Yes, that’s right – perfect spelling and punctuation. Does that sound like any angry gamer you know? Plus, these tweets fit exactly under the 140 twitter character limit. Whoever made these planned and typed them out ahead of time. While this still could be the work of a very obsessive stalker, it shows that these tweets were not the work of a rage troll or someone spontaneously going off. This person created a new account just for these tweets rather than ranting from a previous account.
If someone was going to create a false attack on themselves, creating a dummy account would be the obvious way to go. Creating a full online persona would take a long time, and if Anita wanted to ride the publicity of the recent Zoe Quinn story in gaming, and synchronize death threat with the release her latest video release, she wouldn’t have time to create fully developed hater.
Anita wants us to believe she just happened to find this account, despite the fact it would be highly unlikely, if not impossible for Anita to have seen these tweets and taken the screencap she took had she not been logged into the account making them only a moment before. The more likely explanation is that Anita made these tweets herself, logged out, and took a screen-cap.
All of the above evidence is based solely on the public information Anita posted. But here at ROK, we have another level of insight – an insight into the psychology of the feminine mind.Read More at: http://www.returnofkings.com/42602/did-anita-sarkeesian-fake-death-threats-against-herself

A growing number of Americans say they believe the U.S. Department of Justice is motivated primarily by political interests and not by the pursuit of the truth, according to a survey from Rasmussen Reports.
The poll, which was conducted on Aug. 26-27 and contains a sampling margin of error of plus or minus 2 percentage points, found that only 38 percent of U.S. voters hold a favorable opinion of the department headed by Attorney General Eric Holder, while a much larger 53 percent hold an unfavorable opinion.
Further, of these respondents, only nine percent hold a “very favorable” opinion, while 26 percent hold a “very unfavorable” position.
But this is the really unsettling discovery in the survey: “Just 35% think the Justice Department is more concerned with making sure justice is done when it decides to investigate a local crime independent of local police. But 54% think instead that the Justice Department is more concerned with politics when it makes those decisions.”
The report, which polled some 1,000 U.S. adults aged 18 and older, also found that at least 36 percent have faith in local justice officials. The poll also found that 20 percent trust the state level of justice over all, while only 23 percent of U.S. voters put their faith in the federal level of the criminal justice system.
The survey's findings signal an obviously unhealthy and unsettling development.
As I have mentioned before, there's something very dangerous about a nation losing faith in its governing institutions, holding on instead to faith in its military and police forces.
Recall that roughly 35 percent of survey respondents in a Gallup poll dated June 5-8 said that they have “quite a lot” of confidence in the military, while 28 percent said they had “quite a lot” in the police. Meanwhile, Congress' approval rating has hit rock bottom, according to Gallup, while the Supreme Court's approval rating has slipped into the low 30s.Read More at: http://washingtonexaminer.com/americans-believe-the-department-of-justice-is-motivated-mostly-by-politics/article/2552604?custom_click=rss

Outspoken MP George Galloway has left hospital with severe bruising after he was punched repeatedly in the face and called 'Hitler' in a west London street attack, says spokesman.
The Respect MP for Bradford West was posing for pictures in Notting Hill when he was 'leapt on' and assaulted last night by a man yelling comments about the Holocaust.
He has been receiving death threats and hate mail after calling for Bradford to be 'declared an Israel-free zone' three weeks ago, according to his spokesman.
He said: 'George was posing for pictures with people and this guy just attacked him, leapt on him and started punching him and calling him Hitler.
'It appears to be connected with his comments about Israel because the guy was shouting about the Holocaust.
'He has been receiving a huge amount of death threats and hate mail since saying this.'

Why Japan's Abe and India's Modi are Asia's new best friends. India's Prime Minister Narendra Modi arrives in Japan Saturday for a five-day state visit focused on trade and defense ties. India and Japan have mutual concerns about China's rise – but China is also both countries' largest trade partner.
TOKYO — Even by Japan’s standards of hospitality, it is hard to recall a time in recent years when the visit of a foreign leader has been so eagerly awaited.
The blossoming economic and diplomatic ties between Tokyo and New Delhi were evident even before India’s prime minister, Narendra Modi, leaves Saturday for his first major diplomatic debut: a five-day state visit to Tokyo that will include talks with Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and an audience with the emperor and empress.
In a tweet posted in Japanese and English, Mr. Modi expressed “excitement” over his meeting with Mr. Abe, adding that he “deeply respects his leadership and enjoys a warm relationship with him.” Abe reciprocated, tweeting that “India has a special place in my heart.”

The two leaders will need to draw on that personal affinity as Modi arrives in the ancient capital of Kyoto for a visit framed by mutual concern over their unpredictable and increasingly assertive neighbor China. Japan and India face a tricky act balancing their apprehension over China’s vigorous territorial claims with their desires to court its huge markets.

ZIONIST WHORE AND U.S. AMBASSADOR TO THE U.N. SAMANTHA POWER SAYS RUSSIA LIED OVER MILITARY ACTIVITY IN UKRAINE

From the dawn of human history people have married. Until very recently, they have always married members of the opposite sex.
In truth, the issue of same-sex marriage has never arisen. It’s not that the wish has been repressed. It’s that no one ever thought of it.
If many people now believe that it is perfectly natural and normal for gays to marry, how come no one ever thought of it before. Isn’t there something slightly suspicious about that?
Throughout human history gays have often been subjected to vicious persecution. The situation has been better in some places at some times; worse in other places at other times.
Contemporary thinking has it that gay relationships were reviled because they were not called marriages. Many people believe correctly that we should put an end to such persecution. That same-sex marriage will do it remains to be seen.
Moreover, marriage has always been a universal institution. If you are married here you are considered to be married everywhere you go. Everyone everywhere recognizes you as married. You do not cease to be recognized as married when you cross a border.
The same does not apply to same-sex marriage. Most of the world does not recognize the validity of such unions. The notion that the rest of the world will eventually come around to the enlightened American opinion on the matter seems a bit like wishful thinking.
(It seems roughly equivalent to having a proper name. No matter where you go your name stays the same. It does not even get translated into different languages. One might ask what would happen to your sense of your identity if your name changed in different parts of the world.)
Institutions that are universally recognized are very likely based in something that belongs to nature. They are not merely cultural excrescences, to be changed at will.

Rainbow world: the most colourful places on Earth – in pictures. The world is full of landscapes that are so surreal, and so intensely coloured, that it’s hard to believe they really exist. Take a look at some of the strangest, and most vibrant, views in the world, from a pink lake in Senegal to striped rock formations in China.
|Blooming tulip fields in the Netherlands.|
|Lake Retba in Senegal – the pink tint is due to the presence of algae called Dunaliella salina.|
