VIDEO — The Truth About Rape Culture

Stefan Molyneux
Dec 16, 2014

What is rape culture? Rape culture describes the cultural makeup of a society where rape is pervasive and – due to people’s views on gender and sexuality – normalized.

Feminists apply this term to societies throughout the world – and Western societies in particular – arguing that the issue of rape is downplayed or outright ignored – an attitude that significantly contributes to the vilification and revictimization of people who are raped.

But what is the truth about Rape culture?

It’s not just about ‘fake news stories’. Facebook’s new ‘flagging’ feature will allow agenda-driven political agitators, governments and corporations to control the narrative and all but silence dissent.

Dotcom wants ‘to kill Skype’ with MegaChat, his encrypted video calling service

RT News
Published time: January 22, 2015 18:46

Kim Dotcom (Reuters / Nigel Marple)

Kim Dotcom has launched a public beta version of his latest project, with which he aims to wipe out Skype. The video calling service called MegaChat is to be encrypted to ensure secure communications for all its users.

The program will be introduced “starting with video calling today,” the German born entrepreneur said on Twitter on Thursday. The new program registered half a million calls in just a matter of hours.

Dotcom has says the new product, which has been developed by the Mega “Conspiracy Team” will be a “Skype killer,” and hopes to end the domination of the Microsoft based product.

MegaChat’s main selling point is that it is encrypted from both ends. The NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden made revelations that Skype had co-operated with America’s spy agency to allow communications to be monitored – something that would not happen with Dotcom’s new product.

The entrepreneur also mentioned that he soon hopes to release a messaging service and a video conference call service in the near future.

“Gray State” Film Family Killed, Labeled ”Murder-Suicide” – Dead for Weeks

by Amanda Warren
Activist Post
Jan 19, 2015

David Crowley, aged 29, had headed up a small crew for an ongoing full-feature and highly anticipated production called Gray State. The project had been in the works for over four years. A description excerpt from the film’s website, which raised over $61,000 from fans:

The world reels with the turmoil of war, geological disaster, and economic collapse, while Americans continue to submerge themselves in illusions of safety and immunity. While rights are sold for security, the federal government, swollen with power, begins a systematic takeover of liberty in order to bring about a New World Order.

Americans, quarantined to militarized districts, become a population ripe for tyrannical control. Fearmongering, terrorism, police state, martial law, war, arrest, internment, hunger, oppression, violence, resistance – these are the terms by which Americans define their existence. Neighbor is turned against neighbor as the value of the dollar plunges to zero, food supplies are depleted, and everyone becomes a terror suspect….

The following concept trailer has amassed nearly one million views since its YouTube debut in 2012:

In a stomach-churning turn of events, the filmwriter/producer David Crowley, his 28-year-old wife Komel, and young daughter, Rani, were found dead in their Apple Valley, MN home – after not being seen or heard from since before Christmas.

Most of the information about the discovery centers on neighbor Collin Prochnow who saw packages piling up and decided to check up and ring the door bell, when he glanced in the window and saw all three Crowleys on the floor, that “just didn’t look human.” He had actually told his wife there were dummies [mannequins] on the floor along with a black handgun, before calling police. But the police reported finding people who were “obviously dead.”

How can an entire family, including a five-year-old daughter go unnoticed for so long? All reports indicate that their bodies had been on the living room floor since before Christmas. The neighbor figures that it happened before Christmas, as packages were piling up at the Crowley home and there was no activity stemming from the home since before then. Reportedly, family and at least one colleague tried unsuccessfully to reach them before Christmas. The actual cause or time of death has not been released. By Sunday, the previously crowded mailbox and front stoop were bare.

Mainstream media have labeled it an apparent “murder-suicide” but – hear for yourself what police found when they arrived on January 17th….

Audio of the police communication is public and at around 2:35 mentions that the officers found the rear sliding door unlocked, and slightly ajar.

Notably, there is no suicide note. Details linking the event to a murder-suicide have not been released except to call it “apparent.” A black handgun on the floor next to the family is, so far, where the investigative details end. In other words, definitive information of what happened to the Crowleys is either unknown or unreleased.

The Importance of Being Angry

Blacklisted News
Jan 13, 2015

Source: Robert J. Burrowes, Guest Post

Unfortunately, in many circles, anger has a bad reputation. There are several reasons for this. One reason is that we are scared when people are angry at us, so we try to scare people, especially children, out of being angry. By doing this, we hope to escape responsibility for our dysfunctional behaviour.

Another reason that anger has a bad reputation is because it enables people to defend themselves against violence and other forms of abuse. But if we want obedient and hardworking students, reliable and pliant employees/soldiers and submissive law-abiding citizens, then we must terrorize people out of being angry. Social control is not easy with people who are powerful and you need your anger to be powerful.

A third reason that anger has a bad reputation is that anger is often confused with violence. But anger and violence are not the same thing. People who are violent are not angry; they are scared or, more accurately, terrified, and they use violence in a dysfunctional attempt to get what they need. See ‘Why Violence?’ http://tinyurl.com/whyviolence and ‘Fearless Psychology and Fearful Psychology: Principles and Practice’ http://anitamckone.wordpress.com/articles-2/fearless-and-fearful-psychology/

Anger is a vitally important evolutionary gift and without it we are perpetual victims. Anger has two primary evolutionary functions: to let us know when we are being threatened or attacked (whether by a more ‘subtle’ abuse or in an explicitly violent manner) while also giving us the power to respond effectively to this threat/attack.

The individual who is not afraid to be angry, will respond immediately, powerfully and, in virtually all cases, nonviolently to any threat or attack, warding off the attacking individual, for example, simply by clearly showing their anger (which is, of course, a clear defence in itself, and watching a snarling dog or wolf will readily convince you of the effectiveness of this form of defence).

In contrast, the individual who is afraid to be angry will either retreat inappropriately, use violence to ‘counter-attack’ (including in situations in which the ‘threat’ or ‘attack’ to which they are responding is actually an outcome of their own projection) or engage in vicarious and powerless acts of rebellion or interference.

What is a powerless act of rebellion? It is an act that is harmful to themselves, others and/or the Earth that is done in a way that allows the individual to either avoid responsibility (as would occur, for example, by dropping an item of rubbish, carrying out an act of vandalism or starting a wildfire where no one will see them) or to delude themselves that they will not be held accountable (as occurs, for example, when someone pretends that there is no connection between their unhealthy diet and their ill-health).

Similarly, an individual might engage in a powerless act of interference in the life of another as an unconscious manifestation of their suppressed anger. For example, if someone is angry because they feel that they are being forced to clean up after someone else, but this anger is fearfully suppressed and cannot be acted upon by raising and dealing with the conflict openly, then the person might half clean up but then leave all of the cleaning equipment in the way of the other person in an attempt to powerlessly ‘force’ that person to clean up after them.

More interestingly perhaps, an individual might engage in a powerless act of interference in their own life as an unconscious manifestation of their suppressed anger. How might they do this? And why? A person might get in their own way, for example, by being untidy, disorganised or by persisting in using dysfunctional equipment (rather than having it repaired). And they do this as an unconscious projection of one or both of their parents ‘getting in my way’ when they were a child. This ‘getting in my way’ usually occurs when the child is ‘held to account’ for making mistakes (that is, being inappropriately and unfairly treated as dysfunctional) but is not allowed to get angry about this unjust response to its ‘mistakes’. So, not allowed to get angry, the child (and later the adult) wants to ‘insist’ on doing what they want (dysfunctional or otherwise) because this represents them trying to learn to do things for themselves (and ‘getting away with’ making mistakes in doing so). Unfortunately, they are now trapped in this behaviour pattern because they cannot have the feelings, which are fearfully suppressed, that would allow them to restore more functional behaviour.

Finally, the individual whose anger is warped by both their own fear and pain, will probably act in a vindictive manner, trying to inflict unnecessary or excessive violence on the person who is threatening or attacking them (again, including in situations in which this threat/attack might simply be a projection from their own past).

Paris Shooting Suspects Under French Radar for YEARS

The Daily Sheeple

by Tony Cartalucci
Land Destroyer Report
January 11th, 2015

The Paris shooting suspects were no strangers to the French government and its security and intelligence agencies. One suspect, Cherif Kouachi, was arrested by French police in 2005, tried and sentenced to 3 years in prison for “association with wrongdoers with the intention of committing a terrorist act,” but his sentence would later be suspended.

Slate Magazine would report in their article, “The Details of Paris Suspect Cherif Kouachi’s 2008 Terrorism Conviction,” that:

Kouachi was arrested in January 2005, accused of planning to join jihadists in Iraq. He was said to have fallen under the sway of Farid Benyettou, a young “self-taught preacher” who advocated violence, but had not actually yet traveled to Iraq or committed any acts of terror. Lawyers at the time said he had not received weapons training and “had begun having second thoughts,” going so far as to express “relief” that he’d been apprehended.

Strange then that Kourachi and his brother would then be reported to have traveled to the Middle East to receive training from Al Qaeda, then to have fought in Syria in a war backed in part by France, before returning home and carrying out this most recent terror attack, all while being tracked by French intelligence. If Kouachi could be arrested for “association with wrongdoers with the intention of committing a terrorist act,” why wasn’t he arrested immediately upon his return to France for having received and employed military training by a terrorist organization?

PODCAST — Interview 989 – Pearse Redmond Peels the TOR Onion

The Corbett Report
01/13/2015

The TOR Project promises its users a modicum of privacy protection from would-be information gatherers, both smalltime crooks and nation-state cybersecurity agencies. But do these promises hold up to scrutiny? And who is behind the TOR Project itself? And why did a TOR developer recently doxx a critic on Twitter? Joining us today to dissect this onion stew is Pearse Redmond of Porkins Policy Review.
