Pennsylvanian bishop neglected Belgian child abuse alarm "IndyWatch Feed World"

This 9 August 2018 video from the USA says about itself:

Victims of sex abuse by Pennsylvania priests share their stories

The first Pennsylvania statewide investigation into abuses by Catholic priests is expected to be released any day now. The grand jury report details allegations against more than 300 predator priests in six diocese covering more than 1.7 million parishioners. Nikki Battiste sits down with several victims who are speaking out together for the first time.

Translated from Belgian (Roman Catholic) daily De Standaard today:

American bishop did nothing with Leuvens warning about abuse

The American College in Leuven warned a bishop in 2002 about possible abuse by one of his priests. The bishop did nothing. Only two years later the priest was arrested for other facts.

In Pennsylvania, 300 priests abused more than a thousand children since 1940. An investigative jury published a devastating report on the extent of the abuse covered up by the Catholic Church.

In that report is also the name of Albert M. Liberatore, a priest who had studied at the American College in Leuven in the 1990s and who came to visit there afterwards. In that American College United States American seminarians were trained to become priests, until the school closed in 2011.

In December 2002, the bishop of Scranton, a city in Pennsylvania, received a letter from the American College in Leuven with a warning about Liberatore. While the priest was vi...

2 French rivers disappear - Geologists suspect through cracks in the ground "IndyWatch Feed World"

The Doubs river flows normally in Franche-Comt, France. But since about a week or so, the river has totally dried up over a length of more than 1 km, between Pontarlier and Morteau, although precipitation has been abundant this winter and spring. The river has disappeared, and with it, the fauna and flora. Everything is dead. Two weeks ago, 13km of the Risle River in Normandy also disappeared underground in a large crater. According to geologists, this unprecedented event is due to large cracks and craters in the riverbed. The cave of Remonot is located near the village of Morteau along the Doubs. Dedicated to the Virgin Mary, this Chapel-Cave contains miraculous water and is visited each year on August 15, 2018, day of the Assumption. But during this year's annual pilgrimage, the cave was dry! The first time ever! Nearby, the Doubs river is also dry. No water, just pebbles and dead fish.

Small bits of RNA can trigger pain and itchiness "IndyWatch Feed World"

Some snippets of RNA can be a real pain. A microRNA called miR-30c-5p contributes to nerve pain in rats and people, a new study finds. A different microRNA, miR-711, interacts with a well-known itch-inducing protein to cause itching, a second study concludes. Together, the research highlights the important role that the small pieces of genetic material can play in nerve cell function, and may help researchers understand the causes of chronic nerve pain and itch. MicroRNAs help regulate gene activity and protein production. The small molecules play a big role in controlling cancer (SN: 8/28/10, p. 18) and other aspects of health and disease (SN: 2/20/16, p. 18). Usually, microRNAs work by pairing up with bigger pieces of RNA called messenger RNAs, or mRNA. Messenger RNAs contain copies of genetic instructions that are read by cellular machinery to build proteins. When microRNAs glom onto the messengers, the mRNA can be degraded or the microRNAs can prevent the protein-building machinery from reading the instructions. Either way, the result is typically to dial down production of certain proteins. In the case of nerve pain, miR-30c-5p limits production of an important protein called TGF-beta that's involved in controlling pain, Mara Hurl, a pharmacologist at the University of Cantabria in Santander, Spain, and colleagues report August 8 in Science Translational Medicine. The researchers discovered the link in experiments with mice, rats and people.

The world's economic debt train has runaway and it spells disaster for everyone "IndyWatch Feed World"

The entire planet is swimming in debt, yet no one seems to criticize the system itself as being fundamentally flawed. "A man in debt is so far a slave," American essayist Ralph Waldo Emerson once reportedly said. In light of this statement, I contend that I don't need to have a college degree in economics to tell you that our current financial system enslaving the entire world is not sustainable - and headed for one hell of a spectacularly ugly crash. Last month, the Washington-based Institute of International Finance published their latest statistics indicating that global debt had reached $247.2 trillion by the end of March this year, an increase of 11.1 percent from last year alone. In other words, since the start of this year, global debt rose by a whopping $8 trillion in just three to four months. In 2016, the global debt was already at $164 trillion, which was equivalent to 225 percent of global GDP. The global debt-to GDP ratio currently exceeds 318 percent, having risen for the first time since the third quarter of 2016. Just the US debt to GDP ratio alone currently exceeds 100 percent. This debt-to-GDP ratio is 12 percentage points higher than in 2009, during the aftermath of the global financial crisis. We are now at levels not seen since during the 1980s and the International Monetary Fund (IMF) expects this to continue on an upward trend.

Based on lies: Russiagate is like Iraq's WMD all over again "IndyWatch Feed World"

"The evidence against Trump and Russia is huge and mounting every day," declared liberal celebrity activist Rosie O'Donnell at a protest in front of the White House last week. "We see it, he can't lie about it," she added. "He is going down and so will all of his administration." "The charge is treason," O'Donnell declared. Protesters held held large letters that spelled it out: "T-R-E-A-S-O-N." O'Donnell is by no means alone in her sentiments. Trump's guilt in "Russiagate" is now assumed by much of the American left, and reaches greater levels of fervor with every passing day. This kind of partisan religiosity is not new. In the wake of the 2003 U.S. invasion of Iraq, conservative pundit Ann Coulter accused war opponents of "treason" and insisted of Saddam Hussein, "We know he had weapons of mass destruction." Coulter was confident and she wasn't alone. Virtually the entire mainstream American right-from pundits like Coulter and Sean Hannity to President George W. Bush and the Republican Congress-was deeply invested in the notion that Hussein possessed WMDs and that the Iraq war was justified based on that unshakeable premise. This belief was so ingrained for so long that many excitedly rushed to pretend that chemical weapons discovered in Iraq as reported by the New York Times in 2014 were somehow the same thing as the "mushroom cloud" the Bush administration said Saddam was capable of.

Will these victims ever receive justice? Ana Kasparian and Brett Erlich hosts of The Young Turks, break it down.

Pennsylvania grand jury report spanning over 1,300 pages was released on Tuesday, detailing various sexual abuses that occurred in six Pennsylvania dioceses, including one instance in which a priest received a letter of reference for a job at Walt Disney World after he quit following abuse claims.

The report included abuse charges against Father Edward George Ganster, who began his career with the church in 1971 as an assistant pastor at the Notre Dame of Bethlehem Church in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. In 2002, a victim who was then age 37 contacted the diocese and said that when he was a 14-year-old altar boy at St. Joseph in Frackville, Pennsylvania, Ganster fondled and groped him. On one occasion, Ganster dragged the boy across a living room floor, pulling him by the underwear. Ganster also beat the victim repeatedly, once using a metal cross, the report states. The abuse at the hands of Ganster lasted for over one-and-a-half years and all happened in St. Josephs Rectory.

Kickbacks and conflicts of interest: The multibillion-dollar mandatory child vaccination business "IndyWatch Feed World"

On July 1, 2016, Senate Bill 277 became law in California. It is the most stringent vaccination mandate in the country, requiring strict adherence to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) vaccine schedule for all school children in order to attend public or private school, while removing all religious or personal exemptions, and allowing only extremely limited medical exemptions. While SB277 supporters claim the science on vaccines is "settled" and vaccines are proven safe and effective, questions remain. Strict Adherence Since vaccines were first introduced in the 1950s, the number and types of vaccines has gone from a recommendation for polio and smallpox vaccines to seven recommended vaccines in the 1960s and to 69 mandatory doses of 16 vaccines, from infancy to 18 years of age. These include shots to ward off diphtheria, hepatitis B, haemophilus influenzae type b, measles, mumps, pertussis (whooping cough), poliomyelitis, rubella, tetanus and varicella (chickenpox). SB277 also requires mandatory adherence to any new vaccinations added to the schedule by the CDC. At last count, 270-plus additional vaccines are in the developmental pipeline.

Trumps military parade idea fantastic waste of money

8 February 2018

US politicians are pushing back against President Donald Trumps request for a military parade in Washington, DC.

It is an unusual request in the US, and critics say there are far better ways to spend the money.

Al Jazeeras Kimberly Halkett reports from Washington, DC.

Translated from Dutch NOS TV today:

Tanks rolling through the city, marching soldiers and warplanes overhead. United States President Trump has to wait a little longer. This November, on Veterans Day, a military parade would take place in Washington, but now it will not be sooner than next year, according to the Pentagon.

It has not been announced what the reason for the postponement is, but according to a source at the ministry it has to do with the costs. They were estimated by the White House at a maximum of 30 million dollars earlier this year, but according to the source, the estimate would now be more than 90 million dollars.

How to take a stand against manipulation "IndyWatch Feed World"

I've been busy working through some of my own stuff lately, while marveling at how closely my personal journey has been mirrored in the larger world. I wrote out the following as a personal exercise while meditating on all the similarities between abusive personal relationships with manipulators and our relationship as a species with the sociopathic plutocrats who rule us. I got a lot out of writing it, and it came out relatively readable, so I figured I'd publish it as-is in case anyone else finds it useful too. Here ya go! Humans are hackable. Ask any conman. Our desire to think we have control over our lives often hides this from ourselves, but most of us are highly suggestible and hypnotizable. If you think you're not, you're in more danger of being hacked than someone who has humbled themselves enough to see how this works in them. There's no need to be ashamed of being conned. Realizing that you've been, or are being, conned will naturally bring up feelings of embarrassment, but it's never your fault that someone's taken you for a ride. Get clear: conning someone is the crime; being conned is being a victim of that crime. That's how the law sees it in fraud cases. Manipulators would love you to think that it's your fault for allowing yourself to be manipulated, but that's just another manipulation isn't it? Manipulators use one of our most astounding, useful, and beautiful human characteristics when they con us - empathy. Our innately trusting nature is the reason why we've been able to collaborate on large scales to create and innovate in extraordinary ways unseen anywhere else in the animal kingdom. Because we learn by modeling, and we are shaped by the group we inhabit and our urge to create harmony will make life viscerally uncomfortable until we are back in alignment with our tribe. We are the peacemakers; we seek alignment, which is how we are paced by manipulators into aligning with their sick agendas. How gross is it then that our ability to empathize and relate to each other is one manipulators use to control us?

12 Top Former Intelligence Officials Join in Rebuking Trump "IndyWatch Feed World"

WASHINGTON Former U.S. security officials issued scathing rebukes to President Donald Trump on Thursday, admonishing him for yanking a top former spy chiefs security clearance in what they cast as an act of political vengeance. Trump said hed had to do something about the rigged federal probe of Russian election interference.

Trumps admission that he acted out of frustration about the Russia probe underscored his willingness to use his executive power to fight back against an investigation he sees as a threat to his presidency. Legal experts said the dispute may add to the evidence being reviewed by special counsel Robert Mueller.

In an opinion piece in The New York Times, former CIA Director John Brennan said Trumps decision, announced Wednesday, to deny him access to classified information was a desperate attempt to end Muellers investigation. Brennan, who served under President Barack Obama and has become a vocal Trump critic, called Trumps claims that he did not collude with Russia hogwash.

The only question remaining is whether the collusion amounts to a constituted criminally liable conspiracy, Brennan wrote.

Later Thursday, the retired Navy admiral who oversaw the raid that killed Osama bin Laden called Trumps moves McCarthy-era tactics. Writing in The Washington Post, William H. McRaven said he would consider it an honor if Trump would revoke his clearance, as well.

Through your actions, you have embarrassed us in the eyes of our children, humiliated us on the world stage and, worst of all, divided us as a nation, McRaven wrote.

That was followed late Thursday by a joint letter from 12 former senior intelligence officials calling Trumps action ill-considered and unprecedented. They said it has nothing to do with who should and should not hold security clearances and everything to do with an attempt to stifle free speech.

The signees included six former CIA directors, five former deputy directors and former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper. Two of the signees Clapper and former CIA Director Michael Hayden have appeared on a White House list of people who may also have their security clearances revoked.

Trump on Wednesday openly tied his decision to strip Brennan of his clearance and threaten nearly a dozen other former and current officials to the ongoing investigation into Russian election meddling and possible collusion with his campaign. In an interview with The Wall Street Journal, Trump again called the probe a rigged witch hunt and said these people led it!

So I think its something that had to be done, he said.

The presidents comments were a swift departure from the official explanation given by the Wh...

Technocracy In Education: A Continental System Of Human Conditioning "IndyWatch Feed World"


 


The real problem is choice. And choice must then lead naturally to mastery. As important we must learn how to teach a wider range of necessary skills as soon as practical. We certainly do this with most physical skills including music.


The first step is to at least push it all downstream in terms of our political world and let local interests have at it.   Recall reading writing and arithmetic did produce Abraham Lincoln and a single minded focus on real estate produced Donald Trump.  Of course both knew far more than they ever let on.


Far too much of our book learning has been used as a memory test.  That is an awful idea.  If you want to teach memory find a better way than memorizing garbage.  Summarizing in three paragraphs what the lesson taught you is effective.  That is what i do here and i have been doing that all along..

Betting on a Catastrophically Cooling World "IndyWatch Feed World"



This does not address the core question of why did the heat content of the Earth decline during the past three thousand years.  My answer to that is simple and it leads directly back to our solution.  The Sahara and the whole Middle East has lost its tree canopy.  It is now mostly abandoned desert.  This actually reflects massively incoming radiation back out into space.  Nighttime temperatures plummet.


This process has been underway throughout the whole Holocene but really got serious over the past two thousand years..    

The really good news is that the process has now started on a path of reversal as best practice has begun recovering those lands.  Merely predation control and tree grooming will do a lot.

In fact fencing of a barren square mile of the Sahel will allow buried root systems to rebound.  After a couple years of that you will have a robust cover.  Then applying the water box tech allows injecting commercial trees able to reach deep for water.  all this will lift the water table as well..

Long term we will return to Bronze Age conditions.

Obesophobia "IndyWatch Feed World"

In 1976, we ate more than we do today. So why are we fatter?

By George Monbiot, published in the Guardian 15th August 2018

When I saw the photo, I could scarcely believe it was the same country. The picture of Brighton Beach in 1976 featured in the Guardian a few weeks ago appeared to show an alien race. Almost everyone was slim. I mentioned it on social media, then went on holiday.

When I returned, I found that people were still debating it. The heated discussion prompted me to read more. How have we changed so far, so fast? To my astonishment, almost every explanation proposed in the thread turned out to be untrue.

Unfortunately, there are no consistent obesity data in the United Kingdom before 1988, at which point the incidence was already rising sharply. But in the US, the figures go back further. They show that, by chance, the inflection point was more or less 1976. Suddenly, at around the time when the photograph was taken, people started becoming fatter, and the trend has continued ever since.

The obvious explanation, many of those debating the photo insisted, is that were eating more. Several pointed out, not without justice, that food was generally disgusting in the 1970s. It was also more expensive. There were fewer fast food outlets and the shops shut earlier, ensuring that if you missed your tea, you went hungry. So heres the first big surprise: we ate more in 1976.

According to government figures, we currently consume an average of 2131 kcals per day, a figure that appears to include sweets and alcohol. But in 1976, we consumed 2280 kcal, excluding alcohol and sweets, or 2590 when theyre included. Can this really be true? I have found no reason to discredit the figures.

Others insisted that the cause is a decline in manual labour. Again, this seems to make sense, but again the data dont support it. A paper in the International Journal of Surgery states that adults working in unskilled manual professions are over 4 times more likely to be classified as morbidly obese compared with those in professional employment.

Military Parade Wont Happen in 2018, Government Announces "IndyWatch Feed World"

Truthdig editors note: To see an earlier report by Truthdig about the proposed parade, click here.

WASHINGTON The Defense Department says the Veterans Day military parade ordered up by President Donald Trump wont happen in 2018.

Col. Rob Manning, a Pentagon spokesman, said Thursday that the military and the White House have now agreed to explore opportunities in 2019.

The announcement came several hours after The Associated Press reported that the parade would cost about $92 million, according to U.S. officials citing preliminary estimates more than three times the price first suggested by the White House.

According to the officials, roughly $50 million would cover Pentagon costs for aircraft, equipment, personnel and other support for the November parade in Washington. The remainder would be borne by other agencies and largely involve security costs. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss early planning estimates that have not yet been finalized or released publicly.

Officials said the parade plans had not yet been approved by Defense Secretary Jim Mattis.

Mattis himself said late Thursday that he had seen no such estimate and questioned the media reports.

The Pentagon chief told reporters traveling with him to Bogota, Colombia, that whoever leaked the number to the press was probably smoking something that is legal in my state but not in most a reference to his home state of Washington, where marijuana use is legal.

He added: Im not dignifying that number ($92 million) with a reply. I would discount that, and anybody who said (that number), Ill almost guarantee you one thing: They probably said, I need to stay anonymous. No kidding, because you look like an idiot. And No. 2, whoever wrote it needs to get better sources. Ill just leave it at that.

The parades cost has become a politically charged issue, particularly after the Pentagon canceled a major military exercise planned for August with South Korea, in the wake of Trumps summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. Trump said the drills were provocative and that dumping them would save the U.S. a tremendous amount of money. The Pentagon later said the Korea drills would have cost $14 million.

Lt. Col. Jamie Davis, a Pentagon spokesman, said earlier Thursday that Defense Department planning for the parade continues and final details are still being developed. Any cost estimates are pre-decisional.

The parade was expected to include troops from all five armed services the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps and Coast Guard as well as units in period uniforms repr...

Vatican Voices Shame and Sorrow Over Abuse by U.S. Priests "IndyWatch Feed World"

VATICAN CITY The Vatican expressed shame and sorrow Thursday over a scathing Pennsylvania grand jury report about clergy who raped and molested children in six dioceses in that state, calling the abuse criminally and morally reprehensible and saying Pope Francis wants to eradicate this tragic horror.

In a written statement using uncharacteristically strong language for the Holy See even in matters like the long-running abuse scandals staining the U.S. church, Vatican spokesman Greg Burke sought to assure victims that the pope is on their side.

Pope Francis himself wasnt quoted in the statement, and there was no mention of demands in the United States among some Roman Catholics for the resignation of Cardinal Donald Wuerl, the archbishop of Washington.

The grand jury report made public this week accused the cardinal of helping to protect some molester priests while he was bishop of the Pennsylvania city of Pittsburgh. Wuerl has defended his actions in Pittsburgh while apologizing for the damage inflicted on victims.

Burke said the incidents of abuse graphically documented in the report were betrayals of trust that robbed survivors of their dignity and their faith.

The church must learn hard lessons from its past, and there should be accountability for both abusers and those who permitted abuse to occur, he said.

Victims and their advocates for decades have lamented that top Catholic churchmen repeatedly put the reputation of the church ahead of obligations to protect children from harm from pedophile priests.

In a sign that Pope Francis wants to end that pervasive mind set among church hierachy, including bishops and cardinals, he recently accepted the resignation from cardinals rank of former Washington archbishop Theodore McCarrick amid allegations that the American prelate had engaged in sexual misconduct.

Resignations by cardinals are extremely rare, and McCarricks was the first time a prelate lost his cardinals rank in a sexual abuse scandal.

Burke said Francis understands well how much these crimes can shake the faith and the spirit of believers and reiterates the call to make every effort to create a safe environment for minors and vulnerable adults in the church and in all of society.

The grand jury report documented how pedophile priests were often protected by church hierarchy or moved to other postings without the faithful being told of the priests sexual predatory history.

The long-awaited grand jury report was full of vivid examples of horrendous abuse. In one such example, a young girl was raped by a priest visiting her while she was in a hospital following surgery to remove her tonsils. In another, a priest tied up a victim with a rope in a confessional...

THE 3 TRIGGER TERMS BEING USED TO STOP CRITICAL THINKING "IndyWatch Feed World"


Its a strange world of newspeak we live in. What was once a society devoted to logic and progress is now being herded in echo chambers of thought control and anti-critical thinking. Without the ability to examine an issue impartially and completely there is little hope of maintaining liberty and freedom, as history repeatedly demonstrated.
Today, we find that thinking is a diminishing art, and in its place, sound bites and stop-thought terms are used to put the brakes on the mind. These terms are widely used as signals to prevent minds from looking too deeply at a topic or issue.

Massive Fiery Tornado Killed Fireman, California Agency Reports "IndyWatch Feed World"

SAN FRANCISCO In the history of California wildfires there has never been anything like it: A churning tornado filled with fire, the size of three football fields.

An official report describes in chilling detail the intensity of the rare fire phenomenon and how quickly it took the life of Redding firefighter Jeremy Stoke, who was enveloped in seconds as he tried to evacuate residents on July 26.

Three videos released with the report late Wednesday show the massive funnel of smoke and flames in a populated area on the edge of Redding, about 250 miles (400 kilometers) north of San Francisco.

The smoke-and-fire tornado was about 1,000 feet (300 meters) wide at its base and shot approximately 7.5 miles (12 kilometers) into the sky; it reached speeds of up to 165 mph (265 kph), with temperatures that likely exceeded 2,700 degrees Fahrenheit (1,480 degrees Celsius), said the report by the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection.

The tornado exploded in the middle of what was already a gigantic, devastating wildfire that started on July 23 with a spark from a vehicle driving on a flat tire. Stoke is one of eight people killed since the blaze started and destroyed nearly 1,100 homes. It was 76 percent contained as of Thursday.

A 17-year veteran of the fire department, Stoke was familiar with the dangers of wildfires. But this was unprecedented.

There have been several documented instances of a fire whirl in California, said Jonathan Cox, a Cal Fire battalion chief. But this is the largest documented fire whirl a fire-generated tornado in California history.

The 37-year-old fire inspector was driving his pickup truck down a Redding road, working on evacuating people from the larger blaze, when he radioed out a mayday call, according to the report.

Stoke said he needed a water drop and was getting burned over, the report said.

Then Stokes transmissions abruptly stopped.

An engine captain who heard the call asked for Stokes location. There was no response.

Fire dispatchers tried to locate him by pinging his cellphone.

Stokes remains were not found until the next day, and it took more time to analyze the ferocity of the tornado that ripped roofs off houses and flung power line towers, cars and a shipping container into the air near the spot where Stoke was overtaken by the flames, according to the report.

A confluence of weather conditions likely contributed to the tornado, including a combination of record heat in the Sacramento Valley it reached 113 degrees Fahrenheit (45 degrees Celsius) in Redding that day and cool high-speed winds coming from the coast, the report said.

It was something out...

The Turkey Crisis Cannot Be Resolved without Regime Change "IndyWatch Feed World"

The key to understanding Turkey is really simple Erdogan has lost the confidence of his people and the world. The free-fall in the Turkish lira should be no surprise. After years of rampant dollar borrowing, running large current account deficits in the face of both a lack of domestic military hardware production along with the lack of domestic oil production, throw in an autocratic-dictator with aspiration of empire building who then appoint a family member to bring down interest rates that he thinks is the source of inflation, and presto you get an economic cauldron that is impossible to survive.

Erdogan may be a dictator who rigs the elections, but that does NOT mean he can dictate that interest rates should be lower. Interest rates are not the SOURCE of inflation, they are the PRICE of inflation. He thinks that he can order interest rates lower and that will stop his economic crisis. Qatar should just kiss its $15 billion good-bye for there is NO HOPE of saving Turkey without a replacement of Erdogan. He will blame absolutely everyone BUT himself. His attempt to hunt down and prosecute anyone who speaks against him as treason is just a normal reaction of a dictator who has lost his mind. What comes next? Purges as with Stalin?

Real Estate Leverage Transition to the Reset "IndyWatch Feed World"

QUESTION: Hi Mr. Armstrong,

Thank you for the daily blogs on world events with an independent analysis that makes sense. I find them better than investment bank reports that just make up the pages.
Could you please elaborate on what happens to properties when the monetary reset comes? If people lose confidence in fiat money and hoard real assets, wouldnt that be a positive thing for properties? Or only if they are bought out in full (i.e. no mortgage)?
Thank you.
Regards,
S
ANSWER: The problem with real estate is the LEVERAGE. The value of a house has been escalated due to the fact that in the USA you can borrow using 30 years of future income. The crisis that unfolds is the collapse in the mortgage market. Then we will see a deleveraging of real estate. However, that said, real estate makes the transition as a hedge during a reset.  For example, during the German hyperinflation that led to a currency reset, that new currency that was issued was backed by real estate not gold. Keep in mind that as the currency declines, then the repayment cost of a mortgage declines. One the one hand, mortgages will be unavailable but those who hold the mortgage lose the most. Therefore, you should be able to pay off your mortgage with cheap currency assuming you have hedged and make it through the transition.

California Real Estate Peaks and Begin a Crash "IndyWatch Feed World"

California has joined the states with not just the highest taxes in America, but it has become one of those states that people are just leaving resulting i9n a net outward-migration. There is a logical consequence when a state becomes a place people are trying to flee from real estate MUST decline in value. Already, sales of both new and existing houses and condominiums in Southern California has declined 11.8% year over year. Prices rallied and reached a record high in 2018. The median price paid for all Southern California homes that were sold in June 2018 was a record high reaching $536,250, according to CoreLogic. This was reported as a 7.3% increase compared to June of 2017. When you see such short-term surges in a market, that is often the sign of how every market peaks. Real estate is no exception.

Many have touted for years that California property leads the nation. Therefore, whatever trend appears they will spread to the rest of the nation. While we do not necessarily agree with that statement, nonetheless, real estate will be on the decline in most states where taxes are rising. Property is still going to rise in the 7 states without income tax. For those who are unfamiliar with Socrates, we have created indexes for real estate on a worldwide basis.

Reader: Attention all True Patriots "IndyWatch Feed World"

Submitted to Operation Disclosure | By Jeff

Attention All True Patriots,

After several months of reading Anna Von Reitz articles, I thought it would be nice to have a simple chart comparing where we are at (From False) to where we should be (To True).

If the American people really knew what was going on and how they have been deceived, there would be revolts instantaneously.

Take a look at these brief "talking points" and let them sink in. Each point is very profound and has many layers of deceit (on the False side) and truth (on the True side) behind them.

Put on your contemplation cap,

Jeff

P.S. Here is an "Exonerated" excerpt at article #1151 to show that Anna is, and has been, on the right track all along:

"So we finally won our case. Donald Trump sicced teams of lawyers and archivists and historians onto all the information we've provided and guess what? We stand exonerated. All that we have brought forward has been proven, nailed down, and tied up with a bow, complete with all the research and case law and historical documentation.

Count that much done and over.

President Trump now knows -- definitively -- what is wrong, what the game is, what the game has been all along, who is responsible, and from what he has done so far, he is swiftly taking care of business. But he can't do it alone.

Florida Declares State of Emergency As Toxic Red Tide Causes Respiratory Issues "IndyWatch Feed World"

An official state of emergency has been declared in Florida as there has been some kind of toxic red tide outbreak in Southwest Florida. While this is something that happens naturally according to officials, it has already killed manatees and so much more.

Red tide has toxic effects and when it occurs can have drastic effects of marine life. Red tide is basically a toxic algae bloom. This problem is one that was lingering since October according to USA Today. The affected counties will finally now that things are as bad as they are be getting resources and funds to be able to combat this issue. Red tide for those who do not know affects the central nervous system of aquatic organisms an can lead to respiratory irritation in humans.

The red tide has already killed hundreds of sea turtles, manatees, and millions on millions of pounds of fish thus far. This takes a serious toll on everyone who has to be near it. Many locals have noted respiratory complications but nothing too severe thus far. This comes just a month after another state of emergency was declared in other counties due to blue-green algae outbreaks from Lake Okeechobee discharges, things are not going to be getting better anytime soon as this is no easy problem to fix.

The Washington Post reported as follows on this topic:

Citizens in retirement communities are reporting respiratory distress from the vapors of the microscopic red-tide organism called Karenia brevis. A recent study found a 50 percent spike in hospital visits due to respiratory problems during red-tide blooms.

The red tide has been gradually moving north, to the mouth of Tampa Bay, according to state tracking data. For many places, the daily reports continue to say Water Color: Dark and Respiratory Irritation: Intense. Worst of all are the reports that state Dead Fish: Heavy.

Rick Bartleson, a research scientist with the Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation, said water samples offshore show lethally high concentrations of algae.

Theres no fish left. Red tide killed them all, he said. All of our concentrations of red tide are still high and would still kill fish if they were out there.

The algae is found in marine environments for most of the year, but the past two months have produced high concentrations, said Kelly Richmond, a spokeswoman for the Florida...

Russia looks toward innovation, may develop reusable rockets "IndyWatch Feed World"

Russia may develop reusable first stages for its rockets, which would likely land horizontally rather than in the style of SpaceX's Falcons, Roscosmos chief Dmitry Rogozin has said. He also had words for SpaceX boss Elon Musk. The new heavy Soyuz-5 rocket, currently developed by Russia, must become more powerful yet remain cheaper than the products supplied by the competitors, the recently-elected head of the Russian space corporation told TASS in an extensive interview on Thursday. While Moscow is looking into adding reusable elements to the Soyuz-5 to further lower launch costs, reusability is not a universal solution to achieve this goal, Rogozin believes. Musk's SpaceX, which is currently the only company to have launched reusable rockets commercially, manages to cut the costs by other means, the Russian space boss pointed out.

The reasons why anti-authoritarian doctors are so rare "IndyWatch Feed World"

"Don't be stupid, be a smarty, come and join the Nazi Party" is an intentionally obnoxious line from the hilarious "Springtime for Hitler" in Mel Brook's The Producers. Not hilarious is the reality that doctors in Nazi Germany were "smarties" in Brook's sardonic sense, as they joined the Nazi SS in a far higher proportion than the German general population. Also not funny is that U.S. doctors and healthcare professionals-from their "aiding torture" (description used in the CIA Inspector General's Report) at Guantnamo Bay, Abu Ghraib, and elsewhere to the more recent drugging of detained child migrants-have served U.S. authoritarian policies. In the Journal of Medical Ethics in 2012, Alessandra Colaianni reports "More than 7% of all German physicians became members of the Nazi SS during World War II, compared with less than 1% of the general population. . . . By 1945, half of all German physicians had joined the Nazi party, 6% before Adolf Hitler gained power."

As the Free Thought Project pointed out last week, a concerted effort by multiple social media companies and tech giants was formed to remove Alex Jones from their platforms. These platforms, including Facebook, claimed Jones rhetoric violated their terms of service, so they effectively eradicated his audience on social media. (...)

While Jones may distribute a ton of questionable content, hes never posted anything illegal and, he has never posted videos of child porn to any of his platforms.

The failure of US elites to accept reality is an existential threat to us all "IndyWatch Feed World"

Russia's Prime Minister Dimitry Medvedev recently declared that the latest round of US sanctions to be imposed on Russia constituted "economic warfare" and that Russia would respond "economically, politically, or in any other way, if required." One is tempted to ask: why has it taken so long? Russia has been the subject of what Andrew Korybko calls "hybrid warfare" for decades. The only post World War 2 period when there was a lessening of the attacks was during the Yeltsin years in the 1990s. That period, when Russia's economy was pillaged, was even more catastrophic for Russia than the sanctions and relentless negative propaganda that has ensued ever since. The hybrid warfare, of which the sanctions are only a part, are a substitute for actual hot war which the neocon elements in successive American administrations have never taken off their agenda. That also is not a recent phenomenon. Operation Unthinkable was a British plan conceived by the long time anti-Russian Prime Minister Winston Churchill to continue the war after the defeat of Germany in 1945 by invading Russia. The plan even included incorporating troops from the defeated German forces.

Study shows that robots have the power to brainwash children and alter their behavior for the worse "IndyWatch Feed World"

Robot pressure could soon replace peer pressure as a chief concern amongst parents with new research finding that children can be significantly influenced by machines, even when the droids are obviously wrong. The study asked children aged between seven and nine to look at a screen showing four lines and identify which two match in length. When they carried out the simple task alone the kids got the answers right almost every time. However, when they did it alongside a robot their accuracy dropped by 12 percent and almost all of their wrong answers were found to match those of the robot.

Mathematics everywhere: Researchers solve age-old spaghetti mystery "IndyWatch Feed World"

If you happen to have a box of spaghetti in your pantry, try this experiment: Pull out a single spaghetti stick and hold it at both ends. Now bend it until it breaks. How many fragments did you make? If the answer is three or more, pull out another stick and try again. Can you break the noodle in two? If not, you're in very good company. The spaghetti challenge has flummoxed even the likes of famed physicist Richard Feynman '39, who once spent a good portion of an evening breaking pasta and looking for a theoretical explanation for why the sticks refused to snap in two. Feynman's kitchen experiment remained unresolved until 2005, when physicists from France pieced together a theory to describe the forces at work when spaghetti - and any long, thin rod - is bent. They found that when a stick is bent evenly from both ends, it will break near the center, where it is most curved. This initial break triggers a "snap-back" effect and a bending wave, or vibration, that further fractures the stick. Their theory, which won the 2006 Ig Nobel Prize, seemed to solve Feynman's puzzle. But a question remained: Could spaghetti ever be coerced to break in two?

"The Karamazov Question" "IndyWatch Feed World"

"Tell me yourself, I challenge you answer. Imagine that you are creating a fabric of human destiny with the object of making men happy in the end, giving them peace and rest at last, but that it was essential and inevitable to torture to death only one tiny creature... and to found that edifice on its unavenged tears: would you consent to be the architect on those conditions? Tell me, and tell the truth.

Another Actor Calls Out Satanic Hollywood Pedophiles "IndyWatch Feed World"

Its truly shocking just how many revelations have come to light with regards to the physical and sexual abuse of children within the realm of the global elite.

The big four areas where this activity seems to be most prevalent nowadays is within politics, the Vatican, the military industrial complex and inside of Hollywood. Within each section, there are numerous examples to pull from.

In politics, especially within the last couple of years, information is hitting the mainstream like it never has before, one example would be the fact that an NBC news report implicated Hillary Clinton in covering up a massive pedophile ring in the heart of the State Department, another would be multiple ex-high ranking political officials claiming that both the Clintons engage in sex with minors, pointing towards their close relationship with Jeffrey Epstein (who also has Royal Family connections).

"The Most Beautiful People..." "IndyWatch Feed World"

The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity and an understanding of life that fills them with compassions, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.

Could Our Deepest Fears Hold the Key to Ending Violence? "IndyWatch Feed World"

Could Our Deepest Fears Hold the Key to Ending Violence?
by Frances Moore Lapp

In his book Violence, psychologist James Gilligan asked a Massachusetts prison inmate, What do you want so badly that you would sacrifice everything in order to get it? The inmate declared, Pride. Dignity. Self-esteem and Ill kill every motherf****r in that cell block if I have to in order to get it. Or, as another inmate said, Ive got to have my self-respect, and Ive declared war on the whole world till I get it. 

Pride, dignity, respect, agencya sense that we matterthese are feelings largely shaped interpersonally. We depend upon the social fabric to get them. But for many, these things are in tatters. Fewer and fewer of us feel a sense of belonging, and we're more and more preoccupied with the desperate scramble for belongings. We see fears face everywhere, whether in a Congress debating assault weapons or in schools introducing lock-down drills. French philosopher Patrick Viveret has called fear the emotional plague of our planet.

Exopolitics: Extraterrestrials Interrogated & Tortured in Secret Underground/Space Prisons "IndyWatch Feed World"

Extraterrestrials Interrogated & Tortured in Secret Underground/Space Prisons

WRITTEN BY DR MICHAEL SALLA ON AUGUST 16, 2018

In another bombshell interview on the Cosmic Disclosure Gaia TV series, insiders Emery Smith and Corey Goode have revealed their direct knowledge and participation in classified programs that involved the detention, interrogation, torture and dissection of human looking extraterrestrials. Their stunning eyewitness accounts provide powerful evidence that atrocities have been occurring in classified programs against extraterrestrial visitors who are almost indistinguishable from modern humans.

The program host, David Wilcock, began by asking Goode to explain what the Intruder Intercept and Interrogate Program was all about.

Its a program that is similar in part to the Men in Black. What this Intercept and Interrogate Program does is that if an intruder flies into our [solar] system, doesnt give a friend or foe signal and is intercepted, they are taken from their ship. Or, what happens in most cases is that ETs have made it to the Earth and are here secretly blending in as one of us.

This group will go in retrieve the people that are here, we call the ETs people, the people that are here without permission, bring them up to a certain station, and their interrogation would begin to find out what was going on.

This group also acted as a police force for non-terrestrial groups that are here with permission. They helped keep them apart, and when they (ETs) had issues they acted just like police.

Anna Von Reitz -- The Big Switch "IndyWatch Feed World"

The Big Switch



Source: Paul Stramer | By Anna Von Reitz

So how did your nationality get combined with citizenship? A friend from Australia recently sent me a nicely summarized list of legislative acts from the 1920 through the late 60's, and what it very neatly summarizes is a fundamental change that happened in the 1940's and which has never been corrected.

At the beginning of the legislative history there were numerous "Nationality Acts" in the 1920's and 30's. Then, beginning in the 1940's all of these became "Nationality and Citizenship Acts". This is where your nationality got confused and "lumped together" with your political status as a "citizen" or not.

The organizations passing all these "Nationality and Citizenship Acts" were all functioning in Territorial jurisdictions, so it was no big leap for them to include "citizenship" presumptions with the topic of "nationality". For them, the two are synonymous.

If you live your life as a "resident" (temporary sojourner) in the "State of Wyoming" (a Territorial State of State) you are a federal "citizen" by definition, so that your nationality and citizenship are tied together.

If you live your life at home in Wyoming, you may or may not be a "citizen". It is entirely possible to live your entire life and never be employed by any "federally connected" employer and to never hold any office related to any federal corporation.

And that is the fundamental difference between "us" and "THEM".

We have no natural obligation to serve and obey the government. The government has a natural obligation to serve and obey us. Our nationality is not tied to any obligatory citizenship, but theirs is. And therein lies the rub and the misunderstanding.

Baffling Ancient Quarry Found In Italy? "IndyWatch Feed World"

There are many ancient places upon our planet, which we are yet to cover upon our channel.

Many intriguing, unexplainable, and thus, controversial ancient ruins, that although, more than likely discovered, and noted by an academic at some point within modern history, has since been banished to selective ignorance, deliberately overlooked. This, often in favour of retaining ones funding, within a certain field of study.

Ancient quarries is an area of study, that is indeed filled with these ancient anomalies.
Seemingly machined stones litter many of the more intriguing locations, one of them undoubtedly Aswan Quarry. Not only containing an unfinished obelisk of gigantic proportions, but also, seemingly later additions, carved, as if left by a later advanced civilisation.

Additionally, the more prehistoric quarries that can be found dotting Americas great lakes, notably superior, copper mines and quarries,,, fly in the face of currently attested chronology, regarding ancient man.
We presumed that the most compelling of these sites, had indeed since their initial modern re-discovery, been widely studied by alternative researchers.

However, Cave di Cusa seems to have been largely overlooked, regardless of its astonishing ancient relics, which can be found at the site.

Located 3 kilometres south of Campobello di Mazara, in the province of Trapani, Italy
The entire quarry, and indeed the length of the ruin, is an astonishing 1.8 kilometres long, located upon a natural ridge spanning from east to west.

According to academia, this site was quarried from the beginning of the first half of the 6th century BC.
This, regardless of the clearly shifted, mysteriously abandoned, gigantic unexplainable megaliths, which still litter the site.

We feel, with such unexplainably large stones, seemingly left in-sitchu at the site, like many other unexplained sites that can be found on earth, were built by an advanced ancient civilisation, capable of building with such enormous stones.

The quarry was abandoned in 409 BC when it was captured by the Carthaginians.

Regardless of academias limited opinions regarding the quarry, we feel the most interesting and possibly most controversial anomalies to unravel, are the abandoned cuts still at the site.

Just what were these ancient people making?

Why did they abandon these curious megaliths where they lay today?

How were they able to shift such enormous stones?

We feel there is strong evidence to suggest that cave di cusa, was an ancient quarry, once used and mysteriously abandoned, by a lost civilisation once capable of shifting unimaginably enormous stones, and as such, is highl...

The Lessons of Charlottesville, a Year Later : How the Terrain Has Changed "IndyWatch Feed World"

A year after the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville that left one dead and countless injured, we can see how fascists, police, centrists, and others have learned from experience and adjusted their strategies. Have those of us who oppose the rise of fascism done the same? Read on for our analysis.

For more background on the events of August 2017 in Charlottesville, consult the reading list at the end.

Fascists and the Far Right

Some fascist organizations disintegrated after the debacle in Charlottesville, and many still havent recovered. Patriot Prayer was in disarray; Richard Spencer scaled back his efforts to speak on university campuses; the Traditionalist Workers Party collapsed. A few months after Unite the Right, some anti-fascists felt confident enough to declare a provisional victory. However, a year later, fascists are reorganizing and trying new things.

Discouraged from pre-announced mass actions like Unite the Right, the explicitly Nazi organization Patriot Front has demonstrated a new pattern of surprise attacks via their appearances at the Houston Anarchist Book Fair and the San Antonio Occupy ICE camp. Thus far, these appear to be chiefly aimed at producing video footage with which to make advertisements for fascism, but the model could be used for much more destructive means.

Meanwhile, Joey Gibson of Patriot Prayer has figured out that if fascists can just hold off on publicly murdering people and deny having ties to overt white supremacistshowever dishonestlythey can resume slowly building momentum while letting the police do most of their dirty work. Hes working with a volatile sector of the populationProud Boys in Pinochet shirtsbut he seems to be making his approach succeed where other fascist organizers have failed. We will surely see more groups like his attempting to rebrand fascist politics under the umbrella of patriotism, Christianity (or...

Scientist Claims Sex Robots Could Make Relationships Stronger "IndyWatch Feed World"

Everyone has their own opinions on sex robots, but I bet youve never thought about this aspect of them. Could they actually benefit relationships in general?

Dr. Marina Adshade from the University of British Columbia has been speaking out a lot recently about how sex robots could potentially become a very important part of living the married life. You might end up somewhere in the future finding them to be as common as your average household appliances. No, Im not joking.

Adshade wrote an article on Slate that really puts things into perspective and shows a more positive side to these sex robots. She wrote that in the sex-oriented society we live in they could strengthen marriages and cut down on cheating. While she says it will disentangle the association between sexual intimacy and marriage it will lead to higher quality marriages as a whole.

She continues as follows:

Those who fear that sexbot technology will have a negative impact on marriage rates see sexbot technology as a substitute to sexual access in marriage. If they are correct, a decrease in the price of sexual access outside of marriage will decrease the demand for sexual access in marriage, and marriage rates will fall. It could just as easily be argued, however, that within marriage sexual access and household production are complements in consumptionin other words, goods or services that are often consumed together, like tea and sugar, or cellular data and phone apps. If that is the case, then, consumer theory predicts that easy access to sexbot technology will actually increase the rate of lifetime marriage, since a fall in the price of a good increases the demand for complements in consumption, just as a fall in the price of cellular data would likely increase demand for phone streaming services. Moreover, if sexual access through sexbot technology is a complement to household production, then we could observe an increase in the quality of marriages and, as a result, a reduction in rates of divorce.

There is an economic principlenamed after French chemist Henry Louis Le Chtelierthat says that whenever a constraint on individual decision-making is removed, the outcome of that decision can be no worse than the outcome that would have existed with that constraint imposed. The need to find someone with whom you are mutually sexually compatible necessarily imposes a constraint on the decision of whom to marry. Removing that constraint on the choice of a marital partner cannot, by Le Chteliers principle, lead to...

From Swartz's help in the development of the basic internet protocol RSS to his co-founding of Reddit, his fingerprints are all over the internet. But it was Swartz's groundbreaking work in social justice and political organizing combined with his aggressive approach to information access that ensnared him in a two-year legal nightmare. It was a battle that ended with the taking of his own life at the age of 26. Aaron's story touched a nerve with people far beyond the online communities in which he was a celebrity. This film is a personal story about what we lose when we are tone deaf about technology and its relationship to our civil liberties.

After Saying Social Media Was A Menace to Society George Soros is Investing in Faceook and Twitter "IndyWatch Feed World"

George Soros is at it again. While he recently denounced social media and referred to it as a menace to society he is now investing in several unexpected places.

Soros has scaled back his Google holdings and is now investing in things like Facebook, Spotify, Pandora, and Twitter. While this might not seem strange to most, it does come off as surprising considering the things he has said in the past in regards. Sure, people can have a change of heart but could there be more motive behind this than earnings?

Investing and things of the sort can be confusing and it is without a doubt a game of chance in many aspects. Pulling out of Google more and cutting down on Amazon shares could prove to be a bad decision as time goes on. That being said, only time will tell.

RT reported as follows in regards to what Soros had said:

Just a few months ago, Soros called social media companies a menace to society and denounced Facebook and Google for deceiving users by manipulating their attention and directing it towards their own commercial purposes.

He also compared social media platforms to casinos that entice customers to gamble away all of their money.

Something very harmful and maybe irreversible is happening to human attention in our digital age, Soros said at the World Economic Forum in Davos this January. Social media companies are inducing people to give up their autonomy, while the power to shape the publics attention is increasingly concentrated in the hands of a few companies, he added.

Soros Fund Management had reportedly sold off 300,000 Facebook shares in November 2017.

Pandora and Spotify were among his largest new purchases and account for millions as is. Revenue for both is rapidly accelerating. What do you think about all of this? Do you think Soros is working through his dislike of social media to make a buck or do you think that there could be a bigger picture at play?

"How to Get Good at What Youre Bad At"

"Its been almost two years since Ive become my own boss, and I am still fairly bad at it. Any real boss would fire me. I take long lunches and dont come back sometimes. I defer important tasks till the next day because it suddenly seems more important to go get groceries in the middle of the afternoon. It takes me eight hours to do three hours of writing.

"Making Your Best Guess" "IndyWatch Feed World"

"Making Your Best Guess"
by Arthur Silber

We are not gods, and we are not omniscient. We cannot foretell the future with certainty. Most often, cultural and political changes are terribly complex. It can be notoriously difficult to predict exactly where a trend will take us, and we can be mistaken. We do the best we can: if we wish to address certain issues seriously, we study history, and we read everything that might shed light on our concerns. We consult what the best thinkers of our time and of earlier times have said and written. We challenge everyone's assumptions, including most especially our own. That last is often very difficult. If we care enough, we do our best to disprove our own case. In that way, we find out how strong our case is, and where its weaknesses may lie.

Barring extraordinary circumstances, we cannot be certain that a particular development represents a critical turning point at the time it occurs. If we dare to say, "This is the moment the battle was lost," only future events will prove whether we were correct. We do the best we can, based on our understanding of how similar events have unfolded in the past, and in light of our understanding of the underlying principles in play. We can be wrong.

Artist Colorizes Historic Black-and-White Photos and the Result is Breathtaking [20 Images] "IndyWatch Feed World"

As humans, we have many senses through which we can experience and explore the world: sight, sound, taste, hearing, and smell. Which one do you rely upon most? If sight is your answer, you have something in common with the rest of the world.

Because humans are visual creatures, it can be hard for some to reflect on the past and imagine what life must have been like even a few decades ago. Fortunately, emerging technology is helping with this conundrum. Professional colorist from Brazil, Marina Amaral, recently recolored a series of old photos. To say the result is breathtaking is an understatement.

As Bored Panda reports, Amaral is a Photoshop enthusiast and a history buff. Recoloring photos is a way she can merge both interests. In 2015, Amaral was scrolling through a history forum on the internet when she came across colorized photos of WWI. Inspired by the images, Amaral began adding color to old black and white photos. Most importantly, she does extensive research on the images to ensure every detail is as realistic as possible.

The recolored images allow people to experience and reflect on the past in a new way. Said Amaral, Each photo is made to be realistic by recognizing the value behind each one of them, respecting and preserving their stories, paying attention to the finer details and maintaining their original essence.

Every completed work has gone through long and in-depth research, and is supported by the opinions of experts in each particular area if necessary, to faithfully reproduce the original colors and atmosphere, she added. My work ranges from simple portraits to complex and detailed images, taken from various historical periods covering a wide range of topics.

Following are 10+ examples of Amarals work:

Google Sets Record Straight on Location History Setting "IndyWatch Feed World"

SAN FRANCISCOGoogle has revised a help page that erroneously described how its Location History setting works, clarifying for users that it still tracks their location even if they turn the setting off.

On Monday, an Associated Press investigation revealed that several Google apps and websites store user location even if users have turned off Location History. Google has not changed its location-tracking practice in that regard.

But its help page now states: This setting does not affect other location services on your device. It also acknowledges that some location data may be saved as part of your activity on other services, like Search and Maps.

Previously, the page stated: With Location History off, the places you go are no longer stored.

The AP observed that the change occurred midday Thursday, three days after the APs initial report.

The AP investigation found that even with Location History turned off, Google stores user location when, for instance, the Google Maps app is opened, or when users conduct Google searches that arent related to location.

In a Thursday statement to the AP, Google said: We have been updating the explanatory language about Location History to make it more consistent and clear across our platforms and help centers.

Jonathan Mayer, a Princeton computer scientist and former chief technologist for the Federal Communications Commissions enforcement bureau, said the wording change was a step in the right direction, but doesnt fix the underlying confusion Google created by storing location information in multiple ways.

The notion of having two distinct ways in which you control how your location data is stored is inherently confusing, he said Thursday. I cant think off the top of my head of any major online service that architected their location privacy settings in a similar way.

Huge tech companies are under increasing scrutiny over their data practices, following a series of privacy scandals at Facebook and new data-privacy rules recently adopted by the European Union. Last year, the business news site Quartz found that Google was tracking Android users by collecting the addresses of nearby cellphone towers even if all location services were off. Google changed the practice and insisted it never recorded the data anyway.

Critics say Googles insistence on tracking its users locations stems from its drive to boost advertising revenue.

Leos Are the Ultimate Attention-Starved Narcissists That Never Stop Talking About Themselves "IndyWatch Feed World"

Leos are easily one of the more prominent and outspoken signs of the zodiac but not always in a good way. In fact, they could be considered quite narcissistic at best

Sure, they might have good intentions here and there but theyre really selfish and always have to make things about themselves. While they do have their positive points, they arent as fun to be around as they seem. They are charming and people love to be around them but why they are so inspirational is quite confusing.

The Leo is driven by his or her desire to be loved and admired by those in their lives. They love the spotlight and always want to be in charge. A lot of the things they do are literally just attempts at getting people to pay attention to them. Leos tend to rant to others but not pay attention when others come to them to speak. Sounds a lot like a narcissist now, doesnt it?

Narcissists are also conceited, refuse to listen unless the topic is about them, and crave the spotlight. They want attention and to be admired. Isnt it interesting how the Leo has so many of these traits?

Leos can be too much for a lot of people and when someone says something negative or something bad happens they take it very personally. If you make them feel left out they will without a doubt come for you. They know exactly how to push the buttons of others and tend to forget that while their sign comes with the Lion (king of the jungle) they are not actual royalty.

Sometimes its important to look at the bad parts of our signs and honestly, no sign is without fault. Leos love to be catered to and dont like to do any catering. They are very stubborn and refuse to compromise in most situations. They give advice whether it is wanted or not and they tend to have a really bad attitude. Sounds a lot like a narcissist now doesnt it?

Their arrogance really does know no bounds. That being said, they can be quite generous when they want to be and not all Leos are bad. We all have our flaws, do you know any Leos? Do they fit the descriptions above?

10 Signs Youre Depressed And Dont Even Know It "IndyWatch Feed World"

Its a common misconception that depression is a one-size fits all disease that everyone experiences the same. Actually, depression comes in many forms, making it difficult to truly spot for many.

Depression is very complex and so it feels different for everyone. Some people assume that they are facing something completely different or underplay their suffering entirely. Some people dont realize that what they are going through is as intense as it is, they think that perhaps other people are feeling this way as well or that there is something wrong with them but they arent quite sure what. To have depression, especially a severe case and not even truly understand what youre facing in the slightest is a terrifying thing.

Below I am going to go over some of the more common signs that you might be facing depression whether you have identified it or not. Depression affects millions of people each year, day in and day out. Not all of the people with depression are going to actually seek help and that results in a lot more suffering. If youre going through something, dont be afraid to open up about it. No struggle is too small, so if you hurt, your hurt is real, so dont downplay it.

10 Signs Youre Going Through Depression Without Realizing It:

1. You have literally no self-esteem.

You might have thought of yourself highly before all of this but since you have been feeling differently you really dont see yourself the same anymore. Your mind is always tearing you down in different ways. Your self-esteem is non-existent.

2. You struggle with concentrating and your memory kind of sucks.

You are not always able to really concentrate. You go through days or weeks on end that are hard for you to focus. During this time your memory goes to shit as well. You are constantly forgetting things.

3. You always feel exhausted and down in the dumps.

No matter how much rest you get, you still feel exhausted. Its like no matter what youre always behind and upset. The more you try the worse things get.

4. Nothing seems to bring you any pleasure.

You feel like even the things you used to love to do and people you used to love to see are not bringing you happiness anymore. You dont get excited about going to do things. Sometimes, you might not feel much at all.

5. You constantly dwell on past mistakes and things of the sort.

You are always overthinki...

Laboratory Tests Reveal Round-Up Weed Killer in Popular Childrens Cereals "IndyWatch Feed World"

Monsanto has once again made headlines as a San Francisco court made a landmark ruling, declaring the companys well-known weed killer Roundup as a contributing factor to a former groundskeepers cancer.  Alarmingly, however, new laboratory tests have revealed that a number of popular oat-based childrens cereals contain the cancer-causing weed killer.

Its a company that has long been wrapped up in controversy, Monsanto is a corporate giant whose name keeps coming up in news headlines and online articles. With a history including the production of Agent Orange, a chemical used in the invasion of Vietnam through to todays debates surrounding aspartame and genetically modified foods, some will go as far as referring to them as the Worlds Most Evil Corporation.

One of the companys biggest products, Roundup, is a highly recognized weed killer. The company has come under fire due to the risk associated with the products primary ingredient, glyphosate. While the research is still inconclusive, due to a number of contradicting styles, many experts worry about the potential connection between glyphosate and cancer, as the product is sprayed on a large portion of the nations crops. The most commonly used pesticide in the United States, its incredibly important that we discover the impact of this chemical on our long-term health and well-being.

The EWGs Childrens Health Initiative recently commissioned a number of independent laboratory tests, focusing on popular granola bars, snack bars, oat-based cereals, and oatmeal. They had a total of 45 conventional products and 16 organic products tested, and the results were shocking. Nearly three-quarters of the products that were tested were found to contain levels of glyphosate that exceeded the accepted safe levels for regular consumption.  The biggest offenders, according to the test results, were two samples of Quaker Old-Fashioned Oats. Other products that returned a higher level test result include Cheerios Toasted Whole Grain Oat Cereal, Lucky Charms, and Nature Valley Crunchy Granola Bars.

When approached by KTVU, Quaker Oats released the statement:

We proudly stand by the safety and quality of our Quaker products. Producing healthy, wholesome food is Quakers number one priority, and weve been doing that for more than 140 years.

A Glass Of Red Wine Before Bed Can Help You Shed Some Extra Pounds "IndyWatch Feed World"

A new study claims that drinking a glass of red wine before can help women shed those extra stubborn pounds.  Red wine contains a specific polyphenol known as reservatrol which acts as an antioxidant in the body.

According to research conducted at Washington State University and Harvard Medical School, the classic red wine beverage is great for those looking to drop a few unwanted pounds of fat. According to Positive Outlooks Blog, the reservatrol converts our white fats into obesity-fighting beige fat that is a lot easier for the body to break down.  This wonderful antioxidant-like agent also suppresses ones appetite, so drinking red wine before going to bed might help you not give in to your midnight snack cravings as well should you be so inclined.

For those who are not big drinkers or if you are just not a fan of red wine, you can still reap the same fat-fighting benefits by eating blueberries and peanuts. Both contain a high level of reservatrol as well.

In a separate study published in the Archives of Internal Medicine in 2010, those women with normal-weight who drink one glass of red wine a day, are less likely to become overweight or obese.  The study also noted that heavy drinking of any type of alcoholic beverage can result in weight gain, but thats not the only problem with over drinking. Consuming alcoholic drinks beyond the recommended moderate level (one glass of wine for women and two glasses of wine for men) has been shown to lead to liver inflammation, a huge spike in your blood pressure, and an increase in your risk of acquiring cancer.

Obviously, cleaning up your diet and eating whole foods as opposed to processed foods will also positively benefit the body in many more way than just the loss of a few pounds.  One could also consider drinking more water instea...

The Truth About Social Security Its Critics Refuse to Acknowledge "IndyWatch Feed World"

President Franklin Roosevelt signed our Social Security system into law eighty-three years ago today, on August 14, 1935. It has stood the test of time.

Social Security protects us against the economic consequences of risks to which all of us are vulnerable. Rich or poor, any of us can suffer a devastating, disabling accident or illness. Rich or poor, any of us can die prematurely, leaving young children behind. Rich or poor, all of us hope to grow old. When we do, if we are to have a dignified and independent retirement, we need a guaranteed steady income which we cannot and will not outlive.

Social Security addresses universal economic risks that have always been with us and always will be. That explains why more than 170 countries today have some form of social security. It also explains Social Securitys deep and longstanding popularity in our country. In a survey conducted in 1936one year after the enactment of Social Security, before a penny of benefits was expended68 percent of those surveyed expressed approval for the new and untested program. By 1944, that percentage was a nearly unanimous 96 percent. That high level of support has been consistent throughout the last eighty years.

Despite Social Securitys more than eighty-year history, some elites either do not understand Social Security or willfully refuse to understand it. They talk about providing benefits to those who need them, as if the program were government largesse, which it is not. Rather, Social Security is insurance that is earned through work and paid for with premiums regularly deducted from workers pay.

In addition, elites often speak as if the trust funds were some kind of gimmick, somehow less real than private pension trust funds. Perhaps most absurd are those who claim that what the creators of Social Security intended is not the program we now have.

Indeed, todays discussions of Social Security are replete with revisionist historystatements made today about what was or was not intended by its original creators and champions. Some of todays revisionist statements are zombie lies: Claims made and refuted again and again over the last eighty years; claims that refuse to die.

Former Senator Alan Simpson (R-WY), for example, has stated that Social Security was never intended as a retirement program. It was set up in 37 and 38 to take care of people who were in distressditch diggers, wage earners. Nationally syndicated columnist George Will claims, People forget Social Security was advocated in the 1930s, as a way of getting people to quit working, because they thought we were confined to a permanent scarcity of jobs in this country.

Corporate Media Join in Editorializing for Press Freedom "IndyWatch Feed World"

Some 300 newspapers, large and small, joined today in publishing, often on their front pages, editorials defending the First Amendments freedom of the press, often making note of their own efforts to combat current threats to that freedom posed by President Trumps attacks on journalists and the entire Fourth Estate, which Trump routinely denounces in tweets and at rallies as enemies of the people.

However, missing from most of these full-throated editorials is any real defense of those who are in the trenches doing the hardest job of a free press, which is exposing the worst offenses of government: the war crimes, the craven systemic corruption of the political system, and the purveying of propaganda and disinformation in the furtherance of anti-democratic policies. (A good example would be the employment by most major news organizations of retired generals and colonels as war commentators without noting their roles on corporate boards of arms merchants that profit form war a scandal that not one major news organization will expose.)

Nowhere does one read, in these coordinated impassioned editorial paens to press freedom, a condemnation of the five-year torture and pursuit of journalist and Wikileaks founder Julian Assange, who has been holed up in the London embassy of Ecuador, hiding from a secret sealed indictment that since the days of the virulently anti-free-press Obama administration has been sitting in the Attorney Generals office waiting for his capture.

Assange is trapped in the cramped Ecuadoran embassy by a complicit British government that has threatened to arrest him if he exits the building, claiming he is wanted for jumping bail in a court case that was already long-ago mooted by the expiration of Swedish arrest warrant that itself was based upon trumped-up charges of rape made against Assange by women who say they had not wanted those charges made in the first place. His real crime, and the thing the US wants to extradite him from Britain for, is publishing leaked Pentagon documents and videotapes proving a policy in the Iraq war of massive and deliberate war crimes.

Although news organizations like the New York Times and Washington Post made the most of those Wikileaks documents, publishing their horrific evidence of war crimes, such as the helicopter gun-ship machine-gun slaughter of a group of innocent Iraqis, including two journalists, shown in graph...

Jehovahs Witnesses child abuse survivor speaks "IndyWatch Feed World"

Translated from Dutch NOS TV today:

Abuse by Jehovahs Witnesses: They treat us, the victims, as perpetrators

Thirty years ago, Hadassah Wiersma first filed a complaint against relatives for sexual abuse. Her uncle and aunt, who are members of the Jehovahs Witnesses church, were never prosecuted because there was too little evidence. A few years later she tried again, but again without success.

Now Wiersma is more hopeful, because the Public Prosecutor is going to investigate nine cases of sexual violence within the denomination. Wiersma is one of those nine. I was alone before, we now have a larger group around us, and as a group we hope to achieve the same goal that I wanted to achieve as a small individual thirty years ago, says Wiersma.

Watch the story of Hadassah in the 16 August 2018 video below:

When Wiersma was 8 years old, she regularly had to sleep with her uncle and aunt in one bed. Without clothes on, Ive been through incest for almost ten years.

Bitcoin touched below $6,000 and dozens of smaller digital tokens including Ether retreated as this months sell-off in cryptocurrencies showed few signs of letting up.

The largest digital currency fell as much as 6.2 percent to $5,887, the lowest level since June, before paring some of the drop, according to Bloomberg composite pricing. Ether sank as much as 13 percent, while all but one of the 100 biggest cryptocurrencies tracked by Coinmarketcap.comrecorded declines over the past 24 hours.

The total market capitalization of virtual currencies dropped to $193 billion. Thats down from a peak of about $835 billion in January.

Aspiring German political party aims to offer new direction for left, stop migration, foster friendly relations with Russia "IndyWatch Feed World"

The leader of Germany's Left Party Sahra Wagenknecht has launched a new political movement called 'Stand Up,' which aims to be a voice for workers and to unite a divided left across Europe. While left-wing and not against immigration on principle, the new 'Aufstehen' movement presents a case for limiting the number of migrants coming to Germany looking for work, arguing that "unlimited access" to the German labor market is unsustainable and cannot continue. "There have to be open borders for the persecuted, but we certainly can't say that anyone who wants to may come to Germany, claim social benefits and look for work - it's detached from reality," Wagenknecht said. Sevim Dagdelen, a German MP and supporter of Stand Up, told RT that the movement had close relationships with other left-wing figures like Bernie Sanders in the US, as well as supporters of Jeremy Corbyn in the UK and Jean-Luc Mlenchon in France.

The reasons why confronting Israel is important "IndyWatch Feed World"

The Jewish state is no friend. I am often asked why I have this "thing" about Israel, with friends suggesting that I would be much more respected as a pundit if I were to instead concentrate on national security and political corruption. The problem with that formulation is that the so-called "special relationship" with Israel is itself the result of terrible national security and foreign policy choices that is sustained by pervasive political and media corruption, so any honest attempt to examine the one inevitably leads to the other. Most talking heads in the media avoid that dilemma by choosing to completely ignore the dark side of Israel. Israel - not Russia - is the one foreign country that can interfere with impunity with the political processes in the United States yet it is immune from criticism. It is also the single most significant threat to genuine national security as it and its powerful domestic lobby have been major advocates for the continuation of America's interventionist warfare state. The decision to go to war on false pretenses against Iraq, largely promoted by a cabal of prominent American Jews in the Pentagon and in the media, killed 4,424 Americans as well as hundreds of thousands Iraqis and will wind up costing the American taxpayer $7 trillion dollars when all the bills are paid. That same group of mostly Jewish neocons more-or-less is now agitating to go to war with Iran using a game plan for escalation prepared by Israel which will, if anything, prove even more catastrophic.

BEST OF THE WEB: America's deep-seated Russophobia is pushing US-Russia relations to the brink of ultimate disaster "IndyWatch Feed World"

Starting around WWI, the US has experienced at least three waves of anti-Russia sentiment. What is unique about today's Russophobia is that it's not based on ideological differences, but rather raw political brinkmanship. When viewing particular chapters of American history, it becomes evident that US leaders have a tendency to believe, or feign to believe, that Americans are totally incapable of acting and thinking for themselves. We the ignorant sheeple are simply unqualified to act as independent agents in times of crisis. Instead, the American people are being manipulated like marionettes at the hands of some foreign puppet master, which, as we have been reminded of late on numerous occasions, is Russia. Russophobia in the US has deep roots. In 1919, coming just after WWI and the Russian Revolution, an imagined Bolshevik bogeyman was seen as the force behind a series of domestic upheavals, like the Seattle General Strike when 65,000 workers walked off their jobs for five days, and the Boston Police Strike, which saw officers protesting for better wages and conditions. The rationale to explain those past social seizures sounds strikingly familiar today: any American who dares speak out on some domestic issue must be under the subtle influence of a Kremlin indoctrination campaign.

Supermassive Black Hole That Is 3.5 Million Times Bigger Than the Sun Discovered "IndyWatch Feed World"

As if space didnt already hold plenty of mystery something quite fascinating has been observed. This is currently still seemingly unexplained and quite peculiar.

A black hole like the one at the center of the Milky Way galaxy has been spotted in the elliptical dwarf galaxy. This being over 62 million light-years away. This was noticed by a group of scientists coming from several places around the world. Lead author of the discovery Anton Afanaseiv says this black hole is supermassive.

EurekaAlert wrote as follows in regards to these findings:

In the course of the study the scientists used the data collected with SINFONI, an infrared integral field spectrograph installed at one of the 8-m VLT telescopes in Chile operated by the European Southern Observatory. Having analyzed the observed spectra, the authors derived the dependence between stellar velocity dispersion and radius in Fornax UCD3. Velocity dispersion quantifies the average variation between the individual stellar line-of-sight velocity and the mean velocity of the entire stellar population. In the presence of a massive body such as a black hole the stars are influenced by its gravity and accelerate in various directions. Due to that their average speed does not grow but the dispersion increases considerably. This is the very effect that was observed in this galaxy: the velocity dispersion in its center is so high that it can only be explained by the presence of a massive central black hole.

After that the scientists compared the dependence of velocity and dispersion with dynamic models based on different assumptions of the black hole mass. They found that the model suggesting the mass of the black hole being equal to 3.5 million solar masses agreed with the observations best. They also considered the possibility that no black hole was present there at all, but that hypothesis was excluded with the statistical significance of (99.7%).

The black hole discovered by the authors is the fourth ever to be found in UCDs and corresponds to 4% of the total galaxy mass. In normal galaxies this ratio is considerably lower (about 0.3%). Despite there are few known examples, the existence of massive black holes in UCDs is a strong argument for the tidal origin of such galaxies. According to this hypothesis, an average-sized galaxy passed a bigger and more massive one on a certain stage of its evolution and as a result of influence of tidal forces lost the majority of its stars. The remaining compact nucleus has become what we know as an ultracompact dwarf.

Analysis finds Strzok is neither a victim nor a martyr "IndyWatch Feed World"

In our polarized age of spite-based politics, some partisans have taken the 'enemy of my enemy is my friend' concept to preposterous lengths. One of the more bizarre manifestations of this phenomenon has been the celebration and cultural martyrdom of a number of law enforcement officials who've been fired from their jobs over professional misconduct. Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, who repeatedly and knowingly lied to federal investigators, was showered with cash by The Resistance after his dismissal, because he was a frequent target of President Trump's ire. If Trump hates him, let's send him some cash. So what if he broke the law? It wasn't just grassroots lefties who got in on the action; multiple Democratic members of Congress also offered McCabe federal jobs in order to help him receive his full taxpayer-funded pension. Now that disgraced former FBI agent Peter Strzok has gotten the axe, lefty money is flowing in his direction, too: Roughly $300,000 in less than 24 hours, in fact.

7 Signs That A Deceased Loved One is Trying to Contact You and Send You A Message "IndyWatch Feed World"

When a loved one passes, we often find ourselves thinking about and missing them dearly, wishing that we could make contact with them just one more time. This may not be as far out of the realm of possibility as you have been led to believe, in fact, there is a chance your loved one has already been attempting to contact you.

It is said that the spirits of our loved ones watch over us from beyond, guiding us and caring for us in the best way that they see possible. While this is usually a very hands off observation, there may be times that your loved one feeds the need to deliver an important message. They may be trying to warn you about a big decision, guide you down a certain path or simply let you know that they are okay.

Whatever the reason, contacting you at this stage is far more difficult than simply picking up the phone and giving you a shout. Despite the challenge, they may still be doing their best to reach you from the other side. By recognizing the most common signs of communication, and maintaining an open heart and mind, you can encourage these communication attempts, increasing their chances of success.

Here are 7 signs that a deceased loved one is trying to contact you and send you a message:

#1 The family dog begins to act odd.

It is said that dogs, being highly sensitive creatures, are able to pick up on the presence of a spirit in a way that we are not. You may notice that your dog begins to bark or growl at nothing or starts to show interest in a corner of the room despite the fact that you see nothing there. While you may not be able to see or hear this presence, that doesnt mean that Fido is going crazy for no reason. Dogs will, at times, act erratically for no reason, but it may also be a sign that a spirit is present.

#2 Your electronics begin to act up or malfunction.

When a spirit attempts to make contact with someone in this life, it requires a great deal of energy. When this energy all comes together, it can have an impact on our electrical devices. You may notice that radios or televisions suddenly turn to static for no reason, electronics turn on or off, lights flicker, or your devices begin to make strange noises. This indicates that someone is nearby at the time. Some spirits may even use these devices to attempt to make contact.

#3 You may start to notice familiar signs or symbols.

Conservatives know Corbyn is on threshold of power in UK "IndyWatch Feed World"

The ruling conservatives in the United Kingdom have become clearly aware that Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn has a high chance of leading the next government in the country, a political analyst says.

It is now evidently clear to Conservative Party members and many conservative politicians that Jeremy Corbyn is on the threshold of power, said Marcus Papadopoulos, a British publisher and editor at the Politics First website.

Senior Conservative Party members who used to ridicule the possibility that Corbyn could become the next British prime minster have now seen him showing his real leadership skills, Papadopoulos told Press TV on Thursday.

Jeremy Corbyn does have what it takes to become the next prime minister of the United Kingdom, he added.

Mr Corbyn has prevailed despite ferocious attacks on him from the British mainstream media, from the Conservative Party and even from people within his own party on the right of the Labour.

Papadopoulos said a main reason for Corbyns increasing popularity in Britain is his far-reaching promise for renationalizing the train and utility services.

He said those policies have proved to be very popular with ordinary Britons who cannot afford the extortionate prices which are charged for services like trains, water, electricity and gas.

The expert said part of Corbyns popularity is also due to his firm foreign policy stances as many have become convinced that Britain under his leadership would be a pacifist and independent country.

He has made it very clear that Britain under his premiership will not be invading other countries, will not be bombing other countries and will not be blindly following the United States of America around the world.

Many Britons are sick and tired of how many military campaigns Britain has been involved in over the last 25 years  people in Britain are dissatisfied with how Britain follows America whenever America asks...

Rand Paul: If US wants Assange to testify, give him immunity "IndyWatch Feed World"

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, who has spent more than 2,200 days in the Ecuadorian embassy in London, should be granted immunity from prosecution if he agrees to testify in the US, Senator Rand Paul has said. "I think that he should be given immunity from prosecution in exchange for coming to the United States and testifying," Paul said in an interview to the Gateway Pundit website. Paul believes that Assange "has information that is probably pertinent to the hacking of the Democratic emails that would be nice to hear." But he doesn't think Assange is likely to come and share it unless given "some type of immunity from prosecution." Earlier this month the US Senate Intelligence Committee, investigating alleged Russian interference in the 2016 election, requested that the WikiLeaks editor testify. In a letter delivered to Assange, committee chairman Richard Burr (R-North Carolina) requested that Assange make himself available for a closed interview "at a mutually agreeable time and location."

Turkey's emerging market timebomb "IndyWatch Feed World"

As the Turkish lira continues to depreciate against the dollar, fears of a classic emerging-market crisis have come to the fore. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoan's populist economic policies have finally caught up to him, and sooner or later, he will have to make nice with his country's traditional Western allies. Turkey's falling currency and deteriorating financial conditions lend credence, at least for some people, to the notion that "a crisis is a terrible thing to waste." I suspect that many Western policymakers, in particular, are not entirely unhappy about Turkey's plight. To veteran economic observers, Turkey's troubles are almost a textbook case of an emerging-market flop. It is August, after all, and back in the 1990s, one could barely go a single year without some kind of financial crisis striking in the dog days of summer. But more to the point, Turkey has a large, persistent current-account deficit, and a belligerent leader who does not realize - or refuses to acknowledge - that his populist economic policies are unsustainable. Moreover, Turkey has become increasingly dependent on overseas investors (and probably some wealthy domestic investors, too).

Turkey follows Russia's lead, dumps US Treasury securities "IndyWatch Feed World"

Turkey's holding of US sovereign bonds saw a nearly 12-percent decline from May to June as Ankara seeks to diversify away from the US dollar amid an escalating diplomatic conflict with Washington. In June, Turkey's share of US Treasury securities dropped to $28.8 billion from $32.6 billion in the previous month, according to financial and political news aggregator Zero Hedge. Since the end of last year, the country has reportedly decreased its holdings of T-bills, bonds and notes by 52 percent. Earlier this year, a US Treasury report revealed that the Central Bank of Russia had sharply slashed the country's holdings of US sovereign debt. The regulator linked the measure to increased concerns over various risks, including financial, economic and geopolitical. In May, Russia's share hit an 11-year low and totaled just $14.9 billion. However, the latest data shows that Moscow slowed down its massive sell-off of US Treasury bonds with the figure remaining unchanged in June.

Liberty Radio, Jones' flagship radio station, shut down by the FCC "IndyWatch Feed World"

The US communications regulator has shut down Alex Jones' flagship radio station and slapped it with a $15,000 fine. The news comes after the controversial commentator was banned from a range of social media outlets. A lawsuit filed in the US District Court in Austin this week accuses Liberty Radio of operating without federal consent since at least 2013, the Austin American-Statesman reports. The Austin-based station has been solely streaming online since December, when it was knocked off the air. The newspaper reported that religious programming has replaced Liberty Radio on the 90.1 FM frequency. Agents from the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) traced the station's signal to a 50-foot tower at an apartment complex linked to the to defendants in the lawsuit, Walter Olenick and M. Rae Nadler-Olenick. The court documents indicate that the station was being operated out of some sort of maintenance or utility room at the complex.

Unbelievable! Palestinian mail and packages, blocked by Israel for 8 years, will finally be delivered "IndyWatch Feed World"

Palestinian postal service employees are working overtime to sort through some 10 tons of letters and packages blocked by Israel for up to eight years, Palestinian officials said Tuesday. The parcels, dating from between 2010 and this year, had been prevented by Israel from entering the West Bank via Jordan but were released in a one-time deal, the officials said. The goods range from simple letters to medicine and even wheelchairs for the disabled, AFP journalists found at the sorting center in the occupied West Bank city of Jericho. Palestinian Telecommunications Minister Allam Mousa accused Israel in a statement of having blocked the delivery and of delaying the implementation of an agreement on postal services. Israeli authorities confirmed the packages had been transferred and said an agreement was in the works, but did not comment in detail.

'Energy in him was in full swing' says Putin's teacher regarding her famous pupil "IndyWatch Feed World"

Russian President Vladimir Putin used to be an incredibly energetic child, who in time came to study diligently, his school teacher and long-time family friend, Vera Gurevich, has revealed in an interview with Russian media. Gurevich taught the future Russian leader German and was his class teacher for 3 years, when he studied in a Leningrad (now St. Petersburg) secondary school. She also set up a German language club that Putin signed up for at school. In a new interview to Ria Novosti, the 85-year-old retired teacher said that Putin always tried to meet her expectations, but his energy used to spill over sometimes. Despite this he graduated with good marks and fulfilled his dream to be accepted into university. But back in elementary school he was a very playful kid, Gurevich said.

The Mistake You Make in Every Political Argument "IndyWatch Feed World"

Weve all been sufficiently frustrated by the gap between the values someone espouses and the policies they support that weve gotten into political arguments to help them see their error. Perhaps, if were more honest about our own motivation, we just reacted to get rid of that visceral dissonant feeling that something that wrong just cant be allowed to stand.

And, no doubt, whenever you do that, you lay out a clear, fact-based, logically consistent case for the correct view.

Youve probably done it many timesand, if youre like most people, youve changed next-to-no minds at all.

In fact, you may have often come away even more convinced of your opponents wrong-headedness than when you started, and likely gave your opponent the exact same view of you.

But you keep doing iteven though it does very little good indeed.

Given all the practice everyone is getting, why are millions of decent arguments made by clearly thinking individuals almost all utterly useless when it comes to enlightening otherslet alone changing their minds?

This article will give you the answer. Understanding it may change your life.

8 Signs You Are Living With A Poltergeist "IndyWatch Feed World"

Youve probably heard the word poltergeist before or saw the thrilling movie from back in the 80s but do you really know what a poltergeist is? Could you be face to face with one yourself?

Poltergeists, for those who do not know or are not sure are basically supernatural beings or ghosts that cause physical disturbances. They throw things and are in some cases can be quite violent and come in more than one form. Some poltergeists are very active and others are only slightly active.

The word poltergeist actually means noisy ghost when translated from German. There are lots of different theories in regards to poltergeists and the definition may vary depending on who youre speaking with. With that being said, it is not something that many want to experience.

PrairieGhosts wrote as follows in regards to breaking down poltergeists on their website:

Poltergeist cases are the work of actual, intelligent spirits. while poltergeist-like cases are the work of human agents. What makes this so hard to define is the fact that some cases are a combination of the two. where haunted locations carry such a charge of energy that they make it possible for ghosts to exist there and for the unconscious energy of the human agent to manifest.

In both kinds of cases, similar phenomena takes places, including: knocking and tapping sounds; noises with no visible cause; disturbance of stationary objects like household items and furniture; doors slamming; lights turning on and off; fires breaking out; rock and dirt throwing; physical and sexual assaults and much more. In some cases, these events can be tangible evidence of ghosts, but in other cases, while the activity is paranormal, it has nothing to do with the spirits.

Leaving out the actual cases involving negative and violent spirits, the current and widely accepted theory behind poltergeist phenomena is that the activity is usually caused by a person in the household.

This person is usually an adolescent girl, and normally one who is troubled emotionally. It is believed that this person may be unconsciously manipulating the items in the house by psychokinesis (PK), the power to move things by energy generated in the brain. This kinetic energy remains unexplained, but even mainstream scientists are starting to admit that it does seem to exist. It is unknown why this energy seems to appear in females around the age of puberty, but it has been documented to occur. It seems that when the activity begins to manifest, the girl is usually in the midst of some emotional or sexual turmoil. It is also possible for young boys, and even adults, to be able to manifest this unknowing ability. The vast majority of peop...

USA Turkey rift widens "IndyWatch Feed World"

The Turkish government on Wednesday announced new tariffs on U.S. imports, ratcheting up its trade war with the U.S. the same day a local court denied an American pastors appeal to be released from house arrest.

Both actions exacerbated ongoing tensions between the NATO allies, which are in turn contributing to Turkeys currency crisis.

Ankara has imposed additional tariffs on U.S. products, including rice, cars, alcohol, coal, and cosmetics, according to the decision announced in Turkeys official journal that publishes legislative and executive actions. Tariffs on American cars doubled to 120 percent while tariffs on alcoholic drinks increased to 140 percent.

Turkeys Vice President Fuat Oktay reportedly said on Twitter Wednesday that the government increased the tariffs in retaliation for the deliberate economic attacks by the United States.

Meanwhile, a local court rejected an appeal by Pastor Andrew Brunson, a U.S. citizen who has lived and worked in Turkey for nearly two decades, to be released from house arrest while he is awaiting a trial for espionage and terrorism-related charges.

President Erdogan jailed Brunson nearly two years ago following a military coup attempt, arguing Brunson has ties to the coup plotters. U.S. officials counter that Brunson is a scapegoat and the charges are baseless.

President Donald Trump personally took part in negotiations aimed at reaching a deal to release Brunson. However, those talks have broken down over the last month.

Earlier this week, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said Trump is deeply frustrated by Turkeys refusal to release Brunson, as well other U.S. citizens.

A White House official warned on Tuesday of additional economic sanctions or other pressures if Turkey continues to refuse to release Brunson. That message came a day after White House national security adviser John Bolton met with Turkish ambassador Serdar Kilic about Brunsons case.

After that meeting, a White House official expressed concern that nothing has progressed so far in the Brunson case and said the Trump administration is going to stay extremely firm on this.

The Trump administration in early August imposed financial sanctions against two Turkish ministers and doubled steel and aluminum tariffs in attempt to pressure Turkey to release Brunson.

Nick Redfern: From an Ouija Board to Sasquatch "IndyWatch Feed World"

Laura Carter was thirty-six, lived in New York, and was employed by the Post Office when I interviewed her in 2007. She related to me the details of a distinctly odd and unsettling series of occurrences that took place back in mid-1985. On one particularly warm summer's night, Laura said, three of her friends had come over to visit. Her parents were out of town, and so the girls planned to have an evening hanging out, playing music, drinking, and and generally having a fun time. At some point during the night, the discussion turned to horror-movies, ghosts, spooks and specters, and the four girls decided to experiment with an old Ouija Board. As Laura admitted to me, none of them were seriously frightened by the board or the possible implications of what might transpire - in fact, they had no real idea at all how to even use the board, apart from "what we had seen in horror movies," added Laura. But, like teenagers everywhere, they found the idea of "playing with the Ouija Board while my mom and dad were out" to be great fun and immensely exciting. However, what initially started out as nothing more than a bit of late-night joking around quickly changed into something far darker and much more disturbing.

"Turkey: A Glimpse of Americas Future"
by Bill Bonner

POITOU, FRANCE "Coming into focus is a fuller picture of the worldwide financial crisis. This week, we began looking at Turkey, but only because Donald Trump sent an extraordinary tweet last Friday. In it, the president broke with tradition and common sense in a remarkable way. He used a crash in the Turkish lira to justify a new attack in the trade war. Instead of soothing words that might have calmed the crisis situation, his tweet made it worse. And instead of coming to the aid of an ally in difficulty, he piled on.

We had never previously spent even two minutes thinking about Turkey or its finances. But then, after the president roused our curiosity, we saw what we think was a glimpse of the future. In it, we see huge defaults stock crashes chest-pounding threats and counterthreats populism betrayal trade wars and currency wars as the world reckons with $115 trillion in excess debt.

Another Actor Calls Out Satanic Hollywood Pedophiles See Corey, I Didnt Need $10 Million "IndyWatch Feed World"

By Arjun Walia

The Facts: Isaac Kappy, an actor and writer known for his work on Terminator Salvation, Thor, Beerfest, Fanboys, etc, has come out exposing the pedophilia that is rampant in Hollywood.

Reflect On: What does this say about the satanic influence, not just in Hollywood but in our world? Our politicians and leaders? Satanism isnt about religion and the devil, this is about something much more. What are we learning from all of this?

Its truly shocking just how many revelations have come to light with regards to the physical and sexual abuse of children within the realm of the global elite. The big four areas where this activity seems to be most prevalent nowadays is within politics, the Vatican, the military industrial complex and inside of Hollywood. Within each section, there are numerous examples to pull from.

In politics, especially within the last couple of years, information is hitting the mainstream like it never has before, one example would be the fact that an NBC news report implicated Hillary Clinton in covering up a massive pedophile ring in the heart of the State Department, another would be multiple ex-high ranking political officials claiming that both the Clintons engage in sex with minors, pointing towards their close relationship with Jeffrey Epstein (who also has Royal Family connections).

Epstein is now a registered sex offender. When it comes to the Vatican, there are always disturbing acts going on. Right now, the Popes right-hand man, George Pell, is in court for sexual assault, and a massive pedophile ring has been exposed where hundreds of boys...

Study: Infamous banned DDT Chemical Strongly Linked To Autism "IndyWatch Feed World"

The chemical compound DDT or Dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane, which is commonly used in insecticides has been strongly linked to autism spectrum disorder. An international group of epidemiologists and psychiatrists studying children who were exposed to the chemical in utero found the link.

Because it is banned, exposure to DDT is minimized, but it is still detectable in almost all people. DDT is still persisting in the environment and is detectable in almost everyone, lead author Dr. Alan Brown told IFLScience. I would not say women should be concerned but it is important to be informed that at least this one chemical exposure is related to increased risk [of autism].

The scientists findings, now published in the American Journal of Psychiatry, present the first evidence of a link between the banned chlorine-based chemical and the neurological condition that was drawn from cases where the mother was confirmed to have DDT in her body. Similar past research into DDTs link to autism has relied on the estimated exposures calculated by each womans residential proximity to DDT-polluted areas.

DDT was first synthesized by chemists in 1874, but it wasnt widely used until its insecticidal properties were discovered in 1939. For the next several decades, the compound was freely and generously sprayed on food crops worldwide and directly into public spaces and peoples homes. IFL Science

Based on mounting evidence that the pesticide was harmful to both animals and humans, DDT was banned in the US in 1972 and in the European Union in 1986. In the time since the chemical compound was banned, additional studies have confirmed that DDT accumulates and lingers in ecosystems and that when ingested or inhaled.  This can eventually lead to reproductive issues and cancer.

Hoping to substantiate past work, Dr. Browns group drew data from a large, nationwide Finnish study that too...

SocialismWhat Is It Good For? "IndyWatch Feed World"

CNBC: Democrats view socialism more positively than capitalism, according to a new Gallup poll

To give you an idea of the deception inherent in socialism, here is a quote from none other than Andrew Carnegie, once one of the richest men in America:

I believe Socialism is the grandest theory ever presented, and I am sure it will someday rule the world. Then we will have attained the MillenniumThen men will be content to work for the general welfare and share their riches with their neighbors. (The New York Times, 1 January 1885, A Millionaire Socialist)

Carnegie, of course, like several of his ultra-rich compatriots, devised a method to give away his riches while keeping them: the non-profit foundation.

The last thing on Carnegies bloated mind was becoming equal with the great unwashed.

He was a liar of the first order. He recognized that, when you win the game of free enterprise, your most corrupt bet is to turn around and find every possible way to block others from winning. Then, you stand at the top of the heap, unchallenged.

That is exactly what he had in mind. Thats what socialism actually meant to him.

Lets see socialism for what it is. Not in the abstract, but in reality.

Socialism is:

The taking of money (taxes) from some people who work for it and giving it to others who dont work for it. On a grand scale.

The vast expansion of freebies doled out by central government. In order to create and sustain dependence.

The government protection of favored persons and corporations, permitting them and aiding them to expand their fortunes without limit, regardless of what crimes they commit in the process. (Monsanto would be a fine example.)

The squeezing out of those who would compete with the favored persons and corporations.

The dictatorship by and for the very wealthy, pretending to be the servant of the masses.

The lie that the dictatorship is being run by the masses.

The gradual lowering of the standard of living for the overwhelming number of people.

The propaganda claiming socialism is the path to a better world for all.

In other words, socialism is a protection racket and a long con and a heartless system of elite control, posing as the greatest good.

It is just another form of top-down tyrannyas old as the hills.

Writing your way to wellbeing "IndyWatch Feed World"

Ask almost anyone you know how they are, and the response is likely to be: "busy". Our inboxes are bursting with emails. Appointments and social events keep stacking up. Family woes, work worries and money matters make our minds work overtime. Not to mention commuting, pollution and the "million and one things" to remember.Add to this the uncertain political times we live in and, well, it's not surprising that many people feel overwhelmed. Life is fast-paced. And it can be difficult to slow down - especially if being busy is effectively masking anxiety, grief and hard-to-handle emotions. The end result of all of this seems to be widespread depression. According to The World Health Organization, depression is the leading cause of disability worldwide. They estimate that more than 300 million people are living with depression. There is no fast-fix for depression, nor for other forms of mental illness. However, creativity is a remedy - a tonic that can help bring about real change. And many hospitals have arts programs to help patients heal.

The 3 Trigger Terms Being Used to Stop Critical Thinking "IndyWatch Feed World"

By Sigmund Fraud

Its a strange world of newspeak we live in. What was once a society devoted to logic and progress is now being herded in echo chambers of thought control and anti-critical thinking. Without the ability to examine an issue impartially and completely there is little hope of maintaining liberty and freedom, as history repeatedly demonstrated.

Today, we find that thinking is a diminishing art, and in its place, sound bites and stop-thought terms are used to put the brakes on the mind. These terms are widely used as signals to prevent minds from looking too deeply at a topic or issue.

Thinking critically means making reasoned judgments that are logical and well thought out. It is a way of thinking in which one doesnt simply accept all arguments and conclusions to which one is exposed without questioning the arguments and conclusions. It requires curiosity, skepticism and humility. People who use critical thinking are the ones who say things such as, How do you know that? Is this conclusion based on evidence or gut feelings? and Are there alternative possibilities when given new pieces of information?  [Source]

The three terms most widely used today to this avail are detailed below.

1.) Conspiracy Theorist This term is so overused that it really is devoid of any practical meaning. If you were to examine it at face value, though, it describes a person who is looking to understand injustices in our world and is willing to look at uncomfortable facts in search of negative influence of which there is plenty in our world today.

However, conspiracy theorist has literally become a derogatory term that is attributed to anyone who refuses to accept mainstream narratives at face value. It doesnt matter that there is overwhelming evidence to indicate that mainstream media does not value objectivity or report on important issues thoroughly or truthfully.

Now we find this term applied as a prefix to well-known journalists and media personalities, almost as we use the term Doctor. Its an adjective that precedes them everywhere, so that before you even know what issue is being discussed, you know that the issue is coming from someone considered to be fringe and unacceptable.

Yes, it is almost time for the August full moon in Pisces. This full moon will mark the near end of the month and beginning of a wondrous September.

The full moon in Pisces will occur on the 26th of this month and will really be bringing us to a new place in our own minds. The full moon will be aligned with two very powerful fixed stars making the energies to come all the more powerful. Pisces is a very interesting energy in itself and will be pushing us all to be more imaginative, creative, and providing us with a deep sense of intuition.

This full moon is going to be the best time for us to really work towards making changes in our lives. It will allow us to become more aware of internal conflicts and show us how to release the pressures within our beings. While it will be a seemingly emotional moon, it will be one that clears out any negative feelings you may have been dealing with.

Earth's oldest rocks likely to have been created by meteorite bombardment "IndyWatch Feed World"

Scientists have found that 4.02 billion year old silica-rich felsic rocks from the Acasta River, Canada-the oldest rock formation known on Earth-probably formed at high temperatures and at a surprisingly shallow depth of the planet's nascent crust. The high temperatures needed to melt the shallow crust were likely caused by a meteorite bombardment around half a billion years after the planet formed. This melted the iron-rich crust and formed the granites we see today. These results are presented for the first time at the Goldschmidt conference in Boston tomorrow (14 August), following publication in the peer-reviewed journal Nature Geoscience. The felsic rocks (rocks rich in silica/quartz) found at the Acasta River in Canada, are the Earth's oldest rocks, although there are older mineral crystals. Scientists have long known that the Acasta rocks are different to the majority of felsic rocks we see today, such as the granites widely used as a building or decorative material. Now a group of scientists from Australia and China have modelled the formation of the oldest Acasta felsic rocks and found that they could only have been formed at low pressures and very high temperatures.

Four interesting events in the tropics over the past week "IndyWatch Feed World"

Several interesting things caught our eye in the tropics in the past week, including Hurricane Hector's length of time as major hurricane in the northeastern Pacific Ocean, Tropical Storm Debby's formation in the Atlantic Ocean, an active eastern half of the Pacific Ocean and Typhoon Shanshan's scrape with Japan. Below, we'll go into greater detail about each of these notables. Hurricane Hector Sets Record in Northeastern Pacific Ocean Hurricane Hector passed well south of the Big Island of Hawaii on Wednesday as a major hurricane, one classified as Category 3 or higher on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale. Hector generated high surf and breezy conditions on the Big Island, with no more than a few outer rain showers scraping portions of that island. As of Saturday morning, Hector was still maintaining Category 3 intensity about 1,000 miles west of Hawaii. That means it had been a major hurricane for at least 7.5 consecutive days, the longest duration any hurricane in the northeastern Pacific Basin has held that intensity, according to Colorado State University tropical scientist Dr. Phil Klotzbach.

American Media Are Corrupt Beyond All Measure, They Serve the Military-Industrial Complex "IndyWatch Feed World"

Paul Craig Roberts is an economist who served as assistant Treasury secretary in the Reagan administration, was associate editor at the Wall Street Journal, and is a former professor at Georgetown University. (Full bio).

Putin confronts the American dystopia

We have to hand it to Putin. He is the best that there is. Note the ease with which he mopped up the floor with that idiot Chris Wallace.

By Paul Craig Roberts

What is wrong with the US media that it cannot produce a second competent journalist as company for Tucker Carlson? Why are Americas remaining good journalists, such as Chris Hedges, now in the alternate media?

All I can say, and Putin probably already knows it, is that there is more going on than presstitutes holding the relationship between Russia and the US hostage to an internal political struggle between the Democratic Party and President Trump. It is not just that the corrupt US media is serving as propagandists for the Democratic Party against President Trump.

Paul Craig Roberts

The presstitutes are serving the interest of the military/security complex, which has ownership interests in the highly concentrated US media, to keep Russia positioned as the enemy that justifies the huge $1,000 billion budget of the military/security complex. Without the Russian enemy, what is the justification for such a waste of money when so many real needs go underfunded and unfunded?

In other words, the American media are not only stupid, they are corrupt beyond all measure.

Kevin Barrett: President Gets 9/11 Memo, But Will He Respond to It? "IndyWatch Feed World"

President Gets 9/11 Memo, But Will He Respond to It?

American Free Press

A group of 27 scholars have united in writing Memoranda to the President to demand Trump expose the truth of 9/11 this year. Will he respond? This compilation of writings is free online at http://tinyurl.com/911-POTUS.

God Bless America and God Bless Donald Trump. So begins a collection of memos to President Donald Trump by 27 experts on the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.

The presidential briefing on 9/11 was organized by Robert David Steele, a former CIA Clandestine Services Officer and founder of the Open Source Intelligence movement. Contributors include David Ray Griffin, widely considered the unofficial dean of 9/11 studies, Peter Dale Scott, the University of California-Berkeley professor emeritus who popularized the term deep state, Richard Gage of Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth, and two dozen others including yours truly.

Steele knows people close to Trump and believes the president will get the memo. In a recent radio interview, Steele said:

Ive written a letter of transmittal to the president that focuses on whats in the book and what he can do next. Its about six pages long. I would say the chances of [President Trump] reading that memo are 80% or better. The chances of his getting a one-page summary are 95%. The chances of his actually getting the binder are probably down around 60%. The chances of his reading all the memos are in the 40% range. The bottom line is that Donald Trump knows this book has been published. He knows this book exists. He knows this book is calling him out on fulfilling his promise to get to the bottom of 9/11. And so Ive presented him with something he cannot ignore as he goes toward his planned speech on the 11th of September this year.

List of possible farm expropriation targets published - South African farmers panic "IndyWatch Feed World"

A list of white farmers whose lands are to be seized without compensation in South Africa has been published by the local minority rights group AfriForum. The government denies the accuracy of the list. The group has uploaded the list of the next land-expropriation victims on its website. AfriForum said it obtained the list through the Department of Rural Development and Land Reform ministry, which has denied its veracity. AfriForum claims the list of lands for expropriation includes 195 farms, and has offered to get in contact with affected parties to prepare for a joint legal strategy.

Investigation Reveals Google May Still Be Tracking You, Even If Location Tracking Is Off "IndyWatch Feed World"

If you spend any time online then you have seen the many articles circulating, warning you about the information collected by Google each time you log on your computer. These articles walked you through the process of turning off location tracking, however, a new investigation reveals that doing so may not be enough to protect your privacy.

There have been many warnings circulating the internet about the information that is collected on a daily basis on our cell phones. A problem experienced by everyone, regardless of whether they are Team Android or Team Apple, the location services feature on your phone may be revealing a startling amount of information.

Are you aware of what Google actually knows about your life? The amount of personal information that it collects might alarm you. Each time that you turn on Google Maps, your phone transmits data about where you are in order to determine your directions. However, this data is collected under your Location History, providing anyone who accesses it a full detailed list of everywhere youve been. Furthermore, it has established and tracked two key locations your home and work. Therefore, anyone accessing your phone data has these two addresses at their fingertips.

If that isnt alarming enough, Google tracks a number of other information from your Google searches, YouTube searches, the websites that you visit, and more. This data, combined with your age and gender, will help to determine which ads you are shown customizing your advertisements to what Google perceives as your interests.

The recent scandals with Facebook have brought to light the importance of recognizing who is tracking our data, and what information they are collecting. In the face of this concern, Google stresses their privacy policy is in place to protect users, but not all experts are convinced. David Yoffie, a professor at the Harvard Business School explained, Google is walking a very fine line. Search, Android gives Google amazing insight into individual behavior. Googles stated privacy policies seem adequate, but the question that I cannot answer is whether Googles stated policy and actual behavior are one and the same. Facebook had a stated policy for the last three years which most of us found acceptable, until Cambridge Analytica came to light.

Yoffie isnt alone with his concern. Interested in whether Googles statement and actions are in line with one another, the Associated Press (AP)...

Roundup ingredient found in Cheerios, Quaker Oats, and other cereals "IndyWatch Feed World"

Days after a California jury awarded a school groundskeeper more than $289 million in damages after he claimed Monsantos best-selling weedkiller Roundup gave him cancer, the controversial ingredient glyphosate has been detected in popular kids breakfast cereals, including Cheerios, Lucky Charms and Quaker Old Fashioned Oats, according to an activist group.

Lab tests conducted by the left-leaning Environmental Working Group (EWG), a nonprofit advocacy group that specializes in toxic chemicals and corporate accountability, indicated almost three-fourths of the 45 food products tested detected high levels of glyphosate, which has been identified as a probable carcinogen by the World Health Organization in 2015.

But makers of the foods EWG tested said they and their suppliers operate within U.S. government safety guidelines and dismissed the groups findings as irrelevant.

However, many EWG scientists consider levels higher than 160 parts per billion of glyphosate above the safety threshold for children.

Whats more, about one-third of the 16 samples made with organically grown oats also had glyphosate, but at levels below EWGs benchmark.

Popular children items, including General Mills Cheerios Toasted Whole Grain Oat Cereal, Lucky Charms, Kelloggs Cracklin Oat Bran and Quakers Old Fashioned Oats, all had levels exceeding EWGs safety guidelines.

But while those products exceeded the EWGs threshold, they still fall within the EPAs regulations, many food brands said.

In a statement to FOX Business regarding the report, a General Mills spokesperson says, Our products are safe and without questions they meet regulatory safety levels.

The EPA has researched this issue and has set rules that we follow as do farmers who grow crops including wheat and oats.  We continue to work closely with farmers, our suppliers and conservation organizations to minimize the use of pesticides on the crops and ingredients we use in our foods, General Mills added.

Quaker also released a statement following the report, saying it does not add glyphosate during any part of the milling process, and glyphosate is commonly used by farmers across the industry who apply it pre-harvest. Kelloggs issued a similar statement, saying its food is safe and they follow the EPAs strict standards for safely levels of these agricultural residues and the ingredients we purchase from suppliers for our foods fall under these limits.

The report come days after a jury at the Superior Court of California awarded $289 million in damages to Dewayne Lee Johnson, a San Francisco school groundskeep...

New Posters about Democracy in English and Swedish "IndyWatch Feed World"

Working with comrades in Sweden, we have prepared Swedish versions of our classic poster series, What Does Democracy Mean?. Weve also added a new poster in English, Democracy Means Bureaucracy. With elections coming up in Sweden on September 9 and in the United States in November, we hope these posters can help to undermine the popular assumption that democracy is the solution for all of the problems it causes, and propose an alternative approach based in horizontality, decentralization, and direct action. For more on the anarchist critique of democracy, consult our book, From Democracy to Freedom.

Broadly speaking, democracy and capitalism were stabilized throughout the 20th century via the progressive inclusion of populations that had previously been excluded from the privileges of voting and property ownership. This began with womens suffrage and the Fordist compromise, continued through desegregation and the end of the European colonial empires, and concluded with the collapse of the Soviet bloc. Since then, almost the entire world has been integrated into neoliberalism, an economic system premised on the ceaseless concentration of capital in fewer and fewer hands at the top, and a race to the bottom for wage-earners. Now that it is a worldwide system, there are fewer opportunities to draw in resources with which to continue expanding the pyramid scheme.

Between ecological catastrophe and growing inequality, the average participants in globalized capitalism no longer have cause to expect an ever-improving quality of life. State governments are dismantling the programs that once served to offset the vicissitudes of the market, feeding every resource into the fire in order to keep their economies competitive as the crisis accelerates. Contemporary democratic governments preside over an increasingly invasive security apparatus intended to preserve order at any price.

In 2010-2014, a wave of movements around the world proposed to solve these problems with a more participatory democratic model. Yet those movements ended in new dictatorships in Egypt and elsewhere in the global South, while they were reabsorbed into representational politics in Europe and the United Statesmost notably in the cases of Syriza and...

Stanford Study Says You Cant Find Your Passion, You Must Develop Passion "IndyWatch Feed World"

By Fattima Mahdi

According to Implicit Theories of Interest: Find Your Passion or Developing It? a paper published in Psychological Science by three Stanford University researchers, popular mantras like follow your passion create the belief that pursuing a passion is easy. However, interests do not arrive fully formed, ready for you to coast the rest of the way. Instead, they require constant work, you must actively take the steps necessary to develop the skills and attributes that will allow you to pursue your goals. In essence, if you want to develop passion it will be far from easy. It will takes days, weeks, months and even years of hard work to actualise your dreams.

Paul OKeefe, Carol Dweck and Gregory Walton conducted a series of laboratory studies that examined the belief systems that lead people to succeed or fail. The participants were either techie passionate about science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) or fuzzy passionate about humanities and arts. 470 participants were observed as they read articles and watched videos on topics that interested them.

Murder for a parking spot, legal in Florida, USA? "IndyWatch Feed World"

Stand your ground shooter charged with manslaughter

Michael Drejka, 48, was arrested in the fatal July shooting of Markeis McGlockton, an incident that was caught on video.

By Andrew Gillum in the USA today:

My name is Andrew Gillum, and Im the Mayor of Tallahassee, and a candidate for governor in Florida.

And the so-called stand your ground laws in my state have let vigilantes become the judge, jury and executioner.

After an argument over a parking space, Markeis McGlockton was shot and killed by a white man. His family had to wait nearly a month before his killer was charged all because of the stand your ground law.

Lets be clear: stand your ground has no place in a civilized society.

This is a license to kill, plain and simple will you add your name to our petition calling for the repeal of stand your ground laws in America?

Stand your ground laws allow anyone who feels afraid to murder under the label of self-defense. But we know how that works in practice studies show that it is disproportionately used against people of color.

Why Does Israel Keep Destroying Cultural Heritage Sites in Gaza? "IndyWatch Feed World"

By Celine Hagbard

On Thursday August 9th, the Israeli airforce dropped ten missiles on a building in Gaza City, turning the five-story building into rubble. Was this a Hamas training center, or somehow associated with the Palestinian armed resistance? No. Like the building targeted by Israeli forces two weeks earlier, when two teen boys were killed taking a selfie, this was a cultural center aimed at preserving the history and culture of the Palestinian people of Gaza.

The Said Al-Mashal Foundation for Arts and Culture was a place where cultural heritage was preserved and maintained. The Palestinian traditional dance known as dabke was taught and practiced there, poets would gather to share their latest works, and musicians would come together for jam sessions and performances.

Two weeks earlier, the Israeli airforce dropped another bomb on the Arts and Crafts Museum in Gaza City.

Why is Israel so focused on destroying Palestinian cultural artifacts, museums, arts and crafts? Is it because resistance fighters are hidden inside these centers? That is a laughable claim that is easily disproved by looking at the evidence no fighters, weapons or rockets in the rubble that remains of what had been beautiful and well-loved cultural centers.

Nor is it true that these centers were somehow collateral damage, and the bombs were targeting some other, nearby place. No, Israeli forces directly targeted these centers and in fact, after the fact, declared the strikes a success and claimed that they hit their targets directly.

No, the reality is that the centers that preserve the Palestinian peoples identity, culture and history are somehow seen as a threat to Israel, and Israeli authorities have implemented a policy that such centers must be destroyed.

Video showing the destruction of the Said al-Mashal Center:

The Middle East Eye interviewed some of the artists involved with the center.

Edrees Taleb, 27, one of the centres well-known theatre directors, was quoted in the paper as saying,

You know what it means to have been working in a place for more than eight years, so you know every tile like the back of your hand and suddenly, in the blink of an eye, everything is gone? For the past couple of months, we have been preparing for a new play entitled Anesthesia Syringe, to be played during the Eid al-Adha break, and we had installed the decoration a few hours before the building was targeted.

Earth undergoing unexplained major cooling event - scientists ignore it "IndyWatch Feed World"

A most remarkable climate phenomenon is taking place under our very noses without anybody paying attention to it. As nearly everybody knows, the planet is warming. Since its short-term rate of temperature change hasn't changed much, the warming is essentially accomplished because the planet spends less time cooling than warming. Therefore, periods of cooling have become shorter and result in less cooling. In the figure below, we can see the top 10 biggest periods of cooling in terms of temperature decrease since 1950.

The Strangeness of the California Fires "IndyWatch Feed World"

By Joseph P. Farrell

Today I want to talk about those fires in California

Every now and then, I do come across a video that intrigues me(this time from Mr. D.S.M.), and so I went looking for more, and found a couple that I want to share, and comment on. But first I want to remind people of the background. Last year we saw similar fires in California, and with them, abundant indication of something highly anomalous about them, including what for me was the tell tale giveaway: plants that were unburned, but which were rolled or pushed into bizarre shapes, as if a giant had come along and stomped or twisted them into these bizarre shapes.

As I wrote in my book Covert Wars and Breakaway Civilizations, such effects are common when very high power microwaves are directed at plants. I speculated in that book, based on some British scientists studies of crop circles, that they were formed by microwaves and most likely by microwave interferometry, and were in fact a kind of test pattern to see how closely and tightly such waves  and interferometry patterns could be controlled and manipulated. If that hypothesis and speculation be true, then the crop circles are evidence that such control can indeed be very precisely directed. What one is seeing are exotic shapes and drawings being produced by remote means the interferometry while the surrounding crops are undamaged. Im even entertaining the idea (now) that such interferometry may be creating unique localized magnetic effects, and that the magnetic effects are the direct causes of the strange patterns, and not the microwave interferometry itself.

In any case, a little reflection on this speculation will show that the same basic phenomenon is in evidence in the strange fires in California: whole houses burned to a crisp, while nearby shrubs and trees appear unburned, and in some cases, not even charred by the ambient heat of the fires. That, at least, was the case last year.

Now we have fires again, and thus far, Ive been reluctant to comment on them because I wanted to see some evidence of these types of anomalies. So far there have been statements about firenados, super-heated vortices, and speculations that these could be the result of such technologies. I suspect that they can be, but need not must be, for similar vortices were reported by the survivors of the British fire-bombings of Hamburg and Dresden during the Second World War. But Mr. D.S.M. sent a long the first video that Ive linked below, and I went looking for more by the same lady doing the analysis, and found another.

At this stage, yes, I do think there may be enough to put these most recent fires in the strange category and to see the possible use of some such exotic microwave technology, perhaps in conjunction with other technologie...

Haunting Final Interview Surfaces of Dead Journalist Jen Moore; Her Chilling Details of Abuse of Alleged Clinton Rape Victim "IndyWatch Feed World"

By True Pundit Investigative Bureau

While friends and admirers mourn the loss of investigative journalist Jen Moore who was found dead in a suburban D.C. hotel room Monday a haunting final interview has surfaced where Moore details the Clinton case she was working on at the time of her suspicious death.

Moore, an advocate who investigated abused and trafficked children, had been in the process of investigating allegations by a 26-year-old man that as a young boy he was sexually assaulted by Bill Clinton and pimped out at private sex parties attended by other D.C. elites.

Moore, who was often called Task Force as a nickname, was interviewed about the Clinton case on July 13th by YouTube and radio journalist Farmer Jones. One month later, Moores she was dead, her body found by employees at the Country Inn & Suites by Radisson, Washington, D.C. East in Capitol Heights, Maryland. The investigation is ongoing. Autopsy results were not available on Wednesday.

During the Jones interview Moore expressed dismay and frustration that despite her sharing the details with Homeland Security agents in charge of child trafficking investigations, no one had reached out to her to follow up about the details of the alleged victim. Or the alleged suspect.

Moore died of an apparent seizure. Police said the death was not the result of suicide.

Just four weeks before her death, Moore filed details of the alleged victims claims with the Department of Homeland Security, detailing the allegations against Clinton. Moore contacted Homeland Security beginning on July 6th through July 9th, records show. A week later, she contacted the FBI with identical details about the victim and the shocking allegations against Clinton.

FBI sources report no case has been opened on the evidence supplied by Moore. Homeland Security never contacted Moore to follow up after she shared details with the agency.

Perhaps part of Moores legacy will be the overt illustration that federal agencies in charge of protecting children often turn a blind eye to investigating abuse. Especially if the alleged perpetrator is an elite political figure. This case, broken down, highlights the impossibility of an alleged victim to pierce the veil of agencies like DHS and the FBI to prompt investigation of abuses for sexual assault.

Moores story confirms a recurring and disturbing David vs Goliath scenario where, in essence, Goliath never even has to show up to fight because the federal system is already set up to protect Americas political Goliaths. While the Davids of the world, who muster up the courage to come forward and tell their stories, suffer...

Biomimetics comes to STEM education "IndyWatch Feed World"

The Wyss Institute at Harvard is "Inspired by Nature," as they say in their mission statement: At the Wyss Institute, we leverage recent insights into how Nature builds, controls and manufactures to develop new engineering innovations - a new field of research we call Biologically Inspired Engineering. By emulating biological principles of self-assembly, organization and regulation, we are developing disruptive technology solutions for healthcare, energy, architecture, robotics, and manufacturing, which are translated into commercial products and therapies through formation of new startups and corporate alliances. More focus on biological engineering, as distinct from Darwinian happenstance, can only be good. Whatever "Nature" is, it "builds, controls and manufactures" things in ways that inspire human imitation. We've mentioned the Wyss Center several times, most recently here, where we saw some of its bio-inspired engineers trying to imitate the "robust mechanical properties" of grass. The center has propelled research to the point now where they need to grow a crop of students ready to enter the field. As you often hear lamented in the news, the U.S. is lagging behind in STEM fields (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) which are vital to the work of biomimetics institutes such as the Wyss Center. For its latest project, therefore, Wyss joined with Northwestern University to enter the education field, designing lessons to help students grasp the concepts they will need as future scientists.

Is Stress Keeping You Up at Night? If So, Heres What You Can Do "IndyWatch Feed World"

How often do you climb into bed after a long exhausting day, ready to catch some Zzzsonly to find that your brain has other plans?

Insomnia caused by worry is not uncommon in fact, according to a new poll, stress is keeping a lot of of people awake at night.

A whopping sixty-nine percent of Americans say they occasionally lose sleep because they are worried about something, according to a survey conducted by Bankrate.

Research firm GfK Custom Research polled 1,000 Americans on behalf of Bankrate to find out whats keeping them up at night. Participants were allowed to select more than one answer.

Relationship worries cause 41 percent of those polled to lose sleep. Financial concerns came in a close second, with 36 percent of Americans saying worrying about money keeps them up at night.

Concerns vary a bit among different generations. Here are some of the surveys findings:

Half of millennials lose sleep over relationships. Just 36 percent of baby boomers and 42 percent of Gen Xers say the same.

Compared with members of older generations, millennials are also more likely to say they lose sleep because theyre stressed about work (39 percent). Thats true for only 22 percent of baby boomers and 37 percent of Gen Xers.

Older millennials (ages 28 to 37) are most likely to say they occasionally lose sleep 77 percent of them lie awake at night because of something on their minds.

For younger baby boomers (ages 54 to 63), money is the top concern keeping them up at night. Thirty-nine percent say financial worries occasionally keep them from falling asleep.

The oldest Americans, of course, are most concerned about health. Twenty-nine percent of survey respondents said they lose sleep thinking about health-related issues.

Overall, 36 percent of Americans confess that financial worries occasionally affect their ability to fall asleep.

Top financial concerns among all of the participants in the survey include:

  • Saving enough for retirement (18...

A group calling itself the government of New Zealand has banned sales of homes to foreign nationals in an attempt to curb rising prices (archived). Under the measure, which exempts buyers of Australian and Singaporean nationality, foreigners would be restricted to purchasing apartments in large scale block developments.

In recent years New Zealand has seen substantial real estate demand from wealthy buyers from China and the US looking for a retreat from instability in larger Anglophone areas. With home ownership among adult New Zealanders floating around ~25 percent, this measure has the potential to deliver some serious pain to their rental market.

Cobra: Key to Freedom Meditation Report "IndyWatch Feed World"

By Cobra

With our meditation we have reached about 70% of the critical mass. Although all goals of the meditation have not been achieved, our accomplishments have been substantial.

The process of our meditation was reflected in these Gaia Portal messages:

https://gaiaportal.wordpress.com/2018/08/01/participants-in-the-ascension-become-aware/

https://gaiaportal.wordpress.com/2018/08/11/explosive-light-remedies-are-presented-and-applied-to-all-gaia-conflicts/

With our meditation, one aspect of the deadlock that holds Earth in quarantine status has been resolved. This has triggered a cascade of clearing sequences that will last for about a month. After that time, the situation will be evaluated and a new report given.

As a result of our meditation, most anomalous plasma and plasma toplet bombs in the Near Earth orbit have been cleared. Anomalous plasma with all remaining toplet bombs now tends to gravitate towards the surface.
The head of the Yaldabaoth entity is almost completely disintegrated, with lesser plasmoid entities in rapid disintegration also.

A few more layers of toplet bombs will be removed in the coming month.


When Mjolnir has touched the surface of the planet on March 8th, the Pleiadian feet has begun with surface clearing operations. Surface clearing operations have proven to be far more difficult than expected because in vast majority of cases, the surface population is not following their spiritual guidance.

People are not following their inner guidance because they have been programmed with selfishness Archon mind program. This program gives people a distorted understanding of Nash equilibrium. People incorrectly assume that the will be better off if they only take care of themselves and exclude all others. This creates a highly entropic society that is extremely difficult to predict, because chaotic free wills of surface individuals pose a n-body problem:

The Best of Frenemies: The Trump-Media Logrolling "IndyWatch Feed World"

Today, hundreds of newspapers, at the initiative of the Boston Globe, are purporting to stand up for a free press against Trumps rhetoric.

Today also marks exactly one month since I was dragged out of the July 16 Trump-Putin news conference in Helsinki and locked up until the middle of the night.

As laid in my cell, I chuckled at the notion that the city was full of billboards proclaiming Finland was the land of free press.

So, Ive grown an especially high sensitivity to both goonish behavior toward journalists trying to ask tough questions and to those professing they are defending a free press when they are actually engaging in a marketing exercise.

As some have noted, the editorials today will likely help Trump whip up support among his base against a monolithic media. But, just as clearly, the establishment media can draw attention away from their own failures, corruptions and falsehoods simply by focusing on Trumps.

Big media outlets need not actually report news that affects your life and point to serious solutions for social ills. They can just bad mouth Trump. And Trump need not deliver on campaign promises that tapped into populist and isolationist tendencies in the U.S. public that have grown in reaction to years of elite rule. He need only deride the major media.

They are at worst frenemies. More likely, at times, Trump and the establishment media log roll with each other. The major media built up Trump. Trumps attacks effectively elevate a select few media celebrities.

My case is a small but telling one. Major media outlets were more likely to disinform about the manhandling I received in my attempt to ask about U.S., Russian and Israeli nuclear threats to humanity Ill soon give a detailed rebuttal to the torrent of falsehoods, some of which Ive already noted on social media  than to crusade against it.

Bayer Shares Plunge By 12.5 Billion After Monsanto Court Case "IndyWatch Feed World"

Bayer AG, the German multinational pharmaceutical and life sciences company, is in panic after a huge share sell off on Monday morning, following the decision from a landmark legal case in San Francisco, which judged that the glyphosate-based weedkiller Roundup causes cancer. SEE: Jury Ruled Monsanto Liable In Case Of Man Dying Of Cancer After Using Weedkiller

The German companys newly acquired Monsanto subsidiary was left in shock Friday after they lost a landmark cancer trial in San Francisco and was ordered by the Judge to pay over USD 289 Million in total damages to the former school groundskeeper Dewayne Johnson, a California father who has non-Hodgkins lymphoma, which was caused by Monsantos glyphosate-based weedkiller Roundup.

Johnson, a father of three and former school groundskeeper, who doctors say may have just months to live, was the first person to take Monsanto to trial over allegations that the chemical sold under the Roundup brand causes cancer. About 4,000 other people in the U.S. claim in lawsuits they were sickened by Roundup.

Johnsons attorneys said he was diagnosed with non-Hodgkins Lymphoma after spraying the glyphosate-based Roundup weed killer for two and a half years.

Monsanto is responsible for Dewayne Lee Johnsons illness, suffering and reduced life expectancy because of the cancer-causing nature of its product, glyphosate-based weedkiller Roundup, the San Francisco Superior Court jury determined on Friday. The jury deliberated for three days after a four-week trial.

The damages included $2.3 million in economic losses, $37 million for pain and emotional distress and $250 million in punitive damages. The punitive damages were based on the jurys unanimous finding that Monsanto had acted with malice or oppression toward Johnson.

Johnson has undergone chemotherapy and is considering a bone-marrow transplant. One of his doctors testified that Johnson is unlikely to survive until 2020.

The 3 Trigger Terms Being Used to Stop Critical Thinking "IndyWatch Feed World"

Sigmund Fraud, Staff Writer
Waking Times

Its a strange world of newspeak we live in. What was once a society devoted to logic and progress is now being herded in echo chambers of thought control and anti-critical thinking. Without the ability to examine an issue impartially and completely there is little hope of maintaining liberty and freedom, as history repeatedly demonstrated.

Today, we find that thinking is a diminishing art, and in its place, sound bites and stop-thought terms are used to put the brakes on the mind. These terms are widely used as signals to prevent minds from looking too deeply at a topic or issue.

Thinking critically means making reasoned judgments that are logical and well thought out. It is a way of thinking in which one doesnt simply accept all arguments and conclusions to which one is exposed without questioning the arguments and conclusions. It requires curiosity, skepticism and humility. People who use critical thinking are the ones who say things such as, How do you know that? Is this conclusion based on evidence or gut feelings? and Are there alternative possibilities when given new pieces of information?  [Source]

The three terms most widely used today to this avail are detailed below.

1.) Conspiracy Theorist This term is so overused that it really is devoid of any practical meaning. If you were to examine it at face value, though, it describes a person who is looking to understand injustices in our world and is willing to look at uncomfortable facts in search of negative influence of which there is plenty in our world today.

However, conspiracy theorist has literally become a derogatory term that is attributed to anyone who refuses to accept mainstream narratives at face value. It doesnt m...

Losing the war in Afghanistan: Like Viet Cong, Taliban knows waiting it out will defeat US invaders "IndyWatch Feed World"

The latest conflicting reports about whether or not the Taliban has taken the strategic city of Ghazni between the Afghan capital of Kabul and Kandahar reflect the dilemma and difficulties that the American forces face today. The concerns come despite the firepower and technology that the US has applied against an insurgent force, which has taken over more than 50 percent of the country. This is despite America having almost completely driven out the Taliban when it first invaded Afghanistan in late 2001. The battle for Ghazni and indeed the effort to defeat the Taliban in remote areas of the country suggest that, notwithstanding the intelligence, technology and communications capabilities at its disposal, the US is losing the battle to secure the country. If the Taliban occupies Ghazni by defeating Afghan forces, it effectively would cut off southern Afghanistan from the Kabul government, which would represent a significant development. As one intelligence official recently told this writer, if the US were to pull its troops out of Afghanistan, Kabul and the corrupt US-installed government there wouldn't last beyond a week despite the 16 years that the US has been fighting in the country. Indeed, the Taliban have shown no intention of joining the government, and refuse to negotiate anything as long as foreign forces, namely the US and its NATO allies, remain in the country.

RBS bankers joked about destroying the US housing market "IndyWatch Feed World"

Transcripts of pre-financial crisis conversations show senior bankers disregard for customers

By Rob Davies

RBS bankers joked about destroying the US housing market after making millions by trading loans that staff described as total fucking garbage, according to transcripts released as part of a $4.9bn (3.8bn) settlement with US prosecutors.

Details of internal conversations at the bank emerged just weeks before the 10-year anniversary of the financial crisis, which saw RBS rescued with a 45bn bailout from the UK government.

The US Department of Justice (DoJ) criticised RBS over its trade in residential mortgage backed securities (RMBS) financial instruments underwritten by risky home loans that are cited as pivotal in the global banking crash.

It said the bank made false and misleading representations to investors in order to sell more of the RMBS, which are forecast to result in losses of $55bn to investors.

Transcripts published alongside the settlement reveal the attitude among senior bankers at RBS towards some of the products they sold.

The banks chief credit officer in the US referred to selling investors products backed by total fucking garbage loans with fraud [that]was so rampant [and]all random.

He added that the loans are all disguised to, you know, look okay kind of in a data file.

The DoJ said senior RBS executives showed little regard for their misconduct and, internally, made light of it.

In one exchange, as the extent of the contagion in the banking industry was becoming clear, RBS head trader received a call from a friend who said: [Im] sure your parents never imagine[d]theyd raise a son who [would]destroy the housing market in the richest nation on the planet.

He responded: I take exception to the word destroy. I am more comfortable with severely damage.

Another senior banker explained to a colleague that risky loans were the result of a broken mortgage industry that meant lenders were raking in the money and were incentivised to make as many loans as possible.

Employees who might raise the alarm about the riskiness of such lending dont give a shit because theyre not getting paid, he said.

'Trains don't work, but immigration continues': Sweden facing historic election upset next month as population gets fed up with establishment "IndyWatch Feed World"

"Trains and hospitals don't work, but immigration continues," Roger Mathson, a retired vegetable oil factory worker in Sweden, told Bloomberg on the same day as the violent, coordinated rampage by masked gangs of youths across five Swedish cities. We noted earlier that Swedish politicians were quick to react with anti-immigrant party 'Sweden Democrats' seeing a surge in the polls ahead of the September 9th election. "I'm not a racist, but I'm a nationalist," Mathson said. "I don't like seeing the town square full of Niqab-clad ladies and people fighting with each other." Is Sweden set to have its own political earthquake in September, where general elections could end a century of Social Democratic dominance and bring to power a little known (on the world stage), but the now hugely popular nationalist party often dubbed far-right and right-wing populist, called Sweden Democrats? Sweden, a historically largely homogeneous population of 10 million, took in an astounding 600,000 refugees over the past five years, and after Swedes across various cities looked out their windows Tuesday to see cars exploding, smoke filling the skies, and possibly armed masked men hurling explosives around busy parking lots, it appears they've had enough.

To begin with, America is no longer a country. It is a set of special interests occupying the same place: Corporations, races, ethnicities, faiths, ideologies, foreign agents pretending to be Americans, all at each others throats. No cure is possible.

Racial relations are a disaster. Blacks, fourteen percent of the country, are congenitally furious at whites. They neither assimilate nor want to. Whether they should doesnt matter since it will not happen. They give their children strange names to differentiate them from whites, maintain a separate language sometimes called Ebonics - blacks in other countries learn to speak normally - and concentrate in huge all-black Sowetos: Philadelphia, Baltimore, Chicago, Newark, Trenton , Camden, Atlanta, Milwaukee, East St. Louis, New Orleans. And many others. Horrific crime and horrific schools produce each year a large cohort who, barely literate, will for fifty years be unable to fit into the economy or into white (or  Hispanic) society. This will not change. If it were going to, it would have.

Aretha Franklin, Queen of Soul, Dies at 76 "IndyWatch Feed World"

NEW YORK (AP) Aretha Franklin, the undisputed Queen of Soul who sang with matchless style on such classics as Think, I Say a Little Prayer and her signature song, Respect, and stood as a cultural icon around the globe, has died at age 76 from pancreatic cancer.

Publicist Gwendolyn Quinn tells The Associated Press through a family statement that Franklin died Thursday at 9:50 a.m. at her home in Detroit. The statement said Franklins official cause of death was due to advanced pancreatic cancer of the neuroendocrine type, which was confirmed by Franklins oncologist, Dr. Philip Phillips of Karmanos Cancer Institute in Detroit

The family added: In one of the darkest moments of our lives, we are not able to find the appropriate words to express the pain in our heart. We have lost the matriarch and rock of our family. The love she had for her children, grandchildren, nieces, nephews, and cousins knew no bounds.

The statement continued:

We have been deeply touched by the incredible outpouring of love and support we have received from close friends, supporters and fans all around the world. Thank you for your compassion and prayers. We have felt your love for Aretha and it brings us comfort to know that her legacy will live on. As we grieve, we ask that you respect our privacy during this difficult time.

Funeral arrangements will be announced in the coming days.

Franklin, who had battled undisclosed health issues in recent years, had in 2017 announced her retirement from touring.

A professional singer and accomplished pianist by her late teens, a superstar by her mid-20s, Franklin had long ago settled any arguments over who was the greatest popular vocalist of her time. Her gifts, natural and acquired, were a multi-octave mezzo-soprano, gospel passion and training worthy of a preachers daughter, taste sophisticated and eccentric, and the courage to channel private pain into liberating song.

Strzok was, however, kicked off of the team of special counsel Robert Mueller for precisely that reason, prior to being sacked.

How Rockefeller Bankrolled Soviet Russia "IndyWatch Feed World"

Forgotten history: US bankers financing US enemiesand why it is important now

By Jon Rappoport

In 1971, Gary Allen published his book, None Dare Call it Conspiracy. It quickly became an unofficial best seller.

Over the years, several million copies have been sold.

Allens thesis was stark: super-rich American capitalists were financing socialism. This bizarre paradox was resolved when socialism was properly understoodnot as power to the peoplebut as elite power over the people. In other words, as a hoax.

These days, the socialist hoax is still unknown to most of the population.

Cloak a global power grab as progress for all of humanity.

Here, from chapter six of None Dare Call it Conspiracy, The Rockefellers and the Reds, is a devastating passage commenting on the period just after the Russian Revolution of 1917:

The Rockefellers assigned their public relations agent, Ivy Lee, to sell the American public the idea that the Bolsheviks were merely misunderstood idealists who were actually kind benefactors of mankind.

Professor Antony Sutton of Stanford Universitys Hoover Institution, notes in his highly authoritative Western Technology and Soviet Economic Development:

Quite predictably[Ivy] Lee concludes that the communist problem is merely psychological. By this time he is talking about Russians (not Communists) and concludes they are all right. He suggests the United States should not engage in propaganda; makes a plea for peaceful coexistence; and suggests the United States would find it sound policy to recognize the USSR and advance credits [give loans]. (Antony Sutton, Western Technology and Soviet Economic Development, 1917-1930, Hoover Institution on War, Revolution and Peace, Stanford University, Calif., 1968, p.292)

After the Bolshevik Revolution, Standard of New Jersey [Rockefeller] bought 50 per cent of the Nobels huge Caucasus oil fields even though the property had theoretically been nationalized [by Russia]. (OConnor, Harvey, The Empire Of Oil, Monthly Review Press, New York, 1955, p.270.)

In 1927, Standard Oil of New York [Rockefeller] built a refinery in Russia, thereby helping the Bolsheviks put their economy back on its feet. Professor Sutton states: This was the first United States investment in Russia sin...

What If There Were No Official Narratives? "IndyWatch Feed World"

After the mass medias complicity in selling the Iraq invasion to the western world, we should have seen scores of people fired and changes put in place to prevent such unforgivable complicity from ever occurring again. Instead, no changes whatsoever were made to ensure that news media outlets never facilitate another disaster at the hands of secretive government agencies, and now these same outlets are allowed to promote world-shaping narratives on no evidentiary basis beyond Its true because we said so.

Theres a consensus, agreed-upon narrative about whats going on in the world that is advanced by all mass media outlets regardless of what political sector those outlets market themselves to. Exactly what should be done about individual events and situations might vary a bit from pundit to pundit and outlet to outlet, but the overall how it is narrative about whats happening is the same across the board. This is the official narrative, and the plutocrat-owned media/political class has full control over it.

Soil Microbes Speed up Global Warming "IndyWatch Feed World"

As the world warms so does much of the planets basic matter, thanks to its subterranean citizens, the soil microbes, intent on putting more energy into the important business of decay and recycling.

As a consequence, everywhere, more carbon dioxide escapes into the atmosphere, according to a new study. And since there is at least twice as much carbon in the soil mostly in the form of plant detritus as there is in the atmosphere, the discovery is ominous.

With more of the greenhouse gas escaping from soil to air, so the rate at which the world warms picks up speed, to accelerate yet further soil respiration.

US researchers report in the journal Nature that they looked at results from more than 1,500 studies and data from more than 500 monitoring towers around the world that measure temperature, rainfall and other evidence, to conclude that between 1990 and 2014 the rate of soil respiration has increased by 1.2%.

Its important to note that this is a finding based on observations in the real world. This is not a tightly controlled lab experiment, said first author Ben Bond-Lamberty of the Joint Global Change Research Institute, partnered by the US Pacific Northwest National Laboratory and the University of Maryland.

With rising soil respiration rates, you wont have an intact land carbon sink forever

Soils around the globe are responding to a warming climate, which in turn can convert more carbon into carbon dioxide which enters the atmosphere. Depending on how other components of the carbon cycle might respond due to climate warming, these soil changes can potentially contribute to even higher temperatures due to a feedback loop.

The role of soil microbes remains one of the great unknowns in the climate conundrum. A microbe bacterium or fungus is tiny but vital. Single-celled creatures managed the living world for two billion years before the first complex animals and plants, turning carbon dioxide into carbon and oxygen, and then converting dead lifeforms back into new raw materials for life.

And their numbers are huge: so vast that terrestrial bacteria add up to 70 billion tons of living carbon, and fungi another 12 billion tons, according to a recent estimate. Together these microbes weigh 40 times as much as all the animals on the planet.

And for years climate scientists have puzzled about the impact of warming on the silent living things under foot and out of s...

Women of Color Are Making History Ahead of Midterms "IndyWatch Feed World"

It has been a banner year for women running in elections across the country in statehouse, gubernatorial and congressional races. But women of color, who have been so dramatically underrepresented in the halls of power for so long, are making particularly significant gains. Whats even more exciting is that many of them are going beyond standard identity politics and espousing strongly progressive positions. While the more important battles will come in Novembers general elections, the primary races have already indicated that we are witnessing a game-changing moment in the nations political landscape.

Much has been written about the breakout star of the New York primary, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who stunned the nation in an overwhelming victory against top Democrat Joe Crowley in the Bronx and Queens for a House seat. The 28-year-old self-identified democratic socialist of Puerto Rican heritage, who is expected to handily beat her little-known Republican opponent in November, is slated to become the youngest woman ever to serve in Congress.

Two progressive Muslim womenPalestinian-American Rashida Tlaib in Michigan and Somali-American Ilhan Omar in Minnesotarecently won their respective Democratic Party primaries for seats in the House. Both women are running in strongly Democratic districts, with Tlaib poised to win the seat vacated by John Conyers and Omar appearing likely to replace Rep. Keith Ellison (who has stepped down to run for another office). Together, they would lead the way as the first Muslim women to ever serve in the U.S. Congress. Even more significantly, both women espouse core progressive demands such as Medicare for all, abolishing ICE, and a $15-an-hour minimum wage.

New Mexicos Deb Haaland could also make history in November, if she beats her Republican opponent, Janice Arnold-Jones, by becoming the nations first Native American woman to serve in Congress. A new poll showed her with a small but significant lead against Arnold-Jones, who is a Trumpian Republican. Haaland is also progressive, especially on issues of womens reproducti...

A Snapshot of the Internet Kill Switch in 2018 "IndyWatch Feed World"

Terence Newton, Staff Writer
Waking Times 

For over a decade now, activists and truth-seekers have been watching the growing influence of the internet on society and politics, pointing out that when millions of people become informed to truth, it would drastically change the political landscape in America and around the world.

And it has.

At the same time, weve been warned that when mass, virtually free information sharing by the general public became a genuine threat to the establishment and status quo, that an internet kill switch was ready behind the scenes to shut it all down.

And it is.

But while ten years ago, this prospect conjured up images of an actual switch in a DARPA facility somewhere in the Rocky Mountains that would literally power down the infrastructure and back bone of the world-wide web, we are seeing today what the kill switch really looks like. It really is more of corporate/government affair that targets unwanted information.

This is the true form of the internet kill switch as it appears in 2018.

1.) Violation of Community Guidelines (The Outright Ban) First and foremost is the now ubiquitous, blanket statement that users of corporate media platforms get when their pages, channels, accounts are shut down. It never points to anything specific, or offers an opportunity to right the transgression. It is legalese for f$#k off, youre not wanted around here.

2.) Shadow Banning This is the act of allowing a persona non grata to continue to use a corporate media platform, but not allowing their posts or content to actually be seen by anyone.

3.) Throttling of Reach Businesses and media organizations across the board have been seeing a steady and dramatic decline in their ability to reach their audience. The number of page likes really means absolutely nothing, and while these people have signed up to receive content from you, the social media platforms make sure that only a tiny fraction of your audience actually get...

Trump Reportedly Greenlights Use of Cyberattacks Scrapping Obama-Era Directive "IndyWatch Feed World"

(Sputnik) President Trump has reversed an Obama-era memorandum on how and when the US government can deploy cyberweapons against its adversaries, in an effort to loosen restrictions on such operations, The Wall Street Journal wrote, citing sources familiar with the matter.

The executive order signed by Trump on Wednesday is a retreat from an Obama-era memorandum known as Presidential Policy Directive 20 signed by then-Presidnet Barack Obama in February 2009, that outlined an interagency process to be followed  before the United States uses cyberattacks, particularly those targeting the countrys adversaries.

The sources the WSJ spoke to declined to go into the details of the new directive, citing its classified nature.

President Trump earlier criticized the excessively bureaucratic procedure of implementing the Presidential Policy Directive 20 complaining about the large number of federal agencies involved in the process.

On June 18, the Pentagon authorized the US Cyber Command to raid foreign networks almost  on a daily basis hoping that that such pre-emptive measures would help disable cyberweapons before they can be used.

Created in 2009, the US Cyber Command (USCYBERCOM) unifies the direction of cyberspace operations, strengthens the Pentagons cyberspace capabilities, and integrates and bolsters its cyber expertise. While originally created with a defensive mission in mind, it has increasingly been viewed as an offensive force.

French doctor who claims homosexuality is treatable by homeopathy faces medical investigation "IndyWatch Feed World"

A French doctor who claimed that homosexuality can be treated by alternative medicine is facing a Swiss government probe. The Geneva-based homeopath Jean-Yves Henry said homosexuality is "not a pathology but a special symptom." Henry published a paper saying that homosexuality is a symptom of illness, and can be treated with homeopathy and alternative medicine depending on the patient's gender. Geneva regional health minister Mauro Poggia has urged the government body that oversees health professionals and patient rights in the Swiss canton to investigate the doctor's practice. "For him, it would seem that homosexuality is an illness to cure. This element is enough to justify opening an investigation," Poggia told Le Courrier daily. The case was brought to Poggia's attention following significant backlash on social media, with Twitter users dubbing the French doctor a "clown," an "insult to science," and a "charlatan."

World is drowning in debt and it spells disaster for everyone "IndyWatch Feed World"

The entire planet is swimming in debt, yet no one seems to criticize the system itself as being fundamentally flawed.

A man in debt is so far a slave, American essayist Ralph Waldo Emerson once reportedly said.

In light of this statement, I contend that I dont need to have a college degree in economics to tell you that our current financial system enslaving the entire world is not sustainable and headed for one hell of a spectacularly ugly crash.

Last month, the Washington-based Institute of International Finance published their latest statistics indicating that global debt had reached $247.2 trillion by the end of March this year, an increase of 11.1 percent from last year alone. In other words, since the start of this year, global debt rose by a whopping $8 trillion in just three to four months.

The global debt-to GDP ratio currently exceeds 318 percent, having risen for the first time since the third quarter of 2016. Just the US debt to GDP ratio alone currently exceeds 100 percent. This debt-to-GDP ratio is 12 percentage points higher than in 2009, during the aftermath of the global financial crisis.

Five Examples That Show Internet Censorship Is as Much a Threat to the Left as the Right "IndyWatch Feed World"

The banning of right wing controversialist Alex Jones from multiple social media platforms last week was a cause of celebration for many liberals, but should those on the left really be so complacent about creeping censorship?

So far, the evidence suggest that there is indeed plenty for the left to worry about when it comes to corporations like Facebook and Twitter and their alliances with government censors.

1. Facebook censorship of Venezuelan news

In May, Facebook partnered with the Atlantic Council in an effort to weed out inauthentic content on the platform. This organization is funded by various NATO governments and a slew of arms manufacturers like Raytheon, Lockheed Martin and Northrop Grumman. Its board includes names like Henry Kissinger and former CIA director Michael Hayden and it has consistently lobbied for regime change in Syria and, you guessed it, Venezuela, where it has funnelled large amounts of money into pro-opposition groups for years.

So, its no surprise that weeks after Facebook partnered up with this less-than-objective group, it deleted from its platform the page belonging to top English-language, left-leaning Latin American news outlet Telesur without any explanation at all. The page was restored two days later, with Facebook citing vague instability on the platform as the cause of the block.

Telesur just so happens to be one of the only major outlets reporting on events in Venezuela in a manner that goes against the US government position and US mainstream media perspective so obviously, out with Alex Jones it must go.

It wasnt just Telesur, though. Facebook deleted the pages belonging to independent grassroots Venezuela Analysis and Haiti Analysis, which are also leftist websites highly critical of US foreign policy in Latin America and the Caribbean region.

Prepare for the coming chaos "IndyWatch Feed World"

We havent seen carnage like this in the global financial marketplace in quite some time.  On Wednesday, U.S. stocks were down some, but things were much, much worse around the rest of the world.  Global banking stocks are plunging, emerging market stocks are cratering, and emerging market currencies continue their stunning decline.  This represents a dramatic change from the relative stability that we have seen throughout most of 2018.  It is almost as if someone flipped a switch once the month of August began, and the shakiness of global financial markets has many investors wondering what trouble fall will bring.  What we are witnessing right now is not a full-blown panic yet, but it definitely has the potential to turn into one.

The term bear market is being thrown around a lot lately, but a lot of people dont understand what a bear market actually is.

A bear market is generally considered to be when we see a decline of 20 percent or more from the 52-week high, and after the carnage of this past week a lot of those thresholds are now being crossed.

It would probably be too early to call this a global stock market crash, but we are well on the way to getting there.  The following are 5 signs that global financial markets are entering a bear market

#1 Global stocks have now fallen beneath all key moving averages.  Those key moving averages are important psychological thresholds for investors, and if we have a few more days like Wednesday we could see global financial markets go into full panic mode.

#2 European banking stocks have now officially entered a bear market, and all major European stock indexes are now red for the year.

#3 Global banking stocks are down a whopping 23 percent from the peak established earlier this year, and that means that they have officially entered a bear market.

Facebook bans Infowars for 'hatespeech' but allows rapper who posted child porn to Instagram to keep his account "IndyWatch Feed World"

As the Free Thought Project pointed out last week, a concerted effort by multiple social media companies and tech giants was formed to remove Alex Jones from their platforms. These platforms, including Facebook, claimed Jones' rhetoric violated their terms of service, so they effectively eradicated his audience on social media. As TFTP reported, Jones pushes anti-Muslim rhetoric, plays right along with the two-party paradigm, and serves as little more than a cheerleader for the current president, all while stoking division all the way along. His words are often hateful and he sometimes spreads outrageous conspiracy theories. While Jones may distribute a ton of questionable content, he's never posted anything illegal and, he has never posted videos of child porn to any of his platforms. What does child porn have to do with Alex Jones, you ask? Well, nothing really unless we compare Jones getting banned for his entirely legal political speech while others have posted literal child porn to social media and maintain their accounts. Seriously. For those who may be unfamiliar, rapper Daniel Hernandez, aka Tekashi 6ix9ine, is facing three years in prison for uploading videos to Instagram of he and a friend having sexual contact with a naked 13-year-old girl.

In a matter of decades, for example, they say one computer will have more capacity than all the human brains on the planet put together.

Then, the prediction goes, AI will be virtually human, or more than human.

However, just because AI has greater computational skills than any person or group of persons, where is the quality that makes it human?

In order to answer that, you have to perform a little trick. You have to downgrade your assessment of humans. You have to say that humans are really only high-class machines.

Many pundits have no difficulty with this.

Consider their genes-cause-everything hypothesis: Since all existence is assumed to take place on a material level, on a physical level, it's only a matter of time until we figure out which genes create which human qualities; eventually, we'll have a complete map.

To change humans, we just fiddle with the genes.

Of course, this style of reasoning can be used to justify external control of Earth's population. The assumption is: we are already living in a closed system of cause and effect, and that system IS controlling all human behavior. Gene tinkering and handing over immense decision-power to advanced computers is nothing more than re-arranging the closed system. It was closed and it is closed and it will be closed. No problem.

Right now, the system appears to dictate wars and pain and suffering, so won't it be much better when the gene-reconfiguration and the AI computers-in-charge eliminate that aspect of things?

Believe me, many scientists are thinking along these lines, and they are serious about their goals.

Lockheed Martin Awarded Over $3 Billion in Govt Contracts in Just Two Days, As Military Frets About Russian, Chinese Advances "IndyWatch Feed World"

WASHINGTON The U.S. Air Force announced within the span of two days earlier this week that it had awarded over $3.3 billion in contracts to U.S. weapons giant Lockheed Martin. The first of these contracts, totaling $480 million, was announced on Monday and tasked Lockheed with designing a new hypersonic missile. The new missile, known as the Air-Launched Rapid Response Weapon (ARRW), is the second hypersonic missile under development at Lockheed, as the U.S. Air Force awarded a $928 million contract to the company this past April to develop the Hypersonic Conventional Strike Weapon (HCSW) program.

The second contract, totaling a sizable $2.9 billion, was awarded to Lockheed on Tuesday and tasks the company with creating three missile-warning satellites, with each satellite set to cost just under $1 billion each.

What grave threat has prompted the U.S. military to spend over $3 billion on new missiles in just four months? According to military officials, the answer is Russia and China, as statements made earlier this year by Air Force officials clearly show that new missiles developed by Russia and China are significantly superior to those currently used by the U.S.

In January, the Vice Chairman of the Joint Chiefs, Air Force Gen. Paul Selva, told reporters, We have lost our technical advantage in hypersonics; we havent lost the hypersonics fight, adding that China has made it a national program, so Chinas willing to spend tens up to hundreds of billions to solve the problem of hypersonic flight, hypersonic target designation, and then ultimately engagement.

A few months later in March, Air Force Gen. John Hyten, commander of U.S. Strategic Command, told the Senate Armed Services Committee that we [U.S.] dont have any defense that could deny the employment of such a weapon [hypersonic missiles] against us. Hyten also stated t...

European Union on Tuesday stepped up its legal threats to Poland over its controversial Supreme Court reforms "IndyWatch Feed World"

European Union on Tuesday stepped up its legal threats to Poland over its controversial Supreme Court reforms, giving Warsaw one month to comply or risk being hauled before the blocs top court.

The move raises the stakes in a bitter, long-running confrontation between the European Commission and Polands right-wing government over the rule of law in the former communist state.

Brussels launched so-called infringement proceedings against Warsaw on July 2 over the changes introduced by the ruling Law and Justice party (PiS), which critics say put the judicial system under government control and are a threat to Polish democracy.

The European Commission said that after carrying out a thorough analysis of Warsaws response, it had now decided to begin the second step of legal action against Poland.

The response of the Polish authorities does not alleviate the Commissions legal concerns, it said in a statement.

The Polish authorities now have one month to take the necessary measures to comply with this Reasoned Opinion. If the Polish authorities do not take appropriate measures, the Commission may decide to refer the case to the Court of Justice of the EU.

Silicon Valley giants aren't the same as Christian bakeries "IndyWatch Feed World"

BNN EDIT: LBJ Library/Flickr, Getty Images: Ludovic Marin/AFP, Drew Angerer, Justin Sullivan In the intense debate that followed the rapid-fire censorship of Alex Jones and Infowars across virtually every major digital distribution platform last week, no argument has been lazier than the comparison with Christian-owned bakeries. According to this line of thinking, calls for tech giants to be regulated is equivalent to the leftist cry of "bake the cake, bigot!", usually yelled at Christian bakers who refuse to cater to gay weddings on the grounds of religious principle. As a short essay in the liberal imperialist neoconservative magazine Weekly Standard put it: You might recall a couple months ago when conservatives celebrated the Masterpiece Cake Shop decision. (Rightly, in my view.) The nub of their argument was that privately held businesses ought to be allowed to refuse certain kinds of services to certain customers, provided that (1) the refusal was based on reasonable, non-discriminatory grounds and that (2) the person being refused had reasonable recourse to an alternative remedy. That's precisely what has happened here.

US-Turkey Crisis: Unrealistic Ambitions and Multipolar Chaos Underlie the Latest Mideast Drama "IndyWatch Feed World"

ANKARA, TURKEY (Analysis) The United States economic war on Turkey over the detention of a U.S. pastor is showing no sign of winding down any time soon. Instead, the long-brewing row between the two countries could mark a significant break in relations between Washington and Ankara, which has long played the role of a U.S.-loyal guard at NATOs southern flank.

Washingtons financial sanctions on two Turkish ministers and doubling of tariffs on the countrys aluminum and steel products sparked a sharp devaluing of the Turkish lira, and its subsequent rebound, which has set in motion a market volatility that has spilled beyond Turkeys borders. Economists fear that the feud, if it spirals further downward, may spark a crisis of global proportions.  

Trump, for his part, has pointed to the detention of Evangelical pastor Andrew Brunson on espionage and terrorism charges as the cause of the diplomatic battle. Yet the sharp escalation of the feud between the two countries goes far beyond the pastor alone and is rooted in their overlapping and sharply conflicting geopolitical interests.

The crisis is typical of the global context, where countries have struck new diplomatic courses as the declining power and reliability of Washington forces governments to rethink their long-term foreign-policy goals.

 

Economic terrorists and back-stabbing

On Wednesday, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoan signed a decree slapping tariffs on U.S. imports, including alcohol, coal, cosmetics, rice, tobacco, and vehicles. Some of the tariffs are as high as 120 to 140 percent, depending on the product.

The move to introduce the new tariffs comes a day after Turkeys leader vowed that his country would boycott U.S. electronic goods, such as the iPhone, claiming Turks would opt for alternatives produced at home and in countries like South Korea.

Turkish Vice-President Fuat Oktay announced that the tariffs were within the framework of the principle of reciprocity in retaliation for the conscious economic attacks by the United States.

Ankaras critics claim that the collapse of the lira which has lost over 40 percent of its value this year is a result of the countrys structural economi...

UN Report Finds ISIS Given Breathing Space in US-Occupied Areas of Syria "IndyWatch Feed World"

NEW YORK A recent report from the UN Security Councils Sanctions Monitoring Team has found that many of the places in Syria where the terror group Daesh (ISIS) continues to operate, recuperate and extract oil for profit are in areas of the country occupied by the United States.

According to the reports executive summary:

Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), having been defeated militarily in Iraq and most of the Syrian Arab Republic during 2017, rallied in early 2018 [owing to] a loss of momentum by forces fighting it in the east of the Syrian Arab Republic, which prolonged access by ISIL to resources and gave it breathing space to prepare for the next phase of its evolution into a global covert network.

While the text itself doesnt explicitly state who controls these areas of Syrian territory, maps of eastern Syria make it clear that the pockets of Daesh within U.S.-controlled territory have remained unchanged in size since November 2017 while the Daesh pockets in the Syrian government-controlled portion of eastern Syria have shrunk considerably since last November.

More Fallout from Trumps Economic War as Turkey Joins Russia In Liquidating US Treasuries "IndyWatch Feed World"

Last month, when we reported that Russia had liquidated the bulk of its US Treasury holdings in just two months, we said that we cant help but wonder as the Yuan-denominated oil futures were launched, trade wars were threatened, and as more sanctions were unleashed on Russia if this wasnt a dress-rehearsal, carefully coordinated with Beijing to field test what would happen if/when China also starts to liquidate its own Treasury holdings.

As it turns out, Russia did lead the way, but not for China.

Instead, another recent US foreign nemesis, Turkey, was set to follow in Putins footsteps of diversifying away from the dollar, and in the June Treasury International Capital, Turkey completely dropped off the list of major holders of US Treasurys, which has a $30 billion floor to be classified as a major holder.

According to the US Treasury, Turkeys holdings of bonds, bills and notes tumbled by 52% since the end of 2017, dropping to $28.8 billion in June from $32.6 billion in May and $61.2 billion at the recent high of November of 2016.

Meanwhile, as we showed earlier, Russia which first fell off the list last month after being a top-10 foreign creditor to the US just a few years ago saw its Treasury holdings remain unchanged at an 11 year low of just $14.9 billion.

Shed Not a Tear for War Criminal John Brennan, Say Legal Experts "IndyWatch Feed World"

While Democratic senators, corporate talking heads, former national security officials, and Twitter pundits issued dire proclamations about the dangerous precedent President Donald Trump set on Wednesday by revoking former CIA Director John Brennans security clearance for obviously vindictive and political reasons, critics of Americas far-too-powerful intelligence apparatus were quick to express how little sympathy they feel for Brennan, given his utterly horrendous track record of defending torture and masterminding the Obama administrations deadly drone program.

John Brennan is being punished by not being able to find out who got droned yesterday, I hope hes ok, joked Splinters Libby Watson.

But while well-established critics of the American national security state refused to shed a single tear for Brennanor, for that matter, any of the other former intelligence officials on Trumps so-called enemies listthe very fact that Trump has such a list and is using the power of the presidency to punish the individuals on it sparked alarm among journalists and civil libertarians.

The First Amendment does not permit the president to revoke security clearances to punish his critics, Ben Wizner, director of the American Civil Liberties Unions Speech, Privacy, and Technology Project, argued in a statement on Wednesday, referring to the fact that the officials on Trumps list have frequently denounced the president on television.

Max Blumenthal: Nicaraguas Left-Wing Opposition MRS Lobbies the West for Regime Change "IndyWatch Feed World"

On a recent episode of my Moderate Rebels podcast with Ben Norton, I asked Nils McCune about the role of the Sandinista Renovation Movement (Movimiento Renovador Sandinista MRS) party in marketing the recent coup in Nicaragua as a progressive popular mobilization.

McCune, a longtime resident of the Nicaraguan city of Tipitapa, has worked closely with the countrys rural campesino movement and observed the coup from the ground. He is also an astute observer of the countrys politics and history.

Below is audio of our discussion and a transcript of McCunes comments on the MRS, its collaboration with right-wing elements inside Nicaragua, and its importance in selling the coup to the Western liberal-left.

The full Moderate Rebels episode can be heard here.

Nils McCune:  I think that for decades, probably for centuries, the elite have done politics, right?  And everybody else has the job of just sort of carrying out the economic activity that allows the elite to stay where they are.  And in Nicaragua, that model lasted for decades and decades until the 1920s when, out of the civil war that the United States got involved in and used as a pretext to occupy the country, a figure named Augusto Csar Sandino formed his own army to fight against the US presence here. 

And that army was based upon the idea of a difficult struggle in which the elite would cede ground to workers and to peasants, because only workers and peasants have the strength to carry out a long-term struggle for their own interests thats capable of beating imperialism.  That was his thesis, and he was really the developer of guerrilla warfare in the Americas, he was the first person to use it. 

It was successful.  The US Marines left Nicaragua after six years of occupation.  And then Sandino was betrayed and killed by Somoza, the Somoza regime got started.  But the reason thats important to keep in mind is that when the Sandinista Revolution successfully took power in 1979, there was a combination of oligarchy families that were very unhappy with Somoza, as we...

Israels Shin Bet Interrogate, Threaten US Scholar Reza Aslan "IndyWatch Feed World"

The Iranian-American scholar and writer said he was threatened by Israels Shin Bet of not seeing his children in a long time.

Iranian-American scholar Reza Aslan tweeted Tuesday that he was detained and questioned for hours by Israels Security Agency, known as the Shin Bet, while he was crossing into Israel from Jordan two weeks ago.

According to Aslan Israeli officers threatened him saying things like we can make it so you dont see your kids for a long time, and asking you think because youre a public person I cant do whatever I want with you?

Threats were issued after authorities demanded Aslan to write down the names of all Palestinian journalists, associates, and organizations he had met with.

Aslan decided to share his story after Jewish-American journalist Peter Beinart was detained for questioning at the Ben-Gurion International Airport. Beinart reported, the (interrogation) session ended when my interrogator asked me, point blank if I was planning to attend another protest.

After retelling the story of his detention, Aslan denounced the tactic used by Israeli authorities as classic police state trick. Iran has perfected it. Aslan was asked if he thought Israel shouldnt exist, to which he answered that is absurd. Im against the occupation, not Israel.

At the end of his interrogation, he was warned not to talk to any Palestinians or Israeli troublemakers

The Shin Bet has admitted to having interrogated the best-selling author and scholar but denied having threatened him or having asked about his political opinions. The Israeli agency claims Aslan raised suspicion but without explaining how. Aslan was traveling with his wife, his 3-year-old and 6-year-old children, and elderly in-laws.

This is not the first time the Shin Bet denies the testimony provided by people interrogated by their officers. Earlier this month Jewish American anti-occupation activists Simone Zimmerman and Abby Kirschbaum of the organization If Not Now were detained and questioned. Z...

Following Push by Bolton, Trump Green Lights More Cyberattacks "IndyWatch Feed World"

President Donald Trump took steps on Wednesday to loosen limits on when the US government can deploy cyberweapons against adversaries, reversing Obama-era guidelines, the Wall Street Journal reported on Wednesday.

Trump signed an order reversing Presidential Policy Directive 20 that had mapped out an elaborate interagency process before the United States engaged in cyberattacks, the Journal said, citing people familiar with the action.

The White House did not immediately respond to a Reuters request for comment.

Although the policy directive signed by former President Barack Obama was classified, its contents were made public when it was leaked in 2013 by former intelligence contractor Edward Snowden, the Journal said.

It was not clear what rules the Trump administration was adopting to replace the Obama-era policy, the Journal said. It said while a number of current US officials confirmed the directive had been reversed, they declined to comment further, citing the classified nature of the process.

One administration official briefed on the decision described it as an offensive step forward intended to help support military operations, deter foreign election influence and thwart intellectual property theft by meeting such threats with a more forceful response, the Journal said.

National security adviser John Bolton began the effort to remove the directive after he took up his position in April, the official told the Journal.

Critics of the Obama-era policy have seen it as preventing a quick and forceful response to cyberattacks by involving too many federal agencies in the planning.

For Doctors, Lawyers and Indian Chiefs



Source: Paul Stramer | By Anna Von Reitz

The doctors, lawyers, and Indian Chiefs among us --- as the old poem goes ---have an extra stumbling block between them and their freedom.

The corporations that we have been dealing with "as" our governments set "Public Policies" which are then enumerated into Administrative Code --- as in "Federal Code" and State of State Statutes.

In order to become Public Law these Public Policies/Administrative Codes have to be published in the Congressional Record and enumerated in the CFR and enrolled. Titles 17 through 50 have never passed this test, because the so-called Revised Statutes have never been enumerated and enrolled.

The point of this is that Title XXXVII (37) which causes all the problems for civilian "Uniformed Officers" is part of the Revised Statutes that have never been rendered into Public Law. They remain merely the private "policy" of the governmental services corporations masquerading as our government.

So--- all the "requirements" that doctors and lawyers and Indian Chiefs be "registered" and/or licensed, or that they have to belong to some club or union like the American Bar Association or be approved as a member of the American Medical Association are nothing more than Public Policy of a corporation and its literal franchises, the States of States organizations.

People think its "law" but it's not.

That is the First Issue.

The Second Issue is that a corporation does have the right to set Public Policy for itself and its employees. Your employer can make you wear an ugly brown uniform and an orange gingham ap...

Anna Von Reitz -- Important Point "IndyWatch Feed World"

Wednesday, August 15, 2018

Important Point:



Source: Paul Stramer | By Anna Von Reitz

A couple weeks ago, I published an Article called "This is the Big One"---- in which I observed that: (1) in commerce, the truth is established by Affidavit, and (2) that corporations cannot possibly give an Affidavit because they have no "voice" or motive force enabling them to do such a thing, and (3) since you have been "defined" to be operating in the capacity of a corporation (JOHN DOE, JOHN M.DOE, JOHN MARK DOE) you have therefore been deprived of having any voice or ability to make an Affidavit. Thus, YOU are helpless and cannot defend yourself or present the Truth in a commercial court.

So some people missed the point entirely, and others could not reason their way forward to a solution for this conundrum.

You will note that the exact verbiage of the Maxim is-- "Truth in commerce is established in the form of an Affidavit".

Thus, when you wish to act in the capacity of a Living Man in a commercial court, you do not offer an Affidavit --- because in the current scenario that allows them to ignore every word you say or write.

Instead, you offer "Living Testimony in the Form of an Affidavit".

You follow the "form" of an affidavit which is to swear or affirm for the Public and Private Record and from without the United States that your testimony is true, correct, and not misleading-- and then you enumerate your facts: 1, 2, 3, 4....

This allows the Court to hear your facts and gives de facto rebuttal to the presumption that you are acting in the capacity of a corporate franchise.

And since your opponent is a corporation, it has no ability to answer your Living...

#NottheEnemy: Ben Franklin Warned That Attack on Free Press Turns Liberty to Tyranny "IndyWatch Feed World"

Informed Comment is pleased to respond to the call of the Boston Globe for the press to fight back, on August 16, 2018, against Trumps savage attacks on journalists and the free press. This column is dedicated to James Wright Foley, whom I met in Egypt in 2012, and who was fearless and level-headed in trying to get the story for the public. He was beheaded by ISIL on August 19, 2014, for being an enemy of the people.

Ben Franklin, the founding father, was a man of many talents, among them printing. As a printer, he gave a lot of thought to issues in freedom of the press. In 1729 he bought the Pennsylvania Gazette and often wrote essays for it himself. Some fifty years before he helped craft the Constitution of the United States of America, he published on the dangers of censorship and of curbing the free press. Without a free press, he said, we cannot have a free government, and its persistent squelching would cause tyranny to be erected on its rubble.

Ben Franklin wrote

  •  in the Pennsylvania Gazette for November 17, 1737, Freedom of speech is a principal pillar of a free government: When this support is taken away, the constitution of a free society is dissolved, and tyranny is erected on its ruins. Republics and limited monarchies derive their strength and vigor from a popular examination into the action of the magistrates [officials]

An evil magistrate intrusted with the power to punish for words, would be armed with a weapon the most destructive and terrible. Under the pretence of pruning off the exuberant branches, he would be apt to destroy the tree . . .

Augustus Caesar, under the specious pretext of preserving the character of the Romans from defamation, introduced the law whereby libelling was involved in the penalties of treason against the state. This law established his tyranny; and, for one mischief which it prevented, ten thousand evils, horrible and afflicting, sprung up in its place. Thenceforward every persons life and fortune depended on the vile breath of informers. The construction of words being arbitrary, and left to the decision of the judges, no man could write or open his mouth without being in danger of forfeiting his head.

James Tracy: In Solidarity with Alex Jones Sandy Hook Mother feted by Obama was Personal Assistant to Democratic Fund Raiser Maureen White "IndyWatch Feed World"

James Tracy: In Solidarity with Alex Jones Sandy Hook Mother feted by Obama was Personal Assistant to Democratic Fund Raiser Maureen White

Mr. President,

On 16 January 2013, in the wake of the Sandy Hook school shooting, President Barack Obama signed no less than 23 executive orders to constrain our access to weapons under the 2nd Amendment. A few months thereafter, on 13 April 2013, at Obamas invitation, one Francine Wheeler delivered an impassioned speech for gun control from the Presidents Oval Office, a distinction Obama previously  conferred only upon Vice President Joe Biden. The choice is telling on multiple grounds.

Francine is likely the only actress with credits for doing the voice of a character in an animated porn feature to speak from the White House. Francine is also a musician member of The Dream Jam Band. In fact, she and her husband, David Cole Wheeler, are both professional actors with film credits. David has starred in an obscure film, Faithful, which centers around the theme of guns and suicide, and hes most recently been on the speaking circuit in the role of a bereaved Sandy Hook parent.

More to the point, the Wheelers involvement in Sandy Hook and Francines choice to speak from the Oval Office appear to derive from Francine having been previously employed as personal assistant to chief Democratic National Committee fundraiser Maureen White. In fact, White was the DNCs star campaigner, raising $51 million in 2005 alone. White then served as senior advisor on humanitarian issues in Afghanistan and Pakistan under Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, which is suggestive of the political alliances behind the Sandy Hook event.

Maureens husband, powerful Wall Street investment banker and Obama administration advisor Steve Rattner, is also a close personal friend and money manager of anti-gun crusader and founder of Mayors Against Illegal Guns Michael Bloomberg. Bloomberg used the Sandy Hook shooting as a rallying cry for more stringent federal gun control measures. Rattner is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations.

Market Talk- August 16, 2018 "IndyWatch Feed World"

The uncertainty seen in US markets shook Asian indices with all markets opening lower. Fortunately, these proved to be the days lows and most markets rallied from there. The Nikkei even managed to move positive and remained around there for the whole afternoon trading. The Yen traded back to 111 handle, but was to regain the 110s just ahead of the US close. A narrow range with no clear direction, but has performed well against a ever strengthening US Dollar. Hang Seng and Shanghai both saw a similar pattern but failed to recover at the close. Both lost around -0.7%; although, both are looking better as the US rallies. Of course, earnings have not been as good as many had hoped and a string of liquidations hit the market. Yuan is improving with headlines, but still has few friends. INR spent much of its day trading mid 70s with a -0.5% decline for the SENSEX also. Money continues to leak from emerging markets and the fear is that if the volumes were better the speed would increase.

Turkey the main talking point again, however the early rally has started to lose its appeal. The talk that Qatar plans to invest $15bn helped Turkey early doors, then the lack of details has raised concerns of this being only a temporary measure and so doubts creep back in! The 10yr bond was back over 21% after having seen a 20.30% morning print. The BIST 100 fell another 3.45%, but the Lira currently trades better by around 1.3% on the day. The other market in focus was FTSE MIB after the highway bridge collapse in Italy. The market finished down 2% with the core stock (Atlantia owns road management) fell 23% following the news. Both the Euro and GBP held their ground for mush of the day, but is starting to drift as the demand for dollars returns. All core Europe closed at their days highs, leading to optimism for the weeks close tomorrow.

The mood set by futures accelerated once the cash market opened. At one stage we saw the DOW up nearly 450 points, its largest daily gain in five months. Obviously, the talk that trade talks are to be resumed started the rally, but then some earnings beats (Walmart) helped accelerate that momentum. As we close this evening, the S+P is only 30 points away, the DOW less than 1000 and the N...

Joe Olson: Yaacov Apelbaum on The Mechanics of Democratic Deception an OSINT Case Study of the Christopher Steele Dossier Against Donald Trump Includes Browder Gold War Magnitsky McCain Connections "IndyWatch Feed World"

The network graph analysis indicates that the fellowship of the dossier is a close-knit group; everyone knew each other long before embarking on the quest to find the alleged Russian collusion. All of the project key players are related through marriage, family relations, or work affiliations.

Sidney Blumenthals network is noteworthy because his email address book contains many of the dossier characters including Jacoby, Simpson, Winer, and others.

A sampling of Blumenthals first 20 contacts (out of over 4000) shows an over 96% linkage to anti-Trump publications, most of these are from mainstream media sources.

So who researched and wrote the core parts of the dossier? It looks like it was a team effort. Most of the textual evidence points to Glenn Simpson and his wife Mary Jacoby as the architects of the dossier framework.

The bottom line:

Simpson and Steele did far more than simply conduct sordid opposition research for the Clinton campaign. By various machinations, they successfully reached the most influential people in UK and US politics, the media, and federal government agencies and shaped/influenced the narrative of the 2016 presidential elections. There is little doubt that Simpson/Jacoby and their US political/media network and Steele with his enablers in Hakluyt, the British media, and the Foreign Office successfully waged a full-scale influence operation...

Chinas AI Goddess and the East/West AI competition

Last year, Russian President Vladimir Putin said whoever leads in AI (Artificial Intelligence) will control the world.  The Chinese took these words seriously and are investing huge sums of money in an effort to create an AI Goddess.  They hope it will give them unprecedented powers and help them in their bid to form a world government, according to members of Asian secret societies.

The West, for its part, is building a quantum-based financial system they hope will allow them to continue to control the main source of world powerthe international financial system.

This battle is serious, and it even led to the Chinese supercomputer Tainhe-1at one point the worlds fastestto be blown up by unknown parties on August 12, 2015.  The fact that this explosion came immediately after a sudden unannounced 4% devaluation in the Chinese yuan was almost certainly no coincidence.  The fact that the European-headed IMF supported this move shows that the European faction of the Khazarian mafia was in on the plot.

An estimated 29,000 teachers stopped work for a full day on Wednesday, demanding a pay rise from the government of 16% over two years. The industrial action affected 400,000 children. The teachers are striking over large class sizes, low pay, a teacher shortage and excessive administration requirements.

Sinister Soros back to buying up social media again after denouncing companies and dumping shares last year "IndyWatch Feed World"

Months after denouncing social media as a "menace to society," controversial billionaire George Soros is again investing into Facebook, Twitter and streaming services Spotify and Pandora, while scaling back his Google holdings. With hedge funds filing their second-quarter statements with regulators this week, it has emerged that Soros Fund Management LLC is once again investing in Facebook. The fund has also bought shares in Twitter and the two streaming platforms, while selling off some stock in Google's parent company Alphabet Inc. and Amazon.com. News of Soros's acquisitions have raised suspicions in circles that have long seen Soros as a foe of copyrights. Facebook and Twitter stocks were rising at the time Soros made the purchases in June, though both took a dive at the end of July over disappointing earnings reports. Pandora and Spotify stocks have been a haven of stable growth in comparison.

A closer look at what the OPCW did and didn't find in Douma "IndyWatch Feed World"

1. Introduction. Why The Lack of Sarin is a Problem This article considers in detail what was and wasn't found by the OPCW (Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons) in their investigation of the Douma chemical incident of April 7. Douma is a Damascus suburb, then under Islamist opposition control but on the verge of surrender, when activists reported a helicopter attack with two chemical "barrel bombs" containing chlorine gas and perhaps something deadlier. A reported 43 civilians or more were reportedly killed, and for supposedly obvious reasons, the ruling Islamists finalized their surrender the next day. An OPCW Fact-Finding Mission (FFM) was swiftly formed and assembled in Syria by April 14, when the U.S. and allies launched missile strikes nearby. But the FFM had to wait another week before they were able to first access the attack sites on April 21. This delay was blamed on Damascus and their allies in Moscow, who were accused of buying time to scrub the crime scenes of clues. But in fact the UN's security agency UNDSS (Department of Safety and Security) was behind the small initial delay, and it was reasonable, considering the unknowns in an area ruled for six years by hard-line Islamists, and only formally liberated for a few days. The April 17 attack on the UNDSS advance security team by unidentified militants, wounding a Syrian officer, shows that the concerns the UNDSS shared with the Syrians and Russians were valid. In fact, this bad result to the rushed first try is what caused the ensuing four-day delay to re-plan the mission. [1] With the release of the OPCW's interim report on July 6, we now have some information from those visits that might contain clues of any meddling. This report will be cited heavily in the following article. [2]

Understanding the Process of Transformation "IndyWatch Feed World"

By JPK

I feel a basic knowledge of the process of transformation, regarding our personal and collective growth, needs to be brought to light, as it seems it is being lost within the chaotic distraction that is our everyday life. Now more than ever, we must remain focused in our journey and not allow ourselves to become swept up in the tornado of dis-information and propaganda set to keep us from discovering our true potential. It is time to wake up and take charge, therefore, in the interest of spreading awareness, I would like to lay out a general procedure that, when adhered to, leads to real change, both individually and collectively.

Here are my three steps to transformation (with explanations):

Step 1. STOP  recognise, take responsibility, assess

As the saying goes: If you keep doing what youve always done, then youll continue to get what youve always got!

We cannot change and stay the same, therefore, the first thing that needs to be done when we come up against discordance in our lives is to STOP! We must assess our lives and identify the areas in which we have become stuck. Recognise that the ways we have been dealing with (or ignoring) these issues is not working, for if it was, then we would not still be suffering them.

To effectively move into the next steps, we must resolve to destroy the patterns that have not worked for us in the past so that we may clear the way for the new tracks to be laid. This begins by becoming aware of them.

An important aspect to this step is in taking responsibility for our own life experience. We must cease blaming others and see that our experience is shaped from within. Only then can we move from a state of victimhood into a space where we may begin to reclaim our power as sovereign beings.

Step one takes a lot of reflection. We must constantly assess where we are operating from and the underlying emotion that is driving our actions. This can be a daunting process as it may reveal to us just how little control we have had in our life. However, it is also very powerful, as in finding where we no longer wish to be, we establish a clear direction for our steps to come.

Summary CULTIVATE AWARENESS & DECONSTRUCT OLD PATTERNS!

Step 2. HEAL  allow, acknowledge, feel, forgive, let go

The solution for the missing trillions: US gov audit standards to be "modified" under guise of 'national security' "IndyWatch Feed World"

In an apparent departure from "generally accepted accounting principles," federal agencies will be permitted to publish financial statements that are altered so as to protect information on classified spending from disclosure. The new policy was developed by the government's Federal Accounting Standards Advisory Board (FASAB) in response to concerns raised by the Department of Defense and others that a rigorous audit of agency financial statements could lead to unauthorized disclosure of classified information. In order to prevent disclosure of classified information in a public financial statement, FASAB said that agencies may amend or obscure certain spending information. "An entity may modify information required by other [accounting] standards if the effect of the modification does not change the net results of operations or net position." Agencies may also shift accounts around in a potentially misleading way. "A component reporting entity is allowed to be excluded from one reporting entity and consolidated into another reporting entity. The effect of the modifications may change the net results of operations and/or net position." See Statement of Federal Financial Accounting Standards 56, FASAB, July 5, 2018 (final draft for sponsor review).

Russian Embassy in the United Kingdom criticized UK media on Wednesday for promoting the idea of countering the alleged threat from Russia in the Arctic via a military build-up in the region. "These speculations are yet another attempt to promote the idea of military build-up in the Arctic under imaginary pretexts. They run counter to the existing international legal framework and completely undermine huge efforts undertaken in the Arctic Council, where the UK is an observer state," the embassy's spokesperson said in a statement. Earlier in the day, some UK media published excerpts of the report "On thin ice: UK defence in the Arctic" prepared by the Defence Sub-Committee of the House of Commons. Conclusions of the press report were reduced to the presence of "a serious threat to Britain from Russia on the Arctic flank" and the need to increase the capabilities of the UK army and increase defense spending.

We speak with the Marshall Project reporter about the Barry Goldwater bombing range in Arizona, a vast swath of land across the border from Nogales, Mexico. The area is part of an incredibly dangerous migrant path, but aid workers are not allowed access to the site. Frey estimates hundreds of immigrants could have died there in recent years but that their bodies have not been recovered.

Almost two-thirds of Americans have this sign of an unhealthy brain "IndyWatch Feed World"

Too much belly fat is a warning sign of an unhealthy brain, new research from over 5,000 people concludes. The more belly fat people had, the worse their brain function was, as measured by tests of memory, language and their general mental faculties. Belly fat is assessed by measuring the waist and the hips and then dividing one by the other to get a ratio. Belly fat may be particularly bad for the brain due to increased secretion of inflammatory markers. Inflammatory proteins - too many of which are bad for the body - frequently increase before people get dementia.

Nevada Democrats Hope Latinos Can Propel Them to Victory "IndyWatch Feed World"

LAS VEGAS As temperatures topped 110 degrees last week outside a Latin American grocery store in Las Vegas, 19-year-old Diara Hernandez bounded up to customers, greeting them with a smile and a clipboard to ask in Spanish if theyre registered to vote or can vote.

Hernandez, a College of Southern Nevada political science student and aspiring immigration lawyer, is part of the Democratic Partys battalion of volunteers working to register and engage Latino voters in this years midterms. Democrats hope to re-create the big wins the states Hispanic and immigrant community are credited with delivering for the party two years ago.

Backlash against President Donald Trumps tougher immigration policies may help Democrats, but the party is also running into headwinds as they try to engage communities facing fear and uncertainty.

When I go to the grocery store, Im not being asked about candidates. Im not being asked about when the election is, said Astrid Silva, one of 13,000 young immigrants in Nevada shielded from deportation by the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. Im being asked whats going to happen the next day to peoples families.

Silva, a 30-year-old woman in Las Vegas who was brought to the U.S. without authorization at age 4, said that while she feels energized by the prospects of a blue wave in November, many in her community are grappling with deportations from routine check-ins with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement and the uncertain future of DACA.

It's back-to-school time. You can now find hundreds of "back-to-school" posts with helpful tips on what to buy your kids, how to prepare them for the constant harassment, and what lies to tell them to reduce their anxiety about returning to the factory of bullying, boredom, and bull. You probably guessed it: I'm not a fan of public school. Neither are students. And guess what, neither are their teachers. While it may sound like I'm joking, I'm dead serious, and I even have the stats to prove it: A survey of 22,000 high-school students revealed that teenagers feel bored in school 70% of the time and experience stress even more often than that (80% of the time).

Meet The Worlds Largest Known Living Organism: Humongous Fungus "IndyWatch Feed World"

By Luke Miller,

When you think of the largest living thing of the planet, the blue whale is what would come to the mind of most. However, this gigantic network of mushrooms makes the blue whale look like a goldfish, giving it the perfect nickname- Humongous Fungus.

The mushroom in question is an Armillaria ostoyae. This is a species of plant fungus from the Physalacriaceae family. The mushroom is common across the western U.S.

2,385 acres In Size

This humongous piece of fungus lives in Malheur National Forest in Oregon and covers a space of almost 2,385 acres, which is close to 4 square miles, making it the largest known living organism on the planet.

Despite the friendly sounding name, this mushroom is actually far more destructive than you may think. Amarillia ostoyae is parasitic and grows by feeding off of roots of trees. This causes slow decay and eventually kills them. These mushrooms are likely to be spotted near to the base of infected or dead trees.

Underground there is a massive network of fungal roots called mycelia. Once a year during the mushroom season this network will produce mushrooms above ground. This season last around 3 months. So while this is the biggest known living organism on the planet, for 9 months of the year it is not visible...

All Governments Lie "IndyWatch Feed World"

All governments lie, said legendary journalist I.F. Stone. He relentlessly reported on the powerful and the corrupt, and for almost 20 years, until his retirement in 1971, independently wrote I.F. Stones Weekly, an acerbic and incisive publication that broke news regularly. He revealed how President Lyndon Johnson deceptively exploited the 1964 Tonkin Bay incident to escalate U.S. involvement in Vietnam. He produced some of the most impactful investigative reporting on the tobacco industry and the power it held over Congress. I.F. Stones assertion that all governments lie has stood the test of time, and seems remarkably apt now, during the era of President Donald Trump, perhaps the most prodigious liar among all U.S. presidents. When the news media accurately reports on Trumps baldfaced lies, he attacks, calling the press the enemy of the people. Members of the White House press corps, who are the principal recipients of Trumps constant pejoratives, increasingly express concern for their safety at Trumps many campaign-style rallies, where he revs up the crowd against them.

Im so proud of myself; I didnt call them the fake-news media,' Trump said Monday at Fort Drum, in upstate New York. I said to myself, I will not today, in front of our great armed forces, call them fake news. (Laughter.) We know the real truth, but we wont say it today. In bragging of his restraint, he twice labeled the media fake news. Trump will not relent, and certainly will never change.

Trump relies on the news media to repeat, and thus amplify, his hateful messages. Several news channels have taken the important step of not carrying his rallies live, from start to finish. It was that shameful practice that delivered over $1 billion in free airtime to the Trump campaign. But his tweets must be reported. A court ruled them to be official White House statements, and they actually shape policies. The depth of his racism, his misogyny, his Islamophobia and his viciousness is as newsworthy as it is grotesque. This week he called Omarosa Manigault Newman, his fired, former top African-American woman staffer, that dog. Earlier, he tweeted about an NBA basketball star who has just opened a new school: Lebron James was just interviewed by the dumbest man on television, Don Lemon. He made Lebron look smart, which isnt easy to do. Both men are African-American, as is respected Congressmember Maxine Waters, whom Trump called an extraordinarily low IQ person. He not only insults African-Americans, but all of us in the process.

The best reply to Trumps hostility to the press is more investigative reporting. One problem is that obsessive speculation about the progress of special counsel Robert Muellers investigation into Trump and Russian election meddling crowds out othe...

The two Americans killed in an ISIS-claimed attack in Tajikistan over the weekend were a couple from Washington D.C. who left their lives in the nation's capital to see the world together by bicycle. According to Lauren Geoghegan's parents, the year-long cycle adventure was typical of their daughter's "openness to new people and places, and her quest for a better understanding of the world." Robert and Elvira Geoghegan confirmed in a statement sent to CBS News that Lauren and her boyfriend Jay Austin, both 29 years old, were killed in the attack on Sunday as they rode through Tajikistan with a group of other foreign cyclists. A car rammed into the group and then five men got out and attacked the tourists with knives. A Dutch and Swiss national were killed along with Geoghegan and Austin.

Revolving Door: How Security Clearances Perpetuate Top-Level Corruption in the United States "IndyWatch Feed World"

 



What has changed is that all these folks now have their communications recorded and actively tracked.  The prime reason that these clearances have not been revoked is because all these fine chaps are been actively investigated for serious crimes.   Just because it is obvious, does not mean that we have the whole story. 

Add in the continuing provocation of the so called Mueller investigation whose sole achievement to date has been to act as a stalking horse for Clinton wrong doing and you may have a clue as to what is really happening.

The whole world now understands the depth and even the detail of corrupt practice clearly undertaken by the past administration.  All while pretending to investigate Trump.  Meanwhile we have plus 45,000 sealed indictments out there and  a massive wave of high level resignations.  Those are two completely verifiable facts that ring in the sound of a very large door slamming shut.

Even Judge Jeanine finally got the joke.  No need to cancel clearances when they will soon be arrested for high crimes and treason.  In the meantime the silence has been golden and very welcome.

Get The Champagne Out" - The Longest Bull Market Of All Time "IndyWatch Feed World"

 

 

 What was missing for most of this secular bull market was reinvestment in the USA. Most of those investment dollars were clearly going offshore not least because of Obama Administration policy initiatives and promotion of the regulatory State.  The corporations were doing fine, just elsewhere.

This also explains just how easy it was for Trump to succeed in Jaw boning the USA economy back into a robust health.  The Global economy has been expanding and will continue to do so because the whole global population is fully monetizing and accessing cell phone banking.   It is the USA which has been draggging its feet through stupid policy not unlike what has been done at times elsewhere.

Recent shakedowns on Tariffs are all about forcing open negotiations in regard to general trade.  Trump happens to be a free  trader  who understands that it takes two free traders to make it work.  The USA has been as guilty as anyone but so what.  Start a trade war so all bad behavior gets confronted..

As I posted a long time ago, the pedophilia conspiracy is the sole stable conspiracy.  For that reason it morphed into the NWO as well and all this has been sustained for generations plausibly tracking back to the seventeenth century when it was still possible to draw on older satanic lore.

What now becomes obvious is that the take down of the NWO is only a side benefit of taking down the global pedophile network. All the activity i have been reporting on is aimed first at the pedophiles.   This was a bit of a surprise at first but it is also inevitable.  Read these items just now coming in on the Q feed.

The big shock is that Google operated a clandestine network outside the USA to accommodate the Muslim brotherhood and likely drug traffickers and of course child trafficking. 

We also learn that a program is presently underway shutting down countries involved.  This is well underway although we are looking at the easy ones in which we have been engaged.  Not mentioned in this list is Pakistan and conditions there supplies feudal lords who have serfs to sell.

Q has quite suddenly brought it all up front and center.  This will be the primary cover for the coming mass arrests.  After all only a few were ever political players.  At the same time we now have had two years of visible local law enforcement action as well.  That arresting 50,000 pedophiles also guts the political class is almost unnoticed.

Mystery in the mesosphere: Noctilucent clouds TRIPLE compared to last August "IndyWatch Feed World"

This summer, something strange has been happening in the mesosphere. The mesosphere is a layer of the atmosphere so high that it almost touches space. In the rarefied air 83 km above Earth's surface, summertime wisps of water vapor wrap themselves around specks of meteor smoke. The resulting swarms of ice crystals form noctilucent clouds (NLCs), which can be seen glowing in the night sky at high latitudes. And, no, that's not the strange thing. Northern sky watchers have grown accustomed to seeing these clouds in recent years. They form in May, intensify in June, and ultimately fade in July and August. This year, however, something different happened. Instead of fading in late July, the clouds exploded with unusual luminosity. Kairo Kiitsak observed this outburst on July 26th from Simuna, Estonia: "It was a mind-blowing display," says Kiitsak. "The clouds were visible for much of the night, rippling brightly for at least 3 hours." Other observers saw similar displays in July and then, in August, the clouds persisted. During the first half of August 2018, reports of NLCs to Spaceweather.com have tripled compared to the same period in 2017. The clouds refuse to go away. Researchers at the University of Colorado may have figured out why. "There has been an unexpected surge of water vapor in the mesosphere," says Lynn Harvey of Colorado's Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics (LASP). This plot, which Harvey prepared using data from NASA's satellite-based Microwave Limb Sounder (MLS) instrument, shows that the days of late July and August 2018 have been the wettest in the mesosphere for the past 11 years:

'In the name of #Resistance': After clearance pull, Democrats rush to back Brennan - who spied on them "IndyWatch Feed World"

Democrats have been vocal in condemning US President Donald Trump for revoking former CIA chief John Brennan's security clearance, forgetting that time he spied on a Democrat-run Senate committee in the name of #Resistance. On Wednesday, Trump revoked Brennan's security clearance, which had allowed the ex-spymaster to continue to access classified documents since he resigned last January. The White House said that Brennan used his security clearance to "sow division and chaos," and lend a sheen of credibility to his public criticisms of the president. The White House looked into revoking Brennan's clearance after he accused Trump of "treason" for meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin last month. Straight away, Democrats jumped in to defend Brennan's character and to blast Trump for pulling his clearance. Rep. Adam Schiff (D-California), ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee, said that "In adding John Brennan to his enemies list, Trump demonstrates again how deeply insecure and vindictive he is."

Baker Involved in Supreme Court Case Whips Up a New Controversy "IndyWatch Feed World"

DENVER A Colorado baker who refused to make a wedding cake for a gay couple on religious grounds a stance partially upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court has sued the state over its opposition to his refusal to bake a cake celebrating a gender transition, his attorneys said Wednesday.

Jack Phillips, owner of the Masterpiece Cakeshop in suburban Denver, claimed that Colorado officials are on a crusade to crush him and force him into mediation over the gender transition cake because of his religious beliefs, according to a federal lawsuit filed Tuesday.

Phillips is seeking to overturn a Colorado Civil Rights Commission ruling that he discriminated against a transgender person by refusing to make a cake celebrating that persons transition from male to female.

His lawsuit came after the Supreme Court ruled in June that Colorados Civil Rights Commission displayed anti-religious bias when it sanctioned Phillips for refusing to make a wedding cake in 2012 for Charlie Craig and Dave Mullins, a same-sex couple.

The justices voted 7-2 that the commission violated Phillips rights under the First Amendment. But the court did not rule on the larger issue of whether businesses can invoke religious objections to refuse service to gays and lesbians.

The Alliance Defending Freedom, a conservative Christian nonprofit law firm, represented Phillips in the case and filed the new lawsuit.

Phillips operates a small, family-run bakery located in a strip mall in the southwest Denver suburb of Lakewood. He told the state civil rights commission that he can make no more than two to five custom cakes per week, depending on time constraints and consumer demand for the cakes that he sells in his store that are not for special orders.

Autumn Scardina, a Denver attorney whose practice includes family, personal injury, insurance and employment law, filed the Colorado complaint saying that Phillips refused her request for a gender transition cake in 2017.

Cardina said she asked for a cake with a pink interior and a blue exterior and told Phillips it was intended to celebrate her gender transition. She did not state in her complaint whether she asked for the cake to have a message on it.

The commission found on June 28 that Scardina was discriminated against because of her transgender status. It ordered both parties to seek a mediated solution.

Phillips sued in response, citing his belief that the status of being male or female is given by God, is biologically determined, is not determined by perceptions or feelings, and cannot be chosen or changed, according to his lawsuit.

Phillips alleges that Colorado violated his First Amendment right to practice his faith and the 14th Amendment right to equal protection,...
