Bohemian Grove: Where the rich and powerful go to misbehave

 


Two future U.S. presidents, Ronald Reagan and Richard Nixon, are pictured with Harvey Hancock (standing) and others at Bohemian Grove in the summer of 1967. (Ernest Orlando Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory.) Correction: This article originally stated that the Bohemian Grove encampment begins today. It begins in mid-July.

Every July, some of the richest and most powerful men in the world gather at a 2,700 acre campground in Monte Rio, Calif., for two weeks of heavy drinking, super-secret talks, druid worship (the group insists they are simply “revering the Redwoods”), and other rituals.

Their purpose: to escape the “frontier culture,” or uncivilized interests, of common men.

The people that gather at Bohemian Grove — who have included prominent business leaders, former U.S. presidents, musicians, and oil barons — are told that “Weaving Spiders Come Not Here,” meaning business deals are to be left outside. One exception was in 1942, when a planning for the Manhattan Project took place at the grove, leading to the creation of the atom bomb.

A spokesperson for Bohemian Grove say the people that gather there “share a passion for the outdoors, music, and theater.”

The club is so hush-hush that little can be definitively said about it, but much of what we know today is from those who have infiltrated the camp, including Texas-based filmmaker Alex Jones. In 2000, Jones and his cameraman entered the camp with a hidden camera and were able to film a Bohemian Grove ceremony, Cremation of the Care. During the ceremony, members wear costumes and cremate a coffin effigy called “Care” before a 40-foot-owl, in deference to the surrounding Redwood trees.

Bohemian Grove’s spokesperson calls the ceremony “a traditional musical drama celebrating nature and summertime.” The spokesperson also said that while Jones’ comments are inaccurate, the footage is real.

Watch the controversial footage of the ceremony below:

Another infiltrator, Spy magazine writer Philip Weiss, posed as a guest for seven days in 1989, when the waiting list was 33 years long and the grove had several thousand members. Weiss published the article “Inside Bohemian Grove,” writing: “You know you are inside the Bohemian Grove when you come down a trail in the woods and hear piano music from amid a group of tents and then round a bend to see a man with a beer in one hand … urinating into the bushes. This is the most gloried-in ritual of the encampment, the freedom of powerful men to pee wherever they like, a right the club has invoked when trying to fight government anti-sex discrimination efforts and one curtailed only when it comes to a few popular redwoods just outside the Dining Circle.”

Former President Bill Clinton once told a heckler, “The Bohemian club! Did you say Bohemian club? That’s where all those rich Republicans go up and stand naked against redwood trees right? I’ve never been to the Bohemian club but you oughta go. It’d be good for you. You’d get some fresh air.”

The Sonoma County Free Press, which has published investigative stories on the grove since at least the 1980s, says activities include plays and comedy shows in which women are portrayed by male actors, and Lakeside Talks, in which high-ranking officials speak about information not available to the public. The group calls them “public interest talks.”

Protests take place at the Bohemian Grove nearly ever year. This year’s protest is organized by the California State Greens and endorsed by other social activist groups.

Bohemian Grove’s 2011 retreat begins in mid-July. We don’t suggest any infiltrators try to make their way through the entrance, guarded by camp valets and redwoods some 200 feet in height. It didn’t end too well for the last Vanity Fair editor who tried it.

HISTORY CHANNEL: Sex in the Ancient World Pompeii – Pimps in Roman Times – GRAPHIC!

EDITORIAL: It would seem that in thousands of years, nothing has really changed at all!

Discoveries of erotic paintings and artifacts have given the cities a distinctly racy reputation. But is this deserved, asks Joanne Berry ahead of the ‘Life and Death in Pompeii and Herculaneum’ exhibition at the British Museum.

Bedroom, brothel, Pompeii (060313)

By Joanne Berry

7:00AM GMT 03 Mar 2013

One of the features of Pompeii and Herculaneum that often surprises modern visitors is the frequency of erotic images. Erotic art is found all over the cities, in private houses, public buildings and on the street façades. It so shocked the sensibilities of the earliest excavators that erotic art and objects were removed from the excavations by order of the Bourbon King Charles III and kept under lock and key. Later, in 1817, a “Secret Cabinet” was created in which these items were displayed at the Royal Museum at Naples – but only to important male visitors with express permission.

There was no attempt to hide away explicit scenes in the cities, although it is fair to say that there are different categories of erotic art that are displayed in different contexts. Firstly, a particularly common find are phalluses and images of Priapus (in paintings and mosaics, in the form of decorative lamps, and, on one street, carved into a paving stone). These, however, may not have been intended as erotic symbols but as charms to ward off the “evil eye” and ensure prosperity. It is perhaps for this reason that a large wall-painting of Priapus, with enormous phallus, is found at the entrance to the House of the Vettii in Pompeii. Another famous example is the phallus carved into terracotta outside a bakery with the following slogan above and below it: “Good fortune dwells here.”

ALRIVes0313PompeiiBrothel

Other categories are more overtly sexual in nature. There are abundant mythological scenes, displayed openly in different rooms of private houses. Common scenes include Venus and Mars, and Pan with a nymph. These scenes are suggestive rather than explicit. Then there are sexually explicit, realistic, scenes, most commonly found in private spaces such as bedrooms, and back rooms, and in what may have been brothels.

An exception to this rule can be seen in the Suburban Baths in Pompeii. The apodyterium (changing-room) of these baths had once been decorated with erotic scenes, displayed in numbered boxes. There has been much debate over their function. Did they represent a sex manual, were they advertisements for a brothel in the baths, or were they merely designed to entertain and titillate? Whatever the case, by AD79 these scenes had been covered over with new, non-erotic, decoration.

There is plenty of evidence for prostitution at Pompeii, but there is disagreement over the number of brothels because the identification of such properties is not straightforward. Traditionally they have been identified on the basis of explicit graffiti or wall-paintings. But, as we have seen, erotic art was extremely common in the Roman world; in addition, explicit graffiti need not relate to sex for money or mark the precise location of a brothel. Some scholars have argued for the existence of between nine and 35 brothels in Pompeii. But only one premises, known as the Lupanar, appears to have been purpose-built as one. The five rooms of the upper floor were accessed by a separate entrance. The lower floor had five small rooms with masonry beds and the hallway was decorated with explicit wall-paintings.

REALITY CHECK: Jenna Jameson with Jim Norton & Sam Roberts on Kids, Tito Ortiz, Porn & More

 EDITORIAL: It’s very sad to watch. It’s like they’ve broken her so bad and everyone just acts like no big deal. Tomorrow, we’ll see a headline somewhere or a talk show host pimping pornography to teens and young women as a great career choice. Run ins with the law, DUIs and drug use. Foreclosed home. Does this sound like Jenna Jameson is on top of any World??

This is the reality of porn, folks. It don’t get no more real than this. This wasn’t just exhaustion you’re seeing. She may or may not being doing illegal drugs but she’s definitely wasted on something besides lack of sleep. We all know doctors hand out pills to celebrities like they are skittles. And celebrities think they’re not lying if they say they’re not on drugs as long as they have a prescription to get wasted!

This interview should’ve been stopped. NO ONE there protected her. It’s like they set her up to take a public fall. This interview just sealed her fate to not get her kids back anytime soon and maybe not even visitation at all. She left porn and now they’re getting their revenge on her as they do with all who refuse to pimp and promote them. You turn your back on Porn Valley and this is what they pay the media to do to ya to get you back. Yep!

She never got a chance to grow up and be a real woman. She never got to grow up and be a real mom. She keeps talking about boys instead of men and playing with her hair like a little girl. I see this and I think of how this is what Porn Valley wanted to do to my beautiful baby girl.They regress them back to puberty mentally and emotionally and then they keep them there so it’s easier to exploit them and pimp them to men as girls instead of women.

My daughter would come home from spending time with them and she’d act like a 12 year old. Literally. I’d have to get in her face and push her to come back. She’d get very angry at times but then the real her would finally come out. I know if I hadn’t been there to keep reminding her of who she really was, her mind would’ve been gone forever and she would’ve be gone forever too. Yep, she could’ve been just like Jenna Jameson. That’s who media had told her she wanted to be. Would YOU want YOUR DAUGHTER to be her now?? I sure didn’t!!

Thank you, God, for helping me save her and that she’s not. You know I need Your help big time now to save the rest of the daughters, Dear Lord. Please work inside the hearts of every single person who sees this video so that their eyes may be opened and their minds turned off porn forever. Let them understand the full weight of what happens to the teens and women who end up in Porn Valley. It’s time for the Truth to set us all free. Amen!!

Jenna, I so hope you get help. You deserve some real happiness. Get some help and give yourself some happiness with a normal guy and your kids. They are out there and you CAN do it. These guys were NOT your friends. They just hurt you. Stop letting these people hurt you. They will ALL exploit you.

Get help and find friends and a man who will treat you right. Please!!

Jenna Jameson’s Hollywood Hills mansion auctioned off for $1.8M after former adult star faces foreclosure

Looks like Jenna Jameson might have to go house hunting in the near future.

The former adult film star and business mogul recently lost her Hollywood Hills mansion due to  defaulting on the her mortgage payments.

The house was auctioned off by her bank for $1.8 million, reports TMZ.

According to the website, Jameson was notified in February of her delinquent status and that the I Dream of Jenna star owed close to $57,000 in mortgage payments.

Jameson allegedly put the house on the market earlier this year at $1.9 million, but was unable to find a buyer.

After she was unable to move the house on the market, Jameson continued to default on her payments to the bank, reports TMZ.

Her bank then reportedly obtained a final judgement against her in June for the full amount of her mortgage to the tune of $2 million.

The three-bedroom, 3,958-square-foot house was originally purchased by 39-year-old Jameson for $2.7 million in 2006.

In 2008, after she began a relationship with Ultimate Fighting champion Tito Ortiz, it was reported the couple bought a $3.4 million, four bedroom, 3.5 bath mansion in Huntington Beach and moved in together.

During the time that the couple were living together in Orange County, Jameson rented out the Los Angeles mansion.

In recent years, the home allegedly sustained substantial water damage and Jameson opted to not fix the house, which she deemed not worth the expense. Soon after, she is said to have stopped paying the bank on her mortgage.

Jameson recently ran into trouble last April, when the former porn star was arrested for battery as she assaulted her assistant with a brass knuckle iPhone case.  

Jameson is no longer with Ortiz, the father of her twin boys Journey and Jess.

HISTORY CHANNEL: America’s Book of Secrets: Serial Killers – America, the World’s Top Producer of Killers

EDITORIAL: Last year, we watched as President Obama called for more studies on the correlation between violent pornography, video games and entertainment and mass shootings and statistics show us America has a tendency to create more mass murderers and serial rapists and killers than any other country in the World.

The fact that America creates most of the violent and hyper-sexualized content in question in our societies today, directly supports the multitude of research that proves violent content, however it’s presented, will alter a person’s personality and behavior, in a negative manner, more times than not.

An overwhelming mountain of evidence is there but even more compelling is the firsthand experiences of those harmed by these damaging products and services pimped to our societies as innocent entertainment.

It’s not innocent entertainment. It’s your child’s future!!

BBC Scotland Investigates ‘Sins of Our Fathers’

Published on Aug 12, 2013

BBC Scotland Broadcast 29 July 2013

Documentary Claimed Two Heads Covered Up Abuse

FORT Augustus Abbey school in the Highlands was once Scotland’s most prestigious Catholic boarding school, based on the banks of Loch Ness and run by an order of Benedictine monks.

However, evidence has emerged that over a 30-year period pupils were victims of serious physical and sexual abuse including rape.

An investigation by BBC Scotland alleged that two headmasters, Francis Davidson and Augustine Grene, covered up abuse by monks.

Father Aidan Duggan, an Australian monk who taught at Carlkemp, a preparatory school in East Lothian and Fort Augustus was said by five former pupils to have raped and sexually abused them between 1953 and 1974.

One former pupil told his parents that he had been raped only to be called into the headmaster’s office and told that lying was a mortal sin, it was reported. Duggan returned to Australia in 1974 and became a parish priest in Sydney. However, no warnings were made by the Benedictines and he allegedly continued to abuse. He died in 2004.

A second Benedictine monk, Father “Chrysostom” Alexander, allegedly repeatedly sexually abused a pupil at Fort Augustus.

He told his parents who complained to the school and as a result Fr Alexander was sent back to Australia, again with no warnings about his behaviour.

Fr Alexander, who is now 77, is the subject of an investigation by Police Scotland.

The revelations, made in a recent BBC documentary, The Sins of Our Fathers, contained evidence against nine Fort Augustus monks. When confronted Fr Alexander refused to answer questions but the Catholic Church in Sydney has since stripped him of his priestly faculties pending an investigation.

 

BBC ONE: Abused – Breaking the Silence

Chris Harvey reviews BBC One’s harrowing documentary about former pupils of two Catholic preps schools who allege they suffered sexual abuse at the hands of Rosminian Fathers.

The BBC One documentary Abused: Breaking the Silence told the extraordinary story of how the internet helped expose a culture of violence and abuse at two Catholic prep schools in England and Africa that went back at least 50 years. Olenka Frenkiel’s film described how former pupils who had logged on to share memories of two schools run by the Rosminian order – the Grace Dieu school in Leicestershire and St Michael’s school in Soni, in what is now Tanzania – found themselves sharing stories of abuse that, as boys, they believed had been suffered alone. The men were now in their fifties and sixties. Each had been terrified into silence as a child.

Account followed account. Rory Johnston, a former pupil of the school in Soni, alleged serious and repetitive sexual abuse at the hands of a Fr Collins. “There was no way I could get out of it,” he said. “There was no one to tell. You couldn’t trust the priests, so who else are you going to trust?”

The conversations between the victims also revealed something else. Father Collins had been removed from the Grace Dieu school after Donald MacFaul, now a barrister in Newcastle, had complained about him. The Order, however, had simply relocated the priest to Soni, where pupils said they became similarly terrified of him.

In Soni, it became clear, there was more than one abuser. Some had later gone on to high notice. Fr Kit Cunningham, who became the rector of St Ethelreda’s in London’s Holborn, would receive an MBE. “He sexually molested me,” said one former pupil. “Then made it clear if I ever said anything I would be in trouble.” Events were remembered minutely and many described the depression and “permanent sense of fear and dread” left behind. When Cunningham died at the end of last year he received several laudatory obituaries.

In September 2009, the former pupils had compiled a dossier of abuse and confronted the Order. It was taken seriously. The men began to receive letters from their former teachers, now elderly, confessing to sexual abuse and sadism and expressing contrition. One received a letter from Fr Cunningham asking for forgiveness. (Cunningham also returned his MBE.) The current head of the Order invited the victims to meet their abusers.

48 HOURS VIDEO: Long Island Serial Killer Case: Who Let Down the Lost Girls? According to This, Police Did!!

CBS 48 Hours – July 20, 2013 11:15 PM

"Lost Girls" by Robert Kolker“Lost Girls” by Robert Kolker

/ HarperCollins

Guest blogger Robert Kolker is the author of “Lost Girls: An Unsolved American Mystery”. The opinions below are his own and do not necessarily reflect those of CBS News.

The neighbors’ silence in the days, weeks, and months that followed Shannan Gilbert’s mysterious disappearance in Oak Beach never ceases to be troubling. And when four bodies in burlap were found nearby along Ocean Parkway, no neighbors came forward to offer sympathy. To me, that spoke volumes about this remote, secluded community, where outsiders are viewed with suspicion and contempt.

The police may not have behaved much better. “Lost Girls”, my book about the Long Island serial killer case, is a comprehensive investigation of the case, featuring exclusive interviews with Joseph Brewer, Dr. Peter Hackett, and dozens of neighbors, family members, friends, and acquaintances of the killer’s victims. My interviews with then-commissioner Richard Dormer and then-chief of detectives Dominick Varrone revealed a troubling bias against the victims. On May 5, 2011, at a meeting of the Public Safety Committee of the Suffolk County Legislature, Varrone called it a “consolation” that the killer didn’t appear to be “selecting citizens at large — he’s selecting from a pool.” On Dec. 12, 2011, in an interview with me, Varrone said of the victims: “[G]reed gets the best of them. In fact, most of them are in the business that they’re in because it’s an easy way to make money, and because they’re greedy.” In that same interview, both Dormer and Varrone have a laugh at the expense of the victims’ families — people who have been struggling for answers ever since their loved ones became part of this case.

In “Lost Girls”, I show how this case was hobbled from the start because the initial disappearances weren’t taken as seriously by law enforcement as they would have been if these women weren’t written off as prostitutes. I tell the story of how all five women were failed by the criminal justice system not once but three times. The police failed to help them when they were at risk. They’d failed again when they didn’t take the disappearances seriously, severely hobbling the chances of making an arrest. And they failed a third time by not going after the johns and drivers.

Video: “48 Hours”: Long Island Serial Killer

“Lost Girls” also is the first examination of what made the victims so vulnerable to predators. I have visited the hometowns of each woman and interviewed their loved ones. Readers can see how they were so much more than what the police and many Oak Beach neighbors assumed they were. I also show in detail how five young women were drawn into the choice to become an escort. One major enticement, of course, is the money — so much more than what they could make in their struggling hometowns, where the economy has never recovered.

The other reason is the Internet — its ease and its anonymity. As I write in “Lost Girls”, “Shannan, Maureen, Melissa, Megan, and Amber took part in a modern age of prostitution in which clients are lured with the simple tap of a computer keyboard rather than the exhausting, demeaning ritual of walking the streets. The method is easier, seductively so, almost like an ATM — post an ad, and the phone rings seconds later — but also deceptive about its dangers.”

The lives of Shannan, Maureen, Melissa, Megan, and Amber as recounted in “Lost Girls” tell us an important lesson about the hard choices many face in America, and the way our society sometimes lets down those who need our help the most.

WEBCAST: UN Study Men’s Violence Against Women … Buyers of Sex Significantly More Likely to Perpetrate Violence Against Women!

Partners for Prevention – Saturday 9 March 2013

New York – UNDP, UNFPA, UN Women and UNV presented the latest research from their Partners for Prevention Regional Joint Programme at the CSW57 side event: ‘Why do men use violence and how do we stop it? New evidence on men’s use of violence against women and girls and its uses for enhanced prevention.’

“We know men are the primary perpetrators of violence. But not all men use violence and many men oppose it. To stop violence before it starts we need to understand the root causes of men’s use of violence, why some men are more likely to use different types of violence and also why some men oppose it,” said James Lang, Programme Coordinator of Partners for Prevention.

Coordinated by Partners for Prevention, a UNDP, UNFPA, UN Women and UNV regional joint programme for gender-based violence prevention in Asia and the Pacific, and co-sponsored by the Australian Government, Government of Sweden and WHO, the side event shared cutting edge new knowledge from a collaborative multi-country study focused on men’s use and experiences of violence against women and girls.

In this study, 10,178 men from selected sites in Bangladesh, Cambodia, China, Indonesia, Papua New Guinea and Sri Lanka responded to representative population-based household surveys. These men were asked about their childhoods, relationships, health, sexual practices, gender attitudes and use of violence against women and girls. The study thus provides ground-breaking new knowledge on how to effectively prevent violence against women and girls.

Focusing on the preliminary research findings, a panel of experts discussed the implications of the findings and how they can be applied to enhance prevention programmes and policies. Specifically the panel highlighted what men have said about their uses of and experiences of different types of violence, and what we can do in the future to stop it before it starts.

Gloria Steinem Challenges BBC Presenter on Violence Against Women – “Feminism Needed More Than Ever Before”

Women Under Siege Project – By Lauren Wolfe/Director — March 7, 2013

On Tuesday, Gloria Steinem, who originated WMC’s Women Under Siege, spoke to BBC “Hardtalk” presenter Stephen Sackur about the women’s movement. But I wanted to do more than point you to the video (which you can watch here) and highlight something I found particularly interesting about their chat.

Below is the full transcript of the segment, which starts out with a simple question of relevance—with all of Steinem’s experience, where does she see the movement now? However, as you’ll read, the back and forth devolves quite quickly, with Sackur interrupting in seeming disbelief when Steinem suggests that feminism is more urgently needed than ever before because of what we’ve learned about violence against women and war.

When she explains her thinking (and ours) that “the root of democracy outside the home is democracy inside the home,” Sackur interjects, arguing that most women in what he terms the “Western, developed” world would say they “have democracy in the home.”

Steinem in a screenshot of her BBC interview with Sackur.

I’ll leave it to Steinem to answer this assertion in her own, powerful words, but first I want to show you why what she’s saying about the home vs. the public realm is essential to figuring out how to stop the horrifyingly high rates of sexualized violence against women—and its attending victim-blaming and shaming—in conflict and in public spaces around the world. It is a concept emphasized by Valerie Hudson, a professor of government at Texas A&M University:

“The template for living with other human beings who are different from us is forged within every society by the character of male-female relations,” Hudson writes in Foreign Policy. “In countries where males rule the home through violence, male-dominant hierarchies rule the state through violence.”

When nearly a third of men surveyed in the Democratic Republic of Congo—the so-called “rape capital of the world”—tell researchers that women “sometimes want to be raped and that when a woman is raped she may enjoy it,” we might want to consider this concept carefully.

When 17 senior cops across India are caught on camera “blaming everything from fashionable or revealing clothes to having boyfriends to visiting pubs to consuming alcohol to working alongside men as the main reasons for instances of rape” in a country that recently witnessed the public Boschian rape and murder of a young woman, we may want to take a close look at what is going on beneath the surface.

When a husband in Burma chastises his wife, newly raped by a soldier and returned home: “Prostitute! If you want to sell sex, we will build you a small hut in the jungle. You can sell sex there,” and her own children say to her: “Whore, you are not our mother, don’t come see us anymore,” we really, probably should pay attention to what Steinem, one of the world’s great thinkers on the struggles of women for safety and equality, is saying.

This morning, I was talking about this concept of democracy in the home vs. in the street with my friend, writer Soraya Chemaly. She emphasized that we spend way too much time ignoring commonplace gender inequality—that most of us don’t even see it, as if misogyny is the white background noise of our existence, that is, until something like the evisceration of the Dehli gang-rape briefly breaks through the unheard, continuous hum.

“What is processed in everyday life at the household level emerges as structure in society,” Chemaly explained. “We don’t think of them as inequities because they are invisible: traditionally, culturally sanctioned ways of organizing and behaving.”

Now, here’s what Steinem said to Sackur:

Stephen Sackur: Does the feminist cause feel as urgent to you today as when you rose to international prominence in the late ’60s, early ’70s?

Gloria Steinem: More. Because when we began, we were talking more about personal injustices, about domestic violence, about things that were within our ken, and now we’ve come to understand through length of work and also through international studies that the single most important factor in whether a country is violent within itself or willing to use violence against other countries, is violence against females. Because that normalizes—it’s the earliest, it’s the biggest…it’s not that female life is worth more than male life, it’s not, but that subject-object, conquered-conqueror kind of paradigm in varying degrees normalizes it everywhere else. And that now has been proved in depth. So in a way we’ve gone deeper now and seen how much more important it is.

[Click here for a story by Chemaly that explains more about the relationship between gender imbalance and propensity to engage in war.]

SS: So are you saying that the priorities of the women’s movement, if I can loosely call it that, have fundamentally changed, away from the sort of nuts and bolts sort of equal-pay-for-equal-work and, and, control of fertility, to something that is perhaps less tangible?

GS: No, no, no, what I’m saying is that the root of democracy outside the home is democracy inside the home, so it’s even more important. The root of violence elsewhere is the normalization of violence in an intimate way in the home.

SS: Sorry to interrupt, but when you put it like that it just makes me wonder whether most women these days in Western, developed societies would feel the same way that you do. Because when you talk about the importance of democracy in the home, wouldn’t most women in the developed world today feel that—

GS: No. Of course not.

SS: —they have democracy in the home.

GS: Of course not. Are you kidding? Do men raise children as much as women? No.

SS: But do women feel oppressed today in the way that they did in the ’60s and ’70s?

GS: Yes, more so because now, for instance, when we started we didn’t have a word for “domestic violence.” It was just called “life.” People would constantly say, “Why didn’t she leave?” “What did she do?” Now we understand that domestic violence is original violence.

And, for instance, in my country, there are…if you count up all the people who were killed in 9/11, plus Americans who were killed in Iraq and Afghanistan, and you count up all the women who were murdered by their husbands or boyfriends in the same amount of time, more women were murdered by their husbands and boyfriends than were killed in those three events.

To read more about Steinem’s thoughts on the normalization of violence in the world, take a look at this Q&A we did in 2012.

Geraldo Rivera’s infamous NBC News Special during the satanic explosion of the 1980’s, exposing the occult and satanic rituals.

EDITORIAL: Isn’t that around the same time the internet took off and pornography began the process of possessing the World”s souls??

Porn Valley, Hollywood and the music industry are full of Satanists. We also have to wonder how many of them are in our government protecting these industries who are pimping EVIL and who accepts their money made from the violation of our humanity and our youth’s innocence.Satanism recruits many middle and upper class teens who are rebelling against authority and end up in satanic cults where sexual abuse and violence against the good and innocent are celebrated and mandatory. Sound like what happened in Aurora, the nicest city in America, when a young white male walked into their movie theater and gunned down families and children? Sound like Sandy Hook Elementary School where 22 innocent children and wonderful teachers were gunned down by an angry young white male? EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THE SCHOOL AND COLLEGE SPREE AND MASS SHOOTINGS WERE YOUNG WHITE MALES FROM MIDDLE CLASS HOMES.

Your children’s music, television, internet usage and video games are ALL FULL OF SATANIC SYMBOLOGY. This is what they are ALL recruiting your children to. This is what’s growing the violence in America and all around the World! As said in this documentary, “It doesn’t matter if or what YOU believe about Satan. What matters is THEY DO believe and THEY will DO ANYTHING to further their worship of this EVIL!

EDITORIAL: Truthloader LIVE on Iceland’s Porn Ban! Providing a Choice IS NOT Censorship, NOT Providing a Choice IS!

EDITORIAL: The Pro-Porn speakers just keep spewing the same bogus statistics and solutions to the problem of porn addiction and the increasing sexual violence against women and children. Facts don’t support any of their arguments because their stats are produced by the pedophiles, sexual predators and torturers who want to legalize rape, torture, incest and child sex. Check out the Video below. As you can see, it stirred me up!!

Here’s a few comments I have regarding the panel’s discussion:

1. ALL violent porn should be banned. ANYONE who wants violent porn is for promoting a violent society. You can’t have it both ways. Promoting and glamorizing violence will normalize and increase it. Giving access to children will produce lifetime violent criminals. We’ve all heard several serial rapists and murderer’s own testimonies confirm this fact. There’s no such thing as a healthy violent sexual fantasy and there’s no such thing as being healthy and letting people beat and torture you. America’s porn industry is the ONLY legal industry that is ALLOWED to abuse and torture their workers and employees. I mean, they are now trying to normalize the cannibalizing of women and children.

That’s their satanism coming out and it’s sheer evil. Sex and satanic cults do believe they get power from sexually abusing and eating people. But notice it’s always the children and women. They don’t fantasize about eating men because it’s their violence and hatred against women that really drives their fantasy until it changes to reality!!

I’m not talking adults playing with furry handcuffs. I’m talking violence and abuse portrayed in porn. There’s also a huge difference between adults who, after some years of sexual experience, experiment with domination/submission and other sexual fantasies and fetishes, as long as they don’t escalate and include violence and abuse. But kids aren’t growing into this in their 30s and 40s like we did. They think triple penetration in group sex is a normal sexual relationship  BY THE AGE OF 16. Now media is pimping violence through 50 Shades of Grey. That equates to teen violence in dating AND children raping children when a child or teen sees it being promoted as healthy sex.

Violence is violence and it’s amazing to me that in 2013, we are having a hard time deciding whether we should include and allow violence against women in our society’s makeup. I thought violence against women went out with the caveman. Thought it was definitely gone when the Wild, Wild West was tamed. Or absolutely when Slavery was Abolished. What about the 60s?? Thought the last was stamped out then. Maybe we haven’t evolved so much after all and if so, we’re headed back to the stone age. You know what happened that time!!

2. Rape stats are NOT down. They are misrepresented in several ways. Police and prosecutors won’t file charges and fight for victims in court. They aren’t reported because the victim’s past and present sexuality is used against them EVERY TIME in court even though it shouldn’t matter!! Send one sext or purchase 50 Shades of Grey and a girl can’t win in acquaintance or date rape cases. Children don’t report for fear and lack of understanding. Many victims are drugged so have no real memory to report. Our society’s newest thing has been to brainwash people into thinking being a victim is weak so they won’t report. There are many, many reasons why sexual crime stats are being reported incorrectly and most of them are because there’s corruption in high places and these elitist criminals want to shame their victims into silence and compliance!

3. Parents CANNOT filter the world unless they lock kids in their homes. I swear, I want to smack someone every time they say that! Our government and corporations can’t seem to filter so just stop lying about it being an option. It’s fast becoming the BIGGEST LIE of the century!!

I think locking up your families is what it ‘s coming to sooner than later. Home school your children, take them ALL out of the system until the system makes a place that’s safe for them. Many libraries provide porn so kids can’t go there unless you sit next to them while online. Kids can’t go to friends homes unless all families in the group agree to filter and supervise. The list is endless and like trying to empty the ocean with a tablespoon.

ANYONE who doesn’t want to keep online porn from children is agreeing to corrupt, damage and steal the innocence of ALL CHILDREN. WHERE IS THE CHOICE TO OPT IN OR OPT OUT?? ANYONE who won’t agree to giving an OPTION to either OPT IN OR OPT OUT, wants to enslave and sexualize YOUR CHILDREN!!

There should be no rational adult who doesn’t agree there needs to be a switch either the governments or the parents can flip that shuts porn off to their computers. No filter out there does that. It takes the internet providers to PROVIDE. PEOPLE WANT CHOICE and if The People AREN’T given a CHOICE, It means THEY are AGAINST OUR RIGHT TO CHOOSE a different lifestyle than theirs. It means THEY are FORCING THEIR SICK, PERVERTED LIFESTYLES ON US AND OUR FAMILIES. They have taken away our RIGHT TO CHOOSE. I believe that’s against ALL of our Constitutional and God given rights and I wholeheartedly believe the majority WANTS  the CHOICE to opt in or opt out!!

The video is a great debate though pro-porn activists are much more pushy so get more face time every time. The reality is the majority of people WANT a choice. The reality is our AMERICAN government is full of pedophiles, sexual predators and torturers who don’t want to GIVE US A CHOICE because they want to ENSLAVE US ALL!!

You can’t have your cake and eat it too. There’s a reason that saying stuck around. If you want to provide erotic porn, NO VIOLENCE ALLOWED, put it in an adult only arena and let adults opt in or let those who don’t want porn to be able push one button and turn it all off. Providing a choice IS NOT censorship, NOT providing a choice IS!!

KNOW WHY they don’t want you to have a choice??

BECAUSE THEY WANT THE EVIL THAT THEY HAVE PUT UPON US ALL!!

JUST DO IT!!
