Is Populism a Problem? a story for the World Forum for Democracy 2017 "IndyWatch Feed Politics.eu"

If youve ever shared a room with an elephant you know what matters isnt the presence of an unpredictable beast what matters is the fragility of that room.

lead MANILA, Nov. 14, 2017 (Xinhua) -- Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte speaks at a press conference after the closing ceremony of the 31st Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) Summit. Rouelle Umali/Press Association. All rights reserved.Fuck you, EU Why are you complaining so much about me threatening the criminals the European Union now has the gall to condemn me. I repeat it, fuck you!

Those are the words of my countrys president, Rodrigo Duterte, whom you may have heard of. Clearly, hes a colorful guy, Barack Obama said, after Mr Duterte called him a son-of-a-whore for criticising human rights violations occurring now in the Philippines.

Shocking, isnt it? I see concern in your faces. How could such a beast come to power, when the Filipinos you know are warm, hard-working, law-abiding? Among such wonderful people, how could a ruler like Duterte be so popular?

Its a long story. Ill start at the end.

Last year, on the final day of campaigning before our presidential election, I attended the rallies of each of the five candidates. I didnt go to hear the politicians, because they usually make the same promises. No, I went to understand the concerns of the voters to learn the hope behind their vote.

In one rally, voters believed in the patron who provided for their city. At another rally, members of the middle class supported the incumbent party and its promises of economic prosperity. At a third, the disenfranchised had faith in the compassion of a moviestars daughter. At the fourth, students voting for their first time were co...

Ambassador to Gabon and So Tom and Principe: Who Is Joel Danies? "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

The West African nations of Gabon and So Tom and Principe are getting a new ambassador courtesy of Donald Trump. On October 27, 2017, he nominated Joel Danies for the job. A career foreign service officer, Danies has served as associate dean of the School of Professional and Area Studies, a unit of the Foreign Service Institute that offers training in foreign affairs specialties, since July 2016. If confirmed by the Senate, Danies would succeed Cynthia Akuetteh, who has served in Libreville, Gabon, with concurrent accreditation to So Tom and Principe, since August 2014. It would be the first ambassadorship for Danies.

 

Born April 1, 1958, in Jacmel, Haiti, to Edgard and Marie-Thrse (Boucard) Danies, Joel Edgard Danies earned a B.S. in Zoology/Animal Biology at Loyola College Maryland in 1977 and a B.A. in Political Science and Government at the University of Maryland College Park in 1979. Years later, he earned an M.S. in National Security Strategy at the National War College in 2010.

 

Danies worked for USAir (now US Airlines) before joining the State Department as a Foreign Service Officer in September 1987. Early assignments included general services officer in Sanaa, Yemen, and consular officer and staff assistant to the Ambassador, at the U.S. Embassy in Paris. In 1994, he was a spokesman for Rep. Porter Goss (R-Florida).

 

He served as management officer and charg daffaires in Belmopan, Belize, during and after Hurricane Mitch in October 1998, when Danies used his authority to declare a disaster in order to allow U.S. aid to begin flowing. In 2001, he moved to the U.S. mission in Geneva, Switzerland, serving as senior human rights officer. In 2004 he was bumped up to political counselor there. His next stop was as post management officer in the Bureau of European Affairs. In 2005, he also served as a member of the U.S. delegation to the United Nations Commission on Human Rights. Still in the Bureau of European Affairs, Danies, in 2007, moved up to program analyst and undersecretary for management.

 

In 2010, Danies traveled to Kabul, Afghanistan, to serve as deputy director of the International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Division at the U.S. Embassy.

 

From September 2011 to 2014, Danies served as deputy Haiti special coordinator, helping his native land recover from the devastating...

Judge Jeanine Blasts Jeff Sessions, 1894 "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

- PrepareWithBill - Food Storage You Can Depend On. 888-756-8727 https://preparewith.com/Bill.Still Good morning, Im still reporting on: Judge Jeanine Blasts Jeff Sessions, 1894 Synopsis: Judge Jeanine Pirro blasted the Clintons and their Uranium One deal, but mostly from the aspect of why hasnt the Attorney General done something about it all. [insert : up to you should now.] This is the second time in a week that I have not agreed completely with Judge Jeanine. The first time was when she came out against Judge Roy Moore. I think Judge Pirro just got swept up in a tidal wave of opinion when the herd led by Mitch McConnell turned on Judge Moore. At this point, the evidence is clear that Judge Moore has been vindicated. But this second difference of opinion puts me out on an even more tenuous limb. This opinion will be counter to what most of you believe. I watched the entire Sessions appearance before the House Judiciary committee this week up until their break for a vote and lunch. I saw all the clips she just used of the various congress-folk all good people, interrogating Sessions - and although I know I could easily be wrong, Im thinking hoping that Sessions has this under control. I sympathize with Sessions because he is like myself not a good extemporaneous speaker when under any sort of pressure. [insert: I dont know what the problem is to Why isnt this in front of a grand jury?] Your Honor, with respect - but how do you know that it is not in front of a grand jury? Grand juries are typically conducted in secret.bb What if we are just so used to having a Justice Department which does everything wrong, that we arent being patient enough when things are being done right. There are rumors out there that 842 sealed indictments were issued by the Justice Department between Oct. 30 through November 10th. Of those, 323 are in California yup, thats a whopping 38%. If you throw in Washington, D.C., Maryland, and Northern Virginia where over 90% of the swamp-dwelling lobbyists live, thats an additional 15% of the total. If you throw in the New York City area and the Philadelphia area, thats another 138 sealed indictments, or 16% of the total. So, those 4 areas would represent 70% of these rumored indictments.

D.A. are the initials of his longtime legal secretary, Delbra Adams. The revelation, which came yesterday crushed Democrat hopes of taking Moore out of the Dec. 12th race to replace Sen. Jeff Sessions vacated seat. Delbra Adams worked for Moore for 13 years. She told Breitbart yesterday that she never saw or experienced any inappropriate conduct towards women. I think hes a good man. I dont believe any of this. I never saw anything like that out of him. Adams initials D.A. were mistakenly thought to be a part of Judge Moores name by someone amateurishly forging his signature in the high school yearbook of Moores latest accuser, Beverly Nelson. Nelson had a copy of Judge Moores signature because incredibly, he was the judge in her divorce, so she naturally had a copy of those divorce papers.

'Fake diplomacy': Haley says US ready to 'fight for justice' in Syria without UN approval "IndyWatch Feed World"

The US does not consider itself constrained by the United Nations Security Council and might seek "justice" in Syria on its own terms, the US representative to the UN, Nikki Haley, has said. The US took similar action in Libya in 2011. "With the unity of this council, or alone, unrestrained by Russia's obstructionism, we will continue to fight for justice and accountability in Syria," Haley said, blasting Russia's vetoing of the draft resolution on the extension of the Syrian chemical weapons probe on Friday. The draft, proposed by Japan, envisioned the "technical extension" of the probe for another 30 days. Explaining Russia's decision to block the resolution, Russian UN envoy Vasily Nebenzya said that there is no sense in prolonging the mission if some glaring flaws in its work are not amended. "There can be no other way after the JIM's [the UN-OPCW Joint Investigative Mechanism] leadership disgraced itself with its fictitious investigation into the sarin use incident in Khan Shaykhun and signed off on baseless accusations against Syria," he said.

Marine Expeditionary Unit Storms the CIA Headquarters in Langley "IndyWatch Feed World"

Reports: US Marine Expeditionary Unit (MEU) Lands at Langley! 2200 Marines!

Source: Hal Turner Radio Show




FILE PHOTO: Tilt-Rotor Aircraft

Reports are beginning to surface that a Marine Expeditionary Unit (MEU) landed at Langley on Saturday.

A Marine expeditionary unit (MEU, pronounced "Mew"), is the smallest Marine air-ground task force (MAGTF) in the United States Fleet Marine Force. Each MEU is an expeditionary quick reaction force, deployed and ready for immediate response to any crisis, whether it be natural disaster or combat missions.

A Marine expeditionary unit is normally composed of: a reinforced Marine infantry battalion (designated as a Battalion Landing Team) as the ground combat element, a composite medium tiltrotor squadron forms the aviation combat element, a combat logistics battalion provides the logistics combat element, and a company-size command element serves as the MEU headquarters group.

Troop strength is about 2,200 and usually commanded by a colonel, and is deployed from amphibious assault ships. Currently, a Marine expeditionary unit embarks Marines and equipment onto the amphibious warfare ships of an Expeditionary Strike Group (ESG) which also includes escort ships and submarines to protect them from air, surface, and submarine threats. For further protection and strong air support, such an ESG is often deployed along with one or more carrier battle groups.

WITNESSES


According to persons who reside near Langley, a large contingent of Marines arrived at CIA Headquarters in tilt-rotor aircraft and when the Marines deplaned, they were armed and moved quickly into CIA Headquarters!

Those witnesses also say that a significant number of tilt-rotor aircraft can be clearly seen on the grounds of CIA Headquarters, parked on the grass ar...

Maybe our Karmic purpose to pretend other divisive-gender role-reversal lifetimes is really a realer maybe-illusion tease, than, even we Love-lorn Lost-souls can imagine externalizing our ONENESS Spirit of Immortal Love interconnection? What do we get out of avoiding our own suffering separate lifetimes, if not ever having to feel, really feel the experiences that continual suffering gratification can bring from self-punishment allaying separation guilt, so we dont have to get acquainted with the harm, we pretend doesnt appear for us to have to, finally feel?

The more others control my motives, the less I can feel anything, so when I increase the harm of disregard I can do to others in continual victim/victimizer/caretaker resentful Karmic-dramas, the more I externalize my Spiritual Sovereign interconnection Pain-central, and get off the wheel of getting-off Karmic-illusion Undead-anomalies.

Merry Christmas: Outlawed!1!! "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

Oh, look christian ornaments! Via Amazon.

Jim Bakker. Again. In light of his latest round of bullshit, I missed this little whiny complaint. Along with screaming for people to buy his yuck inna bucket, hes also been busy hawking christmas crap, ornaments, cheap gifts for too much money, and so on.

Bakker said that he has been searching for Christmas ornaments that feature Jesus instead of Santa because Christmas is the birthday of Jesus Christ and complained that he wants to be able to buy a Christmas tree instead of a holiday tree.

They outlawed Merry Christmas a few years ago and you know it, he said. You couldnt even say Merry Christmas at Walmart and the Walmart greeters told me they werent allowed to say it. But we all started writing and what did we do? We changed it. We changed it. We all worked together. You dont have to lay down for it.

Uh huh. Its so easy to prove youre a liar, Jim. I did a quick search for Jesus ornaments. Theres a veritable fucktonne of them. Interestingly enough, they are listed as available at Wal-mart. So are Christmas trees, the list of which goes on and on. You need to stop lying, Jim, its not nice. I think its a sin, too.

Saying Merry Christmas has never been outlawed, and you damn well know it. Wal-mart is a private corporation, and their rules do not apply to the whole country, you dipshit. Theres nothing stopping you saying Merry Christmas or whatthefuckever you want. If your big problem is not every single person in Ustates saying merry mixmush, you are privileged beyond belief, and need to shut the fuck up, and help those who are not so unbelievably privileged.

You arent remotely concerned with christmas, Jim. All you care about is selling your cheap gimrack, so you can stuff more money in your pockets. Youre all about Giftmas. Your christmas tree has nothing to do with your idiotic religion. Thats pagan in origin. What would you being doing with one? And please, shut up about it already, its still six days until Brumalia, for pitys sake.

Saudi Arabia, Arab allies in Cairo talks on Iran, Hezbollah "IndyWatch Feed War"

By Patrick Markey

CAIRO (Reuters) Saudi Arabia and other Arab foreign ministers held an emergency meeting in Cairo on Sunday to discuss ways to confront Iran and its Lebanese Shiite ally Hezbollah, who the Arab allies say are interfering in their internal affairs.

Regional tensions have risen in recent weeks between Sunni monarchy Saudi Arabia and Shiite Islamist Iran over Lebanese Prime Minister Saad al-Hariris surprise resignation and after an escalation in Yemens conflict.

Hariri, a long-time Saudi ally, resigned on Nov. 4 in an announcement made from Riyadh. Hariri cited fear of assassination and accused Iran and Hezbollah of spreading strife in the Arab world.

Hezbollah, both a military force and a political movement, is part of a Lebanese government made up of rival factions, and an ally of Lebanese President Michel Aoun.

Aoun has accused Saudi Arabia of holding Hariri hostage. Senior Lebanese politicians close to Hariri also said he was coerced into resigning. Saudi Arabia and Hariri both deny those accusations.

What Iran is doing against some Arab countries calls for taking more than one measure to stop these violations, interferences and threats, which are carried out through many various means, Hossam Zaki, Arab League Assistant Secretary, told Asharq al Awsat newspaper in an interview.

Stopping them requires a joint Arab policy.

He said the meeting would send a strong message for Iran to step back from its current policies.

Egypts state-owned newspaper Al Ahram cited an Arab diplomatic source saying the meeting may refer the matter to the United Nations Security Council.

The emergency Arab foreign ministers meeting was convened at the request of Saudi Arabia with support from the UAE, Bahrain, and Kuwait to discuss means of confronting Iranian intervention, Egypts state news agency MENA said.

Saudi Arabias Foreign Minister Adel Jubeir told Reuters last week the kingdoms actions in the Middle East were only a response to what he called the aggression of Iran.

Unfortunately countries like the Saudi regime are pursuing divisions and creating differences and because of this they dont see any results other than divisions, Ira...

Russia Goes Caribbean "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

In the fifty-sixth edition of the Russian Newspapers Monitor, Professor Filip Kovacevic discusses the articles from four Russian newspapers: Izvestia, Kommersant, Vedomosti, and Ekspress Gazeta. He discusses the increased political and economic cooperation between Russia and the governments of the Caribbean states as a Russian long-term response to the U.S. meddling in Eastern Europe. He also discusses the press conference that the Russian president Vladimir Putin gave at the recent APEC summit in Vietnam and his praise of the U.S. president Donald Trump. In addition, Professor Kovacevic addresses the rumors about the potential break-up of the Russian state-owned natural gas and oil giant, Gazprom. Lastly, he examines how the first Russian foreign minister after the collapse of the Soviet Union, Andrei Kozyrev, a well-known pro-Western liberal, is seen in Russia today, including by the president Putin.

(Video) George Soros Surrenders, Abandons his Bets "IndyWatch Feed World"



Published on Nov 17, 2017

The Event Is Coming Soon - GEORGE SOROS SURRENDERS DEFEATED

Star investor George Soros has abandoned his bets against the US stock market. The rally of the S&P 500 apparently brought him to his knees. HE EXPECTED US PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP TO FAIL The Wall Street was apparently too powerful for the star investor. Soros had been betting heavily on a crash of the leading US stock market index S&P 500 over the past few months, not least because he apparently expected US President Donald Trump to fail in his economic policy. However, the American leading index is still not making any efforts to crash. On the contrary.

Soros has now tacitly dissolved its bets against the market barometer, the German newspaper "Die Welt" reports, citing a mandatory announcement to the SEC. GEORGE SOROS SURRENDERS TO WALL STREET The 87-year-old investment guru has thus reduced the number of put options, with which he mainly speculated on falling prices of selected tech groups, from around 1.8 million at the end of the first half of the year to currently 200,000 securities. Since it simultaneously bets 200,000 shares on an increase in the S&P 500, it is now positioned neutrally.

Soros' anti-USA speculations have left only a small bet against the US' Russell 2000 index of small indices. He also rejected the put notes that Soros used to bet on a crash of the US technology index Nasdaq. REVELATION WAS MANDATORY Soros' capitulation has now been made public because hedge funds in the US regularly have to publish their positions. At the latest 45 days after the end of each quarter, the hidden investors must provide an insight into their books.

White supremacist convicted of murdering 3 best friends, shooting another in Washington state "IndyWatch Feed World"

A white supremacist, largely covered in Nazi tattoos, has been convicted of brutally killing his three best friends and shooting a fourth in the face in Woodland, Washington. On July 15 of last year, Brent Luyster, 37, fatally shot his best friend Zachary David Thompson, 36, his friend Joseph LaMar, 38, and LaMar's partner, Janell Renee Knight, 43, at LaMar's home southeast of Woodland. Thompson's partner, Breanne Leigh, 32, was shot in the face but survived. She later identified Luyster as the shooter, the Columbian reported. Prosecutors believe Luyster killed the three because he was unhappy about felony charges in a different case that could land him back in prison. "We can't know the defendant's thought process. But we do know that he was stressed, that he was unhappy, that he was concerned, and we know that he was drinking," Deputy Prosecutor Laurel Smith told the jury ahead of the verdict on Wednesday.

TRIPOLI (AFP)  Libya will investigate alleged slave trading in the country, the internationally recognised government announced Sunday, following the release of video footage appearing to show migrants being auctioned off.Chaos-ridden Libya has long been a major transit hub for migrants trying to reach Europe, and many of them have fallen prey to serious abuse in the North African country at the hands of traffickers and others.

US television network CNN aired the footage last week of an apparent live auction in Libya where black men are presented to North African buyers as potential farmhands and sold off for as little as $400.

Deputy Prime Minister Ahmed Metig said his UN-backed Government of National Accord would investigate the allegations, in a statement posted Sunday on the Facebook page of the GNAs press office.

Metig said he would instruct the formation of a commission to investigate these reports in order to apprehend and bring those responsible to justice, the statement added.

The foreign ministry in a statement added: If these allegations are confirmed, all implicated persons will be punished.

The CNN report apparently showing migrants being auctioned off in Libya was shared widely on social media, provoking outrage in Africa, Europe and the rest of the world.

The grainy footage shot on a mobile telephone shows a man CNN said was Nigerian and in his 20s being offered up for sale as part of a group of big strong boys for farm work.

In the CNN report, a person identified as an auctioneer can be heard saying 800 900 1,000 1,100 before two men are sold for 1,200 Libyan dinars ($875).

Around 1,000 people took to the streets of Paris on Saturday to protest against slavery in Libya, according to French police. The gathering led to clashes between demonstrators and security forces.

Guinean President Alpha Conde, who is also chairman of the African Union, on Friday called for an inquiry and prosecutions relating to what he termed a despicable trade from another era.

Senegals government expressed outrage at the sale of Sub-Saharan African migrants on Libyan soil that constituted a blight on the conscience of humani...

15 prisoners have convictions reversed in Chicago over crooked cops "IndyWatch Feed World"

Fifteen men who were framed by a corrupt team of cops in Chicago have had their convictions thrown out en masse, leading to calls for hundreds of other cases linked to the team led by disgraced former officer Ronald Watts to be investigated. The 15 had their convictions quashed Thursday, and hours later, seven cops allegedly part of Watts' team that "terrorized the Ida B. Wells housing projects in Chicago for over a decade" were removed from street duties while their conduct is under investigation, the Chicago Tribune reports. Following the mass exonerations, believed to be the first of its kind in the history of the Windy City, Joshua Tepfer, lead attorney for the 15 vowed to review as many as 500 other convictions linked to the crooked squad. "It needs to be investigated and vetted about how many of those are appropriate to overturn," Tepler said. "We are very much in the process of doing that."

US military personnel deploying to Afghanistan were taught that child sexual abuse is a "culturally accepted practice" in the country, a new Pentagon report has revealed. Soldiers who reported the issue were told nothing could be done about it. "In some cases, the interviewees explained that they, or someone whom they knew, were told that nothing could be done about child sexual abuse because of Afghanistan's status as a sovereign nation, that it was not a priority for the command," the report says. "There's nothing we can do about it," one soldier interviewed for the report said his superior officers told him when he complained. Other comments included "it was out of our control," and "this is Afghanistan."

Opposition to Judge Moore Crumbles, 1891b "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

- Kangen Water, ionized, alkaline water, website: https://www.TopShelfWater.com Good morning, Im still reporting on: Opposition to Judge Moore Crumbles, 1891b Synopsis: White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders yesterday announced that President Trump will not ask Judge Roy Moore to withdraw from the Dec. 12th special election to replace Jeff Sessions as one of Alabamas two Senators. That is a decision the people of Alabama need to make, not the president. President Trump endorsed Moore after Moore trounced State Senator Luther Strange in the GOP primary. As the credibility of the stories of the accusers of Judge Moore one-by-one dissolve away like the wicked witch in the Wizard of Oz, the Alabama Republican partys executive committee met yesterday to discuss what their position would be going forward. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell had pressured the state party to do something to drive Moore from the race. This mornings The Hill reported that an unnamed source close to McConnell painted a picture of gloom and doom if Moore is allowed to remain. The Alabama Republican Party has to come to grips with the fact that theyre going to lose that seat. Why? A new poll commissioned by the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) was taken on Sunday a day before support for Moores accusers began to crumble. It claims Moore is trailing the far-left Democrat candidate by 12 points. Nevermind that the sample size of the NRSC poll may have been restricted to Democrats and blood relatives of Mitch McConnell and John McCain. No, fake polls have not gone away and they are still daily reported as fact by every single unit of the mainstream media. We have done many reports on fake polls and how they are done. Please see reports #986, 1096, 1197, 1304, but especially my last report before the 2016 election, #1314. So does anyone with a lick of common sense actually believe that a far leftist sacrifice candidate will take out the most popular judge in Alabama history? No way. The Alabama Republican party in essence told Senator McConnell and the rest of the Washington swamp-dwelling RINO herd to forget it. They decided to do nothing. The election will go on as scheduled. Their decision left Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell with no way to disqualify Moore from the race. Support Our Sponsors: - Virtual Shield VPN - the easiest way to create a home VPN.

Hezbollah forces on high alert in response to Israeli, Saudi threats "IndyWatch Feed World"

Hezbollah has raised its military readiness on the whole Lebanese territory in the last few days and put its forces on high alert in the light of the threats it has received from a number of countries, and especially from Israel and Saudi Arabia. Hezbollah forces have been mobilised in the event of any hostile activity on the borders or in the country, notwithstanding the ongoing conviction of its leadership that Israel will not wage war in the near or distant future. According to well informed sources, Hezbollah fears the possible assassination of a well-known Lebanese figure, Sunni or Christian, similar to the assassination of former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafik Hariri in 2005. The aim would be to re-mix the cards on the Lebanese scene, accuse Hezbollah and to embarrass President Michel Aoun. Aoun has raised the challenge against Riyadh during the recent events related to the televised resignation of Prime Minister Saad Hariri, and he has accused Saudi Arabia of holding Hariri as a hostage (for more than two weeks), defining the Prime Minister's submission to this act as "unconstitutional and illegitimate."

Is Satire Fakenews? How Fact-Checkers Peddle Snake-Oil "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

When professional fact checkers are flagging up satirical publishers for fake content, perhaps its time to worry

Cross-posted from Moon of Alabama

Since the issues of alleged fake news and Russian influence have cropped up, several media institutions highlight their public fact-checkers. Social media companies hire them to filter fake news from their content.

Traditional fact-checkers within a newsroom considered the veracity of the pieces their own reporters wrote up. They corrected factual mistakes before those were printed or aired. The new crop of fact-checker is testing the veracity of claims made by other media outlets and public entities.

The Tampa Bay TimesPolitiFact is one of the oldest and biggest of these organizations. It was founded in 2007 and has offices in several states. Like all such entities it has a certain political flavor. Thus the supposedly neutral fact-checking site PolitiFact gets fact checked by a site named PolitiFact Bias.

Last week Amy Sherman wrote an important piece for PolitiFactFacebook users had pointed her to this month old report about a military court case:

FORT BRAGG, N.C. Bowe Bergdahl, the Army sergeant facing charges of desertion, walked out of a military courtroom during a pre-trial hearing Monday and has not been seen since approximately 10:35 AM, prompting a statewide manhunt for the missing soldier.Sources inside the courtroom say that Bergdahl took only a half-full Camelbak and a long hunting knife with him as he calmly made his way to the exit during his own lawyers remarks to the judge regarding a possible plea deal.

Pentagon leadership is offering an unusual reward for information on Bergdahls whereabouts: $25,000 or seven Guantanamo detainees, depending on the credibility of the information.

The fact-checker applied the best of her abilities to debunk the assertions of the above piece:

Bowe Bergdahl wanders off during court-martial, said the October headline in Duffel Blog.

Campaign workers on the Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders Democratic 2016 presidential campaigns alleged in a report published Friday that they were harassed while campaigning for their respective candidates and that the campaigns failed to address the claims properly - the latest sexual misconduct revelations to rock the Democratic Party. Lilian Adams, a Clinton campaign worker, and Zoey Jordan Salsbury, who worked for the Sanders primary campaign, both told HuffPost that they were sexually harassed by fellow campaign workers and that the campaigns were "ill-equipped" to cope. Adams, who relocated to Colorado to work for the campaign as a paid organizer, said she was subject to homophobic remarks (Adams is bisexual) which went on to comments about her body and attempts to force her into one-on-one situations and get her to drink alcohol. Adams, then 19, said her harasser also encouraged her not to wear bras.

Call-Out in Response to Imminent KXL Decision "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

anonymous submission / Earth First! Newswire

Photo by 570ajk, https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Ogallala_Aquifer_-_Keystone_XL.png

On Monday, November 20th, the Public Service Commission, an elected board representing the so-called state of Nebraska, will most likely vote in favor of approving Transcanadas route for the Keystone XL pipeline through the ancestral home of the Pawnee, Otoe, Ponca, Sioux and Omaha peoples. This vote comes on the heels of large public upheaval against this specific pipeline and a 200,000 gallon oil spill from the original Keystone pipeline this week. This is the last political hurdle the pipeline needs to clear before the state can then begin eminent domain proceedings to seize the few tract of lands that Transcanada currently doesnt have access too.

For years, the climate movement has concentrated its efforts on non-violent and democratic efforts to stop KXL. We, on the other hand, have never held hope for these efforts, for history has proven that democratic efforts are bent to the will of politicians, professional organizers and industry. We do not adhere to the democratic path, the dominant ideology, that enough signatures, enough non-profit dollars will be able to halt this black snake. It is naive to think that reasonable actions will halt this project, therefore, for us, to be of use means to resist.

We would like to inspire conversations around tactical responses to KXL and other pipelines because we do not want to march and go home. We want to see this pipeline ended and create a new opening, a tear in the fabric, to find even deeper affinity and explore what is possible. We are here to confront...

Longtime Clinton Aide Becomes Unglued With Homophobic Attack Against POTUS Trump "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Philippe Reines, a longtime aide to Hillary Clinton, became unglued while engaging with a pro-Trump Twitter account early Sunday morning, firing off a homophobic slur against President Trump. So much for the Democrats being the party of tolerance.  

It all started after Reines tweeted a story about Sen. Jeff Flake warning that Republicans are toast, if it becomes the party of President Trump and Judge Roy Moore.

A Twitter user, who Reines may have believed was just a bot, responded to the tweet with this:

Sorry Reines its the beginning of the end for the Clintons and their surrogates. Both Sen Gillibrand and Donna Brazile ran them over and backed up over than again. Even the Swap Democrats want all of u to go away.

It Is Now Easier to Kill HUNDREDS of MILLIONS Than to Control Them

There is a clear organization structure that is emerging in a very public manner that every American needs to be concerned about. This organization is multidimensional but there is a key level of command and control that is identifiable.

The Real Reason for Trumps Asian Trip

President Trump just completed a 12 day, multiple nation tour allegedly to drum up support for engaging North Korea in a nuclear war. It is not that this particular conflict will not end up involving a nuclear exchange, however, there are more pressing reasons on why Trump found it necessary to be out of the country.

The United States, and in particular, the office of the President is the target of a definitive coup attempt by the Deep State.

Trump was out of the country, so he could be isolated under military protection during a coup which was decidedly going to turn violent. It is no secret that Trump has become, to some degree, the lap dog of the military. Why? Because hes buying protection from being either assassinated or overthrown. For every day that Trump stays in office, he is continuing to trigger the Great Awakening all across America. Three years ago, there were tens of millions of Americans who had never heard of the New World Order, who now are aware of the Bilderberg, the Trilateral Commission, the Council of Foreign Relations and despotic George Soros. Now we can add Moveon.org, Black Lives Matter, Antifa to the new vocabulary of the American lexicon. Despite what the fake polls say, the same fake polls that had Hillary winning the election by 12%, Donald Trumps base of support continues to grow.

Ex-Google Executive Is Starting His Own Artificial Intelligence Church "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

Highly influential former Google engineer is developing an AI god

Anthony Levandowski, the former Google and Uber executive has filed paperwork with the IRS to officially register a religion centered around super-smart artificial intelligence (AI).

According to IRS documents, the new church of AI will aim to develop and promote the realization of a Godhead based on artificial intelligence and through understanding and worship of the Godhead [to] contribute to the betterment of society. Levandowski would be the leader in this case dean of the religion.

The robot god will head a non-profit religious organization called Way Of The Future (WOTF). According to the website (wayofthefuture.church), the movement is about creating a peaceful and respectful transition of who is in charge of the planet from people to people + machines.'

The basis of this new religion is that Levandowskis believes that AI will one day grow to such efficiency that it surpass and overpower humans.

Given that technology will relatively soon be able to surpass human abilities, we want to help educate people about this exciting future and prepare a smooth transition, the site explains. In recent years, we have expanded our concept of rights to both sexes, minority groups and even animals, lets make sure we find a way for machines to get rights too.

Lets stop pretending we can hold back the development of intelligence when there are clear massive short term economic benefits to those who develop it and instead understand the future and have it treat us like a beloved elder who created it, the site argues.

In a rare interview with WIRED, Levandowski shed more light on his new church WOTF. The gospel of the religion would be called The Manual, and will have rituals and even a physical place of worship.

According to WIRED, the religions activities will concentrate on the realization, acceptance, and worship of a Godhead based on Artificial Intelligence (AI) developed through computer hardware and software.

The church will perform outreach to AI industry leaders and professionals to network with those who are interested in the worship of a Godhead based on AI.

What is going to be created will effectively be a god, he said. Its not a god in the sense that it makes lightning or causes hurricanes. But if there is something a billion times smarter than the smartest human, what else are you going to call it?

He added, I would love for the machine to see us as its beloved...

At the festival of summits to which the Philippines dutifully played host last week, three basic standpoints by which humanity describes and criticizes the state of affairs in the world vied for space.

Image result for Trump asia trip, photos

These competing viewpoints were not visible in equal measure at these summits. But, the resonance of particular issues, alongside the muted presence of others, gives us a good picture of how todays leaders are reacting to the complex problems brought about by globalization. These problems include the massive flows of migrants and refugees, terrorism, bigotry, uneven development and sharp inequalities within and across countries, mass poverty, ecological disasters, and war. They are problems that need the kind of global perspective for which multilateral talks might have been suited.

But, the hands-down winner in these summits has been the nation-state perspective and the vocabulary of national sovereignty, noninterference, and peaceful coexistence, in which it is officially articulated. The other name for it is the Chinese template. Rather than global agreements transcending nation-state divides, what we find instead are the bilateral deals by which every country tries to secure from another what it needs for itself.

Real-Life Electronic Neurons "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

All the kids down at Stanford are talking about neural nets. Whether this is due to the actual utility of neural nets or because all those kids were born after AIs last death in the mid-80s is anyones guess, but there is one significant drawback to this tiny subset of machine intelligence: its a complete abstraction. Nothing called a neural net is actually like a nervous system, there are no dendrites or axions and you cant learn how to do logic by connecting neurons together.

NeruroBytes is not a strange platform for neural nets. Its physical neurons, rendered in PCBs and Molex connectors. Now, finally, its a Kickstarter project, and one of the more exciting educational electronic projects weve ever seen.

Regular Hackaday readers should be very familiar with NeuroBytes. It began as a project for the Hackaday Prize all the way back in 2015. There, it was recognized as a finalist for the Best Product, Since then, the team behind NeuroBytes have received an NHS grant, theyre certified Open Source Hardware through OSHWA, and there are now enough NeuroBytes to recreate the connectome of a flatworm. Its doubtful the team actually has enough patience to recreate the brain of even the simplest organism, but is already an impressive feat.

The highlights of the NeuroBytes Kickstarter include seven different types of neurons for different sensory systems, kits to test the patellar reflex, and what is probably most interesting to the Hackaday crowd, a Bra...

The Ahrar al-Sham Movement didnt release any news regarding its attack on the Armored Vehicle Base in the last 24 hours. Syrian warplanes conducted very few airstrikes around the base on Sunday. Due to this its safe to assume that the reports about the SAA advance inside the base are accurate.

Trump to Be Hit With a Legal Tidal Wave "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Former Bush speechwriter Michael Gerson makes some good points.

I spent part of my convalescence from a recent illness reading some of the comprehensive timelines of the Russia investigation In all of this, there is a spectacular accumulation of lies. Lies on disclosure forms. Lies at confirmation hearings. Lies on Twitter. Lies in the White House briefing room. Lies to the FBI. Self-protective lies by the attorney general. Blocking and tackling lies by Vice President Pence. This is, with a few exceptions, a group of people for whom truth, political honor, ethics and integrity mean nothing.

What are the implications? President Trump and others in his administration are about to be hit by a legal tidal wave. We look at the Russia scandal and see lies. A skilled prosecutor sees leverage. People caught in criminal violations make more cooperative witnesses. Robert S. Mueller III and his A-team of investigators have plenty of stupidity and venality to work with. They are investigating an administration riven by internal hatreds also the prosecutors friend. And Trump has already alienated many potential allies in a public contest between himself and Mueller. A number of elected Republicans, particularly in the Senate, would watch this showdown with popcorn.

If you havent already, you should set aside some time to read about the blockbuster from NBC News and Reuters on the astounding criminality surrounding the Trump Ocean Club International Hotel and Tower project in Panama City. The people involved in selling those units for Trump have been accused and in several cases convicted of everything from pimping to working in the human slave trade to kidnapping to laundering money for South American drug kingpins. This, all in a project that Trump set aside to be Ivankas baby- her introduction to the real estate game. Many of these people were Russians and the same is true of their customers, who in most cases never occupied the properties they bought with their dirty money.

We have many other people in different aspects of what we do, but thats a representative group.

Of the five, only Keith Kellogg landed a job with the administration. He briefly served as interim National Security Adviser after Michael Flynn resigned, and now he serves as the Executive Secretary and Chief of Staff of the National Security Council.

We know why Carter Page didnt make the cut. His travels to Moscow and meetings with Kremlin-connected characters brought immediate suspicion and a FISA warrant to monitor his future movements. He resigned from the campaign in September. Joe Schimtz was briefly considered for Secretary of the Navy, as least according to the less than reliable Daily Caller. That obviously did not work out. Im not sure why Walid Phares didnt earn some kind of role, but its the case of George Papadopoulos that puzzled me the most.

US Senators endorse renewing NSA's most controversial spying powers "IndyWatch Feed World"

Senators are pushing to reauthorize some of the US Intelligence agencies' most sweeping and controversial spying abilities exposed by whistleblower Edward Snowden with some token 'improvements' as privacy advocates are already crying foul. Senator Mike Lee (R-Utah) and Senator Patrick Leahy (D-Vermont) introduced the Liberty Act bill which will reauthorize the controversial Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act. This gives US intelligence agencies permission to spy on and store internet metadata and communications of foreign people living outside the US, along with communications of US citizens which get "swept up" in the data collection. This data can then be searched at a later date without a warrant. The authorization for the George W Bush-era program is set to expire on December 31 if Congress doesn't renew it. The Liberty Act would extend Section 702 for six years, with a number of small improvements. The bill will "enhance accountability, and increase protections for queries of Section 702 metadata, among other important reforms," the senators said.

Heres The Most Insane Media Reactions To The Allegations Against Sen. Al Franken "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

After a news anchor accused Sen. Al Franken (D-Minnesota) of sexually assaulting her in 2006, some of those in the press have reacted rather bizarrely. Heres a list of the most insane responses yet.

Mock Groping

MSNBCs coverage of the photo of Franken leaning in to grab Leeann Tweedens breasts without her consent as she sleeps was, shall we say, interesting. Kasie Hunt described the incident as Franken mock groping Tweeden. Watch.

The CBO Determines Which Bills Get Passed Based on Biased and Inaccurate Projections Its Time to Abolish the CBO! "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Guest post by Joe Hoft

Congress allows the CBO, a non elected government body, to determine what bills become law based on the CBOs politically biased and inaccurate projections Its time to Abolish the CBO!

The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) states that 

Since 1975, CBO has produced independent analyses of budgetary and economic issues to support the Congressional budget process. Each year, the agencys economists and budget analysts produce dozens of reports and hundreds of cost estimates for proposed legislation.

CBO is strictly nonpartisan; conducts objective, impartial analysis; and hires its employees solely on the basis of professional competence without regard to political affiliation. CBO does not make policy recommendations, and each report and cost estimate summarizes the methodology underlying the analysis. Learn more about CBOs commitment to objectivity and transparency.

CBOs work follows processes specified in the Congressional Budget and Impoundment Control Act of 1974 (which established the agency) or developed by the agency in concert with the House and Senate Budget Committees and the Congressional leadership.

Based on bills that CBO has rated over the past decade (e.g. Obamacare), the CBO is clearly not independent, objective or transparent.

Forbes reported that the CBO blew it with Obamacare in a number of ways.  They projected it would be solvent over 10 years:

CBO projected that the exchanges would be stable by now with more than twice as many enrollees as they currently have, rather than suffering from severe adverse selection in most states as they now are. Second, CBO projected that the ACA Medicaid expansion would be much smaller and less expensive than it has turned out to be.

Now this

The CBO determined that the GOP tax plan will add $1.7 trillion in deficit increases over the next 10 years.  This information is being used by Democrats as a political weapon to vote against the tax bill that will be the biggest boom to Ame...

In Ankara, all LGBT events have been banned indefinitely. The governor of the city says that many residents of the Turkish capital are disturbed by expressions of gays, lesbians, bisexuals and transgender people.

How many residents exactly, Mr Governor? I suspect mainly just one resident: right-wing President Erdogan, who had his expensive presidential palace built in Ankara illegally.

The ban also includes theater performances, film screenings, exhibitions and panel discussions. On Wednesday, a gay film festival in Ankara had already been banned

Israel uses families as pawns to pressure Palestinians into exile through foreign spouse visas "IndyWatch Feed World"

Like many young married couples across the world, Claire and her husband have a five-year-plan. But instead of their main concern being how to deal with the imminent arrival of their first child, Claire's family is facing the very real possibility of expulsion and exile. Like scores of other foreigners married to Palestinians in the occupied territory, Claire - whose name has been changed to protect her identity, like all other women interviewed for this article - has struggled to navigate the labyrinthine Israeli bureaucratic process to obtain the necessary paperwork to reside in the West Bank with her husband. While foreign spouses, both Arab and non-Arab, have long described the process as opaque, the situation has worsened for Western spouses since 2016 with more and more women and men being denied visas, leading many to fear for the fate of their families amid ever-increasing Israeli policies targeting both Palestinians and foreigners standing in solidarity with the Palestinian cause.

Oswald killer Jack Ruby told FBI informant to 'watch the fireworks' the day JFK was shot "IndyWatch Feed World"

Freshly released FBI records show that Jack Ruby, the man who killed Lee Harvey Oswald, asked an FBI informant if he wanted to "watch the fireworks" just hours before President John F. Kennedy's assassination in 1963. The document, which was among 10,744 files released by the National Archive on Friday, outlines what an FBI informant told officials about Ruby, hinting that the nightclub owner may have known that Kennedy was going to be targeted. In March 1977, nearly 14 years after JFK's assassination, the chief of the intelligence division of the Internal Revenue Service, Robert J. Potrykus, hand delivered a letter to the agent Ted L. Gunderson of the FBI's Dallas office which outlined that Ruby telephoned the informant on the morning of the fatal shooting of the president and asked him if he wanted to go to watch the presidential parade. "The informant stated that on the morning of the assassination, Ruby contacted him and asked if he would 'like to watch the fireworks,'" the letter reads. "He was with Jack Ruby and standing at the corner of the Postal Annex Building facing the Texas School Book Depository Building at the time of the shooting. Immediately after the shooting, Ruby left and headed toward the area of the Dallas Morning News Building."

Turkey bans all LGBTI events across Ankara province Could incite hatred "IndyWatch Feed War"

AFP

AFP/File | Homosexuality has been legal since the creation of the modern Turkish republic in 1923 under founding leader Mustafa Kemal Ataturk

ISTANBUL (AFP)  Turkish authorities on Sunday announced a ban on all LGBTI cultural events in Ankara province until further notice to maintain public order.The move follows a ban on a festival of German-language gay films in the capital on Thursday, imposed on the grounds it could incite hatred and be at risk from terror attacks.

Since (Saturday) 18 November and until further notice, all film and theatre events, screenings, panels, colloquium, exhibitions, etc have been banned, the Ankara adminstration said on its website.

It argues that LGBTI events are likely to provoke reactions within certain segments of society and has issued the ban to maintain public order.

But organisers of Thursdays film festival wanted authorities to instead offer greater protection, denouncing the move as a violation of their constitutional rights.

The announcement will fuel concern amongst LGBTI activists in Turkey that their right to freedom of expression is being curtailed under the Islamic-rooted government of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

Homosexuality has been legal since the creation of the modern Turkish republic in 1923, and was also legalised in the Ottoman Empire from the mid-nineteenth century.

However, LGBTI individuals in the country frequently complain of mistreatment including harassment, abuse and rape as well as animosity.

The annual gay pride rally in Istanbul once a hugely popular event has been blocked by authorities for three years in a row also on security grounds.

Activists accuse the government of banning such events in a bid to impose a conservative morality on the hugely diverse country. But authorities insist they are acting to protect citizens safety.

Earlier this month, Erdogan was outraged at the existence of a quota for gays on a neighbourhood committee, saying it was at odds with the nations values.

An awkward alliance with the pro-business Free Democrats and the Greens would allow Chancellor Angela Merkel to govern for a fourth term after her conservatives lost votes in Septembers election to the far right.

However the three-way combination is untested at national level. With negotiations running deep into overtime, leaders are urging each other to make painful compromises in order to bind parties that are ideologically far apart into a stable government for Europes largest economy.

A self-imposed deadline of Thursday for wrapping up exploratory talks passed without agreement, but negotiators said the Greens welcomed a Sunday offer to boost wind generation and shutter 7 gigawatts of dirty coal generation capacity.

(Parties) cannot go in with maximal demands, said Greens co-leader Cem Ozdemir. They have to be prepared, out of responsibility, or call it patriotism, to move and we have done that in every area, right up to the pain threshold.

While snags remain on taxes and public finances, the trickiest sticking point concerns immigration, where Merkels arch-conservative allies in Bavarias Christian Social Union (CSU) insist on capping new arrivals at 200,000 a year.

A Beginners Guide to the Unrecognized Villages of Israel "IndyWatch Feed World"

(FPIF)  Its no secret that there is an occupation happening in and around Israel.

Most people agree that the West Bank and Gaza Strip have been occupied since 1967. Much less thought and literature is dedicated to the treatment of Palestinians living inside modern-day Israel proper. I decided to head over there and see for myself.

It is commonly believed that Palestinian citizens of Israel officially known as Arab Israelis enjoy full equality in the Jewish State. There are Arab members of parliament, the Arab population in Israel has been growing steadily for decades, and the Arab cultural scene is thriving in places like Haifa. While all of these statements are true, Palestinians insist that occupation still exists inside the state of Israel, and nowhere is that fact more apparent than in the unrecognized Bedouin villages of the Negev desert.

Before the creation of modern Israel, the Negev desert, which constitutes the southern half of the country, was almost entirely populated by Arab Bedouins. Nearly 90 percent fled during the Nakba of 1948. 11,000 Bedouins remained, a population which has now grown to over 200,000.

Of the Bedouins still living in the Negev, half live in government-designated towns and cities, much like Native reservations in the United States, and the other half live in unrecognized villages. The Bedouin are Israeli citizens, but because their villages arent formally recognized by the state, they have no access to state services including water, electricity, telephones, sewage systems, and roads.

Today, the unrecognized villages of the Negev desert have the highest unemployment and poverty rates in Israel. I visited three villages to understand the effect of occupation.Beer Sheva is the largest city in the Negev desert. It is home to 205,000 people, about 10 percent of whom are Palestinian citizens of Israel.

Originally founded in 4,000 BCE, Beer Sheva has been at times a Bedouin encampment, part of the Ottoman Empire, and now, the fourth most populous metropolitan center in Israel. It is a thriving college town, a growing tech hub, and interestingly, the chess capital of the world...

Mugabe, the only leader Zimbabwe has known since independence from Britain in 1980, was replaced by Emmerson Mnangagwa, the deputy he sacked this month, a senior party official told a news conference.

In scenes unthinkable just a week ago, the announcement was met by cheers from the 200 ZANU-PF delegates packed into the partys Harare headquarters to seal the fate of Mugabe, whose support has crumbled in the four days since the army seized power.

Mugabes 52-year-old wife Grace, who had harbored ambitions of succeeding her husband, was also expelled from the party, along with at least three cabinet ministers who had formed the backbone of her G40 political faction.

Speaking before the meeting, war veterans leader Chris Mutsvangwa said Mugabe was running out of time to negotiate his departure and should leave the country while he could.

Hes trying to bargain for a dignified exit, he said.

Utopian fantasies vs. a better world

What happened to the Republic? Democracy happened

By Jon Rappoport

When you come to the subject of who should fix things, the government or private individuals, you could throw up your hands and confess that neither choice works, in which case youre left with a terminal disease, and a fine excuse for doing nothing; or you could refer back to the principles of the Republic, and understand why the Founders put chains on government, and you might a find a clue for navigating out of the maze. (The Underground, Jon Rappoport)

This piece is for anyone who can understand itbut its also for THE ENTREPRENEUR, who in his soul wants to do something large and bright and radical and successful, to turn the tide of human affairs in an enormously good direction and, yes, still make a substantial profit.

And no, the universe doesnt rule out those two motives existing side by side.

The United States was created as a Republic.

That meant severely limited central government.

Why?

Because the Founders knew the long experience of Europe: overarching tyrannies; bloated kings emboldened with the doctrine of divine right to rule; theocracies; gigantic theft of land; force, coercion; slavery.

The new 18th century American central government, through enumerated powers and checks and balances, had to be limited and even hamstrung.

On that basis, individual freedom would be maximized.

That was the whole point of a Republic.

The individual would be free to do whatever he wanted to, as long as he didnt interfere with the life and liberty of others.

INDIVIDUAL FREEDOMTHE HALLMARK OF A REPUBLIC.

However, in order for a Republic to have a chance of success, the population would have to remain small. A Republic is not for an enormous population. The people are too remote from the federal center of power.

And there needed to be a population of moral people, who understood basic rights and wrongs, beyond legislation and law.

As the American population swelled, there should have been many Republics founded on this continent. Unfortunately, that never happened.

Instead, men in and around central government conspired to multiply their own power through a variety of means, thus creating monopolies of great strength, in government and business and money.

And gradually, these men and their descendants came to see they could foist a grand illusion on the people: they could promote the idea that the peoples wishes were paramount and should be served at all times.

Thus arrived D...

Hillary Defends Al Franken He Doesnt Need To Resign, He Is My Friend (AUDIO) "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Guest post by Michael LaChance at American Lookout:

Hillary Clinton came to Al Frankens defense during a radio interview yesterday. She said that her friend Franken is doing all the right things in the wake of his scandal and that he doesnt need to resign.

From the New York Daily News:

When it comes to allegations of sexual misconduct, Hillary Clinton sees a clear difference between Democrats and Republicans.

The former secretary of state chatted with WABC radio host Rita Cosby in a sweeping Friday afternoon interview centered on sexual impropriety in politics, fielding questions about GOP Senate nominee Roy Moore, President Trump, her husband and Democratic Sen. Al Franken.

Hes a good friend of mine and I deeply regret what he did. Theres no excuse for his behavior but he has called for an investigation and apologized to the woman involved, Clinton said. Look at the contrast between Al Franken, accepting responsibility, apologizing, and Roy Moore and Donald Trump who have done neither.

She is such a hypocrite. If Franken was a Republican, she would be the loudest voice in the nation calling for his resignation.

Maybe she could spend a little more time trying to accept the results of the election and less time opining on current events.

Writing last week for Time, Nash Jenkins reported how 4 Republican senators are talking privately about how they can't support the bill because it balloons the national debt. They could shut the whole thing down.
Arizona Sen. Jeff Flake and Oklahoma Sen.

An official statement from the US Navy's 7th Fleet said the tugboat lost its propulsion and drifted into the USS Benfold on Saturday, sustaining minor damage. "No one was injured on either vessel and Benfold sustained minimal damage, including scrapes on its side, pending a full damage assessment," the statement read. The USS Benfold remains at sea while the Japanese boat was towed to a port in Yokosuka. The Navy said that the incident would be investigated.

Pentagon lies about killing Iraqi civilians "IndyWatch Feed World"

This video from the USA says about itself:

Report: US Kills 31x More Iraqi Civilians Than Pentagon Claims

18 November 2017

Whenever the Pentagon gives its official estimate of civilians theyve killed, go ahead and multiply that by about THIRTY-ONE. John Iadarola, Ben Mankiewicz, and Michael Shure, hosts of The Young Turks, discuss.

The Pentagon claims that its air war against ISIS is one of the most accurate in history and that it is so careful in who it targets that the 14,000 US airstrikes in Iraq have killed just 89 civilians.

It turns out that the militarys assertion is a stunning underestimation of the true human cost of Washingtons three-year-old war against ISIS. An 18-month-long investigation by the New York Times has found that the US-led military coalition is killing civilians in Iraq at a rate 31 times higher than its admitting.

It is at such a distance from official claims that, in terms of civilian deaths, this may be the least transparent war in recent American history, Azmat Khan and Anand Gopal report.

Initial media reports about Mugabe's ouster were confusing: While the country's ruling party had voted to expel him, several sources quoted by western media outlets said the vote was only the trigger to start the process of removing Mugabe, and that he is still technically president of Zimbabwe. Fortunately, the ruling Zanu-PF party have issued a quick clarification: Mugabe - who has obstinately refused to officially abdicate in accordance with the military's demands - has until noon tomorrow to resign. If he doesn't, he will be impeached.

No podemos vivir en paz y libres mientras los autores materiales e intelectuales sigan libres, dicen Las Abejas de Acteal a relatora de la ONU "IndyWatch Feed Noramerica"

Respetable seora Victoria,

Mi nombre es Guadalupe Vsquez Luna, tengo de 30 aos de edad y el 22 de diciembre de 1997, perd a 9 integrantes mi familia, incluido mi padre y mi madre, aquel da en que los paramilitares pristas atacaron mi comunidad.

Este 22 de diciembre cumplen 20 aos de la Masacre de Acteal, en donde paramilitares pristas y cardenistas entrenados y armados y entrenados por el Ejrcito Mexicano en el marco de la estrategia contrainsurgente diseada dentro del Plan de Campaa Chiapas 94, ese da masacraron a 45 personas, entre ellas 4 que an no nacan. La mayora eran nias, nios y mujeres.

La Masacre de Acteal es un mensaje del Estado mexicano hacia las comunidades indgenas y a los movimientos sociales que luchan contra un sistema de gobierno entreguista, represor, que desprecia y que no respeta a los pueblos indgenas como sujetos de su propia historia y de derecho en un pas en donde la democracia, la libertad y la soberana son meros discursos.

Esta Masacre no cabe duda de que es un crimen de Estado, aunque el mismo gobierno mexicano encabezado en ese entonces por Ernesto Zedilo Ponde de Len, dijo a travs del Libro Blanco elaborado por la Procuradura General de la Repblica (PGR) que Acteal fue causa de un conflicto intra o inter comunitario. Siendo que nuestro verdadero delito es luchar por la paz y la justicia.

Hay muchas pruebas de cmo el Estado mexicano no quiso evitar la Masacre, porque meses antes estuvimos denunciando pblicamente y presentamos denuncias formales ante la Sub Procuradura de Justicia Indgena con sede en San Cristbal de Las Casas, Chiapas, encabezado por el lic. David Gmez Hernndez sobre los hechos previos a la Masacre de Acteal.

As mismo, 15 das antes de la Masacre el periodista Ricardo Rocha realiz un reportaje sobre la situacin de los desplazados forzados y el conflicto en Chenalh cometida por los paramilitares, el cual lo transmiti en una televisora con audiencia a nivel nacional, pero, Ernesto Zedillo lo calific como un mero montaje.

Robert Mugabe Removed From Power in Zimbabwe by Military Coup "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

Zimbabwe awaits news on Mugabe's future

Zimbabweans are waiting to see what steps the military will take next after seizing control of the country. President Robert Mugabe is said to be under house arrest but the whereabouts of his wife Grace, who was bidding to succeed him as president, are unknown.

South African ministers have been in the capital Harare meeting the army and political parties. The Southern African Development Community (SADC) regional bloc will hold emergency talks on Thursday.

President Mugabe, 93, has been in control of Zimbabwe since it gained independence from Britain in 1980. But the power struggle over who might succeed him, between Mrs Mugabe and her rival former vice-president Emmerson Mnangagwa, has split the ruling Zanu-PF party in recent months.

Arrogance: Saudi Arabia fails to hurt Hezbollah with Hariri gambit, but pushes on "IndyWatch Feed World"

Riyadh's attempt to assert control in Lebanon and open up a new front against Hezbollah and Iran has brought little return, but substantial reputational damage. But does Saudi Arabia even care about playing geopolitical chess, or does it just want to fling pieces at its adversaries? The road trip-slash-conspiracy thriller that began with Saad Hariri's surprise resignation as Lebanese Prime Minister from Saudi Arabia on November 4 is by no means over: Perhaps Emmanuel Macron will help Hariri hold on to his position by mediating the crisis in Paris this weekend, or maybe the trip to France is merely the beginning of his exile. And even if Hariri does return to Beirut to the embrace of sympathetic locals, victimhood is not always the easiest route to retaining power.

Israel to shut migrant centre and deport Africans "IndyWatch Feed War"

AFP

AFP/File | A file picture shows African migrants gathering before their release from the Holot detention centre in Israels Negev desert, on August 25, 2015

JERUSALEM (AFP)  Israels cabinet voted on Sunday to close a migrant detention centre, as Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced an agreement to deport 40,000 Africans who entered the country illegally.Ministers unanimously approved plans to shutter the Holot centre in southern Israel and gave migrants a three-month deadline to leave the country or face deportation, said the interior and public security ministries.

The infiltrators will have the option to be imprisoned or leave the country, the public security ministry said in a statement.

Israeli official figures from June 30 show a total of 38,043 African migrants in the country.

They include 27,494 Eritreans and 7,869 Sudanese, and their presence in south Tel Aviv has raised discontent among Israelis there and elsewhere.

Speaking ahead of Sundays vote, Netanyahu noted that after building a fence on the Egyptian border and deporting some 20,000 African migrants through various deals, Israel has reached the third stage of its efforts accelerated removal.

This removal is taking place thanks to an international agreement I reached that enables us to remove the 40,000 infiltrators remaining, remove them without their consent, he told ministers.

This will enable us to close down Holot and allocate some of the large funds going there to inspectors and removing more people, said Netanyahu.

Holot, an open facility in the desert that can host 1,200 migrants who are allowed to leave to work during the day, would be closed three months from December 16, according to the decision.

A public security ministry spokesman said an extension to that deadline would be set if necessary.

Ahead of the vote, Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan said Holot had become a hotel for infiltrators at the tax-payers expense that does not encourage their exit and costs 240 million shekels ($68 million, 58 million euros) a year.

In a Twitter statement, Erdan however stressed the closure of Holot was conditioned on us seeing that the policy of removing infiltrators to a third country was indeed taking place.

Neither Erdan nor Netanyahu gave details about the deal and the third country.

Peacekeeping Is No Job For Ordinary Soldiers "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

By Rick Salutin in Rabble. Peacekeeping always seems like a good idea at the time, then it tends to go awry. It did right from the start when Canada's Lester B. Pearson proposed a UN force to resolve tensions in the Mideast in 1956, after Britain, France and Israel invaded Egypt. Pearson got the Stanley Cup -- I mean, the Nobel Peace Prize -- for it, and probably became prime minister as a result six years later. Even that didn't go smoothly. Pearson wanted Canadian troops as part of the force but the Egyptians gagged when they heard names like the Queen's Own Rifles and Princess Patricia Light Infantry, with a little Union Jack on the then-Canadian flag, the Royal ensign. They'd just been blasted by Royal British bombs.

Apocalyptic hailstorm destroys 50 houses and injures dozens in Zimbabwe on November 15, 2017. Sometimes mother nature is passive aggressive, throwing a horrifying curve ball out of the clear blue sky. Something that you could never see coming. Something that you probably didn't even know was possible. On Nov. 15th, more than 10 people were injured and rushed to Mpilo Central Hospital after their homes collapsed following an apocalyptic night hailstorm that left 50 families homeless in Emthunzini suburb on the outskirts of Bulawayo in Zimbabwe. The 1-hour-long hailstorm also destroyed properties in Pumula South and Nkulumane suburbs, with the roofs of some houses being blown away. A real disaster! The hailstorm started just after 9PM and lasted approximately one hour. First came the strong winds, then loud noises from the outside. Before residents started to understand what was going on, the doors and roofs were blown away and the walls started shaking and bricks started falling. 50 houses were completely annilihated, had crumbled down, leaving 50 families homeless. The apocalyptic situation was worsened by power outages.
