Baby Oligarch Gets A Wrist Slap - Conrad Hilton Cops Plea Deal For Smoking Pot In Plane Restroom And Threatening To Kill Flight Attendants

By Michael Krieger: Last month, I wrote about the fact that Paris Hilton’s brother had engaged in extraordinarily disruptive and illegal behavior on an international flight. I didn’t cover this story because it was a matter of national importance, but because I knew that he wouldn’t be punished for what he did. Meanwhile, hundreds of thousands of Americans are imprisoned every day for far less 
I’m not saying that average Americans should be imprisoned for such offenses, rather, I’m pointing out the egregious injustice within the U.S. legal system, and the the fact that when you have as much money as Conrad Hilton, laws simply do not apply to you. Here’s an excerpt from that post, Little Oligarch Gone Wild – Paris Hilton’s Brother Yells: I Will Fucking Own Anyone on This Flight; They Are Fucking Peasants:

Paris Hilton’s younger brother was arrested in Los Angeles on Tuesday for allegedly going insane on an international flight in July, reports TMZ.
“If you wanna square up to me bro, then bring it and I will fucking fight you,” he allegedly said as well as, “I am going to fucking kill you. I will fucking rip through you,” and “I will fucking own anyone on this flight; they are fucking peasants.”

Men Over Twenty Times As Likely As Women To Die At Work

Warning! Men are over twenty times more likely than women to die at work.
By : Studies show that men are at grave risk in the workplace. According to an analysis of official HSE data, between the years 2009-2014 male workers within the UK had a 20.75x higher fatality rate compared to females. This comes despite the fact that the workforce ratio between men and women is relatively equal, with 47% of the UK workforce made up of women.
Data from 2013/14 shows a total of 85 men died at work, whilst in the same year the fatality rate for women was considerably lower, at just four. This gender divide can be viewed in the following interactive infographic: The main cause of these worker fatalities was falls from height, which accounted for three in every ten worker deaths, of which most took place within the construction industry.
So why is there such a gap between the genders when it comes to fatality rates? One reason may be occupational segregation.

'Has Britain Become Hostile To Blokes?'

"Strong contributions to this debate were made by a number of men, while the contributions from Sally Peck, a Telegraph 'journalist', and Kate Smurthwaite, a feminist 'comedienne', were truly woeful." Mike Buchanan

US Criminal Sentencing: Do Women Get Off Easy?

Transcript: If you are a criminal defendant, it is far better to be a woman than a man. For the same crime, and with a similar criminal history, men in the U.S. are imprisoned much more frequently and for much longer sentences. This is one gender gap that we hear very little about. Coming up next on the Factual Feminist. We incarcerate people in the U.S. on a scale unheard of in most parts of the world. If you brought together all those now in prison and on probation or parole, it would constitute the second largest city in the nation. And it would be close to 90 percent male. Now the fact that more men than women go to jail is not itself a sign of discrimination. Men are far more likely to be rule breakers, risk-takers, and perpetrators of crime. But what happens when men and women are arrested for the same crime?

Ron Paul Says US Invasion Of Iraq Helped Create ISIL

Former US congressman Ron Paul has said that the US invasion of Iraq in 2003 resulted in the rise of terrorist groups such as ISIL in the Middle East.
Press TV: In an article published on his website on Sunday, Paul said Washington’s bombs against ISIL would continue to make the problem worse because it was our bombs that helped create the problem in the first place.”
There were no ISIL problem and no al-Qaeda problem in Iraq and Syria before the United States invaded Iraq, he wrote.
“Our bombs and involvement in the region only serve to recruit more fighters into ISIS (ISIL). To make matters worse, many of these radicalized fighters come from Europe and even the US. What happens when they go home?” he asked.
The United States and some of its allies have been conducting airstrikes against ISIL targets in Iraq and Syria since last year.
Paul suggested that regional countries should take the lead in the battle against the ISIL terrorists, saying that Washington should be grateful to Iran for contributing to the fight against the terror network.
“Instead of being angered at Iranian help to address the problem of ISIS (ISIL), perhaps we should send them a ‘thank you’ note,” he said.

In Defence Of The Family

By Read what Professor Ruth Wisse, from Harvard has to say:

Women’s Liberation, if not the most extreme, then certainly the most influential neo-Marxist movement in America, has done to the American home what communism did to the Russian economy, and most of the ruin is irreversible. By defining between men and women in terms of power and competition instead of reciprocity and co-operation, the movement tore apart the most basic and fragile contract in human society, the unit from which all other social institutions draw their strength.”
I believe that we stand on an abyss in the last two years of this dark century. Those of us that believe that the family is the cornerstone of any civilisation are embattled with feminist forces that seek to destroy the role of men in the lives of women and children. In 1971 I opened the doors of the first shelter for victims of domestic violence in the world.  Men, women and children came to my door. The feminist movement, hungry for funds and public recognition, hi-jacked my movement and turned it into a war against men.
I recognised that children born into violent and dysfunctional families were most likely to grow up into violent and dysfunctional adults. I realised that both men and women who were not able to make harmonious and loving relationships needed help.

Bill Cosby Is An Evil Genius

By : There has been a lot of reporting on Bill Cosby in the news but none seem to have even begun to scratch the surface of Bill Cosby’s Machiavellian genius.
But first, to really admire the man, we need to cover his humble beginnings and recap what has been covered in the news so far.
Born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1937 he started his comedic career in 1962. His comedic routines centered on his experiences as a kid, intentionally avoiding race as to include everyone and spread the message that we are all the same underneath. He was invited on television’s The Tonight Show in 1963. He released his début LP in 1964 with Warner Bros.
He became a television co-star in 1965 on the show I Spy, then in 1969 went to star in The Bill Cosby Show for 2 seasons.
He then went back to university (as we all know, a dark pit of eternal rape) to earn an MA from Massachusetts Amherst U.
After a few less successful shows he went on in 1984 to début The Cosby Show which would go on to become one the highest ranking sitcoms of all time.
Fast forwarding to recent events, starting in 2014 as Bill Cosby was negotiating with Netflix for a stand up special and a new TV series with NBC. As of January 2015 34 women (including many white women) have accused Bill Cosby of sexual assault. Accusations going all the way back to 1965.
Now here is where Bill Cosby’s evil genius start to shine.

The Truth About Apple Watch

GoldSilverBitcoin: Apple has been caught ripping off data storage from its customers. The company is expanding this model to other products like its new Apple Gold.
After Apple’s launch of a number of new products Monday at their “Spring Forward” Event, some of their claims were thrown into question. For one, the battery life of the Apple Watch, according to Tim Cooke, would be 18 hours. The reality is, if you actually use all the functions of that watch, the battery life can drop to as low as three hours. Apple would say they were merely giving best scenarios, but in the process they were misleading. Their Apple Edition Watch, also, has been scrutinized.
Mainstream press, in its difficulty to create engaging material about relevant topics, has created a storyline about how “gold investors have been positively giddy ever since Apple announced it planned to make a high-end watch with 18-karat gold casing.” News sources like CBS cited some pretty off-kilter websites to pull this little tidbit of info.

Angie Stone And Tina Campbell Prove Domestic Violence Is Not A One-Way Street In Black America

“When you go looking for the truth, be prepared to find it.” -Anonymous
By My previous two columns, “Mo’Nique Proves That “Diva Culture” Is Ruinous To Black Women” and “Raheem DeVaughn’s “Queens For A Day” have on no clothes” had barely made it into the Wayback Machine when yours truly got word of two prima facia examples of precisely what I was arguing in the aforementioned articles; Madame Noire discusses Ms. Stone:

“Angie Stone may be done with reality television, but that doesn’t mean that she has escaped the drama. According to the WSBTV, the Grammy-nominated singer was arrested Tuesday in DeKalb County.
