Life would be infinitely happier if we could only be born at the age of eighty and gradually approach eighteen. - Mark Twain
The article below outlines the initial legal issues from a month ago. What you need to know after you read it is that Paygea and CAL are two of the companies that was helping Mansef to launder money back when Mansef got in trouble for international money laundering.

“In exhibits provided by the government, some of those Israel-based processors transacting business with Premium Services included Paygea Ltd., CAL-International, Mizrahi Tefahot Bank Ltd. and Israel Discount Bank Ltd., whose subsidiary Israel Credit Cards-Cal Ltd. was levied a $13.5 million fine in November by VISA Europe over chargebacks.”
I would bet this apple isnt very far from the tree….
ISRAELI PROSECUTORS CONSIDERING OPTIONS AGAINST CREDIT CARD ISSUER
22nd April, 2015 at 10:55:44
Investigations indicate that billions of shekels in illicit online gambling transactions may have been facilitated.
Prosecutors in Israel are mulling the possibility of an indictment on credit card issuer Cal following an investigation that may indicate that the company was used to clear billions of shekels in online gambling and other illicit transactions, reports the publication Haaretz.
The State Prosecutor’s Office revealed Tuesday it was considering an indictment against Cal Israel Credit Cards and six businesspeople, including Cal’s former CEO Boaz Chechik.
The six are being summonsed for a final hearing which will determine whether prosecutors should issue indictments for allegedly facilitating transactions in online gambling and other illicit activity involving billions of shekels, the State Prosecutor’s Office’s economics division said in a public statement.
“Cal itself as well as its former CEO Boaz Chechik and former vice president Steve Greenspan are suspected of aggravated fraud, false entries in corporate documents, bribery and violations of the Prohibition on Money Laundering Law,” the office said.
The Bank of Israel’s banks supervisor, David Zaken, has ordered Cal to cease any dividend payments out of concern that the company may be liable for severe financial penalties.
Cal, which issues Visa, MasterCard and Diners Club in Israel, is 72% owned by Israel Discount Bank and 28% by First International Bank of Israel.
If an indictment is issued against Cal it will, Haaretz reports, be the first ever against a major financial institution in Israel.
Cal said it was studying the prosecutors’ statement and declined further comment for now. A spokesman said: “We believe that the prosecutor, after studying the matter in context, will accept our view and decide against filing an indictment against the company.”
The national police’s 433 Unit, which began investigating the affair in December 2011, alleges that the fraud and other violations occurred in two areas.
In the first, between 2006 and 2009, Cal and the six executives cited by prosecutors defrauded the international credit card issuers MasterCard and Visa by fraudulently offering credit card clearance services to online gambling businesses.
Investigators say the business became so big that in 2008 the company formed a new unit – Cal International – to handle it.
“It is suspected that as of 2007 the two companies processed payments for gambling sites (including USA gamblers) by false coding, classifying them as supposedly legitimate business activities, approving businesses as customers without proper identification procedures and other fraudulent activities,” the state prosecutor’s economics division said.
In the second area, prosecutors believe that Chechik and associate Albert Alhadaf, helped by Greenspan, took bribes from Canadian businessman Nathan Jacobson, who engaged in online payment processing through a company called Paygea.
Police allege that in exchange for providing Cal services to Paygea, Alhadaf was given a controlling stake in the company and a share in the profits. Paygea cleared credit card payments for online sales of products and services.
Haaretz reports that there are allegations that Chechik and Greenspan developed a sophisticated system for covering up the transactions and high cancellation levels from the international credit card issuers, and intimidated Cal employees into cooperating. Four of the company’s risk managers quit in protest, it has been claimed.
Let me come right our and say what you won’t tell
This ran as a full page ad in yesterdays The Washington Post. Everyone should read it and consider it, it should be a major point in the coming election, it should be but it wont.
Bestselling author Don Winslow, whose new novel ‘The Cartel’ is now available,’ on how the only way to win the trillion-dollar War on Drugs is to stop fighting. This piece is also running as a paid ad by Winslow in today’s print edition of The Washington Post.
the American people. The War on Drugs is unwinnable.
It was unwinnable for Nixon, Ford, Carter, Reagan,
Bush, Clinton, Bush, and now Obama. At forty-four years,
it’s America’s longest war and there’s no end in sight.The people who benefit most from the War on Drugs are the traffickers. Every dollar we spend on drugs and every dollar we spend trying to interdict them raises the profits of the Mexican cartels and makes them more powerful.
So in the very act of fighting this war, we lose it.
Cops standing in front of big drug seizures look great on the evening news. But it sells a lie that we’re winning, just like George Bush on an aircraft carrier declaring that a war was over that still rages on today.
It’s not only that we can’t win this war, it’s that we’re destroying ourselves fighting it. We are literally addicted to the War on Drugs. A half-century of failed policy, $1 trillion, and 45 million arrests has not reduced daily drug use—at all. The U.S. still leads the world in illegal drug consumption, drugs are cheaper, more available, and more potent than ever before.
Our justice system is a junkie, demanding its daily fix of arrests, seizures and convictions. It needs drugs. It’s as hooked as that guy sticking a needle into his arm even though he knows it’s killing him.
Towns that used to compete for factories now campaign for penitentiaries because caging our citizens has become big business. Prison privatization—corrections as capitalism—has increased 1600 percent between 1990 and 2010.
More African-American men are in prison or in the “system” today than there were slaves in 1850. And you don’t just throw an individual behind bars, you throw his or her whole family. Almost 3 million kids have a parent in jail on a drug charge, and they’re more likely to be on welfare, drop out of school, go out on the corner and sell drugs to start the whole tragic cycle all over again. Drugs begin the destruction of families and the justice system finishes them off.
Throughout its history, the War on Drugs has disproportionally impacted minorities—it is a war on people, specifically communities of color. “Right now we have the worst of both worlds. In vast blocks of cities, the only incomes come from the government or from drugs.” That was Bill Clinton in 1992, and 23 years later nothing has changed.
The Cato Institute estimates that legalizing all drugs would save the country $41 billion a year. Taxing drugs at the same rate that we tax alcohol and tobacco… would yield $46 billion in tax revenues.
Police departments have become occupying armies. We can draw a direct line between the War on Drugs and the recent events in Ferguson, Cleveland, Baltimore, and elsewhere.
The militarization of our police departments began with the reaction to the crack epidemic of the 1980s. Heavily armed SWAT teams battering down doors in the middle of the night, arresting thousands of young men, have turned American neighborhoods into war zones and spawned a hostile and deadly relationship with our inner city communities.
Proof that this militarization isn’t working is its escalation: In 1972 there were a few hundred paramilitary drug raids; 1980 saw 3,000; 2001 had 40,000; and last year that doubled to 80,000. Of course, if the raids were working, there’d be fewer of them, not more.
The War on Drugs isn’t just a failure, it’s a disaster.
U.S. drug policy works great—for the Mexican cartels.
Your votes have consequences: In 1994 you voted in NAFTA, the North American Free Trade Agreement, which DEA agents on the front line call the North American Free Drug Trade Agreement. So while you were passing severe laws against drug possession at home, you were enabling thousands of trailer trucks of dope to come across the border and flood our cities.
Our drug policy toward Mexico has been so bad that former President Clinton apologized to the Mexican people in February of this year, saying, “I wish you had no narco-trafficking, but it’s not really your fault. Basically, we did too good of a job taking the transportation out of the air and water, and so we ran it over land. I apologize for that.”
It’s not the “Mexican Drug Problem.” It’s the American Drug Problem. It’s simple: No buyer, no seller. We fund the killing, fuel the killing, and sustain the killing. As a result, 100,000 people in Mexico are dead just since 2006.
You’re so concerned about terrorists thousands of miles away that you don’t see the terrorists just across our border. The cartels are more sophisticated and wealthier than the jihadists and already have a presence in 230 American cities. The cartels were running the ISIS playbook—decapitations, immolations, videos, social media—ten years ago.
Many of you keep talking about building a wall that stretches the entire 2,000-mile land border with Mexico. It doesn’t matter how high a wall you build if the traffickers can tunnel under it. You’ve read about these tunnels, with railroad tracks, air-conditioning, elevators, and dormitories. Now drug traffickers use them, but how long will it be before terrorists figure out that this is a way to get into our country? Those tunnels only exist because drugs are illegal. Your “tough on crime” stance makes us soft on security.
We never learn.
Since 2005, Congress has spent $2.5 billion on the Merida Initiative, providing weapons, helicopters, fixed-wing aircraft, surveillance technology, and especially training to Mexican counter-drug agencies. But DEA agents in the field regularly report that these agencies have criminal connections to the cartels, even serving as their armed forces, and have been involved in the massacres of innocent civilians. We are funding our own drug epidemic.
Our Mexico strategy is such a complete failure that during Operation Fast and Furious, the ATF violated the very federal laws it was created to enforce, facilitating arms smuggling to drug traffickers in an effort to trace them. The ATF lost track of the automatic rifles that were then used to murder Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry. Mexican ambassador to the U.S. Arturo Sarukhan said, “The thinking that you can let guns walk across the border and maintain operational control of those weapons is really an outstanding lack of understanding of how these criminal organizations are operating on both sides of our common borders.”
In Afghanistan, Congress authorized $108 million to “incentivize” provinces to reduce poppy cultivation. Instead, they built irrigation systems to water the poppies. So far, you’ve spent $7.6 billion to fight the drug war in Afghanistan, and opium production there has tripled.
We should be using our resources to fix our crumbling schools, create jobs, and fund drug treatment. Because interdiction increases supply while education reduces demand.
Education is cheaper than incarceration. Keeping someone in a classroom costs one quarter of what it costs to keep him in a cell. But, thanks to the War on Drugs, America is home to the largest prison population in the history of the planet.
You know how we got to this point.
At the height of the drug war hysteria, and desperate to appear tough on crime, Congress overreacted and passed insanely over-the-top laws forcing judges to put nonviolent drug offenders into prison for mandatory terms of 15 years to life.
The prison population exploded. Now we have 5 percent of the world’s people but 25 percent of the world’s convicts. That’s 2.3 million Americans behind bars, half of them on drug-related offenses.
Eric Sterling, a lawyer and one of the architects of the 1986 federal sentencing laws, later wrote that they were a terrible mistake, “among the most reviled Acts of Congress in recent years.” U.S. District Judge Mark Bennett says that he feels guilt and sorrow when he has to sentence nonviolent drug offenders to long mandatory terms and tells them, “My hands are tied…I’m sorry. This isn’t up to me.”
We cannot incarcerate our way out of this problem.
We’ve failed. And both sides of the aisle agree: President Obama, April 2015: “I am a very strong believer that the path that we have taken in the United States in the so-called ‘war on drugs’ has been so heavy in emphasizing incarceration that it has been counterproductive.” Governor Chris Christie, June 7, 2015: “I think quite frankly the war on drugs has been a failure.”
Three-quarters of American voters today agree with them.
In a May 2014 drug raid with a “no-knock” warrant, a Georgia SWAT team threw a flash bang grenade into a baby’s playpen. That one-year-old child, Bounkham Phonesavanh, suffered critical burns. David Simon has said, “Probable cause was destroyed by the drug war.” We torched our civil rights, and now we burn babies along with them.
That’s not who we are. At least that’s not who we should be.
The Cato Institute estimates that legalizing all drugs would save the country $41 billion a year. Taxing drugs at the same rate that we tax alcohol and tobacco (by far the biggest killers among drugs), would yield $46 billion in tax revenues.
With that kind of money, you could shrink the deficit, grow the economy, create businesses in inner cities, provide treatment for addicts—things that might actually do something about the drug problem.
Appearing tough on crime is not the same as being tough on crime. Being tough on crime means making some hard decisions.
We need to stop thinking about how to fight this war better, but how not to fight it at all.
We need leadership and legislation. We need Congress to have the courage to step up and say not that the system is broken and in need of repair, but that in 1971 we made a colossal trillion-dollar mistake that has destroyed this country, and it has to stop.
How much more money do we have to waste, how many more families have to be destroyed, how many more people have to be killed before you summon the courage to tell the truth to the American people?
The War on Drugs is not only futile, it is wrong.
The answer is legalization.
The only way to win is to stop fighting.
Don Winslow is the bestselling author of Savages, which he adapted into a feature film directed by Oliver Stone. His new novel about the War on Drugs, The Cartel, is now available.
I talked to Mike yesterday and all things considered, I think he sounds good. He did tell me he doesn’t remember the accident and I was all, “whoa, you DO remember agreeing to co-sign a new car loan for me, though, right?” He also said he was in a lot of pain. Being the compassionate person that I am, I told him he should take a couple more pain pills while I was talking to him and then we could address the whole car loan issue again in about a half hour.
South seemed a little upset about not remembering what happened, but I think not remembering the accident is pretty normal. Probably the body’s way of dealing with the trauma and maybe in time Mike will remember what happened. “…and it was at that exact moment that I swerved to avoid a stripper who had wandered out onto the highway!” But, being the Google queen that I am I could not rest until I found out why this memory loss occurs, and I found this article on memory and trauma, which seems to make a lot of sense when you think about it. And it’s on the internet so it has to be true, right?
I also talked to Mike’s mom yesterday—she’s THE BEST!!!–and she said Mike told her he is making himself get up and move around, which is great because there’s an elevated risk of blood clots after surgery so moving is super important.
After I hung up, I thought, “Crap. I forgot to ask South about the Confederate flag flap.” Get yourself some Dragon Naturally Speaking software from Amazon, South, and start dictating those columns. Only costs about $100—oh, should I add that to the GoFundMe total? In that case, only costs about $600.
But seriously, writing will keep your mind off your pain. After my surgery, I kept a journal and I wrote in it every day. Sure, the majority of the entries were “why do I feel like someone is trying to shove their fist up my butt?” but it allowed me to focus on something other than the pain. This is actually an important time for you. Your body is forcing you to slow down and be in the moment. It allows for personal introspection that might normally go unnoticed. I realized, for instance, that I had a lot of regrets about the things I’ve never done in life. And the minute I got better, I went right back to not doing them.
Now here are some column ideas for you in case the pain meds are scrambling your brain: why fluoride in our water is fucking bullshit, why mandatory vaccines are fucking bullshit and just HOTT Channing Tatum is in that new Magic Mike video. That last one isn’t a column idea, it’s what I’m masturbating to while I’m dictating this column. The true definition of multitasking.
As for the Confederate flag controversy, I want you to know that I am against them taking down the flag. Unless I’m for it. In which case, I’m definitely undecided.
South reiterated to me what he wrote here yesterday that all your emails and well wishes made him feel really good so keep ’em coming! Not many people know this, but Mike really likes…..kittens. So here’s a picture of a kitten who has a shoulder owie, too.
Course this kitten isn’t flying high on pain meds, he’s guttin’ it out the natural way…….just sayin’.
It occurred to me that if every chick South ever had sex with donated just one dollar to his GoFundMe page, he could pay off his medical bills and probably have enough money left over to retire from….from….what the hell does South even do these days to make money? Gawd, I’m so out of the loop it isn’t even funny. I don’t even know if he’s still cranking out movies!
Now if you’ll excuse me, I need to see a car sales man about a 2015 deep blue Mustang with one of those way cool galloping horse decals along the side…
Bear with me yall i can only use one hand to type. As much as there is to talk about (the sumpreme court got it right!) and as selfish as it is i mostly wanna talk about….me.
Thank God for opiates. I have dealt with some painful things, my spinal surgery for example..a broken tibia also but those are just scrapes by comparision. The main things are the broken ribs…all but one on my left side, the broken shoulder blade and the broken collar bone. They did surgery on the collarbone yesterday…it was 2 hrs. Any one of these things is painful by itself…all of them at once…i wouldnt even wish that on donkey long.
They tell me i have a long recovery ahead…months. I just hope the chronic persistent pain eases up in the 4 to 6 weeks they say.
heres what i remember…I was riding my motorcycle on a 2 lane road in rural GA on Sunday it was fathers day and i was going to my dads. I remember riding pleasantly about 45mph. The next memory i have in of paramedics putting me in an ambulance. Theres nothing in between and that bothers me. I dont know if i tried to avoid something or just blacked out or what.
I was in Athens regional hospital till last night. now i am with a family member till i can manage on my own.
I appreciate all the kindness that i have been shown by all of you. It means a lot to get a lot of well wishes and offers to help. I must also say it is wonderful to have Goddess back writing here and i have deep appreciation for her “stepping up”
God bless you all and thank you for allowing me into your lives. I will try not to make the next update all about me…after all thgese are historic times.
We all experience those pivotal events in our lives when we get bad news.Time seems to stand still and things seem to move in slow motion. The sights, sounds and smells are seared into our brains forever. Years from now we might hear a song that was playing at that moment or recall a fragrance we smelled and we’re right back in that horrible moment…
So there I was sitting on the couch in my underwear eating raw chocolate chip cookie dough while watching Xander trying to bake Eric and Nicole alive in a heating duct on Days of Our Lives, when I realized there was some kind of Confederate flag flap going on in the country. Being a Northerner, or as Mike’s mom calls me a “Yankee,” I completely ignored it. If it ain’t happening in my backyard, I don’t give a shit. And if it is happening in my backyard, someones going to experience the joys of my .22. But I kept hearing and hearing about this flag brouhaha and I figured if anybody was going to jaw about it, it was going to be South. Come on, this topic is tailor made for him. Confederate? South? Brouhaha? It’s got Mike’s name written all over it.
I zipped over to his page so he could tell me how I feel about this situation and BAM! I’m hit with the news that my former stalkee has had an accident on his bike. (Don’t judge, people. How many of us have fallen off of our bikes after we forgot to put the kickstand down? Sure, most of us were five or six at the time, but still.) Of course, my immediate thought was, “OMG! I told him not to take those damn training wheels off! But did the dumbass listen? NO.”
Upon hearing news of South’s accident my life was changed forever. (Not really, I continued watching Nicole and Eric sucking face in the heating duct, but it sounds so much more dramatic, so let’s go with it.) I knew I had to rally the forces and do something to make South feel better so I set up a GoFundMe page to raise enough money to buy him a new bike. I can picture it all in my head, South will come home from the hospital and it’ll be on his front stoop all shiny and pretty with a big ole bow on it. He’ll shed a few tears, talk about how wonderful his readers are and it’ll give him fodder for a new post.
This is the bike I’ve picked out. That’s right, only the best for Mike.
I insisted they put the basket on the front so Mike can carry his fried chicken and sweet tea with him when he’s out for a ride. Now I’ve tallied the expenses for this effort–my two thousand dollar monthly mortgage payment for this dump so I have a place to live while I take charge of South’s GoFundMe account, money for my new laptop so I can monitor the money coming into South’s GoFundMe account, braces for Female Offspring #8 so I don’t have to listen to her incessant lisping while I monitor South’s GoFundMe account, toss in a little spending money for South—and it came to $4825.00. Oh, and let’s not forget South’s brand spanking new bike, so add another $29.99 to that figure for the total. South is counting on YOU, his faithful readers, to open your wallets and finance my future…and that dumb bike of his.
Now every time I hear “these are the Days of Our Lives,” I’m going to think about how delicious raw chocolate chip cookie dough is. And don’t talk to me about salmonella. Guys worry about that bullshit. I’ve never seen “she died from ingesting raw cookie dough” on a woman’s tombstone yet. Oh, we may get violently ill and vomit for hours, but we don’t die! Oh, yeah, and I’ll think about South’s bike accident, too. Whatever.
All kidding aside, GET WELL SOON, MIKE, WE LOVE YA!!!
Mike’s mom said he had a procedure done at this hospital today but due to strict HIPAA laws, I can’t say exactly what that was. Let’s just say it rhymes with “he had his BOULDER operated on”….she said he’s doing well!!
I just got a laptop Here (thanks Frank!) I will update more tonight. short of it is i had a wreck on my bike Sunday and broke my shoulder, my collar bone and all my ribs on the left side. PS Idont have my phone, if you wish to reach me email email@example.com
I. An Inverted World
“For all intents and purposes, I am a woman.”
With these words, on April 24, 2015, former Olympic winner William Bruce Jenner announced his attempt to become a female during a television interview with Diane Sawyer that attracted nearly 20 million viewers. After the broadcast of the interview, I began to scan through comments posted on various message boards to find out and measure the public reaction. I mainly focused on reviewing comments that were posted on mainstream media web sites such as ABC, CNN, MSNBC, Fox, etc. Two thirds of comments were negative, expressions of anger, confusion, disgust, hatred and distrust. Immediately conspiracy theories were starting to form, some were speculating that Jenner has been put under some kind of mind control, some were saying that Jenner may have been possessed by demonic/extraterrestrial forces, others were calling Jenner an attention seeking opportunistic charlatan who is carrying a publicity stunt, and finally there were those who believed Jenner is going through a severe mental crisis and has gone mad. In general, the reaction was negative, hateful and suspicious. In the days that followed, rumors indicated that Jenner is well aware of being hated by the public, hence he stays indoor most of the times and is nervous and volatile. Apparently, the superficial endorsement from Jenner’s family and fraudulent media reports of public support was not enough to convince him. After all, Mr. Jenner may have gone mad, but he’s not a fool nonetheless.
Speaking of medial lies, one day after the broadcast of the interview, I checked mainstream media outlets to see how they were reporting on the public reaction, and not surprisingly saw how they were lying blatantly and shamelessly. They ignored most of negative comments that were posted on their own message boards and instead, focused on a few supportive and sympathetic celebrity tweets in an attempt to depict a positive picture of a negative event. For instance this headline from CNN caught my attention:
“Reaction to Bruce Jenner Interview: Love”
Nothing could be further from the truth, but then again, nothing else can be expected from a media that is being bought and sold a long time ago. This subversive attempt at destroying reality is the manifestation of George Orwell’s disturbing predictions. In his book 1984, Orwell depicted a society in which rationale, individual rights, freedom of speech and private ownership are abolished, and the blinded, delusional and shallow populace sleep walks through the motions and accepts whatever lies, disinformation and propaganda that the totalitarian system feeds to them:
“War is peace. Freedom is slavery. Ignorance is strength.”
Today, we are at war with an evil establishment which is pushing us towards that dark utopia. The powers that be use whatever means they deem necessary, from polluting the environment with toxic chemicals to brain washing children in schools, falsifying scientific data, spreading disinformation through the media and using celebrities to promote and further their agendas and nothing is off the table. We have no choice expect to fight back by standing united and vigilant, sharing the information and exposing the truth. In this instant, celebrity Bruce Jenner in particular and transgender people in general have become tools used by the establishment to implement a malevolent social engineering agenda, and the truth about their agenda must be revealed.
Bruce Jenner is a former athlete who won the gold medal in “The Decathlon” at the 1976 Olympics games held in Montreal, Canada. The Decathlon is a combined event in athletics consisting of ten track and field events that are held over two consecutive days. Contenders must perform a variety of demanding and difficult tasks including high jump, long jump, discus throw, pole vault and javelin throw. Here is the most important part: The Decathlon is contested by male athletes only, because the required tasks are physically and psychologically impossible for a female to carry out. This is a scientific fact which has nothing to do with the social philosophy of gender equality: There are tasks that only men can carry out and there are tasks that only women can carry out, because biological and psychological makeup of men and women are different from one another. A Decathlon contender is different from for example a race driver. In order to compete in the Decathlon games, not only a man must be physically fit, but he must have an extraordinary strong will, determination and self confidence. If he has a shadow of a doubt about his identity, his sexual orientation and his capabilities, he will surely fail in first attempt and will never make it to the finale, let alone winning the competition. The notion that Bruce Jenner competed and won the Decathlon games all the while struggling with a desire to be a woman is absurd, impossible and insane, it’s like saying men and women both can give birth because they both have bellies.
This is the world in which we live in, we need to argue with delusional lunatics, liars and opportunists on why a Decathlon athlete, a symbol of male masculinity and will power, could not have feminine desires all throughout his life. Whatever happened to this man happened in a later period of his life. Perhaps Jenner lost his mind after his marriage to Kris Kardashian and being put through the reality TV freak show “Keeping Up with the Kardashians”. Perhaps he was brain washed and drugged by the powers that be. Perhaps he was abducted by the aliens who experimented on him and switched his brain with the brain of a frog. I don’t know what, when and how went wrong in this man’s life, I don’t know how he fell so far from grace and went from a gold medal carrying champion to a cross-dressing reality TV personality and I don’t care to know. What I do know is that the media is cashing in on his “transformation” story, and the establishment tends to turn him into a role model in an attempt to blur the gender line and further destroy family and traditional values, and we shall not allow them to carry out such agenda.
On June 1, 2015, the media hype shifted into overdrive when Bruce Jenner announced the completion of his transitioning into a woman and revealed his new female name: Caitlyn. Jenner’s picture, dressed in women’s clothing, appeared on the cover of Vanity Fair magazine. Celebrities and media pundits rushed to congratulate him, and even President Barack Hussein Obama saluted him for what he described as “an act of courage”.
Bruce Jenner’s story has received an extraordinary amount of coverage because of his celebrity status, but his case is not an isolated incident, rather, it’s the pivotal point of a growing trend.
II. No Safe Haven
Transgender people make up only 0.3% of US population. In other words, in a country with a population of more than 318,000,000, only about 700,000 identify themselves as transgender, and yet, political and social forces are at work, trying to modify society and change the definition of humanity in an attempt to protect the rights of this miniscule group.
Here is an observation: People living with mental illnesses (i.e. bi-polar disorder, schizophrenia, post- traumatic stress disorder etc.) make up 3.3% of US population, totaling about 7,900,000, more than ten times the transgender population and yet, they don’t get one tenth of attention, support and media coverage that transgender people receive. If this is not a clear example of discrimination and using a minority group to advance a social engineering agenda, then I don’t know what is.
Here is another observation: According to a survey conducted by the lobby group “Human Rights Campaign” that was conducted in 2014, 17% of respondents said they know a transgender person. In 2015, the lobby group conducted another survey. This time, 22% of respondents said they know a transgender person, a 5% increase in one year. This 5% increase is the result of two things: Constant media coverage, and an ongoing social campaign whose goal is to redefine sexual orientation and label as many people as possible transgender including 5 year old children and cross-dressing senior citizens. In other words, the actual population of transgender people has not increased 5% over a span of one year, instead, definition of sexual orientation and public perception have changed. If this is not a clear example of collective mind control, then I don’t know what is.
According to powers that be, the rights of the majority are unimportant, it’s the right of this particular transgender minority that needs to be protected. For instance in a public school or in a gymnasium, if a man claims to be transgender and goes to ladies room, all women are obliged to get along and pretend that he’s a woman, and if any of women refuses to play along, she will be hold accountable and will be labeled “transphobic”. In fact, if someone even states that difference between men and women is that men have penis and women have vagina, he will be attacked and labeled transphobic. That’s what happened to “The Avengers” writer/director Joss Whedon. When the veteran filmmaker was asked to give advice on how to create strong female characters, he replied via Twitter:
“Must have strength but also community and not have peeny/balls.”
After making this comment, Whedon was viciously attacked on the mainstream media and the social network. The following is an excerpt of an article written by an LGBT activist named Nicole:
“Whedon’s joke is cissexist in being based on the joke that “of course women have vaginas” which is transmisogynistic since there are many women who do not. His “joke” insults trans women and intentionally or not promotes misgendering us which leads to discrimination and high levels of violence.”
Let’s reiterate what Nicole is saying: Many women do not have vaginas. If you disagree with this assumption, then you are promoting discrimination and violence. In other words, if you do not support the bizarre, insane and unnatural idea that “many women do not have vaginas”, then you are considered a murderous rapist thug who has to be locked up or worse. This is how the powers that be play the “victim of violence” card to manipulate people’s emotions, justify censorship and push their agenda. This is how the issue of civil rights for a minority of 700,000 overshadows and threatens the rights of a nation of more than 318,000,000. This is how the basic nature of reality and common sense has come under attack in 21st century America, and the crisis is deepening. In the week before Bruce Jenner interview with ABC Network, NBC presented the stories of several sets of parents who have struggled with their young children’s gender confusion and ultimately have decided to support their boys’ desire to be girls, and vise versa. All children were under 10 years of age. CBS, on the other hand, covered the story of a 5 year old girl’s transition into a boy. Meanwhile, the comedy dramatic series “Transparent” won the Golden Globe award for the best television series of 2014. Transparent tells the story of a Los Angeles family whose lives change when they discover their father is a transgender. Then there is “TransAmerica”, a reality series produced for VH1 by former model Tyra Banks. According to Hollywood Reporter:
“The eight episode docuseries chronicles a group of Chicago women united by the shared experience of being transgender. The series is described as an earnest look at a group of millennial women, who happen to be transgender, living, loving and building their careers. The series explores how their sexuality impacts their lives.”
Transgender movement is not limited to the media. It is being implemented in public schools, camps and even religious institutions. In elementary schools, teachers read transgender book “I Am Jazz” to 7 year old children. The autobiographical picture book is based on the life of Jazz Jennings, a transgender teenager who talks about having a “girl’s brain in a boy’s body.” Transgender friendly summer camps for children of all ages are being offered by schools. The Naming Project, a self-proclaimed faith-based organization, offers classes and summer camps for people ages 14-18 to study sex related lessons and learn about transgenderism.
On the legal front, transgender movement has engaged the judicial system in a battle to coerce government and state funded insurance programs (i.e. Medicare, Medicaid) to provide coverage for sex change procedures including surgical operations. Strangely enough, the poster child of this legal crusade is a convicted murderer named Michelle-Lael Norsworthy who at the time of this writing is serving his sentence for second degree murder in a California prison. He claimed to have transgender feelings and convinced prison authorities to administer hormonal drugs to him and Medi-Cal (California version of Medicaid) provided drug coverage for him on tax payer’s expenses for several years. Eventually, he concluded that taking hormonal drugs and growing his hair long will not suffice and became determined to have a surgery and castrate himself, and expects Medi-Cal to pay for his surgical operation, too. When prison authorities rejected his request, he teamed up with a group of civil rights attorneys and filed a law suit against the prison, Medi-Cal and the state of California. The case has been referred to California Supreme Court, and LGBT activists hope if the Supreme Court rules in their favor, they can apply Michelle-Lael Norsworthy’s model to other transgender cases nationwide. Let me put this into perspective: According to the latest surveys, 22% of California residents are homeless, California has the highest number of homeless people in America. Furthermore, 6.3% of its residents are unemployed. The state suffers from a budget deficit that has forced painful cuts to education, housing, food stamp program, etc. In addition, California faces the most severe drought in the past century. At such a time of extreme stress and uncertainty, LGBT lobbyists have the audacity to wage war on behalf of a convicted murderer to force taxpayers to pay for his sex change surgery so that he can live out his fantasy of being a woman behind bars.
It all brings us to a fundamental question: What does science say about transgenderism, and what is the truth?
III. The Truth About Transgenderism
According to mainstream science, gender confusion, the main cause of transgenderism, is a genetic, permanent condition that some are born with, and upbringing, education, environment and life experiences have little or no effect. This may be true about a small percentage of transgender people, those who are born with hormonal anomalies. Those people usually begin to develop features of opposite sex when they reach puberty, for example a teenage boy who begins to develop female breasts. In those cases, hormonal therapy and eventually sex change surgery are recommended and reasonable treatments. However, assuming a 5 year old child who has not even develop sexual features is transgender because he likes to play with his sister’s toys is wrong and unfair to the child, it robs him from his identity and free choice and enslaves him to the will of his parents and instructors. By the same token, when the 65 year old Decathlon champion who had married three times and has six biological children comes forward and claims to be a woman, we must realize that either he’s lying or he suffers from mental illness and delusional thinking, and refuse to encourage him and not promote this irrational, reckless and selfish behavior.
A large portion of transgender people don’t suffer from hormonal anomalies, rather, they suffer from mental illness, delusional thinking and identity crisis. That’s why hormonal therapy and sex change surgery are not suitable treatments for them. On the contrary, sex change treatment can be an expensive and devastating procedure which according to several independent scientific studies increases risks of severe depression and suicide. Paul R. McHugh, M.D., former psychiatrist-in-chief at Johns Hopkins Hospital, stated:
“It is biologically impossible for a person to change the sex they were born with, and those who advocate sexual reassignment surgery are thus promoting mental illness.”
In an article published in The Wall Street Journal, McHugh, who is Hopkins’ Distinguished Service Professor of Psychiatry, refers to a long-term Swedish study that followed several transgender persons for 30 years:
“Beginning about 10 years after having the surgery, the transgender person began to experience increasing mental difficulties. Most shockingly, their suicide mortality rose almost 20-fold above the comparable non-transgender population.”
In another part of the article, McHugh discusses transgender children:
“When children who reported transgender feelings were tracked without medical or surgical treatment at both Vanderbilt University and London’s Portman Clinic, 70%-80% of them spontaneously lost those feelings.”
Walt Heyer is an example of how accurate McHugh is in his assertion. Heyer changed his sex from male to female and then back to male after experiencing regret. He then conducted a research to discover if he was an isolated case of misdiagnosis, and found out that he wasn’t. After writing several books on the topic, Heyer concluded:
“Sex change surgery will not fix the underlying delusional psychological behavior that caused the request for surgery.”
At the time of this writing, Walt Heyer operates the web site SexChangeRegret.com where he chronicles his transition experience, publishes his ongoing research and collects testimonies of many transgender persons who have gone through sex change procedure and have come to regret it.
“Sex Changes Are Not Effective, Say Researchers” is the title of an article published in The Guardian. The following is an excerpt of the article:
“There is no conclusive evidence that sex change operations improve the lives of transgender people, with many remaining severely depressed and even suicidal after the operation.”
Unbiased and unprejudiced scientific research reveals that gender confusion, mainly among children, is a form of mental disorder, often temporary in nature, and once the child grows and reaches puberty, those thoughts and feelings will be adjusted and there is no need for adult intervention. Moreover, data and evidence indicates that most transgender suicides occur After sex change procedure, not Before. This crucial fact throws water on LGBT strategy of playing “the suicide card”, a strategy they commonly deploy to support their crusade, emotionally manipulate the populace, and justify the need for acts like adult intervention in children’s lives.
“John is a five year old boy who plays with his sister’s toys, hence John is a transgender child and needs intervention, otherwise later in life, he will become depressed and may commit suicide. In order to prevent John from harming himself in the future, he must begin transgender treatment, take hormonal drugs, go through sex change surgery, get castrated and eventually transform into Jane.”
This is not synopsis of a psychological horror movie, this is what LGBT advocates preach to parents on a daily basis. Not surprisingly, unbiased and unprejudiced scientific researches such as the long-term Swedish study mentioned in McHugh’s article are rare and unpopular, because the LGBT movement and the economical, political and social establishment that supports the LGBT movement view such researches as threat to their dominance and profit. For instance pharmaceutical corporations have some of the most powerful and influential lobby groups at their disposal. Every year, they make billions of dollars in profit from sales of hormonal drugs which play an essential role in sex change procedure. A patient must take these highly expensive drugs for several years before they get to the surgery phase, and if for any reason (i.e. financial stress) the patient stops taking drugs, interrupted treatment causes severe chemical and hormonal complications.
The powers that be don’t want the populace to know the truth and make informed decisions. They aim to keep the populace bewildered, down and subjugated. To achieve this objective, they use any necessary means, one of which is promoting and glorifying gender confusion. More than ever, we need to be aware and remain vigilant. The old saying goes:
“When all else fails, listen to your conscience.”
My buddy Troy texted me yesterday and said … Dude with all this Rachel Dolezal hopla going on, all I can picture is you in your 100% Negro T-Shirt. You were the first transracial person I ever knew of. You were years ahead of the times!

As I mentioned this weekend MindGeek is going to make Pirates 3. It’s interesting that anyone who knows much of anything about it seems to be under a non disclosure agreement. but there are people inside Manwin who know things…..and they tell me.
The most interesting thing to come out of this is that according to Manwin/MindGeek they have purchased Adam and Eves claim on the Pirates franchise. Where did they get the money? Glad you asked…non other than Theo Sapoutzis, owner of AVN has “put together” a few “Greek Investors”.
Now y’all wanna tell me again how Theo isn’t a Manwin/MindGeek puppet? Remember this the next time you sign a check with AVN on it.
Some more tidbits…Non of the original females will be in the movie sequel (at least as of now) nor will Evan Stone.
A final side note. When DP originally did Pirates I made the suggestion that maybe instead of a weak porn script they should tell the story of Calico Jack Rackam. There’s plenty of porn material in that story and the movie could be biographical and his story is better than any porn script you could write and it already has the porn in it. For the first part of his story you could watch the Starz original Series “Black Sails” which is actually really good and very accurate. if ya wanna know the rest…well google it…
This hit my email a couple of weeks ago and I have been quietly tracking it. I’m sure it comes as no surprise that porners would want to capitalize on the success of the first two Pirate movies but theres a lot involved. For instance who owns the rights…The first one was a joint venture between Adam and Eve and Digital Playground. DP had the stronger PR so they really got all the credit, something Adam and Eve wasn’t happy about so when part two came around there was some legal wrangling between DP and Adam and Eve over who actually owned it. It never went to court and my sources tell me that Adam and Eve settled for a share of the profits (and no doubt a distribution deal)
Now Manwin/Mindgeek owns everything that was DP, so im sure it won’t come as a surprise to you that they will be involved in the making of Pirates 3. What will come as a shock to many of you is exactly who is behind it financially….that and a LOT more is coming Monday and next week…Stay tuned this is surely gonna rattle some cages….
Age don’t matter she exemplifies what a female in porn should be! We all wish her a happy birthday.
it’s odd to me…. I caught a lot of shit for the article written by Michael Payne. believe me I have no problem with that I can take it as well as I can dish it out. the general thought is that I approved the article and thus I must agree with it. Neither is the case. Someone who has an authors login here as Michael does, can write and post entirely without my knowledge. Others have this ability as well, Goddess, Kayden Kross had it, My friend Dan Patterson and still others would have it simply by expressing an interest in having it.
I like to read things written by people who believe differently than I do, it expands my horizons.
When you read Mr Paynes article it should come as no surprise to you that while it is arguably a minority opinion it is NOT a small minority, of the top three radio talk shows in existence all three of them share his views and they represent a very significant number of people. Rush Limbaughs cume is 13.25 and Sean Hannitys is 12 that means that they have 13.25 million listeners and 12 million listeners respectively. but for Mr limbaugh or Mr Hannity to claim someone has an “agenda” is …well the pot calling the kettle black so to speak.
Indeed this whole thing brings up a dilemma even for me. As libertarian in principle as I am its problematic.
In general I support the right of a business owner to do business with or refuse to do business with anyone he or she chooses. but should there be a line? and who should determine what that line is?
For example if I owned a tobacco shop i think it is ENTIRELY unreasonable for me to have to not allow my customers to smoke in the establishment.
By the same token if I own a restaurant and choose to allow my customers to smoke in my establishment I should be able to post a sign at the door, this is a smoking establishment if you dont like it go someplace else. if my business succeeds then I did something right, if not I did something wrong, but its was ME who did it…not the government. This is in line with Adam Smith’s “Invisible Hand” theory of economics.
It gets a bit fuzzier when it comes to outright discrimination based on sex or religion or whatever.
Consider I am former Georgia governor Lester Maddox and I have a very popular eatery in Atlanta called “The Pickrick“. In my establishment I have chosen NOT to serve black people or as governor Maddox called them “integrationists”. Im my mind the best thing that can happen is that he is perfectly within his rights to do that and that he will fail because people realize how wrong that is and do not wish to support that establishment not matter how good the fried chicken is.
Now in the grand scheme of things does that promote the social harmony and equal rights that the government wants us to? of course not, but then neither does the United Negro College Fund.
The main thing in making people equal is for that equality to apply unilaterally, gay or straight, male or female, white or yellow or red or black, athiest or 7th day adventist, Arab or Isrealie….You get the picture. As long as someone holds themselves forth as different, no matter the intent, it undermines the whole equality thing.
But lets take it to another level, now its not a restaurant but a 24 hour emergency medical center. You own it, you take NO funding from the government, state local or city….do you have a right to refuse a patient? what about one that is dying? Now it’s not so clear is it.
This is a very complex legal issue and personally I dont see it as any sort of agenda as a general rule but it is an issue that has people divided on both sides of it.
I think if you are smart, you read Mr Paynes editorial and you gain some understanding of this and particularly if you oppose it, you understand how YOUR opposition thinks.
One of the more vocal people about this article was Mike Stabile, but when I offered that i would run his opposing view, unedited, he never responded…seems it’s a lot easier to bitch and moan than it is to actually take a stand…
What you should take away is that knowledge is power and knowing what your adversary is up to is very valuable knowledge.
As for me, I’d like to live to see the day when we are all truly equal, and judged by our character not by our color, or sexual preference or which diety we believe in…But I won’t, maybe though some of you will.
O.K. a few of y’all need to learn to read, the editorial yesterday wasn’t mine. people who have permission to post articles here may do so without my moderation, I like to have opinions other than my own to keep it from being boring.
One thing I noticed is when something is here that you support you are all gung ho about it but when the free speech crosses to something you dont like you feel it should be censored….sorry doesnt work that way here because it doesnt work that way for me.
ignoring a popular opinion doesnt cause it to go away what you should do is read it and learn from it….
all that said I have been outdoors and on the ocean a bit lately this photo is out at “The ledge” which is the edge of the continental shelf around the Gulf of Mexico. The phenomenon is a tornado over water…it’s commonly called a “waterspout”
I. New Realities
In 2014, I wrote a series of articles titled “Over the Rainbow”. My goal was to study the ingredients of the global Utopia and find out how homosexuality, transgenderism, transhumanism and multiculturalism are reshaping society and redefining what it means to be human in the 21st century. My conclusion was that there are cultural, economical, political and social forces who are determined to destroy the traditional human model and replace it with a model that is confused, dependent, inept and impotent and yet at the same time, under the hypnotic influence of the media, the social net work, the fashion industry and chemical drugs enjoys the enslavement. In order to achieve their objective, the powers that be use various techniques and technologies. One of their techniques is to empower minorities such as homosexuals and transgeners and under the pretense of defending human rights of these minorities, they infiltrate and influence every level of society from elementary schools to scientific academics, the music industry, movie production studios, television networks and government offices and through education, policy and propaganda change personal perceptions and ultimately swing public opinions towards their desired direction. I emphasized on the public opinion about homosexuality as an example. According to Gallup statistics, in 2014, public support for same-sex marriage has reached an all time high of 55%. Approval of gay and lesbian relations increased 19% between 2001 and 2013. I argued this change in public support is in part due to an increase in portraying sympathetic gay and lesbian characters in books, movies, TV shows, video games, etc. In other words, such support is the result of a successful propaganda campaign.
One year after the publication of “Over the Rainbow” series, I decided to resume my study and see where we stand in 2015, and discovered that things have gotten much worse and conditioning is moving in an accelerated pace. For instance, I realized that the LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bi-sexual, Transgender) movement has turned into a dominant social force who rules with an iron fist, gone are the days when only the rich and the famous were being targeted and harassed for speaking their opinion or making a none-LGBT friendly comment. Today, everybody has become a target of this tyrannical movement. Read some of news headlines of 2015 and see for yourself:
February 19, 2015: 70 year old Washington florist who refused to provide flowers for a gay couple’s wedding was found guilty of violating the state’s anti-discrimination law, and was ordered to pay $1000 in penalty, plus legal fees.
April 1, 2015: Indiana Pizza Place was forced to close doors after refusing to cater gay wedding. LGBT supporters harassed the store owners by threatening phone calls and via the social net work, and told them they will be killed and their store will be burnt to the ground.
April 25, 2015: The Oregon bakers who refused to bake a cake for a gay wedding were fined $135,000 in a state court. The bakers attempted to raise funds to help them pay the court’s penalty without going bankrupt, but GoFundMe (crowd funding web site that allows people to raise money for events ranging from celebrations and graduations to illnesses and financial crises) shut down the support page which was put up by the bakers and cut off their support.
These are new realities of the 21st century America. It gets even stranger when you take into the consideration the fact that gays and lesbians make up only 1.6% of the US population, in other words, in a country with a population of more than 318,000,000, only about 9,000,000 are gay and lesbian. To put this into perspective, the entire US gay and lesbian population is less than the population of Los Angeles. That brings questions to mind such as:
– Why a minuscule group gets treated like a privileged class?
– Why the politicians pass draconian laws to protect the interests of this group and sentence their citizens, including a 70 year old grandmother, to cruel punishment?
– Why the corporate media constantly advocates and supports this group?
– Why the scientific community has kept silenced for several decades and why there has never been a fair, through and unbiased research into the causes and origins of homosexuality?
– Why the society has been forced to accept that nature is the only factor in determining a person’s sexual orientation and nurture, education, environment and life experiences have little or no effect?
I knew I couldn’t rely on the corporate media to find answers, so I began an independent research.
II. Engineering a Revolution
During research I came across some documents that shed light on the evolution of the LGBT movement from an oppressed minority into a totalitarian juggernaut in less than half a century. One of the documents is an article titled “The Homosexual Manifesto: An Essay on the Homosexual Revolution”, a document compiled by gay activist Michael Swift, first published in Gay Community News in February of 1987. This article, reprinted in the Congressional Records, is one of the most crucial doctrines of the LGBT movement. If you wonder why you may have not heard of it before, once you read it, you’ll understand why. The following is an excerpt of The Homosexual Manifesto, I highlighted the most important parts:
“We shall sodomize your sons, emblems of your feeble masculinity, of your shallow dreams and vulgar lies. We shall seduce them in your schools, in your dormitories, in your gymnasiums, in your locker rooms, in your sports arenas, in your seminaries, in your youth groups, in your movie theater bathrooms, in your army bunkhouses, in your truck stops, in your all male clubs, in your houses of Congress, wherever men are with men together. Your sons shall become our minions and do our bidding. They will be recast in our image. They will come to crave and adore us.
All laws banning homosexual activity will be revoked. Instead, legislation shall be passed which engenders love between men. All homosexuals must stand together as brothers, we must be united artistically, philosophically, socially, politically and financially. We will triumph only when we present a common face to the vicious heterosexual enemy.
If you dare to cry faggot, fairy, queer at us, we will stab you in your cowardly hearts and defile your dead, puny bodies.
We shall write poems of the love between men, we shall stage plays in which man openly caresses man, we shall make films about the love between heroic men which will replace the cheap, superficial, sentimental, insipid, juvenile, heterosexual infatuations presently dominating your cinema screens. We shall sculpt statues of beautiful young men, of bold athletes which will be placed in your parks, your squares, your plazas. The museums of the world will be filled only with paintings of graceful, naked lads.
Our writers and artists will make love between men fashionable and de rigueur, and we will succeed because we are adept at setting styles. We will eliminate heterosexual liaisons through usage of the devices of wit and ridicule, devices which we are skilled in employing.
We will unmask the powerful homosexuals who masquerade as heterosexuals. You will be shocked and frightened when you find that your Presidents and their sons, your industrialists, your senators, your mayors, your generals, your athletes, your film stars, your television personalities, your civic leaders, your priests are not the safe, familiar, bourgeois, heterosexual figures you assumed them to be. We are everywhere, we have infiltrated your ranks. Be careful when you speak of homosexuals because we are always among you, we may be sitting across the desk from you, we may be sleeping in the same bed with you.
There will be no compromises. We are not middle-class weaklings. Highly intelligent, we are the natural aristocrats of the human race, and steely-minded aristocrats never settle for less. Those who oppose us will be exiled. We shall raise vast private armies, as Mishima did, to defeat you. We shall conquer the world because warriors inspired by and banded together by homosexual love and honor are invincible as were the ancient Greek soldiers.
The family unit-spawning ground of lies, betrayals, mediocrity, hypocrisy and violence will be abolished. The family unit, which only dampens imagination and curbs free will, must be eliminated. Perfect boys will be conceived and grown in the genetic laboratory. They will be bonded together in communal setting, under the control and instruction of homosexual savants.
All churches who condemn us will be closed. Our only Gods are handsome young men. We adhere to a cult of beauty, moral and esthetic. All that is ugly and vulgar and banal will be annihilated. Since we are alienated from middle-class heterosexual conventions, we are free to live our lives according to the dictates of the pure imagination. For us too much is not enough.
The exquisite society to emerge will be governed by an elite comprised of gay poets. One of the major requirements for a position of power in the new society of homoeroticism will be indulgence in the Greek passion. Any man contaminated with heterosexual lust will be automatically barred from a position of influence. All males who insist on remaining stupidly heterosexual will be tried in homosexual courts of justice and will become invisible men.
We shall rewrite history, history filled and debased with your heterosexual lies and distortions. We shall portray the homosexuality of the great leaders and thinkers who have shaped the world. We will demonstrate that homosexuality and intelligence and imagination are inextricably linked, and that homosexuality is a requirement for true nobility, true beauty in a man.
We shall be victorious because we are fueled with the ferocious bitterness of the oppressed who have been forced to play seemingly bit parts in your dumb, heterosexual shows throughout the ages. We too are capable of firing guns and manning the barricades of the ultimate revolution.
Tremble, hetero swine, when we appear before you without our masks.”
Look at today’s America and see how much of this man’s predictions have come true, look at what’s happening today and see if you can still say there is no such a thing as “Gay Agenda”.
Swift is a bold and out spoken gay activists and strategist, but he’s not alone. Tens of gay activists came together, designed a meticulous plan, and carried it out one step at a time. Understanding the importance of the media in American society, they focused heavily on infiltrating every aspects of the media from Hollywood studios to television networks and news organizations. In the book “After the Ball: How America Will Conquer Its Fear and Hatred of Gays in the 90s” which was published in 1989, gay activists Marshall Kirk and Hunter Madsen laid out a strategy to manipulate America to accept homosexuality by influencing the media. Marshall Kirk was a talented brain researcher while Hunter Madsen was a Harvard-trained expert in public persuasion tactics. They proposed to devise tactics on the American public that were remarkably similar to the brainwashing methods of the Communist China, mixed with Madison Avenue’s most persuasive advertisement techniques. Here is an excerpt of After the Ball:
“We shall use the very processes that made America hate us, to turn their hatred into warm regard, whether they like it or not.
The main thing is talk about gayness until the issue becomes thoroughly tiresome. You can forget about trying right up front to persuade folks that homosexuality is a “good” thing, but if you can get them to think it is just “another” thing, meriting no more than a shrug of the shoulders, then your battle for legal and social rights is virtually won.
The average American watches over seven hours of TV daily. Those hours open up a gateway into the private world of straight people, through which a Trojan Horse might be passed.”
A look at today’s American TV programs reveals how successful this strategy has been in the past two decades. The trend of portraying likeable, sympathetic gay and lesbian characters started with NBC’S sitcom Will & Grace in the late 1990’s, and escalated on a fast pace. At the time of this writing, nearly 30 regular gay and lesbian characters are featured in various shows broadcasted by the major television networks every week.
Another point that Kirk and Madsen emphasized on was portraying gays as victims of circumstance and oppression, not as aggressive challengers:
“Gays must be portrayed as victims in need of protection, so that straight people will be inclined, by reflex, to assume the role of protector.”
In that regard, the 2005 movie Brokeback Mountain and its commercial and critical success played a major role in influencing America’s opinion towards homosexuality. The movie tells the story of two cowboys who fall in love during the 1960’s, and are forced to hide their feelings for one another due to fear of public backlash, and eventually one of them falls victim to the assault of the angry mob. At the time of the release of Brokeback Mountain in 2005, gay marriage was illegal in most states across America and many gays and lesbians were hiding their sexual orientations. At the time of this writing in 2015, gay marriage has become legalized in most states across America, and not only gays and lesbians have came out of closets, but they demand to be praised for their sexual orientation, they demand to have special privileges such as teaching homosexuality related lessons in elementary schools, and with help from the media and the legal system, they mercilessly prosecute, punish and vilify anybody who dares to disagree with their way of life. The tables have truly turned.
Brokeback Mountain is a success story, but it’s not an isolated event. Gays have long had a strong influence in Hollywood, and for several decades, have been affecting the business of making movies in every aspect, sometimes overtly, sometimes covertly. Here is an example of covert gay influence in Hollywood: There is a tradition among the A-list male actors that can be traced back to the 1950’s. This tradition consists of male actors putting on makeup and dressing as women. They do this in different contexts, sometimes the entire plot of a movie revolves around men dressing as women (i.e. Some Like It Hot, Tootsie, Mrs. Doubtfire, etc.), in other occasions, male actors put on dress in comedy sketches in TV programs such as Saturday Night Live, and sometimes they do that for magazine photo sets. Regardless of the context, this tradition has been going on for a long time, and almost 95% of male actors have done this at least once during their career. Actor Dave Chappelle referred to this tradition on several occasions when speaking about what he called “the effeminization of men in Hollywood”, intentionally portraying men in feminine ways. As the story goes, one day during taping his show, Chappelle arrived on the scene and went to his room where he found a dress which had been placed there for him to wear in a comedy sketch. Chappelle refused to wear the dress, and that put him at odds with the studio managers and ultimately he chose to cancel his Comedy Central show and was eventually forced out of the Hollywood mainstream and got pushed to the side. It appears actors don’t have much of a choice, either they must comply with this bizarre and humiliating tradition and put on a dress at least once during their career, or they will be kicked to the curb.
Here is how you can see for yourself: Open any search page, on top of the page, choose “Images”, in search box, type: A-list Actor in Drag, then sit back and watch on your screen the flood of pictures of your favorite actors dressed up as women. Everybody is there, from Sean Connery to Brad Pitt, Johnny Depp, Kevin Spacey, James Franco, and the list goes on and on. Or if you tend to search for a specific actor, type his name and the word “Drag”, for example: George Clooney Drag. When too many actors, over the course of several decades, do the same thing over and over again, it cannot be ruled out as a coincidence. Rather, it seems like some kind of a hazing ritual, and before you wonder what kind of a ritual is this, allow me to explain that hazing rituals are bizarre acts by the nature. For instance let’s consider Skull and Bones. This secret society, founded by drug lord and opium trader William Huntington Russell in 1832 at Yale University in New Haven, Connecticut, has included Presidents, cabinet officers, Supreme Court justices, captains of industry, and often their sons and lately their daughters, a social and political network like no other. 16 American Presidents including George Bush father and son are lifetime members of this secretive cabal that each year only accepts 15 new members. As part of their initiation ceremony, new members wrestle in mud, masturbate naked in a coffin while the old members circle around them and watch them and confess to their sexual desires and perversions before the old members. So before you think it’s strange for an actor to dress as a woman and participate in a hazing ritual, think about this: 16 American Presidents had laid naked in a tomb and masturbated in front of old members of a secretive club.
The question is: Who has established the tradition of cross-dressing in Hollywood, and for what purpose? The ritual may have been invented by some gay Hollywood producers with the intention of humiliating and ridiculing straight men and traditional family values. This is what Michael Swift meant when he wrote:
“We will eliminate heterosexual liaisons through usage of the devices of wit and ridicule, devices which we are skilled in employing.”
All this brings us to a critical question: Why economical, political and social institutions play along and carry out the gay agenda and favor a group of minorities over the rest of society?
III. Partners in Profit
Virtually all power players benefit from the progression of the LGBT movement. Promoting the gay agenda and attracting the masses to homosexuality from an early age will lead to the increase of gay population and consequently decline of traditional family unit and the values that are associated with it. In the eyes of the establishment, family unit, alongside with cultural heritage and private ownership are considered threats to globalization. Hence they will devise any tactic that will result in destabilizing and weakening such threats. Teaching homosexuality related lessons in elementary schools is one of their tactics. In 2015, “And Tango Makes Three” came third in a list of titles the American Library Association had received the most complaints for from parents. The book tells the story of two male penguins who hatched an egg at the New York Zoo, and is being studied at elementary schools. Many parents believe that children should not be exposed to sexually related content at such a young age, and accuse the education system of intentionally promoting a homosexual agenda.
Furthermore, gays are more receptive to lifelong chronic diseases such as HIV that can be managed by taking expensive drugs, and that fact makes them ideal consumers in the eyes of billion dollar pharmaceutical corporations and their powerful lobby groups.
On the other hand, as gay marriage battles intensify in America, civil right attorneys make more money by taking on the states and businesses and individuals. The following is an excerpt from a report published by Reuters on April 16, 2015:
“As a historic constitutional showdown over gay marriage looms this month at the U.S. Supreme Court, attorneys are fighting over another bitterly disputed issue: Their fees.
The battles over billables are erupting far from the Washington, D.C., limelight, in lower courts from West Virginia to Wisconsin and Oklahoma. They pit lawyers representing gay couples who challenged same-sex marriage bans against the states that had enacted the laws.
Typically in the United States, each party pays its own lawyers. But under special laws designed to encourage civil rights cases against the government, parties who win can petition the county, state or other entity they sued for “reasonable” attorneys’ fees and costs.
In some cases, the fee requests run well into seven figures and are submitted on behalf of powerful law firms that a Reuters examination found have outsized access to the Supreme Court. Individuals and advocacy groups that file lawsuits aimed at the high court sometimes retain big-firm lawyers who specialize in arguing in that forum and boast remarkable success rates in getting their cases heard.
Gay marriage litigation, especially, has become a magnet for prominent lawyers and national firms with connections to the Supreme Court. These firms can bill at $1,000 an hour or more, and when they or other Supreme Court experts seek repayment from state coffers at even discounted rates, the rhetoric gets nasty.
“They used a howitzer to kill a gnat.” wrote Tulsa County, Oklahoma, in objecting to a $368,827 fee request in January. The local lawyer for the lesbian couple who brought the case had recruited a team that included a University of Oklahoma constitutional law professor who is a former Supreme Court law clerk and who billed at $400 per hour.”
Certain groups are pushing certain agendas under the pretence of protecting gay rights, but in reality, it comes down to two things: Money and power to control, the most ancient motives in human history. Slowly but steadily, people begin to realize this fact. Slowly and steadily, resistance is building up. Every time someone falls victim to vicious attacks and prosecution of the LGBT movement, support from every corner of America comes pouring in. For instance thousands of people had donated thousands of dollars to the florist, the bakers and the restaurant owners who have been punished for their refusal to cater gay weddings. In April of 2015, a number of activists held a three hour press conference prior to oral arguments at the Supreme Court on the issue of marriage equality. During the conference, activist Matt Barber stated:
“Same-sex marriage and the free exercise of religion, particularly biblical Christianity, cannot coexist in harmony, Christians are being forced to call evil good and good evil. If the current trend continues, we fear soon there will be no room left for any limitation on what can constitute human sexuality. We cannot and will not allow this to occur on our watch.
We were hearing a lot of talk about revolution. Well, revolution is at hand.”
IV. In Closing
I have no intention whatsoever to offend any person or group in any form, shape or manner. I don’t have any personal grudge against gay people, on the contrary, I believe they deserve the same civil and legal rights as heterosexuals. I don’t value people based on their gender or sexual orientation, I value them based on their personal merit. I believe, based on the evidence and proof presented in this article, that the gay agenda is a reality and is being implemented in every aspect of today’s society. However, it’s important to note that there are certain elements such as the LGBT lobby groups within the gay community who pursuit this agenda, and we should not hold all gays responsible for the wrongdoings of a few members of their community.
For the longest time, we’ve heard the argument that gays are born that way and their sexual orientation is the result of their hormone mix-up and elements such as nurture, education, environment and life experiences have little or no effect on determining a person’s sexual orientation. This is the strongest argument offered by gay advocates. In response, anti-gay advocates argue that although the importance of the nature and hormone mix-up cannot be ruled out, but nurture and upbringing also have a fundamental impact on shaping and/or re-shaping a person’s sexuality. They point out to life in prison as an example. Regardless of their nature and hormone mix-up, every man who enters the prison environment will become homosexual, because there is no other option available in prison. That’s a clear, undisputed example of environmental effect on human sexuality. By the same token, when children are being thought homosexuality related lessons in elementary schools, that education will leave a permanent effect on their psyche, will plant the seeds of homosexuality in their subconscious mind, and can and will lead them down a path that they have not chosen by free will. The truth that gay activists may find inconvenient is that both nature and nurture play significant roles in establishing a person’s sexual identity, therefore the children must be kept out of the equation and be allowed to grow up and discover their sexual identity on their own without the adult intervention, without couching and without influence. Teaching sexually related lessons to elementary school children is one of many examples of how the LGBT movement is pushing the gay agenda on the American society, and the American society has started to push back.
We are at a historical tipping point. If the rogue elements within the gay community don’t change their behavior and continue to enforce their agenda and attack, harass, prosecute and punish everybody who doesn’t agree with their sexual orientation and lifestyle, soon there will be conflict, anarchy and violence, and that is bad for the entire society. Even several moderate gay activists have expressed their concern and have warned against dangerous consequences of fascist behavior of their colleagues. The oppressed minority has become the oppressor, the LGBT movement has turned into the same monster it once fought, the monster of bigotry, hatred and intolerance, and this monster must be confronted. Think about it: When a 70 year old religious woman is being prosecuted for her refusal to cater a gay wedding in a country where freedom of religion is a constitutional right, when she is being put on trial for her belief, that’s when you have to acknowledge it has gone too far.
However, I strongly condemn anarchy, violence and oppression of any kind, perpetrated by any party. There is no excuse for the bad behavior. Period. In my view, the only way we can get through this crisis is by engaging in a dialogue, by tolerance and understanding. Gays need to accept the fact that a society is made up of various factions with various beliefs, and they will never gain the approval of all factions and all beliefs, no matter what they do, and by prosecuting a 70 year old woman, not only they won’t gain any support or sympathy, but on the contrary, they will create anger and animosity. When too much anger and animosity build up, it will lead to backlash, repercussion and unforeseen consequences. Tragedy is looming over us, we must put our hands together and prevent that from happening. There is room for all of us, as long as we get along and don’t tread on one another. After all, we’re in this together, this crazy thing called humanity.
