Diet members to visit China in early May

Members of a suprapartisan group of Japanese lawmakers are set to visit China for three days from May 4.

The plan was reported to Wednesday’s general meeting of the group, which works to promote the friendship between Japan and China.

The parliamentarians’ league, headed by Masahiko Komura, vice president of the ruling Liberal Democratic Party, annually sends a mission to China, during the Golden Week holiday period between late April and early May.

Last year, Komura and other members, including Kazuo Kitagawa, deputy leader of Komeito, the LDP’s coalition partner, and Katsuya Okada, head of the largest opposition force, the Democratic Party of Japan, made a visit.

This year’s mission will likely be made up of around 10 lawmakers.

At the general meeting, Komura said that the relationship between the two countries has started improving gradually.

Chinese Ambassador to Japan Cheng Yonghua, who also attended the meeting, welcomed recent moves toward fence-mending and said that this year marks the 70th anniversary of the end of World War II and will thus be a good opportunity for Japan.

Cheng also said he hopes that Japan will face history squarely, express its sincere regret over its wartime acts and continue pursuing the path of peaceful development.

China says will clean up smog for 2022 Olympics

Leaders of Beijing’s bid for the 2022 Winter Olympics say the capital’s notorious air pollution will be much improved by the time of the games.

The vice president of the bid committee, Zhang Jiandong, told reporters on Wednesday that air quality at the rural sites for the skiing and sliding events was already very good.

Mr Zhang said Beijing’s urban centre expects a 25 percent reduction in the very small and extremely unhealthy PM2.5 pollutants under a five-year plan begun in 2013 to close coal-fired power plants and other major polluters.

#Blacklivesmatter Detroit police discover bodies of 2 children in freezer

Police in Detroit made a gruesome discovery Tuesday.

A bailiff performing an eviction on a home on the east side of Detroit called 911 after discovering the body of a female child inside a freezer. While investigating the body, authorities found a second body, a male, according to a release from the Detroit Police Department.

A baliff serving an eviction made the initial discovery of two bodies found in a freezer.

EXPAND IMAGE

Both bodies were inside a plastic bag, Detroit Police Chief James Craig said.

There are tentative plans to begin the autopsy tomorrow said Ryan Bridges, spokesman for the Wayne County Medical Examiner’s Office. He added that the office was waiting to allow the bodies to thaw naturally in order to preserve forensic evidence.

The mother of the children was apprehended at a separate location, and was later arrested on child abuse charges, pending the “results of the medical examiner’s report,” a release from the police department said. Police have not yet released her name.

The names of the children have also not been released , but Craig said the boy was approximately 11 years old and the girl was approximately 14.

There were two older children living in the home. They have been placed in protective custody, according to Craig.

The chief said it’s too early in the investigation to determine what happened.

“It’s unknown what factors were involved in this,” he said.

Moreno said the department is asking for the public’s help to come forward with any information pertaining to the crime.

Secret Docs Reveal Calgary Cops Mishandled Anti-Israel Riot

Ezra Levant filed an Access to Information request and uncovered police indifference to last summer’s anti-Israel riot on the steps of Calgary City Hall.

These documents show that the Calgary police were more obsessed with the public relations nightmare Levant’s investigation was creating for them, than with a Jewish family being assaulted on their watch.

 

 

 

Calgary Police Double Standards? ‘Heil Hitler’ vs ‘White Power’

Over the weekend, a Calgary man shouted “White power” at anti-racism demonstrators. During a run in with police, an officer shot the man.

Contrast this with what happened last summer in Calgary, when Muslims chanted “Heil Hitler” at pro-Israel demonstrators — and cops stood by, doing nothing.

And remember: that summer pro-Israel rally was held to protest an earlier incident of police indifference: the assault on a Calgary Jewish family during a riot by Muslim thugs — who were only charged under pressure by Levant and Sun News.

Why the double standard? Why are the police so cowardly?

mentally ill feminists at U.K conference claims clapping trigger anxiety

A U.K. student feminism conference is asking attendees to refrain from clapping and use “jazz hands” instead so as to not trigger anxiety in others.

The National Union of Students (NUS) Women’s Campaign announced the clapping “ban” at the West Midlands conference on Twitter Tuesday, shortly after receiving a request from the Oxford University Women’s Campaign.

“@nuswomcam please can we ask people to stop clapping but do feminist jazz hands? it’s triggering some peoples’ anxiety. thank you!” Oxford representatives wrote.

Shailene Woodley tells femicunts to take a hike

As Western Journalism reported, the 23-year-old star of hit films Divergent and The Fault in Our Stars made news last year after criticizing and denouncing the current prevailing definition of feminism.

At the time, Shailene Woodley announced she does not consider herself a feminist because she “love[s] men,” going on to describe the movement as inherently flawed.

Not only did she assert that the effort to “take men away from power … is never going to work out because you need balance”; she also pointed out a perceived hypocrisy among feminists.

“I don’t know how women expect men to respect us,” she said, “because we don’t even seem to respect each other. There’s so much jealousy, so much comparison and envy.”

As a result of her remarks, Woodley received significant criticism – offset by a considerable outpouring of support by those opposed to the radical message embraced by certain feminist groups. The backlash, however, has apparently had no impact on her views. In a recent interview with Nylon, Woodley described feminism as “a label” meant to divide rather than unite.

“We should all be able to embrace one another regardless of our belief system and regardless of the labels that we have put upon ourselves,” she said.

 

Addressing those who attacked her for her views, Woodley chided them for wasting their time focusing on one individual’s opinion.

“I mean, if we spent as much energy focusing on the genocide that’s going on right now in parts of Africa as we spent on that one article,” she said, “think about what we could accomplish. Change is not going to come from focusing on the small things that actors say.”

Poll Shows Islam Creating Apprehension in Canada…

Most Canadians think “irreconcilable” differences exist between Western and Muslim societies, according to polling to be revealed at this week’s Metropolis conference in Vancouver.

Whether it’s the rise of Islamic State zealots, the killing of free-speech advocates in Paris and Copenhagen or disputes over niqabs, the polling shows Canadians are not immune to global anxiety about religion-fuelled conflict.

The Leger Marketing polls found 63 per cent of Canadian Protestants, 62 per cent of Jews, 60 per cent of Catholics and 46 per cent of the non-religious believe Western and Islamic societies are “irreconcilable.”

Even 42 per cent of Canadian Muslims believe the contrast between the West and Islamic cultures was irreconcilable.

The subject of religion and social tension — and how to counteract it — is on the minds of more than 1,000 people attending two related conferences this week in Vancouver.

Feminists Lie About Rape

http://theothermccain.com/2015/03/24/feminists-lie-about-rape/

 

In the comments on an earlier post about the UVA rape hoax, someone appended a list of similar hoaxes perpetrated at colleges. The original source of this list appears to be by Eric Owens at the Daily Caller:

  • In 1990, Mariam Kashani, a sophomore at George Washington University, who was a rape counselor and worked for a rape crisis hotline, told the school newspaper about a white woman who was raped by two black men on campus. The men held the woman at knifepoint and the men had “particularly bad body odor”. When the two men were finished, Kashinai said, they laughed at the woman and told her she was “pretty good for a white girl”.
    When her story crumbled, Kashani said she was really sorry and insisted that she “had hoped the story, as reported, would highlight the problems of safety for women”.
  • In April 1991, Princeton University student Mindy Brickman falsely accused a fellow Princeton student of raping her, spreading her claim through conversations around campus. She also repeated the smear at a campus “take back the night” rally.
    Once Brickman’s claim fell apart, she wrote an apology in the pages of the Princetonian newspaper: “I never intended for anyone to be hurt by my statements, which were intended to raise awareness for the plight of the campus rape victims”.
  • In 1993 at Oberlin College, a “take back the night” group posted a number of signs on campus labeling an apparently randomly-chosen, innocent freshman as “Rapist of the Month”. An 18-year-old male student, a philosophy major, was retrieving his mail when he first saw the signs calling him a rapist. He tore down the signs and had to deny the allegation to his friends.
    “I haven’t even dated at Oberlin,” the student insisted. “I don’t drink. I don’t do drugs. I couldn’t have gotten myself in that kind of situation.” A friend described him as “almost boring”.
    Sophomore Emily Lloyd suggested that critics of the falsehood were missing the “take back the night” group’s larger point. “So many women get their lives totally ruined by being assaulted and not saying anything,” Lloyd explained. “So if one guy gets his life ruined, maybe it balances out.”
  • In November 2004, Desiree Nall, a student at Rollins College in Winter Park FL and the president of the local chapter of the National Organization for Women, told police during Sexual Assault Awareness Week that two men raped her in a bathroom on campus.
    Police became skeptical of Nall’s claims after she couldn’t keep her story straight and was unable to provide descriptions of the two men, and an examination at a sexual assault treatment center showed no evidence of any sexual assault.
    Nall, 23, eventually recanted her fake rape allegations. Police suggested that Nall could have been attempting to “make a statement” about sexual assault, and ultimately spent $50,000 investigating Nall’s imaginary claims. Nall was charged for making a false statement to police. Her husband defended her, insisting the cops targeted her because “she is a women’s-rights activist”.
  • In February 2013, Morgan Triplett, 20, visited the University of California, Santa Cruz for a lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender conference. While there, she claimed that she had been raped in broad daylight on the campus. The bizarre truth is that she successfully used Craigslist to locate a stranger who agreed to beat her up in exchange for sex. Her first ad sought somebody to shoot her in the shoulder. Her second ad, seeking someone willing to “punch, kick and bruise her” panned out.
    Triplett met her unnamed mangler in Santa Cruz, he beat her up and they had sex. She used a cellphone screen reflection as a mirror to see if the injuries were sufficient, and then told him to pummel her some more. With fresh bruises to substantiate her tale, Triplett then informed 911 that a mysterious assailant had raped and battered her while she was walking on a path looking for banana slugs — the UCSC mascot.
  • In April 2013, former University of Florida student 22-year-old Tanya Borachi said a man dressed in black and wearing a black mask and gloves brutally tied her hands and gagged her while she was getting out of her car. She only got away, she claimed, by kicking the man in the groin and running, still tied and gagged. Her roommate, who fell for her story, unbound her.
    Boarchi initially defended her fabricated story by saying that she was trying to teach the world “a lesson to women in the area that an attack could happen to them”. Police charged Boarchi with filing a false police report.

Feminists do this deliberately — purposefully making false claims of rape — because it advances their ideological agenda.

People need to wake the hell up.

Sex, Lies and ‘Broken People’

http://theothermccain.com/2015/03/24/sex-lies-and-broken-people/

 

Bobby Bradshaw spent seven months in jail because a crazy woman with a fake Russian accent falsely accused him of rape:

“If everyone knew the whole story, they could make a movie out of it,” he said. “It’s something you couldn’t write. It’s too crazy.” . . .
At the July hearing, the woman, speaking with a thick accent, testified that she had only lived in the country since 2008. But when Defense Attorney Brandy Spurgin visited her later in Warren County, where she was in jail for violating probation in another case, the accent was gone.
“The biggest red flag for me was learning that the accent was fake,” Spurgin said.
The woman testified that when she met Bradshaw she was completing a drug rehabilitation program and living in a halfway house called Oasis. She testified she’d voluntarily entered drug court in Warren County. She also had an outstanding warrant for domestic violence charges in Citrus County, Fla.
Records show that in 2009 she pleaded guilty to tampering with evidence, and in 2012 she was charged with filing a false report in a sexual assault case.

(Hat-tip: Instapundit.) DNA evidence cleared Bradshaw in this case, which points to the basic problem with the whole “rape epidemic” hysteria feminists have ginned up on college campuses. Over and over again, we are confronted with dubious cases — often reported to university officialsmonths after the alleged incidents — where there is no evidence beyond the claims of the accuser. There’s no DNA, no medical exam, no 911 call, no police report, just a woman making an accusation that her drunken hookup with a fellow student was rape. It’s always a “he-said/she-said” scenario and there’s no way any prosecutor would take a case like that to criminal court. Under pressure from feminists (and federal authorities) to “do something” in such cases, universities have set up extra-judicial disciplinary tribunals where accused male students can be subjected to administrative punishment without the constitutional due-process protections they would have in an actual courtroom.

 

It is apparent that university officials — sincerely desiring to protect women from sexual assault but also desiring to protect themselves from lawsuits, federal regulators and bad publicity — have created a climate in which a “believe the survivors” doctrine gives deranged or dishonest women carte blanche to make accusations like Jackie’s tall tale of gang rape at the University of Virginia.

Go back and re-read Cathy Young’s interview with Paul Nungesser, the Columbia University student who was accused of rape by “Mattress Girl” Emma Sulkowicz. According to that account, Nungesser had hooked up with Sulkowicz twice during their freshman year, then hooked up with her again at the start of their sophomore year. After that third hookup, Nungesser says Sulkowicz gave no indication that she considered her sexual activity with him to be coerced or abusive. It was apparently only after she compared notes with Nungesser’s ex-girlfriend that Sulkowicz decided to accuse Nungesser of rape.

HELLO? 2 + 2 = ?

If it walks like a vindictive bitch and it talks like a vindictive bitch, maybe you should suspect it is a vindictive bitch.

This is not to say I’d be willing to provide a character reference for Paul Nungesser, however, nor am I saying that I know for a fact that he did nothing wrong in his hookup with Sulkowicz. What I’m saying is that Sulkowicz’s motive for bringing a rape accusation against Nungesser looks more like revenge than justice, and if it weren’t for all the shrieking hysteria ginned up by feminists, people wouldn’t be afraid to say so. Feminists have succeeded in intimidating people into silence — “Shut Up, Because Rape!” — so that the voices of common sense cannot be heard. It’s the same story with the UVA hoax, as Ace of Spades says:

“In order to appease a noisy and influential political lobby, we’re all required to pretend along with Jackie.”

There is no actual evidence that anybody raped Jackie, just as there is no actual evidence that Paul Nungesser raped Emma Sulkowicz, and yet feminists are such an “influential political lobby” that we are required to “pretend along” with the accusers.

People are afraid to tell the truth, afraid to speak from the basis of their own experience and common sense, because they don’t want to be called names: Sexist, misogynist, “rape apologist.” Yet all of us know that some women are liars and some women are mentally unbalanced, and it isn’t hard to see how this endless crusade about a (non-existent) “rape epidemic” on college campuses could encourage crazy or dishonest women to make false accusations. Or, at least, these women make accusations for which there is no credible evidence and thus no basis for criminal prosecution, so that the only purpose served by making such an accusation is (a) to damage the reputation of the accused, and (b) to qualify the accuser as a “survivor” deserving of sympathy and support.

When we see feminists heaping praise on Emma Sulkowicz, we have to wonder what the effect of that celebration might be on the unhappy woman who wishes she could be applauded as a courageous feminist heroine. There has been a lot of talk about the “1-in-5″ statistic, the debunked claim that 20% of female college students are victims of sexual assault. But investigate another statistic: What percent of female college students are mentally ill? Depression, anxiety, drug addiction, alcoholism, personality disorders — whatever the numbers may be, we cannot deny that a certain percentage of women are crazy.

Also, a certain percentage of women are vindictive bitches.

“I’m beginning to think that most lefty movements are just about broken people trying to manipulate the rest of us so they can feel good about their broken selves.”

It’s so true. In a nation of more than 300 million people, you can organize a movement of millions merely by appealing to the abnormal, the vindictive, the insane and the dishonest.

But why bring up the Hillary Clinton campaign now, huh?
