The triumphant return of Shaheen, our Batman-man who comes to defend an abomination of a movie, Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice. He writes for this very site as well as Eric July’s band Backwordz’s website. Shaheen is our go-to for Batman and he really nerds out with us on this one.
His argument centers on the extended version making the theatrical cut actually make sense and even claims that the full version is a “masterpiece”. Can you polish a turd? We will be the judge of that.
Love it or hate it, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is a movie. We bring back our friend from down-under who argues that the theatrical cut was just not refined enough and that the director’s cut makes it a near masterpiece.
From director Zack Snyder comes “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” starring Ben Affleck as Batman/Bruce Wayne and Henry Cavill as Superman/Clark Kent in the characters’ first big-screen pairing. Fearing the actions of a god-like Super Hero left unchecked, Gotham City’s own formidable, forceful vigilante takes on Metropolis’s most revered, modern-day savior, while the world wrestles with what sort of hero it really needs. And with Batman and Superman at war with one another, a new threat quickly arises, putting mankind in greater danger than it’s ever known before.
Why Aren’t More Women Libertarians? Who Gives a Fuck?
By the Profe$$ional A$$hole
I’ve been hearing this question more and more like it’s a problem. It all boils down to the traits that make for a libertarian: analytical, disagreeable, independent, principled, logical, and low in effect.
Try to imagine a woman like this? The word “bitch” is usually employed. Mom, generally isn’t. It’s not like Ayn Rand was known for her womanly charm and motherly spirit. Quite the opposite.
I am ecstatic to announce that Indiegogo FINALLY processed my campaign and sent out the funds. It was a joy to wake up to and see that we could actually get on to making the comic now.
This morning I sent out the script, character details, and specs to our new comic production team, Cornerstone Creative Studios. Jesse Hansen, the art team lead, has been wonderfully helpful in ensuring that this will be a smooth production process. He’s excited to be working on this title and to bring the quality to the next level.
I will update you every few weeks with teasers/sneak peeks as the pencils, inks, colors, and letters come through.
Thank you again for your patience in waiting on this unusual delay with Indiegogo’s review process.
Let’s make this Voluntaryist issue the best one yet!
We Bust-a-Nut with some Booty Sweat and welcome back Doc Anarchy to the show to discuss Tropic Thunder, the controversial war movie send-up by and starring Ben Stiller that stirred up a bit of controversy with its use of the word, retard, and a white actor in blackface.
Ben Stiller, Jack Black and Robert Downey Jr. lead an ensemble cast in “Tropic Thunder,” an action comedy about a group of self-absorbed actors who set out to make the most expensive war film. After ballooning costs force the studio to cancel the movie, the frustrated director refuses to stop shooting, leading his cast into the jungles of Southeast Asia, where they encounter real bad guys.
Although grainy, the shocking video below sends a powerful message that the abortion industry is wicked. That narrative is a matter of fact. The video is effective, thus, it’s being casually brushed off as a hoax by some questionable “sources,” possibly because it is not what it seems or precisely because it is. But does it even matter?
I first saw the video when shared on Twitter recently by Father Frank Pavone, a stalwart in the pro-life movement. The Catholic priest is national director of Priests for Life, president of the National Pro-Life Religious Council, and pastoral director of the post-abortive recovery ministries Rachel’s Vineyard and Silent No More.
I’ve been long familiar with Pavone’s tireless advocacy for the unborn, damaged women, and broken families left in the bloody wake of abortion. So, when I viewed the video, I believed it to be the disturbing and demonic acts to which he referenced.
The co-founder of a “progressive political action” website was the first to push back against Pavone in the ensuing thread and unequivocally state that these were neonatal dolls used in medical school. Yep, a social-justice warrior had spoken, y’all, and we were all supposed to blindly accept her assertion, even though there are few more untrustworthy sources on the planet than an “intersectional feminist.”
Then like clockwork, a predictable PC barrage followed her lead. Pro-lifers were called stupid, fake Christians, who “should be ashamed for promoting lies and misleading people.” These self-proclaimed videography and medical-protocol experts were relentless, guaranteeing that the perceived babies were without a doubt just anatomical models.
But how do they really know? Am I to believe the “My body, my choice” brigade whose entire belief system is based upon killing the unborn, or Pavone, a man who has dedicated his life since 1976 to the pro-life cause? Am I to believe the cultural Marxists, whose entire ideology is built upon the destruction of the nuclear family and Christianity? Am I to trust leftists, who are masters of deflection and projection, propaganda and pretense, myth-making and malevolence. I think not.
A gender-confused chick named Stone wrote a whole series of tweets attempting to debunk the video as legit. She posed a few good questions, delivered a couple seemingly intelligent zingers, and attempted some patriarchal logic here and there. But who cares? Consider the source.
Similar rhetoric swirled around the controversial video last summer when it first appeared. What’s the original source of the video? Where and when it was taken? Who are the people in the lab coats? What’s actually going on here?
But the thing we must remember is that Stone and her ilk are building their entire premise on the presupposition that the people featured in the video (whether abortionists or medical students or lab techs or whomever) could never do such an abominable and unthinkable act as playing with murdered babies. Well, of course they could.
But we’re supposed to believe that those who work within Abortion Inc. are healthcare providers, not the medical monsters that they really are, and that the pro-abortion foot soldiers are principled advocates for women, not dupes and/or duplicitous deceivers. Well, let’s take a peek into the infanticidal practice these evil-doers call “choice.”
Remember Kermit Gosnell, the “doctor” convicted of the murder of three born-alive infants and the involuntary manslaughter of one woman during an abortion? Gosnell, who ran a multi-million dollar abortion business in West Philadelphia, would routinely deliver live babies who were moving and crying, so he’d “snip” their spinal cords with Metzenbaum scissors and shove them into freezers.
Just like Leather Face loved his chainsaw, late-term abortionists love their Metzenbaum scissors – a tool instrumental in ending the lives of babies who are 23 weeks gestation to full term. But how do others do it “legally” without going Gosnell?
One method is partial-birth abortion. As demonstrated by Dr. William Lile, this is a surgical abortion in which the abortionist uses a sopher clamp, a grasping tool lined with jagged teeth, to grab the baby’s leg while in utero and pull her feet-first into the birth canal. He then delivers the infant breech, wrenching all of the child’s now-lacerated body out of the womb, while keeping only the head inside the cervix.
At this point, the abortionist stabs the scissors up into the base of the child’s skull, breaking the connection where the brain and spinal cord meet. This will typically kill the baby. If not, a powerful suction machine is shoved into the gaping hole and the baby’s brains are removed.
The abortionist then delivers a dead baby. Mom’s now free of her “parasite,” the abortionist gets the big bucks, the child is now considered either “medical waste” or a “specimen” in the high-demand and lucrative human fetal tissue market, and “reproductive rights” roll on. Ain’t it empowering, ladies?
Induction is another gruesomely creative way of killing babies in the third trimester of pregnancy as explained by Dr. Anthony Levatino, a former abortionist with more than 1,200 murdered babies under his belt. He is now pro-life.
The abortionist first injects digoxin, a drug that causes fatal cardiac arrest, through the mother’s abdomen or vagina into the child’s head, heart, or torso. This usually kills the infant, but sometimes has to be repeated if the baby is shown through ultrasound still to be clinging to life.
After that, the mother will carry around her dead child for a few days, while waiting for the forced dilation to take hold and for ultimate delivery either at home or hotel, or back at the abortionist’s office. Medically inducing a stillborn birth of our defenseless sons and daughters is a helluva way to fight the patriarchy, grrrrls.
If not all the parts of the baby’s body come out during delivery, the remaining pieces are gathered up with the sopher clamp. Lastly, the uterus is scraped clean with a curette making sure to empty the womb of the now-useless placenta.
The sopher clamp is not only used for grasping, but it’s also the body-crushing device utilized in the second-trimester procedure known as dilation and evacuation (D&E). After forceful dilation of the cervix, the abortionist literally rips the baby limb by limb, removing legs, arms, heart, lungs, internal organs, spine, and all parts that comprise a human body.
“Oh, I have to hit the gym for this,” described one Planned Parenthood doctor when describing the force necessary to dismember a baby up to 24-weeks gestation. Oh, how droll.
The head, however, it too large at this point of development to simply grasp and remove in one fell swoop, so it must be pulverized before it can be extracted. The abortionist knows she’s successfully smashed the skull when the baby’s brain oozes out of the birth canal.
A medical assistant will then piece all body parts together in a tray, reassembling them together like a pestilent puzzle. Gotta make sure a face or an ear aren’t accidentally left behind as this could harm mom. Oh the irony.
This puzzle process must be done even in first-trimester aspiration abortions. This procedure uses a powerful suction catheter, which is inserted into the womb, violently and painfully drawing out as much of the five-to-13-week-old baby as possible.
The child, even though small and fragile, is fully formed toward the end of this trimester, with all vital organs in place and already functioning, and external genitals beginning to develop. (Heartbeat, of course, is around day 21 before most women even realize they’re pregnant.)
After the baby’s life is sucked out and snuffed out, all blood and tissue removed from uterus is sent to the POC (products of conception) lab for reassembling. “If the staff was feeling funny, they would say that it stood for parts of children,” noted Abby Johnson, former Planned Parenthood director, now pro-life activist Abby Johnson in a Kentucky hearing regarding the state’s Heartbeat Bill.
Communicating the nightmarish medical facts of abortion is now deemed as trafficking “pornography” or spreading “harmful misinformation,” according to Pinterest which recently banned pro-life groups. Such anti-abortion materials could “have immediate detrimental effects on a Pinner’s health or public safety,” claimed the popular social-media platform. So I’m supposed to put stock in propagandists who say truth can hurt you, but killing a baby is compassion? I think not.
Of course, these are the same kinds of people who claim that every undercover or leaked video capturing monsters admitting to circumventing laws pertaining to late-term abortions or doctors trying to keep pieces of the baby as intact as possible as to increase their price when selling body parts to human biologics companies is somehow “fanatic lying.” Evidence and facts are anathema to the choice zealots whose claims of unethical social-media posts should be ignored.
“You might consider deleting this one,” a Facebook follower told me when I first shared the fuzzy, unsourced video at top. “It is not helpful to spread/endorse a false narrative.”
But to me, the controversial video is indeed part of the honest narrative. Journalistically, the ghoulish scene cannot be confirmed, but it clearly symbolizes the overall truth that abortion is horrifyingly brutal and is carried out by heinous, narcissistic people who prey upon either the uninformed or the libertine.
That is why I decided to elucidate some of the creative baby-killing techniques. Let’s call it abortion realism. These are not unspeakable acts, but rather, they should be spoken about ceaselessly.
When you understand and speak up about the abomination and the corruption which props it up, do you really think those images in the video couldn’t be aborted babies, especially when the child on the right looks to have a Metzenbaum incision at the base of his neck? I mean, he’s cleaned off and ready to boogie in that medical tray. Funny, huh?
Do you really think that when an MVA instructor admits (in the papaya story), “There’s a tendency to dark humor. It’s intense, so you have to joke about it sometimes” that abortionists aren’t capable of playing with dead babies?
Do you really think that when the National Abortion Federation has a George R. Tiller “Attitude is Everything” Standard of Excellence Award, these are people who care two hoots about spreading falsehoods? It’s what their entire movement is based upon.
We need to shove the disgusting facts of abortion into the faces of the masses, just like they shove their sickness on to us (while also having us subsidize it). The life movement has truth, medical and biblical, on its side. Yet, this simply doesn’t matter to the radical pro-abortion crowd.
They are willing to not only kill babies and enrich genocidal maniacs, butcher mothers physically and mentally, minimize fatherhood, and destroy families, but they celebrate the death cult every step of the way. They will use any means necessary to perpetuate their fictitious and deadly narrative.
It’s time we stop being so nice and stop giving liars any credence at all. We live in a country where killing is king, reality is subjective, and dramatic quick-hit images can capture the collective mindset, so if a possible (but probably not) misconstrued video is what lights a fire under people to wake up to the truth, so be it. The narrative is everything in the culture wars. I say we aim to win.
We welcome the Profe$$ional A$$hole on the show for a Father’s Day special discussion of Legends of the Fall. We man up on what it means to become a man in this episode.
A passionate journey into the darkest secrets of love, betrayal, and the unbreakable bonds of blood, it is a powerful story about three brothers struggling to stay together and the woman who comes between them.
The Anthony Hopkins character is such a stud libertarian in this movie that we just had to talk about it.
We’ve got a hunger that can only be satisfied with a mouthful of White Castle Slyders. We hitch a ride on a cheetah with Rachel of Cannabis Heals Me to discuss this intelligent stoner comedy from 2004.
Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle follows the life-changing and mind-altering journey of Korean-American investment banker. Harold (Roldy) Lee and Kumar Patel are two stoners who get a serious case of the munchies that can only be satisfied by the “perfect burgers” from White Castle.
What should be a short trip across town, becomes a harrowing trip where they will encounter EXTREME obstacles including a rabid raccoon, a racist police officer, Freakshow and his hot wife, ride a cheetah and befriend NPH who’s trippin’ balls and steals their car. The boys overcome and discover something about themselves that makes them better people by the end.
We have an engaging discussion about cannabis and personal growth out of this low-brow movie filled with toilet humor and ever-increasing zaniness.
We boldly go where no man has gone before, on this show at least, and discuss an episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation with our pal, Patrick MacFarlane of the Liberty Weekly Podcast. You can find his show at: http://www.libertyweekly.net
Picking up decades after Gene Roddenberry’s original Star Trek series, The Next Generation follows the intergalactic adventures of Capt. Jean-Luc Picard (Patrick Stewart) and his loyal crew aboard the all-new USS Enterprise NCC-1701D, as they explore new worlds.
Season 1, Episode 7: Justice (Air date: November 9, 1987)
When Wesley is sentenced to death for innocently violating an alien planet’s custom, Captain Picard is forced to choose between negotiating for Wesley’s life or adhering to the Federation’s prime directive which prohibits interfering with another civilization’s way of life.
Rule of Law vs. Rulers – almost Anarchy. Justice is immediate and extreme. Like Gort, but on an individual scale. Intermittent as nobody knows when or where the law will be enforced, which is a schedule that is most effective for conditioning behavior.
This has a great philosophical and legal conundrum that we will sink our teeth in to as a special birthday request of co-host, Robert Johnson.
