‘Although it is difficult to dispute the story’s central message that individuals who have a sexual attraction to children ‘need help,’ attempting to label pedophilia as a ‘sexual orientation’ crossed the red line for many readers.

In a recent BBC article entitled, ‘Paedophiles need help, not condemnation – I should know,’ we are ‘introduced’ to an anonymous 60-something male who opens this teary-eyed treatise by proclaiming, “It’s a long time since I’ve described myself as a paedophile. Paedophilia is a disorder, a deeply distressing sexual orientation. For me, it’s triggered by traumatic experiences in childhood.”

Did you catch it? If you blinked you missed it. Like one of those clunky bills rammed through Congress on Christmas Eve that is ‘sweetened’ with all sorts of hidden ‘riders,’ the opening line of the article declares that pedophilia now ranks – alongside hetereosexuality, homosexuality and bisexuality – as a “sexual orientation.” A “distressing” one for the pedophile, no doubt, but a sexual orientation nevertheless. But that is simply wrong.’

Sacked Reporter Was Given Stake in CIA Arms Smuggler’s Company

‘The Wall Street Journal today announced that it is sacking its chief foreign affairs correspondent, Jay Solomon, related to “ethical lapses” that were revealed in a Tuesday AP expose that revealed Solomon’s substantial ties to an arms dealer and smuggler for the CIA.

The AP investigation focused on Farhad Azima, an Iran-born magnate who had ferried weapons for the CIA, and founded a company, Denx LLC, that was trying to make a deal with the United Arab Emirates on a surveillance scheme intended to spy on Iran.

Solomon had been using Azima as a key source in his reporting for years, and the AP story found Azima offered Solomon a 10% stake in Denx LLC. Among the services Solomon was expected to provide was to secure a meeting with a top UAE official to sell him on the surveillance proposal.”’

‘Tucker Carlson, FOX News’ new primetime anchor, received a six-figure sum from the Donald Trump campaign for president through his Daily Caller operation–which rented out its email list to Trump–according to Center for Media and Democracy’s newest investigation. CMD estimates the amount to be $150K in cash from the campaign to Daily Caller, which paid Carlson an untold sum.

CMD’s investigation also uncovered troubling information about how Carlson’s non-profit charity, the Daily Caller News Foundation, benefits his private for-profit media site, The Daily Caller. The relationship between the two groups “raises significant questions about whether the (c)(3) is operating for private benefit instead of for a charitable or educational purpose consistent with its tax-exempt status,” according to Elizabeth Kingsley, a nonprofit tax expert at the D.C. law firm of Harmon, Curran, Spielberg + Eisenberg.’

‘Allowing children to have Facebook accounts is as dangerous as letting them go to a nightclub when they are just 11, the head of the NSPCC has said.

Peter Wanless, chief executive of the children’s charity, who has a 15 year-old son, said the online world had created ‘a new playground for predators’ who sought to take advantage of vulnerable young children.

Mr Wanless said: ‘There are risks that children and teens face on social media sites that are akin to letting them go into a nightclub.

‘That is why we think it is critically important that serious attention is now paid to this issue.’ His warning comes as the charity calls to the government to take urgent action.’

‘A great number of YouTube videos aimed at children contain creepy, disturbing, violent and sexual content. Some even border on child abuse. It is time to take a closer look at these videos that generate millions of views per day.

Warning: This article contains disturbing images … although they’re all taken from children’s videos.

There is no easier way to get small children to pipe down than handing them a tablet or a smartphone. Toddlers know how to launch YouTube, play videos and even navigate to other “recommended videos”. This keeps children silent and entertained for long periods of time – a luxury that busy parents greatly appreciate.’

‘With Amazon.com now purchasing Whole Foods, giving it a near-monopoly over multiple sectors of the U.S. economy, we are entering the age of corporate giants dominating and enslaving humankind. Apple has more debt-free cash than nearly all world governments, including the United States of America (which is drowning in debt). Google has a near-monopoly over all search results, a position of power it exploits to silence dissenting views and disconnect humanity from important knowledge. And Facebook suppresses all truthful information that challenges the false narratives of the globalists. Corporations like these abuse their power to enslave humanity rather than setting us free.’

‘London’s King’s College Hospital has said it will lodge a formal complaint with the press watchdog after a journalist from The Sun allegedly impersonated a relative of a victim of the Grenfell Tower fire in an attempt to get an interview. 

A spokesperson told The Independent they had “formally written to The Sun and will be informing the Independent Press Standards Organisation [Ipso].”

They added: “We are unable to comment on the specifics until our complaint has been investigated.”’

‘Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos and her department have pushed for an expansion of privatized school choice programs in the proposed budget for fiscal year 2018, particularly in the form of private school vouchers. Now a propagandistic three-part documentary series called School Inc. will help DeVos in her efforts to gain public support for expanded private school choice options. The series has already aired on PBS stations in some markets and will be shown on more this month.

A majority of people across the partisan spectrum oppose private school vouchers, programs that redirect public education money to pay for private school tuition. Vouchers are problematic for many reasons, including their history of allowing for discrimination against LGBTQ, disabled, and special education students, their impact on reducing public education funding, and their ineffectiveness in boosting academic achievement.’

‘On June 7, the New York Times vomited up a hit piece on little ol’ me – a guy who has been doing stand-up comedy for nearly 20 years and thought maybe that comedy could be used to inform and inspire audiences, rather than just make fun of the differences between men and women.

At first when you’re the center of a smear job, you’re annoyed and frustrated. But as I read further through the piece, I realized it was a master class in how to write propaganda for one of the most “respected” news outlets in our country. I’m actually grateful it was written about me because now I can see with my own eyes exactly how the glorious chicanery is done. I count no less than 15 lies, manipulations, and false implications in this short article, a score that even our fearless prevaricator-in-chief Donald Trump would envy.

So here now is a “How To” for writing propaganda for the New York Times – using the smear piece against me as an example.’
