Iran Raping Protesters in their Dungeons

Sunday, January 31, 2010

This article is rather disturbing in that it relates some of the torture, brutal rape and murder that many peaceful protesters in Iran have undergone in their government's dungeons for the simple crime of speaking out against a fraudulent election. However, I feel very strongly that all Americans need to be aware of what is going on so that our government will change its turn-a-blind-eye policies with Iran (and other brutal dictatorships) and help bring these people basic humans rights. Because it is so disturbing, I will only quote some of it and give a link to the whole article at the end.

Under the barbaric rule of the mullahcracy in Iran, sexual assaults have become instruments of policy for extracting false confessions, satisfying the boundless sadism and sexual perversions of the jailers, punishing the helpless victim, and leaving him/her with a sense of dehumanization.
This shockingly repugnant form of violating the human person has regrettably become widespread in the Islamic Republic of Iran's prisons, particularly in dealing with the young men and women arrested for the "crime" of peacefully demonstrating in the streets to demand accountability from the government for a raft of violations it has committed and continues to commit.

For the past 32 years, the Islamic Republic of Iran has been denying and violating a long-suffering people all of its human rights. They are guilty of beating, torturing, raping, and killing prisoners of conscience -- political, religious, intellectuals, artists, and others.

Women, chronically oppressed and disenfranchised from their basic human and family rights, have been most viciously treated by the Islamic system, its hired plainclothes, and the Basij members. To maintain its suffocating rule, the regime metes out punishments reminiscent of the worst in the annals of human history. Amputation of hands and feet, blinding, hanging, and stoning the victim after the quick formality of a trial in kangaroo courts without legal representation is commonplace under the terror rule of the Islamists.

The Islamic Republic has been violating all norms of international human rights, including very harsh penalties such as beatings for even "victimless crimes" like fornication, public expression, homosexuality, apostasy, and poor hijab (covering of the women).

The Islamic Republic's infamous record is replete with instances of child execution, restrictions on freedom of speech and the press, imprisonment of journalists, discrimination against women in general, and persecution of religious minorities (with a particular systematic program of genocide against the Baha'is and their religion). The regime has ruled over a peaceful people with an iron fist while committing the most heinous crimes against humanity.

After enduring more than three decades of the Islamic regime, the great majority of the Iranian people decided to cast their ballots in the hope of effecting change in the system. The Islamic government, completely accustomed to doing whatever it wishes and ignoring the people, stole the election and declared incumbent Mahmoud Ahmadinejad the winner. The blatant violation of this basic right to vote and choose the official infuriated the long-suffering masses, who poured into the streets by the millions, demanding that their votes be honored. The response of the regime was to beat the demonstrators, arresting many and subjecting a great number to a raft of harsh treatments in prisons.

In a letter addressed to Mr. Rafsanjani in his capacity as head of the Assembly of Experts, Mr. Karroubi, a former speaker of the Majlis (Parliament), demanded an immediate investigation into the reports that a number of detainees had been raped during the illegal incarceration.

Mr. Karroubi wrote, "Some of those arrested [as a result] of the unrest claim that detained girls have been sexually assaulted with ... brutality."
The article then goes on to describe several specific young men and women who were tortured, cruelly and repeatedly raped and/or murdered by the Islamic theocratic barbarians. Read the rest of it here if you have the stomach: "The Islamic Republic of Torture, Rape, and Murder" By Amil Imani

NYT: Gays Will Bring Infidelity To Marriage

Friday, January 29, 2010

The liberal New York Times is excited about a new study from the liberal San Francisco State University that finds 50% of gay male couples have sexual relationships outside their union with approval of their partner.

NYT is excited that gays will "rewrite the traditional rules of matrimony," because polygamory "might point the way for the survival of the institution."

I would venture to guess that lesbian couples take fidelity much more seriously. However, I would also guess that maybe 1 in 1000 real married couples would find infidelity acceptable. Furthermore, most gay couples that actually stay together more than 5 years don't even want to ram gay marriage down anyone's throat!

So much for the argument "what about all the infidelity and divorce in traditional marriage!"

SF Walk for Life 2010

Wednesday, January 27, 2010

This was the second year that Cura te Ipsum and I attended the Walk for Life. Once again, despite the rain, it was a record-breaking year with attendance estimated at 35,000 pro-lifers. (There were many less anti's this year...I guess they don't like the rain.)

Deadliness of Homosexuality

Tuesday, January 26, 2010

I recently read a letter on Beetle Blogger from a lesbian woman, Marci, who has made the choice to have and raise a son with her partner. She wants to be a good mom and has no regrets about her decision. Upon reading I first hoped that Marci and her partner would still be together in a few years and that they would practice sexual exclusivity in their partnership, since these are statistically less likely in the LGBT relationships.

I then wondered where her son would find a good father figure to emulate his male qualities after, since genetically he will be expressing those sooner or later and he’ll need that bond and example. I was further perplexed by how Marci and her partner would most effectively raise a male with the disadvantage that neither parent ever experienced life as one.

Still, my greatest concern about Marci’s choice is, given that her son is more likely to grow up homosexual, she has consequently increased the likelihood that he will end up with serious disease and/or early death.

Joy of motherhood aside, let’s face the facts, Marci. What you do in your own home is your business, but when you’re promoting homosexuality and raising sons that are more likely to become homosexual, people like you need to start taking some responsibility for the following:

  • GLB’s in high school engage in twice the mean number of risk behaviors including an increased use of cocaine and other illegal drugs, use of tobacco, marijuana, and cocaine before age 13, sexual intercourse before age 13, and sexual intercourse with four or more partners
  • 30% of all 20-year-old homosexually-active men will be HIV positive or dead of AIDS by the time they are 30
  • In L.A. and five other major cities, 1 in 10 young homosexual or bisexual men is infected with HIV. Among homosexual African Americans, the HIV infection rate is 1 out of 3
  • 20-year-old gay men have a 50% chance of becoming HIV positive by age 55
  • In Canada, life expectancy at age 20 for gay and bisexual men is 8 to 20 years less than for all men. If the same pattern of mortality were to continue, estimates are that nearly half of gay and bisexual men currently aged 20 years will not reach their 65th birthday. Under even the most liberal assumptions, gay and bisexual men in this urban center are now experiencing a life expectancy similar to that experienced by all men in Canada in the year 1871. Compare this to tobacco smoking which decreases life span by 13.5 years
  • The rate of new HIV infections among men who have sex with men is 9x higher than among women and heterosexual men
  • The risk of contracting AIDS from a single act of unprotected heterosexual intercourse is 1 in 715,000 The risk of contracting AIDS from a single act of unprotected homosexual intercourse is 1 in 165
  • The bacteria contacted during anal intercourse includes Shigella, Entamoeba, Giardia (causes chronic diarrhea), the bacteria that causes hepatitis A (deadly liver damage), and hepatitis B
  • Dramatic increase in anal cancer among homosexual men. This increase is traced to HPV, a sexually transmitted virus that is found in almost all HIV positive homosexual men
  • Syphilis cases in the western U.S. soared 64.3 percent between 2001 and 2002 and climbed 54.5% in the northeast. (This is primarily in groups of gay and bisexual men, as the vast majority of the US is not seeing any syphilis at all.)
  • More than 3/4 of the homosexual men studied were unaware they were carrying HIV, the virus that causes AIDS. 90% of homosexual black men, ages 15-29, which have the virus, did not know they had the virus until researchers told them. The figure for Hispanic homosexual men is 70% and for white homosexual men, 60%
  • In 4 American cities 11% of HIV positive men did not disclose their serostatus to their primary sex partner and 66% did not disclose their status to a non-primary sex partner. In addition, of HIV positive men with one or more non-primary partners, 16% of those who did not disclose their serostatus reported inconsistent condom use during anal intercourse with these partners.
  • 32% percent of homosexual men and women abuse alcohol, as compared with 7% (10% of men and 5% of women) in the general population.
  • 36% of homosexuals engaging in unprotected oral, anal or vaginal sex failed to disclose that they were HIV positive to casual sex partners and 68% did not know the HIV serostatus of their partners.

It would have taken pages to cite the studies for all of these, but for those who want to see them and many more like it, visit here.

An Affront To Democracy

Sunday, January 24, 2010

I keep my articles quick and clean. I assume that people like Personal Failure know a priori all the nuances involved. Let me clear up some confusion about my last post.

The benighted gay marriage groups that attack Proposition 8 are fascists. Radicals have vandalized Mormon church buildings. They have blacklisted people and made them lose their jobs and their house simply because they voted a certain way. This isn't some media gimmick or NYU mock trial case, this is friends and family of mine. I have seen it first hand and it ruins lives.

The gay marriage debate is one can of worms that we don't even need to get into yet. Let's just look at the blacklists, pro-gay marriage liberals are ruining lives of people who vote a certain way. And even though proposition 8 was voted in fair and square, and approved by the Supreme Court, even still the liberals are fighting it in the courts. It will get thrown out by a liberal judge. We all know this is inevitable. The democratic process is to use a majority vote, yet this has not once succeeded for the gay liberals. When California recognizes gay marriage, it will be because liberals successfully overthrew the voters and the state's Supreme Court.

This is clearly the intent of the McCain ad. We see McCain with tape over her mouth and the words "No H8". Their message to people who support traditional marriage is "you are hate-filled bigots who ought to keep your mouths shut."

Voter intimidation. Usurping democratically voted laws. This is fascism and an affront on free speech.

Liberals like Personal Failure are so compassionate about anti-American terrorists who blow up planes; they make sure they get civilian trials and warm snacks in bed during their detention inside American prisons. But God forbid someone tell a homosexual couple that the government won't call their civil union a marriage! Why, such bigots should be round up and shot!

These are the very groups that Republican John McCain's family is promoting. John McCain is the Jimmy Carter of the GOP. He is the epic fail. He lost spectacularly against a presidential candidate that should have had less of a chance than John Edwards.

Does that clear things up, PF? I know, my free speech is unpopular and clashes with everything our society says is right. That makes me kinda a rebel, doesn't it?

McCain Family Appears In Anti-Marriage Ads

Thursday, January 21, 2010

Cindy and Meghan McCain have been published in ads supporting the overthrow of California's democratically approved proposition 8. Not only is this an affront on traditional marriage, but on the very foundations of democracy and free speech.

John McCain, meanwhile, appeared on TV beside Scott Brown, parading like a conservative.

Update: The McCains' participation in these ads was an affront on free speech because the ad condemned condemned Prop 8 and its supporters as being filled with hate. Not, "we disagree with you, we think it should be this way," but "you all are hate-filled bigots who ought to keep your mouths shut." This is just another attempt by SSMers to smear their opponents into being shamed into silence and submission. Whether knowingly or not, the McCains allowed their images to be part of the same campaign that released Prop 8 supporters personal addresses and phone numbers, endangering their lives; attempted and succeeded in some cases to take away their livelihoods; publicly ridiculed supporters of traditional families in public schools, national television and movies, and in the halls of California's taxpayer-owned government facilities, telling kids that their parents are bigots and inciting them to rebel against them.

The SSM campaign has taken the stance that anyone who does not approve of same-sex marriages deserves the highest condemnation, hurt and endangerment that can be reasonably given. It is undemocratic to act that way. You may not agree with what your neighbor says, but you must not harm him/her because of your opposition to it. That is bullying and no one likes a bully. That is why SSM is miserably failing whenever it comes up to a popular vote (as laws are supposed to in democratic societies). It bothers me a lot to see McCain's daughter and Wife participating in such undemocratic bully tactics--attempting to get their way by shaming others into submission--but I know that such a tactic will always fail in America. The best thing traditional marriage supporters have going for them is that they are decent, respectable people that only want what is good for their and everyone else's children. We are not asking anyone to change their definition of anything, to give up anything, or to be who they are not. We only want marriage to remain what it is and always has been, rather than destroy one of the most important institutions on earth to please a few perverts and troubled individuals.

Oakland Mayer Fires Theatre Board Member For Supporting Marriage

Mormon temple president Lorenzo Hoopes will not continue on the board that oversees Oakland’s historic Paramount Theatre because he contributed to Proposition 8. Hoopes has sat on the board for more than 30 years. The liberal city council and mayor have vowed to purge the city of all gay marriage opponents.

Democrat Mayor Ron Dellums's spokesman defended the blacklisting, saying, "The community is asking us to reconsider, and that is what we are going to do."

West Coast Walk for Life This Saturday

Sunday, January 17, 2010

Saturday, June 23rd 2010 will be the 6th annual West Coast Walk for Life held in San Francisco from Justin Herman Plaza in the financial district to Marina Greens by the Presidio.

Cura Te Ipsum and I participated in the walk for our first time last year, and it was literally a life-changing event for both of us. (Read my comments from last year). It was a safe, family-friendly event that allowed us to connect with tens of thousands of other people from all over of all ages, cultures and religions. This year they are again expecting more than 30,000 people to attend.

UPDATE: 18,000 march for life in Paris, France today, carrying banners like "Honneur aux Meres!" (Praise Motherhood!), "Europe, defends la vie!" (Europe, defend life!), "L'enfant concu est quel'qun!" (The concieved child is a person!), "Sauve les bebes a naitres!" (Save the babies to e born!"

Clinton: Helping Haiti, Voting for Coakley 'Two sides of the same coin'

Update! Watch the horror on Obama's face.

The battle to keep Republicans out of Massachusetts is getting dirtier and dirtier

Washington Examiner- "Somebody asked me today, 'Well, why are you going to this political rally?... And I said to them, this is just two sides of the same coin. You have to bear with me. I have friends killed there. I've worked with this country for 35 years. Hillary and I had a good cry on the phone because the cathedral that we sat in the pews 35 years ago was totally destroyed.

But it reminds you all over again of the importance of good governance. Now, good governance would not have prevented this earthquake, but if we'd had decades of it, there would have been different buildings there, and less deforestation, and a sustainable economy. I mean, the whole thing would be different. So what I want to say to you is, I'm here today because I believe in Martha Coakley."

Yes, Bill Clinton skipped out of helping Haiti so he could prevent a Republican from causing a massive earthquake that kills thousands of people.

Brown will file a criminal complaint for Democrats' ad that claims he will deny rape victims access to hospitals. Brown filed charges against the SEIU in December.

Massachusetts Miracle

Friday, January 15, 2010


In just 4 days the people of Massachusetts will be voting on the senate seat vacated when Ted Kennedy died. Against "conventional wisdom" for a state as liberal as Massachusetts, the Conservative candidate, Scott Brow, is neck-in-neck in the polls, with one latest poll even showing Brow leading by 4 points.

Massachusetts was the scene of many events during America's fight against England's tyranny, including the infamous "shot heard 'round the world" on April 19, 1775 that commenced the military conflict. If Conservatives manage to beat out the Democrats' hand-picked replacement for Kennedy, it will provide the one vote that will allow senate conservatives to stop the draconian Healthcare bill, Cap-in-Trade, future "porkulous" bills, talk radio censorship and most other Statist legislation Obama-Reid-Pelosi are concocting in their power-hungry minds. This one senate race could be "the shot heard 'round the world" that will commence the utter defeat of the liberal ideology that is currently threatening the future of our nation.

This is definitely possible! Massachusetts elected a conservative as Governor not too long ago, and polls are showing that more and more independents in that state are jumping ship because of Democrats' current "tax-and-spend-and-print-more-money" policies in Washington. If you live in Massachusetts, educate yourself on these candidates and do the right thing! If you know anyone registered in Massachusetts, talk to them and make sure they get out and vote! If you don't have any connections, then join me in praying that tyranny will be overthrown and freedom will again prevail.

God brought about a miracle in 1783 when 12 small, freedom-loving colonies beat the most powerful nation in the world and won their chance at freedom. God granted that miracle because Americans were good and were willing to fight and sacrifice for it. In each of those colonies, preachers taught the virtues of hard-work and freedom from the pulpit and common, everyday citizens got down on their knees to pray to God and then rose and worked to make it happen. That is the secret formula that has made America the greatest nation on earth today, and that is the formula that will save it from its current calamity.

Leaked Iran Scandals Erode Theocracy

Saturday, January 9, 2010

New York Times has an interesting summary of the recent leaks in Iran's government and what it means for Iran's future.

There was the leaked memo that proves Iran has been working on a nuclear bomb, and more recently revelations that China is giving Iran nuclear weapons parts (though the media has covered up that one pretty well).

But other leaks reveal that more Iranians and people high up in the government are rebelling:

  • Details of meetings between intelligence officials and the Revolutionary Guard

  • A memo from the government ordering the national media how to cover the protests

  • A memo revealing jailed prostitues must participate in pro-government rallies in return for cut sentences

Much like East Germany before the fall, the government is putting tighter restrictions on unpatriotic activities and talking to foreign media. Then there's the economy, the coal mine deaths, the oil fires... and collaboration with foreign nations like China and Russia. These will be the new evil empires from which they will rebel.

Obama: Unemployment is headed in the right direction

Friday, January 8, 2010

The right direction...

10% and climbing...

The liberal Associated Press pointed out unemployment is actually much higher because more people have stayed unemployed for a while and no longer count. Oh, but don't worry! Obama has more green jobs stimulus on the way!

The system worked.

"The System Worked"

Mayo Clinic to Stop Treating Medicare Patients

Saturday, January 2, 2010

This is the kind of problem that government healthcare has created for itself and our elderly must pay the price.

From Bloomberg

The Mayo Clinic, praised by President Barack Obama as a national model for efficient health care, will stop accepting Medicare patients as of tomorrow at one of its primary-care clinics in Arizona, saying the U.S. government pays too little.

More than 3,000 patients eligible for Medicare, the government’s largest health-insurance program, will be forced to pay cash if they want to continue seeing their doctors at a Mayo family clinic in Glendale, northwest of Phoenix [...]

Obama in June cited the nonprofit Rochester, Minnesota-based Mayo Clinic and the Cleveland Clinic in Ohio for offering “the highest quality care at costs well below the national norm.” Mayo’s move to drop Medicare patients may be copied by family doctors, some of whom have stopped accepting new patients from the program, said Lori Heim, president of the American Academy of Family Physicians, in a telephone interview yesterday.

“Many physicians have said, ‘I simply cannot afford to keep taking care of Medicare patients,’” said Heim, a family doctor who practices in Laurinburg, North Carolina. “If you truly know your business costs and you are losing money, it doesn’t make sense to do more of it.”

The Mayo organization had 3,700 staff physicians and scientists and treated 526,000 patients in 2008. It lost $840 million last year on Medicare, the government’s health program for the disabled and those 65 and older, Mayo spokeswoman Lynn Closway said.

Mayo’s hospital and four clinics in Arizona, including the Glendale facility, lost $120 million on Medicare patients last year, Yardley said. The program’s payments cover about 50 percent of the cost of treating elderly primary-care patients at the Glendale clinic, he said.

“We firmly believe that Medicare needs to be reformed,” Yardley said in a Dec. 23 e-mail. “It has been true for many years that Medicare payments no longer reflect the increasing cost of providing services for patients.”

[...] Nationwide, doctors made about 20 percent less for treating Medicare patients than they did caring for privately insured patients in 2007, a payment gap that has remained stable during the last decade, according to a March report by the Medicare Payment Advisory Commission, a panel that advises Congress on Medicare issues. Congress last week postponed for two months a 21.5 percent cut in Medicare reimbursements for doctors.
