Feminist Anita Sarkeesian On Colbert Report

Thunderf00t: An amazing contrast between how Stephen Colbert handled Suey Park vs Anita Sarkeesian.

Cowed By BBC Fem-Cops Humphrys Holds Up Saudis As Liberal Beacon

This time it was feminism’s turn to win the BBC’s special attention award – the one shared between the proponents of those well established anti-capitalist causes: climate change alarmism and anti-politics agendas.
Just case any of us reading the saner national newspapers were lucky enough to have missed the latest complaints of the equality fascists, no worries, the BBC was waiting to oblige and to earn some Brownie points to boot, with a feminist finale to its Today programme.
They’d been busy, John Humphrys told us, on the case of that impenetrable old canard, oops sorry, the glass ceiling.  Yes, he intoned, the world disgracefully is still run by men. But never fear, for last year the BBC addressed this problem on a global scale no less. It had identified 100 women from around the planet who have been working hard with their hammers to shatter it.
At its second annual 100 Women event, the BBC had named another set of wonder women (sorry, emerging opinion-formers) who had made ‘a significant contribution to advancing the status of women’.
Anyway, on account of this noble exercise, which conveniently chimed with the shocking findings of the World Economic Forum’s Global Gender Gap Report (yes you heard me –  Global Gender Gap Report) Today gave over its last ten minutes to the results of this survey, to the continuing iniquities of the gender gap and to the cure-all solutions of childcare and sex education.

Unequal Justice System - Max Keiser and Stacy Herbert with Dr. Bob Gill and Peter Bach

Max Keiser and Stacy Herbert look at the moral crisis of our time as they compare the treatment of a man on welfare benefits imprisoned for six weeks for stealing £12.60 worth of Salisbury steaks versus the High Frequency Trading outfit fined $1 million without any admission of guilt for stealing an unknown amount of money from other NASDAQ investors. This unequal system of justice has led to zombie capitalism which has gone off the rails and inspired ‘suicide bankers.’

Putin To Western Elites: Play-Time Is Over

ClubOrlov: Most people in the English-speaking parts of the world missed Putin's speech at the Valdai conference in Sochi a few days ago, and, chances are, those of you who have heard of the speech didn't get a chance to read it, and missed its importance. (For your convenience, I am pasting in the full transcript of his speech below.) Western media did their best to ignore it or to twist its meaning. Regardless of what you think or don't think of Putin (like the sun and the moon, he does not exist for you to cultivate an opinion) this is probably the most important political speech since Churchill'sIron Curtain speech of March 5, 1946.
 In this speech, Putin abruptly changed the rules of the game. Previously, the game of international politics was played as follows: politicians made public pronouncements, for the sake of maintaining a pleasant fiction of national sovereignty, but they were strictly for show and had nothing to do with the substance of international politics; in the meantime, they engaged in secret back-room negotiations, in which the actual deals were hammered out. Previously, Putin tried to play this game, expecting only that Russia be treated as an equal. But these hopes have been dashed, and at this conference he declared the game to be over, explicitly violating Western taboo by speaking directly to the people over the heads of elite clans and political leaders.
The Russian blogger chipstone summarized the most salient points from Putin speech as follows:

British Citizen Turns Himself In To Scotland Yard After PM Cameron’s Inflammatory UN Speech

Britain’s Prime Minister David Cameron Says “Non-Violent Conspiracy Theorists” Are Just As Dangerous As ISIS

“David Cameron told the U.N. that “non-violent extremism” is just as dangerous as terrorism and must be eradicated using all means at the government’s disposal.
He references 9/11 and 7/7 Truthers as examples of the type of extremism that must be dealt in a similar fashion to ISIS.
If you thought Obama’s War is Peace speech to the U.N. was creepy, wait until you get a load of this.
Cameron is officially announcing a the plan to use a full assault on dissenting views.”[1]

David Cameron Offends Every Seeker Of 9/11 And 7/7 Truth

By : When the Prime Minister of the ‘United’ Kingdom uses the bully pulpit of the United Nations General Assembly to browbeat the community of nations to squash reasonable and necessary inquiry into 9/11 Truth, something is very wrong.

Vladimir Putin Is The Leader Of The Moral World

By Paul Craig Roberts: Dear Friends, Vladimir Putin’s remarks at the 11th meeting of the Valdai International Discussion Club are worth more than a link in my latest column. These are the remarks of a humanitarian political leader, the like of which the world has not seen in my lifetime. Compare Putin to the corrupt war criminal in the White House or to his puppets in office in Germany, UK, France, Japan, Canada, Australia, and you will see the difference between a criminal clique and a leader striving for a humane and livable world in which the interests of all peoples are respected.
In a sane Western society, Putin’s statements would have been reproduced in full and discussions organized with remarks from experts such as Stephen F. Cohen. Choruses of approval would have been heard on television and read in the print media. But, of course, nothing like this is possible in a country whose rulers claim that it is the “exceptional” and “indispensable” country with an extra-legal right to hegemony over the world. As far as Washington and its prostitute media, named “presstitutes” by the trends specialist Gerald Celente, are concerned, no country counts except Washington. “You are with us or against us,” which means “you are our vassals or our enemies.” This means that Washington has declared Russia, China, India, Brazil and other parts of South America, Iran, and South Africa to be enemies.
This is a big chunk of the world for a bankrupt country, hated by its vassal populations and many of its own subjects, that has not won a war since it defeated tiny Japan in 1945 by using nuclear weapons, the only use of such terrible weapons in world history.

Child Poverty Jumps By 2.6 Million In Developed World Since 2008, While Number Of Global Billionaires Doubles

By Michael Krieger: Two headlines came across my screens today, which taken together pretty much sum up the effects of policy decisions made by Central Bankers and politicians since the financial crisis. The financial oligarchs got bailed out, and the rich got richer due to decisions made by “leaders” around the globe. As such, the entire planet has now been transformed into a neo-feudal tinderbox. Myself and countless others warned all the way back to 2008 that this is what would happen, and here you have it.
Let’s first examine the results from Oxfam’s report on the billionaire growth spurt. I hope all 1,645 of you have sent thank you notes to the patron saint of oligarchy: Ben Bernanke. From NBC:

The super-rich club has become less exclusive, with the amount of billionaires doubling since the financial crisis, according to a report from global charity Oxfam. There were 1,645 billionaires globally as of March 2014, according to Forbes data cited in the Oxfam report, up from 793 in March 2009.
The report ‘Even it Up: Time to End Extreme Inequality’ noted that the world’s richest 85 people saw their wealth jump by a further $668 million per day collectively between 2013 and 2014, which equates to half a million dollars a minute.
Unsurprisingly, this reverse Robin Hood policy of Central Banks and governments the world over has also resulted in increased poverty.

Lets Accuse Ezra Klein Of Rape + MR Fight Club - JTO v PE

"What they mean is fascist, but buy all means lets accuse him of rape because, that's apparently what he wants." johntheother
By Charles C. W. Cooke: If, in the modern era, a speaker proposes that one “cannot make an omelet without breaking eggs,” his audience can safely presume that he is joking. At one point, perhaps, it was deemed copacetic for leaders to off a few innocents in order for the living to get the right idea, but, in these more enlightened times, such displays are rather frowned upon. By all means make your case, our better angels enjoin. But keep the guiltless out of it.

JSIL (Israel) Recalls Envoy To Sweden Over Palestine Recognition

The apartheid Tel Aviv regime JSIL has recalled it's ambassador to Stockholm after Sweden's official recognition of the Palestinian state.
JSIL shill UK regulator BANNED Press TV: The JSIL Goyem Ministry announced on Thursday that it has recalled the regime’s ambassador to Stockholm for consultations with regard to the Scandinavian country’s decision to recognize the state of Palestine.
Meanwhile, the JSIL Goyem Minister Avigdor Lieberman spouted some spin at Sweden for what he called themiserable decision that strengthens the extremist elements and Palestinian rejectionism.''
It's a shame that the government of Sweden chose to take a declarative step that only causes harm,” added the JSIL official.
This is while Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas has praised Sweden for making the “brave and historic” decision.
"All countries of the world that are still hesitant to recognize our right to an independent Palestinian state based on 1967 borders, with East Jerusalem (al-Quds) as its capital, [should] follow Sweden's lead," Nabil Abu Rudeina, a spokesman for the Palestinian national unity government, quoted Abbas as saying.

The Wrath of Draghi: First German Bank Hits Savers with ‘Negative Interest Rates’

Retail and business customers with over €500,000 on deposit as of November 1 will earn a “negative interest rate” of 0.25%. In less euphemistic terms, they have to pay 0.25% per annum to the bank for the privilege of handing the bank their hard-earned money or their business cash.
Inflation has had a similar effect in the zero-interest-rate environment that the ECB and other central banks have inflicted on savers, but this time it’s official, it’s open, it can’t be hidden. Instead of lending your moolah to the bank so that the bank can lend it out to businesses and retail customers for all sorts of economically beneficial purposes, you’re financially better off hiding it in the basement. Grudging respect is due the ECB and other central banks: through the perverse regime of ZIRP, they have succeeded in transmogrifying “cash in bank” from an income-producing asset to a costly liability.
