    Children and straight men are being encouraged to explore “gay” and “transgender” sexual identities through “mainstream” pornography, staff members of the pornography giant Aylo, which owns Pornhub, said in undercover interviews.In the latest installment of a series of undercover videos released to social media by reporter Arden Young with investigative journalism outfit Sound Investigations, two top Aylo (formerly Mindgeek) employees said pornography has “educational elements to it,” can help children as young as 12 explore their sexual identity and gender, and that homosexual and transgender pornography is now being pushed to straight men to “convert” them.

    The indictment against Hunter Biden filed in the US Court for the Central District of California this week charges him with evading $1.4 million in taxes owed to the federal government for the years 2016 through 2019. Instead of paying his taxes during these years, he spent $683,000 on prostitutes, $397,000 on clothing, $309,000 on tuition, $237,000 on health & beauty products, $189,000 on porn, $72,000 on rehab, $24,000 on entertainment, $24,000 on sports, $237,000 on miscellaneous, and withdrew $1.6 million in cash from ATMs. Hunter Biden blamed Donald Trump for his troubles, saying "Trump's Russian-aided theft of the 2016...
  • "A Constant State Of Sticker Shock" – Here Is Proof That Inflation In The US Is Wildly Out Of Control: Do you believe the politicians in Washington or do you believe your own eyes?

    Do you believe the politicians in Washington or do you believe your own eyes? The politicians keep telling us that “inflation is low”, but everyone can see that everything sure does cost a lot more than it once did. Our standard of living just keeps going down, and even JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon is admitting that “inflation is hurting people”. But how can inflation be “hurting people” if it is under control? Of course the truth is that it isn’t under control. If the official rate of inflation was still measured using the formula that was in place in...

  • New Mexico AG Raúl Torrez sues Meta over child exploitation, exposing perverts' use of pizza code.

    In a shocking revelation, New Mexico Attorney General Raúl Torrez's letter outlines the distressing findings of an undercover investigation into Meta's platforms. The investigation involved the creation of decoy accounts representing children aged 14 and younger, uncovering disturbing trends: Meta's platforms proactively directed sexually explicit content to underage users, even when the child showed no interest in such material. The platforms enabled adults to easily find, contact, and coerce children into providing explicit images or participating in pornographic videos. The investigation revealed that Meta's platforms recommended children to join unmoderated Facebook groups facilitating commercial sex and allowed the sharing and...

    It is nothing short of amazing to see how far movies have evolved since their earliest days to today. Movies at their earliest inception were state of the art, impressive spectacles that people dressed up for and flocked to see, for a fraction of the cost of attending performance-based arts like plays, concerts, and vaudeville acts. When silent movies came on the scene, the art of storytelling entered a new age, an age that, if done right, would have an impact that would be frozen in time, and become immortalized. Very few films from the silent era have high profile...
  • Berlin Spending 1.5 Million a Day to House Refugees in Just 12 Buildings

    If anyone actually cared about these Africans, the last thing they’d do is bring them over to the most expensive and overcrowded cities on earth, where every single item and service costs more than almost anywhere else, and instead try to help them where they are, or as close as possible to where they are. You could build a proper brick and mortar house for every official refugee (real or not) on earth with just the money Germany spent on housing them in the past couple of years.

    This two part series in the Washington Post is a must read because of what it tells the reader about the abysmal performance of the White House and the Department of Defense. I found it genuinely shocking. I knew that Biden, Austin and Milley were bad. I just did not appreciate how bad. On a scale of 1 to 10, with a 10 marking the biggest fuck up in history, these guys rate an 11. Part two, In Ukraine, a war of incremental gains as counteroffensive stalls, pushes the false narrative that what is happening on the ground in Ukraine...
  • China’s economy at a critical juncture: Q3 growth at 4.9%, Real Estate Market down 81% (2021-2022) and 64% (2023), Shanghai Composite tests 20-year ‘Fate Line.’

    12/08/2023 4:05:29 PM PST · by davikkm · 19 replies
    China’s economy is teetering at a “critical stage,” expanding a modest 4.9% in Q3, below the five percent target. The aftermath of draconian Covid measures persists despite their removal in 2022. Surprisingly, an economic model reliant on debt-fueled construction faces challenges. Ghost cities, idle airports, and vacant skyscrapers showcase the limitations of this approach. China’s Real Estate Market endured significant setbacks, with an 81% drawdown in 2021-2022 and an additional 64% in 2023.
  • 1975: Isobel Lobato, wife of East Timor’s Prime Minister

    12/08/2023 3:06:59 PM PST · by CheshireTheCat · 4 replies ^ | December 8th, 2014 | Headsman
    On this date in 1975, the wife of East Timor’s Prime Minister was publicly executed on the docks of her conquered country’s capital. By the happenstances of colonial expansion, East Timor, a 15,000-square kilometer half-island in the Lesser Sundas, chanced to have the Portuguese flag planted on its soil instead of (as characterized the rest of its surrounding Indonesian archipelago) the Dutch. Because of this, Timor-Leste did not walk the same path trod by Indonesia: it did not share in Indonesia’s 1945 revolution breaking away from the Netherlands, nor in the 1965 coup d’etat that put the Suharto military dictatorship...

  • UPenn President Lights Special ‘Please Don’t Pull That $100 Million Donation’ Menorah

    PHILADELPHIA, PA — To quiet controversy surrounding statements made about Jewish students facing antisemitism on campus, UPenn President Liz Magill announced the start of a new school tradition where she will hold a ceremony to light the "Please Don't Pull That $100 Million Donation" Menorah. "We totally love us some Jews," Macgill said in a statement announcing the ceremony. "We're not sure where everyone got the idea that we are comfortable with open antisemitism and threats of hostility toward Jewish members of our student body, or that there could ever be any context in which calling for the genocide of...

    Illinois Review ^ | December 7, AD 2023 | John F Di Leo
    On Wednesday, December 6, 2023, the United States House of Representatives passed the CARS Act, which would defend American auto manufacturers, workers, and consumers from an unconstitutionally over-regulatory U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the many other related federal efforts to effectively ban normal petroleum-powered vehicles. Passing the House isn’t enough, of course. Like any other bill, it must pass the U.S. Senate and be signed into law – or override a veto – in order to go into effect. But it’s still worthwhile because bills like this one force politicians to go on the record, providing a legitimate campaign...
  • Consumer Crunch: Americans Struggle as Credit Card Delinquency Soars and Inflation Takes a Toll

    12/08/2023 11:32:45 AM PST · by davikkm · 15 replies
    In a stark reality check, Bloomberg reports that the economic optimism touted by some is falling flat for many American households. The sentiment of being worse off isn’t just a feeling; it’s a harsh truth. According to the Daily Rampart from @ftschuyler, Credit Card Delinquency levels have doubled since the COVID lows, painting a concerning picture of financial strain. As inflation runs rampant, the impact is palpable even in everyday expenses. A snapshot of what $70 gets you at Walmart is a testament to the escalating costs that consumers are grappling with, highlighting the stark reality of today’s economic landscape.

    We are in the house latitudes. Despite declining mortgage rates, the University of Michigan Consumer Sentiment Index Buying Conditions for Housing fell to 44. Why are buying conditions for houses so low? Well, mortgage rates, despite coming down recently, are still up 151% under Clueless Joe. And home prices are up 33.2% under Biden. So much for affordable housing for those renting. Like the great Shoeles Joe Jackson on ChiSox and Cleveland Indian fame, Clueless Joe Biden cheated too. Except that Shoeless Joe was accused of accepting $5,000 to throw the World Series in 1919. Clueless Joe Biden and family...

    By the year 2025, communist China plans to unleash large number of humanoid robots, meaning robots that look and act like people but are just walking computers and circuitry. In a race with Elon Musk’s Tesla and other Western companies working on similar technologies, China hopes to start mass producing its version of humanoid robots by 2025. According to banking giant Goldman Sachs, the market for humanoid robots could reach $150 billion per year in just 15 years. Fully operational humanoid robots are expected to be mass produced and working in factories between 2025 and 2028, and later in other...
