A feminist whines: “Kate Middleton shouldn’t have any more children!”

Insufferable feminist Greer

Insufferable feminist Greer

DailyMail: The Duchess of Cambridge may already be pregnant with her second child and plans to add another baby to the royal brood but one controversial feminist has slammed her decision, saying she’s “too thin” and should stop.

Geemaine Greer, who penned the best-selling book The Female Eunuch in 1979, said that the former Kate Middleton, who gave birth to Prince George last July, is “too thin” and shouldn’t  have any more children.

Speaking to British-based magazine Newsweek Europe about Kate’s chronic morning sickness, hyperemesis gravidarum, the 75-year-old Australian said: “The girl is too thin! [Kate] is vomiting her guts up and shouldn’t have been made to go through all this again so soon.”

It’s not so much that she has to be a womb, but she has to be a mother. I would hope after this one she says, “That’s it. No more.”

kate middletonIf that wasn’t enough, Greer added that 32-year-old Kate had a “b*****d of a job” because she had been “put in charge of William”.

She believes that Kate’s interests have been limited by the royal family, which she dismisses as a “mad anachronism”, and argues that Kate has had to learn exactly how to behave, adding that spontaneity will get her in trouble.

She also states that Kate, who graduated from St. Andrews University with a 2.1 honors degree in art history in 2005, is a great deal more intelligent than the rest of the royals yet is “made to appear absolutely anodyne”.

Germaine, a theorist, academic and journalist, is widely regarded as one of the mid-twentieth century’s most controversial feminist voices. She has penned numerous tomes, including Sex and Destiny: The Politics of Human Fertility; The Change: Women, Ageing and Menopause, and The Whole Woman.

She once defined her goal as “women’s liberation” as distinct from “equality with men” and aims to promote the freedom of women to define their own values and determine their own fate.

Childless Greer left home in her youth due to conflict with her family. She tied the knot to Welsh carpenter Paul du Feu in London in 1968 – but the marriage only lasted 3 1/2 weeks.

Read the rest of the story here.

———————————————————————————————–

If Kate is so highly intelligent, as Ms. Greer claims, shouldn’t she be smart enough to determine her own fate?

From The Female Eunuch wiki page:

greer

“The main thesis of the book is that the “traditional” suburban, consumerist, nuclear family represses women sexually, and that this devitalizes them, rendering them eunuch. Greer argues that men hate women, though the latter do not realize this and are taught to hate themselves.  Greer references the loss of women’s freedom with the “sudden death of communism” (1989) as catapult for women the world over for a sudden transition into consumer Western society wherein there is little to no protection for mothers and the disabled; here, there is no freedom to speak. Greer argues that change had to come about via revolution, not evolution. Women should get to know and come to accept their own bodies, taste their own menstrual blood, and give up celibacy and monogamy.

No wonder her marriage lasted less than a month.

Germany’s Ethics Council calls for legalization of incest

We really must be living in the end of days.

It isn’t enough that Germany has “bestiality brothels” and “erotic zoos,” a government advisory body is now recommending the legalization of incest.

The German Ethics Council (Deutscher Ethikrat) is an independent body of 26 academics and “persons of repute” specializing in scientific, medical, theological, ethical, social, economic and legal concerns, who are charged by the 2007 Ethics Council Act to advise the German Bundestag (national parliament) and the Federal Government on questions of ethics, society, science, medicine and law.

Lizzie Dearden reports for the UK’s The Independent that Germany’s national ethics council has called for the decriminalization and legalization of incest between siblings, after examining the case of a man, Patrick Stuebing, who had four children with his sister, Susan Karolewski. The two were not brought up together.

Patrick Stuebing and Susan Karolewski

Patrick Stuebing and Susan Karolewski

Sexual relations between siblings or between parents and their children are forbidden under section 173 of the German criminal code. Offenders can face years in prison.

But on Sept. 24, 2014, by a vote of 14 to 9, the German Ethics Council recommended section 173 be repealed, arguing that the risk of disability in children conceived by incestuous couples is not enough to warrant the law. The chairman of the council, Christiane Woopen, was among the 14 members who had voted in favor of repeal.

Members of the Ethics Council who objected to decriminalizing incest argued that it would weaken “ethically significant” family values that contribute towards personal development.

In a statement outlining its recommendations, the Ethics Council said the law against incest “put couples in a tragic situation”:

“Incest between siblings appears to be very rare in Western societies according to the available data but those affected describe how difficult their situation is in light of the threat of punishment. They feel their fundamental freedoms have been violated and are forced into secrecy or to deny their love. The Ethics Council has been told of cases where half-siblings did not grow up together and have only met in their adult lives.

The majority of the German Ethics Council is of the opinion that it is not appropriate for a criminal law to preserve a social taboo. In the case of consensual incest among adult siblings, neither the fear of negative consequences for the family, nor the possibility of the birth of children from such incestuous relationships can justify a criminal prohibition. The fundamental right of adult siblings to sexual self-determination has more weight in such cases than the abstract protection of the family.

In the case of Patrick Stuebing, he was adopted at a young age and traced his birth family in his early 20s. He and his sister Susan Karolewski, who were not brought up together, met for the first time when they were aged 24 and 16 respectively. Stuebing was convicted of incest in 2008 and spent three years in prison, failing an appeal to the Federal Constitutional Court in 2008 and to the European Court of Human Rights over his rights to a family life in 2012. Karolewski was allowed to keep custody of their youngest child but the other three were taken into care. Two are disabled, although it is not known whether incest is the cause.

A spokeswoman for German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s Christian Democratic Union party, Elisabeth Winkelmeier-Becker, responded to the Ethics Council’s vote saying that the abolition of the law against incest would give out the wrong signal because “Abolishing criminal punishment against incestuous actions within a family would go completely against protecting the undisturbed development of children.”

The Ethics Council’s recommendation only covered incest between siblings and members did not recommend decriminalizing sex between parents and children.

At least not yet.

No one died in Sandy Hook: Testimony from Social Security Death Master File

When a person in the United States dies, his/her death is recorded by the federal government.

The Social Security Death Index (SSDI) is a database of death records created from the Social Security Administration’s Death Master File (DMF). Most persons in the U.S. who had died since 1936, had had a Social Security number, and whose death was reported to the Social Security Administration are listed in the SSDI.

Unlike the Death Master File, the SSDI is available free to the public on several genealogy websites, such as Genealogy Bank. The “state of issue” refers to the state that had issued the individual’s Social Security number.

On January 20, 2013, I undertook a search on Genealogy Bank for the SSDI of Adam Lanza — the alleged mass murderer of his mother, Nancy Lanza, and 20 children and 6 adults at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, on December 14, 2012.

To my astonishment, Genealogy Bank had Lanza’s SSDI as December 13, 2012 — a day BEFORE the alleged mass shooting. (See “SSDI says Adam Lanza died a day before Sandy Hook massacre“)

Here’s a screenshot I took of Adam Lanza’s SSDI record on the website GenealogyBank.com. The date (1/20/2013) and time (2:29PM) when I took the screenshot can be seen in the lower right corner of the image below.

Click image to enlarge

Adam Lanza died 12-13-2012

After the discovery of Lanza’s 12/13/2012 SSDI went viral, on or around February 2, 2013, Genealogy Bank changed Lanza’s SSDI to 12/14/2012, the day of the alleged massacre. (See “SSDI changed Adam Lanza’s date-of-death from Dec. 13 to Dec. 14, 2012 !!!”)

Another genealogy website, Ancestry.com, was slower on the uptake. Three days after Genealogy Bank had changed its SSDI for Lanza to 12/14/2012, Ancestry.com still listed Lanza’s SSDI as 12/13/2012. (See “Ancestry.com still has Adam Lanza’s date-of-death as a day before the Sandy Hook massacre”)

Lanza’s curious SSDI aside, I was able to find on Genealogy Bank the SSDI (of 12/14/2012) of all of Lanza’s victims, except one – that of Ana Marquez-Greene, age 6, whose father is jazz musician Jimmy Greene. In my search for Ana, I had used every variation of her name: Ana Marquez, Ana Marquez-Greene, Ana Greene, to no avail. I hypothesized that the lack of a SSDI for Ana Marquez-Greene may be because her parents had not yet obtained a Social Security card/number for her. (See “Dec. 14 was date of death for every Sandy Hook massacre victim, except Adam Lanza“)

But wait!

Remember what I’d written at the beginning of this post — that the Social Security Death Index (SSDI) is a database of death records created from the federal government Social Security Administration’s Death Master File?

What if I were to tell you that the Death Master File does NOT contain the SSDIs for any of Adam Lanza’s victims?

In other words, according to the United States Social Security Administration’s Death Master File, nobody died at Sandy Hook Elementary School on December 14, 2012.

That’s exactly what blogger LivingonPlanetZ of Chemtrails: The Exotic Weapon reported on Feb. 22, 2014.

LivingonPlanetZ refers us to what he calls an “originating website” — a document published on archives.org (date unknown), titled “Sandy Hook – NO DEATHS, NO VICTIMS; According to SSDI Official Master File.” (You can also read the document in PDF here or here.)

The anonymous person who uploaded the 107-page document to archives.org had accessed the Social Security Administration’s Death Master File, updated through January 1, 2014, and searched for Adam Lanza’s victims — in vain.

The document says:

You are invited to search all of these records for the putative ‘victims’ of the Sandy Hook massacre. The children should all be 6 to 7 years old (“born” 2005-2006), and should have “died” in 2012. The adult “victims” appear in the appendix. (Each entry is followed by a 6-7 digit serial entry number, which demonstrates the continuity of the alphabetical listing – in other words, that they are presented here unaltered.)

I did just that and can verify the claim that none of Adam Lanza’s victims is in Social Security’s Death Master File. But before I present my findings, here are the Sandy Hook victims (name, birth date, gender, age at death), according to news accounts:

LivingonPlanetZ posted about the document “Sandy Hook – NO DEATHS, NO VICTIMS; According to SSDI Official Master File” on February 22, 2014.

It is noteworthy that a month later, Social Security Administration changed its policy on the public’s access to its Death Master File. On the website of the Social Security Administration, it says beginning March 27, 2014, the public can have only “limited access” to its Death Master File. To gain access to the DMF, we the American people must now jump through several hoops:

  • One must be “certified” (via having one’s application approved) to be granted “limited access”.
  • Only certain people are eligible to be “certified”. One must have a “legitimate” fraud prevention interest, or have a “legitimate” business purpose pursuant to a law, governmental rule, regulation, or fiduciary duty in order to be certified under the program. (The critical word “legitimate” is undefined, which means Social Security Administration’s bureaucrats decide what “legitimate” means.)
  • Those who are “certified” for access to the Death Master File must pay a hefty annual per-person subscription fee of $995.

Then there’s this cover-their-posterior all-purpose qualifier by Social Security Administration:

This [Death Master] file includes the following information on each decedent, if the data are available to the SSA: social security number, name, date of birth, date of death. The SSA does not have a death record for all persons; therefore, SSA does not guarantee the veracity of the file. Thus, the absence of a particular person is not proof this person is alive.

But wait!

We don’t just have to depend on Social Security’s Death Master File data to know that no one died at Sandy Hook Elementary School on December 14, 2012.

How do we know that?

The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) tells us so!

Adan Salazar reports for Infowars, Sept. 24, 2014, that recently released FBI crime statistics show that no murders occurred in Newtown, Connecticut, in 2012, despite reports that 20 schoolchildren, 6 faculty members, and Nancy Lanza were killed or, in the case of Adam Lanza, committed suicide on December 14, 2012.

Click image to enlarge

FBI 2012 crime stats1

In contrast to the Connecticut report, the 2012 FBI crime report for the state of Colorado shows that 29 murders occurred in the town of Aurora that year, a figure that takes into account the 12 people who died in the Century Theater during the midnight premiere of The Dark Knight Rises on July 20, 2012.

FBI crime stats2

To conclude, no one was killed on December 14, 2012 at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut. More perverse still, according to the Social Security Administration’s records, none of the alleged Sandy Hook victims ever lived!

As the author of “Sandy Hook – NO DEATHS, NO VICTIMS; According to SSDI Official Master File” puts it:

ALL of the identities of the “children victims” of the supposed Sandy Hook massacre, are purely fictitious identities, with no record of either birth or death. As to the adult “victims”, the only one with an identity possibly verifiable from the intact SSD Master File, is Victoria G. Soto. The other identities may or may not have been assumed by real people at some time; but the identities themselves are nevertheless fictitious. Secondary copies of the Master File, or perhaps earlier versions, appear to have been altered or “corrected”, to include the fake identities. Such altered copies appear to be in use by popular genealogy search websites, though inconsistently.

The Meaning of Life, from a 3rd grader

Matthew 25:14-30

The Parable of the Talents

“For the kingdom of heaven is like a man traveling to a far country, who called his own servants and delivered his goods to them. And to one he gave five talents, to another two, and to another one, to each according to his own ability; and immediately he went on a journey. Then he who had received the five talents went and traded with them, and made another five talents. And likewise he who had received two gained two more also. But he who had received one went and dug in the ground, and hid his lord’s money. After a long time the lord of those servants came and settled accounts with them.

“So he who had received five talents came and brought five other talents, saying, ‘Lord, you delivered to me five talents; look, I have gained five more talents besides them.’ His lord said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant; you were faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things. Enter into the joy of your lord.’ He also who had received two talents came and said, ‘Lord, you delivered to me two talents; look, I have gained two more talents besides them.’ His lord said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant; you have been faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things. Enter into the joy of your lord.’

“Then he who had received the one talent came and said, ‘Lord, I knew you to be a hard man, reaping where you have not sown, and gathering where you have not scattered seed. And I was afraid, and went and hid your talent in the ground. Look, there you have what is yours.’

“But his lord answered and said to him, ‘You wicked and lazy servant, you knew that I reap where I have not sown, and gather where I have not scattered seed. So you ought to have deposited my money with the bankers, and at my coming I would have received back my own with interest. Therefore take the talent from him, and give it to him who has ten talents.

‘For to everyone who has, more will be given, and he will have abundance; but from him who does not have, even what he has will be taken away. And cast the unprofitable servant into the outer darkness. There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.’

Another deadly weekend in Chicago: Gangbanger kills 9 year old boy

2 killed, 26 others shot since Friday night

Antonio Smith

Antonio Smith

SunTimes: A gangbanger on parole for a gun charge shot a 9-year-old boy as he searched for rival gang members, then fled and told his friends he “shot a shorty,” prosecutors said Saturday.

Allmon

Allmon

Derrick Allmon, 19, of the 7400 block of South Shore Drive, was denied bail Saturday, along with three others charged with him: Jabari Williams, 22, of the 1900 block of North Sycamore Street, Hanover Park; Michael Baker, 19, of the 8100 block of South Wentworth Avenue; and Paris Denard, 19, of the 7300 block of South Dorchester Avenue.

All are charged with murder in the Aug. 20 shooting death of 9-year-old Antonio Smith in the 1200 block of East 71st Street.

Police Supt. Garry McCarthy said Friday that Allmon shot the boy because he thought he was warning the rival gang members Allmon was after.

He said Allmon shot the boy after Antonio said a single word: “Hey.” Antonio was shot six times — in the chest, forearm, back, shoulder and hand.

Baker

Baker

Allmon then threw his gun in a sewer and ran, according to police and prosecutors. In court Saturday, authorities said Baker picked up Allmon and drove him to Denard’s house, telling Baker in the car: “I just hit a shorty. I just hit a shorty.”

He also told Denard and others he had just shot and killed a child, prosecutors said.

At Denard’s house, Allmon urinated on his hands to try to get rid of the gunshot residue, then changed his shirt before returning home to check in with electronic monitoring. The shooting happened around 4 p.m. Under the terms of his parole, Allmon was allowed to leave home between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m., prosecutors said.

Denard

Denard

Authorities said the four had left Denard’s home earlier that day in two cars, going out in search of rival gang members, with Baker and Denard driving. Both drivers stopped when they spotted two rivals, authorities said, then Williams handed Allmon the gun and told him how to follow them into a back yard.

All four have given statements to the police admitting their involvement in the murder, according to prosecutors, who said the gun was found Thursday after Allmon revealed its location to police. It was tested by the Illinois State Police and found to be the murder weapon, prosecutors said.

Surveillance videos showed the suspects’ two cars in the area, they said.

Williams

Williams

Allmon, Williams and Denard have criminal convictions, according to prosecutors. Allmon was sentenced to three years in prison for aggravated unlawful use of a weapon by a gang member and released on parole on Aug. 1.

Williams has two misdemeanor battery convictions.

Denard, convicted of possessing a gun as a juvenile, was also on parole at the time of Antonio’s killing.
