By GILLIAN FLACCUS Associated Press LOS ANGELES January 31, 2013 (AP) The Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Los Angeles will soon reveal 30,000 pages of confidential personnel files without blacking out the names of the church leaders who knew about sexual abuse by priests and made key decisions on how to handle it, an archdiocese attorney said Wednesday.
The names of any bishops, vicars for clergy and supervisory parish priests will be included in all the documents and they will be turned over to lawyers for abuse victims soon, said archdiocese attorney Michael Hennigan. Vicars for clergy are responsible for priestly discipline and often made significant decisions about how to handle problem priests with input from the bishop or archbishop.
"We have chosen to remove redactions of those key individuals on every document," Hennigan said in an email. "There will be no ambiguity."
The commitment to release the documents without significant redactions comes after a five-year legal battle over the priests' privacy rights and a more recent dispute in court with The Associated Press and the Los Angeles Times, along with victims, over identifying those in positions of responsibility within the archdiocese.
A first round of 14 priest files made public in Los Angeles nearly two weeks ago showed that recently retired Cardinal Roger Mahony and other top officials maneuvered behind the scenes to shield molester priests, provide damage control for the church and keep parishioners in the dark about sexual abuse in their parishes. Those documents, released as part of an unrelated civil lawsuit, were not redacted and provided a glimpse of what could be contained in the larger release expected no later than Feb. 22.
Rochelle Wilcox, the attorney representing the AP and the Los Angeles Times, said the church's promise was a victory for the public's right to know how church leaders handled molesting priests.
The media organizations filed an objection Wednesday to a proposed order by the archdiocese that would have allowed it to release the files with the names blacked out, but with a cover sheet on the top of each priest's file listing the names of top church leaders who handled the case.
Hennigan, in an email Wednesday, maintained that the proposed order gave the church the option of removing the redactions or providing a cover sheet for each file. The church chose to remove the redactions because it was too confusing to prepare cover sheets, Hennigan said.
A record-breaking $660 million settlement in 2007 set the stage for the release of the personnel files, which contain letters among top church officials, accused priests and archdiocese attorneys, complaints from parents, medical and psychological records and — in some cases — correspondence with the Vatican.
A judge's order in 2011 said the church could redact the names of the church hierarchy, but the LA Times and AP intervened earlier this month and another judge ordered the archdiocese to provide more transparency.
The confidential files could be turned over to more than 500 alleged victims as early as next week, said Ray Boucher, the lead attorney for plaintiffs. What's contained in the files is "chilling," Boucher said.
"Every bishop and every vicar of clergy has been so indoctrinated with the view of protecting the church from scandal that they allowed heinous crimes to be committed," he said.
"That's the irony in all of this. In their vain attempts to protect the image of the church, they've tarnished it beyond repair."
A jihadist website posted a new threat by al Qaeda this week that promises to conduct “shocking” attacks on the United States and the West. The posting appeared on the Ansar al Mujahidin network Sunday and carried the headline, “Map of al Qaeda and its future strikes.” The message, in Arabic, asks: “Where will the next strike by al Qaeda be?” A translation was obtained by Inside the Ring. “The answer for it, in short: The coming strikes by al Qaeda, with God’s Might, will be in the heart of the land of nonbelief, America, and in France, Denmark, other countries in Europe, in the countries that helped and are helping France, and in other places that shall be named by al Qaeda at other times,” the threat states. The attacks will be “strong, serious, alarming, earth-shattering, shocking and terrifying.”
Hagel more > Under a section of the post on the method of the attacks, the unidentified writer said the strikes would be “group and lone-wolf operations, in addition to the use of booby-trapped vehicles.” “All operations will be recorded and published in due time,” the message said. “Let France be prepared, and let the helpers of France be prepared, for it is going to be a long war of attrition.” The reference to France appears linked to the group’s plans for retaliation against the French-led military strikes in northern Mali in operations to oust al Qaeda terrorists from the North African country. The Ansar al-Mujahidin network is a well-known jihadist forum that in the past has published reliably accurate propaganda messages from al Qaeda and its affiliates. U.S. counterterrorism actions over the past 10 years have prevented al Qaeda from conducting major attacks. However, U.S. officials warn that the group continues to be dangerous, despite the killing of its top leaders in drone strikes and special operations. A U.S. official said the threat is being taken seriously by the U.S. government. “Extremists regularly make threats online,” he told Inside the Ring. “This one is not particularly unusual, but of course should be taken seriously.” Retired officers on Hagel Retired senior military officers on the right and left of the political spectrum are squaring off in the confirmation fight for former Sen. Chuck Hagel, President Obama’s nominee for defense secretary who is set to appear before the Senate Armed Services Committee on Thursday. Conservative former officers say Mr. Hagel is the wrong person to head the Pentagon because of his soft-line views on Iran, hostility toward Israel and support for cuts in U.S. military and nuclear forces.

I have seen and felt evil , i can under stand why God puts evil down , and casts it into the Lake of fire.
If Hell exists, and it exists forever as you WASP wankers insist, it is poor misunderstood Satan (PBUH!) who wins the battle of good against evil, not your ogre of a God and his mincing, simpering, misogynistic son.
Tell me Yoni, how does God defeat evil if every evil cunt that ever lived, together with their totally truthful and guileless idol, Satan, (PBUH!) lives on in Hell forever?
There is you, a few other Pommie Proddies, a sprinkling of Seppo Baptists, and Revelation's 144,000 Jewish faggots – maybe a million of you cravenly crawling cunts all together - all living what amounts to a living death in an unbelievably boring, joyless, and hermaphroditic "Heaven". Whose solitary activity is incessantlysinging retch inducing sycophantic psalms to Jesus and, hopefully, enduring those dreary bring-a-plate/casserole nights they have on a typically Protestant, suicide inducing Sunday. Only Heaven's wrist-slitting Sunday never ends.:suicide:
While down below untold billions of the most evil people who ever lived, together with God's evil alter-ego, Satan (PBUH!) suffer forever in eternal torment. However they are still living and still evil, therefore putting paid to the devil dodger's idea that God will rid his creation of evil. :loser::loser:
While you are at it, explain to me why Satan, (PBUH!) the epitome of evil who absolutely loves evil people, punishes people for being evil?!!
Imminent threat to the 2nd amendment right now! NOT assault weapon ban or mag cap, its much worse !
These liars know exactly what theyre doing, and theyre decieving the public!
It has nothing to do with Newtown or 'for the children' and everything to do with an attack on the second amendment.
It has nothing to do with background checks in reality, but everything to do with REGISTRATION!
THIS is the real conspiracy.
THIS is where the true effort is by those undermining the 2nd amendment in a coordinated, determined conspiracy to undermine the 2nd amendment. All the rest of it is just red herring. The AWB and mag cap is just red herring.
They are trying to make this look like COMPROMISE, when it is in fact the most dangerous thing of all by far!
What theyre GOING for is UNIVERSAL FEDERAL FIREARM REGISTRATION under the guise of going after 'universal background checks.'
A 'universal background check' system can only be enforced through a universal federal firearm registration and they damn well know it! The vast majority of foolish, dumbed-down, naive Americans who say they support universal background checks havent thought about it and dont realize it requires registration in order to enforce.
'universal background checks' = requires universal federal firearm registration! .... and .... registration is the necessary stepping stone to eventual confiscation.
This is exactly what was done in England and Australia. Registration, then confiscation followed.
Now, when someone tells you solar is too expensive, you can just say "Fuck you". And for that alone, we should thank these scientists.
Researchers from the University of Oslo have used a bunch of “wonderful tricks” to produce silicon solar cells that are twenty times thinner than commercial solar cells. This breakthrough means that solar cells can be produced using 95% less silicon, reducing production costs considerably — both increasing profits (which are almost nonexistent at the moment), and reducing the cost of solar power installations. Standard, commercial photovoltaic solar cells are fashioned out of 200-micrometer-thick (0.2mm) wafers of silicon, which are sliced from a large block of silicon. This equates to around five grams of silicon per watt of solar power, and also a lot of wastage — roughly half of the silicon block is turned into sawdust by the slicing process. With solar cells approaching 50 cents per watt (down from a few dollars per watt a few years ago), something needs to change. Reducing the thickness of solar cells obviously makes a lot of sense from a commercial point of view, but it introduces another issue: As the wafer gets thinner, more light passes straight through the silicon, dramatically reducing the amount of electricity produced by the photovoltaic effect. This is due to wavelengths: Blue light, which has a short wavelength (450nm), can be captured by a very thin wafer of silicon — but red light, with a longer wavelength (750nm), can only be captured by thicker slabs of silicon. This is part of the reason that current solar cells use silicon wafers that are around 200 micrometers — and also why they’re mirrored, which doubles the effective thickness, allowing them to capture more of the visible spectrum. In essence, the University of Oslo researchers have devised methods for trapping those longer wavelengths, even when the silicon wafers are just 10 micrometers thick. The first trick is using microbeads — very small plastic spheres, uniform in size, that create an almost perfect periodic pattern on the silicon. These beads force the sunlight to “move sideways,” increasing the apparent thickness of the silicon by 25 times. The University of Oslo is also experimenting with asymmetric microindentations on the back of the silicon wafer. ”Cylinders, cones and hemispheres are symmetrical shapes. We have proposed a number of structures that break the symmetry. Our calculations show that asymmetrical microindentations can trap even more of the sunlight”, says Erik Marstein, one of the researchers involved with the work. The researchers are in talks with industrial partners to investigate whether these methods can be scaled up to industrial production. The researchers seem quite confident that their technology could come to market within five to seven years. Now read: Solar panel made with ion cannon is cheap enough to challenge fossil fuels
Petition: We Demand Surveillance Technology in Congress and White House
Prison Planet.com January 29, 2013 It’s no secret the federal government is engaged in large-scale surveillance of the American people under the fallacious pretext of protecting us from al-Qaeda and other official enemies. From buses and street lights to police drones and facial recognition, the government has installed “homeland security applications” in cities from New York to California in wanton violation of privacy and the Fourth Amendment. In response to this disturbing and audacious trend and its final outcome – turning the entire country into a huge panopticon prison system – Alex Jones and Infowars.com have posted a petition on the White House website calling for the tables to be turned: we demand that an elaborate high-tech video and audio surveillance system be installed immediately in the Oval Office and all congressional offices where professional criminals connive and plot their treason in secret. “The Department of Homeland Security is currently providing tax-payer funded grants to install microphones and cameras in public buses and is also funding the use of facial recognition technology in airports and bus and train stations to surveil the American people without probable cause,” our petition reads. “Due to rampant and well-documented corruption at all levels of the federal government, we demand that this ubiquitous surveillance technology be placed in the White House and all congressional offices and a live-feed of the video be made available at the Library of Congress and its website. Alex Jones and Infowars.com are making this demand because the government is listening and watching the American people at a time when we need to watch the government and keep its tyranny in check.” “Government is not reason; it is not eloquent; it is force,” George Washington so eloquently stated. “Like fire, it is a dangerous servant and a fearful master.” Government must be kept on a short leash and watched closely – and that’s why we are calling for the modern wonder of digital technology to be used to watch the beast that is government before it moves as it invariably does to enslave its host.

Confessions of a Jizzmopper First of all, what is a "jizzmopper"? It's a slang term for a guy who works at a porn store/adult book store/sex toy store.
These places go by a lot of names. Most common these days is "Adult Book Store". We all know the type of place. But more specifically, I'm talking about the places that have a sign advertising a "Peep Show" or "Adult Arcade". These are code words. Code for what? You'll soon see.
Now, I want to give some disclaimers before I get to the facts.
1. This is vulgar subject matter. There's no way to explain this subject without delving into topics that are taboo.
2. I'm not here for shock-value. I'm not here to make some political or social statement. I'm just here to present one of the ONLY verifiable "conspiracies" that you'll find on this site. It's a "conspiracy" that you can verify for yourself.
3. This thread IS NOT A CALL TO ACTION. It is my strongest recommendation that you, the reader, follow the LIVE AND LET LIVE philosophy. DO NOT COMMIT ACTS OF VIOLENCE. DO NOT TRY TO INTERFERE! TO EACH THEIR OWN--if it's not hurting you, then LET SLEEPING DOGS LIE!!!
I guess you could say that my introduction to the "Peep Show Subculture" (hereafter called "PSSC") began before I even started working at the porn store. In my 3rd year of college, I was working for a telemarketing firm that did fundraising for conservative causes (NRA and Republican Congressional Committee). It was a place called Infocision. You might have one in your town too. It's the type of place that hires college students, misfits and weirdos.
We had periodic smoke breaks and that's when employees got a chance to talk and get to know each other. Well, there was this creepy old perv that used to talk to me during the breaks. He always tried to bring up sexual things and point out cute girls that we worked with. What made him creepy was that he would always tell me, in detail, what he wanted to do with these girls. I was just a dumb kid who didn't like confrontation of any kind. So I just went along, nodding my head.
Well, one day he asked me if I had ever been to the porn store in Anmoore. I told him that I bought whip-its there once. He said, "Did you know they have a hole in the wall there where you stick your dick and a real pretty girl will suck it?". I laughed it off as obvious bullshit. But now I know what he meant.
Several years later, I had lost a good-paying job. Anyone who's been unemployed knows that you try to find a job as quickly as possible, even if it's not ideal. Being unemployed makes you feel useless, ya know? I applied at a lot of different places but was considered "overqualified" due to my education. I saw a sign outside of "Adult News" (that's the porn store in Anmoore) advertising "help wanted". I thought it might be cool to sell x-rated videos and dildos for a while. I had nothing to lose and thought I could probably meet some hot slutty chicks. How could this not be fun? I went in and applied. I got the job easily but I thought it was weird that they had me sign a nondisclosure agreement. I don't remember the exact wording but it emphasized that our customers needed the assurance of a discrete experience. I rationalized that most chicks wouldn't want to have it known that they buy vibrators and stuff. No big deal. The next day, I had to come for training.
When I arrived, the manager gave me a tour of the store and explained the operations. I couldn't believe my eyes and ears. I will explain it to you.
The porn store did good business but it was mainly a "front". The real money came from selling "tokens".
Each token has the cash value of a quarter. And customers had to buy a $3 minimum of tokens. That's 12 tokens.
The tokens are used in the peepshow in the back. There are booths back there (more on this later) and each one has a plastic chair and a TV screen set into the wall. The TVs don't work unless you insert a token. Each token gives you about 3 minutes of watching. The TVs have different channels all playing different types of porn. Gay porn. Straight porn. Tyranny porn. Gangbangs. Etc. Each Monday, we changed the movies so they wouldn't get old.
So, you might think that a guy buys some tokens, goes back to the peepshow, watches some porn and masturbates, right? Wrong. Let me explain the booths.
The peepshow is like a maze of dark alleys. The lighting is very dim. There are many nooks and crannies surrounded by booths. These booths are set up in pairs. In the wall between the pair of booths is a waist-high hole called a "glory hole".
Above the door of each Booth is a pair of lights. A red one and a green one. If the red light is on, then the TV in the Booth is not on. If the green light is on, that means there's a guy in the booth using his tokens to operate the TV.
So how does the PSSC use these tools? It was hard for me to realize at first but I began to understand after a while.
A guy goes into a booth and pops a token into the TV. This makes the light above the door turn green. That way, other guys will know that there's a guy waiting in that booth. The adjoining booth has a red light letting everyone know it's empty. A guy goes into the empty adjoining booth and puts a token in the TV. Now both lights are green and everyone knows not to bother them while they suck each other off and buttfuck through the "glory hole".
So who is a part of this PSSC?
Let's just say they are NOT who you'd expect. Most were "rednecks"--big hairy Carhardt-wearing tough guys. Others were suit-and-tie wearing types. Some were people I recognized. One was a family court judge. A couple were local funeral home directors. A couple were Pentacostal preachers. One was a Catholic priest. A couple were cops. A lot of over-the-road truckers would stop in in the early AM hours. Most of these guys were married men. And almost NONE of them thought of themselves as "gay".
On an average day, 300 or more guys would go in and out of the peepshow. The store is open 24 hours and has a back entrance and a back parking lot that can't be seen from the road.
Now, they don't call us jizzmoppers for nothing. We had to clean up back there. Yes, it was gross. I don't really want to get into it--but I've found a lot of weird stuff back there. One thing that I RARELY found were condoms or wrappers. I can only imagine the STDs that were spread back there. And I can only imagine the number of clueless wives that have HIV and don't even know it.
With that, I end this post. I know this is some weird shit. I'm sure there will be lots of questions. I'll continue to check this thread to answer questions.
WELL THIS GUY TELLS THE TRUTH
