Pervert who identifies as 8-year-old-girl defends child porn collection

The video above is from two months ago and doesn’t mention the pervert’s claim that he identifies as an eight-year-old girl.

WZZM reports this week that the pervert will spend at least a decade in prison for dozens of images of child pornography found on his home computer.

The perp, Joseph Gobrick, 45, claimed the images were computer-animated and protected under the First Amendment.

“I’ve always been an 8-year-old girl,’’ Gobrick said at sentencing. “And even my drawings and fantasies, I am always an 8-year-old girl.’’

Turns out the images were all computer-animated: Police said they identified eight victims.

The perp is also a convicted sex offender from New York. He was arrested in 2018 after a 17-year-old Ohio girl listed as endangered/missing was found at his Grand Rapids home. I have no idea why this guy was allowed to run free after those incidents.

Read the whole story disgusting story here.

Well, I have a couple ideas that all start with demorat-promoted beliefs, namely the concept that one can change their gender.

I mean, if you can change your gender and become “gender fluid,” why can’t you identify as a different age? Can’t you just be who you feeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeel your true self is born to be?

If demorats are REALLY serious about protecting children, they’d stop promoting mental illnesses which ultimately cause the most harm to children.

God’s Creation: 17 y.o. NASA intern discovers circumbinary planet 1,300 light-years from Earth

A 17-year-old student, Wolf Cukier from Scarsdale High School in New York, was just three days into a summer internship at NASA’s Goddard’s Space Flight Center in Goddard, Md., when he made a remarkable discovery that should make us lift our heads from our human disposition of navel-gazing, look up in wonderment, and realize how puny we and Earth are in the unimaginably vast Universe.

Wolf Cukier

According to NASA, Cukier’s “job was to examine variations in star brightness captured by NASA’s Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS) and uploaded to the Planet Hunters TESS citizen science project.”

TESS monitors millions of stars with four cameras, which each take a full-frame image of a patch of the sky every 30 minutes for 27 days. Scientists use the observations to generate graphs of how the brightness of stars change over time. When a planet crosses in front of its star from our perspective, an event called a transit, its passage causes a distinct dip in the star’s brightness.

As recounted by Cukier:

I was looking through the data for everything the volunteers had flagged as an eclipsing binary, a system where two stars circle around each other and from our view eclipse each other every orbit. About three days into my internship, I saw a signal from a system called TOI 1338. At first I thought it was a stellar eclipse, but the timing was wrong. It turned out to be a planet.

TOI 1338 b, as it is now called, is TESS’s first circumbinary planet, a world orbiting two stars. NASA’s Kepler and K2 missions previously discovered 12 circumbinary planets in 10 solar systems, all similar to TOI 1338 b.

Circumbinary planets orbiting two stars are more difficult to detect than those orbiting one star. In the case of TOI 1338 b, it is even more difficult to detect because the planet’s transits are irregular, between every 93 and 95 days, and vary in depth and duration because of the orbital motion of the two stars it orbits. TESS only sees the transits crossing the larger star; the transits of the smaller star are too faint to detect. This explains why Cukier had to visually examine each potential transit.

The planet, TOI 1338 b, is the first circumbinary planet that has been spotted using TESS data. After eagle-eye Cukier notified NASA of what he saw, scientists used a software package called eleanor, named after Eleanor Arroway, the central character in Carl Sagan’s novel “Contact,” to confirm the transits were real and not a result of instrumental artifacts.

Around 6.9 times larger than Earth, or between the sizes of Neptune and Saturn, TOI 1338 b is the only known planet in its system, which lies 1,300 light-years away in the constellation Pictor.

A light-year, which measures distance in space, equals 6 trillion miles, which means TOI 1338 b is 7,800 trillion miles from our Earth.

The planet TOI 1338 b orbits in almost exactly the same plane as the stars, so it experiences regular stellar eclipses. The two stars orbit each other every 15 days. One is about 10% more massive than our Sun, while the other is cooler, dimmer and only one-third the Sun’s mass.

Cukier’s discovery was featured in a panel discussion on Monday, Jan. 6, at the 235th American Astronomical Society meeting in Honolulu. A paper Cukier co-authored with scientists from Goddard, San Diego State University, the University of Chicago and other institutions, has been submitted to a scientific journal.

However, Cukier will not get the opportunity to name his discovery. As he explains to the New York Post: “New planets discovered by TESS get a TOI number if they don’t have another significant name already.”

Bernie Sander’s effect on millennials: Doomsday, economic warfare and MASSIVE stupidity

I don’t know why I do this to myself. Sometimes I get on Twitter and peruse the tweets of Bernie Sanders supporters.

It’s hysterical at first, then dumbfounding and then you realize it’s really, really sad. It’s a reflection of our government indoctrination system and the cesspool that is social media.

It’s also a reflection, I think, of a couple other areas: 1) Demorat’s desire to be stuck in perpetual victimhood mode, 2) a lack of personal drive and responsibility for creating your own wealth and happiness, 3) a fanatical interest in being able to control how other people use their money and 4) when you combine the first three factors you have to come up with a fourth: envy.

So I stumbled upon the Twitter account the other night by a millennial who goes by the name of “electronic piss.”

Here’s her gem of a tweet: “2020 the year we make it completely socially unacceptable to stan/look up to people who are literally committing genocide by choosing not to redistribute their wealth.”

en

“Electronic piss” had retweeted a Time editor’s tweet with the following pictures and caption, “Nothing more needs to be said:”

Pro tip: Don’t go to the “electronic piss” Twitter timeline unless you are willing to read extremely sexual tweets and a serious amount of stupidity.

First of all, can you demorats pick a firm number of years for when we are to expire without a complete redistribution of everyone’s money? Is the world ending in 12 years or 20 before rich people cough up enough money for your scam? I’d like to mark the end date on my calendar, thanks.

Secondly, there’s a LOT of demorats on the list of the richest folk in the world. There’s even one white, demorat man running to be your president! Why aren’t you demanding those demorats give up all their monies in the name of your climate emergency cause?

Third: Since there’s a lot of Chinese people on that list of the evil rich who must redistribute their wealth to save the planet, when are you (and take that selective-mute Greta with you) going to go to Hong Kong to protest climate change?

If Bernie Sanders and his supporters truly believe in the “great planetary crisis we now face,” then how do they justify his owning three homes? By his “offsetting” carbon emissions?

Remember: Any answer given will be mental gymnastics because liberal logic isn’t designed to make sense.

Veterinarian says 4 Burger King meatless burgers a day will grow breasts on men

Burger King has a new artificial-meat Impossible Whopper, advertised as a plant-based, healthier alternative to the beef whopper.

But according to veterinarian James Stangle, DVM, what Burger King doesn’t tell you is that one Impossible Whopper contains 18 million times as much estrogen as the regular beef whopper. Eating four Impossible Whoppers a day will grow boobs on men.

Stangle is a large animal veterinarian in Milesville, South Dakota.

In an article for Tri-State Livestock News, Dr. Stangle writes:

  1. To begin, the impossible whopper patty is made from 24 ingredients, the most important of which is soy protein. The regular whopper patty has just one ingredient, beef. (See the list of ingredients in an impossible whopper patty here.)
  2. The impossible whopper has 44 mg of estrogen and the whopper has 2.5 ng of estrogen. Since there are 1 million nanograms (ng) in one milligram (mg), that means an impossible whopper has 18 million times as much estrogen as a regular hormone-implanted beef whopper.
  3. Six glasses of soy milk per day or four impossible whoppers have enough estrogen to grow boobs on a male.
  4. Nor is the impossible whopper healthier:
    • The impossible whopper (with 630 calories, mainly from added oils) has only 5% fewer calories than the whopper (with 660 calories).
    • The impossible whopper (22 grams) has 10 fewer grams of usable protein than the beef whopper (25 grams). (Protein consists of amino acids. Of the 20 amino acids, 9 are essential. Each of these 9 essential amino acids must meet a certain level to make a complete protein profile. An essential amino acid that does not hit the required amount is “rate limiting”. In beef the rate limiting amino acid is tryptophan, which is at 79% of the required level; in soy protein, however, the rate limiting amino acid is methionine, which is at 41% of the required level. In other words, you would have to eat 2¼ impossible whoppers to get the same protein in one whopper.)
    • The impossible whopper contains a genetically-modified organism (GMO) — leghemoglobin. Leghemoglobin mimics the hemoglobin that gives beef its red color. To make enough leghemoglobin to add to the impossible whopper, scientists spliced the gene for leghemoglobin into yeast, which is then added to the impossible whopper.

It should be pointed out that:

(1) Dr. Stangle is writing for a meat website, Tri-State Livestock News, which calls itself “a leading publication within the livestock industry” and thus has a vested interest in promoting beef against Burger King’s meatless burger.

(2) Stangle provides no sources for his many claims, including the alarming assertion that men will grow breasts from drinking six glasses of soy milk or eating four Burger King impossible whoppers a day.

It turns out the claim about six glasses of soy milk comes from an “unusual” clinical case of a 60-year-old man who developed breasts (gynecomastia) from drinking 3 quarts (twelve 8-oz cups) of soy milk a day. After he discontinued drinking soy milk, his gynecomastia decreased and the estrogen in his  body slowly returned to normal. (See J. Martinez and J.E. Lewi, “An unusual case of gynecomastia associated with soy product consumption,” Endocrine Practice, 14:4, May-June 2008, pp. 415-418.)

According to an article about the impossible burger by Paul Kita in Men’s Health:

[I]n the 2000’s a few small studies and rodent studies appeared to show that compounds within soy called phytoestrogens might disrupt hormones, which could lead to low sperm count and man boobs.

Several news outlets (including this one), may have overblown those findings. “Such a link has never been substantiated in human studies,” says Qi Sun, M.D. assistant professor in the Department of Nutrition at Harvard, told Men’s Health in October 2018. “I don’t think this is a concern at all.”

In fact, men who consumed diets that included soy had a 29 percent reduced risk of developing prostate cancer, according to a 2018 meta-analysis published in the journal Nutrients.

High-tech, tobacco and junk-food manufacturers don’t use their own products

What does it say when the founder, owner or CEO of a company makes it a point not to use the company’s product?

Reporting for Popular Science (via pocket), Eleanor Cummins calls the actions of these CEOs “an important bellwether — a sign of problems consumers may not even know they’re facing.” According to Cummins:

From tobacco to food manufacturing to social media, executives and insiders are subtly sounding the alarm in actions, if not in words. Their behaviors provide insight not just into the risks of certain consumer products to children, but to adults, too….

Plenty of executives believe wholeheartedly in products that are clearly dangerous or, at best, a waste of money (think supplements, activated charcoal, or fad diets). But…many more executives use their insider knowledge to make different personal choices than the ones they promote to the public. Like the canaries in the coal mines of their own creation, when the CEO squawks, we should listen.

The following are some striking examples:

(1) High tech and social media:

  • The late Steve Jobs, who founded Apple Inc., forebade his kids to use the iPad or any other product their dad invented. According to a 2014 report by Nick Bilton of The New York Times, and Walter Isaacson, author of the definitive biography Steve Jobs, Jobs’ family was low-tech. Jobs said his children “haven’t used it [the iPad]. We limit how much technology our kids use at home.” Every night, the family had a phone-free dinner together, and his children were not “addicted at all to devices.” 
  • Another software executive said he’d “seen the dangers of technology firsthand,” from bullying to tech addiction, and wanted to protect his children from those experiences.
  • In 2017, Microsoft founder Bill Gates revealed he had both age and habit-related rules for his three children. Gates told The Mirror: “We don’t have cellphones at the table when we are having a meal. We didn’t give our kids [cell phones] until they were 14 and they complained other kids got them earlier.” Gates said that although smartphones and related devices were useful for “homework and staying in touch with friends,” they had the potential for “excess.”
  • Mike McCue, founder of Flipboard, said of social media during a 2017 appearance on the Recode Decode podcast: “It’s like if you ate potato chips all day long. You have to have a balanced information diet. There’s nothing wrong with looking at Facebook. If that’s all you do then you’re just going to be a product of that.”
  • Former Google employee Tristan Harris and his colleagues at the Center for Humane Technology gray out their smart phones’ screens and turn off all (or all non-essential) notifications.
According to a 2018 analysis by the Pew Research Institute, 45% of teens said they were “online on a near-constant basis”. Today, the average American gets their first phone at age 10, and spends 5 hours a day on their phone. That translates, according to one analysis, to touching, swiping, and tapping our phones 2,000 times a day, between getting up and going back to sleep. 

(2) Tobacco executives:

  • Susan Cameron, former CEO of Reynolds American that makes Camel cigarettes, stopped smoking “conventional cigarettes” more than 15 years ago and turned instead to electronic cigarettes, which some believe are a healthier, though no less addictive, alternative.
  • David Crow, then the managing director of tobacco company BAT Australia, regularly warned his children to avoid the very products he made, according to a 2011 report in The Sydney Morning Herald. Crow said: “It’s bad for you. It says it on the pack. I’ve got a 13-year-old, an 11-year-old and a seven-year-old and if they smoke I tell them absolutely, categorically, ‘Do not smoke’.”

(3) Junk food manufacturers:

In his 2013 book Salt Sugar Fat, Michael Moss documented the ways in which food manufacturers hacked our taste buds and designed snacks, sodas, and other grub that keep us “hooked.” There is a class issue at work in processed foods, in which the inventors and company executives don’t generally partake in their own creations. Publicly, these companies have broadcast their efforts as a boon to convenience, satisfaction, and savings—despite mounting health concerns. But privately, many junk food executives and their families avoided their own products, including:

  • Bob Drane, the creator of Lunchables, argues that the pre-packaged snacks save parents time, and that the benefits outweigh the health problems. But Drane’s daughter, Monica, doesn’t allow her children anywhere near Lunchables. She calls Lunchables “junky” and “awful” and said although her children know Grandpa Bob invented them, “we eat very healthfully.” Lunchables contains 13 teaspoons of sugar and two-thirds of the daily recommended sodium intake for children. Still, Drane has come to believe that his industry—if not the Lunchables product specifically—should acknowledge its accountability for issues like childhood obesity, one of several causes he’s taken up as a volunteer.
  • Howard Moskowitz, who led the effort to develop Cherry Vanilla Dr Pepper, said: “I’m not a soda drinker. It’s not good for your teeth.” When goaded by a reporter to take a sip of Cherry Vanilla Dr Pepper, Moskowitz called the drink “terrible” and “overwhelming.”

Chinese scientists play God: First ever pig-monkey hybrids

John Lucas reports for The Sun, Dec. 6, 2019, that Chinese scientists have produced the world’s first monkey-pig hybrids, which could pave the way for human organs grown by animals. Beijing-based Tang Hai said: “This is the first report of full-term pig-monkey chimeras.”

The groundbreaking experiment produced hybrids with hearts, livers, spleens, lungs and skin containing pig and primate cells. Stem cells from macaque monkeys were grown in a lab and then injected into pig embryos five days after fertilization. Of more than 4,000 implanted in sows, ten piglets were born. But only two were chimeras and both died in a week.

University of California stem cell biologist Paul Knoepfler said: “Given the extremely low chimeric efficiency and the deaths of all the animals, I see this as fairly discouraging.”

The piglets, known as moinkeys, had organs with monkey cells in a very low ratio. A similar US experiment in 2017 using pig and human DNA developed embryos for only a month amid fears the brain may be partly human.

Some demorats missed the message from Florida Keys: As seas rise and flooding gets worse, not everyone can be saved

The “climate crisis” hysteria has reached peak levels.

According to a story from Yahoo, “Officials in the Florida Keys announced what many coastal governments nationwide have long feared, but few have been willing to admit: As seas rise and flooding gets worse, not everyone can be saved. And in some places, it doesn’t even make sense to try.

The article explains how the county’s sustainability director released the first results of the county’s yearslong effort to calculate how high its 300 miles of roads must be elevated to stay dry, and at what cost. Those costs were far higher than her team expected — and those numbers, the director said, show that some places can’t be protected, at least at a price that taxpayers can be expected to pay.

It’s ALWAYS about getting the taxpayer money, isn’t it?

You can read all about the doomsday predictions here.

Yet SOME demorats – the really, REALLY RICH ones – missed the memo about rising sea levels and flooding. Just take a look at the following headlines:

George Lucas Buys $28 Million Beachfront Home in Carpinteria, California
Barack and Michelle Obama Just Paid $11.75 Million for a Martha’s Vineyard Waterfront Vacation Home
Mark Zuckerberg spent almost $60 million on 2 waterfront estates in Tahoe last winter. Here’s a look at the 10 properties he owns across the US, from a modest Palo Alto home to a Hawaiian plantation
Oprah has yet to visit her Orcas Island (waterfront) estate, but it may soon undergo remodel

Amber Valletta: Another environmental hypocrite joining Hanoi Jane in her PR stunts

Amber Valletta speaking about our climate emergency

Last Friday Hanoi Jane posted pics of her and other hypocrites protesting climate change in DC. Included in her latest stunt was model and actress Amber Valletta (supporter of Obama). The caption from Hanoi Jane’s photo of Amber and her cohorts:

“Reposted from @firedrillfriday Today we made it clear: water justice is climate justice. We must stop current attacks on regulations that protect water, and instead update and expand them. We must stop fossil fuel extraction, including fracking, that contaminates far too much of the precious fresh water we have. We must invest in Green New Deal infrastructure projects that provide food union jobs to build the systems we need to adapt to a climate changed world and ensure clean safe water for all.”

Fonda and fellow libtards flying via private jet in 2018 to promote a movie

Don’t forget that this comes from the hypocritical Hanoi Jane who just last year was still flying via private jet and who partners with an online fundraising platform that gives away gas-guzzling cars and air travel packages.

Anyhow…the model Amber is just as hypocritical as her buddy Hanoi Jane.

Amber promoting flying for the global fashion community

Just three years ago (apparently before Amber was aware of any climate crisis) she partnered with Etihad Airways to promote the special A380 aircraft with the goal of Etihad becoming the airline of choice for the global fashion community. You know, for the ones who need to fly around the world to attend all the really important fashion shows.

Amber believes that we are in such a “climate emergency” that she somehow (via donkey, horse or solar-powered boat?) was able to travel from her Los Angeles home to attend these events:

September 2019: Etihad Airways NYFW Cocktail in NYC (Even in this “climate emergency” Amber is STILL promoting the airline for the global fashion community. Must be a nice-paying gig.)
September 2019: Valentino fashion show in Paris
September 2019: Milan fashion week in Italy
June 2019: CFDA Fashion Awards in NYC
May 2019: Met Gala in NYC
April 2019: Fashion Institute of Technology and the FIT Foundation annual awards gala in NYC

And I’m sure there are plenty more events she attended that were hidden from my searches once the algorithm figured out my specific search.

Typical Hollyweird Hypocrite.

TV interviews lifelike robot

This is our present, folks.

Imagine what robots will be in 20 years.

“This Morning With Phillip & Holly” is a British daytime television program broadcast on ITV.

Sophia is a humanoid robot developed by Hong Kong based company Hanson Robotics. Sophia was activated on February 14, 2016, and made her first public appearance at South by Southwest Festival (SXSW) in mid-March 2016 in Austin, Texas, United States. She is able to display more than 50 facial expressions.

Sophia has been covered by media around the globe and has participated in many high-profile interviews. In October 2017, Sophia became the first robot to receive citizenship of any country. In November 2017, Sophia became the first non-human to be given a United Nations title — the UN Development Program’s first ever Innovation Champion. Around January 2018. Sophia was upgraded with functional legs and the ability to walk.

Sophia can follow faces, sustain eye contact, and recognize individuals. Able to answer certain questions and to make simple conversations on predefined topics, Sophia is designed to get smarter over time.

David Hanson modeled Sophia after actress Audrey Hepburn, although to me, the robot more resembles the actress Jennifer Lawrence. Hanson designed Sophia to be a suitable companion for the elderly at nursing homes, or to help crowds at large events or parks. He hopes that the robot can ultimately interact with other humans sufficiently to gain social skills.

Hanson Robotcs also created nine other robot humanoids: Alice, Albert Einstein Hubo, BINA48, Han, Jules, Professor Einstein, Philip K. Dick Android, Zeno, and Joey Chaos.
