01) LEAKED: Jamal Khashoggi’s Fingers Cut Off While Still Alive
“Turkish officials are leaking what they say are details of Jamal Khashoggi’s alleged torture and murder.
Saudi agents were waiting when Jamal Khashoggi walked into their country’s consulate in Istanbul two weeks ago. Mr. Khashoggi was dead within minutes, beheaded, dismembered, his fingers severed, and within two hours the killers were gone, according to details from audio recordings described by a senior Turkish official on Wednesday.
The government of Turkey let out these and other leaks about the recordings on Wednesday, as Secretary of State Mike Pompeo visited Ankara, in an escalation of pressure on both Saudi Arabia and the United States for answers about Mr. Khashoggi, a prominent Saudi dissident journalist who lived in Virginia and wrote for The Washington Post.
The new leaks, which were also splashed in lurid detail across a pro-government newspaper, came a day after Mr. Pompeo and the Trump administration had appeared to accept at face value the promises of the Saudi rulers to conduct their own investigation into Mr. Khashoggi’s disappearance — regardless of Turkish assertions that senior figures in the royal court had ordered his killing.

01) Dismantling the stigma against discussing child sexual abuse prevention
“Prostasia Foundation CEO Jeremy Malcolm explains how stigma forms the biggest obstacle for child sexual abuse prevention.”
This is the Prostasia Foundation…
…I’m certain some of their core positions differ substantially from my own…
Maybe I’ll feature more of their videos…maybe not…I’ve not really watched them yet…
…and I have a strong reluctance against featuring content, which I feel badly stigmatizes positive, early life sexuality…and positive sexual relations, which fall outside of the “normal” social narrative.
I only feature such, if I intend on providing a thoughtful response to it…Which, I don’t do so much, anymore.
Child sexual abuse is a real thing…And I am against it…
…But I am also against people who forcefully dictate from on high, when happy relationships in happy settings, amongst happy people [child and adult], “are child sexual abuse”.

01)  The Scary Crushing Of Dissident Voices w/ Carey Wedler
“Lee camp speaks with editor of Anti-Media Carey Wedler about leftist news sources being purged from social media platforms. Then, he speaks with Reverend Edward Pinkney about his experience as a political prisoner.”
Yes…This is how these businesses work.
It’s interesting watching this sort of thing happen to more mainstream people.
I don’t support this abusive censorship…but…it needs to happen, to get people angry and mobilized.
