Video Proof: Eyewitnesses Claim Helicopters Were Used During Las Vegas Massacre "IndyWatch Feed World"

vegas-shooting1

Since the very beginning the mainstream media has consistently and purposefully covered up the plethora of eyewitness reports that indicate that the people on the ground fully believed that helicopters were in the air during the time of the attack and possibly actually part of the massacre itself.

On top of that, numerous independent researchers, including this reporter and Intellihubs Shepard Ambellas, have spent countless hours attempting to prove that helicopters were in the air at the time of the attack and were either used by the attackers or by authorities who were trying to stop them.

Now, in a move designed to make it easier for the general public to find the actual facts regarding the attack, a YouTuber by the name of John E Hoover has released a video compilation with all the eyewitness accounts of helicopters in the air at the time of the attack.

After watching the video it becomes strikingly clear that the helicopters were so obvious that most witnesses recorded during the attack specifically mentioned them.

Keep in mind that this is on top of research from Ambellas that detailed the fact that numerous private helicopters were indeed flying throughout the strip as the attack happened.

Flight records, aircraft transponder data, and video footage all reveal that covert air assault and EXFIL operations may have transpired on the night of the massacre.

Flight records indicate that three Airbus EC130 helicopters registered to Mustang Leasing LLC (N-numbers N854MH, N848MH, and N858MH) departed from the vicinity of...

Monbiot Still Burying his Head in Sands of Syria "IndyWatch Feed World"

Investigative journalist Gareth Porter has published two exclusives whose import is far greater than may be immediately apparent. They concern Israels bombing in 2007 of a supposed nuclear plant secretly built, according to a self-serving US and Israeli narrative, by Syrian leader Bashar Assad.

Although the attack on the nuclear reactor occurred a decade ago, there are pressing lessons to be learnt for those analysing current events in Syria.

Porters research indicates very strongly that the building that was bombed could not have been a nuclear reactor and that was clear to experts at the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) even as the story was being promoted uncritically across the western media.

But and this is the critical information Porter conveys the IAEA failed to disclose the fact that it was certain the building was not a nuclear plant, allowing the fabricated narrative to be spread unchallenged. It abandoned science to bow instead to political expediency.

The promotion of the bogus story of a nuclear reactor by Israel and key figures in the Bush administration was designed to provide the pretext for an attack on Assad. That, it was hoped, would bring an end to his presidency and drag into the fray the main target Iran. The Syrian nuclear reactor was supposed to be a re-run of the WMD deception, used in 2003 to oust another enemy of the US and Israels Saddam Hussein of Iraq.

It is noteworthy that the fabricated evidence for a nuclear reactor occurred in 2007, a year after Israels failure to defeat Hizbullah in Lebanon. The 2006 Lebanon war was itself intended to spread to Syria and lead to Assads overthrow, as I explained in my book Israel and the Clash of Civilisations.

It is important to remember that this Israeli-neocon plot against Syria long predated in fact, in many ways prefigured the civil war in 2011 that quickly morphed into a proxy war in which the US became a key, if mostly covert, actor.

The lefts Witchfinder General

The relevance of the nuclear reactor deception can be understood in relation to the latest efforts by Guardian columnist George Monbiot (and many others) to discredit prominent figures on the left, including Noam Chomsky and John Pilger, for their caution in making assessments of much more recent events in Syria. Monbiot has attacked them for not joining him in simply assu...

Postmodern crusade going mad: Schools around Western empire now banning best-friends "IndyWatch Feed World"

Members of the royal family aren't often told what they can and can't do. But just a few days into his first year of school, 4-year-old Prince George already faces a mandate: No best friends allowed. Thomas's Battersea, the school George attends, bans kids from having best friends, Marie Claire reports. Instead, teachers encourage all students to form bonds with one another to avoid creating feelings of exclusions among those without best friends. Jane Moore, a parent whose child attends the school, explained the idea on a recent episode of the British talk show "Loose Women." "There's a policy," she said, "that if your child is having a party - unless every child is invited - you don't give out the invites in class."

Consider the Source America! Accusers are Guilty! (VIDEO) "IndyWatch Feed World"

All politics formed against Christ and His Gospel end at last in the destruction of those who contrived them. George Whitfield

It never ceases to amaze me of the absolute criminal conduct of the state-controlled media that continuously puts the cameras and microphones up to the mouths of corrupt politicians who are doing everything in their power to protect the establishment that is attempting to destroy not only Judge Roy Moore, but this country as well.

Keep in mind that those who are accusing Moore have been busted time and time again in lie after lie and scandal after scandal.

Setting the CIA-controlled media aside, which 94% of Americans claim that they do not believe (Romans 1:18), lets cut to the chase and address those who are personally accusing and attacking Roy Moore (Revelation 12:10).

This is only the tip of the iceberg.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Monday that Republican candidate for US Senate Roy Moore should end his campaign for U.S. Senate in Alabama, following allegations.

I think he should step aside, said McConnell.

When asked by a reporter if he believed the allegations, McConnell responded: I believe the women, yes.

Smartphones: The obvious culprit in the deteriorating mental health of teens "IndyWatch Feed World"

Around 2012, something started going wrong in the lives of teens. In just the five years between 2010 and 2015, the number of U.S. teens who felt useless and joyless - classic symptoms of depression - surged 33 percent in large national surveys. Teen suicide attempts increased 23 percent. Even more troubling, the number of 13- to 18-year-olds who committed suicide jumped 31 percent. In a new paper published in Clinical Psychological Science, my colleagues and I found that the increases in depression, suicide attempts and suicide appeared among teens from every background - more privileged and less privileged, across all races and ethnicities and in every region of the country. All told, our analysis found that the generation of teens I call "iGen" - those born after 1995 - is much more likely to experience mental health issues than their millennial predecessors. What happened so that so many more teens, in such a short period of time, would feel depressed, attempt suicide and commit suicide? After scouring several large surveys of teens for clues, I found that all of the possibilities traced back to a major change in teens' lives: the sudden ascendance of the smartphone.

American General: US-Backed Rebels Detaining ISIS Supporters And Doctors "IndyWatch Feed World"

(TFC) In mid-October, US Army Major General James B Jarrard of a joint spec ops task force operating throughout Syria and Iraq attended a press conference. He made headlines for accidentally stating America has 4000 boots in Syria, not a publicly acknowledged 503. That, however, wasnt the only interesting admission the spec ops commander disclosed.

Clashes have been fierce throughout Syrias bloody war, and Raqqa is no different. Since the Islamic State entered the war, theyve held the city as a stronghold. The militants dug in and took on relentless air strikes followed by sieges by foreign-funded rebel grounds.

Once the battles ended, an undisclosed number of ISIS affiliates surrendered to the Syrian Defense Force (SDF). The group is a US-supported rebel conglomerate of Kurdish, Arab, and other ethnic groups. Various rebel battalions and militias comprise its ranks including the Kurdish YPG. Although Jarrard was fickle with ISIS numbers, but did have good estimates for SDF casualties.

Throughout the fight, Major General Jarrard explained, there have been over 1200 friendly KIA of SDF forces. So, specific to Raqqa, there are approximately 434. About 905 US-backed rebels were wounded in Raqqa alone. Major General Jarrard stated SDF fighters took prisoners they believe were affiliated with Daesh.

 

So some a lot of those are continue to be detained by the SDF in their facilities in northeast Syria.  There were a lot of ISIS that were considered ISIS because of their relationship with the ISIS the Daesh.  But a lot of them were not necessarily fighters.  They were in administrative positions, working in hospitals, helping feed the large number of Daesh on the battlefield. Major General James B. Jarrard

 

Most of these individuals, local Syrians, were turned over to their respective tribal leadership. All western forces did, according to Jarrard, was record their biometrics for future tracking. Its currently unclear what will happen to the unidentified people SDF captured during the Raqqa battle. As Jarrard implies, some of them were medical personnel who treated wounded ISIS fighters.

What should be done from an international human rights perspective? Major General Jarrard was asked if the American government had any jurisdiction over the captu...

Dont Try This At Home: Flat-Earther Plans A MANNED Launch Of Homemade Rocket "IndyWatch Feed World"

flatearth

All in the name of science, or rejection thereof, a flat-earther (someone who believes Earth is flat and not a globe) is planning to build a rocket and use it to propel himself into space.  To prove the Earth is flat of course.

This is not recommended, yet 61-year-old DIY enthusiast and stuntman Mad Mike Hughes is planning his first manned launch of a homemade, $20,000 steam-powered rocket with RESEARCH FLAT EARTH written on the side on Saturday, the Associated Press reported.

Hughes says he expects his new rocket to hurl him through the skies above the Mojave Desert ghost town of Amboy at up to 500 miles per hour for roughly one mile, attaining a peak altitude of 1,800 feet before it deploys two parachutes. Hughes is a proponent of the Flat Earth theory and the Research Flat Earth group is his main sponsor. Hughes does not believe in science, and he told the Associated Press that science is no different from science fiction.

I know about aerodynamics and fluid dynamics and how things move through the air, about the certain size of rocket nozzles, and thrust, he added. But thats not science, thats just a formula. Theres no difference between science and science fiction. If youre not scared to death, youre an idiot, Hughes, who once reassured Ars Technica...

France ran out of money this month - the rest of Europe not far behind "IndyWatch Feed World"

At first glance, not a lot was going on last Tuesday. Priti Patel was desperately trying to hang onto her job, unsuccessfully as it turned out. Donald Trump was mouthing off on a trip to South Korea. Manchester City were rumoured to bidding for an incredibly expensive footballer, and somebody somewhere was inevitably moaning on about Brexit. It was all fairly run-of-the-mill stuff. But for number-crunchers, something interesting happened. It was the day when France ran out of money. As of Nov. 7, all the money the government raises through its taxes - and this being France, there are literally dozens of them - had been spent. The rest of the year is financed completely on tick. And yet France is far from alone. All the main European countries, the UK included, are running out of tax revenue well before the year is over. That is worrying for three reasons. It is reminder that spending is still way too high. It tells us that governments have failed to curb deficits. And it is a warning that next time there is a recession governments won't have any room to respond with a fiscal boost.

Kim Jong-un has displayed trademark defiance after the United States declared Pyongyang a state sponsor of terrorism, saying sanctions make the spirit of North Korea stronger.

The hostile forces desperate efforts to block the advance of the DPRK make the indomitable spirit of the Korean workers stronger and make them produce a great miracle startling the world, the North Korean leader said, according to the state news agency KCNA.

The KCNA published the news just hours after US President Donald Trump announced his decision to reinclude North Korea on the list of state sponsors of terrorism.

The designation, announced on Monday, allows the US to impose more sanctions on Pyongyang, which is pursuing nuclear weapons and missile programs in defiance of UN Security Council sanctions.

The announcement has been welcomed by Japan and South Korea.

I welcome and support (the designation) as it raises the pressure on North Korea, Japans Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said, according to Kyodo news agency.

South Korea said it expected the listing to contribute to the peaceful denuclearisation of the North, adding it continued, along with the US, to seek to bring North Korea to the negotiating table.

Trumps relisting of North Korea as a sponsor of terrorism comes a week after he returned from a 12-day trip to Asia in which containing Pyongyangs nuclear ambitions was a centrepiece of discussions.

In addition to threatening the world by nuclear devastation, North Korea has repeatedly supported acts of international terrorism, including assassinations on foreign soil, Trump said at the White House.

This designation will impose further sanctions and penalties on North Korea and related persons and supports our maximum pressure campaign to isolate the murderous regime.

Aust responsible for Manus refugees: UN "IndyWatch Feed World"

Manus Island refugees.

Manus Island refugees.

The situation for hundreds of asylum seekers stranded on a Papua New Guinea island is getting worse every day, a UN refugee official says, urging Australia to resume its responsibility for them.

Australia closed the offshore detention centre on Manus Island at the end of October, but some 380 refugees and asylum seekers have refused to leave, citing safety fears outside the centres walls.

The situation on the ground is very serious and deteriorating day by day, said Nai Jit Lam, a regional representative of the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR) on Tuesday.

Lam said medicines ran out last week, their health is suffering in the hot and humid weather, and they have started digging wells inside the centre to get water.

The 250 others who have moved out of the centre face an apprehensive local population and unfinished alternative housing on the island, Lam said, adding that the migrants do not speak the local language.

Australia must continue to take responsibility and play an active role in achieving solutions, Lam said.

The United Nations had long criticised the living conditions on Australias offshore migrant centres, while the government argued that they deter people smugglers.

Last year, Papua New Guineas Supreme Court ruled the Manus camp illegal and asked the government to close it.

Facing impeachment, Mugabe resigns "IndyWatch Feed World"

Mugabe resigns as impeachment begins

Robert Mugabe has resigned as Zimbabwes president, shortly after parliament began an impeachment process to end his nearly four decades of rule.

The 93-year-old clung on for a week after an army takeover and expulsion from his own ruling ZANU-PF party, which also told him to leave power.

On Tuesday, wild celebrations broke out during a joint sitting of parliament when Speaker Jacob Mudenda announced Mugabes resignation and suspended the impeachment procedure.

People danced and car horns blared on the streets of Harare at news that the era of Mugabe who has led Zimbabwe since independence in 1980 was finally over.

Zimbabwes former vice president Emmerson Mnangagwa will be sworn in as president on Wednesday or Thursday, ZANU-PF legal secretary Patrick Chinamasa told Reuters, after the resignation.

Separately, ZANU-PF chief whip Lovemore Matuke told Reuters that Mnangagwa would be sworn in within 48 hours and that he would serve the remainder of Mugabes term until the next general elections, which must be held by September 2018.

The origin of Mugabes sudden downfall lies in rivalry between members of Zimbabwes ruling elite over who will succeed him, rather than popular protests against his rule.

The army seized power after Mugabe sacked ZANU-PFs favourite to succeed him, Mnangagwa, to smooth a path to the presidency for his wife Grace, 52, known to her critics as Gucci Grace for her reputed fondness for luxury shopping.

Mnangagwa, a former security chief known as The Crocodile, is expected to take over as president.

Zimbabwes military chief Constantino Chiwenga urged restraint across all political parties after the resignation.

Paranormal buff records voices of the dead "IndyWatch Feed World"

You can keep your video games, your knitting, your gardening. Eric Vogel has a hobby that's not your everyday pastime. He records the voices of the dead. Within the realm of ghost hunting or parapsychology, Electronic Voice Phenomena, or EVP, are the sounds or voices potentially caused by voices from beyond the grave. These sounds are not caught by the ear, appearing only on the digital recordings made by those trying to contact ghosts. Long fascinated with the paranormal, Vogel is also a history buff, and he combines the two interests in his pursuit of ghostly voices. "I lucked upon a tour group in town that used to do spirit investigations of the Mid City Hotel, which is right next to the Bistro," said Vogel. "I used to do some investigations with them using a digital recorder and was able to capture some EVPs."

English government scraps EU legislation that sees animals as sentient beings, says they can't feel pain "IndyWatch Feed World"

Proving the rule that you should never trust an English politician, a majority of members of Theresa May's Tory Government have voted that all animals have no emotions or feelings, including the ability to feel pain. As part of the process of shaping the EU Withdrawal Bill, the English government has decided to scrap EU legislation that sees animals as sentient beings, opening the way for a return to the favorite sport of the quintessential Englishman and woman: torturing and killing innocent creatures. Once the English leave the EU in 2019 (and the rest of Europe heaves a collective sigh of relief), it will not only be badgers and foxes - the traditional quarry of brain-damaged English toffs - that will be threatened by this change in law, but all animals that aren't pets (although pets across England should be very worried). The vote comes in contrast to extensive scientific evidence that shows that animals do have feelings and emotions, some even stronger than ours. Then again, the English elite never did let facts get in the way of a nice bit of brutalization of the defenseless. The staggering arrogance and cruelty that informs this decision exposes the fact that most English MPs have significantly less conscience and compassion than the average alligator.

Americans quiet over their government's support of the Saudi-led slaughter in Yemen "IndyWatch Feed World"

As the world focuses on isolated incidents of terrorism taking place in Western countries, the wholesale slaughter being committed by Western countries against others generally goes unnoticed unless being pinned on the victim nation. However, even with Americans and other Westerners paying scant attention to Iraq and Syria, the conflict in Yemen scarcely gets a mention except in communities of human rights activists and geopolitical commentators. Even after Yemen has overtaken Syria as the world's greatest humanitarian crisis, most of the world has remained deathly silent about the situation unfolding there. While not overwhelmingly involved with troops, bombing campaigns, and the like in the way that it is in Syria or Iraq, the United States is nonetheless complicit in the destruction of an entire country by providing intelligence, weapons, and political support to Saudi Arabia and the GCC in their war against the Yemeni people. In addition to that support, however, the United States has, at times, also contributed limited direct military support to the Saudi effort.

Madagascar Outbreak: It Is Inevitable The Plague Becomes Resistant To Drugs | madagascar-plague | Medical & Health Sleuth Journal Special Interests World News

By Mac Slavo, SHTFplan.com

The newest warning about the outbreak of the airborne pneumonic plague, or black death, in Madagascar has been released. Officials warn that its inevitable that this bacterial infection thats infected over 2000 people will become resistant to antibiotics.

The only way to treat a person who has contracted the plague is with antibiotics. But experts now warn that because they are being used so much to treat the infection, antibiotics resistance is inevitable and making this disease much more terrifying. Once the bacteria is resistant, the Madagascar healthcare system will be overwhelmed, and the disease will have control of the nation.

According to the Daily Mail, Madagascars healthcare system will be unable to cope if the deadly plague outbreak continues to escalate, a scientist has warned. Scores of doctors and nurses have been struck down with the disease, which is predicted to gather momentum in the coming weeks and there are growing fears hospitals will be unable to meet the illness burden. Official figures reveal at least 2,034 people have been infected with the medieval disease so far in what has been described as the worst outbreak in 50 years. The black death outbreak has so far claimed at least 165 lives.

Ron Paul: Why Are We Helping Saudi Arabia Destroy Yemen? "IndyWatch Feed World"

YemenMap

Its remarkable that whenever you read an article about Yemen in the mainstream media, the central role of Saudi Arabia and the United States in the tragedy is glossed over or completely ignored.

A recent Washington Post article purporting to tell us how things got so bad explains to us that, its a complicated story involving warring regional superpowers, terrorism, oil, and an impending climate catastrophe.

No, Washington Post, its simpler than that.

The tragedy in Yemen is the result of foreign military intervention in the internal affairs of that country.

It started with the Arab Spring which had all the fingerprints of State Department meddling, and it escalated with 2015s unprovoked Saudi attack on the country to re-install Riyadhs preferred leader.

Thousands of innocent civilians have been killed and millions more are at risk of starvation and cholera rage.

We are told that US foreign policy should reflect American values.

So how can Washington support Saudi Arabia a tyrannical state with one of the worst human rights record on earth as it commits by what any measure is a genocide against the Yemeni people?

The UN undersecretary-general for humanitarian affairs warned just last week that Yemen faces the largest famine the world has seen for many decades with millions of victims.

The Red Cross has just estimated that a million people are vulnerable in the cholera epidemic that rages through Yemen.

And why is there a cholera epidemic? Because the Saudi government with US support has blocked every port of entry to prevent critical medicine from reaching suffering Yemenis. This is not a war. It is cruel murder.

The United States is backing Saudi aggression against Yemen by cooperating in every way with the Saudi military.

Targeting, intelligence, weapons sales, and more.

The US is a partner in Saudi Arabias Yemen crimes.

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

The claim that we are fighting al-Qaeda in Yemen and thus our involvement is covered under the post-9/11 authorization for the use of force is without merit.

In fact, it has been reported numerous times in the mainstream media that US intervention on behalf of the Saudis in Yemen is actually a boost to al-Qaeda in the country.

UK cigarette prices could jump for the second time in a year "IndyWatch Feed World"

Speculation has mounted about whether the cost of cigarettes is set to increase for a second time in a year in Wednesday's Budget. Since the Chancellor already announced an increase in the price of cigarettes in March, the UK's 10 million smokers are hoping to be spared another hike, which could push the cost of the average pack to over 10. This week's Budget is unusual in that it will be the second one this year - which normally only happens when there is a change of government. Philip Hammond effectively gets a second bite of the cherry with the nation's finances, because last year he announced the 2017 Autumn Statement would become an Autumn Budget, with a much smaller "Spring Statement" next year. Tobacco is subject to an automatic, annual increase in duty of two per cent above the rate of inflation, with the average cost of 20 cigarettes standing at 9.91 in March after the spring budget slapped an extra 35p on a pack.

Faces Of Evil: Bill Clinton, Al Franken, Charlie Rose And Glenn Thrush All Face New Sexual Misconduct Allegations "IndyWatch Feed World"

Bill-Clinton-And-Al-Franken-Wikimedia-Commons

Have we entered a time when justice will begin to prevail in America?  For decades, celebrities, politicians and those in other positions of power have been engaging in very serious sexual misconduct, and victims have felt powerless to do anything about it.

But now thanks to Harvey Weinstein, the dam appears to be breaking and all of a sudden a flood of allegations is coming out.  On Monday, we learned of brand new accusations against Bill Clinton, Al Franken, Charlie Rose and New York Times journalist Glenn Thrush.

Lets start with Thrush, because many find his case to be the most ironic.  The New York Times is supposed to be a paragon of political correctness, and yet it is being alleged that one of their most highly decorated reporters has been sexually harassing women for a very long time

Vox interviewed multiple women who alleged sexual misconduct against Thrush, including unwanted groping and kissing.

Laura McGann, the editorial director at Vox and the author of the story, described an incident at a bar five years ago, when she and Thrush were colleagues at Politico.

He slid into my side of the booth, blocking me in, she wrote. I was wearing a skirt, and he put his hand on my thigh. He started kissing me. I pulled myself together and got out of there, shoving him on my way out.

She wrote that she found a pattern in Thrushs behavior through interviews with other women.

Thrush has already been suspended by the New York Times, and this is likely the end of his journalistic career.

Meanwhile, eight different women have come forward to accuse Charlie Rose of making unwanted sexual advances

And just minutes ago, the Washington Post reported that eight women have...

ECB deposit protection scheme in jeopardy, protect savings with gold "IndyWatch Feed World"

- Protect Your Savings With Gold: ECB Propose End To Deposit Protection - New ECB paper proposes 'covered deposits' should be replaced to allow for more flexibility - Fear covered deposits may lead to a run on the banks - Savers should be reminded that a bank's word is never its bond and to reduce counterparty exposure - Physical gold enable savers to stay out of banking system and reduce exposure to bail-ins It is the 'opinion of the European Central Bank' that the deposit protection scheme is no longer necessary: 'covered deposits and claims under investor compensation schemes should be replaced by limited discretionary exemptions to be granted by the competent authority in order to retain a degree of flexibility.' To translate the legalese jargon of the ECB bureaucrats this could mean that the current 100,000 (85,000) deposit level currently protected in the event of a bail-in may soon be no more. But worry not fellow savers as the ECB is fully aware of the uproar this may cause so they have been kind enough to propose that: "...during a transitional period, depositors should have access to an appropriate amount of their covered deposits to cover the cost of living within five working days of a request." So that's a relief, you'll only need to wait five days for some 'competent authority' to deem what is an 'appropriate amount' of your own money for you to have access to in order eat, pay bills and get to work.

Why the DOJ is downplaying proof linking Obama and Clinton to Russian corruption "IndyWatch Feed World"

Following the release of the identity of the FBI informant, Justice Department officials in recent days said that informant William Campbell's prior work won't shed much light on the U.S. government's controversial decision in 2010 to approve Russia's purchase of the Uranium One mining company and its substantial U.S. assets. However, The Hill's John Solomon has reviewed 1000s of new memos from an FBI informant that clearly show illegal activity surrounding a Russian plot to corner the American uranium market, ranging from corruption inside a U.S. nuclear transport company to Obama administration approvals that let Moscow buy and sell more atomic fuels. FBI informant Campbell, acting as a consultant trying to help Rosatom overcome political opposition to the Uranium One deal, gathered evidence for six years, and, according to the more than 5,000 pages of documents from the counterintelligence investigation, there are a number of evidentiary links between corrupt Russians, President Obama, and Hillary Clinton...

This is a headline I've been waiting to write for six years. German Chancellor Emeritus Angela Merkel can't put a bad coalition together. This is the result of an election that saw populist Alternative for Germany (AfD) rise and the Social Democrats, led by Soros-stooge Martin Schultz, fall. Now the Free Democrats (FDP), led by Christian Lidner, understand just how strong their position is. They don't have to make a bad deal with Merkel to get a seat at the table only to have to share it with the ideologically-opposite Greens. They can force a re-vote, see their standing rise, along with AfD and go for a far bigger piece of the pie. But, ultimately, if Merkel's CDU/CSU coalition party is to stay together, and there's no guarantee of that anymore, it will have to dump Merkel herself if it wants to survive as a voting bloc.

US labels Venezuela a global threat at UN, EU approves arms embargo "IndyWatch Feed World"

The US chaired an informal meeting at the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) Monday to discuss the situation in Venezuela despite a boycott from leading members such as China and Russia. "The crisis in Venezuela today poses a direct threat to international peace and security. Venezuela is an increasingly violent narco-state that threatens the region, the hemisphere, and the world, "Washington's ambassador to the UN, Nikki Haley, declared during the session. Also present at the meeting were Organization of American States Secretary General Luis Almagro and UN High Commissioner Human Rights Prince Zeid bin Ra'ad, both vocal critics of the government in Caracas. The meeting was also boycotted by Bolivia and Egypt, who objected to Washington's interference in Venezuelan internal affairs. "The situation in Venezuela is an issue that is entirely the responsibility of Venezuelans and of course does not constitute a threat to international peace and security," said Bolivian UN Ambassador Sacha Llorenty at a press conference alongside his Russian, Chinese, and Venezuelan counterparts Monday.

Rare oarfish discovered on beach in Kingston, South Australia "IndyWatch Feed World"

A rare discovery washed up on Kingston's shore last week. The remains of an Oarfish was discovered on the Kingston beach by Sharryn Tiller and her dog Hugo on November 11. Living in the deep sea, the fish is rarely seen and its behaviour not widely studied, and it is believed to have inspired tales of sea serpents. "I was taking Hugo for a walk along the beach and we came across this great big dead fish," said Sharryn. "I thought what on earth is it? I stood there thinking maybe it was an eel. "But eels don't have whiskers, this fish had great long hard whiskers. "I came home and my husband was chatting to our neighbour, Dan Watson and I mentioned what I had seen on the beach.

Trump's 'sanctuary cities' EO deemed unconstitutional, blocked in US court "IndyWatch Feed World"

A US judge berated and ruled President Donald Trump's "sanctuary cities" executive order unconstitutional. Cities that do not fully comply with federal immigration enforcement are still entitled to billions of dollars in federal money, the judge found. On Monday evening, US District Court Judge William Orrick, of California's Northern District, slammed one of President Donald Trump's first executive orders. Executive Order 13768, titled "Enhancing Public Safety in the Interior of the United States," was determined to be "unconstitutional on its face," the judge wrote, according to documents obtained by USA Today. Trump's order denied not only federal grants, but also federal funding for local jurisdictions with policies against cooperating or assisting federal immigration officers in identifying or detaining illegal immigrants. These so-called "sanctuary cities" or "sanctuary jurisdictions" have risen in number for several years, but they fall under a broad category. San Francisco County and Santa Clara County claimed they were at risk of losing $2 billion in federal funds under the January 25 executive order. They argued that the executive order was unconstitutional, because it violated the separation of powers between the executive and legislative branches of government.

Ankara threatens to disable US radar over F-35 deal ban, blind Israeli defense "IndyWatch Feed World"

An editorial in a Turkish conservative pro-government newspaper said Ankara could leave Israel exposed to an Iranian missile attack by disabling a US radar station, in retaliation for a possible Washington ban on the purchase of F-35 fighter jets. The editorial was published on Sunday by the Yeni Safak newspaper in apparent response to concerns voiced by a US Air Force official. Heidi Grant, the deputy undersecretary of the USAF for international affairs, had earlier said that Turkey's deployment of the Russian-made S-400 long-range anti-aircraft missile system may expose vulnerabilities of the US-made F-35 Lightning II fighter jets. Turkey plans to purchase over 100 of the advanced warplanes from Lockheed Martin. The newspaper called the implication that the planned deal may be frozen "blackmail" by Washington, and suggested that in retaliation Ankara could dismantle the Kurecik radar station. The powerful AN/TPY-2 X-band early-warning radar, which was set up by the US in the eastern province of Malatya in 2012, is part of NATO's system of airspace surveillance in the region. The newspaper says that unlike similar surveillance sites in Israel, Jordan, Qatar and the UAE, the Kurecik radar station can detect missile launches from the entire western part of Iran. With the site disabled, that airspace would no longer be properly monitored by NATO, the editorial said.

Six years post NATO 'intervention': Libya is home to slave trade "IndyWatch Feed World"

NATO's military intervention in Libya in 2011 has justifiably earned its place in history as an indictment of Western foreign policy and a military alliance that, since the collapse of the Soviet Union, has been deployed as its sword. The destruction of Libya will forever be an indelible stain on the reputations of those countries involved. But now, with the revelation that people are being sold as slaves in Libya (yes, you read that right - in 2017 the slave trade is alive and kicking Libya), the cataclysmic disaster to befall the country has been compounded to the point where it is hard to conceive of it ever being able to recover - and certainly not anywhere near its former status as a high development country, as the UN labeled Libya in 2010, a year prior to the "revolution." Back in 2011, it was simply inconceivable that the UK, the US and France would ignore the lessons of Iraq in 2003, just nine years previously. Yet ignore them they did, highlighting their rapacious obsession with maintaining hegemony over a region that sits atop an ocean of oil; this regardless of the human cost and legacy of disaster and chaos this particular obsession has wrought. When former UK Prime Minister David Cameron descended on Benghazi in eastern Libya in the summer of 2011, basking in the glory of the country's victorious "revolution" in the company of his French counterpart Nicolas Sarkozy, he did so imbued with the belief he had succeeded in establishing his legacy as a leader on the global stage. Like Blair before him, he'd won his war and now was intent on partaking of its political and geopolitical spoils. Cameron told the crowd, "Your city was an inspiration to the world, as you threw off a dictator and chose freedom."

FLASHBACK: Japan Said It Would Take One Million Men 100 Years To Take This Fortified Atoll, A Few Thousand US Marines Did It In Three Days "IndyWatch Feed World"

Marines-300x300

Seventy-four years ago, the U.S. Marines waged war against Japanese forces across the Tarawa atoll in the Gilbert Islands.

Japanese Admiral Keiji Shibasaki, commander of the highly-fortified garrison on Betio Island, was reportedly so confident in his position that he claimed it would take one million men 100 years to take control of the atoll.

The U.S. Marines took it in three days, but it was, according to one historian, the toughest battle in Marine Corps history, Business Insider introduced.

The Battle of Tarawa, the first target of the broader Central Pacific campaign in World War II and part of Operation Galvanic, began on November 20, 1943 as 18,000 U.S. Marines stormed the beaches at Betio, Tarawas largest island defended by around 4,500 Japanese troops, many of which were first-rate troops, as well as mines, barbed wire, machine gun nests and pillboxes, and various heavy artillery.

As Tarawa was the most fortified atoll the U.S. would invade during the Pacific campaign, the brutal battle proved to be much more difficult than U.S. troops initially expected.

Before the Marines made their assault, the Navy opened fire on the beach defenses with repeated bombardments, but the Navy warships failed to eliminate the vast majority of the Japanese defenses.

President Trump at risk of a creeping coup "IndyWatch Feed World"

President Trump is being attacked from all sides. On Nov.18, Air Force General John Hyten, commander of the US Strategic Command (STRATCOM), told an audience at the Halifax International Security Forum in Nova Scotia, Canada, that he would resist President Donald Trump if he ordered an "illegal" launch of nuclear weapons. It's up to the general to decide if the order is legal or illegal! This is an extraordinary statement coming from a top official on active service! And it does not look like the general is going to resign or retire. It means he can afford it with no consequences to face. The statement came after Senate held the first congressional hearing in more than four decades on the president's authority to launch a nuclear strike. Some senators want legislation to alter the nuclear authority of the US president. Questions were raised about Trump's authority to wage war, use nuclear weapons and enter into or end international agreements after he made threats to strike North Korea. The president's taunting tweets aimed at Pyongyang have sparked concerns primarily among congressional Democrats that he may be inciting a war. "We are concerned that the President of the United States is so unstable, is so volatile, has a decision-making process that is so quixotic that he might order a nuclear weapons strike that is wildly out of step with US national security interests," said US Sen. Chris Murphy, D-Connecticut.

ESPN is expected to cut millions of dollars in salaries when layoffs happen in the near future. Sporting News is reporting ESPN will slash about $80 million in salaries and other costs when the third round of layoffs in two years come down after Thanksgiving and before Christmas. The network reportedly plans to part ways with over 100 staffers. The latest round of layoffs is expected to impact positions on the television side, producers, executives and those in digital and technology, according to Sports Illustrated. SportsCenter is expected to be "hit hard" by the cuts and current on-air talent could soon be unemployed. This past April, ESPN laid off over 100 reporters and personalities, including big-name talents such as Trent Dilfer, Ed Werder and Danny Kanell.

Israel to cut off Palestinian access to spring, steal more land, by moving checkpoint deeper into West Bank "IndyWatch Feed World"

Residents in al-Walaja are well versed in Israeli planning law. The small village has been in legal battles against Israel's separation wall, land confiscation and home demolitions for decades. This week Israeli authorities added another battle to the ongoing lists of obstacles faced by the rural village. On Nov. 12, Israeli forces issued notices to Palestinians living in the area that the closest Israeli military checkpoint to the village, one of the two checkpoints between the Bethlehem district and Jerusalem, will be moved further into the West Bank, annexing more of al-Walaja land. According to the notices, residents have 15 days to challenge the order. Firas al-Atrash, a member of the Local Council of al-Walaja, told Mondoweiss that moving the checkpoint according to Israel's plans would have devastating effects on the farming village. "Moving the checkpoint means that the Israel will take over around 1200 dunams (296 acres) of the land village, and prevent landowners to from accessing their land located behind the wall, including the Ein Al-Haniya spring and archaeological site," al-Atrash said.

Small news outlets can have large effects - Harvard study finds "IndyWatch Feed World"

Even small publishers have a large effect on the national discourse, according to a new paper published in Science on the effects of news. "Exposure to the news media," the study states, "causes Americans to take public stands on specific issues, join national policy conversations, and express themselves publicly." Comment: With this in mind, this must be why the bigger outlets publish nonsense like: Propaganda: Newsweek smears Donald Trump with Charles Manson comparison The research aims to quantify the effect of news media. Put in terms that are increasingly common when talking about journalism: What is the impact of news organizations? The act of publishing news is influential in still-surprising and robust ways. The study by Harvard professor Gary King and collaborators found that a few, mostly small news outlets publishing simultaneously in a broad area of public policy concern increased the volume of conversation on social media by 19 percent the day after publication. Over a full week, the volume was increased 63 percent relative to the average day's volume. The number of unique authors increased as well, and the composition of opinion changed in the direction of the published articles.

FCC Unveils Plan To Roll Back Net Neutrality Rules "IndyWatch Feed World"

net neutrality comparison

The Trump administration has just set in motion a plan to repeal virtually all of the U.S. governments existing net neutrality rules a move that could soon deliver a major deregulatory win to telecom/cable giants like AT&T, Charter, Comcast and Verizon. Ironically, the move comes just as another Trump administration department, the DOJ, seems intent upon delivering a massive blow to AT&Ts efforts to acquire Time Warner.

According to a statement from FCC Chair Ajit Pai, the move is intended to return the internet to the light-touch regulatory approach established by President Clinton and a Republican Congress.

For almost twenty years, the Internet thrived under the light-touch regulatory approach established by President Clinton and a Republican Congress. This bipartisan framework led the private sector to invest $1.5 trillion building communications networks throughout the United States. And it gave us an Internet economy that became the envy of the world.

But in 2015, the prior FCC bowed to pressure from President Obama. On a party-line vote, it imposed heavy-handed, utility-style regulations upon the Internet. That decision was a mistake. Its depressed investment in building and expanding broadband networks and deterred innovation.

Today, I have shared with my colleagues a draft order that would abandon this failed approach and return to the longstanding consensus that served consumers well for decades. Under my proposal, the federal government will stop micromanaging the Internet. Instead, the FCC would simply require Internet service providers to be transparent about their practices so that consumers can buy the service plan thats best for them and entrepreneurs and other small businesses can have the technical information they need to innovate.

Additionally, as a result of my proposal, the Federal Trade Commission will once again be able to police ISPs, protect consumers, and promote competition, just as it did before 2015. Notably, my proposal will put the federal governments most experienced privacy cop, the FTC, back on the beat to protect consumers online privacy.

The CIA Documented Long-Range Planning For A Drugged And Debilitated Society: Opioids Are Perfect Fit "IndyWatch Feed World"

cia2

Note: Im reprinting a piece I wrote about a year ago. In it, youll see a CIA mind-control document that calls for drugs fulfilling certain specific requirements.

OPIOIDS SATISFY A NUMBER OF THESE REQUIREMENTS PERFECTLY.

Long ago, I interviewed John Marks, author of Search for the Manchurian Candidate, the book that exposed the CIAs MKULTRA mind-control program. He told me that in 1962, when MKULTRA supposedly ended, the CIA actually transferred the program to its Office of Research and Development, where it went completely dark.

A CIA representative told Marks there were a hundred boxes of material on the new MKULTRA, and he, Marks, would never see any of it, no matter how many FOIA requests he made. (The Underground, Jon Rappoport)

Plans for guiding the world can be formed and launched a long, long time before we see the results. Dont assume cause and effect are merely and only short-term. Thats an unwarranted idea. (The Underground)

Drugs to transform individualsand even, by implication, society.

Drug research going far beyond the usual brief descriptions of MKULTRA.

The intention is there, in the record.

A CIA document was included in the transcript of the 1977 US Senate Hearings on MKULTRA, the CIAs mind-control program.

The document is found in Appendix C, starting on page 166. Its simply labeled Draft, dated 5 May 1955.

It begins: A portion of the Research and Development Program of [CIAs] TSS/Chemical Division is devoted to the discovery of the following materials and methods:

What followed was a list of hoped-for drugs and their uses.

Im printing, below, the list of the 1955 intentions of the CIA regarding their own drug research. The range of those intentions is stunning. All statements are direct quotes from the Draft document.

Some of my comments gleaned from studying the list:

The CIA wanted to find substances which would promote illogical thinking and impulsiveness. Serious consideration should be given to the idea that psychiatric medications, food additives, pesticides, and industrial chemicals (like fluorides) would eventually satisfy that requirement. [OPIOIDS WORK FOR PART OF THIS AGENDA]

The CIA wanted to find chemicals that would produce the signs and symptoms of recognized diseases in a reversible way. This suggests many possibilitiesamong them the use of drugs to fabricate diseases and thereby give the false impression of germ-caused epidemics....

Russia Confirms Toxic Cloud Of "Extremely High" Radiation; Source Remains A Mystery "IndyWatch Feed World"

One month after a mysterious radiation cloud was observed over Europe, whose source remained unknown last week speculation emerged that it may have been the result of a "nuclear accident" in Russia or Kazakhstan, on Tuesday Russian authorities on Tuesday confirmed the previous reports of a spike in radioactivity in the air over the Ural Mountains. In a statement, the Russian Meteorological Service said that it recorded the release of Ruthenium-106 in the southern Urals in late September and classified it as "extremely high contamination."
Earlier this month, France's nuclear safety agency earlier this month said that it recorded a spike in radioactivity, and said that "the most plausible zone of release" of this radioactive material "lies between the Volga and the Urals" from a suspected accident involving nuclear fuel or the production of radioactive material. The agency noted, however, that it is impossible to determine the exact point of release given the available data. Luckily, it said the release of the isotope Ruthenium-106 posed no health or environmental risks to European countries.

Air China ends flights to North Korea, nobody wants to go "IndyWatch Feed World"

Beijing-owned Air China airline has ended flights to the capital of North Korea, Pyongyang, due to a lack of passenger demand. Flights were "temporarily suspended due to unsatisfactory business operations," said an Air China employee, as quoted by AP. The suspension means North Korea's Air Koryo is the only airline, which connects the country to China. Its website lists flights to Beijing, Shanghai, Shenyang, and Dandong in China and Vladivostok in Russia. In April, Air China said it was cutting the frequency of flights to its isolated neighbor. Some other Chinese airlines offered charter services to the country, but those have been scrapped as well. Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman, Lu Kang, said he had no information about the news, but any such decisions would be made based on the "state of operation and the market," he said. The UN Security Council unanimously imposed new sanctions on North Korea. China said it would enforce them. According to a Reuters report, as of the end of October, China has significantly cut coal, lead, and iron ore imports from the North, which are crucial for Pyongyang's economy. Lead ore imports dropped 84 percent, iron ore shipments plunged 98 percent, and coal imports were down 71.6 percent from a year earlier. China also stopped selling gasoline and diesel to North Korea at the end of June over concerns the country would fail to pay for the goods. The restrictions are still in force, Reuters reports. The October data showed trade between the world's second-largest economy and its northern neighbor was $412 million, the lowest since April.

Cop arrested for tampering with breathalyzers, 20,000 DWI cases affected "IndyWatch Feed World"

More than 20,000 drivers in the state of New Jersey could have DWI charges wiped from their record because a police officer was caught tampering with multiple breathalyzer machines. Last year, Sgt. Marc Dennis, a coordinator in the New Jersey State Police Alcohol Drug Testing Unit, was accused of skipping a vital step in the calibration of breathalyzers on multiple occasions. It has not been specified in police reports whether or not Dennis had malicious intent. However, given how quickly criminal charges were brought against him, it seems that this is far more than a simple oversight. While Dennis denies the accusations, he was allegedly identified tampering with these machines on three separate occasions. Lt. Brian Polite, a spokesman for the State Police, said in a statement after the arrest that a supervisor at the police department witnessed Dennis committing these crimes and reported him immediately. "Once it was determined that there was a possibility of criminal charges being filed, it was then referred to Division of Criminal Justice," Polite said.

Antarctica once had a forest and researchers are trying to figure out why it disappeared. During Antarctica's summer, from late November through January, UW-Milwaukee geologists Erik Gulbranson and John Isbell climbed the McIntyre Promontory's frozen slopes in the Transantarctic Mountains. High above the ice fields, they combed the mountain's gray rocks for fossils from the continent's green, forested past. By the trip's end, the geologists had found fossil fragments of 13 trees. The discovered fossils reveal that the trees are over 260 million years old, meaning that this forest grew at the end of the Permian Period, before the first dinosaurs.

Scientists discover gold literally grows on trees "IndyWatch Feed World"

Money might not grow on trees, but scientists have confirmed that gold is found in the leaves of some plants. Scientists from Australia's national science agency, the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO), have proved that the leaves of certain eucalyptus trees contain minute amounts of the precious metal that have been naturally absorbed. Eucalypts in the Kalgoorlie region of Western Australia and the Eyre Peninsula in South Australia are drawing up water containing gold particles from the earth via their roots and depositing it in their leaves and branches. One of the authors of the paper, the CSIRO geochemist Dr Mel Lintern, said some eucalyptus root systems dived down deeper than 30m, through much of the sediment that sits on top of solid ore-bearing rock. The tree acts "as a hydraulic pump ... drawing up water containing the gold", he said. "As the gold is likely to be toxic to the plant, it is moved to the leaves and branches where it can be released or shed to the ground."

Star Smacked: America has become a nation of groupies, taking bullets for our idols "IndyWatch Feed World"

Politics is the root of most of this world's problems. It's sad when you think about it; some families are broken, friendships lost and marriages are set asunder for something as petty as political differences and ideological divergences. At the core of this issue is the need too many of us have to deify political idols and elevate people we don't know or never met as gods to worship. I don't know what it is about humanity; the very same people who are neglected, and even exploited, by the rich and famous feel the need to offer more of our backs to the gentry and beg to be stepped on. Actually, I kind have an inkling of an idea why we seemingly become a collective of masochists when it comes to groveling before the gentry. We put the rich and famous on pedestals because we too want to be rich and famous by derivative. This same theme was touched upon by a rabbi at 6th and I synagogue in DC I visited a couple of years ago-I'm a bit of a free spirit when it comes to exploring people's faiths. The rabbi noted that our egos and our desire to be acknowledged makes us glom on to those who are famous because it makes us feel that we too are important by extension. When we take pictures with a famous personality or a movie star, we do so mostly to show off our exploits to others. Our need to be noticed makes us latch on to those who are noted. By the way, there is a reason the title of this article has we instead of they in it. I'm not separating myself from the rest; I too fall victim to idolizing those who are elevated as stars. If someone renowned walked into this coffee shop right now while I'm writing this article, I would reflexively take a picture or at the very least gaze in astonishment. After all, it was not too long ago that I was a political parrot and a toady of Democrats [read My Political Awakening]. True enough, two years of wandering the wilderness has made me a lot less reverential of the rich and famous and a lot more admiring of broken strangers, but I would be a liar if I tried to pretend that I'm not occasionally in awe of people solely because of their notoriety.

Propaganda: Newsweek smears Donald Trump with Charles Manson comparison "IndyWatch Feed World"

"Manson was able to speak in a way that engaged those who felt marginalized or alienated," Newsweek's Melissa Matthews contends in an article titled "How Murderer Charles Manson and Donald Trump Used Language to Gain Followers." She then quotes a former president of the American Psychoanalytic Association, Mark Smaller, who tells her: "Our current president speaks in an emotional or affective way to large numbers of people in our country who feel a kind of alienation or disconnection from the government." Comment: Barrack Obama did exactly the same. In fact, nearly every US politician does. Yes, leaders persuade and water is wet. But Donald Trump is not Charles Manson is not Donald Trump. The people playing cheerleader to Charles Manson in 1969 appeared very different from the people wearing Make America Great Again hats in 2016. One gleans the opposite impression from Newsweek. "I fell in love with Charlie Manson the first time I saw his cherub face and sparkling eyes on TV," Jerry Rubin of Chicago Seven fame proclaimed. He made the pilgrimage to Los Angeles County Jail to rap with Manson for three hours. The disruptive tactics Rubin and his six co-defendants used in their trial in the Windy City Manson and his three co-defendants plagiarized in their trial in the City of Angels. "His words and courage inspired us," Rubin reflected of the serial killer. "Manson's soul is easy to touch because it lays quite bare on the surface."

October was an especially brutal month when it comes to the tally of people killed by police in this country, particularly for people of color. I emphasize people of color because my lifelong research on this topic tells me that their killings are not random, but rather are a result of dehumanization and the constant patrolling of bodies and communities of color, especially those of Native, Black and Brown peoples. Unfortunately, this is not a new phenomenon. This pattern of killings with impunity has been ongoing since 1492. Regardless of whether the killings are random or targeted, the number of law enforcement killings in this country is unparalleled anywhere else in the "developed" world. Killedbypolice.net (KBP) lists 93 people killed in the month of October. For September, the number was "only" 84. Let that sink in; that is more than three per day, and November is on the same pace.

Chicago cop sentenced to 5 years for firing 16 rounds into a car full of unarmed teens "IndyWatch Feed World"

In August, Chicago police officer Marco Proano told a jury that when he fired 16 shots into a car full of unarmed teenagers, that was not threatening him, he was just doing his job. However, the dashcam video was so 'gruesome' that a jury did not agree. After only a 4 hour deliberation, Proana became the exception to the rule by actually getting convicted for his crimes. Proano was found guilty on two felony counts of using excessive force in violating the victims' civil rights. He was facing a maximum of 10 years in prison on each count but moments ago, he was sentenced to just 5 years. Given Chicago's irresponsible and incredible ability to utterly fail at holding violent cops accountable, the sentence is surprisingly lengthy and precedent-setting. Comment: Cop convicted of two felonies after leaked video shows him firing 16 rounds into a car of unarmed teenagers During the sentencing, U.S. District Judge Gary Feinerman rejected Proano's argument that he was forced to shoot at the car to save a teen's life. The judge said that at the time of the shooting, Proano "was not a police officer . . . He was the source of chaos and violence."

Could Your Doctor Be Lying To You? "IndyWatch Feed World"

By Avery T. Phillips, Truth Theory

No one likes being lied to. But we can all agree that some lies are bigger than others. With some only leaving a slight bruise to the ego, but the more extreme having worse consequences. We can say that everyone makes mistakes and that some mistakes are more costly than others. Spilling a cup of milk is less worrisome than, lets say, forgetting your child at the park.

However, when you make a mistake and lie or fail to inform the affected people about said mistake, things start turning from morally ambiguous to morally corrupt. When you are in a position where lives are at stake, it is imperative that you strive to minimize even eliminate mistakes and display complete honesty to anyone seeking your services. Sadly, this is not always the case with doctors and insurance companies. Medical malpractice suits in which a doctor, nurse, or pharmaceutical company make a mistake due to some form of negligence leading to the injury or even death of a patient are quite typical in the US.

Philadelphia neurologist accused of sexually abusing patients and withholding medications for non-compliance "IndyWatch Feed World"

Seventeen women from New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania are accusing a prominent neurologist of using his sought-after treatments as leverage to extract sexual favors. The women claim that Dr. Ricardo Cruciani, 63, former chairman of the neurology department at Drexel University in Pennsylvania, has abused his patients going back more than a decade. He will appear in Philadelphia court Tuesday on charges he assaulted seven patients last year alone. The remaining women have filed separate police reports or hired lawyers for civil suits. The victims, ages 31 to 55, described a pervy bedside manner that includes unwanted touching and kissing, as well as being coerced into oral sex. Another said he masturbated in front of her - even as she declined his advances.

Can We Use Village Mentality To Shift The Collective Consciousness? "IndyWatch Feed World"

By Rob Howe, Truth Theory

Across the globe we are undergoing a period of great transition. We are moving from one reality into another. From an ecological perspective we can see that we are moving into a paradigm of sustainability. To be successful in our transition its important we relate and behave towards the world, ourselves and each other differently to what we are presently accustomed to.

Our sustainable future depends on a collective shift in consciousness that sees us switch from external to internal yardsticks in our decision making. We become less concerned by materialism and are guided by a sense of inner rightness: does this seem right? Am I being true to myself? Is this in line with who I sense Im called to become? Am I being of service to the world?

The ultimate goal in life is not to be successful or loved, but to become the truest expression of ourselves. Life is seen as a collective unfolding toward our true nature. Instead of setting goals in our life, dictating what direction it should take, we learn to let go and listen to the life that wants to be lived through us.

This way of being is radically different to what we have grown up with and been socialised by. Education of a sustainable future has to account for this evolution in consciousness and being aiding individuals and groups, not just to evolve, but to be supported in their process of living and unfolding as well. From this point of view we see that formal structures, which presently exist, are too limited in their scope of support. They operate from a lower form of consciousness, which weve begun to outgrow and transcend.

Our thriving is dependent on our reconnection with village, not of place, but a village of relationships, interests and roles. Vill...

The Power Of Saffron For Mental Health "IndyWatch Feed World"

The Power Of Saffron For Mental Health | saffron | Natural Medicine Special Interests

Saffron is an extravagant, sweet-smelling spice commonly used in Indian, Turkish, and Persian cuisine and is closely related to turmeric. Its use in traditional health approaches has spanned thousands of years, and modern research seems to back up its commonly-reported benefits. Like any spice, saffron may be a formidable force against internal swelling and irritation in the body. For years, research has also linked this red grass-like spice with mood health, showing it could be a powerful tool against varying forms of depression.

Saffron for Mental Health: A Depression Fighter?

While it may not be a one-size-fits-all approach, saffron supplementation may be helpful for some people in regulating mood and mental health. A recent meta-analysis examining the years of saffron research has found many clinical trials suggest the spice could improve the symptoms of depression. [1] The exact mechanisms behind which saffron exhibits beneficial effects against mood-related disorders is largely unknown; however, its hypothesized that it may be due to its antioxidant content.

Civilian deaths: US war records can't keep up "IndyWatch Feed World"

Anyone willing to think carefully and critically about the use of armed force against a target such as Islamic State (ISIS) would do well to read the intensively researched piece in the New York Times by investigative journalist Azmat Khan and Arizona State professor Anand Gopal about civilian casualties from the air war waged by the U.S.-led coalition in Iraq. The key conclusion is that those casualties are far higher-probably many times higher-than what the U.S. military acknowledges. Such a discrepancy has been suspected for some time, based on earlier work by private organizations that comb press reports and other publicly available information from afar. Khan and Gopal went beyond that work by selecting three areas in Nineveh province as samples in which they performed an exhaustive on-the-ground investigation, interviewing hundreds of residents and sifting through the rubble of bombed structures. They compared such direct evidence, incident by incident, with what the responsible U.S. military command said it had in its records about airstrikes it had conducted in the area and the results of those airstrikes.

8 Shifts We Need To Create An Empowering Education System "IndyWatch Feed World"

By Rob Howe, Truth Theory

Mainstream, formal education moulds every person within it to become a compliant, consuming worker. We are taught (passive reception of knowledge deposited into our empty minds) to think, see, imagine and relate to the world in a very particular way. Mainstream, formal education does not concern itself with aiding our personal and collective evolution. Instead it intends to preserve the status quo which we all feel the effects of.

It will take large scale catastrophe and shock to alter formal educations current trajectory and aims. But until then, the work of guiding meaningful education falls upon the shoulders of NGOs, grassroots community activists, as well as charitable organisations such as The Eden Project.

Its easy to criticise, but another matter entirely to construct a working solution to education. Ive expressed the belief in the first blog of this series, that disconnection is at the heart of our unsustainable culture. Therefore, the primary purpose of an education system in a sustainable world is to connect:

A person with themselves

A person to their community

A person and community to nature

A Mysterious 3,000-Year-Old Castle Was Discovered Underwater In A Turkish Lake "IndyWatch Feed World"

uraratufortress

A mysterious castle estimated to be about 3,000 years old was just discovered underwater in a lake in Turkey. After a decade of searching the Middle Easts second largest lake, the home of a lost kingdom has been found hundreds of meters beneath the surface.

Archaeologists from the Van Yznc Yl University announced the incredible discovery after working closely with an independent team of divers to find their prize. What they found was a vast 3,000-year-old castle preserved deep within Lake Van in amazing condition.

Lost underwater cities and castles are a popular motif in folklore and local legend around the world. Indeed, so are stories of ancient lost monsters hiding in deep lakes.

Tahsin Ceylan, head of the diving team on the project, first came in search of the Lake Van Monster, but uncovered a lost city instead.

There was a rumor that there might be something under the water but most archaeologists and museum officials told us that we wont find anything, he told Daily Sabah. Science Alert

The researchers believe that this wonderful discovery is that of an Iron Age relic of the lost Urartu civilization, also called the Kingdom of Van, which thrived in the region from the 9th to the 6th centuries BCE. The castle spans around a kilometer, with walls standing as high as 3 or 4 meters. It was kept in good condition by the alkaline waters of the lake.

Many civilizations and people had settled around Lake Van, Ceylan said. They named the lake the upper sea a...

The purge of the Satanic Khazarian cabal that turned the West evil is accelerating at an undeniable pace. Most importantly, Pentagon sources confirm multiple Internet reports that Marines stormed the CIA headquarters this past weekend. One of the aims was to shut down Operation Mockingbird, the CIA group that turned the mass media, as well as Google, Facebook, etc. into mass mind-control propaganda, say NSA sources.

These moves, combined with the purge of all the Saudi royals and military who were linked to 9/11, as well as the removal of Zimbabwe dictator Robert Mugabe and the imminent removal of Israeli satanist Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu, leave no doubt that the long-awaited arrests and roundups of cabalists worldwide has begun.

The Rothschild/Saxe Gotha family group is also losing control over Europe. In Germany, Chancellor Angela Merkel (Hitlers daughter) failed to form a new government. In France, a hundred legislators from Rothschild-slave President Emmanuel Macrons party have defected, as mass protests against this election-stealers rule break out all across the country.

Opioids Are Mind-Control Drugs MKULTRA is Alive and Well "IndyWatch Feed World"

Jon Rappoport, Guest
Waking Times

Wikipedia: [MKULTRA was] the code name given to a program of experiments on human subjects, at times illegal, designed and undertaken by the United States Central Intelligence Agency. Experiments on humans were intended to identify and develop drugs and procedures to be used in interrogations and torture in order to weaken the individual to force confessions through mind controlMKUltra used numerous methodologies to manipulate peoples mental states and alter brain functions, including the surreptitious administration of drugs (especially LSD) and other chemicals

A worldwide population enslaved to mind-control drugsthis is a dream that exceeds the fantasies of the old CIA MKULTRA warriors. And its here.

A few adverse effects of opioids: sedation, psychological dependence, physical addiction, hallucinations, delirium, brain fog, lowered level of consciousness, and thus, increased suggestibility.

Opioid effects may not be as overtly dramatic as those of MKULTRA LSD, but the overall impact on the mind is just as severe.

As Ive shown in past articles, a major pipeline for opioids starts at the top of the food chain: pharma manufacturers like Purdue and Insys, who are traffickers. (note to reader: Opioid archive here.)

This follows the pattern of LSD, which in the 1960s was manufactured by Sandoz (and then obtained in large quantities by the CIA for MKULTRA). However, now, there is no need for the CIA. Huge shipments of opioids go directly to rogue pharmacies and pain clinics, who are lower level dealers, and then on to addicts.

Mind control has gone public in a huge wayfar beyond the reach of LSD in the 1960s and 70s.

In fact, Congress and former President Barack Obama have played a major role in protection of the pharmaceutical traffickers. This assist occurred in April of 2016, when a new law was passed and signed by Obama: Ensuring Patient Access and Effective Drug Enforcement Act of 2016...

Will America's renegade wars ever cease? "IndyWatch Feed World"

Seventy-seven million people in North and South Korea find themselves directly in the line of fire from the threat of a Second Korean War. The rest of the world is recoiling in horror from the scale of civilian casualties such a war would cause and the unthinkable prospect that either side might actually use nuclear weapons. Since the first Korean War killed at least 20 percent of North Korea's population and left the country in ruins, the U.S. has repeatedly failed to follow through on diplomacy to establish a lasting peace in Korea and has instead kept reverting to illegal and terrifying threats of war. Most significantly, the U.S. has waged a relentless propaganda campaign to discount North Korea's legitimate defense concerns as it confronts the threat of a U.S. war machine that has only grown more dangerous since the last time it destroyed North Korea. Comment: See: Why North Korea hates AmericaThe hidden origins of the wars in Korea and Vietnam The North has lived under this threat for 65 years and has watched Iraq and Libya destroyed after they gave up their nuclear weapons programs. When North Korea discovered a U.S. plan for a Second Korean War on South Korea's military computer network in September 2016, its leaders quite rationally concluded that a viable nuclear deterrent is the only way to guarantee their country's safety.

Don't just give thanks. Pay it forward one act of kindness at a time "IndyWatch Feed World"

"As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them."-John F. Kennedy It's been a hard, heart-wrenching, stomach-churning kind of year filled with violence and ill will. It's been a year of hotheads and blowhards and killing sprees and bloodshed and takedowns. It's been a year in which tyranny took a step forward and freedom got knocked down a few notches. It's been a year with an abundance of bad news and a shortage of good news. It's been a year of too much hate and too little kindness. Now we find ourselves approaching that time of year when, as George Washington and Abraham Lincoln proclaimed, we're supposed to give thanks as a nation and as individuals for our safety and our freedoms. It's not an easy undertaking. How do you give thanks for freedoms that are constantly being eroded? How do you express gratitude for one's safety when the perils posed by the American police state grow more treacherous by the day? How do you come together as a nation in thanksgiving when the powers-that-be continue to polarize and divide us into warring factions? It's not going to happen overnight. Or with one turkey dinner. Or with one day of thanksgiving. Thinking good thoughts, being grateful, counting your blessings and adopting a glass-half-full mindset are fine and good, but don't stop there. This world requires doers, men and women (and children) who will put those good thoughts into action. It says a lot (and nothing good) about the state of our world and the meanness that seems to have taken center stage that we now have a day (World Kindness Day) devoted to making the world more collectively human in thoughts and actions. The idea for the day started after a college president in Japan was mugged in a public place and nobody helped him. Unfortunately, you hear about these kinds of incidents too often.

Report: Deep State Planning False Flag Cyber Attack To Blame On Russia "IndyWatch Feed World"

032717ciansa

CIA, NSA capable of false flag cyber attacks, according to Vault 7 & other revelations.

The deep state is considering a cyber false flag to blame on Russia to salvage the anti-Trump Russian collusion narrative, intelligence sources told Infowars:

Weve known for years that the NSA, in particular, is capable of false flag attacks that can be blamed on any state actor, thanks to a 2010 Defcon speech by former NSA expert Charlie Miller.

It will make attribution [of the real culprit] really hard because youll be able to attack from a thousand different places, and from all over the world and theyre not going to know who you are, he said.

Theoretically, the agency can launch bot attacks from computers it controls in other countries and then blame the country where the computers are located.

US intelligence agencies have spent years installing malware and back-door vulnerabilities in computer networks across the world to provide itself easy access to foreign computers.

Thats the ultimate deep state false flag: control computers in Russia to attack targets in the US, then use appeal to authority arguments to declare that US intelligence experts have determined the attacks were launched by Russia.

Remember how Hillary Clinton once claimed that 17 intelligence agencies agreed that Russian hackers interfered in the presidential election, a claim that was later debunked?

And, according to the Vault 7 revelations published by Wikileaks, the CIA is also able to stage fake Russian hacking attacks.

Britain will give France extra cash to bolster the UK border at Calais after a surge in attempted illegal crossings. Migrants and refugees spend their days huddled under bridges around the French port, hoping to smuggle themselves into the UK. Sources in France told The Times that ministers are looking to spend 80 million ($106 million) on a renewed security contract for the Eurotunnel terminals at Calais, Dunkirk and Coquelles. Britain has already paid a reported 124 million ($164 million) to boost security on the other side of the channel since 2015, as the migration crisis across Europe exploded. Evidence has emerged of a rise in the number of smuggling attempts in recent weeks as winter weather conditions worsen.

In The Computational Power of the Universe, Jordan does not imagine what we could learn if humanity somehow converted the entire cosmos into a vast computing device (however marvelous a science-fiction premise that idea might make). Rather, he asks, now that the universe has undergone billions of years of change in accordance with the laws of nature, can we use what we see through our telescopes to gain insights into difficult computational problems? After all, computers crunch numbers to simulate complex change. What if we consider the cosmos to be the output of a 13.7-billion year computation?

Since the 2010 Citizens United Supreme Court decision loosened certain constraints on political spending, these and other 501(c)(4) groups have become increasingly politically active while providing anonymity to their donors.

Scientists clock the incredible speed of an electron being emitted from an atom "IndyWatch Feed World"

In a unique experiment, researchers have clocked how long it takes for an electron to be emitted from an atom. The result is 0.00000000000000002 seconds, or 20 billionths of a billionth of a second. The researchers' stopwatch consists of extremely short laser pulses. Hopefully, the results will help to provide new insights into some of the most fundamental processes in nature. Researchers from Lund, Stockholm and Gothenburg in Sweden have documented the incredibly brief moment when two electrons in a neon atom are emitted. "When light hits the atom, the electrons absorb the energy from the light. An instant later the electrons are freed from the binding powers of the atom. This phenomenon, called photoionization, is one of the most fundamental processes of physics and was first theoretically mapped by Albert Einstein, who was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1921 for this particular discovery," says Marcus Isinger, doctoral student in attophysics at Lund University in Sweden.

This Simple Trick Quickly Puts An End to the Pain of a Stiff Neck "IndyWatch Feed World"

As a society, we are facing lower back and neck pain in epic proportions. Lacking solid evidence of the true causes of this pain we are left to speculate, pointing to the way that we sit at our desks all day, our bad posture, the larger purses and backpacks that we carry and other similar causes.

Male Canadian politicians walk around Ottawa in pink heels 'to draw men's attention to violence against women' (VIDEO) "IndyWatch Feed World"

As part of the 'Hope in High Heels on the Hill' (hope in high heels on the parliamentary hill), Canadian parliamentarians walked through Ottawa's center in pink high-heeled shoes. The action is aimed at ending violence against women. "Violence against women and children will not stop if boys and men are not included in the conversation or part of the decision. I am proud to have participated with male colleagues at the second annual event, Hope in High Heels on the Hill, "said Sven Spengemann, a member of the Liberal Party of the Canadian House of Commons, one of the participants in the action. The initiative of holding such an action was decided to be introduced last year by the Minister of Democratic Institutions Karina Gould after she took part in such a walk in Burlington, USA. The main purpose of such an event is to draw men's attention to the problems of women and the cessation of violence.

Gemstone Countertops Are Here, And Youll Want One After Seeing Them "IndyWatch Feed World"

By  Amanda Froelich Truth Theory

Are you looking to redesign your kitchen? If so, perhaps you should consider installing a gemstone countertop. Not only do gemstones have unique healing properties, as countertops, they turn ordinary kitchens into mesmerizing work spaces.

From countertops made with labradorite to quartz, it is clear gemstone countertops are the next hottest trend. Following are a variety of ideas to inspire your next kitchen remodel:

1) Labradorite

Labradorite is a stone of transformation, and tends to be a useful companion through change because it imparts strength and perseverance. At the same time, it balances and protects the aura, raises consciousness and grounds spiritual energies. Labradorite is also said to enhance psychic abilities.

As a gemstone countertop, the mineral adds an element of sparkle, even in the darkest of kitchens. As The Earth Child points out, the radiant stone easily integrates into designs the feature dark wood or contemporary metals.

Philip Weiss: Clinton's 90s scandals entailed violent threats to anyone who knew about his sex life "IndyWatch Feed World"

In the late 1990s my journalistic career got a flat tire when I became wrapped up in the Clinton scandals. Good liberal friends told me I was overzealous or helping the other side. I had been assigned to write an article for the New York Times Magazine about Why People Hate Bill Clinton so much, but instead of doing a cultural examination of red state resistance to his social agenda, which is what the editors wanted, I went native in Arkansas and took his accusers seriously. Today the Clinton scandals are getting a rehearing because of the revolution that is taking place in our mores, and in the structure of the patriarchy itself, due to the sexual harassment scandals that are felling powerful men. Many of these scandals mirror elements of the Clinton story. When Lindsey Graham asked in the House, Is this Peyton Place or Watergate? we said, Watergate. It was never just about a blowjob. The two signature moments of the Clinton scandals both involve threats and sex. And anyone exploring these scandals 20 years on needs to reckon with these moments. First, when civil servant Linda Tripp came to her desk in the Pentagon public affairs office on a day in 1998 after it had come out that she was cooperating with an investigation of Clinton's sexual conduct (the Paula Jones case), she found a sheet left on her chair reprinting the famous Clinton "body count." This was a list of people close to the Clintons or their political machine who had died. Tripp said she believed that her office-mate, Monica Lewinsky, left the list on her chair- Lewinsky, who was close to the Clintons and of course was Bill Clinton's former lover.

Anti-money grabbing Leonardos (?) painting sold for $450 million "IndyWatch Feed World"

Salvator Mundi

By Sandy English in the USA:

Leonardo painting auctioned for $450 million

21 November 2017

On November 15, a painting attributed to the Florentine artist and polymath, Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519), sold at Christies auction house New York City for $450.3 million dollars, including fees. This is the highest price ever paid for a painting at a public auction. The buyer has remained anonymous, but observers have narrowed the list down to some 150 multi-billionaires.

The painting, Salvator Mundi (Savior of the World, c. 1500), depicts Jesus Christ in Renaissance garb holding a globe of the world in his right hand and raising his left hand in a gesture of benediction. It was commissioned by King Louis XII of France (1462-1515) over 500 years ago.

In recent times, the painting, not then thought to be by Leonardo, was purchased for a mere $10,000 at a New Orleans estate sale in 2005. It eventually ended up, after several transactions, in the hands of the billionaire Russian oligarch Dmitry Rybolovlev, who purchased it for $127 million. His estate then sold it to Christies, which took the painting on a world tour as part of its marketing campaign. In 20 minutes of bidding on November 15, the price climbed from over $100 million to the final sum.

The painting has been heavily restored, and its authenticity and provenance have been hotly contested by some, but, as critics have pointed out, now that it has sold for nearly half a billion dollars, it must surely be a Leonardo! It will now be the only one of...

Late-Stage Capitalism: Denying the Imperium of Death "IndyWatch Feed World"

Opinion According to a nationwide study conducted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), a greater number of U.S. Americans died (approximately 65,000) from drug overdoses last year than were killed during the course of the Vietnam War.

At the start of the U.S. invasion of Iraq in 2003, President George W. Bush ordered the U.S. military to conduct a devastating aerial assault on Baghdad, known as shock and awe.

All part and parcel of capitalisms war against life itself. The emotional and physical pain, anxiety, and depression inflicted by the trauma inherent to a system sustained by perpetual exploitation has proven to be too much for a sizeable number of human beings to endure thus their need to self-medicate.

The root of addiction is trauma. The soul of the nation is a casualty of war. There is not an Arlington Cemetery for these fallen, no hagiographic ceremonies will be performed over their graves nor statues erected in memoriam. Their ghosts will howl through the long, dark night of national denial. Listen to their wailing. It is an imprecatory prayer. A curse and augury that admonishes, our fate and the fate of the nation will converge as the nation will stagger, keening in lament, to the abyss.

The solution: Within each of us swells a deathless song. Powerful. Resonate. Piercing. A song, miraculous of influence, plangent with the force to seize back your soul from the death-besotted spirit of the age. Let it rise from within you. Notice: how flocks of empires death birds scatter like ashes in the wind.

Yet it will not be possible to navigate around the cultural deathscape; we must walk through it and chronicle its serial affronts to our humanity:

You have to see that the buildings are anorexic, you have to see that the language is schizogenic, that normalcy is manic, and medicine and business are paranoid. James Hillman

Try this: Simply stand in the isle of a corporate, Big Box chain store or in the parking lot of a strip mall that squats, hideous, on some soul-defying, U.S. Interstate highway and allow yourself to feel the emptiness and desperation extant. The tormented landscape, besieged by an ad hoc assemblage of late capitalist structures, emporiums of usurped longing, reflects the desperate, rapacious nature of late capitalist imperium.

Compounding the pathos, the forces in play impose a colonizing effect upon the mind; therefore, a large percent of the afflicted have lost the ability to detect the hyper-entropic systems ravaging effects. Stranded among the commercial come-ons and hyper-authoritarianism inherent to late-stage capitalis...

'Not a sausage': Boris Johnson admits again there's no evidence of Russian interference in British politics "IndyWatch Feed World"

Boris Johnson has once again admitted to MPs there is no evidence Russia has ever sought to interfere with British votes. The foreign secretary's comments come just days after Theresa May was also forced to reject allegations Russia interfered in Brexit. Despite both the prime minister and Johnson conceding on numerous occasions there has been no Russian involvement in British democracy, the issue continues to be raised in Parliament. Less than two weeks ago Johnson said there was "not a sausage" of evidence against Russia. Speaking in the House of Commons on Tuesday, Johnson said: "We've seen no evidence of any country successfully interfering with our robust electoral system." Without citing any evidence, he went on to say: "But we know of course that Russia seeks to undermine our institutions using disinformation to further their ends including on social media and the best guarantee against that is a free open press and an accessible media."

Colorado City To Use $1.5 Million From Pot Sales To Feed, House Homeless "IndyWatch Feed World"

By  Amanda Froelich Truth Theory

Heres a novel idea we hope catches on. Marijuana has done so much for the city of Aurora, Colorado, that $1.5 million which was generated from tax on recreational weed was used to support the homeless population. Though the news first made headlines mid-2016, we feel the development remains relevant, as cannabis is being legalized in the U.S. and elsewhere at a rapid pace.

The city made the announcement in September of 2016. Shortly after, a number of groups were designated to receive the funds. According to the Huffington Post, the city Council members will evaluate each groups progress before committing to renewing the funds after the first year.

The Colfax Community Network, a nonprofit that assists families living in motels, received $200,000 from the special funds. Two other groups the Comitis Crisis Center and Aurora Mental Health received funds to buy vans to boost their homeless outreach efforts. Each van cost between $30,000 and $44,000.

Denver Becomes First City In Colorado To Ban Declawing Of Cats "IndyWatch Feed World"

Go, Denver! The city is now the first in Colorado to pass legislation that bans the practice of declawing cats. The city Council passed the bill unanimously on Monday. As GoodNewsNetwork reports, the legislation only applies to elective declawing, meaning the surgery for medical reasons is still allowed.

Six Syrian asylum seekers suspected of being ISIS members and plotting an attack against a "public target" have been detained in a large-scale operation by police in Germany.

Some 500 officers took part in a joint raid on eight apartments in the cities of Kassel, Hannover, Essen and Leipzig early on Tuesday morning, police said in a statement.

Defense Secretary Mattis won't admit US military presence in Syria has no legal grounds "IndyWatch Feed World"

Although the US has many times stated that its target is IS only, it appears that its intentions may go beyond the stated objective. In fact, Washington is seeking to retain post-conflict zones of influence within the country, where the American presence is illegal. Asked at a press-conference on Nov. 13 if the US military will stay or leave Syria, US Defense Secretary James Mattis stated, "We're not just going to walk away right now before the Geneva process has cracked." He stressed the importance of the Geneva settlement process held under the auspices of the UN, saying "we got to get the UN-brokered effort in Geneva to take this thing forward." Answering a question about the legal grounds for the US presence in the country, the secretary explained "You know, the UN said that ISIS - basically we can go after ISIS. And we're there to take them out." The Syrian Foreign Ministry issued a firm warning to the US and other foreign forces in Syria on Nov. 14. According to it, "The presence of US forces or any foreign military presence in Syria without the consent of the Syrian government constitutes an act of aggression and an attack on the sovereignty of the Syrian Arab Republic as well as a gross violation of the charter and principles of the United Nations." In September, Deputy Foreign Minister of Syria Faisal Mekdad stated that the US "should withdraw its military; otherwise the Syrian army will consider them as a hostile force."

Its About Time Humanity Had A Grown Up Conversation About Sexuality? "IndyWatch Feed World"

BLuke Miller Truth Theory

I think it is about time we acknowledge that humanity needs to talk about sex.

Few words trigger the human mind as much as sex; our collective consciousness has been confronted with it from all angles- with the manic proliferation of the Internet, television, and advertising.

Most of us are aware of how sex is aggressively and excessively used to sell us ideas and merchandise that we dont actually need. The other day I was casually observing how sex is used to associate with the sale of burgers, perfume and to my own surprise, even funeral planning insurance.

With the rising headlines of pedophilia in Hollywood and evidence of a spiritual epidemic of rape culture with the #MeToo campaign, avoiding talking about sexual energy is no longer an option.

I want to talk about sex because of one simple fact: we deserve to remember the power of our sexual energy in service to the evolution of humanity, and we deserve to remember the power of our sexual energy in service to the healing of our planet.

For many of us, our introduction to our sexual energy was awkward as hell and reductionist; textbooks and class presentations on different pregnancy prevention methods and clinical diagrams do little to truly capture the cosmic complexity and beauty of what sexual energy truly is. In fact reducing it to biological terms is only a tiny part of the pict...

Hillary: Investigation Against Me would be

Sometimes I just want to throw up when I hear Hillary Clinton talk. After all the scandals and lies she has told over the years, she really never ceases to amaze me. When will she ever learn?

Someone should tell her, if she really wants to know What Happened?the American people just got tired of all of her lies and scandals. Its that simple.

After Hillary Clintons blame tour of her new book, What Happened it seems now more than ever she has a new scapegoat. Congratulations to Jeff Sessions! Sessions is the new scapegoat! I guess shes exhausted most of the other people she knows.

Hillary Clinton expressed that she deeply regretted that Sessions investigation into her multiple sins appeared to be the politicization of the Justice Department.

Hillary Clinton focused in on the Uranium One story, which has been slowly breaking since the 2015 book Clinton Cash showed that Hillary and her husband were the beneficiaries of large sums of money from Russians who handed over paychecks after the sale of Uranium to Russian hands was completed.

Weve only learned recently that the undercover agent who tried to warn Congress about the coziness between Hillary, then Secretary of State and Russian backers could jeopardize the legitimacy of the sale of the uranium stores, but he was prevented by the FBI from speaking out.

In the interview, Hillary dropped this straight-up lie:

This Uranium One story has been debunked countless times by members of the press, by independent experts.

It is nothing but a false charge that the Trump administration is trying to drum up in order to avoid attention being directed at them.

Lindsay Shepherd's flaw was showing a segment from the exchange that featured the person Mr. Matte was debating: Jordan Peterson These are dark days in Ontario. A three-minute news clip from the Ontario government's TV station prime time show The Agenda has roiled higher education in the province. Not everyone is blessed to live in Ontario, so perhaps not all reading this know of that worthy program. The Agenda frequently takes the format of an hour-long panel discussion, and selects its panelists with a regard for the delicacies of balance and political correctness so refined as to qualify as a fetish. It is fervently progressive, its more diligent fans - and they are numerous - are equally so. The Agenda has the quiet earnestness and soothing quality only to be found elsewhere in those now dwindling classical music programs that rotate Liberstraum and The Blue Danube Waltz to soothe the twilight hours and forestall the torments of insomnia. All of this is to say, by way of prelude, that The Agenda may be the last public affairs program in North America that is relentlessly civil, crushingly moderate in style and substance. It is calm. It is respectful. It is still. Yet three minutes of it has rocked the province. How so?

The Consequences of the Symbolic Recognition of Palestine "IndyWatch Feed World"

Seeking recognition of Palestine has been one of the Palestinian Authoritys diplomatic strategies which lose significance when juxtaposed against Mahmoud Abbass collaboration with the Israeli occupation. Behind statements of recognition lies silence and the tacit acceptance of Israels colonization of Palestinian land and forced displacement of the indigenous people. Other than the obsolete two-state paradigm, there has been little discussion of what such recognition actually means in practice, or whether it could generate a tangible outcome for Palestinians.

On Monday, during an official visit to Spain, Abbas urged the Spanish parliament to recognize Palestine, so that Palestine and Israel can live side-by-side in security, stability and good neighbourly relations, which will bring hope in a better future for Palestine and its people who have suffered from historical injustice when they were uprooted from their homeland in the 1948 Nakba and the occupation of the rest of our land in 1967.

According to Wafa news agency, Abbas also reiterated his support for international impositions, including efforts by [US] President [Donald] Trumps administration to achieve a historic peace deal. Presumably, Abbas is referring to the latest wheeze from Washington; according to Haaretz, the U.S. State Department has threatened to shut down the Palestinian diplomatic mission in the country if it does not embark upon negotiations with Israel and instead seeks recourse through the International Criminal Court for Israels war crimes. PLO Secretary-General Saeb Erekat stated that all communication with the U.S. would be halted if such a threat materializes.

However, with an entity that is bolstered by both the U.S. and Israel, continuing or halting diplomatic communication will ultimately continue to reveal the degree of collaboration that is ongoing, with the PA on the bottom rung and through which decisions detrimental to Palestinians continue to be imposed. Whether countries recognize Palestine or not, Israel and the U.S. continue a seamless plan to strip away Palestinians from their land. Clearly, symbolic recognition is neither helping nor hindering Palestines diplomatic efforts. It is merely a symbol of the PA purportedly attempting to take a stand for Palestinian rights.

Palestine has become many things, depending upon the interests of the actors involved. Colonialism constituted the first laceration between land and people. For the international community, it has been simplified into a question to be debated at regular intervals but never answered. Abbas, on the other hand, has followed the trajectory of exploiting Palestine after allowing Israel to continue its expansion. The ensuing question is, therefore, what recognition is Abbas demanding from governments? If there was no two-state imposition, what would constitute recognitio...

Amazon Launches Secret Region Cloud Service for US Intel Agencies "IndyWatch Feed World"

Amazon announced it has launched a Secret Region on its cloud computing service for use by US intelligence and other government agencies. The provider is now able to store government information classified as Top Secret.

AWS now provides the U.S. Intelligence Community a commercial cloud capability across all classification levels: Unclassified, Sensitive, Secret, and Top Secret, said Teresa Carlson, vice president for Amazons web services worldwide public sector. The U.S. Intelligence Community can now execute their missions with a common set of tools, a constant flow of the latest technology and the flexibility to rapidly scale with the mission. The AWS Top Secret Region was launched three years ago as the first air-gapped commercial cloud and customers across the U.S. Intelligence Community have made it a resounding success. Ultimately, this capability allows more agency collaboration, helps get critical information to decision makers faster, and enables an increase in our Nations Security.

This agreement expands the collaboration between private enterprise and US government intelligence agencies. It is separate from the existing $600 million contract signed with the Central Intelligence Agency in 2013 that provided cloud services to all 17 intelligence agencies. The new Secret Region agreement makes the technology available to all government agencies with sufficient clearance.

The Human Mind Is Much Stronger Than The Anxiety It Creates "IndyWatch Feed World"

Anxiety disorders, in general, are a big issue here in the US, affecting around 40 million adults 18 years or older of age. There are many different kinds of anxiety disorders and they can range from mild to crippling.

That being said, we all have anxiety to some extent. Anxiety is something that helps us perceive danger and is meant to protect us. Sometimes anxiety is actually even a crucial part of getting the best out of ourselves depending on how you look at it.

If you can work your mind to overcome the anxiety and shift to a place of less struggle you will be all set. You see, oftentimes we simply try to ignore major anxiety fits or panic attacks in order to get them to go away but that rarely ever works. You have to really prepare yourself beforehand and know how to handle what is happening in your body.

According to Kelly McGonigal, there is a three-step process to shifting your mindset when anxiety arises that goes as follows:

  • Acknowledge stress when you are experiencing it.
  • Welcome the stress by recognizing that it is a response to something you care about.
  • Make use of the energy that this stress is giving you and do not waste it.

Because anxiety tends to create what we know as a state of concentrated attention using that intense focus to your advantage can be wonderful. We all know there are things that can bring about a fit of anxiety everywhere, so being able to really understand it and work through it is imperative. Dont ever let anyone make you feel like you are less than for having an anxiety disorder. You are stronger than the anxiety your mind is creating and you can use it to your advantage.

Right off the bat people with anxiety are less likely to be killed in an accident than their peers without anxiety. One study even found that people with anxiety are actually better friends than others. Dr. Jeremy Coplan actually believes excessive worry, in general, is not as much of a negative trait as we think, it is meant to benefit us as a species.

Reframing your mindset might be all you need to get things under control. No, it is not easy but it is worth it. Fighting your mindset each step of the way is not doing you any good. Our brains can do a lot more than you think.

'Google's plan to isolate Russian media is an act of information warfare' - Russia mulls equivalent response "IndyWatch Feed World"

Google's announcement that it is working to reduce the presence of Russian media in its news feeds has been slammed by lawmakers and political commentators as an act of aggression which will have a global impact on the freedom of speech and thought. "This is an open form of information warfare waged right now - a bombardment, a direct aggression" against the Russian news outlets, Andrey Svintsov, deputy chairman of the State Duma Committee for Information Policy, Information Technologies and Communications, told RT. The lawmaker explained that tweaking search results for the news category would cut off the global readership that remains interested in the Russian position on global events, calling it a "powerful blow" to the freedom of speech. "We as MPs should think about... limiting [the use of] the Google search engine, as well as certain social networks belonging to this holding in Russia," Svintsov said. Meanwhile, the head of the Russian Upper House Commission for Information Policy, Senator Aleksey Pushkov, also wondered whether Google should be "de-ranked" in Russia in a tit-for-tat response.

Age of Trump: Nuclear Apocalypse by Accident? "IndyWatch Feed World"

Ironically, President Trumps frequent nuclear blustering serves to hide one aspect of the nuclear risk. Focus on his instability and possible impetuous resort to the nuclear trigger may distract from equally significant dangers. Any discussion of the threat posed by nuclear weapons should include recounting and further explanation of the multiple accidents with nuclear weaponry as well as the environmental dangers their manufacture and storage pose.

In a review of Eric Schlossers book on nuclear weapons, Jenny Turner comments: the effort to control nuclear weapons to ensure that one doesnt go off by accident is undermined, over and over again, by demands from the military for bombs they can trust to explode.

There is a long catalog of near-disastrous accidents with nuclear weapons. Details of an infamous 1961 incident involving the accidental drop of an H. Bomb over Greensboro, NC are especially chilling, especially given President Trumps decision similarly to arm B-52s today. These details also suggest we should place little reliance on the willingness of top-level generals to restrain the president. Here is a summary from the Guardian:

Further detail on what happened to the Mark 39 bomb when it fell over Goldsboro is given in a newly declassified document written in 1987 reviewing the US nuclear weapon safety programme. It records that as the B-52 broke up, the pin to arm the bomb that was normally manually operated was yanked out as it fell, thus arming it.

All the various stages of the bombs fall the operation of the arming system, deployment of the parachute, timer operation, activation of its batteries, and delivery of the signal that would actually fire the bomb at impact all followed as a natural consequence of the bomb falling free. Only the lack of engagement of the final ready-safe switch prevented nuclear detonation of this bomb.

Despite such expert awareness of the extremely tentative safeguards that stood between America and unthinkable disaster, successive U.S. administrations kept up the line in public that the countrys nuclear arsenal was free from any risk of accidental detonation. This incident, just like the Cuban Missile crisis soon to follow, was just one more case where political and military leaders put the preservation of state power ahead of genuine public safety.

Because they are so dangerous, access to them must be limited, and thus independent investigators cannot accumulate information that could inform a critical assessment of their domestic risks. In addition, because they are one of the central pillars of our collective identity as a power second to none, criticism of these weapons is often written off as enemy inspired and thus illegitimate. Add to this the economic boost nuclear arms provi...

Japanese serial killer faces first of nine murder charges "IndyWatch Feed World"

Japan's "Twitter killer", who is suspected of murdering and dismembering nine people he met on social media, was charged with his first count of homicide on Monday. Takahiro Shiraishi, 27, is believed to have lured his mostly female victims - aged between 15 and 26 - to his apartment near Tokyo, where he killed them and cut up their bodies. He has admitted murdering all nine, and was on Monday charged with the homicide of Aiko Tamura, 23. Shiraishi, who allegedly stashed bits of bodies in coolers around his small apartment, is believed to have made contact with suicidal victims on Twitter and offered to help them die. After Tamura went missing in October, her brother managed to hack into her Twitter account and noticed a suspicious handle, according to local media. The brother helped police find and follow Shiraishi, who was arrested last month when investigators found him in his apartment with the festering remains of nine people.

Shady Trump "adviser" Papadopoulous was a champion for Israeli colonists "IndyWatch Feed World"

Lying to the FBI is a felony that can entail serious punishment. But supporting violations of international law by Israeli settlers is, well, generally ignored or acclaimed by many in Washington. George Papadopoulos, former foreign policy adviser to presidential candidate Donald Trump, provides a prime example. Americans learned Monday that he pleaded guilty early last month to making a false statement to the FBI "about the timing, extent and nature of his relationships and interactions with certain foreign nationals whom he understood to have close connections with senior Russian government officials." He was arrested in July and later agreed to cooperate with prosecutors. Close readers of the news may have also learned of Papadopoulos' close connection to Israel and its West Bank settlers. In a video addressed to the settlers coinciding with Trump's inauguration as president, Papadopoulos said, "We are looking forward to ushering in a new relationship with all of Israel, including the historic Judea and Samaria" - calling the West Bank by the name Israel uses.

Mpemba effect: Why hot water freezes faster than cold water "IndyWatch Feed World"

A team of researchers from Universidad Carlos III de Madrid, the Universidad de Extremadura and the Universidad de Sevilla have defined a theoretical framework that could explain the Mpemba effect, a counterintuitive physical phenomenon revealed when hot water freezes faster than cold water. The researchers, who have recently published the findings in Physical Review Letters, have confirmed how this phenomenon occurs in granular fluids, that is, those composed of particles that are very small and interact among those that lose part of their kinetic energy. Thanks to this theoretical characterization, "we can simulate on a computer and make analytical calculations to know how and when the Mpemba effect will occur," said Antonio Lasanta. Lasanta is from the UC3M Gregorio Milln Barbany University Institute for Modeling and Simulation on Fluid Dynamics, Nanoscience and Industrial Mathematics. "In fact," he said, "we find not only that the hottest can cool faster but also the opposite effect: the coldest can heat faster, which would be called the inverse Mpemba effect."

Surviving Loneliness: 11 Things I Learned Through Being Alone "IndyWatch Feed World"

Loneliness is not something anyone really enjoys. It is something that takes a lot to get through and if you arent strong it can break you.

Loneliness is a lot more intense than most make it out to be. It is like having a blanket of depression thrown over you and wrapped up so you cannot escape. You fight and fight to wriggle free but just cant. Nothing else in the world feels like true loneliness.

I have been lonely before and know I will go there again many times throughout my life. There is no real way to avoid it. Loneliness is a part of life. Below you will find a list of things that truly helped me get through loneliness and will help me each time I visit loneliness in the future.

11 Things That Will Help You Survive Loneliness:

1. Be around people as often as possible.

Get out there and meet new people. Make friends, reconnect with loved ones, and truly put yourself out there. You dont have to be alone if you truly do not want to be.

2. Do not forget how important self-care is.

Remember to take care of yourself no matter how bad you feel. Neglecting yourself when you are physically feeling down is all too easy, but dont give in to that urge. You deserve a comfortable body to keep your soul inside.

3. Be your own friend.

In the end, we are all we truly have, so be the friend you need. This is a lot easier than it sounds. Learn to love and appreciate yourself.

4. Find things to do that you enjoy doing alone.

Come up with new hobbies by searching for what truly makes you happy. If you are doing something fun in your free time you wont feel as alone. This is going to be something different from everyone but is very important.

5. Normalize loneliness.

You arent alone in feeling lonely. There are many people across the world who are feeling the same way that you do. This should bring you some form of comfort.

6. Learn to have fun by yourself.

Having fun by yourself is not as hard as it seems. Learn to enjoy your own company. At first, it may seem difficult. However, over time, you may truly begin to enjoy yourself.

7. Figure out what it is that is missing from your life.

If you really are feeling that bad then you need to figure out where these emotions are coming from. Are you really alone? Where should you go from here? Is there anything you can do to improve the situation?

8. Make sure you get the right amount of sleep.

Sleep is crucial when...

Spineless Macron disgraces France by serving as lapdog for Saudi Arabia barbarians "IndyWatch Feed World"

France's invitation to beleaguered Lebanese premier Saad Hariri for him and his family to spend "a few days in Paris" has been viewed as French President Emmanuel Macron stepping in with deft soft power to resolve tensions between Saudi Arabia and Lebanon. Less charitably, what Macron is really doing is giving cynical cover to the Saudi rulers for their extraordinary acts of aggression towards Lebanon and their violation of that country's sovereignty. Two of Hariri's children were left in Saudi capital Riyadh while he visited France over the weekend. Were they being used as hostages by the Saudis to ensure that Hariri maintains the Saudi spin on events? Certainly, the arrangement raises suspicions, but the French president sought instead to affect a "normal" nothing-is-unusual appearance. Lebanese President Michel Aoun last week publicly accused Saudi Arabia of holding Hariri in Riyadh against his will. Aoun said the Saudi rulers were violating international law by detaining Hariri and forcing his resignation as prime minister of Lebanon. Such acts were tantamount to aggression, said President Aoun.

I try to avoid using the word URGENT but this could be.

Keeping in mind the psychopaths want (and need) to keep us in a state of fear, anxiety, and confusion, I think its prudent to alert people to a possible 9-11 level event today, Nov. 21.

Q-Anon felt it necessary to post a new update during the day yesterday, which is unusual, because he said its important he did it then.

Autophagy declares the clean bill of a cell's health "IndyWatch Feed World"

The term "Autophagy", originating from the Greek words "auto" (meaning self) and "phagy" (meaning eat) is the evolutionarily conserved physiological process that maintains the protein turnover within a cell. The mechanism involves the formation of double-membrane vesicles called autophagosomes to encapsulate the misfolded proteins, invading pathogens and other dysfunctional cytoplasmic constituents. These constituents of autophagosome are collectively called as cargo which is delivered into the lysosomal compartment for degradation. The machinery of autophagy involves around 30 genes which are called autophagy-related (ATG) genes. In order to maintain a continuous protein turnover, a constitutive proteasomal degradation system of proteins exists within the cell. But the system is known to be restricted to short-lived proteins present in the cell. Surprisingly, most of the cellular components are long-lived. Therefore there must be an alternative recycling mechanism for the degradation of these macromolecules to promote adaptation and cell survival under adverse conditions. And autophagy was known to be very promising in playing this alternative role. Besides being responsible for the normal functioning of the protein degradation mechanism, autophagy is also involved in in a variety of biological functions like development, cellular differentiation, defense against pathogens and nutritional starvation.

#MeToo: Eight women say CBS host Charlie Rose sexually harassed them "IndyWatch Feed World"

Eight women have told The Washington Post that longtime television host Charlie Rose made unwanted sexual advances toward them, including lewd phone calls, walking around naked in their presence, or groping their breasts, buttocks or genital areas. The women were employees or aspired to work for Rose at the "Charlie Rose" show from the late 1990s to as recently as 2011. They ranged in age from 21 to 37 at the time of the alleged encounters. Rose, 75, whose show airs on PBS and Bloomberg TV, also co-hosts "CBS This Morning" and is a contributing correspondent for "60 Minutes." There are striking commonalities in the accounts of the women, each of whom described their interactions with Rose in multiple interviews with The Post. For all of the women, reporters interviewed friends, colleagues or family members who said the women had confided in them about aspects of the incidents. Three of the eight spoke on the record.

Whos a Foreign Agent? In Washington, Who Isnt? "IndyWatch Feed World"

You know lifes become a joke when the US Department of Justice starts requiring foreign media to register as foreign agents. Will the BBC be forced to issue a disclaimer with every broadcast and web posting: Proceed with caution British propaganda ahead? Dont bet the ranch on it.

Such distinctions are reserved for the current bogeyman of the moment, i.e. typically some marginal outlet with a small-to-minuscule audience, in this case RT, formerly Russia Today, and its companion website Sputnik. Banned from advertising on Twitter, and the subject of an official investigation by both houses of Congress and a special counsel, these two relatively minor state-sponsored outlets are nonetheless credited with nearly single-handedly putting Donald Trump in the White House.

It didnt take much to create the kind of atmosphere in which a direct assault on the First Amendment goes largely unnoticed and even implicitly supported. A mysterious Russian troll farm amplifying the perfidious divisiveness of RT/Sputnik disinformation, a few hundred thousand bucks in Facebook ads (mostly placed after the election), and the expert testimony of professional hysterics who traffic in the mythology of the new cold war. Such are the ingredients that go into the making of a new industry, or rather a revived one: Kremlinology.

Compared to the experts of yesteryear, todays Kremlinologists are a crankish lot. Bereft of any real knowledge of either Russian politics or the language, their elaborate conspiracy theories are unanchored by observable facts. Instead, we are treated to a series of mysterious links, and seemingly ambiguous meetings, which add up to a monumental nothing. Twitter accounts that may or may not be real human beings retweet fake news generated and centrally directed by Vladimir Putin, and this so they tell us was a meaningful and even a decisive factor in the 2016 presidential election. Yes, this nonsense is now the conventional wisdom in Washington, D.C., where the foreign lobbies that matter, the ones with real power, rule the roost.

Since professors John Mearsheimer and Stephen Walt have done such a thorough job documenting the power and influence of Israels lobby in the US, the often decisive role played by AIPAC and allied groups is today largely acknowledged, even by the lobbys partisans. If you have time or inclination, its worth looking into how AIPAC surely not an insignificant force and its predecessors were exempted from having to register under the terms of the Foreign Agents Registration Act.

EPA proves its industry allegiance, refuses to ban neurotoxic Chlorpyrifos pesticide found in 87% of newborns "IndyWatch Feed World"

Exposure to pesticides, herbicides and insecticides has dramatically increased since the introduction of genetically engineered (GE) crops. Urine output of glyphosate, the active ingredient in the herbicide Roundup, shot up by more than 1,200 percent between 1993 and 2016.1 Unfortunately, glyphosate is not the only chemical of concern. Chlorpyrifos (sold under the trade name Lorsban) - an organophosphate insecticide known to disrupt brain development and cause brain damage, neurological abnormalities, reduced IQ and aggressiveness in children - is another.2 ,3 In adults, the chemical has been linked to Parkinson's disease4,5 and lung cancer.6 Chlorpyrifos has been in use since 1965, and is commonly used on staple crops such as wheat and corn, as well as fruits and vegetables, including nonorganic citrus, apples, cherries, strawberries, broccoli, cauliflower and dozens of others. Since the chemical has a half-life of several months and can remain on sprayed foods for up to several weeks,7 nonorganic foods are a major source of exposure. Importantly, nonorganic, non-grass fed meats are likely to be loaded with this chemical, since conventional feed consists primarily of genetically and/or conventionally-raised grains such as corn. This is yet another reason to make sure you feed your family grass fed meats and animal products, especially your young children. Chlorpyrifos is also a commonly found water contaminant, and has even been found in indoor air.8 Children experience greater exposure to chemicals pound-for-pound than adults, and have an immature and porous blood-brain barrier that allows greater chemical exposures to reach their developing brain. Needless to say, the results can be devastating and, indeed, many agricultural and industrial chemicals have been found to affect children's brain function and development specifically

The Love Of Your Life Isnt Always The Person You End Up With, And Thats Okay "IndyWatch Feed World"

In life, timing is everything. Sometimes a perfect person can come into our lives at the wrong time and ruin everything. Love alone is not enough. You can love someone with all of your being and still not end up with them.

The love of your life is extremely important and whether you end up with them for the rest of your life or not, they have an impact on you like nothing else. Stop what you are doing right now and close your eyes. Now, think about the love of your life. No, I dont mean automatically think about who you are with now, really let your soul speak for itself. Who comes to mind? If someone you are still with comes to mind you are one of the lucky ones.

Having the chance to experience any time with the love of our lives is something to be grateful for. In life, there are people who were meant to move on after a while and even though it hurts we have to let them go. These people change us for the better and they are people we will have a connection with until the end of time. These people will come back to us in each life to come and sometimes we may actually get to spend an actual lifetime with them.

You can love someone with all that you are and still end up being toxic to one another. You can want a life with this person so bad that you cry yourself to sleep every night but it will not change a thing. Maybe if things had happened differently, if he or she had come into your life at a different time, if you were more prepared, if this were another life but it isnt and you didnt. We do not always get to hold onto the loves of our lives because the real world is more complicated than love. The real world will chew you up and spit you out every single time, and for some, love just cannot handle that.

When you have met someone who fills your life with so much joy and happiness that there is no possible way they could not be the one you will know. If you have not yet experienced this kind of thing yet please prepare yourself. You give them parts of yourself that you will never get back, and sometimes they stay and other times they go. There is nothing wrong with moving on when you need to, even when that means moving on from the love of your life.

Being with the love of your life- even if for a brief moment is an experience like nothing else. It is a blaze of uncontrollable emotions and a fire that will never seem to truly burn out. It is a love that consumes everything and even if for a short period of time is something I would not trade for the world.

Appreciate it while you have it because nothing in this world lasts forever. Dont let the end if there is one break you because, in the next life, you may be together from the very start. It is okay to no...

As Lebanon Puts Army on High Alert, Israel Faces a Much More Capable Hezbollah "IndyWatch Feed World"

Joseph Aoun, the commander of the Lebanese Armed Forces has put the military full readiness mode after observing the Israeli enemy conducting provocative maneuvers on Lebanons southern border.

This comes as Lebanese President Michel Aoun stated,

Israeli targeting still continues and it is the right of the Lebanese to resist it and foil its plans by all available means.

In conjunction with these statements, Hezbollahs leader Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah announced yesterday that its volunteers would return from Iraq to Lebanon as ISIS had been neutralized in Iraq. The timing indicates that while Hezbollah has helped Iraq to achieve victory against terrorism, reinforcements are now needed in Lebanon as many fear another Israeli invasion.

During his recent visit to Moscow, Lebanese Foreign Minister Gebran Bassil warned Israel that if it seeks to start another war with Lebanon, the Israeli invaders will not be successful. Bassil also praised the role of Hezbollah in helping to fight terrorist groups like ISIS and al-Qaeda in Syria and Iraq, while also praising Hezbollahs role as a defender of Lebanese sovereignty.

With Israel and Saudi Arabia acting as de-facto allies, even more brazenly than in the past, many Lebanese fear that Israel will invade Lebanon yet again, in-line with Saudi statements that Hezbollah is a threat to regional security. Hezbollah and its international partner Iran have slammed Saudi statements as lies.

Objectively, Hezbollah does not threaten anything except the ability of Israel to easily occupy Lebanon and the ability of terrorist groups like ISIS and al-Qaeda to gain footholds in Lebanon. Hezbollahs cooperation with the Syrian Arab Army and Iraqi Armed Forces is fully legal as Baghdad and Damascus have welcomed Hezbollahs assistance in the war again terrorism. Indeed, Hezbollah fighters often fight side-by-side with Syrian Arab Army soldiers and Iraqi soldiers.

Saudi Arabia has further accused Iran of supplying Yemens Houthis with long-range missiles via Hezbollah. This accusation is absurd due to the logistical impossibility of such things at the present time.

Yemen remains under a Saudi naval blockade and any Iranian ships attempting to supply Houthis would be instantly visible to all international parties. Furthermore, as Hezbollah has neither an air force nor navy, the idea that Iran could somehow supply Yemen via Hezbollah is not only fiction but very poor fiction.

Hezbollahs fighters serve as a kind of national guard which supplements the Lebanese Armed Forces. Members of the primarily Christian Free Patriotic Mo...

Another Muslim Man Is Murdered in Indias Rajasthan by Cow Vigilantes "IndyWatch Feed World"

(GV)  With cow vigilantism seemingly on the rise and hardline Hindu nationalism taking root in India, hooligans calling themselves Gau Rakshaks (Cow Protectors) shot a Muslim man to death who they accused of smuggling cows.

The murder of Umar Mohammad in Rajasthans Alwar district on November 10 was yet another instance of Indias Muslim community facing targeted violence.

Several states in India have regulations prohibiting either the slaughter or sale or migration of cows. The Indian state of Rajasthan bans both cow slaughter and export or migration of bovine animal for the purpose of slaughter is also prohibited. However, according to reports, Rajasthan, especially the cities Alwar and Bharatpur, are one of the biggest contributors of smuggled cattle to slaughterhouses in different states of India.

Umar Mohammads wife told the media that she had asked her husband to purchase the cows not to slaughter, but to have a regular supply of milk to feed their eight children and aging parents  which is legal.

Many Hindus consider the cow sacred and a symbol of life, and therefore do not eat it. India also has a significant population of other religions whose adherents generally do eat beef, including Muslims. In the current climate, this fact has increasingly become an excuse for communal attacks against Muslims.

Members of the Arab League have met in Cairo at the behest of the Saudi regime, to discuss the supposed "threat of Iran". The meeting featured all the crude, undiplomatic and nonfactual language about Iran that one has come to expect from American, Israeli and Saudi Arabian spokesmen. Highlights from the meeting included a statement from the Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir who stated, "We will not stand idly by in the face of Iran's aggression....Showing leniency toward Iran will not leave any Arab capital safe from those ballistic missiles.... Iran created agents in the region, such as the Houthi and Hezbollah militias, in total disregard for all international principles".

The Generational Wheels Are Turning "IndyWatch Feed World"

"The electric light did not come from the continuous improvement of candles.

-- Oren Harari

If you only read my stuff sporadically, you might be surprised to hear that I'm actually quite optimistic about the future. The main reason I compose articles highlighting all the frauds, corruption and absence of ethics within our current paradigm isn't to fill you with fear and dread, but to create awareness. Ignorance is not bliss, and I believe a deep appreciation about how completely broken and opaque the current way of doing things is can provide the spark of inspiration and determination necessary to create a new and much better world

As I've stated many times previously, it wasn't until Bitcoin emerged and I started to understand the implications of it, that I became very encouraged about the future. Prior to that, I saw humanity living under a terminal, predatory system that would eventually consume itself, but I couldn't see a plausible roadmap toward a better tomorrow. Bitcoin proved to me that not only did such a path exist, but the infrastructure for this better future was being built right in front of our eyes.

I first started writing about the revolutionary implications of Bitcoin in the summer of 2012, and looking back five years later I'm filled with an overwhelming sense of awe and appreciation for all that's been achieved. While the optimist in me always thought we might get to where we are today, to see it actually happen is nothing short of extraordinary. The incredible energy and global talent that's entered this space over the past several years brings a gigantic smile to my face. It truly is an idea whose time has come, and the more the concepts of decentralization and trustless systems infect the global consciousness, the more unstoppable they become. I think we're already there.

Benefits of Coconut Water "IndyWatch Feed World"

Benefits of Coconut Water | beach-coconut-water | General Health Special Interests

In classic Indian culture, the coconut palm is described as Kalpavriksha, or, the all giving tree. I agree with the notion, the coconut palm is a fantastic tree with many offerings. Its fruit and coconut water offer many therapeutic benefits and contributions to human health. [1]

Coconut water is a natural nutritious beverage and its very popular all over the world. Its thought to be extremely nutritious as it contains active compounds and a unique composition of sugars, vitamins, minerals, amino acids and phytohormones.

A Natural Sports Drink

The recreational, fitness, and sporting worlds are awash with sports drinks. Remove the marketing and endorsement deals and youll find that most are just overhyped sugar water. Coconut water has gotten a lot of attention as being a healthy, natural alternative to sport drinks. Most of this appeal is based upon observations regarding its hydration capabilities.

Coconut Water: In the Lab

Just as Indian culture places a high value on the coconut, so do their academic circles when it comes to inquiring into its incredibleness in the laboratory. Several studies involving animal models have reported very positive outcomes when evaluating coconut water.

The Department of Biochemistry at Indias University of Kerala has repeatedly examined the effect of coconut water on lab rats and done so from multiple angles. In one study, they reported that coconut water reduced blood sugar and oxidative stress in diabetic rats. [2] Another study found that coconut water reduced high blood pressure and improved antioxidant activity. [3...

BEST OF THE WEB: Assad visits Putin in Sochi, expresses heartfelt thanks to Russia for saving Syria "IndyWatch Feed World"

President Assad of Syria has come unexpected to the Russian resort city of Sochi, where he is having high level talks with Russia's President Putin and with Russia's senior military leadership. This is the second trip President Assad is known to have made to Russia since Russia intervened militarily in Syria in September 2015. The first trip came in late October 2015, shortly after the Russian military intervention began. Of course there may have been - and probably have been - other secret Assad trips to Russia, which have not been announced. At the time of Assad's first trip to Moscow the situation in Syria remained very fraught. The Jihadi rebels still held eastern Aleppo and had effectively surrounded the rest of the city and were pressing on the remaining territories the Syrian government still controlled along the coast. Further east the whole of central and eastern Syria had fallen under the control of ISIS, which had recently captured Palmyra. The Syrian military was over-stretched and exhausted, and in urgent need of time and help to sort itself out. In summary, President Assad came to Moscow in October 2015 a drowning man to whom the Russians had just thrown a lifeline. The situation is totally transformed today.

Shadow World Exposes Greed, Profit and the Business of War "IndyWatch Feed World"

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Justifiable paranoia: Hundreds of websites are watching your every move, permanently recording keystrokes and mouse movements "IndyWatch Feed World"

If you have the uncomfortable sense someone is looking over your shoulder as you surf the Web, you're not being paranoid. A new study finds hundreds of sites-including microsoft.com, adobe.com, and godaddy.com-employ scripts that record visitors' keystrokes, mouse movements, and scrolling behavior in real time, even before the input is submitted or is later deleted. Session replay scripts are provided by third-party analytics services that are designed to help site operators better understand how visitors interact with their Web properties and identify specific pages that are confusing or broken. As their name implies, the scripts allow the operators to re-enact individual browsing sessions. Each click, input, and scroll can be recorded and later played back. A study published last week reported that 482 of the 50,000 most trafficked websites employ such scripts, usually with no clear disclosure. It's not always easy to detect sites that employ such scripts. The actual number is almost certainly much higher, particularly among sites outside the top 50,000 that were studied.

REVEALED: Top Democrat Paid Off Sexual Harassment Accuser With $27K In Taxpayer Money "IndyWatch Feed World"

John Conyers

A leading Democratic congressman settled a wrongful dismissal complaint for more than $27,000 in taxpayer funding after he allegedly fired the staffer because she would not succumb to [his] sexual advances, according to a new report.

The congressman, Michigan Rep. John Conyers, is described as a serial sexual harasser who would prey on his female staffers in sworn affidavits signed by four of his former staffers. BuzzFeed News first reported the bombshell allegations and accompanying settlement after right-wing blogger Mike Cernovich provided the website with the documents.

One former female employee filed a complaint with the Congressional Office Of Compliance in 2014, alleging that she was fired for rebuffing Conyers sexual advances. It was that employee who eventually received a $27,111.75 settlement in 2015, in exchange for a confidentiality agreement. The congressman did not admit to fault as part of the settlement agreement.

In her complaint, the former employee said Conyers repeatedly asked her for sexual favors and often asked her to join him in a hotel room. On one occasion, she alleges that Conyers asked her to work out of his room for the evening, but when she arrived the congressman started talking about his sexual desires, BuzzFeed reported. She alleged he then told her she needed to touch it, in reference to his penis, or find him a woman who would meet his sexual demands.

Conyers regularly made sexual advances on female staffers and would ask them for sexual favors, according to the affidavits signed by his former staffers. Rep. Conyers strongly postulated that the performing of personal service or favors would be looked upon favorably and lead to salary increases or promotions, one former employee said in an affidavit.

He also allegedly abused taxpayer funds to shuttle in women with whom he had sexual relationships.

One of my duties while working for Rep. Conyers was to keep a list of women that I assumed he was having affairs with and call them at his request and, if necessary, have them flown in using Congressional resources, one affidavit states. Another staffer told BuzzFeed that Conyers, who is the longest-serving congressman, used taxpayer funds to fly women into see him.

The bombshell allegations come just days after it was revealed that the Congressional Office Of Compliance...

A Questionable Allegation and the WaPo Smear That Followed "IndyWatch Feed World"

Opinion  Leeann Tweeden has alleged that Senator Al Franken forcibly kissed her under the guise of rehearsing for their USO tour show in 2006.  Sen. Franken was a comedian at the time and headlined the show.

If the story was correctly recounted, and Sen. Franken has not contradicted it, then Tweedens story about the forced kiss is classic sexual harassment. Franken used his position in the work environment to force a sexual encounter, albeit in a far less intrusive way than some of the charges against Harvey Weinstein and President Donald Trump.

There was also released a picture of Sen. Franken supposedly touching Tweedens breasts while she slept.

Sen. Franken

It is difficult to tell if he actually touched them or was just making a crude display about doing so.

The picture does insinuate he probably was excited by her body and did want to have sexual contact with her. So the picture provides corroborating evidence to Tweedens claim, demonstrating Frankens mindset around the kiss.  Yet in and of itself, the picture does not necessarily show anything more than poor taste.

Given Tweedens celebrity status in large part due to her exhibiting her body, is the picture of Franken the comedian all that surprising?  No, not in the context of off stage antics. Yet that does not justify the story of the kiss as Tweeden tells it. Since Franken has apologized and Tweeden has accepted it, we will only know more about this incident if the Senate chooses to initiate an ethics probe that Franken recommended himself.

Submitted to Operation Disclosure | By Patrick J. McShay

"If they send a signal that we're going to be like some dictatorship, like some authoritarian regime, where political opponents are going to be unfairly and fraudulently investigated, that rips at the fabric of the contract we have, that we can trust the justice system. It will be incredibly demoralizing to the people at the Justice Department, both Democrat, and Republican, but it will also send a terrible signal to our Country and the World that we have given up on the kind of values that we use to live by."

"The Uranium One deal is not a national security scandal, it is a corruption scandal involving Clinton family self-dealing." -- Former Federal Prosecutor Andy McCarthy


The Trump Administration is pushing for a real investigation and the appointment of a special counsel to look into Bill and Hillary and Bill Clinton's involvement in the Uranium One deal that sold the rights of 20% of America's Uranium to the Russians. The funny thing is that all of the people involved are "never Trumpers" who have been trying to prove Trump colluded with Russia. They also want to know why the Clinton Foundation benefited to the tune of $145 million on the deal. Hillary, not pleased at all with this spotlight on another of her shady deals, told Mother Jones that this is "old news" and a new investigation would be a "disastrous step into politicizing the Justice Department."

Hillary whined that any further investigation into this obviously dirty deal would have devastating consequences for the justice system in America. The Clinton's decades of lies and complete disregard for decency and the rule of law make Hillary's pleas for justice laughable and extr...

Update on Marines Storming the CIA Headquarters in Langley (November 20) "IndyWatch Feed World"

Update on Marines Storming CIA Headquarters in Langley

UPDATE 2:23 PM EST -- MONDAY, NOV. 20

I have now spoken to almost ALL of my former colleagues in the Intelligence Community and here's what took place:

Yes, a group of military aircraft approached and circled the CIA Headquarters in Virginia for upwards of 30 minutes on Saturday. They did NOT land and did NOT enter CIA HQ forcibly - or otherwise.

There is apparently an ongoing and gigantic problem between the Military and the CIA insofar as the Military is engaged in implementing President Trump's policies, while elements within the CIA are still INTENTIONALLY carrying out the failed policies of the Obama regime.

Specifically, these failed Obama-era policies include supplying weapons and logistical support to so-called "freedom fighters" inside Syria , many of whom are actually Al-Nusra, Al-Qaida and ISIS terrorists.

The support being provided by elements in the CIA is being used against certain units of the US Military who are also inside Syria.

The Military has repeatedly and strenuously told the CIA the old Obama policies must stop. The CIA failed to stop.

So someone in the Pentagon/Military . . . . no one will say who . . . made a direct show of force to the CIA on Saturday. It was, for lack of a better description, the sending of a message from the military to the CIA: knock it off.

It was done over a weekend apparently because most of the bigshots in the Pentagon are at home, and by the time they heard something was going on, it was pretty much over . . . . the aircraft returned to wherever they came from.

This is utterly unprecedented. To have one agency of the US Government make a show of force to another entity of that same government is unheard of. It smacks of a sort of internal civil war heating up inside our own government!

Weather station data available via the Bridger-Teton Avalanche Center reported 53 inches of snow in Rendezvous Bowl, 45 inches at the Raymer plot and 36 inches at midmountain.

Our National Madness "IndyWatch Feed World"

american flag

Fakery and trickery are not solutions; they are a form of self-delusional madness that destroys the nations ability to face reality squarely and choose real solutions, no matter how painful the choice and path might be.

Our efforts are now focused not on solving core problems but on covering up core problems, as if covering up problems is a substitute for solving them. Down this path lies madness, for this substitution of false narratives for reality erodes our ability to distinguish not just between reality and fantasy but our ability to distinguish between moral rights and wrongs. The nation has lost its common sense, its soul and its sanity. Can we summarize the source of this remarkably pervasive madness?

The efforts of those in positions of power are now focused on obscuring the truth, marginalizing critics, blaming malevolent external forces, cloaking self-interest with virtue signaling and staking claims to victimhood. These are the five dynamics that are powering the nations descent into madness and dysfunction.

Consider Harvey Weinstein. Evidence is now emerging that Mr. Weinstein and his army of toadies, bullies, thugs, et al. put enormous effort and resources into obscuring the truth, marginalizing critics, and cloaking self-interest with virtue signaling. Next up for Mr. Weinsteins team of apologists: blame the Russians (or an equivalently malevolent Other), and claim to be a victim of all those testifying against him.

This is the model for everyone in positions of power. The only variation is which of the five will be spewed as a first line of defense, and which will be held in reserve for the last-ditch defense against the truth becoming public.

Im sorry if this is a shock, but the economic recovery is nothing but smoke and mirrors designed to obscure the pillage of the nations wealth and income by state-protected cartels. The central bank cant actually fix whats broken in our economy, but it can manually push the needle of the stock market higher.

So rather than actually fix whats broken, the solution is to make the stock market the primary measure of prosperity. In effect, the stagnation of real prosperity is a problem that would require profound (and painful to those gorging at the feeding trough) changes in the status quo; so the solution is to label the stock market the measure of prosperity an...

Skid row! Cars slide down slippery slope, slamming into others following heavy snowfall in Vladivostok, Russia (VIDEO) "IndyWatch Feed World"

Heavy snowfall in Russia's Far East had car owners showing some extreme driving while negotiating a slippery slope in Vladivostok - but none of them succeeded. Multiple cars skidded downhill and rammed into each other, all caught on camera. A narrow one-way road down a hill has become a nightmare for drivers. Stunning footage released by RT's Ruptly video news agency shows some drivers tried to simply slide down the road, but failed and ended up slamming into parked cars. Slow driving didn't help much either, as others simply smashed into moving traffic. More than 250 car accidents were reported earlier last week on the icy up-and-down roads of Vladivostok during the 24 hours after the first massive snowfall of the season. The city was almost brought to a standstill, with many commuters spending hours trying to get home.

An overview of stirring revelations/insinuations made on the Internet in October and November of 2017

Release #1, November 20, 2017

Foreword

The reason for making this book is to present a chronological account for or-dinary folks of what is either the most long lasting LARP (Live Action Role Playing, aka prank) on 4chan or indeed the biggest intelligence drop from the U.S. government to the public, ever, through an agent who calls himself Q. Except for the first pair, all of Qs messages were posted on a thread called Calm Before The Storm (CBTS), which at this point, has been archived over 430 times - making it the longest thread on 4chan ever.

As all of this evolves, it is clear that whoever Q may be, his statements, questions and/or insinuations paint a compelling picture: a world about to be set free from the grip of a global cabal that includes CIA, FBI, banker families and royal dynasties.

It was my intention to compile all of Qs posts into a printable format for poster-ity and for those who prefer not to get swallowed by the flood of information (and disinformation) posted on the CBTS thread (It also seems obvious that the thread is being spammed intentionally).

I spiced up Qs messages with a selection of tweets and headlines of relevant real life events occurring during the time all if this took place - which was during president Trumps 12-day trip to Asia. This book tries to present the big picture in one fell swoop.

Why Is The DOJ Downplaying Reports Of Proof Linking Obama And Clinton To Russian Corruption? "IndyWatch Feed World"

fbi

Following the release of the identity of the FBI informant, Justice Department officials in recent days said that informant William Campbells prior work wont shed much light on the U.S. governments controversial decision in 2010 to approve Russias purchase of the Uranium One mining company and its substantial U.S. assets.

However, The Hills John Solomon has reviewed 1000s of new memos from an FBI informant that clearly show illegal activity surrounding a Russian plot to corner the American uranium market, ranging from corruption inside a U.S. nuclear transport company to Obama administration approvals that let Moscow buy and sell more atomic fuels.

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

The Hills John Solomon details that Campbell documented for his FBI handlers the first illegal activity by Russians nuclear industry officials in fall 2009, nearly a entire year before the Russian state-owned Rosatom nuclear firm won Obama administration approval for the Uranium One deal.

The attached article is of interest as I believe it highlights the ongoing resolve in Russia to gradually and systematically acquire and control global energy resources, Rod Fisk, an American contractor colleage working for the Russians, wrote in a June 24, 2010 email to Campbell.

Part of the goal was to make Americans more reliant on Russian uranium before a program that converted former Soviet warheads into U.S. nuclear fuel expired in 2013, according to documents and i...

134 earthquakes in Monterey County, California since last week's 4.6 magnitude "IndyWatch Feed World"

A 4.6 magnitude earthquake shook Monterey County last Monday, and the area hasn't stopped shaking since. Last week's widely-felt quake was centered 13 miles northeast of Gonzales, along the San Andreas Fault. Since then, there have been 134 earthquakes within 5 kilometers (or about 3 miles) of the epicenter, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. However, most of those aftershocks weren't felt by the Central Coast. Only 17 were stronger than a 2.5 magnitude and six were greater than 3.0, said Ole Kaven, a seismologist with the USGS.

Hundreds of cattle found dead in Odisha, India; locals suspect epidemic "IndyWatch Feed World"

An unknown epidemic has caused the death of hundreds of cattle at Gumabirsinghur village under this block in Ganjam district. "There have been no visible symptoms. The cattle are found dead everywhere in forest, riverside, canals, hills and farmlands in the village. This condition has been occurring for the last three days," locals said. The deadly issue came to the fore after the affected farmers brought the matter to the notice of Berhampur sub-collector. Surprisingly, the veterinary department has failed to tackle the disease as the cause of the outbreak of the disease is yet to be ascertained. The unknown epidemic has spread panic among locals who held the administration responsible. Among the many farmers who had lost their cattle were Jagili Gouda, Bauri Gouda, Dhaneswar Pradhan, Balram Pradhan, Sudam Pradhan, L Panda, L Seemanchal, Narsingh Gouda, M Andha, D Bijay, K Trinath and M Kameshu.

Former IRS director Lois Lerner: My life will be in danger if real reason why Tea Party was targeted goes public "IndyWatch Feed World"

Former IRS director Lois Lerner told a federal court last week that she and her family could face death threats and physical violence if her testimony of why tea party groups were targeted under her watch becomes public. Lerner and her former deputy at the IRS, Holly Paz, filed court documents Thursday, saying their depositions given in a court case this year should remain sealed from the public forever, according to The Washington Times. "Whenever Mss. Lerner and Paz have been in the media spotlight, they have faced death threats and harassment," their attorneys said. As previously reported by The Western Journal, the IRS settled two lawsuits in October alleging the agency illegally targeted conservative groups under the Obama administration. One of the settlements stipulated the IRS issue a formal apology for illegally singling out conservative and tea party groups due to their political beliefs dating back to 2010.

Shocking CDC Tests Reveal 3,800 US Water Supplies Up To 400% MORE Contaminated Than Flint "IndyWatch Feed World"

water

For years there has been an ongoing debate about the levels of lead that have been found in the drinking water in Flint, Michigan, but recent studies have shown that water conditions are just as bad in many other areas throughout the country.

In fact, Reuters recently published neighborhood-level blood lead testing results from 34 states, as well as Washington DC, which were collected by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The results showed that 3,810 neighborhood areas have levels of lead that are at least double those seen in Flint. Close to half of these sites had levels that were actually four times as high as those in Flint.

Some of the areas shown to be affected the most were parts of Pennsylvania, New York, Baltimore and parts of Ohio. Researchers noted that areas which were heavily industrialized before lead was recognized as a problem have become hotspots for contamination. A color-coded map identifying many of these hotspots was published with the report, showing some of the highest levels of contamination in Savannah, Georgia; Brooklyn, New York; and even as far north as Rutland, Vermont.

The results showed that despite the fact that Flint had become the face of lead contamination in America, it doesnt even rank among the most toxic water supplies in the country. Far from being a localized problem, it seems that water supplies throughout the entire country could be compromised. In 2013, prior to the Flint controversy, The American Society of Civil Engineers gave the nations water infrastructure a D+ on their Report Card for Americas Infrastructure in 2013. It is estimated that the much-needed overhaul of the countrys water infrastructure could cost over $1 trillion.

Restoring existing water systems as they reach the end of their useful lives and expanding them to serve a growing population will cost at least $1 trillion over the next 25 years, a 2012 American Water Works Association (AWWA) report concluded.

However, the residents of Flint are still waiting o...

US Senate Disregards Bradbury Role in Torture "IndyWatch Feed World"

(HRW) On November 14, 2017, the US Senate approved Steven Bradbury as general counsel of the federal Department of Transportation by a 50-47 vote. As the acting head of the Office of Legal Counsel in the US Department of Justice from 2005 to 2009 under then-President George W. Bush, Bradbury wrote several significant opinions that gave legal cover to waterboarding and other CIA abuses of detainees that have long been recognized as torture.

The confirmation of Steven Bradbury sends a dangerous message that the US Senate will, without serious scrutiny, confirm nominees for prominent government posts who have been responsible for authorizing torture, said Letta Tayler, senior terrorism and counterterrorism researcher at Human Rights Watch. By giving legal cover to waterboarding and other torture and inhumane treatment of detainees in violation of US and international law, Bradbury failed to uphold the respect for human rights and the rule of law that are critical for any US government lawyer. US authorities should be placing Bradbury under criminal investigation along with other US officials who played a key role in systematic torture during the George W. Bush presidency.

Salmans Shake-Up: Saudi Maneuvers Are Bad for the American People "IndyWatch Feed World"

The Ritz Carlton Hotel in downtown Riyadh is now serving as a temporary prison, holding some of the 201 people that have been detained on the orders of Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman. 1,800 bank accounts have been frozen.

The drama is escalating on the international front as well. The Saudis are blaming Iran for a recent missile attack from Yemen. The Prime Minister of Lebanon has resigned from his post while in Riyadh and echoes Saudi rhetoric against Hezbollah.

The price of oil is rising again, the highest its been in two years, approaching $58 per barrel.

Whats going on? Something is clearly boiling below the surface on the Arabian Peninsula. How can we interpret these chaotic moves?

Why does the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia exist? Did it simply arise naturally? Does the mindset of the people living in the region simply long for this Wahabbi autocracy? This is what certain forces would like us to believe. But the reality is that the rise of the House of Saud, and the prolonged life of this absolute monarchy that beheads and tortures, is closely linked to forces outside the region, namely, western oil bankers.

The British empire discovered, in their efforts to dominate the region, that ibn Saud, known as Abdulaziz in the Arab world, was a great middleman. In 1915, a friendship and cooperation pact was signed with this autocratic ruler, and the British supplied him with huge amounts of weapons. It was mainly due to British military and financial support that ibn Saud was able to beat down all his rivals, and dominate the Peninsula. In 1938, oil was discovered, and the third Saudi s...

US: Sexual harassment troubles mount in statehouses around the country "IndyWatch Feed World"

When Kirsten Anderson submitted a memo detailing her concerns about sexual harassment at the Iowa Capitol, she expected comments about women in the office - their sex lives, breast sizes and the length of skirts worn by teenage pages - to stop. Instead, Anderson was fired seven hours later from her job with the Iowa Republican Senate Caucus. After four years of litigation that ended in September, the state agreed to pay $1.75 million to settle her claim, leaving taxpayers footing the bill. Her case is among the first in a recent wave of high-profile sexual harassment cases that have roiled state legislatures around the nation, highlighting the moral and financial liability states faces as claims pile up. Since last year, at least 40 lawmakers - nearly all men - in 20 states have been publicly accused by more than 100 people of some form of sexual misconduct or harassment, a USA TODAY NETWORK analysis found.

Roy Moore's support for Israel "IndyWatch Feed World"

What can we expect from Roy Moore on foreign policy if he's elected to be the next US senator from Alabama? It won't be good. Moore, a former chief justice of the Alabama Supreme Court, is a bigot stirring misplaced fears about Sharia law in the US. He also opposes internationally recognized human rights. Comment: Here's what Moore said on Sharia law when questioned about it: "There are communities under Sharia law right now in our country. Up in Illinois. Christian communities; I don't know if they may be Muslim communities. But Sharia law is a little different from American law. It is founded on religious concepts... Well, there's Sharia law, as I understand it, in Illinois, Indiana -- up there. I don't know." Here Moore is being alarmist. To our knowledge there are no Sharia law communities in the US, and America is far from being taken over by Islam. But he is right to point out that Sharia law - or any religious law for the matter - is different from the law of any modern democracy, and thus incompatible. That in itself is not bigotry. On his campaign website for the December special election in Alabama, Moore asserts about foreign affairs: "We should not be subject to UN control and direction." The UN's Convention on the Rights of the Child would "only undermine our sovereignty as a nation, as does the very presence of the United Nations on our soil," he argues. His opposition to the UN-backed rights of the child is telling in light of the allegations he faces, including initiating a sexual encounter with a 14-year-old girl. Comment: Not so fast. Moore may be rightly criticized for some of his ideological or political views (see below), but so far the sexual abuse accusations against him appear to be spurious: Roy Moore case: Calls for arrest of attorney Gloria Allred over possibly forged signature in accuser's yearbookFormer Alabama mall manager says Roy Moore was not banned over harassment claimsRoy Moore caught up in Hollywood Weinstein HysteriaMother of Leigh Corfman, one of Roy Moore's accusers, has contradicted a key detail of her daughter's sexual misconduct storyMother of Roy Moore accuser: Washington Post reporters convinced my daughter to go publicRoy Moore's accusers: One worked as Hillary campaign worker, another has history of false allegations As for his opposition to the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, his main objection is to UN regulations imposed externally on the US. Whether such regulations are good or bad for the American people is open to debate, but it does not follow from Moore's opposition that he does not care about the rights of children. Article 34 of the convention requires that its signatories "undertake to protect the child from all forms of sexual exploitation and sexual abuse." Moore's policy statement on foreign affairs also notes: "We must remember that Israel is the United States' most important ally and partner in the Middle East and should reject agreements or policies th...

Worth a Look I: Going Somewhere Truth About A Life in Science "IndyWatch Feed World"

Amazon Page

Going Somewhere is a dynamic autobiographical narrative about Andrew Marinos career in science. With a depth and drama that arise from personal involvement, the book explores an exceptionally wide range of science-related matters: the relation between electrical energy and life; the influence of corporate and military power on science; the role of self-interest on the part of federal and state agencies that deal with human health, especially the NIH and the FDA; the importance of cross-examining scientific experts in legal hearings; the erroneous view of nature that results when the perspective of physics is extended into biology; the pivotal role of deterministic chaos theory in at least some cognitive processes.

These matters arise in the long course of the authors scientific and legal activities involving the complex debate over the health risks of man-made environmental electromagnetic fields. The book offers far more than a solution to the contentious health issue. The story provides a portal into how science actually works, which you will see differs dramatically from the romantic notion of an objective search for truth. You will understand that science is a human enterprise, all too human, inescapably...

Global warming... in the deeps: Tremendous geothermal heat source is melting Antarctic ice sheet from below "IndyWatch Feed World"

Scientists at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) have found new evidence to support a theory that the breakup of Antarctic ice may be caused in part by a massive geothermal heat source, with output close to the scale of Yellowstone National Park. A geothermal heat source called a mantle plume - a hot stream of subterranean molten rock that rises through the Earth's crust - may explain the breathing effect visible on Antarctica's Marie Byrd Land and elsewhere along the massive ice sheet. While the mantle plume is not a new discovery, the recent research indicates it may explain why the ice sheet collapsed in a previous era of rapid climate change 11,000 years ago and why the sheet is breaking up so quickly now.

Market Talk- November 21, 2017 "IndyWatch Feed World"

Asia followed the strong US sentiment encouraged by better than expected data. Much of the moves however, can also be explained by increasing capital flow away from troubled areas. Mondays flow was forced after news that the German Chancellor Angela Merkel failed to form a government suggesting new elections. With the Euro losing ground we did see only a small move into the Yen but saw returned demand for Asian equities. The Hang Seng returned almost 2% in todays trading, with Shanghai adding +0.6%. Both indices traded well all day but it was the Hang Seng that steadied all day closing at the days high. Very little fresh news out in Asia but money is finding its way into the market ahead of year end.

The DAX was the top performer for he core supported by solid gains in the Automobile sector. This sector appeared to take comfort following news that Angela Merkel would prefer Germany return to the polls in a bid to solidify a government; the DAX closed up near 1%. The CAC and FTSE were both around +0.4% which was an impressive performance for the UK after we saw PSBR figures adding 0.5bn more than expected. This will make tomorrow UK budget a little more interesting than was expected.

Yet more positive economic data is helping to push US stocks to greater and greater heights. Still sentiment pushes on with President Trump claiming the people will receive a huge tax cut for Christmas. Phili FED and Existing Homes Sales were both better than expected with also a support role played by an ever flatter yield curve. We are seeing values close around +0.8% firmer for the broad Russell 2k, with the NASDAQ maintaining its 1% run and the DOW and S+P both better by around +0.6%. S+P breaks record 2,600 level. Currency is the only factor that nears a little more impetus for the US and then we will start to see the power of capital flow.

2s closed 1.77% (+2bp), 10s at 2.36% (-1bp), 30s at 2.76% (-3bp), Bunds 0.35% (-1bp), France 0.66% (-3bp), Italy 1.77% (-2bp), Greece 5.19% (+5bp), Turkey 12.77% (+28bp), Portugal 1.88% (-3bp), Spain 1.47% (-3bp) and Gilts 1.27% (-2bp).

Sixteen years after Bush Snr launched his so-called 'war on terror' an untold number of civilians have been killed by disease, illness and by the US and UK-led military campaign In February 2003, Elliott Abrams, a US official convicted of lying to Congress over the Iran-Contra affair but cleared by President George HW Bush, spoke to the media about the impending invasion of Iraq, ordered by Bush's son. Abrams claimed in his remarks about "humanitarian reconstruction" - six priorities had driven the planning. "The first is to try to minimise the displacement and the damage to the infrastructure and the disruption of services," he said. "And the military campaign planning has had - has been tailored to try to do that, to try to minimise the impact on civilian populations." It didn't turn out that way. Sixteen years after Bush launched his so-called "war on terror", millions of people's lives have been turned upside down, Isis has been allowed to fester and spread, and Iraq is a nation at risk of fracturing apart. Moreover, an untold number of innocent civilians have been killed - by disease, illness, in gruesome tortures performed by local and foreign insurgents, and by the US and UK-led military campaign that Abrams and others vowed would be surgical.

The whole thing was caught on tape yet Yateems lawyer withdrew from the case without prior notice, claiming that Justice Minister Salim Jreissati had interfered in the case. If anything, the victims family should worry of interference to let this scumbag get away with his crime.

Nevertheless, the death sentence is still not the answer here and theres nothing the authorities can do for justice to be served, not when corruption is all around us and these killers are almost always protected by some politician or party. The only thing to do, sadly enough, is running for your life instead of getting into a fight with these people and trying to avoid them as much as possible.

America has no idea how many innocent people it's killing in the Middle East "IndyWatch Feed World"

Sixteen years after Bush Snr launched his so-called 'war on terror' an untold number of civilians have been killed by disease, illness and by the US and UK-led military campaign In February 2003, Elliott Abrams, a US official convicted of lying to Congress over the Iran-Contra affair but cleared by President George HW Bush, spoke to the media about the impending invasion of Iraq, ordered by Bush's son. Abrams claimed in his remarks about "humanitarian reconstruction" - six priorities had driven the planning. "The first is to try to minimise the displacement and the damage to the infrastructure and the disruption of services," he said. "And the military campaign planning has had - has been tailored to try to do that, to try to minimise the impact on civilian populations." It didn't turn out that way. Sixteen years after Bush launched his so-called "war on terror", millions of people's lives have been turned upside down, Isis has been allowed to fester and spread, and Iraq is a nation at risk of fracturing apart. Moreover, an untold number of innocent civilians have been killed - by disease, illness, in gruesome tortures performed by local and foreign insurgents, and by the US and UK-led military campaign that Abrams and others vowed would be surgical.

Al Franken victim #3? New pics show him groping feminist Arianna Huffington's breasts and buttocks "IndyWatch Feed World"

Newly revealed pictures show Sen. Al Franken grabbing self-described feminist Arianna Huffington on her bottom and breasts. The never-before-published images, taken for a magazine in 2000 and obtained exclusively by The Post, include a number of frames showing the former "Saturday Night Live" star grabbing the media mogul's buttocks as they pose back to back. An even more shocking snap shows the pair posing on a bed, with Franken cupping Huffington's breast with one hand. "Franken was clowning around, but it really isn't funny," said a source from the shoot. "That's his tactic, pretend like it's all a big joke. Arianna was pushing his hands away. He was groping her. There was some fun attached to it, but she wasn't enjoying it. She definitely told him to stop and pushed him away."

Detective gets fired for reporting fellow officer as predatory pedophile "IndyWatch Feed World"

A former detective for a North Carolina police department is claiming he was silenced and fired after exposing a fellow officer as an online predator. Brent Heavner says he was conducting an online sting, posing as a 14-year-old to lure sexual predators. After the predators attempted to meet the fictional teen in person, Heavner would make the arrest. When he attracted a member of his own police force and reported it to his superiors, he says, they took no action. Instead, they fired him. "He reported that to his superiors, trusting that (the) investigation (would) be transitioned to the State Bureau of Investigations. That didn't happen," Michael Elliot, Heavner's attorney, said in a statement published by local outlet WSOCTV. They allege that when Heavener found further potential evidence of the unnamed officer's misconduct "he was again silenced, culminating in his suspension and termination."

The stories have been rampant of parents treating their little boys as girls because they "thought they identified" that way. Between you, me, and the fence-post. When I was in the second grade, I wanted to be Cindy from the Brady Bunch. Why? I have no clue! I do know that never in my adult life have I identified as, or wanted to be a woman. My parents never knew. But if they had, and fostered that silly imaginary play, they could have well guided me into something worse. It is important to note that over half of the transgender population considers suicide! I am sure that this is probably a very common occurrence for young children!

I've been in debates with establishment loyalists online where I shared undeniable video evidence of a claim I was making (Julian Assange said X, or CNN did Y, or whatever), and had it dismissed as fake news because there was a little green 'RT' logo in the corner of the footage. That's how brainwashed these people are. There is a significant percentage of the US population which, due to relentless propaganda efforts by corporate media, now reflexively shoves away everything that has anything to do with RT, without any critical thinking whatsoever. After all the mainstream media's fuss about the Trump administration's "war on the press", you'd think we would be hearing more than crickets from them as this same administration makes the shocking move of forcing RT America to register as a foreign agent. This move will force the outlet to post a disclaimer on all content, to report its activities and funding sources to the Department of Justice twice a year, and could place an unrealistic burden on all its social media activities as it submits to DOJ micromanagement. Luckily, as always, we can at least count on Redacted Tonight's Lee Camp to rip all this bullshit to shreds. Warning: the following rant contains strong language!

Was Kenneth Starr right? Should Bill Clinton have been impeached? "IndyWatch Feed World"

In the longstanding liberal narrative about Bill Clinton and his scandals, the one pushed by Clinton courtiers and ratified in media coverage of his post-presidency, our 42nd president was only guilty of being a horndog, his affairs were nobody's business but his family's, and oral sex with Monica Lewinsky was a small thing that should never have put his presidency in peril. That narrative could not survive the current wave of outrage over male sexual misconduct. So now a new one may be forming for the age of Harvey Weinstein and Donald Trump. In this story, Kenneth Starr and the Republicans are still dismissed as partisan witch hunters. But liberals might be willing to concede that the Lewinsky affair was a pretty big deal morally, a clear abuse of sexual power, for which Clinton probably should have been pressured to resign.

Beijing Launches Citywide Inspections After Deadly Fire

By Cui Xiankang, Sun Liangzi, Qin Ziyi, Yu Lu and Li Rongde

Beijing authorities have launched blanket citywide inspections targeting unsafe buildings following a fatal fire in a suburb of the capital Saturday.

The fire broke out at 6:18 p.m. in Daxing district, about 10 miles south of the city center, killing at least 19 and injuring eight more, according to the official Beijing Daily.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation, and several people, including the landlord of the buildings, have been taken into police custody, the Beijing Daily reported, citing local police.

A grim-faced Cai Qi, Beijings Communist party secretary, appeared on Beijing TV Sunday and labeled the fire a a wake-up call. He demanded resolve to crack down on mixed-use facilities with both shops and rental homes, particularly unlicensed buildings and poorly managed industrial plants, which in addition to being safety hazards are responsible for high levels of air and water pollution.

Firefighters arrived at the scene with 34 trucks at about 6:40 p.m. and extinguished the fire around 9 p.m. They were seen carrying more than a dozen people, giving resuscitation to some before rushing them to nearby hospitals.

8 Brutal Truths That Will Turn You Into A Better Person "IndyWatch Feed World"

In life, there are tons of brutal truths we have to face. Some people learn these things early on, and others are forced to find out the hard way.

Learning the truths listed below will help you grow as a person. We should not be mad about these things, but merely accept them and continue on with our lives. To be completely honest these are things we all know in the back of our minds but for whatever reason cannot quite grasp.

8 Brutal Truths That Will Turn You Into A Better Person:

1. No one can save you from yourself.

Sure, we all would like to believe that someone is going to come in and sweep us off of our feet. You know, make all of our problems just vanish, right? Well, that person does not exist and is not coming. Life does not work this way. You create the life you want for yourself.

2. Complaining does no good.

All complaining does is annoy other people. If something is not going how you want it to, fix it. Make changes so that you dont have to complain. Wasting your breath isnt making a difference for anyone.

3. You CANT please everyone.

No matter how hard you try there will always be someone who doesnt like you or the things you do. It is IMPOSSIBLE to please everyone, dont bother trying. Be true to yourself and be happy as who you were meant to be. Do not try to fit someone elses mold.

4. You are defined by your actions, not your thoughts.

You cannot think the problems of this world away. If you are not out there making a difference those thoughts mean nothing. The world is filled with good intentions, but sadly good intentions get us nowhere.

5. This world does not owe you anything, period.

You are not entitled to everything you think you want just because you exist. You have to work for everything in life and there is no way around it. You can either go through life feeling sorry for yourself or you can accept this and work hard to get where you want to be. That decision is yours to make.

6. No one is too busy to respond to you.

If someone is ignoring your texts or not taking your calls it is NOT because they are too busy. Sometimes people deliberately choose to ignore you and the only thing you can do in this kind of situation is STOP making excuses. Dont allow people in your life who refuse to make time for you.

7. Human beings are very selfish creatures.

New York Times confirms Mumps now spread mostly by vaccinated children "IndyWatch Feed World"




There have been specific cases for which the vaccination protocol appears to have succeeded.  What has happened though is that the protocol has been applied to a wide range of other biological disease agents as if this one protocol could always succeed.

Worse we are now learning that there is ample reason to suspect much of our so called past success was illusionary or outright fraud.  Plausible claims regarding this have been made not least because some of those events are not supported naturally.

The real success in the past century has been public hygiene.  *It really matters to have clean drinking water.  The past truly lacked just that.  We now have armies able to go anywhere, operate and not be made sick.  That was never true and we still have no vaccine for dysentery.

In the event it essentially turns out that mumps is likely extinct in the wild and we now contract it through vaccination.  Even back in the day the so called vaccine was dangerous and it nearly killed me when i was twelve.  We were injected in the midst of an outbreak no less.  How stupid..

She stated that they were told to discard the vaccine inserts, as they were all lawyer jargon.

Song of Pheryllt "IndyWatch Feed World"



 


Much of the material here is drawn from medieval sources inspired by the work of Virgil.  Pheryllt is the welsh form of Virgil.

However do note the immediate affinity to metal workers and alchemy as we discovered through the Kolbrin Bible which does have internal authenticity.  This work at least remembers an ancient sect of teachers or Druids who were also out of the Bronze Age tribe of global metal workers central to the Atlantean world.


Beyond that the time of Stonehenge was prior to 2500 BC and the historical knowledge of the druids time in during Roman times. Linking them is questionable but considering the concurrent Egyptian world and the natural continuity of shared scholarship as shown us with the Kolbrin, it is not impossible at all.



That we are now dredging up bits and pieces is excellent, particularly as i also have a clear grasp of the physicality of the after life and can authenticate much of the material from that aspect.

The Damaging Effects of Alcohol Consumption On The Brain "IndyWatch Feed World"

While we hear a lot about the dangers of illegal drugs, we dont often hear anything at all about the legal ones being pushed on us. Alcohol, for those who do not know, is extremely damaging and can wreak havoc on our bodies.

Drinking alcohol actually damages our brains. A study carried out not too long ago that was published in the BMJ actually took the time to evaluate the connection between brain issues and drinking alcohol, the findings were astonishing. Researchers followed 550 men and women for 30 years for this study and measured their brain structure and function as time passed. This showed exactly how alcohol use affected them as they aged.

According to the study itself:

Existing on a spectrum of severity, alcohol-related brain damage typically involves relatively young people, often in their 40s or 50s, meaning the more severely affected require decades of institutional care. While alcohol-related brain damage generally afflicts malnourished drinkers consuming very high levels of alcohol, some degree of potentially reversible cognitive impairment is detectable in most people starting treatment for alcohol dependence.10 Alcohol can be the primary cause of cognitive impairment in some individuals, but it is a likely contributor to the cognitive decline in many more.

You see, they were able to find that the more people drank the more atrophy occurred in the brains hippocampus. Those who drank moderately even saw an elevated risk for cognitive changes. As you may already be aware depression and alcohol are also closely linked. The findings of the study mentioned above definitely raise a lot of questions about whether current guidelines on alcohol consumption are appropriate. Even in moderation may be a bit too much.

Authors of this study pointed out that heavy chronic drinking is also linked to something known as Korsakoff syndrome and alcoholic dementia. They also did not note any protective effects from light drinking contrary to what we are most commonly told. They also hinted that alcohol may actually affect the volume of the amygdala, but more research will have to be done in regards to that. It is not yet clear how these physical brain changes reflect our brain functioning.

It is quite clear alcohol consumption may represent a very real risk factor for cognitive impairment and cau...

When Smoke Detectors Fail: How to Keep Yours Up to Date "IndyWatch Feed World"

(TFC)  Youre cooking a feast, when, suddenly, smoke begins billowing from the oven. You scream, realizing youve let the casserole cook for too long, and throw open the oven door to extinguish the flames. Though the situation is over as quickly as it began, one thing that doesnt happen is your smoke detector going off, even though its located right in the next room. If this had been a true emergency, this failed smoke detector could have had far more serious consequences.

On a Schedule

Smoke detectors save lives and buy you time, plain and simple. Fortunately, they rarely need to be used, but it is critical that they work properly in case they are ever needed. Proper upkeep of your smoke detectors is one of the most important steps you can take to ensure your familys safety. The U.S. Fire Administration recommends testing your smoke detectors at least once a month and replacing the batteries at least twice a year.

An easy way to remember to test your smoke detectors is to set up a reminder on your smartphone to go off on the first of every month. A good rule of thumb for changing the batteries is to do it whenever you change your clocks from daylight time to standard time, and vice versa. Obviously, if your detector is hard-wired, you dont need to worry about replacing the batteries, but you definitely still need to test the detector at least once a month to ensure the detector is working properly, and all wiring is still functional.

Time for a Change

Since smoke detectors are usually out of reach, they are often forgotten about. With your monthly reminder to test them, ensuring they are working properly is much easier. However, even if they pass the self-check, all smoke detectors need to be replaced at least every ten years. Over time, the sensors which detect the smoke can deteriorate and become less sensitive.

KejRaj -- Return of the Republic "IndyWatch Feed World"



Source: Era of Light

Return of the Republic


Greetings friends, it is I KejRaj(KayRy). The information expressed here is that of my perspective my point of view. For all truth awaits you in your heart. We hope you feel our light and love in this message.

All is moving forward, and fast. Stop and feel the vibrations, feel the intensity of the new light that is cleansing all of Earth. Breath now, breath freely, for all that we have spoken of, all that we have hoped for, all that we have heard about is NOW UNFOLDING.

Ascension is moving forward at full speed. The light is increasing here on Earth by the second, there are no more stops, no more sitting around and waiting, no more holding back for nothing.

One of the things many have been looking for is the Global Currency Reset and NESARA. And these too are to be announced shortly. But as we have said in the past what happens in America affects the world. This still stands. There were some who have claimed that the rest of the world may move forward and leave America in the dark if the American government does not play along. False information then and now.

All nations are about to be set free. But it has started here in America, this is her destiny, and it shall be fulfilled in the coming days and weeks. The Republic is to be returned to the people. This process is in full swing, and no thing can stop it.

The cabal are breathing heavy now. They have been cornered, some are being cuffed for later prosecution, while others are being neutralized on the spot. The game is over.

You may be grateful to the Galactics for this, the Spiritual Hierarchy, your cousins from Inner Earth. And for America, you can be grateful to your current U.S president. He too is playing a major role on ridding America of cabal. It is our understanding that this current president has met with the Ascended Master known to you as Saint Germain.

Programmable, Shape Shifting Metal is Now a Reality (Watch) "IndyWatch Feed World"

With funds from an institution called the EPSRC, researchers from two UK universities have managed to create shape-shifting, programmable liquid metal, that could have advanced applications in the future.

Researchers from the University of Sussex and Swansea University created shapes such as a heart, and letters out of liquid metal using electrical charges.

They say the findings open a door to an extremely promising new class of materials that can be precisely programmed to make certain shapes, even open up new possibilities in soft robotics and shape-changing displays.

According to the Daily Accord:

While the invention might bring to mind the film Terminator 2, in which the villain morphs out of a pool of liquid metal, the creation of 3D shapes is still some way off. More immediate applications could include reprogrammable circuit boards and conductive ink.

A research associate working on the project named Yutaka Tokuda said:

This is a new class of programmable materials in a liquid state which can dynamically transform from a simple droplet shape to many other complex geometry in a controllable manner.

While this work is in its early stages, the compelling evidence of detailed 2D control of liquid metals excites us to explore more potential applications in computer graphics, smart electronics, soft robotics and flexible displays.

The electrical fields that play a key role in shaping the liquid metal are computer generated: so the exact shape and position of the material can be dynamically controlled, programmed.

Professor Sriram Subramanian, head of the INTERACT Lab at the University of Sussex said: Liquid metals are an extremely promising class of materials for deformable applications; their unique properties include voltage-controlled surface tension, high liquid-state conductivity and liquid-solid phase transition at room temperature....

Hunting Cartridges Cleanup in Amaz and Eghbeh "IndyWatch Feed World"

Every year, around 25 million shots are fired in Lebanon and the majority, if not all cartridges, are left behind by hunters in forests and mountains. Hunting cartridge is extremely harmful to nature especially the plastic type that could take hundreds of years to decompose and harm crops as well as groundwaters and rivers.

For that sake, Live Lebanon organized a cleanup day with Live Love Beirut and the National Commission For Lebanese Women in the Keserwan area and managed to pick up thousands of empty shot cartridges left by hunters. Lebanese Olympics trap shooting champion Ray Bassil, head of the national committee for Lebanese Women Claudine Aoun Roukoz, Lebanese Champion Silvio Chiha as well as volunteers from Jordan, Lybia, Germany & Tunisia joined the initiative. All the cartridges were placed in a warehouse and will soon be recycled.

Achieving a cartridge-free environment is still a far-fetched goal but this is an encouraging start. What needs to be done though is come up with a proper hunting law and be able to enforce it because the real problem are unethical hunters who shoot down anything that moves and who couldnt care less about leaving empty cartridges behind.

Turkey Brand Sold At Whole Foods Tests Positive For Banned Drugs And Remains On Sale "IndyWatch Feed World"

Tests taken by the U.S. Department of Agriculture have shown that a popular poultry brand sold at Whole Foods is not as safe and ethical with their food as they claim to be.

The tests found that meat from Diestel Turkey was filled with various drugs and antibiotics that have been banned in the US. Among the most harmful of these drugs is chloramphenicol, which has been known to cause, severe toxic effects in humans including bone marrow suppression or aplastic anemia in susceptible individuals, according to the FDA. Ketamine, the animal tranquilizer and party drug found commonly at raves was also found in samples of the Turkey, leading many to believe that Diestel is lying about how they treat their Turkeys and about how safe their food is.

As with most of the brands sold at Whole Foods, Diestel markets its products by appealing to people who are more health conscious, or people who just want to avoid factory farms. Whole Foods has given Diestel their 5-Step Animal Welfare Rating standard, which is supposed to ensure that animals are free range and not treated with hormones, antibiotics or other drugs.

On their website, Diestel says that:

All of our whole-body Diestel turkeys are raised under our strict standards. We support our turkeys with a healthy environment, fresh mountain water, and the clean air from the Sierra Nevada Foothills. Our feed never contains fillers, our birds are never given growth stimulants or antibiotics, and we never make compromises when it comes to the quality of the feed. We pay close attention to the health of our birds by spending time with them in the fields, observing their behaviors, and making sure they have the best environment possible.

However, recent investigations into the company show that they have been lying about the use of drugs and antibiotics in their turkeys. Animal rights group Direct Action Everywhere (DxE) launched an independent investigation last year, and they claim that the only turkeys on the companys farm are just for appearances and that the majority of their turkeys are kept in terrible conditions in factory farms.

Diestel Turkey Ranch, which has received Whole Foods highest rating for animal welfare, operates a showcase farm in Sonora, CA that is heavily promoted in the companys marketing and described as humane. However, the showcase farm does not, in fact, raise any animals for sale its nothing more than a prop, a report from DxE stated.

The group is currently suing Diestel for false advertisement and deceiving consumers about their business practices....

The study concluded: higher prenatal fluoride exposure, in the general range of exposures reported for other general population samples of pregnant women and nonpregnant adults, was associated with lower scores on tests of cognitive function in the offspring at age 4 and 612 y.

In short, pregnant women exposed to fluorides give birth to children who later show up with lower IQ.

Trumps Ultimate Deal Only offers Hard Choices for Abbas "IndyWatch Feed World"

The long wait appears to be coming to an end on Donald Trumps ultimate deal, one supposedly capable of unlocking the impasse between Israel and the Palestinians.

The United States peace initiative may be unveiled as soon as January, marking the first anniversary of Mr Trumps arrival in office. Other reports suggest it may be delayed until March. But all seem sure it will be upon us soon.

Neither Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu nor Mahmoud Abbas, the Palestinian president, appear keen to enter another round of fruitless dialogue.

But for good reason, Mr Abbas is far more reticent.

This month, in statements presumably directed at Washington, he insisted he would not agree to a Palestinian state without Gaza, or one restricted to Gaza. He also warned again that, in the absence of a two-state solution, Israel would face demands from Palestinians for equal rights in one state.

That was presumably the context for Mr Abbas being called to Riyadh earlier this month, doubtless after the White House urged Saudi Arabia to use its leverage with the Palestinian leader to bring him onside. According to Palestinian sources cited by Israeli reporter Ben Caspit, Mr Abbas was told in no uncertain terms that he had to respond positively to the coming peace initiative.

Strong-arming Mr Abbas was doubtless also the motive behind US threats at the weekend to shut down what is effectively the Palestinians embassy in Washington unless the Palestinian leader agrees to peace talks.

Outrage from Palestinian officials, who referred to the White House move as extortion, was an indication of their mounting exasperation.

Given that Mr Abbas is invested exclusively in diplomacy, his resistance to this round of US-led peacemaking should serve as warning enough of how bad a Trump peace is likely to prove.

At the weekend Israeli media offered the first substantive clues of what might be on offer.

The headline news is not entirely bad so long as one ignores the small print. Most significantly, if reports are accurate and Washington and Israel claim they are not the US is said to be ready to recognise a Palestinian state.

It is a move characterised by the kind of bullishness that is Mr Trumps trademark and has left Mr Netanyahu anxious. But everything else should reassure him.

The US will apparently agree that no one will be forcibly moved from their home. That may prove the answer to Israels prayers. It will finally have US blessing for all its illegal settlements, which have eaten into the bulk of the West Bank, turning it into a patchwork of Palestinian enclaves.

After five decades of Israel clearing most of the Palestinian population from t...

US Military Leaders May Face War Crimes Charges In International Court "IndyWatch Feed World"

This month, the chief prosecutor of the International Criminal Court (ICC) asked for the courts approval in bringing war crimes charges against US Military, and CIA leaders for their barbaric occupation of Afghanistan. Members of the Taliban and Afghan officials who have been installed as puppets were also named as suspects in the death and devastation that the country has experienced.

[T]here is a reasonable basis to believe that war crimes and crimes against humanity have been committed in connection with the armed conflict in Afghanistan, Chief Prosecutor Fatou Bensouda said in a statement.

Bensouda has been pushing for high ranking military officials to be prosecuted since November of last year when she released a report about evidence of war crimes in Afghanistan.

In the report, Bensouda wrote that there is a reasonable basis to believe the war crimes of torture and ill-treatment had been committed by US military forces deployed to Afghanistan and in secret detention facilities operated by the Central Intelligence Agency, principally in the 2003-2004 period, although allegedly continuing in some cases until 2014.

The report went on to indicate that this was not the case of a few bad apples, but a deep systematic problem.

[These] were not the abuses of a few isolated individuals, but rather were part of approved interrogation techniques in an attempt to extract actionable intelligence from detainees. The report went on to say that there was reason to believe that crimes were committed in the furtherance of a policy or policies which would support US objectives in the conflict in Afghanistan, the report stated.

Unfortunately, the United States Government believes that they are above the law and that they do not need to abide by the same standards that they violently impose on other countries. In the Patriot Act era of the Bush administration, the Service-Members Protection Act was passed by Congress, wherein the US government gives itself permission to forcibly extract any member of the US military who is held for crimes by international courts. In this decree, they also gave themselves permission to ignore the orders of international courts. This is not surprising considering that the entire Bush administration admitted to signing off on torture in the name of national security.

However, the rules that politicians in the United States have written down on paper are not in accordance with the established principles of international law, which state that no one is out of jurisdiction when it comes to genocide, war crimes, and crimes against humanity....

Will Spain be the First to Default on Pensions? "IndyWatch Feed World"

The Pension Crisis is brewing rapidly and we will begin to see this make headlines much more so around the world. There is hardly a country not in trouble (Norway the exception), where pensions are underfunded as governments have relied upon tax revenue. As the crisis in Spain brews, it will be the pension crisis there which blows the lid off of the entire problem. The Spanish pension system is moving rapidly toward a major crisis threatening its collapse. The Madrid government needs to issue debt to close the huge gaps as, without new debt, the pension crisis would have a meltdown this year. The question becomes when will buyers of debt realize that it is not even backed by economic growth.  This is similar to a person without a job borrowing from the bank just to pay the rent. What government have done in the management of pensions is criminal for anyone in the private sector.

Sapin faces a major social crisis as we cross the threshold of 2018. The situation keeps getting worse by the day. For years, the Spanish government, like so many others, has been using funds from its pension reserves to finance expenses elsewhere in the budget ever since 2012. Billions have been used to offset the widening deficits in the welfare system. Consequently, the pension fund has collapsed from 66 billion euros in 2011 to only about 15 Billion euros in 2016. At this rate, Spain goes into default in 2018. The crisis materializes when those who buy debt suddenly see there is no possible way to repay the debt from future revenues. A default becomes possible when there is NO BID for new debt.

This is how it will begin. The peripheral economies will go bust and then a contagion begins as traders look around and say OMG! They are all the same!

"Humans Crave Violence, Just Like Sex, Food" "IndyWatch Feed World"

"Humans Crave Violence, Just Like Sex, Food"
By Jeanna Bryner

"New research on mice shows the brain processes aggressive behavior as it does other rewards. Mice sought violence, in fact, picking fights for no apparent reason other than the rewarding feeling. The mouse brain is thought to be analogous to the human brain in this study, which could shed light on our fascination with brutal sports as well as our own penchant for the classic bar brawl. In fact, the researcher say, humans seem to crave violence just like they do sex, food or drugs.

Scientists have known that mice and other animals are drawn to fights. Until now, they didn't know how the brain was involved. The new study, detailed online this week in the journal 'Psychopharmacology', reveals the same clusters of brain cells involved in other rewards are also behind the craving for violence. "Aggression occurs among virtually all vertebrates and is necessary to get and keep important resources such as mates, territory and food," said study team member Craig Kennedy, professor of special education and pediatrics at Vanderbilt University in Tennessee. "We have found that the reward pathway in the brain becomes engaged in response to an aggressive event and that dopamine is involved."

The Science of Subterfuge "IndyWatch Feed World"

Following the devastation of WWII, many survivors of the armed sieges sought refuge in lands that were not their own. Among them were not just the beleaguered, but also the ordained. Here I write not of the papacy, but of an equally powerful cabal of power-holders who envisioned the continual progression of Western-and indeed non-Western, as well- societies towards Edward Bernays coveted ideal of a modern democracy. This would be a democracy wherein political power wouldnt arduously be fought for, but graciously accepted from those who would be convinced to relinquish it to a technocratic ruling class.

Following the legacy of Wellington House and the Tavistock Institute in the United Kingdom, the United States would have its own intelligence operations working towards uncovering the mechanics of individual and collective consciousness, thereby enabling it to take the reigns of political power, ad infinitum. This military imperative was eventually handed over to the CIA, where it flourished like a bud during a verdant springtime. As part of the directive, the CIA would enlist the expertise of some of the most fortunate emigrants from war-ravaged Germany. These vanguard scientists, who were interested in elucidating the most valuable methods of effecting mind-control, would not only be given entrance into the United States, but would actually be actively sought and recruited by the United States military under an expedited immigration program known as Operation Paperclip; the greenlighting of this program should serve as fact to completely debunk the veneer of justice ostensibly achieved by the Nuremberg Trials, during which the United States spearheaded prosecutions, as nothing but a total sham. This ominous project would lay the fertile ground for intelligence (covert war) operations both domestically in the United States, as well as abroad.

Under the presidency of Harry Truman, the pretext for authorizing the operation was that it would serve as a maneuver to confer advantage to the United States during the spurious Cold War, given that the imported scientists possessed a profundity of knowledge surrounding interrogation and espionage techniques. Indeed, it was these scientists, among whom are such notable figures as former NASA director Wernher Von Braun, who enabled Germanys infiltration of the Soviets during WWII, a tool that would undoubtedly serve the United States. However, the full scope of the War Departmentsthe Department of Defence of days past- interest in these post-Nazism neo-Nazis wasnt entirely, if at all, about fortifying national security.

Among the earliest of the programs funded by the CIA and staffed by the immigrant Nazis was project MKUltra, a Cold-War era data mining operation comprising 149 known subcategories, spanning several decades and involving all manner of criminal coercion, manipulation, and torture. It is...

Barely 90,000 Lebanese Expats Registered to Vote "IndyWatch Feed World"

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Emigrants announced yesterday unofficially that over 85,000 Lebanese registered online to vote in the upcoming elections. The minister seemed proud about the number but I think its a very low turnout given that the campaign has been ongoing for over two months now.

In fact, if we assume that the Lebanese diaspora is around 8 million and that half of them are eligible to vote, barely 2% of them registered online. Nevertheless, its still better than nothing but if the government and ministry are serious about getting expats to vote, they should throw in more money and incite Lebanese embassies and communities worldwide to get people to register.

Fascinating Clues Around Qs 4Chan Leaks: White Rabbits & Hidden Hyperspace Kingdoms [videos]

Source: Out of Mind




Theres no denying the Internet/blogosphere is on a mission now that Q has lit a fire under us.

For some, the recent activity regarding the marine deployment in Langley has done the trick and theyre rubbing the sleep out of their eyes and probably wondering what these other posts on the blogs are about UFOs and portals, Illuminati black magic, chemtrails, pizzagate, reptilians, etc., and this blog title sounds more like a virtual reality game.

Were really getting a handle on how this game is played, but with so many puzzle pieces and the overload of information available on the world wide web, some of us miss things. For example, one YouTuber I listened to recently said he believed Bill Gates is a pretty good guy as he hadnt heard anything to the contrary. We have busy lives and cant explore every bit of news but eventually all will be revealed.

By now we may at least be coming close to understanding the hidden world in which the dark cabal operates, or at least most of it, but this rabbit hole is going to come out somewhere near China before were done.

A patriot shared the following on 4Chan. He took the instructions from Q literally and followed the White Rabbit. He threw this out there for consideration. What do you think? Yes, hes right its a bit of a stretch, but he could be on to something. Sure looks like a bunny to me.

250 Million Living on Moon - John Lear

Everything You've Been Told about the Moon is a Lie! John Lear from Truth Warriors on Vimeo.

John Lear goes over the information he's discovered concerning structures on our moon. You'll see some incredible photographs clearly showing artificial structures. John has a lot of friends with high levels of clearance who have told him things about the moon. John claims over 250 million people are living on the moon already. I don't doubt this.

Marvel has a new TV show called "Inhumans" that is a pretty cool show. In the show, the inhuman are living on the moon and their city Attilan (picture above) is hidden under a dome with a holographic image projected on it. Did you know amateur astronomers have captured what appears to be a holographic type image being projected over the moon? You'll see it in the second video below. Is this holographic technology being used to cover up structures on the moon just like in the TV show "Inhumans"? There is no other reason you'd see a holographic type image roll across the moon and actually displace craters! It's amazing video few have seen before.

I believe it's very possible the structures on the moon are being hidden by a hologram or some other technology. The secret space program has most likely had Tesla antigravity craft since probably the 40s or 50s. I think they went to the moon using these craft probably in the 50s and to Mars no later tha...

MPs without empathy: UK Parliament votes that animals have no emotions or feelings, they can't feel pain "IndyWatch Feed World"

Under EU law, animals are currently recognised as being capable of feeling pain and emotion. But MPs have this week voted to drop the inclusion of animal sentience into the Withdrawal Bill. This vote comes in contrast to extensive scientific evidence that shows that other animals do have feelings and emotions, some even stronger than ours. For a little more detail, there's the Cambridge Declaration on Consciousness: "non-human animals have the neuroanatomical, neurochemical, and neurophysiological substrates of conscious states along with the capacity to exhibit intentional behaviors. Consequently, the weight of evidence indicates that humans are not unique in possessing the neurological substrates that generate consciousness. Non-human animals, including all mammals and birds, and many other creatures, including octopuses, also possess these neurological substrates." But politicians clearly think that they know better about animal brains than the majority of scientists on the planet.

TALLAHASSEE The Florida Democratic Party chairman resigned Friday in shame. A Republican state senator faces possible expulsion for sexual harassment. The state Senates top Democratic leader abruptly stepped down after admitting an extramarital affair with a lobbyist.

Even amid the flood of sexual misconduct revelations that have rocked state capitals across the country, the nations biggest swing state has lived up to its reputation for political drama and excess over the past month, with major implications for next years contested U.S. Senate and gubernatorial elections and the next presidential race.

Florida is on fire. And its not a controlled burn, said John Morgan, a major Democratic donor, godfather to the states medical-marijuana initiative and wildcard possible candidate for governor.

It was already insane here, Morgan said. Its like Florida just cant get out of its own way.

Holy Spirituality with Pine Cone: The Sacred Secret of the Christ Within "IndyWatch Feed World"

The Sacred Secret Of The Christ Within (presented by Santos Bonacci)

https://youtu.be/4kneX0WUaXI



I want to share a gracious miracle; after writing Letting-go Solace my last posting, some of the things seemed, more than usually strange, even for me to express. I have been in a deep meditation since posting earlier today, and when I came to read my last post again, I started a new search, accidentally with more about the movie Bright Star on you tube. This comforting miracle appeared down the right margin and, not only was it easy for me to watch it, but during this video, it came to me how much Holy Spirit Guides and Protects me from doubting what comes for my fingers to dance on the computer keys of Gods piano.

Light inspiring ideas usually come to me as sort of stanza bubble-phrases, as if I clump a few in my hand, and turn this cluster of posey prose around to look inside through an end, as if the writing comes from looking though a Divine Kaleidoscope. Grateful forgiveness prayers after meditation realizations pop a few bubbles to begin to turn words into posey ideas, that have their own comforting high-vibration. Not until the post is ready, do I, then wander through a few videos that seem to fit the writing of the day somehow.

This is quite a sacred process to surrender myself, to be willing to express whatever comes from inside my Pineal Portal, but today everything got reversed to receive this miracle guidance gift of Holy Spirit comfort for me, just in case I was doubting what I wrote last post. Creation guided me with Holy Spirits help, to make sure I can stop feeling weird about speaking from high vibration light-frequency in a Collective Consciousness, perhaps stuck in low vibration control perspectives, that would seem to make it, almost impossible to share successfully, what may seem crazy to some here.

Everything I am learning, experientially comes from meditation inside the University of Inner Space, so more than just justifying my post earlier, this video came to me to explain all I have learned, without having words, and pictures to explain my enlightening Ascension journey before today. Not only was it easy for me to watch, but now we can trust even, more weirdness, if crazy s...

BATR: Saudi Arabia and Israeli Alliance Targets Iran "IndyWatch Feed World"

Saudi Arabia and Israeli Alliance Targets Iran

The consequences of the failed American foreign policy in the Middle East has seldom been more vivid with the defeat of ISIS; the U.S. surrogate in the Syrian conflict. ISIS, a blended creation of the CIA and the Mossad was the inevitable result of sanctioning the murder of Libya's Muammar Gaddafi. With the support of Russian involvement, Syria's President Bashar Hafez al-Assad was able to fend off the imperialist efforts of Israel to remove him from office and destroy his country. Defeating ISIS on the battlefield has never been the intention of the DC shadow government. The consistent policy under every US administration has been to protect the Zionist state above all else. Unfortunately, the Trump regime is no different and certainly does not follow a genuine America First foreign policy.

This background sets the stage for the next manipulation in the region. YeniSafak asks, What happened in the Mideast after Trump's Saudi visit? Their answer provides a list of developments.

One Crown to Rule Them All: The real reasons for the Saudi 'corruption crackdown' "IndyWatch Feed World"

The Saudi clown prince Mohammad Bin Salman is an impulsive tyrant. But what accounts for the urge to purge the country of any potential competing power center Why does he run a such an activist foreign policy? The answer might be Iran. Not Iran the country, but Iran the system. Since the U.S. war on Iraq the sclerotic Saudi Arabia continuously lost standing in its region. The Iranian model gained ground. A decade later the authoritarian Arab systems were challenged by the so called "Arab spring". While the movements in the various countries -as far as their were genuine- have failed, they were a warning sign for things to come. Saudi Arabia reacted to the challenges by moving away from a sedate, consensual run family business towards a centrally controlled, supercharged tyranny. The move allows for more flexible and faster reactions to any future challenge. But it also increases the chance of making mistakes. To understand why this endeavor is likely to fail one needs look at the traditional economic and social system that is the fabric of the country. The fate of the Hariri dynasty is an example for it.

The cost of the opioid epidemic in the US has increased six-fold after a White House panel revised the total to include the value of lost lives.

The updated figures put the actual cost of the opioid crisis on the American economy in 2015 as $504 billion, or the equivalent of 2.8 per cent of GDP, according to a new report from the Council of Economic Advisers (CEA), a study group serving the executive branch. The half a trillion total is a sharp increase from a study released last year that estimated the cost of the opioid epidemic in 2013 at $79 billion. Most of the costs were attributed to health care and criminal justice spending, as well as lost productivity.

The parties under investigation will be the Taliban and another powerful Islamist group, the Haqqani Network, both of which also operate in Pakistan, as well as the Afghan National Security Forces (ANSF), in particular, members of the National Directorate for Security (NDS) and the Afghan National Police (ANP). "The situation in Afghanistan has been under preliminary examination by the Office of the Prosecutor since 2006," the statement said.

Science Shows Your Thoughts Can Release Abilities Beyond Normal Limits "IndyWatch Feed World"

The idea that we may be able to heal ourselves through thought alone is something that has been discussed for quite some time now. While this may sound a bit outlandish there is proof of it having actually happened.

The mind healing placebo effect is when someone or a group is given a placebo, and then evaluated to see if the thought of that potentially beneficial drug was enough to help them improve. For instance, during a study back in 2010, a team from Harvard gave 40 patients with IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) a placebo. Each patient was given a bottle that was actually labeled placebo pills and were told that these pills were made of an inert substance that had been proven to help IBS sufferers big time.

Of course, a second group was given no pills at all and served as the control group. Three weeks of taking these placebo pills paid off as those who did take them reported twice as much symptom relief as those who did not take the pills. This meaning the relief those people got from these pills of nothing worked as well as the best IBS medication on the market.

Dr. Mercola even speaks from time to time of how important our state of mind can be on the state of our very immune systems. He says that our minds wield incredible power over our health. Researchers from Carnegie Mellon University actually found that those who are under more stress are twice as likely to become sick with a common cold or the flu.

Lissa Rankin during a more recent TEDtalk explained why she now believes in the power of the mind when it comes to healing and the science behind it. After hearing her speak I am going to be thinking about things like this from a new perspective, to say the least. It makes a lot of sense that many in the medical field would be against such knowledge being common for the world since it would potentially cause some people to deter from traditional treatment forms as it is.

Please check out Rankins TEDtalk below and let us know what you think about this subject. Do you think positive thinking really can help us heal our bodies or do you think this is a false claim? I guess the only way to know for sure is to give it a try yourself.

TFC Polls: Abolishing The Drug Enforcement Administration "IndyWatch Feed World"

(TFC) Recently, The Fifth Column News tested its readerships opinions of the DEA with a straw poll. It gave five options, covering a broad range of past and current grievances about the DEA. The results offer intriguing insights into main criticisms of the drug wars champion agency.

The Drug Enforcement Administration often spearheads the plethora of police agencies specifically tackling narcotics. As the drug war wages, billions are set aside to fuel DEAs operations. Today, its agents have operational roles in dozens of American and foreign locales. This including war zones like Afghanistan, and hostile territory in South America.

On the surface, many assume the DEA is just policing. Few Americans are aware of the political sway the agency has. In many ways, DEA is the final gatekeeper to American drug policy.

Researchers cant even study certain substances without DEA approval. Even politicians normally first consult with DEA officials to decide whats good drug policy. Their job description clearly isnt just raiding drug houses. Sometimes, theyre training militia groups and death squads where even US troops rarely venture. Like many DEA endeavors, these operations sometimes go very, very south.

Thats why the results of TFCs poll are so interesting. 112 voters participated, faced with several reasons for abolishing the DEA. Those ranged from the frequency of DEA scandals, to questioning its very necessity.

Interestingly, two options took up a combined percentage of nearly half the votes. Those being: scandals involving DEA agents and operations, and the agencys influence over drug studies and research. Trailing right behind was another interesting option, funding which sustains DEA. Lets break those down one at a time.

Reactions from voters, even some who are otherwise skeptical of the president, show how the economy's strong performance has bolstered Trump's standing. At a recent focus group that Peter Hart, a longtime Democratic pollster, conducted in Wilmington, N.C., for Emory University, even participants who voted for Trump last year sharply criticized his administration, calling it "chaotic" "embarrassing" and disappointing. Of the five Trump voters among the dozen participants, only one still strongly supported the president. The harsh critiques from the other four followed a pattern that Hart found earlier this year, illustrating how a segment of Trump voters, mostly college-educated and middle- to upper-income whites, has turned against him because of his behavior. But when the subject turned to the economy, opinions of Trump noticeably warmed.

Oklahoma's 'family values' senator pleads guilty to child sex trafficking "IndyWatch Feed World"

A disgraced senator from Oklahoma has agreed to plead guilty to child sex trafficking charges in exchange for numerous other charges to be dropped. In September, former Oklahoma Sen. Ralph Shortey was accused in a federal indictment of multiple counts of child sex trafficking and child pornography offenses. Over the weekend, Shortey agreed to plead guilty to a single child sex trafficking charge in exchange for three other charges to be dismissed. He now faces a minimum of 10 years in prison but could be sent away for life. "Mr. Shortey feels this is a necessary step in putting this painful and humiliating ordeal behind him, for both himself, his family and for the state of Oklahoma," Shortey's attorney Ed Blau said on Friday.

British Airways' newest policy: 'Pay least, board last' "IndyWatch Feed World"

British Airways has divided opinion with a new "pay least, board last" policy that means passengers with the cheapest tickets will be last to hop on the aircraft. As of December 12, all travelers flying within Europe will be assigned a group number between one and five at check-in, based on the fare they paid and their frequent flyer status. Those in group one will include, unsurprisingly, first class flyers and Gold members of the British Airways Executive Club. Group four [two] passengers will comprise of Silver members, group three will be made up of Bronze status holders, and group four will include economy passengers. Right at the bottom of the pile will be those in group five, who have opted for BA's cheapest hand-luggage only fares. Isn't this how boarding works already? Yes, despite the social media outcry that erupted after the announcement was made on Friday.

We Shall Overspread "IndyWatch Feed World"

While there is a big debate in the US about the old monuments, Russia is erecting new ones. Starting with the eye sore of a Kalashnikov statue in Moscow that had a bit of a glitch of sporting a German rifle instead of the famous Russian export and finishing with a monument to manspreading aka Russian Emperor Alexander the Third in Crimeas Yalta. While manspreading is a great metaphor for the Crimea reunification, lets put aside the Ukrainian side of the issue and take a closer look at the schmock du jour.

Alexander the Third statue is seated somewhat uncomfortably on what looks like a pile of shit, with his hands on a sword and the words Russias only allies are its army and fleet engraved on the base of the monument. During the unveiling ceremony that was attended by President Putin, the emperor was lauded as the Peacemaker who

defended the interests of the country directly and openly, and this policy ensured the growth of Russias influence and increase of its authority in the world. The countrys industry was booming and dynamically developing. All the while, [Alexander the Third implemented a] labor legislation [that] was far more progressive than in many other countries at that time. Workers rights were protected, factories and plants were opened, new branches of industry were created, railway network was expanded []

At the same time, he believed that a strong, sovereign, independent state should rely not only on economic and military might, but also on traditions; that it is important for a great people to preserve their identity, and that progress is impossible without respect for their history, culture and spiritual values.

Lets review Alexander the Thirds record in more detail, shall we? Apart from his progressive labor legislation (that, for instance, allowed for a 12 hour working day, but limited 12-15-year-old kids working day to 8 hours), he is also infamous for introducing a bunch of less delightful legislation. One of the most notorious pieces is the so called cooks children circular that limited access to school and higher education for the children of coachmen, lackeys, cooks, laundresses, small shopkeepers and similar people who were not supposed to aspire to achieve secondary and higher education. Revolutionary activity in Tsarist Russia, including the group that planned and executed the assassination of Tsar Alexander the Second, was seen as a direct consequence of too much education, the excess of which had to be dispensed with.

In general, Alexander the Third really loved Russian language an...

11 Most Heavily Trafficked Murder Dump Sites "IndyWatch Feed World"

As a society, we have an intense fascination with all things relating to crime, murder and the dark side of the human condition. It is this fascination that can be found responsible for the incredible success of shows like Netflixs Making a Murderer, discussing the exoneration and then conviction of Steven Avery for murder.

Scott Bonn, a criminology professor at Drew University and the author of Why We Love Serial Killers explains: My research has determined that the publics fascination with serial killers on television is multifaceted and complex. Serial killers tantalize people much like traffic accidents, train wrecks or natural disasters. The publics fascination with them can be seen as a specific manifestation of its more general fixation on violence and calamity. In other words, the actions of a serial killer may be horrible to behold but much of the public simply cannot look away due to the spectacle.

We are mesmerized by all aspects of their tales, from the stories of their childhood and the speculation as to why they turned out the way that they did, to the gruesome details of their crimes. The idea of body dumps, locations that any one of us could stumble upon accidentally, intrigues, disturbs, excites and scares us all at once. These feelings are further heightened when these locations are found to be in the middle of highly populated areas, right under our nose.

Here are 11 of the most heavily trafficked and unsolved murder dumps in the United States:

The Majority will Come Around When they are Compelled to See Govt in a New Light "IndyWatch Feed World"

COMMENT: Thank you for all or your recent posts in this regard. You have often said that we will be going through times that will try a mans soul, and yes the Socrates platform will allow us to see it in motion, those of us who are prepared will stand a chance to survive and break even. The very sad part is that when you try to explain to people to educate themselves you are quickly dismissed, I nearly lost my sister over this discussion as she cant comprehend something like this happening and chooses to stick her head in the sand. I think and hope that my family will survive but it is really eating away at me at just how many family and friends will endure hardships that may be too great for them, there are children and elderly involved, no different from any bodies elses situation I guess. I will be turning 60 soon and am afraid that I will be seeing the worst of everything to come, passing away just as we come out the turn in 32 give or take. The big question is when, you have often stated that major events occur when the pi cycle is due, wouldnt surprise me if that is when something of this magnitude occurs. Everyone in Canada seems to think that our banks are the soundest in the world and cant comprehend the contagion when it occurs yet we have had Greece and Cyprus occur in recent memory. Guessing that people here think that life is still too good for any problems to occur. You have provided myself along with just a few others that I know a very great public service, so sad that more people are so closed minded. Take care and keep up the excellent work, perhaps when the dust hits the fan for real people will wake up and realize that the tree has truly been cut and choose the right path when the cycle shifts to a public one.

This video from the USA says about itself:

7 November 2017

Something is going on inside Saudi politics and Trump is for it. John Iadarola and Jennifer Briney, the hosts of The Young Turks, discuss.

The Trump administration has tied the United States to the impetuous young crown prince of Saudi Arabia and seems to be quite oblivious to the dangers. But they are growing every day.

Saudi Arabias King Salman and his favorite son, Crown Prince Muhammad bin Salman, have broken with the traditional patterns of consensual politics in the royal family, and the results are likely to be a much less stable kingdom with increasingly impulsive and erratic policies.

A purge is now under way that includes imprisonment of top princes (albeit in a former luxury hotel), the confiscation of assets, and at least two mysterious deaths.

I have great confidence in King Salman and the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia, President Donald Trump tweeted on Tuesday morning, they know exactly what they are doing

We will start off with this underreported story because its now not just one, two, three, four, or five but a sixth person has come out against the former president and CIA head George H. W Bush. They are accusing him of sexually assaulting them including an alleged groping of a sixteen-year-old.

I get that he is old, and the mainstream media still prop him up like hes some good guy, but in reality, hes not. There should be a lot more heat on him not only for these latest actions but all the illegal operations he conducted when he was the former head of the CIA. If we had a just legal system, he would have been in jail. At least now everyones sharing and getting more attention on this story.

Spirituality Without Quantum Physics Is an Incomplete Picture of Reality, According to the Dalai Lama "IndyWatch Feed World"

Throughout history, society has created a definitive divide between those who dedicate their lives to the factual study of science and those who welcome the concept of faith and religion as a driving force in their lives. Rather than accepting that the two can co-exist, people are required to choose one or the other exclusively, creating an internal war in the minds of those who may seek to understand both sides of the equation.

Recently, however, Tenzin Gyatso, the 14th Dalai Lama, has presented a new idea that may break down the wall that has been built between these two camps. He posed an important question: Is there a different approach to life that would allow for one to believe in both science and religion?

He explained, saying: I hope conferences like this can address two purposes: extending our knowledge and improving our view of reality so we can better tackle our disturbing emotions. Early in my lifetime, science was employed to further material and economic development. Later in the 20th century, scientists began to see that peace of mind is important for physical health and well-being As a result of combining warm-heartedness with intelligence, I hope well be better equipped to contribute to humanitys well-being.

He presents a different, balanced view of how we view the world around us as presented in the texts of Nagarjuana.

One might wonder what would bring a religious figurehead like the Dalai Lama to study a scientific topic like quantum physics. He explained what drew him to this study, stating:

When I was about 19 or 20 I developed a curiosity about science that had begun with an interest in mechanical things and how they worked. In China, in 1954/5 I met Mao Zedong several times. Once he commended me for having a scientific mind, adding that religion was poison, perhaps presuming that this would appeal to someone who was scientific minded. After coming to India as a refugee I had many opportunities to meet people from many different walks of life, scientists among them. 30 years ago I began a series of dialogues focusing on cosmology, neurobiology, physics, including Quantum Physics, and psychology.

Merkel signals readiness for new election "IndyWatch Feed World"

BERLIN   [DPA]

German Chancellor Angela Merkel says she would prefer a new election to ruling with a minority after talks on forming a three-way coalition failed overnight, but Germanys president told the parties they owed it to voters to try to form a government.

The major obstacle to a three-way deal was immigration, according to Merkel, who was forced into negotiations after bleeding support in the September 24 election to the far right in a backlash at her 2015 decision to let in more than a million migrants.

The failure of exploratory coalition talks involving her conservative bloc, the liberal pro-business Free Democrats (FDP) and environmentalist Greens raises the prospect of a new election and casts doubt about her future after 12 years in power.

Merkel, 63, said she was sceptical about ruling in a minority government, telling ARD television: My point of view is that new elections would be the better path. Her plans did not include being chancellor in a minority government, she said after meeting President Frank-Walter Steinmeier on Monday.

Steinmeier said Germany was facing the worst governing crisis in the 68-year history of its post-World War II democracy and pressed all parties in parliament to serve our country and try to form a government.

His remarks appeared aimed at the FDP and the Social Democrats (SPD), who ruled out renewing their grand coalition with the conservatives.

Inside our country, but also outside, in particular in our European neighbourhood, there would be concern and a lack of understanding if politicians in the biggest and economically strongest country (in Europe) did not live up to their responsibilities, read a statement from Steinmeier, a former foreign minister who has been thrust centre-stage after taking on the usually largely ceremonial head of state role in March.

Steinmeiers intervention suggests he regards a new election  desired by half of Germanys voters, according to a poll  as a last resort. The SPD has so far stuck to a pledge after heavy losses in the September election not to go back into a Merkel-led broad coalition of...

Chet Raymo, Seeing "IndyWatch Feed World"

 
 Seeing
by Chet Raymo

Elizabeth Bishop has a poem about a sandpiper, a tiny shore bird scurrying forward and reverse with the lick and ebb of the tide. It was not the sandpiper I thought of today as I walked the beach, but the sand with which the Bishop's bird is seemingly obsessed. The last two lines of the poem:

    "The millions of grains are black, white, tan, and gray,
    mixed with quartz grains, rose and amethyst."

Everyone sees the sandpiper. Who could not? Those fluttering feet. The delicate engine of its controlled frenzy. But who sees what the sandpiper sees, the grains of sand between its toes? The poet, that's who. It is the poet's ability to see the world in a grain of sand black, white, tan, and gray- that is her gift. And more! Rose and amethyst. And I mean "gift" in two senses. The gift of her talent (who was the giver? nature? nurture?).  And her gift to us of the poem.

I want to have that gift, in both senses. The second sense is easy enough: I need only read. The poem is there, in black and white. The first sense is more problematic. How does one learn to see, to see not only the obvious, but also the obscure. The subtle. The ephemeral. The dim. Is it a gift you are born with, or a practice to be learned? To see the world in a grain of sand, and eternity in an hour?

12 Important Dream Symbols That Should Never Be Ignored "IndyWatch Feed World"

Jeffrey Sumber, an expert in global dream mythology at Harvard University and Jungian dream interpretation at the Jung Institute in Zurich was quoted stating, Dreaming is non-essential when it comes to survival as a body but is essential with regard to our development and evolution as metaphysical beings. Believed to be an important means of communication between our unconscious minds and our conscious selves, they provide us with a glimpse of a side of ourselves that we may not otherwise have the opportunity to understand.

They also play an important role in our ability to worth through and process our emotions and thoughts in regard to some of lifes more difficult situations. As Sumer explains: Dreams also allow us to process information or events that may be painful or confusing in an environment that is at once emotionally real but physically unreal. By eliminating the physical risks from the situation, we are empowered to consider only our emotional state, allowing us to be honest about our struggles, working through them in an important and necessary way.

In order to recall, recognize and understand the message that our unconscious minds are attempting to communicate we must take the time to analyze our dreams, watching for important signs and symbols. Begin by keeping a dream journal, recording anything that you remember from the night that just passed. Reading over these journal entries, pay attention to any patterns or recurring thoughts.

Source: Before Its News

 

Specifically, watch for these 12 important dream symbols:

Houses

Houses are seen, subconsciously, as being a direct reflection of ourselves, symbolizing our current state and all that we consider being familiar, safe and comfortable. They are representative of our personal identities, revealing a great deal about how we see ourselves. For example, if we see a grand mansion, this may indicate that you see yourself as living a life of great abundance. Flaws in the house are indicative of flaws in your own life that are worth considering.

 

Teeth

There are a number of different ways in which teeth can be seen in our dreams. We may experience having our teeth rotting, teeth falling out or needing to have teeth pulled....

Cop attacks innocent man for saying police shouldn't abuse their power (VIDEO) "IndyWatch Feed World"

A Kentucky cop took offense to being told police officers throw their weight around, so he assaulted and kidnapped an innocent man. A video recently uploaded by the Oath Accountability Project (OAP) appears to show a Lebanon Junction police officer arrest a man for simply asking for his name and badge number along with the name and badge number of his supervisor and noting how this cop was abusing his power. The video begins with an unidentified man (we believe may go by "Avery") and woman at a Lebanon Junction, KY Pilot gas station. After the motorist asks the police officer for permission to stand under the awning, he tells his female friend: Police in this town, in this state, in this city, have nothing better to do than to rouse people for nothing...play the bully role because they wear badges.

CRUEL PUNISHMENT OF POOREST PEOPLE! Xmas Universal Credit to be stopped

TENS of thousands of low paid workers on Universal Credit may not be paid over the festive season or may get a reduced payment.

Those hit will be some of the 67,000 people who claim the benefit while working and who are paid weekly. This is because there are five paydays in December, so their monthly income will be too high to get any or some of the benefit. Some will have to reapply.

The government defended the system, saying the majority were unaffected. The Department for Work and Pensions warns on its website: If youre paid weekly by your employer, you will get either 4 or 5 payments of earnings within a Universal Credit assessment period. Depending on the amount you get paid this may affect your Universal Credit.

When you have 5 weekly earnings payments within an assessment period, your income may be too high to qualify for Universal Credit in that month. If this happens you will be notified that your income is too high and you will no longer get Universal Credit. You can re-apply the following month as you should only get 4 wage payments in your assessment period then. You will need to be prepared for a month when you get 5 wage payments in one assessment period and budget for a potential change in your monthly Universal Credit payments.

Kayley Hignell, from Citizens Advice, said the way Universal Credit was calculated brought significant budget challenges. She said: People need to know that if theyre getting extra income in one month it may stop their Universal Credit paymen...

First interstellar asteroid recorded 'Oumuamua is like nothing observed before "IndyWatch Feed World"

For the first time ever astronomers have studied an asteroid that has entered the Solar System from interstellar space. Observations from ESO's Very Large Telescope in Chile and other observatories around the world show that this unique object was traveling through space for millions of years before its chance encounter with our star system. It appears to be a dark, reddish, highly-elongated rocky or high-metal-content object. On 19 October 2017, the Pan-STARRS 1 telescope in Hawaii picked up a faint point of light moving across the sky. It initially looked like a typical fast-moving small asteroid, but additional observations over the next couple of days allowed its orbit to be computed fairly accurately. The orbit calculations revealed beyond any doubt that this body did not originate from inside the Solar System, like all other asteroids or comets ever observed, but instead had come from interstellar space. Although originally classified as a comet, observations from ESO and elsewhere revealed no signs of cometary activity after it passed closest to the Sun in September 2017. The object was reclassified as an interstellar asteroid and named 1I/2017 U1 ('Oumuamua).

Russiagate continues to crumble: Goldstone confirms Trump Jr.'s account of "Russian lawyer" meeting "IndyWatch Feed World"

The last was a bad week for Russiagate believers, though as always reporting of recent developments has been sparse. There have in fact been two recent developments in the Russiagate case, both of which involve Donald Trump Junior. One centres on the meeting Donald Trump Junior had on 9th June 2016 with the Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya. The other centres on the emails The Atlantic recently published which which were sent to Donald Trump Junior by Wikileaks. (1) Veselnitskaya meeting I discussed this meeting at length in an article I wrote back on 12th July 2017, shortly after the existence of this meeting was publicly disclosed.

"Dont Just Give Thanks. Pay It Forward One Act of Kindness at a Time "IndyWatch Feed World"

"Dont Just Give Thanks. 
Pay It Forward One Act of Kindness at a Time
by John W. Whitehead

As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them. - John F. Kennedy

"Its been a hard, heart-wrenching, stomach-churning kind of year filled with violence and ill will. Its been a year of hotheads and blowhards and killing sprees and bloodshed and takedowns. Its been a year in which tyranny took a step forward and freedom got knocked down a few notches. Its been a year with an abundance of bad news and a shortage of good news. Its been a year of too much hate and too little kindness.

Now we find ourselves approaching that time of year when, as George Washington and Abraham Lincoln proclaimed, were su...

EU president accuses Poland's Russophobe ruling party of collaboration with Putin. EU kleptocrat Donald Tusk says Warsaw is Moscow's puppet, because it won't bow down to EU dictates. European Council President Tusk suggested that the ruling Law & Justice party is a 'puppet of Putin' and just forwarding Russian interests. Tusk wrote on his Twitter account on Sunday... "Strident dispute with Ukraine, isolation in the European Union, walking away from rule of law and judicial independence, attack on non-governmental sector and free media." "Law & Justice strategy or Kremlin plan? Too similar to sleep well." The Tusk bloodline knows a thing or two about being the "puppet" of a dictator. Here is Donald Tusk pictured alongside his SS Grandfather...Too similar to sleep well...

Puerto Rican Former Political Prisoner: Colonialism Is a Crime Against Humanity "IndyWatch Feed World"

The political and economic subjugation of Puerto Rico is especially damaging now as the island faces a deepening crisis, fueled in part by human-made climate change. As an indifferent Trump administration looks on, the voices of the [...]

Plague Warning: The Black Death In Madagascar Can Trigger POLIO "IndyWatch Feed World"

plague

A researcher is warning that the plague outbreak thats reached a crisis point in Madagascar could trigger polio. As aid workers are now only focused on the black death, polio has taken a backseat, and some health experts believe that that could be devastating.

Dr. Derek Gatherer from Lancaster University fears aid workers will be so focused on the medieval disease that they will forget nationwide efforts to prevent polio cases. It could derail the polio vaccine campaign, which would be a setback for eradication, he told The Daily Mail. If [the] Madagascan health service is bursting at its seam coping with plague, then getting the polio vaccine programme running to plan will be something of a challenge.

International aid workers are desperately battling to contain the crisis, which has prompted 10 nearby African countries to be placed on high alert by the World Health Organization. Nationwide polio campaigns have been in place in recently to immunize millions of children aged up to five years old against the condition, which can cause paralysis.

Professor Allen Cheng, an infectious disease expert at Monash University, warned of the dangers of the plague and said this years outbreak has been unusual because it is airborne. He wrote in a piece for The Conversation, in which he said: Its not possible to eradicate plague, as it is widespread in wildlife rodents outside the sphere of human influence. The plague, which is caused by the Yersina pestis bacteria, killed hundreds of millions of people in three devastating outbreaks, including the Plague of Justinian in the 6th century.

It is easily treated with antibiotics in the current global climate, however, experts are still concerned it will cause eternal havoc because it...
