MEN, TRADITION, AND COMMON-SENSE, PART II

   Since our last article was published, one of the participants in the debate, 'Scarecrow' at the blog Men-Factor wrote an interesting post highlighting some of the revolting behavior of our postmodern Western female population. To which he added the following rhetorical question:

   "Don't take my word for it - try googling things like this. It really shows how degenerate women have become. I guess that if men stop fapping, this would not be happening? I don't know."

   Well, the literal answer is that deranged women will do things like he describes regardless of anything men collectively do or don't do. But the real question being posed here is: Given the current shortage of quality women, why deprive men of artificial means of sexual gratification? 

   The answer to that question is that men shouldn't behave in counterproductive and self-destructive ways just because women do. And men today also need to take into account that our ancestors faced many of the same issues, and solved them. Contrary to popular belief, this not time in history that men have had. 

   Most recently in America, there was the Old West. After the Civil War when the West was opened up, the shortage of women became apparent and led to social problems. It wasn't uncommon for men working outside of towns to go for months without seeing a woman; let alone being with one. A couple of centuries earlier the shortage of women in the then-French colony of Quebec was so severe that King Louis XIV actually subsidized and gave Royal Pardons to low-level female criminals in French jails on the condition that they'd settle in Canada. In the time of Augustus Caesar, the ratio of single men to eligible women was six times higher than anywhere in America today. 

   These were pre-Feminist days; and despite Feminist propaganda and Manosphere Golden-Age idealization, what women got away with doing was comparable to anything they do nowadays. The Roman man, the French voyaguer, and the American cowboy were about as 'Alpha' as one could get, yet contemporary accounts showed that they were compelled to tolerate a lot from the fair sex. And the laws protected women then, too, much more so than men. 

   The point here is, as Eivind Berge pointed out again, that wholesale male retreating into pornography and autoeroticism is essentially a defeatist and sex-negative position. Effectively, all it is amounts to a denial of man's basic need for women---and what accomplishment is that? The homosexuals can say as much. And BTW, it's also not a widely-known fact that homosexual activists are deeply involved in the porn industry. 

   In our last post, we mentioned going into some more specifics about the impacts of these behaviors, that will be discussed in an upcoming article.

MEN RETURNING TO TRADITION AND COMMON SENSE, PART I

    There have been a series of posts throughout the Internet lately, including an interesting debate in the Manosphere about whether or not activities involving pornography and, its concomitant, autoeroticism are forms of male sexual liberation; or whether they are in fact harmful activities. So far we haven't written on this topic because it is a complex issue but one that needs to be addressed and debated openly. 

    Postmodernism has given the West a society which is simultaneously sex-negative and sex-obsessed. Some writers like Dr. Rookh Kshatriya are absolutely correct that sexual jealousy which has been inculcated in the public by various interest groups have led to this paradoxical condition. Sexual power is both a goal to accomplish at all hazards in our society while at the same time those who actually achieve it are envied, resented, and despised. This phenomenon is based in Cultural Marxism; and as proof that envy is at the root of our sexual chaos, just observe other social phenomenon attacked by the Left. Our culture, for example, both hates the wealthy while it worships money. The inherent envy built into Neo-Marxism is at work there as well. 

  Norwegian blogger Eivind Berge got the debate really going again in a recent article titled Anosognosia. He made this very interesting observation:

  "It is true that the ability to "find sexual release" by means of visual stimuli and masturbation is a "feature" of male sexuality, but this is a great tragedy rather than anything to be celebrated. If you think this is a good thing, then you are suffering not only from anosognosia, but also a fetishization of disability, because a disability or maladaptation is precisely what it is in the current world. Our sex-hostile mainstream culture is all too happy to tell you that masturbation is fine. And then it institutes a (to the feminists) bonus level of oppression on top of that -- criminalizing a good bit of masturbation as well, usually by making at least some kinds of pornography illegal -- which is reliant on men being deluded into thinking these asexual pursuits provide some sexual value."

   Whether Mr. Berge realizes it or not, this was essentially the reasoning behind most Anti-Pornography laws which existed in the United States up until recent times. Granted, our politicians often embellished their laws with moral and religious overtones; but most doctors, social scientists, and some of the more educated clergy understood that Society had an obligation to at least discourage such behaviors. 

  Now, probably because of the differences between 20th and 21st Century technologies, we've seen certain trends emerge in society that are troubling. Berge points out that"when something is a major feature of their environment for long enough, species will tend to adapt to it. That has obviously not happened with Internet porn yet because it has only been around for one generation. Two generations if you include DVDs and VHS tapes, and before that there was no seriously compelling pornography."

   I wouldn't even argue that DVD/VHS technology was especially deep proliferation; but before that, it either required studio tapes or literature---mostly the latter. But even when our laws prohibited pornography, the lawmakers generally took the position that consumption of pornography was going to happen just given human nature: and while people caught with such material were subject to a great deal of judicial scolding and public shaming; they rarely went to jail over it. The law, however, was not so lenient with producers and distributors of it. 

  The changes in technology, have effectively made any discussion of bringing back the old laws a moot point; but that doesn't change the underlying science. But one important point that everyone seems to have missed in the whole recent debate is why our laws used to differentiate so sharply in terms of enforcement. This is because the consumer-end of the spectrum has no constant motive and, consequentially differing degrees of personal harm done. It runs the gamut from guys and girls who are just bored and having some naughty fun to hard-core porn/autoerotic addicts who can actually be quite dangerous.  Porn traffickers, in contrast, rarely have lofty social goals in mind while engaging in their trade. 

  And this, to my thinking, is an essential difference when assessing the actual harm that pornographic consumption and autoeroticism actually do. To some men, it does little or no harm: but no one cognizant of the facts could argue that should ever become socially normative---let alone superior to---natural sexual relationships. We will discuss the reasons why in Part II. Meanwhile, men struggling with the issue can check out some of the interesting links that Mr. Berge has provided. It's clear that the issue is becoming more widely examined among men.

DUTCH GUN LAWS FAIL TO STOP MASS SHOOTINGS

   For the second time in six months, there has been a mass-shooting in The Netherlands. Details are still coming in as we write; but according to a social media post by Dordrecht Mayor Wouter Kolff, the situation is "very serious." Deutsche Welle reported that three people have been killed and at least one wounded; and that the shooting took place inside a residence.


   An earlier shooting took place in March of this year, when a gunman opened fire on a commuter train. Four were killed and six were injured in that attack. 

   There will be more details as the news develops. But what ought to be noted for us Americans that these shootings occurred in a country that has the strictest gun control laws in the European Union. According to the Dutch Ministry of Information:

   "In the Netherlands, the possession of all firearms and other weapons is prohibited. Non-firearms include various types of knives, fake weapons, realistic-looking toys and air weapons, electroshock weapons and self-defence weapons. If you want to own or trade in weapons and ammunition, you need a weapons permit. There are 4 types of permits: recognition, consent, authorisation and dispensation."

   The first of these two permits pertain to commercial uses of firearms. The latter two are two separate licenses a Dutch gun owner needs. The 'Authorization Permit' is a license to transport a weapon. The 'Dispensation Permit' is required to own one in the first place. As one might imagine, getting a permit of any kind isn't especially easy. The Ministry states:

 "The application procedure for weapons permits is subject to strict rules:
  • You must submit your application in person;
  • You must also be present in person when the storage facilities in your business or house are checked;
  • You must also comply with an examination of your mental health;
  • You must provide 3 references.
The police chief will decide on the basis of this information whether you will be granted a permit or not."
   Among the criterion for obtaining a permit, one must explain to the Police Chief his reasons for wanting to own a firearm. Self-defense is not considered a valid reason in Holland. The only reasons acceptable to the Dutch bureaucracy are for hunting and target-shooting. For hunting purposes, one must pass a government-approved safety course and be granted a hunting license first. This has to be done annually. The Ministry of Information notes that even "People who have one or more permits issued before 1 September 2017, and only from before that date, must go through the new procedure once."
   For target-shooting purposes, the Dutch require that one be a member of a government-approved shooting club for one year before a permit to own a .22 rifle is allowed. One can own larger calibers based upon how many years of membership they have. BB and Pellet guns are illegal unless one is over 18 and a member of an organization approved by the National Dutch Airsoft Association. 

  Dutch law restricts the maximum number of firearms one can own at five. They must be stored in a gun safe, and a condition of the Gun Permit is that the police come to your home once a year for a mandatory inspection. 

   We mention Dutch policy here for two reasons: one, to show that gun laws don't really work. The second is because, after every mass-shooting in America, the Internet chat rooms and message boards are flooded with Europeans lecturing us on how we need tougher gun laws like they have. In fact, American pundits were bragging (shortly before the March shooting in Holland) that gun ownership in The Netherlands was at its lowest level in 12 years. That news must have put psychos on notice that Holland is safe place to go on a rampage. 

   Gun laws in general are simply a knee-jerk reaction; politicians doing something for the sake of doing something. The American Gun Control Act of 1968, one of our strictest gun laws, was enacted for no other reason than Lee Harvey Oswald had purchased a rifle through the mail. Of course this law hasn't stopped a politician---or anybody else for that matter---from being shot since. Only six years after the law designed to prevent future Oswalds was enacted, President Ford was nearly shot twice; and six years after that, President Reagan was wounded in an attack. 

   But don't expect the Corporate Media to mention any of this in the wake of the Dutch shooting. Just like they routinely ignore gang violence in Liberal dominated cities, they won't report this either.

HOLLYWOOD IDIOT RESPONSIBLE FOR FATAL CAR CRASH

   Earlier this week, the news broke that entertainment-media figure Kylie Rae Harris was killed in a car crash near Taos, New Mexico. She was a Country Music singer; also a heroic single mother, a wino, and given to weird emotional outbursts and other narcissistic behaviors. All of this is fairly standard for American celebrities these days, but what was surprising was the statement issued by Taos County Sheriff Jerry Hogrefe: “At this time I will say with most certainty Miss Cruz was an innocent victim of this senseless crash caused by Ms. Harris.”

   The 'Miss Cruz' to whom the Sheriff refers was Maria Elena Cruz---a young woman of 16 who was killed in the collision. But since she wasn't a celebrity and just a normal American girl, the Media didn't give her death much thought. The surprising thing in the Sheriff's statement was that he actually held a media figure responsible. As we all know, in today's America, celebrities get a free pass from law enforcement even when they cause somebody else's death. 

   And this is true of the Media, too. In researching this article, we went through the first 12 pages of a Google Search and so far haven't found one news story where Maria Elena Cruz was mentioned in the headlines. Kylie Rae Harris, in contrast, has several stories paying her tribute and engaging in national mourning; and showing photos of her fans slobbering in front of the cameras. There's even a GoFundMe link to support her now-orphaned daughter on page 4 of the search results even though she's inheriting an estate worth nearly 1 million dollars. Those of us little people in flyover country are expendable anyway; according to the thinking of the Elites who populate the fringes of our country (both the geographical and the psychological fringes). 

   We're going to tell a side of the story here that isn't told: that is, about the real people involved in these circumstances. 


   Maria Elena Cruz was 16 years old when she died. She was about to start her Junior year at Taos High School and was working during the Summer as a waitress at the Guadalajara Grill. She was evidently quite popular at her school and generally well-liked. Her former 5th-Grade teacher posted this on Facebook earlier today:


“I sent the following message earlier this evening to my former EGES 5th grade DL students who are now Taos High School Juniors, in the wake of the tragic loss of their beloved classmate, and my student, Maria Elena Cruz! I had purposely sent it to them as a PM in hopes that they would feel free to express themselves in private, which they did and are. I have since decided to share my message to my former DL students, on my FB wall to bring light to the fact that even though the tragic loss of this beautiful, intelligent, kind, hard working, and inspirational Teen won’t make the FOX and CNN syndicated news, Maria was also treasured, loved, and admired by all who met her. Her tragic death has impacted many young lives, former teachers, her beloved parents and little sister. A life with a future only a few can begin to dream of was cut short through not fault of her own! How many innocents have to die at the hands of someone who chooses to drink and drive before we open our eyes to this cruel and senseless act.”



    Maria Elena's father, Pedro Cruz, is the Deputy Fire Marshal in San Cristobal. He was one of the team of first responders who arrived at the scene of the fatal crash. I can't imagine what he must have felt: he had no idea that his daughter was involved in the wreck until he arrived there. A Funeral Mass is scheduled for Tuesday Afternoon.

     

    
      It's unknown whether Maria Elena was dating or not; but I'm confident that she had some male admirers. On the larger sociological scale, though, this is why the loss of someone like her impacts our culture as a whole. Our girls and young women are the future mothers, teachers, and caregivers of our next generation. They are of much greater value to society than the phony 'role-models' held up by Hollywood Trash Culture. 

   Though not publicized in the press, Maria Elena has a GoFundMe page to help her family during this time. The town of San Cristobal announced that the fundraising dinner planned for the Community Center earlier today had been changed to raise funds for the Cruz Family. For those living in New Mexico, donations can also be dropped off in person at the Taos County Fire and EMS Office, located near the Holy Cross Hospital at 1397 Weimer Road.

LEFTIST WHACKOS DeBLASIO AND GOODELL BUILD TRASH CULTURE MONUMENTS

     Well, as we slide into both the Labor Day Weekend and the start of NFL Season, NYC Mayor Bill DeBlasio and NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell are behaving like complete fools and giving the rest of the planet an opportunity to laugh at the stupid Political Correctness prevailing over here. 

    Under the leadership of Mayor DeBlasio, the Big Apple has been working feverishly to reclaim its crown as America's Cesspool from its numerous West Coast competitors. Recently, the mayor's wife hosted a PC contest called She Built NYC to build a monument to the most influential woman in the city's history. However, the Whacko Left on the panel of judges didn't get the results they'd hoped for. The public nominated a nun, Mother Frances X. Cabrini, for the honor.


   The panel overturned the public's decision unilaterally and nominated instead an abortionist and two transvestites to receive the reward. A petition to protest the decision, with further details, can be found here, for those interested. 

   Mother Cabrini was born in the former nation of Lombardi in 1850. In 1889, she came to New York as part of a missionary team. In 1909, she became a US citizen. Prior to her death shortly before Christmas, 1917, she had founded 67 institutions across the East and Midwest; including orphanages and the former Columbus Hospital System. Interestingly, she died while working at orphanage---making Christmas candy for homeless children---of a sudden illness.

   In 1946, Pope Pius canonized Mother Cabrini as a saint; making her the first naturalized American citizen so elevated. New York and Chicago both have streets named for her. In 1996, she was inducted into the National Women's Hall of Fame and in 1998 the non-profit Cabrini Foundation was incorporated to carry on her humanitarian work. 

   And yet---the DeBlasio Administration decided---even against the public---that Mother Cabrini didn't deserve a monument, but sex perverts and baby-killers, did. NYC taxpayers are going to cough up $5 million to the 'artistes' putting up these offensive structures. 

   Meanwhile, the NFL wasn't lagging behind. They too are having a contest for their upcoming Centennial for the Most Influential NFL Figure of the Century. The now ultra-PC magazine Sports Illustrated named among its candidates,  "Sarah Thomas, the first female referee; Lyle Alzado, the first player to admit to using PEDs; and Colin Kaepernick, the man who attacked racial injustice by kneeling down," noted Heavy.com. A dyke, a drug addict, and a millionaire Left-Wing activist: hardly anything symbolizes what the NFL has become more than that. 

   Convicted felons Michael Vick and OJ Simpson are also on the list; along with girl-beater Ray Rice. Most of the others are 'first female' sportscasters and executives, and the big-money boys who helped turn football from a sport into---well, what it is. At least they managed to devote a passing paragraph to Jim Thorpe, the greatest athlete of the 20th Century who singlehandedly organized football into a professional sport. 


   The fact that Thorpe was an American Indian, we suppose, kept him from being relegated to the Dead White Male class. The real losers in both these contests, though, are the American people---who've been made to look like international chumps once again by our so-called 'Cultural Elites'.

MASSIVE OPIOID RING MOWED DOWN

    The FBI is on the move again; this time cutting down a network of Houston-area clinics distributing dope under the guise of implementing Obamacare. A total of 41 people---including five known mobsters---were swept up in the dragnet. 

 "The charges allege participating doctors, medical professionals and pharmacies knew the prescriptions had no legitimate medical purpose and were outside the usual course of professional practice.  In some cases, “crew leaders” and “runners” allegedly filled or had the individuals who posed as patients fill the illegal prescriptions at Houston-area pharmacies.  The owner and pharmacist in charge at one pill mill pharmacy allegedly dispensed the second highest amount of oxycodone 30mg pills of all pharmacies in the entire State of Texas in 2019, and the ninth highest amount in the nation.  One hundred percent of the oxycodone dispended by this pharmacy – every single oxycodone pill that left the premises – was in the highest available dosage strength of that drug. On certain occasions the indictments allege that drug dealers and traffickers then allegedly diverted and distributed the controlled substances to the streets, with some pills trafficked from Houston to Boston." said Attorney-General Barr, in a statement.
   The DEA also closed six clinics, fifteen pharmacies, and issued nine suspension orders to other suspected facilities. The Agency estimates that over 23 million doses of Hydrocodone, Oxycodone, and Carisoprodol were pushed all over the city streets. All of these medications are issued by the government. Stories about these medicines turning up later as street drugs are becoming about as common in the US as mass-shootings. We do recall, however, that President Obama assured us all during the National Health Care debate that the system would be fool-proof against fraud and corruption. As we've seen on a regular basis now, the exact opposite has been the case. 
   In a related Swamp-Draining story, the DEA also announced today that one of its own members, a former Special Agent for New Orleans, is off to the slammer after pleading guilty to multiple counts of Obstructing Justice, Perjury, and Falsifying Government Records:
    "According to the evidence presented during the seven-day trial, Chad Scott, while a DEA special agent in New Orleans, committed these crimes in and around the New Orleans, Louisiana, and Houston, Texas, areas.  Specifically, the evidence showed that Scott directed a Houston-based drug trafficker to buy a Ford F-150 truck worth approximately $43,000 and forfeit the truck to Scott as part of the drug trafficker’s cooperation.  Scott then falsified the seizure paperwork for the truck in various aspects, including falsely claiming that he had seized the truck in New Orleans instead of Houston, in order to facilitate the vehicle being forfeited and given to Scott as his official government vehicle. Additionally, the evidence showed that Scott convinced the same Houston-based drug trafficker, as well as another drug trafficker in Houston, to testify falsely at a federal trial in New Orleans as to the identification of a major cocaine and heroin supplier in the Houston area.  Along with obstructing justice by inducing this false testimony, Scott then himself committed perjury during a motion session as well as during the federal trial, the evidence showed.  After a trial including this false testimony, the alleged supplier was found guilty.  Once Scott’s actions and the false testimony came to light, the case against the alleged supplier was dismissed by the court at the request of the United States."
     Three Louisiana Police officials who served on Scott's Task Force are also sitting in jail awaiting trial in October. One of these sterling characters robbed a home using a fake Search Warrant. He and the other two were caught with cash and narcotics in their possession that were supposed to have been forfeited to the DEA. The Swamp is indeed a very deep and dark place.

FBI SINKS A SWAMP RAT

      This Swamp Creature was a really bad one, too. Robert Levy, a pathologist with the Department of Veterans' Affairs was jailed last week on three counts of Manslaughter and 28 various counts of Fraud. The VA has been notable since Trump took office for the sheer number of former federal employees who now become federal prison inmates. 

    Levy was head of the Pathology and Laboratory Medical Services for the VA Hospital in Fayetteville, Arkansas for 12 years, and analysed about 34,000 fluid and tissue samples which were intended to provide clinic information upon which to make a diagnosis for treatment. Levy, though, was a chronic alcoholic who frequently was drunk on duty. FBI specialists contend that about 18% were wrongly diagnosed; and one VA official believes that at least 15 veterans died from Levy's malpractice. Federal prosecutors have indicted him for three deaths, so far. His annual salary in that position was $225,000.

   Heavy.com summarized the three cases as follows:

   "One of the patients, a veteran identified as D.R.M. in the document, went in for biopsy in 2009. Levy ruled that the prostate tissue was negative for cancer. Because of that diagnosis, the man did not receive treatment and the disease was able to spread. The man died in 2016 from metastatic prostate cancer. In February of 2014, patient J.R.G. was wrongly diagnosed with “diffuse large B-cell lymphoma. A few days later, Levy changed the diagnosis to “adenocarcinoma,” which was also incorrect. Prosecutors said Levy falsified the medical record to make it look as if a second pathologist had agreed with the diagnosis. The patient received the wrong medical treatment and died from small-cell carcinoma on July 26, 2014. The third case prosecutors laid out also began in 2014. Levy was accused again of diagnosing a patient, J.D.Q., with the wrong form of cancer and again lying about a second physician having looked at the results. This patient died on September 13, 2015, after cancer had spread widely through his body."

  As was typical during the Deep-State years, many VA knew of Dr. Levy's condition, but were afraid to rock the boat. In 2015, however, his drunkenness became so apparent that he was finally reported to his superiors. They, however, took his denial at face value and allowed him to continue working. In March, 2016, his impairment was so severe during one lab test, that staffers removed him from the laboratory. He was tested that time, and found to have a Blood/Alcohol Content of 396mg/dl; which, according to specialists, is slightly below the stage of completely passing out. 

  The VA then issued a suspension to Dr. Levy. In July of 2016, he was placed in a 'diversion program' and reinstated in September on the condition of regular monitoring. The Indictment shows that Levy cheated on all of those tests by ingesting a chemical that altered the results to negative. It wasn't until the Trump Administration came into office that Levy was finally fired in 2018; though he largely undid himself after being caught at a DUI checkpoint. 

  Federal prosecutors haven't specified what the maximum penalty could be if Levy is convicted; but personally I hope that they haven't ruled out the death penalty. His case is yet another example of what we, as a country, left after the 2016 elections.
