Are you a Thug? "IndyWatch Feed Survival"

Found the following and thought many here might enjoy the article

Some people are thugs. As a practicing criminal defense attorney, I sometimes get to meet and talk with thugs.[1] Most of the thugs I represent know they are thugs, and some of them are even proud to be thugs. Most people dont think of themselves as thugs. This is because most thugs dont realize they are thugs. As with most things, the first...

Thoughts For The Week. Battle for the Mind. Gun Control. "IndyWatch Feed Survival"

Keith's image choice.


Thoughts For The Week.

Battle for the Mind.

In his essay Politics and the English Language, George Orwell observes that political language serves to distort and obscure reality. Orwells description of political speech in 1940 was prophecy he used the words doublespeak, Newspeak and doublethink words that define our 21st century political information.

Orwell said political language can be designed to make lies sound truthful and murder respectable, and to give an appearance of solidity to pure wind.

The current issues we are confronted with every day are filled with doublethink and doublespeak we have to investigate, sift, and research in our quest for reality.

What is really important to the social engineers that form our New World of doublespeak is the ability to lie, whether knowingly or unconsciously, and to get away with it; and the ability to use lies and choose and shape facts selectively, blocking out those that dont fit with their agenda or program.

The purpose of propaganda is to narrow and limit human consciousness, confuse human conscience, and control and narrow the range of thinking. As all students of Orwellian literature will recall, Squealer, the propagandist porker in Animal Farm, can turn black into white and is expert in new belief.

Examples of the structural nature of the use of doublespeak have been made by modern scholars. Noam Chomsky argues in Manufacturing Consent, The Political Economy of the Mass Media that people in modern society consist of decision-makers and social participants who have to be made to agree. According to Chomsky, the media and public relations industry actively shape public opinion, working to present messages in line with their economic agenda for the purposes of controlling of the public mind.

When the state loses the bludgeon, when you cant control people by force and when the voice of the people can be heard, you have to control what people think. And the standard way to do this is to resort to what in more honest days used to be called propaganda. designed to make lies sound truthful and murder respectable, and to give an app...

How to communicate when cell towers are down? "IndyWatch Feed Survival"

We are a group of engineers who used to work in Motorola and Honeywell.

Globalist Strategy: Use Crazy Leftists And Provocateurs To Enrage/Demonize Conservatives "IndyWatch Feed Survival"

This article was originally published by Brandon Smith of Alt-Market.com

war-left-right

The false left/right paradigm is an often misunderstood concept. Many people who are aware of it sometimes wrongly assume that it asserts the claim that there is no left or right political spectrum; that it is all a farce. This is incorrect. In regular society there is indeed a political spectrum among the general populace from socialism/communism/big government (left) to conservatism/free markets/individualism/small government (right). Each citizen sits somewhere on the scale between these two dynamics. The left/right spectrum is in fact real for the average person.

We do not find a false paradigm until we examine the beliefs and behaviors of the elitist and political classes. For many banking oligarchs and high level politicians, there is no loyalty to a particular political party or an identifiable left or right ideology. Many of these people are happy to exploit both sides of the spectrum, if they can, to achieve the goals of globalism; a separate ideology that doesnt really serve the interests of groups on the left or the right. That is to say, globalists pretend as if they care about one side or the other on occasion, but in truth they could not care less about the success of either. They only care about the success of their own exclusive elitist club.

This reality also tends to apply to national loyalty as well. Globalists do not carry any ideological love for any particular nation or culture. They are more than happy to sacrifice and sabotage a country if the action will gain them greater power or centralization in return. A globalist is only Democrat or Republican, or American or Russian or Chinese or European, etc., insofar as the label gets them something that they want.

The reason globalists and the people that work for them adopt certain labels is because through this they can act as gatekeepers and better manipulate the masses. The hot button issue of the week provides us with a case in point

The organizer of the Unite The Right group during the Charlottesville circus, which ended in one death and numerous injured, happened to be an ideological playmate of the extreme left only a year ago....

Freedom of speech does not mean freedom without consequence for those who exercise that freedom. "IndyWatch Feed Survival"

Much hand wringing and angst has been expressed with regard to negative consequences being experienced by some of those who were active participants of the Charlottsville VA protests (and elsewhere). I think that George Takei expressed the issue of 'freedom of speech' quite well.

Let me try to clear something up. "Freedom of speech" does not mean you get to say whatever you want without consequences. It simply means the government can't stop you from saying it. It also means OTHERS...

United Nations Issues Rare Early Warning Signals Potential Civil Conflict In America "IndyWatch Feed Survival"

This report was originally published by Tyler Durden at ZeroHedge.com

A United Nations Committee tasked with combating racism on a global scale has issued an ultra rare early warning for the United States citing alarming racism trends.

As StockBoardAsset.com notes, this rare signal often preludes the potential for civil conflict.

In the past 10-years, the early warning has been issued in Burundi, Iraq, Ivory Coast, Kyrgyzstan and Nigeria.

The United Nations Committee on the Eliminations of Racial Discrimination has called on high-level politicians and public officials of the United States to condemn racist hate speech and crimes in Charlottesville and through the country.

Anastasia Crickley, Chairperson of UN Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination (CERD) said:

We are alarmed by the racist demonstrations, with overtly racist slogans, chants and salutes by white nationalists, neo-Nazis, and the Ku Klux Klan, promoting white supremacy and inciting racial discrimination and hatred

As per UN News Centre:

More Firearms Restrictions! Further Licensing Issues Police Policy "IndyWatch Feed Survival"


Property Letters
We are encountering issues regarding property letter sizes.  Specifically, a change in policy within Police Licensing Services (PLS) on what are adequate property sizes for certain calibre firearms.  A client recently had a firearms license application refused for a shotgun on 6 acres.

The PLS maintain they have a duty of care and responsibility to ensure license applicants have access to a property to safely shoot a firearm on.  Property size has a large part to do with this.  They do this by applying arbitrary rules, that do not exist in legislation, to decide whether or not a certain license application should be granted.  PLS will not officially release these figures.  Subsequently, acceptable property sizes change periodically without consultation with the industry or even a warning.

These changes make it particularly hard for firearm dealers to advise clients on suitable firearms for their requirements.  While a certain caliber would be needed to humanely kill certain pests or to engage in a certain style of recreational shooting, there is no certainty that PLS will approve that caliber.  This results in license applications being refused, when similar applications were granted only weeks prior.  Firearm Dealers and license applicants lose money and considerable time is needlessly wasted.  The Police Licensing Services claim to assess applications individually and consider other factors we do not accept this.  Our experience is that little other than property size is considered by assessors in the application process.  License applicants are usually forced to fight to get applications approved, often explaining relatively simple realities of pest eradication to assessors with seemingly little training.

Whos Hacking Our Ships? US Navy Suspects USS McCain Collision Was Caused By Cyber Attack "IndyWatch Feed Survival"

uss-mccain

Tragedy struck the USS John S. McCain on Monday, when the destroyer collided with a merchant ship off the coast of Singapore, leaving 10 sailors missing and five injured. The US Navy is still struggling to find all of the remains of the missing sailors, and has ordered an operational pause for all naval fleets around the world as investigators try to figure out exactly why this terrible accident occurred.

Among the possible causes that are being looked into, one has a raised a few eyebrows. Over the summer there have been two accidental collisions involving the 7th fleet, and a total of 4 similar incidents this year. This has led some Navy officials to suspect that a cyber attack may have been responsible for the crash, as well as other recent Naval accidents.

The Navy has not ruled out an intentional action behind the latest deadly collision between a Navy destroyer and a merchant ship, the chief of naval operations told reporters Monday.

Thats is certainly something we are giving full consideration to but we have no indication that thats the caseyet, Adm. John Richardson, the CNO, said at the Pentagon.

But were looking at every possibility, so were not leaving anything to chance, he said.

Asked if that includes the possibility the electronic defenses on the guided missile destroyer USS John S. McCain were hacked in a cyber attack, Richardson said investigators will look into all possible causes.

Well take a look at all of that, as we did with the Fitzgerald, the four-star admiral said, referring to another Navy warship collision with a merchant ship in June near Japan.

So far the Navy has made it clear that there currently isnt any evidence that the neither USS McCain, nor any other naval vessel, has suffered from a cyber attack. However, there are quite a few top notch cyber security experts who think that all of these collisions probably have something in common.

Theres something more than just human error going on because th...

Activists Seek Peace Through Violence: CNN Quickly Scrubs Title Of Antifa Puff Peace "IndyWatch Feed Survival"

riots1

How did we reach a point in our society, where groups like Antifa think nothing of wreaking havoc on the streets on a regular basis? These people routinely beat those they disagree with, cause property damage, and shut down dissent without a single iota of shame. You have to ask yourself, how did this group and others like it, get so bold as to think that they can flippantly disregard the law and openly riot in the streets?

The answer is that the media is responsible for this mess. Its the media that has repeatedly ignored, apologized for, and even celebrated their actions. How else would these thugs have come to the conclusion that what theyre doing is okay? Theyre constantly being lionized by our morally bankrupt media.

CNN made that perfectly clear last week. They published a piece that was highly sympathetic to Antifa titled Unmasking the Leftist Antifa Movement: Activists Seek Peace Through Violence.

This past weekend CNN drew more criticism for its left-wing bias after posting a profile on the violent left-wing group Antifa, that rather generously described the communist group as seeking peace through violence. Despite the obvious contradiction in terms, at least the headline noted the groups violent motives (albeit in a really stupid way.) But that phrase was scrubbed just hours later by CNN in an apparent move to not offend members of the radical-left group.

The original article appeared online Friday afternoon, with the headline: Unmasking the Leftist Antifa Movement: Activists Seek Peace Through Violence. That one mention of violence in the headline was the only real objective criticism CNNs Sara Ganim and Chris Welch had to offer throughout their lengthy piece, interviewing several self-identified Antifa activists

If this was a radical, violent right-wing group, its a given that CNN would have plenty of left-wing groups on hand to denounce their ideologies and behavior. When the groups violent methods were finally first brought up in the article, CNN justifies the violence as a means to an end, because, the antifa members say, theyre committing violence to e...

Watch These Leftists Admit They Prefer Venezuelas Abject Poverty To Americas Wealth Inequality "IndyWatch Feed Survival"

venezuela-socialism

The concepts of fairness and equality should be viewed as a duel edged sword. On the one hand, these values teach us to give everyone a fair shake, which certainly makes for a more stable society. But on the other hand, when these values are held above all else, the results are nightmarish. You see those consequences take form in every socialist country.

This is precisely the problem with the Left in our country. They think that equality is the most important value. When they look at a problem like the vast wealth inequality gap between the rich and the poor in this country, they think the best possible solution is to make everyone equal. But if you think they want to bring about more equality by making the poor richer, youd be sorely mistaken. More often then not, theyre more than willing to make us all equally poor.

That may sound ridiculous at first. After all, youd think that even rank and file socialists arent aware of the fact that their ideology makes people poor, because anyone who knew that would surely abandon this ideology. They dont really think that it would be better for us all to be poor rather than live in an unequal society, right?

Unfortunately thats not the case. Conservative commenter Ami Horowitz recently interviewed several people in New Yorks East village, and explained to them how Venezuelan socialism is causing misery, violence, and poverty, and asked them if they would prefer that to the wealth inequality of the United States. Their responses were just as shocking and dumb as you can imagine.

Significance of SEO in the competitive corporate world "IndyWatch Feed Survival"

Nowadays, when the market is overflowed with many enterprises it has become crucial to stand out among completion and reach to the general audience by using benefits of advertising. Using services of search engine optimization has become inevitable in the business world. SEO will provide you with more targeted advertising. After all, it is easier to reach potential clients who are already looking for products or services you are selling. For example, it is more likely that those individuals, who are searching on Google, will make a purchase in comparison to those on Facebook.

Potential customers will use search engines such as Google to find what are they searching for. Therefore, if you are not using services of Houston SEO company, your enterprise will not be visible in search results. And, what is the point of a website if it cant be found on the internet?

More about SEO

People usually think that process of search engine optimization is expensive and complex. But Google has made it simpler for local enterprises, so it is quite easier than you probably think to get the higher position in search results in your town or state. And if you are not planning to compete nationwide, you will not have to spend a huge amount on hiring services of SEOS Houston.

Also, it is important to note that SEO is not narrowed to just one search engine. Most people link SEO with Google, but the thing is that it can work on Facebook, YouTube, and other search engines as they rank contents as well as Google or Bing. It is significant that you optimize a content of yours similarly so it can be ranked higher on these sites.

As technology advances, it has become easy and effortless for an individual to look for pieces of information he is interested in from mobile device regardless of place and time. Search is continuing to grow as potential customers use search engines to find a certain business instead of a phone book as it was the case in past times.

Report: MASS EXTINCTION Event Now Under Way That Will Decimate The Global Human Population "IndyWatch Feed Survival"

This report was originally published by Mike Adams at NaturalNews.com

earth-cracks

A hotly-debated study led by Professor Gerardo Ceballos at the Universidad Nacional Autonoma de Mexicowarns that the human population explosion is leading to the widespread contamination and destruction of the planet, ultimately collapsing life support systems upon which human civilization depends. As reported by The Times of Israel:

Human overpopulation and over-consumption are leading Earth to its sixth mass extinction faster than was previously thought, with the human race likely to be eradicated along the way, a new study warns

These findings indicate nothing short of biological annihilation, the scientists conclude, a massive anthropogenic [human-driven] erosion of biodiversity and of the ecosystem services essential to civilization.

The study was published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences and was co-authored by Paul R. Ehrlich, a population control advocate.

Adding to the controversy of the study, Paul Ehrlichs views have also been cited by population control advocates like Bill Gates, who calls for an engineered depopulation of the planet in order to achieve long-term sustainability. Bill Gates has donated millions of dollars to infertility technologies and vaccine innovations that include vaccines in Africa being covertly laced with infertility chemicals to achieve a race-based medical cleansing / genocide by making sure black people dont reproduce.

To some, the warnings of Paul Ehrlich echo the hysteria of globalists like Al Gore, who claims that climate change, not chemical poisoning of the planet, will destroy human civilization unless everybody agrees to...

Read The Memo That Rocked Washington And Exposed The Deep State Plot Against President Trump "IndyWatch Feed Survival"

This report was originally published by Susan Duclos at All News Pipeline

The memo is embedded in full below, so readers can read the seven-page memorandum produced in May by the former director of strategic planning at the National Security Council, Rich Higgins.

Before we detail some of the highlights from the memo, then offer the document in full, lets take a look at Higgins credentials, the man that the media is doing their best to discredit with labels like nutcase (MediaIte) with outlets like Washington Post calling the memo itself crazy.

Not only was Higgins the the former director of strategic planning for the NSC, before being fired by Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster for writing the memorandum, but perhaps more impressive, the Army veteran was also a former Pentagon official who specialized in irregular warfare.

Department of Defense defines Irregular Warfare in a 100 page document from 2007, in the following manner:

Irregular warfare (IW) is defined as a violent struggle among state and nonstate actors for legitimacy and influence over the relevant populations. IW favors indirect and asymmetric approaches, though it may employ the full range of military and other capabilities, in order to erode an adversarys power, influence, and will. It is inherently a protracted struggle that will test the resolve of our Nation and our strategic partners.

Our adversaries will pursue IW strategies, employing a hybrid of irregular, disruptive, traditional, and catastrophiccapabilities to undermine and erode the influence and will of the United States and our strategic partners. Meeting these challenges...

Several days before he left the White House, Steve Bannon did a pretty good job of explaining why going to war with North Korea would be such a bad idea. Until somebody solves the part of the equation that shows me that 10 million people in Seoul dont die in the first 30 minutes from conventional weapons, I dont know what youre talking about, theres no military solution here, they got us.

At the end of the day there may be only one thing we can do, and that is nothing. We can simply keep a lid on the country until it collapses, or until the population decides that theyve had enough, and tries to change or reform the regime.

The latter of those possibilities may be more plausible than you think. While most people in America assume that North Koreans are hopelessly brainwashed into submission, thats not true at all. As it turns out, theres a sign that the starving and brutalized masses of North Korea are growing increasingly restless and disillusioned with their government. Theyre turning to religion in growing numbers, and in defiance of their brutal regime. For instance, according to a U.S. State Department report, the number of Christians in North Korea has increased five-fold over the past five years, to somewhere between 200,000 and 400,000 people.

The State Department, which gleaned the Christian population figures from data maintained by the United Nations and the Cornerstone Ministries International (CMI), acknowledged the number of Christians in North Korea may be higher.

State learned from CMI that an estimated 10-45 percent of people imprisoned in North Koreans detention camps are Christians.

An estimated 80,000 to 120,000 political...

25 Forgotten Homesteading Skills The Pioneers Mastered "IndyWatch Feed Survival"

Pioneer life has a special meaning in America. In less than 300 years, civilization spread across a vast continental wilderness.

From the first landings in Virginia and Massachusetts in the early 1600s, American settlers kept pushing westward behind an ever moving frontier. Into wild country went hunters, trappers, fur traders, miners, frontier soldiers, surveyors, and pioneer farmers. The farmers tamed the land and made it productive.

Every part of America had its pioneers. Whatever their surroundings, the pioneers had to depend on themselves and on the land. Self-reliance was a frontier requirement. Game provided food and leather clothing. New settlers gathered wild fruits, nuts, and berries. For salt they boiled the water of saline springs. Maple sugar was made by tapping maple trees in early spring and boiling the sap until it thickened into a tasty sweetening. Substitutes for tea and coffee were provided by boiling sassafras root and brewing parched corn and barley. With an ax and adze for cutting tools, the pioneers made beds, tables, benches, and stools. They split logs into rails to make the zigzag fence that enclosed their clearings.

25 Forgotten Homesteading Skills The Pioneers Mastered

Soap Making

The pioneers used to make soap themselves using the copious amount of wood ashes, a natural result of their homesteading activities, with also a plentiful supply of animal fat from the butchering of the animals they used for food. Soap with some work and luck could be made for free. Soap making was performed as a yearly or semiannual event on the homesteads of the early settlers. As the butchering of animals took place in the fall, soap was made at that time on many homesteads and farms to utilize the large supply of tallow and lard that resulted. On the homes or farms where butchering was not done, soap was generally made in the spring using the ashes from the winter fires and the waste cooking grease, that had accumulated throughout the year. Soap making takes three basic steps.

  1. Making of the wood ash lye.
  2. Rendering or cleaning the fats.
  3. Mixing the fats and lye solution together and boiling the mixture to make the soap.

Blackout: How You Can Act Decisively If an EMP Strikes at Work "IndyWatch Feed Survival"

[Editors Note: One thing is for certain if an EMP occurs while many of us are away at work, the city quickly can become a death trap. As writer, Jeremiah Johnson warns, Definitive action taken at the critical point is critical to your survival. Having a plan in place and supplies will give you that critical edge you need to survive.]

 

ReadyNutrition Readers, this is Part 2 of a 3-part series dealing with immediate actions to be taken in the event of an EMP (Electromagnetic Pulse) attack.  You can read Part 1 here. In the last segment, we covered what you should do if youre on the road heading to or from work, or traveling.  Now we are going to detail some actions and preparations for your workplace.  Keep in mind: there will be a blending of these parts in actual practice, as to move from one locale to another, you will use the information presented in Part 1 when traveling.  All the parts should complement one another.

I also think it would be a good idea to take listed items and burn off an extra copy as a form of a checklist, as not many people have perfect memories (myself included), and it could help you out in the time of trouble and eliminate the need for guesswork.  Lets start off with a scenario.

Lets start off with a scenario.

You are an office worker in Anytown, a small midwestern city who works in a 7-story building located on the eastern 1/3 of the town.  The direction of your home from work is toward the East.  You are sitting at your desk with a window facing the west, and its about 10:00 am.  Suddenly, a flash of light catches your attention in the sky, and then it disappears.  Simultaneously, all the lights in the office go out, as does your desk computer.  No backup lights come on.  You look at your watch, and its dead.  You pick up your desk phone, and there is no dial tone.  There are murmurings from coworkers, and people are shuffling into an open area with a conference table.  You have just been hit by an EMP attack, and it appears that you have already punched out early, and probably for good.

The scenario will be played out throughout the United States.  Now is the time to act. Those who are preparedness minded must keep th...

Richard Duarte Shares His Top Tips for Urban Survival

Richard Duarte urban survival Expert

Richard Duarte is a practicing attorney in South Florida who was inspired to adopt the preparedness lifestyle after surviving Hurricane Andrew in August 1992. He consults, writes and lectures on urban survival and disaster planning. Duarte is also a big firearms enthusiast and a strong proponent of the Second Amendment. His books include Surviving Doomsday A Guide for Surviving an Urban Disaster, The Quick Start Guide for Urban Survival.

What was the motivation for the Quick Start Guide for Urban Survival?

To answer this question I need to back up a bit. In 2012, I wrote Surviving Doomsday A Guide for Surviving an Urban Disaster. I purposely kept the book short, 180 pages, and devoted a chapter to each of the survival basics.

Over the next two years, people kept telling me that they really wanted to get prepared, but they just didnt have the time to sit and do a lot of reading. Initially, I was frustrated by this. My primary goal is to reach as many people as possible and to help get them prepared. However, I also understand that people are busier than ever.

One day, it occurred to me that just about every product we buy comes with an owners manual and a quick start guide, sin...

Video Shows Chinese And Indian Soldiers Brawling Over Disputed Territory With Rocks And Pipes "IndyWatch Feed Survival"

chinese-troops

When the Chinese state-run media suggested that their country was two weeks away from possibly going to war with India earlier this month, they probably werent expecting a childish brawl between their armies, but thats exactly what happened a few days ago. Footage of a scuffle between Chinese and Indian soldiers in the disputed Ladakh region of Northern India has surfaced, and spread far and wide on social media. It shows the soldiers beating and grappling with each other. Some accounts have suggested that the Chinese soldiers carried rocks and iron rods.

Initial reports claimed that the Chinese forces were the aggressors, and the Indian border guards had repelled them. However, now both governments are pretending that the incident never occurred. India has refused to confirm or deny that the brawl took place, and Chinese officials are flat out denying it.

According to PTI, China said that it was not aware of reports of PLA soldiers entering Indian territory and said it is committed to peace and tranquillity along the border. Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Hu Chunying said, I am not aware of the information. She said the Peoples Liberation Army (PLA) troops always patrol along the Chinese side of the Line of Actual Control (LAC).We urge the Indian side abide by the LAC and relevant conventions between the two sides, she added.

Theres a very good reason for that response. As ridiculous as this incident may appear, it also represents a dire threat. Wars have been st...

When The Left Eats Its Own: Watch ANTIFA Thug Punch BLM Member "IndyWatch Feed Survival"

Much of the ugliness we see on the Left today is embodied in groups like Black Lives Matter and ANTIFA. Both groups think they are oppressed, both are obsessed with identity politics, and both are steeped in Marxist ideologies. Youd think that they would get along just fine but thats not the case. People who have their identities wrapped up in victimhood are narcissistic by nature. They want the spotlight at all times, and cant stand to see someone else hog it. So it was probably just a matter of time before these two groups clashed.

At a recent protest a member of BLM confronted an ANTIFA member, and challenged him to take off his mask. The crowd of ANTIFA supporters began chanting Hes a cop! at the black man. It wasnt long before the masked ANTIFA thug got in his face, and threw a punch.

In the Left there is always ongoing competition between different minorities, sexual identities, and political groups who feel that they are more aggrieved than anyone else, and thus more worthy of public attention and sympathy. It may not look like it at first glance, but what you just witnessed was a fight between two of those groups over who deserves the spotlight. It was only a matter of time before the Left started to eat its own.

Ron Paul Warns 50% Stock Market Plunge Conceivable And It Wont Be Trumps Fault "IndyWatch Feed Survival"

This report was originally published by Tyler Durden at ZeroHedge.com

ron-paul-money

The former Republican Congressman from Texas believes escalating dysfunction in Washington will create even more pain for Wall Street.

Speaking on CNBCs Futures Now, Ron Paul warned:

A 50 percent pullback is conceivableI dont believe its ten years off. I dont even believe its a year off.

Paul noted that theres a lot of chaos in Washington right now, with an unpredictable president and those who are inclined to tear him apart but if the market takes that big of a tumble, he doesnt see it as Trumps fault.

Its all man-made. Its not the fault of Donald Trump in the last week.

If the market crashes tomorrow and we have a great depression, he didnt do it in six months.

It took more like six or ten years to cause all these problems that were facing.

Paul previously argued Wall Street is overestimating the strength of the economy, and the Federal Reserve kept interest rates too low for too long.

He said the situation for stocks could turn ugly as soon as October.

I see the foundation of our system built on sand, and a big wind comes along to blow it down.

Is The President Mentally And Emotionally Stable? New Bill Would Require Trump To Undergo Mental Health Evaluation "IndyWatch Feed Survival"

trump-pointing1

Back in February it was reported by Zero Hedge that Democrats would soon act to remove President Trump under the 25th Amendment, which states in part that a President can be replaced should he be unable to discharge his powers and duties. Such an action would require a vote from the Presidents cabinet, but could also be initiated by Congress.

As of today, Trumps opponents are now actively pursuing this strategy. Asking whether the President has early stage dementia, or whether he is mentally and emotionally stable, Congressional Representative Zoe Lofgren (D-CA) introduced legislation that would force the President to submit to a psychological evaluation.

Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-Calif.) introduced the bill on Friday. Should the results of the said exam be unfavorable, the bill calls for Vice President Mike Pence and members of the Cabinet to remove Trump from office.

The move would invoke the 25th Amendment, a rarely-used constitutional provision that allows the vice president and a majority of Cabinet members to jointly remove the president from office and replace him with the vice president.

Does the President suffer from early stage dementia, Lofgren asked in a statement announcing the bill.

Has emotional disorder so impaired the President that he is unable to discharge his duties, she continued. Is the President mentally and emotionally stable?

Lofgren pointed out that Trump has...

Make every effort to clean the beds of your garden before you start planting. Clear it of weeds, plants, fallen fruit, and debris. This is to prevent insects and fungus growth. If youve just planted peppers or tomatoes or other plants, it is best you add more nutrients in the soil. This is vital if youre replanting on the same garden bed. You could add plenty of aged manure or compost as you till the beds in order to make any future crop to flourish.
