Top mainland envoy talks up ‘cross-strait peace’

http://www.chinapost.com.tw/taiwan/china-taiwan-relations/2015/05/25/436847/Top-mainland.htm

TAIPEI, Taiwan — The meeting between Taiwan’s Mainland Affairs Council head Andrew Hsia (夏立言) and the head of China’s Taiwan Affairs Office (國台辦) Zhang Zhi-jun (張志軍) came to a close yesterday, with Zhang emphasizing the importance of “peaceful cross-strait development.”

“Do not fail to notice the street lamp before it has gone out. Do not realize the value of peace until you lose it,” were Zhang’s parting words after mentioning that both governments have gained much from the seven-years of cooperation, and also further concluding three other “resolutions” from his trip to Kinmen.

The three resolutions include “a peaceful and stable Taiwan Strait,” “to enrich people on both shores’ well-being,” and “to continue down the road of peaceful development,” Zhang said, and hoped a second Hsia-Zhang meeting could be possible in the future.

Mainland Affairs Council Deputy Minister Steve Lin (林祖嘉) also pointed out that the meeting had an important meaning, as it saw discussions of important issues such as a continual cross-strait exchange, Taiwan’s future participation in the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB) and the reciprocal establishment of cross-strait representative offices and travel hubs for Chinese tourists in Taiwan. The deputy minister hoped the issues discussed will bear fruit soon.

Lin also said that the Kinmen-Fujian water pipeline, environmental concerns about garbage on the Kinmen’s shores, and the “Little Three Links” (小三通) were also Kinmen-related issues discussed during the meeting.

Knives of Peace

Kitchen knives being made in Kinmen from old artillery shell casings symbolize that the two sides of the Taiwan Strait have buried the hatchet and are working for peace, the Chinese official said.

Zhang also said he hoped the two sides can maintain peace while visiting the steel knife factory that makes knives from the shells fired by China at Kinmen between 1958 and 1978.

During the 1958 Taiwan Strait Crisis, the People’s Liberation Army fired around 450,000 shells at the Kinmen Islands located just kilometers off China’s coast to try to retake them from the Republic of China (Taiwan).

More recently, Kinmen has become famous for its production of cleavers made from the PLA shells.

Go back home, TSU: Kinmen

Kinmen Council members protested yesterday in response to the brawl that occurred before Zhang’s arrival at Kinmen’s Shuitou Harbor, caused by youth wing members of the Taiwan Solidarity Union (TSU, 台聯青年軍) who hurled smoke grenades and clashed with pro-unification supporters.

Hung Li-ping (洪麗萍) along with other council members had arrived at the Treasure Island Resort Hotel (金沙大地國際渡假飯店), where the meeting was held, to stage protests against the TSU’s violent actions.

The council members condemned the violent methods, saying that the Hsia-Zhang meeting was held to discuss the improvement of Kinmen’s livelihood, and chanted “Kinmen needs livelihood; we condemn violence” and “Go back home, TSU.”

The Kinmen County Police Department also reported arresting three TSU youth protesters who hurled grenades, and one civilian who attacked the protesters. The police finished their inquiries and the recording of statements last night.

The department also denied being biased in its management of the case and said it will maintain a legal, neutral stance throughout the investigation.

CORPORATE FASCISM: The Destruction of America’s Middle Class

A new kind of fascism has taken over America: the merger of corporations and government whereby corporate power dominates. With the emergence of ever-larger multinational corporations — due to consolidation facilitated by the Federal Reserve’s endless FIAT money — the corporatocracy has been in a position to literally purchase the U.S. Congress.

A result of the corporate purchase of Congress is that many of the nation’s “laws” have been re-configured to benefit WE THE CORPORATIONS, rather than WE THE PEOPLE. “Laws” like NAFTA and GATT resulted in the outsourcing of the U.S. manufacturing base and the destruction of the Middle Class. This is nothing less than the 1 Percenters abusing the 99 Percenters. Known as “monopoly capitalism,” “crony capitalism,” “mercantilism,” “globalization,” “the new world order,” and/or “free trade” — this is NOT your Grandfather’s capitalism.

Life in the ghetto: “Danes can not even sit on their balcony and eat a pork sandwich”

http://10news.dk/?p=1298

 

“I ought to be happy; politicians have in recent years invested heavily in the disadvantaged areas. They have spent millions to improve the physical environment, the homes have been refurbished, fine new trees are planted… But the human and social development out here has completely stopped, or maybe even worsened.

Immigrant gangs are stronger than ever … and young people’s hatred of Denmark thrive. It is deeply, deeply troubling, and I fear for the consequences for Danish society, if the politicians do not immediately wake up and do something drastic’.

The call comes from 40-year-old Khaled Mustapha …

‘It is simply not attractive [for Danes to live here]. Yes, we have some students who give it a chance, but they move out of here again as soon as they can. … Ethnic Danes feel unsafe here, and I understand that. They can not even sit out on the balcony and eat a pork sandwich or set a Danish flag on the table without the risk of being accosted.’

‘I hear them, for example. say they hate Denmark and the Danes. And here we are talking about young people who are born and raised in Denmark. When I ask them how they can hate people they have never met, they reply that the Danes are racists who hate Muslims. … I simply do not believe our society can bear this developlent, if this mentality continues to spread over the next 10-20 years. … the youths are attracted by radical religious environments and immigrant gangs, where they come together to hate Denmark.’

False Rape Accuser: Latvian-born Alesia Riabenkova

..

A Manhattan model who once dated actor Gerard Butler brought rape charges against a fashion photographer — but the case fell apart when she claimed he got her pregnant and a DNA test proved he was not the father, The Post has learned.

Latvian-born stunner Alesia Riabenkova, who has done work for Guess and graced the covers of Glamour and Elle magazines, met the lensman at a Long Island City lounge in October to discuss her struggling career.

The two chatted over champagne about a potential photo shoot and then went back to his condo in a nearby luxury high-rise.

About 45 minutes later, Riabenkova told a doorman she had been raped by the photographer and asked him to call 911, said his lawyer, Tom Kenniff.

Police arrested the lensman, and he spent a night behind bars. Prosecutors soon downgraded the charge to sexual misconduct because they found holes in her story and her rape kit tested inconclusive, Kenniff said.

Then, in January 2015, Riabenkova made a shocking claim — telling prosecutors she was impregnated during the alleged rape and wanted an abortion.

The DA’s Office told the clinic to preserve the biological material, and Kenniff immediately asked for a DNA test.

The results proved his client was not the father, and on May 15 the case was thrown out and sealed.

Riabenkova, 22, refused to talk to a Post reporter on Friday at her swanky Flatiron building, saying through a doorman that she was “sick.”

Asked whether his client would file a civil suit against the catwalk stunner, Kenniff said, “We are exploring all options.”

“She tried to destroy my client’s life, and she should be punished for it,” Kenniff, railed about Riabenkova, who will not face false-report charges.

Kenniff — who said his client fooled around with the model but did not have sex with her — said she appeared completely calm in the elevator ride down and in the lobby after making the allegation.

“The surveillance footage showed her sipping from a water bottle in the lobby without a care in the world while waiting for the police to arrive,” Kenniff charged.

Green Activists Explain How To Brainwash Children With Climate Pornography

http://www.breitbart.com/london/2015/05/24/green-activists-explain-how-to-brainwash-children-with-climate-pornography/

As the Jesuits almost said: “Give a child until he is seven and I will show you the fully indocrinated, yogurt-weaving, polar-bear hugging eco loon.”

Such, at any rate, has been the message at one of the panel discussions at this year’s luvvie-fest of impeccably correct thinking, the Hay Literary Festival, where a group of “CliFi” authors have been singing the praises of brainwashing the impressionable young through the medium of kiddie-friendly climate pornography.

Climate activists are targeting children through a new range of ‘cli-fi’ – climate fiction – novels which seek to highlight the dangers of global warming.

David Thorpe, author of the book Stormteller, said that children were more open minded and claimed that writers could ‘infect’ their minds with ‘seriously subversive viral ideas’.

He was speaking at the Hay Festival alongside ‘cli-fi’ authors George Marshall and Saci Lloyd.

“I like writing for children because their minds are still forming,” said Mr Thorpe whose novel is set in a coastal Wales ravaged by climate change and rising sea levels.

“They are asking all sorts of questions about how the world is working. Their minds haven’t been tainted by ideological bias, they are still open minded about it.

“You can try to be seriously subversive and try to infect their minds with these viral ideas that they can explore on their own to make it exciting. When I was that age I loved having my mind boggled.”

Saci Lloyd, author of the children’s book, The Carbon Diaries, said it was important to write engaging stories for children while keeping climate change as an underlying theme, so it was not obvious that it was a central topic.

Interesting use of the word “subversive” there in the novel sense of “achingly conventional”. I don’t know how many classes you’ve visited, David Thorpe – quite a few, I would imagine, given my understanding of how assiduously children’s authors court schools in order to have their jottings whacked willy-nilly onto parents’ bills – but what you might have noticed had you been paying any attention is that “global warming” is taught these days as assiduously as the Sermon on the Mount, the parables and the Ten Commandments used to be in the past.

Also on the panel was a chap called George Marshall, author of a book called Don’t Even Think About It: Why our Brains Are Wired to Ignore Climate Change.

“We need to get climate change out of the rational side of our brain and into the emotional part because that is where attitudes are formed on the basis of our values,” he said.

So if the facts don’t suit you, make stuff up. Yeah, I get it.

Why You Should Avoid Dating Girls Who Claim They Were Raped.

http://www.returnofkings.com/63690/why-you-should-avoid-dating-girls-who-claim-they-were-raped

The feminists are right. Men must shoulder the responsibility for ending rape culture, and the way we do it is this: Never date a raped chick.

Next time you hear (or hear of) a chick claiming she got raped, what you should do is nothing. Don’t confront or antagonize her. Don’t question her motives. Certainly don’t quibble over the particulars of the raped chick’s story; even if you prove she’s lying, the world will still insist she’s a victim (see: Jackie Coakley, formerly of UVA).

And don’t date her. Simple as that.

To be clear, I’m not suggesting you forego banging a raped chick (after getting her written consent, notarized and in triplicate). Outside of a girl who is currently in the process of going ass-to-mouth with you, in many cases a chick who claims to have gotten raped is the closest thing to a guaranteed freak you can find.

But, whatever else you may do to her, do not date her.

Undercutting Rape’s Appeal

 

Girls are fond of falsely crying rape because in the sexually liberated West, being known as a rape victim is all upside, no downside. Raped chicks are praised for heroism and bravery. Other people lavish attention on them, and ask them to speak about themselves at length, which for chicks is like crack cocaine.

In extreme cases, raped chicks have leveraged their purported suffering into international acclaim and seven-figure book deals.

It bears mentioning that raped chicks have always been coddled and comforted (at least in the West), and in that regard, they are not so different today than before. But in times past, that coddling took place behind closed doors, among family. It was private and there was no way to leverage it into unusual status.

Rape was kept private is because it held terrible implications for the raped chick’s future. If she were single, she could be judged unfit for marriage. If she were married and gave birth soon after the rape, the child would be regarded with suspicion if not outright labeled a bastard.

Our society came to regard rape with such gravity primarily because of these things, and only secondarily because of the emotional turmoil a raped chick experiences as she orgasms underneath her alluring, bad-boy attacker.

If men once again refuse to date raped chicks, rape will become once more an infrequent source of private and passing pain, and not an indelible merit badge to be trumpetedacross all the media outlets in the land.

Why It Works

Bitches and feebleminded manginas who happen across this humble call for sanity will no doubt object that my plan won’t work. Already I can see David Futrelle’s fourth chin trembling as he stammers his rebuttal in a fit of pique:

Maybe this would work against a few famous raped chicks, like Lena Dunham and Emma Sulkowicz, because they’ve gone public with their stories. But what about all the other raped chicks? They won’t tell you they’ve been raped till you’ve already pair bonded and shared your Netflix password with them.

Eloquently lisped, Mr. Futrelle, and I thank you for raising that point—because therein lies the brilliance of this strategy.

In point of fact, it hardly matters whether you do or don’t date (or even marry) a raped chick. I hear it’s a bad idea, but then again, I’ve only knowingly dated one raped chick and she was one of the most pleasant and down to earth young ladies to ever drink of my golden seed.

What matters is that you say you won’t date raped chicks, and thus encourage girls to think that crying rape will hurt their romantic prospects.

Realize that we are fighting a war of disinformation, against an unprincipled enemy that is openly contemptuous of the truth. Nothing could be more tediously unproductive than arguing over facts with an opponent who has chosen to forego them. To win this fight, you have to hit the bitches where it hurts.

And for most chicks, that means attacking their romantic prospects—or, more fundamentally, their attractiveness. Even the most manjawed cunt secretly harbors fantasies of locking down a good man, marrying him, and thereby trebling her disposable income. Chicks will cry rape if it means endless, adoring attention with zero associated cost. But they won’t if they think getting raped renders them unattractive in the eyes of men.

A Brief Guide To Never Dating Raped Chicks

 

This is not baseless internet bravado. I have already begun testing these techniques in the wild. The effect is immediate, dramatic, and amusing. But it is important that you implement Not Dating Raped Chicks properly, so I leave you with several suggestions and one short, real-world example.

First, don’t seek opportunities to voice your aversion to dating raped chicks. Wait for someone else to bring it up.

Second, explain your position with sympathy for raped chicks, even expressing regret that you couldn’t date one. Never dating raped chicks isn’t retributive. It’s simply something you, as a man, feel compelled to do.

Last, don’t take individual responsibility for never dating raped chicks. Explain that allmales feel this way; the testicular fortitude to own your feelings is all that distinguishes you from the mass of men.

In practice, it looks like this:

Vapid Office Chick: Did you hear about that girl who got raped at Columbia? It’s awful. I read that at the end, her attacker pulled out and jizzed the words “Reify patriarchy” across her chest.

Enlightened RoK Reader (head bowed): So true, so unquestionably true. And the worst part is, now she’ll never get married.

Vapid Office Chick: Right— wait, what?

Enlightened RoK Reader (mournfully): Yeah. Most men won’t even date a raped chick. How would she ever get married?

Thirsty White Knight: Um, wow. You don’t know what you’re talking about, dude. (turns to Vapid Office Chick) I don’t care about a girl’s past. I care about who she is now.

Enlightened RoK Reader: Sure, but almost all of your friends are women. And don’t you own Scandal on Blu-ray?

Thirsty White Knight (with rising anger): So?

Enlightened RoK Reader: I mostly socialize with other men, and they all say the same thing: They would never date a raped chick. I’m not endorsing it, necessarily. It’s just how men are.

(fin)

This is a 10-megaton truth bomb, and your interlocutors will likely be angry and confused in its wake. Don’t expect them to agree with you, but don’t argue the point further. Once you’ve planted the seeds, step away and give them time to grow.

This is admittedly a long-term strategy. But if we band together in this effort, then someday, in the not-so-distant future, a 6.5 will find herself in her dorm room, regretfully recalling the night she got pounded out by the captain of her college’s club soccer team… and she’ll idly contemplate crying rape.

But then she’ll remember how much she likes the captain of the club swim team, and she’ll consider the impact crying rape would have on his opinion of her. And she’ll think better of her little lie.

And when she does, it will be because together, we took a stand against ever dating raped chicks.
