Kissing the asses of their oppressors - turns out some of the stupidest Jews in Europe are Sweden's "official Jews"

Intellectual Jews who shy away from the facts concerning Islam and choose to direct their anger at Western Christians and secularists. Factual information makes no impression on them. Nothing will shake their conviction that anti-Semitism and criticism of Islam are branches on the same tree. The fact that I defend Israel and condemn the Jew hatred that is endemic to Islam is of no consequences to them. It is not Islam that is at fault! The fault lies with me and others who have pointed to the obvious fact that anti-Semitism is part and parcel of Islam.

Prisoner of Love - the intellectual collapse of contemporary feminism

Phyllis Chesler has had a curious career. Back in the 1970s, along with Betty Friedan, Germaine Greer, Kate Millett, and company, she was a leading “second-wave” feminist, whose 1972 book Women and Madness sold 2.5 million copies. Yet, in some respects, she always differed from her activist sisters. For one thing, she didn’t idealize non-Western cultures, or seem deluded into thinking that she and her fellow middle- and upper-class American women were the most oppressed creatures on earth. For another, she didn’t hate men. On the contrary, far from buying into the notion that women are morally superior to men and that they get along with one another in deep, rich, and wonderful ways that men cannot, she wrote a whole book, Woman’s Inhumanity to Woman (2009), about the manifold ways in which women hurt, exclude, judge, and abuse one another. 

There was always some distance, then, between Chesler and the feminist establishment, and, over the decades, it has only widened. While the women’s movement of the 1970s at least boasted some tough, smart leaders who stood up for their less privileged sisters around the world, today’s feminism is first and foremost an academic phenomenon—rife with caution, careerism, and conformity, drenched in political correctness, steeped in rhetoric about capitalism and American hegemony, and at least as focused on race and class as on gender.

Justin Trudeau Would Give Your Money To Omar Khadr & Canada Should Admit Cannibal Syrian Jihadi Refugees

New research shows life on Earth originated on Mars

Evidence is mounting that we are all Martians. 

According to new research presented at the annual Goldschmidt geochemistry conference in Florence, there is compelling evidence that life on Earth was kick-started by a meteorite from Mars bearing simple, RNA-based organisms. Furthermore, the same research also indicates that the ancient, primordial surface of Earth would’ve been inhospitable to the formation of the building blocks of life (RNA, DNA, and proteins) — therefore, the only way that life could’ve begun more than three billion years ago is if it arrived here from Mars.

Jonathan Kay: Bashing Israel on Vancouver buses isn’t a form of hate speech

Jon Kay makes some excellent points in his latest piece for the National Post:

...It would be nice if Vancouver transit riders could be educated about the intricacies of the Middle East conflict with a single ad. But alas, this one leaves out some crucial information. The second panel, marked “UN Plan 1947,” for instance, might have informed the reader that the depicted distribution of land was unanimously rejected by Arab nations, which then massed armies on Israel’s border in order to annihilate the nascent Jewish state. Nor does the ad depict the distribution of land contained in the peace deal offered to Yasser Arafat at Camp David in 2000. Oh, and the part about “five million” Palestinian refugees might have mentioned that this number has been artificially inflated by a unique UN provision, applicable only to Palestinians, extending the definition of “refugee” into intergenerational perpetuity.

Plenty of propaganda and indoctrination, but apparently one thing John Greyson didn't teach his students was how to make a decent movie

York University's anti-Israel fanatic John Greyson is currently in jail in Egypt for charges* including helping the Muslim Brotherhood's terrorist activities.

A few of his students and colleagues at York produced a short video appeal for his release. In viewing it, in which they describe the things they learned from Greyson, it becomes apparent one thing he did not teach them was how to make a decent motion picture.

But why should anyone expect that he would? There's nothing in his filmography to suggest he has that knowledge or ability.

As the old saying goes, those who can, do; those who can't teach; and those who can't do or teach are activists who proselytize in their classes at York University.

The video appeal includes snippets from anti-Israel propaganda that Greyson has produced and directed which his students praise.

Evidently he has misused his role as a York Film Professor to spread the hateful poison of his extremist political activism.

Egypt will probably let Greyson go soon. Unless he actually was involved in activities supporting the Muslim Brotherhood, they should have no interest in holding on to him.

Why anyone would want to keep John Greyson around for a second longer than they have to is indeed a mystery.

*NB: Greyson has not been formally charged, but the implication from the Egyptian authorities is that he was arrested for being involved with Muslim Brotherhood activities. He was arrested on a Muslim Brotherhood `Day of Rage` filled with riots and killings.

Students in the world's rape nation, South Africa, want it to be the new Nazi Germany

News from South Africa, the failing state with the highest per capita number of rapes in the world:

A concert at the University of the Witwatersrand (Wits) in South Africa featuring Israeli saxophonist Daniel Zamir turned ugly Wednesday night when members of the anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) group began to sing, “dubula e juda” (“shoot the Jew”) as concert attendees were entering the music hall, according to Wits Vuvuzela, a paper affiliated with the university.

Wits Vuvuzela, reported that BDS protestors also chanted “there is no such thing as Israel” and “Israel apartheid.”

Despite the hateful rhetoric, Muhammed Desai, coordinator of BDS South Africa, rejected the notion that anti-Semitism played a role in the group’s protest, telling Wits Vuvuzela that “the whole idea [of] anti-Semitism is blown out of proportion.”

Fraser Institute: Immigrants a $20 Billion dollar a year burden on Canada

A new report suggests immigrants are imposing a "fiscal burden" of about $20 billion a year on Canadian taxpayers and recommends a number of radical changes to the country's immigration selection process, including bringing an end to the sponsorship of parents and grandparents.

The report, released today by the Fraser Institute, also proposes that the current immigrant selection process, which relies heavily on political considerations, be replaced with one that relies primarily on the private sector and labour market conditions.

Good news everyone! University students in Europe are even bigger morons than students in North America!

...from this year’s European Universities Debating Championship in Manchester. The annual “Euros” tournament brings together hundreds of students from across Europe to argue about thorny issues for which they have only fifteen minutes to prepare.
...Video games make people violent: they’re the reason that Israeli soldiers are so aggressive in Gaza! The Muslim Brotherhood‘s biggest anxiety is not Al Qaeda in the Sinai or Hamas in Gaza, but Israel, which wants to conquer the whole of Egypt. Foreign aid budgets should be approved by referendum because governments cannot be trusted to allocate money responsibly: just look at how the US gives Israel foreign aid in order to oppress the Palestinians. China does not need fear international criticism of its support for North Korea: after all, Israel slaughters Palestinians on a daily basis, and nobody blames America. This was all heard by just one judge, by the way, in a competition of more than 200 teams. None of these debates had anything to do with Israel – until the debaters decided that everything boils down to Israel in the end. 
At last year’s championship in Belgrade, we learnt that Ehud Barak was the president of Syria, and that Israel is guilty of genocide in the West Bank, where it might consider dropping a nuclear bomb. Debating a demilitarised Palestinian state, one Israeli debater mentioned post-war Germany as an example of demilitarisation; she was met with the sardonic response that it was “curious” that the Israeli debaters should try to draw an analogy to Nazi Germany. Whatever that was supposed to mean.

North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un's mistress, "Excellent Horse-like lady," executed for making sex tape

Unconfirmed reports claim the ex-girlfriend of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un was executed by firing squad along with 11 others, after the group allegedly made and sold a sex tape.

Hyon Song Wol, a singer in North Korea's famed Unhasu Orchestra, was killed by machine gun along with 11 other members of the orchestra and the Wangjaesan Light Music Band, another popular state-run music group in North Korea, according to a report in The Chosun Ilbo, South Korea's largest daily newspaper.

The report, which cites an anonymous source in China, says the group was arrested Aug. 17 for filming and selling a pornographic video featuring themselves. The clip reportedly found its way across the border to China. Their families were forced to watch the execution, which took place three days later, and were then sent to the country's notorious prison camps, the source said.

The evolution of agriculture is responsible for the development of property rights

Current Biology has published an article that puts forward the theory, with convincing evidence, that the evolution of homo sapiens from foragers/hunter-gatherers to agricultural based civilizations is the main factor in the development of what we now look at as Property Rights:
"To test this hypothesis, Bowles and Choi developed a model that incorporates population dynamics, climate variability, different approaches to food provision, and different approaches to property sharing. Model runs showed that overall the transition to farming is an unlikely one and only succeeds under a small range of conditions. In all successful simulated transitions, the model showed that the property rights among farming populations co-evolved with the introduction of farming methods."

Egypt to Desmond Tutu: "Thanks, but no thanks"

Egypt, caught in the grip of raging civil conflict that has already claimed nearly a thousand lives in just four days, yesterday shot down a suggestion that Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu intervene to stop the bloodshed, saying it doesn’t need South Africa’s “failed reconciliation process”.

The proposal from former Western Cape premier and now South Africa’s ambassador to the US, Ebrahim Rasool, got short shrift from the Egyptian foreign ministry, which expressed “surprise” at South Africa’s offer to “assist Egypt by sharing experiences and lessons from our own political transition, from apartheid rule to a democratic dispensation”.

...the Egyptian foreign ministry said it was surprised South Africa was “trying to export its failed reconciliation process that hasn’t achieved real co-existence”.

The statement accused South Africa of having some of the highest rates of crime, corruption, poverty, unemployment and poor health in the world.

The rot and corruption on the face of Idle No More


In case you were wondering how idiotic Anthropology at the University of Toronto has become...

They are having a Salon evening on the subject of "Techno science"

Sounds innocuous enough, eh?

Think again:
Through critical itineraries, the Salon will bring postcolonial studies, indigenous studies, critical race studies, and feminist and queer studies to bear on the ways we follow and tell stories about technoscience.

We aspire to provoke interventions into our analytic, narrative, and political habits, to spark scholarship that is accountable to multiple histories and contemporary urgencies, and to rethink the relationships among diversely situated human and nonhuman actors. While recognizing how technoscience is deeply implicated in violence, colonialism and capitalism, how might we also attend to the non-hegemonic possibilities, alters, and elsewheres that are within technoscience?

Communist Union Boss promises new Canadian mega-union "Unifor" will be militant

"The Canadian Auto Workers (CAW) and the Communication, Energy and Paperworkers (CEP) are merging to create Unifor, the largest primarily private sector union in Canada with about 300,000 members."
Gary Engler, who wrote that description quoted above from the neo-Marxist website rabble.ca,  is the vice-president of the Local 2000 of the later of those unions soon to merge into the mega-union.

He is also the co-author of something called the New Commune-ist Manifesto which is essentially an argument for communism to dominate labor and politics in our society. In other words, he's another idiot who has learned nothing from the lessons of North Korea, Cuba, the Soviet Union, Pol Pot's Cambodia, and the 100 million murders and totalitarian misery that communism has inflicted on humanity since the Russian Revolution.

Canada's Parliament recently voted for union accountability in the form of Bill C-377, which was quashed by the Senate, adding to the many reasons to abolish that anachronistic, useless body of unelected patronage appointees.

Engler's description of his vision for the new Mega-Union is one that does not focus on workplace issues but one that infests the workplace with political and activist issues. That is precisely the cause of the backlash against unions that led to the House of Commons passing Bill C-377. But
someone who is still a communist in the year 2013 is not likely to be someone with the ability to process a great deal of information.

Unfortunately, Engler is far from alone in the way that union bosses think. They are, as a group, narcissists who want to dominate political thinking and shape it to their despicable manifestations of activism. That activism materializes in many reprehensible ways, be they the racist "Occupy Movement,"  the violent, mentally unbalanced cretins of the Ontario Coalition Against Poverty, or the terrorist-enablers of The Sea Hitleramong countless examples.

Engler wrote: "The promise of Unifor is in a rebirth of militant union activism."  The bad news is that in the short-term, militant radicalism from union fanatics may increase with the birth of "Unifor.`The good news is that if Unifor bosses behave as Engler hopes, and with the government promising to reintroduce Bill C-377,  it could be the final straw that breaks the backs of politicized unions in Canada.

Anarchist nutcases and registered charities decide to harass Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne at home

It's one thing to criticize a politician.

It's another entirely to show up en masse at their home and harass them and their entire neighborhood.

Kathleen Wynne may not be a very good Premier, but she's not Hitler. She's not even Kim Jong Il, though I've sarcastically made North Korean dictator references to her.

I'd like to see see her voted out next election, but harassing her at home is beyond the pale.

It's also standard procedure for the cretins at the Ontario Coalition Against Poverty, No One Is Illegal and a variety of other fanatical Marxist and anarchist groups whose membership is quite literally, and liberally, peppered with people who have severe mental illness.

Disgracefully, they were joined by some groups that have charitable status. Hopefully, they will be among the ones that the government has proposed to review.

Here's a shock! The idiot communists at rabble.ca are offended by Canada's proposed memorial to the victims of Communism

This is the website published by the spouse of federal NDP leader Libby Davies

More conspiracy theory lunacy from the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education's new "Social Justice" Chair

If you pay attention, you'll notice a pattern to the way that concepts are frequently expressed by Marxist ideologues such as Abigail Bakan, the new "Social Justice" Department Chair at University of Toronto's Ontario Institute for Studies in Education.

A supposed maxim will be forwarded based not on verifiable facts, but on opinions rooted in antiquated, Marxist axioms. Then, to "prove" it,  few if any actual supporting facts will be offered. Instead you will hear quotations of the unsubstantiated opinions of people who share the same views as her.

For example, to prove that Israel is an "apartheid state" she may offer that Desmond Tutu and Jimmy Carter consider Israel is an "apartheid" state.

Forget for a moment Jimmy Carter having expressly said there is nothing resembling apartheid in Israel proper, or that Tutu holds weird, somewhat anti-Semitic views and his outlook on Israel is shaped by factors other than that nation's actual policies.

According to Ms Bakan's dysfunctional logical processes, one has to accept that that something means whatever Desmond Tutu says it means. But then, naturally, only on those occasions when Tutu's opinions align with those of Abigail Bakan and whatever the current Marxist zeitgeist allows.

If this resembles a description of the way conspiracy theorists look at everything, there's good reason for it. Abigail Bakan is a conspiracy theorist; one who makes a living promoting a fallacious, ridiculous,and malign version of global events.

In a speech she made at Lakehead University that was loaded with uniformed, paranoid assertions predicated on her own extremist ideological prejudices, she discussed, among other matters, the primary campaign of Jesse Jackson in the 1980's.

As an example of the power of the dreaded American capitalist elite, she offered that Jackson "ran for President in 1984 and 1988 and at that point his presidency (sic) was withdrawn on the grounds that the Democratic Party would likely split if they put forward a black American candidate. That the party itself couldn't tolerate that type of, just visible diversity. So racism interacts with capitalism..."

Anyone who was an adult while Jesse Jackson ran for the Democratic Party nomination will be aware of a very different reality than the one claimed by OISE's Social Justice Chair Bakan.

Jesse Jackson did well in early primaries and caucuses. But he was eventually defeated not by an elite who forced him out because of a racist conspiracy, but the rather straightforward fact that Massachusetts Governor Michael Dukakis eventually trounced Jackson in open, democratic primary voting and gained enough delegates to win his party's presidential nomination. Among the other candidates Dukakis defeated for the 1988 nomination were Al Gore and Joe Biden.

The fact that the Democrats hadn't named a presidential nominee who never held elected office, such as Jackson, since 1904 when Alton Parker was defeated by Teddy Roosevelt, may have escaped her attention. Or perhaps it's a result of an inability to process information that doesn't coincide with her conspiratorial obsessions.

Whatever the reason, university students, the bulk of whom were not even born when the father of George W. Bush defeated Dukakis for the presidency and whose knowledge of American history is minimal, could easily unquestioningly accept the twisted interpretation put forward by an authority figure like Bakan.

Imagine a generation of students being guided by Abigail Bakan, who is on the editorial board of a website called The Canadian Charger that routinely publishes demented 9-11conspiracy theories.

In Ms Bakan's deranged, conspiracy riddled outlook, the election of Barack Obama was the means by which the ruling capitalist elites planed to replace racism against African Americans with "Islamophobia."  In Ms Bakan's mind, the magazine The Economist exists to provide a discourse by elites "maintaining and sustaining American and global imperialism."

Her lunatic assertions are too long to list, but you get the idea.

The world may be terrifying if one believes the idiocies fostered by Ms Bakan. But what should be even more terrifying is that the University of Toronto has given her a substantial platform to proselytize those idiocies as dogma to impressionable students.

If you think the Toronto Star is written by crazy people, this will make you certain of it

From Kelly McParland at The National Post: 
I’ve been thinking about this column for a couple of days now, ever since it appeared in a rival newspaper. 
It’s totally loopy.  It’s so nutty it really shouldn’t be taken seriously.  Normally I’d just ignore it, but the guy who wrote it is the publisher of a newspaper. A big newspaper, read by lots of people. They may think he knows what he’s talking about. 
The thesis is that, in allowing a U.S. company to compete with Canada’s three big wireless phone providers, Stephen Harper is betraying his country. He’s a traitor.

Pro-Muslim Brotherhood protest in Calgary blames MidEast strife on "Americans and Zionists." CBC omits that part from its coverage

In the coverage of the event that tells what actually happened, Jonathan Halevi who speaks Arabic, reports:

Here’s an excerpt of his speech: “The Egyptian armed forces, designated to protect the people, are now carrying out massacres in Egypt under the auspices of Israel and USA. What happened in Egypt and what is happening in all Arab states is being done under the auspices of the Zionists and Americans to crack down on any possible democracy or any democratic thinking in the Middle East.”

OISE's new "Social Justice" Department Chair a speaker at Khomeinist al Quds Day & Board Member of 9-11 conspiracy-promoting website

Evidently the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education (OISE)  has given up the pretense of being anything but a center of radical, anti-Western indoctrination.

Most recently, this appalling cesspool of neo-Marxist fanaticism made the news when one of its senior academics was arrested for producing child pornography. While that disgraceful distinction is revolting enough on its own, making matters worse is the fact that that same OISE academic, Professor Ben Levin, was responsible for attempting to introduce a hyper-sexualized curriculum for small children in public schools

That curriculum came with the blessing of OISE, a faculty of the University of Toronto, whose graduates and academics helped design that reprehensible effort to rob children of their innocence. 

If you think OISE, which is the most prominent teachers' education facility in Canada, couldn't get any worse, then think again.

Abigail Bakan speaking at a Khomeinist
CASMO al Quds Day event
This month, the institute named the new Chair for its "Humanities, Social Sciences and Social Justice Education" Department. That person is Abigail Bakan.

Ms Bakan is a Communist extremist who was a speaker at an al Quds Day event organized by the racist Khomeinist group CASMO. The Canadian Association of Shia Muslim Organizations (CASMO) is comprised of Khmomeinist fanatics who had a public relations fiasco when it became public knowledge that they were posting anti-Semitic videos made by the former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke. In the spirit of hatefulness that characterized the event, Bakan made the fatuous and despicably slanderous declaration that Israel "is exactly like the apartheid state of pre-1994 South Africa."

Bakan is also one of the five Editorial Board members of a 9-11 conspiracy promoting website called The Canadian Charger, whose founder and her co-Board member is Mohammed Elmasry, who infamously declared that all Jews in Israel over the age of eighteen are 'legitimate' targets for murder.

You might imagine that someone who makes common cause with anti-Semites and people who advocate the murder of homosexuals might not seem the ideal choice as a leader for "Social Justice Education." 

But then at OISE, "social justice"  isn't about justice at all.

At OISE, Social Justice is a euphemism for hateful detestation of Israel with its implied anti-Semitism of choosing the Jewish people as the one group on earth to whom they would deny national self-determination. Social Justice at OISE means advocacy for communism and totalitarian communist dictatorships, which deprive people of individual liberty. 

The department that Bakan will Chair had its only notable distinction in its former incarnation as OISE's Sociology and Equity Studies in Education Department, which has since folded into the new division.

That distinction came when one of its students and her thesis was denounced in the Ontario Legislature by the Minister of Citizenship and others for anti-Semitism.

Bakan, who was an instructor at a secretive, anti-Israel course at Queen's University, may have learned a lesson. Not about Social Justice, but about the need to spread hate with stealth.

That may fly in the basic principles of academic responsibility, but it would make it entirely consistent with what passes for Social Justice at OISE.

Matt Gurney on the fallout from shooting death of Sammy Yatim

A very insightful article from Matt Gurney at The National Post:
...In charging Const. Forcillo with second-degree murder, Ontario’s independent police review agency, the Special Investigations Unit, has set the bar high. The Crown must now prove that Const. Forcillo had the intention of killing Mr. Yatim and that he did not have any reasonable grounds to fear for his own life. And it’s important to note that he doesn’t need to establish that shooting Mr. Yatim was necessary, just that in the heat of the moment, he reasonably believed it was necessary. Proving that he didn’t have reasonable grounds to believe that, let alone proving it beyond a reasonable doubt, will prove a huge challenge.

There’s every likelihood, based on the above, that Const. Forcillo will fight these charges, win and conceivably return to duty. Mr. Yatim’s family, and those outraged on their behalf, need to be prepared for that.

Socialist Studies - a new blog worth reading

There are people who has been paying very close attention to the ways that the people running our public schools have betrayed the public trust.

The Toronto District School Board's promotion of Marxism in the curriculum, the radical groups and individuals who should be allowed no where near children who are routinely given official access to classrooms, and a variety of other shocking items have been sourced by readers of this blog and others.

As of today, I am pleased to be able to report that a new blog called Socialist Studies will focus on the shocking ways that schools and the education system are being used as a tool to promote politicized indoctrination.

Anyone interested in the current state of education and public policy should check it out regularly

Hamas: "Hitler killed Jews for his people; Sisi killed his people for Jews"

At a Hamas led pro-Muslim Brotherhood rally at the Temple Mount in Jreusalem, there were chants of and banners unfurled reading  "Hitler killed Jews for his people; Sisi killed his people for Jews."

Elder of Ziyon observes: 

So in one tiny slice of time, we have Arab justification of the Holocaust, antisemitic conspiracy theories, and a desecration of the Jews' holiest place with people who want to ethnically cleanse all Jews from the region.
In other words, it is barely worth reporting in the media.

Palestinian finds Facebook bug, proves point by hacking CEO’s personal page

After discovering a privacy bug on Facebook, unemployed Palestinian programmer Khalil Shreateh said he just wanted to collect the traditional $500 (U.S.) bounty the social network giant offers to those who voluntarily expose its glitches.

But when Facebook ignored his first two reports, Mr. Shreateh took his message to the top – and hacked into CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s personal page to prove his point.

The pathetic, paranoid and hilarious world of Canada's nutcase, far-left radicals

The vapid Canadian far left sees "oppression" in just about everything.

To illustrate their cognitive impairment, it should suffice to say that they live in the most prosperous, egalitarian society in the history of the world, and complaining of its "oppression," these geniuses want to replace it with a system that has invariably lead to totalitarianism, poverty and mass-murder of civilians.

Aside from their many imagined "oppressions," there is something the intensely earnest, humorless egotists of the radical left despise even more. Whet  riles them more than anything is when they are exposed as foolish hypocrites. To observe their self-discrediting idiocy, all one has to do is pay a modicum of attention to what they say and do. But the radical left has benefited from the laziness and sympathy of the mainstream media which frequently reports only a fragment of the radicals' activities and omits their most glaring acts of intellectual seppuku.

Which is why they are really, really pissed off at a blogger named Greg Renouf who operates a blog called GenuineWitty.

I've written before about the radical left's animus towards Greg. It seems that their rancor has reached new levels now that Renouf is a regular guest on Ezra Levant's show on Sun News Network. Levant is an outsider who routinely exposes the hypocrisy and stupidity of the leftist fanatics. With the inside knowledge that Greg brings, they have incurred the absolute fury of the radicals by revealing them as clownish objects of ridicule.

Componding the amusement are the pathetic efforts of some leftists to strike back. Filled with prose doused in a melange of sanctimony, vitriol and self-pity, it's hilarious reading.

Four Wives and One Husband - Polygamy in Iran

A fascinating documentary:

Researchers Building a Computer Chip Based on the Human Brain

...Despite their ability to perform thousands of tasks in the blink of an eye, none of these devices even come close to rivaling the computing capabilities of the human brain. At least not yet. But a Boise State University research team could soon change that.

...“By mimicking the brain’s billions of interconnections and pattern recognition capabilities, we may ultimately introduce a new paradigm in speed and power, and potentially enable systems that include the ability to learn, adapt and respond to their environment,” said Barney Smith, who is the principal investigator on the grant.

The project’s success rests on a memristor – a resistor that can be programmed to a new resistance by application of electrical pulses and remembers its new resistance value once the power is removed. Memristors were first hypothesized to exist in 1972 (in conjunction with resistors, capacitors and inductors) but were fully realized as nano-scale devices only in the last decade.

For my part, I just hope they are very careful about whose brains they decide to try to get the computers to mimic.

Glenn Greenwald’s Partner Detained By British Security; Was Transporting Top Secret Documents

Early Sunday morning, Glenn Greenwald learned that his Brazilian partner, David Miranda, was detained and interrogated for nine hours by security officials at London’s Heathrow airport. The officials also seized Miranda’s electronic devices: his phone, laptop and so forth. At first glance, if he was indeed held because of his association with Greenwald, this was a horribly tone-deaf and heavy-handed move by British officials, especially knowing that Miranda was apparently detained under the U.K.’s Terrorism Act of 2000, Schedule 7.

But then, as the day wore on, more details came to light indicating that Miranda wasn’t detained simply because of a “despotic” worse-than-the-Mafia attack on an innocent spouse.

Idiot Line 9 protester gets a hard lesson on the perils of being incredibly stupid in court

These Line 9 protesters add  a whole new depth to the term "imbecile."

They disrupt a court by clapping during proceedings, then when given a warning, seem to think that switching to snapping their fingers in court is an acceptable alternative option.

I kid you not.

One wonders whether these people's behavior is a result of profound ignorance or just brain damage:
"On Tuesday I participated in a show of court support by respectfully clapping as each of my fellow arrestees and friends from Swamp Line 9 were called to the front. After the justice of the peace threatened to clear the court, we switched to the quiet and unobtrusive snapping of our fingers. A police officer, at his own accord, decided to target and arrested one individual. Out of fear for her safety, being locked in a room with two armed and aggressive males without supervision, some of us tried to negotiate her release. Police responded en masse with force.

I was arrested for assault on police, obstruction and disrupting the court."

Are Obama's counterproductive Egyptian statements really part of a clever conspiracy?

It's possible that Barack Obama's seemingly counterproductive, idiotic statements about the current crisis in Egypt may not just be lazy blathering from the most ineffectual US President since Jimmy Carter.

The Muslim Brotherhood is a murderous gang of Ismaist fanatics. Despite winning the election in Egypt, they have no respect for democracy and like fascists before them, used the democratic process to impose their own form of dictatorial tyranny. The beliefs and principles guiding the Muslim Brotherhood are thoroughly antithetical to western values, democracy and the United States. Many in the Brotherhood have gone so far as to promise the genocide of Egypt's Christian community if they regain power, and during the current crisis, they have burned down dozens of Coptic churches.

So in response to the Brotherhood riots in Egypt following the deposition of the Islamist President Mohamed Morsi, Obama condemned the Egyptian Generals who are more friendly to the US. The American President's statements seemingly lent support to the depraved killers of the Muslim Brotherhood, whom Obama ridiculously characterized as "peaceful protesters". Barely paying lip service to the Brotherhood's attempts to slaughter Christians, Obama has gone so far as to threaten to hinder desperately-needed US aid to Egypt's government if the violent Islamists continue to be repressed.

On the surface, Obama's words make him look more like a Muslim Brotherhood plant in the White House than a President acting in the interests of the United States.

But all may not be as it seems.

One thing that many in the west forget is that Muslims in the Middle East despise the US, its government, and in particular, its President. Obama's "apology tour" at the beginning of his term did nothing to mollify that hate.  Nor did his efforts at appeasement make the Arabs hate him less, they only made them lose respect for US strength and determination.

But perhaps Obama understands the contempt he engenders in the Muslim Middle East.

After all, Obama's approbation would be reviled in the Middle East much the same way that we in the West would feel disgust towards those getting adulation from the depraved Grand Ayatollah of Iran.

Could it be Obama understands that in that tumultuous region, praise from him is more damning than the most effective curse?

According to a report in the leftist, ant-American British newspaper The Guardian, the Egyptian government's crackdown on the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, while incurring the censure of Obama, is garnering widespread domestic support in Egypt. Their government has portrayed The Muslim Brotherhood as "western-backed terrorists" and the apparent aid and succor from Obama must reinforce that message.

Could it be that Obama is really a genius who is willing to sacrifice his image and credibility in order to bolster a friendly government? 

I doubt it. I doubt it very much.

NDP MP Charlie Angus has a social media meltdown

Despite being the Official Opposition, the New Democratic Party of Canada still acts like they know they got there by a fluke and continue to behave like a fringe party.

Their hysterical, frothing, and ever-desperate efforts to spew hate at the established political parties frequently makes them look foolish, and that happened to one of the NDP's senior MPs, Charlie Angus, this week.

Trying to discredit the Canadian Senate, which has more than its share of problems and flaws, Angus went off the rails by trying to "slut-shame" the wife of a retired Senator for appearing in a racy comedy video.

In a facebook post where he wrote " just when you thought the Senate couldn't get more tawdry or disgraced.." he posted an article about the 24 year-old Maygen Sensenberger, who is the wife of retired Liberal Senator Rod Zimmer.

Thing is, the video, Sensenberger, and a retired Senator have nothing to do with any of the current Senate scandals.

GenuineWitty has the details on this item.

A lesson for people who want to try to shame someone else about their supposed lack of dignity, if you want to do that, don't make an absolute fool of yourself with a pathetic attempt at being a middle-aged rapper.
