Lunar Station Training Module Summary

by Karma Zarenzi

So, to me, it feels like Alien or interdimensional language translation. Id say a more symbolic language to translate. Egyptian hieroglyphs come to mind. I recently went to a museum and thought, whoa I know what those symbols MEAN. So, these symbols appeared on my laptop in a Word doc, like a symbol font language.

Symbol Font Text, picture of the screen after the font changed.

It looks like a floor plan of a Lunar Base.


This is on the Moon inside the Moon, within a giant structure full of technology never seen before. The crew ship is located in-between the giant floors, where the outrageous wide-open space is less unnerving, and more comfortable to the way we are used to being enclosed. Being in a smaller space makes us feel safer.

(Photo: JOE KLAMAR/AFP/Getty Images)Protest in Vienna during the talks between Iran and world powers to negotiate a nuclear agreement with the Islamic Republic (Photo: JOE KLAMAR/AFP/Getty Images)

An Iranian citizen pleaded guilty in a U.S. court to charges that he attempted to facilitate smuggling nuclear technology to Iran in violation of U.S. laws.

Arash Sepehri, 38, faces a minimum of five years in prisons for trying to obtain and export to Iran high-resolution sonar equipment, data input boards, rugged laptops, acoustic transducers and other controlled technology from the U.S. without obtaining proper licenses and in violation of economic sanctions.

Sepehri was an employee and a member of the board of the Iranian company Tajhiz Sanat Shayan (TSS) according to court documents.  TSS and other companies involved in the conspiracy were also listed by the European Union as entities sanctioned for their involvement in the procurement of components for the Iranian nuclear program.

As stated in the court documents, Sepehri and his co-conspirators sought to evade legal controls through a variety of means, including the use of a variety of aliases, United Arab Emirates (UAE)-based front companies and an intermediary shipping company based in Hong Kong.  Payments for the goods were arranged through the UAE, read a statement from the Department of Justice.

Iran has a history of trying obtain illegal nuclear technology. Since the nuclear agreement was made with world powers in 2015, Iran tried to obtain nuclear, chemical, biological and missile-related technology from Germany in violation of the agreemen...


Democrats want Beto ORourke to run again, and soon "IndyWatch Feed War"

Democrats want Beto ORourke to run in 2020 for the White House or Senate they dont really care for which; they just want him on the battlefield.

ORourke may have lost to Cruz in ruby red Texas Tuesday night, but he lost like no Democrat has in 20-plus years. ORourke came within 2.6 percentage points of Cruz, radically boosted turnout among young and minority voters, and he raised an ungodly amount of money.

Image result for white house, photos

Critics pointed to the plethora of profiles written about ORourke for the mania surrounding the 46-year-old politician daring to run statewide in Texas, but the crowds came before the profiles. As ORourke traveled non-stop to all 254 counties in Texas his profile grew outside of the Lone Star State. Videos went viral of his answers to questions about NFL players kneeling in protest of police brutality against African Americans during the national anthem, or of his riding a skateboard in a Whatabuger parking lot.

He absolutely should consider running, Rep. Mark Veasey, D-Texas, said of a possible ORourke presidential run. It would be unwise for him to not to.

What Beto did, he changed Texas and put Texas in play, Veasey said, making clear that he hasnt endorsed anyone in the 2020 presidential contest.

Image result for Beto ORourke, photos

ORourke said he definitively will not run for president when asked in the aftermath of his loss, but a number of Democrats are already in his ear trying to change his mind. Fellow Texas Democrat Rep. Filemon Vela was with ORourke on election night and in the days since has urged ORourke to visit Iowa where presidential dreams get their start.

The excitement ORourke has generated among Democrats is palpable. At an election night party for a House Democrat in Virginia Tuesday, the loudest cheers outside of those for the local candidate Jennifer Wexton came when early results showed ORourke with a slight lead (only 2 percent of precincts were reporting at the time.)

Throughout the campaign, Veasey said he received texts from p...

Leaders meet in Italy to find settlement in Libya "IndyWatch Feed War"

A gathering of leaders of Libyas quarrelling factions and of countries keen on stabilizing the North African nation opens Monday in Sicily, aimed at finding a political settlement that would bolster the fight against Islamic militants and stop illegal migrants crossing the Mediterranean to Europes southern shores.

Italys Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte and his Libyan counterpart Fayez Al-Sarraj previously met in Italy ahead of the Palermo conference. (File/AFP)

But the meetings chances of success appear uncertain, not least because of the difficulties involved in any attempt to get all stakeholders two rival administrations, unruly militias with considerable firepower and an ambitious army general to agree on a road map that would reunite Libya after seven years of chaos and bloodshed while not infringing on their current spheres of power.

Image result for Khalifa Haftar, pictures

Gen. Khalifa Haftar, commander of the self-styled Libyan National Army, is unlikely to go to the Palermo event, according to officials close to him. The Egyptian- and UAE-backed Haftar, who also maintains close ties with France, views the meeting as lacking a clear agenda and designed largely as a media event favoring Italy, the host, according to the officials who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to brief the media.

Haftars absence would render the meeting largely irrelevant.

Dealing a further blow to the meetings chances of success, some European heads of state that Italy had hoped would come including US President Donald Trump and Russias Vladimir Putin are also staying away, sending lower-ranking State Department or Foreign Ministry officials instead.

Frances foreign minister is expected, and Italian Premier Giuseppe Conte will be greeting arrivals Monday evening, ahead of the first event, a closed-door dinner.

Italy has for years nervously eyed a lawless Libya across the Mediterranean. Like other European nations, Rome wants to contain the threat of militants based there carrying out terror attacks on its territory and the danger of a continuous flow of migrants arriving by sea.

With hopes already effectively dashed that this weeks meeting would gather all the delegations from Libyas main factions in one room, Italian daily La Stampa on Saturday noted th...

Hillary Will Run Again "IndyWatch Feed War"

Reinventing herself as a liberal firebrand, Mrs. Clinton will easily capture the 2020 nomination.

Its been quite a journey. In July 1999, Mrs. Clinton began her independent political career on retiring Sen. Daniel Patrick Moynihans farm in upstate New York. Her Senate platform included support for a balanced budget, the death penalty and incremental health-care reform. It was a decisive break from her early-1990s self. Hillary Clinton 2.0 was a moderate, building on the success of her communitarian It Takes a Village appeals and pledging to bring home the bacon for New York. She emphasized her religious background, voiced strong support for Israel, voted for the Iraq war, and took a hard line against Iran.

Image result for Hillary Clinton , photos, JEFF SWENSEN

But Hillary 2.0 could not overcome Barack Obama, the instant press sensation. During the 2008 presidential campaign, Mrs. Clinton held fast to centrist positions that would have assured her victory in the general election. But progressive leaders and donors abandoned her for the antiwar Mr. Obama. Black voters who had been strong Clinton supporters in New York and Arkansas left her column to elect the first African-American president. History was made, but not by Mrs. Clinton. Though she won more delegates from Democratic primaries, activists in caucus states gave Mr. Obama, who had called her likable enough, the heartbreaking win.

Licking her wounds, Mrs. Clinton served as secretary of state while she planned her comeback. It was during this time that the more liberal Hillary 3.0 emerged. She believed she could never win a primary as a moderate, so she entered the 2016 primary as a progressive like Mr. Obama. Then she moved further left as Sen. Ber...

Inside story: the Bush gang "IndyWatch Feed World"

Barrick Gold, caught scrambling for loot amid the corpses in
Zaire, is a corporate front for the George Bush-allied covert
political apparatus. The Canada-based Barrick is Bushs only
known current business enterprise. The company, which
Bush now personally leads, was created by Bushs political
partners-British elite narcotics financiers, and arms traffickers
and money launderers.
Using the influence of this political faction, Barrick acquired
important interests, first in the United States, then in
Canada and South America. In South America, as Barrick
boasts in its 1995 annual report, the company has an aggressive,
long-term approach, with mines and projects established
in strategic locations in Argentina, Chile, Peru, Bolivia, and
Brazil. Almost two-thirds of the exploration and development
drilling budget will be spent in South America, where
the company has decided to focus its efforts, the annual
report states. In addition, with its intended conquests in Indonesia
and Africa, the firm now says it aims to move from third
to first among the worlds largest gold mining companies.
We present here the results of EIRs investigation of the
Bush company, centering on the following principal figures:
George Herbert Walker Bush, whose father was a partner
in the powerful London-controlled private banking firm
Brown Brothers Harriman. Relevant to the Barrick story,
Bush was U.S. vice president and chief of covert operations
in the Reagan-Bush (1981-89) administration, and U.S. President
(1989-93). As a former President and power broker, Bush
is Barrick Gold Corp. s chief lobbyist, a stockholder in Barrick,
and honorary senior adviser to Barricks international
advisory board.
Adnan Khashoggi, a Bush-allied Saudi billionaire and
arms trafficker, founder of the Barrick Gold Corp.; famous
for his illegal weapons sales to Iran.
Peter Munk, a business failure who became a protege of
the British royal family, and Khashoggis partner. Munk is
chairman of Barrick Gold Corp.
Brian Mulroney, Canadian prime minister (1984-93)
and George Bushs errand boy; Barrick Gold lobbyist and
director, Bushs lieutenant on the Barrick international advisory
Barrick Gold was founded in Toronto, Canada, in 1983
The majority investment in the firm was held by Khashoggi
and his arms-trafficking partners, who were just then gearing
up the Iran-Israel-Nicaragua guns and cocaine tangle which
would explode in 1986 as the Iran-Contra scandal.
The nominal chief of Barrick Gold was Peter Munk, a


BRICS: A Future in Limbo? "IndyWatch Feed War"

The BRICS are not what they intended to be, never really were.

Today its clear that fascist-turned Brazil is out so we are at RICS. There is not much to argue about. The worlds fifth largest economy, Brazil, has failed and betrayed the concept of the BRICS and the world at large. Whether you consider South Africa as a valid member of the BRICS is also questionable. Much of SAs social injustice has actually become worse since the end of apartheid. Ending apartheid was a mere political and legal exercise.

Distribution of power and money in SA have not really changed. To the contrary, it worsened. 80% of all land is still in the hands of white farmers. This is what President Cyril Ramaphosa wants to change drastically, by confiscating white farmers land without compensation and re-distribute it to black farmers, who have no formation of how to run these farms. This is not only utterly unjust and will create internal conflicts, the last thing SA needs, but it is also very inefficient, as farming and agricultural production will decline most likely drastically and SA, a potential exporter of farm and agricultural goods, will become a net importer, a serious hit on South Africans economy.

The principle of redistributing land to the black African society is a solid one. But not by force and not by confiscation without compensation, nor without an elaborate training program for African farmers to lead to a peaceful transfer all of which does takes time and cannot happen over-night. There are too many example of hush-hush land reforms that failed miserably and actually plunged entire societies into poverty and famine. Land reforms YES, but planned and well organized and strategized. Land reforms are long-term propositions. To be successful, they dont happen over night.

On a recent trip to SA, I spoke to several black people, including especially women from townships; i.e., SOWETO, who said they were better off under apartheid.

It is not a scientific statistic, but the fact that some black people dare say that the system that atrociously discriminated, exploited and raped them, was better than todays non-apartheid system, is significant. It is a sad testimony to a generation of SAs democracy.

So, now we could say, the BRICS are down to RIC Russia, India and China.

Does India deserve to belong to a club that has as a goal equality and solidarity?

The caste system, about which very little is written, is a horrible, horrible mechanism of discrimination. And there are no efforts under way to abolish it. To the contrary. The Indian elite likes it it provides cheap labor. Its actually legalized slavehood, totally submissive to the upper class, the higher castes. Its cultural, they say. Is such injustice excusable under principles of tradition? Hardly...


The Realist View of the Midterms "IndyWatch Feed World"

QUESTION: Mr. Armstrong; Your take on the midterm elections is that the Democrats really failed and simply won a symbolic victory?

Thank you


ANSWER: Yes. The Democrats keep making lower highs and deeper lows. They do not review the major trend nor are they willing to revise their central theme.  While the Democrats won the majority in the US House of Representatives can blow their horn really loudly, are a more important shift in domestic power balance has taken place. Trumps gains in the Senate demonstrate that his election was not a fluke. The FOX poll that showed more Republicans identified with Trump than the Republican Party demonstrates above all the trend is away from both party mantras.

The possible consequences of the Democratic House victory will probably lead to the banter of impeachment, but they will lack the votes in the Senate where a trial would have to take place. That means this will be just a dog and pony show. Mueller will dop his best to try to prosecute Trump for something because4 that is the Deep State goal. We are also likely to see important implications for Trumps foreign policy. By and large, the Democrats will press their revenge against Russia and the talk is they would love nothing more than war with Russia. They will keep stirring the pot to achieve that goal and they will do their best to try to block anything Trump does regardless if it is good or bad for the country. This is all about winning in 2020 right now.

Democrats may be pushing for changes in the defense budget including the attempt to block new low-yielding tactical nuclear weapons targeted by the Trump government. There will be more pressure to get results in
Afghanistan or to demand a withdrawal blaming Trump for that mess as well despite the fact he did not start it the confrontation there. The Democrats will also push for an end to the Yemen war and a blockade of arms sales to Saudi Arabia. Nevertheless, keep in mind that Trump has a lot of room for foreign affairs, but the US House of Representatives can shed light on fraudulent or failed political initiatives with a spotlight for political brownie points with again an eye on 2020.

When people die in actual fact --- as opposed to dying on paper due to government-led legal chicanery --- they leave behind their earthly possessions. By laws long established, their assets are passed on to their heirs. And that's that.

If their heirs lose those inherited possessions by fair means, there is no recourse for that.

If their heirs are the victims of fraud, however, there is recourse.

We, the American States and People, have been the victims of fraud.

Ramses and his Heirs just had bad luck.

They ran into the Romans, remember? And then the Romans ran into the Visigoths? (They were also my ancestors, BTW.) And then the Visigoths married into the French Celtic Kingdoms and that gave rise to the trans-English Channel Kingdom of Camailoth circa 500 A.D. ..... and that gave rise to William of Normandy.... who controlled both England and large sections of France...and that led to the Amoricans settling in England and Ireland and to their eventual migration to guess where?



France's Macron: Nationalism Is A Form Of Treason "IndyWatch Feed World"

While hosting an assembly of other fiat criminal organization leaders to commemorate the centennial of the 1918 Armistice, France's Macron stated that nationalism is a form of treason against "our values" (archived). He repeated tired Pantsuit talking points in a effort to cleave nationalism out of the definition of patriotism, by suggesting patriotism involves necessarily loving the Nation of Africa as much as one's own country. Further, the proponent of femal senior intergenerational marriage called for an era of progess built from "science", presumably using the common Pantsuit misconception of science as a belief system.

GEORGIA ELECTION UPDATE: Kemp's Lead Shrinks, Abrams to File New Lawsuit 
Abrams campaign readies federal lawsuit seeking more ballots to be counted

November 10, 2018

The Georgia governors race between Stacey Abrams and Brian Kemp has not been called yet.  The states votes, in which Kemp has the lead, are expected to be certified next week.

The unsettled race for Georgia governor tightened over the weekend as Democrat Stacey Abrams prepared litigation to force the counting of more provisional ballots, while Republican Brian Kemps campaign said her refusal to concede was a disgrace to democracy.

The clash heightened as a cache of 5,500 provisional and mail-in ballots were reported that showed Kemps lead over Abrams shrinking slightly to about 59,000 votes. Some came from counties that days earlier reported all votes had been tallied.

The newly-reported votes overwhelmingly tilted to Abrams and triggered a wave of celebration for Abrams supporters. But she still needs to net about 22,000 votes to force a Dec. 4 runoff, and there arent many votes that have yet to be reported.

Its unclear, however, just how many votes are still outstanding. Kemps campaign said there are so few remaining that its mathematically impossible for Abrams to win, but the Democrat said theres a larger cache of votes still unreported.

No major media outlet has yet called the race, and with a margin this tight they are likely awaiting the certification of the votes this week. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution does not call election contests.

Abrams hopes rest largely on provisional ballots cast by voters whose information often could not be immediately verified at polling places. Not all the ballots will be counted, but the Democrat hopes there are enough to gain ground on Kemp.

Race is not over

A federal lawsuit readied by the Abrams campaign could change the dynamic.

It asks the court to require absentee ballots rejected for arbitrary reasons, such as a mistake in a birthdate or missing information, to be counted. As many as 2,000 ballots were dismissed because of such problems.

And it would require counties t...

US Polls Neither Free Nor Fair
Mehdi Hasan

Voter suppression. Disenfranchisement. Gerrymandering.

Can (last) Tuesdays midterms in the United States really be considered free and fair elections? Perhaps we should consult with the experts.

Few Americans have heard of the Organisation for Security and Co-operation in Europe; even fewer are aware that OSCE observers have been keeping tabs on US elections since 2002, at the invitation of the US State Department.

On October 26, the OSCEs Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights in Washington, DC, issued an interim report on the 2018 midterms. It didnt make for pleasant reading.

The right to vote is subject to many limitations, warned the report, with racial minorities disproportionately impacted.

This isnt the first time the OSCE has sounded the alarm.

In the wake of the 2016 presidential race, OSCE observers praised the US for holding a highly competitive election while also criticising a campaign characterised by harsh personal attacks, as well as intolerant rhetoric and changes to election rules that were often motivated by partisan interests, adding undue obstacles for voters.

Suffrage rights, the 2016 observers concluded, were not guaranteed for all citizens, leaving sections of the population without the right to vote.

Is that what a free and fair election is supposed to look like?

It should be a source of shame that the United States, once held up as a model to emerging democracies around the globe, now needs outside observers to remind it of its most basic democratic obligations.

The OSCE mission to the US began in 2002, in response to the serious shortcomings in the 2000 presidential election, which saw tens of thousands of black voters in Florida purged from electoral rolls and prevented from voting.

But have these international observers succeeded in nudging the US in a more democratic direction? Not quite.  The OSCEs final report on the 2016 presidential election issued a series of recommendations to US officials, including:

To meet requirements regarding the equality of the vote, states should consider the establishment of indepe...

Zimbabwe Bread Supply Begins to Normalize
Zimbabwe Sunday Mail

Bread supplies have markedly improved after millers upped flour deliveries to bakers from 200 tonnes per day last month to 650 tonnes.

Bakers require about 800 tonnes of flour daily, and supplies are expected to normalise in a fortnight.

More than 200 trucks were dispatched to the Port of Beira, Mozambique last week to complement rail deliveries.

The National Railways of Zimbabwe has been moving an average of 20 wagons daily against a target of 60 wagons, which caused supply bottlenecks on the local market.

Grain Millers Association of Zimbabwe chairperson Mr Tafadzwa Musarara told The Sunday Mail last week that they were expecting flour supplies to bakers to normalise by November 25.

Small bakeries and confectionaries, who had been cut off last month, are now receiving supplies.

We have procured another shipment of about 30 000 metric tonnes of wheat which will be docking at Beira on November 25. If this consignment is paid for in time we should have enough supplies for the festive season, said Mr Musarara.

The country is now on a recovery path and as of (last Friday), our flour supplies to bakeries have risen to about 70 percent and we anticipate that in the next 10 days, we should be able to meet demand.

This improvement is because of the Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe, which has paid in full the entire wheat consignment we received last month.

Wheat harvests will augment supplies.

Zimbabwe expects to harvest between 120 000 and 200 000 tonnes of wheat about half of annual national requirements.

Panic buying has not helped the situation, with indications being that where Zimbabweans consumed 1,2 million loaves of bread daily, demand had shot up to 1,8 million loaves in the past two months.

Hundreds Flee After Boko Haram Raid in Northeast Nigeria

Hundreds of villagers fled their homes in Nigeria's northeast late on Saturday after an attack by militants from the Boko Haram group, militia officials and witnesses said.

No casualties were reported but the raid highlighted fragile security in Nigeria's northeast, where the army is still battling to end a conflict that erupted in 2009.

Militants arrived in trucks in Jimmi, 5 km (3 miles) from Maiduguri city, and opened fire, setting homes ablaze and also attacking an informal refugee camp.

"Boko Haram terrorists this evening attacked Jimmi village," militia leader in Maiduguri Musa Ari said. They burnt homes in Jimmi and tents in the camp."

Military authorities scrambled reinforcements and fighter jets to repel the attack, said militia leader Ibrahim Liman.

Panicked villagers from the area fled to nearby Maiduguri, capital of Borno state which along with neighboring Yobe state has been at the center of the militant insurgency.

"We left our village to escape Boko Haram who attacked our neighbors in Jimmi," said Bale-Shuwa village resident Suleiman Balarabe.

He said villagers saw military jets flying overhead towards Jimmi.

"The sounds of guns coming from Jimmi terrified us and made us leave our homes because we were afraid they were going to attack our neighborhood," said Sanda Gini, a resident of Jiddari-Polo area on the outskirts of Maiduguri.

In April, scores of Boko Haram fighters launched a gun attack on Jiddari-Polo when they advanced on Giwa barracks where hundreds of their militant comrades are being detained.

Insurgents fired automatic weapons and rocket-propelled grenades at troops before they were repelled with aerial support.

Despite government insistence Boko Haram militants are near defeat, in recent months the militant group has carried out major attacks on...

Nigeria Court Refuses to Release Zakzaky on Bail
Wed Nov 7, 2018 05:36PM

A Nigerian court has refused to grant bail to top Muslim cleric Sheikh Ibrahim Zakzaky, days after more than 40 of his supporters were killed during protests demanding his release.

Zakzaky, the leader of Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN), has been held in detention since December 2015 and was charged just in April with murder, culpable homicide, unlawful assembly, disruption of public peace and other accusations. He has pleaded not guilty.

 The court refused to grant him bail," Zakzakys lawyer Maxwell Kyon said.

His legal team had urged his release, saying he is suffering from health issues that require urgent medical care abroad but the court denied the request.

But the state high court in the northern city of Kaduna said on Wednesday that no substantial medical evidence was provided to grant Zakzaky bail.

Zakzaky would remain in custody throughout the period of his trial. The upcoming hearing will take place on January 22.

"We are disappointed with the court's decision," said Ibrahim Musa, an IMN spokesman.

He stressed that Zakzaky should have been granted bail due to poor health, adding that "We will keep on with our protests in Abuja and other cities."

The hearing comes after several peaceful protests staged by IMN supporters last month in demand for Zakzakys release. Nigerian security forces opened fire with live ammunition on IMN members in the capital, Abuja, leaving 47 people killed.

Before Zakzaky was charged, the Nigerian government has refused to set him free despite the ruling of a Federal High Court, which ordered Zakzakys unconditional release in 2016.

The top cleric, who is in his mid-sixties, lost his left eyesight in a raid which was carried out by the Nigerian army on his residence in the northern town of Zaria in December 2015.

During the raid, Zakzakys wife sustained serious wounds too and more than 300 of his followers and three of his sons were killed. Zakzaky, his wife, and...

Top Saudis Discussed Assassinating Irans General Soleimani in 2017, Sources Tell NY Times
Sun Nov 11, 2018 08:54PM

Irans Major General Qassem Soleimani, the commander of the Quds Force of Irans Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC)

Saudi Major General Ahmed al-Assiri, who has allegedly been fired over killing of Jamal Khashoggi, took part at a meeting in Riyadh in 2017 that involved plans to assassinate the kingdoms determined enemy, Irans Major General Qassem Soleimani as well as sabotaging Irans economy, The New York Times reports, citing three sources familiar with the matter.

The March 2017 meeting in Riyadh, brought together businessmen that pitched a $2 billion plan to use private intelligence operatives to sabotage the Iranian economy, read the report released Sunday.

Top Saudi intelligence officials close to Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman asked a small group of businessmen last year about using private companies to assassinate Iranian enemies of the kingdom, it said.

As the meeting came at a time that bin Salman was consolidating his power in the kingdom, the report concludes that planning for assassinations, like that of dissident journalist Khashoggi, started since the beginning of Prince Mohammeds ascent.

Assiris top aides also inquired about killing Irans General Soleimani as the attendees were trying to win Saudi funding for their plan, read the report by the US daily.

Irans foreign ministry has accused Washington of seeking to wage an extensive psychological war against Tehran, insisting that such US measures are not worthy of much concern.

The new revelation adds to the embarrassment the US ally is facing in the wake of Khashoggis assassination at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul as well as violation of human rights in the war on Yemen.

The interest in assassinations, covert operations and military campaigns like the war in Yemen overseen by Prince Mohammed is a change for the kingdom, which historically has avoided an adventurous foreign policy that could create instability and imperil Saudi Arabias comfortable position as one of the worlds largest oil suppliers, added the report.

Saudi-led Invaders Face Stiff Resistance in Push to Seize Hudaydah
Sun Nov 11, 2018 08:38AM

Yemeni officials say a massive Saudi push against Hudaydah on the west coast of Yemen has been defeated, with a number of Sudanese mercenaries killed or captured. 

Based on reports, fighting reached residential streets on Sunday, with locals and Houthi fighters mounting fierce resistance to the invaders.

Medics and military sources say more than 60 combatants have been killed on both sides over the past 24 hours.

A source with the Saudi-led militants was quoted by Agence France-Presse as saying that the toll included more than 40 Houthi fighters and about 20 loyalists to the former Yemeni regime.

The invaders have been pushing to enter the strategic port city since 10 days ago, trying to advance on Hudaydah's docks which are the lifeline for vital humanitarian aid to the impoverished country.

Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates have deployed thousands of additional troops after seeing their campaign launched in June to seize Hudaydah thwarted by Houthi fighters and their allies in the Yemeni army.

On Saturday, reports suggested the invaders had seized the main hospital in the city. The invading forces also saw the Jabaliyah and Matineh areas in Hudaydah retaken by the city's protectors.

According to AFP, Hudaydah fighters have put up fierce resistance to the Saudi push towards the city's vital docks, which are the point of entry for 80 percent of Yemen's commercial imports and nearly all UN-supervised humanitarian aid.

The recapture of Jabaliyah cut supply lines to the invaders, drawing praise from Sana'a-based Yemeni Defense Minister Major General Mohamed Nasser al-Atefi.

"The aggressors were defeated with all their power and equipment," he said in remarks aired on al-Masirah TV as he praised "the children of Tihamah," referring to the general area in Yemen's west coast.

"The children of Tihamah proved to the Yemeni nation that they are ready to sacrifice their lives in defending the west coast....

Battle for Hodeidah: More Than 40 Houthis Killed in 24 Hours
Al Jazeera

Pro-government forces close in on rebel-held Yemeni city, killing at least 43 Houthis in ground offensive and air raids.

At least 43 Houthis have been killed in Yemen's flashpoint city of Hodeidah over the past 24 hours as pro-government forces close in on rebel-held areas in the east of the city.

Medics at a hospital in Hodeidah said on Sunday the Houthi fighters had been killed in overnight ground fighting and air attacks by a Saudi-UAE alliance supporting Yemeni troops.

A source at Hodeidah's military hospital told the AFP news agency that dozens of wounded rebels were transferred to hospitals in the provinces of Sanaa and Ibb, further inland.

Meanwhile, a source at a hospital in the government-held town of Mocha, about 170km south of Hodeidah city, said that nine Yemeni soldiers had been killed in clashes there.

Hodeidah, a large city on Yemen's Red Sea coast, is the latest battleground between the Houthis and the Saudi-UAE alliance which has been fighting for control over the country for the past three and a half years.

Since November 3, there have been more than 200 air attacks reported in the city, with the AFP reporting at least 400 dead fighters.

The United Nations has put the civilian death toll at 23 and has said that about 445,000 civilians have been internally displaced.

'Victory is coming'

On Saturday, Yemeni forces seized Hodeidah's main hospital and an industrial complex as they pressed further into the city.

"Today, with God's help, we've been able to take over Thabit Brothers Industrial complex in the east of the city," said a fighter from the Amalqa (Giants) Brigade, a military unit loyal to the Yemeni government.

"In the next hours, we'll have control of more areas of the city. Victory is coming."

Aid agencies have long warned that fighting in Hodeidah risks escalating the country's dire humanitarian crisis.

More than 70 percent of the country's food, aid, fuel and commercial goods used to enter into Yemen through the city's port.

Mariam Aldogani, Save the Children's field coordinator, spoke of intense air raids in the city.

Street Battles Rage in Yemen's Hodeidah, Civilians Caught in Crossfire
Mohammed Ghobari

ADEN (Reuters) - Street battles raged on Sunday in residential areas of Yemens main port city of Hodeidah, forcing medical staff to flee the largest hospital, as Houthi insurgents tried to repel forces backed by a Saudi-led coalition.

Residents said they saw bodies of seven civilians killed in clashes in southern suburbs, with both sides using mortar shells, anti-aircraft guns and assault rifles in the fight for the Houthi-held city, a lifeline for millions of Yemenis.

The coalition has renewed its offensive on Hodeidah as Western allies, including the United States, called for a ceasefire to support U.N.-led efforts to end the nearly four-year war that has killed more than 10,000 and pushed the country to the brink of starvation.

Medical sources at al-Thawra hospital told Reuters that several staff members and patients able to move had fled the complex. It was not immediately clear how many patients remained inside.

The Houthis are reinforcing their positions near the hospital and that is what scared people, said one staff member.

Hospital spokesman Khaled Attiyah told Reuters that doctors and nurses continued their work in departments such as intensive care, the burns ward and the emergency room despite the panic.

Last week, rights groups said the Houthis had raided the May 22 hospital in the citys eastern suburbs and posted gunmen on the roof, endangering doctors and patients.

The United Nations and aid groups have warned that a full-scale assault on Hodeidah, an entry point for 80 percent of the countrys food imports and relief supplies, could trigger a famine in the already impoverished Arabian Peninsula state.

More than two dozen senior Obama administration officials, including former National Security Advisor Susan Rice and former CIA Director John Brennan, called on U.S. President Donald Trump to cease all support for the war.

In a telephone call with Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman on Sunday, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo reiterated Washingtons call for a cessation of hostilities and for all parties to come to the table to negotiate a peaceful solution to the conflict, the State Department said....

Enemy warplanes attempted to support its forces by conducting dozens of airstrikes However, its forces failed to achieve any advance in the field, Brig. Gen. Sari added.

According to the Yemeni military spokesman, the Houthis killed 40 Saudi-backed Yemeni fighters and injured 60 others during the clashes around al-Hudaydah. 12 military vehicles of the Saudi-led coalition were also destroyed with anti-tank weapons.

The Houthis didnt only repel the new attacks, but also struck several positions and gathering of Saudi-led coalition troops on the western coast of Yemen with artillery and armed drones, according to the Yemeni al-Masirah TV.

Why Yemeni War Deaths are Five Times Higher Than Youve Been Led to Believe "IndyWatch Feed War"

By Nicolas J S Davies, CounterPunch

Photo Source Felton Davis | CC BY 2.0

In April, I made new estimates of the death toll in Americas post-2001 wars in a three-part Consortium News report. I estimated that these wars have now killed several million people.  I explained that widely reported but much lower estimates of the numbers of combatants and civilians killed were likely to be only one fifth to one twentieth of the true numbers of people killed in U.S. war zones. Now one of the NGOs responsible for understating war deaths in Yemen has acknowledged that it was underestimating them by at least five to one, as I suggested in my report.

One of the sources I examined formy report was a U.K.-based NGO named ACLED (Armed Conflict Location and Event Data Project), which has compiled counts of war deaths in Libya, Somalia and Yemen.  At that time, ACLED estimated that about 10,000 people had been killed in the war in Yemen, about the same number as the WHO (World Health Organization), whose surveys are regularly cited as estimates of war deaths in Yemen by UN agencies and the worlds media.  Now ACLED estimates the true number of people killed in Yemen is probably between 70,000 and 80,000.

ACLEDs estimates do not include the thousands of Yemenis who have died from the indirect causes of the war, such as starvation, malnutrition and preventable diseases like diphtheria and cholera. UNICEF reported in December 2016 that a child was dying every ten minutes in Yemen, and the humanitarian crisis has only worsened since then, so the total of all deaths caused directly and indirectly by the war must by now number in the hu...


Armistice Day First "IndyWatch Feed War"

By John LaForge

It gets harder to commemorate World War I, because of time and the publics embrace of, or indifference to, a permanent war economy.

About the Great War British novelist H.G. Wells wrote on August 14, 1914, This is already the vastest war in history. For this is now a war for peace. It aims straight at disarmament. It aims at a settlement that shall stop this sort of thing for ever. Every soldier who fights against Germany now is a crusader against war. This, the greatest of all wars, is not just another war it is the last war!

Optimists said it would be short, Home by Christmas! Instead, it was the worst bloodbath to date with an estimated 16 to 37 million dead. Combat and other acts of war killed at least seven million civilians and more than 10 million military personnel, while diseases, hunger, pogroms and targeted genocide killed millions more. Rather than for ever stopping war, the unprecedented wartime profiteering and victors imposition of vengeful reparations set the stage for World War IIs 70 million fatalities, and the nearly continuous string of money-making legalized murder that has continued since. One low estimate is that since war to end all war, about 100 million people have died in war zones.

Armistice Day was established in 1919 to revere the peace, and to remember and commemorate WW Is the suffering, horror, fear, pain, and loss. In 1918, the headlines roared: Armistice Signed, End of the War! and Armistice Day was grounded in the near universal revulsion against wars dreadful costs, futility, graft, pointlessness and particularly against the corruptions and cold ambitions of the politicians who prolonged the conflict. Todays US government annually spend hundreds of billions on weapons production jobs that our xenophobic fearmongering and its consequent wars sustain. As long as US allies keep trading their oil and cash for US guns, even barbaric, medieval dictatorships like Saudi Arabia (which has beheaded 600 prison convicts since 2014) are coddled, pampered, guided and supplied militarily in its ghastly war of deliberately induced pandemics and malnutrition against Yemen.

In September 2014, on a visit to Italys largest military cemetery, the Pope warned of a piecemeal World War III that may have already begun with dozens of ongoing, undeclared wars, official crimes, state-sponsored fighter jet and drone attacks, and specialized commando raids the world over. A short list of current warring includes US combat in Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Syria, Yemen, and Somalia; civil wars in Nigeria, Maghreb, Libya, and South Sudan; and the Mexican drug war. Pope Francis said about all this, Even today, after the second failure of another world war, perhaps one can speak of a third war, one fought piecemeal, with crimes, massacres, and destruction.

British and Israeli Assistance to U.S. Strategies of Torture and Counter- insurgency in Central and Latin America, 1967-96: An Argument Against Complexification

Ian Almond1

Although the role of the U.S. in supporting the anti-democratic, counter-revolutionary movements, governments, and dictatorships that flourished in Latin America from the 1960s to the 1990s is well known, this article examines the support provided to the U.S. by other countries. Principally this support was provided by Israel and the United Kingdom, but other countries were also involved, such as South Africa, Taiwan, France, and even Saudi Arabia. The article argues that a clear material framework underlies the assistance given by these countries. It also identifies a number of cultural and historical reasons why anti-democratic governments in Latin America found particular political empathy in Israel.

Western media suddenly 'discovers' Saudi war crimes in Yemen from Khashoggi fallout "IndyWatch Feed World"

Nothing illustrates the cynical and deceitful nature of Western "journalism" better than the recent, apparent US-Saudi fallout in the wake of the alleged death of Washington Post Saudi correspondent, Jamal Khashoggi. Khashoggi allegedly disappeared and has been reported killed at the hands of Saudi consulate staff in Istanbul, Turkey. Of course, the US, UK, EU, Turkey, and Saudi Arabia are among the most dubious actors in modern geopolitics. Ascertaining the truth regarding the events surrounding Khashoggi may ultimately turn out to be an insurmountable task. But the various narratives and reactions of Western political and media circles still provides us insight into the true character of Western international relations including extreme hypocrisy regarding human rights, the use and abuse of Western media platforms to selectively cover events around the globe to favor Western interests, and the ultimate fate that awaits other US "allies."

Overview Of Battle For Yemen's Al-Hudaydah On November 11, 2018 (Map)

Click to see the full-size image

On November 11, forces of the Saudi-UAE-led coalition continued their push to capture the Yemeni city of al-Hudaydah from the Ansar Allah movement (also known as the Houthis). The current phase of the coalition forces advance is pursuing two main goals:

  • to encircle the city of al-Hudaydah;
  • to isolate the al-Hudaydah airport from the rest of the city;

If these goals are achieved, the coalition will be able to isolate two main resistance points of Ansar Allah and its allies in western Yemen from the rest of the Ansar Allah-controlled part of Yemen. Then, the coalition will be able to start storming the city itself engaging Ansar Allah forces by all existing means and mearues, including warplanes.

In turn, Ansar Allah is working to prevent the encirclement of al-Hudaydah. The most intense clashes are currently ongoing east of the city. At the same time, the Yemeni movement carried a successfull attack on supply lines of the coalition forces south of al-Hudaydah.

The ongoing battle for al-Hudaydah may become a turning point for the Saudi-UAE-led intervention in Yemen. If the coalition captures the city, it will increase its chances to take an upper hand in the conflict. However, if A...


Media, censorship and wars "IndyWatch Feed World"

Dr. David Hughes speaking in Lincoln, England on fake news, censorship and war

From the World Socialist Web Site in Britain:

10 November 2018

An important conference, held in Lincoln November 4 as part of the Economic and Social Research Councils Festival of Social Science, heard detailed reports on the relationship between media censorship and war.

Organised by Dr. David Hughes, Senior Lecturer in International Relations at the University of Lincoln, it was titled Scrutinising the Media: Fake News, Censorship, and War. An audience comprising students and concerned members of the public listened attentively and posed questions.

Hughes delivered three half-hour sessions, each followed by a 15-minute Q&A. War and the media provided examples of the ways in which the media has historically been used to condition public opinion in favour of war. Beginning with the Committee on Public Information in the United States (1917-1919, also known as the Creel Commission) and World War I, it worked forward to today and British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) coverage, or non-coverage, of the Saudi-led intervention into Yemen.

Media suppression of the My Lai massacre in Vietnam and US carpet bombing of Cambodia was cited, as was the use of a PR firm to train the daughter of the Kuwaiti ambassador to the US to fake an emotional testimony about Iraqi soldiers removing babies from their incubators to legitimise the 1991 Gulf War.

World leaders gather in Paris to mark 100 years since WWI Armistice "IndyWatch Feed War"

Leader of some 70 countries are commemorating the Armistice that ended World War One a century ago. Some 10 million soldiers lost their lives in the conflict.

Some 70 world leaders gathered at the famous Arc de Triomphe in the French capital, Paris, on Sunday to mark one hundred years since the end of World War One.

Commemorations in Paris had been scheduled to begin at 11 a.m. local time (1000 UTC), the time that the Armistice signed by the Allies and the Germans on November 11, 1918, went into force. However, the proceedings were slightly delayed, with leaders arriving too late for the exact moment.

The large number of countries represented in Paris reflects the widespread nature of a conflict in which an estimated 37  million people, including 10 million soldiers, lost their lives. The city of Paris itself was a key objective in the war, with the Allies fighting successfully against German efforts to capture it in 1914.

The solemn ceremony, held in rainy conditions, featured schoolchildren reading moving messages written by soldiers in eight languages, as well as musical performances, including by French-born Chinese-American cellist Yo-Yo Ma and West African singer Angelique Kidjo.

Patriotism, not nationalism

French President Emmanuel Macron held an address in which he described the joy at the end of the conflict, but also remembered the horrors and millions of dead and wounded.

In his speech, he called the nationalism that underlay the war a betrayal of patriotism. He appealed for friendship and dialogue between the nations to create a peaceful future.

The old demons are rising again, Macron said. We must reaffirm before our peoples our true and huge responsibility.

World leaders gathered in Paris led global commemorations on Sunday to mark 100 years since the end of World War I at a time of growing nationalism and diplomatic tensions.

Around 70 leaders including US and Russian presidents Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin were marking the centenary of the 1918 Armistice in the French capital starting at 11 a.m. local time (1000 GMT).

Ceremonies in New Zealand, Australia, India, Hong Kong and Myanmar marked the start of the memorial events worldwide for a conflict that involved millions of troops from colonized countries in Asia and Africa.

The leaders of Commonwealth nations whose forces were deployed under British command 100 years ago also sounded a message of peace and hope for the world in the new century.

This was a war in which India was not directly involved yet our soldiers fought world over, just for the cause of peace, said Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Twitter on Sunday.

Houthi defector: Yemen situation ripe for swift completion of liberation "IndyWatch Feed War"

Conditions are ripe for the swift completion of the process of liberation of Yemen from the control of the Houthis, the militias propaganda chief said a day after deserting the group.

Speaking at a news conference in Riyadh on Sunday, Abdelsalam Jaber, the self-styled information minister, accused the Houthis of a long list of misdeeds, including turning state institutions into warring islands ruled by militias.

Abdelsalam Jaber said the Houthis would soon face defeat. (File/AFP)

Detainees in Houthi prisons are being treated inhumanely, Jaber said, adding that what was happening in Houthi-controlled areas is the work of militias that have competing centers of power.

Jaber is the most senior member of the Houthi militia to defect to the government side since the Yemeni war began in 2014.

Jaber arrived in Saudi Arabia with his family after fleeing the capital Sanaa, Moammer al-Iryani, information minister of the Yemeni government, said on Saturday.

Confirming the longstanding allegations that the Houthis were being aided by Iran and other countries, Jaber said Yemenis reject the foreign domination of the country.

Jaber said the Houthis dominance was in its final days, adding that the Yemeni people have rejected Houthi injustices and are waiting for an opportunity to get rid of them.

Jabers defection comes against a backdrop of continued clashes in the Red Sea port city of Hodeidah, a key facility that Yemeni government forces backed by a Saudi-led coalition are seeking to retake from the Houthis.

Fighting has flared in Hodeidahs east between the Houthis and government forces backed by air strikes and helicopters.

The battles here are turning into street fighting, a government official said on Saturday.

Government forces on Saturday recovered control of the May 22 Hospital as part of the offensive.

Amnesty International, the international human-rights watchdog group, has accused the Houthis of deliberate militarization of the hospital after they deployed snipers on its roof.

Hunter kills woman "IndyWatch Feed World"

This video is called Common pheasant (Phasianus colchicus).

Talking about pheasants; translated from Dutch NOS TV today:

Hunter in Slovakia shoots woman dead instead of pheasant

A hunter in Slovakia accidentally shot a 29-year-old woman instead of a pheasant. The victim had been hired as a driver to frighten the birds with her dog.

The hunter shot her in the back. The victim died in a hospital in the Slovak provincial capital Nitra. A police spokesperson says to the Slovakian news agency TASR that several hunters were present. It is still being investigated who exactly fired the deadly shot.

In Slovakia, more people have died during hunting in recent years. Experts say to local media that hunting has become a hobby of newly rich people without experience.

Also, often people are said to be drunk during large hunting parties, while that is illegal.

Probably a hunter like that other hunter who did not know the difference between a fellow hunter and a lion; like Dick Cheney in the USA does not know the difference between a fellow hunter and a quail. Like another hunter does not know the difference between a hare and a female cyclist.


World leaders hold solemn ceremony in Paris to mark WW1 Armistice centenary "IndyWatch Feed War"

Some 70 world leaders gathered under rainy skies at the Arc de Triomphe in Paris on Sunday for a solemn ceremony to mark the 100th anniversary of the end of World War One.

U.S. President Donald Trump, Russia President Vladimir Putin, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and dozens of monarchs, presidents and prime ministers from Europe, Africa, the Middle East and beyond joined French President Emmanuel Macron to mark the moment guns fell silent across Europe a century ago.

The commemoration is the centerpiece of global tributes to honor the 10 million soldiers who were killed during the 1914-18 war and the moment the Armistice, signed in northeastern France, came into effect at 11 a.m. on Nov. 11, 1918.

Brigitte Macron makes quick coat change before heading to Armistice Day event

As Trumps convoy was making its way up the Champs Elysees to the Arc de Triomphe, a bare-breasted protester from the Femen radical feminist group ran towards his motorcade, coming within a few meters, before being apprehended by police.

Photographs of the incident appeared to show that she had the words fake peacemaker scrawled across her body.

In a glass canopy at the foot of the triumphal arch, built by Emperor Napoleon in 1806, the leaders stood for the solemn ceremony. The last to arrive was Russias Putin, who shook hands with Macron, Merkel and then Trump, briefly giving the U.S. leader a thumbs up.

Macron stood to attention as a military band played the Marseillaise, the French national anthem, before walking through the rain to inspect troops. He then took his place under the Arc while cellist Yo-Yo Ma played a movement from a Bach symphony.


In a rare public display of emotion by the leaders of two world powers, Macron and Merkel held hands on Saturday during a poignant ceremony in the Compiegne Forest, north of Paris, where French and German delegations signed the Armistice that ended the war.

The conflict was one of the bloodiest in history, reshaping Europes politics and demographics. Peace, however, was short-lived and two decades later Nazi Germany invaded its neighbors.

On Sunday afternoon, Macron will host the inaugural Paris Peace Forum, which seeks to promote a multilateral approach to security and governance and ultimately avoid the errors that led to the outbreak of World War One.

Merkel said in a statement the forum showed that to...

ISIS Claims 6 Egyptian Troops Killed, 2 Vehicles Destroyed In North Sinai Attacks (Map Update) "IndyWatch Feed War"

Despite efforts of the Egyptian Army and security forces, the ISIS terrorist group is still calable of carrying out terrorist attacks in North Sinai.

According to ISIS-linked media, over the past week, the terrorist gorup has carried out 4 attacks in the region killing 6 soldiers and destroying 2 vehicles. 2 of the attacks reportedly took place in the city of Arish and in the village of Zoweid. 5 Egyptian soldiers were reportedly killed in these attacks.

In October, the Egyptian military announced that since the start of its operation against ISIS in North Sinai, the army and security forces had eliminated over 450 terrorists, including ISIS members. However, it seems that this was not enough to stabilize the situation in the province. ISIS still keeps a large presence there. One of the most problematic points is the border area between Gaza and Egypt.

The Child of Rage, Beth Thomas Taught the World What a Psychopathic Child Was Truly Like "IndyWatch Feed World"

It is no secret that the general population is somewhat obsessed with psychopathy. From horror movies, to serial killer documentaries, we just cant seem to get enough. But most people have only come to terms with adult psychopaths so the following may be a bit hard to stomach.

Beth Thomas case has been described as one of the worst cases of abuse of all time and even now that reigns true. You see, Beth was born into a family where she was being harmed by her father. He did unspeakable things to her for as long as he could. While she did end up getting adopted she suffered for far longer than she should have had to. At just 19 months old Beth had gone through hell time and time again. Beth had a younger brother named Jonathan who was also adopted by the same family.

As Beth grew up, it became quite clear that she was not normal. She never developed a conscious and was always wanting to hurt other people. She killed family pets, birds, and even tried to kill her brother on several occasions. Things got so bad that her adoptive parents had to lock her in her room at night while they slept. She even slammed her brothers head on the floor of their basement trying to end his life, he ended up quite tattered but was luckily rescued by their adoptive mother.

Beth became quite the name when she was featured in the 1992 documentary Child Of Rage. This documentary showed footage of her admitting to wanting to slaughter her family in their sleep. She was only six years old at the time of this documentary. Beth was a true child psychopath but also, a victim in more ways than you can imagine.

She was later diagnosed with RAD (reactive attachment disorder). This is a rare condition that happens when children are unable to make proper healthy attachments to caregivers due to extreme abuse. With her parents unsure of what to do they ended up finding the right person for the job. Therapist Connell Watkins helped the family by taking her into her home and working with her. She gave her intense restrictions and now Beth is able to be a functioning member of society.

That being said, while Connell was able to help Beth her practices are quite controversial as she was jailed not long after over the murder of another child who also had an attachment disorder. You see, this practice involves being wrapped in blankets and covered in pillows to recreate being born, a situation that makes it easy for a young child to be smothered or suffocate in general.

Congresswoman-elect Rashida Tlaib & Peace Activist Kathy Kelly Condemn Saudi Cruelty in Yemen

We turn now to the crisis in Yemen, where the U.S.-backed, Saudi-led coalition has drastically escalated its assault on the Yemeni port city of Hodeidah.

The Guardian reports there have been at least 200 airstrikes in the past week, killing at least 150 people. One Saudi airstrike destroyed a home in Hodeidah, killing a father and his five children.

The increased fighting comes as calls grow for a ceasefire to the 3-year war, which has devastated Yemen. On Thursday, a group of Yemeni and international organizations called for immediate cessation of hostilities in Yemen, warning that 14 million people were now on the brink of famine.

UNICEF has warned that the Saudi assault and blockade on Hodeidah is increasing shortages of food, drinking water and medicine. The group says a Yemeni child now dies from a preventable disease every 10 minutes.

In a World of Their Own "IndyWatch Feed World"

By downplaying and misrepresenting our environmental crisis, David Attenborough and the BBC have generated complacency, confusion and ignorance.

By George Monbiot, published in the Guardian, 7th Novemeber 2018


Knowingly creating a false impression of the world: this is a serious matter. It is more serious still when the BBC does it, and yet worse when the presenter is the most trusted man in Britain. But, as his latest interview with the Observer reveals, Sir David Attenborough sticks to his line that fully representing environmental issues is a turn-off.

His new series, Dynasties, will mention the pressures affecting wildlife, but Attenborough makes it clear that it will play them down. To do otherwise, he suggests, would be proselytising and alarmist. His series will be a great relief from the political landscape which otherwise dominates our thoughts. In light of the astonishing rate of collapse of the animal populations he features, alongside most of the rest of the worlds living systems, and when broadcasting as a whole has disgracefully failed to represent such truths, I dont think such escapism is appropriate or justifiable.

It is not proselytising or alarmist to tell us the raw truth about what is happening to the world, however much it might discomfit us. Nor do I believe that revealing the marvels of nature automatically translates into environmental action, as the executive producer of Dynasties claims. Ive come to believe it can have the opposite effect.

For many years, wildlife film-making has presented a pristine living world. It has created an impression of security and abundance, even in places afflicted by cascading ecological collapse. The cameras reassure us that there are vast tracts of wilderness in which wildlife continues to thrive. They cultivate complacency, not action.

You cannot do such a thing passively. Wildlife filmmakers I know tell me that the effort to portray what looks like an untouched ecosystem becomes harder every year. They have to choose their camera angles ever more carefully to exclude the...

Stacey Abrams Continues Struggle for Voting Rights in Georgia
Nov 10th 2018 7:14PM

ATLANTA (AP) Ahead by more than 60,000 votes days after Georgia's gubernatorial election, Republican Brian Kemp pushed for Democrat Stacey Abrams to concede Saturday as civil rights groups urged her to stay in the fight.

Kemp's campaign issued a statement that said it was mathematically impossible for Abrams to even force a runoff, much less win outright. It called Abrams' refusals to concede "a disgrace to democracy" that "completely ignore the will of the people."

But members of civil rights groups including the Atlanta-based Southern Christian Leadership Conference and the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People held a small rally urging Abrams to keep fighting until every vote is counted.

"That is a promise she made," said Ben Williams, president of the Cobb County branch of the SCLC, founded by the late Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.

Erick Allen, a black Democrat newly elected to the Georgia House, said allegations of voter suppression and questions about Election Day problems could dog Kemp as governor if he eventually prevails.

"The erosion in trust is done," said Allen.

Abrams is trying to become the first black woman elected governor in the United States, while Kemp is attempting to continue GOP dominance in a diversifying state that could be a battleground in the 2020 presidential election.

In a statement Saturday afternoon, she said she had met with voters who experienced difficulties casting ballots. She said her campaign had heard stories of voters turned away from the polls, students and military members who requested absentee ballots that never arrived or were "lost in the mail" and first-time and longtime voters who found their names were "no longer on the list."

She vowed to continue to fight.

"I am fighting to make sure our democracy works for and represents everyone who has ever put their faith in it. I am fighting for every Georgian who cast a ballot with the promise that their vote would count," Abrams added.

Unofficial returns show Kemp with 50.3 percent of almost 4 million total votes, a roughly 63,000-...

On November 10, Brigadier General Yahya Sari, a spokesman of the Yemeni Armed Forces [an ally of the Houthis], announced that the Houthis and their local allies had killed 180 Saudi-backed Yemeni fighters and destroyed 21 military vehicles of the Saudi-led coalition on the western coast of Yemen during the last 48 hours.

Enemy forces [Saudi-led coalition] attempted to advance towards the [al-Hudaydah] airport and north of the Kilo 16, however they failed thanks to the resistance of army forces and the popular committees [the Houthis], the Yemeni al-Masirah TV quoted Brig. Gen. Sari as saying.

The Yemeni military spokesman also said that the Saudi-led coalition has stepped up its aerial operations over the city of al-Hudaydah and the entire western Yemen coast in an attempt to reopen its supply routes. Few days ago, the Houthis managed to block four key supply routes south of the coastal city after a series of successful attacks.

Countries Selling Weapons to Saudi Arabia Weigh War Crimes Against Profits "IndyWatch Feed World"

The Trump administration announced Friday that it will stop refueling Saudi coalition aircraft, a move that will likely have little effect as the U.S. continues to carry out lucrative arms deals with the kingdom. Norway, meanwhile, announced Friday that it will suspend new licenses for export of arms and other military equipment to Saudi Arabia.

Global pressure is mounting for countries to stop sending arms and other assistance to Saudi Arabia, which is accused of facilitating the murder of Washington Post columnist and regime critic Jamal Khashoggi in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, Turkey. The Saudi-led coalitions airstrikes on Yemen have killed 57,500 people since 2016, and its blockade has caused a deadly famine and cholera outbreak. German Chancellor Angela Merkel said in October that Germany will no longer export arms to the kingdom and referred to Khashoggis murder as the monstrosity there in the Saudi consulate in Turkey.

Coalition airstrikes must cease in all populated areas in Yemen, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said last month. In August, a coalition airstrike in Yemen hit a bus filled with children returning home from summer camp, killing more than 50 people.

Donald Trump has touted a $110 billion weapons deal with Saudi Arabia. An accurate estimate is closer to $4 billion, which is nevertheless a massive amount of money. Saudi Arabia, for its part, has spent millions lobbying Washington.

There should have never been an execution or a cover-up, because it should have never happened, Trump said of Khashoggis killing. I would say it was a total fiasco from day one.

Military contractor Lockheed Martin CEO Marillyn Hewson said that the decision to sell arms to Saudi Arabia is entirely up to the government. We do business through the U.S. government. We take their lead on what we sell to 70 countries. Thats what w...


Ancient Egyptian cat, dung beetle mummies discovered "IndyWatch Feed World"

This 10 November 2018 video says about itself:

Egypt: Mummified cats, scarab beetles discovered in ancient tombs near Cairo

Seven ancient Egyptian tombs containing mummified cats and scarabs, have been discovered in the Saqqara necropolis, 30 km (19 miles) south of Cairo, according to an announcement by Egypts Minister of Antiquities Khaled El-Enany on Saturday.

Secretary-General of the Supreme Council of Antiquities, Dr Mostafa Waziri, said he believes this is the first time the preserved insects have ever been found, saying we asked museums in many countries if they have mummified scarabs, but no one have mummified scarabs till today.

Three of the tombs, which date back to the New Kingdom period and are between 3500 and 3000 years old, appear to have been used for feline burial as dozens of mummified moggies were discovered within, as well as wooden cat statutes and representations of the cat goddess Bast.

The other four tombs are believed to date from the Old Kingdom period and are thus at least 4000 years old.

Translated from Dutch NOS TV today:

Civilian Deaths in Yemen Increasing Despite U.S. Assurances "IndyWatch Feed World"

CAIRO Airstrikes by Saudi Arabia and its allies in Yemen are on a pace to kill more civilians than last year, according to a database tracking violence in the country, despite the United States repeated claims that the coalition is taking precautions to prevent such bloodshed.

The database gives an indication of the scope of the disaster wreaked in Yemen by nearly four years of civil war. At least 57,538 people civilians and combatants have been killed since the beginning of 2016, according to the data assembled by the Armed Conflict Location & Event Data Project, or ACLED.

That doesnt include the first nine months of the war, in 2015, which the group is still analyzing. Those data are likely to raise the figure to 70,000 or 80,000, ACLEDs Yemen researcher Andrea Carboni told The Associated Press. The organizations count is considered by many international agencies to be one of the most credible, although all caution it is likely an underestimate because of the difficulties in tracking deaths.

The numbers dont include those who have died in the humanitarian disaster caused by the war, particularly starvation. Though there are no firm figures, the aid group Save the Children estimated hunger may have killed 50,000 children in 2017. That was based on a calculation that around 30 percent of severely malnourished children who didnt receive proper treatment likely died.

Renewed uproar over the destruction has put Washington in a corner. The U.S. has sold billions of dollars in weaponry to Saudi Arabia, backing the fight to stop Shiite rebels known as Houthis, who Washington and the coalition consider a proxy for Iran.

That along with tensions over the killing of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi inside the countrys consulate in Istanbul may be key factors why Defense Secretary Jim Mattis and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Oct. 30 made their biggest push yet for an end to the war, calling for a ceasefire within 30 days and resumed negotiations.

Only a month earlier, Pompeo gave a powerful show of support to the coalition by certifying to Congress that Saudi Arabia and its allies were taking measures to prevent civilian casualties. Certification was a required step in continuing U.S. aid, which includes providing intelligence used in targeting and mid-air refueling for coalition planes.

But deaths from the coalition campaign show no sign of slowing.

Coalition airstrikes and shelling killed at least 4,489 civilians since the beginning of 2016 nearly three-quarters of all known civilian deaths, according to ACLEDs figures.

As of Nov. 3, at least 1,254 civilians were killed by the coalition this year, a rate of four a day. In comparison, 1,386 civilians died in strikes the previous year, or 3.79 a day.



BRICS: A future in limbo? "IndyWatch Feed World"

Today it's clear that fascist-turned Brazil is out - so we are at RICS. There is not much to argue about. The world's fifth largest economy, Brazil, has failed and betrayed the concept of the BRICS and the world at large. Whether you consider South Africa as a valid member of the BRICS is also questionable. Much of SA's social injustice has actually become worse since the end of apartheid. Ending apartheid was a mere political and legal exercise. Distribution of power and money in SA have not really changed. To the contrary - it worsened. 80% of all land is still in the hands of white farmers. This is what President Cyril Ramaphosa wants to change drastically, by confiscating white farmers land without compensation and re-distribute it to black farmers, who have no formation of how to run these farms. This is not only utterly unjust and will create internal conflicts, the last thing SA needs, but it is also very inefficient, as farming and agricultural production will decline most...

The real death toll might be even higher, the author warns.

US to stop refueling Saudi coalition planes indiscriminately bombing Yemen "IndyWatch Feed World"

The Saudi-led coalition fighting in Yemen is opting to refuel its aircraft independently going forward, ending a controversial collaboration with US military assets. The Saudi Press agency released a statement on Saturday explaining that the coalition was able to "increase their capacity" for refueling their aircraft and would do so independently going forward. US Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis confirmed the decision was made in consultation with the US government. On Friday, Reuters reported, citing unnamed US officials, that Washington was considering ending the refueling of coalition aircraft in Yemen, citing both the coalition's own increased capabilities and growing international outrage over the human consequences of the war in Yemen. Opposition to US collaboration with the Saudi coalition in Yemen has increased following the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul.

Really, battle between who?

It was not the battle between Republic vs Democrat.

It was the battle between US Patriot vs Foreigner interest (here is mainly current stupid China Government & Russia). Most of you do not know but most foreigner treat USA as a colony nation.

It was the battle between gold-backed money vs land-backed money.

To make it easily for understand, if the democrat won the Senate => gold-backed currency, if Republic won the Senate => land-backed currency.

The current fiat system in public affair must change, the interest % must gone for most human cannot handle it.

As a leader of the United State, do you want limited Gold-backed currency sent by the Asian/African or the absolute control Land-backed currency?

Easily land-backed, unless youre the corrupt people like most of the Democrat who are basically the foreigners installed & controlled.

The Senate mean everything because it relate to over 7 billions people affair while the House only the domestic US affair.
