"All Government..." "IndyWatch Feed World"

All government, in its essence, is a conspiracy against the superior man: its one permanent object is to oppress him and cripple him. If it be aristocratic in organization, then it seeks to protect the man who is superior only in law against the man who is superior in fact; if it be democratic, then it seeks to protect the man who is inferior in every way against both. One of its primary functions is to regiment men by force, to make them as much alike as possible and as dependent upon one another as possible, to search out and combat originality among them. All it can see in an original idea is potential change, and hence an invasion of its prerogatives. The most dangerous man to any government is the man who is able to think things out for himself, without regard to the prevailing superstitions and taboos. Almost inevitably he comes to the conclusion that the government he lives under is dishonest, insane and intolerable, and so, if he is romantic, he tries to change it. And even if he is not romantic personally he is very apt to spread discontent among those who are.

"The Foxes Are in Charge of The Swamp" "IndyWatch Feed World"

"The Foxes Are in Charge of The Swamp"
by Bill Bonner

HAMILTON, BERMUDA "Hmmm The plot thickens. The Trump team came into office with what might have been a historic opportunity to drain the Swamp and take the feds down a peg. Mr. Trump even said he would eliminate the national debt in eight years. Instead, he teamed up with Democrats to crash through the debt ceiling, gave the big spenders at the Pentagon even more money, cut taxes, and made the Swamp even deeper.

Predictably, tax revenues declined and the deficit rose. And the national debt went up by more than $1 trillion over the last 12 months. From The New York Times: "Personal tax receipts are up on their own, but corporate tax receipts are down by about a third from a year ago. That overall drop looks worse when you consider inflation. A dollar today buys about 2 percent less than it did a year ago, according to the inflation index used by the Federal Reserve to set monetary policy. So the government brought in slightly less money year over year, and that money was worth less than the equivalent amount a year ago"

Get Rid of the Fat: And now what to do? Reuters is on the story: "U.S. President Donald Trump, faced with a budget deficit at a six-year high, on Wednesday told his Cabinet to come up with proposals to cut spending by their agencies by 5 percent, but he suggested the military would be largely spared. Id like you all to come back with a 5 percent cut, Trump...


'Shocked' federal judge says State Department provided 'clearly false' statements to frustrate requests for Clinton docs "IndyWatch Feed World"

In a combative exchange at a hearing Friday in Washington, D.C., a federal judge unabashedly accused career State Department officials of lying and signing "clearly false" affidavits to derail a series of lawsuits seeking information about former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's private email server and her handling of the 2012 terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya. U.S. District Court Judge Royce Lamberth also said he was "shocked" and "dumbfounded" when he learned that FBI had granted immunity to former Clinton chief of staff Cheryl Mills during its investigation into the use of Clinton's server, according to a court transcript of his remarks. "I had myself found that Cheryl Mills had committed perjury and lied under oath in a published opinion I had issued in a Judicial Watch case where I found her unworthy of belief, and I was quite shocked to find out she had been given immunity in - by the Justice Department in the Hillary Clinton email case," Lamberth...


Rank cynicism: Australian government dangled Jerusalem embassy move because it needs Jewish votes in crucial by-election "IndyWatch Feed World"

Dearest subjects of Her Majesty's Crumbling English empire: be warned! One of your brethren realms - namely, the Federation of Australia - is sliding away from the beloved civilising influence of Westminster, and is headed for utter chaos! On saturday 20th October, a by-election in the Sydney electoral division of Wentworth, the seat of former prime minister Malcolm Turnbull, will decide the fate of current caretaker prime minister Scott Morrison (affectionately, and not-so-affectionately, known as 'ScoMo'), whose Liberal-National Party coalition government is barely hanging on. With a single-seat majority in the House of Representatives, a failure to retain this critical piece of furniture will see the current parliament well and truly hung, thus opening the door to a (gasp!) Labour government. But never fear; loyalists have mobilised all available reinforcements to prevent such a disastrous outcome! The by-election conveniently falls on the same day that English-American royal...


Dinosaur age predatory fish discovery "IndyWatch Feed World"

This image shows a new piranha-like fish from Jurassic seas with sharp, pointed teeth that probably fed on the fins of other fishes. From the time of dinosaurs and from the same deposits that contained Archaeopteryx, scientists recovered both this flesh-tearing fish and its scarred prey. Credit: M. Ebert and T. Nohl

From ScienceDaily:

150-million-year old, piranha-like specimen is earliest known flesh-eating fish

October 18, 2018

Researchers reporting in Current Biology on October 18 have described a remarkable new species of fish that lived in the sea about 150 million years ago in the time of the dinosaurs. The new species of bony fish had teeth like a piranha, which the researchers suggest they used as piranhas do: to bite off chunks of flesh from other fish.

As further support for that notion, the researchers also found the victims: other fish that had apparently been nibbled on in the same limestone deposits in South Germany (the quarry of Ettling in the Solnhofen region) where this piranha-like fish was found.

We have other fish from the same locality with chunks missing from their fins, says David Bellwood of James Cook University, Australia. This is an amazing parallel with modern piranhas, which feed predominantly not on flesh but the fins of other fishes. Its a remarkably smart move as fins regrow, a neat renewable resource. Feed on a fish and it is dead; nibble its fins and you have food for the future.

The newly described fish is part of the world famous collections in the Jura-Museum in Eichsttt. It comes from the same limestone deposits that contained Archaeopteryx.

Careful study of the fossilized specimens well-preserved jaws revealed long, pointed teeth on the...

Canada brings Venezuela to International Criminal Court "IndyWatch Feed World"

Requesting the International Criminal Court to investigate Venezuelas government is a significant escalation in Ottawas campaign of interference in the domestic affairs of another country.

Supported by five like-minded South American nations, its the first time a member state has been brought before the ICCs chief prosecutor by other members.

In Canada the campaign to have the ICC investigate the Nicols Maduro government began in May. I would like to see the states from the G7 agreeing to refer the matter of crimes against humanity to the International Criminal Court for a prospective investigation and prosecution, said Irwin Cotler at an Ottawa press conference to release a report on purported Venezuelan human rights violations. The former Liberal justice minister added, this is the arch-typical example of why a reference is needed, as to why the ICC was created.

Cotler was one of three international experts responsible for a 400-page Canadian-backed Organization of American States (OAS) report on rights violations in Venezuela. The panel recommended OAS secretary general Luis Almagro submit the report to the Office of the Prosecutor of the ICC and that other states refer Venezuela to the ICC. In a Real News Network interview Max Blumenthal described the hyperbolic  and propagandistic nature of the press conference where the report was released at the OAS in Washington. Cotler said Venezuelas government itself was responsible for the worst ever humanitarian crisis in the region.

Worse than the extermination of the Tano and Arawak by the Spanish? Or the enslavement of five million Africans in Brazil? Or the 200,000 Mayans killed in Guatemala? Or the thousands of state-murdered subversives in Chile, Argentina, Uruguay, Brazil, Peru, etc.? Worse than the tens of thousands killed in Colombia, Honduras and Mexico in recent years? Worse than the countless US (and Canadian) backed military coups in the region?

Or perhaps Almagro, who appointed Cotler and the two other panelists, approves of the use of military might to enforce the will of the rich and powerful. He stated last month: ...

Expecting an asteroid? Proposed budget for NASA's Planetary Defense Coordination Office suddenly increased three-fold "IndyWatch Feed World"

It didn't make many national headlines, but the proposed budget for NASA's "Planetary Defense Coordination Office" was just increased by 90 million dollars. At a time when our national budget is already stretched to the max, this seems like an odd thing to be spending so much money on. As you will see below, the "Planetary Defense Coordination Office" is only two years old, and it is in charge of tracking threats posed by near-Earth objects such as asteroids. Needless to say, if a giant asteroid suddenly hit our planet it would be the greatest catastrophe in modern times and for those of us that survived our lives would be radically different from then on. So the threat is real, but in recent years NASA has assured the public that there are no imminent threats. Has that now changed? This is a subject that I am particularly interested in, and so a Politico article about "NASA's asteroid defense program" definitely caught my eye... The Trump administration has proposed increasing the...


Snow arrives in South Korea's mountainous region 16 days earlier than last year "IndyWatch Feed World"

South Korea's northeastern mountainous region observed the first snowfall of the season on Thursday, with a torrential rain warning issued for parts of the east coast, the Gangwon Local Meteorological Administration said. Four centimeters of snow had accumulated by 9:00 a.m. in most parts of the high mountainous region, and snow accumulation of 7 centimeters was observed on the peaks of Mount Seorak in Yangyang in South Korea's northeastern province of Gangwon as of 9:30 a.m. The snowfall came 16 days earlier than last year, according to the administration.


Democratic incivility: GOP candidates assaulted as calls for violence against Republicans continue "IndyWatch Feed World"

The Minnesota Democratic Party has suspended a spokesman for calling for violence against Republicans even as two GOP candidates have been assaulted in suspected politically motivated attacks. The Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party has suspended communications staffer William Davis for one week without pay after making a Facebook post joking that Democrats would "bring [Republicans] to the guillotine" on Nov. 7, the day after the midterm elections. Minnesota Republican Party chairman Jennifer Carnahan said the suspension was not enough, calling for his immediate firing in the aftermath of separate attacks against Republican candidates. She said she has been subjected to numerous death threats during her tenure as the state party leader and that death threats are no laughing matter. "The overt hatred and violence that has become prevalent from many Democrats towards Republicans in recent times is unlawful, unacceptable, and downright scary," she said in an email.

What the Mainstream Media Arent Telling You About Jamal Khashoggi "IndyWatch Feed World"

What follows is a conversation between Professor As`ad AbuKhalil and Sharmini Peries of the Real News Network. Read a transcript of their conversation below or watch the video at the bottom of the post.

SHARMINI PERIES: Its the Real News Network. Im Sharmini Peries, coming to you from Baltimore.

We are just learning that Saudi Arabia will admit that it had something to do with the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, and that he was killed in a botched up interrogation. Apparently, the plan was to interrogate and then abduct him from Turkey. CNN is reporting that the Saudis claim that the operation took place without clearance and transparency, and that those involved will be held responsible. Well, who is responsible? This was a rather quick investigation on the part of the Saudi investigative team that arrived in Istanbul only on the weekend. How did they so quickly come to such a conclusion? It appears that Saudis want this dealt with quickly, perhaps a part of their damage control plan.

This is now an opportunity for us here at The Real News to look further into Jamal Khashoggi. Who is he, who does he represent, why was he murdered? Our next guest writes: Its been odd to read about Khashoggi in Western media. David Hirst in The Guardian claimed Khashoggi merely cared about absolutes such as truth, democracy, and freedom. Human Rights Watchs director described him as representing outspoken and critical journalism. With me is Asad AbuKhalil. Hes a professor of political science at California State University. Hes the author of Bin Laden, Islam & Americas New War on Terrorism and The Battle for Saudi Arabia. He also runs a popular blog, titled The Angry Arab News Service. Asad, good to have you with us.

ASAD ABUKHALIL: Thank you for inviting me.

SHARMINI PERIES: All right, Asad. Lets start off with you telling us about Jamal Khashoggi, and what he stood for as far as journalism and ethics of journalism is concerned.

ASAD ABUKHALIL: Well, I mean, hes close to my age, so his name has been familiar to me since my early youthful days back in Lebanon. And in our progressive left-wing Marxist circles, he was always a symbol of reactionary advocacy on behalf of the Saudi regime and militant Salafi Islam. Thats what he stood for. The picture that is being painted in mainstream Western media is totally unrecognizable for anybody who bothers to read Arabic. Unfortunately, all the people who are commenting about the issue and commenting even about his record of journalism, so to speak, are people who have never read anything except in the Washington Post.

You cannot judge this mans entire decades-long career of journalism by reading the English-language, edite...

Putin at Valdai: Russia to use nukes only if strike launched on its territory first, and other remarks "IndyWatch Feed World"

Speaking at the annual Valdai Discussion Club meeting in Sochi, Russian President Vladimir Putin has touched upon a wide array of issues, including the ongoing war in Syria, nuclear weapons, defense policy and bilateral relations with the US, China and Japan. Daesh Took 700 Hostages in US-Controlled Area in Syria "We now see what is happening on the left bank of the Euphrates River, our colleagues know that. This territory is under the protection of our American partners, they rely there on the Kurdish armed forces. But they obviously did not work it through, members of Daesh remained in several settlements," Putin said at the annual Valdai Discussion Club meeting in Sochi.

Already on campaign trail? Haley spoke to secretive neocon group a week before resigning UN post "IndyWatch Feed World"

A week before leaving the Trump administration, Nikki Haley spoke to the neocon group - Council for National Policy - lending weight to the prospect of a 2020 candidacy while touting her record as a warmonger's warmonger. The secretive, heavily evangelical CNP has developed a reputation for anointing Republican presidents. Donald Trump and George W. Bush both spoke in front of the CNP before setting out on the campaign trail, and Trump appointed several members to his cabinet in gratitude, including Steve Bannon and Kellyanne Conway. Haley revealed that, while she began 2016 as a never-Trumper, a job offer from Trump's Chief of Staff Reince Priebus was all she needed to convert to a disciple of the Donald. Mercifully, she turned down that first offer, admitting she was completely underqualified to be secretary of state. She had no such qualms about becoming ambassador to the UN, however, even though she told Trump at the time, "Honestly, I don't even know what the UN does."


EU leaders worried about Italys budget "IndyWatch Feed World"

Concerns over Italys budget spending adding to the massive debt of the eurozones third largest economy could hamper efforts to reform the framework of the EUs single currency, Dutch prime minister Mark Rutte warned his Italian counterpart on the sidelines of the EU summit on Thursday (18 October).

EU leaders discussed eurozone reforms and the Italian draft budget at their summit in Brussels, with concerns on the rise over the planned budget boost by Romes populist coalition government.

Italian prime minister Giuseppe Conte held bilateral meetings with the Dutch, German and French leaders.

Rutte, who has been increasingly leading a group of fiscally-conservative eurozone countries, said that the expected higher deficit was not helpful in the context of the debate about the future of the euro.

[This debate] does not become any easier when such a large member state appears not to stick to the agreements from the stability and growth pact, the Dutch leader warned.

During the meeting with EU leaders, Conte focused his speech on Italian reforms.

German chancellor Angela Merkel told reporters after the meeting that Conte briefed her on reforms, from the fight against corruption to the transparent digital structure of public administration, but that on the budget, Italy needs to engage in a positive dialogue with the EU commission.

Echoing Merkel, Rutte said reforms were always good, but that implementing them did not give a state an excuse to increase its deficit beyond what was agreed in the stability and growth pact.

Dangerous debt

EU officials have already been warning Italy over its planned 2019 budget, which is expected to increase the countrys debt, which currently stands at 133 percent of its GDP and which is the second biggest in the eurozone after Greece. The EU ceiling is 60 percent.

The EU criticism came after Italys populist government, a coalition of the Five Star Movement and League parties, set the 2019 deficit target at 2.4 percent, which spooked investors. The previous government promised to keep the deficit at 0.8 percent next year.

All over-indebtedness is dangerous in my opinion, Austrian prime minister Sebastian Kurz said at the EU summit.

The EU commission has the task of checking if budget plans stick to EU rules.

Conte said on arrival at the EU summit that the budget plans boost welfare spending, cut the retirement age and hike the deficit, and acknowledged they were unlikely to please the commission.

Euro commissioner Pierre Moscovici was in Rome on Thursday to hand a letter raising concerns over the...


Saudi Arabia Transfers $100,000,000 to the US as Khashoggi Crisis Deepens "IndyWatch Feed World"

When US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo flew into Riyadh to discuss the disappearance and likely death of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, Saudi Arabia transferred $100m to the State Department for US efforts against the Islamic State (IS) group, the New York Times reported late Tuesday.

While the funding was approved earlier in the summer, critics have viewed the timing of the transfer payment with suspicion.

The timing of this is no coincidence, a US official told the New York Times.

The US State Department envoy for the anti-IS coalition said in a statement on Wednesday that they expected the contribution to be finalised in the fall time frame.

The specific transfer of funds has been long in process and has nothing to do with other events or the secretarys visit, envoy Brett McGurk said.

The White House has not seemed alarmed amid a barrage of questions about Khashoggis disappearance, what Saudi officials know about it and its close ties to Saudi rulers and the countrys powerful crown prince, Mohammed bin Salman, in particular.

US President Donald Trump has called for people to give the Saudis the benefit of the doubt, stressing Washingtons business and geopolitical interests in staying close to Riyadh.

Trump tweeted that he spoke to Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, who totally denied any knowledge of what took place in Istanbul. Trump said MBS told him that he has already started, and will rapidly expand, a full and complete investigation into this matter.

After Pompeos meetings with the king and crown prince on Tuesday, Pompeo said Saudi Arabia has committed to conducting a full investigation.

Asked whether they said Khashoggi was alive or dead, Pompeo said: They didnt talk about any of the facts.

However, various members of the US Congress have been among those expressing outrage over what may have happened to the Washington Post columnist.

We need answers; were not getting them, Democratic Congresswoman Debbie Dingell told Middle East Eye on Wednesday.

Leading members on the Senates Foreign Affairs Committee have also triggered the Magnitsky Act, a US human rights law that compels the president to order an investigation into possible abuses. The law gives Trump 120 days to issue a report on the findings and impose appropriate measures.

Saudi officials have strongly denied any involvement in Khashoggis disappearance and say that he left the consulate soon after arriving. However, they have not presented any evidence to corroborate their claim and say that video cameras at the consulate were not recording at the time.

The morphing of the U.S. into the U.S.S.A. - the United States of Soviet America "IndyWatch Feed World"

We are experiencing an ever-increasing level of surveillance over the citizenry, government censorship and closed-door policies, control and manipulation of the media, and a "hardline" shift of all institutions to the left. The institutions I'm referring to specifically are the educational system (better termed a system of indoctrination), the courts, the religious institutions...every one of them are all "leaning" toward (if not striving toward) full blown socialism.

Capitol Hill: Glenn Simpson, Fusion GPS, pleads the 5th on dossier questions "IndyWatch Feed World"

Glenn Simpson - the co-founder of the Fusion GPS research group that commissioned the unverified, Democrat-funded anti-Trump dossier - on Tuesday invoked his Fifth Amendment right not to testify during an appearance before the House Judiciary Committee. On Capitol Hill, Simpson declined to answer multiple shouted questions from Fox News about his refusal to testify as he arrived to the committee room. But Simpson's lawyer, Joshua Levy, on Tuesday took aim at Republican lawmakers for compelling him to appear. "This committee would make Sen. Joseph McCarthy proud," Levy said. "Like Sen. McCarthy, this committee has largely conducted its business through secret, confidential interviews and depositions, binding witnesses and their counsels into silence while the members walk outside to all of you the media with public and selectively leaked interviews to tell you what they want you to hear."


Byron York: Republicans irate as Rosenstein talks to the press, not to Congress "IndyWatch Feed World"

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein doesn't give many press interviews. But he did, on Wednesday, invite a Wall Street Journal reporter to the Justice Department for what the Journal called an "expansive" conversation. Rosenstein talked about the Robert Mueller Trump-Russia special counsel investigation, calling it "appropriate and independent." He stressed that he serves at the pleasure of the president. He said he tries to avoid media speculation about both the investigation and his job. Rosenstein had time to discuss a lot of things. One thing apparently not mentioned in the interview was the fact that, at that very moment, Rosenstein was putting off appearing before the House Judiciary-Oversight task force that wants to question him, not just about the Trump-Russia investigation, but about reports that he last year suggested wearing a wire to secretly record President Trump in the White House and that he also discussed invoking the 25th Amendment in an effort to remove the...


'Sawed alive?' Gruesome 'taped' details of Khashoggi's alleged murder surface "IndyWatch Feed World"

After a Turkish daily said it obtained a recording from the Saudi consulate in Istanbul related to journalist Jamal Khashoggi, a London-based outlet published an ultra-graphic description of his alleged murder and dismemberment. A three-minute audio recording of Khashoggi's said to reveal what happened to him at the Saudi consulate has been leaked to the Turkish daily Sabah, but the paper has yet to release it. It is said to have been recorded by the journalist's Apple Watch. But the London-based Middle East Eye claims to know what's on the tape citing a source. It alleges the journalist was dragged into a study, where he was dismembered with a bone saw while he was still alive. The source also cites alleged witnesses hearing harrowing screams which only stopped, according to the claims, when the journalist was drugged with an unknown substance.


US-backed ISIS in Syria's Al-Tanf region charging refugees to leave, recruiting others "IndyWatch Feed World"

Tens of civilians have returned to the regions that are under the Syrian Army's control after paying a hefty amount of money to be allowed to leave a US-run refugee camp in al-Tanf in Southern Homs, well-informed sources reported on Tuesday. The Arabic-language website of Sputnik quoted the sources as reporting that tens of refugees in al-Rukban camp that is near the US-run al-Tanf base at the border with Iraq have fled towards their villages and towns in Eastern Homs. It went on to say that the fleeing refugees have paid $2,000 to the US-backed militants to be allowed to leave the camp and move towards the army positions.


Saudi Arabia: Foul play? Suspected Khashoggi 'hit team member' dies in mysterious 'traffic accident' "IndyWatch Feed World"

A member of the 15-man team suspected in the disappearance of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi has died in an accident back in Saudi Arabia, according to Turkish media, prompting suspicion of a cover up. Meshal Saad al-Bostani, a 31-year-old lieutenant in the Saudi Royal Air Force, is believed to have died in a 'suspicious car accident' in the Saudi capital Riyadh, sources told the Turkish Yeni Safak - the one that earlier covered the shocking details of the murder. A still taken from a Turkish police CCTV video, released by the Sabah newspaper, identified Bostani as he passed through Istanbul's Ataturk airport on October 2. He, along 14 other Saudi citizens allegedly arrived and left Turkey on the same day and are alleged by Turkish police to have tortured and murdered Khashoggi after he entered the Saudi consulate.

The Secretary of State met with Mohammed bin Salman in Riyadh on Tuesday. According to Axios, Pompeo told Salman during their meeting that the Saudi leader needs to "own" the situation surrounding the alleged macabre murder of Khashoggi at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul. Pompeo also reportedly warned the crown prince that the timeline for dealing with the scandal is "limited" due to increasing global outrage.


Russian biologists alter DNA of human embryos to make them resilient to HIV "IndyWatch Feed World"

Russian biologists have made a major breakthrough after altering the DNA of human embryos to make them more resilient to HIV. A similar technique can be used on pregnant HIV-positive women to protect unborn babies. A newly released study claims human embryos can become more resistant to the Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) if they have their DNA hacked in just the right way. Molecular biologists in Moscow say removing a CCR5 receptor (a protein on the surface of white blood cells) from the cells of HIV-positive patients helps their immediate recovery. "Removing the CCR5 receptor or its modifications... have already shown promising results in treating the HIV infection," the study says. It adds that a similar technique can be used on pregnant HIV-positive women to protect their unborn children. CCR5 is the main receptor used by strains of HIV that are responsible for viral transmission.


Trump to call the military to close Mex border as arrival of migrant caravan is days away "IndyWatch Feed World"

President Donald Trump has threatened to call in the military to seal off the US' southern border with Mexico, unless Mexico takes action to halt a 'caravan' of migrants making its way to the US from Central America. In a series of tweets Thursday morning, Trump accused the governments of Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador of allowing a large 'caravan' of migrants to proceed towards the US unchecked, and hit out at the Democratic party for opposing his own brand of tough border control. Trump also said that he "must, in the strongest of terms, ask Mexico to stop this onslaught - and if unable to do so I will call up the U.S. Military and CLOSE OUR SOUTHERN BORDER!"

Tories blast May for considering 'humiliating' Brexit delay; call for her to quit "IndyWatch Feed World"

Fuming Tory MPs have reacted angrily to Prime Minister Theresa May's admission that the UK could stay under EU rules "months" after Brexit - with some even telling her she needs to quit as leader over her handling of negotiations. On Thursday morning, May faced reporters after a night of discussions in Brussels with her fellow 27 EU leaders that were intended to try and break the current impasse on Brexit negotiations. She revealed one option that had emerged from last night's talks was an extension of the "implementation [or transition] period for a matter of months," in an effort to break the deadlock over the Irish border issue. The prospect of Brexit being further delayed, with a transition period running into 2021, and with it, potentially further UK payments of 15 billion going into the EU coffers, has infuriated Tory MPs. What will alarm the PM is that it's now not just hardline Brexiteers questioning her leadership. Tory Remainer Nick Boles, a former minister for skills...


A party's dishonor: The Clinton, Warren revelations "IndyWatch Feed World"

In a disastrous one-two punch leading up to the hotly contested midterms the Democratic party demonstrated - quite calamitously - how ill equipped they are toward reclaiming majority party status on Nov. 6. Take two of its top so-called "leaders" U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren and Hillary Clinton. Both did more harm to their party in the past 72 hours than anything Trump has ever tweeted - even at 3 a.m. Warren, long haunted by her dubious claims of Native American ancestry, decided just three weeks out from the election to release a self commissioned DNA test that proved she's no more Native American than the average white American. You read that right. Pocohantas, as the president likes to call her, confirmed what voters with two eyes here in the Bay State have known all along - she's no Indian.


Letter to Moreno: Top Democrat pushes Ecuador to 'hand over' Julian Assange "IndyWatch Feed World"

WikiLeaks raised the alarm Wednesday after the top Democrat on the House Foreign Relations Committee sent a letter to Ecuadorian President Lenin Moreno pushing him to "hand over" WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange to the "proper authorities." In a tweet, WikiLeaks complained that Rep. Eliot Engel, D-N.Y., sent the letter without a signature from the panel's GOP chairman and noted that it was done just weeks before the 2018 midterm elections. "NEW: Ahead of midterms, ranking Democrat, but not Republican, of House Foreign Relations Committee pressures Ecuador's president @Lenin to hand over @WikiLeaks' publisher @JulianAssange "A dangerous criminal and a threat to global security," the WikiLeaks Twitter account said.


Statement former OSCE Chair, Ukrainian chief diplomat: Russia has not invaded, no 'hybrid war' "IndyWatch Feed World"

Former Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine, who is also the former OSCE Chairperson-in-Office, Leonid Kozhara, has come forward and made a major public declaration which will have profound effects on the historical record and how EU officials will be required to treat the conflict in Ukraine, and the necessity of fulfilling the Minsk II Agreement. Kozhara's statements bring the EU back to the foundational framework of the Normandy Quartet, and away from US interference, which experts agree has been the major factor in the inability of Kiev to create a lasting peace on those terms. Kozhara - whose record ranging from his tenure leading the OSCE and as Ukraine's chief diplomat is impeccable - is clear: from the point of view of international law, the conflict in the east of the country is not international, the concept of "hybrid warfare" must be abandoned, and the Ukrainian government is responsible for non-compliance with the Minsk agreements. Inarguably, in effect Kozhara is...


US-led coalition F-15 jets bomb Kurdish forces fighting ISIS, leaving 6 dead "IndyWatch Feed World"

Two US-led coalition aircraft have bombed Syrian Kurdish forces, disrupting their offensive on Islamic State terrorists, RIA news agency reports. The diplomatic source has called out US' "lack of coordination and professionalism." Two US-led coalition's F-15 fighter jets have mistakenly targeted Kurdish units amid their offensive on the remaining forces of Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) terrorists in Syria, RIA reported, citing a "military and diplomatic source." It said six people were killed and 15 injured on the Kurdish side. The incident, which took place near the town of Hajin in the Syrian eastern Deir ez-Zor province, did not just disrupt the operation but also reportedly led to numerous defections in the ranks of Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF). Even worse, the terrorists managed to seize some territories in the area, the source added.

Rick Scott (via Twitter)

Rick Scott leads the self-financing pack in his race to unseat Sen. Bill Nelson (D-Fla.). Scott loaned himself a whopping $18 million in the third quarter, bringing his total self-contributions to nearly $39 million this cycle.

This level of self-financing hasnt been seen in a Senate race since 2012 when Linda McMahon now head of the Small Business Administration poured $49 million into her unsuccessful campaign for Chris Murphys Connecticut Senate seat. She spent $100 million between two campaigns for Senate in 2010 and 2012.

Scott, the current Governor of Florida, has self-funded more than 70 percent of his campaign, spending $52 million as of the most recent filing deadline. Hes getting support from New Republican PAC, which has spent $16.8 million opposing Nelson. While Scotts campaign is forbidden from coordinating with the Super PAC, the two are closely-tied.

RV/Intelligence Alert: "Heat" -- October 18, 2018 "IndyWatch Feed World"

Operation Disclosure

RV/INTELLIGENCE ALERT - October 18, 2018

(Disclaimer: The following is an overview of the current situation based on intelligence leaks received from several sources which may or may not accurate. Other confirmed sources may also be included in this overview.)

The stock market is on course to implode as planned.

Once the stock markets implodes and the old fiat financial system is broken, the QFS will be brought in and GESARA announced to minimize the impact of public chaos during the transition.

During the transition phase, a private worldwide redemption event (RV) will take place.

This redemption event will allow the opportunity for individuals holding exotic currencies to privately redeem for revalued rates under the QFS.

The redemption event will cause an influx of humanitarians essential to aiding humanity during the transition to implementation of the QFS and GESARA.

Zimbabwe will be the main benefactor of the redemption event and ultimately humanity as the country holds the raw assets required for the QFS to function for future generations.

The timing of the stock market implosion is currently unknown as there is an on-going purge operation on the Cabal that is currently in progress.

The US Federal Reserve and Saudi Arabia are currently in the spotlight for purging and are beginning to feel the heat.

Moscow ready for larger-scale provocations by the West, says Lavrov "IndyWatch Feed World"

Western provocation, the prospect of WWIII, and Chinas closer stance with Russia are just some of the topics that Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov has spoken about with RT France.

We will be ready for larger-scale provocations too. But our answer is very simple if they talk to us through the media, we will respond through the media too, but specifically and in a correct manner, Lavrov said, answering questions from RT France, Paris Match and Le Figaro.

FILE PHOTO Truth Leem / Reuters

Going further, he said a third world war is an unimaginable scenario, noting that everybody would be sane enough not to let it happen.However, an aggravating factor is the absence of any dialogue between the Russian military and NATO.

Tensions are still high between the two, Lavrov said, citing the recent mid-air incident in which a Spanish fighter jet accidentally released an air-to-air missile during a training mission in Estonian skies. Thank God, there were no casualties, but what if it would have landed on Russian soil? Everything is so close there.

It all comes as the US is updating its nuclear doctrine, the top diplomat stated.

Theyre creating low-power nuclear weapons with a clear intent to potentially use them in combat.

The toxic political climate in European capitals and Washington makes mending ties extremely hard, Lavrov added. While the European Commission remains trapped by countries opposing reconciliation with Russia, the American elites are also fueling tensions. I think its silly to remain hostages to the whim of American lawmakers, he said.

While the West continues to slap Moscow with sanctions and trade cuts, Russias relations with Beijing and other Asian powers are on the rise. We needed to compensate for the low level of economic cooperation with Europe, the foreign minister explained. And we saw growing opportunities for that in China, India...


The Search for God and the Imaginary Worlds Between. "IndyWatch Feed World"

Dog Poet Transmitting.......

I wonder when God will finally get pissed off? I thought it would happen some while ago. There are many reasons for that. It's not just the possessed and insane. It's the big guns like the governments and media. It's the rogue religions; the ones who sell out their principles to give the impression of tolerance for all kinds of things; things I don't tolerate, in silence that is. Nor am I aggressive to hinder these fools. They are on the road to the destination that their life has shaped for its specific revelations.

The madness is there to be seen. If you can stand in the light of objective awareness, you can see with clarity; see in all its frightening implications. I have links upon links but let these serve for the moment. There may be more but this is not what I came here for.

First my apologies for being so absent in the last couple of months. I have really been going through it. I'll spare you the details, gruesome as they would prove to be. It is all merely changes and that is one of the basic truths of life. We change or we die. Sometimes we change and then die but there is a road of specific change where you do not die in the conventional sense; according to the Bible; we shall not all die but we shall all be changed.

I am grateful now for all that has happened to me, crazy as that might sound but what it has done is to strip away so many of my foolish attachments which... I was unaware of. Never before, except perhaps when I was much younger and consumed with desire for the ineffable have I felt like this, which put me in many a perilous circumstance. The divine is the most important thing in life and is now the centerpiece of mine. I am so grateful!!! It is a bit vertigo enhanced. One must remember to breathe deeply and with an easy flow- remembering that the ineffable is the breath of life. Breathe God in and breathe God out.

'There is no God': Stephen Hawking thought alien life or time travel more likely than divine creator "IndyWatch Feed World"

Legendary physicist Stephen Hawking did not believe in the existence of God, his final book reveals. The posthumous manuscript also delves into alien theories and the dangers of artificial intelligence. More than six months after Hawking passed away at the age of 76, his family have pulled together what they believe to be some of the scientist's most compelling answers to mysteries of the universe. His closing piece provides remarkable insight, outlining black hole theories and his fear that humans could be surpassed by artificial intelligence - a topic he spoke widely on in his final years. In one chapter of "Brief Answers to the Big Questions" Hawking tackles the thorny issue of God and gives a resounding answer. "There is no God. No one directs the universe," he writes. "For centuries, it was believed that disabled people like me were living under a curse that was inflicted by God. I prefer to think that everything can be explained another way, by the laws of nature."


There are 12 Feminine Archetypes: Which One Are You? "IndyWatch Feed World"

While we are all individuals, with our own strengths and weaknesses, it is said that there are a set of spiritual archetypes structural elements of the human psyche upon which our own personality is built. What does this foundation reveal about your true nature?

There is no denying the fact that we live in an incredible world, in which we are each empowered to embrace and express our individuality and unique nature. However, if we are trying to better understand ourselves and the way that we react to situations in our lives, we need to dig down to the basics. The solid foundation underlying your personality, known as your spiritual archetype, can reveal a great deal about the way you act, think and feel on a daily basis.

Have you ever wondered why some situations in life bother you more than those around you? Or why you feel driven to take on specific tasks? This archetype will shed a light on your true motivation. Archetypes are described as systems of readiness for action, and at the same time images and emotions. They are inherited with the brain structure indeed they are its psychic aspect. They describe the way in which we fit into the bigger picture of the universe, providing insight into how we connect with others, and with the planet as a whole.

Archetypes are often used by psychologists to better understand patterns of behavior. While each person may deviate slightly from the initial definition, influenced by our own individuality, they help experts to predict how one may react in a given situation.

For us personally, the ability to understand and predict our reactions will provide us with an opportunity to prepare ourselves. This is particularly important if your natural reaction is an impulsive one that may lead to trouble. Furthermore, they help us to better understand how the world perceives us, which is also an empowering piece of information!

There are 12 commonly accepted archetypes of the feminine soul. Which one are you?

When life is difficult, you see it as a challenge. Standing tall and determined, you run towards danger as opposed to away from it, which can sometimes get you into trouble. While people look up to your courage and bravery, they may also find themselves intimidated by your aggression. Its important to remember that you can be strong without being too rough around the edges. While you often deny your feminine streak, it may actually serve you well to look deep...

U.S. commander in Afghanistan survives deadly attack at governors compound that kills top Afghan police general "IndyWatch Feed World"

Niyaz Mohammad Amirii (R), governor of Logar province, chats with U.S. Army Gen. Scott Miller, commander of Special Operations Joint Task Force Afghanistan
October 18 2018

 A gunman wearing an Afghan army uniform opened fire Thursday on participants in a meeting with the top U.S. commander in Afghanistan, killing three top southern provincial officials and wounding at least three Americans. But Gen. Austin Scott Miller, the target of the attack claimed by the Taliban, escaped unharmed.

Among those killed in the attack inside the governors compound in southern Kandahar province was the regions top police general, Abdul Raziq, who was seen as the most powerful man in southern Afghanistan.

U.S. military officials confirmed that a U.S. soldier, a contractor and another civilian were wounded in the attack, which occurred shortly after a high-level meeting attended by Miller.

In a news conference later Wednesday, Afghan President Ashraf Ghani confirmed that Abdul Raziq and the Kandahar provincial intelligence chief were martyred in the attack. He said he has sent security authorities from Kabul to assess the situation.

The Afghan Interior Ministry said the provincial governor, Zalmai Wessa, was wounded in the shooting and was rushed to a local hospital, where he was later reported to have died of his wounds. The ministry said Miller was not hurt and returned to Kabul.

A Taliban spokesman, Qari Mohammad Yusuf Ahmadi, said in an email to journalists that the group carried out the attack and that Miller was among the main targets. Ahmadi asserted that Miller had been killed, a claim also denied by U.S. military officials. He claimed that in addition to Abdul Raziq, whom he described as the savage commander of Kandahar, the dead included Wessa and the Kandahar intelligence chief, Abdul Momin.

The religion of Westerners is basically, a profit money!

There is no democracy there, but propaganda and the rule of privileged people, secret societies, deep states, Trilateral commission, Bilderberg Group and Zionists. There are no real human rights in Western countries, but artificial promotion of minorities which are used as a hammer to destroy rights of majority in order to intimidate and control them. There are no laws, diplomacy and negotiation in international affairs but military interventions, terrorism, special and proxy wars, violence, inhumane practices like torture, assassinations, and a lot of lies, lies, lies You can call this religion any way you like, but as a Christian, I call it satanism Maybe they dont really worship the devil, not all of them, but in all that they do, they are definitely satanists. Russia has all the resources this greedy machinery needs, and being a good old traditional country with a lot of religious people, but also socialists, communists and conservatives, Russia presents both danger and target for them. They would have attacked Russia long time ago if there werent its nuclear weapons and military strength. Thats why Russia is a hope of humanity, the promise of freedom and liberty for all, and the last obstacle for the total enslavement of mankind. Thats why we stand united for Russia!

US dollar to plunge 40% against euro? "IndyWatch Feed World"

The US dollar could severely depreciate against the euro by 2024, says forex analyst Ulf Lindahl, chief executive officer of A.G. Bisset Associates. He says the greenback is entering the cycle of losses.

Since the 1970s, the US currency has been repeating a 15-year cycle of losses and gains, and the greenback has now entered the phase of declines, Lindahl said.

When investors learn about the 15-year cycle, they are initially skeptical and doubt it exists, the analyst said, as quoted by Bloomberg. If non-US investors dont hedge against the dollar, they could face the riskiest investment climate in 45 years, Lindahl added.

The analyst predicts that the dollar will fall to $2 per euro and 75 yen per dollar by 2024, corresponding to 41 percent and 33 percent losses, respectively. Lindahl notes that the cycle of losses and gains is a usual pattern for economy, investors dont see it when it concerns the dollar.

From the economic standpoint, Lindahl cites the following factors for the greenbacks decline: a likely slowdown in US economic growth that will result in a market slowdown, political turmoil, and the dollars overvaluation on a purchasing-power-parity basis against almost all major currencies.

The dollar has strengthened this year against the euro, trading at $1.1542 on Wednesday compared to $1.25 at the beginning of the year. The US currency has slightly weakened against the yen in the last 12 months.

The Tragic Anniversary in Afghanistan We Dare Not Acknowledge "IndyWatch Feed World"

This piece originally appeared on

The absurd hopelessness was the worst part. No, it wasnt the Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) blowing limbs off my boys, or the well-aimed gunshot wounds suffered by others; it wasnt even the horror of ordering the deaths of other (enemy) human beings.

No, for a captain commanding 100 odd troopers in Southwest Kandahar province at the height of the Obama surge of 2011, what most struck me was the feeling of futility; the sense that the mission was fruitless operationally, and, of course, all but ignored at home. After a full year of saturating the district with American soldiers, the truth is we really controlled only the few square feet we each stood on. The Taliban controlled the night, the farmlands, the villages. And, back in 2011, well, the U.S. had about 100,000 servicemen and women in country. There are less than 15,000 on the ground now.

Its an uncomfortable, almost un-American, truth there is nothing more that the US military can do for the foundering government of Afghanistan. And, as the war reached a lamentable 17th anniversary last week, now is the time to once again raise the alarm. Fact: this next year, teenagers born after 9/11 will begin to join the military and, eventually, fight in Afghanistan.

As if thats not disturbing enough for the ostensible republic, consider this: the Afghan War is failing, failing worse than ever before. Along each line of effort security, politics, and economics the metrics point downward despite all the blood and treasure already sunk into Americas longest war.

Lets begin with security, arguably the paramount measure of success in any war. For nearly two decades, one US commanding general after another has assured the American public that with just a few extra troops and a little more time he could achieve victory in Afghanistan. The US has tried many approaches: a light footprint counter-terror force (2001-08), a massive surge, or infusion of 100,000 troops (2009-13), and a shift to smaller advise and assist elements training the Afghans (2014-present). Nonetheless, after all that time and effort, the security situation is worse than ever.

The Taliban controls or contests more districts  some 44% than at any time since the 2001 invasion. Total combatant and civilian casualties are forecasted to top 20,000 this year another dreadful...

A Disney Heiress Reveals the 1 Percents Worst-Kept Secret "IndyWatch Feed World"

When the 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act passed, Republicans celebrated with beers in the White House Rose Garden. President Trump promised help for financially struggling Americans, saying, Congress has reached an agreement on tax legislation that will deliver more jobs, higher wages and massive tax relief for American families and American companies.

But as a new, remarkably honest video by Abigail Disney, filmmaker, activist and heiress to the Walt Disney fortune shows, its not the American family struggling to put food on the table and pay rent that will benefit from these tax cuts.

Greetings from the 1%, Disney begins the video. [W]e in the 1% got a great Christmas present last year, she says, I dont know if you rememberit was called a very big tax break.

I didnt need it, Disney continues, but the Republicans gave it to me anyway. And I hear [that] if the Republicans do well in these midterms, they want to give me another one; an even bigger one, in fact.

Lawmakers promised higher wages and job security for the middle class. Instead, she says, the rich got money they didnt need, which they are spending on new yachts and other luxury items.

If the Republicans retain control of Congress in November, Disney warns, theyll only go further:

So anyway, 1%-ers are doing better than they ever have been doing, and guess what? You are paying for all of it.

Until a few weeks ago, all eyes were set on Israels post-mortem diplomacy with Russia in the aftermath of its sneak attack on Syria, which resulted in the untimely deaths of 15 Russian personnel onboard a surveillance aircraft. Now, it is Saudi Arabias turn to formulate a good public relations plan to mitigate the effects of the Khashoggi murder fiasco.

Britains international trade secretary Liam Fox has pulled out of next weeks Davos in the Desert summit in Riyadh amid increasing allegations that Saudi Arabia murdered leading dissident journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

A government spokesman confirmed the development saying: The Secretary of State for International Trade has decided the time is not right for him to attend the Future Investment Initiative in Riyadh on 23 October. The UK remains very concerned about Jamal Khashoggis disappearance.

We encourage Turkish-Saudi collaboration and look forward to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia conducting a thorough, credible, transparent, and prompt investigation, as announced. Those bearing responsibility for his disappearance must be held to account.

With todays announcement, Britain has joined the list of other high-profile bankers, business chiefs and ministers who are also shunning the economic summit amid widespread concern about the fate of a journalist.

Journalist Khashoggi was last seen entering the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on 2 October, where Turkish officials allege he was killed. Saudi Arabia, however, denies any allegation.

French finance minister Bruno Le Maire also told media that he will not go to Riyadh next week, adding: For the moment there are serious facts here, the full light must be shone on this affair and so I will not go to Riyadh.

Human 2.0 Is Almost Here: The Transhumanism Agenda Just Went Mainstream

OCTOBER 14, 2018

Activist Post Editors Note:

As we wrote about in 2013, Medical Nanobots Will Connect Brain to Cloud Computing, the emergence of DNA nanobots and nanocomputing has been paving the way to reverse engineer the human brain. As Transhumanist Ray Kurzweil detailed at the time, Human Body 2.0 would accelerate toward becoming a full-fledged reality sometime around 2020:

In the coming decades, a radical upgrading of our bodys physical and mental systems, already underway, will use nanobots to augment and ultimately replace our organs. We already know how to prevent most degenerative disease through nutrition and supplementation; this will be a bridge to the emerging biotechnology revolution, which in turn will be a bridge to the nanotechnology revolution. By 2030, reverse-engineering of the human brain will have been completed and nonbiological intelligence will merge with our biological brains.

Melissa and Aaron Dykes have also been at the forefront of warning about the arrival of Transhumanism (or augmented humanity if you prefer). A new Forbes article covers the concept of Human Body 2.0 now that we are on the precipice of its arrival. However, instead of a warning about the technology itself, they ask the (rhetorical) question: Will you evolve with the times? Melissa details exactly what this evolution is intended to look like, as well as looking back at the various steps taken to get us into the predicament in which we find ourselves.

Why is Transhumanism entering the mainstream right now?



Stocks Fall Again As Investors Are Rattled By Fed Comments "IndyWatch Feed World"

Is The Federal Reserve Trying To Sabotage Trump?

Dow Jones Industrial Average at 367.68 (1.43%) 19.36 GMT

Could it be possible that the Federal Reserve is attempting to influence the outcome of the upcoming midterm elections?  Just weeks before Americans will go to the polls, the Fed has been making headline after headline with talk about interest rate hikes.  And they very well understand that interest rate hikes will rattle investors and slow down the economy.  In fact, every Fed rate hiking cycle since 1957 has ended in either a stock market crash or a recession.  So could the Federal Reserve be doing this on purpose in order to sabotage Donald Trump and the Republicans?  Nobody is really asking this question, but perhaps we should be.

For a while there it looked like a good rally was cooking on Wall Street, but then news about future Federal Reserve interest rate hikes sent stocks tumbling on Wednesday

The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell Wednesday in volatile trading after a summary of the Federal Reserves most-recent meeting showed the central bank was leaning toward more rate hikes moving forward.

The 30-stock index dropped 91.74 points to 25,706.68 as sharp losses in IBM offset strong gains in Goldman Sachs. The S&P 500 and Nasdaq Composite closed just below the flatline at 2,809.21 and 7,642.70, respectively.

And the Federal Reserve is also being identified as the reason why Asian stocks tumbled overnight

Anyone who has smoked DMT knows why Terence McKenna called it white knuckle stuff. One puff on a pipe and the experiencer is thrown in the time it takes to inhale and exhale a lungful of smoke into another world in which no familiar features remain. It is a world stranger and more outlandish than anything our wildest dreams or nightmares could ever conjure. It is also a world that is inhabited and most disconcerting of all still the inhabitants are focusing their attention on us. The abyss gazes also. Smoking DMT is like being turned inside out: not only is the true nature of reality exposed to us, but, in that same instant, we are also exposed to it. There is literally no place to hide on a DMT trip, because the Universe is fiercely and unfathomably alive, and it is right under our skins. Anyone who has smoked DMT once, and who knows therefore what to expect, will have to push his courage to the sticking place the next time he volunteers to say bye-bye to Kansas. The main consolation for the white-knuckled DMT-smoker is the knowledge that even the most intense trip only lasts from 5 to 15 minutes.

Meshal Saad al-Bostani, a 31-year-old lieutenant in the Saudi Royal Air Force, is believed to have died in a suspicious car accident in the Saudi capital Riyadh, sources told the Turkish Yeni Safak the one that earlier covered the shocking details of the murder.

A still taken from a Turkish police CCTV video, released by the Sabah newspaper, identified Bostani as he passed through Istanbuls Ataturk airport on October 2.

He, along 14 other Saudi citizens allegedly arrived and left Turkey on the same day and are alleged by Turkish police to have tortured and murdered Khashoggi after he entered the Saudi consulate.

The unconfirmed death of Bostani has already prompted accusations on social media that a cover up was underway by those who orchestrated Khashoggis disappearance.



Asian Prophecy by Robert A. Nelson "IndyWatch Feed World"

Asian Prophecy

by Robert A. Nelson

O Future, how do we know Thee ? Let me count the ways: Aeromancy, alectryo-, alcuro-, alphito-, anthraco-, arithmo-, etc. -- some 72 mancies are listed in Roget's Thesaurus (543.15, Forms of Divination) , plus astrology, augury, dowsing, phrenology, palmistry, dreams, and more et ceteras.

As humanity slouches toward Bethlehem, Mecca, or Wherever in search of redemption, we predict the future with every move we make. For example, it's a lucky guess when you hazards that nobody will run the red light while your body is in the crosswalk. If you do get hit, perhaps it's because you ignored or misread the psychic warning.

The form of guesswork known as "prophecy" usually (or at least often) has religious associations. Most Westerners are familiar with Bible prophecy, which is ubiquitous in Europe and the Americas, and wellknown everywhere else. It obviously drives the death wish of many millions of people who otherwise appear to be averagely "sane".

The Hindu, Buddhist, Zoroastran, Baha'i and other religions of the Far East also have accumulated a considerable corpus of communiques from the future. Most of them present an ugly prospectus with a hopeful, miraculous positive outcome, thanks to individual and collective enlightenment and leadership, and super-heroic saviors.

The Japanese yearn for the arrival of Miroku Bants / Rigden Japo. The Altai call him the White Burkhan and Oirot (Messenger). Hindus anticipate the advent of the Kalki Avatar and Maitreya. Zoroastrans call him Saohsyant. Tibetans expect Gessar Khan to save them from China.

Loud house-shaking boom heard in Sweetwater, Texas "IndyWatch Feed World"

A loud boom was heard in Sweetwater. Around 4:15 p.m. Tuesday, people heard a loud boom that shook houses. The police department also heard the boom, but dispatchers said they have not gotten any calls that would indicate what caused it. The only calls the fire department has gotten is from people asking about the boom. We can confirm the cause was not an earthquake. According to the U.S. Geological Survey, the closest earthquake today was a thousand miles away in Mona, Utah -- south of Salt Lake City.


UK press saturated with intelligence agents parroting propaganda for the Empire "IndyWatch Feed World"

That a free press underpins British democracy is an enduring myth that has been allowed to go unchallenged, up there with unicorns and the Loch Ness Monster. Because if a clutch of right-wing reactionary billionaires owning the bulk of a nation's major newspaper titles and media constitutes a free press, the word 'free' has been stripped and shorn of all meaning. Yet, while the aforementioned - let's be kind here - 'anomaly' has long been understood by anyone of adult years with the ability to put their underpants on the right way round in the morning, the extent to which the British establishment press and media has been penetrated by intelligence services and acts as a conduit for their agenda is less well known.

NYU students heckle Kissinger during speech - 'Rot in hell!' "IndyWatch Feed World"

New York University students heckled and disrupted an appearance by Henry Kissinger on Tuesday, accusing the former US Secretary of State of complicity in war crimes and crimes against humanity. Kissinger, now 95, was wheeled into NYU's Stern School of Business on Tuesday evening, where he appeared as part of the school's speaker series 'In Conversation with Mervyn King.' Meanwhile, protesters - some of them members of the International Socialist Organization - gathered outside to denounce Kissinger's checkered history of bloody foreign policy positions, including his support for Chilean dictator Augusto Pinochet in the 1970s, under whom some 80,000 political opponents were jailed and at least 3,000 executed. Inside, Kissinger was repeatedly interrupted by left-wing protesters, with the first shouting "Henry Kissinger, on behalf of the International Criminal Court, you are a war criminal, you have committed genocide against the people of the world!" before being escorted out by...

Poll of US military shows troops fear new major war is on the horizon, list Russia & China as top threats "IndyWatch Feed World"

Almost half of military service members believe that the US will be dragged into a new war within the next 12 months, according to a Military Times poll, with Russia and China topping the list of likely nemeses. Around 46 percent of troops who responded to the anonymous survey of currently serving Military Times readers said they thought the US would be fighting yet another war within the next year - an unsettling increase from the mere five percent who made similar predictions in a poll conducted last year. When asked about specific threats, the survey's 900 participants singled out Russia and China. Around 71 percent said that Russia was a significant threat, up 18 percent from last year's survey. China finished close behind, with 68 percent of service members describing Beijing as their primary concern - an increase of 24 points from last year. Cyber terrorism came out on top, with 89 percent listing it as the greatest threat to US national security.

Man Linked to Saudi Prince Suspected in Disappearance of Journalist "IndyWatch Feed World"

ISTANBUL A member of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salmans entourage during several trips abroad walked into the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul just before writer Jamal Khashoggi vanished there, a surveillance photo leaked Thursday shows, drawing the kingdoms heir-apparent closer to the columnists alleged slaying.

The man, identified by Turkish officials as Maher Abdulaziz Mutreb, has been photographed in the background of Prince Mohammeds trips to the U.S., France and Spain this year.

Turkish officials say he flew into Istanbul on a private jet along with an autopsy expert Oct. 2 and left that night. That was the same day Khashoggi, a columnist for The Washington Post who wrote critically of Prince Mohammeds rise to power, entered the consulate and was not seen again.

Saudi Arabia, which initially called the allegations baseless, has not responded to repeated requests for comment from The Associated Press over recent days, including on Thursday over Mutrebs identification. The AP could not immediately reach Mutreb for comment.

But Mutrebs appearance at the consulate, as well as later at the consul generals residence, adds to the growing pressure on Saudi Arabia amid international outrage over the disappearance of the writer, whom Turkish officials say was killed and dismembered.

In a further sign of that pressure, U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said he will not attend an investment conference in Saudi Arabia, as did senior government officials from France, Britain and the Netherlands. Several top business executives have also canceled plans to attend, as has the head of the International Monetary Fund, Christine Lagarde.

Analysts say that as long as the Saudis refuse to acknowledge what happened to Khashoggi, the leaks about the case will probably continue.

Turkey wants to show to the world that it cannot be ignoble, selling values and principles in political deals with U.S. or Saudi to try to bury the truth and come up with an acceptable scenario, said Yusuf Katipoglu, a Turkish analyst.

The pro-government Sabah newspaper on Thursday first published the images of Mutreb, showing him walking past police barricades at the consulate at 9:55 a.m. with several men trailing behind him. Khashoggi arrived at the consulate several hours later at 1:14 p.m., then disappeared while his fiance waited outside for him.

A report Wednesday by the pro-government newspaper Yeni Safak, citing what it described as an audio recording of Khashoggis slaying, said a Saudi team immediately accosted the 60-year-old journalist after he entered the consulate, cutting off his fingers and later decapitating him.

Previously leaked surveillance footage showed consular vehicles moving from the consulate to the consul...


West midlands police officers could face criminal charges "IndyWatch Feed World"

Two police officers face potential criminal charges over the death of former Aston Villa striker Dalian Atkinson.

Atkinson, 48, died after a Taser was fired by police called to an incident in his home town of Telford, Shropshire, in August 2016.

Three West Mercia Police officers were interviewed under criminal caution and have been served with gross misconduct notices.

The Independent Office for Police Conduct says it has referred the death of former Aston Villa star Dalian Atkinson to the Crown Prosecution Service to consider potential criminal charges against two police officers.

Medics carried out CPR on Atkinson for more than half an hour after officers Tasered him in the early hours of August 15 in the street where he grew up in Telford.

Atkinson in action for Villa against Manchester United in the early 1990s ( Reuters)

West Mercia Police officers were called at 1.39 am to a report of concern for safety in Meadow Road, in the Trench area.

Atkinson was a top-flight striker in the 1990s, starting his career at Ipswich Town then playing for Sheffield Wednesday and Spanish side Real Sociedad before moving to Villa.

His family have previously expressed frustration at not knowing why such force was used by police.

They said their kind, caring and protective son and brother had struggled to come to terms with a serious illness affecting his kidneys during the last six months of his life.

Mass Hypnosis of Democrat Activists? "IndyWatch Feed World"

Mass Hypnosis of Democrat Activists? The Video Organizers Hope You Never See [video]

OCTOBER 18, 2018

Source: Starship Earth: The Big Picture

This is surprising yet not so surprising footage, since I have noted that the zombified dimms armies are like programmed automatons rather than Humans.

It appears in this video like they are being programmed or hypnotized, and it is also reminiscent of the chanting in the classroom where Bush Jr. sat during the 9/11 attacks with the repetition involved.

These whack-jobs are literally weaponizing people, as I have said. When triggered, they wont even know what theyre doing; just performing a task, whether pounding on the doors of the Supreme Court or physically attacking those wearing a Trump or Q shirt.

People who dont believe activists would hurt them need to be aware of this. Anything could happen, and we should be very wary in crowds and political gatherings. Protestors could suddenly snap into action and strike without warning.

This video may be evidence of the programming, and I doubt if its a one-off. People never used to behave this way. The dark has pulled all the stops in the end game. They plan to crush the opposition through any means necessary.

Outside of this political activity, the dark also has sleepers embedded in society that they can activate at any time.



Trump 2020 raises unprecedented $100 million "IndyWatch Feed World"

(AP Photo/Evan Vucci)

With two years to go before the next presidential election, President Donald Trump has already raised an unprecedented amount of money for his 2020 re-election campaign.

Since January 2017, Trumps fundraising efforts totaled $106 million, and the president finished September with nearly $47 million on hand, according to recent quarterly Federal Election Commission filings.

His campaign committee along with his two joint fundraising committees raised $18.1 million from July to September, filings show.

Donald J Trump for President, the presidents campaign committee, has raised over $60 million since January 2017. His two joint committees, Trump Make America Great Again Committee and Trump Victory, collectively raised over $80 million. The funds from these joint fundraising committees overlap with the campaign committee, and raise money for both Trump and the Republican National Committee.

Many of the donations Trump has received so far are individual contributions under $200, with those small contributions totaling $13 million for his campaign committee and $41 million to the Make America Great Again Committee.

Comparatively, at this point in their respective first terms, Trump raised millions more than his predecessors.

Another Front in Saudi War: Kingdom Deports Yemeni Workers to Face Starvation at Home "IndyWatch Feed World"

SANAA, YEMEN Fifty-year-old Ali al-Za`ali grew up in Yemens Hajjah province. Around 30 years ago at the tender age of 20, al-Za`ali left Yemen, even then one of the most poverty-stricken countries on earth, to seek opportunity in neighboring oil-rich Saudi Arabia.  There he sent his modest earnings back to family members in Yemen. Al-Za`ali told Mint Press:

Before I was expelled from Saudi Arabia, I used to provide for my parents and my brothers families. Today, I cant even provide for myself.

This past August, al-Za`ali was rounded up in a Saudi government effort to locate and deport Saudis of Yemeni descent from the Kingdom. Now, after 30 years of life in Saudi Arabia, hes struggling to get by in Sanaa, with no prospects for employment and living in a country decimated by a three-year Saudi-led war.

Al-Za`ali is one of more than 700,000 Yemenis who, along with their families, are struggling to survive after recently being expelled from the Saudi Kingdom. Last year, Saudi Arabia, under Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, rolled out a new Saudization policy in which Yemenis were forced to pay residency fees or face deportation, pricing out millions who came to the Kingdom from neighboring states seeking a better life in the wealthy Gulf monarchy. Many of them were born in Saudi Arabia, the children or grandchildren of migrants from Yemen. Unable to secure Saudi citizenship, owing to a policy that reserves citizenship for those of Saudi descent, most were unable to attend school and were denied any form of government aid, including healthcare. Experts estimate that at least two million Yemenis remain in Saudi Arabia and are at risk of deportation.

Saudi authorities say that Yemenis make up the majority of migrants in Saudi Arabia around 77 percent, followed by Ethiopians at 22 percent. On March 29, 2017, Saudi officials set a three-month deadline Saudi residents of Yemeni descent to leave the Kingdom or risk fines and other legal measures, a policy that echoes Israels controversial policy towards migrants and refugees, which has drawn the ire of activists and human-rights groups alike. At 100 Saudi riyals a month, or $27 U.S. dollars, the fees are often out of reach for migrant workers. By the time fees reach 400 riyals in 2020, few will be able to afford them.

Italexit looming? Majority of Italians would vote to leave EU as immigration tops agenda "IndyWatch Feed World"

According to an opinion poll commissioned by Brussels' Eurobarometer, only 44 percent of Italians would vote to remain in the EU, compared to the member states' average of 66 percent. The figure is lower even than Britain, where a majority (53 percent) would today vote Remain if they had another EU referendum, while 35 percent would vote Leave. Britain announced that it was withdrawing from the bloc in 2016 after 51 percent of Britons voted for Brexit.

Hiatt urged these hypothetical figures to engage in serious self-reflection: "Can I possibly work for such a regime, and still look at myself in the mirror each morning?" That, said Hiatt, "is the question that we, as a nation, must ask ourselves now."

Facebooks Election War Room Takes Aim at Fake News "IndyWatch Feed World"

MENLO PARK, Calif. In an otherwise innocuous part of Facebooks expansive Silicon Valley campus, a locked door bears a taped-on sign that reads War Room. Behind the door lies a nerve center the social network has set up to combat fake accounts and bogus news stories ahead of upcoming elections.

Inside the room are dozens of employees staring intently at their monitors while data streams across giant dashboards. On the walls are posters of the sort Facebook frequently uses to caution or exhort its employees. One reads, Nothing at Facebook is somebody elses problem.

That motto might strike some as ironic, given that the war room was created to counter threats that almost no one at the company, least of all CEO Mark Zuckerberg, took seriously just two years ago and which the companys critics now believe pose a threat to democracy.

Days after President Donald Trumps surprise victory, Zuckerberg brushed off assertions that the outcome had been influenced by fictional news stories on Facebook, calling the idea pretty crazy.

But Facebooks blase attitude shifted as criticism of the company mounted in Congress and elsewhere. Later that year, it acknowledged having run thousands of ads promoting false information placed by Russian agents. Zuckerberg eventually made fixing Facebook his personal challenge for 2018.

The war room is a major part of Facebooks ongoing repairs. Its technology draws upon the artificial-intelligence system Facebook has been using to help identify inauthentic posts and user behavior. Facebook provided a tightly controlled glimpse at its war room to The Associated Press and other media ahead of the second round of presidential elections in Brazil on Oct. 28 and the U.S. midterm elections on Nov. 6.

There is no substitute for physical, real-world interaction, said Samidh Chakrabarti, Facebooks director of elections and civic engagement. The primary thing we have learned is just how effective it is to have people in the same room all together.

More than 20 different teams now coordinate the efforts of more than 20,000 people mostly contractors devoted to blocking fake accounts and fictional news and stopping other abuses on Facebook and its other services. As part of the crackdown, Facebook also has hired fact checkers, including The Associated Press, to vet new stories posted on its social network.

Facebook credits its war room and other stepped-up patrolling efforts for booting 1.3 billion fake accounts over the past year and jettisoning hundreds of pages set up by foreign governments and other agents looking to create misc...


Cruz called 'Lyin' Ted' and O'Rourke branded 'extreme' as debate sinks to insults and barbs "IndyWatch Feed World"

Ahead of next month's crucial midterm elections, Texas Senator Ted Cruz (R) squared up against challenger Rep. Beto O'Rourke (D) as the two political opposites largely played to their own crowds. The candidates sparred over healthcare, tax cuts and border security, in the final debate of a race that has captured the nation's attention and, for O'Rourke, has drawn a record-breaking $38 million in donations in just three months, many of these from out-of-state supporters. In San Antonio on Tuesday night, O'Rourke struck a combative tone, and tried to paint Cruz as a self-serving elitist, beholden to corporate interests. When Cruz implied that O'Rourke had at one point supported a $10-per-barrel oil tax, O'Rourke denied this, and referenced one of President Trump's 2016 nicknames for Cruz, perhaps the only time the punk-rocking, skateboarding Democrat will ever give Trump credit.

Paul Greengrasss 22 July: Neo-fascist mass murder in Norway

18 October 2018

Written, directed and produced by Paul Greengrass

The Netflix fiction feature 22 July, written, directed and produced by veteran British filmmaker Paul Greengrass, recreates the horrific massacre in Norway on July 22, 2011, during which 77 people were killed in a neo-fascist terrorist attack. The English-language movie features an all-Norwegian cast and crew.

Greengrass specializes in dramatizing traumatic episodes where masses of people undergo violent attack, either by government forces or terrorists. He is perhaps best known for his 2002 docudrama, Bloody Sunday, about the 1972 shooting of 13 unarmed civil rights demonstrators by British soldiers in Londonderry, Northern Ireland. Omagh (2004), a television film he co-produced and co-wrote, dealt with the 1998 bombing carried out in Northern Ireland by the Real Irish Republican Army, which killed 29 people.

Dastageri said provincial intelligence chief Abdul Mohmin also died inside the governors sprawling residence where the attack occurred.

Three Americans a service member and two civilian workers were wounded in the shooting, said U.S. Col. Knut Peters, a spokesman for NATO troops in Afghanistan. Their conditions were not immediately known.

Gen. Miller is unhurt, said Peters. Miller is the commander of U.S. and NATO troops in Afghanistan.

It was members of Wesas elite guard unit who turned their guns on their colleagues during a high-level security meeting ahead of Saturdays parliamentary elections.

Khalid Pashtun, a member of parliament from the province, said Afghan Security Forces cordoned off the area and a U.S. military helicopter circled overhead as a gun battle that began at 3 p.m. local time raged on for more than one hour.

Peters said initial reports indicate one of the original attackers is dead. He had no further information.

In a telephone interview, the spokesman for the Taliban in Afghanistans southern region, Qari Yousuf Ahmadi, said the Taliban carried out the attack. He said Gen. Miller was the target and said Raziq, the governor and the intelligence chief were killed.

Pashtun said an Afghan military corps commander was also among the dead, although he didnt name him.

An Interior Ministry official speaking on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the media said Raziq rarely visited the governors residence and was meticulous about his own security.

Razik was a particularly powerful figure in southern Kandahar and a close U.S. ally despite widespread allegations of corruption. He ruled in Kandahar, the former Taliban heartland, with an iron fist and had survived several attempts to kill him, including one last year that resulted in the death of five diplomats from the United Arab Emirates.

Security has been steadily deteriorating in Afghanistan with increasingly brazen attacks being carried out by insurgents and Afghanistans security forces have been on high alert ahead of Saturdays elections.

With USB-C, Even Plugging In Can Set You Up To Be Hacked "IndyWatch Feed World"

Jeremy Straub, North Dakota State University

Plugging in the power or at least what you think is power to a USB-C powered laptop can connect your computer, and the valuable personal data on it, directly to hackers. Your personal financial information, passwords and documents stored on the laptop could help a cybercriminal steal your identity. The laptop may even be used to attack your employers computers and network.

The European Union is already moving to require all smartphones be compatible with USB-C power adapters itself a move that endangers users privacy. If the EU made a similar standard for laptop computers, it would threaten to make the problem worse, by increasing the number of people vulnerable to what is basically the digital equivalent of pick-pocketing.

From mobile phones to laptops

Public phone chargers and USB ports can be a threat to mobile phones, if they are modified to attack them....

Putin compares Khashoggi case to Skripal poisoning, asks why Russia condemned despite lack of proof "IndyWatch Feed World"

Russian President Vladimir Putin has contrasted the world's response to the disappearance of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi with its response to the poisoning of ex-Russian spy Sergei Skripal, citing lack of proof in both cases. Speaking at the annual Valdai Discussion Club in Sochi, Putin said that despite a lack of evidence proving Russian involvement in the poisoning of Skripal and his daughter Yulia in March, punitive actions were immediately taken against Moscow. In contrast, he said, that did not happen with Riyadh following Khashoggi's disappearance. "There's no proof in regards to Russia, but steps are taken. Here, people say that a murder happened in Istanbul, but no steps are taken. People need to figure out a single approach to these kinds of problems," Putin said. Khashoggi, a journalist who wrote columns that were critical of the Saudi kingdom for the Washington Post, disappeared on October 2 when he entered the Saudi consulate in Istanbul to obtain documents for his...

Florida cops struggle to stop armed looters as hurricane Michael death toll reaches 33 "IndyWatch Feed World"

Leaving a trail of devastation and a rising death toll across the southern coast of US, hurricane Michael has created a fertile ground for armed looters who, despite police efforts, continue to ransack homes and businesses. A week after the third-most intense Atlantic hurricane on record slammed the Gulf of Mexico coast, authorities are still unable to fully restore power to affected areas or to manage looters who have been pillaging destroyed buildings. The problem is the most severe along the Florida panhandle, particularly in the cities of Panama City and Mexico Beach which suffered the worst from Michael, a Category 4 storm.


Arab League prepares to resume ties with Damascus as Idlib operation postponed again "IndyWatch Feed World"

The October 15 deadline agreed to by Turkey, Russia and Iran for Turkey to evacuate all heavy weapons and jihadist groups along a 15-20 km demilitarised demarcation line around Idlib and its rural area, including rural Latakia, has come and gone. Nevertheless, despite serious Turkish pressure on jihadists to leave Syria or move out of the demilitarised zone to spare Idlib an imminent attack by the Syrian Army and Russia, jihadists remain in their barracks. All the same, Damascus and Moscow consider the time unpropitious for a large attack on the city. Thus, a further delay has been accorded to Turkey to continue its efforts. Any attack on Idlib, the first US line of defence in Syria, has been postponed. But why is this the USA's first line of defence in Syria? Simply because Syria has been freed and only the regions of the northern cities of Idlib and al-Hasaka (and a small part of Deir-ezzour east of the Euphrates) are still occupied. In September, Russia, Iran and Syria decided...


In Latest Fit of Censorship, Facebook Deletes Video Detailing Brutal Legacy of Christopher Columbus "IndyWatch Feed World"

With nothing but a vague violation of community standards note and offering no ability to appeal the decision, Facebook has once again blocked a piece of critical journalismthis time a short documentary video depicting the brutal legacy of Christopher Columbusfrom its global online platform.

Monbiots piece of video journalism was about the airbrushing of history; therefore, there is a great irony in the fact it has now been airbrushed from their platform. Yannis Mendez, Double Down News

The short videoproduced by Double Down Newsand titled The true legacy of Christopher Columbus: Western Civilisationfeatures author and journalist George Monbiot recounting the infamous European explorers history of subjugation and brutalization of the Indigenous people he encountered when he arrived in the so-called New World in the late 15th Century.

After being up for more than a week, and raking up more than 900,000 views, DNN co-founder Yannis Mendez says the video, a serious piece of historical journalism, was deleted by Facebook on Tuesday without warning, a specific reason, or any avenue of recourse.

In the piece, Mendez explains, Monbiot recounts the horrors of history in vivid detail. Therefore, at times, we understand the film may have been uncomfortable for some to watch. A number of visuals used, taken from the film 1492 and historical documentary footage, were graphic in nature. Facebook could have opted to put a warning screen on the video, which we would of had no problem with.

As of this writing, the video remains deleted from Facebookit was originally posted at this linkand its producers have been given no further explanation for why it was taken down. The video remains available on YouTube.

In response to its deletion by Facebook, DDN, Monbiot and others appealed for people to speak out against Facebooks censorship and demanded the video be restored:

Get It Together, People

Source: Paul Stramer | By Anna Von Reitz

I can't believe some of the nonsense I am hearing. Cart in front of the horse doesn't begin to describe it.

For beginners, people living as British Territorial "inhabitants" have no standing, right, or power to organize anything pretending to represent this country.

We are here, present, acting for ourselves now.

No "representatives" needed, thanks.

This is the reason why you all have to make your declarations of political status and move your Good Name back onto the land jurisdiction of this country officially BEFORE you can set up and operate a lawful Jural Assembly.

British Territorial "inhabitants" function as "persons" and when they set up a court they act as a "Jural Society". Okay? Two different groups, two different political statuses, two different jurisdictions.

They occupy a part of the sea jurisdiction and the rest of us, the "people" as opposed to the "persons" occupy the land.

Without land, you don't have a country.

Without a country, you have nothing to stand upon, therefore, you have "no standing".

Without land, you are just a "legal fiction entity"--- a "person", a business, a THING -- with no port to call home, no Public Law, and no way to operate effectively in your own best interest....

Top ranking Treasury employee charged with leaking Trump team financial info arrested with flash drive in hand "IndyWatch Feed World"

The top Treasury Department employee who was charged Wednesday with leaking confidential financial documents pertaining to former Trump officials was apprehended the previous evening with a flash drive containing the allegedly pilfered information in her hand, prosecutors said in court papers. The dramatic arrest late Tuesday came on the heels of other high-profile, leak-related prosecutions under the Trump administration, which has pledged to go on the offensive against leakers that the president has called "traitors and cowards." Natalie Mayflower Sours Edwards, 40, a senior official at the department's Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN), is accused of illegally giving a reporter bank reports documenting several suspicious financial transactions, known as Suspicious Activity Reports ("SARs"), from October 2017 to the present.

Anti-Semitism as a Sword: As Far Right Storm Clouds Gather, False and Trivial Charges Ignore the Real Threat "IndyWatch Feed World"

LONDON (Opinion) There is nothing in this series of articles to deny that anti-Semitism is a real threat. On the contrary, the point is to expose the cheap use of the anti-Semitism card in the face of a real menace to society. Overused and undeserved allegations of anti-Semitism only endanger Jews like me should the real dangers of anti-Semitism rise again.

We are seeing Neo-Nazis rise in Ukraine, the Baltics, and even Germany. Ultranationalist far-right parties demonize all who stand in their way and, if they can get away with it, have a willingness to use violence on those who oppose them. Should their rise continue, anti-Semitism will follow. A real, violent form of anti-Semitism.

This may leave a great many people to wonder why is there such intolerance of criticism of Israel when violence and oppression, most worryingly on a state level, appear to be returning. Such hate groups typically target vulnerable, minority populations in their rise to power. That is the history and the fundamental fear of anti-Semitism. Not criticism of Israel.

While this clear and present danger is rising, false allegations of anti-Semitism are being used to silence critics of Israel and condemn politicians who might support the victims of Israels oppression. Thus the misuse of charges of anti-Semitism is coming exactly at the time when threats from real and violent anti-Semites are rising.


Rise of far-right and Nazi parties

The threat of anti-Semitism has always been based upon a form of xenophobia a sense that Jews are somehow outsiders, even if their countries are the only homes they have ever known. With the rise of far-right parties using refugees as a scapegoat, will anti-Semitism be far behind?

Putin: Kerch college shooting a 'result of globalization' - inspired by the American template "IndyWatch Feed World"

The mass shooting which took place in Crimea on Wednesday is an unfortunate result of globalization and a collective failure to adapt to it, Russian President Vladimir Putin has said. The Russian president suggested that the suspected shooter, who killed 20 people in a polytechnic college in Kerch, where he himself studied, was inspired by similar sprees of violence in the United States. "Strange as it seems, it's a result of globalization. There are entire communities dedicated to it in the social media online. It all started with well-known tragedies in schools in the US. Young mentally unstable people invent false heroes for themselves," Russian leader said as he attended a Valdai Club plenary session in the Russian southern city of Sochi.

Migrant Families Face Month in Detention, Despite Trump Administration Promises "IndyWatch Feed World"

Families separated by border officials earlier this year won a second chance to ask for asylum under an agreement reached in federal court last month, and a Justice Department lawyer said those interviews would get underway soon.

But lawyers for the families say the government has backed off that pledge and now plans to delay those asylum screenings until at least mid-November.

The families covered by the settlement include parents who failed their initial asylum screenings while they were separated from their children earlier this year and forced to make their case in the midst of extreme trauma.

As part of an agreement to close legal challenges from these families, the government agreed to grant them new interviews now that theyve been reunited. Now it wants them to wait. For some, that means spending another month in detention.

Many of the families are free on bond, but at least 60 of the parents and children remain in detention after months. If they want a second chance at asylum, theyll have to spend more weeks locked up, waiting for the government to act on a deal it agreed to in September.

When lawyers on both sides first presented the settlement, U.S. District Judge Dana Sabraw asked whether theyd be willing to act on the agreement right away. Justice Department attorney Scott Stewart said yes.

Our point of view is we can get moving on this, Stewart said. The government is looking to make sure, wherever it can, to make things go swiftly.

The settlement wont be final until Sabraw signs off at a hearing set for Nov. 15 in San Diego. But he told the lawyers not to wait until then to start the new asylum interviews.

We ought to start that right away, Sabraw said.

But the families lawyers recently told the court the Justice Department had reneged.

According to an emergency motion filed Wednesday, Stewart wrote in an email that the government will not move forward with implementing the settlement until the deal is finished. In other words, the Trump administration has decided to delay the new screenings for at least another month until the deal is finalized.

Its very surprising that they want to wait, said Sirine Shebaya, a senior staff attorney for Muslim Advocates who represents parents in the case. This is not a class-action that involves monetary damages or any of the things that usually create c...

The Dangers Coming From Our Household Items That The Government Has Ignored "IndyWatch Feed World"

By Mayuk Saha

Perfluoroalkyl substances once felt like magic. Liquids and stains didnt stick to them and so companies were able to use these chemicals to make Teflon and cleaning materials. Slowly their use spread to many household items like furniture, utensils and rugs. Their use even extends to the foam found in fire extinguishers.

However, it was soon discovered that when concentrated, these substances had the potential to be toxic if they were consumed. Studies proved that they entered the circulatory system of labourers in factories and the people residing in the surround areas. The chemicals were also found to be connected to certain kinds of cancer and congenital disabilities as NCBI reports.

Recently, drinking water was tested and analyzed and the results proved that agencies like the EPA and the Defence Department have hidden information about the true dangers that PFAs can cause. A lot of people are probably already suffering from exposure to toxic concentrations than have come to light. The government has downplayed the problem and intentionally so by manipulating test results to reveal only a handful of chemicals and to hide higher concentrations of chemicals that are poisonous. Tests that could detect other harmful substances were not conducted at all (source).

A presentation by one of EPAs contractors shows that there the amount of PFAs in drinking water is twenty times more than what was published by the EPA. Using these figures, the Environmental Working Group has calculated that more than a hundred million Americans are risking exposure to these chemicals.
Earlier testing, though not as advanced, did point out that drinking water in over thirty states was contaminated. The Department of Defence believed that drinking water used in many military areas had su...

Jon Rappoport -- Industrial-Strength Scare-Propaganda: Mind Control "IndyWatch Feed World"

Industrial-strength scare-propaganda: mind control

From time to time, I reprint my interview with Dr. Barbara Starfield. Each time I try to write a new introduction.

In this case, I'll highlight the arbitrary nature of scare-propaganda. And by arbitrary, I mean "has a covert agenda."

For instance, suppose you learned that a single source in the US, every year, like clockwork, kills 225,000 people. That would be 2.25 million killings per decade.

Wouldn't you think we'd hear about it? Wouldn't public health agencies make a big deal about it? Wouldn't they call it an epidemic?

After all, we supposedly have a handful of "Ebola cases" in the US, and the media are hyping this "fact" to the skies.

Suppose they had far, far bigger numbers to work with? Suppose they had 225,000 deaths, not just once, but every year, as the raw material for their stories?

Suppose they could say, "We now have 225,000 deaths in the US as a result of Ebola, and the authorities are quite sure that next year, and the year after that, and every year we're going to have 225,000 more."

Can you imagine the reaction at every level of society? The insane panic? The madness in the streets? The attacks against institutions tasked with preventing such a cataclysm? The collapse of the stock market and the healthcare system? The predictions of the end of the world? The churches on roaring business highs?

On July 26, 2000, the Journal of the American Medical Association published Dr. Barbara Starfield's review, "Is US health really the best in the world?"

In it, Starfield, who was a respected public health expert working at the Johns Hopkins School of Public Health, stated that:

* The US medical system kills 225,000 Americans a year.

* 106,000 deaths per year from FDA-approved medical drugs.

No Hate or Fear Mongering Here

I don't hate monger or fear monger. I don't feel either one of those emotions and it is certainly not my intention to engender them.

My point is to wake people up.

They have fallen asleep on a railroad track, so the fear in the situation isn't caused by me grabbing them by the shoulder and saying. "Hey, Buddy, you gotta move!"

The fear is caused by the approaching train and the whistle blowing in the background.

Many people--millions of people worldwide-- are hearing what I am saying, but they are suffering cognitive dissonance.

I am telling them that they have to reclaim their Good Name and estate and have to declare their political status on the public record to protect themselves and their assets--- and they say, "What? I am Jane Marie Parker, an American from Point Hope, Indiana. Isn't that self-evident???"

It should be, but it is not. Others have made sure to muddy the water, so that they can take advantage of you and steal from you, Jane Marie.

But the banks are still standing there stonewalling, more than three years later.

And Mr. Trump is still being forced to play patty-cake with Rothschild instead of being paid directly.

The seventh anniversary of the killing of the Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi on October 20, 2011 provides us with an opportunity to reassess those dramatic events which caused a major step backwards in the country's development. With the fall of its leader, the country's power hierarchy collapsed, leading to the disintegration of both government authorities and the armed forces. The "triumph of the February 17th Revolution and the fall of the dictatorship" was initially greeted with euphoria, but this mood was not enough to prevent the country from falling apart. The victors, who had seized power with the support of NATO and an unlikely coalition of various armed groups, were unable to prevent the country's descent into chaos. That coalition split apart in 2014, and the country has effectively been split in two ever since. There are now two opposed "territories", one headed by Tripoli in the west of Libya, the other headed by Tobruk, in the east. Each has its own government,...


This Prominent Sanctuary City Is Being Sabotaged From Within "IndyWatch Feed World"

This story was co-published with the Philadelphia Inquirer.

A small, impish grin spread across Jeff Sessions face. It was a sun-drenched June afternoon in Scranton, a northeastern Pennsylvania town a few generations removed from its coal-mining heyday, and the U.S. attorney general was ensconced in a window-lined university hall, preaching to cops, prosecutors and police cadets about the importance of President Donald Trumps war on illegal immigration. Outside, protesters jeered.

Sanctuary cities, Sessions said, reject the law, reward criminals and put U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers in peril. Then he smiled and began attacking Jim Kenney, Philadelphias Democratic mayor.

Philadelphia had emerged as one of the largest thorns in the Trump administrations side. It wore its sanctuary reputation like a badge of honor, and its leaders, including Kenney and District Attorney Larry Krasner, continued to find creative ways to outmaneuver ICEs enforcement efforts. Just a week earlier, Philadelphia won a federal lawsuit that Kenney filed against the Department of Justice. At risk had been a $1.6 million law enforcement grant, and the critical question of whether Philadelphia and, by implication, cities like New York, Chicago and San Francisco could limit cooperation with ICE without being penalized by the federal government.

The attorney general told his audience that hed seen a video of Kenney dancing giddily in the wake of the court victory. He is celebrating keeping criminals in Philadelphia that by law should be deported, Sessions said. But it was worse than that; cities like Philadelphia, he said, send a message to criminals: Stay here, and we will protect you. That directly attracts more criminals.

Kenney saw his administrations role in a more noble light. By wielding policy to fight back against Trump and ICE, the citys leaders believed they were sending an important message: Immigrants could trust the city and feel comfortable reporting crimes.

Philadelphias violent crime rate has fallen by more than 17 percent, to levels not seen in decades, since it became a sanctuary city in 2014.

To Kenney, Sessions criticism of so-called sanctuary cities and counties, which had shot up to more than 700 since Trump took office, were less about public safety and more about pandering to anti-immigrant voters. Trump and Sessions and those folks rule by division and fear, by putting out intentionally wrong views of who people are and what they are, and what they aspire to be, Kenney said in an interview. Trump wants to use Philadelphia to play to the heartland of people who are scared of anyone thats a different color than them.

This is the immigration debate most people are familiar with, writ large: each side seei...


Still no accountability after UBC #MeToo scandal ruined professor's career and reputation with false sexual assault allegations "IndyWatch Feed World"

Three years ago, the University of British Columbia suspended novelist Steven Galloway, who then chaired UBC's creative writing program, following explosive allegations that he had sexually assaulted a UBC student. In response, a group of Canadian writers signed on to a movement called UBC Accountable, which highlighted the lack of due process in the proceedings against Galloway. While some members of the Canadian literary community vilified #ubcaccountable as an insult to rape victims, the movement was vindicated when the full facts of Galloway's case became widely known. Specifically, an internal investigation by a retired provincial supreme court judge concluded that Galloway hadn't sexually assaulted anyone. Her report, whose contents were detailed in an exhaustive Quillette investigative report, suggested that the principal complainants were either confused or malicious fantabulists. Earlier this year, the Vancouver-based university was required to pay Galloway $167,000 in the...


Killings in Kandahar: Implications "IndyWatch Feed World"

The news out of Kandahar is pretty awful: the top leadership of the province was killed in an apparent attempt to kill General Austin Miller, the commander of US and NATO forces in the country.  There is not many details, but the WashPost account is suggestive of some key dynamics and challenges.

First, it sounds like the killer was apparently part of the provincial governors security team.  Not great.  It does seem like the primary threat in Kandahar to elites are their security teams, as I seem to remember it was also a member of Ahmed Wali Karzais security team that killed him.

Second, and, more importantly, the focus is on Abdul Razik the police chief of Kandahar.  Why?  Because (a) the inability to build institutions meant that the US, Canada and the rest of NATO bet on individuals.  That if we had the right individuals in place, we can manage things and even perhaps improve them.  The story focuses on Raziks own networks and his own capabilities, not that of his office.  That he is hard to replacebecause we have relied on individuals.  And, yes, individuals come and go.

Third, the focus is on the police chief, not the governor.

Among those reported killed in the attack inside the governors compound
in southern Kandahar province were the countrys top police general, Abdul Raziq, who was seen as the most powerful man in southern Afghanistan.

That says something about how little progress has been madethat it is still very much about who controls force, not who governs.  If progress had been made, the focus would be more on the political sidethe assassination of a governor.  If we think about this happening in most other places, wouldnt we note the political leader first and foremost?

Fourth, um, about Razik, the discussion of his strengths reflects some desperation on the part of the outsiders:

Amrulleh Saleh, a former Afghan national intelligence chief, tweeted that Abdul Razik had been an architect of stability in Kandahar who had established deep political networks in
support of the government. This is a pan-Afghan loss, he wrote.
Abdul Razik, a lieutenant general in the Afghan National Police, was a controversial official who had been repeatedly accused of torturing detainees and other abuses during his rise to power in Kandahar. At the same time, he earned a r...


Russia liquidates more of its US debt holdings & invests money in gold "IndyWatch Feed World"

The Central Bank of Russia has continued getting rid of US Treasury bonds in August. The share of Russian investments in American debt is getting close to zero. Russian investments in US securities as of August have fallen to just $14 billion. Back in 2011, Russia was one of the largest holders of US debt with a $180 billion investment. The reason is not only about politics and US sanctions against Russia, a broker at Otkritie bank Timur Nigmatullin told RIA Novosti. The US Federal Reserve is hiking interest rates, which makes American bonds cheaper, he said. "Russia has almost dropped out of the list of holders of US government debt, being the 54th largest holder."


Khashoggi Murder Suspect Dies in Suspicious Car Accident "IndyWatch Feed World"

A 31-year-old lieutenant in the Saudi Royal Air Force said to have participated in the killing of Saudi writer Jamal Khashoggi died in a suspicious car accident in Riyadh, according to Turkish media.

Mashal Saad al-Bostani was reportedly on a 15-man hit squad dispatched to Saudi Arabias Istanbul Consulate in Turkey on October 2 during Khashoggis visit, before the team quickly left the country, according to daily Yeni afak.

Albostani entered Turkey at 1:45 a.m. local time (2245GMT). He stayed at the Wyndham Grand Hotel and left the country at 9:46 p.m. local time (1846GMT) on a private jet which belonged to the Sky Prime Aviation company. Yeni afak

Bostanis alleged role in the murder of the Saudi journalist are unclear, as are details of the traffic accident in Riyadh prompting accusations of a cover up by those who orchestrated the Khashoggi hit. Meanwhile, a columnist for Turkeys Daily Hrriyet wrote on Thursday that Mohammad al Otaibi, Saudi Arabias Istanbul consul-general, would be the next execution.

Turkish daily Yeni afak reported Oct. 17 that Al-Otaibis voice could be heard in one of the recordings, which Turkish authorities are believed to have, of Khashoggis interrogation at the consulate.

According to the report, after Al-Otaibi told the interrogators to do it somewhere else outside or I will be in trouble, he was told to shut up if you want to live when you are back in Saudi Arabia.

Al-Otaibi returned to Saudi Arabia on Oct. 16 before his residence in Istanbul was searched by police for more than eight hours on Oct. 17 and Oct. 18. Daily Hrriyet

North and South Korea agree to reconnect rail and road links - US triggered by too much peace "IndyWatch Feed World"

Monday talks between North and South Korea ended with new historic agreements toward ending nearly 70 years of war. This includes pledges to reconnect roads between the two nations, and rail lines. 65 years of armistice has meant a demilitarized zone separating the nations, and heavy military presences on either side. As diplomatic progress continues, the re-connection of transportation underscores how quickly ties could be normalized. This is good news for everybody, except apparently the Trump Administration, which is expressing "concern" about the rate of progress being made in Korean diplomacy, interfering with US plans to keep sanctions against North Korea tightly in place. South Korea's President Moon has been increasingly open in his disagreement with the US on the matter, saying North Korea deserves some rewards for its progress made toward denuclearization.


Scientists find stem cell proliferation is controlled directly by the nervous system "IndyWatch Feed World"

Somatic stem cells are microscopic workhorses, constantly regenerating cells throughout the body: skin and the lining of the intestine, for example. And to University of Illinois neuroscientists, they represent untapped potential. "If we could find a way to target and control stem cell proliferation in the body, there could be potential medical benefits, including turning off the proliferation of cancer stem cells or inducing proliferation of somatic stem cells where we want to grow tissue," says Elizabeth Davis, doctoral researcher in the Neuroscience Program at U of I and lead author of a study that demonstrates, for the first time, that stem cell proliferation is directly controlled by the autonomic nervous system (ANS). The ANS controls all of our unconscious functions: breathing, blood flow, digestion, and so forth. Its two major networks of nerve fibers run from the brain through the entire body, with neurons reaching into nearly every organ. These neurons release chemicals...

If any nation decides to attack Russia with nuclear weapons, it may end life on Earth; but unlike the aggressors, the Russians are sure to go to heaven, President Vladimir Putin has said. "Any aggressor should know that retribution will be inevitable and he will be destroyed. And since we will be the victims of his aggression, we will be going to heaven as martyrs. They will simply drop dead, won't even have time to repent," Putin said during a session of the Valdai Club in Sochi. He added that Russia's nuclear forces are not tailored for a pre-emptive strike, and exist as a second-strike capability meant to deter an attack by a foreign nation.

How to Continue Loving Yourself, Even Through Cancer Or Any Other Horrifying Diagnosis "IndyWatch Feed World"

We all struggle with loving ourselves at least sometimes. Whether you are someone that tries to pay attention to self-care or not there is no denying that sometimes no matter what we try we end up lacking.

During times of struggle, especially when you have been diagnosed with a terminal disease, it may seem difficult to love yourself. Things like this turn the whole world upside down and leave us all feeling hopeless. Sadly, instead of finding the ability to love ourselves, those who have been diagnosed with a terrifying disease turn to the stages of grief.

When it comes to working on bringing that love back and building ourselves up it isnt going to be easy. These things might not be enough to make it all better but they will help you to remember to love yourself and care for your being. These are things that we tend to forget to do when tensions rise and whether you want them to or not in situations like mentioned above tensions will rise.

10 Ways To Show Yourself Love When Facing A Horrifying Diagnosis:

1. Talk about it.

Dont be the kind of person to pretend everything is alright. The people you care the most about deserve to know what is going on. Talking about it brings more healing than you might assume.

2. Trust your support system.

Trust the people who care the most about you. You do not have to hold the weight of this burden on your own. You can rely on them for more than you think.

3. Give yourself a break.

If you need a break, take one. Do not try to overdo yourself. While you can still most likely do the things you did before there is no shame in stopping to breathe for a moment.

4. Change your diet.

Change your diet by eating healthier and more healing foods. The things we put into our bodies make a difference in how we feel. While you might not notice a change overnight you will see it as time goes by.

5. Do things that make you happy.

Go have fun while you can. Sure, you shouldnt be marking everything off of your bucket list just yet but there is never a bad time to go out and enjoy yourself. If you want to do something new dont hesitate.

6. Dont be too hard on yourself.

Do not be too hard on yourself. Things like this are never easy and they happen to some of the most unexpected people. Just because it seems like the end of the world doesnt mean that it is.

7. Let go of anger.

Dont be angry at yourself or others. Sometimes shit happens and we dont understand why. You can make it through whatever life has put in yo...

Ex-USA Gymnastics president arrested for 'tampering with Nassar evidence' "IndyWatch Feed World"

The former head of USA Gymnastics Steve Penny has been arrested for allegedly tampering with evidence related to the notorious Larry Nassar sexual abuse case. Penny was detained on a warrant after a Texas grand jury alleged that he had removed documents related to Nassar's illegal actions from Karolyi Ranch - the training center of USA Gymnastics. The indictment states that Penny ordered the papers - whose whereabouts are still unknown - to be replaced after learning that investigators intended to check the ranch, which was being operated by USA Gymnastics. "The indictment further alleges that the removal of the documents was done for the purpose of impairing the ongoing investigation by destroying or hiding the documents," the US Marshals said in a press release.


Nature By Numbers: Stunning Animation of the Fibonacci Sequence Will Take Your Breath Away "IndyWatch Feed World"

Sacred Geometry and the Fibonacci sequence can be quite confusing to some people but once you really dive in things are far more fascinating than others realize. The more time you take to really learn about these things the more at one with the universe you will feel.

For those who do not know, the Fibonacci sequence is a series of numbers in which each number is the sum of the two preceding numbers. This can be as simple or as complicated as you want it to be. When we make squares with those numbers we get a very nice spiral that can be found in everything.

The Fibonacci spiral looks exactly like a nautilus shell and most things even viewed from a distance appear to look similar. The Fibonacci sequence is quite prominent in nature. Spirals of this stature are the most common galaxy shape and even in microscopic places are still present.

The more you delve into the world of sacred geometry and things of the sort the more you will notice them in nature. Nature and numbers have so much in common. You cannot have one without the other.

Human hair testing finds high levels of glyphosate "IndyWatch Feed World"

A new testing program organized by The Detox Project in coordination with Kudzu Science, has released the first ever results for glyphosate levels in human hair, in an extraordinary announcement on Wednesday. The unique project, which began in July 2018, has already discovered the world's most used herbicide, glyphosate, in a number of hair samples at over 66 parts per billion (ppb), which is a much higher level than the average urine level of 3 ppb reported by the University of California San Francisco in 2016. The main metabolite of glyphosate, AMPA, was also found in some of the hair samples at even higher levels than glyphosate itself.


What Depression Actually Looks Like Isnt Just Being Sad, Or Laying Around "IndyWatch Feed World"

Depression is not a one size fits all disease, and it isnt just feeling sad. Instead, it is a rather complex diagnosis that can be revealed by many different characteristics.

What depression might look like for one person might not be the same for another. While many assume that those suffering from depression are sad, hopeless, lazy people who refuse to get out of bed most function quite properly within reason. Sometimes depression makes it impossible to get out of bed but other times it might just make a person feel as though theyre falling apart on the inside while everything looks normal on the outside.

You might not ever see a single tear fall from their face but it doesnt mean theyre not screaming for help and crying for this to stop. Depression can look like a lot of different things and depending on the person you might not even see it until it is far too late. Depression does not come in a one size fits all option. It is something that touches us in a unique way each time.

Just because you dont see it doesnt mean it isnt there. Some people are just really good at putting on their masks and acting the way that they think they are supposed to. Depressed people are often those come across as the happiest. They tend to be the people that go out of their way to help others.

Dont ever assume you can spot depression, its not that simple. While you might be able to spot a change, that change could mean anything. Depression is might keep some people in bed but it wont keep them all there. The truth is, even when someone is bursting at the seams most of us wont look close enough to notice.

Western provocation, the prospect of WWIII, and China's closer stance with Russia are just some of the topics that Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov has spoken about with RT France. "We will be ready for larger-scale provocations too. But our answer is very simple - if they talk to us through the media, we will respond through the media too, but specifically and in a correct manner," Lavrov said, answering questions from RT France, Paris Match and Le Figaro. Going further, he said a third world war is an unimaginable scenario, noting that "everybody would be sane enough not to let it happen." However, an aggravating factor is the absence of any dialogue between the Russian military and NATO.


Sanders and Warren Demand Answers on Amazons Union Busting "IndyWatch Feed World"

After a leaked training video provided a rare glimpse into the aggressive tactics Amazon deploys to prevent its workers from organizing and bargaining for better working conditions, Sens. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) and Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) sent a letter to CEO Jeff Bezos on Wednesday expressing alarm at his trillion-dollar companys potentially illegal anti-union behavior and demanding a copy of the full video.

It is important to recognize that workers rights do not stop at the minimum wage, and raising the pay of your lowest-paid workers, while important, does not give you a free pass to engage in potentially illegal anti-union behavior, the senators wrote, referencing Amazons recent decision to raise the minimum wage of its U.S. employees to $15 an hour in the face of massive grassroots pressure.

It is also important to note that, absent a union, Amazon remains free to unilaterally cancel the increase or make other cuts to compensation, Sanders and Warren continued. Unfortunately, Amazons recent conduct provides a telling example: immediately after announcing the wage increase, Amazon cut bonuses and eliminated stock options for warehouse workers.

As Common Dreams reported last month, the 45-minute training videowhich was distributed to managers at the Amazon-owned Whole Foodsinstructed company leaders on how to spot early warning signs of potential unionization efforts among employees.

Two such warning signs, according to Amazons video, are workers suddenly hanging out together and using union words like living wage.

Psychopath Netanyahu vows "large-scale military activity" against Gaza following alleged attacks by Hamas "IndyWatch Feed World"

Israel's Prime Minister has explicitly warned Hamas that the IDF is edging closer to yet another full-blown military operation against the Gaza strip to put an end to cross-border violence. Tel Aviv's patience appears to be running extremely thin from the seven months of violence along the Israeli-Gaza border. The Jewish nation is also uncompromising in its commitment to prevent Palestinian boats sailing up to the maritime boundary between Israel and the coastal enclave and promised to act unless Hamas stops launching rockets and incendiary balloons that threaten Israeli civilians.

"Nicole Krausss Beautiful Letter to Van Gogh on Fear, Bravery,
 and How to Break the Loop of Our Destructive Patterns"
by Maria Popova

Feeling helpless and confused in the face of random, unpatterned events, we seek to order them and, in so doing, gain a sense of control over them, the great psychiatrist Irvin D. Yalom wrote in his magnificent meditation on uncertainty and our search for meaning. But as our terror of losing control compels us to grasp for order and certainty, we all too often end up creating patterns that ultimately dont serve us, then repeat those patterns under the illusion of control. These patterns of belief - about who we are, about who others are, about how the world works - come to shape our behavior, which in turn shapes our reality, creating a loop that calls to mind physicist David Bohms enduring wisdom: Reality is what we take to be true. What we take to be true is what we believe What we believe determines what we take to be true.

To keep repeating a baleful pattern without recognizing that we are caught in its loop is one of lifes greatest tragedies; to recognize it but feel helpless in breaking it is one of our greatest trials; to transcend the fear of uncertainty, which undergirds all such patterns of belief and behavior, is a supreme triumph.

That triumphant transcendence of the pattern is what novelist Nicole Krauss explores in an exquisite response to Vincent van Gogh...


Northern Iowa farmers' crops covered in snow "IndyWatch Feed World"

Some farmers in northern Iowa are finally getting back into their fields this week. Monday's USDA crop report showed Iowa's soybean harvest at 19-percent, 11 days behind the average. On Tuesday, April Hemmes - who farms near Hampton - said she was still waiting to start harvesting soybeans. The harvest was halted this month by heavy rains that turned fields into a muddy mess. Hemmes said her soybeans were coated with two inches heavy, wet snow on Sunday. It's the wettest year she's experienced in 33 years of farming and Hemmes said there's some pod-splitting taking place. According to the USDA, the 19-percent soybean harvest is the smallest mid-October harvest percentage for Iowa since records began, and the lowest number among the major soybean producing states. Hemmes said, earlier this year, she was excited about her potential soybean yield.

Andrew Garfield: 2018 Mid-Term Warning for Republicans II "IndyWatch Feed World"

Andrew Garfield

Commenting on the article you sent, Americans Strongly Dislike PC Culture:

I think the numbers on the Conservative/Trump base at 25% of the electorate is about right. As is the number for the hard left. But this study strongly smacks of a group of academics with a theory that they used a survey to prove.

Despite its flaws, I do think this survey reveals a cause for great concern to the GOP. With up to 50% of the electorate tired of political correctness but also imbued with shared social values, that include moderate to very moderate views on the social issues that matter the most to the hard left and hard right. Thats a huge swing vote. Much bigger than traditional analysis suggests. This is born out by issue based attitude research, which strongly suggests that a majority of Americans no longer oppose a total ban on abortion or gay marriage; who refute racism; and who support equal rights for women for example.

Those swing voters are not going to feel comfortable with a further move to the right and/or support a President who only ever plays to the 25% of hardcore Conservatives. Any more then they would support a swing to the hard left.

Assuming Trump does not shoot himself in the foot over the next 2 years or a world changing event occurs, with 50% or more of the electorate in play, 2020 will in my view come down to one simple thing. Who the Dems select to run against Trump. If its Warren or Saunders or someone of their ilk, then its anyones election. If its Biden or someone credible from the moderate wing of the Dems, I think Trump and the GOP are in real trouble.

In two years they will not be able to rely on the benefits of the tax cuts because those will have dissipated and they will have begun to seriously bloat our national debt. When the economy is doing ok to well, the electorate are also free to focus on other issues. So if the economy stays at the current level, I dont think the economy is a winning issue. However, growing national debt, the negative impact of the tariffs, rising commodity costs, global instability resulting from our retreat from global leadership; rises in interest rates and or inflation could all seriously undermine the economy and that is definitely...


Israel's ambassador to France slammed for trying to censor news story about Gazan children crippled by Israeli snipers "IndyWatch Feed World"

Israeli Ambassador to France Aliza bin Noun is under fire for attempts to censor a news report on the situation in the Gaza Strip. The report aired on France 2, despite her demands that it never be aired. The report, titled "Gaza's disabled teens," was an investigative story on Palestinian teens who had been crippled by Israeli sniper fire into the Gaza Strip. This included a number of teens who lost legs, and their difficulty in getting by on a single leg in the strip. Bin Noun argued that the report on Israeli snipers shooting and crippling teenage civilians "vilifies Israel" and subsequently posed a threat to the French Jewish community. French newspaper Le Monde noted that no one at the Israeli Embassy had even seen the report before protesting that it would be aired, and that bin Noun complained Israel wasn't allowed to respond even though the Israeli military spokesman was interviewed in the report.

BDS supporters come out fighting after Israeli court attempts to silence them "IndyWatch Feed World"

Apartheid Israel has long sought to criminalise boycotts against its occupation of Palestine. In 2011, Amnesty International called its new anti-boycott law "a blatant attempt to stifle peaceful dissent and campaigning by attacking the right to freedom of expression". And now, an Israeli court has ruled against two Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions (BDS) supporters for their role in getting a concert cancelled. But Israel is probably wishing it hadn't tried to silence these campaigners. Because they've come out fighting. High-profile BDS success and backlash from occupation-defenders In late 2017, New Zealand-based campaigners Justine Sachs and Nadia Abu-Shanab (of Jewish and Palestinian descent respectively) asked singer Lorde to cancel a concert in Israel out of respect for the non-violent BDS movement.

Middle Ages weren't 'dark', it was an enlightened era - British Library expert "IndyWatch Feed World"

It is popularly held as a period when Britain and the rest of the world fell into a deep decline. But according to the British Library, the Dark Ages were anything but.

Dr Claire Breay said that objects in the "once-in-a-generation" exhibition, which opens on Friday, show that Britain was sophisticated and pioneering. She told The Telegraph: "I think people always think of this time as the Dark Ages. "We are trying to show the public and encourage them to engage with the literary and artistic evidence of the [Anglo-Saxon peoples'] complex and sophisticated lives."


Macrons police state attack on left opposition "IndyWatch Feed World"

This 18 October 2018 video says about itself:

French Leftist firebrand Jean-Luc Mlenchon has broken new ground on social media by broadcasting a police raid on his political headquarters from his mobile phone.

A furious Mr Mlenchon, head of France Insoumise (France Unbowed), filmed as eight police officers searched the party headquarters early on Tuesday, which he slammed as an attempted coup de force against his party to scare and intimidate us. He broadcast the raid from his smart phone on Facebook.

Police also searched the headquarters of the Parti de Gauche, a Leftist ally, and Mr Mlenchons former assistants.

So, now the French Macron government attempts to silence opposition to it from the left; basing itself on smears of corruption made by the neo-fascist National Front (now renamed National Rally) attacking the political left, to divert attention from their own real corruption.

Operation Choke Point: Obama's secret war on political enemies finally unmasked "IndyWatch Feed World"

James Madison once wrote that "the rights of persons, and the rights of property, are the objects, for the protection of which government was instituted." While in recent years our political leaders have not always lived up to Madison's vision of government, rarely have they engaged in such blatant disregard for our constitutional rights as they did during Operation Choke Point - a secret program launched under the Obama administration to punish political adversaries. Operation Choke Point was a plot by President Obama's Department of Justice, the Federal Deposit Insurance Commission, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, and other government agencies to cut off banking and financial services for small businesses and industries that they deemed to be political enemies or otherwise undesirable. Some of these businesses included gun stores, ammunition shops, fireworks stores, small dollar lenders, and home-based charities.


Facebook's getting sued for 'inflating' ad watch times by up to 900% to keep advertisers "IndyWatch Feed World"

The group of ad buyers has filed a fraud complaint alleging the social media giant hid the "irregularities" in its video metrics for over a year, misleading advertisers into believing that people were spending considerably more time watching their ads than they actually were. The complaint builds on the lawsuit they filed in late 2016 in California federal court alleging Facebook engaged in unfair business conduct when it released false metrics that overestimated the amount of time spent watching video ads, in some cases inflating viewing time by 900 percent.


Dehumanising! Twitter & Atlantic Council release millions of Tweets from 'Russian trolls' "IndyWatch Feed World"

Ahead of midterm elections, Twitter has reminded Americans that democracy is still under threat by releasing millions of tweets by pesky Russians (and Iranians) from the past decade. How do they know? Well, that's the question. Twitter says the database released on Wednesday contains an archive of tweets and media "we believe resulted from potentially state-backed information operations." Translation: dastardly Russian (and some Iranian!) trolls looking to corrupt the sanctity of American elections. Some ten million posts - dating back to 2009 - come from 3,841 accounts Twitter thinks are highly likely connected to the Russian Internet Research Agency (IRA), and from 770 supposedly "backed by" Iran. Most of the content dealt with American politics, weighing in on both sides of the widening left-right divide in the US. Posts about Black Lives Matter activism: Russian bots. Gun rights? Russian bots. NFL players kneeling for the national anthem? Yep, Russian bots.


Unmasking Phony Values Campaigns by the Corporatists "IndyWatch Feed World"

Corporatist candidates like to talk up values without getting specific and without drawing attention to how their voting records put the interests of big financial backers against the interest of most voters. This election season is no exception, from Florida to Texas to California to Ohio to Wisconsin. In 2004, I wrote the following article for the Louisville Courier-Journal comparing Kentucky values to the starkly opposing record and behavior of Senator Mitch McConnell.

All current candidates for elective office who stand for we the people and believe that big corporations should be our servants, not our masters, may find this list of values applicable in their states. Corporatist opponents voting records, positions, and their campaign contributors interests can be clearly compared with civic values and any other values voters and candidates wish to highlight. This kind of comparison can only help to turn out larger numbers of voters who want to elect candidates who will champion consumer, worker, children, and small taxpayer causes.


From my travels throughout Kentucky, starting with the late 60s campaign for coal miners health and safety laws, Ive observed that Kentuckians would like their politicians to be driven by Kentucky values. This election season, voters must be wondering: How has Sen. Mitch McConnell lived up to key Bluegrass State commitments?

  1. Rewarding hard work

Kentuckians dont want handouts they believe in working for a living. Thats why they believe in a fair days wage for a fair days work.

Mitch McConnell is worth more than $27 million, but has blocked efforts to prevent the minimum wage from seriously eroding due to inflation. He would rather allow McDonalds and Walmart have taxpayers, through the earned income tax credit, pay for their workers public assistance than raise their minimum wages to meet workers basic needs.

  1. Honoring your elders

Many Kentuckians follow the Fifth Commandment: Honor thy father and thy mother. They believe our elders, after a lifetime of work, deserve a decent living standard.

Mitch McConnell dishonors our fathers and mothers when he says that the government should cut funding for Social Security and Medicare, programs that give Kentucky elders, who paid into these safety nets, much-deserved security in their golden yea...

UK vetoed plan for Assange to get diplomatic immunity in Russia, newly released files show "IndyWatch Feed World"

Newly published files confirm plan to move Assange to Russia Julian Assange: Hacker. Journalist. Diplomat? Newly released Ecuadorean government documents have laid bare an unorthodox attempt to extricate the WikiLeaks founder from his embassy hideaway in London by naming him as a political counselor to the country's embassy in Moscow. But the 47-year-old Australian's new career in international affairs was nipped in the bud when British authorities vetoed his diplomatic status, effectively blocking him from taking up the post in Russia. The files were made public late Tuesday by Ecuadorean opposition lawmaker Paola Vintimilla, who opposes her government's decision to grant Assange nationality. They largely corroborate a recent Guardian newspaper report that Ecuador attempted the elaborate maneuver to get Assange to Moscow just before Christmas last year.

LE: Can you give us a timeline of the general strike in Iranian Kurdistan following the executions of Ramin Hossein Panahi, Zanyar Moradi and Loghman Moradi on September 8?

On August 25th, 2018, four Kurdish environmental activists were killed under suspicious circumstances while trying to put down a fire in the woods near Mariwan. Many people accused the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) of killing them deliberately by shelling the area. On September 7th, Iranian forces ambushed and killed 4 members of KODAR (the Free and Democratic Society of Eastern Kurdistan) near the city of Sna in Iranian Kurdistan. The next day the Islamic regime executed three Kurdish political prisoners and fired several missiles at the headquarters of the Kurdistan Democratic Party of Iran (KDP) in Iraqi Kurdistan, while the partys central committee was holding a plenum. Fifteen KDP members, including five members of KDPs central committee, were killed. Other missiles killed two members of another Kurdish group active in Iran, the Kurdistan Democratic Party of Iran (PDK-I), in the nearby area. Scores of people, including civilians, were injured. Following these events, the main political parties of Iranian Kurdistan (Rojhelat) called on Kurdish people in Rojhelat to hold a general strike on September 12th to protest the Iranian regimes atrocities. People responded positively overwhelmingly and on September 12th all shops and retailers across Iranian Kurdistan rem...

Skripal and Khashoggi: A tale of two disappearances and US hypocrisy "IndyWatch Feed World"

Two disappearances, and two very different responses from Western governments, which illustrates their rank hypocrisy. When former Russian spy Sergei Skripal went missing in England earlier this year, there was almost immediate punitive action by the British government and its NATO allies against Moscow. By contrast, Western governments are straining with restraint towards Saudi Arabia over the more shocking and provable case of murdered journalist Jamal Khashoggi. The outcry by Western governments and media over the Skripal affair was deafening and resulted in Britain, the US and some 28 other countries expelling dozens of Russian diplomats on the back of unsubstantiated British allegations that the Kremlin tried to assassinate an exiled spy with a deadly nerve agent. The Trump administration has further tightened sanctions citing the Skripal incident. London's case against Moscow has been marked by wild speculation and ropey innuendo. No verifiable evidence of what actually...

The top banks want to help Uber IPO, and bankers are taking unorthodox steps to prove themselves to the company.

Im guessing Michael Grimes makes more money than most of us. Hes a technology banker at Morgan Stanley, meaning he works with some of the most highly valued companies around and probably sees a fat multimillion-dollar salary. Despite this, Grimes still reportedly spent years driving an Uber carnot because he needed more money, but because he wanted a leg up on the other banking competition who are vying to help take the company public.

Caught in the Cross Hairs: Media Lens and the Mystery of the Wikipedia Editor "IndyWatch Feed World"

In June, the BBC reported that someone operating under the name Philip Cross had been extraordinarily active in editing Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia that anyone can edit:

Philip Cross has made hundreds of thousands of edits to Wikipedia pages. But in the process hes angered anti-war activists and critics of British and Western foreign policy, who claim hes been biased against them.

Political analyst and former UK British ambassador Craig Murray described the scale of Crosss activities:

Philip Cross has not had one single day off from editing Wikipedia in almost five years. He has edited every single day from 29 August 2013 to 14 May 2018. Including five Christmas Days. Thats 1,721 consecutive days of editing.

133,612 edits to Wikipedia have been made in the name of Philip Cross over 14 years. Thats over 30 edits per day, seven days a week. And I do not use that figuratively: Wikipedia edits are timed, and if you plot them, the timecard for Philip Crosss Wikipedia activity is astonishing if it is one individual.

So who is Philip Cross? The BBC commented:

BBC Trending has been able to establish that he lives in England, and that Philip Cross is not the name he normally goes by outside of Wikipedia.

The excellent Five Filters website looked deeply into these issues and noted of the person writing as Cross:

Supreme Court hearing case that could end Internet censorship, expand scope of the First Amendment "IndyWatch Feed World"

After the recent purge of over 800 independent media outlets on Facebook, the Supreme Court is now hearing a case that could have ramifications for any future attempts at similar purges. The United States Supreme Court has agreed to take a case that could change free speech on the Internet forever. Manhattan Community Access Corp. v. Halleck, No. 17-702, the case that it has agreed to take, will decide if the private operator of a public access network is considered a state actor, CNBC reported. The case could affect how companies like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Google and YouTube are governed. If the Court were to issue a far-reaching ruling it could subject such companies to First Amendment lawsuits and force them to allow a much broader scope of free speech from its users. The Court decided to take the case on Friday and it is the first case that was taken after Justice Brett Kavanaugh joined the Court.

19 Dead, More Than 50 Wounded in Crimea College Shooting "IndyWatch Feed World"

MOSCOW The Latest on the deadly explosion at a college in Crimea (all times local):

9:40 p.m.

Officials in Crimea say the casualty toll at a vocational school shooting in Kerch now stands at 19 dead and more than 50 wounded, many of them severely.

Sergei Astrankin, the director of emergency medicine for Crimea, was cited by Russian state television as saying the death toll from Wednesdays attack had risen to 19. The shooter, who committed suicide afterward, apparently was not included in that number.

Crimeas regional chief, Sergei Aksyonov, told the state news channel Rossiya-24 that 53 people were wounded in the Kerch attack, 12 of whom are now in serious condition.


8 p.m.

Russian officials says an 18-year-old student attacked his vocational school in Crimea, going on a rampage that killed 17 students and left more than 40 people wounded before killing himself.

One student says the shooting Wednesday went on for at least 15 minutes.

Russias Investigative Committee, the nations top investigative agency, said the attacker was caught on security cameras entering Kerch Polytechnic College in the Black Sea city of Kerch and firing at students. It identified him as Vladislav Roslyakov. It said all the victims died of gunshot wounds.

Sergei Aksyonov, the regional leader in Crimea, said the fourth-year student at the school had acted alone and killed himself in the schools library after the attack.


3:45 p.m.

Russias top investigative body says it has identified the man who opened fire in a college in a Crimean town, killing 18 people and wounding more than 40.

The Investigative Committee said an 18-year old student identified as Vladislav Roslyakov arrived at the vocational college in Kerch early Wednesday afternoon with a rifle and opened fire. The investigators said all the victims have died of gunshot wounds.

The investigators had earlier put out a statement saying an improvised explosive device went off in the college..

The investigators cited CCTTV footage showing that the man opened fire on people and later killed himself. The investigators said they will now treat the incident as a mass murder and not as a terrorist attack.


3:40 p.m.

Russian President Vladimir Putin says the attack on a college in Crimea was a tragedy and offered condolences to the victims families.

FBI Investigator Charged With Child Rapes Found Dead in New York City Hotel Room Just Hours Before Plea Deal Testimony

Posted on October 2, 2018 by admin

Was there fear that the FBIs Jeffrey Wilson would Rat out others?

One New York FBI source says there was. But that is no longer a concern because Wilson was found dead in a New York City hotel room Saturday, literally hours before he was scheduled to sign a plea deal.

There was fear of what he would testify to because he was a wildcard, one FBI insider said. The Bureau was trying to keep this entire case away from the media. Its a mess.

Wilson worked computer crimes for the FBI in New York City. He may have known too much or was ready to trade some of that knowledge for a sweet plea deal.

Wilson was facing two counts of child rape with force, and six counts of indecent assault and battery on a child under 14 years old.

There are two victims in this case, and the attacks allegedly occurred in Grafton, Massachusetts. The alleged attacks dated back to 1998 and continued to 2006.

Court records indicate at the time of his arrest, Jeffrey Wilson was employed by the New York Office of the FBI working computer investigations.

Corrupt Scientists Driven To Resign, but Not Climate Scientists? "IndyWatch Feed World"

The fundamental problem is that manipulation of data is often an accepted casting out of a small group of anomalies as lab error or its equivalent.  It is my contention that this is a grave mistake.  those 'errors' need to be carefully vetted for the possibility of new information. In fact i would invest as much on anomalies as on well behaving data which could well be defining the media.

 In fact twenty anomalies just by themselves if conforming represent a new phenomena, no matter how large the primary universe of samples.  I use this all the time to winkle out new information.  It allowed me to determine and refine the living presence of the supposedly extinct Giant Sloth.

It also allowed me to understand that mind to mind communication is universal in the animal kingdom and that we are the likely exceptions.  This generated further work that nicely confirmed the phenomena.

Some science is also simply bought and sold and this is profoundly corrupt and even dangerous as we are discovering with the Vaccine meme. Then there is climate science which has become a laughing stock in terms of scientific rigor and  fraud.

Economics Everywhere, Politics Nowhere: The Benefits of Swiss Decentralization "IndyWatch Feed World"

 The fundamental error of hierarchical economic thinking is that good management at the upper level has any chance of working down to the lowest level.  It does not.  However good management at the lowest level has every chance of working its way up the food chain.

Now imagine a world in which tribes or ethnic groups establish nation states with little land attachment except to a designated city state to which all are enrolled as citizens.  This even allows dual citizens at the least and arrangements such as made by italy with long gone non residents.  After all this means exactly two things.  One the right to vote and two the right to buy a property in the designated city State.

After all that the population goes where they are welcome and can prosper.  The Swiss merely prove my point by having done just what i say.

Kavanaugh accuser Christine Blasey Ford ran mass hypnotic inductions of psychiatric subjects "IndyWatch Feed World"


Now that she has dropped out of the picture, we can pay attention to the real story here.  This lady is as good as it gets in terms of an example of mind manipulation as likely practiced by the CIA to undertake a variety of tasks.

Those tasks have included producing a pilot able to shut of the fuel line in an aircraft and then interfere to prevent its recovery as well.  This appears to be what happened to JFKjr's aircraft and shortly after to an Egyptian bound aircraft.  That is why i think that the JFKjr crash was actually faked in order to prevent an actual attempt on his life.  Of course this means a Navy SEAL intervention which the pattern of events easily supports.  I cannot prove any of this but the pattern supports just that and it is clearly possible.

Here we get more into the the science been developed and the side effects are not trivial either.

I have seen a number of example or at least suspected examples and it has reached a point in which law enforcement needs to become aware of the possiblity and just how it may compare to biologically and drug induced mental illness.

Two bright meteor fireballs streak over Argentina and Brazil, sonic boom reported "IndyWatch Feed World"

A bright meteor fireball streaked through the night sky over Argentina on October 15, 2018, illuminating both sky and ground. Sergio Toscano, former director of the Adolfo Kolping Observatory of Posadas, claims the flash that lit the southern sky of Misiones and the north of Corrientes was produced by a meteor, reports Clarin. Toscano said: "I am inclined to think that it was a meteor that when in contact with the Earth's atmosphere became incandescent to the point of exploding and fragmenting." Social networks were populated with comments about a fleeting light that lit up the sky for a few seconds. In the area of Concepcin de la Sierra, in Misiones, there was an explosion in the sky and a 'slight earthquake' that was felt in the homes. Gobernador Virasoro, a firefighter who witnessed the incident said, "it was practically daytime," according to Teletrece.


Embassy Disappearances: Jamal Khashoggi and the Foreign Policy Web "IndyWatch Feed World"

Do this outside. You will put me into trouble.

Mohammad al-Otaibi, Saudi consul, to Saudi agents, Istanbul, October 2, 2018

It smells, but anything wedged between the putrefaction of Saudi foreign policy, the ambition of Turkish bellicosity, and the US muddling middleman is bound to.  Three powers tussling over image and appearance; all engaged in a wrestle over how best to seem the least hypocritical.  US-based Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi already seems to have found his name into the books of martyred dissidents, but we have no body, merely an inflicted disappearance suggesting a gruesome murder.

The journalist, a notable critic of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, was last seen on October 2 entering the residence of the Saudi consul-general in Istanbul, ostensibly to obtain a document necessary for his upcoming nuptials.  A senior Turkish official put forth a brutal scenario on Wednesday based on obtained audio recordings.  Saudi operatives, probably numbering 15 from the intelligence services and the Royal Guards, were waiting for Khashoggis arrival at 1.15 pm.  Within a matter of minutes, Khashoggi was dead, decapitated, dismembered, his fingers removed.  The entire operation took two hours.

The New York Times pondered how the brutality was inflicted.  Whether Mr. Khashoggi was killed before his fingers were removed and his body dismembered could not be determined.  The Saudi consul Mohammad al-Otaibi was revealed to be squeamish and worried, suggesting the agents ply their craft elsewhere.  The reply from one of the company was curt and unequivocal: If you want to live when you come back to Arabia, shut up.  A Saudi doctor of forensics, Salah Muhammad al-Tubaigy, a worthy addition to the crew, got to work disposing of the body.  His advice to any companions feeling wobbly: listen to music, soothe the savage breast.

A danse macabre has developed between the various power players.  US president Donald Trump has asked his Turkish counterparts for any audio or video evidence that might shed light on the journalists fate.  To date, these have been drip fed with tantalising timing, disturbing the White Houses neat and comfortable acceptance of the account put forth by Riyadh.  But Turkeys Recep Tayyip Erdoan, an individual never shy to exploit a jingoistic moment, has remained cautiously reticent.

This is where the world of image, supposition, and make-believe, comes into play.  The procuring of evid...

Canada Now Worlds Biggest Legal Pot Marketplace "IndyWatch Feed World"

MONTREAL Jubilant customers stood in long lines for hours then lit up and celebrated on sidewalks Wednesday as Canada became the worlds largest legal marijuana marketplace.

In Toronto, people smoked joints as soon as they rolled out of bed in a big wake and bake celebration. In Alberta, a government website that sells pot crashed when too many people tried to place orders.

And in Montreal, Graeme Campbell welcomed the day he could easily buy all the pot he wanted.

In the past, it was hard to find people to sell to me because I look like a cop, the clean-cut, 43-year-old computer programmer said outside a newly opened pot store.

He and his friend Alex Lacrosse were smoking when two police officers walked by. I passed you a joint right in front of them and they didnt even bat an eye, Lacrosse told his friend.

Festivities erupted throughout the nation as Canada became the largest country on the planet with legal marijuana sales. At least 111 pot shops were expected to open Wednesday across the nation of 37 million people, with many more to come, according to an Associated Press survey of the provinces. Uruguay was the first country to legalize marijuana.

Ian Power was first in line at a store in St. Johns, Newfoundland but didnt plan to smoke the one gram he bought after midnight.

I am going to frame it and hang it on my wall, the 46-year-old Power said. Im going to save it forever.

Tom Clarke, an illegal pot dealer for three decades, opened a pot store in Portugal Cove, Newfoundland, and made his first sale to his dad. He was cheered by the crowd waiting in line.

This is awesome. Ive been waiting my whole life for this, Clarke said. I am so happy to be living in Canada right now instead of south of the border.

By afternoon, Clarke had sold his entire cannabis supply and had to turn away customers.

The start of legal sales wasnt the only good news for pot aficionados. Canada said it intends to pardon everyone with convictions for possessing up to 30 grams of marijuana, the newly legal threshold.

I dont need to be a criminal anymore, and thats a great feeling, singer Ashley MacIsaac said outside a government run shop in Nova Scotia. And my new dealer is the prime minister!

Medical marijuana has been legal since 2001 in Canada, and Prime Minister Justin Trudeaus government has spent the past two years working toward legalizing recreational pot to better reflect societys changing opinion about marijuana and to bring black market operators into a regulated system.

Corey Stone and a friend got to one of the 12 stores that opened in Quebec at 3:45 a.m. to be among the first to buy pot. Hundreds late...

Understanding the 10 Official Personality Disorders "IndyWatch Feed World"

One of the things that makes us all unique is our personality, an aspect of ourselves that has developed over time, influenced by our experiences. For most, this is seen as nothing more than the way you portray yourselves to others, however, for those living with personality disorders it is far more complex. This can create great challenges when interacting with others.

For those that live with a personality disorder, life presents with unique challenges. This can impact every area of their lives including their career, education, relationships, and home life.

The American Psychiatric Association (APA) addresses these disorders in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5), defining a personality disorder as an enduring pattern of inner experience and behavior that deviates markedly from the expectations of the culture of the individual who exhibits it. In short, those who are living with these conditions may believe that their behaviors or actions are normal, however, to others their behavior deviates from that which is expected. They may be self-destructive, irritable, impulsive, manipulative, fearful, hostile or even violent in their actions. This often leads to greater problems, as they find themselves struggling with unhealthy coping mechanisms such as alcohol or drug use.

While personality disorders may be detrimental to ones overall health and well-being, the signs and symptoms can be managed through professional treatment. This includes the use of both group and individual psychotherapy, as well as, in some cases, the assistance of medications including mood stabilizers and antidepressants. Early diagnosis and on-going treatment efforts can ensure a long, happy life.

The DSM-5 defines a total of 10 different personality disorders grouped into 3 broader clusters: A, B, and C.

Cluster A Odd, Bizarre, Eccentric

Paranoid Personality Disorder

Those who live with paranoid personality disorder spend their lives living in fear, always alert and aware, suspicious of everyone and everything that they meet. This inability to trust hinders their ability to create any form of lasting relationship, as their first...


Halloween Will Bring Us the Most Spiritual Night of the Year, As Mercury Enters Sagittarius "IndyWatch Feed World"

Halloween is here, and with it comes an energy of spookiness, evil and mischief. For most, this is a time that the study of astrology bows down to the emergence of Samhain, a holiday dedicated to the remembrance of those who came before us, a respect for the deceased. However, while this energy exists from year to year, it doesnt erase the influence of planetary movement.

On October 31st, Mercury will make its shift from the balance and harmony driven Libra into the passionate and mysterious sign of Scorpio. Are you prepared for the intense change this will bring to our lives?

Mercury, better known as the Planet of Communication is best known for its ability to impact not only the connection that we create with others but also the way that our own minds work. Consider, for a moment, when we establish our opinions and reactions to the world around us we are essentially communication with ourselves. Therefore, it makes sense that this planet would be able to affect our rational thought and reasoning. While this may sound intimidating, the impact of this planet is one that can be easily leveraged for our own advantage, we simply need to understand its impact in order to embrace it and use it to our benefit.

During the season of Libra, our attention was largely focused on small talk, keeping those around us happy. We valued the importance of balance and harmony and were able to use our skills of communication to make this a reality. However, on October 31st, Halloween night, the planet will move into the realm of Scorpio trigger a significant shift in energy.

Scorpio is well known for its impulsive and emotionally driven nature, its intense passion driving every choice and action. It is, for this reason, that astrologist caution that Mercury in Sagittarius will bring drama and pain. If there are areas in your life in which you find yourself drawn to a cause or purpose, pay attention. This shift in energy will empower you to focus your efforts, making this dream a reality.

For the weak, this is a time where you will make poor choices, acting on impulse and driven by your emotions. For the strong, however, this is the opportunity to dig deeper. Mercury in Scorpio will open your mind to your deepest desires and motivation. Your biggest weaknesses will be highlighted, drawn into the spotlight. Dont allow this to discourage you. By overcoming these weaknesses, you will find your true strength.

Your relationships will be tested, and there is a good chanc...


The Hunters Full Moon in October Will Bring a Volatile and Uncertain Energy "IndyWatch Feed World"

As we step back and address the influence that the moon has on our lives, it can be easy to take the predictable moons phases for granted. The full moon brings intensified emotions and energy, whereas the new moon is the perfect opportunity to set intentions and focus your eyes on the future. However, what do you do when this energy doesnt, necessarily, follow suit.

On October 24th, we will be visited by the October full moon better known as the Full Hunters Moon. The moon is said to have earned its name from the Native Americans, recognizing that this was the time of year in which it was important to focus on the hunt and stockpiling provisions for the coming winter months. While we arent nearly as worried about preparing for the winter in todays day and age, the moons influence is still significant.

While many would love to associate the full moon with Halloween, the next time that the two will coincide is 2020. However, dont underestimate its influence! As with every other full moon throughout the year, the energy that comes with this moon is one of intensity, power, and influence. The only way to ensure that this time will work in your favor is to better understand it and leverage it.

The full moon is often known for its intensity and heightened emotions, however, this energy in conjunction with the stable, reliable and dependable energy of Taurus is sure to be something a little different than you are currently used to.

As astrologer Lisa Stardust explains, the October 2018 full moon will bring unexpected change around love, relationships, and even our emotional make-up; as the Taurus moon will awaken our sense and sensibilities, offering us an opportunity to shake up existing relationships.

You are going to come face to face with the most difficult and frightening side of your own personality, but dont allow this to tear you down. It is said that from the greatest storms will emerge our most profound accomplishments, and this moon is no different! Those who find a way to embrace the calm and leverage this opportunity for self-growth will find that great things are on the horizon!



The Void Course of the Moon Has a Powerful Energy That You Should Never Ignore "IndyWatch Feed World"

Many people are aware of the impact that the moon and its phases can have on its life. Its for this reason that the phrase it must be a full moon has become popular. However, there is much more to the movement of the moon, and its influence on the Universal energy, then many of us are aware.

As the moon is relatively close to the Earth, its movement through the zodiac signs is relatively quick. In fact, it enters a new sign every 28 days on average. As it enters each sign, it brings a significant impact to the universal energy that influences our lives.

The moon does not produce its own light, it is a reflection of the light of the sun. This is the reason for the moons phases, a change in the way that the moon appears relative to the amount of light that the sun extends in its direction. As the Earth moves between the two, this light is hindered or altered. Many who buy into the study of astrology believe that this light is also the source of the Moons energy, shifting and altering with the change in the moons phases.

However, this energy, as with most influences that we experience in the universe, is finite. Approximately 2 to 3 days after each moon phase, its influence is delivered. At this time, it continues to exist much like someone standing holding an empty box, with nothing of importance left to deliver. Why is this important? This creates another shift in the energy that we recognize. At this time, it no longer holds any significant role in ones astrological chart. It is merely a time of transition.

Astrologists believe that all decisions actions should be taken when the moon is not void of course, as this will allow us to leverage the moons energy in our efforts. This includes the scheduling of major job interviews, the start of a new relationship, or the presentation pitching a new idea in relation to your career.

When the energy of the universe is moving forward, it is an optimal time for us to jump in and leverage the current. For this same reason, if we are experiencing a situation I which the energy is backward moving it is generally advised that we take steps to compensate for this shift, overcompensating for the change. However, when this energy has stalled we are in a position where one can become trapped or comfortable.

This isnt to say that the moon void, of course, doesnt provide us with an important opportunity. This is the perfect time to tie up loose ends and complete projects already in the works. Rather than looking forwar...

Corker: Trump administration 'clamped down' on Saudi intel, canceled briefing "IndyWatch Feed World"

Corker: Trump administration 'clamped down' on Saudi intel, canceled briefing | 17 Oct 2018 | Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) said Wednesday that the Trump administration is restricting access to information about a missing Saudi journalist, a move that comes as President Trump has publicly echoed denials of wrongdoing from top Saudi officials. Corker, the chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, told The Washington Post that the administration had "clamped down" on sharing intelligence about Washington Post contributor Jamal Khashoggi, a critic of the Saudi government who has been missing for more than two weeks. "I can only surmise that probably the intel is not painting a pretty picture as it relates to Saudi Arabia," Corker told The Post.


Why Parliamentary Systems Pose a Terrible Threat to Society "IndyWatch Feed World"

COMMENT: I read your piece that parliamentary governments are far more dangerous than your American system because it allows minorities to gain the upper hand and rule a country. That is clearly the case here in Germany. Merkel does not have the majority yet she leads the country and Europe.

Thank you for your in-depth analysis


REPLY: All you have to do is look at Adolf Hitler. He was the leader of the right-wing National Socialist German Workers Party (called the Nazi Party for short). It was, by 1933, one of the strongest parties in Germany, even though reflecting the countrys multiparty system the Nazis had won only a plurality of 33% of the votes in the 1932 elections to the German Reichstag. This is the danger I am speaking about. The Nazis Party impacted all of Europe yet it too had never won a majority in Germany. This is the danger of a parliamentary system. It should be MAJORITY rules only! In France, you keep going to a run-off until you get down to two candidates.

With respect to Merkel, there are more people who wanted her to leave than to stay. In fact, she won less than Hitler.

Will Elections ever be Valid Any More? "IndyWatch Feed World"

QUESTION: Mr. Armstrong; You have stated that you believe Kennedy was assassinated by the US Intelligence community. Given all this stuff with Comey, FBI, CIA, and NSA all conspiring against Trump, do you think that the real risk of interfering with our elections is not the Russians but closer to home? Is this a practice that always takes place that we are just suddenly becoming aware of these days?

Thank you

see you in Orlando


ANSWER: Absolutely. It is being called Spygate and it is very disturbing. The Democrats did absolutely everything to put Hillary in office. They thought they won. They had the press in their pocket like CNN, New York Times, and the Washington Post leading a host of others. We have to realize that Democracy is dead. I really do fear that Trump will be the LAST democratically elected president. What comes after Trump is not going to be warm and endearing.



Taurus Full Moon October 24th: Love Is Ready To Catch You Off Guard "IndyWatch Feed World"

As you may know, there is a full moon well on its way. The Taurus full moon will occur on October 24th and with that, we can expect a lot of emotions to begin stirring.

This full moon will be at one degree Taurus and bring forth more change and excitement than you could ever expect. There will be an influx of problems but also solutions. As you rethink commitments things are going to get quite heated. All of our emotions tend to be higher when a full moon is underway and this is no exception.

Using your emotional strength, you can get through this. You will begin to see a lot of growth within your personal relationships over the course of two weeks while this moons influence is still prominent. Because this full moon is so connected with Saturn you can also expect more stability to be brought forth.

Astrology King lists some of the challenging aspects as follows in regards to this full moon:

Venus opposite Uranus signals change or tension in your love life. If single, a new romance would be exciting, surprising, unusual or kinky. But it could also be risky, unstable and brief. Internet dating suits this aspect and you could find someone from a very different background or culture than your own. If you have a partner, an unexpected event, flirting, an affair or sexual experimentation may lead to drama or separation.

Whatever your situation, if love is not an option then change and excitement can manifest in another area of life. Financial windfalls are possible but you should be extra careful with money. Avoid a tendency to gamble or invest in get rich quick schemes. Find stimulation some other way through entertainment, especially on the internet.

Moon conjunct Uranus brings impulsive reactions. Sudden events may result in relationship upsets, family disputes, or a major change in an intimate relationship. Some eccentric or weird actions may not turn out so well, but one or two may prove extremely valuable. At times you may feel isolated or detached from your loved ones.

Moon opposite Venus increases your need for love and affection regardless of the consequences. If single, loneliness could cause you to lower your standards just to be with someone. If you have a partner, different moods or needs may expose simmering tensions. Whatever your relationship status, if your emotional needs are not fulfilled through human contact, you may be tempted to substitute with sugar, drugs, alcohol or shopping.

All of that aside though you will be feeling a need for companionship that cannot be shook off. Unexpected love or the restrengthening of a flickering flame might really be on its way for you. Yo...


Benjamin Fulford Report: "Fall of the Zionist House of Saud" -- October 15, 2018 "IndyWatch Feed World"

Weekly Geo-political News and Analysis

The fall of the Zionist house of Saud plus possible coup attempt in Russia

By Benjamin Fulford, White Dragon Society

World events are quickly coming to a head, with a major move against the house of Saud and a possible coup attempt this weekend against Russian President Vladimir Putin, say Pentagon, CIA, and FSB sources.

First, the murder (or psy-ops staged murder) of Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi is part of a move to remove the Zionist/Satanic house of Saud from control of Saudi Arabia and Middle Eastern oil, according to Pentagon and CIA sources. The operation is also aimed at grabbing funds to keep the bankrupt U.S. afloat, CIA sources say.

This is how the CIA summed up the situation:

The U.S. Treasury is holding between $3-5 TRILLION of Saudi Arabias petrodollars, which have been accumulating since the 70s when this whole petrodollar sleight of hand began (around the same time that Nixon closed the gold window). These trillions have been confiscated and will not be returned. The same for the thousands of tons of gold stored in Credit Suisse and UBS banks in Switzerland, which was owned by Saudi Arabia (the House of Saud). It has been confiscated as well. It is game over financially for the Zionist Khazarian House of Saud. This really is Game-Set-Match.

It is also no coincidence the Khashoggi incident happened just as the head of the CIA in Turkey, Pastor Andrew Brunson, was released from Turkish prison. The longer-term scenario will be for Turkey to resume control of its former holdings in Saudi Arabia and the Gulf States, while Israel becomes a Jewish autonomous zone under Turkish protection, the sources say.

8 Life Lessons All Great Spiritual Masters Set Out To Teach Us All "IndyWatch Feed World"

Great spiritual masters are littered throughout history and some can even be found in this day and age. These people are those who go through their lives working to teach those of us who are lost.

While not all of us will reach enlightenment or truly become awake, these spiritual teachers have faith in us all. They give us all of the tools we need to get where the universe wants us to go. Below I am going to go over some of the lessons that I have noticed are quite common from one spiritual master to another regardless of the religious views each one holds. These are things that will truly benefit each and every one of us if we can fully grasp them.

8 Lessons All Great Spiritual Masters Set Out To Teach Us:

1. Without compassion, there can be no peace.

You cannot find peace without showing compassion. Compassion is something we all must have on some level for others. It is needed more so than most people realize.

2. Tomorrow is never promised.

Tomorrow is not something we are always going to see. Being in the moment and mindful of the here and now is important. Life is too short to waste doing the things that you hate. Go out and do what you love, show a stranger kindness, and really connect with the people around you.

3. There is no such thing as perfect.

Perfection does not exist; you are not perfect and no one else is either. There is no room for jealousy in this world.

4. We are responsible for our own lives.

We are the ones who have to pay our dues and see the results of our actions. If you dont like where your life is going, make the changes you need to make. You are the only one who can control yourself

5. We are all one.

We are all one and the universe is deeply connected to us all. There is no separation in the world of energy. This life is not what it seems.

6. Pain holds an important message.

Pain is important for each of us. It teaches us a lesson and brings us to a new place in life. While it might suck in the moment it is important.

7. Simplicity is essential.

Simplicity will bring you more happiness than living in luxury. Being yourself and being surrounded by people who actually care is worth so much more. Dont fall victim to the idea that money buys happiness.

8. Forgiveness is needed even when you dont think it is.

In this world, we do not forgive others or ourselves as often as we should. We forget how important it is and d...

Four people were arrested -- Leticia Sanchez, Leticia Sanchez Tepichin, Maria Solis and Laura Parra -- after being indicted on 30 felony counts of voter fraud, according to a statement from the Texas Attorney General's Office.

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

Similar in size to large, bright spiral galaxies in our neighborhood, IC 342 is a mere 10 million light-years distant in the long-necked, northern constellation Camelopardalis. A sprawling island universe, IC 342 would otherwise be a prominent galaxy in our night sky, but it is hidden from clear view and only glimpsed through the veil of stars, gas and dust clouds along the plane of our own Milky Way galaxy.

Even though IC 342's light is dimmed by intervening cosmic clouds, this deep telescopic image traces the galaxy's obscuring dust, blue star clusters, and glowing pink star forming regions along spiral arms that wind far from the galaxy's core. IC 342 may have undergone a recent burst of star formation activity and is close enough to have gravitationally influenced the evolution of the local group of galaxies and the Milky Way.

China Is Going To Launch A Fake Moon Into The Sky In 2 Years "IndyWatch Feed World"

Sure, we all know technology is getting quite advanced but this is very next level. China is going to be using an artificial moon to light their night sky and it might be something that changes everything.

Officials in the city of Chengdu have recently announced plans to place a satellite into orbit by the year 2020. This satellite will be capable of lighting the streets at night. It will reflect sunlight and basically replace street lights for the 14 million people who live in this city. Because of a reflective coating that will be used this could really light things up in a big way.

This artificial moon has been in the works for quite some time now and has the potential to produce at least eight times more light than the real moon. While the concept might sound interesting some are very concerned about it. Could this kind of thing have negative effects on the lives of animals? Sure, officials say it wont but we dont know for sure until all is said and done. What do you think a constant full moon might cause?

If approval is granted and this moon does end up being launched within the next few years we will most likely hear many different things about it. While it will be a way to save money it comes with a lot of questions. The city also hopes that with this many will want to come to visit the area to see just how this fake moon works. It might really spark things in the world of tourism for the area.

That being said, according to many you should still be able to see this interesting fake moon from far away with a telescope. It has also been argued that perhaps using the proper equipment youd be able to see it anywhere on the globe. What do you think about the concept?

Russia once had something similar but it was ruined when an unexpected collision occurred and the concept abandoned. Do you think this will prove successful or will it end up being a problem in time? I for one cannot wait to see where it goes. For more information on this concept check out the video below.


How the CIA Undermined Civil Rights "IndyWatch Feed World"

Although the Civil Rights Movement resulted in many well known changes at an institutional level, it is widely agreed that the movement did not succeed in a total transformation of American society. The dream of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was not fully realized.

In contemplating this history, little attention is given to one of the most unfortunate reasons that the Civil Rights Movement lost steam interference and attacks from American intelligence agencies bent on neutralizing what they saw as a force of change that could destabilize society.

Farmers Almanac Warns Of Worst Winter In Years, Get Ready For Teeth Chattering Cold! "IndyWatch Feed World"

According to the team at the Farmers Almanac, the coming 2018-2019 winter is going to be the most brutal winter we have had in years. We could be facing extreme snow and cold like never before.

This is quite interesting as the Old Farmers Almanac is predicting the opposite. While their names are similar the two are not the same thing. Which will prove to be true? Could we really be facing an extreme winter?

Peter Geiger of FA said as follows:

Contrary to the stories storming the web, our time-tested, long-range formula is pointing towards a very long, cold, and snow-filled winter. We stand by our forecast and formula, which accurately predicted the many storms last winter, as well as this summers steamy, hot conditions.

On their website, it has been listed that conditions from the Continental Divide east through the Appalachians will be much colder than normal. Fridged weather is expected by February and we could also see snow showers and bitter winds. While they might not explain their reasoning they also note that abnormal snowfall should be expected around the Great Lakes and that the East Coast will be facing stormy conditions.

That being said, MNN has reported that the Farmers Almanac relies heavily on sunspot activity, tidal action, planetary position, and other mathematical and astronomical formulas in order to get their predictions. Whether or not you take this seriously is up to you. Only time will tell whether or not the winter to come will be as intense as FA thinks it will be.

For more information on this please feel free to check out the video below. What do you think about a potentially very cold winter? I for one would very much prefer cold over hot, wouldnt you? I guess as time goes by we will know whether or not we should be following the Old Farmers Almanac or the Farmers Almanac.

Published on Sep 28, 2018

John Mathis is back to enlighten us all with his knowledge, experience, and unforgettable humor! We go down some fun rabbit holes and the first one is Project Stargate. How did a disinformation campaign using psychic spies turn out? Did they use remote viewing? If so, why are people lead to disbelieve in people who claim they have psychic gifts when the government was using these very gifts in some of their highest level operations?

We have talked a lot about big pharma on this show and today we discuss the business and corruption behind cancer. As an oncology nurse and research clinician, John has first hand experience in this arena. What will he share with us on how certain drugs are pushed? What will he share with us regarding clinical studies?

And of course it wouldnt be a show without some good ol humor splashed in and so we will discuss many more topics on reptilian escape routes, the history of chemtrails and the power of our consciousness based on individual and group effects.


"A Dog's Purpose?" (From A 6 Year Old) "IndyWatch Feed World"

"A Dog's Purpose?" (From A 6 Year Old)
Posted by Thegreenman

"Being a veterinarian, I had been called to examine a ten-year-old Irish Wolfhound named Belker. The dog's owners, Ron, his wife Lisa, and their little boy Shane, were all very attached to Belker, and they were hoping for a miracle. I examined Belker and found he was dying of cancer. I told the family we couldn't do anything for Belker, and offered to perform the euthanasia procedure for the old dog in their home. As we made arrangements, Ron and Lisa told me they thought it would be good for six-year-old Shane to observe the procedure. They felt as though Shane might learn something from the experience.

The next day, I felt the familiar catch in my throat as Belker 's family surrounded him. Shane seemed so calm, petting the old dog for the last time, that I wondered if he understood what was going on. Within a few minutes, Belker slipped peacefully away. The little boy seemed to accept Belker's transition without any difficulty or confusion. We sat together for a while after Belker's death, wondering aloud about the sad fact that animal lives are shorter than human lives.



Paulo Coelho, "Heaven and Hell" "IndyWatch Feed World"

"Heaven and Hell"
by Paulo Coelho

"A man, his horse and his dog were traveling down a road. When they were passing by a gigantic tree, a bolt of lightning struck and they all fell dead on the spot. But the man did not realize that he had already left this world, so he went on walking with his two animals; sometimes the dead take time to understand their new condition

The journey was very long, uphill, the sun was strong and they were covered in sweat and very thirsty. They were desperately in need of water. At a bend in the road they spotted a magnificent gateway, all in marble, which led to a square paved with blocks of gold and with a fountain in the center that spouted forth crystalline water. The traveler went up to the man guarding the gate.

Good morning. What is this beautiful place? This is heaven. How good to have reached heaven, were ever so thirsty. You can come in and drink all you want. My horse and my dog are thirsty too. So sorry, but animals arent allowed in here.

The man was very disappointed because his thirst was great, but he could not drink alone; he thanked the man and went on his way. After traveling a lot, they arrived exhausted at a farm whose entrance was marked with an old doorway that opened onto a tree-lined dirt road.

A man was lying down in the shadow of one of...

"Death In The Afternoon" "IndyWatch Feed World"

"Death In The Afternoon"
by The Zman

"I had to put the cat down on Saturday afternoon. It was a sad thing, of course, as it always is when you have to say goodbye to a pet. The cat was diagnosed as a diabetic a few weeks back, which is not unusual with dogs and cats these days. It is a treatable condition, that is easier to manage in animals than humans. Your animal is not going to cheat on its diet or forget to take its insulin. With a little discipline and the willingness to master a few medical skills, you can manage a diabetic pet with little trouble.

On Friday night, the cat took a turn for the worse, so I went into the vet not entirely sure what to expect. They took blood and sent me home with some instructions. I figured they were humoring me, so I spent the night making my peace with what I expected was coming. The next day I learned, after further examination, that the cat had a rare type of cancer that was the real cause of the diabetes. They found tumors on his pancreas, which is not treatable, so I made the decision to put the poor thing out of his suffering.

While waiting to see the vet on Saturday, a woman I know came into the office. She was there to say goodbye to her dog. Apparently they called her with the bad news and she came into to complete the process. That was my guess anyway. The girl at the desk seemed to know what to do, despite the fact the woman was sobbing uncontrollably. She sat down on the bench next to me. Out of instinct, I guess, I dont know, I slid over and put my arm around her. She collapsed against me into a mess of tears and wailing.



Silicon Valley and the US Pentagon team up to declare that 'Russia is the enemy' "IndyWatch Feed World"

American foreign policy is more and more resembling the NFL's and broadcast networks' pre-game football hype before the Super Bowl. For those of you who grimaced while watching former President Barack Obama touchdown dancing and pretending to be a sports hero, the current POTUS is even worse. To make matters worse for humanity, many of my countrymen fall for the whole act. Case in point, hyping America's military might and bravado. When I read the INSIDER headline,"F-22 stealth jets got 587 enemy aircraft to back off in their first 'combat surge' over Syria," I immediately checked the newswires to see if Syria had exploded into World War III. Thank God, I voiced aloud on discovering the Military & Defense section (and the rest of the magazine) are owned by Insider Inc. and our old friend Jeff Bezos, the richest man in the world. No, thank your lucky stars, we are not at war with Russia, Iran, and Syria. Yes, Bezos and company consider these nations our "enemies."


The Ford Foundation and the CIA: A Documented Case of Philanthropic Collaboration with the Secret Police "IndyWatch Feed World"

The CIA uses philanthropic foundations as the most effective conduit to channel large sums of money to Agency projects without alerting the recipients to their source. From the early 1950s to the present the CIA's intrusion into the foundation field was/and is huge.

by James Petras

A U.S. Congressional investigation in 1976 revealed that nearly 50% of the 700 grants in the field of international activities by the principal foundations were funded by the CIA (Saunders, pp. 134-135). The CIA considers foundations such as Ford "The best and most plausible kind of funding cover" (Saunders 135).

The collaboration of respectable and prestigious foundations, according to one former CIA operative, allowed the Agency to fund "a seemingly limitless range of covert action programs affecting youth groups, labor unions, universities, publishing houses and other private institutions" (p. 135).

The individuals tasked with "stopping election interference" are the ones who are actually rigging it "IndyWatch Feed World"

Last week, Mark Zuckerberg made the media rounds to give a rather shady explanation of why Facebook suddenly closed hundreds of incredibly popular pages in what's being called The Alternative Media Purge. Zuckerberg accused the closed pages, many of which had millions of fans, of spreading "political spam." Ironically, many of the pages that were shut down had absolutely nothing to do with politics or elections, unless you include the fact that they recommended skipping the entire circus. None of these pages were accused of being "the Russians," who were the scapegoat of the last surprise presidential election results. A couple of the things that many of the pages did have in common, incidentally, were an anti-war outlook and a police watchdog mentality. But as far as making the election more resistant to interference, the result of the Alternative Media Purge is the diametric opposite. People will now only get one side of the story.

Saudi Arabia Financed the Killers of American Troops I Commanded "IndyWatch Feed World"

Its time to ask an uncomfortable question: What exactly is the U.S. getting out of its partnership with Saudi Arabia? The answer is: nothing but headaches, human rights abuses and national embarrassment. In the cynical past, the U.S. could at least argue that it needed Saudi oil, but thats no longer the case, due to the shale-oil boom (though that fact is not necessarily good for an ever-warming planet).

Recently, the crimes of the Saudi government managed to pierce the Trump-all-the-time-Kanye-West-sometimes media-entertainment complex due to Riyadhs likely murder of dissident journalist Jamal Khashoggi. That the U.S.-Saudi relationship is, however briefly, coming under the proverbial microscope is a good thing. Still, it is astonishing that this incidentrather than dozens of other crimesfinally garnered attention. Even so, President Trump appears reluctant to cancel his negotiated $110 billion record arms deal with the kingdom.

For me, its personal. Saudi Arabias fingerprintsboth of its government and private-citizen donorshave been all over Americas various opponents these past 17 years of war. I patrolled the streets and suburbs of Baghdad from 2006 to 2007. Sunni Islamist insurgents, which were funded by the Saudis, shot a few of my soldiers and paralyzed one permanently. We regularly found Saudi Wahhabi Islamist literature in the homes and caches of our insurgent enemies.

Years later, from 2011 to 2012, I led a cavalry reconnaissance company in Kandahar, Afghanistan. We chased the Talibanreally a collection of disgruntled farm boysaround the fields and valleys of the Zhari district. Guess where those Taliban fighterswho killed three of my men and wounded 30 otherswent to school? In Saudi-financed madrassas across the border in Pakistan.

All told, Ilike hundreds of other officerssacrificed young American soldiers fighting an enemy too often armed and funded by the kingdom of Saudi Arabia. In Iraq, my platoon suffered the loss of three lives, the use of a few legs and several gunshot wounds. In Afghanistan, my troop gave up 10 limbs, three lives and endured more than a dozen gunshot wounds. That the SaudisAmericas purported partners in the Middle Easthave even some of that blood on their hands should be seen as a national tragedy. That it is not reflects poorly on the health and future of this republic.

School and students faces lawsuit after group of 'mean girls' set out to destroy boy's life with false sexual assault accusations "IndyWatch Feed World"

Seneca Valley School District in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania is facing a lawsuit from a former male student who was forced out of school-and investigated for sexual assault-due to a series of false accusations made by female students. The girls-dubbed "mean girls" in the lawsuit, a reference to the 2004 Lindsay Lohan film-admitted on tape that they made up the assault story. One said, "I just don't like him" and "[I] would do anything to get him expelled," according to The Toronto Sun. The false allegations were life-derailing for the accused, who is referred to as "T.F." in the lawsuit. On October 3, 2017, one of the girls told other students that T.F. had sexually assaulted her at a pool; a Seneca Valley guidance counselor overheard the accusation, and reported it to Childline, the state's child abuse prevention agency, as required by law. T.F. was swiftly charged with indecent assault and harassment, and received six months of probation as part of a plea deal.


Cost of 2018 election to surpass $5 billion, CRP projects "IndyWatch Feed World"

This years midterm election cycle is slated to become the first and only member of the $5 billion club.

The Center for Responsive Politics projects that more than $5 billion will be spent during the 2018 election, making it by far the costliest congressional election cycle in U.S. history.

We expected to see the numbers climb, as they typically do, but the astonishing spike in campaign donations is a solid indicator of the intensity driving this years campaigns, said Sheila Krumholz, executive director of the Center for Responsive Politics.

The 2016 election was the most expensive congressional election, with just over $4 billion spent for House and Senate candidates in total. Only two congressional election cycles have surpassed the $4 billion mark 2016 and 2010 when adjusted for inflation.

More than $3.7 billion has already been spent on the 2018 election, including money spent by candidates, parties, committees, PACs and outside groups, for the purpose of the election.

Democratic candidates have a huge lead in spending over Republicans, having shelled out more than $1 billion to Republican candidates $720 million. Democrats have raised more than $1.3 billion from individual donors compared to just under $1 billion for Republicans as Democratic challengers have raised large masses of funds through small donors.

Republicans are leading in the outside money department, having benefited from approximately $343 million in outside spending compared to $248 million for Democrats. Outside spending, overall, is projected to be the highest-ever for a midterm election. More than $628 million has been spent by outside groups so far, compared to $421 million at this point in 2014.

Utilizing historical spending growth data from the third quarter on, CRPs model projects the total amount spent in the 2018 election will reach approximately $5.2 billion. CRP projects Democrats will spend nearly $300 million more than Republicans $2.5 billion to $2.2 billion. If current trends continue, Blue will outspend Red for the first time in 10 years.

Former KKK leader says Brazils Bolsonaro sounds like one of us

FORMER Ku Klux Klan (KKK) leader David Duke has endorsed far-right Brazilian presidential candidate Jair Bolsonaro, saying the former army captain sounds like one of us.

Support from the prominent US racist, who also supported Donald Trump during his 2016 presidential campaign, is the latest warning sign of the nature of Mr Bolsonaros candidacy.

Many have raised fears of a fascist dictatorship under his rule, with Mr Bolsonaro consistently praising the military junta that ruled over Brazil between 1964 and 1985.

He has faced mass opposition on the streets, with millions demonstrating as part of the non-partisan #NotHim movement organised by Women United Against Bolsonaro.

Attacks on opposition supporters and journalists have increased dramatically since September 30, including the stabbing to death of a prominent Workers Party (PT) activist and a woman who had a swastika carved into her stomach.

Matthew's Message via Suzanne Ward -- October 17, 2018 "IndyWatch Feed World"

Matthews Message, Oct. 17, 2018

October 17, 2018

Source: Golden Age of Gaia | By Steve Beckow

October 17, 2018

With loving greetings from all souls at this station, this is Matthew. Let us begin by addressing the two matters of most concern to readersfirst, mandatory vaccinations for children. Extraterrestrial special forces scientists are neutralizing to the extent possible the toxins in vaccines; nevertheless, continued opposition to vaccinating children as a prerequisite for their attending school is necessary to end this practice that has caused an autism-like condition in many children.

Bodies chemistry and immune systems are stressed by mercury, and youngsters who are especially vulnerable sustain neurological damage that results in symptoms very similar to autism, which is a very rare condition. Opposition can be reinforced by declining inoculations advised by healthcare professionals who are rewarded by vaccine manufacturers or believe the false claim that preventive flu shots and a raft of others are necessary public health measures.

We add that vaccines, like the first pharmaceuticals, were developed for beneficial purposes. Any innovation that is designed to be of benefit can be adapted for malevolent purposes, and that is what the Illuminati have done at every stage of the civilizations progress.

The other matter is the 5G wireless technology that offers highly accelerated speed and broader bandwidth. This new generation of communication service still is in development and market-testing stages, and universal family members are reducing the emissions impact on bodies of the relatively few people who are exposed; when devices are in mass production, those members will expand their technological assistance accordingly. A significant factor is the amount of light in a bodythe more light, the higher the vibratory rate, and the less the body is affected by emissions.

How ancient Egyptian blue emits near-infrared light and how that could boost energy efficiency "IndyWatch Feed World"

A colour developed by Egyptians thousands of years ago can boost energy efficiency by cooling rooftops and walls, and could also enable solar generation of electricity via windows, scientists say. Egyptian blue, derived from calcium copper silicate, was routinely used on ancient depictions of gods and royalty, according to the study published in the Journal of Applied Physics. Previous studies have shown that when Egyptian blue absorbs visible light, it then emits light in the near-infrared range. Now, a team led by researchers at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) in the US has confirmed the pigment's fluorescence can be 10 times stronger than previously thought. Measuring the temperature of surfaces coated in Egyptian blue and related compounds while they are exposed to sunlight, researchers found the fluorescent blues can emit nearly 100 per cent as many photons as they absorb. The energy efficiency of the emission process is up to 70 per cent (the infrared...

It should probably concern meI am a Jew, after allthat our society has replaced calipers with cotton swabs. Still, Ive got to admit that the whole idea of using perhaps the most remarkable scientific accomplishment in the history of human inquirythe sequencing of the human genometo parse individual human pedigrees like some demented, science-fiction Homo sapiens kennel club is just farcical enough to keep me from putting my papers in order and gathering enough cash to flee on the next steamer to Shanghai.

It reminds me of a viral, meme-ified Spider-Man panel in which he confronts the villainous Sauron, a brilliant human geneticist turned evil mutant pterodactyl (really!). You can rewrite DNA on the fly, and youre using it to turn people into dinosaurs? exclaims the heroic web-slinger. But with tech like that, you could cure cancer!

But I dont want to cure cancer, the villain replies. I want to turn people into dinosaurs.

Those are the shoals on which our contemporary, 23andMe-style personal genomics founder and sink: a uniquely American style of the old Soviet Lysenkoism, in which behavioral and cultural traits somehow pass, sperm to egg, across generations in percentages of inheritance. In 2016, vocal Never Trump conservative Ana Navarro famously tweeted: ZERO% African-Americans support Trump in polls, I knew I had to be black. Took @ancestry test. So excited. 4% black! Explains a lot. She tagged it with the hashtag Sistah.

I dont want to be uncharitable, and its obvious that this regrettable tweet was meant to be at least somewhat tongue-in-cheek, but it points to the ludicrous nature of the entire enterprise. Four percent black! What can this possibly mean? Will we return to the racial classifications that gave colonial European slave societies an entire taxonomy? Honey, our results came back and someone in our family is a hexadecaroon! Its offensiveness is mitigated by its absurdity, but only slightly.

Which brings us to the present politico-genetic kerfuffle, in which Sen. Elizabeth Warren has responded to Donald Trumps racist Pocahontas nickname for her by having a respected geneticist prove that somewhere in her family, 6-10 generations back, someone was a Native American. I understand the impulse. Warrens family, like half of the white people in North America, had some half-baked frontier fablepart Leatherstocking Tales, part Dances With Wolvesabout intermarriage with some or other native nationin the Warrens case, the Cherokee. She accepted it unquestioningly. Well, I never saw the passenger manifest that brought my great-grandfather over from Calabria, but I assume my grandmother is telling me the truth.



Hail storm kills 400 kangaroos and 150 goats in New South Wales, Australia "IndyWatch Feed World"

A flash storm that ripped through parts of drought ravaged Far West New South Wales has left a trail of death and destruction for two grazier families. Up to 400 kangaroos were found dead on Avondale station near Broken Hill, with the neighbouring property left to clean up over $20,000 worth of dead stock. Tegan Langford said what began as joy and elation over the much-needed rain, later turned into utter disbelief. "It was very eerie down there. It looked like something out of a movie where they say the world is going to end. Everything was just dead."


Tectonic past of Jupiter's moon Ganymede provides clues for life on active Europa "IndyWatch Feed World"

Ganymede was shaped by pronounced periods of tectonic activity in the past, according to a new paper. It's no longer active and its surface is more-or-less frozen in place now. But this discovery opens the door to better planning for future missions to Jupiter's other frozen moon Europa. Unlike Ganymede, Europa is still tectonically active, and understanding past geological activity on Ganymede helps us understand present-day Europa. Ganymede is one of Jupiter's moons, and it has a sub-surface ocean under a solid layer of frost and ice. The moon shows signs of strike-slip faulting, or strike-slip tectonism. On Earth, this type of tectonic activity created features like the San Andreas fault, a seismically-active region at the boundary between the Pacific Plate and the North American Plate. Europa is considered a prime target in the search for life in our Solar System because of its sub-surface ocean. Europa is exposed to Jupiter's intense radiation, but the icy sphere surrounding...

Afghan activist Malalai Joya praises the brave women of Kurdistan

AFGHAN former politician Malalai Joya hailed the brave women of Kurdistan as a source of inspiration today, praising them for leading the fight against jihadist terror in Syria.

The activist and writer was ejected from the Afghan parliament in 2007 after she criticised the presence of warlords and criminals among her fellow legislators.

She said people dont feel safe in Afghanistan, noting that, after nearly two decades of war, bombs, suicide blasts, drone attacks, public executions, rape and gang rape, abduction and other tragedies threaten the life of our people every second.

Ms Joya, however, struck a hopeful note as she spoke of the ongoing resistance to brutal regimes across the world.

There is always light and hope, no matter how dark and long the tunnel. It is my belief, and history has shown, that oppression cannot prevail forever. There will always be revolutionary struggle by the masses that will break the back of oppressors, no matt...

Purge of independent media: A coordinated attack by the MIC? "IndyWatch Feed World"

Victims of Facebook's most recent purge should not forget the connections between the social media giant and the Western Military-Industrial Complex. On Thursday, Facebook announced they were unpublishing, or purging, over 500 pages and 200 accounts who are accused of spreading political spam. Several of these pages and writers were also removed from Twitter on the same day. "Today, we're removing 559 Pages and 251 accounts that have consistently broken our rules against spam and coordinated inauthentic behavior," Facebook stated in a blog post. Facebook states that the people behind this alleged spam "create networks of Pages using fake accounts or multiple accounts with the same names" and "post the same clickbait posts in dozens of Facebook Groups." Essentially, Facebook is accusing these pages of writing articles related to politics and then using the social media platform to.... post the articles in as many places as possible to reach as many people as possible.

Facebook Censors Viral Video Detailing True Legacy of Christopher Columbus "IndyWatch Feed World"

With nothing but a vague violation of community standards note and offering no ability to appeal the decision, Facebook has once again blocked a piece of critical journalismthis time a short documentary video depicting the brutal legacy of Christopher Columbusfrom its global online platform.

The short videoproduced by Double Down Newsand titled The true legacy of Christopher Columbus: Western Civilisationfeatures author and journalist George Monbiot recounting the infamous European explorers history of subjugation and brutalization of the Indigenous people he encountered when he arrived in the so-called New World in the late 15th Century.

After being up for more than a week, and raking up more than 900,000 views, DNN co-founder Yannis Mendez says the video, a serious piece of historical journalism, was deleted by Facebook on Tuesday without warning, a specific reason, or any avenue of recourse.

In the piece, Mendez explains, Monbiot recounts the horrors of history in vivid detail. Therefore, at times, we understand the film may have been uncomfortable for some to watch. A number of visuals used, taken from the film 1492 and historical documentary footage, were graphic in nature. Facebook could have opted to put a warning screen on the video, which we would of had no problem with.

As of this writing, the video remains deleted from Facebookit was originally posted at this linkand its producers have been given no further explanation for why it was taken down. The video remains available on YouTube.

In response to its deletion by Facebook, DDN, Monbiot and others appealed for people to speak out against Facebooks censorship and demanded the video be restored:


US may impose sanctions on firms engaged in Syrian reconstruction "IndyWatch Feed World"

The US administration is designing a new strategy of actions in Syria that would envisage the possibility of imposing sanctions on Russian and Iranian companies engaged in the reconstruction of Syria after the civil war, the NBC News broadcaster reported, citing sources with knowledge of the situation. The strategy would not provide for direct clashes with the forces controlled by the Iranian government, as the US military has a right to attack the Iranian troops only in case of self-defense, the NBC News broadcaster reported on Tuesday. Instead, the strategy reportedly focuses on political and diplomatic efforts toward forcing Iranian armed forces out of Syria, namely, via putting financial pressure on them. Three people with knowledge of the plan told NBC News that the United States was set to hinder Syria's reconstruction by withdrawing its aid from the areas where the Russian and the Iranian forces are present, and also introducing sanctions against the Russian and the Iranian...

G7 member states' foreign ministers are calling for punishing everyone responsible for the disappearance of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi in Istanbul, the joint statement said.

'Guilty until proven innocent'? Trump pads his bets by no rush to judgement in Khashoggi case "IndyWatch Feed World"

US President Donald Trump is pushing back on accusations that Saudi Arabia killed a journalist inside a consulate in Turkey, calling them a case of holding Riyadh "guilty until proven innocent." "Here we go again with you're guilty until proven innocent," the president told AP in an interview on Tuesday evening, when asked about the widespread condemnation of Saudi Arabia over the disappearance of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.
