wo Palestinians were killed and 270 others were injured by Israeli forces alongside the eastern borders of the besieged Gaza Strip during the 21st Friday of The Great March of Return under the slogan "Revolution for Jerusalem and the Al-Aqsa." According to the Palestinian Ministry of Health in Gaza, a 30-year-old Palestinian, identified as Karim Abu Fatair, was killed after Israeli forces opened fire and shot him in the head near the return camps in central Gaza. The ministry confirmed that 270 Palestinians were injured, of whom 166 were treated at medical posts along the border, while 104 were transferred to the hospital to receive medical treatment. The ministry added that of the 104 transferred to the hospital, 60 suffered injuries due to live ammunition fired by Israeli forces.

South Koreas Moon Steers Toward Unity While Wind From Washington Blows In His Face "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

Seoul, South Korea - South Koreas President Moon Jae-in marked the anniversary of Koreas independence from Japanese colonialism with a robust call for the economic integration of North and South Korea as a means to achieve survival and development as well as true liberation for the long-divided nation. The announcement which focused on the creation of various joint projects including inter-Korean railway, energy, and economic links sharply diverges from the United States insistence that all pursue a maximum pressure strategy to denuclearize the Democratic Peoples Republic of Korea


Trump Strikes Back At Ringleader Brennan "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

Theres more than meets the eye to President Donald Trumps decision to revoke the security clearances that ex-CIA Director John Brennan enjoyed as a courtesy customarily afforded former directors. The Presidents move is the second major sign that Brennan is about to be hoisted on his own petard. It is one embroidered with rhetoric charging Trump with treason and, far more important, with documents now in the hands of congressional investigators showing Brennans ringleader role in the so-far unsuccessful attempts to derail Trump both before and after the 2016 election.

A Smokestorm is Imminent for Western Washington "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

Sunday 9 AM update

The smoke is moving in aloft (see satellite picture).  This movement will accelerate later today.  Smoke will surge in first aloft and then down to the surface. Air quality is still moderate near the surface.  More later.


You have heard of rainstorms, snowstorms, and windstorms.  It is time to create another one:

the smokestorm. 

And tonight and tomorrow one will hit western Washington, with air quality degrading rapidly to levels that may even be worse than Wednesday of the past week.  Vulnerable folks need to be prepared for this onslaught of smoke.

Large fires are now burning in British Columbia and eastern Washington, injecting substantial smoke into the air.   With generally westerly flow aloft during the past few days, western Washington has been protected, but the winds aloft are turning northerly and northeasterly, resulting in the smoke blowing directly towards us.

The visible satellite image around 10 AM Saturday shows lots of smoke over eastern WA and southeastern BC that is extending to the Cascades and even NW Washington.  Animations show this smoke moving directly towards northwest WA.  Low clouds are evident along the coast.



Iran imprisons Christians for propaganda activities against the system and in favor of Zionist Christianity "IndyWatch Feed War"

The Mind Of The Mass Media: Email Exchange With Washington Post Foreign Policy Reporter "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

Popular Resistance has covered the Ukraine coup in depth as it was happening. You can find the articles under the tag, Ukraine. There is no question this was a US coup, indeed Victoria Nuland of the State Department acknowledged the US spent billions of dollars to achieve it. The US was the aggressor in Ukraine, yet the media, like the Washington Post (see below) calls Russia the aggressor. In reality, Russia was defending Russian speakers in Eastern Ukraine and Crimea from threats by Kiev against Russian speakers and from Nazi's the US has allied with in Ukraine.


We Cant Confront Fascism Without Addressing White Settler Colonialism "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

The white supremacists didn't come to Washington, D.C. on August 12. They were already here, occupying the White House, capitol, Supreme Court and federal agencies. The white invasion brought white supremacy to Turtle Island, and people indigenous to this land have been suffering from it for more than 500 years. Washington, D.C. is the colonizer's capitaland the scourge of settler colonialism, and the racism and other ills it brought here, haven't been addressed by those in power.

Giuliani: Truth isnt truth (This is a good lawyer) "IndyWatch Feed War"

Rudy Giuliani declared truth isnt truth on Sunday while expressing his concerns over having President Trump sit down for an interview with special counsel Robert Mueller as part of the probe into Russian meddling in the 2016 election.

Giuliani, whos representing Trump in the investigation, said the presidents legal team has been negotiating with Muellers investigators for months about the ground rules for the president to testify.

Truth is truth, anchor Chuck Todd immediately shot back.

No, no, it isnt truth, Giuliani said. Truth isnt truth.

Mr. Mayor, the truth is the truth,Todd repeats. This is going to be a bad meme.

Dont do this to me, Giuliani says, as he grabs his forehead. Donald Trump says I didnt talk about Flynn with Comey.

Comey says you did talk about it. So tell me what the truth is.

He was referring to a conversation former FBI Director James Comey said he had with Trump in the White House in February 2017.

Comey, according to notes he took of the meeting, said the president asked him I hope you can let this go, referring to the investigation into Michael Flynn.

Flynn, Trumps former national security adviser, stepped down the month before when news reports revealed he had contact with a Russian ambassador during the campaign but did not inform the White House.

He pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI and is cooperating with Muellers probe.


The chimera of British anti-Semitism (and how not to fight it if it were real) "IndyWatch Feed War"

The current hysteria engulfing the British Labour Party resolves itself into a pair of interrelated, if discrete, premises: Anti-Semitism in British society at large and the Labour Party in particular have reached crisis proportions. If neither of these premises can be sustained, then the hysteria is a fabrication. In fact, no evidence has been adduced to substantiate either of them; on the contrary, all the evidence points in the opposite direction. The rational conclusion is that the brouhaha is a calculated hoaxdare it be said, plot?to oust Jeremy Corbyn and the principled leftist politics he represents from British public life.

But even if the allegations were true, the solution would still not be to curb freedom of thought in the Labour Party. At its worthiest, the Left-Liberal tradition has attached a unique, primordial value to Truth; but Truth cannot be attained if dissentients, however obnoxious, are silenced. Given the fraught history of anti-Semitism, on the one hand, and its crude manipulation by Jewish elites, on the other, an objective, dispassionate assessment could appear beyond reach. Still, it must be attempted. The prospect of a historic victory for the Left might otherwise be sabotaged as, thus far, Corbyns supporters, whether it be from fear, calculation, or political correctness, dare not speak the name of the evil that is afoot.

The degree of anti-Semitism infecting British society has been the subject of numerous polls over a sustained period of time.  These surveys have uniformly, consistently, and unambiguously concluded that anti-Semitism (1) has long been a marginal phenomenon in British society, infecting under 10 percent of the population, (2) is far less salient than hostility to other British minorities, and (3) is less pronounced in the UK than almost anywhere else in Europe. One might suppose that settled matters. But in 2017 the British Institute for Jewish Policy Research (JPR) published a study that purportedly refined conventional wisdom by measuring the elasticity of anti-Semitism: that is, not just the percentage of confirmed anti-Semites, but also the prevalence of stereotypes that stigmatize Jews.[1]  It found that, whereas a mere 2-5 percent of the British population can be reckoned anti-Semites, fully 30 percent harbor at least one anti-Semitic stereotype.

Before parsing the studys data, a couple of truisms warrant recalling.  First, a generalization is something that is held to be generally true; it evidently allows for exceptions. Although Engels the mill-owner generously subsidized his impecunious comrade, it didnt prevent Marx from generalizing about capitalist vampires. Were it not for the heuristic value of broad generalizati...

With First Potential Black Female Governor, Georgia Closing Seven Black Population Polling Districts "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

Election officials in a rural southwest Georgia county are defending a plan to suddenly close seven of the countys nine polling places against allegations of racial discrimination, saying the ones it wants to close are not sufficiently accessible to people with disabilities. Randolph County, the site of the proposed changes, is more than 60 percent black, with a little over 30 percent of residents in poverty more than double the national level. The Georgia chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union sent a letter to the election board earlier this week warning of a lawsuit because the proposed closures discriminated against black voters.

Chinas Xi says military must resist corruption Go in hot pursuit of and strike hard against hedonism and extravagance "IndyWatch Feed War"

Chinas military must resist the corrosion of corruption and ensure the fight against graft is deepened, President Xi Jinping told senior officers, state media said on Sunday, offering a renewed warning against a deep-seated problem.

Chinas military, the worlds largest and currently undergoing an ambitious modernization program, has been an important focus of Xis campaign against corruption since he took power six years ago.

Xi has repeatedly warned about the threat of corruption to the country and the party, and has vowed not to let up in the fight against it.

Dozens of officers have been investigated and jailed, including Xu Caihou and Guo Boxiong, both former vice chairmen of the Central Military Commission, which Xi heads and is in overall charge of the Peoples Liberation Army.

Guo was jailed for life in 2016. Xu died of cancer in 2015 before he could face trial.

Speaking at a three day-meeting of the Central Military Commission, which ended on Sunday, Xi said the fight against graft must remain always on the road and be deepened, the official Xinhua news agency reported.

Go in hot pursuit of and strike hard against hedonism and extravagance,  Xinhua cited Xi as saying. The anti-corruption fight must be unswervingly grasped, and will not change direction or form.

There must be no no-go areas and a zero tolerance attitude maintained, with a full and comprehensive supervision system put in place to tackle the problem, he added.

Chinas military must ensure they and their families are upright and clean, and that they can resist the corrosion of unhealthy tendencies, Xi said.

He also said efforts were needed to strengthen the leadership of the ruling Communist Party over the military to ensure a solid political guarantee for the building of a strong military.

Serving and retired officers have said graft in the armed forces is so pervasive it could undermine Chinas ability to wage war.

The anti-graft drive comes as Xi steps up efforts to modernize forces that are projecting power across the disputed waters of the East a...

North Korea-linked Dark Hotel APT leverages CVE-2018-8373 exploit "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

The North Korea-linked Dark Hotel APT group is leveraging the recently patched CVE-2018-8373 vulnerability in the VBScript engine in attacks in the wild.

The vulnerability affects Internet Explorer 9, 10 and 11, it was first disclosed last month by Trend Micro and affected all supported versions of Windows.

The flaw could be exploited by remote attackers to take control of the vulnerable systems by tricking victims into viewing a specially crafted website through Internet Explorer. The attacker could also embed an ActiveX control marked safe for initialization in an application or Microsoft Office document that hosts the IE rendering engine.

A remote code execution vulnerability exists in the way that the scripting engine handles objects in memory in Internet Explorer. The vulnerability could corrupt memory in such a way that an attacker could execute arbitrary code in the context of the current user. reads the security advisory published by Microsoft.

An attacker who successfully exploited the vulnerability could gain the same user rights as the current user. If the current user is logged on with administrative user rights, an attacker who successfully exploited the vulnerability could take control of an affected system. An attacker could then install programs; view, change, or delete data; or create new accounts with full user rights.

The analysis of the exploit code for the CVE-2018-8373 revealed it shared the obfuscation technique implemented for another exploit triggering the CVE-2018-8174 flaw.

The CVE-2018-8174 was first discovered by experts at Chinese security company Qihoo 360 and it was fixed in May by Microsoft.

The similarities in the exploits suggest that were developed by the same threat actor.

We found this exploit using heuristics, which led to a more in-depth analysis. Interestingly, we found that this exploit sample uses the same obfuscation technique as exploits for CVE-2018-8174, a VBScript engine remote code execution vulnerability...


A Look At The Windows vs. Linux Scaling Performance Up To 64 Threads With The AMD 2990WX "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

This past week we looked at the Windows 10 vs. Linux performance for AMD's just-launched Ryzen Threadripper 2990WX and given the interest from that then ran some Windows Server benchmarks to see if the performance of this 64-thread CPU would be more competitive to Linux. From those Windows vs. Linux tests there has been much speculation that the performance disparity is due to Windows scheduler being less optimized for high core/thread count processors and its NUMA awareness being less vetted than the Linux kernel. For getting a better idea, here are benchmarks of Windows Server 2019 preview versus Ubuntu Linux when testing varying thread/core counts for the AMD Threadripper 2990WX.

Why did hell go from being hot to cold to hot again? "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

In response to the Satanists installing a statue of Baphomet on the grounds of the state capital in Little Rock, Arkansas in response to the installation of a Ten Commandments monument, Republican state senator Jason Rapert, a minister and lead sponsor of the law allowing the Ten Commandments monument, promised to have the Satanist statue removed, saying that it will be a very cold day in hell before a statue of Baphomet would be installed.

Statements along the lines of it will be a cold day in hell and when hell freezes over are often used to suggest that something will never happen. Actually, while the New Testament of the Bible (especially that hilarious Book of Revelation) refers to hell as a fiery place, in the past hell has also been considered a very cold place because hell used to be thought of as located at the center of the Earth and thus as far away as you could get from the heavenly firmament where the Sun was. In Dante Alighieris The Divine Comedy, for example, which was published around 1320 CE, hell is placed in Earths innermost core. Dante also speaks of hell as not full of flames but as frozen and immobile.

This view was consistent with Aristotelian dynamics in a geocentric universe that was the dominant view at that time, in which the basic elements were earth, fire, water, and air. Fire being the least dense of the four would tend to go up towards the heavens while earth being the most dense would gravitate towards the center of the universe, since that was as far down as you could go. This was evidenced by the fact that rocks fell to the ground since earth, being heavy, was drawn to the center. Similarly flames leaping upwards showed that fire, being light, was drawn towards the heavens. The center of the Earth was considered the worst place in the universe, a kind of squalid basement where all filthiest stuff collected. Fire would not be found there, so hell was in the worst place in the universe and it was cold.

But hell is now again considered to be a hot place. The idea of a cold hell has not entirely disappeared and pops up in unexpected places such as in the song When I Die by Blood, Sweat, and Tears when they sing that they hear that it is crazy cold way down there.

So why has the temperature of hell oscillated between these two extremes? I suspect that religious scholars have looked into this question, since it is the kind of contradiction that they would feel the need to try and reconcile. Without doing any research whatsoever, I am going to make guesses as to the reasons.

There have always been attempts to reconcile religious knowledge with science. In the early...

Learned Helplessness and the China Syndrome "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

Yesterdays article which dealt with the increase in Chinese troop presence in this country as well as their infiltration into our internal politics, produced more controversy for an article that I have encountered in quite some time. I was cussed, accused of being mentally ill and I was called a liar. However, the story generated seven more leads on the topic that are credible.

Despite our recent populist revolution that brought Donald Trump to power, I am shocked and dismayed that so many of our people still have their heads buried in the proverbial sand.

Common Research Strategies

A frequent strategy that I employ is exactly what I did when I wrote my dissertation. And when I taught a research class leading to masters level dissertations, I would strongly suggest the same strategy. One simply asks a question, then follow the data which ultimately leads to a conclusion. When I write for the CSS, I often employ one more step which consists of looking for similar patterns in other venues or events and if a relationship exists then one connects the dots. Through the years, I have found that the globalists employ similar strategies on multiple fronts and this is a way I uncover a lot of their bad acts.

This schema of information gathering is simple, but it is amazingly productive in terms of producing results. When I follow this pattern, I find that I abandon about 30% of the articles I begin to investigate, because the data is weak or leads to spurious conclusions which are relevant to the original research question.

I am relating these simple investigative strategies to illustrate why much of my work stands the test of time. Sometimes when investigating a phenomenon, I find something anomalous and disturbing, but the context may not be readily apparent until years later when future events serve to support the original finding. An example would be my discovery, four years ago, that DHS was partnering with the UN to facilitate MS-13 getting into the United States.

There is one additional aspect of research in this field that is important, and this is the information that I receive from the general public. After yesterdays article which described how we have front companies for the Chinese military embedded in our solar industry, the blatant appearance of Chinese soldiers throughout the wes...


Midwest farmers take Trump to task over biofuels mandate "IndyWatch Feed War"

EPA move to water down standard could reduce demand for corn as producer profits slide

Gregory Meyer in New York 

American farmers became casualties of President Donald Trumps trade wars when China raised tariffs on their soyabeans. Now they are fighting to save another market: corn.

Under Mr Trump, the federal environmental regulator has been watering down a government mandate for biofuel use, corn advocates say. The actions could suppress fuel ethanol companies demand for the yellow grain just as farm profits slide.

Everything relative to ethanol has really been an uphill battle for us, said Mark Recker, a farmer and president of the Iowa Corn Growers Association. Although President Trump talks a lot about ethanol and wanting to build that industry and help corn farmers out, weve encountered a lot of things that have really worked counter to that.

Mr Recker travelled to the Iowa State Fair last week to press his case at a meeting with Andrew Wheeler, acting administrator of the US Environmental Protection Agency. Underlining the farm lobbys political clout, he was joined by Iowas governor, Kim Reynolds, and one of its congressmen, David Young. Both Republicans are in competitive races in the November elections, where the mandate is a critical issue for rural voters.

Iowa is the nations leading corn and ethanol producer. It is also a swing state that voted twice for Barack Obama, a Democrat, and then backed the Republican Mr Trump in 2016.

It is hard to overstate the importance of the biofuels industry as a market for Midwest farmers crops. About 38 per cent of the US corn harvest is sold to ethanol plants and a third of US soyabean oil is used to make biodiesel, accordi...


UK: Two Grouse Hunts Sabbed "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

from Unoffensive Animal

Yesterday some of us joined sab groups that travelled from across the country to sabotage the start of the grouse shooting season. Two shoots were successfully shut down during the day, the first on the Yorkshire Dales and the second on the North Yorkshire Moors.

The first shoot abandoned when the high number of sabs approaching became visible. They retreated to the safety of their pub, where a group of saboteurs ensured they didnt attempt to leave for another shoot that day. Another shoot was soon spotted on Bransdale Moor. Saboteurs approached and as the shoot became aware they would be stopped, they were packing everyone away for the day! Despite a few soggy boots and unintentional dips into some bogs, it was a good days sab. We can confirm that the shooters had their day well and truly ruined!

As usual, a high number of police were harassing saboteurs, with unmarked vehicles and police vans stalking saboteur vehicles for most of the day. One police officer even tried to blag he had the right to search the vehicles due to some graffiti left on a gate. Naughty graffiti pixies! Of course though they were reluctant to intervene when the shoot staff attempted to intimidate and assault saboteurs once groups has started to disperse.

We are currently struggling with funds at the moment with the badger cull being imminent. If you are able to support our work please consider dropping some coins to our paypal for the badger cull and for travel costs to give workshops. We also have a patreon that m...


Ecuador: Court Rules Chevron Must Pay for Environmental Damage "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

from Truthout

The Constitutional Court of Ecuador has issued a long-awaited ruling in favor of those affected by the transnational oil company Chevron, which operated through its subsidiary Texaco in Ecuador between 1964 and 1990. The court rejected the protection action that the company filed in 2013.

In the 151-page ruling, the court denied Chevrons claim of violation of constitutional rights. Chevron will now have to pay $9.5 billion for the repair and remediation of social and environmental damage that according to audits and expert reports were a result of oil company operations in the Amazonian provinces of Sucumbos and Orellana.

The benchmark decision on the pollution case came after the court found that Chevron deliberately dumped billions of gallons of toxic oil waste. The waste was dumped in the Amazon rainforest on indigenous lands.

The news was announced by members of the Union of Affected by Petroleum Chevron (UDAPT) on July 11. UDAPT represents a group of indigenous people of the Cofan, Secoya and Kichwa nationalities, and settlers. UDAPT coordinator William Lucitanda said in an interview that it was a historic day of the resistance of indigenous peoples in defense of collective rights. According to Lucitanda, at least 30,000 people have been impacted.

Pablo Fajardo, who was affected by Chevron and became a lawyer on the case said in a telephone interview that the ruling means a lot to them. Fajardo said they can now focus on how to validate or approve it in...

Lectionary: 419

Reading 1 EZ 24:15-23

The word of the LORD came to me:
Son of man, by a sudden blow
I am taking away from you the delight of your eyes,
but do not mourn or weep or shed any tears.
Groan in silence, make no lament for the dead,
bind on your turban, put your sandals on your feet,
do not cover your beard, and do not eat the customary bread.
That evening my wife died,
and the next morning I did as I had been commanded.
Then the people asked me, Will you not tell us what all these things
that you are doing mean for us?
I therefore spoke to the people that morning, saying to them:
Thus the word of the LORD came to me:
Say to the house of Israel:
Thus says the Lord GOD:
I will now desecrate my sanctuary, the stronghold of your pride,
the delight of your eyes, the desire of your soul.
The sons and daughters you left behind shall fall by the sword.
Ezekiel shall be a sign for you:
all that he did you shall do when it happens.
Thus you shall know that I am the LORD.
You shall do as I have done,
not covering your beards nor eating the customary bread.

Syria Pentagon Plants High ISIS Numbers To Justify Occupation "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

The U.S. aim in Syria is still 'regime change'. The Pentagon has made it clear that it wants to stay in the country even after the Islamic State vanished. A little propaganda trick is now used to create a justification for its continuing occupation. The U.S. is justifying its occupation of north-east Syria by claiming to fight ISIS under the legal cover of two UN Security Council resolutions. Now, as ISIS in Syria has shrunk to a few dozens of fighters, that justification is wearing thin. It is immensely important for the Pentagon to present a high number, as ISIS is its only legal justification to stay in Syria.


Low and High Carb Diets Increase Risk of Early Death, Study Finds "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

A low-carb or high-carb diet raises your risk of death, a new study suggests, with people eating the food staple in moderation seeing the greatest benefits to their health.

Less than 40% or more than 70% of your energy -- or calories -- coming from carbohydrates was associated with the greatest risk of mortality. Eating moderate levels between that range offered the best options for a healthy lifespan.

The lowest risk of an early death was seen where carbs made up 50-55% of a person's diet, according to the study published Thursday.

However, the definition of a low-carb diet had some caveats as not all diets were equal.

[...] "On an 'average' 2,000 kcal-a-day intake, a diet of 30% calories from carbs equates to only 150g a day, with sugars (natural or 'added') contributing around 50g of that total. With a mere 100g of complex carb a day to play with, a lower intake of cereals, grains, and starchy vegetables is inevitable," said Catherine Collins, a dietitian with the UK's National Health Service, who was not involved in the study.

[...] The findings "will disappoint those who, from professional experience, will continue to defend their low carb cult, but contributes to the overwhelming body of evidence that supports a balanced approach to caloric intake recommended globally by public health bodies," Collins added.

How do you still call yourself a Catholic? Lehrer asks "IndyWatch Feed War"

Two days  ago on WNYC, the very thoughtful host Brian Lehrer responded to the bombshell sexual abuse revelations about 1000 victims in the Catholic Church in Pennsylvania by asking Catholics to call in and explain why they were still Catholic.

How do you still call yourself a Catholic? Or, How do you still go to church? I dont mean this in a snarky way at all or an anti-Catholic way. Im not a Catholic, Im not trying to pry anyone out of their religion. But Im just curious how you deal with it? If you stay identified, if you stay involved, if the institution is this rotten and this hypocritical with respect to the values of doing unto others that Jesus and God are supposed to stand for, how do you still call yourself a Catholic? And how does this new set of revelations land with you? Are you feeling them emotionally with any new disgust or is it all kind of baked in for you with all that had already become known over the last 20 years?

These are excellent questions, and natural responses. Among the callers was someone who said he concentrates on the good works his parish does, including among the Hispanics; another who said that more investigations should follow, but the sacrament of the Eucharist is still central to his life; and someone else who said shes an ex-Catholic because the church takes no responsibility for all the damage its caused, and priests should be allowed to marry.

But charity begins at home; and my marvel about Lehrers moral scrutiny is that it is absent when it comes to two other establishments with which he has much stronger identification: 1, the Jewish congregations that have supported Israel and that invite AIPAC to the pulpit even after yet anther massacre in Gaza, and 2, the foreign policy establishment that gave us the Iraq war.

As to the Jewish establishment, it is common to hear young Jews and anti-Zionist Jews expressing Lehrers disgust, and saying they want nothing to do with the formal Jewish religion in the United States, so long as the official bodies are supporting Israel thru thick and thin. Jewish Voice for Peace created a rabbinical council so as to give dissenting Jews a place to maintain their faith. And IfNotNow has encouraged a revival of Jewish religious song/ritual in a non-Zionist context. All because of the moral black hole that Israel represents. If he were fair, Brian Lehrer would have a number of these Jewish dissenters on to ask them how they reconciled faithfulness with the human rights atrocities of the Jewish state. I dont think hes ever had a Jewish anti-Zionist on his show. Lehrer might as well be Fox News when it comes to Israel.

Judicial Watch: Five More Classified Emails on Clintons Unsecure System Plus who was working illicitly to bring down an elected president "IndyWatch Feed War"

Do you think weve heard the end of Hillary Clintons email escapades? Dont count on it.

More than three years ago, on May 6, 2015, we sued the State Department (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of State (No. 1:15-cv-00687)) after it failed to respond to our FOIA request seeking:

All emails sent or received by former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton in her official capacity as Secretary of State, as well as all emails by other State Department employees to Secretary Clinton regarding her email address.

We have now released two batches, 184 pages and 45 pages, of newly uncovered emails that were sent and received over Clintons unsecure, email system. Five of them contain classified information.

The documents are part of the accelerated schedule of production ordered by U.S. District Court Judge James E. Boasberg, which requires the State Department to complete processing by September 28, 2018. The remaining documents are part of the 72,000 pages recovered by the FBI in its investigation into Hillary Clintons illicit email server. These new classified and other emails appear to be among those that Clinton had attempted to delete or had otherwise failed to disclose.

The new documents include material classified confidential on negotiations between Northern Ireland and UK, as well as negotiations with Israel, Palestine, and France. They also include a reference to a Clinton meeting with controversial leftwing billionaire George Soros, and advice to Clinton from Sid Blumenthal, who was barred from a State Department position by the Obama administration and regardless continued to advise her on matters of state.

DiGenova: Who Plotted To Destroy Duly Elected President? Comey, Brennan, Strzok, Ohr, Steele, Yates, Others "IndyWatch Feed War"


Joe diGenova told Sean Hannity on Thursday that it was so important for Donald Trump to win because we wouldnt have found out about the deep state otherwise. DiGenova also called the Manafort trial an absolute embarrassment to the Department of Justice as the case should have never been brought to a courtroom.

DiGenova also accused the deep state of being determined to destroy a president after he was duly elected. Mueller realized that the collusion case was worthless and the big case is the case to frame the president.

There was a brazen plot to exonerate Hillary Clinton. And if she lost to frame Donald Trump. Part of that plot involved the conspiracy with Bruce Ohr, Steele, Sally Yates, John Brennan, James Comey, Peter Strozk and other senior FBI and the DOJ Officials who determined that they were going to destroy a president after he was duly elected, he said of the plot to deny Trump the presidency.

Liberal comedian and commentator Bill Maher defends Alex Jones right for free speech "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

Comedian, political commentator and HBO talk show host Bill Maher came to the defense of Infowars founder Alex Jones on the set of Real Time on Friday where he pointed out that the country is losing grasp on its founding concepts because liberals are supposed to be for free speech.

The left-wing comedian took a minute to address the fact that Alex Jones has a right to say what he wants even if some people dont agree with him.

Although Mahers audience cheered when he mentioned Jones had been thrown off of Twitter and Facebook, Maher stood his ground and pointedly communicated his thoughts on the matter.

If youre a liberal then you are supposed to be for free speech, Maher said. Thats free speech for the speech you hate thats free speech.

Thats what free speech means, he explained. We are losing the thread of the concepts that are important to this country if you care about the real American sh*t or you dont and if you do it goes for every side.

I dont like Alex Jones but Alex Jones gets to speak everybody gets to speak.

We're on the Road to Nowhere "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

...where a strong anti-Brexit angle would open the programme then, after the news, a string of anti-Brexit experts would appear making a damning case against Brexit and, finally, a pro-Brexit interviewee would appear to answer all the charges (often with Mark interrupting). still in regular use. 

Today's edition was nothing new under the sun in this respect, except that Matthew Price was in the chair instead of Mark Mardell.

The strong anti-Brexit angle which opened the programme was that the UK's road haulage industry would be very badly hit by a no deal Brexit. The string of anti-Brexit experts (with Matthew explicitly describing his first guest as "an expert") did indeed make a damning case against Brexit, and the final pro-Brexit interviewee - here Andrew Bridgen MP - duly appeared to answer all the charges and got interrupted. 

From the end of the news bulletin, the build-up to the interview with Mr Bridgen lasted nine minutes, the interview with Mr Bridgen four minutes. (I've heard worse, balance-wise). But the interruptions had me laughing, as Matthew first interrupted the Tory backbencher three seconds into his first answer, interrupted him again four seconds into his second answer and interrupted him five seconds into his third answer. 

Maybe he deserved it. The BBC's transport correspondent, listening, says the MP got his facts wrong:

viser: US, Israel, Russia all want Iran out of Syria

US National Security Adviser John Bolton, on a visit to Israel, says the US, Israel and Russia share the objective of removing Iranian and Iranian-led forces from Syria, and ending Irans backing of the Lebanese terror group Hezbollah.

The objective of the United States, of Israel President Putin said it was Russias objective is to get Iran, Iranian forces, Iranian militias, Iranian surrogates out of the offensive operations theyre in in both Syria and Iraq, and, frankly, to end Irans support for Hezbollah, Bolton tells Martha Raddatz of ABC News in a Sunday morning interview.

I think the presidents decision to withdraw from the Iran nuclear deal has put a real crimp into the Iranian economy. I think theyre feeling it and their capability for the Quds Force or the Iranian Revolutionary Guards to conduct offensive operations in in the region here and in Yemen as well is reduced, Bolton insisted.

But I think this is part of the problem with the Iranian regime generally and why its such a threat to peace and security not just because of its nuclear program, but because of its military operations and its support for terrorism.



Military Parade Cancelled, How Does Peace Movement Build On This Victory? "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

This week, the Trump military parade, planned for November 10, was canceled for 2018. In February, a coalition of groups went public, announcing we would organize to stop the military parade and, if it went forward, to mobilize more people at the parade calling for peace and an end to war than supporting militarism. The coalition called for "ending the wars at home and abroad." The No Trump Military Parade coalition intended to show the world that the people of the United States do not support war. Now that the parade has been cancelled, how do we build on that success?


[Cody] Builds a Chlorine Machine "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

In his continuing bid to have his YouTube channel demonetized, [Cody] has decided to share how he makes chlorine gas in his lab. Because nothing could go wrong with something that uses five pounds of liquid mercury and electricity to make chlorine, hydrogen, and lye.

Well be the first to admit that we dont fully understand how the Chlorine Machine works. The electrochemistry end of it is pretty straightforward it uses electrolysis to liberate the chlorine from a brine solution. One side of the electrochemical cell generates chlorine, and one side gives off hydrogen as a byproduct. We even get the purpose of the mercury cathode, which captures the sodium metal as an amalgam. What baffles us is how [Cody] is pumping the five pounds of mercury between the two halves of the cell. Moving such a dense liquid would seem challenging, and after toying with more traditional approaches like a peristaltic pump, [Cody] leveraged the conductivity of mercury to pump it using a couple of neodymium magnets. He doesnt really explain the idea other than describing it as a rail-gun for mercury, but it appears to work well enough to gently circulate the mercury. Check out the video below for the build, which was able to produce enough chlorine to dissolve gold and to bleach cloth.

We need to offer the usual warnings about how playing with corrosive, reactive, and toxic materials is probably not for everyone. His past videos, from turning urine into gunpowder to mining platinum from the side of the road, show that [Cody] is clearly very knowledgeable in the ways of chemistry and that he takes to proper precautions. So if youve got a jug of mercury and you want to try this out, just be careful.

Highly Recommended: INDIGENOUS WRITES: A GUIDE TO FIRST NATIONS, METIS & INUIT ISSUES IN CANADA, by Chelsea Vowel "IndyWatch Feed 1stpeople"

In this morning's mail is a letter from a parent in the UK who is looking for resources with basic information she can share with her children, especially about Indigenous peoples in Canada.

At some point, this parent was told that if a Native person in Canada leaves their reserve for a big city, they lose some rights on their reserve. Is that true, she wonders, and does it apply to every Indigenous nation?

My guess is that it might be true on one, but not on all--but that is a guess because I'm not in Canada. Chelsea Vowel's Indigenous Writes: A Guide to First Nations, Mtis & Inuit Issues in Canada is the first place I'd look for information.

It is concise, packed with information, and in some ways, humorous. The title of the first chapter, for example, is "Just Don't Call Us Late For Supper: Names for Indigenous Peoples." What Vowel does there is poke at the dreadful ways that non-Native writers come up with names for Native people. I can imagine a snarky White mother telling her kid who is always late for supper "Your Indian name is Late For Supper." That sort of thing happens a lot. People think it is funny--but how people name their children ought never be something that others joke about.

That said, the chapter is not about personal names. Vowel begins with a list of words that are not acceptable: savage, red Indian, redskin, primitive, half-breed, squaw/brave/buck/papoose. Then she provides a terrific overview of names broadly used for Indigenous peoples, and specifics, too.

Published in 2016 by HighWater Press, I highly recommend, Indigenous Writes by Chelsea Vowel. Get a copy for your public or school library and let teachers and parents in your community know about it! Put it on display!

Remembering Caine "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

Descent of Night, Caine/Chris Ford, all rights reserved

In April of last year Caine blogged about the creation of this painting, Descent of Night. I fell in love with it instantly and wrote Caine to tell her how much it reminded me of shooting off fireworks at a place called Corner of the Beach. My husband and I do this every year on our anniversary and the colours Caine chose are the colours of the cliffs surrounding the beach. The rich reds and oranges with browns and touches of green. And all those stars are so full of energy, just like fireworks in motion. I asked Caine if it would be possible to get a good quality photograph of the piece and she said yes with no hesitation.

Imagine my surprise when I received a package that was not a photograph, but rather the painting itself. I was dumbstruck. Caine only knew me at that time through a few photo submissions and some comments Id made on the blog. I was essentially a stranger to her and here she had sent me this incredible piece of art. Imagine! The painting is now a cherished possession of mine. It not only reminds me of fireworks, but also of the kindness and generosity of a stranger who became a treasured friend.

I know many of you also have stories or thoughts about our beloved Caine so weve created this thread for you to share them. It will be left open and once I can figure a few things out it will be linked in the sidebar. The rules that Caine put in place still apply. Anything disrespectful will be immediately removed and dont be an asshole.

Former UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan Dies, Aged 80 "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

Kofi Annan, former UN chief, dies at 80

Kofi Annan, the only black African to become UN secretary-general, has died. The 80-year-old "passed away peacefully on Saturday after a short illness", the foundation named after him said.

His home country, Ghana, has declared a week of national mourning. Annan served two terms as UN chief from 1997 to 2006, and was awarded a Nobel Peace Prize for his humanitarian work. He later served as the UN special envoy for Syria, leading efforts to find a solution to the conflict.

In a statement announcing his death, the Kofi Annan Foundation described him as a "global statesman and deeply committed internationalist who fought throughout his life for a fairer and more peaceful world". "Wherever there was suffering or need, he reached out and touched many people with his deep compassion and empathy."

[...] Annan was not immune from criticism. His critics blamed him for the UN's failure to halt the genocide in Rwanda in the 1990s when he was head of the organisation's peacekeeping operations. Later, after the US-led invasion of Iraq, he and his son were accused of being involved in the "oil for food corruption scandal" that led some to call for his resignation, though he was later exonerated.

"The voice of the Nazis. Thats the BBC" "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

Meanwhile, Andrew Marr issues a tweet...

...and receives over 600 replies from angry members of the FBPE community, most of them pretty much the same thing: that it's "faux outrage" on Mr. Marr's part as the BBC has been "complicit" or "instrumental" in the rise of the far-right in this country by promoting Nigel Farage (including those famous 32 appearances on Question Time) and by giving airtime to the likes of Tommy Robinson, Katie Hopkins, Gerard Batten, Raheem Kassam, Steve Bannon, Ezra Levant, Sebastian Gorka and Marine le Pen. The BBC has been "platforming fascists". 

Here's a flavour:

  • You do understand that the BBC has been complicit, right? Farage gets more airtime than the entire Lib Dem contingent in Parliament. Why is that?
  • So who will you invite on to the Marr show to ensure political balance on this? 1) Katie Hopkins 2) John Humphrys 3) Jacob Rees Mogg 4) Nigel Lawson 5) Yet another lobbyist from the Tax Avoiders Alliance #BBCswitchoff
  • Hope you recognise the role the BBC has played in uncritically amplifying the faux patriotic anti-immigrant culture in which these extreme views have thrived. The media is complicit in the lurch to the right, BBCQT being a case in point.
  • Enabled, encouraged and supported by Pro-Brexit supporters like YOU Marr.
  • Maybe if the BBC stopped platforming fascists?!
  • Says the person who defended interviewing & broadcasting Le Pen on Remembrance Sunday. Take responsibility for the part you play in what's happening Andrew Marr.
  • The irony is that it's been BBC journalists giving people like this a free pass for years, normalising this stuff through the likes of Hopkins, Farage and all the others you give publicity & easy rides to. You need to take a long, hard look in the mirror...
  • You gave an unchallenged platform to Marine Le Pen on Armistice Day. What did you think would be the outcome of that? The BBC news and current affairs department have promoted the far right for years.

James Tracy: In Solidarity with Alex Jones: US News Media Targeted Professor for Questioning Sandy Hook While Failing To Do Theirs Fake News Indeed

Mr. President,

I am a former Associate Professor of Journalism and Media Studies at Florida Atlantic University (FAU). In early 2013, I became the target of a smear campaign led by prominent news media after I questioned coverage of the 14 December 2012 Sandy Hook massacre. The media called on FAU to fire me because of my concerns. I therefore appreciate your clear condemnation of the Mainstream Media (MSM) for fake news where those posing as journalists spread falsehoods and propaganda.

As a student of news narratives for nearly two decades, I observed several contradictions and anomalies in the medias presentation of the Sandy Hook event. Following the shooting, for example, emergency response protocols were abandoned and first responders were refused entry to school grounds. Authorities apprehended an alleged gunman but placed him in the front seat of a police car.

On 15 December 2012, the Connecticut State Coroner responsible for conducting the victims autopsies, H. Wayne Carver, M.D., joked and snickered about the childrens horrendous demise on national television. Astonishingly, he could not answer even the simplest forensic questions about their deaths.

Some independent researchers have suggested crisis actors or role players were posing in the events immediate aftermath as members of the victims families. Although hundreds of families had been affected by the school shootingwhere 469 allegedly required evacuation, according to the official report-only a select few repeatedly appeared in video interviews.

When I found evidence that the Obama administrations DHS had actually contracted with acting troupes for emergency exercises, including one called, Crisis Actor, my suspicions began to grow. The Newtown incident had occurred just a month after the reelection of a president who vowed to undermine the 2nd Amendment, whose administration carried out Operation Fast and Furious and who, in advance of his second inauguration, a month and two days later, signed 23 executive orders implementing various forms of gun control.

Heute kommt hier dieser FAZ-Artikel rein, und ich wollte erst meinen Augen nicht trauen. So viel Falschdarstellung und Spin kennt man sonst eher von der taz. Es geht um den aktuellen Internetzensurvorsto. Ich zitiere mal:

Schon sehr frh machte die einzige Abgeordnete der Piraten-Partei, Julia Reda, Front gegen die Vorschlge. Sie nutzte fr ihre Kampagne sehr starke Verzerrungen und Vereinfachungen. Die Wortkombination Linksteuer, mit der Reda den Artikel 11 der Richtlinie bekmpfen wollte, ist zwar wunderbar kurz, aber allen Ernstes zu glauben, es gbe eine Steuer (die ja bekanntermaen die Finanzmter einholen) auf das Verlinken von Texten, hat etwas unfreiwillig Komisches.
Wow, mit so billiger Sophisterei kmpfen die? Da krieg ich ja fast ein bisschen Mitleid. Wenn das das beste "Argument" ist, was die haben, dann gute Nacht.
Nicht viel besser war der Kampfbegriff Upload-Filter gegen Artikel 13 der Richtlinie. Upload-Filter stehen nach wie vor nicht in der Vorlage, der Begriff eignet sich aber gut, um Angst zu schren. Es ist Julia Reda tatschlich gelungen, einigen ihrer Anhnger vorzumachen, dass knftig alles im Internet gefiltert wird, wenn die Richtlinie zum Urheberrecht so durchkommt und Memes ja, die geliebten Memes wrden smtlich verboten.

Dass in der Richtlinie etwas vllig anderes steht, interessiert nur am Rande. Ihr zufolge wren Plattformen (und nur diese) angehalten worden, fr User Uploaded Content, also von Nutzern hochgeladene Inhalte, Lizenzvereinbarungen mit den jeweiligen Rechteinhabern beziehungsweise Verwertungsgesellschaften zu schlieen.

Ihr seht schon, WAS GANZ ANDERES!!1! Nicht das GANZE Internet wre zensiert! Nur der Teil, bei dem man was hochladen kann!1!!

Diese Art von Artikel ist ja leider in der FAZ keine Seltenheit. Stellte sich nur noch die Frage, ob das im Politik- oder im Wirtschaftsteil lief, wo diese Art von Industrieabfall sonst verklappt wird. Und es stellt sich raus: Das kam im Feuilleton!

Wow. OK, das hat den Vorteil, dass es sich um einen Gastartikel handelt, und wir sehen knnen, wer sich so dermaen krass entbldet hat.

John Brennans Useful Idiocy For Stalinism and Sharia "IndyWatch Feed"

Guest post by Dr. Andrew Boston:

Five years before the October, 1917 Bolshevik Revolution would begin to impose Communist totalitarianism on Russia, Henry C. Vedder, observed in his 1912 study of Socialism, that the Marxist Social Labor Federation of Britain had adopted Karl Marxs Das Kapital [Capital] as their infallible authority, an article of faith from which they will permit no dissent, on pain of excommunication. Vedder, a Professor of Church History at the Upland, Pennsylvania Crozer Theological Seminary, added that this British Marxist organization rejected the orthodoxy of its own votaries unless they professed as their creed, There is no God, and Karl Marx is his prophet  mirroring the Islamic declaration of faith, or shahada. The late doyen of Islamic studies, Bernard Lewis, underscored how this summation of the Communist creed captured the real affinity between totalitarian Communism, and Islam, in a 1954 essay.

Both groups [i.e., adherents of Islam or Communism] profess a totalitarian doctrine, with complete and final answers to all questions on heaven and earth; the answers are different in every respect, alike only in their finality and completeness, and in the contrast they offer with the eternal questioning of Western man. Both groups offer to their members and followers the agreeable sensation of belonging to a community of believers, who are always right, as against an outer world of unbelievers, who are always wrong. Both offer an exhilarating feeling of mission, of purpose, of being engaged in a collective adventure to accelerate the historically inevitable victory of the true faith over the infidel evil-doers. The traditional Islamic division of the world into the House of Islam and the House...


12 solutions to the UK housing crisis "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

The opaquely funded hard-right think tank IEA has offered a 50,000 prize for an essay outlining a strategy for dealing with the housing crisis. I'm obviously not going to win it with this article given that they're stipulating that the proposal must be a right-wing market based strategy, which is lunacy given that the housing crisis has actually been caused by decades of right-wing market based housing policy. 

As far as I'm concerned a right-wing market based solution to a problem caused by right-wing "leave it to market forces" ideology meets Einstein's definition of insanity; doing the same things over and again, but expecting different results.

So I won't be winning the IEA prize, but the challenge did get me thinking about strategies to deal with the housing problem. Here are 12:

Stop the social housing fire sale

The first, and most obvious step is petting an end to the disastrous fire sale of social housing at way below market value under the Right to Buy scheme. 

The fact that 40% of Right to Buy former social housing properties have ended up in the hands of private landlords is compelling evidence that this scheme was never actually motivated by a desire to increase home ownership at all, but by an ideologically driven desire to ruin social housing provision.

I do believe that social h...

Immigrants Speak Out Against Cuomo, 2341 "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

This is a paid sponsorship by: Virtual Shield VPN - the easiest way to create a home VPN. Go to: Good morning, Im still reporting on: Immigrants Speak Out Against Cuomo, 2341 Synopsis: The story you are about to see was the prevailing attitude towards immigrants coming into the United States - until just a few years ago. The essence of good immigration was to let people in who loved this country and the freedoms and opportunities in provided. That was back in the days before handouts were so plentiful, but immigrants back then didnt expect handouts. They just wanted a safe place where they could work in an honest system that allowed you to raise your family in safety and achieve all their dreams. There is no other nation ever created that allows this kind of class mobility in the history of the world. But the left has abused that notion, and now, leftist politicians race each other to bash the America that was, and instead of promoting safety and more freedom, they promise only the biggest handouts to the most people.

Do The Republicans Have An Ace Up Their Sleeves For November? "IndyWatch Feed"

Last week, Seor Trumpanzee schlepped his fat ass to upstate New York to campaign for Congresswomen Elise Stefanik (NY-21) and Claudia Tenney (NY-22). Stepfanik didn't want one of his raucus, hate-filled. red-meat rallies so they orchestrated a bill signing ceremony at Fort Drum. Trump managed to make a spectacle of himself anyway, signing the John S. McCain National Defense Authorization Act without mentioning John McCain's name.

Later he went down to Utica, to hold a high-dough fundraiser at the Doubletree Hotel for Tenney. He called her wing-wing Blue Dog opponent, Anthony Brindisi, "a puppet of Nancy Pelosi" and babbled one of his inauthentic, one-size-fits-all lines about how Tenney won't have a problem beating him. Outside the event there were about 100 racist Trump supporters screaming about illegals. They were out-numbers by protesters. Two days later Inside Elections changed the rating for Tenney from Tilt Republican to Toss Up. Nathan Gonzales also changed ratings for Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA), Mike Coffman (R-CO), Pete Roskam (R-IL), and John Faso (R-NY). He also changed the ratings for the open CA-49 race (Issa's seat) and for Barbara Comstock's race to Tilt Democratic from Toss Up. In all. he shifted 30 races away from Republicans and towards Democrats. He said the Republicans aren't facing a wave as much as raging fires. "Whether its GOP Members in Hillary Clinton districts, extraordinary Democratic challengers and fundraising, competitive open seats, or lazy incumbents," wrote Gonzales, "Republicans have dozens of fires around the country, and the party might not have enough resources to put them all out."

I'm not so sure about that "might not have enough resources to put them all out" resources. Conservative billionaires are ready to spend more money than on any midterm in history. According to a NY Times report yesterday, the GOP tax scam that is so unpopular with ordinary Americans is a...

Will American Sanctions Bring Iran to Its Knees? "IndyWatch Feed War"

Arabic media review

Will American sanctions bring Iran to its knees? The Arab media debates the U.S. decision to impose harsh sanctions on Iran both pro (Saudia Arabia) and anti (Lebanon). Read what they are saying:


Long-Term Effects of Americas Sanctions on Iran Asharq al-Awsat (Saudi Arabia)

America most likely will not topple the Iranian regime in short-term, but the sanctions will definitely be felt in the long-term. Iran still has the economic partners of China and India. With these partners, Iran will be able to ride the wave of the sanctions in the short-term effect, but in the long term, the forecast is dark.

The Iranian people expected that the nuclear deal and its ensuing freeing of funds would help them economically, but that didnt happen, and the short-term economic relief provided by Irans partnerships with China and India will not be enough to answer local demands.


Irans New Plan to Confront America: No War and No Negotiations El-Nashra (Lebanon)

The U.S. has decided that striking Iran economically is a priority. Just like it is doing with Turkey, the U.S. finding that economic war is more effective than military war.

The Supreme Guide of Iran, Ali Khamenei, has put forth a clear picture of how Iran is dealing with the crisis. He has forbidden any Iranian official from negotiating with America saying, We dont want a war with America and we dont want to negotiate with the US. America has proven its lack of credibility in any negotiations, thats why it is forbidden for any Iranian official to negotiate with anyone on the American side. If we decide to negotiate one day, it definitely wont be with the current administration and not with the current terms that it has imposed.

The Iranian government expects that the impact o...

Forget Your Son: Brazil Is Forcibly Taking Indigenous Children and Putting Them Up for Adoption "IndyWatch Feed"

I practiced my greetings in Guarani several times before approaching lida Oliveira. lida, who doesnt speak Portuguese, had arrived that morning in the town of Amambai, in the state of Mato Grosso do Sul, deep in Brazils agricultural heartland and less than an hours drive from Paraguay. She was accompanied by officials from Funai, the federal agency responsible for indigenous affairs in Brazil. lida had traveled there to explain how, three years earlier, local health agents and representatives of the municipal Guardianship Council in the city of Dourados, where she lives, had arrived to remove her newborn child from her custody.

The child, they took him when he was only 8 days old. She asks that you not take away her children again.

Two-hundred women listened in silence to lidas testimony, given in her native language Guarani, an indigenous language of central South America. A local named Wanda Kua Rendy had volunteered to translate lidas words to Portuguese for the authorities in attendance, but she was only able to get through a few sentences before bursting into tears. The child, they took him when he was only 8 days old, Rendy said. She asks that you not take away her children again.

lida smiled when I asked for an interview, but she was hesitant to allow her youngest child to leave her lap as we recorded. As a researcher, I had prepared to attend the sixth annual Kuangue Aty, a large gathering of women from the Kaiow and Guarani indigenous communities, to focus on the prayers and songs that marked the nights and days of the meeting, from the initial reception to the final debates. As an ethnographer or a reporter, however, I was compelled to pay attention to the issues afflicting the human beings involved. Why has the number of indigenous children in institutional care increased so much in the last year? I wondered. Janete Alegre, organizer of the Amambai meeting, asked, Is there now a law that says indigenous children must be taken from their indigenous families and given to the whites?

In the sprawling municipality of Dourados alone with a population of some 200,000 people in an area twice the size of Los Angeles 50 indigenous children were living in shelters at the end of 2017, according to a study by the Funai Regional Office. By July 2018, 34 remained separated from their families. I discovered the stories of lida and other mothers in Dourados are just the tip of the iceberg. Uncountable communities suffer from the complex problems associated with the state taking indigenous children from their families. There are indications of even more serious irregularities in the processes where the children are taken, which have been monitored since 2010 b...

Rebecca Campbell: Iowa High Court Nullifies Flawed U.S. Supreme Court Fourth Amendment Precedent "IndyWatch Feed War"

New AP Iowa High Court Nullifies Horrible U.S. Supreme Court Fourth Amendment Precedent

A recent ruling by the Iowa Supreme Court effectively nullified bad U.S. Supreme Court precedent in the state. The decision was a win for privacy and demonstrates the how state-level action can undermine overreaching federal power.

the Iowa court refused to apply the SCOTUS loose interpretation of the Fourth Amendment to Article 1 Sec. 8 of the Iowa Constitution. Writing for the majority, Justice Brent Appel asserted that the Iowa court is the ultimate arbiter for the meaning of the Iowa Constitution, saying that the Iowa courts jealously reserve the right under our state constitutional provisions to reach results different from current United States Supreme Court precedent under parallel provisions.

Robert David STEELE Vivas

ROBERT STEELE: For some time now I have felt that a Constitutional Convention is needed to nullify a number of amendments that have chipped away at state rights. The Federal Reserve should be neutered and the federal income tax done away with (states should apportion money for approved balanced budget submitted by the federal administrative service of common concern to the states); and Senators should once again be appointed by and represent their states, not the public in the states, which is...


Sanctions, Sanctions, Sanctions-The Mania Of Imperial Washington "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

Sanctions left and sanctions right. Financial mostly, taxes, tariffs, visas, travel bans confiscation of foreign assets, import and export prohibitions and limitations; and also punishing those who do not respect sanctions dished out by Trump, alias the US of A, against friends of their enemies. The absurdity seems endless and escalating exponentially, as if there was a deadline to collapse the world. Looks like a last-ditch effort to bring down international trade in favor of what? Make America Great Again? Prepare for US mid-term elections? Rally the people behind an illusion? Or what?

Afghanistan: The War That Shames America "IndyWatch Feed Asia"

Nobody in Washington can enunciate a good reason for continuing the colonial war in Afghanistan. One hears talk of minerals, womens rights and democracy as a pretext for keeping US forces in Afghanistan. All nonsense. A possible real reason is to deny influence over Afghanistan, though the Chinese are too smart to grab this poisoned cup. They have more than enough with their rebellious Uighur Muslims.


Keynote: Future of Healthy Longevity "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

Lincoln Cannon asked me to do a talk a few months ago for the MTA. It was a good time. I learned a lot from the other speakers. Bryan Johnson opened the event and it was interesting to learn about his path and vision for the future. I would like to see many more people in his position. My goal is to make many millionaires out of biotech visionaries through the BioViva platform so that they can reinvest into great tech. Thanks, Lincoln and Bryan!

At the 2018 Conference of the Mormon Transhumanist Association, held 7 Apr 2018 at the Marriott Hotel and Conference Center in Provo, UT, speakers addressed the themes of Mormonism, Transhumanism and Transfigurism, with particular attention to topics at the intersection of technology, spirituality, science and religion. Members, friends and critics of the association have many views. This is one of them. It is not necessarily shared by others.

Sennheiser Surrounder - Surround yourself with oddness "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

The Sennheiser Surrounder is a personal surround-sound neck-worn speaker. On paper this doesn't sound like a bad idea, however reality has a way of ruining things. This was a ridiculous device that's just the right side of crazy to make it interesting.

If I were running a different kind of youtube channel I'd wear this on a bus or a train and have a friend with a camera capture video of everyone's annoyed and baffled reaction. That sounds like it would probably get a few million views. However I don't really do that kind of thing and I don't have a friend to hold the camera so here's a much less entertaining video about the Surrounder instead. Enjoy(?)

Vatican completely SILENT on the shocking pedophilia, child rape and child abuse carried out by 300+ Catholic priests and staffers in America "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"


 A prominent member of the Roman Catholic Church has come forward with some scathing words for Pope Francis, the man whom the Jesuits believe is a representative of Christ on earth, and who thus far refuses to address or even acknowledge the recent revelations about rampant pedophilia among priests in the state of Pennsylvania.

John Nolte, who writes for BreitbartThe Daily Wire, and various other news outlets is disgusted that Francis cant be bothered to take time away from his busy schedule preaching about global warming and climate change to even make mention of the hundreds of Catholic clergy who have now been outed for molesting, raping, and even ritualistically abusing thousands of young boys and girls over the past 70 years.

Where is the compassionate, accessible Wheelchair Pope, the Energizer Bunny Pope, the Cynicism-Busting Pope who has always been so eager to comment on every hot button issue, from Global Warming to immigration to homosexuality? asks Nolte in a recent editorial piece for Breitbart.

I know where Francis is not. He is not where he should be, in Pennsylvania overseeing a revolutionary and historic house cleaning of a satanic cancer that infects his Church, a 70-year-old cancer of priests and bishops and cardinals who are guilty of either engaging in an organized cabal to rape little boys and girls, or in covering up those unspeakable crimes.

NASA Wants You to Design Their Robot "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

No one loves a good competition more than Hackaday. We run enough to keep anyone busy. But if you have a little spare time after designing your one inch PCB, you might check out the competition to develop a robotic arm for NASAs Astrobee robot.

Some of the challenges are already closed, but there are quite a few still open for a few more months (despite the published closing date of and these look like great projects for a hacker. In particular, the software architecture and command, data, and power system are yet to start.

But dont let the $25,000 fool you. Thats spread out over a number of awards for the entire series. Each task has an award that ranges from $250 to $5,000. However, you also have to win that award, of course. If you register, however, you do get a sticker that has flown on the space station.

If you havent seen Astrobee, it is a flying robot made to assist astronauts and cosmonauts on the International Space Station. The robot is really a floating sensor platform that can do some autonomous tasks but can also act as a telepresence robot for flight controllers. You might enjoy the second video below if you havent seen Astrobee, before.

We covered the Astrobee before. If youd like to visit the space station yourself, it isnt quite telepresence, but Google can help you out.


750 U.S. communities have successfully built their own private internet networks to avoid big telecom monopoly "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

The internet situation in the U.S. is becoming more desperate every single day. Between the seemingly unlimited rights of Internet Service Providers (ISPs) to do pretty much anything they want with their customers to the unbelievable lack of choices in many locations and the horrendously slow service and after-sales support being offered to paying users, it doesnt look like things are going to improve any time soon.

However, there may be a silver lining in the cloud of terrible internet in the U.S., and it may be within reach for most municipalities if only they would take matters into their own hands. According to information presented by the Institute for Local Self-Reliance (ILSR), a non-profit organization that advocates for local economies, there are now more than 750 different communities located all over the country that have successfully installed their own broadband networks. This is according to a freshly updated map that they have made available online as part of their ongoing efforts to document local initiative to fight against abusive ISPs.

According to a report on the Institutes latest update, there are currently at least 55 different municipal networks that are up and running, serving more than 108 communities with their very own publicly owned fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) internet network. At the same time, there are at least 76 communities that are able to offer locally owned cable network access, and that there are also more than 258 communities currently being served by a rural electric cooperative.

In case youre wondering, the reason why these municipalities have begun to embrace alternatives to the standard methods of accessing cable and internet in their locations is that it is simply impractical not to do so. One recent Harvard study has shown that community bro......

After Alligator Lost Tail to Poachers, Scientists 3D-Printed Him a New One "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

By Amanda Froelich,

Meet Mr. Stubbs, an alligator who lost his tails approximately eight years ago. The incident occurred when the alligator was being illegally transported by animal traffickers. In 2013, Mr. Stubbs was found in the back of a semi-truck, along with other exotic animals. His rescuers took him to the Phoenix Herpetological Society. There, he was fitted with his first prosthetic tail. The appendage was made from the cast of a similarly-sized deceased alligator.

As National Geographic reports, the prothetic proved to be a bit clunky. This is because each alligator has a center of mass and buoyancy unique to itself. Mr. Stubbs didnt have the easiest time moving around and eventually, grew out of this and subsequent artificial tails.

In the five years that have passed, technology has advanced significantly. This prompted Justin Georgi, an associate professor of anatomy at Midwestern University in Glendale, Arizona, to replace the tail of Mr. Stubbs. The masters student was in search of a project and considers Mr. Stubbs to be a local legend.

Georgi collaborated with the local company STAX3D to use an Arctic 3D scanner. Their efforts resulted in a specialized appendage for Mr. Stubbs. They got the resolution where features even below the millimeter scale were visible and usable, said Georgi, who specializes in the locomotion of large-bodied reptiles. Watching it happen there...

In Case You Were Wondering About Our Omarosa Coverage "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

Did you see our excellent story this week on Omarosa? No? Dont worry, you didnt miss it we didnt cover that shit.

So why did we spend our week writing about a brewing international crisis between two NATO powers that could threaten Europes (and therefore the worlds) financial stability, a humanitarian disaster nobody talks about, the 5-year anniversary of a shameful Supreme Court decision that has had a devastating impact on US democracy, a landmark climate change lawsuit, a computer hardware problem that could impact election security, and the future of conservatism without mentioning Omarosa once even though all other news outlets seemed to be tripping all over themselves to breathlessly cover her every move and President Donald Trumps reaction?

Here is a hint: We are a nonprofit news organization. Our primary goal is to provide you with information we believe you ought to know. Most of the others are for-profit news businesses. While they also want to provide you with information, their primary goal is to sell ads and make money.

That means we didnt cover Omarosa because we didnt have to.

Honestly, why would we? Its a stupid sideshow that distracts from the very real problems the country is facing. And if youre not convinced by now that President Donald Trump is a bit of a racist and likes to play footsie with white nationalists, then a...
