Stop ‘collecting scalps’ & punishing ‘one-off’ misconduct cases, Mary Beard tells #MeToo campaign

The broadcaster and historian also said the Times Up campaign, which was launched in response to the Hollywood sexual abuse scandal, should invest more effort in trying to protect women rather than holding men to account for single incidents of inappropriate sexual behavior.

She seemingly excused “one-off” perpetrators, stating “we all we all have bits of mistaken casual behavior.”

While acknowledging the campaign’s success in making sex abuse against women subject of public debate, Beard expressed doubt over its obsession to “collect scalps.”

“I think there is a tendency to cherry-pick events and take them out of context,” she said. “Perhaps we are too worried about isolated examples of inappropriate behavior by men.

“We all have bits of mistaken casual behavior that we regret, right?” she added in an interview with Radio Times. “It’s hard to not feel slightly pleased about the fall of Harvey Weinstein. He was so big.

“He was brought down, and that was empowering. But my aim isn’t just to collect scalps, but to make sure that this doesn’t happen again,” she added.

The BBC historian went a step further, saying: “If the price for getting men to stop was an amnesty, then I would wave the magic wand and make it happen.”

Beard’s comments come after the acclaimed historian was reduced to tears over the weekend as she was scolded online over a tweet. Beard was accused of excusing the behavior of Oxfam aid workers accused of sexual misconduct in Haiti, after she posted: “I do wonder how hard it must be to sustain ‘civilised’ values in a disaster zone.”

Critics subsequently accused Beard of acting like a “colonialist.”

She responded to the accusation saying:

Fox News’ Ingraham Tells Trump-hating NBA Stars to ‘Shut up and Dribble’

Laura Ingraham scored a memorable hit on anti-war liberals with her 2003 book “Shut up and Sing: How Elites from Hollywood, Politics, and the Media are Subverting America.” After NBA stars LeBron James and Kevin Durant criticized President Trump yesterday, Ingraham issued a verbal variation on that zinger, rejecting their political commentary by telling them to “shut up and dribble.”

Her remarks came last night on the Fox News program she hosts, “The Ingraham Angle.” Earlier in the day on James’ Uninterrupted website video, he and Durant issued negative remarks on President Trump. They were queued up for their comments by ESPN SportsCenter host Cari Champion, who interviewed them as she drove them around James’ hometown of Akron, Ohio.

Ingraham prefaced the playing of the video by saying, “NBA star LeBron James is talking politics again, and this time it’s R-rated. Here’s a barely intelligible, not to mention ungrammatical take, on President Trump in a new ESPN podcast”:

James: “The climate is hot. The No. 1 job in America, the appointed person is someone who doesn’t understand the people. And really don’t give a f— about the people. When I was growing up, there was like three jobs that you looked (to) for inspiration. It was the president of the United States, it was whoever was the best in sports and then it was like the greatest musician at the time. You never thought you could be them, but you can grab inspiration from them.

“With the president of the United States, it’s at a bad time. While we cannot change what comes out of that man’s mouth, we can continue to alert the people that watch us, that listen to us, ‘This is not the way.’ It’s not even a surprise when he says something. It’s like laughable. It’s laughable and it’s scary.”

Durant: “I feel like our team as a country is not ran by a great coach.”

James had previously appeared in a PSA for ObamaCare, and that tells you everything you need to know about his politics. Both players virtually promised to launch more shots in the “social justice league” going forward.

Ingraham lashed back, “Must they run their mouths like that? Unfortunately, a lot of kids — and some adults — take these ignorant comments seriously. Oh, and LeBron and Kevin: You’re great players, but no one voted for you. Millions elected Trump to be their coach. So keep the political commentary to yourself or, as someone once said, shut up and dribble.”

The Fox host also called a “personal foul” on James’ credibility because he went straight from high school to the NBA, forgoing a college degree:

“Look, there might be a cautionary lesson in LeBron for kids: This is what happens when you attempt to leave high school a year early to join the NBA. And it’s always unwise to seek political advice from someone who gets paid a hundred-million dollars a year to bounce a ball.”

Ingraham’s comments unleashed a torrent of tweets from angry liberals, including James’ pal Dwyane Wade, of the Miami Heat. Wade tweeted that Ingraham’s remarks were just further evidence of racism:

Male elementary school principal comes out as ‘female,’ tells parents what to say to kids

SWAMPSCOTT, Massachusetts, February 13, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – A 52-year-old Elementary school principal announced to his school community that he is a ‘woman’ and will begin dressing up as a female in school.

Stanley School Principal Tom Daniels wrote students, parents, teachers, and administrators on February 6, telling them that he will be using the name “Shannon.” He stated his preferred pronouns.

“I can now say it: I am transgender. For me, that means I identify as both a male and female, and I plan to move toward presenting myself and identifying as female,” he wrote, adding: “As I nurture my new identity, I will most likely be presenting myself differently. “

He explained in a letter that he has had feelings like he’s a girl for forty years, and now has the courage to “do the right thing” and present as female.  Shannon is his middle name and because it is androgynous, it “perfectly denot[es] my fluid gender.”

Family Research Council’s (FRC) Peter Sprigg told LifeSiteNews that children will likely be confused and distressed to witness the ‘transition’ of their male school principal. 

“Children do not have the cognitive capacity to understand something which could upend their own developing sense of a secure, natural identity as male or female,” the FRC Senior Fellow for Policy Studies explained.

“Mr. Daniels’ case is even more extreme (and likely confusing to the children), because he is not merely changing from a [male to female] identity, but claims that he identifies ‘as both a male and female,’ but is going to ‘move toward’ presenting and identifying as female,” the family advocate continued.  “Children should not be subjected to such social engineering.”

Daniels, who has been married 29 years and has fathered three children (16, 18 and 23), said he woke up one morning thinking, “Who am I and what do I want?”  He answered himself, “Internally I’m a female and I want to be one.”

“This is exactly why ‘gender identity’ should not be a protected category in non-discrimination policies or laws,” Sprigg concluded, “because there are circumstances in which changing gender identity can actually harm others. We have already heard anecdotal accounts of children who fear that they will turn into the opposite sex —even though they have no desire to do so.”

Superintendent Pamela Angelakis is helping Daniels to ‘transition.’ She praised his “courage, honesty and transparency.”

Both Principal Daniels and Superintendent Angelakis have told parents how they can discuss the ‘transition’ with their children.

They provide the following three talking points: 

  • There are many different ways boys and girls express themselves. It is important that we accept everyone as they are.
  • Principal Daniels may look and sound different, but inside Principal Daniels is the same caring person.
  • This doesn’t change the fact that Stanley School is a great place to be and learn.

Other school officials across the country have also declared that they are transgender.

Last year female principal Asa Sevelius of Heath School in Massachusetts announced that she was “transgender” and would begin the ‘transition’ to male. In 2014, male teacher Robert Reuter declared himself transgendered and demanded that everyone at Janney Elementary School in the Washington D.C. area refer to him as “Ms. Rebecca Reuter.”

Jewish Writer Hertzberg Tells Us of Voltaire’s Warning of Jews are “Deadly to the Human Race”

Jewish Writer Hertzberg Tells Us of Voltaire’s Warning of Jews are “Deadly to the Human Race”


Today Duke had a discussion with British author Andy Hitchcock. They talked about a 50-year-old article in the New York Review of Books written by a Jewish rabbi by the name of Arthur Hertzberg, who reviewed the book The French Enlightenment and the Jews, which tried to make the case that the French Enlightenment giant Voltaire was not an anti-semite. Hertzberg disagreed, quoting Voltaire as saying “The Kaffirs, the Hottentots, and the Negroes of Guinea are much more reasonable and more honest people than your ancestors, the Jews. You have surpassed all nations in impertinent fables, in bad conduct, and in barbarism. You deserve to be punished, for this is your destiny.”

He went on to quote Voltaire as saying about the Jews “They are, all of them, born with raging fanaticism in their hearts, just as the Bretons and the Germans are born with blond hair. I would not be in the least bit surprised if these people would not some day become deadly to the human race.”

Police Facebook Page Tells Parents to Respect the Gun or They will Kill Their Kids


The pro-police page, Thin Blue Line either just had one helluva a come to Jesus experience, have been hacked, or made one of the most insane admissions by police we have ever seen. Regardless of the motive behind the post, however, the internet is destroying them.

Below is a screen capture of the post which advocates killing children for being bad. The post reads as follows: “Parents, Please stop telling your children that we will haul them off to jail if they are bad. We are far more likely to shoot them, regardless of how they behave. …Far more likely.”



The Thin Blue Line page is without a doubt a police promoting page as they sell their apparel and post memes honoring police officers.

On Sunday night, the page posted about a dozen police propaganda memes on everything from how all cops are heroes to laughing about incarcerating people for cannabis. In the middle of this meme bomb, however, was the gem shown above.

Adding to the cryptic nature of this post is the fact that the page is getting torn apart by the internet and now, two days later, the meme remains on their page.

In spite of the 180,000 fans who follow the Thin Blue Line Facebook Page, the comments on the post show that there are far more people coming from all over the web to take issue with the post.

While some of their fans quickly pointed out the obvious, by stating, “This is anti cop. Why would you post this?” and “Somebody better take this down fast. This is not funny,” others have used the moment to draw attention to the horrific problem of police killings in the US.

While the meme may be a tad bit exaggerated, the fact remains that police in America last year killed nearly 100 times more Americans than terrorists.

In the United States, in 2017, according to the government data, eight events took place on American soil that were classified as acts of terrorism. The combined death toll from all eight terroristic acts in 2017 is 12. Twelve people were killed on American soil by other people attempting to make a political statement through an act of violence and yet we are told the threat of terror inside the United States is at an all-time high. Nothing could be further from the truth.

However, there is another number that is particularly worrisome and it has to do with how many people American police have killed this year. As of the publishing of this article, the number of people who were killed by police in 2017 is 1,189. This is nearly 100 times the number of people killed by terrorists inside the United States this year and yet the government and the media at large remain entirely silent on this violent epidemic.

Indeed, we are only 37 days into 2018 and police have killed 127 people. One of those people killed by police was a 16-year-old boy who was in a courthouse surrounded by cops and was unarmed. His name was Joseph Haynes.

Whatever the intention behind the now-viral meme, it’s purpose is being served and awareness is being raised. Perhaps an admin on the page thought it was time to bring about change to the violent and deadly tactics of American cops, or, perhaps, they were hacked. Either way, we are glad it is still up because until Americans address the problem of police killings in America, they will continue and this meme is forcing the conversation.

What the Release of the Memo Tells Us About Our Country


This is one those moments when a picture is worth a thousand words.


The memo is out and the moral indignation expressed by Fox News and the Republican Party is so fake, that I can barely keep my breakfast down. Hypocrisy rules the day.

There are no surprises in the memo, it read exactly like I knew it would. In fact, I was disappointed in some respects, because my investigations and the investigations of my Independent Media colleagues were more complete than the so-called memo. If the Republicans were smart, and they aren’t, they would have had several Independent Media types acting as consultants and you would not have had just a four page summary, you would have had a volume of books. But thank God for small favors, at least the unaware members of the public can see that the members of the Independent Media are much more than a pack of conspiracy theorists and delusional wannabe journalists. In fact, a former academia colleague told me “I was glad to see that some of your conspiracy theories are true”. I really had to clench my fist to keep the middle finger from emerging.

This article, in part, will examine the reactions to the memo. It is my hope that the American people will begin to see that we are not fighting for our country based on political, social and economic isssues. We are fighting against abject evil which is intent on destroying everything that is good and they are doing their best to destroy America, Christianity and the family. But first, a word about political parties.

I don’t care much for political parties. They remind me of gang warfare. We have the Democrips and the Republicbloods. In gang warfare, the welfare of the community be damned, it is all about protecting one’s turf. And the so-called turf is about maintaining their illegitimate business opportunities. It is the same in gang warfare as it is in political parties.

Gangster related drive-by-shootings produce stray bullets that kill innocent people. Today’s political parties do the same thing. The country be damned, it is only about protecting one’s turf and if a few people get hurt, so be it!

In today’s political climate, the Republicbloods have discovered that appearing to do the right thing has political capital because the general public is fed up. However, don’t be deceived, Al Capone was the first to form breadlines and soup kitchens during the Depression in order to gather favor and support from the public.

The Democrips are working from a paradigm that is outdated and is based on the philosophy that “if enough handouts are provided, we can do whatever else we want including murder and child sex trafficking (ie Seth Rich and John Podesta, respectively)”. How else could one explain a political party that would tolerate someone like the Clintons, their serial criminality including the long trail of bodies?  Don’t forget about Nancy Pelosi. She is the ultimate mafia whore who defends the “Godfather” at all costs. Every time I see here prune face on CNN, I become nauseated. But the Republicbloods also have John McCain and Lindsay Graham and don’t forget about the Bush’s who start wars of occupation that murder millions of innocent people. And all of the aforementioned cast of gangsters are traitors to the Republic. As a teenager might say, “Political Parties such, really suck”. Therefore if the country permanently aligns with the Republicans, we gain nothing.

It is important to realize that the memo was the result of a bipartisan investigation. The Democrats enjoyed equal participation and helped write the memo. The Democrats were fine with the content of the memo so long as the classified material did not become public where the general public could see the blatant criminality of the people connected to the Obama administration, all Democrats. The moment that there was discussion of making the contents public, the Democrats claimed this was a corrupt GOP investigation only. I even heard the moron, Senator Chris Murphy (D-CT), tell CNN that the Russians had infiltrated the House Intelligence Committee and they were responsible for the conclusions of the memo. And if that was not bad enough, Adam Shiff (for brains) said “the only reason that the public wanted to know the contents of the memo is because they were being influenced by the Russian bots and trolls that control our internet!”

The release of the memo confirms what we already know to be true about the FBI. Although the villianous J. Edgar Hoover is dead, the present day FBI, stemming from the leadership of Robert Mueller and James Comey, have managed to maintain the criminal enterprise nature of the Bureau. I have a long-term friend at the FBI and this person said the FBI should be shut down, everyone fired and then hire back only the most trustworthy and competent.

The memo confirms the legitmacy of the belief that organized criminal cartels run this country. And yes my fellow Americans, Bill and Hillary, the Clinton Foundation and the leadership of the DNC along with Obama and his top level administrators all have their hands dirty and the work of the Independent Media has been validated.

If we lived in a total bannana republic, all of the aformentioned criminals would be taken out and shot. If we were a virtuous society, we would put these people on trial and send them to prison for the rest of their lives. However, nothing is going to happen. Hillary Clinton will continue to run for President so long as she’s alive.

Why will nothing happen? Nothing will happen because the Republicans and Fox News have already achieved their respective goals. The Republicbloods have smeared the Democrips and improved their 2018 midterm election position. Fox News appears more honest than the Democratic mouthpiece, CNN.


For now the war is over,  only the dust is settling back to earth and all will eventually be forgiven. Nobody of prominence will go to jail. This is why I belong to one political party, the party of eternal life, the party of ultimate justice and fair play, I belong to the party of Jesus Christ.

By the way, I wonder how long it will be until the Democrips investigate Jesus Christ? After all, isn’t the Son of God Homophobic, Islamophobic and a product of white privilege?

Re: South Africa tells UN: Israel is only apartheid state in the world today

The South African government has described Israel as the only apartheid state in the world, in remarks made at a session of the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) in Geneva.

Speaking during Israel’s Universal Periodic Review, a process by which every UN member has its human rights record assessed every five years, South Africa’s representative said that Israel is the “only state in the world that can be described as an apartheid state”.

The comments were quoted in a tweet by John Fisher, Geneva director of Human Rights Watch.

Speaking ahead of the meeting, Fisher’s colleague at Human Rights Watch, Omar Shakir, said that the global rights NGO had conducted its own review of Israel’s record, finding that Israel has “carried out war crimes”, as well as “institutional discrimination against Palestinians”.

Other member states, including Germany, highlighted and criticised Israel’s policies of “collective punishment” in the occupied Palestinian territory, such as house demolitions.

Toronto Police tells pedestrians: "Road safety – It starts with you."

Telling people to “cross the street as if your life depends on it” is just going to scare people out of walking. But hey, it worked for bikes!

Four pedestrians have died on the streets of Toronto, Canada since the year began. One of them was crossing a street from a bus stop, hundreds of yards from the nearest crosswalk; two were seniors. So, logically, the Police have started a new pedestrian safety campaign titled Road safety… It starts with you.

It appears to be modelled on a New York City campaign, given that it is Madison Avenue in the photo.

The Toronto campaign changes the word street to road, which I suppose solves the little TM trademark problem in the New York ad.

I have written about these kinds of campaigns many times, most recently when they did the shared responsibility thing in Alberta. My biggest concern with them is that walking is one of the healthiest things you can do, and we want people do do more of it. Instead, we have the Police creating a culture of fear, term I learned from Mikael Colville-Andersen of Copenhagenize. He wrote:

Programs indirectly or directly implying that walking and cycling are dangerous are freely using classic Culture of Fear techniques to scare cyclists and pedestrians….Their baseline is clear. Cars are here to stay – everyone else either get out of the way or bubble wrap yourself. What this communication subculture doesn’t talk about is rather telling. Basically anything that would brand cars as the problem – or reducing the number of cars.

There are no campaigns to control pickups or SUVs, even though they kill at three times the rate of cars. There are no campaigns warning people that driving is the most dangerous thing people do in their daily lives. There are no campaigns to put helmets on drivers, even though it might save thousands of lives. There are no campaigns to make all cars high-viz or to ban distractions in cars.

Instead, the Toronto Police tell pedestrians to stop listening to music.

There is no discussion of how the growth in the number of pedestrian fatalities is inversely proportional to the number of speeding tickets handed out in Toronto.

There is no discussion of the real #visionzero things that could be done, like fixing our infrastructure and making the roads safe for cyclists and pedestrians as well as safer for drivers.

This is how we get a city where people drive their kids to school because they don’t believe walking is safe. Where every time you cross the street you have to act like it is Death Race 2000 and your life is at risk. Where it’s clear, as has been shown time and time again in Toronto, that the Police do not want pedestrians in the street slowing down car. But it’s the cars that are doing the killing; go after them instead of scaring pedestrians off the streets. This is really just a cop-out.
