Yoda: Could Northern Mexico Be Ready to Split from Mexico? "IndyWatch Feed World"

Phi Beta Iota: There are weak signals that suggest a small possibility that US military forces might cross the border into Mexico, and with the support of the Mexican provincial leaders and public seeking to separate from Mexico, create a new zone of control for stopping human trafficking, drug smuggling, and illegal immigration. Those that posit and oil capture goal need to look at the below map while Northern Mexico has gas, the oil is in the south. The second link below is from a known fabricator (Sorcha Faal) with a gift for connecting legitimate links with a provocative narrative. It merits comment that China is becoming very aggressive in Central and South America. While the US will be tempted to use the only tool it has now (the military), a wiser course would be to develop new tools including fair trade rooted in holistic analytics and true cost economics.  Robert Steeles long-recommended strategy for US global priorities is shown at the end of this post.

FBI Tried to Entrap Trump, 2288 "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

This is a paid sponsorship by: - Trade Genius Academy: Learn the safe, sure way to trade. https://www.TradeGeniusAcademy.com Good morning, Im still reporting on: FBI Tried to Entrap Trump, 2288 Synopsis: Another case of nefarious deeds against the Trump campaign by the FBI came to light yesterday. However, this was not a spy. Stunningly, this was an attempted entrapment sprung by a man who it turns out, was an FBI informant. The FBI entrapper was a man by the name of Henry Greenberg who had worked for the FBI for 17 years. In May of 2016, he contacted Trump friend, Roger Stone, and offered to sell him dirt on Hillary Clinton that he claimed was being offered from the Russian government for $5 million. Stone, in a text, quickly dismissed the attempted entrapment by texting Greenberg that Trump never pays for political dirt. Tucker picks up the story from last night interviewing former Asst. U.S. Attorney, Andrew McCarthy. Support Our Sponsors: - Virtual Shield VPN - the easiest way to create a home VPN.

What Will Make People Decide Who To Vote For In November? "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"


There are a bunch of run-of the-mill Democrats and semi-Democrats running in Michigan this year, including for the district in the southwest corner of the state (MI-06) held by Fred Upton. One-- sleazy lobbyist George Franklin-- is especially bad. He's been helping finance Upton against Democrats for years. And now he wants to run against him. What a joke! I can see the GOP ads now: "I was for him before I was against him." And he was. Why? What changed, Georgie?

Upton is real bad but but Franklin is-- at best-- the lesser of two evils. The best Democrat in the race is Paul Clements. This week he told his supporters that "despite hearing that we're in a prolonged economic recovery, over half of all Americans are economically insecure-- unable to maintain long-term savings, fearful of emergencies they can't afford, unable to relax even a little. Whether you're below or above the poverty line, economic insecurity is unhealthy, exhausting, and bad for our democracy. You can read my entire economic agenda here, but I want to focus on three things I will do in Congress to reduce economic insecurity in America.
1. Medicare for All

Canada's health care system has not only produced longer life expectancy and lower infant mortality than the United States; Canadians also know they won't go broke if they get sick. In Congress, I will push for, support, and vote for Medicare for all.

2. Increased Wages

First, here is a selection of Sperrys tweets on Friday: Sperry 1 IG Horowitz testifies material implicating Lynch in possible obstruction of Hillary email case is contained in classified section of his report and that he will work with Congress to declassify it. Here is the possible smoking gun: Sp 2 IG Horowitz confirms his staff did not recover all of Strzok's or Page's text messages from the December 15, 2016 - May 17, 2017 "gap" period when FBI suffered mysterious archiving "glitch" ... As Ive proven in these reports time after time, large organizations, and all agencies of the government, can never lose emails or text messages. They are required by law to preserve them and as a result, there are backups of backups on servers, then there are old-fashioned tape backups that are picked up weekly by the armored vehicles of big preserving firms such as Iron Mountain. Therefore, there was no mysterious glitch. This is an outright lie. Now turning to the last 24 hours: Sperry 3 IG Horowitz revealed in Senate testimony FBI never named a target or even subject in Clinton probe. Not Mills, Abedin, Combetta or Clinton herself. "Nobody was listed as a subject of this investigation at any point in time," adding this was "surprising" for a crim probe Thats correct, there was never an actual investigation of Clintons mishandling of thousands of highly classified emails.

US Supreme Court rules police need warrant for cell phone location data "IndyWatch Feed World"

The US Supreme Court has ruled in favor of a defendant challenging the government's use of his cellphone location information without a warrant. Timothy Carpenter was sentenced to 116 years in prison after being found guilty in 2013 of planning a number of armed robberies across the American Midwest. Police used his cellphone records to link him to the crimes but Carpenter argued at his trial that the records were inadmissible as they had been obtained without a legal writ. His argument was rejected by the initial trial court and at the court of appeal, before the case was brought before the Supreme Court in November 2017. Carpenter was represented in the case by the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU). The court ruled 5-4 in favor of Carpenter, saying that police need a court-approved warrant to access a citizen's private data. Taking data from service providers without a warrant amounts to unreasonable search and seizure under the Fourth Amendment in the US Constitution, the court said.

Seattles Ban On Plastic Straws, Utensils Begins July 1 "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

by Lorraine Chow via Eco Watch  

Starting next month, Seattle eateries will no longer provide plastic straws, utensils and cocktail picks to customers.

As of July 1, 2018, food services businesses should not be providing plastic straws or utensils, Sego Jackson, the strategic advisor for Waste Prevention and Product Stewardship for Seattle Public Utilities told Q13 FOX. What they should be providing are compostable straws or compostable utensils. But they also might be providing durables, reusables, or encouraging you to skip the straw altogether.

There are roughly 5,000 eateries in the city, meaning the new ordinance could potentially make a big impact. Lonely Whales Strawless in Seattle campaign in September eliminated 2.3 million plastic strawsand that was just from 150 participating restaurants and venues in that month alone, EcoWatch has learned.

Gareth Porter: Deep State Coalition Forms Against Trump on Korea Denuclearization "IndyWatch Feed War"

Gareth Porter

An Elite Coalition Emerges Against a Trump-Kim Agreement

Media coverage of the Trump-Kim summit has highlighted a political reaction that threatens to torpedo any possible U.S-North Korean agreement on denuclearization of the Korean peninsula, says Gareth Porter.

The real concern of the opposition to Trumps diplomacy, therefore, is no longer that he cannot succeed in getting an agreement with Kim on denuclearization but that he will succeed.

Read full article.

Phi Beta Iota: Not stated in the article an important oversight is the frantic mobilization of all Zionist penetrations of the US Government, economy, and media to oppose the denuclearization of  the Koreas. The Zionists are seeing the writing on the wall: not only is the second  Trump term going to eliminate the pernicious subversive grip of Zionists on members of Congress (too many having Israeli passports and being blackmailed by Jeffrey Epstein) but it has been made clear that after the denuclearization of Korea comes the denuclearization of Israel.  Praise be to God.

Canadian Grocery Store Allows You To Pay What You Can For Bruised Or Expired Food "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

By Amanda Froelich Truth Theory

Planet Earth is plagued by many problems. However, one of the most severe may be food waste. Even though we, as a species, cultivate enough food to feed 10 billion people, approximately 795 million individuals still go to bed hungry each evening.


What are we doing wrong? There are a few answers to this question. To start, people have gotten into the habit of putting profit before others. An unfair distribution of resources paired with greed has contributed to the phenomena known as lack. Secondly, citizens have been taught to believe that if a food item looks anything but perfect, it is no longer edible. 
The misguided public also believes that as soon as a food reaches its expiration date, it must be tossed into the landfill or composted. In reality, most items retain a shelf life of several more weeks.

All three are contributing to world hunger, which is why each of us must take action in our own lives to reduce food waste. A novel grocery store in Toronto, Canada, is taking action by selling expired or bruised food at a very discounted rate. In some cases, it is free to those who are in need.

Immigrant Children Forcibly Injected With Psychotropic Drugs Under Obama & TrumpLawsuit "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

A lawsuit claims that immigrant children have been separated from their parents and forcibly injected with powerful psychiatric drugs since at least 2013.

by Jay Syrmopoluos via The Free Thought Project

Houston, TX A federal lawsuit filing on April 23 in an ongoing class-action lawsuit revealed that immigrant children separated from their parentsduring both the Obama and Trump administrationswere allegedly held down and forcibly injected with powerful psychiatric drugs while being held at the Shiloh Treatment Center, a government contractor south of Houston that houses undocumented immigrant minors.

The children, in sworn affidavits, described how they were told the drugs were vitamins, and that they would not be allowed to see their parents or leave the facility unless they complied and took the medications.

One child recalled being forced to take pills, which they were told were vitamins, in the morning, at noon and night, stating: the staff told me that some of the pills are vitamins because they think I need to gain weight. The vitamins changed about two times, and each time I feel different.

An investigation by Reveal, for the Center for Investigative Reporting, found that one child was prescribed 10 different shots and pills including the antipsychotic drugs Latuda, Geodon and Olanzapine, the Parkinsons medication Benztropin, the seizure medications Clonazepam and Divalproex, the nerve pain medication and antid...

Metastatic cancer gorges on fructose in the liver "IndyWatch Feed World"

Biomedical engineers at Duke University have demonstrated that metastatic cancer cells can reprogram their metabolism to thrive in new organs. Specifically, the research shows that cells originating from colorectal cancer change their dietary habits to capitalize on the high levels of fructose often found in the liver. The finding offers both general and specific insights into new ways of fighting metastatic cancer. It appears April 26 in the journal Cell Metabolism. Cancer becomes much more deadly once it spreads to different parts of the body, yet treatments don't take their location into account. "Genetically speaking, colon cancer is colon cancer no matter where it goes," explained Xiling Shen, associate professor of biomedical engineering at Duke. "But that doesn't mean that it can't respond to a new environment. We had a hunch that such a response might not be genetic, but metabolic in nature." In the study, Shen and his colleagues found that certain metabolic genes became more active in liver metastases than they were in the original primary tumor or lung metastases. One group of metabolic genes stood out in particular, those involved in the metabolism of fructose. This struck the researchers because many Western diets are rich in fructose, which is found in corn syrup and all types of processed foods.

FLASHBACK: Just a reminder of how Mexico treats 'undesirable' foreigners "IndyWatch Feed World"

Why isn't what's good for the protection of Mexico good for the U.S.? American politicians in both parties are stampeding all over themselves to pander to Mexico and adopt mass illegal-alien-amnesty schemes. But while the Mexican government lobbies for more "humane" treatment of illegal border-crossers from their country into ours, Mexico remains notoriously restrictionist toward "undesirable" foreigners who break their laws or threaten their security. Despite widely touted immigration "reforms" adopted in 2011, Mexico still puts Mexico first - as any country that is serious about protecting its sovereignty should and would.

Obama v. Trump: How the New York Times Lies About Lies "IndyWatch Feed War"

Eric Zuesse Although the New York Times says that President Donald Trump lies vastly more than did President Barack Obama, the definite liar in that comparison based on the factual record, to be presented here is the New York Times itself. It lies in alleging this, which isnt to say that either President lies more frequently than the other, but instead, that the Timess calculation fails to count, at all, but instead altogether ignores, some of President Obamas very worst lies ones that were real whoppers. These were lies that were essential to his maintaining support among Democrats (such as the owners of this corporation, the NYT, are), and that would keep Democrats support only if they judged him by his words and not by his deeds: failed to judge him by his actual decisions and actions (such as the NYTs owners do or else they secretly know the truth on this, but prevent this truth from being published by their employees).

A MIDI Sequencer To Be Proud Of "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

MIDI sequencers are surprisingly expensive, making them an excellent target for [RH Electronics] who has created a sixteen-step device. It supports up to eight playable parts per step, which can be either MIDI or drum triggers.

The case and front panel are built to a very high standard, and on a piece of stripboard within lies an ATmega644 which does all the MIDI work, an ATmega328 that runs the many LEDs, and an ATtiny85 that reads the front panel buttons. The whole is kept in sync by a timer on the 644 set to produce the required MIDI clock. There is an LCD display too, which carries the status and programming interface.

You can see the result in the video below the break, in which the sequencer is put through its paces alongside a tantalising glimpse of a matching synthesiser. Is this another project, or a commercial device on which Google fails us when we try to find it? Meanwhile this is certainly not the first MIDI sequencer weve brought you here at Hackaday, this Arduino one is another example of several also using Atmel parts.

5 Marketing Opportunities From A Simple T-Shirt "IndyWatch Feed War"

When you are out in public, take a good look at the attire around you. Youll see all kinds of attire, ranging from all forms of pants, shoes, shorts, and accessories. However, there is one piece of clothing that you will almost always catch a glimpse of in a public or private setting. Of course I am referring to the T-shirt.

There are many reasons to love T-shirts, from their casual comfortableness to their fashionable style, but anyone in marketing can understand exactly why they can also be a very useful too. You may find yourself asking exactly why that is. Luckily, in the words below you will find five great reasons as to why T-shirts are an excellent marketing opportunity.

1. Always in Season

When you advertise yourself or your brand on a T-shirt, then you will want to make sure that you get the most exposure possible from it. Fortunately, T-shirts are always appropriate at any time of year. Whether they are under jackets or winter coats, or are the sole protector of the wearer against the harsh summer sun, you can be sure that the T-shirt has a good chance to be used, whether rain, snow, or shine.

2. T-Shirts Stick With You

If you really think about it, a T-shirt can have a pretty interesting and lengthy life. From being bought or made, to the golden days of public wearing, slowly transitioning into something of a work shirt, and possibly even finding itself as an old, faithful sleep shirt.

Theres no telling what kind of life the shirt will have, but you can be sure that whatever message your T-shirt is marketing, it will do it for quite a while, even if it does wind up in someones pajama drawer.

India: Lawmaker Says Killing People in Kashmir is No Achievement "IndyWatch Feed War"

Actually Minister Sahib this tells the story of how your government allowed militancy & violence to re-emerge in J&K forcing the security forces to kill more terrorists, Omar wrote on Twitter.

The former J&K chief minister was reacting to Union minister Ravi Shankar Prasads tweet and statement that more militants were killed under the NDA government than in the UPA rule. Prasad said security forces had killed 72 and 67 militants in 2012 and 2013 under the UPA and the figure rose to 110 in 2014 when the BJP-led NDA came to power at the Centre.

He said the forces killed 108 militants in 2015, 150 in 2016, 217 in 2017 and 75 till May this year.

Omar said the increase in the number of militants killed was not an achievement.

You should be embarrassed by these statistics not be claiming them as some achievement, the NC vice president wrote.

Followthrough and Focus "IndyWatch Feed Europe"



Talking of the Spectator, the BBC's Paul Wood writes occasional articles about Donald Trump for it. His latest piece, What does the British government know about Trump and Russia?, hasn't gone down with the magazine's below-the-line online commentariat. They think it stinks of BBC bias. 

It's certainly a strikingly-written piece where every claim of wrongdoing (whether by Trump, or Arron Banks, or Russia, or the British government) is made to sound credible (sometimes with Paul Wood himself explicitly pronouncing it credible) but carefully caveated with 'some people say'-style get-out clauses. In the end, however, when you stand back from it a bit, it strikes you that not a single actual piece of the described wrongdoing has yet been proven. It's still all smoke and no fire.

And he's also quite capable of misreporting the President. One thing even some critics have conceded is that Donald Trump is following through on his election pledges and getting lots of them up and running. He recognised Jerusalem as Israel's capital and moved the US embassy there. He pulled the US out of the Iran nuclear deal. He withdrew the US from the Paris climate accord. He moved to renegotiate NAFTA. He pulled out of the planned Trans-Pacific Partnership deal. He introduced a travel bans for residents of several Muslim countries. He got tough with China on trade. He talked to Kim Jong-un. He got his tax cuts passed. He got his Supreme Court nominee accepted. He bombed Islamic State into oblivion.  Paul Wood, however, is sticking with the old line:
And Theresa May was the first world leader through the door of the Oval Office to see the new president. But whatever promises she wrung from Trump will depend on a followthrough and focus he has not shown. This is a president who could not get his own healthcare bill past a Republican Congress.
For a President with no follow-though and focus, his actions seem to show a lot of follow-through and focus.

A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the 'Question Time' Studio (Updated) "IndyWatch Feed Europe"




I talked about this afterwards to the lady who vets the audiences [on Question Time]. It's an urban myth that before each show the BBC sends a coach to pick their audience up from the Socialist Worker's Party Social Club, Hizb ut Tahrir and the EU Commission. In fact and I totally believe this they are rigorously screened and pre-selected to reflect the political spectrum.
I am one of the few people who cant really complain about the editorial policy of Question Time having been on it 26 times since I was first elected in 1999. In terms of the coverage it gives Ukip I have found it fair and in the past few years the programme has even started accepting Ukip panellists other than me!
But there have been a couple of programmes in which my colleagues and I have faced a hostile audience which in no way represents how Ukip is normally received or which are representative of the opinion polls. I am not pointing the finger of blame at the QT team but the question I want to ask is whether the Question Time audiences are being exploited by the hard left?

Among those killed by the forces was a high-value target identified as Nanakar, who is said to be involved in the killing of locals.

Two hawaldars, Razzaq Khan and Mumtaz Hussain, were martyred in an exchange of fire that took place during the operation.

According to the ISPR press release, the suspected terrorists had been in contact with a militant network in Afghanistans Paktika province. Weapons, ammunition and communication equipment have been recovered from them.

Deadly blast at Ethiopia rally a well-orchestrated attack, PM says "IndyWatch Feed War"

A deadly explosion struck a huge rally for Ethiopias reformist new prime minister on Saturday shortly after he spoke and was waving to the crowd that had turned out in numbers unseen in recent years in the East African nation.

Addressing the country minutes after he was hurried to safety, Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed said a few people had been killed and others injured. He called the blast a well-orchestrated attack but one that failed. He did not lay blame but said police were investigating. An Associated Press reporter saw more than a dozen injured people.

Yona Tadese, AFP | Ethiopian security forces intervene on Meskel Square in Addis Ababa where a blast killed several people during a rally called by the Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed on June 23.

The attack was cheap and unacceptable, the prime minister said, and added: Love always wins. Killing others is a defeat. To those who tried to divide us, I want to tell you that you have not succeeded.

The explosion in packed Meskel Square in the capital, Addis Ababa, came after weeks of sweeping reforms that had shocked many in Africas second most populous nation after years of anti-government tensions, states of emergency, thousands of arrests and long internet shutdowns.

The 42-year-old Abiy took office in April and quickly announced the release of tens of thousands of prisoners, the opening of state-owned companies to private investment and the unconditional embrace of a peace deal with rival Eritrea. Websites were unblocked and opposition figures were invited to dinner. Ethiopians said they could hardly keep up with the pace of change.

Saturdays rally began as a show of exuberance, with supporters wearing clothes displaying Abiys image and carrying signs saying One Love, One Ethiopia.

In a cowboy hat and T-shirt, Abiy told the tens of thousands of supporters that change was coming and there was no turning back.

For the past 100 years hate has done a great deal of damage to us, he said, stressing the need for even more reforms.

After the explosion the state broadcaster quickly cut away from coverage of the rally, which broke up with people singing, chanting and going back to their homes.

Trumps U-Turn on Family Separation "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

Caving to sustained uproar from activists and politicians worldwide, President Donald Trump signed an executive order Wednesday to end the separation of children and parents who illegally traverse the US-Mexico border. Far from an act of mercy, though, this corrective mainly serves to keep intact a morally indefensible policy.

It is, in fact, the first time Trump has backtracked on an incendiary, legally-contested measure to combat illegal immigration, one of the signature issues of his 2016 presidential campaign. Buoyed by GOP hardliners, he made significant strides on the immigration front in his first year in office, passing a travel ban targeting people from Muslim-majority countries and repealing the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program (DACA), which shielded from deportation a million undocumented minors.

Then in April, Attorney General Jeff Sessions rolled out a zero-tolerance policy toward unauthorized border-crossings. Under the policy, border patrol agents will criminally prosecute every adult who illegally walks into the US from Mexico.

However, a 1997 court order, called the Flores agreement, forbids immigration officials from holding minors for longer than 20 days. This limitation ripped families apart: Parents must remain in detention as long as their cases are deliberated, but Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents are obligated to immediately release children to the care of relatives or a licensed program. (The Justice Department is seeking to change the law so that ICE can gain indefinite custody of alien families.)

While detained parents awaited criminal proceedings in jail, children were placed in Border Patrol facilities or foster homes. Photos of children kept in cages went viral last weekend, fueling a wave of public backlash that pressured Trump to release the executive order, which requires families to be detai...

Kadyrov warns enemies of Russia: 'Don't repeat Hitler's mistake' "IndyWatch Feed World"

The head of the Chechen Republic has called upon foreign nations to not repeat Hitler's mistake and to avoid antagonizing Russia without learning the history of failed attempts to conquer it. Ramzan Kadyrov issued the warning through his Telegram Messenger blog on Friday as Russia marked the Day of Memory and Grief - the anniversary of the Nazi Germany's 1941 attack on Soviet Union which started the Great Patriotic War. Hitler planned to have Russia on its knees within months and have a military parade on Red Square, but he was wrong when he thought that his main task was to reach Moscow, Kadyrov wrote. "It is true that in times of the war the German divisions directly approached Moscow, Leningrad and Stalingrad. But Hitler didn't speak Russian and he did not know the Russian history. Otherwise he would have given a second thought to taking the road that had been previously chosen by the French, the Swedes, the Poles and others and ending his life in the same disgraceful way as all these aggressors," he stated.

U.S. President Donald Trump contradicted himself Friday, announcing via an executive order that North Korea continues to pose an unusual and extraordinary threat to the United States a statement that comes less than a week after he triumphantly declared that the Norths nuclear weapons were no longer a problem.

In the executive order, the president extended for one year the so-called national emergency with respect to the nuclear-armed North, reauthorizing economic restrictions against the country.

Although expected, the declaration made following his historic summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in Singapore comes just nine days after Trump tweeted, There is no longer a Nuclear Threat from North Korea.

The national emergency, which has been renewed by every president since it was put in place in June 2008 during the George W. Bush administration, highlights the continued tensions between the two nations, despite disputed claims by Trump that the conflict has been resolved.

It states that the existence and risk of proliferation of weapons-usable fissile material and the actions and policies of the North Korean government continue to pose an unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security, foreign policy, and economy of the United States.

Tensions with Pyongyang have stoked fears of conflict, spiking last year as the North tested missiles that experts believe are capable of striking most of the continental United States and could be tipped with nuclear warheads. Those fears eased this year as the North embarked on a charm offensive, meeting with South Korean and Chinese leaders, and culminating in the June 12 summit in Singapore the first meeting between sitting leaders from the U.S. and North Korea.

In a vaguely worded joint statement from the summit, Kim agreed to work towards the complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula, among other lofty goals, leaving much of the details to be handled in follow-...

Residents of China's southern city of Yulin defended eating dog meat to celebrate the summer solstice on Thursday, as animal rights activists seek new ways to pressure organizers to cancel the annual festival. The ten-day event, dubbed the lychee and dog meat festival by residents, has become a lightning rod for dog lovers, who every year confront those who buy, sell and eat canines. In recent years, animal rights activists have raided slaughterhouses and intercepted truckloads of dogs in efforts to limit the number of animals killed.

Noam Chomsky: Democrats' obsession with Russiagate will allow 'Republican wrecking ball' to tear apart the US "IndyWatch Feed World"

The Democrats' infatuation with Russiagate - while ignoring the Republican "wrecking ball" destroying US society - illustrates the blindness of the party's elite, renowned linguist and political thinker Noam Chomsky has said. Noting that the Democratic Party is "bent on revenge for their 2016 failure," Chomsky told Truthout in an interview that "the bankruptcy of the Democrat elite is well-illustrated by the obsession with alleged Russian meddling with our sacred elections" - adding that allegations of Moscow's meddling had amounted to "apparently very little." He also dismissed European paranoia about nefarious Russian influence in their elections, noting how it was absurd to accuse Moscow of playing a part in parliamentary gains made by right-wing Alternative for Germany (AfD) during the 2017 German elections. Comment: Boogeyman prepared: Germany concerned with Russian 'meddling' in upcoming election "It turns out that there was indeed foreign meddling, but not from Russia," Chomsky said. "AfD hired a Texas media firm [Harris Media] known for support of right-wing nationalist candidates [Donald Trump, Marine Le Pen, Benjamin Netanyahu]. The firm enlisted the cooperation of the Berlin office of Facebook, which provided it with detailed information about potential voters for use in microtargeting those who might be receptive to AfD's message."

A teen in Land O'Lakes, Florida, experienced what his mom said was "the worst pain he ever felt" after coming in contact with a venomous caterpillar. Fifteen-year-old Logan Pergola was doing volunteer landscaping work with his family on Saturday. His mom, Andrea Pergola, said Logan was picking up tree branches when his arm brushed up against the caterpillar. It wasn't the kind of harmless little bug that kids find on playgrounds; it was a southern flannel moth caterpillar, and it was dangerous. "He instantly felt a sharp, stinging pain and his arm went numb. Within 5 minutes he was dizzy, had lost color, was complaining of the worst pain he had ever felt & his eyes weren't super focused," Pergola wrote about her son on Facebook.

Jared Kushners Grandmother Bemoaned the Closed Doors That Faced Refugees to America "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

Way before Jared Kushner became internationally famous by moving into the White House to work for his father-in-law Donald Trump, those of us who live in New Jersey knew the family was an amazing story of immigrant success.

Jared Kushners paternal grandparents, Holocaust survivors Joseph and Rae Kushner, came to the United States in 1949 as impoverished Eastern European refugees and begat a family whose office buildings, apartment complexes and philanthropic efforts are important parts of the business and social landscapes in New Jersey and elsewhere.

Yes, there are scandals and feuds besetting parts of the family, and Jareds father Charles racked up some prison time. But the familys rise from refugees to titans is an example of what can happen when people are admitted into this country, work hard and prosper.

I got curious about the Kushner history after Jared invoked his immigrant forbears in his recent speech at the new U.S. Embassy in Jerusalem. I keep a photo of them on my desk in the White House, he said.

As a grandson of Jewish Eastern European immigrants myself my late father and Kushners late grandmother even had the same birth name, Slonimsky, but spelled it differently I was impressed that Kushner remembers his roots and discusses his origins publicly.

But I wondered how or if Kushner could reconcile his father-in-laws keep em out immigration philosophy with the story of his paternal grandparents, who spent 3 1/2 years in a displaced persons camp in Italy before being admitted to the U.S. In a 1982 interview given by the late Rae Kushner to a Holocaust research center, Jareds grandmother talks about how wrong she felt it was for the U.S. to let people like her and her husband languish in displaced persons camps for years awaiting permission to enter the country.

I was especially taken by this portion: The day after we got married [in Budapest, Hungary], we smuggled ourselves over the border into Italy, Rae Kushner said. This was our honeymoon. In Italy, we sat in a displaced persons camp. It was like being in the ghetto again. Nobody wanted to take us in. So for 3 1/2 years we waited until we finally got a visa to come to the United States.

Later on, she says that, For the Jews, the doors were closed. We never understood that. Even President Roosevelt kept the doors closed. Why?

"In the year 6 AD, the Roman emperor Augustus set up a special trust fund known as the aerarium militare, or military treasury, to fund retirement pensions for Romes legionnaires. Now, these military pensions had already existed for several centuries in Rome. But the money to pay them had always been mixed together in the governments general treasury. So for hundreds of years, mischievous senators could easily grab money that was earmarked for military pensions and redirect it elsewhere.

Without adept management, adversarial relations can become the new normal in a way that serves neither sides national interest.

DEEPLY HELD FOCUS ON TRADE DEFECITS

US President Donald Trump threatened on Monday (Jun 18) to hit US$200 billion of Chinese imports with 10 per cent tariffs if China retaliates against his previous targeting of US$50 billion in imports.

Some have asked, is the US bluffing? No, the Trump administrations policy toward China reflects one of two key themes President Donald Trump has been addressing in his public life for decades: Trade and immigration.

His focus on trade deficits is deeply held and illustrates his worldview of winners and losers in global competition.

He followed through on his self-imposed deadline of Jun 15 for announcement of tariff hikes; expect the same for the June 30 deadline on high technology investment restrictions.

Others have wondered does the US have trade goals or is this just fighting for fightings sake?

American business wants a productive and functional trade and investment relationship with China.

Relatively few Americans want protectionism at any cost; the majority of American businessmen and women support a hard line toward China on investment and commercial issues for a purpose: To bring Chinas market access and rule-making to the levels of the American economy.

Most Americans want increasing levels of trade and investment with China with adequate corporate and consumer protections, not diminishing interaction.

Dr. Hal Puthoff's speech at the Society for Scientific Exploration 2018 conference "IndyWatch Feed National"


Introduction

The 37th conference of the Society for Scientific Exploration (SSE) was held in conjunction with the International Remote Viewing Association conference,  between 6-10 June 2018, in Las Vegas, USA. One of the speakers was Dr Hal Puthoff

Dr Puthoff spoke of his interest in the areas of a) quantum vacuum fluctuations, b) remote viewing, and c) Unidentified Aerial Phenomena. In this latter area, he spoke about his work with the Advanced Aerospace Weapon System Applications program. This post will highlight parts of his speech which interested me, and is not intended to be a full report of the speech. Quotes below are from Dr Puthoff's speech.

Name of the program

"The program was nicknamed Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program..."Advanced Aerospace Weapons Systems Application program" is the actual name of the program."

My comment:

The Defense Intelligence Agency's 2008 solicitation for bidders for this contract, states that the program was called Advanced Aerospace Weapon System Applications program.

When did the program begin?

"It began in June of 2007..."

My comment:

Although a number of people have made comments that the program commenced in 2007, I have not before seen a month in 2007 mentioned.

Terms used

I note that Dr Puthoff mostly  uses the term "Advanced Aerospace vehicles "when referring to the phenomenon under study.

Soviet Union

"This is a document in the program we dug out of the Soviet Union ("Thread-3.") It's a very thick document. It shows that the Soviet Union had a massive program also trying to get to the root of all of this. In this document a number of research institutes and military institutes are listed..."

My comment:

1. An Internet search using the term "Thread-3" failed to locate any information.

2. The reference to "a massive program" contrasts with information revealed in one of the UK UAP files released last year. File DEFE 24/3152 pages 219-220, reveals a DI55 paper titled 'Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAP)" dated 19 June 1995.

PNG Kumuls beats Fiji Bati 26-14 in rugby league test match "IndyWatch Feed Pacific"

SYDNEY, Australia Winger Junior Rau scored two tries to lead Papua New Guinea to a 26-14 win over Fiji in a rugby league international on Saturday.

Despite giving up more than 500 games of National Rugby League experience to their rivals, Papua New Guinea led 26-4 at halftime and held on for the win.

With just six NRL players to Fijis 10, the Kumuls ran in four tries, with fullback Justin Olam scoring one and setting up another to complement Raus performance.

Samoa played Tonga in the second match later Saturday at the same Campbelltown Stadium in western Sydney.

Before the match, Andrew Fifita said he would play for Tonga for the rest of his career, foregoing tens of thousands of dollars if he had decided to play for Australia. Fifita was born in Sydney but has Tongan heritage.

Last year, Fifita played for Tonga at the Rugby League World Cup, when he was paid 500 Australian dollars ($372) per game. Local media said he could have made 20,000 Australian dollars ($14,880) per game if he had played for Australia. Source:  NZHerald

Then its immersed, head first, in a double-walled dewar of liquid nitrogen, where it hangs indefinitely until scientists figure out how to revive it. In this way, KrioRus has cryopreserved 61 people and 31 pets, including a cat, a goldfinch, and a chinchilla. At least 487 others have signed up.

We are all scared of death, Nucci says. The idea that humans will one day defeat it is fascinating.

If the Erdogan era ends, its likely to be Turkeys cities that deliver the knockout blow.

More diverse and less devout than President Recep Tayyip Erdogans base in the hinterlands, Turkeys three biggest cities Istanbul, Ankara and Izmir rejected the 2017 referendum that created the powerful post of president thats up for grabs in Sundays vote.

Erdogan is the frontrunner, but polls suggest itll be close. And with some 74 percent of Turks live in urban areas, up from 65 percent in 2001 (the year before Erdogans AK Party came to power), signs that big-city voters are moving against him represent urgent warnings for the man whos led Turkey for longer than anyone else.

Talking of the PMS move for a softer Brexit, he was heard to say: We will fight it and win

BORIS JOHNSON was embroiled in a diplomatic row with Brussels last night after he was accused of using a four letter word to dismiss an ambassadors question about the post-brexit needs of British business.

EU diplomats have claimed that during a Foreign Office reception to celebrate the Queens birthday last week, the Foreign Secretary was asked about the fears of some business leaders over Brexit and replied: F business.

He was also overheard talking about Theresa Mays move towards a softer Brexit and saying: We will fight it and we will win. Mr Johnson was in conversation with Rudolf Huygelen, Belgiums ambassador to the EU, at the event in Lancaster House, London, when he was overheard by two diplomatic sources making the comments.

Mr Johnson admitted Britain was more divided now than it had been since the Civil War, after a speech in which he rhapsodised over the wonderful project called Brexit, it is claimed. Sources close to Mr Johnson disputed whether he used the bad language alleged, while insisting that he had been attacking business lobbyists such as the Confederation of British Industry), which wanted a policy that suited its vested interests rather than working people.

News of the alleged outburst was greeted with disbelief in Brussels. One EU-27 diplomat told The Telegraph: It is shocking for him to declare he would take the battle directly to Theresa May and speaking so openly about it. He wasnt hiding his intentions at all. I was shocked by how crude and crass he was.

An EU diplomat from another country said, The Conservatives are meant to be the party of business, but now it looks like the European Commission is the best friend of British business.

Last night a source close to Mr Johnson said: No one has done more to back hard-working British businesses than Boris.

Writing in the Sun yesterday, Mr Johnson warned Mrs May not to allow some sort of bog roll Brexit that was yielding and seemingly infinitely long. He added that regardless of how people voted in the referendum, they just want us to get on and do it, adding: They want this government to fulfil the mandate of the people and deliver a full British Brexit.

Methane Emissions from Oil & Gas Production / Distribution are Excessive "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

Flares, vents, leaks are greenhouse gases

New study says methane emissions from gas and oil industry 60 percent higher than EPA reports

From an Article by Walter Einenkel, Daily KOS Staff, June 21, 2018

A new study published in Nature says that the amount of leaked methane is short-changed in the EPAs own reporting of emissions. According to the studys authors, the amount of information left out by the EPA is considerable.

Methane emissions from the U.S. oil and natural gas supply chain were estimated using ground-based, facility-scale measurements and validated with aircraft observations in areas accounting for ~30% of U.S. gas production. When scaled up nationally, our facility-based estimate of 2015 supply chain emissions is 13 2 Tg/y, equivalent to 2.3% of gross U.S. gas production.

This value is ~60% higher than the U.S. EPA inventory estimate, likely because existing inventory methods miss emissions released during abnormal operating conditions.

Methane emissions of this magnitude, per unit of natural gas consumed, produce radiative forcing over a 20-year time horizon comparable to the CO2 from natural gas combustion. Significant emission reductions are feasible through rapid detection of the root causes of high emissions and deployment of less failure-prone systems.

The issue comes from the less-than-ideal infrastructure used in many cases to contain methane, and the less-than-ideal protocols in repairing a leaking gas and oil infrastructure. As Inside Climate News explains, the amount of leaked methane missed by the EPA is just as bad for the climate in the short term as the carbon dioxide that results from burning natural gas for fuel.

That is bad. It is unlikely that the EPA under this administration will use what resources it has left to fix this situation. Instead they will probably attack the study itself, the paradox being that what the study has uncovered is exactly what the EPA is supposed to make sure happens: safer, cleaner facilities.

In addition, very large emissions from leaking isolation valves at transmission and storage facilities were quantified using downwind measurement but could not be accurately (or safely) measured using on-site methods. There is an urgent need to complete equipment-based measurement campa...

Canadian Utility Makes Blockchain Upstarts Bid for their Ravenous Rigs' Electricity Supply "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

One of Canada's largest utilities is planning to make blockchain companies bid for access to electricity.

Hydro Quebec says it will set aside a 500MW block of power that will be reserved for companies that are "using cryptography as applied to blockchain technology." Access to that block will be subject to a bidding process and companies that want to operate their servers and miners will be required to make bids in order to get power.

The starting rate for the bids will be an increase of 1 cent per kilowatt hour above the current price.

The move is an effort by Hydro Quebec to get a handle on an explosion of blockchain related activity (read: cryptocoin mining) that has caused a power crunch in Quebec. The company said earlier this month that it needed to take emergency measures to limit consumption and that "demand exceeds Hydro-Qubecs short and medium-term capacity."

The process will not just be based on how much money companies are willing to spend. Hydro Quebec says it will also consider job implications in the bids, and companies that plan to hire people in Quebec and deliver higher paying jobs (calculated in payroll per MW) will get higher consideration.

Stopping 'Israelization': Syrians in Golan Heights to boycott municipal election by Israel "IndyWatch Feed World"

Syrian residents of the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights will boycott the first municipal elections by Israel in the area. Thousands of Syrian residents of the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights are expected to boycott the first municipal elections imposed by Israel on the area, rejecting what they call the 'Israelization' of the territory. Following a decision handed down by Israel's supreme court last year to hold, for the first time ever, municipal elections in October 2018 for the occupied Golan's 26,000 Syrian residents, local religious leaders and village elders are calling for a full rejection of the elections, calling it a "red line." "With regards to the Golan Heights families, we are Syrian Arabs living under Israeli occupation and there is no possible way for us to accept these elections imposed on us," Abu Wadih, an elder from Majdal Shams, told Al Jazeera.

People Will See Us and Cry "IndyWatch Feed Politics.eu"

One of the advantages of having several different hobbies is that I get the chance to look at things through different lenses. Aside from blogging I am also into reading, hiking, poetry, dance fitness, and amateur dramatics, and the last one can often feel quite therapeutic but then, pretending to be someone youre not for two hours a night can hardly fail to be. Currently Im involved in a production of the musical Fame, set in a performing-arts school in New York in the early 1980s. The show has a number of storylines, but the stand-out one concerns the ambitious and celebrity-obsessed performer Carmen Diaz. As one of the 97 kids out of 4,000 who got into the school, she is not short of self-belief, but chafes against the institutions teaching, desperate to break out into Broadway and beyond. As Carmen continues to dream of seeing her name in lights, her patience with her teachers ultimately snaps, and she drops out of school to move to Los Angeles after receiving an offer from an agent, ignoring the warning from her drama tutor that shes making the biggest mistake of her life. Needless to say, things dont go quite according to plan for her

Two years into the ongoing (so far) music-free drama that is the Brexit process, its a fair verdict that things arent going quite according to the original plan. Thats assuming, of course, that there was an original plan to start with, and that it wasnt actually an elaborate ruse by the likes of billionaires like Arron Banks and Jacob Rees-Mogg, and media moguls like Rothermere and the Barclays to avoid having their tax loopholes being closed by Brussels To give them their due, the Brexiteers never proclaimed in so many words that we were all going to Live Forever and Learn How To Fly, but they might just as well have done. DExEU Secretary David Davis is a man who appears to see his job as daily to give evidence of how out of his depth he is; there are reports that he actually enjoys listening to Duncan Wisbeys merciless lampooning of him as the bungling Brexit Bulldog in BBC Radio 4s Dead Ringers, which suggests he may not quite be getting the joke. At one point he seemed to have forgotten that most of Ireland was no longer within British jurisdiction.

Several people killed in explosion at rally supporting new Ethiopian leader "IndyWatch Feed War"

Several people were killed and injured in an explosion at a rally attended by thousands in Addis Ababa on Saturday, Ethiopias new Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed said.

Image may contain: 2 people, people smiling, people standing, beard and indoor

Ethiopias rebel leader Andargachew Tsige met with Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed

The rally was being held in Ethiopias capital in support of the 41-year-old ex-soldier who has outlined a series of radical reforms since taking office in April.

A few Ethiopians were injured. There are a few people who lost their lives, Abiy said in a televised addressed after the explosion, which occurred minutes after he finished his speech at the capitals Meskel Square.

Abiy described the incident as an unsuccessful attempt by forces who do not want to see Ethiopia united.

It was a grenade. Someone tried to hurl it to the stage where the prime minister was in, Seyoum Teshome, a member of the organizing committee, said. I saw some five people injured following the blast, Seyoum told Reuters.

Abiy stunned Ethiopians this month by saying he was prepared to fully implement a peace deal with Eritrea signed in 2000 and meant to end a two-year war between the country and its neighbor that devolved into a stalemate resulting in huge military build up by both countries.

It is one of many policy shifts announced since Abiy took office, moves that could reshape Ethiopias relations with its neighbors and have equally dramatic impacts inside the country of 100 million people.

This video from the USA says about itself:

Immigrant Parents Search for Children Snatched by Government at the Border, But Reunification Is Rare

22 June 2018

More [than] 2,300 children have been separated from their families at the U.S.-Mexico border after their parents were charged with illegal entry under the Trump administrations ongoing zero tolerance policy. As concerns grow about poor coordination between Customs and Border Patrol, which takes the children, and the Office of Refugee Resettlement, which puts them into detention and foster care, The Intercept has a new report on one of the first reunifications.

We speak with journalist Debbie Nathan about a Guatemalan woman whose 5-year-old son was taken from her last month by immigration authorities in Texas after she sought asylum, and has been reunited with him after 38 days in detention. We also speak with Clara Long, a senior researcher at Human Rights Watch. It was a lot of work that took place outside of the government system, Nathan says.

Republicans In Congress Plan To Vote On Immigration Next Week "IndyWatch Feed War"

For the second time in two days, President Trump told Republican House lawmakers on Friday that voting on an immigration bill was a waste of time  but the GOP leadership scheduled a vote for next week anyway.

Republicans should stop wasting their time on Immigration until after we elect more Senators and Congressmen/women in November. Dems are just playing games, have no intention of doing anything to solves this decades old problem. We can pass great legislation after the Red Wave, he tweeted, predicting Republican victories in the midterms.

On Thursday, he tweeted that the House bill was doomed because you need 9 votes by Democrats in the Senate, and the Dems are only looking to Obstruct (which they feel is good for them in the Mid-Terms). Republicans must get rid of the stupid Filibuster Rule-it is killing you!

But two leading House Republicans promised to keep pushing a compromise immigration bill despite the defeat of a more conservative bill Thursday, when 41 Republicans joined all Democrats in voting it down.

House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (Calif.) said it was important his chamber addressed the issue. And House Judiciary Committee Chair Bob Goodlatte (Va.) said he would absolutely keep pushing the bill.

Roku Under Pressure To Solve its Piracy Problem "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

Until the turn of the decade, obtaining online pirate content was almost exclusively achieved by individuals with desktop and laptop computers. With the rise of streaming, set-top devices are now the major entry point.

With Kodi-enabled Android devices grabbing much of the attention (and criticism), other platforms have also been feeling the heat.

Despite offering plenty of legitimate content such as HBO Go, Hulu, and Netflix and playing no active role in the provision of unlicensed media, Roku is one of those enduring a bumpy ride.

Last year following a complaint from Cablevision, the Superior Court of Justice of the City of Mexico handed down a ban, prohibiting stores like Amazon from importing and selling Roku devices due to third parties offering unlicensed content via the platform.

It didnt take long for Roku to react. Last August the company began displaying warnings to users who added channels to their device that werent obtained via the official Roku store. Then just a month later, it was revealed that Roku was assembling its own anti-piracy team.

In the background the legal wheels turned, with Roku trying everything in its power to have the Mexico ban overturned. As of today the ban remains with no clear end in sight but that doesnt mean that Roku has been standing still.

It appears that on May 23, a group of Mexican journalists was welcomed to Rokus Silicon Valley headquarters. Just days later, Roku CEO Anthony Wood and Marketing Director Matthew Anderson visited Mexico City. While these events were no doubt designed to build bridges, Mexicos Telecommunications Law Institute (IDET) painted the efforts in a rather different light.

According to El Economista, IDET said the moves were designed to exert pressure on the judiciary and to sway public opinion in favor of Roku.

[Rokus] intention is to influence the judges who are reviewing this case, which formally has not begun, said IDET member Gonzalo Rojn.

We feel they are doing that because they want to influence the judges, but the truth is that intellectual property rights are still not respected and the truth is that this is a very strong problem for Mexi...

Italian deputy PM Matteo Salvini: Very existence of United Europe to be decided within the year "IndyWatch Feed World"

Ahead of the EU summit at the end of June, where the latest disagreements within the bloc over migration policy are expected to be on the agenda, Italian Interior Minister Matteo Salvini has lambasted Paris for "lecturing" Rome and resisted Germany's plans to turn away refugees which have been registered in other countries. The leader of the Italy's Euro-sceptic League party, Matteo Salvini, who was appointed the Deputy Prime Minister and Interior Minister at the beginning of June, has warned that the future of the European Union is at stake in an interview with the German weekly news magazine Spiegel. According to the top Italian official, the upcoming talks on the joint budget and the results of the European elections, scheduled for 2019, will show if the whole creation "has become meaningless." "Within a year, it will be decided whether a United Europe will still exist or not," Salvini told the German media outlet.

Anthropomorphic Prisons, where Reality Equals MC2 Escher. "IndyWatch Feed World"

Dog Poet Transmitting.......It's been the general feeling around here. Around here meaning where I happen to be... in any case; the general feeling has been that Magic, in its truest and most sincere fashion, is always in action but we fail to see it; meaning those who can't see it, fail to see it because the spider web dream has taken over the bandwidth of the senses. This happens following the onset of puberty when the world is transformed from a unified awareness, to a dual interactive that then manifests a 'me and them'; 'I and it', 'now and then' as well as 'before and after'. This last occurs when 'now' no longer takes place. There are many permutations of the aforementioned, indicating a mirror that reflects what is before it, giving the impression that you can be in two places at once, while at the same time being nowhere at all.

So, I was thinking about Road Runners and wondering if you could make a pet out of one. That seemed like it might be difficult, given the observable personality of them; as far as I have seen. They remind me of velociraptors. I heard a faint voice in my head that seemed to be saying, So... you like them, do you? Reflexively, I responded in the affirmative. Yesterday 4 of them showed up in the backyard where none had ever been there before and they had to come through a fence. I did not see this. My friend told me about it.

Let's expand on that a bit. Two mornings ago, the day after I was thinking about The Road Raptors, one of them came up to the glass patio door and was looking into the house (for me?). I was told this by a friend but this is just the source of that info speaking. I wasn't there. It was a day after when the four of them showed up and were doing mating dances. Perhaps this was meant to get my attention? Then, yesterday, one came into the yard. This time I was there and it jumped up on a rock and started preening and such. What will today bring? It's early times yet. I've probably got the time sequencing wrong but the story is as it was.

A couple of days ago, I noticed a rabbit. It is a tiny rabbit and I pointed it out to my friend. For some reason, unknown to me, I started looking out at the Spool (there is a Spool in the backyard) frequently. I had no particular reason for this. Today, I looked out and I saw a creature swimming. It was swimming in a situation that it couldn't get out of. Last month we had to pull a dead rabbit out of there.

I yelled to my friend and ran out and got the pool skimmer and lifted the creature out. My friend was saying it was a frog. I said, No, it's a rabbit. It was the same rabbit I mentioned. It had stopped paddling just moments before I lifted it out; giving up I believe. It lay motionless for a few seconds and then it hopped off into a bush.

Some very odd events have been going on since I survived the recent incident that went on for several days...

June 22, 2018 6:38 p.m. ET

Special counsel Robert Muellers investigation may face a serious legal obstacle: It is tainted by antecedent political bias. The June 14 report from Michael Horowitz, the Justice Departments inspector general, unearthed a pattern of anti-Trump bias by high-ranking officials at the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Some of their communications, the report says, were not only indicative of a biased state of mind but imply a willingness to take action to impact a presidential candidates electoral prospects. Although Mr. Horowitz could not definitively ascertain whether this bias directly affected specific FBI actions in the Hillary Clinton email investigation, it nonetheless affects the legality of the Trump-Russia collusion inquiry, code-named Crossfire Hurricane.

Crossfire was launched only months before the 2016 election. Its FBI progenitorsthe same ones who had investigated Mrs. Clintondeployed at least one informant to probe Trump campaign advisers, obtained Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court wiretap warrants, issued national security letters to gather records, and unmasked the identities of campaign officials who were surveilled. They also repeatedly leaked investigative information.

Mr. Horowitz is separately scrutinizing Crossfire and isnt expected to finish for months. But the current report reveals that FBI officials displayed not merely an appearance of bias against Donald Trump, but animus bordering on hatred. Peter Strzok, who led both the Clinton and Trump investigations, confidently assuaged a colleagues fear that Mr. Trump would become president: No he wont. Well stop it. An unnamed FBI lawyer assigned to Crossfire told a colleague he was devastated and...

The history-making first Air Niugini jet flight into Goroka "IndyWatch Feed Pacific"


History was made  in Goroka on Monday,June 4, 2018, as the first Air Niugini jet aircraft landed in Goroka after many years.

At just after 12.30pm, Air Niugini Flight P2-ANR, with Captain Francis Pohonhelan in the cockpit of the F70, flew down from the Bena mountains into the Goroka Valley to land on the brand-new runway.

It was just a test flight, with no passengers on board, as hundreds of excited people lined the perimeter fencing of the airport to welcome back jet flights.




Jet flights into Goroka stopped in 2005 due to the deteriorating condition of the runway.

Since then, Goroka has only been taking in smaller Air Niugini and PNG Air aircraft, especially the Dash-8.

A jubilant Pohonhelan, who used to fly F-28 jets into the town before,  said after the history-making flight that resumption of jet flights augured well for the economy of Goroka and Eastern Highlands.

National Airports Corporation programme-director for the Asian Development Bank-funded Civil Aviation Development Investment Programme (CADIP), Manua Kametan, was beaming as well.



Prime Minister Peter O'Neill flew in the next day on an F70 jet and opened the Goroka Airport.

Wavethrough CVE-2018-8235 flaw in Microsoft Edge leaks sensitive data "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

A flaw in the Edge browser, dubbed Wavethrough, addressed by latest Microsoft Patch Tuesday for June 2018 could be exploited to read restricted data.

A bug in the Edge browser addressed by latest Microsoft Patch Tuesday for June 2018 could be exploited by attackers via malicious or compromised websites to read restricted data.

The flaw was reported by Google developer Jake Archibald, it was tracked as CVE-2018-8235 and ties the way the browser handles requests of different origins.

A security feature bypass vulnerability exists when Microsoft Edge improperly handles requests of different origins. reads the security advisory published by Microsoft.

The vulnerability allows Microsoft Edge to bypass Same-Origin Policy (SOP) restrictions, and to allow requests that should otherwise be ignored. An attacker who successfully exploited the vulnerability could force the browser to send data that would otherwise be restricted. 

An attacker could exploit the vulnerability to force the browser to leak restricted data. The attack scenarios could involve maliciously crafted websites, compromised domains, or websites that accept or host content provided by the user or advertisements.

The flaw was dubbed Wavethrough because the issue occurs when a site leverages service for the loading of multimedia content, and the < audio > web API, which leverages range requests.

Browsers use this for resuming downloads, but its also used by media elements if the user seeks the media, so it can go straight to that point without downloading everything before it, or to pick up metadata if its one of those annoying media formats that has important metadata at the end of the file. wrote Archibald.

Unfortunately, via a service worker, that Range header was going missing (dun-dun-dunnnnnnnnn!). This is because media elements make what we call no-cors requests. Lets push that onto the stack too

The problem is caused by the fact that  the Range header was missing via a service worker because media elements make no-cors requests.

If you fetch() something from another origin, that origin has to give you permission to view the response. By default the request is made without cookies, and if you want cookies to be involved, the origin has to give extra permission for that. continues the researcher.

Conservative Republican members of Congress are sharply criticizing their Democratic colleagues on immigration, accusing them of wanting to go back to so-called catch and release policies for illegal immigrants.

Only 19 percent of the American people support the Democrat position, said Rep. Raul Labrador, R-Idaho, citing a new Economist/YouGov poll. Catch and release is the controversial practice where illegal immigrants are released from custody and told to show up to a court hearing at a designated later date. But Republicans contend that the vast majority do not appear for their hearings, which usually occur three to five years later.

Labrador referenced the Economist/YouGov poll, conducted June 17-19 of 1,500 U.S. adults, at the monthly Conversations with Conservatives event on Capitol Hill.

The poll also found that a majority of Americans supported keeping illegal immigrant families together, with 44 percent saying that those families should be detained together until a court hearing determined whether they would be allowed to stay in the United States, a practice that was put in place Wednesday by President Donald Trump via executive order.

From Point Blue Conservation Science in the USA:

New research on avian response to wildfires

The varied ways birds respond to fires of mixed severity

June 22, 2018

Summary: New research explores the effects fire has on ecosystems and the wildlife species that inhabit them. Scientists examined the impacts of fires of different severity levels on birds and how that changes as the time since fire increases. Scientists looked across 10 fires after they burned through forests in the Sierra Nevada. A key finding was that wildfire had strong, but varied, effects on the density of many of the bird species that were studied.

As we enter another wildfire season in California, attention will turn to the inevitable fires and efforts to extinguish them. After these fires burn, land managers are tasked with deciding how, where, and when to act to manage these new conditions. It is vital that land managers use the latest science to understand the effects that fire has on the ecosystem and the wildlife species that inhabit them. New research [by] Point Blue Conservation Science explores these effects, looking at impacts of the severity of fire on birds and how that changes as the time since fire increases. Scientists looked across 10 fires up to 15 years after they burned through forests in the northern Sierra Nevada. Key among the findings is the observation that wildfire had a strong effect on the density of many of the bird species that were studied.

However, the severity of the fires affected different bird species differently. Of the 44 species studied, 18 reached their maximum densities after high-severity fire, 10 in moderate-severity, and 16 in areas affected by low-severity fire.

A Cleverly Concealed Magnetic Loop Antenna "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

Were sure all radio amateurs must have encountered the problem faced by [Alexandre Grimberg PY1AHD] frequently enough that they nod their heads sagely. There you are, relaxing in the sun on the lounger next to the crystal-blue pool, and you fancy working a bit of DX. But the sheer horror of it all, a tower, rotator, and HF Yagi would ruin the aesthetic, so what can be done?

[Alexandre]s solution is simple and elegant: conceal a circular magnetic loop antenna beneath the rim of a circular plastic poolside table. Construction is the usual copper pipe with a co-axial coupling loop and a large air-gapped variable capacitor, and tuning comes via a long plastic rod that emerges as a discreet knob on the opposite side of the table. It has a 10 MHz to 30 MHz bandwidth, and should provide a decent antenna for such a small space. We cant help some concern about how easy to access that capacitor is, on these antennas there is induced a surprisingly large RF voltage across its vanes, and anyone unwary enough to sit at the table to enjoy a poolside drink might suffer a nasty RF burn to the knee. Perhaps wed go for a remotely tuned model instead, for this reason.

[Alexandre] has many unusual loop projects under his belt, as well as producing commercial loops. Most interesting to us on his YouTube feed is this one with a capacitor formed from co-axial soft drink cans.

Thanks [Geekabit] for the tip.

Anti-fascist teenager reveals how Russian security services brutally beat and tortured him "IndyWatch Feed Politics.eu"

Since October 2017, the FSB have been running a terrorism investigation into Russian anarchists and anti-fascists. But as Alexey Poltavets' experience shows, this case has a violent backstory. 

Investigative prison, Penza. Source: OVD-Info. Since October 2017, nine people have arrested as part of The Network case, which has seen Russian anti-fascists and anarchists in St Petersburg and Penza detained on terrorism charges. According to Federal Security Service (FSB) investigators, all the arrested men were members of an organisation that planned to provoke the popular masses for further destabilisation of the political climate in the country during the Russian presidential elections and FIFA World Cup. Cells of the organisation were allegedly operating in Moscow, St Petersburg, Penza and Belarus.

But as has become clear, this case has a history that goes back to spring 2017. Sofiko Aridzhanova, a Moscow-based journalist and anarchist, recently revealed that FSB officers informally interrogated her in February last year. And on 23 May 2018, Viktoria Frolova, a friend of the suspects in Penza, was detained at the Russian-Ukrainian border. Frolova was forced to give a testimony against her acquaintances from Penza. Prior to that, Frolovas boyfriend Alexey Poltavets told OVD-Info how he was arrested, beaten up and tortured by FSB officers in Penza. According to Poltavets, he is referred to as Boris in the FSBs case files for the Network case.

Here, he tells how he was detained and tortured in March 2017.

Morning Prayer For Saturday, June 23, 2018 Constant Contact with God Where your treasure is; there will your heart also "IndyWatch Feed War"

How long, O simple ones, will you love being simple-minded?
And how long will scoffers delight in their scoffing
and fools hate knowledge?
Turn back at my reproof
behold, I will pour out my spirit to you;
I will make my words known to you.

Proverbs 1:22-23

(Dont get Stuck on Stupid)

Image may contain: cloud, text, nature and outdoor

Do not be focused on yourself

No chain is stronger than its weakest link. Likewise, if you fail in the
day-by-day program, in all probability it will be your weakest point.
Great faith and constant contact with Gods power can help you
discover, guard, and undergird your weakest point with a strength not
your own. Intelligent faith in Gods power can be counted on to help
you master your emotions, help you to think kindly of others, and help
you with any task that you undertake, no matter how difficult. Am I
master of my emotions?

Meditation For The Day

You need to be constantly recharged by the power of the spirit of
God. Continue with God in quiet times until the life from God, the
Divine life, by that very contact, flows into your being and revises your
fainting spirit. When weary, take time out and rest. Rest and gain
power and strength from God, and then you will be ready to meet
whatever opportunities come your way. Rest until every care and
worry and fear have gone and then the tide of peace and serenity, love
and joy, will flow into your consciousness.

Prayer For The Day

I pray that I may rest and become recharged. I pray that I may pause
and wait for the renewing of my strength.

From the book Twenty Four Hours a Day

***********************************

Jesus told his disciples a parable about the necessity for them to pray always without becoming weary.

How often we get weary of praying when God does not answer our prayers the way we want Him to answer them!  How slow we are to recognize that God knows better than we what is truly good for us!  How difficult it is to remain praying for what we think is right when nothing good seems to happen to us and when we sense that God has abandoned us!

God never abandons any of us but instead is always with us, seeking to form us as wonderful and loving human be...

Andrew Sullivan is Wrong About Trump's Wall "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Andrew Sullivan says that the Democrats should give [Trump] his fucking wall on the border with Mexico. He spills a lot of words to make his case but it all comes down to a few basic ideas. One is straight up fear that Trump will use inaction on the border to his advantage and batter the Democrats into a successful bid for reelection. Another is that only by giving Trump a win on his signature issue can the Democrats defuse the issue. Another is that Trump is owed the wall because he ran on building it and he won, just as Obama ran on expanding access to health care and won. Another is that giving him the wall will allow the Democrats to horsetrade for funding and policies that will actually deal with the humanitarian crisis at the border.

All of these ideas are dubious at best, but the worst one of all is this:

The point is that after this crisis, we have to return this debate to the calm and nitty-gritty area of legislative hearings and compromises, rather than the cable news and social media rhetorical screech of the recent past.

Mr. Sullivan needs to look at the Trump administration with fresh eyes. They are not bashing immigrants because its a legitimate issue. They are leading a white nationalist movement, and the objective facts on the border are wholly irrelevant to them. They will attack the Democrats and accuse them of wanting open borders, of wanting non-citizens to vote, of non-existent in-person voter fraud, of coddling Mexican and Central American gangs because they dont care about crime, or disrespecting Christianity, of only caring about non-whites, of taking white peoples money and wasting it on the urban poor. They will do these things whether or not the Democrats give Trump his fucking wall. There will be no return to calm. There will be no science and evidence-based legislative hearings. The rhetorical screech from cable news and social media and hate radio will not abate.

What Sullivan also fails to adequately explain is how the wall would help the humanitarian crisis. Thankfully, he doesnt argue that it would be an effective way of stemming border crossings or that it could be completed at all, let alone at a reasonable cost. Instead, he simply argues that the Democrats could get a DACA fix and massive new funding for detention facilities, humane family-friendly housing, and, above all, much more money for the immigration legal system, now completely overwhelmed by asylum cases. Im tempted to mock the family-friendly housing wed get through massive spending on detention facilities, but Id rather focus on the idea that the Democrats should willingly participate in the creation of a huge expansion of det...

Maybe Trump Needs a Democratic Congress "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Dan McLaughlin of the National Review is mostly grasping at straws when he argues that congressional Republicans are doing more to moderate President Trumps behavior than is generally understood.

One of the things that is sometimes said as an argument for electing Democrats to office is that Republicans have done nothing to check or restrain President Trump. If you know how Washington works and youve watched events there closely, though, this isnt really true. Just because something doesnt happen in a public, theatrical way does not mean it never happened.

I mean, obviously, Trump gets feedback from the leadership in Congress and there are certain members who have a degree of influence with him. And its true that most Republican politicians can probably kiss their influence goodbye, no matter limited it may be to begin with, if theyre too loud in public in their criticisms.

The problem for this argument is that no one is suggesting that Republicans never talk Trump out of a bad idea. When people say that the GOP has done nothing to check or restrain him, theyre generally talking about a long list of things that come under the umbrella of government oversight. A very partial list includes going along with his phony voter fraud claims (and short-lived investigative committee), his problems with security clearances and proper vetting, his violations of the Emoluments Clause to the Constitution and other examples of self-dealing, and numerous scandals involving cabinet secretaries travel and spending.

Beyond that, the Russia question has not been aggressively or thoroughly explored, which has consequences for actual policy. Congress has not reined in Trumps bizarre behavior on trade and tariffs, which generally runs counter to conservative ideology. They were not on top of Trumps immigration policies, leading to what National Review editor in chief Rich Lowry says is a rout and a debacle that may now harm [the administrations] cause in the larger war over immigration policy and enforcement.

These are just the areas where there should have been a bipartisan interest in better oversight of the White House, but if were talking about what the electorate at large expects, I think the list of concerning things Congress is neglecting to investigate is much larger.  Just on the issue of...

Paul Manafort is Out of Options "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

It makes sense that lawyers for Bob Muellers special counsels office do not want anyone with strong opinions about Ukrainian politics to be serving on Paul Manaforts jury. Those with a pro-Russia bent might see Manafort as a hero of sorts. On the other hand, I dont think Manafort would want the more typical anti-Russian Ukrainian attitude to be present in the jury box, so this restriction should benefit both sides.

Meanwhile, Manaforts last realistic hope of beating the charges against him ended in court today when his lawyers effort to suppress evidence seized from his storage locker failed:

A federal judge in Washington, DC, on Thursday denied Paul Manaforts challenge to the seizure of evidence from his storage unit, finding that agents were allowed to look inside the storage unit before they got a search warrant because they had permission from a person on the lease.

Manafort is pursuing motions to suppress evidence taken from the storage unit and his home in Virginia in both of the criminal cases brought against him by special counsel Robert Muellers office one in DC and one in Alexandria, Virginia. This is the first ruling on the suppression motions; the judge in Virginia is scheduled to hear arguments later this month.

US District Judge Amy Berman Jackson wrote that the initial search of the unit by FBI agents before they got a search warrant and before they opened boxes or actually took evidence was lawful because the agents got consent from a person listed as a lessee for the unit; that individual had been an employee of Manafort. Even if the initial search was unlawful, Jackson wrote, the seizure of evidence later on was still lawful because a judge granted the search warrant based on an affidavit that laid out why investigators believed Manafort was engaged in criminal activity.

The judge also rejected Manaforts arguments that the search warrant was too broad, finding that it instructed agents to look for evidence that directly related to the alleged criminal activity described in the search warrant affidavit to the judge.

Since Manafort is already sitting in prison and no longer has any reasonable prospect of getting out in this lifetime, some decisions can no longer be put off. He could hold out for a pardon from the president, but thats risky for three...

Stephen Miller and American Integration "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

I am going to explain this from the perspective of a child because thats what I was when the ABC miniseries Roots first aired in January 1977. I know I watched a significant portion of the series although its possible my parents decided at some point that it was too disturbing for a seven year old or that it was time for me to go to bed. I have ideas in my head about what the show looked like, the settings, the feel of it. I obviously have more information stored up in my memory banks thats not a recollection of watching the show but of what I learned about it subsequently when studying history or culture or just hearing people talk about it.

What I recollect more strongly than the actual program is the reaction to it. It spurred a nationwide enthusiasm for people (including white people) to search their own genealogies. This was discussed in my elementary school and it drove my parents and I think some of their siblings or cousins to do some research. At one point, I was presented with a huge piece of paper that needed to be folded many times for storage. And it traced back my family's ancestors for several centuries. At different times, Ive made reference to this document on my blog only to receive an email from one parent or the other explaining that Id gotten some detail wrong. I might get a detail wrong now, too, but the most memorable fact uncovered was that we had ancestors who were on the Mayflower and that one of these people actually fell off the ship mid-voyage and had to be rescued. I remember reading a blurb about this fellow in some small New England museum and feeling a strange mix of amusement and shame.

The truth is that most Americans, including me, have almost no knowledge of their own family history beyond the great grandparents. This is especially true for people whose families arrived here in the 19th-Century or earlier. If not for the Roots miniseries, I doubt Id know almost anything about my familys early history.

Since Stephen Miller is the driving force behind the Trump administrations harsh immigration policies, people have been looking into his genealogy and theyve discovered a few interesting facts. Heres one:

Together [E. Randol Schoenberg] and [Rob] Eshman followed Millers mothers sideback to Wolf Lieb Glotzer and his wife, Bessie. That couple arrived from Belarus in 1903 with $8 to their name, escaping anti-Semitic pogroms. In an instance of what today would be called chain migration, they were joined by their son Natan and Wolfs brother Moses, and eventually by another brother, Sam, who changed his name to Glosser. Sam Glosser was the maternal great-grandfather of Stephen Miller.

Trump Finally Went Too Far Even for His Own Party "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Well, lo and behold, President Trump was finally shamed into backing himself out of a corner rather than tripling down.

President Donald Trump said he plans to sign an executive action on Wednesday that would end the administrations policy of separating migrant families crossing the U.S.-Mexico border, abandoning the presidents previous stance that only Congress can fix the problem.

The Republicans want security and insist on security for our country. And we will have that, Trump said during a meeting at the White House with lawmakers and officials. At the same time we have compassion and want to keep families together. Its very important. Ill be signing something in a little while thats going to do that.

He added that he hopes his action will matched by legislation.

How bad was this fiasco?

This freaking bad:

Michael Cohen, President Trumps longtime confidant and former personal attorney, has resigned from his post as deputy finance chair of the Republican National Committees Finance Committee, sources close to the RNC told ABC News.

In his resignation letter to Ronna McDaniel, the RNC chair, Cohen cited the ongoing special counsel investigation as one reason for his departure. ABC News has reviewed the email.

This important role requires the full time attention and dedication of each member. Given the ongoing Mueller and SDNY investigations, that simply is impossible for me to do, he wrote.

Cohen also criticized the administrations policy of separating migrant children from their parents at the southern border, the first time hes distanced himself from the president.

As the son of a Polish holocaust survivor, the images and sounds of this family separation policy is heart wrenching, Cohen wrote. While I strongly support measures that will secure our porous borders, children should never be used as bargaining chips.

Im not sure of the timing, but Trumps decision will at least improve his odds of keeping Cohen from flipping purely out of moral outrage at his former bosss cruelty towards children. And thats not nothing, given the stakes for the president.

Of course, while its a good thing that the government will stop making the problem worse, they have a very huge cleanup ahead of them. Im assuming pressure to find and reunite thousands of children with their families will be unrelenting. And this is a significant strategic defeat, too, because T...

Beyond the Pale of any Acceptable Human Conduct "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Everyone knows that the Trump administrations child separation policy is the kind of catastrophically immoral practice that even Josef Goebbels would officially disavow and call fake news. But that doesnt mean that the people in charge of implementing it are going to stop.

Acting director of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Thomas Homan knows the policy is indefensible, but he hasnt tendered his resignation.

In a short but revealing interview, head of ICE Thomas Homan on Tuesday appeared to express discomfort with President Donald Trumps policy of separating immigrant children from their parents.

When CNNs Wolf Blitzer repeatedly pressed him on whether the policy is humane, Homan responded with a long pause and broke eye contact with the host. Even then, he refused to answer the question which is really all the answer any viewer should need.

Mr. Homans boss, Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen, knows why she was chased out of a Washington D.C. Mexican restaurant (of all places) by protesting members of Democratic Socialists of America. She must know that that was only the beginning of the well-deserved harassment shell receive if this continues on. But she has not resigned.

Vice-President Mike Pence traveled to Philly last night and he knows why it did not go well.

Outside the event, hundreds of protesters descended on Center City during the Stop Separating Families rally to oppose President Donald Trumps immigration policy. Several laid out childrens shoes in solidarity with the families being torn apart at the border.

The crowd chanted City of brotherly love says no, and Say it loud, say it clear, immigrants are welcome here during the protest. One woman also walked through the crowd for at least an hour with a speaker playing the sounds of a baby crying.

Why Won't John Kelly Resign? "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

How is this for a profile in political leadership from John Kelly, the White House chief of staff?

Kellys status in the White House has changed in recent months, and he and the president are now seen as barely tolerating one another. According to four people close to Kelly, the former Marine general has largely yielded his role as the enforcer in the West Wing as his relationship with Trump has soured. While Kelly himself once believed he stood between Trump and chaos, he has told at least one person close to him that he may as well let the president do what he wants, even if it leads to impeachment at least this chapter of American history would come to a close.

What kind of person continues on in his or her job beyond the point at which theyve given up on being effective or preventing an historic disaster? Who doesnt seek to exfiltrate themselves for a situation in which high crimes and misdemeanors are being committed in their field of responsibility? How do we view a chief of staff who gives up on leading either his boss or his staff and then just sits there occupying space, making apologies out of one side of his mouth and leaking excuses out of the other?

And this is too generous to Kelly, because hes been a hardliner on immigration and discouraged the president from making any kind of deal with Congress.  If the administration is now committing a crime against humanity at the border, Kelly owns every part of that policy, and all the more every day that he remains in his position.  He just sits there like a bump on a log while the president praises the character of Kim Jong-Un, says Russia properly owns Crimea, and lobbies to have sanctions lifted against Russia and the country returned to the G7.

Now he sounds like hes eager for his whole administration to be frogmarched out of the West Wing because it will end the nightmare were all living through. Does he think hell escape the Tuff-tie hand restraints?

I dont know how to define this behavior because cowardice doesnt seem to quite cover it.

The Entrapment of Michael Caputo and Roger Stone "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Prosecutors from the special counsels inquiry questioned Caputo last month and confronted him with a meeting he set up between a Russian and Stone. At that point, Caputo knew he and Stone were in trouble and theyve been working ever since to concoct a defense. The defense wont clear them of lying to Congress, but it appears that the Russian in question had worked as an FBI informant in the past. So, supposedly, this is a case of entrapment.

Caputo is unique among the suspects in the Russia inquiry in that hes the only one I know of who has persistently bragged over the years about having worked for the Kremlin. He got his start working to help Boris Yeltsin beat the odds and win reelection. Later on, he had a job burnishing the image of Vladimir Putin in the United Statees as an employee of Gazprom Media. Along the way, he never seems to have strayed too far from Roger Stones side, working with on a variety of trollish New York state campaigns, including the long-shot gubernatorial bids of Carl Paladino and Tom Golisano, and the takedown of attorney general Eliot Spitzer.  Its probably through Stone that Caputo made the acquaintance of Donald Trump and landed a job working as a senior communications adviser for his campaign.

While serving in that capacity, Capu...

The Russia Conspiracy is Getting Revealed "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

George Cottrells arrest was hardly noticed at the time, especially in the United States, and it appeared even in the court documents that his subsequent cooperation with federal prosecutors pertained to the crimes for which he had been indicted, which had no obvious relationship to the Russia investigation. Before long, however, we may all know his name and his story, and he could wind up being a key figure in the downfall of Donald Trump.

Youll have to go behind a paywall to find out how George Cottrell survived his time in a U.S. prison. He was arrested at OHare International Airport on July 22, 2016, the same day that Julian Assange did his major dump of hacked emails from the Democratic National Headquarters.

Seated in a dark suit with a glass of claret in front of him at lunch recently in the Sydney Arms in Chelsea, George Cottrell describes the evening of 23 June 2016 as the best night of my life something Ill never forget.

On that day of the EU referendum poll, indeed throughout that overheated political summer, Cottrell had been in the jump seat at Nigel Farages side, working as his aide-de-camp, gatekeeper and campaign fixer from booking his helicopters to letting Simpsons Tavern in the City know that Nigel was on the way for what he likes to call a PFL (Proper Fing Lunch).

George is the nephew of Alexander Fermor-Hesketh, 3rd Baron Hesketh, a UK Independence Party donor, former member of the House of Lords, and Knight Commander of the Order of the British Empire. He was 22 years old when the Feds intercepted him at OHare, seized his phone and laptop, and charged him with twenty-one counts, including blackmail, dark web money laundering, conspiracy, and wire fraud.  He had been traveling in the company of Nigel Farage and his entourage as they sought to return home to England from the Republican National Convention in Cleveland, Ohio.

Understandably embarrassed, Mr. Farage sought to distance himself from his aide-de-camp.

After the arrest, Farage called Cottrell a 22-year-old unpaid volunteer and party su...

Epic dust storm on Mars now engulfs entire planet "IndyWatch Feed World"

On Mars, the sky is dust. A massive dust storm on Mars that covered one-fourth of the planet just a week ago has grown into a global weather event, NASA officials said Wednesday (June 20). The dust storm has knocked NASA's Opportunity rover offline for want of sunlight. The agency's nuclear-powered Curiosity, meanwhile, is snapping photos of the ever-darkening Martian sky. The two rovers are on opposite sides of Mars. "The Martian dust storm has grown in size and is now officially a 'planet-encircling' (or 'global') dust event," NASA officials said in a statement. [The Mars Dust Storm of 2018 Explained] The last dust storm on Mars to go global occurred in 2007, five years before the Curiosity rover landed at its Gale Crater site, according to officials with NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) in Pasadena, California. The Opportunity rover has been exploring the plains of Meridiani Planum on the opposite side of Mars since 2004. During that 2007 Martian dust storm, NASA also lost contact with Opportunity for days due to low power levels from the lack of sunlight.

Donald Trump and the 1930s playbook: liberal democracy comes unstuck "IndyWatch Feed War"

I really dont care. Do u? said graffiti on the back of Melania Trumps coat as she boarded the plane for Texas to visit encaged child migrants. No one, except Donald Trump, who tweeted that her garb was meant as a criticism of the fake news media, could be sure whom the First Lady was targeting. Some thought she was channelling her husbands views. Others believed she was telling the world what she thought of her marriage. Either way, it captured the nihilism of a week in which the wests liberal democratic glue appeared to be coming unstuck. It was hard to miss the echoes of the 1930s.

Make no mistake, there is a concerted attack on the constitutional liberal order, says Constanze Stelzenmller, a German scholar at the Brookings Institution. And it is being spearheaded by the president of the United States.

Mr Trump started the week by trying to undermine a key American ally. He attacked Angela Merkels tenuous coalition government in Germany for allowing in millions of people who have so strongly and violently changed their culture. It followed a summit between the premiers of Austria and Bavaria in which they called for an axis of the willing from Berlin to Vienna to Rome to stop migration. Italys deputy prime minister, Matteo Salvini, called for a census of Roma citizens evoking Italys fascist-era registry of Jews. Unfortunately, we have to keep those with valid resident permits, he said.

VPC: Value for Money? "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

Guest Author ALLAN ROBERTS, the Enquirers correspondent for Harbours, has been applying further scrutiny to the financial viability of the Vincent Pier Crane (VPC) in Scarborough Harbour another major coup for Harbours Portfolio Holder Councillor Mike COCKERILL [Ind.Ind.].

~~~~~

The Harbourmaster has stated that in the year ending March 2018, the crane on the Vincent Pier has cost 1,847 in repairs and maintenance, and has generated an income of 1,363 in the same period.

Further data provided by the Harbour Master show the Vincent Pier crane finances over the past 13 years:-

It is readily apparent that, even after disregarding the initial installation costs (in 2005), the crane has never, throughout the ensuing thirteen years, generated enough income to cover even one-half of its maintenance costs.

It is interesting also that the SBC Financial Strategy document dated March 2017 contains this paragraph:

Value for money should be at the heart of everything the Council does, and the pursuit of improved efficiency and performance needs to be established as an ongoing underlying principle.

I wonder, how do the Vincent Pier Crane figures over the last 13 years represent Value for Money?

Perhaps Councillor COCKERILL would care to explain?


Based on the information provided by SBC via FOIA 1386, 3283, 4098, 4640, 5116 and 5867.

FOIA 5867 also discloses that, during the 2017/18 financial year, the Vincent Pier Crane was out of action for 38 days over 10% of the year. During this down time, SBC did not provide alternative facilities.

WHILE were generally not particularly interested in the outcome of the WesternGeco case (WesternGeco v Ion), its still useful to observe because it can shed light on the Justices views on patents. Were mostly interested in cases that pertain to patent scope (this directly affects USPTO guidelines), not so-called damages.

The only upside we see here is that it weakens or shatters any illusions about SCOTUS being biased or lacking credibility.We first saw Jason Rantanens fast response to it. Watchtroll wrote a couple of articles about this outcome, amplifying himself and the other patent extremists (i.e. the usual recipe).

The EFFs Daniel Nazer called it a disappointing opinion, as the court ended up ruling for patent maximalism, for a change.

To quote:

The Supreme Court issued a disappointing opinion [PDF] today holding that a company could recover patent damages for lost profits overseas. The courts rea...

12 European States Revolt "Merkcron" Plan to Reform Europe

Another excellent article by Tyler Durden. He really covers the bases here.

This looks very much like the de-europeanization of the EU where each country returns to its own currency and autonomy with a loosely held association of European states.

Without a strong Germany and/or France to carry the load this time around, the rest of the EU are not going to follow the M&M's any further. That means that Merkel's days are numbered and the pathetic plan of Macron will simply blowup in his RKM face.

Consequently, Macron will likely face a loss of support in France once his internal RKM supporters are either removed or rendered powerless.

This sets the stage for the necessary GESARA provisions to be implemented in Europe.

Given that the Paris Treaty has nothing to do with the RV/GCR or GESARA, there is no visible authority for the implementation of GESARA worldwide. However, NESARA is already signed into law here... just not implemented yet.

So my guess is that we will see NESARA implemented here first and that will be the touchstone for GESARA to be immediately signed into law around the world under emergency measures... after the mass indictments and subsequent arrests have begun.

Trumps Order on Migrant Families Sends Administration Scrambling "IndyWatch Feed War"

WASHINGTONPresident Donald Trumps executive order to end the separation of undocumented families at the southern border was written in a day, but itll take months to take effect as agencies fight over how to implement it.

The confusion that followed Wednesdays hastily signed order at the White House was reminiscent of one of Mr. Trumps first acts in officeissuing a travel ban that was aimed largely at immigrants and visitors from Muslim-majority countries without allowing agencies to prepare for its implementation.

Mr. Trumps ability to throw off his agencies was laid bare at a meeting at the White House Thursday night, when Homeland Security officials expressed skepticism that the zero-tolerance policy was legally and logistically feasible, while Justice Department officials insisted prosecutions of undocumented adults who entered the U.S. could and should continue, a person familiar with the meeting said. There was lingering disagreement during another White House meeting Friday afternoon.

It would be very helpful to the White House, at this point, to create a task force that can implement it and the president...

Germanys Angela Merkel keeps Turkey at arms length "IndyWatch Feed War"

Turkeys upcoming presidential election can also been seen as a preliminary vote on the future of its accession to the EU. While German-Turkish ties remain tense, it wasnt long ago that things seemed to be promising.

    
Verhltnis Deutschland Trkei (picture-alliance/dpa/W. Kumm)

When Angela Merkel was first elected German chancellor in 2005, German-Turkish relations were still harmonious. On October 3, the European Union (EU) began accession negotiations with Turkey, with then-Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan; who had steered his country on course towards modernization, gladly taking part. Merkel praised the numerous reforms initiated by Turkeys parliament at the time, including abolishing the death penalty, granting the Kurdish minority more rights and curtailing the power of Turkeys generals. The country even undertook significant reforms relating to freedom of expression and the press in an effort to meet the EUs humanitarian and civil rights standards.

Failure to appreciate Turkeys reforms

Yet Turkeys efforts were met with distance and rebuffed, argues Caner Aver, a project manager at Essens Center for Turkish Studies and Integration Research. At the exact moment when Turkey was carrying out major reforms, German Chancellor Merkel began floating the idea of making Turkey a privileged EU partner rather than a full member. Merkels plan to exclude Turkey from the bloc was an affront to all those who had worked tirelessly and passionately trying to get a progressive Turkey into the EU, says Aver. It also sparked speculation over whether some were simply trying to keep the EU a Christian club, he adds.

US Navy planning new camps, housing to support immigration crackdown "IndyWatch Feed War"

The US Navy plans to build sprawling detention centers for tens of thousands of immigrants on remote bases in support of President Donald Trumps zero tolerance policy against unlawful migration, a report said Friday.

Image result for donald trump, angel families, photos

President Trump with Angel families

According to a draft memo obtained by Time magazine, the navy plans to build temporary and austere tent cities to house 25,000 migrants across three abandoned air fields in Alabama, 47,000 people at a facility near San Francisco, and another 47,000 at a training center in southern California.

The document estimates the navy would spend $233 million to run a facility for 25,000 over six-months.

Asked for comment, Pentagon spokesman Lieutenant Colonel Jamie Davis said: The Department of Defense is conducting prudent planning and is looking nationwide at DoD installations should DHS (Department of Homeland Security) ask for assistance in housing adult illegal immigrants.

At this time there has been no request from DHS for DoD support to house illegal migrants.

The fate of 2,300 children wrested from their parents at the US border with Mexico remained unclear Friday two days after Donald Trump ended migrant family separations.

While the US leader bowed to global outrage over the splitting of families, conflicting messages were contributing to a sense of chaos in the handling of the crisis.

But having been forced into a climbdown, Trump swung back into fighting mode insisting he remained committed to the zero tolerance policy that aims to deter the flow of migrants from Central America.

We must maintain a Strong Southern Border. We cannot allow our Country to be overrun by illegal immigrants as the Democrats tell their phony stories of sadness and grief, hoping it will help them in the elections, he tweeted.

Trump also met at the White House with parents of victims killed by undocumented immigrants.

The parents standing with Trump have been permanently separated from their loved ones, the president said, because they were killed by criminal illegal aliens.

Threat Intelligence Platform on War Against Cybercriminals "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

Hackers and scammers have been extremely harsh on companies readily exploiting any vulnerability they can with threats ranging from phishing to malware to DDoS and many more. So not surprisingly, 73% of attacks against organizations in 2017 were perpetrated by malicious outsiders.

Of course, CEOs around the world are anxious. In fact, 40% of them report being extremely concerned about cyber threats. And they feel compelled to take actions by improving their security processes and policies, training their employees, and leveling up their tech stack. But to do that effectively and prioritize their resources, businesses and other entities need to know what they are really up against.

That is where a solution like Threat Intelligence Platform (TIP) can help anticipate hackers thoughts and moves by flagging the weak spots of websites, email servers, and other IT systems in addition to unmasking scammers. This post takes a closer look at why threat intelligence is relevant and how it works in practice.

What is threat intelligence?

In a nutshell, threat intelligence is about gathering and interpreting evidence-based data regarding ones cybersecurity state to mitigate and prevent existing and upcoming threats. It supports decision-making and identifies where IT security budgets are most likely to be best allocated. As such, threat intelligence applies to a variety of contexts, even though it may sometimes be subject to several pitfalls.

Pitfall #1: Only large corporations should care about threat intelligence

Small and middle-sized businesses often overlook the importance of cybersecurity since they perceive that cybercriminals only care for the big fishes. This is not true, however. A recent report by the Ponemon Institute shows that 61% of small businesses were targeted over a period of 12 months. SMEs are attractive victims because they typically have fewer means to fight back making it even more crucial to make wise decisions about where to spend money.

Pitfall #2: Threat intelligence is only the job of security professionals

Hackers and scammers are in for easy gains. So why would they attack organizations where defenses are the strongest? On the contrary, they are likely to aim for employees who know very little about cybersecurity and are not directly responsible for it. Companies can prevent this by partially decentralizing accountability and find simple ways to get staff members involved with threat monitoring.

Pitfall #3: Firewalls and antivirus software are enough

Built for speed: DNA nanomachines take a (rapid) step forward "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

The smallest Imperial Walker to ever attack the rebel alliance.


When it comes to matching simplicity with staggering creative potential, DNA may hold the prize. Built from an alphabet of just four nucleic acids, DNA provides the floorplan from which all earthly life is constructed.

But DNAs remarkable versatility doesnt end there. Researchers have managed to coax segments of DNA into performing a host of useful tricks. DNA sequences can form logical circuits for nanoelectronic applications. They have been used to perform sophisticated mathematical computations, like finding the optimal path between multiple cities. And DNA is the basis for a new breed of tiny robots and nanomachines. Measuring thousands of times smaller than a bacterium, such devices can carry out a multitude of tasks.

In new research, Hao Yan of Arizona State University and his colleagues describe an innovative DNA , capable of rapidly traversing a prepared track. Rather than slow, tentative steps across a surface, the DNA acrobat cartwheels head over heels, covering ground 10- to 100-fold faster than previous devices.

Midnight Meme Of The Day! "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"


by Noah

62 Million Archie Bunkers voted for what you see here. 62 Million Trumpists. 62 Million fans of Trump's brand of extreme fascism. It was already bad enough the we've had decades of creeping, incremental fascism from our two major political parties but that just wasn't enough for those who voted for the man who, according to at least one of his ex-wives, keeps a book of Hitler's speeches by his bedside. 62 Million longed for a completely totalitarian regime of brutality and they're getting it. They hate those who protest against police who murder. They support those who steal children from the arms of their parents and lock those children in cages. It's the stuff of the original old nightmarish German and Russian fairytales. Republicans do all this while they falsely profess to be pro-family and chant that "every child deserves a mother and father." 62 Million republicans, fake independents and even some democrats looked at Trump, saw the obvious, and still said "that's my guy". For the majority of them, Trump was the hero they have been waiting for, and, still is.

The Trumpists twist Romans 13 from their bible using a quote that was once used to justify slavery and later used to justify Hitler's nazism. They twist the Bible for their own sick purposes just like sick Muslim terrorists twist the verses in the Koran. Trump supporters look at the little boy in tonight's meme and they see MS-13 because they have embraced and nurtured their hates and their fears and allowed themselves to be programmed to do so. They tweet things about the need to electro-shock this boy. They call him a "monkey". This is the result of decades of conservatism. It's not the end result, though. That's shaping up to be even worse. Republicans in Virginia have recently nominated an avowed and proud white supremacist as their...

Human Destiny Revealed at the End of the Yellow Brick Road "IndyWatch Feed Tech"





We are still a little short of heaven on Earth, but there the path is becoming clearer. For all of us, we truly are on the yellow brick road, but almost all fail to know this, believing instead that this is all that is.  That turns out to be laughable. particularly once you understand the central role of those dark matter processors in every cell in producing order.



I accepted my destiny a long time ago, and remain  in wonder of just what that all means.  I have been told that i will see my hundredth birthday and not when i will pass from this world.  The curves of time suggest it may well be possible to greatly extend my presence here until i have seen my agendas completed.  To this end i now follow new physical paths as well that have been brought to me.

We live in a time of mythology and Cyrus will clean the world of all corruption.  Men with power will live with fear and adhere to the highest ethos.  That is now well begun and it will roll out worldwide.  I have shown us the road to end all poverty through the natural community and the assertion of the rule of twelve.  That too is coming.  Thus heaven on Earth will begin.

This rule of twelve surely mastered the Bronze Age and underwrote the integrity of the global Atlantean Mythos we have utterly forgotten.

I am the Pathfinder and may have and certainly could have sailed with Columbus and Prince Rupert during this passing of my Soul.  Love the cross for it will guide you home.

There is a range of sizes and we normally see the males.  the females are smaller and sport a large tail and lack the robust upper shoulder structures, thus looking more like a dog.  It is the male seen on two legs commonly as well.

Upright Canine / Dogman Accounts & Comments

The following comments were found at Beyond Creepy and other locations, in reference to YouTube upright canine / dogman accounts:

When I was 18 years old I was visiting a friend who lived out in the boonies. She had 20 acres of land, horses and had no neighbours at all living around her. During the visit I helped her with some outside chores that took almost the full day. It was around 6:30pm, we had just finished working, she was about 50 feet away from me with another person chatting and I was looking for a good place to walk my dog. As I stood there looking at some open field with a large bluff of trees behind it my eye caught a glimpse of a dark black figure hiding behind some trees. It stood upright and seemed curious about me. I had no idea that dogman existed back then so my initial thought was 'why is someone wearing a fur costume in the middle of nowhere'. I stared at it for awhile as it stared at me. It had a snout like a dog, long straggly furred arms with long fingered hands, I could not see its legs or a tail because of the shrubs and the tree. Now that I know about the dogman, I do believe that is what I witnessed that day. - Allyson Jayne

New US Tariffs are Anti-Maker and Will Encourage Offshoring "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

Hardware hacker Bunnie Huang has written concrete details in his blog about how the new US tariffs are anti-maker and will promote offshoring. However, it is not quite too late ... yet. With the right pushback it might be possible to salvage the situation.

The new 25% tariffs announced by the USTR, set to go into effect on July 6th, are decidedly anti-Maker and ironically pro-offshoring. I've examined the tariff lists (List 1 and List 2), and it taxes the import of basic components, tools and sub-assemblies, while giving fully assembled goods a free pass. The USTR's press release is careful to mention that the tariffs "do not include goods commonly purchased by American consumers such as cellular telephones or televisions."

[...] There is a sliver of good news in all of this for American Makers. The list of commodities targeted in the trade war is not yet complete. The "List 2" items which include all manner of microchips, motors, and plastics (such as 3D printer PLA filament and acrylic sheets for laser cutting) that are building blocks for small businesses and Makers have yet to be ratified. The USTR website has indicated in the coming weeks they will disclose a process for public review and comment.

Mainstream Media in Germany Covers Battistellis Corruption at the EPO Just as He Leaves "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

Corruption isnt a word many people use anymore, simply for fear of SLAPP (not because evidence is insufficient)

Wirtschaftswoche

Summary: Mainstream German media writes about Battistellis scandals that nobody seems eager or wishes to discuss, let alone bring up; law-centric German media covers the now-famous open letter from German law firms (Grnecker, Hoffmann Eitle, Maiwald, and Vossius & Partner)

IN ONLY about a week Antnio Campinos becomes the new President of the EPO. He was quoted again in the media (in English for a change) just before the weekend in relation to his job as the EU-IPOs chief.

Belatedly, mainstream media in Germany covers not only Battistellis passage of EPO money to his other employer but also the financial scandals (potential corruption as well) a subject that we dedicated about half a dozen long posts to.Campinos will never hold Battistelli accountable for anything (hes indebted to him), but will others hold Battistelli accountable? We certainly hope so.

If nobody associated with the Office (EPO) can do anything to Battistelli because of his immunity (were not legal professionals, but its possible that his immunity at least for what he did as President extends beyond his term), then someone in Paris can perhaps do something because Battistelli has been doing some profoundly dodgy things; he and his political allies may benefit from it (financially and more), but there are opposition parties still; we wrote about a dozen articles about this issue alone, only to see the corporate media totally ignoring it. Well until now. Belatedly, mainstream media1 in Germany covers not only Battistellis passage of EPO money to his other employer but also the financial scandals (potential corruption as well) a subject that we dedicated about half a dozen long posts to.

NO REST FOR THE AWAKE - MINAGAHET CHAMORRO "IndyWatch Feed Pacific"

I have spent the past few weeks meeting with people who are running for political office here in Guam this year. Some for senator, some for governor. This year promises to be an exciting one in terms of campaigns and candidates. With five teams running for governor (4 Democrats and 1 Republican). More than 80 packets for senatorial candidates have been picked up, with only 15 possible seats in the legislature. Mampos meggai na mnnok manmallagu gi knton guma'!


What is different this year however is not just the amount of candidates, but also the diversity in terms of their background. More and more, people are running for office who haven't been in formal government service before. They haven't worked in a political machine. They are outsiders, activists, educators, working class people, lawyers, professionals, veterans, journalists and more. The question remains however, and I will acknowledge from the very start of the conversation, that there is nothing intrinsically better in terms of electing insiders or outsiders. Those who come from within a system can have knowledge to keep it running well or reform it. Those who come from without may have new ideas or not be enamored or bogged down with institutional loyalty or dependency. But at the same time, outsiders struggle to navigate systems they may have disdained before or just wish would evaporate and insiders may not even be able imagine past the limits into which they were born.

Insiders or outsiders, both have things to offer, your support for one or another may have alot to do with where you see yourself in relation to larger structures of power and society. For example, many white uneducated Americans may have voted for Trump, wanting to send an outsider to Washington D.C. to destroy the swampy system of the federal government. But in truth, their perception and identity as people outside of the system has little relevance to their relationship to that system. In truth, far more than any other group, those white Americans are greatly served by the existing system. It supports them and privileges them far more than any others. We saw this in terms of Republican attempts to destroy Obamacare. While most of Trump's supporters felt that system was against them or hurting them, in truth it helped make sure that more poor Americans got access to health care and couldn't be denied health care because of pr...

Switzerland's World Cup win over Serbia in Kaliningrad has been overshadowed by celebrations made by the two Swiss goalscorers, Granit Xhaka and Xherdan Shaqiri, both of whom are of ethnic Albanian descent. Xhaka struck the Swiss equalizer in the 52nd minute before Shaqiri scored a late winner when he broke free from the half-way line to slot past Serbian goalkeeper Vladimir Stojkovic, handing the Swiss a 2-1 victory. Both players are of Kosovan-Albanian descent, and appeared to make a winged salute symbolizing the eagle on the Albanian flag. Shaqiri also played in boots marked with the flags of Switzerland and Kosovo - the breakaway region that is not recognized as independent by Serbia or Russia. The players' celebrations sparked debate on Twitter, with some questioning the need to mix politics with football, and asking whether world football governing body FIFA would take action.

Imperial President or Emperor With No Clothes? "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

How Donald Trumps Trade Wars could lead to a Great Depression.

By Nomi Prins and cross-posted from Tom Dispatch

Leaders are routinely confronted with philosophical dilemmas. Heres a classic one for our Trumptopian times: If you make enemies out of your friends and friends out of your enemies, where does that leave you?

What does winning (or losing) really look like? Is a world in which walls of every sort encircle Americas borders a goal worth seeking? And what would be left in a future fragmented international economic system marked by tit-for-tat tariffs, travel restrictions, and hyper-nationalism? Ultimately, how will such a world affect regular people?

Lets cut through all of this for the moment and ask one crucial question about our present cult-of-personality era in American politics: Other than accumulating more wealth and influence for himself, his children, and the Trump family empire, whats Donald J. Trumps end game as president? If his goal is to keep this country from being, as he likes to complain, the worlds piggy bank, then his words, threats, and actions are concerning. However bombastic and disdainful of a history he appears to know little about, he is already making the world a less stable, less affordable, and more fear-driven place. In the end, its even possible that, despite the upbeat economic news of the moment, he could almost singlehandedly smash that piggy bank himself, as he has many of his own business ventures.

Still, give him credit for one thing: Donald Trump has lent remarkable new meaning to the old phrase the imperial presidency. The members of his administration, largely a set of aging white men, either conform to his erratic wishes or get fired. In other words, hes running domestic politics in much the same fashion as he oversaw the boardroom on his reality TV show The Apprentice.

Now, hes begun running the countrys foreign policy in the same personalized, take-no-prisoners, youre-fired style. From the moment he hit the Oval Office, hes made it clear at home and abroad that its his way or the highway. If only, of course, it really was that simple. What he will learn, if learning process and President Trump can even occupy the same sentence, is that firing Canada, the European Union (EU), or for that matter China has a cost.

What the American working and the middle classes will see (sooner than anyone imagines) is that actions of this sort have unexpected global consequences. They could cost the U.S. and the rest of the world big time. If he were indeed emperor and his subjects (that would be us) grasped where his policies might be leading, they would be preparing a revolt. In the end, they again, thats us will be the ones paying the price in this global chess match

Opinion: Children's teeth are paying the price for the cancellation of fluoridation in Calgary "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

By June Dabbagh, Leagh Harfield, Wendy Street-Wadey and Juliet Guichon
As the school year draws to an end, it is time to consider how Calgary has been treating its children lately. In one respect, the answer is not well at all.
Calgary city council decided in 2011 to cease adjusting the fluoride levels in Calgary water. Three of us are dental specialists, and can attest to the devastating consequences.
Consider, for example, Sammys case. On a Saturday, his mother called a dental office reporting that the eight-year-old boy was irritable, feverish and crying constantly. The mother wanted an appointment for Monday morning, but we opened the office to see him. He was not well. An infection in his tooth had crept upward to his eye, such that his lower eyelid was closing.
This is a medical emergency. Once in the eye, a dental infection can travel rapidly to the brain and, if untreated, cause death. One of us went with his mother to Rockyview Hospital. Sammy w...

Latest Freedom of Information documents reveal the lies circulated by Leicester Police and City Council that led to the cancellation of a David Icke event. Welcome to Orwells Britain "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

No, they did not contact me throughout the entire process the same with Norfolk Police and that is both a disgrace to basic justice and shocking that police and government can act to deny freedom of speech on the basis of the lies they have been told and the open sources (the Internet and the papers) repeating the same lies from the same people.

Leicester City Council have done all they can here to keep from the public the people involved and the original source of the lies. As with the Norwich Police Freedom of Information emails, I give the Campaign Against Antisemitism (CAA) the opportunity to publicly state that they had no communications with either Leicester Police or Leicester City Council over my event at the Athena. Contact me with that statement and I will publish it. I am still waiting with regard to Norwich.

It is a real head-shaker to see other cancelled events like at Manchester United quoted as justification when they were misled by the same people in the same way. Once lies are told to get events cancelled those events cancelled due to lies are then used to support the cancellation of later events. What a scam, but Leicester Police, Norfolk Police and Leicester City Council all fell for it like naive and arrogant little children who did not think that contacting me at any point should have been the most obvious thing to do.

The Leicester event went ahead at another venue which the police and council didnt know about and so could not intervene and everything was fine as it always is no holocaust denial or anything like, no protests, no trouble, no problem. 

Now I await STILL await the outrageously delayed response by Leicestershire Police to my Freedom of Information Act request and given that Norwich Police have responded already in a much shorter time they have no excuse for further delay.

I also still await a week later any response to my questions posed to the Norfolk Chief Constable Simon Bailey over the Freedom of Information revelations of the extraordinary and shocking behaviour of his officers with regard to my event in Norwich.

If anyone wishes to politely ask both of them why the delay and the silence these are their emails:

Wolves in Yellowstone, USA, new study "IndyWatch Feed World"

This video is called [2017] National Geographic Documentary Wild Wild Yellowstone She Wolf HD.

From S.J. & Jessie E. Quinney College of Natural Resources, Utah State University in the USA:

Wolf reintroduction: Yellowstones landscape of fear not so scary after all

June 22, 2018

After wolves were reintroduced to Yellowstone National Park in the mid-1990s, some scientists thought the large predator reestablished a landscape of fear that caused elk,

North American elk should not be confused with still larger moose (Alces alces) to which the name elk applies in British English and in reference to populations in Eurasia.

the wolfs main prey, to avoid risky places where wolves killed them. This fueled the emerging idea that predators affect prey populations and ecosystems not only by eating prey animals, but by scaring them too. But according to findings from Utah State University ecologists Michel Kohl and Dan MacNulty, Yellowstones landscape of fear is not as scary as first thought.

Contrary to popular belief, the wolf is not a round-the-clock threat to elk; it mostly hunts at dawn and dusk, and this allows elk to safely access risky places during nightly lulls in wolf activity, says Kohl, who completed a doctoral degree at USU in 2018 and is lead author of the paper. Despite their Hollywood portrayal as nighttime prowlers, wolves tend to hunker down at night because their vision is not optimized for nocturnal hunting. With colleagues Daniel Stahler, Douglas Smith, and P.J. White of the U.S. National Park Service, Matthew Metz of University of Montana, James Forester of University of Minnesota, Matthew Kauffman of University of Wyoming, and Nathan Varley of University of Alberta, Kohl and MacNulty report their findings in an Early View online article of Ecological Monographs...

Ten days after Trump-Kim summit hard work yet to begin "IndyWatch Feed War"

The landmark summit between President Donald Trump and Chairman Kim Jong Un ended with a pledge of complete denuclearization, but ten days on no timetable for action has emerged.

After flying back to Washington last week, giddy with success, the US leader tweeted There is no longer a Nuclear Threat from North Korea  a bold claim with Kims arsenal still in place.

Anthony Wallave, POOL/AFP | US President Donald Trump (R) walks out with North Koreas leader Kim Jong Un (L) after taking part in a signing ceremony at the end of their historic US-North Korea summit in Singapore on June 12.

But senior US officials admit there is much work to be done as negotiators thrash out the details of what they hope will be Pyongyang complete, verifiable and irreversible disarmament.

Many observers were disappointed that the short statement of intent signed by the two leaders was not more clear on the definition of denuclearization, fearing Kim plans to keep his hard-won deterrent.

>> Trump-Kim summit the art of the deal? No, say experts

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo angrily insists that the term complete in the document encompasses the concept that the denuclearization will be verifiable and irreversible.

Trump has gone further, claiming on June 12 that the process will start very quickly, then on June 21 confusing the issue: It will be a total denuclearization, which is already taking place.

Pompeo has been only marginally more cautious.

On June 13, he said We believe that Kim Jong Un understands the urgency that we must do this quickly and added that he hopes for major disarmament within two-and-a-half years.

So far, however, this confidence rests solely on trust in the assurances that Kim gave Trump at the summit, and his reported promi...

Die ACLU rckt anscheinend von ihrer Fundamental-Verteidigung ... "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

Die ACLU rckt anscheinend von ihrer Fundamental-Verteidigung von Free Speech ab. Das ist eine Zeitenwende. Die ACLU ist eine der wenigen Organisationen, die bisher beinhart an ihren Prinzipien festgehalten haben, siehe z.B. als sie sich 1934 entschieden haben, Nazis zu verteidigen. Das hat sich damals schon angedeutet, dass die ACLU am Einknicken ist, aber im Vergleich zu der "Argumentation" jetzt in diesem Memo war das ja vergleichsweise immernoch beinharte Prinzipientreue. Ich zitiere mal von der Ex-ACLU-Aufsichtsrtin Wendy Kaminer, die dieses Memo auch geleakt hat:

Their vague references to the "serious harm" to "marginalized" people occasioned by speech can easily include the presumed psychological effects of racist or otherwise hateful speech, which is constitutionally protected but contrary to ACLU values. Faced with perceived conflicts between freedom of speech and "progress toward equality," the ACLU is likely to choose equality.
Wenn die ACLU Free Speech nicht mehr verteidigt, ist das glaube ich bald vorbei damit in den USA. Ich habe die immer sehr respektiert fr ihre knallharte Prinzipientreue. Mir fllt keine andere Organisation ein, die so berechenbar und verlsslich war wie die ACLU an der Stelle.

Wenn man relativiert, in welchen Fllen Grundrechte verteidigt werden, sind es halt keine Grundrechte mehr. Sondern eher so temporre Leihgaben des Knigs, der es sich jederzeit anders berlegen kann.

Ronald Bernard Explains His Life and Satanism "IndyWatch Feed National"

by Mary W Maxwell, LLB

It is well worth 33 minutes of your time to listen to the entire video by Ronald Bernard. We have heard him before, speaking Dutch, but he is fluent in English.

This is a great presentation. He made it at the Westminster sitting, whatever that means, of the new group called International Tribunal for Natural Justice (not to be confused with a similar one founded by Kevin Annett in Canada) .

In a nutshell, Ronald Bernard had a cruel upbringing and it should have knocked the mickey out of him altogether. But later he was able to break out of it and find love, and give love. His story is somewhat like Wendy Hoffmans biography, Enslaved Queen. She thinks she would have been without the human trait of love except that when she was 4 years old a kind boy named Daniel looked after her.

For me the main importance of this video is that the speaker tells us how he came to put his conscience in the freezer and have no qualms about his assignment to wreck economies and businesses. He says that if he and colleagues read that a man had killed himself, due to business failure, leaving a wife and kids to suffer, they would all have a good laugh.

I have been told by reliable people that George W Bush could enjoy something like that. I recall Wayne Madsen reporting as soon as the Abu Ghraib story became known, that the Oval Office had a direct link to the prison to watch the torture.

I have often said that both the Bush presidents were tortured as children, and we should feel sorry for them.  Of course that does not mean we should let them be in charge of a nation.

Ronald says such people still have human in them but its locked in a bunker. And they are afraid of the adults.  They need a bridge to come over.  A bridge of forgiveness.  There is a whole army of people who want to take care of them. They also need affection, e.g., through animals.  This is at 14.50 minutes on the tape.

Thanks to the new tribunal for bringing this talk to us. Its getting about a thousand hits per day.

At 16.48 Bernard says Its not about the perpetrators. Its about the billions of people who are doing nothing. Thats us. Please give it a go.

Update: I have now watched 3 more of the videos and they are fabulous:

#OccupyICE Actions Spread Across the US

In this episode, we talked with someone in New York about that ongoing anti-ICE actions there. But first, lets look at how #SurroundICE has been playing out across the US.

In Portland, Oregon, the US flag has been officially taken down, only to be replaced with a black flag bearing the words: Refugees Welcome.

Now, close to entering its second week on Sunday, the encampment still continues to grow and increasing its infrastructure is spreading out to more and more territory. As one VICE article wrote:

The scene at the makeshift encampment along the railroad tracks abutting the ICE facility was a communal and jovial one when I visited, the surreal and wildly diverse scene akin to that of an incredibly woke music festival taking place in the Mad Max universe. People setting up new tents on Wednesday made jokes with other protesters, who welcomed them to the neighborhood. Kids frolicked about with parents in tow to hand out granola bars. A team with flashlights kept traffic flowing away from the swelling crowd that listened to speakers lit by a nearby candlelit vigil. A Spanish-language info tent had been erected to advise families who had appointments with ICE. There were even wooden cabinets someone had dragged from home and stocked neatly with first aid supplies and leftist literature, adding to the surreally homey feel of the festivities.

FRIDA KAHLO

Frida Kahlo: Making Her Self Up
Victoria&Albert Museum, Cromwell Road, London SW7 2RL
16 June 4 November 2018
Admission 15 (concessions available).

SOLD out to the end of this month, the V&A is presenting an exhibition exploring the life and art of Frida Kahlo (b. 1907), one of the most significant artists and women of the 20th century, and how she fashioned her identity.

Frida Kahlo: Making Her Self Up is the first exhibition outside of Mexico to display her clothes and intimate possessions, reuniting them with key self-portraits and photographs to offer a fresh perspective on her compelling life story.

Frida Kahlo de Rivera (July 6, 1907-July 13, 1954) was born Magdalena Carmen Frida Kahlo y Caldern; she was inspired by the 1910-1920 Mexican Revolution and joined the Mexican Communist Party in 1927, where she met her husband the muralist Diego Rivera. She painted many portraits, self-portraits, and works inspired by the nature and artifacts of Mexico, employing a nave folk art style to explore questions of identity, postcolonialism, gender, class, and race in Mexican society.

Her paintings often had strong autobiographical elements and mixed realism with fantasy.

Born to a German father and a mestiza mother, Kahlo spent most of her childhood and adult life at her family home in Coyoacn, La Casa Azul (The Blue House), now known and publicly accessible as the Frida Kahlo Museum.

She was left disabled by polio as a child, and at the age of eighteen was seriously injured in a traffic accident which caused her pain and medical problems for the rest of her life. Kahlo empowered herself through her art and dress after suffering the devastating near-fatal bus crash which rendered her bed-bound and immobilised for protracted periods of...

The Catholic Church in Resistance "IndyWatch Feed National"

The tradition is represented as noble, the confiding link between confessor and penitent, a bridge never to be broken, even under pain of death.  Taken that way, the confessional is brandished as the Catholic Churchs great weapon against the wiles and predations of secular power.  The State shall have no say where the priests confidence is concerned, for all may go to him to seek amends.  The sacramental seal, goes the relevant code of canon law, is inviolable; therefore it is absolutely forbidden for the confessor to betray in any way a penitent in words or in any manner and for any reason.

Those points certainly have merits, even if these seem a touch faded after the sex abuse imbroglio the Church has found itself in.  Confession, which functions as a barometric reading of Catholic guilt, has developed its own succour and relish, an ecosystem of ritual and understanding resistant to the prying of the criminal law.  Not merely does its ironclad protection provide a dispensation from the laws of the land in certain troubling cases; the confession, in effect, serves as an economy of ordered guilt, reassurance for the next binge of sin. To remove it, or at the very least heavily qualify it, would be an unsettling challenge to a distinct Weltanschauung.

The process effectively permits all including erring priests to engage the process from either side of the grille. Historically, the process also imperilled children.  Pope Pius X, in decreeing in 1910 that confession should commence at the tender age of seven, permitted an army of celibates access to vulnerable, and in certain instances titillating flesh.

Legislators troubled by the enduring force and fascination with the seal of the confessional have gotten busy, most notably in Australia.  This was prompted, in no small part, by the findings and recommendations of the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse. We are satisfied, went the Australian report, that confession is a forum where Catholic children have disclosed their sexual abuse and where clergy have disclosed their abusive behaviour in order to deal with their own guilt.

One recommendation specifies that institutions which have a religious confession for children should implement a policy that requires the rite only to be conducted in an open space within the clear line of sight of another adult. But the members of the Royal Commission went beyond the spatial logistics of the confessional.  Institutional jolting was required.

Each state and territory government, argued Commission members, should pass legislation creating a criminal offence of failure to report targeted at child se...

Eulogizing Anthony Bourdain "IndyWatch Feed War"

For the last few days I have had to read about Anthony Bourdain and how he was such a wonderful human being. The praise in these eulogies has been laid on thick, with Bourdain being hailed as an exceptional human being who stood up for marginalized societies and championed social justice issues. I have also read post after post on social media websites by so-called thought leaders or vegan activists respected in the animal rights movement, who complain about those of us who dared criticize the actions of Mr. Bourdain. They claim that those of us who point out his cruelty to animals are celebrating the death of a decent human being. They argue that in exposing these flaws, we give the animal rights movement a bad name; that we are simply dancing on the grave of the deceased. We disliked him, they say, because he was not a vegetarian or vegan like us. Yet their claims could not be further from the truth. We are not rejoicing that Mr. Bourdain suffered and killed himself; and we did not criticize him because he was a meat eater. Our criticisms in regard to Mr. Bourdain are not about this. Rather, they are centered on exposing his cruel actions against helpless sentient beings actions that have and will continue to cause problems for non-human animals long after he is buried. What we are trying to do is point out how his actions were contrary to what we vegans and animal right activists stand for: compassion for all life, both human and non-human. In this commitment we mirror the sentiments of Dr Albert Schweitzer, who coined the term Reverence for Life. This is something that Mr. Bourdain did not believe in.

In order to fairly and justly assess Anthony Bourdain as a public figure, we need to separate the mental turmoil that led to his demise from the way in which he chose to live his life without any apparent moral compass regarding how to treat non-human animals. These two issues are separate and must not be conflated into one issue.

As I have said in response to a lot of folks who appear to believe that Mr. Bourdain walked on water, it gives me no joy knowing he suffered and killed himself. Death and suffering are not to be rejoiced in. I strongly and sincerely feel sorry for his family and extend my condolences to them. I also strongly feel we should extend our compassion to Mr.Bourdain and have the heart to forgive him for what he has done to animals; on the other hand, we should never forget these actions. I would like to point out that he may have been progressive on some social justice issues, but that his progressivism did not extend to the treatment of non-human animals. Rather, he despised animals and those human beings that stood up for them. He was an anthropocentric, speciesist individual. To reiterate, my criticism of Mr. Bourdain isnt about him as a human being but about his actions against non-human animals. Most of the people who criticize him merely point out that this so-called celebrity was no saint, tha...

Will the USA and South Korea Cancel Joint Exercises? "IndyWatch Feed Asia"

SKU4534524

As the audience remembers, at a press conference after the summit with the leader of DPRK in Singapore Donald Trump told that the USA will stop the military exercises held together with South Korea. We will stop war games, the US President said, having called them provocative and extremely expensive.

Let us remind you that every year the USA and South Korea hold large joint exercises: in spring Foal Eagle and Key Resolve (held since 2001), in autumn Ulchi Freedom Guardian (held since 1976). Carrier strike groups, strategic bombers from Guam base, invisible fighters, atomic submarines and other offensive arms are regularly involved in them. It is not by chance that the Russian and Chinese experts paid attention that these actions of Washington and Seoul increase tension and are provocative not less, than North Korean missile launches and nuclear tests.

North Korea especially opposed exercises, claiming that it was preparation for invasion, and indicating that there were scenarios of landing of troops in North Korea, capture of Pyongyang, bombing of key infrastructure facilities and special operation on liquidation of the senior leadership of DPRK up to Kim Jong-un, worked out with a vengeance on the maneuvers.

Perhaps, a part of audience does not fully understand the sheer scope of these actions and their orientation. Just a simple example: 1317 thousand people took part in the joint Russian-Belarusian exercises Zapad-2017 (West-2017), and they werent an annual event. Nevertheless, a number of European countries were absolutely outraged, having perceived these maneuvers as training of aggressive actions aimed at annexation of territories of the adjacent countries. Meanwhile, nearly 50 thousand people, that is 3 times more, took part in the smallest of the exercises which were to be reduced!

And these are only the largest exercises: together with smaller and secondary (for example, maneuvers of the Air Force of two countries) there are from 10 to 20 maneuvers a year depending on the situation.

No wonder, that the peninsula was shaken by the duty aggravation in March April and July August every year. The Northerners were asking to stop, the Southerners were saying that exercises were an internal affair of the country and they might train anything they wanted; then the parties exchanged bellicose statements of the type just try and make any provocative act and we (no, we!) will smash you apart; afterwards the exerci...

The Indian Crossroads: Will Modi Choose Putin Or Trump? "IndyWatch Feed Asia"

Indias plans for becoming a world power are unsustainable without the strong growth that would be afforded by a 1990s China-like economic partnership with the US, and its decision makers are now beginning to fear the consequences of indefinitely remaining the US junior partner for the rest of the century.

Brevet Exams Success Rate at 82.31% "IndyWatch Feed World"

Lebanons Minister of Education announced yesterday the results of the official exams for the intermediate certificate and the success rate reached 82.31% compared to 81.78% in 2017 and 75.90% in 2016. While the success rate has improved from past years, it is still surprisingly low given how easy the Brevet exams are and the unfortunate widespread cheating during these exams.

Instead of removing the exam as it was suggested a couple of years ago, it should be kept permanently in my opinion and the ministry should get proper supervisors to eliminate all sorts of cheating and penalize students and teachers who do.

Assets of the world's "high net wealth" millionaires ballooned to $70 trillion in 2017 "IndyWatch Feed World"

The concentration of the planet's wealth in the hands of a narrow financial elite is growing by leaps and bounds. A new report published Tuesday reveals that the wealth of the world's 18.1 million "high net worth individuals" - those having investable assets of $1 million or more-shot up by 10.6 percent last year to top $70 trillion for the first time ever. The "World Wealth Report 2018," issued by the consulting firm Capgemini, revealed that the combined wealth of the world's millionaires rose for the sixth consecutive year in 2017 to reach $70.2 trillion. It is on target to surpass $100 trillion by 2025. Capgemini defines a high net wealth individual (HNWI) as someone with assets above $1 million, excluding his or her primary residence, collectibles, consumables and consumer durables. This defines a wealthy elite that owns more than $1 million in stocks, bonds, real estate or other investments.

Washington and much of the Western world live in state of cognitive dissonance "IndyWatch Feed World"

In this column I am going to use three of the current top news stories to illustrate the disconnect that is everywhere in the Western mind. Let us begin with the family separation issue. The separation of children from immigrant/refugee/asylum parents has caused such public outcry that President Trump has backed off his policy and signed an executive order terminating family separation. The horror of children locked up in warehouses operated by private businesses making a profit off of US taxpayers, while parents are prosecuted for illegal entry, woke even self-satisfied "exceptional and indispensable" Americans out of their stupor. It is a mystery that the Trump regime chose to discredit its border enforcement policy by separating families. Perhaps the policy was intended to deter illegal immigration by sending the message that if you come to America your children will be taken from you. The question is: How is it that Americans can see and reject the inhumane border control policy and not see the inhumanity of family destruction that has been the over-riding result of Washington's destruction in whole or part of seven or eight countries in the 21st century?

U.S.A. fact of the day "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

There are some 400,000 children in the foster care system, many of whom are prohibited from any parental contact. Of those, about 12 percent are housed in institutional settings or group homes.

These children are typically taken by officials they have never met, without warning, then subjected to intrusive interrogations, medical examinations and sometimes strip searches, wrote Paul Chill, a law professor at the University of Connecticut, in a 2004 article about practices that experts say continue today.

Some three-quarters of cases nationwide involve not abuse, but neglect, a really broad umbrella that often just looks like poverty, said Christopher Wildeman, a sociologist at Cornell University who studies the effects of paternal incarceration and foster care. Theres no consistent evidence that removing kids is, on average, beneficial, and theres substantial evidence that it does harm, he said.

Even a caretakers authorized use of medical marijuana use can be grounds for removing children.

That is from Shaila Dewan at the NYT, with other good points too.

Skynet for The Win? AI Hunts Down Secret Testing of Nuclear Bombs "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

AI can detect signs of nuclear weapons testing banned under the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty, according to research from the US Pacific Northwest National Laboratory. A group of scientists have built a neural network to sniff out any unusual nuclear activity. Researchers from the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL), one of the United States Department of Energy national laboratories, decided to see if they could use deep learning to sort through the different nuclear decay events to identify any suspicious behavior.

The lab, buried beneath 81 feet of concrete, rock and earth, is blocked out from energy from cosmic rays, electronics and other sources. It means that the data collected is less noisy, making it easier to pinpoint unusual activity.

The system looks for electrons emitted and scattered from radioactive particles decaying, and monitor the abundance of argon-37, a radioactive isotope of argon-39 that is created synthetically through nuclear explosions.

Argon-37 which has a half-life of 35 days, is emitted when calcium captures excess neutrons and decays by emitting an alpha particle. Emily Mace, a scientist at PNNL, said she looks for the energy, timing, duration and other features of the decay events to see if it's from nuclear testing.

"Some pulse shapes are difficult to interpret," said Mace. "It can be challenging to differentiate between good and bad data."

Deep learning makes that process easier. Computer scientists collected 32,000 pulses and annotated their properties, teaching the system to spot any odd features that might classify a signal as good or bad.

"Signals can be well behaved or they can be poorly behaved," said Jesse Ward. "For the network to learn about the good signals, it needs a decent amount of bad signals for comparison." When the researchers tested their system with 50,000 pulses and asked human experts to differentiate signals, the neural network agreed with them 100 per cent of the time. It also correctly identified 99.9 per cent of the pulses compared to 96.1 per cent from more conventional techniques.

[...] The results were presented at the Methods and Applications of Radioanalytical Chemistry conference in Hawaii this year.

Hungary Passes Stop Soros Law, 2290 "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

This is a paid sponsorship by: - Ray Mikelonis, an independent representative of plant-based products which have been scientifically proven to naturally increase the number of adult stem cells in your body. CLICK HERE: BillStill.StemCellintern.com Good evening, Im still reporting on: Hungary Passes Stop Soros Law, 2290 Synopsis: Unlike in the U.S. today, where American communists are able to flood the MSM zone with pro-illegal and anti-Trump propaganda, today, the Hungarian Parliament passed a package of bills throwing significantly tighter controls on illegal immigration. Called the Stop-Soros laws, the legislation made it illegal for Soros-funded non-governmental organizations (NGOs) to help illegals enter the country and find loopholes in existing law to remain without proper documentation. Prime Minister Viktor Orban has led eastern European opposition to EU quotas designed to cover for the open immigration mistakes made by Germanys Angela Merkel. Orban has accused Soros of encouraging mass immigration to undermine Europe. The Hungarian people rightfully expect the government to use all means necessary to combat illegal immigration and the activities that aid it, Interior Minister Sandor Pinter wrote in a justification attached to the draft legislation. In addition, today, Parliament also passed a new constitutional amendment making any European Union attempt to force illegal alien resettlement programs on Hungary unconstitutional. This week, President Trump noted that tough stances on immigration were becoming increasingly popular with European voters, recently bringing recent election victories to populists in Italy and Austria, and denying Angela Merkel an outright victory in Germany. Now, with Merkels popularity dropping sharply, Hungarys constitutional amendment blocking any EU-mandate to absorb the illegals flooding Germany may be the final nail in Frau Merkels coffin.

Turning point? Democrats are losing their fear of and standing up to AIPAC and mega Israel-donor Haim Saban "IndyWatch Feed World"

Last night in Connecticut, Sarah Walsh of AIPAC told a Conservative synagogue audience that the lobby group is striving to ensure that support for Israel remains bipartisan, but there are more signs that progressive Democrats feel they are able to criticize Israeli policies. First, Rebecca Vilkomerson of Jewish Voice for Peace says there's been a reluctance even in the Democratic establishment to defend Israel during the Gaza slaughter. In an interview with the Real News, Vilkomerson said Trump's embrace of Netanyahu has opened the door for formerly-silent Democrats to be critical of Israel. "There's a willingness to look at Israel's actions that maybe wasn't possible when Obama was president." I think with the exception of [Chuck] Schumer, no Democrats have been defending Israel's actions. In fact, quite a number, in fact over a dozen, have spoken out against what Israel has done over the course of the last six weeks. And you contrast that with 2014, when I think it was something like 78 senators signed a statement supporting the Gaza war. So there has been a shift in terms of Congress and who's willing to speak out and being able to speak out, and that there's enough backing from their own constituents to speak out that they're not going to be punished by AIPAC or other organizations... [Aaron Mate points out that House whip Steny Hoyer has also given Israel a blank check] We have very very far to go. Also, not defending is very different from saying Stop, and there are lots of tools that the U.S. government has to stop Israel from what it's doing and they're using none of them. Senator Bernie Sanders has obviously been a leader here. He has released videos about Gaza and condemned Israeli killings of unarmed protesters.

Bill Maher Jokes That He Wants Mike Cernovich to Die (VIDEO) "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Bill Maher defended his wish for a recession to hurt support for President Donald Trump on Friday evening and joked that he wants author and journalist Mike Cernovich to die.

Following Mahers ridiculous assertion earlier this month that he is hoping for a recession as a weapon against our president, Cernovich had tweeted that suicides increase during recessions. Bill Maher wants people to die.

The criticism clearly got to Maher, who addressed it on Friday evenings episode.

Yes, specifically Mike Cernovich, Maher joked after reading the tweet.

Maher went on to say, I want him to put his head in the oven so starving kids can use it for food. No, I dont want him to die. I dont know who the f-ck you are Mike Cernovich, but I want you to live a long, healthy life and get the help you so desperately need.

Responding to the jabs from the comedian, Cernovich took it in stride and declared that Maher is obviously a fan of his.

Its funny. Hes obviously a stealth fan, Cernovich told The Gateway Pundit.

While he was clearly joking about Cernovich, he still defended his desire for a recession.

A recession is a survivable event, Maher said. What Trump is doing to this country is not. Democracy is about to go the way of the dinosaurs because weve been taken over by a dodo bird.

So let me repeat, a recession is a survivable event weve survived one every time a Republican is in the White House. Every Republican president since Teddy Roosevelt has presided over a recessionthe United States has survived 47 recession in all. Since the Great Depression, weve never gone more than 10 years without one. Another recession is coming, not because Im rooting for it, but because someone passed a giant tax giveaway to the rich that added trillions to the debt, and started a trade war for no reason and deliberately sabotaged the affordable care act and rolled back the rules for banks so they can once again gamble with our money.

TerraDome Gives Plants And Dinosaurs A New Home "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

Housing exotic plants or animals offer a great opportunity to get into the world of electronic automation. When temperature, light, and humidity ranges are crucial, sensors are your best friend. And if woodworking and other types of crafts are your thing on top, why not build it all from scratch. [MagicManu] did so with his Jurassic Park themed octagonal dome built from MDF and transparent polystyrene.

With the intention to house some exotic plants of his own, [MagicManu] equipped the dome with an Arduino powered control system that regulates the temperature and light, and displays the current sensor states on a LCD, including the humidity. For reasons of simplicity regarding wiring and isolation, the humidity itself is not automated for the time being. A fan salvaged from an old PC power supply provides proper ventilation, and in case the temperature inside the dome ever gets too high, a servo controlled set of doors that match the Jurassic Park theme, will automatically open up.

[MagicManu] documented the whole build process in a video, which you can watch after the break in French only though. Weve seen a similar DIY indoor gardening project earlier this year, and considering its simple yet practical application to learn about sensors, plus a growing interest in indoor gardening itself (pun fully intended), this certainly wont be the last one.

What if sleep was a commodity? "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

Dane emails me:

This is a speculative solve-for-the-equilibrium-type question that Id love to get your thoughts on:

Imagine there was a technology that allowed essentially frictionless harvesting, selling, and buying of (non-perishable) human sleep. Essentially, anyone can strap in to a machine, be put to sleep, and their time/sleep would be harvested in a way that their time sleeping could be used by anyone else who would then get all the benefits of that sleep but instantaneously instead of sleeping themselves, maybe through a painless injection or a drink perhaps.

Imagine also that this technology was relatively non-capital-intensive, or at least, cheap enough that all humans were potential suppliers/buyers of sleep. Call them sleep-workers and sleep-consumers.

Additionally, theres nothing free about the technology. Any sleep-workers or sleep-consumers lifespan would be unaffected in terms of calendar time. Instead, there would be a zero-sum transfer of waking hours between persons. Even an around-the-clock sleep-worker could only net 16 hours of saleable sleep per day. The other 8 hours would have to go to meeting their own sleep needs.

How would this market evolve? How would society evolve? What is the market price for an hour of sleep? How would norms around sleep-working and sleep-consuming evolve? How would the economic indicators evolve (GDP, productivity, inequality, etc)? Which jobs could or could not compete with non-consciousness? How would the welfare state then evolve? How much inter-temporal saving of sleep would there be? Should prisoners be allowed to sleep-harvest for their entire sentences? Would we allow them? Would it be ethical to farm never-conscious humans for the sole purpose of harvesting sleep? Etc

Books We Recommend "IndyWatch Feed World"

QUESTION: Mr. Armstrong,
I stumbled across you a few years ago and found your work refreshingly insightful and the joined the subscription service for the private blog. Though I am just your average middle-class citizen, I am glad that I now have a true picture of what the future holds while many of the sheep walk blindly into the future. Because of your willingness to share I have a general understanding of what is to come and will try to prepare as best as possible. My question is, Is there a book on a period of history that mimics what is going to happen over the next 21 years where I could maybe grab more insight into how the average person can best to position themselves so as not be left out in the cold? Are there any fictional works that nail the future so the average person knows what to do with savings accounts, 401Ks, mortgages, etc in the coming years? Lastly is there the possibility that you would write a special report that we could buy that would be the blueprint for the average American to follow over the next 21 years? I would sure buy it! Thank you for sharing your knowledge and well wishes for many years to come.
Sincerely,
AG

ANSWER: There is no single book that I can recommend. I am trying to find the time to put one together for the sources are many. You can read Herbert Hoovers Memoirs and I would recommend reading 1931. The problem has been that most of the books have been propaganda and have been written to support a predetermined conclusion. Most of my sources have been contemporary, gathering the facts from many sources and putting it all together. Nonetheless, we have provided a number of books you can look at digitally. It has been a lot of work and my time is so tight. I am trying to get this together soon.

AMERIND Risk Shares Pivotal Points: Power to Prepare "IndyWatch Feed 1stpeople"

June is National Safety Month

Published June 23, 2018

Natural Disaster Is Inevitable. Proactive Action Protects Tribal Communities

Global warming is fueling the threat of wildfires, flooding, tornadoes, earthquakes, hurricanes and other natural disasters across Indian Country. Its not a question of, if Mother Nature will cause havoc, but when.

The one thing tribes can help control are creeping insurance premiums, which often result from numerous claims. Catastrophic losses particularly, drive rising insurance rates, which is happening on a national scale.

AMERIND Risk, the only 100%-tribally owned insurance provider in the United States, addresses a key component of reducing costs for Tribal governments and businesses: prevention. Poor attention to safety costs businesses money. AMERIND offers safety training and educational sessions, as well as on-site inspections of property and equipment at no additional cost for policyholders. Beyond that, AMERINDs safety team analyzes the loss trends of Tribal entities who participate in the Tribal Workers Compensation (TWC) program, to identify the underlying cause of their incidents.

In 2017, AMERINDs safety team provided a first-aid training not only to Pueblo of Acoma and Acoma Business Enterprises employees but to members of the community free of charge. The educational component is critical. AMERIND helps you reduce claims by being more safety conscious, whether in your home or business, said Raymond J. Concho, Jr., 1st Lt. Governor of the Pueblo of Acoma.

Emergency preparedness is becoming increasingly necessary for the sustainability of our Tribal communities. The responsibility to prepare for disaster falls on everyonefrom risk managers to Tribal leaders to community members.

When disaster strikes, theres no time for hesitation. Effective emergency plans must be ready to be put into action. Employees must know what to doand be able to do it calmly and quickly.

  • Devise an emergency action plan. Ask your insurance provider for guidance.
  • Train staff in emergency response. All employees should receive basic emergency response trainingwhether your business is planning for a workplace fire or a natural disaster like a tornado or flood.
  • Ensure employees know their emergency assignments, such as shutting down equipment, alerting o...

Does the West Have the Courage To Survive? "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

If youre pathetically weak, the country is going to be overrun with millions of people, and if youre strong, then you dont have any heart, thats a tough dilemma. Id rather be strong.

So said President Donald Trump, on issuing his order halting the separation of children from parents caught breaking into the country. Trumps enemies are celebrating a victory. Yet the issue remains.

Under U.S. law, teenagers and tots cannot be detained for more than 20 days and must be held in the least-restrictive facilities. But if the children cannot be separated from the parents as they await trial, both will have to be released to keep families together.

We are back to catch and release.

When that welcome news hits Central America, the migrant stream moving north will become a river that never ceases to flow.

The questions America and the West face might thus be framed:

Is there a liberal, progressive, Christian way to seal a 2,000-mile border, halt millions of migrants from crossing it illegally, and send intruders back whence they came? Or does the preservation of Western nations and peoples require measures from which liberal societies today reflexively recoil?

Does the survival of the West as a civilization require a ruthlessness the West no longer possess?

Consider what our fathers did to build this country.

The English settlers brought in 600,000 slaves, ethnically cleansed the Indians, joined their cousins in a war to expel the French, then revolted and threw out those cousins to claim all the land to the Mississippi for ourselves.

Jefferson grabbed the vast Louisiana Territory for $15 million from Napoleon, who had no right to sell it. Andrew Jackson drove the Spanish out of Florida, sent the Cherokee packing on the Trail of Tears, and told a dissenting Chief Justice John Marshall where he could go.

Sam Houston tore Texas away from Mexico. Jimmy Polk took the Southwest and California in a war Ulysses Grant called the most unjust ever fought. When the South declared independence, Lincoln sent a million-man army to march them back in a war that cost 600,000 lives.

William McKinley sent armies and warships to seize Puerto Rico, Hawaii, Guam and the Philippines. The indigenous peoples were not consulted. God told me to take the Philippines, said McKinley.

The conquest and colonization of the New World and the creation of the United States and its rise to world power required acts of aggression and war of which many among our elites are ashamed. They exhibit their guilt by tearing down the statues of the men who perpetrated the crimes that created America. But of these elites, it may be fairly said: they could never have built a nation like ours.

Dont Cry for Me, Rachel Maddow "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

The latest artificial hysteria cranked up by the Offendedness Cartel re: detention of juvenile illegal immigrants is the most nakedly sentimental appeal yet by the party out-of-power, a.k.a. the Resistance. I have a solution: instead of holding these children in some sort of jail-like facility until their identity can be sorted out, just give each one of them an honorary masters degree in Diversity Studies from Harvard and let them, for Gods sake, go free in the worlds greatest job market. Before you know it, well have the next generation of Diversity and Inclusion deans, and America will be safe from racism, sexism, and Hispanophobia.

I wont waste more than this sentence in arguing that official policy for the treatment of juvenile illegal immigrants is exactly what it was under Mr. Obama, and Mr. Bush before him. I didnt hear Paul Krugman of The New York Times hollering about the various federal agencies acting like Nazis back in 2014, or 2006. Youd think that ICE officers were taking these kids out behind the dumpster and shooting them in the head. No, actually, the kids are watching Marvel Comics movies, playing video games, or soccer, and getting three square meals a day while the immigration officials try to figure out who their parents are, or how to repatriate them to their countries-of-origin if they came here without any parents say, with the assistance of the Sinaloa Drug Cartel. By the way, these make up the majority of kids detained in the latest wave of mass border crossings.

Actual political leadership among the Resistance is AWOL this week. Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer failed to offer up any alternative legislative plan for sorting out these children differently. One can infer in the political chatter emanating from the Offendedness Cartel that immigration law is ipso-facto cruel and inhuman and that the solution is an open border. In theory, this might play to the Democratic Partys effort to win future elections by enlisting an ever-growing voter base of Mexican and Central American newcomers. But it assumes that somehow these newcomers get to become citizens, with the right to vote in US elections normally an arduous process requiring an application and patience but that, too, is apparently up for debate, especially in California, where lawmakers are eager to enfranchise anyone with a pulse who is actually there, citizen or not.

Krugman of The Times really hit the ball out of the park today with his diatribe comparing US Immigration enforcement to the Nazis treatment of the Jews. As a person of the Hebrew persuasion myself, I rather resent the reckless hijacking of t...

Fake News and immigration "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Unfortunately, Fake News is alive and all too well.

This was witnessed in spades this past week as the Fake News/Kill Trump media lied through its fangs about the President on immigration.

The Fake Newsies, at least 90% of whom are Democrat Party operatives, waxed hysteria over the separation of Hispanic children from their immigrant parents, i.e. those who entered America illegally through the southern border.

Of course, the blame for all of this was laid at the feet of the President, who was excoriated by his political enemies in Washington D.C. and their apologists and fellow partisans in the Fake News industry for his zero tolerance policy.

By now, any remotely honest observer of the political scene should know that the truth is profoundly otherwise than what fake journalists and commentators would have us think.

First, the separation of families for which Trump is being blamed is a feature of a policy that was passed by a Democrat-controlled Congress and signed into law back in 2008 by George W. Bush.  This policy was continued throughout Barack Obamas two terms. 

In fact, the emotionally-charged photos of detention facilities circulated by the Fake News media that were designed to convict Trump of heartlessness were taken while Obama was President.

This is one crucial respect in which coverage of this issue reveals itself for the Fake News that it is.  Yet it is certainly not the only respect.

Second, that for a decadethe decade that their fellow partisans held control of the levers of power in D.C.fake journalists didnt utter a peep about this policy for which they are now blasting Trump proves that they are cooking a controversy for partisan political purposes.

This isnt journalism. It is advocacy. It is political.

It is fake.

Third, the vast majority of those crying over the separation of families have spent decades undermining the sanctity of the family at every conceivable turn.  The idea of traditional family values is one upon which this crew has set its sights with a vengeance.  They have not only mocked and ridiculed all things religious (and, particularly, Christian), they have aggressively sought to fundamentally transform the entire cultural and legal landscape.

Those who have just now discovered the sanctity of the familyand make no mistakes, when they shed their tears (however fake, like their news, these tears undoubtedly are), they imply their recognition of this spiritual and moral realityhave campaigned inexhaustibly for such family-crippling things as: no-fault divorce; de-stigmatizing both co-habitation outside of marriage and illegitimacy; sexual promiscuity; free contraceptives; the empowerment of the State (Child Protective Services) to remove children from their parents, i.e. to separate families; the empowerment of children to divorce their parents; the elevation of homosexuality as...

Why He Lives in Uruguay "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Editors Note: Doug Casey lives in Uruguay but have you ever wondered why?

Most people dont know much about the country. So when Casey Daily Dispatch editor Justin Spittler visited Doug at his Uruguayan ranch, he decided to get the scoop


Justin: So, Doug. Why Uruguay?

Doug: Well, Uruguay used to be known as the Switzerland of South America. It once had the most free-market banking and financial infrastructures, and excellent privacy. It was once very desirable from that point of view. All the Latin Americans used it as a tax haven and a money refuge. It still clings to remnants of that reputation.

Uruguay is also a small country. It is about the size of Missouri. Its population is around 3.5 million people. Small is good, especially when the financial industry is a big part of the local economy. To me, small is attractive

Its quiet and backward. When I first visited in 1980, I thought I was stepping back into the 1930sI kid you not.

Geographically, the place is like Julius Caesars Gaul. Its divided into three parts.

One part is Montevideo, the capital. Its home to a million people, and the center of economic activitysuch as it is. Its got some upmarket areas, but its a dump for the most part.

Then theres Punta del Este, a beach resort town. Packed in the season, from Christmas to February 1, but very very quiet the rest of the year. Thats where the rich live.

Then, the third part, is the endless pampas in the countrys interiorjust farmland. Theres really nothing of interest once you leave Punta and the beach resorts. The country is like Kansas with a sea coast.

On the bright side, there are some interesting, rich, sophisticated people that live around Punta. Many of them are Argentines that moved across the border for tax or political reasons. Some people moved here simply because its a pleasant and quiet, albeit backward, little country. I guess thats my excuse for spending time here. Great place to catch up on reading, research, and writing.

I like it. But outside of the season its quiet. You have to amuse yourself.

Justin: It seems relatively safe, though.

Doug: Yes, its also a very low-crime location. In South America, the high-crime countries have always been Brazil and Colombia. Now add VenezuelaColombia is improving rapidly. The low-crime countries have always been Argentina, Uruguay, and Chile.

Plus, Uruguay is also, along with Chile, the least corrupt country in South America. You dont dare try to bribe a cop here. Thats out of the question.

In Argentina, which is just across the River Plate, its different story. I did an interview a couple years ago called Make Corruption Your Friend. I promise you, its worth reading. [Editors note: You can read both parts of Dougs interview...

Breaking In a New President "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

I recall how a friend of mine who once served as a senior Pentagon intelligence briefer described what he called breaking in a new president. Today, incoming presidents receive some intelligence briefings so that they do not land in office on a cold January day totally unprepared for what awaits them. But generally speaking, the real surprises are unveiled during the first week when they get the full classified briefings that are carefully prepared both to inform and to enhance the value of the agency doing the briefing. In the case of the Central Intelligence Agency, the most secret clandestine operations are revealed in power point to convince the new chief executive that the intelligence community is keeping the nation safe. The Pentagon for its part unveils flashy new weapons systems either about to come on line or being planned to demonstrate its ability to deter aggression from any source.

The thinking is that if you get the new president on board in his first few days he will be yours forever, signing off on budget increases year after year while also providing political cover when things go wrong. While the Defense Department and intelligence community benefit from the process and are frequently able to get the presidents ear because they are able to unveil some sensational secrets, other government agencies also competing for dollars do not have that appeal and do not do so well. State Department, for example, rarely makes much of an impression because its work is basically prosaic.

The systematic attempts to get the president on ones side inevitably are more successful with chief executives lacking experience in government as they have nothing to measure the power points they are seeing against. President George H. W. Bush, emerging from years spent as a naval officer, a congressman and CIA Director, is unlikely to have been much influenced by a briefing. President Bill Clinton, harboring a negative perception about CIA, did not even see his Director James Woolsey for over a year. But, on balance, most new presidents are willing to be seduced by the inside-the-Beltway establishment as represented by the Pentagon and the intelligence community.

Donald Trump in particular appears to have succumbed, deferring to generals and intelligence chiefs much more often than not, but he has also taken the message of American omnipotence too much to heart. Trump, with no military or government experience, defers to the national security advocates without any sense of the hard reality that all actions have consequences.

The Pentagon is still planning for a military parade in Washington on Veterans Day in November, a huge waste of resources that will do little more than stroke the presidential ego. And the open admiration for the armed forces makes it easy for Trump to think first of using weapons and coercion instead of diplomacy, to launch cruise missiles and endorse an admitted torturer as the new CIA Chief.

The MPGe Scam "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Youve no doubt heard the joke. About how your actual mileage will  . . . vary.

Everyone knows this means: Expect to get less than whatever the EPA advertises on the new car window sticker. But in the EPAs defense, at least the city and highway numbers were used to seeing are comprehensible. And within a roughly 10 percent margin of error they correspond with on-the-road reality.

Your car might not get the advertised 35 MPG on the highway. But it wont be 15 MPG. Not unless you punch a hole in the gas tank.

Then theres this MPGe business thats beginning to show up on new car window stickers. On the stickers of plug-in hybrids which all of a sudden everyone seems to be selling.

Your mileage will really vary.

106 MPGe! (Chevy Volt) 97 MPG! (Ford Fusion Energi) 74 MPGe! (Mercedes GLC350e).

These are spectacular claims not unlike those late-night TV miracle diet pill ads that promise youll drop 20 pounds a week.

Call now!

Lets dissect this scam the MPGe thing, I mean  and then get into the reasons for the scam. Actually, lets get into the reasons first. They center on the frantic on the part of the car manufacturers need to sell or at least get rid of plug-in hybrids and electric cars.

Frantic, because the car companies are forced to manufacture them not because of customer demand but because of the jihad being waged by the government against internal combustion via de jure zero emissions vehicle production mandates and de facto production mandates such as the fuel economy fatwas  which cannot be complied with absent the production of vehicles that dont use any fuel (well, any gas) either all the time (pure electric cars) or some of the time (plug-in hybrids).

These vehicles help with the averages  the Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) averages.

By adding e to the MPG mix.

In addition to the usual IC-engine city/highway figures, the electric mileage is factored in. It is computed as follows: 33.7 kilowatts of electricity is equivalent, in terms of energy, to a gallon of gas. Thus, an electric car or partial electric car (plug-in hybrid) that uses 29 kilowatt-hours every 100 miles of d...

The Long Captivity of Julian Assange "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

These long summer days are good for forest walks or swimming; in the evenings, I read classics with my 10 year old son who otherwise spends too much time at video games. This time, it happens to be the Odyssey, the poem I translated some 25 years ago, and yesterday I came to read Book IV on Menelaus bewailing his comrades who fell at Troy or on the perilous way home.

And for me it was the time to beweep my dear comrades-in-arms who have suffered the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune. So many of you, who went fighting the beast, are dead, or exiled, or imprisoned, like my Spanish publisher Don Pedro Varela and the American researcher Barrett Brown. Or fired from a university like Julio Pino, professor of Kent State.

And then Menelaus said: Much as I weep for all my men, for none of all these comrades do I grieve as much as for this one. The one is Ulysses who has been detained for years on the island of Ogygia by Calypso the Nymph.

It brought to my mind the fate of Julian Assange, this modern Odysseus, who has been held in his luxurious Knightsbridge prison for years. Actually, for full six years, as today, as I write it, is the anniversary of his incarceration in the Ecuador Embassy.

So many epithets used by Homer for the King of Ithaca fit Julian to a tee! He is wise and noble, resourceful and cunning, wily and crafty, brilliant and steadfast, but also evil-starred man of woe.

His name still scares the enemy, and cheers a friend. Though an Antipode by birth, Julian became famous in the North of Europe, where this tall slim handsome youthful silver-haired man came to raise the banner of his revolt. Eight years ago, I compared him to Neo of the Matrix, the man destined to break the matrix of lies and set us free.

The Amazing Adventures of Captain Neo in Blonde-Land, as no doubt the story of Julian Assanges escapades in Sweden will be known once it inevitably makes its way into the hands of one of the goofier Hollywood directors say Robert Zemeckis or Mel Brooks, or perhaps Stephen Herek of Bill & Teds Excellent Adventure. It would do better in the hands of Andy Wachowski, where he might do for Julian Assange what he once did for Keanu Reeves.

Who could ask for a more beautiful set-up? Its a story fit for a tabloid, yet it might be transformed into something an intellectual could read without embarrassment. This latest adventure is the stuff of pulp fiction, and chock full of Langley spies, computer hackers, crazy feminists, flatfooted cops and sleazy rags in the female kingdom of Sweden!

Julian Assange is a character that might have been ripped from the celluloid frames of the Matrix: flaxen and lanky, he moves thr...

The Illustrious Life of Pliny the Elder "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Gaius Plinius Secundus, better known in history as Pliny the Elder, was an influential administrator, officer, and author during his life.  Although he was only fifty-six years old at the time of his death, he left behind a great legacy of political respect and appreciation, as well as a reputation for being one of the strongest ancient Roman historians whose work survives to this day.  Though he was not overly appreciated during his own lifetime, the writing of this privileged military general provides much knowledge of Roman life, science, and philosophy.

Born in Como, Italy into a powerful and elite equestrian family (akin to knights), Pliny the Elder lived from 23 or 24 AD until August 24, 79 AD, the exact date of the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in Pompeii, in which Pliny met his final end. He had no children of his own and never married, more absorbed with his work, his writings, and travels.

In 35 AD, he traveled to Rome at the ripe young age of ten to be given a proper Roman education. There, he was taught the art of rhetoric and public speaking, both invaluable skills for someone from his wealthy upbringing. His tutelage served him well as he worked under Publius Pomponius Secundus, a renowned tragic poet who first introduced Pliny to the art of literature. Throughout the rest of his life (while on the road, and in between careers) Pliny worked tirelessly on a variety of written works.

Between the years 45 and 47 AD, Pliny found himself in Gallia Belgica as a military officer of the Roman forces, and later as leader of the cavalry. With the Roman army he widely toured the provinces, moving from Germany to the Mediterranean and possibly even to the British Isles. He aided in the defeat of such tribes as the Frisians of the lowlands of modern Germany and the Chauci between the rivers of Ems and Elbe.  During that time, he wrote a treatise on the German technique of throwing a spear while riding a horse, presumably to teach the skill to the Romans. He also wrote possibly the first Roman biography about his teacher, and later a twenty-one volume work on the Germanic wars.

Pliny the Elders phalera bears an inscription formed from punched dots: PLINIO PRAEF EQ; i.e., Plinio praefecto equitum, Pliny prefect of cavalry. It was perhaps issued to every man in Plinys unit. The figure is the...

Theyre Drinking the Cities Dry "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Russians are hoping the 2.5 million foreign guests who will visit their country for the football World Cup will come away with a new and better understanding of the place, but likewise Russians are sure to learn new things about the rest of the world. Specifically just how thirsty for beer the European football fandom is:

Of all the problems Russia expected to encounter while hosting the World Cup, a booze shortage was not one. But that is precisely what soccer fans are facing in Moscow and other cities hosting the tournament as high demand has caught suppliers by surprise.

Beer-guzzling fans risk drinking parts of Moscow dry, with some bars and restaurants in the Russian capital saying they are running low and having to wait longer than usual for fresh supplies.

We just didnt think they would only want beer, said one waiter at a upscale eatery in central Moscow who asked not to be identified for fear of scaring off future customers.

The waiter said his restaurant ran out of draft lager on Monday and deliveries are taking longer than usual, at least 24 hours, because suppliers stocks are also running low.

Although alcohol plays an important role in Russian cuisine and cultureand shortages are virtually unheard of beer is seen as simply not strong enough to make the grade. It was only reclassified from soft to alcoholic beverage in 2011.

In recent days, multiple reports from the host cities of Moscow, Kazan and Nizhny Novgorod suggested that cafes and bars around tournament venues are running low. Martin Freidman, security chief for the Swedish soccer assosciation (SvFF), said that fans of the Scandinavian nation were struggling to find places able to serve them a pint in Nizhny Novgorod, with a day to go until the teams opening match earlier this week, the Aftonbladet newspaper has reported.

In some places, (the beer) already finished yesterday, Fredman said on Tuesday. The city has never hosted anything like this before and that is why proprietors of bars have been caught by surprise.

Staff at both the capitals Gogol and El Asador, meanwhile, have said that the first World Cup weekends drinking required them to replenish fast, as one barman estimated soccer fans guzzled down around 800 liters of beer in just three days, downing the cheap lager before moving on to more expensive bottled beersEl Asador apparently ran out of beer on Friday and had to wait until Monday to stock up.

You would think bar owners, hospitality workers and beer suppliers would be abl...

Death by Regulation "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Most people believe government agencies like the Food and Drug Administration keep them safe. But a book by Dr. Mary J. Ruwart explodes this myth.

People often argue that without the protection of government agencies, we would face constant peril. Allegedly, without the FDA, our pharmacy shelves would be lined with unregulated products containing deadly substances, marketed by the unscrupulous.

Of course, this argument rests upon the unspoken assumption that the laws and regulations enforced by the FDA are benign, causing little or no harm, and few, if any, deaths. It also rests upon the assumption that, without government regulation, there are no market-based mechanisms for certifying the safety of drugs and products.

In her important new book, Death by Regulation: How We Were Robbed of a Golden Age of Health and How We Can Reclaim It, Dr. Ruwart provides information which thoroughly refutes these assumptions.

Dr. Ruwart holds a B.S. in biochemistry, a Ph.D. in biophysics and spent 19 years as a pharmaceutical research scientist for the Upjohn Company. She has also chaired an IRB (Institutional Review Board), consulted with nutraceutical companies and been an expert witness against the FDA. Therefore, she is intimately familiar with the impact of the FDA and the laws and regulations it enforces. Her easily digestible book focuses specifically upon the detrimental impact of the 1962 Amendments to the 1938 Food and Drug Act (the Amendments).

Dr. Ruwart reviews the burdensome effects of the Amendments, including a lengthening of the average period for new drug development from approximately four years to 14 years. She explains the numerous additional requirements set forth in the Amendments, and the additional development time caused by them and provides heartbreaking examples of the effect of this wait time on those with life-threatening illnesses.

For example, she discusses how, in the early years of the AIDS epidemic, United States AIDS patients often had to travel to other countries with fewer regulatory requirements to obtain new therapies still unapproved by the FDA, sometimes having the drugs confiscated upon reentry to the United States. She further discusses black market AIDS Buyers Clubs which quickly formed in response to the need for therapies and hired chemists to make drugs undergoing development, in violation of pharmaceutical companies patents. She also points out that, although making, selling and distributing these drugs without FDC approval violated the law, the FDA often took no action against most violators, especially those in California who were well organized and vocal, and that instead the FDA selectively prosecuted t...

Want Your Heart to Repair Its Damage and Grow Stronger? "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Pensioners should drink four cups of coffee a day to protect and repair their heart muscle, research suggests.

Levels of caffeine, equivalent to drinking four cups of coffee, could help to protect healthy blood vessels and repair the heart after a heart attack, a study claims.

The stimulant boosts a protein known to be important in regenerating heart cells, and which could also protect them from damage.

Caffeine is thought to lower the risk for diseases such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and stroke, but the reasons for this are not well understood.

German researchers now think caffeine may make cells which line the arteries and veins healthier, improving their ability to resist or recover from damage.

The scientists say their findings should lead to better strategies for protecting heart muscle, and another expert called the results very interesting.

They suggest caffeine could particularly benefit elderly people, whose hearts may be naturally weaker and more at risk of damage.

Research by Heinrich-Heine-University and the IUF-Leibniz Research Institute for Environmental Medicine in Dusseldorf, Germany, discovered the health-boosting effects of caffeine on heart cells.

They found the drug which is also found in tea and soft drinks like Coca Cola improves the function of cells lining the heart and blood vessels.

It does this by encouraging the movement of a vital protein called p27 into the cells.

Caffeine also strengthens mitochondria, which give cells their energy, so they are more able to keep cells healthy and protect them, the study says.

Caffeine protects the hearts of ageing, pre-diabetic and obese mice

The research, done on mice, showed caffeine protected the hearts of pre-diabetic, obese and old mice.

The researchers suggest it could offer the same benefits to elderly people, whose hearts are more at risk of damage and may have weaker cells.

Study author Professor Judith Haendeler said: Our results indicate a new mode of action for caffeine, one that promotes protection and repair of heart muscle.

These results should lead to better strategies for protecting heart muscle from damage, including consideration of coffee consumption or caffeine as an additional dietary factor in the elderly population.

America First? Polling Shows It's Trudeau First Over Trump "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"


Want to drive Trumpanzee up a wall? Every poll should ask, who do you like more, Trump or Canadian Prime Minister JustinTrudeau? Trump is completely, obsessively jealous of Trump, because Trudeau is intelligent, well-spoken, handsome, with it, fashionable and vigorous, while Trump is... well, none of those things. (And rumors are that both Melania and Ivanka went completely "gah gah" over Trudeau.) The one poll that was done, by Ipsos shows that both Canadians and Americans prefer, as you can see above, Trudeau's approach to trade over Trump's approach.

Now a new poll by the Canadian polling firm, Campaign Research "revealed that 81% of Canadians disapproved of Donald Trumps performance as the President of the U.S, a 5% increase from September 2017. Those who showed the highest level of disapproval were females (86%), as well as members of the Liberal Party of Canada (LPC) (91%) and the New Democratic Party of Canada (NDP) (93%).

America, We Need to Talk About the Last Ten Days "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

(Why) The House of Democracy is on Fire

Dear America,

You know when someone says, we need to talk? This is going to be one of those chats. I wont pretend its not going to be painful. But I will own up and say: you need to hear what I am going to tell you.

We need to talk about the events of the last ten days. What they mean for you, your kids, your society, and its future. And I dont mean any of this in a judgmental way. Only in the way of quiet observance, and gentle understanding. I know that youre numb and fatigued and shocked, and that you havent processed them yet. Lets start here.

Over the last few years, here are a few things youve normalized. Regular school shootings, to the point that little kids are traumatized by active shooter drills. People dying for a lack of basic medicine, like insulinwhich doesnt happen even in the worlds poorest countries. Young people that cant afford to have families, or homes of their own. Old people who live in their cars, unable to retire, chasing seasonal work at Amazon and Walmart. Childbirth costing half of an average persons incomeand healthcare the other half. People living in indignity, squalor, and despair, but the rich growing vastly richer, as a resultwhich intellectuals and economists cheer on, as it if were somehow worthy to profit from the suffering of a nation. And a media which fails to understandand thus explaineven that much.

You have normalized social collapse, in other words.

But in the last ten days, something new and very different happened. Something darker still. Tent cities in which child migrants who were separated from their familiesor, without the doublespeak: concentration camps for infantswhere kids werent allowed to hug each other, be touched, be soothed, or be cared for in basic ways. The world was aghast. The UN called it a major human rights violation. They are being polite. It was a voyage to the very brink of genocideone of whose definitions is child separationand back.

Now you are crossing a very, very dangerous line. Im sure you sense it. Whats the difference between the stuff on my first listpeople dying for a lack of insulin, etceteraand the second one, concentration camps for kids? There is a differenceanyone can see that much. But what is it, precisely?The line you are crossing now is the one between collapse and implosion.

Collapse is a result of inaction. Of negligence. But implosion is a result of action. Of malice, of construction, of careful, deliberate havoc. A house might collapse if you dont care for its foundations. But a house can only implode if you set fire to it, or bomb it. And that is what is happening to you right now, America.

When people die for a lack of insulin, kids shoot each other in schools, retirement becomes an impossi...

Nutzoids are STILL jabbering on about a Putin-Trump-Nazi apocalypse "IndyWatch Feed World"

I don't know about you, but I'm getting a little tired of waiting for the Hitlerian nightmare that the corporate media promised us was coming back in 2016. Frankly, I'm beginning to suspect that all their apocalyptic pronouncements were just parts of some elaborate cocktease. I mean, here we are, a year and half into the reign of the Trumpian Reich, and, well, where are all the concentration camps, the SS units with their death's head insignia, the Riefenstahlian parades and rallies? Trump hasn't even banned the Democratic Party, or annexed Canada, or invaded Mexico, or made anybody wear color-coded armbands. If he doesn't start Hitlering relatively soon, the oracles of the corporate media are going to have some serious explaining to do. I don't think I'm overreacting. After all, back in 2016, The Guardian promised us an "Age of Darkness," and the end of "civilized order" as we know it. "Globalization is dead, and white supremacy has triumphed," one of its more hysterical pundits proclaimed. "Donald Trump is actually a fascist," Michael Kinsley assured us in The Washington Post. Charles Blow of The New York Times warned that Trump's election was "the beginning of the end," the descent of the republic into "racial Orwellianism," whatever that's supposed to mean. Thomas Friedman called it "a moral 911." Paul Krugman predicted nothing short of "a global recession with no end in sight." Jonathan Chait, after heroically vowing not to flee the country with his terrified family, but to stay and fight to the bitter end, guaranteed us that the "monster," Trump, would "shake the republic to its foundations."

Google has officially entered into the podcatching space with a new Android-only app called Google Podcasts.

The app has the typical sorts of offerings when it comes to the more furnished dedicated podcatching apps out there such as a mosaic of top choices, a trending section and search. Google Podcasts syncs across all devices from Google Home to Android phones and tablets, letting users continue from where they left [off]. Specific to Google is a suggestion feature powered by Google Assistant that will proffer other shows in the same genre or on the same network.

Two competitors are Apple Podcasts and Pocket Casts.

Suddenly, the podcast management/discovery competition heats up:

Pocket Casts, the incredibly popular podcast application, announced today that it is opening up a public beta program for Android users. This will allow any interested user access to the app's newest features, with the caveat that builds might be broken or unstable. If you'd like to sign up for the public beta on Android, you can do so at this Google Play link.

[...] It's likely not a coincidence that this announcement comes on the heels of Google's introduction of its own app, called Google Podcasts.

The Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs together with other interested Russian departments (including security forces) seeks to avert the threat of the world's use of biological weapons. In some areas there is a positive trend. Thus, Moscow and Yerevan are discussing the possibility of signing an agreement on cooperation in the field of biological research, which will open access for Russian specialists to the US laboratories in Armenia.

The National Endowment for Democracy's useful idiots "IndyWatch Feed World"

On Friday, June 8, MSNBC's Rachel Maddow augmented her nightly Russiagate fetish by extolling the merits of the National Endowment for Democracy (NED), telling her huge audience that the NED, created in the 1980s by the Ronald Reagan administration, still does the "non-partisan hard work around the world, of promoting small D democracy and promoting the institutions of civil society that any culture needs in order to have a functioning democracy." By Wednesday, June 13, at least one progressive writer, Bill Berkowitz, had challenged Maddow's viewpoint on NED as "naive". He wrote: "Whatever else can be said about the NED and its affiliated organizations, it is hard to back up Maddow's naive claim about its work re 'promoting small D democracy.' Because amid whatever success it may have had, the NED is also notable for supporting anti-democratic organizations, and contributing to the overthrow of democratically elected governments. Along the way, it has provided a glut of disinformation, misinformation, and downright fake news in pursuit of its mission." [1]

Someone Threw This Tiny Kitten Onto A Busy Highway And Left Him There "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

A woman was driving along a Los Angeles freeway when she noticed something furry huddled up in the carpool lane and was horrified when she realized it was a tiny kitten. Unable to go back or pull over without causing an accident, the woman quickly contacted Hope for Paws, hoping that they could get to the poor kitten before it was too late. 

As soon as they got the text, Hope for Paws rescuers Eldad Hagar and Loreta Frankonyte, who were on their way back from another rescue, quickly drove out to the spot on the freeway that the woman had described. They spotted the kitten as they were passing him, and were able to safely pull over next to an exit. They knew they had to act quickly in order to rescue the kitten, as traffic was zooming by all around him.

Once we were ready, Loreta Frankonyte and I broke into the freeway and stopped traffic completely, Hagar wrote in a video about the rescue. Not knowing the kitten's state of mind, I told Loreta I will approach from the front so he can see me, and she will surprise him from behind. 

Following the plan, Frankonyte quickly came up behind the kitten

Firefighters Notice Something Strange Wandering Around Near Station "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

Putting the lid back on a jar before tossing it in the trash could save an animals life   just ask one lucky fox, appropriately named Miracle.

Earlier this month, firefighters with the Pasco County Fire Department in Florida saw firsthand why this simple act is so important when an unusual visitor showed up on their doorstep asking for help.

Firefighter Joseph Skanks was working out in the bay of Pasco Fire Rescue Station 26 when he caught a glimpse of a very young fox with a plastic tub stuck around his head.

Credit: Facebook/Pasco County Fire Rescue

Skanks followed the fox, but when he tried to get closer, the animal scurried off into the bushes behind the station. It wasnt unusual to see foxes loitering around the tree line behind the station but Skanks had never seen one in such a dire predicament.

About five to 10 years ago, the station was really in the middle of nowhere, Corey Dierdorff, public information officer for the Fire Rescue Department, told The Dodo. Over the years, there has been a lot of development, and growth is really booming in the area, so its not uncommon to see animals out there all the time. They see eagles every once and a while, and raccoons, foxes and deer right behind the station and around the neighborhood.

With their habitat shrinking, the areas wildlife is coming into contact with all sorts of strange new items, including refuse such as old mayonnaise and peanut butter jars.

When the fox appeared a second time just outside the station, Skanks decided that he needed to bring in reinforcements.

He went and grabbed a couple of guys, and said, You wont believe whats going on outside. Theres a fox over here with a mayonnaise jar on [his] head, Dierdorff said. So they go out and try to catch him by hand, and he scurries off into the woods.

And so began a frustrating game of hide-and-seek....

Cool birds dont sing: Study automates acoustic monitoring of songbird migration "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

Its June, and migratory songbirds in the northern hemisphere are at their summer breeding grounds, having traveled thousands of miles from their warm-weather overwintering areas. Birds migrate as far north as the Arctic to take advantage of its large but short-lived surge in insect food and its few predators. The timing of their arrival is critical because their breeding cycles must match seasonal food availability for their chicks to survive. Migratory Lapland longspurs endure the cold en route to their breeding grounds. Image by Andy Reago & Chrissy McClarren, CC 2.0 Scientists have shown that as spring temperatures rise, many bird populations are, in fact, migrating north and arriving earlier in the season at their breeding sites, where climate-related shifts in breeding-ground conditions, including environmental conditions and food availability, may help or hinder reproduction of individual species. Most songbirds are too small to carry GPS tracking tags scientists would typically use to follow their migrations north, but they do call intensely once they arrive there in preparation for breeding. To study trends in migration timing, scientists have begun setting out microphones to listen for particular species or the bird diversity at specific sites. Placing numerous relatively inexpensive acoustic listening devices in the field allows researchers to better monitor wildlife communities in remote places and across larger scales than field surveys typically can. Gambels white-crowned sparrows, like this one, prefer woody shrubs. As the Arctic continues to warm, shrubs on Alaskas North Slope are expected to overtake open grasslands. That could

Parrot Spent 15 Years In A Cage Eating Nothing But Peanuts "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

For the first 15 years of his life, Rascal lived in a tiny cage in a basement. He wasnt being fed on a regular basis, and when he was fed, he was given only peanuts, which are not part of a healthy diet for a parrot. Birds of a Feather Parrot Rescue of New Mexico found out about Rascal and asked his family to surrender him. The family agreed, but told the rescue Rascal was mean and loud, and they didnt think anyone would want him.

Credit: Birds of a Feather Parrot Rescue of New Mexico

As soon as Rascal arrived in their care, his rescuers realized just how wrong his family had been. While Rascal was timid and hesitant to trust, he was still incredibly friendly, and it seemed all he needed was the right environment in order to eventually thrive. 

The first day he came home he was quiet but friendly, Dorothy Newbill, director of Birds of a Feather Parrot Rescue, told The Dodo. He went to his first vet visit and was treated for bacterial and yeast infections, malnutrition and ingrown feathers. Even being poked and prodded, he was being sweet and patient with us.

Rascal was in pretty rough shape when his rescuers first got him. He had self-inflicted open wounds from being so stressed out, and his feathers were dry, crispy and falling off. He had naked patches all over his body, and the poor bird just seemed so defeated. His condition didnt stop him from being sweet with his new rescue family, though, and as the days went on and Rascal began to heal, his incredible personality began to shine through more and more.

Despite infinite variation in political thinking and being, there are four types of thinkers in our society; idiots, zealots, elitists and patriots.

One can observe there are four types of institutions as well; government, religious, corporate and media institutions, of many shades of variation. And there are the four types of lies those institutions use, to corrupt and control our thinking and being.

Government institutions corrupt culture. Religious institutions corrupt spirituality. Corporate institutions corrupt trade. Media institutions corrupt thinking. Today, such institutional corruption is rampant to the point that it has become unspoken normalcy, and speaking up to it is quietly viewed as disruption; dissent.

With no mother in sight, and the weather about to turn sour, Yost decided to rescue the seemingly stray kitten. He brought her home, fed her and introduced her to his family.

What Yost didnt realize, of course, was this was no house cat.

Yost made arrangements to have the kitten get a checkup with a vet. In the meantime, however, he began to notice that there was something a little off about this cat.

She kept making a loud sound Not like a normal meow, Yost said.

Acting on a hunch, Yost decided to search the internet for images of baby bobcats. And sure enough, his new kitten had many things in common with those wild cats: White triangles on back of ears, giant paws, markings on nose, etc., Yost said.

She also had an unusually short tail.

Supreme Court Just Ruled Against Warrantless Cellphone Tracking "IndyWatch Feed World"

In a decision that digital rights advocates called a groundbreaking victory for Americans privacy rights, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled on Friday that police generally must obtain a warrant before collecting cellphone records that can be used to track a persons movements.

The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), which represented the petitioner, predicted the historic win will have a ripple effect for privacy, particularly as it applies to data held by third parties. As the group explained in a series of tweets, It will help protect all sorts of digital information stored online, from emails to data from smart home appliances.

Nate Freed Wessler, the ACLU staff attorney who argued the case, discussed the ruling and what it could mean for future cases in a short video posted on Twitter:

Famed government whistleblower Edward Snowden tweeted the decision was a victory for ACLUand America.

Stupid Democrat Accuses Trump of Stealing Personal Items From Migrants Like at Auschwitz Doesnt Notice Photos Are From 2014 "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Rep. Jackie Speier (D-CA) is not known for her sharp wit or keen mind.

On Thursday Speier posted photos of rosaries, wallets, and toothpaste taken from illegal immigrants coming into the United States.
And she compared the tactics like something youd see at Auschwitz.

Rep. Jackie Speier: CBP takes away rosaries, shoes, wallets and toothbrushes from detained immigrants; what they call non-essential personal property. The images in these photos shockingly resemble the shoes collected from Auschwitz and its revolting and chilling.

The photos are heart-wrenching.

But like EVERYTHING else about this migrant child abuse story it is inaccurate and slanderous.

The photos were actually taken by artist Tom Keifer for his art exhibit El Sueo Americano that was launched in 2014 during the Obama presidency.

Once again, this is another atrocious hit piece on President Trump from actions during the Obama years.
