US Police Say Teen Shot Self in Head…While Handcuffed Behind Back

By Michael Krieger: Only in a nation of brain-dead sheep could police departments be getting away with such nonsense. Remember the forced anal probes that recently happened in New Mexico in an attempt to find non-existent drugs? You have to read this to believe it. Anyone got a borrow on The Onion? Permanent short.
From Salon:
A strange phenomenon has been occurring in police custody around the U.S., which seems to defy both the laws of physics and the limits of human physiology. Young people of color, handcuffed with their hands bound behind their backs, are able to shoot themselves in the head. For the critical observer, belief is beggared.
A Durham teen [17-year-old Jesus Huerta] died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head, Durham Police Chief Jose Lopez said…
“I know that it is hard for people not in law enforcement to understand how someone could be capable of shooting themselves while handcuffed behind the back,”

US Military Industrial Complex Is Mind-Bogglingly BIG

By David Gilson: Until Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.) and Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) rode to the rescue this week, Pentagon brass and their allies had been issuing dire warnings about the nation's military readiness: The armed services were being decimated, they said, by sequestration—the automatic budget cuts that were set to trim $1 trillion from the Pentagon budget over the next decade. "It's one thing for the Pentagon to go on a diet. It's another for the Pentagon to wear a straitjacket while dieting," grumbled Rep. Jim Cooper (D-Tenn.). The message got through: The House overwhelmingly approved the Ryan-Murray plan just two days after it was introduced.
But now, the Pentagon has once more gotten a reprieve from the budget ax: Under Murray and Ryan's congressional budget deal, the Pentagon will get an additional $32 billion, or 4.4 percent, in 2014, leaving its base budget at a higher level than in 2005 and 2006. (The US Department of Defense expects its total 2014 budget, including supplemental war funding, to be more than $600 billion.)

MGTOW: The Economics of Hypergamy

Demand For Male Disposability + Mangina Dialouges

By Stop Demand[1] is the name of a project, and a website.
This is nothing new. However it’s a particularly naked element of public hatred in an ongoing and escalating cultural war on the male half of the human race.
You remember men, right? They are the humans who are casually disposed of by every single nation in the world as the violence dispensing and absorbing tools of foreign policy; the ones who die in every society on earth earlier than their female contemporaries; the humans who commit suicide 4 times more often than women; the human beings comprising the majority of the homeless, and who are 70 to 80 percent of the victims of violent crime; the humans who happen to suffer the vast majority of trauma induced mental illness, and who do all the most dangerous, dirty and deadly jobs in the world, while living under a never-ending narrative vilifying their basic human identity.
You know who I mean now, right?

The ZioNazi Mugging Of America

MHRA's: A letter from Kenya

By : Justice for men & boys (and the women who love them) http://j4mb.org.uk has received a letter – well, OK, an email – from a Kenyan gentleman, Stephen Kamotho, which we found encouraging and interesting with respect to men’s and women’s rights in Kenya, and what the developed world could (and should) do to help protect men’s and boys’ rights in the developing world. For many years the developed world – through its governments and NGOs – has financed initiatives designed to advantage women at the expense of men in the developing world. Stephen’s letter takes up the rest of this piece, and is reproduced with his kind permission. His email address is at the end, should you wish to contact him. –MB
Firstly, I salute you on this initiative. I read your articles and couldn’t agree more that it’s about time we have a strong voice for men, especially in politics. Without people like you, gender oppression of men and boys would continue ad infinitum.
I am writing to applaud your great work in the gender arena, to introduce myself as a fan of your work and men’s rights supporter, and to give input into your party’s manifesto.
Since I am non-British (I am a Kenyan), I will give you the foreigner’s perspective and hopefully help shape your party’s policy on international gender issues.

Dent, Faber, Celente, Maloney, Rogers - What They Say Is Coming 2014

Earth From SpaceBy Michael Snyder: Some of the most respected prognosticators in the financial world are warning that what is coming in 2014 and beyond is going to shake America to the core.  Many of the quotes that you are about to read are from individuals that actually predicted the subprime mortgage meltdown and the financial crisis of 2008 ahead of time.  So they have a track record of being right.  Does that guarantee that they will be right about what is coming in 2014?  Of course not.  In fact, as you will see below, not all of them agree about exactly what is coming next.  But without a doubt, all of their forecasts are quite ominous.  The following are quotes from Harry Dent, Marc Faber, Gerald Celente, Mike Maloney, Jim Rogers and nine other respected economic experts about what they believe is coming in 2014 and beyond...
-Harry Dent, author of The Great Depression Ahead: "Our best long-term and intermediate cycles suggest another slowdown and stock crash accelerating between very early 2014 and early 2015, and possibly lasting well into 2015 or even 2016. The worst economic trends due to demographics will hit between 2014 and 2019. The U.S. economy is likely to suffer a minor or major crash by early 2015 and another between late 2017 and late 2019 or early 2020 at the latest."

Anonymity For Me but Not For Thee

AVoiceforMen: Currently we afford rape accusers anonymity. We only afford anonymity to the accuser for rape or other sexual crimes; we don’t do this for any other crime.
The rationale is that rape accusers face unique stigma for being seen as rape victims. Or rather they face the unique stigma of being accused of really having engaged in consensual sex.
As for the presumptively innocent men that they accuse… 
Well, who gives a fuck about men and the stigma they face.
