VagBoosting: Birth Of A New Feminist Threat To Men

By : Feminists rarely give birth to new ideas, but one is budding in their wombs in a way that cries out for abortion.
Should men in STEM fields (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) be encouraging their women peers with vacuous praise? An emerging feminist trope is attempting to goad men into giving college women science students unexpected and possibly unwanted “attaboy” (attagirl?) acknowledgements in order, it is supposed, to stem the flow of women out of STEM classes. This nascent effort is laden with traps designed by feminists specifically to destroy men’s lives with false accusations of creating hostile environments for women.
College men need to hold their tongues and ignore this damseling dudgeon.
The new trope, which doesn’t even have a name yet, comes from a study by Dan Grunspan at the University of Washington about the gendered differences between how male and female students estimate each other’s competence and achievements. The results of this study were recounted in a badly written blog post in the WaPo by a man-hater named Danielle Paquette.
I’m going to dub the new problem mangrading and the proposed solution vagboosting.” But first, some background on the purported problem.
In the study, women predicted within a tight margin the grades of other students, while men tended to estimate the grades of their male peers as being higher than the actual grades.

London Bubble Trouble - Visas Issued To Wealthy Foreigners Plunge 84%

It appears the music may have finally stopped for one of the world’s largest luxury real estate bubbles: London.
It’s well known that foreign oligarchs love London real estate as a means to launder funds, typically “earnedby soaking their host countries dry via corruption and fraud. This has caused absurd and irrational spikes in high-end residential real estate in the English capital, as well as a flood of new construction.
With emerging markets now completely collapsing, the seemingly endless flood of foreign money is drying up, and with it, London real estate.
So has the London real estate bubble popped? Probably.
– From the September 9, 2015 article: Luxury London Home Sales Plunge 26% – Has this Mega Real Estate Bubble Finally Burst?
By Michael Krieger: London’s luxury property bubble seems to have popped sometime during the second half of last year, something I’ve written about repeatedly over the past several months.
One of the primary drivers behind the weakness in this “asset class” is a sharp reduction in the numbers of foreign criminals laundering money via London real estate.

Trident v Gas Chambers

By Gilad Atzmon: British press reported this week that, “Labour activists compared Britain’s missile defence system to gas chambers.”   The anti-war members of Labour’s CND distributed a memo reading“While no technology is ever ‘un-invented,’ we regularly see an end to use or production, particularly where a technology is outlawed for humanitarian or legal reasons, such as the gas chambers of the Second World War.”
 What an embarrassing convoluted statement from Corbyn’s supporters. Were gas chambers “outlawed" and for humanitarian reasons? Not really. As far as I am aware, the only laws concerning ‘Nazi gas chambers’ prohibit the denial of their existence. What made the anti war enthusiasts come up with such a bizarre statement? Were they attempting to score some kosher credentials by kneeling in front of the Holocaust God?  
 Lately it seems stupidity has become the entry card into the British Left. Labour MP Toby Perkins also tried to score a free gefilte fish. Unfortunately he had nothing more clever to offer. MP Perkins commented that it was “a crazy and offensive thing to say…there is no credible comparison between a self-defence nuclear deterrent and the gas chambers, which were not a weapon of war but a method of slaughter.” It is tough to imagine a statement remotely as idiotic as MP Perkins’.

"Is College Worth It?"

There's been a lot of talk about student loan debt and the cost of college this election cycle. I give my advice to high school students about college. Julie Borowski.

Puppet King Of Chaos

'Israel's permanent war system'
By Edward S. Herman: Diana Johnstone recently published a very good book on Hillary Clinton entitled Queen of Chaos (Counterpunch Books, 2015). Johnstone justifies the title through her convincing critical examination of Clinton’s performance as Secretary of State as well as her broader record of opinions and actions. But Clinton served under President Barack Obama, and the policies which she pushed while in office were of necessity approved by her superior, who worked with her in “a credible partnership”.1 And after Mrs. Clinton’s exit from office Mr. Obama carried on with replacement John Kerry in a largely similar and not very peaceable mode. Most important was their 2014 escalation of hostilities toward Russia with the coup d’etat in Kiev, anger at the responsive Russian absorption of Crimea, warfare in Eastern Ukraine, and U.S.-sponsored sanctions against Russia for its alleged “aggression.”

Migrant Crisis: The End Of The EU?

Migrants are on the rampage in Greece as they seek to enter Macedonia and parts north, ultimately to Germany. The Europeans are paying the price for their open-door welfare state migration policy and support for US interventionist foreign policy that lead to mass migrations. Is this the end of the political union?
