Ashley Madison was a giant con: 2 subscribers commit suicide; female subscribers are fakes

The wages of sin.

After hackers of Ashley Madison (AM) made public the personal information of the adultery website’s 37 million subscribers, including their names, email addresses, and sexual fantasies, two subscribers apparently committed suicide.

Some of those subscribers actually used their work email addresses, as shown by the many addresses that end in .gov, .mil, a company name (WellsFargo), a university name (UTexas), and even the United Nations. (See “Pentagon/FBI investigate Ashley Madison hack, in fear of blackmail of government subscribers to adultery site”)

The Daily Mail reports, Aug. 24, 2015, that Captain Michael Gorhum, who had served for 25 years with the San Antonio Police Department in Texas, took his own life just days after hackers published his email using the official San Antonio city e-address.

Captain Michael Gorhum

Gorhum’s email address was one of three San Antonio city official email addresses which were leaked as part of the Ashley Madison, the IBTimes reports.

At a press conference on Monday, Aug. 24, Canadian police confirmed a second suicide of a man also believed to have been using AM. Police are investigating if the deaths are as a direct result of the leak of AM users.

Thus far, “famous” AM subscribers who are outed include Josh Duggar of the pious Duggar family; two reality TV dudes (whose names I don’t recognize, nor will you); and Jeff Ashton, the state attorney of Florida’s Orange and Osceola counties who gained national attention as the prosecutor in the unsuccessful murder prosecution of Casey Anthony.

The latest on Josh “Porky Pig” Duggar: He’s entered rehab. A porn star/stripper, Danica Dillon, says she had sex with Josh on two separate occasions, when Josh’s wife was pregnant with their 4th child. Dillon says Josh did not make contact with her on AM. Instead, he had approached her in a strip club. (InTouch Weekly)

Ashton said he is resigning his post after being revealed as an Ashley Madison user, but insists he had committed no crime and never followed through with an affair on the cheating website. He choked up several times during a news conference while publicly apologizing to his wife, their three children and his four adult children from previous marriages.

The Ashley Madison leak has already resulted in lawsuits filed against the company. A family lawyer described it as ‘Christmas in September’ for the industry.

Canadian widower Eliot Shore, who joined the site after his wife of 30 years died of cancer, is leading a £368 million lawsuit against Ashley Madison and demanding £4.8 million in damages after his details were published on the internet.

Ashley Madison is offering a $500,000 bounty to anyone who names the hackers and helps police secure a conviction against them.

Gawker’s Gabrielle Bluestone discovered there are only three ZIP codes in all of America which are untainted by Ashley Madison in that there is no record of AM users in those places.

But, wait. Those 3 zip codes are not in AM only because of their sparse population and lack of Internet service. They are:

  1. Nikolai, Alaska (zip code 99691) — Population: 94 (2010 Census)
  2. Perryville, Alaska (99648) — Population: 113 (2010 Census)
  3. Polvadera, New Mexico (87828) — Population:269 (2010 Census)

Read more about those 3 zip codes here.

Meanwhile, the enterprising editor-in-chief of Gizmodo, Annalee Newitz, took a detailed look at the leaked data, and concluded that most of Ashley Madison’s female accounts are fake. From Yahoo!Celebrity:

The official numbers from the site showed that 31 million of the accounts belonged to men while 5 million supposedly were linked to females. However, Newitz…found that a whopping 10,000 accounts were created with the Ashleymadison.com email, implying that they were test subscriptions. Nine thousand of those 10,000 belonged to women, while the remaining numbers were either categorized as male or no gender specified….

Ashley Madison was fueled by a façade of fake accounts. “What I discovered was that the world of Ashley Madison…isn’t a debauched wonderland of men cheating on their wives,” the tech editor wrote. “It isn’t even a sadscape of 31 million men competing to attract those 5.5 million women in the database. Instead, it’s like a science fictional future where every woman on Earth is dead, and some Dilbert-like engineer has replaced them with badly-designed robots… When you look at the evidence, it’s hard to deny that the overwhelming majority of men using Ashley Madison weren’t having affairs. They were paying for a fantasy….

Out of 5.5 million female accounts, roughly zero percent had ever shown any kind of activity at all, after the day they were created. Ashley Madison employees did a pretty decent job making their millions of women’s accounts look alive. They left the data in these inactive accounts visible to men, showing nicknames, pictures, sexy comments…. Ashley Madison is a site where tens of millions of men write mail, chat, and spend money for women who aren’t there.

In other words, Ashley Madison was a gigantic con game of its founder-CEO Noel Biderman.

The families of police captain Michael Gorhum and the Canadian suicide man should sue Noel Biderman.

San Diegans sign petition for “White Privilege Tax”

Mark Dice strikes again, this time with another fake petition, asking passersby in San Diego, CA, to sign a petition for a “white privilege tax” — a 1% tax on the income of “white” Caucasian Americans. The revenue from this special tax would be “redistributed” to “minority communities” to advance the cause of social justice.

By my count, 4 blacks, one Puerto Rican, and one Asian signed the petition.

signers of white privilege tax petition

Only one person, a non-white male at the 3:10 mark in the video, balked at the petition, calling it “terrible.” A savvy black couple (at the 6:03 mark) caught on that the petition is a joke.

It’s a mark of how low-information and downright stupid some San Diegans are that (a) no one asked Dice how “white” or Caucasian would be defined; and after so many of Dice’s videos, they (b) don’t recognize him; and (c) fall for his phony petitions every time.

Protestors Against Grocery Store and Senior Facility Knocked Down by Car

no sprouts

KTVU (Albany, CA): A protest march in Albany became even more impassioned Thursday evening, after a driver tore through the demonstration, knocking a few people to the ground.

It happened on San Pablo Avenue, as a group of about 60 Occupy the Farm” activists made their way back to two disputed lots slated for commercial development.  “Farm in, Sprouts out, farm in, Sprouts out,” the crowd chanted, declaring their opposition to a Sprouts grocery store on land owned by U.C. Berkeley. They have long lobbied for a community garden on the fenced-off plot.

U.C. Police were monitoring the gathering, and Albany Police were escorting the march, when a Cadillac blaring its horn drove into the midst of the group. When protesters reacted angrily, pounding on the car, the driver hit the gas and sent one woman tumbling. Emotions on both sides were already high.

“There’s a grocery store people can go to, two blocks down,” argued a young woman from Occupy, face to face with counter-protestors, who welcome Sprouts. “This isn’t a wild space, this is an urban area where we live,” insisted an Albany woman, holding her own sign supporting the store.

In addition to the retail space, a senior living facility is approved for a site across the street. Opponents sued to stop the development, but lost in court.

Many residents complain the protesters don’t live in Albany. “I know that having something in town that would bring in some taxes would be a wonderful boost,” Marsha Skinner told KTVU, “and I have friends who would like to live at the senior facility.”

Several years ago, about the time the Occupy movement emerged, the “Occupy the Farm” faction claimed the space as public farmland. It sits next to the Gill Tract, where U.C. already conducts agricultural research and community gardening. The area also has a large student housing complex, an elementary school, and Little League ball fields.

occupy the farm

“I want you to know this struggle right here matters,” shouted an activist into a bullhorn, as protestors cheered. “We are part of a global movement,” she continued, identifying herself as Alexandra from an organization called Food First.

The would-be occupiers say they want produce not pavement on the land, but city leaders say the decision, after a decade of planning, is final. “There’s lots of land they can occupy and grow vegetables on and be welcome to do that, in Oakland,” Albany council member Michael Barnes told KTVU, “but they have never persuaded anybody in Albany that this is a good idea.”

The protestors are hoping their presence will prompt Sprouts to pull out of the project, as Whole Foods did previously. But they were accompanied throughout their demonstration, by a smaller but vocal group of development supporters. “What do we want? Senior housing! When do we want it? Now,” they shouted from across the street.

There is antagonism on both sides, but the hit and run had more to do with impatience than ideology. Police chased the driver for several miles, then gave up the pursuit due to the danger.

The woman who was hit, once back on her feet, rallied fellow marchers. “If it takes getting run over to save the Gill Tract from development,” shouted Mindy Stone, “then I’m happy to throw myself in front of a car.” Witnesses told police there were two young men in the car. With their license plate clearly visible, they will likely be tracked easily.

The development is expected to break ground in the fall.

Half of world’s Muslims are inbred due to generations of incest

Here’s an explanation for Islamic terrorism that’s never proffered:

Insanity and Stupidity

A never-spoken-about problem with Muslims is their inbreeding as a result of their long and deeply-ingrained practice of marrying first cousins — a practice that has been prohibited in the Judeo-Christian tradition since the days of Moses.

More than 7 years ago, the UK’s environment minister Phil Woolas had sounded the alarm about this “very sensitive” issue that is “rarely debated”. Referring to the culture of arranged marriages between cousins in the Muslim immigrant community, Woolas said: “If you have a child with your cousin the likelihood is there’ll be a genetic problem.

Woolas, whose views are supported by medical experts, said most cases occur in immigrant families from rural Pakistan, where up to half of all marriages involve first cousins. Woolas said: “If you talk to any primary care worker they will tell you that levels of disability among the . . . Pakistani population are higher than the general population. And everybody knows it’s caused by first cousin marriage.”

The problem is made worse by generational inbreeding. As Woolas put it, “Many of the parents themselves and many of the public spokespeople are themselves products of first cousin marriages.” That would explain why research for BBC2’s Newsnight in November 2005 showed that British Pakistanis accounted for 3.4% of all births but 30% of all British children with recessive genetic disorders.

Indeed, an entry in Wikipedia confirms that “Cousin marriages in Muslim majority countries are often preferred and even encouraged in some regions,” and points to the fact that prophet Muhammad himself had married cousins.

But the problem isn’t exclusive to Pakistani Muslims as Woolas seems to imply, but is pandemic among Muslims across the world.

Nicolai Sennels

According to Nicolai Sennels, a Danish psychologist who has done extensive research into Muslim inbreeding, close to half of all Muslims in the world are inbred:

  • 70% of Pakistanis are inbred.
  • 67% of Saudi Arabians are inbred.
  • 64% of those living in Jordan and Kuwait are inbred.
  • 63% of Sudanese are inbred.
  • 60% of Iraqis are inbred.
  • 54% of Muslims in the United Arab Emirates and Qatar are inbred.
  • 25-30% of those in Turkey are inbred.
  • In England, at least 55% of Pakistani immigrants are married to their first cousins.
  • In Denmark the number of inbred Pakistani immigrants is around 40%.

Sennels points out that cousin marriage was sanctioned by Muhammad and has been going on now for 50 generations (1,400 years) in the Muslim world. This practice of inbreeding will never go away in the Muslim world since Muhammad is the ultimate example and authority on all matters, including marriage.

Sennels warns that massive inbreeding in Muslim culture may well have done virtually irreversible damage to the Muslim gene pool, including extensive damage to Muslims’ intelligence, sanity, and health. (Similar effects were seen in the Pharaonic dynasties in ancient Egypt and in the British royal family, where inbreeding was the norm for a significant period of time.)

Below are the consequences of inbreeding:

1. Birth and birth defects:

  • 100% increase in the risk of stillbirths.
  • 50% increase in the risk that the child dies during labor.
  • The risk of autosomal recessive genetic disorders such as cystic fibrosis and spinal muscular atrophy is 18 times higher.
  • The risk of death due to malformations is 10 times higher.

2. Physical and mental retardation and illnesses:

  • The closer the blood relative, the higher the risk of mental and physical retardation and schizophrenic illness.
  • The closer the blood relative, the higher the risk of schizophrenic illness, i.e., insanity.
  • Social abilities develop much slower in inbred babies. An academic paper published in the Indian National Science Academy found that “the onset of various social profiles like visual fixation, social smile, sound seizures, oral expression and hand-grasping are significantly delayed among the new-born inbred babies.”
  • Research shows that if one’s parents are cousins, intelligence goes down 10-16 IQ points. The risk of having an IQ lower than 70, the official demarcation for being classified as “retarded,” increases by 400% among children of cousin marriages.

All of which would explain the following phenomena among Muslims (Source: Nicolai Sennels):

  • 1 out of every 3 Somalis are mentally ill.
  • More than 40% of the patients in Denmark‘s biggest ward for clinically insane criminals have an immigrant (i.e., Muslim) background.
  • One-third of all handicapped people in Copenhagen have a “foreign” (i.e., Muslim) background.
  • In Denmark, psychologist Sennels’ native country, “non-Western” immigrants (who are mainly Muslim) are more than 300% more likely to fail the intelligence test required for entrance into the Danish army.
  • In Denmark, Muslim children are grossly overrepresented among children with special needs. One-third of the budget for Danish schools is consumed by special education.
  • 64% of school children with Arabic parents in Denmark are still illiterate after 10 years in the Danish school system. The immigrant drop-out rate in Danish high schools is twice that of the native-born.
  • The U.S. is not immune. According to Sennels, “One study based on 300,000 Americans shows that the majority of Muslims in the USA have a lower income, are less educated, and have worse jobs than the population as a whole.

Muslims’ average lower IQ means a lowered ability to enjoy and produce knowledge and abstract thinking, which would explain why:

  • The Arab world translates just 330 books every year, about 20% of what Greece alone does. In the last 1,200 years years of Islam, just 100,000 books have been translated into Arabic, about what Spain does in a single year.
  • 7 out of 10 Turks have never even read a book.
  • Only 9 Muslims had ever won the Nobel Prize, and 5 of those 9 were for the “Peace Prize.”
  • According to Nature magazine, Muslim countries produce just 10% of the world average when it comes to scientific research (measured by articles per million inhabitants).

Sennels concludes:

The troubling reality being referred to is the widespread practice of Muslim inbreeding and the birth defects and social ills that it spawns.

The tragic effect of the Left’s control of the boundaries of debate is that any discussion about vital issues such as these marks an individual as an “Islamophobe” and a “racist.”

A person who dares to point at the pathology of inbreeding in the Muslim community is accused of whipping up hatred against Muslim people.

But all of this could not be further from the truth. To fight against inbreeding anywhere is to defend humanity and to defend innocent babies from birth defects….

Let us keep in mind that Muslims are the first — though maybe not the biggest — victims of Islam….

In fact, it is the Left’s callous silence on this issue (and on so many others) that exposes who is truly “anti-Muslim.”

July 4, 2015: All is not well with America

Today is the 239th anniversary of the first 4th of July in 1776.

On that day, the Continental Congress unanimously adopted the Declaration of Independence drafted by Thomas Jefferson, thereby marking the formation of a new sovereign nation independent from Great Britain, called the United States of America. (See “Remembering that first 4th of July“)

239 years after so many of our Founders had sacrificed their lives and property in the American Revolution of Independence, all is not well with the United States of America as seen in the latest indicators.

1. More and more Americans, especially the young, are considering leaving the U.S.

Although only 0.001% of Americans renounced their U.S. citizenship in 2014, a recent poll finds that Americans increasingly are considering leaving the U.S. for foreign shores.

A recent online poll of more than 2,000 adults by TransferWise, a peer-to-peer money transfer service based in the UK, found that 35% (1 out of 3!) of American-born residents and emigrants would consider leaving the United States to live in another country. The Millennials (those aged 18 to 34) are even more disposed to leave America: More than half or 55% of millennials said that they would consider leaving the U.S. for foreign shores. Among them, 43% of men and 38% of women said that a higher salary would be a factor in their relocation decision. (Source: CNBC)

2. Many Americans don’t know the meaning of July 4th

Paul Joseph Watson of InfoWars points out that in 2011, a Maris poll found that:

  • Only 58% of Americans knew that the United States declared its independence in 1776.
  • About ¼ of Americans had no idea from whom America declared its independence.
  • 14% of U.S. teens thought that the U.S. declared independence from France, while another 5% thought it was Canada.

4 years later, Americans are no less frighteningly ignorant. In another of his devastating man-on-the-street interviews, Mark Dice found that many beachgoers in San Diego are clueless about the Fourth of July:

  • This man doesn’t know it was the American colonies that broke away from England. Know nothings1
  • This woman thinks Independence Day refers to the end of the Civil War when “we” won and “overtook the south. know nothings2
  • This woman thinks Abraham Lincoln had signed the Declaration of Independence in 1964 or 1984. know nothings3
  • This man doesn’t know which country we declared independence from; his female partner thinks Independence Day marks our independence “from California.” know nothings4
  • This woman has no idea what we’re celebrating our independence from, then guessed that it was from “those countries.” know nothings5
  • This middle-aged woman can’t name even one of our Founding Fathers. know nothings6
  • This man, with 2 kids, also has no idea which country “we broke away from” when we declared our independence in 1776.know nothings7

Thank you, public schools and teachers of America.

You must be so proud for miseducating generations of proud know-nothing Americans.
