You Can Sexually Assault A Woman In New VR Video Game (Vid Incl)

TeleSur News   Posted Tues., Aug.30, 2016

As the original #GamerGate fiasco proved, sexism and misogyny is frighteningly rife in video game culture. But a new game, set to launch in October in Asia, will make this degradation available in a more visceral form: virtual reality.

While gamers have long been able to sleep with and then murder sex workers in the game “Grand Theft Auto,” “Dead or Alive Xtreme 3,” a PlayStation virtual reality game, players can grope a woman avatar even while she verbally expresses her lack of consent.

As Engadget reported, she can be found saying “I don’t like it” and a word that translates to both “bad” and “often used to flatly deny permission.”

In a video of a man testing out the game, he can be seen using his controller to grope the woman’s body, despite both her non-consensual body language and verbal denial.

While the game isn’t coming to the Western hemisphere, the company behind the game, Koei Tecmo Games, has said it panders to its global audience.

In response to the rightful backlash, the company has responded by saying they “only reflect that individual’s opinion” and that it will “remain focused on delivering the best in fighting entertainment to our fans around the world, while consciously respecting and strategizing to support the different global audiences the Dead or Alive franchise lends itself to.”

US Candidates, Please Tell Us Why We Are At War!

War is a racket2

AntiWar News    Posted Mon., Aug.29, 2016

When I was a kid, successive presidents told us we had to fight in Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos, because if we didn’t fight them over there, we’d have to fight them on the beaches of California. We believed. It was a lie.

I was a teenager during the Cold War, several presidents told us we needed to create massive stockpiles of nuclear weapons, garrison the world, maybe invade Cuba, fight covert wars and use the CIA to overthrow democratically elected governments and replace them with dictators, or the Russians would destroy us. We believed. It was a lie.

When I was in college our president told us that we needed to fight in El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua or the Sandinistas would come to the United States. He told us Managua was closer to Washington DC than LA was. He told us we needed to fight in Lebanon, Grenada and Libya to protect ourselves. We believed. It was a lie.

When I was a little older our president told us how evil Saddam Hussein was, how his soldiers bayoneted babies in Kuwait. He told us Saddam was a threat to America. He told us we needed to invade Panama to oust a dictator to protect America. We believed. It was a lie.

Another president told us we had to fight terrorists in Somalia, as well as bomb Iraq, to protect ourselves. We believed. It was a lie.

The one after him told us that because a bunch of Saudis from a group loosely tied to Afghanistan attacked us on 9/11, we needed to occupy that country and destroy the Taliban, who had not attacked us, for our own safety. The Taliban are still there 15 years later, and so is the American army. We believed. It was a lie.

After that the same President told us Saddam Hussein threatened every one of our children with weapons of mass destruction, that the smoking gun would be a mushroom cloud, that Saddam was in league with al Qaeda. We believed. It was a lie.

In 2011 the president and his secretary of state, now running for president herself, told us we needed regime change in Libya, to protect us from an evil dictator. We believed. It was a lie.

In August 2014 the same president told us we needed to intervene again in Iraq, on a humanitarian mission to save the Yazidis. No boots on the ground, a simple, limited act only the United States could conduct, and then we’d leave. We believed. It was a lie.

That same president later told us Americans will need to fight and die in Syria. He says this is necessary to protect us, because if we do not defeat Islamic State over there, they will come here, to what we now call without shame or irony The Homeland. We believe. We’ll let history roll around again to tell it is again a lie.

The two main candidates for president both tell us they will expand the war in Syria, maybe Libya. Too many of our fellow citizens still want to believe it is necessary to protect America more. They want to know it is not a lie.

So candidates, please explain why what you plan is different than everything listed above. Tell us why we should believe you – this time.

“I Didn’t Think Of Iraqis As Human” – US Soldier Rapes 14 yr Old Girl And Kills Her Family

Soldier rapes 14 yr

Whatsupic News     Posted Mon., Aug.29, 2016

An Iraq War veteran serving five life terms for raping and killing a 14-year-old Iraqi girl and killing her parents and sister says he didn’t think of Iraqi civilians as humans after being exposed to extreme warzone violence.

Steven Green, (pic above) a former 101st Airborne soldier, in his first interview since the 2006 killings, claimed that his crimes were fuelled in part by experiences in Iraq’s violent ‘Triangle of Death’ where two of his sergeants were gunned down.

He also cited a lack of leadership and help from the Army.

‘I was crazy,’ Green said in the exclusive telephone interview from federal prison in Tucson, Arizona. ‘I was just all the way out there. I didn’t think I was going to live.’

Green talked about what led up to the March 12, 2006, attack on a family near Mahmoudiya, Iraq, that left him serving five consecutive life sentences.

The former soldier, who apologised at sentencing for his crimes, said he wasn’t seeking sympathy nor trying to justify his actions – killings prosecutors described at trial in 2009 as one of the worst crimes of the Iraq war.

But Green said people should know his actions were a consequence of his circumstances in a war zone.

‘If I hadn’t ever been in Iraq, I wouldn’t be in the kind of trouble I’m in now,’ Green said. ‘I’m not happy about that.’

Green was discharged with a ‘personality disorder’ before federal charges were brought against him.

Prosecutors sought a death sentence, but a federal jury in Paducah, Kentucky, opted for five life sentences on charges including the rape and murder of 14-year-old Abeer Qassim Al-Janabi and the shooting deaths of her mother, father and younger sister.

Four other soldiers were convicted in military court for various roles in the attack. Three remain in military prison.

Green is challenging the Military Extraterritorial Jurisdiction Act, which allows the federal government to charge an American in civilian court for alleged crimes committed overseas. He was the first former soldier convicted under the statute. The U.S. 6th Circuit Court of Appeals has scheduled arguments for January 21.

Green is challenging the constitutionality of that law, saying it gives the executive branch too much leeway over whom to prosecute. Prosecutors say the law should be upheld.

‘I’ve got some hope, but I’m not delusional about it,’ said Green, now 25. ‘I hope it works. But, whenever they give you multiple life sentences, they’re not planning on letting you out.’

Green didn’t testify at trial. During sentencing, he apologized and said he expects to face ‘God’s justice’ when he dies.

7 Deadly Sins As Viewed in Literature And Society & 7 Detestable Sins According To The Bible

Greed money

Posted by r. a.   Sun., Aug.28, 2016

I was at the beach yesterday with some friends and we were discussing – dare I say it – whether the earth was a globe or flat. Eventually, the discussion evolved into the cardinal sins as viewed in society and in the bible. At one time, we had these memorized, but we couldn’t think of all seven. This is the reason for this post. Hopefully, it will interest you or, at the least, be regarded as informative. Peace and blessings to all who love the truth and hate the lie. (r. a. note)

The seven deadly sins as viewed by society and literature

(1) Lust – to have an intense desire or need: “But I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart” (Matthew 5:28).

(2) Gluttony – excess in eating and drinking: “for drunkards and gluttons become poor, and drowsiness clothes them in rags” (Proverbs 23:21).

(3) Greed – excessive or reprehensible acquisitiveness: “Having lost all sensitivity, they have given themselves over to sensuality so as to indulge in every kind of impurity, with a continual lust for more” (Ephesians 4:19).

(4) Laziness – disinclined to activity or exertion: not energetic or vigorous: “The way of the sluggard is blocked with thorns, but the path of the upright is a highway” (Proverbs 15:19).

(5) Wrath – strong vengeful anger or indignation: “A gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger” (Proverbs 15:1)

(6) Envy – painful or resentful awareness of an advantage enjoyed by another joined with a desire to possess the same advantage: “Therefore, rid yourselves of all malice and all deceit, hypocrisy, envy, and slander of every kind. Like newborn babies, crave pure spiritual milk, so that by it you may grow up in your salvation” (1 Peter 2:1-2).

(7) Pride – quality or state of being proud – inordinate self esteem: “Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall” (Proverbs 16:18).

The seven detestable sins according to the Bible

“There are six things the Lord hates, seven that are detestable to him:

(1) haughty ( arrogant, scornful) eyes (2) a lying tongue (3) hands that shed innocent blood (4) a heart that devises wicked schemes (5) feet that are quick to rush into evil (6) a false witness who pours out lies and (7) a man who stirs up dissension among brothers” (Proverbs 6:16-19).

Judge Upholds California State Law Requiring Child Vaccinations In All Schools

Vaccine check point

SF Gate News   By Bob Egelko     Posted Sat., Night, Aug.27, 2016

A federal judge refused Friday to block California’s new vaccination law, which requires children in public and private schools to be inoculated against 10 contagious illnesses and eliminates an exemption based on their parents’ personal beliefs.

“Society has a compelling interest in fighting the spread of contagious diseases through mandatory vaccination of school-age children,” U.S. District Judge Dana Sabraw of San Diego said in denying an injunction against enforcement of the law, sought by 17 parents and four antivaccine organizations.

The right to freely practice one’s religion, one of the rights invoked by opponents of the new law, “does not outweigh the state’s interest in public health and safety,” Sabraw said.

California is one of three states that require all schoolchildren to be vaccinated …regardless of their parents’ religious or personal opposition. The only exceptions are for students with doctor-certified medical exemptions and for disabled students in individual education programs.

While the law says that all children must be vaccinated, it requires parents to provide immunization records only when a student is entering kindergarten or the seventh grade.

That means an elementary-school student with a previous parental exemption does not need to be vaccinated until the seventh grade, and students in the eighth grade or higher with a past exemption won’t require any vaccinations.

Plaintiffs in the lawsuit say 33,000 students in California whose parents oppose vaccinations are enrolling in either kindergarten or the seventh grade and will be denied enrollment unless they agree to be vaccinated.

State Sen. Richard Pan, D-Sacramento, sponsor of the vaccine law, praised the ruling and said that “our schools are already becoming safer” because of the strengthened vaccination requirement.

Attorney Kim Mack Rosenberg said the plaintiffs would appeal. “All children in California deserve to receive the education that is their guaranteed right,” a right they will lose if the vaccination law is enforced, she said.

Israeli Think Tank: Don’t Destroy ISIS – It’s A “Useful Tool” Against Iran, Syria, Hezbollah and Russia

israel-first

I abbreviated the following article. Full story at link. (r. a. note)

Information Clearing House  By Ben Norton  Posted Thurs., Aug.25, 2016

“Salon” – According to a think tank that does contract work for NATO and the Israeli government, the West should not destroy ISIS, the fascist Islamist extremist group that is committing genocide and ethnically cleansing minority groups in Syria and Iraq.

Why? The so-called Islamic State “can be a useful tool in undermining” Iran, Hezbollah, Syria and Russia, argues the think tank’s director.

“The continuing existence of IS serves a strategic purpose,” wrote Efraim Inbar in “The Destruction of Islamic State Is a Strategic Mistake,” a paper published on Aug. 2.

By cooperating with Russia to fight the genocidal extremist group, the United States is committing a “strategic folly” that will “enhance the power of the Moscow-Tehran-Damascus axis,” Inbar argued, implying that Russia, Iran and Syria are forming a strategic alliance to dominate the Middle East.

“The West should seek the further weakening of Islamic State, but not its destruction,” he added. “A weak IS is, counter-intuitively, preferable to a destroyed IS.”

Inbar, an influential Israeli scholar, is the director of the Begin-Sadat Center for Strategic Studies, a think tank that says its mission is to advance “a realist, conservative, and Zionist agenda in the search for security and peace for Israel.”

The think tank, known by its acronym BESA, is affiliated with Israel’s Bar Ilan University and has been supported by the Israeli government, the NATO Mediterranean Initiative, the U.S. embassy in Israel and the Carnegie Council for Ethics in International Affairs.

BESA also says it “conducts specialized research on contract to the Israeli foreign affairs and defense establishment, and for NATO.”

In his paper, Inbar suggested that it would be a good idea to prolong the war in Syria, which has destroyed the country, killing hundreds of thousands of people and displacing more than half the population.

As for the argument that defeating ISIS would make the Middle East more stable, Inbar maintained: “Stability is not a value in and of itself. It is desirable only if it serves our interests.”

David M. Weinberg, director of public affairs at the BESA Center … defended his colleague’s (Inbar’s) argument and referred to ISIS as a “useful idiot.” He called the U.S. nuclear deal with Iran “rotten” and argued that Iran and Russia pose a “far greater threat than the terrorist nuisance of Islamic State.”

Please note: This video is not meant to set a date, but to point out that an ecumenical gathering, one of the largest and longest between the three monotheist faiths, will happen from September 4-23, 2016. This appears to coincide with the Arch of Triumph, which will be erected in New York City from approximately September 11-26, 2016.

On September 4-23rd, 2016, a major event will occur in the Old City of Jerusalem. It will bring together actors, artists, musicians, and persons in media from around the world.

Leaders from Roman Catholic, Muslim, and Jewish communities will gather for one of the largest and longest interfaith services in world history, right in the old city of Jerusalem. The service will combine the three monotheistic faiths under one roof in a house of worship for all believers. (intro note by C. Ervana)

Legendary Underground Nazi Gold Train Tunnel Confirmed By Explorers.

Nazi Gold Train Tunnel

TASS (Russian News Agency)   Posted Wed., Aug.24, 2016

WARSAW, /TASS/. A group of explorers who have begun searching for a legendary Nazi “gold train” in Poland have confirmed the existence of an underground tunnel at the excavation site, Andrzej Galik, the exploration team’s spokesman, has said.

“All the companies that take part in the excavations have confirmed our information on the ‘gold train’s’ location. Despite some discrepancies resulting from that fact that every firm is using its own equipment, all the data confirms the existence of an underground tunnel at a place, which we have designated,” another explorer said.

The so-called Nazi “gold train” concerns a local legend of up to three Nazi German-era trains buried underground in Lower Silesia in January 1945 toward the end of World War II.

The area, which is now part of southwest Poland, was then part of southeast Germany. The train(s) are believed to be near the Polish city of Wa·brzych, which until 1945 was the German city of Waldenburg. The train(s) are rumored to hold up to 300 tons of gold, jewels, weapons, and masterpieces.

Nazi GoldA group of explorers started a search for the “gold train” on the 65th kilometer of the Wroclaw-Walbrzych railroad on Tuesday. They are using excavators, bulldozers and ground-penetrating radars for excavation works. The explorers are planning to make three deep digs for a start.

The first information about the train’s possible location appeared in Poland about a year ago. The talk was about a 150-meter-long train with artillery guns installed on the platforms. The train carriages could be laden with industrial materials, precious metals and apparently gold in bars.

According to unconfirmed reports, the train left Breslau (now Wroc·aw) laden with gold and other treasures. The Nazis drove it into a tunnel under the Owl Mountains in a bid to save it from Soviet air strikes.

What is true is that having left Wroclaw for Wa·brzych, the train never reached its final destination. It disappeared without a trace.

According to historians, it has never been proven the train has ever existed. Fruitless searches were carried out in Poland under the Communist rule.

Daring Putin: US Invades Syria – “Ready To Down Syrian And Russian Planes”

USA Troops

Russian Insider By Eric Zuesse   Posted Tues., Aug.23, 2016

On Monday, August 22nd, the United States government — which demands the overthrow of the internationally-recognized-as-legal government of Syria — officially announced that America’s military forces in Syria will continue to occupy Syrian land, no matter what the Syrian government says, and will shoot down any Syrian planes that fly over U.S. forces there and that attack them.

As reported on Monday by Al-Masdar News:

The Pentagon has announced that the USA is ready to down Syrian and Russian planes that they claim threaten American advisers who by international law are illegally operating in northern Syria.

On Friday, Pentagon spokesman Captain Jeff Davis claimed that US jets attempted to intercept Syrian planes to protect the American advisers operating illegally with Kurdish forces in Syria after Syrian government jets bombed areas of Hasakah when Kurdish police began an aggression against the National Defense Force.

On Monday, another Pentagon spokesman, Peter Cook, said, “We would continue to advise the Syrian regime to steer clear of those areas.”

“We are going to defend our people on the ground, and do what we need to defend them,” Cook told reporters.

This means that the U.S. government will not allow the Syrian government to expel or otherwise eliminate U.S. forces in Syria. The Syrian government never invited U.S. forces into Syria, but the U.S. now officially dares the Syrian government to assert its sovereignty over the areas where America’s troops are located.

Al-Masdar continued: When pushed further about Russia, Cook made it clear that the US would make the same aggression against Russian jets who are operating legally with the Syrian government’s approval and coordination.

“If they threaten US forces, we always have the right to defend our forces,” Cook said.

This means that the U.S. not only is at war against the legitimate government of Syria, but that the U.S. government will also be at war against Russia if Russian forces (which the Syrian government did invite into Syria) defends Syrian forces from attacks in Syria by U.S. forces — forces that are illegally there.

These U.S. forces number only 300, of whom 250 were sent to Syria on April 24th to serve as advisors to other illegal military forces in Syria.

The Syrian government, from now on, is in the uncomfortable position of having invaders on its territory, and of being warned that one of them — the U.S. — will be fully at war against Syria if Syria tries to expel them.

Russia too is now under warning from the United States, that, if Russia, an ally of Syria, takes any action to expel or kill any of the U.S. invaders in Syria, then the U.S. will also be at war against Russia.

The U.S. government is now also daring the Russian government. Perhaps the U.S. strategy here is to force Russia’s President, Vladimir Putin, either to back down, and abandon its Syrian ally, or else to launch a nuclear strike against the United States. If Putin backs down, that would greatly diminish his support from the Russian people.
