Taking advantage of young peoples passions "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

The world of professional sports takes great advantage of young peoples desire to be part of its glamor. The most egregious example is the way that so many colleges make so much money off student athletes while the students themselves never see any of it and often get a rotten education as well. The latest US Supreme Court decision striking down the bans on betting on sports is going to open the floodgates for a lot more money and plenty of groups are going to want a slice of that action and the only people who will be shut out are the student athletes. The problem is that there are many young people who love sports so much or hope to someday be part of the tiny minority who make it in the professional leagues that there is no shortage of people who can be exploited.

But there is another group that is also exploited and those are the cheerleaders for professional teams. Four years ago, I wrote about some cheerleaders for football teams who complained about how badly they were treated. Like the student athletes, these people love what they do and enjoy performing for the crowds at the games and the TV audiences but the owners and the league administrators take advantage of their passion to pay them poorly and treat them badly.

Now some of them are filing lawsuits.

Since 2014, five other NFL teams the Raiders, Buccaneers, Bengals, Jets, Bills, and one NBA team, the Bucks have faced lawsuits from their dancers, each alleging severe labor violations, and offering glances into the secretive and manipulative world of professional cheerleading: mandatory diets; forced beauty regimens paid out of pocket; countless hours of work for which the super-rich teams they cheered for refused to pay them. Perched atop of this mountain of alleged mistreatment, and riding the rocky aftermath of a recent New York Times story that revealed that in 2013 Washington cheerleaders were required to pose topless and act as unpaid escorts to the teams sponsors, Goodell chose not to meet face to face with Davis and Ware. He sent his lawyers instead.

While much of the focus has been on NFL cheerleaders, rampant mistreatment of dancers appears to be endemic to the NBA as well. I know the NBA has the same problems because I hear from them, said Blackwell. NBA cheerleaders, like their NFL counterparts, are often required to sign arbitration agreements, which force employees claiming damages into highly confidential settlement talks. Often, said Blackwell, when employees settle i...

Is the first rule of science communication Be mealy-mouthed? "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

Hot on the heels of The Sun, here comes Newsweek, touting that drivel about cephalopods from space by Steele et al.. I have dispensed enough scorn for that paper lately, so now Im going to snarl at a few other targets: some of the critics.

Outside experts are unconvinced by the findings. Avi Loeb, the Frank B. Baird Jr. Professor of Science at Harvard University, told Newsweek the paper raised an interesting but controversial possibility.

Oh, fuck that noise. Thats the polite reservation of a privileged professor who would rather not offend a peer. It was not interesting. There is nothing interesting about the hypothesis. This is antique bullshit biology by a dead astronomer who knew nothing of the subject, and its been kicked around for years by his (ma)lingering acolytes. It is not compatible with any of the evidence, and it doesnt even make sense: it contradicts all the available evidence.

It is also not controversial. It is fucking wrong. I know it goes against years of science training, which tells everyone to fudge and hem and haw and avoid saying anything that might someday be used to say you were wrong about something, but get over it. Learn to speak plainly and honestly. This kind of dim politesse is exactly what allows science denialists to misquote you.

However, it offers no indisputable proof that the Cambrian explosion is the result of panspermia, he said.

Aaargh. First day of my introductory biology course, where I talk about the basic principles of science, the first thing I tell them is that THERE IS NO PROOF IN SCIENCE. We deal in probabilities, in consilience, in building an evidential case to strongly support a hypothesis, and everything is provisional.

The problem with the squid panspermia hypothesis isnt that there is no proof, its that there is no evidence. None. The dithering pontifications in the paper in question are all evidence-free speculations based on wishful misinterpretations of inappropriately collected and interpreted data.

I bet that Harvard professor would say exactly the same thing over a beer at the local bar with his colleagues, but put em in front of a journalist and suddenly all of their well-earned confidence turns into cautious cowardice.

And thus do all the phony hucksters and pseudoscientists thrive in the loamy fertilizer of tepid, timid compost dribbling from the jaws of hesitant academics.

Julian is not wanted because hes a spy, or even because he published a number of documents whose publication was inconvenient for certain people. He is wanted because he is so damn smart, which makes him very good and terribly effective at what he does. Hes on a most wanted list not for what hes already published, but for what he might yet publish in the future. He built up WikiLeaks into an organization that acquired the ultimate trust of many people who had access to documents they felt should be made public. They knew he would never betray their trust. WikiLeaks has to date never published any documents that were later found out to be false.

One of the young Israeli men who were picking fights with young Palestinian men on the ancient streets of East Jerusalem a few days ago, assured a BBC journalist that there were no Palestinians in the city or anywhere in Israel for that matter in fact there were no Palestinians anywhere, they had never existed. There were only a bunch of Arab troublemakers. The young Israeli mans argument was bolstered by a 2010 book entitled The Complete History of the Palestinian People by Dr. Marcus Rose who follows what seems to be a perfectly sensible table of contents with eight blank pages...

May Is Mental Health Month: What To Read. "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

For a list of good reading having to do with mental and emotional health, head over to Rumpus. Im not big on special days or months, they rarely penetrate most peoples skulls, but this is a timely reminder to be more mindful to others. In that vein, Ill leave you with this video by The Amity Affliction. Its harsh, but its a damn good reminder to make every effort not to be an oblivious ass. (Added the follow up song.)

The Amity Affliction -All Fucked Up.

The Amity Affliction I Bring the Weather With Me. (Lyrics below the fold.)

Its time to lay my head down
I can hear the weeping song
There are sirens in the distance
As the church bells sound along
Mourning ushers in the rain
Clouds are heavy like their hearts
I sing to them their weeping song
Until their world is dark

We are all stars in the sky
We all shimmer then decay
So I wonder did I burn out, make a mark
Or fade away?

Will you miss me when Im gone?
(I am the storm that never leaves)
Will you miss me when Im gone?
(I bring the weather with me.)

Im the ship in the bottle
Rain pouring down on me
I sing songs for my funeral
That I will never see
You were my shining light
Oh, you were heaven sent
But now Im not afraid of leaving
Not of God, and not of Death.

We are all stars in the sky
We all shimmer then decay
So I wonder did I burn out, make a mark
Or fade away?

Will you miss me when Im gone?
(I am the storm that never leaves)
Will you miss me when Im gone?
(I bring the weather with me.)

Ill sleep with the stars tonight.

Shepard Ambellas: Twitter just said I was a bot then forced a data scrape of my iPhone "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

(INTELLIHUB) In what can only be presumed to be a audacious act of extortion, Twitter appeared to have allowed Google to force a data scrape of Intellihub Founder and Editor-In-Chief Shepard Ambellass iPhone by holding his account features hostage early Sunday morning following several racy tweets made by Ambellas in regards to the Las Vegas Shooting.

It all started when the highly-popular and extremely controversial alternative media guru tweeted the following late Sunday night: In this story you will find that the man on a mission is likely also tied to communications from the night of the #LasVegasShooting! #MKULTRA #CIA #PSYOP #GunControl

Shep quickly followed up with another tweet which read: Let that sink in.

Twitter jumped in Sunday morning and issued a pop-up message that took over Ambellass smartphone screen altogether. The message read Weve temporarily limited some of your account features.

How Costa Rica Gets It Right "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

SAN JOS With authoritarianism and proto-fascism on the rise in so many corners of the world, it is heartening to see a country where citizens are still deeply committed to democratic principles. And now its people are in the midst of trying to redefine their politics for the twenty-first century. Over the years, Costa Rica, a country of fewer than five million people, has gained attention worldwide for its progressive leadership. In 1948, after a short civil war, President Jos Figueres Ferrer abolished the military. Since then, Costa Rica has made itself a center for the study of conflict resolution and prevention, hosting the United Nations-mandated University for Peace.

Intel to Spend $5 Billion on Fab in Israel, Likely to Produce 10nm Chips "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

Intel Discloses Plans to Spend $5 Billion on Fab 28 Expansion in Israel

Intel and two Israeli ministries this week announced that the chip giant plans to invest $5 billion in its Kiryat Gat fab complex Fab 28 through 2020. Under the plan, Intel is expected to buy various products from local suppliers and hire additional personnel. In return, Israel will provide the processor maker a tax rebate and a government grant. Furthermore, Intel will receive another grant if it upgrades its manufacturing in Israel further.

Under the terms of the investment plan, Intel will invest $5 billion (NIS 18 billion) in its Kiryat Gat ventures until 2020. The chip giant is expected to buy $838 million (NIS 3 billion) worth of local goods and add 250 people to its workforce, reports The Times of Israel citing the Finance Ministry. If the plan is approved by the Israeli authorities, Intel will get a 5% tax rebate till 2027, as well as a $195.5 million (NIS 700 million) government grant. Additionally, if Intel decides to "significantly upgrade" its fab "technologically", the company will get another $195.5 million grant.

Intel's first "10nm" CPU will be the i3-8121U, a dual-core part which will be featured in the Lenovo Ideapad 330. Due to low yields on the "10nm" process, a few Cannon Lake CPUs will be released in 2018 alongside "14nm" Whiskey Lake. Both microarchitectures are considered to be "8th-generation" (hence the '8' in "i3-8121U").

A Judas Will Appear In the Alt Media to Lead Us Astray "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

In my former days as a college basketball coach, I became very adept at analyzing my opponent by becoming familiar with the tactics and strategies of opposing coaches. I would look for their relative strengths and weaknesses. I would subsequently study how they might potentially employ their strengths against my team. When I felt I had a good model, I would employ anticipatory strategies, usually two or three, which were all designed to counter the anticipated threat. This approach to preparation is similar to what organizations like the Naval War College will engage in. Enemy strategies are anticipated and game planned for.

I bring these strategies to light because I think it is prudent, in the present time to employ this type of analysis and preparation to our fight against the globalists. Are there patterns that they follow that we can presently discern and reasonably expect them to employ in the near future? I think that there are.

Past Behavior Is the Best Predictor of Future Action

When I was coaching, I constructed and maintained a notebook on all coaches that I ever competed against. I wanted to know their tendencies, and subsequently, their coaching style. Since I sought to know my opponent as well as they knew themselves, I would begin by looking for patterns that they have employed in the past.

I have begun to do the same with the globalists and there are patterns that they follow.

We need to keep in mind that the globalists have no hesitation to kill millions in anticipation of lessening the opposition to a desired globalist goal. The wars that have killed millions are the most obvious case in point. Brzezinski, stated a few years before his death, that it used to be easier to control a million people than kill a million people. He modified this statement and said, today, it is easier to kill a million rather than to control a million.

Bombshell: Doxxed FBI Trump spy also spied on Carter Admin while a campaign aide for Regan "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

WASHINGTON (INTELLIHUB) Doxxed FBI Trump spy Stefan A. Halper also spied on the Jimmy Carter Administration while he was working as a Ronald Reagan Campaign aide, according to an archived 1983 report out of the New York Times.

The report, titled Reagan aides describe operation to gather inside data on Carter explains:

An operation to collect inside information on Carter Administration foreign policy was run in Ronald Reagans campaign headquarters in the 1980 Presidential campaign, according to present and former Reagan Administration officials.

Those sources said they did not know exactly what information the operation produced or whether it was anything beyond the usual grab bag of rumors and published news reports. But they said it involved a number of retired Central Intelligence Agency officials and was highly secretive.

The sources identified Stefan A. Halper, a campaign aide involved in providing 24-hour news updates and policy ideas to the traveling Reagan party, as the person in charge. Mr. Halper, until recently deputy director of the State Departments Bureau of Politico-Military Affairs and now chairman of the Palmer National Bank in Washington, was out of town today and could not be reached. But Ray S. Cline, his father-in-law, a former senior Central Intelligence official, rejected the account as a romantic fallacy.

Here is the actual article out of the newspaper.

Socialist Britain will not be ripped off any more under Labour "IndyWatch Feed War"

Britains main opposition Labour Party wants to radically transform the economy, forming a Socialist society where were not going to get ripped off any more, its finance policy chief, John McDonnell, said on Sunday.

With Labour almost neck-and-neck in the polls with the governing Conservatives, who lost their majority in last years election, its leader Jeremy Corbyn and others are setting out their stall ahead of a new election not due until 2022.

Image result for John McDonnell,, Labour, photos

FILE PHOTO: Britains Shadow Finance Minister John McDonnell, speaks as he sets out Labours demands for the Spring Statement, in London, Britain, March 9, 2018.

McDonnell told the BBC that he had been talking to business leaders to offer them clarity on Labours policies.

Some of them you will like and some of them you wont like, I accept that, but there is nothing up my sleeve, he said of his message, adding: Youll get a fair rate of return but were not going to be ripped off any more, simple as that.

Asked about his entry in the Whos Who directory of influential people which lists his passion for generally fomenting the overthrow of capitalism, he said it was a joke about beer-making.

But he added: Its (about) transforming our economy.

I dont think there is (a difference with overthrowing capitalism) because I think at the end of the day I want a Socialist society and that means transforming in a way which radically challenges the system as it now is.

He also said Venezuela, which is reeling from hyperinflation and shortages, was not a Socialist country.

I think it took a wrong turn when (late leader Hugo) Chavez went, and I think unfortunately since then I dont think they have been following the Socialist policies that Chavez was developing.

Behind the Iron Curtain part 7 Racism "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

These are my recollections of a life behind the iron curtain. I do not aim to give perfect and objective evaluation of anything, but to share my personal experiences and memories. It will explain why I just cannot get misty eyed over some ideas on the political left and why I loathe many ideas on the right.


In this particular case, much of what I know now I did not even remotely see or experience as a child and I only learned about it later on. Further, I must first state my bias.

My experiences with Romani people were overwhelmingly negative throughout my life, behind the Iron Curtain as well as afterward. I am in no way an objective and dispassionate observer on this matter.

First experience was at the age of approximately 10 years when the merry-go-rounds were in town. I have met a slightly younger Romani boy who was totally downcast because he did not have money for any of the attractions. I offered to lend him 10 crowns (which was a lot). We agreed that he will give me the money back one crown at a time whenever he gets pocket-money and we went on and had loads of fun together that day. He only returned the first crown and his mother has seen him doing so. I have seen her to tell him something very loudly afterwards, but I did not hear what it was. However, next time he only offered threats of violence. After he pulled out a knife on me, I stopped politely asking and avoided him altogether. It was first time someone has betrayed my trust and I could not make sense of it.

(That same boy has tried later to rob a newspaper stand, was caught by police and subsequently beaten by his mother. Allegedly not for trying to steal, but for being caught, which given my experience I unfortunately find believable. At the age around thirteen he attempted to rape a woman near a disco club who fended him off. I have no idea what became of him afterward, I have never heard about him since.)

Second instance was the age of twenty-five. Not having learned my lesson, when a Romani employee at the company I worked for asked me if I would be so kind as to lend him some money for he had run out and he needs to buy diapers for his children, I obliged. On payday, when he was due to give the money back as agreed, he offered me threats of violence.

Third instance, at the same employer, was a conflict with Romani fork-lift driver whom I caught drunk on the job. I tried to be nice and told him politely that he cannot drive fork-lift in this state and should go home to sleep it off. He started to get agitated, my attempts at de-escalating the situation totally failed and he assaulted me. Afterward I was being told that it was all my fault for not being nice enough to an aggressive drunkard. My today position is that I should have called police straightaway and not try to pussyfoot around someone breaking the law....

Internet of Laundry Let the ESP8266 Watch Your Dirty Drawers Get Clean "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

When you think of world-changing devices, you usually dont think of the washing machine. However, making laundry manageable changed not only how we dress but how much time people spent getting their clothes clean. So complaining about how laborious our laundry is today would make someone from the 1800s laugh. Still, we all hate the laundry and [Andrew Dupont], in particular, hates having to check on the machine to see if it is done. So he made Laundry Spy.

How do you sense when the machine either a washer or a dryer is done? [Andrew] thought about sensing current but didnt want to mess with house current. His machines dont have LED indicators, so using a light sensor wasnt going to work either. However, an accelerometer can detect vibrations in the machine and most washers and dryers vibrate plenty while they are running.

The four-part build log shows how he took an ESP8266 and made it sense when the washer and dryer were done so it could text his cell phone. Hed already done a similar project with an Adafruit HUZZAH. But he wanted to build in some new ideas and currently likes working with NodeMCU. While he was at it he upgraded the motion sensor to an LIS3DH which was cheaper than the original sensor.

Oklahoma and Kansas Enact Anti-LGBT Laws "IndyWatch Feed World"

(HRW) In 2018, dozens of anti-LGBT bills have been introduced in state legislatures across the US. Remarkably, none of them have become law until now.

Over the past week, Governor Mary Fallin of Oklahoma and Governor Jeff Colyer of Kansas have signed laws allowing state-funded adoption and foster care agencies to follow their religious beliefs when placing children with families.

Proponents of the bills clearly signaled that they were designed to prevent agencies from having to place kids with LGBT parents, who are six times more likely than heterosexual couples to foster and four times more likely to adopt. Now agencies in these states can effectively derail adoptions for LGBT parents. But the language in the bills is so sweeping that it seems to give agencies even wider discretion to disfavor potential parents based on their marital status, religion, race, or other characteristics.

Even without these laws, nobody is forcing agencies in Oklahoma and Kansas to serve LGBT parents; the states are among the 42 states in the US that do not have laws on the books protecting LGBT people seeking to adopt or foster children. These laws are not narrow exceptions to nondiscrimination protections, but a license to discriminate that harms parents and kids alike.

The states overriding concern in matters of adoption and foster care should always be the best interest of the child. Laws that embolden providers to discriminate against loving, qualified parents have been a giant step in the wrong direction.

Oklahoma and Kansas should repeal these laws. But if lawmakers truly believe what they say about these laws being narrow protections for religious agencies, they should have no hesitation about passing nondiscrimination laws next year. When lawmakers rush to pass exemptions to nondiscrimination laws that dont actually exist, without protecting the rights of people who are likely to be harmed, it should be called out for what it is discrimination.

More Thoughts on the Poor Peoples Campaign "IndyWatch Feed War"

Rev. William Barber is the closet thing to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. that we have in our midst.
Prof. Cornell West on the PPCs Co-Founder

The Poor Peoples Campaign, modeled on MLKs original movement from fifty years ago, held its first rallies and direct actions this past Monday at 37 state capitals across the country. I was privileged to be arrested for blocking the roadway during the civil disobedience portion of our rally at the capitol building in Harrisburg, PA. These actions will continue every Monday for 40 days and culminate in a national mobilization at the nations capital in Washington, D.C. The campaign is non-partisan and politicians are not allowed on the platform.

The primary reason I joined the Poor Peoples Campaign and have encouraged others to do so is its potential for realizing basic structural change. So far, my personal experience with the PPC has been overwhelmingly positive. Hallmarks include dynamic leadership, superb organizational skills, a diverse membership and high morale. Ive also witnessed instances of MLKs beloved community when interacting with the members. And I agree with radical activist and writer Patrick Taylor that We need to articulate the moral foundations of our political positions.

There is, however, one caveat and I offer it with only the best of intentions. The PPC is tantalizingly close to taking, for me at least, the next logical step for reaching its potential. Along with its powerful moral message, theres a need to be explicit about how the class and power structure of capitalism is inextricably linked to the PPCs Four Evils of systemic racism, systemic poverty, ecological devastation and the cost of Americas war economy. Its not disparaging to either approach to advocate combining faith-based motives with a fact-based, political economy diagnosis of the problem. This symbiotic fusion would provide a formidable tool for advancing the PPCs objectives.

Doing so, would be entirely in keeping with Martin Luther Kings own political evolution. By 1966, when speaking to his staff, King offered some positive words about democratic socialism and then said, Youre really getting on dangerous ground here because youre messing around with the folks. You are messing around with the captains of industry. Two years later, in an interview with a NYTs reporter, King said In a sense you could say were involved with class struggle

This is why King was described as the most dangerous man in America. Jared Ball, writing for the Black Agenda Report described how Kings image has been sanitized (in Cornell Wests phrase, the Santa Clausification of King) when powerful forces came together to ensure that King would be separated from his anti-capitalist,...

According to Ridd, in an email to me: They gave me a set of new allegations a few days after the successful gofundme campaign in February and we have been fighting them ever since. They really hated that gofundme campaign as one would expect. Ridd wrote then: I am astonished, very relieved and most importantly incredibly grateful for the support. I would also particularly like to thank Anthony, Jennifer Marohasy, Jo Nova, Willie Soon, Benny Peiser and many others for getting the issue up on blogs and spreading the word.

Two Queen Victoria Statues Vandalised in #Montreal "IndyWatch Feed War"

Original anonymous communiqu by the Henri Paul* Anti-Monarchy Brigade, shared with subMedia.

Two Queen Victoria Statues Vandalised in Montreal

Original anonymous communiqu by the Henri Paul* Anti-Monarchy Brigade, shared with subMedia:

In advance of colonial Victoria Day holiday, two Queen Victoria statues are (again) vandalized in Montreal

Racist and imperialist legacy of the British Monarchy denounced

May 18, 2018, Montreal Days before the outdated and insulting Queen Victoria holiday, two landmark statues to Queen Victoria in Montreal were vandalized last night.

The Victoria Memorial in downtown Montreal (erected in 1872) as well the bronze statue on Sherbrooke Street (erected in 1900) at McGill University were both sprayed in red paint.

This action is rooted in opposition to colonialism and imperialism, and a dislike of the parasitic British monarchy (and all monarchies). We are also directly inspired by the recent vandalism (with green paint) of the same Queen Victoria statues in advance of St. Patricks Day this past March by the Delhi-Dublin Anti-Colonial Solidarity Bridage

These statues represent, to quote the Delhi-Dublin Anti-Colonial Solidarity Brigade, a legacy of genocide, mass murder, torture, massacres, terror, forced famines, concentration camps, theft, cultural denigration, racism, and white supremacy.

The Queen Victoria statues should come down and be placed in a museum as a historical artifact. Public statues and monuments should not represent oppression. The presence of Queen Victoria statues in Montreal is, to again quote the Delhi-Dublin Anti-Colonial Solidarity Brigade, an insult to Indigenous nations in North America (Turtle Island) and Oceania, as well as the peoples of Afric...

It's been Professor Jordan B. Peterson Week at the BBC (Radio 4 - Start the Week; Radio 3 - Free Thinking; Radio 2 - The Chris Evans Breakfast Show; and BBC 2 - The Daily Politics). 

The main structural difference between the two I heard - Start the Week and Free Thinking - was that Free Thinking was a one-against-one encounter (Philip Dodd v Jordan Peterson) while Start the Week was a four-against-one encounter (Tom Sutcliffe, Louise ONeill, Hashi Mohamed and Lawrence Wright v Jordan Peterson). Free Thinking, being fairer in its set-up, was the more interesting and enjoyable discussion. It was good to hear two minds grappling with each other. Start the Week left a much sourer taste in the mouth

WEC Singapore June 2018 "IndyWatch Feed World"

Unfortunately, the WEC in Singapore was tight on space. Seating was limited to 150 maximum because this was intended to be more for institutions and we booked it too late to get a bigger venue. Nevertheless, we will include a session on training how to trade with the arrays and reversals because 2018 is the staging ground of what is to come moving into 2020/2021 and the end of this current Economic Confidence Model turning point.

This shift in the Financial Capital of the World is significant. The collapse of the Euro is only beginning to unfold here in 2018 where the Monetary Crisis Cycle begins. We will be focusing on the pending debt crisis, the key levels to watch in all markets, and let the markets guide us through what appears to be a very crazy period just ahead.

Cambridge professor outed as FBI informant inside Trump campaign "IndyWatch Feed War"

A Cambridge professor with deep ties to American and British intelligence has been outed as an agent who snooped on the Trump presidential campaign for the FBI.

Multiple media outlets have named Stefan Halper, 73, as the secret informant who met with Trump campaign advisers Carter Page and George Papadopoulos starting in the summer of 2016. The American-born academic previously served in the Nixon, Ford and Reagan administrations.

The revelation, stemming from recent reports in which FBI sources admitted sending an agent to snoop on the Trump camp, heightens suspicions that the FBI was seeking to entrap Trump campaign aides. Papodopoulous has pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI, while Page was the subject of a federal surveillance warrant.

If the FBI or DOJ was infiltrating a campaign for the benefit of another campaign, that is a really big deal, President Trump tweeted Saturday, calling for the FBI to release additional documents to Congress.

The Halper revelation also shows the Obama administrations FBI began prying into the opposing partys presidential nominee earlier than it previously admitted.

Halpers sit-downs with Page reportedly started in early July 2016, undermining fired FBI Director James Comeys previous claim that the bureaus investigation into the Trump campaign began at the end of that month.

Halper made his first overture when he met with Page at a British symposium. The two remained in regular contact for more than a year, meeting at Halpers Virginia farm and in Washington, DC, as well as exchanging emails.

The professor met with Trump campaign co-chair Sam Clovis in late August, offering his services as a foreign-policy adviser, The Washington Post reported Friday, without naming the academic.

Clovis did not see the conversation as suspicious, his attorney told the paper but is now unset...

Jim Clapper Spying on Trump Was a Good Thing, 2233 "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

- Cerule - makers 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 morning, Im still reporting on: Jim Clapper Spying on Trump Was a Good Thing, 2233 Synopsis: Ok, this is really heating up nicely now. As of today, we now know from one of the kingpins of the coup attempt against President Trump, the Obama Director of National Intelligence, Jim Clapper, admitted that not only was there a spy inside the Trump campaign, but in his august opinion, putting a spy inside the Trump campaign was a good thing. Now, I just want to remind you, as we reported in #2225 on Monday. Clapper is deliberately trying to confuse the media, and hes being successful. The spy in London was a well-known old CIA guy named Stefan Halper. He was acting, not as a spy, because he wasnt in the Trump campaign. He was operating as an agent provocateur, who coordinated closely with FBI counterintelligence guy, Peter Stcrzok to create the insurance policy by trying to convince Carter Page and George Papadoupoulos both of whom he met with in London - to either spy for them, or at least connect up with Russian agents so then they could bust them and by association Trump for collusion. Apparently, neither scenario worked either of those two. Please go back and look at #2225 for additional details. The real Trump spy or two is desperately being protected by Clapper et al to this day. Ive got a good idea who at least one of the real Trump spies was, and heres a faint hint. His last name rhymes with disaster. Both Tucker and Hannity had great segments tonight on the Clapper admission.

(AFP PHOTO / POOL / Olivier Matthys)

A German newspaper reported on Sunday that diplomats from Britain, Germany, France, China and Russia will meet in Vienna on Friday to discuss next steps after the May 8 decision by U.S. President Donald Trump to pull out of a 2015 nuclear accord with Iran.

The Welt am Sonntag newspaper cited an unnamed senior EU official as saying that the diplomats would discuss a proposal for a new agreement between Iran and world powers that would be the same as the 2015 deal but with some additions to appease the United States.

These could include provisions to address U.S. concerns over Irans ballistic missile program and Tehrans support of armed groups in the Middle East, the source said.

We have to get away from the name Vienna nuclear agreement and add in a few additional elements. Only that will convince President Trump to agree and lift sanctions again, the senior EU official told the paper.

Such an agreement could in the future include financial aid for Iran, the report said.

But three EU sources who were part of negotiations to keep U.S. President Donald Trump from quitting the nuclear deal told Reuters later on Sunday that this was...

VIDEO: Pro-Palestinian Thugs Shut Down UCLA Speech on Armenian Genocide, Screaming Mother-F**King Armenian Flag "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

On Thursday night during an event highlighting the stories, history, and experiences of three different Middle Eastern indigenous communities Armenian, Jewish, and Kurdish at UCLA, students were harassed, attacked, and shouted down by Students for Justice in Palestine during their event.

The Palestinian protesters brought in blow-horns to shut down the speakers.

One Palestinian ripped down the Armenian and Israeli flags screaming, Mother f-king Armenian flag!

The protesters shut down the event for over 15 minutes until the campus police arrived.

The Washington Free Beacon reported:

Pro-Palestinian students at UCLA attacked a Lebanese Christian sharing the story of his grandparents survival of the Armenian genocide for white supremacy.

Police had to be called to a student event celebrating indigenous peoples Thursday evening, where members of Students for Justice in Palestine stormed the room and ripped down Armenian and Jewish flags.

Students Supporting Israel at UCLA hosted an event, Indigenous Peoples Unite, bringing together three speakers from the Armenian, Jewish, and Kurdish communities to talk about these peoples efforts in battling controversy, oppression, and revisionism.

One of the panelists, Dario Ouliguian, a second-year UCLA linguistics major who is vice president of the Lebanese club, shared his perspective about being a descendent of a survivor of the Armenian genocide. Ouliguian also heads the Alan D. Leve Center for Jewish Studies Student Advisory Board.

Activists from the anti-Israel group Students for Justice in Palestine interrupted Ouliguians story, with one student walking up to Ouliguian, ripping down the mother fking Armenian flag, and throwing Ouliguians notes aw...

Bari Weiss, official sycophant to Marie Antoinette "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

There are good reasons Im incapable of watching Bill Maher any more Id have to rip the big screen off the wall and throw it through that expensive big picture window in our living room. This week, he had Bari Weiss on, because of course those two are made for each other.

This week we opened the American embassy in Jerusalem which did cause a riot, as predicted, and of course people are blaming both sides, said Maher.

During the embassy opening, a taunting event all but designed to inflame tensions, Israeli forces brutally massacred at least 58 Palestinians protesting along the Gaza borderincluding women and children. Many were killed by sniper fire hundreds of yards away. Weiss, however, saw no connection between the protests and the embassy launch.

Bill, I love you, but the riots were not caused by the embassy move, said Weiss. Theyre not linked. When Hamas attacked Israel in 2008, when Hamas attacked Israel in 2012, when it attacked Israel in 2014, the embassy was in Tel Aviv all of those times They intentionally moved up the day so that it would coincide with the day of the embassy move so that we would all be disgusted and heartbroken when we saw this horrible split-screen of Ivanka Trump, looking like she was at a country club, next to poor, desperate people dying in Gaza.

The first line set me back. How can you blame both sides when one side is being gunned down by snipers, and the other is armed, at best, with rocks? When one side is killing children?

But Bari Weiss managed to top it. How horrible that the Palestinian people planned their protest strategically? Why didnt they schedule it for a day when it wouldnt make Ivanka Trump look bad?

Talk about missing the whole pointit reminds me of the furious complaints when Black Lives Matter protests inconvenience people. How dare they march where people would notice! Couldnt they just march down streets in the middle of nowhere that werent full of busy white people trying to get to a football game?

Just remember that Martin Luther King Jr. also protested strategically.

Let us remember not just Kings words, but also his actions. King was in his 20s when he helped coordinate the Montgomery bus boycott, which lasted more than a year and brought the city to its knees. Too often toda...

Is Gold Mine Next China-India Flash Point? "IndyWatch Feed War"

BEIJING: China has begun large-scale mining operations on its side of the border with Arunachal Pradesh where a huge trove of gold, silver and other precious minerals valued at about $60 billion has been found, a media report said on Sunday.

The mine project is being undertaken in Lhunze county under Chinese control adjacent to the Indian border, the Hong Kong-based South China Morning Post reported.

China claims Arunachal Pradesh as part of southern Tibet.

Projecting the mining operations as part of Chinas move to take over Arunachal Pradesh, the report said people familiar with the project say the mines are part of an ambitious plan by Beijing to reclaim South Tibet.

  • China has discovered a huge trove of gold, silver and other precious minerals on its side of the border
  • The mines could lead to a situation akin to another South China Sea, a report said
  • Mining activities would also lead to a rapid and significant increase in the Chinese population in the Himalayas


Chinas moves to lay claim to the regions natural resources while rapidly building up infrastructure could turn it into another South China Sea they said, it said.

The Post report, with inputs from local officials, Chinese geologists as well as strategic experts, comes less than a month after the first ever informal summit between Prime Minister Narendra Modi and President Xi Jinping that was aimed at cooling tensions to avert incidents like the Doklam military standoff last year.

The 73-day standoff marked a new low in bilateral ties.

Lhunze was in the news last October, just about two months after Doklam, when Xi in a rare gesture replied to correspondence from a herding family in Lhunze County underscoring Beijings claim to the area.

The family is based in Yumai, Chinas smallest town in terms of population located close to Arunachal Pradesh.

Xi thanked the father and his two daughters for their loyalty and contributions to China, and also urged the people of Lhunze to set down roots to develop the area for the national interest....

We've all heard by now about the massive leak of the personal data of three million Facebook users and friends when a personality app, myPersonality, was used to extract personal information. The data was then used by Cambridge Analytica as part of their election targeting efforts. Mark Zuckerberg testified before Congress, apologized for the breach, and blamed it on the app company that shared the data. His solution was to more carefully screen the thousands of other apps; Facebook recently banned 200 of them. But, like many times before, this was just the tip of the iceberg. We've just learned that intimate details about these three million users were freely available on the web for anyone to access for years, according to a New Scientist investigation.

Why Sex Isnt a Marketplace "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

Or, How Were Teaching Sad Young Men to End Up Hating Women Instead of Loving Themselves

They wouldnt need to shoot up schools if they werent sexually frustrated!! They hate women because women wont have sex with them!! Its womens fault, not theirs! Theres a surplus of low-status men! The sexual marketplace has failed them!! So cries the right.

Lets ask the question: does the right-wing theory of sex and love make any sense? Or is it just plain ignorance and folly?

The theory goes something like this. Men are buyers in a marketplace, and women are sellers. Men bid. The more of a cocktail of money, muscles, and power that they have, the more currency they have to bid with. The more prettiness, shapeliness, blondness, and fertility, a woman has, the more valuable they are. Men buy, and women sell. But what are men buying? They are not just buying sex. They are buying sex with the hottest woman.

First notice what the above really is. Its economic determinismhuman relationships reduced to neoliberal economics, extreme capitalism by another name, materialist individualism. The richest person wins! He owns the best stuff!! Only the strong survive! Life is competition!! And so on.

Now note has happened here. The only party with agency is the man. The woman is reduced to a resource, a commodity, and, of course, an object. She has no subjectivity, no reality, no interiority. But the man is reduced, toohis agency is diminished to the size of his wallet, muscles, and status. It isnt moral, ethical, emotional, or social agency, its just physical and financial agency. But is that all either person isthis little shrunken thing? Is this theory in any way accurate?

Lets first critique it economically. Commodities are interchangeable things, like wheat, or corn, and people are not. Resources are things we can use up and throw away, and people are not. Women are not commodities or resourcesbut neither, interestingly, are men, so this fictional currency of money, looks, and status cannot really exist, either. So the theory of a sexual marketplace falls apart with just the merest touch.

Now. Lets come back to the question of hotness. The idea of hotness is that our preferences all our the sameblond and thin on one side, and rich, powerful, and muscled on the other. Thus, the hottest person is the one desired by everyone, because they have the most of these qualities, and in that way, hotness presumes that people are interchangeable againon both sides, the desired and the desirer both.

But is the person that you love really interchangeable with someone else? Are your preferences really interchangeable with anyone elses? Of course not. If we...

Go to: https://www.virtualshield.com/billstill Good afternoon, Im still reporting on: Saudi Prince Palestinians Must Accept Peace or Shut Up!, 2231 Synopsis: Saudi Arabias crown prince Mohammed bin Salman - the future king told a crowd of American Jews meeting in New York that Palestinians must: accept peace or shut up. The crown prince known as MBS in the Arab press - was quoted in the news site, TheNewArab which said that the source of the harsh criticism of the Palestinian leadership was first published on Israels Channel 10 News. Bin Salman scolded the Palestinian leadership for their decades-long history of rejecting peace with Israel. The implications for the future re-shuffling of the power structure Middle-Eastern affairs reportedly stunned the Jewish audience to the point that people literally fell off their chairs. That means that once the Mullahs in Iran are brought to their senses, there will be few remaining roadblocks to a Middle East peace agreement. Last month, King Salman of Saudi Arabia rejected a controversial statement by his 32-year-old son that Saudi Arabia recognizes Israels right to exist. Saudi Arabia and Israel have no formal diplomatic relations, but in the past two years, a series of covert meetings have taken place between officials, providing the impression of a rapprochement between the two states. The Saudi media had previously been quite critical of Israels treatment of Palestinians. However, recently, a number of media outlets have begun painting Israel in a more reasonable light while deamonising the Iranian leadership.

Virginia National Guard hosts national disaster response exercise as hurricane season starts "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

SANDSTON, Va. More than 2,000 National Guard personnel from six states and Washington, D.C., will take part in the Vigilant Guard 18-3 emergency response exercise May 7-10, 2018, at multiple locations in Virginia to improve their ability to respond to a natural disaster and enhance relationships with local, state and federal emergency response partners.

The event will simulate a Category 4 hurricane making landfall in Virginia, and exercise how the Virginia National Guard would assist in the states response with a full mobilization of personnel and coordination to bring in additional National Guard capabilities to help the states response effort.

The hurricanes that hit Texas, Florida, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands last year showed clearly how important it is that the National Guard work closely with our state, local and federal partners, said Maj. Gen. Timothy P. Williams, the adjutant general of Virginia. Exercises like Vigilant Guard are critical to our ability to make sure we can quickly and effectively provide the kind of support needed to keep the citizens of the commonwealth safe after a hazardous weather event hits.

The Virginia National Guard in partnership with the Virginia Department of Emergency Management hosts vigilant Guard 18-3, and U.S. Northern Command sponsors the overall program in conjunction with National Guard Bureau, explained Army Col. Todd Hubbard, the exercise director. It is one of multiple exercises taking place the first two weeks in May as part of the Federal Emergency Management Agencys National Level Exercise, using a common scenario with more 250 agencies participating.

The Maryland National Guard will host a Vigilant Guard exercise as well, and other events include NORTHCOMs Ardent Sentry, the U.S. Coast Guards District 5 Hurricane Exercise, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers North Atlantic Division Hurricane Exercise, and U.S. Navy Fleet Forces Command Citadel Gale 2018.

The Virginia National Guard conducts domestic operations as part of a coordinated multi-agency state response, and usually in support of a lead agency like the Virginia State Police, Virginia Department of Transportation or local law enforcement or emergency services organizations. VDEM receives support requests from Virginia localities and the Virginia National Guard is one of many organizations that provide capabilities to help meet their needs.

VDEM, along with 18 other state agencies and 39 localities, is exercising its hurricane plans and testing how well local, state and federal agencies work together to address hurricane damage as part of the 2018 National Level Exercise. Exercise play began May 1 and will last through May 11, with the majority of Virginias participation taking place May 7. Participants will test activities related to pre-landfall preparedness and warning, eme...

NATO troops reportedly killed in Donbass, war provocations suspected "IndyWatch Feed World"

Over the past two days, a number of important developments have taken place in Donbass and Ukraine. Firstly, on May 17th, a group of NATO troops from the US and Canada stepped into a minefield near Avdeevka, a move which ended in explosions and, according to DPR reports, deaths and woundings. This news was published by Russia's leading news agencies, which is in itself an important development, since earlier such resources had been very cautious in speaking of NATO involvement in the war in Donbass. Most significantly of all, Rossiiskaiia Gazeta, the official organ of the Government of the Russian Federation, shared the news. To briefly recap, Avdeekva is a small satellite town of Donetsk. Since the very beginning of the conflict, the town has been occupied by the Ukrainian Armed Forces. Avdeekva is known as an industrial giant, whose coke-chemical plant has worked throughout all four years of the war and been a major source of contention between oligarchs. The overwhelming majority of Avdeevka's residents support the DPR, and one of Donetsk's lines of defense runs right in front of the city. It is in this very city that Ukrainian troops and OSCE observers have been spotted collaborating during military operations. Allow me to draw the reader's attention to the fact that the DPR's military intelligence reported at least two days before the minefield incident that the Ukrainian Armed Forces' command is preparing a provocation involving NATO troops. It seems that they were deliberately sent into the minefield to blame Western troop deaths on DPR military sabotage. Such information was shared with journalists on May 15th by the speaker of the Donetsk People's Republic's army, Eduard Basurin.

What Do Women Want in a Man? The Right Leg-to-Body Ratio "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

What makes a man attractive? Hint: Look at his limbs

Women prefer a man with legs that are about half his height, according to previous research; scientists believe that is an evolutionary result of women wanting to choose only healthy men. Legs that are too short, for example, have been linked to type 2 diabetes. But other proportions, such as arm length to body height or whether the elbow and knee divide a limb in half, can also relate to a person's health. Do they influence women's views as well?

To answer this, researchers collected average body proportions from roughly 9000 men in the U.S. military and used them to create computer-generated images of male models (pictured). The scientists made the model's arms and legs slightly longer or shorter, and then asked more than 800 heterosexual U.S. women to rank each model's attractiveness.

How long the model's arms were relative to his height didn't seem to matter [open, DOI: 10.1098/rsos.171790] [DX], the team reports today in Royal Society Open Science. And women cared only a little about how the elbow or knee divided a limb. But as seen in previous work, women noticed if the legs made up more or less than half his heightand they didn't like it.

Soldiers placed upwind from simulated nuclear blast in latest drill "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

Smoking buildings lay ruined. Debris and clothing are scattered across the landscape. Vehicles, some tipped topsy-turvy, are strewn along roads and paths. Human cries for help can be heard, calling out for someone to save them.

Skyward, the distant beating of rotor blades indicates that rescue helicopters are on the way.

Fortunately, this is only a training scenario as part of the U.S. Northern Command-hosted Guardian Response 18 exercise, which takes place here through April 30. The center is located southeast of Camp Atterbury, Indiana, its sister training facility.

As long as Cryptocurrencies remain Assets Then they will Survive a Monetary Crisis. "IndyWatch Feed World"

 

QUESTION: You originally said back at the 2015 WEC the first window for the monetary crisis and the collapse of the Euro could arrive by 2018 and then the cycle was extended into 2021 when the Euro finally elected a weekly bullish. So it appears correct that 2018 is the start as the Euro never reached your target but came close and the EU seems to be coming apart at the seams. Gold could never get through your 1362 number either so that too seems to have confirmed a false move extending your cycle into 2021. I understand that cryptocurrencies are really an asset class and not really a currency. Nevertheless, do you think that cryptocurrencies can survive a monetary crisis?

WN

ANSWER: The year 2018 was the start of the Monetary Crisis. We had a shot that this could all come undone in 2018. However, you are correct. All we achieved was a false rally with the Euro stopping just shy of our number and gold struggled admirably but could not get through 1362. There were many other markets also confirming that we are dealing with only the beginning of the crisis here in 2018 rather than the conclusion including the consolidation in the stock market without election any monthly bearish reversals. The monetary reset can arrive during the next window in time come 2021 if we get the dollar at new highs. Then the monetary system will crack. However, this could drag out to the third window which is of course...

Turning a Corner "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"



After all of the work we accomplished on Thursday at the Stoddart Avenue Community Garden, yesterday was almost like coasting to the finish line.   Although I was able to leave by around 4 p.m. (instead of after 6 p.m like the rest of this month), I started earlier than usual in order to miss the traffic cones in Bexley for a 5K race there in my neighborhood.  Our community service volunteers came later than usual, but I tasked all but one of them to neighborhood issues because we did not have much left to do at the SACG.  I have A LOT of extra tomato seedlings to share with anyone who stops by and will save planting our raised beds for when the Ohio After-School All-Stars visit us on June 4.

Montenegro may build fence on Albanian border to stop migrants "IndyWatch Feed Africa"

Montenegro, seeing a rise in the number of migrants passing through the country on a new route to the European Union, is considering building a razor wire fence on its border with Albania to stem the flow, a government official said on Sunday.

Thousands of migrants from the Middle East and North Africa are taking their chance to reach wealthier European countries after smugglers created a new Balkan route running from Greece via Albania, Montenegro and Bosnia to EU member Croatia.

Image result for Montenegro, Albania, map

Bosnia is already coping with thousands of migrants who were stranded after a route via Turkey, Greece, Macedonia and Serbia was shut in 2016, when Turkey agreed to stop the flow in return for EU aid and other concessions.

In the case of a greater influx of migrants, we may raise a razor wire fence on the border with Albania, Vojislav Dragovic, the head of Montenegros department for state border supervision, told state television.

He said Albanian authorities had often refused to accept migrants turned back from Montenegro under their bilateral re-admission agreement.

Many countries on the migrant route have secured their borders with physical barriers. Hungary put up a razor wire fence on its borders with Serbia and Croatia during the crisis in 2015, when more than a million migrants came to Europe.

House Fails to Pass Farm Bill "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

At first it might seem odd that the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program [SNAP] program is overseen by the congressional agriculture committees. Its a social welfare program and those committees are more well-known for their concern with livestock, commodities and international trade. But farmers grow the food that food stamp recipients eat, and they benefit from the existence of the program. This creates a happy circumstance where a lot of rural voters and politicians representing very conservative constituencies are consistently paired with urban politicians and constituencies to protect the program.

In conservative ideology, anyone who gets something for free is a freeloader who exploits the system. So, conservative politicians tend to want to trim back even earned entitlements like Social Security and Medicare, and they certainly dont like Medicaid. But if it helps farmers, they have traditionally been willing to go along. Thats why you see bipartisan support for milk subsidies, for example.

In recent years, this unusual alliance of rural and urban interest has begun to break down. And today the House of Representatives failed to pass their Farm Bill because it included an attack on the food stamp program. The first problem was there was absolutely no buy-in for these changes from the Democrats.

House Democrats abandoned negotiations with Republicans over the food stamp changes, which would require adults to spend 20 hours per week either working or participating in a state-run training program as a condition to receive benefits. Democrats argue that a million or more people would end up losing benefits as a result because most states dont have the capacity to set up the training programs required.

The second reason it failed is that conservatives did not want to vote on the Farm Bill at all until after they were allowed to vote on a hardline anti-immigration bill crafted by the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, Rep. Bob Goodlatte of Virginia. Speaker Paul Ryan and Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy were unable to convince the House Freedom Caucus that they would eventually be allowed to vote on the immigration bill, so they opposed the Farm Bill in protest.

Theres a bit more to this story, as its all bound up with a major revolt within the Republican caucus over the fate of the DACA program and the Dreamers.

With Another School Shooting, Has Anything Changed? "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Yesterday, as I was looking over the cornucopia of bad news options for topics to write about I had a fleeting moment of recognition, tinged with a feeling of regret, that the amazingly long and surprising strong influence of Stoneman Douglas High School shooting survivors had at some recent point finally come to an end. I tried to console myself that theyd had some limited legislative successes and created a momentum all its own, not dependent on constant refueling from a ghoulish press. Organizations had sprung up and leaders had emerged, and so below the surface of daily national attention, the Parkland survivors had and would continue to make a difference.

That was my happy thought. Yet, my darker side wondered if the survivors had failed almost as thoroughly as every other group that has suffered senseless loss of life at the hands of a well-armed gunman. More stunning than the Parkland kids successes was the seeming silence and impotence of the survivors of the far more deadly Route 91 Harvest music festival shooting in Las Vegas. That Congress had done nothing in the face of a tragedy that cost fifty-eight people their lives and in which another four hundred and twenty-two people were shot was telling about how much power the National Rifle Association has over Republican lawmakers.

My final thought on this topic yesterday before my mind moved in another direction was that it would not be long before there was another mass casualty gun incident, and that would become a test for whether or not the Parkland kids had fundamentally changed anything. Unfortunately, I was right about that.

At least eight people died Friday morning in gunfire at Santa Fe High school, law enforcement officials confirmed, while at least 12 others were injured, according to area hospitals.

Police arrested a suspect and detained a second person, Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez said via Twitter.

The bloodshed 30 miles south of Houston is the worst mass shooting in America since February, when 17 people were gunned down at a high school in Parkland, Florida, according to a database of shootings maintained by the Washington Post.

Well be told not to politicize this and hear all the familiar excuses for not doing anything in response, but the survivors have a new template now for how to con...

Robert Applebaum is a Certified Health Physicist, CHP, Emeritus. Below is Applebaums response to an attempt to increase radiation exposure limits, through the US NRC. Currently, the same players, Calabrese et al., appear to be trying to get the US EPA to increase radiation exposure limits. These limits are for the general population, through legal discharges into the environment. They are not for nuclear workers. Calabreses group (SARI) delivered a special pleading letter to Pruitt in March of 2017 and, in the interim, it was apparently spun and repackaged. In March 2017, Mark Miller, who retired from Sandia National Nuclear Lab, and who has solar panels on his own house, signed the SARI letter-petition to Pruitt.

The Iranian Threat Is Inflated and Regional War Would Be a Disaster "IndyWatch Feed World"

Americas president is being advised by unhinged warmongers. Pay attention, folks war with Iran is what men like Bolton, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, and Israeli Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu want, and, its war they might just get; consequences be damned! With President Trump scuttling the Iran nuclear deal and threatening to impose new sanctions against the advice of every major European ally war seems like a genuine, if horrifying, possibility.

Heres a prediction: (though forecasting is always a dangerous game) President Trump will strike some sort of deal with already nuclear North Korea, vie for a Nobel Peace Prize, and then unleash the U.S. and Israeli military on non-nuclear Iran. The results will be catastrophic.

Israel, no doubt, wants war with Iran, and just this past week blasted dozens of Iranian military sites in Syria. If Netanyahu and his far-right cabal in Tel Aviv want a disastrous, destabilizing war, then let them have it. The problem is that Bibi is counting on big brother Donald Trump and the US to back his play and join the fray. But that war, an American-Iranian conflagration, is not inevitable and ill-advised. The president, a man who ran on a platform of no new dumb wars like the Iraq invasion  and ought to stick to his campaign pledge.

Heres the bottom line: 1) Iran is neither the threat nor the monster it is billed as; and 2) The actual conduct and results of a major war with the Islamic Republic would be disastrous.

Lets start with the purported threat of Iran. We are told that Iran is a regional ogre, bent on Mideast dominance and the creation of a new Persian Empire. It is staunchly dedicated to the absolute annihilation of the state of Israel. This all makes for excellent propaganda but is just empirically false!

Look, Iran is not a very open or transparent state. Theres no denying its flagrant human rights violations. Still, a little perspective is in order. Iran is far more democratic and open than Saudi Arabia a USally and one of the last absolute monarchies on earth. Iran, which is purportedly out to wipe Israel off the map, actually has a small but surviving and thriving Jewishcommunity. Can the Saudis say the same? In fact, Iran even sets aside seats for one Jew and...

Floating in a Sea of Propaganda part 3 "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

One of the worst things about Russians (especially Soviet Russians!) is that they use propaganda to indoctrinate their people into the dictatorship of the proletariat.

Those are ringing words, arent they? Dictatorship of the proletariat sounds almost like something Orwell would have come up with. Thats because it was cooked up by the US own propaganda department.

Its pretty amazing, the things you can find on Ebay. That pamphlet was Prepared and released by the Committee on Un-American Activities, U.S. House of Representatives HUAC Joe McCarthys boys. McCarthy, if youll recall, used to claim that he had a list of over 200 members of the Department of State that are known communists. The list was, naturally, a lie. McCarthy was a propagandist. He used the US Government to push his lies to the people, thereby deliberately bypassing any sort of democratic process in which The People would be able to assess the truth of what was being said, and to decide how to respond.

The contents of the pamphlet are an interesting exercise in moral nihilism: the worst and most bald-faced lies are told with a straight face. Clearly, whoever published the pamphlet believed that the ends justified the means i.e.: it was worth lying to the people to protect them from the lies of communism. Or something. Thats why I call it moral nihilism there is no underlying reason why we should believe one set of lies or another.

How do the Communists get control?

Legally or illegally, any way they can. Communisms first big victory was through bloody revolution. Every one since has been by military conquest. or internal corruption, or the thread of these.

Conspiracy is the basic method of Communism in countries it is trying to capture.
Iron Force is the basic method of communism in countries it has already captured.

I am reminded of the old joke: a Soviet farmer says to another, You know, under Capitalism, man exploits man. Under Communism, its just the opposite.

Conspiracy and iron force are how all governments create themselves; they call it legitimacy and once they are established they call it the social contract.

I know James Fallows he is best-known as a former speechwriter for President Jimmy Carter and as an author for The Atlantic.  I met him after reading three of his books, Blind Into Baghdad: Americas War in Iraq; National Defense; and Free Flight: Inventing the Future of Travel.

I have not read, but want to point out, his books, Breaking the News: How  the Media Undermine American Democracy, and More Like Us: Making America Great Again. He has others. My point is that James Fallows is one of the most earnest observers of American culture and American democracy alive today, a man of integrity, intelligence, and imagination, and I consider it both an honor to know him, and a blessed education anytime I encounter anything he writes.

In the case of this book, OUR TOWNS, he is considerably enhanced by his wife both together and alone, they explored 42 different towns east and west, north and south and most importantly, right in the middle of the country where most never tread. This quote (page 4) captures their method:

President Donald Trump shouldnt agree to talk with special counsel Robert Mueller without knowing more about a man said to have approached Trump campaign aides in 2016 as part of the U.S. investigation into Russian election interference, his lawyer said Saturday.

Rudy Giuliani said Mr. Trump could be walking into a trap unless federal prosecutors make clear the role played by the suspected informant and whether the person compiled any incriminating information about Mr. Trumps associates.

Nigel has a point. The BBC Teach video begins:
Think immigrations a recent thing? Think again. Because, you see, youve got the Celts, the Romans, the Anglo Saxons and the Vikings, the Normans, the Flemish, the Irish, black Britons and Jewish people. Yup, we were multicultural long before curry and carnival. Its in our DNA. Theres no such thing as a pure Brit, despite what some flag wavers would have you believe. The average one is just 36 per cent Anglo Saxon. Migration did step up after the Second World War, when people arrived from all over the colonies. Places like India, the Caribbean, Pakistan, Uganda and Kenya. Then we joined the EU, which meant we could easily move to Paris, Rome, Berlin, Barcelona, and that people there could come here. Some people come fleeing war or poverty. Others, because we have a better music scene. But its only the past 20 years that have seen more people come and go. Even so, you cant open a paper without some people giving it large about immigration.

For Many Muslims, Israeli Occupation Is The Problem "IndyWatch Feed War"

Washingtons decision to move its embassy to Jerusalem continues to cause harm and suffering. On May 14, 62 Palestinians were killed by Israeli soldiers and hundreds were injured. This is pretty much the end of the Donald Trump administrations role in the Middle East peace process.

The move has also undermined any remaining hope for a two-state solution. The Trump administration is giving full support to Israels long-standing policy of creating facts on the ground and then grabbing more Palestinian land for reasons of security and the Israels so-called natural growth needs. This mindset has never taken into account the security, freedom and prosperity of the Palestinian people. They are expected to accept the 70-year occupation without putting up any resistance or objections. No other modern political story has been as tragic and hypocritical as the story of Palestine under occupation.

Image may contain: one or more people, people standing, sky, cloud, nature and outdoor

Palestinian people during the protest against the U.S. relocating its embassy to Jerusalem and the Israeli states occupation on their lands, Gaza Strip, May 15.

Not many believed that the U.S. was an honest broker in the Middle East peace process in the first place. Trumps Jerusalem decision is the last nail in the coffin. The Palestinians do not want to deal with the U.S. administration and they are right. The Trump administration has given them no hope, no encouragement, no support and nothing to keep them in the negotiations. Trumps officials have said for months without sharing any details that they have been working on a new road map for peace. As it turns out, the only road map that has emerged so far is one destined to end in a crash a crash that has the potential to set fire to the entire region. The Jerusalem move may have fulfilled the weird theological beliefs of some evangelical Americans and Zionists, but it has done immense damage already. The so-called Western liberal world order and its governments are either silent or utterly helpless when it comes to the Israeli occupation. They accept every Israeli claim at face value and design their policies according to the dictates of the Israeli lobbies in their respective countries.
