Gates of Vienna News Feed 2/1/2017

Sources in the Trump administration say that the “Countering Violent Extremism” (CVE) program is going to be scrapped. The CVE initiative, the centerpiece of the Muslim Brotherhood-influenced “anti-extremism” efforts under President Obama, will reportedly be changed to “Countering Islamic Extremism”.

In other news, Martin Schulz, the former president of the European Parliament, says that Donald Trump is “un-American”.

China Trade ‘Cost 3.4m US Jobs in 2001-2015’

A yawning trade deficit with China cost 3.4 million US jobs between 2001 and 2015, according to a report published on Tuesday which coincided with abrupt White House efforts to retool trade policy.

Millions of US Jobs Lost to Trade With China, Study Shows

Trade with China has cost the U.S. millions of jobs, a U.S. think tank report suggests.

Between 2001 and 2015, around 3.4 million U.S. jobs, three-fourths of which were in the manufacturing sector, were lost as a result of the trade deficit with China, a report from the left-leaning Economic Policy Institute shows. From the time China joined the World Trade Organization to 2015, the U.S. trade deficit expanded from $83 billion to $367.2 billion.

Jobs have been lost in all 50 states, Robert Scott, the senior economist and director of trade and manufacturing policy research at EPI, revealed in his report.

Rising American dependence on Chinese products coupled with unfair Chinese trading practices have hollowed out the manufacturing sector, the EPI report explains.

Ron Paul Warns: “Second Financial Bubble Going to Burst Soon… Even Trump Can’t Stop it”

If former Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX) is correct, an Economic Doomsday is here. The second financial bubble is going to soon burst, and there’s nothing anyone can do about it. That’s because, as Paul stated, the Federal Reserve has set up the American economy for financial collapse for printing trillions of dollars back in 2008 and 2009.

“The Federal Reserve’s policies of printing trillions of dollars back in ‘08-09 have locked into place a serious financial crisis at some point in our future,” Paul stated. Going so far as to intimate the financial collapse will occur at least some time in the next two years Paul wrote, “It’s unavoidable, and even Donald Trump can’t stop it.”

Paul said Trump will be the patsy for the supposed impending financial ruin. Just like everyone blamed Obama for the financial collapse in 2009, this time, “Trump will unfairly get the blame,” the former Texas representative wrote. Paul bases his comments on reports he says he’s read which concludes that within the next 18-24 months, the collapse will happen.

The former congressman further explained he’s still holding out hope for Trump to make changes which can help to protect America’s future, but pointed out some of Trump’s staff has direct connections to Wall Street. He’s also concerned Trump’s war against radical Islam is a war Trump cannot win because it’s a war against an ideology, much like America’s failed attempt at defeating communism.

Paul believes Trump’s moving in the right direction to protect America’s interests by canceling America’s involvement in the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade agreement with Asia. Paul also hopes Trump will pull American troops out of the at least 7 countries in which it is currently deployed and engaged in military conflict. “I say just come home,” Paul said when addressing having our military presence overseas. “Just get out of there and let the local people sort (the conflict) this out,” Paul said in response to how America should deal with hot spots like the Ukraine and Syria.

Paul believes the former administration’s posturing and threatening of China was misguided and stated we’d be better of trading goods with China, and all of Asia, rather than trading threats. However, as the Free Thought Project pointed out, Trump is already carrying on this dangerous posture — and China is responding.

Paul warns there’s going to be an acceleration of black ops operations by the CIA and Special Forces missions such as the joint special operations command (JSOC) which, as The Free Thought Project has reported, answers directly to the President of the United States.

BLM Anti-Trump Protest in Seattle: ‘We Need to Start Killing People’

During an anti-Trump protest in Seattle this weekend, an activist associated with the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement took to the megaphone to voice her support for, among other things, “killing people,” and “killing the White House.”

While she said that, another protester can be heard saying, “Burn it!”

She also says, “White people, give your f-ing money, your f-ing house, your ing property, we need it f-ing all,” as another protester responds “reparations!”

Exclusive: Trump to Focus Counter-Extremism Program Solely on Islam — Sources

The Trump administration wants to revamp and rename a U.S. government program designed to counter all violent ideologies so that it focuses solely on Islamist extremism, five people briefed on the matter told Reuters.

The program, “Countering Violent Extremism,” or CVE, would be changed to “Countering Islamic Extremism” or “Countering Radical Islamic Extremism,” the sources said, and would no longer target groups such as white supremacists who have also carried out bombings and shootings in the United States.

Such a change would reflect Trump’s election campaign rhetoric and criticism of former President Barack Obama for being weak in the fight against Islamic State and for refusing to use the phrase “radical Islam” in describing it.

George Soros; A Modern Goebbelist

After Trump’s election victory, Nazi collaborator George Soros joined other global elites along with their mainstream media (MSM) lapdogs to do just that. In accordance with Goebbels playbook they blamed “Russian” hacking for Hillary Clinton’s loss and Donald Trump’s victory. Attacks included organized so called “grass root” riots and a campaign to intimidate members of the Electoral College into changing their votes from Trump to Clinton.

The “Russian hacking” meme was created as a cover for the Wikileaks release of thousands of damning emails which exposed collusion between the Democratic National Committee, the MSM and the Hillary Campaign to steal the Democratic Party’s nomination from Bernie Sanders. Their release showcased Hillary’s blatantly illegal disregard for US Top Secret documents and “pay to play” activities in which Hillary actively engaged while she was Secretary of State. A majority of democrats have proven themselves to be as morally corrupt as the DNC leadership by focusing concern on a scapegoat for Hillary’s loss instead of the scandals her emails exposed.

The similarity between the current attempts by George Soros to destroy what little is remaining of the American Republic and Hitler’s rise to power cannot be ignored. As Hitler’s Beer Hall Putsch failed to raise Hitler to power, so did Soros’s Electoral College non-event and post-election riots fail to propel Hillary into the office of US President. But continuing to reach into his Nazi bag of tricks, Soros and company use another Goebbels strategy:

“Think of the press as a great keyboard on which the government can play.” — Joseph Goebbels

Media Trying Pretty Hard to Get Super Bowl Players to Denounce Trump

It appears football players are much wiser than journalists. That probably comes as no surprise to most of you. Instead of football players I could have said “ prison inmates” or “ derelicts” or “ mollusks,” and most of you would have considered it obvious that they are wiser than journalists. Maybe not more book-smart, mind you, but it’ s one thing to be in possession of a lot of information. It’ s another thing to be able to exercise good judgment in what you do with it.

The Left’s ‘War on Reality’ Grows Bizarre … and Menacing

WASHINGTON — The scale of protests one week into a presidential administration is unlike anything in American history, but the rabid demonstrations also often appear unprecedented in their anger.

And in their disconnect from reality.

For instance, through his spokesman, former President Obama claimed his 2011 executive order was different than President Trump’s recent immigration order because “the president (Obama) fundamentally disagrees with the notion of discriminating against individuals because of their faith or religion.”

However, the text of Trump’s executive order calling for a temporary ban on immigration from seven countries does not include the word “religion.”

Or “faith.” Or “Muslim.” Or “Islam.”

In fact, the list of seven countries named in Trump’s order came from a bipartisan bill Obama himself signed into law, restricting visa waivers for people from Iran, Iraq, Syria, Sudan, Somalia, Libya and Yemen.

Obama’s criticism of Trump’s order simply is not accurate because he is objecting to something that demonstrably did not happen: categorizing immigrants by religion or faith.

And yet that claim is the basis for virtually all the leftist protests against the order.

In parallel with the left’s disconnect from the facts, its protests have become increasingly surreal. In some cases, menacing and threatening.

White House Blackballs CNN; Refuses to Send Surrogates on “Fake News” Network

Of course, this development should come as little surprise to anyone who has been paying attention given that Trump has constantly blasted CNN as a “Fake News” outlet ever since his heated exchange with Jim Acosta at a press conference on January 11th.

.@CNN is in a total meltdown with their FAKE NEWS because their ratings are tanking since election and their credibility will soon be gone!

– — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 12, 2017

We had a great News Conference at Trump Tower today. A couple of FAKE NEWS organizations were there but the people truly get what’s going on

– — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 12, 2017

In fact, since that fateful January 11th tussle, Trump’s surrogates, including Conway, Spicer, Chief of Staff Reince Priebus and even Vice President Mike Pence, have made the rounds on the major Sunday political talk shows, with the notable exception of CNN’s “State of the Union” hosted by Jake Tapper. Tapper noted the absence this past weekend:

“We invited the Trump White House to offer us a guest to provide clarity and an explanation of what the president just did, especially given so much confusion, even within its own government by those who are supposed to carry out this order,” Tapper said on Sunday as he introduced a segment about the Executive Order banning visitors from some countries and putting a hold on the United States’refugee policy. “The Trump White House declined our invitation.”

But while the Trump administration has refused to send surrogates on CNN talk shows, Spicer has confirmed that the “Fake News” outlet won’t be frozen out of press briefings. Speaking at an event at George Washington University on Monday, Spicer pointed out that he’s answered CNN’s questions in the regular daily briefings but also noted that he’s “not going to sit around and engage with people who have no desire to actually get something right.”

Of course, Trump’s stance toward CNN is not terribly different from how the Obama administration handled Fox News. That said, somehow we suspect the mainstream media will be slightly more outraged over Trump’s treatment of CNN than they were over Obama’s hostility toward Fox News over the years.

Montreal Police Arrest Kirkland Man Accused of Online Hate Speech Targeting Muslims

Provincial police came across remarks while monitoring social media sites, then notified Montreal police

Montreal police have arrested a Kirkland man accused of making hateful social media comments targeting Muslims.

The man was arrested overnight at a home on de Shediac Street, near de Berne Street in Kirkland.

Const. Raphael Bergeron said members of the Sûreté du Québec came across the alleged remarks while monitoring various social media sites.

They transmitted the information to Montreal police. Investigators were questioning the man, whose name has not been released.

It is still unclear what charges he may face, or whether he will appear in court Wednesday or be released on a promise to appear.

Montreal police Chief Philippe Pichet said Tuesday that since Sunday night’s attack at a Quebec City mosque, there has been a spike in reports of hate-related comments.

The force is hiring 55 people whose jobs will include monitoring social media sites for hate speech.

But the SNP, Plaid Cymru and the Liberal Democrats opposed the bill, while 47 Labour MPs and Tory ex-chancellor Ken Clarke rebelled.

The bill now faces further scrutiny in the Commons and the House of Lords before it can become law.

The prime minister has set a deadline of 31 March for invoking Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty, getting official talks with the EU started. The bill returns to the Commons next week.

Donald Trump’s Mother: From a Scottish Island to New York’s Elite

Donald Trump’s mother, Mary Anne MacLeod, was born and brought up on the Hebridean island of Lewis but emigrated to New York to live a very different life.

Mary Anne was one of tens of thousands of Scots who travelled to the US and Canada in the early years of the last century looking to escape economic hardship at home.

She first left Lewis for New York in 1930, at the age of 18, to seek work as a domestic servant.

Six years later she was married to successful property developer Frederick Trump, the son of German migrants and one of the most eligible men in New York.

Italian Couple Arrested for Sending Weapons to ISIS

Italian police on Tuesday arrested a married couple on suspicion of sending weapons to a faction of terrorist group Isis.

Police believe the pair sent weapons including assault rifles, surface-to-air missiles and even helicopters to Iran and Libya between 2011 and 2015, despite an embargo. The couple in their 60’s have been named as Annamaria Fontana and Mario Di Leva — known as Jafaar since their conversion to Islam, according to local paper Napoli Today.

Their son and the CEO of the Italian Helicopters Society were also reportedly arrested in connection with the weapons trafficking.

Fontana was well-known locally as a politician, having served two terms as a socialist councillor in San Giorgio a Cremano, Campania, in the 80’s and 90’s.

In recent years she had moved away from politics and begun to visit the Middle East regularly with her husband, Il Corriere del Mezzogiorno reported, building up close ties with the Libyan government and meeting Iran’s former premier.

Now their passports have been cancelled, the authorities will be alerted if they attempt to cross back into the Netherlands or use their travel documents elsewhere.

In addition, the passports of several dozen people who are suspected of planning to travel to IS-held territory have been cancelled. Schoof said he hopes this will prevent them from leaving the country. So far, some 40 people have come back to the Netherlands after spending time in Iraq and Syria, Schoof said.

A record 744 rapes were reported in Denmark last year, doubling the number of reports in 2014 according to figures from Statistics Denmark that were first reported by Metroxpress.

According to a consultant to the Danish National Police, the sharp increase is due in part to police districts better recording rape reports.

“We are very pleased that we now have more accurate numbers on how many men and women have reported rapes.

UK: Brexit Bill is Passed

Britain passed the point of no return in its historic battle to cut ties with Brussels tonight as MPs backed the Brexit Bill.

The Commons endorsed the legislation by 498 votes to 114 after the government saw off a desperate bid by more than 100 Remoaners to block it.

In the first of a crucial set of votes in the Commons, a ‘wrecking’ amendment that would have effectively killed the law was defeated by 336 to 100.

The House then gave the Bill its second reading by another huge margin, despite the opposition from Labour MPs, the SNP and most Liberal Democrats.

Tunisian Terror Suspect ‘Had Already Committed Attack in Tunis’

A Tunisian man arrested in Hesse on Wednesday on suspicion of recruiting for Isis is also accused of involvement in the deadly 2015 attack on the Bardo Museum in Tunis, prosecutors said.

Tunisian authorities issued an arrest warrant for the 36-year-old last year on suspicion of “participating in planning and carrying out” the attack, as well as a deadly jihadist assault on the border town of Ben Guerdane last March, the prosecutor’s office in the western state of Hesse said in a statement.

Twenty-one people, mostly European tourists, were killed at the scene of the attack of the Bardo National Museum in March 2015, which was claimed by Isis. A further victim died ten days later.

Tunisian police killed two of the gunmen during the assault, but the third attacker managed to escape.

Police in Hesse raided over 50 properties early on Wednesday morning and arrested the Tuinisian suspect over an alleged plan to carry out a terror attack in Germany.

Report: Al-Qaeda Militants Tipped Off Ahead of Trump’s First Seal Raid

How did the militants know about the incoming forces?

On Sunday a Navy SEAL raid in Yemen resulted in the death of U.S. commando William “Ryan” Owens, as well as the injury of three others during a firefight with al-Qaeda militants.

The raid was Trump’s first authorized counterterrorism operation, but was planned for months by the Obama administration.

The New York Times reported, “Obama administration aides had deliberated extensively over the proposed operation, weighing the value of any information that might be recovered against the risk to the Special Operations forces plunging into hostile territory.”

However, a source later told ABC News that “Al-Qaeda fighters seemed ready for Sunday’s deadly Navy SEAL raid in Yemen.”

The source also claimed, “it was clear that the AQAP fighters in the compound knew the Americans were coming and engaged them with heavy weapons.”

Given the Obama administration’s extensive knowledge of the operation and the source’s claim, could they be responsible for tipping off the militants in order to botch Trump’s first military raid?

The Obama administration has been involved in similar controversies in the past, such as one incident in Kabul, Afghanistan in 2006 when a Chinook helicopter was shot down.

Charlie Strange, the father of late SEAL Team Six member Michael Strange who died in the helicopter attack, is still searching for the truth surrounding his son’s death.

Strange believes Michael’s death, along with the death of 30 other servicemen, may have been an inside job.

In 1971, Muslims Murdered 2.4 Million Hindus and Raped 200,000 Hindu Women

In the wake of renewed violence against Hindus in Pakistan, and with more than 100 Hindu families seeking asylum in India, Director of the Canadian Hindu Advocacy group spoke to People of Shambhala. Mr. Banerjee talks about the background to the conflict, and why Pakistan was created in 1947. Why the West should include Hinduism, not just the “Judeo-Christian” tradition. And he also discusses Islam and violence against Hindus and the West, and how we can defend our values and freedoms…

There is nothing surprising about any of this because Islam was introduced into the Asian subcontinent with the objective of occupying and exterminating the Hindus. According to the historian William Durant, and other historians, an estimated 80 million Hindus were killed, were slaughtered, and thousands and thousands of Hindu temples were smashed, and mosques were built on top of them. The Muslims of India tried very hard over the period of their 700 years [of occupation] to wipe out the Hindus. But there was resistance from some of the Hindu kingdoms. They never had full control over India so they were unable to achieve that goal. But that’s the eternal goal. According to Islam, Hinduism is the lowest form of life on the planet. Because Hindus, according to them, they’re polytheistic, they believe in multiple gods. They believe we worship idols, and idol worship is a sin in Islam.

PoS: One thing that has struck me is just the extent of the attacks on Hindus, Buddhists, Yezidis, Zoroastrians, Kalash. Yet we don’t hear anything about this. You mentioned the war of 71; 2.4 million dead, 200,000 Hindu women raped, but we don’t hear anything about that in the West.

RB: No you don’t, because there’s a systematic effort by Muslims and petrodollars to cover it up. The reason you don’t hear about it is because they make tremendous effort to silence it.

PoS: In all fairness, some Middle Eastern newspapers that probably cater mostly to Muslims have covered some of it, but you don’t seem to find it in the West, which is even more incredible. Why do you think Western journalists won’t cover something like that? The West always portrays itself as caring about minorities and being the people that always stand up to stop genocide, and that are always campaigning against violence against minorities. But nothing. […]

PoS: On that note, Subramanian Swamy, the Hindu professor at Harvard, was fired because he wrote an article on how to wipe out Islamic terror [in India]. I read it. I didn’t find it shocking… I suppose [at the most controversial point] he’s saying that non-Hindus would have to appreciate their Hindu roots or they wouldn’t be allowed to vote. What was your take on his article and on his being fired?

RB: The article was a hundred percent correct. He did not say — as has been claimed — that all non-Hindus should be forced to convert to Hinduism or anything like that. He didn’t even say that non-Hindus should be oppressed or treated badly within India. He just said they should have a respect for Hinduism, and that they should acknowledge the proper history, especially the history of the Muslims in India. There was no such thing as Islam in India before about 1,000 AD. Muslims invaded and forcibly converted millions of Hindus to Islam. That’s just a historical fact. And that they should acknowledge that historical fact.

Islamic Invasion of India: The Greatest Genocide in History

The genocide suffered by the Hindus and Sikhs of India at the hands of Arab, Turkish, Mughal and Afghan occupying forces for a period of 800 years is as yet formally unrecognised by the World.

The only similar genocide in the recent past was that of the Jewish people at the hands of the Nazis.

The holocaust of the Hindus in India was of even greater proportions, the only difference was that it continued for 800 years, till the brutal regimes were effectively overpowered in a life and death struggle by the Sikhs in the Punjab and the Hindu Maratha armies in other parts of India in the late 1700’s.

We have elaborate literary evidence of the World’s biggest holocaust from existing historical contemporary eyewitness accounts. The historians and biographers of the invading armies and subsequent rulers of India have left quite detailed records of the atrocities they committed in their day-to-day encounters with India’s Hindus…

The Islamic historians and scholars have recorded with utmost glee and pride of the slaughters of Hindus, forced conversions, abduction of Hindu women and children to slave-markets, and the destruction of temples carried out by the warriors of Islam during 800AD to 1700 AD. Millions of Hindus were converted to Islam by the sword in this period” (historian Durant cited in Khan p 201)

And Rizwan Salim (1997) writes what the Arab invaders really did:…

The inhuman behaviour applied to the whole Indian population by Muslims was the same whether the Muslims were Sufis, Arabs, Afghanis, Turks, or Mogul as all followed Islam’s laws, text and the fine example of Mohammad. It should also be noted that the violence and enslavement continued even after they had virtual control over India because the aim was not merely to conquer but to force all into Islam. Muslims did not come to join Indian society, they came to wipe it out and replace it with Islam-which tells them that they own everything because it’s the booty promised by allah. The pagans/idolaters, polytheists had to convert or die and only then could there be (Islamic) peace! Slaves were the just reward for Islam’s fighters-part of the booty promised by allah.

Muslims Killed 600 Million Hundus!

According to my calculation Muslims killed over 600 million people. I can substantiate these numbers with facts. For example, Aurangzeb killed 5 million in 20 years. Bahmani Sultans had an agend to kill 100000 every year for 250 years only is South India. that itself makes 25 millions. And murdering civilians was going on throught the country simultaneously. Bahamni Sultans were only tip of the iceberg. Babur killed 1 million in 3 years. Even emperor Akbar killed 2 millions during initial decades of his rule, though he softened a bit later. Timur Lang [Tamerlane] killed 1 million in 1 month. Qasim killed 2 million people. Ghazni Mohammed and Gauri Mohammed together killed nearly 30 million during their added total of 30 invasions. Tipu Sultan in south killed 10 million. In Bengal Muslims killed nearly 30 millions. Regular incursions from the Arabs, Iranians, etc killed nearly 50 millions. Nadir Shah killed 100000 civilians in one day.

The list is endless….

Muslim rascals kept on killing people. But people are very strongly bound to their original religion, so could not completely annihilate them. Muslim beasts started coming here nearly 1200 years back. Divide 600 millions by 1200 or 1/2 millions per year. That means Muslim killed 500,000 people per year. It is a reasonable estimate.

If you want recent proof: In Bangladesh, Pakistan’s Muslim-soldiers killed 3 million Hindus in one year in 1971. The total Bangladesh population in 1971 was 60 millions [50 million Muslims and 10 million Hindus.] Out of 10 million Hindus, Muslims killed 3 million. This is done in the recent times in spite of so much of media exposure, international observation, and monitoring. Then you can easily understand how many millions of Hindus, Muslims would have killed between 800 and 1800 AD.

In 1947, Muslims were 9% in India, Hindus were 10% in Pakistan and 25% in Bangladesh. But in 2008, Muslims are 18% in India, Hindus are 1% in Pakistan and 10% in Bangladesh.

Britain Grants Anonymity to Migrant Appeals, Concealing Their Criminality From the Public

How the British public are now banned from knowing the identity of asylum seekers — even when their stories are patently bogus, writes SUE REID

Countless foreigners fighting to remain in the UK at Britain’s biggest asylum and immigration appeals centre, Taylor House in central London Automatic anonymity is now given in all asylum-seekers’ appeals In other immigration appeals based on human rights grounds, claimants can simply download a form from a government website requesting secrecy Even those who don’t request this often find the judge steps in at the first sight of the Press and grants an anonymity order anyway Disturbingly, the Ministry of Justice admitted it does not publish how many non-asylum immigration appeals are heard in secret…

Automatic anonymity is now given in all asylum-seekers’ appeals. In other immigration appeals, where asylum is not a factor but which involve a request to remain here on human rights grounds, those appealing can simply download a form from a government website requesting secrecy at their hearing.

Even those, like Patrick, who don’t request this often find the judge steps in at the first sight of the Press and grants an anonymity order anyway.

The result is that thousands of foreigners appealing to remain in this country are actively encouraged to do so — in secret.

Two immigration lawyers at Taylor House confirmed that it was now common practice for the Home Office not to challenge such requests.

Not only are identities never known, but the public is never told the judges’ rulings — which are issued privately a few weeks after the hearing ends.

Disturbingly, the Ministry of Justice admitted this week that it does not publish how many non-asylum immigration appeals are heard in secret.

However, official figures last month showed that almost 63,000 foreigners were awaiting appeals — an increase of 20 per cent on a year ago…

One Home Office official at Taylor House told us the system is widely exploited. He pointed out a recent rise in the number of people claiming to be gay.

This, he said, was because sexuality is hard to prove, as European human rights laws prohibit intimate questioning of asylum-seekers on such matters. Last year the Home Office issued a 40-page directive warning its staff.

The official said: ‘The British judicial system is being laughed at. This country is an easy place to come and say the “right thing” — for instance, that you are gay and from a homophobic nation — so you get to remain here.’

He cited instances of asylum-seekers, about to be deported on other grounds, playing what he called ‘the gay card’ at the last minute.

‘I even had one case where a guy with five children claimed to be gay and told the judge he only ever had sex with a woman those five times.’

Caroline Glick: The Lessons of Roosevelt’s Failures

Is US President Donald Trump the new Franklin Delano Roosevelt? Does his immigration policy mimic Roosevelt’s by adopting a callous, bigoted position on would-be asylum seekers from the Muslim world?

At a press conference on June 5, 1940, Roosevelt gave an unspeakably cynical justification for his administration’s refusal to permit the desperate Jews of Nazi Germany to enter the US.

In Roosevelt’s words, “Among the refugees [from Germany], there are some spies… And not all of them are voluntary spies — it is rather a horrible story but in some of the other countries that refugees out of Germany have gone to, especially Jewish refugees, they found a number of definitely proven spies.”

The current media and left-wing uproar over the executive order US President Donald Trump signed on Saturday which enacts a temporary ban on entry to the US of nationals from seven Muslim majority countries is extraordinary on many levels. But one that stands out is the fact that opponents of Trump’s move insist that Trump is reenacting the bigoted immigration policies the US maintained throughout the Holocaust…

Mexican Official Threatens to Combat President Trump by “Unleashing Drug Cartels”

There will be war in the streets, or at least there could be.

The strong armed tactics against Mexico are not making officials happy south of the border.

Now, with an executive order facilitating the deportation of illegal immigrants — and especially those who have committed criminal offenses — as well as building a wall on the border, President Trump has many Mexicans up in arms.

Jorge Castañeda Gutman, former Secretary of Foreign Affairs in Mexico, took things a step further during an interview on CNN with Fareed Zakaria when he suggested that Mexico’s previous cooperation with the U.S. in curbing the flow of drugs and illegal immigrants could end.

Instead, the cartels could be essentially unleashed upon the U.S. — retribution for tough policies on Mexico and other immigrant-producing countries in the Latin American world.

These astonishing words could open up an economic gang war against the U.S. — – very irresponsible words that reveal just how connected Mexico’s leadership is with the violent drug cartels who operate from their territories:

Sweden Extends Border Controls Until Spring 2017

Sweden will extend border controls and ID checks in the south of the country by a further three months, the country’s government has confirmed.

The border controls at ports in the south of Sweden and on the Swedish side of the Öresund Bridge to Denmark were brought in during the autumn of 2015, a year where Sweden received a record 163,000 asylum applications. ID checks on trains crossing the Öresund Bridge were introduced soon after.

The measures in the passport-free Schengen zone are only supposed to be temporary and originally designed to last six months, but they were extended by a further half a year in May 2016, then three months more the following November.

The European Commission has given the five countries in the Schengen area with the measures in place permission to extend them by a further three months still until May 2017, which Sweden has now confirmed it will do.

The Real “Muslim Ban”

After five days of MSM hysteria, President Trump remains justifiably unruffled by the establishment organs’ opprobrium. His January 27 executive order on immigration and refugees is reasonable and legal, and it enjoys strong popular support.

In the medium-to-long term Trump has much bigger fish to fry than a temporary ban on citizens from seven failed, war-torn, or dysfunctional majority-Muslim states, which were singled out by the Obama Administration under the 2015 Terrorist Travel Prevention Act. Prima facie this was no “Muslim ban”; the most populous majority-Muslim countries (Indonesia, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Egypt, Turkey) were unaffected. The really important part of Trump’s executive order is contained in its Section 1. Purpose:….

43 thoughts on “Gates of Vienna News Feed 2/1/2017

  1. ** “The United States has always stood for enlightenment, democracy and freedom,” Schulz said. **

    Not to mention:
    waging aggressive, unconstitutional war against Libya, Yemen, and Syria,
    overthrowing an elected government in Ukraine,
    arming, supplying, and training loathsome al-Qaida and ISIS toads in Syria and Iraq while waging pretend war against ISIS,
    recklessly provoking Russia with military maneuvers on its borders and trying to incorporate Ukraine and Georgia into NATO,
    arrogantly imposing petty sanctions on Russia,
    supporting the MB, Saudi Arabia, and Qatar in the spread of Islamic terror around the world,
    dismembering the territory of Serbia, a wartime ally and friend to Russia, and
    broadcasting lies about Pres. Putin’s bad character and Russian “aggression” and “expansionism.”

  2. So President Trump is “un American” according to Martin Schulz. Nothing is too silly for those E.U. people, at least in my humble opinion.
    Considering what he has done in his life so far, and taking into account all the ups and downs, I would say the President is as American as apple pie.

    No one could accuse Schulz of being ‘un E.U.’

  3. ** the bigoted immigration policies the US maintained throughout the Holocaust **

    The zealous Caroline Glick enlightens us on American bigotry.

    • Well I remember Canada had a terrible record of refusing Jew during the Holocaust, but how anyone can equivocate Jews during the Holocaust with moslems today is just shameful!

    • The Jew was not welcome anywhere at that time and just to enforce that point, during WW2 the allies became alerted to what the ‘final solution’ was all about but chose to do nothing, even though many allied bombers flew over some of those ‘camps’ on a daily basis.

  4. Well, I truly hope the Trump administration throws out all the Muslims in their newly named Countering Islamic Extremism committee or whatever it is.

    • I was hoping someone would advise Trump that there is no such thing as islamic extremism. The violence perpetrated by muslims is _orthodox_ islam, not extremist. There is no “radical”/”extremist” islam, there is no more perfect example of islam than ISIS. There is nothing done by ISIS that isn’t commanded in the qur’an, or in the hadith.

      • Back in their hay day, Islam used formerly Christian architects in the Babylon region – the Fertile Crescent – to design what few buildings they erected. All of their architecture is second hand.

        Imagine how sterile a culture has to be to not produce music or art (using the Prophet as an excuse), or theatre, or intellectual thought that wasn’t borrowed from the Greeks via Christians. Islam doesn’t even rise to second-rate. And you can’t call their few efforts “derivative” if they were mostly produced under the threat of persecution.

        Oh, wait: they did create new forms of torture, ones that not even the Romans had thought of.

        • Not only was their intellectual thought borrowed from the Greeks, but also from the Hindus. Wikipedia says:”he Hindu–Arabic numeral system[1] or Hindu numeral system,[2] a positional decimal numeral system, is the most common system for the symbolic representation of numbers in the world. It was invented between the 1st and 4th centuries by Indian mathematicians. The system was adopted by Persian mathematicians (Muḥammad ibn Mūsā al-Khwārizmī’s c. 825 book On the Calculation with Hindu Numerals) and Arab mathematicians (Al-Kindi’s c. 830 volumes On the Use of the Hindu Numerals) by the 9th century. It later spread to medieval Europe by the High Middle Ages.”

  5. Since Ted Kennedy and LBJ’s racist immigration law of 1965, Europeans (i.e. Christians!) have been largely barred from coming to America. Let’s get rid of this foul law so Christians can escape the Muslim conquest of Europe designed by the Left decades ago.

  6. “German and EU Taxpayers Will Pay Nearly $46,000,000,000 to Deal With Problems Caused by Muslim Migrants”
    Why didn’t they give that money to the German Christian couples that wanted to have more than 2 children? I know … because then they would be racists … are Christians a race? I know … the moz would quickly join the queue saying they are Christians since tender age just to get the benefits. Funny the moz morality: they even deny their beliefs just to get some money without having to work. The Germans are paying for their stupidity. They could allow immigration from Christian countries only, in a controlled way, they could even require it to be only from German descendants, like Japan does, and that would already be more than enough. But they chose the moz world. And forced that to whole Europe. Now they pay for their mistakes with money, rapes, violence and ethnic replacement.

    • It is not stupidity that is driving the Germans and the Europeans into suicide but an agenda that has been in the planning for hundreds of years and to which we get to see a glimpse of its undermining aspects – as is what is now occurring – every so often.

      Do you have a Bible?

      • Adolph Hitler couldn’t have dreamt of a more sinister plan himself. The whole of Europe has been flooded, Frau Merkel can pull the drain from the tub once the whole place is soaked.

        • Yes indeed, but not everyone has become indoctrinated and I will always use what Russia is to day as compared to it’s Soviet days as an example of how totalitarian systems fool only a minority.

  7. The Dutch government is increasingly hostile towards the USA. Mr Mark Rutte calls mr. Trumps executive order about the immigration from the infamous 7 islamic nations discrimination against muslims.

    Not a word about the racisme in islam infected Saoedi Arabia. Not a single word!

    I hope mr. Trump will demand apologies from mr. Rutte’s government.

  8. Good,
    “will reportedly be changed to ‘Countering Islamic Extremism'”

    Even better,
    “will reportedly be changed to ‘Confronting Islam'”

    • Precisely. Erdogan and other muslims have said it publicly: There is no radical islam, no moderate islam. There is only islam.

  9. Dead Ted assured US us that there would be no change in demographics. Today the Euro sausages are beginning to realise that maybe the woozy character in the wobbling Bruxelles Reichstag is just barely hanging on to his Euro bottle offer of more shame. The unelected waffling about peace and unity while creating disunity, weakness and import of war. They are really really mad. Breaking everywhere up into nothings. Thats unity?? A perfect vacuum for ISIS though?

  10. America is big enough to take criticism from the Dutch — we don’t really pay attention to them (other than Geert of course, who is a true hero).

    America is also big enough to take criticism from anyone — period. I am sick and tired of every dewy-eyed idiot piling on America. Now that we have Trump, we will be the strong America everyone used to know. Yeah, I’ve got my fingers crossed that I’m right but I do think I am.

    So much of the world is going to hell in a hand-basket (to use an old-fashioned term) but I am truly feeling slightly hopeful that things will change for the better. The mid-east is a big problem, but (God forgive me) a few well-placed bombs might wake them up to better behavior.

    Colonel Bunny, you are right in many ways. I didn’t know that about Glick but I will look it up (not that I can do anything about it).

    I hope I didn’t sound TOO anti-social but I am getting sick and tired of all the […] for the last how-many years since 9-11? It is time for America to stand up again. America has been the leader of the world since WWII and I think is still capable of doing good under the right leadership. The last 8 years have been one long disappointment. I am hopeful that things will now change for the better: for America and for the rest of the world. Peace, amen.

    • It’s probably the infamous Teddy Kennedy, ninth child of parents who would have done the world a favor had they decided to remain single.

      Look up Chappaquiddick. Or better yet, see this movie review from 2015. Yes, they actually made a film about it. Maybe TK was dead by then?

      http://www.nationalreview.com/corner/428528/chappaquiddick-movie-will-destroy-ted-kennedys-reputation

      They sum it up as “he drives, she dies”…a lot of women had their lives ruined by Kennedys, but not as many as one Clinton and his avenging wife managed to destroy. Now they’re grooming Chelsea for some office or other, though her parents will be long dead before she makes it beyond, say, Senator. And yes, there are enough brain-dead lefties in NY to elect her. Just as there were in Taxachusetts to keep pushing the lever for Kennedy.

      The whole thing reminds me again that America is no good at creating political dynasties. The first one – the John Quincy Adams clan – had their attempts destroyed by that country hick, General Andrew Jackson. The Adams’ family made sure the social pushback in Washington was as ugly as possible. But he was re-elected anyway…

      There must be some permanent strain in cultures and sub-cultures where people who belong to particular groups tend to continue doing the same thing. On both sides of the divide.

  11. Merkel has just been told off severely by Erdogan for daring to use the term ‘islamist terror’:

    “Erdogan immediately retaliated that there is no islamist terror, that Islam is a religion of peace and that he forbade such expressions. There it was, the slap in Merkel’s face in front of the electorate. Erdogan accused her of injuring all muslims with her choice of words. She attempted to enlighten him about the difference between ‘islamic’ and ‘islamist’ (the latter is Islam with demands of political power).

    But she seemed poweless, compared to Erdogan’s sultan-like sentence, and his voters will only have gathered that he powerfully defended Islam against a non-believer and put her in her place.”

  13. Mexico giving the cartels free rein could do some damage. America is only 5% of the world’s population but we consume 50% of the world’s illegal narcotics. Most Americans are self-indulgent children, so if that garbage is around, they will take it and make themselves everybody’s problem. We desperately need a Theodore Dalrymple to take the national stage here on that issue.

    • Legalize and regulate. It will take the wind out of the cartels just like the end of the Prohibition took the wind out of the illegal alcohol cartels. Then put some of the taxes collected to help people who get hooked, and use the rest to build up the economy so that the working/middle classes are economically viable again.

      • That sounds like a good idea in theory, but in practice it just doesn’t work. Just look at Holland. Just by legalizing pot, it became a festering boil on the [posterior] of Europe. It’s created lax attitudes toward recreational drug use and usage of harder drugs has skyrocketed and the country has become a major hub through which drugs are trafficked to the rest of Europe. Combined with the selective breeding of pot plants that upped the THC content from 5% in the 1970s to the current ~30% and just pot itself has become a major health problem. And worst of all it’s become taboo to even acknowledge these problems for fear of being seen as a regressive buzzkill.

        If you absolutely had to indulge people’s complete abdication of self control, the Portugal model would be better. Manufacturing, trafficking, and sale of drugs are still criminal offenses, but use is a civil offence which gets you a fine and a mandatory treatment program. Users get treatment, don’t have a criminal record that interferes with their attempts to “go straight,” and get access to job training/placement services. It’s been quite successful. Personally I prefer Singapore’s approach, though.

        • Unsurprised, the problem with Holland was, they were in it alone. So everybody and their brother traveled to Holland to use and to deal. That is not a sustanable situation.

          America is at the root of the Drug War, and forced other people countries’ participation. Letting go of this particular stick, and creating a better example itself would go a long way toward sane drug policies, and lessen violence and corruption around the world.

          Stronger THC is not a problem — people just smoke less. And do you call a glass of wine with dinner “a complete abdication of control”?

          Why do people refuse to learn from Prohibition? It boggles the mind.

      • Vera, the distribution of what is now illicit drugs is used to undermine our own culture – don’t you realize that? It makes morons of those who take to using it and makes liars of those who push its use as being of no harm to the user.

        Making it legal would increase the now obvious social and health problems we have throughout the West ten fold or more, and its impact would be felt for generations.

        There are no government statistics on the social fallout of illicit drug use because governments know of the very real problem that it is causing. So they attack smokers and drinkers of alcoholic beverages with impunity that has a tendency to take the heat off illicit drug use which is causing the most damage.

        • Nemesis, I grew up under communism. There, the govt abused us for putting the wrong thoughts in our heads.

          Here the govt abuses people for putting the wrong plants in their body. Just as absurd. If you believe in freedom and self-determination, how does that add up for you? THAT is what is undermining our freedom based culture, and fills the jails to the gills with users and small time peddlers. Empty the jails of these folks to prepare them for the influx of criminal aliens, I say.

          When it comes to health damage, smoking is way out there, uncomparable with any other drugs, legal or illegal. And responsible use of alcohol must be learned — something the Prohibition made impossible. They are not harmless substance — and yet we have learned to deal with them well.

          If you support treating human being like children, sure, prohibit plants and mushrooms and books and ideas. A fine way to take down western civ.

          • Vera, a moral people would not present the kinds of problems that are so obvious to many today. It has been the undermining of our institutions and establishments that has caused a break down in society to the point where people now openly attack one another simply because someone may have looked sideways at ’em or expressed a different political view!

            And, you fail to understand the underlying factors as to why there is such a problem with illegal drug use.

            Once upon a time we all lived in an ordered society, and I am of an age to remember that, where there was an expectation on all who paraded publicly to display social niceties and to dress appropriately.

            Compare that ordered society with what we have today.

            It is every man for himself and ****** the consequences – that is a recipe for social disaster for which there are now daily examples. And illegal drug use is just one of them.

            You mention a drug war – there has never been a war on drugs because governments were coerced into accepting long ago that there would be more political mileage in attacking the smoker and the alcohol user – and there are shades of Nazi policy in that if you get to look deep enough.

            You make an assumption that I support humans being treated as children – I do not! What I do support though is tough legislation to lock up all illegal drug users and sellers for lengthy sentences that would be a real deterrent to the manufacturer, the seller and the user.

            It is through a determined criminal justice system that we can beat the scourge of drugs.

            You choose to ignore the very real damage that these drugs do to the social fabric and to the human body that is far more damaging than alcohol or tobacco combined in a naive effort to champion its legal use.

            I’m telling you now, that is very dangerous thinking on your part.

  14. Interesting analogy on a small scale of what immigration officials are facing: See below “Because his bouncers can’t differentiate between peaceful and aggressive refugees, the innkeeper gave a general refugee ban.”

    http://www.pi-news.net/2017/02/club-kein-zutritt-mehr-fuer-fluechtlinge/

    “No more Access for Refugees

    Sigmaringen: When parties are celebrated or events take place at Alfons X, refugees no longer have access. The owner Neff Beser justifies his firm stance with the increasing incidents. His patrons feel disturbed by the refugees. “Many can’t adapt their behaviour”, the proprietor explains his decision. Because his bouncers can’t differentiate between peaceful and aggressive refugees, the innkeeper gave a general refugee ban.”

    “Last summer the situation for his patrons was unbearable, the proprietor says. Especially outdoor patrons were frequently harassed. ‘Time and again patrols got up and left because of it.’

    The outdoor part of his business made a 30% loss last summer because of this.

    More incidents are listed under the above link. It gives me *absolutely no pleasure* to translate this stuff, let alone to have to keep translating the descriptions of these men (dark skinned, broken German etc). It’s utterly depressing. But the English-speaking world needs to know what German women (and a boy in thes cases below) are going through.

    Freiburg: Bad Krozingen, January 31rd, just after 5pm: a 28-jährige women walking near the train station with her 4 y.o. child was sexually insulted by a man – dark skinned, very tall, thin and bearded. He asked her for sexual favours in English and attempted to get near her. She was rescued by a bus driver.

    Frank­furt: Abiye H. (47) was defended as having ‘childishly approached’ [the victims] and ‘only wanting to play’ by his caregivers in court. In August at the Eschers­hei­m outdoor pool the Eritrean man (3 yrs in Germany) approached young girls, hugged a 12 y.o., then a 14 y.o. and was repelled by both. Then he approached an 11 y.o. and pushed his head between her legs.

    Freiburg: A 36 y.o. Gambian man is suspected of molesting several women on Sunday on the train from Waldshut to Bad Säckingen.

    Neubrandenburg: Police carried out genetic testing (saliva) to investigate a rape. The perpetrator spoke broken German and looked ‘southern’.

    Leipzig: a 62 y.o. woman walking was accosted in poor German by a foreign man, who exposed himself, made indecent suggestions and tried to grab her posterior. She told him to stop and he beat her in the face, hurling her onto the ground, then kicked her in the stomach.

    Freiburg: On December 23rd, 11.20 pm a 17 y.o. woman was held by three southern-looking men and grabbed by her breasts and genitalia.

    Lindau: A 20 y.o. man from Somalia is suspected of an attempted sexual attack against a 7 y.o. boy.

    Mainz: On 22.12.2016, 06:52 a.m. a 55 y.o woman on the bus was attacked by a man who violently grabbed her breast before jumping off the bus. His description: 20-30 years, very dark skin.

    Mainz: 22.12.2016, 07:56 a.m. a 25 y.o. woman was sexually insulted by a dark skinned man on the tram who then grabbed her breast when she got off the tram (he had already grabbed her upper body in the Münsterplatz). Some other passengers held him back for a bit, but he escaped and followed her. She managed to hide.

  16. The world is going to hell. Again. Mostly in “beautiful” Europa (except for a few exceptions — Hungary comes to mind). Rinse and repeat since it keeps happening over and over. I personally think smoking and drinking alcohol are less evil and/or dangerous than doing drugs.

    People who don’t read history keep repeating it of course. Damn, I’m glad I live in Kansas! We have guns here.

    If Europe were still armed, at least some of these problems would cease and desist. I would not like to live in Europe in these times. Of course it is their own fault for letting all those muslims in — again, an example of not learning from history.

  17. Forgot to mention some of the books on my desk awaiting my attention. One is The Myth of the Andalusion Paradise. Another is Mohammed and Charlemagne Revisted. I can hardly wait. However, the daily news tells me all I need to know about muslims.
