London Muslim Mayor Sadiq Khan Compares Trump to ISIS "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Boy is this guy confused.
After a number of ISIS attacks in England this year causing multiple deaths Londons Muslim Mayor Sadiq Khan compared Donald Trump to ISIS this weekend.

This guy.

The Sun reported:

LONDON Mayor Sadiq Khan has accused President Donald Trump of using ISIS-style language by calling for a total shutdown of US borders to Muslims.

Speaking at the Labour party conference in Brighton, Khan also claimed hed become a reluctant participant in the continuing spat between himself and the outspoken Republican.

Khan is clearly outraged by the Presidents call for a ban on Muslims even though its reported he would make an exception for the Mayor.

He told a Guardian Live event :My view was firstly Im not exceptional and secondly Think about what you are saying. Because what you are saying is not dissimilar to what Daesh or so-called IS says.

They say that there is a clash of civilisations, it is not possible to be a Muslim and a westerner, and the west hates us. And you are inadvertently playing their game, you are helping them.

He said Trumps ban on travellers gave the wrong impression of the religion.

Sadiq said Trumps ban gave the wrong impression of Islam.
But what about the Islamist killers, Mr. Khan?


A devout Muslim slaughtered several pedestria...

Chewbacca Lives on Endor, You Must Acquit! "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

What Trump wants to talk about:

1. Black sports professionals who won't stand during the national anthem.

What Trump doesn't want to talk about:

1. Bob Mueller asking his staff for all kinds of documents.

2. His failure to get funding for his border wall.

3. His failure to repeal Obamacare.

4. His preferred candidate in the Alabama special election losing on Tuesday.

5. The fact that Puerto Rico has no power and may have no power for months and months.

I'd also like to point out that Trump doesn't want to talk about why some black athletes aren't standing for the national anthem. He's says it's lack of gratitude. He says it's disrespect. He doesn't say it's because a lot of police officers have gotten away with murder.

And, now, as of today, athletes of all colors aren't standing because they're protesting Trump and his racism and his disrespect.

He's a sick person, but his calculation isn't irrational. He's forcing a conversation on us where he unfortunately has the opportunity to benefit politically.

Trump thinks this is a win for him and so do some of his most influential supporters:

It could be that he's taken things too far now and miscalculated. That remains to be seen. But he can't distract Bob Mueller. He can't fake legislative victories that aren't forthcoming. Puerto Rico isn't going to fix itself. If Luther Strange loses on Tuesday, he's still going to look weak and stupid.

So, it's pretty clear that his plan is to continue to racially polarize the electorate while hiding behind the flag. It won't work forever. Hopefully, it has already stopped working.

Casual Observation "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

While it's not the tactic I would advise, I'd like to remind everyone that people aren't kneeling during the national anthem because they don't like the singing or the lyrics. They aren't doing it because they think our flag is ugly. Their point is not to show disrespect or disapproval of either. They're kneeling to draw attention to the fact that people of color get shot or choked or tased to death by the police at an alarming rate in this country and that the shooters and chokers are almost never found to have committed a sanctionable offense, let alone a crime.

So, when the president says that the protesters are sons of bitches who should be fired for their disloyalty, that's not just a calculated way to benefit politically, it's primarily a way to avoid acknowledging the whole point.

That it is so easy to divert attention from the whole point and to benefit politically while doing so is a good argument against the protest tactic, and I might offer some alternatives that would be more effective. But I'd never dismiss the sentiment behind it. I'd never call someone a son of a bitch because they think it's wrong that so many young men of color are losing their lives without any form of due process, or because he or she is outraged that it's nearly impossible for a cop to be punished or prosecuted for taking a life no matter how strong the evidence is against them.

This isn't really even a protest against the police. Not really. It's only a protest against the police if the police collectively take the attitude that killing black and brown people with near impunity is not only a solid policy but their God-given right. If they believe bad shootings and wrongful deaths are no big deal, then obviously the kneeling becomes a protest against the police in general. But that's their choice to react that way and turn the people against them. If they want to respond to people begging for black lives to matter by insisting that all this criticism is a way of arguing the blue lives don't, then they've brought broad moral condemnation on themselves. No one forced them to misunderstand or pretend to misunderstand, or to take sides against the people who criticize the bad cops in their ranks.

The president is a born asshole seeking to lead every born asshole in the country. If you take his side on this, you're joining a truly deplorable army. You can disagree with the tactic of kneeling during the anthem without joining an army of born assholes.

Navy SEAL Rob ONeill Trolls Kaepernick: Kaepernick, Where Are You Playing Today? (VIDEO) "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

NFL player protests exploded Sunday after President Trump lashed out at the players for kneeling during the national anthem on Friday while at a campaign rally for Senator Luther Strange (R-AL).

These NFL players protesting are disrespecting our Veterans who fought and bled for this country.

Patriotic Americans were infuriated when former Army Ranger Alejandro Villanueva was the ONLY Steeler to come out for the National Anthem on Sunday. He stood in the tunnel while the rest of the team hid in the locker room like disrespectful cowards.

Navy SEAL Rob ONeill is the man who killed Osama Bin Laden and wrote the book The Operator.

ONeill trolled the hell outta Colin Kaepernick during his Fox News appearance Sunday and it was glorious.

ONeill was asked how he felt about NFL players taking a knee during the nation anthem.

As a veteran, its insulting, ONeill began.

He went on to say that there are other ways to protest rather than during the national anthem.

ONeill then zinged Colin Kaepernick for being jobless after orchestrating the protests.

Colin Kaepernick. Wheres he playing today? Oh thats right, he doesnt have a job. OUCH!

There Is No Rehabilitating the Vietnam War "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Published on

There is enormous pressure and a lot of money working to rehabilitate Vietnam, to put the guilt and the shame of it behind us. But it was precisely the guilt of the people, their shame at what was being done in their name, and their courage to denounce it that made it impossible for their government to carry out the savagery any longer.

The Vietnam War, writes Freeman, must be remembered and condemned for the debacle it actually was. (Image: vietnamfulldisclosure.org)

On cynicism "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

On cynicism:

When cynicism becomes the default language, playfulness and invention become impossible. Cynicism scours through a culture like bleach, wiping out millions of small, seedling ideas. Cynicism means your automatic answer becomes No. Cynicism means you presume everything will end in disappointment.

And this is, ultimately, why anyone becomes cynical. Because they are scared of disappointment. Because they are scared someone will take advantage of them. Because they are fearful their innocence will be used against them that when they run around gleefully trying to cram the whole world in their mouth, someone will try to poison them.

Cynicism is, ultimately, fear. Cynicism makes contact with your skin, and a thick black carapace begins to grow like insect armor. This armor will protect your heart, from disappointment but it leaves you almost unable to walk. You cannot dance in this armor. Cynicism keeps you pinned to the spot, in the same posture, forever.

NoTrump.NoKKK.NoFascistUSA "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"




The American Music Awards aren't supposed to be "political," so when Green Day tweaked the words on their new song, "Bang Bang," adding "No Trump, No KKK, No Fascist USA," it may have caught some viewers by surprise. But not iron worker, union organizer and Wisconsin Green Day fan Randy Bryce. "As usual, Billy Joe Armstrong was just a little ahead of his time," he told us when we talked about the upcoming Blue America Green Day guitar giveaway. "I love bands that express their angst in music."

In tribute to Billie's spirit, I took a sleek black stratocaster guitar (a Fender Squire Bullet Strat) that Green Day autographed for me while I was president of their label and decided to use it to raise some campaign funds for Randy's campaign for the congressional seat Paul Ryan is operating out of. Here's a photo of the guitar, of Randy holding the guitar.




Everyone who contributes here-- any amount-- to Randy Bryce's campaign has an equal chance to get the "thank you" guitar from Blue America. We'll pick one person at random. If you give $1,000 you get a chance to get the guitar. If you give $10 you get the same chance to get the guitar. (Yes, we're Democrats, not Republicans; that's how we roll. In fact, if you don't have the cash to give and you want the guitar, just send a note to us at Blue America, P.O. Box 27201. Los Angeles, CA 90027 and you'll have the same chance as everyone else.)

Puerto Rico Officials Praise Trump Admin for Response to Hurricane Maria "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Puerto Rico officials are praising the proactive response by President Donald Trump and the federal government to the catastrophic damage wrought by Hurricane Maria.

Trump spoke on Thursday with the governors of Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands. Earlier in the week Trump signed official disaster declarations for the two U.S. territories, according to The Hill.

The AP via Politico reported on Saturday:

Large amounts of federal aid began moving into Puerto Rico on Saturday, welcomed by local officials who praised the Trump administrations response but called for the emergency loosening of rules long blamed for condemning the U.S. territory to second-class status (The Jones Act).

(Gov. Ricardo) Rossello and other officials praised the federal government for planning its response in detail before the storm hit, a contrast with what Puerto Rico has long seen as the neglect of 3.4 million Americans living in a territory without a vote in Congress or the electoral college.

This is the first time we get this type of federal coordination, said Resident Commission Jenniffer Gonzalez, Puerto Ricos non-voting representative in Washington.

The opening of the islands main port in the capital allowed 11 ships to bring in 1.6 million gallons of water, 23,000 cots, dozens of generators and food. Dozens more shipments are expected in upcoming days.

The federal aid effort is racing to stem a growing humanitarian crisis in towns left without fresh water, fuel, electricity or phone service. Officials with the Federal Emergency Management Agency, which is in charge of the relief effort, said they would take satellite phones to all of Puerto Ricos towns and cities, more than half of which were cut off following Marias devastating crossing of Puerto Rico on Wednesday.

Former journalist Cate Long summed up the response, On the ground or in transit to Puerto Rico FEMA, US DOD, US DOE, US National Guard, US Coast Guard, Marines, 3 state national guards.

NFL player protests exploded Sunday after President Trump lashed out at the players for kneeling during the national anthem on Friday while at a campaign rally for Senator Luther Strange (R-AL).

The crowd went wild after Trump said, Wouldnt you love to see one of the NFL owners, when someone disrespects our flag, to say get that son of b*tch off the field right now! Out! Hes fired! Hes fired!

The crowd erupted into cheers and started chanting, USA! USA! USA!

At least a dozen NFL players knelt during the anthem before the London game Sunday between the Baltimore Ravens and Jacksonville Jaguars.

They did this in London.

These same players who knelt during the national anthem stood for the British anthem God Save the Queen. Unreal.

Former Army Ranger is Only Steelers Player to Stand For National Anthem His Entire Team Hid in the Locker Room (VIDEO) "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Former Army Ranger Alejandro Villanueva was the ONLY Steeler to come out for the National Anthem on Sunday. He stood in the tunnel while the rest of the team hid in the locker room like disrespectful cowards.

Villanueva stood with his hand over his heart and sang along with pride during the National Anthem.

The 28-year-old former Army Ranger is a bronze star recipient and served three tours in Afghanistan.

Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said he noticed Villanueva during a preseason game because of the way he stood during the National Anthem, according to an article in NFL.com.

Imagine being Villanueva. He fought for this country and then has to play side by side with teammates who blatantly disrespect his service and the flag.

Steelers coach Mike Tomlin told CBS Sports sideline reporter Jamie Erdahl why his team will remain in the locker room during the National Anthem, via NFL.com:

You know, these are very divisive times for our country and for us as a football team its about us remaining solid. Were not going to be divided by anything said by anyone. [I told our players] if you feel the need to do anything Im going to be supportive of that as Americans you have that right.

Physical Cowards Like Seor Trumpanzee Often Promote Violence And Fascism "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"




Hillary couldn't have picked a more sycophantic interviewer than Joy Reid for a taped, edited appearance of MSNBC Saturday morning. Nonetheless, there was something the two of them got to that even Hillary's detractors would whole-heartedly agree with: Trump is worse than she, or almost any of us, imaged he would be as president. Although, who really even imagined he would be president until Putin's agents managed to flip a few precincts in Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and Michigan?

In the midst of discussing her "it's all about me, me, me, me, me" book, Reid asked her if Clinton thought the Trump era was even worse than she expected it to be. "I really had such deep doubts about his preparation, his temperament, his character, his experience, but he's been even worse than I thought he would be," said the woman who beat him 65,853,516 (48.2%) to 62,984,825 (46.1%). "I thought, and I tried in my concession speech to make clear that we should all give him the space to be president for every American. That's what we want from our presidents, regardless of our partisan differences, we want to feel like the person in the oval office really cares about and is looking after everybody. And that just hasn't turned out to be the case, starting with our inauguration, which is how I opened the book talking about how excruciating it was to go and what a missed opportunity for him because all he did was reinforce the dark, divisive image of America that he'd been feeding to his supporters."

Michigan Governor Unleashes Citizens United on Steroids "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Less than six hours after its passage by the Republican-controlled state legislature, Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder signed into law this week a measure that, effective immediately, allows candidates to raise unlimited sums of money for super PACs, which can then promptly spend that money supporting those candidatesor attacking their rivals.

It also allows consultants to simultaneously work for a campaign and a super PAC at the same time, making a joke of the supposed independence of the two groups.

Its a brazen move for Snyder, who is term-limited out of office in 2018, to so fully embrace the post-Citizens United world dominated by big-money super PACs. Watchdogs warn that the lawwhich they have described as Citizens United on steroids effectively creates an end-run around the states limits on campaign contributions and further obliterates the already-thin line that is supposed to maintain super PAC independence from candidates. That opens the door for the states wealthy donors to wield even more influence over the political system.

The move is of a piece with a long-running Republican strategy, rarely matched effectively by Democrats, to tilt the political playing field in a partisan direction. On top of sophisticated gerrymandering, right-to-work laws have smashed the electoral power of unions in states where theyve been enacted, such as Michigan and Wisconsin, which have tilted right as organized labor has been suppressed. Add to that voter suppression laws targeting minorities, college students, and anybody else suspected of voting Democratic, and Republicans are able to create a field in which majority support of an agenda is not necessarily required.

By winning at the state level and enacting laws that benefit the party in future elections, state GOP parties have been able to put once blue states in play, paving the way for Trumps surprise victory in November.

Opening the campaign finance floodgates is part of that agenda. Gov. Snyder rode in to Lansing on the white horse of transparency but will leave cloaked in secrecy, driving a hearse carrying our democracy, Lonnie Scott, executive director of Progress Michigan, said in a statement on Wednesday. Today it has been made clear that Gov. Snyder is doing everything he can to cement his legacy as one of the least transparent and most spineless governors Michigan...

Wall Street might be shocked to learn it is helping bankroll the anti-Trump resistance movement thats aggressively fighting policies it favors including corporate tax cuts and the repeal of Obama-era banking and health-care regulations.

Inflection Point: 

More shocking is the massive spying operation directed by Obama and covered up by a complicit CNN, WaPo and the dying mainstream media. See; "Obama's Watergate" and here

The Obama administrations massive shakedown of Big Banks over the mortgage crisis included unprecedented back-door funding for dozens of Democratic activist groups who were not even victims of the crisis.

At least three liberal nonprofit organizations the Justice Department approved to receive funds from multibillion-dollar mortgage settlements were instrumental in killing the ObamaCare repeal bill and are now lobbying against GOP tax reform, as well as efforts to rein in illegal immigration.
An estimated $640 million has been diverted into what critics say is an improper, if not unconstitutional, slush fund fed from government settlements with JPMorgan Chase and Co., Citigroup Inc. and Bank of America Corp., according to congressional sources.

The payola is potentially earmarked for third-party interest groups approved by the Justice Department and HUD without requiring any proof of how the funds will be spent. Many of the recipients so far are radical leftist organizations who solicited the settlement cash from the administration even though they were not parties to the lawsuits, records show.

During the Obama administration, groups committed to revolutionary social change sent proposals and met with high-level HUD and Justice Department officials to try to get their pieces of the settlement pie, Cause of Action Institute vice president Julie Smith told The Post.

Upcoming Execution Of Keith Leroy Tharpe Illustrates Legacy Of Lynching In US "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Keith Leroy Tharpe is scheduled for execution on September 26 for shooting Jaquelin Freeman, the sister-in-law of his estranged wife. Earlier this month, Tharpes legal defense team sought to have his execution halted under the claim of strong racial bias by a white juror, Barney Gattie.

United States District Court Judge Ashley Royal rejected the claims of racial bias, stating there is absolutely no indication that Gattie, or anyone else, brought up race during the jury deliberations. However, details of racism, which led to Tharpes sentencing, make it clear Georgia has a lynching scheduled on its books.

Tharpe is set to be the second person Georgia has executed in 2017. He has sat on death row since 1990 after committing horrible crimes against his estranged wife and sister-in-law, including the murder of his sister-in-law, in retaliation for his wife leaving him.

On the morning of September 25, 1990, Tharpe disobeyed court orders to stay away from his wife and committed the ruthless murder. Just 100 days later his capital trial started an uncommonly short amount of time and he was unanimously sentenced to death by a jury.

The ever-present racial disparities within the death penalty become hyper-visible in Tharpes case. During the appeals process, Tharpes legal defense team interviewed jurors from the trial, and court filings from the interviews reveal that Gattie, who is now deceased, stated he voted for Tharpes death because he was black.

After studying the Bible, I have wondered if black people even have souls, Gattie said.

Integration started in Genesis, Gattie also said. I think they were wrong. For example, look at O.J. Simpson. That white woman wouldnt have been killed if she hadnt have married that black man.

Earlier in his statements, Gattie told attorneys, In my experience I have observed that there are two types of black people: black folks and niggers. He lambasted Tharpe as an example for other Black people to see and fear.

As it was, because I knew the victim and her husbands family and knew them all to be good black folks, I felt Tharpe, who wasnt in the good black folks category in my book, should get the electric chair [] Some of the jurors voted for death because they felt that Tharpe should be an example to other blacks who kill blacks [] The others wanted blacks to know they werent going to get away with killing each other.

In light of the clear racial bias in these comments, Tharpes lawyers have tried to have attempted to have this execu...

TRUMP'S SPORTS ATTACKS: RACIST, AND ALSO EASIER THAN HEALTHCARE AND NORTH KOREA "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Obviously, President Trump is attacking anti-racist pro athletes because he's a bigoted white guy. But there's more going on than that. There's also this:



Healthcare is hard -- unless you're going to go to single payer, which won't happen under Republicans, you're going to have a complicated system with many moving parts, and if you alter one of those parts, others will function very differently, probably to the detriment of million of Americans. Trump, as president, should have mastered all those details in order to confront the problems with our healthcare system. He never mastered the details and he never will, and he understands that now. He knows he can't just wave a wand and give everybody great healthcare for less money, or even fool people into believing that that's what they're getting. He has to deal with legislators, who get bogged down in the deep muddy of policy details. That's no fun.

North Korea isn't any easier -- sure, it's nice to say you'll kick "Rocket Man's" ass, but the generals know that it's a problem with no good solutions, so they've at least prevented Trump from just ordering a nuclear strike on Pyongyang.

So, in many policy areas, Trump's instincts are being constrained. But no force in Washington is going to constrain Trump if he wants to declare that the NFL should fire all the protesting players. On this, he can just be the angry guy at the end of the bar. That's what he enjoys the most. It's why, even now, he likes making campaign speeches much more than being president.

You can tell that Trump is motivated by more than just racism when he talks about sports because he also said this in his Alabama speech Friday night:
Regarding his nostalgia for the dangerous hits that college and pro football have been trying to take out of the game, Trump said: Today if you hit too hard15 yards! Throw him out of the game! They had that last week. I watched for a couple of minutes. Two guys, just really, beautiful tackle. Boom, 15 yards! The referee gets on televisionhis wife is sitting at home, shes so proud of him.

Mueller Investigation Desperate As More Information About Obamas Illegal Spying Is Uncovered "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Guest post by Joe Hoft

The Mueller Investigation is Getting Desperate to Find A Crime, Any Crime.

As more information comes out about the illegal spying by the Obama Administration, Mueller is under more and more pressure to find or make up a crime related to President Trump.

It is time to deal with the corruption and criminal conduct in the Department of Justice, Criminal Intelligence Agency, Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and shut down the criminal and corrupt Mueller investigation.

Americans during the election demanded the future President deal with the corruption and criminal conduct in Washington DC. President Trumps rally participants chanted : Drain the Swamp at nearly every rally.

and Lock Her Up

Its amazing that the most important and emotional demands that Americans wanted from this President when he was campaigning were captured in these two slogans!

All Americans knew that Hillary Clinton was given a pass by the MSM, FBI and DOJ for receiving money for providing uranium to Russia.  She was guilty of mishandling emails and destroying evidence related to her illegal email account.  And now we know that President Obama helped her campaign by spying on the Trump team during the election and after his election win.  Obamas years in office boiled over with corruption.

The deceased officers were veterans and fathers: From top left clockwise, Brent Thompson, Patrick Zamarripa, Michael Krol, Lorne Ahrens and Michael J. Smith.

The National Football League refused to allow Dallas Cowboys players to honor the slain officers with helmet decals.

Sports Day reported:

The Arm in Arm decal the Cowboys unveiled to open training camp wont be on their helmets when the club opens its preseason schedule Saturday at the Los Angeles Rams.

The Cowboys heard back from the NFL on Wednesday and were told by league officials they cant wear the decal during any preseason or regular-season games, executive vice president Stephen Jones said. Jones added that the Cowboys can wear the decal during training camp practices.

Everyone has to be uniform with the league and the other 31 teams, Jones said after practice Wednesday. We respect their decision.

As rookie catcher Bruce Maxwell, who earlier in the day profanely bashed President Trump on Instagram, became the first major-league player to kneel during the national anthem on Saturday before Oaklands 1-0 win at the Coliseum.

My decision had been coming for a long time, Maxwell said, citing his own experiences with racism while growing up in Huntsville, Ala., which is where Trump on Friday made disparaging comments about NFL players who choose to kneel for the anthem. The only way we can come together is by informing. To single out NFL players for doing this isnt something we should be doing I felt it should be a little more broad.

Syrian Widows in Jordan Take Charge of Their New Lives "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Amal al-Mugdad was always devout, but as the Syrian conflict engulfed her hometown of Deraa, her prayers grew increasingly desperate. Rising daily before dawn, the slight young woman unrolled her prayer mat, her ears strained for the sound of bullets. On her knees in the dark, she begged for peace in her country and mercy for her people. By daylight, though, there were few signs that Allah had heard her plea. Regime aircraft rattled against the sky. Neighborhood streets grew inscrutable, blocked by shifting checkpoints and sprawling rubble.

Fear whittled Amals world. By 2012, her universe encompassed only three points: her sons, Khalid and Maan, then ages two years and six months, respectively; and her 24-year-old husband, Mahmood. It was her husband the man she married at 19, whom she privately called Hamoodi that worried her the most. This was a conflict with a particular appetite for young, able-bodied men, targeting them with checkpoints and home raids. By 2015, an estimated 65,000 people were disappeared by the regime, forced to enlist in President Bashar al-Assads army or vanished into the underworld of government prisons. Others were felled by snipers, for reasons never given.

Amals nightmare arrived on a sunny winters day. It was December 19, 2012. Mahmood stepped out to call Amals cousin to lunch. A soldier shot him through the heart. I had my boys in my arms, Amal recalled, five years later. I dont remember what I did with them. She went on: Then I was in the street. I saw his body. He looked like he was sleeping. I couldnt stop screaming. She lunged at the soldier, her brother holding her back. I cried, Why, why him? There was no reply.

They buried Mahmoud immediately. Amal was taken, in shock, to a nearby uncle. A few weeks later, her relatives persuaded her to flee, rousing Amal with the one message that could still reach her: It would be safer for her boys, outside Syria. On foot, she followed the stream of refugees south, toward the porous Jordanian border. Maan, drenched in winter rain, developed a wrenching cough. He kept crying and I was crying too, calling out, My God, my God. I didnt know what to do, Amal told me. As the sounds of war grew distant, Amal was stirred by a new fear: how would she, a woman, shoulder the burden of her fledgling family alone?

After He's Humiliated Tuesday, Trump Will Never Want To Set Foot In Alabama Again "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"




The Women For Trump PAC is just the latest MAGA group to split from Seor Trumpanzee and embrace Roy Moore's overt fascism. Bretibart reported that "Women Vote Trump, the largest female-run PAC to support Donald Trumps presidential campaign, announced their endorsement of Judge Roy Moore for U.S. Senate on Friday, describing him as the only candidate who will stand up to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell... 'At a time when Mitch McConnell and the DC swamp have been obstructionists to the Presidents agenda, this election is about who is going to stand up to Mitch McConnell,' the statement continued. 'There is only one candidate who will do that, Judge Roy Moore.' Moores opponent, U.S. Senator Luther Strange, remains the choice of Mitch McConnell and the Republican establishment. Strange also received the endorsement of Trump himself, much to the frustration of many Trump supporters. In recent weeks, the Senate Leadership Fund, a PAC affiliated with McConnell, has flooded the state with a series of false attack ads against Moore. During a debate between the two candidates on Thursday evening, Strange spent much of his time touting what he called his 'close, personal friendship' with the President and referred 28 times to the fact that Trump endorsed him over Moore. A poll released Friday shows Moore with an eight-point lead over Strange."

Breitbart also reported that Seor Trumpanzee was doing his best at the Huntsville rally Friday "to characterize Sen. Luther Strange (R-AL) as a Washington outsider. 'Hes been in Washington for even less time than me. So he doesnt know all these people hes supposed to know,' Trump said. However, the characterization did not comport with reality. While Trump has lived in Washington, D.C. since January, Strange has spent eight years as a Washington, D.C. lobbyist for an Alabama-based gas utility company." In fact, every Bretibart top story but one was related to the Alabama Senate primary runoff coming on Tuesday. The biggest one of all was the silliest and most disparaging of Trumpanzee: Trump Claims Luther Strange Does Not Know...

Pretty Much What I Expected "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

I think one thing we were all expecting from a Trump administration is exactly what we are getting now: despite nuclear war fears and hurricanes and earthquakes and health care and the budget, the number one item on all the news sites is the Twitter fight between Trump and LeBron James.

James: Going to White House was a great honor until you showed up!

This particular fight is touchy because of the racial structure of the NBA and NFL, in which mostly white owners and fans depend on the heroics of mostly black athletes.  This is why the NFL ownership has been so careful not to say anything substantive about Star Spangled Banner protests and the like, and why the NBA bounced a white owner for making racist comments to a hot mic a few years ago: the last thing they want is a racial blow-up. And here comes Trump with his bull in a China shop routine.

The View From the End of the American Empire "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

In his United Nations General Assembly speech last week, President Donald Trump loudly stated his intention to effectively dismantle the world order that the United States painstakingly built over the past century. Trump lauded nationalism before the assembled delegates at the same global institution that the U.S. helped create: I will always put America first just like you, the leaders of your countries, should put your countries first, he thundered. There can be no substitute for strong, sovereign, independent nations.

Trumps speech was a remarkable departure from decades of U.S. policy aimed at creating an integrated post-nationalist world under its own leadership. At the end of the Second World War, the U.S. emerged for the first time in its history as a true superpower: a country able to reach out beyond its borders and reshape the nature of global politics. Most people alive today were born into a world whose institutions, economic systems, legal rules, and political boundaries have all been shaped to some degree by American influence. While the U.S. has never been comfortable with embracing its identity preferring to refer to itself with such euphemisms as the indispensable nation a sober accounting of Americas influence on world affairs can only arrive at the designation of an empire.

Through a network of nearly 800 military bases located in 70 countries around the globe, in addition to an array of trade deals and alliances, the U.S. has cemented its influence for decades across both Europe and Asia. American leaders helped impose a set of rules and norms that promoted free trade, democratic governance in theory, if not always in practice and a prohibition on changing borders militarily, using a mixture of force and suasion to sustain the systems that keep its hegemony intact. Meanwhile, although the U.S. generally eschewed direct colonialism, its promotion of global free trade helped open a door through which Americas preponderant economic strength would enter and dominate all the underdeveloped areas of the world, wrote the revisionist historian William Appleman Williams in his more-than-half-century-old classic, The Tragedy of American Diplomacy.

That strategy of non-colonial imperial expansion, as Williams called it, became the basis for U.S. foreign policy over the past century. For American elites, such a policy has provided remarkable benefits, even if the resulting largesse has not always trickled down to the rest of the country. Thanks to its status as the worlds only superpower, the U.S. today enjoys the exorbitant privilege of having its dollar serve as the worlds reserve currency, while U.S. leaders dominate the agenda of international institutions promoting governance and trade. With the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1990 and the successful creation of a global military allian...

Poet Aja Monet: White Folks Have to Face Who Trump Is "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

The Brooklyn-born Cuban-Jamaican poet Aja Monet has emerged as a powerful voice of struggle for justice against police violence and violence against women. Her poems also critique capitalism and men who make war. Monet spent time in Palestine and has become an outspoken critic of Israeli occupation. Aja Monets weapon is her poetry and spoken word. She has a new collection of her poetry that has just been published by Haymarket Books. It is called My Mother Was a Freedom Fighter.

On the Intercepted podcast, we talked to Aja Monet about the struggles of being a woman in modern society, racism, war, and Donald Trump. She said that Trump has not changed her or her work. Its no different, she said, adding, I think its different for a lot of white people. I think a lot a majority  felt like this country was progressive because it had a black president. And so I think people were really blind to whats actually going on in this country and whats always been going on. And so, for me, I think Trump is only a reflection of their quote-unquote worst, but theres even worse out there. And I think white folks have to face who Trump is and they need to face what he represents and what hes spewed to the world and the values that hes demonstrating that he believes are American. What follows is the transcript of the entire interview:


Jeremy Scahill: Aja Monet, welcome to Intercepted.

Aja Monet: Thank you. Thank you for having me.

JS: Theres a lot I want to ask you about, but I first wanted to go in on the title of your latest book, My Mother Was A Freedom Fighter. Maybe you could just explain where the inspiration for that title came from?

AM: So the title is from a poem that is called My Mother Was A Freedom Fighter, and the poem essentially covers what I feel is the story of the trajectory of women who have nurtured and who have had to take care of other people and raise society and raise cultures and raise civilizations. And we think about mothers in such a, like we say it in a very romantic way, like, Oh, my mother, I wouldnt be here without my mother, blah blah blah. But I dont think we talk about it very practically. Like, what women do and what specifically women who bear children and take care of children, or maybe not be able to bear children, but nurture and take care of other peoples children, they teach the values of society.

And so I feel like every woman...

Unacceptable that the US Dept. of Homeland Security Waited Over a Year to Notify Election Officials in 21 States that Russian Hackers Tried to Breach Systems "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

On September 22, California Secretary of State Padilla wrote that Today, my office was informed for the first time by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) that Russian cyber actors scanned Californias Internet-facing systems in 2016 It is completely unacceptable that it has taken DHS over a year to inform our office of Russian scanning of our systems, despite our repeated requests for information. The practice of withholding critical information from elections officials is a detriment to the security of our elections and our democracy. http://www.sos.ca.gov/administration/news-releases-and-advisories/2017-news-releases-and-advisories/secretary-state-alex-padilla-notified-dhs-unsuccessful-russian-attempt-target-2016-election/

Similarly, U.S. Sen. Mark R. Warner (D-VA), Vice Chairman of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, released the following statement after the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) notified election officials in 21 states that hackers targeted their systems in 2016:

Its unacceptable that it took almost a year after the election to notify states that their elections systems were targeted, but Im relieved that DHS has acted upon our numerous requests and is finally informing the top elections officials in all 21 affected states that Russian hackers tried to breach their systems in the run up to the 2016 election.

Vice Chairman Warner on DHS Notification to States of Attempted Election Hacking
Sep 22 2017

WASHINGTON U.S. Sen. Mark R. Warner (D-VA), Vice Chairman of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, released the following statement after the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) notified election officials in 21 states that hackers targeted their systems in 2016:

Its unacceptable that it took almost a year after the election to notify states that their elections systems were targeted, but Im relieved that DHS has acted upon our numerous requests and is finally informing the top elections officials in all 21 affected states that Russian hackers tried to breach their systems in the run up to the 2016 election.

We have to do better in the future. Our elections are the bedrock of our democracy, and DHS needs to notify states and localities in real-time when their systems are targeted. While I understand that DHS detects thousands of attempted cyber attacks daily, I expect the top election officials of each state to be made aware of all such attempted intrusions, successful or not, so that they can strengthen their defenses just as any ho...

Lay Down With Trump-- Get Up With Cooties... A Less Fancy Way Of Explaining Reputational Risk "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"


Friday evening, Eric Ebron, Detroit Lions tight end, tweeted a question: "Does anyone tell Trump to stick to politics, like they tell us to stick to sports?" Trump had been busy attacking Stephen Curry and Colin Kaepernick and the NFL. NFL Players Associations executive director, DeMaurice Smith responded that "This union will never back down when it comes to protecting the constitutional rights of our players as well as their safety as men who compete in a game that exposes them to great risks" and this morning, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell released a statement that rebuked Seor Trumpanzee: "The NFL and our players are at our best when we help create a sense of unity in our country and our culture. There is no better example than the amazing response from our clubs and players to the terrible natural disasters weve experienced over the last month. Divisive comments like these demonstrate an unfortunate lack of respect for the NFL, our great game and all of our players, and a failure to understand the overwhelming force for good our clubs and players represent in our communities." Trump petulantly cancelled an invitation to the White House for Stephen Curry who had already said he didn't want to go. Trump's assertion that it was a great honor to be invited to the White House was true-- until he moved in.

Who cares? Probably a lot of sports fans. But also a lot of White House staffers. That picture up top-- from The Onion-- depicts Sebastian Gorka being welcomed to the halfway house for fired Trump Regime members. But what about the left-behinds?

Michelle Malkin: The NFL Will Not Survive By Insulting and Trashing Its Own Customer Base (Video) "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Guest post by Joe Hoft

Michelle Malkin was on FOX News Judge Janine Show tonight and she scored a touchdown against the mainstream media, the socialist leaning Democrat Party and NFL players taking a knee during the national anthem.

Malkin said

As you point out, the numbers dont lie.  I wrote a column about it this week that includes the NFL.  Viewership is down since the beginning of the [opening] season by 13% . Were seeing drops in attendance.  Were seeing drops everywhere, in advertising as well and thats because theres no business enterprise that is ever going to survive by insulting and trashing its own customer base

 

The NFL allows players to disrespect American history and the American flag and as a result has made a game changing fumble.  The NFL needs new leadership and rules encouraging their players to respect American traditions and history.  NFL players are currently disrespecting the many Americans who gave their lives for this country.

NFL fans are predominantly conservative.  They are hard working Americans, not the liberal base of socialist non-working Americans.  The NFL is making a big mistake by believing that conservative Americans are not their base and that conservatives do not have the economic power to shut them down.  If the NFL wants to continue debasing this country they can expect to continue to see their numbers and profits dwindle.

President Trump is right.  Fire NFL leadership and the players who disrespect our country while making millions.

How The Politics Of Healthcare Have Made Dean Heller Unelectable In Nevada "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"




Dean Heller is a squishy mainstreamish Republican senator from Nevada. He was appointed to the seat by Republican Governor Brian Sandoval in 2011 when corrupt Republican John Ensign was forced to resign. Before getting into politics, Heller was a stock broker. In 2012 he was challenged by a corrupt New Dem, Shelley Berkley and managed to beat her 457,656 (45.87%) to 446,080 (44.71%)-- an 11,576 vote margin (against an incredibly weak and unattractive candidate who many Democrats just couldn't persuade themselves to vote for).

This cycle, Heller is a dead dog. He has a Trumpist opponent, Danny Tarkanian and another crappy DSCC-backed conservaDem just like Berkley (totally unqualified Jacky Rosen) and a Berniecrat the DSCC is trying to derail, Jesse Sbaih. Sarah Palin has already endorsed Tarkanian and the most recent poll of Republican voters shows Heller losing the primary to Tarkanian 39-31%. There is no doubt that Bannon's whole Roy Moore neo-fascist support team will be showing up in Nevada to destroy Heller as soon as they've finished destroying Luther Strange in Alabama-- and teaching Trump a lesson about where he gets his marching orders.


Unlike Heller, Rand Paul stood up to Trump's bullying and bribes

The Guernsey Medieval Porpoise Burial "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Archaeologists working at a 14th-century hermitage on the island of Guernsey were startled to find a porpoise skeleton in a feature that looked at first like a human grave.

They told reporters that they had never seen anything like it, but that's just because they're sufficiently up on the weird side notes of British archaeology.


Porpoise bones have been found buried in several British sites dating to between the Neolithic and the late Middle Ages. The most famous example is on St. Ninian's Isle in the Shetlands, where a porpoise jaw was found in the so-called St. Ninian's Treasure unearthed in 1958; some of the silver pieces from this treasure are above.

LEAK: Trump, GOP Leaders to Cut Top Tax Rate to 35 Percent "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

President Trump and GOP leaders are cutting the top tax rate from 39.6% to 35%, according to details leaked to Axios.

This will help small businesses as well because they pay the same tax rates as individuals. 35% is still too high, but its a start.

President Trump promised tax cuts on the campaign trail and hes making good on that promise.

Axios reported the details according the three sources with knowledge of the plan:

  • Top individual tax rate cut from 39.6 to 35. The current seven income tax brackets collapsed to three, as part of simplification. (Axios hasnt obtained the other two rates.)
  • Axios can confirm that the Big Six agreed to cut the corporate tax rate from 35 percent to 20 percent. That key detail leaked last night to the Washington Post. (Trump has said he wants the corporate rate to be 15 percent.)
  • The Big Six framework is also expected to include guardrails to prevent wealthy people from artificially lowering their income taxes by rearranging their affairs to get taxed at the small business rate.
  • We can confirm, too, WashPos reporting that Republicans plan to double the standard deduction a boost for the middle class and a key component of simplification.

President Trump is expected to unveil this plan at a speech in Indiana on Wednesday.

The Democrats are reportedly pushing back on tax reform because they say the tax cuts are a break for the wealthiest Americans.

According to Axios, there are six Republican leaders working on the tax reform bill with President Trump and they are referred to as the Big Six:

The Big Six are House Speaker Paul Ryan, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, Treasury secretary Steven Mnuchin, White House economic adviser Gary Cohn, a...

Hillary SLAMS White Women Who Voted For Trump: Why Are They Publicly Disrespecting Themselves? (VIDEO) "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Hillary Clinton attacked white women in a Saturday morning interview with MSNBCs JoyAnn Reid as she continued to blame sexism and misogyny for her crushing election loss.

Hillary was wringing her hands over the fact that the majority of white women voted for Trump even though he said disrespectful things about females in the Billy Bush tape.

Hint: WE DIDNT CARE.

When I see women, and look, its predominantly white women, lets just be clear about that. I won women, I lost white women although I got more white womens votes than president Obama did in 2012 so this is an ongoing challenge, Hillary said.

But when I see women doing that, I think why are they publicly disrespecting themselves?, Hillary continued.

Of course Hillary has zero self awareness as her own husband is a disgusting pervert who has been accused of alleged rape and sexual assault by many different women over the years.

Furthermore, women simply didnt care about what Trump said on a hot mic over 10 years ago in private. We care about border security, jobs, lower taxes and strong leadership. Women want to feel safe. Hillary simply didnt offer that as she constantly praised open borders and Islam.

Hillary Clinton demonized white people during her entire campaign. In fact, she routinely tweeted in Spanish and neglected the white voters altogether.

Truthfully, women of all ethnic backgrounds rejected Hillary for being a corrupt, lying politician. America is sick of the Clintons. Its that simple.

Berkeley Confirms Free Speech Week is Cancelled Contrary to Other Reports "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

UC Berkeley has confirmed that Free Speech Week is no longer going to happen in any formal capacity whatsoever, this news comes as confirmation for the Gateway Pundits reporting on the story from two days ago.

The assistant vice chancellor of public affairs for Berkeley, Dan Mogulof, stated that representatives for the Berkeley Patriot confirmed that ALL of the previously scheduled events for Free Speech Week have been canceled.

Mogulof commented:

It is extremely unfortunate that this announcement was made at the last minute, even as the University was in the process of spending significant sums of money and preparing for substantial disruption of campus life in order to provide the needed security for these events.

This last minute change of plans was EXACTLY what the Gateway Pundit reported would occur and exactly what Lucian Wintrich explained via live stream just two days ago.

Mogulof also added:

Claims that this is somehow the outcome desired by the campus are without basis in fact . . . The University was prepared to do whatever was necessary to support the First Amendment rights of the student organization.

The DCCC Fully Embraced A More Conservative Democratic Party-- Partners With The Blue Dogs "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"


Earlier today we compared the worst of the Republicans to the worst of the Democrats-- and came to the conclusion that the worst Republicans are worse than the worst Democrats. But that doesn't make the worst Democrats-- the New Dems and Blue Dogs from the Republican wing of the Democratic Party-- any less repellent than there records show them to be.

A couple of words before about the Republican wing of the Democratic Party first. The Blue Dogs and the New Dems are actual organizations, with members dues, admission processes, charters, officers, etc. They are not some words to use to describe non-members. And although Beltway goofballs tare always saying that the New Dems aren't as bad-- as in extreme right-- as the Blue Dogs, the fact of the matter is that almost every Blue Dog is also a New Dem. The worst Blue Dogs-- no matter how you define "worst"-- from Kirsten Sinema (AZ), Josh Gottheimer (NJ), Jim Costa (CA), and Stephanie Murphy (FL) to Jim Cooper (TN), Kurt Schrader (OR), Charlie Crist (FL) and Lou Correa (CA)-- are also New Dems. Generally speaking the new Dems are first and foremost a pack of corrupt conservatives who use the organization to launder special interest money into their careers. The New Dem leadership includes money-hungry crooks Jim Times (CT), Derek Kilmer (WA), Terri Sewell (AL), Kathleen Rice (NY), Ron Kind (WI), Scott Peters (CA) and Suzan DelBene (WA). Wassermann Schultz is also a member. And the former New Dem chairman, Joe Crowley, the most corrupt Democrat in the House, is now in line to tale over the Democratic congressional leadership.

Since Rahm, a major New Dem, was head of the DCCC, New Dems have always been favored in recruitment and campaign funding. Now, under "ex"-Blue Dog Steve Israel protg, Ben Ray Lujan, the DCCC is openly recruiting and funding Blue Dogs. They always did it, but now they're publicly celebrating that they're doing it. Keep in mind that inside the Beltway politicians and thei...

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell fired back at President Trump on Saturday for encouraging league owners to remove players who take a knee during the national anthem, saying Trumps divisive comments show an unfortunate lack of respect for the NFL.

President Trump then revoked Golden States Stephen Currys invitation to the White House on Saturday morning causing a chain reaction of fury from liberals and other athletes.

The great basketball player Curry has expressed concerns about going to the White House since winning the NBA Championship.

Killing: The American Way "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

SEP 22, 2017

A napalm strike during the Vietnam War. (manhahi / CC BY 2.0)

One of the most hyped events of American television, The Vietnam War, has started on the PBS network. The directors are Ken Burns and Lynn Novick. Acclaimed for his documentaries on the Civil War, the Great Depression and the history of jazz, Burns says of his Vietnam films, They will inspire our country to begin to talk and think about the Vietnam War in an entirely new way.

In a society often bereft of historical memory and in thrall to the propaganda of its exceptionalism, Burns entirely new Vietnam War is presented as epic, historic work. Its lavish advertising campaign promotes its biggest backer, Bank of America, which in 1971 was burned down by students in Santa Barbara, California, as a symbol of the hated war in Vietnam.

Burns says he is grateful to the entire Bank of America family, which has long supported our countrys veterans. Bank of America was a corporate prop to an invasion that killed perhaps as many as 4 million Vietnamese and ravaged and poisoned a once-bountiful land. More than 58,000 American soldiers were killed, and around the same number are estimated to have taken their own lives.

I watched the first episode in New York. It leaves you in no doubt of its intentions right from the start. The narrator says the war was begun in good faith by decent people out of fateful misunderstandings, American overconfidence and Cold War misunderstandings.

The dishonesty of this statement is not surprising. The cynical fabrication of false flags that led to the invasion of Vietnam is a matter of recordthe Gulf of Tonkin incident in 1964, which Burns promotes as true, was just one. The lies litter a multitude of official documents, notably the Pentagon Papers, which the great whistleblower Daniel Ellsberg released in 1971.

There was no good faith. The faith was rotten and cancerous. For meas it must be for many Americansit is difficult to watch the films jumble of red peril maps, unexplained interviewees, ineptly cut archive and maudlin American battlefield sequences....

BOOM! Austin Police SLAM Violent Masked Antifa Terrorists to the Ground, Make Multiple Arrests (VIDEO) "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Hundreds of left-wing Antifa terrorists came out to protest a Dixie Freedom Rally in Austin, Texas, on Saturday.

The police werent putting up with the violence and slammed masked Antifa terrorists to the ground while making multiple arrests.




The Texas Confederate Militia decided to postpone their rally to a later date because they received violent threats from Antifa. Even though the rally was cancelled, Antifa protested anyway.

Antifa celebrated, claiming the white supremacists cancelled their rally due to the communitys response.

Why are Antifa protesters allowed to show up masked with weapons? If masks were banned and they were declared a domestic terrorist organization, the violence would virtually end.

The Antifa terrorists were screaming at the police officers calling them murderers and violent pigs. They were also calling the cops f*cking psychopaths! as they made arrests.

This is what we get after Obama demonized police officers for 8 years.

Watch these Austin State Troopers put Antifa in their place! Dont mess with Texas!

Obama is Funding the Anti-Trump Resistance Through Massive Mortgage Money Shakedown "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Obama is funding the anti-Trump resistance.

Never have we seen an ex-President undermine the next administration like this. There was never a peaceful transfer of power to the Trump administration. From the Russian collusion hoax to the landmines Obama set up, the Deep State is clawing to hang on to every ounce of power.

Paul Sperry of the New York Post breaks it down:

The Obama administrations massive shakedown of Big Banks over the mortgage crisis included unprecedented back-door funding for dozens of Democratic activist groups who were not even victims of the crisis.

At least three liberal nonprofit organizations the Justice Department approved to receive funds from multibillion-dollar mortgage settlements were instrumental in killing the ObamaCare repeal bill and are now lobbying against GOP tax reform, as well as efforts to rein in illegal immigration.

An estimated $640 million has been diverted into what critics say is an improper, if not unconstitutional, slush fund fed from government settlements with JPMorgan Chase and Co., Citigroup Inc. and Bank of America Corp., according to congressional sources.

Cause of Action Institute vice president Julie Smith told The Post that these radical left-wing groups committed to revolutionary social change sent proposals to and even met with high level HUD and DOJ officials in order to get their piece of the settlement pie.

Now these groups, being well-funded, are actively working against Trumps America first policies.

One of the groups that received $1.5 million from Obamas slush fund, La Raza, a radical brown power group lobbying for illegal immigration and open borders actively fought against the repeal of Obamacare. Why? Because 8 million hispanics would lose their healthcare coverage if ACA was repealed.

In July, La Raza held a huge rally in Arizona to protest the ACA repeal efforts, influencing John McCains decision to stop Trumps healthcare proposals which would ultimately repeal Obamacare.

National Urban League received $1.2 million from Obamas slush fund according to The Post. They are an African-America group lobbying to keep ACA because they claim 5 million African-Americans would lose their health...

Wisconsin-- The Center Of The Political Universe For 2018? "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"


I had the impression that even before Randy Bryce realized he could do the "impossible" and actually beat Paul Ryan in Wisconsin's southeast congressional district, he was willing to run and rally the base and turn out the vote in the district so that Democrats would go to the polls and vote in other elections, especially Tammy Baldwin's tough reelection campaign for U.S. Senate. One basic lesson the DCCC and DNC have steadfastly refused to learn-- or even understand-- is that when there are candidates down-ballot generating local enthusiasm and excitement, it helps candidates running hop-ballot (like for governor and senator). Bryce is a strategic thinker. The DCCC isn't; the people running it are just clueless money-grubbing careerists.

Yesterday, Randy Bryce was a featured speaker at the International Association of Machinists' annual statewide convention at the Manitowoc Holiday Inn, 2 counties up Lake Michigan from WI-01. Frank Schaeffer, who's beginning a new project to help flip Congress from reactionary red to progressive blue, was with Bryce filming and interviewing. The DCCC literally had no plans for contesting any seats in Wisconsin in the 2018 cycle (because their only lame metric for targeting was to look to see where Clinton beat Trump and contest those districts, something they will regret on November 7, 2018.) I'm not saying they shouldn't use that metric at all, but that they should also use another-- one that would have them contesting seats in districts-- like WI-01 and other Wisconsin districts-- where Hillary was the wrong candidate and lost to Trump but where primary day saw Bernie not just outpolling Hillary but also outpolling Trump. Example: if you want to win WI-01, you have to win the 4 key counties that contribute most of the votes: Racine, where Trump beat Hillary 49.8% to 45.4%, Kenosha, where Trump beat Hillary 47.5% to 47.2%, Walworth, where Trump beat Hilary 57.0% to 37.0% and Rock, where Hillary managed to eke out a 52.4% to 42.0% win.

IKEA Humans "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Samuel Biagetti in Jacobin, pondering the rootless modern liberal:

Jennifer and Jason are members of the upper middle class, living off their smarts and social connections rather than manual work. They live in the Sun Belt, in some newly gentrifying neighborhood of Queens, or in its equivalent in Montreal or Melbourne. They have college degrees and, even more importantly, college friends, which help to pull them up the slippery slope of middle-class employment. They are part of a scrambled white-collar workforce, drawn from all parts of the country and abroad, a lumpenbourgeoisie squeezing itself into selected wards of a few expensive cities. They follow trends in food, and music, and long-form television. Their politics are probably (but not definitely) liberal.
In the tradition of 19th-century social commentary, Biagetti considers Jennifer and Jason through the lens of their furniture, which is of course from IKEA:
Still, there is a good chance that Jennifer and Jason actually like their IKEA dressers, and prefer them to the old oak chest that their grandparents tried to foist on them. Indeed, the extraordinary popularity of IKEA testifies not only to its convenience but to its ability to appeal to the middle-class self-image. Jennifer and Jason are drawn to IKEA because it reflects who they are: they too are modern, movable, and interchangeable, their wants satisfiable in any neighborhood with a food co-op and a coffee shop. More fundamentally, Jennifer and Jason are untraceable, a composite material made from numberless scraps and pieces. They have a long catalog of home towns, and their accents are NPR neutral. They can probably rattle off the various nationalities in their family trees Dutch, Norwegian, Greek, and Jewish, maybe some Venezuelan or Honduran for a little color. From these backgrounds they retain no more than a humorous word or phrase, a recipe, or an Ellis Island anecdote, if that. They grew up amidst a scramble of white-collar professionals and went to college with a scramble of white-collar professionals kids. Their values are defined mainly by mass media, their tastes adorably quirky but never straying too far from their peers, and like the IKEA furniture that they buy in boxes, they too cut themselves into manageable, packaged pieces and market themselves online. They are probably spiritual but not religious. They have no pattern or model of life that bears any relation to the past before the internet. For all intents and purposes, they sprang up de novo in the modern city.
Some people would be tempted to call J and J cosmopolitan, but, says Biagetti, that doesn't really fit, because they actually live in a closed world and avoid interacting with people different from thems...

DOES TRUMP BELIEVE HIS OWN LIES? "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

President Trump traveled to Alabama last night to campaign on behalf of Luther Strange, who's trying to hold on to his Senate seat. Trump delivered an 85-minute speech that was occasionally about Strange, but often about Trump's usual hobbyhorses -- "Crooked Hillary" and so on. It's hard to say whether that will help Strange in his upcoming Republican runoff against Roy Moore, who's leading in the polls.

Here's something Trump said that was actually about Strange (although you could argue that it was more about himself):

President Donald Trump claimed his branding genius extended to Sen. Luther Strange's "Big Luther" nickname, telling the crowd at Huntsville's Von Braun Center that he was the first person to give the senator that moniker....

Trump made the comments while sharing an anecdote about one of the first times he met Strange.

"I said, That is the tallest human being I've ever seen," the president said. "I'm tall, I never saw something ... like he should be on the New York Knicks they, could use him. That's why i call him 'Big Luther.' Everyone's now calling him Big Luther.'"

Trump returned back to the "Big Luther" nickname later on in his speech.

"Did people call you 'Big Luther before you met Trump? You know, I brand people," he said. Nobody ever called you 'Big Luther? I think it's a great name."
Strange has been using that nickname since his first run for office, which was in 2006. Here's a news story from that 2006 race:



In that race, which Strange lost, he was running against James Folsom, Jr., who was known as "Little Jim," even though he was a six-footer, because he was the son of "Big Jim" Folsom, a former governor of Alabama. You can also watch this ad from Strange's successful 2010 campaign for state attorney general:



Here's what I'm wondering: When Trump makes a claim like this, does he believe it?

My guess is no -- at least not at first. Swaggering into a public situation and claiming ownership of an idea that's not yours is probably a trick he picked up from his father, or from one of his mentors, p...

Now is the time for Democrats to campaign on a bold agenda and fight to create an America that works for everyone. If Democrats want to win in 2018 and take our country back from the billionaire class and Republicans, they need to start by supporting legislation that speaks to the real concerns facing the American people. We're fighting for a Congress that will put people before profits to create an America where everyone, regardless of the age, race, gender or economic status has access to health care, free college tuition, a livable planet, and a job that pays a living wage. The Democratic Party Platform makes it clear that Democrats must fight for these issues as a party.

Nearly Entire 2017 US Debt Increase of $200 Billion Can Be Attributed to FED Rate Increases "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Guest post by Joe Hoft

The US Debt has increased year to date by $232 billion since President Trumps inauguration on January 20, 2017.  On inauguration day the debt was at $19.9 trillion and on September 21, 2017 the debt stood at $20.2 trillion.

President Obama during the same time period in his first term also increased the US Debt.  However, where President Trump increased the Debt to date by 1.2%, Obama increased the debt by 11.1% or 10% more than Trump.  President Obama inherited a US Debt amount of $10.6 trillion on his inauguration and increased it by nearly $1.2 trillion during his first eight months in office.

Obama increased the US Debt amount by $1 trillion more than President Trump in the first eight months of his Presidency when compared to President Trumps first eight months.

This was in spite of the fact that right after Barack Obama was elected President, on December 16, 2008, the Federal Reserve (The Fed) lowered the Fed Funds rate by an entire percent, from 1% down to 0%.  The Fed had not lowered the Fed Funds rate by such a large amount (1%) since at least before 1990, if ever.  The Fed kept this 0% rate for most of Obamas eigh...

President Trump: Since 2013 Obamacare premiums have skyrocketed Despite the promise that premiums would decrease by $2,500 on average, theyve almost increased by $3,000 and even much more than that in some cases. Its crushing the Middle Class and the families of the Middle Class. Its frankly crushing our country. Obamacare was a big lie. You can keep your doctor Lie! You can keep your plan Lie! It was a lie directly from the president. You can keep your doctor. You can keep your plan. 28 times he said that. 28 times. And it was a lie and he knew it was!

TRUMP WAS RIGHT!

Here are a few of Barack Obamas more disturbing and consequential lies.

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

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

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

The report included documents revealing that Facebooks rules often end up protecting the rights of those in power over those who are powerless. These two revelations are inextricably []

What is Putins Preferred Outcome for the German Elections? "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"


Putins preferred outcome must be an outcome which excludes the German Green Party, because the Greens support EU sanctions against Russia and they want to stop Nord Stream 2 pipeline. The status quo Grand Coalition of CDU/CSU-SPD is good for Putin, as explained further below.

The head of Nord Stream 2 is former East German (DDR) Stasi Agent Matthias Warnig, an old friend of former East German KGB officer Putin. Warnig was managing director of Nord Stream from 2006-16.

It is worth recalling that Angela Merkel (CDU) spent 36 years of her life in Communist East Germany and that either Warnig or Putin or both could have compromising information on her with which to exert control.

Former Chancellor of Germany (SPD), Gerhard Schrder, is chairman of the board of Nord Stream 2.

As a Danish MEP points out: the construction of Nord Stream 2 will make it possible for Russia to cut off Ukraine completely from vital gas supplies, will be a massive geopolitical advantage for Russia,...

Midnight Meme Of The Day! "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"


-by Noah

It's almost too bad, almost tragic, that the English found Trump so offensive that, earlier in the year, they told him they didn't want him to visit their country. Think about that. The country that practically ruined the world with their empire over 100 years ago, and spends most of its time drinking now, finds Trump offensive. And, they are right!

A splendid group that goes by the name of Wankers of the World was fully prepared for a Trump visit. Expecting a summer visit, they had even started to put up posters around London. This meme is one of them. Oh well, there's always another day.

St. Louis Aldermen Pass Resolution to Honor Heroin Dealer who Tried to Run Over Cops (Video) "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Last Friday a St. Louis judge found former Police Officer Jason Stockley NOT GUILTY in the shooting death of Anthony Smith, a black suspected heroin dealer. Black Lives Matter has held protests daily since the verdict.

Protesters stormed a local hotel on Thursday and harassed patrons in their rooms and at the pool.

After a week of violent protests where over a dozen police officers were injured and several businesses were vandalized the St. Louis Aldermen sprung to action on Friday.

The St. Louis Alderman passed a resolution to honor Anthony Smith the heroin dealer who tried to drive over Officer Stockley.

St. Louis Mayor Lyda Krewson then hugged the Smith family.

KMOV reported:

One week after the verdict was announced in the 2011 shooting death of Anthony Lamar Smith, St. Louis Mayor Lyda Krewson met with Smiths mother, Annie.

Smiths parents were invited to city hall by Alderman John Collins-Muhammad, who introduced a resolution honoring the memory of Anthony Lamar Smith.

[Smiths] death has sparked a universal cry for justice and accountability, said Muhammad. Therefore, be it resolved by the Board of Aldermen, that we pause to remember Anthony Lamar Smith.

Muhammad then handed the resolution to Smiths parents. The measure passed unanimously by voice acclamation.

Alzheimers Disease "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

No, the substance of this report doesnt emanate from Harvard Medical School and is being ignored and will predictably be dismissed by uninformed physicians whose livelihood is threatened by such a discovery.

Denial and ridicule is the first phase of any scientific discovery, followed strong opposition and finally self-evident acceptance.  This discovery hasnt even reached the first stage as it goes ignored.

The acronym for the National Institutes of Health NIH more accurately means: not invented here.  The covert mission of the NIH is to block any remedy outside of synthetic molecules from gaining FDA approval.

News of this discovery was not aired by the Associated Press, The New York Times, the BBC, CNN, or other major news services.  These news agencies boast of a bevy of well-trained medical journalists who best serve the interests of the pharmaceutical industry.

Nor will your doctor know anything about it.  If you rely on these sources of health misinformation, dont bother reading any further.

It is a non-prescription cure for Alzheimers disease.  Dont wait for any of the 105 anti-Alzheimers drugs now in the development pipeline undergoing various drug trials in the approval process.  For many Americans, these drugs will never materialize in their lifetime.  It takes ~13 years for a candidate drug to move from the laboratory to FDA approval.  By then you may not be able to remember you read this report.

Cost beyond reason

Alzheimers disease (AD) is both a social challenge and a personal tragedy.  AD costs $200+ billion a year now to treat (with ineffective drugs, mind you) and projected to grow to a staggering $1 trillion in drug sales by 2050, which is more than the current Medicare budget.

Genghis Trump "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

NEW YORK Not since Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev banged his fists and waved his shoe at the UN in 1960 has a world leader made such a spectacle of himself as President Donald Trump did this past week at the world organization.

Trump vowed to totally destroy North Korea, a nation of 25 million, if it dared threaten the US or its allies.   To do so, the US would have to use numerous nuclear weapons.

The presidents Genghis Khan behavior seemed to take no account that a US nuclear strike against North Korea would cause huge destruction to neighboring China, Japan and Russia and pollute the globe.   They could hardly be expected to applaud Trumps final solution for pesky North Korea.

As leader of the worlds greatest power, President Trump was foolish to get into a schoolyard fracas with North Koreas Kim Jong-un.  Superpowers shouldnt engage in such childish behavior.  Trumps claim that North Korea threatens the world is a reheated Bush-era lie used to whip up support for invading Iraq.

In a subsequent speech to African UN delegates, Trump comically referred to the nation of Nambia instead of Namibia.  Lets hope Trump does not mix up the Koreas.  While passing through Philadelphia last week I was reminded of its former flamboyant, tough-guy police chief Frank Rizzo.  He famously welcomed a senior Nigerian official as the leader of Niggeria.

Interestingly, both axis of evil jeremiads originated from two different neocon speech writers, both known to this writer. 

Escalating tensions, North Koreas foreign minister, Ri Yong Ho, suggested that his nation might detonate a hydrogen bomb in the atmosphere above the Pacific Ocean.

Amidst all the trumped-up hysteria over North Korea, too few questions were asked about its ballistic missiles that have caused such an uproar.

First, the DPRKs medium-range missiles, notably the 6,700km-range Hwasong and the 3,500 km-range Musudan are fueled by highly volatile liquid propellants.  Fuelling them is often done outdoors for safety reasons.  The dangerous, unstable chemical fuels have a tendency to spontaneously explode.  Early US ballistic missiles had similar problems.  Musudan, based on an elderly Soviet design, is notoriously unreliable and plagued by technical problems.

These missiles are usually kept on wheeled transporters (aka TELs) secreted in caves.  The transporters are based on Russian and Chinese designs.  An erector device then positions the missile into upright launch position.

This is the most vulnerable time for North Koreas missiles.  The US...

Are Chickenhawks Afraid of Ron and Lew? "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Buried deep inside the just-passed defense budget is a small amendment, which could lead to a ban on broadcasting RT in America. The architects of the provision, Senators Graham and McCain, may recall that in their youth such practices formed what was known as the Iron Curtain.

The National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for the fiscal year 2018, which was passed by the US Senate earlier this week, is stuffed with provisions that have little to do with US national defense. This is a tactic that US lawmakers have traditionally used to piggy-back legislation which would have little hope of adoption as a stand-alone bill.

Deep down the list of amendments is No 1096, which aims to prohibit multichannel video programming distributors from being required to carry certain video content that is owned or controlled by the Government of the Russian Federation.

Proposed by Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) and co-sponsored by Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-Rhode Island), the amendment was submitted by John McCain (R-Arizona), a fellow foreign policy hawk. The provision says a distributor working in a US jurisdiction may not be directly or indirectly required to carry video content that is is owned, controlled, or financed (in whole or in part) by the Government of the Russian Federation.

Time to buy old US gold coins

In plain English then, any contract RT currently has or will have with American cable and satellite networks to carry its programming will no longer be protected by US federal law after this amendment is signed into law by President Donald Trump. The channels current arrangements with carriers made it illegal for them to arbitrarily drop RTs programming (unless the content shown was obscene) but now they will apparently be able to discriminate against it should they so wish.

The discussion on how the US could insulate its population from RT was sparked by a declassified US intelligence community report on alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election, which put this channel in the spotlight. The report asserted that RT was a primary tool of such interference, done through critical reporting on US foreign policy and domestic problems. Despite the report containing factual errors and no...

A Blast Heard 1,200 Miles Away "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

It has been over 200 years since Mount Tambora in Indonesia erupted violently, resulting in death and disorder on a global scale.

According to The Guinness Book of World Records it is the deadliest volcano in history.

Here MailOnline Travel reveals the horrifying but fascinating history of the blast and how tourists today can take a peek at its incredible crater.

Mount Tambora is an active stratovolcano meaning it is made up of layers of ash and lava on the island of Sumbawa in Indonesia, once known as the Dutch East Indies.

Its eruption in 1815 killed around 10,000 people instantly, while the fallout from the blast included formidable tsunami waves and then famine and starvation, which took the death toll up to some 100,000 people.

The exact number of fatalities varies with some sources saying as many as 120,000 people were killed while others put the figure at around 70,000.

Time to buy old US gold coins

Mount Tambora began to erupt just before sunset on 5 April 1815 and continued for five further days, blasting even more ferociously on 10 April.

The eruptions were heard 2,000 kilometres (1,242 miles) away.

Molten rock shot more than 40 kilometres (24 miles) into the sky and a thick veil of ash spread over a million square kilometres (386,000 square miles). In total, around 140billion tonnes of rock, ash and debris was flung into the sky.

The entire region was plunged into darkness.

Debris hit the sea surrounding the island with such force and in such huge volumes that deadly tsunamis up to four metres high (13ft) were set in motion.

I Got Snarnled in the Massive Equifax Crime "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

There has been a lot in the news lately about a huge security breach that happened at credit reporting agency Equifax.  In fact, the odds are good your identity has been compromised since there were 143 million people affected.  So what should you do to give yourself the best chance of protection?

What Happened?

The breach started in mid-May of this year and lasted through July.  Of course, we consumers did not find out about it until this month, which to me is criminal, but I digress.  The hackers got names, addresses, Social Security numbers, and in certain cases, drivers license numbers.  Scarier is that 209,000 people had credit card information stolen.

Puerto Rican Catastrophe "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Puerto Rico, You lovely island,
Island of tropical breezes.
            West Side Story

Welcome to Americas first experiment in the World Made By Hand lifestyle. Where else is it going? Watch closely.

Ricardo Ramos, the director of the beleaguered, government-owned Puerto Rico Electric Power Authority, told CNN Thursday that the islands power infrastructure had been basically destroyed and will take months to come back

Basically destroyed. Thats about as basic as it gets civilization-wise.

Residents, Mr. Ramos said, would need to change the way they cook and cool off. For entertainment, old-school would be the best approach, he said. Its a good time for dads to buy a ball and a glove and change the way you entertain your children.

Time to buy old US gold coins

Meaning, I guess, no more playing Resident Evil 7: Biohazard on-screen because youll be living it though one wonders where will the money come from to buy the ball and glove? Few Puerto Ricans will be going to work with the power off. And the islands public finances were in disarray sufficient to drive it into federal court last May to set in motion a legal receivership that amounted to bankruptcy in all but name. The Commonwealth, a US territory, was in default for $74 billion in bonded debt, plus another $49 billion in unfunded pension obligations.

So, Puerto Rico already faced a crisis pre-Hurricane Maria, with its dodgy electric grid and crumbling infrastructure: roads, bridges, water and sewage systems. Bankruptcy put it in a poor position to issue new bonds for public works which are generally paid for with public borrowing. Who, exactly, would buy the new bonds? I hear readers whispering, the Federal Reserve. Which is a pretty good clue to understanding the circle-jerk that American finance has become.

Some sort of bailout is unavoidable, though President Trump tweeted No Bailout for Puerto Rico after the May bankruptcy proceeding. Things have changed and the shelf-life of Trumpian tweets is famously brief. But the crisis may actually strain the ability of the federal government to pretend it can cover the cost of every calamity that strikes the nation at least not without casting doubt on the soundness of the dollar. And not a few bonafide states are also whirling around the bankruptcy drain: Illinois, Connecticut, New Jersey, Kentucky.

Constitutionally states are not permitted to declare bankruptcy, though counties and municipalities can. Congress would have to change the law to allow it. But states can def...

Govt Crackdown Backfires "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Spain will deploy police reinforcements to the northeastern region of Catalonia to maintain order and take action if a referendum on independence pledged by the Catalan government but deemed illegal by Spain should take place, officials said Friday.

AP reports that an Interior Ministry statement said the extra agents would provide backing for the Catalan regional police who are also under orders to prevent the staging of the referendum.

But protests continue to grow and Rajoys actions only seem to solidify opposition

I feel the way people used to feel during Franco regime. Nothing less. Because Francoism is still alive, said protester Josep Selva, referring to Gen. Francisco Francos military regime that ruled Spain between 1939 and 1978, three years after his death.

The political reform of 1978 only legalized Francoism and disguised it as democracy, he said.

But, as WolfStreet.coms Don Quijones points out Madrids crackdown on Catalonia is already having one major consequence, presumably unintended: many Catalans who were until recently staunchly opposed to the idea of national independence are now reconsidering their options.

The ranking was conducted by JD Power and asked about customer experiences.

Among those that also received a poor score were Newark Liberty International in New Jersey, Los Angeles International and OHare International in Chicago.

How the US Became a Warmonger Police State "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Professor David Ray Griffin is a tenacious person. He has written a number of carefully researched books that demonstrate the extraordinary shortcomings in the official account of the 9/11 attack on the World Trade Center and Pentagon and the subsequent anthrax attack. He has provided the mountains of evidence completely ignored by the US governments account and the presstitute media.

In his recently published latest book, Bush and Cheney: How They Ruined America and the World , Professor Griffin demonstrates how 9/11 was used by the Zionist Neoconservatives, the Cheney/Bush regime, and the military/security complex with the complicity of Congress and the US media to create Islamophobia among the American public in order to launch wars of aggression against Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Yemen, Syria, and provinces of Pakistan with Iran in the crosshairs. These wars are based on lies and fabricated evidence, on determination to control pipelines and oil flows, on maximizing profits for the military/security corporations in which Cheney has a personal interest, and on extending neoconservative hegemony over the world.

One consequence has been the destruction of US constitutional protections that protect liberty and violations of US and international law such as the laws against torture.

Another consequence has been millions of displaced refugees from Washingtons wars over-running the countries of Europe.

Is Your Shampoo Making You Sick? "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

By Dr. Mercola

You may be mistakenly comforted by the perceived oversight by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) over chemicals used in the manufacture of everyday products. For instance, the FDA prohibits the use of mercurychloroform and nine other substances in your personal care products. However, once you know the European Union (EU) prohibits the use of more than 1,300 chemicals in their personal care products, you may not feel as protected and you would be right.

The number of chemicals restricted by the FDA is even more ridiculous when you consider there are over 84,000 different chemicals in use in your personal care products and only 1 percent of those have been evaluated for safety in humans.1

The difference between chemical use in the EU and the U.S. is that in the EU manufacturers must prove chemicals are not a health hazard before they are allowed in products, whereas in the U.S. they can be added without mandatory safety testing and only removed after enough people have suffered to get the attention of watch groups or the FDA.

Women are at greater risk than men from exposure as they routinely use nearly double the number of products per day. Under the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act, products do not require FDA approval before being sold on the market.2 According to the FDA, the agency monitors safety reports on the products, although often the available information is limited and many consumers never report problems they experience.

If there is enough information to support a claim that the product causes harm, the FDA may ask for a court injunction, request the products are seized, initiate criminal action or request the company recall the product.

All stories have two sides, and The War for Southern Independence is no exception. This volume by Colonel Lochlainn Seabrook presents the Southern view. I was riveted as I was reading each page.

Colonel Seabrook cuts his way through Yankee myths and fabrications with expert skill (evidence of his many years of writing on Southern history). This volume is well researched and gives much food for thought and cause for reflection. Finally a work that sets the record straight on the War for Sothern Independence and the events which led up to it.This volume is a bargain at any price.

How Old Is Your Heart? "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

A study from Public Health England found that one in 10 men over the age of 50 have a heart that is 10 years older than their actual age. In the U.S., one in three deaths is attributed to cardiovascular disease. Every 40 seconds, one American dies as a result of cardiovascular disease. Cardiovascular disease claims more lives than all forms of cancer and chronic lower respiratory disease combined. The unfortunate part is that cardiovascular disease can be prevented by adhering to a healthy lifestyle, yet many Americans are still falling victim to heart disease.

In response to the alarming number of individuals over the age of 50 being diagnosed with heart disease, there has been a health initiative created in the UK known as the Heart Age Test. The online or app survey takes less than five minutes and involves some simple yes or no questions that can help reveal the age of your heart.

Associate Professor Jamie Waterall explained, Its about empowering people to understand what action they can take. Cardiovascular diseases affecting the heart, brain, and blood vessels are a major cause of premature death and ill health, but theyre largely preventable.

Providing people with their heart age may make people aware that changes need to be made in a persons life.

What puts you at risk

Risk factors for heart disease are split into two categories: modifiable and non-modifiable. Modifiable risk factors include obesity and smoking, while non-modifiable risk factors include gender and age.

Another interesting aspect that the app includes is the use of your postal code. Where you live also plays a part in your heart health. For example, if you live in a rural area, you are less likely to be exposed to car pollution compared to someone in the city. Furthermore, stresses vary between countryside living and city dwelling. Lastly, where you live may also be an indication of your socioeconomic status, and it is known that those who live in poorer areas tend to have worse heart health.

If youre interested in learning how old your heart is, visit the One You website and answer the provided questions. They also have an additional resource that measures overall health, which asks questions more specific to diet, exercise, and other lifestyle habits.

In the meantime, the steps you can take to bring you closer to a healthier heart include being physically active, tackling obesity, monitoring and ...

As previously reported, The Washington Free Beacons Adam Kredo says Powers unmasking was done on an unprecedented scale. A new report by Fox News states Power sought to unmask Americans nearly every day. 

An attorney for Trump Jay Sekulow and his partner at the ACLJ Jordan Sekulow broke down Samantha Powers unprecedented unmasking requests on their Friday radio show. Jordan Sekulow points out that Powers unmasking was crammed in the last few weeks or perhaps days of the Obama administration which means she was unmasking dozens of people OR MORE in a single working day.

Sekulow puts Powers unmasking requests into context by comparing it to other UN Ambassadors of the past.

Her number of requests are unprecedented in the history of UN Ambassadors who also have the position to unmask, Jordan Sekulow began.

No other UN Ambassador has ever even made half of the requests Power made in their ENTIRE CAREER, let alone a few months.

Jordan Sekulow also wondered how many people Samantha Power unmasked the year before versus the election year.

This unmasking scandal dwarfs Watergate. Obama and his cronies were s...

Foreign Tourists Are Avoiding Trump Country "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"


The NAACP issued it's first-ever travel advisory last month-- for the state of Missouri. Missouri has become a real police state-- with the most violent and unaccountable law enforcement systems in America, a virtual occupying force. The NAACP pointed out that African-Americans are 75% more likely to be stopped by the police than whites." Nor were they thrilled by a new state law that makes it harder to sue businesses for racial discrimination.
The advisory, the first of its kind for the organization, stated that visitors and state residents should pay special attention and exercise extreme caution when traveling throughout the state given the series of questionable, race-based incidents occurring statewide recently. It was reviewed and renewed on Aug. 28.


Missouri might be worst-- but the other day, we mentioned that hate crimes in the U.S. have been climbing since Trump managed to slip into the White House.

That makes foreign tourists nervous and on Tuesday, the NY Times reported that...

To the Editor:

The art program of the Connecticut Prison Association is proud to have helped Raymond Materson and other talented prisoners get their starts as respected artists [ "From Scraps of Prison Cloth a Miniature World Grows," Dec. 11 ] . Other Connecticut prison artists, among them Michael Iovieno, Dominic Vincenzo and Michael Reddick, are also receiving national recognition.

The program provides art instruction, materials and exhibition opportunities to inmates throughout the state. Last year we worked with more than 300 prison artists, exhibited the work of 97 inmates in our annual show and published a journal.

#NeverTrump RINO Jeff Flake Down 26 Points to GOP Challenger Kelli Ward Says its Not Relevant (Video) "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Republican challenger Dr. Kelli Ward jumped to a 26 point lead over #NeverTrump RINO Senator Jeff Flake in the Arizona primary race in late August.

But #NeverTrump RINO Senator Jeff Flake says the recent polls are not relevant.

Senator Flake spoke with MSNBC this morning about his current situation.

The Daily Caller reported:

GOP Sen. Jeff Flake of Arizona thinks polls showing Dr. Kelli Ward beating him in the Senate primary race are not relevant and said Thursday that incumbents always run behind in off-year elections.

Off year polls are always, incumbents are always down. Its not that those polls are inaccurate. Theyre probably accurate. You do ten of them youll get the same thing. Its just that theyre not very relevant right now, Flake said on Morning Joe.

One poll released in late August showed Ward with 47 percent, and Flake far behind with 21 percent.

Liberals Come Unglued Over New Report Claiming Russian Hackers Targeted 21 States Voting Systems There Was No Breach "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Theres Russians everywhere!

AP is reporting that the Department of Homeland Security told election officials of 21 states that hackers targeted their systems last year.

AP, contacted every state election office on Friday. While not all of them responded immediately those that said they were targeted were Alabama, Arizona, Colorado, Connecticut, Illinois, Iowa, Maryland, Minnesota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Washington and Wisconsin.

The government didnt say who was behind the hacks or what the hackers were looking for, however; the election officials said they believe the attempts could be linked to Russia.

Whatever that means.

Heres why this is more Russian fake news hysteria by the left in order to keep the Russian collusion hoax alive.

The vote tallying software wasnt breached.

According to AP, Federal officials said that in most of the 21 states, the targeting was preparatory activity such as scanning computer systems. The targets included voter registration systems but not vote tallying software. Officials said there were some attempts to compromise networks but most were unsuccessful.

Colorado election officials said the hacking attempt wasnt even an attack or a breach.

Its really reconnaissance by a bad guy to try and figure out how we would break into your computer, said Trevor Timmons, a spokesman for the Colorado secretary of states office. Its not an attack. I wouldnt call it a probe. Its not a breach, its not a penetration.

Furthermore, foreign countries trying to hack into our computer systems is nothing new. This report doesnt even say whether other countries such as China attempted to hack because that would cloud the Russians under every bed narrative.

Obamas DHS also tried to hack into Indianas and Georgias electoral systems.

For Dayna Steele's Campaign, As For All Houston Hurricane Harvey Was A Serious Interruption "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"


Most people in the Houston area know Dayna Steele, former KLOL radio host, as "the First Lady of Rock'n'Roll." The first time they heard every great song and every great band-- from U2 , Nirvana, Joan Jett and The Police to Van Halen, Heart and Bon Jovi-- that jolted their lives-- in a way few politicians ever can-- it was intimately, just them, their radio... and Dayna. Otherwise her latest endeavor-- taking on right-wing kook Brian Babin in a beet-red district-- would seem... quixotic. TX-36 went for Trump over Hillary 72% to 25%. The PVI is R+26. No Democrat has ever won an R+26 district before. With not even a nod in her direction from the DCCC, Dayna is starting the process of making history. Or, rather, she was starting that process when Harvey intruded on her life and on the lives of the people in her district. TX-36 was one of the hardest hit districts from this hurricane, ironic when you consider that Babin is a lunatic fringe and very aggressive Climate Science denier. When Hurricane Harvey hit Houston, Dayna turned her congressional campaign into a relief and resources team. She's been working to help her neighbors ever since. Now it is our turn to lend a hand to Dayna. You can donate to her campaign to unseat Republican Brian Babin here.

We asked Dayna to write another guest post-- her first for us was here-- about the impact of the hurricane on her, her campaign and the folks in Houston-- and what can be learned from that.

FBI Misses THIRD Deadline to Hand Over Subpoenaed Documents On Trump Dossier "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

A third deadline has now passed for the FBI and Justice Department to hand over subpoenaed documents to the House Intelligence Committee relating to the debunked Russian dossier.

The big question is, did the FBI actually use this garbage dossier to obtain a FISA warrant like reports suggest?

CNN reported Monday that Obamas FBI indeed wiretapped Trumps campaign manager, Paul Manafort before, during and after the 2016 presidential election. CNN is even admitting that Trump himself may have been caught up in the surveillance.

The Obama FBI used a secret court order to wiretap Manafort. We the people deserve to know if the debunked dossier was used to obtain this FISA warrant in order to spy on Trumps camp.

The Washington Examiner reports:

Intelligence Committee chairman Devin Nunes originally set a Sept. 1 deadline for production of the dossier documents. The FBI did not comply. Nunes then extended the deadline to Sept. 14. The FBI did not comply. Then Nunes extended the deadline again, to Sept. 22. Now, again, the FBI has not complied.

Theres a lot at stake. Nunes is currently traveling in the Middle East, so it is not clear what the next step will be, or when it will happen. But so far, the FBI and the Justice Department do not appear to be in the mood to comply with the subpoena.
 What we do know is that Comey cited this dossier in some of his briefings:

FBI Director James Comey has cited the dossier in some of his briefings with lawmakers in recent weeks as one of the information sources used by his bureau to bolster its probe, U.S. officials briefed on the investigation told CN...

Hillarys Resistance PAC Spends 4 Mos. Collecting Donations Has Yet to Give a Dime to the Cause "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Hillary Clinton just wont go away.

As The Gateway Pundit previously reported, Hillary Clinton launched her new PAC Onward Together in May with the motto Resist, insist, persist, enlist. (whatever that means).

Since Hillary Clinton can no longer sell influence and power in exchange for donations to the Clinton Foundation, she has to come up with new and exciting ways to fleece the sheep.

Two-time loser (3 times if you include the re-count) Hillary has been begging for donations to fund the resistance since May by asking for donations on her site (starting at $5.00) and she has yet to donate a dime to the cause.

The Onward Together website has only two pages. A landing page and a donation page.

An email signed by Hillary Clinton asking supporters for MORE MONEY last week attempted to explain away her lack of action as of late. You may not have heard much about the work were doing at Onward Together. Thats because were working behind the scene to fund, support, and amplify the work of the groups were supporting. Were not the story: they are.

Screenshot of the email provided by The Daily Caller:

The Daily Caller also reached out to the five political groups Hillary said she would be partnering with: Indivisible, Swing Left, Color of Change, Emerge America and Run for Something. None of the groups would confirm that Onward Together has financially supported them.
