"I was wrong. I swiped left for days on opposite-sex couples preying on bisexual women and encountered numerous profiles for — you guessed it — straight, cisgender men. I would estimate that at least half of the profiles shown to me by the app were either couples or men: a shockingly high amount."

What is a cisgender man?

“‘It was an ongoing process,’ she insists, ‘that began when he lost the presidential campaign.’ Okay, then: a process of what? Aging, dementia, galloping halitosis; loss of faith, relevance, marbles”

He sounds like a proper wanker. I only knew him through his Sept 11 days.

"A Canadian actor said she was unwittingly hired to protest in support of a Huawei executive fighting extradition to the US.

Julia Hackstaff told local media she thought she had taken a job as a background extra.

Instead she found herself holding a placard outside the Vancouver courthouse where telecoms executive Meng Wanzhou was to appear for an extradition hearing."

I guess this is cross charged to the Huawei PR budget.

“Fifty per cent of the UK's 10-year-olds owned a smartphone in 2019, according to a report by media regulator Ofcom.

The amount of young phone owners doubled between the ages of nine and 10, which Ofcom dubbed ’the age of digital independence’.

In addition, 24% of 3 and 4-year-olds had their own tablet, and 15% of them were allowed to take it to bed.”

"Mrs Winston Wolkoff says one of Mrs Trump's often repeated lines is 'pleasing anyone else is not my priority', and later writes: 'Ever the pragmatist, she reasoned that since she had no control over people's thoughts, why should she care what they believed.'"

She doesn't care what other people think. Her husband only cares about what he thinks of himself and what others think of him. It's like the EQ match made in heaven.

"A top-ranking official in Hungary’s ultraconservative government has stepped down after being caught fleeing an alleged gay sex party."

I had to read the first part twice to understand a married man in an anti gay party was caught in an orgy...gay orgy.

Interesting, on the RAF test for spatial awareness: ''Candidates from a ‘White Gypsy or Irish Traveller’ background were among the highest scorers with an average of 59.8. ''


The Royal Air Force has admitted for the first time that black applicants are significantly more likely to fail its selection tests than their white counterparts.

Documents seen by The Telegraph reveal that white and Asian applicants to the RAF consistently score up to 36 per cent higher than black candidates on tests of technical skills and spatial awareness.

Defence chiefs have insisted the Airwoman and Airmen’s Selection Tests (ASTs) had been proven not to be biased against any ethnicity, and blamed the disparity on “underlying inequality” in education.

“It is also important to recognise there can actually be true differences between groups,” the RAF added in a statement.

The figures appear within documents released under freedom of information laws after the Ministry of Defence refused to publish them for five months.

Their disclosure will raise significant questions about the potential barriers to entry facing young black people determined to join the UK’s armed forces. The RAF in particular has already accepted that it has a diversity problem, with fewer than three per cent of regulars identifying as BAME (black and minority ethnic).

A senior source in the RAF said “no definitive answer” had been discovered as to why some ethnic groups outperform others on the aptitude tests. Defence chiefs have hired psychologists to examine the ASTs for signs of racial bias, the source added, but no evidence has ever been found that the exams taken by thousands of candidates every year are unfairly skewed toward any ethnicity.

“The ASTs are very good at working out whether someone is right for the RAF. No more, no less,” the senior source told The Telegraph.

“This is the military, and we need our people to be the best. If we can’t find evidence that the tests are unfair, then what can we do?”


The documents show the results for the four main ASTs taken between 2015 and 2020, broken down by self-declared ethnicity. Each table reveals a significant and consistent gap between the marks scored by black applicants, and those achieved by their white and Asian counterparts.

The numbers are scores rather than percentages, and the individual pass mark is decided by the type of role applied for.

On the ‘BIS’ test, designed to test spatial awareness, including that of potential RAF gunners, candidates from a Black African background scored a five-year average of 40.6.

However, White British applicants scored a five-year average of 55.4, more than 36 per cent higher. Those declaring a Mixed Black Caribbean and White ethnicity scored 51.4, candidates of Asian Indian ethnicity scored 50.1, while applicants from a Chinese background scored highest, with 60.1.

The pattern is repeated in the three other main aptitude tests, including the ‘DIS’ test which examines suitability for “trades technical in nature”.

Applicants from a Black African background scored a five-year average of 40.7 on the exam, while those of Black Carribean ethnicity achieved 44.8. White British candidates, meanwhile, scored much higher with 56.4. Candidates from a ‘White Gypsy or Irish Traveller’ background were among the highest scorers with an average of 59.8.

The documents also reveal how few candidates from minority ethnic groups are applying to join the RAF, although the numbers are slightly increasing.

Last year, only 53 people from a Black Caribbean background and 141 people identifying as Black African applied to join the air force, compared to 7,790 candidates declaring as white British.

A RAF spokesman suggested that the disparity in test results between groups may partly be explained by the comparatively small sample size.

“It is possible that the ethnic minority candidate groups may not be a fair representation of the ethnic minority general population,” the spokesman added.

A spokesman for the RAF BAME Network said there was “more to be done” to break down “potential barriers to recruitment” faced by young black people wanting to join the RAF.

An RAF spokesman said: “The RAF has a proud history of offering opportunities to anyone who has the ability to serve, no matter their background. Aptitude tests are designed to assess a candidates’ potential for the job they are applying for, with professional analysis confirming they are not biased.

“These tests are just one tool used to assess a candidate’s suitability for a career in the RAF. As the percentage of BAME personnel in the RAF continues to increase, we are actively encouraging more individuals from BAME backgrounds to consider a career with us."

Greta Thunberg has no plans to attend COP26​

I read that, something to do with vaccine the roll out being unequitable and until that is fixed she'll be giving it a miss.

That was the EU's strategy let's wait to we get vaccines for everyone and vaccinate all of the EU simultaneously to show solidarity. The Brits were invited to join and decided along with using the NHS procurement organisation it would be a total procurement and roll out disaster and gave both options a miss. There's a lesson there, that Greta's controllers have missed.

arny, if you in any way thought that the BLM movement had a single thing to do with marxism, you're an even bigger dope than you pretend to be.
It's the old adage: socialism for the masses, but not for me.

Meanwhile, back in Blighty the noose is tightening on public sector union man and big Corbyn sponsor, Len McCluskey, all of his bent cronies are being taken out one by one.

Five euros per grenade seems very cheap. Surely that cannot be correct there’s little profit in selling them.

Black Lives Matter co-founder describes herself as ‘trained Marxist’

“We are trained Marxists. We are super-versed on, sort of, ideological theories. And I think that what we really tried to do is build a movement that could be utilized by many, many black folk,” Cullors added in the interview with Jared Ball of The Real News Network.

It's obvious to anyone that's studied the subject matter that BLM is Marxisant. However, that wasn't Rambo's most egregious crime, that's, that he conveniently ignored your point about the hustle.

Michael Moore made his debut with a documentary on the working man and the oppressive corporation who abuses him. He lives in a mansion.

You guys are really struggling with this one. I’m sure there’s a Jordan Peterson interview that will help you understand the concept of grifters.

two parts are important here, one less so. on how she afforded that house:

The activist, who married Janaya Khan, a gender non-conforming leader of BLM in Toronto, in 2016, has been in high demand since her 2018 memoir became a best-seller.
In October she publishes her follow-up, Abolition.
She also works as a professor of Social and Environmental Arts at Arizona's Prescott College, and in October 2020 signed a sweeping deal with Warner Bros.
The arrangement is described as a multi-year and wide-ranging agreement to develop and produce original programming across all platforms, including broadcast, cable and streaming.

and the important part on the garbage ass BLM "charity"

Local organizers told Politico they saw little or no money and were forced to crowdfund to stay afloat. Some organizers say they were barely able to afford gas or housing.
BLM's Global Network filters its donations through a group called Thousand Currents, Insider reported in June - which made it even more complicated to trace the cash.
Solome Lemma, executive director of Thousand Currents, told the site: 'Donations to BLM are restricted donations to support the activities of BLM.'
Last month AP reported that BLM brought in $90 million in donations last year, leading to Michael Brown Sr. to join other Black Lives Matter activists demanding $20 million from the Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation.
Brown, whose son Michael Brown Jr., was killed by police in Ferguson, Missouri, in 2014 says he and his advocacy group have been short-changed by the larger BLM organization.
'Why hasn't my family's foundation received any assistance from the movement?' Brown asked in a statement.

As you know, when it comes to race hustling, some black minorities are suffering more than others i.e. American billionaires and millionaires, wives of ex-presidents, footballers who never worked for years and went straight to Disney, MM who anyone seeing her walking down the street wouldn't know what race she was. They are more sensitive than normal black folk, who don't feel the hurt and discrimination in the same way.

Meanwhile, working class blacks in Chicago or Brixton don't get a look in. I wager in both places. Harry would have found a better wife and one that would have been better for delivering MLK's dream.

I'm married to a black woman and she thinks BLM is a crock of bullshit. I believe her 100%.

Booker T Washington figured this out a century ago.
