Hypocritical Indian Feminist Diplomat Arrested For VISA Fraud And Paying Slave Wages To Domestic Help.

By : It is a myth that empowered women are sympathetic to poor women. More women CEOs, Presidents or diplomats will in no way change the condition of poor women, just the way more male CEOs or Presidents do not make any difference to poor homeless men.
US Government followed its law and arrested Deputy Consul General of India at New York Devyani Khobragade for alleged Visa fraud, and for lying to the government, as she paid only $3.31 per hour to her Indian maid, much less than what is legally permissible in New York. She was strip searched as per standard procedures. Now, India’s Home Minister Sushil Shinde has gone crazy. India summoned US ambassador at New Delhi Nancy Powell to protest.
It is to be noted that India openly violates International Conventions and US laws by refusing to return US Citizen Children, who are illegally taken to India by one of the parents violating custody orders of US Courts. FBI lists this crime as parental kidnapping.
For example, if an Indian woman is married to an American citizen and the child is born in US, then, she cannot just fly to India carrying the child during a marital dispute as the child belongs to both parents and the child is a citizen of USA by birth. Only courts in the US have the right to decide about custody arrangements and well-being of a child since that child is a US citizen. International Conventions like the Hague Convention on this issue are very clear about it. The Indian Government violates these conventions openly, while it criticizes US Government for doing what is legal in their own country in this issue of low wages to maid.


Nimitz class carrier USS Ronald Regan
Veteran human rights lawyer Charles Bonner (left) has practiced law for 27 years, so by now he’s pretty good at it. Mr Bonner has been the lead attorney in over sixty-five jury trials involving civil rights cases, police misconduct, child protection and a myriad other attempts to protect the vulnerable poor from the mendacious rich. Now he is leading a class action lawsuit against TEPCO, the regulator/owner of the Fukushima nuclear energy plant.
bonnerBy John Ward: He’s unlikely to lose it, because he represents 75 sailors who came down with a host of medical problems, including cancers and leukemias, all kinds of gynaecological problems, and tumors on the brain. These service men and women are mainly young people in their early to mid twenties, and no one in their family had ever any of these kinds of illnesses before. Just since Bonner took the case, another 21 sailors have begun to show the same dire symptoms….of radiation sickness.
Their common link? They were all serving on board USS Ronald Reagan during a brief visit to the waters around Fukushima three years ago. As the Ronald Reagan desalinates all its water from the sea for drinking, bathing and other cleaning purposes, all the sailors were multiply exposed to radiation from the Fukushima accident. Calmed by the bollocks being put out about howharmlessthe radiation leakage was, these 75 service men and women now face death.

My 50 Top Stories About Men And Boys’ Inequality From 2013 (Part 1)….

1. We don’t spend equal amounts of money trying to cure male cancer
We’ve long known that we spend less time, money and energy trying to improve men’s health. In January the Prostate Cancer charity revealed that we are still spending 3x less money on  male cancer research than female cancer research, in spite of the gap being closed in recent years by the huge fundraising success of Movember. In the same month, new data revealed that men remain at significantly greater risk of developing cancer and dying from cancer.
2. Working class white boys are less likely to get to university
Also in January the Universities Minister, David Willetts, called on Universities to do more to help working-class white boys access further education after university applications from men fell by 22,000 and the university entry rate for men fell four times faster than the entry rate for women. Mary Curnock Cook, the head of the admissions service, Ucas, warned that men are becoming a disadvantaged group who are a third less likely to get to university. According to Cook the university gender gap will continue to grow and will be wider for boys and men from poorer backgrounds.

QE & AUSTERITY: Creosote tells it like it is….

By John Ward: Jurst a teeny-weeny leetell tapeur. Jurst a weffer-theen tapeur….
“Fuck off” said Wall Street bon viveur Lloyd Creosote.
Oooh goweerrn: juse wern leeterrl omoaeopatheek tapeur….
“Fuck off” repeated Wall Street bon viveur Lloyd Creosote, “I want my munneeee”.

“Yuss it fuckin’ well will,” Creosote answered, venomously spitting out bits of duck a l’orange, “Chicken Licken says so but more to the point, it is fuckin’ obvious that if you take my intravenous good-dosh-for-bad away, the markets will collapse and even more to the point so will my God-given right under the terms of the American Dream to a fuckin’ huge bonus”.
When I first saw the Monty Python Mr Creosote sketch at the cinema thirty years ago, I did discern the Western obesity message in there: but I never in my wildest dreams thought that he would come to represent some kind of mainstream norm in capitalism’s lexicon of characters.  Mr Creosote could equally well be questioned on this topic too:

Bitcoin Crashes After China Bans New Deposits; PBOC Gets DDOSed In Retaliation

Tyler Durden's pictureesterday it was the US Treasury's Financial Crimes Enforcement Network that tightened its grip on businesses that accept Bitcoin. Today, it is China, where the world's largest Bitcoin exchange by trading volume, BTCChina announced that he had received word from "above" that his platform would no longer be able to accept renminbi from BTC buyers. "As of right now, we have received notice from our third-party payment company that they will disallow customers from making deposits into our exchange," Bobby Lee, a former Yahoo developer who co-founded BTCChina this year, told the Financial Times.  The result, not surprisingly, is an overnight crash in BTC, which crashed by 50% from $900 two days ago to just $455 hours ago.

Samaras Crete Energy Sellout To Turks Confirmed , Greek Debt Misery Continues, Cyprus Find Announced

Secret cash flown into gas-rich Cyprus
Troika contractors strip the Greek corpse
How Berlin exaggerated Athens’ problem to win Europe
dubyakillBy John Ward: Senior Athens sources last night confirmed The Slog’s blogosphere exclusive from last Monday on the subject of 70% of the income from Cretian energy and rare earth finds off Crete going into non-Greek coffers. But further evidence of bribery and energy finds in Cyprus show yet again that Greece’s sphere of Mediterranean influence is merely an unwilling prize in the ongoing energy, banking and German hegemony game.
Said a senior Greek Government consultant yesterday:
“All I know is that the Professor [minerologist Antonis Foskolos] is absolutely correct. I have the technical reports to prove it…..there is a secret deal whereby Turkey gets 40%, Greece 30%, Cyprus 20% and Brussels 10%.”
The figure most likely to both alarm and anger Greeks of all class and age groups is the inexplicable (in justice terms) award of more income from the Crete find for Turkey than Greece. But this is really nothing more than those involved in the Cyprus energy heist sharing out the spoils….and cutting out both the Americans and the Israelis. Quite a coup for Erdogan.

NSA and GCHQ Goal is Elimination Of Individual Privacy Worldwide - Greenwald to EU

RT: The US NSA’s ultimate goal along with its UK partner, the GCHQ, is to eliminate individual privacy worldwide, journalist Glenn Greenwald has told an EU inquiry.

Glenn Greenwald (Reuters / Ueslei Marcelino)He criticized EU governments’ muted response to the revelations of the NSA’s mass espionage. Describing a reaction of “apathy and indifference” at reports normal citizens were being spied on, Greenwald said EU politicians only took action when they discovered they themselves were being targeted.

“I think western governments have inculcated people to accept that privacy does not really matter,” said Greenwald, adding it was to get populations accustomed to violations of their privacy.”

Greenwald, the former Guardian journalist known for publishing Edward Snowden’s leaks, testified before the European Parliament’s Committee on Civil Liberties and Home Affairs via video connection, contributing to an inquiry into the NSA’s surveillance on EU citizens.

“The NSA doesn’t need a specific reason to collect data on citizens’ communications,” said the journalist, reminding the panel that the agency’s ultimate goal is toeliminate individual privacy worldwide.”

Battle Over Snowden On CNN Between Greenwald And Toobin

The Young Turks: "A federal judge ruled Monday that the National Security Agency's phone records dragnet is unconstitutional, but does it vindicate Edward Snowden's leaks? Glenn Greenwald and CNN's Jeffrey Toobin clashed over that very question with Anderson Cooper Monday night, with Toobin arguing that Snowden had plenty of options other than leaking millions of documents to Greenwald...".* The Young Turks host Cenk Uygur breaks it down.

Let’s help her answer those, shall we?
 A peevish, grudging rancor against men has been one of the most unpalatable and unjust features of second- and third-wave feminism

US Academic Boycott Of Apartheid Israel Game Changer

The American Studies Association’s boycott of Israeli academic institutions is a landmark development and a game changer in an international effort to isolate the apartheid regime in Tel Aviv, a British political commentator says.
UK BANNED Press TV: Professor Jonathan Rosenhead, who is a member of the British Committee for Universities of Palestine, made the remarks during an interview on Tuesday.
On Sunday, the American Studies Association (ASA) approved the academic boycott of Israel to protest its treatment of Palestinians, indicating that a movement to isolate the apartheid regime of Israel that is gaining momentum in Europe has also hit the US.
"The ASA condemns the United States' significant role in aiding and abetting Israel's violations of human rights against Palestinians and its occupation of Palestinian lands through its use of the veto in the UN Security Council," the organization said in a statement explaining the endorsement.

MHRO and AVFM Offer Help - To A Feminist

By : AS EVERYBODY in the MHRM knows – false accusations of sexual assault are real.  They’re very real.  Far too many men and boys have been and continue to be persecuted by educational, legal, and criminal justice institutions based simply upon the word of a woman.  As soon as the words he sexually assaulted me are uttered – a male’s life is never the same again.  In North America, those who utter those words are immediately treated as victims – not as alleged victims; phalanxes of social and criminal justice institutions assemble to offer assistance, to counsel, to provide help to the accuser.  Those who are accused, ostensibly innocent until proven guilty, are in truth exactly the opposite and treated at almost every juncture, as criminals.  So damaging is an accusation of rape or sexual assault that even when a man clears his name – he is still left with almost overwhelming reputational damage.  It is an unfair burden that he must carry for the rest of his life.
Justice, like equality, should be for all.
With the exception of small organizations, operating on less than a shoestring, there is nobody to reach out and help these people.  Those accused of such crimes are routinely denied even the most basic semblance of due process.  The current state of affairs represents a series of wholly unbalanced and transparently unfair systems.  The reasons for the existence of this situation are myriad and complex.  While false accusers clearly provide the impetus for putting these forces into action, they are not directly responsible for their existence.  Rather, it is the historical influence of feminist-led agitation for change in laws and in how police and courts prosecute sexual assault that have brought us to this juncture.
