By John Ward: Maria Miller is turning into the political equivalent of Malaysian Flight MH370. There is a very loud black box pinger called the British population saying that she’s at the bottom of the ocean and wouldn’t it be nice if she stayed there, but as ever David Cameron sees his role as the defence of the indefensible. Ms Miller is in the running alongside Flight MH370 as being the most pointlessly long-running story of 2014 so far. But she is a cheat, a bully, a defamer and a liar, and so she must go. Given her record with the press, putting her in charge of regulating it was on a par with putting dear Ezak in charge of the Health Service.
The other Conservative renowned for his persistent defences of underdogs such as Rupert Murdoch, Darius Guppy, Tim Yeo, Bob Diamond and the Chinese politburo is of course Boris Johnson, so few will be surprised that he has waded into Miller Time to declare that the lady in question is being “hounded” by the media over stealing public money, using power to censor news reporters, and falsely accusing accused citizens in a psychopathic manner. I cannot wait for the moment when BoJo has to leap to his own defence on charges of perverting justice, taking secret backing finance from media tycoons, covering up for Leon Brittan and consorting in a horizontally fluids-sharing manner with senior Newscorpers.
Barclays, meanwhile, has narrowly avoided having to plead guilty to something by buying off the care-home operator who sued them over Libor fraud.

Where’s She Driving That Economy To? + Thoughts On Feminists, Catholics, Discrediting And Accountability

By So I was thinking about math and money. Forget government subsidies and welfare, and other gynocentric bailouts for a moment. I’m thinking in terms of cash in hand.

I can’t understand women’s selective comprehension of numbers as meaning anything. All through school, I remember girls saying, “Math is hard, math is tough, I don’t like math…”, and now my own girls are going to school and I’m hearing it all over again. And throughout my life I’ve looked around and seen women in jobs which handle money; cashiers, bank tellers, accounting, waitressing, receptionist, etc. How does one differentiate money from math? I suppose a bloke like myself – who can’t be bothered to differentiate gold from ore – just wouldn’t understand. But I feel the real issue has more impact than # vs $; if I am correct, be afraid, be very very afraid.

Most of the money changing hands is done by women with limited and/or poor education. As such, this means that fickle poorly thought out spending habits are what drive the economy; is it any wonder economists run scared when asked what they predict the state of the economy will be in six months; today it’s fifty shades of grey, tomorrow it’s the latest kitchen appliance destined to collect dust after one use, the day after… what?

Why 'Feminism' Poisons EVERYTHING (#cancelcolbert)

Thunderf00t: For someone who says so many stupid things (things like how 'genocide, slavery etc all work to support white supremacy' and that ONLY white people can be racist) she gets a surprising amount of attention from places like Time magazine, and getting invited to give keynote talks at places like Purdue university.

Fascinating: The Transformation Of Mr. Spock And The Decline Of Masculinity

By : When I was a child, I very much admired Mr. Spock, the half-Vulcan, half-human first officer of the Starship Enterprise. The Vulcan’s signature image included a raised eyebrow and the utterance of a single word: fascinating. Indeed, in my teenage years, Spock intrigued me enough to mention him as a possible dinner companion when the admissions-essay prompt on my University of Pennsylvania application asked me who, living or dead, fictional or non-, I would like to share a meal with. Spock got me into the Ivies.
Live long and prosper.
Today, Mr. Spock—along with the concept of masculinity that he represents– finds himself living in a trailer park and not at all prospering. This transformation of the Vulcan first officer—from the calm, collected, rational being played by Leonard Nimoy to the troubled, priggish Star Fleet officer played by Zachary Quinto–sheds some light on the demise of American masculinity in the last forty years. In this essay, I’m going to explore the historical origins of the Mr. Spock of the 1960s, discuss the vision of masculinity that this character represented, and then ponder Spock’s withering under phaser fire from the Feminist movement and photon torpedo hits from what the British sociologist Frank Ferudi has termed “therapy culture.” Finally, I’ll meditate briefly on what we’ve lost through the transformation of Mr. Spock.

An Alternative To Paper Abortion

By : Paper Abortion refers to the concept of men (being non-fetus-carriers) having a legal equivalent to an abortion. Now, no actual abortion is involved; whoever may be carrying the baby, a Paper Abortion does not terminate the fetus. What is done is a termination of paternal rights and responsibilities. As far as the father of the child is concerned, the child is/was/will never be born, so he has no claim to be with it and cannot be called on to support it.
Just as if it had actually been terminated. He is, in effect, not a father.
Paper Abortion is not a popular idea. Many feminists argue that the discussion shouldn’t even be held, but, unfortunately for them, we live in a nation believing in free speech, so the discussion has been and is being held. Do men deserve equal reproductive rights? Should fatherhood be able to be forced on a man where motherhood wouldn’t be on his female counterpart?

CEO Of Liechtenstein Bank Frick Murdered In Broad Daylight

Tyler Durden's picturever the weekend the world was gripped by the drama surrounding the mysterious murder-homicide of the former CEO of Dutch bank ABN Amro and members of his family, and whether there is more foul play than meets the eye. However, that is nothing compared to what just happened in the tiny, and all too quiet Principality of Lichtenstein, where moments ago the CEO of local financial institution Bank Frick & Co. AG, Juergen Frick, was shot dead in the underground garage of the bank located in the city of Balzers.

Based on preliminary reports, the murder is the result of a disgruntled fund manager, Juergen Germann, who had previously been embroiled in a "bitter dispute" with the government and the bank.

Dollar Mortally Wounded, Treasury Bond Toxic Paper, End of 2014

Greg Hunter: "They are going to move it (gold) to $5,000 to $7,000 an ounce, and silver $200 to $400 per ounce. Because all the world's central banks are going to need gold they are going to sell Treasury bonds to buy gold to make for a solution to their banking systems. What's the solution? It's legitimate reserves, hard asset gold reserves." Dr. Jim Willie. In closing the golden jackass predicts, "I think you are going to see by the end of this year that the dollar is mortally wounded and Treasury bond regarded as toxic paper."

What In The World Is Happening To The Nasdaq?

By Michael Snyder: All of a sudden, the Nasdaq is absolutely tanking.  On Monday, it fell more than 1 percent after dropping 3.6 percent on Thursday and Friday combined.  At this point, the Nasdaq is off to the worst start to a year that we have seen since 2008, and we all remember what happened back then.  So why is this happening?  In recent years, the Nasdaq has been ground zero for "dotcom bubble 2.0".  The hottest stocks in the entire world are on the Nasdaq - we are talking about stocks like Yahoo, Netflix, Apple, Tesla, Google and Facebook.  Those stocks have gone to absolutely incredible heights, but now they are starting to fall.  Some are blaming insider selling, and without a doubt the "smart money" is starting to flee the stock market.  Just check out this chart.  Others are blaming low expectations for first-quarter earnings or the tapering of quantitative easing by the Federal Reserve.  But whatever is causing this decline, it is starting to get alarming.  The Nasdaq just experienced its largest three day fall since November 2011.
No stock can resist gravity forever.  What goes up must eventually come down.  This is especially true for stock prices that become grotesquely distorted.
On Wall Street, a price to earnings ratio of 20 to 25 is usually considered fairly normal.  In recent years, the price to earnings ratios for many of these "hot tech stocks" have gone way, way beyond that.
