As drugmaker Pfizer seeks regulatory approval for its covid-19 vaccine, shipments have already begun making their way to distribution centers via United Airlines charters, according to a Wall Street Journal report.

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) approved the shipments, which require the vaccine candidate to be packed in dry ice, according to CNN.

"As a result of the historic pace of vaccine development through Operation Warp Speed and careful logistics planning, the FAA today is supporting the first mass air shipment of a vaccine," the agency said in a statement Friday.

The chartered flights, which began Friday, were reportedly between Brussels and Chicago, the WSJ said. They represent one leg of a chain, which will extend from Chicago to distribution hubs around the US.

Joe Biden gains votes in Wisconsin county after Trump-ordered recount
A recount in Wisconsin’s largest county demanded by President Donald Trump’s election campaign ended on Friday with the president-elect, Joe Biden, gaining votes, according to a report by The Guardian Saturday.

After the recount in Milwaukee county, Biden made a net gain of 132 votes, out of nearly 460,000 cast. Overall, the Democrat gained 257 votes to Trump’s 125.

Trump’s campaign had demanded recounts in two of Wisconsin’s most populous and Democratic-leaning counties, after he lost Wisconsin to Biden by more than 20,000 votes. The two recounts will cost the Trump campaign $3m. Dane county is expected to finish its recount on Sunday.

Overall, Biden won November’s US presidential election with 306 electoral college votes to Trump’s 232. Biden also leads by more than 6m in the popular vote tally.

After the recount ended, the Milwaukee county clerk, George Christenson, said: “The recount demonstrates what we already know: that elections in Milwaukee county are fair, transparent, accurate and secure.”

Joe Biden asked to bring back fast food menu items
You'd think that there would be more pressing issues given the multiple urgent crises the US and the world are facing currently; climate change, coronavirus pandemic and economic crises...but the internet has spoken. The next leader of the free world should use his newfound power to reinstate beloved items on fast food menus. It all started with Taco Bell...

Top of the list were potatoes, quesarito and shredded chicken at Taco Bell, McDonalds' all day breakfast and Burger King's cheesy tots.

Despite warnings of health officials to stay home due to the increases of covid-19 cases through out the states, some people are still traveling for the Thanksgiving holiday.

US coronavirus case wake up call
As you can see from this breakdown, the US is now adding a million new official covid-19 infections every week. Back in the spring it took around a month to amass as many new cases.


Free, fair elections are the lifeblood of our democracy. Charges of unfairness are serious. But calling an election unfair does not make it so. Charges require specific allegations and then proof. We have neither here.

- Pennsylvania appeals court opinion in Donald Trump election case

Stephanos Bibas, Judge for the United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit
Next coronavirus surge will be "destabilising" for the US - health expert
CNN - The next coronavirus surge will be “destabilising” for the United States, according to a health expert.

Health experts are predicting a surge in covid-19 cases following Thanksgiving, beyond the record-breaking numbers the US is currently experiencing.

“We're going to be regularly hitting 2,000 deaths per day, but then going up to 3,000 deaths and 4,000 deaths per day,” Dr. Peter Hotez, dean of the National School of Tropical Medicine at Baylor College of Medicine, told CNN on Friday.

“We're talking about numbers that are approaching what we experienced in the 1918 flu pandemic, except it's happening over a much shorter period of time,” he added.

US reports decline in covid-19 hospitalisations for first time in two weeks
CNN - For the first time in more than two weeks, the US reported a slight decline in the number of people being treated in hospitals for coronavirus on Friday, according to the Coronavirus Tracking Project.

It is still not yet clear if the data being reported was disrupted because of the Thanksgiving holiday, the CTP said. Some states and territories did not update their reports on Friday, including Florida and Delaware.

Organisations collecting data on the coronavirus expected to see a dip for Thanksgiving and the three to four days after the holiday, however an increase in reported cases of diagnoses, hospitalisations, and deaths are expected for next week and beyond.

The US surpassed 80,000 daily hospitalisations on November 19 and set new records for 17 days straight until Friday, according to CTP.

Pennsylvania court attacks Trump campaign lawsuit
Another lawsuit from President Trump's legal team fell flat in Pennsylvania after an attempt to dismiss the state's already-confirmed election results was rejected. President-elect Joe Biden was victorious in his hometown state by a margin of over 80,000 votes. The court found that the Trump campaigns accusations of fraud have no merit.

“Free, fair elections are the lifeblood of our democracy,” wrote Judge Stephanos Bibas, a Trump appointee, after returning the verdict. “Charges of unfairness are serious. But calling an election unfair does not make it so. Charges require specific allegations and then proof. We have neither here.”


Trump makes bold coronavirus vaccine claim
After Pfizer and BioNTech recorded positive results for their covid-19 vaccinations, President Donald Trump is eager to get them distributed to Americans. In his Thanksgiving Day address he remained bullish about the prospect of millions of vaccines being administered before Christmas.

The President said: “The vaccines are being delivered, literally it’ll start next week and the week after”.

Stay-at-home order imposed in LA
Los Angeles County has announced tonight that a new stay-home order will be introduced from Monday, as coronavirus cases surge out of control in the nation’s most populous county. On Friday, the county reported 24 new deaths and 4,544 new covid-19 cases. Across the whole US there were over 200,000 new cases, despite many areas not reporting.

A statement from the county health department read: “Residents are advised to stay home as much as possible and always wear a face covering over their nose and mouth when they are outside their household and around others."


Another recount concluded in Wisconsin
A recount in Wisconsin, requested by President Trump's legal team, has made no material difference to the outcome. President-elect Joe Biden's winning margin actually grew slightly.

The Trump campaign had attempted to use the recount to disqualify 238,420 ballots which were cast as absentee ballots in person or by those who count themselves as 'indefinitely confined', allowing them to vote absentee without meeting the state photo ID requirements.

The ballots in question were in Dane and Milwaukee counties, but Trump's legal efforts have so far been unsuccessful. They could still sue and have the case heard in court.


Joe Biden's lead over Trump continues to grow
The all-important matter of the Electoral College votes was settled weeks ago but as the count continues in some states President-elect Joe Biden's winning margin continues to grow in the popular vote. His lead in the popular vote lead climbs to 6.28 million, representing a margin of four percentage points.

This makes no difference to who will be in the White House come 20 January, but does help to show the futility of the President's ongoing legal challenges. After dismissing a lawsuit in Pennsylvania on Friday, the Judge noted: "The number of ballots that it specifically challenges is far smaller than the roughly 81,000-vote margin of victory [in the state]"

2020.11.26 15:51 Yosh1220 Slavemaster: Porn: Part 2

I am not a Christian but this verse describes what i am about to show you perfectly.
Thimoty 6: 9 Those who want to get rich fall into temptation and a trap and into many foolish and harmful desires that plunge people into ruin and destruction.
In my last post I have talked about the scientific harms of porn in relation to addiction and depression, but porn is so much more and does so much more. I like to call it the gates of hell, once you get hooked into it and dont get out you will end up in a very bad place. In my last post i talked about how it numbs your brain and you have to watch more and harder stuff to feel any pleasure. This is a path that i want to explore further with you in this post.
Now to everyone whos watched porn on here, think about how your taste in porn was at the beggining and how it changed over time, did it get extremer? weirder? more hardcore? Maybe not for you but checking out other subs you can see numerous people saying that the more they watched the more twisted their taste got. Someone commented on the last post Slavemaster porn 1 that i am mistaking cause and action, that the people struggling with it are sick to begin with and thats why they started watching it in the first place. Now that doesnt make any sense because as i told you backed up with scientific evidence that Porn fits into the addiction framework and by watching it all you will sooner or later need to progress in the intensity of the material to get any rush out of it. So the argument that porn is good because it prevents those people from actually living out those fantasies, no its the opposite, most people only start to get twisted by their excessive consumption of porn. Now here is an example of something somewhat extreme, this of course doesnt apply to it but its a case of what can happen, this link shows the search results of user 927 Aol, leaked search historys, Here you can see how it starts out already a bit unnormal but in line and how with time his taste gets weirded and more twisted and finally illegal and deviant.
https://www.businessinsider.com/aol-user-927s-entire-sordid-search-log?r=DE&IR=T
Now some of you would say you cant make such claims only by checking out nofap subs or one extreme example, show us proof. Of course you have every right to say that and i will happily show you proof. Teens who watch porn are reported to commit more sexual violent acts also knowns as TDV, Teen dating violence.
Violent pornography exposure was associated with all types of TDV, though patterns differed by gender. Boys exposed to violent pornography were 2-3 times more likely to report sexual TDV perpetration and victimization and physical TDV victimization, while girls exposed to violent pornography were over 1.5 times more likely to be perpetrate threatening TDV compared to their non-exposed counterparts.
https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/31309432/
It also makes you more accepting towards rape myths and sexual deviancy in general, less sensitive and twists your brain into accepting sick things, like rape fantasies and violent sexual accts, as shown in the following studies.
A positive d indicates exposure to pornography had negative outcomes, while a negative d indicates positive consequences in relation to sexual deviancy, sexual perpetration, intimate relationships, and rape myth outcomes. As can be noted, no negative d's emerged in the current meta-analysis, thereby indicating the consistent negative effect of exposure to pornography in each of these four areas.
https://citeseerx.ist.psu.edu/viewdoc/download?doi=10.1.1.525.9208&rep=rep1&type=pdf
Here it shows how even rape gets subcouncisly accepted.
The present study was conducted to learn more about the association between fraternity membership and attitudes and behaviors associated with sexual aggression against women. A male experimenter took digital pictures of all of the images of women displayed in the rooms of 30 fraternity men and 30 non-fraternity men on a residential, small, liberal arts college campus. The men also filled out a rape myth acceptance scale. A total of 91 images were found in the form of posters, “pin-ups,” advertisements, or computer screen savers. It was found that fraternity men had significantly more images of women displayed in their rooms and that the images were rated significantly more degrading than those in the rooms of non-fraternity men. Fraternity men were found to have significantly higher scores on a rape supportive attitude scale (RSA). RSA scores were positively related to the amount of degradation in the images found in men's rooms. The possible purposes and consequences of the display of degrading sexual images are discussed.
https://link.springer.com/article/10.1007/s11199-005-7136-6
Now we can go a step further and see that the most common thing amongst serial killers is porn. Now almost every one of those murderes says that porn had a massive effect into lowering their guilt and hesitation in commiting the horrible acts they did. They dont have a reason to lie about this and even if, these people dont really knew each other but everyone of them said the same thing about pornography.
There is also a video of Ted Bundy talking about how porn affected him. https://youtu.be/tfwJeHtrWNI
Okay so then there is one big counter argument: Sexual crimes actually decreased. But here is the catch, the less it got the thighter security and tracking technology got. Saying that porn prevents crimes from happening is ignorant considering the evidence i provided, the only reason why these crimes decreased is because its harder to commit them without getting catched.
The term teen has been on top lists in pornography searchings and if you think about the actual meaning of this its sickeing. People get aroused by the thought of a barely legal person being sexually displayed and who knows where it goes from on there.
But this begs the question again: Why all of this? Why would anyone want this to happen? If i had the answers I would tell you but i am trying to figure out the truth aswell.

What will you be doing with this PC? Be as specific as possible, and include specific games or programs you will be using.
What is your maximum budget before rebates/shipping/taxes?
When do you plan on building/buying the PC? Note: beyond a week or two from today means any build you receive will be out of date when you want to buy.
What, exactly, do you need included in the budget? (ToweOS/monitokeyboard/mouse/etc)
Which country (and state/province) will you be purchasing the parts in? If you're in US, do you have access to a Microcenter location?
If reusing any parts (including monitor(s)/keyboard/mouse/etc), what parts will you be reusing? Brands and models are appreciated.
Will you be overclocking? If yes, are you interested in overclocking right away, or down the line? CPU and/or GPU?
Are there any specific features or items you want/need in the build? (ex: SSD, large amount of storage or a RAID setup, CUDA or OpenCL support, etc)

2020.11.25 22:08 Makanly Thoughts on a plan to have a visitor?

I have been trying to find a way to have my mother(60) visit us for Christmas. We have been pretty hard quarantined since March. With the only indoor item being my Wife going to the grocery store every few weeks. I have the benefit of being able to work from home. We have been missing my mother a lot, especially the kids. It would be fantastic to have her visit, but obviously only if reasonably safe. She lives ~4 hours away. *edit* While the visit would be driven by Christmas, the intent would be to have her here for a month or more. *edit*

Backstory: My mother hasn't really been treating the pandemic with what we consider to be reasonable seriousness. She made a cross country road trip to Wisconsin to visit my brother and many other family members and friends. Going out and generally having a good time as if nothing is different. She lives with my Sister and B-I-L who both work outside of the house and have in person interactions with people. My sister and BIL have been to Disney World numerous times during the pandemic as well.

Suggestion: She would drive to our house. Staying outside and at a distance while here. Drop off gifts and stuff from her and family members she lives with. Those would go through our normal 3 day minimum staging process before they're touched, if at all, before Christmas. We would provide her with food and beverage to last her the two weeks. We would put her up in an extended stay hotel for two weeks. After that period she would come to our house and stay whatever duration.

My wife is skeptical about this configuration as there would be no way to validate she actually stays isolated to her room. My mother has previously said she did one thing while at a later date it was discovered, through her own admission, that she did not do that or even something completely contradictory. I'll admit, my wife is more serious and logical with the handling of the pandemic and activities that we should or should not engage in.

I am trying my best here to make this happen while keeping us, as well as my mother, reasonably safe.

Any input would be greatly appreciated.

2020.11.25 19:42 AncientHistory Her Letters To Lovecraft: Jonquil Leiber

Little bit of explanation on this one: "Her Letters To Lovecraft" is a new series on Deep Cuts in a Lovecraftian Vein which takes a look at Lovecraft's correspondence with women. This month's entry is Jonquil Leiber, wife of fantasy author Fritz Leiber, Jr., so I thought might be of interest to Fantasy. I know the subreddit doesn't like just posting links to blogs, so I'm copying the whole post (minus a couple links) below. If you want more, go check out the blog. Otherwise, read on and enjoy.
But first I must explain that my husband, Fritz Leiber, Jr, son of the Shakespearian actor, (who often played in Providence in time past) met Lovecraft through myself and formed a delightful friendship. We were the recipients of many letters now in the hands of the Wisconsin people, Eerleth [sic] et al. Many of the things you touched on in your article, we knew a little more in detail due to this correspondence – about his brief marriage for instance. And since I wa [sic] more interested in Lovecraft as a man or human than I was as a writer, (I lean to the Montague Rhode James, plus the weird man known as Summers type of mystery having been brought up in a draft old English castle – I’m an Englishwoman) so that I learned a number of things about him that his more well bred correspondents did. The man literally starved to death.
—Jonquil Leiber to William Townley Scott, 18 May 1944, MSS. John Hay Library
Jonquil Ellen Stephens married Fritz Reuter Leiber, Jr. on 18 January 1936. Fritz was working as an actor and pursuing a career as a writer; he had met and dated Jonquil at the University of Chicago in 1933-1934. They shared a love of supernatural fiction and poetry, and she encouraged her husband’s interests. On the 14th of October 1936, Jonquil wrote to Lovecraft.
Then in the late summer my wife, with a bold directness I had been unable to conceive for myself, wrote a letter to Lovecraft care of Weird Tales. A few days later the great man replied with what we thought was a long letter, until we had received some of his average-sized communications. That was the beginning of an orgy of letter-writing which lasted the few short months until his death. My wife wrote more letters herself and shortly we were joined by my friend and fellow enthusiast for the fantastic, Harry O. Fischer, then of Lousiville, Kentucky. Our letters were returned to us by Mrs. Gamwell afterwards. The entire correspondence was excerpted by Derleth for the volume of letters and later borrowed and retained, permanently as yet, by another individual who shall remain nameless here.
—Fritz Leiber, Jr. “My Correspondence with Lovecraft,” Letters to C. L. Moore and Others 375
Of the nine published letters from H. P. Lovecraft to Fritz & Jonquil Leiber, based off the Arkham House Transcripts created by August Derleth & co., four are addressed to “My dear Mrs. Leiber.” The originals letters, as far as I am aware, have not surfaced in the interim.
It is difficult to feel out who Jonquil was through these letters. As she told Scott, they show an interest in Lovecraft as a human being more than in his fiction; where Fritz and Lovecraft soon got deep into literary criticism and history, which would cause Fritz Leiber to revise his first Fafhrd & the Grey Mouser novella Adept’s Gambit, to her he answered questions on his life, who Lovecraft was and how he lived. Yet this was a real correspondence, a two-way channel of communication, and Lovecraft found out about her even as she was finding out about him.
It is interesting to know that you have a touch of piracy in your ancestry! I have a counterfeiter as a great-great-grand-uncle about whom I’ll tell you some time.
—H. P. Lovecraft to Jonquil Leiber, Letters to C. L. Moore and Others 317
The best picture of her probably came from her husband, writing decades later after thirty-three years of marriage which only ended with her death due to a combination of alcohol and barbiturates. He remembered her as she was when they married:
She was small (four foot ten; best weight, ninety pounds), had bright blue eyes that were at times violet; she was fast (at Cyfartha Castle school in Wales she’d been a great scorer in field hockey; her method: get the ball and dodge your way to the enemy goal, no teamwork needed—you can always dodge big girls) and a good apache dancer; she had natural grace and artistry (early on she’d done illuminated manuscripts just as had the hero of Machen’s The Hill of Dreams); in America she posed for silk stocking advertisements; she was a great party planner and giver, a gifted fortuneteller, enthusiastic, and friendly, but capable of sudden vast dignified reserves, again just like a kitten.
—Fritz Leiber, Jr., “Not Much Disorder and Not So Early Sex: An Autobiographic Essay” in The Ghost Light 334
Fritz talks about how cold winter was that January and February in Chicago, and how he read to Jonquil “At the Mountains of Madness” by H. P. Lovecraft from the pages of Astounding Stories (the first part appeared in the February 1936 issue, which might have been on the stands the month before). Their correspondence itself is almost lost in his account of their life together. It was, after all, only about four months—though it would influence Fritz for the rest of his life, help inform his work and make connections with the circle of Lovecraft’s correspondents, and he would return the favor with literary analyses and appreciations such as “The Works of H. P. Lovecraft: Suggestions for a Critical Appraisal” (1944), “A Literary Copernicus” (1949), “Through Hyperspace with Brown Jenkin” (1963), and “To Arkham and the Stars” (1966).
Throughout his life, Fritz Leiber, Jr. never forgot his debt to Lovecraft—or to Jonquil.
Because without Jonquil, none of it would have happened. Perhaps Fritz would have found his voice eventually; sold his stories and made his name. Fafhrd & the Grey Mouser may yet have helped inspire Dungeons & Dragons and played their part in the sword & sorcery boom of the 1960s and 70s; Fritz may even have written his homages to Lovecraft without that personal connection and communication. Yet because she had the courage to write to Lovecraft, a torch was passed from one generation of weird writers to another—and the effects of her letters to Lovecraft are still being felt today. They can still be read today, thanks to her: his final hopes to get a job, his painful economic necessities to scrimp on food. Not always pleasant reading, but the kind of insight which Lovecraft did not always share with every correspondent.
Lovecraft’s letters to Jonquil & Fritz Leiber were published in part in volume five of the Selected Letters (Arkham House, 1976), published more fully in Fritz Leiber and H.P. Lovecraft: Writers of the Dark (2005, Wildside Press), and reprinted in Letters to C. L. Moore and Others (2017, Hippocampus Press).
To A Dead Lover
Your limbs lie quietly beneath the grey dust and mould
And I am done with you and all you were of old
The blind worms creep about that once lovely head
I held against my heart…once, when your blood ran red.
Long years ago I loved you, but now I smile
Having other men a long, long while
I have forgotten you, I say, and all you were….
….But why do I hear your slow step on the stair…
And wait, eyes closed, to feel your arms about me?

2020.11.25 07:50 TELAHlies Satanists?

A woman I used to date told me about a girl she met at band camp when they were teens who started talking to her about these "demons" that she had. Not in the figurative sense but that they were her friends and would do things for her. She said that there was a group, some of it centered around the Wisconsin Rapids area in north-central Wisconsin who were into this. My lady, K, let's say, said that she became kind of friendly with the girl at the camp and the girl was kind of pushing the whole demon thing on her. K said that one day in the shower she got this really weird feeling like she was being watched and looked out but saw nothing. Then she swears that when she got out of the shower she saw wet prints that kind of looked like foot prints heading into and out of the room and right up to her shower and they hadn't been there before. She saw demon girl later and demon girl starts talking about one of her demons who "saw" her and K was like, "saw me where" and demon girl says the shower. Now, demon girl could have been aware that K had been in the shower earlier and was fucking with her but K swears that the wet prints hadn't been there and no one had been in the shower room when she was there but she really felt like she was being watched.
Demon girl starts to realize that K isn't into the whole demon thing so she then proceeds to tell a story about someone in Rapids who supposedly knew about this group and was talking about getting the authorities after them so the group put a curse on them and not long after that the person was hit and killed by a semi. I can't remember if K followed up on that part of demon's girls story and verified if someone had been killed by a semi as demon girl claimed/threatened. What I do remember was that K was super freaked out telling me the story, said she hadn't told hardly anyone about it and didn't really want me to tell anyone about it but over fourteen years have past so I'm telling it now. I think there may even be more to it that I'm not remembering but I can't shake how scared she was talking about it, said she hadn't spoken about it in years and after she told me she said we weren't going to talk about it again.

2020.11.24 22:31 Kal-El-SUPERMAN Top 10 GIANT Discoveries in North America

by Hugh Newman and Jim Vieira
January 18, 2016 from AncientOrigins Website


Jim Vieira and Hugh Newman have been working together investigating Native American stone and earthen constructions, Native oral history and the giant skeletons of North America for nearly ten years. They starred together on the History Channel TV show Search for the Lost Giants (2014) and have recently co-authored Giants On Record: America's Hidden History, Secrets in the Mounds and the Smithsonian Files (2015). Jim and his brother Bill also starred on the recently aired History Channel special Roanoke: Search for the Lost Colony (2015). Jim is a stonemason and lives in Ashfield, Massachusetts. Hugh is an explorer, antiquarian and author of Earth Grids: The Secret Patterns of Gaia's Sacred Sites (Wooden Books 2008). He has several articles published on Ancient Origins website and has been a regular guest on History Channel's Ancient Aliens. He lives in Glastonbury, England. His websites are www.megalithomania.co.uk and www.hughnewman.co.uk

The Iroquois, the Osage, the Tuscaroras, the Hurons, the Omahas, and many other North American Indians all speak of giant men who once lived and roamed in the territories of their forefathers. All over what is now the U.S. are traditions of these ancient giants. 1

Over 1000 accounts of seven-foot and taller skeletons have reportedly been unearthed from ancient burial sites over a two-hundred-year period in North America.
Newspaper accounts, town and county histories, letters, scientific journals, diaries, photos and Smithsonian ethnology reports have carefully documented this.
These skeletons have been reported from coast to coast with strange anatomic anomalies such as double rows of teeth, jawbones so large as to be fit over the face of the finder, and elongated skulls, documented in virtually every state.

Figure 1: Map of giant reports in North America. Created by Cee Hall.
Smithsonian scientists identified at least 17 skeletons that stood at over seven feet in their annual reports, including one example that was 8 feet tall, and a skull with a 36-inch circumference reported from Anna, Illinois in the Smithsonian Annual Report of 1873, (an average human skull is about 20 inches in circumference).
The Smithsonian Institution is mentioned dozens more times as the recipient of enormous skeletons from across the entire United States.
The skeletons mentioned no longer seem to exist regardless of their actual size, and the remaining ones that were on display were removed and repatriated by NAGPRA (Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act).
While the authors certainly support this law, it does present a moral and ethical conundrum in terms of trying to ascertain the proof everyone wants to see - physical evidence of giants.


Figure 2: Selection of news accounts featured in the book

In this unique Top Ten, we look at some examples of giant skeletons that were reported from across ancient North America (although we warn you now that Number 1 is so large, we admit it may not be authentic). Our countdown begins at one of the most important mound sites in America, and quite possibly the world.


Figure 3: Various sized skulls found at Potomac Creek, Stafford County, Virginia, 1937.

TOP TEN GIANTS
  1. Serpent Mound, Ohio, 1890s - 7 ft tall skeleton


Serpent Mound survey by Squire and Davis.

The Great Serpent Mound is a 1,370ft long prehistoric effigy mound located near Peebles that has been thoroughly researched by Ross Hamilton, who has written extensively about its mysteries and the giants discovered in the area.
Recent radiocarbon analysis dates it to around 321 BC. This puts it in the realm of the Adena civilization who were present in the area at this time.
In the 1890s, Professor Frederic Ward Putnam excavated some of the mounds next to Serpent Mound and found only 6ft tall skeletons, but a postcard showing one 7 feet in height was recently rediscovered by researcher Jeffrey Wilson.
It may have been one of those excavated by Putnam, as he was the only person to dig at the site.
Ross first published this in his book A Tradition of Giants, and it clearly states it was from Serpent Mound on the postcard, but there is still debate as to where this photo of a 7ft skeleton was actually taken.
Notice that the legs are cut off at the knees, so is "7ft" what we actually see, or is it an estimation if he had his lower legs and feet attached? Could it have been more like 8 feet tall if the shins and feet were intact?

  1. Cresap Mound, West Virginia, 1959 - 7ft 2in skeleton In 1959, Dr. Donald Dragoo, the curator for the Section of Man at the Carnegie Museum unearthed a 7 feet 2 inch skeleton during the complete excavation of the Cresap Mound in Northern West Virginia:
"This individual was of large proportions. When measured in the tomb his length was approximately 7.04 feet. All of the long bones were heavy."

Dragoo published a photo of the actual skeleton in his book so there is no doubt it was authentic.
Dragoo joins many other university-trained anthropologists and archaeologists who reported discovering skeletons over seven feet in length in burial mounds, often with anatomical anomalies.
A few of the professionals reporting these skeletal finds were,


8. Mounds in Iowa, 1897 - 7ft 6in skeleton This account from The Worthington Advance (November 18, 1897) describes the ethnological work of the Smithsonian Institution's Division of Eastern Mounds, and quoted the Director of the Bureau of Ethnology at the time, John Wesley Powell.
The image below accompanied the news report.
"It is a matter of official record that in digging through a mound in Iowa the scientists found the skeleton of a giant, who, judging from actual measurement, must have stood seven feet six inches tall when alive.
The bones crumbled to dust when exposed to the air."

  1. Steelville, Missouri, 1933 - 8ft skeleton As part of the Search for the Lost Giants show, Jim and fellow researcher James Clary investigated the following account that had this heading:
"An Ancient Ozark Giant Dug Up Near Steelville: Strange discovery made by a boy looking for arrowheads, gives this Missouri Town an absorbing mystery to ponder."
From The Steelville Ledger (June 11, 1933):
"…he turned up the complete skeleton of an 8 foot giant.
The grisly find was brought to Dr. R. C. Parker here and stretched out to its enormous length in a hallway of his office where it has since remained the most startling exhibit Steelville has ever had on public view."
While reading through the microfilm at the Steelville library three reports of the find where uncovered including the photo that shows Les Eaton, a 6-foot man, laid out next to the 8-foot skeleton in Dr. Parkers office.

The Steelville Ledger reported that the skeleton was packed up and shipped to the Smithsonian, never to be heard of again.

6. Miamisburg, Montgomery County, Ohio - 8ft 1.5 inch skeleton Miamisburg Mound is believed to have been built by the Adena Culture, anywhere between 1000 to 200 BC.
It is the largest conical burial mound in Ohio, once nearly 70 feet tall (the height of a seven-story building) and 877 feet in circumference. Hugh investigated this site in September 2012 and after talking to some researchers at the local historical society, he found there were other skeletal remains reported in the nearby area.

Old illustration of Miamisburg Mound.
Numerous skeletal remains were uncovered from the mound, including a giant jawbone and " bones of unusual size," but it was the discovery half-a-mile away that became a national sensation and was reported in The Middletown Signal, January 17, 1899 with the headline: "Bones of Prehistoric Giant Found Near Miamisburg":
"The skeleton of a giant found near Miamisburg is the cause of much discussion not only among the curious and illiterate but among the learned scientists of the world.
The body of a man more gigantic than any ever recorded in human history, has been found in the Miami Valley, in Ohio. The skeleton it is calculated must have belonged to a man 8 feet 1.5 inches in height."
Professor Thomas Wilson curator of prehistoric anthropology at the Smithsonian Institution, said the following after examining the find:
"The authenticity of the skull is beyond any doubt.
Its antiquity unquestionably great, to my own personal knowledge several such crania were discovered in the Hopewell group of mounds in Ohio. The jaws were prognathus (projecting beyond the face) and the facial index remarkably low."

Illustration of over 8-foot skeleton discovered near Miamisburg.


5. The San Diego Giant, 1895 - 8ft 4 inch mummy This fascinating discovery reports on a giant mummy found in San Diego (that is currently believed to be a hoax).
However, let's take a closer look, as there is some intrigue and inconsistency with this popular story. This first report appeared in 1895 with the sub-headings "Nine Feet High and Probably a California Indian - Measurement Well Authenticated - Other Big Men and Women of Fact and Fable Who Are Famous Types if Gigantism."
When accurately measured it turned out to be 8ft 4 inches and was,
"carefully inspected and measured by Prof. Thomas Wilson, Curator of the Department of Prehistoric Anthropology in the Smithsonian Institution, and by other scientists."


The San Diego giant was purchased by the Smithsonian for $500 (over $14,000 in today's money) in 1895, although they later claimed it was a hoax.

Thirteen years later - in 1908 - when the mummy was being exhibited, the Smithsonian ran some tests and suddenly dismissed it as a hoax, saying it was made from "gelatin."
The fact that it took that long, and after spending $500 to acquire it, plus the fact that it was "carefully inspected" by experts thirteen years earlier does suggest there may be more to this story than meets the eye.
Interestingly, Aleš Hrdlička, joined the Smithsonian in 1903, right in between the discovery and the final debunking. He was not interested in giants and made a concerted effort to eradicate them from the historical record.
It is also interesting to note that the Director of Prehistoric Anthropology, Thomas Wilson, and the ethnologist in charge W.J. McGee, were both involved in this story, and were obviously keen to make sure the Smithsonian got it back to their headquarters at an immense cost ($500 in 1895 equates to $14,285 today).
But why would they bother doing that if it was simply a sideshow hoax?
The strange twists, and Smithsonian involvement, and the immense amount of money spent on this makes this worthy of inclusion in this Top Ten.
A similar mummified giant also turned up at Spiro Mounds, Oklahoma. It measured 8ft 5 in and was on display for a few months, where it was seen by several people before it disappeared. 4

4. Catalina Island, California - 9 ft 2 inch skeleton (and other 7ft - 8ft examples) The Channel Islands off the coast of California have turned up numerous oversized skeletons.
The story is intriguing and controversial, and it stars amateur archaeologist Ralph Glidden and his bizarre museum, but before the main act, a German naturalist got the story going in 1913.
Dr. A.W. Furstenan reported unearthing an 8 ft tall skeleton with artifacts such as mortar, pestles and arrowheads on Catalina. He was told of a legend while in Mexico of a giant and noble race that lived on the Island, who existed long before the white man and had since vanished. 5
Amateur archaeologist Ralph Glidden unearthed and collected a total of 3,781 skeletons on the Channel Islands between 1919 and 1930.
Working for the Heye Foundation of New York he unearthed a 9ft 2 in skeleton and several measuring over 7 feet:
"A skeleton of a young girl, evidently of high rank, within a large funeral urn, was surrounded by those of sixty-four children, and in various parts of the island more than three thousand other skeletons were found, practically all the males averaging around seven feet in height, one being seven feet eight inches from the top of his head to the ankle, and another being 9 feet 2 inches tall."


The skeleton in the picture is 7ft 8 in example.

As part of Search for the Lost Giants, Jim and Bill Vieira visited Catalina to investigate the contents of the box, and indeed there were photos of hundreds of skeletons and skulls, excavations, artifacts, and burials.
They also uncovered an account of a 28-inch femur unearthed by Glidden on San Nicolas Island reported by the judge of Avalon, Earnest Windle.
This would make the skeleton over 8 feet tall.


An over 7-foot skeleton found on Catalina Island.

3. Beaver Lake, Ozark Caves, Arkansas, 1913 - Nearly 10 ft skeleton and huge skulls This account from an Ozark cave in Arkansas is found in The New Age Magazine (Volume 18, 1913) given by the highly regarded reporter Victor Schoffelmeyer.


Skulls of giants with cranial deformation.

During the filming of Search for the Lost Giants, the site of the cave was investigated.
It had been flooded with the damming and creation of Beaver Lake between 1960-1966.
Bill Vieira and professional scuba diver Mike Young dived into the lake and found a huge shelter cave believed to be the site of the skeletal finds.
While a 70ft stone wall was found at the entrance of the cave, showing likely human habitation, no more clues were forthcoming.
Text from the original article reads as follows:
"While the historical features of the Ozarks held our attention, by far the most fascinating discovery was one made by an aged recluse and naturalist who for ten years had lived in a shelter cave near where we camped.
'Dad' Riggins spent much of his time digging in the ashes which form the floor of many of these caves.
At a depth of more than three feet he found the remains of several giant human skeletons, including an almost perfect skull which differed in many particulars from a modern specimen. When partly joined the largest skeleton was almost ten feet tall.
'Dad' Riggins showed us hieroglyphics covering the Palisades thought to be thousands of years old."


2. Lompock Rancho, California, 1819 - 12 ft skeleton Hugh investigated this famous report back in November 2008, by visiting the area of the ranch it was discovered on.
"In 1819 an old lady saw a gigantic skeleton dug up by soldiers at Purisima on the Lompock Rancho. The natives deemed it a god, and it was reburied by direction of the padre." 8
This short report re-emerged with a broader range of details in 1833 and now various authors and websites repeat the same story.
It goes something like this:
Soldiers digging a pit for a powder magazine at Lompock Rancho, California, hacked their way through a layer of cemented gravel and found a 12ft sarcophagus.
The skeleton of a giant man about twelve feet tall was found inside. The grave was surrounded by carved shells, huge stone axes, two spears and thin sheets of porphyry (purple mineral with quartz) covering the skeleton.
These were covered with unintelligible symbols. He had a double row of teeth, both upper and lower.
The soldiers consulted a local tribe of Indians, who after going into trance, exclaimed they were geographically displaced Allegewi Indians from the Ohio Valley area.
When the natives began to attach some religious significance to the find, authorities ordered the skeleton and all the artifacts secretly reburied.
No further information is available so it is impossible to verify this information, but numerous other skeletons of this height have been reported in such newspapers at The New York Times.
Two further 12ft examples were reported in Jeffersonville, Kentucky ( The New York Times, May 22, 1871) and Barnard, Missouri ( The Providence Evening Press, September 13, 1883).
Furthermore, a 13ft example was said to have been unearthed in Janesville, Wisconsin (The Public Ledger, August 25, 1870) and even bones that were estimated to be from a skeleton 14ft tall at Etowah Mounds (The New York Times, April 5, 1886).
These are all well out of the normal range for humans but are worth noting here as these immense sizes pop up again and again in well-respected newspapers.


1. West Hickory, Pennsylvania, 1870 - 18ft skeleton The headline of this chart-topper reads: "The Cardiff Giant Outdone: Alleged Discovery of a Giant in The Oil Regions."
This report originally came from the Oil City Times in 1870 and underneath the immense armor, it revealed some startling anatomic oddities, and a skeleton that reached a staggering height (the tallest example we have come across):
"They exhumed an enormous helmet of iron, which was corroded with rust. Further digging brought to light a sword which measured nine feet in length."
The report continued that they had discovered:
"…a well-preserved skeleton of an enormous giant… The bones of the skeleton are remarkably white. The teeth are all in their places, and all of them are double, and of extraordinary size."
It was estimated to be 18 feet tall, and the bones were being prepared to be sent to New York. Clearly, however, this could be an exaggeration, as 18ft is unheard of in the historical record, but the matter-of-fact description is intriguing.
Interestingly the discovery was reported to be buried 12 feet below a mound, so it could suggest a deep antiquity, however tall he was.


The report from 1870 describing an 18-feet-tall giant skeleton.

We hope this tiny selection of accounts leaves one realizing there may be some truth to these reports (although numbers 9 and 10 cannot be verified, and they are well beyond the established scope of human height).
We do not believe they are all authentic, but what you have read here constitutes only 1% of what we have in our archive. We include 250 of these accounts in our book 'Giants On Record: America's Hidden History, Secrets in the Mounds and the Smithsonian Files.'
The genesis of the North American giants is shrouded in mystery, but we believe that they were involved in the sophisticated Mound Building cultures of the Mid-West, as royal tombs with reported enormous skeletons were often found within them.
There are many Native legends that place them in the era of the Megafauna (mammoths, mastodons, sabre-tooth tigers etc.) at around 13,000 years ago. There are dozens of oral histories that revere them as gods, and sometimes as fearsome cannibalistic warriors.
Great wars were said to have taken place between these titans, and prehistoric battlefields with oversized bones and weapons were frequently reported by early colonial farmers.
Eyewitness accounts of live giant giants were reported by English and Spanish explorers and even some of the early presidents.
Mystics such as,
...as well as the Rosicrucians and Freemasons all regarded giants as a reality.
The origins of the North American giants are hotly debated by independent researchers, academics and skeptics, but there is now enough data to begin serious research into the subject.
We cover all the theories of their origins in our new book, ranging from the Denisovans of Siberia to the Nephilim of the Bible Lands.
There is also compelling evidence that the giants may have originated within the Americas. Hundreds of Native American creation myths and oral histories attest to this, with the giants being mentioned in the stories from remote times.
One example can be found in the writings of Tuscarora Indian David Cusick in his book 'Sketches of Ancient History of the Six Nations' (1825). He states that when the Great Spirit made the people, some of them became giants.
However, most people don't believe in giants, but rather scoff at the idea, saying it's all just folklore that got mixed up and sensationalized by newspaper journalists.
We disagree, as there is ample evidence within,
Native American mythology
...to suggest otherwise.
Now is the time for academia to take a look at this data, and to investigate what really happened at the Smithsonian, as an important chapter in human history is on the verge of being lost forever.

Back to PART 5.2
Back to CONTENTS
In 2003, Dennis David appeared on Black Op Radio, part 121:
James Fetzer: Did you see Pitzer then?
Dennis David: No. I did not see Bill Pitzer that night.
Fetzer: Do you know if Jim or Paul or- or Floyd or Jerrol saw Pitzer?
David: Riebe thought he remembered seeing Bill, and- but the others did not recall seeing for sure- excuse me, Custer said he thought he saw him there. The others didn't recall whether they saw him or not.
Fetzer: Now, for everyone who doesn't know what we're talking about, Bill Pitzer was Lieutenant Commander I believe at the time, who ostensibly took a motion picture of the autopsy as it was taking place. I don't believe it would've been with a handheld camera, though I could be mistaken. Are you aware of any device located in the morgue, David, that would've allowed a motion picture to be taken?
David: I- only in the last few years, there's been- both Dr. Humes and Captain Stover have indicated that there was a closed-circuit TV set up with the morgue.
Fetzer: Aha.
David: And- the- what Dr. Humes- I'm citing what one of the researchers quoted him as saying, and a friend of mine in California who has met and talked with John Stover, who now lives out in California, told me that he- that Captain Stover recalled there being a closed-circuit TV. I do know Bill Pitzer was head of the audio visual department, was my mentor or one of my mentors, and had a lot to do with my becoming a commissioned officer in the Navy.
Fetzer: You never personally viewed any- any video or a motion picture of the autopsy, however?
David: I saw the sixteen millimeter film in Bill Pitzer's office on the Monday following the autopsy.
Fetzer: You saw the physical film? Did you watch it? Did you see-
David: We looked- Bill and I- I stopped by on that following Monday to talk to Bill about the professional exams and everything coming up for MSC selection in January of '64, and I just, you know, rapped on the door and walked in, as he had told me I could do, and when I walked in, he said 'Dave, come here, I want to show you something'. And I walked over, he had a sixteen millimeter film and a desktop, one of those small desktop editor-types. Also laying on his desk were some black and white and color photos of the body of the late President. And together, we hand-wound- the little crank- hand-wound the projector. We looked at probably three-four feet of the film, and it- it appeared that from the pictures, that there was no- the autopsy proceedings hadn't yet begun because there was no evidence of any, you know, incisions being made, no y-incision in the torso.
Fetzer: Right.
David: And mostly what I saw was if you were looking down at the body, not- mostly as if I were on the right side looking down. And then during the proceeding, the head was turned and the back of the head was visible for a while, and we remarked on the- what appeared to be a bullet entry wound in the right temple just above the right eye near the hairline. We kind of wondered about the rather large gash in the throat. And it was both Bill and I’s assumption at the time that the killing shot was a frontal entry wound.
Fetzer: Yes, very good. And so the throat already had this kind of melon-slice aspect to it, I mean kind of a grossly large? I mean, certainly didn’t look like any ordinary endotracheal incision?
David: No it didn’t look like a tracheal incision because it was- Number one, it was too wide, and if, you know, and if it was- if that’s what it was intended for, it was a damn sloppy job.
Fetzer: Yes.
David: I’ve done tracheotomies, Jim, in my time.
Fetzer: Yes.
David: And all- all you need is about three-quarters- up to a maximum of an inch of an incision at most, and it goes transverse, it doesn’t go- it doesn’t go across the body, it goes up and down.
Fetzer: Aha. Very interesting, because Malcolm Perry who performed the tracheostomy incision at Parkland was a very skilled surgeon, and in fact Charles Crenshaw provided me with diagrams of what it looked like, and his incision was a straight-across incision, but it went through the- a small round entry wound to the throat, which of course he described subsequently as having been present before he made the incision. But it was- it looked grossly different, you can find the diagrams that Crenshaw, for the audience, that Crenshaw drew for me in Assassination Science, I published them as appendices.
David: Yeah, I’ve seen those.
(Audio, part 121b, 11:52)
[…]
Len Osanic: Now, have a couple of questions then. One of them is to with with, now you called him your mentor?
David: Yes.
Osanic: And-
David: Pitzer.
Osanic: Yeah, do you want to go into the relevance of Pitzer’s film here?
Fetzer: Yeah, that’s good, that’s very good, Len, I wanted to back to that too.
Osanic: Right, and the question actually, a question just came to my email is that ‘are you sure that that was JFK on the film?’
David: Absolutely positive.
Osanic: Yeah.
Fetzer: Yeah, yeah, Dennis, describe the- the appearance of the face, for example. Was the face generally intact? I mean, you know-
David: Yes.
Fetzer: You know, it looked normal except that there was this- this hole in the right temple, is that correct?
David: Exactly.
Fetzer: And you said you saw it from the side, did you see any evidence of the massive blowout to the back of the head?
David: The only that- that we saw was in the parietal area. There was what appeared to be an exit wound, oh, maybe two and a half by three and a half inches. Not- not rectangular by any means, but not circular either. It was a shattered mass.
Feter: In the back of the head?
David: In the back of the head, yes.
Fetzer: Occipital-parietal region?
David: Yes.
Fetzer: Slightly to the right, say, of the back of the head?
David: Oh yeah. Slightly to the right. Yeah.
Fetzer: Yeah. And- And pretty big, about the size of your fist when you double it up?
David: Yeah. Just about- the size of my fist would be about right.
Fetzer: That was exactly how Crenshaw described it.
David: Um-hum. And, you know, that’s why, you know- Now, I’ve seen and treated bullet wounds before, and did so many times afterwards. When I was, you know, in- both in Vietnam and other areas, and Bill Pitzer had been through World War 2, he was familiar with gunshot wounds. Nether Bill or I were forensic pathologists by any means, but I can assure you it’s easy to recognize entry wounds from exit wounds.
Fetzer: Yes.
David: From high-powered rifles or pistols.
Fetzer: Yes. Yes.
Osanic: And I guess the relevance here is that, of course, the thought is that Bill Pitzer had made copies of this film and was going to release it somehow. And he- he-
Fetzer: You mean when he was killed?
Osanic: Yeah, just for the sake of our audience, right, let me mention that shortly before he was to retire from the Navy, that Pitzer was found dead. Dennis can comment on this, but his left hand was mangled, he allegedly had committed suicide, which is very peculiar because in fact Pitzer was left-handed. My suspicion is that his left hand was mangled in order to extract information from him as a form of torture to ascertain whether there were any other copies of the film that he had taken of the autopsy, and here I invite Dennis to add to this.
David: The last time I talked with Bill Pitzer was the week of December 1965. I didn’t make- I didn’t get commission in ‘64, but thanks to Bill Pitzer and Larry Webb and John Connally, all three MSC officers who mentored me, I was selected in 1965 and received my commission in December, the first week of December of ‘65, and Bill was there when I was sworn in, you know, proud as a peacock with that gold band around my arm, and Bill talked to me and he said ‘Well’, he said, ‘This is probably our last time we’ll pull duty together’, he said ‘I’m gonna be retiring next year and I’ve had some fairly lucrative offers from some major media sources’. And the next thing that I heard about Bill was that he had committed suicide in October of ‘66. And- now, by the way, Jim, I’ve always thought that Bill was left-handed because he and I used to play Bridge almost every day at noon, not- not every day but almost. And he always dealt cards left-handed.
Fetzer: Yeah.
David: And sometimes he would reverse it, so I was always under the impression he was left-handed.
Fetzer: Yes.
David: But Joyce, his wife, says that no, that he was right-handed, and other people that knew him seem to think that he was right-handed too, so I don’t know, I may have been mistaken that, you know, in my assumption that he was left-handed, but you know, based on my experience on him.
Fetzer: Of course, his left hand being mangled is all by itself inconsistent with the idea of suicide, why would anyone who’s going to commit suicide put themselves through the torment of mangling their left hand?
David: Well I remember- Yeah, I know, and Joyce told me the last time that I talked to her that- that they told her that they couldn’t get his wedding ring off his finger-
Fetzer: That’s right.
David: -because it was mangled so badly.
Fetzer: It was- it was- yeah, crunched into the-
David: -Or something to that effect.
Feter: Yeah. Yeah.
David: And she- she told me also, she said ‘Well I knew Bill had had some- something dealing with the assassination, but he never told me what it was’.
[...]
Fetzer: Listen, let me mention, I have this- I have a description from the- from based upon an interview with the- one of the embalmers of JFK. And this is a- I’d like to read this to you, Dennis, just to see if it strikes any bells, you know, I’m just gonna read parts of this.
David: Okay.
Fetzer: The description of the wounds that were given to Joe West, who was an investigator who had this interview with the fellow Thomas Evan Robinson on May 26, 1992. Here’s the description that West wrote based on upon his interview by telephone with Robinson: ‘Wounds – large gaping hole in back of head, patched by placing piece of rubber over it. Thinks skull was full of plaster of paris. Smaller wound in right temple. Crescent shaped, flapped down, 3 inches’. Now, that allusion I believe was to a chunk of skull on the right side of the skull in the vicinity of the ear that is seen in some of the autopsy photographs and drawings, that was kind of like a flap, was kinda loose flap, but you may or may not have noticed anything like that.
David: I never saw that flap on any of the pictures I’ve ever seen until I- I’ve seen it since-
Fetzer: Yeah.
David: But not what Bill Pitzer had in his possession.
Fetzer: Yeah.
David: I did not see anything like that.
Fetzer: Well that’s valuable. That’s valuable too because if they had been an add-on to create the impression of a bullet having been fired from behind when in fact it was fired from in front.
[…]
David: […] I know that some of the x-rays and some of the pictures that we viewed that- at Pittsburgh that- in ‘92, Custer said were retouched, and some of the pictures Riebe said had been retouched.
Fetzer: Oh yeah. Well, yeah. Actually, yeah. You mean the- the autopsy photographs do not appear to be consistent with the observations that you made at the time, that they appear not to be authentic autopsy photographs, they have at the least been retouched, possibly reshot, somehow fabricated or reconstituted.
David: Exactly.
Fetzer: Let me read a couple more items here from this interview. ‘Small shrapnel wounds in face, approximately 2, packed with wax’. You wouldn’t be familiar with anything like that?
David: I never saw those.
Fetzer: Yeah. These are interesting, I’ll come back to them later because the- the bullet that actually hit Jack in the throat passed through the windshield and the small- David Mantik believes that these small shrapnel wounds were caused by splinters of glass from that bullet going through the windshield. ‘Wound in back, 5 to 6 inches below shoulder to the right of the backbone’.
David: Right.
Fetzer: ‘Adrenal gland and brain removed. Other organs removed and then put back. No swelling or discoloration to face meaning he died instantly’. You can probably confirm the later that from the photographs you saw in Pitzer’s office that there was no discoloration, he looked pretty much like himself in those images?
David: Oh yes. I mean, it was- it was recognizable. Some researcher in- when I was at the JFK Lancer meeting in nineteen- 1998, said he thought that the body we treated- the body in the pictures I saw were those of Officer Tippit, and I said ‘No way’.
Feter: Yeah.
David: Absolutely no question in my mind that what I saw was the body of the President.
Fetzer: Have you seen this one photograph sort of taken from the right side, it’s a funny view, his eyes are open and he’s looking upward.
David: Death stare?
Fetzer: Yeah, so-called stare-of-death photograph as Livingstone called it, have you seen that?
David: Yes.
Fetzer: Did that correspond to the images you saw with Pitzer or did they look somewhat different?
David: The- It looked very similar except for the flap on the side of the head, that- the picture I saw on the film, on the sixteen millimeter film a couple of pictures that Bill had showed that, the stare-of-death if you will-
Fetzer: Yeah.
David: But the- that flap over the right ear in the- in the- almost into the temporal area, I never saw that.
Fetzer: Uh-huh.
David: Never saw that.
Fetzer: I’m looking at it right now. What they have there is it almost looks like pieces of black duck tape, you know, on the body in that stare-of-death, and of course the skull is all gunked up, this is massively gunkey. You know, one of the interesting features of the autopsy photographs, Dennis, is some of them show all this massive gunkey stuff, such as you find in Livingstone’s High Treason, there’s quite a bit of that. And others show a kind of neatly-trimmed and kind of clean head with only a small hole toward the top in the vicinity of the cowlick, have you seen those inconsistent photographs?
David: No, I haven't. I’ve seen pictures of them in some of the publications, yes, Jim, but only from that standpoint.
Fetzer: How would you have described the- the head or skull of the President at the time as you were observing it in the photographs that Pitzer had?
David: It appeared to be, you know, from the pictures I saw, the head appeared to be fairly intact.
Fetzer: Yes.
David: The- there was, as I said, a small hole near the hairline- if you would go from the right corner of the right eye and go straight up right to the hairline, there was a small- what appeared to be a small entry wound there, about- well, about the size of the end of my finger, which-
Fetzer: Right.
David: -would be three-eighths of an inch in diameter, a little more maybe, and then the pictures didn’t show any of the men that were in the autopsy room, just arms that were moving the body around.
Fetzer: Aha.
David: And the head was turned one, and the back of the head, and- you know, it seemed to be a clear through-and-through entry wound with the entrance in the forehead, in the temple area, and the exit wound in the occipital-parietal area to the rear.
Fetzer: You could see the definition of this blow-out to the back of the head fairly clearly, distinctly enough to see that it was not perfectly symmetrical and that it rather resembled a fist doubled up?
David: Yes.
Fetzer: And therefore, it wasn’t concealed or covered by a lot of gunk or matted hair or massey stuff back there that looked weird?
David: No.
Fetzer: Yeah.
David: I know I’ve seen pictures since, you know, hair hanging down and it looks like all kinds of stuff hanging out of it, I never saw that.
Fetzer: Right, so those were inconsistent with your observations?
David: Yes.
Fetzer: So those photographs would be, in your judgment, of someone else or else doctored or fabricated photographs.
David: I- I don’t know where they would’ve come from.
Fetzer: Yeah, but I mean they’re not consistent with your observations?
David: They’re not consistent with what I recall.
Osanic: Right, but you also mentioned that what you saw was before the autopsy?
David: It- from the films, it appeared to be that- Now, again, I did- we didn’t- I did not look at the whole reel of tape with Bill, just about the first three or four feet of it, and it appeared- it was- he was obviously on, well, what would be an autopsy table, and that it was obviously, it appeared to be the examination, if you will, that normally is done before the actual autopsy begins. Because the first step in an autopsy proceeding is to physically eyeball and examine the body from head to toe, write down any identifying marks or abnormalities, scars, etcetera, etcetera, moles, whatever, which are supposed to be put on the autopsy report. I’ve helped do autopsies in my time.
Fetzer: So this was actually the perfect time, Len, for Dennis to be observing. You know, I mean, if he had access through the- through the photographs that Pitzer had taken, I mean it was the ideal time to be observing the body in the- in it’s more-or-less pristine state for the- for the deceased in order to observe, you know, the wounds before in fact the autopsy incisions and other- and other forms of change of the body had taken place. You didn’t observe anything that looked to you remotely like surgery of the head, did you Dennis?
David: No. No I did not. Not at that time, no.
[...]
Fetzer: Do you- do you recall, Dennis, specifically thinking back about the body, whether the eyes were open or closed?
David: Open.
Fetzer: That’s very interesting, 'cause- 'cause Crenshaw remembered having closed his eyes himself, that he closed Jack’s eyes before he was-
David: That’s- that’s why I said that the- one of the pictures I remembered was that- there was the picture of the death stare that is present in these books-
Fetzer: Yeah.
David: Was- was very- was very similar to what I saw-
Fetzer: Yeah.
David: Except for that-
Fetzer: Massive gunkey black-
David: Black- Yeah, the gunkey black flapping mass.
Fetzer: Yeah. Yeah. Yeah.
David: But- but the eyes were open when I saw them.
Fetzer: But the- the surface of the face looked pretty much similar?
David: Yes.
Fetzer: Yeah. Very interesting.
David: Yeah.
Fetzer: Very interesting.
[…]
David: Well I never believed- When the Warren Commission report came out, I was appalled at what their conclusions- because their conclusion that it was done by- was a rear entry wound that was shot from the rear just didn’t jive with what I remembered. I’ve-
Osanic: And it must have been a lot of people that didn’t-
David: Exactly. And, you know, I- as I said, I never- I kept quiet until ‘79 when I agreed- when I agreed to let David use my name. The first time I ever said anything to anybody was to a reporter to Waukegan in ‘74, which is how David happened to get through to me eventually. And, you know, and from- from 1980 to the present day, I give anywhere from 8 to 12, 15 talks a year to schools, fraternal social groups, women’s clubs, men’s clubs, etcetera. And, you know, there’s certain questions that always come up, they want to know who I thought did it, or they want to know why didn’t I go public in 1963, ‘64, my standard response to that was I was 26 years old, had 2 kids and wanted to grow up- I wanted to be around to see my kids grow up.
Fetzer: Yes. Yeah.
Osanic: So if- and if I can read into that, then you did- you were worried at some point- for one man to go against the official word?
David: Len, there were too many people associated with the assassination who departed this life under unusual or strange circumstances, and I had no desire to be one of them.
Osanic: So, from the minute you heard that- that William Pitzer had committed suicide, you were leery of that?
David: Yes. Very much so. I didn’t believe he committed suicide from day one. In fact, Len, in 1980- in 1979, when David called me, my wife was sitting here in tears shaking her head, she did not want me to go public even in 1979. You know.
Fetzer: Out of fear.
David: Yeah, exactly. She’s resolved to it now, but she- even then she didn’t want me to, even then she wanted me to keep my mouth shut. [...]

On 6/30/2006, Dennis David was interviewed by researcher James Douglass. As summarized in Douglass’s 2008 book JFK and the Unspeakable: “As Pitzer hand-cranked a sixteen-millimeter, black-and-white film through the machine, David watched the short movie on a small screen. What he saw was the body of President Kennedy viewed from the waist up, being touched by the hands of unseen individuals. He saw the hands roll the body onto its side and back” (Link [link 2]).
Dennis David made an account on educationforum.ipbhost.com. On 7/24/2006, he posted in the JFK Assassination Debate section:
(3) It was on the Monday, after the post-mortem. I had stopped in to see Bill, about another matter, when I walked into his office, he had a hand-operated film editor on his desk. He also had some B&W and Color photos of the autopsy on his desk. There was a 16mm film in the editor. We looked at perhaps the first three feet of the film. I don't remember our exact conversation, but I do remember we both felt that there was a frontal entry wound in the right forehead near the hairline.
(Educationforum.ipbhost.com, comment 70044)
In the film and the pictures I saw only the body was shown. It did show hands that moved the body but no picture showed faces, etc. Some of the surroundings were visible but quite honestly we paid little attention to that. The body and the wounds it had sustained were our focus. Bill only commented as to the location/magnitude of the wounds, that the temple wound appeared to be an entrance wound. I did wonder at the tracheotomy incision, considering the size and location of the exit wound in the parietal/occipital area. It seemed to me that the tracheotomy was an exercise in futility. Bill's demeanor, hard to say, I know we both got teary eyed. Magnitude of what we saw???? We saw what we felt was a frontal entry wound in the right forehead with a large exit wound in the rear of the skull of a President we both admired and liked. How Bill felt when the Warren Report came out, I do not know. I felt disgusted and very, very angry but I was also afraid to say anything, and didn't until my talk with the Waukegan Sun reporter. Even then I would not allow my name to be made public.

From Allan Eaglesham's 2007 essay The Putative Pitzer Movie: A Discussion:
In the same way that no eyewitness (other than Mr. Custer) saw a movie camera, neither was a television camera reported; was a non-obvious CCTV system permanently installed in the autopsy room with lens-access in the ceiling and/or wall(s)? It is noteworthy that one of William Pitzer's areas of professional specialization was the use of CCTV for instructional purposes. In an October 1998 telephone conversation, CDR Humes told me that he had worked closely with Bill Pitzer on films on tropical medicine for use in Vietnam. These films were made on video and transferred to film; Pitzer was in charge of the television part. Therefore, it seemed possible -- if not plausible -- that Pitzer recorded the Kennedy autopsy on videotape via a CCTV system, unbeknownst to those present in the autopsy room, from which he generated the movie film seen by Dennis David. However, if a CCTV system was permanently installed in the autopsy room, few knew of it. Harold Rydberg -- director of the Medical Illustration School and of the Department of Medical Illustration at the Naval Medical School -- who had been in the autopsy room on many occasions, assured me in the strongest possible terms that it was not permanently equipped with CCTV.
New Witnesses
A memorandum, dated 5 November 1963, recently discovered among William Pitzer's papers (provided by a family member) expresses appreciation for "television coverage" provided by "Lieutenant W.B. Pitzer" and four gentlemen "who performed under his direction" (Figure 1). (Two of these gentlemen are deceased and the others do not wish their names to be quoted in this article.)
Figure 1. A November 1963 memorandum detailing the CCTV personnel under William Pitzer’s direction (names deleted from item 2): http://www.manuscriptservice.com/WBPmovie/memo.jpg
Neither Mr. "A" nor Mr. "B" has any knowledge of a role played by William Pitzer in the autopsy on President Kennedy's body. And neither has any knowledge of a CCTV system permanently installed in the autopsy room at the BNH in 1963.
Most of the CCTV feeds at the National Naval Medical Center went out from the television studio in Building 144 (where LCDR Pitzer's body was found, October 29, 1966); but feeds were generated at other locations within the hospital. Mr. A has no recollection of feeds from the autopsy room. Mr. B recalls CCTV generation from the autopsy room on a regular basis, not of autopsies however; the autopsy room was used for routine teaching purposes. This is consistent with CDR Humes' statement to the ARRB [10]:
[The autopsy room] would accommodate maybe 20 or 30 people, because we used to have conferences in there. Routinely, at the end of each week, we would retain the organs from the autopsies of that week. In fact, not only did we review them there, there was a closed-circuit television. They went to Andrews Air Force Base, NIH, and it was a closed-circuit instruction program.
Mr. B told me that for the CCTV feeds from the autopsy room to elsewhere in the hospital and beyond, "we wheeled in a television camera."
We Wheeled in a Television Camera
Often, it is impossible to prove a negative. But, this may be as close as one can come to proving that the BNH autopsy room was not permanently equipped with a CCTV system. If it had been permanently equipped, then it is unlikely that the CCTV team would have gone to the considerable trouble involved in transporting a bulky camera from Building 144 to that location.
It is a tautology that if no television or movie camera was present, then the movie film of President Kennedy's body -- reported by Dennis David -- was not generated in the BNH morgue during the Humes/Boswell/Finck autopsy.
Walter Reed?
Messrs. A and B confirmed CDR Humes' statement (see above) that there was a CCTV link with the National Institutes of Health (NIH) directly across Wisconsin Avenue from BNH. They are unaware of a similar link with Andrews Air Force Base, but both stated that there was a microwave link with Walter Reed Army Hospital and that CCTV feeds passed between the two military medical institutions in both directions.
[...]
A few years ago, I asked Dennis David to show on a blank face sketch what he recalled of President Kennedy’s wounds as seen in the 16-mm movie film in William Pitzer’s possession (Figure 2). His depiction of the wound at the rear of the head is similar to the descriptions of the Parkland doctors in Dallas and dissimilar from what is seen in the extant autopsy photographs.
Figure 2. Dennis David’s depiction of President Kennedy’s head wounds: http://www.manuscriptservice.com/WBPmovie/ddd.jpg
In a recent telephone conversation with Mr. David, I asked: "Is there any doubt at all in your mind that the body in that movie was John Kennedy's?" He responded: “Absolutely none.”

A Question of Color
Shortly after this article was published here, I received a message by email:
Interesting article. Did any of those who supposedly saw the "movie" or who worked with those cameras ever say whether the images were in color or b&w?
I responded:
Only Dennis David has said that he saw the movie in Pitzer's possession, and if my memory is good, he said he saw color slides too. Come to think of it, the assumption at that time was that those slides were produced from the movie. If the movie was generated from TV, it would have been in B/W. Am I following your thinking?
He responded:
Yes, you certainly are...I worked for [a TV station] that went color in 1954. They could only do color in the studio and the cameras were huge and weighed hundreds of pounds. In 1963, color cameras were extremely expensive, trouble-prone, and difficult to use unless there was a huge amount of light on the subject. All of that argues emphatically against the possibility of color at [Bethesda Naval Hospital]. For one thing, they could not be hidden from view -- everyone in the room would have seen it. And the camera had to be fairly close to the subject, otherwise there wouldn't be enough available light to get a viewable image. And since close-ups would have been mandatory for autopsies (otherwise why record them?), long lenses would not have been practical. So, if anyone claims that the Pitzer images were color, they cannot be telling the truth.
I responded:
The crux of the article is that no TV camera was present at the Humes/Boswell/Finck autopsy. If a TV camera had been there, everyone would have known it. Furthermore, the fact that the CCTV crew wheeled a camera into the autopsy room for broadcast from there is as good a demo as any that no TV camera was fixed to the wall or invisibly installed in the ceiling, which -- until now -- has been my theory (despite remonstrations to the contrary from Harold Rydberg). William Pitzer could have been in possession of 35 mm color slides as well as a B/W movie. However, if my two contacts say that the TV camera(s) they worked with generated B/W images and Dennis David maintains that the movie film he saw was in color, then a significant disconnect exists. Either way, it's an aspect that needs to be covered.
I emailed Dennis David, and he responded:
I recall that the film was in color.
And I emailed Messrs. "A" and "B":
Did the CCTV system that you worked with generate black and white or color images?
Mr. "A" responded:
The CCTV system was equipped with both monochrome and color cameras. Color was limited to a surgical camera, mounted on a pedestal that permitted the camera to overhang the operating table, and a color film camera for slides and films. The bulk of the work was monochrome using Dumont cameras.
Before Mr. "B" responded, I emailed the next logical question:
Were CCTV feeds from Walter Reed in color (as well as monochrome)?
To which he replied:
We did have both color and monochrome television equipment, either of which could have been transmitted to Walter Reed. I don't remember if we received color television feeds, or just monochrome, from Walter Reed.
I asked:
Is it at least theoretically possible that Bill Pitzer had a color movie in his possession -- within a few days of the assassination -- that was generated as a result of a CCTV feed from Walter Reed? Mr. "B" responded:
I would agree that it would be highly likely that both color and monochrome signals could be transmitted between NNMC and Walter Reed.

Mr. "B" also told me that he worked for DAGE Television as a field engineer stationed at a major hospital in Chicago, prior to moving to the NNMC in 1958. In Chicago they had a color television camera installed over one of the operating tables. Information on DAGE hardware available in the 1950s is available here, showing the brand/type of equipment they had at the NNMC. The Chicago and NNMC cameras were similar in operation to the film chain shown in the brochure. The major difference was that the NNMC "surgical" camera was movable.
In 2014, Dennis David spoke to Rob Clark on The Lone Gunman podcast, episode 30:
Dennis David: [...] I also learned, in my opinion and satisfaction, that the period between 7:35 and a few minutes before 8 o'clock, or until that body was put back in the bronze casket some time after- after 7 o' clock, that that period of time I believe was utilized to alter the wounds of the President in order to make it appear as though all- all the killing shots came from the rear.
Rob Clark: I agree. Most definitely.
David: Yeah.
Clark: Yeah.
David: Because on Monday, after the autopsy, I saw a sixteen millimeter film which the federal government denies ever existed. I also saw about six black-and-whites, I saw six photo- color photos of the body of the President, and I know that those photos did not match the photos later that were supposedly taken at the autopsy proceedings, after the official autopsy began at oh-eight-hundred- or at twenty-two-hundred. 8 o’ clock. So, that alteration had to be done some time between roughly 7 o’clock and, say 7:30.
Clark: Right.
David: Which’d been ample time to have done that. Because the photos that were officially released after the- of the official autopsy began at 8 o’clock- showed massive injuries to the head. I only saw- the photos I saw showed a bullet wound at the hairline directly above the corner, right corner of the right eye, and about a three- about four-inch circular kind of wound, which was obviously to me an exit wound, roughly about the size of a small orange or a very large peach. And that’s all. That’s the photos I saw on Monday that had been- that I believe were taken some time between 7 o’clock and say 7:30 or whatever. After- after- afterwards, when the Warren Commission report came out, other publications came, and I saw the photos where they had this huge massive injury that involved the temporal bone, as well as the parietal and the occipital bones. That was- I think that’s where the alteration occurred.
Clark: So what you saw basically matched what the Parkland doctors reported seeing?
David: What I saw the first time.
Clark: The pre-autopsy photos?
David: The pre- yeah.
Clark: The pre-pre-autopsy photos.
David: The pre-pre-aut- yeah. What I saw then was that, as I said, about- exit wound about the size of an orange that involved only the occipital- the occipital and a portion of the cranial floor.
Clark: Behind- behind the ear then?
David: Back here, yeah. But the temporal bone, which was on the side of the head, was not involved. This was located about- the exit wound I saw was low enough to have exposed the cerebrum- cerebellum- cerebral part of the brain. Not- not large- top of the head, sorry. The cerebral is what they called it. So you know, I didn’t really put all this together until after ‘65 when the Warren Commission report came out. When I looked at that, and-
Clark: You knew something was-
David: I knew something was not right.
Clark: Yeah.
(Audio, 18:05 [link 2] [link 3])
In November of 2016, Dennis David spoke at the JFK Assassination Conference held in Dallas:
On the following Monday, I went to- I was a First Class enlisted man. I was taking- I had enrolled in a program to gain commission. There was a man named William Pitzer who was the Lieutenant Medical Service Corps, who kindly sent it to be one of my mentors to help me out. So I had gone over on Monday after the autopsy to talk to Bill about the tests coming up in January, seeking his advice. And when I walked in the door, he said 'Denny, come here, you gotta see this'. On his desk he had a film editor, and on the editor was a sixteen millimeter film, and he had been looking at it. He also had black and white pho- color photos on his desk, all of them were of the autopsy. None of you have ever seen those pictures to this date, or even about the film, because the government said they don’t exist. The hell they don’t, I saw the damn things!
Of those films that were quite clear, Bill and I observed an entry wound approximately here [points to right forehead], an entry wound here [points to front of neck], and during that film, Pitz showed, the body was rolled up on it’s side and we observed an entry wound about six inches down from the neck and about an inch and a half to the right of the spinal column. We also observed an exit wound which involved- it was approximately this size [makes circle shape with hands], involving the parietal and occipital bones back here and did not involve the bones in this area [gestures to right front of the head] which the pictures you’ve seen show a piece flapped from the temporal. Years later, at the request of a researcher, I drew on a skeletal diagram of the wounds that I saw. I had never seen what Parkland doctors had said, but this investigator took my drawings, compared them to what was seen at Parkland, and they matched almost exactly. They were not the films and the pictures that David Lifton had in his book, because he- the ones he got had come from what they released- what the Warren Commission eventually would release. […]
(Video, 7:39)
[…]
The next Monday, I walked in with- when I saw Bill Pitzer and he was looking at this film and everything- things begin to gel, begin to question everything I’ve seen happen that time. So I went on, and finally in ‘65, I did get commission and was issued a medical service card. I was sworn in first week of December, 1965. Bill was there, ‘come over, give me a big hug’, and said ‘well, shipmate, probably won’t see you- serve with you anymore, ‘cause I’m gonna retire next year’, and he said ‘I’ve had some lucrative offers from major media’. So I went on my way, I went to Portland, West Virginia, went to knife-and-fork school, or what they call ‘knife-and-fork school’, and Naval justice school, and from there went to Great Lakes naval hospital for duty, and in April of ‘66, Barb Munroe, who had been both Bill’s friend and my friend at Bethesda came in for duty. She’d been transferred and she says ‘hey, did you hear about Bill?’, I said ‘no, I hadn’t heard anything’, and she said that he’d been killed. And I said ‘what?’, she said ‘yeah, they’re saying he committed suicide’, and I said ‘that doesn’t sound right’, and she said ‘well, there was some question about it because his hand had been mutilated and it looked as he’d been- as if he’s been tortured. And I said ‘I wonder if that’s because of the materials he had’, and she said ‘did you know about those?’, and I said ‘Yes, I saw ‘em’. And so, we talked about it for a while. […]

2020.11.21 23:01 Realityhazpunz Becoming Human.

Za'ag finished cataloging the document, then turned her attention to the next. The words jumped out at her first. Then she zeroed in on the date. But that was impossible! The date was just last week. With a huff, and a grumble, both of which were human expressions. Za'ag, transferred the relevant documents to the share file, and went to her supervisors office.
Being a Archivist, is the highest honor, a knowledge loving Trrill could aspire to. To be a off planet Archivist made one, in human terms, a Rockstar. Being one of twenty Archivist on the human death world? That made one, again in human terms, a BAMF! As Za'ag walked down the hall, she thought about her three human years at this posting.
Three years ago
Za'ag, was terrified and excited, or was it excited and terrified. The human operating the transport was speaking, pointing out places of interest, and gesturing with its hands. What it wasn't doing was paying attention to operating the transport that was zipping around other transports. Up until this point, Za'ag, had been using Trrill transportation. Now she was at the mercy of this suicidal human. Who was now taking a turn down some sort of ramp at high speed. While still speaking non-stop. Za'ag, closed her eyes and breathed deep, she was close to screaming in terror. Thankfully the transport soon slowed to a stop. Only when she heard the door open did she risk a peek. Standing outside, holding the door, is a male Trrill. His fur is a pleasant blue with the sliver streaks of age wearing through it.
Present day
Senior Archivist, Oh'tl, his fur more silver than blue now. Was busily working on his lastest pet project. The human sport known as American football. Given that his Giants were in the playoffs last year. Oh'tl, was focused on how well they were doing this season, not good, and whether or not any of the second string players would make a difference. So he welcomed the distraction when his protege tapped on his office door.
"Good morning Za'ag!" He said with a smile. "How can an old Trrill, help his beautiful replacement, help him retire faster?" Za'ag rolled her rich emerald green eyes as her lavender fur fluffed up then flattened. Both actions ment the same thing. One was purely Trrill, the other purely human. "Dreaming of spending your days fishing again?" She said as she slipped into a chair. Oh'tl, laughed out loud as his fur swirled in amusement. "Ah, perhaps, David and I have entered the ice fishing tournament in Wisconsin again. That cheese is ours this year!" Za'ag nodded in agreement as the fur on just the outside edges of her arms and legs formed a ridge. Cheese is amazing, especially Wisconsin cheddar, there were plenty of billionaire cheese makers in Wisconsin. "So what do you have for me this morning?" As Za'ag handled the current news desk, she always brought him something fascinating. "It's a report from last week. I placed it in your share file already." As Oh'tl turned his attention to his screen. His face in profile brought up another old memory.
Two years sixth months ago.
With the exception of her few guided tours of the city. Za'ag rarely left the compound. Her duties as assistant to Oh'tl, who handle the current news desk, didn't require leaving the compound. That is until this story had crossed the desk. It was hot, dusty, and a uniform beige color. It was unlike anything she had ever seen. Yet this morning, just before the primary star crested the horizon, the colors had been so beautiful. Now though it was just hot, dusty, and beige. The three giant pyramids had been impressive just the same. Especially when she learned that they had been built using only basic tools and human muscle. As impressive as they were. The pyramids were not why they were in Egypt. They were there because Oh'tl was fascinated by a report on archeology. It wasn't so much what was discovered, but rather the fact that humans have been digging in the dirt for a thousand years longer than the ancient Egyptian civilization had existed, and were still making new discoveries. The dust coated her fur, thankfully the goggles and mask kept her eyes and nose clear, she was however constantly fluffing her fur in an attempt to keep cool. Especially while in this valley. This, valley of King's, was apparently where the later rulers of Egypt were buried. They saw many things on that trip. From mummified humans, crocodiles, to human women dressed in beautiful colors dancing under the clear star filled night sky. It was on that trip that, Za'ag, started to thirst for the chance to explore more of this death world.
Present day
Oh'tl finished reading the story. It wasn't a very long article. Just a few brief paragraphs. It was enough information for Oh'tl to agree that it warranted further investigation. "I am actually a bit jealous that I can't go with you on this one." He said turning back to her. "It's not a truly exotic location. The story though should make up for that." Za'ag said as her fur twitched in excitement. Oh'tl shook a finger at her as his fur indicated amusement. "Ut'ka, has finished his mandatory adjustment period and will be accompanying you on this trip. This should prove to be a perfect opportunity to ease him into his wildlife position." Za'ag nodded in agreement as she stood up. "In that case I will go see Hl'na and get our flight booked."
One year six months ago
Tl'ag, waited for his sister at the space port. He was attempting to control his excitement, but his fur refused to stay still. When he saw her, his excitement turned into worry. Something was wrong. It wasn't that she looked different, or that there were signs that she was unwell. It was the way she walked. Every other Trrill in sight walked with arms close, back straight, and small measured steps. They walk correctly. His sister however walked like something else. Her shoulders were back, arms held in a way that claimed the space around her, her stride was direct and purposeful. Even her greeting was wrong. She touched his face as was proper. Then she delivered a almost crushing hug. It didn't end there. So much movement, not just her fur, it was everything. Head, face, arms, hands, fingers, body, legs, and feet. She was never still! It was exhausting to watch. Everything she said was matched with a movement of some part of her body. Then when some juveniles discovered a spine crab had taken up residence in the pond. She smashed it with a stone! No hesitation, just smashed it, while muttering something about snakes! It wasn't until two quin after Za'ag had left that Tl'ag figured out what was wrong with his sister. He was on his way home, when he caught I strange movement, out of the corner of his eye. When he looked over he realised that there were humans walking across the square. Shoulders back, arms out, purposeful stride. It clicked, his sister, walked like a human!
Present day
Ut'ka, his bright green fur twitching in anxiety waited for Za'ag at the airport. He was trying to watch everything at once. So he immediately noticed Za'ag,s lavender fur as she approached. She was in conversation with a human wearing a suit. They were both making the human barking noises that indicated amusement. He only heard the end of their conversation. "Nice meeting you! Have a pleasant journey!" Za'ag said to the human. "It was a pleasure! I am definitely going to take you up on the offer, to visit the embassy when I get back!" The human replied waving good-bye. Za'ag waved back and turned to Ut'ka. "Was that human a friend of yours?" Ut'ka asked uncertain. Za'ag shook her head as her fur twitched in the negative. "Nope we met in the security line. Let's get checked in. Hl'na booked us first class!" Ut'ka,s fur fluffed up in amazement as Za'ag walked to the counter. "Mommy!" He heard a human juvenile cry. "Look at the fluffy! It's so cute!" Embarrassed he hurried after Za'ag. As the human mother shushed its juvenile.
One year ago
"Are you sure about this!?" Oh'tl shouted. He had to shout because of the noise. "Yes! I've been thinking about it since I got back! The entire time I was home! I couldn't figure out what was out of place!" Za'ag shouted as she checked Oh'tl,s harness. Oh'tl, having had personal experience with with this exact same problem shouted back. "How long did it take you to figure it out!?" Za'ag, her fur covered in a bright red jumpsuit grinned at him as she shouted back. "It was my second day back! I was two pieces into a triple cheese pie from Salintino's and watching a Blast Back rerun! That's when I realized that I didn't feel out of place!" Oh'tl shouted back as he checked Za'ag,s harness. "I'll be happy to help you with the paperwork when we get back! Do you need help with a sponsor!?" They both gave a thumbs up to the human standing nearby. Then Za'ag shouted. "I'm good! Jillian and Karen are fighting over who gets to sponsor me!" Oh'tl had to wait for the buzzer to stop before he could shout back. "My money is on Karen!" Za'ag,s laughter was lost in the noise. Then she shouted. "Catch me if you can!" Before flipping backwards out of the aircraft.
Present day
The flight hadn't been long. Only a human hour. Then the hustle and bustle of baggage claim. Humans always seemed to be in a hurry! What was really disconcerting was that he had to take unnaturally long stride's to keep up with Za'ag. They left baggage claim and entered the arrivals section of what the humans still called an airport. There they were met by a human in a suit. Holding a sign that said "Trrill Embassy Archivist" in his hands. The human explained during the drive to their hotel. That tomorrow morning they would be meeting something called a Park Ranger. The human who filled this role would take them to the incident. Although the hotel room was strange, being designed by humans for humans, it was at least quite. Unfortunately for Ut'ka, Za'ag, was making enough noise to make up for it. She was simultaneously talking with Oh'tl on the communicator, Hl'na on the human Internet, and watching the evening news on the TV. Twitching his fur in resignation, he started researching what they could eat for dinner.
Six months ago
"He is ready for you" the secretary said from the doorway. Za'ag,s fur fluffed up then flattened with excitement. Oh'tl gestured for her to lead the way. Karen squeezed her shoulder. Za'ag walked through the door followed by Karen, Jillian, then Oh'tl and his friend David, and David,s wife Lisa. They found themselves in a richly appointed office. Where they met a older human male wearing black robes. He was sitting behind a desk made of dark wood. "Let's make sure everything is in order before we began. I have before me a Trrill named Za'ag? He asked. "Yes!" Za'ag said still trying to control her fluttering fur. The human gave her a smile before going back to the paperwork. "You have chosen Anders as a surname, correct?" " Yes!" Za'ag gave Jillian a grin as she answered. The human shuffled a few papers. "I have a Karen Thompson listed as sponsor"? He waited for Karen's response before continuing. "As witnesses today we have Jillian Anders, Oh'tl Paulson, David Paulson, and Lisa Paulson." He stood up and walked around the desk. He picked up a book before continuing. "All the paperwork is in order. So if you are ready we shall begin. I will speak the words and you will repeat after me. Please place your right hand on the book." He waited for the moment required for Za'ag to place her right hand on the book. Then he began. "I (state your name) have knowingly made the decision of my own free will." Za'ag took a deep breath and began. "I Za'ag Anders, have knowingly made the decision of my own free will.......
Present day
The transport lurched as it wallowed through another muddy water filled hole. The rain wasn't hard but it was steady. Ut'ka, wrapped in a yellow garment called a rain coat. Looked out the window at the lower slope's of the mountains. He was also looking at the lower parts of the trees. That was because everything above ten human meters was lost in a white fog. Up front, Za'ag and the Park Ranger were having a conversation about the weather conditions of the area. Looking down at his communicater, Ut'ka , went over the list his supervisor had sent him. He was supposed to get the incident report from the Park Ranger. That had been easy. He was supposed to take image's of the site. That shouldn't be a problem either. The part about taking image's, measurements, and tissue samples of the suspect wildlife would be impossible. As the Park Ranger had already said that they hadn't identified it yet. When told this he had expressed concern that it might return. The Park Ranger assured him that it was unlikely, and that if it did, he was equiped to deal with a bear. Bear! When he was first told about this assignment. Ut'ka had researched the species. Bears come in different colors, sizes, and temperaments. However the hybrid, that was believed to be responsible for this incident, was a blend of two of the most fearsome breeds. When Humans were quite young as a species. They were not as careful with their Planet. This led to an environmental disaster that nearly caused them to go extinct. One of the results of the environmental disaster. Was the breeding if the Polar Bear and the North American Grizzly. This produced a huge omnivore that slowly caused the extinction of both of its parent species. Known as the North American Goliath Bear. It can be found as far south as Northern Texas, as far east as Virginia, and is slowly continuing to expand. To add to the fact that it is apparently everywhere, it also occasionally eats people. Which given that the transport was crunching to a stop. Made Ut'ka unhappy about getting out.
Later that evening
Za'ag finished her notes. They would eventually become a rough draft. Then when finalized they would be submitted. Creating a permanent record of the incident. Although it had only been her home, having become a citizen of the Terran Federation only six months ago, for a short time. Za'ag couldn't help but feel that Earth had adopted her that day in the Valley of King's. It is a crazy death world. Where even with all the technology and abilities of a Human. Being complacent about how you store your food while camping. Could very well put you on the menu! Logging out of the database, she noticed that Ut'ka was standing at the window. He had done very well today. Especially when he and the Park Ranger were working together on the campsite. On the drive out they all three had a interesting conversation about camping and hiking. Za'ag came up beside Ut'ka, and looked out the window. The weather had cleared up and a large portion of the horizon was taken up by My Rainer. They stood in silence for a moment then...
"Za'ag?"
"Yes Ut'ka?"
"I don't know why, but I really want to know what it's like to stand on top of that mountain."
There is a moment if silence.
"Let me call Oh'tl, so he knows we are going to be out for a few days."

2020.11.21 20:42 Enough-Oil-2003 An expose into UK media corruption part 1 of 2

Dear WayOfTheBern
I John Smith (not my real name just an alias and not a whistle-blower but instead a private citizen via my redacted email address) has already sent the email in question to Jordan Petersons wife, Evening Standard, Rudy Giuliani, WayOfTheBern (who I originally sent to WayOfTheBern privatelyfor feedback purposes), LBC, Henry Jackson Society, Eric July, Telegraph inquiries, Julia Hartley Brewer, Leader of the house of commons cabinet office, Quilliam foundation (hoping that would reach Majjid Nawza), Treasuray Solicitor, Tulsi Gabbard, Tim Pool, Whistleblower, The MP who is currently The Attorney General for The United Kingdom at the time of this email, Daily express, Daily Mail, Julia Hartley Brewer, Jonathan Pie, Iain Dale, free speech union, Pierce Bainbridge, L lin Wood, Jonathan Guills, Telegraph investigations departement, Lindsay Hole, Kemi Badenoch, Jacob Rees Mogg, defund the BBC (since Calvin Robinson works there hoping that the email in question is referred to Calvin Robinson), Guido Fawkes, Daily express, The Crown Prosecution Service (specifically their inquiries departement), The Attorney General office, The Advertising Standards Authority, Ofcom, The Spectator UK, The Spectator USA and The Spectator Australia, Douglas Murray (who I was hoping that if The Spectator did not see the email in question that since Douglas Murray works for The Spectator, Douglas Murray would notify The Spectator of the email in question), The Private Eye, The equalities office for the United Kingdom, MP Desmond Swayne, I news editorial division, I news reader division, Calvin Robinson, Konstantin Kisin, Count Dankulas Lawyer, Crimebodge, CPS London Magistratex and Solicitor Ian Guld who all of them have not reply me back (or in the case of Gudio Fawkes refuse to read the email in question below due to its length or in the case of CPS London Magistrates life gets in the way and I get nervous due to me not being certain if this was the right address or due to previous experiences if I was going to be taken seriously) but thought you might be interested in as it deals with intustonlized misconduct and corruption.
Keep in mind this I don't not wish to make any personal finical gain out of this and that for this to be referred to cps as soon as possible as these potentially illegal pratices as stated within the email in question has lead to some personal to me defndning abhorrent things (I.e. Jacob blake) and believing in falsehoods.
I was originally going to do this as one big post but dye to reddit 40000 characters on post policy one had to split this into 2 parts.
My hope for this email is to kick-start an investigation which can then not only be published but also be referred to the likes of CPS for further investigation which can result in potential prosecutions as further explained in the email in question not only can these illegal/misleading pratices affect and decive people but also can cause them into defending people who have committed abhorrent things.
For The Private eye, The Spectator and Douglas Murray I sent this a list of commands offering this story but to no avail with these list of 8 demands:
  1. To be a able to send my investigation annoymusly without fear of reprisal.
  2. If it is publishded in one of your issues then for it to be done in both of your magazines and in the case of The Private Eye as a special report similar to that of the expose of the post office back in March/April of 2020.
  3. For this to be kept under wraps and not to be reported in either magizine until all investigations and trials have been completed.
  4. For this to be considered my extremely early entry for the next Paul Foot award.
  5. For this to be sent to both the head of The Crown Prosecution Service and The Attorney General of The United Kingdom (as well as their respective body's).
  6. For both Ian Hislop and Andrew Neil to be kept away from this due to it relating to a former employer which would consistitue a conflict of interest if either of them got involved in this.
  7. If this does lead to legal action being taken then for me to be able to testify anonymously due to me being both underage (17 at the time of writing this email) and autistic.
  8. For Ofcom, The Crown Prosecution Service and for The Attorney Geneal to be questioned on why I wasnt contacted back about this.
Keep in mind this since the original version of the email in question was made and sent I've encountered even more evidence of misconduct by the BBC, Channel 4, Channel 4 news and a new offender in the form of sainsbury's so the email in question is to be treated similar to that of the theratical cut of a film as I'm developing what amounts to the directors cut of the email in question.
If there's things that are outdated in the email in question that's because this was sent originally on the 8th of September 2020 so information should be correct at the time of the email in question.
Email in question:
Dear Ofcom, Advertising Standards Authority and Crown Prosecution Service
I am writing this to present evidence which can easily lead to an investigation into multiple people and organisations with those being: Naga Munchetty, Lewis Goodall, Channel 4 news, Cathy Newman, John Snow, Dorothy Byrne The Guardian, Channel 4 and the BBC.
In regards to Naga Munchetty she has recently be found to not only have been paid to do a speech with Rollys Royce durning a virtual conference but also that she did consult the BBC first and actively tried to hide it so it would be wise to see if she's been involved in any other finical conflicts of interest recently.
Naga Munchetty caught trying to hide a massive conflict of interest in regards to her speaker role with Rolls Royce: https://inews.co.uk/news/naga-munchetty-conflict-interest-warning-bbc-moonlighting-aston-martin-pr-video-574797
In regards to Lewis Goodall (who by the way has worked for progressive think tank Institute for Public Policy Research in the past as well as working inside 10 Downing Street under Theresa May before working back in brodcasting) has recently did a front page cover story for The New Statesman (who by the way on their website says their liberal and progressive) which is not only a conflict of interest in regards to due impartiality but also a finical conflict of interest since Lewis Goodall is being paid as a guest columnist to critize the government even though under 15.3.17 of the BBC's impartality guidelines bans anyone from expressing strong views, advocating against a policy and exhorting change in a policy.
How even the Institute for Public Policy own website describe themselves as a progressive think tank: https://www.ippr.org/

In regards to Channel 4 news I have been noticing that they've have been omitting information from their news reports (as well as not correcting errors from previous news reports which if included said information would change the entire context of their news story. In order to give you an idea of this I shall use 11 examples to prove my point.
Example 1: https://www.channel4.com/news/protests-erupt-in-wisconsin-after-police-shooting-of-black-man
Example 2: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=QoMKHlciP-4#
Example 3 (same as example 2 but only 6 minutes instead of 10 minutes): https://www.channel4.com/news/former-trump-adviser-defends-wisconsin-police-who-shot-jacob-blake-in-the-back
Example 4 (same video as example 11): https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=v4metQOo67I
Not only have Channel 4 news decided not to disclose the fact that in all of the first four examples that the police were there to arrest Jacob Blake for allegedly committing sexual assult (as well as having an arrest warrant for a previous felony sexual assult charge) minutes before the police arrived on scene (which is falsely claimed in example 1 that Jacob was there to break up a domestic dispute between two women which in reality had violated a restraining order as well as the fact that the victims car keys was stolen which she then called the cops and purses Jacob which wasn't disclosed in any of the first four examples) and the fact that the police allegedly told Jacob to "drop the knife" which why they had tasered him in the first place but also that when police told him to stop not not only did Jacob go to the car which had multiple children inside but also that not only was it later revealed that Jacob confessed to having a knife but also said knife was found inside the floorboards of the car (which the alleged sexual assult plus the fact that Jacob was tasered and ignored the cops about to get a knife out of the car was the reason why he was shot which goes directly against example 1 claim of Jacob being unarmed when shot which wasn't corrected in examples 2, 3 and 4) with Channel 4 news also failing to disclose in example 4 that Jacob Blake's father has made several anti-semitic and anti-white comments on Facebook.

Example 5: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=lDLtondx66k
Example 6: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=_kiUMqHM7Pg
Not only have Channel 4 news decided not to disclose the fact that Kyle Rittenhouse lawyer has claimed that Kyle Rittenhouse was working as a community lifeguard on the day in question to help out clean graffiti and damage from a local highschool (with Channel 4 news also claiming he's a white supremacist even though there has been no evidence to condclude that Kyle was part of a white supremacist group as the local vigantile group The Kenosha Guard has said that they're not certain if Kyle Rittenhouse were part of their group so the claim of white supremacist is unproven at best and baseless and false at worst) whilst also withholding the fact that Kyle received information of a call from a local auto dealership who need help protecting his business from further destruction (where once police dispersing a croward came past Kyle where although they were being taunting and threatened towards Kyle no physical altercation took place) but also that in the guns used in the killing were not only provided to Kyle (which is falsely claimed in example 5 and not corrected in example 6 that the guns used in the killing were from outside the state of Wisconsin as well as not disclosing the fact that Kyle may have a claim to self defence due to how wide Wisconsin state law on concealed carrying in regards to an exception for rifles and shotguns, intended to allow people age 16 and 17 to hunt as well as Channel 4 news not disclosing that Wisconsin is an open carry state) and from within the state of Wisconsin but also that not only did the local police change formation and close down a route which Kyle used to go between the auto mechanic shop and gas station after Kyle went back to the gas station the second time after helping out people who were injured by admistrating first aid or directing them to place which dealt with more serious injuries (and confirming there were no more injuries) Kyle after learning that the police had blocked his path back to the auto shop and complying with them was going back to the gas station where Mr. Rittenhouse was latter seen being chased by an unknown group of people into the parking lot of another dealership several blocks away when Kyle's first victim Joseph Rosebum (who Channel 4 news hid the fact that he was a convicted pedophile and had occured 42 disciplinary infractions in Arizona federal prison) not only taunted at Kyle to shoot him in the head (which channel 4 news also hid the fact of) but also that then at the same time an unknown 3rd party trying to shoot at Kyle (which Channel 4 news did not disclose) which then lead to Kyle not only running for his life but also that whilst being chased down not only was Kyle ambushed by Joseph Rosebum who tried and failed to disarm him (with Channel 4 news also failing to disclosing that something was thrown at Kyle Rittenhouse by Joseph Rosebum) who then got shot and later died, Gaige Grosskreutz and Anthony Hubertried tried to ambush Kyle (who Channel 4 news in example 4 and not corrected in example 5 claim that both were not armed even though video evidence is show with Gauge Grosskreutz having a gun) with Kyle then running for his life who unintentionality tripped over and with two people attacking him on the ground (with Anthony Hubertried using a skateboard to smash Kyle over the head and Gauge Grosskreutz having a gun which Channel 4 news did not disclosing the fact that both Anothh Hubertried and Gauge Grosskreutz were armed with Channel 4 news also falsely claiming that they were both unarmed along with not disclosing the fact that they both had criminal records for battery, strangulation and intoxication with Gauge Grosskreutz having a gun) and just as other people where closing in on Kyle, after Kyle shot twice (one to Anothny Hubertried who later died and one to Gauge Grosskreutz) after calling someone saying that he killed then tried to turn himself in but the police ignored him at the time wanting for him to move from the area (which Channel 4 news did not disclose the fact that he handed himself into Antioch, Illinois police).
The fact that even the local malitia group The Kenosha Guard is uncertain if Kyle Rittenhouse was connected to their group as well as confessing to someone on the phone that he killed someone: https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/crime/what-we-know-so-far-about-kyle-rittenhouse-accused-vigilante-in-kenosha-shooting/ar-BB18p9Dw

Not only has Channel 4 news failed to mention that the article they mentioned (written by The Atlantic which alleged trump called WW1 soldiers losers and that he didn't attend the Aisne-Marne American Cemetery near Paris in 2018 because Trump featured his hair would get wet due to the rain) is not only owned by Steve Jobs widow Laurene Powell Jobs (which she owns The Atlantic via The Emerson Collective) who has donated over $600,000 to Joe Biden's campaign (which in of itself should consistitue a massive conflict of interest) but also that Channel 4 news has falsely claimed that not only Trump wouldn't attend the Aisne-Marne American Cemetery near Paris in 2018 because Trump feared that his hair would get wet due to the rain (which in reality was due the president’s helicopter Marine One being grounded due to bad weather which was decided by the Marine Corps and the White House Military Office, which then presents the recommendation to the White House in collaboration with the Secret Service,) with Channel 4 news also not disclosing that John Bolton, Jordan Karem, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, Hogan Gidley and Keith Kellogg all and out publicily saying that Trump didn't say anything of those things on the day in question since they where with Trump when this allegedly happended but also that both Stephen Miler and Dan Scavino have come out publicaly stating (as well as showing in emails between them and secret and classified internal White House contacts) that Trump wasn't able to attend the Aisne-Marne American Cemetery near Paris in 2018 because the president’s helicopter Marine One was grounded due to bad weather which was decided by the Marine Corps and the White House Military Office, which then presents the recommendation to the White House in collaboration with the Secret Service and not because Trump feared that his hair would get wet due to the rain as originally claimed in The Atlantic and Examples 8 and 9 with Example 9 also not showing the CCTV evidence from the earthcam in time Square but also didn't show all the footage in terms of the footage shown of the driver going through the protestors which if shown would illustrate that the protestors were blocking the path of the car with the car driver honking his vehicle for the demonstrators to move out of the way which they refuse to do so.

After Example 10 was made and in Example 11 by Channel 4 news not only have Channel 4 news failed to disclose that the bodycam footage leading up to George Floyd has been released (which shows George Floyd not only disobeying police orders and resiting arrest) but also that not only did George Floyd said "I can't breath" whilst police were trying to get him in the back of the police car before asking to be put on the ground but also that not only Channel 4 news has refused to mention that the Minneapolis Police training manual instructs officers on how to subdue violent or resisting suspects by placing their knee on the neck of said suspect but also that it's been revealed that George Floyd's had a fatal fentanyl level of 11 which under normal circumstances would kill someone 2 to 3 times over which Channel 4 news has not disclosed (with all 3 medical reports admitting that he was on drugs durning his death as well as having Covid-19) and that if George Floyd had died somewhere else and there were no contributing circumstances then George Floyd's death would be ruled as an drug overdose death (though the two other memos filed Tuesday from the Hennepin County Attorney’s Office about conversations with Chief Hennepin County Medical Examiner Dr. Andrew could be incomplete because they were awaiting microscopic slides, pictures and other evidence from the Hennepin County Medical Examiner’s report).

In regards to Cathy Newman in terms of what she did in the video below her actions would fall under both Monroe v Hopkins of 2017 and McAlpine v Bercow of 2013 as not only did Cathy knew what she was saying was wrong but also unlike Monroe V Hopkins of 2017 (where you can at least say that Katie Hopkins intially didn't realise that her comments were addressed to the wrong person) and McAlpine v Bercow of 2013 (where you can say at least that Bercow didn't realise that the information she was intially spreading at the time was false) when push came to shove and CCTV evidence showed that Cathy Newman had lied in her tweets although both Cathy Newman and Dorothy Byrne did later apologise not only did the mosque in question receive death threats but also that Cathy Newman then later did another bad faith interview with Jordan Peterson.

In regards to Jon Snow after the investigation into the pro-brexit rally he was cleared of back in 2019 there may have been a line of inquiry missed in terms of that investigation as back in 2017 allegations came out against Jon Snow where it's alleged that durning Glastonbury (on the day before a mass address was to be made by Jeremy Corbyn) John Snow made disparaging comments about the Tories (which he then said he had no recollection of saying that) which from all the evidence that I can see wasn't investigated by anybody (though Channel 4 did at least remind Jon Snow of of his duties in regards to due impartality) which could constitute evidence of bad character under The Criminal Justice Act of 2003 Chapter 1 evidence of bad character explanatory notes.

In regards to Dorothy Byrne not only was she the person who has overseen seen the potentially misleading news reporting of Channel 4 news and both the Cathy Newman and Jon Snow situations but also back in 2019 durning 2019 durning her MacTaggart lecture Dorothy Byrne had called Boris Johnson both "a coward" (but did also say that Jeremy Corbyn was "a coward") and "a known liar" as well as comparing him to Vladimir Putin (as well as doubling down on her comments after initial comments) which if it was said privately but leaked to the public would be concerning but at the very least you could say that their her own private personal views or if it was a low ranking Channel 4 news you could say she's lacks authority to do newspieces however though this was said in public and was videotaped which not only calls into question due impartality since she's the head of Channel 4 news (which a reasonable person would suspect that Dorothy Buren would order her employees to do more negative stories on Boris Johnson since she has an axe to grind with Boris Johnson) but also that this was said back in August 22-23 2019 about 3-4 months to the 2019 General Election a reasonable person would suspect that Dorothy Buren would order her employees to do more negative stories on Boris Johnson since she has an axe to grind with Boris Johnson along the fact that with the above statement above Boris Johnson it would be in her best interest in protecting people who disavow Boris Johnson which is why there needs to be an independent investigation into Jon Snow's comments at Glastonbury as well as a reinvestigation into his comments at the Pro-brexit rally instead of an internal investigation by Channel 4 news since not only would it be a conflict of interest but also that the investigation would be buried and turned into a complete and utter whitewash.

2020.11.21 20:32 Enough-Oil-2003 An expose into UK media corruption part 1 of 2

Dear JordanPeterson
I John Smith (not my real name just an alias and not a whistle-blower but instead a private citizen via my redacted email address) has already sent the email in question to Jordan Petersons wife, Evening Standard, Rudy Giuliani, WayOfTheBern (who I originally sent to WayOfTheBern privately for feedback purposes), LBC, Henry Jackson Society, Eric July, Telegraph inquiries, Julia Hartley Brewer, Leader of the house of commons cabinet office, Quilliam foundation (hoping that would reach Majjid Nawza), Treasuray Solicitor, Tulsi Gabbard, Tim Pool, Whistleblower, The MP who is currently The Attorney General for The United Kingdom at the time of this email, Daily express, Daily Mail, Julia Hartley Brewer, Jonathan Pie, Iain Dale, free speech union, Pierce Bainbridge, L lin Wood, Jonathan Guills, Telegraph investigations departement, Lindsay Hole, Kemi Badenoch, Jacob Rees Mogg, defund the BBC (since Calvin Robinson works there hoping that the email in question is referred to Calvin Robinson), Guido Fawkes, Daily express, The Crown Prosecution Service (specifically their inquiries departement), The Attorney General office, The Advertising Standards Authority, Ofcom, The Spectator UK, The Spectator USA and The Spectator Australia, Douglas Murray (who I was hoping that if The Spectator did not see the email in question that since Douglas Murray works for The Spectator, Douglas Murray would notify The Spectator of the email in question), The Private Eye, The equalities office for the United Kingdom, MP Desmond Swayne, I news editorial division, I news reader division, Calvin Robinson, Konstantin Kisin, Count Dankulas Lawyer, Crimebodge, CPS London Magistratex and Solicitor Ian Guld who all of them have not reply me back (or in the case of Gudio Fawkes refuse to read the email in question below due to its length or in the case of CPS London Magistrates life gets in the way and I get nervous due to me not being certain if this was the right address or due to previous experiences if I was going to be taken seriously) but thought you might be interested in as it deals with intustonlized misconduct and corruption.
Keep in mind this I don't not wish to make any personal finical gain out of this and that for this to be referred to cps as soon as possible as these potentially illegal pratices as stated within the email in question has lead to some personal to me defndning abhorrent things (I.e. Jacob blake) and believing in falsehoods.
I was originally going to do this as one big post but dye to reddit 40000 characters on post policy one had to split this into 2 parts.
My hope for this email is to kick-start an investigation which can then not only be published but also be referred to the likes of CPS for further investigation which can result in potential prosecutions as further explained in the email in question not only can these illegal/misleading pratices affect and decive people but also can cause them into defending people who have committed abhorrent things.
For The Private eye, The Spectator and Douglas Murray I sent this a list of commands offering this story but to no avail with these list of 8 demands:
  1. To be a able to send my investigation annoymusly without fear of reprisal.
  2. If it is publishded in one of your issues then for it to be done in both of your magazines and in the case of The Private Eye as a special report similar to that of the expose of the post office back in March/April of 2020.
  3. For this to be kept under wraps and not to be reported in either magizine until all investigations and trials have been completed.
  4. For this to be considered my extremely early entry for the next Paul Foot award.
  5. For this to be sent to both the head of The Crown Prosecution Service and The Attorney General of The United Kingdom (as well as their respective body's).
  6. For both Ian Hislop and Andrew Neil to be kept away from this due to it relating to a former employer which would consistitue a conflict of interest if either of them got involved in this.
  7. If this does lead to legal action being taken then for me to be able to testify anonymously due to me being both underage (17 at the time of writing this email) and autistic.
  8. For Ofcom, The Crown Prosecution Service and for The Attorney Geneal to be questioned on why I wasnt contacted back about this.
Keep in mind this since the original version of the email in question was made and sent I've encountered even more evidence of misconduct by the BBC, Channel 4, Channel 4 news and a new offender in the form of sainsbury's so the email in question is to be treated similar to that of the theratical cut of a film as I'm developing what amounts to the directors cut of the email in question.
If there's things that are outdated in the email in question that's because this was sent originally on the 8th of September 2020 so information should be correct at the time of the email in question.
Email in question:
Dear Ofcom, Advertising Standards Authority and Crown Prosecution Service
I am writing this to present evidence which can easily lead to an investigation into multiple people and organisations with those being: Naga Munchetty, Lewis Goodall, Channel 4 news, Cathy Newman, John Snow, Dorothy Byrne The Guardian, Channel 4 and the BBC.
In regards to Naga Munchetty she has recently be found to not only have been paid to do a speech with Rollys Royce durning a virtual conference but also that she did consult the BBC first and actively tried to hide it so it would be wise to see if she's been involved in any other finical conflicts of interest recently.
Naga Munchetty caught trying to hide a massive conflict of interest in regards to her speaker role with Rolls Royce: https://inews.co.uk/news/naga-munchetty-conflict-interest-warning-bbc-moonlighting-aston-martin-pr-video-574797
In regards to Lewis Goodall (who by the way has worked for progressive think tank Institute for Public Policy Research in the past as well as working inside 10 Downing Street under Theresa May before working back in brodcasting) has recently did a front page cover story for The New Statesman (who by the way on their website says their liberal and progressive) which is not only a conflict of interest in regards to due impartiality but also a finical conflict of interest since Lewis Goodall is being paid as a guest columnist to critize the government even though under 15.3.17 of the BBC's impartality guidelines bans anyone from expressing strong views, advocating against a policy and exhorting change in a policy.
How even the Institute for Public Policy own website describe themselves as a progressive think tank: https://www.ippr.org/

In regards to Channel 4 news I have been noticing that they've have been omitting information from their news reports (as well as not correcting errors from previous news reports which if included said information would change the entire context of their news story. In order to give you an idea of this I shall use 11 examples to prove my point.
Example 1: https://www.channel4.com/news/protests-erupt-in-wisconsin-after-police-shooting-of-black-man
Example 2: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=QoMKHlciP-4#
Example 3 (same as example 2 but only 6 minutes instead of 10 minutes): https://www.channel4.com/news/former-trump-adviser-defends-wisconsin-police-who-shot-jacob-blake-in-the-back
Example 4 (same video as example 11): https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=v4metQOo67I
Not only have Channel 4 news decided not to disclose the fact that in all of the first four examples that the police were there to arrest Jacob Blake for allegedly committing sexual assult (as well as having an arrest warrant for a previous felony sexual assult charge) minutes before the police arrived on scene (which is falsely claimed in example 1 that Jacob was there to break up a domestic dispute between two women which in reality had violated a restraining order as well as the fact that the victims car keys was stolen which she then called the cops and purses Jacob which wasn't disclosed in any of the first four examples) and the fact that the police allegedly told Jacob to "drop the knife" which why they had tasered him in the first place but also that when police told him to stop not not only did Jacob go to the car which had multiple children inside but also that not only was it later revealed that Jacob confessed to having a knife but also said knife was found inside the floorboards of the car (which the alleged sexual assult plus the fact that Jacob was tasered and ignored the cops about to get a knife out of the car was the reason why he was shot which goes directly against example 1 claim of Jacob being unarmed when shot which wasn't corrected in examples 2, 3 and 4) with Channel 4 news also failing to disclose in example 4 that Jacob Blake's father has made several anti-semitic and anti-white comments on Facebook.

Example 5: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=lDLtondx66k

Not only have Channel 4 news decided not to disclose the fact that Kyle Rittenhouse lawyer has claimed that Kyle Rittenhouse was working as a community lifeguard on the day in question to help out clean graffiti and damage from a local highschool (with Channel 4 news also claiming he's a white supremacist even though there has been no evidence to condclude that Kyle was part of a white supremacist group as the local vigantile group The Kenosha Guard has said that they're not certain if Kyle Rittenhouse were part of their group so the claim of white supremacist is unproven at best and baseless and false at worst) whilst also withholding the fact that Kyle received information of a call from a local auto dealership who need help protecting his business from further destruction (where once police dispersing a croward came past Kyle where although they were being taunting and threatened towards Kyle no physical altercation took place) but also that in the guns used in the killing were not only provided to Kyle (which is falsely claimed in example 5 and not corrected in example 6 that the guns used in the killing were from outside the state of Wisconsin as well as not disclosing the fact that Kyle may have a claim to self defence due to how wide Wisconsin state law on concealed carrying in regards to an exception for rifles and shotguns, intended to allow people age 16 and 17 to hunt as well as Channel 4 news not disclosing that Wisconsin is an open carry state) and from within the state of Wisconsin but also that not only did the local police change formation and close down a route which Kyle used to go between the auto mechanic shop and gas station after Kyle went back to the gas station the second time after helping out people who were injured by admistrating first aid or directing them to place which dealt with more serious injuries (and confirming there were no more injuries) Kyle after learning that the police had blocked his path back to the auto shop and complying with them was going back to the gas station where Mr. Rittenhouse was latter seen being chased by an unknown group of people into the parking lot of another dealership several blocks away when Kyle's first victim Joseph Rosebum (who Channel 4 news hid the fact that he was a convicted pedophile and had occured 42 disciplinary infractions in Arizona federal prison) not only taunted at Kyle to shoot him in the head (which channel 4 news also hid the fact of) but also that then at the same time an unknown 3rd party trying to shoot at Kyle (which Channel 4 news did not disclose) which then lead to Kyle not only running for his life but also that whilst being chased down not only was Kyle ambushed by Joseph Rosebum who tried and failed to disarm him (with Channel 4 news also failing to disclosing that something was thrown at Kyle Rittenhouse by Joseph Rosebum) who then got shot and later died, Gaige Grosskreutz and Anthony Hubertried tried to ambush Kyle (who Channel 4 news in example 4 and not corrected in example 5 claim that both were not armed even though video evidence is show with Gauge Grosskreutz having a gun) with Kyle then running for his life who unintentionality tripped over and with two people attacking him on the ground (with Anthony Hubertried using a skateboard to smash Kyle over the head and Gauge Grosskreutz having a gun which Channel 4 news did not disclosing the fact that both Anothh Hubertried and Gauge Grosskreutz were armed with Channel 4 news also falsely claiming that they were both unarmed along with not disclosing the fact that they both had criminal records for battery, strangulation and intoxication with Gauge Grosskreutz having a gun) and just as other people where closing in on Kyle, after Kyle shot twice (one to Anothny Hubertried who later died and one to Gauge Grosskreutz) after calling someone saying that he killed then tried to turn himself in but the police ignored him at the time wanting for him to move from the area (which Channel 4 news did not disclose the fact that he handed himself into Antioch, Illinois police).
The fact that even the local malitia group The Kenosha Guard is uncertain if Kyle Rittenhouse was connected to their group as well as confessing to someone on the phone that he killed someone: https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/crime/what-we-know-so-far-about-kyle-rittenhouse-accused-vigilante-in-kenosha-shooting/ar-BB18p9Dw

In regards to Cathy Newman in terms of what she did in the video below her actions would fall under both Monroe v Hopkins of 2017 and McAlpine v Bercow of 2013 as not only did Cathy knew what she was saying was wrong but also unlike Monroe V Hopkins of 2017 (where you can at least say that Katie Hopkins intially didn't realise that her comments were addressed to the wrong person) and McAlpine v Bercow of 2013 (where you can say at least that Bercow didn't realise that the information she was intially spreading at the time was false) when push came to shove and CCTV evidence showed that Cathy Newman had lied in her tweets although both Cathy Newman and Dorothy Byrne did later apologise not only did the mosque in question receive death threats but also that Cathy Newman then later did another bad faith interview with Jordan Peterson.

In regards to Jon Snow after the investigation into the pro-brexit rally he was cleared of back in 2019 there may have been a line of inquiry missed in terms of that investigation as back in 2017 allegations came out against Jon Snow where it's alleged that durning Glastonbury (on the day before a mass address was to be made by Jeremy Corbyn) John Snow made disparaging comments about the Tories (which he then said he had no recollection of saying that) which from all the evidence that I can see wasn't investigated by anybody (though Channel 4 did at least remind Jon Snow of of his duties in regards to due impartality) which could constitute evidence of bad character under The Criminal Justice Act of 2003 Chapter 1 evidence of bad character explanatory notes.

In regards to Dorothy Byrne not only was she the person who has overseen seen the potentially misleading news reporting of Channel 4 news and both the Cathy Newman and Jon Snow situations but also back in 2019 durning 2019 durning her MacTaggart lecture Dorothy Byrne had called Boris Johnson both "a coward" (but did also say that Jeremy Corbyn was "a coward") and "a known liar" as well as comparing him to Vladimir Putin (as well as doubling down on her comments after initial comments) which if it was said privately but leaked to the public would be concerning but at the very least you could say that their her own private personal views or if it was a low ranking Channel 4 news you could say she's lacks authority to do newspieces however though this was said in public and was videotaped which not only calls into question due impartality since she's the head of Channel 4 news (which a reasonable person would suspect that Dorothy Buren would order her employees to do more negative stories on Boris Johnson since she has an axe to grind with Boris Johnson) but also that this was said back in August 22-23 2019 about 3-4 months to the 2019 General Election a reasonable person would suspect that Dorothy Buren would order her employees to do more negative stories on Boris Johnson since she has an axe to grind with Boris Johnson along the fact that with the above statement above Boris Johnson it would be in her best interest in protecting people who disavow Boris Johnson which is why there needs to be an independent investigation into Jon Snow's comments at Glastonbury as well as a reinvestigation into his comments at the Pro-brexit rally instead of an internal investigation by Channel 4 news since not only would it be a conflict of interest but also that the investigation would be buried and turned into a complete and utter whitewash.

2020.11.21 07:52 mercuryspork Shreveport attorney Royal Alexander thinks you're stupid.

Let’s just get this out of the way right now, Shreveport attorney Royal Alexander is very important and has lots of money, and he even has his very own Wikipedia page which he probably didn't write most of.
He also thinks the readers of the Shreveport Times are very, very stupid.
Let us step carefully through the minefield of horseshit Shreveport attorney Royal Alexander has laid out for us:
It’s been interesting to watch virtually all major media declare that former Vice President Joe Biden "won" the election.
Imagine that! News networks accurately reporting who got the most votes in an election! Scandal! Such things are just not done!
It’s humorous to see Biden standing in front of the "Office of the President Elect" banner because there is no such office or position.
A BANNER? With WORDS on it? Words that universally been used to refer to the winner of presidential elections for decades with absolutely zero controversy? Heavens to fucking Betsy, that IS humorous, Royal!
Facts don’t seem to matter anymore, so maybe Royal Alexander is insinuating that Biden is the first person to have been elected president to use that term.
But wait!

Description
English: Trump Transition Logo
Date10 November 2016
Sourcehttps://www.greatagain.gov/
AuthorDonald Trump Transition Team
That’s strange! It looks like somebody hacked wikimedia to make it look like the Trump people were using the phrase "president elect" as early as November 10, 2016! That can't be right.
Also, look at what else I found! It's one of those "law" things that Shreveport Attorney Royal Alexander should at least pretend to have some passing familiarity with:
The Congress declares it to be the purpose of the Act to promote the orderly transfer of the executive power in connection with the expiration of the term of office of a President and the inauguration of a new President. The national interest requires that such transitions in the office of President be accomplished so as to assure continuity in the faithful execution of the laws and in the conduct of the affairs of the Federal Government, both domestic and foreign. Any disruption occasioned by the transfer of the executive power could produce results detrimental to the safety and well-being of the United States and its people. 
(Not that Royal Alexander has any interest in the safety and well-being of the United States and its people, but I digress.)
SERVICES AND FACILITIES AUTHORIZED TO BE PROVIDED TO PRESIDENTS-ELECT AND VICE PRESIDENTS-ELECT Sec. 3 (a) The Administrator of General Services, referred to hereafter in this Act as “the Administrator,” is authorized to provide, upon request, to each President-elect and each Vice President-elect, for use in connection with his preparations for the assumption of official duties as President or Vice President necessary services and facilities, including… 
Well, would you look at that, the term "president elect" is right there ensconced in a federal law. By the way, the process that's outlined in this law is not happening at present. The well-being of the United States and its people is being threatened by the (absolutely 100%) outgoing administration. That can't be good, can it? CAN IT, ROYAL?
It’s a positive development to see the General Services Administration (GSA) not release federal funds for the so-called "Biden Transition" to begin given no winner of the election has been ascertained.
Really, Shreveport attorney Royal Alexander? You think needlessly delaying the peaceful transfer of power is a GOOD thing? What kind of shitty, shitty attorney are you, Shreveport attorney Royal Alexander? Is your loyalty to the rule of law or to Trump? (Trick question! The answer is: neither. Shreveport attorney Royal Alexander is simply a craven, cynical opportunist pandering to an audience for whom he has nothing but contempt.)
The hatred for President Trump is so great that every imaginable form of distraction and confusion that can be enlisted to obscure the fact that no winner has been certified is being employed.
Those darned DEMON-RATS are so distracting and confusing!
As an attorney,
Oh boy, here we go.
I succeed or fail based upon the strength of the evidence I present in court. Period. Not feelings, opinions or innuendo. Just evidence.
Ok, Royal Alexander, present your evidence that Biden was not elected. What's that? You don't have any evidence? You just a few lazily assembled, already debunked bits of conspiratorial bullshit ? Well, ok, I'll allow it.
So, if the Trump Campaign is not able to gather and produce for the courts adequate, reliable evidence that widespread fraud has occurred, President Trump will lose the argument and the race. But not until.
That’s not actually how it works, but whatever. In any case, maybe things were different way back 16 hours ago when Royal Alexander’s article was posted to the Times' website but it turns out that, no, reliable evidence for widespread fraud has been presented by Trump’s Thriller video cosplay group of a legal team.
What do we know? We know that hundreds of individuals — alleging 1,000s of instances of fraud — in a position to know have signed affidavits that they have personal knowledge of fraud.
Affidavits are evidence and used in courts daily across the country. An affidavit is a written statement, under oath, that is sworn to be true. Signing an affidavit that contains false information can subject the individual to criminal penalties.
Thanks for lawyer-splaining what affidavits are, Royal Alexander, but it appears you're full of shit, according to reporters who report on what actually happens in the world:
"But among the witnesses who have had their allegations aired in court, many have been dismissed by judges as inadmissible or not credible. One particularly high-profile one alleged many precincts in Michigan had more votes than actual voters, but shortly after Giuliani et al. raised the issue Thursday — alongside their pleas to take the affidavits seriously — it fell apart.
As the Trump campaign will remind you, these are sworn statements. But according to legal experts, the jeopardy faced by those behind them is relatively minimal.
“There is a remote chance that sworn statements (if they are actually sworn statements — most documents that appear to be ‘sworn’ don’t count within the meaning of the statute) could subject the declarant to some exposure under the perjury statutes,” said Lisa Kerns Griffin, an expert on evidence at Duke University, in an email. “But perjury prosecutions are rare and almost never arise from statements outside of the context of proceedings in which oaths are formally administered — such as depositions, congressional testimony, grand jury proceedings, or trial testimony.”
One Michigan judge noted that the evidence wasn’t direct evidence, despite the Trump campaign’s contention that it was:
TRUMP LAWYER: Your Honor, in terms of the hearsay point, this is a firsthand factual statement made by Ms. Connarn, and she has made that statement based on her own firsthand physical evidence and knowledge —
JUDGE: “I heard somebody else say something.” Tell me why that’s not hearsay. Come on, now.
TRUMP LAWYER: Well it’s a firsthand statement of her physical –
JUDGE: It’s an out-of-court statement offered where the truth of the matter is asserted, right?
The judge later dismissed the complaint as “inadmissible hearsay within hearsay.”
Other witnesses signed affidavits that said, “I believe my vote for Donald J. Trump and Michael Pence was not counted.” But when pressed by judges, they admitted they didn’t have any actual evidence to support that."

Are all these people lying? Very unlikely.
Is Royal Alexander lying? Somewhat likely.

All of this is to say nothing of allegations that in Philadelphia, contrary to Pennsylvania state law, election observers were denied the right to monitor the counting of approximately 120,000 ballots because they were forced to stand back and away, for a 20-hour period, from where the counting was taking place, according to the New York Post. As a result, observers could not tell whether the ballots were correctly postmarked, addressed, signed and sealed as required by law. There are also allegations that ballots were backdated to appear timely.
Ok, yes, Royal Alexander is absolutely 100% lying, or MAYBE he’s just extremely stupid. (spoiler: he’s not stupid.) Take it away, reputable journalism!
"THE FACTS: These assertions are false. Trump is wholly misrepresenting a court case in the state and what happened at voting places. No one tried to ban poll watchers representing each side in the election. Democrats did not try to stop Republican representatives from being able to observe the process.
The main issue in the case was how close observers representing the parties could get to election workers who are processing mail-in ballots in Philadelphia. Trump’s representatives sued to allow the observers to get closer than the guidelines had allowed. A court ruled in favor of that request."

In Wisconsin, allegations that after election observers had gone home—sometime between 3-4 a.m.—over 100,000 ballots “appeared” and were counted and, in a statistically improbable way, all the ballots appeared to have voted for one candidate. In Milwaukee, the county moved quickly to alter its website registration portal so the pro-Biden vote tally did not appear so statistically improbable.
Imagine the fuck out of that, election results being announced.
“The city of Milwaukee ended up with about 170,000 absentee ballots when polls closed Tuesday. As of 11:15 p.m., 140,000 of the ballots had been processed and election officials expected to have vote totals for the city by 3 a.m. Wednesday, said George Christenson, Milwaukee County clerk.”
https://www.wpr.org/record-breaking-early-votes-milwaukee-ballots-play-pivotal-role-wisconsin
https://www.jsonline.com/story/news/politics/elections/2020/11/04/wisconsin-didnt-find-ballots-stop-count-voter-fraud-claims-untrue-politifact/6165435002/
The jump in Biden’s tally came when the central count facility in Milwaukee completed its tally of the mail-in votes around 3:30 a.m., reporting those all at once. That led to a long-predicted spike in Biden’s favor since Democrats are more likely to use vote absentee and Milwaukee is a heavily Democratic area."
But wait: shitty, lying Shreveport attorney Royal Alexander has a few more nuggets he wants to drop for us to step in:
In Michigan, allegations that observers were also denied access, again contrary to state law, to counting locations from which to observe the opening of ballots and the counting process. One woman who identified herself as an election volunteer in Clark County stated she had found a box of 500 ballots outside of the vote counting facility inscribed with the names of individuals who were not on the county’s voter rolls, according to a Trump campaign lawsuit.
Royal Alexander must have felt that he’d sufficiently pandered to the Times’ readership by this point, because he gets a little vague here, because it’s not clear what lawsuit he’s referring to. It kinda doesn’t matter because just about all of the Trump campaign’s nuisance lawsuits have been dismissed. See, there’s a reason why these lawsuits are not being run by lawyers who are experts in election law. Because those lawyers keep quitting:
"Over the past 10 days, three large law firms have distanced themselves from him and his claims, with two of them withdrawing from litigation altogether. One of those firms was replaced Sunday after the Trump campaign’s lawsuit was significantly narrowed in response to losing elsewhere.
But the three lawyers who were left have now also moved to withdraw, and a judge has allowed two of them to do so. What’s more, they’ve been replaced by a lead counsel, Marc Scaringi, who said recently that Trump’s legal effort “will not reverse this election.”

Our sacred right to vote is a fundamental right and held inviolate for American citizens including the 73 million who voted for President Trump.
But BIDEN voters? Fuck them! And fuck them ESPECIALLY if they’re aren’t as lily white as Royal Alexander. The depths of ratfuckery that Trump has sunk to — and which Royal Alexander clearly approves — are astonishing:
"Trump and his allies have presented no evidence of fraud or widespread error in any of these cities, and courts have repeatedly declined to grant their requests to invalidate ballots. Still, the president shows no signs of backing down, prompting Black leaders, political analysts and historians to cry foul at what they described as tactics reminiscent of those used to suppress the voice of Black voters following the Civil War.
“It’s as vile now as it was during Reconstruction, when Democrats believed that Republicans were illegitimate and that Black voters had no right to be voting, and they did all of these terrorist activities to block African Americans from voting,” said Carol Anderson, professor of African American studies at Emory University. “It’s a very narrow, slippery slope, from saying ‘illegal votes’ to ‘illegal voters,’ so this attack on Black voters is real.”

If former VP Biden becomes president under these circumstances he would delegitimize and lame-duck his presidency at its very beginning.
Uh oh! Lying, racist Shreveport attorney Royal Alexander seems to be close to saying the quiet part out loud: the PURPOSE of Trump’s nuisance lawsuits and not to win, it’s to give Trump and his disgusting worshippers like blah-blah Shreveport blah-blah dickhead Alexander an excuse to continuously repeat the baseless, fact-free accusations of voter fraud in order to delegitimize Biden’s presidency.
Win at all costs has costs.
As with all things Trump, he's turned his post-defeat tantrum into a money making scam.
People can accept losing if they lose fairly and squarely and the contest was conducted honestly.
Oh for fuck's sake.
We’re a long way from knowing that.
We’re REALLY not, shitty, lying, democracy-hating Shreveport attorney Royal Alexander. But that’s not going to stop you from expressing your contempt for democracy and our country’s legal system by spreading lies, debunked conspiracy theories, and just good old fashioned bullshit.

2020.11.21 05:18 rosebudpng Decades of Sorrow: 40-years of grief for Wisconsin's Menominee Tribe as four of their own met with mysterious fates, three missing and one murdered.

The Menominee Indigenous Tribe is a is group Native American/Indigenous peoples that reside in Keshena, Wisconsin, about 45 miles (86.9 km) northwest of Green Bay. The tribe has a deep, rich history dating back 10,000 years, primarily in the areas of modern day Wisconsin, Michigan, and Illinois. Despite efforts from the federal government to reduce their land-size and eradicate their cultural identity, the Menominee have persevered and remain proud of their culture.
However this close-knit community that, by all accounts, seem to cherish those they call their own, have suffered 4 losses spanning 4 decades, none of which have resolutions. I really wish there was enough information out there to create individual write-ups for each of these people. Unfortunately, as is the case with many missing and murdered indigenous peoples, their cases are often under-reported and underrepresented in the media.
Therefore, I decided to shed some light on the cases happening within the Menominee Indigenous community. I can't find much information about who these victims are outside of their unfortunate circumstances, but I hope Lisa Ninham, Rae Elaine Tourtillott, Robert Lyons, and Katelyn Kelly (and their respective families) will see some form of justice one day.
Lisa Ninham
Lisa's case is the earliest and also the scarcest when it comes to information. There isn't even a photo of her available online, from what I can tell. All I can find is that Lisa Lynn Ninham was reported missing in 1980 (I couldn't find her age, nor the month in which she was reported missing), and hasn't been seen since. Her father, Benjamin Lyle Ninham, died on October 16, 2013 at the age of 76. His obituary states that he was preceded in death by his daughter, Lisa, and his first wife, Delores Ninham. Based on the timeline found in Benjamin's obituary, I tentatively conclude that Delores was Lisa's mother, and that Lisa was officially declared deceased some time after her disappearance. I think it's really regrettable that both of her parents passed without knowing what happened to their daughter. I hope that one day new information will surface to help solve her case.
Rae Elaine Tourtillott
Rae Elaine Tourtillott was 18-years-old when she went missing. She was last seen on October 15, 1986 attending a birthday party with five friends in Keshena on the Menominee Reservation. After the party, she was spotted entering a vehicle that occupied two individuals. I can't find any information on the make and model of the car, or if these two people have been found and questioned. However, Rae was reportedly seen exiting the vehicle on Tomow Overlook off of Old South Branch Road, also on the Menominee Reservation. After failing to return home, Rae was reported missing the following day.
Devastatingly, the area where she was last seen alive is also where her body would be found six months later. On April 9, 1987, Rae's body was recovered by Menominee Tribal Police and the FBI in a swampy area near Tomow Overlook. Details about her cause of death and the state of the body haven't been released to the public, but officials have declared her death to be a result of foul play. Over the years, several officials have stated that there are persons of interest in the case, but no official suspects have been named. In March of 2019, former police Chief Robert Summers stated that they had a suspect, but lacked the evidence to initiate an arrest.
Rae is survived by her daughter, Alysse Arce, who was only two months old when her mother died. Alysse laments that cases of indigenous peoples are often lost or forgotten in the system. "They need to start doing something because there’s too many cases like this that get lost and that are cold cases," Alysse states, "It’s not just our family, it’s a bunch of families that are feeling the same way." In fact, because the Wisconsin Department of Justice did not track cases prior to 1997, Rae's case is one of many not represented in the crime database.
The FBI is offering a reward of up to $15,000 for information that could lead to the arrest of those responsible for Rae's murder.
Robert Lyons
Robert Lyons is a 24-year-old member of the Menominee Tribe. Clearly proud of his heritage, Robert has "Menominee" tattooed across his upper back from shoulder to shoulder, an eagle on the back of his neck, the words "Native Pride" on his calf, a bear on his left forearm, and his last name with a feather on his right forearm.
Robert was last seen riding his white ATV within the reservation on June 4, 2017. He left his residence on the ATV, wearing only shoes and shorts, but no shirt, and was later seen driving it near Long Marsh Road. Five days later, the ATV was later found abandoned on Maynard's Loop Road near Long Marsh Road and Rush's Lake Road. Robert has never been found. Along with the lack of shirt, Robert also left his cell phone at home, indicating that he most likely did not plan on being gone for very long.
The Menominee Tribe is offering a $5,000 reward for any information on the whereabouts of Robert.
Katelyn Kelley
Katelyn Kelley is a 22-year-old woman from Shawano County, who was reported missing by her mother on June 18th, 2020. Family members became suspicious of her whereabouts after not hearing from her for two days, which they say is unusual for her.
Reports state that Katelyn was last seen on the Menominee Reservation near County Highway VV and Silver Canoe Road at approx.10:30 pm on June 16th, and later that night at her apartment in Shawano between 11:30 p.m. and 3:00 a.m. Police believe it is possible that someone picked her up near the highway, which was about 8 miles from her home, and drove her to her apartment in Shawano. Tribal members are on edge, as this is around the same area that Rae Elaine Tourtillott's body was found in 1987.
Katelyn is is about 5'2" (159 cm) tall, and 140 lbs (approx. 64 kg). She has black hair and brown eyes. Katelyn was last seen wearing a grey t-shirt, black swimsuit top, blue jean shorts and black flip-flops.
The Menominee Tribe is offering a $5,000 reward for any information on the whereabouts of Katelyn.
Discussion
According to the CDC, homicide is the fourth leading cause of death for American Indigenous and Alaskan Native girls and women between 1 and 19-years-old, and the sixth leading cause of death in these woman between the ages of 20 and 44-years-old. Homicide is also the third leading cause of death in American Indigenous and Alaskan Native boys and men between 1 and 19-years-old, and the fifth leading cause of death in these men between the ages of 20 and 44-years-old. While I hope that Robert and Katelyn will be found alive, these statistics are disheartening, to say the least.
In the case of Lisa Ninham, I don't think she is alive. However, since there is practically zero information about her life out there, it's really hard to draw any conclusions.
For Rae, I'm wondering if her murder was committed by someone she knew (as is often the case). I can't find anything about her child's father, or the people she was last seen with. Truly, the lack of info is very frustrating, though I'm sure the FBI and Menominee Tribe police are purposefully keeping a lot of these details close to their chests.
If you have any information regarding these missing persons, please call the Menominee Tribal Police tip line at 715-994-1307 or your local FBI field office.

2020.11.20 19:58 Dical19 Help! My boyfriend is making me feel crazy! 34 days off subs.

Off topic a little but totally related to my addiction... sorry so long. Basically looking for reassurance.
You guys have been GREAT to me and my recovery. I know this may not be the right place to post but I can’t imagine I’m the only one to have gone through a codependent relationship like this.
I was an a abusive marriage and with the asshole from 15yo until I was 35yo He completely groomed me to put up with horrible physical and emotional abuse. He took away any sense of self esteem or self confidence very early on in the relationship by putting me down in every way possible. Name calling, your stupid, no one would want you, you leave me and you will be alone forever. Your crazy, your a drug addict (at that time though I was on pain pills but they were for a legit condition and I wasn’t abusing. )
I had two kids with this monster. In the last two years of our marriage I don’t know what happened but I began to very actively abuse opiates. I was functional, had a great job, took care of my kids and endured my husbands abuse. I was definitely self-medicating.
It only took one incident for him to beat the shit out of me in front of my 9 year old. I was still recovering from a spinal fusion at the time, but the sheer terror and angst I saw on my sons face snapped me back to reality. I began to plan our escape. (He had threatened my employer and my therapy clinic that he would kill the kids, me and himself. Then take it back. Then say it again ) I believed he would do it. I believed at that point after all the years anything he said.
My therapist helped me to get ready by basically having the kids and my things (some clothes, pictures, important memos) always ready in the trunk of my car for when we would leave.
Fast forward to now. I’ve been divorced for years. The asshole dropped out of our lives because he wasn’t about to pay child support. It hurt my kids immensely. But I know they are better off.
I felt I needed to give that background to get into the current problem relationship.
My new boyfriend and I got together almost immediately after I left my husband. We met through mutual friends. He knew what I went through and was the most kind and thoughtful man I had ever met! I had never in my life seen or had a man treat me so well. So of course I fell hard. He did give me an ultimatum after only dating for two weeks. I had to quit the pills. He had an addict ex girlfriend and he wasn’t going to go down that road again. I immediately cold turkeyed from about 180mg of hydrocodone a day. I didn’t need them anymore. I was high on love. I felt no pain. I was in love.
I moved him into my condo with my kids. I didn’t charge him rent, nor groceries, nor WiFi/cable or electric. I cleaned the house and bathrooms as “my jobs”. He did any repairs needed and handled garbage duty. We split laundry. Sometimes him. Sometimes me. And he cooked every night because I can’t I suck.
About a year into our relationship I noticed his drinking was getting way crazy. He always drank a 6 pack every nite like everyone and their mother in Wisconsin. No biggy. But then he started getting 15 packs because they were a good deal and would drink them all and become fall down drunk. In fact he fell one night and me and my kids had to carry him to the car because his ankle was just hanging on by skin. He had almost just taken the whole thing off. Severed at the foot. They had to wait until he sobered up to take him into surgery where his foot is like the terminators now.
Something in my head clicked then. Do I want my kids to think this is normal behavior? That this is ok?
I tried talking to him about his drinking but he is in classic denial. He always tells me he is cutting back. Even as I look at 15 empty cans. He has told me if you think I’m going to stop drinking then I guess this is goodbye. But never leaves.
I had a relapse. Surprise surprise in July 2018. Hid it from him the entire time. I was angry. Here I am supposed to get sober and I’m working my ass off and fighting for it. But he can drink himself into oblivion everyday as long as he waits until after work? And then talk shit to me in the throes of withdrawal? So wrong!
In 10/2018 I came clean about relapsing and that I was starting suboxone. Now any argument I’m a junkie. I’m a loser. I’m doing heroin. Alcohol is legal. I’m a psycho. I’m crazy. I’m delusional.
This is in response to catching him in person once with his ex. A year or two later finding texts from an emotional affair, possibly physically with his friends wife. I told the dude. They were able to convince him I’m crazy. Even though I sent screenshots. 🤷🏻‍♀️ and yes I still stayed. Because it was easier.
Where was the man I met? How did it go from loving and kind back to emotionally abusive? I’ve tried talking to him a million times but it’s like talking to with brick wall.
So now, I’m 770 days off H. 34 days off suboxone and 5 days off the Vicodin I used to help with withdrawl. I did this with NO HELP from him. He talked shit to me the whole time I struggled in the beginning. I cried,begged, pleaded with him that I needed his support. His response is he sits in one room every night listening to music and slamming his 15 or 18 pack of beer.
In the beginning of my withdrawal I wanted to go to NA but he wouldn’t let me. Because that’s where you go off and do drugs with other junkies.
Now that I’m feeling better and much more clear headed I see how shitty this has got. He tells me all the time about my kids being assholes. (They aren’t. One is in another state at college and the other is in high school and is always off with his girlfriend or friends.) Right now I’m unemployed and can’t find a job to save my life so he has for the first time in 6 years had to contribute financially. But talks shit about it to me. How he pays for everything and he’s not doing it. He’s going to move out. He can’t stand this crazy house. Then the next am wakes up sober and shaking and pretends it didn’t happen. Well I’m sober now so it’s hard for me to pretend any longer.
The last straw was last night. He was bitching that my oldest was coming home for thanksgiving and he didn’t want him to. And then started bitching about the other one because he is always anxious. Hmmmm I wonder why. Right after this my younger son tried to leave the house with his girlfriend without cleaning his hoarders bedroom which he knew he was supposed to do. For the first time ever he stood up to me and said he was leaving and that he was going to do whatever he wants. Boyfriend enters and doesn’t know what my son and i are arguing about but he starts yelling, “why don’t you leave us all alone psycho! Go get more drugs. Oh yeah your broke. “ I FLIPPED SHIT. he undermined me in front of my son. Who know probably thinks his behavior is acceptable. So I decided fuck this. I’ll show them psycho! I screamed “y’all can FUCK off!” Got in my car took off at about 2:45pm and returned at 10pm. Went to a girlfriends.
This morning my son showed me a text the boyfriend accidentally sent my son. It was obviously meant for a female but the text said I’m out of here. Too much time invested for nothing. It’s time. I need a new chapter. Can’t live with this bitch any longer.
He then made my son promise not to tell me. So now, I want this motherfucker out of my house. He owes me money that I’ll never see and I’ll be left raising my one son and myself with no income. My unemployment ran out in September. Every time I’ve tried to kick him out he gaslights me. I’m crazy. I’m unreasonable. He will cut back the drinking (he’s tried. He can’t even for one day) How he’s wasted years on me for nothing!
I secretly think my ex and my boyfriend were waiting around on me using me because my parents have “money”. Lol. But they really don’t. They live nice and will until they die but the money that was brought in while they worked is just not there anymore.
I grew up with 2 alcoholic parents and a million alcoholic aunts, uncles and grandparents. It was “normal” to me until I realized it wasn’t. I’m a total codependent person who doesn’t like to be alone and will latch on to the next asshole to berate me.
Basically, this is bad right? I should leave a relationship like this right? I just feel bad because my kids do love him. He’s been there only father figure. But I didn’t leave a shit marriage for this shit!
Help! Advice! Sorry so long. 😔

2020.11.19 22:44 Nicksvibes Child Support, Economic Slavery & Misandry

INTRODUCTION

Men's reproductive rights are rarely if at all discussed in the mainstream. Just look at what happens when you tell a feminist that there are 'no rights to take away from men' in a conversation where she screeches about pro-lifers wanting to take away women's abortions or hell just look at what happens when you tell the average person that there are male statutory rape victims who are still paying child support. You are always met with the same confused and or angry look or you are hit with male hyperagency/'women pay child support, too' type of arguments.
In more pro-choice countries, women are not seen as active agents who consent to be parents once intercourse takes place and because of that they are not legally obliged to be parents - they have access to safe abortions. Am I saying it is always easy to get an abortion especially if you live in a traditional pro-life family? No, but on average a woman has the choice to refuse parenthood no matter the cause of the pregnancy. On the other hand, a man is assumed to be an agent who consents to be a parent which means he can be held accountable for his actions and since men don't have the same autonomy as women, the only way to hold them accountable is to order men who don't want to be parents to pay child support to the mother who has full control over her partner's or ex-partner's fate, that is she decides whether the child is born or not (the father has no legal right to intervene, but he can be held accountable and forced to financially support the choices of the mother. It is unlawful of him to refuse to do so).

MEN'S REPRODUCTIVE RIGHTS

I dug up some info on men's reproductive rights, specifically in the US, and the idea that a man is accountable for his actions, that is he consents to be a father at the time of conception is so embedded in family courts that even boys/men who have been a victim of stolen sperm, also known as 'sperm jacking', sexual abuse or even men who are not the genetic fathers of the child can sometimes be ordered to pay child support. "The child is an innocent party, therefore his/her needs have to be put before the needs of the man" is a common excuse which courts have used to rationalise their misandry.
Quoting from: When male victims are held accountable
Seyer was 12 when he was raped by his 16-year-old babysitter Colleen Hermesmann who became pregnant and in 1989 was charged with statutory rape. Instead of being convicted of rape, Hermesmann was declared a juvenile offender under the non-sexual offense of 'contributing to child misconduct'. Seyer was subsequently court-ordered to pay child support.
That's one story where a victim of rape in spite of being a minor was ordered to pay child support by the very same system that is said to 'protect' rape victims. We can confidently assert this is economic slavery and victim blaming. The story continues:
In 1993, at age 15, Seyer appealed this decision to the Kansas Supreme Court, arguing he should not be liable for these payments. He maintained that his babysitter (Hermesmann) took advantage of him when he was too young to give consent. The court ruled against him and the judge stated that because Seyer initially 'consented' to the sexual encounters and never told his parents what was happening, he was responsible for supporting the child.
This is a a clear example of male hyperagency, victim blaming and rape culture. It gets even worse:
This court case set a precedent for male rape victims to make child-support payments. The financial needs of the child outweigh the court's interest in deterring sexual crimes against male minors, even if statutory rape is the cause of conception.
Clearly, the 'financial needs' of the child don't just 'outweigh' the needs of the victim as the judge made it quite clear he was okay with the boy being raped as he 'consented'. This isn't the one and only incident where the 'needs of the child' have been used to rationalise such disgusting treatment of male rape victims. There are more stories some of which are quite recent.
In 2014, Nick Olivas of Arizona was forced to pay over $15,000 in back-payments to a woman who raped him when he was 14. She was 20 years old at the time.
Being forced to pay over $15,000 to your rapist and having to fear the consequences of not doing so (such as potential jail time, loss of civil rights) definitely doesn't sound oppressive, does it?
In 1996, the court heard the case of County of San Luis Obispo v. Nathaniel J in which a 34-year-old woman became pregnant after sexually exploiting a 15-year-old boy. He was also forced to pay child support, and then Deputy Attorney General Mary Roth alleged: 'I guess he thought he was a man then. Now, he prefers to be considered a child'.
Can you imagine if a girl was told 'I guess she thought she was a woman then. Now, she prefers to be considered a child' in response to her being a rape victim and wanting to be relieved from the obligation of having to financially support another human for years?
The next story is that of a male rape victim who was incapacitated and incapable of consenting, but was still ordered to pay child support in spite of the fact that the courts were aware of the incident.
Quoting from: Fatherhood by conscription
In 1992, an Alabama man (S.F.) attended a party at the home of a female friend (T.M). He arrived at the party intoxicated and shortly thereafter passed out in a bed. The other partygoers eventually left for the evening, leaving S.F. in the sole care of T.M. When S.F. awoke the next morning, he was surprised to find that all of his clothing had been removed during the night. Over the next few months, T.M. would openly boast to several people about how she had engaged in sexual intercourse with S.F. while he was unconscious. She would even go as far as to describe the evening as one that had 'saved her a trip to the sperm bank'. T.M. gave birth to a child, and genetic testing confirmed that S.F. was the biological father. The state of Alabama, on behalf of T.M., brought an action against S.F. to collect child support. The lower court entered a judgement against S.F., requiring him to pay $106 a week and also $8,960 in arrears.
On appeal, S.F. argued that the court should relieve him of the liability given that 'he did not have consensual intercourse with T.M. and that he was a victim of sexual assault by T.M. The court, however, rejected S.F.'s argument, stating: 'The child is an innocent party... [A]ny wrongful conduct on the part of the mother should not alter the father's duty to provide support for the child'.
In other words, the rapist boasted about being a rapist, bragged about impregnating herself, but the court refused to take that into consideration and instead put the victim in the good 'provider' box that was built for him. These are just some amongst possibly tons of other cases where a male victim of rape has been held accountable for his rapist's misconduct and forced to financially support her child. In each case, the court ruled against the victim despite knowing he was the victim.
There's more and this one is beyond ludicrous:
Similar to S.F., in In re Paternity of Daniel S.H., a Wisconsin father, Daniel, claimed that the mother, Jennifer, engaged in nonconsensual sexual intercourse with him after lacing his drink with “a date rape drug.” In an action to collect child support for the resulting child (a son named Derek), the lower court allowed Daniel to introduce evidence of nonconsent. Even so, the court placed the burden of proof on Daniel, requiring him “to prove all factual issues by clear, satisfactory, and convincing evidence." Ultimately, “[t]he jury found that Daniel’s sexual intercourse with Jennifer was involuntary." Nevertheless, the lower court still required Daniel to pay child support.On appeal, Daniel argued that the lower court’s order was in error and that “the jury’s finding of lack of consent should bar or reduce his child support obligation.”
The Court of Appeals of Wisconsin, however, agreed with the lower court because “[t]he paramount goal of any child support decision is to secure the best interests of the child” and that, in this case, “Derek was not at fault” and thus “was entitled to receive child support from both parents.” Despite agreeing with the lower court’s determination of child support, the Court of Appeals nonetheless disagreed with the lower court putting the issue of consent to the jury. Specifically, the Court of Appeals found no statutory basis for permitting a jury to consider consent when ruling on the issue of child support. Instead, the Court of Appeals ruled that the only real question the jury had to answer was whether Daniel was the father: “Daniel had a right to have a jury decide whether he is Derek’s father. However, Daniel admitted he was Derek’s father. As a result, a judgment of paternity was entered. When the court determined that Daniel was Derek’s father, Daniel’s right to a jury trial was extinguished.”
What about 'stolen' sperm, a.k.a sperm jacking and paternity fraud?
Control over men's reproductive and sexual health is not as uncommon as most people would like to believe. In fact, it is very common.
Quoting from: Battered men: the hidden side of domestic violence. A review of CDC data
Approximately 10.4% (or an estimated 11.7 million) of men in the United States reported ever having an intimate partner who tried to get pregnant when they did not want to or tried to stop them from using birth control." 8.6% (or an estimated 10.3 million) of women in the United States reported ever having an intimate partner who tried to get them pregnant when they did not want to. (page 48)
One example is that of a man who was ordered to pay child support because he had engaged in oral sex with a nurse who allegedly took the sperm from his condom and used it to impregnate herself.
In 1983, Emile was visiting his sick parents at a Louisiana hospital. One evening, a nurse, Debra, offered to perform oral sex on him, but only if he wore a condom. He accepted. At the end of their sexual encounter, Debra agreed to dispose of the used condom. Emile, however, never witnessed this disposal and thus could not say what Debra ultimately did with either the condom or its contents. Nine months later she gave birth to a child, and genetic testing revealed a 99.9% probability that Emile was the father. The two never had sexual intercourse, only the one instance of oral sex with a condom. Nearly ten years later, the state filed an action against Emile to collect child support. Despite his objections, the lower court ordered the man to pay $436 per month, $17,909 in arrears, and 5% court costs.
The Court of Appeals of Louisiana affirmed, stating that '[t]he fact of paternity obliges a father to support his child'. In addressing the issue of Debra's self-insemination without Emile's consent, the court dismissed the point, merely noting that '[Emile's] own testimony showed that he had some sort of sexual contact with the plaintiff around the time frame of alleged conception'. The fact that any sexual contact occurred was sufficient to hold him liable for child support.
To summarise, engaging in sexual intercourse is enough to hold a man accountable for a child even if that child was conceived because a woman impregnated herself without his knowledge.
Here's another one:
An appellate court in Illinois reached a similar result in Phillips v. Irons. In that case, Dr. Richard Phillips and Dr. Sharon Irons began a dating relationship, during which time the couple engaged in oral sex on three occasions. The two never had sexual intercourse because Irons told Phillips that she was menstruating and thus needed to refrain from vaginal intercourse. Nonetheless, Phillips alleged that, unbeknownst to him, Irons used Phillips’s semen (obtained from oral sex) to successfully inseminate herself. Subsequently, Irons gave birth to a daughter and, soon thereafter, filed a “Petition to Establish Paternity and Other Relief ” against Phillips. Because he had ended the relationship with Irons over a year prior, Phillips had no knowledge of Irons’s pregnancy or the birth of the child. Nonetheless, DNA testing proved that Phillips was the biological father. Ignoring the deceptive manner in which the child was conceived, the court awarded child support to Irons in the amount of $800 a month, which was later increased to $1,600 a month.
Self-insemination is just one way a woman can deceive a man and impregnate herself. Lying about being on the pill, poking a hole in his condom are two other ways this can happen.
Paternity fraud is another issue that arises from strict liability. However, it is a more tricky one as some states have enacted protections to protect men from the practice such as Texas which passed a new law which allows men who doubt paternity a chance to file a claim. This allowed a Dallas man who was jailed due to his inability to pay child support to contest an accusation that he was the biological father. After a DNA paternity test disproved the claim of paternity, he was released from jail. Child support when paternity is in doubt
However, that doesn't eliminate paternity fraud as a whole and stop it from happening, say, in other states or countries. A couple of examples are the story of Chris Atkins who spent 11 years raising a daughter that was not his, but was still required by law to pay child support because his name was on her birth certificate. Atkins claims that despite paying, he doesn't have visitation rights. Colorado man forced to pay child support to ex-wife despite DNA test proving he is not the father of the child
The other story is that of a man from Detroit, Carnell Alexander who refused to pay child support for a child that was proven to not be his. As a result, a warrant was issued for his arrest. State tells Detroit man: pay for child that isn't yours or go to jail

GENDER INEQUALITY

Quoted from: Fatherhood by Conscription: Nonconsensual Insemination and the Duty of Child Support (link above)
In her book, The Neutered Mother, the Sexual Family and Other Twentieth Century Tragedies, Professor Martha Albertson Fineman points out that “[w]hile the dominant aspirational story for the past decades has been one of spousal ‘equality,’ great gender inequality in the allocation of the burdens and costs associated with family operation continues to affect how this story is played out in real lives.” The current approach to child support adjudication is a prime example of the inequality to which Fineman refers. Indeed, the few commentators who have criticized the court’s current approach of holding male victims liable for child support have done so primarily based on the way in which the current approach violates gender equality.
Ellen London’s commentary is particularly instructive: 'The traditional conceptions of power, dominance, and victimization employed by these courts precluded the judges from providing the defendants with a fair or adequate solution. Little doubt exists that the judges in these cases would have written different opinions if the victims were female—illuminating how men are viewed as the responsible party in a sexual encounter and women have no corresponding agency.' In fact, consider the one case in which a court was called upon to decide whether a female victim of sexual assault was liable for child support. In DCSE/Esther M.C. v. Mary L., a mother refused to provide support for her three minor children on the basis that they were “the result of an incestuous relationship with her brother,” and, as such, “it was not a voluntary decision on her part to have the minor children.” In ruling, the court did what no court has ever done when confronted with the child support obligations of a male victim of sexual assault—the court ruled that the mother may not be liable. According to the court, “[i]f the sexual intercourse which results in the birth of a child is involuntary or without actual consent, a mother may have ‘just cause’ . . . for failing or refusing to support such a child.”
The concept of paternity, male responsibility and liability are so ingrained in the system that professor Hubin notes:
Under contemporary legal standards, it has become a “settled approach” that “genetic relationships establish legal paternity regardless of whether the genetic fathers gave legal consent, or were capable of giving legal consent, to an act of sexual intercourse that resulted in the pregnancies.”
As one commentator describes:
"[W]hile courts have declared that child support obligations are dependent on voluntary parenthood, they are often reluctant to look to consent for guidance.” Despite the number of times the question of consent has arisen, every single court has answered it in the affirmative—holding that, yes, the father, minor or not, is liable.
Perhaps, actual systemic progress has been made, but I, alongside many other people, are yet to see it. Stop the abuse. Don't hold victims accountable. Give men and especially boys the right to choose.

2020.11.19 19:17 crustybendles CDC on Thanksgiving: “We’re alarmed”

https://www.cnbc.com/2020/11/19/coronavirus-cdc-urges-americans-against-traveling-for-thanksgiving-as-coronavirus-outbreak-worsens.html
👏Your👏Thanksgiving👏Isn’t👏Worth👏Killing👏Other👏People👏
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Thursday recommended Americans against traveling for Thanksgiving to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.
Dr. Henry Walke, CDC’s Covid-19 incident manager, said there is “no more important time than now for each and every American to redouble our efforts to watch our distance, wash our hands and, most importantly, wear a mask.”
“CDC is recommending against travel during the Thanksgiving period,” he said. “For Americans who decide to travel, CDC recommends doing so as safely as possible by following the same recommendations for everyday living.”
Walke added that the CDC is concerned “about the transportation hubs.” He said he’s worried people won’t be able to maintain social distancing while waiting in line, for example, to board buses and planes.
“We’re alarmed,” he said, adding that the country has seen an “exponential increase” in cases, hospitalizations and deaths recently. “One of our concerns is that as people over the holiday season get together, they may actually be bringing infections with them to that small gathering and not even know it.”
Roughly 30% to 40% of Covid-19′s spread is driven by people without symptoms, he said.
“From an individual household level, what’s at stake is basically increased chance of one of your loved ones becoming sick and then hospitalized and dying,” Walke said. “We certainly don’t want to see that happen. These times are tough. It’s been a long outbreak.”
Dr. Erin Sauber-Schatz, CDC’s community intervention and critical population task force lead, said “we are asking people to be flexible,” adding that people who are visiting at-risk people should be especially careful. The officials added that the agency will be publishing new guidance Thursday on proper precautions to take during the holiday season.
The CDC’s “strong recommendation” isn’t a requirement, the officials acknowledged. For those who ignore their advice, the CDC recommends the following:
Check the Covid-19 infection rates in areas where attendees of the dinner live. Limit the number of attendees. Host the gathering outdoors, if possible. Increase ventilation by opening windows and doors, or by placing central air and heating on continuous circulation. More information on increasing ventilation in your home can be found here. Make sure people are sitting 6 feet away, even outdoors. Wear a mask at all times, except when eating and drinking. Avoid singing or shouting, especially indoors. Avoid potluck-style gatherings. Have one person who is wearing a mask serve all the food so that multiple people are not handling the serving utensils. Use single-use options or identify one person to serve sharable items. United Airlines earlier Thursday said bookings were slowing while cancellations were on the rise as Covid-19 cases spike, echoing comments last week from Southwest Airlines. It’s bad news for airlines that were hoping for a rebound in demand around the holidays, with air travel traffic hovering at around a third of last year’s levels.
The CDC’s comments come after seven governors, two Republicans and five Democrats, published an op-ed in the Washington Post that called on Americans to “stay home this Thanksgiving.” The authors included Democratic governors Gretchen Whitmer of Michigan, Tim Walz of Minnesota, J.B. Pritzker of Illinois, Andy Beshear of Kentucky andTony Evers of Wisconsin and Republican governors Mike DeWine of Ohio and Eric Holcomb of Indiana.
“This is going to be a tough couple of months. It’s going to be a hard fight. But we are up for this challenge,” they wrote. “Let’s continue to listen to medical experts and do our part to protect the brave men and women on the front lines of this crisis. We will get through this together.”
Also earlier Thursday, a group of medical associations published an open letter, urging Americans to “celebrate responsibly, in a scaled-back fashion that limits the virus’s spread, to help reduce the risk of infecting friends, family and others you love.”
The letter is signed by the American Hospital Association, the American Medical Association and the American Nurses Association.
The CDC’s briefing Thursday is the agency’s first since August. Critics have called on the CDC and Director Dr. Robert Redfield to take a more high-profile position in the nation’s response to the pandemic as cases, hospitalizations and deaths all continue to rise.
The comments come after the nation reported more than 170,100 new cases of the virus on Wednesday, according to data compiled by Johns Hopkins University. That’s the second-highest one-day spike reported to date.
As of Wednesday, more than 79,400 people nationwide were hospitalized with Covid-19, more than at any other point during the pandemic. Hospitals in some parts of the country are overwhelmed, moving to surge capacity to provide care to as many patients as possible.
As hospitals try to handle an increasingly large load of patients, deaths caused by Covid-19 are trending upward. The CDC updated its forecast for Covid-19 deaths earlier this week to say that “newly reported COVID-19 deaths will likely increase over the next four weeks, with 7,300 to 16,000 new deaths likely to be reported in the week ending December 12, 2020.”

2020.11.19 14:24 antikarma98 Chapter 2 — You are cordially invited

Previously: Chapter 1
 
It was early afternoon, autumn in Wisconsin, which means wearing layers, gloves, and something fuzzy on your head. There was no snow on the ground but plenty in the forecast, and outside our workplace it was cloudy, windy, and too darn cold.
"Let's hear it," I said. Something was on Raoul's mind, and he'd dragged me onto the sidewalk to talk about it.
"My aunt would like you to come over for dinner."
I looked at him, expecting to hear more, but he just stood there. I said: "I'm single, Raoul, but I'm not a lesbian, and I don't do blind dates."
"It's not for a date," he said. "She has something ..." He took a breath, sighed, and started again. "She needs to talk to someone who's ... not ordinary, and I suggested you."
I again looked at him blankly. "Thank you?"
Raoul brightened, threw his hands over his head, and said, "So you'll do it?"
"No," I slowly said. "If you asked me to dinner, maybe I'd say 'maybe', because I kind of know you. But you're not asking me, are you? Your aunt is asking me — through you? Do I have that right?" He nodded. "Well, I've never met your aunt, you haven't told me anything about her, and she doesn't know anything about me — except I guess you've told her that I'm not ordinary. I don't even know what that means. Seriously, Raoul, as you kids say, W. T. F.?"
"I guess it sounds strange, but —"
"Yeah, it sounds strange, but that's OK because I'm 'not ordinary'." I laughed sarcastically, but inwardly second-guessed that maybe I was being a little too blunt? 'A little too Tina,' as my ex used to say.
Again I waited for Raoul to say something more, and again he didn't, so I said, "Meeting some stranger, and I don't know why I'm meeting her, and it's a meet-and-greet-and-eat? She's going to try selling me Amway."
"She's not selling anything," he said.
"Well, could you tell me why I'm invited to dinner with your aunt?"
Raoul said, "She says she wants to show you something." I waited, and maybe sighed. "I don't know what," he added. He looked like he hadn't brought many words with him, and his supply had run out.
"I like you, Raoul," I said, "but sometimes you're kinda not so ordinary yourself. Tell your aunt I said thanks but no thanks. I'd be awkward and uncomfortable, and maybe afraid." For six months I'd worked with this boy, and he was all right but this conversation was annoying me, and it was cold outside, and I was getting grumpy. "Let's go back inside."
We walked into the building, turned down the hall toward our desks, and Raoul said, "Guess I blew it, didn't I?"
"Well, not quite," I said, "but you're close." Then we went our separate ways, back to our cubicles. In my cubby I sat down, logged in, and thought for a few moments before writing an email to Raoul:
"Try again. Tell me more about your aunt and this second-hand invitation to dinner. Make it sound like fun instead of awful, and maybe I'll consider it. Don't use our company email. Reply to me at [email protected]."
♦ ♦ ♦
Gmail is blocked at work, so I couldn't read Raoul's reply until I'd come home, and even then I was in no hurry. I ate dinner first, and maybe the microwaved mac-and-cheese brightened my disposition. His email said:
sorry about this afternoon, i got flustered but when i said you're "not ordinary" i meant in a good way. ordinary is average and you're better than that!
Nice recovery, kiddo.
so lemme try again: you are cordially invited to dinner at my aunt's house. she wants to show you something, but i can't tell you what it is, because idk, she wouldn't tell me.
she only wants to meet you and show you something. it's important to her and nothing weird afaik.
i'll be there 2. i live with my aunt. she'll make dinner and she's a good cook. and i'm supposed to ask if you don't eat meat or if there's any cuisine you don't like. you can pick any night, but she says it has to be soon.
so — will you please come to dinner with me and my aunt?
I replied,
Raoul, that is the second weirdest invitation I've ever received.
I spend most of my free time alone, because I'm the only person I know who never gets on my nerves. I'll maybe — maybe — make an exception for your aunt, but first a few questions:
Why me? How did I somehow win the lottery to be invited to dinner with your aunt and be shown this super-secret something?
Has your aunt ever been convicted of a felony, and does she have any history of mental illness? Also, I don't know you that well, so please answer that same question about yourself.
What's your aunt's name? I'm going to Google her.
Also, if I agree to this, will it be just you and me and your crazy aunt for dinner — three people, no Amway, and nothing else unexpected?
If I say yes, which I'm not, is it formal attire, or casual, and am I supposed to bring a dessert?
And the most obvious question: If you live with your aunt, doesn't that get awkward when you bring home a girlfriend?
Twenty minutes later, Raoul replied:
that's a lot of questions, but ok here goes:
aunt agnes told me she needs someone who is, her words, "weird but reliable." She says she knows plenty of weird people but they're not reliable, and she knows a few reliable people but they're not weird, so she asked me if there's anyone I knew who's both. You are the only person who came to mind :) but same as "not ordinary" IT'S A COMPLIMENT, srsly.
convicted of a crime? yes, definitely. she went to prison for dealing, and there may have been other crimes but she doesn't talk about it, so that's all I know for sure. she's not dangerous tho, if that's your worry.
a history of mental illness? i've never asked, but yes is my guess. in the family we say she's 'eccentric'. she talks to herself and she doesn't trust the government and tbh, sometimes she says things and i don't know what she's talking about. so yeah, she's slightly crazy but she's harmless and i love her and she's a sweet lady and hello? she's my aunt. if you meet her you might like her.
as for me, no mental illness, no felonies, i've never been arrested or even got a ticket. i'm very boring.
her name is agnes miranda jackson. don't tell her i told you 'miranda' cuz she hates her middle name.
the invitation is dinner for three, just you and aunt agnes and me. it's always casual, it's not a trap, and you don't have to bring dessert but i love cheesecake.
and living with my aunt, i think it would be ok if i brought home a girl, but we've never talked about it and it's never happened. embarrassing!
I read it, and then Googled Raoul's aunt, with and without her middle name, but I didn't find much. Maybe prison records aren't public, or aren't on-line. I didn't do a search on Raoul, because the kid is OK and he's entitled to his privacy. I read his email a second time, lingering on the part where he said, sure she's crazy, "slightly."
I stood up and looked out the window for a while. Then I bundled up and walked outside where I'd been looking, and watched my breath in the frosty air. When it started snowing I came inside, and read Raoul's email a third time. And then I wrote the email that changed everything.
Raoul,
I might regret this, but tell your aunt I said yes.
You said I could pick any night, so make it Friday at six o'clock. Please confirm, and send the address. I'm not vegetarian, I'm allergic to shellfish, I'll bring cheesecake, and I'm not totally comfortable with this, so no surprises, OK?
I read what I'd written, and yelled at myself inside my head.
What are you thinking, girl?
What I was thinking is that I was fifty years old, fifty pounds overweight, doing data entry in an office, and twice a month I went bowling, and that's all I had going on. If Raoul's aunt turned out to be a chainsaw-murderer who chopped me into pieces and plopped me into the slow-cooker, well, that would be more interesting than whatever was on Netflix.
'Send'.
 
What the heck is this? It's the second chapter of a novel I'm working on. Again, your comments are requested, and never required to be positive or even polite. I'd especially like to know if any or all of it is unclear or uninteresting. Hit me as hard as you'd like.
 
Next:  My dinner with Agnes

"You're going to play gotcha questions with me?" - Sen. Cory Gardner (R-CO), asked if he thought Joe Biden won the election

Don't Wayne On My Parade

Eleven days after the election ended in decisive victory for Joe Biden, Republicans’ continued performance of uncertainty about the outcome is as appalling and dangerous as it is unrelentingly embarrassing.
Republicans might be blowing up democracy in slow-motion, but at least most of them aren’t pretending to agonize over it.
Each of Trump’s far-fetched coup maneuvers has flopped, but way too many Republicans have been happy to give them a whirl, and there’s no reason to think they wouldn’t try again in an election with closer margins. Whatever surreal elements of this year we eventually shove down the memory hole for our collective sanity, that fact can’t be one of them.

Look No Further Than The Crooked Media

Under The Radar

Donald Trump just gave the worst possible job to a former speechwriter who was fired for having white nationalist ties. The White House dismissed Darren Beattie in 2018 after it came to light that he had spoken at a white-supremacist conference, back when that was something the Trump administration could still be shamed about. Beattie then took a bunch of taxpayer money from Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL), in a violation of House rules. Following that proud interlude, Trump has welcomed Beattie back into the administration fold with an appointment to the Commission for the Preservation of America’s Heritage Abroad, which was established for the specific purpose of preserving the memory of Holocaust victims. Sixty-three days until the Inauguration.

What Else?

The official U.S. coronavirus death toll has surpassed 250,000, and more than three million people are estimated to be currently contagious. Doctors on the coronavirus task force warned Vice President Mike Pence that the U.S. could see an average of 2000 deaths a day by Christmas (Scott Atlas was presumably in the bathroom), and urged Pence or Trump to stress the importance of mitigation efforts from the White House podium.
Neither of them has any scheduled plans to do so, but White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany called statewide coronavirus restrictions “Orwellian,” if that’s helpful to anyone?
New York City’s public school system will shut down for in-person learning on Thursday (though bars, restaurants, and gyms are still open, lol), and Gov. Kim Reynolds (R-IA) has joined a growing number of Republican governors in issuing a mask mandate for the first time. All straight out of Animal Farm.
The FAA has cleared Boeing’s 737 Max to resume flights, 20 months after grounding it following two fatal crashes and roughly 100 years before we will agree to step foot on one.
Trump has ordered the rushed withdrawal of troops from Iraq and Afghanistan, though not the total withdrawal he had campaigned on. According to one administration official, this is part of the White House’s galaxy brain strategy to light more fires than Biden can put out.
Well, here’s unelected Sen. Kelly Loeffler (R-GA) violating Senate ethics rules by soliciting donations from a federal office building. Let’s send her home, yes?
Donald Trump was terrified he would be cut in half by lasers at the opening of his Atlantic City casino in 1990, while “Eye of the Tiger” was blasting over the loudspeakers. Just a nice little image to carry close to your heart.
Rockefeller Center’s bummer of a Christmas tree has been widely deemed a metaphor for 2020. The tree’s resident owl who was just minding his own business before getting dragged into midtown can confirm.

Be Smarter

One of the biggest takeaways from this election has been “Latino voters are not a monolith,” and while much of that analysis has focused on Florida, it’s just as true everywhere else. In Texas, Trump became the first GOP presidential candidate in a century to win Zapata County, which is more than 94 percent Hispanic or Latino. Dissecting the result the requires understanding the specific character of South Texas, where most Spanish-speaking residents self-identify as Tejano. Most consider themselves American above all else, wouldn’t identify as people of color, and have positions on gas and oil, guns, and abortion that are closely aligned with the Republican Party. The Trump campaign recognized and effectively targeted that specific community, and Democrats will need more than generic messaging to win it back.
