If You Don’t See That Washington Is Driving To War With Russia You Are A Dumbshit American

'The American people should be extremely concerned that theirgovernmen is crazy off the scale.'
By Stephen Lendman: In response to the Trump administration’s illegal seizure and search of Russian diplomatic properties in San Francisco, a total violation of diplomatic immunity, Vladimir Putin responded to a reporter’s question, saying “Trump is not my bride, and I am not his bride or groom.” He and other Russian officials remain understandably furious. US government hostility toward Russia is unrelenting. 
At the weekly press briefing of the Russian Foreign Ministry, Maria Zakharova commented on the deplorable action, mocking State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert’s explanation, including Nauert’s claim that Washington seeks normal relations with Moscow.
“How does the illegality that is happening on the territory of the Russian Federation building, which formerly housed the Russian General Consulate in San Francisco, contribute to normalizing the situation,” Zakharova asked? 
“Why are agents of the US government whom we do not know and whom we have not invited violating our property for who knows what reason? Do these illegal intrusions also ‘contribute to the normalization of bilateral relations?'” “Who sent them there? For what purpose? What are they doing there? Why do they feel like they can make themselves at home there?

Can Women Do Everything Without Men?

"I think feminism is a bunch of garbage,
I think it's written to brainwash women into believing they can do it all on their own and the big bad world is out there to hate them. Well the world doesn't,
you know, not all men hate women!"
Said Crystal Wright.

Stax And Stax Of Aural Pleasure!

By Angelo Agathangelou: As far as we are concerned, there are all the other commercial headphones ever conceived and then there are Stax, ...OK, OK and the Sennheiser Orpheus, but that's a cool UK£37,500, not to everyone's taste so no better in our opinion than a well chosen Stax combination costing less than UK£5000, with a second headphone into the bargain! 

Clearly I have some news for my fellow audio fanatics out there based on having had the opportunity to spend a day with all the top level Stax 'ear speakers' and most of the associated 'energisers’. I have only two further items to check to make my own final decision on which two Stax Stereo Sophia and I will finally settle on and that is the Trilogy and Stax SRM-T8000 Hybrid energisers which unfortunately were out on loan, but those aside, here is my take on back to back testing of Stax 500, 700, 007, 009 'ear speakers' with SRM-353X, SRM-006tS and Stax SRM-007tII, all 'Kimik' Edition energisers. ...I also got to test these back to back with Audeze LCD4, 3 and XC, also Focal Utopia and HD800s Ether Flow, among others pretty much covering all the bases of what people are calling the best of the best and all in one room against Trilogy headphone amps and Chord Dave, Hugo2 and Mojo. ...It's against that background that we feel that Stax beat all-comers to a pulp.

Does Porn Really Destroy Relationships?

By : In 1989, researchers Kenrick, Gutierres, and Goldberg published a powerful study examining the impact of pornography on relationships and attraction. In the study, subjects were exposed to photos from Playboy and other types of erotica. Subjects who had viewed these nude images then found other women—especially their wives—to be less attractive. The subjects also reported that they were actually less in love with their wives after viewing the pornographic images.
This research has been heavily cited in academic literature, but also in general media discussions of the effects of pornography. The fact that porn could make men feel less attraction and less love for their wives is commonly used as a foundation for arguments against it. But while the idea that porn leads men to compare their wives to unrealistic ideals is a concern cited by activists and spouses, new research reveals that porn no longer appears to have this effect—if it ever did.
You may be aware of the ongoing “replication crisis” in social-science research. In essence, recent research has attempted to replicate some of the hallmark findings of some heavily-cited, influential research in psychology and the social sciences. Surprisingly, attempts to replicate many of these research findings have failed, suggesting that in many cases, the original studies were limited by statistical strategies, methodological flaws, or just over-interpretation by enthusiastic researchers eager to publish sensational findings in an academic market that feeds on hype.

Cambridge University Goes Full Feminist Duluth Model Retard

Via Jeff, J4MB: This. It starts: Cambridge has become the first British university to appoint a full-time sexual assault and harassment adviser to help female students [J4MB: Our emphasis] cope with unwanted attention.
And continues ...The step was taken ahead of Freshers’ Week next month, when new students traditionally indulge in alcohol-fuelled parties that often result in drunken sexual encounters.
The introduction of the £40,000- a-year post follows growing complaints by female students of inappropriate physical contact, wolf whistles or jokes about rape.
Campaigners have blamed a spread of ‘lad’ culture on campuses for a growth in sexism and the degrading treatment of female students by men in sports teams and societies. [Man On Fire: Because obviously if two students are drunk whilst having sex and one happens to have a penis, we must persecute the one with a penis and obviously according to Cambridge university, women never push themselves on men who aren't interested].
Many universities have introduced compulsory sexual consent classes to crack down on violence. But critics warned that Cambridge’s move would fuel the ‘myth’ that universities were dangerous places for women, encouraging a rise in the reporting of even minor incidents.
The new position comes after a feminist survey suggested that 77 per cent of female students at Cambridge had suffered sexual harassment. The person who takes the job will offer ‘emotional and practical support to female students exclusively following sexual harassment or sexual assault’, run workshops, and work with rape counsellors and police, because in the UK we don't call a female's sexual assault on a male, rape, so it isn't...

An Isolated Tyrannical Regime - Not Pyongyang, It’s Washington

By Finian Cunningham: If Pentagon chief James Mattis was seeking to reassure the world of American restraint in the North Korea crisis, he clumsily did the opposite. The US Defense Secretary was speaking after intense discussions with President Trump and other senior military officials in the White House Situation Room following the sixth nuclear test carried out by North Korea on Sunday.
Mattis emerged from the meeting to say that any threat from North Korea to the United States and its allies would be met with an «overwhelming military response». He then added – with a weirdly presumed ethical tone – that the US «was not looking to the total annihilation of North Korea».
That was supposed to mean that the US military would exercise restraint – by not obliterating a country with a population of 25 million. Well, we should be so grateful. That’s so goddamn generous of the Americans! 
How reassuring that the United States with a nuclear arsenal of 5,000 warheads should express an apparent reluctance to annihilate.

How Feminism Contains The Non-Feminist Breakout

The word is out about feminism. The cat is out of the bag. The genie is out of the bottle. People in growing numbers finally understand that feminism is the problem, and they are discussing this very frankly, in ways which blaspheme the feminist narrative. These people are NOT PLEASED, and they grow steadily more unabashed about saying so.
The trend has not broken into mainstream media or conversation quite yet, but the silence shows ominous cracks. So while feminism is still a sacred idol for many, it seems only a matter of time before iconoclasts in critical numbers find the nerve to desecrate that idol with gusto, in broad daylight, in the public square.
The feminists are well aware of this development, which poses a threat to their power, their worldview, and their entire way of life. They have reason to be fearful, and what they fear most is the non-feminist breakout.
What is the non-feminist breakout? It is a tipping point in the non-feminist revolution, where non-feminist people gain the mutual knowledge and strength in numbers to openly voice, en masse, their opposition to feminism. It is called a “breakout” because it is like developed force breaking out of a vessel, or an encircled army breaking out of a pocket.

Venezuela Is About To Ditch The Dollar In Major Blow To US: Here’s Why It Matters

Written by : Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro said Thursday that Venezuela will be looking tofreeitself from the U.S. dollar next weekReuters reports. According to the outlet, Maduro will look to use the weakest of two official foreign exchange regimes (essentially the way Venezuela will manage its currency in relation to other currencies and the foreign exchange market), along with a basket of currencies.
According to Reuters, Maduro was referring to Venezuela’s current official exchange rate, known as DICOM, in which the dollar can be exchanged for 3,345 bolivars. At the strongest official rate, one dollar buys only 10 bolivars, which may be one of the reasons why Maduro wants to opt for some of the weaker exchange rates.
