"Passive Acceptance..." "IndyWatch Feed World"

He who accepts evil without protesting against it is really cooperating with it."

Why Macron has France in revolt "IndyWatch Feed World"

On November 11th, French President Emmanuel Macron commemorated the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I by inviting seventy heads of state to organize a costly, useless, grandiloquent "Forum of Peace" that did not lead to anything. He also invited US President Donald Trump, and then chose to insult him. In a pompous speech, Macron -- knowing that a few days earlier, Donald Trump had defined himself as a nationalist committed to defending America -- invoked "patriotism"; then defined it, strangely, as "the exact opposite of nationalism"; then called it "treason". Comment: The Real Problem with Nationalism, Without the Virtue Signaling In addition, shortly before the meeting, Macron had not only spoken of the "urgency" of building a European army; he also placed the United States among the "enemies" of Europe. This was not the first time Macron placed Europe above the interests of his own country. It was, however, the first time he had placed the United States on the list of...

"The Ghost Of Christmas Present" "IndyWatch Feed World"

"The Ghost Of Christmas Present"
by James Howard Kunstler

Apparently one additional world leader turned up in Buenos Aires without fanfare this weekend. The General Secretary of the North Pole, known popularly as Santa Claus, took his latest-model hypersonic sleigh to the G-20 Meeting, and made sure that the global financial elite would find their Christmas stockings stuffed with sugarplums one last time before the great reflation bull market dies of incredulity.

Something drastic was required as so many enterprises were skidding into a ditch last month, especially FAANGs, cars, house sales, and oil, while the Grand Old Man of the Dow Jones, General Electric, was singing its death song like an old Arikara chief in the prairie twilight. The US threat of 25 percent tariffs on Chinese exports was shunted ahead 90 days, giving the almighty algos and their human errand boys one last shot at looting the future.

How exactly will this change the basic equation of China sending its industrial output to WalMart in exchange for American IOUs, while the trade deficit mounts ever-higher and the last holdouts of the US middle class sink into debt, addiction, and hopelessness? It wont, of course, because Americans have to find another reason to get up in the morning besides reporting to the national demolition derby. I dont know about you, but it doesnt warm my heart to hear about x-hundred thousand housing starts every month, knowing that it represents the destruction of x-thousand acres of meadow, field, and forest, and that whats being laid down on the landscape out there is soul-crushing infrastructure with no future.

So Close, but So Far From the Land of the Free "IndyWatch Feed World"

I was in Tijuana on a Sunday in late November, moving west on the road underneath Puente El Chaparralthe bridge that crosses the Mexican side of the Tijuana Riverwhen a group of a hundred or so Central American migrants made a run for the U.S. port of entry. The group of mostly men, who had broken away from a larger protest, charged toward me and a group of Mexican police officers, weaving around us to avoid collision. This charge was their last Hail Mary attempt to make it to the United States after uprooting their lives and making the 2,000-mile journey from Central America.

But the breakaway protesters appeared to not know where they were going. They ran past the road that leads to the United States, into a dead end on Calle Jos Mara Larroque, a street just a block away from the border wall. There, a group of Mexican police officers cornered them. For a moment, I found myself in the middle of a standoff between a group desperate to make it to the land of the free, and police dressed in full riot gear, determined to stand in their way. I thought the police were going to arrest the men, but they were vastly outnumbered and the men escaped by running down an alley that led back to the main road.

To block their way, the police rolled in a 15-foot-high rusted door and formed a blockade in the middle of the street, sealing the road from the United States into Mexico. The migrants ran back to the canal adjacent to the border fence, rejoining the protesters they had broken away from. One of the protesters yelled, Estan haciendo el trabajo de Trump! Odia a los Mexicanos tambin!Youre doing Trumps work! He hates Mexicans, too!

The protesters started a scattered march along the outer edges of the canal, some waving Honduran flags, some American. One woman had a sign that said, El respeto a los derechos ajenos es la pazThe rights of foreigners means peace.

Despite their anger, despite their frustrations, I never once saw anyone being violent or destructive, or behaving as people did in the video the Trump administration shared during the midterm elections campaign. I felt completely safe.

Out of nowhere, tear gas started wafting into Tijuana. My eyes began to water, and an uncontrollable cough racked me. As soon as the gas came, I heard someone yell, No tiren piedras!Dont throw any rocks. I never saw anyone throwing rocks, but I figured that someone at some point must have provoked the Border Patrol. If it happened, it definitely wasnt something more than a few people were doing. Who knows what their motivation was?

I only caught a small whiff of tear gas. I cant imagine what it must have felt like for the men, women and children who were swallowed by the monstrous clouds down in the canal as they ran as fast as they could....

Guardian angel super PACs are one way for powerful donors to strategically direct their political funds toward specific candidates.

This cycle, many well-known, mega donors served as the guardian angels for one or more super PACs. To be considered a guardian angel, an individual must be the number one donor for that super PAC, and their giving must make up 40 percent or more of the contributions to a committee.

The Center for Responsive Politics identified 22 of these donors who gave over $200 million to these super PACs during the midterms.

Some of the guardian angels from this cycle include Sheldon and Miriam Adelson, Jeff and Mackenzie Bezos, Michael Bloomberg, Robert and Diana Mercer, George Soros, ...

For Middle- and Working-Class Americans, Running for Congress is Nearly Unaffordable "IndyWatch Feed World"

The candidate pool in the 2018 midterm elections was more diverse, female and full of first-time candidates than ever. Democrats nominated 180 women, 60 more than the previous record of 120, according to data from Rutgers University Center for American Women in Politics, Politico reports. They also nominated 133 people of color and 158 first-time candidates. But while Congress may look a little more like America in January, amid the celebrations of all these firsts is a harsher truth: Many of the midterm candidates, whether they won or lost, could barely afford to run.

The odds are stacked against less wealthy candidates before they decide to run. As Amanda Terkel explains in HuffPost, Many of the lawmakers walking the gilded halls of Congress are, financially, far better off than the constituents they represent. Millionaires comprise nearly 40 percent of Congress, compared to being just 4 percent of the U.S. population.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, representative-elect from New Yorks 14th District, has been the subject of constant media attention. She was a bartender before running and has $7,000 in her bank account, and some conservative writers accuse her of dressing too well, considering how little money she claims to have.

In other words, Terkel says, if you look nice, you could look too nice. But if you dont look nice, you might not look professional enough to seem like you should be elected.

Ocasio-Cortez is one of the lucky contenders. She had money saved, and she won her race.

Before Shawna Roberts decided to run for Congress in Ohios 6th District, she was working part-time at McDonalds. Like many Americans, she became politically active following the 2016 election, joining a local chapter of Indivisible, a progressive advocacy group. No one was challenging the incumbent Republican, Bill Johnson, so despite the district skewing heavily Republican, Roberts decided to run, just so hed have a challenger.

You have to say to yourself, Can I afford to not have cash coming in?  she told HuffPost. She and her husband had money saved up, which helped a little, but she still wasnt raising enough campaign money to take a salary to cover the cost of living for her family, which includes five children.

First jellyfish genome sequenced "IndyWatch Feed World"

This 30 November 2015 video says about itself:

Formerly Considered Single-Celled, This Parasite Is Actually A Jellyfish

Genome sequencing of myxozoans has determined that the parasitic creatures are microscopic jellyfishchallenging our definition of what an animal is.

A common aquatic parasite, long-studied for its devastating impact on commercial fishing, is essentially a microscopic jellyfish. Researchers from the University of Kansas, or KU, sequenced the genome of myxozoans and discovered the parasites are highly reduced cnidariansbelonging to the same phylum as jellyfish, sea anemones and corals.

The team also discovered that myxozoa have an extremely small genome, several orders of magnitude less complex than typical jellyfish. One thing they do have in common is their stinger.

Paulyn Cartwright, the projects principal investigator, explained, Because theyre so weird, its difficult to imagine they were jellyfish. They dont have a mouth or a gut. They have just a few cells. But then they have this complex structure that looks just like the stinging cell of cnidarian.

Originally considered single-celled organisms, myxozoa are rewriting the biological textbook. Thats because the parasites lack a certain type of gene previously believed necessary for animal development.

But Cartwright is adamant, Myxozoa is definitely an animal because its evolutionary origin is shared with jellyfish, and we use species ancestry to define them. But animals are usually defined as macroscopic multicellular organisms, and this is not that. Myxozoa absolutely redefines what we think of as animal.

You may think the person bragging about how much money his policy is giving to the Pentagon would be the last person to complain about it. Think again. Donald Trump called this defense spending hike "crazy!" Under the incumbent US president the country has made a sharp turn towards a more aggressive foreign policy. He reversed the Obama-era limitations on defense spending, pushing a multibillion hike in the military budget for FY2018 and FY2019 through Congress. Trump's administration also passed a number of key national security documents like the Nuclear Posture Review and the National Military Strategy, which stated that a confrontation with Russia and China are primary goals for the US military.

Mom Has a Dire Warning to Parents Everywhere After Scented Candle Harms Her Infant "IndyWatch Feed World"

As a parent, you will go to great lengths to try to keep your children safe, happy and healthy. However, every now and then we discover a hidden risk lurking within the walls of our own home.

Just ask New Jersey mother Meghan Budden. As a new mom, she had done her research carefully assessing any potential risks in her home in her efforts to baby proof. Were all aware of the more obvious risks, covering open electrical sockets and moving household chemicals into lockable cupboards, for example. However, she soon discovered that she was overlooking a fairly common danger that so few of us are even aware of.

While nursing young Jimmy one day, Budden discovered small black specks on the inside of her sons nose. Unsure what may have caused the specks, she cleaned his nose up, only to notice that they were back again shortly thereafter. This led her to examine all of the possible causes in her home. What did she discover? The small black marks within her sons nose were actually soot from her favorite scented candles.

Most people dont realize that scented candles are not designed for ongoing use. In fact, in looking closer at the candles packaging, Budden discovered a warning in fine print: Do not burn more than three hours at a time.

Recognizing that shes likely not the only one that was unaware of the risks associated with the use of scented candles, Budden decided to reach out to the local media in order to share her warning. Her warning was quickly picked up by other members of the media, going viral across the country.

The black marks that Budden discovered were actually soot, which is released into the air from prolonged burning. This is one of the reasons why experts recommend trimming the wick of the candle before every use. This will reduce the amount of the burned wick that is present, cutting back on the soot being released into the air, while also avoiding dripping and uneven burning.

Soot from the wick may not be the only risk to your air quality, however....

Your Most Important Purpose In This Life, According to Your Birthstone "IndyWatch Feed World"

There are some traditions that are shared, not only across the country but worldwide. These are concepts that hold meaning generation after generation, uniting us whether we understand their history or not.

One such concept, recognized by people around the world, is that of birthstones. Today, many Americans believe that the use of birthstones is nothing more than a creation of the jewelry industry, pushing us to spend more on their products. However, these stones and their correlation to our lives may actually have a rich history.

There are many legends about the discovery of the birthstones and how they may impact our lives. Some say that they provide a deeper understanding of our true selves, reaching deep down into our personality past any masks we may be wearing, free from societys influence. Others, however, believe that they may have some therapeutic influence in our lives, able to provide us with healing, peace and an improved sense of well-being. Either way, they are deeply connected to our lives and worth of our attention.

One of the most accepted theories relating to the existence of the birthstones dates back to the Bible, specifically to the breastplate of Aaron in Exodus 28:15-21. In this passage, a total of 12 different gemstones are described, each connected with one of the tribes of Israel. While the original stones listed in the Hebrew Bible dont line up with the stones that we recognized today, different gems were then listed in the King James Version. However, many specialists believe that this isnt actually a change of information, but rather the evolution of language, with various names still referring to the same stones. Since that time, these stones have each been associated with a different month of the year, their influence deeply connected with those who are born during that month.

What does your birthstone reveal about your deepest desires in life? Read on to discover

January: Garnet

While those born in the month of January may not be the most extroverted or opinionated people around, dont underestimate how far they will go for those that they love. They are incredibly loyal, and when put in a position that they need to defend loved ones, they will tap into an incredible faith and courage. They arent sappy in their expression of love, steering clear of cheesy and over the top romantic gestures, but if you watch closely, they demonstrate a very practical and meaningful care on an ongoing basis.

New Jersey had a system to detect and stop dangerous cops for 17 years but completely failed to do it "IndyWatch Feed World"

Behind every baton blow and broken bone, every compliance hold and gunshot wound, there are piles and piles of paper. Somebody had to be keeping tabs, right? Almost two decades ago, the state Attorney General's Office ordered police officers in New Jersey to document every single time they used force against another person. The goal was to make sure nobody with a badge abused the greatest authority granted them. The timing was no accident: The state was reeling from one embarrassing episode after another of racial profiling and controversial shootings. The public was losing faith. In response, state authorities could show they were keeping watch, creating an encyclopedia of the most mundane and most violent arrests. The documents would be reviewed by superior officers, and annual reports would be sent to county prosecutors and the attorney general.

Wall Street rule for the #MeToo era: Avoid women at all cost "IndyWatch Feed World"

No more dinners with female colleagues. Don't sit next to them on flights. Book hotel rooms on different floors. Avoid one-on-one meetings. In fact, as a wealth adviser put it, just hiring a woman these days is "an unknown risk." What if she took something he said the wrong way? Across Wall Street, men are adopting controversial strategies for the #MeToo era and, in the process, making life even harder for women. Comment: This is a natural result of the feminist ideology that currently is spreading throughout Western culture. By making men into your enemy, they responded by protecting themselves. Feminism has turned women into a risk in the business world. If feminism wanted to increase equality at the workplace, it's going about it the wrong way. Call it the Pence Effect, after U.S. Vice President Mike Pence, who has said he avoids dining alone with any woman other than his wife. In finance, the overarching impact can be, in essence, gender segregation.

First Mental Health Clinic Inside of a Walmart Opens In Texas "IndyWatch Feed World"

In modern times, American citizens consider Walmart a one-stop shop, where we can purchase groceries, clothing, cell-phones, and even gas, but their newest addition may make you scratch your head in disbelief.

The space within this Walmart is being rented by Beacon Health Options who announced the opening of this location just earlier this week. Because the location itself is so populated and convenient the company thought it would be the perfect spot for their new clinic.

People can walk in, call, or make appointments online to get themselves checked out at this clinic. Russell C. Petrella President of BHO said that this initiative was important in making sure they were able to make quality care more accessible to the people. They are even open during evening hours as an attempt to make them more flexible to the schedules of their patients. Considering how prevalent mental health issues are in this day and age, this kind of thing could be

LEX 18 a local new station to the area reported as follows in regards to this clinic:

Organizers said the on-site clinician will perform an assessment, determine what services a person might need and put together a treatment plan. If a patient cant get to the clinic, Beacon offers Skype sessions. The companys in-store providers dont write prescriptions so if medication is needed, they can refer a patient to a psychiatrist.

The clinic inside the Walmart is not for people with serious mental health problems, but rather those who are still functioning well and need some help for common issues, Petrella said. Talk therapy can be offered on site.

The first assessment costs $140, then $110 per individual session. Beacon offers a sliding fee scale for people who dont have health insurance or cant afford the fees.

The company said it has seen interest from more than 500 people since the practice opened.

This brings mental health services to people in communities that may otherwise not have access to such health care. In addition to this location, BHO also said in their release that they are planning to expand things further.

One of the only downsides to something like this is that there could possibly be people who...

Drinking Wine Could Be the Secret to Living Over 90 Years "IndyWatch Feed World"

With the Christmas season upon us, its time to enjoy a glass of your favorite wine over dinner with friends, family and loved ones. What you may not realize, however, is that glass of wine could be contributing to your overall longevity!

A team of researchers out of the University of California Irvines Institute for Memory Impairments and Neurological Disorders revealed the results of a well-known study commonly referred to as the 90+ Study. In an effort to better understand what lifestyle habits may contribute to or hinder our longevity, the team set out to study a long list of habits and lifestyle choices, assessing the impact that each may have on our overall health and well-being. In doing so, they are able to predict whether these choices may add years to our lives or rob us of valuable time on this planet.

The participants of this study were all participants of a former study called the Leisure World Cohort Study (LWCS) which began in 1981. The LWCS included a total of 13,979 residents of a retirement community in southern California called Leisure World Laguna Hills. Data was collected on the residences between 1981 and 1998 through mailed health surveys, death certificate, hospital records and more. This helped to establish a better understanding of the overall health of the residents, and what struggles they were more likely to face during the aging process.

The researchers in the 90+ Study then connected with 14,000 of the LWCS participants, visiting with them every 6 months for a thorough examination including neurological and neuropsychological testing. They also collected information about their activities, diet, medications, and medical history. By compiling all of this information, they were then able to assess the data and identify patterns. What factors appeared to improve longevity? What habits were closely associated with a decline in overall health and wellness including the development of dementia, Alzheimers, and other illnesses?

The study concluded that those who consume a moderate amount of alcohol actually live longer than those who abstain from it altogether. The specification that it must be a moderate amount is important, as we live in a society that encourages excessive consumption in many situations. In fact, a recent report highlights alcohol abuse as contributing to the overall decline in U.S. life expectancy. So, enjoy a glass of wine with dinner but dont overindulge!

While these studies discuss alcohol in general, research shows that not all alcohol is created equally when it comes to health benefits....

New Smart Dress Records The Number of Times the Wearer is Groped "IndyWatch Feed World"

Every 98 seconds an American is sexually assaulted, highlighting the incredibly high prevalence of this problem in our country today. However, many victims will never receive the punishment that they deserve as the system continues to fail the victims.

While we have taken great steps towards true equality in our society today, there are a number of concerns that still require our attention. Among these, the gender pay gap and, a topic that has recently been in the spotlight, the prevalence of sexual assault and harassment.

Recently we have seen a significant shift among celebrities. Encouraged by the #MeToo movement, victims are being encouraged to stand up and report any examples of sexual harassment. While we are seeing more women showing incredible strength and sharing their experiences, many will argue that our legal system will ultimately fail most victims. Why? The incredibly high prevalence of victim shaming and disbelief has created a culture where it is easier to blame the woman than her attacker.

Look, for example, at the outrage currently surrounding a trial in Ireland. The defense lawyer presented the 17-year-old victims thong in court, arguing that the young womans choice of underwear was proof that she was actually welcoming the defendants advances. The case has sparked a number of protests as well as the inspired the popular hashtag #ThisIsNotConsent, which was used by Twitter users around the globe to share photos of their own underwear in solidarity.

A new technological advance, however, may provide women with the evidence that they need to prove sexual harassment before even allowing it to progress to something more. The result of a partnership between the ad agency Ogilvy Sao Paulo and the beverage company Schweppes, the new smart dress contains sensors that record every time that a woman is touched.

The developers arranged an experiment, using the dress to highlight the problems faced by women across the country on a normal night out. They asked 3 separate women each to wear the dress before attending a party. Each time one of the women was touched, the dress would send a signal through Wi-Fi.

Mokbel, who was jailed for 22 years in 2012 for drug trafficking, is among those who could be making a bid for freedom following revelations their lawyer was passing information on to Victoria police between 2005 and 2009, in breach of client confidentiality. Victoria police and the lawyer involved have been trying for three years to prevent the disclosure of the informant's identity to their underworld clients, with police arguing in court that if the information were disclosed "the risk of death [to the lawyer] would...

After bashing China non-stop, Trump makes nice with Xi at G20 "IndyWatch Feed World"

Flames of bromance were stoked at the Argentina G20 summit, with President Trump boasting of a newfound friendship with Chinese presidentt Xi Jinping. To US intelligence agencies though, the friendship could be dangerous. "My meeting in Argentina with President Xi of China was an extraordinary one," Trump tweeted on Monday. "Relations with China have taken a BIG leap forward! Very good things will happen."Trump then called his relationship with Xi "very strong and personal," and described the dynamic duo as the only two people who can fix US-China relations, find a solution in North Korea, and (presumably) bring about world peace. Whereas both nations had been locked into a trade war for much of the year, Trump and Xi agreed over the weekend to suspend new tariffs and re-enter talks. In addition, the US said that China will buy a "very substantial" amount of US products to ease the trade imbalance, and will clamp down on the export of Fentanyl - the deadly synthetic opioid...

Trump: Cohen should serve a 'full and complete' sentence for 'terrible' crimes "IndyWatch Feed World"

US President Donald Trump has called for his former attorney Michael Cohen to be jailed after he pleaded guilty to lying to Congress about a potential real estate deal in Moscow, tweeting that the lawyer "makes up stories." Trump tweeted in response to news that Cohen's legal team had asked a judge for no prison time, citing his cooperation with multiple ongoing investigations, including special counsel Robert Mueller's probe into alleged collusion between Trump and Russian officials in 2016. In the tweet, Trump asked why Cohen was allowed to get away with "terrible" things "having to do with fraud, big loans, Taxis, etc." - a reference to Cohen's legal trouble around a tax evasion case involving a New York taxi business - without serving a prison sentence.

Federal Gov't responds to The Lawyers' Committee for 9/11 Inquiry - Takes steps to prosecute use of explosives to destroy WTCs "IndyWatch Feed World"

A team of lawyers has successfully petitioned the federal government, by presenting them with evidence indicating that explosives were used to bring down the World Trade Centers. In what can be described as a monumental step forward in the relentless pursuit of 9/11 truth, a United States Attorney has agreed to comply with federal law requiring submission to a Special Grand Jury of evidence that explosives were used to bring down the World Trade Centers. The Lawyers' Committee for 9/11 Inquiry successfully submitted a petition to the federal government demanding that the U.S. Attorney present to a Special Grand Jury extensive evidence of yet-to-be-prosecuted federal crimes relating to the destruction of three World Trade Center Towers on 9/11 (WTC1, WTC2 and WTC7). After waiting months for the reply, the U.S. Attorney responded in a letter, noting that they will comply with the law.

Scotland's worst ever salmon season blamed on extreme weather "IndyWatch Feed World"

Global warming is being blamed for Scotland's worst salmon season in living memory. Some beats on famous rivers like the Spey and the Nith recorded not a single salmon caught during the entire season. Just two salmon were caught on the River Fyne in Argyll this year, where once more than 700 were caught each season. The number of fish caught by anglers has been so low that some estates have stopped selling permits for once-popular beats because there is no fish to catch. Tourism has been hit, sales of salmon tackle have slumped and ghillies have lost their jobs. Experts believe rising temperatures blamed on global warming have badly hit the salmon's feeding grounds with related changes in current patterns also affecting their migration. Comment: What rising temperatures?? Spring weather in Scotland set to be coldest for 39 years as more snow expected to hit

BEST OF THE WEB: Fake News outlet The Guardian ups its vilification of Julian Assange "IndyWatch Feed World"

It is welcome that finally there has been a little pushback, including from leading journalists, to the Guardian's long-running vilification of Julian Assange, the founder of Wikileaks. Reporter Luke Harding's latest article, claiming that Donald Trump's disgraced former campaign manager Paul Manafort secretly visited Assange in Ecuador's embassy in London on three occasions, is so full of holes that even hardened opponents of Assange in the corporate media are struggling to stand by it. Faced with the backlash, the Guardian quickly - and very quietly - rowed back its initial certainty that its story was based on verified facts. Instead, it amended the text, without acknowledging it had done so, to attribute the claims to unnamed, and uncheckable, "sources". The propaganda function of the piece is patent. It is intended to provide evidence for long-standing allegations that Assange conspired with Trump, and Trump's supposed backers in the Kremlin, to damage Hillary Clinton during...

Trump describes his own defense spending as 'crazy', wants talks with Putin and Xi to halt 'uncontrollable arms race' (the US started) "IndyWatch Feed World"

U.S. President Donald Trump says he is certain that "at some time in the future" he, Chinese President Xi Jinping, and Russian President Vladimir Putin "will start talking about a meaningful halt to what has become a major and uncontrollable Arms Race." Trump made the remark on Twitter on December 3 after holding talks with Xi and a brief discussion with Putin during a G20 summit in Buenos Aires late last week. Trump added that the United States spent $716 billion this year, suggesting that was the amount it had spent on weapons or the military, and adding, "Crazy!" The tweet came amid tension between Washington and Moscow over Trump's announcement in October that the United States will withdraw from the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty. The bilateral 1987 pact prohibits Russia and the United States from producing, possessing, and deploying ground-launched ballistic and cruise missiles with a range of 500 to 5,500 kilometers.

NAFTA 2.0 has been signed, but it is far from being finished "IndyWatch Feed World"

Friday's signing starts the clock on what could be a months-long process to approve the deal in Congress. North American leaders formally signed their new trade agreement Friday, marking the end of 15 months of contentious talks between the U.S., Canada and Mexico - and the beginning of what could be months of fierce debate between the Trump administration and Congress. The signing, which took place on the sidelines of the G-20 summit, shifts the onus onto each country's legislatures to approve the agreement before it can actually take effect. And that could be a problem in the U.S., where some Democrats have already been opposing the labor and environmental provisions in the pact, now known as the U.S.-Mexico-Canada agreement or USMCA. Despite a push by a handful of Republican senators to vote on the agreement during the lame-duck session, procedural hurdles make it almost certain there won't be a vote until sometime next year when Democrats are controlling the House.

Full stop," Brad Smith said Saturday during a panel at the Reagan National Defense Forum at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley. Smith acknowledged that "there is some angst" in some workforces, including Microsoft's, about tech companies' involvement in military contracts. In June, after thousands of employees voiced objections to a contract that allowed the military to use Google's artificial intelligence tools to analyze drone footage, Google decided not to renew the contract.

Joe DiGenova denounces the "pathetic state" of Robert Mueller's investigation into Russia interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election. The former U.S. attorney called Mueller's handling an "embarrassment" and said there is "absolutely no evidence" in any of the cases he has brought. DiGenova told FOX News host Laura Ingraham: "He's charging people with lying so that he can say in his report I would have proved collusion but all these people lied and prevented me from doing it. This is the new narrative of Mueller. He's not of course mouthing it, but his actions prove conclusively that his new narrative is if these people hadn't lied to me, I would have been able to prove collusion. This is the new Russian collusion theme now. This is what he's going to do. That's going to be what the report is going to be about.

What's the fuss over Cohen? Lying to Congress is a standard American pastime "IndyWatch Feed World"

The media wants blood after Donald Trump's former attorney, Michael Cohen, pled guilty to making false statements to Congress. Apparently, only intelligence agencies can lie to Congress and get away with it. Cohen acknowledged last week that inquiries about the possibility of constructing a Trump Tower in Moscow had lasted until June 2016 - even though Trump insisted throughout his presidential campaign that he had no active business interests in Russia. His admission has left media outlets frothing at the mouth, but how extraordinary is Cohen's alleged fib? The former director of national intelligence, James Clapper, knowingly misled the Senate about the NSA's warrantless domestic surveillance program - a rather consequential lie - and has emerged as an unscathed #Resistance hero. As it turns out, there are numerous examples of intelligence officials lying to or misleading the American public and Congress.

Qatar said its surprise decision was not driven by politics but in an apparent swipe at Riyadh, Minister of State for Energy Affairs Saad al-Kaabi said: "We are not saying we are going to get out of the oil business but it is controlled by an organization managed by a country."

S. Korea's President Moon: Trump ready to 'make what Kim wants come true' if North Korea denuclearizes "IndyWatch Feed World"

In the latest episode of the political romance between Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un, the American president said he is ready to fully grant the North Korean leader's wishes if he sticks to the denuclearizes of his country. Donald Trump asked South Korean President Moon Jae-in to relay the message during the G20 summit in Argentina, Moon told reporters after departing from the country. Trump noted that he has "a very friendly view of Chairman Kim and that he likes him," the South Korean leader said, as quoted by Yonhap News Agency. The US president "wishes Chairman Kim would implement the rest of their agreement and that he would make what Chairman Kim wants come true," Moon said. Trump and Kim held a milestone meeting in Singapore in June, where the latter agreed to give up nuclear weapons in exchange for unparalleled security guarantees for North Korea.

'Proven veterans': As DoD signals retreat, private mercenaries to take over the US-Afghan war "IndyWatch Feed World"

As the US urgently seeks an exit from its ongoing 17-year war in Afghanistan - the longest war the nation has prosecuted in its 242-year history - for-profit, privately-held mercenary corporations are increasingly taking over, leading officials in Kabul to question their expensive and often deadly presence. In 2001, the US invaded Afghanistan, quickly contributing to a boom in the so-called 'private security' business, a euphemism to describe the use of mercenary soldiers, according to reports. Although the US is making moves toward giving up its 17-year Afghanistan war - a fight described last month by the US Joint Chiefs of Staff chairman, General Joseph Dunford, as a "stalemate" - widespread instability in Afghanistan remains, and there is a high demand for armed soldiers to guard foreign business operations, national embassies and even military bases, according to the BBC.

Miami: A case study of birthright citizenship abuse "IndyWatch Feed World"

President Trump once again questioned the interpretation of the 14th Amendment, the constitutional amendment that established birthright citizenship. The amendment was written to protect the children of newly freed slaves so that their citizenship, personhood, and freedom could not be challenged. However, a loose interpretation over the years has allowed any person, including a child of illegal immigrants, to obtain citizenship if they are born in the United States. While legal questions remain (as the Supreme Court has never ruled on birthright citizenship with regards to a child of illegal immigrants, which is central to Trump's challenge of its current interpretation), thousands of illegal immigrants have taken advantage of birthright citizenship by either traveling to the U.S. while pregnant or having a child while illegal. Both are attempts to abuse current law to create an entryway into the country for individuals who otherwise could not obtain permanent legal status. These...

This 27 February 2018 video says about itself:

Galpagos Tortoise Movement Ecology Programme

The film captures the hidden mystery of the lives of giant tortoises, among the longest lived vertebrates on earth. It illustrates the diverse ecological roles played by Galpagos tortoises and how the environment has shaped complex yet predictable patterns on movement, morphology and ecological relationships among tortoises across the Galpagos Archipelago.

It demonstrates how a team of conservation biologists developed and implemented a research programme that revealed the hitherto unknown secret lives of Galpagos tortoises one of the earths most iconic wildlife species. It documents the movement ecology of tortoises, their feeding ecology, their role as ecosystem engineers, and their pivotal role in ecosystems.

Touching on their conservation history from the time humans discovered the islands, and how humans will determine the fate of tortoises and their habitats. It demonstrates how scientific research can inform conservation management, and highlight the importance of pure and applied research toward understanding and conserving the tortoises and the ecosystems they shape.

The Yellow Vest Movement in France : Between "Ecological" Neoliberalism and "Apolitical" Movements "IndyWatch Feed World"

The past weeks have seen a massive confrontational movement arise in France opposing President Emmanuel Macrons ecological tax increase on gas. This movement combines many contradictory elements: horizontally organized direct action, a narrative of being apolitical, the participation of far-right organizers, and the genuine anger of the exploited. Clearly, neoliberal capitalism offers no solutions to climate change except to place even more pressure on the poor; but when the anger of the poor is translated into reactionary consumer outrage, that opens ominous opportunities for the far right. Here, we report on the yellow vest movement in detail and discuss the questions it raises.

A las barricadas: the yellow vest movement has provided a venue for people to revolt without giving up their identity as consumers.

Preface: The Ruling Center and the Rebel Right

In the buildup to the 2018 elections in the US, we heard a lot of arguments that it would be better for centrist politicians to win control of the government. But what happens when centrists come to power and use their authority to stabilize capitalism at the expense of the poor? One consequence is that far-right nationalists gain the opportunity to present themselves as rebels who are trying to protect ordinary people from the oppressive machinations of the government. In a time when the state can do precious little to mitigate the suffering that capitalism is causing, it can be more advantageous to be positioned outside the halls of power. Consequently, far-right nationalism may be able to gain more ground under centrist governments than under far-right governments.

In attempting to associate environmentalism, feminism, internationalism, and anti-racism with neoliberalism, centrists make it likely that at least some of the movements that arise against the ruling order will be anti-ecological, misogynistic, nationalistic, and racist. That works out well for centrists, because it enables them to present themselves to the world as the only possible alternative to far-right extremists. This is precisely the strategy that got Macron elected in his campaign against Marine Le Pen. In this regard, centri...

George H.W. Bush died on the eve of World AIDS Day, an irony not lost on many HIV/AIDS activists who remember the 41st president of the United States for his lack of action in the 1990s as the HIV/AIDS crisis raged on.

Bush said little about the crisis during his years as vice president under Ronald Reagan, who didnt even mention AIDS until the penultimate year of his presidency. Despite promises to do more after he was elected president, George H.W. Bush refused to address and fund programs around HIV/AIDS education and prevention, as well as drug treatment.

Hezbollah considers the US administration's sanctions on the group to be an ineffective power play.

The city said in a statement the sports complex shelter was closed because of "bad sanitary conditions." Experts had expressed concerns about unsanitary conditions that had developed at the partly flooded sports complex, where the migrants had been packed into a space adequate for half their numbers. Mud, lice infestations and respiratory infections were rampant. The remaining migrants were taken by bus to the new shelter about 10 miles from the border crossing at Otay Mesa and 14 miles from San Ysidro, near where people line up to file applications for asylum in the United States.

Italy: 60% of 'retired' migrants receive pensions without working a single day "IndyWatch Feed World"

An astonishing report by newspaper Il Giornale says that 60% of immigrants in Italy have retired having never worked. Out of 96,000 non-EU citizens who receive a pension from Istituto Nazionale della Previdenza Sociale (INPS), 60,000 have never worked and therefore never paid in any contributions or taxes. There are roughly two million foreigners enrolled with Italy's social security agency in total. The number of employed, contributing towards their pensions is only 1,700,000. This means 60 per cent of immigrants in Italy have never worked and are having their pensions paid for by the Italian taxpayer. The INPS figures show that in 2017 96,743 pensions were paid to non-EU citizens. Of these, 60,000 receive a pension that is not covered by previously paid contributions. The majority of the migrants living off the Italian taxpayer for retirement appears to be older family members allowed to migrate through chain migration "reunited with immigrants" Il Giornale reports.

Indonesia Launches Snitch App Targeting Religious Minorities "IndyWatch Feed World"

(HRW) Following your own religious beliefs shouldnt be a crime, but in Indonesia, new technologies are helping authorities identify and potentially prosecute religious minorities who follow deviant teachings.

On November 22, Bakor Pakem, a body charged with religious oversight in the Indonesia Attorney Generals office, launched an app that allows mobile device users to report individuals suspected of religious heresy.

The app, Smart Pakem, available in the Google Play store, is an extension of an official website and hotline service. They were all set up by Bakor Pakem ostensibly to protect Indonesias six officially recognized religions Islam, Protestantism, Catholicism, Hinduism, Buddhism, and Confucianism and facilitate prosecutions under the blasphemy law.

The app lists several religious groups, including the Ahmadiyah, Shia, and Gafatar, names their leaders and Indonesian office addresses, and describes their deviant teachings. It risks inflaming tensions and increasing the potential for Islamists to abuse Indonesias increasingly besieged religious minorities.

Human Rights Watch has long documented the role of government officials and Islamist militant groups in cases of intimidation, humiliation, violence, and arbitrary detention of religious minorities.

Bakor Pakem was created in 1952 under Indonesias Ministry of Religious Affairs and moved to the Attorney Generals Office in 2004. Its main goal is to enforce the 1965 blasphemy law and it has branches in every province and regency under public prosecutors offices.

Over the last five decades, Bakor Pakem has been instrumental in banning more than 30 religions, ranging from indigenous faiths like the Agama Djawa Sunda in 1964 to global religions like the Jehovahs Witness in 1976. In 2016, the office was instrumental in charging Jakarta Governor Basuki Ahok Purnama...

It is a growing trend that started in Oregon in the US, and has been embraced by celebrities such as Khloe Kardashian. Donna McCheyne, who has been teaching goat yoga classes on a farm in Devon for the past two years, believes the appeal lies in the calming effects the animals have on participants and the laughter their antics inspire.

Russia completes trials of new 'Penicillin' anti-artillery system - can pinpoint mortar origin coordinates in seconds without radar "IndyWatch Feed World"

Russia has completed trials of its new system, which swiftly detects enemy mortar and artillery fire and provides targeting information for counter-fire. Unlike Western counterparts, it does not use radar to do the job. The development of the 1B75 Penicillin was first revealed last year. It's a counter-artillery system similar in purpose to the US AN/TPQ-37 Firefinder. The system detects enemy mortar and artillery fire and pinpoints origin of the shells, allowing troops to retaliate with deadly precision. What makes the Russian product stand out is that it does not use radar to track the projectiles and instead relies on other signals.

"Obvious": Czech spy agency blames Russia for cyberattacks on foreign ministry "IndyWatch Feed World"

A Czech spy agency has said it is "obvious" that Russia was behind two recent cyberattack campaigns against the Czech Foreign Ministry and Czech diplomats.

It says 150 e-mail accounts were hacked in an attack by the Russian state that began in early 2016 and was not discovered until 2017. It also says a separate Russian cyberattack began in December 2016.

Loophole in Bernie Sanders Yemen Bill Actually Allows Continued US Involvement in Yemen "IndyWatch Feed World"

WASHINGTON Last week, many celebrated the advancement of Senate Joint Resolution (SJR) 54, which had been introduced by Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT), as a sign that the U.S. Congress was finally willing to act to reduce the U.S. culpability for the situation in Yemen, currently the worlds worst humanitarian crisis.

The bill, which will be voted on by the Senate this week, has been praised by many within the anti-war movement for its bid to end U.S. military involvement in Yemen. Passage of the bill would, however, do no such thing.

German FM rejects calls to cancel Nord Stream 2 to punish Russia for Kerch - doing so would actually hurt Ukraine "IndyWatch Feed World"

Germany's foreign minister on Monday warned against pulling out of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline with Russia, as some lawmakers suggested using the project to punish Moscow for its seizure of Ukrainian ships and their crew off the coast of Crimea. Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer, a candidate to replace Chancellor Angela Merkel at the helm of her Christian Democrat party, said on Sunday one option might be to reduce the amount of gas that will flow through the pipeline from Russia to Germany under the Baltic Sea. However, Foreign minister Heiko Maas, a member of the Social Democratic junior partners in Merkel's coalition, told reporters the $11-billion pipeline, led by Russia's Gazprom, was a commercial project that would continue, even if German firms pulled out. Withdrawing political support would diminish Berlin's ability to pressure for some gas supplies to continue to be sent to Europe via Ukraine, he said.

How To Re-Parent Your Broken Inner Child "IndyWatch Feed World"

By Aletheia Luna via Loner Wolf

Its never too late to have a happy childhood.

I stood staring at the crumpled, wind-battered flyer on the noticeboard.  Something had stopped me in that moment, something had driven me to contemplate those words, chewing on them slowly in my mind.

Its never too late to have a happy childhood

I sat down from afar, staring from my solitary bench at the baby blue and sunflower yellow words, the cliche associations of flower-power, group hugs and fairy-cherubs bombarding my thoughts.  Certainly, the notions associated with healing your inner child are not always universally appealing, but in that moment I instinctively knew that there was some deeper truth and value there, something powerfully healing.

And so began my quest to re-parent myself, my journey to reconnect to that lost and lonely inner child.

If you are interested in creating more wholeness and happiness in your life, keep reading what I discovered.

What Was Your Childhood Like?

A simple enough question, and something we all have a unique answer for.  While some of us had supportive, loving and open-minded upbringings, others of us experienced neglect to varying degrees.

Back to the present: Court rejects delusional Dutch man's request to legally change his age "IndyWatch Feed World"

The 69-year-old Dutch motivational speaker who fought to legally change his age so that he might fare better in the dating scene has had his case rejected by a court in the Netherlands. Self-proclaimed 'positivity coach' Emile Ratelband was frustrated by his lack of luck with the ladies in online dating, something which he attributed to his age. Thus began the legal case which garnered worldwide media attention and perhaps a few wry smiles at how audacious Ratelband's claim was; namely that he 'felt' 20 years younger and should therefore be allowed to legally change his age. "I say it's comparable because it has to do with my feeling, with respect about who I think ... I am, my identity," Rateband said. He argued that his appeal was in keeping with recent progressive policies and laws in which personal transformation and identification is afforded more freedom than ever before, including but not limited to, changing one's name or gender identity.

Tony Robbins Enters the Fight to Rescue Children Being Trafficked as Sex Slaves "IndyWatch Feed World"

Vic Bishop, Staff Writer
Waking Times

Some things in our world are so terrible that no one wants to talk about them, much less try to do anything about them. Nearing the top of this list is international child trafficking, and shockingly, millions of children are sold into slavery each year, with many of them being used for sexual exploitation.

People dont realize it, but there is more slavery in the world today than at any other time in human history. And while law enforcement agencies do play a major role in stopping this type of crime, very few people have the skills, courage and experience to take on the mission of rescuing children whove been stolen for sex slavery.

The Global Slavery Index 2018 estimates that on any given day in 2016 there were 403,000 people living in conditions of modern slavery in the United States, a prevalence of 1.3 victims of modern slavery for every thousand in the country. [Source]

This is What Sand Magnified Up to 300x Looks Like [Photos] "IndyWatch Feed World"

By Amanda Froelich

To see a world in a grain of sand,

And heaven in a wild flower,

Hold infinity in the palm of your hand,

and eternity in an hour.

William Blake

When Blake scribed this poem, he likely knew that because everything is connected, it is a reflection of everything else. Therefore, you can see the beauty of heaven in a wildflower, as well as in a tiny grain of sand. If you seek additional evidence, look to Dr. Gary Greenbergs work.

Greenberg is a fascinating individual. Until the age of 33, he worked as a photographer and filmmaker. But then, he moved from LA to London and earned a Ph.D. in biomedical research. His curiosity for the natural world and his background in photography led him to develop the high-definition 3D microscope. As a result, he now has 18 patents under his name.

With the invention, Greenberg can photograph grains of sand up to 300x magnification. The photographs reveal that even minute aspects of Creation are beautiful. Just perhaps, Blake was onto something

Merkel warns no military solution to Ukraine conflict "IndyWatch Feed World"

German Chancellor Angela Merkel said Thursday there is no military solution to the Ukraine conflict after President Petro Poroshenko asked for NATO naval support in his countrys standoff with Russia.

Blaming Russia for the tensions, Merkel said: We ask the Ukrainian side too to be sensible because we know that we can only solve things through being reasonable and through dialogue because there is no military solution to these disputes.

Russia fired on and then seized three Ukrainian ships on Sunday, accusing them of illegally entering its waters in the Sea of Azov and detaining their crew, in a dramatic spike in tensions that raises fears of a wider escalation.

Kiev accused Russia, which annexed the Crimea peninsula from Ukraine in 
2014, of launching a new phase of aggression.

Poroshenko asked Germany and other NATO countries in comments to Bild 
newspaper on Thursday to relocate naval ships to the Sea of Azov in order to 
assist Ukraine and provide security.

SEE ALSO: Ukrainian president calls on Germany for help in growing conflict

Ukraine is not a NATO member but has established close ties with the US-led 
military alliance, especially since the 2014 Crimea annexation.

Merkel, speaking at a German-Ukrainian business forum, said she would 
discuss the conflict with Russian President Vladimir Putin at a G20 summit in 
Argentina this weekend.

She said a bridge from the Russian mainland to Crimea that Putin opened in  May had already restricted shipping access to the Sea of Azov and therefore to the Ukrainian port of Mariupol.

The full blame for this goes to the Russian president, she said.

Now what I want is that the facts of what happened are put on the table, 
that the (crew) are released, and that no confessions are coerced like we have 
seen on television.

I would also support keeping things calm, but we must also ensure that a city like Mariupol that relies on access to the sea is not simply cut off so that large parts of Ukraine can no longer be easily reached.

U.N. Chief Issues Dramatic Climate Appeal to World Leaders "IndyWatch Feed World"

KATOWICE, Poland U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres opened the climate summit in Poland by issuing a dramatic appeal to world leaders Monday to take seriously the threat of global warming and act boldly to avert a catastrophic rise in temperatures before the end of the century.

Guterres named climate change as the most important issue we face.

Even as we witness devastating climate impacts causing havoc across the world, we are still not doing enough, nor moving fast enough, to prevent irreversible and catastrophic climate disruption, Guterres told representatives from almost 200 countries gathered in Katowice, Poland.

The U.N. chief chided countries, particularly those most responsible for greenhouse gas emissions, for failing to do enough to meet the goals of the Paris climate accord. The 2015 agreement set a goal of keeping global warming well below 2 degrees Celsius (3.6 Fahrenheit), ideally 1.5 C (2.7 F) by the end of the century.

Citing a recent scientific report on the dire consequences of letting average global temperatures rise beyond 1.5 degrees, Guterres urged countries to cut their emissions by 45 per cent from 2010 levels by 2030 and aim for net zero emissions by 2050.

Such a move, which experts say is the only way to achieve the 1.5-degree goal, would require a radical overhaul of the global economy.

In short, we need a complete transformation of our global energy economy, as well as how we manage land and forest resources, Guterres said.

He said governments should embrace the opportunities rather than cling to fossil fuels such as coal, which are blamed for a significant share of man-made greenhouse gas emissions.

In order to steer businesses and consumers away from heavily polluting forms of energy, he urged countries to embrace carbon pricing, something few countries have yet to do.

Guterres also called on negotiators not to lose sight of the fact that the challenges they face pale in comparison to the difficulties already caused by climate change to millions of people around the world seeing their livelihoods at risk from rising sea levels, drought and more powerful storms.

The two-week conference, in Polands southern coal mining region of Silesia, is expected to work out how governments can report on their efforts to reduce green gas emission and keep global warming within the Paris accord limit.

This is the challenge on which this generations leaders will be judged, Guterres said.

Host Poland proposed a declaration for a just transition away from coal mining, the supplier of its main source of energy, which calls for winning social acceptance for the necessary changes.

Beloved Yellowstone Wolf, Spitfire, Shot and Killed by Trophy Hunter "IndyWatch Feed World"

Late November, a wild wolf known as 926F or Spitfire, was shot and killed by a hunter outside of Yellowstone National Park. Wolf watchers who visit the park are mourning the member of the Lamar Canyon pack, as well as calling for buffer around the park to protect wolves who wander past the invisible boundary.

Spitfire was the daughter of infamous alpha female 832F, who was also known as 06 for the year she was born. As The New York Times reports, the wolf became a celebrity for her hunting prowess and her common appearances along the road traveled by visitors in the parks Lamar Valley. The wolf was also the subject of the book, American Wolf: A True Story of Survival and Obsession in the West. Both female wolves were killed by hunters.

Last week, Spitfire wandered outside the park in Montana near the northeast entrance to the park. As she neared a cluster of cabins, she was shot. The kill was within hunting law, as Montana permits the killing of several hundred wolves each year.

The attack took place on August 4, 2018, in front of the Palacio de Justicia government complex in the Venezuelan capital Caracas. That afternoon, President Maduro was giving a nationally televised speech on the occasion of the 81st anniversary of the Bolivarian National Guard.

Bumpy start to G20 summit "IndyWatch Feed World"

German Chancellor Angela Merkel was expected to fly out to the G20 summit in Argentina on Friday after her original flight was forced to make an emergency landing in Cologne due to a technical problem.

We will not be proceeding today, Merkels spokeswoman told AFP on Thursday night.

According to tweets by German journalists on board the Airbus A340, named Konrad Adenauer after Germanys first post-war chancellor, Merkel will leave for Madrid on Friday and head on a commercial flight for Buenos Aires with a
slimmed down delegation.

The Chancellery did not confirm these reports.

A senior journalist with the public national television ZDF said Merkel would spend Thursday night in Bonn.

The plane turned back from the Netherlands and landed in Cologne because it was the only base with a replacement aircraft, the DPA news agency said.

The aircraft had taken off from Berlin at 7 p.m. and landed in Cologne around 8.30 p.m. Passengers had to wait on the plane for around 70 minutes, eyewitnesses said.

It was met on the tarmac by fire engines, DPA said, adding that the captain told the passengers the plane would have to turn back as a technical problem was disrupting several electrical systems.

The picture shows  the Konrad Adenauer aircrafts changed route. 

Germanys air force on Friday was investigating a serious technical mishap on Chancellor Angela Merkels plane that forced an emergency landing and delayed her arrival at the G20 summit by more than 12 hours.

The latest embarrassing glitch for the German military forced Merkel to instead take a commercial flight to Buenos Aires with a vastly reduced delegation and miss scheduled talks with several world leaders.

The message informed users that as of November 14, 2018, they would be required to pay a 9 percent amusement tax for PlayStation subscriptions such as PlayStation Now, PlayStation Plus, PlayStation Music, and others.

The tax is specifically related to streaming services, so the PlayStation games themselves will not be subject to the 9 percent tax. But in todays subscription-heavy economy, many users purchase these consoles as a medium to stream videos and music rather than using them solely to play games. Not to mention, the tax will still include subscription services that allow Playstation users to connect and play with other users around the globe. So if you own a PlayStation in Chicago, it is unlikely that you will be able to fully avoid this tax.

PlayStation users, however, are not the only victims of this absurd tax.

Chicago is one of the most heavily taxed cities in the country. In addition to holding the title for the highest sales tax nationwide, the city also levies additional taxes on bottled water and cell phones.

The amusement tax was actually passed several years ago and included almost all forms of entertainment. Whether residents are looking to spend an evening at the theater, see a concert, cheer on their favorite sports team, go to a nightclub, or even catch a movie, they are on the hook for an additional 5 percent tax.

In 2015, the amusement tax was expanded as city officials realized they could bring in additional revenue with the creation of a cloud tax. Capitalizing on the popularity of streaming services, the city began instituting a 9 percent tax for using platforms like Netflix, Hulu, Spotify, and others. And thanks to the inclusion of the streaming services, the amusement tax now brings in about $12 million annually. It also applies to anyone whose billing address is within city limits.

The city of Chicago is currently operating on a $400 million deficit. Its no wonder, then, that the city has had to get creative when it comes to extorting money from its residents. The amusement tax was created as a means of decreasing the deficit and aiding the city in paying for additional expenditures, which essentially means that Chicago dwelle...

Air Indias Near Disaster Should Be Wake Up Call for U.S "IndyWatch Feed World"

Blog: Air Indias Near Disaster Should Be Wake Up Call for U.S.

by John Goglia  December 2, 2018, 9:42 AM

As I sit down to write, news reports are highlighting a near disaster in India involving an Air India Express flight carrying 130 passengers and 6 crewmembers in a Boeing 737 that hit a brick airport boundary wall and thenincrediblykept going for more than four hours, even after being informed by airport authorities of the collision. Like many disasters and near disasters, this event raises questions beyond the aeronautical judgment of these particular pilots. And, yes, a full investigation is needed to determine exactly what happened and why. But its not too early for the U.S. to monitor this event for its implications for Indias ability to oversee the safety of its airlines.

Worlds top 5 most evil corporations "IndyWatch Feed World"

. photo-

Monsanto

The company that needs no introduction, creator of DDT and Agent Orange, Monsanto is one the worlds largest pesticide and GMO seed manufacturers. It is known for being the first company to genetically modify a seed to make it resistant to pesticides and herbicides. Monsantos herbicides have been blamed for killing millions of crop acres, while its chemicals were added to blacklists of products causing cancer and many other health problems.

Apple

Once the darling of Microsoft-hating gadget lovers, Apple more recently has been accused of mistreating or underpaying their employees, hiding money offshore, and not paying taxes. It has also been accused of violating health or environmental legislation, and misusing its position where they have a monopoly in the market. And, oh yes, deliberately slowing older iPhones and overcharging for its products to boot.

Nestle

The worlds largest food and beverage company Nestle says it is committed to enhancing quality of life and contributing to a healthier future. However, it has been dragged through numerous scandals involving slave labor. The multinational is one of the most boycotted corporations in the world, as violations of labor rights have been reported at its factories in different countries.

Philip Morris

The products of the American multinational cigarette and tobacco manufacturing company are sold in over 180 countries outside the United States. Philip Morris owns Marlboro, one of the worlds biggest brands. Back in 1999, Philip Morris courted officials of the Czech Republic by explaining how smoking would in fact help their economy, due to the reduced healthcare costs from its citizens dying early.

McDonalds

American fast-food company McDonalds was founded in 1940. The company serves more customers each day than the entire population of Great Britain, but has a long history of terrible labor practices. It has been constantly under fire for serving unhealthy junk food, which contributes health problems. Researchers have found that McDonalds burgers cannot decompose on their own.

Putin warns of financial crisis the likes of the world has not yet seen "IndyWatch Feed World"

Cant wait..

The global economy is facing a threat of a spiraling protectionist measures that can lead to a devastating crisis, Vladimir Putin warned. Nations must find a way to prevent this and establish rules on how the economy should work.

The Russian president spoke out against the growing trend of using unilateral restrictions to achieve economic advantage, as he addressed guests of the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum (SPIEF) on Friday.

The system of multilateral cooperation, which took years to build, is no longer allowed to evolve. It is being broken in a very crude way. Breaking the rules is becoming the new rule, he said.

In addition to traditional forms of protectionism such as trade tariffs, technical standards and subsidies, nations are increasingly using new ways to undermine their competition, like unilateral economic sanctions. And nations which thought they would never be targeted by such measures for political reasons are now being proved wrong, Putin said.

The ability to impose sanctions arbitrarily and with no control fosters a temptation to use such restrictive tools again and again, right and left, in every case, regardless of political loyalty, talks about solidarity, past agreements and long cooperation, he said.

Putin called for a change of course, for free trade to be defended, and for rules-based regulation of the global economy, which would alleviate the chaos resulting from the rapid technological transformations arising from the development of digital technology.

The disregard for existing norms and a loss of trust may combine with the unpredictability and turbulence of the colossal change. These factors may lead to a systemic crisis, which the world has not seen yet, he said.

He stressed that there is a need for transparent universal rules as well as an inclusive mechanism, which would allow those rules to be amended in a way that would be accepted by the international community.

We dont need trade wars today or even temporary trade ceasefires. We need a comprehensive trade peace, the president stressed.

Competition, clash of interests, has always been, is, and will always be, of course. But we must be respectful towards each other. The ability to resolve differences through honest competition rather than by restricting competition is the source of progress, Putin added.

The speech comes amid turbulent times for the global economy, in which the nationalist policies of US President Donald Trump have pitted America against other nations which his administration believes to be enjoying unfair advantages in trade. Trump has threatened China, European nations, Canada, and Mexico with trade restr...

There are many strange facts surrounding a number of missing submarines. Joseph was on duty on an Ocean Station patrol on the Coast Guard Cutter Mellon. It was during this patrol that they had a number of unique UFO sightings that included radar and visual verification by a number of witnesses. Three objects passed over the ship traveling at 3500mph having approached the ship from the direction of where the sub was lost. Flying time of note from OSV to that site at that speed recorded and verified was approximately 10 minutes.

It is highly possible that the UFO phenomenon, and what could have been a very dangerous rogue operation gone array, possibly leading to what could have been one of the most significant event.

French Prime Minister Holds Talks After Violent Protests in Paris "IndyWatch Feed World"

PARIS French Prime Minister Edouard Philippe met with political rivals Monday in a bid to ease protesters anger after facing widespread criticism following violent anti-government protests that rocked Paris.

More than 130 people were injured and 412 arrested Saturday in the French capital amid the nations worst riot in a generation. Police responded with tear gas and water cannons, closing down dozens of streets and subway stations to contain the riot.

By Sunday, some of the most popular tourist streets in Paris were littered with torched cars and broken glass from looted shops and the Arc de Triomphe monument was tagged with graffiti.

French President Emmanuel Macron, just back from the Group of 20 summit in Argentina, held an emergency meeting Sunday on security and the government hasnt ruled out the possibility of imposing a state of emergency.

It was the third straight weekend of clashes in Paris led by protesters wearing distinctive yellow traffic vests. The protests began last month with motorists upset over a fuel tax hike and have grown to encompass a range of complaints that Macrons government doesnt care about the problems of ordinary people. Yet other protests in France on the same topic Saturday remained peaceful.

Philippe and Macron have been lambasted for their handling of the crisis. After meeting with the prime minister, Socialist leader Olivier Faure urged Philippe to drop the tax hikes and to restore a wealth tax that was slashed by the centrist government.

We want a change in the method. One needs to come down from Mount Olympus, Faure said, referring to Macrons Greek god nickname of Jupiter.

Laurent Wauquiez, head of center-right Les Republicains party, urged Macron to hold a referendum to end the crisis but did not say what its topic should be.

French people need to be heard again, and for that we must organize a referendum to decide these issues. Only these measures will restore calm, Wauquiez said.

More anti-government protests took place Monday as ambulance workers took to the streets near the National Assembly in Paris to complain about changes to working conditions. Protesters set tires on fire and blocked traffic. One activist held up a sign reading The State killed me and others chanted Macron resign!

The yellow vest movement is bringing together people from across the political spectrum complaining about Frances economic inequalities and waning spending power.

Since the movement kicked off on Nov. 17, three people have been killed and hundreds injured in clashes or accidents stemming from the protests. Over the past three weeks, protesters have been setting up road blockades across the country and their movement has garnered wide public suppor...

Two U.S. Police Departments Cancel Training with Israel "IndyWatch Feed World"

Two police departments in the New England region of the United States canceled their annual visit to Israeli police forces and engagement in training, amid pressure from organisations affiliated with the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement.

The Vermont State Police and the Northampton Police Department in Massachusetts both canceled their planned trip to Israel for a training program just days before it was supposed to start.

A number of groups in opposition to the program, including some affiliated with the BDS movement, mounted pressure on the local police forces to back out of the trip over increasing concerns about US law enforcements treatment of asylum seekers in the country.

A coalition of organisations, including the Vermont National Lawyers Guild, Jewish Voice for Peace (JVP), Vermonters for Justice in Palestine, announced in a press release Thursday that Vermont State Police Director Colonel Birmingham canceled the trip in response to a petition created against it.

After a meeting with concerned Pioneer Valley residents, Northampton Mayor Narkewicz withdrew Police Commissioner Kasper from the same trip, the press release said.

The program, called Resilience and Counter-Terrorism, was first created in 2002 and entails a week-long seminar in Israel where local US law enforcement trains with Israeli military, police, and secret service.

It is funded and organised by the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), and the decision marks the first time police departments decided to cancel their trip in the programs nearly 20 years.

Previous participants to the program include the former Deputy Director of US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), along with other top ranking law enforcement officials, according to JVP.

The ADL told the Haaretz newspaper on Friday that the program did not provide tactical training to US officers, but would train them to enhance their effectiveness in preventing and responding to extremism and terrorist threats and violence.

Organizers declared the decision a victory against the ADL-funded program, and then sent a letter to the Boston Police Department to follow suit.

The tactics taught are inhumane and are used in the continued killing and oppression of communities of color across the nation and the globe. Law enforcement and elected officials should understand that we as a community are watching and will hold them accountable for their actions, Mark Hughes, dire...

Buhari, who is running for re-election in February, spent five months in Britain last year being treated for an undisclosed illness. One theory widely aired on social media - and by some political opponents - was that he had been replaced by a lookalike from Sudan called Jubril. No evidence has been presented, but videos making the claim have been viewed thousands of times on YouTube and Facebook. "It's the real me, I assure you. I will soon celebrate my 76th birthday and I will still go strong," Buhari told Nigerians in a town hall session in Poland on Sunday, where he was attending a conference, when asked about Jubril.

Australia: Newcastle participants in high school climate strike speak out

By our reporters

3 December 2018

Last Friday, around 2,000 high school students in Newcastle, a New South Wales port city 160 kilometres north of Sydney, took part in a national strike against the refusal of governments to address climate change.

Like rallies on the same day in Sydney, Melbourne and other areas, the Newcastle protest was attended by high school students of varying ages, along with parents and teachers.

In addition to expressing their anger over environmental destruction, students spoke out against war, social inequality and the turn to authoritarianism. Newcastle has been hard hit by decades of job cuts, and the closure of entire industries. As in other regional centres, youth face a future of insecure and casual work, unemployment and associated social problems.

What Makes A Good Life? Lessons From The Longest Study On Happiness "IndyWatch Feed World"

By Mayukh Saha

Happiness is not guaranteed to any of us, as John Green says, the world is not a wish-granting factory. For centuries, we have all chased happiness in materialistic things, money, fame, wealth and what not. Even when you ask people today what they would need to be completely happy, the general answer is a lot of money or becoming famous and in a way, we find this answer acceptable but psychiatrist Robert J Waldinger disagrees, and vehemently so.

Waldinger graduated summa cum laude from Harvard College and then went on to become one of the directors of the longest running studies in adult happiness that has about 724 men as participants. The study has been going on since the last 75 years- yes, you read that right!

The participants of the study can be divided into two parts, the first one consisting of men who were included when they were graduating from Harvard during the 1930s and the second one is dominated by men from the same time but these were the most troubled kids from a poor area in Boston.

We all know that psychological studies and research barely ever go on for so long, but this study has remained alive, thanks to the generations of academicians who did not give up on it and also all the participants who made sure to be in contact with the researchers and extended their cooperation every time it was solicited.

Dr Waldinger then goes on to talk about what the study really centres around: happiness! What makes us happy? What makes our lives full and keeps our souls at peace?

H.W. Bush nearly got the firing squad had it not been for the intervention of Edgar Hoover

George H.W. Bush Coordinated the Dal-Tex Hit Team

George H.W. Bush was working for the CIA at least as early as 1961; more than likely he was recruited in his college days, at Yale, when he was in the Skull and Bones Society. He and his wife Barbara moved to Houston where he ran an offshore oil drilling business, Zapata Offshore Co., which was a CIA front company with rigs located all over the world, making it very convenient for him to vanish for weeks at a time on CIA business where one would suspect what he was doing. Bush was a major organizer and recruiter for the Bay of Pigs invasion, which was codenamed Operation ZAPATA. Col.

Indian policeman killed amid cow slaughter protest "IndyWatch Feed World"

A police officer has been killed in mob violence over alleged cow slaughter in the northern Indian state of Uttar Pradesh.

Members of right-wing Hindu groups clashed with police when the protest turned violent on Monday.

The police retaliated with a baton charge after the mob allegedly set fire to the police station and several vehicles parked outside.

An 18-year-old protester was killed and another policeman was injured.

Police in Bulandshahr district, where the clashes occurred, have deployed additional personnel.

Cows are considered holy by Indias majority Hindu population. Many states have actively started enforcing bans on cow slaughter after the Hindu nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) formed Indias federal government in 2014.

So-called cow vigilantism has been on the rise and has led to several killings in the past few years.

Burnt motorcycles and vehicles on the streetImage captionMembers of right-wing Hindu groups allegedly set fire to the police station and vehicles parked outside

The local police got information about cow slaughter after which they immediately started investigating the matter, Anuj Jha, a top district official, told reporters.

But soon after, people in the area blocked the streets and started pelting the police with stones.

Mr Jha added that police officer Subodh Kumar Singh died in the clashes that followed.

It is unclear where the alleged cow slaughter occurred.

Police said they were investigating the incident to find out who instigated the violence.

According to the Irish Times, one passenger was hit with a bill for $300 after forgetting to turn on flight mode.

AT&T told the paper the antennas can automatically connect with phones that are not in flight mode and run up charges even when the phones are not in use.

They said the charges were racked up by antennas installed on the plane that operate outside an unlimited international roaming plan.

The O.O1 % Elite Are Creating An Authoritarian Beast System, And Those That Dissent stand to Lose EVERYTHING "IndyWatch Feed World"

They are transforming the Internet into the greatest tool of surveillance that humanity has ever seen, and if we stay on the road that we are currently on it is only a matter of time until our society becomes a hellish dystopian nightmare.  I wish that this was an exaggeration, but it isnt.  Over the past couple of decades, the Internet has completely changed the way that we all communicate with one another.  At one time, all forms of mass communication were tightly controlled by the elite, but the Internet suddenly allowed us to communicate with one another on a massive scale without having to go through their gatekeepers.  This radically altered the landscape, and at first the elite were unsure of how to respond to this growing threat.  There was no way that they could roll back time to an era before the Internet was invented, and so they have decided to use it for their own insidious purposes instead.

Today, the Internet has become the centerpiece of their Big Brother surveillance grid, and they are gathering information on all of us on a scale that has never been seen before in all of human history.  But of course it was never going to stop there.  Over the past couple of years we have started to watch the elite use all of this information to punish those that are doing or saying things that they do not like.

Perhaps the most extreme example of this phenomenon is what is going on in China.  The following comes from BuzzFeed

Chinese journalist Liu Hu always knew hed have trouble with the authorities; he had been exposing corruption and wrongdoing for years. He was used to being hassled with regular fines and forced apologies imposed by his authoritarian government. He nevertheless persisted in truth-telling.

One day in 2017, Hu logged onto a travel site, but couldnt book a flight because the site said he was not qualified. Soon he discovered he was blocked from buying property, using the high-speed train network, or getting a loan. And there was nothing he could do about it. His rights to essential goods and services were now circumscribed through an algorithm designed to discriminate against the 7.5 million people on Chinas Dishonest Persons Subject to Enforcement list.

The Academics Who Unleashed the Demon of Geopolitical Power "IndyWatch Feed World"

As Washingtons leadership fades more quickly than anyone could have imagined and a new global order struggles to take shape, a generation of leaders has crowded onto the world stage with their own bold geopolitical visions for winning international influence. Xi Xinping has launched his trillion-dollar Belt and Road Initiative to dominate Eurasia and thereby the world beyond. To recover the Soviet Unions lost influence, Vladimir Putin seeks to shatter the Western alliance with cyberwar, while threatening to dominate a nationalizing, fragmenting Eastern Europe through raw military power. The Trump White House, in turn, is wielding tariffs as weapons to try to beat recalcitrant allies back into line and cripple the planets rising power, China. However bizarrely different these approaches may seem, they all share one strikingly similar feature: a reliance on the concept of geopolitics to guide their bids for global power.

Over the past century, countless scholars, columnists, and commentators have employed the term geopolitics (or the study of global control) to lend gravitas to their arguments. Few, though, have grasped the true significance of this elusive concept. However else the term might be used, geopolitics is essentially a methodology for the management (or mismanagement) of empire. Unlike conventional nations whose peoples are, in normal times, readily and efficiently mobilized for self-defense, empires, thanks to their global reach, are a surprisingly fragile form of government. They seem to yearn for strategic visionaries who can merge land, peoples, and resources into a sustainable global system.

The practice of geopolitics, even if once conducted from horseback, is as old as empire itself, dating back some 4,000 years. Until the dawn of the twentieth century, it was the conquerors themselves from Alexander the Great to Julius Caesar to Napoleon Bonaparte whose geopolitical visions guided the relentless expansion of their imperial domains. The ancient Greek historian Plutarch tried to capture (or perhaps exaggerate) the enormity of Caesars conquest of Gaul a territory that comprises all of modern France and Belgium by enumerating the nine years of war that took by storm more than eight hundred cities, subdued three hundred tribes, and fought pitched battles with three million men, of whom he slew one million and took as many more prisoners.

In his own account, however, Caesar reduced all of this to its geopolitical essentials. ...

Elephant-sized mammal dating from the age of the dinosaurs throws theory of evolution into disarray "IndyWatch Feed World"

During the age of the dinosaurs, the story often told is that the thunder lizards ruled the earth, growing to the size of cars and busses while the ancestors of mammals and other animals were tiny little insect-eating fuzzballs, scurrying around during the night to avoid the reptilian teeth. But the fossil of an African elephant-sized creature found in southern Poland upends that narrative, reports Gretchen Vogel at Science magazine. The beast, named Lisowicia bojani, looked something like a cross between rhinoceros and a turtle, weighing in at nine tons. The creature is a dicynodont, one of the first groups of animals to eat plants. It's also part of a broader group of creatures called synapsids, which includes the direct ancestors of mammals, making it something of a cousin to the earliest mammal ancestors, or proto-mammals. The most intriguing thing about the creature, however, is that it dates to the Late Triassic period about 201 to 240 million years ago when dinosaurs first...

An Indictment of Netanyahu Would Further Endanger Palestinians "IndyWatch Feed World"

Israeli police over the weekend urged that Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and his wife, Sarah, be indicted for corruption. The decision lies with Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit.

The Israeli police and justice system have shown a willingness to punish corruption in high places. Former Prime Minister Ehud Olmert was sentenced to 27 months in 2014, but was released early.

According to BBC Monitoring, the police issued a statement saying, Between the years 2012 and 2017 the prime minister and his aides intervened blatantly and continuously, and sometimes even daily, in the content published by the Walla news website. The intervention of the prime minister and his aides in the content and appointments [of editors and reporters] at the Walla website was meant to advance his personal interests, through publication of flattering articles and photos, removal of content critical of the prime minister and his family members, and so on.

The case concerns the giant media company Bezeq and the favors and tax breaks thrown to it by Netanyahu, who kept the communications portfolio in his Cabinet for himself.

Netanyahu had earlier been accused by the police of attempting to do a deal with the owner of Yediot Aharanot, a major mass-circulation newspaper. Its sales were being hurt by a free newspaper started by Netanyahu supporter Sheldon Adelson [called] Yisrael Ha-yom (Israel Today). Netanyahu suggested that Adelson could reduce his print run to help out Yediot Aharanot if only the latter would run more positive stories about Netanyahu and his far right Likud Party.

In the terms of contemporary Israeli politics, Netanyahu, despite being a far-right politician, is to the left of many persons on the Cabinet. If he is indicted, there will likely be new elections, and extremist parties could come to power.

Avigdor Lieberman of the (mostly Russian) Israeli is our Home party, recently resigned from the cabinet over Netanyahus unwillingness to go to war immediately against the Palestinians in Gaza.

Hence, a change in government could accelerate the Israeli dispossession of the Palestinians and result in further warfare and bloodshed.

Russia One's evening broadcast indicated that the Russian borders are strongly fortified and ready to face anything Ukraine might throw at it. The concern here is for a Ukrainian, not a Russian, provocation. This follows from the information in the Kerch Strait incident last Sunday, which detailed that Ukrainian counterintelligence agents directed the sailors on board the Ukrainian ships to not follow proper notification and navigation procedures with regard to the Russian authorities as they entered waters mutually controlled by both Russia and Ukraine.

Choose your fighter: Dick Cheney or Ruth Bader Ginsburg. I mean, obviously, its gotta be RBG (unless youre one of those roots-for-Darth-Vader types) in real life, but what about at the movies? This winter, biopics on the former VP and the current (for at least two more years, please!) Supreme Court Justice arrive in theaters on the same day. The former is pitched as a nonfiction dark comedy while the latter is more of a straightforward biopic. Vice stars a shockingly plus-size Christian Bale and is directed by The Big Shorts Adam McKay, while The Basis of Sex stars Felicity Jones and is directed by Deep Impacts Mimi Leder.

5 Reasons Trump Wont Fire Mueller "IndyWatch Feed World"

For those who fear that Donald Trump is about to lower the boom on special counsel Robert Mueller, take a deep breath and slowly exhale. Despite all youve heard from Trump himself, press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders and law professor Alan Dershowitz about the commander-in-chiefs unfettered authority to discharge any member of the executive branch with impunity, Mueller isnt going anywhere any time soon.

There are at least five reasons why Mueller and his probe are safe:

1. Trump lacks unilateral authority to remove Mueller.

The Department of Justice regulations under which Mueller was appointed preclude the president from dismissing a special counsel on his own initiative.

The current regulations were adopted in 1999. They replaced the old Clinton-era independent counsel statute, which expired the same year.

As the present regulations clearly stipulate:

The Special Counsel may be disciplined or removed from office only by the personal action of the Attorney General. The Attorney General may remove a Special Counsel for misconduct, dereliction of duty, incapacity, conflict of interest, or for other good cause, including violation of Departmental policies. The Attorney General shall inform the Special Counsel in writing of the specific reason for his or her removal. [emphasis added].
2. Acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker may lack the legal authority to remove Mueller.

Although Trump cant fire Mueller directly, he can order the attorney general to do his bidding. According to conventional wisdom, Whitaker will be only too eager to oblige. Indeed, in the view of many of the presidents foes, thats the reason Trump elevated Whitaker to the position of acting attorney general after he forced the resignation of Jeff Sessions, who had recused himself from overseeing the Mueller inquiry. With Sessions out of the way, Whitaker has replaced Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein as Muellers boss.

Since Muellers appointment, Whitaker has been among the...

In Defense of Conspiracy Theories: From Fake News to the Art World "IndyWatch Feed World"

To remain innocent may also be to remain ignorant.
John Berger, Ways of Seeing

At no point in time have conspiracy theories been as stigmatized as in the wake of the 2016 U.S. election. Incidentally, what is classified as such is no longer consigned to the societal fringe or ever been more popular. It is alleged that the spreading of fake news on social media, featuring debunked viral conspiracies like Pizzagate, was what tipped the voting scales in Donald Trumps favor. Or was it the very real conspiracy revealed in leaked emails published by WikiLeaks that the Democratic National Committee rigged the party primary for Hillary Clinton? Were supposed to consider that fake news too, apparently. Regardless, what is consistently never addressed is the reasons why people turn to unofficial narratives because it would require the media to address its own negligence to hold those in power to account.

An examination of the medias systemic failure would draw attention to its actual role in society as a tool of mass persuasion on behalf of the ruling elite. Perhaps if the official doctrines of the over-staged Warren and 9/11 Commission Reports were not treated as articles of faith, people wouldnt be suspicious of a rogue shadow government hidden behind such obvious dog-and-pony shows. If there is no incriminating evidence in the JFK files, why on earth is the public forbidden to see them half a century later? Instead, it is the working class who are demonized for expressing the human need to grasp the social totality denied by a corporate-controlled media that performs the opposi...

SOTT FOCUS: NewsReal: Rvolution Jaune? France Revolts Against Macron "IndyWatch Feed World"

As the gilets jaune movement continues in France, with protests entering their third week, the French government's response has been to hold firm with proposed increases in fuel and other taxes, and to task anti-riot police with beating back protesters in the heart of Paris. While this movement may also peter out like many before it, the scale, intensity and cross-party grassroots support for the 'yellow vests' speaks to the general discontent with corruption in France, and Emmanuel Macron in particular. This week on NewsReal, Joe & Niall discuss the violent stand-off between elites and working people in France, the 'Ukrainian' Navy's provocation near Russia's new Crimean Bridge, the latest lunacy from the legacy media regarding the Russiagate affair, and some of the antics at this year's G20 Summit.

The below was a summary of information from the Internet. It would be up to the individual reader to do their own research and decide whether or not it was valid. Patience is a Virtue. Having Virtue is a sign of a good moral being. Good moral beings have the power to overcome evil and change the world.

Judy Note: There was an intel blackout, with little new information since yesterday Dec. 1, though the general consensus was that the RV/GCR/NESARA had to be completed, not started, by the end of the month because the mass arrests would dissolve Congress and our government in general.

This past week Intel providers claimed that money has been moving for various phases of the RV/GCR. China, Zimbabwe and Iraq have already RVd. The beginning of Phase 2 Tier 4B (Internet Group) was said to have started on Fri. Nov. 30  on the date of President Bushs death. The Powers That Be wanted the RV done before announcement of a Global Currency Reset, which was expected upon conclusion of the G20 meetings on Sun.

US AIR RAIDS KILL OVER 200 CIVILIANS

THE Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights has reported that more than two hundred civilians lost their lives as the US-led coalition carried out airstrikes on Syrias troubled eastern province of Dayr al-Zawr in November.

As many as 206 civilians were killed in the air raids last month. There were 77 people under the age of 18 among the fatalities in addition to 57 female victims.`

The US-led air raids also resulted in the injury of hundreds of civilians, some of whom suffered permanent disabilities and had to have their limbs amputated. At least 30 civilians have been killed in US-led airstrikes against the town of al-Shaafah in Syrias eastern province of Dayr al-Zawr.

Local sources told Syrias official news agency, SANA, last Friday that US-led coalition fighter jets had targeted residential buildings in al-Shaafah town of Dayr al-Zawr province, leaving at least 30 people dead.

The Film the Israel Lobby Does Not Want You to See "IndyWatch Feed World"

The Lobby, the four-part Al-Jazeera documentary that was blocked under heavy Israeli pressure shortly before its release, has been leaked online by the Chicago-based website Electronic Intifada, the French website Orient XXI and the Lebanese newspaper Al-Akhbar.

The series is an inside look over five months by an undercover reporter, armed with a hidden camera, at how the government and intelligence agencies of Israel work with U.S. domestic Jewish groups such as the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), The Israel Project and StandWithUs to spy on, smear and attack critics, especially American university students who support the boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) movement. It shows how the Israel lobby uses huge cash donations, often far above the U.S. legal limit, and flies hundreds of members of Congress to Israel for lavish and unpaid vacations at Israeli seaside resorts, bribing the American lawmakers to do Israels bidding, including providing military aid such as the $38 billion (over 10 years) that was approved by Congress in 2016. It uncovers Israels sleazy character assassination of academics, activists and journalists, its well-funded fake grassroots activism, its manipulation of press coverage, and its ham-fisted attempts to destroy marriages, personal relationships and careers. The film highlights the efforts to discredit liberal Jews and Jewish organizations as tools of radical jihadists, referring, for example, to Jewish Voice for Peace as Jewish Voice for Hamas and claiming that many members of the organization are not actually Jewish. Israel recruits black South Africans into an Israeli front group called Stop Stealing My Apartheid, in a desperate effort to counter the reality of the apartheid state that Israel has constructed. The series documents Israels repeated and multifaceted interference in the internal affairs of the United States, including elections; efforts to discredit progressive groups such as Black Lives Matter that express sympathy for the Palestinians; and routine employment of Americans to spy on other Americans. Israels behavior is unethical and perhaps illegal. But dont expect anyone in the establishment or either of the two ruling political parties to do anything about it. It is abundantly clear by the end of the series that they have been intimidated, discredited or bought off.

Qanon - Bush Death Coincidence? "IndyWatch Feed World"





All of a sudden we get 30 plus drops. This past week has also been hot and heavy with the Special Counsel  truly shooting from the hip.  The hardest part for all of us is that we see bits and pieces of what must be a monumental plan of action that has already run for two whole years.  

We know, although no one has actually said this, but the investigators surely have full access to the entire database of the NSA at the least which covers 2001 through to today.  1984 is here and the irony is that applies to the employees of the government in particular.  Thus 60.000 and climbing sealed indictments is not an impossibility and also coincides with the probable work loads of the roughly five thousand investigators known to be tasked.  An indictment  may or may not include followup interviews and the like at this stage and may only include a log of the incriminating electronic traffic.  It may also include derivative documents as well so all the numbers must be viewed as fuzzy   In short this is all deadly serious and unheard of.

Now we have the sudden unheralded sudden death of George HW Bush to compare to the equally unheralded sudden death of John McCain.  I say this because we do not have a sudden trip to the hospital a few days or hours before or any other close preamble.  Then Q asks if this is a coincidence which proves it is not.  And yes the timing is auspicious and timely.

The reason for this is that GHWB is the GODFATHER of the DEEP STATE.  The take down of the DEEP STATE quite rightly begins with his demise.  I wonder if JFK jr was in attendance?  It would have been fitting.

As i have posted, it is possible and it is also plausible that JFK jr is alive in witness protection for this past twenty years and has been working under Trump's umbrella.  It is completely plausible that he is par......

The Donald Dossier: Cutting Through This Weeks Noisy News With What You Need to Know

This week, the worlds most important bilateral relationship will be renewed: President Donald Trump is set to meet with his Chinese counterpart, Xi Jinping. The setting is the kind of ponderous international grouping that Trump loathes: the G20. But he also appreciates the opportunity to perform on the worlds stage.

And what a performance it would be for Trump to reverse dramatically the course of his trade war.

Expectations from the global commentariat heading into the Buenos Aires summit, which begins Friday, are low. Its hard to imagine much of a joint communiqu on issues such as world trade and climate change topics on which Trump disagrees wildly with his peers. Remember, he scuttled consensus among the smaller G7 after a spat with Canadas Justin Trudeau.

Labour Will Try to Topple Theresa May if Brexit Deal Is Rejected "IndyWatch Feed World"

LONDON Britains opposition Labour Party ramped up the pressure on Prime Minister Theresa May Sunday, saying it will call a no-confidence vote if Parliament rejects her Brexit deal on Dec. 11.

May is battling to persuade skeptical British lawmakers to back the deal her government and the European Union reached last month. Rejecting it would leave the U.K. facing a messy, economically damaging no-deal Brexit on March 29.

Labour Brexit spokesman Keir Starmer said its inevitable that Labour will bring a motion of no-confidence in the government if Parliament rejects the Brexit agreement.

If shes lost a vote of this significance after two years of negotiation, then it is right that there should be a general election, Starmer told Sky News.

If Mays government lost a no-confidence vote, it would have two weeks to overturn the result with a new vote by lawmakers. If that failed, Britain would hold a national election.

Politicians on both sides of Britains EU membership debate oppose the agreement May has struck with the bloc Brexiteers because it keeps Britain bound closely to the EU, and pro-EU politicians because it erects barriers between the U.K. and its biggest trading partner.

With opposition parties and dozens of the prime ministers fellow Conservatives against the deal, Mays chances of winning the vote in Parliament appear slim. But Environment Secretary Michal Gove said, I believe that we can win the argument and win the vote.

I know it is challenging, he told the BBC on Sunday.

One of the things that I hope people will have the chance to do over the next nine days is to recognize that we should not make the perfect the enemy of the good, Gove said. We have got to recognize that if we dont vote for this, the alternatives are no deal or no Brexit.

Before the Dec. 11 vote, Labour is also trying to force May to publish confidential advice from the countrys top law officer about the Brexit deal.

Under opposition pressure, the government promised last month to show Parliament the legal advice from Attorney General Geoffrey Cox in full. Now, however, it says only that Cox will make a statement to Parliament.

Starmer said Labour would accuse the government of being in contempt of Parliament if it does not release all of the attorney generals input. A refusal to publish the text could trigger a historic constitutional row that puts Parliament in direct conflict with the executive, he said.

A key legal issue is how Britain can get out of a backstop provision that would keep the country in a customs union with the EU to guarantee an open border between the U.K.s Northern Ireland and EU member Ireland.

Israeli Police Call for Indicting Netanyahu on Bribery Charges "IndyWatch Feed World"

JERUSALEM Israeli police on Sunday recommended indicting Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on bribery charges, adding to a growing collection of legal troubles that have clouded the longtime leaders prospects for pursuing re-election next year.

Netanyahu denied the latest allegations. But his fate now lies in the hands of his attorney general, who will decide in the coming months whether the prime minister should stand trial on a host of corruption allegations that could play a central role in next years election campaign.

In a scathing attack on police investigators in a speech on Sunday, Netanyahu called the investigation a witch hunt that was tainted from the start.

Israel is a law-abiding country. And in a law-abiding country police recommendations have no legal weight, he told his Likud party at a Hannukah candle-lighting ceremony. Most of his half-hour holiday speech went to dismissing the allegations, and the boisterous crowd of hundreds of party members rallied behind him.

Sundays decision followed a lengthy investigation into a case involving Netanyahus relationship with Shaul Elovitch, the controlling shareholder of Israels telecom giant Bezeq.

Police said they found sufficient evidence that confidants of Netanyahu promoted regulatory changes worth hundreds of millions of dollars to Bezeq. In exchange, they believe Netanyahu used his connections with Elovitch to receive positive press coverage on Bezeqs popular news site Walla.

In a statement, police said the investigation concluded that Netanyahu and Elovitch engaged in a bribe-based relationship.

Police said they believed there was sufficient evidence to charge Netanyahu and his wife Sara with accepting bribes, fraud and breach of trust. They also recommended charges be brought against Elovitch, members of his family and members of his Bezeq management team.

Police have already recommended indicting Netanyahu on corruption charges in two other cases. One involves accepting gifts from billionaire friends, and the second revolves around alleged offers of advantageous legislation for a major newspaper in return for favorable coverage.

The prime minister has denied any wrongdoing.

The police recommendations regarding me and my wife dont surprise anyone, Netanyahu said in a statement. These recommendations were decided upon and leaked even before the investigation began.

The police recommendations do not have any immediate impact on Netanyahu. They go to his hand-picked attorney general, Avichai Mandelblit, who will review the material and make the final decision on whether to press charges.

That decision will have a great impact on Netanyahus future. Israeli law is unclear about whether...

Disputed MJ-12 Document Exposing Extraterrestrial Contact Authenticated "IndyWatch Feed World"

New Investigation Shows Disputed MJ-12 Document Exposing Extraterrestrial Contact is Authentic

WRITTEN BY DR MICHAEL SALLA ON DECEMBER 2, 2018

In the newly released December edition of the MUFON Journal, the first detailed analysis of a leaked 47 page Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) document is published, offering the startling conclusion that it is authentic. The DIA document provides a broad overview of the official history of extraterrestrial contact with Earth, and credits the beginning of the modern UFO era with the Colorado Springs radio transmissions of Nikola Tesla, which led to extraterrestrials sending interstellar craft to investigate. This culminated in flying saucer crash incidents such as Roswell (1947) and Aztec (1948), and the establishment of formal diplomatic relations with a human looking group of extraterrestrials during the Eisenhower administration.

The MUFON Journal articles author, Dr. Robert Wood, is the worlds foremost authenticator when it comes to the controversial Majestic Documents. These are leaked documents concerning the activities of Operation Majestic 12, which was formally set up in September 1947 to manage the UFO/extraterrestrial issue. A former aerospace engineer with McDonnell Douglas whose career spanned 43 years, Dr. Wood began his investigation and authentication of the Majestic Documents in 1995 with his son, Ryan.

In his article, which is titled Forty-Seven Pages From the DIA: Why Should We Care?, Dr. Wood gives a succinct overview of the 47 pages of the leaked DIA document:

Basically, there are five parts of intellectual content: (1) objective, history and organization of MJ-12; (2) details of the 1947 Roswell crash recovery; (3) details of the 1948 Aztec crash recovery; (4) condensed conversations with the Aztec EBE; and (5) issue of the national security or the risk of cultural upheaval, together with diplomatic and cultural exchanges during the 70s and 80s visiting some of EBEs worlds.

Recent Mass UFO Sighting from Multiple Angles! "IndyWatch Feed World"

RECENT Mass UFO Sighting From Multiple Angles!

December 2, 2018

Source: In5D | By Gregg Prescott, M.S.



Every day, it seems there are more and more UFO sightings. While many of these could possibly be CGI, it becomes a lot less likely when mass UFO sightings occur from multiple angles.

In the following video, a mass UFO sighting occurs around the 16:50 marker:



In this sighting that occurred on September 26, 2018 in Bogota, Columbia, SIX different angles were captured from various witnesses. This is one of the distinguishing earmarks of credibility when it comes to seeing UFO videos in crowded areas. In the age of cell phones, where just about everybody owns one, an impressive UFO sighting in a populated area should be captured on at least two or three cell phones from different angles.

The video clearly shows a UFO with intermittent blinking lights that change colors.

Another impressive video is shown toward the end of this video where four large UFOs appear to be hovering relatively low to the ground.

You can find this at the 31:47 marker in this above video.

Out of Place in Time: Was this alledged 'Oopart' hammer made 100 million years ago? "IndyWatch Feed World"

Oopart (out of place artifact) is a term applied to dozens of prehistoric objects found in various places around the world that seem to show a level of technological advancement incongruous with the times in which they were made. Ooparts often frustrate conventional scientists, delight adventurous investigators open to alternative theories, and spark debate. A hammer was found in London, Texas, in 1934 encased in stone that had formed around it. The rock surrounding the hammer is said to be more than 100 million years old, suggesting the hammer was made well before humans who could have made such an object are thought to have existed. Much mystery surrounds the so-called "London Hammer." Many have contested claims that the hammer is so old.

The Federal Reserves Reaction to the Next Crisis Might Surprise You "IndyWatch Feed World"

Those who expect the collapse of the current stock market bubble to play out just like the previous two crashes are in for a bit of a surprise.

The normalcy bias is the tendency to assume that future events will continue to unfold as they have in the past. By not accounting for changing conditions, the likelihood of a disaster, and the severity of its consequences, are underestimated.

There is a widespread assumption that the Federal Reserve will respond to the next financial crisis much as it has to previous crises by loosening monetary conditions, and/or buying up distressed assets. These are the only tools the fed really has, and they will certainly be used at some point, however the scale of the response will not be sufficient.

The Federal Reserve loosens monetary conditions by buying up treasuries (using money created out of thin air). This artificial demand causes interest rates to drop, thereby pushing investors into other assets (stocks and real estate for example) inflating new bubbles. In the past, the fed has typically begun raising interest rates almost immediately after the crisis was contained. However in the aftermath of the the 2007 housing crash interest rates were kept at zero for almost a decade.

The austerity measures of the EU are having a profound impact in Europe.

Yellow Vests movement is named after fluorescent jackets kept in all vehicles in France. They have converged in Paris to protest high living costs or in other words a TAX RIOT. Rioters ran across central Paris torching cars and buildings, looting shops, smashing windows and clashing with police. The French President, Emmanuel Macron, was in Argentina for a G20 summit and said he called an emergency meeting on Sunday when he would return. Jeanne dHauteserre, the mayor of Paris 8th district, near the Arc de Triomphe, came out and told the press: We are in a state of insurrection, Ive never seen anything like it.

Disaster Update



Source: Paul Stramer | By Anna Von Reitz

All the evidence here is continuing to unfold.

Ground Zero of the 7.0 Earthquake that started "mysteriously" in my hometown of Big Lake, Alaska, was a vacant lot approximately a block and a half from my house.

The HAARP-type resonance technology used is typically activated by the Navy which has mobile units on board its ships and submarines, but would also have to be allowed by the ground-based Air Force counter-measure units.

This technology leaves a characteristic "energy imprint" --- and as one Witness put it, "The Earth Just Rang Like a Bell and We Don't Know Why".

Well, we do know why. And we do know who is responsible.

The energy imprint and the compression wave that followed are all consistent with a Resonance Energy Weapon attack on a tiny, defenseless, unincorporated hamlet in the middle of Alaska.

The plates in my kitchen cabinets didn't fall or slide out onto the floor as a result of shaking and sliding that occurs in a normal earthquake. Instead, whole stacks of plates broke in half as a result of a Karate Chop-like force hitting them at 90 degree angles to the progress of the shock wave.

To the Bullies and Bad Men who did this --- you are all a bunch of cowards and criminals who deserve to be removed from this planet.

Parting Shot From "Poppy" Bush and Threats from the Treasury



Source: Paul Stramer | By Anna Von Reitz

I have a friend in MI6 -- a man I have known more than forty years. He is a loyal Brit, despite being aware of the many failings of his government. We have a grumpy fondness for each other-- trade bad puns, commiserate, and observe the world on a purely social basis.

He got in contact with me this morning and unequivocally stated that the "strike" on Big Lake was a "parting shot" in honor of "Poppy Bush" ---George Herbert Walker Bush, who was "executed" that same day by lethal injection "for his part" in 911 and many, many other crimes.

If so, that would be consistent with reports coming in from American Intelligence sources, too: "The strike on Big Lake was a coordinated strike carried out by the US NAVY and allowed by the USAF, both operating under the UN CORP. Their default to creditors should be final December 5, this coming Wednesday."

So, a parting shot from them, too.

My old Brit friend and I had a good laugh about all the reporters fondly gushing about GHW Bush and calling him "Poppy" right in the press, without a clue that this nickname refers to his kingpin status in the opium drug trade and isn't just a fond family substitute for "darling Papa".

The wannabe Communists fall right in line and support the Fascists. The Fascists never make the same mistake. That is, the Communists regularly mistake Fascists for Communists, but the Fascists never make the same mistake and support Communists.

Please remember that George Herbert Walker Bush was knighted by the Queen for his service -- to whom and what can only be inferred.

12 Ways the Right One Will Love You "IndyWatch Feed World"

With nearly 7.7 billion people on Earth, its almost impossible to believe that there isnt someone special out there somewhere waiting for you, but how are you supposed to know when youve found the one? While there is no one secret or guarantee, relationship experts say there are indicators that we can watch out for.

When youve found The One, the relationship just flows. Things are fairly easy, explains Jeannie Assimos, the Chief of Advice at the online dating site eHarmony. You understand each others viewpoints and perceptions, and either accept them or feel the same way. If a relationship is characterized by conflict, strife or butting heads on a regular basis, that likely tells you the compatibility is not there.

The ideal match is the one person in this world that will bring you great joy and happiness. They can light up your day, even when you are currently facing some of lifes darkest clouds. Do you believe that youve found that special someone?

Here are 12 different ways your perfect partner will love you like no one else can:

#1 Fight For You

We are going to face our fair share of challenges, difficulties, and obstacles in life. When you find the person, you are meant to spend your life with, they arent going to allow anything to keep you apart. They will stand tall, putting their heart and soul into making your relationship a priority in their life. They truly believe in your relationship, in the good times and the bad. They will fight for you.

#2 Dont Try to Change You

True love doesnt occur when you fall in love with the idea of who someone could possibly be, it means falling in love with who they are right now, in this minute, and continuing to love them as they choose to grow and evolve (at their own pace). It means encouraging and supporting your partner as they choose to grow, but also accepting any quirks or awkward habits that may help to make your partner who they are. If your partner doesnt show you the love and respect of accepting you for who you are, then its time to look for someone who does.

#3 Admit When Theyre Wrong

This is one of the hardest things that one can be expected to do, and yet its so important for a healthy, lasting relationship. A partner that truly loves and respects you will be able to admit when they have made a mistake or done you wrong, as they understand that being right...

How to Tell the Difference Between a Sociopath and a Psychopath "IndyWatch Feed World"

For some reason, a lot of people tend to assume that sociopaths and psychopaths are the same things but they are not. They might be very similar in a lot of ways but their differences really set them apart from one another.

Sociopaths are people who suffer from something known as antisocial personality disorder. They can on some levels show signs of caring, trustworthiness, and so forth. That being said, they are reckless, quite aggressive, and for the most part lack a conscious. Their moral compass is not tuned in the same way that the moral compass of those without APD would be.

Now, while Psychopaths are similar they suffer from something known as psychopathic personality disorder. This disorder is one of the most difficult to spot. People with it also lack a conscious but on a deeper level than that of a sociopath. Psychopathic traits are much more innate than the traits of sociopaths. They are predisposed through their violent or chaotic upbringings.

Psychology Today noted as follows in regards to the difference between sociopaths and psychopaths:

Sociopaths tend to be nervous and easily agitated. They are volatile and prone to emotional outbursts, including fits of rage. They are likely to be uneducated and live on the fringes of society, unable to hold down a steady job or stay in one place for very long. It is difficult but not impossible for sociopaths to form attachments with others. Many sociopaths are able to form an attachment to a particular individual or group, although they have no regard for society in general or its rules. In the eyes of others, sociopaths will appear to be very disturbed. Any crimes committed by a sociopath, including murder, will tend to be haphazard, disorganized and spontaneous rather than planned.

Psychopaths, on the other hand, are unable to form emotional attachments or feel real empathy with others, although they often have disarming or even charming personalities. Psychopaths are very manipulative and can easily gain peoples trust. They learn to mimic emotions, despite their inability to actually feel them and will appear normal to unsuspecting people. Psychopaths are often well educated and hold steady jobs. Some are so good at manipulation and mimicry that they have families and other long-term relationships without those around them ever suspecting their true nature.

While society and Hollywood, in general, make both have a very negative stigma surrounding them most do not end up as serial killers or even criminals for that matter. Sure, in some ways they do present...

NASA Releases Time-Lapse Showing The Disappearance Of The Polar Ice Caps "IndyWatch Feed World"

NASA recently posted a video on their YouTube channel that for the most part went unnoticed. This video shows how the sea ice in the Arctic has been shrinking.

In this video, Dr. Walt Meier of NASA Goddard Space Flight Center goes over how the sea ice has gone through changes in recent times. Sea Ice grows throughout the fall and winter then melts throughout the spring and summer. That being said, not all of the sea ice melts, some of it survives throughout the melting seasons but in the past few years, even the oldest sea ice seems to be disappearing from the Arctic Ocean.

Climate.Gov actually reported as follows on the topic:

Replacing thick, multi-year ice with thinner, first-year ice is not an equal exchange when it comes to the roles sea ice plays in the heat budget, climate, and ecology of the Arctic. Younger, thinner ice permits more heat to escape from the ocean water into the atmosphere, raising Arctic air temperatures. It is also more easily fragmented and less able to dampen wave activity during winter storms, increasing coastal hazards from tidal flooding and storm debris. And because it is so much quicker to melt in the coming warm season, it leads to higher water temperatures in spring and summer, suppressing populations of commercially valuable fish.

First-year ice forms on open water, so the amount of open water in the Arctic at the end of the melt season is a strong driver of first-year ice extent the following spring. Arctic sea ice minimum extent in 2017 was the eighth-smallest on recordwell below the 19812010 average, but not a record setter.

Sea ice generally exits the Arctic through the Fram Strait east of Greenland, and NSIDC reported that the low extent of multiyear ice may have been driven by a vigorous transport of sea ice during the 20172018 winter. The Beaufort Gyre north of Alaska has traditionally acted as a nursery for growing sea ice, but warmer conditions have impeded the gyres ability to preserve older ice since the start of the 21st century.

Throughout 2017 the trend of decline has been prominent in both the Arctic and Antarctic. Generally, older ice is much thicker but now that is not the case. The rapid decline in perennial sea ice is something we have noticed a significant change in as the years have been passing. As you will see in the animation below sea ice from the years of 1984 to 2016 the seasonal variability of the ice is changing from year to year.

NASA wrote as follows on the visuals represented in this video:

Younger sea ice, or first-year ice, is shown...

The Tiger Population in Nepal Has Nearly Doubled "IndyWatch Feed World"

Good news! On September 23, the country of Nepal announced that its tiger population has rebounded thanks to conservation efforts. There are now an estimated 235 wild tigers in the country, nearly double the 121 tigers reported in 2009. If the trend continues, Nepal could become the first country to double its national tiger population since the TX2 goal (to double the worlds population of wild tigers) was set at the St. Petersburg Summit in 2010.

Our commitment to the Global Tiger Recovery Program gains new ground with Nepals growing tiger numbers and a successful implementation of Nepals Tiger Conservation Action Plan, said Bishwa Nath Oli, Secretary of the Ministry of Forests and Environment. Protecting tigers is a top priority of the government, and we are thankful for the able support of our partners, enforcement agencies, local communities and the international community for a common purpose.

According to the World Wildlife Fund (WWF), the success in Nepal is largely attributed to the countrys political commitment and conservation efforts. For instance, in May of this year, Nepal celebrated the achievement of 365 days of zero poaching of rhinos on five occasions between 2011 and 2018.

Nepal has also built corridors to connect patches of protected habitat, identified prey species and works to improve their habitats, and incentivizes citizens to report poaching activities. As the press release states, these efforts are an excellent example of real conservation change that can be achieved when a country unites and coordinat...

A brief history of collective punishment: From the British Empire to Israel and the Palestinians "IndyWatch Feed World"

As old as war itself, collective punishment has long been the most damning and destructive weapon of all. Not satisfied with engaging combatants alone and directly, historically, it has fueled state reprisal against families, communities and entire populations in a drive to "win" a given conflict, military or otherwise, at all costs. With roots that trace, literally, to the start of time, reprisal has evolved as modern warfare became more proficient and popular resistance more prevalent. Nowhere has collective punishment proved more evident and efficient than it has in the West where it has long run the gamut from civil sanctions, to population displacement, to political penalty, to imprisonment, to outright slaughter. Of late, it has grown more subtle, yet no less pernicious, through state censorship that seeks to control the narrative of the day. In the American Civil War, during his "march to the sea", General Sherman ordered his troops, when faced with any resistance from...

"A Look to the Heavens" "IndyWatch Feed World"

Rich in star clusters and nebulae, the ancient constellation of Auriga, the Charioteer, rides high in northern winter night skies. Composed from narrow and broadband filter data and spanning nearly 8 Full Moons (4 degrees) on the sky, this deep telescopic view shows off some of Auriga's celestial bounty. The field includes emission region IC 405 (top left) about 1,500 light-years distant. Also known as the Flaming Star Nebula, its red, convoluted clouds of glowing hydrogen gas are energized by hot O-type star AE Aurigae. IC 410 (top right) is significantly more distant, some 12,000 light-years away.

The star forming region is famous for its embedded young star cluster, NGC 1893, and tadpole-shaped clouds of dust and gas. IC 417 and NGC 1931 at the lower right, the Spider and the Fly, are also young star clusters embedded in natal clouds that lie far beyond IC 405. Star cluster NGC 1907 is near the bottom edge of the frame, just right of center. The crowded field of view looks along the plane of our Milky Way galaxy, near the direction of the galactic anticenter.

Defense Mechanisms: Beyond Behavior "IndyWatch Feed World"

Defense Mechanisms: Beyond Behavior
by Madisyn Taylor, The DailyOM

We can let go of our defense mechanisms when we are ready to be truly honest with ourselves. We all have defense mechanisms that weve developed over time, often without being aware of it. In times of trouble, the behaviors that have worked to get us past challenges with the least amount of pain are the ones that we repeat; even when part of us knows they no longer work. Such behavior is a natural response from our mental and physical aspects. But because we are spiritual beings as well, we have the ability to rise above habits and patterns to see the truth that lay beyond. And from that moment on, we can make choices that allow us to work directly from that place of truth within us.

"Acceptance..." "IndyWatch Feed World"

"Acceptance is a crucial step forward for those who prefer the idea of living this life over simply existing within it. Accept all that you've said and what you've done, because you cannot change your past. Accept the idea of the unknown, because the future is the unknown waiting patiently to reveal itself. Accept the person you have become thus far in your journey, because you are the only person who will be there with you when you finish it. Do all of this so that you may never find yourself having to accept regret that haunts you at two a.m., leaving you sweaty and broken hearted. All you have is this minute; not this hour, or this day, or this year. Live in this minute so that you won't get stuck simply existing with your guilty past, or with nothing but anxiety for the future."

Why Space and Time Might Be an Illusion "IndyWatch Feed World"

Why Space and Time Might Be an Illusion
by George Musser

"This year the world of physics celebrated the 102nd anniversary of Albert Einsteins general theory of relativity, which forms the foundation of our modern understanding of the force of gravity. Einsteins creation has been the ultimate antidote to a blas, seen-it-all attitude that sometimes infects even scientists. It opened up a universe that never ceases to surprise black holes, the big bang, dark energy, gravitational waves jolting us out of the grooves of thought that we fall into all too easily.

Yet the ink was barely dry on the theory when Einstein saw a problem. It contradicted quantum mechanics, suggesting that physicists needed an even deeper theory to unify these two pillars of fundamental physics. In June 1916 Einstein wrote: Quantum theory would have to modify not only Maxwellian electrodynamics but also the new theory of gravitation. That was quite an insight when you consider that quantum theory didnt even exist yet. It was still a nebulous idea that wouldnt coalesce for another decade. So, we have been celebrating the centenary not only of Einsteins theory, but also of the lon...

"What Foolish Forgetfulness..."; "We Hope to Live..." "IndyWatch Feed World"

"You live as if you were destined to live forever, no thought of your frailty ever enters your head, of how much time has already gone by you take no heed. You squander time as if you drew from a full and abundant supply, so all the while that day which you bestow on some person or thing is perhaps your last. You have all the fears of mortals and all the desires of immortals What foolish forgetfulness of mortality to defer wise resolutions to the fiftieth or sixtieth year, and to intend to begin life at a point to which few have attained."
 - Denis Diderot
We do not rest satisfied with the present. We anticipate the future as too slow in coming, as if in order to hasten its course; or we recall the past, to stop its too rapid flight. So imprudent are we that we wander in the times which are not ours, and do not think of the only one which belongs to us; and so idle are we that we dream of those times which are no more, and thoughtlessly overlook that which alone exists. For the present is generally painful to us. We conceal it from our sight, because it troubles us; and if it be delightful...

Israel wages a New War of Attrition in Jerusalem "IndyWatch Feed World"

Czech president Milos Zeman offered Benjamin Netanyahus ultra-nationalist government a fillip during his visit to Israel last week. He inaugurated a cultural and trade centre, Czech House, just outside Jerusalems Old City walls.

At the opening, he expressed hope it would serve as a precursor to his country relocating its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. If so, the Czech Republic would become the first European state to follow US President Donald Trumps lead in moving the US embassy in May.

It is this kind of endorsement that, of late, has emboldened Mr Netanyahus government, the Israeli courts, Jerusalem officials and settler organisations to step up their combined assault on Palestinians in the Old City and its surrounding neighbourhoods.

Israel has never hidden its ambition to seize control of East Jerusalem, Palestinian territory it occupied in 1967 and then annexed, as a way of preventing a viable Palestinian state from emerging.

Israel immediately began building an arc of Jewish settlements on Jerusalems eastern flank to seal off its Palestinian residents from their political hinterland, the West Bank.

More than a decade ago, it consolidated its domination with a mammoth concrete wall that cut through East Jerusalem. The aim was to seal off densely populated Palestinian neighbourhoods on the far side, ensuring the most prized and vulnerable areas the Old City and its environs could be more easily colonised, or Judaised, as Israel terms it.

This area, the heart of Jerusalem, is where magnificent holy places such as the Al Aqsa mosque and the Church of the Holy Sepulchre are to be found.

Under cover of the 1967 war, Israel ethnically cleansed many hundreds of Palestinians living near the Western Wall, a retaining wall of the elevated Al Aqsa compound that is venerated in Judaism. Since then, Israeli leaders have grown ever hungrier for control of the compound itself, which they believe is built over two long-lost Jewish temples.

Israel has forced the compounds Muslim authorities to allow Jews to visit in record numbers, even though most wish to see the mosque replaced with a third Jewish temple. Meanwhile, Israel has severely limited the numbers of Palestinians who can reach the holy site.

Until now, Israel had mostly moved with stealth, making changes gradually so they rarely risked inflaming the Arab world or provoking western reaction. But after Mr Trumps embassy move, a new Israeli confidence is tangible.

On four fronts, Israel has demonstrated its assertive new mood. First, with the help of ever-more compliant Israeli courts, it has intensified efforts to evict Palestinians from their homes in the Old City and just outside its historic walls.

Media Exposes Billionaire Pedophile Jeffrey Epstein Days Before His Trial Begins "IndyWatch Feed World"

A new investigation by the Miami Herald is shining a light on Jeffrey Epsteins long ignored crimes.

We are only two days away from the beginning of Jeffrey Epsteins civil trial and he can no longer hide. Do a search for the billionaire, convicted sex offender and it becomes clear that Epsteins time in the shadows is coming to an end. Headlines like Trumps Labor Secretary Once Helped a Billionaire Child Rapist Hide His Crimes, Records Show Bid to Block Info From Epstein Expos, How the powerful protect Jeffrey Epstein, and Trump Labor Secretary Alexander Acosta allegedly helped cover up sex crimes by Jeffrey Epstein, and its obvious his name will not be forgotten anytime soon.

The mainstream medias sudden interest in the crimes of Jeffrey Epstein comes as a result of an in-depth investigation published by the Miami Herald. The Heralds investigation was itself published just one week before Epsteins latest civil trial is set to begin in Palm Beach, Florida. The investigation repeated what many in the independent media have been reporting for years: In 2008, Jeffrey Epstein was accused of participating in sexual acts with young girls by at least 40 women before he was given a sweetheart deal by the U.S. government which allowed him to avoid spending the rest of his life in bars. Some of the girls also accused Epstein and his high-profile associates of organizing sex parties where young girls would be raped and abused.

Despite these disturbing facts, Epstein was offered a non-prosecution agreement which allowed him to plead guilty to the lesser charge of soliciting a minor for prostitution and soliciting prostitution. He was ordered to pay multi-million dollar settlements to victims and sentenced to 18 months in jail, of which he only served 13.  Epstein was allowed to stay in the Palm Beach County Jail in his own private cell where he was allowed to leave the prison six days a week for work release. Epstein was forced to register as a sex offender for life, but with his money and his connections he doesnt seem too bothered. He currently resides on his private island in the Virgin Islands.

20 Things You Start Doing Differently When Finally Gain Back Your Self Respect "IndyWatch Feed World"

While many people dont realize it, self-respect is something very easy to lose. People with self-respect just actually like themselves and are able to maintain their thoughts on themselves whether they are succeeding in life or failing.

A lot of the time people confuse self-respect with self-esteem but the two are very different things. Sure, we all on some level have respect for ourselves but building a proper sense of self-respect is important. When the world gets you down, you need to be able to maintain this kind of thing.

Below I am going to go over some of the things that a lot of people end up doing once theyve found their sense of self-respect. While some of them will come a lot easier than the others, they will all be important. How many do you recall having experienced?

20 Things You Will Begin Doing Once Youve Found Your Sense Of Self-Respect:

1. You become more honest about who you are and who you are not.

When you have self-respect you know who you are and who you are not. You stop lying to yourself and to other people. You accept yourself for who you are and no longer try to put on a fake face. While this might not seem like much it is a big step in the right direction.

2. You stop trying so hard to fit in or be normal.

When you have self-respect you begin to really see that fitting in is not important. You no longer want to be normal or to go with the status quo. You see that there is nothing wrong with thinking outside of the box and just being who you truly are.

3. You begin seeing how worthy you are of real love.

When you have self-respect you begin to see how worthy you are of love, happiness, and everything else. You realize that toxic love and friendships are not something you want any part in. You see that you deserve better and you will not accept the fake kinds of love anymore.

4. You start saying no.

When you have self-respect you learn how easy it is to say no. You stop being willing to do things that you really dont want to do. You allow yourself the room to finally make your own decisions.

5. You stop obsessing over material objects.

When you have self-respect you do not obsess over material items. Things dont matter as much to you anymore. You realize that when you pass on you cannot take them with you and you begin shifting towards a different direction.

6. You stop letting other people define your boundaries.

When you have self-respect you stop letting people in your life walk all over you. You make your boundaries and you do not let others cross the...

8-Year-Old Girl Receives Gifts From Crows She Fed For Years "IndyWatch Feed World"

As a young child, many of us watched the Disney classics, where princesses befriend the animals and birds who, in turn, make magical things happen for them. For one young girl, this is anything but a fairy-tale as her own feathered friends bring her gifts for over 4 years.

It all began when Gabi Mann was only 4 years old. Like most children, she wasnt exactly the neatest and cleanest of eaters. In fact, she was quite prone to dropping bits and pieces of whatever she was eating anywhere that she went, leaving a trail of crumbs behind her. This is how she attracted the attention of the neighborhood crows.

Following along behind her, they came to realize that they could count on her unintentional offerings. In time, Gabi began to befriend the birds, actively sharing her school lunch with them on the way to the bus stop. Her mother told BBC that she was aware that much of the food she was packing was given to the many birds that lined up to wait for Gabis appearance at the bus stop, but she didnt mind. She even began to notice the birds more herself. I like that they love the animals and are willing to share, she said. It was a kind of transformation. I never thought about birds.

As the friendship between Gabi an the grows began to crow, she went to further lengths to keep them happy. The family erected a backyard birdbath, which Gabi would keep filled with fresh water, and bird feeders were put out offering peanuts. She would even throw dog food out into the grass when she was spending time outside.

It wasnt long before the gifts began to appear. After finishing off the food left in their shallow feeders, they would replace them with little trinkets for the girl incl...

Soon, the Cherokee Tribe May Get Back Half of Oklahoma "IndyWatch Feed World"

Most everyone who has ever taken at least one history lesson understands the basic gist of what took place between the settlers and Native Americans.

Throughout the years many tribes have been promised land only to be swindled out of it down the road. Back in 1835, the US pushed the Cherokee Nation in Oklahoma to sign a removal treaty and pushing them out of their homelands and into the Indian territories that are in Oklahoma. That being said, their territories in Oklahoma are not as was agreed upon. The boundaries in which they are forced to live within seem to constantly be growing smaller and smaller.

They are pushed to allow outsiders to mine and do other things on their lands and issues surrounding this kind of thing are growing. That being said through a series of unfortunate events something wonderful could be happening in the near future for these Native American citizens. A murder case from back in the 1990s has the Supreme Court at a position they probably dont want to be in.

You see, basically, the public defender for the person who carried out the murder is arguing that because the crime occurred in an area that should be within the Muscogee Creek Nations reservation the state of Oklahoma did not have jurisdiction to try the case, which they did. The state of Oklahoma sentenced this man without the right to do so, it should have been a federal issue, right? This being the Murphy v. Carpenter case, while it might not sound like much this case could change everything for the tribes in Oklahoma.

If the Supreme Court agrees with this public defender and reinforces that the area is still Tribal land, that would open the door for those tribes to take back that land as it would be deemed still rightfully theirs. Back in 2017, the US Court of Appeals for the 10th Circuit agreed that it was tribal land which puts the tribes at a better advantage point. If the Supreme Court sees things in the same manner, this would be according to The Washington Post, the largest restoration of tribal jurisdiction over Native land in the history of the US.

While the Natives do deserve a lot more than this, it would be a step in the right direction. While no one would have expected a capital murder case to come down to something so important, it truly has. This ruling will also raise a possibility of sovereignty claims by other local tribes.

Judith Royster from the University of Tulsa told The New Republic as follows in...

It seems every day is Halloween with these satanic people casting spells and creating events on their superstitious dates. Some of the theories about what has transpired recently may seem a little out therebut thats generally where we find the Truth.

Atmospheric anomalies and other phenomena are reported at the time of the recent 7.1 quake near Anchorage. If memory serves, there were flashes in the sky in New Zealand in the last couple of years prior to one of their quakes. Some said it was natural in our electric universe, while others suspected man-made.

There is another facet to the latest attacks emerging that I questioned after the Paradise, California fires, and that is volcanic activity.

Daniel at Logic Before Authority showed us a puff of smoke and something rising up from the earth and dropping back down at the time one of the fires started and was the first I heard to mention volcanic activity and he found some interesting satellite footage in this video.

Robert Otey told us in an interview with American Intelligence Media that after his narrow escape with his three dogs, officials he spoke with asked him if he saw any lava. It seemed like a bizarre question, but they wanted to know because I think they expected it. Why would they expect it?

Then we saw footage near Paradise from Logic Before Authority where the water in the riv...
