Review of BBC’s Three Girls

I got through it. It was a tough, slow slog of a docudrama but it is the only thing that has dealt with the subject in detail. It comes in three one hour segments and, from what ai heard, the BBC gave this their best time slot, 9pm to 10pm, on the night it ran. What I think got to me was that it dealt primarily with all the feeling of the women involved, victims and advocates, but went a little light on the practical details.

There is one thing that bothers me. Feminists want to restructure sex offense trials to the point where testimony is given once and not subject to cross examination. They want to remove the adversarial nature of the court. This would require that we take accusers at their word, which I see as fraught with peril to justice for the accused.

Here is the first episode.


I wish that I could say better about it, but it disappoints.

    One of the things that I failed to mention is that the main character shuts down a neighborhood boy at the start of the story. She took a pass on a healthy boyfriend/girlfriend relationship.
    Another thing that struck me is that feminists who could have brought this to light earlier didn’t care because local boys weren’t deriving any benefit. Rhey have to hate local boys a lot to feel that way.

    The Rochdale child sex abuse ring involved under-age teenage girls in Rochdale, Greater Manchester, England. Twelve men were convicted of sex trafficking and other offences including rape, trafficking girls for sex and conspiracy to engage in sexual activity with a child, on 8 May 2012. Forty-seven girls were identified as victims of child sexual exploitation during the police investigation. The men were predominantly British Pakistanis which led to discussion on whether the failure to investigate them was linked to the authorities’ fear of being accused of racism. The girls were mainly white British.[In March 2015, Greater Manchester Police apologised for its failure to investigate the child sexual exploitation allegations more thoroughly between 2008 and 2010.

    The “funny mustache” was popular until 1939. He used to have a full one, but had to trim it to seal his gas mask in WWI.
    Had the girls been taken advantage of by natives, the cops would have been all over this.

    Like her pop-superstar predecessor Britney Spears, Grande has advanced a renegade, self-reflexive sexuality that’s threatening to the established heteropatriarchal order. If the Manchester bombing was an act of terrorism, its venue indicates that the attack was designed to terrorize young girls who idolize Grande’s image.

    About the Ariana Grande event drawing more women. I do have to wonder if that was a factor? However, events that large don’t tend to be directed primarily at boys. It’s just a guess, but it seems that boys aren’t being catered to.

    For centuries Europe had a feudal system where a lord would run a small fiefdom and there would be various interactions with other aristocratic families, usually power related, but these guys ran the place. However, as fiefdoms merged into principalities and principalities into kingdoms and occasionally empires the power of the nobility waned. As the early policy in some regions of kings being elected gave way to primogeniture, the nobles became locked in, unable to advance, except at the expense of some other family, or perhaps in the event of a succession crisis, an invasion or coup. Then some of those damned commoners began making far more efficiently than any conceivable taxes on one’s tenants. This was the merchant class, and they began creating wealth hand over fist and in some cases, like the Hanseatic League surpassed kingdoms in wealth, and certain aspects of power. Of course, to the nobles this was a great injustice. After all, they had legitimacy through their bloodline. These dirty capitalists selling cod of all things and gaining wealth without having first secured noble parentage were…CHEATING!

    This being based on accident of birth, a litany of effete’ social standards were set up to distinguish themselves from those who could not appreciate the magnificent blueness of the noble’s blood. Their identity was not being common and so they shunned all things that had any trappings of the average people of their kingdom. On the other hand they tended to resent the upper aristocracy, who were a hard limit on their ascendance, indeed, an invasion or power struggle where a noble chose astutely to change loyalties could result in a major increase in stature. And of course these people had a white hot burning hatred for what we now refer to as capitalism as it enable even the basest people who were clever and assiduous to rise most distressingly…with no regard to ancestry.

    When speaking of groups it is important to remember that they consist of unique individuals with the God given potential to develop their characters in any direction. However, in general, the minor nobility (of Europe in particular) became an insecure, status-obsessed group of inbreds whose social position above the hoi polloi was based on…not being of the hoi polloi. They were inclined to deeply resent their leaders and despise free markets, the latter because they threatened them by allowing an alternative avenue to mobility that did not pass through the nobles social register. They flaunted social mores to the extent they did not alarm the upper aristocracy because they could get away with it in a way that the commoners and the merchants (who were mostly commoners themselves) could not, this becoming a marker of their status and further establishing their position above those hated groups.

    Obviously, this is a gross generalization, this class of people who had leisure time and nothing to do did produce some who applied themselves to non-despiseable eccentricities. (See Newton, Issac).

    However, by and large we are talking about a social class that was pretty much worthless and hated everything.

    Well not quite. They had much more in common with their fellow members of the minor nobility club in their country and others. So you had this group of people who had far greater affinity for people of similar status in other countries than they did with their own countrymen who they tended to despise as base and provincial in comparison to the ever so interesting different trappings of other countries…nobility.

    Now even the most venal of us want to feel that we are good and noble. So the minor nobility twisted their noblesse oblige into a contemptuous pity for and desire to “help” (but not actually grant respectability to) the commoners. Now they often had no actual comprehension of how these people lived or what would help them. However, if the nobles were ever presented with the opportunity to remove their mask and express their sincerest and most heartfelt impressions to the king and his upper level aristocrats then the hoi polloi had the potential to not merely be objects of pity and charity, but could be most useful. If, after such a transpiration of events, the commoners were ungrateful or forgot their place, well, ‘ if the Vendee can’t be a good example they can be a teaching moment’.

    Fortunately, even before the Vendee was bathed in cruor, the founders of our country had provided us with a way to avoid this unfortunate societal dynamic. Title of Nobility Clause means we don’t have nobility. For generations our upper classes tended to be people who moved up through hard work or at least astuteness. Now this is no foolproof filter against jerkwads achieving success. However this denied the upper middle class the permanence and persistence of a title. This break from historical norms produced an amazingly productive economy, that in 130 years went from a bankrupt backwater far from the center of civilization to an industrial giant less than a decade behind the most advanced nations on Earth in most technologies (and a world leader in a few). One of the factors here was that our successful people had to keep producing or, well, it wasn’t like they could fall back on their titles ‘CAUSE THEY DIDN’T HAVE THEM!

    This often vexed the children of the successful as they were suddenly expected to be productive. Going back to even before the days of Caroline Webster Astor setting up “The 400” there were attempts by people to secure their position an eliminate competition (the trusts of the 19th century for instance). Astor’s mean girl snobbery was an overt attempt to create a de facto aristocracy, but, without the titles there was nothing to enforce it and, indeed, families that produced children obsessed with such trivialities did not compete well. Thus there was intense churn amongst the upper class as new people came in bringing new technologies and the children of the previously successful proved to be a tad too comfortable to achieve the spark needed to compete and their families were frequently replaced by people bringing new ideas.

    However, in recent years, a combination of factors that include regulations raising entry barriers to start up businesses, the inordinate weight placed on credentialism and in particular credentials from a few universities that only accept people from the upper echelons of society and a few new comers who think as they do. These factors mean that the credentialed class is now, for the first time in the U.S., largely self perpetuating. Elite credentials as titles of nobility certainly seems to be a superior arrangement to primogeniture, but in practice, the credential, seems to nullify any sense of noblise oblige, just as the group is becoming increasingly hereditary and it seems, far more credentialed than meritocratic.

    This is an extremely status-conscious group and like the Astors of old they have found a kindred spirit in their hereditary counterparts of the old world. The upper classes of developing nations as well are drawn to this and this trans-national class of jet-setters who scold us on our carbon footprint are arguably more international in makeup and outlook than even the Third International. Despite being, in some ways a successor to the old Comitern, this transnational class is, while generally leftist in its politics, quite hostile to and contemptuous of the working classes in general. Indeed, their identity, at least in the U.S.A., is based on not being working class. Futhermore, while this group is want to proudly tout their cosmopolitan outlook, they seem to be, from the outside looking in remarkably provincial. That is, they talk to people from the same social strata from around the world, who are thus similarly socialized. Their diversity is thus superficial at best.

    Likewise, their policies, while leftist are far closer to the black shirts than the brown. They are explicitly corporotist in outlook, forming cartels that rival and potentially surpass the American gilded age trusts in scope and power. The main difference between them and the Rockefellers, Carnagies and Morgans is that theiy frequently enjoy indulgence by the government is based to a large extent on social acceptability and political loyalty, with regulatory agencies becoming a weird hybrid of the Cultural Revolution, the Court of Versailles and Tammany Hall.

    Like the minor nobles of old this group has set up elaborate rituals, ceremonies and byzantine social codes to differentiate themselves from the average Joe.

    “Because “Joe”, as a name for a “male”, is cis-normative and also an example of patriarchal oppression given that “Joe” is being used as an example rather than Jane, unless, “Joe” is actually a girl which might make it barely acceptable, though bland and non-exotic except in cases where “Joe” used to be a guy named Felix but has transitioned. This is especially true in cases where Felix was a white male and now identifies as a Black tree-squirrel named Joe who demonstrates freedom from the patriarchy by marrying xerself. ”

    Which brings us to Political Correctness which is not merely a totalitarian movement to squelch and instill fear in political opposition, it is a modern equivalent to the old powdered wigs and courtly graces and appreciation for the latest fashions which required social connectedness in the pre-internet age. It is a barrier to entry for those who do not live and breathe it, and only someone who has considerable leisure time or is working in circles where the ever changing rules are being discussed. It’s a way to differentiate the nobles from the plebs.

    The upper middle class/minor nobles have been the strata that has given history its Catalines, Robespierres and Che Guevaras. Now they pretty much run the world.

    Of course these guys face a problem that the vicecounts and barons of old never faced. The plebs still have a vote, which is why they have been bringing in lots of foreigners to their respective countries with which to cancel out that annoying fact. That this has deleterious effects on the average citizen is not seen as a bug to these latter day aristocrats. This, of course is why we got Trump, who while odious in his own ways is the working class equivalent to Churchill siding with Stalin against Hitler. It is a singularly desperate, hail Mary pass by the working and middle classes to save themselves from serfdom.

    It should be remembered that he notion of a republic of free people equal before the law is an aberration in the history of humanity. It is a concept that we struggled to live up to and only embraced as a society in the last 40 years. We are in danger of loosing it, to a new variation on history’s most perennial concept pf governance… aristocracy.

    The Islamophobia lie killed 22 people in Manchester. It happened on the watch of the GMP.

    No one takes Islamophobia more seriously than the Greater Manchester Police. When Muslim sex grooming gangs were abusing little girls in Rochdale, the GMP dutifully covered it up. On one of the recorded interviews, a police officer can be heard yawning as a girl describes her abuse.

    An MP who had pursued these cases said that the authorities “were afraid of being called racist.”

    Even after Judge Clifton brought it out into the open, stating, “You preyed on girls because they were not part of your community or religion”, Detective Chief Superintendent Mary Doyle insisted, “I think if we start to get ourselves hung up on race and ethnicity issues, we take away the real issues.”

    Detective Constable Maggie Oliver resigned from the GMP for its mishandling of the sex grooming cases. She has warned that offenders are still on the loose. “What I saw in Rochdale was police officers and senior cops acting without any shame because it was convenient to ignore the abuse they knew was happening,” she warned.

    There’s still no shame.

    CNN is obsessed with the fact that President Trump called the Manchester attackers “losers.” Former State Department spokesperson and now CNN contributor, John Kirby, said the term “losers” might not “resonate with jihadis” as much as “murderers” would have.

    I know this because in late 2014 a person contacted me about helping me to start a branch of the Internet Party in the United States. He called himself Panda. I now know that Panda was Seth Rich.

    Panda advised me that he was working on voter analytics tools and other technologies that the Internet Party may find helpful.

    I communicated with Panda on a number of topics including corruption and the influence of corporate money in politics.

    “He wanted to change that from the inside.”
    I was referring to what I knew when I did an interview with Bloomberg in New Zealand in May 2015. In that interview I hinted that Julian Assange and Wikileaks would release information about Hillary Clinton in the upcoming election.

    The Rich family has reached out to me to ask that I be sensitive to their loss in my public comments. That request is entirely reasonable.

    I have consulted with my lawyers. I accept that my full statement should be provided to the authorities and I am prepared to do that so that there can be a full investigation. My lawyers will speak with the authorities regarding the proper process.

    If my evidence is required to be given in the United States I would be prepared to do so if appropriate arrangements are made. I would need a guarantee from Special Counsel Mueller, on behalf of the United States, of safe passage from New Zealand to the United States and back. In the coming days we will be communicating with the appropriate authorities to make the necessary arrangements. In the meantime, I will make no further comment.

    Ms. Kay continued, “As ISIS gets squeezed in Syria and Iraq, we’re going to see more of these kinds of attacks taking place in Europe, and Europe is starting to get used to that.”

    Ms. Kay’s defeated sentiment isn’t new. While not her intention, she articulated not the reality of our situation, but the policy preference of failed western leadership.

    In 2004, Sen. John Kerry, then the Democratic presidential nominee, was interviewed by The New York Times. When asked “What it would take for Americans to feel safe again,” Mr. Kerry answered, “We have to get back to the place we were, where terrorists are not the focus of our lives, but they’re a nuisance.”

    Fast forward to August 2016. Sensing that terrorism was an actual problem, Mr. Kerry had another idea. Speaking in Bangladesh he noted, “If you decide one day you’re going to be a terrorist and you’re willing to kill yourself, you can go out and kill some people. You can make some noise. … Perhaps the media would do us all a service if they didn’t cover it quite as much. People wouldn’t know what’s going on.”

    Genius. Let’s just not mention it, and everything will be OK.

The plane was designed for UK to Moscow with a theoretical, if pointless, return flight to whatever would be left of this island after a Russian nuclear attack. It didn’t have the B52 range that you required.

    The mission impossible of the Falkland’s War
    Last updated at 17:16 26 May 2006

    It was the most daring RAF raid since the Dambusters: Flying a jet 20 years past its sell-by date 4,000 miles beyond its range to bomb a target a few yards wide…the result was to change the course of the Falklands War:
    Mission impossible many people called it – an attempt to fly an ageing British jet bomber 4,000 miles beyond its maximum to bomb a 40-yard wide target from a height of 10,000ft.

    The Pentagon believed it was impossible. So, privately, did others commanding the British Task Force sailing south towards the Falkland Islands after their invasion by Argentina in the spring of 1982. And for the six-man crew of Vulcan 607, in the early hours of April 31, it was beginning to turn into a suicide mission.

    Spawny Get,
    Do you think the pheasants had something to do with it? To reward their no fuss landlord?

    I have had a few stray thoughts about Ms. Feisty from yesterday. I think that she, along with most women, look to government to be their protector. It seems they would rather marry the state.

    The b52 is still in service. So is the ch47 and a few other airframes. Not to mention the good ol m16.

    The engineers should be proud of that one. Military equipment doesn’t typically last like that though the whole concept of bombers and what not should be replaced by cruise missles and uav’s

    Full movie. A great one. The book too.

    One of the smart B52 design decisions (iirc) was that it shared parts with the Boeing 707. Really hope my memory is correct as its too late to google it on a kindle. The maintenance bills were not as catastrophic as the specialised Vulcan. Smart decision.

    I second Spawny’s endorsement of that movie. I only saw it recently for the first time and was pleasantly surprised. Powers Boothe add a lot to any movie. I just looked him up to spell his last name correctly. Sadly, he passed away this month.

    UK Government Harbored Terrorists Linked to Manchester Blast for Decades

    As suspected and as was the case in virtually all recent terror attacks carried out in Europe – including both in France and Belgium – the suspect involved in the recent Manchester blast which killed 22 and injured scores more was previously known to British security and
    intelligence agencies….

    Thus, astoundingly, according to the Telegraph, a thriving community of listed terrorists exists knowingly in the midst of the British public, without any intervention by the UK government, security, or intelligence agencies – with members regularly travelling abroad and participating in armed conflict and terrorist activities before apparently returning
    home – not only without being incarcerated, but apparently also without even being closely monitored…

    For the residents of Manchester, the British government appears to have categorically failed to inform them of the threat living openly in their midst. While the British population
    is divided and distracted with a more general strategy of tension focused on Islam, Muslims, and Islamophobia, the very specific threat of US-UK sanctioned terrorists living and operating within British communities is overlooked by the public.

    However – for British security and intelligence agencies – it is unlikely that such an obvious security threat was merely “overlooked.” That extremists thrive within British communities without government intervention indicates complicity, not incompetence…

    As these terrorists filter out of Syria and back home, those hailing from LIFG are mainly returning to the UK where they have been known by US and British security and intelligence
    agencies for years to exist. With them they will be bringing back the technical knowledge and experience needed to carry out devastating attacks like the recent blast that targeted Manchester.

    It is terrorism that follows as a direct result of British foreign and domestic policy – supporting terrorists abroad and deliberately refusing to dismantle their networks at home – all as they feed fighters and resources into the US-UK proxy war still raging in Syria.

    The British government is directly responsible for the recent Manchester blast. It had foreknowledge of LIFG’s existence and likely its activities within British territory and not only failed to act, but appears to have actively harbored this community of extremists for its
    own geopolitical and domestic agenda. The recent blast will only reinforce the unsophisticated “tolerance versus bigotry” narrative that has gripped British society, entirely
    sidestepping the reality of government sanctioned terrorism wielded both abroad and against its own people – not for ideological or religious purposes – but purely in pursuit of geopolitical hegemony.

    All this isn’t just in the minds of conservatives. It’s real. Very real. “Nearly two-thirds of Americans say the mainstream press is full of fake news, a sentiment that is held by a majority of voters across the ideological spectrum,” The Hill reported on Thursday.

    President Trump gave Macron a very stern handshake after Macron snubbed him. Macron greeted Merkel and ignored President Trump at first. Trump then put his hand out for a handshake and Macron got manhandled. Trump really made Macron look like a petulant child.

    As for Michelle Obama, could it be that, as she has returned to normal citizen status, there is no one around to advise on how to dress? At least, ignorance can be fixed.

    Macron snubbing Trump? He should be reminded of how much trouble a flyswatter can cause.

    So sad this is

    Imzy, a site founded by former Reddit Inc. Vice President Dan McComas and pitched as a safe-space alternative to Reddit itself, is folding up shop.

    McComas posted Wednesday that despite having raised $11 million in venture capital funding, the site was shutting down. Announced in April 2016, Imzy, created by Saurus Inc., attempted to take on the “front page of the Internet” with a community forum product that was heavily moderated so as to conform with social-justice norms. It had the added bonus of offering moderators and contributors the ability to earn money via tips from other users, with Imzy taking a small cut of each tip to make money as an alternative to advertising. Clearly, as a business model, that didn’t turn out well for them.

    Imam Shaikh Mohammad Tawhidi was live from Melbourne and said the terrorist violence we see around the world is taken directly from the mandates in Islamic scriptures.

    “We have a large number of youth that are being radicalized. This happens because of the books that we have, the Islamic scriptures that we have,” Tawhidi said. “They push the Muslim youth to believe that if you go out there and kill the infidel, that’s how you will gain paradise.”
