(Book) Whiteness: The Original Sin

https://www.amazon.com/Whiteness-Original-Sin-Jim-Goad/dp/1729700411

As they say where I come from: Ol boy is pretty good! Jim Goad highlights two truths. 1.) That Whites (in particular White males) are under attack with pinpoint specific examples. 2.) And with more pinpoint examples that today’s progressive (and if I may add fanatical) liberals are the biggest hypocrites – even more than politicians. If you ask what is truth then you get it in a shot from the hip style from Mr. Jim Goad. Clearly has his hand on the pulse of today’s culture. Powerful, hard-hitting and honest; I highly recommend it for those who are interested in the real state of affairs. I know his critics have to hate him because the truth hurts. I highly recommend his work; he is the Dirty Harry of Journalism.

Mayor, doctors and social workers arrested in scheme to brainwash children into believing they had been abused and sell them

Italian police have arrested 18 people, including a mayor, social workers and psychologists for allegedly “brainwashing” children into believing their parents had abused them, in a scheme to take them away from their families and sell them to foster parents.

Authorities in the central Italian city of Reggio Emilia revealed how a network of carers allegedly used hours of psychotherapy sessions and electroshocks to convince children their parents had sexually abused them and “alter their memory ahead of the trials”, Italy’s Ansa news agency reports.

They then allegedly sold the children on to friends and acquaintances in a scheme worth hundreds of thousands of euros.

The investigations, codenamed “Angels and Demons”, started in the summer of 2018 after police received a series of reports of wrongdoing that initially proved false.

The 18 arrested include Andrea Carletti, mayor of Bibbiano, a town of about 10,000 near Reggio Emilia, as well as politicians, doctors, social workers and psychologists.

The network initially fabricated false reports to take children away from disadvantaged families. Then they proceeded to convince the children that they had indeed been abused.

In an episode reported by Italian newspaper La Repubblica, a girl said she couldn’t remember why she couldn’t see her father anymore.

“But don’t you remember you said you didn’t want to see him? I remember this,” a psychologist told her.

“I didn’t say that,” the girl replied.

“Yes, you said you didn’t want to see him because you were afraid that he would hurt you…” the psychologist is quoted as insisting. “That he might seek vengeance… or take you away. Do you remember the fear you felt? Do you remember now?”

The child allegedly said she didn’t remember and that she cried because she missed her father.

Toys ‘R’ Us bankruptcy lawyers to receive $56 million in fees while tens of thousands of laid-off workers will split $2 million leaving each of them with just $60 severance pay

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7194903/Toys-R-bankruptcy-lawyers-receive-56-million-fees-workers-split-2-million.html

Workers at the company will be splitting $2 million between them. The sum is paltry compared to $56 million in fees awarded to Kirkland & Ellis, the law firm representing Toys ‘R’ Us.

A bankruptcy judge on Thursday approved the settlement to a class-action lawsuit filed on behalf of 33,000 former Toys ‘R’ Us workers which will see each of them receive about $60.

New Finnish Study Finds No Evidence For Man-Made Climate Change

The Paper: https://arxiv.org/pdf/1907.00165.pdf

https://summit.news/2019/07/11/new-finnish-study-finds-no-evidence-for-man-made-climate-change/

The paper, titled ‘No experimental evidence for the significant anthropogenic climate change’ was published by Jyrki Kauppinen and Pekka Malmi.

The study found that, “During the last hundred years the temperature is increased about 0.1°C because of carbon dioxide. The human contribution was about 0.01°C.”

Kauppinen and Malmi conclude that global temperatures are controlled primarily by cloud cover and that “only a small part” of the increased carbon dioxide concentration is anthropogenic.

The study also calls into question the claims of the UN IPCC, which concluded that global temperatures are largely driven by human activity.

While the methods and results of the study can be debated, this once again illustrates how there is no overwhelming consensus on man-made global warming as the media often claims.

ADL Slams SCOTUS Decision to Allow WWI Memorial Cross to Stay on Public Land

ADL Director Jonathan Greenblatt wrote in a statement:

We are alarmed that the Supreme Court has allowed a 40-foot memorial cross to remain on government property in Maryland. As Justice Ginsburg wrote in dissent, ‘the principal symbol of Christianity around the world should not look over public thoroughfares, suggesting official recognition of that religion’s paramountcy.’

This decision unfortunately undermines well-established precedents safeguarding the separation of church and state. While religious symbols like this cross and other war memorials maintained on public land may be ‘rooted in history and tradition’ and not perceived as coercive, that should not be the determining principle as to whether they are constitutional. And the Court’s effort to distinguish between crosses that have been in place for a long time and ones that might be erected on government property in the future fails to address the serious concern we have about the message of religious endorsement any such cross or other religious display conveys. . . .

Netanyahu’s Iran Dilemma: Getting Trump to Act Without Putting Israel on the Front Line

The latest attack’s proximity to a clearly American target (the embassy in Baghdad) was presumably what set Trump off and led him to switch to threatening Tehran directly. Nevertheless, his basic instinct still appears to be that it’s better to avoid unnecessary wars in the Middle East. For now, America’s moves appear to be primarily defensive.

In this conflict, Israel is hoping to have its cake and eat it too. Ever since Trump was elected president two and a half years ago, Netanyahu has been urging him to take a more aggressive line toward Iran, in order to force it to make additional concessions on its nuclear program and disrupt its support for militant organizations.

Leftists Rage After NYT Reports The ‘Happiest Of All Wives’ Are Religious Conservatives

The New York Times caused a mass triggering on Monday after publishing a report showing religious conservative women have the happiest marriages.

“It turns out that the happiest of all wives in America are religious conservatives, followed by their religious progressive counterparts,” the NY Times reported late Sunday. “Fully 73 percent of wives who hold conservative gender values and attend religious services regularly with their husbands have high-quality marriages.”

Climate Oops: National Park Begins Subtle Removal of “Gone by 2020” Signs After Glaciers Just Keep Not Being Gone

The climate change lobby has been assuring us for years – decades, really – that we are all on the brink of certain death because of global warming or cooling or climate change or whatever the term du jour is at the time. In the ’80s actor Ted Danson campaigned against global cooling, saying we had 20 years to shift course or succumb to the new ice age. Al Gore told us the inconvenient truth of our impending death way back in 2006. In California, former Governor Jerry Brown told his residents that the summer fire season was only going to get worse and worse thanks to global warming. And of course who can forget Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’ constant, dire warnings that we only have a mere dozen years left on this planet?

Glacier National Park in M0ntana has been warning about the coming apocalypse by posting signs around the park that say “Gone by 2020”, referring to fears that the glaciers were receding more rapidly than normal and would eventually melt completely, leading to other natural disasters.

How the Nazis derailed the medical advances around sexual reassignment surgery by Asher Kohn

Today, there are well over 100 doctors in the United States who perform sexual reassignment surgery, according to TransHealthCare. But at one point, that number was more like…three.

Two of those worked with Christine Jorgensen, who is often credited as the first recipient of such surgery. She had to go to Denmark to begin treatment, but returned stateside in 1953 as a blond vamp. Becoming a nightclub singer and TV star with a Lauren Bacall fashion sense, she was an international sensation. But it turns out she was not the first person to have her sex reassigned.

Sex reassignment surgery had an earlier life, in an unexpected time and place: 1920s Germany. Several doctors there performed such surgeries using analog technology and organic hormones. They worked under a new paradigm: What if they could make someone’s body fit their mind instead of forcing their mind to fit their body?

“Sex-change surgery did not take root…because of new or unusual medical technology,” writes Yale professor Joanne Meyerowitz in her 2002 book How Sex Changed. “It took root because Germany had a vocal campaign for sexual emancipation.”

. . . .

There are also accounts of transplanting ape testicles into men, womb insertion, and voluntary castration. Constructed vaginal openings, done with rudimentary painkillers, bordered on the macabre.

But Hirschfeld took a different route. The Stonewall Society refers to him as part educator and part “father-confessor” who claimed to have discussed homosexuality and transsexual issues with over 30,000 people. He understood surgery as a promising field in the portfolio of sex studies, not as a new practice with which he could make his name.

Hirschfeld saw himself as an activist, constantly referring to a motto of “justice through science.”—which also made him a target of Germany’s rising far right. In 1921, he was jumped after a lecture and left for dead on the street.

He persisted, though, and became an intermediary between the German government and the trans community. One story tells of a trans woman who was arrested on counts of female impersonation. The judge contacted Hirschfeld, who consulted with the woman. She requested and received reassignment surgery, and later worked in Hirschfeld’s Institute for Sexual Science.

Two of Hirschfeld’s colleagues performed numerous reassignments and began to realize that their patients tended to be wealthy Germans. They publicized their surgeries in newspapers, hoping poorer trans people could learn about the procedures and get in touch.

By the early 1930s, people came from around the world to undergo reassignment surgery in Berlin. Then Adolf Hitler was appointed Chancellor of Germany in January 1931. Two years later, his brownshirts broke into Hirschfeld’s institute and burned his journals and research. When Hirschfeld was out of Germany on tour, the Nazi student group marched on the Institute. Over 20,000 books were set aflame, as well as medical diagrams and photographs crucial to understanding sex reassignment surgery. Hirschfeld and his colleagues were Jewish, but it wasn’t just that. Hitler also publicly raged against the “vice” of homosexuality and the “degenerate” lives of transsexuals. They weakened the Aryan cause.

The patients were largely saved from targeting by the Nazis by the fact that the documentation of their procedures went up in smoke, but the trans community’s Great Library of Alexandria was burned, and the medical research was pushed back decades.

Israel Evacuates Surrogate Babies From Nepal but Leaves the Mothers Behind

An Israeli Boeing-747 returned from Nepal to Israel’s Ben Gurion International Airport on Tuesday afternoon, and among its 229 passengers were 15 Israeli babies, all born within the past six weeks to surrogate mothers in Nepal.

Some of the babies were with their Israeli parents and others were cared for by Israeli passengers. None of the surrogate mothers were allowed to travel.

The infants’ arrival completed the evacuation of 26 surrogate Israeli babies from Nepal, where a devastating earthquake on Saturday killed more than 4,000. The rescue process, coupled with widely published photos of the newborns being cradled by Israeli medics on the Tel Aviv tarmac, has thrust Israel’s reliance on Nepalese surrogates into the spotlight, revealing a little known link between Nepal and Israel and starting a debate here about the ethics of international surrogacy. . . .

Only heterosexual couples can easily employ surrogate mothers in Israel. Gay couples and single parents tend to look abroad to bear children with surrogates. For many years, India — where costs are low but the standard of medical care is generally high — was the preferred surrogacy option for Israelis, but a change to the law there in 2013 prevented gay men and couples who had been married for less than two years from engaging surrogate mothers. The shift in the law caught many Israelis midway through the surrogacy process. The Indian women traveled to Nepal to give birth and the Israeli surrogacy agencies then switched their operations from India to Nepal. . . .

Many Asian and European countries ban commercial surrogacy, and it can cost up to $150,000 in the U.S. and Canada but only $30,000 in Nepal. . . .
