Paris Attack Anomalies: News Media Death Tallies Don’t Add Up

Dr. Eowyn:

Why can’t the media get an accurate count of the people who died in the Paris terrorist attacks, for which ISIS claimed responsibility? Was it 130? 127? or 125?

Why is this simple fact so stubbornly elusive?

Originally posted on Memory Hole:

As of November 27, 2015 the BBC, one of the world’s most powerful mass media outlets, still has an incomplete sketch on the details of exactly who perished in the November 13 Paris terror attacks, which French authorities  say resulted 130 deaths and over 350 injuries. With its abundant staff and resources, it is unusual that the news outlet with global reach would abandon such an important story. Yet it has–as have many of its competitors.


On its page, “Paris Attacks: Who Were the Victims?” the government-sponsored broadcasting giant lists hyperlinked photo descriptions of 42 victims, and verbal descriptions of an additional 83, for a grand total of 125. That means there are five fatalities Aunt Beebe–which played a central role in publicizing the attacks throughout the world–has failed to document.

Black Friday sales 10% less than last year

. . . even after factoring in an increase in online sales.

“Black Friday” got its name because traditionally, that day is the busiest shopping day of the year, enabling U.S. businesses that have been in the red until then to finally begin making a profit. The shopping season spanning November and December can account for anywhere from 20 to 40% of annual sales.

I remember that, on the morning of Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving, the local television news anchor said that the National Retail Federation expects this year’s Black Friday sales to be more than last year’s by 3+%.

I was dubious, because the U.S. economy has not improved from last year, so why would Americans suddenly have more money to spend?

Now we have the data to show that National Retail Federation’s expectation was wishful thinking.

From the AP (via The Guardian), November 28, 2015:

Total sales in the US on Black Friday fell 10% to $10.4bn this year, down from $11.6bn in 2014, according to research firm ShopperTrak.

All this is despite the fact that online sales on Black Friday this year increased 14.3% from last year, according to Adobe. That should give you an idea of how much sales by brick-and-mortal stores have plummeted.

Various excuses are given for the lackluster Black Friday sales, including that many shops were open the day before, on Thanksgiving. However, this year’s sales on Thanksgiving also dropped, and by the same percentage as Black Friday.

Thank you, Obama! /sarc


Shocker, not: Cop basher Quentin Tarantino is a liar

On October 26th, I told you how Quentin Tarantino participated in an anti-cop rally – a cry against “police terror” which devolved into a raucous, law-enforcement gripe-fest. This event took place just four days after the on-duty murder of a hero NYPD street cop.

Tarantino had fired up the crowd by complaining that cops are too often “murderers.” “When I see murders, I do not stand by . . . I have to call a murder a murder and I have to call the murderers the murderers,” he blathered to a cheering rally-goers.

Quentin Tarantino at anti-cop rally

The NY Post reports that Tarantino is now lying about a claim he had served time in a Los Angeles County jail. I guess in order to give him more “street cred” for his anti-cop antics.

On a recent episode of “Real Time with Bill Maher,” Tarantino recounted it again to claim solidarity with police protesters — that he understands what it means to be frightened of cops. “Back when I was in my 20s and broke, I was a little scared of the cops, all right?” Tarantino told ­Maher. “And oftentimes, I had warrants out on me for traffic stuff that I never took care of and everything . . . I’d get stopped, and I’d have to do eight days in county jail.”

This isn’t the first time Tarantino has told this story. In 1992 he told Paris Voice a version of the same story. “If I had a brush with the law, I think I’d wise up fast,” he said. “I spent eight days in the county jail on traffic warrants once. At first, I thought, ‘Wow, I’m going to pick up some great dialogue in here.’ But then you realize what a waste of time it is. They treat you like an animal, and nobody wants to be treated like an animal.

There multiple versions of his incarceration tale. In some, he did one stint in jail; in others, he has done multiple. One was printed in a 1997 profile of Tim Roth in GQ UK magazine: “Tarantino . . . had worked in a video shop and he had spent eight days in LA County jail for unpaid parking tickets.” In Jeffrey Dawson’s 2000 biography “Quentin Tarantino: The Cinema of Cool,” the writer-director is quoted as saying, “I went to jail about three different times just for warrants on me for moving violations . . . They had warrants on me for three years and eventually I got stopped and they sent me to jail.” In 2009, the British news site quoted Tarantino as saying, “I was kind of excited about going to jail the first time and I learned some great dialogue.”

A key story in his “story” is that Tarantino worked at LA’s Video Archives rental store for five years as a budding filmmaker. In the ­Maher appearance, he said he couldn’t pay his traffic tickets because he earned only $10,000 a year.

There’s just one problem: The LA County Sheriff’s Department has no record of the filmmaker ever being in its system. At The Post’s request, the department searched its files back through the 1980s, when Tarantino would have been incarcerated. “A check of Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department jail records revealed no evidence that Mr. Tarantino was ever incarcerated in our jail system,” said Capt. Christopher Reed of the Sheriff’s Office.

Tarantino’s agent, lawyer, publicists and Harvey Weinstein, who produced the director’s upcoming movie, “The Hateful Eight” did not respond to any of The Post’s calls or emails. The Post also left voice mails on Tarantino’s personal phone line. No one responded to any of the inquiries.


P.S. Remember to boycott Tarantino’s new movie, The Hateful Eight, which opens on Christmas Day.

Obama on gun violence: “Enough is Enough”

The murder of Tyshawn Lee, a 9-year-old boy murdered in an alley in Chiraq. What did Obama have to say about this act of gun violence? Nada. A shooting in Chiraq every 2 hours and 54 minutes? Nada from Obama.  There’s very strict gun control laws in Chiraq.

A record homicide rate in Baltimore this year. Nada from Obama. The Constitution of Maryland contains no provision protecting the right for individuals to keep and bear arms. 

A shooting at a Planned Parenthood facility with no known motive (at the time I write this post*)? Obama denounces gun violence.

Obama makes gun gesture

Never let a crisis, that suits your narrative, go to waste.

Via Yahoo: US President Barack Obama denounced the country’s epidemic of gun violence on Saturday and renewed a call for tougher controls on military-style weapons after yet another deadly shooting, saying “enough is enough.”

Obama said the suspect had been armed with an assault weapon — that was the first official word of this detail — and he also disclosed for the first time that the man had held hostages at the Planned Parenthood center from which he opened fire at people outside in an hours long standoff with police.

We have to do something about the easy accessibility of weapons of war on our streets to people who have no business wielding them. Period. Enough is enough,” Obama said in a statement.

Notice the Alinsky tactics used in his words: “tougher controls on military-style weapons”, “armed with an assault weapon”, and “easy accessibility of weapons of war”. I don’t need to spell out the intentional misrepresentation of his words. If I do, then you are a liberal.

Seems that the progressive media machine has set out to follow Obama’s narrative as well. Check out the headlines below that followed the shooting.

Colorado shooter Robert Dear

Colorado shooter Robert Dear

MintPressNews: “White Americans Are The Biggest Terror Threat In The United States.”

Vox: “Police described the suspect as a stocky, bearded white male wearing a trench coat. He was reportedly armed with a “long gun.” The FBI warned of threats to reproductive health facilities this past September, in the wake of graphic sting videos that purported to show Planned Parenthood selling fetal body parts for profit.”

The Guardian: “Colorado Springs: a playground for pro-life, pro-gun evangelical Christians“.

HuffPo: “Terror in Colorado”. “Police have yet to determine a motive for the attack, but Colorado Springs Mayor John Suthers said that people can make “inferences from where it took place…The town also has a big evangelical presence, partly due to an economic development effort to bring Christian missionaries there in the 1980s, according to PBS.”

Slate: “Anti-Abortion Terrorism Must Be Stopped.” “As news continues to unfold about Friday’s Planned Parenthood shooting in Colorado Springs, one thing is clear: Domestic terrorism remains unchecked, even on the day after Thanksgiving.”

The Guardian: “Our culture and laws enabled the Colorado shooter, whatever his motive.”

crisis go to waste


*As of 6:30 last night, Wesley Lowery of the Washington Post was tweeting that after surrendering to police, Dear was heard to say, “No more baby parts,” an obvious reference to the series of undercover Planned Parenthood videos released by the Center for Medical Progress.

That doesn’t change the fact that the above statements/reports were made before a motive was known (if indeed this WaPo tweet is true). Nor does it change the fact that Obama can’t be bothered to acknowledge gun violence that is rampant in cities with strict gun control.


Nationwide Media Blackout on Amazon’s Ban of ‘Nobody Died at Sandy Hook’

Dr. Eowyn:

Add to the nationwide media blackout the fact that Alex Jones’ InfoWars took down its post on’s suppression of Nobody Died at Sandy Hook. See:

Originally posted on Memory Hole:

On November 21 a press release reproduced below announcing’s censorship of Nobody Died at Sandy Hook was sent to almost 23,000 news media outlets by Sherwood Ross Associates, a Miami Florida-based public relations firm.

Thus far almost without exception the press release has been ignored, bannedbooksrepresenting a wall-to-wall media blackout of the retail powerhouse’s incredible act of prior restraint-style suppression.

Further, journalists at those very media now have an opportunity to download the book for free and judge the validity of the research for themselves.

A feminist’s recipe for sour dough bread (not recommended for those with a weak stomach)

I don’t recall how I happened upon this story…and I’m almost sorry I did. Yet it is an example of the lengths feminists will go to seek attention and to prove just how whacky they are.

WARNING: This is not for the faint of heart. Do not continue reading this post if you are eating or just ate. TRUST ME.






get any worse

There’s a woman by the name of Zoe Starvi who, according to her Twitter bio, is an Anarchist. Feminist. Queer. All angry. One of the nastiest trolls on here (apparently) She/her/hers. Views not representative of anywhere I work, obvs“.

On November 25th she tweeted out the following: “Baking and eating 

The hashtag alone should give you notice to proceed with caution (and an empty stomach).

The Daily Mail caught this tweet and reported on the aftermath it caused on Twitter. Here’s the story (your last warning!):

I don't think I'll ever be able to eat sourdough bread again...

I don’t think I’ll ever be able to eat sourdough bread again…

When a feminist blogger found herself suffering from a vaginal yeast infection, she made the unusual decision to use the unwanted bodily fluid as an ingredient for making bread.

Zoe Stavri, who writes under the title Another Angry Woman, has documented the details of her unusual baking experiment on social media and it’s caused something of a furor (shocker, not).

The feminist, who admits to having a ‘slightly perverse sense of humor’ and a ‘keenly scientific mind’, realized she was suffering from the yeast infection. Rather than resolve the issue with conventional treatment she would make the most of the additional yeast she was producing.

Using a sex aid to retrieve the yeast from her vagina, Stavri used it as a base ingredient for sour-dough, a loaf which often takes several days for the ‘starter’ dough to ferment. The experimental baker added her self-made ingredient to flour and water and then watched as the fermentation process began, taking pictures along the way.

Here’s her review of the final product:

“It tasted like a pretty damn nice sourdough bread. Not the tangiest sourdough I’ve ever eaten, but solidly tasty. I really, really liked it. After having a little bite, I ate a slice with butter. The bread was still slightly warm and the butter soaked in and it was absolutely heavenly. A lot of people on the internet seem to be under the impression it would taste like cunt. Of course it fucking didn’t. The only thing that really tastes like pussy is pussy. Given that this is a loaf of bread, obviously it didn’t taste like pussy. Learn biology, buddy.”

I cannot go into any more detail without wanting to throw up. If you feel so inclined to review the whole process, read her blog here.

If you are thinking of trying this recipe for your next family meal – don’t. HuffPo UK spoke with Dr Helen Webberley from Oxford Online Pharmacy who issued a few words of caution. She told HuffPost UK: “While moulds and funguses have been used in cooking for years, we should never consider eating anything that could contain human genetic material. The vagina hosts numerous bacteria and organisms, some of which can be infective. This is clearly a health hazard.



Michael Moore, who owns 9 homes, invites 1 Syrian “refugee” family to occupy tiny apartment

This is a follow-up to DCG’s post, “Michael Moore says Syrian Refugees are Welcome in His Home“.


On November 20, 2015, obese One-Percenter director of faux documentaries Michael Moore penned a letter on his Facebook page to Michigan’s Republican governor Rick Snyder in which Moore said he would welcome Syrian refugees into his home.

Moore gave “his home” as a “700-sq. ft. apartment in northern Michigan,” which, though “a little small, but it’s got cable, wi-fi and a new dishwasher!”

Now, Moore has followed up on his letter with an invitation to one Syrian family to occupy his “700-sq. ft. apartment in northern Michigan,” rent free, for six months.

I’m not kidding about this. I’m making my apartment in Michigan available, rent-free, for six months to a year until the Syrian family gets settled and is doing well on their own. My family came here from Ireland in the 1800s. I know what it was like for them. There was bigotry and harassment — but there were also those who held out a helping hand. That I would have the chance to do the same thing for a new family of immigrants 150 years later is an honor. (Besides, legend has it that St. Patrick was originally from Syria/Lebanon — so I’m just passing on the green!)

I’ve written to Secretary of State John Kerry informing him that my home is available to place a Syrian couple. I’ve also asked him to please speed up the process of admitting these refugees (it’s taking 18 to 24 months right now, and that’s unacceptable).

I’m asking anyone who can, anyone who has spare rooms in their homes or an empty apartment, cottage, or whatever, to make it available for Syrian and Iraqi refugees for between six months and a year while they’re being settled in the U.S. If you can do this, would you please click here and sign up on the #MyHomeIsOpen registry. Your name and contact info will be kept private and will only be shared with the appropriate refugee agencies sanctioned and overseen by the Obama administration and its participating NGOs. They will contact you when they have refugees that they’ve vetted and need to be placed in homes.

THIS is what we want the “American way” to be from now on. No more war, or interfering in other people’s lives, no more turning our backs on the messes that we’ve created.

Thanks for joining with me in this effort. We are, indeed, our brothers’ and sisters’ keepers. I can think of no better way to celebrate Thanksgiving and the holidays this year than by helping those who are suffering from the mistakes that have been made in our name.

All my best,
Michael Moore
Great-grandson of refugees and immigrants

What the sanctimonious Moore — whose net worth is estimated to be $50 million, earned from documentaries railing against capitalism — neglects to inform all those Syrian and Iraqi “refugees,” as well as “useful idiot” Americans, is that the “700-sq. ft. apartment” is only one of his many real estate properties.

According to The Smoking Gun in 2014, Moore’s real estate holdings included a total of nine properties in Michigan and New York, one of which is a Manhattan condo that was created through the combination of three separate units.

Another is luxurious “vacation home” near the top 1% of home values in affluent Forest Home Township, Torch Lake, northern Michigan. The 10,000-sq. ft. home was assessed in 2011 to be worth close to $1 million, but the real worth is more like $2 million. Here’s a pic:

Here’s an aerial view of the mansion:

In August 2015, Moore listed the luxury home at 222 S. East Torch Lake Drive for sale at $5.2 million.
