Gates of Vienna News Feed 6/12/2016

When he addressed the nation this afternoon about this morning’s terror attack in Orlando that killed 50 people at a gay nightclub, President Barack Hussein Obama did not mention JIM. However, he did emphasize the urgent need for stricter gun control, so that senseless tragedies like this one may be prevented in the future.

In other news, five people were injured at an airport in Shanghai when a man threw a homemade bomb made out of a beer bottle at a check-in counter. After the attack, the alleged perpetrator cut himself in the neck with a knife, and is now in critical condition in the hospital.

It Begins: One European Bank Fails, Another One Needs an Urgent Cash Injection!

Interesting news this week as Belgium-based Optima Bank has been shut down by both the National Bank of Belgium (which also acts as the Belgian regulating body) as well as the ECB. According to the national supervisor, the bank would have been unable to meet its commitments to its clients and was forced to cease all banking activities after some potentially fraudulent transaction were unveiled.

It’s surprising to see the main media have tried to keep this silent as even the website of the National Bank of Belgium didn’t bother to issue the press release in English (whereas all other press releases on the home page can be read in English). There’s no statement from the ECB either, nor has this news been translated on the English version of website of the state-owned national television station.

The situation is so bad the regulator has already immediately tasked the special fund organizing the Deposit Guarantee Scheme to start paying out the clients of the bank, even though Optima Bank hasn’t filed a bankruptcy procedure just yet. The urgency of the need to pay the clients does indicate the situation is extremely bad and even though it’s a very small one (it had closed the savings accounts division last year), there are two more important things you need to keep in mind.

Why Are So Many Bankers Committing Suicide?

Three bankers in New York, London and Siena, Italy, died within 17 months of each other in 2013-14 in what authorities deemed a series of unrelated suicides. But in each case, the victim had a connection to a burgeoning global banking scandal, leaving more questions than answers as to the circumstances surrounding their deaths.

The March 6, 2013 death of David Rossi — a 51-year-old communications director at Monte dei Paschi di Siena, the world’s oldest bank — came as the institution teetered on the brink of collapse.

Rossi was found dead in an alleyway beneath his third-floor office window in the 14th-century palazzo that served as the bank’s headquarters.

A devastating security video shows Rossi landing on the pavement on his back, facing the building — an odd position more likely to occur when a body is pushed from a window.

The footage shows the three-story fall didn’t kill Rossi instantly. For almost 20 minutes, the banker lay on the dimly lit cobblestone, occasionally moving an arm and leg. As he lay dying, two murky figures appear. Two men appear and one walks over to gaze at the banker. He offers no aid or comfort and doesn’t call for help before turning around and calmly walking out of the alley.

About an hour later, a co-worker discovered Rossi’s body. The arms were bruised and he sustained a head wound that, according to the local medical examiner’s report, suggested there may have been a struggle prior to his fall.

But the death was ruled a suicide to the disbelief of Rossi’s widow, Antonella Tognazzi. She was quoted in the Italian press as saying her husband “knew too much.” She staged public demonstrations and hired a lawyer to investigate her husband’s death.

50 Killed in Shooting at Florida Nightclub in Possible Act of Islamic Terror

A gunman who federal authorities say had possible ties to terrorism opened fire early Sunday morning in a packed Orlando nightclub, killing 50 people and wounding at least 53 more in a bloody scene that ended hours later when police stormed the building and killed the shooter.

Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer asked Gov. Rick Scott to declare a state of emergency following the attack.

The gunman was identified as Omar Mateen, Rep. Alan Grayson said during a Sunday morning press conference. Mateen was a U.S. citizen, Grayson said, though that was “not true of other family members of his.” Mateen, 29, lived in Fort Pierce, Fla. He was born in New York to parents of Afghan origin and was a Muslim, Fox News confirmed.

A licensed security officer, Mateen also had a Statewide Firearms License, Fox News reported.

Authorities were going through Mateen’s belongings on Sunday morning trying to identify a motive for the attack, Grayson said…

Anti-Islam Groups Say ISIS Has a South Texas Camp. Doubt it.

Located off a county road in South Texas, what some believe is an ISIS terror compound known as “Mahmoudberg” doesn’t look like a place where terrorists would train. It looks more like a small community of rundown homes and older trailer houses. In other words, it looks like a lot of rural Texas.

Built decades ago, the Mahmoudberg’s homes are hidden in the thick woodland of Brazoria County where trees sweat and floodwaters pool. Abandoned cars and overfilled trash cans act as lawn ornaments in the overgrown yards of what many conservative bloggers call “an Islamist terror enclave” near the Texas coast.

A beheading of a South Texas man named Jubal Alexander is the reason for this expedition to the ISIS terror compound about 47 miles from the bridge where the decapitated body was found. A pipefitter by trade, he’d been employed at his job fewer than 30 days when someone killed him on April 27. His head is still missing.

A fisherman discovered his headless body on May 3. The 24-year-old Port Arthur resident’s body was sitting in his blue Chevy pickup, where he’d been sleeping parked under a bridge near the Brazoria River. His company paid him a per diem, his father says, but he was saving the money and sending it to his girlfriend back home in Port Arthur.

“He was murdered in a terroristic way, in a way that is indicative to ISIS,” his father posted on Facebook in early May. “They cut his head off and took it. I believe it was Islamic Extremists. … We should not live in a country where our children and families’ heads are cut off. … Please take a stand against extreme Islam.” He wrote “jihadists and cartel” mules are crossing the river all the time because it channels into the Gulf of Mexico. “No VISA or passport is required,” he wrote.

“It is so hard!!!” he added. “I cannot bury all of my son!!! The fear that some Islamic extremists will use it as a prop … Me and his mother are broken …”

His fear is grounded in a dubious claim that the FBI had found terrorist cells across the country, even deep within conservative states like Texas. The report was by the Clarion Project, a maker of films that drum up fear of an Islamic effort to take over America. The project is part of what the Center for American Progress calls the Islamophobia network drumming up anti-Muslim hysteria…

More Job-Killing Rules From EPA

Having already done yeoman’s work stifling economic growth and job creation, President Obama’s Environmental Protection Agency is doubling down again.

The United States created a paltry 38,000 new jobs in May: one for every 8,000 Americans. Its labor force participation rate is a miserable 63%-meaning 93 million Americans are not working, while 6.4 million more are trying to feed their families on involuntary part-time positions and a fraction of their previous salaries. Manufacturing lost another 20,000 jobs in May, as the economy grew at an almost stagnant 0.8% the first quarter of 2016. Middle class family incomes and net worth continue to slide.

Meanwhile, well-paid federal bureaucrats increasingly regulate our lives, livelihoods and living standards, hand down fines and jail terms for some 5,000 federal crimes and 300,000 criminal offenses, and inflict $1.9 trillion in annual regulatory compliance costs on families and businesses.

EPA’s war on coal has already cost thousands of jobs in mines, power plants and dependent businesses. Low oil prices amid a tepid, over-regulated, climate-fixated, crony-corporatist American, European and international economy have already killed thousands of US oil patch jobs.

On June 3 EPA issued more rules: methane emission standards for new and modified oil and natural gas drilling, fracking, pipeline and other operations. Under steady environmentalist pressure, it may be only a matter of time before the agency covers existing operations-and maybe even livestock, rice growing, landfills, sewage treatment plants and other methane-emitting activities.

The agency justifies these new job-killing rules by citing something it calls the “social cost of methane,” which is patterned after its equally arbitrary, speculative, infinitely malleable “social cost of carbon.” (Carbon, of course, actually means carbon dioxide-the miracle molecule that enables plant growth and makes all life on Earth possible.) Both the SCM and SCC are needed, EPA insists, to prevent dangerous manmade global warming and climate change, which it claims are driven by these two trace gases.

Nine Officers Distracted Orlando Gunman With Explosive Device Before Shooting Him Dead as Experts Say Decisive Swat Team Action ‘Saved Many Lives’

The moment nine brave officers shot dead a suspected Islamic extremist wielding an assault rifle and a handgun in the midst of a killing spree has been captured on video.

A succession of gun shots can be heard in the video, taken by a witness from a rooftop opposite the club, as police engage in a shootout with the killer.

Experts praised Orlando police for their swift actions, which they say ‘most likely saved many lives’.

Speaking at a press conference Sunday, Orlando Police Chief John Mina said in future that the police will continue to use ‘extreme measures’.

The gunman opened fire on the dance floor inside Pulse nightclub, Orlando, at around 2 am leaving about 50 people dead and 53 others wounded, officials confirmed late Sunday morning.

[Comment: Initial reports of 20 dead were increased once police thoroughly searched the club premises.]

Obama Calls for Gun Control Action and Doesn’t Link Orlando Terror Attack to Islam in Address to Nation

President Obama furthered his gun control message today when addressing the massacre in Orlando that killed 50 people, making it the deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history.

‘Although it’s still early in the investigation we know enough to say that this was an act of terror and an act of hate,’ Obama said, making no reference to ISIS or Islamic terror in his brief remarks.

Obama called the shooting spree, at the gay nightclub Pulse during Pride month in the United States, a reminder of how easy it is for someone to get a hold of a weapon that could kill people in a ‘school, or a house of worship, or a movie theater, or in a nightclub.’

‘And we have to decide if that’s the kind of country we want to be,’ Obama said.

‘And to actively do nothing is a decision as well,’ the president added.

The president started his remarks by addressing where things stood in the investigation.

‘We are still learning the facts. This is an open investigation. We have reached no definitive judgment on the precise motivations of the killer,’ Obama said.

NBC News reported earlier that the gunman, identified as 29-year-old Omar Mateen, had called 911 before he staged his attack and pledged allegiance to ISIS.

‘What is clear is that he was a person filled with hate,’ Obama said…

Omar Mateen Identified as Pulse Nightclub Gunman

Omar Mateen has been identified as the Pulse nightclub gunman who killed 20 people during a rampage Sunday morning, CBS reported.

Mateen, 29, was a U.S. citizen from Port St. Lucie, Fla., the network added.

He was killed after a showdown with police inside the nightclub. His parents are from Afghanistan and authorities are investigating whether he had ties to Islamic extremists, CBS said.

Florida Department of Law Enforcement Special Agent in Charge Danny Banks says the mass shooting is being investigated as an act of terrorism.

He says authorities are looking into whether this was an act of domestic or international terror, and if the shooter was a lone wolf.

Orlando Police Chief John Mina says the shooter was armed with an assault-type rifle, a handgun and some type of suspicious device.

Police had said previously on Twitter that there was a “controlled explosion” at the scene of the shooting at Pulse Orlando. Mina says that noise was caused by a device intended to distract the shooter.

Terror Attack at Orlando Gay Club Leaves About 20 People Dead

A terrorist opened fire inside a popular Orlando gay club near closing time early Sunday leaving “approximately” 20 people dead and 42 others wounded in one of the deadliest American mass shootings, according to authorities.

The 2 a.m. attack was “well organized and well prepared,” said local cops as FBI officials painted the attack as domestic terror. The shooter, who was not from the Orlando area, may have had “leanings” toward radical Islam, Special Agent Danny Banks revealed.

Cops killed the lone gunman and and found multiple victims dead inside the Pulse nightclub, about four hours after the closing time bloodbath sparked a tense standoff with police.

Police bombarded the club with a “controlled explosion” to distract the shooter and rescue about 30 hostages hiding in bathrooms. Nine officers fatally shot at the suspect armed with an assault-type rifle, a handgun and “some type of device.”

A bullet struck an officer’s Kevlar helmet that police Chief John Mina cited for saving the cop’s life during the gun battle.

An officer working at the nightclub was first to confront the unidentified shooter outside the club as about 320 people partied inside. The attacker moved his assault indoors, opened fire and took hostages as terrified club goers fled.

The shooting happened during Pride Month, a national LGBT celebration honoring the Stonewall riots in 1969. The club hosted a “Latin Night” on Saturday, according to its Facebook page…

Terrorist Omar Mateen, 29, Was Investigated by FBI

Omar Mateen, a 29-year-old U.S.-born citizen from Port St. Lucie, Fla., has been identified as the suspect in Sunday’s mass shooting that left at least 50 dead and more than 50 others wounded at Pulse, a “gay” nightclub in Orlando, Florida.

Mateen was an active security officer and held state firearms licenses, according to Florida records. Marriage records show he was married to a New Jersey woman originally from Uzbekistan in Port St. Lucie in 2009.

Mateen, who was born in New York to Afghan parents, came to the attention of federal authorities in 2013 and 2014, a senior law-enforcement source told the Daily Beast.

The FBI at one point opened an investigation into Mateen but subsequently closed the case.

“He’s a known quantity,” the source told the Daily Beast. “He’s been on the radar before.”

Why Trump Must Not Apologize

A Commentary By Patrick J. Buchanan

“Never retreat. Never explain. Get it done and let them howl.”

Donald Trump has internalized the maxim Benjamin Jowett gave to his students at Balliol who would soon be running the empire.

And in rejecting demands that he apologize for his remarks about the La Raza judge presiding over the class-action suit against Trump University, the Donald is instinctively correct

Assume, as we must, that Trump believes what he said.

Why, then, should he apologize for speaking the truth, as he sees it?

To do so would be to submit to extortion, to recant, to confess to a sin he does not believe he committed. It would be to capitulate to pressure, to tell a lie to stop the beating, to grovel before the Inquisition of Political Correctness.

Trump is cheered today because he defies the commands of political correctness, and, to the astonishment of enemies and admirers alike, he gets away with it.

To the establishment, Trump is thus a far greater menace than Bernie Sanders, who simply wants to push his soak-the-rich party a little further in the direction of Robin Hood and his Merry Men.

But Trump, with his defiant refusal to apologize for remarks about “rapists” among illegal immigrants from Mexico, and banning Muslims, is doing something far more significant.

He is hurling his “Non serviam!” in the face of the establishment. He is declaring: “I reject your moral authority. You have no right to sit in judgment of me. I will defy any moral sanction you impose, and get away with it. And my people will stand by me.”

Trump’s rebellion is not only against the Republican elite but against the establishment’s claim to define what is right and wrong, true and false, acceptable and unacceptable, in this republic.

Contrast Trump with Paul Ryan, who has buckled pathetically. …

These Republicans seem to believe that, if or when Trump goes down, this whole unfortunate affair will be over, and they can go back to business as usual.

Sorry, but there is no going back.

The nationalist resistance to the invasion across our Southern border and the will to preserve the unique character of America are surging, and they have their counterparts all across Europe. People sense that the fate and future of the West are in the balance.

While Trump defies political correctness here, in Europe one can scarcely keep track of the anti-EU and anti-immigrant nationalist and separatist parties sprouting up from the Atlantic to the Urals.

Call it identity politics, call it tribalism, call it ethnonationalism; it and Islamism are the two most powerful forces on earth.

A decade ago, if one spoke other than derisively of parties like the National Front in France, the blacklisters would come around. Now, the establishments in the West are on the defensive — when they are not openly on the run.

The day of the Bilderberger is over.

Back to Jowett. When the British were serenely confident in the superiority of their tribe, faith, culture and civilization, they went out and conquered and ruled and remade the world, and for the better.

When they embraced the guilt-besotted liberalism that James Burnham called the “ideology of Western suicide,” it all came down.

Media-Darling Muslim Selfie Girl: ‘Hitler Left Some Jews So We’D Know Why He Killed Them’

A Muslim girl who took a “defiant” selfie at an anti-Islam protest in Belgium allegedly posted anti-Semitic comments on her Twitter, Facebook, and accounts, according to a Belgian former soldier and a leading Dutch website.

But web sleuths have now claimed that Ms. Belkhiri’s “peace sign” in the picture is perhaps out of character for her. They claim she tweeted in 2012: “Hitler didnt kill all the jews, he left some. So we [would] know why he was killing them”…

Germany: Politically Correct Schoolgirls Cover Up Their Own Sex Attacks at Hands of Migrants

Three teenage girls colluded to cover up sex assaults against them because they felt bad for their attackers and didn’t want to see them “discriminated against”.

Pupils at the Herder school in Kassel, Germany have been subjected to months of sexual assault by “much older” migrant males on their way to and from school, dating back as far as September 2015. The three girls aged between 16 and 18 were repeatedly touched inappropriately and verbally abused, but they refused to report the incidents to the police or their school because the perpetrators were “refugees”.

German newspaper the Hessian Niedersächsische Allgemeine reports the girls realised the “social-political” implications of their reporting their crimes, with the significant amount of press attention swirling around migrant sex assault, leading to them becoming what the paper identified as “paralysed by political correctness”.

A Suicide Pact With Ourselves Political Correctness — A Little Song, A Little Dance

[…] One of my favorite Bolsheviks is the young Trotsky who invented the term “politically correct’’as in all good Bolsheviks must be politically correct in the thoughts of Lenin. Note to letter writers, Trotsky, get it? Let’s further romp through history where all the good little Germans had to be politically correct in the thoughts of the Fuhrer and lest we forget the great Helmsman, the Little Red Book shakers. You kids all remember the Red Guard, everybody was lockstep in their thinking.

We have seen this performance before in history where no one dares to speak out. We all must think in the same manner and we all must be politically correct.

Today, political correctness is destroying big media, corporate America and the lives of a number of politicians.

Not to mention Common Core and what all your kids and grandkids are learning in school.

If you notice, the letter writers never said one thing about what I wrote but only that I was a drunk and a trash heap and a member of ISIL.

I did however get a couple of letters from pretty good historians who told me to keep up the good work.

When the left can control the language, as Orwell teaches us with Big Brother, false accusations can be made and charges rendered. We can now expect to have nursery rhymes, instead of ‘“Baa Baa Black Sheep,’’ changed to “Baa Baa Rainbow Sheep.” Remember there’s no such thing as black coffee now. …

So really what is the purpose of political correctness in our society today? One of my favorite people, Pat Buchanan, charges political correctness is cultural Marxism. I can’t argue with that.

We now face a modern inquisition. And punish people who are not politically correct in the thoughts of the progressive left.

To all of you, you better stand to. Dietrich Bonhoeffer was right, they will come for you.

So I’d like to thank you on the behalf of the ‘“old drunk’“ and dumpster diver and member of ISIL. You people scare the hell out of me. The time will come, as John Gotti said headed to the penitentiary, you’re gonna wish I was back.

Ben Carson on Orlando Attack: ‘They Hate Gay People’

In the wake of the largest terror attack in the U.S. since the 9/11 onslaught in 2001, former Republican presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson said Sunday morning’s shooting in Orlando, Florida, at a “gay” nightclub is a reminder of the animosity Muslims have for homosexuals.

“This incident took place at a gay bar,” Carson stressed to Fox News. “Many people on the left need to understand … they hate gay people. … These people need to be looking at that for their own survival … to be so ideologically driven that they can’t see that is problematic.”

Child Molestation and the Homosexual Movement

Regent University Law Review 2001-2002 by Steve Baldwin

[WARNING: ** Disturbing Content **]

Scientific studies confirm a strong pedophilic predisposition among homosexuals. Family Research Institute founder and psychologist Paul Cameron, reviewing more than nineteen different academic reports and peer reviewed studies in a 1985 Psychological Reports article, found that homosexuals account for between 25% and 40% of all child molestation.

Sex researchers Freund, Heasman, Racansky, and Glancy, for example, in an 1984 Journal of Sex and Marital Therapy article, put the number at 36%. Erickson, Walbek, Sely, in a 1988 Archives of Sexual Behavior article, places it at 86% when the children being molested are male.

However, it should be noted that homosexuals account for only 2% of the population which statistically means that a child molester is ten to twenty times more likely to be homosexual than heterosexual. In other words, heterosexual molestations proportionally are a fraction compared to homosexual molestations. More recent studies confirm this statistic. In 2000, the Archives of Sexual Behavior published an article by seven sex researchers concluding that “around 25-40% of men attracted to children prefer boys. Thus the rate of homosexual attraction is 6-20 times higher among pedophiles.

Sexual violence expert and professor of psychiatry Eugene Abel, in a 1987 study published by the Journal of Interpersonal Violence, concluded that homosexuals sexually molest young boys with an incidence that is five times greater than the molestation of girls…

In a 1992 study published in the Journal of Sex and Marital Therapy, sex researchers K. Freud and R. I. Watson found that homosexual males are three times more likely than straight men to engage in pedophilia and that the average pedophile victimizes between 20 and 150 boys before being arrested…

This type of behavior, however, is considered normal in psychiatric circles due to the influence of homosexual psychiatrists within the American Psychological Association. It is the homosexual caucus within that body that pushed to rewrite the diagnostic criteria for pedophilia. The new definition defines sex with children as a psychological disorder only if it causes “clinically significant distress” for the molester! Under that definition, most molesters are perfectly normal people!

  1. Policeman killed in Paris

    The policeman was not wearing a uniform when attacked on his way home in the outskirts of Paris, in the Yvelines, tonight. The unidentified killer stabbed him to death in the policeman’s home.

    The killer then took hostages, presumably the policeman’s family.

    The body of a woman was later found. A three year old boy was found unharmed.

  2. “He was a person filled with hate”–Obama.

    Well excuse me, but isn’t that typical of moslems, they tell us repeatedly that they hate us, and everything to do with us? (but love our money and accomplishments, our guns, cars, women, and a million other things)

    Obama of course has it intentionally dead wrong. We need to get rid of moslems, not guns. (and Obama)
