Feminism Is Outdated - Bath University Debate Fact Sheet

By Jordan Holbrook: On Tuesday 28th February, I attended a debate at the Bath University Debating Society titled “This House Believes That Feminism is Outdated”. Readers of this site will no doubt already be aware my position on the matter.
When the video goes live, I shall copy a URL to it somewhere around here.
Featured below is the fact sheet I prepared for one of the panellists in order to support her. I have copied it in its entirety, save a few additions/amendments. As some links are to files, they may not be clickable, so you may have to copypasta those into your URL bar.

Soundbites, rebuttals, etc. (This House Believes Feminism is Outdated)

"This Is Watergate": Trump Accuses Obama Of Wiretapping The Trump Tower

By Tyler Durden: President Trump on Saturday morning alleged that his predecessor Barack Obama had “wire-tapped” the Trump Tower in October, before the election: “Terrible! Just found out that Obama had my ‘wires tapped’ in Trump Tower just before the victory. Nothing found. This is McCarthyism!” he wrote.
“Is it legal for a sitting President to be "wire tapping" a race for president prior to an election? Turned down by court earlier. A NEW LOW!” he added in subsequent tweets. “I'd bet a good lawyer could make a great case out of the fact that President Obama was tapping my phones in October, just prior to Election!”
Trump compared Obama's alleged activity to Nixon's bugging of the Watergate hotel. "How low has President Obama gone to tapp my phones during the very sacred election process. This is Nixon/Watergate. Bad (or sick) guy!"

Elor Azaria And The Myth Of Jewish Universal Values

Gilad Atzmon interviewed by Alimuddin Usmani for La Pravda and E&R
Alimuddin Usmani: IDF soldier Elor Azaria was convicted of manslaughter for shooting dead a  wounded Palestinian. The case deeply divided Israel. Many Israelis said he was just doing his duty and was scapegoated by the army. On the other hand, a military spokesperson said"This is not the IDF, these are not the values of the IDF and these are not the values of the Jewish people". Gideon Lévy called the 18 month sentence “a sentence fit for a bicycle thief”.
What are your comments on this case?
Gilad Atzmon: A lot of issues are at stake here. Azaria was obviously a cold-blooded murderer who shot a wounded Palestinian in the head. Basically, he committed an execution in broad daylight.  From an Israeli perspective, Azaria’s main crime was being caught on camera. Yet, the circumstances in which he operated were pretty impossible. These Israeli soldiers are deployed in policing tasks. They, the occupiers, are engaged in conflict with the indigenous people of the land. It is a recipe for disaster. More often than not, Israeli soldiers and police forces end up operating as execution squads.

What Is To Be Done?

'The neoconservative ideology is perfect cover for the material interest of the military/security Deep State that is driving the world to destruction.'
By Paul Craig Roberts: The question in the title is V.I. Lenin’s question. His answer was to create a revolutionary “vanguard” to spread revolutionary ideas among the workers, the economic class that Karl Marx had declared to be the class rising to the ascendency of political power. Finally, democracy, frustrated by upper class interests in its earlier manifestations, would become reality. The workers would rule.
Given the presence of evil and human failing, it did not work out in that way. But Lenin’s question remains a valid one. Americans whose economic life and prospects for their children have been destroyed by the offshoring of American manufacturing and tradable professional skills jobs, such as software engineering, answered the question by electing Donald Trump.
The Americans, dispossessed by the offshoring corporations, elected Trump, because Trump was the only American running for a political office who called attention to the problem and declared his intention to fix it.
By standing up for Americans, Trump alienated the global corporations, their executives and shareholders, all of whom benefit from stealing the economic life of Americans and producing abroad where labor and regulatory costs are lower.

The Alpha Male Bandit And The Beta Male Baker

By : Leroy Leonard – don’t be this guy! Wait a minute…Leroy who?
I’m pretty sure that nobody reading this has ever heard of Leroy Leonard, but more than likely you have heard of the man who cuckolded him. So let’s begin with a brief bio of Charles Arthur “Pretty Boy” Floyd.
Floyd was born in Adairsville, Georgia on February 3, 1904, and moved with his family to eastern Oklahoma when he was a boy. His upbringing was fairly typical of rural youths at that time. His family was hardly affluent but no one missed any meals. It could be described as hardscrabble light. For the Floyd family, as with many others in those days, producing moonshine was commonplace. Of course, if you want to make corn liquor, having a cornfield on your property gives you a head start.
Floyd progressed from making moonshine and petty larceny (his first brush with the law was literally penny ante: stealing a jar of pennies) to grand larceny, mostly bank robbing, which entailed occasional casualties and a number of confrontations with lawmen.
As was the case with many an outlaw in those days, Floyd’s exploits were as much legend as fact. He was accused of far more crimes than he could have committed, and much like Jesse James, he was something of a hero to the locals.

The Mainstream Is Circling The Wagons: "They're Coming For All Of Us...It's An Orchestrated Attack Against Truth"

Mac Slavo: Within hours of the election of Donald Trump the mainstream media, their politico counterparts and social media operatives began spreading the narrative that the President was only elected as a result of the dissemination of fake news. The term itself became a rallying cry for everyone from major search engines to massive social media websites who said they would create fact checking teams within their organizations to ensure only legitimate news and information would be listed on their respective platforms. Soon, the leftist media began spreading lists, none of which were backed with any actual evidence, of supposed “fake news” purveyors and Russian propaganda websites. The lists included some of the most highly trafficked non-mainstream websites and aggregators around the world. As these Silicon Valley behemoths and popular news organizations mobilized, so too did mainstream advertising agencies, one of which quickly pulled advertising from the purported king of fake news, conservative leaning news organization Breitbart.com.

What Do Banks Do With Your Deposits?

RonPaul: It's Friday, which means it's payday for most people. Time to deposit that check into the bank, right? But what happens to that deposit? What happens in that building where a little rectangular sign says the government has you "insured".
