Gates of Vienna News Feed 5/17/2016

An unidentified man drove his truck onto the National Mall near the Capitol building in Washington D.C., causing several nearby streets to be shut down by authorities. The man claimed he had been exposed to anthrax on a Virginia farm, and said he came to D.C. to seek help and warn people about the anthrax. Initial tests for the disease came back negative, and authorities said there was no danger to the public.

In other news, hundreds of Caribbean migrants are said to be abandoning their attempts to enter the United States, and are instead flying to Turkey where they pose as refugees seeking entrance to Europe.

Don’t be a Cuck, Zuck! Accept My Debate Challenge

by Milo

Breitbart wants to meet with Zuckerberg. They’ve authorised me to meet with Zuckerberg personally. But not in a media-controlled, behind-closed-doors photo-op environment. In a real, live debate where Zuckerberg can address the concerns of his conservative users in full view of the public — and on his own platform, live.

Despite the alleged censorship of conservative topics, Breitbart has clawed and hustled its way to fifteenth place in Facebook’s most engaged news sources, and we’re rising.

Meanwhile, Glenn Beck’s media empire is crumbling. I hope Zuckerberg doesn’t believe his meeting will have any credibility when the most exciting and beloved conservative news outlet of the last few years — us — refuses to attend. Because it won’t.

Four People Cited in East Point Mother’s Day Brawl

East Point police on Monday identified four people seen throwing plates, carts and punches in video of a Mother’s Day brawl that went viral.

Devecc Billingslea, 26, Zacarli Dalcoe, 25, Willis Jumario Hall, 26, and Demonte Harrison, 21, were cited for disorderly conduct in connection with the May 8 fight at Kiku Japanese Steakhouse and Sushi Bar on Marketplace Boulevard, East Point police Capt. Cliff Chandler said.

Man Drives Truck Onto National Mall, Claims He Was Exposed to Anthrax in Va.

Police and fire officials are investigating a possible hazmat situation after a man drove his truck onto the National Mall. The man claims he has a dangerous substance in his truck.

U.S. Park Police say the man believes he was exposed to anthrax on a farm in Virginia. He has not made any threats. He tells police he came to the area seeking help.

Park Police say the man was swabbed and tested for anthrax and his test came back clear.

U.S. Capitol Police and D.C. Fire are also on the scene.

On Clinton Cash, or, It’s Always Worse Than You Think

In his column for PJ Media, my friend Ron Radosh, the distinguished historian, outlines the case for believing that Hillary Clinton is the “lesser of two evils” compared to Donald Trump. Ron says that he is “fully aware” of Hillary’s liabilities, yet concludes:

On foreign policy, there is more hope that [she] will take a course that asserts American leadership abroad.

Ron is not alone in asserting this. Several prominent conservatives have, with varying degrees of hesitation (not to say repugnance), embraced Hillary Clinton as the less bad alternative to Donald Trump.

A new film, which will debut Monday at Cannes, may force them to reconsider that judgment.

Clinton Cash, the documentary film which I watched in previews yesterday, is based on the best-selling exposé of the same name by Peter Schweizer, the tireless investigative journalist who has devoted himself to confronting political corruption and crony capitalism regardless of the political affiliation of the perpetrators. Produced by Breitbart’s Stephen K. Bannon and directed by M. A. Taylor, Clinton Cash is crisply narrated by Schweizer and provides a relentless and devastating portrait of brazen financial venality in exchange for political favors.

Only Donald Trump Can Counter the Coup D’état of 2008

In 2013, Dr. Paul Craig Roberts, American economist, journalist, blogger, and former United States Assistant Secretary of the Treasury for Economic Policy under President Reagan in 1981, wrote an explosive article, “The Unspoken Truth: Coup D’état in America,” which stated: “The American people have suffered a coup d’ état, but they are hesitant to acknowledge it. The regime ruling in Washington today lacks constitutional and legal legitimacy. Americans are ruled by usurpers who claim that the executive branch is above the law and that the US Constitution is a mere ‘scrap of paper.’“


More frightening was Mr. Obama’s apparently irresistible attraction to the criminal enterprise known as The Muslim Brotherhood (MB), an organization founded in 1928 and closely aligned and complicit with the genocidal Hitler regime during World War II, and, today, a virulently anti-Western and anti-Semitic group that actively supports terrorist organizations like Hamas, Hezbollah, et al.

The MB’s motto is: ““Allah is our objective. The Prophet is our leader. Qur’an is our law. Jihad is our way. Dying in the way of Allah is our highest hope.” Nice, right? Just like the U.S. Constitution which speaks about the right of people to enjoy freedom, life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

Frank Gaffney, former Reagan administration official and founder of the Center for Security Policy, spells out in chilling detail the far reach of the Muslim Brotherhood in America since Barack Obama took office. From the beginning of his tenure, MB leaders have had unfettered access to the Oval Office, and many members are now found in the highest reaches of our government, including Homeland Security, State, the Pentagon, Justice, et al. At all levels, MB members are creating and implementing both the domestic and foreign policies of our country.

Blogger Kevin Jackson of, lists here just a few of the MB agents who now occupy and make policy in the most sensitive positions of our government.

And the American Report offers this six-part series entitled The Betrayal Papers, which presents an in-depth and chilling picture of the following:

Pastor Bizarrely Explains Anti-Muslim Church Sign: I’m Not Politically Correct, But I Am Biblically Correct

The pastor of an Oregon Baptist church is under fire locally for putting what critics call a bigoted message on his church’s sign board, KATU reports.

Pastor Michael Harrington placed the words on the reader board outside Belmont Drive Missionary Baptist Church. On one side it reads, “Wake up Christians, Allah is not our God, Muhammad not greater than Jesus.” On the other side, it says, “Only the Bible is God’s word, ‘holy book,’ Koran is just another book.”

“I’m not politically correct. I’ve never been politically correct, but I think I’m biblically correct, and that’s what matters to me,” Harrington told KATU. “It isn’t against any particular denomination. It’s just the fact that I have taught and will continue to teach that I have one God, one way of salvation and one Bible that’s holy.”

But locals, including the mayor, don’t want to see the signs.

“I was really annoyed and sad,” Hood River mayor, Paul Blackburn, told KATU. “I am annoyed that in this political season there’s a solid case of ugly going on. I think it norms up this kind of behavior like ‘oh it’s okay to be a bigot now.’

Another resident, Eric Cohn, said he was very upset.

“I literally had to stop and back up and make sure I saw what I saw, and I was profoundly offended and upset by it,” Cohn told KATU.

Harrington told the station he has no plans to remove the sign until the beginning of June, when he was planning to put a new one up anyway.

Senate OKs Bill Letting Families of 9/11 Victims Sue Saudi Arabia, Despite Threats

The Senate on Tuesday approved legislation allowing families of Sept. 11 victims to sue the government of Saudi Arabia, defying a White House veto threat as well as brazen threats of economic retaliation from Riyadh.

By voice vote, senators approved the Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act. The bipartisan sponsors of the bill, Sens. Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., and John Cornyn, R-Texas, are now calling on the House to follow suit.

“It’s up to the House,” Cornyn said, while insisting the legislation would not damage the U.S.-Saudi relationship despite what he described as “saber-rattling.”

Schumer said any foreign government that aids terrorists who strike the U.S. “will pay a price if it is proven they have done so.”

Saudi Arabia’s government has threatened to pull billions of dollars from the U.S. economy if the plan is enacted.

Sons of Climategate: Dodgy Scientists Caught Red-Handed by FOIA Lawsuit

The dodgy scientists who wrote to President Obama and Attorney General Loretta Lynch demanding that RICO laws be used to prosecute climate skeptics just got even more badly screwed.

Already one of them — George Mason University professor Jagadish Shukla — is under Congressional investigation for what has been described as the “largest science scandal in US history.”

Now the background to their footling conspiracy has been exposed thanks to a FOIA request by the Competitive Enterprise Institute which has forced them to release their private letters and emails.

Like Climategate, it makes for some fascinating reading, mainly because — yet again — it shows the climate alarmist establishment in such a terrible light.

Remember, these guys are supposed to be the experts on whose judgment our political leaders base their policies; every year they snaffle millions and millions of dollars worth of grant funding courtesy of the U.S. taxpayer — some of them may even be teaching your kids.

Woman Falls Into Trash Compactor That Mangles Her Leg After Man Offered Her $20 to Help Fetch His Keys

Authorities say a Massachusetts woman trying to fetch a pair of keys fell three stories into an apartment building’s trash compactor that then turned on and mangled her leg.

Police say a 19-year-old man had accidentally dropped his keys down the trash chute at the multistory building and offered the woman $20 to help him retrieve them.

The man and woman were identified locally as Zuriel Pujols and Neila Linatopi by WCVB.

Investigators say Pujols tied a sheet to Linatopi and lowered her into the chute.

The sheet ripped, sending her into the compactor.

Cpt. Conrad Prosniewski said while speaking to ABC News: ‘During their first attempt, he held her by her ankles and then lowered her head first down into the chute.

‘When that didn’t work, he got a sheet and tied it around her to lower her in.

‘But then it ripped, and she fell down.’…

Canada Fires Cost Oil Sands Production $763m

A new report into the financial impact of the McMurray fires says some C$763m (£527m) in oil sands production has been lost.

The analysis says the blaze has meant the loss of 1.2 million barrels of oil a day over two weeks.

The sum is equivalent to 0.33% of the province of Alberta’s projected GDP this year, as well as representing 0.06% of the country’s projected GDP.

“These are big numbers,” Kevin Birn, an analyst at IHS Energy, said.

He said he could not “remain silent” after Mr Johnson compared the EU’s aims with Hitler’s.

Leave campaigners said EU chiefs joining the referendum debate would help their cause.

Hypocrite Left: Free Speech for Hate Preachers — But Not Cartoonists

Danish left wingers who called for the prosecution of Muhammed cartoonists now block plans to ban hate preachers from Denmark.

Controversial plans for a blacklist that would ban hate preachers from Denmark have exposed leftwing hypocrisy, as the people and parties who called for hate speech laws to prosecute the cartoonists who drew Mohammed are now citing “freedom of expression” as a reason to oppose the ban.

Under the proposals, the country’s immigration service would compile a list of religious speakers and imams who, as Politico reports would be denied visas for “encouraging terrorism and anti-democratic attitudes”.

Prime Minister Lars Løkke Rasmussen said he hoped the list would be revised regularly in cooperation with other countries, and cited Britain’s ban on speakers deemed extremist by the government as inspiration.

Free speech advocate Flemming Rose noted this week that hypocritically many of the people opposing the planned blacklist, in the name of free speech, were ten years ago calling for the prosecution of the artists who drew Muhammad.

Major Leak From Brussels Reveals NHS Will be ‘Killed Off’ If Britain Remains in the EU

A major leak from Brussels has revealed the NHS will be killed off if Britain remains in the European Union.

Hundreds of papers from the secretive trade talks between the US and EU have been released online.

They appear to confirm fears that the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership talks between Brussels and Washington will, when ratified, lead to the health service being privatised or dismantled.

The documents, obtained by Greenpeace Netherlands, include a US proposal to have a committee with representatives from Washington and Brussels to meet each year “to review state-owned enterprises and monopolies” which would include the NHS.

Teen Victim of Cologne Sex Attacks Says Probe is a “Scandal” After Lone Suspect Walks Free

A TEENAGE victim of the horrific New Year’s Eve sex attacks in Cologne has lashed out at authorities after the only suspect walked free.

Dilara Zajarskaite, 17, claims she was molested by a roving pack of migrants in the German city earlier this year.

The teenager, one of up to 1,000 women who were allegedly attacked that night, has called the attacks a “scandal”.

She hit out at German authorities, labelling them “pathetic”, after none of the alleged rapists and gropers were brought to justice.

On that fateful night, Dilara had headed into Cologne central station with her best friend to ring in the new year.

But within minutes of arriving in town, they were set upon and assaulted numerous times by a gang of Arab men.

They were harassed, molested, assaulted and nearly abducted during five separate attacks, shockingly they claim as passers-by and police walked on by.

Waiving her right to anonymity, she said: “There were groups of Arabs everywhere.

“They appeared to be organised. Some were drunk, some were stoned and they were coming at us from different directions.

“One man grabbed my breasts and my bottom. They had their hands all over me. It was horrible. There was nothing I could do to stop them.

“Finally I managed to fall to the ground and I crawled away. One man had grabbed my friend and tried to through her over his shoulder.

“That was the last time I saw her being dragged away. I made my way to a bus stop and I found her. She was crying.

“The Arabs had got hold of her and tried to get her into a car but she was screaming and somehow she managed to get away.

“What hurt me most was the fact that people, even policemen, walked by and did not help, even though they could see we were in trouble.”

UK Armed Forces ‘Pray’ At Terror-Linked “Army of Darkness’ Mosque

British Army officers have visited and prayed at a ‘fundamentalist’ mosque that has been linked to the 7/7, 9/11, and San Bernardino terrorist attacks, Breitbart London can reveal.

Tablighi Jamaat (TJ) — whose leadership once hosted an Al-Qaeda associate of Osama bin Laden, who call on British Muslims to wage jihad against Western troops — became the focus of international scrutiny last year after San Bernardino terrorists Syed Farouk and Tashfeen Malik were found to have attended their mosques.

TJ is an offshoot of the radical Deobandi sect, founded in colonial India specifically to oppose Western culture. Their global Headquarters is in Dewsbury, England — a town that produced the leader of the 7/7 London bombings, several ISIS suicide bombers, and even Britain’s youngest convicted Islamist extremist…

Instead of trying to get into the United States a few hundred miles to the north, many are making the journey across the Atlantic to Istanbul in Turkey.

From there, they travel along the coast to join thousands of refugees on the perilous crossing of the Aegean to the Greek islands.

Police Agencies Voice Concern Jihadists Mixing With Migrants

Interpol and its European counterpart today warned of growing concerns that radical Islamists could be using illegal people smuggling networks to sneak into Europe or even fund their attacks and activities.

And in a joint report unveiled today, the two police agencies said those preying on desperate refugees had raked in up to USD 6 billion (5.2 billion euros) last year. That had turned the migrant flow into one of the largest money-earners for organised crime on the continent.

“Terrorists may use migrant smugglers’ resources to achieve their goals,” said the report by the global police body Interpol based in Lyon and Europol in The Hague.

Study: Migrant-Smuggling Worth Up to $6 Billion in 2015

Smuggling networks cashing in on the huge flow of migrants into Europe had an estimated turnover last year of up to $6 billion, international law enforcement agencies said Tuesday.

They said that the number of people trying to reach the European Union is expected to increase, with some 800,000 waiting in Libya to cross the Mediterranean. More than 1.2 million people applied for asylum in the EU last year.

A summary published Tuesday of a joint Europol and Interpol report also warned: “There is an increased risk that foreign terrorist fighters may use migratory flows” to sneak into Europe. It noted that two extremists involved in the deadly rampage in Paris on Nov. 13 last year entered the EU through Greece as part of the influx of migrants from Syria.

Europol said an estimated 90 percent of all migrants entering the European Union have their trip facilitated by smugglers, sometimes helped by corrupt officials paid off to ensure boats are released and vehicles allowed to pass borders.

Male and Female Still Matter in Combat

The purpose of our military is to field the finest troops possible to defend our nation and win wars. The goal of feminists, however, is to impose a mindless equality, regardless of how many people it hurts.

Women lack the upper-body strength that men have. Soldiers need to carry into the battlefield gear weighing 60 to 120 pounds, which is impossible for most women.

Soldiers must also move quickly while carrying these heavy loads, which creates stress for their knees and other joints. Medical studies show that women athletes have four to six times the risk of men in suffering knee injuries.

An injury on the battlefield endangers not only a soldier who is hurt, but also others around her. Studies show that men tend to spend too much time helping an injured female soldier, rather than advancing the military objectives of the battle.

Last year the Marine Corps did a study that compared the effectiveness of all-male troops to that of co-ed troops. In results that should surprise no one, the all-male units had much lower injury rates and higher overall performance than mixed-gender units.

Our national security is not served by this misguided attempt to force young women to register for a military draft. Tell your Representative and Senators to remove this offensive provision when the national defense bill comes to the floor.

Norway to Allow People to Change Gender by Simply ‘Ticking a Box’, With Children as Young as Six Able to Swap Without Any Medical Procedure Under Proposed Rules

Norway will allow people to change gender by simply ‘ticking a box’ with children as young as six able to swap without any medical procedure under proposed rules.

The new bill will mean an end to psychiatric exams, lengthy hormone treatments and invasive surgeries resulting in irreversible sterilisations that have been the practice for a legal gender change in the country since the 1970s.

It will also allow minors aged six to 16 to change their gender if both parents agree. If one parent opposes, authorities may decide ‘in the child’s best interest.’

Princeton Prof: Transgenderism Not Scientific, ‘Superstitious Belief’

George’s concerns over the transgender movement echo the recent statement by the American College of Pediatricians, which argued forcefully against encouraging young people to question their own biological sexuality.

“A person’s belief that he or she is something they are not is, at best, a sign of confused thinking,” the doctors stated. “When an otherwise healthy biological boy believes he is a girl, or an otherwise healthy biological girl believes she is a boy, an objective psychological problem exists that lies in the mind not the body, and it should be treated as such.”

The pediatricians noted that children who think they are a different gender than they are suffer from a recognized mental disorder called “gender dysphoria.”

The letter from the Obama administration treats gender dysphoria as if it were a healthy, rather than pathological, mental condition.

“Transgender describes those individuals whose gender identity is different from the sex they were assigned at birth. A transgender male is someone who identifies as male but was assigned the sex of female at birth; a transgender female is someone who identifies as female but was assigned the sex of male at birth,” the letter asserts.

Though preceding the Obama edict by nearly two months, the Pediatricians’ statement reads like a direct response to the unprecedented measure.

“Endorsing gender discordance as normal via public education and legal policies will confuse children and parents, leading more children to present to ‘gender clinics’ where they will be given puberty-blocking drugs,” the physicians warned.

“Conditioning children into believing that a lifetime of chemical and surgical impersonation of the opposite sex is normal and healthful is child abuse,” they concluded.

Revealed: Facebook Exec Sheryl Sandberg’s Wacky 1991 Feminist Thesis

Sheryl Sandberg’s senior thesis, overseen by former Clinton staffer Larry Summers, might suggest why Facebook has developed a problem with conservatives. It provides a rare insight into the psychology and politics of a senior executive at one of the most powerful tech companies in the world.

In the thesis, Sandberg uses bizarre, discredited statistics and fashionable but shaky arguments about the “pervasive influence of the patriarchy” to explain domestic violence. The full thesis can be read below.

The Facebook COO appears to have wholly bought in to feminist pseudo-statistics, making the extraordinary claim that 95 percent of domestic violence victims are female. The true ratio of male to female domestic violence victims is now known to be far more even, with meta-analyses of over 200 studies showing a rough gender symmetry in domestic violence.

Sandberg can’t be excused by the date of publication (1991). By then, researchers had long been aware that men and women abused each other on a roughly equal basis. By 1988, this research had already been published in mainstream journals.

She does not find space to compare the state of women in the Islamic world with their peers in Europe and the United States.

“The pervasive influence of patriarchy in society has resulted in the widespread acceptance of the ideology of male dominance,” Sandberg writes.

With growing awareness about the hidden epidemic of male domestic violence victims, male users of Facebook — particularly those affected by domestic abuse themselves — may be concerned that such a high-ranking member of the company apparently believes them to be in such a tiny minority.

Those seeking to understand the achingly right-on progressive politics at Facebook will be reading Sandberg’s thesis today with keen interest.

  1. A number of entries confirm that ‘creative-name-giving’ leads to antisocial behavior and/or deprivation.

  2. JOKE

    “Boomzi Boom, Boomzi Bam” – cruel satire from Israel

    Israeli satire group is mocking the Islamized Europe, ISIS and the Swedish “Melodifestival” This Eurovisional Industrial Music Nightmare now spreads throughout the world – it may become “World Vision”. It keeps the mob sleeping under even most serious and escalating problems, and enables the Swedish Valium Journalists to keep 4/5 of all Swedes sound .


    1st of May festivitas i Malmö, Sweden served by the Left – Vänster – party.

  3. “Fear of Islam drives proposal to change Samoa’s constitution”
    There are 2 Samoa’s, One being American Samoa, and then there is Western Samoa, which gained independence from New Zealand rule 1962.
    Trade and business still very orientated to Australia and New Zealand.'s-constitution

    “Call to ban Islam in Samoa put down to ignorance”
    Then the opposition from an academic Dr in New Zealand why it is so wrong and then how to reduce prejudice, which is created by media.

    That just shows a glimpse of the “welcome refugee” concept that is in New Zealand.
    Well after all New Zealand welcomed many immigrants from Samoa, Tonga, Fiji, Cook Islands, and many other small Island States.

  4. Two Taste of heaven: Moses and his Ten Commandments and “When you pray, pray in this manner” : The Lord’s prayer.

    Today I came across a third significant prayer derived from the previous two :

    Prayer for UK to leave EU
    We pray to you Heavenly Father and Holy Spirit through the intercession of your beloved Son Jesus Christ, to deliver us from the European Union. By the light of the Holy Spirit, may people be guided to vote wisely, freeing us from the grip of this godless entity that refuses to recognise you.
    We offer our heartfelt sorrow for our own sins and those of the nation and beg your forgiveness. We offer most ardent thanks for your many graces and mercies – spiritual and temporal.
    We promise to do all in our power to promote devotion to Christ and encourage others to follow Him and keep His Commandments for the time to come.
    This prayer is made through Our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.
    Please print off this prayer and keep it with you, saying it daily. Bear in mind especially the Third Hour, 3 O’clock, as it is the Hour of the Passion. Just a moment or two’s thought and a heartfelt “… My Jesus, Mercy”, to ask that the vote goes in our favour on June 23rd. God bless you.

    I join my invocation cordially to you so that the almighty might save Europe from a perishing inferno. Smite the traitors.

    If traitors are destroyed we can/ may have a new lease on life.

  5. Anyone else get a flashback to the beginning of ‘The Stand’ when they read that opening paragraph … ??

  6. I don’t claim to be extremely knowledgeable about this subject but to me the EU, seems to be about Germany or Merkel, laying down the law to all other members of the EU. Seventy or so years ago the world united to stop Germany ruling Europe. Ooops, looks like Europe once again is being ruled by Germany. Its a different ideology from seventy years ago, but still is harmful for Europeans, especially the women of Europe.
    Schengen (hope I spelt that correctly) and multiculturalism have been a massive failure. I can’t believe that the subjugation of a country’s culture and identity to become some rootless homogenous” Europa”. is good for all the countries concerned. Especially when they are being invaded by hordes of muslim men and have to appease them by repressing more of their culture. Then they get told by Merkel that they have to take more of the “refugees”.
    I read that the German people are getting more disillusioned by Angela Merkel and the problems that the ‘refugees’ cause. Some are even saying it could end in a civil war in Europe. So possibly once again, Europe goes up in flames, and the EU, being heavily influenced by Germany, is one of the major causes.
    So will it end up that Angela Merkel has been just as bad for Germany and Europe as Adolph Hitler.
