Is at The Other McCain, where Stacy McCain writes about the Pill, sex, science, nature, and other things. there is a lot to digest, and I am not sure I completely agree with all of his summations, but if you are in the mood to think, go read this piece
True eloquence requires that the orator actually say something, which is why President Obama, Cornel West, Je$$e Jackson, and most Leftists will never be eloquent, One of my favorite bloggers, Stacy McCain, is an eloquent man. He also has that rare ability to make people want to read what he writes. Take this nugget from his blog today:
Who can read THAT and not want to click the link? Come on admit it you sick freaks! You WANT TO Click THAT!
Slate is the MSNBS of online magazines, and, here is the latest outrageous outrage they have discovered. Beware Infant Gender Assignment!
Obstetricians, doctors, and midwives commit this procedure on infants every single day, in every single country. In reality, this treatment is performed almost universally without even asking for the parents’ consent, making this practice all the more insidious. It’s called infant gender assignment: When the doctor holds your child up to the harsh light of the delivery room, looks between its legs, and declares his opinion: It’s a boy or a girl, based on nothing more than a cursory assessment of your offspring’s genitals.
Declares his opinion? And you say this “opinion” is based on something as flimsy as genitals? SHOCKING! I mean, yes, in fact gender IS defined by genitals, just as writing for Slate is defined on absurdity. I am trying to conger up how the “evil” gender assignment goes. The doctor, holds up a child, peers at the genitals, and calmly calls the nurse over.
“Excuse me nurse, but this baby appears to have a penis, do you concur?”
“Why yes doctor, that looks like a penis to me”
“So, this baby then, must be a boy”
“Why yes doctor, yes”
See, this is OUTRAGEOUS! And thankfully, we have an outraged American to expose this shockingly shocking outrageously outrageous outrage! I know I am outraged! and we all should be. I mean think about where this might lead! The Slate piece continues
We tell our children, “You can be anything you want to be.” We say, “A girl can be a doctor, a boy can be a nurse,” but why in the first place must this person be a boy and that person be a girl? Your infant is an infant. Your baby knows nothing of dresses and ties, of makeup and aftershave, of the contemporary social implications of pink and blue. As a newborn, your child’s potential is limitless. The world is full of possibilities that every person deserves to be able to explore freely, receiving equal respect and human dignity while maximizing happiness through individual expression.
Wait, what? How dare this Slate writer call that infant an infant? Who the Hell are they to place that kind of label on that baby? I mean, yes, the fact IS that it is an infant, but facts do not matter. I mean, if a penis or vagina do not have anything to do with gender, then how does a baby actually being a baby mean anything either? But, this is important stuff, it MUST BE because only really important topics are covered in Slate right? Either that or this writer is as crazy as they come
With infant gender assignment, in a single moment your baby’s life is instantly and brutally reduced from such infinite potentials down to one concrete set of expectations and stereotypes, and any behavioral deviation from that will be severely punished—both intentionally through bigotry, and unintentionally through ignorance. That doctor (and the power structure behind him) plays a pivotal role in imposing those limits on helpless infants, without their consent, and without your informed consent as a parent. This issue deserves serious consideration by every parent, because no matter what gender identity your child ultimately adopts, infant gender assignment has effects that will last through their whole life.
See! Your child’s life will be RUINED, R-U-I-N-E-D RUINED if a doctor is allowed to say it is a boy, or it is a girl! Oh there are several layers of KRAZY here folks I mean this MUST be a hoax right? No one could possibly believe the absurdities uttered here right? I mean even Slate must no allow this level of KRAZY right? Wrong!
Why must we force this on kids at birth? What is achieved, besides reinforcing tradition? What could be the harm in letting a child wait to declare for themself who they are, once they’re old enough (which is generally believed to happen around age 2 or 3)?
What insanity is this? When was the last time you, as a parent, grandparent, or uncle as I a witnessed a 2 or 3-year-old “declare themselves”? I doubt anyone has, but what would it sound like? Let us think here.
Think of a family gathering. As the adults are drinking their coffees, here comes young Patrick, age 3. “Excuse me everyone” Patrick says, clinking a fork on a water glass. “I am glad I have you all hear, I have something I need to say. I am, in fact, a girl, or rather a woman, trapped in a little boy’s body. Yes, yes, I do have a penis, but do not label me because of that you genderist bastards! I am woman, hear me roar! So, I have a list of demands here, call them my Gender Justice List if you will.” I have more here, but you will have to wait for the book to be published. it is called “My fight for Gender Justice: How My Inner Vagina and I beat Genderism!”
Of course, that is a bit of absurdity to illustrate how
wrong, foolish, inane, insane, BATSHIT CRAZY this writer really is. Yes, Cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs!
RS McCain continues his National Offend a Feminist Week by laying bare the deep insanity that IS today’s Feminism
“It became obvious that men didn’t want to interact with me or with women in general on an equal level, and that what ‘attracted’ them in women was subordination to them — as soon as we wanted to be their ‘equals’ they were repelled by it, lost interest or tried to thwart the feminist drive in me some way or another.”
I hate to break it to this demented woman, but men WANT, I mean REALLY want women that are their equals. The fact is women who always want to do whatever a guy wants to do is, well boring. So, I doubt this Feminist had man problems because she was too “equal”. A more likely version is that she was a gigantic pain in the ass with her fierce Feminist act.. I mean let’s be honest here, no guy, at least no sane guy, wants to date anyone that talks like this
Just a few days ago I read Skulldrix’s post on a separatist state of mind, which I have found very refreshing and enlightening, and which brought me back to many of my own first experiences of separatism. I remember some conversations going on at FCM’s on separatism, maybe a year and a half ago, where several of us bloggers and commenters discussed whether we should call ourselves separatists or pro-separatists. FCM at the time argued that separatism wasn’t a realistic or feasible goal for most women under patriarchy because the reality is that we can’t completely escape men, so it would be more realistic to envision ourselves as pro-separatist instead of separatists.
I can’t quite remember what I wrote at the time or whether I expressed myself clearly but I thought that the distinction between pro-sep and sep was unnecessary once we conceive of it as a way of being, an ongoing journey and struggle, according to the means we have and what is safe for our survival. Though I agree about the fact that most if not all of us can’t escape men on a daily basis. Most women will have to work alongside men to some degree because that’s the only or least worst job opportunity we can find. Very often we will have to depend on men to learn a skill, or to heal from severe illnesses, because men monopolise and control all disciplines and sectors of their society.
See what I mean? Who the fuck talks like that? A crazy person that’s who! The problem Feminists have with men is NOT men, it is the Feminists constant rage-a-thon, and constant quest to be a victim of the “Patriarchy”. So maybe your man problems are not the “Patriarchy” at all. Maybe the whole “I am a victim” act is really not very fun. You want to know what your problem is? Find the nearest mirror!
Stacy has more on Radical Wind and her RAGE!
Radical feminists are both (a) insane and (b) basically correct in their understanding of the psychology of sex. Which is to say, a careful study of what is today called “gender theory” does show that inequality between men and women — collectively, under the systematic male dominance that feminists call patriarchy — is inextricably linked to heterosexuality. Even if every conceivable reform were enacted that could rid women of discrimination in education or employment, male dominance would continue to be expressed through sexual intercourse, through manipulation or abuse within relationships, through pregnancy and through women’s greater burden in parenthood. Women who desire long-term male romantic companionship of any kind must do what is necessary first to attract, and then to maintain, his sexual interest.
Radical Wind — the wacko feminist whose rant “PIV is always rape, OK?” inspired widespread mockery – is actually very close to an important truth when she describes how men were “repelled” by her “feminist drive.” We may suppose she was hanging out with a loutish crew of young left-wing idiots when she experienced this; therefore it must have been a shocking revelation when these allegedly egalitarian men expected her to enact the “subordination” of femininity.
News flash: Men are men.
Bingo! Men are men, and women are women, and Feminists are CRAZY!
I know, it is not PC these days to suggest that a Gay man, or A Lesbian can be a Pedophile or that a Gay man might use his wealth to seduce, take advantage of, and use young men who are seeking stardom. But, PC or not, it is not at all surprising is it? Face it powerful people of all sexual proclivities have been doing such things for eons. And, in my view, the young person, as long as they above the age of consent, is really no less guilty and no less morally stained than the horny old bastard who uses their position to get their rocks off. Stacy McCain reports on some Hollywood big shots that are accused of being just such dirty old bastards
Gay movie director Bryan Singer wants the world to know that he did nothave butt-rape with that underage boy, Mr. Egan:
“The allegations against me are outrageous, vicious and completely false. I do not want these fictitious claims to divert ANY attention from X-Men: Days of Future Past. This fantastic film is a labor of love and one of the greatest experiences of my career. So, out of respect to all of the extraordinary contributions from the incredibly talented actors and crew involved, I’ve decided not to participate in the upcoming media events for the film. However, I promise when this situation is over, the facts will show this to be the sick twisted shake down it is. I want to thank fans, friends and family for all their amazing and overwhelming support.”
So that settles that, doesn’t it? Except that now Gawker claims to have inside sources on the gay Hollywood boy-toy scene:
X-Men director Bryan Singer is not the only powerful gay man in Hollywood who likes to surround himself with handsome twinks. But according to a handful of sources who spoke with Gawker over the course of the last week, he was known as the most generous and active benefactor of a scene that allowed the young and impressionable to rub up against Hollywood elite — including prominent writers, directors and actors — leaving behind bitter memories and a sheaf of newly filed lawsuits.
That litigation comes from a man named Michael Egan, who says that he was sexually assaulted by four men—Bryan Singer, Garth Ancier, Gary Goddard and David Neumann—when he was 17. All four have strenuously denied the accusations, but Egan’s lawsuits have exposed a culture that was previously visible only to insiders in and around L.A., especially within the gay enclave of West Hollywood.
(Ooh! There’s a “gay enclave”? Tell us more!)
You should go read the rest for more sordid details. My point here is that some people in power use that power to help young talents, to be mentors and some, well they take advantage. Just as some young talents would say “Hell no!” Some will gladly say yes, and will, in fact instigate the “favors” game. And, though it is not PC to point out that yes, Gay men can be as abusive as any straight man can be, it should be pointed out, and really, there should be no greater or lesser moral outrage in either case should there? Yet, too often Gay men, or Lesbians, rather than taking heat for their behavior seek to play the Homophobia Card. Do not be stunned if that card gets played in this story eventually. And do not be stunned if those looking into the allegations are accused of being “haters”
Sometimes I read a headline and think to myself, if a man did that they would bury him under the jail
The legal age of consent in England is 16, and if you tell a jury you didn’t know your partner’s age, you may go scot-free:
A female radio DJ who had sex with a 15-year-old girl after plying her with vodka has walked free from court because she did not know the teenager’s real age.
Emma Stanfield, 40, said she thought the girl was 16 and only found out her true age the morning after the night they spent together at her Oxford apartment.
The prosecution claimed that Ms Stanfield knew the girl was underage and then ‘recklessly’ pursued her, leaving her 29 missed calls and more than 100 Facebook messages in the days that followed.
So, let me be clear. I can see the I thought she was older defense, to a point. Believe it or not there are teens who will lie, I know we all want to think of a 15-year-old as a child, but some are not so innocent and bear some responsibility for their actions. But, once the Lesbian in question found out this girl was, as we say in America, jail bait, why did she pursue her? 100 Facebook messages? 29 calls? Sorry but I do not buy that. She took advantage, getting the girl drunk, which is another big red flag.
So, how did a jury reach a not guilty verdict? Maybe the fact that this was a Lesbian taking advantage of a young girl had something to do with it. Anyone seriously think a man who did the very same thing would get off with no jail time? Face it, we live in a world with many double standards. A 30-year-old male teacher has consensual sex with a 16 year-old female student, and he is a dirty old man and she a completely innocent victim. But reverse the genders and the reaction of many is different isn’t it? In that case the woman is seen by some as introducing a young man to adulthood, and the kid? Well he is going to receive pats on the back, and some “atta boys” isn’t he? See, double standards.
It has always amazed me how society, as a whole uses different standards for the two genders ( yes, there are TWO genders, not three or four, or whatever). A man goes out and gets laid by numerous ladies, he is seen as a stud, and he is likely to be pursued by more women. If a woman has numerous partners, she is called a slut. Is that fair? Well, no, but we do have different moral expectations for the genders. That is just a fact of life. And, it seems, if the story above is any indication, we have different expectations for different sexual orientations as well. The 40-year-old Lesbian who got a 15-year-old drunk and had sex with her is no better than a 40-year-old man who did the same thing. Neither is the 40-year-old any better if the genders are reversed in either scenario. A pervert is a pervert folks, we need to recognize that. We need to heed our moral compasses which tell us, if we listen, that all 40-year-olds should leave all 15 year-olds alone!
The Other McCain has a post up about divorced mothers who embrace “Friends With benefits”
Now, at his new site BarbWire, Matt introduces us to a new weirdness, a divorced mother’s advocacy of “friends with benefits” for divorceés:
Do you believe that “friends with benefits” is purely no-strings sex? Do you consider it a phase that some women go through when they’re young, purposely avoiding a committed relationship?
Some of us believe that friends with benefits can be mutually enjoyable and perfectly suited to our needs — not just when we’re very young, and not as a matter of explicitly avoiding commitment.
In fact, it seems to me that friends with benefits gets a bad rap, as if women aren’t supposed to feel desire (in general) or lust (in particular) — especially once they become mothers, or if they’re “of a certain age.”
You can read more — and Matt’s reaction — at BarbWire, but it’s not hard to think of reasons why drifting along in the meaningless ambiguity of “friends with benefits” is an even worse idea for divorced mothers than it is for the unmarried young. The effect on children whose parents engage in such behavior is to teach them by example that “no-strings sex” is acceptable.
Ah yes, the children. McCain is correct, this is a terrible manner in which to shape young children, and even teens. The message it sends is awful, and many times destructive. Not to mention another fact. Mothers who engage in such behavior give access to their homes, and thus their kids. How many stories can you recall of a single mother’s new boyfriend hurting her child? Too many. Is getting laid really worth that price?
Then there is the practical issue with FWB, no matter who engages in it. It goes against human nature. Men and women are not designed emotionally or mentally to be sluts, and yes, I am calling the men in these “relationships” sluts too. Sex is far more than physical. It is, by its nature deeply emotional, and FWB arrangements will eventually lead to a lot of pain for one, or both of the participants.
So, in the end FWB is not “liberating”, or hip, or cool, or satisfying. In the end it is just damaging for all involved.
H’T American Power who has the headline that Feminists have been desirous of reading for decades
From Hans Bader, at Legal Insurrection.
In endorsing a bill in the California legislature that would require “affirmative consent” before sex can occur on campus, the editorial boards of the Sacramento and Fresno Bee and the Daily Californian advocated that sex be treated as “sexual assault” unless the participants discuss it “out loud” before sex, and “demonstrate they obtained verbal ‘affirmative consent’ before engaging in sexual activity.”
Never mind that consent to most sex is non-verbal, and that rape has historically been understood to be an act against someone’s will, rather than simply a non-violent act that they did not consent to in advance. Perhaps in response to the bill, the University of California, on February 25, adopted a policy requiring affirmative consent not just to sex, but to every form of “physical sexual activity” engaged in.
The affirmative-consent bill, Senate Bill 967, does not expressly require verbal permission to demonstrate consent, although it warns that “relying solely on nonverbal communication can lead to misunderstanding.”
But supporters of the bill are very clear about their desire to require verbal discussion or haggling prior to sex.
The Fresno Bee praised the bill because “it adopts in campus disciplinary cases the ‘affirmative consent standard,’ which means that ‘yes’ only means ‘yes’ if it is said out loud.” The Daily Californian declared that “the proposal’s requirement that defendants in a sexual assault case demonstrate they obtained verbal ‘affirmative consent’ before engaging in sexual activity makes SB 967 a step in the right direction.”
Since most couples have engaged in sex without “verbal” consent, supporters of the bill are effectively redefining most people, and most happily-married couples, as rapists. By demanding verbal discussion before sex, they are also meddling in people’s sex lives in a prurient fashion. (Whether consent is explicit is often inversely related to whether sex is really welcome, with grudgingly consensual acts often being preceded by more explicit discussion and haggling than acts that are truly welcomed and enjoyed, as I explain here).
Whatever happened to the Left’s desire for government to stay out of the bedroom? I guess that is not as important as further empowering government, and giving radical Feminists another tool to push their twisted ideals of sex down our throats. I mean the requirements of this law would, if followed, remove all romance, and all spontaneity from love-making. And how would the punitive phase work? Would both parties be charged? Would only the male be charged? And what of same-sex liaisons? How would it be determined which participant to charge?
To me this sounds like a law that would be impossible to enforce, and a law that would lead to college kids being punished for being, well, college kids. It also smacks of a law written to further push the insane belief among radical Feminists that No means no, and yes migh mean no, That would all depend on how crazy the Feminist is. These nutcases also believe that all P.I.V sex is rape. Yep, they are that flipping crazy! And so is this law
Taxpayers have paid more than $2.4 million to develop “origami condoms,” including male and female versions, and the “first of its kind anal condom.”
Out to “reinvent the condom,” Los Angeles businessman Danny Resnic has completed the first rounds of testing for three variations based on Japanese folding paper, courtesy of the National Institutes of Health.
The Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development initially spent $212,162 for a feasibility study on Resnic’s “new condom” in 2006. The idea was a non-rolled, silicone-based condom that “increases pleasure” and is more effective at preventing sexually transmitted diseases.
The issue is important to Resnic who said a broken condom in the 1990s changed his life.
“We all know that latex condoms don’t feel great. They break, they slip, and they interfere with intimacy,” Resnic said, sporting green neon shoes and sitting next to an outdoor fireplace for a promotional video on his website.
“From my perspective, the latex condom, designed in 1918, just got it wrong,” he said. “In 1993 I had a life-changing incident, a broken condom and an HIV diagnosis. This drastically changed my view about condoms.”
“Like many people, I don’t love condoms for the obvious reasons,” Resnic continued. “Do you know anyone who does? What if there was something new and radical that you loved using instead of latex condoms?”
Resnic says he has done just that, creating a design that gives the feeling of “sex without a condom: the real deal.”
Perfecting his condoms would not be possible without the U.S. taxpayers. “Generous research and development funding” provided by the NIH supported Resnic’s company’s research and development and four Phase I clinical trials. Since 2006, he has received $2,466,482 to test the three variations.
The NIH’s National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases then began funding Resnic’s clinical trials in 2009, providing two grants worth $1,130,670 to design and test the Origami RAI condom for “receptive anal intercourse.”
The “feasibility and acceptability study” tested the anal condom, which is “worn internally by a receptive male or female partner,” on 24 couples.
The condom is intended to “provide better sensation and less breakage” and to “increase the acceptability of condoms among those who practice anal intercourse and are at risk of HIV / STIs.”
“Unlike the off-label use of the rolled latex male condom, the [origami anal condom] OAC creates direct tactile contact for the penis inside the internally lubricated condom,” the company said. “The Top partner does not need to wear a condom, creating an experience closer to ‘sex without a condom.’”
“You can walk around and do most any activity with the condom pre-inserted,” Resnic said.
The anal condom is expected to hit the market in late 2015. It is undergoing further clinical trials.
Additionally, Resnic received $591,950 to test his “Origami female condom” on 40 heterosexual couples.
The female condom’s design provides “maximum protection against breakage, slippage, and viral permeability.” It features a “unique patented reservoir designed to minimize semen backflow,” the grant said. A video demonstration is provided on Resnic’s website.
Finally, the initial study for the “Origami male condom” cost $531,700, beginning in 2011. The male and female versions, which can “accommodate a range of penis sizes,” are also expected to reach the market in 2015.
“I am grateful for the support from the epidemiology research community and the NIH, without whom these innovations would not be possible,” Resnic said on his website.
“We re-invented the condom,” a promotional video on the Origami condom website said. The video will be used on social media to market the products, since the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) restricts their advertising on television and radio.
Set to electronic dance music and neon colors, the 30-second promo begins with a song:
We’ve realized that people are still having sex
They’ve been told not to
Perhaps they are perplexed
When you see them holding hands
They’re making future plans to engage in the activity
Do you understand me?
People are still having sex
Lust keeps on lurking
Nothing makes them stop
“We did not anticipate the marketing challenge with FCC restrictions on media placement for the condom ads on TV and radio,” Resnic said. “The FCC will not allow a condom to be shown on TV, and radio messages have language restrictions. This makes it really difficult to market a product that cannot be seen or discussed.”
Resnic, who studied design at the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, Calif., said the “strategic” promo works around the FCC rules. “Origami condoms won’t go viral, but our promo should,” he said.
The Origami condom has been praised by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, which is also providing millions in research for new condom designs. The billionaire and Microsoft founder is a strong proponent for increasing contraceptive use in developing countries in response to “population growth.”
Resnic also sees his products as being used around the world.
“In the long term we believe we can make a sustainable and measurable difference to reduce incidence of HIV and unplanned pregnancies on a global scale,” he said.
Requests for comment from NIH were not returned.
Douglas posted a link to this video, purportedly of a woman with future back problems rubbing her, shall we say mountainous melons with an ice cube. I clicked his link, and I am shocked. In fact I had to watch said video 17 times, OK 18 times, to believe my eyes! I mean HONESTLY! Who wants to watch this kind of “entertainment”? I mean what would an overly Social Conservative, the kind that closes their eyes in the shower so they will not see any nudity say? I am so outrageously outraged, I might have to watch again, and again, and,
Planned Parenthood of Northern New England (PPNNE) – which received more than $2.75 million in government funding in 2012 – has produced and posted online a video specifically aimed at teenagers that promotes bondage and sadomasochism (BDSM) and proposes “rules” to follow when engaging in these activities.
“People sometimes think that those who practice BDSM are emotionally scarred or were once abused – not true, it’s a total myth,” the host of the video, Laci Green, informs its intended audience of teens.
“BDSM relies upon and creates trust,” she says.
In a message published at the beginning of PPNNE’s 2012 annual report, PPNNE President Meagan Gallagher described the genesis of the project that produced the video on bondage and sadomasochism.
“We continued to grow our online presence, and launched an innovative social education project called ‘A Naked Notion’ (anakednotion.org),” wrote Gallagher. “The numbers show that young people took notice – PPNNE’s ‘A Naked Notion’ YouTube channel has been viewed more than a million times!”
The homepage of PPNNE’s website includes a menu of tabs that lead to internal pages. One of these is entitled “For Teens.”
“We are dedicated to protecting the sexual health of teens by providing accurate information, opportunities to explore and establish beliefs and attitudes, and the skills to communicate their needs,” says PPNNE’s “For Teens” page.
“For teens who are sexually involved, Planned Parenthood is committed to providing resources for safeguarding their emotional and physical health,” it says.
The “For Teens” page also includes a tab leading directly to the PPNNE website’s “A Naked Notion With Laci Green” page and also a tab leading to PPNNE’s “Teen Resource Center,” which features a link to the YouTube page for “A Naked Notion With Lace Green.”
In its 2012 annual report, PPNNE said “A Naked Notion” reached “young adults” through Facebook and YouTube. “Launched ‘A Naked Notion; (anakednotion.org), a social media education project, reaching more than 2,300 young adults through Facebook and more than 11,382 on YouTube, where it has garnered more than 1,005,655 views,” said the report.
“A Naked Notion is a brand new project dedicated to frank, open conversations about sexuality,” says the PPNNE webpage for the program. “It stars sex educator Laci Green and is brought to you by Planned Parenthood of Northern New England.
Green is described by PPNNE’s website as a “22 year old San-Franciscan” and a “Sex educator, video blogger, blog blogger, crisis counselor, social scientist, asparagus lover & artichoke dipper.”
One of PPNNE’s Naked Notion videos – “Getting Kinky (BDSM 101)” – features Green telling teenagers that October is “national kink month” and a good time to talk about bondage and sadomasochism.
“According to some random websites, October has been officially declared national kink month,” says Green on the video. “And when you think about it – October and kink–they are kind of a fitting pair. Halloween and kink are both about adventure and fun and exploring rolls and dynamics that are maybe a little bit different from everyday life. So many of the common kinks out there fall under the umbrella of BDSM. You may have heard of BDSM what with all of the 50-Shades-of-Gray craze and sort of getting a lot of attention right now.
“Today,” says Green, “I want to talk about what BDSM is, what it isn’t, and some of the rules that come with it.”
“People sometimes think that those who practice BDSM are emotionally scarred or were once abused—not true, it’s a total myth,” Green says later in the video. “People across the spectrum with various backgrounds participate in BDSM. The pain-is-exhilaration concept is not only old as dirt, it’s pretty common outside the bedroom.”
Before laying out a set of actual rules to follow when engaging in BDSM, Green seeks to reassure her audience that BDSM is not “abuse” and “has rules, limits and boundaries that are respected by all parties.”
“The idea of using power and control and pain in a set scene understandably sets off alarms in some people’s heads,” says Green.
“They hear that BDSM involves spanking and pain and torture – oh, my God, it’s scary stuff,” says Green. “With no further knowledge, it’s easy to conflate BDSM with abuse. But BDSM and abuse are actually very different. BDSM is about a consensual power exchange. Abuse is not. BDSM is negotiated and agreed upon before anything happens. Abuse is not. BDSM has rules, limits and boundaries that are respected by all parties. Abuse does not. BDSM relies upon and creates trust.”
According to PPNNE’s 2012 annual report, it received $2,755,235 million in federal, state, and local funding, which accounted for 15 percent of its $18.9 million annual operating budget. PPNNE also received $255,000 in federal Health Information Technology (HIT) funding.
CNSNews.com called PPNNE president and CEO Meagan Gallagher and Dr. Donna Burkett, the group’s medical director, numerous times over the course of three days to ask why the group thought it was appropriate for a tax-funded organization to promote bondage and sadomasochism to teenagers. A staff member later confirmed that Gallagher received the messages.
A woman answering the phone at the group’s Burlington, Vermont headquarters on Tuesday told CNSNews: “We are currently not commenting or talking to you. At this point, I am going to disconnect” before hanging up the phone.
On Wednesday, CNSNews.com called PPNNE’s office in Burlington again and asked the person who answered the phone to relay this question to Gallagher: “Why is it appropriate for a federally funded organization to produce a video that promotes bondage, sadism and masochism to teens?” The person said that the organization would not be commenting and then hung up the phone.
CNSNews.com also contacted all the members of the New Hampshire, Maine and Vermont congressional delegations and asked them whether they thought it was appropriate for a federally funded organization to produce a video promoting bondage and sadomasochism to teens.
Sen. Kelly Ayotte (R-NH) was the only member of Congress to reply. According to spokesman Jeff Grappone, “Senator Ayotte thinks this video, which is clearly targeted at a younger audience, is inappropriate and troubling. She believes taxpayers shouldn’t be directly or indirectly funding activity like this.”
However, despite repeated requests for comment, Rep. Peter Welch (D-VT), Rep. Chellie Pingree (D-ME), Rep. Michael Michaud (D-ME), Rep. Carol Shea-Porter (D-NH), and Rep. Ann Kuster (D-NH) did not respond.
Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-VT), Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME), Sen. Angus King (I-ME), and Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH) also dodged CNSNews.com’s questions.
On the Manning Report, Dr. James David Manning interviews Mia Pope, a former high school acquaintance of B. Hussein Obama, whom she knew as Barry Soetoro. She said she was not really friends with Barry, nobody really was, characterizing him as a liar who used people.
Mia was born in 1963 in California, but moved to Hawaii as an infant. She met Barry Soetoro in 1977 at the age of 13 or 14. They were both members of a group that just hung out at the beach in Waikiki. She knew him as a foreign student and never gave it much thought. She was surprised years later when he reemerged under a different name as a candidate for president.
Dr. Manning conducts an informative and interesting interview with Mia, in which she details Barry Soetoro’s character or lack thereof back in his youth. She says she would not have even bothered having a conversation with the Dr. if Obama had changed or were not destroying the country. She says that in light of what is going on, she felt compelled, out of patriotism, to speak up.
She details how it was very well known that Barry was not into girls and his membership in the gay community, particularly around Diamond Head. Barry never exhibited any interest in women, she says, everybody knew he was strictly into men.
According to Pope, Soetoro had a serious cocaine habit and the source of his cocaine was the white men that he had relations with.
She talks about how the two of them really didn’t get along back then, that Barry was clearly a pathological liar. She says that, “every time Barry opened his mouth, the most outlandish stories would come out.” She remembers asking, “Barry, don’t you ever get tired of lying?” She remarks how he would lie about the most self-aggrandizing types of things, always something to egotistically boost himself. She recalls how he’d turn on the charm, just to get something from you. She used an example of the way he’d bum cigarettes, as they all did from each other, and then as soon as you gave him one he’d snap and turn away. “Like adding insult to injury”, she said.
It’s a very revealing interview and well worth the time to listen. Mia doesn’t have any interest in writing a book, she says she doesn’t have enough to fill up a book, and that she isn’t out to make a name for herself. She says what brings her forward is courage, and a need to speak up regarding the wrongs that are being committed against her nation.
She goes on record that she has no interest in and wouldn’t be discussing his sexual orientation or his drug use if he weren’t still the lying “scumbag” that he used to be. But he is and therefore, out of a sense of duty to her nation, she feels a need to expose the fraud for what he is. Many things don’t add up, such as Soetoro’s admission into the extremely expensive and exclusive Punaho School and the suspicious, still unsolved murders of three gay acquaintances of Obama from the Trinity Church in Chicago.
Perhaps more individuals from Barry’s past will now feel empowered to speak up regarding the curious circumstances. If you take the time to watch the video, you will hear a firsthand account of a person upon which a false presidential persona has been structured and applied.
Larry Brinkin, who worked at the Human Rights Commission for the City of San Francisco for 22 years and was a prominent homosexual rights activist for more than 40 years, pleaded guilty to felony child pornography possession last week.
Brinkin is expected to serve six months in jail, five years of probation, and register as a sex offender for the rest of his life when he is sentenced on Mar. 5. But he likely will get to keep his city pension because possessing and viewing child porn apparently is not considered a crime of “moral turpitude” under San Francisco’s retirement/pension rules.
According to police, as reported by the San Francisco Chronicle and SF Weekly, Brinkin had photographic images of children between the ages of 1 and 3 who were being sodomized and forced to perform oral sex on adult men.
Also, in e-mails attributed to Brinkin using the account “Zack3737@aol.com,” he praised interracial adult-child sex saying, in one message, “I loved especially the [N-word] 2 year old getting nailed. Hope you’ll continue so I can see what the little blond bitch is going to get. White Power! White Supremacy! White D— Rules!”
Brinkin, who is “married” to partner Wood Massi and has a son with two mothers, retired from the city’s Human Rights Commission in 2010, when he was 64 years old. At the time and with the support of city official Bevan Dufty, the San Francisco Board of Supervisors, in honor of Brinkin’s work over the years to combat discrimination, passed a resolution declaring the first seven days of February 2010 “Larry Brinkin Week.”
While on the Human Rights Commission, Brinkin had worked as a compliance officer, responsible for helping to ensure non-discrimination against employees. He had been instrumental, back in 1982, in implementing San Francisco’s Equal Benefits Ordinance, which required employers to provide equal coverage for “domestic partners.” Further, Brinkin has been a long-time advocate for gay “marriage.”
The archived pages of SF Pride say of Brinkin, “Larry Brinkin has been an activist in San Francisco for over 35 years, co-founding Bay Area Gay Liberation, the Lesbian/Gay Labor Alliance, and the Gay & Lesbian Alternative Dispute Resolution Service. He was a pioneer in the struggle for domestic partner benefits and currently is the manager of the LGBT&HIV Division of the SF Human Rights Commission. He played a major role in recent years in the struggle for transgender rights.”
Brinkin was first arrested in the child pornography investigation in June 2012. According to the news reports, in early 2012 America Online (AOL) had contacted authorities after discovering e-mails and child pornographic images in one of the company’s subscriber accounts.
The Los Angeles Police Department, then put in charge of the case, traced the IP address of the e-mail account Zack3737@aol.com to Larry Brinkin. Police then confirmed that Brinkin had paid for the e-mail service with his credit card.
At that point, the San Francisco Police Department was informed of the case and carried on the investigation.
As the San Francisco Chronicle reported in June 2012, “Police say that Brinkin had pornographic images, some that appear to show children as young as 1 and 2 or 3 years old being sodomized and performing oral sex on adult men, in e-mail attachments linked to his account, according to a search warrant served by San Francisco police.”
“Police provided two examples of e-mail messages from last year in which Zack3737 provides disturbing descriptions of the exploitative sexual acts,” reported The Chronicle. “The e-mail account also is linked to Yahoo discussion groups on sexual exploitation of young boys and girls, according to the search warrant.”
“Investigators say they additionally found e-mails sent from Brinkin’s now-defunct city e-mail account to Zack373@aol.com,” reported SF Weekly.
Later, on Sept. 26, 2012, San Francisco District Attorney George Gascon officially charged Brinkin “with 2 counts of distributing child pornography and 4 counts of possessing child pornography,” reads a press release. “The defendant allegedly received and sent emails containing pornographic images of children.”
The district attorney’s press release further says, “Investigators determined the defendant received e-mails and sent two reply emails containing the child pornography. On June 22, the San Francisco Police Department seized computers belonging to the defendant containing dozens of images of child pornography.”
Like the e-mail already mentioned, the Bay Area Reporter noted that police cited in court records another e-mail comment about a child porn image where Brinkin boasted about a 2-to-3-year-old caucasian child being sodomized by a black adult male.
After Brinkin’s initial arrest, Theresa Sparks, executive director of San Francisco’s Human Rights Commission, told the media, “It’s almost incredulous, there’s no way I could believe such a thing. He’s always been one of my heroes, and he’s the epitome of human rights activist – this is the man who coined phrases we use in our daily language. I support Larry 100%. Hopefully, it will all come out in the investigation.”
Bevan Dufty, who served on the San Francisco Board of Supervisors and now is director of Housing Opportunity, Partnerships and Engagement in the mayor’s office, following Brinkin’s arrest said, “I have admired and respected his work for the LGBT community. I respect and am confident that there will be due process.”
Several e-mail and telephone inquiries from CNSNews.com to Dufty, the San Francisco Board of Supervisors, the San Francisco Human Rights Commission (HRC), and its media relations contact, David Miree, for comment on Larry Brinkin’s guilty plea were not answered before this story was posted.
HRC Executive Director Theresa Sparks did speak with the Bay Area Reporter, however, saying, “Overall, I have no comment, obviously, professionally. But personally I think it’s just a very, very sad commentary, a very sad situation. I’m heartbroken it happened.”
Brinkin had worked at the Human Rights Commission for 22 years and retired in 2010, when he was making a salary of $135,000, according to SF Weekly.
Concerning whether Brinkin will retain his city pension, his attorney Randall Knox said he did not think the felony child porn possession conviction was relevant because it apparently does not fall under “moral turpitude,” as explained in the city rule Proposition C.
“This is not a moral turpitude crime,” Knox told the Bay Area Reporter, and it is “not something that happened when he was working for the city.”
Under that law, approved in 2008, a city employee who commits a crime involving “moral turpitude” cannot collect retirement benefits from the city.
In a June 2008 voter guide released by SPUR, a non-profit group that focuses on urban policy in San Francisco, it explains Proposition C- Moral Turpitude as follows, “As applied to crimes that might be committed in connection with employment with the City, moral turpitude often involves some kind of theft of public property, including materials and services.
“Proposition C is an amendment to the San Francisco City Charter that would prevent retired City employees who are convicted of crimes of moral turpitude from receiving the City-funded portion of their pension, if the crimes were committed ‘in connection with their employment.’”
Brinkin pleaded guilty in his plea deal on Jan. 21. He is scheduled to be sentenced on Mar. 5. The plea deal reduced the six felony child pornography charges to one felony count of possessing child porn.
In addition to the six months’ incarceration, home detention, probation, and registering as a sex offender for life, Brinkin will also have to undergo sex offender therapy, “and is banned from working with kids, contacting a juvenile without parental consent, and living with someone responsible for a child without disclosing his offender status,” reported the San Francisco Chronicle.
A California woman – who says she was sexually abused for years by her basketball coach – confronts her attacker in a damning YouTube video that quickly led to the educator’s resignation.
“Everything was stolen from me,” Jaime Carrillo, now a mother of two, told KTLA5 as she choked back tears. “I want her to be in jail and to pay for what she’s done.”
Carrillo, 28, has come forward to expose a relationship Andrea Cardosa allegedly started when the girl was just 12 – and stretched throughout her teenage years, according to reports.
Carrillo recorded her phone confrontation with Cardosa – who had since risen to the ranks of assistant principal at Alhambra High School – in a video that was sent to school officials.
Cardosa resigned from her post Friday – the same day the video was posted – and has gone into relative hiding since she was exposed online. Carrillo’s lawyers are exploring the possibility of a criminal or civil suit.
“The matter was handed over to the Alhambra Police Department who immediately began their investigation,” the school said in a statement.
Cardosa was reportedly allowed to quietly resign from her previous position at the middle school and continue her career, her lawyer said.
“That’s typically called passing the trash. If that is in fact true, everyone would agree that’s absolutely outrageous conduct,” her lawyer David Ring said during a news conference on Monday.
The alleged abuse began while Cardosa was working at Chemawa Middle School in Riverside. Carrillo says she was an impressionable girl when Cardosa began ensnaring her in a web of self-pity, Carillo told KLTA.
Cardosa cornered Carrillo one day at school – her advances grew from kissing to X-rated groping, the girl said.
“She was kissing me, and then it turned into putting her hands down my pants,” she told KTLA. “She just completely manipulated me into thinking that I needed her and I wanted it.”
The two carried on the torrid tryst until Carrillo was 20, she said. Cardosa can barely muster a full sentence in the video as Carrillo repeatedly slammed her alleged abuser for the entire world to hear.
“You should be so ashamed and disgusted with yourself,” Carrillo yells into the phone.
The educator could only eke out an “I am” on the other line.
“How f—–g dare you,” the distraught woman says, shaking as she holds the phone.
“I regret it every day,” Cardosa says glumly.
The YouTube video has collected more than 289,000 views as of Tuesday morning. Many of the commenters commended Carrillo for her bravery. Formal charges have yet to be brought against Cardosa.
Carrillo, who admits to still being emotionally damaged by the relationship, said Monday that she was shocked that Cardosa never apologized during the heated confrontation.
“It took a lot for me to come forward, but I kept thinking about my own kids and how I didn’t wouldn’t want anything happening to them,” Carrillo said.

Here’s the chilling confrontation between Carrillo and Cardosa, blow-by-blow:
Carrillo: Is this Ms. Cardosa?
Carrillo: Um, the Ms. Cardosa that used to work in Moreno Valley?
Cardosa: Well, it depends on what part of Moreno Valley. Um, what, you know, um, yes.
Carrillo: Is it Val Verde school district?
Carrillo: [inaudible] used to work at Chemawa?
Carrillo: OK. This is Jamie. Um. You’re an assistant principal, huh?
Cardosa: [sigh] Yes.
Carrillo: So what happens when a student comes in and says that they’re having a sexual relationship with a teacher?
Cardosa: Then I would involve law enforcement.
Carrillo: So how is that any different from what you did when I was at Chemawa middle?
Cardosa: It’s not.
Carrillo: So why are you excluded from the law? Why did you do that? I was only 12-years-old when I met you. You realize you brainwashed me and you manipulated me? And that what you did was wrong?
Cardosa: Yes. And I regret it.
Carrillo: You know that I am completely messed up? That I have so many issues because of you?
Cardosa: I just wanted to help you.
Carrillo: How is having a sexual relationship with a 12-year-old student helping?
Cardosa: That wasn’t anything that I intended. I don’t even know what happened.
Carrillo: It’s completely shocking to me that you are an assistant principal. Are you doing this with other students too?
Carrillo: Is that how you help them?
Cardosa: No. Not at all.
Carrillo: You ruined my life. You ruined my childhood. You realize that?
Carrillo: You sicken me. You sicken me. Every day when I think about what you did you sicken me. I have kids of my own and I’m the age now that I pretty much met you at and I could never think about doing the things that you did. You should be so ashamed and so disgusted with yourself.
Cardosa: I am. I am.
Carrillo: How F—–g dare you.
Cardosa: I regret it every day. Every day.
Carrillo: You’re disgusting. Bye.
While lawmakers in New York State are considering delaying the Common Core standards initiative because of its disastrous rollout, new problems with the academic standards are now drawing intense criticism.
Carol Burris, New York’s 2013 High School Principal of the Year, reports at Valerie Strauss’s Washington Post blog that Anna Shah, the mother of a kindergarten student, discovered highly offensive materials on the Student Services Page of the Engage NY Common Core materials site. When Shah reported her discovery to NYSED, the page was taken down, though the link had reportedly been active since October of 2012.
The link below is to a screen shot made prior to the removal of the site.
The New York State Education Department (NYSED) site contained a section called “Make test prep fun,” which directed students to a site with quizzes that help them find out if they are a “sexy bitch,” “evil,” a “freak,” “insane,” etc.
Scrolling down and right on the page, students could also click on the links to take quizzes that would help them find out if they are “sluts,” or “losers.”
Questions on the “Are you a slut?” test include:
How many sexual partners have you had?
Would you have a threesome or a gang bang?
Are you often called a slut?
Have you ever let a boy hump you or grind on you in your younger years?
Have you ever messed around with brothers, cousins, or some other people related somehow?
What type of sex do you enjoy/prefer?
Students who wish to find out if they are a “loser” must answer these questions:
Are you a virgin?
Do you pay to talk to hot girls, and or pay for any female interaction?
How many times per day do you jerk your dick to porn/female pictures?
When did you last have sex?
How much is in your savings and checking?
What’s the average size of your dick?
How much time do you spend on femdom sites per day?
Do you cross dress?
As Burris writes, the Engage NY website, created and maintained by NYSED, was supposed to be a step in a positive direction for Common Core in New York. Board of Regents Chancellor Merryl Tisch had earlier boasted that New York is the only state using its award of over $28 million in Race to the Top funds to develop curricula aligned with the new standards:
When parents and teachers complained about the content of the curriculum modules, state education Commissioner John King dismissed their concerns, saying that he has “tremendous confidence in the materials.” He often describes the interest in New York’s reforms by the number of “hits” on Engage NY pages.
Based on the “Make test prep fun” fiasco, Burris quips, “sometimes ‘hits’ on the pages prove to be embarrassing.”
Whatever happened in New Jersey under Governor Chris Christie in regards to the already-infamous “bridgegate,” the open gloating by the media over the unacceptable behavior of the Republican governor’s staffers is extremely revealing.
Regardless of one’s views on Governor Chris Christie, this coordinated political feeding frenzy is liberal hypocrisy at its finest. Take a look at some of these over-the-top headlines:
Here are 25 underreported stories that most news media barely reported on, or blew by as quickly as possible because Democrats are involved.
1. Fast & Furious
Attorney General Eric Holder was held in contempt by the U.S. House for refusing to turn over Department of Justice documents related to the Fast and Furious gunrunning scandal, which led to hundreds of Mexican civilians being killed and U.S. border patrol agent Brian Terry’s death. (See NBC News, August 3, 2011 and Independent Journal Review, June 29, 2012.)
Tyrone Woods, Sean Smith, Christopher Stevens and Glen Doherty were killed during the attack, which came without any rescue attempt by the Obama administration. Nevertheless, the White House tried to cover up what happened by blaming a YouTube for causing the terrorist attack, even though there was no protest at the Libyan mission.
3. IRS Targeting Scandal
The IRS not only admitted that it had targeted the Tea Party and other conservative groups during the 2012 presidential campaign in an effort to challenge their tax-exempt status applications, but it also apologized for doing so. But where is the rest of the investigation, and what about accountability?
4. AP/Fox News Tracking
Eric Holder, the man who abruptly recused himself from the AP & Fox phone records scandal, signed off on the private email search warrant claiming Fox reporter James Rosen was a suspected criminal. Holder appears to have misled Congress by feigning he knew nothing about it. The Department of Justice also tracked the phone calls of AP news reporters.
5. ObamaCare’s No-Bid Website
According to a senior watchdog reporter at the Washington Examiner, federal officials only considered one firm to design the ObamaCare exchange website instead of putting the task up for competitive bidding.
6. NSA Scandal
At a Congressional hearing, Senator Ron Wyden asked Director of National Intelligence James Clapper if the NSA collect “any type of data” on law-abiding citizens. And Clapper said no. If the reports in the Washington Post and elsewhere on PRISM are accurate, then this statement appears to be a lie.
Democratic Rep. Anthony Weiner confessed that he tweeted a bulging-underpants photo of himself to a young woman and admitted to “inappropriate” exchanges with six women before and after getting married at a press conference in New York shortly before resigning. (See Huffington Post, June 6, 2011.)
8. Spitzer Prostitution Scandal
Former Governor Elliot Spitzer resigned after it was discovered he had engaged in financial transactions with prostitute Ashley Dupre. Spitzer is pictured above holding a press conference with his humiliated wife Silda Wall. Spitzer later landed a short-running show on CNN. (See NY Daily News, June 23, 2010.)
9. Jon Edwards’ Infidelity
In 2008, John Edwards admitted he had cheated on his cancer-stricken wife, Elizabeth, with former campaign staffer Rielle Hunter during his second presidential campaign. He was later indicted June 2011 on federal campaign finance charges. (See Huffington Post, June 1, 2012.)
10. Chris Dodd – Countrywide Scandal
Former Chairman of the Senate Banking Committee Chris Dodd (among five other politicians) received favorable loans from Countrywide that would have saved him up to $70,000, among other financial scandals. He is now Chairman of the Motion Pictures Association of America. (See NY Post, March 30, 2009.)
11. GSA Scandal
The General Services Administration or GSA held a lavish party during a five-day conference in Las Vegas, blowing over $820,000 in taxpayer dollars on shrimp and champagne, commemorative coins, and a mind reader/motivational speaker. (See ABC News, April 16, 2012.)
12. IRS Waste
The IRS blew $50 million dollars for extravagant conferences and ridiculous training videos, doled out $70 million in bonuses and even sent 23,994 tax refunds worth a combined $46,378,040 to “unauthorized” alien workers at one address in Atlanta, Georgia. All without a slap on the wrist.
13. Solyndra/ Green Energy
The now-bankrupt solar energy company, was able to procure $535 million in government loan guarantees. This was after the Obama campaign received over a $100,000 in donations from the “green energy” company, partly bundled for the Obama campaign by major investor and oilman George Kaiser. (See WSJ, September 9, 2011)
14. Charlie Rangel
Resigned Chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee and current Congressman Charlie Rangel failed to report rental income from vacation property in the Dominican Republic as well as hundreds of thousands of dollars in additional income and assets on his financial disclosure statements. (See Huffington Post, July 29, 2010)
15. Maxine Waters – Banking
Current Congresswoman Maxine Waters was brought up on House ethics charges after personally lobbying for a bailout of OneUnited bank, where her husband had previously sat on the board and owned about $350,000 in the bank’s stock. (See Bloomberg, August 11, 2010.)
16. Tony Rezko
According to ABC News, convicted criminal and Obama bundler Tony Rezko made a sweetheart real estate deal with Barack Obama, saving the future president hundreds of thousands of dollars. Obama later said it was a “boneheaded mistake.” (See Townhall, July 16, 2012.)
17. Fannie Mae
Franklin Raines, former Fannie Mae CEO, received million dollar bonuses on top of $91 million salary at FM although the mortgage giant was at center of housing meltdown storm in 2008. Both Raines and former FM CEO Jim Johnson ($21 million salary) worked with the Obama campaign. Obama was the #3 receiver of campaign dollars from Fannie Mae, a so-called “private-public” partnership. (See Politico, October 31, 2011.)
18. Jon Corzine – MF Global
Billionaire bundler for Obama and former New Jersey Governor Jon Corzine, as CEO of the imploded financial services firm MF Global, apparently perjured himself in Congressional hearings, because he did order $200 million in funds to be moved from MF Global’s customer accounts to illegally cover brokerage accounts at JP Morgan Chase. Chase’s CEO Jamie Dimon is a close associate of Barack Obama. (See Politico, May 14, 2012 and Bloomberg March 23, 2012)
19. Geithner Tax Evasion
U.S. Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner failed to pay Social Security taxes, even though he was advised by his employer to do so. He only admitted to the tax evasion after he was caught by an IRS audit. (See Washington Post, January 19, 200.)
20. Jesse Jackson Jr.
The Office of Congressional Ethics found “substantial reason to believe” that Jesse Jackson Jr. attempted to buy Obama’s Senate seat from convicted former Governor Rod Blagojevich by giving campaign contributions. He was later convicted of illegal misuse of campaign funds. (See Politico, December 2, 2011.)
21. David Wu
Oregon Congressman David Wu resigned after the teenage daughter of a friend accused Wu of “aggressive and unwanted sexual behavior.” (See CBS News, July 26, 2011.)
22. David Paterson
According to the NY Daily News, former NY Governor David Paterson “personally directed two female staffers to pressure a domestic violence victim who was pointing the finger at his right-hand man,” his aide David Johnson. (See NY Daily News, March 2, 2010.)
23. Eric Massa
Former NY Representative Eric Massa resigns after sexual harassment allegations were made by a male staffer. Massa later confessed to the charges. (See CBS News, March 5, 2010.)
24. Tom Donilon – National Security Leaks
National Security Advisor Tom Donilon, a man who before the Obama administration had no serious experience in national security, has been widely speculated to have leaked high level security secrets. (See Gateway Pundit, June 11, 2012.)
This list is just the tip of the iceberg from the past few years, surely many people who get news outside of the major left-wing news media can think of many other examples.
So, why is it that Chris Christie is responsible for everything his staffers do, while nothing in the White House is Obama’s fault?
BEAVERTON, Ore. — A Beaverton man was arrested following a string of erratic outbursts that culminated in the suspect allegedly masturbating in a Salem roadhouse, officials said.
It took a Taser and more than a dozen officers on Sunday to finally subdue Andrew Frey inside Iggy’s Bar & Grill on Portland Road Northeast, the Marion County Sheriff’s office said.
You Sick Freak!
The Other McCain, who else would vover, ah uncover this, has the story of Sydney Leathers and her new start up business Labias and Lucite Are Us
It is rather quaint to remember that when Sydney Elaine Leathers was first identified as the former Obama campaign worker involved in a cybersex scandal with Anthony Weiner, some were reluctant to publish her name, seeing her as the victim of a predator.
The plump brunette harlot immediately seized upon the scandal to launch a porn career. And then . . .
There’s no delicate and polite way to say this: Sydney discovered she doesn’t like how her vagina looks. She thinks her labia are too big.
So she’s going to get surgery to trim her enormous flapping bat wings.
Sydney will auction off the trimmings, encased in Lucite.
Is there a cultural significance to this story? Does my reporting this unsavory news serve any redeeming social purpose?
What we can discern is an extreme example of a trend, the vagina as commodity, which I have previously discussed: The pervasive influence of pornography and the general promiscuity of the “hook-up” culture has created competitive pressures on women, who feel that their sexual performance is constantly being judged, evaluated as a commercial product in the erotic marketplace.
You know, I almost, almost I tell ya, almost entitled this post Noted Slut to Get Cosmetic Surgery, World’s Largest Labia Hardest Hit. But that would have been in poor taste I think.
Good Freaking Grief! Go read the rest, it is hilarious as it is sad and PRAY that Leathers never gets into the “winter coat” or “giant pink mudflaps” business, you have to read the rest if you want to get those references.
