The Fault, Dear Feminists, Lies Not Within Your Stars…

…but in your lies about the names of stars.
By : A recent man-hating article in The Atlantic by one Leila McNeill impugned the reputations of astronomers and cosmologists throughout the ages for the names given to stars, planets, or other objects associated with observations of the universe.
The Washington Examiner summarized her article well:
Leila McNeill wrote in an article republished in The Atlantic magazine on Tuesday that the skies are “still filtered through this tradition of mythic misogyny.” She said many constellations “named after men tell stories of heroism and conquest,” while women are more frequently portrayed as “either monsters or domestic nurturers.”
She said ancient Roman and Greek mythology is “deeply misogynistic” because male deities “rein [sic] with unlimited power while their female counterparts suffer violence and humiliation.” McNeill also claimed modern-day astronomers who draw on this tradition to name celestial bodies and spacecraft contribute to a “scientific culture that diminishes the achievements of women.”
Now, normally when feminists enter into the science of astronomy it is to criticize the fashion choices of male astrophysicists

5 Questionable Clinton-Related Deaths In 2016

Rachel Blevins covers five deaths from 2016 that have all had ties to Bill and Hillary Clinton.

The Financial Times: Megaphone For Mass Murder

Introduction: The Financial Times editorial page carries a logo that proclaims: “Without fear and without favour”. Indeed the editors have shown no fear when it comes to. . . fabricating lies, promoting imperial wars decimating countries and impoverishing millions, whether in Libya, Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, Yemen and now Venezuela. The fearless “Lies of Our Times” have been at the forefront forging pretexts for inciting imperial armies to crush independent governments.
By James Petras: Despite its pretentious scribblers and prestigious claims, the FT is seen by the Anglo-American financial class as a belligerent purveyor of militarist policies designed for the most retrograde sectors of the ruling elite. What is most striking about the FT fearless fabrications on behalf of imperial militarism is how often their political and economic prognostications have been incompetent and flat out wrong.
For the past ten years, the FT editorial pages have described China in economic crisis and heading for a fall, while in reality, the Chinese economy has grown at between eight and six percent a year.
For over a decade and a half, the FT editors claimed Russia under President Vladimir Putin presented an international existential threat to ‘the West’. In fact, it was the ‘Western’ armies of NATO, which expanded military operations to the borders of Russia, the US, which financed a neo-fascist coup in Kiev and the US-EU which promoted an Islamist uprising in Syria designed to totally undermine Russia’s influence and relations in the Middle East.

Giving Up On Love - MGTOW

Sandman: "Men choosing MGTOW who have lots of resources and social skills to interact with women but are just tired of being lied to, used and cheated on by money whores who would not give you the time of day if you had a regular job. It seems that some people try to paint everyone who has decided MGTOW is for them as a loser living in their parents basement playing video games all day with no real purpose in life. I earn well over 300 thousand dollars per year, travel internationally for my work and it is not a problem for me to meet and date women.

Carried Away


The Warmongering Dumbed-Down New York Times

A New York Times columnist writes Americans are so “dumbed-down” that they don’t know that Russia “invaded” Ukraine two years ago, but that “invasion” was mostly in the minds of Times editors and other propagandists, says Robert Parry.
By Robert Parry: In a column mocking the political ignorance of the “dumbed-down” American people and lamenting the death of “objective fact,” New York Times columnist Timothy Egan shows why so many Americans have lost faith in the supposedly just-the-facts-ma’am mainstream media.
Egan states as flat fact, “If more than 16 percent of Americans could locate Ukraine on a map, it would have been a Really Big Deal when Trump said that Russia was not going to invade it — two years after they had, in fact, invaded it.”
But it is not a “fact” that Russia “invaded” Ukraine – and it’s especially not the case if you also don’t state as flat fact that the United States has invaded Syria, Libya and many other countries where the U.S. government has launched bombing raids or dispatched “special forces.”  Yet, the Times doesn’t describe those military operations as “invasions.”



Facebook Just Got A Whole Lot Creepier

By Michael Krieger: I’ve been creeped out by Facebook for a long time now. The following story takes it to another level.
From Fusion:
While some of these incredibly accurate friend suggestions are amusing, others are alarming, such as this story from Lisa*, a psychiatrist who is an infrequent Facebook user, mostly signing in to RSVP for events. Last summer, she noticed that the social network had started recommending her patients as friends—and she had no idea why.
“I haven’t shared my email or phone contacts with Facebook,” she told me over the phone. 
The next week, things got weirder.

Most of her patients are senior citizens or people with serious health or developmental issues, but she has one outlier: a 30-something snowboarder. Usually, Facebook would recommend he friend people his own age, who snowboard and jump out of planes. But Lisa told me that he had started seeing older and infirm people, such as a 70-year-old gentleman with a walker and someone with cerebral palsy.

How The Chinese Government Muzzles Freedom Of Expression In Canada

At least part of the message is beyond dispute: the cash flowing out of China into assets around the world has hit tsunami proportions, driven by fears of a slowing economy and a declining currency. Estimates peg the amount Chinese investors and companies moved out of the country last year at nearly $1 trillion, up more than sevenfold from 2014. Much of that money is being spent by Chinese companies looking to snap up Western assets, such as ChemChina’s US$43-billion bid to take over Swiss seed company Syngenta, or to pay down U.S. dollar-denominated debts. But a sizable portion was directed into overseas real estate.
The frenzy has taken a visible toll on one of the world’s “most livable cities,” resulting in hollowed-out neighborhoods, absentee investors, and vacant, decrepit homes as huge numbers of investment properties simply sit unoccupied. What statisticians have been slow to chart has been ruefully documented in popular blogs like Vancouver Vanishes and Beautiful Empty Homes of Vancouver, which tracks empty, multi-million-dollar character and heritage houses.

How To Survive A False Rape Accusation

Can Americans Overthrow The Evil That Rules Them?

By Paul Craig Roberts: Paul Wolfowitz and the lies that he told in the high government positions that he held are responsible for a massive number of deaths and massive destruction in seven countries. Wolfowitz has announced his vote for Hillary Clinton. Does this make you feel reassured?
The real surprise would have been Wolfowitz’s announcement in favor of Donald Trump. So why was what was expected news?
Trump has said that he doesn’t see any future in the conflict Washington has initiated with Russia, and Trump questions the point of NATO’s continuing existence. These peaceful attitudes make Trump into a “national security risk” according to Wolfowitz. What Wolfowitz means is that a peace candidate is a threat to Wolfowitz’s doctrine of US world hegemony. In the crazed mind of Wolfowitz and the neoconservatives, America is not safe unless it rules the world.
Hillary is a warmonger, perhaps the ultimate and last one if she becomes president, as the combination of her hubris and incompetence is likely to result in World War 3. On July 3, 2015, Hillary declared: “I want the Iranians to know that if I’m president, we will attack Iran. . . . we would be able to totally obliterate them.” http://www.globalresearch.ca/hillary-clinton-if-im-president-we-will-attack-iran/5460484?print=1 The crazed Hillary went on from this to declare the President of Russia to be “the new Hitler.” Little doubt she thinks she can obliterate Russia also. Hillary is the one who brought zionist neocon Victoria Nuland into the State Department to oversee the US coup in Ukraine in order to create more propaganda against Russia and force Washington’s European vassals to impose sanctions and place military bases on Russia’s borders, thus provoking a nuclear power and raising dangerous tensions.

Erdogan Calls Putin As Russia Seethes At Turkey’s Syrian Incursion

By Alexander Mercouris: Russia furious at Turkish move to set up rebel “safe zone” inside Syria to assist Jihadi rebels there, putting the recently announced “normalisation of relations” between Russia and Turkey in jeopardy. 

In the immediate aftermath of the Turkish capture of Jarablus in Syria Turkish President Erdogan telephoned his “friend Putin” on Friday 27th August 2016.
The Kremlin’s account of the conversation is remarkable even by its standards for its terseness
“The two leaders discussed the development of Russia-Turkey trade and political and economic cooperation in keeping with the agreements reached in St Petersburg on August 9.  Vladimir Putin and Recep Tayyip Erdogan exchanged opinions on developments in Syria and pointed out the importance of joint efforts in fighting terrorism.  They agreed to continue their dialogue on the issues of the bilateral and international agenda.”
The true subject of the discussion will in fact have been the Turkish capture of Jarablus in northern Syria.
Whilst it seems the Turks did inform the Russians of this move in advance, it is clear that the Russians are to put it mildly unhappy about it.

Germany Sells Out Of Safes As Savers "Lose Faith In Banks"

By Tyler Durden: It is no secret that one of the most admirable qualities of the German public - in addition to its striking propensity for thrift in the aftermath of Weimar - is its stoic patience and pragmatism when dealing with adversity. However, over the past month, we grew increasingly confident that said patience would be tested, if only when it comes to matters of monetary trust vis-a-vis the local, neighborhood bank. First it was the news that Raiffeisen Gmund am Tegernsee, a German cooperative savings bank in the Bavarian village of Gmund am Tegernsee, with a population 5,767, finally gave in to the ECB's monetary repression, and announced it’ll start charging retail customers to hold their cash. Then, just last week, Deutsche Bank's CEO came about as close to shouting fire in a crowded negative rate theater, when, in a Handelsblatt Op-Ed, he warned of "fatal consequences" for savers in Germany and Europe - to be sure, being the CEO of the world's most systemically risky bank did not help his cause.
That was the last straw, and having been patient long enough, the German public has started to move. According to the WSJ, German savers are leaving the "security of savings banks" for what many now consider an even safer place to park their cash: home safes.
Indeed, as even the WSJ now admits, for years, "Germans kept socking money away in savings accounts despite plunging interest rates. Savers deemed the accounts secure, and they still offered easy cash access. But recently, many have lost faith."

Boys And Girls: Our Future STEM-Soldiers

By : Our world is witnessing dramatic change: While civilization is advancing at lightning speed, we are also on the razor’s edge of a catastrophe caused by shortages of natural resources, food, commodities, and water. Unless we tap the knowledge, abilities, and energy inside each of us, especially those who represent our next and future generations, the very existence of the human race may be at risk.
To address this threat and ensure the right steps are taken, our approach must be inclusive. Indeed, some are already responding to the challenge by making sure that young females are being educated and trained in areas that will prove critical in future–namely, the sciences, technology, engineering, and math, or STEM. Among others, the American Office of Science and Technology Policy, in collaboration with the White House Council on Women and Girls, have pushed hard for funding, programs, and facilities that will ensure female participation.
But women aren’t the only ones at risk of being unprepared. In fact, while many might believe that males, especially young boys, don’t need this kind of support, it is just not true. It is imperative that they also get prepared to do their part. Unfortunately, this is not happening to the extent it should–and must.

Casting Out The Rightwing Dysfunction #MGTOW

By : Alexander MGTOW has given his thoughts on some of the ideological factionism that has dogged the MGTOWsphere in recent years, in particular on what he views as the more extreme elements of right-wing ideology that have dominated conversations.

Anti-Feminism Australia: In a recent article she said the following:

"They (women) are making frivolous complaints and it's time that our court system (is looked at) - especially for men who are the subject of domestic violence themselves.
"Men have nowhere to go - (domestic violence against males) is very widely spread.

Martianus Capella, Updated: The Marriage Of Gynecology And Hercules

: “You provide the flowers at wedding ceremonies. You offer, they say, the most exquisite arrangements, so necessary for a memorable day, that day that joins the fighting couple in a legal embrace. The wedding transformation, though unnecessary to collect sex payments, pervades the gynocentric universe, associates a cloud of myth with specific bodies, and naturalizes the imagining of the sexes reconciled in loving loyalty. O famous Special Day Wedding Services, you who are most beloved of brides, you know that desire for photos of your services burns in their faces. Whether pays a father, or a single mother, or three love-besotted women determined to adorn the venue as well as any other parents have, honor Cybele, the great mother goddess. She implores you, despite your full business schedule, to find an opening to inspire a woman to marry my son.”
While I was praying this silly, popular wedding prayer and pondering something or other unexpected and heretofore unattempted, my son Martianus, not tolerant that a head grayed with a son living with his father for five-score years should chatter fatuous marketing fodder, interrupted me, saying, “Why is it, my father, that you hasten to sing of things no girlfriend of mine has ever proposed?

"I’ve Never Seen Anything Like This Before" - The US Housing Markets In The Hamptons, Aspen And Miami Are All Crashing

By Tyler Durden: One month ago, we said that "it is not looking good for the US housing market", when in the latest red flag for the US luxury real estate market, we reported that sales in the Hamptons plunged by half and home prices fell sharply in the second quarter in the ultra-wealthy enclave, New York's favorite weekend haunt for the 1%-ers.
Reuters blamed this on "stock market jitters earlier in the year" which  damped the appetite to buy, however one can also blame the halt of offshore money laundering, a slowing global economy, the collapse of the petrodollar, and the drastic drop in Wall Street bonuses. In short: a sudden loss of confidence that a greater fool may emerge just around the corner, which in turn has frozen buyer interest. 
A beachfront residence is seen in East Hampton, New York, March 16, 2016.
We concluded this is just the beginning, and sure enough, several weeks later a similar collapse in the luxury housing segment was reported in a different part of the country. As the Denver Post reported recently, high-end sales that fuel Aspen’s $2 billion-a-year real estate market are evaporating,

Utopia, Nostalgia And The Jew

By Gilad Atzmon: Utopia, the imaginary ideal society, the Eden of collective and universal yearning is at the root of Left and progressive thought. A utopian society is the political and social goal of some leftist and progressive narratives. For others the perfect society is itself the ideological means toward redemption. No left or progressive intellectual narrative is impervious to some sort of utopian ideal. 
But for about half of the American people, utopia is nostalgic.  The return of the ‘American Dream,’ of being great once again – this is the idyllic dream shared by supporters of both Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders.
The history of ideas has seen this transition before.  The Jewish Cultural Marxists of the 1930s were shocked by a similar development.  Wilhelm Reich and other prominent members of the Frankfurt School were bewildered by the success of National Socialism and Fascism. They couldn’t figure out how was it possible that the German and Italian workers favoured ‘reactionary’ fascism over a ‘communist utopia.’ 
In Germany in the 1930s, as in America 2016, it was nostalgia and romanticism that gave utopia meaning, the yearning for a national rootedness over a ‘progressive’ Shangri La.

Gay People Not 'Born That Way,' Sexual Orientation Not Fixed - US Study

RT: A cross-discipline study has challenged the belief that human sexuality and gender identity are determined by biology and remain fixed, saying that there is no scientific proof of this. The study cautioned against drastic medical treatment for transgender children.
The notion that sexual orientation is predetermined by biology is an important part of the current LGBT discourse. If a person has no choice over whether to be gay or not, society cannot demand that he or she be straight, so the argument goes.
But regardless of its political worth, the “born this way” paradigm is not backed up by sufficient scientific data,

Book Review: Stalin’s Secret Agents: The Subversion Of Roosevelt’s Government

By Scott Free: I started this book several times and kept putting it down because the politics of the authors bled through so quickly that I could tell I wasn’t going to agree with their spin on history.  Evans seems promising enough, having penned the re-habilitating book about Joe McCarthy “Blacklisted by History”.  The other author is a little more hurting for credibility having worked in US propaganda operations and as staff of the “House Intelligence Committee”.
            The authors posit a titanic struggle between the “West” and the emergent Soviet communist “power” whom sent spy after spy into the US penetrating the highest ranks of the US government.  Though this book was written in 2012 it fails to mention any of the work of Antony Sutton who wrote “Wall Street and the Bolshevik Revolution” back in 1974; in which he decisively shows that the Bolshevik’s were backed by Wall Street Banks and the revolution was largely hatched from 120 Broadway NY, NY(Big claim, but backed up with documents and evidence).
            The authors could not be faulted for failing to consult another book… “Against Our Better Judgment: The hidden history of how the U.S. was used to create Israel” by Alison Weir in which she also decisively shows that the US government had been very heavily penetrated by Zionists who were hell bent on creating the Golem  “Israel”.

The US: A Dead Nation Walking

By Paul Craig Roberts: Here is an informative article by Dmitry Orlov: http://www.cluborlov.com
I use the writings of Orlov and The Saker as checks on my own conclusions.
In his article Orlov concludes that the United States is a dead nation, still walking, but no longer a uni-power. I agree with Orlov that US weapon systems are more focused on profits than on effectiveness and that Russia has superior weapons and a superior cause based on protection rather than dominance. However, in his assessment of the possibility of nuclear war, I think that Orlov under-appreciates the commitment of Washington’s Neoconservatives to US world hegemony and the recklessness of the Neoconservatives and Hillary Clinton. Washington is incensed that Russia (and China) dare to stand up to Washington, and this anger crowds out judgment.
Orlov, also, I think, under-estimates the weakness in the Russian government provided by the “Atlanticist Integrationists.” These are members of the Russian elite who believe that Russia’s future depends on being integrated with the West. To achieve this integration, they are willing to sacrifice some undetermined amount of Russian sovereignty.
It is my conclusion that Washington is aware of the constraint that the desire for Western acceptance puts on the Russian government and that this is why Washington, in a direct thrust at Russia, was comfortable orchestrating the coup that overthrew the elected Ukrainian government. I believe that this constraint also explains the mistakes the Russian government made by refusing the requests of the Donetsk and Luhansk republics to be reincorporated as parts of Russia, where the territories formerly resided, and by the premature withdrawal from Syria that allowed Washington to resupply the jihadists and to insert US forces into the conflict, thus complicating the situation for Russia and Syria.

Holodomor - Terror Under The Jewish Bolshevik Forced Famine In Russia - 1921-1923

Zionist Report: The horror of Lenin’s 'Red Terror' cumulating in Russia’s forced Famine (1921-23) and Ukraine’s 1st Holodomor (1921-22) served as a template for a second and third culling of Europe’s population. The 2nd Holodomor took place in 1932-1933, while the 3rd coincided with the murder of innocent European soldiers in 1946-1947. Excluding Russia's multiple forced famines, the death toll of Ukraine's 3 Holodomors exceeds 16.5 million.

Trump v. Hillary: A Summation

By Paul Craig Roberts: The US presidential election this November will tell whether a majority of the US population is irredeemably stupid. If voters elect Hillary, we will know that Americans are stupid beyond redemption.
We don’t know much about Trump, and anti-Trump propaganda rules in the place of facts.
But we know many facts about Hillary. We know about her violation of classification laws and the refusal of the Democratic administration to do anything about it. The Democrats prefer to control the White House than to enforce the law, another nail in the coffin in which the rule of law in the US lies.
We know from their words and deeds and material success that the Clintons are agents for Wall Street, the Big Banks, the military/security complex, Israel, agribusiness, and the extractive industries. Their large personal fortune, approximately $120 million, and the $1,600 million in their foundation, much of which came from abroad in exchange for political favors, attests to the unchallengable fact that the Clintons are agents for the oligarchy that rules America, indeed, that rules the American Empire from Australia and Japan, through North America and Western and Eastern Europe to the Russian border.

Increasing Number Of Americans Are ‘Mircodosing’ On Psychedelics To Enhance Mental Performance

Whenever an irrational and inhumane law remains on the books far longer than any thinking person would consider appropriate, there’s usually one reason behind it: money.
Unsurprisingly, the continued federal prohibition on marijuana and its absurd classification as a Schedule 1 drug is no exception. Thankfully, a recent study published in the journal Health Affairs shows us exactly why pharmaceutical companies are one of the leading voices against medical marijuana. It has nothing to do with healthcare and everything to do with corporate greed.
– From last month’s article: The Real Reason Pharma Companies Hate Medical Marijuana (It Works)
This isn’t my typical kind of article. Normally, I’d include something like this in my links post, but as I continued reading this piece it became apparent this is one of the most fascinating things I’ve read all year.
What follows are excepts from the Wired article, Would You Take LSD to Give You a Boost at Work? WIRED Takes a Trip Inside the World of Microdosing. I strongly suggest reading the entire thing.

Why I Left Canada And Became A Citizen Of The Dominican Republic

Many might ask, why would a Canadian citizen want to become a citizen of the Dominican Republic?
The answer is actually quite long and lengthy.
To begin with, as an anarcho-capitalist, I consider governments to be illegitimate and taxation to be theft.  However, the entire world, unfortunately, is covered in statism like a giant skin rash… and so, then, the next best option if you want to live somewhat of a normal life and be able to travel is to become a citizen of the best country that suits your personal needs.
I was born in Canada but I would never say I am a “proud Canadian”.  The reason is that you cannot be proud of something you had nothing to do with.  I was just born there… and that made me a Canadian citizen. Apparently, I owed the government about half of whatever I make in my life for that “privilege”.

Lads! Britain Needs You To Do Your Duty And Get Flirting

'After 50 years of browbeating men, women wonder why men don’t flirt with them any more. And women think they are the more intelligent sex!!!' - MB J4MB
By Charlotte Gill: There are lots of things I love about Britain, just not its men.
And I don’t want to stereotype them all, so let me be more specific: I refer to those my own age, who have forced me to bookmark a cattery website. In the romantic arena, trying to meet a man sometimes makes me feel like David Attenborough, stepping into the jungle to locate a Jesus Lizard (a real thing).
Finding Mr Dreamy is difficult because the main strategies a girl can use are wrought with danger. Number one is proactivity: in 2016, it seems fair that a woman can approach a chap she fancies. This sometimes works, but generally does seem to make the man's insides shrivel up when asked “having a good night?” or something equally menacing.
So we consign ourselves to option two: waiting. Which is just as problematic, as nothing happens. That’s the conclusion my friend and I came to last week, while we were sitting at a bar. We’re hardly bad company and several lads gave us a cheeky stare as they did the toilet trot. Still, nothing happened, so we stared sadly into our Mojitos at single reflections.

UK Men’s Working Forum

By William Collins aka mra-uk: This very brief post is simply to bring to your attention an event which is being planned for the weekend of 29th & 30th October 2016, starting on the evening of Friday 28th. From the ad for the event,

The aims of the Forum are (i) to identify activities that would eradicate male inequalities, (ii) to build a national network of male activists based upon social interaction between, and personal knowledge of, individual members, and, (iii) to help the Men’s Movement project a more professional public and political front.
I have placed a copy of the flyer for the event here (pdf) and here (Word doc).
The event is primarily for men wishing to do something about male disadvantages.
It will take place in Bath. I urge you to attend if you have any interest in doing more than complaining.

No dark sarcasm in the classroom
Teachers leave them kids alone…
All in all it’s just another brick in the wall
All in all you’re just another brick in the wall.

-Pink Floyd, “Another Brick in the Wall"

By John W. Whitehead: The [US] nation’s young people have been given front-row seats for an unfolding police drama that is rated R for profanity, violence and adult content. - In Arizona, a 7-year-old girl watched panic-stricken as a state trooper pointed his gun at her and her father during a traffic stop and reportedly threatened to shoot her father in the back (twice) based on the mistaken belief that they were driving a stolen rental car.

The Term “Conspiracy Theory” Was Invented by the CIA In Order To Prevent Disbelief of Official Government Stories

Introduction by Paul Craig Roberts: Ron Unz reports below on the cold shoulder given to an extensively researched book that concludes that World War II hero General George Patton was murdered by the CIA because he became a powerful critic of Zionist Washington.
The book was ignored because the US media and public have been programmed to regard the US government as a truth-teller and those who expose government crimes as “conspiracy theorists.”
American Pravda: Was General Patton Assassinated?
: During the long Cold War many Russians grew sufficiently disenchanted with the lies and omissions of their own news outlets that they turned to Western radio for a glimpse of the truth.
The growth of the Internet has now provided Americans with a similar opportunity to click on a foreign website and discover the important stories that have somehow escaped the attention of their own leading journalists. Ironically, much of such “alternative media” coverage actually appears in the leading British newspapers, eminently respectable and published in our closest historic ally.
