Gates of Vienna News Feed 11/6/2016

Christian residents of an Iraqi town near Mosul that has just been freed from the grip of the Islamic State are hoping that Donald Trump will be elected president of the USA. The townspeople of Qaraqosh feel that President Barack Obama has abandoned them, and is hostile to Christians in the Middle East.

In other news, a new report in Britain says that social services and the schools are under increasing pressure from illegal adult immigrants that enter the UK while pretending to be children.

The Budget and Italy’s Pensions

Bill seeks to spur early retirement

(ANSA) — Rome, November 4 — The Italian government’s economic team, led by Tommaso Nannicini, released a 32-page document on Friday to explain how retirement will change based on provisions in the country’s 2017 budget bill.

Here is a simplified overview of the measures:

– VOLUNTARY EARLY RETIREMENT: Can be requested at 63 years of age and 20 years of contributions; is a loan until retirement age for which the cost is borne by the worker. The rate on net pension for each year of early retirement can reach up to 5.5% of the retirement once retirement age is reached. The loan must be paid back within 20 years. In the event of premature death, insurance covers the cost. There are no cuts for pension transfer to a spouse upon death, nor is any collateral required to secure the loan. On a net pension of 1,286 euros per month and a request of 85%, the rate for three years of early retirement should be 208 euros (there are tax breaks) for 13 months.

– SOCIAL EARLY RETIREMENT: The needy can request a social early retirement at 63 years old and 30 years of contributions if unemployed or disabled (with a disability level of at least 74%) and 36 years of contributions if involved in particularly onerous activities (for at least six years). INPS social security agency sends a direct money transfer equal to the pension amount certified at the time of the request (but for 12 months) if less than 1,500 euros gross. The payment is taxed as dependent work and therefore the net amount is greater than an equivalent pension. According to an example in the tables contained in the government’s document, with a gross pension of 1,000 euros (865 euros net), the net earnings bridge is 899 euros.

– COMPANY EARLY RETIREMENT: The requirements are the same as those of the voluntary early retirement (63 years of age and 20 years of contributions) as well as the base financial conditions, but the contribution is disbursed by the company in order to lower the rate on the future pension at the time of retirement age. With a gross monthly pension of 1,000 euros, an early retirement requested at 95% of the net pension and a three-year advance, the company contribution would total 43,505 euros. The contribution would increase to 70,283 euros in the case of a gross pension of 1,615 euros (net 1,286 euros).

– TEMPORARY INTEGRATIVE INCOME (RITA): As an early retirement part or all of the accumulated capital can be used to obtain a monthly income for up to 36 months prior to retirement age.

Taxation is between 9% and 15%. With an accumulated capital of 27,539 euros (98 euros a month to receive starting at retirement age) the worker can decide whether to use the money for a year of RITA advance (1,950 euros a month), for two years (975 per month), or three years (650 euros a month). — EARLY WORKERS: For those who deposited at least 12 months of contributions prior to 19 years of age, penalties are eliminated on retirement for those who retire before 62 years old.

Retirement can be requested with 41 years of contributions if unemployed, disabled, or if work performed was particularly onerous or strenuous, including nursing and obstetric shift work as well as nursery school teaching.

– NO-TAX AREA EXTENDED: The earnings range for non-taxable income is extended to 8,125 euros annually, including for retirees with less than 75 years of age.

– INCREASE AND EXTENSION OF ‘FOURTEENTH-MONTH SALARY’: For retirees with a total personal income less than two times the minimum (2,125,000 pensioners up to 1.5 times the minimum, 1,250,000 between 1.5 and 2 times the minimum). Those who have income up to 1.5 times the minimum (about 750 euros) who now receive variable amounts between 336 and 504 euros in a one-time payment, according to the contributions paid, will have a 30% increase (the 14th-month will be between 437 and 655 euro once a year). Those with incomes between 1.5 and 2 times the minimum (between 750 and 1,000 euros) will have a 14th-month payment for the first time, but with the prior amounts.

A New Viral Rap Song That Encourages the Assassination of Donald Trump and Calls for Riots if He Wins the Presidency is Being Celebrated by the Music Media.

Entitled ‘F**k Donald Trump’, the track was performed live in front of 20,000 people at the Coachella music festival this past weekend by hip-hop artists YG and Nipsey Hussle.

The lyrics for the song openly invoke death threats against Trump and vow to stage violence if he takes the Oval Office.

Here are some choice excerpts;…

[Comment: Rap industry was subverted long ago by the puppet masters. All it does now is promote the gangster culture to young black men as if that is aspirational. Many of these rappers sold out their souls for cash and fame and are selling lies to their fellow blacks. ]

Citizen Journalists Crack Pedophile Code

Dark Clinton secrets exposed to public

Alex Jones explains how Reddit users have cracked the pedophile codes in Podesta’s emails made public by WikiLeaks.

Reddit users have broken the code which law enforcement believes is connected to sex trafficking, but it needs to be clear that not all the things being talked about have been confirmed to be a code. At the very least, however, independent researchers on Reddit are on to something strange.

Clinton Directed Her Maid to Print Out Classified Materials

How is this not a clear violation of the law?

As secretary of state, Hillary Clinton routinely asked her maid to print out sensitive government e-mails and documents — including ones containing classified information — from her house in Washington, DC, e-mails and FBI memos show. But the housekeeper lacked the security clearance to handle such material.

In fact, Marina Santos was called on so frequently to receive e-mails that she may hold the secrets to E-mailgate — if only the FBI and Congress would subpoena her and the equipment she used.

How Far Will Dems Go to Steal Election 2016?

The events of Friday and Saturday should be sending chills down the spines of average citizens IF, as U.S. Intelligence is warning, al Qaeda strikes with terrorist attacks in three states tomorrow and ISIS follows through on its threats to slaughters voters going to the polls on Tuesday.

Last night, Austyn Daniel Crites, 33, of Reno, Nevada self-identified as a member of ‘Republicans Against Trump’ in an incident that saw Secret Service agents hustling the ‘Make America Great Again’ candidate off the stage, in what many see as a dry-run for his assassination.

Our Last Chance for Saving Our Republic

At the end of the Constitutional Convention Benjamin Franklin was asked if we had a Republic or a monarchy. His response was “A Republic if you can keep it.” There are many things involved with a Constitutional Republic that can only be described as built-in destruction. What our Founders gave us was a government that actually required men of character to be in places of authority for it to be successful…

The inner circle of the Clinton campaign is about as bizarre as it can get. Her personal aid, Humma Abidin, is married to a pervert, Anthony Weiner and her campaign manager, John Podesta, seems to be interested in strange occults. He was invited, according to emails hacked by Wikileaks, to a ‘Spirit Cooking’ dinner: “Spirit cooking is also an “occult practice used during sex cult rituals, as explained in the book “Spirit cooking with essential aphrodisiac recipes,” notes Mike Cernovich.

The revelation that John Podesta, Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman, is presumably interested in weird, gory occult ceremonies was too juicy for even Wikileaks to ignore.

“The Podestas’ “Spirit Cooking” dinner? It’s not what you think. It’s blood, sperm and breastmilk. But mostly blood,” the organization tweeted.”[1] We need to be very careful of who we put into places of authority. The people that surround Hillary Clinton have all seemed to have extremely questionable character. New Wikileaks emails link the Clinton Foundation to child trafficking from Haiti. Laura Silsby was the former director of The New Life Children’s Refuge that was stopped at the Haitian and Dominican Republic border with 33 children that they claimed were all orphans. None of the children had any kind of papwork or documentation necessary for crossing borders or identification. Silsby and her cohorts tried to say that they were taking the children to a set up an orphanage.

After authorities investigated they realized that none of these children were orphans and that Silsby and her accomplices had stolen them during the chaos after the earthquake.

The story starts to get interesting after the Clinton Foundation helped Silsby and her accomplices out of trouble with the law on the means that they were doing “missionary” work.

The lawyer that represented Silsby and her accomplices was none other than a convicted human trafficker himself, one Jorge Puello Torres.

The story gets even more interesting after Huma Abedin emailed Hillary Clinton directly several times regarding Silsby and the “missionaries” that were arrested in Haiti.”[2] You can research the references to the child trafficking via Wikileaks releases this week.[3]

The Biggest Supermoon Since Israel Became a Nation in 1948 Will Happen 6 Days After the Election

On November 14th, something extraordinary is going to happen. On that date we will witness the closest full moon that we have seen since 1948. Known as a “ supermoon” , this full moon will happen just six days after the U.S. presidential election. If you look up into the night sky on November 14th, you will notice that the moon appears to be much bigger and much brighter than usual. Could it be possible that there is some special meaning to the biggest supermoon in almost 70 years? The last time we witnessed a supermoon of this size Israel become a nation, and as you will see below, many believe that the last couple months of 2016 could have historic significance for the Jewish people as well.

Do you remember ever seeing the moon so big in the sky that you felt that you could almost reach up and grab it? Well, on the 14th you may feel that way again. According to CNN, supermoons typically “ appear to be 14% bigger and 30% brighter than other full moons” .

And without a doubt, what we are about to witness is an extremely rare event. The last time that a supermoon was this close to our planet was in 1948, and it won’ t happen again until 2034…

Three Killed, Three Injured in ‘Savage’ Stabbing at Newark Home

A stabbing at a Newark, N.J., home left three people dead — including two children — and three more injured Saturday afternoon, authorities said.

The young girl, 8, and boy, 11, were killed by a blade-wielding attacker at a home along Hedden Terrace near W. Runyon St. around 4 p.m. It’s not clear what prompted the attack.

Cops found the wounded and one victim already dead on the second floor. Many of them were related, officials said.

A 23-year-old woman also died in the deadly assault.

“I didn’t know what happened until I saw them bringing the kids outside — on stretchers,” neighbor Maye Singleton told while gathered outside the crime scene…

Trump’s Contract With the American Voter

Donald Trump’s Contract With The American Voter is exactly what President Trump will do. It will reconstruct the hearth and soul of our Great nation. It will reverse the great calamities impacting millions of Americans.

Everyone who reads the Contract will find themselves in it. Please share this article with your perplexed friends. It is all they need to know to be comfortable when they vote on Tuesday.


“Therefore, on the first day of my term of office, my administration will immediately pursue the following six measures to clean up the corruption and special interest collusion in Washington, DC:

* FIRST, propose a Constitutional Amendment to impose term limits on all members of Congress; * SECOND, a hiring freeze on all federal employees to reduce federal workforce through attrition (exempting military, public safety, and public health); * THIRD, a requirement that for every new federal regulation, two existing regulations must be eliminated; * FOURTH, a 5 year-ban on White House and Congressional officials becoming lobbyists after they leave government service; * FIFTH, a lifetime ban on White House officials lobbying on behalf of a foreign government; * SIXTH, a complete ban on foreign lobbyists raising money for American elections.

On the same day, I will begin taking the following seven actions to protect American workers:

* FIRST, I will announce my intention to renegotiate NAFTA or withdraw from the deal under Article 2205 * SECOND, I will announce our withdrawal from the Trans-Pacific Partnership * THIRD, I will direct my Secretary of the Treasury to label China a currency manipulator * FOURTH, I will direct the Secretary of Commerce and U.S. Trade Representative to identify all foreign trading abuses that unfairly impact American workers and direct them to use every tool under American and international law to end those abuses immediately * FIFTH, I will lift the restrictions on the production of $50 trillion dollars’ worth of job-producing American energy reserves, including shale, oil, natural gas and clean coal. * SIXTH, lift the Obama-Clinton roadblocks and allow vital energy infrastructure projects, like the Keystone Pipeline, to move forward * SEVENTH, cancel billions in payments to U.N. climate change programs and use the money to fix America’s water and environmental infrastructure

Additionally, on the first day, I will take the following five actions to restore security and the constitutional rule of law:

* FIRST, cancel every unconstitutional executive action, memorandum and order issued by President Obama * SECOND, begin the process of selecting a replacement for Justice Scalia from one of the 20 judges on my list, who will uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States * THIRD, cancel all federal funding to Sanctuary Cities * FOURTH, begin removing the more than 2 million criminal illegal immigrants from the country and cancel visas to foreign countries that won’t take them back * FIFTH, suspend immigration from terror-prone regions where vetting cannot safely occur. All vetting of people coming into our country will be considered extreme vetting.

Next, I will work with Congress to introduce the following broader legislative measures and fight for their passage within the first 100 days of my Administration:

1. Middle Class Tax Relief And Simplification Act. An economic plan designed to grow the economy 4% per year and create at least 25 million new jobs through massive tax reduction and simplification, in combination with trade reform, regulatory relief, and lifting the restrictions on American energy. The largest tax reductions are for the middle class. A middle-class family with 2 children will get a 35% tax cut. The current number of brackets will be reduced from 7 to 3, and tax forms will likewise be greatly simplified. The business rate will be lowered from 35 to 15 percent, and the trillions of dollars of American corporate money overseas can now be brought back at a 10 percent rate.

2. End The Offshoring Act Establishes tariffs to discourage companies from laying off their workers in order to relocate in other countries and ship their products back to the U.S. tax-free.

3. American Energy & Infrastructure Act. Leverages public-private partnerships, and private investments through tax incentives, to spur $1 trillion in infrastructure investment over 10 years. It is revenue neutral.

4. School Choice And Education Opportunity Act. Redirects education dollars to gives parents the right to send their kid to the public, private, charter, magnet, religious or home school of their choice. Ends common core, brings education supervision to local communities. It expands vocational and technical education, and make 2 and 4-year college more affordable.

5. Repeal and Replace Obamacare Act. Fully repeals Obamacare and replaces it with Health Savings Accounts, the ability to purchase health insurance across state lines, and lets states manage Medicaid funds. Reforms will also include cutting the red tape at the FDA: there are over 4,000 drugs awaiting approval, and we especially want to speed the approval of life-saving medications.

6. Affordable Childcare and Eldercare Act. Allows Americans to deduct childcare and elder care from their taxes, incentivizes employers to provide on-site childcare services, and creates tax-free Dependent Care Savings Accounts for both young and elderly dependents, with matching contributions for low-income families.

7. End Illegal Immigration Act Fully-funds the construction of a wall on our southern border with the full understanding that the country Mexico will be reimbursing the United States for the full cost of such wall; establishes a 2-year mandatory minimum federal prison sentence for illegally re-entering the U.S. after a previous deportation, and a 5-year mandatory minimum for illegally re-entering for those with felony convictions, multiple misdemeanor convictions or two or more prior deportations; also reforms visa rules to enhance penalties for overstaying and to ensure open jobs are offered to American workers first.

8. Restoring Community Safety Act. Reduces surging crime, drugs and violence by creating a Task Force On Violent Crime and increasing funding for programs that train and assist local police; increases resources for federal law enforcement agencies and federal prosecutors to dismantle criminal gangs and put violent offenders behind bars. Subscribe to NewsWithViews Daily Email Alerts Email Address * First Name *required field

9. Restoring National Security Act. Rebuilds our military by eliminating the defense sequester and expanding military investment; provides Veterans with the ability to receive public VA treatment or attend the private doctor of their choice; protects our vital infrastructure from cyber-attack; establishes new screening procedures for immigration to ensure those who are admitted to our country support our people and our values

10. Clean up Corruption in Washington Act. Enacts new ethics reforms to Drain the Swamp and reduce the corrupting influence of special interests on our politics.

On November 8th, Americans will be voting for this 100-day plan to restore prosperity to our economy, security to our communities, and honesty to our government.

Trump Hustled Off Stage in Security Scare

Donald Trump was rushed off stage by the Secret Service during a rally in Reno, Nevada, when a disturbance broke out in the crowd close to the podium.

The Republican presidential nominee was removed mid-speech at around 9 p.m. ET. He looked into the crowd, his hand over his eyes to block the glare from the stage lights, when two Secret Service agents suddenly grabbed him and hustled him away.

Several members of the crowd described seeing a man, later identified as 33-year-old Austyn Crites, rushing toward the stage.

“It was like he was running forward to get to the front,” said a man who declined to give his name. “He was saying ‘excuse me, excuse me’, working his way to the front.” One woman, who gave her name as Lauren, said she saw the same man looking “wild eyed,” according to the London Guardian.

A scuffle could be seen breaking out in the audience, and the Secret Service, local police and bystanders wrestled Crites to the ground.

“I saw a man to my right and then it looked like a fight broke out,” said Michael Newton, 45, who helped detain the man. “There were four or five guys on top of him. Then the people on top of him shouted ‘ he’s got a gun, he’s got a gun.” That’s when I also jumped on top of him to help; we were all shouting to alert the Secret Service.”

One eyewitness said he believed a tightly folded poster had been misidentified as a firearm, reported the Guardian.

[Comment: Useful idiot worming his way to the front with a tightly roled poster. This was a “dry run” to test the security around Trump. Likely the useful idiot has no clue of the bigger picture and was just instructed how to “disrupt” the event.]

Trump Threat in Reno — More Than Meets the Eye?

While speaking at a campaign event in Reno, Nevada at approximately 6:30 PM PT, Republican Presidential nominee Donald Trump was rushed offstage by members of the United States Secret Service due to a perceived threat near the front of the stage. However, a more extensive review of other footage available shows a bit more than is being reported.

While all eyes were on the front of the stage, trouble appeared to begin about 30 seconds earlier by at least one person at the rear of the crowd, not readily visible to those tuned in to the live streaming. Almost immediately, police and security from the rear of the room began making their way to the disturbance several rows in from the rear of the crowd.

Just then, Donald Trump appeared to stop his speech and shielded his eyes from the lights, looking toward the crowd. Although it cannot be verified, it appeared that Mr. Trump was looking at the initial altercation and not at the events unfolding nearest the stage.

Within seconds, United States Secret Service agents rushed to Trump and escorted him off stage. During this time, two agents from the Secret Service and at least one bystander subdued a Caucasian male, Austyn Crites, 33, wrestling him to the floor close to the stage after someone reportedly yelled that they saw him with a gun. At this time, however, no gun was observed or found…

What is significant to note is that while everyone is reporting on the “main event,” nothing is being mentioned about the disturbance at the rear of the room. If the two incidents are proved to be related, this is alarmingly similar to the tactics identified in the Project Veritas videos, as detailed by outed political strategist and alleged professional disrupter for the Democratic Party Robert Creamer.

Viewers of the Project Veritas videos will recall Creamer’s detailed plans of placing paid disrupters in front and back of the room to exacerbate the confusion and disruption. These tactics were explained by Creamer and others who admitted paying individuals to disrupt Trump events.

Canadian Parliament Passes Anti-Islamophobia Motion

Islamophobia is a trumped-up term designed to further an agenda, as indicated by Abdur-Rahman Muhammad, a former member of the International Institute for Islamic Thought, who was there at the inception of the term:

This loathsome term is nothing more than a thought-terminating cliche conceived in the bowels of Muslim think tanks for the purpose of beating down critics. The Canadian Parliament has now passed an “anti-Islamophobia” motion, “amid increasing attacks on mosques and Muslim communities in the country and throughout the world.” This is beyond bizarre, considering the truth about attacks throughout the world. Such attacks are most commonly on Christians by Muslims; against Muslims by Muslims, against apostates and infidels by Muslims. Add to that the jihad attacks in Europe and the rampant sex assaults and crimes by Muslims upon innocents. As for attacks against Muslims on Western soil, they remain very low. A much greater problem tabulated in hate crime statistics is against blacks and Jews.

Canada is slipping down a dangerous slope. The government and Islamic supremacists have now partnered to attempt to silence anyone who criticizes Islam. The Canadian anti-Islamophobia motion resembles a kind of blasphemy law in favor of one preferred religion above all others in Canada; one may be persecuted for expressing any criticism of Islam even when warranted. Yet despite its ominous implications, the anti-Islamophobia motion received little media attention. Interestingly, that includes the leftist media; and the Huffington Post article expressed its disapproval:

Italy Leads 2016 Wine Imports to Canada

Ambassador Cornado in Montreal on tour of 500 wine labels

(ANSA) — New York, November 4 — Italy is in first place in 2016 for quantity of wine imported to Canada, with over 50 million liters, and in second after the United States for total value, with over 300 million Canadian dollars’ worth of wine imported, according to Italian Ambassador to Canada Gian Lorenzo Cornado, speaking from Montreal on the final stop of the ‘Great Tastings in Canada 2016’ initiative.

The tour is the Italian Foreign Trade Institute’s (ICE) most important event dedicated to Italian wine in Canada, with stops in four cities for a “coast to coast” tour.

After starting in Vancouver on the Pacific Ocean, the tour stopped in Calgary in the province of Alberta, then moved to Toronto and finally Montreal in the country’s east, involving thousands of importers, industry journalists and sector opinion leaders.

More than 500 labels were present in the tour, coming from 102 different Italian producers across 14 regions, attracted by a continually growing market.

Cornado said the market is destined to grow, especially in light of the Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA) between the European Union and Canada signed on October 30.

Italian Consul General in Montreal Riccardo Rusconi said that Quebec in particular has a historical propensity for wine culture, especially high-level wines.

That propensity is driving ICE collateral events, such as wine tastings and seminars by Italian enologists to educate young Canadian sommeliers about Italian wine, organised by ICE Toronto Director Pasquale Bova.

20 Islamist Infiltrators Exposed in German Army — Reports

The German military has uncovered dozens of soldiers with Islamist leanings that joined the army to receive rigorous training in weapons systems and tactics in hopes of using it for future terror attacks, both at home and abroad, local media report. Germany’s Military Counterintelligence Service, MAD, has identified 20 active-duty soldiers as Islamists, and 60 others were put on a surveillance list for having extremist views, Die Welt reported on Saturday.

The agency said the Islamist infiltrators are particularly interested in advanced weapons and tactical training that could be useful when carrying out future attacks in Germany or abroad.

Recruitment offices across the country have reported “individual inquiries from applicants who are eager to join the Bundeswehr [the German military] for only a few months and are explicitly interested in intensive weapons and equipment training,” MAD noted.

Iraqi Christians Welcome Trump After Obama Abandoned Them Following ISIS Terror

The Christian community in the latest Iraqi town to be freed from ISIS have opened up about how they were terrorised at the hands of the twisted jihadi militants.

The once-bustling Qaraqosh, which boasted of more than 50,000 Christian residents, was recaptured from the jihadis last week.

Residents who stayed in the town have described how ISIS told every Christian to pay a massive tax, convert to Islam or face execution.

Those who survived the terror have now voiced their outrage that President Obama refused to protect them when Iraq’s largest Christian city fell to ISIS more than two years ago.

A man in the village said he hopes Donald Trump- a widely favoured candidate in the town — will bring a different approach to Iraqi Christians.

He told the camera: “Obama has never helped the Christians. In fact, he despises them. In the last 26 months, he has shown he despises all of them.

“But we have hope in the new president, Trump.”…

UK Military Intelligence Issues Warning Over Russian Supertank Threat

British military intelligence has issued a warning over a ground-breaking tank being developed by Russia, according to a leaked document seen by The Telegraph.

The Ministry of Defence internal briefing paper raises doubts over the UK’s ability to combat the threat posed by the Kremlin’s new Armata tank.

It also questions why the Government has no plans for a rival tank for at least 20 years.

The internal document, written by a senior Army intelligence officer, states: “Without hyperbole, Armata represents the most revolutionary step change in tank design in the last half century.”

Amnesty Migrant-Abuse Report ‘False’ — Italian Ministry

Morcone says document compiled in London, not Italy

(ANSAmed) — ROME, NOVEMBER 3 — A senior interior ministry official on Thursday denied allegations of beatings, abuse and illegal expulsions at asylum-seeeker hotspots in Italy in a report by Amnesty International. “It is totally false that the police use violence on migrants,” said Prefect Mario Morcone, the head of the interior ministry’s migration department. “I was disconcerted to read such stupidity. Amnesty compiles its reports in London, not in Italy”.

Hillary Amnesty Tax: $15,000 Per Household

(Washington Examiner) Amnesty for illegal immigrants like a program proposed by Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton would require an immediate tax hike of $1.2 trillion, a $15,000 hit on every household in America, according to a new analysis of immigration reform.

The authoritative National Academy of Sciences said the cost to give some 11 million illegals citizenship rights would be staggering, though it suggested long-term benefits.

A Heritage Foundation analysis of the NAS study looked at just the impact amnesty would have and said that an immediate tax increase of $1.29 trillion would be needed to finance the infrastructure, school, welfare and other costs of illegals.

Hungarian Fence Halts Balkan Route

The Hungarian government’s building of a fence along its border with Serbia-and its assistance to other states in building similar fences-has all but halted the Balkans route nonwhite invasion of Europe. As a result, the number of Third World invaders crossing into Austria from Hungary has plummeted to 5,800 this year-compared to 300,000 in 2015.

Third World invaders living in Sweden have blamed whites for the orgy of nonwhite crime in that state, saying that “racism” and “boredom” originating with white people is the cause of their unrest. “We take out our frustration by destroying and vandalizing,” and it “felt good to burn cars,” nonwhites were quoted as saying, by media.

UK: Hundreds of Children ‘Brainwashed’ To Appear in Pro-Refugee Video, Blasts Critics

HUNDREDS of children, many of whom appear to be of primary school age, have appeared in a series of pro-refugee videos which critics have branded as “brainwashing”.

Furious parents took to social media to express their concern about the social media campaign, #StandUpForThe387, which is being co-ordinated by Citizens UK, a charity whose campaigns also include the Living Wage. One disgruntled social media user wrote: “Kids at those age are like sponges. It’s almost like schools are brainwashing them in a sense.

H.264 is Magic

H.264 is a video compression codec standard. It is ubiquitous — internet video, Blu-ray, phones, security cameras, drones, everything. Everything uses H.264 now. H.264 is a remarkable piece of technology. It is the result of 30+ years of work with one single goal: To reduce the bandwidth required for transmission of full-motion video. Technically, it is very interesting. This post will give insight into some of the details at a high level — I hope to not bore you too much with the intricacies. Also note that many of the concepts explained here apply to video compression in general, and not just H.264.

  1. “Hungarian Fence Halts Balkan Route”

    Comment: For that, Hungary deserves our thanks.

    • Wolf howl. 🙂

      (For those who don’t know, the Hungarians are sometimes called the “wolf people” of Europe. The crown of St. Stephen may be the national symbol, but the symbol of the people is often considered to be the wolf’s paw, also known as Chinese cloud, sometimes seen in arty things. It’s ancient. Give it a good thousand years.)

      • PS: There are other “wolf people.” If I recall correctly at least one Native American tribe is considered “the wolf people” of North America.

      • Very interesting, I did not know that. But independent from this the wolf is my favorite wild animal. I guess unconsciously I identified with them. Fierce to protect its own pack, hunt together… What not to like?!

  2. Baron I would appreciate it if you or a GOV reader could help me understand why Obama is able to use Air Force 1 while campaigning for Clinton, as I saw him do in Florida (I think) the other day.

    Is this not an abuse of state resources? And not illegal in terms of your election process?

    • During his eight years in office, Mr. Obama changed the rules, so that whatever the Executive decides, is prima facie legal. By acquiescing in this abomination, Congress enabled our final transition from a republic to despotic rule.

      Now the president is like a czar issuing ukases, or a pope issuing bulls. What he decrees is the law. If he orders Air Force One to be used for campaigning, then it’s legal to use Air Force One for campaigning. If he says men wearing women’s clothes must be allowed to use women’s restrooms, then that must be legal, too.

      I’ve been quoting this passage from Catch-22 a lot lately:

      “‘Catch-22,’ the old woman repeated, rocking her head up and down. ‘Catch-22. Catch-22 says they have a right to do anything we can’t stop them from doing.'”

      • Thank you Baron for clearing that up.

        I hope common sense prevails in the States and that that Nasty Woman does not get elected.

  3. By acquiescing in this abomination, Congress enabled our final transition from a republic to despotic rule.

    I am not aware that congress acquiesced to this. It has long been the practice of sitting presidents to use air force one for campaigning as long as they spend a few minutes meeting with other elected officials in the same town, therefore calling their travel “business.”
    Possibly, the HRC campaign is reimbursing the costs, I don’t know.
    I do acknowledge that it is dirty business but I am sure some “work around” was put in place.
    I assure you that if Trump becomes president this will be scrutinized.
    Hey, he is repub. Can’t have him jetting around on the taxpayers dime!

    • I don’t mean just that particular act — I mean the many more significant things that Obama has done with “a pen and a phone”. Congress failed to act to stop him, nor did it impeach him for his actions.

      Our disgusting legislators have been reduced to suing the president. Suing! As if they had no other recourse. They went cap in hand to the judicial branch, tugged their collective forelock, and said, “Please, sir, stop him from doing these things.”

      It’s appalling. It’s disgusting. I don’t have adequate words to express my revulsion for the U.S. Congress, especially the Republicans.

    • It’s a good example of Congressional obtuseness. They simply don’t “know” that there’s such a device known as apportioning cost. They can’t see it.

      A few minutes of government business and, of course, the entire cost of the trip is borne by the taxpayer. What other way to do it could there be? One of life’s mysteries.

      It’s like government shutdowns. The iron rule is that Republicans cave in to Obama spending demands the instant that fencing goes up at the WWII Memorial to “close” it. They “know” that no principled case can be made, that no line in the sand can be drawn, and that fighting like tigers for fiscal sanity would enrage the peasants.

      “Next time” would be a more propitious time to raise hell when there’s been sufficient time to prepare.

      • I am reminded of an account I read about a tour group of former Marines that got caught up in the whole “Gov’t shutdown”. Which, BTW, only effected about 17% of the gov’t… Yeah, it was a publicity stunt writ large.
        They were on their way to the Iwo Jima memorial when the tour bus driver saw orange water barrels blocking the road. He announced on the mic “brace for impact, we’re going through” and he blasted through the barrier to the memorial!
        God, that did my heart good!
        BTW, did you also know that the Obama admin had all the bathrooms locked and all the trash cans removed on the mall during the “Gov’t shutdown”?

        • Great story.

          The Repugs have only had 40 years to anticipate how budget battles can play out. Every appropriation could be structured so that White House vehicles and food services must be the first things terminated in any government shutdown staring contest instead of access to the Washington Monument. Or a separate bill: The Orderly Shutdown of Government Services and Facilities Act.

          Instead, it’s abject surrender every time. “If you REALLY want the funds, we guess we have to give them to you. Sorry to inconvenience you.”

  4. Do you think you have the right “set of values” for checking in at the Grand Hotel in Stockholm?

    Swedish Democrats (SD) held a gala at the Grand Hotel in Stockholm Friday November 04. In hindsight, the Managing Director realizes they made a terrible mistake welcoming the SD guests to their hotel.

    Managing Director Pia Djupmark actually made every effort possible trying to unbook the SD, which was unsuccessful.

    From now on, however, Pia Djupmark will make sure groups trying to book into the Grand Hotel, carry the
    correct “set of values” approved by herself.

    • The Baron has maintained friendly relations with Sverigedemokraterna members since they sent representatives to the first public Counterjihad Alliance Conference in Brussels in 2007.

      The other political parties in Sweden have been relentless in trying to get rid of them, but SD continues to grow. Even when EXPO was attacking them, they stood firm. When Jimmie Åkesson, the leader of the party, came down with some form of chronic fatigue or fibromyalgia, he had to “retire” for a while in order to recover. I can’t remember if it was he or another member who was physically assaulted but a decade of hatred aimed at him took its toll.

      Extreme left-wing socialists have built a cordon sanitaire around SD in Parliament but it continues to grow. The chaos and anarchy that is the result of Sweden’s ill-advised open-door policy on “Syrians” will no doubt mean some additional growth of SD.

      SD’s experience is more or less the template for nationalist parties in the West. Even here, Hillary has firm plans to rein in nationalism on all fronts should she win the Presidency. If you want a good look at how she’ll do it, read Saul Alinsky…

      “Rules for Radicals” is fascinating. I used to have a copy of the first edition. It’s one of those books that one ought to read since Alinsky is considered a saint among the elite Dems.

      There’s also a 99 cent abridged version by the man himself:

      Thirteen Tactics for Realistic Radicals: from Rules for Radicals (Kindle Single)

      Those links serve our website.

  5. Santos, the maid, printed Her classified documents

    – Would a Philippino president, or some intelligence people of the Philippines, know that this was going on?
