American Mythologies And MGTOW

"Whether you are American or not, many are familiar with the iconic phrase 'the American dream'. I want to take the time to analyse what that means and how that relates to going your own way." Stardusk


Feminist Elizabeth Farrelly: Violence Against Logic

By Elizabeth Farrelly, in the Sydney Morning Herald, asked the question “Is Feminism only as strong as the men who support it?” The article itself is something that only the brave should read. Farrelly’s diatribe is all over the place like a mad woman’s excrement.
A wink, at least from Tony Abbott, is as bad as a multiple murder (by Elliott Rodger) to a one-eyed Feminist.  She goes from Australia to the US via the UK, but also visits “Iran, Iraq, Pakistan, Afghanistan and Algeria.” All these places, the wink, the killings and more are linked by a common theme – misogyny.”
The word misogyny has been overworked lately, but men’s hatred for women who won’t submit is everywhere.
Yes the word has been overworked, but there is still plenty of mileage in the accusation. The evidence for this misogyny is provided in these island hops of logic as she moves from theme to theme. She moves quickly, I feel, because even the most rudimentary investigation would uncover the accusation as false.

The Latest Russian Fighter Jet Blows America's Away

Outgunned by the Su-30 family of aircraft and suffering critical design flaws, the American F-35 is staring down the barrel of obsolescence – and punching a gaping hole in western air defences. 
By Rakesh Krishnan Simha: Built to be the deadliest hunter killer aircraft of all time, the F-35 has quite literally become the hunted. In every scenario that the F-35 has been wargamed against Su-30 Flankers, the Russian aircraft have emerged winners. America’s newest stealth aircraft – costing $191 million per unit – is riddled with such critical design flaws that it’s likely to get blown away in a shootout with the super-maneuverable Sukhois.

EU Showdown: Greece Takes On The Vampire Squid Read

A return to the polls was triggered in December, when the Parliament rejected Prime Minister Antonis Samaras’ pro-austerity candidate for president. In a general election, now set for January 25th, the EU-skeptic, anti-austerity, leftist Syriza party is likely to prevail. Syriza captured a 3% lead in the polls following mass public discontent over the harsh austerity measures Athens was forced to accept in return for a €240 billion bailout.
Austerity has plunged the economy into conditions worse than in the Great Depression. As Professor Bill Black observes, the question is not why the Greek people are rising up to reject the barbarous measures but what took them so long.
Ireland was similarly forced into an EU bailout with painful austerity measures attached. A series of letters has recently come to light showing that the Irish government was effectively blackmailed into it, with the threat that the ECB would otherwise cut off liquidity funding to Ireland’s banks. The same sort of threat has been leveled at the Greeks, but this time they are not taking the bait.

Why Is The UK NHS Lurching From Crisis To Crisis? + J4MB Election Manifesto

By Mike Buchanan: Are you as tired as we are of seeing, hearing, and reading stories about the NHS lurching from crisis to crisis, with politicians and others gravely asserting the causes are numerous and complex, and ever more taxpayers’ money is required, when the prime cause of these crises was predicted by Dr Vernon Coleman in his books, over 30 years ago?
We cover the issue of employment on pp. 18-23 of our election manifesto, with a particular focus on the prime cause of the crises in the NHS on p.20.
It’s not rocket science.

We Are Entering An Era Of Shattered Illusions

By Brandon Smith: The structure of history is held together by two essential and distinct kinds of links, two moments in time to which no one is immune: moments of epiphany, and moments of catastrophe. Sometimes, both elements intermingle at the birth of a singular epoch. Men often awaken to understanding in the midst of great crisis; and, invariably, great crises can erupt when men awaken. These are the moments when social gravity vanishes, when the kinetic glue of normalcy melts away, and we begin to see the true foundations of our world, if a foundation exists at all.
Catastrophe occurs when too many people refuse to accept that around us always are two universes at work. There is the cold, hard reality that underlies everything. And on the surface is a veil of deceit and compromise. The more humanity compromises vital truths in order to enjoy the comfort of illusions, the more mind-shattering it will be when those illusions fall away. These two worlds can coexist only for short periods of time, and they will always and eventually collide. There is no other possible outcome.

France Policies Cause Paris Attack - Ron Paul

Former US congressman Ron Paul says that the shooting attack in Paris is the direct result of interventionist policies taken by Western countries, including France.
Press TV: In an interview with NewsMax on Wednesday, Paul condemned the attack on a magazine that left 12 people dead and described it as “obscene” and “blowback.”
He explained that the French government’s policies to intervene in the affairs of other countries caused these kinds of attacks.
“France has been a target for many, many years, because they’ve been involved in foreign affairs in Libya, and they really prodded us along in — recently in Libya, but they’ve been involved in Algeria, so they’ve had attacks like this, you know, not infrequently. So, it does involve, you know, their foreign policy as well,” he said.
It’s that overall policy which invites retaliation, and they see us as intruders. But it’s a little bit more complex, you know, when they hit us, either here at home, and hit civilians, and what’s happening in France. But I don’t think you can divorce these instances from the overall foreign policy,” the former presidential candidate added.

Yes, Please Don’t Apologize For Rape Jokes

By : Salon assistant editor Jenny Kutner was let out of her cage to spread fear and sadness to all the little children. Before I begin making her regret writing her recent tower of half-baked thoughts and baby Jesus meat, I’d like to ask Salon’s recruiters to start screening for insecure morons. I don’t know about the rest of you, but I don’t want to continue living in fear of being pinned down and having my brain forcibly impregnated with inane theories about first-world “social issues” like rape jokes.
Kutner, you should feel special. I wrote this article on my birthday, which means that picking apart your stupidity was a more arousing prospect than doing anything involving cake and ice cream.
Here’s Kutner’s entire brain abortion in a few sentences:
A man told a rape joke. I didn’t like it. He learned that I was a feminist and apologized with a hug. Now I feel bad because I feel different. I should not feel different. Everyone should have been offended like me. He should have apologized to people who laughed.
Reading Kutner’s inane ramblings brought to mind comedy legend George Carlin’s old rant about how rape can be hilarious, all you have to do is picture Porky Pig raping Elmer Fudd. Carlin repeats old bullshit talking points about how men victim-blame, but notice he never lets his stupid gender politics stop him from becoming a comedy legend that talks about whatever the hell he wants.

How The US Southern Poverty Law Center Cooks It's Own Books

By Louis Brandeis: As mentioned in an earlier post, the winter holidays have given us some downtime with which to reflect upon the Southern Poverty Law Center’s audited financial statements from 2006 to 2013. Having no accounting training beyond what we got as a college freshman years ago, we freely admit that spreadsheets, etc., are not our strong point, and so we ask our readers to look at the numbers and see what they think.
Is there a CPA in the house?
Obtaining the SPLC’s financial information is simple enough, as we described at the end of that previous post. Interpreting the numbers is the tricky part.
Above is a breakdown of SPLC expenses through the end of Fiscal Year 2013. With the help of the Internet Archive’s cantankerousWayback Machine, we were able to obtain the same information going back to 2006, and it is only after one compiles the numbers that patterns, and questions, begin to emerge. For example, below is a compilation of postage costs claimed by the SPLC over the eight year period and using the same headings as the audited report.
