.

In response to the latest wave of media mob attacks, West pos...

Kevin McCarthy Wants To Be Speaker-- And He's Very, Very Corrupt "IndyWatch Feed"

The DCCC never seems to be very enthusiastic about targeting Republican leaders. This cycle, for example, they made sure there would be relatively strong opponents for the candidates in the districts that surround Kevin McCarthy's CA-23, while ignoring McCarthy entirely. They have no candidate opposing him, not even someone viable enough to build towards a 2020 challenge. CA-25 has a hot race between Katie Hill (D) and Steve Knight (R). CA-22 has a hot race-- although ignored by the DCCC-- between Andrew Janz (D) and Devin Nunes (R) and CA-21 has a warm race between TJ Cox and David Valadao, CA-04 has a hot race between Jessica Morse and Tom McClintock, CA-24 has a Democratic incumbent and CA-08, has two Republicans facing off in the general. And in McCarthy's own CA-23? Not a creature is stirring.

Going into the final stretch, the pitiful and meaningless Democrat "running," Tatiana Matta, has $6,103 up against McCarthy's $4,135,573. Neither the DCCC nor Pelosi's SuperPAC has spent a cent against McCarthy-- something like how they treated Paul Ryan for his entire career. The L.A. Times exposed an interesting McCarthy story today, one that the DCCC will not publicize and that Tatiana Matta doesn't have the means to spread: House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthys family benefited from U.S. program for minorities based on disputed ancestry


LEAKED: Here Are the Demands Ecuador Has Given Julian Assange in Order to End His Isolation "IndyWatch Feed"

Despite numerous reports claiming that the communications of Julian Assange have been restored, they are not yet and there will be a severe regime of penalties and sanctions on his speech and writing when they are.

The team at WikiLeaks was informed on Friday that his communications would be restored on Monday, October 15, but so far there has not been any change. In a grave violation of free speech, Assange was also presented with a nine page document that includes outlining limitations and restrictions on what he will be able to do and say online.

The new rules also promise to potentially use the UK police against visitors or to sieze communications equipment.

The protocols Assange will be forced to agree to in order to end his isolation have been leaked online in Spanish.

The draconian document demands that he avoids any activities that could be political or would interfere in interior matters of other states essentially squashing his freedom of speech and his ability to publish.

It also provides new rules for visitors.


The document begins by outlining the new rules for visitors. It says that any person outside the Embassy or the ecuadorian Government, without exception, that wishes to visit Assange will need to request prior authorization in writing addressed to the Chief of the Embassy of Ecuador. They will need to include their full names, nationality, copies of identification, reason for the visit, their profession and workplace, email accounts and links to their social media, and serial numbers for any phones or tablets they wish to keep with them during the visit.

Additionally, the IMEI of visitors cellphone chips is also required for their intelligence collection operation. This must be sent through email, a return email obtained, and that must be printed and brought to the appointment.

For frequent visitors, Ecuador is willing to make exceptions and give them a letter of identification which they will only have to renew every three months.

Should the embassy refuse to allow someone access, they will not be providing a reason why. It says that they reserve the right to decline or cancel any authorization at any time, even for those who have been previously authorized as a frequent visitor.

DNA Tests Prove Elizabeth Warren Only Has 1/1024th Indian Heritage and Is a Fraud Liberal Media Reports the Opposite "IndyWatch Feed"

Who are you going to believe?

The Boston Globe later issued a correction to their initial report The DNA test revealed that Elizabeth Warren is not 1/512 Native American, shes 1/1,024. Thats 0.0009765625.

Warren actually has less Indian in her bloodline than most Caucasian Americans.

But that hasnt stopped Warren from promoting this lie over the years.
Heres a memorable flashback
Watch Elizabeth Warren lied in 2012 about her parents eloping because her mother was Cherokee.
Her mother was AT MOST 1/512th Native American Hardly a reason to elope!

Despite being caught as a fraud with the release of these dubious test results the liberal Fake News media is reporting the opposite.

As you read these headlines remember that this woman has less Native American than 123,000,000 white Americans and lied about it for years and IS STILL lying about it today.
