BlackBerry another dodgy corporation defrauding customers and shareholders "IndyWatch Feed National"


When you mention the BlackBerry brand name to people apart from a common response of "are they still around?", it could conjure up thoughts of secure communications of yesteryear.

After all the POTUS (President Of The United States), Barack Obama had one, so it's got to be secure right?


EVEN in the colony called Australia, MPs were issued BlackBerrys where the phones were work-centric with security policies in action.

This had the unfortunate effect of hindering the politicians from playing games and social media distractions during business hours of course, where Apple and Google based operating system phones were installed in order to support the 'needs' of the politicians, to the dismay of the IT support crowd who actually knew a thing or two about security.

Once upon a time RIM (Research In Motion) founded by a Greek engineer Michael Lazaridis,  later becoming BlackBerry was king of the mobile telecommunications world due to new technology enabling email to its mobile devices via proprietary communications which were even operational during a mobile network blackout which proved invaluable to its users during certain scenarios. 

Let's just forget the 4 day global BlackBerry outage where RIM lost $54 million, oops!

Predator priests abused more than 1,000 children in Pennsylvania

PREDATOR priests weaponised victims faith to groom, abuse and rape more than a thousand children over decades in the US state of Pennsylvania, a grand jury investigation has found.

An 884-page report detailed horrors including a priest who tied up a victim with rope in the praying position and then sexually assaulted him with a seven-inch crucifix.

At one rectory, four priests made a boy strip and pose as Jesus on the cross while they took photos. Altar boys were told to serve naked beneath their cassocks as God did not want any man-made clothes during Mass, while a seven-year-old gang-rape victim who went to a priest for help was...

Why I Believe This Situation With My Dogs Is a Set Up "IndyWatch Feed National"

This was the anonymous complaint made against my dogs:

Yet the Sherriffs dept told me they had never recieved even ONE complaint about my dogs. EVER.

I dont leave my windows open when I am not here due to the break ins I have had. And I dont let them obsessively bark when I AM here. And this complaint was obviously done in August- and since I have had my air conditioner running all summer- logic would dictate that my windows arent open.

I am NOT saying my dogs dont bark. They are dogs and dogs bark- but since my neighbors have all said they rarely hear them- and I live on a dead end street DIRECTLY beside the highway- this anonymous complaint is a lie.

My dogs are NEVER outside without me as someone has tried to poison them twice. The first time was directly preceeded from an email from Doug Mesner who claimed he could do to my dogs whatever he wanted. The Sheriff HAS that email.

And I wont let them bark outside as I usher them in immediately if they do, as they are never outside without me.

In Earling dogs run all over town freely. Mine never have- as I had a 5 ft chain link fence built the day after I moved here.

And as far as problems with other dogs in town- one of the city councils dog bit his neighbors dog, which required stitches.

And the next door neighbor to the city manager- their dog has bit TWO PEOPLE.

Did they loose their dogs? NO- they didnt.

Mine are incredibly loving and gentle- as my neighbors said in their letters. And quiet and well maintained.

And this city attorney- who the Des Moines Register had QUITE the write up about in their watch dog report- has never met me NOR my dogs. But the city manager has- DOZENS of times. She knows EXACTLY what they are like- and what I am like with them.

https://www.desmoinesregister.com/story/news/investigations/readers-watchdog/2015/02/13/readers-watchdog-avoca-fichter/23389525/

There is a nefarious reason behind all of this. The secrecy surrounding it- not letting me speak at the city council (although the entire town knows all about it- probably because many read my blog and the whole town ta...

Clerical child abuse in Pennsylvania, USA "IndyWatch Feed National"

This 15 August 2018 video from the USA says about itself:

Bombshell Report Exposes Catholic Priest Pedophile Ring

Will these victims ever receive justice? Ana Kasparian and Brett Erlich hosts of The Young Turks, break it down.

Pennsylvania grand jury report spanning over 1,300 pages was released on Tuesday, detailing various sexual abuses that occurred in six Pennsylvania dioceses, including one instance in which a priest received a letter of reference for a job at Walt Disney World after he quit following abuse claims.

The report included abuse charges against Father Edward George Ganster, who began his career with the church in 1971 as an assistant pastor at the Notre Dame of Bethlehem Church in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. In 2002, a victim who was then age 37 contacted the diocese and said that when he was a 14-year-old altar boy at St. Joseph in Frackville, Pennsylvania, Ganster fondled and groped him. On one occasion, Ganster dragged the boy across a living room floor, pulling him by the underwear. Ganster also beat the victim repeatedly, once using a metal cross, the report states. The abuse at the hands of Ganster lasted for over one-and-a-half years and all happened in St. Josephs Rectory.

Tracking the Exchange Rate of my Trust "IndyWatch Feed National"

In the winter of New Delhi, the birds of prey drew imaginary circles below the smog; they wouldnt be seeing blue for a long time. The buildings that surrounded my hotel were hungover, power lines strewn over their stocky bodies like streamers at the end of a party. The horizon was heavy and vast, the streets siphoned activity from block to block with the incessant howling of horns and growling engines.

I never got truly acquainted with Indias capital, but the hotel bathroom and I were inseparable. They dont call it Delhi Belly for nothing. But much like toilet paper, the rupees in my money-belt were dwindling; it was time to step outside and find an ATM.

I must admit I was nervous: watching Indias Daughter wasnt the smartest move for getting pumped up to travel this part of the world. I had only just left the building when I encountered the familiar feeling of being followed. From my peripherals I spotted the rickshaw driver. He was barely crawling as he gestured to me with big waving hands.

Imagining cartoon dollar signs in place of his eyes, I changed my pace from dehydrated-and-fatigued to hurry-up-before-you-shit-your-pants. But the longer I ignored him, the more he persisted. This carried on for some time, until I realised that I had no idea where I was going.

It was in that moment the feeling seized my gut.

Get in the rickshaw, it told me.

My gut and I were on good speaking terms and it has proved me right before, so I did. I stepped in, shouting the word ATM like a tourist. When I confirmed that he had put the meter on, I settled into writing my own eulogy in the back seat. A minute later, he pulled up by an ATM around the corner, waiting patiently as I refuelled my wallet and faith in humanity.

The hotel in sight, I was touched by the fact he hadnt ripped me off, so prepared some extra notes as a tip. But when he pulled up by my hotel, he shook his head in refusal.

No money, he insisted.

Me, the classic foreigner, assumed that he didnt understand and continued to do the awkward take my money dance. It was useless. I ended up saying denyavada too many times (the word for thank-you in the wrong dialect) and left. I cant remember what he looks like now, but he taught me that not all strange men are advantageous.

In a new story by George Knapp and Matt Adams, dated 28 June 2018, titled "I-Team exclusive: Nevada Senator fought to save secret UFO program," the authors reveal that they possess a copy of a 2009 document, sent by former Senator Harry Reid, to the Department of Defense, in which Senator "Reid made the case for protecting and expanding the project."

"The letter is not classified but a footnote says it is exempt from disclosure under FOIA because of what it contains...Only 14 people were copied, all of them with security clearances."

John Greenewald of the Black Vault website, mentioned this letter in his ongoing case file on the AATIP.

The Big Switch



Source: Paul Stramer | By Anna Von Reitz

So how did your nationality get combined with citizenship? A friend from Australia recently sent me a nicely summarized list of legislative acts from the 1920 through the late 60's, and what it very neatly summarizes is a fundamental change that happened in the 1940's and which has never been corrected.

At the beginning of the legislative history there were numerous "Nationality Acts" in the 1920's and 30's. Then, beginning in the 1940's all of these became "Nationality and Citizenship Acts". This is where your nationality got confused and "lumped together" with your political status as a "citizen" or not.

The organizations passing all these "Nationality and Citizenship Acts" were all functioning in Territorial jurisdictions, so it was no big leap for them to include "citizenship" presumptions with the topic of "nationality". For them, the two are synonymous.

If you live your life as a "resident" (temporary sojourner) in the "State of Wyoming" (a Territorial State of State) you are a federal "citizen" by definition, so that your nationality and citizenship are tied together.

If you live your life at home in Wyoming, you may or may not be a "citizen". It is entirely possible to live your entire life and never be employed by any "federally connected" employer and to never hold any office related to any federal corporation.

And that is the fundamental difference between "us" and "THEM".

We have no natural obligation to serve and obey the government. The government has a natural obligation to serve and obey us. Our nationality is not tied to any obligatory citizenship, but theirs is. And therein lies the rub and the misunderstanding.

Public land being sold under market value "IndyWatch Feed National"

The sale of public land significantly under its market value in Woy Woy on the central coast by the NSW coalition government in 2015 has outraged the local community and led to questions about the ethics around the continuing sale of public land by the government.

Greens MP David Shoebridge has referred the sale of prime waterfront land in Woy Woy to ICAC saying the sale raises grave concerns about the integrity of the remainder of the $9 billion plus of public lands sales that have occurred under the NSW coalition government.

It is understood that the land sale was negotiated behind closed doors without going to market. Once the deal was done the proposed sale was only advertised in a distant newspaper in Batemans Bay, a five hour drive from the site, in breach of legal requirements under the Crown Lands Act.

The Act requires that the sale of public land is advertised either in a state wide newspaper or in a newspaper with prominent circulation in the area where the land is being sold said Mr Shoebridge.

This was prime waterfront land on the Central Coast, but its proposed sale was only notified in a small, regional newspaper based in Batemans Bay, said Mr Shoebridge.

The prime public waterfront land on the NSW Central Coast was sold in 2015 for just $38,000, significantly below its real value, and despite internal valuations suggesting a sale price should be at least $120,000.

According to the ABC residents started asking questions about the sale shortly after the development application was lodged for a four-story apartment block for seniors on the site which also includes the local bowling club and sits at the edge of the waterfront with a playground, bike track and walking path.

This governments multi-billion dollar fire sale of public land has robbed New South Wales residents of public assets and a fair return, said Mr Shoebridge.

From the outset this was a contentious proposal that has seen a much loved local bowling club being sold off for development. For many residents of the area to then be excluded from even basic notification is an added insult.

Firstly, this is clearly a gross underpayment for the site and secondly, it is a gross breach of notification requirements.

It is quite literally unbelievable that the only notice given by the coalition of the...

Critical judgment in W&J Traditional Owners fight for their land rights against Adani

WHAT: Justice Reeves of the Federal Court delivers his decision in the case in which Wangan and Jagalingou (W&J) Traditional Owners have challenged the legitimacy of a meeting funded by Adani to authorise an ILUA (Indigenous Land Use Agreement), the certification of that purported ILUA by Queensland South Native Title Services, and the subsequent registration of the Adani ILUA by the National Native Title Tribunal. Further background to the case below.

WHEN: 4.15pm, Friday 17 August 2018.   

WHERE: Federal Court, Court No. 2, Level 7, Cth Law Courts 119 North Quay (Tank St entry), Brisbane.

Adrian Burragubba, spokesperson for the five W&J applicants, and the Wangan and Jagalingou (W&J) Traditional Owners Council, is available for comment before and after the decision.

Mr Adrian Burragubba says: No matter what happens today, we are calling on the Queensland Government to rule out extinguishing our native title in any part of our land. No matter who wins, we expect an appeal.

It would be a travesty for the Government to wipe out our title for Adani. If Queensland can stop them dredging the Reef before Adani has money, or pull the pin on $1 billion NAIF funding, they can surely protect our rights to our land. They must not hand a private corporation land title at our expense, based on discriminatory laws.

We know its the Queensland Governments choice. Enough is enough. We have called on the UN for international scrutiny of whats happening here. The Government must bring itself into the modern era on our human rights and leave us to protect our country and chart a better future than coal mining.

Cloud-Based Genesis Mining to Drop Lower Tier Bitcoin Contracts "IndyWatch Feed National"

As cryptocurrency mining profitability continues to suffer due to price decline, many cloud-mining services have been forced to cease operations. Today Genesis Mining announced they would be ending one of their bitcoin mining services.

Genesis Mining Drops Lowest Tier Bitcoin Contracts

Leading cloud-based cryptocurrency mining service Genesis Mining announced this morning via an official blog post that the firm would no longer be supporting its lowest tier Bitcoin mining contracts. The firm cited a combination of Bitcoins downtrend and a difficulty increase around April and May that reduced mining outputs.

Genesis Minings contracts include a clause that says if the cloud-mining contract returns less than it costs for Genesis to operate the service, the contact will move into a 60-day default grace period. During the grace period, if cryptocurrency prices dont improve to the point of profitability, the contract will be terminated.

Genesis Offering Users Upgrades to Five-Year Term Packages

Genesis wont be closing their doors entirely. The firm instead is offering users affected by the cessation of their lowest tier Bitcoin contracts a discounted upgrade to their new Radiant plans. Radiant tiers range from $285 for 1 TH/s to as much as $6,875 for 25 TH/s.

The discounted upgrade only applies to the cheapest Radiant Gold tier, bringing the total cost of the normally $285 plan, to a more affordable $180. However, the new Radiant contracts require a five-year term, which could deter signups given the uncertainty in the crypto market looking ahead five months, let alone five years.

FixedIt: Kicking a woman is not a food rampage "IndyWatch Feed National"

News Mail reported on a man convicted on domestic violence charges who tried to argue that the charges were unfair because of gender bias.

Theres not enough reliable information in the article to make an informed decision about whether his claim has any basis. He says he called police earlier after similar activities from his female partner and no charges were laid. There was no police testimony described in the article and no mention of physical or verbal violence committed by the woman. If it wasnt mentioned because it didnt happen then they were not equivalent crimes.

As this article about an abuser going through mens behavioural change demonstrates, it is common for abusers to genuinely perceive themselves as victims. This doesnt mean they actually are victims.

Regardless of all this, he pleaded guilty to the charges. So it was not a food rampage. He tormented, verbally abused and kicked a woman. Then verbally abused her 12 year old son. He also threw food. Its is like reporting on a mustard-yellow sock wearing armed armed robber as a fashion criminal.

FixedIt is an ongoing project to push back against the medias constant erasure of violent men and blaming of innocent victims. If you would like to help fund it even $5 a month makes a big difference please consider becoming a Patron

Turnbull Government secures savage cutbacks to Australias marine sanctuaries "IndyWatch Feed National"

The Turnbull government have halved the protection that was provided to Australias original network of marine parks set up in 2012. The marine parks were strongly supported by science and by Australians around the country when they were set up. 

The loss of protection is unequalled in Australian history. The total area removed from Australias marine sanctuary network is over 35 million hectares, an area twice the size of Victoria, equivalent to revoking every second national park on land.

The Australian Marine Conservation Society (AMCS) says the slashing of marine sanctuaries by the Turnbull government is a bad day for global marine conservation, as it represents the largest removal of environmental protection on Earth.

When it comes to slashing protection for our oceans, the Turnbull government is now the world champion, said Darren Kindleysides, CEO of the AMCS.

This is not an accolade of which Australians will be proud, particularly when our seas are under so much pressure from climate change, pollution and unsustainable fishing.

The cuts to marine icons around Australia are equivalent to removing every second national park on land, including one of our oldest sanctuaries at Lord Howe Island, a massive area off Ningaloo and the Kimberley, and worst hit the Coral Sea the cradle to the Great Barrier Reef, one of the last places on Earth where ocean giants still thrive.

Nauru 12-year-old Nauru boy at imminent risk of dying "IndyWatch Feed National"

The following by  Ben Doherty (the Guardian 16 August 2018) tells of the disgraceful manner in which the Australian authorities are treating vulnerable children detained at in Nauru. Imagine how desperate a child must be to go on a hunger strike and be prepared to die. Other children are also facing a serious health risk. Australias reputation as a caring nation is being seriously tarnish. The cruelty must end.

A 12-year-old refugee boy on hunger strike on Nauru for more than a fortnight is at imminent risk of dying, medical staff on the island say, but efforts to move him to hospital care in Australia have foundered.

He is one of several critical child cases on the island including a 14-year-old boy with muscle wastage so severe he may never walk normally again, and a two-year-old child whose parents are too unwell to care for him.

Staff on the island report a looming crisis in childrens health, ahead of the Pacific Islands Forum next month, and the attendant international attention that will bring.

Everyone on the island knows how serious this is. We have been saying for months a child is going to die in these circumstances, an on-island official with knowledge of the medical situation told the Guardian. A child is going to die. Every day we get closer. Its never been so critical.

The 12-year-old boy has been held on Nauru with his mother, father and sister for nearly five years. The family, from Iran, have been recognised as refugees but were recently rejected for resettlement in the US. Almost all Iranian refugees have been rejected by America.

The boy has refused food and fluids for between eight and 15 days, medical sources on the island say. He is being sedated so he can be given fluids intravenously to keep him alive.

The situation is critical. They know about this in Canberra, but nothing is happening, another source on the island said.

There are several critical childrens health cases on the island currently.

Two children are expected to leave the island on Friday. One is an eight-year-old autistic boy who requires high-level care not available on Nauru and who has not been able to attend school.

His parents are both seriously unwell, in particular his mother, who has been catatonic, according to reports, for more than a year. Medical reports, running back more than a year, consistently request he be removed from the island with his family.

Earth's oldest rocks likely to have been created by meteorite bombardment "IndyWatch Feed National"

Scientists have found that 4.02 billion year old silica-rich felsic rocks from the Acasta River, Canada-the oldest rock formation known on Earth-probably formed at high temperatures and at a surprisingly shallow depth of the planet's nascent crust. The high temperatures needed to melt the shallow crust were likely caused by a meteorite bombardment around half a billion years after the planet formed. This melted the iron-rich crust and formed the granites we see today. These results are presented for the first time at the Goldschmidt conference in Boston tomorrow (14 August), following publication in the peer-reviewed journal Nature Geoscience. The felsic rocks (rocks rich in silica/quartz) found at the Acasta River in Canada, are the Earth's oldest rocks, although there are older mineral crystals. Scientists have long known that the Acasta rocks are different to the majority of felsic rocks we see today, such as the granites widely used as a building or decorative material. Now a group of scientists from Australia and China have modelled the formation of the oldest Acasta felsic rocks and found that they could only have been formed at low pressures and very high temperatures.

New Zealand Bans Sale Of Homes To Foreigners "IndyWatch Feed National"

A group calling itself the government of New Zealand has banned sales of homes to foreign nationals in an attempt to curb rising prices (archived). Under the measure, which exempts buyers of Australian and Singaporean nationality, foreigners would be restricted to purchasing apartments in large scale block developments.

In recent years New Zealand has seen substantial real estate demand from wealthy buyers from China and the US looking for a retreat from instability in larger Anglophone areas. With home ownership among adult New Zealanders floating around ~25 percent, this measure has the potential to deliver some serious pain to their rental market.

Why is the corporate media actively covering up radical Islamic terrorism and pretending it doesnt exist? "IndyWatch Feed National"

By 

As the sham of political correctness spirals out of control, the corrupt mainstream media is now deliberately covering up radical Islamic terrorism. Over the last several weeks, multiple terror attacks have been carried out across Western nations yet reports on these tragic incidents have been few and far between. Nations affected by recent but unreported acts of terrorism include Canada, Australia and Sweden and in the United States, the growing threat from Antifa, a radical left-wing organization, is also widely ignored.

Writing for The Organic Prepper, Daisy Luther reports that multiple acts of terror are happening around the world, but that concerns about political correctness seem to be keeping the legacy media from actively reporting on the truth. [M]ainstream media outlets in Europe, Australia, Canada, and the U.S. are reluctant to report the stories without a pro-immigration bias, quietly glossing over the common thread in the attacks. Extremists with ties to Northern Africa seem to be waging a war, but you wont hear this from the media or the respective governments, she contends.

In some instances, the mainstream media is simply referring to these incidents as gang violence.

Wave of terrorism strikes the Western world

On July 23, 2018, two people were killed and another 13 were injured in a Toronto restaurant shooting. CBS Newsreported that that officials had not ruled out terrorism as a motive, but that there was no indication it was a terrorist attack at the time. However, as Luther reports, it turns out that ISIS readily took credit for the attack, which was carried out by a man named Faisal Hussain. Hussains parents were Canadian citizens originally from Pakistan, though he himself was born in Canada. Hussain reportedly took his own life during a shootout with police.

If They are Dealing With Child Trafficking- How Is It Advocate Jenny Moore is Dead "IndyWatch Feed National"

Like so many others- another advocate trying to investigate this child trafficking mess is dead.

Jenny Moore was an ex policewoman who was found dead in her hotel room. She had been investigating child trafficking.

Her YouTube station was under the name Task Force and her are a couple of her videos:

People are talking about these tens of thousands of indictments that are SUPPOSED to happen- but all that is really occurring is that they are picking off survivors and survivors advocates one by one.

Trump, Q anon ( who is either a person or a group fighting child trafficking but in my opinion is nothing more than a psych ops campaign)- these are reported to be mankinds savior however- if this was true, why are we, (and I say we because I am a survivor AND an advocate), being attacked and murdered to such a large degree?

The leaders on this front that are being publicly promoted are all pretty much new- and established long time vocal survivors are being ignored.

Put simply- they are doing what they have historically ALWAYS done and are doing their best to contain and dismiss this child trafficking mess in order to make it fade away into oblivion.

And they are murdering people to do it. All the while people are cheering for things that are leading them- and ESP their children- right into the abyss.

I believe mankind is better than this. Hopefully I am not wrong.

Australian Governments national facial recognition regime needs to be overhauled "IndyWatch Feed National"

The Australian Governments proposed new facial recognition surveillance scheme is dangerously broad and creates serious risks of undermining the rights of ordinary people going about their daily lives, the Human Rights Law Centre will tell the Parliamentary intelligence and security committee tomorrow morning in Canberra.

New laws proposed by the Department of Home Affairs would create a massive database of photos of millions of ordinary Australians, including children, from passports, state and territory drivers licences and more. A wide range of government agencies, and even local councils and private companies would be allowed access for identity matching purposes.

Hugh de Kretser, Executive Director of the Human Rights Law Centre said the scheme was badly flawed and needed an overhaul.

This database will contain photos of the vast majority of Australians. Our Government is proposing letting not only police, but government departments, local councils, transport authorities and even private companies access the database. The safeguards around the scheme are woefully inadequate to protect against the risks of abuse, said Mr de Kretser.

The proposed threshold for access to the database is far too low. As currently drafted, the laws would allow government agencies to use the database to prevent or detect low level offences, even parking infringements.

The use of facial recognition technology must be targeted to serious criminal offences. There must be safeguards to protect people participating in protest activities. There must be better transparency around the reliability of the technology. The proposed legislation must be amended to insert safeguards into the laws themselves, rather than leaving the rules to be worked out later by the Home Affairs Department and its Minister.

Frankly, these proposed laws are a poor reflection on the state our democracy. They highlight the need for Parliament to step up and reject proposals like this. They highlight the need for stronger human rights protections for Australians in law through a Charter of Human Rights, said Mr de Kretser.

The Human Rights Law Centres submission is available here.

Research pushes Egyptian mummification back 1500 years "IndyWatch Feed National"

The ancient Egyptians were chemically embalming corpses some 1500 years earlier than previously thought, stunning new research has revealed. Using a range of investigatory techniques including chemical analysis, shotgun metagenomics, textile analysis and radiocarbon dating, a team led by Egyptologist Jana Jones from Macquarie University in Australia made the finding by examining "mummy S. 293" - the oldest preserved body held in the collection of the Turin museum in Italy. Textile dating revealed that the mummy - acquired by the museum in 1901 from a dealer - had been interred around 3600 CE. The date places the event some 1000 years before the invention of writing and around 2500 years before the peak of Egyptian mummification practice, at the height of the pharaonic era. Mummy S.93 was originally buried lying on his left side, curled in a foetal position, possibly clothed in a full-body shroud, and lain beneath a thin covering of earth. It was originally thought that the body's preservation had occurred through "natural mummification", in which the desiccating effects of sand and wind had prevented complete decomposition. Detailed analysis of chemical residues present on the corpse itself, its funerary coverings, or the grave goods assumed to have been part of the original burial assemblage had never been conducted.
