The Media Meltdown of 2017 in the wake of the Harvey Weinstein disclosures is, to say the least, ironic. Why has the feminism-promoting media industry turned out to be the worst offender in abusing young women?

For example, PBS star Charlie Rose was taken down on Monday for decades of unmitigated horndoggery around his bevy of lovely young lady producers, known in the business as Charlie’s Angels.

Also on Monday The New York Times’ anti-Trump White House correspondent Glenn Thrush was suspended.

And by the time you read this, there will likely be others.

Now, it’s almost certain that some largely innocent men will be swept up in the mounting hysteria.

After all, the definition of sexual harassment as “unwanted sexual advances” is a logical morass. As I pointed out in 1992 when forecasting that the incoming Clinton administration would be rocked by a sexual-harassment scandal:

"What self-respecting woman would admit that no man had ever made an unwanted sexual advance toward her? She’d be admitting either that no man’s ever made her a sexual advance or that she’s never met a sexual advance she didn’t like."

On the other hand, most of the guys who have taken a fall so far, such as movie moguls Harvey Weinstein and Brett Ratner, have been notorious jerks.

After all, the fellows shamed so far are largely not random Republicans, as they were supposed to be. Instead, they are primarily Democratic Party made men. For example, Ratner, who got his start in showbiz procuring white girls for rap mogul Russell Simmons, hosted a 2007 fund-raiser attended by Hillary at his infamous Hilhaven swinging bachelor pad.

Granted, one reason the media have ended up exposing themselves is because their stories tend to be more interesting. In contrast, there is currently a sizable sex-abuse scandal going on at the leftist Service Employees International Union, which represents janitors and hotel maids.
You might not have heard about it yet, in part because the SEIU is a stalwart of the Democratic Party and its plan to rig American elections by importing millions of foreign ringers. For years, SEIU’s largely Jewish leadership has been selling out the economic interests of its largely Hispanic members by demanding more immigration to create more Democratic voters.

But another reason that the SEIU scandal story isn’t as sexy as the media scandals is that janitors, maids, and union staffers are unglamorous and kind of depressing. Who wants to read about them?

For years the press has been telling us that industries that hire mostly men—such as computer programming, defense, and the military—must be bad for women. No doubt, it is explained, all those horrible, evil male engineers must be teaming up to exploit the handful of female employees. After all, men and women are enemy genders. I mean, that’s what every lesbian women’s-studies professor says, and they wouldn’t have any incentive to lie, would they?
Therefore, women must be given much more in the way of affirmative-action quotas in technology companies. Similarly, the Obama administration went to war against the armed services over the purported “epidemic of rape in the military” that turned out to be only slightly more real than Haven Monahan’s fraternity-house gang rape on broken glass.

Instead, however, we see that careers where women are most abundant and most ambitious, such as television and movies, are where they are most exploited.

Why? It’s simple supply and demand.

Conversely, just as women got the vote way back in 1870 in the frontier states of Wyoming and Utah because cowboys wanted to encourage schoolmarms to migrate, women tend to be treated rather well by lonely male employees in industries where they are rare.

For example, secretaries at midcentury Lockheed Aircraft, such as my mother and her friends, tended to do quite well for themselves in acquiring husbands. After my mother was widowed when her Marine first husband was killed in combat on Iwo Jima in early 1945, she found my engineer father. They were married from 1946 until her death in 1998.

My father wasn’t a genius engineer. His career was spent figuring out how to keep the more brilliant designers’ envelope-pushing airplanes, such as the F-104, from crashing. And he was socially awkward. But he was a good man.

My mother’s best friend married another engineer, Henry Combs. They were married from 1948 until her death in 2013. Ben Rich called Henry a “genius” in his superb memoir Skunk Works about Lockheed’s legendary R&D wing that Rich led. Combs became the technical director of the Skunk Works and, according to Rich, was the chief designer of the 2,000-mph SR-71, the most awesome airplane ever built.

The founder of the Skunk Works, Kelly Johnson, America’s most famous aeronautical engineer, married a girl in the Lockheed accounting department in 1937. When she was dying in 1969, she explained to Kelly that he was too busy to take care of himself, so she had arranged for him to marry his secretary, which he did. When his second wife was dying, she in turn found a third wife for him.

But that was Kelly Johnson in the bad old days in a conservative industry. In contrast, in progressive media industries in feminist 2017, alpha males like Weinstein and Rose treat women more like Ismail the Bloodthirsty did.

The female sex has shown that their emotional responses have not yet evolved to deal well with modern visual media. Women tend to be too impressed by the men on screen and too hell-bent to get themselves on screen.

In one of Philip Roth’s lesser novels, The Dying Animal, the narrator is a 62-year-old college professor who seduces one of his undergraduate students every semester and then discards her for a new one the following semester. How does the old dog do it? He moonlights on the local PBS channel as an arts expert for a few minutes per week. This might not seem like much fame, but for a 19-year-old coed, Roth’s narrator explains, “They are helplessly drawn to celebrity, however inconsiderable mine may be.”

Likewise, in the real world, an anonymous TV anchorman explained in 2004:

"At the producing level, it’s all young women, 99 percent of whom have no chance of being on TV. They like being in TV and they like powerful men. Each host has around him lots of good-looking, unmarried women. Women are excited by power, let’s be totally clear."

Likewise, lots of women want to be on screen themselves. A female producer at CNN complained thirteen years ago:

"In the last 10 years or so, it seems there are more and more young, pretty women who are just dying to be on television…. It’s just about being on television, and they’ll do anything to get there—among those things, being treated poorly."

Of course, there is little effective solidarity among women in the media business. As a female CNN producer noted:

"There aren’t that many female executive producers. And they’re mean to those girls who are pretty and want to be on television."

There’s probably not a lot we can do about this, except to not pay so much heed to people on screen who lecture us about their superior morality.

Quote# 134506

Something had set Lane Davis off, but that wasn’t unusual.

It was a clear summer afternoon on July 14, on Samish Island—a small, idyllic community off the northwest coast of Washington state—where Lane, a balding, bearded, Donald Trump-supporting conspiracy theorist and prolific YouTuber and Redditor, known online as Seattle4Truth, lived with his parents.

Lane had spent that Friday morning as he did most mornings, on the internet. This day, like the others, Lane read and retweeted posts celebrating the Second Amendment, bemoaning diversity, and spreading conspiracy theories that alleged Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman John Podesta was involved in a child sex ring and DNC staffer Seth Rich
had been murdered for leaking sensitive emails to WikiLeaks. It was the end of a busy week during which he contributed to the Donald Trump subreddit, and over on The Ralph Retort, a fringe blog where he worked as a political editor, (unpaid, according to the site’s owner), he had celebrated the idea of a Kid Rock Senate run, claimed America was under threat of Sharia law, and wondered whether CNN was “literally ISIS.”



Lane’s parents, Catherine and Charles Davis—Charles was known as Chuck to his friends—were used to their 33-year-old son’s outbursts. They had become so frequent that Charles had started recording the tirades on his phone. But that afternoon, they were tired of Lane’s screaming, wanted him to leave, and told him as much. Instead, Lane chased his parents around their home, spitting in his father’s face while screaming that he wasn’t threatening to kill them, but “pedophiles who were taking over the country.”

Catherine Davis called 911. The tape of her call was acquired by The Daily Beast.

“He’s not physically threatening us or anything,” Catherine told the dispatcher. “He just gets out of control and he’s ranting about stuff from the internet.”

Was Lane drunk, the dispatcher asked? On drugs? Was there any history of a mental disorder?

“No, not reported, but he’s not working and he gets on these rampages and he just needs to move on,” Catherine replied.

The dispatcher suggested Catherine and Charles stay away from Lane until the police arrived.

“We’re trying to but he’s chasing us around the house,” she replied. “He’s mad about something on the internet about leftist pedophiles and he thinks we’re leftist and he’s calling us pedophiles. And I don’t know what all.”

Catherine laughed. “He just lives on the internet and he gets really worked up about everything that’s going on. He needs an intervention of some kind here.”

Police were on their way, the dispatcher told Catherine, and she hung up. But Charles’s phone kept recording.

On the 12-minute audio file later recovered by Skagit County Detective Kevin Sigman, a manic Lane, enraged by his mother’s 911 call, says, “OK well, so here’s the deal. If I am going to go to prison for threatening to kill somebody, I mean...”

“Leave the knife alone,” Charles says while his mother tries to reassure him: No one wants to send him to prison, they just want some help.

Lane doesn’t seem to hear or believe his mother. “So, you are going to send me to prison?” he asks. “My life is over.”

Minutes later, Catherine called 911 again. The audio recording is hard to hear. In it, Catherine is running and the portable phone she’s using breaks up. Catherine screams “He stabbed him!” before the connection is lost.

As the 73-year-old maritime lawyer and grandfather of two lay bleeding on the back deck, stabbed by his son in the chest and the back with a chef’s knife, Lane walked outside, dropped his weapon and stood with his hands in the air, waiting for police to arrive.

Catherine called 911 once more. “He’s dead, he’s dead, he’s dead.”

Quote# 134500

The submission to Islam continues in France

(...)

The plates that are supposed to remember what happened were once again visible and we could once again note what was written: The victims, so says the plate, were assassinated. The words "djihad", "radical islam" and "islamism" are words that are nowadays omitted as much as possible. The word "terrorism" itself is set aside.

The word "murder" has still the right to be cited, but seen how things are going, it could disappear, because it could be seen as offensive to the assassins.

This is how we erase the collective memory. This is how the submission continues.

Original French:
La soumission à l’islam avance en France

(...)

Les plaques censées rappeler ce qui s’est passé ont été visibles une fois de plus et on a pu constater une fois de plus ce qui y était inscrit: les victimes, disent les plaques, ont été assassinées. Les mots “djihad”, “islam radical” ou “islamisme” sont des mots qui se trouvent désormais omis autant que faire se peut. Le mot “terrorisme” lui-même est laissé de côté.

Le mot “assassinat” a encore droit de cité, mais au train où vont les choses, il pourrait lui-même disparaître un jour, car il pourrait paraître offensant pour les assassins.

C’est ainsi qu’on efface la mémoire collective. C’est ainsi qu’avance la soumission.

Quote# 134499

Kindly, and lovingly, I've got a big independent Baptist church down the street from me on Guam, whose shameful pastors I have repeatedly warned in a spirit of Christian love, that their “Easy-To-Read Version” is of the Devil. Instead of listening to the rebuke of a wise man (humbly), they kicked me out of THEIR church and on three later occasions have refused even allow me to attend their church services. They hate and despise me and the truth, THAT MUCH!!! I'm talking about the Bob Jones University camp, who embrace the Devil's Bible PERversions, and call me and Dr. Jack Hyles “a cult” for being King James Bible only in our beliefs and preaching!!! Isaiah 53:3, “He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not.” I know how Jesus felt, being rejected and despised, and the Lord knows how I feel (Hebrews 4:15-16). I am being rejected, despised, ostracized, hated, ridiculed, and stereotyped as being in “a cult,” having been set at nought by my own Christian pastoral brethren in the local Baptist church. I've been outcast as the blacksheep of the church family... ALL BECAUSE I AM TELLING THE TRUTH!!!

The immature Baptist church on Guam, that I speak of, are indifferent toward truth. It matters not to them that Satan has flooded the churches with umpteen Bible versions. They officially use two different Bible versions: One originating from Antioch, Syria (the King James Bible); and the other text (which is corrupt) originating from Alexandrian, Egypt (the Easy-To-Read Version). The church's multiple pastors are indifferent about all this, refusing to pick a Bible and stick with it. Consequently, the church is a safe-haven for false doctrine, ranging from the evils of Lordship Salvation to the corruption of the Word of God itself. I love them, but they don't love Jesus, for if they did, then the purity of the Word of God would matter to them. Jesus is called, “THE WORD OF GOD” (Revelation 19:13). The purity of God's Word is upon my heart 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, all the time. I MUST have the very pure words of God to live by, and I have them, hallelujah!, in the precious King James Bible!!!

I can't play church! I just cannot stomach it!!! I can't take the phoniness. I have to proclaim THE TRUTH!!! Even if that harelips every dog in the county, then so be it!!! For my zeal and stand for THE TRUTH, for the Lord, I have been blackballed by the Bob Jones camp, kicked out, belittled, turned away, and left looking for another church family. It is wrong, but Jesus sees what they've done to me, and God will judge everyone at the Judgment Seat of Christ. I say that with love. What the Bob Jones University camp called me and Dr. Hyles “a cult,” so did they say those untrue words to Jesus. They banned me from their local church services, banned me from men's prayer meeting, and in so doing they BANNED JESUS CHRIST!!! They banned me because I faithfully shared THE TRUTH about God's Word, exposing the modern Bible versions as a fraud.

The Bible says that when someone hurts us, they've done it to Jesus Christ. Matthew 25:40, “And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.” I am not alone in my hurt, pain, frustration and suffering, Jesus feels what I feel, He is outside the Bob Jones University camp with me, enduring the mockery, rejection, being called an ”enemy” and being labeled as “a cult” member. I have MUCH to say against them all on judgment day.

Genesis 1:27: So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. Deuteronomy 23:1: He that is wounded in the stones, or hath his privy member cut off, shall not enter into the congregation of the LORD. Let’s start off with saying that God doesn’t make mistakes. GOD CREATED US TO BE MALE AND FEMALE! God has ordained different roles for men and for women! Men go out and WORK HARD while women stay at home and take care of the kids and cook and clean! Yet, men insist upon wearing drag and taking estrogen and mutilating their flesh! Breast enhancements, cutting off their penises, and all of this other garbage! No matter how much money you put into this vanity, and no matter how many dresses and how much makeup you wear, YOU WILL ALWAYS BE A MAN! YOU MOCK GOD IF YOU ATTEMPT TO “CORRECT” HIS PERFECT CREATION! WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! You can’t get pregnant! You can’t have kids! You don’t get your period! All you may have are some fake breasts and a fake vagina! Have you ever heard a transvestite talk? That’s conclusive evidence that you WILL ALWAYS HAVE XY CHROMOSOMES AND WILL ALWAYS BE A MAN AND THAT IS BECAUSE IT IS WHAT THE LORD HATH ORDAINED! OWWWWWWWWWWWWW!!! There’s also women these days, these really butch lesbos trying to become men with a fake penis! Can’t have kids either! Feminism has run amok, and women aren’t just happy with being in the workforce and wearing short hair and pants and other men’s clothing!! They gotta have a pseudo-penis and chop off their breasts as well! That’s a total mockery to Our Lord Jesus Christ! SAY AMEN IN THE HOUSE OF GOD!!!!!! In the DSM-V, there is a mental illness called gender dysphoria! This is a MENTAL ILLNESS, NOT A “GENDER IDENTITY!” LETTING A TRANSVESTITE MUTILATE THEIR FLESH AND TAKE HORMONES IS LIKE GIVING AN ALCOHOLIC A FIFTH OF JACK DANIELS OR GIVING A MORBIDLY OBESE PERSON A BIG MAC! THESE TRANSVESTITES DO NOT NEED TO INDULGE IN THEIR MENTAL ILLNESS! THEY NEED HELP, WHICH CAN BE FOUND IN THE WORD OF GOD! HALLELUJAH! PRAISE THE LORD! THESE FREAKS OF NATURE ARE NOT CONTENT WITH MOCKING GOD’S CREATION! THE PRONOUN POLICE IN CALIFORNIA ARE MAKING CRIMINALS OUT OF GODLY FOLKS AND THEY LET THE SODOMITE DISEASE AIDS RUN AMOK! THE TAXPAYERS ARE FOOTING THE BILL FOR ALL THIS NONSENSE AS TRANSVESTITE MEN CONTINUE TO GO INTO THE WOMEN’S ROOM AND RAPE LITTLE GIRLS AND HELPLESS WOMEN! THIS IS MORALLY REPUGNANT AND MUST CEASE IMMEDIATELY!!!!!! God's people said AMEN!

Interestingly – and this is a matter of interest in all gender-related discourse – the term used throughout this debacle is ‘identify’, demonstrating that even the chief dissemination agents of this perversion of science acknowledge that it’s nothing more than one thing pretending to be another.

However, the effects that flagrant liberal propaganda such as this could have a very real and serious consequences for the minds of an entire generation. To teach such impressionable minds that they need no longer be bound by the laws of science and nature, is to sow the seeds of psychosis  in all of society.

After all, it is no mystery that over around 50% of self-identifying transsexuals commit suicide. These are very sick people, and to present this behind the facade of normality will do untold damage to Swedish children.

A more prudent approach could be to teach children the reality of psychology, so that they can grow up with a will to understand and help others recover, rather than growing up only for themselves to become patients.

Atheism is unconstitutional, says deputy minister

Atheism should not be allowed in Malaysia for any citizen as it contradicts both the Federal Constitution and the Rukunegara, said Deputy Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Datuk Dr Asyraf Wajdi Dusuki (pix).

He said atheist ideologies were dangerous as they were being propagated to not only Muslims but to the non-Muslims in Malaysia.

“Atheism contradicts the first principle of the Rukunegara, which is a belief in God.

“We need to understand, that in the Malaysian context, our Federal Constitution states that freedom of religion is not freedom from religion.


Dr Asyraf said for Muslims, Article 11(1) which allows for freedom of religion, should be read together with Article 11(4) that prohibits the spreading of other religious beliefs and doctrines among Muslims.

“The Government can draw up any legal provisions necessary to prevent such beliefs and doctrines, which is deemed to be a threat to the sanctity of Islam.

“As for the non-Muslims, it (atheism) also goes against the laws of public order and morality.

“For instance, anyone who tries to spread ideologies and doctrines that promote atheism and similar beliefs, which tarnish the sanctity of other religions, can be charged under the Sedition Act,” he said.

No it's not. Juche emphasises self-reliance. It's not exceptionalism, it's survival. They have to be strict because they are under siege from a violent, genocidal imperialist military who will absolutely do anything to destroy them. The US has used infiltration, sabotage, and assassinations in multiple communist countries in the recent past, there is every reason to suspect that they will attempt to do so again.

Defensive collective isn't enough when you're a tiny half of a peninsula with 15% arable land and so many sanctions you can't even trade with countries who traditionally used to be your allies. There's a reason why DPRK stands today. Check out the 'Debunking Anti-Communism Masterpost' on the sidebar, specifically it's section on the DPRK for a more nuanced understanding of Korean reality, not imperialist propaganda.

I am glad that the DPRK has this means of self defense now. I saw an anarchist bashing the DPRK on Twitter, and I think to myself: "Does this person enjoy getting their asses kicked? Do this person actually want to win?" I am beginning to think that they don't want to win, or at least that they don't want to fight. I can't believe that anyone enjoys getting their asses kicked that much. You need a state and a means of self-defense to protect revolutionary gains. This has been proven time and time again.

The anarchists' ideas sound very fine, but it seems to me that they only work in frictionless systems where the national bourgeoisie peacefully agree to leave power and the international bourgeoisie do not try to crush the revolution. Most of their criticisms of successful Marxist revolutions seem to be criticisms of the measures those Marxist revolutions had to take to ensure their own survival and continued revolutionary progress.

If the Soviet Union or the DPRK or Cuba grew crooked in the eyes of these anarchists, it is entirely because the imperialist-capitalist nations and their bourgeoisie did not allow those revolutions to grow straight! Rosa Luxemburg excoriated the German Social-Democrats of her time for this sort of criticism of the Bolsheviks, saying that it was wrong of them to expect the Bolsheviks to be saints who could perform miracles.

It seems to me that most of us here understand that plans will not survive contact with reality. We make plans with goals in mind, reality happens, and we adjust based on that experience. Marx himself did this over the course of his life, in light of what he had observed. Socialism in one country had never been anticipated, and was not even considered possible until the Soviet Union did it.

I am strongly against imperialist agression in the DPRK, especially by the AmeriKKKans, and acknowlegde that nearly every claim made about the DPRK (death camps, dictatorship, brainwashed citizens, worship their leaders) has no basis in fact, only in capitalist propaganda and white nationalism.

Even if there is human rights abuse in the DPRK, it is FAR less than the abuse in the U$ on a daily basis. I believe the possession of nukes is necessary to keep the U$ out of the DPRK. Based on what happened to Mummar Qaddafi, the DPRK should NEVER surrender their nuclear weapons unless the U$ and other imperialist powers do first.

For over 35 years I lived in a heavily gay area. I saw them almost every day in and around my building. In the 70s I happened to see a show about the "gay agenda" and it was quite clear they meant business, that no one was going to get in their way. A number of those living in and around my building also made it quite clear that no one was going to get in their way. I was a personal witness to their actions and corruption. Therefore, I write with authority. The world is in for a rude awakening if they continue down the path of acceptance of this abomination.

[=A response to an article writing grief following the Orlando Massacre and how Christians should respond=]

To Josh Daffern,

First, it is very important to understand this: The truth must come before emotions and feelings (Jn 4:24). Why? For one thing emotions and feelings can deceive you where the real truth is a never changing constant (Jn 14:6; Prov 30:5-6; 1 Cor 4:6). We must also understand that no-one can live without breaking God's eternal law=sin that separates us from God. Some get into one or more sins more than another, some deeper into particular sins more than others.

Further, Jesus did not walk among the sinners to join in with them. He came to save sinners, to show them the way out of their sins (repentance - if they will not repent they will be worthless). He did not show worldly love to them nor did He celebrate anything with them (Jesus knew everything that would be written in the legit Bible). That is because He fully understood the difference between God's true love and repentance and man's foolish ideas of what love is coming from their sin nature (Lk 14:26; Rom 12:*9; Mt 6:24; Gal 1:10; Jam 4:*4; 1 Jn 2:*15; Amos 5:15; Jn 2:*24-25; 7:7,**24; 17:*9; Lk 9:**60 [the unsaved are dead already]; 23:51; 2 Cor 5:*16).

The problem many make is not understanding that you cannot just take a few verses and form a teaching from them. To achieve true interpretation and right understanding takes use of both the OT and NT together, along with the careful comparing and weighing every verse, passage, chapter and book against every other of the 66 legit Bible books (Jn 7:24 - includes right judgment for everything written in the Bible).

Only then can we begin to understand the true connections and differences between the OT and the NT and the actual one true interpretation (while being very careful not to add or omit anything from the Bible [Prov 30:6; 1 Cor 4:6] = There is only one God, one Jesus Christ, one Holy Spirit and one truth that stands forever unchanged [all of these are in full agreement and full compliance] = only one true interpretation is correct. Jesus was not talking out 2 nor 1000s of sides of His mouth=non confusion=the absolute truth.

What does all this mean with respect to your article? True Christians are not to do anything that even gives the appearance that we accept, support, promote or that we are participating in what God, Jesus and Jesus' fully trained Apostles have declared are in fact abominations against God, homosexuality being one of the main ones. In other words, mourning is mostly restricted to mourning the death of other Christians or members of their families dependant on what they were into if not Chistian. Also, true Christians are not to kill, gloat over or celebrate the unsaved's deaths.

One main issue overlooked by some is the fact that one cannot remain Christian if they continue in behavior that is an abomination. While humanly many Christians want to openly feel sorry for the deaths in Orlando, be emotional and have compassion for them it can only be very limited because the reality is they need to turn to Jesus for real and get away from that behavior because Hell is a real place.

The truth is that these deaths are a warning from God just as other deaths are warnings from God that they better turn to Jesus before it is too late. The Bible makes it clear that worse is coming and the more they pursue such behaviors the greater the destruction that will be coming soon (it is the end-times and eventually God's patience will run out and He will more and more lift His restraint on the devil, allowing him more and more power over the unsaved.

Eventually, the unsaved will insist on their evil ways to the point that they will make great effort to kill and get rid of Christians. Again, the Orlando massacre is just another hint of what God is going to allow to happen (see Mat 24, Mk 13, Lk 21, 2 Thes 2, Dan 11 & 12 and Rev). There is a great difference between right God's love and wrong "worldly" love. We need to rightly fully understand the difference or there will be a chance that you will be deceived (1 Cor 14:7-8).

Obviously, true Christians should not be supporting killing others as we are all sinners but the unsaved do need to know that what they are doing is in fact an abomination which God hates and His anger and wrath will grow as they refuse to repent (Jer 23:20). Find and carefully study my other posts. They all go together.
