Rape Culture: The UK Failure to Prosecute Rape

The Most Revolutionary Act

Abandoned Survivors

Press TV (2017)

Film Review

This is a 2017 Press TV documentary about the British failure to successfully investigate and prosecute rape cases. The statistics they uncover are appalling:

  • Between 2013-2017, Britain experienced a 150% increase in rapes. During this period, only 3% of rape complaints went to trial.
  • Between 2016-2017, Britain experienced a 30% increase in rapes, simultaneous with a 30% cut in police resources.
  • British police accuse rape victims of lying in 20% of cases.*
  • In 30 years, Rape Crisis London has experienced only one successful rape conviction.
  • Only 5.7% of suspected rape suspects go to prison for their crime.
  • Convicted sex offenders (including child molesters) only spend an average of four years in prison (sentences are much shorter than for theft and drug offenses, presumably due to their low economic impact).
  • Most convicted rapists re-offend (ie commit rape) within one year of leaving prison.
  • Increasingly…

Japan Ends Coronavirus Emergency With 850 Deaths and No Lockdown

AGR Daily News

It’s unclear why Japan has a relatively low infection rate and a comparatively small number of deaths due to COVID-19. Abe has faced criticism for taking little action to curb the virus’ spread as many other nations implemented stringent lockdowns.

“Just by looking at death numbers, you can say Japan was successful,” Mikihito Tanaka, a professor at Waseda University specializing in science communication, and a member of a public group of experts on the novel virus, told Bloomberg. “But even experts don’t know the reason.”

Professor Warns Cancer Deaths Due to COVID Disruption Will Be Greater Than Deaths From Coronavirus – Summit News

AGR Daily News

A professor at King’s College London has warned that there will be more excess cancer deaths over the next 5 years than the number of people who die from coronavirus in the UK due to the disruption caused by the coronavirus lockdown, which is preventing cancer victims from getting treatment.

Richard Sullivan, professor of cancer and global health and director of its Institute of Cancer Policy, said: “The number of deaths due to the disruption of cancer services is likely to outweigh the number of deaths from the coronavirus itself over the next five years.”

Now Democrats Are Stuck With Biden, by Kurt Schlichter

STRAIGHT LINE LOGIC

Will they let him out of his basement? From Kurt Schlichter at theburningplatform.com:

Now Democrats Are Stuck With Biden

Contrary to much speculation on the right, Democrats stuck with the fast-failing, feeble Joe Biden through their hilariously inept convention – Stop! Hey! What’s that sound! Look at this LP of my grandpa’s that I found! – and they are now well and truly stuck with him. Felonia Milhous von Pantsuit did not stagger in, waving her half-empty bottle of screw-top Trader Joe’s Chardonnay, and putsch him out of the way. Michelle stayed put in her seaside villa from which she chides us for, among other things, not taking the global warming hoax’s rising ocean threat seriously. And Kamala failed to get that box of “special” chocolates past Oldfinger’s latest food taster.

Luckily, for the Democrats, Gropey J’s speech was the greatest speech in the history of speeching, according to reliable and objective mainstream media sources whose…

Biden’s Revenge Agenda, by Kurt Schlichter

STRAIGHT LINE LOGIC

Biden and the Democrats intend to inflict misery on many Americans, particularly those inclined to support Trump. From Kurt Schlichter at theburningplatform.com:

Biden’s Revenge Agenda

The agenda of President Joe “25th Amendment Bait” Biden, to the extent he has an agenda besides trying to find his perpetually lost slipper down there in his basement lair, consists entirely of taking vengeance upon you for your crime of defying the garbage establishment and electing Donald Trump.

He doesn’t want to help you. He’s not even interested in leaving you alone. Instead, the progressive Geppetos holding the strings to this withered old Pinocchio, should he become a real boy next January, are entirely committed to punishing you and ensuring that you are nothing like a citizen ever again.

All they have to do is hold the House, flip a few Senate seats, and fool America into thinking that Grandpa Badfinger is still “Middle Class Joe”…

Hymn for a Broken Empire: Republican National Security Officials for Biden — OffGuardian

The Most Revolutionary Act

If fodder is needed for the argument that a Deep State is running wild and determined to depose President Donald J. Trump, this will surely help. In a statement by self-titled“former Republican National Security Officials”, a hand-on-heart allegiance is made to Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden.

The authors are intent on moving the incumbent out of office, “profoundly concerned about our nation’s security and standing in the world under the leadership of Donald Trump. The President has demonstrated that he is dangerously unfit to serve another term.”

These former security officials, who include former Deputy Secretary of State Richard Armitage and former Director of the Central Intelligence Agency and National Security Agency Gen. Michael Hayden, see Joe Biden as the better horse. He has “the character, experience and temperament to lead this nation.”

They might have their disagreements with him, but there would be “the time to debate…
