"Only In Such Moments..." "IndyWatch Feed World"

"The truth is that our finest moments are most likely to occur when we are feeling deeply uncomfortable, unhappy, or unfulfilled. For it is only in such moments, propelled by our discomfort, that we are likely to step out of our ruts and start searching for different ways or truer answers."

Trump cranks up North Korea threats as Pyongyang holds anti-U.S. rally "IndyWatch Feed World"

Trump cranks up North Korea threats as Pyongyang holds anti-U.S. rally | 24 Sept 2017 | U.S. President Donald Trump dialed up the rhetoric against North Korea again at the weekend, warning the countrys foreign minister that he and leader Kim Jong Un "won't be around much longer", as Pyongyang staged a major anti-U.S. rally. North Korea's Foreign Minister Ri Yong Ho told the United Nations General Assembly on Saturday that targeting the U.S. mainland with its rockets was inevitable after "Mr Evil President" Trump called Pyongyang's leader a "rocket man" on a suicide mission. Trump and Kim have traded increasingly threatening and personal insults as Pyongyang races toward its goal of developing a nuclear-tipped missile capable of reaching the United States - something Trump has vowed to prevent.

Korea is the US 'Open Door' to China "IndyWatch Feed World"

How many citizens have ever asked themselves what the United States is doing in Korea in the first place? In November of 1945, two months after the surrender of Japan, Army Chief of Staff General George Marshall spoke to President Truman and the chief figures of his cabinet about his fears of a "the tragic consequences of a divided China" as Chinese Nationalist forces and Communists resumed their struggle for power and Soviet forces seized control of large areas of Manchuria. The resumption of Soviet power in Manchuria, Marshall emphasized, would result "in the defeat or loss of the major purpose of our war with Japan" (emphasis added). What could the general have meant by such a statement? What WAS the "major purpose" of the Pacific war? Most Americans are taught that the foremost reason the United States went to war with Japan was the attack on Pearl Harbor. But the reality was that the U.S. and Japan had been on a collision course since the 1920s, and by 1940, in the midst of the global depression, were locked in a mortal struggle over who would ultimately benefit most from the markets and resources of Greater China and East Asia. Japan's Greater East Asia Co-Prosperity Sphere was steadily closing the "Open Door" to American penetration of and access to the profitable riches of Asia at the critical moment. As Japan militarily took control of East Asia, the U.S. moved the Pacific Fleet to Hawaii in striking distance of Japan, imposed economic sanctions, embargoed steel and oil, and in August 1941 issued an overt ultimatum to quit China and Vietnam "or else." Seeing the latter as the threat it was, Japan undertook what to Tokyo was the pre-emptive strike at Hawaii. The real reason the U.S. opposed the Japanese in Asia is never discussed and is a forbidden subject in the establishment media, as are the real motives of American foreign policy writ large.

Merkel faces tough road to form government "IndyWatch Feed World"

German Chancellor Angela Merkel is under pressure to form her government. wikimedia.org/wiki/User:%D7%90

Angela Merkel admits she faces tough talks before she can forge a new coalition after her conservative bloc posted its worst result of her 12 years as German chancellor in an election overshadowed by a far-right surge.

Merkel declined to say whether she expected to form a new coalition by the end of the year, having ruled out minority government after Sundays election.

I dont see that, Merkel told a televised election post-mortem by party leaders.

I have the intention that we should come to a stable government in Germany.

Instead, Merkels Christian Democrats (CDU) and their Christian Social Union (CSU) allies are now likely to be forced to negotiate a new, untried and potentially fractious three-party coalition.

Merkel has been forced to launch talks with the Greens and the pro-business Free Democrats (SDP) after her current partner, the Social Democrats (SPD) crashed to an historic low of just 20.9 per cent.

A Merkel-led coalition with the FDP and the Greens would have a narrow parliamentary majority of 387 seats in the new Bundestag of 705 lawmakers.

Its perfectly clear that the electorate has directed us to go into opposition, said SPD chief Martin Schulz.

Underlining the difficulties facing Merkel, the FDP, Green and CSU leaders clashed during the often acrimonious hour-long conversation.

Green Party leader Katrin Goring-Eckardt warned that talks to form a new so-called Jamaica coalition named so because the colours of the three parties are black, red and green led by Merkel could be difficult.

We are not easy partners, she told supporters.

Support for the CDU-CSU dropped to 32.8 per cent on Sunday, down from the 41.5 per cent it reached in the last election in 2013, according to projections by public broadcaster ZDF.

Merkel also suffered a 12 percentage point swing against her in her own northeast electorate.

The results mean the CDU-CSU will have to win back the voters who had switched to the far-right Alternative for Germany (AfD) by listening to their concerns and their fears and primarily by conducting good politics, Merkel told supporter...

Nearly 35,000 flee rumbling Bali volcano "IndyWatch Feed World"

Mt Agung, Bali. (wikipedia)

Mt Agung, Bali. (wikipedia)

Nearly 35,000 people have fled the rumbling Mount Agung volcano on the island of Bali, an official says.

Indonesias disaster mitigation agency said the number of people evacuating their homes surrounding the volcano had tripled since Friday amid growing alarm that Mt Agung could erupt at any moment.

We expect the number to rise, as many still remain unaccounted for and some even have fled out of Bali, said Sutopo Purwo Nugroho, a spokesman for Indonesias National Disaster Mitigation Agency (BNPB).

The displaced are being sheltered in 238 evacuation centres in Karangasem district as well as in neighbouring Badung, Bangli, Buleleng, Gianyar, Denpasar, Klungkung districts on Bali.

He said the number of people in the shelters has fluctuated since many often risk returning to their homes during the day to tend to their livestock.

He said there will be a special team from the local husbandry agency to handle the livestocks evacuation.

BNPB is also installing road signs to mark the safe and risky zones around the 3,014-metre-high volcano.

Karangasem district administration has declared a 14-day emergency period, which may change should the volcano erupt.

Mount Agung, which last erupted for almost a year in 1963 to 1964, continues to show increased volcanic activity.

The Reptilian threat and the Covert MILAB Wars "IndyWatch Feed World"

 

Mature content involving covert deep black military cross-species operations and Planet X.

The discussion continues from our last video covering DNA secrets, 'black goo' and true royal bloodlines being placed into surrogate families..This segment follows up with a recent account Lauda experienced and recalled during Hurricane Irma's crossing affecting the east coast U.S.A throughout the September 10-12 period. It involved a deep black military operation deployed to combat hostile reptilian forces that had surfaced in a more remote vicinity around the Florida/Georgia region according to her impressions/perception (more likely Georgia upon deeper investigation).

'Milabs' (military abductees) are commonly utilized within clone bodies to perform their highly trained and skilled tasks across a variety of military based platforms. They can work alongside or even lead other highly trained and classified 'special forces' teams, as many 'milabs' have been selected from early childhood based upon their metaphysical properties and DNA Potential that can be further manipulated for militarized purpose/service, including countering 'inter-dimensional alien' threats as part of such covert missions.

Boats on the Water, Captain at the Helm and the Devil in the Deep Blue Sea. "IndyWatch Feed World"

Dog Poet Transmitting.......

If you are not seeking inspiration from a particular source and unless your karma is very good, or you have been selected for specific work that is automatically attended with inspiration or... by some facet of mysterious grace, you will wind up with the default inspiration of your times and that can be good or... very bad, depending on the nature of the times. Imagine life as a boat sailing on the ocean. Imagine the ocean as being in a state consistent with the times. Add to this picture the many varieties of boat. Some are hardly seaworthy. Some are very seaworthy and... you can look at that as karma. In times of change, the ocean is unruly and the boats learn whether they are seaworthy or not. The fate of the passengers relies on the integrity of the boat and the integrity of the captain. If they are both strong then the fury of the sea becomes secondary because... there is at least one captain I know about who is the master of the seas. He can calm them with the raise of his hands. He can walk upon them if he wills.

According to my perspective there is no time when it is not profitable to have this captain at the helm of your ship. It is true that when the seas are calm such concerns do not arise. It is also true that the sea will not always be calm. It is then that you need that captain aboard your ship. It is so much better to have that captain already aboard the ship than to find yourself in extreme circumstances, crying out for that captain. Take my word for this. As one of the luckiest men to ever be on this planet, I have seen the truth of this more often than I can recall. The challenges are not what they were because, over time, the captain has muted them, or otherwise they have been dispensed with by having passed through them. There are degrees of 'presence' that the captain exhibits. For a time one might be far less aware of the presence. As time passes and the presence increases, so does one's awareness of the presence. If one persists in the practice of this presence, it will become total and one will not be able to tell the difference between themselves and the presence. That is THE objective and it is a certain result if one persists in the practice of the presence.

MoD promises new support to Saudi security bodies, despite imminent juvenile executions "IndyWatch Feed World"

(Reprieve)  The Defence Secretary, Michael Fallon, has signed a security agreement with Saudi Arabia that appears to promise further training for Saudi police despite their use of torture and the death penalty.

The move comes despite Saudi Arabias recent resumption of executions for protest-related offences, following unfair trials in the Kingdoms special anti-terrorism court (the Specialised Criminal Court, or SCC). Several juveniles face imminent execution for attending protests, including Abdulkarim al-Hawaj, Mujtaba al-Sweikat, Salman al-Quraish, Ali al-Nimr, Dawood al-Marhoon and Abdullah al-Zaher. A disabled young man, Munir al-Adam, also faces execution.

All seven were convicted in the Specialised Criminal Court on the basis of forced, false confessions extracted through torture by Saudi security forces. The charges against the seven include the chanting of slogans, and the use of social media and messaging services like Whatsapp.

Defence Secretary Michael Fallon signed the agreement yesterday with the Saudi Crown Prince, saying the security agreement would further cement the UKs long standing relationship with the Kingdom and allow Saudi Arabia to better protect her national security, including counter-terrorism, intelligence, training and education.

Human rights organisation Reprieve has previously raised concerns that existing UK security cooperation with Saudi Arabia including cybersecurity cooperation, and the training of Saudi police in investigation techniques could contribute to the use of torture and the death penalty against peaceful protesters, including juveniles. In 2016, documents from the UK College of Policing, obtained by Reprieve, revealed the UK was training Saudi police in digital forensics skills that the College feared could be used to identify individuals who later go on to be tortured. The training was carried out without safeguards, it later emerged.

Commenting, Bella Sankey a Deputy Director of Reprieve  said:

Michael Fallon is offering yet more support to a Saudi security apparatus that is currently stepping up its use of the death penalty against protesters. There are already grounds to believe UK training could have helped Saudi police identify protesters who were later tort...

First Do No Harm "IndyWatch Feed World"

Let me preface what I am about to say by stating that I have the utmost esteem for mainstream medicines skill in emergency situations the do or die surgeries, the dispensing of powerful life-saving drugs necessary in that setting are second to none; and its mastery of cosmetic surgery in cases of deformities and the advances made in prosthetics are nothing less than spectacular. These are what make mainstream medicine great.

I would also like to add that I am not an expert of any kind. I hold no degrees or certifications, and neither do I represent, belong to, or work for any party, organization or corporation. I speak for myself, a sixty-two year old woman, and from my experiences with, and extensive research of, a topic I find fascinating, intriguing and bothersome mainstream medicine and how the belief in its infallibility harms us in so many ways.

The pompous certainty of mainstream medicines powerful proponents be they multi-billion dollar pharmaceutical companies, medical associations, disease-specific charities, government agencies, Madison Avenue selling the diseases and the pills, TV or magazines, the news media parroting its cash cows every claim combined have most people, hook, line and sinker, believing in the impeccable record of mainstream medicine. No questions asked.

Women allowed in Saudi sports stadiums for first time ever "IndyWatch Feed World"

Saudi Arabia is celebrating the Kingdom's 87th anniversary with music, folk dance performances, and fireworks, but is also showing signs of reform by allowing women to enter public spaces typically reserved for men only, in a historic first. Hundreds of women attended celebrations at the King Fahd stadium in the capital, Riyadh on Saturday, which is normally forbidden due to strict public segregation rules under the Wahhabi brand of Sunni Islam which informs Saudi law. "We hope in the future that there will be no restrictions on our entrance to the stadium," Um Abdulrahman, a woman from the northwestern city of Tabuk, told AFP. "For many years ago I have hoped that women will be given the same rights as men." Women were seated away from single men and had to enter through a separate gate, but it does mark a change in the notoriously austere and hardline societal norms in the Kingdom.

Tunisia bans forced anal exams for suspected homosexuals "IndyWatch Feed World"

Tunisia will finally ban forced anal examinations of men the authorities suspect of being homosexuals, the country's minister for human rights said. Homosexuality is illegal in the North African state, carrying a prison sentence of up to three years. Now, the practice of forcing men to undergo an anal examination is due to end, although homosexuality will remain illegal. "These exams can no longer be imposed by force, physical or moral, or without the consent of the person concerned,"Mehdi Ben Gharbia told AFP. Human rights groups have long called for an end to the examinations, labeling them as "cruel" and "inhuman."

Putin expresses concern about AI tech to Yandex head - "When will AI eat us?" "IndyWatch Feed World"

Vladimir Putin may secretly be on the side of Elon Musk in their indirect debate over the threat posed by artificial intelligence (AI). As Arkady Volozh, the head of Yandex, pitched him on the technology's potential, the Russian president inquired about when AI 'will eat us'. The question seemed to baffle the head of Russia's biggest tech firm, who was giving Putin a tour on the company's Moscow HQ on Thursday. "I hope never", he replied after taking a pause to gather his thoughts. "It's not the first machine to be better than humans at something. An excavator digs better than we do with a shovel. But we don't get eaten by excavators. A car moves faster than we do..." But Putin seemed unconvinced. "They don't think," he remarked.

US special ops forces and hardware spotted at ISIS positions north of Deir ez-Zor - Russian MoD "IndyWatch Feed World"

US special ops forces and hardware spotted at ISIS positions north of Deir ez-Zor - Russian MoD | 24 Sept 2017 | The Russian Ministry of Defense has released aerial images which they say show US Army special forces equipment north of the town of Deir er-Zor, where ISIS militants are deployed. US Army special units provide free passage for the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) through the battle formations of Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL [but still I-CIA-SIS]) terrorists, the ministry said in a statement. "Facing no resistance of the ISIS militants, the SDF units are advancing along the left shore of the Euphrates towards Deir ez-Zor," the statement reads. The newly released images "clearly show that US special ops are stationed at the outposts previously set up by ISIS militants." This could mean that the US military staff "feel absolutely safe" in the area which is held by the terrorists, the Ministry of Defense stated. [Now, stop calling me a 'conspiracy theorist.' This is about the hundredth article I've found detailing the *fact* that ISIS is a wholly-owned and operated CIA front in the globalists' war on Syria.

Iraq wants nuclear power - U.S. war on Iran just got more difficult "IndyWatch Feed World"

Iraq is today, little more than an aspiring Islamic Republic on the Iranian model. The only reason for this is the US war on Iraq in 2003. While much of Ibrahim al-Jaafari's speech to the UN dealt with Iraq's recent successes and long term political strategy to combat Salafist terrorism, the Iraqi Foreign Minister's most important remark made during his address to the UN General Assembly was that Iraq seeks to exercise its legal option to create nuclear energy facilities. Comment: Jafari's brief remark: "Iraq calls for assistance from nuclear countries to build a nuclear reactor for peaceful purposes in Iraq to acquire the nuclear technology." This is not the first time Iraq has sought to being producing its own nuclear energy. Beginning in 1979, French nuclear scientists began building a nuclear reactors near Baghdad called Tammuz 1 and 2. The reactors are also referred to by their French name Osirak. In spite of guarantees from the French scientists that the reactors were incapable of weapons grade enrichment, Israel resorted to numerous illegal measures to stop the project from being successfully competed. This included a state-sponsored assassination of a scientist in Paris. In 1980, agents of Israel's secret intelligence service, Mossad, killed Yahya El Mashad, an Egyptian national in his hotel room due to his role in the Iraqi nuclear energy programme.

Syria used newly arrived advanced military tanks, vehicles from Russia for battle of Deir ez-Zor "IndyWatch Feed World"

The Syrian Army had received a large consignment of modern Russian-made tanks and military vehicles last month and utilized them in the recent anti-ISIL operation to cross the Euphrates River in Deir Ezzur province, a Russian media outlet reported on Sunday. The Arabic-language website of Russia's state news agency, Sputnik, reported that a large consignment, including Russian-made T-62 tanks and BRM-1K military vehicles was delivered to the Syrian army via the Tartus port in August, adding that the newly-arrived tanks and military vehicles assisted the Syrian soldiers to have an easier and fasters move while crossing the Euphrates River to hit ISIL's defense lines on the Eastern bank of the river. The BRM-1K military vehicle in designed to carry out reconnaissance operation in the battlefield and the T-62 tanks are equipped with 115mm cannons.

U.S. acknowledges unprecedented "face-to-face" military meeting with Russia over Syria - Russians will retaliate against any SDF provocation "IndyWatch Feed World"

The moment the first Russian jet landed in Syria at the invitation of the Assad government in 2015, Putin placed himself in the driver's seat concerning the international proxy war in the Levant. From a strategic standpoint the armed opposition stood no chance of ever tipping the scales against Damascus from that moment onward. And though US relations with Russia became more belligerent and tense partly as a result of that intervention, it meant that Russia would set the terms of how the war would ultimately wind down. Russia's diplomatic and strategic victory in the Middle East was made clear this week as news broke of "secret" and unprecedented US-Russia face to face talks on Syria. The Russians reportedly issued a stern warning to the US military, saying that it will respond in force should the Syrian Army or Russian assets come under fire by US proxies.

Many Florida Residents Have Been Without Power for More Than a Week and Theres No End in Sight "IndyWatch Feed World"

Many Florida Residents Have Been Without Power for More Than a Week and Theres No End in Sight | Many-Florida-Residents-Have-Been-Without-Power-for-More-Than-a-Week-and-Theres-No-End-in-Sight | Environment Special Interests US News

Hundreds of thousands of homes in Florida are still without power more than a week after Hurricane Irma barrelled through on her destructive path. And, unfortunately, theres no clear end in sight for them, as infrastructure was so thoroughly destroyed in certain areas. With an average temperature in the 90s, days in Florida are miserable indeed for those without power.

Restoration of power is a slow process in some areas.

According to an article in the Washinton Post, it could be a while before everyone has their power restored.

Duke Energy Florida said it would restore power to most customers by Sunday, a week after Irma made its first landfall in Florida. Some harder-hit areas could take longer due to the rebuilding effort.

Gould said that FPL [Florida Power & Light], which powers about half of the state, expected customers on Floridas East Coast to have power back by the end of the weekend. People in western Florida, closer to Irmas path, should have it back by Sept. 22. That estimate does not include places with severe flooding or tornado damage, he said, and those areas could also face a longer wait to be able to switch on the lights

In Key West, it remained unclear when power, cellphone service or supplies would be available again. (source)

There is infighting among editorial hierarchy at The Washington Post about it's only "in-depth" story about the expanding Imran Awan and Hina Alvi investigation, according to sources. The story was apparently put together with the cooperation of Awan's lawyer Chris Gowen and sweeping legal team. No FBI sources are quoted in a story dealing with a federal investigation. And more than one news veteran at the Post agreed the end result was a "puff piece" that stinks like a cheap press release written by a first-year Congressional flak. "I don't care if the guy is guilty or not," said one Post editor. "But let's tell the story, the entire story based on what the public already knows. We didn't do that. I think we tried to create another story. "It's a goddam embarrassment."

US, militant forces destroy key American base in retreat "IndyWatch Feed World"

A key American military base in Syria's southwestern desert region has been destroyed by withdrawing United States and Coalition-backed Free Syrian Army forces. The installation in question is the Zakaf Base which was established earlier this year in southeastern Homs near the Iraqi border. The Zakaf Base served as a secondary Coalition garrison to the more important al-Tanf Base further west of it. Here the Coalition trained Free Syrian Army mercenaries and oversaw their operations in southwestern Syria. According to reports, neither the United States nor the Free Syrian Army plans to use the Zakaf Base anymore and in the process of abandoning it have also chosen to destroy it in order to prevent the garrison's utilization by any other armed party. The official reason for the withdrawal of American and Free Syrian Army forces has not been stated, although it is likely linked to a recent agreement been the US, Russia and Jordan that will eventually see the full withdraw of Coalition troops from southern Syria and, in theory, the surrender of militant-held areas in the region to the Syrian Arab Army.

Beirut Ranked 101st Most Stressful City in the World "IndyWatch Feed World"

An online website (Zipjet) ranked the least and most stressful cities in the world using various factors such as green spaces, public transport, mental health, noise pollution, sunshine hours, air pollution, traffic and race equality. To come up with the list, they studied 500 locations based on data relating to the cities themselves, pollution, finance and the citizens. Within these, they analysed criteria such as traffic, security and mental health issues.

Its not the most reliable study especially that its coming from an online laundry and dry cleaning service but the list does make sense.

Beirut was ranked 101st out of 150 cities and came behind Abu Dhabi, Kuwait City, Dubai, Doha, Manama, Muscat, Amman, Riyadh and Jeddah. The least stressful Arab city is Abu Dhabi while the most stressful one is Baghdad in Iraq.

Syrian FM blasts US, Turkey, Israel in proclamation against terror and empire at UN, praises Russia and Iran "IndyWatch Feed World"

The Foreign Minister and Deputy Prime Minister of the Syrian Arab Republic, Walid Al-Muallem has addressed the General Assembly of the United Nations in a powerful and defiant speech which lacerated the enemies of Syria while praising the will, determination and dignity of the Syrian people and the Syrian Arab Army. Walid Al-Muallem began by stating that in the present conflict ridden world, there is a standoff between two forces. The first force seeks to dominate the world and re-establish a unipolar order which fuels chaos and war while violating international humanitarian laws. This is a clear reference to the United States and its allies.

Youre Likely A Lot Less Prepared For Crisis Than You Realize "IndyWatch Feed World"

It seems as if Mother Nature is waking up. Either shes trying to send humans an important warning, or perhaps shes just out to kill us all.

Massive storms across the globe, earthquakes, and collapsing ecosystems all combine to remind us that we are indeed intimately connected to our planets natural systems. And that our well-being rests on staying on Mother Natures good side.

Well, Mother Nature has seemed pretty pissed at us of late. Her recent punishments should be taken as a disciplinary wake-up call: Its time.

Its time to prepare, everyone. Way past time.

Deir ez-Zor: Russian lieutenant-general killed in ISIS shelling "IndyWatch Feed World"

Lieutenant-General Valery Asapov, of the Russian armed forces, has been killed after coming under shelling from Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) militants near Deir ez-Zor, the Russian Defense Ministry has announced.

Asapov has been described as one of the senior Russian military advisers in Syria. "As a result of a sudden mortar shelling by IS militants, Lieutenant-General Valery Asapov was fatally wounded by an exploding shell," the MoD said. In recognition of his services, Lieutenant-General Asapov is to be presented with a state decoration posthumously. Earlier in September the Syrian armed forces, working closely with the Russian Air Force, successfully broke the siege of Deir ez-Zor by Islamic State, and residents' lives have begun to return to some semblance of normality. With the highway between Deir ez-Zor and Palmyra back under government control, Russian and Syrian humanitarian aid has finally been able to flow through to the formerly besieged inhabitants.

The other story: The Iran 'Nuclear Deal' leads to war, not peace "IndyWatch Feed World"

The so-called Iran "nuclear deal," officially known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) was hailed as "historic" when the United States among other nations became a signatory of it. Then US President Barack Obama, attempted to make convincing statements regarding America's commitment to the deal. However, America's rhetoric compared to its actual actions diplomatically, militarily, and geopolitically told two different stories. US Was Waging Proxy War with Iran when the Deal was Signed The deal was created in 2015, 4 full years since the United States engineered a destructive proxy war in Syria - one of Iran's closest and most crucial regional allies. By 2015, the United States had already committed to direct military intervention in Syria, occupying Syrian territory, directly arming, funding, and providing air support for militants seizing Syrian territory, and even constructing military bases within Syria's borders. By 2015, the United States was revealed to have poured billions of dollars into arming militants ranging from Kurdish groups in Syria's northeast, to militants aligned to Al Qaeda and even the so-called "Islamic State" (ISIS) in northern and southern Syria. While US President Barack Obama posed as conciliatory toward Iran, the US was steeped deeply in not only a proxy war against Syria, but ultimately a proxy war aimed directly at Iran. According to years of US policy papers, dismantling Iran's allies in Syria and Lebanon were crucial prerequisites toward eventually undermining and overthrowing the government and political order in Iran itself.

Any better than Hillary? Six ways Trump now mirrors Clinton "IndyWatch Feed World"

Last month, Donald Trump showed Americans that he has one goal in mind -- a goal that has been shared by all of his predecessors and his ostensible enemy, Hillary Clinton -- and a goal he vehemently opposed until he was elected. Endless, brutal, futile, and, of course, profitable-war. Just like Obama, Trump ran on a platform of ending the war in Afghanistan and bringing the troops home. And, just like Obama, he lied. Whether or not he is being controlled by deep state operatives forcing his hand into an Afghan surge or if he's doing it out of his own stupidity is irrelevant as the result will be the same - dead American soldiers, dead Afghan citizens, and more terrorism. Trump knows this too.

A World Doomed in a Never Ending War "IndyWatch Feed World"

A World Doomed in a Never Ending War | world-collapse-war | Special Interests Trump US News War Propaganda World News

Are you disappointed with Donald Trumps bellicose continuing with the deployment in Afghanistan? Well, if you are not; you should be. Predicting a non-ideological President, who prides himself on making pragmatic decisions, raises prognostication to a new level of mystical proportions. Instilling hope during an election campaign seldom translates into dynamic action on every pledge made. Defending Trump no matter how many times he walks back on a promise is not the standard to judge his administration. Call him a turnaround artist if you wish, but the reality of the power elite inside the military, intelligence agencies and the state department is showing just how far they are willing to go to maintain their force of destructive rule.

The most astute Jack Hunter writes in 16 years ago, we began a war on terror that will never end. His purge from the Rand Paul staff was a signal that forecast just how difficult it is to drain the swamp.

When Donald Trump ran for president, he promised to end the nation building, particularly in a country like Afghanistan. He was going to be the leader who would reset Americas wandering foreign policy recklessness. Now Trump has completely flip-flopped, announcing the U.S. wont be leaving Afghanistan anytime soon the very definition of the nation building the president deplored as a private citizen and as a candidate.

Perhaps worst of all, the terrorists won. Fear perpetuates the Forever War, in which America has been stuck since 9/11. The goals of Osama bin Laden were met.

Trump confident 'N Korean leadership won't be around much longer' "IndyWatch Feed World"

"Just heard Foreign Minister of North Korea speak at U.N. If he echoes thoughts of Little Rocket Man, they won't be around much longer!" Trump tweeted in response to Foreign Minister Ri Yong-ho's comments. Trump threatened to "totally destroy" North Korea (population 26 million) during his first UN address Thursday. "It is only a forlorn hope to consider any chance that the DPRK [North Korea] would be shaken an inch or change its stance due to the harsher sanctions by the hostile forces," Ri told the UN General Assembly on Saturday, adding that it was "inevitable" that North Korean weapons systems would target the US mainland after Trump's ongoing barrage of insults leveled against Kim Jong-un.

President Moreno: Ecuador to extend Assange's asylum, fears for his life "IndyWatch Feed World"

Ecuador has decided to extend the political asylum granted to WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange amid ongoing fears for his safety. "Ecuador decided to provide political asylum to Assange because it thought that his life is in danger and Assange thought the same," President Lenin Moreno said speaking to RT Espaol. "There is no death penalty in Ecuador, so our country has the right to grant asylum to Assange. We will continue to give him patronage for as long as we assume that his life may be in danger." Assange has resided in the Ecuadorean embassy in London since 2012, after seeking refuge there to avoid extradition to Sweden over rape charges. Swedish authorities withdrew the allegations earlier this year, however, UK police said Assange would still be arrested if he left the embassy because he had broken the conditions of his bail and failed to surrender to authorities. Moreno noted that his government has urged Assange not to comment on Ecuadorian politics, which the Australian has ignored. "He continued to express his opinion on this issue and we let him to do that in order to avoid restriction of freedom of speech, but we earnestly urge him to abstain from that," Moreno said. In May, Assange tweeted that WikiLeaks will publish evidence of corruption in Ecuador if it receives it. In the interview, Moreno also discussed his country's relationship with Russia saying Ecuador needs to "get a lot closer to countries like Russia." He thanked the Russian government for allowing thousands of Ecuadorian students to study in Russia.

Trump's stump: 'Strange' night in Alabama, Kim Jong-un and the NFL "IndyWatch Feed World"

Donald Trump gave one of his signature stream of consciousness speeches in Huntsville on Friday night as he tried to get out the vote for embattled Alabama Republican senator Luther Strange. During an address inside the Wernher Von Braun Center that lasted an hour and 20 minutes, the president called North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un "Little Rocket Man", said NFL owners should cut players who kneel for the national anthem and returned to familiar targets like John McCain and Hillary Clinton. Strange is facing a runoff election on Tuesday for the GOP nomination to hold the seat he was appointed to in February. The former state attorney general was handed the seat after former senator Jeff Sessions was appointed attorney general by Trump. Strange is currently trailing in the polls against Roy Moore, an ardent social conservative who has twice been removed as chief justice of the Alabama Supreme Court.

Newly Engineered Antibody Can Fight Back Against 99 Percent Of HIV Strains "IndyWatch Feed World"

By Brad Jones via Futurism

A new study has produced an antibody thats able to kill off 99 percent of HIV strains. The protein is made up of three broadly neutralizing antibodies, and it is said to be more effective than any naturally occurring antibody thats been discovered.

Advanced Antibodies

Research carried out by the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH) in conjunction with pharmaceutical firm Sanofi has produced an antibody capable of attacking 99 percent of HIV strains. The International Aids Society has heralded the finding as an exciting breakthrough.

The human body has difficulty fighting HIV because of the way that the virus changes and mutates a single patient can have numerous unique strains of the infection present in their body simultaneously. However, a slim minority of people who suffer from HIV eventually develop a means of battling back in the form of broadly neutralizing antibodies.

These proteins are capable of killing off numerous HIV strains at once, so for this joint study between NIH and Sanofi, researchers set out to find a way to harness this natural defense.

Whenever incidents like Fridays Parsons Green commuter train bombing occur, theyre more likely to be state-sponsored false flags than terrorist acts.

 

Given the history of these type attacks in America and Europe, repeating a familiar pattern, its wise to be suspicious, questioning the validity of official reports, not accepting them at face value.

 

The motive behind false flags is clear, fear-mongering schemes to convince people to sacrifice fundamental freedoms for greater security not realizing theyll lose both.

 

Theyre also a way to justify other unjustifiable policies. The 1933 Reichstag fire enabled Hitler to assume dictatorial powers once German President von Hindenburg died in August 1934.

Speaking of Independence Is Getting Harder for Hong Kongers "IndyWatch Feed World"

(GV)  The leaders of 10 universities in Hong Kong are condemning abuses of free speech on campuses. In a joint statement published on September 15, university chancellors also expressed firm opposition to the idea of Hong Kong breaking away from China.

Two days later, a Hong Kong politician from the pro-Beijing camp labeled those who advocate for independence as enemies who should be killed.

The two events highlighted not only the precarious state of free expression in Hong Kong, but also tensions over the citys future. Hong Kongers enjoy more freedoms than their counterparts in mainland China under a principle known as One Country, Two Systems. This autonomy is enshrined in Hong Kongs governing doctrine, known as the Basic Law, which went into force in 1997 when the United Kingdom handed the former colony over to China.

According to the Basic Law, the city shall retain its way of life for 50 years, or until 2047. After that date, Hong Kongs fate is uncertain.

What is certain is that in recent years, Beijing has been more forcefully asserting its influence over Hong Kong. Those who support more democratic rights, such as genuine universal suffrage, or outright independence have faced fierce repression.

The university administrators joint statement, which was noticeably brief, was perceived as a response to the appearance of pro-Hong Kong independence slogans on campuses since September 4. The statement in full read:

We treasure freedom of expression, but we condemn its recent abuses. Freedom of expression is not absolute, and like all freedoms it comes with responsibilities. All universities undersigned agree that we do not support Hong Kong independence and believe that it contravenes the Basic Law.

Who's who in Germany's Federal election "IndyWatch Feed World"

Germany will soon discover which parties will be in the federal parliament (the Bundestag) for the next four years, as the final stage is underway. The election kicked off at 6:00 GMT on Sunday, and RT looks into who is trying to win the hearts of German voters. The German people will vote on Sunday to elect the members of the 19th Bundestag. Over 30 parties made it onto the ballots in at least one German state, but there are only six major political forces expected to hold seats in parliament. German politics is not very welcoming for newcomers as, other than the CDU, SPD and FDP - which formed the modern Bundestag in the 1949 election - only two new parties have managed to squeeze into the parliament. The relative newcomers are The Left (Die Linke) and The Greens, whose predecessors entered parliament in the 1980s to early 1990s. However, this election will likely result in a new power entering the German parliament - Alternative for Germany (AfD), which has seen a surge in support over the past few years.

Listening to President Trump's conceited rhetoric about wiping out North Korea has an eerie resonance with the rhetoric of President Truman. Truman launched into the Korean War more than six decades ago with same arrogant, mythical presumptions of American virtue and self-ordained right to use overwhelming military force. For reasons of political self-preservation, Washington must live in denial of historical reality. US leaders out of necessity have to construct an alternative, fictional narrative for their nation's conduct. Because if historical reality were acknowledged, the rulers in Washington, and the whole edifice of presumed American greatness, would implode from the endemic moral corruption.

Are you one of the 84.1 million people in the United States who has been pre-diagnosed with diabetes? If so, here are practical steps you can take today to turn this looming crisis into a lifetime of better health.

Prediabetes, also referred to as impaired glucose tolerance, is the warning shot that says, Stop now, and turn around. Typically diagnosed through blood tests, a person is pre-diabetic if blood sugar is above normal, but not high enough for a formal diagnosis of diabetes, when tested on two separate occasions. The range for prediabetes, according to Mayo Clinic, is a fasting blood sugar level of 100 to 125 mg/dL (5.6 to 6.9 mmol/L). When blood sugar hits 126 mg/dL (7 mmol/L) or higher on two tests, a person has diabetes.1

Prediabetes affects a full one-third of adults in America, many of whom show no symptoms. According to Center for Disease Control (CDC) Director Brenda Fitzgerald, M.D., most of these individuals dont even know they are prediabetic.2 Left untreated, the majority will develop Type 2 diabetes within 5 years. Type 2, or adult-onsetdiabetes, is a serious condition that can lead to kidney failure, heart disease, blindness, neuropathy, leg amputations, and even death. According to the CDC, Type 2 diabetes represents 90% of all diabetes cases in the United States.

Why The Battles Against Liberalism, Globalism And The New World Order Are All Related "IndyWatch Feed World"

 

Why The Battles Against Liberalism, Globalism And The New World Order Are All Related | Clock-Image-Public-Domain-460x297 | Globalism Government Government Control Government Corruption New World Order Sleuth Journal Special Interests US News

Do you love liberty and freedom? If you ask that question to people randomly on the street, you are going to get the same answer over and over again. Everyone wants liberty and freedom, but what they dont understand is that there is an inverse relationship between the size of government and the amount of liberty and freedom that we get to enjoy. Every time a new law, rule or regulation is established, our liberties and our freedoms are restricted in some way. So the bigger government becomes, the less liberty and freedom we actually have.

On the federal level, there are now literally hundreds of thousands of laws, rules and regulations. And when you throw in the state and local levels, the total number of laws, rules and regulations governing all of our lives is in the millions. This is something that we learned about in law school, and it always stuck with me.

Of course we cant do away with government entirely, because then we would have anarchy. For example, we dont want the freedom to run around murdering one another at random. So it is very good to have laws against murder.

But in general, our founders intended for this to be a nation where government was limited and where our freedoms and liberties were maximized.

Sadly, what we have today is radically different from what our founders intended. Government has just gotten bigger and bigger over time, and this is true on the federal, state and local levels. And the bigger government gets, the more oppressive it tends to become. North Korea, Soviet Russia and Nazi Germany are three examples of what can happen when big government spins wildly out of control.

As I run for Congress, this is something that I am working very hard to educate people about. I am running on a pro-liberty platform, and that means that I want to try to restore the constitutional balance that our founders originally intended. In order to do that, we need to dramatically shrink the size of our federal government, and doing so would mean much more liberty and freedom for us all.

But you should see the loo...

Delusional NATO ex-Secretary General boasts 'Russia is trembling, let's finish it off with force' "IndyWatch Feed World"

Russian President Vladimir Putin agreed to the deployment of the UN contingent to the Donbass, because he was frightened by the US leadership's statements about the provision of lethal weapons to Ukraine. This was announced by the former NATO Secretary General Anders Rasmussen in Kiev at the "Yalta European Strategy" conference. "Putin understands that the price of continuing destabilization in Ukraine has become higher. Very often, political and diplomatic processes can be conducted through a clearly articulated threat of the use of force. I am confident that further pressure on Russia will help this process, " Rasmussen said. He believes that in order for the UN peacekeeping mission to become "realistic," it needs a mandate to control the border between Ukraine and Russia, and will have the power to protect "not only the OSCE, but the population." "If Russia accepts everything that I have listed, then it can be given a carrot in the form of lifting sanctions," Rasmussen added.

There Is a Creepy Black Planet That Devours All Visible Light "IndyWatch Feed World"

WASP-12b, a fiery and pitch black exoplanet, would not be your next vacation destination.

In fact, this pitch-black heavenly body has many characteristics that would keep space tourists away.

Most of the light which travels to WASP-12b doesnt come back again. The truth is, the black planet just doesnt reflect much of the light that it absorbs.

This exoplanet reflects little brightness, only 0.064 according to albedo measurements taken by the Hubble Space Telescopes spectrograph. This is less than what our moon reflects at 0.12 albedo. So, the black planet devours almost 94% of the light that falls onto it, and this is what makes it so unbelievably dark.

Lead researcher, Taylor Bell of the McGill University and the Institute for Research on Exoplanets in Canada, said,

We did not expect to find such a dark exoplanet. Most hot Jupiters reflect about 40% of starlight.

So, what is this talk of hot Jupiter

The label hot Jupiter is given to planets which orbit really close to their host star and they also have characteristics of being a giant gaseous planet. Our Jupiter is a giant gas planet, hence the nickname. WASP-12b is so close to its host that one year is like a day on earth. This close proximity causes the planet to be tidally locked, making rotation and orbit exactly the same. This, in turn, gives the planet a rather egg-shaped look.

Most other hot Jupiter planets are able to trap more of the light which they absorb, but not WASP-12b. This planet actually acts more like a star.

Bell said,

This new Hubble research further demonstrates the vast diversity among the strange population of hot Jupiters.

Day and night

Just like our moon has two sides which never change places, WASP-12b has one side of perpetual day and one side which remains forever in night. Temperatures vary quite a bit as well between day and night for this dark planet.

The side facing the sun endures temperatures of about 4,000 degrees Fahrenheit, while the nighttime side has a lower temp of 2000 degrees Fahrenheit, this means the side of perpetual night experiences clouds formed by water vapor.

Here are a few interesting facts about the black planet. Deep within the atmosphere o...

SOTT FOCUS: Behind the Headlines: What Ever Happened to the New World Order? "IndyWatch Feed World"

The New World Order. Is it here? Is it on the way? What does the New World Order really mean? Leaving aside the conspiracy theory definition where a secret elite has been planning to replace nations states and install a 'one world government', a few notable 20th century politicians used the term (most of them from Western nations) to describe a new period of history characterized by a dramatic change in world political thought and the balance of power after the 20th century's 2 world wars. That 'new balance of power' when referred to by Woodrow Wilson, Churchill and George HW Bush, was decidedly weighted towards the USA and its allies. Bush used the term along with Gorbachev to describe a post Cold War era and a spirit of co-operation between the 'Great Powers'. But in 1990, when Bush and Gorbachev made their speech, Russia was no longer a 'great power', and Bush felt comfortable qualifying the idea of 'co-operation' by saying "there is no substitute for American leadership". The post WW2 and post Cold War New World Order was in reality a euphemism for the 'New American Century' where America would reign supreme and unchallenged. As we sit here in the year 2017 and look at the world around us, we see that America's vision for a NWO and New American Century is in shambles, with the architects of the American Empire reduced to setting fire (literally and figuratively) to countries in a futile attempt to stave off the moment of its complete collapse. This week on BTH we'll be taking a look at the real new world order that is taking shape and how it radically diverges from the supposedly well laid plans of the Western political elite. We'll also be gazing into our crystal balls to predict what moves on the grand chessboard can be expected as the anglo-American empire builders grow increasingly desperate. 6-8pm CET (4-6pm UTC / 12-2pm EST), only on SOTT!

Trump Declares War on Colin Kaepernick, NFL and NBA Athletes

With our neighbors to the south, Mexico, recovering after getting hit with a series of earthquakes, and Puerto Rico still dealing with the effects of Hurricane Maria, Donald Trump spoke to the crowd at a campaign rally for Big Luther Strange in Huntsville, Alabama on Friday about offering a helping hand to those in need.

Man, who are we kidding? Instead, Trump attacked the NFL players who protest racism and police violence by not standing during the national anthem.

"Phoenix Will Be Almost Unlivable By 2050 Thanks To Climate Change" "IndyWatch Feed World"

"Phoenix Will Be Almost Unlivable By 
2050 Thanks To Climate Change"
by Women System 

"Sorry to put such a fine point on this, but even without climate change, Phoenix, Arizona, is already pretty uninhabitable. Don't get me wrong, I spend a fair amount of time there, and I love it- particularly in the fall and winter- but without air-conditioning and refrigeration, it would be unlivable as is. Even with those modern conveniences, the hottest months take their toll on my feeble Southern Californian body and brain. The historical average number of days per year in Phoenix that hit 100 degrees is a mind-bending 92. But that number is rapidly rising as climate change bears down on America's fifth-largest city.

"It's currently the fastest warming big city in the US," meteorologist and former Arizonan Eric Holthaus told me in an email. A study from Climate Central last year projects that Phoenix's summer weather will be on average three to five degrees hotter by 2050. Meanwhile, that average number of 100-degree days will have skyrocketed by almost 40, to 132, according to another 2016 Climate Central study. (For reference, over a comparable period, New York City is expected to go from two to 15 100-degree days.)

Nightmare scenario in the making: U.S. has still not given up in Eastern Syria - and Russia is not backing down "IndyWatch Feed World"

The impending collapse of ISIS has touched off a race for territory in the oil-rich eastern part of Syria pitting US-backed forces against the Russian-led coalition of Syria, Iran and Hezbollah. This is the nightmare scenario that everyone wanted to avoid. Washington and Moscow's armies are now converging on the same area at the same time greatly increasing the probability of a conflagration between the two nuclear-armed superpowers. The only way a clash can be avoided is if one party backs down, which seems increasingly unlikely. The situation can be easily explained. The vast swath of territory captured by ISIS is steadily shrinking due to the dogged perseverance of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) which has liberated most of the countryside west of the Euphrates River including the former ISIS stronghold at Deir Ezzor, a critical garrison at the center of the fighting. ISIS is also getting pressure from the north where the US-backed SDF is pounding their capital at Raqqa while deploying troops and tanks southward to the oil fields in Deir Ezzor province. Washington has made it clear that it wants its proxy-army to control the area east of the Euphrates establishing a soft partition between east and west. The US also wants to control Deir Ezzor's vast oil resources in order to provide a reliable revenue stream for the emergent Kurdish statelet.

Number ONE Enemy of the State "IndyWatch Feed World"

Number ONE Enemy of the State | enemy_of_the_state_logo1 | Government Special Interests

There is immense confusion about the nature of the State. There is even more bewilderment about what constitutes a patriot. Any discussion in the civic realm begins with a cultural viewpoint. An attitude toward the proper role of the individuals relationship with government based upon ones value system and interpretation of civil order is natural. One mans patriot is another mans traitor. Where do you stand on the sentiments behind the penning of the below ideas? Quiz yourself and see if you can figure out the name of the author.

The quotes assembled in this essay illustrate that government officials and agencies would put the critic on a terrorist watch list. Read each and compare if the thought behind the passage agrees with your value system or if the attitude is too extreme for mainstream politics in todays America. If left up to the national security apparatus, the author would be on a wanted poster, labeled as the Number One Enemy of the State.

Imagine the governments response for advocating a society that promotes Liberty. Tolerating grievous radical expressions like these examples is dangerous. Consider the outlooks.

I would rather be exposed to the inconveniences attending too much liberty than to those attending too small a degree of it.

What country can preserve its liberties if its rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance?

It is better to tolerate that rare instance of a parents refusing to let his child be educated, than to shock the common feelings by a forcible transportation and education of the infant against the will of his father.

It is strangely absurd to suppose that a million of human beings, collected together, are not under the sa...

Investor lawsuit forces Facebook to cancel ownership changes allowing Zuckerberg to retain voting control of company - despite owning minimal shares "IndyWatch Feed World"

Under investor pressure, Facebook is squashing a proposed ownership structure that would allow CEO Mark Zuckerberg to retain voting control of the company - even as he sold millions of his shares of company stock. Last year, some shareholders filed a class action lawsuit to block Facebook from issuing reclassified C shares, which would allow Zuckerberg to maintain voting control of the company even as he sold off most of his shares to support philanthropic causes. The proposed C shares would be publicly listed but come with no voting rights. Investors argued that the proposed ownership structure could cause them to lose billions of dollars of value when the shares traded. "Facebook's board determined that withdrawing the reclassification was in the best interests of Facebook and its shareholders," a spokesperson told CNBC via email. Facebook drops plans for new class of shares from CNBC.

Earlier on Saturday, Trump doubled down on his criticism of NFL players who refuse to stand during the national anthem, despite fierce backlash from the league and players.

If a player wants the privilege of making millions of dollars in the NFL, or other leagues, he or she should not be allowed to disrespect our Great American Flag (or Country) and should stand for the national anthem, he said on Twitter Saturday afternoon.

If not, YOURE FIRED. Find something else to do, he continued.

For substances

They sold us their goods
For silver we stole
We blasted their ports
Filled their cities with holes

To tell them more lies

One was an Air Force lieutenant who came out of his downtown apartment to witness the commotion in his neighborhood. Another was a Chicago-based photojournalist for Getty Images assigned to cover the latest bout of unrest in St. Louis. And still another was a St. Louis police officer working undercover at the protest. They were among more than 120 people forcibly arrested downtown on Sunday by St. Louis police cracking down on protests. The arrests came at least two hours after vandals had broken some windows and flower pots a few blocks away. The police were congratulated by their acting police chief, who said they "owned tonight," and got praise from Gov. Eric Greitens for their tactics. But as more details emerged about heavy-handed police tactics, criticism mounted. A lawyer for the Post-Dispatch condemned the "inappropriate and disturbing" arrest of one of its journalists.

Trump administration to obscure arms exports after Pentagon 'pipeline' to Syria exposed "IndyWatch Feed World"

The day after US President Trump's barnstorming speech to the UN General Assembly decrying 'the scourge' of rogue states and terrorism, it was reported that his administration is set to greatly loosen American arms exports. The trade in question is in the private sector of so-called "non-military weapons". There seems little doubt that unleashing an already massive American export trade in private weapons will further fuel "the scourge" of conflicts and terrorism around the world. What is also telling is the timing of the move by the Trump administration. The move to boost exports of private American gun makers also follows an investigative report revealing a $2.2 billion arms pipeline run by the Pentagon and the CIA into Syria. Citing incriminating procurement papers, the explosive report shows how American government agencies are funneling assault rifles and rocket launchers, among other munitions, from Central and Eastern Europe into Syria to arm anti-government militant groups. What the latest move by the Trump administration will do is obscure the potential paper trail of the weapons trade. In effect, the proposed change in US export regulations amounts to privatizing arms dealing.

Chevron resumes drilling in Kurdistan Region "IndyWatch Feed World"

(KurdPress)  U.S. firm Chevron drilled its first exploration well this month in Iraqi Kurdistan after a two-year break, industry sources said.

Chevron, the second largest U.S. oil and gas company, drilled the well in Sarta block, north of the regional capital Erbil, the first such well since the second half of 2015, two industry sources told Reuters.

Chevron continues its exploration activities in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq, a Chevron spokeswoman said, without elaborating.

Chevron holds an 80 percent interest in the Sarta and Qara Dagh blocks, which cover a combined area of 279,000 acres (1,129 sq km), according to its 2016 annual report. It does not currently have any production from Iraqi Kurdistan.

Chevron started drilling its previous exploration in Sarta in late 2015 and completed it in early 2016.

It relinquished its Rovi block at the end of 2015.

The California-based firms operations in the region temporarily ground to a halt in 2014 after a conflict between Kurdish forces and Islamic State. Activity again came to a halt after the first Sarta well was drilled.

Innocent man gets $1.6M settlement after surveillance video proved cops beat and framed him "IndyWatch Feed World"

An innocent man has received over $1.6 million from a civil lawsuit because he was beaten and framed by cops for being 100 percent compliant and never committing a crime. "Our client feels vindicated," said attorney Karl Seelbach, of Doyle & Seelbach PLLC. "If there's one thing about Larry Faulkenberry, is his story is consistent from day one." As KXAN reports: A federal jury awarded a Central Texas man more than $1.3 million in response to a civil lawsuit against Caldwell County deputies who arrested him on charges that were never prosecuted by the district attorney's office. Lawrence Faulkenberry was also awarded $350,000 in punitive damages related to a deputy who initiated a leg sweep, his attorney said.

Devastating toll of junk food: Big food corporations like Nestle are aggressively making people fatter across the globe "IndyWatch Feed World"

Developing countries are a hot market for Big Food's high-calorie junk food. There are now more than 700 million obese people worldwide, 108 million of them children, reported the New York Times recently. In Brazil, food giant Nestle sends vendors door to door hawking its high-calorie junk food and giving customers a full month to pay for their purchases. Such a deal. Nestle calls the junk food hawkers, who are themselves obese, "micro-entrepreneurs." Right. Big Food is increasing targeting poor countries as "emerging markets" to please shareholders, supplanting their indigenous diets with fast food, packaged goods and soft drinks. In addition to creating obesity, diabetes, heart disease and chronic illnesses, the junk food supplants subsistence agriculture crops with sugar cane and GMO corn and soybeans. Even philanthropic groups like the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation have drunk Big Food's Kool-Aid about GMOs "feeding the world." Actually, GMOs drench the fields of poor communities with toxic pesticides and pollute their waters.

Queensland, Australia residents warned after death of 100 yo crocodile sparks fears of power struggle among aggressive males "IndyWatch Feed World"

The death of a huge crocodile whose body was found in a river in Queensland, Australia, has sparked fears of a fight for dominance among the young, aggressive males living in the area. The 5.2 meter-long (17ft) male, which had been shot in the head, was discovered by a member of the public, who had spotted its body floating in the Fitzroy River. Local farmer John Leaver told the Australian Associated Press it had been around 20 to 30 years since such a large crocodile had been found in Queensland. "There may have been some others shot in the wild that we don't know about, but from my recollection, over the past three decades this would be the largest," he said, adding the largest he had ever caught measured 4.95 meters (16.2ft). Leaver said that from the damage done to the crocodile's skull, the bullet probably came from a fairly large calibre rifle. "I would say that someone felt very threatened," he said.

Massive backlash begins over bombshell decision to strip Uber of London business license - Update "IndyWatch Feed World"

40,000 drivers out of work as 400,000 sign protest petition A massive backlash has started after Uber was today stripped of its licence to operate in London with hundreds of thousands of passengers signing a petition to keep the app running. Transport for London (TfL) sensationally announced the firm would be barred from working in the city from next month due to its failure to report crimes carried out by its drivers. The Silicon Valley firm - which boasts more than 5 billion passengers in over 630 cities worldwide - fears the decision by regulators in London may now encourage authorities in other countries to launch their own crackdowns. Passengers are outraged by the bombshell announcement, which they say will leave them unable to afford late-night lifts home and will put thousands of drivers out of work. Ahead of a planned appeal, which will see the dispute dragged into court, at least 400,000 Londoners have signed a petition calling for the decision to be reversed. But critics of Uber insist it has failed to properly vet its drivers and is an example of the so-called 'gig economy' that gives workers no employment rights.

Treatment of epilepsy: Ketogenic diet often better than drugs "IndyWatch Feed World"

This year marks the 20th anniversary of First Do No Harm, a film directed by American movie director and writer Jim Abrahams. Based on real-life events, the film relates the successful treatment of one boy's severe case of epilepsy using a ketogenic diet. Prior to the fictionalized family's discovery of the diet, their youngest son, Robbie, was given many pharmaceutical medications, some of which caused constipation, fevers, rashes and other harmful side effects, including at least one near-death episode. Aspects of the storyline mirror Abrahams' own experience with his infant son Charlie, who makes a brief cameo appearance in the film as one of Robbie's playmates in the hospital. Charlie was diagnosed with epilepsy when he was just 11 months old. Similar to the mother in the movie, played by Meryl Streep, after Abrahams watched his son suffer through multiple daily seizures, the accompanying accidents and injuries, and a slew of pharmaceutical drugs, he became aware of the ketogenic diet through personal research.

On Saturday, the chief of the Catalan police, Jose Maria Romero de Tejada, was informed that both he and his officers have to answer to the Civil Guard and Interior Ministry commander Colonel Diego Perez de los Cobos. The Catalan police, Madrid claims, have not been complying with their instructions to clear protesters away from government buildings. Although de Tejada remains formally in charge, he must now take orders from Colonel Cobos, who has already deployed additional National Police and Civil Guard forces into the autonomous region.

U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren was recently confronted with a simple question, and her reaction speaks volumes. WRKO radio host Jeff Kuhner caught up with Warren the other day and recorded his brief encounter, during which he asked the Massachusetts senator an easy question. "You often say, and I agree with you, that the 99 percent are getting shafted by the 1 percent," Kuhner told Warren as she shook her head in agreement. "Let me ask you this. A lot of people, especially my listeners, say you live in Cambridge. You have a $2 million mansion, plus you're a multi-millionaire yourself. So how can you rail against the 1 percent, when you are and live like the 1 percent?" The senator launched into a oral history of her family and the "opportunities" that landed her in the upper-upper class. "I wasn't born in Cambridge," Warren said, "I was born into a family where my daddy worked one job after another and ended up as a janitor." Her mother worked for minimum wage, and her brothers were in the military, and she wanted to be a school teacher and didn't even have money to pay for the college application, she said. Eventually she graduated from a "commuter college that cost $50 a semester" to become a special needs teacher. After that, she was a mom and attended a state law school, Warren said, avoiding Kuhner's original question. "But you are part of the 1 percent?" the radio host persisted. "You are a multi-millionare and have a mansion in Cambridge, do you not? It's worth north of $2 million."

All You Need to Know About Cleansing With Cayenne Pepper "IndyWatch Feed World"

All You Need to Know About Cleansing With Cayenne Pepper | cayenne-pepper1 | Natural Medicine Special Interests

Cayenne peppers have long been held in high regard for their powerful health-boosting properties. Popular cleanses, like the Master Cleanse, use cayenne because of naturally occurring compounds, like capsaicin, which help cleanse and detox the body at a cellular level. These cleansing effects can have a significant impact on your entire body, promoting a healthy heart, weight, and gut. Sustaining overall health is where the actual cleansing benefits of cayenne lie, helping you live healthy, longer! Here are the top benefits of cayenne.

Cayenne Pepper Cleanses the Body

Cayenne is well-known for its pain-relieving, weight loss, and metabolism-boosting properties, but its also a detoxifying spice that works on many different organs and tissues. It owes its detoxifying health benefits to the actions of capsaicin, the natural compound that gives chili peppers their stinging bite.

Enhances Waste Removal From Cells

Capsaicin triggers the production of a powerful vasodilator called nitric oxide.[1] This compound causes your arteries to relax, which encourages normal blood pressure and improves circulation, especially to tissues that are woven through with delicate capillaries.[2] These tiny blood vessels sometimes become clogged with white blood cells and clumps of blood platelets, but loosening their walls gives them the flexibility they need to keep your blood flowing.[3] Adequate blood flow allows your cells to properly dispose of waste and take in fresh...

Mush for brains: Poroshenko speaks at West Point, says American weapons will assist Ukraine in 'freeing' Donbass, help save lives "IndyWatch Feed World"

American weapons will help Ukraine recapture the Donbass. Such a statement was made by President Petro Poroshenko during a speech at the US Military Academy "West Point" on Monday in New York. Comment: That sniveling psychopath Poroshenko was even invited to speak at West Point does not bode well for any kind of peaceful resolution between Kiev and the besieged Donbass region of the Ukraine. It means that (along with mad dog Mattis's promise of delivering more weapons to the Poroshenko regime) that the US is indoctrinating its military to side with Kiev's belligerent aggressors for the longer-term. "First of all, US weapons can help us free the Donbass and return Ukrainian territories" - said the head of the Ukrainian state. Poroshenko expressed regret that the issue of providing Ukraine with lethal weapons still remains controversial and unresolved. Also, the president of Ukraine refuted the statements that American weapons can not help resolve the situation in Ukraine. Comment: More weapons means more fighting and more death - probably on Kiev's side. What ever happened to the Minsk 2 agreements you signed to Poroshenko?! Oh yeah, they're meaningless to you.

Dr. Chris Exley: Aluminum toxicity expert "IndyWatch Feed World"

Below is a great lecture given by Dr. Chris Exley, who is one of the worlds' leading experts in the subject of aluminum toxicity, and, as he points out in his lecture (2nd video below), which was spoken at a vaccine safety conference, aluminum has absolutely no place in Earth's biota. Sure, a portion of the Earth's crust is made from it, but it does a great job of keeping it (aluminum) completely separate from living things, it cannot penetrate up to where life thrives, until we started using it. Aluminum has no place in the exterior world, biochemically speaking. Since this lecture was given, multiple studies have surfaced showing that aluminum, from vaccines in particular, does not come into the same methods of excretion as it does when we ingest it from other sources. Injectable aluminum is different because it's used as an adjuvant, which means "helper" and without it the vaccines are pretty much useless. Injectable aluminum is meant to stick around, and eventually it finds its way to the brain.

Health problems confirmed with Corexit oil dispersant chemical "IndyWatch Feed World"

Back on April 20, 2010, a major environmental catastrophe occurred in the Gulf of Mexico when the Deepwater Horizon oil drilling rig exploded and 4.9 million barrels of crude spilled into the Gulf waters creating a problem that was not 'fixed' until July 10, 2010 when the rig finally was able to be capped. One of the approved emergency methods to control the oil spill was the use of Corexit, a chemical dispersant sprayed from aircraft. According to a report about the health issues related to that chemical "Respiratory, Dermal, and Eye Irritation Symptoms Associated with Corexit EC9527A/EC9500A following the Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill: Findings from the GuLF STUDY," we learn in the Introduction, As part of the oil spill response and cleanup (OSRC), approximately 1.8 million gallons (6.8 million liters) of oil dispersant was applied both to the sea surface [1.07 million gallons (4.05 million liters)] and directly into the stream of oil leaving the wellhead 5,000 feet (1.5 km) underwater [0.77 million gallons (2.9 million liters)] (United States Coast Guard 2011).

Syrian Deputy PM & Foreign Minister to UN: We cannot understand international silence on US crimes "IndyWatch Feed World"

"The so-called International Coalition led by the US, which was created three years ago to allegedly fight terrorists groups such as ISIL, has killed much more innocent Syrians, mostly women and children, than terrorists and has destroyed vital infrastructure that the Syrians have worked for years to build. It has also used phosphorus bombs and other internationally-prohibited weapons before the eyes of the whole world. We cannot understand the silence of the international community in the face of these crimes. The international community has not condemned or sought to stop these crimes, even though the Syrian government has made a number of appeals to the Security Council to assume its main responsibility of maintaining international peace and security. The Syrian government has urged the Council to implement its own resolutions on counter-terrorism, particular resolution 2253, and prevent the Coalition from committing more crimes against the citizens of my country."

New York, SANA Deputy Prime Minister, Foreign and Expatriates Minister Walid al-Moallem delivered a speech at the 72nd session of the UN General Assembly, in which he affirmed that Syria is marching steadily towards the goal of rooting out terrorism, and that any solution in Syria must respect Syrias non-negotiable principles, which include the territorial unity of Syria and its people, and the rejection of any external interference.

Western Propaganda in Southeast Asia: A True Success Story "IndyWatch Feed World"

It is all done in a fully barefaced manner. Those who are not part of this world could never even dream about such a perfect design.

You come to your club, in my case to The Foreign Correspondent Club of Thailand (FCCT), and immediately the long arm of indoctrination begins stretching towards you.

US filmmakers of Neighbour at FCCT Bangkok

You place yourself on a comfortable couch, and soon after get fully serviced. You get instructed, told what to think and how to formulate or modify your ideas.

You are periodically shown movies about corruption and immorality in China. You get encouraged to participate in some public discussions that are, among other things, trashing the anti-Western president of the Philippines.

Although lately also the Middle East, and particularly Syria, are brought into the spotlight.

Of course, almost all that is on offer in such places like FCCT is the Western view, or concretely a set of Western views raging from conservative to liberal. The club is located in Asia, in the heart of Southeast Asia, but very few Asians are invited to speak here, except the few Thais who are well versed in the Western way of thinking. Or Western agents like the Dalai Lama, of course such individuals can come anytime they want! Forget about hearing from the other side youd never stumble here over speakers such as Communist thinkers or writers from Mainland China, or pro-Duterte academics or activists from the Philippines.

Most of the Thais who get spotted at the FCCT are actually those who provide support services for the Western gurus of mainstream media: interpreters, fixers, waiters and as well as some administrative support staff.

This is not a place for Asians to lecture Westerners about Asia; this is where Westerners tell Asians how to think in general, and what to think about their own countries in particular.

On the same floor as the FCCT, right down the narrow carpeted corridor, there are the offices of the BBC, the NBC and several other mainstream Western media outlets. The Penthouse of the Maneeya Center Building in Bangkok is actually a self-sufficient propaganda complex.

Record-high health insurance premiums hit New Mexico "IndyWatch Feed World"

Health insurers in New Mexico are increasing premiums at the highest rate seen in the four-year history of the state's exchanges, the Albuquerque Journal reported. Insurers will increase premiums next year from a range of 36 to 41 percent for midlevel insurance plans. For all plans, premiums are expected to rise a range of 17 to 49 percent. Sixty percent of consumers in New Mexico will qualify for subsidies to lower the cost of the increasing premium. "I feel sorry for the other 40 percent though," said John Franchini, the state's insurance superintendent. "Forty percent have to pay the full brunt of the rate increases." Franchini says that instability of the exchanges is the main reason insurers want premium rate increases. By raising premiums, insurers can be more confident about participating in Obamacare if the extra cash can insulate them from major financial losses.

Autistic behaviors seen as reasonable suspicion for arrest: Cop who assaulted autistic boy cleared of wrongdoing "IndyWatch Feed World"

Following a national outcry surrounding the violent takedown of an autistic boy by Officer David Grossman, the Buckeye Police Department is in damage control mode. In a press conference, BPD spokesperson Tamela Skaggs addressed reporters in an effort to explain to the public why Grossman confronted Connor Leibel, a 14-year-old autistic boy. Skaggs described Grossman as a "drug recognition expert" with the department's patrol division. As The Free Thought Project has reported, officers can attend a weekend training seminar where they learn how to escalate traffic stops under suspicion of drug use and charge more motorists with "driving under the influence of drugs," even though many who are charged had no drugs in their system at all. Reporters immediately questioned how a so-called "drug recognition expert" could not immediately recognize that Leibel was first, a juvenile, and second, a person with special needs-instead of someone who was high on drugs as Grossman admitted he believed Leibel to be. Skaggs said she could not begin to speculate or "get into his [Grossman's] mind," but said Leibel's behavior was suspicious enough to make contact with him, apprehend him when he pulled away, and detain him. However, Skaggs stopped short of saying Grossman took Leibel violently to the ground. Instead, she said the two both fell to the ground together. Leibel's family maintains their son was injured in the process - having the photos to prove it - and they are demanding an apology from Grossman, for the officer to undergo community service within the Autism community, and additional training for the entire department.

United States bombs killing Yemeni children "IndyWatch Feed World"

This video from the USA says about itself:

Amnesty International Reveals the Bomb That Killed 16 Civilians in Yemen Was Made in the U.S.A.

22 September 2017

A major new investigation by Amnesty International reveals a bomb that killed 16 civilians in Yemens capital last month was made in the U.S.A. Among the survivors was 5-year-old Buthaina, whose photograph went viral in the aftermath of the strike. She lost her entire family in the strike.

Amnesty Internationals arms expert analyzed remnants of the weapon and found clear markings that matched U.S.-made components used in laser-guided, air-dropped bombs. Coalition airstrikes continue to be the leading cause of child casualties, as well as overall civilian casualties. The latest finding by Amnesty comes as some European Union countries recently tabled a motion at the U.N. Human Rights Council calling for an independent inquiry into human rights abuses committed by all sides in the conflict. The U.N. high commissioner for human rights has called the humanitarian crisis in Yemen an entirely man-made catastrophe. We speak with...

Trudeau Government seeking to oust Venezuelas President Nicolas Maduro "IndyWatch Feed World"

Alongside Washington and Venezuelas elite, the Trudeau government is seeking to oust President Nicols Maduro. While Ottawas campaign has recently grown, official Canada has long opposed the pro-poor, pro-working class Bolivarian Revolution, which has won 19 of 21 elections since 1998.

Following a similar move by the Trump Administration, Global Affairs Canada sanctioned 40 Venezuelans on Friday. In a move that probably violates the UN charter, the elected president, vice president and 38 other officials had their assets in Canada frozen and Canadians are barred from having financial relations with these individuals.

In recent months foreign minister Chrystia Freeland has repeatedly criticized Maduros government. She accused Caracas of dictatorial intentions, imprisoning political opponents and robbing the Venezuelan people of their fundamental democratic rights. Since taking office the Liberals have supported efforts to condemn the Maduro government at the Organization of American States (OAS) and promoted an international mediation designed to weaken Venezuelas leftist government (all the while staying mum about Brazils imposed president who has a 5% approval rating and far worse human rights violations in Mexico).

Beyond these public interventions designed to stoke internal unrest, Ottawa has directly aided an often-unsavoury Venezuelan opposition. A specialist in social media and political transition, outgoing Canadian ambassador Ben Rowswell told the Ottawa Citizen in August: We established quite a significant internet presence inside Venezuela, so that we could then engage tens of thousands of Venezuelan citizens in a conversation on human rights. We became one of the most vocal embassies in speaking out on human rights issues and encouraging Venezuelans to speak out. (Can you imagine the hue and cry if a Russian ambassador said something similar about Canada?) Rowswell added that Canada would continue to support the domestic opposi...

Rubens painting rediscovered after centuries "IndyWatch Feed World"

The newly rediscovered portrait of the Duke of Buckingham by Rubens dates from around 1625

From the BBC in Britain today:

Rubens Duke of Buckingham found after 400 years

A lost portrait by Flemish artist Peter Paul Rubens has been rediscovered after almost 400 years.

The 17th century Flemish artists head study of the Duke of Buckingham was identified by Dr Bendor Grosvenor from BBC Fours Britains Lost Masterpieces.

It was in Glasgow Museums collection and on public display at the citys Pollok House stately home.

But overpainting and centuries of dirt meant it was thought to be a later copy by another artist.

The restored portrait of George Villiers, the 1st Duke of Buckingham, was authenticated as a Rubens by Ben van Beneden, director of the Rubenshuis in Antwerp.

He said it was a rare addition to Rubenss portrait oeuvre, showing how he approached the genre.

Dr Grosvenor said: The chance to discover a portrait of such a pivotal figure in British history by one of the greatest artists who ever lived has been thrillingly exciting.

The portrait of the duke in a doublet with an elaborate lace collar and a sash dates from around 1625.

He was a controversial figure in the Jacobean era who rose from minor nobility to become one of the favourites of James I, who was...

"Three Nights in Philly" "IndyWatch Feed World"

"Three Nights in Philly"
By Joe Bageant

"A fellow expatriate told me recently when I left Belize, Central America, which I now consider my home: "America is a sticky place, Joe, hard to get out of again, even from a short visit. The everyday money and business stuff alone will trap you like flypaper." And that keeps ringing in my head during this current return to sell my house and fulfill my promotional obligations for the book I just published here. Which could take months.

But it's sticky in other ways too, some of them rooted in the hearts of its working class people. Last week I found myself in Philadelphia, a working class town if ever there was one. In this sprawl-and-mall age, it's surprising for non-metro people like me to run into whole neighborhoods of folks who are not full of suburban self-important horseshit and three-car garages, and when you do they always seem to be immigrant or working class neighborhoods. But then, maybe I was just around too many bland American "sluburbs" for too long before I skipped the country.

Old men see a lot of phantoms when they revisit the scenes of their youth. Philly is like that for me. I was stationed at the now-defunct South Philly Naval Base in 1965. And it was in roaming that city during off-duty hours that city I experienced my first intellectual awakening, or at least the first one that had other human participants. I hung out at places like the Artist's Hut or the Guilded Cage off Rittenhouse Square, learned of the folk music and peace protest movements and heard poetry read live by real poets for the first time.

A group of Lebanese Montrealers who love to play hockey have decided to get organized and form Lebanons first hockey team. Theres still no formal structure but they have already played a couple of exhibition games against Team Haiti, Egypt, Morocco & Algeria and have won on every occasion.

Theyre doing it out of love for the sport and their country Lebanon but theyre also aiming big and want to get accepted into the International Ice Hockey Federation. Unfortunately, in order to do so, they will need the support of the Lebanese authorities and proof that the country has at least one ice hockey rink and a league with teams, which is not gonna happen anytime soon.

Lebanons hockey team has players coming in from Toronto, Ottawa, Michigan, Calgary and France. Thats a pretty awesome initiative. I wish them the best of luck and I hope they will be able to take things to the next level.

An AP report described as a rare if not unprecedented move, a purported statement1 by Kim Jong-un, the chairman of the State Affairs Commission of the Democratic Republic of Korea, in response to United States president Donald Trumps bullying speech to the United Nations earlier this week. The response was relayed by DPRKs state news agency KCNA.

Of Trumps speech, Kim said,

[F]ar from making remarks of any persuasive power that can be viewed to be helpful to defusing tension, he made unprecedented rude nonsense one has never heard from any of his predecessors.

Kim smartly identified defusing tension as a goal and criticized Trumps unprecedented rude nonsense. He also took umbrage at Trumps insulting his person and his country in front of the eyes of the world.

Kim offered,

Id like to advise Trump to exercise prudence in selecting words.

Yet Kim described Trump as a political layman, political heretic, a rogue and a gangster fond of playing with fire, and a mentally deranged US dotard. Was this exercising prudence in selecting words? Was it helpful in defusing tension?

Do such remarks have any persuasive power that can be viewed to be helpful to defusing tension?

In closing, Kim said,

As a man representing the DPRK and on behalf of the dignity and honor of my state and people and on my own, I will make the man holding the prerogative of the supreme command in the U.S. pay dearly for his speech calling for totally destroying the DPRK.

Theresa May Florence speech is being seen by many as a betrayal of BREXIT.

Prime Minister May said that the temporary transitional arrangements will not go on for everand will end around two years after Britain leaves the European Union (EU) in 2019. She made it clear that [d]uring the implementation period, people will continue to be able to come and live and work in the UK. She did also say that [t]here will be a registration system, an essential preparation for the new regime.

Dragging this on has many concerned. While she says businesses should have the time to plan, quite honestly, two years is plenty of time. The way the markets are looking going forward, Britain may find itself engulfed in the European banking crisis even before 2019.

This is very drastic. Normally, someone who pays a bill in installments would pay the VAT on that amount that they pay. Under this new scheme, the company must pay the full VAT tax before they get the money. Even a sports contract would require paying the VAT on the entire contract which may be for 5 years up-front.

Recent Study Proves That Men Never Fully Recover from Breakups "IndyWatch Feed World"

Breakups suck no matter what, and while we ladies think we have it rough some men have it rough as well. With that being said, this is not universal for everyone, some men and women just do not care.

We often feel as if the man with whom we had a relationship is out having a good time while we are sitting at home upset dealing with the pain of the breakup. However, this isnt because he hasnt been affected, it is because men hurt differently. According to a recent study, men dont tend to properly get over their past significant relationships.

In this study, the emotional state of about 2,000 individuals who had divorced was assessed and then reassessed about seven years later. The women in the study showed strong indications of having become more extroverted in the years following their divorces while the men became more emotionally unstable. Sure, the breakup will hit the woman harder in the beginning, but they are able to get over things much easier than men in the long run.

Another study actually backs this up, researchers from Binghamton University assessed participants from 96 countries (5,705 people0 and found that men were suffering from the breakup far longer than women were. For a man, the sting of a breakup doesnt hit right away like it does for a woman. The more time that passes the more that loss will truly sink in for the man.

Craig Morriss researcher from the second study listed says:

The man will likely feel the loss deeply and for a very long period of time as it sinks in that he must start competing all over again to replace what he has lost or worse still, come to the realization that the loss is irreplaceable.

When dealing with a breakup know that it is hard for everyone, not just one side. Dont assume someone isnt hurting just because you cannot see their pain.

To read more about this I suggest reading this article by Elizabeth Aura McClintock Ph.D for Psychology Today.

Compared to the Benefits of Peace, Spending Money on War Is Insane "IndyWatch Feed World"

While war is perceived by many as an inherent institution of the nation state, few people fail to recognize and regret the horror, death, destruction, suffering, and misery it inflicts. Another consequence of war, however, is less often considered, though it is in the long run even more damaging to the cause of human well-being. That is the waste of resources in preparing for, and waging, war that could otherwise be used to help meet the physical, economic, social, and cultural needs of ordinary people.

According to a reliable online information source, the U.S. accounted for 37 percent, or about $592 billion, of the more than $1.6 trillion in world military spending in 2015. That outlay amounts to roughly the size of the next seven largest military budgets combined. (On September 11, 2017, a new defense spending authorization bill calling for a budget of $692 billion in fiscal year 2018 was introduced into the U.S. Senate.) Moreover, it has been estimated that overall annual U.S. military spending is actually about $1 trillion, when funding is counted not only for the Pentagon but for Homeland Security and other related government departments and agencies. In addition, the U.S. has spent approximately $2 trillion in direct costs for the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. That figure is itself raised to an estimated $6 trillion when indirect expenditures are addedsuch as future care of veterans and lost domestic investment opportunities.

If those dollars were made available instead for investments to meet the direct needs of people, a substantial portion could be used in our own country to help adequately fund two important projects: the long-neglected rebuilding of our crumbling physical infrastructure, and systematic progress toward a more cost-effective and environmentally-healthy green economy. Besides making life better for everyone, both investments would generate millions of new, good-paying jobs. Other diverted defense dollars could be used to fund projects abroad that help meet the basic needs of underdeveloped countriessuch as food, clean water, medicine, agriculture, sustainable energy, and education. Those initiatives could greatly enhance the American image with the people of those countries, and, by providing young males a basis of hope for the future, reduce the allure of political extremism and help ease the threats to our own country posed by international terrorism.

35 of the Most Powerful Photos of All Time "IndyWatch Feed World"

They say a picture is worth a thousand words, and not many people will disagree with that. We are enormously privileged that photos are so accessible to us these days, because theres just no better way to save a memory!

Pictures are one of my favorite things to share with people. I love taking photos to capture some of the best memories Ive made in my lifetime. We have access to pictures anywhere we are these days. Not only that, but our smartphones that we have with us all the time have cameras that are technologically equivalent to a professional grade DSLR camera! We have the privilege of seeing our memories at any given moment and place and in high definition too! And for that, we are lucky, however, photos are specifically great for one other thing.

Photos are an excellent way to raise awareness and really capture the feeling of a certain moment. Many different research foundations and global awareness groups wouldnt be able to spread the word of how serious some things are without a picture. I mean, you just dont imagine the intensity of third world countries but a photo can really give you a visual. In fact, all of the photos below can. These photos are enormously powerful and honestly, everyone in the western society needs to see them. We have to stop looking at the world through rose shaded glasses and do our part.

Harvard Study Reveals That Tibetan Monks Can Control Body Temperature Using Only Their Minds "IndyWatch Feed World"

If you have been following us for a while, you have probably read our article about the superhuman abilities that some monks possess. According to a study performed by Harvard, some monks have the ability to control body temperature using only their minds.

We too often get caught up in the modern day world, and we forget about all of the things happening in other parts of the world. For example, while we are tweeting away, Tibetan monks are raising their own core body temperatures with their minds!

Almost every single one of us are nose deep in social media, so much to the point where we ignore the entire rest of the world. All we care about these days is how many likes and followers we get when in other parts of the world monks are literally controlling their body temperature with their minds! I know, amazing right? But how? Well, Harvard explains it for us.

What is Tum-Mo? 

One Monastery in Northern India Tibetan Monks are testing their knowledge of a practice known as Tum-Mo. Its a process that allows the body to enter a deep state of relaxed meditation. Some even practice it while wrapped in sheets soaked in cold water. If the average joe was to try this and they were unable to regulate their body temperature, they could easily enter a state of hypothermia and that can cause death. Monks who practice this have done so for an extensive amount of time and they are able to regulate their body temperature with their minds. They are able to actually generate heat from their bodies.

Why they do it, and why meditation is important. 

There are massive amounts of benefits to be obtained from meditation. Meditation has been clinically proven to reduce stress, blood pressure, anxiety, and it has even been shown to treat diabetes! Tum-Mo dramatically escalates the benefits because it is such a deep state of meditation. Peoples metabolism and breathing can even be slowed using meditation. While there arent a lot of groups and...

Why Turmeric Needs To Be A Daily Habit For Anyone Seeking Good Health "IndyWatch Feed World"

There are many important factors that help determine our quality of life. Proper nutrition, a healthy mindset, comforting relationships, and clean air are just some of the most important components to improve in order to lead a healthy and abundant life.

One of the easiest and most beneficial aspect of our lives we have a degree of control over is nutrition.

It is also one of the most important as it provides the fuel and energy we need to get through our day and also helps us recover from any infectious assaults that inevitably will be a part of our experience.

Unfortunately, most of us do not see these assaults on our body coming. Even though there is a general awareness that the food supply is tainted and diluted, that our public water systems are contaminated, and our air is polluted, we still unknowingly ingest toxins on a daily basis that challenge our immune system.

Almost all 18,000 police departments across the U.S. issue officers tasers, or stun guns, which are meant to be a non-lethal weapon to help police subdue suspects. But tasers have proved controversial partly because, when misused, they can result in death. In a five-part series of original reporting, digging through court documents, police reports and public records, Reuters has documented more than 1,000 incidents since the year 2000 when people died after police fired tasers at them.

The diplomatic and economic noose is tightening around Iraqi Kurdistan one day ahead of its historic independence referendum. On Sunday, the Iranian government announced closure of its airspace to northern Iraq's Sulaimani and Erbil Airports, at the request of Iraqi authorities.

The crazy imbalance of Russia-gate: Ignoring Israel's actual power to influence US elections "IndyWatch Feed World"

If the U.S. government and mainstream media are really concerned about foreign influence in American politics, they might look at Israel and other nations with much more clout than Russia The core absurdity of the Russia-gate frenzy is its complete lack of proportionality. Indeed, the hysteria is reminiscent of Sen. Joe McCarthy warning that "one communist in the faculty of one university is one communist too many" or Donald Trump's highlighting a few "bad hombres" raping white American women. It's not that there were no Americans who espoused communist views at universities and elsewhere or that there are no "bad hombre" rapists; it's that these rare exceptions were used to generate a dangerous overreaction in service of a propagandistic agenda. Historically, we have seen this technique used often when demagogues seize on an isolated event and exploit it emotionally to mislead populations to war.

DARPA Using Warfare Technology on Unsuspecting Civilians for Mass Mind Control "IndyWatch Feed World"

Never mind the bombs and bullets or other conventional weaponry, consider the use of hi-tech stealth weapons. Not just for use in warfare, but for other nefarious purposes.

A number of whistleblowers have come out of the woodwork to let us know that governmental agencies such as DARPA (Defence Advanced Research Project Agency) are using some of these hi-tech stealth weapons on unsuspecting civilians for mass mind control.

Through his research, such as that based on the startling revealing information he obtained from whistleblowers, author Dr Nick Begich explains the nature of the operations and hidden ulterior motives behind this rapidly developing mind control technology: 

The mind control technology originates from the work of original scientists such as Jos Delgado and his EEG (electroencephalograph), bio-physics studies on subjects. The technology began with brain implants, which were later removed as it developed.

Zuckerberg's Facebook fake news problem isn't going away "IndyWatch Feed World"

Facebook has 2 billion users, record profits, vast influence, and big problems in Washington. Technically speaking, Mark Zuckerberg has been on paternity leave. In late August his wife, Priscilla Chan, gave birth to their second child, a girl. But though Zuckerberg, the chief executive officer of Facebook Inc., stayed away from the office for a month after the delivery, he has been utterly unable to avoid what's become a second full-time job: managing an escalating series of political crises. In early September, Facebook disclosed that it sold $100,000 in political ads during the 2016 election to buyers who it later learned were connected to the Russian government. Richard Burr of North Carolina and Mark Warner of Virginia, the most senior Republican and Democratic members of the Senate Intelligence Committee, have said they're considering holding a hearing, in which case Zuckerberg could be asked to testify. Meanwhile, special counsel Robert Mueller has made Facebook a focus of his investigation into collusion between the Russian government and Donald Trump's campaign. A company official says it's "in regular contact with members and staff on the Hill" and has "had numerous meetings over the course of many months" with Warner. On Sept. 21, Zuckerberg said the company would turn over the ads to Congress and would do more to limit interference in elections in the future. Facebook acknowledges that it has already turned over records to Mueller, which suggests, first, that the special counsel had a search warrant and, second, that Mueller believes something criminal happened on Zuckerberg's platform.

6 Tricks That Will Make it Impossible For Men Stop Thinking About You "IndyWatch Feed World"

Getting a guy to think about you is not quite as hard as you may think. Women have lots of tricks up their sleeves, and if you happen to be a lady who needs a little reminding this article is for you.

While the things below may not seem like much they work like a charm. Getting someone to think about you boils down to how you treat them and make them feel. Sure, you may have a pretty face, but if you treat someone like complete shit chances are they will never want you on their mind to being with. Of course, in time this person may not be able to stop thinking about you on his own, but if you feel like you could use something to speed up the process these 6 things will help.

6 Tricks That Will Make Men Unable to Stop Thinking About You:

1. Be interesting and LISTEN to what he has to say.

While not everyone will find you interesting, and that is fine, you can make him think you are! Take time to think of things to talk about before going to see him. This will help make things flow better. When it comes to making the conversation perfect, listen. Let him talk and really pay attention to what he has to say. With that being said, dont let him be the only one to talk really have a real conversation.

2. Find things you have in common and experience them together.

The more you have in common the better, but dont go overboard and become his twin. If you find you have similar hobbies go do that thing together. For instance, my boyfriend and I both love hiking, so experiencing it together helped us bond in a sense.

3. Be yourself but also flirt hook him in.

Be true to yourself, no one wants to get in a relationship with someone who they thought was perfect only to find out she was pretending. If flirting isnt your thing you can always send out subtle hints that you are interested. After the first few dates if you arent feeling it then dont push it.

4. Follow his lead but take charge when the time is right.

Make him think that you are letting him take charge, if he want to try that new Chinese restaurant downtown dont shut him down, go for it. Relationships are about compromise, and nobody wants to be controlled.

It is also important to note, some men like women who are submissive in the bedroom, and others are waiting for you to take charge. Get to know him and figure out what it is he wants and enjoys. Wh...

NASA's asteroid chasing spacecraft "Osiris-Rex" swings by earth en route to space rock "IndyWatch Feed World"

NASA's asteroid-chasing spacecraft swung by Earth on Friday on its way to a space rock. Launched a year ago, Osiris-Rex passed within 10,711 miles (17,237 kilometers) of the home planet early Friday afternoon - above Antarctica. It used Earth's gravity as a slingshot to put it on a path toward the asteroid Bennu. Osiris-Rex should reach the small, roundish asteroid next year and, in 2020, collect some of its gravel for return to Earth. If all goes well, scientists should get the samples in 2023. Friday's flyby was a quick hello: The spacecraft zoomed by at about 19,000 mph (31,000 kph). NASA took precautions to ensure Osiris-Rex - about the size of an SUV - did not slam into any satellites.

Oppression In Spain: Heavy Handed Madrid Government Suppressing Catalan Independence Referendum "IndyWatch Feed World"

The Madrid government has arrested numerous local leaders, seized voting materials, usurped local police command, and undertaken a campaign of censorship in an effort to stop a referendum from happening (archived). On September 27th, 2015 the government of the nominally autonomous region of Catalonia announced its intent to pursue a peaceful secession from the Madrid government and become an independent republic. Towards this cause they scheduled a referendum on independence for October 1st of this year.

As is typical of other contemporary European secession movements, there is substantial resentment that the self declared supranational government in Madrid is burdening the Catalan nation with the woe demanded by the failing two headed EU Reich centered in Berlin and Brussels. Apparently the level of resentment has hit a point where Angela Merkel's puppets in Madrid are seeking to prevent a vote they are sure to lose for the sake of preserving "Our Democracy".

The Scientist Who Controlled People with Brain Implants "IndyWatch Feed World"

Brain implantation and manipulation is a mainstay of science fiction. Often, characters can gain extra memory or get smarter, by having chips placed within the brain. 

(Or you can wind up mind-controlled by a psychopath. It's a mixed bag.)

But in real life, one scientist made huge strides towards creating workable brain implants. In the 1950s and 1960s. Here's his story.

Jose Delgado performed experiments using permanent brain implants in bulls, primates, and humans beginning in the 1950s, with extremely successful results. Neuroscience often ignores this chapter of its history, but it's worth taking a look at Delgado's successes, and his long term goals for manipulation of humans and society.

Russia will Target U.S.-backed SDF in Syria if Provoked "IndyWatch Feed World"



Source: Covert Geopolitics

The United States' highly illegal operations in Syria has caused the delay of freeing civilians trapped in the remaining ISIS occupied territories in Syria.

After the combined forces of the Syrian Army and Russian special forces are targeted by the terrorists recently, a Russian general held a meeting with his US counterpart purposely to warn the latter of the grave consequences should its operations be hampered again.

American commandos are embedded with the so called "Syrian Democratic Forces."

MOSCOW/WASHINGTON (Reuters) Russia warned the United States on Thursday it would target U.S.-backed militias in Syria if Russian troops again came under fire, as the United States disclosed an unusual face-to-face meeting between U.S. and Russian generals meant to avoid such clashes.

The Russian warning underscored growing tensions over Syria between Moscow and Washington. While both oppose Islamic State (IS), they are engaged, via proxies, in a race for strategic influence and potential resources in the form of oilfields in eastern Syria's Deir al-Zor province.

The Russian Defence Ministry said the U.S.-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) had taken up positions on the eastern banks of the Euphrates with U.S. special forces, and twice had opened fire with mortars and artillery on Syrian troops who were working alongside Russian special forces.

"A representative of the U.S. military command in Al Udeid (the U.S. operations center in Qatar) was told in no uncertain terms that any attempts to open fire from areas where SDF fighters are located would be quickly shut down," Major-General Igor Konashenkov said in a statement.

"Fire points in those areas will be immediately suppressed with all military means."

Is the US Military Really Capable of Shooting Down North Korean Ballistic Missiles? "IndyWatch Feed World"



Source: Covert Geopolitics

Some American analysts are now asking why the North Korean missile was allowed to pass by a Japanese island with ringing alarm bells as the only response.

"According to some analysts, Americans may be overly confident in our military's ability to shoot down North Korean missiles if the country were to attempt to strike. Maybe the reason we haven't shot down North Korea's test missiles is that we can't. While we all certainly hope that our military would be able to successfully defend the country against incoming missiles, we need to be prepared for any possibility.

According to an article by Joe Cirincione of Defense One, the reason we don't shoot down North Korea's missiles when they fire them over Japan is because

We don't have the capability.

Joe Cirincione is the president of Ploughshares Fund and the author of several books about nuclear weapons, including Nuclear Nightmares: Securing the World Before It Is Too Late.

According to Cirincione, when Japanese Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga said, "We didn't intercept it because no damage to Japanese territory was expected," this was only partially true. It wasn't a threat, but they didn't have the capability to shoot it down due to the altitude.

Neither Japan nor the United States could have intercepted the missile. None of the theater ballistic missile defense weapons in existence can reach that high. It is hundreds of kilometers too high for the Aegis interceptors deployed on Navy ships off Japan. Even higher for the THAAD systems in South Korea and Guam. Way too high for the Patriot systems in Japan, which engage largely within the atmosphere.

All of these are basically designed to hit a missile in the post-mid-course or terminal phase, when it is on its...

World Bank Group Issues Its Biggest-Ever Catastrophe Bond

By Mathew Carr | August 4, 2017, 9:00 PM GMT+8

The World Bank Group issued its largest catastrophe bond, providing Mexico with financial protection of as much as $360 million against losses from tropical cyclones and earthquakes.

Mexico is among the countries most vulnerable to natural disasters, the bank said in a statement. Nearly a third of its population lives in areas exposed to hurricanes, storms, floods, earthquakes, and volcanic eruptions. The coverage is the equivalent of 71 percent of the country's economic output considered at risk from two or more natural hazards.

The bonds were issued in three structures to provide coverage against earthquakes, Atlantic tropical cyclones, and Pacific tropical cyclones. If a natural disaster occurs that's eligible for coverage, some or all of the bond proceeds will be made available to the Mexican Fund for Natural Disasters.

The bank has arranged risk-transfer transactions worth about $1 billion in the past two months, compared with $2.5 billion in the past decade, it said by email. It's ramping up its activities as it seeks to help transfer risk from poorer nations.

Failed End Time Predictions: Brief History "IndyWatch Feed World"



Source: Waking Times | by Gregg Prescott, M.S.

Here are just a few of them:

In 1284, Pope Innocent III (d. 1216) predicted that the world would end 666 years after the rise of Islam. (do you see how long the divide and conquer principle has been going on?)

In 1658, Christopher Columbus claimed that the world was created in 5343 BCE, and would last 7000 years. Assuming no year zero, that means the end would come in 1658.

Mathematician Jacob Bernoulli predicted a comet would destroy the earth on April 5, 1719.

The newly formed Seventh Day Adventists, a group founded by former Millerites, predicted the Second Coming would be in 1874.

Mother Shipton, a 15th-century prophet, was quoted as saying "The world to an end shall come, In eighteen hundred and eighty one" in a book published in 1862. In 1873 it was revealed to be a forgery; however, this did not stop some people from expecting the end.

Camille Flammarion predicted that the 1910 appearance of Halley's Comet might destroy life on Earth, but not the planet itself.

Evangelist Wilbur Glenn Voliva announced that "the world is going to go 'puff' and disappear in September, 1935.

On December 21, 1954, according to Dorothy Martin, the world was to be destroyed by terrible flooding on this date, claimed this leader of a UFO cult called Brotherhood of the Seven Rays.

When Black Lives Matter & Trump Supporters Come Together -- This is what the Establishment Fears "IndyWatch Feed World"



Source: The Free Thought Project | by Matt Agorist

This counter-protest began just like all the counter-protests before, people gathered around and began shouting in faces. "You don't like this country, you leave!" shouted one man, repeating the ill-thought-out, yet often repeated, asinine talking point implying that people who criticize the government, should leave instead.

The Black Lives Matter members remained militant and did not stand down as they chanted "black lives matter!" over and over, while Trump supporters encircled them.

As the hostile crowd began to surround the small group of Black Lives Matter protesters, event organizers on stage told them to back off and come back to the stage albeit they did it in the most offensive way saying, "don't give them the spotlight. They don't exist."

**

But, like every other human on this planet, they do exist. And in order for all of us to coexist, we must be at peace. We don't have to like each other, we just have to not be violent toward one another.

Shortly after reigning in the Trump supporters back to the stage, instead of simply insulting the Black Lives Matter activists further, the organizers did something entirely unexpected they invited them to speak.

Rally lead organizer Tommy Gunn told the Trump fans that the BLMers would have two minutes to speak.

"What we are going to do is something you're not used to," Gunn told the BLM activists. "We're going to give you two minutes of our platform to put your message out. Whether [people in the crowd] disagree or agree with your message is irrelevant. It's the fact that you have the right to have the me...

Personal and Global Attacks Become Lethal: Is the Disclosure War Reaching a Climax? [Part I]

September 23, 2017, 12:12 pm



Unprecedented solar emissions. Huge wildfires smoking out the US. Massive earthquakes. Three different monster hurricanes that steered perfectly into Houston, Florida and Puerto Rico.

Damages to the already fragile US economy could easily exceed 1 trillion dollars -- at a time when there is nothing left to restore it with.

Within the UFO / Seeking Truth community, we saw the tragic deaths of Jim Marrs and William Tompkins -- as well as the possible attempted murders of Graham Hancock and David Wilcock, as we will discuss in Part Two.

David's insider 'Paul' had everything he owned stolen from him, as well as serious death threats. Pete Peterson's house has now been emptied to the bare walls and his trailers, packed with priceless classified items, are under imminent threat.

A massive, coordinated online attack against Corey Goode, including the destruction of his business and the expected loss of his children, was intended to lead to a fake, staged 'suicide', made believable by his overall anticipated collapse.

This all occurred shortly after Ancient Aliens, a top History Channel show, featured Corey Goode and William Tompkins' Secret Space Program testimony in an episode entitled "The Majestic Twelve", which aired on July 7, 2017.

So much has happened since our last update a month ago that it is difficult to summarize everything. Are these events interconnected? The answer definitely appears to be yes.

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

A conjunction of comets is captured in this pretty star field from the morning of September 17. Discovered in July by a robotic sky survey searching for supernovae, comet C/2017 O1 ASASSN is at the lower left. The visible greenish glow of its coma is produced by the fluorescence of diatomic carbon molecules in sunlight. Nearing its closest approach to the Sun, the binocular comet was only about 7.2 light-minutes from Earth.

In the same telescopic field of view is the long-tailed, outbound comet C/2015 ER61 PanSTARRS at the upper right, almost 14 light-minutes away. Many light-years distant, the starry background includes faint, dusty nebulae of the Milky Way. The well-known Pleiades star cluster lies just off the top right of the frame.

Enormous 5.8 Magnitude Earthquake Strikes off the Coast of California "IndyWatch Feed World"

With everything that has been going on in the world these days, of course, earthquakes are now making their way into the mix. A 5.7 magnitude earthquake hit off the coast of Northern California just last week.

This quake did not do any damage that we know of thus far and no tsunami warning has been issued. However, it was followed by a 5.6 magnitude quake according to the USGS. Both quakes seem to have struck west of the town known as Petrolia and were not widely felt along the coast. Official Emergency Services say no initial injuries were reported.

 

The Sacramento Bee wrote that after the devastating earthquake in Mexico these smaller ones hitting California have everyone bracing themselves for the worst. They note that Time spoke to experts who pointed out that Southern California, LA, and San Francisco were the most at-risk areas in the country for the next destructive earthquake.

They reported as follows:

On the central coast, a magnitude 3.2 quake hit San Juan Bautista on Wednesday morning, and a magnitude 2.8 earthquake rumbled between Gilroy and Morgan Hill about 10 a.m. Thursday, television station KSBQ-8 reported. Stronger earthquakes were reported in Northern California with a magnitude 3.8 earthquake reported in Shasta County and a 3.0 in Humboldt County.

As you know, not too long ago, a 7.1 magnitude earthquake hit Mexico City and killed over 200 people. This could turn into something quite scary depending on how it progresses.

May your trails be crooked, winding, lonesome, dangerous, leading to the most amazing view. May your mountains rise into and above the clouds. May your rivers flow without end, meandering through pastoral valleys tinkling with bells, past temples and castles and poets' towers into a dark primeval forest where tigers belch and monkeys howl, through miasmal and mysterious swamps and down into a desert of red rock, blue mesas, domes and pinnacles and grottos of endless stone, and down again into a deep vast ancient unknown chasm where bars of sunlight blaze on profiled cliffs, where deer walk across the white sand beaches, where storms come and go as lightning clangs upon the high crags, where something strange and more beautiful and more full of wonder than your deepest dreams waits for you - beyond that next turning of the canyon walls.

The Radiance Of What Is
by Chet Raymo

In the summer of 1936, as I nestled snug in my mother's womb, Fortune magazine sent the young writer James Agee and the photographer Walker Evans to rural Alabama to report on how the Great Depression was affecting the poorest of the poor. For eight weeks they lived with three impoverished sharecropper families. (Pictured below is the family of Bud Fields. Click to enlarge.)


Their combined work never appeared in Fortune, but it was published as a book- Let Us Now Praise Famous Men- in 1941. The book was not an immediate success, but decades later, after Agee won a posthumous Pulitzer for "A Death in the Family", it found a new audience and eventually a place in the American canon of literary and photographic masterpieces.

The more people there are who ignore facts that contradict their beliefs, the likelier a dictatorship will emerge within a given country. Here is how aristocracies, throughout the Ages, have controlled the masses, by taking advantage of this widespread tendency people have, to ignore contrary facts: What social scientists call "confirmation bias" and have repeatedly found to be rampant,* is causing the public to be easily manipulated, and has thus destroyed democracy by replacing news-reporting, by propaganda - 'news' that's false - in a culture where lies which pump the agendas of the powerful (including lies pumped by the billionaire owners of top 'news'media and of the media they own) are almost never punished (and are often not even denied to be true). Thus, lies by those powerful liars almost always succeed at enslaving the minds of the millions, to believe what the top economic-and-power class want those millions of people to believe - no matter how false it might happen actually to be.

In Ukraine, Fears of Technological Terrorism Cause Free Expression to Decline "IndyWatch Feed World"

(GV)  Olga Kyryliuk, PhD, is an expert in International Law, and co-founder of the Ukrainian NGO Digital Defenders Partners DDP (  in Ukrainian), focused on protecting human rights online and promoting the idea of free, open and affordable to all Internet.

DDP is a member of the Internet Freedom Platform of Eastern and Central Europe and Eurasia, established by civil society organizations that work on fostering of the freedom of expression, association and flow of information on internet.

In this interview, Kyryliuk spoke to Global Voices about the results of the recent research, and the current situation with digital rights in Ukraine.

Filip Stojanovski (FS): DDP recently published an analytical report on freedom of expression in Ukraine. What is your general assessment?

Olga Kyryliuk (OK): Freedom of expression is gradually deteriorating in Ukraine as the conflict in the East of the country gets protracted. The threats faced by Ukraine are of hybrid nature, and, therefore, require some non-linear reaction and deterrence tactics. Somehow succeeding over time in maintaining its military positions, Ukraine appeared to be absolutely unprepared to handle the information confrontation. Instead of ensuring equal protection to all the values recognized in any democratic society, Ukraine put itself before a dilemma of protecting either national security, or freedom of expression. And I strongly believe that this is the choice that should have never emerged. We should never sacrifice one basic value for the sake of the other, but rather try to balance them as much as possible.

FS: Unlike other European countries, Ukraine is in a particular situation: since 2014 parts of its territory are not under control of the government, but no state of war had been declared. How does this affect the level of freedom of expression in the country?

OK: This is another aspect where, in my opinion, Ukraine has to deal with extremely challenging reality of armed conflict without even using proper names to define this reality. And it really...

The people of Afghanistan are not going to profit from US mining rare-earth minerals there: it is always going to be the elite in that country and the foreign corporations, said journalist and foreign policy strategist Michael Hughes. President Trump met with Afghan leader Ashraf Ghani in New York on Thursday to discuss joint efforts to mine the country's mineral resources. According to the US government, Afghanistan has a trillion dollars' worth of untapped rare-earth minerals, including those used in the production of electronics. That is about the same amount the US has spent in the country since the 2001 invasion. Last month, President Trump outlined his new strategy for Afghanistan with thousands of extra troops and no deadline for a withdrawal, also saying Washington needs to think about its economic interests.

"The only thing I think of is that Trump may be 'pushing it' out of perception so that it looks like there is a good reason to stay," journalist and foreign policy strategist Michael Hughes told RT.

Travelling by plane has become an everyday activity - but our bodies and brains are still affected by it.

Yet, frequent fliers may have found themselves - or at least witnessed others - welling up at the most innocuous of films while on a long airline journey. Even lighthearted comedies such as Bee Movie, Bridesmaids and The Simpsons can trigger the water works in passengers who would normally remain dry-eyed if watching these on the ground. Physicist and television presenter Brian Cox and musician Ed Sheeran have both admitted they can get a bit over-emotional when watching movies on aircraft. A new survey by Gatwick Airport in London found 15% of men and 6% of women said they were more likely to cry when watching a film on a flight than they would if seeing it at home.

But if you demand the same for yourself and Christianity, he'll throw a fit. So it's fitting, I suppose, that Democrats are now throwing a fit...after Republicans used their same underhanded tactics against them. Because Republicans, like Democrats, are now calling for a special prosecutor to investigate the 2016 elections. Except this time, they're investigating Clinton, Comey, and Lynch.

The Social Contract Is a Fraud "IndyWatch Feed World"

 
The Social Contract Is a Fraud
by Bill Bonner

There are many theories to explain government. Most are nothing but scams, justifications and puffery. One tries to put something over on the common man, the other claims it was for his own good, and the third pretends that he'd be lost without it. Most are not really "theories" at all but prescriptions, blueprints for creating the kind of government the "theorist" would like to have. Not surprisingly, the blueprints flatter his intellect and engage his imagination.

The "social contract," for example, is a fraud. You can't have a contract unless you have two willing and able parties. They must come together in a meeting of the minds - a real agreement about what they are going to do together. But what is the "social contract" with government? There was never a meeting of the minds. The deal was forced on the public. And now, imagine that you want out. Can you simply "break the contract"? You refuse to pay your taxes and refuse to be bossed around by TSA agents and other government employees. How long would it be before you got put in jail?

What kind of contract is it that you don't agree to and can't get out of? They can dress it up, print out a piece of paper, have a solemn ceremony in which everyone pretends it is a real contract. But it's not worth the paper it's not written on. Also, what kind of a contract allows for one party to unilaterally change the terms of the deal? Congress passes new laws almost every day. The bureaucracy issues new edicts. The tax system is changed. The pound of flesh they got already wasn't enough; now they want a pound and a half!

Here are the critical questions: Why do we let other people tell us what to do; are we not all equal? What is the purpose of government? What does it cost, and what benefits does it confer?

8 Symptoms Your Anxiety Is Getting Worse Not Better "IndyWatch Feed World"

Its sad, actually, because my anxiety keeps me from enjoying things as much as I should at this age. Amanda Seyfried

 The National Institute of Mental Health estimates that approximately 29% of American adults have lived with an anxiety disorder over the course of their lifetime. These disorders can be life-altering, impacting and interfering with all areas of your life including your school work, job performance, relationships and even your ability to leave the house and function in the outside world. Involving more than the typical, temporary feelings of worry or fear that one experiences from time to time, but rather a more serious, nagging anxiety that doesnt go away, gradually getting worse over time.

Source: Lifehacker

 

There are a number of options for those that are suffering to work towards either treating or managing their condition, including self-help or support groups, cognitive behavioral therapy, medication or a number of stress management techniques. These management techniques may include meditating, taking focused deep breaths, writing or journaling, exercising or creating artwork among other ideas. Often found to be effective, there are times that these techniques fail to calm our nerves.

Some people have the ability to tolerate and reduce the intensity of anxiety, explains Vena M. Davis, a licensed clinical social worker, In the event those things are no longer enough, I would invite the person to consider the pros and cons of receiving therapeutic support from a licensed mental health professional. A professional can help the person learn additional strategies to manage anxiety if it is long-lasting and happening more often than the persons usual experience. If the aforementioned continues unaddressed, the person may experience challenges in maintaining pleasant relationships The person may have challenges in maintaining a pleasant relationship with themselves, as well.

"The Sandcastle" "IndyWatch Feed World"

"The Sandcastle"
By Jeff Thomas

"The decline from democracy to tyranny is both a natural and inevitable one. Thats not a pleasant thought to have to consider, but its a fact, nonetheless. In every case, a democracy will deteriorate as the result of the electorate accepting the loss of freedom in trade for largesse from their government. This process may be fascism, socialism, communism or a basket of isms, but tyranny is the inevitable endgame of democracy. Like the destruction of a sandcastle by the incoming tide, it requires time to transpire, but in time, the democracy, like the sandcastle, will be washed away in its entirety.

Why should this be so? Well, as I commented some years ago, The concept of government is that the people grant to a small group of individuals the ability to establish and maintain controls over them. The inherent flaw in such a concept is that any government will invariably and continually expand upon its controls, resulting in the ever-diminishing freedom of those who granted them the power.

Hurricane Maria's forecast path edges closer to North Carolina's Outer Banks "IndyWatch Feed World"

Still a Category 3 storm on Saturday, Hurricane Maria was rolling northward away from the Bahamas on a path that could affect parts of the U.S. East Coast next week. Maria pummeled the Turks and Caicos Islands early Friday, its western eyewall passing over the capital city of Cockburn Town. For the first time in several days, Maria poses no immediate threat to land. At 11 am EDT Saturday, Maria was located about 320 miles east of Nassau, The Bahamas, moving north-northwest at 8 mph. Maria's top sustained winds had dropped to 115 mph, putting it at the low end of the Category 3 range. Maria was not a classically symmetric hurricane on Friday night, but its appearance on satellite had become dramatically stronger by midday Saturday. Very strong thunderstorms (convection) were wrapping around Maria's ragged, 35-mile-wide eye. As is typically the case for hurricanes moving poleward, Maria's wind field has been gradually expanding. Hurricane-force winds now extend up to 60 miles from Maria's center, with tropical-storm-force winds extending out some 200 miles to the northeast of the center. Maria has been successfully fending off moderately strong wind shear of around 15 knots, with the help of its well-established structure as well as very warm sea surface temperatures (SSTs) of 29-30C (84-86F).

Anthony Lamar Smith killed in St Louis, killer scot free "IndyWatch Feed World"

This 22 September 2017 video from Missouri in the USA says about itself:

That verdict was a travesty

Watch: St. Louis workers denounce acquittal of killer cop, crackdown on protests

By Genevieve Leigh and George Gallanis reporting from St. Louis

23 September 2017

Protests in St. Louis against the acquittal of Jason Stockley, the police officer who shot and killed Anthony Lamar Smith on camera in 2011, have now entered their second week. Police in riot gear have arrested hundreds of mostly peaceful protesters and journalists in what amounts to a military-style lockdown of the city using pepper spray and tear gas.

WSWS reporters spoke with protesters and St. Louis workers about the verdict and the suppression of protests by the police.

By Niles Niemuth in the USA, 23 September 2017:

The 2011 killing of Anthony Lamar Smith by St. Louis police officer Jason Stockley was an open-and-shut case of police murder.

Smith was a 24-year-old African-American who was driving away from police after they burst in on what they claim was a drug deal. Stockley, who is white, was recorded on a dashboard camera saying, Im going to kill this motherfucker, dont you know it. Less than 45 seconds later, his partner Brian Bianchi rammed their police SUV into Smiths car. Video of the incident shows that Smith remained in the car and made no attempt to flee.

Stockley jumped out of the SUV and shot Smith five times. Forensic evidence revealed that Stockley fired the kill shot from six inches away. The officer then returned to his vehicle, rummaged through a duffel bag and returned to Smiths car to plant a throwaway gun on the dead victim. Tests showed the gun had only Stockleys DNA on it.

6 Obstacles Those Who Choose Not to Conform Must Overcome "IndyWatch Feed World"

In order to be our true selves in life, we, for the most part, must not conform. Conforming in this day and age means allowing the rest of the world to tell us who we are, how we should dress, what things we should find interesting and so much more.

While it may sound simple, it is anything but. Doing things without others to back you can be terrifying. For most, conforming was never an option and I learned from a very young age that standing out was not something the rest of the world wanted people doing. Those who choose to stick to the status quo attack in groups and will do anything to tear us free-thinkers down.

Everyone faces their own challenges in life that much is of course, true. When we do not conform life can become quite complicated. Below you will find a list of obstacles that those who choose to be themselves have to face.

1. Being the black sheep of the family.

Growing up as the black sheep in the family is not fun at all. I was easily the black sheep of my family and they still do not see me as a normal person. While I am different, there is only one thing that sets me apart.

2. Facing your fears without hesitation.

When you are a non-conformist, you have to face all of your fears as they show themselves. You dont have time to live inside a bubble. Everything must be overcome.

3. Not having very many friends.

Having few friends gets lonely. Sometimes you want to talk to someone, anyone, but there is no one there. Seeking out like-minded individuals will benefit you greatly.

4. Being seen as a weirdo.

Conformists like to call the things they do not understand harsh names or belittle them. No one is more important than anyone else. We all matter. Whether you call a non-conformist a weirdo or not, we know you are thinking it.

5. Living in a world of people who refuse to think for themselves.

Dealing with people who are all thinking and doing the same thing is exhausting. You feel so alone when you are surrounded by people who judge you and envy you at the same time. It can be a bit frustrating at times.

6. Being unsure of what comes next.

People who live life without conforming are not always sure about what steps they need to take next and they dont have the same safety net to fall back on that most people do. These people have to take what they have and run with it in a sense. They can figure out where to go from here but also are not always given enough time to do so.

U.S. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis Weighs Using Kinetic Weapon On North Korea "IndyWatch Feed World"

U.S. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis Weighs Using Kinetic Weapon On North Korea | kinetic-weapon-north-korea-1024x561 | Military Military Weapons Science & Technology Special Interests

By: Aaron Kesel, Activist Post

U.S. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis hinted at using a kinetic weapon on Tuesday while discussing tensions with North Korea when he made a Freudian slip.

Mattis was asked whether there was any military option the US can take with North Korea that would not put Seoul at grave risk, Mattis responded, Yes, there are, but I will not go into details.

Later during the press conference, another reporter questioned Mattis and caught him off-guard:

Just to clarify, you said that there were possible military options that would not create a grave risk to Seoul, a reporter asked. Are we talking kinetic options as well?

Yes, I dont want to go into that, Mattis responded.

Previously, Mattis stated that a war with North Korea would involve the massive shelling of an allys capital, (South Korea) which is one of the most densely packed cities on earth.

U.S. President Donald Trump in a speech to the United Nations on Tuesday threatened to totally destroy North Korea if Pyongyang didnt quit its nuclear testing and threats.

This also comes after the U.S. and South Korea wrapped up its annual military drill harassing of North Korea, reminding the dictatorship of its military presence at its southern border.

Military-Industrial Complex reaps billions as NATO hypes fake 'Russian menace' "IndyWatch Feed World"

The military of the Russian Federation is organized in four districts - west, central, east and south. Each year one of the districts will stage a division size maneuver. 10,000 to 15,000 soldiers leave their quarters to move against imaginary adversaries. Their training is complemented by various military and civilian staffs exercises. The active part of the medium-size maneuver takes about a week and includes some live firing. This year, like in 2009 and 2013, the turn was on the western military district to run its quadrennial exercise. It included, as is usual in the western district, units from and within Russia's ally Belarus. The name of this regular training event is simply "West", Zapad in Russian. Zapad-2017 was publicly announced and foreign military observers were invited to watch it.

Clapper: His non-denial denials revisited "IndyWatch Feed World"

The former intelligence chief never actually refuted Obama administration spying on Trump. It would be peculiar if, as he now claims, James Clapper did not know about the Obama administration's monitoring of Paul Manafort. At the time, which appears to have been the autumn of 2016, Clapper was Obama's national intelligence director. The (dubious) raison d'tre of the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) - a post-9/11 layering of yet more bureaucracy atop bureaucratic sprawl - was to ensure efficient information flow through the "community" of U.S. intelligence agencies. That said, it is a gross exaggeration to contend, as some are doing, that new revelations about the surveillance of Manafort, the former chairman of the Trump campaign, show that Clapper lied in a March 2017 interview by NBC's Chuck Todd. Instead, what we now know proves what I warned at the time of the interview: It was a mistake to construe Clapper's answers to Todd as a blanket denial of Obama spying on the Trump campaign. Carefully parsed, Clapper's comments left open the possibility - which some of us regarded as a high probability - that Manafort and other Trump associates had been under Obama-administration surveillance.

Kilju is home to the Punggyeri nuclear site, where North Korea's sixth and largest nuclear test was conducted on September 3. There were conflicting reports as to the strength of the quake, with South Korea's weather agency reporting that it measured 3.0 on the Richter Scale, as cited by the country's Yonhap news agency.

Passengers are outraged by the bombshell announcement, which they say will leave them unable to afford late-night lifts home and will put thousands of drivers out of work. Ahead of a planned appeal, which will see the dispute dragged into court, at least 400,000 Londoners have signed a petition calling for the decision to be reversed. But critics of Uber insist it has failed to properly vet its drivers and is an example of the so-called 'gig economy' that gives workers no employment rights.

The dismissal of an unwilling Chuck Hagel as Secretary of Defense in 2014 was, I think, a watershed in the fortunes of the China hawks, both in the Pentagon and at Pacific Command. Perhaps because it is bad form to explore the possibility that Hagel was purged for insufficient enthusiasm for a pro-active China confrontation agenda, nobody went there. But I did. Natch. In 2015, I buried my analysis in a tediously long piece that was meant to give an overview of the evolution of US China policy, and provide a corrective to the "Chinese aggression" meme that China hawks like to lean on. The narrative of escalating Chinese aggression is central to the China hawks' thesis that we need an escalating response. Rather interestingly, today a lot of this narrative is coming out of Australia. Google "Chinese influence Australia" and you'll get an idea of the barrage of local and global coverage keying on the skillfully shaped message that Chinese influence--though it is not illegal--must be feared. I've recently come to the conclusion that spate of panic stricken reports emerging from Australia concerning the China menace in economics, politics, and academics are a belated and improvised substitute for what was supposed to be the real deal: a pivot from Obama namby-pambyism to steely Clinton resolve to confront China in 2016.

Correcting Gregory Bateson "IndyWatch Feed World"

Forty-five years ago the late Gregory Bateson [1904 1980] wrote these ominous words:

If you put God outside and set him vis--vis his creation and if you have the idea that you are created in his image, you will logically and naturally see yourself as outside and against the things around you.  And as you arrogate all mind to yourself, you will see the world around you as mindless and therefore not entitled to moral or ethical consideration.  The environment will seem to be yours to exploit.  Your survival unit will be you and your folks or conspecifics against the environment of other social units, other races and the brutes and vegetables.

If this is your estimate of your relation to nature and you have an advanced technology, your likelihood of survival will be that of a snowball in hell.  You will die either of the toxic by-products of your own hate, or, simply, of overpopulation and overgrazing.  The raw materials of the world are finite.1

Although Bateson was prescient in asserting that the likelihood of survival of our species is that of a snowball in hell, his statement needs to be corrected/updated in several ways:

  1. When some humans began conceiving deity as transcendenti.e., as existing apart from Earth System(rather than immanent), this advance was not the beginning of our problems as humans.
  2. Although conceiving deity as transcendent did play a role in the downward path that our species has been on since the Neolithic, many other factors have come into play since that time.
  3. Batesons overpopulation and overgrazing causes are in need of updating.

Let me next, then, address each of these three points.

Our Apartness

During the Neolithic agriculture began to replace foraging as the source of sustenance; the groups affected began to grow in population size, and the erosion of bonds that had connected one member of the group with other members fostered the development of societal changesmost notably the development of social classes, and the beginning of exploitation....

Supernatural possession: Demons on trial "IndyWatch Feed World"

The Devil made me do it. This has long been the plea of those who have been caught doing something wicked that is uncharacteristic of their usual behavior. Most of the time, we take it only as a figure of speech to brush off an aberrant deviation from the norm. However, sometimes the meaning can become all too literal. In 1981, a brutal murder occurred in a tranquil town on the East Coast of the United States; a vicious crime that the perpetrator claimed was not carried out by his own hand, but rather that of demons that had taken him over. It was a defense that would carry over into an actual court of law to become the nation's first case of a court defense seeking to blame a crime on demonic possession, and would trigger a media blitz of this spectacular tale of menacing supernatural evil on trial. The whole strange tale begins in the quite, affluent, and peaceful neighborhood of Brookfield, Connecticut, where an unassuming family, the Glatzels, had arrived in order to clean and put in order a rental property they had recently acquired in this scenic town of 13,000. Shortly after they arrived, a series of bizarre events began to unfurl that would mark the beginning of the madness that was about to spiral out of control. One day, about a month after they had arrived, Mrs. Judy Glatzel reported that her youngest son, 11 year-old David, had suddenly and inexplicably fallen down rather forcefully onto the bed as if he had been shoved. When questioned about the occurrence later, David told his mother that he had in fact been pushed by what he described as an old man with "burnt-looking skin," who had pointed a finger at him and growled the word "Beware" before throwing him onto the bed.

Traveler warning: Meth-laced soda in Mexico "IndyWatch Feed World"

Health professionals in Arizona are warning those traveling to Mexico to be aware of possible contaminated 7Up beverages in the Mexicali area. The contaminated soft drinks caused seven people to become ill and has killed one person, according to the Attorney General of Justice of the State of Baja California. Mexicali is located about 240 miles from Phoenix and 124 miles from San Diego, just south of the California border and Interstate 8. According to a Banner Health news release, medical toxicologists and physicians are on alert after reports surfaced that methamphetamine was found in 7Up drinks originating in Mexicali. Baja California's Health Department officials said health authorities have removed the products from shelves. Chris Barnes, spokesman for Dr Pepper Snapple Group, reassured that no 7Up products in the United States have been contaminated. The company distributes 7Up in the United States. "None of the 7Up products sold in the U.S. are affected by the issue being reported in Mexico," said Barnes. "Dr Pepper Snapple owns and licenses the 7Up brand only in the U.S. and its territories. We do not market, sell or distribute the brand internationally."

Federal government tells 21 states they were targeted by hackers before 2016 election - doesn't give any details "IndyWatch Feed World"

The federal government on Friday told election officials in 21 states that hackers targeted their systems before last year's presidential election. The notification came roughly a year after U.S. Department of Homeland Security officials first said states were targeted by hacking efforts possibly connected to Russia. The states that told The Associated Press they had been targeted included some key political battlegrounds, such as Florida, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Wisconsin. The AP contacted every state election office to determine which ones had been informed that their election systems had been targeted. The others confirming were Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Illinois, Iowa, Maryland, Minnesota, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Oregon, Texas and Washington. Being targeted does not mean that sensitive voter data was manipulated or results were changed. A hacker targeting a system without getting inside is similar to a burglar circling a house checking for unlocked doors and windows.

Tom Fitton claims Mueller is setting up his own 'justice department' "IndyWatch Feed World"

Mueller's team of lawyers is so big and powerful now, that Fitton described it as the Special Counsel's 'own Justice Department'. This is all thanks to AG Jeff Sessions recusing himself. In response to a Daily Beast article titled Bob Mueller Brings on 'Tough' Guy Stephen Kelly to Handle Capitol Hill, Fitton said, "Bob Mueller setting up his own Justice Department. Shut it down." The Daily Beast article says Mueller has now brought on a liaison to Capitol Hill: Having hired a host of seasoned federal prosecutors for his probe of the president's associates, Bob Mueller has now brought on a liaison to Capitol Hill. Stephen Kelly, formerly the longtime congressional affairs chief for the FBI, has joined the probe, according to several sources familiar with his new role. "Stephen Kelly is exactly who I would hire if I wanted to share as little information with Congress as possible," said a Hill staffer who has interacted with Kelly in his new role as Mueller's congressional liaison. Robert Mueller also just hired his SEVENTEENTH liberal hack lawyer to investigate Trump. The latest hack is an Obama/Hillary donor. Fitton is right. Mueller has essentially set up his own Justice Department; he's the one doing all the investigating while Trump's Justice Department sits idly by doing absolutely NOTHING.

Pentagon spokeswoman Dana White says US flew nuclear-capable B-1B bombers just off coast of North Korea "IndyWatch Feed World"

The US has flown nuclear-capable B-1B Lancer bombers escorted by F-15 fighters off North Korea's coast venturing the "farthest north of the Demilitarized Zone," separating the two Koreas, in the 21st century, the Pentagon's spokesperson said. "This is the farthest north of the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) any U.S. fighter or bomber aircraft have flown off North Korea's coast in the 21st century, underscoring the seriousness with which we take (North Korea's) reckless behavior," said Pentagon spokeswoman Dana White. The DMZ is a strip of land running across the Korean Peninsula near the 38th Parallel, separating North Korea from South Korea. It was created in 1953, following the armistice which ended the Korean War. "This mission is a demonstration of US resolve and a clear message that the President has many military options to defeat any threat. North Korea's weapons program is a grave threat to the Asia-Pacific region and the entire international community. We are prepared to use the full range of military capabilities to defend the US homeland and our allies," the spokeswoman added.

Will French ortolan bunting eating stop at last? "IndyWatch Feed World"

This is an ortolan bunting video from France.

From BirdLife:

22 Sep 2017

In France, the Ortolan Bunting may soon be finally off the menu

The French Ministry of Ecology, Nicolas Hulot has committed to ending the large-scale trapping of Ortolan Bunting, which takes place to meet demand for a cruel dish where the songbird is blinded, plumpened and drowned in brandy. Its a practice that has driven population declines of up to 84% in Europe since 1980.

By Alex Dale

Ortolan is a dish savoured with an almost ritualistic relish. Custom dictates that the diner eats the bird while wearing a napkin over their head; this, it is said, is to ensure the rich aromas do not escape while the gourmand chews the bird, bones and all, a process that lasts for several minutes. Pragmatically, the ritual may also have arisen because eating it is a messy business indeed. Or, others might say, out of shame. Because the process of delivering the Ortolan Bunting Emberiza hortulana from perch to palate is a gruesome affair indeed.

The cruelty begins in the field, where around 30,000 Ortolan Buntings are captured every year during the autumn migration, as their flightpath from eastern Europe to west Africa takes them across France and in particular Landes, a poaching hotspot in the south-west of France. Here, songbirds are trapped in huge numbers, either in nets, or, in Provence, by getting snared by glue smeared on the branches of their favoured trees. BirdLife estimates around 500,000 protected passerines are illegally caught every year in France. Common Chaffinch Fringilla coelebs and Brambling Fringilla montifringilla are also targets for poachers, and many other species, such as European Goldfinch...

Hundreds of homeless have seemingly vanished in Salt Lake City following "police operation" "IndyWatch Feed World"

The streets around Salt Lake City's downtown emergency shelter have long been home to hundreds of homeless people. In recent weeks, though, nearly all seem to have vanished following a police operation. Local residents are mystified as to where they've gone. The Salt Lake City police chief, Mike Brown, said he had visited parks and the Jordan river, which threads its way to the Great Salt Lake and has homeless camps dotted along its banks, but he hadn't seen an influx from downtown. Sgt Brandon Shearer has been up in a police helicopter looking for camps and seemed equally perplexed when asked where the people had gone. "I don't know," he said. "That's a good question." Advocates, for their part, fear a humanitarian crisis is brewing. The unfolding drama is all the more remarkable considering that several years ago, national media reports published claims by Utah that it had "won the war" on homelessness there, at least when it came to housing those who had been outside the longest. Jon Stewart ran a laudatory piece titled "The homeless homed". But the picture wasn't quite that simple.

Terrorists are filmed in blind panic as they are hunted down in the desert as their so-called caliphate crumbles into sand THIS is the moment a group of ISIS jihadis are blown to smithereens after being hunted down by a Syrian government tank. Footage filmed on a head-cam inside an armoured car shows the moment the death cult troops spot a tank. One of the jihadis can be heard screaming: "Tank on the right side. The tank..the tank..the tank is over there, over there, over there." The machine can't be seen in the clip but a bright flash is visible which could suggest that its barrel is firing rounds. The jihadi can then be heard crying out: "Anti-tanks oh anti-tanks..follow us." Another asks where the tank is. And the jihadi replies: "Over there, the tank will bomb us." The armoured car then tries to out-drive the tank before stopping. Someone can be heard saying: "No-one gets off...stop...stop." Then there are pleas for the anti-tank units to protect them.

Guess Who Concocted the War on Terror Doctrine Before 9/11? "IndyWatch Feed World"

Guess Who Concocted the War on Terror Doctrine Before 9/11? | war-on-terror | 911 Truth Propaganda Sleuth Journal Special Interests US News War Propaganda World News

The War on Terror is a concoction to manipulate you out of your rights and allow an endless war against a faceless enemy.

War on Terror has become a catchcry phrase after the biggest of all false flag operations, September 11th. While its true that 9/11 became the pretext for the War on Terror, and catapulted the doctrine from an idea to official US policy (and a preeminent Western ideology going into the 21st century), the idea didnt originate with the George W. Bush Administration. The origins of the phrase War on Terror can actually be traced back to around 1979 and to another infamous New World Order agenda-pusher by the name of Benjamin Netanyahu, the current Prime Minister of Israel. The War on Terror has become such a hackneyed phrase that its worthy of being trademarked and corporatized, if the Military Industrial Complex hasnt done so already. Think of how much carnage, death and destruction have been wrought in the name of fighting the War on Terror and its various offshoots such as Radical Islamic Terrorism  millions of people killed in Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Pakistan, Yemen, Syria, Palestine and more  and theres no sign of it stopping. The War on Terror is the ultimate abstract endless war against a nebulous faceless enemy. Its not going to stop until enough people see through the deception.

Meet Benjamin Netanyahu, Inventor of the War on Terror

Netanyahu is more than just an Israeli politician. Netanyahus father, Benzion Netanyahu, was a leader of Revisionist Zionism, a colonialist, aggressive, xenophobic and expansionist form of Israeli nationalism founded by Zeev Jabotinsky in the early part of the 20th century. Netanyahu was already talking about terrorism in 1979 when he wrote his book International Terrorism: Challenge and Response that year. He wrote another book on terrorism in 1995, a major work entitled Fighting Terrorism: How Democracies Can Defeat Domestic and International...

Vanuatu prepares to evacuate 5000 as Ambae volcanic eruption intensifies "IndyWatch Feed World"

Authorities in Vanuatu were preparing to evacuate as many as 5000 people on Saturday, as a volcanic eruption on Ambae island continued to intensify. The country's Geohazards Department on Saturday raised its alert from level three to four, what it classified as a "moderate eruption state." The volcano is one of the most active in the world, but its activity has steadily increased in the past couple of weeks, said Esline Garaeviti, the manager of the Geohazards Department. On Saturday, that increased further, with the volcano belching ash across much of the 400sqkm island. "In the early hours, around 3-4am, we noticed that the activity started to increase, followed by another eruptive phase," said Ms Garaeviti. "So the ash plume from Ambae is still there now. The ash fall is expected all around the island." "The increased level of activity means increased area of risk," she said. "There's more risk exposed to people on the island, that's why. It's a moderate state of activity." Ms Garaeviti stressed that the state of the eruption was only moderate, but there was every chance it could increase. However, authorities on the island, which sits between Santo and Pentecost about halfway up the archipelago, were swinging into action on Saturday. Shadrack Welegtabit, the director of the Vanuatu National Disaster Management Office, said his officials weren't taking chances, and were preparing to start evacuating half of the island's 10,000 people from one side to the other.

Syrians lament cost of US bombing: 'Raqqa was a beautiful city, now it's completely destroyed' "IndyWatch Feed World"

US-led coalition airstrikes on Raqqa, an Islamic State stronghold in Syria, have claimed many civilian lives and forced tens of thousands to flee. RT's Ruptly agency spoke to the displaced locals who described how the city was leveled in front of their eyes. The ancient city of Raqqa, which has recently become known as the de-facto capital of Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) terrorists in Syria, is currently under siege by the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), a Kurdish-led militia backed by the US-led coalition. The besieged city has come under heavy air bombardment while civilians have been trapped in IS-occupied neighborhoods, unable to escape. The SDF on Wednesday said that "80 percent" of Raqqa has been retaken from IS and that the operation has moved into the final phase. At the same time, some SDF forces were seen being transferred away from the battlefield to the northern areas of the Deir ez-Zor province, according to the Russian Defense Ministry. The dislocation comes as the Syrian armed forces backed by Russian Air Force have been pushing out IS terrorists after liftking the siege of the city of Deir ez-Zor. People in the Al-Mabrookeh refugee camp told Ruptly of the terrors they faced being caught in the middle of the fighting between IS terrorists and the US-backed SDF. "The coalition launched heavy airstrikes over the residential areas and the nearby towns in the western and northern sectors, especially northward, where they targeted ISIS headquarters, and also locations where civilians were killed," Ahmad Ibrahim told Ruptly. "Schools, where students were studying, have been targeted as well. There was nothing there, and they have just been hit and destroyed,"he said.

Adorable Chimpanzee Is Learning To Trust Again, And The Photos Are Too Cute "IndyWatch Feed World"

By Amanda Froelich Truth Theory

This 10-month-old chimpanzee hasnt had the easiest start in life. Though he is now cared for by kind caregivers, Farah once lived in chains after being seized by wildlife traffickers who killed his mother.

Sadly, his story is not unusual. Every year, millions of helpless animals are orphaned as a result of poaching or human negligence. In fact, the illegal industry generates a profit of five to 20 million dollars annually. Even if the trade does result in species going extinct, many poachers do not care as it is profitable short-term.

Fortunately, Farah is now living a good live at Mefou Sanctauary, Ape Africas safe haven which is located in Cameroon, Africa. The non-profit is focused on the conservation of chimpanzees, monkeys and gorillas.

When Farah first arrived at the sanctuary, he was distrustful of humans and shied away from the strange sights and sounds. The patent caretakers eventually earned his trust, however. Now, hes realizing humans arent all that bad.

In the photo below, Farah curiously looks at his caregiver, Stephanie.

A peer-reviewed study conducted by scientists at the University of British Columbia, has established a link between a popular aluminum vaccine and autism. It is no question that the subject of vaccines is profoundly controversial. On both sides of the argument exists truth and lies that can hinder the ability of some to make rational decisions. While we have everyone from attorneys to biologists, to political scientists who write for the Free Thought Project, none of us are doctors, so we do not make recommendations about what you and your family should do in regards to vaccination. That being said, when we see critical information about vaccines that fails to be covered in the mainstream media, we will cover it every time. This is one of those times.

GRENFELL INFERNO! unprecedented trauma

THE GRENFELL Tower disaster triggered a mental health crisis of an unprecedented scale, a leading doctor has said 100 days on from the fire.

NHS data shows 457 adults have been flagged as being in urgent need of treatment for post-traumatic stress disorder, while 39 children are also receiving specialist mental health care.

Survivors and nearby witnesses of the June 14 inferno, which left so many dead, are considered to have a 50% chance of developing the disorder, according to health service modelling. Those mentally scarred by the tragedy report suffering from flashbacks and sleeplessness, which can be triggered by the sight of the towers wreckage, clinicians say.

Dr Alastair Bailey, the clinical psychological lead at the NHS Grenfell Tower Trauma Service, said the impact of the fire is unlike anything seen before by the health service. He said: It is unprecedented, I dont think we have experienced anything like it. We had similar events that have been large-scale, traumatic events that have occurred in the UK.

We think about the London bombings, the terror attack in Tunisia which affected British nationals and other events...

Rare oarfish washes up in Oak Bay, British Columbia "IndyWatch Feed World"

A strange sea creature that washed up on Oak Bay's Rattenbury Beach late Thursday morning has been identified as a very rare king-of-the-salmon, according to a local biologist. The unique name of the king-of-the-salmon originates from Makah First Nation legend, in which the fish (Trachiptreus altivelis) was believed to be the "king" that would lead salmon back to their rivers to spawn, noted Jackie Hildering, a biologist and marine educator, who goes by the handle of The Marine Detective on her blog. The strange-looking fish, at more than two metres long, was found deceased beside the water by a man who was walking on the beach with his dog.

Fearless Dog Who Saved 52 People Is Rescuing Victims Of Mexico Earthquake "IndyWatch Feed World"

By Amanda Froelich Truth Theory

Last Tuesday, a magnitude 7.1 earthquake rocked central Mexico. At least 230 people were killed and thousands were injured. The terrifying incident took place just two weeks after another, more powerful earthquake shook up Oaxaca.

This latest natural disaster left the area in ruins and many people trapped under the rubble. Fortunately, thousands of emergency services, military members and civilians are helping rescue trapped victims. Among them is a six-year-old Mexican Navy (SEMAR) rescue dog who has saved 52 people in her career.

Frida the Labrador has been tirelessly searching for survivors. As can be seen in the photos below, she is equipped with her own personal protective equipment which includes customized boots and goggles. The boots protect her paws from abrasive materials and the goggles shield her eyes from debris.

Despite the double tragedy Mexico has experienced, its heartening to know activists like Frida are nearby and willing to help out.

Not learning from past mistakes: Zuckerberg rehires 'Gang of Eight' pollsters to garner support for 2017 DACA amnesty "IndyWatch Feed World"

Mark Zuckerberg's deputies have rehired the pollsters behind the 2014 "Gang of Eight" electoral disaster to help persuade politicians that support for the 2017 DACA amnesty will not be a career-ending decision. The pollsters' "optimized messaging" advice proved catastrophic to many politicians in 2014, including five defeated Democratic Senators plus the GOP's House Majority Leader, Rep. Eric Cantor, who lost his Virginia primary. The amnesty-boosting advice was also catastrophic for Sen. Marco Rubio, and for Sen. Chuck Schumer, who lost the five Democrats and four more open seats held by retiring Democrats. That loss of nine seats cost Schumer the opportunity to be the Senate's Majority leader for President Barack Obama's last two years and President Donald Trump's first two years. Because of the 2014 amnesty fiasco, many politicians - and a New York real-estate developer - realized that most Americans want to like immigrants but they also strongly oppose big uncontrolled amnesties which allow companies to unfairly hire cheap labor and to sideline Americans and their growing children. Pollster Kellyanne Conway recognized the combination of decency and anger, and she used that knowledge to help Donald Trump bulldoze the GOP and Democratic establishments in 2016. This year, the pollsters have only persuaded credulous liberal reporters who are eager to believe that Americans welcome more crime and civic conflict, lower wages, fewer college slots, and fewer taxpayer dollars.

Congratulations World, Sea Turtles Are Officially Making a Comeback From the Brink of Extinction "IndyWatch Feed World"

Humans have caused a lot of destruction to Earth and mother nature itself. It isnt often that we clean up the messes weve caused, however, weve done well this time!

Because of our rapid industrialization, deforestation, and other external forces brought upon nature by humanity has caused a tremendous effect on the environment. There has been a variety of different species that are near being wiped out completely from the planet. Polar bears, Bengal tigers, and even bees are all nearing complete extinction as modern society continues to grow. Sea turtles were one of the most upsetting components of the list, however, because of conservation foundations and the good will of the people they are returning from the brink of extinction!

Scientists have found that the population levels of the large sea turtles have been improving when they looked at nearly 60 different regions across the Earth. According to experts, long life sea turtles have been pushed to endangering levels because of hunting, fishing nets, habitat loss, plastic o rings, pollution, and climate change. However, there have been massive amounts of effort put into preserving and protecting baby sea turtle eggs and the turtles themselves.

Theres a positive sign at the end of the story, Mazaris said. We should be more optimistic about our efforts in society. said study lead author Antonios Mazaris, an ecology professor at Aristotle University of Thessaloniki in Greece.

There are a variety of different sea turtle species that have been at risk. In fact, there are only seven different types of sea turtles all of whom are at risk besides one. They can live for several decades and weight over 1,000 pounds!

They have more turtles than they know what to do with, said Roderic Mast, a sea turtle advisory group co-chairman at the International Union for Conservation of Nature, which determines the global list of endangered species. After looking at 299 sets of turtle populations over different lengths of time all over the globe. The researchers found that 95 of them were increased, but 35 were still down.

Catalonia Closes Ranks As Outrage Over Crackdown Grows "IndyWatch Feed World"

Spains increasingly public crackdown on the planned October 1 secession referendum in Catalonia appears to be bringing the population of the northeastern region together. Reports say that the social indignation toward police action is spreading far from just the pro-secession crowd.

Spains Constitutional Court forbade the referendum, and national police have been out in growing force trying to undermine the lead-up to the vote. Still, theres little sign theyre going to be able to prevent the vote outright, and mostly theyre just angering everybody in the region.

If anything, theres some speculation that Spains crackdown is likely to sway the outcome more in favor of secession, as the pro-secession crowd is more mobilized than ever, and resentment is soaring. Polls had previously shown Catalonia widely split on the issue.

With 10 days left to the vote, theres a lot of time for the situation to continue to escalate, with thousands of Catalan demonstrators in the streets, and thousands more police arriving on ferries in Barcelona.

Leaders of the region say the referendum will take place irrespective of moves against them. In the meantime, however, talk of a general strike is mounting, and prosecutors are threatening sedition charges for the pro-secession movement.

Crimea is part of Russia, and it must be recognized. This was stated on Friday by the chairman of the Austrian Freedom Party Heinz-Christian Strache on the eve of the elections to the National Council of Austria (lower house of parliament) on October 15. "The Crimea is a real part of Russia, it needs to be accepted." Sanctions on this issue should eventually be canceled.", Strache said in response to a question from the Austrian press agency whether Austria should recognize the reunification of Crimea with Russia and abolish the related sanctions. In turn, the head of the New Austria party, Matthias Stroltz, noted that Austria can not yet acknowledge the fact of reunification. "But we need to agree that the Crimea will never return to Ukraine, and cancellation of the sanctions can follow Russia's clear steps towards democracy, freedom of speech, respect for human rights. Without this, sanctions can not be lifted, " Stroltz said. At the same time, Chancellor of Austria Christian Kern and Foreign Minister Sebastian Kurtz still believe that "the annexation of Crimea violates international law." "But the sanctions did not lead to an improvement in the situation in Ukraine," Kern added.

Each weeknight, The Free Store redistributes up to 1,500 surplus food items to anyone who wants themno questions asked.

On a windy late afternoon, dozens of people have lined up in front of a 20-foot-long repurposed shipping container situated on a church parking lot. Inside, volunteers are unloading food items from custom-built shopping carts and stacking them onto rows of shelves. There are hearty rice meals and healthy salads, thick sandwiches, pies, and other savory and sweet items. This is just another busy day for The Free Store.

We saw the potential in an untapped food supply.

The Free Store is a nonprofit organization that redistributes surplus food from local businesses in New Zealands capital city, Wellington, to those in need. It was inspired by a two-week art project in 2010 where artist Kim Paton filled a shop with surplus food items from bakeries and supermarkets.

The Health Benefits of Sleeping Naked | man-asleep | General Health Special Interests

Insomnia is a bigger issue in the United States than most people think. More than a third of all American adults arent getting enough sleep. Thats enough to be considered an epidemic. Sleeplessness doesnt just make you yawn; it has a significant effect on obesity, diabetes, blood circulation, muscle health, heart health, the immune system, and cognitive behavior.[1]

Because of our sleep crisis, more people than ever before have resorted to sleeping pills. In 2015, Americans spent an estimated $41 billion on sleep aids. A 2013 study concluded that nearly nine million Americans use sleeping pills, and that figure continues to rise.[2] This is cause for concern as sleep aids can have severe health consequences. They may lead to dependence, addiction, and a number of negative side effects.[34] Fortunately, theres an all natural (and au naturale) trick you can try to sleep better tonight.

Simply sleeping naked has a host of health benefits including better sleep, balanced mood, better sex life, weight loss, and sexual health for both men and women.

Trump Looking To Expand Drone Strikes Outside Conventional Warzones "IndyWatch Feed World"

US President Donald Trump is seeking to loosen some Obama-era limits on drone attacks and ground raids outside conventional warzones US media reports have said.

The New York Times, citing unnamed officials, reported on Thursday that Trumps top national security advisers have proposed relaxing two rules from the administration of Barack Obama, the former US president.

The officials said the targets of kill missions by the military and the CIA would be expanded to include foot-soldier fighters with no special skills or leadership roles.

The officials added that proposed drone attacks and raids would no longer undergo high-level vetting.

The New York Times report comes after NBC News published a story on Monday about the Trump administration contemplating policy changes that will further expand the CIAs authority to conduct drone raids in a number of countries, both in and out of warzones.

NBC News cited officials at intelligence agencies, the Pentagon, Congress and the White House, who all requested anonymity to discuss the classified programme.

The international human rights organization Reprieve has found that since Trump took office in January this year, at least 30 civilians have been killed in ground raids and drone attacks in Yemen, where the US is not formally at war. That number includes women and children.

On 18 September, German Public Broadcaster ZDF showed an interview by Peter Hahne. It posited the idea that Germany has been living in fear for quite some time and asks the questions: "Is that right? Are we Germans fearful in our own country for violence, terrorism and war? Or is this mood promoted, exaggerated by the media? What is the truth about 'German angst'?" On the ZDF website, the interview is introduced by noting increased crime in German cities, the growth in the number of terrorist attacks in Europe, assaults by immigrants against unreproachable citizens, the threat of climate change. So, the program asks, what is happening in the world, in Europe, in Germany? Is it really all that dangerous? Should we fear? Or is it a conspiracy "to make people live in fear and coerce them into a certain direction? What to make of the emotional state of the Germans? Is the fear genuine, or constructed? Can it be fought with arguments, proof and 'fact-checks'? These are the questions Peter Hahne discussed with his guests.

Calling Kaepernick Son Of A Bitch, Trump Urges NFL To Fire All Protesting Players "IndyWatch Feed World"

Civil libertarians, racial justice advocates, and NFL players from across the league expressed outrage overnight after President Donald Trump called on owners of professional football teams to fire players who express their political views.

In a veiled reference to quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who last season started a wave of protest by kneeling during pre-game National Anthems in protest of police killings of unarmed black men, Trump said during a campaign-style rally in Alabama on Friday night, Wouldnt you love to see one of the NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to say Get that son of a bitch off the field right now?'

Bishop Sankey, running back for the Minnesota Vikings who called the presidents behavior a disgrace, was among the many players in the league who condemned the president for his comments.

Kaepernick remains unsigned to a team this season and though Trump did not mention him specifically by name the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback has remained a key target among right-wingers who express the opinion that black athletes should keep quiet about their political opinions.

Study asks if people with wide faces have a higher sex drive than those with narrow faces "IndyWatch Feed World"

New research published in the journal Archives of Sexual Behavior suggests that the size and shape of your face may predict your sex drive and how likely you are to cheat on your partner. Recently, behavioral and psychological researchers have taken an interest in facial morphology - that is, how the shape of the human face may correlate with certain attitudes, behaviors, and personality traits. For example, some studies have suggested that in men, a high facial width-to-height ratio (FWHR) may signal aggressiveness, unethical behavior, and even psychopathy. New research - led by Steven Arnocky, of Nipissing University in Ontario, Canada - examines the role of men and women's FWHR in sexual relationships, infidelity, and mate selection.

Unintended consequences & ugly repercussions: Catalonia situation deteriorating "IndyWatch Feed World"

This does not look like it will end well. Spain will deploy police reinforcements to the northeastern region of Catalonia to maintain order and take action if a referendum on independence pledged by the Catalan government but deemed illegal by Spain should take place, officials said Friday. AP reports that an Interior Ministry statement said the extra agents would provide backing for the Catalan regional police who are also under orders to prevent the staging of the referendum. But protests continue to grow and Rajoy's actions only seem to solidify opposition... "I feel the way people used to feel during Franco regime. Nothing less. Because Francoism is still alive," said protester Josep Selva, referring to Gen. Francisco Franco's military regime that ruled Spain between 1939 and 1978, three years after his death. "The political reform of 1978 only legalized Francoism and disguised it as democracy," he said. But, as WolfStreet.com's Don Quijones points out Madrid's crackdown on Catalonia is already having one major consequence, presumably unintended: many Catalans who were until recently staunchly opposed to the idea of national independence are now reconsidering their options.

On Tuesday, Russian President Vladimir Putin at a press conference after the BRICS Summit in China said he would instruct the Foreign Ministry to go to court after the US State Department seized three Russian diplomatic facilities in retaliation for Moscow's decision to cut US diplomatic staff in Russia. Russian diplomats left the Consulate General in San Francisco and two other diplomatic entities in New York City and Washington on Saturday, while US security agents entered the premises and conducted a search, which Moscow said violated the Vienna Convention.

ADA Untroubled By Yet Another Study Pointing To Fluorides Negative Health Impacts "IndyWatch Feed World"

For decades, many groups have fought against the inclusion of fluoride in publicly supplied water, arguing that the risks of mass fluoride consumption outweigh the purported benefits. Now, a new study published in Environmental Health Perspectives has added to the scientific literature that suggests that fluoride negatively impacts human intelligence, especially in children and infants.

The study, surprisingly, was widely reported in the U.S. mainstream media despite the fact that its findings contradict the governments official position regarding the safety of fluoride.

The study examined nearly 300 sets of mothers and children living in Mexico and tested the childrens cognitive development twice over a 12 year period. A drop in scores on intelligence tests was observed for every 0.5 milligram-per-liter increase in fluoride exposure beyond 0.8 milligrams per liter found in maternal urine. While researchers found a potential connection to prenatal fluoride exposure, they found no significant influence of fluoride exposure on brain development once a child was born.

While the study is likely to cause concern for mothers-to-be around the world, the findings of this study will be of particular concern for those living in areas where public water is fluoridated. In Mexico, where the study was conducted, fluoride is not added to public water supplies and fluoride exposure largely occurs via naturally occurring fluoride in the environment, fluoridated salt and supplements. In contrast, three-quarters of the U.S. population is exposed to fluoride through public water, in addition to other sources of fluoride such as fluoridated toothpaste.

FluorideHowever, the American Dental Association (ADA) took issue with the study, stating, its findings are not applicable to the U.S. The ADA continues to endorse fluoridation of public water as the most effective public health measure to prevent tooth decay. The ADA declined to state why the studys findings were not applicable to pregnant women in the United States, given that fluoride co...
