Australian 60 Minutes exposed the Worldwide Satanic Pedophile Network
Note: This article is based on police investigatory reports… personal documented testimony of enraged policemen and women. The story itself has major credibility; and the facts presented here have been corroborated by hundreds of investigators, LE and private in the USA, UK and other nations. PJ]
Australian 60 Minutes published a story that 60 Minutes (America) would never dare touch. In America and the UK, the Pedophile Network controls high ranking Pedophile politicians, the Major Mass Media, FBI, the CIA and top Law Enforcement.
This has made it almost impossible to get the truth out to the populace about the presence and penetration of this worldwide Satanic Pedophile Network.
Those editors of the major mass media and elected or appointed officials that are not part of it or compromised by it realize that to try and expose it results in an immediate loss of their job, their retirement, and they will be blacklisted and perhaps even have their lives threatened.
Notwithstanding all these strong suppression forces in the past, not only was the CIA’s Franklin Credit Union pedophile scandal exposed by the Washington Times, but the finders scandal was exposed by US News and World Report.
And, despite those highly public exposures, the Major Mass Media failed to promote those important stories; and the stories died out, with no corrective actions by federal LE, which we now know is dirty to the core, because its own leaders are fully compromised by this Pedophile Network.
It's not that we would be madly in love with Donald Trump. Yeah, he may not be the brightest one. Not even bright enough for political correctness. But hey, that's a plus, not a minus. Fuck that political correctness.
Neurosurgeon plans to bring deceased BACK TO LIFE with pioneering BRAIN TRANSPLANT
DEAD people who have been cryogenically frozen could be brought back to life within three years - by having their brains transplanted into in a new body, a pioneering neurosurgeon has claimed.
Professor Sergio Canavero is preparing to perform the world's first successful head transplant this December and believes the first ever brain transplant is only a few years away from also becoming a reality.
Prof Canavero, director of the Turin Advanced Neuromodulation Group, said his team had made "massive progress" in experiments that "seemed impossible even as recently as a few months ago".
In an interview with German magazine Ooom, he said: "We are currently planning the world’s first brain transplant, and I consider it realistic that we will be ready in three years at the latest."
Despite the huge scientific and ethical implications of his work, Prof Canavero is pressing ahead with his ground-breaking plans, and has teamed up with Dr. Xiaoping Ren of China to carry out the world's first head transplant later this year.
The operation will be carried out at Harbin Medical University, northern China, and the patient will be Chinese, Prof Canavero said.
The biggest barrier to a successful head transplant is reconnecting the brain to the severed spinal column, in order to control movement and sensation.
But Prof Canavero insisted: "This problem has now been solved."
He said his team had successfully restored mobility to mice that had had their spinal chords entirely severed using a fluid called Texas-PEG.
He added that many controlled studies on different animals had been conducted in South Korea and China and that the results were "unambiguous".
"The spinal cord – and with it the ability to move – can be entirely restored," he said.
Plans to perform the world's first brain transplant are already underway, the surgeon said.
Despite widespread scepticism in the scientific community, Prof Canavero said a brain transplant had "many advantages".
He said: ”First, there is barely any immune reaction, which means the problem of rejection does not exist.
"The brain is, in a manner of speaking, a neutral organ."
He said one problem was the brain would be hosted in an entirely different body, the impact of which remained to be seen.
Nevertheless, Prof Canavero said he hoped to bring back to life the first patients currently frozen at the Alcor Life Extension Foundation in Arizona.
Should he succeed in resurrecting the dead, Prof Canavero said the implications would permanently alter mankind's understanding of the world - and that religion "will be swept away forever".
He said: "They (religous beliefs) will no longer be necessary, as humans will no longer need to be afraid of death.
"They will know as a scientific fact that our consciousness – or whatever it is – survives death. We no longer need a Catholic Church, no Judaism and no Islam because religions in general will be obsolete."
By extension, the answer to the question "what is the meaning of life?" would also be redundant, the surgeon said.
"If we take hope out of life, out of the human equation, then what remains?," Prof Canavero explained.
95 percent of the victims of work accidents are men. Because women are cowards, and just want to rule from behind.
Israel’s Fire Jihad, Intifada, A Weapon of Mass Destruction: (Past)Time To Place Arab/Islamic Sector On Notice. What Are Israel’s Leaders Waiting For?
FEW could argue – most of all, their counterparts in the intelligence security realm – that Israel’s Shin Bet, aka Shabak….GSS, its internal domestic security agency, isn’t up to snuff. Indeed, generally, they nab their targets before they strike, or soon thereafter.
MOREOVER, relative to jihadi terror, it must be noted that Allah’s Muslim Terrorists are adept at waging jihad by arson, and on a yearly basis. Specifically, they honed this terror tactic back in 2010. Who recalls the devastating wreckage from Haifa’s Carmel region forest fires? If not, time to catch up to speed!
IN this regard, how believable is it that said internal security forces had no clue as to the internal fifth column’s plans to wage a COORDINATED intifada via jihadi arson, and on a scale heretofore unseen in Israel’s history? Come on….
NOT only that, unarguably, plans to use a WMD – yes, indubitably, arson on a mass scale is a weapon of mass destruction – to burn down Israel is hardly something that a hard-charging security agency would miss. This is especially the case in a country that it is not that much bigger than New Jersey, the 5th smallest state in the U.S. Extrapolating further, if their U.S. counterpart, the FBI, only had New Jersey (or a similar sized state) to guard over, would anyone believe that their agents failed to hear whispers relative to said fiery plot, even within the lowest level of chatter? Hogwash.
AND if proof of the same is required as to how adept, creative and agile they are, how many know that their agents get wind of every fart that Jewish nationalists make – regardless of their locale in Israel – in so far as when they assert their righteous claims, birthright, to the so-called “settlements” in Judea and Samaria? Believe it.
MIND you, this is not to suggest that Israel’s security agency ignored said “chatter” from orders at the tippy top. Not at all. But it is not for nothing that some birdies within these pages – those who operate within the deepest underbelly of the national landscape – have suggested that murmurs, suspicions, or what not went in one ear and out the other. As to why, well, there is speculation, most of which revolves around leftist and Arabist-bent agents who are not exactly operating in Jewish nationalist interests. Cogitate.
AND while some feathers will surely be ruffled with this and that line of disinfectant, so be it. Even so, and in no uncertain terms, the fire services, IDF, police and attendant agencies worked heroically to save lives and stamp out the wildfires. Kudos to one and all.
AS to Israel’s domestic jihadists – in line with PA/Hamas brethren – they understand that they haven’t a prayer in Allah’s fiery hell to win a conventional war against Israel. Therefore, they hurtle from one method of terror to another, hoping to cause as many Jewish deaths and destruction as possible. So as they jump from knife-jihad, to stabbings, onto shootings, bombings, and lobbing rockets in between, lo and behold, they have now reached their peak via an arson intifada!
Homes were evacuated in one residential neighborhood after another Thursday, Nov. 24, ahead of the huge flames and thick smoke enveloping Israel’s third city, Haifa, three days after hundreds of wildfires, most caused by arsonists, began spreading across the country. At least 100 people suffered injuries in Haifa, most from smoke inhalation, and dozens of shock victims were taken to hospital. Haifa University and the Technion was cleared and closed. as flames consumed buildings around the campuses. The Damon and Carmel prisons are being evacuated. Efforts were made with volunteers to help inmates of nursing homes and hospitals to safety…..
The Israeli government was called into emergency session Thursday night, as the fires continued to blaze out of control, whipped up by dry winds which are forecast to last another six days.
Five Palestinians were detained on suspicion of arson. A contraption used by arsonists was discovered at the scene of one of the fires. The Shin Bet and fire brigade’s investigators have gone into action to put a stop to the wave of arson attacks, which are encouraged by Palestinian social media..
As the fully mobilized fire teams rushed from scene to scene, backed by Homeland Security Ministry reserve firefighters and soldiers, it became apparent that there was no clear organization in place for mass evacuations, especially of citizens without private cars, the elderly, handicapped and families with small children. The emergency services issued conflicting guidelines to the public causing chaos. Families told to evacuate in their own vehicles gridlocked the roads needed to stay open for fire engines and other emergency traffic, instead of the city hall commandeering buses. Haifa is an industrial city with petrochemical industries and an oil refinery with abundant woods and parks, especially on the Carmel. Yet the central operations room for managing the emergency was set up too late to control the town as fires sprang up in five places..
The outskirts of Modi’in, a town between Tel Aviv and Jerusalem caught fire again Thursday after the flames were brought under control during the night. There were signs of arson. Schools and kindergartens were closed early morning….
STILL yet, despite the horrific lethality of arson jihad as a weapon of mass destruction, as always, the key and core lies with officialdom and their responses, or lack thereof. As to Islamic Jew-killers – wherever they are – they will never stop their quest to destroy the Jewish homeland and murder as many Jews as they can. We get that.
RESULTANT, what is of dire concern is the usual huffing and puffing ala officialdom, almost as if on robotic cue. Déjà vu too. To wit, each time another wave of terror envelops Israel, the leadership raises its collective roar that they will NOT tolerate this and that, as if THAT will cause the fifth column to shake and quake! Blowhards – Israel’s leadership.
SO just like during the start of last year’s knife jihad in the Fall of 2015 – and it is ongoing – Israel’s huffers and puffers had this to say:
The Israeli authorities erected roadblocks and checkpoints in some Arab neighborhoods of East Jerusalem on Wednesday and deployed hundreds of police officers and soldiers on the roads and buses, a response to a series of Palestinian knife assaults that the government called a “wave of terrorism.”
Even with the intensified security, at least two assaults were reported Wednesday.
A few hours later, an attacker stabbed and wounded a woman about 70 years old as she was about to board a bus near the central bus station in West Jerusalem, according to the police. A police officer saw the assailant with a knife and shot him, the police said. It was not immediately clear if he was killed.
Seven Israeli Jews have been killed this month by Palestinian assailants, including three on Tuesday in Jerusalem: two in an attack on a bus at the juncture of Jewish and Arab areas, and one pedestrian in an ultra-Orthodox neighborhood who was rammed by a vehicle and then hit with a meat cleaver…..
Hmm….you got that? Not only did their pithy fist-waving fail to deter Israel’s internal fifth column, but they raised the ante through arson jihad!
SIMILARLY, at the same time that so-called right-wing leaders are promising to quell the latest fiery terror, guess what? Par for their course, they reverted true to bloviating form! For crying out loud, MK Bennett, one who surely knows what’s what – understanding full well that carving out a PA terror state from the heart of Israel is a non-starter – intoned at the Jerusalem Post Conference, trenchantly, which happened to coincide with the start of the wildfires.
Regarding what to do with the Palestinians instead of forming a state, he said Israel should take steps to improve the Palestinians’ quality of life, such as giving them full freedom of movement, tourism projects, and helping them reach jobs in Israel easier. For the first time in a public speech, Bennett called for the creation of a “land-port” to help Palestinians enter Israel.
“We should seek to manage the conflict in a reasonable way,” he said. “We can’t create them a state, but let’s see what we can do. We can give them a Marshall plan to boost their economy and an autonomy on steroids.”
WRAP your brains around his “solution.” Effectively, in so far that PA Arabs are wholly nourished on Jew-hatred and have aided and abetted terror for decades on end – in tandem, Israel’s own internal fifth column consider themselves part of the “Palestinian” people – why in heaven’s name would Bennett babble about “improving” their lives and making it easier for them to enter Israel, be it for work or anything else?? Mind blowing.
IN other words, are the lunatics running the asylum – or not? You decide.
SO in light of the above, how much credence should be given to the following announcement by PM Netanyahu, as well as another blowhard in Israeli officialdom?
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that any of the fires plaguing northern and central Israel this week found to be the work of arsonists will be considered terrorism.
“Every fire that was the result of arson or incitement to arson is terror in every way and we’ll treat it as such. Anyone who tries to burn parts of the state of Israel will be severely punished,” Netanyahu said.
About 1,500 fires have broken out in Israel since Tuesday, and it is now believed that at least 60 percent of them were caused by arson.
Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan, who joined Netanyahu in Haifa, along with Interior Minister Arye Deri and Construction Minister Yoav Galant for a briefing on the situation, said it is clear that a large part of the fires were caused by arson.
He also reported that a number of suspects have been arrested, and that teams have been set up to investigate each fire.
Erdan pledged that the investigations will be thorough, and punishment will be meted out in order to create deterrence – not only to those lighting fires, but also to those on social media inciting others to set them.
AND speaking of incitement to jihad via social media, well, no one has to school in this direction, after all, this expert wrote the book!
Horrifically, thousands of Arab internet users have been gleefully applaudingthe arson attacks and calling for additional fires to be set in Israel. The social media messages have been posted by Arab government officials as well as regular Arab citizens from Jordan, the Palestinian Authority, Egypt and Qatar.
Meanwhile, the Arab language social media networks have been ablaze with postings encouraging additional arson attacks. “#Tel_Aviv_IsBurning” was the most common Arabic hashtag trending on Arab social media platforms this morning.
These postings continue to incite terrorist violence on the Internet against Israel without the social media companies taking any steps to block the messages nor terminate the accounts of those calling for attacks.
Once again the social media companies are turning a blind eye to this dangerous incitement and becoming a tool in the hands of those urging violence against innocent Jews.
MOST significantly, one has to honestly and urgently inquire: why should anyone believe that Israel’s mentally besieged leadership will finally raise an iron fist…barzel…??????? …against them, and that this time the punishment will be swift and shockingly severe?
INESTIMABLY, rationally speaking, revoking the citizenship of all terrorists and their families should be the first step. And one would think that stripping them of all benefits – yes, terrorists and their families still receive state benefits! – as well as those found to have ANY hand in aiding and abetting, would be automatic!
FOR if punitive measures and deterrence are to factor in at all – as the leaders continuously and shrilly exclaim – why aren’t the forces ordered to lay siege to each and every village which houses them, so-called “collective punishment” be damned? Besides, what about the continuous punishment meted out to the Jewish majority by the Arab minority, as their towns are burnt to the ground and its residents forced to flee for their lives! Is it normal to allow the Arab sector to live in their homes, while Jews are relegated to refugee status in their homeland? Pray tell, who are the crazies?
LET’S get real: how many times have Allah’s Muslim Terrorists been threatened, only to realize that they can literally get away with killing Jews, still yet, look forward to one gift after another by Israel’s demented leaders? Readers, know that goodies are not only offered to PA Arabs to placate the savage beasts and to quiet down international anti-Semites, but to the entire Arab sector in Israel! Yes, the aforementioned increasingly growing fifth column.
Israel’s minister of construction signed a deal last week to build thousands of public housing units for the country’s Arab population.
MK Yoav Galant (Kulanu) agreed to allocate 1.41 billion shekels ($374 million) toward building public housing for Israeli Arabs and to lift restrictions from construction on private land, Ynet reported. The deal, which was reached with the heads of 15 local municipal Arab authorities, is set to facilitate the construction of 30,000 housing units on private and public land.
“Over the next 20 years, the Arab sector will require 200,000 apartments. During the last few weeks, we have made it a point to work side by side with the Arab leadership in a quick, transparent and equality-conscious process, the effects of which will shortly be visible on the ground,” said Galant. “Strengthening the Arab sector is a national interest.”
CONSEQUENTIALLY, why shouldn’t they wage jihad, knowing full well that nothing will be done to tamp down their quest to destroy Israel as the Jewish homeland? Rhetorical.
Judge: Rape facilitates a natural society where men are protectors
First federal case under female genital mutilation ban spurs efforts for harsher penalties
Minnesota state Rep. Mary Franson received a note from a friend last year urging her to draft stricter legislation against female genital mutilation. The state had banned the practice in 1994, so the Republican worried that a new law would seem “Islamophobic,” given its target audience.
One case changed her mind.
Federal prosecutors last month charged a Michigan doctor and his wife in connection with performing the procedure on two Minnesota girls. The parents of one girl — believed to have been involved in arranging the procedure — lost custody “for a whopping 72 hours,” Franson told lawmakers on the floor of the Minnesota statehouse last week.
Another Michigan doctor, Jumana Nagarwala of Detroit, has been charged in a separate case.
Now Franson wants Minnesota to pass a bill that would send perpetrators to prison for up to 20 years, targeting parents as well as doctors.
“We’re saying that if you harm your child in this way, you’re going to be held responsible,” she said.
Female genital mutilation has been a federal crime in the United States for more than two decades, carrying a maximum sentence of five years in prison. But the three doctors are the first to be charged under the law. The case has set off a flurry of new bills across the country, with a growing number of states moving to extend penalties to the parents and hit them with lengthy prison terms.
The issue has been a lightning rod in right-wing political circles for years, with anti-Muslim and anti-immigration activists linking it explicitly to Islam. In fact, there is no mention of female genital mutilation in the Koran, and the procedure is rare in most Muslim countries. But attorneys for the doctors, all three of whom are Muslim, say their trial defense next month is likely to invoke religious freedom, a move that is sure to lend the case even more political ammunition.
Republican-authored bills are pending in Michigan, Minnesota, Texas and Maine, and activists say Massachusetts is also weighing legislative action.
In Minnesota, which is among the 25 states that ban female genital mutilation, state representatives on May 15 voted 124 to 4 in favor of expanding the penalties. The bill will go to the state Senate for consideration, but it will probably be signed into law before the fall.
Female genital mutilation (FGM), sometimes called female genital cutting or circumcision, refers to the ancient, ritual practice of cutting off parts of a girl’s genitalia, and sometimes sewing shut the vaginal opening. It has no health benefits and can result in serious complications, including hemorrhaging and death, the lifelong loss of sexual pleasure, painful intercourse, and chronic infections.
The World Health Organization says more than 200 million women and girls living in 30 countries have experienced FGM. Most of those countries are in Africa.
The practice spans an array of ethnic and religious groups despite nearly universal national bans. Although the rationale for the practice varies, experts say it is often driven by social pressures to control women’s sexuality and ensure girls’ virginity before marriage. Some practitioners also believe that it serves a religious mandate, although the practice has no root in religious doctrine.
Some Muslim clerics have endorsed the practice, but a number of major Muslim leaders have condemned it. The three doctors in Michigan and the girls whom investigators say they cut are from the tiny Dawoodi Bohra sect of Shiite Islam, in which the practice is common and clerics are said to endorse it. The doctors’ trial is set for next month.
There’s no reliable data on how common the practice is in the United States, according to the authors of a 2016 Government Accountability Office report. But the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that about 513,000 women and girls in the United States either had the procedure or are at risk of experiencing it in the future, based on immigrant populations from countries where the practice is prevalent, including Somalia, Ethiopia and Sudan.
The Maine law would make parents who consent to FGM liable for up to 10 years behind bars. This month, the Texas state Senate unanimously approved a similar bill that would allow the state to prosecute people “who transport or permit the transport of a person for the purpose of FGM,” said the bill’s author, state Sen. Jane Nelson (R).
In Michigan, where the state Senate unanimously approved a package of bills on female genital mutilation May 17, perpetrators and accomplices would face up to 15 years in prison.
“We want to send the message that Michigan is not the place to bring your daughter for this evil, horrific, demonic practice,” state Sen. Rick Jones (R) told his colleagues during a recent hearing on the measure.
The Department of Homeland Security, which is responsible for criminal investigations under the federal ban, is set to launch a pilot program next month that aims primarily to reduce FGM abroad by warning travelers of its illegality. The practice of taking girls abroad to be cut, sometimes called “vacation cutting,” was banned in 2013.
The program, Operation Limelight USA, will be limited to John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York, although officials said they are still drafting specifics on how it will work.
The fresh wave of attention has been bittersweet for the U.S.-based activists who have spent years campaigning to end a practice that they say is poorly understood and generally ignored by the public, law enforcement and U.S. officials.
“When things like this happen, people just want to focus on getting all states to penalize it. But there’s a bigger picture out here that we’re not focusing on,” said Jaha Dukureh, the founder of the Atlanta-based Safe Hands for Girls, a leading advocacy group against FGM.
Dukureh, who underwent the procedure as an infant in Gambia, said she would rather see education and outreach aimed at preventing the practice than punishment alone.
For instance, many activists, doctors and lawmakers have said they want better training for medical professionals so they can address the issue with pregnant women who have experienced FGM before they give birth to girls. And they want to see efforts to spread awareness of the procedure’s dangers in vulnerable schools and communities, enlisting the support of neighborhood and religious leaders in condemning it.
Somali American activists have been pushing legislators for funds to prevent the practice through education and outreach, said Minnesota state Rep. Susan Allen of the Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party.
“They have not gotten resources,” she said.
The United States banned female genital mutilation in 1997, and in 2003 banned the transport of a minor abroad to have the procedure. But there have been only two other FBI investigations into the practice over the past two decades. In both cases, the FBI was unable to find victims, and only one of the cases, in California, led to charges, according to the GAO report.
Experts say a culture of shame and secrecy — or even ignorance of having undergone a procedure that they might have been too young to remember — keeps many from talking about FGM in the United States.
Deborah Thorp, who is an obstetrician-gynecologist in Minneapolis, said she sees at least one patient a day who has undergone FGM. Many are older refugees from Somalia, where the prevalence rate is 98 percent.
But she said she doubts that the practice is common for Somali American children who are born in the United States.
“I’m seeing a lot of moms who are so angry that it got done to them that I have a hard time thinking that they would ever have anything to do with it,” she said.
Some activists and Democratic lawmakers have argued — in lieu of hard data about the prevalence of FGM — that racism, Islamophobia and anti-immigrant sentiments have played a role in fueling enthusiasm for the new policies.
Far-right blogs and news websites have long perpetuated the myth that FGM is a common Islamic practice by immigrants who are fundamentally at odds with American society.
FGM and honor killings “would not exist in the U.S. without mass immigration bringing its practitioners into U.S. communities,” Breitbart reporter Katie McHugh wrote in March. Stephen Miller, a top aide to President Trump, has voiced the same sentiment.
In Minnesota last week, some dissenting lawmakers worried that meting out “draconian” punishment for a poorly understood crime might make it worse. The Minnesota law would make it easier and more likely for the state to take custody of a child whose parent is suspected of involvement in FGM. For suspects who are not yet U.S. citizens, the crime would probably mean deportation.
“When you start removing children from their families, increasing penalties for families,” Allen, the state lawmaker, said, “it’s likely that it may deter them from reporting the violence. They may not cooperate with police.”
Second-generation male Muslim immigrants have all reason to hate Europe. They can't get any girls here. Whatever they do. So it is an understandable reaction that they want to blow themselves up, and take a few along.
Why blasting misogynists online actually works in their favour
The Globe and Mail
Canada, we’re being trolled.
Some 43,000 people have petitioned “pickup artist” Roosh V’s entry into Canada on grounds that he disseminates hate speech. Yesterday, Toronto Mayor John Tory denounced him before more than 67,000 followers on Twitter, while councillor Norm Kelly (followers: 91,000) warned venues not to host his talk this Saturday.
But do the math: the blogger (real name Daryush Valizadeh) attracted a paltry 34 men to his speech on “neomasculinity” in Montreal this past weekend.
While it’s commendable that critics are blasting a guy who once pushed for the legalization of rape, fear and loathing served up in 140 characters might not be the most productive conversation, and might actually be serving Roosh well.
The Canadian backlash has fuelled some serious publicity bluster for Valizadeh, who has self-published a series of “bang guides” to bedding women in various countries. It’s bloated his follower count, and Valizadeh’s been carefully tracking his own exposure on Twitter this week – along with baiting feminists after several women allegedly attacked him in Montreal, two reportedly dumping beer on his head.
“The best way of handling people like this of course is to try and ignore them,” Kelly acknowledged, before explaining that it was incumbent for him to speak out as a public official.
The pickup artist, or PUA, community remains a relatively small subculture of men who hope to get laid more often. They plan to achieve this by poring over “seduction manuals” and attending bootcamps that force shy guys out of their shells. Popularized in part by Neil Strauss’s The Game, some PUA techniques are psychologically off-putting, including “negging,” which consists of mildly teasing or criticizing a woman so her self-confidence drops and she somehow becomes intrigued (the grade-school equivalent is letting a girl know you like her by kicking her).
Recently though, the PUA community has spouted more odious fare. In February, Valizadeh penned a bizarre and troubling blog post titled “How to Stop Rape,” arguing that the legalization of rape on private property would make women more vigilant with strange men at frat parties. Never mind that most women are raped by someone they know, and very few report it. Using some seriously fuzzy logic, Valizadeh argued that in order to stamp out sexual violence, it’s up to women to show “self-control” and “make adult decisions about their bodies.” It’s outdated rhetoric we’ve heard before, sometimes from women, no less.
Almost immediately, Valizadeh was beaten back by a vocal community of feminists online. (The pickup artist was not available for an interview before deadline, but tweeted at Tory, “Mr. Mayor, my speech doesn’t promote violence, harassment, or hate against any group. You were lied to about me.”)
In a foreshadow to this debacle, Australia banned pickup artist Julien Blanc last November. A photo that showed his hands around a woman’s throat went viral under the hashtag #ChokingGirlsAroundtheWorld. Canadians protested him too, getting the Immigration Minister’s attention, with Blanc eventually cancelling planned speaking dates here.
Blanc’s “techniques” are disgusting, juvenile and misogynist, definitely. But as Maclean’s columnist Emma Teitel pointed out at the time, his detractors scored him more airtime than he’d ever enjoyed before. Feminists were failing to distinguish between “what’s idiotic, what’s lecherous, and what’s criminal,” wrote Teitel. “Not all pickup artists are equal; and very few of them are the spawn of the devil.”
Those who rail against Blanc and Valizadeh counter that they’re concerned about how misogynist content plays into the mindset of more violent men like Elliot Rodger and John Houser, who opened fire and killed two women at a screening of Amy Schumer’s film Trainwreck in Lafayette, La., last month.
With the current climate, it will be interesting to see if a prolific chauvinist like Roosh V will get run out of town. If not, protesters will no doubt be keenly watching whether anyone will host his “The State of a Man” address in Toronto this weekend (he is keeping venue details under wraps until Friday).
Ultimately though, the gender war that’s been fomented between PUAs and feminists isn’t really indicative of modern male-female dynamics – men and women who work, play, live and raise children together, whose long-term relationships likely weren’t forged over carefully crafted disses.
Most well-adjusted men don’t bone up on misogynist mind games before heading out to the bar, and most women have enough self-respect to turn the bar stool away from a neg. For those who don’t, maybe we should focus the conversation on them – not another chafing, Twitter-metric scanning PUA.
You probably have to look at imagery of death and dying regularly to stay focused on what really counts in life: great sex before you are gone anyway.
Childhood and sexuality
Any statement about children and sex is almost guaranteed to be controversial. In modern Western societies, children are set apart from the rest of the population, regarded as a special population with special needs. Many rules and conventions exist to define sex as the preserve of adults: age of consent laws, selective censorship practices, and the labeling of books as erotic literature. These are the outward signs of the taboo surrounding children and sex. This book considers 1) whether we learn how to be sexual or whether sexuality is in-born, 2) whether childhood is a natural or a social state, 3) how and why adults conceal sex from children and what its consequences are, 4) if children are sexual beings and, if so, in what sense, and 5) whether it is possible or desirable to make changes in the way we deal with children and sex. This book is an attempt to break the silence that surrounds the subject of children and sex, to explore hidden fears and anxieties, to expose unspoken assumptions. Parents, teachers, and all those involved in caring for children may find it useful.
Feminism is dangerous because it erodes functional hierarchical structures of society. Let feminism have its ways, and you end up with all and everything being a mess.
Getting to know ED
HealthHome > Lifestyle > Health
Sunday, 24 November 2013
Facts and fallacies about erectile dysfunction (ED).
ERECTILE dysfunction (ED) is the inability to achieve or maintain an erection of the penis, which is satisfactory for sexual intercourse. Being a taboo subject, there are many myths circulating around that are worsened by men not talking openly about it with their doctors.
Here are some of the common misconceptions about this condition.
ED affects only elderly men
Although the majority of men affected by ED are elderly, younger men are not exclusively exempted. In Malaysia, data collected to date are for men above 40 years of age, and it showed a higher prevalence among men above 60 years of age.
However, in a study done in Brazil, the prevalence rate was 35% in men 18-40 years of age.
So if you are young and have ED, do not fret. You are not alone.
If you are above 40 years, up to 50% of men in Malaysia share your problem. In fact, in a recent local study, the prevalence of ED in those above 40 years of age was 69.5%.
ED is not dangerous or life-threatening
While it is true that ED on its own does not lead to death, it is actually an indicator of other underlying diseases that can shorten your life.
It has been proven that ED predicts coronary artery disease, with a lead time of two to five years. In other words, if you have ED, you are at risk of a heart attack in two to five years.
Therefore, if you have ED, you should be examined for the health of your heart as well. Both are equally important to men.
The presentation of ED by men in the clinic is an opportunity for doctors to screen for other diseases associated with it, and these include diabetes mellitus, testosterone deficiency syndrome, hypertension and high cholesterol levels (hyperlipidaemia).
ED is the partner’s fault
ED is not to be blamed on the partner for not being attractive anymore. Although psychological factors do affect ED, there are other physiological or organic factors involved as well. These include diseases affecting the blood vessels and/or the nerves supplying the penis.
Often, men shy away from sex when they are unable to perform, and this can construed by their partners that they are not attractive any more. This misconception can lead to relationships breaking down.
Men with ED have no sexual desire
This is not entirely true. Men with ED usually do have the desire, but due to the underlying disease affecting the blood vessels or nerves, they are unable to perform.
There are men with ED who lack desire. These men either have low levels of testosterone or are affected psychologically by stress or emotion.
Masturbation causes ED
There is no concrete evidence for this.
In normal men, erection is automatic
This is not true. Men need stimulation for sexual erection. Non-stimulated erection may occur during sleep or on awakening in the morning, but this is not related to sex.
There is also a refractory period before men can have an erection again, and this can last from minutes in younger men to days in older men. This is not ED.
An erection means men want sex
Again, this is not true. Men may experience a normal physiological erection during sleep or on getting up in the morning. It is not always related to sexual activity.
ED needs extensive investigations and treatment is usually delayed
ED is diagnosed through doctors asking you some simple questions (taking a history). A questionnaire known as the International Index of Erectile Function (IIEF) may be used.
A physical examination and some blood tests will follow to detect any other associated diseases. Treatment will usually then be given.
Only in certain complex cases, and this is very rare, will further tests like a Duplex ultrasound, cavernosogram or nocturnal penile tumescence test, be needed.
The first step in treatment is lifestyle modification, and this includes maintaining an ideal body weight, cessation of smoking, moderate exercise and a balanced diet.
This on its own may improve ED. Needless to say, blood pressure, sugar and cholesterol needs to be controlled. Any psychological factors such as stress need to be tackled as well.
The next step is oral medication (tablets to be swallowed). Phosphodiesterase-5 (PDE-5) inhibitors such as sildenafil, vardenafil and tadalafil, are effective in 80% of cases.
Caution is needed for those with heart problems. They will need to be assessed carefully by the doctor. If the heart disease is deemed mild, they can be given PDE-5 inhibitors.
In moderately severe cases, further tests will be required, while those who have severe disease should not be taking such drugs.
Those on nitrate medications also cannot be given PDE-5 inhibitors.
The other treatment options are injection of medication (like prostaglandin) directly into the penis using a small needle and syringe, using a vacuum pump device or inserting a penile prosthesis (requiring surgery).
Treatment is only temporary and the condition can be cured
This is another misconception where some people think that taking just one magical pill will solve it all. If lifestyle modification does not help and taking medication is required, you will probably need to continue taking the medication as long as you want to have erections.
The only exception is if it is solely psychological in nature, where counselling or behavioural therapy may cure the problem, and further treatment may not be required.
Circumcision reduces ED
There is no evidence that circumcision reduces ED.
ED treatment increases the size of the penis
This is another misconception. ED treatment solves erection, i.e. rigidity and hardness. It does not increase the length or size of the penis.
Traditional treatment is cheaper and much better than seeing a doctor
Unapproved medications are risky and may contain substances that are detrimental to health. It is not worth the risk. Most of these medications have not undergone stringent tests, and unlike conventional medication prescribed by doctors, have not been proven effective by robust trials.
In a review by Ho et al., most of the herbal treatments for ED were tested in animals, and only yohimbine, ginseng and butea superba were tested in humans.
ED can be helped. An open discussion with the doctor, especially a urologist, would be beneficial. Do not be embarrassed.
Men with micro penises have a clear agenda: castrate all men with big dicks. Let horses fuck women who complain.
