Doublethink "IndyWatch Feed National"

Image may contain: outdoor 

The doublethink of the disability sector just astounds me. 

In case you don't know about that book...there is a book by George Orwell called 'Nineteen Eighty Four'.  Lots of people will have read it. It's a book that was written almost 70 years ago. 

The book was about this society which was run by 'the Party' - this grey, awful, brainwashed society where everything you did was watched by the government (the Party), where everything was strictly rationed, where your thoughts were controlled by propaganda, where independent thought and action or a perceived lack of loyalty was swiftly and brutally punished. 

And then there was double-think. 

Doublethink was a word that Orwell invented. The characters in the book had to learn doublethink to be regarded as a 'good Party member' - if you ever deviated from what the government was saying, it was akin to blasphemy. People who disagreed with the 'party line' were shunned.

Doublethink was about holding two contradictory beliefs in your mind simultaneously and accepting both of them. Forgetting any fact that was inconvenient, but 'bringing it back from oblivion for just as long as it is needed'. It's about tampering with reality, rejecting morality while laying claim to it, consciously inducting unconsciousness.

WERE BACK Letter to 21WIRE Readers "IndyWatch Feed National"

A NARRATIVE IN TATTERS: Propaganda poster for the UK-funded White Helmets, the Free Syrian Police and Aleppo Councils (Photo: Patrick Henningsen, May 2017, East Aleppo, Syria)

Dear Readers,

Glad to have you back. Firstly, we would like to apologise for being offline most of last week. Weve been working hard behind the scenes to get back online.

On Tuesday April 10th, 2018 at approximately 2pm EST, 21stCenturyWire.com has been under a sustained a heavy Denial of Service (DDoS) cyber attack and were only able to restore our systems yesterday afternoon. We were not the only ones. Other leading alternative news websites were also hit at this exact time, including South Front, Hands Off Syria (Australia-based antiwar organisation), Fort-Russ, Syria News and others each of who are covering the situation in Syria closely and truthfully. Based on the number of page requests or bots that were hitting us each hour, this seemed similar to what happened to Craig Murrays blog two weeks prior. In addition to the online attacks on alternative media outlets, Facebook was blocking similar content on their platform including South Front, until they appealed and were eventually reinstated. Based on these facts, we believe that its not highly likely but 100% certain that the party(s) attacking us and other similar platforms did so on behalf of a state actor and in the interests of prosecuting another illegal war by way of deception based on a false pretext. The entire false case for this latest US, UK and French missile strike relied on spurious claims made by US-funded opposition group called the...

Jennifer Hart Murder/Suicide "IndyWatch Feed National"

Fight Child Protection Department Corruption: 
Jennifer Hart Foster Parent Murder Suicide

Foster Child Abusers Murder/Suicide

When you think about your children being removed and your situation, what do you reflect on?

Were you on drugs, were you an alcoholic? Where you struggling to cope for other reasons, or simply did you ring the department of child protection to get some advice or help, for a child rather than yourself?

Did you have a stressful situation, were you leaving domestic violence and still in the danger period where the abuser is trying to protect himself against allegations of violent behaviour, and you were trying to share parenting or co parent with someone who would never do that with you?

Did you have a sick or disabled child you needed help with and instead the child was removed? I could go on and ask many questions from you, about why you lost your child, but in your wildest dreams when losing your son or daughter to the system, none of us are prepared to think that the system is not providing a safe environment for the child.

None of us prior to the explosion of the internet websites and Facebook pages and groups, would have understood the wicked web that is child protection and the dependency of what has been created as a tool to provide a multi billion dollar industry today.

This tool as a child protection industry requires a willing workforce that has the backing of the legal system and the courts of a number of western countries and utilises the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, adopted and opened for signature, ratification and accession by General Assembly resolution 44/25 of 20 November 1989 entry into force 2 September 1990, in accordance with article 49 to process children who are removed through their system and pump them into waiting foster homes where the money trails of government funding extend as they draw towards the end of the line.

Its Gonna Be a Bumpy Ride, Kid: A Note to my 13-Year-Old Self "IndyWatch Feed National"

Looking down at my feet, I have to keep reminding myself Im wearing takeaway boxes as shoes. I curl my toes as I feel the heat from the tarmac penetrating the not-so-durable cardboard that protects my feet. I never thought I would find myself in the middle of an airport clad in such footwear, in the driest heat imaginable, waiting for a 200-seater plane to finally take me home.

At the ripe age of 13, I was not like most girls of today with their nips popping out of their shirts. Rather, I had pimples popping out from under my horrendous fringe. I remember lying on my bed with its flannelette, mandala-print sheets, hopelessly wondering what the world had to offer me in the future in terms of travel.

I dreamed of sunsets over sand dunes and exploring vast deserts on camel back, sipping champagne on terracotta terraces and, maybe, finding love with some foreign prince charming like in the clich chick flicks I would fill my Friday nights with.

When it came time to head out on my own, I soon realised that travelling is not a blockbuster movie. I didnt have a million-dollar budget; I wasnt surrounded by Clooneys and DiCaprios; and to be quite frank, camels stink like shit and champagne tastes revolting. Travelling, like the rest of life, is just a series of good and bad moments in different places that are defined by your attitude towards them.

Some may ask if Im qualified to make these accusations against a multimillion dollar industry that captures the spirit of the young and the old, and undoubtedly, I am.

So Im standing at the airport, worlds away from my naive 13-year-old self, with takeaway boxes as shoes. This odd predicament begins with a goat that I met at an animal wildlife sanctuary on an island in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. With a few hours to fill in before my flight back home to Australia, I figured a quick visit to a local attraction, such as the animal sanctuary, could do no harm.

Making my way through the animal enclosures, I noticed a figure following me from one to the next. Enter Jonathan the goat: a small, pudgy, white-bearded creature that was fond of my company. Parading around, we took photos, we shared a salad sandwich and even fed the ducks together at a rather small pond (puddle) in the middle of the property.

It came time to leave, so I went to exit the way I came in: through a one-way turnstile activated by the ticket I purchased upon entry. Jonathan seemed quite keen to accompany me, and checking with the keepers, they seemed fine with...

Residents warned not to leave, Sydney fire worsens  SMH, By Jacob Saulwick, 15 April 2018

Fire authorities have issued an emergency warning for some suburbs in south-west Sydney, telling residents to seek shelter.

At about midday on Sunday, residents in Voyager Point, Pleasure Point and Sandy Point were advised not to leave their properties and to protect themselves from the heat of an out-of-control fire.

Residents in Alfords Point, Menai and West Barden Ridge were advised to shelter in place as the bush fire approached.

April 15 #OnThisDay in #Australian #History "IndyWatch Feed National"

1788 - Arthur Phillip, who'd had a decent night's snooze, led a bush walk to Manly and eyeballed the Blue Mountains.

1790 - Arthur Phillip wasn't feeling too well (probably a lack of rest at night) and so he penned a missive to Lord Sydney asking for permission to return to England.

1793 - Tuki Tahua and Ngahuruhuru were kidnapped by the British and arrived in Sydney on this day.

1794 - Armed watchmen guarding the crop of maize at Toongabbie shot three Darug Aboriginal men and beheaded one to prove their tale; on this day Judge Advocate Richard Atkins scribed in his diary how,
The head of one is brought in and the Lt. Govr [Major Francis Grose] has preserved it, as a present for Dr. Hunter.
*vomit*

1800 - Phillip Gidley King rocked up, as fresh as a daisy, to take over as Guv from Hunter.Among the great unwashed on board were naturalist and explorer George Caley, engineer and explorer Francis Louis Barrallier and 50 convicts.

1804 - The Sydney Gazette employed sharp, on the ball reporters - who obviously got their 8 hours dreaming - who mentioned a new gambling game called "Chuck Farthing" which later became known as Two Up.

1822 - An Illawarra Aboriginal woman was fired at, and set upon by dogs, whilst in the act of appropriating corn from a local settler near Lake Illawarra. Whilst a number of convicts were initially involved in the attack, one Seth Hawker later returned to the scene, shot the woman in the stomach, and again set the dogs upon her. As a result she died in the field, unattended. Hawker was subsequently tried in Sydney for wilful murder, and acquitted by the Judge Advocate, with the womens act of theft clearly identified as culpable and Hawker commended for endeavouring to protect that property that was confided to his care.
*vomit*

1823 - Allan Cunningham departed Bathurst to find an easier overland stock route to the Liverpool Plains.

1828 -  The persecution of Tasmanias Aboriginal population intensified on this day, with a government proclamation banning them from all settled areas. The Lieutenant Governor Sir George Arthur said the order was designed to reduce the incidence of violence between the Aborigines and the white settlers, which had led to death, injury and dispossession on both sides.

1833 - Governor Burke visited Newcastle having made the voyage from Sydney on the Steamer Sophia Jane where an address was presented to him by some of the leading citizens of the Newcastle district.

1834 - Dr. John Lhotsky, the Polish born naturalist, explored parts of the Bega region in 1834 visiting unsettled country before any European system of settlement or roads had been established that decreed how traffic should go from and to. In a letter to the Sydney Gazette on this day he r...

Futurologist Claims Humans May Become Immortal By The Year 2050 "IndyWatch Feed National"

Futurologist, Dr. Ian Pearson seem to believe the ability to live forever might be within our grasp very soon. He claims people who are born after the year 1970 could have a very real chance at immortality.

Pearson told The Sun that he believes we are very close to achieving immortality and in the future, we will be able to live forever. As you probably know, we have been wanting to figure out a way to live forever and avoid death since well, basically the beginning of everything. Living forever is something that we consider to be highly controversial and without a doubt fascinating.

According to The Sun Pearson has said as follows:

There are quite a lot of people interested in living forever. There always has been, but the difference now is tech is improving so quickly, lots of people believe they can actually do it.

No one wants to live forever at 95 years old, but if you could rejuvenate the body to 29 or 30, you might want to do that.

A long time before we get to fix our bodies and rejuvenate it everytime we feel like, well be able to link our minds to the machine world so well, well effectively be living in the cloud.

The mind will basically be in the cloud, and be able to use any android that you feel like to inhabit the real world. If you want to spend the evening in Australia, going to the Sydney opera house, you could use an android.

He even went over the world of sex dolls and has this to say:

The current state of sex dolls are starting to look quite human-like. Give them another 30 years of development and theyll be extremely human-like. You can take any android body and they will look human-like, and download whatever mind you want. You could share one with someone else, or have one yourself, or own dozens of them.

While of course, the first people to use these robotic bodies will be the rich people, in the end, prices will drop down to where everyone else will have access as well. He says that regardless of what happens to our bodies, in that time our minds will....

Encounters with Enoch "IndyWatch Feed Northcoast"

As I look ahead, I am filled with foreboding; like the Roman, I seem to see the River Tiber foaming with much blood

Fifty years ago, conservative British MP Enoch Powell got himself sacked as a shadow minister after he controversially warned that Britain would face rivers of blood if it did not reduce immigration. The BBC has now kicked off a shit-storm by announcing that Scottish actor and erstwhile Stars Wars emperor Ian McDiarmid will recite Enochs incendiary speech in full for the very first time.

What Powell said back then, at closed gathering of Conservative Party faithful in Birmingham on 20th April 1968, was regarded as unacceptably over the top, rhetorical hyperbole. But we get stuff like this all the time these days. Every Tom, Dick and Himmler on the right of politics from Brixton to Brisbane, from Galveston to Gdask, from Hopkins to Hanson, come up with this and worse every day to the delight of dog-whistling shock-jocks, populist politicians, and angry white men and women who want somebody or other to go back to where theyre came from which quite often happens to be just around the corner: comedian Lenny Henry, raised in the Midlands Black Country (just west of Birmingham) which many wanted to make white, would satirize such white delusions: In a gig at West Bromwich , he said the National Front wanted to give black people 1,000 to go home. Fine, Henry said: after all, that would more than cover his bus fare back to Dudley.

After what was regarded at the time as Britains most racist election in 1964, Liverpudlian bard Brian Patten penned the wistful, unseasonable Im Dreaming of a White Smethwick (just down the road from Brum and Dudley) in response to the the mood of certain sections in the population about immigration, a mood which entered the national dialogue in odorous array once Enoch let slip the hounds of woe, and which, as the Brexit referendum and its fallout continue to demonstrate, has never dissipated.

Immigration debates are running hot in western democracies, including down here in Australia, and on the neo-authoritarian eastern edges of the European Union, as fringe and mainstream parties defend and propound their invariably conflicting and flawed understanding of western civilization against disparate and often doomsday scenarios of mass migration and islamification. .

This is not, however, the time or place to eng...

An open secret: Childhood allergy epidemic launched by alum adjuvant vaccines "IndyWatch Feed National"

The epidemic of allergy in children was launched in the period between the late 1980s and early 1990s. ER admission records, back-to-back United Kingdom (UK) cohort studies and eyewitness accounts of teachers confronted by the flood of severely allergic children confirm this period of change. This allergy epidemic occurred in specific countries (UK, Australia, Canada, US primarily), involving just children and at the same time. What has the power to do that? In my book, I traced some of the history of allergy and anaphylaxis-words coined to describe an outcome of having for the first time paired a vaccine with the needle. Thus, doctors became keenly aware of the danger of contaminant proteins in any injected product. Using the theory of food oils in the vaccines to explain the sudden nature of epidemic allergy does nothing to forward the conversation. We did not suddenly put food oils, bee venom, latex, dust, pollens, etc. in the vaccines.

It is getting harder and harder to believe Facebook Inc's denials of intentional harm "IndyWatch Feed Northcoast"


The fact that Facebook Inc. re-named the street in which it is headquartered "1 Hacker Way" should have been a clue to this social media giant's business ethos but it obviously didn't register with national governments and everyday Internet users. 

By the time All tech reported this on 11 November 2016 we were all a little more informed, but Facebook was still trying to pull the wool over our eyes:

Mark Zuckerberg says the notion that fake news influenced the U.S. presidential election is "a pretty crazy idea."

The Facebook CEO is finding himself in a unique position in this election cycle. Many news organizations have come under fire for their coverage of the campaign. Now Facebook is getting it too, as a modern media company that does not vet fake news from its News Feed and that, critics argue, allows users to stay in information bubbles that reinforce existing prejudices.

Zuckerberg took both these criticisms head-on yesterday, at a conference called Techonomy. (You can find the full interview on his Facebook feed.)

He says hoaxes existed before his platform was created. They aren't new, and people who say misinformation is why Donald Trump won simply do not get it...

Bad antibodies made good: The immune systems secret weapon uncovered "IndyWatch Feed Nsw"

In a world first, scientists from Sydneys Garvan Institute of Medical Research have revealed how a population of bad antibodies in the immune system which are usually silenced because they can harm the body can provide crucial protection against invading microbes. The research was carried out in mice.

The bad antibodies are known to react against the bodys own tissues and can cause autoimmune disease. For this reason, it was once thought that they were discarded by the immune system or that they were made inactive in the long term. However, the new findings show for the first time that bad antibodies go through a rapid redemption process and are activated when the body is faced with a disease threat that other antibodies cannot tackle.

As a result, the redeemed antibodies no longer threaten the body, but instead become powerful weapons to fight disease and particularly diseases that evade the immune system by disguising themselves to look like normal body tissue.

Maules Creek geology and our water "IndyWatch Feed Nsw"

Maules Creek geology has a lot to do with the groundwater behaviour in the area. The above map was taken from the Upper Namoi Groundwater Source Status Report 2006 2011, which provides a useful summary of groundwater history in Maules Creek pre-mining.

Zone 11 is a small part of the Namoi Valley Groundwater Region (see map) but boasts a significant inventory of groundwater monitoring bores (12), including 5 with telemetry. Find out more here Groundwater monitoring at Maules Creek.

The Status Report makes it plain the financial and operational pain that groundwater entitlement holders have shouldered, with allocations reduced by 75% in order to stabilise the declining groundwater levels in the district, ;

At the commencement of the Plan on the 1st November 2006 groundwater entitlements in the Zone 11 were reduced from approximately 8.7 GL down to 2.2 GL.

The objective of the Plan is to reduce the total extraction in Zone 11 to 2,200 ML by the 2016 2017 water year.

The objectives of the Plan were largely achieved by 2011 with a significant reduction in entitlements and annual groundwater usage, well before the 2016 2017 deadline.

Ironically, 2016 2017, could see the biggest threat to Zone 11 groundwater levels that weve seen. And this threat could come not from the irrigation industry but from the connectivity of the alluvial aquifers with the coal seams  which underlie much of Maules Creek.

Father Treats Crohn's Disease by Juicing Cannibis "IndyWatch Feed National"




Here once again we have private use been interfered with by government fiat. The whole controversy regarding the use of cannabis has now switched over from its application as a recreational drug to its burgeoning applications in therapy generally.

The fact is that it can be readily processed at home to produce a therapeutic juice. Smoking is not indicated at all for therapeutic applications.  What has been quickly learned is that there is no reason to get high which is always undesirable anyway.

All this tells me that there is ample reason to grow a patch well out of sight back in some bush.  Easy enough to do and if small enough it would take real luck to locate.  Plenty of good old boys do hie off into the bush to avoid spending money on living and here we have an excellent way to produce a real living to boot.
 
I would never recommend any such thing, but i do want to indicate the real absurdity of attempting to stop this movement now that it is breaking out from the smokers and shifting over to the health juicers..


Father Treats Crohn's Disease by Juicing Cannibis

Anna Hunt, Staff Writer

http://www.wakingtimes.com/2018/03/27/father-effectively-treats-daughters-crohns-disease-by-juicing-cannabis/


ABC News Australia recently reported on a story about a desperate father. Stephen Taylors two daughters were fighting Crohns disease, which causes chronic inflammation of the digestive tract.

Hybrid swarm of 'mega-pests' threatens crops worldwide, scientists warn "IndyWatch Feed National"

New strain could be significant biosecurity risk and has potential to go 'completely undetected' A pair of major agricultural pests have combined to produce a "mega-pest" that could threaten crops around the world. Losses from the original pest species, cotton bollworms and corn earworms, already amounts to billions of dollars worth of food. But a hybrid of the two, shows signs of rapidly developing resistance to pesticides and it scientists fear it could cross international boundaries undetected, wiping out all the crops it comes across. Bollworms and earworms are closely related. The bollworm has its origins in Africa, Asia and Europe while the earworm is a native of the Americas. Both are in fact moth caterpillars and they feed on more than 100 plant species including vital crops like corn, cotton, tomato and soybean. A team of Australian scientists who discovered the hybrid mega-pests think the combination of international species could be creating a new strain with unlimited geographical boundaries. It is impossible to tell which individuals are hybrids just by looking at them, meaning by the time the hybrids have been detected it may be too late. "A hybrid such as this could go completely undetected should it invade another country," said Dr Paul De Barro, a biosecurity expert at Australia's Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO). The scientists studied nine from Brazil and found that every one was a hybrid.

I want everybody to know that work currently going on at Asaba Stadium is a contractor-financed project, Okowa told The Guardian during the week on phone from the Gold Coast, Australia, venue of the on-going 2018 Commonwealth Games.
There was a media report earlier this week that Governor Ifeanyi Okowa had released N1billion for the project and that the money was misappropriated by the supposedly trusted handlers. The report further stated that the governor had expressed serious anger over the way the project earlier billed to be completed in April, 2018 had abysmally failed, and as such, had constituted a three-man probe panel to look into the fraud.
But an angry Tony Okowa revealed that there was no iota of truth in the story saying: This is certainly the work of mischief-makers, who are doing everything possible to prevent the government from completing the project. As I said, the work is a contractor-financed project, and as we speak, government has not released one kobo to the contractor. He will get his money as soon as the job is completed.
There are some people whose major work in the state is to cause trouble by crying wolf where there is none. They move from one location to another trying to paint people black because of the...

The Weekend Quiz April 14-15, 2018 answers and discussion "IndyWatch Feed Nsw"

Here are the answers with discussion for this Weekends Quiz. The information provided should help you work out why you missed a question or three! If you havent already done the Quiz from yesterday then have a go at it before you read the answers. I hope this helps you develop an understanding of modern monetary theory (MMT) and its application to macroeconomic thinking. Comments as usual welcome, especially if I have made an error.

Question 1:

Assume that the external deficit of a nation is on average over the economic cycle equal to 2 per cent of GDP and that the government balances its fiscal position when averaged over the same cycle. We can conclude that on average the private domestic sector overall:

(a) Is spending more than it is earning.

(b) Is spending less that it is earning.

(c) Cannot say for sure as we dont know the pattern of fiscal balances over the cycle.

The answer is Option (a) Is spending more than it is earning..

Note that this question doesnt investigate how the economy might get into this situation. But whatever behavioural forces were at play, the sectoral balances all have to sum to zero. Once you understand that, then deduction leads to the correct answer.

To refresh your memory the balances are derived as follows. The basic income-expenditure model in macroeconomics can be viewed in (at least) two ways: (a) from the perspective of the sources of spending; and (b) from the perspective of the uses of the income produced. Bringing these two perspectives (of the same thing) together generates the sectoral balances.

From the sources perspective we write:

(1) GDP = C + I + G + (X M)

which says that total national income (GDP) is the sum of total final consumption spending (C), total private investment (I), total government spending (G) and net exports (X M).

Expression (1) tells us that total income in the economy per period will be exactly equal to total spending from all sources of expenditure.

We also have to acknowledge that financial balances of the sectors are impacted by net government taxes (T) which includes all tax revenue minus total transfer and interest payments (the latter are not counted independently in the expenditure Expression (1)).

Further, as noted above the trade account is only one aspect of the financial flows between the domestic economy and the external sector. we have to include net external income flows (FNI).

Adding in the net external income f...

U.S. inspects Chinese-funded Vanuatu wharf ahead of military exercise Does China want to establish a permanent military base in the Pacific island nation? "IndyWatch Feed National"

Reuters

SYDNEY (Reuters) The United States has conducted a survey of a Chinese-funded wharf in Vanuatu ahead of a military exercise by U.S. forces planned for the South Pacific later this year, the U.S. Marine Corps said on Saturday.

Location of Vanuatu

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vanuatu

The wharf had been the subject of reports in Australias Fairfax Media that China wanted to establish a permanent military base in the Pacific island nation.

Vanuatu warf after improvement

Both Vanuatu and China denied the report amid heightened tension with the United States over Chinas activity in the South China Sea.

U.S. Marine Corps Lieutenant Colonel Curtis L. Hill told Reuters by email that a small contingent of Marines from 1 Marine Expeditionary Force based in California had conducted a site survey in preparation for the exercise that U.S. forces will hold.

The site survey was conducted due to the likely participation of a Military Sealift Command support vessel in the exercise, he said.

Vanuatu, about 2,000 km (1,200 miles) east of northern Australia, was home to a key U.S. Navy base during World War Two that helped beat back the Japanese army as it advanced through the Pacific toward Australia.

There is heightened interest in the wharf in Luganville town because it could be big enough to allow warships to dock at it. Its primary use is to cater for cargo vessels and ferries.

Documentary Stare Into the Lights My Pretties "IndyWatch Feed National"

By Dr. Mercola

Technology didnt come about by accident, its a reflection of human will, or so claims the intriguing documentary, Stare Into the Lights My Pretties. Yet, with the rate of technological development continuing to grow exponentially, its unclear if anyone envisioned how society would become obsessed with staring at screens, such that our waking hours are dominated by them in one form or another.

In the beginning, there were only a few ways to get new technology funded, known as the ABCs. A, for armed forces, included ARPA, the Advanced Research Projects Agency, which commissioned the work that started the internet. B, for bureaucracy, refers to innovations such as government sites intended to deliver information and services, including online tax returns. C, or corporate power, made up the third arm, which drove the development of new products to draw in new markets.

According to Lelia Green, a professor and senior lecturer at the school of communications at Edith Cowan University, Perth, Australia, who is featured in the film, Google would offer many examples of corporate power driving development.1 Yet, social engagement is the new driver of technology that has taken off more so in recent years. Green notes that distributed collaborators and everyday innovators are now an important driver of technology.

The acknowledgement of distributed networks of collaborators allows recognition of the creative power of harnessing the hive; the community of people engaged in a shared activity, she says. We see these alliances of enthusiasts working creatively and productively in gaming contexts, in wikis and on fan fiction sites to name but a few, but what does all of this mean, and what will happen if this technological culture is left to continue unchecked?

Are Machines Running Our Lives?

At the foundation of the documentary is the unsettling question of whos really in control: the machines or us? The film gives some unsettling statistics of how integrated technology has become in our 21st century lives:

  • Over 3.8 billion people have access to the internet
  • There are 2 billion active Facebook users every month
  • The average adult spends more than eight hours a day with screens (more time than sleep)
  • Within the first 15 minutes of waking up, 4 out of 5 smartphone users check their phones
  • By the time the average person reaches 70, they will have spent the equivalent of 10 to 15 years of their life watchin...

Soothe Your Senses With Spearmint Tea "IndyWatch Feed National"

Mint (genus Mentha) plants are perennials known for their fragrant, toothed leaves with purple, pink or white flowers (depending on the species). Furthermore, they are regarded for their fruity, aromatic taste.1 According to Encyclopaedia Britannica, there are 25 species belonging to the mint family (Lamiaceae). They are native to Eurasia, North America, South African and Australia, but they have become naturalized in many other places around the world.2

One mint plant much-loved around the world is spearmint (Mentha spicata), which can grow up to a height of 12 to 24 inches. Spearmint is distinguished by its bright, green leaves that are pointed, along with spiky lavender flowers that reach up to 4 inches in length.3 This particular species is known for being the source of spearmint tea, a type of herbal tea enjoyed around the world.

What Is Spearmint Tea?

Spearmint tea is essentially a drink made by brewing fresh leaves of the spearmint plant in boiling water. This contrasts to other types of tea, which are mainly prepared using dried leaves that are steeped in a bag. The reason for this is because spearmint tastes best when used fresh. The plant is also known for its sweet taste that is slightly weaker than peppermint.4

Aside from tea, spearmint makes an appearance in a variety of foods, mainly soups, salads, meats, fish and other beverages. Extracts from the plant are used to flavor a diverse range of products, such as toothpastes, jellies and sweets.5

Studies Regarding the Potential Benefits of Spearmint Tea

Drinking tea is one of the most popular pastimes around the world and is noted for bringing a variety benefits to your health. In the context of spearmint tea, it may help:6

What is not stated below is that he often supplies psychiatrist reports, sometimes at the cost of $30 000 per family, for NSW department human services.

This man gets the cost of a luxury car for each family he desecrates.

In an emergency he will be contacted by Child Protection Hospital Units (CPHU) for a quick over the phone assessment which gives department community services the power to remove any child. This is called an hypothesis.

Bombing in Syria not the way to peace in Syria - Julie Bishop reckless "IndyWatch Feed National"

Bombing not the answer for peace in Syria, rather a dangerous mistake - Independent and Peaceful Australia Network. Australian Foreign Minister Julie Bishops reckless support for a military strike by the US in Syria demonstrates Australias lack of independence in its foreign policy.

IPAN spokesperson Mr Stephen Darley said, Surely it is clear that any military exchange between Russian and US forces threatens a dangerous widening of the conflict and the lives of millions.

The Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons has accepted an invitation from the Syrian government to inspect the region where an alleged chemical weapon attack occurred demonstrating a willingness to support its claim they had not conducted such an attack.

The video showing children being hosed down allegedly from a chemical weapons attack needs to be investigated. Any chemical attack is an inhumane and illegal act, requiring the strongest condemnation.

If there is proof that chemical weapons have been used in Syria, regardless of who was behind it, then there needs to be serious consequences in the international court of justice where crimes against humanity are legitimately dealt with.

What is clear is that a bombing assault on sites in Syria is neither legal, effective nor acceptable. The risks of even more innocent people suffering death, injury and destruction of homes and the risk that a major powers war could ensue is being recognised internationally.

Mr Darley is calling on the Foreign Minister and the Prime Minister to clearly reject the proposed missile attack and instead be a voice of reason in calling for all non-military means possible to be adopted to resolve the conflict.

This press release was issued two days before Mr Trumps attack of today.

Norway's Child Protection System as Heavy Handed as Western Countries "IndyWatch Feed National"

Forums: 

I read an article this morning regarding "The Barnevernet" as child protection authorities are called in Norway. They have unlimited powers and answer to no one, much the same as the child protection system in Australia, Canada, the UK, the US. There is no other authority policing the corruption which has now taken of this system portraying itself as a protector of children when it is nothing more than a kidnapping rort.

Norways Orwellian system of child protection and care

The story is written by a politician who did not believe that children could be wrongly taken by the state, until he personally investigated The Barnevernet. He quotes several different stories that he himself personally investigated and when he took the evidence to other politicians they did not want to know about it.

Why do child protection systems such as The Barnevernet, CPS, FACS, DoCS... all the different names they come under which portray themselves as protectors of children, why do they get away with such corruption? Because if you have a complaint about these departments, you only have a complaints system run by the department you are complaining about. There is no transparency or accountability.

In Australia they have been apologising for stolen generations by the government for years, yet they continue to increase the number of children they are removing, over 40 000 children are in Out of Home Care in Australia. It is time for the incredible number of parents, children and foster carers complaints to be acknowledged instead of just being swept under the carpet.

Did Martin Bryant Fake-Kidnap Rick? "IndyWatch Feed National"

Sydney lawyers Glenn Pears and Zoe Hall, two of the victims of the 1996 Port Arthur massacre (photo credit  couriermail.com.au)

by Mary Maxwell, LLB

I am 100% persuaded that Martin Bryant had nothing to do with the Port Arthur massacre  on April 28, 1996. He says he was not there and he says it credibly. Someone else did the shooting in the Broad Arrow Caf. Several of the authorities must be aware of who did it, as it was a massive, complicated operation.

No doubt they chose Bryant in advance to be the patsy, maybe even years in advance. And most likely they lined up a few other Joe Schmoes to be the patsy in case Martin died.

Who Is the Main Witness for Martin Bryants Itinerary?

The person who is best placed to know where Martin went on April 28, 1996, is of course Martin himself. His memory could be compromised if he is of low brains but I doubt that he is. It could also be compromised as any of us can be compromised by someone maliciously altering his mind....

Accelerating rate of heat increasing in oceans, especially around Australia "IndyWatch Feed Nsw"

Concerning: Marine heatwaves increasing, especially near Australia, https://www.smh.com.au/environment/climate-change/marine-heatwaves-australia-tasman-sea-climate-20180410-p4z8qq.html, By Peter Hannam, 10 April 2018 

Marine heatwaves are increasing in their frequency and duration at an accelerating rate in many parts of the world, especially around Australia, a team of international scientists has found.

The number of oceanic heatwave days a year has increased by 54 per cent in the past century globally, the researchers determined, using data of sea-surface temperatures from long-established sites and satellites.

We have seen an increasing trend in the frequency and duration [of marine heatwaves], and that trend has accelerated in the past 30 years or so, said Lisa Alexander, associate professor at University of NSWs Climate Change Research Centre, and an author of the paper published in Nature Communications on Wednesday.

Rather than a precursor, the number of heatwave days may even be an underestimate of what is to come as the planet warms, Professor Alexander said. We could see it accelerated even more, given what weve seen recently, she said.

U-Turn? Trump proposes rejoining TPP agreement he left a year ago - now a better 'deal' "IndyWatch Feed National"

US President Donald Trump has ordered top administration officials to "negotiate entry" back into the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) agreement, the deal he pulled out of last year, describing it as a "horrible" one. The apparent U-turn in Donald Trump's stance on the agreement was announced by Republican senators, following a meeting at the White House on Thursday. The President instructed White House National Economic Council Director Larry Kudlow and US Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer to explore the options to re-join the deal. "The best thing the United States can do to push back against Chinese cheating now is to lead the other eleven Pacific nations that believe in free trade and the rule of law. It is good news that today the President directed Larry Kudlow and Ambassador Lighthizer to negotiate U.S. entry into TPP," Senator Ben Sasse (R-Nebraska) said in a statement. The US president said: "Larry, go get it done,"while instructing the official, Sasse told reporters. The TPP was a trade agreement between Australia, Brunei, Canada, Chile, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Peru, Singapore, Vietnam, and the United States, negotiated in the mid-2000s and signed in February 2016. It never entered force, as most signatories failed to ratify it in time.

Numerous Countries Have Now Banned WiFi & Cell Phones Around Small Children and Newborns "IndyWatch Feed National"

Information is constantly coming out in regards to the technology we use most. From our smartphones to our WiFi, and well everything else. That being said, these are things we do not often hear much about, why is that?

Did you know that radiofrequency electromagnetic fields RF/EMF are listed on the same list as things like chloroform, gasoline, and lead as class 2B carcinogens? Certain exposure levels can sometimes be harmful enough to literally cause cancer. Dont get me wrong, this is quite the controversial topic, but if you look at other countries and the way they look at cellphones and Wi-Fi you may not feel so conflicted.

For example, France passed a law back in 2015 that banned all Wi-Fi from nursery schools. This meaning it is not allowed, they even went so far as making it a law that in elementary schools when not in use Wi-Fi would need to be turned off. Wi-Fi has been removed for quite a few places in France including the French National Library.

There are laws in place for things like this in many different countries. Places like Spain, Belguim, Israel, Australia, India, and even Canada have enacted several different measures to reduce exposure to wireless radiation. These countries are cutting down for a reason, no one would go out of their way to reduce wireless radiation exposure without cause. Experimental research shows that chronic exposure to wireless actually reduces brain cells and can cause brain cell death in the memory and learning areas of the brain itself.

A study carried out back in 2011 actually found that just 50 minutes of using a wireless transmitting device near the brain would increase glucose in the area most closely exposed. It clearly has many negative effects on us and in the end will lead to something dreadful. These neurotoxic effects are nothing new, and they have been happening for some time now and are not going to be leaving anytime soon. If anything, we could see an increase in damage done with new and more innovative technologies being created as we speak.

There have been far more studies done on this kind of thing that you would think, but of course, you wont ever hear too much about them. Making sure we are educating ourselves and those around us is the best that can be done.

Alchemy Bellingen House of Devils and Bad Spirits "IndyWatch Feed National"

In our town, there is a healing centre called Alchemy. Its an alternative treatment and herbal medicine shop, house in a two-story building.
On the ground floor theres a reception, displays of alternate medicine products, a office, a couple of treatment rooms and a sauna and spa out in the external courtyard. On the second floor there are four treatment rooms.
A local lady friend of mine who is into Hindu meditation said she doesnt go to Alchemy because it has bad spirits and bad energy.
I agree with my friends perspective on Alchemy, but from a Christian point of view.
The practices at Alchemy are listed on its website.
Of the practices listed, Clairvoyant and Psychic Services and Energy Healings are demonic and should be shunned and avoided for personal spiritual and wholistic safety. The Holy Bible is very clear on this.
 Some of the other services offered are very dodgy spiritually too, but if youre not a Christian and not spiritually attuned that way, it will be hard to understand how and why this is.
Any strong Bible-Believing Christian will understand what Im writing.
Below is the home page for Alchemy Bellingen on-line.
Please be careful. Alchemy is not a good place spiritually or natural to go to.
Alchemy Bellingen should be shunned and avoided like the plague. The practices there are too demonic. As my friend said, There are bad spirits at Alchemy and I wont go there.

Leonie Martin Consulting - Is this another FACS Hitman? "IndyWatch Feed National"

Is it right for ex FACS workers who have been accused of being corrupt to be in business on their own providing psych assessments for FACS?

I visited Leonie Martin's website and sent the following message...

I have received reports in my group "Luke's Army" that you do fake psych reports for FACS giving them what they want to hear. You are an ex FACS worker are you not? Doesn't this make it even more susceptible to corruption with you being highly enlightened as to their dirty little tricks. Certainly those who spoke about you in the group gave you no credibility and blamed you for ruining their families. May I ask how much you are charging for a standard psych assessment for the department? How wealthy have you become riding on the back of this new stolen generation by FACS???

If you read the site, Leonie and her "Team" are based on the Mid North Coast of NSW.  Leonie is able to travel within NSW, Australia and overseas to provide services. Seems no family is too far away for her alleged fake psych reports.

Leonie Martin is a qualified Social Worker with substantial experience in the child protection and human services sector. Yes she is one of those repsponsible for the decimation of many families. Now she has moved onto bigger money. If these psychiatrists don't give FACS the reports they want, then FACS go elsewhere and the psych is set to lose out on a lot of money.

If you have had a fake psych report done by Leonie Martin please leave a comment below this blog.... Or if you have received a fake psych report from any FACS appointed psychiatrist.

The Kids In The System "IndyWatch Feed National"

Fight Child Protection Department Corruption: 
The pain of a child being abused is unbearable for them

The Kids In The System

From ABC NEWS
19th October 2017


Every day, Australias child protection workers face a heartbreaking and fraught decision: leave a child in a potentially dangerous family situation, or place them in foster care?

Taking them out of harms way might seem like the obvious option. But removing them can place them at risk in Australias child protection system, and can lead to long-term psychological damage to the child and other family members.

Removing children from their family of origin is a huge loss, even if that family of origin is abusive.

Helen Keevers, former child protection worker

Can you make the impossible choice?

The six cases below are real situations where child protection workers had to decide whether to remove a child from their family.

Make your choice, then see if the experts agree.

1. Jakob

You are asked to visit Amanda and her toddler Jakob by a childcare worker, who has concerns that Jakob is not meeting his developmental milestones. Amanda readily admits that she struggles to stay on top of her daily routine and to manage Jakobs behaviour. She gets welfare benefits but is behind on the rent at a public housing unit in the southern suburbs of Brisbane that she finds unfriendly and sometimes scary. She seems depressed and admits that she has been taking strong stimulants and anti-anxiety prescription drugs to help her through and sometimes feels like killing herself. Amanda says that some days she cant get out o...

Blockchain Platform Is on the Verge to Developing a Tokenized Sharing Economy "IndyWatch Feed National"

New research highlights that by the end of 2018, 66.3 mln people will use the sharing economy. Defined as an economic ecosystem where private entities share services and goods, studies predict that the industry will one day be valued at $1.93 tln. Ruled by sharing economy giants like Uber, AirBnB and Lyft, other companies are catching up on the growth potential of the new industry.

As young tech startups and industry giants fight for supremacy, others are looking at the sharing economy from a different perspective. By implementing Blockchain-powered solutions, it is now possible to share new types of assets, like storage capacity, computing powers, and more. The problem with the sharing economy is that theres no single platform to streamline access. Consumers have to sign up on multiple platforms to rent cars, book accommodation, or secure other goods and services.

To solve the issue of trust and improve transactional transparency, new Blockchain-based platform ShareRing is looking to become a disruptor of the sharing economy. By developing an all-in-one app, the project is looking to integrate existing sharing platforms (e.g. Uber, Lyft, Airbnb) into one interface. This way, users will be able to access sharing goods without dealing with multiple accounts.

Keaz technology at the core of ShareRing

The idea to create a single app for renting, borrowing and sharing assets first emerged about 4 years ago from the minds behind international car-sharing leader Keaz. At the time, technological limitations didnt allow the Keaz team to develop one app to provide universal access. Therefore, they focused on becoming the worlds first platform for sharing vehicles on a global scale.

Now, the team plans to use the perks of Blockchain technology to fill in the gaps and solve issues that were once holding back the sharing economy. With office across the United States, New Zealand, Hong Kong, Vietnam, and Australia, the technology that will backup the ShareRing platform is KeazACCESS API. Released back in 2015, KeazACCESS is d...

Alyssa Mae Fero was born on July 9, 2017, she died in suspicous circumstances in foster care on January 12 , 2018.

This week Legally Kidnapped and Luke's Army sat down and interviewed the mother of Alyssa Mae Fero and she gave an in depth explanation of what happened and how there are suspicious circumstances surrounding the death of her daughter in foster care.

In the interview Shavon described how she was devastated by the fact that a judge had ordered her daughter be returned, and how little Alyssa Mae had been neglected by her foster carer to the point of needing hospitalisation, which was refused by Child Protection Services (CPS).

Shavon also explains in the interview how money is needed to give Alyssa a proper burial, and to get a second opinion about the cause of her death, which grows harder each day her body is left lying in the morgue.

Help lay Alyssa May Fero to rest...

Shavon Davis-Fero has also started a facebook page in memory of Alyssa and to keep a documentary of the developments of the case which was supposed to have had the medical report for Alyssa back by now but is stalling for some reason. Please...

Messiah Udumbara: Europe, Eurozone, European Union Must Change or Exit "IndyWatch Feed National"

Source: Messiah Note

Europe, Eurozone, European Union Must Change or Exit


The Europe white races throughout history has conquered successfully America, Africa, Australia Pacific, but they lost in Asia. They did not lost to the Asia because of material physical, they lost because they were fighting in the most Spiritual Place on Earth, they were fighting against advanced beings from this & other worlds. The truth is hard but Europe must accept that.

Spirit World is miraculous & magical, many top groups/governments who had opportunity to verify their hidden history knew that. I am not talk about that subject for it mean nothing now on Earth.

The Current Old Money System cannot continue, the Euro cannot continue with that kind of gambling style controller. The new system based on real public assets & later land-backed must implemented as soon as possible. The Western has benefits too much from the Corrupt Money system already, it is not fair for people from low rate currency regions.

European Union is a great project but it is fail because lack of knowledge. One of the reason is because of the currency rate between each Nations. The other reason is subsidy money policy from this nation to that nation.

But now Europe is facing bigger problem which is called fake refugees, many of you already knew that problems, just like the same problem in the USA with smuggling Latino people.

The Cabal Deep State lost this battle again because White Europe people are the smart & with the support of their ancestors spirit.

Here is the suggestion for the EU:
Stop take any kind refugees, return all refugees taken from 2012 to the present back to their home country. Cut all kind of business & diplomat if their home country do not accept.

Stop subsidy money, welfare to all country & people. (by take money from one nation to give others)

Minimum Wage is set the same for all Nations, otherwise...

The Effect$ of Climate Change are Extensive and Profound, Now & Later "IndyWatch Feed National"

Climate Change Impacts to Increase with Time

What we face as the climate changes

Essay by S. Tom Bond, Retired Chemistry Professor & Resident Farmer, Lewis County, WV

Rising ocean level causes migration. There are many reasons areas just above sea level are densely inhabited, ports are there, broad expanses of tillable or easily developed land are there, and close contact with the ocean makes it possible for people living there in the past to enjoy bounty of both land and sea.

One of the worst affected areas in the U. S. is the area around Norfolk, Virginia, home to so many military bases that it has been called the worlds greatest collection of military might. It is sinking, as well as the ocean rising. Since 1927, the tidal gauge at Sewells Point has recorded the highest relative sea level rise on the East Coast, nearly 15 inches. Storms bring water into residential streets. The military is already taking steps to preserve the usefulness of the new construction, but has no plans for overall protection.

Another is the coast of Louisana which now is losing a football field of land (an acre) to the sea every hour, due to a combination of subsidence, sea-level rise and reduced sediment flow from the Mississippi River. Extraction of oil and gas and removal of salt deposits causes the sinking. Dams on the Mississippi prevent sediment from rebuilding the delta. Two thousands square miles have already been lost. The island where Tabasco Sauce has been manufactured for 150 years is threatened.

On the West Coast and elsewhere coastal marshes are threatened, which will allow storms to come in to human habitat and development.

Many low lying islands are increasingly uninhabitable. Kirbati Islands, an island chain halfway between Hawaii and Australia is looking to find a home for its 102,697 inhabitants. The Maldive Islands, to the West of India, has an average height of 51 inches above water, and is increasingly affected by storms. The Seychelles, also in the Indian Ocean has been a great tourist destination, great for scuba diving, but the beaches are being lost. The Solomon Islands of WWII fame are disappearing.
