New For Commieland 2020

The worst holiday tradition, by far, is reading up on all the new California laws that get enacted on January 1, nearly all of which were passed without my knowledge or approval and some of which required Google-fu just to learn of their existence. Democracy in action!

Every year, hundreds of new California laws take effect. Many of them won’t have much effect on your daily life, but here’s a closer look at some that might in 2020:

AB 375: Data privacy for consumers

Passed in 2018. Introduced by Asm. Ed Chau (D-Monterey Park).

Now that’s EVEN MORE democracy in action! Passing laws that only take effect after the next election cycle, in order to allow an adjustment period nobody believes that. It’s just so the peasants won’t notice until your reelection is in the bag.

The state’s sweeping new consumer data privacy law gives Californians the right to learn what companies like Facebook and Google know about them — and to stop the sharing or selling of their data. They will also be able to sue over data breaches if companies fail to adequately protect their data.

I despise this. On the surface, it sounds great. But then you think about how Silicon Valley and Sacramento are in bed together like two trannies that got stuck. No, this bill is “belling the cat”. You can’t go after Alphabet for selling your digital soul because that’s now the government’s job!

AB 539: Predatory lending

Passed in 2019. Introduced by Asm. Monique Limon (D-Santa Barbara).

Caps the interest that can be charged on loans between $2,500-$10,000.

Whoa. No, that sounds too good.

This bill, entitled the Fair Access to Credit Act, would authorize a finance lender, with respect to a loan of a bona fide principal amount of $2,500 or more but less than $10,000, to contract for or receive charges at a rate not exceeding an annual simple interest rate of 36% plus the Federal Funds Rate.

Oh, good. My credit card is now limited to DOUBLING its current rate. What else… mostly just massaging numbers around… you still can’t default on student debt… nothing here to give a bankster heartburn.

AB 218: Statute of limitations: Childhood sexual abuse
Passed in 2019. Introduced by Asm. Lorena Gonzalez (D-San Diego).
Extends statute of limitations for adult victims of childhood sexual abuse to report their abusers from age 26 to age 40.

Because some women don’t notice they’ve been raped for decades.

AB 602: Deepfake pornography
Passed in 2019. Introduced by Asm. Marc Berman (D-Palo Alto).
Allows a victim of nonconsensual deepfake pornography to sue for damages.

It’s now illegal to make fake porn about somebody you know unless they have 72 hours to review it.

SB 273: Statute of limitations: Domestic violence
Passed in 2019. Introduced by Sen. Susan Rubio (D-Baldwin Park).
Extends statute of limitations for domestic violence felonies from 3 years to 5.

Because some women don’t notice they’ve been raped for decades. Abused for years, I mean.

SB 310: Felons serving on juries
Passed in 2019. Introduced by Sen. Nancy Skinner (D-Berkeley).
Convicted felons who have completed their sentences, parole, probation and supervision will no longer be disqualified from serving as jurors.

Can they also own firearms now?

SB 439: Prosecution of children under 12
Passed in 2018. Introduced by Sen. Holly Mitchell (D-Los Angeles).
Ends the prosecution of children under age 12 who commit crimes other than murder and forcible sexual assault.

HOLY SHIT! Only adults can commit crimes now?

On September 30th, Governor Brown signed a historic piece of legislation ending the prosecution of children under 12 in juvenile court. Senate Bill (SB) 439, authored by Senator Holly J. Mitchell, established, for the first time, a minimum age for the jurisdiction of juvenile courts in California. Twenty-one other US states have minimum age laws, but California now emerges as a national leader, joining Massachusetts in setting a minimum that complies with international human rights standards.

International human rights standards. That means this is a UN agenda item.

United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child

Click to access CRC.C.GC.10.pdf

32. Rule 4 of the Beijing Rules recommends that the beginning of MACR [minimum age of criminal responsibility] shall not be fixed at too low an age level, bearing in mind the facts of emotional, mental and intellectual maturity. In line with this rule the Committee has recommended States parties not to set a MACR at a too low level and to increase the existing low MACR to an internationally acceptable level. From these recommendations, it can be concluded that a minimum age of criminal responsibility below the age of 12 years is considered by the Committee not to be internationally acceptable. States parties are encouraged to increase their lower MACR to the age of 12 years as the absolute minimum age and to continue to increase it to a higher age level.


33. At the same time, the Committee urges States parties not to lower their MACR to the age of 12. A higher MACR, for instance 14 or 16 years of age, contributes to a juvenile justice system which, in accordance with article 40 (3) (b) of CRC, deals with children in conflict with the law without resorting to judicial proceedings, providing that the child’s human rights and legal safeguards are fully respected. In this regard, States parties should inform the Committee in their reports in specific detail how children below the MACR set in their laws are treated when they are recognized as having infringed the penal law, or are alleged as or accused of having done so, and what kinds of legal safeguards are in place to ensure that their treatment is as fair and just as that of children at or above MACR.

Resuming the new laws,

SB 30: Domestic partnership expansion
Passed in 2019. Introduced by Sen. Scott Wiener (D-San Francisco).
Opens up domestic partnerships to all Californians, regardless of age or sexual identity. Until now, they’ve been restricted to same-sex couples, or opposite-sex couples aged 62 and up (for social security reasons).

SB 47: Campaign finance disclosure: Ballot measure petitions
Passed in 2019. Introduced by Sen. Ben Allen (D-Santa Monica).
Requires signature petitions for initiatives, referenda and recalls to list their campaigns’ top contributors.

Pro-tip: don’t sign anything sponsored by the Cooperative Partnership of Kind, Generous and Noble People Who Believe Everybody Is A Human Being Worthy Of Love.

SB 1249: Animal testing ban: Cosmetic products
Passed in 2018. Introduced by Sen. Cathleen Galgiani (D-Stockton).
Bans sale of cosmetic products with ingredients that were tested on animals on or after January 1, 2020.

A few more jobs just left the state. I’m sure the Lesbian Origami Peyote Commune will be equal in economic output.

SB 8: Smoking ban: State parks and beaches
Passed in 2019. Introduced by Sen. Steve Glazer (D-Orinda).
Bans smoking at state parks and beaches. It comes with a caveat: people can still smoke on paved surfaces like parking lots.

AB 205: Definition of ‘beer’

Bullshit. San Franciscans are wussy wine drinkers.

Passed in 2019. Introduced by Asm. Tom Daly (D-Anaheim).
Expands the definition of beer to include alcoholic beverages fermented with fruit, honey, herbs and other newly approved ingredients.

AB 619: Reusable food containers
Passed in 2019. Introduced by Asm. David Chiu (D-San Francisco).
Allows restaurant customers to bring — and eat with/from — their own food containers and silverware. It also allows food vendors at fairs, festivals, and farmers markets to use reusable items, which has been against the code until now.

Go ahead and get a plate of Macarena

Eat it with the fork you borrowed from another fella

Believe the waiter when he says he washed with soap and

Heyyyy Salmonella!

AB 577: Maternal mental health coverage
Passed in 2019. Introduced by Asm. Susan Eggman (D-Stockton).
Ensures that mothers diagnosed with a maternal mental health disorder whose providers leave their insurance network can still see that provider and be fully covered for up to 12 months. A separate change in the budget extends Medi-Cal coverage to moms with mental health disorders to one year, up from the current 60 days.

Because Lorena Bobbit truly was the ‘cut felt around the world’.

State Budget: Health insurance mandate
Passed in 2019.
Californians who go without health insurance in 2020 will have to pay a penalty on their 2021 tax returns, under a new state-imposed mandate. Gov. Newsom has proposed using revenue from this mandate to fund premium assistance for low and middle income Covered California enrollees.

Obamacare is now Gavincare! I thank God I’m Christian because I can tell Newsom to GO TO HELL and know that he will.

State Budget: Medi-Cal benefits
Passed in 2019.
Allows adults enrolled in Medi-Cal to obtain several optional benefits that were eliminated during the recession. Among them: audiology, incontinence creams and washes, eyeglasses, podiatry, speech therapy.

The all-important Baby Boomer vote.

AB 1482: Rent cap and tenant protections
Passed in 2019. Introduced by Asm. David Chiu (D-San Francisco).
Caps annual rent increases at 5% plus inflation, and prohibits landlords from evicting tenants without just cause.

I looked at RVs the other day. Seriously. Because of laws like this one.

AB 68: Accessory dwelling units
Passed in 2019. Introduced by Asm. Phil Ting (D-San Francisco).
Makes it cheaper and faster for Californians to build granny-flats on their property, considered a way to address state’s housing crisis.

California’s Governor Mansion *GunnerQ checks* does NOT have a granny-flat available for use by the homeless.

SB 329: Housing voucher discrimination
Passed in 2019. Introduced by Sen. Holly Mitchell (D-Los Angeles).
Prohibits landlords from issuing blanket denials against the 300,000 low-income Californians who receive Section 8 housing vouchers.

The only group more privileged in California than “low-income residents” are the criminally insane.

AB 5: Independent contractor rules
Passed in 2019. Introduced by Asm. Lorena Gonzalez (D-San Diego).
Codifies California Supreme Court decision that established a new test for classifying workers as independent contractors, while providing exemptions for a number of industries.

This is a fun one because last I heard, companies like Uber are going to simply ignore the law and see what happens. FINALLY, some civil disobedience!

SB 142: Lactation rooms at work
Passed in 2019. Introduced by Sen. Scott Wiener (D-San Francisco).
Expands requirements for lactation rooms in workplaces and requires employers provide female workers a break each time they need to express milk.

Ladies, when male feminists who openly celebrate sexual perversion make laws encouraging the display and usage of your naughty bits, it’s a trap. Don’t take advantage of their “opportunities” to be videotaped.

SB 188: CROWN Act: Hair-based discrimination
Passed in 2019. Introduced by Sen. Holly Mitchell (D-Los Angeles).
Known as the CROWN Act, prevents discrimination in workplaces and schools based on traits historically associated with race, including certain hairstyles such as braids, twists and locks.

Already mocked.

No gun laws in that list. You know they’re real. I certainly do; they’ve already tightened up ammunition purchases to the point that police can’t buy ammo.

Thousands of lawful California gun owners are being denied ammunition purchases. Here’s why


By Ryan Sabalow, 9 December 2019

Zachary Berg usually buys guns and ammunition with relative ease. After all, he’s a Sutter County sheriff’s deputy and needs them for his job. California’s stringent gun laws usually don’t apply to him.

But Berg couldn’t buy shotgun shells at his local hardware store in Yuba City prior to a duck hunting trip last month. He was rejected under California’s stringent ammunition background check program that took effect July 1, because his personal information didn’t match what state officials had in their database.

Berg was one of tens of thousands of Californians who have been turned away from buying ammunition at firearms and sporting goods stores, even though they appear to be lawfully able to do so, a Sacramento Bee review of state data shows. Between July 1 and November, nearly one in every five ammunition purchases was rejected by the California Department of Justice, the figures show.

Of the 345,547 ammunition background checks performed, only 101 stopped the buyer because he or she was a “prohibited person” who can’t legally possess ammunition, according to state Department of Justice data.

The law is working as intended!


If you have a gun-violence restraining order, you’ll be prohibited from buying a firearm for up to five years, under AB 12 by Assemblywoman Jacqui Irwin, D-Thousand Oaks. It takes effect Sept. 1.

Previous versions took your guns away for 30 days and then you got a chance to prove your innocence. Now your guns are just gone. We knew it would come to this.

An employer, coworker, employee or teacher can seek a gun-violence restraining order from a court, allowing police to remove firearms from someone making threats, under AB 61 by Assemblyman Phil Ting, D-San Francisco. It takes effect Sept. 1.

Fucking God-Damned Sodom Francis-Is-A-Sicko.

You can’t buy guns in California if you are prohibited from buying guns in another state, under AB 164 by Assemblywoman Sabrina Cervantes, D-Corona. The bill takes effect Jan. 1.

California law enforcement agencies before Jan. 1, 2021 must develop and adopt written policies and standards regarding the use of gun violence restraining orders under Irwin’s AB 339.

This is a loyalty-enforcement mechanism. If police don’t have a set policy for enforcing red flag confiscation then they have an excuse to not carry out the judge’s order without any specific cop being blame-able. When a written policy is mandated, however, police leaders who don’t make the policy get punished while the line cops who refuse to follow the policy once created get fired for not doing their job.

Suicide warning labels must be on gun packages and in gun stores by June 1, under Irwin’s AB 645. The handgun safety certificate test also will cover the topic of suicide.

Why do so many gun-owning Californians contemplate suicide? *Gunner Q thinks about living in that RV he toured earlier today* Oh, right. Well, a five-minute lecture will surely fix that.

Certain gun “precursor” parts must be sold through a licensed vendor under AB 879 by Assemblyman Mike Gipson, D-Carson. Provisions of the bill begin to take effect Jan. 1, but others don’t until July 1, 2024 or 2025.

They want to ban ghost guns but are hampered by the fact that they don’t actually understand how guns work. I doubt my esteemed leaders even understand how hand tools work. Pro-tip to my elected officials, if you want to appear knowledgeable in the workshop then be sure to insert the flathead screwdriver into the electrical socket for several seconds before you use it. That will keep it charged!

No more firearms and ammunition can be sold at the Del Mar Fairgrounds in San Diego after Jan. 1, 2021, under AB 893 by Assemblyman Todd Gloria, D-San Diego.

Ending gun shows and related conventions has always been a top priority. Eh, so long as we’re welcome in Vegas and Reno. Just more jobs leaving the state.

The $100 cap on processing fees for concealed firearm licenses is going away with the passage of AB 1297 by Assemblyman Kevin McCarty, D-Sacramento. County sheriffs can now charge “an amount equal to the actual costs for processing the application,” according to the bill, which takes effect Jan. 1.

More taxes.

If you have a gun-violence restraining order against you, you can fill out a form that says you’re willing to relinquish your guns, under Ting’s AB 1493. The bill takes effect Sept. 1.

Should I tip the attending Commissar or will he be forging my signature?

Nonprofits “that are at high risk of terrorist attack due to ideology, beliefs, or mission” can apply for state grants of up to $200,000 from a newly formed State Nonprofit Security Grant Program to beef up their onsite security. The bill, AB 1548 by Assemblyman Jesse Gabriel, D-San Fernando Valley, was in response to mass shootings at mosques, churches and synagogues.

Did you catch that sleight of hand? This law is “in response to mass shootings at mosques, churches and synagogues” but gives free money “due to ideology, beliefs, or mission.”

Starting Jan. 1, the fees Californians pay the state when purchasing a firearm will climb to $38.19, with the passage of AB 1669 by Assemblyman Rob Bonta, D-Alameda. The bill also updated California’s legal code to reflect that gun show regulations apply to ammunition vendors.

Like I said, they hated gun shows for a long time.

If you’re younger than 21, you can’t buy a semiautomatic center-fire rifle starting Jan. 1. SB 61 by State Sen. Anthony Portantino, D-La Cañada Flintridge, also prohibits Californians from buying more than one semiautomatic center-fire rifle in a 30-day period beginning on July 1, 2021.

Because Dick’s Sporting Goods set such a profitable example?

Beginning Jan. 1, the owner of any unlocked gun taken out of a home by a child or a “prohibited person” can be charged with a crime and penalized with a 10-year ban on gun ownership under Portantino’s SB 172. The bill also set gun storage requirements for nursing homes.

Now that’s just paranoia.

And more from the dead-tree edition of today’s LA Slimes.

Women seeking birth control pills through apps such as one offered by Planned Parenthood will no longer have to participate in video conferencing with a health professional for a prescription.

I thought liberals were all about educating people?

Food handlers will be required to take training on major food-based allergens. THose who seek a state-issued food handler card will have until the end of 2020 to do so. The law was prompted by the case of a Sacramento-area girl whose peanut allergy led to her death at a summer camp in 2013.


Giorgi Family Reaches $15 Million Settlement in Peanut Allergy Tragedy

Giorgi Family Reaches $15 Million Settlement in Peanut Allergy Tragedy

By Gwen Smith, 6 October 2016

It was the case that broke the hearts of a family – and of an entire food allergy community. In July 2013, Natalie Giorgi had a severe allergic reaction after taking a bite of a Rice Krispie square that turned out to contain peanut butter.

She reportedly spat it out immediately.

At first the 13-year-old had no obvious reaction, but soon she was suffering severe breathing distress and other signs of anaphylaxis. Natalie then died in her mother’s arms.

After one dose of Benadryl (pre-symptomatic) followed by three shots of adrenaline. An allergy so strong that a lethal dose is one taste is a freak event that general society has no duty to accommodate.

The family had been vacationing at Camp Sacramento, a family camp run by the city of Sacramento, whose staff had been fully informed of the girl’s allergies.

On October 5, the lawsuit that Louis and Joanne Giorgi launched against the city was settled for $15 million as well as an agreement that Camp Sacramento will become accredited with the American Camping Association and implement full allergy training and accommodation protocols.

You know why the parents sued? Because the city has deep pockets. No other reason. I feel sorry for the kid yet hope her parents spend Hell in a hornet nest with a God-given bee allergy for their selfish crybullying of the entire state.

Natalie’s parents Louis and Joanne Giorgi said they had sued in part to ensure that what happened to Natalie would never happen again at the camp, and to raise awareness of the life-threatening nature of food allergies.

They lied. It was all about the money. Maybe a little revenge too but no, they were not doing any kind of “public service” by demanding $15M because the staff didn’t assign their daughter a culinary bodyguard.

“For us, it was about that Natalie mattered, and she did nothing wrong,” Louis Giorgi, who is a physician, said in an interview with KCRA-TV, the local NBC affiliate. “And it was important for our kids to know that we did nothing wrong. Then, more globally, it was important to make sure that no other family was having to deal with this situation.”

Guess what, Physician Giorgi? I once had a doctor do me wrong. That means YOU need to give me $1M, to ensure that what that other doctor did will never happen again.

He believes the high profile of Natalie’s tragedy and lawsuit have sparked greater awareness of food allergies in general, and especially among those preparing and serving meals. “For that, we find some solace in her loss, in that she will be there for others, and countless others.”

And to think, Liberals don’t call that attitude violence.

The lawsuit had accused the city of Sacramento and the camp of negligence in the hiring, training and supervising of staff who were to be serving campers with food allergies. In addition, after Natalie’s two epinephrine injections failed to stop her reaction from progressing, the camp’s staff were unable to locate the key to the storage cabinet that contained medicines including an epinephrine auto-injector. Louis Giorgi severed a tendon breaking into the cabinet, and the family’s suit said the missing key caused delay, which may have contributed to Natalie’s death.

Next time, try using a stick or rock instead of your hand, Doctor Moron. If that was any kind of a kid’s camp then it had sticks & rocks handy and to spare.

End segue.

School districts will have more power over the creation of new charter schools and new teachers at charter schools will be required to hold the same credentials as those in traditional public schools.

That will poison-pill the charter school alternatives to Leftoid U.

Minimum wage is now $13/hr for businesses with more than 25 employees. Scheduled to hit $15/hr in 2023. Because greedy capitalist overlords can just shit money whenever they feel like it.

I quote this verbatim from the Times: “New oil drilling in California will be prohibited from running pipelines across state-owned land–a strong push against any new drilling approved by the Trump administration.

Orange man bad, like plentiful cheap energy!

Any circus that uses animals other than dogs, cats or horses is banned from operating in California.

WOOHOO! The State government outlawed itself! Go home, pigs, you just voted yourselves out of your own circus!


The Pensacola Shooter’s Funny Manifesto

My apologies to Matt who already reblogged the original, but… well… the original name of this article was “The Porn Stash Manifesto” and it turns out that, uh, ‘porn stash’ is a… search term… that brings the wrong crowd. I had to fix that. Ahem.

I waited to cover the Pensacola shooter because it showed every indication of becoming a circus: other Arabs found behaving suspiciously, Saudi Arabia refusing to cooperate with investigations, the most powerful military in the world is so scared of its own troops that our domestic bases are frigging gun-free zones! And not even Trump cares to correct that!

Enough time has passed to conclude that this was a kookie run amok, and all the background scandals are just the screeching of social justice vampires being exposed to daylight. Fortunately, the kookie in question is interesting!

Presenting Mohammed Saeed Alshamrani:

Sampan eyes, white underneath. That and his nationality definitely make him the kind of foreigner I would bring into my country, hand a rifle to and teach the skills to reenact 9/11. The tops of his ears are turned out, suggesting he wears glasses a lot. Wide mouth means he likes to talk, consistent with slightly-rounded eyebrows indicating a balance between rational & social towards other people. The nose might suggest a poor general attitude but no pic had sufficient detail to be sure.

The mustache indicates he’s a pornography film actor. Okay, okay, that’s not true. OR IS IT? Because that’s where his nickname came from!

Recap from; dangit, the links didn’t get re-copied! I’m too lazy.

Pensacola NAS Active Shooter Was Saudi National: Reports

An active shooter who was a Saudi national opened fire in a classroom building at Naval Air Station in Pensacola, Florida, killing three people and wounding eight more. The gunman is now dead, according to the Escambia County Sheriff’s Department. Authorities described the horrific scene as looking “like a movie,” but it was all too real. The shooter was identified as Mohammed Saeed Alshamrani.

According to The New York Times, the gunman has been identified as a Saudi national. He was an aviation student, who served in the Saudi Air Force according to The Associated Press, which added that “military from around the globe” are at Pensacola NAS for training.

*twitch* A Saudi national came to America to practice aviation. *twitch* Nothing makes me think the post-9/11 Gulf Wars were worth fighting as much as watching my Air Force train the next generation of Saudi “Mohammed”s. /sarc

The shooting erupted in a classroom building, authorities said in a press conference. Alshamrani was a member of the Saudi Air Force and the Florida governor says the Saudi government now owes the victims in Pensacola a debt.

Two of the victims have been named: Mohammed Haitham and Joshua Watson. You can read about their lives here. The third victim has not yet been named.

Well, that’s a welcome change. It’s the fight of the century, Mohammed vs Mohammed! Speculation runs wild! Who will win?

Answer, America. HAH!

On a serious note, this was not a jihad attack if fellow Muslims were targeted. Although that’s not what M. Saeed said in his manifesto:

Did Pensacola Shooter Mohammed Alshamrani Have a Twitter Manifesto?

The alleged Twitter manifesto reads, “O American people, I’m not against you for just being American, I don’t hate you because your freedoms, I hate you because every day you supporting funding and committing crimes not only against Muslims but also humanity. I’m against evil, and America as a whole has turned into a nation of evil. What I see from America is the supporting of Israel which is invasion of Muslim countries, I see invasion of many countries by it’s (sic) troops, I see Guantanamo Bay. I see cruise missiles, cluster bombs, and UAV.” The tweet is dated the morning of the attack on December 6, 2019.

Sounds like he’s taking out his frustrations on the US military specifically rather than America generally, an improvement over 9/11. American servicemen are even legit targets for that kind of thing. (military targets instead of civilian targets) Alas, his noble-sounding words sounded a bit less noble after this incident came to national attention:

[from fox news, I think]

Pensacola Naval shooter was ‘infuriated’ after instructor nicknamed him ‘Porn Stash’: report

By Greg Norman, 9 December 2019

The Saudi national who killed three people during last week’s shooting spree at Naval Air Station Pensacola filed a complaint against one of his instructors earlier this year alleging that he had called him “Porn Stash” — a nickname that “infuriated” him, a report says.

Mohammed Alshamrani, who prepared the document with the help of two American classmates, according to The New York Times, claimed teacher James Day labeled him with the term at the end of a meteorology class in April.

In the complaint, Alshamrani wrote that Day was asking about 10 students around the room if they had any questions before dismissal. When he turned to Alshamrani, Day allegedly addressed him as “Porn Stash.”

“Laughing, he continued to ask, ‘What? Have you not seen a porn star before?’” Alshamrani reportedly wrote in the complaint. “After I did not respond, he just let go of the subject.”

A well-adjusted exchange student would have replied with a cameo appearance offer after a brief hesitation to think up a comeback.

The nickname is a reference to the stereotype that adult male film stars have mustaches. It was spelled “porn stash” as opposed to “porn ‘stache” in the official complaint.

You can’t intentionally sport a huge, identifying facial feature without this kind of teasing from peers who need something obvious with which to attempt a personal connection… seeing as they DON’T HAVE A COMMON CULTURE!

“I was infuriated as to why he would say that in front of the class,” the Times quoted Alshamrani as saying.

Day is employed by Delaware Resource Group of Oklahoma, a subcontractor to CAE USA, which offers instruction to aviation students in the civilian and military fields, according to the newspaper.

Contra popular entertainment, most mercenaries are training officers or glorified security rather than high-risk, deniable CIA operators.

Following the alleged incident, Alshamrani reported it to CAE USA’s managers, The New York Times says. The company offered to have Day apologize, but Alshamrani rejected that proposal and instead talked with an office in the Navy that handles international students, the newspaper added, citing a person who spoke with Alshamrani after he filed the complaint.

Little goat fucker couldn’t take a joke OR an apology.

That same person said numerous government employees believed Day should be disciplined, yet he continued to teach.

About a week after the alleged incident, Day was paired up with Alshamrani for simulated flight training, The New York Times reported. When the Saudi found out, he complained to CAE USA and got the session rescheduled with another instructor, it added.

Brian Busey, the president of Delaware Resource Group of Oklahoma, told the Times that his company is cooperating with the FBI’s investigation into Friday’s shooting and that it had taken care of the alleged classroom incident in April.

“Appropriate personnel action was taken regarding the incident in question, corrective action was taken, the matter was closed back in April, and we have no further comment,” Busey said.

I bet the discipline was one tweet. “Jim dont tease the sand rats k thx.”

There is no indication yet that it had any connection to the shooting spree, in which Alshamrani gunned down three fellow sailors before being taken out by responding police officers.

Yeah? Let’s recap that manifesto:

O American people, I’m not against you for just being American, I don’t hate you because your freedoms, I hate you because every day you supporting funding and committing crimes not only against Muslims but also humanity.

“…because he called me Porn Stash and you still give the guy a paycheck! It’s on, you fat lazy ‘Muricans! You are evil!”

I’m against evil, and America as a whole has turned into a nation of evil.

“…If this is your sense of humor!”

What I see from America is the supporting of Israel which is invasion of Muslim countries, I see invasion of many countries by it’s (sic) troops, I see Guantanamo Bay. I see cruise missiles, cluster bombs, and UAV.”

“Thank you for listening to my complaint. Have a nice day and death unto Israel. Sincerely, signed Mohammed.”

Context is everything.

Little girl chloroformed, raped in ‘macabre’ house of death: Cops

Little girl chloroformed, raped in ‘macabre’ house of death: Cops

By KC Wildmoon, 21 December 2019

Eyes show too much white and I would guess him a loner from his thin nose and small mouth.

A Colorado man has been charged with killing a 9-year-old girl with chloroform while raping her, the Grand Junction Sentinel reported on Friday.

Jeffrey Beagley, 34, was arrested on December 13 and charged with first-degree murder, child abuse resulting in death, reckless manslaughter, attempted sex assault on a child by a person in a position of trust, sexual exploitation of children, and invasion of privacy for sexual gratification. The affidavit for his arrest, however, was sealed until Wednesday.

Indicating that the cops dotted every I and crossed every T on this one.

The affidavit said that investigators found an empty chloroform bottle with a rag in a shed behind the home where the little girl died on November 9. The chloroform had been delivered to Beagley the day before. Additionally, the Sentinel reported, the Mesa County Coroner ruled the girl’s death a homicide on December 13 saying she had extremely high levels of the drug in her system.

Beagley called emergency responders on the morning of November 9, saying he had found the girl unresponsive when he woke up. The girl’s mother told detectives she had seen Beagley asleep with the little girl and her sister when she came home the night before. She said she awoke to Beagley’s screams.

The girl’s mother needs to be publicly hanged. No chance, none, that she wasn’t knowingly pimping out her own children to a child molester. Where’s Daddy? Debtor’s prison in a different state, likely as not.

Detectives described a disturbing scene in and around the house when the girl died. In the shed, they found a “tent-like” structure with pillows and blankets that appeared to have been built for “privacy and seclusion,” KKCO reported.

They also found computers and other electronic devices with “a lot” of child pornography along with video showing the victim taken from a hidden camera in the house. Detectives said a thumb drive contained images of sex acts between adults and children that had been “digitally altered” to replace the adult’s face with Beagley’s.

Beagly doesn’t need to be charged. He needs to be released at the exact moment every cop in Denver takes his lunch break, if you catch my meaning.

And somebody did! A Happy New Year is upon us!

Alleged Pedophile Dies in Colorado Jail Days After Arrest

By Katherine Rodriguez, 28 December 2019

A Colorado man accused of murdering a nine-year-old with chloroform to sexually assault her in November died Monday after authorities found him unresponsive in his jail cell.

Officials found Jeffrey Beagley, 34, of Grand Junction, unresponsive in his jail cell, and he was officially declared dead at the hospital, the Daily Sentinel reported.

Authorities say that the cause of death for Jeffrey Beagley is yet to be determined, adding that the investigation is ongoing and contingent upon the results of toxicology tests.

Please be chloroform!

Beagley had been facing multiple charges, including first-degree murder, reckless manslaughter, child abuse resulting in death, and attempted sexual assault.

Autopsy results confirmed that the girl died of chloroform poisoning.

Investigators have not publicly released Beagley’s relationship with the girl.

During a search of the property in the shed where the girl was found, investigators found a tarp made into a privacy tent containing sex toys, a computer, pillows and blankets, and a bottle of chloroform, KKTV reported.

The investigation is ongoing so we don’t know who that masked man was. It would be very fitting if he was a Daddy in debtor’s prison.

Alas, Colorado’s governor… a homosexual Jew, Jared Polis… is very unlikely to issue the well-earned pardon.


Physiognomy: Child Maltreatment

This topic is by request but I put it off for a few days after Christmas because it didn’t fit the holiday mood.

21 December 2019

A Florida couple who told police they fed their children a vegan diet of only raw fruit and vegetables was charged with murder Wednesday months after their 18-month old son allegedly starved to death in their home.

Ryan Patrick O’Leary, 30, and Sheila O’Leary, 35, of Cape Coral, were indicted by a grand jury on charges of first-degree murder and other charges, State Attorney Amira Fox said.

The guy ‘s face is very neutral. Lots of right angles for rational thinking. Thick eyebrows and forehead lines indicate intelligence. Flat cheeks, modest chin/jaw and thin nose suggest a lack of dominance and social energy. The inner ear cup is larger than the outer ear cup, indicating strong separation of internal and external worlds. Knowing what we do about his family life, that suggests he was easily able to keep the maltreatment secret; but this is not confirmed by the left eye being more guarded than the right, which one would expect.

He looks like an ordinary guy, not given to emotion but perhaps lacking in motivation and confidence as well.

The wife has red flags, particularly frizzy hair for disorderly thoughts and borderline sampan eyes (a lot of white above/below iris). Angled eyebrows indicate conflict, as opposed to flat rational or curved social eyebrows. Also a thin nose for low social energy, so I’d expect the couple to not hold a lot of parties at the best of times.

It’s not hard to believe she was psycho enough to maltreat her kids, but it’s a mystery why he went along with it. Physiognomy doesn’t offer a reason but religion does.

The mother called police on Sept. 27 when police said she said she noticed her 18-month-old son had gone cold and stopped breathing. The father tried to resuscitate him, police said. Paramedics pronounced the boy dead at the home in Lee County when they arrived, Fort Myers News-Press reported.

He weighed 17 pounds, the average weight of a seven-month-old, according to the police report. Sheila O’Leary allegedly told officers the family eats a vegan diet and she fed her children raw fruits and vegetables – mostly mangoes, bananas, avocados, and rambutans.

I’ve seen similar behavior in the Church. A while back, some Charismatic types got the notion that going to a doctor proved a lack of faith in God. Their stories made the news when children began dying of easily treatable diseases and similar troubles.

They weren’t monsters. They prayed for miracles and when none happened, they grieved and buried their dead. They simply held their beliefs more strongly than reality.

Which brings us to veganism.

The human body needs animal protein to be healthy. Believing otherwise is a rejection of reality. But people are wired first to believe and only then to understand, if they even care to try. There are few damnations of atheism more effective than watching people who are well-fed and healthy, kill themselves from loneliness or throw themselves into extreme political movements for no personal gain.

This couple made a religion out of their diet. Every face shape is capable of that.

The parents were arrested last month after a medical examiner ruled that their child had died due to malnutrition, including dehydration. They turned themselves in on Nov. 6 and were initially charged with aggravated manslaughter. They were being held on a $250,000 bond each. They were arraigned in court on Monday. The charges against them were upgraded Wednesday.

The indictment related to three other children, ages 3, 5 and 11, who allegedly suffered from child abuse and extreme neglect at the same home, Fox said. Officers said the children appeared small for their ages and had a yellowish complexion. One child had blackened, decaying teeth, the Washington Examiner reported. Two of the children, ages 3 and 5, were placed in state custody. The 11-year-old is in the care of the child’s biological father in Virginia.

So, wifey divorced & remarried to a vegan supremacist? And Florida is a long way from Virginia. She took the kid and ran.

That’s how you can recognize Christianity as the correct religion. Children need their physical fathers and humanity needs its spiritual God the Father.


Mark Galli Burns His Readers, Er, Bridges

I finally got around to reading Christianity Today editor’s screed against Trump. It’s such a predictable narrative, it’s almost a mad lib.

  1. Claim the moral high ground.
  2. Claim to have been the target’s friend.
  3. Act shocked and hurt at the (often imaginary or unintended) offense by target.
  4. Sorrowfully conclude that you must do what you’ve been (not so) secretly lusting to do for a very long time.
  5. Optional, project like an Imax theater.

Trump Should Be Removed from Office

By Mark Galli, 19 December 2019

I’m not Trump’s fan but I also looked into the Ukraine scandal. It’s legit and I’m pissed beyond words, and if nobody hangs for it then I’ll be okay with removing Trump from office. But until then, he keeps both the bread and the circuses coming; the Pajeet Commu-nazis all promise only circuses.

In our founding documents, Billy Graham explains that Christianity Today will help evangelical Christians interpret the news in a manner that reflects their faith. The impeachment of Donald Trump is a significant event in the story of our republic. It requires comment.

Hmm. Segue:

In 1956 Billy Graham felt the urgent need for balanced reporting, biblical commentary, and a loving posture on the social, cultural and theological trends, issues, and opportunities facing Christians.

That’s why Billy founded Christianity Today.

Don’t give yourself airs, Mr. Galli. You’re a nominally Christian newzine, a less reputable position than my being a Christian nominal-newzine. See, I can Step One too.

End segue.

Our nonprofit, global media ministry has shaped the minds and hearts of pastors, thought leaders, and culture makers ever since.

Every devout reader of yours twitched at “nonprofit, global media”.

The typical CT approach is to stay above the fray and allow Christians with different political convictions to make their arguments in the public square, to encourage all to pursue justice according to their convictions and treat their political opposition as charitably as possible. We want CT to be a place that welcomes Christians from across the political spectrum, and reminds everyone that politics is not the end and purpose of our being. We take pride in the fact, for instance, that politics does not dominate our homepage.

Step 1: Claim the moral high ground, check.

That said, we do feel it necessary from time to time to make our own opinions on political matters clear—always, as Graham encouraged us, doing so with both conviction and love. We love and pray for our president, as we love and pray for leaders (as well as ordinary citizens) on both sides of the political aisle.

Let’s grant this to the president: The Democrats have had it out for him from day one, and therefore nearly everything they do is under a cloud of partisan suspicion. This has led many to suspect not only motives but facts in these recent impeachment hearings. And, no, Mr. Trump did not have a serious opportunity to offer his side of the story in the House hearings on impeachment.

Step 2: Claim to have been the target’s friend, check.

But the facts in this instance are unambiguous: The president of the United States attempted to use his political power to coerce a foreign leader to harass and discredit one of the president’s political opponents. That is not only a violation of the Constitution; more importantly, it is profoundly immoral.

As sins go, premeditated oath-breaking is far worse than an incident of immorality. Galli is also provably wrong about POTUS ordering the Ukraine to discredit Joe Biden. A casual observer would wonder how a tiny country on the far side of the planet COULD discredit Biden unless he was already doing dirty in their backyard.

Others have pointed that out, of course, but I’ll point out this: Galli doesn’t sound hurt by what Trump did. I’ve been through a few online letdowns myself, such as with Vox Day and Turd Flinging Monkey, documented on this blog. Emotions get raw and show through the writing.

None of this sterile “I join his enemies because he had a moral oopsie”.

The reason many are not shocked about this is that this president has dumbed down the idea of morality in his administration. He has hired and fired a number of people who are now convicted criminals. He himself has admitted to immoral actions in business and his relationship with women, about which he remains proud. His Twitter feed alone—with its habitual string of mischaracterizations, lies, and slanders—is a near perfect example of a human being who is morally lost and confused.

Blah, blah, blah. “He associated with people that he fired when he learned they were criminals!” Oh, please. These accusations are more canned than Spam.

Fine then, call him a bad Christian. I do. But being a good Christian is not a requirement for being a good President. Is America better off at the end of Trump 1.0 than it was at the beginning? Yes.

Trump’s evangelical supporters have pointed to his Supreme Court nominees, his defense of religious liberty, and his stewardship of the economy, among other things, as achievements that justify their support of the president. We believe the impeachment hearings have made it absolutely clear, in a way the Mueller investigation did not…

Did it hurt, little termite? Did it hurt when Mueller came back with nothing but Trump’s black book of hot 10 whores? It looked like it hurt. All you liberals were making permanent sneers and squeaking noises for weeks on CNN.

…that President Trump has abused his authority for personal gain and betrayed his constitutional oath. The impeachment hearings have illuminated the president’s moral deficiencies for all to see. This…

…is exactly the squeaking noises I was just talking about. It DID hurt, dinnit? Hell, I want Trump to stay in office just because you termites hate him so much. The floor show has been SPECTACULAR and yes, I WILL vote for another four years of him twisting your prickly panties.

This damages the institution of the presidency, damages the reputation of our country, and damages both the spirit and the future of our people. None of the president’s positives can balance the moral and political danger we face under a leader of such grossly immoral character.

Step 3, Act shocked and hurt, check.

This concern for the character of our national leader is not new in CT. In 1998, we wrote this:

He references an editorial criticizing Bill Clinton. Interesting thing, however: that old editorial has no byline. Apparently, nobody wanted to take credit for calling out Slick Willie. Galli himself didn’t write it, either, carefully using “we” instead of “I”.

Unfortunately, the words that we applied to Mr. Clinton 20 years ago apply almost perfectly to our current president. Whether Mr. Trump should be removed from office by the Senate or by popular vote next election—that is a matter of prudential judgment. That he should be removed, we believe, is not a matter of partisan loyalties but loyalty to the Creator of the Ten Commandments.

Now who’s breaking the Constitution, Mr. Galli? No religious test for office, remember? Heck, I violate the Ten Commandments at least weekly because Sunday is just another day to me. You don’t touch the pepperoni on my pizza, either!

We have reserved judgment on Mr. Trump for years now. Some have criticized us for our reserve. But when it comes to condemning the behavior of another, patient charity must come first. So we have done our best to give evangelical Trump supporters their due, to try to understand their point of view, to see the prudential nature of so many political decisions they have made regarding Mr. Trump.

Wait, Galli reserved judgment of Trump’s supporters instead of Trump? I must admit, that’s a bit off script. And anti-Christian. Christ would have had him speak up quickly, to prevent deception. Or at turns, to have his own doubts about Trump assured.

To use an old cliché, it’s time to call a spade a spade, to say that no matter how many hands we win in this political poker game, we are playing with a stacked deck of gross immorality and ethical incompetence. And just when we think it’s time to push all our chips to the center of the table, that’s when the whole game will come crashing down. It will crash down on the reputation of evangelical religion and on the world’s understanding of the gospel. And it will come crashing down on a nation of men and women whose welfare is also our concern.

Step 4, Sorrowfully conclude that you must do what you’ve been (not so) secretly lusting to do for a very long time, check… partially. Galli changed focus from attacking Trump to attacking his evangelical readership. That’s a terrible way to keep one’s job and explains much of the resulting furor.

To the many evangelicals who continue to support Mr. Trump in spite of his blackened moral record, we might say this: Remember who you are and whom you serve. Consider how your justification of Mr. Trump influences your witness to your Lord and Savior.

Okay, Mark Galli, you craven bitch of Satan, you’ll get it but you ain’t gonna like it. Calling out evil is Christ’s Step 1.

Consider what an unbelieving world will say if you continue to brush off Mr. Trump’s immoral words and behavior in the cause of political expediency.

Better idea. How about we Christians stop giving a fricking, flying God-damn for the world’s opinion and care exclusively about God’s opinion?

If we don’t reverse course now, will anyone take anything we say about justice and righteousness with any seriousness for decades to come?

Thirty years too late, you false Christian. Because of entryists and cuckolds like you, acting under your watch and leadership, the Church has already lost all credibility. Not most of it. All. You have been that faithless to God.

Can we say with a straight face that abortion is a great evil that cannot be tolerated and, with the same straight face, say that the bent and broken character of our nation’s leader doesn’t really matter in the end?

We’ll never know, because YOU cannot say with a straight face that if abortion is murder then the mother is the murderer and she should be put to death in accordance with God’s will. Trump’s character is solid, if admittedly imperfect: it doesn’t change. We know who he is. Which makes him infinitely more trustworthy to God and men than scum like you who hide your crimes and true beliefs until two holiday weeks before your retirement.

That’s right. Galli announced his resignation in October, effective 3 January 2019, so he threw this j’accuse out the window while driving into the sunset of retirement.

Because it wasn’t Trump he hated in this editorial. Editor Mark Galli hated on his own, evangelical readers for liking Trump, and sneered at them the moment his imminent retirement protected him from retaliation.

Galli, You. Craven. Bitch. Of. Satan. The greatest thrill is getting away with evil.

Bad Inmate! Have A Cookie!

No wonder patriarchy is so hated! We men have been doing criminal justice wrong for centuries! We’ve been using truncheons and manacles when the reason hardened felons were breaking the rules in the first place is because they needed a glass of warm milk and a playdate with the gang they testified against.

California jails use kinder approach to solitary confinement

By AP, 26 December 2019

Remember that word: “kinder”. There will be a quiz.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — An inmate in solitary confinement at a California jail was refusing to leave his cell. The jailers’ usual response: Send an “extraction team” of corrections officers to burst into the cell and drag him out.

But not in Contra Costa County, one of three in the state using a kinder, gentler approach in response to inmate lawsuits, a policy change that experts say could be a national model for reducing the use of isolation cells.

So the inmate was asked: “What if we gave you a couple extra cookies and another sandwich? Would you move?” recalled Don Specter, the nonprofit Prison Law Office director who negotiated the new policies. “He said yes. … They were like, ‘Wow.’”

Just when you think care-based morality can’t possibly be more cynically implemented.

Per 6 of 24 staff members are male. A special quote from the office manager’s bio: “Ashley also is the human guardian of Scout, the Golden Retriever who greets all visitors to our office.”

Don Specter. Not a good picture but the convex nose is an untrusting/shrewd nose. Triangular nostrils (which I suspect but can’t confirm) would add ill temper to that. Interestingly, the middle third of his face (status/ambition) is the smallest and the intellectual top would be the largest except for his adding the beard to the pragmatic bottom third, so he’s more interested in results than posturing. A true believer in Marxist socialism who likely feels guilt for being smart/white.

In other words, he wasn’t mocking the inmate.

More than a quarter of U.S. states and numerous smaller jurisdictions are looking for ways to reduce the use of solitary confinement, according to the Vera Institute of Justice, which encourages alternatives to a practice behavioral experts say is dehumanizing and can worsen mental illness.

17 of 58 staff are male. Yep, care-based morality.

This is vice-president Mary Crowley of Vera Institute of Justice. I couldn’t confirm if she’s related to Aleister Crowley. Unlikely since he was a European but she certainly resembles that family tree.

The Scarecrow is running Gotham Prison!

The new policies in California came after Specter’s firm sued seven of California’s 58 counties, alleging that conditions had grown inhumane as jails absorbed inmates who previously would have served their sentences in state prisons. The state in 2011 began sending less serious offenders to local jails for years at a time to ease crowding in state penitentiaries.

Specter should be forced to pay for a new prison if he doesn’t like the current solutions to overcrowding. No more of this point-and-shrieking without consequences; in fact, he probably doesn’t even want the problem solved. Like most SJWs, he justifies his existence and agenda by claiming to be the spokesman for a large group of victims. Never mind that the group in question usually didn’t choose him and might not even know he exists, and in this case are too convicted-felon to count as victims anyway. You should listen to him because he represents VICTIMS OF THE SYSTEM!

Tangible results would only reduce his bargaining power.

Some jurisdictions nationwide are banning isolation for young offenders, pregnant women or those with mental health diagnoses. The California counties’ approach of generally limiting it to those who engage in continued violent behavior has dramatically reduced the number of inmates in isolation and the length of time they stay there.

Nothing telegraphs the SJW’s intentions for society as clearly as their limitless excuses for the criminally insane.

Contra Costa started 2019 with about 100 people in solitary, most for more than a year. It had just three in isolation cells by December, after officials began using the new approach.

Come on, now. Don’t tell me that the inmates are better behaved now that they’re being given cookies instead of punishments. Don’t suggest to me that “solitary is a bad idea” is the same thing as “nobody is using solitary anymore”. I’m weary of being lied to.

Sacramento County also is following the policy pioneered by Santa Clara County, while Fresno County is considering it. Among other things, it encourages the use of low-cost incentives to reward good behavior, like the opportunity to listen to the radio, watch a movie or get an extra snack.

Good children get an extra milk carton! COME ON, ADMIT THE TRUTH!

Sacramento County has cut its isolated population roughly in half, to about 60 inmates, said Lt. Alex McCamy: “It’s a limited time frame and a limited group, but the initial impression is positive.”

Rick Raemisch, who restricted the use of solitary confinement when he headed Colorado’s prison system, said the violent, tense, dirty conditions in Santa Clara County’s jail improved markedly with the new policy.

“Think of yourself being in a cell the size of a parking space for 23 hours a day,” said Raemisch, who consulted with county officials. “At a minimum you’re going to get angry, and when you get angry you’re going to fight back.”

No, at a minimum I’d be desperate to get out of there and stretch my legs. Solitary is generally used as a punishment because people are social animals. This is a lie, that solitary confinement CREATES problems and most inmates just need a little positive encouragement to be helpful members of their artificial society.

If Breitbart doesn’t say it soon then I’ll grab some articles to prove this.

Inmates nationwide are most often segregated for nonviolent “nuisance infractions” like smoking, cursing, disobeying orders or having unauthorized items from the commissary, said the Vera Institute’s Sara Sullivan.

Disobedience is inherently violent. I doubt VERY much that smoking and cursing in a prison are punishable offenses.

Santa Clara County once locked a woman in solitary confinement for 2 1/2 years for talking back to correctional officers or yelling and banging on her cell door with other detainees, according to Specter’s lawsuit.

“She’s openly defying us and disturbing the entire cellblock with her insane shrieking and attempts to damage property.”

“Go in there and give her a hug and a snack! But no rough stuff, there’s been no violence yet!”

Seriously, open defiance to authority is NOT ACCEPTABLE. That way lies anarchy. Anybody who doesn’t understand this, is not emotionally healthy. “Spare the rod and the inmate will get the wrong idea.”

“There’s been a decades-long effort to reform solitary, especially in prisons. But what we haven’t seen is a paired reform effort for jails,” said Amy Fettig, director of the American Civil Liberty Union’s Stop Solitary campaign. “In Santa Clara what we’re seeing is an attempt to reform the whole process.”

Another witch. Or, maybe a commissar. Male privilege does nasty things to women!

Santa Clara County Sheriff Laurie Smith said she and many deputies were initially skeptical. “It has surprised me, and I think it’s very, very good for our inmates,” she said. “I think what we’re doing is correct, and I think it’s working.”

Less witch and more alcoholic, I’d guess.

Smith said she remains concerned that assaults on staff are up. She said the increase is logical, however, since inmates locked in their cells virtually around the clock have little opportunity to assault anyone.

THANK YOU! Ohmigawd, thank you finally! It’s like I can breathe again. At the end of the article it turns out that, yes, Evil White Men DID create solitary confinement for a purpose other than inciting prison riots!

What a stupid, bullshit lie. “If you punish convicted felons less then they’ll be nice and behave.” Yeah, no, that’s how the LAW-ABIDING behave.

Quiz time! Why are jails persisting in not punishing inmate conduct?

In order to be _______ to them. Not meaning the guards. Not meaning the abused inmates. Nooo, we must be kinder to the rebellious!

Fuck that noise. Bring back the whipping post and strap those devils in!

Sgt. Todd Kendrick, president of the county’s correctional officers association, attributed the increase to other less restrictive jail policies as well as the easing of solitary confinement. He and Smith both called for increased staffing.

You don’t need more guards. You need the guards you do have to stop begging the criminals to behave and start putting down the hurt when they don’t. A billion guards won’t help if none of them are allowed to use a stick.

WHY ARE PRISON OFFICIALS LISTENING TO THESE WITCHES AND MARXISTS?!? One, it defies all common sense, and two, after making the adjustments they demand you won’t ever enjoy your job again.

You wouldn’t even raise a child like this. Beg the kid to behave no matter how badly he behaves, until finally he goes violent and… and what then? Do you blame the neighbor or shoot him dead?

Baby Mommas aren’t just running the ghetto anymore.

Smith said the county fell into a pattern of protectively isolating inmates to separate purported gang members and those charged with murder and to safeguard jailhouse informants or sex offenders for fear they would be harmed. Officials sought to improve after several major incidents, including deaths in custody.

Oh, what a horrible pattern of injustice. I bet those “deaths in custody” didn’t happen in solitary; even Jeffrey Epstein didn’t kill himself. And yes, now is a good time to discuss protective custody, which the Witches of Berkeley also want to do away with.

One inmate refused for 1½ years to leave solitary because he had testified against other gang members, recalled Capt. Thomas Duran, who coordinates the program.

But he saw other longtime inmates leaving segregation and eventually agreed to try it. Rather than put him immediately in with other inmates, deputies paired him with a single inmate — then two other inmates, then four and so on.

He spent more and more time out of his solitary cell until he was fully back into the general jail population.

“We’re trying to set the inmates up not to fail,” Duran said.

Yeah. You’re setting them up to get killed. Did that informant come out because he thought the threat was gone, or because he was pushed out by Nanny deputies who thought he needed a playdate with his old friends?


The Gift That Keeps On Giving: Florida Man!

This one’s a quickie while I wait for family to arrive.

Trimming the ‘Trees’: Florida Man Hands Out Marijuana for Christmas

By Nate Church, 25 December 2019

A St. Petersburg, Florida, man was arrested on Saturday for handing out weed to passers-by for Christmas.

“Let’s party like it’s 4-20-19-99!”

Richard Ellis Spurrier, 67, was taken into custody with 45 grams of marijuana on his person. Spurrier was standing on 16 2nd Street North, handing out ganja to anyone who might need fuel for a gingerbread binge. According to the Pinellas County arrest report, Spurrier freely admitted his act of charity was “because it was Christmas.”

So, is that a “naughty” gift or a “nice” gift? Neither, because this ain’t Santa:

Spurrier was arrested for possession with intent to sell, though it seems unlikely that his 1.6 ounces would have gotten very far even if he had charged. After he was taken into custody, police also found a sword — yes, a sword — inside a cane in his car. Spurrier did not specify whether that was because it was Christmas, or just because this is Florida.

I’ve never understood the appeal of a sword cane. The cane itself is a perfectly reasonable club, especially if you weight the top with a bit of lead. But by that logic, you should simply use a golf club. The pre-bent ones are cheap.

He was released from Pinellas County Jail on Sunday.

Because even the jailer didn’t think he was worth working Christmas for.


What Is the Opposite Of Feminism?

I wish I was a better evangelist. Some unbelievers get so close to the truth of Christ that life just isn’t fair, and one wishes he could help them over that last tiny hump. Today, the Z-man is one synapse away from independently confirming Original Sin.

Right-Wing Feminism

Right-Wing Feminism

Posted on December 15, 2019

Feminism is a term that is exclusively associated with left-wing activism and generally associated with the more radical elements of the culture war. Modern feminists are the emotionally disturbed old maids in the human resource department, stalking about, looking for unapproved words and thoughts. These are the people purging social media of anything funny or interesting. While true, it disguises the fact that feminism is as much a part of the conventional Right as it is the Left.

Correct. Feminism started on the Left because Socialism is the ideology of female envy and Sisterhood. This does not make masculine ideologies immune to infiltration and subversion.

At its core, feminism is the product of egalitarianism. If all men are created equal, in the moral sense, then surely all women are equal. Further, if all men are equal and all women are equal, in a moral sense, then men and women must also be equal and should therefore be treated as equals. It is this sense of moral equality that drove first wave feminism to demand equal contract, marriage, parenting, and property rights for women. Morally equal people should be legally equal.

That old canard? Notice it was written in the Declaration of Independence and is not an actual law to be obeyed. The idea is that no man has a divine right to rule over another, very relevant in a declaration to George that he ain’t the boss of us no mo’. Who said anything about women? Women aren’t men.

It is preposterous, knowing what we Red-Pilled do about female nature, that the early feminists were motivated by an 18th-century statement of equality. “We want to upset the entire social order because this one clause in an old legal document is not being implemented as completely as it should be.” No, women do not make that kind of principled, ideological stand. Certainly not against inconsistencies in logic!

So, what were the early feminists’ REAL motivations?

From there, of course, feminism was transformed into a weapon to undermine the mores of white society. Second wave feminism focused on destroying family life through the promotion of divorce and sexual degeneracy. Third wave feminism focused on destroying the very notion of womanhood with the promotion of bizarre sexual fetishes and homosexuality. Fourth wave feminism focuses on the promotion of emotionally unstable women making a nuisance of themselves on-line.

Their motivations were resource collection and envy of “male privilege”. The servant wanted to rebel against her master with the resources of government. Why else would the Nanny State despise lifetime monogamy so much? It’s only the most successful, provably healthy social construct in human history.

Don’t look at what women say. (“Equality!”) Look at what they do. (Shack up with one exotic boyfriend after another while hanging out with homosexuals until she reaches menopause and has her last egg fertilized by a laboratory, while the government absolves her of consequences and arrests all creeps on her say-so. What’s missing in that picture? A husband restraining her behavior.)

Just as Eve rebelled against Adam & God by obeying a new master, America’s women rebelled by allying with gov’t (suitably modified) so they wouldn’t have to submit to a husband.

The lurch into what amounts to the promotion of female psychosis obscures the fact that feminism in a stock part of conventional conservatism. It’s not at the point of pushing weird sexual practices and physical mutilation, but so-called conservatism fully embraces the egalitarianism of first wave feminism and the moral license of second wave feminism.

Here’s the synapse that misfired. Conservatism (whatever that is) is not feminism. Rather, it is sabotaged by feminism in the form of conservative men being congenitally unable to tell a woman no. Z provides a helpful example:

You see that in social media characters targeting conservative women, like this one that has 165,000 followers on twitter.

Mindy Robinson

Hmm, does that look like a Skrillex to you?

Yep, Skrillex, but plenty enough glamour shots show her with intact hair so I don’t know if she grew it back after she went into politics.

Even a blonde like Mindy knew to conceal her damaged hair when appealing to men… conservative or otherwise (excluding the feminized, of course).

Note that her act is a blend of pinup girl bimbo, outrageous gun advocacy and, of course, lots of red, white and blue. That’s the core of conservative feminism. It is a blend of mostly male habits like shooting guns and riding motorcycles, frosted with the vulgar sex appeal of Hollywood and over-the-top patriotism. Go through that twitter feed and it is basically just 1990’s Conservative Inc. packaged for what the people behind it assume is the target audience, people they generally detest.

That first pic is a postcard of entryism. A solid 9 on the hot-crazy-with-some-crazy-on-the-side Matrix, visibly infected with hatred for men… why else shave off a third of her otherwise carefully maintained hair?… yet she tilts her head to hide the damage and waves a gun to distract from her thousand-cock stare…

…So that men can play their role in Original Sin and desire her even after she’s rebelled. Z-man correctly notices that she’s still playing to play the leader instead of getting busy in the kitchen.

Her gun is itself is a symbol of rebellion. Why do American men value the Second Amendment? Because it allows us to rebel against authority when we need to. Yet another good reason to not arm women, whom God Himself wants in submission to authority. But I digress to my don’t-arm-women beliefs. The important thing here is that she’s Team Feminist snaking into the warm sentiments of Conservatism, Inc. That wouldn’t be necessary if feminism was a belief of Conservatism.

That’s the important part of it. The people behind these accounts are often nothing like the marketing. The Reagan Battalion, for example, were left-wing Orthodox Jews, buddies of Ben Shapiro, by the way. One guy was Benny Polatseck, public relations consultant, and the other was Yossi Gestetner, a marketing guy. They were also tied to the NeverTrump operation. The point being is that Mindy Robinson probably looks more like Harvey Weinstein than the pictures on that twitter account.

This is inconsistent with Trump recently enjoying 93% approval from Orthodox Jews but let’s skip that digression.

Even so, what is sold to conservative women is really just feminism with lots of conventional conservative decorations. The “strong conservative women” is independent, patriotic, shoots guns and so on. The idealized conservative women is now 1970’s Clinton Eastwood with a vagina and some tasteful nudes on her social media profile. Conservative women are supposed to display all of the aggressive male attributes one used to associate with action heroes.

Again, this is better described as what women are selling to conservative men. This wouldn’t be a problem except men are tempted to enable that kind of rebellion regardless of political beliefs. That’s very strange when you think about it. Men have loved dogs and horses without fantasizing about them becoming our equals.We get married fantasizing about how much wifey will make our lives happier and easier. Said fantasy rarely involving a whip and no nookie.

And yet, there’s a part of the male soul that wants to not notice her Skrillex, not remember that God created woman for man’s service and eagerly accept her as a peer and not a servant. Why? I don’t fantasize about having sex with somebody stronger than me and hope that my fellow man doesn’t, either. She’s not a sex symbol, not really. She’s a symbol of… rebellion… and why are so many men okay with that? It is not a rational position.

Z-Man even agrees:

More important, it is every bit as socially destructive as the left-wing variant of feminism, because it denies the very essence of the sexes. Men and women are complimentary not just biologically, but socially. What makes settled society possible is a division of labor that goes beyond the physical. What distinguishes West from East is that in the West, this division of labor maximizes the utility of both sexes. Women are not just baby makers, but the glue that holds together local community.

Hmm, a second synapse misfired. Women are just baby makers, not the glue holding a community together. It’s men that build community, as is demonstrated today by society falling apart while women bring in ‘noble savages’ by the boatload.

It’s okay to ‘just make babies’. It’s an honorable job that needs doing, women find it a very rewarding experience, and men have a lot of fun getting the process going. But women always envy men our ‘male privilege’ then find out that managing a society is too much for them. You see this in the women that go through college, get licensed as a doctor or something and then quit to ‘just make babies’.

Mud-hut civilizations are matriarchies practically by definition.

The promotion of women and men as equal in all things has had the devastating effect of destroying the traditional role of women. With it has gone the social capital that made western societies so resilient. Promoting right-wing women with guns is every bit as damaging as portraying them as a butch lesbians playing the traditional male roles in television and film. It is a discrediting of the tradition in favor of the novel, which is useless and unwanted.

Yes! Exactly, Z-Man! But their motivation is not some theoretical construct like “equality”. It’s female rebellion against men and the men who feel a strange excitement at facilitating that rebellion.

Which is exactly what Christianity describes as the fatal flaw in the human soul.

You’ll note that fertility rates on the Left in America collapsed before they did on the right side of the political spectrum. Into the 1980’s, conservatives were getting married and having families. This was often mocked by the Left as being backward. As right-wing feminism began to take hold, the same drop in fertility has happened in the more conservative parts of society. The fact is, even assuming Mindy Robinson looks anything like her pictures, no man would want to put up with that.

Thus disproving evolution once again. How can a TENS-created species voluntarily choose to not breed? That’s not an ability it would have acquired at any point in the process, not if breeding is the literal definition of a successful organism.

The promotion of right-wing feminism has not just perverted the females. It has warped the minds of males now too. That cartoon version of a woman you see pushed by the so-called conservatives is not a compliment to a normal male. That’s the sort of girl you drink with at the pub. If you’re in a dry spell, well, maybe you take her for a spin, but you will not be taking her home to mom. The adventuress has crowded out the market for the sorts of female roles that make society possible.

This is the religious war in which we burn. One faction maintains loyalty to the Father… men directly and women by proxy… while the other faction wants to follow the Rebel. That’s not just a portrait of Christianity, that IS Christianity.

An authentic alternative to the prevailing orthodoxy will have to redefine the female role in society as something useful and appealing. The response to Mindy Robinson posing with a gun should be demand she pose with a sandwich or ironing a shirt. A bimbo on a Harley must first be treated as grotesque, before there can be room for an authentic alternative to right-wing feminism.

Preach, brother!

Of course, women have to be the lead in such efforts, as wherever women go, men must follow.

Aww, there goes a third fuse right at the end. Women aren’t leaders. Never have been. But the picture of Original Sin is not yet complete. Just as Z blew a third fuse, so there is a third piece to Original Sin: the devil.

This is a war for men to fight, good against evil. Evil men want to steal all that we have, destroy all that we have built and kill us off. Women just want to follow evil men for the easy pickings and Bay Boy vibes.

What’s it take to sell Christ? Z is seeing for himself that the feminists and their handlers are persisting in behaviors that will, beyond all doubt, completely ruin civilization. Why would they do that except to steal, kill and destroy?

Which Christ described as the works of the devil. Evil is Real. They don’t want solutions. They don’t want civilization. They want everything and everybody to burn.

Make whatever evo-psych excuses you wish. Argue every argument you can imagine. At the end of it all, you will see that humanity is locked in a power struggle between the Father and the Liar.

Lord Jesus, loyal Son of the Father, happy birthday a little early! May all humanity worship You by imitation.


Jody Armour Connects BLM to Soros

A Soros toady named Jody Armour made the mistake of spiking the football where I was watching. Jody is a professor of law at the University of Spoiled Children (aka Southern California), a Soros Justice Senior Fellow of The Open Society Institute’s Center on Crime, Communities and Culture, and an apologist for Black Lives Matter. His mere existence is circumstantial proof that Burn Loot Maim is a terrorist front operated by Palpatine but I got better evidence coming.

He’s awfully cracker to be rocking a ‘fro. *checks* mixed-race parentage. We’ll be discussing his father at length soon.

How being ‘tough on crime’ became a political liability

Kamala Harris recently dropped out of the presidential race after months of attacks from the left for her “tough-on-crime” record as San Francisco’s district attorney and as California’s attorney general.

Her liberal supporters were understandably upset that Kamala was smoking dope at the exact time she was handing out harsh sentences for smoking dope. Hypocrisy brought her down, not her harsh sentencing… although how any liberal can get upset about hypocrisy is beyond me.

Oh, right. They’re hypocrites.

A few years ago, the idea that being tough on crime would be a liability – not an asset – was unthinkable for both Democrats and Republicans.

Bill Clinton, during the 1992 presidential race, interrupted his campaign so he could return to Arkansas to witness the execution of a mentally disabled man. During Harris’ 2014 reelection campaign for attorney general, she actively sought – and won – the endorsements of more than 50 law enforcement groups en route to a landslide victory.

The ‘mentally disabled’ should be preferentially put to death. Why force them to live like that? In addition to their inability to improve their behavior.

But something has changed in recent years. Harris’ failure to gain traction as a presidential candidate has coincided with a growing number of “progressive prosecutors.”

In the past, I would have scoffed at the notion of a progressive prosecutor. It would have seemed like a ridiculous oxymoron.

In the past, Armour were determined to become a progressive prosecutor… and a little devil settled on his shoulder to make it happen.

But in one of the most stunning shifts in American politics in recent memory, a wave of elected prosecutors have bucked a decadeslong tough-on-crime approach adopted by both major parties. These prosecutors are refusing to send low-level, non-violent offenders to prison, diverting defendants into treatment programs, working to eradicate the death penalty and reversing wrongful convictions.

A little devil named Soros, who has that exact agenda, who invited Jody to join a League of Extraordinary toads Gentlemen yeah, toads.

In 1968, when I was 8 years old, my father was sentenced to 22 to 55 years in the Ohio State Penitentiary for the possession and sale of marijuana. During the trial, the district attorney had repeatedly assured the jurors that he hadn’t promised the state’s principal witness – then serving a long sentence – leniency in return for testifying against my father.

In truth, they had struck that very bargain. After studying the warden’s own law books, my father appealed the conviction, representing himself. He was ultimately vindicated by the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals after proving that the district attorney had deliberately lied to the jury.

Had. Deliberately. Lied. To. The. Jury. About. Promising. Leniency.

Segue THAT, oh hell yeah.

Fred Armour v. W. D. Salisbury, Superintendent, 492 F.2d 1032 (6th Cir. 1974)

Filed 20 February 1974

1 In May of 1968 the appellee [Jody Armour’s father, Fred] was convicted in an Ohio state court on counts II and IV of a four-count indictment charging various narcotics violations. He was given an indeterminate sentence under count II, charging illegal possession of marijuana, of 2-15 years, and a sentence under count IV, charging an illegal sale of the same drug, of 20-40 years. The sentences were to run consecutively. After exhausting state remedies, appellee petitioned the United States District Court for a writ of habeas corpus. The present appeal is from the grant of that writ.

That confirms the 22-55 year sentencing. Nearly all of it was for drug dealing, not drug possession. It was a troubled prosecution, seeing as Fred skated on at least two counts.

Jody, you grew up in a drug house. Thanks for telling us and how could you be surprised that police eventually raided it?

2 In May of 1967 Richard Lee Sees was contacted by an undercover agent of the Federal Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs who asked him to purchase marijuana for him. On July 15 Sees and the agent drove to the vicinity of the apartment building in which appellee lived. Later, Sees testified at appellee’s trial that he had gone inside the building and purchased from appellee seven or eight ounces of marijuana– five ounces of which he sold to the agent. Although appellee was indicted for this alleged sale, the jury found him not guilty.

In 1973, the BNDD was merged into the newly formed Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA).

Now that’s interesting. Per wikipedia, in December 1970 the BNDD’s director was so convinced that his department was corrupt that he sought help from… the Central Intelligence Agency?!? Which might have already been running covert operations within the BNDD?

Deep State fingerprints EVERYWHERE. I might have to look into that while on vacation.

3 Sees also testified that on July 26, 1967 he again purchased marijuana from appellee and again sold it to the agent. Sees, himself, was arrested and charged on this transaction. His testimony led to the conviction of appellee for the sale of marijuana on that date.

So he wasn’t yet an informant.

4 One Glenn Allen Vance was arrested on September 2, 1967 on charges of publishing a forged instrument and possession of marijuana. He was repeatedly interrogated by police officers between September 2 and September 5. At the conclusion of the questioning, he was given a twenty dollar bill, the serial number of which was recorded, and was told to go to appellee’s residence and purchase marijuana. Vance followed a part of his instructions: he went to appellee’s apartment and brought marijuana, but he did not return to the police station.

A forger was caught and the (I presume local) police used him to catch his dealer.

5 As a result of the information which the police now had, a raid was planned on appellee’s apartment building. Shortly before midnight on September 5, Detective Newman and the prosecutor prepared the following affidavit for a search warrant:

6 Ray Newman, being first duly sworn according to law, deposes and says that he believes and has good cause to believe that unknown quantities of cannabis sativa (marijuana) or other narcotic drugs are being concealed in or about the building and individual apartments numbered 1, the office, 2, 3 and 4 and other vacant apartments under the custody and control of Fred Armour and located at 279 Park Street, Akron, Ohio, also known as the Armour Apartments.

Fred was the landlord of his drug house.

7 The affidavit further says that he believes and has good cause to believe that the said cannabis sativa is in the possession and control of Fred Armour, the manager and custodian of the building located at 279 Park Street, Akron, Ohio, and the above named articles should be seized along with Fred Armour who will be charged with violation of 3719.20(A) Revised Code of Ohio.

8 This knowledge is based on the following facts:

9 Information from a reliable informant whose name the affiant has and will reveal to this court if requested and whose information in the past has proved reliable, that:

10 1. He, the said informant, purchased a quantity of cannabis sativa from the above named Fred Armour at 279 Park Street, Akron, Ohio, on or about 3:00 a.m., September 2, 1967.

11 2. Fred Armour is the manager and custodian of the apartment building located at 279 Park Street, Akron, Ohio, and known as the Armour Apartments.

12 3. The informant has personally observed Fred Armour in apartment number 1, the office of the said Armour Apartments; apartment number 2, the residence of Fred Armour and his wife, Addie Armour; apartment number 3, wherein the informant negotiated the purchase of the cannabis sativa from Fred Armour; apartment number 4, the room through which Fred Armour passed to gain access to the other vacant apartments, over which Fred Armour has custody and control, wherein the cannabis sativa is stored.

13 4. The informant has purchased quantities of cannabis sativa at 279 Park Street, Akron, Ohio, on several occasions, and on each occasion Fred Armour has left the informant isolated in one apartment and entered another apartment for the purpose of obtaining the cannabis sativa.

14 The reliable informant referred to in the affidavit was Glenn Vance.

15 Based on this affidavit a warrant was obtained and executed in the early morning hours of September 6, 1967. Seized in the search were a bag of marijuana and the twenty dollar bill that had been given to Vance by the prosecutor, evidence used to convict appellee on the possession charge. The police found Vance at the residence in a stupor, apparently caused by his use of some the marijuana he had bought.

Not just a spokesman, Fred was also a customer! Jody didn’t mention that his dad was stoned when the cops came.

16 On September 8, 1967, Vance signed a written confession that he had purchased marijuana from appellee on or about September 1. However, at appellee’s trial, Vance said that the September 1 purchase was not from appellee but from another person. Furthermore, he stated that he had never bought marijuana from appellee. Consequently, the charge against appellee for the sale to Vance was dismissed for lack of evidence, but appellee was convicted for possession of the marijuana seized in the raid.

Changing his story like that was a crime in itself, so one suspects that Vance was afraid of Fred Armour. He wouldn’t have been the first drug house operator to carry a few grudges.

17 Appellee’s conviction was affirmed by an Ohio appellate court, and the Ohio Supreme Court denied review.

Appellate court section omitted for brevity, concerning the validity of the search warrant that was based on Vance’s written confession. TL;DR The warrant was valid because the police acted in good faith with the information they had at the time.

23 Appellee was also convicted for a sale of marijuana on July 26, 1967 to Richard Sees. At trial Sees gave crucial testimony against appellee. Commenting on this testimony, the prosecutor, in his closing argument, made the following statements:

There were parallel local and Federal investigations into Fred Armour. Feds let the locals handle it until a couple charges were tossed because the informant changed his story, then they stepped in to ensure he wouldn’t be back in circulation soon. Law enforcement realpolitik; if he’s already going away for 20-50 years then the expense of further prosecution is hard to justify. But when said convictions are unexpectedly dropped…

25 Sees had been convicted and was sentenced in the fall of 1967 to a term of ten to twenty years in the Mansfield, Ohio, Reformatory. The prosecutor visited him in the reformatory and solicited his testimony against appellee. During the meeting the prosecutor told Sees that while testifying he might be asked whether any promises were made to him in return for his testimony. He further stated that while no promises could be made specifically in consideration for Sees’ testimony, he would help Sees receive probation whether or not he testified. Shortly before the trial Sees was transferred to the county jail and never returned to Mansfield. Five months after trial he was released from jail pursuant to Ohio’s shock probation statute. Ohio Revised Code 2947.061. As a consequence he served less than one year out of a sentence of ten to twenty years.

So in fact, no promises were made; the fact of his helping a prosecution would be considered by the parole board, is all. And only one of Fred’s two convictions hinged upon this.

26 The district court found that, contrary to the statements of the prosecutor, Sees did have something to gain from his testimony. He was awaiting a decision on his petition for probation, and he had a sentence of up to twenty years hanging over his head. Although the prosecutor told Sees that he would help him either way, the prior statements of the prosecutor about the questions that would be asked at trial and also the motivation for the visit– to discuss the possible testimony– could, according to the district court, reasonably have caused Sees to conclude that the vigor of the prosecutor’s efforts for probation would be determined by whether Sees testified. Upon this basis the district court held that the prosecutor’s statement to the jury was deliberately misleading and that appellee in consequence was denied due process of law.

Of course he had something to gain! But not guaranteed payment. This is the kind of procedural thwarting of justice that gives progressive lawyers their well-deserved reputation as lying dipshit traitors against God and Country. To wit:

27 In Giglio v. United States, [citations of judicial precedents omitted for brevity.]

29. It is true that there is a factual distinction between the situation in Giglio and that now before us. Sees was not asked at trial whether promises had been made to him to testify.

THANK YOU! Remember Jody’s above statement? “[Daddy] was ultimately vindicated by the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals after proving that the district attorney had deliberately lied to the jury.” You’re the lying dipshit, Jody, not the prosecutor… treason still to come!

But the basic tenent of Giglio does not depend on whether misleading information was given to the jury in the form of a closing argument by a prosecutor rather than through the testimony of a witness.

30 We need not decide whether the prosecutor on the particular facts presented here had an affirmative duty to disclose what he had told Sees about helping him.

TL;DR We’re tossing his conviction because the jury wasn’t specifically told the currently-incarcerated witness had a personal reason for cooperating with the prosecution. If the defense lawyer couldn’t be bothered to mention that blatantly obvious fact then the prosecutor should have questioned the reliability of his own witness for the jury’s consideration.


Whew! But worth it.

That was in 1974. I went on to become a lawyer and law professor. During the years I spent teaching and studying the relationship between race and the law, the prison population exploded, and my distrust toward government prosecutors only deepened. Too often, it seemed like they were bringing excessively punitive charges in order to force defendants into plea deals. Too often, their approach seemed to reflect a longing for retribution and revenge rather than rehabilitation.

Face it, Jody, your father was a drug addict and drug dealer who had earned his prison cell. Please tell me you eventually outgrew your 8-year-old crying spell over the strange men who took your daddy away.

In 2017, law professor John Pfaff was able to show that mass incarceration was due, first and foremost, to the nearly unchecked power of district attorneys.

As Fred’s case DIDN’T prove.

With reported crimes and arrests steadily declining in the 1990s and 2000s, you might have expected incarceration rates to also fall. Instead, they soared. Pfaff traces this perplexing trend to one key statistic: Between 1994 and 2008, the probability that a district attorney would file a felony charge against someone who’s been arrested roughly doubled, from about 1 in 3 to nearly 2 in 3.

Yeah, that happens when you traitors succeed in “diverting” petty crime. Most of the convictions start to be felonies.

This is “broken window” policing in reverse. If you punish criminals early for the little stuff then they generally don’t graduate to the nasty stuff. Here, Jody & Cronies are preventing prosecutions for the little stuff and then wondering why the big stuff is now a worse problem.

Welcome to the world you wanted, Komrade. Was it worth selling your soul for?

More than stiff drug laws, punitive judges, overzealous cops or private prisons, prosecutors had been the main drivers of a prison population that had quadrupled since the mid-1980s.

Meanwhile, black Americans continued to be disproportionately incarcerated. In 2017, there were 1,549 black prisoners for every 100,000 black adults – nearly six times the incarceration rate for whites and nearly double the rate for Hispanics.

Either the system is still prejudiced against blacks after it was openly prejudiced in favor of blacks, or you blacks simply don’t belong in a First World country. Don’t blame me for noticing; blame yourselves for not behaving.

This prosecutorial approach wasn’t punished at the ballot box; instead, racking up convictions and plea deals seemed to bolster the political careers of district attorneys.

That’s their job.

No longer.

Since 2013, roughly 30 reform-minded prosecutors have been elected. A few now preside over prosecutorial staffs in some of the nation’s biggest cities, like Philadelphia’s Larry Krasner and Boston’s Rachael Rollins. But they also include chief prosecutors of smaller municipalities, like Satana Deberry, who was elected district attorney of Durham County, North Carolina, in 2018, and Parisa Dehghani-Tafti, the commonwealth’s attorney of Arlington County, Virginia, who won on a platform of ending mass incarceration in 2019.

Segue #1:

In a traditional race for district attorney in Philadelphia, Michael Untermeyer and Joe Khan would be at the head of the pack while the other five candidates in the May 16 Democratic primary election would be trying to catch them.

Untermeyer, a former city and state prosecutor, would have been big news. Finance reports filed Friday show he loaned his campaign $400,000 in late April, bringing his overall investment since December to $950,000. And Khan, a former city and federal prosecutor who has led in fund-raising from individual donors, reported $435,955 in his campaign account as of last Monday.

That all was overwhelmed by a $1.45 million check, written by billionaire George Soros on April 28 and reported Friday, to fund an independent political action committee backing Larry Krasner.

Boston: Newly-Elected DA, Funded by Soros, Vows to Stop Prosecuting Those Who Resist Arrest and 15 Other Crimes

Rachel Rollins, who received campaign funding from Soros-funded PACs, will take office as the district attorney for Suffolk County [Massachusetts] in January. She is planning to decline prosecution of crimes that include resisting arrest, drug possession with intent to distribute, threats, wanton or malicious destruction of property, breaking and entering vacant properties, receiving stolen property, larceny under $250, shoplifting and more. Retailers are worried their businesses will be looted and police are concerned about more violence as there will be a rise in resisting arrest. She also plans to eliminate cash bail and to stop racial disparity in who does and doesn’t go to jail.

Segue #3:

Four years ago, Craig Stephen Hicks, a mentally unstable man prone to terrorizing his neighbors in a Chapel Hill condo, regardless of race and creed, shot three of his neighbors.

The three neighbors whom he shot over a parking dispute were Muslim.

Hicks, a mentally unstable leftist, was a militant atheist, but no hater of Muslims. In a post about the Ground Zero Mosque, he wrote, “I’d prefer them to most Christians as I was never coerced in any way by the Muslims to follow their religion, which I cannot say about many Christians.”

Hicks had confessed to the murder. And the killings had been caught on video. Nor did he try to put up much of a defense. There was no chance that he might escape justice and no need for the feds. But Islamist pressure groups had been lobbying aggressively to treat the murders as a hate crime or, even, as an act of terrorism, despite the absence of a single piece of supporting evidence for such a charge.

The only two pieces of evidence that Hicks had been acting out of hatred for Muslims when he shot his neighbors over a parking dispute was that he was a militant atheist and that they were Muslim. …

[Chapel Hill Police Chief Chris Blue tried] to appease Islamist groups without deviating too much from the facts, by imputing Islamophobia.

But the trial became a circus when Satana Deberry, a leftist pro-crime candidate allegedly backed by George Soros, defeated her credible predecessor to become the DA of Durham County.

District Attorney Roger Echols had wanted the death penalty. Satana ruled out the death penalty. The new radical DA had a very political agenda in mind. Not to punish Hicks, but to prove he’s a bigot.

“It is about cold-hearted malice and murder,” Satana Deberry insisted. “It is not about parking.”

Segue #4:

Liberal billionaire George Soros picked up two wins in Virginia this week when two prosecutor candidates he backed ousted incumbents in local Democratic primaries — after he poured nearly a million dollars into their campaigns.

Soros, known for backing left-wing causes across the globe, used his Justice and Public Safety PAC to boost two liberal candidates against incumbent Democrats.

He backed Parisa Dehghani-Tafti to beat Arlington County Commonwealth’s Attorney Theo Stamos, and supported former Justice Department employee Steve Descano in his race against Fairfax County Commonwealth’s Attorney Raymond Morrogh. Campaign finance reports show Dehghani-Tafti received $583,000 and Descano received $392,000 just from that PAC. Meanwhile, Stamos and Morrogh raised $162,000 and $242,000, respectively, for their entire campaigns.

Jody Armour is celebrating George Soros’ acts of treason against the United States Constitution… committed with his assistance.

Progressive prosecutors, according to U.S. Attorney General William Barr, are “undercutting the police, letting criminals off the hook, and refusing to enforce the law.” In a December rally, President Trump singled out Krasner, calling him “the worst district attorney,” one who “lets killers out almost immediately.”

The experience of Aramis Ayala, the state attorney for the 9th Judicial Circuit Court of Florida, is a classic example of the obstacles these new prosecutors can face. After being elected in 2016, she announced that she would no longer seek the death penalty for any defendants tried by her office. Florida Gov. Rick Scott responded by reassigning 24 aggravated murder cases to another state attorney who was amenable to the death penalty.

Ayala sued to have the cases returned to her jurisdiction. She lost.

Did you hear about the prosecutor who decided to put the death penalty on all crimes? The governor quietly reassigned some of his cases to other prosecutors instead of kicking his ass to the curb for insubordination and refusal to obey the law.

That there’s a postcard of why Republicans are worse than totalitarian Marxist guerrillas.

What changed?

George Soros bought his favorite flavor of justice, like ice cream.

Progressive prosecutors would have never attained power in the first place if their views didn’t resonate with voters.

Yeah, about that:

Michelle Alexander’s 2010 book, “The New Jim Crow,” deserves some credit for changing the way activists thought about crime and punishment. Alexander cast mass incarceration as a civil rights crisis by showing that people didn’t simply end up in jail because they were bad people who made poor choices. Nor did prison populations explode simply because there were more crimes being committed. Instead, mass incarceration was closely intertwined with race, poverty and government policy.

Segue #5

Using the pretext of commemorating Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, the New York Times Sunday Review published what Alan Dershowitz fittingly described as “one of the most biased, one-sided, historically inaccurate, ignorant and bigoted articles ever published by that venerable newspaper.” The article, “Time to Break the Silence on Palestine,” is an unhinged anti-Israel, anti-Semitic, pro-Palestinian rant.

Ooh, this one is saucy!

The essay’s author, Michelle Alexander, served as “a Soros Justice Fellow” in 2005. She was among the first recipients of the Soros Justice Program, with a stipend of $35,000 to $97,000, “to complete a book called The New Jim Crow … about the so-called war on drugs and mass incarceration as the defining racial justice issues of our time.”

Since then, Alexander has been affiliated with numerous Soros-funded organizations, such as The Ella Baker Center for Hunan Rights, which promote “color justice” and “nationally organize[s] and coordinate[s] demonstrations for illegal-alien amnesty and manage[s] voter-registration campaigns for Democratic candidates.”

She was hired by the NYT in the fall of 2018, shortly after Soros invested more than $3 million in the paper.

End segue.

Among civil rights activists, issues like affirmative action in higher education had been consuming a lot of time, energy and resources. Alexander’s book helped redirect attention to racialized mass incarceration as a main battlefront in U.S. race relations.

Since its formation in 2013, the Black Lives Matter movement has made criminal justice reform a centerpiece of their activism. In Los Angeles, for example, the local chapter has led weekly demonstrations for over two years in front of the Hall of Justice. They’re protesting Los Angeles County District Attorney Jackie Lacey for failing to adequately address police misconduct.

Blacks Love Misery is a political quasi-terrorist front for Soros. The author of their ideology is a literal Soros Fellow and his funded prosecutors work to keep them out of jail.

Lacey, who is up for reelection, faces two opponents. Both of them – former San Francisco District Attorney George Gascón and former public defender Rachel Rossi – are running on progressive platforms.

In March, we’ll see if the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s office – the nation’s largest county-wide prosecutorial agency – will be the latest to join the progressive prosecutor movement.

Segue #6:

Prosecutors-union chief warns of Soros influence on election

San Francisco DA George Gascon, backed by Soros and “considered one of the most progressive law enforcement officials in the nation,” said he’s going to leave San Francisco and move to Los Angeles to run for DA.

The incumbent is Jackie Lacey, the first African-American and woman elected to that office. She said she welcomed debate and discussion.

But the Globe said Hanisee “wrote that those backed by Soros aren’t interested in having an open debate about the criminal justice system; they yearn to circumvent the entire process and elect candidates that will refuse to enforce laws already in place.”

Hanisee described it as an “odd approach” for Soros, whose Open Society Foundations purportedly want vibrant and inclusive democracies with governments are accountable to their citizens.

The report said Soros long has meddled in governments around the world, triggering a number of bans on him and his operations. One Macedonia official described his efforts as the “hijacking of civil society.”

End segue.

Jody Armour claims America is moving beyond “tough on crime” but in fact, is selling out his own people to the George Soros plantation.

Principal Thomas Hoffman Bans Merit-Based Pizza

Ever notice that American life is beginning to resemble the movie “Red Dawn”, except backwards? With the Russians flying in to save us from our Commie leadership?

Middle school teacher is ‘left in tears’ after principal CONFISCATED pizzas she’d bought as a reward for her hard-working students because it ‘wasn’t fair to other classes’

20 December 2019

Oi! Look at that title! Never mind that this is literal, Soviet-style Communism. It’s Communism that HURT A WOMAN’S FEELINGS! That’s why this was originally reported as news?

Parents have hit out at an Iowa middle school principal after he abruptly cancelled a pizza party organized for a class of hard-working students.

Principal Thomas Hoffman reportedly left one of his teachers ‘in tears’ after he called off the celebration at Brody Middle School in Des Moines on Thursday, which the educator paid for herself and had been promising her students for three months.

KCCI reports that one irate parent, Neil Erickson, took to Facebook to vent his frustrations, penning a post which has now been shared thousands of times.

One man had the balls to call out this blatant act of evil. Maybe he’s the only father left in Iowa.

Erickson wrote: ‘My son attends Brody Middle School here in Des Moines. His class earned a pizza party that I believe the teacher paid for. He has been excited for this for days…telling me about it and how they earned it.

‘Well today was the day. The pizzas were delivered to the class…the teacher paid and signed the receipt. Principal walks into the classroom and says ‘I never approve pizza parties’ or something to that affect.’

For a male principal, that’s completely inexcusable behavior. Women at least have the excuse of being natural socialists until they’re raised/trained better.

Erickson. He looks like your typical, corn-fed Midwesterner. Shouldn’t that be a NASCAR hat? Maybe NASCAR isn’t big in Iowa.

He continued: ‘He took the pizzas from the kids and let them sit in the office for the teacher to pick up after school. Now my son and his classmates lost the party they worked hard to earn and the pizza I’m sure is wasted now…and the teacher was left in tears. I just cant believe it!’

Dozens of people responded to the post, criticizing Principal Hoffman, with one even comparing him to the Grinch for calling the party so close to Christmas.

No, the Grinch is green. Hoffman’s color is pink; that’s him on the right:

He has a similar face to Erickson, although even from a distance he has baggy lower eyelids. What’s up with her? That’s some disturbing hair for a presumable expert in hair style.

However, there were others who appeared to defend the head of the school for calling off the celebration.

Really? REALLY?!

‘Maybe the teacher should have gotten permission before she did it, that would have made sense to me,’ one wrote.

Bullshit. A good administrator doesn’t rule with an iron fist. If a teacher wants to buy pizza for her class at her expense, particularly as a reward for whatever good work they’d been doing, then management should not interfere. She’s doing the job you’re paying her to do. Let it happen. It’s called delegation and it makes your life easier.

On Thursday evening, Hoffman released a statement obtained by KCCI apologizing for the party’s cancellation, claiming that he believed he was acting in the best interest of all students.

On THAT note, this note:

‘I know that many of you are upset about reports of a classroom pizza party, and the pizzas being taken away. I fully understand.

‘As principal, one of my top priorities is fairness and equal opportunity for our students at Brody Middle School. That applies to everything from the chances they have to learn in the classroom to rewards and recognitions by our teachers and staff. We have discussed this from time to time as a school, and have agreed that fairness is a criteria we want to follow in how we treat all Brody students.

‘However, I do want to apologize for being overly strict in applying that standard today when it came to one of our classrooms. Most of all, I want to apologize for disappointing any of our students, and punishing them.

‘I understand that many people have been talking about having pizzas delivered to Brody tomorrow. If that’s the case, we’ll gladly welcome any donations, and arrange for a nice sendoff for our 700 students on the last day before Winter break.’

You heard it from the horse’s mouth, folks. Hoffman confiscated the pizza IN THE NAME OF FAIRNESS AND EQUAL OPPORTUNITY. See, those students earned that pizza, which is why they didn’t deserve it.

But hey, if people want to give pizza to ALL of the students, including the ones who did nothing to deserve it, then he’s perfectly fine with that. Repentance would have HIM purchase the pizzas instead but it’s Christmastime, yo! Forgiveness and freebies!

While his physiognomy was hardly diabolical, it’s a safe bet this guy is a male feminist. This article turned up while I was searching for his mug.

Valentine’s Day at Brody Takes on a New Purpose

Samson was said to have lost all of his prodigious strength when he got a haircut but that’s not the way it always works. Events this morning at Brody Middle School used haircuts to demonstrate the old axiom about strength in numbers.

An anti-Christian opener. Lovely. Unlike the girls who stupidly cut their hair just in time for the Valentine’s Day dance.

The Brody community seems recently to have gotten more than its share of bad news in the form of cancer diagnoses. The reaction? Well, somebody walking into the middle of this morning’s event in the packed gym might have thought they were crashing an assembly in celebration of a championship.

I was curious if cancer rates in Iowa had been spiking at this article suggests. It’s true! Sort of.


The Iowa Cancer Registry’s 2019 report shows new cases of most types of cancer are holding steady. Investigator Mary Charlton says the exception is cancers caused by the human papillomavirus or HPV.

Love causes cancer!

End segue.

Teachers, office staff, food servers, students – one after another they told their personal stories of struggles against the dread disease in its all too many forms. But to a person their remarks were triumphant and upbeat.

Collectively the speakers got their message across: it’s not just some of us that have cancer; truly, we all have it. Some of us have been slugged and some of us only tapped (so far), but it’s touched all of us somehow, through someone.

No, we don’t all have cancer. In a matriarchy, strength comes via solidarity and victimhood. That is what’s happening here.

The theme was “Through This Together,” and there’s even a spirited tune by that name that was composed by Brody’s own Branden Oliver, a band instructor at the school. When it cued up any hands that were wiping away tears started clapping midway through in a spontaneous unison that spread through the united crowd like a cheerful, healthy contagion.

Then the shearing began.


There was more hair cut than you’d see at a military induction depot. The idea was for men to get their heads shaved to show solidarity with patients who lose their hair while undergoing cancer treatments. And women whose ponytails were shorn donated them to Locks of Love, a public non-profit organization that provides hairpieces to financially disadvantaged children in the United States and Canada under age 21 suffering from long-term medical hair loss from any diagnosis.

That’s disgusting. Why wait to have cancer when you can look diseased now? We must not ignore the feelings of chronically sick people!

Seriously, think about this scene. You shave your head to look like a chemo patient, then “Locks of Love” turns your lost hair into wigs to help chemo patients look normal. That’s whack. That’s like

Meme shamelessly stolen from

Women, don’t cut your damn hair. Don’t do it for charity. Don’t do it for style. And God help your wayward souls, don’t cut your hair specifically to look like a literally sick person. Maybe instead of “joining ranks” with the cancerous, you could shut your legs and not get the HPV that causes many cancers in the first place.

Principal Tom Hoffman gave it up for the cause, among many others. So did DMPS School Board member Bill Howard whose wife, Cathy, is the chief custodian at Brody. And so did Oliver, though his tresses were hard to categorize. Too bushy to be ponytailed, but he wasn’t gonna go with the bald look. The student- stylists from La’ James College who donated their time and talents just whacked off a good bit of his extra and bagged it for LOL.

The annual Valentine’s Day dance at Brody tomorrow night will just continue today’s theme and mood and raise funds for donation to the John Stoddard Cancer Center and Blank Children’s Hospital.

Getting shaved bald just in time for a holiday social event, that’s even more whack. Why not do the shearing after the big party, if you’re going to do it at all? Are we not teaching the girls to look pretty for the boys?

So the assembly was designed to be part motivational; part fundraiser, but there may have been some future career decisions made in the stands this morning. It’s not hard to imagine that it might also pay indirect dividends down the road in terms of more oncologists, assuming discovery of cures doesn’t render that specialty obsolete. In that long-awaited event, the would-have-been docs can always become barbers instead.

“Why do you want to become a doctor?”

“Because my school principal convinced me to shave my hair off the day before a big Valentine dance.”

The first step in teaching degeneracy is to normalize it, which this hair-cutting assembly accomplished. The second step is to punish normalcy… for example, revoking rewards for achievement.

What If I’m Not the ‘Submissive’ Type?

By Rebecca McLaighlin, 10 December 2019

Holy manjaw, Batman! She’s got you beat!

I was an undergraduate at Cambridge when I first wrestled with Paul’s instruction, in Ephesians, for wives to “submit to your own husbands, as to the Lord” (5:22, ESV). I came from an academically driven, equality-oriented, all-female high school. I was now studying in a majority-male college. And I was repulsed.

She doesn’t identify the object of her repulsion. Best guess, she didn’t care about female submission to men when there weren’t any men around. The concept of having to give a care about what HE thinks is a postcard of male privilege, now isn’t it?

I had three problems with this passage. The first was that wives should submit. I knew women were just as competent as men.

Hahaha! Learn to code, Barbie!

My second problem was with the idea that wives should submit to their husbands as to the Lord. It is one thing to submit to Jesus Christ, the self-sacrificing King of the universe. It is quite another to offer that kind of submission to a fallible, sinful man.

Her first mistake was presuming equality with men. Her second was presuming Jesus is like Adam, willing to give up all to enable Eve’s rebellion. Her third was fish-bicycle.

Three strikes and she’s out. Check that, she’s a spinster. Check THAT; she’s just getting started!

My third problem was the idea that the husband was the “head” of the wife. This seemed to imply a hierarchy at odds with men and women’s equal status as image bearers of God. Jesus, in countercultural gospel fashion, had elevated women. Paul, it seemed, had pushed them down.

At first, I tried to explain the shock away. I tried, for instance, to argue that in the Greek, the word translated “submit” appears only in the previous verse, “Submit to one another out of reverence for Christ” (Eph. 5:21), so the rest of the passage must imply mutual submission. But the command for wives to submit occurs three times in the New Testament (see also Col. 3:18; 1 Pet. 3:1).

That’s rather impressive. Most wimminz stop at verse 21. Does she translate reading into doing?

But when I trained my lens on the command to husbands, the Ephesians passage came into focus. “Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her” (Eph. 5:25). How did Christ love the church? By dying on a cross; by giving himself, naked and bleeding, to suffer for her; by putting her needs above his own; by sacrificing everything for her. I asked myself how I would feel if this were the command to wives. Ephesians 5:22 is sometimes critiqued as a mandate for spousal abuse. Tragically, it has been misused that way. But the command to husbands makes that reading impossible. How much more easily could an abuser twist a verse calling his wife to suffer for him, to give herself up for him, to die for him?

She’s “fipping the genders”, a frequently useful rhetoric among us Red-Pilled. But this is not impressive. She started out believing that the duty of men is to suffer for her personal benefit, so of course she doesn’t want to BE a man. She just wants to be EQUAL TO a man.

In addition to self-sacrifice, Christ also loves the Church by disciplining it and giving commands that must be obeyed. Commands like “obey your husband as if he was Me”.

When I realized the lens for this teaching was the lens of the gospel itself, it started making sense. If the message of Jesus is true, no one comes to the table with rights. The only way to enter is flat on your face. Male or female, if we grasp at our right to self-determination, we must reject Jesus, because he calls us to submit to him completely.

Both spouses have the right to sex. Husbands have the right to wifely obedience. Wives have the right to not be shot dead by Hubby when he’s frustrated with her.

With this lens in place, I saw that God created sex and marriage as a telescope to give us a glimpse of his star-sized desire for intimacy with us. Our roles in this great marriage are not interchangeable: Jesus gives himself for us, Christians (male or female) follow his lead. Ultimately, my marriage is not about me and my husband any more than Romeo and Juliet is about the actors playing the title roles.

Standard Churchian Chick fare. “I’m married to Jesus first and you second, Hubby. Don’t you do anything that ‘Jesus’ wouldn’t like.”

Recognizing that marriage (at its best) points to a much greater reality relieves the pressure on all concerned. First, it depressurizes single people. We live in a world where sexual and romantic fulfillment are paraded as ultimate goods. But within a Christian framework, missing marriage and gaining Christ is like missing out on playing with dolls as a child, but growing up to have a real baby. When we are fully enjoying the ultimate relationship, no one will lament for the loss of the scale model.

Coming from a man, I might have taken that at face value, but coming from a woman it’s toxic empowerment. The key phrase is “it depressurizes single people. We live in a world where sexual and romantic fulfillment are paraded as ultimate goods”.

Women need marriage and are hardwired for kids. The pressure to get married is the pressure to live a chaste, submissive, NORMAL life. “God is calling me to a season of singleness” is a synonym for “I’m getting too much cock and male attention to settle down. I’ll be called to marriage at age 39.9 or thereabouts. That reminds me, I should freeze my eggs.”

Becky, if you miss marriage in order to gain Boyfriend Jesus then you’ll miss on on a real baby and grow up to play with dolls. Or cats, more likely.

What’s the perfect Christmas gift for the woman who has everything? A gift certificate to the SPCA.

It also takes the pressure off married people. Of course, we have the challenge of playing our roles in the drama. But we need not worry about whether we married the right person, or why our marriages are not flinging us to a constant state of Nirvana. In one sense, human marriage is designed to disappoint. It leaves us longing for more, and that longing points us to the ultimate reality of which the best marriage is a scale model.

Oh, her poor husband.

Ephesians 5 used to repulse me. Now it convicts me and calls me toward Jesus: the true husband who satisfies my needs, the one man who truly deserves my submission.

Dayumn, her poor husband! …I can’t find a pic of him.

Desiring to justify God’s commands, Christians sometimes try to ground this picture of marriage in gendered psychology. Some suggest that women are natural followers, while men are natural leaders. But the primary command to men is to love, not to lead, and I have never heard anyone argue that men are naturally better at loving.

But but but I thought men and women were equal? Then how can men be WORSE at loving? Doesn’t this imply a need for “gendered psychology”?

Some claim that men need respect while women need love…


…or that we are given commands corresponding to natural deficiencies: Women are better at love; men are better at respect. But to look at human history and say that men naturally respect women is to stick your head in the sand with a blindfold on!

SOMEBODY isn’t respecting her husband! Men do not need respect because they’re good at giving it. Men need respect because we deserve it from the people who benefit from our work. That means you, wifey.

At best, these claims about male and female psychology are generalizations. At worst, they cause needless offense and give way to exceptions: If these commands are given because wives are naturally more submissive, and I find that I am a more natural leader than my husband, does that mean we can switch roles? Ephesians 5 grounds our roles in marriage not in gendered psychology but Christ-centered theology.

This must be why lesbianism is a thing. Some husbands have boobies! And some bitches… don’t?

I have been married for a decade, and I am not naturally submissive. I am naturally leadership-oriented. I hold a PhD and a seminary degree, and I am the trained debater of the family. Thank God, I married a man who celebrates this!

Yet it is a daily challenge to remember my role in this drama and notice opportunities to submit to my husband as to the Lord, not because I am naturally more or less submissive or because he is more or less naturally loving, but because Jesus went to the cross for me.

Or… because Jesus told you to?

Ephesians 5 sticks like a burr in our 21st-century ears because centuries of “traditional” gender roles have often meant wives contorting around the needs of their husbands, while husbands assert their dominance.

Traditional gender roles don’t work because they’ve been used for thousands of years… and Socialism works but has never been tried.

But Paul does not say that the husband’s needs come first, or that women are less gifted in leadership than men, or that women should not work outside the home. At least one of Paul’s key ministry partners was a woman who did just that (Acts 16:14), as did the idealized wife described in Proverbs 31. Paul does not specify that wives should earn less than their husbands, or that families should privilege the husband’s career over their wife’s.

Don’t step in the hamsterbation. “Nowhere does the Bible say that women can’t be husbands!”

Paul is clear elsewhere that men cannot abdicate their responsibility to ensure that their families are provided for. But this does not mean the husband must be the primary breadwinner.

Becky, one thing you can do to make your twisted, Original-Sin marriage more Godly is to give 100% of your paycheck to your husband and then live off however much of it he gives back. See, if he has the RESPONSIBILITY to provide for you then he must CONTROL THE FAMILY INCOME. Otherwise, this is responsibility without authority.

Paul did not say that the husband cannot pimp his wife out for a paycheck while he stays home drinking to the ball game.

Another thing you can do that your “real husband, Jesus” would like is to stop teaching Christianity because He doesn’t want women teaching Christianity.

In biblical terms, the value of work is measured not in dollars but in service. Indeed, Jesus himself, the archetypal leader, did not earn money, and he was financially dependent on some of his female followers (Luke 8:2–3).

*cough* carpenter *cough* And speaking of the Carpenter, Jesus was the archetypal follower, not leader. God the Father was the leader.

Viewed closely, Ephesians 5 is a withering critique of common conceptions of “traditional” gender roles that have often amounted to privileging men and patronizing women. In the drama of marriage, the wife’s needs come first, and the husband’s drive to prioritize himself is cut down with the brutal ax of the gospel. This is no return to Victorian values. Rather, it is a call to pay attention to the character of Christ.

She means the character of Adam, not Christ. Them feminists sure do love the image of Jesus dying under her stiletto heel on a Cross to make all her bad consequences go away.

Wait, weren’t we talking about Wives, obey your husbands?


Physiognomy: Bankster!

I understand the critics of physiognomy. Correlation is not causation, etc. At the same time, unwillingness to look for red flags can backfire badly, dangerously and hilariously.

Let’s talk about banksters. Here’s Lando Calrissian:

And here’s Arlando Henderson, trusted vault manager for Wells Fargo until he posed with their money on Facebook:

Which one should you hire to work at your bank? Neither? Correct, but one could be forgiven for trusting the smooth con artist.

Somebody should be fired for hiring Arlando.

Arlando Henderson began working at a Wells Fargo location in Charlotte in April of 2019, according to the unsealed criminal indictment. Henderson had the keys to the bank vault and within two months of being hired, allegedly began stealing.

Federal prosecutors say that Henderson is accused of pocketing money from the vault on at least 18 separate occasions. The money he allegedly stole came from deposits made by bank customers.

Arlando Henderson posted about having access to large amounts of money on his social media accounts. In July and August of 2019, he shared several photos of himself holding stacks of cash. One caption read, “I make it look easy but this shyt really a PROCESS.”

Around July 16, 2019, Henderson attracted attention when he used $20,000 in cash to make a down payment on a Mercedes-Benz. He shared photos of the vehicle on social media as well. The indictment adds that Henderson also used falsified bank statements to acquire a loan from Ally Financial to pay for the vehicle.

Large cash purchases must be reported to the Feds. This law was first enacted to thwart drug money laundering and kept on the books because, as we see here, it detects other forms of money laundering, too.

Thus, Arlando’s bragging about the thefts in amateur rap videos on social media was helpful but unnecessary.

Arlando Henderson uses the nickname “AceeyFoez” on social media and appears to be an aspiring rapper. A link on his Instagram account leads to a Youtube music video.

His trademark phrase appears to be “Aint Wit Being Broke.” In the Facebook photo where he posed with the Mercedes Benz, he was wearing a T-shirt with the initials AWBB. His Instagram bio also includes the phrase.

Some sources say he claimed to be a military veteran but if so, probably only technically so. “Your country thanks you for the thirty seconds of service it took you to fail your first drug test.”

Federal court records show that an Arlando Mautrell Henderson filed for bankruptcy in Cumberland County, North Carolina, in June of 2013. Documents suggest that he owed more than $26,000 to various entities. Henderson appears to have agreed to pay $447 per month for 60 months.

Management didn’t trust the visual red flags OR do a background check before giving him vault keys!

[He] was arrested in San Diego on December 4, 2019.

Authorities probably feared he would flee the country. He probably was just making another rap video.

Henderson faces charges including financial institution fraud; 19 counts of theft, embezzlement, and misapplication; and twelve counts of making false entries. He was being held at a federal detention center in San Diego, according to inmate records.

The bank manager faces one charge of being a dumbass.


All Your Sidewalk Are Belong To Us

If your women vote then you’re next. Or even worse, if your women are your judges. Today’s example:

Homeless’ right to sleep on sidewalk remains, Supreme Court won’t hear case

Homeless’ right to sleep on sidewalk remains, Supreme Court won’t hear case

By Marisa Kendall, 16 December 2019

In a move that could impact how Bay Area cities can respond to their homelessness crises, the U.S. Supreme Court is leaving intact a major ruling that found cities cannot punish the homeless for sleeping outdoors if there is no other option available.

Frigging Sodom Francis-Is-A-Sicko.

A Sept. 4, 2018 ruling from the Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit held that penalizing homeless residents for sleeping outdoors on public property — if there is no other shelter available to them — violates the Eight Amendment’s cruel and unusual punishments clause. On Monday morning, the U.S. Supreme Court declined to take up the case, meaning the Ninth Circuit ruling stands.

Frigging Ninth Circle of Hell.

The development is a win for advocates of the homeless in the Bay Area and beyond, who have used the Ninth Circuit ruling to argue that police cannot force residents out of encampments on sidewalks and in city parks and impose camping bans in the areas. At the same time, it could tie city officials’ hands as they struggle to help the region’s homeless while also addressing residents’ concerns that sprawling encampments have gotten out of control.

Frigging entitled homeless bums crapping on my doorstep.

The ruling stemmed from a case in Boise, Idaho, that challenged city ordinances that banned camping on streets, sidewalks, parks and other public places. In that case, six homeless residents who were cited by police sued the city. The district court ruled in favor of the city — a judgment that was partly overturned by the Ninth Circuit.

Frigging… whoa, Boise? IDAHO? This ain’t the Gay Area we’re talking about?

And how the heck did six guys who couldn’t rent a motel room find the cash to appeal their case all the way to the top of the judicial system? That mutha is pay-to-play at every step.

We must know more!

It’s cruel and unusual for Boise to ban sleeping on the streets, appeals court rules

By Rebecca Boone, 4 September 2018

Cities can’t prosecute people for sleeping on the streets if they have nowhere else to go because it amounts to cruel and unusual punishment, which is unconstitutional, a federal appeals court said Tuesday.

Nobody ever talks about how lawbreakers are cruel and unusual to their victims. Boo hoo, I’m a meth head who can’t go camping in the Hamptons! This is an urgent civil rights issue!

Hmm, the way this is worded, it sounds like private enclaves will remain free of urban blighters..?

The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals sided with six homeless people from Boise, who sued the city in 2009 over a local ordinance that banned sleeping in public spaces. The ruling could affect several other cities across the U.S. West that have similar laws.

It comes as many places across the West Coast are struggling with homelessness brought on by rising housing costs and income inequality.

Said costs and inequalities brought to you by the champions of homeless bums.

When the Boise lawsuit was filed, attorneys for the homeless residents said as many as 4,500 people didn’t have a place to sleep in Idaho’s capital city and homeless shelters only had about 700 available beds or mats. The case bounced back and forth in the courts for years, and Boise modified its rules in 2014 to say homeless people couldn’t be prosecuted for sleeping outside when shelters were full.

But that’s what the journalists said the 9th Circus ruled??? What’s the real story?

But that didn’t solve the problem, the attorneys said, because Boise’s shelters limit the number of days that homeless residents can stay. Two of the city’s three shelters also require some form of religious participation for some programs, making those shelters unsuitable for people with different beliefs, the homeless residents said.

There it is. Boise is unfriendly to CHRIST-HATING homeless bums who get taught moral conduct in return for a hot meal!

The three-judge panel for the 9th Circuit found that the shelter rules meant homeless people would still be at risk of prosecution even on days when beds were open. The judges also said the religious programming woven into some shelter programs was a problem.

“A city cannot, via the threat of prosecution, coerce an individual to attend religion-based treatment programs consistently with the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment,” Judge Marsha Berzon wrote.

This picture is taken from her youTube acceptance speech for the 2007 Margaret Brent Award. Per the American Bar Association, “Margaret Brent was the first woman lawyer in America, arriving in the colonies in 1638. The Margaret Brent Women Lawyers of Achievement Award, established by the Commission in 1991, recognizes and celebrates the accomplishments of women lawyers who have excelled in their field and have paved the way to success for other women lawyers.”

This is a direct assault upon Christianity. We do good works in order to honor Christ and teach His morality, not to “perform our social responsibility” or some such dreck. How is it that Christianity cannot be extolled in public but secular humanism can? We get sued all the way to SCOTUS if we tell a fag to take his business elsewhere.

If Boise gov’t doesn’t push back hard on this then they’ll be revealed as naturally, deliberately Godless as every Commiefornia shithole.

The biggest issue was that the city’s rule violated the U.S. Constitution’s Eighth Amendment against cruel and unusual punishment, the court found. The amendment limits what the government can criminalize, it said.

Women consider “cruel and unusual” to be whatever men consider “public decency”. Heck, they think it’s cruel and unusual to check IDs to prevent vote fraud, which tells you everything you need to know about them.

“As a result, just as the state may not criminalize the state of being ‘homeless in public places,’ the state may not ‘criminalize conduct that is an unavoidable consequence of being homeless — namely sitting, lying, or sleeping on the streets,’” Berzon wrote.

They didn’t as of five years ago. But Christ stayed on the books so the lawsuit did, too.

The ruling shows it’s time for Boise officials to start proposing “real solutions,” said Maria Foscarinis, executive director of the National Law Center on Homelessness & Poverty, whose attorneys were among those representing the homeless residents.

A Greek immigrant to NYC, graduated Columbia Law, a boilerplate feminist who thinks poverty exists because government hasn’t redistributed enough wealth yet.

“Criminally punishing homeless people for sleeping on the street when they have nowhere else to go is inhumane, and we applaud the court for holding that it is also unconstitutional,” Foscarinis said in a statement.

They could, maybe, sleep somewhere besides the streets of downtown? Perhaps on Foscarinis’ front lawn?

Boise spokesman Mike Journee said city attorneys were considering their next steps, which could include asking the full 9th Circuit to reconsider the ruling or appealing to the U.S. Supreme Court.

Better idea, send them to Columbia Law School en masse. They can be as homeless there as anywhere else. Alinskyites aren’t the only people who can Crash the System. I’m sure the law students there will appreciate early exposure to the Brave New World they’re being taught to build.

I almost said “send ’em to San Francisco” but that really would be cruel.

But city officials also believe the ruling validates the approach Boise officers have taken since 2014 — not ticketing homeless people when shelters are full, he said.

“If there are, as a result of the ruling, adjustments that need to be made, we’ll consider those when the time comes,” Journee said.

Other cities have faced similar lawsuits, with varying results.

In 2007, the 9th Circuit ruled in favor of homeless residents of Los Angeles, finding that as long as there are more homeless residents than there are shelter beds, a law outlawing sleeping outside was unconstitutional. Both sides later reached an agreement and the entire case was eventually thrown out.

In 2009, a federal judge said a Portland, Oregon, policy designed to prevent people from sitting or lying on public sidewalks was unconstitutional. Portland officials now must also give campers at least 24 hours’ notice before cleaning up or moving unsanctioned camps.

A state judge rejected a similar anti-camping law in Everett, Washington.

The usual suspects. The problem here is obvious, of course. No matter how much free, permanent shelter the government builds, demand will always exceed supply. It’s impossible to accommodate the Gimmiedats to the point of having no unsatisfied Gimmiedats left on the planet.

Sara Rankin, a professor at the Seattle University School of Law and director of its Homeless Rights Advocacy Project, said the ruling will serve as a wake-up call to local governments, forcing them to invest in adequate supportive housing for the chronically homeless.

“I think it’s finally common sense,” Rankin said of the ruling. “There are certain life-sustaining activities that people can’t survive without doing. It’s a really important recognition that people have to be able to legally exist and survive somewhere.”

What a battleaxe. Angled eyebrows for conflict, raised cheeks for dominance and manjaw. Middle third of the face is the largest, signaling ambition/status orientation. Also, notice her lips. The lower is considerably thicker than the upper. Men usually have a thicker lower lip, women a thicker upper. Top it off with slight hooding of the eyes and I bet her personality is toxic even by feminist standards.

The earrings are a hopelessly inadequate effort to appear feminine.

I found an article profiling the six “plaintiffs” while looking for who actually prosecuted the lawsuit. Appears to be Boise-local trial lawyers rather than a national outfit such as the ACLU, although funding remains unknown. This is a shameless piece of journalistic drama but not devoid of interest:

[Pamela] Hawkes had moved with a boyfriend to Boise, Idaho, from Spokane, Wash., looking for a fresh start after becoming homeless in 2005. Instead of finding a city where they could get their lives back on track, Ms. Hawkes said, she faced repeated jailings that caused her emotional and mental health to deteriorate.

Where’s the boyfriend? Did he kick her out and why? Most people don’t change cities (although Spokane to Boise isn’t far) without having something or someone waiting for them on the other end.

Officers would go on to cite her on 11 more occasions in 2006 and 2007, including times when Ms. Hawkes said there was no available shelter space, forcing her onto the streets.

Including, but not always? Were there times she refused to go to the shelter?

“Even though we did our best to stay hidden and out of view, we were still being found,” Ms. Hawkes said from Spokane, where she recently secured housing and learned this week that she would have a part-time job at a laundromat.

Most people working part-time at menial labor in middle age are either drug addicts or crazies. Spokane is not a poverty-stricken region.

Robert Martin could not stay in any of the shelters in Boise in 2009, his lawyers said, so he slept in the bushes near Interstate 84, near a shelter where his wife and son were sleeping. He was cited for camping. Mr. Martin is now living out of a vehicle in northern Idaho and working dishwashing jobs, according to Howard Belodoff, a lawyer who has worked on behalf of the plaintiffs.

Not with his wife & son? What’s that story? Did the shelter discriminate against men? I already know one church-sponsored shelter in Los Angeles that rejects men. It’s probably not unique.

Lawrence Lee Smith had become chronically homeless after a career in construction, at times living in a camper van or in shelters. Mr. Belodoff said that on one occasion, Mr. Smith lost the vehicle he had been sleeping in, along with his belongings. Mr. Belodoff said the last time the two spoke, Mr. Smith had qualified for Social Security benefits and found a place to live outside Boise.

Sounds like a typical bum. Why did that construction career end?

Robert Anderson had been staying at the Boise Rescue Mission, but his lawyers said in court filings that he was forced to leave because of a rule at the shelter limiting how long he could remain without enrolling in religious programming. Mr. Belodoff said Mr. Anderson is still in Boise and still mostly homeless, but is currently staying with someone.

Fuck him. He’d rather be homeless than learn about Christ? Done deal, parasite!

Basil E. Humphrey’s difficulties staying sober resulted in him being kicked out of a program at the Boise Rescue Mission, according to his lawyers. With no place to go, he began sleeping outside. Mr. Belodoff said the lawyers lost contact with Mr. Humphrey in recent years.

Presumably not a happy kind of drunk.

Janet F. Bell received repeated citations or threats from Boise police that prompted her to go outside the city limits and sleep in the bed of a pickup truck, according to filings by her lawyers. She has disability and mental health issues that have made it impossible for her to work, Mr. Belodoff said, but she now receives Social Security support and has qualified for city-supported housing in Boise.

So out of these six, two are already on the dole, three are unstable (drugs/psycho) and not safe to allow on the streets, one “just quit” his career, one chose homelessness over Christ and one guy reads like a VAWA victim. The latter has my sympathy. The others can go to Hell Mexico. Much warmer there than Boise and all the murders and vacated homes make housing cheap!

Had there been any working homeless, I would have had sympathy for them also. Will probably be there myself in a few years. Heck, Sacramento is making the RV life look like the easy way out.

Make insane asylums, not homeless shelters. And learn to tell feminists “No”. It is completely unacceptable for a judge to overrule a city’s ordinances in support of a political agenda.


Red Flags Cut Both Ways

A bipatrisan consensus among America’s legislators has been reached that Red Flag legislation has gone too far. Your cranky correspondent is here to provide helpful examples!

Several guns seized from Redmond man after ‘concerning Twitter posts’ for ‘Joker’ movie

By Staff, 8 October 2019

REDMOND, Wash. — A 23-year-old Redmond man who police say made “concerning Twitter posts posing with weapons and referencing the Joker movie” has had several guns — including two assault weapons — removed from his home as part of an “Extreme Protection Order,” Redmond police said.

Investigators became aware of the posts last week, including one dated Sept. 26 showing [Charles Donnelly] holding two AK-47 guns — one in each hand, pointing skyward, fingers on triggers. The caption on the photo read: “One ticket for joker please,” according to Redmond police.

A popular meme for the Joker movie’s opening weekend.

It took police five days to notice this “extreme risk”. I know movie lines can be long but the fact that nothing had happened by then was prima facie evidence for cops to finish their crossword puzzle instead of caring.

It’s fun to bait Leftoids, Chuck, but there is a danger that the joke will break their already-fragile grasp upon reality. Next time, use Photoshop for deniability… by pasting Bill Clinton’s face over yours… and sending an anonymous tip to Hillary.

The post comes as U.S. officials had issued warnings about the potential for mass shootings at the movie, which opened on Thursday to increased security around the Seattle-area movie theaters. FBI intelligence officials had uncovered social media posts related to extremists classified as ‘incels’ — short for “involuntary celibate” — and the man had been claiming to be one of them.

“We need red flag laws to protect women from abusive husbands!”

*Cops disarm a law-abiding citizen because he owns guns without a girlfriend.*

Investigators learned that the man had previous disturbing and threatening social media posts toward women in 2017, according to Redmond police’s petition for being granted an Extreme Protection Order.

Preposterous! Lots of us white men make social media posts that are disturbing and threatening only to… lawbreaking psychos who want us disarmed… oh. Uh-oh. My New Year’s Resolution is now to hide a couple family valuables in a completely legal manner.

More recent posts last month show the man with several guns in his home, tucked into his waistband or displayed in wooded areas, police said. In addition, he showed photos of high capacity magazines filled with rifle rounds and indicated he uses gun kits to make “ghost guns” — guns without serial numbers, according to police.

Take a memo, kids. The world does NOT need to know everything about your hobbies, especially if a lot of people are actively trying to ban them.

The man has not been charged with a crime but is expected to have a court hearing on Oct. 15. The man does not have a prior criminal history nor have police had contact with him before, according to Andrea Wolf-Buck with Redmond Police.

As usual for professional journalists, no closure was given for the story. The accuser’s name is also missing; we don’t need no stinkin’ due process! Fortunately for the Manosphere,

Judge rules posting Joker memes and satirical jokes are not enough to invoke Red Flag laws and confiscate guns

Judge rules posting Joker memes and satirical jokes are not enough to invoke Red Flag laws and confiscate guns

by Naga Pramod, 27 November 2019

23-year-old Charles Donnelly from Washington fell prey to the controversial Red Flag laws pertaining to firearms after he posted satirical jokes online. However, his gun rights were restored after his order to the state to return his firearms was ruled in his favor by the King County Judge Averil Rothrock.

The court stated that posting a few jokes were not enough to have the 23-year-old disarmed.

Whew! A rare display of judicial sanity.

[Prosecutor] Kim Wyatt who led the petition against Donnelly referred to his previous posts dating back to 2017 that read, “shoot any woman any time for any reason” and “kill all woman”.

“I’m not misogynist I just hate women,” was another of Donnelly’s jokes.

Based on these posts, Wyatt argued that Donnelly’s posts “implied threat of a mass shooting” and that the court must “balance the community safety needs versus the temporary deprivation of Mr Donnelly’s rights to possess firearms.”

It is worth noting that the hashtag “#killallmen” was, in the same year, a Twitter meme when deputy editor of Huff Post Personal, Emily Coombs, satirically added “Band together to kill all men” as part of her new year resolutions.

Now then, who is this Prosecutor Wyatt?

Panel educates public on Washington state ERPO law

Panel educates public on Washington state ERPO law

By Blake Peterson, 3 September 2019

Wyatt on the left. Best pic I can get.

The panel featured Kimberly Wyatt, a deputy prosecuting attorney who helped write the state’s current ERPO law, Melissa Chin, a legal advisor with the Bellevue Police Department [pictured above at right], and three police officers from the Bellevue, Issaquah and Redmond departments.

The seminar came about, in part, to both explain ERPO law in Washington state and clarify any questions the public might have about it. Because the law took effect in the state in Dec. 2016, many people living in Washington, as noted by the panel, still might not know much about it and what it can do.

Wyatt acknowledged that the initiative was passed without education about ERPO law being immediately accessible to the public.

Now who’s making “ghost guns”, Barbie?

“‘How do you get the word out in a systematic way?’” Wyatt said she and her colleagues have asked themselves.

A better question, you feckless bitch, is how do you get the word out BEFORE the law is enacted so the people you “protect” can be part of the process instead of unwitting recipients?

The goal of an ERPO, according to Wyatt, is to prevent or reduce harm.

“This tool is really designed for before the crime has occurred,” she said. Chin added that an ERPO aims to “keep guns out of the hands of someone in crisis.”

And give feminists like Wyatt the ability to persecute unsexy men when they, in her personal opinion, step out of line.

There are consequences for those who violate the ERPO process.

If someone files an ERPO petition knowing that the information they have provided is inaccurate, or if they have done so with the intent of harming the respondent, they will be found guilty of a gross misdemeanor.

That is something Washington residents should look into. I doubt Chuck will be Prosecutor Wyatt’s last target.

Last year, there were 71 ERPOs filed in Washington state, with 211 firearms recovered.

How many of those disarmed men were later charged with violent crimes?

Wyatt added that there have only been a handful of ERPO cases in Washington state in conjunction with a criminal case.

Yeah, I thought so. Red Flag is gun confiscation, pure and simple.

And now, let’s see how the other half lives!

Democrats Want Red Flag Laws for Everyone Except Gang Members

Democrats Want Red Flag Laws for Everyone Except Gang Members

By Jack Hadfield, 15 September 2019

House Democrats on Wednesday refused to include gang members in a list of who should have their guns removed via red flag laws.

Democrats were advancing a measure in the House Judiciary Committee that would encourage states to pass extreme protection orders, also known as red flag laws, when an amendment was proposed that anyone who was put on a police gang database should automatically be targeted under the orders.

Representative Ken Buck, a Republican member of the House for Colorado, sponsored the amendment, and told the House just why the gangs should be included:

“The majority of violent crime, including gun violence, in the United States is linked to gangs… My amendment is quite simple. It would allow the issuance of a red flag order against anyone whose name appears in a gang database if there was probable cause to include that individual in the database.”

That’s more due process than most ERPO targets get.

Of course, the Democrats were opposed to this amendment to the red flag motion.

Well played, Ken, well played!

Representative Zoe Lofgren of California said that only “some of [the databases] are reliable, a lot of them are not.”



Judiciary Committe Chairman, Jerry Nadler of New York, was concerned that anyone who wrote “13” on a piece of paper would be wrongly accused of being a member of MS-13. “Maybe you are just doodling because it is the 13th of June,” Nadler said.

Representative Eric Swalwell, also of California, wanted “individuals affiliated with white nationalism,” to also be targeted under the red flag laws.

W00T! Troll 10/10 to Rep. Ken Buck! Not only did he reveal their hypocrisy but Swalwell admitted straight-up and on the record that he wanted Red Flag laws to target his political opponents!

The spectacle! A Congressman who gives a damn and does his job well!

Representative Doug Collins, of Georgia, was swift to call out the hypocrisy of the Democrats, for previously supporting the “No Fly, No Buy,” motion, which would stopped anyone on the federal “no fly” list from buying guns.

This is despite the list having misidentified many individuals as potential terrorists, such as the late Senator Ted Kennedy. “It’s amazing to me,” Collins said:

“We had a large blow-up on the floor of this House just a couple years ago about the “No Fly, No Buy” list, which was shown to have issues, but at that point, nobody from the other side brought this is as a concern, and now we are bringing it as a concern… If we can’t bring this list up, even with due process put in, then don’t ever bring the “No Fly, No Buy” list up again… Don’t ever bring it up again because there is no due process on that list.”


This is not the first time that Democrats have opposed policies that may genuinely crack down on gun violence, without infringing the rights of ordinary citizens.

Project Exile was one of those. Under this program, any convicted felons who were caught in possession of a firearm were instantly sentenced to 5 years in jail. The second offense was an automatic 10 year sentence.

It was first tried in Richmond, Virginia, in the late 90s, and gun crime dropped by 40% after 1 year.

Of course, the Congressional Black Caucus opposed it, claiming that it was a racist program that targeted minorities.

Of course, the hypocrisy of the Congressional Black Caucus calling somebody else racist was lost on them.

National, eh? I like their style.

Teach the Children… Espionage? WebCamGate

I recommend the movie “Minority Report” because its plot is relevant and prescient to modern life, even to the extent of the system being driven by witches in an age of technology. In the movie, pre-crime was limited to murder; in real life, pre-crime is used by bureaucrats to thwart the consequence of soul-crushing bureaucracy. And as a plausibly deniable source of child pornography.

Schools Spy on Kids to Prevent Shootings, But There’s No Evidence It Works

By Todd Feathers, 4 December 2019

TL;DR different people have different definitions of “it works”.

It was another sleepy board of education meeting in Woodbridge, N.J. The board gave out student commendations and presented budget requests. Parents complained about mold in classrooms. Then, a pair of high schoolers stepped up to the podium with a concern that took the district officials completely off guard.

“We have students so concerned about their privacy that they’re resorting to covering their [laptop] cameras and microphones with tape,” a junior said at the October 18, 2018 meeting.

Kids grow up so fast! I still don’t have a smartphone for exactly this reason. It’s not a question of whether the Cloud People will spy on me, it’s a question of how much profit they’ll make in the process.

Woodbridge had recently joined hundreds of other school districts across the country in subscribing to GoGuardian, one of a growing number of school-focused surveillance companies. Promising to promote school safety and stop mass shootings, these companies sell tools that give administrators, teachers, and in some cases parents, the ability to snoop on every action students take on school-issued devices.

No need to involve the parents! It’s not Soccer Mom doing the spying, it’s the Socialist administrators who have had they way unopposed in public education for over half a century. And now they practically incarcerate kids in fear of uprisings!

It continually astonishes me how little the Elites trust their own people. School bureaucrats have turned their “institutions of learning” into literal prison-indoctrination camps, from locker searches and metal detectors to uniforms and panopticon surveillance, to replacing deans with security guards and then with sworn law enforcers, and the only official reason they give is “we don’t want the children to lash out and hurt anybody”.

The Woodbridge students were not pleased.

“We just want to ask again: How are you going to assure our right to privacy when we have been having these problems and we have so many fears because of GoGuardian, and the fact that they can monitor everything that we see and we do?” the student asked the school board.

Good question, son. A damn good question. An even better question is what’s the real reason they’re spying on you.

Answer, they are deceitful bureaucrats playing God whose only concept of heaven is a taxpayer-funded pension.

After a pause, board president Jonathan Triebwasser responded: “A very fair question. I don’t know enough about GoGuardian to give you a fair answer.” He asked the district’s superintendent to look into it.

Deceitful, check.

The capabilities of software programs like GoGuardian vary, but most can monitor the user’s browsing history, social media activity, and location, and some even log keystrokes. That surveillance doesn’t stop at the school doors, but continues everywhere children carry their school-issued computers and whenever they log into school accounts.

Playing God, check.

The companies that make this software—popular brands include Securly, Gaggle, and Bark—say that their machine learning detection systems keep students safe from themselves and away from harmful online content. Some vendors claim to have prevented school shootings and intervened to save thousands of suicidal children.

Preventing threats to one’s retirement, check. Trifecta!

This is the founder and COO of GoGuardian, Todd Mackey. Why am I not surprised to find a pedoface running a company whose mission statement is spying on children?

The CEO is a dot Indian.

There is, however, no independent research that backs up these claims.

The few published studies looking into the impacts of these tools indicate that they may have the opposite effect, breaking down trust relationships within schools and discouraging adolescents from reaching out for help—particularly those in minority and LGBTQ communities, who are far more likely to seek help online.

Holey ignorance, Batman! How could that have surprised you? They needed to invoke victimhood just to cogitate the idea that NOT TRUSTING THE PEOPLE UNDER THEIR AUTHORITY GIVES THE PEOPLE GOOD REASON TO NOT TRUST AUTHORITY.

“I’m sure there are some instances in which these tools might have worked, but I haven’t seen the data and I can’t verify in any way that what they’re saying is correct, or that there weren’t other ways available to get that information without subjecting the entire school to that surveillance,” said Faiza Patel, director of the Brennan Center for Justice’s liberty and national security program, who researches surveillance software.

School spying software has spread quickly as districts have increasingly put personal laptops and tablets in the hands of students. Meanwhile, school officials are under intense pressure to protect their wards from explicit online content and, even more urgently, detect early signs of potential school shootings.

I always wondered why schools were eager to spend megabucks on computers for everybody back in the Nineties. At the time, I ruled out “Big Brother” as a far-fetched conspiracy theory and decided that the going-extinct middle management class wanted the next generation to avoid their fate.

Such naive optimism.

Bark says that its free monitoring software for schools protects more than 4 million children.

It’s not free. Who is writing that check, Bark?

*checks* Mormons.


Bark, the award-winning product that helps keep children safer online and in real life, today announced its $9 million Series A investment. The round was led by Signal Peak Ventures, with participation from Two Sigma Ventures and existing investors including Symmetrical Ventures, Fuel Capital, Hallett Capital, and Atlanta Seed Company.

Signal Peak Ventures is based in Salt Lake City and was owned until around 2000 by Ray Noorda, Mormon and onetime CEO of Novell. He had a reputation for fighting against Microsoft’s growing monopoly in the Nineties.

The others are venture capitalist firms.

“We’re thrilled to work with Bark on their mission to keep children safer,” said Signal Peak Ventures Managing Director Brandon Tidwell. “As children’s usage of technology continues to increase, there is clearly an incredible need for Bark’s solution, and we believe Bark is uniquely positioned to build a great company in an exciting category.”

Created in collaboration with child psychologists, youth advisors, digital media experts, and law enforcement professionals, Bark delivers a research-backed, kid-friendly solution for safeguarding families in the rapidly changing world of technology. Bark uses advanced machine learning to contextually identify and alert parents to potential threats such as cyberbullying, internet predators, depression, suicidal thoughts, and sexting in their children’s text messages, social media accounts, and email.

“We’re dedicated to partnering with extraordinary founders who are pushing the boundaries of machine learning to build intelligent consumer technology systems; as such, we could not be more excited to work with Brian and the Bark team,” said Dan Abelon, partner at Two Sigma Ventures.

Sucks to be you, Dan. Bark is just a keyword-search algorithm that can work across platform boundaries. Here’s a tip, machines don’t learn. They process data.

Bark has experienced rapid growth since being founded in 2015, helping to protect over 2 million children across the nation. Bark will use this round of funding to broaden its product offering and establish a presence in new markets.

Protecting children from themselves. The job once done by loving fathers is now done by Javascript. That’s why kids are killing themselves, right there.

“We are very excited to welcome Signal Peak and Two Sigma as new investors, and look forward to working closely with them both to accelerate our growth and positive impact on children’s lives,” said CEO and founder Brian Bason.

Following the tragic high school shooting in Parkland in February 2018, Bark announced it was offering its platform for free to any school using Google’s G Suite for Education. In August, Bark rolled out the same functionality for schools using Microsoft Office 365 Education. This powerful offering proactively alerts school administrators to issues detected in school-issued student email, chat, documents, and cloud storage.

I truly despise last post’s Makan Delrahim for enabling tech monopolies to the point where kids can’t avoid the Panopticon by purchasing from a less-popular manufacturer. Helicopter parents are bad, helicopter bureaucrats are worse.

When I was in high school, we called Microsoft Outlook the Virus Transfer Protocol because all the e-mail viruses of the day were written (by other teens, not me) to exploit that specific program. No need to bother with other e-mail programs because market share.

Ah, those were the days. The days when it-wasn’t-me could set fire to the computer lab with a science project and not end up in juvenile hall.

End segue.

[Bark’s] tools have “prevented” 16 school shootings and detected more than 20,000 “severe self-harm” threats, according to the company’s homepage. From January through August 2018 alone, Bark claims, it identified five bomb and shooting threats, nine instances of online predators contacting children, 135,984 instances of cyberbullying, 309,299 instances of students using school accounts to talk about or buy drugs, 11,548 instances of children expressing desires to harm themselves or commit suicide, and 199,236 instances of children sharing explicit content.

So much bullshit. Let us count the cow patties.

1. 16 School shootings discussed online is either too high or too low. Remember they’re all “disturbed white male loners”? Loners don’t talk about their plans. But kids talk about school shootings a lot, Heck, their schools probably have mandatory “all-hands” staff & student meetings to discuss school shootings every time a headline pops. They even simulate shootings with on-campus drills.

Look, gov’t, if your ‘education system’ have become so unsafe that Middleton Middle School now stocks more firepower than Pensacola Naval Air Station then it’s time to shut down public education and start trusting redneck Southerners with rifles.

2. 20k self-harm is WAY too high. Notice they qualified it with self-harm “threats” to bump their numbers. Generally speaking, it’s not a threat if you need Echelon IV to detect it.

3. Five bomb/shooting “threats”, again, threats are by definition visible.

4. Only nine predators contacting children? Somebody prejudiced Bark to ignore clergy and schoolteachers.

5. 136k instances of cyberbullying, way too low.

6. 309k incidents of talking about drugs, WAY too low. Trust me, Homes, I did high school in Los Angeles. 309k per day talking about drugs sounds about right… this before Ritalin went to market.

7. 11,500 instances of suicidal behavior. The total number of reported suicides for USA in 2017 was 47,000, so no way is that statistic “deaths prevented”. Not even close.

8. 199,236 instances of children sharing explicit content… among 4 million kids over a year? That is at least three orders of magnitude too low! Looks like that keyword search has trouble detecting naughty pictures.

So yeah, Bark is just a keyword searcher. I cannot help but wonder, Minority Report style, how many of those were false positives by one kid to get another kid in trouble.

Hell, I probably triggered somebody’s suicide detector just by querying suicide rates a moment ago.

Numbers like that are understandably convincing to district administrators and parents, especially when companies offer their products to schools for free. Bark spokeswoman Janelle Dickerson said Bark makes its money from the $9-per-month version of its tool that it sells to families. The paid version currently covers 200,000 children, a small fraction of the 4 million children watched by the free version in schools.” Securly offers a paid premium product with more features than its free tool. Both companies categorically denied profiting from the data they collect on millions of students through their free offerings.

That’s just insulting. Which is it, “our product is free” or “we don’t pimp your data”?

Upon closer inspection, the numbers Bark touts for its school software appear much more like marketing copy than legitimate data.

Now it’s Vice’s turn to call out the bullshit! *popcorn*

For one thing, the company’s numbers don’t always appear to be consistent. Earlier this year, Bark told TV stations in North Carolina and South Carolina that from May 2018 to May 2019, it had identified 14,671 instances of students expressing desires to harm themselves or commit suicide in those states alone.

When compared to the national statistics on its website, that would mean that the two states—which include just 50 of the more than 1,200 K-12 districts Bark claims as customers—produced a huge proportion of the incidents Bark flags across all 50 states.

The numbers suggest that during a 12-month period the company identified significantly more instances of kids contemplating self harm in the Carolinas (14,671) than it did nationwide during an overlapping nine-month period (11,548). Similarly, the 50 districts in the Carolinas apparently produced 88,827 instances of cyberbullying during that year, equivalent to 65 percent of the 135,984 cyberbullying cases detected in all 1,200 Bark districts across the country during that same period. The rest of the data shared with the Carolina TV stations is similarly disproportionate.

Statistics like these have prompted academics and school policy officials to question the integrity and consistency of digital surveillance companies’ data.

“What is particularly challenging about this issue is the tremendous urgency school districts are being faced with to do something and do something now [about suicide and school shootings] … combined with a tremendous lack of evidence that these tools do what they say they do,” said Elizabeth Laird, the senior fellow for student privacy at the Center for Democracy & Technology. …

She added that Bark has never participated in an independent study of its services because “We do not retain data nor would we share user data with a third party.” However, the company does retain data for the purpose of publishing aggregate marketing statistics.

“Which is it”, indeed!

“Wow, you guys are much less trusting than the venture capitalists were. What’s wrong with you?”

Slightly humorous miscategorizations … may be warnings of more significant issues with algorithms designed to detect violent or worrying behavior.

Natural language processing algorithms have been shown to be worse at recognizing and categorizing African American dialects of English. And popular tools used to screen online comments for hate speech and cyberbullying tend to disproportionately flag posts from African Americans.

Dem po’ Niggers, even tha algorithms is keepin’ da Black Man down! *beep* hate speech *beep* cyberbullying *beep* cultural appropriation *beep* white privilege *beep* terrorist threat *beep* redneck *beep* MAGA *beep* This is an automated message from the Facebook Ministry of Trust and Safety. Your account has been frozen. An account has been created for you just so we could freeze it. You asshole.

“One of the things to kind of understand about surveillance software is that it’s going to have a huge number of false positives,” Patel said. “The question becomes: Well, what do you do when kids are flagged and how does the school react to that? We know that school discipline disproportionately targets African American and Latino youth, regardless of the offense.”

Just like the criminal justice system and race pimp Jesse Jackson.

Several school surveillance software companies claim that their algorithms go beyond simple keyword identification—such as flagging when a student writes “bomb” or “gun”—and analyze the context of the message along with recent web activity. How they do that, though, is considered a proprietary secret.

Cheap overseas labor.

“With sentiment analysis, a student can say ‘I can’t take this anymore, I want to end it all’ … something that’s just looking for keywords may not catch that,” said Jolley, the Securly director of K-12 security.

This is exactly why ordinary people in Communist nations end up paranoid and distrustful.

There is no definitive study proving students perform worse when schools monitor their web activity and personal messages—nor are there any that show monitoring makes them safer, according to experts.

But there are real incidents that justify students’ fears—like the ones that prompted Woodbridge high schoolers to stick tape over their webcams. Woodbridge Superintendent Robert Zega initially agreed to an interview for this article, but did not speak to Motherboard before publication.

Nine years before the Woodbridge students spoke at their local board of education meeting, sophomore Blake Robbins was called into an assistant principal’s office in nearby Lower Merion, Pennsylvania. She accused him of dealing drugs. The evidence: a photo of Robbins sitting in his room with brightly colored pill-like objects that was taken when the district remotely activated his school-issued laptop’s webcam using device monitoring software called LANrev.

Vice Principal Lindy Matsko. That’s quite a face, to be accusing other people of using hard drugs.

The picture was part of a cache of 56,000 photographs that the district took of students without their knowledge. It included sensitive material like Robbins standing shirtless in his room.

The “drugs” in the picture turned out to be candy. Following a federal class action lawsuit, the Lower Merion School District settled for $610,000. Robbins received $175,000 and a second student who joined the case received $10,000. The rest of the settlement covered their lawyers’ fees.


Segue to WebCamGate, circa 2010:

At the beginning of the 2009–10 school year, the school district issued individual Apple MacBook laptop computers to each of its 2,306 high school students. The laptops were for both in-school and at-home use.

It was part of the school district’s One-to-One initiative. The program was piloted in September 2008 at Harriton High School and expanded in September 2009 to Lower Merion High School. It cost $2.6 million, less than a third of which was covered by grants.

The school loaded each student’s computer with LANrev’s remote activation and tracking software. This included the now-discontinued “TheftTrack”…

The school elected to enable TheftTrack to allow school district employees to secretly and remotely activate the standard webcam featured in all Apple laptops since 2006. That allowed school officials to secretly take photographs through the webcam, of whatever was in front of it and in its line of sight, and send the photographs to the school’s server. The system took and sent a new photograph every 15 minutes when the laptop was on, and TheftTrack was activated, though school employees could adjust the timeframe to as low as one-minute intervals. LANrev disabled the webcams for all other uses (e.g., students were unable to use Photo Booth or video chat), so most students mistakenly believed that their webcams did not work at all.

That’s not an invasion of privacy, that’s kiddie porn collection. Not funny. The scam was invented by Carol Cafiero, school district Information Systems Coordinator, and district Network Technician Mike Perbix, although many other officials were involved.

I think this is Carol; wow, this story has been scrubbed off the Internet in a serious way. Lots of dead links and missing videos, even from the NBC affiliates that first covered the story. She looks like a typical angry feminist.

The only surviving picture of Mike Perbix. He did no time for taking lots of pictures of kids who thought nobody was looking. Nobody did time but the innocent taxpayers lost >$600k in the settlement.

End segue.

Egregious invasions of students’ privacy, like in the Lower Merion case, will grab headlines. But school communities should be equally worried about the long-term effects of using surveillance software on children, said Andrew Hope, a sociologist at Federation University, in Australia, who studies youth surveillance.

“Our contemporary surveillance technologies indoctrinate our students, our citizens … into a culture of observation in which they learn to be watched and are accepting of unremitting surveillance as a norm,” he said. “There is a behavioral modification that happens, but we’re not entirely sure what the outcomes of such a modification might be.

Bullshit we don’t know. Do your job, sociologist, or move over and let a historian do your job.

Are we teaching them to be surveilled? To be producers of data in a surveillance economy?”

Yes. Exactly. Socialists didn’t seize power because they wanted a turn calling the shots or to try some new ideas. They seized it to play God, to manage their BPD insecurities by projecting them onto society then punishing society for it, and the worst, most malignant evildoers seized power in order to enjoy the greatest pleasure in Hell: getting away with evil in broad daylight.

And the younger the victims are corrupted, the harder it will be for them to ever find a way out of the lies.

How long until a school shooting turns out to be justified by the misconduct of school admin?


The Devilmouse’s Man On the Inside

You know what the problem is with the movie industry these days? It’s hamstrung by obsolete anti-monopoly legislation.

DoJ Moves to End Antitrust Rules Regulating How Movie Studios Distribute Films to Theaters

The US Justice Department signaled Monday that it plans to end a 71-year-old antitrust enforcement program on movie distribution, saying it is no longer needed to protect consumers.

Epstein didn’t kill himself and another government watchdog took a bribe!

Assistant Attorney General Makan Delrahim announced that the Department of Justice would move this week to terminate the Paramount Consent Decrees, which went into force in 1948.

NOT ANOTHER JEW! I swear I don’t look for them!

Forget physiognomy, let’s do background per Wikipedia. Delrahim is an Iranian Jew who immigrated to Los Angeles, got his citizenship while in law school and went almost straight into senior Federal office, working for the Senate Judiciary Committee under Senator Orrin Hatch.

1991 Graduated University of California, Los Angeles with a Bachelor of Science in kinesiology. He also received a Specialization in Business/Economics.

Not a promising background for where he ended up.

1995 Graduated George Washington University Law School with a Juris Doctor with high honors.

One wonders if he was just screwing around with his undergrad work. Attending GWU means Delrahim is connected with the Jesuits.

While in law school, Delrahim worked at the Office of Technology Transfer at the National Institutes of Health, and on intellectual property issues at the Office of the United States Trade Representative, Executive Office of the President.

This kind of thing makes me want to spit. As a LAW STUDENT, Delrahim was already connected at high levels of government. Looks like all those nepotism and diversity regulations don’t apply to Jews.

After law school, Delrahim joined the Washington, D.C. law firm Patton Boggs.

In 1998, Delrahim became a counsel to the United States Senate Committee on the Judiciary, working under the chairman, Senator Orrin G. Hatch. Delrahim worked on intellectual property and antitrust issues, including patent reform and the investigation into Microsoft.

That was a shitshow that I’m still angry about. Microsoft was, and is, a blatantly obvious and powerful monopoly dominating roughly 85-90% of the operating system market. The antitrust investigation found them guilty… the guilt was undeniable… but Microsoft’s punishment was a TEMPORARY OVERSIGHT COMMITTEE.

That is not how you break up a monopoly. It was so bad, in fact, that nine state governments including California refused to accept it.

I knew there had been a Faustian backroom deal, that somebody high in government had decided to plant its hooks into GatesCorp instead of doing his job of breaking it up as the original judge had decided, but of course the details never emerged.

It is a pleasure to finally meet you, Makan Delrahim.

Delrahim later became the Chief of Staff and Chief Counsel of the Senate Judiciary Committee, until his appointment at the Department of Justice in 2003. Jon Leibowitz, President Obama’s Chairman of the Federal Trade Commission, who was previously a Democratic Senate Judiciary Committee aide and worked with Delrahim, remembered him as being creative and a pragmatist.

Pragmatist? You need an idealist for an anti-monopoly czar… that rare kind of crazy that can refuse a ten-million-dollar bribe with enthusiasm.

Delrahim became U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee Chief of Staff 3-8 years out of law school. Must be nice having (((friends))).

From 2003 through 2005, Delrahim served as Deputy Assistant Attorney General for the United States Department of Justice Antitrust Division in the administration of President George W. Bush. While there, he oversaw the Division’s International, Appellate and Policy sections and was the Chairman of the Merger Working Group of the International Competition Network.

Delrahim also served as a commissioner on the bi-partisan blue ribbon Antitrust Modernization Commission, serving with former Chiefs of the Antitrust Division, Sanford Litvack and John Shenefield, and ABA Antitrust Section Chair, Jon Jacobson.

After leaving the Department of Justice, Delrahim joined the law firm of Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck, in Los Angeles, California, where he focused his work on antitrust, intellectual property and appellate matters. His clients included Google, Apple, Anthem Inc., Qualcomm, and Zuffa.

Like I said, an antitrust czar must be a headstrong idealist. Delrahim worked for GloboCorp BEFORE BEING APPOINTED TO THE ANTITRUST POSITION. How the hell did Trump miss that multi-trillion-dollar conflict of interest?

After Trump’s victory in the 2016 U.S. presidential election, Delrahim was active in Trump’s presidential transition. After the inauguration of Donald Trump, Delrahim became Deputy White House Counsel and assisted in shepherding United States Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch through the United States Senate confirmation process.

Answer, it never hurts to suck up to the boss, I guess. You know what, I don’t even care. Christ will die a second time before a single one of my “leaders” appoints somebody who didn’t attend Harvard. The only happy answer to the question “why did you pick such an obviously corrupt bureaucrat?” is “the microchips in my prefrontal cortex” because in that case, stupidity could be cured by sticking Mister Politician’s head in the breakroom microwave for three seconds.

Maybe it would work anyway at thirty seconds. Hmm.

In March 2017, Trump announced his nomination of Delrahim as Assistant Attorney General for the United States Department of Justice Antitrust Division. This role, which required U.S. Senate confirmation, entails overseeing criminal cartel enforcement as well as corporate mergers and acquisitions.

Why, Trump? Why did you let the mice bell the cat? You’re a better businessman than this!

In September 2017, he was approved 73–21 by the U.S. Senate. When he arrived on the job he was reportedly gifted a hat with “Make Antitrust Great Again” written upon it, by the staff of the Justice Department.

When interviewed, Delrahim emphasized that under U.S. law, a monopoly is legal as long as it does not abuse its monopoly power.

That’s just Delrahim’s history. What is Mister Monopoly Watchdog doing today?

The decrees — which smaller movie chains and drive-in theaters still champion — barred major film studios from owning movie theaters, a system that had existed in the early part of the twentieth century and largely blocked independent venues from being able to show hot films.

The decrees also restricted studios from certain distribution practices, such as requiring cinemas to accept a group of films as a condition of getting a much-sought blockbuster, a practice known as “block booking.”

It’s generally considered monopolistic practice to control both production and distribution like that. This will be the death knell for independent movie theaters. Yes, theaters are already the bitches to Hollyweird’s pimps but even so, they have standards. Movies that are hot, Woke garbage… excuse me, movies that inexplicably underperform… still get discarded in favor of movies that people actually want to see, because you can’t turn a profit off an empty theater.

Smaller theaters will not be able to afford to screen unprofitable movies in order to be allowed to show profitable movies. Disney-owned (or at least -friendly) theaters will soon have 100% of market share, even if the devilmouse doesn’t move on to other monopolistic strategies such as price gouging while they have an Amenable Authority guarding the henhouse.

Said authority explains why we don’t need to defend society from media monopolies in Current Year:

Delrahim said a review concluded that the decrees “no longer service the public interest” because the horizontal conspiracy of studios owning theaters no longer exists.

Since the decrees were enacted, the movie industry has become more competitive, with major metropolitan areas served by multiple theaters and video streaming services dramatically altering the landscape for consumers, Delrahim said in a speech at a Washington legal conference.

“These changes illustrate that markets can evolve, and no one can predict with certainty from where and in what form innovation will appear,” he said.

He’s conflating mergers intended to create monopolies with “innovation”.

“Once innovation has occurred, however, it would be a mistake for antitrust enforcers to limit the potential for consumer-enhancing innovation.”

Nothing would innovate the devilmouse like cutting off his competitors’ media distribution outlets!

The shift is likely to upset small and medium-sized theater chains and drive-ins, which balked at a potential change when the DOJ launched a review of the decrees in 2018.

The National Association of Theatre Owners (NATO) argued in October 2018 public comments that the restriction on block booking remained essential to protect smaller theaters, which may otherwise be forced to accept films that won’t play well in their communities.

As I described above.

“Exhibitors require a variety of content in order to appeal to the varied tastes of their of their consumers. The prohibition on block booking has allowed exhibitors to use their screens to program both major studio content and other, more targeted fare,” NATO said in the 2018 comments.

“If distributors are permitted to block book, they could demand exhibitors book an entire slate on multiple screens, leaving little room for the independent and smaller distributors to finance and distribute films that consumers demand.”

A spokesman for the theater group said the organization stood by the October 2018 comments and would await formal DOJ legal filings before commenting further.

Star Whores may be going down in flames like a woman-driven Death Star, but if the moviegoer can be forced to pay for it anyway then it’ll be a ‘success’. They’re mostly doing this with subscription services already.

Services such as… Disney Plus… which debuted in November at the same time Delrahim made this announcement.

Aha! This isn’t just about brick-and-mortar theaters. Delrahim is dropping the law so Disney can make like Netflix. Goodbye, Netflix! Monopolies are like Highlanders, there can be only one… and now there’s two of you in the room.

Let’s learn more about this traitor to America.

Makan Delrahim, 48, is an Iranian immigrant who moved to the United States when he was about 10 years old. He is a self-described conservative. …

Delrahim was involved in one of the most contentious antitrust fights in the media industry. Public filings show that in 2009 and 2010 he lobbied on behalf of Comcast, which was acquiring NBC Universal.

Reminder, he became the FTC’s anti-monopoly czar in 2017.

Critics were wary of allowing a distribution company (Comcast) to control a content and programming company (NBC). Among their fears was that Comcast (CCV) would thwart competition among online streaming services by refusing to offer NBC content to other online platforms, such as Hulu or Netflix (NFLX).

The Federal Communications Commission and the DOJ ultimately approved the deal — with stipulations.

Delrahim also worked as a lobbyist on behalf of Anthem (ANTX) during its takeover bid for Cigna (CI), Pfizer (PFE) during its acquisition of Allegra, and T-Mobile (TMUS) during its MetroPCS merger.

Excellent, blatantly obvious reasons to not trust this man as a corporate watchdog for his second career.

Delrahim’s October 2016 interview about the AT&T deal — in which he said “I don’t see this as a major antitrust problem” — was with the Canadian network BNN.

During the conversation, he even suggested he did not think the AT&T-Time Warner deal should be more troublesome than the Comcast deal he fought for.

“It doesn’t raise the same challenges as some of those other transactions.,” he said.

Politico and the FT, citing anonymous sources, have reported that Delrahim has changed his view since taking office. Critics have said it raises the prospect of White House influence.

Funny, I was just thinking the influence was running the other way.

“Maybe he has had a legitimate change of heart about the arrangement since inspecting the deal more closely from his perch at the Justice Department. But his new boss has left him with some troubling appearances,” New York Times media columnist Jim Rutenberg wrote in Thursday’s Times.

Delrahim promised at his Senate confirmation hearing in May that “politics will have no role” in deal reviews under his leadership.

“The independence of the decision — in prosecuting and reviewing mergers as well as other conduct — is a serious one that should be free from any political influence,” he said.

Translation, he reassured his fellow, Democrat Jews that he wasn’t a race traitor. In fact, there’s now a formal movement of Jews jumping ship from the Democrat Party to the Republican Party, now that the Dems are full of their ancestral enemies and China isn’t opening its doors. Look up the term “Jexodus” for more… I may do a post on it, also, but I don’t want a reputation as yet another (((obsessed))) blogger. I really do just go where the headlines and curiosity take me.

During a meeting earlier this year, Delrahim promised Democratic Senator Richard Blumenthal that he would alert him “any time the White House initiates an inappropriate communication with you or anybody in the Antitrust Division,” according to The Wall Street Journal.

That is open treachery against his boss… and he still has a job? For all his business and negotiating smarts, Trump can’t pick a political adviser to save his life.

Sources also reportedly told the Journal that Delrahim assured Blumenthal that the White House had not attempted to influence his view of the AT&T-Time Warner deal.

A long time colleague of Delrahim’s who says he is a liberal told CNNMoney that he can’t imagine that Delrahim “would engage in any type of vigilante justice to help the president in the deal…That’s just unfathomable to me.”

The source, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, added that Delrahim likely changed his mind after more closely inspecting the AT&T-Time Warner deal.

Anonymous, yet the smart money is the source is Jewish, liberal, a Harvard Law graduate and showing Trump Derangement Syndrome… nope, that’s still half the State Department.

The source explained that the conservative approach to antitrust enforcement prefers requiring companies to spinoff certain chunks of their businesses, rather than putting in place “behavior requirements” that the government would have to police indefinitely.

That’s actually sensible, although the phrase ‘insider trading’ is bouncing around in my head like an ad jingle.


The Perfect Cop Video

This one has it all. It’s the Principia Summa Red Pillica of the Manosphere. Have you ever fantasized about how, if some ninety-pound female cop decided to arrest you, you’d just plant your feet, hold still and see how long it takes her to call in a man to do a man’s job? It’s not a fantasy anymore. H/T Donut Operator, of course.

The good stuff starts at 7:30 but watch the whole thing for how utterly useless Barbie was as a law enforcement officer. Another diversity hire is going to cost the local government a fortune and the mother was not even a Dindu chimp.

A solo female officer identifies a shoplifting suspect. He passively refuses arrest and rebuffs her effort to arrest him with ease despite his obvious mental retardation and lack of fitness. He even says verbatim, “we can do this mean or we can do this nice. I’m asking you do this nice” and grabs both her wrists at the same time.

Barbie calms down, radios for backup, then suddenly wigs out, draws her firearm, begins screaming, shoots his mother instead of him, then tries to shoot him again when he becomes violent in defense of Mom. You can hear Barbie hyperventilating and it can’t possibly be because she was exhausted. She also makes no effort to aim her pistol, I mean NO EFFORT AT ALL TO AIM, like she’s forgotten that she’s even holding it. A dramatic example of what happens when a woman runs out of testosterone and her glands switch to adrenaline.

The shoplifter wrestles armed Barbie to the ground, pins her, orders her to stop hurting Mom then steps back and sits down while she whimpers in the fright reaction.

That’s when her backup arrives… 250lb Deputy Leonidas, who never used a gun when he could kick their ass instead…

…who in under fifteen seconds, walks in the door, punts the shoplifter’s head into outer space, pins him to the ground until he stops twitching and begins de-escalating Barbie. “Secure your gun… are you okay?… *she picks her pistol up by the barrel so it’s pointing at her*… look down at your holster… good.”

“Look down at your holster”, sheesh. Barbie must have been tunnel-visioned down to a pinprick. Adrenaline, I tell you.

What a contrast. She couldn’t control a nonviolent situation even with lethal force. He drew but didn’t bother to shoot, just face-kicked the perp so hard his boot came off. And all she had to do to contain the situation was wait THIRTY MORE SECONDS.

Women are not men. Women are never going to control unwilling men without either a man helping her or a literal killswitch. And even the latter is not reliable because when women get that adrenaline rush, the result will be fight, flight or fright… not “default to your training”.

I close with a salute to Deputy Leonidas:

Edit, I don’t think this cop is that same Leonidas as that cop, but they both have the right idea about how to fight crime.


Calvinist Wayne Grudem Listens And Believes!

The Council on Biblical Manhood and Womanhood has begun to offer its Satanic, family-killing fruit. As Pastor Grudem recently explained, the trick to learning that Scripture permits frivorce is hearing wives complain about their husbands instead of just reading Scripture. I archived his explanation and will fisk it at the end:

But first, a more approachable explanation of his lies.

Wayne Grudem Changes Mind About Divorce in Cases of Abuse

By Rebecca Randall, 26 November 2019

Wayne Grudem, a leading Calvinist theologian and prominent complementarian, has changed his position to affirm a scriptural basis for divorce in cases of abuse and shared his new stance at a major gathering of evangelical scholars last week.

After hearing examples of real-life couples whose Christian beliefs led them to endure abuse rather than separate, Grudem said he looked closer at Scripture to conclude that abuse may be grounds for divorce, provided pastors and elders seek discernment from God in leading a couple to this outcome.

This revises his long-held view, published as recently as 2018 in his textbook Christian Ethics: An Introduction to Biblical Moral Reasoning. The historical view of most evangelicals provides two reasons for divorce: adultery (Matt. 19:9) or desertion by an unbeliever (1 Cor. 7:15).

That’s how it’s been for two millennia. Note that #2 is not applicable to believers, which is the why the reader may have been taught there’s only the divorce reason.

My wife Margaret and I became aware of some heartbreaking examples of such things as severe sexual humiliation and degradation that had continued for decades, and another case of physical battering that had gone on for decades,” he told CT. “In all these situations the abused spouse had kept silent, believing that a Christian’s duty was to preserve the marriage unless there was adultery or desertion, which had not happened.”

His wife is helping him discover new reasons to Biblically justify divorce? That can’t go wrong.

Grudem, a co-founder of the Council on Biblical Manhood and Womanhood, presented his new work on the topic at the Evangelical Theological Society annual meeting last week, in a talk entitled “Grounds for Divorce: Why I Now Believe There Are More than Two.”

Earlier proponents of accepting abuse as grounds for divorce have pointed to Paul’s use of the verb “separate” in 1 Corinthians 7:15, arguing that the verse applies to a spouse fleeing the home for protection. But Grudem previously was not convinced.

The verse reads: “But if the unbelieving partner separates, let it be so. In such cases the brother or sister is not enslaved. God has called you to peace” (1 Cor. 7:15 ESV, italics added).

TL;DR Grudem claims that the verse should be read as “In cases of abuse, of which an unbeliever leaving is only one example and not a representative one, either, the sister is not enslaved if the divorce is approved by the clergy.”


The Protestant world isn’t just dying, it’s going Catholic. Grudem is laying tracks for the clergy to grant divorces “as directed by God”. That sounds SO VERY familiar.

“Most commentaries assume that ‘in such cases’ refers only to cases of desertion by an unbeliever,” said Grudem. But upon further examination, he realized that the phrase appears nowhere else in the Bible. Grudem looked at 52 uses of the phrase in ancient Greek literature and found that “in such cases” usually does not just refer to the one scenario the writer already mentioned (i.e. an unbelieving partner) but to scenarios similar to that one.

The first rule of hermeneutics (“how to correctly interpret Scripture”) is that the Bible is the best interpreter of the Bible. For example, if we want clarification of whether that phrase in 1 Cor. 7:15 contains additional yet unmentioned reasons for legitimate divorce, we should look at the rest of Scripture for inspiration and guidance before resorting to fictitious characters in Greek tragedies written by fags worshiping Zeus. We might consider “I [God] hate divorce” in Malachi 2:16 or Jesus saying “Moses permitted divorce because your hearts were hard, but it was not so in the beginning” in Matthew 19:8. We could then go to that said beginning and read Genesis 2:24 about a man and woman becoming “one flesh”.

That sounds… permanent. If we would not treat a broken bone by amputating the arm then maybe we shouldn’t tear apart a marriage because the spouses are going through a hard spot, either, because GOD HATES DIVORCE.

You see, Wayne? I can play the “me so smart” game, too. The only differences between us are that I don’t get paid, I don’t speak Squiggle, I want to be understood by my readers and I fear what God will do to me if I mishandle Scripture. You? You take one clause, note that the original Greek phrasing isn’t used elsewhere and proceed to invent a completely new theology of divorce that has magically gone undiscovered for millennia… a theology that just happens to perfectly fit the modern feminist agenda.

Do you think God will be amused by your wordplay? Do you think God will nod approvingly and congratulate you on outwitting Him? On discovering the hidden truth of God’s Will for marriage that He wanted us to know for centuries but was too secret-squirrel to just tell us about? Can you really be that stupid? The evidence says:

“These examples led me to conclude that in 1 Cor. 7:15, the phrase “in such cases” should be understood to include any cases that similarly destroy a marriage,” said Grudem. Therefore, he concluded that abuse is such a case.

The evidence says Yes. Note Grudem’s fatal error in claiming that abuse destroys a marriage.

However, he clarified that restoration is still the first goal when the question of divorce comes up. If the abusing spouse is a Christian, then counseling and church discipline should be pursued, but if abuse doesn’t stop then a church leader should consider that this may be a case where the victim is free to seek a divorce.

Divorce should be safe, legal and rare. Just like abortion!

Just over half of evangelical pastors (55%) believe divorce may be the best option in cases of domestic violence, while only 4 percent say a couple should never divorce, even when violence is present, according to a LifeWay Reseach survey.

Over half of the clergy waiting to sit in judgment of your husband already believe that divorce is the best option. Barbie, you are pre-approved!

The response from the ETS audience was “overwhelmingly positive and appreciative,” Grudem said, and he received few objections. “One woman afterward told me she counsels abused women, and she wept with tears when she read my outline. More than one person said to me afterward, ‘I came prepared to disagree with you, but you persuaded me.’”

Ariel Bovat, a clinical counselor working in domestic violence rehab, tweeted that Grudem was the MVP of ETS for his presentation. “This information will give so many women freedom from their abusers!” she wrote.

The issue of divorce in the case of abuse has been a subject of conversation among evangelicals in the #MeToo and #ChurchToo era.

The 2018 controversy around Southern Baptist leader Paige Patterson began when a recording of him advising a woman to submit to her abusive husband recirculated online. CT reported at the time that Patterson said he had advised and helped women leave abusive husbands, but stood by his commitment to never recommend divorce: “How could I as a minister of the gospel? The Bible makes clear the way in which God views divorce.”

Patterson fought the good fight and the proof of it is his effortless ability to live rent-free in the minds of SBC’s new leadership, like a journalist ranting about GamerGate.

A few years before, Grudem and other complementarian theologians took part in a theological debate around the nature of the Trinity, which had implications for their teachings on gender roles and female submission. Female complementarians in particular have spoken out against an over-emphasis on submission that would lead wives to believe they must submit to abusive husbands.

On THAT note, the article ends.


I proceed to fisk some of Grudem’s linked justification.

Grounds for Divorce: Why I Now Believe There Are More Than Two
An Argument for Including Abuse in the Phrase “In Such Cases” in 1 Corinthians 7:15
Wayne Grudem
For ETS meeting in San Diego, 11-21-19

A. The position of my 2018 book Christian Ethics: only two biblically-sanctioned grounds for divorce (adultery and desertion by unbeliever, based on Matt. 19:9; 1 Cor. 7:15)

1. This has been the most common Protestant position since the Reformation
Westminster Conf. of Faith, Chapter 24, para. 6: nothing but adultery, or such willful desertion as can no way be remedied by the church, or civil magistrate, is cause sufficient of dissolving the bond of marriage:

So far, so good. He proceeds to list many founders of Calvinism in support of this position.

B. But during 2018-2019, I had an increasing conviction of need for re-examination of divorce for self-protection from abuse
1. My awareness of several horrible real-life situations, and thinking, “This cannot be the kind of life that God intends for his children when there is an alternative available.”
a. – arguments, disagreement repeated rape
b. – battered – no help when abused spouse went to pastor
c. — repeated threats of physical harm or even murder

Grudem became aware that Scriptural teaching was insufficient because women were unhaaapy. He needs to read about Original Sin again, and once again every time Eve complains that Adam never lets her eat ANYTHING.

And no, Grima Wormtongue Grudem, there is no such thing as marital rape.

C. Still, I was never quite persuaded by the “abuse is a kind of desertion” argument.
I did not think it right to say that “abuse is another kind of desertion” because I could not see it as something Paul intended to mean when he spoke of the abuser as the subject of the verb χωρίζω (the abuser is the one who leaves) in 1 Corinthians 7:15:
But if the unbelieving partner separates, let it be so [literally, “let him separate”]. In such cases the brother or sister is not enslaved. God has called you to peace.

Does this sound like the Hegelian dialetic to you?

It’s always a red flag when a high-level theologian begins to talk Squiggle to you. He knows the layman doesn’t have a clue what χωρί means… so he’s obviously taking advantage of the fact by diving deep into that dead language.

D. A new and more promising kind of argument: The uninvestigated phrase “in such cases” (ἐν τοῖς τοιούτοις) in 1 Cor. 7:15
But if the unbelieving partner separates, let it be so. In such cases the brother or sister is not enslaved. God has called you to peace. (ESV)
BGT 1 Corinthians 7:15 εἰ δὲ ὁ ἄπιστος χωρίζεται, χωριζέσθω· οὐ δεδούλωται ὁ ἀδελφὸς ἢ ἡ ἀδελφὴ ἐν τοῖς τοιούτοις· ἐν δὲ εἰρήνῃ κέκληκεν ὑμᾶς ὁ θεός.

1. Does it mean:
a. in only this case: desertion by unbeliever, or
b. in any cases that have similarly destroyed a marriage?
c. ἐν τοῖς τοιούτοις does not appear elsewhere in the New Testament or LXX
d. I (and my teaching assistant Brett Gray) could find no commentator who ever searched for this phrase in Greek literature outside the Bible
2. I found that several examples from extra-biblical literature show that Greek ἐν τοῖς τοιούτοις (“in such cases”) often includes more kinds of situations than the original example


Extra-Biblical literature is so vast that one can use it to prove ἐν δὲ εἰρήνῃ actually means ἀδελφὸς. If you don’t believe me then just ask… EURIPIDES???

PHILO JUDAEUS Phil. De vita Mosis 1.38, line 1 (lib. i-ii) {0018.022} (1 B.C.-A.D. 1)

[When the Egyptians discovered that their all their firstborn sons and firstborn cattle had been killed:] And, as so often happens in such circumstances (ἐν τοῖς τοιούτοις ), they thought that their present condition was but the beginning of greater evils, and were filled with fear of the destruction of those who still lived.

Specific example: 10th plague on Egypt and death of the firstborn sons.
“in such cases”: any kind of sudden tragic event. (clearly broader than the specific example named)

EURIPIDES Trag. Troiades [The Trojan Women] {0006.011} Line 303 c. 480-c. 406 BC

What are they doing? Are they firing the chambers, [300] because they must leave this land and be carried away to Argos? Are they setting themselves aflame in their longing for death? Truly the free bear their troubles in cases like this (ἐν τοῖς τοιούτοις ), with a stiff neck.

Specific example: captured people who are about to be carried into exile
“in such cases”: any case where someone faces a sudden loss of freedom or even loss of life

EURIPIDES Trag. Electra {0006.012} Line 426 c. 480-c. 406 BC

But go inside the house at once and make things ready there. Surely a woman, if she wants to, can find many additions to a meal. Really there is still enough in the house to cram them with food for one day at least. It is in such cases, . . . that I see how wealth has great power, to give to strangers, and to expend in curing the body when it falls sick

Specific example: needing food to feed to unexpected guests
“in such cases”: any case in which wealth provides the ability to meet unexpected needs

Yes, Euripides was quite the Bible commentator while writing his tragedies… when not worshiping his patron deity Zeus…. five hundred years before the Bible was written… in a different culture than the Israeli one that Jesus and the Apostles grew up in.

Oh for the love of scholarship, my brain is bleeding!

SOPHOCLES Trag. Electra {0011.005} Line 990 c. 497-406 BC

[990] In a crisis such as this (ἐν τοῖς τοιούτοις ), forethought is an ally both to those who speak and those who listen.

Specific example: two sisters (Electra and Chrysothemus) considering whether to kill Aegisthus in revenge for their father’s death
“in such cases”: any plans that involve life-and-death risks

SOPHOCLES Trag. Electra {0011.005} Line 1338 c. 497-406 BC

Utterly foolish and senseless children! …. Be done now with your long speeches and this insatiable shouting for joy, and go inside. In dealings of this sort (ἐν τοῖς τοιούτοις ), delay is harmful, but the time is ripe for being done.

Specific example: Orestes and Pylades, two friends who are plotting a double murder, are in danger of being killed unless they act quickly
“in such cases”: any time someone is carrying out a murder plan

Sophocles is the only other name (out of six) that my readers are likely to recognize. One wonders if Grudem ever did a thesis on the story of Electra.

10. In contrast to the plural phrase in 1 Corinthians 7:15, New Testament authors elsewhere used singular of τοιοῦτος when the reference was limited to one specific example (“in such a case” or “in this case”):

This is EXACTLY why I never trust squiggle-speakers. Remember reading above, how Grudem claimed the phrase for “in such cases” never occurred in Scripture? That that was why he tapped nonreligious writers living centuries apart from the young Church in the first place? Here, Grudem just admitted that the singular form of the phrase IS used in Scripture. Only the plural form isn’t.

Grudem had obviously gone on a jihad to find something, ANYTHING he could twist into justifying modern feminist beliefs.

b. If Paul had meant to refer only to desertion, another option would be to use ἐν τούτῳ (singular) “in this case”

And that’s “divorce by an unbeliever”, Wayne. Not “desertion by a believing husband”.

F. Additional reasons why abuse should be included in “such cases” in 1 Cor. 7:15 and considered a legitimate ground for divorce

But if the unbelieving partner separates, let it be so. In such cases the brother or sister is not enslaved. God has called you to peace. (1 Cor. 7:15)
εἰ δὲ ὁ ἄπιστος χωρίζεται, χωριζέσθω· οὐ δεδούλωται ὁ ἀδελφὸς ἢ ἡ ἀδελφὴ ἐν τοῖς τοιούτοις· ἐν δὲ εἰρήνῃ κέκληκεν ὑμᾶς ὁ θεός.

1. If abuse by an unbelieving spouse forces the abused spouse to flee the home for self protection, the abuser has caused the separation just as much as if he or she had deserted the marriage
a. The result would be the same as desertion (no longer living together)
b. “in such cases” (ἐν τοῖς τοιούτοις) would seem certainly to apply to this situation (very similar!)
[see this argument in Frame, Jones, PCA 1992 report, Chrysostom]:

I was too slow. Wayne’s already equating “desertion by an unbeliever” with “no longer living together”.

Priest: “Why should I grant you a divorce?”

Wifey: “I kicked him out of the house while he was at work.”

Priest: “Ah, you are no longer living together! Desertion has happened. Here’s your certificate of divorce but you should pay the fee before you sign, if you want to use a credit card in his name.”

G. Conclusion on 1 Cor. 7:15: “in such cases” should be understood to include any cases that similarly destroy a marriage
We could paraphrase,
But if the unbelieving partner separates, let it be so. In this and other similarly destructive cases (ἐν τοῖς τοιούτοις ) the brother or sister is not enslaved. God has called you to peace. (ESV)

Now Grudem is equating “no divorce” to slavery. That’s not how Scripture describes marriage.

1. This reasoning also explains why Paul felt freedom to add desertion as another ground for divorce in addition to adultery, which Jesus had specified. In both cases, the marriage has been very substantially, or even fatally, harmed.

His forktongue is working hard here. AGAIN, that is “desertion by an unbelieving spouse” not just “desertion”. The reason Scripture allows that is because God doesn’t hold unbelievers to the same standards as believers. He respects both the honest believer and the honest unbeliever.

2. Abuse is in some ways more harmful than desertion, because abuse includes repeated demonstrations of actual malice, not simply indifference. Abuse is actively and repeatedly malevolent.

In Malachi 2, God equates divorce with wife battery. Grudem’s little loophole doesn’t stretch this far so he’s completely without justification for believing this.

3. Other specific kinds of behavior that in some cases might be so severe that they would belong in the category of “in such cases” (1 Cor. 7:15), because they have similarly destructive effects in the marriage:

a. Extreme, prolonged, verbal and relational cruelty that is destroying the spouse’s mental and emotional stability

In cases of mental/emotional abuse, the determination of “substantial harm” is more difficult and more subjective, but not impossible

b. Credible threats of physical harm or murder of spouse or children

c. Incorrigible (or recalcitrant, or inveterate, or incurable) drug or alcohol addiction accompanied by regular lies, deceptions, thefts, and/or violence

d. Incorrigible gambling addiction that has led to massive, overwhelming indebtedness

e. Pornography addiction would also fit here, but it would also be included under meaning of “sexual immorality” (Gk. porneia) in Matthew 19:9

Boldfaces mine. So, in his quest to protect women whose bodies have been shattered in hubby’s drunken rages, Grudem has… oh, so accidentally… declared that a husband using porn is legitimate grounds for divorce. Unsaid: that a wife refusing her husband sex, which is the very definition of sexual desertion, is grounds for divorce.

At long last, after two thousand years, we may now properly state 1 Corinthians 7:15:

“But if the unbelieving partner separates, let it be so. Also, if a spouse–believer or not–has a foul tongue or gambling addiction, threatens any form of violence, uses recreational drugs to excess or if he looks at porn, then in such cases the spouse is not enslaved to the marriage. God has called you to empowerment.”

H. Suggested guideline on grounds for divorce:
1. Divorce for self-protection is morally permissible in situations where one spouse is repeatedly inflicting substantial harm on the other spouse, such that the abused spouse must leave the home for self protection, and also in other situations that are similarly destructive to a marriage.
2. This “substantial harm” could be physical or mental/emotional (from verbal and relational cruelty)

Exactly what the Godless feminists want. By their results ye shall know them.
