Make Olympics in Russia the gayest ever
CNN, by Frida Ghitis

Original Article

Posted By:mark34, 8/3/2013 12:41:25 PM

You don´t have to be gay or even Russian to feel the wrath of the Russian government´s homophobia. You could go to jail if you are "pro-gay," whatever that means. And that´s under just one of a growing number of hate-infused bills becoming law at a time when, as it happens, Russia is preparing to host the world in the next Winter Olympics. The perverse anti-gay legislation is inflaming an atmosphere of persistent intimidation and at times deadly violence against Russian gays and lesbians. The question now is: What should the rest of the world do?

Comments:
If the word "gay" means what it used to mean (happily excited; merry; keenly alive and exuberant; having or inducing high spirits), then I would agree that we should make the Olympics in Russia the gayest ever. But if "gay" means what it´s been corrupted to mean (homosexual), then I hope the Russians will enforce their anti-homosexual law sternly.

There are a ton of folks out there who are sick and tired of the love that dares not shut the heck up. Russia is not going to put up with any nonsense. Russia doesn´t care about western elites feelings.

Russia has never been ´gay friendly´. But when it was controlled by the communist party liberals never seemed to notice. Russia was the shining beacon of the future for progressives around the world, until they showed that communism was a colossal failure.

One of the first things Fidel Castro did when he came to power, is to put the Havana rent-boys out of circulation. The "chaperos" or "maricones" who could get away, fled to ply their trade in Caracas, Cancun or Miami.

But to the Left, the Communists could do no wrong.

So now the U.S. Government is intent on cultivating, mainstreaming and exporting homosexuality and other forms of sexual disorientation (Dept. of Justice, State Dept., even the military) while Russia is trying to curb the cultural rot.

Interesting.

Hey Ms. Frida

Please go to Sochi and act the fool. I don´t know if you know who runs that town, but I can assure you that it´s not Putin, the cops,or the Boy Scouts for that matter. And the powers-that-be there have a very low opinion of anyone who disrupts their very lucrative business activities. And they respond accordingly.

During the Olympics there will be a lot going on to keep the Russian officials very busy, and you can bet that they will simply ignore the people who arrive and start waving their rainbow colored scarfs around as long as they do not try to disrupt the show, the Russians recognize that the rainbow scarf people´s presence will be very transitory.

As #18 says, just walking around with a brightly striped scarf is not likely to get any attention from the authorities, though the wearers may think they´re being incredibly brave and daring. But if any homosexuals want to stage a kiss-in at the local Orthodox cathedral, they might want to wait until AFTER their medal events, as spending a few nights in jail is not recommended for athletes in training.

What they want is an incident and then with the weight of the U.S. Government behind them try and get some concessions from Russia. Expect to see MSM propaganda showing the kind, passive homosexuals being brutally suppressed (with none of the provocation by them shown) and all they want is to be with their true love. Expect to see it 24/7.

Homophobia is a mythical word, created by libtards, due to the inability of leftards to refute the fact that homos are defective humans.

Our planet has around 7 billion humans on it. Each and every one of us arrived here via the interaction between a male of our species and a female of our species. Not a single human has been created by the interaction between a male and another male, nor the interaction between a female and another female.

Uhhh, Frida, opposing homosexuality does not equate to hate. It´s an important distinction that the militant homosexual left-- the tiny yet loud minority within a minority-- does not want the public to make.

Uh, Frida, is this one of your "hate-infused bills"? "In Russia it is now illegal to even speak about homosexuality around minors, much less openly display gay pride. Technically the ban is against "propaganda of nontraditional sexual relations" around minors...."

Russia has a history of horrors going back many years. Stalin murdered his own people in the name of Communism. The latest piece of inane legislation - the "gay propaganda" law - is indicative of the fact that the Russians don´t respect the concept of freedom.

Questions should also be directed toward the IOC. Why did it give the winter games to Russia in the first place? Was money paid to the IOC? There´s a can of worms there waiting to be opened.

Former Iran official describes alleged
US sabotage of nuke program
FOX News, by Jonathan Hunt    Original Article
Posted By: mark34- 4/18/2014 9:23:28 PM     Post Reply
The former head of Iran´s nuclear program is laying out in detail how the U.S. and other intelligence agencies allegedly carried out a constant campaign of sabotage against his country. According to Fereydoon Abbasi, who spoke to an Iranian newspaper, the U.S. would prevent companies from sending equipment to Iran -- but would then put that kind of equipment on the black market, having ensured it would actually damage Iranian operations. He claims the U.S. would find out, via the U.N. nuclear agency, what parts Iran was trying to get and from whom, and plant everything from viruses to explosives

Iran requested on Monday a special meeting of a U.N. committee on the United States´ refusal to grant a visa to Tehran´s new U.N. ambassador appointee, but it has so far refrained from calling for any specific action, the committee´s chairman said. The United States said on Friday it would not grant a visa to Hamid Abutalebi because of his links to the 1979-1981 Tehran hostage crisis when radical Iranian students seized the U.S. Embassy and held 52 Americans hostage for 444 days. Abutalebi has said that he acted only as a translator. Iran has asked for a meeting of the U.N.

CIA and White House under pressure

A leak of the major findings of a landmark Senate inquiry into the CIA’s post-9/11 torture of terrorism detainees led, on Friday, to intensified pressure on the White House and the CIA to release the inquiry speedily and with a minimum of redactions. The classified study, prepared by the Senate select committee on intelligence, concluded that the CIA’s interrogations, secret detentions and outsourced torture sessions were “brutal, and far worse than the agency communicated to policymakers.” More suspected terrorists underwent the agency’s post-9/11 treatment, which largely lasted from 2002 to 2006, than the CIA has publicly admitted,

Despite recent tensions in relations between Israel and the United States, defense officials in the Jewish State are confident enough in the strength of the alliance to take on debt based on the expectation of future military aid. According to a Defense News report, Defense Minister Moshe Ya´alon has received government backing to purchase $2 billion in Pentagon-approved arms and aircraft, including the troubled V-22 tilt-rotor Osprey. After months of internal dialogue in the Finance Ministry and negotiations with the Pentagon´s defense contractors, Israel will enter into a US-approved deferred payment plan (DPP) to purchase the military

"Clearly, the US leadership is really annoyed, and cannot come to terms with the new situation, which has arisen in large part due to the deliberate line taken by the US and its allies in Europe to prepare anti-Russian forces to take power in Ukraine," said deputy foreign minister, Sergei Ryabkov, in an interview with Interfax.

Thousands of Ugandans led by President Yoweri Museveni held a rally Monday celebrating tough new anti-gay laws, praising the bill despite international criticism and donor aid cuts. "Thank you for saving the future of Uganda," read signs held by the demonstrators, who marched through the streets of the capital Kampala. Last month, Museveni signed a bill that calls for "repeat homosexuals" to be jailed for life and requires people to report homosexuals. (Snip) Other demonstrators, who sang a song called "bye-bye homosexuality", appealed directly to US President Barack Obama. "Obama, we want trade, not homosexuality," one sign read.

Journalists spotted that ministers at a cabinet meeting were no longer using Apple tablets, and minister Nikolai Nikiforov confirmed the changeover "took place not so long ago". He said the ministers´ new Samsungs were "specially protected devices that can be used to work with confidential information." "Some of the information at government meetings is confidential in nature and these devices fully meet these demands and have gone through the strictest system of certification," he said.

Hawaii law letting police have sex

In movies and television shows, undercover cops running prostitution stings bring out the handcuffs as soon as there’s an agreement to exchange money for a sex act. They don’t usually wait to receive the service. But police in Hawaii have said they need the flexibility to have sex with prostitutes and have fought to save a state law that has allowed them to do so. Civil rights groups and victims’ advocates called that position ridiculous. “We are near certain that no other state in the nation allows for this type of ‘interpersonal’ and highly problematic ‘investigative tool’ to facilitate prostitution arrests,” the Pacific

The vote was widely condemned by Western leaders, who planned to move swiftly to punish Russia with economic sanctions. As the votes were counted, a jubilant crowd gathered around a statue of Vladimir Lenin in the center of Simferopol to celebrate with song and dance.

The Socialist Left party politicians Baard Vegar Solhjell, a former environment minister, and Snorre Valen said the public debate and policy changes in the wake of Snowden´s whistleblowing had "contributed to a more stable and peaceful world order".

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House.

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him." For the 43-year-old Republican, the Reagan name illuminates his political life´s

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

Conservative columnist Ann Coulter — who used her talk show platform in the last presidential election cycle to campaign hard for former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney — has taken up the mantra once again, calling on Republicans to give the failed White House bidder another shot in 2016. She made the suggestion during a discussion on Sean Hannity’s radio show while speaking of her new book, “Never Trust a Liberal Over 3-Especially a Republican.” Ms. Coulter also addressed the question of Mr. Romney’s shortcomings by saying that his 2012 loss wasn’t entirely his fault. “I think too much blame, not only in this

Prominent Washington correspondents are accusing President Obama and his aides of knowingly stretching the truth on issues like the so-called women´s pay gap just to create controversy and keep issues -- and the president -- relevant. Washington Post columnist Ruth Marcus kicked off the attack last week when she blasted as “demagoguery” the administration´s tactics during the pay gap debate. “The level of hyperbole -- actually, of demagoguery -- that Democrats have engaged in here is revolting,” she wrote. CBS White House Correspondent Major Garrett then weighed in this week in his National Journal

The Clintons had a busy night of celebrations after Chelsea announced she and husband Marc Mezvinsky are expecting a baby. Bill joined “House of Cards” star Kevin Spacey at the Revlon Rainforest Fund Benefit Concert at Carnegie Hall Thursday, joking of Spacey’s Machiavellian character, “When I was president people accused me of murder all the time, made a show of investigating. Spacey’s president for 15 minutes and he gets away with murder.” Spacey, who sang during the event with Sting, Stephen Stills and James Taylor, also showed off his Johnny Carson impression, taking a swipe at the coverage of Flight

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid on Friday stood by his statement regarding embattled Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy, saying on KSNV’s What’s Your Point?, “If anyone thinks by any figment of their imagination that what happened up there last week was just people rallying to somebody that was oppressed, 600 people came in armed. They had practiced. They had maneuvered.” Reid continued, “They knew what they were doing. They set up snipers in strategic locations with sniper rifles. They had assault weapons. They had automatic weapons. And they boasted about the fact that they put women and children, in fact one
