Old and busted: Leute laden ihre private keys bei Github hoch.

Update: Das ist besonders lustig, weil Github ihren Usern seit geraumer Zeit einen Service reindrckt, der bei Checkins guckt, ob irgendwas wie ein private key aussieht, und dann das Checkin abbricht. Ja, so hufig ist das anderen Leuten passiert, dass sie dafr einen Service gebaut haben, der das verhindern soll. Und trotzdem schaffen sie es, selber ihren private key hochzuladen.

Judy Woods 9-11 Thesis and How We Can Deal with Our Treason "IndyWatch Feed National"

Photo: front cover of the book Where Did the Towers Go?

by Mary W Maxwell, LLB

Judy Woods 20006 book Where Did the Towers Go? is a masterpiece. I am only up to page 78 so far. Dr Wood (PhD in mechanical engineering) easily disproves the claim that the collapse of WTC twin towers was caused by fire, as is ludicrously touted by the NIST (thats the National Institutes of Standards and Technology, within the US Commerce Department).

But she has also destroyed the theory of controlled demolition, the pancaking of the 110 floors of the tower. She presents instead an explanation based on directed energy, a la Nicola Teslas work which has been hidden from the public.

I find it annoying that Dr Wood gets hostile when people refer to her work as theory or opinion. She says she only collects empiric...

Who Has Right on Their Side? "IndyWatch Feed National"

In Henrik Ibsens An Enemy of the People, the character Dr. Stockmann says:

The majority never has right on its side. Never I say! That is one of those social lies against which an independent, intelligent man must wage war. Who is it that constitute the majority of the population in a country? Is it the clever folk or the stupid? I dont imagine you will dispute the fact that at present the stupid people are in an absolutely overwhelming majority all the world over. But, good Lord!you can never pretend that it is right that the stupid folk should govern the clever ones! [the crowd cries out] Oh yesyou can shout me down, I know! But you cannot answer me. The majority has might on its side-unfortunately; but right it has not. I am in the rightI and a few other scattered individuals. The minority is always in the right.

How do Americans define wealth? The answer may surprise you "IndyWatch Feed National"

In an exclusive Fast Company-Harris Poll, few people equated wealth with extravagance and excess. Most just want to be comfortable.

The value of a dollar continues to erode due to high inflation, and as a result, Americans budgets are getting even tighter. But even as the typical American household has seen its purchasing power and wealth erode, many people are still feeling at least somewhat wealthy, according to an exclusive Harris Poll conducted earlier this month for Fast Company.

Fish kills leave Kenyas Lake Victoria farmers at a loss, seeking answers "IndyWatch Feed National"

KISUMU, Kenya It is a little past 5 p.m. at the lakeside city of Kisumu, in the western part of Kenya. An hour later, the sun sets over the sprawling Lake Victoria as far as the eye can see. Wisps of gray clouds are infused with the suns amber rays, which reflect off the lake in a bedazzling shimmer. The scene is captivating, but a faint stench lingers in the air. That stench, to many cage fish farmers, is a painful reminder of the extensive losses they suffered in November 2022 due to fish kills. A report commissioned by Kenyas State Department for Fisheries, Aquaculture and the Blue Economy estimates that cage farmers in different sections of Lake Victoria, particularly Kisumu and Homa Bay towns, lost more than 900 million shillings ($7.2 million) to fish kills in 2022. While the scientists Mongabay speaks to attribute the fish kills to a combination of natural phenomena and climate change, the fish farmers are wary of those explanations, saying the deaths could be a result of pollution. Fish farmers in Lake Victoria mainly stock tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus), which, according to scientists, are preferred due to their fast growth, resistance to disease and ability to withstand low dissolved oxygen levels. Tilapia and Nile perch (Lates niloticus) are the two most abundant fish species in the lake, and tilapia is more profitable in the local market. Two of the fish farms, Kentila Farms and Lake Aqua Limited, suffered the greatest losses: 200.4 million shillingsThis article was originally published on Mongabay


JFK Assassination, Putin, The Anti-Christ and The End Times "IndyWatch Feed National"

[An email referencing the RFK video below]

RFK Jr. Explains Why JFKs Assassination Has Not Been Declassified

All correct. And as he indicates; and as I have written and spoken many times over the years; it is only a small piece of that complex matter.

Note CIA Angleton; head of Counter; is mentioned. He orchestrated The JFK Murder under the control of CIA Scherff.

All that followed would not have occurred had Scherff been immediately hung from a lamp post, as he himself intimated.

The very foolish notion of institutional protection protects nothing. It empowers more of the same, engenders an air of invisibility and accountability, and moves perpetrators to greater wrongs in a natural psychotic momentum.

At this moment: US Intel believes it can take out Trump; who they fear; any time they want. They forget that they have already tried this eight times and against Melania once. I have written about the latter.

I just love everything about it: Matt Corby launches new National Artists Mentorship Program "IndyWatch Feed Vic"

Matt Corby is arguably one of Australias most recognised artists. With hits like Brother, Revolution, and No Ordinary Life, his music has been the soundtrack to many of our lives. Now hes getting into the mentorship game, starting an amazing new program alongside Wild Turkey. 

After the last few years of virtually no touring, many artists have albums and releases to hit the road with, but opportunities are scarce with 4 in 5 (81%) aspiring musicians finding it difficult to book a live gig. This bespoke music mentorship program Music 101 is set to support up-and-coming artists in the live music realm, offering aspiring artists the opportunity to learn from some of Australias best.

Keep up with the latest music news, festivals, interviews and reviews here.

I just love everything about it, Matt notes. The engagement with younger artists and encouraging live music again is super positive. 

Theres been this huge bottleneck in the last six months of all these current artists that have made their records through COVID, and they are all trying to play shows. Its probably become quite difficult for up-and-coming artists to even have a shot at having live music experiences.

The human cost of the green revolution "IndyWatch Feed National"

My latest investigation in Declassified Australia is about one of Australias richest men, Andrew Forrest, and his attempt to develop green hydrogen in the Democratic Republic of Congo:

Australian mining billionaire Andrew Forrest wants to make himself a champion of green energy by building an US$80 billion mega-dam to develop green hydrogen in one of the worlds poorest and war-ravaged countries.

The Fortescue Future Industries plans, if they go ahead, are feared to have significant irreversible social and environmental impacts on indigenous people and communities.

Local land-owning communities in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), who would welcome development and cheaper power, have already come up against the projects secrecy. They say they are being sidelined and divided, and their voices and community needs prevented from being heard.

Fishing communities, that depend on the river planned to be dammed, are already suffering water level drops from increased drought. It seems fixing the worlds climate change problems with green hydrogen will not be victim-free. Green hydrogen has become a multi-billion dollar gamble by some of the worlds biggest investors and polluting miners.

Declassified Australia has been told by sources in the DRC that locals in the affected areas have been left in the dark about the company and governments intentions. Theyve been given no guarantees of support or relocation and they fear having their land taken away.

The parallels with Fortescues impact on indigenous land-owners in Western Australia are alarming. In 2017, the Yindjibarndi people of the Pilbara area, following a years-long fight against Forrests plans for massive new iron ore mines, won a court casethat finally granted them access to their cultural sites and a guaranteed community income.

But Fortescue baulked and tried to fight them in the courts. Negotiations between the two sides broke down in 2021 and today Yindjibarndi Aboriginal Corporation chief executive Michael Woodley is still demanding compensation for mining on their land.

Forrest is facing a growing chorus of...

Supanova is Whittleseas $8M, nine-storey high zero-gravity waterslide worth the roadtrip "IndyWatch Feed Vic"

If you love waterparks and a thrill, the Supanova is the new(ish) mind-blowing intergalactic waterslide at Funfields in Whittlesea worth the trip this year.

Werribee Open Range Zoo welcomes first Southern rhino calf born there in almost a decade "IndyWatch Feed Vic"

Werribee Open Range Zoo is celebrating the arrival of a Southern white rhino calf the first rhino calf of this threatened species to born at the zoo in almost a decade. 

The birth of the calf is a major milestone for the Zoo and the conservation of Southern white rhinos in the Australasian region. Currently, they are listed as Near Threatened on the IUCN Red List with their population in decline. There is an estimated 10,080 remaining in the wild with significant threats including poaching and the illegal trading of rhino horn.  

Stay up to date with whats happening in and around the region here.

First-time mother Kipenzi [pronounced: Kip-en-zee] gave birth just before 4am on Tuesday, March 21, to a female calf who weighs just over 60 kilograms. The birth follows a 16-month pregnancy during which Kipenzi and her calfs health has been carefully monitored by Zoo veterinarians and zookeepers. 

Following the birth, keepers observed an absence of healthy bonding, with the calf not thriving as expected during the important first hours of infancy. After consultation with the zoos veterinary team, the calf was brought to the zoos vet clinic for medical checks and supplementary feeding. 

Werribee Open Range Zoo Director Dr Mark Pilgrim said the calf is being provided with around-the-clock feeds of colostrum obtained from its mother. 

The calfs health has begun to improve, and it is now in the process of being reintroduced to mum, Dr Pilgrim said.  However, it will continue to remain under veterinary care during these critical early days. 

Keepers and vets are additionally monitoring the post-birth health of Kipenzi to ensure she is being provided with the  highest quality care. This includes daily check-ups and observations via remote installed cameras. 

The arrival of this precious calf is an important achievement in the fight to save the species from extinction, and we  are excited that visitors will be able to view the pair once we have navigated these typically high-risk early days following  the birth, Dr Pilgrim said. 

This is the first calf born to nine-year-old Kipenzi and 13-year-old male Kifaru [pronounced: Ki-far-oo] who were paired  in 2019 as part of the Australasian rhino regional breeding and conservation program. 

Updates on the calfs progress will be provided via Zoos Victorias social c......

Narendra Modis Cricket Coup "IndyWatch Feed National"

What a coup. Nakedly amoral but utterly self-serving in its saccharine minted glory. Indias showman Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who otherwise appears to have clerkish, desk-bound qualities, had what he wanted: an accommodating, possibly clueless guest in the form of the Australian Prime Minister Anthony Albanese; a common interest in Indias national sport cricket, and a show illuminating him as supreme Hindu leader presiding over a new age of politics. For Albanese, this was ill-fitting and disturbing but all in keeping with the occasion.

This month, Albanese, who has been held to the bosom of great powers of late, found himself at the mercy of cricket diplomacy at the Narendra Modi stadium in Ahmedabad. He had been placed upon an improvised golf car with Modi prior to the start of the fourth cricket test between Australia and India. But Albanese was not merely Modis guest; he was also appearing in a stadium named after the prime minister he was keeping company with. Modesty had been exorcised; pomp and narcissism had taken its place.

The cricketers of the national sides were not spared florid manipulation and flowery exploitation. In India, cricket makes the god fearing, beer swilling followers of soccer look like mild agnostics of some reserve and domestic sensibility. In the Indian cricket canon, players are sanctified from across the globe, added to a sanctuary of permanent adoration in something reminiscent of ancient tradition. Much like the deities of the Roman Empire, all great cricket players, from Antigua to Sydney, find their spiritual holy ground on Indian soil, forever assimilated.

For Modi, this all meant opportunity and glory. He is the classically dangerous politician for those of the broadly described West who think they understand him. Supple, gentle, oleaginous, Modi is both unscrupulous and prone to wooing. And Albanese was there to keep him company. The teams of two great cricket nations were effectively shoehorned into the show, with Modi and Albanese giving the captains of their respective countries their caps before the games commencement.

The nexus of power in world cricket and its link Modi was also affirmed by the presence of officials from the enormously powerful Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI). They were on hand to give Modi that most vulgar of gifts: a gaudily framed photo of himself.

The scenes should have made Albanese feel uncomfortable. While Australian officials, business types and opportunists dream of market opportunities in India, it is also worth appreciating what Modi is. This is only relevant given the mighty, moral bent Canberra takes on such matters: the Chinese and Russians are seen as barbarians hammering away at the rules-based...

Russia Will Not Return to Council of Europe Diplomat

Divorce with Strasbourg is not a whim, its a well-thought decision that took a few years to rip, Nikolay Kobrinets said

Sergei Fadeichev/TASS

MOSCOW, March 24. /TASS/. Over the past year, Russia understood that its decision to quit the Council of Europe was the right thing to do, and will not return to this organization in the future, a senior Russian diplomat has told TASS in an interview.

Director of the Russian Foreign Ministrys Department of European Cooperation Nikolay Kobrinets said: "The past year proved to us that we had made the right choice [to quit the Council of Europe]."

"Our divorce with Strasbourg is not a whim, its a well-thought decision that took a few years to ripe. The Council of Europe of the present day is far from what it used to be back in 1996. Double standards, hypocrisy and Russophobia are its distinctive traits now. Clearly, with the Council of Europe of this kind, our ways have parted," the Russian diplomat said.

Kobrinets went on to say that unification principles and democratic ideals, proclaimed by the Council of Europes Charter were "sacrificed to bloc interests." In his words, the West turned the organization into its ideological appendage and used it to "impose its dubious progressivist values" on Russia and to put pressure on its government and people.

"The page has been turned. There is nothing to regret," the Russian diplomat added.

He said that Russia was not going to tarnish its 26-year-long history as a Council of Europe member.

"There were lots of useful things, particularly for the development of the Russian legislation. But this chapter is now closed," Kobrinets said.

Russia withdrew from the Council of Europe in March 2022. According to the Russian Foreign Ministry, NATO and European Union countries, who abuse their absolute majority in the Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe (CMCE), continue to pursue "a course towards the destruction of the Council of Europe and the common humanitarian and legal space in Europ...


Surf Coasts De Porsal are spearheading Australias alt-country scene with new release Soft Cowboy "IndyWatch Feed Vic"

For the last print issue of Forte, I compiled a list of Victorian up-and-comers worth keeping an eye on. After hearing De Porsals newest release Soft Cowboy, I wish I had written that article a week later. Not only are the Torquay-based four-piece well and truly deserving of being included in the list, they also are one of the few acts hailing from around the region to be bringing a genuinely different feel to the local scene.

In manys eyes, this is the most important characteristic for an up-and-coming band to possess.

Keep up with the latest music news, festivals, interviews and reviews here.

Pulling elements from country, rock, psychedelia and indie, De Porsal mark themselves as a truly unique act. Having played together since they were children, the Torquay-based outfit comprised of the Willingham brothers (Cooper, Chay, Rory and Xander) boasts an array of stylistic changeups, often bouncing between genres to create ambient, cinematic inspired arrangements. 

From the slow drawl of Coopers baritone vocals on Spur Of The Moment, to the creeping rock n roll swagger of The Soft Cowboy Pt 1, its evident that the group have dabbled heavily into a country/western rock sound for this release, however, in its entirety Soft Cowboy stands out as much more than your standard country rock record. 

Instead, its output leans more into the spacious arrangements; effortless, meandering guitar licks and left of centre instrumentation that youd expect from modern psych-rock outfits such as Khruangbin or Kikagaku Moyo. From the use of a jaw harp on Pickersgill, to the shoegaze inspired distortion of An Offer&#8217...

An inclusive sculpture has popped up on Pako Street celebrating disability, creativity and culture in the community "IndyWatch Feed Vic"

A sculpture that celebrates people who have a lived experience with disability arrived at the Geelong West Town Hall on Pakington Street.

I AM recognises the empowerment of diversity and draws from political and pop culture statements such as the 1968 Memphis black sanitation workers slogan I AM a man, and Helen Reddys 1971 anthem I AM woman.

Stay up to date with whats happening in and around the region here.

At more than two metres tall, the public artwork was designed to be relocated around the municipality and has previously been installed at the Geelong Waterfront and Austin Park in Lara.

The public art sculpture is the spectacular result from artist Mark Cuthbertson who worked with artist-collaborators Robert Croft, Hannah Wilkinson, Christian Den Besten and George Macaronis, based on over 85 contributions from the local community living with a disability through a series of artist-led workshops.

The resulting text-based works were curated by the artists and cast into the side profile of the I AM letters.

It has been a true pleasure as an artist bringing the I AM project to the Geelong community. I would like to thank my fellow artistic collaborators and the broader community members for their involvement and contributions to the work, what an amazing outcome, Cuthbertson says of working with collaborators.

Funded by the Victorian Government through the Community Support Fund, I AM was delivered in partnership with VALiD (Victorian Advocacy League for Individuals with Disabilities) and Geelong-based ArtGusto.

Each letter in the sculpture weighs around four tonnes, says Deputy Mayor Anthony Aitken, chair of the Volunteering and Disability portfolio.

I AM was designed to be relocatable so that awareness can be raised across Greater Geelong around the important concepts it conveys.

Its also designed to invite community members to be a part of the work by positioning yourself within and taking photos, joining others in the region who celebrate diversity.

Visitors can use the hashtag #IAMGeelong when posting photos to social media. I AM can be found outside the Geelong West Town Hall at 153 Pakington Street, Geelong West until October.

Former NT police officer Jared Porch pleads guilty to child abuse material offences "IndyWatch Feed National"


A former Northern Territory Police officer who offered money, alcohol and phone credit to men in exchange for sexually explicit videos, including of children, has pleaded guilty to a string of child abuse material charges.

Jared Kane Porch appeared before the Alice Springs Supreme Court on Wednesday, pleading guilty to 12 charges, including transmitting, soliciting, possessing or controlling child abuse material.

Other charges included six counts of using a carriage service to groom another person to make it easier to procure persons under 16 years of age to engage in sexual activity with themselves.

There were also two counts of using a carriage service to groom another person to make it easier to procure persons under 16 years of age to engage in sexual activity with another person.

The court heard the offending took place over a 16-month period, beginning on July 31, 2020, while Porch was a serving member of the Northern Territory Police Force.

Prosecutor Mary Chalmers SC said "a number" of the victims were Aboriginal children.

Transcript (Declassified) "IndyWatch Feed National"

Committee Chair: Please state for the record your name and title. After that, you may provide a brief testimony and we will proceed with questions and answers.

Hoover: Thank you Mr Chairman. I am J. Edgar Hoover, deceased, Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation for 48 years.

Committee Chair: You may proceed with your statement for the record.

Fmr Director Hoover: I have been asked to testify regarding the risks of the TikTok application and its implications for national security. In this matter we are dealing with technologies that I have not directly experienced, but I have had plenty of time to keep abreast of developments in technology, and, let me state with certainty, that these things do not represent anything dramatically new; they bring problems that weve dealt with to some degree or another since World War I. Admittedly, the asian race the Chinese communists that we are up against are a more serious threat than a European people, but the basics remain the same. I will, however, explain my experience in terms of recent events, since some of the younger people in the room may not be experienced with history. [laughter; Hoover was looking directly at Dianne Feinstein as he said that]

The FBIs responsibility is domestic counter-espionage, crime prevention, and counter-terrorism. I believe our most important duty is to deter and combat communist spies, and to prevent the communists from infiltrating the liberal left, who are all too happy to threaten national security with their irresponsibility. Lately, the FBI has also been tasked with combating right wing terror which is a concept I do not fully support because often that amounts to making sure that patriots among us do not get carried away. We are constantly balancing Americans liberties against the necessity of counter-intelligence and law enforcement.

De-Banking Journalists "IndyWatch Feed National"

Honest journalism has become a crime. I have appeared numerous times on Maria Zarics program, Zeee Media. Maria is a professional journalist who asks thought-provoking questions to the experts that appear on her show. Her content goes against the grain and traditional narrative. The Australian-based journalist has been questioning COVID, the Great Reset, governments, globalists, the war in Ukraine, and many other topics that are completely taboo in the mainstream media. They attempted to shut down her channel in the past. Now, she has been de-banked with no explanation.

Do you shut down peoples accounts due to their political views by any chance? Maria asked the bank representative, only to be met with silence. Maria had been banking with ING Bank for numerous years without issues. Her account was suddenly shut down shortly after releasing a story on domestic terrorism in Australia. ING Bank has been unable to explain why her account was canceled.

Interestingly, ING is a partner of the World Economic Forum. Maria has extensively covered the WEFs agenda to enslave humanity. Is Australia secretly keeping track of journalists social credit scores to silence skepticism?

The idea of eliminating someones ability to bank is essentially eliminating them from society. We saw Canada do the same thing to those protesting the Trucker Convoy. Trudeau took things a step further by also de-banking people who simply donated to the cause. The Canadian government used the premise of money laundering as a way to coerce the banks into reporting any activity that could have been intended to help the protestors. I know of numerous people who were frantically attempting to remove their funds from the bank during this time.

As if the public needed more reasons to lose trust in the banking system. This is not limited to one bank or country. I discussed how banks have the ability to cancel someone after JPMorgan Chase de-banked the rapper Kanye West for antisemitic remarks. T...


the 1933 Bank Holiday Can it Happen Again? "IndyWatch Feed National"

QUESTION: Marty there are a lot of people who seem to be trying to create a panic. Some are claiming the stock market will plunge by 50%. Others are saying nothing will survive other than gold. It seems like none of these people have any sense of what is really unfolding. They were saying the same thing for different reasons before the banking crisis. Can you offer any historical perspective?

Thank you. You seem to be the only real source these days.


ANSWER: The Bank Holiday took place the first week of March 1933. It began with governors closing down the banks in their states. Once one began, like COVID rules, they quickly jumped on the bandwagon. As reported by March 4th, 1933, some 41 states had already declared a banking holiday. Back then, the president took office in March not January. Thus, Roosevelt was sworn in on March 4th, 1933. As the new president, FDR delivered what is arguably his best-known speech.

So, first of all, let me assert my firm belief that the only thing we have to fear isfear itself nameless, unreasoning, unjustified terror which paralyzes needed efforts to convert retreat into advance. In every dark hour of our national life a leadership of frankness and of vigor has met with that understanding and support of the people themselves which is essential to victory. And I am convinced that you will again give that support to leadership in these critical days.

The Fed Does Not Back Down "IndyWatch Feed National"


COMMENT: Marty, its refreshing to have Socrates that is totally unbiased. It projected continued rising rates into next year and the Fed just proved its point. It is not backing down.

Thank you. Socrates is very enlightening.


ANSWER: I know there were a lot of talks that surely the Fed had to lower rates and start QE all over again. Most of those sorts of comments have no real experience in markets. They just mouth a lot of hot air. Perhaps instead of putting masks on cows, we should do that on the shills. The Federal Reserve had no choice but to raise interest rates although it was just by a quarter point. Not to do so and the Fed would lose all credibility and the market would then not take them seriously.

You MUST understand that this crisis has unfolded because too many banks were wrapped up in WOKE culture and hired people who were UNQUALIFIED to run risk management. Some were more excited about cross-dressing as a woman and winning the Rainbow award in banking than actually protecting the bank from the risk of rising interest rates.

In a statement released at the conclusion of the meeting, Fed officials acknowledged that recent financial market turmoil is weighing on inflation and the economy, though they expressed confidence in the overall system. The US banking system is sound and resilient. They had no choice but to make this statement.

Recent developments are likely to result in tighter credit conditions for households and businesses and to weigh on economic activity, hiring and inflation. The extent of these effects is uncertain.

The Fed is saying that their rise in rates will in fact reduce inflation and economic activity. Th...

Enjoy the season in regional Victoria on these lovely autumn walks "IndyWatch Feed Vic"

While the weather shifts once more as we enter the crisp autumn months, what better way to enjoy the cool air and changing trees than on a relaxing stroll through the great outdoors? Whatever your interest, from native plants to exotic specimens, from easy city paths to rocky treks, theres plenty to visit throughout Victoria here are just a few that make great autumn walks.

Canyon Walk

Located in the small town of Bright in the Alpine Shire area, Canyon Walk is a loop that leads visitors on a scenic journey through the natural and historical landscapes that surround the Ovens River, including a canyon carved by natural water flow and water races dug by early miners.

The full track is 3.36 km and will take just around an hour for most, but for those with less time on their hands, or concerns about the rocks and stairs in the latter half, they can cross the first suspension bridge for a shorter loop, and enjoy the autumn flora without worrying about the later uneven terrain.

For one week from Friday, April 28 to Sunday, May 7 in 2023, Bright will also be hosting their annual Autumn Festival, complete with beautiful open gardens, historical tours, and an art exhibition among other festivities, which might be a great stop for some fun before or after a scenic walk, or a trip of its own.

Why I dont believe there ever was a Covid virus "IndyWatch Feed National"

By Dr Mike Yeadon | TCW Defending Freedom | March 22, 2023

Ive grown increasingly frustrated about the way debate is controlled around the topic of origins of the alleged novel virus, SARS-CoV-2, and I have come to disbelieve its ever been in circulation, causing massive scale illness and death. Concerningly, almost no one will entertain this possibility, despite the fact that molecular biology is the easiest discipline in which to cheat. Thats because you really cannot do it without computers, and sequencing requires complex algorithms and, importantly, assumptions. Tweaking algorithms and assumptions, you can hugely alter the conclusions.

This raises the question of why there is such an emphasis on the media storm around Fauci, Wuhan and a possible lab escape. After all, the perpetrators have significant control over the media. Theres no independent journalism at present. It is not as though they need to embarrass the establishment.  I put it to readers that theyve chosen to do so.

So who do I mean by they and the perpetrators?  There are a number of candidates competing for this position, with their drug company accomplices, several of whom are named in Paula Jardines excellent five-part series for TCW, Anatomy of the sinister Covid project. High on the list is the enabling World Economic Forum and their many political acolytes including Justin Trudeau and Jacinda Aderne.

But that doesnt answer the question why are they focusing on the genesis of the virus. In my view, they are doing their darnedest to make sure you regard this event exactly as they want you to. Specifically, that there was a novel virus.

Im not alone in believing that myself at the beginning of the pandemic, but over time Ive seen sufficient evidence to cast strong doubt on that idea. Additionally, when considered as part of a global coup dtat, I have put myself in the position of the most senior, hidden perpetrators. In a Q&A, they would learn that the effect of a released novel pathogen couldnt be predicted accurately. It might burn out rapidly. Or it might turn out to be quite a lot more lethal than theyd expected, demolishing advanced civilisations. Those top decision-makers would, I submit, conclude that this natural risk is intolerable to them. They crave total control, and the wide range of possible outcomes from a deliberate release militates against this plan of action: No, were not going to do this. Come back with a plan with very much reduced uncertainty on outcomes.

The alternative I think theyve used is to add one more lie to the tall stack of lies which has s....


Juveniles Locked Up for Life Will Get a Second Chance in New Mexico. But the State Must Locate Them First. "IndyWatch Feed National"

ProPublica is a nonprofit newsroom that investigates abuses of power. Sign up for Dispatches, a newsletter that spotlights wrongdoing around the country, to receive our stories in your inbox every week.

Over the weekend, New Mexico abolished life without parole prison sentences for juveniles, affirming that people who make even the most serious mistakes as teenagers should have a second chance. The new law, signed by Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham, also requires that current prisoners serving decades behind bars for crimes they committed as minors get a parole hearing.

ProPublica reported earlier this month that the New Mexico Corrections Department had lost track of at least 21 juvenile lifers, apparently unaware of who the eligible prisoners are, where they are and how they will be identified for the parole hearings that they now, under the law, deserve.

In a statement Monday in response to ProPublicas reporting, Grishams office said that the corrections agency, which answers to the governor, is working to screen all prisoners in its custody who are serving life sentences, in order to compile a list of those newly eligible for parole.

The effort to find them may require the department to go back through the individual court records of prisoners who entered NMCD custody at or around 18 years old including some who are now being held in out-of-state facilities to see if their crime was committed before that age. It also will mean working with the ACLU of New Mexico, which has led the effort to identify these individuals.

The New Mexico law is premised on multiple recent Supreme Court decisions and studies of brain science that have found that kids are impulsive, prone to risk-taking, bad at understanding the consequences of their actions and highly susceptible to peer pressure (often committing their offenses among groups of friends), all of which make them less culpable than adults when they commit crimes. They are also,...


Blackout: Sy Hersh Says US, Germany Coordinated NYT False Cover Story for Nord Stream Bombing "IndyWatch Feed National"

By Fantine Gardinier Sputnik 22.03.2023

On September 26, 2022, a massive explosion ripped through the Nord Stream 1 and 2 pipelines on the Baltic seabed, severing a major natural gas connection and releasing colossal amounts of methane. The US had long objected to the line, which runs from Russia to Germany, urging Europe to buy more expensive US gas instead.

A new report by investigative journalist Seymour Hersh lays blame at the feet of US and German intelligence for a New York Times article claiming it was Ukrainian terrorists, not US Navy divers, who bombed the Nord Stream pipeline last September. Hersh said it was part of a coordinated blackout of his expose of Washingtons role in the attack.

There is no evidence that any reporter assigned there has yet to ask the White House press secretary whether Biden had done what any serious leader would do: formally task the American intelligence community to conduct a deep investigation, with all of its assets, and find out just who had done the deed in the Baltic Sea, Hersh wrote on Wednesday.

According to a source within the intelligence community, the president has not done so, nor will he, the journalist asserted. Why not? Because he knows the answer.

Hersh pointed to a curious meeting in Washington earlier this month between Biden and German Chancellor Olaf Scholz in which both media and aides were almost totally absent.

There have been no statements or written understandings made public since then by either government, but I was told by someone with access to diplomatic intelligence that there was a discussion of the pipeline expos and, as a result, certain elements in the Central Intelligence Agency were asked to prepare a cover story in collaboration with German intelligence that would provide the American and German press with an alternative version for the destruction of Nord Stream 2, Hersh wrote.

In the words of the intelligence community, the agency was to pulse the system in an effort to discount the claim that Biden had ordered the pipelines destruction, he explained.

Indeed, The New York Times, which was one of two newspapers that ran the story, has admitted in the past to letting the CIA proofread certain stories before publishing them.

Along with the NYT, which published an article on March 7 claiming a pro-Ukrainian group might have been behind the pipeline explosion, the German weekly Der Zeit published a companion piece that same day claiming German investigative officials had found a luxury yacht chartered by a group of Ukrainians under false pretenses in the area of the explosions just a few wee...


White House Releases Economic Report On Bitcoin: Here's What They Got Wrong "IndyWatch Feed National"

The latest report from the Biden Administration writes off the benefits of Bitcoin while ignoring the fundamentals and economic activity that give it value.

The White House has released the extensive Economic Report of the President, which included a section titled Digital Assets: Relearning Economic Principles. This section detailed Bitcoin, its functionality and various possible benefits that proponents claim for this popularity of crypto assets. 

The proponents claims the report intends to address vary from crypto assets serving as investment vehicles and enabling fast digital payments, to improving the United States current financial technology infrastructure. The report then addresses the Reality of Crypto Assets, as the section is so titled, setting the record straight in the eyes of the Administration. 

Compared with many other asset types, crypto assets are very volatile, and, hence, highly risky, the report begins with. Because they are very volatile, crypto assets can be used for speculation, an investment strategy that seeks to make a profit from short-run trading. One reason many crypto assets are highly volatile is that many of them do not have a fundamental value. It then goes on to provide the example of stocks and debt, comparing them to unbacked crypto assets [that] are traded without fundamental anchors, suggesting that their market prices only reflect speculative demand, or market sentiment, not claims on cash flow.

In between this and the next statement, is an interjection Box 8-2 which details How Does Bitcoin Work? This box, coincidentally, may serve as the answer to the question of, what is Bitcoins fundamental value? in its description of the inner workings of Bitcoin.

Straw manning bitcoins proponents, the report then goes on to state that one of the purported benefits of crypto assets like bitcoin was to hedge against inflation, meaning that their value does not erode as inflation increases. But as inflation increased globally in the second half of 2021 and in 2022, the prices of crypto assets collapsed, proving them to be, at best, an ineffective inflation hedge. While the inflation narrative surrounding the 2020-2021 bull market did prove a distraction, the price of bitcoin still soared during the pandemic, reaching all time highs of $69,000. Besides that, bitcoin has still been serving as a store of value for those living in countries with highly i...


Famous person found to have ordinary genetic history "IndyWatch Feed National"

Its only about 200 years old, pulling a DNA sequence out of a hair sample is a piece of cake. So Beethovens DNA has been sequenced. He even gave permission!

In 1802, German composer Ludwig van Beethoven wrote a heart-wrenching letter to his brothers, describing the deafness that forced him to live like an exile and yearn for death. Beethoven kept going for another 25 years, propelled by his music, but he begged them to have his hearing loss studied and publicized, so that so far as possible, the world may be reconciled to me after my death.

Two centuries later, a team of international researchers has answered that plea by sequencing Beethovens DNA, preserved in locks of his hair that collaborators and fans collected as treasured keepsakes.

The central ailment of Beethovens life was his hearing loss, which began in his mid-20s. He also suffered from debilitating gastrointestinal symptoms and attacks of jaundice. An autopsy revealed that he had cirrhosis of the liver, pancreatitis and a swollen spleen. Medical biographers have debated what killed him and whether his liver disease was the result of excessive drinking or some other cause.

There are limits to what you can do with DNA. They found no genetic evidence for his hearing loss. They did find signs of a susceptibility to liver disease, and that he had hepatitis B. There is absolutely no indication of a genetic source for his musical talent. Id go so far as to say it is silly to select a 19th century person for a genetic analysis on the basis of musical ability, which is mostly going to be due to circumstance, rather than intrinsic nature (there may be exceptions, like the heritability of perfect pitch, but even that is pretty wobbly.

They did discover something that ol Ludwig Van would not have anticipated and probably wouldnt want advertized.

The analysis also yielded a surprise: Beethovens Y chromosome didnt match those from living relatives. The common relative they all share was Aert van Beethoven, who lived in the 16th century. Somewhere in the seven generations between Aert and Ludwig van Beethoven, a woman in the family tree had a child with an unknown man, and Beethoven seems to be a descendant of that pairing.

Weve probably all got evidence of ancestral indiscretions in our genes, though, so that shouldnt reflect on Beethoven, or on his unidentified female ancestor.

CND condemns UK decision to send depleted uranium shells to Ukraine

The UK government is sending depleted uranium shells for use in the Challenger 2 tanks gifted to Ukraine, a move CND has condemned as an additional environmental and health disaster for those living through the conflict.

Defence Minister Baroness Goldie admitted in the answer to a written question that armour piercing rounds containing depleted uranium (DU) were included in its tank package for Kiev. She added that the rounds are highly effective in defeating modern tanks and armoured vehicles.

A byproduct of the nuclear enriching process used to make nuclear fuel or nuclear weapons, DU emits three quarters of the radioactivity of natural uranium and shares many of its risks and dangers. It is used in armour piercing rounds as it is heavy and can easily penetrate steel. However on impact, toxic or radioactive dust can be released and subsequently inhaled.

DU shells were used extensively by the US and British in Iraq in 1991 and 2003, as well as in the Balkans during the 1990s.

It is thought that the extensive use of these shells is responsible for the sharp rise in the incidence rate of some cancers like breast cancer or lymphoma in the areas they were used. Other illnesses linked to DU include kidney failure, nervous system disorders, lung disease and reproductive problems. However, a lack of reliable data on exposure to DU means no large-scale study on its true impact exists.

CND General Secretary Kate Hudson said:

Like in Iraq, the addition of depleted uranium ammunition into this conflict will only increase the long-term suffering of the civilians caught up in this conflict. DU shells have already been implicated in thousands of unnecessary deaths from cancer and other serious illnesses. CND has repeatedly called for the UK government to place an immediate moratorium on the use of depleted uranium weapons and to fund long-term studies into their health and environmental impacts. Sending them into yet another war zone will not help the people of Ukraine.
